"Washington, May 27. A conference
was ordered on the &enate anti-trust bill.
The house then went iuto n, committee of
the whole (Mr. Grosvenor, of Ohio) in the
chair) on the tariff bill.
Mr. McKinley. of Ohio, asked that the
hou-u would proceed as promptly an pos
sible to act on the amendments offered oy
the committee on ways and means. Then
other pentleiuen who had substantial ben
efits to offer might be recognized.
Mr. McMillin, of Tennescee, declared
that the manner in which this bill was
being considered was fair neither to the
house nor to the taxpayers of the country.
Paragraph 407 of the bill was on motion of
Mr. McKinley amended so as to read as
Jdllows: Mats, rugs, screens, covers, has
socks, bedsides, art squares and other
portions of carpets or carpeting
made wholly or m part of wool not
otherwise provided for in this act shall be
subjected to the Kite of duty herein im
posed on carpetings of like character or
description. The paragraph imposing a
duty of ."50 ner cent ad valorem on manu
facturers ot silk not especially provided
for, was amended (on motion of Mr. Mc
Kinley) by a proviso that all such manu
factures of which Wool or the hair of the
camel, goat or other like animals is a com
ponent material shall be classified as man
iifactures of wool.
On motion of Mr. McKinley an amend
iineut was adopted imposing a duty of SO
per cent ad valorem on bone and horn out
tons, and a duty of 4 cents per line on but
ton measure of one-fortieth of one inch
per gross on pearl and shell buttons manu
factured or partly manufactured.
Mr. Onthwaite offered an amendment to
the drawback paragraph providing that
the rebute shall not be paid on tin used in
the transportation of petroleum or oil.
Mr. Outhwaite's amendment was rejected
JX) to 10.'. Messrs. Andervm of Kans;is,
Henderson of Iowa, Mason, Cheadle, Kelly,
Dunnelland Kerr, voted in the affirmative.
The drawback section was on motion of
Mr. McKinley amended so as to read as
Sect ion 24. That where imported mater
ials, on which duties have been paid, are
"used in the manufacture of articles manu
factured in the United States there shall
"be allowed on the exportation of such
articles a drawback equal in amount to the
iuties paid on the the materials used k"sl
percent of such duties; provided, that when
The articles exported are made in part from
domestic materials, the imported materials
or the parts of the articles made from such
materials, shall so appear in the completed
article, and that the quantity or measure
thereof may be ascertained. And provided
f urthi'r, that the drawback on any article
allowed under existing law '.hall" be con
tinued at the rate herein provided.. That
the imported material ued in the manu
facture of articles entitled to drawback
of customs duties when exported shall in
all cases be paid on such material used
and the amount of duties paid
thereon shall be ascertained. The
fact of the manufacture of such
articles in the United States and
their exportation therefrom shall be de
termined and the drawback given thereon
shall Ixj made to the manufacturer or ex
porter, to the agent of either or to the per
sons to whom such manufacturer, export
er or agent shall in writing order such
drawback paid under such regulations as
the secretary of the treasury shall pre
scribe. Mr. McKinley offered a long amendment
to the internal revenue clause (mainly of
an administrative character) which was
ordered to be entered in the Record and
went over until Monday.
This disposed of the committee's amend
ments. Mr. Hayne, of Pennsylvania, sent to tho
clerk's desk and had read a letter from
James Campbell, of Pittsburg, denying
the statements reflecting on his character
made a few days since by Messrs. liynuni,
of Indiana, and Wilson, of West Virginia.
Tho chair allowed the letter to go on
record, ruling that the gentleman who
presented it was responsible for it.
Mr. Funsion. of Kansas, offered as an
amendment to the metal schedule a pro
viso that silver ore and all other ores con
taining lead shall pay a duty of 1' j cents
per pound on the lead contained therein
according to sample and assay at the port
of entry. Mr. Funston earnestly advocated
the adoption of his amendment, declaring
that the provision of the bill would de
stroy the smelting interests of tho coun
try. Mr. Bynum then claime.d recognition on
a question of personal privilege relating to
tho Campbell letter. The chair was in
clined to think that the letter did not pre
sent a matter of personal prh ilege.
Then ensued a scene of uproar. Mr.
Bynum endeavored to proceed Out he was
shouted down by the Republican side.
Mr. Havne added to the confusion by ex
claiming at the top of his voice that a gen
tleman tor whom he had tho highest re
spect had been charged with forgery and
lie wanted to present the letter in his de
fense. Mi. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, shouted
out to tho chtiirmtui that it was not fair to
silence the man who had been publicly
attacked ami let the man speak w ho had j
iiiiiuu iiuiisi'ii sponsor in iiic smuuurui oiiu
stood in the shoes of a slanderer.
Amid intense confusion, excitement
laughter and shouts of "louder" Mr. Bayne
was heard to exclaim that Campbell was
the oqual in eery respect to the member
from Kentucky and Mr. Breckinridge to
assert that he had no doubt the member
from Pennsylvania took the man as his
Mr. Gannon, of Illinois, said that the
revenue bill was under consideration.
Mr. Mills There is a slander under con
sideration. Mr. Bjnum complained that the chair
1 ad stopped him and allowed the gentle
man from Pennsvlvannia to go on. The,
ihuir stated that he had not permitted tho
gentleman from Pennsylvania to proceed.
The chair had done the lest he could to
prevent the gentlemen from Pennsylvania
and Kentucky from using fhe language
they did. The chair liad done all he could
anrt was not responsible for the gentlemen
proceeding out of order.
Mr. Cannon made the point of order that
when the committee was acting under a
rule of the house it was not In order so
allow gentlemen to wash their dirty linen
against the rule of tlw houe. P-.oud
Democratic cheers and cries for order.
The chair -was of the opinion that it was
a question of personal privilege and over
ruled the point of order.
fr. "Mrfviiilv fhouirhf that, it was in
the interest of fair play to allow the gen-1
tleman lrom Indiana to proceed, no matter
what the rules might be.
After half an Hour's uproar Mr. Bynum
got the floor amid comparative quiet and
said that the Campbell atlidavit wtito tho
effect that Mr. Wilsou and he had said
that ?15 n month was enough for auy
glass-blower. In his district where he was
known the affidavit had not been circu
lated, but it has been circulated in Mr.
Wilson's district. He had telegraphed to j
tue "West Virginia papers denouncing
t amplell as a liar and perjurer. Since the
gentleman from Pennsylvania constituted '
himself the sewer through which the at-j
tack of Campbell mads its wsy-into the
Mr. Cheadle, of Indiana, made the point I
of order that the language Avar, out of or
der. The chair thought that the word
"sewer" in this connection was hardly par
liamentary. Mr. Bynum I withdraw it then and say
"conduit." Since the gentleman from
Pennyslvania was the conduit through
which the statement of Campbell found its
way in the Record; since the chair has said
that the way a citizen who may feel ag
grieved can get into the Record is by the
endorsement of a member of the house, I
have simply to say that I did the other
day, knowing full well the meaning of the
words and that I am responsible for them,
denounce Mr. Campbell as a liar and a per
jurer. I want to say.now that I accept and
am willing to believe that I have as great
confidence in the character of Mr.
Campbell as I have in the character of the
gentleman who makes -this attack upon
me. Excitement and uproar.
Mr. Cutcheon demanded that the words
be taken down, while Mr. Morgan, of
Mississippi, stood in front of the chair
man's desk and urged that both the letter
and the speech be stricken from the Record.
He feared that they might lead to trouble
outside of the house.
The offensive words were taken down
and reported from the clerk's desk.
Mr. Cutcheon moved that the committee
rise and report the words to the house for
its action. This was agreed to 120 to 09
and as Mr. Bayne rose to vote-
for the motion he was greeted with
jeering cries of "Bayne, Bayne, Bayne,"
from the Democraticside. The words hav
ing been reported to-the house Mr. Breck
inridge, of Kentucky, made the point of
order that there was nothing in the report
of the committee to show that there had
been no intervening business before their
utterance and the report to the house.
The sneaker overruled the point of order
on the ground that he must be governed
by the report made to him by the chair
man of the committee and he mustassurae
that the committee acted according to the
Mr. Breckinridge appealed from the de
cision. On motion of Mr. Struble, of Iowa,
the appeal was laid on the table yeas 120,
Mr. Briggs, of California, asked that the
recapitulation of names be dispensed with,
but Mr. Breckinridge objected, suggesting
that the members of tho house should
have time to cool down.
Mr. Cutcheon then offered the follow
ing: Resolved, That the member from .In
diana, Mr. "William D. Bynum, in the lan
guage used by him in committee of the
whole and taken down and reported to
the house and read at the clerks' desk, has
been guilty of a violation of the rules and
privileges of the house and merits the cen
sure of the house for the same.
Resolved, That the same William D.
Bynum be now brought to tho bar of the
house by the sergeant-at arms and there
censure of the house be administered by
Mr. Cutcheon demanded the previous
question amid suggestions of "gag law"
lrom the Democratic side.
Mr. Springer made the point of order
that before a resolution of ceusurecould be
adopted the speaker must decide that the
language was unparliamentary.
The speaker overruled the pointof order.
Mr. Ureenhalge, of Massachusetts, asked
unanimous consent that Mr. Bynum be
permitted to make an explanation, but
Mr. Martin, of Indiana, objected.
Mr. Springer made that the point of
order that the language was not unparlia
mentary. The speaker overruled the point,
Mr. Springer appealed and the appeal was
tabled yeas 121, nays OS.
Mr. Outhwaite. moved an adjournment
lost 03 to US.
The previous question was ordered on
the resolution yeas 120, nays 50.
Mr. Bland (who had voted in the affirm
ative) moved to reconsider. The speaker
declined to recognize the motion, declaring
it to be dilatory.
Then for a few moments there was
another scene of confusion, Mr. Bland de
claring that the speaker was trampling
upon tho rules of the house. The con
fusion, however, was slightly temporary.
Mr. Cutcheon contended that the. gen
tleman lrom Indiana had violated all par
liamentary usage by making a direct and
personal attick upon the gentleman from
Pennsylvania. The question was whether
it was parliamentary for one member
substantially to to denounce another as a
liar and a perjurer. The letter had only
been ruled legitimate on the idea that the
gentleman from Pennsylvania fathered
that letter and he was making an attack
which justified everything that had been
said by the gentleman from Indiana.
Democratic applause. As a judge in
this case he believed that the gentleman
from Indiana was bound to resent the in
Mr. Springer said that the majority in
adopting that resolution would seta prece
dent which would not rebound to its bene
fit. The language of the gentleman from
Indiana was justifiable, if not parlia
mentary. The gentleman from Pcnnsyl
vania had put himself out ot the pale of
honorable discussion when he imputed dis
honorable methods to members of the Dem
ocratic side of tho house. Applause.
Mr. Mills, of Texas, said that the gentle
man from Pennsylvania had given the first
offense and when he encountered the manly
and chivalrous defense of the gentleman
he had attacked he cried like a baby.

as it deserved to be characterized and it
was for that that the gentleman from
Michigan was made tho public prosecutor
in the name of the honor and dignity of
the house. Democratic applause and Re
Mr. McKinley asked what was the ques
tion presented? Was the language which
had ueen read unparliamentary and in
violation of the rules of the house and the
decorum of parliamentary debate? That
was the only question upon which mem
bers were to vote, not as partisans but as
judges. Did any one doubt that tho words
were unparliamentary and in violation of
the rules of the house? Some gentlemen
said that the words were justified. No
words were justified in violation of the

THE GBANT STATUE.-
The Appropriation Increased to $300,000
and the Bill Passes.
Washington, May 17. The bills on the
calendar were taken up and the following
(among others) were passed: To pay to
the assignees of John Roach 33,840 for
extra work on the monitor Puritan and
$20,274 for the care of the monitor Roa
noke; the senate bill to pay $20,000 to the
'daughters of Joseph Henry, late secretary
of the Smithsonian institute, in compensa
tion of his public services.
The senate bill appropriating $100,000 for
a bronze equestrian statue of General
Ulysses S. Grant, in the city of Washing
ton, having been reached on the
calendar, Mr. Hoar suggested that an
equesterian statue was hardly the proper
mode of doing honor to General Grant,
Equesterian statutes almost encumbered
the city of "Washington. He had hoped
that when the great bridge across the Po
tomac at Arlington (crossing the boundary
line between the two sections of the coun
try) was erected, as it would be, a suitable
memorial would be placed upon it of Lin
coln and Grant as an emblem of the united
country which they had helped to save and
to preserve united and free.
Mr. Edmunds said that whatever he
might believe Tipon the subject of
public buildings he believed that
some memorial should be raised to the
memory of General Grant, that great and
just man. He therefore hoped that how
ever inadequate in the long and final sense
this equestrian statue might be and -however
much congress might desire by and
by on some memorial bridge or arch to
pay further respect to his memory, this
simple thing would be done now. He
would suggest, however, to omit the word
"equestrian" and to let the bill provide
simply for a monment and statue. He
made that motion and it was agreed to.
The bill was further amended by increas
ing the appropriation to $300,000 and so
amended the bill passed.

NATIONAL ELECTION MEASURES.
Washington, May 17. The committee

to determine upon the respective merits of
the national election law proposed by Mr.
Lodge and thebill presented by Mr. Howell
to extend the supervisory system held a
meeting this morning and finally decided
to report the caucus favorably upon upon
both measures. The majority in the com

The Sugar Clause of the Tariff Bill Par
Washington, May 17. Tho ways and
means committee this morning gave a gen
eral hearing to the spirit vinegar men who
submitted the draft of a modification of
the existing laws approved by the commis
sioner of internal revenue which imposes a
light tax on the spirit used in vinegar mak
ing with a view to guarding against illicit
distilling. The committee lias not yet
taken action on the matter.
Heavy pressure is being brought to bear
upon the committee by individual mem
bers to secure modifications of schedules in
the bill. The hosiery men through Reper
sentative Harmer, are trying to have some
changes made in the language of
tho hosiery sections; the Massachusetts
Granite company is seeking an additional
degree of protection and the glove impor
ters and lead ore refining interests are still
working to secure relief, but perhaps the
greatest pressure is being brought to bear
by the conflicting sugar interest. Repre

Berlin, May 17. Short as the emperor's
utterances at Konigsberg were, they
sufficed to irritate the Russian government
and dispel all delusions regarding the pos
sibility of a renewal of the entente with
"I shall not allow," said the emperor,
"my provinces here in the least to be

that my strength is that of a rock."
The Novoo Vreniya holds that the words
of the emperor overstepped proper bounds
and that they ought to be officially
Within the official circles here the em
peror's deliverance caused no surprise in
view of advices from Paris pointing to
closer relations between the French and
Russian foreign offices. Another pregnant
fact is Chancellor Von Caprivi's an
nounced design to place one of the two new
army corps on the Russian frontier.
The emperor did not without forethought
say yesterday that if obliged to draw the
sword those who troubled peace would find
the German sword as heavy as they were
twenty years ago. Both speeches contain
a veiled but emphatic declaration of the
solidity of the dreibund as to its vigi
lance against the common enemy.
Yesterday the army commission came
up in the reichstag. General Von Caprivi
intends to hasten the passaee of the

English Throwing Stones at the Russian
London, May 17. The Universal Review
of London publishes an address to the czar
remonstrating against the outrages upon
Russian exiles in Siberia. The remon
strance is signed by 2M persons, including
members of tho house of lords and house
of commonSj litterateurs, arttsts and other
pcr&ons of distinction.
Mr. Gladstone has written a letter in
connection with this matter in which he
says that the government of Russia would

MINISTER TERRELL INVOLVED WITH
London, May 17. The opposition of
United Suites Minister Terrell to the ac
tion of the anti-slavery conference at Brus
sels, confirming the right of the Congo
state to impose an import, tax has aroused
the government press to fury and precipi
tated a discussion leading far behind the
limits of the main question. Not only is
the whole tariff system of the United
States attacked, but the events which led
up to the American rebellion are brought
into requisition as condusive arguments
against what the journals are pleased to
term the unbecoming attitude of the
United States government through its rep
resentatives. Mr. Terrell's opposition and
his refusal to recede from it will probably
cause a modification of the action of the
