deter mined effort to pass election bill The Democratic opposition to this bill was so strong that there little donbt that6T ery possioie dilatory action wouia Da taKen to accomplish its defeat One of these ac tions would undoubtedly be the pro longation of the tariff debate and the ex pectation of many Republican senators is that the Republican leaders will be able to give to the Democrats in the senate the assurance th at no effort will be made to pass the election bill at this session and that with this understanding an agree ment will be reached to cut short tbe de bate on the tariff bill so as to send it into conference by the last of this month FLANNERYS STATUE OF LOGAN A Description of the Model Iu Plaster Now Completed WASHIXGTOX CITT July a little frame house under the shadow of
