WASHINGTON. D. C. . April ft i * r
Senator Gray and his friends have sud
denly lost the cheerful expressions they have
been wearing for the last few days , and are
now ns solemn us n grave yard. This chnngo
Is duo , It Is said , to the fact that the senator ,
who has been confidently expecting to bo
npjKinted chief Justice , has been Informed
from headquarters thnt ho hns no prospect
of receiving such nn honor , The Intimation
Is supposed to have como through Secretary
Bayard , who hns always been n patron of
Gray , nnd Is understood to hnvo pressed his
nnmo upon the president. Gray was en
dorsed by nearly all the democratic senators
nnd they wore sure ho would bo appointed.
The announcement tlmt he Is out of the field
rnuscs much surprise and Inquiry as to the
reasons , which no ono ECCIUS able to give.
He is eligible as to ago and ( pjallllcatlons ,
lives in the right locality , has
the strongest hind of political back
ing , nnd by his appointment the
president could kill two birds with ono stone ,
for his retirement from the senate would
Rlvo Mr. Bayard n chance.to return to that
body which Is said to be desired by him.
Some of Mr. Gray's intimate friends hint
that ho has been betrayed by people whoso
support ho was relying upon. Thuy make
mysterious threats as to possible disclosures
that will cause dismay in high places , but no
amount of questioning can draw from them
the exact cause of their anger. The specula
tion Is that Mr. Bayard Is somehow involved
In the mystery. There Is no doubt that Mr.
Grny'H ' visit to Delaware last week was made
in expectation of being appointed chief jus
tice. That ho communicated this expecta
tion to his friends there is also certain , and
he gave them to understand tlmt ho had rc-
rcccivcd assurance of his appointment. Ills
disappointment nnd chagrin is therefore
There seems to bo no doubt in thn minds
of the senators who have recommended Mr.
Gray that Minister Phclps is to bo chief Jus
tice , and It Is saUl that on Monday morning
Mr. Bayard informed Mr. Gray that such
would b"o the case. The nomination was ex
pected at the senate this afternoon , and will ,
It is thought , como in to-morrow. Although
Mr. Phclps has said that ho doe not want
the appointment , and that ho did not como
home from Europe with any such notion in
his head , it is nevertheless true that there
has been some communication between him
nnd his friends in this country since ho ar
rived on the subject. The nomination will
bo more'acceptable to the republican sena
tors than those on the democratic side , for
Mr. Phelps comes from u state In which no
vatPfl could ho imido for tlio democratic party
by his appointment to ( any o'llco and
is considered ono of the mugwump
clan. Ho is an old friend of Senator
Edmunds , "who studied law in his
office , and the latter being chairman of the
committee on Judiciary , to which the nomi
nation will be referred , can bo relied ii | > on to
report it favorably and push It to a continua
tion with all decent haste. The democratic
senators say that by the appointment of Mr.
Phclps a good opportunity to make political
capital will bo thrown away. They do not
deny his ability , but claim that he Is politi
cally not available , and that the president
might have selected for this office n man
whoso democracy at least was not doubtful.
Ono democratic senator remarked this after
noon that Mr. Phclps bore about the same
relation to the democratic party ns James
Knssoll Lowell , his predecessor , did to the
republican party , nnd was a "fair weather
and if the ticket suits mo voter. " The jus
tices of the supreme court are very much
pleased with the selection , and J think would
rather have Mr. Phclps than any other man.
Ho Is well known to all of them. They
recognize his ahillty , and ho will bo socially ,
ns well as ofllelally , welcomed Into the
supreme court circle.
iiiiiLinr.iiniu ) : : ON TIII : HAMi\\ni : .
The committee nlso reported adversely the
resolution over which Mr. Ulddleberger hns
made HO much fuss , providing for the consid
eration of the treaty in open session , and the
senator from Virginia Is therefore very much
exasperated. He claims that ho has received
pledges from the members of the committee
on foreign relations that they would report
his resolution favorably , and says that ho
has been betrayed. Hu Is particularly severe
toward Senator Sherman , and delivered an
( uldrcss In a cloak room to-day and expressed
his opinion of the senator from Ohio in
terms thnt could not bo published in any re
spectable newspaper. At once upon hearing
of the action of the committee , Mr. Ulddlo-
borgcr declared his Intention to vote against
the Dakota ndmisslon bill , and notified the
caucus committee ) that ho should vote with
the democrats hereafter on every
question that came up until the
committee on foreign relations treated
nlm with respect and rep'ortcdlhis resolution
favorably. As ho hns the tasting vote in tlio
tKHiPto nnd nt any tlmo can maku u tlu in that
body on political questions , tlioso announce
ments created considerable consternation on
the republican side , and a volunteer commit
tee , composed of senators who nro known to
bo friendly to Uiddlebergcr , attempted to
confer with him , but ho was not in a condi
tion to bo consulted , and the more ho talked
the madder ho got. The object of the sena
tor In having this treaty discussed In open
session Is to give him an opportunity to twist
the British lion's toll , which ho always does
whenever a chance is offered him , Ho claims
to bo the representative- the senate of the
OATiS : TllltlUTKXS Till ! DIlll'CT TAX DIIJ. .
Representative Gates of Alabama , who led
the nlllbustcrs nunlnst the direct tax bill ,
was asked this morning what ho intended to
do when the bill was taken up next Decem
ber. Ho replied that the filibusters who
ivcnt Into the .caucus did not make nny
pledges and would notlmvo done so under any
.iiireumBtanees. "When the direct tax bill
Comes up again , " ho mid. "wo will bn nt It It
VL have to flllibustcr to the end of the sos-
ion , The bill will never become n law If
there is any wny to prevent it , and If wo
cannot defeat It by votes wo can do so by
dllolory motions. When wo voted for the
postponement In the caucus v-o did not agree
that the bill should bccomo n Inxv or thnt any
time should bo set for a vote upon its pas
sage , and wo will never let it pass unless It
ib amended so as refund to the cot ton tax that
was paid by the people of the house during
the war. It is an outrage to compel tlioso
who loat In the rebelllr.n to pay the cost of
their subjugation. "

Invective on the Whole Klcc-
WASHINGTON , April 18. The land forfeit
ure bill went over as unfinished1 business ,
nnd nt 2 o'clock the Dakota bill came up and
Mr. Sherman took the floor in Its support.
Ho replied in nn impassioned manner to Mr.
Vest's allusion to unfair methods in the elec
tion of President Hayes. Ho claimed every
suspicion ever cast upon the integrity of that
proceeding had been repelled , and that It
stood In history as a matter in which the re
publican position could not bo Impeached.
Mr. Sherman showed by the vote in the sen
ate that the electoral commission bill was
not a republican but a democratic measure.
Twenty-six democrats had voted for it and
only twenty-one republicans ; while the votes
against it were fourteen republicans , ( In
cluding himself ) nnd one democrat , Mr.
Eaton , of Connecticut. The democrats were
therefore precluded from assallim ? the bill as
n partisan measure. lie declared
his full conviction that Hayes had
been fairly and legally elected , and
that if by some hocus pocus Tilden had been
inaugurated it would not have rendered
Hayes' title to the seat any the less legal.
He explained tlio incongruity of Packard
not getting the governorship of Louisiana by
showing tnnt that was subject to local laws
Jind decisions and declared his conviction
that Packard had been illegally deprived of
his onlce. The democratic party had not
only by fraud and violence sought to control
the presidential clostion , but It had actually
succeeded in pruning off of their ofllces the
duly elected governor and members of tlio
Then bo proceeded to read extracts from
a speech made In the late canvass -by Sena
tor Eustis , in which he declared It to bo the
determination of the white men of Louisiana
to solve the rate question without regard to
northern sentiment. If that , said Mr. Sher
man , was the desire and determination of the
white people of Louisiana the constitution
of the United States would have to bo
changed. When it was said there must be n
white man's government in Louisiana it
meant a republican government. Tlio
people of the south , instead of seeking
to win the colored people by kindness ,
had maintained n , system of domineering ,
crime and violence. He had felt called upon
to make this remark , partly to correct an
historical error into which many persons had
fallen and to show that not only did the re
turning board of Louisiana have sufllcient
evidence before them of fraud and violence
and outrage in the election of 1870 , but that
the present governor of that state and ono of
its senators had confessed all and more than
had evei'claimed by the returning board. If
ever anybody had any doubt of the election
of Hayes , that doubt had been removed by
the admission of the very men who had par
ticipated in the wrong of that day In
Mr. Sherman continued his defense of
Hayes' election nnd made a general arraign
ment of the authorities of the southern states
for intimidating negro vottrs. Ho was
listened to with profound attention.
Mr. Vest said ho denied the honesty nnd
legality of that election. The question ho
had asked about Packard and Hayes had not
been answered satisfactorily. Mr. "Kest re
ferred to tlio speech made in the senate by
Ithilno , in which Ulaino declared the
election of Hayes and of Packard were indissolubly -
dissolubly connected. Mr. Vest passed on to
the question of tlio Louisiana , returning
board , and asked why it had been that every
man connected with the returning board ,
from thu highest to the lowest , had been
rewarded with pfllco ? There wns no page
of nilmlnistrntian history that demanded
more explanation than that which now stared
him in the face. Ho ( Vest ) stood there to
vouch that whatever had been done in the
state of Louisiana on that occasion had been
done , not to bring about an unfair election ,
not to trample on the ballot of any human
being , but to defend themselves against out
rageous and criminal conspiracy against
their property at the hands of the men who
had if ono there for the singlclmd t > ole pur
pose of plunder.
Ho criticised sarcastically the opposite sen
timents expressed by Mr. Sherman in his
two recent speeches at Nashville , Tonn. , and
Springfield , ills. , and said In conclusion : "At
the risk oven of the senators contempt I un
dertake to say the American people never
Will be satisfied with the explanation made
to-day , but that like James G. Blalno
they have already como to the conclusion it
is Impossible ever for the ingenuity of the
senator from Ohio to explain why the vote of
Louisiana , as returned by the returning
board , was good for the purpose of giving
tlio electoral vote of Louisiana to Hayes for
the presidency , but was not good enough for
the purpose of giving it to Packard for the
governorship of the state. "
Mr. Sherman reiterated his previous state
ments , and said in reference to Packard that
President Hayes hnd no power of return
to the legislature. After the democrats had
Inaugurated their reign of tyranny to drive
Packard out , it was not in the power of the
president to recognize him without usur
pation. Mr. Sticrman defended the mem
bers of the returning board and declared
acaln the colored pcopla in the south must
bo protected in their rteht. "
