the Senate a fow days ago that he would soon move to lay aside the Election bill and tako up tho Pure Pood bill and he will boforo long again tako occasion to renew the warning He will give his party howvcr simple op portunity to either pass the election bill or conclude to lay it aside In this connection it may be Interesting to state that Paddock has been misquoted from the beginning in regard to his position on this bill A dis patch originally sent from here describes an interview alleged to have taken place between the President and the Senator in which the former is said to have upbraided the latter for not supporting the bill The interview thus picturesquely ro lated not only never said Pad dock but the President never mentioned either tho Elections bill nor the Tariff bill

of Republicans in the country aro interested while financial legislation vitally concerns all business men and is sadly needed Oortaiuly this is the situation in Nebraska I havo not yet re ceived a single letter from my State either for or against tho Elections bill which is a sure indication of a lack of Interest la it Another tiling against the Elections bill Is that it is regarded with a

botveen Sen ators Eclrnnnds and Hoar regarding tho fu ture programme in the Senate Edmunds believes it would bo perfectly right and proper for the presiding officer of the Senate to refuse to recognize the minority Senator and thus bring tho Elections bill to a vote Senator Hoar and others do not go this far but claim that the presiding officer has power to bring to a oloso any filibustering proceedings which have for their object tbe defeat of a rule They assert that forcible measures in this case would be constitu tional because tho Constitution givos each House the right to determine its rules This distinction between the cloture for a bill and cloturo for a rule is a fine one and has not been commented upon The Late Wyoming Homicide A Cheyenne dispatch says The
