The call for the caucus was circul

first who signed the call were Messrs.

It is significant that the names of

of Ohio, appear on the call. Mr. Outi.

was asked if a resolution would
be offered in the caucus instructing the
house couferrees to make the best' terms
possible with the representatives ol tiie
senate without regard to what the
nature of the compromise might be.
He replied that be conld not tell what
action the caucus might take, but he
for one, au 1 thero are many others
who felt as he did, thought that some
agreement should be reached and that
tho Democrats ought to get together in

reaching the agreement,
HOUSE C0SFEUKEE3 INVITED.
An effort will ha made to liavd the
house conferees attend the caucus and
acquaint those prenout with what they
have done uud what they hopa to ac
complish. The gentlemen who had
been instrumental in securing the cau
cus insist that they have no purpose of
embarrassing the couferees, but the dt
lay in reaching a conclusion ou tho bill
must be shorteued if possible. Those
who oppose the suggestion of a caucus
insist that It is inspired iu malice and
that it is practically a fire lu the rear
on the true friends of tariff reform.
OPINION OF MB. VOOltHUES.
Mr. Voorhees has given out tho fol
lowing authorized interview as ex
pressing tne position he holds upon the
questions over which bis colleagues aro
"It seems to mo," said Mr. Voorhees,
"there ought to he but little, if any,
difficulty in roaching an agreement be
tween the two houses. Tho concession
which the president advises the house
to make ou sugar is liberal aud ought
to be satisfactory to every legitimate
sugar interest. I can entertain no
doubt that it will furnish the basis of
a successful sugar schedule.
"The only other points of serious
trouble are embraced iu the question
whether coal and iron shall be free or
have a tariff duty laid on them of forty
cents per ton. These are exceeding
small nnd insigiiificaut items of con-,
troversy on whlcti to defeat a great
national sj-Htem i f revenue reform.
"There- is so little ground in my
mind now, for a final disagreement,
that those who continue to insist ou
small things and thus compel such dis
agreement, will be held us criminals by
all just minded people."

Philadelphia, Aug. 0, Hon. John
S. Durham of this city, who was for-nierl)-
stationed at 'Sauta Domingo aud
Port au Prince, Hay ti. as American
minister, today discredited the reports
of a revolution in that country. "The

concerning the political condition of
the country, and I feel safe in saying
that hid any serious outbreak oc

to that effect before now."

that personal letters from friends in
Sauta Domingo and one from President

the 21th of July, indicate that Il'inre
