From our regular correspondent: Washington. Jan. 20. Mr. Harrison has succeeded by persuaion. bull-dor.in and promise of pattonage in getting the icuuircau ouiiawrs to maKe a last des perate effort to perpetuate the power of the republican party by passing the force bill, and the fitrht is now on wnicn is to result either in striking i deadly blow at the liberty of the Amur! can citizen, by the passage of a measure wunoui a parauei in American annals or in the nnai deieat of the bill. r inuing 11 impossible to unite the re publican Senators in support of the rev- olutionary gag rule proposed by Senator Aiuncu me republicans nave adopted mo tiring out process, ana hope by continuous night and day session of the Senate to succeed in compelling the democrats to accede to a vote on th hill. i nis, it is not ueneved, they can do J he session which began last Friday luumiug uas ueeu ill coutiuuous SCS-ilOIl ever since, except on Sunday, and is to continue until the republicans tire of it or succeed. i tie democrats are makinir a grand hght in talkiug against tim and express confidence of being able to win. How the democrotic Senators feel in this matter may be iudized from the following extract from a speech of Sena - tor iteagan, wnicn reflects the senti ments ot his democratic colleagues, ai.d. nows that tney will never wiliinirlv surrender: "As dear as my life is to me, as God is my Judge, if I could save the American people from the pending measure by giving up my life, I would surrender it as lreeiy as 1 ever per- iormeu any act in my ine. ' it was an imposing sight to see Senator Reatran as lie stood, every teature showing his earnestness "and sincerity, and spoke these words, and it was not surprising that they were greeted by an outburst of deafening applause from the galleries, wnicn Mr. Morton was qulcn to remove by threatening to have the galleries cleared. senator Stewart on Saturday gave notice oi a motion to recommit the elec tion bill with instructions to the com mittee to report it back with a provision for the election of members of Congress on days when no other elections are held in the several states; and this mo tion may be made the excuse for getting ridot the bill quietly when the republi cans discover their inability to pass it, for if it is recommitted to the committee it will never get before the Senate again. Notwithstanding their having made speeches against the Force bill Senators Teller, Wolcott and Stewart are now acting with and voting with their re publican colleagues in their efforts to pass the bill. This is significant, in as much as it shows that the democrats need expect no help from republicans in defeating the bill. A..

Reed has the au dacity and the nerve to resort to any methods to deieat it, and n he doesn't attempt to do so, it will only be be cause he prefers seeing Air. Harrison, whom ne disuses' very much, weaken and sign it, as I believe he will, it it passes the House. Mr. Harrison has made threats betore, but his spinal column has always wilted when the time came to carry them out. Another erstwhile prominent repub lican is in the toils ot the law. W. P. Canaday; who for many years, because of his ability to control the North Caro lina delegation to republican national conventions, held the position of Ser- reant-at-Arms ot the united States senate, has been arrested for obtaining money under false pretenses. And ve gods, how cheap he sold his character. The amount he obtained on a worthless check was just $35. Some startling exposures will shortly be made by the House Committee which is investigating the silver pool charges, unless the witnesses among whom are ssenator Stewart and Journal Clerk Smith of the House, shall refuse to tell the committee what they are al leged to have told to private parties. The democratic leaders of the House are carefully watching the proceedings n the senate and should the Force Bill pass that body they are prepared to make a dosperate light on it in the House when it goea there for concur rence in the Senate amendments.
