THK NKW HOI'HF. Rl LKa, The Keputollcana Held a Caucus) Yestterday to Conalder Then. w ashinoton, r-eiiruurv o. I lie nur- pose of the republican house caucus this aiu-rnoon was to consider the r.ew code of rules which was completed by the committee on rules this morning. The en ueus wus called together immediately niter me iidiournment, uy Mr. Hender son, of Illinois, us chairman. The reason for the call was stated, and each member present was furnished III conhdtnte with a copy ol the new code. Mr. McKinley then took the floor and proceeded to explain in detail the scope and purpose of each of the ulcs. The rending consumed u grcnt deal nl time. The code was read in full and as each rule was read its provisions were explained by Mr. McKinlev or Mr.Cunuon. There were Ircuuent iniiuiries for more dvtailrd information a to the effect ol changes unn lot tne reasons thcretor and the work nl the caucus progressed slowly Generally the report of the committee wns adopted without muterial amend ment, but there was at least one impor tant nddition. Mr. Adams, of I'ennsvlvauia, offered an amendment plncmg the pension Icuistn lion in the privileged class und making the reports from the committeeon invalid Iiensions in order at any time. There was a lively opposition to this amend ment, and some members of the commit tee on rules sought to prevent its adop tion, but the amendment wns finally in corporated by a vote of 70 to 24-. The full code as it emerges from the caucus diners Irom the old rules in the following material points: l iner rule o, cards nre not to be taken into members after 2 o'clock, ex cept by their directions. Door rule 11. The committee on in valid ite-nsions is given the right to re port at any time, as ulrendy stated under rule 13. Three calendars nre providetl for. 1st, on committee of the whole to which shall be referred public bills; 2nd, house calendar for all bill of public character, not raising the revenue nor directly or indirectly appropriating money or properly ; 3rd, calendar of the committee of the whole house lor bills of private churuetcr. I -inier rule la, a new clause is added as lollows: On demand nl any member, the names of the nietulicrs present, but not voting on any cull by the speaker ol yeas anil uavs snail lie noted uy the clerk, under the supervision of the speaker, nnd shall ix- recorded in the mut ual und record immciliatclv, to the names of those voting in the aflirmative und negative, under the head of "present and not voting," nnd shall be lollowed by the names of the absent members, which shnll Ik- entered under the head of "ab sentees." This is in line with Speaker Uceds rule. I'nder rule 10, clause 4 reads: "When n (ineslion is under debate no motion will lie received but to adjourn, to lay on the table for previous uucstion, (which mo tions shall be divided without debate I, to Histponc to a day certain, to reler or to amend, or postponeiiidchmtclv. which several molioiis shnll have precedence in lite loregomg order, and no motion to postpone to n day certain, to rend or postpone indefinitely being decided si: -ill be again allowed oii the same day at the' same stage of the procceeding," Tins section is aimed at the ttlllitister- ing. and change the old section by strik ing out of the millions which mny lie ri ce hid those to fix a day to which the house shall adjourn nnd to take n recess. So, too, in section o ol the same rule the provision that motions to adjourn to a fixed tlav. to adjourn nnd to take a re cess shall always he in order is stricken out, but section Id nf the same rule car ries the principle still further, for the new section reads: "No dilntorvmotionsslinll be eutcrtaliied by the stK-aktr.1' Th( caucus remained in session until 7 o'clock, nnd the most inviolable sccrcry in regard to the proceeding was pre served und every effort wns made to pre vent tne action oi tne eiiucus la-coming public. W hile it was stated that on every (piestion presented, the caucus is harmonious tne lengin oi tne session und the known opKisitiou of several prominent republican to any radical change in the rules render the accuracy ol this statement douiiinil in met il tins been dithered that far from Ix-ing har monious, thrcniictisat times wasslrongly worked up by the expression of totally divergent opinion, and that this propo sition Ik a liioie pronnoiv uiiriacviiicucen by the great care which was taken to prevent the facts Mug known.

Secretary Tracy I) Ahle lo Attend The Funeral la Held Prom the (executive Manalon A Deacrlp tlon of the Kltea. Washington, Fcbrunry 5. The beattti ul historic Hast Room of the lixectitive Mansion, the scene of so many varied stectaclcs of brilliant ceremony or social gnyety, was to-ditv devoted to the sadly contrasted and solemnly impressive pur pose of n funeral. Very seldom hrs any similar scene been witnessed nt the White House, and never, since IMIio, when the remains of the la mented Lincoln reposed amid the same suit iimdings. 1 he services over th mnniiis oi-the wife mid daughter of the secret :irv of the nnvv were appointed fur 1 1 o'clock, but long In-fore that hour the F.ast Koom was crowded with people desirous ol pnying me iitki. iriuuie to iiteir oeparieti trteilfis. It was a most distinguished untheriin.'. and included nearly everybody of promi nence in Washington. Arrangements hail I teen mnde for seating three hundred and fifty crsons, but over five hundred man- tged to gam entrance. All the doorways leading to the hast Koom were also thronged with people, nml it is estimated tnat there were nearly one thousand per sons in the house. As far n possible ad mission was confined to personal and of ficial friends of Secretary Tracy und his tamily, nnd consequently very tew strangers were present. A great crowd gathered outside, however, and watched the carriages as thev drove into the grounds. It wns found necessary to sta tion policemen at the gates to keep out the crowd. The caskets containing the deail were placed side hv side under the central chandelier nnd direetlv opposite the main corridor. They were liistinguishable only iiv tne greater size ol the one containing the body of Mrs. Tracy. A lame Bugoimiinwilhgnicclulsiircnd- ing branches was placed lietwccn them nt the foot, and the sombre drajK-ries of the caskets were also entirely concealed by beautiful designs of emblematic flow ers, while roses, Camillas, Hyacinths. lilies of the valley, etc. Garlands and wreaths were also banked against the sides of eachcaskct. These floral tributes were sent bv Secretary nnd Mrs. liluine. the Get man Minister, Senator Stanford, Senator Hale, Vict-I'ivsidcnt and Mrs. Morton, Secretary nnd Mrs. Wiudoin, Mr. las. C.

Seats were arranged on three sides nl a stpiare, the oiea space la-ing used for the nlrunce ol the mourners mid presidential tarty who were assigned seals fronting lie caskets, ice-rresidcnl and Mrs. Morton, who were among the earliest ar rivals, were also seated opposite. Near by were seated the Hritish minister and family, the German minister, the Chinese and l.'orcun lritions the Hrinllinn min ister and ninny othei member ol the diplomatic corps. Army and naval offi cers were pres.-nl ill great numlK-rs, and nearly all were in full uniform. Shortly la-fore 11 o'clock the Schttlierl ipmrtcttc? stationed just within the en trance to the Hast room from the main coriidor, sang the hymn "I cannot al ways trace the wny." The members of the cabinet, with the exception of Secretary Hluine, acting as pall liearers, soon after entered mid took seals at the right of the caskets. They were soon followed by the funeral pro cession, Secretary Tracy and his son, Frank, walking arm and arm at its head. Thev were followed by General J. S. Cat len. Mr. A. B.

As sunn ns they were seated the choir of St. John's Ivpiscopal Church, consisting of sixteen white surpliccd boys anil lour men, under the direction of Win. II. Daniel, precentor, entered the main corridor from the far end, and as they passed nlon; its length witlt slow nml measured steps sang ns the processional hymn, "Ix-ad Kindly l.ight." Kev. I r.
