And the &:nd May Come cm Saturday Sil ver Men Not Counting on Their Pro posed Amendments How the Senator Are Listed Anti-Kepealer in the House Will Insist on a Quorum Rad llreak by an Admiral ut Kio. Washington, Oct. The prospect at the close of the senate .session lust evening looked favorable to the It-ginning of vot ing on the amendments to t he repeal bill by Friday. Faulkner had been canvas sing the senate during the afternoon with a view of asking the senate to fix a time when the vi could he taken, but con cluded not to riake this request, for the reason that be was of opinion after get ting the views of various senators that the speech-making would be expedited by allowing the business to drift. The result of Faulkner's inquiries was the discovery that the speeches on the main question would soon be exhausted. Senator Jones concluded yesterday and Teller, Martin, Allen and Stewart each desires to talk fro:u an hour to an hour and a half. ill KaUy on Fre Coinage. So far as learned there will be uo other speeches, and wheu the last of these shall have beeu concluded the voting will lie the pext thing iu order. Ijiter inquiry shows that none of the amend uicu is w ill receive 1 a sufficient vote to insure adoption, a:id it f is possible that none of them will receive J as high a vole as will be recorded iu oppo sition to the bill. The reason for this ' statement i fou d in the fact that the sil Ver men do not expect any of t hem to carry. and therefore consider it unnecessary to rtteinpt 10 have any of them adopted. Manv of the tree coinage men announce j their intention of voting only for the free coinage amendment and o! giving no cc uutenance to any of the otlier amend dents. N't Itond Amendment to l.e Offered. The Republicans have abandoned ail idea of introducing an amendment as a party measure. Snerman had at one tim thought it would lie wi-e policy 01 the paii of the Republicans to offer a measure for the settlement of the question, but he says now that he d mbt the expediency of interfering iu any way with tne passage of the repeal bill as it now Mauds. He thinks that authority should be given for bonds, but sees the dfhcultvof getting such a provision through at this time and will in kll probability not attempt it. The repeal Republicans say that to introduce a bond an.endment at this time wou.d certaiuly bring On debate which might prove iu terminable and result in the defeat of the bill. No Doubt of an Adjournment. , It is believed that if the voting on the Amendments can be begun early in the fcessiou Friday the fiual rote can lie reached Saturday at the latest, and th bill sent to the house Of representatives for its action. When the house shall have acted upon the bill adjournment until the regular session on the first Monday 1:1 December will be in order. There is very little doubt now that 1 hi-adjournment will be taken, although the DcmoTrat ic managers of the senate have Hot yet giv en the su'oj. c' sullu-icnt conoid-ration to feel justified iu making an olticial an nouncement. They have been 111 confer ence with Speaker Oisp, who advises ad journineut when the repeal bill shall have been disposed of. Couldn't Clold a Oiiorniii, Anjhow. So general ;.s the desire on the part of senators and members to get away that it would la. next to impossible to hold a quo rum of either house in Washington, should it be attempted. It was at. one time be lieved that there would be an effort to pass the bill lor the exteusion of the Chi nese exclusiou act, but that probability Las been averted. I'erkius. who has taken an active interest iu this matter as has also his Democratic colleague, White has asked the members of the committee on foreign relations to postpone their re port upon tnis bill until White shail be able to lie in the Semite and take part in the discussion, and he is led to believe that the request will be granted. White is detained iu California by important business. How the Senators Were Counted.

He Trescnts a I'lan Outlining His View of the Way to Legislate. Washington, Oct. 20. Coombs (Dem.) of Brooklyn created a Blight, sensation in the bouse by offering a resolution outlin ing a plan for a tariff bill aud instructing the ways and me ins committee to bring in a bill in r.ccordance with its provis ions. The bill according to the resolu tion shall have four schedules: (A) com posed of articles free of duty, including all raw materials; (13) articles to pay duty of 10 percent.; (C) articles of luxury.wiue, spirits, tobacco, upon which a duty must be charted suiucient at letist to protect manufacturers wuo pay internal revenue tax. The fourth schedule (D) is for the pro tection of labor and provides that all arti cles not covered by the list shall go into an unclassified schedule. After the amount of revenues needed shull be ascer tained aud the amount of revenue to be obtained from the first four schedules shall have beeu deducted from the amount needed the remainder shall be raised by mnnrt taxes ou unclassified articl The principle to govern in the formation of schedules "D"' and unclassified shall have, regard for the protection of labor cost, wherever a difference of labor cost exists between this country and abroad. When the reading of the resolution had been completed Payne of New York asked whether such a bill would be constitution al acoc-rding to the terms of the Chicago plat form. SUPERSEDED FOR HIS "SOONNESS." Admiral Stanton Salutes the Brazilian Rebel Mello. Washington', Oct. 20. The navy depart ment has learned by a telegram from Rear Admiral Stanton, in command of the United States naval forces at Rio de Ja neiro, that this officer had saluted the flag of Admiral Mello, commanding the Insur gent fleet. The salute w.is unauthorized by any instructions the admiral had re ceived. It was an unfriendly act toward a friendly power, and the secretary of the navy after consulting with the president and secretary of state, issued an order de taching Admiral Stanton from command cf his sqaadrou and turning it over to Captain Picking, the next oflicer in rank, This was in reply to a telegram of in quirv. Secretary Herbert expressed his surprise that an oflicer of Admiral Stanton's ex perience and standing should commit such a blunder, and his pro mi it action is taken with the purpose of aunouncing-to the world that the U lifted States government has taken no steps to refuse recognition to the legally constituted Brazilian govern ment. Naval olliciids talked with on the subject are puzzled over Admiral Stanton's action, and are at a loss to account for so serious a defection from duty on his part. MUST HAVE A REPEAL QUORUM.
