T1IK DEMOCRATS HELD A CAUCUS
YESTERDAY, AT WHICH IT IS
RUMORED THAT SENATOR TEL?
LER WAS PRESENT?-THE SEN?
ATE MAY BE REORGANIZED OX
SILVER LINES, THOUGH Til IS IS
NOT BY ANY MEANS CERTAIN.
Washington, March 0.? For a little
more than two hours this afternoon the
Democrats of the Senate endeavored to
reach some conclusion upon the ipiestion
of organisation of tue Semite. Like the
Republican conference of Saturday it was
fruitless in result-.. Two factions are tir
rayed against each other. On the one
hand the Republicans present a solid
phalanx of forty-two votes that will stand
by each other through thick and thin.
< )u the Other hand there are the divided
ranks of gold standard Democrats, silver
Democrat s, bolting Republicans and Pop?
ulists. The problem liefoie those seeking
to take control oi the Senate from the
Republicans is how can these various
factions he solidllicd and Ik; made one in
interest. No satisfactory arrangement
has yet I ecu proposed and the more the
discussion proceeds the less appears to
he the chance of definite action.
Caucus bave been numerous since the
Semite convened. The Populists, while
hoi Rug no formal caucus, have agreed
among themselves that they will support
tiny plan that may be endorsed by the
Democrats. So, too, the silver Republi?
cans? those who bolted the St. Louis
platform?have agreed to s'and by what?
ever policy may he Inaugurated by the
stronger oflicial bodies in opposition to
the element now in control ?>'' the Senate.
When the 1 lemnerat Ic caucus v. ;is called
for to-day there was no distinction be?
tween t in- men who endorsed the Chicago
plat form and those who stood on 'the In?
dianapolis platform. Notices of the cau?
cus were sent to every Democrat. Of the
gold u.en only Mr. Lindsay, ot[ Kentucky,
attended. Messrs. Gray, of Delaware,
and CafTery, of Louisiana, were absent.
The absence of Mr. Gray is not looked
upon as significant, for the reason that
whenever the Senate adjourns over he al?
ways runs up to nis home for the few
days at his disposal. Mr CafTery, the
second absentee, was the permanent chair?
man of the Indianapolis convention and
his absence may have political signifi?
cance. The situation was discussed in a
rather informal manner, and the only
result reached was the .appointment of
the old steering committee with Senators
Faulkner, of West Virginia, and Smith,
of New Jersey, substituted for Senators
Brice and Blackburn, whose terms ex?
pired last Thursday.
The. efforts to take the committees
from the Republicans is antagonized by
some leading Democrats for various rea?
sons. Mt. Gorman thinks'the scheme
to consolidate all the factions'of the Sen?
ate by a combination with .'silver Repub?
licans and Populists would be dangerous
and would result in tin- establishment of
a precedent, that might prove embarrass?
ing in the fntt*re.
Mr. Jones, of Arkansas, chairman of
the national committee, is understood to
be opposed to it because the Democrats
have not .sufficient votes with those of
their allies to do what is proposed to be
done. This conclusion is based upon the
assumption that Senators Lindsay, Gray
and CafTery arc not Democrats. Mr
Jones is supported by several of the more
radical silver men, who hope to empha?
size their disapproval of the course of
these Senators. These same men also
appreciate the fact that if they Jiail pos?
session of the committees they would be
handicapped by the Republican house
ami the Republican President, and would
be unable to consummate any of their
own plans of legislation.
The Republicans do not oxoect any seri?
ous results. They have so far failed to see
just how the contending elements in the
Senate will be able to agree upon a plan
of action. At the same time t he Reptlb
licans realize their impotence, not having
more than 43 votes ami jwith little hope
of having the two Senators appointed
from Kentucky and Oregon seated.
The belief on the part of tin- leading
Republican Senators'is that t he silver
Democrats cannot count upon the Hvotes
of the gold Democrats in any plan that
contemplates the organization of the com?
mittees by the silver vote ol the Semite.
They alsi believj that the vacancies on
tin- various committee-, will 'he "tilled by
ngreement by the Republicans and Dem
oerats und until such agreement is reach?
