The Republican Senatorial Caucus
Outlines a Method- to Ac
Business to be Hxpedited by Long Sessions
The Election Bill Oiily Inciden
Limitation of Debate Not Considered
Uecessary Senator Ingalls Asks
Some Consideration For the
Calendar Messrs. Vest and
Turpie on the Tariff
Washington, July 28. A caucus of Re
publican senators was called for tonight to
consider the election bill and the question
of changing the rules of the senate
so as to expedite tho transaction
The caucus was attended by about thirty
members. Senator Sherman presided and
was made the official medium of communi
cation to the press. His statement was
that the caucus had determined to fix the
hour of the meeting of tho senate
after tomorrow and until further
orders at 10 o'clock and continue it as long
as possible, no hour for adjournment being
fixed, the tariff bill at 1 to be considered
for Beveral days and then displaced for a
time nt least by the river and harbor bill,
r Prom senators it was learned that the
'object of this policy is to endeavor to force
the Democrats to show their purpose to
ward tho bill, whether or not it is to bo
one of delay. The Republicans hope
by this movement to tire out the
Democrats, who are to be left to do
all tho talking except when it Is con
sidered necessary to answer some point
made in a speech on that side. The only
other measures to be considered are tho
appropriation bills. Tho bill to transfer
the revenae marine from the treasury to
tho navy department, which has occupied
tho morning hours for several days past,
under the arrangement agreed upon to
nicht will be postponed until after tho
tariff bill is out of the way.
According to all reports, the election
bill, as prepared by the committe on
privileges and elections, was discussed
only incidentally. Messrs. Hoar and
Spooner, it is said, spoke of the necessity
of taking action on that subject,
but nothing was done. In all that
was said by senators, there was no
announcement by any of them or not they
would support the bill in the senate.
Upon the subject of the proposed rule to
limit debate the general expression of opin
ion is said to have been that as jet the
Democrats have not manifested a purpose
to filibuster and the necessity for the en
forcement of such a rule has not yet arisen.
WANTS SOMETHING DONE

I Down to "Work.
Washington, July 28. The senate bill
to pension all the surviving officers and
men of Powell's battalion of the Missouri
mounted volunteers raised during the war
with Mexico was reported, explained by
Mr. Cockrell and passed.
Mr. Aldrich offered a resolution fixing
the daily hour of meeting at 11 a. m.
Mr. Ingalls suggested an understanding
that the business "of the morning hour
bhall be considered closed at 1 o'clock.
Mr. Allison did not wish it to be implied
that the senate would devote two hours a
day to morning business.
Mr. Ingalk, slid thnt he did wish just
buch action. IIo remarked that as soon as
the tariff bill, tho appropriation bills and
the election bill were passed congress
would undoubtedly adjourn promptly.
There would be no waiting on the "order
of their going" but they should "goat
once." Therefore whatever was to be
done between now and the time of adjourn
ment in the consideration of measures on
tho calendar would have to be done in the
morning hour. He respectfully submittod
that there were several hundred bills on
tho calendar that were entitled to con
sideration that had been reported from
committee and that ought to receive the
attention of the senate some time. So far
ns he was concerned he should by his vote
whenever opportunity offered, proceed to
the consideration of bills on the calendar
for two hours after the senate met, believ
ing that that would be the best way to
provide that general business would
jiave anvt:onsideration at all.
Mr. Cockrell asked what was the use of
tho senate passing bills when the dis
tinguished gentlemen in charge of tho
house did not give any attention to them.
There were now on the calendar of the
house hundreds and hundreds of
bills p.issed by the senate and no
attention was paid to them. Among
them was the bill refunding the direct
tax; among them were also two bills re
cently parsed and regarded on the other
side of the chamber as very important
measures (the shipping bills) and they
were being given over to "sleep the sleep
that knows no waking "
jtfr. Hnwley did not quite agree with
Mi. Cockrell. He wanted his own ammu
nition to be in order so that he could go
liOnie with a clear record. As to what
yas done elsewhere that was noi his direct
The resolution as to meeting at 11 was
.Vigreed to with the understanding that the
senate sdiould adjourn at 5.
Mr. Aldrich moved to proceed to the
consideration of the tariff bill. The motion
was antagonized by a motion by Mr. In
galls to proceed to the consideration of the
house bill for the transfer of tho revenue
marine to the navy department and the
later motion was agreed to yeas 2G, nays
25. The Republican senators voting m
the affirmative were Messrs. Cameron. In
galls. Manderson and Spooner. Mr. Cock
rell was the oulv Democratic senator who
voted m the negative. So the senate re
Mimed consideration of the bill for the
transfer of the revenue marine from the
treasurv department to the naval estab
lishment and Mr. Cockrell coutinued his
argument in opposition to it.
Mr. Grav moved to continue the consid
eration of the revenue marine bill.
Mr. Frve said that the friends of the rev
enue bill had occupied but an hour and a
half upon it, its enemies (a small minor
ity) all the rest of the time. It was as evi
dent to the senate as if the purpo-e had
been announced that the time had been oc
cupied for the purpose of preventing a vote
on the measure. That only indicated what
hebelieed m. the necessity of a previous
question in the senate, of some way tostop
debate, of some way to prevent a seuitor
from getting tip every morning for
three or four mornings in suc
cession and reading from the
report of a clerk in the "treasury depart
ment. Why should not a vote be taken on
the tariff bill If there is a majority of
tlie senate in favor of it, why should it not
be permitted to say so? The senator from
Ohio tMr. Sherman) had made four
speeches upon the bill and in the course of
tnem bad read the same identical articles
which the senator from Missouri had oc
cupied the last three mornings in reading.
He did not think that the friends
of the measure should be censured. He
thought it reasonable that a vote should
be taken on it. The time had not been
taken up by the friends of the measure,
but had been taken up purposely in filibus
tering against it.
Mr. Cockrell pronounced Mr. Frye's
statement in reference to himself as with
out a particle of foundation. When that
senator said, or intimated, that he (Mr.
Cockrell) had consumed time in filibuster
ing, he intimated that which he knew
nothing about; for it was not true.
The question was taken on Mr. Gray's
motion and it was rejected yeas 14, nays
The tariff bill was then taken up and
Mr. Vest addressed the senate in opposi
tion to it. The advocates of high tariff
taxation, he said, were confronted by a
great peril. For years the farmers had
been told that the home market
was all they needed, and that
the foreign market was a bagatelle,
almost worthless. Now e. great change
had come. The depression In agricultural
interests and the demands of tho farmers
for something besides lying atattatica and
frothy declamations had caused President
Harrison and Mr. Blaine to urge upon con
gress legislation for subsidies for steam
ships and for reciprocity treaties -with the
South American states in order to obtain a
foreign market for American products.
Very little was heard now of the home mar
ket, but a great deal of the South American
market and of the racally methods by
which Englaud had robbed the United.
States of valuable trade.
Mr. Blaine now deprecated the putting
of raw sugar on the free list or of Increas
ing the duties on wool and suggested that
the duties on sugar and wool should be
utilized to secure free trade with thoSouth
American states. So that at least tho pro
tectionists had been driven from their
pretentious humbug about the home
market, and were forced to adopt the
principle of free commercial intercourse
which they had so long opposed and
derided. The high priests of protection
were burning incense on the altars of free
trade and were yelling for
reciprocity treaties, subsidies, sub
sidies to steam and sailing vessels,
pan-American conventions, anything to
bring about free trade with the South
American states so as to enlarge the for
eign market for American products.
The pending bill, he declared, was to re
pa the mill owners their contributions to
the campaign fund of the Republican
party during the presidential campaign,
and as the planters of the south were
Democrats and the negroes were regarded
by the Republican managers as mere
political chattels, who could contribute
nothing, tho duties on northern
manufacturers were increased while the
duty on rice was diminished. The farmer
who could not see that ho was the victim
under the high tariff system was hopelessly
partisan. The farmor furnished nearly
four-fifths of tho exports of the country,
and if the foreign market was unfriendly
or was absolutely closed against him, he
would have to keep his surplus products
at homo and help to lower prices by glut
ting the market. He asserted that the
consumers of tho United States wero being
systematically plundered under the pre
tense of protection to home industries.
No further concealment was possible. Tho
truth was at last revealed. The manu
facturers, who were persistentlv asking
higher duties to exclude foreign csmpeti
tion, were availing themselves of tho
monopoly given by the exclusive tariff to
charge the people of this country from 20
to 70 per cent nigher for their goods than
they could sell the same articles for in the
unprotected markets of the world. It was
no longer protection, but pure, siniplo,
naked plunder. It might be that the peo
ple of the United States would submit to
that system. Wrongs crystalized by
custom and panoplied with privilege and
power, had often become hoary with age.
The bastilo had frowned in dark
and .0111 bre terror upon tho popu
lace of Paris, while king and courtier,
philosopher and patriot passed away. It
seemed eternal; out at last it fell and the
nightmare of ages ended. Americans
boasted of their free institutions, of liberty
and equality, but who, he asked, could call
himself a free man, save in mockery, when
by force of law, the proceeds of his life and
labor were unjustly taken to enrich an
other? The struggle for human rights was
not ended, nor could it be until the une
qual and the unjust system of taxation
which now (with a mask of protection)
rode, like a booted and spurred highway
man, over the country and trampled under
foot an enraged people.
Mr. Turpie addressed the senate upon
Mr. Mcpherson's resolution to recommit
the bill with instructions to report a bill 1
to reduce the revenue anu to equalize
duties of imports in which the average ad
valorem rate of duty on all dutiable arti
cles shall not exceed the average ad valo
rem war tariff rate of 1804. He declared
himself in favor of a recommittal of tho
bill and said that he would vote for it. He
would even vote for its indefinite post
ponement. He would support any line of
policy calculated to defeat or to delay its
enactment. He thought that if instruc
tions were to be given in a line with the
opinion of that great leader of the
people who polled a majority of tho vote of
the people lor his re-election, the scheme
would be the imposition of a lower duty
on things in general use and high rates on
articles of luxury aud refinement.thc total
sum of the levy not to exceed the necessary
expenses of tho government and the inter
est on tho national debt.
The question was taken on the motion to
recommit and it was defeated by a strict
The reading of tho bill by paragraphs for
amendment was beguu the first schedule
being that as to chemicaK oils and paints.
Mr McPherson moved to reduce tho duty
on acetic or pyroligneous acid. The voie
was yeas lf,nays 23 uo quorum.
Mr. Plumb offered a resolution, which
was agreed to, calling on the secretary of
war for information as to the rules estab
lished for admissions to soldiers homes, if
such admissions are based wholly or in
part on the amount of pension and whether
exceptions to those rules have been made
aud m what cases and for what reasons.
The senate bill appropriating $50,000 for
a public building at Sheboygan. Wis., was
reported and placed in the calendar.
The senate then adjourned.

THE PACKAGE CONFEREES.
Washington, July 28. The conferees on
the original package bill have been ap
pointed. On the part of the senate thev
are Wilson of Iowa, Edmunds of Vermont,
and George of Mississippi. The house con
ferees are Reed of Iowa, Thompson of
Ohio, and Oates of Alabama. It was be
lieved that Speaker Reed would appoint
E. B. Taylor, of Ohio, and Culberson, of
Texas.Imt it is understood thatthe friends
of the Reed bill in the house protested.
Speaker Reed therefore appointed two
members with less radical views. There
is little doubt that when the committee
meets they will agree upon a measure
very similar to tho Wilson bill. They will
seek to avoid any legislation which will
involve other articles of commerce than
SPECIAL RATES FOR ALL CLASSES.
Washington, July 23. Representative
Mason from the committee on commerce
today reported a bill as a substitute for all
measures which have been before that
committee relative to the rates afforded
theatrical companies traveling in parties.
The substitute proposes an amendment to
the Interstate law which will not only per
mit theatrical or other companies to secure
from the railroads special rates, but will
give farmers, merchants or any societies
the benefit of special rates where seven or
more travel from and to the same point.
EXTENSION OF APPROPRIATIONS.
Washington, July 28. It has become
necessary in view of the failure of congress
to act finally upon all the regular appro
priation bills to provide for a further ex
tension of the appropriations on the basis
of those made last year and Chairman Can
non, of the appropriation committee, has
been instructed to report to the house a
suitable joint resolution. The bills that
remain undisposed are the sundry civil,
fortifications, and Indian and District of

Upham Like a Baby.
New Orleans, La , July 28. Arthur
Upham, of New London, Conn., and Bob
Fitzsimmons, tho New Zealander, fought
before the Audibon Athletic association
for a $1,200 purse. The crowd did not see
a light but it saw Fitzsimmons aud was
satisfied. The big, awkward, loose-jointed,
long armed Australian was not feeling
well, but after his right and left had
landed on Upham's neck, jaw and
stomack, Upham was at his mercy. The
fight could have been finished in the sec
ond round but Fitzsimmons took matters
easy. Upham was game and insisted on
fighting after all his chance was gone.
Fitzsimmons begged him to stay down,
but Upham rose each time just besore the
ten seconds were up aud Fitzsimmons only
struck as often as necessary. Each man
weighed about 155 pounds.
In the fourth round after four knock
downs Fitzsimmons got in a right hand on
the chin, caught Upham as he fell and
laid him down gently. Upham remained
A REPRESENTATIVE SOUTHERNER'S
Chicago, III., July 2S. "The Lodge bill
will doubtless become a law, anu tne con
sequences will be more Berious than any
body anticipates. It means negro domi
nation in the south, and that is what we
will never submit to under any circum
stances. Wo southern Democrats care
little about national politics. It is a
question of home rule with us. In a fair
election the negroes would carry the polls?
in many places. There i3 no use beating
about the bush. We all know it to
be so. Fair elections? No, so long as the
negroes are in the majority. We are for a
fair election between white men, but it
might as well be understood first as lust
the .south will not submit to negro rule,
federal law or no federal law." So said A.
Sternhart, of Greenville, Ala., who is stop
ping at the Palmer house. He spoke with
an earnestness that left no doubt as to his
sincerity. Mr. Sternhart is a representa
tive citizen of Alabama, and is now on his
way home from the session of the supreme

which he attended in the capacity of

Bee of July IS, in which Usher is charged
with robberv and murder. He complains

hard labor. "The crimes act" says a felony
shall be punished by "confinement
at hard in the penitentiary."
Tho act making Lett's offense
a crime omits the words "in the penitenti
ary." This discrepancy, Mr. Waggoner
claims, will release Lett from the peniten
tiary, and tho severest punishment that
can be inflicted is imprisonment in the
county jaiL He quotes the well known
principle of law that statutes relating to
crimes shall be construed strictly. If the
court releases Lett on t ho point, it will
practically discharge from the prison 700
or 800 prisoners in for other offenses,
whoso sentences are authorized by bections
of the law which omit the words "in tho
penitentiary." Mr. "Waggener is a lawyer
of recognized ability, and says ho does not
apply to the state court because it would
not be tho policy of a state court to make a
decision that would set at liberty nearly
all the prisoners in the penitentiary.
MARSHAL THOMAS KILLS A MAN.
Gainesville, Tex., July 2S. News
reached here this morning of a fatal com
bat between Deputy Marshal Heck Thomas
and a noted, desperado named Jeff Logue,
which occurred yesterday near Anardarko,
Comanche nation. Loguo was an old
criminal, and Thomas had a warrant for
his arrest, issued at Fort Smith, charging
him with murder committed some time
ago, and upon coming up on the desperado
he recognized Thomas and fired several
shots at him. The officer returned the
fire and Logue fell, mortally wounded.
Thomas, thinking the man dead, went to
him, and as he leaned over the prostrate
body the man raised the six-shooter, which
he still held in his hand, and shot Thomas.
The ball took effect in the left arm, mak
ink a dangerous wound. Logue died
almost instantly after snooting Tnomas,
exclaiming as he fired the shot: "D n
you, I will learn you how to approach a
gentleman to shake hands with him."
