great deal of speculation ovtir the vote n the senate yesterdiiy on the motion to take up the tariff bill The six Repub ican Squire Stewart Teller Mitchell and voted with the Democrats against Merrills mo ion to take up the bill are earnest advo cates of free coinage and in the minds of the speculators the silver question was mmediately seized upon as the one to fur nish a reason for the peculiar attitude of the six western senators Aldrich a lead ing member of the finance committee when asked by a reporter of the United Press tor an explanntlon of the situation said I am not tha keeper of any ocher mans conscience and I do not know why ihese gentlemen voted as they did but I believe that this action is taken for the purpose of forcing eastern Republicans to a compromise on the silver question Didnt Like To Be Elbnwed One of the six senators said that he had voted against Merrills motion as a meas ure of elbowing the west around a good deal at this session of congress as he phrased it When later in the day the announcement ivas made that the conferred on silver aad come to an agreement tha reason for the peculiar vote of the afternoon became manifest It developed then that tho re maining point of difference between the conferreoa being the question of the amount of silver to be purchased monthly the antisilver men who were holding out for against 4500000 ouncesmade the proposition for a compromise 000 ounces This proposition was laid be fore the silver men by Jones of Neviida but they insisted on the full amount The Silver Men Win tne Fight In the meantime a great many dispatches had been received by the silver men urg ing them not to allow the tariff bill to be taken up until the silver question had Ijeen disposed of and when Morrill moved to take up the tariff bill they voted with the Democrats against the proposition is a result of this vote the conferrees cams to gether later in the afternoon and the western senators congratulate themselves in the belief that their vote on the tariff proposition has brought about a result in the conference acceptable as a cJ to the advocates of free coinage Not a democratic The conference report was signed by the Republican eonferrees only Senator Har ris and Representative Bland refused to sign it Bland said to reporter of the United Press that he was not satisfied with the conference report but would pre sent no minority report I have no doubt the report will be agreed to in the senate and in the house said Blandl The Re publican party has upon it aiad it will be put through I guess there is no
