from Agreement Than Ever FREE COINAGE OUT OF THE QUESTION The Silver Senators to Be Made the Scapegoats for the Failure of JjCffis of Another Caucus Washington Notes JtrnEAtT J 20 1800 LAKE Turnum 517 Fourteenth Street WASHINGTON D Dec Tho hopes of prompt legislative notion aro slowly but surely fading away as the radi cal disagreements among the Republi cans manifest themselves Evon the caucus fails to hold the party hi lino There are wider differences of opinion tonight Republicans than thero were a week ago and it must be admitted there aro smaller chances for any agreement which can bring tbo party together Tho Finance Committee it is true has reported the caucus bill but it will noc receive in present form the support of a single member of the committee A majority of the caucus pledged themselves to stand by Uio meas ures but thoy wore to be absolved If unanimity of sentiment among the Republi cans could not bo maintained Tho froo coinage advocates will be made the scapegoats for tho failure of legislation but tholr persistent demand for free coinage gives Aldrlch and Sherman Hoar and flls oock alongodfor opportunity to oppose any iinanclal legislation In thj Hue of progress Ifc must bo said from the situation this evoning that no bill can pass tlio Senate without a froo coinage clause added and that a bill thus amendod cannot pass the HOIIKO and receive tho Presidents sanction An agreement had been reachod among thfl House leaders to rush through tho caucus bill when it camo from the Sonatc and had Iho advocates of froo coinage been willing to accept any compromise tho bill would doubtless have become a law It docs not look tonight as though a compromise was possible aud on that account it Is ex tremely doubtful whether remodial finan cial legislation stands much chauoo at tho present session Free coinage is admittedly out of the question Its stongest advocates have no hope for that this session but a bettering of tho silver market could readily be secured if tho caucus measure or one similar could bo put through There Is talk of another caucus next wook to try to straighten out the tangle Every days delay Is vital at this time

tho two Governments since the first seizure in and1 the duty of Congress in the present position of tho cjuestton Tho message will be framed with especial reference to tho ponding proposal of tlio British Government for arbitration which proposal it is in tended to reject The personal bitterness between Blalno and Lord Salisbury that has arisen out of the negotiations perceived hore to consti tute a material objection to a continuance of efforts towards a sottlement especially after the diplomatic relations between tho two Govenunents shall have been strained by the eiiorgetlc manner in which Blatne is preparing to show up the hollow ness and unfairness of the British arbitra tion project It is because of the seemingly hopeless ness of tho prospect of a sottlement by peaceful means and of tho necessity of al most Instantly resolving upon a now course of conduct for the United States that the President has determined to lay the matter fully before Congress and to apply for legislative assistance in shaping and en forcing tho policy of tho im mediate future Tho pending British proposal is to refer to the determination or friendly And impartial arbitration the question whether the soi xures of British sealing vessels by tho United States were or were noc lawfur sei zures To this form of proposed submission of tho caso to arbitration tlio President strenuously objects and he never will agree to it unless Congress shall assume the re sponsibility and in some mode yielding ad herence tbit The President will give Con gress to understand that in the present state of tho matter he perceives neither authority nor reason to abstain next season from a literal enforcement of the provisions of the law for the protection of fur seals in Alaska and the waters thereof TTo will ask Congress for a liberal appropriation to meet the expense of fitting out chartered vessels in sufficient number and character to cap ture and dispose of tho numerous maraud ing vessels expected to enter Behring Soa next year PAUNCTWTOaB SET5fl NO A dispatch to the Herald from Washing ton says Sir Julian Pnuncefote lias ex pressed his surprise that there should be any difficulty in bringing tho Bearing Sea dispute to arbitration Buitb Great Britain and the United said he while diiToring upon the facts bearing upon tho question have a common object which seems susceptible of submission to arbitration The form of submission referred to by the President in his annual message is simply an offer upon the partof England to lay the dispute before an arbitrating power The Behring Sea dis pute is far less gravo than the Alabama Claims case which was submitted to arbi tration without friction What was done so readily then can surely bo done now If both parties are sincere as I cannot SUCCPS TASK ACCOMPLISHED THE FO KTYFIVJS DAYS FAST HIS HP Suffered Great Pain During Hours nnrt KesemWeii a Skeleton More Than n Living Man NBW YORK Deo Giovanni Succls fustof

Delegate Chisman m the late Constitutional Convention in Missis sippi declaring that since 1875 thero had not boon a fair election in that State that in PJI1 words thoy tho whites had been stuffing ballot boxes committing perjury and carrying elections by fraud and violence He also tho qualifi cations lor voters in the Constitution of Missis sippi among others being the ability of tho voter after Jan nary 1 1802 to read or to give a reasonable explanation of Uio meaning of any clause oC the Constitution of State If tho Constitution of Mlssisssipi had stopped at an educational test and excluded right of suffrage every white or black who could not that Instrument nobody would complain of it but now the ignorant white voter might havo tho simplest clause read to hi in and be asked II lie understood it and an swering yes might bo permitted to vote while HIV abstruse clause as is tho right oC eminent domain or some other technical questions might bo read to a colored voter who would be aked to give a reasonable explanation of it The scheme was plainly devised to let the ignorant white man vote if ho voted tho Democrat ticket and to keep tho ignorant black man from voting unless he voted that ticket and yet the Demo cratic Senators railed against the pending meas ure as giving tho supervisor lordly powers This Constitution of Mississippi had been adopted too hot by a vote of
