Tariff Revision Is Republican
BABCOCK IS GUARDED
Not Captivated by Democratic Lik-
ing for His Bill.
PRESIDENTIAL BOOMS SUBSIDE
That of Fairbanks the Last Heard
From When the Hot Season
Called a Halt.
J"V»m The Journal Bureau*, Room 43, .Port
Washington, July 19.—Recently in this
column attention was called to the fact
that the democrats offered last winter to
secure the report of the Babcock bill from
the committee on ways and means, but
that Mr. Babcock declined. Mr. Babcock
Is a republican, and realizes that if there
is to be any tariff reform it must be
brought about by the republican party,
without the aid of the democrats, the
majority of whom are free traders. The
democrats are in favor of the Babcock
bill because they see a chance for stir
ring up trouble in republican ranks. Mr.
Babcock has made up his mind, it is said
by his friends, to abide by the decision of
a republican house caucus, should a cau
cus be called, or by the will of the major
ity of the republican members of the
■ways and means committee. There will
be a number of meetings of these gen
tlemen during the session to consider the
Babcock bill, and before any effort is made
to take a vote in full committee it is
said the republicans will have adjusted
their differences. At any rate, they will
The public must be careful to distin
guish between republicans who are in
favor of tariff revision, although holding
fast to the principle of protection, and
democrats who want free trade and are
anxious incidentally to stir up strife
among republicans. The tariff revision re
publicans are as good protectionists as
the ultra protectionists of the east who
are so bitterly opposing tariff modifica
tion. The difference between them is one
of degree. The difference between tariff
revision republicans and democrats is a
difference of kind. This fact should be
borne in mind as the discussion of tariff
Word from the west still indicates a
pretty solid line of attack in congress
next winter against the trusts. It will
be made by way of the Babcock bill and
the reciprocity treaties. One or the
other ought to be successful, western re
publicans think. It ia learned that the
high protectionists of the east, if pressed
to the wall, will raise against the reci
procity treaties a constitutional question.
"Has congress the right under the con
stitution," they will ask, "to delegate «o
the treaty-making power, the president
and the secretary of state, the right to
modify and enact revenue laws?" These
laws, it is expressly provided in the or
ganic law. must originate in the house of
representatives, be put through both
houses of congress and signed by the
president In order to be made effective.
The ultra tariff people will claim that the
reciprocity treaties are a flagrant inva
sion of the rights of congress, and a di
rect violation of fundamental law. The
question is a big one, and already has
engaged the attention of some of the
best minds in the country. It was dis
cussed a good deal during the session of
congress last winter. Just now it be
comes of the first importance because it
is the intention of the high protectionists
to raise it through their personal repre
sentatives in congress should they be
pushed to the wall by attacks from the
"What is the attitude of the people of
your state toward the present tariff
agitation?" said I to William P. Hepburn
of lowa, upon his recent return from that
"Those of our people who have given
any attention to the question," answered
Mr. Hepburn, and in doing so he reflected
his own well known personal views, "do
not want tariff legislation through treat
ies. Hence we do not care what becomes
of the reciprocity arrangements requir
ing the approval of the senate. There is,
however, a great feeling of opposition to
schedules that are no longer necessary.
The people of lowa feel that it is a grlevl
ance to have foreign consumers furnished
at a lower price than they are with the
products of American protective indus
tries. I myself see nothing sacred about
the Dingley law or any tariff schedule. I
am a protectionist and always have been

So I say that whenever the need of a

knocked off. This is not the Babcock

80,000 MEN WANTED
They'll Be Required to Harvest
Crops of Three States.
THE SUPPLY BEING LOOKED UP
No Special Alarm Is Felt Among the
Traffic Men of the
Conservative estimates place the num
ber of men required to harvest and thresh
this year's crop in Minnesota, North and
South Dakota at from 75,000 to 80,000.
This estimate places the requirements of
North Dakota and Minnesota at 30,000
each and the number for South Dakota at
15,000 or 20,000.
The men to meet this demand will come
principally from the lower peninsula of
Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, lowa, Kan
sas and Nebraska. Railway men gener
ally believe that all of the men needed
will be here in time for the wheat har
Manitoba is aVready at work import-
Ing laborers from eastern Canada. Premier
Roblin estimates that 20,000 outside men
will be needed to harvest the wheat crop
of the province. The estimate of Vice
President and General Manager Mc-
Nicoll of the Canadian Pacific is about
the same. He believes that the road will
be able to get all of the men required
in good time.
The fact that North Dakota farmers
have been unable to secure men to assist
In haying operations has caused much
uneasiness in that state. Farmers fear
that the fact that a few men were needed
in the northwest last year may have its
effect upon the influx this season.
F. A. Miller Not Alarmed.
F. A. Miller of Chicago, general pas
senger agent for the Milwaukee system,
who is in the city to-day says that in
his opinion the movement of farm labor
ers into the northwest will at least be
as large as that of any other year. "This
alarm over scarcity of harvest hands
is a regular thing" said Mr. Miller; "and
I have yet to the year when the situation
was really serious. At the proper time
the rates will be put into effect to bring
the laborers into this country. The rail
roads realize the necessity of doing what
they can towards taking good care of
this crop. Michigan usually contributes
well toward the movement of harvest
haii*s and I believe that she will send
as many men into these states this fall
as in other years. There are also many
men working in the harvest fields of
Kansas and Nebraska. Rates will prob
ably be made to bring these north if
necessary. Some of the roads have an
nounced that their rates will go into ef
fect Aug. 20. That is probably a little
late. Aug. 10 will probably see a large
number of men arriving here.
Demanda on the Sou.
W. R. Callaway, general passenger
agent of the Soo, says that the alarm
over the possible scarcity of farm laborers
in seasons past has not been borne out
in the final results. He does not look
for a heavy demand of men much before
Aug. 10. He does not regard the situation
as at all alarming. The Soo has* had no
requests for men to date.
Another traffic man says that the alarm
occasioned in some sections over the
report that there are no laborers to be
secured in Chicago is groundless. Chi
cago has never furnished even a very
small percentage of the northwest har
Manitoba farmers began the campaign
for help early. Many of them began
by writing to friends "back east" to come
west and "earn a stake" in the harvest
fields. It is estimated that this letter
writing In addition to the letters written
local papers in the eastern provinces will
bring an additional 5,000 men.
The possibility is suggested that the
northwestern farmer may be forced to
pay higher wages this year than for some
years past. Two dollars and board is of
fered at the present time. There have
been years in which the farmer was forced
to bid $2.50.
May Employ Indians.
The general alarm over the possible
scarcity of help in North Dakota has
through the suggestion from several
quarters in that state that the farmers
employ the Indians residing on the reser
vations who are willing to work. It is
estimated that there are 1,000 young men
on the Cheyenne reservation who are
able to work. While the reds can not
compare with a white man as laborers,
yet many of them are willing and can
save much grain. The rations of 700 men
on this reservation have been stopped by
the department on the ground that the
Indians are self-supporting, and the per
mission of the commissioner will be asked
allowing the reds to seek work in the

Dr. Paddock told of the injuries alleged
to have been sustained at the hands of
burglars by the Fosburghs, father and
son. The doctor then told of a second
vist to the Fosburgih house, made at 8:30
a. m. The Fosburghs were at breakfast.
The doctor announced that he had come
to hold an autopsy. Robert Fosburgh,
the defendant, objected to this proceeding!
His father, however, interrupted, saying:
"Don't Interfere; let the law take its
course." At this point the report of Dr.
Paddock as medical examiner of the au
topsy on the body of Miss Fosburgh was of
fered as evidence. Counsel had a tilt
because of Dr. Paddock's difficulty in
reading his own writing. Finally the
evidence was admitted.

for a complete compartment from Moscow
to Irkoutska, a distance of 3,400 miles, is
but $48, whereas the price first-class
from Minneapolis to Seattle, exclusive

of 1,800 miles, is $50. The United States

IS HARD HIT
Secretary of the Navy Orders His
Text Book Out of the Naval
Washington, July 19.—The secretary of the navy has decided that the third vol
ume of Mac Lay's history of the Spanish-American war shall not be used as a text
book at the naval academy unless the obnoxious language it contains in characteriz
ing the action of Rear Admiral Schley shall be eliminated. The secretary says that
it would be manifestly improper to have a history containing such intemperate lan
guage as a text book for the cadets. He will inform both Commander Wainwrlght,
who is in command of the naval academy, and Mr. Mac Lay, the author of the hiß
tory, of his decision.
In this connection, the secretary says that the proofs of the entire volume were
not submitted to him by the historian. He received only the proofs of the third
chapter, that relating to the mobilization of the fleets, which contained a summary
of the orders which he, as secretary of the navy, had issued in making the naval
preparations for the war. That chapter was satisfactory, and he returned it to
Mr. Mac Lay with an indication of his approval. He says he "never saw the account
of the battle of Santiago, and the criticisms of Rear Admiral Schley until after the
book was published. Mr. Mac Lay was appointed to his present position in the New
York navy yard Aug. 23, 1900, having been transferred from the lighthouse service.
Baltimore, July 19.—General Felix Agnus, publisher of the Baltimore American,
has written the following letter to President McKinley:
Mac Lay's history of the navy is the standard in use at the naval
academy. In the third volume, just issued, the historian charges Rear
Admiral Schley with being a coward, a liar, a catiff, an incompetent and
insubordinate. In an interview in the American this morning, Mac Lay,
the historian, who is a navy department clerk, classed as a laborer and
attached to the Brooklyn navy yard, says that proofs of this third
volume, which should have told the most glorious story in all our naval
annals, were submitted to Secretary Long and Admiral Sampson and ap
proved by them in advance of publication; also that Long put him in his
present position after he had read and approved this scurrillous attack
upon Admiral Schley. These proofs were also submitted to Admiral
Dewey, who refused to read them. If aught were needed to convince any
fair-minded man that a clique in the navy department has conspired to
traduce the hero of Santiago, and that the conspiracy was carried into
execution while that brave and gallant officer was suffering expatriation
on the fever-infested coasts of South America, this should furnish it.
Will you, Mr. President, in view of all this, sit quietly by and per
mit these conspirators to continue their diabolical work? Every Justice
loving American appeals to you, to intervene in the name and for the
sake of fair play. Next to being right all the time.which no man ever was,
the best thing is to find out as soon as possible that you are wrong and
right yourself immediately.

He and His Daughters Are Victims
of a Yachting Accident on
Long Island Sound.
New Haven, Conn., July 19. —Five per
sons were drowned in the sound yesterday
afternoon by the capsizing of the yawl
rigged yacht Venitzie of Philadelphia, five
miles east of Sands Point, near the New
York and Connecticut line. Two only of
those on board the yacht were rescued.
The drowned are:
ARTHUR C. COLBURN, owner of the
yacht, and his daughters, IDA aud ANNETTE
COLBURN, of Philadelphia.
CAPTAIN FLINT, of Brooklyn, N. V., mas

A SAILOR, name unknown.
Others on board the ill-fated craft, Mrs.
Walter T. Sprankle, of Philadelphia, a
daughter of the owner of the yacht, and
the Bteward, James Stanbridge, of New
York, were rescued by the tug Gertrude
after clinging for two hours to the bot
tom of a capsized long boat.
The yacht left Delaware City, Monday
morning bound for Newport. Yesterday
morning it started from Thompsonville, L.
1., the intention being to put into Black
Rock, Conn., last night and take on board
Mrs. Sprankle's husband, who was ex
pected there. According to the story of
the steward, the accident happened be
tween 3 and 3:30 in the afternoon. The
sky was very squally, and the steward
says he heard Mr. Colburn say to Captain
Flint that it would be well to take in
some of the light sails, but that Vhe cap
tain replied that the boat would stand
all the wind that was coming. She then
had on all of her light sails, including
jibs, staysails and topsails. Steward
