AN EXTRA SESSION
MAY BE NECESSARY
Views of Senators and Congressmen on
RELIEF EXPECTED FROM THE S5TII
But There Are Few Hopes Expressed
That the Uingley Bill or Any Other
Measure for the Purpose ol' Secur
ing Revenue to ltun the tiovcrn
mcnt Can lie Passed in the 51th
Washington. Nov. 15. With a view
of ascertaining the views of the lead
ing men In congress aa to the pndiabll
II y of tariff legislation In the next ses
sion of congress, and as to the likeli
hood of an extra session, the Washing
ton bureau of the United Associated
Presses has sought the written opin
ions of a number of prominent sena
tors und representatives. The replies
received show quite a diversity of
views and are exceedingly Interesting.
A few of them are as follows:
Senator Hrlee, of Ohio "It Is nulte
certain that the Republican president
elect will, after March 4 next be sus
tained by a large Republican majority
in the house of representatives and by
a sufficient Republican majority In the
Second That the free sliver men will
be In the minority in the senate as well
as in the house of representatives.
Third That while some' of the free
silver senators, who have heretofore
prevented the passage of the Dingley
bill, with such amendments as mny
make certain a sufficient revenue, will,
In view of the result of the election,
probably vote with their Republican
caivis 8. nnicE.
bretnre... It Is Immaterial whether
they do or not, as In my opinion a suf
ficient number of round money Dem
ocratic senators will assist the Repub
licans to pass the necessary tarllf legis
lation in the Fifty-fourth congress to
supply the existent deficit in the reve
nue. I at least shall so vote, and I un
derstand thnt Senator Gorman and a
number of others occupy the sanu1 po
sition." Senator Sherman says: "In the pres
ent condition of affair I do not care
to impress my opinion as to the proper
taril' and financial Iw.-rlslatloti of this
or the next congress."
Senator Allison, of Iowa "I do not
think It Is practicable to predict what
will be (lore, or can be done, as re
spect.! tariff and financial legislation,
during the last sesion of the r'ifty
fourth congress. I hope the Dingley bill
will pass w'lli such modification:! as
mny bu nevesasry to secure stilllelont
revenue lo enrry on the government.
If Ibis (mint be done during the fr'if'.y.
fourth It Kerns to me an extra iMdon
of I ho ! ifty-iif th congress Is Inevit

Senator Hawley, of Connecticut
"As to the financial legislation to be
expected from the coming sesion I
should hope that a well guarded, care
ful bill, defining the circumstances un
der which the executive might Issue
bonds, may be passed. The possibility
of adopting a eatlsafctory revision of
the tariff seems to me very doubtful.
If the revenues permits It. the matter
ought to go over to the extra session
of the Fifty-fifth congress, with a view
to securing such revision as I refer to.
If that could be had it would prob
ably give the country a very desirable
rest in the matter for the next four
Senator Walthall, of Mississippi "I
ee no reason to Justify the expecta
tion that there will be any Important
tariff or financial legislation at the ap
plonehing session of congress. I can
form no opinion as to what will be
done at a possible extra session of the
Flly-flfth congress In advance of the
senatorial elections to occur during the
coming winter." The views of Senator
Morgan, of Alabam.-., and Senator
Tillman, of South Carolina, have al
ready been published in there dis
patches. MR. PINO LET HAS NO HOPK.
Mr. Dingley. of Maine, refers to the
recently published Interview In these
difcpatehes. In which he expressed the
opinion that there was not the slight
est hope of the passage of the so-called
Dingley bill by the senate at the next
ression of congress, and tnat the lions?
would not propose anything further
in this direction at the approaching
(leneral Grosvenor, of Ohio "I do not
believe It possible that any material
legislation for the benefit of the coun
try can be passed In the fifty-fourth
congress." The senators who have left
the Republican party in the Interest of
a few silver mine owners of the west
will resent rather than obey the de
mands of an enormous majority of the
people of the United States that the
greatest (rood shall be the rule of their
action rather than the selfish greed of
less than fifty soulless corporations of
the Rocky Mountains. Hence these
men who have no future In the Repub
lican party will resist all attempts to
relieve the treasury by any legislation
that does not recognize the paramount
interest of the silver mine owners. The
Republicans of congress will not submit
to that, and they have behind them
the overwhelming support of the Amer
ican people. Consequently no good can
come of the last session of the fifty
"I do believe that the Republican
party will be in a position In the fifty
fifth congress to save the country from
bankruptcy and the industries of the
country from destruction. Any at
tempt by combinations In the senate or
In the house to Impede the carrying
Into law the wiH of the people will
destroy the men who attemnt it. They
will be run over and crushed."
Representative Steele, of Indiana
"I hope that the senate will now agree
to the Mil to provide temporary re
lief for the government and meet the
deficiency in the revenue, and one pro
viding for advertising the sale of bonds
and one providing for a temporary
loan, that were reported from the com-
mittee on wars and means and passed
the house last December, lioth were,
In my estimation, reasonable. Judicious
measures, and If the senate should
agree to them It would put us in such
shape as to obviate an extra session
COMPLEXION OF CONGRESS.

Results ol Election.

Canton, Nov. 15. President-elect Mc
Klnlcy passed another very quiet Sun
day. Mr. Webb Hayes, son of the late
President Hayes, tame down from
Cleveland on a morning train and
spent the day at the McKinley resi
dence. Mr3. McKir.lcy'a health has been so
far restored that she was able to go
driving for half an hour this after
noon. Although various newspapers have
published complete cabinet outfits for
the Incoming administration, it Is safe
to assert that none of them has been
built upon anything resembling an
authoritative announcement from
Major McKinley or those who nre clos
est to him. it is evident that the President-elect
has not made up his mind
as to the formation of his cabinet, nor
even deoidod upon the geographical
allotment of places therein. It Is fur
ther apparent that Major McKinley
will not consider cabinet candidates un
til after his return from his visit to
Clevelnnd. According to present ar
rangements, the president-elect and
Mrs. McKinley will leave for Cleveland
on Wednesday morning. Since Cliaun
cey M. Depew has censed to be talked
about so frequently for secretary of
state there has been a gcod deal of
discustdon here of the probability of
his being appointed minister to Eng
land. It Is known that Major McKin
ley has a very kindly feeling for Mr.
Depew, and the latter's friends here
assert that he would find life as am
bassador at the court of St. James ex
A friend of Major McKlnley's said
to-night that Senator Sherman un
doubtedly expressed the desire of most
of Major McKlnley's closest advisers
when he said that congress should
pass the Dingley bill this winter. The
new administration will not care to
be saddled with an extra session of
congress, and Major McKinley will
have quite enough to occupy him In
organizing his administration.
Major 'McKlnley's advices from
Texas are of a most satisfactcry char
acter. They indicate an Increase In
the Republican vote of the State of
over 100 per cent.
EFFECT OF THE ELECTION.
Henry Clews, of New York, writes:
"The magnetic effect of your election
has already advanced the price of se
curities dealt In at the New York Btock
exchange over a hundred million dol
lam, and a corresponding amount in
the securities dealt In in the different
local markets throughout the country.
Spot cash wheat has advanced both In
Chicago and New York since the elec
tion fourteen cents a bushel. It has
reduced the rate of Interest on call
money in New York from 100 per cent,
per annum to 4 per cent., and time
money from not being obtainable on
scarcely any terms Is now being freely
offered at from thirty days to a year at
4'3 per cent, per annum. Mercantile
paper was unsaleable, while now it is
sought for at 5 per cent, per annum. A
general shut down was jilunned by
manufacturers In the event of your de
feat, whereas, now, as the result of
your election, Increased labor Is being
employed and machinery that was here
tofore idle cuused by the prolonged
bad times is starting up again with
renewed vigor in all directions. The
cducntlon in the fundamental laws of
finance which our people have received
in the past campaign places us in a
unique pdeKion. The result of building
up credit and business upon such a
foundation must surely be to make a
period of prosperity such as has never
before been approached."
Hon. J. O. Dickman. Judge of the su
preme court of New York, suys "Your
last letter to Mr Mnnna made my
heart leap for Joy. and I could grapple
you to my soul with hooks of steel.
You stand now on a plane with Wash
ington and Lincoln, with opportunities
seldom vouchsafed to mortal num."
Hon. Andrew D. White, member of
the Venzuela commission, Washington,
1), C suys: "No one has felt nior
deeply than myself the significance of
the recent contest, not only to our own
country, but to the whole world; and
no one has admired more your discus
sions of the muln questions at issue, or
the manner in which you have main
tained the dignity of your candidacy."

administration on the Cuban question
have been circulated during the past
week and various articles of a contllct

The president has said that he does
not anticipate an:' trouble with Spain
over the Cuban situation and that there
is no Intention to change the policy re
specting the matter which was laid
down by the administration a year ago.
In addition to this members of the
cabinet have stated that the Cuban
matter would be left for the new ad
ministration to settle. While following
such a course may be the intention of
President Cleveland's administration,
the facts warrant the statement that
should an emergency arise requiring
prijupt and decisive action the several
deirtments of the government will be
found keenly alive to the requirements
of the occasion and amply provided for
any emergency which may be encoun
tered. Measures of a precautionary
character have been taken to meet any
critical conditions which may arise;
in other words the United States is
judiciously continuing the work of
strengthening its fortifications and

therefore, be prepared to change its pol

BIT OF ANCIENT HISTORY
What Marion Butler Said to Tom Wat
eon Georgia Orator Urged to
Flgbt the Gold Bogle Man.
I Washington, Nov. 13. Senator Ma
rlon Uutler, chairman of the Populist
national campaign committee, today
made public the following letter, which
he addressed to Mr. Watson two days
after the receipt of his letter of accept
ance: Washington, D. C Oct. 2fi.
To Hon. Thomas E. Watson, Thomson,
Dear Sir: Your letter of acceptance was
received Saturday nlht. It had been de
tained in the postotltee for want of suffi
cient postage. You, in efTect, advise Pop
ulists not to support the Joint electoral
tickets that have been arranged In a luiye
number of states. Is It possible that you
fully appreciate the efTect of such advice.
At least, upon retlection, you must know
that if cnoiiKh Populists should follow
such advice, it would mean the defeat f
Rryan, and the election of McKlnlcy.
Resides, If your advice should be followed
by enoiiKh Populists, the Populist party
would not have a single elector In the
electoral college, In the states where we
have joint electoral tickets, we will get
every elector that we do get, and, he
sides, It Is In those states where we will
Ket the bulk. If not all, of the People's
party congressmen. In your own stale,
und other states which have followed
your advice against electoral tickets, we
will not et a single elector, und 1 fear
not many congressman, if uny.
You certainly cannot mean, however,
munh as you may have favored a mlildle-of-
the-road policy In the beginning, to
advise your friends to do that which at
this time would be the most effective
UKt ncy In placing In power McKinley and
his Imekers the trusts and monoiiulles.
Can uny political or party Injustice, how
ever great. Justify us in being responsible,
cither directly or Indirectly, for placing In
power the stock Jobbers, monopolists,
trusts, the Kritish gold ring und all of
the combined robbers of the people und
enemies of good government. In the
name of outraged nnd suffering humanity,
whose prayers toduy go up from millions
of homes for William J. Bryan in his he
roic and marvelous struggle against the
corporate greed and the hellish gold con
spiracy, let us sink every other considera
tion and hold up his hands and do the full
duty of Americans ami patriots. Let lis
remember that It is a suffering people and
a holraytd republic, nnd not Democratic
politicians, that today cull for our help
and demand our services. Hrynn will be
elected ami the government redeemed if
every patriot does his duty. Let us do
Therefore, I beseech you to change at
least that part of your letter which gives
advice, which, if followed, would surely
help the common enemy.
If you do not, then you, yourself, must
assume the responsibility of giving such
a document to the public at this time.
Yours truly. Marlon Butler.

(Copyright, 1S90, by the Pnited Associated
Lerlin. Nov. Public interest lias
been greatly excited over the promised
interpellation of the Cenf ist leaders
In the Reichstag to-morrow demand
ing thnt the government disclose the
nature of the Rosso-German neutrality
tienty, the existence of which from 184
to 1MM was revealed in Prince HIs
marek's recent articles In his personal
organ, the Hamburger Nachrichten,
and an explanation why the agree
ment was allowed to lapse. Applica
tions for admission to the galleries
have been enormously In excess of the
capacity of the space devoted to vis
itors, and a full attendance of mem
bers cf the Reichstag Is also assured.
It was given out late last evening,
bowever. that it is not the Intention
cf the Centrist leaders to press the
debate beyond the Interpellation con
cerning the revelations or Prince HIs
marck to the extent of embarrassing
the government, but It Is, neverthe
less, certain that the debate will be
a very spirited one and likely to lead
1 1 sharp exchanges of personalities.
It is also understood that Count Her
bert Hismarck, who, it has been sug
gested, was responsible to a great de
gree for the publication of the revela
tions though nobody now believes that
he wiik 'vlll take part In the discuss'.o.'i
of the Centrist motion. An artle!, In
th'; Hamburg Nachrichten ln.1lcjr.es
that tlic line of the ex-chancellors de
fence of his course in making the ills-c-h'iu.ch
will be that it was In tnt In
terests of the country, which ought to
l.?nin i he motives which actuated th?
late Chancvellor Von Caprivi, in sev
ering the bond between Russia and
Oernirny which existed from mi to
IS'jti. li the count Is agreeable to ex
plain this action of the part of Prince
Ki.iiT.arik s successor to the chancel
lorship, the Nachrichten says, li will
be :t veiy easy matter to tran iiillUe
Germany by showing In what way Ger
man lelutious with the other foreign
powers made a Russian allianca unac
ceptable. "It will be equally Impor
tant," the paper continues, "to ascer
tain whether the policy of England ex
erted rn Influence xuch as did not c in
form to German interests; and the
iitsticn whether a powerful neighbor
like Rusi.t was not In closer sympathy
with Germany than with Germany's
adversary In Europe, meaning France,
Is one of the grandest Importance. This
line of nrgument, however, does not
meet the charge, and the ex-chancellor
committed a breach of the law In dis
closing state secrets, and Is rather of
the chnracter of nn insufficient nHlogy
for his course, an apology which only
out of deference to the great name of
Prince Bismarck can possibly be ac
15ASIJD ON AN OLD FKI7D.
Prince Bismarck's persistent attacks
upon bis successor and the crown as
well are supposed to be based upon
the presumed leaning of the Kaiser
toward England, nnd has a distinction
with the ex-chnncellor'B old feud with
the Kmnress Frederick, to whose In
fluence he has attributed the thwart
ing of his Russo-German policy. No
body suspects tbe prince of being act
uated by other thnn patriotic motives,
but his blas'for his personal opinions
has alwnvs made him Intolerant of
opposition. A majority of the press of
all shades while discussing the matter
from their respective political points
of view are rather sympathetic with
the old chancellor than otherwise.
The snecch recently delivered In
While Haven, England, by Lord Lons
dale, wlio is nn Intimate friend of the
emperor, In defence of the kaiser's
course In sendln a telegram some
months ago to President Kruger, of
Trasvaal republic, congratulating the
latter unon his prompt and effective
suppression of the Jameson raid, has
greatly added to the anti-English feel
ing, prevailing In tlermnny, and height
ened the suspicion that English family
inlluence Is still very much too strong
in the German court. Lord Lonsdale's
explanations of the emperor's course
certninly do not make amends for his
unqualified assertion that the kaiser
was never hostile to England's policy
in the Transvaal. The popular Ger
man antipnthv to England, however,
does not iinpl: a general acceptance
of Prince Bismarck's pro-Russian pol
icy. The Berlin newspapers comment
freely upon President Cleveland's at
titude in reran! to Cuba, and agree
that it Is his intention to assert the
right of the I'nlted States to dictate
Spain's future policy toward t'ubn.
