Nashume, TrNN, Feb. 1. Tho Amcr
can to- u i will contain a lengthy Inter
view with cx-Prceldcnt Cleveland, held by
Mr. E. W. Cannack, editor of that paper,
In tho courso ot which occurs tho following!
Of course, tho tariff question camo up In
tho courso of conversation. I said to Mr.
Cleveland that, as no other man had beon
kept so closely lu contact with tho tariff
reform sentiment as he, no other, perhaps,
could speak with moro knowledge as to the
progress It was making in tho minds of tho
sum: or stttcci.
Mr. Cleveland said that he felt moro con
fident than ever before ot tho triumph ot
tho tariff reform ou the lines marked out
by the Democratic party. Democratic de
feat In tho last Presidential campaign, In
stead of discouraging, had only strength
ened tbo purpose and Increased the energy
of tariff reformers, nnd confidence In tho
result of tho noxt contest appeared to grow,
as signs of dissensions appeared In Protcc
tlonist ranks. Jle thought that ono of tho
most serious troubles tho Republican party
would have to encounter was tho revolt ot
the New England manufacturers against
tho Republican policy, whllo sovcrat North
western Stales were now held doubtfully In
tho Republican column only by reason of
Titn in oom-sntiiT issue.
Tho bloody shirt, he said, had done
valiant service In the last campalgu In
counteracting tho effect of tariff reform
arguments, and unless that could again
save the Republican party from defeat
nothing else could. Tho Ilcpubllcans ot
tho Now England and Northwestern States
who havo been hoping for a re
duction of tariff or tariff duties
at tho hands of tho Republican
party wero bound to realize sooner o-later
that this hope Is vain. What then would
they do about It? Continue the folly of
robbing themselves bv supporting tho Re
publican parly and of obsti noting and de
feating tho very reform they aro clamorlii"
"Theso people," said Mr. Cleveland,
"arc ahead beginning to realize that tho
party which persists In a course hostile to
their Ii tercsts Is their enemy, aud that the
patty which is fighting to give them what
tbcv wart Is their friend, no matter If it
does eonlalii some Confederate brigadiers."
UU'lIllle INS AM) THE TAllIFt'.
Mr. Cleveland said that ho had thought
the Republican party might make 6omc
effort to conciliate tho low tariff sentiment
In Its own ranks, but tho Indications now
appcand to .bo to tbo contrary. Tho
party lcadeis evidently thought It wiser
to stand by tho contract with tho
protected! manufacturers thau to cndangoi
tho solidity of tho rich and powerful com
bination which had helped it so often to
lctoiyby departlug a hair's breath from
the letter of tho bond. Tho Republican
patty, ho said, aio driving straight upon
therocks, and could not chango lis courso.
In tho course of th'o conversation the
question of "ballot reform" was touched
upon and Mr. Cleveland luterrogatcd me
In legard totho details of tho Dortch law
in Tennessee. Ho is Intensely Interested
In this question and said It was one ot tho
most Important reforms that had been at
tempted forj ears and that Its importance
was becoming greater as tho assaults upon
tho purity of the ballot became fiercer.
I asked blm If ho thought the cause of
tariff reform would profit by such legisla
tion. PltOUT TO 1IOSE1T O0 EltVVCNT.
"Honest government would profit by
It," said Mr. Cleveland, "and so would
every worthy cause which depends upon
honest nnd not upou corrupt methods for
success, 'lho franchise Is not debauched
In tho Interest of good laws and honest
government. It Is by those who havo spe
cial Interests to subservo nt tho peo
plo's expense, nnd not by thoso
whose Interests aro In common
with the masses, that tho ballot Is courted.
There aro no rich and powerful corporations
interested in buying (loatcis or coercing
employes to vote for a reformation of our
tariff laws, lho powers of corruption aro
cmplo)cd upon the other side, and tariff
reform, as nil other reforms, must depend
upon the unbought suffrago ot tho people
If tho people aro capable of self-government,
and aio to remain so; thero can't bo

Tho galleries of tho House yestorday did
not picscut the jammed appearance notice
able the preceding few days. Tho Demo
ocrats, however, persisted in their tactics
and obstructed, as far as possible, all legis
lative proceedings. During the reading ot
tho journal, when It camo to the words
"yeas and uays, etc.," Mr McMillan do
manded that tho names be read. It was so
ordered by the Speaker.
Mr. Springer was ou his feet when the
first opportunity was offered with a motion
lo correct tho Journal. This was opposed
by a motion from Mr. MrKlnley favoring
For an hour or more tho samo tactics that
havo characterized the dellboiatlous ot the
House for threo dajs wero resorted to.
Thero were repeated motions to adjourn by
tho gentleman from Illinois, Mr. Springer,
but without any beneficial results to tho
Democrats. After the motion to adjourn
was defeated, by a vote of 133 jeas to 158
najs, thero was moro parleying over tho
adoption of tho Journal as read. On this
motion many of tho Congressmen declined
to vote; but Speaker ltccd declared that
thero was a constitutional quorum present,
aud announced tho motion as carried by a
vote of 101 j cas to no nays.
Another motion to adjourn was Intro
duced by Mr. Springer. Tho Chair de
clined to rccogulzo him, but Mr. Ilolman
demanded that thojeas and uajs bo called,
and tho pcrfoimauco notlcctblo ou tho first
ballot was repeated.
A motion mado by Mr. Blaud that tho
sick members bo excused, as their prcseuco
was not necessary to a quorum, accoi ding
to Mr. Reed's Ideas, caused considerable
amusement. Thero was moro fun ahead
when Mr. Powell called up thoSmltk-Jack-6ou
election caso from tho Fourth West
Virginia District for consideration. It was
stated that In a recent Republican caucus
election cases wero to bo disposed of uudor
general parliamentary law In oidcrto In
crease tho Republican majority, but Mr.
McKlnley declared that there was no dis
cussion whatever lu tho caucus of that or
any other election ease; neither had thero

matter fairly for each of the four cities
contesting. Ho dcllned to express bis per
sonal choice, but said ho regarded the ques
tion ot holding the fair as much nioio Im
portance than tho question of site. Ho
holds that tho benefits to bo derived from
the fair aro too great to booicicstlmatcd.
Referring to tho shoitness of the time In
which to get read-, ho mentioned the fact
that New Yoik builds from twenty to
thirty miles of houses of all kinds, styles
aud sizes, and that tho other cities do com
paratively as well. With such a record as
this, ho thinks that thero ought to bono
trouble on tho score of time.

Mr. Gaston has thousands of names to n

of the agitation of the question In the Sen

it. General l'.utlcr's bill possibly might
havo spruntr from race hatred, but llko
many other contrivances of man, God
would turn It to tho right direction. Hit
should pas, the negro and his raco for
hundreds ot generations In Africa and this
country would be the gtlncrs. Ho saw no
deslro to force tho negiocs from thn
country In Mr. Butler's bill.
There would be no nccessltv to force a
single soul. If tho bill should pass there
would be thousands of applications for Its
benefits more than could lccclvo It. If a
commltteo of Congress could Investigate
the correspondence nnd experiences of
members oi tho Colonization Society and
Its officers, the fact could bo demonstrated
that $10,000,000 per year could bo wisely
and economically spent In aid of emigra
