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.

I'resident Hyde, of Howdoiu College,
tells a uood storv ol the lirst ninrriage
ceremony at winch he officiated while oc
cupying" u pulpit in Jersey City. It
seems turn tne nigger nap oi tin- iiiu-r-rsting
couple wus rather timid mill nerv
ous, one ul these men whose diffidence is
in danger of leading tlicm into sonic iiwk
wnrd blunder. The bride, on the contra
rv, wns remarkably cool and cll-osscss-
ed. As the couple presented themselves
before I'resident Hyde there scented to In?
some misunderstanding in regard to the
side on which the lady should stand.
The groom hitched nhoul nervously, but
the bride wns eiual to the occasion.
Quickly changing place with her bashful
Hiiance, she remarked confidently:
"Then-, I am sure this is the side on
whice I have always lieen ncciistonu-d to
stand." This solved the difficulty, mid
the timid groom and the young wiflow,
who knew all about il iVoin cxH.-iiciice,
were speedly united.

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.

Miss Tracy's casket by her young friends
Misses I'roclor, Miller, Wannnmaker mid
Kusk and Misses Windom.
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. Catlcn.'Mr. Kola-rt Graves
and daughter, and other relatives. A

they were seated the choir of St. John's

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
