THE present week in the senate

ing to the shaping of tbe policy
of the party in power on the tariff
iineBtion. Three very important mat
ten ar expected to transpire tomorrow,

Republican mem hern of the finance
committee, the Democratic caucus with
the mine bill a a basis lor the discus

fair on the Hawaiian investigation
For two weeks, Mr. Bland has nu
avuilingly striven to bring a majority
of tbe bonss to th support of bis bill

induce a majority to vote upon the
question of olosing debate on the meaS'

CMBBiy and long desired iti irum will
manifest itself tomorrow or Tnesd ly
A prominent member, who ha not
taken an active part in tits controversy
over the bill, but who has voted to
consider it, laid this evening "1 very
much doubt tbat the bill wiiuh passed
even if a quorum be securer! to act
upon If thn Republicans will vote with
the DemocrHtfl Who nr- opposed
to the bill in the present form, it can
be shorn o( Ha most objectionable fost
ureM. The first section can be changed
so as to permit the issue of certificates

it shull be coined. With the pr-sent
mint falJlltnW f.ht wonld amount to
about two millions a month, distribut
ing the issue over a period of nearly
two and a half years And the second
section can be stricken out altogether,
The proposition to incorporate author
