Sri II l ,. i H rhe Kettle flaring Been Kicked Over, by the Administration, a. Alleged Ob struction Obtain New Allies and the End Now In the Dim Vista of the Future Republicans Try to Get I'p a Talatable Dish Some Lightning Changes of the Situation. Washington, Oct. 24. Mauy and start ling as have been the changes that have taken place in the situation with refer ence to the repeal bill since that measure was introduced in tbe senate there has never before been a day which has wit aessed so many as has the one which closed with Faulkner's motion for a recess at 5 ' clock yesterday afternoon. The day itand with the announcement that the jompromise was "off." Many were in :lined to doubt the announcement that the idministration had set the seal of its dis tprroval upon the Democratic compro mise, but very little inquiry was- neces tary to satisfy them of the correctness of this statement. Then came the talk on the part of some senators of adjournment is the best remedy for the situation, and that was soon met with tbe Assertion that cloture would t tbe j roper thing on tbe programme. The Air Full of Announcements. Speedily were . there announcements 'ollowed with the rumor that the silver men were willing to surrender uncondi tionally ' and allow the repeal bill to be passed without further opposition. Last ly came the definite announcements. made almost simultaneously, that there would be no effort today at cloture and '.hat the silver men had reorganized their 'orces and were prepared to continue tbe 5ght indefinitely. The most interesting development of the day was on the silver side, Whether given out in earnest or for purpose, some of the silver senators an nounced when they heard that the com promise hill would uot be presented that '.hey would make no more factious oppo sition, but would give wav as soon as their prepared speeches were concluded ind let the repeal bill pass. I'resto! the Situation Change. But Senator Dubois was instrumental iu bringing about tbe startling change, which became apparent about 4 o'clock. He crossed over to the Democratic side of the chamber and began to investigate. He met with much encouragement. The situation was changed in ten minutes Senator Pugh's services wern soon enlisted and he went to work with a will. Tne result was, be says, the finding of several silver Democrats who had heretofore refused to filibuster at all, who were willing to do all in their power and to use whatever means might appear most effectiveto prevent the reachiriff'ot a vote upon repeal. He said there were ten or twelve Democrats who would stand out to the tad !o prevent this result and who would report to filibuster ing pure I'.ud simple to accomplish it if necessary. Over Head and I.ars in tht Sinii. Meautiuie tne i.pul:-ls, l U. r. Alien and Kyle, had githcred about I'cffer's desk. Au hour before IVfT.T had authorised the statement that the Popu lists were willing to throw uptlu-ir hand-. When they came out of tliiscnii.'ercuce.into which Dubois was invited before its close, they were all prepared to coutiuuethe war to the bitter end. When seen nt 4 o'clock. Senator Faulkner said: "Half an hour ago I told you a vote would tie taken in a week, now it looks further off tbau ever." Senator Hawley was encountered hurry ing to catch a train at 5 o'clock. He was oa the eve of starting to the World's fair. "It looks to me,?' he said, "as if we were about where we were on Aug. 7 last. I had hoped to see tbe bill through, but I feel that I must see the fair, and it now looks as if I might visit it and get back in time for the finish." by the adrrlnlstratlon are also criticising the course which has been pursued in the compromise matter by tbe administration. This is especially true of the repeal mem bers of the steering committee. There is no doubt that they were led to believe before tbe agreement was signed that the compromise would be approved by the administration and that tbe presi dent was at least willing that tbe bill, as it was to be amended, should be passed. rhey say that it was altogether favorable to the administration view. They do not take kindly to the fact that they should lave been allowed to go so far in the mat- ler and then be told that they have acted s-ilhout warrant. Gray, a strong repeal nan, who has taken an especially active jart in securing the agreement, is among :hose who are displeased with the change, ind he is quoted as criticising the admin- stration sharply upon what is cbaracter- xed as its vacillating policy. The senators opposed to unconditional repeal who have been endeavoring forsev- tral days to bring about a compromise have not been deterred by the recent dec laration that no compromise would be ac teptable to the administration. These lenators are still laboring to secure a ma jority of Democratic senators to favor compromise. One of them said that they have secured thirty-six names, including Daniel of Virginia. The Republican senators will make an effort to agree upon some measure upon which both the repeal and silver Republic ans can stand, and if they succeed which hardly seems probable will try to get Democratic assistance sufficient to put the bill through the senate. It now develops that there are eight Democrats who have not signed the agreement to support the compromise. They are Hill, Mills, Mitch ell of Wisconsin, Mcrherson, Vilas, Voor hees, Caffery and Irby. Doings in Senate and Rouse. Washington", Oct. 24. Stewart notified the senate that he would offer an amend ment to the repeal bill providing for a compromise between the United States and South and Central American repub lics to adopt a common silver coin, legal tender in all these countries. Jones gave another section of his silver aerial and then yielded to Teller, who after giving another section of his speech yield ed to Stewart, who yielded later to a re cess until 10 a. ni. today. The house agreed to the senate amend ments to the Mormon church bill, passed the printing bill and a bill to build a revenue cutter for the lakes to take the place of the Andrew Johnson, and then put in the remainder of tbe day on the bankruptcy bil, to which there is much oppoi-ition. No action. Notable Tenure of Office Case. Washington, Oct. 24. Alexander R. Xininger and Lewis E. Parsons, Jr., the marshal and district attorney respectively for the midille and northern districts of Alabama, w ho were removed by the presi dent and contested his right so to do on tbe ground that their four years' term of office had not expired, have taken the mat ter before the United States supreme court. The Alaliama court ordered them to give up their offices to their successors, which they refused to lio. Counsel now asks the national supreme court .for leave to file a petition of mandamus directing the superior court to vacate its order re quiring them to turn over their offices. aitin of the Viking at Washington.

HANDLING CLOTURE WITH GLOVES, But &oiue Senators Eager to Tight the Matter Out. Cloture is n question which senaioisdis cuss iu a whisper since the hot words of last week. There c.-in be little doubt that Voorbees had iu mind early in tbe day, when he said be would ask for an adjourn ment instead of a recess last night, the bringing up of the cloture resolution to day. When he afterward allowed Faulk ner to move a recess iustead of an ad ' journm''nt be cut off all possibility of taking that question up today. What ' may lie tbe design later in the week is not known, lie may be awaiting the return , of Senator Hill, who is the real author of the cloture resolution, and he may be of I the opinion that the senate is not in tem per for the discussion of that question, de bate upon wuicu generally excites more feeling than upon .icy other topic. There are, however, some senators who think it should be given preference over nil rttlmi tnnirtj tliTiir and f I'hii,. j son and other repeal senators had a long conference with the president. When ne returnea to tne senate chamber Pal mer said he thought cloture would be un dertaken soon. "It has come," he said, "to be a question whether' the minority shall rule; it is more important even than the financial question. We shall have to have that fight out." It is believed that Palmer expressed the sentiments of tbe executive. The senators with whom he talked got that impression. "If this is true," said one of the repealers who has been anxious for compromise, "we shall have to reform the lines. Minority rule wasjuot mentioned in the proclamation calling for the extra session!' There is no mistaking the fact that many of the silver Democratic senators feel greatly relieved that the compromise amendment is not to be offered. They say that they surrendered all tbeirconvictions in order to promote harmony and secure a settlement of the question, contrary to their best judgment, and they are more than willing to have tbe administration take the responsibility of not accepting the settlement. Soma of the repeal sena tors who baie here I of ore stood staunchly Mewart liaises a Laugh. Washington, Oct. 24. While Stewart was continuing bis serial in the senate Dolph asked a question and Stewart said be was glad the senator asked it, as it wa9 a point be wished to "elaborate oa."
