Gorman Head Democratic Canon.
The democratic senatorial caurua, which
met at 11 thla morning, organised by elect
ing Senator Oorman to his old position aa
' tie made a brief speech In assuming the
chair and the conference then proceeded to
other bualnes. There were preaent
twenty-eight of the thirty-three demo
' The remaining time of the aeaslon waa
devoted largely to the discussion of tho
present situation In th senate and !ho
. necessity for democratic harmony and
uilty of action. There waa a gsneral feel
ing that the' '.csaeles caused by the re
tirement of de:"orratle senators from com
mittees which );i ve to deal with questions
before the piescLt railed session should be
ljed and It was civil Jed that the designa
tion of the membera of these committee
should be made by a steering committee to
be appointed by the chairman of the caucus,
but that their selection should later be rat
ified by the caucus,1
The steering committee for the past con
gress has numbered only seven members,
but Senator Oorman requeeted that the
number ahould be increased to nine, which
wss the number In the days of his previous
chairmanship, and this increase was de
Mr. Oorman will make hi selection of
members of this committee in time to have
a meeting tomorrow, when the question of
supplying the Vacancies on. the regular
committees of the senate will be taken up.
The caucus placed In the handa of the
steering committee authority to decide
for tbe democrats whether there should be
a general reorganization of the aenate com
mittees, or the mere filling of vacanclea on
those committees, ' which will deal with
pressing question during tbe extra session.
Thero Is no doubt, however, that the
democratic steering committee will insist
upon having sonje of the committees filled
for the reason that the democratic party
has lost quite heavily in some of the com
mittee which are in control of the present
business. They will' ask, for instance, that
the vacanclea 'in the committee on foreign
relatione be filled. Senator Bailey retired
from thla committee before the adjourn
ment of the last congress, and, by unan!
moua consent, Senator Clark of Montana
was appointed to the vacancy. It la ex
pected that the steering committee will
confirm thla action, and also will name a
successor to Senator Rawlina on the same
It Is thought necessary to have these Va
canclea filled immediately, aa that commit
tee will have to deal with the pending
treaties. They also will ask that the dem
ocratic vacancies on the committee on inter
oeeanlc canala caused by the retirement
from th senate of Messrs. Harris and
Turner shall be filled.
It also ta probable that they will ask that
the placea vacated, by Senators Vest and
Turner on tbe committee on commerce shall
be filled before tbe nomination of Dr. Crura
to be collector at the port of Charleston s
taken up by that committee. A similar de
mand probably will be made In all othr
caaea In which committees have charge of
nomlnationa over which there may be con
troversy. The caucua was In session for
almoat two houra.
Later In the day the steering committee
waa named. It consists of Senators Gor

Bacon (Ua.), Dubois (Idaho). Money (Miss ),
Blackburn (Ky.), Bailey (Tex.), and Till

complete to show that tbe insurgent leader
leaned strongly1 upon others for advice and
counsel, that there was serious opposition
to his authority among his own people and
that an attack on the Americana at Ma

outbreak of hostilities on February . 1899,
and that in the event that th struggle

not have been a republic, as titles of no

BUFFALO, N. Y., March 6. Despite the
fact that the police and the officials of the
district attorney's office bave declared re
peatedly and continue to 'assert that they
were really certain of the Identity of the
peraon who murdered Edwin L. Burdlck
and that, person was a woman, they still
hesitate to make a decisive move, i
Suggestions that might give a clue to the
motive for the murder have been eagerly
sought and sifted. Innumerable clues have
been followed. The police say many of
these have strengthened their suspicions
until they are almost positive of the identity
of the murderer, but material evidence :s
lacking. Other clues have either led to
nothing or resulted in more mystery.
The police are less communicative today
and there ta a widespread feeling that they
are at a standstill for the present at least.
In theory the police are in a position to
lay their handa upon the murderer at auy
moment, but besides their Indirect evidence
that would warrant an arrest they are no
nearer the solution of the mystery than
they were a . week ago, when the murder
Aii cd'cial in a position to know the exact
situation said: "In artusl evidence which

"No, not today nor tomorrow, nor the
"When do you expert an arrest?"
"When facts that would convince a Jury
are found to aubstant late our theory. We
must have strong evidence when we arrest
anybody, for we know that as soon as an
arrest la made lawyers are standing ready
to apply for a habeas corpus writ to rush
us Into court and make us disclose our esse
at the first Jump."
"Does suspicion still point to a woman?"
"It doea. It points to one who bsd to
meet expenses amounting to about 1100 a
month without any visible means to meet

"We will name no namea until it is writ

Perhaps the most interesting develop
ment in connection with the crime itself
1 the Interview given by Dr. Marcy, in
which he aays that the victim's bead waa
not only beaten to a puis, but that the
murderer carefully wrapped a quilt around
the murdered man's body to smother any
possible outcry. If tbe blows on the head
had not been fatal the victim certainly
would have smothered in the tight folds of
the quilt around his head and upper part
of the body.

Today Chief of Detectives Cusack made .
an Interesting admission regarding one of i
the details of tbe murder caae on which .
heretofore he haa not talked. Mr. Cusack
was asked if the authorities bad deter
mined, on the kind of weapon that was used
In committing the murder.
They have not." he replied. "I am
satisfied, hower, that the puter was not
used in committing tbe crime. A state
ment that the puter was used was made,
but I do not believe that was the Instru
ment. The name of a woman which has been
undor the searchlight of the authorities
for several days, it is ssld, has been
dropped. The material evidence which
they have been expecting has not been
found and they have been brought to bay
