Immediately After tho adjournment of tho llottie
yesterday n cniicuj of Republican members vu
hold In tho hull of tho ltnuio of Representatives.
As all tho absentees hud been summoned to tho
city to mako ft quorum thcro was an exceptionally
largo attendance. Previous to tho caucus a num
ber of Republicans wcro dlipood to doubt tho ex
pediency of tho policy which tho party had
adopted, and several of them Intimated that they
wero not In fav or orconllnulng tho existing s'atus;'
In short, that tho tlmo had como vr hen somo sort
ef compromise might priperly bo mado. Alter tho
tocmbora of tho Elections Committeo had been
heard, however, In explanation and vindication
nf tholr action, this feellmr of doubt seemed to dis
appear, and as tho debate progressed, somo of
thoso who, at tho outset, una sconicu uispuseu vu
bo tconscrvatlvc, took ground with tho most radi
cal in
vrtoiNo a strict jiBiirnKSCE
lo tho prcsout policy. After tho Hall of tho Homo
had been cleand n resolution was adopted limit
ing debate lo three minutes for each speaker,
unloss h member i f tho Etoetlons Commute!.
Itoprosontatlvo llubbclt, chairman of tho Re
publican Congrcslonal Campaign Committee,
opened tho iHbato wttli a tin nilnutia' spooch III
which he dlsju-sod tho party action with refer
ence to Its ptnerul bearing upon tho political sit
uation. Without going Into an analysis of tho dis
puted facts Involved In the election conttst of
Mackoyv. O'Connor, ho coumcllcd conservative
action and caution In taking a course which tho
party and tho tountry at large might not approve.
jio thought tho situation a very dcllcato ouo and
suggested that tho Republicans before resolving to
continue Iho contest abnU bo perfectly tro In tholr
position and bo sure of
SATMPYINa.IME COUNTRY,
that their reasons woro substantial and their no
tion thoroughly JuUflublc. II. o conservative
character ol Mr. Hubboll'a remarks called forth n
reply from Repre-ontullvo Culkln, chairman of
tho IIouso Committeo on Kloclhnis (mid tho Ho
publican leader In tho present contest). Mr, Cal
kins rondo an earnest argument In support oflho
stand taken bythoBipubllcaiit. Ho reviewed tho
caseoftlackey vs. O'Connor nt klip li, ami en
deavored to impress his colleagues with his belief
that to surrender tho contest uould bo runlous to
tho party. In tho courso or hi remarks Mr. Cal
kins was Interrupted by scare nf members, somo
or whom asked questions Indlialltig that tiny
knew very little about tho details or tho election
case.
HP. MADE DETAILED RErUFH
to tho Interrogatories, and endeavored to con
vince each of hli interlocutors that tho report of
tho majority of tho commlttoe was thoroughly
justified by tho facts In tho cue, and that It was
tho duty of tho Republicans to viand firmly by
their previous record. Hcprcscnlatlva Miller, of
Pennsylvania, tho member of tho Committeo on
Elections who wroto tho majority report, follow cd
Mr. calKins. Jio exniniueu very iiiiumeiy uiu
details of tho case and tho manner of Its consid

minutes and was listened to very Attentively.

tions that the committee had duly considered tho
Charges of forgery and mutilation or tho docu
mentary evidence
Representative Haskell, of Kansas, the next
speaker, was the only member, with thu exception
of Mr. Hubbcll, who expressed conservative
views. He thought It posslblo that a continuation
of the struggle might provo Injurious to thu party,
and followed tho example or Mr. Hubbcll by
urging discretion.
Representative RobrsonKspoko sovcral times In
tbo courso or Iho debnta and strongly recommend
ed persistence In tho policy heretofore pursued.
Representative Heed, chairman of tho Judiciary
Committee, wo tlio next spoakcr. Ho said It was
perfectly ovldcnt from tho full nnd atnplo expla
nations mado by Mr. Miller and Mr. Itanncy ihnt
all tho material allegations or fraud had been
fairly tried before tho Klectlons Committeo with
patlenco and decided after abundant hearing;
that Mr. Dibble himself, after demurring to Iho
Jurisdiction of Iho committee and claiming that
lie could not bo mado
A PARTY TO THE COKTrST,
bad consented to tho form and substance of tho
affidavits, and that tho committeo had based
their report upon majorities admitted by thcDem
ocratte election inauaecrs themselves. Ho pro
ceeded to arguo that the only appeal from the
decision of the comralttoo was to tho House ; that
tho IIouso could not properly dccldo upon any
course or action wicnoui mil discussion; tunc eo
act on Iho nveveratloi s of n disappointed and
guilty lilUant without discussion wou'd be nu
Irpult to h commluco whoso fairness cvon Mr.
Blackburn aud Mr. Carlisle had to-day been
forced to admit in tho House of Representatives.
There was only one courso to pursue, ho said, and
that was to discuss this mnltcr before tho world,
nd provo to over) body tho
baselesshess op this last resort
of procrastinating unlit. "Let us, ho continued,
xoaltu this fair and open proposition to discuss,
and In the face or the country to vote on tho quia
Hon of recommittal. If the minority refuse such
a proposition aud persist In their attempt to sub
vert tho Constitution by tr) lug to vest Ingovcruors
of States tho power lodged In the House or dei id
Jug who are its members, we must Invoke tho

tactions and partisan obstructions."

by a number of Representatives, Including Messrs.
l'aco.of California, and J. Iljatt Smith, of New
