The Fate of the Silver Bill Will Be Decided. Silver Men Hopeful of Securing Very lilberal Ooaoeaslona—The Tucker Bill to Be Toted on In the Bonn. By the Associated Press. Washington, Oct. B.—The momentons event in the senate this week will be the attempt to secure a continuous session of that body. Tbat tbe at tempt will produce important results can hardly be doubted by any one familiar with the situation. The de sire as well as the belief in tbe cham ber Lb that the present week will bring a solution of tbe problem. The opinion is expressed that there will be a compromise of tome character agreed to and put through. The proposition to simply extend the Sherman law for an indefinite period, with reduced monthly purchases, teems te be taking shape as the moat likely of the various propositions to receive approval. The proposition to include a bond issue le also receiving attention, nod tbo pres ent indications are tbat while many Democrats may not agree to such a proposition, it may be put through with the assistance of tbe Republicans. THE SILVER MEN'S HOPES. Tbe senators from the silver producing states are constantly consulted and ad vised with at to the terms of agreement, hut tbey will not be allowed to dictate in the matter of a compromise. It may bo stated, however, that the silver party in the senate, including beth Democrats end Republicans, it not to anxious to secure a compromise at supposed. The silver men appreciate that they are in the minority and cannot dictate tbo terms of capitulation, bnt ftel that if thjpy can make it clear tbat they will bt able to go on with the debate indefin itely, they will be able to secure very liberal concessions. One point on which t hey still seem determined to hold out, is against fixing the limitation of the time silver purchase* shall cease, within Cleveland's administration, " and the chnncetare they will win in the matter. What the silver men would like best, next to free coinage, would be a contin uation of the tilter bill, that would be a triumph and not a compromise. TUB CKDOIAL TEST. Senator Manderaon intimated yester day that he coniidsred this result pos sible, and having canvassed the cham ber very thoroughly to secure a cempro mise, Manderson is qnite competent to paps upon the point. Snch a result could be brought about by taking a re cess until the regnlar meeting day ia December, or by taking up some other bill. There is a general dealte among the senators te get away. If, there fore, tbe night session experiment eboald not bring tbe passage oi the bill there ia a possibility that a recess reso lution would eecnrs a majority in its support. The elections bill will possibly reach tbe senate early in tbe week, but tbsrs will likely be do immediate effort to take it up. THE TCSKSH BILL. An important matter will occupy the attention of the honse thia week. Tues day, according to the terms of the spec ial order, the Tucker bill will go to a vote. Although the Democrats are unit ,ed in the demand for the repeal of the laws permitting federal supervieion at the polls, come northern Democrats be lieve the Tacker bill, which blots oat all the laws on the atatute booka relating to federal supervision, pnee too far; indeed, even some southern Democrata believe come of the statutes which the Tucker bill aims to repeal, should remain on the books. A Democratic crocus will be held tomorrow night to give the Demo crats an opportunity to discuss the pro posed modifications and decide whether any amendments to tho pending bill eball be adopted. The prevailing opin ion among Democrata who have can vassed the actuation, ia tbat the Tucker bill will be agreed upon aa it stands. Cleveland is reported to have said he hoped every vestige of the law perm t ting federal interference would be wiped out, and tbia expression ia expected to have effect in the caucus. After the disposal of the elections bill, the bill from the banking and cur rency committee will again come up. * CHINESE REGISTRATION. Thursday, if the banking bill is dis posed of, tbe McCreary ssbstitute for the Everett bill to amend the Geary exclusion act, so as to extend the time for the registration ef the Chinese, will come up and be voted on after two days. The bill will bo bitterly opposed by some of tbe Pacific slope members, espe cially Geary, who does not like its pro visions and who believes the bill only temporizes with the situation. To pre vent filibustering, Chairman McCreary of the foreign affairs committee haa asked for a special order giving two days for its consideration, and providing for a vote at tbe end of that time. This will be granted by the committee on rulea. THE SILVER BILL IN THE HOUSE. In whateverebape tbeailver bill might paes tbe senate, everything else wonld be laid aside in tbe house to act upon it. Sentiment in the house is very etrong that a eompromiae will he the result, but if the compromise should carry with it a proviaion for a bond iaaus, it wonld on counter moat bitter and formidable op position. In fact, the Democratic lead era do not hesitate to give it aa their antoicu fcluaA A lornnnuii lion fa* a W»nd - issue would never be passed in the lower branch of congress. MINOR MATTERS IN TUB HOUSE, During the morning hour of the week variom minor matters may come up and be disposed of, notably the old McGarra han claim. Work on the tariff bill by tbe Demo cratic members of tbe ways and means committee continues on the lines of making the raising of revenue the object of the bill, and protection an in cident. Several committees of the house will be buey during the week. The commit tee on merchant marine and fisheries expeott that the hearing upon the Fith ian free shipping bill will be concluded Morraay or early in tbe week. The committee on territories will try to get a quorum together to consider the sev eral bills for the admission of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Tbere has been more pressure for tbe Utah bill than tbe others, and it will be disposed of first. MB. DOLITTLB'S RESOLUTION. Representative Dolittle of Washing ton state has introduced a joint resolu tion providing for a commission, con sisting of three senators and six repie eentstives, to go over the entire route of the Nicaragua canal and make a thor ough examination, with a view of sub mitting to congress a comprehensive re port on existing conditions and furnish ing Information upon which future leg islation may be bad. The resolution was referred to the committee on inter state and foreign commerce. A DISAPPOINTMENT. There iB a great deal of disappoint ment because Justice Hornblewer will not be ready to take the oath of office Monday when the supreme cauit meets. It is understood tho absence of several members of the senate judiciary com mittee prevonted action on the nomina tion of Hornblower. ONE-CUNT POBTAGB IMPOSSIBLE. Postmaster General Biesell ie expected to devote considerable attention in bis annual report to the projected one-cent postal service. He believes the inaugu ration of the service is impossible at the present time, owing to the deficit of $3,000,000 in the postal funds in the treasury. HOUNDED TO THE G RAVE.

The police hastened to fhe spot, bnt the train severed his head from bis body before they could reach him.

In all tbe letters which he had written Kershaw speaks of a crime charged against bim which was prosecuted by a woman he designated as Libbie Bloom, and a num ber of secret societies, and he claims ha waa hounded to tbe grave. He speaks of an unfair trial, and evidently believed his enemies intended to murder him. He hinted at lynching, but stated he did not fear it, not fearing death. Letters were also found on him signed by Libbie Bloom, and tbey, taken in connection with those written by himself, indicate that he was infatuated with the Bloom woman, and left his wife and children in older to live with her. Some of the letters read like the products of a de ranged mind. New Orleans, Oct, 8.-— Henry Ker shaw, who committed suicide in Chicago today, is not well known here and has not been in journalism for some time. He issued the Commercial Bulletin about a year ago, and at one time was a partner in a latge printing office.
