PARTY TIES BROKEN.
Plumb and Paddock Bid the
G. 0. P. Defiance.
The McKinley Bill is Too Rad
ical for Them.
They Think the Protective Policy Is
Carried Too Far.
Their Votes Recorded With the Demo
crats—Blair's Plea for the
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Washington, August 2. —The senate
met today at 10 o'clock and the roll-call
showed forty-nine senators (six more
than a quorum) present. The resolution
offered yesterday by Blair instructing
the committee on rules to report, within
four days, a rule for the incorporation of
the previous question, or of some
method for limiting and closing the
debate in parliamentary procedure of
the senate was taken up. Blair said sena
tors had spoken to him, indicating their
desire to be heard before action should
be taken in the matter and who were
not ready to proceed. He should there
fore not present the resolution this
morning, but he desired to say that he
had offered the resolution not with spe
cial reference to any pending
bill, but with a feeling that
there was a necessity for the
proposed change; the period had
arrived when in the transaction of the
country's business, the senate must
have some way by which a larger
number of important public measures
could be decided. As it now was, the
whole business of the country was at
the mercy of one or two.individuals who
might be opposed to a measure. The
majority was practically under the con
trol of the minority. Nobody could
complain that there had been a disposi
tion to procrastinate or to obstruct the
ordinary course of debate and a decision
on the tariff bill, yet, although the sen
ate had already spent ten days upon it,
only fifteen pages had been disposed of,
out of a total of 182 pages in the bill,
and all the great subjects of discussion,
sugar, reciprocity, etc., were still to come.
There was no reason to suppose, there
fore, that under the existing rules the
bill would be concluded before next De
cember. He had offered the resolution
not with a view to any pending meas
ure, but with the view of a fundamental,
radical, indispensable change in the par
liamentary procedure of the senate.
Morgan reminded Blair of the long
time (six or seven weeks) consumed in
the consideration of his education bill,
and said that the time had not been
wasted, as the result of the discussion of
that bill had been its defeat, just as he
hoped the debate on the tariff bill would
result in the defeat of that measure.
The resolution was referred to the
committee on rules.
The Tariff Bill.
The tariff bill was then taken up.
Yesterday before adjournment carbon
ate and sulphate and potash and
sponges w r ere placed on the free list.
The duty on sulphate of soda was
changed from one-tenth of a cent per
pound to 20 [per cent ad valorem.
Finally the schedule being reached
which refers to earths, earthenware and
glasses and glassware, McPherson's mo
tion to reduce the duty on fire brick
failed to carry. Plumb voted with the
Democrats, the first break in the solid
Plumb, having thus started in his as
sertion of independence of party alle
giance, so far as the tariff bill is con
cerned, began to take McPherson's
place in offering amendments. His first
two amendments were to reduce
the rates of duty on enameled
tiles and hydraulic cement. After some
discussion they were voted down by the
Republican majority—the Democrats, of
course, voting for them. On the hy
draulic cement amendment Paddock
joined Plumb in voting with the Demo
McPherson moved to reduce the duty
on common brown earthenware from 25
to 20 per cent, ad valorem. Carried —
yeas, 21; nays, 20. Paddock voted with
the Democrats. Plumb did not vote.
The next question was on paragraph
100, relating to china, porcelain and
crockery ware, the finance committee
recommending a reduction of the rates
in the house bill from 60 to 55 per cent,
on decorated articles, and from 55 to 50
per cent, on plain white and undecorated
ware. Members of the finance commit
tee, Sherman and Hiscock, expressed
their opposition to the senate amend
ments. Allison supported them.
Vest moved to make the rate 45 and
40 per cent, respectively.
Plumb Scores the High Protectionists.
Then Plumb took a prominent part in
the discussion, inveighing against the
exorbitant demands of the high protec
tionists. He said the American people
were entitled to have cheap goods if
competition could bring that about.
When, he asked, was the time coming
when the people of the United States
would get some benefit from the estab
lishment of home industries? Just as.
fast as the point was arrived at when
lower prices might be expected, the
manufacturers came to congress and
said they wanted more duties,
whereby the downward progress
of prices might be arrested. He had
no idea that what he might
say was going to affect the vote of the
senate. He could see that the cohorts
of protection were so organized that the
bill was to go through, substantially as
it came from the finance committee.
He believed in distributing the duties
necessary for the purpose of raising
revenue for the support of the govern
ment in Buch a way as to equalize the
conditions existing between the manu
facturers of this country and those
abroad. If he were in doubt he would
resolve the doubt in favor of the Amer
ican manufacturers; but if he knew the
exact conditions, he would put the home
and foreign manufacturer on the same
■ footing precisely.
Manufacturers vs. People.
The senate, he continued, owed some
duty to the American people, as well as
to the manufacturers. The Democratic
party had its full share of responsibility
for the iniquities of the present tariff
law, and of that which was now pro
posed. The Democrats in the house had
had an opportunity of correcting the
errors and wickedness of the McKinley
bill, but they had sought to evade the
responsibility of their votes, when, by
joining with the Republicans who were
opposed to that bill, they might have

eliminated many of its errors. He
could see the game at battledore and
shuttlecock between free trade and pro
tection constantly going on for political
advantage on one side and personal ad
vantage on the other; and between the
extremes the great body of the Ameri
can people were being crushed and
ground. He would apply the rule that
whoever demanded a tax for his own ben
efit, should be ready to show conclusively
that his interest was also the public in
Sherman Wants Crockery Protected.
Sherman replied to Plumb. He con
curred with the senator in the state
ment that no proposition to tax the
people should be supported unless there
was good ground for it. He went on to
speak of the growth of the crockery in
dustry in the United States, and said
such an industry was not to be ignored
and not to be refused any reasonable de
mand. Ihe prices of chinaware were
less now than the duties were ten veara
Vest modified his amendment by
making it to reduce the duty on dec
orated china to 50 per cent, ad valorem ;
on plain, white china to 40 per cent., in
stead of 60 and 55 per cent, as in the
house bill, and 55 and 50 as proposed by
the finance committee. The amend
ment was discussed pro and con at
Gorman thanked Allison for his frank
General Tariff Discussion.
After further discussion of the china
ware paragraph, George took the floor
and made a long speech on the general
subject of tariff".
Piatt replied and denounced an asser
tion made by George to the effect that
while the duty on steel rails was $11 a
ton, the labor in producing the article
cost only $1.54. The fact was, if the
production of a ton of steel cost $24, the
labor portion of that cost was not only
$1.54, but ten times that amount.
Jones, of Arkansas, supported George's
statement about steel rails, and also
spoke on the chinaware matter, apropos
of which he read from a paper a report
from Findlay, Ohio, as to the pur
chase by an English syndicate of various
glassware factories, and said the effect of
tariff legislation was to encourage such
trusts and syndicates.
Reagan warned the senators that the
Farmers' Alliance and the workingmen's
associations were not to be ignored.
A conference was ordered on the sun
dry civil appropriation bill.
At 5 o'clock Aldrich, intending to move
adjournment, proposed that a vote on
the pending question be taken Monday
without further discussion.
"Take a vote now ;we are ready; we
are always ready to vote as soon as dis
cussion is over," were responses from
several senators on the Democratic side.
Aldrich did not think there was a quo
rum present, but he was willing to try,
so a vote was taken on Vest's amend
ment, and the result was: Yeas, 17;
nays, 20; no quorum. Paddock and
Plumb voted with the Democrats.
The senate then adjourned.
Washington, August 2.—The house
today proceeded to further considera
tion of the senate amendments to the
sundry civil appropriation bill. The
bill was finally sent to conference, and
the house adjourned.
GRANT AND ERICSSON,
The Remains of Koth to Be Removed
Washington, August 2. —The acting
secretary of the havy has sent a com
munication to the commandant at the
New York navy yard, stating that the
depart 5 ent has fixed the 23d of August
as the time for the embarkation of the
remains of the late John Ericsson for
transportation to his native country, on
board the United States ship Baltimore.
In his letter the acting secretary says:
''It is the department's desire to sur
round the embarkation with every
circumstance that can invest it
with dignity and solemnity. All
the vessels of war that msy
be available will be assembled
in New York, and will be directed to
unite with you in paying to the de
ceased the honors befitting his rank and
distinguished name. The department
has invited all associations composed of
friends, companions or former country
men of Captain Ericsson to take part in
the procession to the cemetery.
In the senate, this afternoon, Plumb
offered a concurrent resolution, and
asked that it lie over until Monday:
"That congress desires the removal of
the remains of the illustrious soldier
and statesmen U. S. Grant to, and there
interment in, the Arlington national
cemetery, and that the president be re
quested to convey to the widow such
desire, tendering to her, on behalf of the
nation, all necessary facilities for such
removal and interment."

The Charges Against Majors Wham and
Towar Not Sustained—Kimball
Associated Press Dispatches.!
San Francisco, August 2. —A Wash
ington special says: The war department
has received the court-martial docu
ments in the case of Miltimore, Wham,
Towar and Kimball, the army officers
recently tried at Tucson, Arizona. It is
understood that the charge against Mil
timore of the fraudulent rental of his pri
vate property to the government at ex
orbitant figures, was not sustained by
the court-martial. It is understood
he is found guilty of charg
ing the government $150 for a
type-writer which was never bought.
The evidence adduced shows that the
man whose name was signed to the gov
ernment voucher never sold the type
writer. At Captain Miltimore's request
he had signed a blank voucher. It is
understood that upon his conviction in
this latter instance Captain Miltimore is
dismissed from the army. It is under
stood that both Wham and Towar,
charged with irregularities in the rent
ing of apartments to the government,
have been acquitted. Major Kimball,
who was charged with neglect of duty,
is sentenced to reprimand.
The San Francisco Exercised.
San Francisco, August 2. —A trial
trip around the bay was made by the
cruiser San Francisco today to put her
machinery in working order. Captain
Goodall commanded the big steamer on
this trip, and was busily engaged all day
yesterday preparing for the venture.
Captain Samson, who has been ap
pointed to the permanent command of
tho San Francisco, and who arrived in
this city Thursday, participated in the
trial. The engines were worked to thor
oughly test them. The firemen, who
were reported to be on a small strike,
went to work this morning as usual.
The engines will be worked again to
morrow, and the calculation is that the
cruiser will start in on her preliminary
trips Monday forenoon.

When six months old the left hand of our
