The Senate Adjourns
Washington, Aug. 10. The unex
pected decision of the senate to adjourn
yesterday is believed to have been due
to a torpedo thrown into the senate by

in shape of an amendment to the bank
circulation bill repealing the state bank
tax, thereby alarming senators who de
sire speedy action on the measure, nnd
who feared that tho amendment
might carry and thus cripple the na
tional bank system. They accordingly
permitted the adjournment.
