obdurate. Amid great excitement he
ordered all tbe gentlemen to take their

motion to refer the message and the ac

A RUNAWAY TRAIN.
A Terrible Itaee on the Colon Paclfle to
Save a Tninload of Passengers.
The Union Pacific fast mail had a nar
row escape one night recently on the
Wyoming division from being crashed
into by a runaway freight. The fast
mail was booming along near Simpson
and following it was a heavy freight
train in charge of Engineer Sadowsky.
Striking a heavy grade there the freight
gave a lurch forward and Sadowsky,
who is c new'engineer, lost control of
the engine. In a few minutes he saw
the lights of the rear of the mail and
fearing a collision jumped from the en
gine, followed by the fireman.
The conductor end brakemen, realiz
ing that something was wrong, began
applying the brakes. The operator at a
email station, when the two trains dashed
by, saw that the engine waa running
away and telegraphed the fact to Medi
cine Bow. When the faat mail stopped
there to register, the operator rushed out
and told of the runaway train.
Engineer Wright, with great presence
of mind, sprang for his engine and
opened the throttle wide, and there en
dued a mad race, which for a time threat
ened to end in a frightful tragedy. Con
ductor Rapp of the freight finally man
aged to crawl over into the engine and
soon brought the runaway to a stop, and
by his prompt action prevented what
would have been an awful wreck.

young man lias lust his memory, and the

injury sustained by being struck by a
heavy piece of iron which was thrown
by a stationary engine. Tho skull was
fractured, and a largo part of it was

TARIFF REFORM ON THE BOARDS
The Wilson Bill Reported to
An Elaborate Report Accompanying:
Tho Protective System Denounced, bnt
Mot to Be Abolished at One
Fall Swoop - The Su,-»r
By the A»=o-iatfd Press.
Washington, Dee. 19.—Tbe majority
report ol tbe ways and means committee
on the tariff bill was submitted to the
house at the opening today. The re
"The American people, after a full
and the most thorough debate ever
given by a people to their Cecal policy,
deliberately decided that the existing
tariff wps wrong in principle and griev
ously unjust in operation. They have
decided, as free men must always de
cide, that the power of taxation has no
lawful or constitutional exercise except
for providing revenue for the support of
the government. Every departure
from this principle ii a departure
from tbe fundameutel principles
o! free institutions and inevitably
works out a gross inequality in the citi
-1 zenahip oi the couutry. For more than
SO years we have levied the largest part
of our federal taxes in violation oi this
.vital truth, until we have reached the
existing tariff and extreme and volum
inous system oi class taxation, to which
history may be challenged to furnish a
I parallel. So many private enterprises
have been taken into partnership with
the government; co many private in
terests now share in tbe rich prerogative
of taxing seventy million people, that
any attempt to dissolve this illegal
union is necessarily encountered by op
position tbat rallies behind tbe intoler
ance of monopoly, tbe power of concen
trated wealth, the inertia of fixed habits
end honest errors ol a generation of false
"The bill on which tbe committee
has expended mucb patient and anxious
labor, is not offered as a complete
response to tbe mandate of the Ameri
can people. It no more professes to be
purged of all protection than to be free
of all error in its complex manifold de
tails. However w* msy deny the exis
tence of any legislative pledge or of the
'. right of any congress to make such a
; pledge for the continuance of
i duties that carry with them
| more or less acknowledged pro
■ taction, we must recogniza teat
' great interests do exist whose existence
| and prosperity it is no part of our in
form either to imperil or curtail. \Ve
' believe, and have the warrant of cur
past experience for believing, that the
reduction of duties will not injure, but
give mora abundant life to all our great
manufacturing industries, however
much tbsy may dread the change.
' in dealing wita the tariff question, as
' with every other long-standing abuse
tbat has interwoven itself with our
social or industrial system, the legis
lator must always remember that in the
beginning temperate reform is safest,
having in itself the principle of growth.
A glance at the tariff' legislation of our
own country ought to satisfy every in
telligent student that protection h*s
always shewn its falsity aa a system
of economy by its absolute failure
to afford healthy and stable prosperity
to manufacturers. It teaches men to
depend on artificial help; on laws tax
ing tbeir countrymen ior prosperity in
business, rather than upon their owu
skill and effort. It throws businees out
of its natural channels into artificial
channels,in which there nimtalwaye be
fluctuation and uncertainty, «nJ makes
the tariff system a football of party
politics, and the stability of taiga buai
' ness interests the stake of every popu
'■ lar election. None have recogmzsd this
more fully than the wis* men wljo have
frcm time to time engaged in ths so
called protected industries."
The report then deals at length with
tbe tariff history of the country, show
ing that when first pronisf-d the manu
facturers opposed it, and desired to be
let alone. Once in, however, the pro
tected industries asked for more and
more protection. Finally came the re
vulsion of 184ti, when the tariff waß re
duced against protests by manufacturers
that it would ruin them, and against the
solid vote of the representatives of the
manufacturing states in congress. The
result of that low tariff was a develop
ment of great vigor in manufactures, with
steady emptoymeut and incraaeini wages
for labor. Alter eleven years' trial, the
representatives of those same states,
with practical unanimity, voted for a
further reduction of 20 per cent, and by a
two-thirds rote sustained a 26 per cent
reduction. Under the tariff of 1857,
ths people were so well satisfied with
it that there wee a pretest agains'. the
Morrill bill of 1801, increasing duties.
The report quotas from a number of
| speeches in congress against the Morrill
< bill, among them toe from Sherman of
Ohio, and continues:
"Under Republican auspices there
has been a constant increase iv duties
nt the demand of manufacturers. The
! present bill, while framed in no spirit cf
j unfriendliness to manufacturers, io
! framed on the theory that it is the duty
lof congress, not the right of mauuiac
turers, to fix its terms."
i In answer to the criticism about re
ducing the revenues at a time when the
;:overnment is in financial straits, tbo
report says: "The committee w«3 com
peiled, in deference to teat feet, to not
put en Ihe tree list some articles which
it would have been glad to
make free, nnd not to cut other
rates as low as desirable; but the
f.'tr.raittee did not feel justified
in l/noring the instructions of the
American poople on acconnt of a tem
porary shrinkage of revenues. Experi
ence i'iowb that the increase of basinr-so
will largely make up tha lose from tbe
The report declares tbat the reciproci
ty clause of the tariff act of IB9U has
brought no appreciable benefits, and
the prase-1 bill aims, therefore, to re
peal it entirely.
Ths report then proceeds to deal at
length and seriatim with the leadin*
articles of the schedule, aud the rea
! r.ons which actuated the committee iv
j fixing tbe rate of duty or in placing
' : it m on the free list.
The report says: "We bolieve tha
eager bounty system is contrary to tbe
spirit of our institutions and can con
ceive no circumstances under which we
nhould hays advocated or approved its
introduction into our laws. We heve
reported a provision for its repeal by
euch stages as s&atlferaduaify obliterate
iit from our lawe.'whiie permitting those
who have invested large means, nnder
ths expectation of its continuance,
reasonable time in which they may
prepare to take a stand with other in
dustries of the country.
"Tbe duties upon imported tobacco
leaf, auitabl* for clear wrappers, which
were enormously advanced by tbe act of
1890, have been placed at such figures
as war* deemed likely to produce tha
moat revenue to tbe treaaury.
"Of tha staple agricultural products,
including meats and provisiooe,
we are such large exporters and
must continue to be, that any duties
upon tham are useless for protection
and fruitless for rsvenue, for tbe pro
ducers of our great export staples,
which, having fully supplied the home
market, must overflow and eeek lamer
purchasera elsewhere. The only effect
of a protective tariff is to take away
from them one-fourth to one-half tbe
products for which they could exchange
their surplus in the open market.
"Upon the larger sizes of plateglass,
whore the duties were even higher, we
have made a reduction of about one

ginning with free ore and a duty of 21J«
per cent on pig iron, we have reduced
the scale of dutiea considerably balow
those af the existing law, graduated ac
cording to tba degree of manufacture.
"The duty upon atsel rails hae been
put at 25 psr cent. There aasme to be
an authentic report that tbe pool of
American rail-mskers which, under the
aheltar of the present duty, $13 44 per
ton, haa kept up prices to the American
consumer far beyond the coat of
i production and legitimate profits,
j has been re-organized to continue
I the regulation of prices above
the proper market rates. Aa all ahip
pers, and especially American shippers,
are vitally interested in cheapening the
coat of transportation, the rates of duty
upon eteel nub should be adjusted co as
to protect thfm from monopoly pricea
and monopoly combinations.
"Upon tin plate the duty haa been
gauged with reference to the revenue it
j will bring into the treasury, and the

abroad, is in competition with the cheap
labor oi India and Egypt.

Robert Ramsay, a fcrraer resident of
this city, was with Somerset throughout
the trip, and will join him in England

"We suffered great hardships while
living on horseflesh. After beinrr driven
to starving point we killed one of our
horses aud roasted the meat bef ore a fire.
It didn't *a3to bad under the circum
