A prominent Western Republican,
who Is hero loohlng nfter some Import

Etnndlng In tho lobby of Wtltard'a last
evening discussing tho political situa
tion In tho West
"Tho Republican party," said lie,
"will receive n great set-back this fall,
nnd It will bo duo to tho McKinlcy bill
nnd tho unsatisfactory appointments
made by Harrison. Tho handwriting
Is on tho wall, and this timo It will bo
tho farmer who will translate the truo
meaning of tho Inscription."
"In Iowa, Minnesota and California,"
ho continued, "tho chango of senti
ment Is growing, nnd tho people who
havo always voted tho Republican
ticket because of tho tariff, will be
found with Democratic ballots in their
Lands. Tho Senate, you will noto, has
lowered the duties on at least 200
articles, and I think tho Finance Com

to havo been paid to vote for Stanford
for Senator, are still lu existence, giv

In tho light of tho now avowed In
tention of Stanford's friends to Insist
upon his return to the Senate In '00, It
is not a matter of wonder that his ad
herents are anxiously questioning as to
whether or not the earthquake will
come. And the public, more particularly
in California, will continue to query
whether or not, In view of the possi
ble expose, Stanford will allow his
Dame to bo used.
"Yes." concluded tbespeaker, "there
will be lively times In California poli

"WOOL CONSUMERS PROTEST.

TUB dKXATR FOlt rilBK WOOL.
Tho Wool Consumers' Association of
I5o ton has sent to the Senate Finance
Committee n memorial asking for a
great reduction or the total abolition of
tho duty on wool. The memorial stys:
The system of excluding wool by more or
less prohibitory duties, Involving still
higher duties on woolens and worsteds, has
been tried at cre&t cost to the consumer,
with destructive restriction to the wool
insnufscturer, and without any compensa
ting advantages to tho wool grower. Un
der this system the wool grower has utterly
failed to supply tho raw wool In adequate
qualities or quantities, the high cost of for
eign wools has forced the manufacturers to
icsort to shoddy, hair and cotton to make
so-called woolens of, and the Importation
of goods mado by foreign manufacturers,
who havo the overwhelming advantage of
free selection ot 'aw material, has been
A frco selection from many varieties ot
wool Is essential lor the manufacture ot
tbo cloths required by the trnde and the ex

necessary supply of raw material as to reduce
rather than Increase the quantity of Ameri
can wool used. The natural advantages ot
Australia nod South America, for Instance,
In the production of wool nro so great as to
practically put wool tu tbo class ot things
which cannot bo produced In this country
under such conditions as to justify any duty
for protective purposes.
Ihe Interest of the consumers In this ease
rliould txj controlling In putting wool on the
free list, even more than In the case of te.
or coflee or tropical frufts, or any othor
article that cannot he produ:ed In the
L'nlttil States. Decides this, the woolen
manufacture cannot be pueceMtully de
veloped without the free selection of raw
material, and the prosperity awl activity of
the home manufacture of woolens Is the
first and essential element In Increasing the
ue ot and demand for American wool.
The high duties on wool hamper the manu
facturer and drive blm to tlie use not so
much of American wcol as of shoddy and
cotton, and Increase Ihe cost ot all woolen
and worsted cloths, and tnerebr illnimiii
Our laws practically forbid the Ameri
can to compete with the foreigner la the
purchase of certain otMntlal descriptions
ot wcol. Thus the heavy duties Increase
Ihe cost ot clothing, and help the forelguer
to imhI to this country vast quantities ot
woolen goods that, with frea wool and
moderate duties on the goods, might be
manufactured at home.
The proposed advance In tlte duties on
wools of the first and second classea directly
affects two of the leadline kind ot textiles,

If the wools now Imported In worsted

Hi is Carrying Things With a Vary
BLAINE'S OPPOSITION WILL NOT COUNT.
If thfl RepuWiean's Fail In One Way
They Will Rwsrt to Another.
Opposition in tho Senato.
The New York HerW today pub
lishes tho following dispatch from Its
Washington correspondent: Sugges
tively enough, tho man selected to put
tho finishing touches to the National
Klectlons bill was John I. Davenport
of Now York. Ho spent nil of yester
day with Mceers. Lodge and Howell,
giving thorn the benefit of his experi
ence as an election boss and doubtless
giving to tho bill that form and sub
stance which will tho moro strongly
recommend It to the Speaker's favor.
It Is n heroic romedy that Mr. Heed Is
seeking to apply, and If Davenport has
not succeeded In framing n moasuro
which wlll'cnablo Mr. Iteed's party to
rcgulalo and certify Its own returns, It
will bo strnngo Indeed.
The bill, It Is understood, will ue pre
sented to tho Hcpubllcan caucus of tho
House to bo held to morrow night. Mr.
Heed will bo there to explain It nod nd
vecato it, and Its acceptance by the
caucus Is certain to follow, tho Speak
er's will bolng now tho will of his party
In the House.
Nobody has as yet appeared seriously
to question It. "Mr. llulterworth pro
tests occasionally against some extreme
puceedlng, and Mr. Burrows Is now
and then in doubt as to the wisdom of
tho Speaker's course, hut In every In
stance the Speaker has triumphed In the
And so his confidence grows with
each new success. He plants himself
now wherever he wishes to stand, and
calls his party around him with the air
of a feudal lotd.
TO lift TAKKN L'l" THIS WK8K.
The House will probably be called
upon to proceed at once with the
tncHStite. It Is expected that tho Com
mittee on Utiles will bring In a reiolu
tlcn on Wednesday providing for lm
inuilate discussion and flxlne an early
day for taking the vote. How much
time will be allowed Is, of course, a
question. It is likely, however, that
Sstuidav will witness Ihe end.
That the bill will pass admits ot no
queMton. There are ItepubllcuDS In the
House from the Northwest and some
from the extreme West who doubt the
Rilvltabillty ot the proposed step; but
thelr's Is a passive opposition which
counts for nothing as against the efforts
of the Itcpublicans from the lUst and
South who are clamoring for legislation
designed hi Increase the party's repre
sentation from the South.
The Southern Republican members
are solidly for the bill, ami their atti
tude is carrying the proposition with
certain members from other parts of the
country who otherwise would hesitate
about Its adoption.
Since the design Is purely one of re
habilitating the party in the South, the
views of the parly's representatives
from that section are pressed, ot course,
by Mr. Heed, as possessing the greatest
weight in the determlnatloa ot the
quetlon. What la actually the fact,
namely, that these men are working
only In the interests of their own per
sonal fortunes, seems not to be con
sidered here at all. Their hope Is to
Insure, by Invoking in some way the
Federal power In their behalf, their
own return to Congress, As to what
effect the law may have elsewhere and
on otheis does not enter for a moment
Into their calculations.
J1LA1S.ES oriXIO-S SOT CO-SlDEB,EI.
There has len some specul ttion as
to whet effict Mr. HUlne's opposition to
this unasure may have. The beet optn
leu here now is that it will have no
iSectatall. Mr. Blaine's views are not
at-eebted end cannot be received as reo-
rexenling the Administration's attitude
in the prewUes. The President openly
favors the bill, as does Attorney-General
filler, who, in this matter, of alt the
members of the Cabinet, stands nearest
to the I'resideet They are actively up
norttng Kted, while fir Blaine, forced
by bis position to remain in the hack
ground, must coutent himself with a
mere expression of opinion.
Nothing Is plainer, therefore, than
that whatever induenee the Adiatnts
irsdon may have with Congress, will
be eserted not only to tecum the ps
teg of the Rational Elections mil, but
to spread abroad the interpretado of it
that it means a renewal of the strongest
means to retake the South in the inter eat
of the rtfpwMtfim party.
It was the opinion at one date that so
ohjeettonnble a measure could not be
nut through the Senate with the rules

rights of the minority affording so great
an opportunity fur debate and delay
No hose of defeating the hill these need

call for such a thing, hut, is thai event,

The Federal Klectlon bill, upon which
the House Hepubllcan caucus will no
doubt agree, says a Washington dis
patch In to day's New York HeraU, Is
to be a composite measure in'ended to
enlarge the powers of the supervisors
and prevent gerrymandering In the sev
eral States. The statement Is elsewhere
nisdr1 In these dispatches that some ot
the Hcpubllcan leaders In the Senate
were willing to pigeonhole the bill
when It reached that hotly If the Demo
crats would vote with them for the Silver
bill. Aside from the fact that such
a proposition from tho Hepubllcan
Senators must prove bitterly disap
pointing lo Speaker Heed and the more
radical members of his party In the
House. It demonstrates also that the
Senate Is rather lukewarm on tho sub
ject, nnd If left lo Itself would not bur
den Its calendar with legislation of this
character. Again the possibility of n.
long, wearisome session, lasting until
October, nnd even later, Is not pleasing
to n largo number of the Hepubllcans
whoso rc-clccltons are pending and who
would like to return home when the
legitimate work of Comrress shall have
ended, as It ought, within the noxt two
It Is well understood that the Senate
Democrats will avail themselves of
every parliamentary device to prevent
tho possneo of n ledcral Election bill.
There Is no rulo by which debate may
bo cut off In that IkkIv. and the Southern
men say they will talk until alter me
autumn elections, If necessary, to pre
vent consideration of the measure.
With a knowledge of these facts before
them, the Senate Itcpublicans are likely
lo piocced vUih great deliberation in the
mattrr. Senator 1'rye no doubt voiced
the sentiment of his party when he said,
a few days ago: "If we take up the bill
c must expect to sit here until the 4th
of Msrch next, If necessary. We shall
not In nil probability take It up unless
wo decide tu do this."
IIAHIIISOX WARNS qt'AV.
The l'res'dent, It Is ssld, I opposed
to both the Lodge Klectlon bill and the
Unwell Klectlon bill, and that he has
announced this opinion to no less a per
soijsbo than Senator Quay, says a dis
patch ftom this city In to day s Phila
delphia Jttcord. He realizes that the
adoption of such radical measures would
lead to a condition ot affairs In the
Sout?f that would make his .Administra
tion exceed I nalv unoleasaut. to say the
least, ami I for milder measures. The
Heed programme of force lias been dis
tasteful to him from the start, and the
mote It has developed the more have
widened the political relations betweeu
