Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - August 16, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia THE ATLANTA CONST VOL. XXII. ATLANTA, GA., SATURDAY MORNING, AUGUST 16, 1890. PRICE FIVE CENTS. COMPLETELY OUTVOTED WESE THE FORCE BIT.T, 31EN BY THEIS OWJf SESA.TOKS. THE STORY OF THAT CAUCUS. Steed and. the Pro-Force 'Bill Men Anxious to Ellntl Some Way Out of Their Predica- News. "WASHINGTON, August developments today regarding last night's senatorial caucus demonstrate that tho re- publicans who (favor the shelving of the Ijayonet bill not only douiinatoil the caucus, but absolutely controlled a majority of the Totes, The test of strength came when Senator Hoar made a motion to include the elec- tions bill in the programme of legislation for this session. Tho vote resulted: (Allison, Blair, Casey, Dolph, Ed- munds, Evarts, Hawley, lliggins, Hoar, In- galls, Mandersou, Moody, Flalt. Sanders, Sherman, Spooner, "Wilson and Alilicn, Cameron, Davis, Dixou, Hale, Hiscock, Jones of Nevada, McMillan, Mitchell, Paddock, Pettigrow, Plumb, Power, Quay, StoekViridgo, Teller and It was defeated by a square yea and nay vote, and the Quay men could easily have followed up their victory by passing the Quay resolution. Some of them favored putting the force bill crowd out of their imscr> on tho spot. The counsels of the more conservative who tliat feeling was running high and that tho adoption of the resolution would cause a split which would not only de- stroy all party discipline but which might lead to all sorts oi unpleasant results, pre- vailcd. It was, therefore, deemed best to defer final action in order not to humiliate Hoar and his followers more than is abso- lutely necessary. Eec.l and the rabid pro force bill men in the house were rearing aud roaring like caged, lions this morning, but both Speaker Heed and Senator Hoar realize that the jig is up, aud the Litter has devised a now wbeme to get hun-clf, tbe adminis- tration and the supporters of soldiers-at-tho- polls generally out of tbe hole which the in their own camp, (lug for them. They now propose to effect a com- promise with the democrats by which the tariff bill can bo disposed of by August 30th. After this tbey desire that the force "bill shall be taken up, with the solemn pledge tbat after a couple of speeches are jnade by Hoar and Spooner, congress shall adjourn with the forco bill pending. This, they argued, would endorse the action of tho hoube and the adminis- tration and leave the issue open for de- Toate on the stump this fall. "What will come of the compound prop- osi tiou it is impossibl e to predict now. However, whatever conies of it, it is merely a blind to cover tho retreat of tho de- feated advocate of the force bill. The democrats are enjooing the fight "between the rival republican chief tans to the fullest extent, but they are taking no part in it. They are in a position now to "dictate terms and it is doubtful Tvhesher tbey would vote to close the de- bate on the tariff bill August 30th in order to postpone the force bill until next ses- sion. There is a growing feeling among "the senators that they ought not to sacrifice the full discussion of tho tariff order to secure the defeat of the election "bill, that they should continue to con- sider the McKinley bill carefully, as they been doing up to this time. Some of them believe that they might defeat the bill if they set about it with that determination. The Census and Congress. One of tho schemes the republican managers liave had on the stocks for the past few months Tvas to get in enough of the census returns to justify them in proceeding to make anew apportionment of members of the lionae of representatives. They believec' tbey could secure by such action a consider- able addition to the republican membership oJ body and of tbe electoral college and take from the democratic side, quite a number of members. But this scheme has now been abandoned. A fact that has cropped out in the declaration of Superintendent Porter that the returns from the several states cannoo be prepared in time to enable congress to make the reapportion ments desired. Probably "the preliminary returns" havi the eyes of the republican managers ti the fact that under a reapportioumont the democrats will make large, even surprising .gains. Take, for instance, the state of Texas It is within probability that she would gain upon the present basis of apportionment five members; certainly the increase will be not less than three. In Alabama there will be an increase of at least three, and there will prob- ably be an, increased number of members, probably four, in other democratic states. On the other-hand, Massachusetts will lose twp jnembers, Connecticut one. and in none of the new states or other republican states will there "be any increase. In short, it is more than a possibility that Tipon the basis of the present apportionment the democrats would gain under the new cen- sus more than they would lose. Motes, Photographer. Sir.

Cplonel Darnell came in on this morning's train, and at once went to the Canton hotel, where ho met and, talked with a number of his party and personal friends ho bad gathered here to bear him speak. I had a talk with the colonel before his spcecb. When asked if it ss as true he was a candidate for congress lie said: "I have never permitted myself to make any announcement of my can- didacy, nor authorized any one to make any such, announcement for me: however, the time has coino when the people, no doubt, desire to know, and, since the demo- cratic nominee lias been named, I have 110 objection to stating that I would con- sent to bo the candidate of my party if the nomination should be tendered to rue by there- publican convention, to beheld, perhaps, early in September; and I shall state in my sj.eech today that I am a candidate Tor the republican nomination for from this diatLiut."

This exception is a provision for the payment of the French spoliation claims aggregating GK8. All provisions for payments to widows of deceased congressmen are btricken out, as well as extra allowance for compensation of official re- porters ot" the house.
