Democrat* of Upper Houss Decided
Against Filibustering as a Party nnd
the Texan Walks Out—Fourteen
Republican Votes Are Necessary to
Defeat the Pending Measure In the
Washington, Aug. 2.—In both tho
senate and house there were intima
tions of opposition to the adoption of
the conference report on the tnriff bill,
which for a time looked formidable.
Tho situation in the house soon
cleared up, but tho clouds did not dis
perse so rapidly in tho senate.
Early In the day It was stated that
twenty-eight Republican votes would
be cast against the bill In the house.
The afternoon, however, had not pro
greased far when the Republican lead

ance their confidence in tho paaaage
of the bill by a majority of at least
ten votes. Most of the antagonism
came from the representatives who
aro opposed to free hides, but there
was also some on other accounts.
The most intense feeling in the
senate came from Southern Demo
crats, who found in the action of the
conference} in putting binding twin
on tho free list und leaving cotton
bagging on the dutiable list an exhi
bition of partiality which they de
nounced as altogether unwarranted.
This sentiment found free expression
In tho caucus of Democratic senators,
but the caucus reached a decision
against a filibuster as a party.
Bailey Quits the Caucus.
There was, however, an understand
lng that if individual Democratic Fon
ators desired to ro3ort to dilatory tac
tics they should be left free to do so
This latter decision was taken bo
cause of the attitude of Senator Hal
Mr. Bailey left the caucus before
tt had concluded, telling the other
members that ho proposed to pursue
any course which he deemed best in
the Interest of the Southern planters
When, afterwards, he was asked
whether he would speak at length he
declined to say what his course would
be, but it Is understood that he and
some other Democratic senators will
exert themselves to the utmost to
obtain recommittal of the conference
report with instructions to take carr
of the South in the matter of cotton
There is also much fault found
among Democratic senators over the
increased tax on tobacco, which, th
declare, was imposed to make up for
the reduction of the corporation tax
The votes of fourteen Republican
senators would be necessary to reject
the conference report and the Repub
llcan leaders say that the number will
not be recorded against It. Seven or
eight of the original "insurgents" will
cast their ballots In opposition to the
report, but it Is not believed that their
example will be followed by many
other Republic una.
UR. MONDELL CAUSES DELAY

Washington, Aug. 2.—At the very
