And Tho following committee was appointed.Browne of Ludlan a Guclu of Ohio it cd of Maine Claun of Massachusetts Phillips of Kansas Dunnell of Minnesota Cannon of Illinois Oliver of Lowa and Mitchell of Penn Sylvania. The committee retired and were a Senta hour drafting Tho resolutions. During their a Scudo there was a general interchange of opinion and Huford Tho close thirty or forty members Apoc. There has Seldom been so Genera an interchange of views at any Republican caucus. Tho following were Tho principal speakers Gen. Banks Gen. Butler Browno of Indiana con Ger Patterson Blair Garfield Haskell. Kcal for Jlas Cllon Burchard Baker of Indiana Bacon Paige and others Flen. Dooks and.Browne of Indiana made striking speeches. Banks declared that Tho purpose was to strike Tho government and that Tho motives of the promoters of Tho movement were to in some Uia Lucr remove uatb9 either by a declaration of a vacancy in the presidential of la of by a process of impeachment. To thought the situation very grave nod Seri Ous one. Browne of Indiana entertained similar views Ami was of Tho opinion that Tho could not to too Earnest in denouncing tills revolutionary movement and la causing the people to understand the True situation. Gen. Butler made a speech of Tome length. Some of the republicans looked upon and he presence in Tho caucus with us Pinion Forte has been intimated that to was connected with til democratic conspirators who have planned this movement and it is known from own admissions that he bad Persona conferences with the principal wit Nesses relied upon by the democrats in the Florida matter. However the democrats Nave discovered that butlers follow Lar in Tho House is but Onu vote and Gen Butler possibly feel eng isolation did not like to absent himself from the Republican caucus. Be log there views a to Tho purpose and intentions of Tho democrats wore Worth something. Butler appeared to to of Opl Lou that the ultimate iut Cutlan of Tho do in Crocy was to proceed against Tho presiden tial title. X that to had to doubt. Butler was sharply quest Onedas to Tho possible modes which the democrats might adopt and among other thine answered that after March 4 next when the democrats have control of to Blu at it would to possible for Tho democracy of both houses to decline to recognise either Hayes of president or Wheeler As vice presi Dent to Ribco Onize tub omoo Putio president fro hero o the Senate As the president of the United flutes and to refuse to hold any communication with thu president executive. To did not think that Tadeu could by Auy mean be seated. , of Illinois referring to Tolo the Oiler Day to the cd acct that Tho Potter Resolution was a question of privilege said to had been authorized by a former speaker of the House a Lon with whom to had conferred with that View and that he voted on the subject convinced that it was o question of privilege. Fort had however no desire to Antigon ize Republican associates and voted cob dully with Tiibi upon the Resolution which was adopted to Day. Macon and Patterson of new York made Earnest speeches strains investigation and shared the apprehensions of the other speakers that the pcs thus of thu democrats were revolutionary. Garfield understood that the purpose of the democrats was to attack the presidential title and to thought Tho republicans should oppose Auy investigation thu democrats could have but two objects either to creat Campaign a Caudal or to move against Tho president. If the first wot their intention the our Poso was a unworthy one. If thu second it was revolutionary. Hale of Maine made remarks from the chair. To found the caucus More Dis posed to oppose any investigation than to support Bis Resolute of. Tho Point was made that if Trie investigation Colum Post cd by Potter s Resolution a revolutionary the republicans could hardly justify themselves in Sopor Long Hales amendments and that the Wiser course would is to oppose the Lovesta cation. From to action of the caucus it is apparent that the party trill not make a stand on Halo s amendment and that the will Orros All investigations. The position of the republicans has thus been radically changed by the action of the caucus. The filibustering of the last few Days has proceeded upon the Hale amendment and the de to Randof the Republican that the amendment should he admitted. The democrats have been at Liberty to draw their own inferences that the deposition of republicans would Stop if to amendment was adopted. Upon the report of thet committee appointed to draft resolutions there was some objections to the first Resolution which declared that the presidential question had been settled by the electoral commission and should not be Dos Turbed. Borne of the republicans who had voted against the electoral commission Bill preferred that reference to the commission should be omitted on Tho ground that the commission was simply a joint committee of Congress and to real Power which decided the Issue was the forty fourth Congress. Accordingly the Resolution was made to read simply that to forty fourth Congress settled tub question. Upon Tho first Resolution As adopted there was entire unanimity. There were a few dissenting votes upon Tho last Resolution which declares that every expedient shall to exhausted to defeat any invest Gatlon. The decision of Tho caucus practical la la that filibustering shall continue until to democrats obtain a quorum of their own number so that the responsibility will by with them to subject of filibustering shall remain open after that and that Tho re publican shall Vole is n unit until otherwise determined. Meanwhile the democrats Are becoming some what uneasy at their own position. Conserva to leu democrats and a Large number of Southern democrats were very indignant that the party should Hare been forced into this movement without consultation. Private expressions upon this subject to Day i ave Obb Vert hitter and Only to most terrible Ami tyrannical party discipline will keep Tho democrats together and there Are indications that there will to some who under no circumstances will vote for Tho Resolution unless it shall positively state that the purpose of to inquiry is not to invalidate the presidential title. Carter Harrison has the Honor of being one of the most Earnest in this movement and it is said that to does not to t tend Lovoto with Bis party for any investigation unless some Resolution like the following which to Boa prepared As an amendment he adopted i Terbay the electoral commission committed 0 grave error in refusing to go behind to electoral certificates in the Stales of Florida and Louisiana yet their action having been sustained by thereto of the Senate and House of representatives. De Claring Itu Berford a Hayes president of the United states it is nowt than the Power of con Gress Toan Nunsuch declaration. It la said that the democrats who arc determined to take this position arc Carter of Illinois Hart of now York Morau of Massachusetts Mills of Tux of Buckner of Missouri and probably Alexander 11. Stephens. The latter. It is re ported will speak upon the subject if Opportunity is offered.
