Washington D. C March 29. It
transpired today that the Republioan
Insurgents against the omnibus state-
hood bill had held a moating last Sat-
urday to consider whether thoy would
count the fight as lost. Thlity-ono
wero present It was almost unani-
mously their opinion that defeat ought
not to ba admitted as yet but there
was some division of opinion as to how
th'o contest ought to bo carried on. A
low of thoso present counseled tbolm-
( i'o- t on or filibustering tac-
n means of forcing tho auto-
y of the Hojso to order a report
n tho conference. In tho opinion
of tho majority though no such action
oratfit to bo nken until it should be-
come apparent that tho conferees of
tho Homo aro purposely delaying a
SInco than tho fact that tho Demo-
crats aro considering tho advisability
of fillbuittring as a moans of winning
for tho House an opportunity to vote
sot only on tho sUtohood bill but on
tho employers' llnblllty and the ntl-
injunction bills has boconio known
and tho Republican irtsurgeaiW aro
disposed merely to assist! the Demo
crats so long as the filibuster Is
agaliut only tho statehood bill. It la
llkal ythat this course will bo pursued.
But whatovor it may be tho signifi-
cant fact is that the fight for state-
hood is by no means regarded as lost.
A great many think the Speaker at his
own time and In his own way will
direct tho House conferees to compro-
mise with tho Senate pn tho basis of
the Forakor amemtinent. But the.
Democrats and tho Republican Insur-
gents If they rotain thoir prosent
mood will not grant n long tlmo of
grace. Tho insurgents think thoy
may properly wait two weeks as be-
ing a reasonable tlmo to allow tho con-
foreos to consider tho forty amend
munts' that woro adopted boforo be-
ginning to filibuster. If then thoro
should be no indication that tho House
will havo an opportunity to voto on tho
question of statehood they would bo
Inclined to demonstrate that under
the rules a minority can bo trouble
some if impotent.
It wnB altogether probablo though
that tho Democrats will have their
fllibustor organlzod bofore then. The
suggestion that they try to forco tho
Republicans to give consideration to
the threo measures named as was
outlined In- a dispatch last night has
met with a groat deal of favor. Mr.
William lias said ho wouldi ask for a
eonferenco of the Domocrats within a
week and at that tlmo tho question
would bo settled.
