Washikston, March 19. - Tho senate committee oa foreiga relations have decidod to stand by tha agreemont reachad by the senate conferrees and to support the house Cuban resolutions as a substituto for the senate resolutiona on the same subjeot. The oommittee was not a unit oh the proposition, but 1c was oarried by a safe majority. The discussion in the committee indicated that most of the mombers preferred the sonate form of resolution, but there was placed against this argument that of expediency and this line of reasoning won the day. Among the objecdons made to the house declaxation were those basad upon grainmatical construction and the reforence to this eountry's commercial interest in the lettlement of the Cuban trouble. These bleniishes were generally admitted, but it WM contendod on the ottier hand that the house was wedded to its expression and that it might be even more difficult to get that body to accept the senate resolutions than it is pronas to be to get the onate to take tbose of the house. It was al-io contended that the principal objection in tho senate was not so much to the house resoiuiion as to any expression whatevor. Senator Shermaja, as chair-man of the cornmittee, was requosted to keep the Cuban queation as well to the front as possíble and to get a vote at the earliost practicable date.
