It was a dreadrul struggle that the

KELL-tY ON THE TAKIFF.
Thn Father of rtio iloato ltepties to
Chairman 3HI1 Bank Free-TrUo H-
ransue Formal Opening of the TariC
Debate Republican 1'atrloti.m anU
Washtsoton, April IS. The debate on tho
tar.ff question was opened yesterday by
Chairman Mills, who delivered an ouc-end-
out free-trade speech in support of his
bill. Judge Kelley, the oldest member on
the Republican ride of the Ways and Means
Committee, answered Mills in a set speech,
and the issue between the two parties is
thus sharply joined.
When the confusion incident to the close of
Mr. Mills' speech had subsided Mr. Kelley (Pa.)
took the floor in opposition to
the Tariff bilL He declared that the enact
ment of this measure would Instantly paralyze
the enterprise and energy of the people. Under
the banelul influence of such a law the report
of the censifs of 1C90 would announce
the overthrow or our manufacturing su
premacy and the reduction ol our commanding
commercial position to that of colonial depend
ence. It was studiously designed to produee
these dire results arid nicely adapted for its
purpose. It was confessedly a partisan meas
ure, and was framed in the interest of a
party whose leaders appeared to be
obvious to the overwhelming social
and economical changes wrought by tho
abolition of slavery. The gentlemen who
framed this bill, and could brook neither modi
fication nor discussion of Its provisions by their
associates in the committee to which the prep
aration of revenue bills was confided by law,
were, with but two ercepttons, representatives
or what was slave territory. The bill was an
anachronism; it had no relation to this era; it
belonged to the sadd:st epoch in our Nutioaal
history, the period between 1S21 and 1561. Dur
ing that period slavery dominated our Na
tional councils and guided the administration
of our National aflalrt. In hostility to National
interests, and. In the interests ot frse trcais,
twice threatened war. It was in the in
terest of free trade that war was threatened
In support of tbe doctrirvj of nullification, and
it was in the Interest of free trade that the
country was lnTolvod for more than four years
in a tratricidxl war. the proportions or which
were more gigantic than ever characterized a
clTll war. The entire South knew that free
trade was essential to the porpetuity o!
slavery in the Republic, and it should
also kcow that tho logic that could de
fend rroe trade in a country endowed with
the boundless diversity of the elements of
manufacture, and tho immense supply
of the forces for their convers.on 'which
we enjoyed, vanished when sluvery was abol
ished. By putting wool on the free list It wuld
abolish sheep husbandry and Impoverish the
more than a m Ulon man who own Cocks or
are employed la their care, and by working
this ruin It would dlmialsh the supply of
chenp and hc<hful animal food now
furnished fcy wool-growers to mining
and manufacturing laborers of the
country. It would also render the production
l ' .-v
WIIXIA3I D. KEIXEX
of American tin plates and cotton ties impos
sible by placing those art.clcs on the free list
with wool. By the transfer of these and other
products of coal and iron ore to the freo list,
and by reducing the duties on steel rails,
structural iror, nnd many other forms or iron
and steel sufficiently to withdraw protccf.oa
from them, and permit foreign producers to
flood our markets, it would, though it main
tained existing duties on coal anil iron ore,
close a major.ty of the bituminous coal fields
and ore banks.
President Cleveland's free-trade message, by
Its assumption that the duty was always added
to the cost, not only of imported coaimodlt es
but to the price of like commodities produced in
this country, showed how profoundly ignorant
he was of economic science. To illustrate the
puerile absurdity of this assumption he (Kel
ley) iAvlted the President's attention to tho
fact thr.t though the ddtles Imposed on sugar
when reduced to tdvalorem standards were
never so h gh as they cow are, the
price cf sugar was never so low in
this country as it is cow. The
progress of sugar-making in Louisiana since
1S6 might be c:ted as a vitalizing in
fluence of protection duties. In spite of the
steady dcclino in the pr.ee of foreign suar,
the poverty of hor people and the demoraliza
tion of her plantations ut the close of the war,
Louisiana, encouraged by protective duties,
hart added mater.a'.ly to the world's supply of
Coming io the subject of the surplus Mr. Kel
ley said he would derive the National revenues
from customs duties so adjusted as to stimu
late and aefend home productions, whllo pro
venting combinations, trust & azd monopo
lies of any kind. Tho reduction of tax
ation should be effected immediately by
the abolition of sources ot income
the receipts from which may be computed
month by month, if cot absolutely day by
day. The politics of this country is now
dominated by the uhisky trust ss abso
lutely as it was by slavery before tho war,
and IClng Alcohol Is prov.sg that he Is as
hostile to National development as King Cot
ton ever was.
la concluding. Mr. Kelley said that tho per
petuation of the internal taxes is the issue pro
tected by the President in his tree-trade mea
ssge and oy Jive Southern gentlemen who have
dominated the councils of the Commlltoo on
Wayj and Means. The purity of the Govern
ment, the safety of business and the morals ot
the public demand the abatement of the sur
plus by the repeal of the internal taxes from
which it Hows.
Mr. Kelley spoke for two hours, and when
he resumed his seat was loudly applacded
and received the congratulations of his party

Postmaster Judd, cf Chicago, hrs issued

cal Eetnrnlnc Boanl A Dlsnifled lie
Ity to su Attack Made by Vct, of Mis
souri. Wahhtkctos. April 19. Mr. Sherman ad
iressed the Senate yesterday on the bill for
he admission of South Dakota as a State,
indthe organization of the Territory ot
North Dakota. Why, Mr. Sherman asked,
ihould South Dakota not be admitted?
Simply because the Democratic party did
not want that State admitted. Dakota
would be kept out until some other Demo
cratic State lew entitled, should be at
tached to it and hauled in on its skirt.
There was no use, therefore, in wasting ar
gument about It
Cominjr down to tho discuss fon Tuesday
between Senators Test and Elinunds, he
siid an issue had been made relative to the
elect'on of President Hayes, and ought to
be discussed if there was any doubt about
it. He undertook to conrince Senators by
evideace taken at thn time when the events
were fresh that the Republicans were rijrht
in 1S7C. He proceeded to jrive a history of
the returning' board of Louisiana and of
the two commission? sent there one
by President Grant, composed of distin
jru!shed men of both sides, and one by tho
Democratic National Committee. It hid
appeared, according to the vo:e as actually
casr, that there was a Dsmocrat'c wcjoriiy
in Louisiana, but, acting under the laws of
thi State, tho TO'es of parishes had been
excluded where there had been fraud and
v.'olcnco, and the result of that exCiUioti
ha-1 been a majority in ftvorof Pres-dano
Hayes. If the actunl resu'.tB of the ele.-t.on
.ii Louisiana had been made known, he be
lieved ther would havn been u majority of
from 10,000 to 20,000 in favoc ot Sir.
Hayes. Aa to tho E.ectoral Commission bill,
uo one had resisted it more than he and
Senator Morton, of Irdi-ma. Twenty
!x democrats and twentv-one Republic,
ans had voted for tho bill, and fourwun P.e
publicaos (inolnding himself) an 1 but one
Democrat had voted sgaiust it; There hud
'ceen the tamo kind of rote In tho other
Houe. The bill hud 1-een supported by tho
Democrats as a means by which tha de
cision of tbe roturnln? bo.tr 1 of Louisiana
would be overthrown and the paople de
prived of tho President elected by them in
a lejral i.nd oonstitnt.on.il way. The very
d ascription of the fraud in Louisiana al
most appalled Mr. Saerm-in, even attar tho
kipst of ho many yearn.
Recurring to "the election of Hnyea and
the non-aleotlon of Pck-rd. Mr. Sherman
i.tid both had boon fairly and legally
elected, uid. explained the difToience in
the rf ault by stating that the question of
the Presidential eloct on had been docided
by the Electoral Commission, aud th it of
Gubernatorial eleclton by tao Louisiana
Legislature, which, after a contest of two
montis hid been Domocrnta The Demo
cratic party had not only by fruJ and vio
lence sought to i on rol tho Presidential
election, bnt it had actually succeeded in
depriving of their offlcis the duly-elected
Governor and members of tho Legis ature.
Then ho read extracts from a speech made
in that State by Senator Eustls in which he
declared it to'be the determination or the
white men of Louisiana to solve the race
queston without r-egard to Northern enti
inent, and predie'ed that the final roiult
would be tbe overthrow of negro rule and
the establishment of white man's Govern
ment If that, said Mr. Sherman, waB the
determination of the white people of
Louisiana tho constitution of th United
States would have to be chansred Thai
constitution declared that a Republican
rorm of government 6hould be guaranteed
to every State. When it waB said that the
black man should not rule it was said that
the majority should not rule, for he be
lieved that tho blocks were in a majority
there, and they had behind them a great
many white Republicans who were among
the highest of tho poople of Louisiana in
wealth, social standing, tnd Influence.
The people of tho South, instead of
Booking to win tho colored people by
kindness (he wished to God they
would, and he did not care how
many votes thoy got in the process) had
maintained a aystem of domineering crime
and violence. Not only did tbe returning
loard of Louisiana have suflicient evidence
before them of fraud and violence and
outrage in the election of 1870. but the
present Governor and one of its Senators
aad confessed all, and more than had ever
been claimed by the returniug board. It
over any body had any doubt of the
election of Mr Haye. that doubt had ben
removed by the admission of the very men
who hul participated in the wrong of that
d:.y in Louisiana, and hereafter, when any
uun asserted of President nayes that be
had been olected by fraud or wrong, or
had not bem duly elected, be (Mr. Sher
man) would hold him in contempt as ut
tering thai which was not true, and which
was denied by tho very men who over hrew
local government in Louisiana in 187(5.
Senstor Yest (Ma) attempted to reply to
Senator Sherman's remarks, and stated that
Casenavoand other members of the return
ing board had been rewarded by President
Hayes. At the conclusion of his remarks he
asked why the vote which gavo the elec
toral vote to Mr. Hayes w.-ik not good
enough" to give to Mr. Packard the Gov
ernorship of Louisiana, quoting at the same
timo passages from Mr. Sherman's Nash
ville (Tenn.) :.nd Springllo.d vIlL) speeches.
Mr. Sherman thanked the Senator for
reading extracts from Mr. Sherman's
speeches. Every word in those speeches
he would utter aguin it opjiortunry of
fered. Who removed Packard? Had Pres
ident nayes power to elect Packard to of
fice or to recognize him before the Legis.
latum of the Stat j had duly elected him?

This is the way the dreaded pneumonia
takes people off.
The list of notable men who are ita vic
tims is appalling.
It sweeps over the land like a scourge
and destroys poor and rich alike.
Every one dreads it Its coming is sud
den, its termination usually speedy.
What causes itl
Pneumonia, we are told, is invited by a
certain condition of the system, indicated if
one has occasional chills and levers, a ten
dency to cold in tho throat and lungs, rheu
matic and neuralgic pains, extreme ttrtd
feelings, short breath and pleuritic stitches
in the side, loss of appetite, back-ache,
nervous unrest, scalding Bensations, or
scant and discolored fluids, heart fiutter
ings, sour stomach, distressed look, puffy
eye sacs, hot and dry skin, loss of strength
These indications may not appear to
gether, they may como, disappear and re
appear for years, tho person not realizing
that they are nature's warning of a coming
calamity. In other words, if pneumonia
does not claim as a victim thopersons hav
ing such symptoms soma less sudden but
quite as fatal malady certainly wilL
A celebrated New York physician told the
Tribune that pneumonia was a secondary
disorder, the exposure and cold being simp
ly the agent which develops the disease, al
ready dormant in tha system, because, tho
kidneys have ben but partially doing their
duty. In short, pneumonia is but aa early
indication of a bright's diseased condition.
This impaired action may exist for years
without tho patient suspecting it becauso
no pain will bo felt in tho kidneys or thoir
vicinity and often It can do aotectca only
by chemical and microscopical observa
Nearly 150 of tha 740 deaths in New York
city the first woak in April (and in six
weeks 781 doaths) were caused by pneu
monia! The disease Is Tory obstinate, and if tho
accompanying kidney disorder is very far
advanced, recovery is impossible, lor tho
kidneys give out entirely, and the patient is
literally suffscatod by water.
The only safoguard against pneumonia is
to maintain a vigorous condition of tha sys
tem, and thus prevent it attacks, by using
whatever will radically and effectually re
store full vitality to tho kidneys, lor, if they
are not tound, pneumonia cannot be prevented.
For this purpose there is nothing to equal
Warner's safe euro, a romedy known to
millions, used probably by hundreds of
thousands and commended as a standard
specific wherever known and used. It does
not pretend to euro an attack of pnou-
monia, but it does remove Vti cause of and pre
vent that diseass if taken in time. No reasona
ble man can doubt this if ho regards the
personal experience of thousands of honor
When a physician says his pationt has
either bright's disoase or pneumonia bo con
f esses his inability to euro, and in ameasuro
he considers his responsibility ended. In
many instances, indeed, persons are report
ed as dying of pneumonia, heart disease,
apoplexv and convulsions, when tho real
cause of death and so known by tho physi
cian is the kidney consumption. Thousands
of people have it without knowing it and
perish of it becauso thoir physicians win
not tell them the facts 1 Tho same fate
awaits every ono who will not exercise hu
judgment in such a matter.
