THE TARIFF QUESTION
THE M'KINLEY BILL AS SEEN BY
Gladstone's Address at Dundee, Scot
land, as to the Ultimate Effect
of the Measure.
A Prediction that the Bill Will Do More
' Harm to America than to
The Mexican Govemment'Begins the Policy
of Eetaliation by Placing an Enor-
mons Duty on American Live
Stockr-Other Tariff Notes
LOKDO, Oct. 29. M. Gladstone arrived
at Dundee today, and was presented with
the freedom of the city. In accepting t-e
honor, Mr. Gladstone made an address, in
which he referred to the commerce of the
city, which, it was said, was threatened by
the adoption of the new tariff bill by the
American congress. He would not, how
ever, bring a railing accusation against
the people of the United States.
Protection, although it might inflct in
cidental blows on some countries, did far
greater mischief to the people of the coun
try wh ch adopted such a policy, and
whose people it plundered and defrauded.
Mr. Gladstone said he was not going to
treat them to the commonplaces of free
trade. There were people who believed
that the injurious effects of protection
were chiefly found in the countries deal
ing with a protected country. That was a
fundamental mistake. There might be a
deal of disturbance, and even demoraliza
tion in trade; but it was not true at any
time that the trade of any country on earth
could interfere seriously with the prosper
ity of Great Britain.
Suppose there were twenty great mar
kets in the world, and in one a stringent
protective measure like the McKinley bill
was p ssed. In that case, doubtless, the
first effect would be to injure us, and to re
btrict dealings. But a larger and wider
effect would be to raise the standard of
prices under protection. This meant a di-

gave us a freer and broader field in other
markets. It was not possible for Great1
Britain to receive a vital or profound in
jury from any of those operations abroad.
France and Germany threatened retalia
tion. England should not be led into such
a suicidal policy. There were still capital
and plenty of resources in this great coun
try to hold and keep its place in the mar
kets of the world.
A favorite idea of many people in Eng
land was a zoliverem or tne wnoie Joritisn
empire, including the colonies anddepond-
encies, against all foreign countries. Ho !
doubted much whether the whole empire
would consent. There was a host of ob
jections to it It would be hard upon
countries pursuing free and pen
trade with England to punish them
because some particular country had
adopted a restricted system of con merce.
Further, although an imperial zollverein
would, to some extent, enlarge commerce
with the colonies, it would infa'libly con
tract commerce with the rest of the world.
The amount of imperial commerce was
187,000,000 yearly, taking in imports and
exports of all kinds, whereas the foreign
commerce amounted to 554,000,000. It
would bo a most inglorious policy to clog
British energy and enterprise in a market I
of 554.000,000 yearly in order to enlarge
action with a murket of one-third that
The operation of the McKinley tariff
might not disturb trade so much as ex
pected. America must get paid for her
exports to England, and must take pay
ment, either in British manufactures or in
foreign or colonial goods, through English
markets. One effect of the McKinley tariff
wou'd be to direct the attention of the
(taction of liner classes of go. ds. because '
British manufacturers towards tne pro-
these bore the leakt intolerable protective
rate. The result would be to elevate
and improve the taste of British
manufacturers; to spur them on
and to stimulate their ingenuity. The
probable tendency produced by the tariff
among the Americans would be towards
the manufacture of coarser goods, bus de
grading their productions, whilst the Eng
lish improved theirs. Although America
had gone on tightening her protective sys
tem, she had not lessened hug.Kh trade;
in proof of which statement Mr. Gladstone
Continuing, Mr. Gladstone said that in
spite of protection, co merce between
America and Great Britain had rapidly
and generally increased. The experience
of the past ought to dispel alarm that the
McKinley law would effect material in
jury. Tho harm to English commerce
would be fractional compared with that
done to the urote ted couutry. Tho word
protection was a misnomer. It ought to
be oppression. It was a delusion and a
fraud. America was the country that
could best afford to try this strange and
astonishing experiment. Her natural
wealth, soil, minerals, and immense ter
ritory, made her a world in h rself.
With tho vast amouut of free
trade within herself, nothing could
interfere. The possession of those enor
mous advan ages helped to disguise the
truth from Americans; but the adoption
of the MiKinley law would involve a tear
ful waste of resources by which her peo
ple ought to be made strong and happy,
lie advised that we should not complain
so much of injury to ourselves; first, be
cause it was impolitic, ami, next, because
it would be mainly untrue. Substantial
injury could not be done to us. though oc
cusional injury might result. America
should be left to argue out the question of
protection and find for herselt tho evil
tho tariff would accomplish.
In conclusion, Mr. Gladstone said: "If
we have faith in the economic and moral
truths of free trade, let us have faith in
their vindication nest of the Atlantic as
well as east. People so acute as the
Americans will find the way to results
best for themselves especially by the
people of England, who ought to show
that as much as they value America's
commerce, they value her friendship
and regard still more," Cheers.
An Enormous Duty Placed TTpoii Live
Stock Imported Into Mexico.
Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 29. There is
considerable excitement among Kansas
City stockmen, rel tive to advices received
from Mexico, to the effect that that
country has placed a duty of $500 per car on
American importations of cattle. If the
adwees arc correct, and they come from a
it liable source, this duty practically pro
hibi s all live stock trade between this
CLuntry and Mexico. The act of the Mrxi
cm government is purolya retaliatory one,
and was precipitated by the fear Mexicans
have of tne McKinley bill. Mauv cars of
American cattle are now on the Mexican
border About 500 bushels of grain have
to be sent in with every train of live stock
1 1 --T-fflT- --itftoaafr
shipped from this city to Mexico, and the
government will not even permit this to
go through unless a duty of SO cents per
bushel be paid. It has been rumored
among stockmen here for the past three or
four days that the Mexican government
was contemplating a move of this kind,
but there was thoueht to be nothinc in it.
until the dispatches were received from
agents there today, apparently confirming
Harry P. Childs, superintendant of the
stockyards, was interviewd on the subject
tonight. He was inclined to look on the
bright side of things, and was not sure
that the duty would be prohibitory, be
cause the Mexican ppople would be obliged
to purchase the cattle and hog's, and they
may yet be obliged to pay the advance in
the rate of duty.
Mr. C. F. Allcut, of the Allcut Pack
ing company, thought a duty of $500 per
car would ruin the trade between the
countries. He said the Mexican govern
ment had already placed a duty of $2.50
per head upon all hogs shipped into
Mexico. Probably seventy head were
packed into cars destined for Mexico, and
that would moan an additional duty of
$7 per head, or a total of about $10 per
head. A duty like that, he said, would be
enough to put a stop to trade any where in
the world. Mr. Allcut said the hogs
shipped into Mexico during the past two
years were largely for marketing, and not
for breeding purposes. There was a heavy
import duty on lard, an article which
must, in the present condition of things,
be imported into Mexico. It had been
found more profitable to ship the hogs and
refine the lard in Mexico, and then retail
the meats, than to pay the duty on the
lard. But the report of the new duty
wouiu nave the ettect oi putting an end to
the live stock trade between the two
countries, provided the duty was of the
nature and extent reported by the papers.
New Orleans. Oct. 29. The Picayune's
San Antonio special says: The retaliatory
policy of the Mexican government against
the McKinley bill has begun, and its effects
will be severely felt all through the west
ern states. Beginning with yesterday a
tax of $500 a car load on horses and cattle
from the United States will be enforced in
all Mexican ports. Cattle and horses sent
across the Rio Grande yesterday were sub
ject to these duties. The coiihequence is
that several loads have been seized.
The Mexican congress, in addition
passed a retaliatory tax upon importa
tions, which have been mostly shipped to
Mexico from Kansas City. The importa
tion tax on United States hogs has been
fixed at $2.5 a head. As there are no hogs
of any value in Mexico, the result will be
that the Mexican consumers will pay 12)
cents per pound for pork, instead of the
present price which is 8 cents. Exporta
tions to Mexico have for the present
entirely ce.ised. It is understood, how
ever, that they will shortly be resumed,
as the Mexican purchaser and not the
American exporter will pay the duty.

Butterworth, of Ohio, was today married
to Mr. Haughwait Howe, of the state de

taken place tomorrow. "Last Fr day Mr.
Howe was taken ill at his rooms at the
Metropolitan club chambers, and has since
grown rapidly worse. Hi mother and
stepfather, Dr. and Mrs. St. John Roos,
of Kew York, were sent for, and arrived
here last night.
Mr Howe is suffering from mflamatorv

of mind and disappointment because of his
inability to keep his wedding engagement
tomorrow; and when Miss Buttenvorth
learned this fact, she proposed that all

sick room. The physicians in attendance
hold a consultation and came to the deci
sion that a wedding would be the best pos

the party assembled in the chamber of
Mr. Howe, and the ceremony was per
formed by Rev. Dr. Bartlett, of the New

Perry, Ga.. Oct. 29. Tom Wolf oik was
hanged at 1:30 p. m.
Just before dawn on the morning of
August 6, 1887, in Hazard's district, some
twelve miles from Macon, nine people
were brutally murdered by a single assas
sin. The victims of the awful butchery
were: Captain Richard F. Wolfolk, Sr.,
his wife, Mrs. Mattie, their children, Rich
ard F., Jr., aged 20; Susan Pearl, aged 17;
Annie, aged 10; Rosebud, aged 7; Charlie,
aged o; Mattie, aged 18 months, and Mrs.
Tempie West, aged 4S.
The scene of the crime was the Wolfolk
homestead, an ordinary southern country
farm house. On the Saturday night pre
ceding the fatal Sunday morning, there
were ten members of the household pres
ent, including Mrs. West, who was a vis
itor in the house. The first alarm of the
tragedy came from Tom Wolfolk, the only
survivor of the massacre. Tom went to
the house of a negro tenant named, Green
socket, not ar from the Wolfolk house,
about daybreak, and called to him that
some one had killed his father.
The news that a terrible crime had been
committed at the Wolfolk house spread
with phenomenal rapidity, and soon a
great crowd was gathered about the place.
Hurried investigations revealed that the
crime had not been exaggerated. Nine
dead borlies were lying in horrid confusion
in the house, every one of them brained
with an ordinary wood-ax, that had evi
dently been secured from the yard. In the

Nothing In the house had been disturbed
and a small amount of money in the pock
ets of Richard, Jr., had not been touched.
There were no indications whatever that
robbery had been the motive for the deed.
The story told by Tom Wolfolk was that
he had been awakened by hearing his
father cry out a little before day. Just then
Richard had jumped out of bed and run
into his father's room. He heard Richard
knocked down, and then, fearing tor his
own life, he had fled, jumping out of a
window in his room and ran to Green
socket's to raise the alarm and secure
Wolfolk's account of the crime was un
sat isfactory, and few believed it. Suspicion
ouickly fell on Ilim as the murderer, and
lie was taken iu custody. Investigation
showed that the only tracks about the
house traced in blood from the blood-besmeared
floor were those of Wolfolk.
Tom admitted they were his, but said
he made them when he went into the
bloody room alone after the murder. He
was searched, and on one leg, about the
knee, was found the imprint of a bloody
hand. Ho had on a shirt much 100 large
for him when searched, and afterwards
his own shirt was found in the well, blood
stained and clotted with human nrains.
The motive for the crime was found in
Tom Wolfolk's enmity for his step-mother
and his desire to have undisputed posses-
fit. rt t-l.te? fofhnr'c TTVirtr front- nl- j
sion of this father's property. Capt. Wol
folk was twice married, having by his first
wife two daughters and one son. Tom. On
acouut ofceitain business complications he
settled the bulk of his property on
his second wife, first, however,
giving his elder children their share. Tom
was not satisfied with his, and hated Ins
step-mother and her children in conse
quence. Wolfolk was 27 years of age at the time.
He was about average height, compactly
built but not stout, with dark hair and
eyes, and a black moustache. His expres
sion was rather boyish than otherwise.
He had alwavs been of a sullen disposi
tion, and made few friends. His dislike
for his stepmother and her children was
known, and he had been heard to say that
he ought to have the old man's property
and that he intended to have it some day.
Wolfolk was charged with the murder of
the nine members of his father's house
hold, by the coroner's jury, and in ISs. he
was brought to trial m Macon, before
Judge Gustm of the liibb county superior
court. The theory of the defense was that
a crazv negro of the neighborhood had
committed the crime; but the
theory failed and was practically
abandoned before the trial was
ended. The jury found Wolfolk guilty
after being ont but a few minutes, and he
was sentenced to death The snpreme
court granted a new trial, however, and in
March, 1S9. he was tried at Perry, Hous
ton, county, a change of venue having
been granted because a jury could not be
secured at Bibb. Again Worfolk was
convicted. Another appeal was taken,
bnt t.e supreme court sustained the court
below, and he was finally sentenced to be
hanged at Perry. October 29.
Wolfolk maintained his innocence
through three years of imprisonment, and
up to the time of the execution he never
betrayed emotion of any kind, and pre
served a uniform sullen indifference.
When ne spoke of the crime, he denied
that he did it, but seldom expressed re
gret at the death of his relatives.

"V e shall have all the restrictions re-

who are over on the other side, inform me I
that they have not found the slightest
trace of pleuro-pneumonia since they ar
rived, in any cargo of cattle exported from

English veterinarians tell them the last
trace of the disease has disappeared. I
think we will soon be able to announce
that the disease has been stamped out in
this country. The only traces of it remain
ing are in a herd down on Long Island,
and we have that closely quarantined. I
feel certain that the restriction placed on
our cattle wiil be removed very soon.
That will make a difference of from SS to

"Entirely. There is no doubt now that
beet sugar is beyond the experimental
stage. The Nebraska factory, when I left,
was producing 12K per cent of sugar, or
ituoub mree tons a ua). uur experiments,
made for the purpose of finding out the
best section for this industry, have proven
that the beet needs rather a cold climate.
They cannot grow successfully in a cli
mate that produces the sugar cane; but in
colder climates they do well. Wisconsin
is one of the best states for a successful
prosecution of that industry: even better
than Nebraska. I think. To get the best
result, however, care has to be taken in
growing the beet. By a careful selection
of seed the saccharine matter can be in
creased greatly. In France and Germany
they brought it up from 8 to 15 per cent.
Our experiments have been undertaken
with their seed. It will be a great indus

Guthrie, Ok., Oct. 29. The crisis came
this moruing. It has been the effort of one
faction to prevent action on the King
fisher capital bill until after the election,
believing that it would affect the party
interests. The other faction desired im
mediate action. But action on the bill has
been postponed. The scenes on the floor
of the house were anything but credita
ble to that body. It is devoutly to be
hoped that there will be no recurrence of
the outrageous proceedings.
Mr. Daniels' substitute for article 13 of
the school bill, leaving the question of
separate schools for the colored and white
children to local option, will undoubtedly
obtain in both houses.
Messrs. Pitman and McCartney were
the only absentees at this morning's ses

Mr. Post at once rose to a point of order,
and held that the previous question pro

No. 49 (Kingfisher capital bill).
At this point, Terrill rose and stated
that he would see to it that the rules were
enforced, at the same time placing a re
volver on his desk.
This the messenger removed, when Ter
rill attempted to secure it.J This he did
not succeed in doing, and left the room.
A vote was taken on the previous ques
tion, which resulted in its carrying by a
vote of 12 to 4.
Here there was more or less dietnrb
ahce, members questioning the status of
the question voted upon.
Mr. Post What is before the house?
Mr. Merten I insist upon my right to
the floor. When the previous question is
moved, then the previous question is
ordered. We are voting on a suspension
of the rules, and not the previous question.
Mr. Campbell It seems to me that this
question is plain. The motion last night
was that the rules le suspended and house
bill No. 49 be taken up. The vote was
taken on the suspension of the rules, and
j resulted in the carrying. The voto was
then on the previous question carried.

national organiser for the Alliance for tho

pened to be here today ou business, and
after Mr. Perkins' address, Mr. Dickinsuu
was called to the platform and exported a
scheme which was recently concocted by a
ring of the lender of the Alllauca
to deliver the Alliance to tha
Democratic party of the south. It
is a secret orgauization, ho said,
within the Alliance, and is known as
'Anti-monopoly No. 13." Mr. Dickinsen
asserted that the object of tha Alllanca
had been perverted, and that the rank and
die of the Alliance was kept In ignomnco
of the objects of tint leaders, and that
"Antl-mouopoly No, 1H" is just tho umn
as tho "ViUcttes," who were exposed two
years ago. Mr. Dickinson claims that
owing to the political tendencies of tha
Alliance its memberohip has decreased
very much within tho paat month. Mr.
Brush endorsed the assertion made by Mr,
Dickinson and hoped that the Alfiauco
could bo saven from tho pending destruc
