adjustment of our they have in effect by communication simply requested us to Democratic Fall XBTOBCB Special to THI DBS were reat expectations among the democrats ast night that discord could be worked up in the republican ranks on account of he Fort Madison During the whole time of the caucus there were democrats on the floor circulating among be members and trying in ire ways than one to sow seeds of dis cord among It was through the eneral courtesy extended to the public as spectators that the democrats were and it is a matter of surprise to nany that they abused the courtesy ex ended It became plainly appar ent to the great majority of members after the sixteenth ballot had that the longer the democrats remained n there the warmer the strife would be Work had been going on steadily for nearly three hours and it was apparent that something was Dnr ng the recess of ten minutes hat was taken the real cause of the trouble was made and hen the decision was reached of exclud

tome thing for the public to It was a matter of surprise that any of the re publicans allowed themselves to be so ooled with democratic arguments to continue the fight as long at they rat such was the and it was not discovered any too The discord they sought to arouse has not and will for their scheme was brought out so plainly that the factional strife was at once and now that the caucus has decided the republicans are as firmly united ss they ever All the talk this morning before the sea sion wos in regard to what the republi cans of the house would do in the way of answering the democratic call for a Among republicans it was generally understood what pre sented and the members of that tide of the house felt perfectly The caucus yesterday afternoon decided upon the jeneral

of organization against the we deny that they are a tarty organized or on any prin or so identified as to be responsible o the state for any legislation which may hereafter be enacted by this aa But we believe since they are held together by no community of trinciple or except an agreement o combine and force the republicans to make concessions to they are plainly obstructing organization by the larty which will be held responsible for Therefore the communica tion being not in the nature of a propo but of an invitation of the repub icans to make the opposition a give or ake offer of which under ts allowing them the first practically concedes the permanent peeker to the in addition to the speaker already held by and in dew of the fact that our responsibility for legislation renders it impossible for us to concede both temporary and per manent speaker without a surrender of and that is obviously unfair in he opposition to demand the re mblicans are forced to decline the in ritatipn to make this second offer of com romise as agreeing with the gentlemen on the other side hat an organization should be speedily the republicans stand ready to consider through their conference com

Holbrook replied they rould risk Every man in the opposition isd been elected in spite of republican ef forts for their defeat and would stand out against that The opposition had no settled plan of

people of the itate want something Blythe said the willingness of the op osition to get the conference committee o work met with republican Jut in the statements made yesterday the opposition tried to give out to the state that the democrats had a standing proposition to the when men was not the The language of he democratic communication of yester day plainly confessed that they were not one

the house would not sustain he To prove his as sertion he cited the counties of Floyd aad and said if the republi cans or the whole people of those coun ties had matters to do over again no such mistakes would be made as committed in the hut The defeat of the candidates in those locali aes was due to local not a battle tat the triumph of republican or demo cratic Having looked over the field
