tors .ast evening, declared thai the schedule they
had arra og < I for sugar would meet with opposi?
tion
Mr Caffery says positively that If sugar docs not
r- dva what lt needs, he, for one, will vote against
th,- bill In the Senate He wants a graduated tax,
beginning with three-quartere of a real and nm
rm;,' up to one a;, i one-half cents a pound. This,
fif s,:\s. Will pive to the refiner the advantage of
ftn e;chth of a cent when the grade reaches No.

In this advantage of one-eighth of a cent, they are
willing that the committee should give to the re?
finer an additional one-sixteenth, which win put
him ena level with the producer, enabling him to
compete with foreign sugar, but not putting him
in a position lo control the markets.
kTHREE (>F TiiK chief pti muling bloi'KS.
There is son), evidence of a combination of
sugar, iron and coal Senators, and their demands
up^n the committee are causing DO end of trouble.
The Sena lora representing these three articles In
llst that the'.- ate and always have been, under
I>m eratic doctrine, purely revenue articles, and
that in Ihe present condition of things this ls no
M.. ? reuiovi the duties. The committee is d
aarous "f placating :hes-? Senators, and the lm
pre-^ B -; growlna that mutual conceiMUone will
be ti- result. Several Iron men were at th" Capi?
tol IhlS morning, and while they failed to see the
committee, it is known that -wnp of them got the
ear ot Individual members of the committee and
were in conference with Senatorr. from the States
most largely Interested in the Industries for which
they were pleading. The present law provides a
duty of 7.". cents a ton on iron ore, while the Wil?
een bill admits lt free of duty. Some of the Sen?
ators Interested to-day say that they believe a
duty will he pul upon iron ore by the Senate com?
mittee equivalent to about $0 cents a ton.
Coal still n mains an uncertain quantity so far as
the amount of the duty ls concerned, but those
best Informed are positive that a duty will be re?
imposed, and think that lt will be in thc neighbor?
hood of SS cents a ton. the present duty being ~ii>
cents a ton. Thc combination of these three arti?
cles presents un opposition so formidable to the
success of the bill that the committee naturally
desires to please these Int.-rests before the bill i.s
reported. Otherwise it is feared that such Demo?
crats would Join han'ls with the Republicans to re?
commit the bill.
Yesterday the committee took up the subject of
barley malt and concluded to equalize the matter
by llxmg a duty of ;'.? per cent on barley and bar?
ley mull, the bill as lt passed thc House putting
barley malt on the dutiable list at 35 per cent.
Lead ore has been discussed to some extent, but
the committee has not rea- hed a conclusion, al?
though lt ls believed to have done so on lend prod?
ucts. Ureat pressure is being brought to bear on
the Senators from the Northwest and the Southern
Sliver Senators on the silver side in the repeal light
to cause them to take care of this Industry, which
fO materially a ff e, ts thc sliver-producing States.
One member of the committee especially has ex?
pressed lily friendliness for such a proposition, and
as two of them are silver men. it is no; unlikely
that something may be. done for lead ores a little
better than was done bf the House.
TO RKPORT PROORKSS ON Tl'KSDAY.
lt I* not expected that the bill will be In shape to
lay before the full membership of the Democris
at the meeting of the Finance Committee on Tues?
day, although considerable progress will be re?
ported. One of thc- members uf the nib-committee
said this morning that all which had been done
up to this time was of a tentative character and
subject to revision. The < omn.lttee Intends to make
the bill a revenue measure, and with that end in
view will place on the dutiable Hst a number of arti?
cles omitt'd by the House, which, according to
I>?mocratlc doctrine, oug.it to be considered ns
revenue articles
There will, ii ls asserted, be no deficit In :he
revenues through this bill when the committee has
finisher! Its work, and necessarily much of what lt
does must be ba?ed upon the action tah tn con?
cerning the Income tax feature The Impression
is ga'nlng ground that the Income tnx may b- re?
ported to the Senate as a separate measure, he
cans-- , f tne apprehenslin that th> passar? of th
bill might be en.lang<?red If lt ls retained. This con?
clusion, lt is said, has boen reached by men who
are known to he advocates of the income tax.
but are moved by consideration of expediency and
not by their personal preferences.
Senator McPherson was at the Capitol to-day, anl
had a long conference with Mr. Voorhee*. It la ap?
parent that ?he New-Jersey Senator ls taking little
p*rt In 'he w..rk of framing the bill. He will not,
as he said to a rep >rter. he found In the ranks of
the "kicker?" Ha stated that his party was In
power and charge! with the duty of enacting such
legislation as lt deemed for the best Interests of ?he
people, <.nd f-o far as he was concerned be would Ix
in accord with his partv.
ANSWERS TO MR.VOORHEEtTS QUESTIONS
A LAHort or.CAN IN PITTSBURG ON" TIIK CAITSaTJ
AND CL'SUC OF TIIK PRESENT PISTKKSS
Pittsburg, Feb. 10 (Spec1al).-"The I^abor Tribune, '
the ofJctal or^.-m of th?- Amalgamated Association
of Iron and Steel Workers, bas sent replies to
Senator Voorhees, chairman of the Senate Finance
Committee, who had forwarded his tariff circular
embracing teri questions which were answered as
follows;
We represent the iron and steel industry of nilling
?Billa and bituminous coal mining, in the mills the
class ls of such quality that to take it out of Pitts?
burg, would leave the 'itv bereft. As to miners.
the] were some years ago ii quiet, thoughtful
people, given lo dbi" usslon, but of Int.- years there
nave been Imported Southern ISuropeani for the
purpose of breaking doun wases, ano IbeaS have
lowered ihe general reputation, which could be
rapidly recovered were this class eliminated.
V\'age? have been curtail.-d very much in the last
twelve months, due to the Introduction of new pro?
cesses and labor-saving machinery, to competition
among workmen to make records of big day's work.
to red-hot competition among employers, to the
W'eakening of labor unions (which is due more to
neglect or workmen themselves than to opposition
of the employers, though this latte- has been an
Important factor), to the tit.an. lal panic of the
carly summer, and to the change of policy threat?
ened by the Wilson bill.
Iron, steel and coal are all di pressed The wav
cut of the trouble ls to encourage in every way
Possible the employment of the people, and to do
thia as quickly as possible. To make the country
firosperoiis. everybody should be employed, and the
letter th<lr wages the more prosperous the country
will iv, for the workers are the consumers as well
a* the producer! Those of our trades who owe
partly for their houses, debi Incurred when wages
w'ere on a basis of ll .Vi per dav for common labor,
cannot pay this debt on n basis of $1 or ll 20 per
day, nor can they without great Inconvenience pay
laxet. <in charges (Ixe.I in prosperous time*.
Expenditures are only too widely reduced to the
soup-house level, which ls due to the r-ductlon of
wage rates and lack of emplovment of the past
twelve months.
The bent run mills are on short single turn where
for four yewrs preceding they were on long double
turn.

On the contrary, thc swindlers have been more ac?
tive lately than usml, sending to every part of tba
country their circulars, marked "confidential," and
pretending te offer for sale counterfeit money which

exposing the swindle for "rania, many men who
never read the papers COOM to the city with vision!
of getting rich by buying "grill" goods," and are
sent home with their satchels tilled with sawdust,
bricks or waste paper. The money which such foola
leave in the eitv every "."ear is sufficient to make
several Independent bands of swindlers wealthy.

could not detect If it were played upon him a doien
times, the satchel containing goon money ia changed
for one that coote'na nothing of value, and he la
