MlMinderstnndlng Develops The understamlingof the western sen ators who are interested in the passage of the financial bill was that tho bill agreed to in CFIUCUS would be reported to the sen ate at the earliest possible day and tbaV the election bill would be laid aside for it They understood also that the new rule would not be reported before the financial mouBiire was disposed of unless it be came necessary to coerce the Democrats with it into passing the financial bill The eastern senators who nre not very favora bly disposed toward the caucus bill voted for it with the understanding that its fate would be linked with that of the election bill and that the new rule would be taken up IngifcllH Proves a Stumbling lllock ill accordance with this idea Senetor Al drich called a meetingof the committee on rules yesterday afternoon but Ingalla de clined to attend the rneetjng because ho is among tho senators opposed to consider ing a change of rules before the financial measure is taken up As the Democratic senators would not attend tho meeting there no quorum and therefore the meeting could not be held Ingalls will not attend a meeting of the committee be fore his departure for the

to pass a free coinage bill If the Republican senators split on the question of bringing the new rule before the financial measure lis con sidered both the election bill anil the financial bill may
