to ascertain what the republicans would do cldo to do This was , In fact , the Intentions of the republicans nnd they drifted to the usual meeting place after supper , fully expecting thai another conference would beheld hold , but ftor Informally talking over the situation with each other In the rotunda , the idea seemed to prevail thai a conference was not necessary al this tlmo nnd the mem bers gradually drifted away again , whllo the Independents gravitated back to the Undcll Allen U Strong. That the sltuallon Is precarious as viewed from the republic n standpoint , admits of no dispute.

They stand in need of twelve democratic votes , whllo Clarke is awa\ , but would need thirteen if howero In his soit This Is why they have been so anxious for the past two dajs to have him excused As It now Is , If they secure their slxtj-six votes the proba bilities are that the republicans would de mand a call of the house , vv hlch would block further proceedings until Clarke could bo brought hcie , nnd which would at the same time put them lo Iho necessity of scaring up another voto. It was stated jestcrday that Senator Clarke was i.ipidly convalescing , but the Information is given out tonight that ho has suddenlv become a very sick man again , and that his presence hero , during the earlier ilhjs of Iho week at least is entirely out of the question In view of the slgnlll- canco of this state of affairs there is llttlo doubt that the Independents will make a vlgorots effort on Monday either lo excuse the sick man or repeal the rule which pro- v ides for u call of the house.

The danger in the situation lies in the fact that the opposition is so near the jumping off place that accidents aio oxticmcly liable to happen , and all the moro so because of the great number of prominent boosters on the other side w ho are trj Ing to crowd the lomnlnlng vote over into the pool Several of the supposed leaders of Nebraska democracy who are anxious to curry favor with tno coining national admin istration are fully convinced that llio raosl offcclual waj of doing so would bo to assist in perfecting a successful combination that would prevent the rotuin of a icpubltc.in to the United Statcssenatc I3v-GovcinorBojd Is ono of these who may bo classed In this category and ho Is aided and abetted in his undci taking by Judge Chailes Ogclen of Omaha , who has been his light bower for Bomo years past.
