Will Let Matters Tke Their Course The Vote Likely by Nrit Week and Ad journment to Follow. WASHlXGTOS,Oct.'J5. There was an easy going and conservative air about the sen ate which has not been observed in that body since the repeal bill was taken np for discussion in August last. The, an nouncement of an agreement that a vote should be taken had no more than been made and come to bo generally under stood thau the senate resumed its wonted manner of going on with business with out regard to the presence of a quorum and with due concern for the bodily wel fare of members, shown by closing labors at 4 o'clock. And this was the result of another of tWse lightniug changes for which the senate has recently become noted. Some of the silver senators did not, early in the morning, appear so confi dent of being able to keep up their fight as they were when the senate took a re cesss at 5 o'clock Monday night, and the Republican silver senators said their coarse in this matter would depend entire ly upon the Democratic silver senators. They have said from the beginning that whenever the Democrats should refuse to aid them in obstructive measures they would allow the voting to begin. Harris Annouuces the Surrender. So when Harris arose in the chamber and announced that ti e silver Demo' ruts had concluded that there was no profit in further obstruction the silver Republicans were ready to quit. Dubois, who took a leading p-irt -Monday in arranging for tlio continuation of the fight against uncondi tional repeal, said that a vote would come probably within a week, as there would lie no opposition or attempt at filibustering. 'The speeches which have been begun will le finished," said Dubois, ''and such other speeches as senators may desire to deliver. It is understood that Mr. Teller he- some thing yet to say, aud Senators Stewart and Jones des.re to conclude their talks. Sen ator Allen also desires to nia-e some fur ther remarks. Yesterday leaders on the Democratic side said they would stand by us if we would continue the fight. The Sudden Change in Harris. "Senator Harris and ot hers declared that it was their determination to preveut a vote from being taken, even if methods not yet invoked should lie used. With this understanding we declared our inten tion of keeping np The fight. This morn ing Senator Harris gave the same assur ance, but an hour later he came to mo and said that he felt it his duty after the assiiraaces he had given that he should in form me tlu.t he could not cititinue the fight as nupsented, but would yu Id to the pressure ol ;i uc:ntes (:: tie Deui' crat ic si.ie. 11" s.:il he -j. u:e f- r t lie .-i I v r r.n n H t hat siii.-.

'Krali.eil 1 ii:it tlie Klol Wits t'tilnili. The auiH'UUCvtueut of Harris j u. i new face on liiatlers and members threw off the stiaiu uudei which lliey had been work ing for f.o long. Wheu Faulkner moved a recess two hours in advance of the usual har most of the members remained in the chamber chatting among themselves and with those who chanced to stroll in as if they had just re torted from a long journey and bad not yet had an opportuuity to talk it all over, or as if they had become accustomed to the long hours, and had become so at tached to the chamber that they felt loth to leave it earlier than usual. When at last they got out and found the sun still shining an unusual experience with them of late most of ihein drew a long breath of relief. They realized apparently for the first time that the end was raelly near and began to make plans for the future. How It All Came About. The new situation was the result of a conference of silver Democrats held before the senate began the day's work. It was held to decide w het her filibustering diouM be resorted to, and was not large i;or long continued. They simply canvassed the sit uation, aud concluded that it was no- wise policy to attempt to make good the prom ise they had made Monday to the silver Republicans of making further opposition to the bill by the useof obstructive tactics. They made that pledge while laboring un der a fit of resentment over the defeat of the compromise nieasmre. After weigh ing the subject fully they coucluded that while their constituents would justify them iu making as strong a fight for silver as they could make in a legitimate scd ?gular way their people would not endorse them in resorting to filibustering methods. Long Time Finding Out One Fact. They also recognized the fact that with a majority in the senate against theui they would be compelled to yield sooner or later, and that if tbey should succeed in getting any concession whatever it would be of very small consequence. Further more, they contended that if the settle ment of the question should be longer de layed the business depresssion would be laid at the doors of silver. Taking all these matters into consideration, as they also did the physical condition of members of the senate on both sides who have been through a long siege, they concluded to repress their resentment and yield at once. Harris was chosen to carry the message to the Republicans. Immediate ly afterwards a halt was called upon an incipient filibuster aud the long fight was practically at an end. TRIED TO MIX WATER AND OIL. A Futile Attempt to Make Slieiman and Teller "Flop Togctlier." The silver Republicans ami repeal Re publicans made an ineffectual attempt to unite forces before the close by bring Sen ators Sherman and Teller together, but they soon found that they could not unite upon a measure that would stand any likelihood of receiving the necessary ma jority to insure its passage. The repeal Republicans expressed themselves as willing to support a bill providing for the purchase and coinaGe of two million ouuees of silver per month until Jan. i, 1SQ6, and also providing for the issuance of $300,000,000 worth of bonds. The silver Republicans did not; consider that this proposition offered tiuch more in the in terest of silver than the Democratic com promise measure. Upon being asked whether he did not think it would have been better in the in terest of silver for the silver Republicans to accept the Democratic compromise bill than to refnse that and take instead un conditional repeal. Teller said: "Possi bly it would have been, aud 'probably that would have been done if it had been in the power of the silver Republicans to control the matter. Such was not the case, how ever. That was a distinctly Democratic measure and the agreement for its sup port was signed by the Democrats who did sigu it with the understanding that if all the Democratic senators did not at tach their names it was not to be binding on any of them. Hence when eight of the Democratic senators refused to give their assent to the compromise the agreement was no longer binding upon those ho had signed. "Furthermore, there would have been no chance of Retting the bill through even if the silver Republicans and the Populists had accepted it after the exec utive had signified its disapproval of the bill. It was not only impossible then to get the additional eight Democratic sig natures, but those already obtained could not be held. If, therefore, all the silver Republicans hud allowed themselves to be controlled by the agreement the compro mise bill would have iK-en no stronger than, for instance, the free coinage amendment not as strong even. 1c would ha e had only the support of the silver I)enioc-a:.a and the silver Republi cans. It would probably not have gotten any of the Populist support. As a matter of fact, however, it would have been im possible to hold the silver Democrats." Telier has uot been hopeful uf the silver cause fur a u: mth, and he has regarded the end ns near since the time, a week agi, when the saver men made their effort to secure h'.i m j lurnment inplaceof a recess, and toeiid tuey could muster only ten or twelve votes. He took that poor demon stration on tiie part of the silver force as evidence that the silver Democrats did not consider it advisable to continue the fight for a great v hilo. Voorhees says that he is hopeful of reaching the voting stage by Thursday, and the opinion is general that the bill will te well discussed before the end of the week. It is not believed by any one that half of the twenty-seven amend ment proposed will be regularly offered. The Populists said they were ready to goon, but would follow the lead of the Republican silver men. The fight had shown that neither old party was friendly to silver and made millions of votes for the Populists. As soon as the fight was at an end the talk drifted to adjournment. The general opinion is iu favor of adjourn ing as soon as the repeal b:l! is passed. Democrats ia the house will pas the sen ate repeal bill and Republicans there will vote for whatever suits the Republican senators. There is very little- d.tTirence between the Wilsoa ' and Vooriites bill, nv.yi.ow. A :journu!t-!it is j.i-pul.-.r ic Imtli ii'.. . ; ; r: i v i.l doub:l r ca'.'ry as suoa t:.e r- p i bi is pas-eU.

Sherman told an Associated Press reporter that he was contemplating the introduction of a bond bill and that it would probably in cidentally make some provision for the use of silver. Many other senators have finan cial bills in contemplation. The outlook is indeed good that the regular session will be flooded with financial bills. NEW STANDARD OF VALUE. "debtor class1' was due to demonetization of silver. He grew heated. "Now that you 'have demonetized silver," be said, "you propose to inaugurate the cru cial performance of the auctioneer ham mer to complete the work that has been going on." "You," he shouted, looking around at his colleagues, "you call your selves Democrats and yet you are voting for a rescript of a Republican measure.ex cept that the Sherman bill was infinitely better than this."

During his speech in the senate Jones oj Nevada stated that he desired a dollar that kept at a pjrity with a pound of cotton or a bushel of wheat, and not with a metal that was con stantly increasing in value. A dollar which increased in value made the rich richer and the poor poorer, whereas, if the dollar decreased in value there would be a day of jubilee to the overburdened debtor. McPherson thought that if gold had ap prec ated interest would have gone up and labor have gone down, whereas, ia the past ten or fifteen years United Stales bond interest had gone down from 5 to U per cent. While labor had gone up ia irregular increasing ratios. J nes replied that he had shoTa to the satisfaction of every man who listened to him that one of the highest proofs of an increase iu tue value of money of any kind especially in a new aud unfinished coun trywas a decline in the rates of interest. If money were increasing in purchasing power, in its com maud over laud and over the production of labor, everywhere, and if prices were falling, who wanted to enter into any business? Synopsis of Congressional Proceeding. WASlHSUTOV, Ot. 25. The senate did a little routine business, but the silver question was the one that occupied most of the day. The important outcome of it all was the authoritative announcement that the silver men on both t-ides of the chamber would at once cease ob struction and permit a vote as soon as the pending speeches are concluded. This was announced by Harris and Dubois. Jones and Stewart continued their speeches and another recess was taken. The house passed a bill requiring engi neers and assistant engineers on merchant vessels to be citizens of the United States. Debate on the bankruptcy bill was re sumed aud ran laigely to discussion of the silver questions. With the debate still peuding the house adjourned. I:.-,i-n et Waroi in Debate WAsmsiii-j.N, Oct. 5.
