received such a shaking up as It has not had for months Throo silver Stewart and Teller assailed tho Force bill and tho Financial bill in a way which mado the follicles on Senator Hoars bald spot elevate them selves with rage while Senator Hale of Maine assailed the cloturo rulo In a par ticularly raspingmanner tho result of all of which was to extract tho confession from Senator Hoar that Republican ab senteeism was preventing Republican action on any of thoso measures of interest engaging tho Senate Ho did not however confess what Js tho truth that so many Re publican Senators are opposed to tho Federal Elections billthat they are pur posely absenting themselves in order to prevent a vota being taken on Nearly as many aro opposed to tho closure rulo and the chances of tho dead lock being broken aro no better than they woro a week ago Senator Toller was par ticularly bitter In his denunciation of tho closure rule which ho asserted would pro vent any amendments being offered to pending legislation Hs intimated that it was purposely fio drafted to head off a voto on free coinage There can bo no doubt that tho silver men are growing more and more impatient at tho delay in reaching financial legisla tion but their are not yet confident of being able to hold together all of tho sil ver faith Iu any radical movement It Is said that thoro is somo influence being brought upon certain Western men but it Is difficult to determine what is tho character of the Influence It Is suggested that tho intimation has come from the East that if too radical silver legislation Is Insisted up on some Western bankers brokers and speculators will find It very hard to get money without paying an extraordinary in terest and furnishing unquestionable se curity This is suggested as tho very I natural result of free coinage Matters are getting in such alsbape how joverthat the leading silver mon say they must take some action protnptly else wait foranbthor Congress to pass a free coinage jbill They find no promise of speedy legis lation on finance in tho adootion of a closure rule This rule might Insure a vote on the Electipn bill at such time as the managers should determine but if it Is not adopted promptly tho Election bill may stand in tho way of silver legislation for come time without being itself endangered by the managers thus far havo given assurance that if the closure rule Is jadopted the Election bill will be disposed of tat once Silver men therefore fbol that they will have gained nothing by tho adop tion of closure but will have put themselves iln of the antisilver men If they assist in clearing tho way for action the Election bill without f any assurance action will bo had afc will have abandoned about the only weapon they have Therefore somo of that there should be prompt aQtibaon What they can accom plish depends upon their success In holding itheir together They feel that every moment taken up in the consideration iof tliaElection bill puts additional difficulty in tho way of free coinage and they believe the passagoof the Election wore assured thoro would bo Senators who endeavor to keep tho question before tltOvSenatc as long
