TiiKKnis no longer room to doubt
that the .Standard Oil Company, the

trols juito three-fourths of the stock.
And there is as little room for question
that it means to crush the life out of
all tlie seed-mills that have hitherto
opposed it or may hereafter stand in
its way'. It is bearing down like an
avalanche and is striking terror to the

high. It is built, of pressed brick,
relieved by black and terra cotta en
tablatures, tho center pediment being
surmounted by a statue of the
goddess of commerce, the Cotton Ex

over tho center gable problematic of
the roign of King Cotton. This build

A n election in Vermont for Fuito of

Protection for Amerlrani Abroad
Land Pre-EmptljBS-Ircn and
&teel Industries Note.
Washington-, March 4. The iron
and steel industries of the country
were discussed before tho Ways and
Means Committee to-day by a delega
tion of the American Iron and Steel
Association. Among the many gen
tlemen present were B. F. Jones,
chairman of tlie delezation and presi
dent of the American Iron and Steel
Association ; Joseph Wharton of Phil
adelphia, representing the steel rail
industry; Mr. Ridgeway of Spring
field, 111., open hearth steel; James
Emerson of Beaver Falls, Pa., steel
consumer; Henry Whitelv of Phila
delphia, sheet iron; T. It. Wells of
Youngstown, O., for cotton-ties and
hoop iron. President Jones opened
the proceedings with a brief address,
protesting against the present Hgita
tion of the tariff questions, which the
association was assured would be in
jurious to tho business interests of the
country. Mr. George Cope, secretary
of the association, read a paper on
"Tho Question of Tariff Revision," re
citing the objections of the American
Iron and Steel Association to House
bill No. 557ti (the Morrison bill).
The paper recites the objections of
the American Iron and Steel Associa
tion to House bill No. 557H (the Mor
rison bill.) It states that the associa
tion does not despair of convincing
the committee that the present tariff
is not in need of general revision, and
that such re' ipion would seriously in
jure the industries of the country if it
should become a law. A subcommit
tee of the Wavs and Means Commit
tee gave a hearing in the afternoon to
several gentlemen - tobacco growers in
Connecticut, New York and Wiscon
sin on the subject of a proposed
clause in the tariff bill relating to to
bacco. The present law provides that
leaf tobacco suitable for wrappers, of
which it requires more than 100
leaves to weigh a pound, shall pay a
duty of seventy-five cents. The argu
ments made before the subfomm ttee
were to the effect that the limitation
of 100 leaves to the pound should be
omitted, and that the following duty
should 1h! imposed on all leaf tobacco,
commercially known as wrapiiers,
seventy-five cents per pound, If not
stemmed, and $ 1 a pound if stemmed.
The night session was devoted to. a
discussion of arrangements for ship
ping. The Interstate Shipping Com
pany endeavor to mako an arrange
ment for dividing the goods, shipping
to different points and settling with
the shippers. Capt. Morton favored
the organization of a State Horticul
tural Society. No united action was
desirjd. The effort was to impress
members with the importance of re
viving the State society. A resolution
favoring the organization of a Slate
society was adopted. Capt, Mortoa
then spoke on' the vegetables to be
grown for profit. He told how to cnl-'
tivate turnips, peas, beams, asparagus,
Irish potatoes, cabbage, sweet pota
toes, cantelopes and tomatoes.
The thanks of the society were ten
dered Col. McWhirter for his offer to
publish the essays delivered before it.

the power of Congress under the con

against the United States, and con
cludes as follows: "Was Congress

Tha Chinese In the We.t.
Washington, March 4. Rumors
were current here to-day to the effect
that the Chinese Minister had received
instructions from his government to
demand from the United States the
total disavowal of the recent outrages
against Chinese residents in the West
ern States and Territories, tho condi
tion, punishment capitally, if killing
could be proved against individuals,
and a pecuniary indemnity to the suf
ferers for their losses; and that, if the
United States refused to comply with
the demand, tlie President was to be
informed that the Chinese govern
ment would immediately proceed to
collect the indemnity from American
citizens in business in the Imperial
territory, and withdraw its protection
from tncm. In an interview this
evening, the Chinese Minister said to
a representative of the Associated
Press that whilo he has information
that China, and especially the prov
ince of Canton, the home of a large
percentage of the Chinese of the Pa
cifie slope, is greatly excited over the
outrages, and that retaliation has, in
some instances, been threatened by
the excited people, he has received no
instructions to make any formal de
mands upon this government, neither
has lie any information that such do
mands are contemplated.

body of Charles Cohn, for many years
editor of the Staati-Ztitung. Mr. Colin

A mass meeting of the car drivers
of the various lines of the city who
organized as the Kmpire Protective
Association, and who are seeking to
get the same terms for the drivers of
the Dry Dock, Hast Broadway and
Itatterv" lines as have been granted to
several other lines, was held to-night.
After nearly forty-eight hours con
tinuous session, the committee re
ported to the meeting that they con
sidered a general "tie up" at
'1 o'clock to-morrow morning as
the best means of solving the diffi
culty, and the motion being put and
carried, will be put in font' to-morrow
(Friday) morning. The Sixth avenue
line drivers, alter they tie up, will not
again go to work unless they get i'i 50
a day, the same as the Kightb avenue
line," and the Seventh avenue and
llroadway drivel's are of the same
opinion. It is an open secret that the
employes of the elevated rail
roads are waiting an order to
shut down till matters are satis
factorily settled. The officers of the
I'irst Brigade, First Division National
G minis. State of New York, were noti
fied to bold their men in roudincsK in
case of trouble. The car drivers of
the striking cross-town lines met to
night. Ihe meeting was secret, but it
was learned that addresses were
mailt' urging the men to hold together.
Said one of the officers toil reiKirter:
"It took ll'OO policemen to run one
car to-day. Does that look ehcour
Hiiing for tlie companies? We have
the power and will decide whether
or not to tie up all the surface
roads." Another officer said that not
only thesiirface roads, but the elevated
roads and the Brooklyn and Jersey
City ferries would stop running to
night. P. J. Walsh, who claims to be
an insurance agent, was arrested this
evening ou complaint of a car driver
of the Broadway line. He wascharged
with representing himself as one of
the Kxecutive Committee of tho Km
pire Protective Association, and using
ids pretended authority in ordering a
number of drivers on the Broadway
road to tie up their horses and quit
work w hen they reached the depot.
Walsh boarded' the cars between
FortyHoeond and Forty-seventh
streets, and gave the instructions,
which he said came from the associa
tion. Tho consequence was that a
number of cam weru tied up between
4:15 niul 4:45 o'clock p.m., when it
was discovered that W alsb was not
what he pretended to be, and he was
arrested. The Dry Dock Company
held a meeting to-night at which the
superintendent was authorised to em
ploy competent men on tlie terms de
manded by the strikers, and to insure
them protection and permanent em
ployment; that no pains or expense
will be spare-! to keep tho cars goinir,
and that the Attorney-General and the
Railroad Commissioners be notified of
that fact. The District Attorney says
there is no legal remedy against the
Btrikers; that they cannot be tried for
conspiracy for refusing to work.
