VICTORY ^OR WILSON. Democratic Caucus Adjourned Without Taking Action. BYNUM OFFERS A RESOLUTION, •'Ixed Next Friday n» the Day to Sttrrmdrr to tile Senate — Opposition Was So SlrniiR Be Withdrew It— Wilson and Crls-.i jrfade Strong Speeches In Favor of Con- 'NuuliiR the Fight. • WASHINGTON, Aug. 8. — Chairman Wil- «bn and his associate house tariff conferees scored a victory Tuesday when •the house Democratic caucus, called "with a view of terminating the tariff straggle by instructing or advising the liouse conferees, adjourned without taking any action. The effect of this was to leave the house conferees to proceed 4»s they see best nnd to show conspicuously that the effort to advise them had failed. The friends of Chairman Wilson •found they had the caucus so well in liaiid that they could have passed the Livingston resolution expressing confidence, but there was no desire on the part of the supporters of the conferees to take this action. Speaker Crisp and Chairman Wilson -expressed themselves as gratified with this conclusion nntl among the rank nnd file of the house the sentiment was general that the movement inaugurated to bring about an acceptance of the senate bill had resulted in materially strengthening the opposition to the senate bill. Speaker Crisp Was Present. The caucus was called to order by •Chairman Holrnan. TUP roll call disclosed the presence of H'6 members. 'Speaker Crisp sat among the members ou th<? floor of the house. Near him was Chairman Wilson and Representatives McMillen, Bynum nnd Springer, who It ad urged the caucus to gather in conference throughout the meeting. By an «rror the clerk read Mr. Springer's name at two different stages of the roll •call and great laughter was occasioned thereby. Enthusiasm was aronsed by •*heireading of a telegram announcing •the results of the Alabama elections. ' Then Mr. Bynuin offered the following •.resolutions: Whereas, House bill Jfo. 48-Jfi, for the deduction of taxation and to provide revenue for the government, passed the house on Feb. 1, and the senate on July 3, and was sent to conference on July 7 last; and, Whereas, The commercial interests of *lie country have been held in suspense .awaiting a final settlement of the qnes- 'eioii; and, Whereas, The people of the whole coun- •trry hnve, through the public press and by petitions and memorials to both houses of • congress, demanded u speedy decision, that the difficulties of the country may as •soon as possible be adjusted to the pro\posed change: anil, Wherens, The conferees appointed by the two houses to hoU a full and free conference over the disagreeing votes of the two houses have had the matter in dispute under consideration for one month, and hnve failed to come to any agreement whatever; and, Whereas. The house of representatives, •which under the constitution of tliu United States is clothed with the. exclusive power to originate bills raising revenue, nnd is therefore clothed with the right to pass upon all amendments proposed by the senate freely and without .restraint: and, Whereas, The nembers of the ho<:se of •representatives Imvo not availed themselves of an opportunity to consider said senate amendments, or any of them, •which right under parliamentary law is superior to all others; and, Whereas, It is currently believed said conferees are utiablt* to agree; therefore, Jjcit Kesolvert, First— That it is the sense of •this caucus that the Democratic conferees of the house and senate should meet in a spirit of liberality to the end that the two lioiises by mutual concessions may agree Tipon a measure which will meet the approval of each. Second — That this caucus stands ud- Ijournnd until S p, m. Friday the 10th inst. «t which time, in case no agreement has ! l>eeu reached, it shall reconvene to take •such further action in the premises as it may deem ucces»ery and appropriate and the chairman of the house caucus is hereby authorized and directed to invite tho Democratic senators to meet with tha Democrats of the house in joint caucus. In his explanatory statement, which •was a brief one, Mr. Bynum said, that although there had been a clamor from a part of the press for the house bill, he believed that the overwhelming sentiment of the country was for the best possible bill that could be agreed upon. For himself, he preferred the senate bill to no bill and as he interpreted the wish •of the party it was for a tariff bill and prompt action. Ho had no sympathy with the stand taken by some members that it would be better to retain the Mc- Kiuley bill than substitute the seiutte bill for it. WlUon tir«t>t«d With AppUune. Chairman Wilson of the waya nnd means committee rose be wus greeted •with enthusiastic applause. In bis quiet way ho Baid' be was glad to meet witb liis party colleagues, although be would jiot have selected this particular time for at caucus, llu commented upon it as an unfortunate circumstance tbat in a critical point in the negotiations of the con- ioreew this week and at the critical stage iol the confurenco as well, u movement ' had boon started to hold a caucus over : the head of tho conforuew, bo to speak.

I* the house Democrats would propose any plan likely to sustain the house bill ami assist its conferees he would welcome it. Livingston Proposed A Substitute. Livingston (Gn.) proposed a substitute for the Bynum resolution expressing the confidence of the house in it-s conferees and leaving the matter entirely in their hands. There followed a discussion o" the position held by the senate and the prospects of agreement. Breckftiridije of the ways and means committee rose to correct tho impression which might b? maintained, he said, if not correcto;!, that any ultimatum had been received by the house conferees and opposed by them. One of the Lonisana members argued that speedy action was necessary, that it was plain the senate would not yield and proceeded to pay a high tribute to Sena,- tor Mills ns a pioneer in tariff reform and said that this conspicuous tariff reformer hud personally assured him that it was the senate bill or nothing and unless the house soon recognized this all tariff legislation would fail. Cooper (Ind.) said senators around Mr. Mills had been trying to create the impression that nothing but the senate bill could pass, and this might have had its effect on Mr. Mills. During .this discussion Mr. Bynnm offered to amend his resolution to extend the time in which it was designed to bring about actioa by the conferees. Forcible Logic of Speaker Crisp. Something of a sensation was caused by the forging to the front of Speaker Crisp, when the general debate was well under way. The speech of the speaker was temperate, but very forcible, and its logic was so irresistible that at its conclusion Mr. Bynuin, the mover 'of the resolution, withdrew his motion. The speaker declared that it was and should be the purpose of the Democrats of the house, as Democrats, to redeem the pledges they had made to the people. The tariff bill had gone to conference to be met with the most determined opposition from the senate. He deprecated the passage of any resolution at this time. The senate had not withdrawn its support from the senate conferees, and the house should stand by its representatives. No vote of confidence was needed, while on the other hand the passage of Mr. Bynum's 'resolution would be a virtual surrender. He gave it as his opinion that the conferees could reach an agreement within a couple of weeks at the most, but they should not be harassed by a "back fire" from their own house. The house should be loyal to itself and its representatives. The proposition for a joint caucus of the Democrats of the senate and house in case of no agreement, the speaker characterized as an abandonment. "Pass a resolution to that effect and serve a notice on the senate that you want to meet them. If you do thut," said he, "you might as well hold the joint caucus today." Wilson Mailn No Reply, The speaker's speech/ was received with manifestation of approval and in conclusion he suggested, that the caucus should adjourn. Mr. Bynuin evidently realized that the caucus had slipped out of his hands. He therefore suggested that he would be glad to withdraw his resolution if Mr. Wilson would rise and say that an agreement was in sight. He paused for a reply. Mr. Wilson made no move. He gave no apparent recogni- tiou to Mr. Bynum. The action of the chairman excited no little comment, as it was taken to mean a declination to have any controversy with Mr. Bynum. Inquiries were made regarding the status of the negotiations upon sugar, coal and iron, but no deflnnite information was forthcoming. Speaker Crisp said that the senate bill was more highly protective in most of its schedules than the housa bill end that there were many points of differences to be settled and intimated that they were being settled but that was as much enlightenment as the inquiring Democrats obtained. Finally Mr. Bynum withdrew his resolution explaining Mint he was satisfied with the representations made and on motion of Speaker Crisp the caucus adjourned.

LONDON, Aug. 8.—A dispatch from Tieii-Tsiii says: A Chinese cruiser l\a* captured a Japanese trading bark awl taken her to Taku. All pilots have beni warned not to guide the Japanese vesssls or give them any information as to the waters and the coast. The rivers are falling steadily in consequence of tha drouth. It will soon be'impossible for the Japanese to make a raid up the Peiho toward Pekin. A copy of a Japanese edict issued since the declaration of war has been received by The Central News correspondent in Shanghai. It says the local authorities will be held responsible for the lives and property of the Chinese subjects remaining in the several districts. The Russian trade suffers too severely from the war to interfere. Russia's increments are watched very closely by Japan because of the report of a Russian-Chinese entente. The weather in the' China sea is so rough all the smaller vessels have been driven to shelter. The Japanese cruisers are supposed to be concentrated at Chemulpo. HEADQUARTERS FOR WAR NEWS. Offlcea Opened by Japs In Chicago to Furnish Accurate News of the War. CHICAGO, Aug. 8.—For the purpose of rendering all the aid possible to their government from this side of the water the Japanese of Chicago have formed an association and opened headquarters. The main object of the new organization is to furnish accurate news regarding the war now being waged between China and Japan. The Japanese legation at Washington IBS been notified of. the existence of the association, and has sent back word that will keep the little colony here posted on all phases of the warfare, so far as may be ascertained from the official reports and advices sent to the United States from Tokio. K. Saito, who used to be an officer in the Japanese navy, and U. Muvarvo, formerly of the Japanese army, left here several days ago to tender their services to their mother country. Both belong to prominent families. Think* Japan Will Win. TACOMA, Aug. H.—Captain W. R.
