THE PITTSBUKG DISPATCH, ' IFKIDAY, JANUARY " 18; 1889.
RATHER FREE WOOL,
the Manufacturers, Than an
Amendment to the Tariff Bill
HlOrOSKD BY SENATOR SHERMAN.
The House Making Progress Toward the
Admission of South Dakota.
SOW SEARCH STATEHOOD THAN EYEK.
LiTdy Tilts in tlie Senate Orcr the Tin Tariff and
The woolen manufacturers arc displeased
with some of the proposed schedules of the
Senate tariff bill, and declare they will
work for free wool in preference. In the
Senate, yesterday, lively debates took place
on the tinplate tariff and the proposition to
pay bounties to sugar manufacturers, Senator
Eustis becoming very sarcastic on the latter
point. In the House more headway than
ever was made toward the . admission of
South Dakota as a State.
"Washington, January 17. Tiiis morn
ing the Senate sub-Committee on Finance
in charge of the tariff bill heard delegations
of carpet and woolen goods manufacturers
and of wool growers, the former of whom
desired certain modifications in the wool
schedule tending to a reduction of some
duties, while the wool growers wanted still
additional duties levied.
William "Whitman, of Massachusetts,
spoke on behalf of the manufacturers, and
Columbus Delano, ot "Washington, D. C,
ex-Secretary of the Interior, for the wool
growers. Their views were at times widely
divergent and expressed with much vigor.
So far as could be learned the arguments
made no change in the minds of the com
mittee. Senator Sherman proposed the following
amendment to the bill, which the manu
facturers now have under consideration, and
will express their opinion upon before the
committee to-morrow: "Amend paragraph
341 to read as follows: The duty on wools
of the first and third classes, which shall be
imported washed, shall be twice the amount
of the duty to which they would be sub
jected if imported unwashed. The duty
upon wools of the second class, which shall be
imported washed, shall be 5 cents per pound,
in addition to the duty to which they
would be subjected if imported un
washed. "Washed wools arc defined
to be such as are washed in
cold water, on the back of the sheep. The
duty on wools of all classes which shall be
imported scoured shall be three times the
duty to which they would be subjected if
imp'orted unwashed. All wools which, when
imported, shall contain less than 12 per
centum of the weight thereof of yolk, grease,
dirt or other foreign substance or matter,
shall be classified as scoured wool, and pay
Some of the manufacturers said such an
amendment meant the destruction of their
industry, and that as against it they would
work for free wool.
SWEETENING FOR SUGAR.
The Senate Considers the AdTlsabtllfy of the
"Washington, January 17. "When the
sugar schedule of the Senate tariffbill came
up for discussion to-day a spicy debate en
sued on the amendment proposing a bounty
on sugar made from beets, sorghum orsugar
cane grown in the United States.
Mr. Vest declared emphatically his oppo
sition to all such bounties, which he con
sidered the most objectionable form of pro
tection. The idea of the Government going
into partnership with any individual or set
of individuals,in order to give them peculiar
advantages at the expense of the large body
of the people, was a relic of absolute
tyranny and utterly opposed to all free, pop
Mr. Sherman wished to try the bounty as
Mr. Eustis asked the Republican side of
the chamber what became of the argument
of their side that the substitute was framed
on the "theory" (to use Mr. Hiscoek's ex
pression) that it was the duty of the Gov
ernment (regardless of its needs or of the
condition of the taxpayers) to develop, by
protective legislation, every American in
dustry whether it was hoary-headedj in its
infancy, or still in the womb. What ex
cited his suspicion was that there was some
thing attempted in regard to the sugar in
dustry, which was not attempted in regard
to any other industry something mys- I
terions, if not of the heathen
Chinese system of legislation.
If the Republican majoritv in the Senate
Proposed to kick out the sugar interest of
ouisiana from the national household, like
an illegitimate child, and to let it come to
the national kitchen for crumbs of bread,
then the only thing he could say was that
Republican Senators bad abandoned .the
ground on which they had boasted of stand
ing, and that the last Presidental election
had been carried by false pretenses.
He did not believe that the opinion was
seriously entertained in the Senate Chamber
that the proposed bounty would ever culmi
nate in Congressional legislation. He
spoke of the Senate substitute as being
based on the Chinese theory of prohibition
and commercial non-intercourse, and re
ferred, jocularly, to the proposed protection
of American actors and actresses, which he
spoke of as "a protection to the legs of
American ballet dancers against British
The Senate adjourned before a, vote on the
amendment was reached.
SOUTH DAKOTA !EARLT IN.
The Honse Makes Some Progress Toward
Creating a New tatc.
"Washington, January 17. After the
transaction of some unimportant business
to-dav,the House resumed the consideration
of the Territorial bills. The debate waxed
warm, the omnibus bill being denounced by
Mr. Adams, of Illinois, and others, as "a
transparent subterfuge," and Mr. Symes, of
Colorado, characterized it as "a remarkable
measure, with a remarkable anthor." He
criticised the action which he supposed the
gentleman from Illinois (Mr. ' Springer)
would take in calling the previous question
upon the omnibus hill.
On motion, of Mr. Clifford, of Dakota, an
amendment was adopted granting 120,000
acres for the support of an agricultural col
lege in the State of Dakota. (The Senate
bill granted B0 sections of land.) An amend
ment was also adopted providing that the
lands sold for common school purposes shall
not be sold for less than 10 an acre. The
salarvofthe District Judge was reduced
from" 5,000 to 53,500. The 9th of April,
1889, was fixed as the date of the election to
be held to decide the question of an accept
ance of the boundaries and name of the new
States. On motion of Mr. Clifford an
amendment was agreed to providing that
at this election the State officers shall be
elected, and also two members of Congress.
A number of substitutes were offered,
pending the reading of one of which (by
Mr. MacDonald, of Minnesota,) the House
GOING TO IIAITI.
Tbo Allnntn lo Sail Saturday Tor the Pur
pose of Relieving the Galcun.
"Washington, January 17. The ques
tion as to where the Untied States steam
ship Atlanta is to go is settled at last. Or
ders have been issued to her commander,
Captain Howell, to proceed in lierj;tonre to
Port-au-Princo and report to Bear Admiral
Luce, commanding the North Atlantic
squadron, now on board the Galena. It is
expected that the Atlanta will sail from
New York Saturday morning. The United
States steamship Galena wilt return to the
Unitea States upon being relieved by the
Atlanta, and the commander of that vessel
will then he in command of the naval forces
in Havtian waters.
Nothing has been heard from the United
States steamship Ossipee since she sailed
from Norfolk, but it is thought at the Navy
Department that she has arrived at Port-au-Prince
before this time.
iTIIE TARIFF OX TIN.
A Stiff" Unto Adopted In Order to Protect
Iron and Steel.
"Washington, January 17. The Senate
at 12:20 to-day resumed consideration of the
tariffbill, the pending question being on
the amendments to the tin plate paragraph.
Mr. Hale asked Mr. Allison to state what
portions of the bill remained unacted on.
Mr. Allison specified as among the import
ant matters yet to be acted on, the wooden,
sugar, and wool and woolen schedules with
a great many detached portions from other
sections, such as rice, cutlerv, and various
other things that would lead to more or less
The discussion of th. amendment was con
tinued by Senators Vest and Allison, fol
lowed by Messrs. Gorman and Sherman.
Mr. Gorman expressed doubts as to the pro
duction of tin in the United States, and
said that for the next 10 or 15 years all the
tin that would be used in making tin plate
would have to be imported. The possibili
ties were that tin plate could not be manu
factured successfully jn the United States,
and therefore the proDosed increase of duty
would only be an additional burden to the
Mr. Sherman argued in favor of the
amendment, and said that it was not so
much a matter of protection of tin as of the
iron and steel plate industry. Of the 283,
000 tons of tin plate annually imported,
fully 275.000 tons consisted of iron and steel,
the remaining tons only being tin. The tin
was a mere incident. The Finance Com
mittee had assurances that, before the 1st of
January next, 20 or 30 different establish
ments would make arrangements to cover
iron and steel plates with tin. Under those
circumstances sufficient protection should be
afforded. There was no more reason why
the consumers of tin plate should be exempt
from taxation than the consumers of other
"When a vote was finally taken the amend
ment was adopted by a vote of 25 to 18.
CLEVELAND TO ARBITRATE.
The President Asked to Scttlo a Nicaragua
"Washington, January 17. A dispute
having arisen between Nicaragua and Costa
Rica in relation to the status of the proposed
Nicaraguan Canal, the American Minister
to Guatemala some time ago was instructed
to use his good offices to bring about an
understanding between the two Govern
ments. The following dispatch from him
was received at the Department of State
Guatemala, January 17, 1SS9.
Secretary Bayard, "Washington:
The convention between Nicaragua and Costa
Rica to arbitrate questions affecting the Nicar
aguan Canal was signed 10th. The President of
the United States is named the arbitrator.

maintain American interests there.
3IUST FAi TO COME IN.
The Ford Committee Proposes to Collect a
$5 Pec From Immigrants.
Washington, January 17. The major
ity of the Ford Committee on Contract
Labor has decided that a $5 tax shall be im
posed upon immigrants. Chairman Ford
proposed an additional section to the bill
which has been prepared to give effect to
views of the committee, and contemplates
tbe exclusion of aliens who do not intend to
become citizens. This met with some oppo
sition, as likely to lead to unpleasant com
plications with other nations which now ad
mit citizens of the United States, and it was
resolved to present the proposition to the
House as an independent amendment.

Helpless 40 Days
The great agony caused by rheumatism is in
dcscnbable, and the gratitude of those who
take Hood's Sarsaparillaand are cured is often
beyond expression. The following is from a
well-known "Wisconsin farmer, and is indorsed
by the editors of the Kcillsville (Wis.) Times
as entirely true:
'For 25 years I have suffered with sciatic
rheumatism. Last November I was taken
worse than ever, and was unable to get out of
the house. I was almost helpless for Wdajs,
suffering great agony all the time. In Decem
ber I commenced taking Hood's Sarsaparilla.
After the second bottle I was able to bo out
and around and attend to business. 1 took five
bottles, and am now so free from rheumatism
that only occasionally I feel it slightly on a
sudden change of weather. I Lave great confix
dence in Hood's Sarsaparilla." Chakles
