Dec. 15.—Under a. gloomy sky, in thefnidst of a drizzling rain, the friends and neighbors of the late Mrs. Xancy McKinley assembled in the First Methodist church yesterday to hear the last tribute paid to the memory of the president's mother.

Frisbie. and in the afternoon he was a visitor with Mrs, Bryan at the chamber of deputies and was admitted to the floor, the deputies all rising out of respect to the leader of the Democratic party in the United States. He was invited to speak, and talked of parliamentary institutions and of the progress which Mexico is making- on all hands. His reception in the chamber was enthusiastic.

Washington, Dec. 15.—The caucus of Democratic members of the house of representatives last night resulted in the adoption of resolutions defining the party policy On the questions of Cuba, finance and bankruptcy. The caucus was largelyattended, lOlof the!25 Democratic members being present, despite the stormy weather. Richardson of Tennessee acted as chairman, and Cum- 'mings of Xe\v York and Cowherd of Missouri a.cted as secretaries. Bailey of Texas took the initiative by presenting the following' series of resolutions: "Resolved, That it is the sense of this caucus that the Democratic members of the house of representatives ought to resist all efforts, direct or indirect, to retire the greenbacks and treasury notes; that we are opposed to and will resist all attempts to extend the privileges of national banks, or to reduce the taxes which they now pay; that we favor the early consideration and passage of the senate resolution recognizing that a condition of war ex- ista in the island of Cuba between the government of Spain and the Cuban people; that we favor the early enactment of a just and wise bankruptcy law." Bailey leads tlie DJscn.isioD. The first three features of the resolutions, on finance and Cuba, were considered separately, the discussion being vigorous and unanimously favorable. Bailey made the main speech, saying that Democratic members should take their position promptly against those financial movements now assuming formidable dimensions owing to the recommendations given to them by the president and secretary of the treasury. He also spoke for a clear-cut position in favor of the recognition of Cuban belligerency, as embodied in the -Morgan resolutions which passed the senate during the extra session. There was not a dissenting voice to Bailey's propositions, and the first three resolutions were carried by a unanimous vote, the result being received hearty cheers. Objection to tho FotirtH Feature. The fourth feature of the resolutions, declaring for a just and wise bankruptcy law, met with some opposition. DeArmond of Missouri argued that it was not expedient for the party to take a position favorable to a bankruptcy bill at this time. The resolution was supported by Bailey, Simms of Tennessee and Swanson of Virginia. The resolution finally prevailed by a large majority, although DeArmond and atwut half a dozen others registered their votes in opposition to this course. On motion of Maddox of Georgia arrangements were made for the usual congressional committee to conduct the congressional campaign of 1898. The caucus adjourned at 9 o'clock, having been in session just an hour and having accomplished its results with practical unanimity. NATIONAL LEGISLATIVE JDO1XGS. SAut i-o SUBMIT A MEASURE. It Will Deal wirh All the Monetary I&soen Xo* Under Discussion. Washington, Dec. 15.—-The determination of Secretary Gage to appear oa ' Thursday and to submit one general j financial bill instead of a number of I separate bills has brought out many ; i •spressions oif satisfaction. It had the ! effect of clearing up a situation which, j was becoming strained, and gave prom- ' Ise of an early report, to congress on ; financial bills. The understanding was • reached, as a result of a visit to the . Capitol of Solicitor of the Treasury Connell, representing Gage. He talked with a number of the Republican leaders, and it is understood was advised by Dingier and others that it would be desirable to embrace financial subjects in one general bill. Later the solicitor met Chairman Walker and other members of the committee on banking and currency and a general conference was held as to what should be done. The members of the committee canvassed the course they would take as to making an Immediate report to the house on the currency questions. It was decided that the first thing to he done was to report a bill embodying tlie three features recommended by the president, viz: A reduction of the tax on circulation to one-half ot one per cent.: the issuance of circulation up to the par value of bands deposited and the establishment of small banks in rural communities. While these will be embodied in the Gage plan, yet as they were specially advisee in the president's message 'it was felt to be advisable to give the'house the opportunity of acting on them at once, without waiting for the report on the Gage bill. . For these reasons the full committee w;Il be asked to report on the president's plan at once. The draft of a bill has been prepared by Brosius of Pennsylvania, and this was given to the solicitor of the treasury, who is to return it in time for action by the committee with such suggestions as the treasury authorities may wish to make. As to the comprehensive Gage bill, this and the monetary conference bill will be gone over with care during the holidays, and as a result of the better feeling created yesterday members of the banking and currency committee say there is no further doubt that action will be reported to the house soon after the holidays. National Board of Trade. Washington, Dec. 15.—One of the most important reports presented and adopted by the Xational Board of Trade, in session here, was that of Jonathan A. Lane, of Boston, on the reform of the consular service. The report advocated the extension of the civil service rules to cover the consular service to the end of securing practical business men in the service rather than purely political appointees.

Washington, Dec. 15.—The, senate was !r. sjosion j'ust ilric^u rulnules yesterday, adjournment being taken out of respect to President McKinley who was in attendance upon the funeral of his mother. The motion to adjourn was made bj Hoar. "All senators," said he, "are aware of the grear. calamity that has overtaken the chief magistrate ol the nation. He is today in attendance upon the funeral of his mother. Out of respect to him, and as an expression of sympathy -for him in his affliction, move that'the senate do now adjourn." Xo business beyond the introduction of bills and resolutions was transacted. Among the bills introduced was one by Kyle to change the immigration laws of the United States. He gave notice that at the proper time he would offer the bill as a substitute for that which is now pending tK-fore the senate. "In only one feature," said Kyle, "does my bill differ materially from the measure now before the senate. My bill provides that all immigrants shall have their test of education made by the United States consuls at the points nearest to their homes. It is a serious hardship for these people to cross the ocean with the prospect staring them in the face of failing in the test at the port of a foreign country. * » » The measure I have offered is to remedy what I regard as a defect in the measure now under consideration in the senate." The house after a session of about two hours adjourned out of .'sympathy for the president, whose mother was buried at Canton in the afternoon. The time of the session was devoted to the consideration of the legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill. It was decided to postpone the consideration of the item providing for -the maintenance of the civil service cc^mmission until after the other features of the bil! had been concluded. It was apparent from the remarks mad« that the entire subject will be exhau.suvely debated. There is seemingly no disposition to curtail the discussioia. .and it probably will not be concluded before ihe holiday recess. So absorbing is the topic that almost the entire time yesterday despite the fact that the consideration of the question had been technically postponed, was consumed in de- late upon It: hut the debate was devoid of sensational or even very interesting features. ... --.-'. George Washington Memorial Iguilding;. Washington. Dec. 15.—There was a meeting of prominent American women at the Hotel Kaleigh yesterday to discuss plans for a George Washington memorial building in connection with the proposed national university in this city. The meeting was secret, but it Is reported that the ladies expect to raise $250,000 for a memorial building to be devoted to the administrative offices of the university. ILLINOIS SOLONS AT WORK. Some Appropriations and Facetious Re- micrks Made iti the House. Springfield, Ills., Dec. 15.—The house yesterday passed the bill appropriating $60,000 to the soldiers' and saiiors' home at Quincy. The bill appropriating $1,000 to defray the expenses of the attorney general in defending the inheritance tax case pending in the United States supreme court, came up on third reading and was debated for an hour. Johnson (Dem.), of Whiteside, in a speech and others will start up, it is said, as against a waste of the public funds. Sharrock (Rep.) said; "While the gentleman CJoTmson] was talldng ) have been figuring, and find tha.t his twenty minutes speech has cost the people of Illinois $35. [Laughter.] Tei he insists on economy. It is the first time I have ever witnessed in the gen- erai assembly a gentleman on the opposite side delivering a speech that would bring tears to the eyes of an early rose potato for fear the Republican party was going to do something that would injure it in the future." [Laughter.] The bill failed of passage—66' to 3*. Selby gave notice that he would more a reconsideration. A resolution of respect to the late Assemblyman Samuel H. McClure was adopted. The senatorial reapportionment bill failed to put in an appearance, being still in the hands of the committee. Brigands Who Failed in That Attempted Hold-Up at Stein't Pass, N. M.
