VICTORY FOR HAND LABOR
The Commissioners Award the
Street Sweeping Contracts.
LIKE THE "WHITE WING:
Diifffrett and Dugan, the Successful
Bidders, Will Employ an Increased
Force of Men and Some Slde
Swet'iilng Machine- Attorney
The Commissioners yesterday awarded
the contract for sweeping the streets, ave
nues and alleys or the city for the ensu
,1ns two years to Messrs. Albert Daggett
and Michael A. Dugan. The prices to be
paid will be 32 cents per 1,000 square
yards for all work done by hand labor ex
clusively and 24 1-lcentsper 1,000 square
yards for sweeping by side machines and
The Commissioners had hesitated in mat
ing the award for some days on account
of the question whether they had the
authority to accept the bids of Messrs.
. Daggett and Dugan, which were much
higher than some oUiers. The other bid
ders all were to use "pick up'' machines
and the Commissioners did not want to
make the experiment for the reason that
they found from an exhaustive investiga
tion made by Commissioners Wight and
Black that these machines would nor do
the work satisfactorily. They paid sev
eral vsits to New York while the contract
was pending to study the methods in use
there, anJ the result was that their de
termination to have the work done by
hand labor as far as their limited appro
priation would permit became mors fixed
The board has always favored Jhc hand
labor method for the reason that, in its
opinion, many idle men could find employ
ment, and this was one of the potent
reasons why thj selection was finally
made. There was a question as to the
authority of the Commissioners to award
the contract to separate bidders, and the
attorney for the District was called upon
Jor an opinion, which was received yes
Mr. Thomas, after a review of the law,
Expressed the opinion that the Commis
eSouers had full power to select separate
Wdders, and Immediately on receipt of the
letter the board went Into session and
awarded the contract as stated above.

The contractors will be required, under
the new methods, to sweep many of the
business stree s and avenues exclusively
by hand, and a force of uniformed men will
be kept at work constantly between tile
hours of 8 a. m. and 4 p, m. They will
use the same methods now applied by the
"white wing" bilgade in New York city,
and will be equipped with bags and small
hand-carts and other receptacles for the
storage of 6weeplugs, to be hauled away
each evening by carts. On the lemainlng
streets and avenues in the residence sec
tion the side-sweeping machines will be
used, and In addition they will be followed
by gangs of sweepers whose duty It Khali
be to sweep out the depressions and gutters
that cannot be reached by the fclde-s weepers.
Under this new clause in the specifica
tions t'ie streets will be kept much cleaner
and a larger force of men will be necessary
than under ttie old system. The contract
for cleaning the alleys of the city will
be let later.
The Idea of the board was to expend as
much of the appropriations allotted for
street cleaning in the use of hand labor
as practicable, and out of the $140,000
appropriated fully $100,000 will be ex
pended tn the city, and the remaining

KILLED HIS SON-IN-LAW.
A Girl "Wronged, u False Accusa
tion, and a Tragedy.
Knoxville, Tcnn., June 11. Capt. George
Tillett, a veteran of the Union Army,
walked eighteen miles into the city this
morning, and gave himself up to the
sheriff. He had killed his son-in-law, John
Glenn. Both men are well-to-do, and their
families aie much respected.
About the shooting 'of Glenn a strange
story attaches. Capt. Tillett has raised
a large family and adopted one of his
grand-daughters who had lost her mother.
She is now a beautiful girl or eighteen.
John Glenn, her uncle by marriage, accused
Tillett of having corrupted the girl.
Tillett was enraged ad took the girl
before a justice, and she swore that Glenn
himself had seduced her.
This morning the old soldier saw Glenn
and shot hint down with a double-ban eled
gun. Then he tramped into the city and
gave himself up. , v.

The Pair heirs recently came Into posses
sion of a contract by which Mrs. Craven
promised to give 5 per cent of all the prop

AVhat makes this contract more significant
Is that Aiken was one of the chief wit

In couit today. Lawyer AVheeier spent
several hours laboriously extracting from
Mr, Craxeu admissions that t.ho had made

effect that the cruiser New Ycrk sailed

The Naval officials say that Admiral
Sicard, by virtue of his position, has a
right to move without orders any essel
to anyport within the limits of hiscommand
at any time he may deem proper. He
some time ago concluded to take the New
York to Hampton Roads, where the ex
pense is much lighter than it is at Boston.
He notified the Eureau of Navigation
that he would sail for Hampton Roads
last Monday, hut the bad weather caused
him to delay leaving port, inasmuch as
there was no hurry.
Secretary Long was also anxious to re
duce expenses and to have the New York at
Hampton Roads as soon as possible, and
Wednesday he telegraphed to learn If the
New York had sailed, Tor he had receivedno
report to that effect. Admiral Sicard re
plied that the New York was still at Boston
watting for the bad weather to subside, and
that as sooa as it did he would sail, and he
At the bureau of navigation the glowing
descriptions of the great preparations for
a long -voyage that had been made by the
New York afforded much amusement be
cause of the ignorance displayed by the
writer. The officers said that the New
York's preparations were precisely the
same as any vessel would make whether
gomgto Hampton Roads or to Gibraltar.
The vessel was previously coaled and all
her launches were placed on board; noth
ing more than would be done if she were
going for a day's cruise The New York
will remain at Hampton Roads about two
weeks, and will then go North again. She
will, during the time, go to Newport News
for additional coal.
When Secretary Long was asked about
the report he positively declared that rhe
New York was not going to Cuba, and was
not going to cruise about the coast of New
Jersey or Delaware, further than the fail
needed to take the vessel to Hampton

PASSES BY A NARROW MARGIN
Mr. Caffery Shows That the Sched

nually to the Trust Mr. White
Indicts the Republicans Out of
Their Own Mouths. -
The test vot on the sugar schedule was
taken In the Senate shortly before 5 o'clock
yesterday arternoou. It wasonthe amend
ment proposed in the recent Republican
caucus making the differential on sugar
0.05 cent a pound instead of 0.S7D. The
opinion was expressed by Democrats that
this mount a sheer gift to the Sugar
Trust of anything from S12.000.000 to
$20,000,000. This caucus amendment, it
should be understood, gives more to the
trust than the Dingley bill, the Seuato
amendment, and, of course, than the Wil

Ihe oeiate was opened by Mr Jones,
who had sent to the clerk's desk certaia
lettere and statements, to which he re
ferred in delate on Thursday He also
presented a table showing the dif
ference hetween raw and refined sugar
ur.de r the Wihon bill, and under the
present prepared amendments; also a table
shewing the differences between the Ding
ley hill, the Wilson bill, and the rresenb
amendments. One of the comparisons ws

and by the pending schedule, 33 7-10; an
other was at 00; Wilson bill, 13 0-1 ; pro
posed amendment, 52 1-10.
Mr Caffery resumed his argument, In
troducing bulky documents relating to
stock, etc., of the sugar trust as a part
of his remarks.
Mr. Caffery asked Mr. Allison If he could
jiroduce any statement from Treasury
officials to show how many pounds of
raw sugar it required to make lOOpoundd
or refined sugar.
Mr. Allison did not have any to produce,
but he believed that the tables received
In the Senate had been prepared on in
formation furnished fro.n Treasury ex
perts. Mr. Carrerysald thatit was well known
that the secrets were known only to the
sugar trust. They had refused them to
census officials, giving only what the
trust d"-ired to have printed.
Mr. Caffery demonstrated the result of
thi"in a statement in which he showed that
the Treasury figures indicated thatit took
125 27-100 pounds of raw sugar, at S7
test, to make a hundred pounds of refined.
On the contrary, he showed that it re
quired only 114 14-100 pounds, the dif
ferenccof eleven pounds of raw sugar beiajj
in favor of the trust.
He made the Interesting remark, based
on data, that the trust had already Im
ported an excess over the usual amount
sufficient to supply the trade for six
months, the Inference being that the trust
thought the comingleglslptlon a good tiling.
He also showed that, notwithstanding the
claims of the Sugar Trust for favors, ita
percentage of labor cost wasonly 1 5G-100.
and.Jncluding salines, was only 1 78-100
on the profit. It was no wonder that Mr.
Jones, of Arkansas changed his mind on
the poinf as to whether a differential was
needed to sustahTthe trust.
Mr. Caffery read a long statement from
the Staats-Zeitung to show that the least
possible differential, taking all things intd
consideration, would be 4G-100, and
that it meant $20,000,000 profit on the
This was for the only trust In the world
sustained by a government. But now
was the time to refuse Its demand If It
were shown that It did not need this
differential. HeheldtuattheSenatei lqulry
Into sugar scandals In 1894 was a political
matter. If it was not why should there
be one now, when the differential is
greater than It was under the Wilson
bill. He was not personal In hi? attack
on the trust, but opposed it oo behalf
of the consumer.
Mr. Caffeiy thought that 38-100 dif
ferential was sufficient.
Mr. Piatt That Is equal to the German

Mr. Caffery said that the trust was, ot
all Industries, the most able to take cara
of itself, aud besides the 38-100 would
stand as protection. Mr Caffery re
peated that a duty on sugar was tlie Ideal
Democratic duty for revenue only; and on
that ground he would sustain a duty
on sugar But If it were for protection he
wouldnot supportlt. nehadbeen charged
with personal interest In legislation. On
the contrary, he had no interest whatever
In the Caffery Company He only owned
500 acres of land and made last year only
700,000 pounds of sugar. Hj; did not
think that any Senator with personal
interests in legislation could houorably sit
in the Souate chamber.
Mr White addressed the Senate, begin
ning by reminding the Republicans of their
change of bate They first held that sugar
should be free, aud now they were the
other way. Mr. Piatt ot Connecticut, for
instance, .said in 1804 that the proposed
legislation ra'sed sugar stocks 15 ronts
The same criticism could be made of the
caucus amendment In 1894 the Republi
cans held that the only remedy for the
sugar industry was a bounty He quoted
in this connection Senators Gall'nger aud
Sherman, thelatter saying that a dlCferen,
tial wns an outrage. Such authorities aro

that a duty would "enrich a mouopoly

"Untaxed sugar" was what the Republican
party crv: they are now levying a greater
