bill for the time being , with the undcistand-
inL'thiUlf coiisldomtion lusted moro tlnn
a rensoniblo tlirie three or four days the
taillf bill was again to bo taken up. An an
nouncement to this effect was made a week
ago and the democratic senators had made
arrangements accordingly , which are sadly
disturbed. At the solicitation of tlio man *
ngers of the tariff hill a majority of the com
mittee on commerce liavo agreed to let the
ri er and harbor bill lay o'\er for
another week. The argument that v.is
used to bring them to consent to this
ct inn go of programme wai that the domo-
ci-atlc senators aicso deoplj interested in the
success of the river and haiuor bill that they
would hasten action upon the tariff bill in
order to secure consideration of the former
measure ; that their political cupidity Is so
great that It would OMirrido tlio determina
