Mr. Morrison introduced a resolution
for the holiday recess from December 22 to
January 4. Referred.
Mr. iliscock called up his motion to sus
pend the rules and pass the bill relating to
the duties on tobacco. The bill amends
the statutes l elating to the duties
on leal touacco as ionowa:
Leaf tobacco in any bale, box, package or
bulk, any part of which is suitable for
wrappers, if not stemmed, 75 cents per
pound; if stemmed one dollar per pound
upon the whole ot such Dale, uox, pacK-
age or bulk.
Mr. Morrison, ol Illinois, opposeu me
bill. Since the introduction of this meas
ure and only as late as last Saturday, the
house, with th consent of the gentleman
from New York (Hiscock), had decided
not to have any rcveuue legislation, neither
to increase or diminish the revenue, and,
indeed, not to consider the question. He
had hoped that obedient to the will of
the house the gentleman would
have withdrawn this proposition to in
crease a tax already enormously high.
The proposition is to impose a duty on all
impoited leaf tobacco suitable for cigar
wrappeis tc seventy-five cents a pound; or
if stemmed orki dollar a pound. The
greatest portior of this tobacco imported
now is sixty-iiv& cents a pound. The pre
text for the pending measure was that the
law, as it now stood, was evaded. The
law which was adopted w ithout ever hav
ing been considered or read in the house
under what was known as the Keefer Reed
device for a change of rules, imposed seventy-five
cents on imported leaf tobacco of
requisite fineness and quality for wrappers
andom dollar forstemmed. The tariff com
mission had been asked to impose that duty,
and after investigation of the whole ques
tion it had declined to report in favor of it;
then it had come to be a law in the way he
had already indicated. The pending pro
position was to impose a duty of 75 cents
to protect the home producer of leaf tobac
co who was already protected by a duty of
65 cents a pound ; that rate was ample
Mr. Breckenridge of Arkansas regarded
the bill as a modest proposition to protect a
certain class of tobacco 600 per cent. The
cigars wrapped in Sumatra tobacco were
used principally by working classes, and
although it paid a subsidy of 90 per cent,
on some 7,000 persons in this country there
was no commercial, industrial, financial
reason, based on public interest, for the
passage of this bill. It was a proposition
of subsidy, pure, simple and unadulterated,
and he hoped that the day would come
when the people would whip such proposi
tions from the capitol as the money changers
were whipped from the temple. The prop
osition of the gentleman from New York
was somewhat peculiar; it was not simply
to tax all wrappers 75c and $1, but it was
to tax at that rate all tobacco that was in
the bales in which there was a single leaf
suitable for wrapping.
Mr. Hiscock's motion was lost yeas 90,

tive: Anderson of Ohio. Boyle, Curtin,

Mr. Hammond of Georgia opposed the
bill and declared that the first
section would strike down seven

while the second section would place a
premium upon scounderlism.
Mr. Butterworth of Ohio, regarded the
bill as a bold attempt to kill the goose that

Mr. Townshend saw in the opposition
to the bill a renewal of the old struggle

The Boodler Ex-Alderman Given Ills
Sulphur and Molasses.
Mew York, Dec. 20 The
last act in
the McQuade drama seemed to have eveu
more interest for the public than the
scenes of the trial. This "morning Cham
bers street and the approaches to the
brown stone courthouse of general session
were thronged with hundreds of people.
Admission was free to all, aud the large
court room was densely packed. The
other "boodlers" were conspicous by their
absence. McQuade was escorted into the
court room by Under Sheriff Sexton. He
took his old seat and very quietly waited
for the hour of sentence. At 11 a. m. Re
corder Smyth entered the court room
With memory of the Jaehnc case the au
dience had the idea that there was no show

ranted. Alter tlie raiding General 1 ra

set aside on these grounds. General Tracy
also moved that the officers who had charge
of the jury during the trial be called and
sworn. This was on the strength of the
statements made to them by a Mr. O'Bryan
to the effect that on December 15th the
jury were taken to the Astor house, to
lunch by the unusual route past the office
of the New York World, in front of which
was displayed a bulletin reading, "Has the

with being a friend of the boodler."
Mr. Martine read in reply the affidavit of

the defendant by outside iufiuence, but that
he acted on the evidence alone.
Recorder Smyth wtid he thought it v. as
his duty to take more than usual caution in
all details of this case. Officers were
picked, a respectable hotel selected for the
accommodation of the jury; jurors cont
cntiously warned on each occasion of their
leaving the court room; special caution had
been used aud the court felt satisfied that
the interests of the prisoner had been care
fully guarded. In the matter of the affi
davits of Vickerman and Ncsbitt, the re
corder said that it was this action which
the district attorney had a right to take in
the case of Jaehnc, cited regarding the
form of indictment, the court declaring
the McQuade indictment to lie like it, nun
was sustained by the general term, and the
court of appeals. Motion for a new trial
was denied, General Tracey taking excep

Tho Campriell Dhrorce Case.
Londox; Dec 23. Sir "Charles Russel
concluded the argument for Lady Colin
Campbell In her divorce suit ngainat her
husband today. The judge proceeded at
ouce to sum up the case for the jury, no
said Lord Colin Campbell denied his wife's
charge of 'uifidclity; which depended
chiefly on- thd testimony of Lady Miles.
Whatever "might- be aid against Lady
Miles by the defense,, it- must be admitted
that she "was "Until lately Lord Colin's
friend; that she had done all in her power
to discourage he bringing of action against
him; that sho ouly took Lady Colin's part
when ' she became convinced that tinjiui
charges were to bo brought against that
The testimony given by the doctors that
Mary Watson was virigo intacto did not
negative the testimony given by Lady
Miles that she m.v LnnJ Colin and die girl
in such position as to warrant the bt-lief
that the pair were guilty. Suspicion,
however, the judge said, was insufficient.
If adultery wJuOndf provetl as a fact tho
jury were Icffifut that Lord Colin was in
At the last trial at which Lady Colin sc
cured a decree of separation, it was shown
that LonrColfuhad given plaintiff in such
manner a to amount to cruelty, which fchc
alleged as the baj of her petition fur sep
aration. In the present case the evidence
against Lady Colin depended on what fam
ily scrvams Said. This should bo
received with suspicion. Jn regard to
the Purtleet incident the judgr jyiul there
u ere o many important examples of mis
taken identity that the jury would le com
pelled to carefully consider whether suffi
cieut evidence, bud bevh adduced to reliably
establish the Statement that the ladv who
was there with the Duke of Marlborough
was Lady Colin Campbell. If Neptuuo
Blood's testimony was true that he saw
Lady Colin ou that day at home, then the
Purileet storV v. as demolished.
Referring d the allegation concerning
Lady Colin's conduct at Leigh court, the
judge suid they all depended upon stories
told by servants, and the pnucipul one
told by Rose Baer, her own fellow, de
scribed as a chiller, and hud coincided with
her. Lord Colin's conduct toward his
wife while hhu was in Puriy on the occa
sion w hen ho telegraphed the Parisian po
lice to arrest-her and lodge her iu the pros
titute's prison.. ludge Butchar characterized
as outrageous, remarking that he never
h..d known of anything more, dishonest
than Lord Cidin'H allegation to the Puns
officials that his wife wai living in open
adultery .with one uf Uic co respondents
and should be arrested and treated as a
common woman of tl town.
The Mory. told by the manservant,
O'Neill, that hciiuw through the ke)ht.Ie
of the door of the dining room at I'atognn
place Chief Shaw and i,ady Colin in crim
mal intcrf-onr-v, th judg nid. he could
not regard with favor. Tho jury .jmist

the juy should further consider the qms
tion whether Chief Shar?b tcwtimoii) in
denial, M thefctatemeiit of n dNtinguKhed
public tenant, was not worth ui much, if
no, moru, than the statement of i.ch a
person as O'Nuill.
General Hutler, the court thought, should
have come Into court and given teMininnr
as to his innocence, but so long tis hu chute
to remain away there was no power in
England to compel him to come. It Low
ever, the judge said would be ImjKHblf to
exaggerate the lueanncj-s exhibited by Gin
eral Butler if he was innocent, in remaining
away fron court, ltfcau'c in doing so h'
diverted Lady Colin.
But the. ju'lge told the jury they must
not take General Butler's ahcnrc as !
dence of guilt on either his or Lady Col
in's part. He was protected by the clause
of the law which makes it impossible to
ask incriminating questions unless the wit
ucss was a voluntary one.
The case was Uien given to the jury nnd
they retired. After a hort absence they
returned and reftorted that they could not
agree upon h verdict They ngaiu retired
to refonidcr the ca.c and returned at 10
o'clock with a verdict. They found that
Lord Colin Campbell had nut commhtrd
adultery, and that Lndy Colin had not
committed adultery with any of the ro
respondent. 'The jury added a rider that
the conduct of Gen Butler qi unworthy
of a gentleman tint! an officer, and had
catiwd the only difficulty which the jury

announcement of the verdict wa received
