Leaders and Promoters of Low Prices. And Eiprniea a Luck of Reverence fot Supreme Court Opinion He Altto Hut Shy at John Sherman Mill Prepared to Stand by the President and Follow Sherman Rather Than Peffer A Hot for a Conference. Washington, Oct. 19. The senate bat) i mt her of its "recess" sessions and again took recess instead of adjourning. The object of this is to save the time in the m ming' in which general business may b : brought up, so that the whole time ol the senate may be given to the repeal bill, thus adding at least two more hours to the time for debate. Morgan was ou his feet as soon as the senate was ready foi business and resumed the discussion ot question of senatorial silence during roll call. He imagined a case in which two senators voted aye upon a bill and one sen ator voted no, while the rest of the sena tors remained in their seats silent, and he asked whether that bill could be said to have passed the senate. Those who had sat by and had not voted might have meant to Fay by then- silent negative votes that they were unwilling to do business of that sort. Tbey micht have said: "It is true that we are here; it is true that we do not answer to our names. Hut our presence and silence indicate thHt we are not here for the purpose of doing business that you want to do. We have a right to be here to see what kind of a record you are going to make." That Suprt-nir Court Decision. Morgan then took r.; the decision of the supreme court which was referred to a-i being in favor of the right of a presiding officer to count a quorum. He said that derision roiiM not he lwiste.1 into a sup port if that doctrine, except by the artful tiess of au astute j oiit ician. A fair minded lawyer could not do it. 1 lie supreme court, Mfirgi'U said, had never claimed the power to decide ns to the constitutionality or unconstitutionality of the rules of either house. It could not do it. That was a political question in which the supreme couit never cot ceinel ltse.:. t.et to I lie I'oilit He Stnrtel For. Then he applied his argument to Hill and said: "It is only those men who have easy consciences who follow the supreme court. There are men in the world whose consciences are so very easy that thev can bend them to any purpose which their po litical necessities may require at any time. But such men have no just conception of the rights and duties of the representatives of the people and the states. Men of that class may follow the supreme court around and be willing to take au oath of allegiance to its opinions oneway today and to its opinions another way to-morrow." . Tangled 1 nie in Hi Tart. In this conned ion Morgan referred to the fact that after the decision of the su preme court jiganist legal tender govern ment notes the court had been increased from seven to nine, tlie ease had been argued again and the first decision ie versed, and implied that because of the lirst decision tue court had lu en "ncrea sons to obtain the secord. lie was cor reeled on that point by i lour, who gave the facts in the case an 1 assert ed th:U the increase of the court had been provid for by congress, and to judges (iJradicy and Strong) nominated, before th" fir legal tender decision had been made. Ketnrnx to senator Hill. Having come to grief by this diversion Morgan returned to t he New York senator, who he said. had referred to his (Morgan's) devotion to another constitu tion than that of the United states. He did not, he said, have much respect for men who were constantly referring to the war period of IM'.l, and who had not had the pluck tosuouluer a gun ana go out to fight. His respect did not extend to that class, as it did to men like I'almer, Morrison, Sickles, Kandall, who had taken muskets in their lmnds nud said "we will try this question with you, ou issue of battle." Not Athamcil of His War Rernrd. It was only those who hired substitutes nud stayed at home nud pleaded the baby net, or something of that kind, who were in the habit of getting up tu the senate and elsewhere and quoting the fact that he (Morgan) had belonged to the secession government of the south. lie had be longed to it, and was not ashamed of the fact. Old John Knox, old John Wesley aud Martin Luther men wlu had fought for freedom of conscience were the men whom he revered in history not those petty politicians who figured and rose to the surface like bubbles upon a stagnant pond and exploded and left nothing be hind them but mephitic odors. Laughter WANTS IT TAKEN METAPHORICALLY And Give the Democrat a Warning Hased on a Classic Legend. Proceeding Morgan spoke of the severe treatment of Senator George some weeks ago when he was forced to go on with his speech, although in ill bealtb at the time: and recalled the classical legend of Actteon and his dogs; bow after the dogs bad caught and devoured the game they had turned upon their master and consumed him. He warned his Democratic col leagues that that would be their fate in the coalition which tbey had entered into to pass the bill. lou are," said he, ad dressing himself to those Democrats, "turning your dogs loose here I do not mean literally, but metaphorically' laughter upon men who are represen tative men in the highest sense of the word and who want to do their duty to their constituents and to the country. "And after awhile, when your hounds have destroyed us they will turn upon you and rend you to pieces. They will have no more use for you than a boy haa for a last year's bird's nest after they have done manipulating you and carrying you along in their little political machine." Further on le spoke figuratively of Butler and himself as having nothing to do but to cross their hands aud be hand cuffed and blindfolded and turned over to the tender mercies of the senator rom Ohio, who would pack them a-.vay In his "cold storage" and keep them there until they changed their opinions or became petrified. Teller then said he would not submit to be lectured by Hill and Gray, and though he might submit with a belter grace to a lecture from Sherman, all such lectures were violative of the canons of good or der and decency, from widen preliminary he proceeded to "baste" the president for what he alleged was interferon with the legislative oranch of the government. He read numerous interviews in the papers to support his argument and represented Cleveland as saying: "This compromise is not satisfactory to me." In reply to a question by McPherson whether he knew of any int rference by the president Tel ler replied, "I do," and quoted theXortben letter, which he said McPherson would not deny did interfere. McPherson said he did deny it, and Teller replied that Mc Pherson was a brave man. Daniel referred to Sherman's remark that the Democrats would vote against the ten commandments or the Lord's prayer if proposed by Republicans. Daniel said that Sherman was quite right in saying so. If those ancient and venerable documents were proposed by the senator from Ohio the Democrats would instantly imagine that there was just such a trick about it as there had been about the Sherman act. Then he took back the word "trick" and substituted the word "scheme" for it. And cow, he added, the senator from Ohio was not only the leader of the Democratic party but also its lecturer. Laughter. Hill remarked that if the presiding offi cer of the body agreed with him the bill would pass, in spite of all the objections of the minority. Loud applause, which required the interposition of the vice president Frye quoted a ruling of Speaker James G. Blaine that the right to change its rules was inherent in the house and that it could not deprive itself of that right, and Frye added that in case the senate attempted to change its rules the duty of the presiding officer would be to refuse te recognize obstruction. Mills said that he had been in favor of compromise at one time, but now, when an anti-administration party had been started, he had burned his boats and would stand l.y the president. He had been taunted with being in company with the senator f. oiii Uinu (Sherman), but whom, he asked, did the opponents of the bill follow!- L'uiier the leadership delivering the sentence w.tii intense bitterness of the distinguish"! senator from Kansas (PcfTew Aj.plause and laughter. Thut was a question if taste and it had been written that de gustibus non disputan dum est. Let every man go he added w ht-iever it suits him. ABBREVIATED TELEGRAMS. MOVE FOR A CONFERENCE. The Majority Trying to Arrange a Talk Among Themselves. Washington, Oct. 19. Vest is circulat ing a call among the Democratic senators asking Gorman to call a caucus and pledg ing the signers to abide by its decision. At noon yesterday he had received sixteen signatures, all silver repeal men. The sil ver men sij n the call without hesitation. The repeal men appear to be holding off, aud it would at this time seem to be doubtful whether they will agree to the caucus. If they or a majority of them do not agree to it, it is doubtful whether the call will be issued. The trouble is that there is little doubt that the silver men would control a caucus. For this reason the iflort is now being made to have the proposed caucus turned into a conference, aud to accomplish this it is uot imprubaMe that one or two of those who s gned the request that Vest circulated will have their naraes stricken lrom that paper. This would leave it without a majority and relieve the chair man of the caucus from the necessity of acting. During the course of debate yes terday a number of Democrats declared their intention of not going into auy bind ing caucus, but indicated a willingness to come together for the purpose of discussion the question as Democrats merely. For this reason the caucus may be transformed into a conference although that has not beeu determined. The World's fair will positively close Oct. 30 instead of SI congress having just clipped off one day by an error in the law. i he pulpiteers of Atlanta are excitedly discussing the question whether the Pas sion play is moral or not.

LIVESTOCK AND PRODUCE MARKETS to visit present s Luzie Cia- Troreeding in Congress. Washington. Oct. 19. The senate finally closed the talk on the question raued by Dolph and laid his motion on the table, thereby practically declaring that under the senate rules a man niaj be sitting right before the presiding officer and yet be recorded as absent on roll call, because he refuses to auswer to his name. Then Teller made a like motion, because his name was not on the lecord, although he was present but refusing to answer. He criticized the president for, as alleged, in terfering iu congressional matters. Mor gan, Dauiel aud Mills spoke on various phases of the question that is now before the senate, but no progress was made. The only incident of note in the house was a personal controversy between Geary and Warner of New York, over the New York and New Jersey bridge bill.
