THE ARMY BILL
TO BE PASSED
Enuaoe the Attention of the
Senate the Greater Part
of the Week.
DISCUSSION IS EXPECTED
Senator Piatt's Speech Calls for Re
plies Several Special 'features
Will Require Attention Ship Sub
sidy Bill Will Be Next on the Pro
gramme River and Harbor Bill to
Consume Two Days in House.
By Exclusive Wiie from The As-octated rrcst.
Washington. Jan. 13. The nrmy re
organization bill will continue to en
gage tho attention of thu senate at
least during the first driys of the pres
ent week. The opinion Is quite gener
ally expressed among senators that tha
bill will be noted upon by the middle
of the week, and even the critics of
tho measure Join in this prediction.
Many phases of the question Involved
In tiro army bill remain to bo consid
ered, and tho general understanding Is
that there will still be no little discus
sion before the bill can be disposed of.
The speech of Senator Piatt, of Con
necticut, on Friday last, in defense ot
the bill on general principles, will call
for replies, and there nre also special
features which will require more or
less attention. Among these are Sen
ator Daniels' (intendment, concerning
the appointment of volunteers to otll
cers In the regular army: the ques
tion of the disposition of olllcers who
have held staff positions, and the pro
vision for the enlistment of Filipinos
in the American army. Tho disposal
of all these questions undoubtedly will
fill the first two or three days 6f thu
Senator Allison intends to call up the
executive, legislative and Judicial ap
propriation bill when the army bill Is
acted on, but whether this and other
appropriation bills to follow it shall
occupy the exclusive attention of the
senate, so long as they are on the cal
endar, is a question which has not yet
been absolutely determined. The pres
ent Indications are, however, that the
appropriation bills will bo considered
In advance of all other measures when
ever they are before the senate.
When there are no appropriation
bills to be taken up, the ship subsidy
bill will be discussed. There are still
numerous speeches to be made upon
this measure, and already thete Is
talk of night sessions for its considera
tion when It Is taken up, There Is
little in the legislative bill to arouse
discussion, but there Is a possibility
that senators hostile to the subsidy
hill may use tho appropriation, bill
for the purpose of delay.
Ntxt Saturday will bo devoted to
eulogies In memory of the late Sena
A programme- of miscellaneous mat
ters will occupy tho attention of the
house during the coining week. Tho
river and harbor bill, which was de
bated for three davs last week, will
consume one nnd possibly two days.
Although the bill was criticised very
severely during the debate last week,
It Is In no dancer of failure. Most of
the attacks came from members who
were disappointed In what the bill
grants to their localities, and the ac
tual opponents! of the measure will be
overwhelmed when tho final vote Is
leached. The District of Columbia!
committee, which, under the rules,
would be entitled to tomorrow, w'll
come up In the later week. After tho
latter bill Is disposed of, the bill lo
revise and codify the postal lawn will
bo taken ut. under a special order.
It will be followed bv the District of

latter In turn bv tho nostoulco appro

fessing to be confident of victory.
Colonel Quay, tho cholco of the Repub
lican caucus, is hero directing hla
candidacy and ho savs there is no
doubt of his election. He has given
his friends the assurance that he wilt
be elected on tho first ballot, and they
claim to have no reason to bollevo
otherwise. United States Senator

Insurance Commissioner Durhnm nre
with Colonel Quny, looking after the
details of his light.
William T. Creasy, of Columbia, the
house leader of the Democrats, hays
Quay cannot get a slnRlo Democratic
vote, nnd without the Democrats ho
cannot hope to be elected. Colonel
James M. Ouffey, of Pittsburg, will
be nominated for senator by tomor

charge of the anti-Quay Republican
headquarters, reached here tonight
from Philadelphia. With him were
Representatives Edwnrds nnd. Wilkin
son, of Bucks county, and other antl
Quayltes. Mr. VanValkenberg Issued a formal
statement In which ho says enough
Republican legislators, with the Demo
crats, are pledged to oppose Mr.
Quay's re-election, to accomplish that
result, and that . the antl-Quaylteu
have no reason to doubt that every
man will remain truo to his pledge.
"Under tho circumstances," he adds,
"I cannot sco how Mr. 'Quay can" be
elected on the first ballot, and If ho Is
not elected on the llrst ballot he cer
tainly cannot, ns he has admitted, b.i
elected at all."
Several legislators are 111 at their
homes, and neither side can tell with
accuracy how many of their followers
will be absent when the house and
senate vote separately Tuesday noon.
Thero Is not more than a score of

to ascertain its relative strength. Both
houses will reconvene tomorrow even

bo crowded with legislators and politi
cians. Colonel Quay's frlsndi are
planning a largo street parade for
Tuesday evening If he should bo elect

A conference of the anti-Quay re
publicans will bo held tomorrow af
ternoon to formulate a plan of action
when tho first ballot is taken. It H
expected that they will repeat their
practice of two years ago ot distribut
ing their votes among half a dozen
of "favorite sons."

burg, seems to be the choice of a large
malorlty of this element, and it is al
most certain that be will receive some
