Since the adjournment of the committee , I
linvo been unable to adjust my affairs so ns
to render it practicable lor me to act as

J'uturr Action on thu hll or Hill NCU-J ni l
\V\suixoTov , D. C. , July 5. So far as the
cctlon of the house is concerned , the silver
bill is in ornclly the same position this after
noon ns it was when the speaker laid It bo-
tore the bouso this morning. ' It is still upon
the speaker1 * table , subject to any variety of
motions for ita reference. But It Is in the
power of tbe friends of tbo measure ut any
time when there is u quorum present to
defeat Mr. Tracuy's motion to refer it to the
committee on banking and currency aud to
move Its reference to the comtnittoa on coin
age , weights und measures.
It was said after a IJouramont today that
the llcht over the reference would not bo
renewed tomorrow , and thai the enemies of
the measure will allow It to be referred as Us
fi lends desire , without further obstruction.
It la now admitted by thn anil-silver men
that the bill must ultimately go to the coin
age committee , anil it Is iho purpose to make
a strong light there. For tbe reason that the
bill was hot today ri'fencii to the committee
thcro wi.l be no meeting before iho house ,
and Ihero will bo nothing beloro the com-
n itlco lor Us action. 1'ho bilver men tbiuk
that thcio will bo no loss of L-round bv this
delay us il U extremelv doubiful in view of
thu number of the absentees whether they
could secure the presence of u voting quorum
in the committee. There has been some talk
of postponing from Thursday until Friday
Ihe order for a suspension dav. It Is argued
that the change witl insure the attendance
of n largo number f republicans.
f.oven telegrams to absent monibers , urging
tneir wpeedy return to Washington , und u
number of others are believed to be on the
v > uv. With this question tbu committee on
rules , or al least ibi ) democratic contingent ,
\vill probablv deal.

LOXDOX , July 5. The Dally News ( liberal ) ,
commenting on the elections , says : "Tbo
question now is not whether wo bhall win ,
but how many seats. "
Tbo Chronicle says : " \Vo nolo a beacon
llgbt in tbo election. The eight-hour ques
tion has claimed its lirst victim In Henry
Broadburst , who owes bis defeat , nut to
home rule , but to the minors' vote , llllng-
wortb almost succumbed to tbo same fate ,
Mr. Tolletto bavin ; reduced his majority to
the vanishing point. One of tbo striking
features is a marked sign of a decisive swing
of tbo pendulum in Scotland and Gladstonlan
borough gums , formerly Mr. Gladstone's
weokeitspot. In conversation recently Mr.
Uladsttnio said ho was of the opinion that
tbo liberals would got a majority of seventy ,
inclusive of these votes. "
The Standard says : "The liberal gains do
not Justify any complacency on tbo part of
the candid homo rulers. "If they do not do
much bettor during the week they will bo in
the minority. Noxvhero has there been as
humiliating reversals. The survival of the
decent liberals in unulminisbcd strength
must , bs mortifying to the people who
trcatcj them as doomed to extinction. "
The Times savs : "Yesterday's palls were
tolerably heavy and the light is gem ? to bo
un unuxuallv hard ono. A cause"of the
disparity of the gains of the two parties yes
terday is found in the fact that u largo pro
portion of the contests were In small
boroughs , where local personal popularity
tends to overbear the larcer motives of pub
lic policy. The swooping of tbo country bv
Mn Gladstone has not manifested Itself. The
main Issues hang upon me exertions of tbe
unionists in the next few days. Evorv
lingering Jealousy between the two wings of
the unionist party must bo quonehod. "
The Star s i.vs : "Ir the average of yester
day's gains is maintained it will give the
liberals a majority of 15'J In Iho next Parlia
ment , while there Is a practical certainty
that the average will bo greater. The defoa't
yesterday of Sir Thomas Sutherland , liberal
unionist , nt Grecr.ock , by John Bruce , liberal ,
Is tbe deathblow to the unionist cause in
Scotland , and Indicate } that tbo number of
English unionists will bn reduced. The radi
cal triumph at Wostham is a prelude to the
roll of London victories for the radicals. "

goes merrily on. Tbo trena of events today
shows no inclination of a cessation of hostil

the Immense coullict that is now being vragcd
between capital and labor , the logical inter

district and the Amalgunalcd association.
Considerable apprehension is felt , among
tli 030 dlrireclly interested that n

manner as the previous mcoliuf' .
This fear is based on the tenacity
of the two sides , nulwilliBtandiiu' the in
tense general anxiety for a settlement. The
committee uppointea to represent tbo Amiil-
camated associiition possess only limited
powers. They have received their Until in
structions anil will therefore insist upon the
adoption of the scale a ? originally presented
ov that organ'zition. Vet , If the manufac
turers show a dis | osition to treat with tbuir
workmen , their proposlt'on will receive con
sideration before there is a linul refusal or
acceptance. From tbe stand tnKen by the
ira'iufuctt rers since the lest conlorencc it Is

As soon ns the enemy had , on tbo night
