In the Senate Mr. Morrill's Reso
lution Declaring it Im
practicable To Attempt Any Tariff Legisla
tion by the Present
Proyolced a Spirited Discussion, Pro
and Con, between Messrs. Morrell,
ilcPixersou, Beck and Others.
The llesolution -was Finally Laid Over
for Further Discussion, and the
Senate Adjourned, in Memoriam.
The Principal Feature in the House
-was a Bill to Authorize the
Secretary of the Treasury
To Anticipate Accruing Interest on
Government Bonds and Provide
' for the Payment of the Same.
Washington, D. C, Dec. K5. Senator
Morrill presented the credentials of Sena
tor Edmunds for the full term commencing
March 4th, 1887. Placed on file.
Among the numerous bills entered and
lef erred, were:
. By Mr. Cullom: To amend the revised
statutes in relation to immediate transpor
tation of bonded goods,
By Mr. Bowen: Providing a new basis
for the circulation of linlimml bank1:.
By Mr. McPherson: To authorize the
reduction of United States bonds and cir
culation of national banks.
Mr. Plumb, from committee on public
lands, reported a joint resolution to author
ize the secietary of the interior to certify
lauds for agricultural purposes to the state
of Kansas. Calendar.
Mr. Morrill offered a resolution instruct
ing the committee on finance to examine
as to the expediency of some practical
measure for the maintenance of the system
of national banks with ample security and
without additional cost to the government.
Referred to the committee on finance.
On motion of Mr. Hoar the electoral
count bill as received from the house was
laid on the table mid ordered printed.
Mr. Morgan called up his resolution of
December t), requesting the secretary of
the interior to furnish information as to
the state of facts on which coal and iron
lands in Alabama have been withheld fiom
sale, notwithstanding the act of .March '.,
Mr! Cullom made an effort to have the
special order on Mr. Logan's bill, (accept
ing land on Lake .Michigan for government
purposes), postponed until Wednesday
next, but Mr. Piatt contended that the
special order for open executive session
took precedence of it.
The senate then at 12:30 resumed consid
eralion of Mr. Moi nil's resolution declar
ing the promise of making proper revision
of the Jaiiff at the present session obviously
hopeless and impracticable, and .Mr. Dawes
pioceeded to address the senate on the sub
ject. The secretary of the treasury, he said,
had come into the field and taken his ad
vanced position on the subject of the tariff
causing increased apprehension and alarm
in all the great industries of the hind sober.
Conservative business men and thoughtful, J
an moms out clear-headed dependants on
these interests weie now seriously inquir
ing whether on the whole they might not
be wiccked if the theories and doctrines
announced in the repoit of the secretary of
the treasury weie to govern iu the revision
of the tariff. The secretary of the treasury
threw overboard entiiely (and in so man
words') all idea of pioteciion to American
industry. Henceforth, according to the
secietan 's theories and dogmas, theie was
to inter into the policy that is to
control in the fashioning of the
the revenue laws of the future, no idea of
protection to American industry. The
secretary's considerations were not what
might be the effect of carrying out his
views on home productions, nor whether
they might be advantagous or injurious
to the vast interests invested in productions
in this country (more than live thousand
millions in 1SS0), or to the 2,700,000 wage
earner dependent on them. In the mind
of the secretary of the treasury no such
consideration was to enter into the uiicMion
of the imposition of duties. The secretary
would not remove the duties on sugar
becaMse they amounted to only 00 cents per
capita; but he would remove the duties on
wool, alihouirh they only amounted to 8
cents per capita, and on ready made cloth
ing, although they amounted to 'A cents per
capita. The proposition of removiuir the
duty on raw materials did not even meet
the approval of the manufacturers for
i whose lieuctit it was suggested.
i Un this point .Mr. J Jaw es read trom tes
j limonv taken before the committee on v. uv.
unci mean- in winch .Mr. Whitman, a lead
imr woolen manufacturer, declared himself
in favor of duty on wool so as to encour
age its production iu this country
and render manufacturers independent of
foreign w ml. He characterized the secre
tary 's ie.vsas wild and wautouand brutal.
But they had, he said, awakened serious
and well-grounded apprehension through
out the country. It was the ntiilucleof
those who had the tariff to reform which
led to these serious apprehensions. Their
industries turned to the senate for the alter-
native. Iliey looked to those who spoke ;

oi me country on winch its iutMre depend
and by -which alone its stability could be
maintained. lie who impaired and weak
ened these industries came very near to him
who sapped and mined the citadel of the
nation; therefore he had thought it not out
of place to impose that the finance commit
tee of the body should deliberate on the sit
uation and present to the public the possi
bility of a reform of the tariff that would
leave these results unimpan-d and give a
freer and broader scope to tfe energy, en
terprise and vigor of the Aiterican"people.
Those who met the exigencies of the past
were capable of competing with the prob
lems of the future. In the great struggle
for the possession of the opportunities" of
fered to promote industries ami home labor
they turned to those who Imd lifted labor
from degradation aud servitude to dignity
and honor, and whose policy developed the
strength and wealth and greatness of the
nation. He should, therefore, ask for the
adoption of the resolution which he had
Mr. McPherson said that there were but
two methods of disposing of the surplus
revenue: one was extravagant appropria
tions and the other was by" a reduction of
taxation. For himself he was in fayor of
the second alternative. The senator from
Ohio, Mr. Sherman, had suggested in his
speech the other day a policy by which
titty-four millions of revenue could be
avoided by striking off the tax on sugar,
and in the same breath that senator de
clared that the duties on sugar and on wool
were the only protection which the agri-.
cultural interests enjoyed. He (McPher
son) was opposed to" thj removal of the
duty on sugar and predicted that, with that
duty retained, nine-tenths of the sugar con
sumed in this country would be
produced here. "lie would
also retain the duty on the
high qualities of wool which are produced
in the United States, but he would remove
it from the cheap qualities of wool that are
not raised here, and that are used in the
manufacture of carpets and cheap fabrics.
He was a protectionist to the extent of giv.
imr to the laborer of this couutrv all "the
protection that he needed to compete with
foreign labor. He was in favor of higher
prices for American labor. God forbid
that he would ever consent to putting
American labor on a par with the pauper
labor of any country; but he was in favor
of giving to labor the raw material that
would enable it to compete with any coun
try. In an allusion to the K. of L. he said
that organization, provided it adhered to
the principles on which it was founded,
would be the longest lived with the most
beneficent rcsul's of any organization since
the world began. He would apple to every
industry the same principle that had been
admitted free of dutv aud the consenuence
was that Patterson today was sellingilk at
Lyons, France, the very heart of the silk
manufactories of the world! AVI13' was
not the same principle applied to the hat
ters of New Yoi k? If tho,e 10.000 opeia
tors had their raw material free they would
Hood the world with cheap hats. This
was the Democratic policy which he wanted
to see engrafted in the next tariff bill.
He was opposed to the starving of these
ten thousand hat operatives in New York
in order to support fifty musk rat trappers
on the shores of the Hackonsack river.
.Mr. .Morrill moved theoference of Jn's
resolution to the committee on finance.
Mr. Beck opposed such reference and
suggested that senators on both sides should
uige on their friends in the house to pass
some tariff measure so as to bring the ques
tion before the senate in sonic practical
manner and thus open the doors laiily to
debate. He was not wedded to any scheme;
he wanted taxes reduced; he believed that
before this country acquired the commercial
position it was entitled to, it must carry its
own products on its own ships, and that it
could not do so as long as it has to pay
filty per cent more on every bolt and on
every piece of cordage in a ship than its
competitors had to'pay. The removal of
the tax on tobacco or sugar would not
open a single manufacturing establishment
in 1 he United States. Such things were
only suggested for the purpose of prevent
ing an thing being done to enlarge manu
facturing powers to send manufactured
products abioad. The men whe owned
manufactories were content with the
American market. With all their
pretenses of aiding American la
bor they still intended to keep this
market to themselves, charging what they
like, and to let their laborers starve rather
than give them the balance of an extended

protested against the resolution being taken

men who thought with mm should h.ne a

man to cut oil the senator from Kentucky
from the opportunity of making a speech
on the tarilf. He. therefore, woultl not j
press the motion to refer. The resolution J
Wits then laid over. i

B vi.timoue, Md., Dec. 13. A coroner's
jury today investigated the death of Emma
Brown whose body was carried to Mary
land University last Friday night and sold
to the dissecting room. The evidence
adduced, and the admissions made by the
men under arrest, showed that the wonrin
was most brutally murdered by John Boss
and Albeit Hawkins, the former confessing
to having smashed her skull with a brick,
stating that Hawkins afterwards thrust a
large knife through her heart. Boss was
perfectly calm while telling his story, and
states the murder had been deliberately
made by himself, Hawkins and Anderson
Pieicy, the colored janitor of the univer
sity, and that the latter had for thre
weeks been arranging for the ihul. The
body was brought warm and bleeding to
the cellar, where it was received by Berry,
