PI OF CONGRESS
Tiiriir Bill Disposed of in
It Is Now Heady For Final
Tho House Passes a Iltll for a
Fourth District Judge
Washington, September 30. Tho
report of the Conference Committee on
the Tariir bill was taken up ami Mr.
Carlisle addressed the Senate. He
asset ted that tho bill as it stood (except
ing sugar and molasses) removed from
tho free list and placed on tho dutiablo
list more than it took trout tho dutiable
list ami placed on the free liat. He also
asserted that the bill would reduce tho
revenues and increaso taxation. Unless
all his calculations are at fault, the
average rate of duty under this Con
ference bill and Administrative bill on
dutiable articles would bo CO per cent
instead of 45,l percent under tlio exist
ing law. Mr. Carlisle went on to give
figures as to tho increased taxation under
tho Conference bill. In order to
compensate for the enormous increase of
taxation, a tax of two cents a pound
(amounting to $5,800,000) was to be
taken off tobacco. Tho removal of that
tax would relievo no man and be bcuc
ticial to nobody except tho manufactur
ers and retailers of tobacco.
Coming to tho question of a bounty on
sugar ho said it would amount on a basis
of the present production to between $7.
000,000 and $ 8,000,000 a year. It is tho
first time in tho history of tho country
it was proposed to pay a bounty to tho
domestic producer, but no part of the
bounty, he asserted, would bo paid to
the grower of beet or Eorghum or cane,
livery dollar of it would go to sugar
manufacturers. Tho producer would
not receivo a higher price for his pro
duce, nor would theeonstitnerreceive any
lHiiietit from tho bounty paid for sugar.
It would sell in tho markets at thofcame
price precisely aa tho duty paid refined
sugar coming from other countries. Tho
courts had invariably held that no Stato
legislature could authorize a county or
municipality to impose taxes for tho
puroso of encouraging manufacturer
or any other industrial pursuits. If the
States could not do it (with unlimited
powers of taxing) how, Mr. Carlisle
asked, could tho general government
Rcforing to tho reciprocity amend
ment, ho said it was a proposition to
confide to tho judgment or caprico of
tho President alone to determine.
Tho amendment was not reci
procity, it was retaliation, pure and
simple. The proposition was one to re
taliate on tho people of the United
States by imposing a duty of 3 cents a
Kund "on coffee and from 35 to
50 per cent on sugar, unless
China. Japan, Brazil and Spain
should do things over which consumers
in tho United States had no control.
Tho amendments were mero political
devices to appease as far as possible an
indignant public sentiment, nnd check
for the time being tho rising cloud of
opposition to the extreme pchcy of pro
tection. Mr. Allison criticised several of Mr.
Carlisle's 8tatementB; nnd denied their
accuracy. Ho (Allison) differed from
Carlisle absolutely as to tho effect of tho
bill, and gave it as his belief that it
would reduce the revenues to an amount
between $40,000,000 and $45,000,000.
Coming down to the sugar question he
said ho had conversed with the planters
of Louisiana who havo come to Wash
ington, and there was not one of them
who did not say tho proposed bounty
would stimulate immensely tho product
of sugar in I,ouisiaua nnd bo a great
boom to thorn. Hut now tho Senator
from Louisiana (Gibson) charged tho
conferees with discrimination against
that industry. If it were true that all
IiOuisiaun sugar planters spurned tho
bounty and denounced it nnd declared
it unconstitutional they might find a
Congress that would take them at their
He lxdieved the bill on the whole a
fair bill to every section of the country
as a protective measure, aim no uiu noi
believe its general effect would bo to
0erate harshly on one section of tho
country ns against another section. He
thought sonio of tho duties (many of
tliein) to high and had saidso more than
once on tho lloor of tho Senate. He
hoped tho bill would havo a fair test,
and if it proved benellcinl, ns ho be
lieved it would, it would settlo the
question of tnriff for many years to

IIOKKOKS THE EXILES AUK COM
1'ELLED TO KXDUKE.
Story of a Jinn, Who, After llelng Trans
ported from ltuaaln, Makes IIU Escape
San FitANcisco, September 30. The
Exnminer this morning prints a two
column interviow with Edward Lazereff,
a Russian fugitive from Siberia, who is
at present in this city.
Four months ago, by secret means, he
made his way through tho lines of Cos
sacks which encircle Irkutsk and trav
eled on foot, on horsbnek or by water to
Nikolscusk, at the mouth of tho Amoor
river, nnd thenco along the Pacific
Coast of Northern Siberia.
Lazereifs misfortunes date back to
1874, when a political outbreak in tho
province of Volga resulted in tho
seizures of 2000 prisoners, including him
self. Thoy wero u'iven no trial, nor even
told of what they wero accused. Ho
served a four year's imprisonment and
was then drafted into the Russian army
before Kars. Later on he wns again ar
rested and served another year's im
prisonment. Again in 1884 a political
uprising in tho province wliero he wns
practicing law caused lus arrest aim lie
was sent to Siberin for three years.
Lnzarcffsaid if once nrrested, whether
witli cause or not, a Russian continued
an object of suspicion and is liablo to
arrest at any time and may bo thrown
into jail without ever knowing tho
charge against him. On his return from
Silieria he again practiced law, and for
several months remained unmolested.
In February, 1888, however, he was
seized on tho charge of having written
n political address during his former
term of imprisonment, and by order of
tho Czar was sent to Siberia for five
years. In August a party of prisoners,
of which he wn? one, began tho trip on
foot to Irkutsk, which they did not
reach until the following February,
having traveled thirty or thirty-five
versts a day, through rain, snow and
fog; over frozen plains nnd mountains;
men, women nnd children chained to
gether ; the femnle prisoners subject to
insults, not only from their fellow con
victs, but from their guards. Plows,
scant and poor food, and little sleep,
marked tho whole long journey.
At Irkutsk, Lazareff stated that the
life the prisoners led was even 'vorsc
than that at the prison of Chita. Every
indignity was offered to prisoners and
tho only tiling that kept many of the
unfortunates alive was tho hope of ulti
ma to escape, although the prison and
city were surrounded by an almost end
less chain of sentinels. Lazareff and
one other finally managed to escape one
dark night. They took separate roads
for freedom and, though pursued Laza
reff eventually managed to reach the
Coast and bonrd a British steamer for
Japan. He arrived hero September 17,
and his solo desire is to meet George
Kcnnnn and help on the movement to
bring tho whole subject of Siberian
cruelties before the Czar.

Raisin grnpo growers and vineynrdists
will suffer greatly from last night's rain,
particularly as it did not clear up this
morning. Tho heaviest raisin grape
growers had a largo quantity of seedless
raisins out. Tho muscatels wero all
taken care of, however.
Wheat raisers are thankful for tho
rain, as it will help fall planting. Re
ports throughout tho county state the
hop growers had nearly finished picking
and tho rain was not disasterous to
Napa, September 30. Tho rainfall for
the storm amounts to 39-100 of an inch.
Business is practically stopped. Grapes
will rot badly and be saleable only for
distilling purposes if the rain continues,
which seems probable. The dainago to
the grapo crop already is very great.
Vineynrdists are much discouraged at

FAMINE IN IRELAND.
OUOANIZINO AN AMERICAN KKLIEF
A Large Number of Prominent .Men In
terested In the WorkContributions
of Money anil Provisions Asked For.
New Yomc, September 30. The Sun
tomorrow publishes nn appeal to the
people of America from tho American
Committee for the relief of tho famine
in Ireland. It says tho full per cent of
actual suffering from hunger is not yet
reached, but there will Ihj days of
starvation unless help comes not far oil'.
In tho last great famine in 1878-79
Pnrnell, Davitt and others who voiced
tho country's appeal for food pledged
themselves never again to nppear as
supplicants beforo the world on lichalf
of starving Ireland. So no appeal lias
been sent out and probably none Would
come from that source until the situa
tion became desiwrate.
A movement is on foot among well
known men, not connected with any
Irish societies or political lodies,to bring
to the attention of America the nppaling
calamity which now threatens Ireland,
before actual death from hunger hns
claimed any victims. It hns been decided
to organize under the name "American
Committee for Relief of the Famine in
Ireland." It is proposed to make its
work cover both North and South Amer
ica. The personcl of the American
Committee contains the following
names: Chairman - General. James

position tnken by Round is that direct
aid should be given to discharged prison
ers by Stnte agents. Tho Penal system
of the country ought to be so planned
nnd executed that no prisoner could
leave tho prison walls until fitted to
earn an honest living and he had an

President Arthur. I had known him
intimately in Mississippi. He had
lived in my family. At the time he was
appointed he was in a low state of
health, suffering from consumption.
When he arrived at Tucson he tele
graphed me to come immediately to
that city and assist him in having the

organizing it. I complied with his
request and remained with him threo
or four months when I returned to my

Deputy United States Surveyor under

Deputy Surveyor had you ever known
a man by the name of James Addison

Rcavis or Paralta Land Grant?"
queried the reporter.
"I had never seen or heard of Reavis at
that time. Hut about a year afterwards,
or perhaps later, the Peralta land grant
papers were filed in the office ot tho
