The most Interesting part of tho senate prucccding was tho swearing in of six teen new senators, which with those tak ing their seats last spring makes the sen ate nearly one-fourth new blood. And it Is seldom that either bmneli of congress ha so many conspicuous public figures brought Into It at one time. Thomas II. Carter, chairman of the Ilepubltcan na tional committee, made his llrst bow as a senator, succeeding I'ower, of Montana. John M. Thurston, of Nebraska, presid ing i.flicer of the national convention that llnt nominated lieneral Harrison, and at torney for tho lioltlc railways. Is another of the new men. Horace Chilton, former governor of Texas, takes theplnocof Coko. Stephen 11. Klkins. always picturesque and breezy, comes from West Yirgluta In place of Camden. Hut there Is one new man who promises to lie a center of nttraetion-Ilenjninln R. Tillman, the one-eyed terror of South Carolina. He has been tho 1'opuligt go. , crnor of South Carolina, the one who went through the state dispeimry conflict. Uo h.is Invn a fighter ever since he was knee high. Ho has klll.il his man, perhaps two numbers arc of little important In his Hvtion. ta lu-re the duello rules. - His or.v toiytsof tho cyclonic typo. He dues not line lino words, but he Is said to bo a mas ter of tho backwoods, sledge-hammer style Tho decorum of the senate wdl ho something new to him. There is keen an tidilution of Tillman's first rough and tuiiitdo with "senatorial courtesy." At I p. m the Hepubllcnn senators met In ramus, tho purpose being to decide about organisation of Ilia senate. If they decide upon an vfTort to reorganise, as is How generally conceded, the lh.iuocrats will fidlow with a conference tomorrow or Wednesday, nt which they probably will decide cpon a course of action. It tiow npis'iirs prulsdilo that all three par tie will pl:M-e candidate for president pro Ivin. In the li.-lil and In that event tho week will uo enlivened somewhat by triangular content for this nnd the other otnecs of tlw scnaUs. c or a coll was issued (or UQcUas of siivux avaatot to be hUi la theMaroicrooniAt 11 o'clock this morn-! !ko. for V10 Purto of discussing the fcas- ...... l7 u, organizing tno senate on a silver botls. It was signed by four Populisu and was tent to all tlws Republican and other senator who have prorcsscd alicgt an co to tho silver cause. " A numlwr of Republican senators. In eluding Hansbrough. Pettlgrew, Clarlt. Carter, Mantle, Dubois, S?houp. Chand ler. Oallinger and Proctor, held an In formal meeting and decided to advocate an attempt at reorganization of the senats In the caucus to bo held today. They nlo discussed tho assignments of senators. It was made evident that the western men would stand together to secure the control of tho committees which deal especially with western questions. The scheme for the enlargement of the finance committee also secured the favorable indorsement of the meeting, and the opinion was expressed that Cameron and Piatt should be so lected to fill the two places which will be at the command of the Republican in ease they organize the senate and the com mittee Is enlarged. The porty rote In the senate Is: Repub lican. 43; Democrats. 33; Populists. 8. It remains to bo a?en what. If onv. com binations will be formed. It is by no means . certnin. however, that Jones and Stewart, who are counted as Populist, will refrain from voting with their friends on questions of organi sation. WU.tT WAS DUNK IX THE CAfCCSES. tlnm Intimate That Congress Will Not 1 Much Work. Tho house caucus of the Republicans wn in session until past 1 o'clock-yesterday morning, but in the tlmeclnpscd slnca convening it had selected the officer of the bouse and heard a quantity of oratory Galusha A. Grow, who Is a historical character In the house, nominated Reed and there wasn't any one elso spoken of. His election was by acclamation. There are a good many pcoplj outside of the house who will b :-sorrv that General Hen derson, of Illinois, did' not win the clerk ship. But he never had a show. The test was mnde on the vote for chair man of thg caucus, a position that is per manent during the session of congress Grosvenor of Ohio and Henderson ol Iowa were tlie nominees Grosvenor represent ed the combination on house officers and ho was elected 15$ to 74. The vote on clerk was; McDowell, K'4; Henderson, of Illinois, 74 That was about the vote all through for the combination and the opposition. After Kccd had liecn nominated he was 'tit for and made n brief speec'i, in which he said, after the usual expression of "thnuks for the honor," etc.: "His tory will accord us praise for what we did In the Fifty-first congress and it may ac cord us its praise in this for what we do not do. We hnve unfortunaTcly a divided Kovurnment, which usually lends to small results: "Uut there are times when rest is as health-giving as exercise. Wo must not fonrvt cur flr; and greatest dutt is to Uu iUl we can to naturu con fidiiuce to business, and that we must avoid all bust nos legudutloii except in the direction of Improving business . Rather than run risks we can afford to w;vlt until well matured pluus give its assurance of per manent lK't:eflt. Crude and hastv legisla tton is alwvo nil things to be shunned. "Could we cause our immense popular majority to overflow I lit oilier branches of the government, nnd could we have full control we would create, not a perfect world, jierliaps, but a world rather more lit fo live in than we h.-ivo lately hud. t Applanse, That we shall b.? ready at all times to furnish ndequate revenue for the government according toour sense of pub lic duty no man can doubt. This Is the great nation of this hemisphere, and while we have no desire to Interfere with other nations we shall maintain our position here with firmness and self-respect, and at the same time with careful consideration of facts nnd that conservatism of action which shall leave no bad qiii-stion to trouble our future-. In this I trust the whole government In nil its brunches will he in nirord with each other and with the n-op!o." When Heed had finished his sioooh of acceptance Foss of Illinois nnd Hilborn of California c.ich pr.-isent.nl him with a gavel. These he accepted with appropriate re marks, in the course ;f which he alluded to tho fact that !u hid spent some years on the Pacific coast as a young man. In closing his rcmuk Rv.1 said: "To all the an Hence I must n.ld that I cannot tin ilert.ikc to reconcile the diff.T.'r.e of these gentlemen as to their metallic views." The Miint in Rivd's Inst remark was the fact that Foss made an allusion M "sound money" while Hilborn talked for free silver. The gavel pr.-s -ntcd by Foss was made of wood from the home of Henry Clay in Kentucky. The gavel from California was from a piece of the old war ship Hertford. In the Democratic house caucus there was no opposition to Crisp for ;caker and he was nominated with applause. Rich ardson of Tennessee was the siKikesm.m in this caucus and outlined Democratic policy as follows: "Wo should lay aside all new-fangled doctrines, and continue the Kittto for a reduction of taxation on the people, give them cheaper clothing nnd supplies; broaden nnd make better markets for tiic products of our farms and manufactories; mince the public ex penses; tor tiome rule nnd local self gov ernment; fornn ample circulating mcdi inn for our trade nnd commerce; for sound money, the gold and silver of the constitution" Combine la sewing Machine.
