-The proceedings of the Senate Tjegan
Interestingly yesterday with a -nail from
the catty Senator from Maine that ho
und all other other honest Senators be
protected from the guile and wiles of
gentlemen who learned the arts of Uie
lobbyist curing their terms as Uui'rd
States Senators. The naive arguments
on' this question by Senator Hale and the
equally naive question of Senator Haw
ley? Indicating that If Mr. Hale knew
anything aloiit ex-Senatora lobbying he
ought to tell about lr, amubed the gal
leries. Mr. Hale's amendment practically
lb that lr any cx-Scnator talks loud enough
In -the Senate chamber to be overheard
lobbying with any active Senator, the
former will be or ought to be ejected by
the sergeant-at-anus. How effective the
amendment will be, even if passed, may
be learned from that consideration.
Some years ago Mr. Allen Intioduced
a resolution which would have prevented
the seduction of any Senator from the
straight path which leads through the
needle's eye gate, by providing that the
beguilets and seducers be kept away from
the Capitol altogether. This was not
considered, possibly because it was a
reflection on the will power of Senators.
Now, however, that all legislation has
been put In shape, and the lobbyists Uave
finished their business preparatory to
leaving town for the summer resorts, Air.
Hale introduces his startling amendment.
Another feature of the proceedings was
the attack Mr. Gray made on the wool-
glowers of "Wyoming, and the reply of Mr.
WtMTcn, of that State.
Perhaps the most convincing part of the
debate was the Arguments of Messrs. Jones,
of Arkansas, Vest and Gray, showing that
manufacturers had so managed the bill
that the will receive compensation for
tarirfs which they will not pay. and that
In other cases these manufacturers will re
ceive compensation for mixed fabrics which
may be nine-tenths cotton on an all wool
The Republicans said but a few words
yesterday. Mr. Hoar had been suppreviOd.
He ventured to ask Mr. Gray a question.
Mr. Gray asked him to repeat It, but Mr
Hoar declined, bo Mr. Gray had to let
The proceedings opened with the Hale
amendment, seeking to exclude cx-Sena-torial
lobbyists from the floor.
Mr. Hale, after stating the amendment,
said: "It 6eeks to provide that ex-Senators
shall not abuse their privileges; or, in
other words, to lobby with members of the
Senate. It has never been necessary until
now to invoke the aid ot any rule Mich as I
have Indicated, or the exten.Mon of the
limitations ot the present rules. The
House of Representatives has had for years
such a ruleas is comprehended in theamend
meut I propoMj; and I have embodied its
features substantially in the amendment
which is uiged here.
"It Is, of course, a matter of pleasure
and satisfaction for us to renew acquaint
ance and associations with geptiemenwho
have been members of this body; but I do
not thiuk it compatible with the self-respect
and dignity of. this body that the
privileges of the floor be used for the pur
pose of urging or opposing the passage of
measures before the Senate by gentlemen
who have been members of the body, if
there are no such gentlemen, the amend
ment will not apply to anybody nndwilido
bo harm. I am afraid, however, that the
time has come when such a rule isueeded.''
Mr. Hawley desired to know how the
amendment would be applied.
Mr. Hale said that he had not indicated
tbo exact form in which it could be done;
"but," said he, "I think I have seen
enough to justify me in calling the atten
tion of the Senate to the matter, and that
the amendment be referred to the Commit
tee on Rules."
Mr. Allen wished to know what had re
cently taken place to call for this amend
ment. Mr. Hale I hope the gentleman from Ne
braska will not ask me that.
Mr. Allen then proceeded to show that
the amendment had been thought to be
necessary long ago. "Three years ago,"
he said, "I had a bill referred to the Com
mittee on Judiciary, making it a crime,
punishable by imprisonment in the peniten
tiary for any one to ply the vocation of a
lobbyist." Mr. Allen called attention to
the fact that at that time there was going
on the railroad pooling bill and it could
not escape the attention ot the Senate that
lobbying was going on in the preparation
of tariff bills.
Mr. Hale said he was notin favorof such
a drastic measure as that proposed by Mr.
Allen. 11 chad ratherlu view calling the at
tention of the Senate to thewrong.and hav
ing it remedied. All Senators, he believed,
were opposed to the importunities of the
lobby. "I think I will be borne out by
Senators when I say that these impor
tunities, whether on the floor or elsewhere,
are of no avalliu thcinterest of any claim.
The Senator from Nebraska himself will
Mr. "White Will it not be found in prac
tice a very difficult matter to limit the
character of the conversation ot ex-Senators
who have come on the floor? The
practice referred to by the Senator from
Maine is very reprehensible, but I don't
think it will be overcome by any legislative
Tdr. nale "Well, let the means be jc
ferred to the Committee on Rules I don't
think Jt will be denied that the practice
is offensive to Senators.
M. Allen suld that there was no doubt of
the presence of many lobbyists. "We can't
go out here into the corridors at any time
when the Senate is in session without run
ning up against an army of them. They
haunt theso halls and galleries. I would
exclude them not only from the Capitol
building, but from the Capitol grounds."
The amendment was referred to the
Committee on Rules.
The routine business in the Senate to
day, after Mr. ilalc's lobbyist resolution
had been referred, was very brief, in
cluding a few resolutions and petitions.
v Mr. White asked to have reprinted a
document relating to Hawaii, with special
reference to the last census ot the islands.
) Mr. Test desired to know from Mr. Alli
son in what order the schedules would be
Mr. Allison said that at tsr the wool sched
ule would come the silk, and then the to
bacco. Mr. Smith of New Jersey wanted the
hides schedule taken up out of order. The
request Is under advisement by the .Finance
Ur. white, sarcastically referring to the
bill, Incidentally described It, In the lan
guage of Senator Hnnna reported from
Cleveland, to the effect that It was the
most perfect and scientifically constructed
bill La the history of the civilized world.
1 Mr. White did not ditpute the state
ment; specifically, but everyone smiled
at the description.
Mr. Carrery-theu got up and said: "Mr.
President, l now propose to make a lew
remarks on the pending bill," which
statement amused the Senators aud Mr.
CarTery himself. He first examined tariff
doctrine in the abstract and then replied
to the new Democratic principles enun
ciated recently in the chamber. His
general reply was: "Precedent and priu
ciplu alike refute these propositions. Vet
eran Democrats, who were boru and will
die wtlh true Democratic faith in their
nnud und hearts, repudiate them. They
look upon them as an effort to crucify
their creed. And, like the Christian who
embraces the imagj of his crucified Savior
aB the last hour of mortality approaches,
so will they embrace aud cling with a
love and faith which no sophistry can
destroy und no temptation betray the
ancient doctrine of tariff for revenue
only as the nearest approach to that
free trade hoped for by the Democratic
party. Is it possible that we denounce
plunder only to Join the plunderers?
That we point to the straight aud honest
path of Democratic duty only, and then
tread the primrose path of Republican
wickedness? That we ;abhor sin and Join
Mr. Caffrey's speech was a general re
view of tariff legislation from the early
times to the present; and covered in great
measure a great many considerations which
have already been presented to the Senate.
A very interesting part ot his contention
was the exhibit showing tliat from 1847
to 1S90 practically, wool prices were
higher under free trade on that material
than since 1890 under a tariff. Brave
words aiid many words have been spoken
alout piofcperlty, but it cannot come by
law, but by trade, which the other side
is trying to destroy.
"To sum up, I believe in a tariff .on
luxuries. I believe in an Income tax. I
believe in a tariff on imports, to be pluced
eololyln the coffers of the Government and
not in the pockets ot private individuals.
I do not believe in protection, save for
the citizen, as to hlb inherent and constitu
tional lights and liberties." (Applause.)
Mr. Jones, of Arkansas, continued his
argument on section 3C3, he haing moved
to ins-ert the words "where wool Is the
chief component," instead of "In part of
wool." As Hie law stands it will give
a fabric the benefit of a tariff on wool
even if it contained only a small part of
wool. Even in tlio case where a fabric
was one-half cotton and one-half wool. It
was unjust to give the compensation as If
It were all wool. And so when the bill
proposes to extend full compensation in
cjies where there was only one-tenth wool
the outrage was more apparent. Tills
plain matter of fact could not be denied
01 evaded. Mr. Jones said it was fraud
and tiic other tide knewit.
Mr. Alllsou did not attempt to reply Mid
permitted the rolll to be called without
On Mr. Jones motion to have the duty
regulated with reference to the component
of chief value the vote was yeas 23, nays
Tlii.s was undoubtedly the most flagrant
steal in the bill, aud none of its injustices
waf more definitely proven.
Mr. Jones renewed his amendment as
to the next fcctlon, his idea being that
duties shall be laid on the components of
a fabric equitably.
Mr. Allbon said that he did not propose
to have foreign wool introduced in fabrics
under the guhe of wcol. "He said thai.it
was practically impossible to determine the
relative components of a wool-cotton
Mr. Jones asked how did the framers
of the Mil hold the exact reverse in the
sill: and flax schedule.
Mr. Alli.'ou said that the cases were
different because in the wool-cotton fabric
It would be necessary to determine the
relative weights of the comronenta.
Mr. Jones said that the same must be
true of all mixed imported goods; to which
Mr. Allis-on said that Mr. Jones merely
differed from all the other experts. The
roll was called on Mr. Jones' motion and
resultcil, yeas 22, nays 28.
Mr. Jones then moved that the specific
duties on wcol shall not go into effect
until twelve months after the passage of
the bill. Mr. Allison, hesaid, had admitted
there was now n twelve months' supply
ot wool in the country, and it was unfair
to give compensation to manufacturers for
wool on which no tariff had been paid.
Mr. Vest said that the arguments of Mr.
Jones were unanswerable. The compen
satory duty was a simple gratuity to the
manufacturers. It was a robbery under
the form of law.
Mr. Piatt said there was nothing to show
that this year's bupply ot wool was In
the hands of the manufacturers. It was
possibly in the hands of speculators.
Mr. Caffery reminded Mr. Piatt that Mr.
Aldrich had 6tated that they did not ex
pect any great revenue from wool for
about two years.
Mr. White said it was not likely that
the wool manufacturers were so blind to
their own Interests that they had not
bought wool in advance.
Mr. Mills said that Mr. Piatt's theory
was rather a creation of his imagination.
As a matter of fact, the manufacturers do
their own buying through very high-priced
Mr. Allen made a speech, in which he
said that the United States Senate was
acting In a very Juvenile way by con
suming time In the splitting of hairs and
the discussion of greasy wool. The bill,
he said, would fail in its object; and if
things were carried out to their logical
conclusion, with greenbacks - and legal
tender notes retired, there must be in the
end an extension of the taxing power, and
the final submission of the country to the
jackals, the manufacturers, the bankers,
and the railway corporations. "The bill,"
he said, "will fall short of producing the
required revenue. I want to see that the
body of honest American citizens who
believe there is something in the tariff
Issue leam from bitter experience If they
can't learn It otherwise that the tariff
is a delusion and a snare; and that the only
question f or th e A merican people to decide

Government is to survive is the question

I am perfectly willing to walk into this
chamber occasionally and vote on the
schedules, but I do not know what course
I shall pursue on the final disposition of
The vote on Mr. Jones' amendment
was ayes IS, nays 28. Lost.
Mr. Jones moved that the compensa
tory duty be reduced one-third. The vote
was taken -without argument and le
sulted: Teas, 19; nays, 6; to the amend
ment was lost.
Mr. Jones renewed his fight on all the
paiagraphs relating to blankets and flan
nels, "not with a view of making an
impression on Ephraim, who is Joined
to his idols, but to keep the record
Mr. White read from Mr. Sherman's
reminiscences to show how personal and
sectional Interests controlled previous
taiilf legislation. History, said Mr.
"White, is repeating itself.
Mr. JoneB' amendments were defeated
Mr. Vest moved lo liave the Wilson bill

Mr. Pettigrew introduced an anti-trust
amendemnt to the bill.
When the paragraphs on women's and
children's dress goods were reached, Mr.
Vest showed that the taxes ranged from
80 per cent to 135 per cent- He moved
to substitute the Wilson bill rates.
Mr. Gray said that the increased taxes

every household. There were compensa
tion taxes for everybody dealing in the
goods except the woman who buys them.
He illustrated his remarks by exhibiting
two samples, one of French canhmere
and another of German henriettu The
present price of the former is 18 1-2 cents
per yard; under the proposed law it will
bo 28 1-2 cents. The present price ot
henrietta is 25 cents; the future price
57 cents Mr. Gray didn't know exactly
how many yards of these things it took
to make a dress, but Senator Faulkner
promptly supplied the information. Mr.
White also exhibited a flaming piece of
French serge. Mr. White said that he
could shake that kind of a rag at the
other side only at the risk of breaking
up the session.
Mi. Warren said that every one of the
ai titles exhibited by Mr. Gray could be
manufactured in the United States, and
that competition would keep the prices
down, as it docs on all manufactured
articles. Mr. Warren was in favor of a
prohibitory duty on all things which could
bo manufacture;! In Uie United States. He
would state that the price of goods never
depended for any length of time on the
Mr. Gray said that the fact that the
price of raw wool decreased under a tariff
contradicted the position assumed by Mr.
Warren. He further argued that there
was no end to the exactions of the tariff.
He challenged Mr. Warren to tell him one
instance in which protected industries ever
said they had enough. .He asked Mr. War
ren if he expected the tariff to Increase
the price of the wool to the grower.
Mr. Warren said it would.
Ho ttien asked Mr. Gray If the wnoi
grower gets a higher price and the man
ufacturer gets a higher price how can it
be argued that there will be no rise in
price to the consumer.
Mr. Gray and Mr. Warren had a warm
colloquy, lxth talking at times at the
same moment. Neither admitted that the
other had proved anything. Mr. Gray
said In conclusion that there was no other
constiuclion to be placed on the present
wool schedule than that 1 1 involved a wool
growcrj;' trust, a wool manufacturers' trust
and all under the approval ot law. Mr.
Warren, he said, was contending for a
tariff to protect sheep ot his great State,
which roamed at will, and which had, in
that respect, an advantage over the sheep
ot other sections.
Mr. Warren asked leave to have printed
in the Record certain statistics to disprove
the position of Mr. Gray.
Mr. Jones also had submitted tables to
maintain what Mr. Gray had argued.
Mr. Jones also exhibited a lot of dress
goods samples and showed the Increase of
price for them under the new tariff. Iu
each case he showedthattliemanufocturers
were to get a compensatory duty without
paying a tariff on the raw material. It
was plain iobbery. He could not find a
polite word. The compensatory duties In
some cases, he said, were equal to the
price abroad, and In some cases more, but
in all cases about 100 per cent. Mr Jones
selected a coarse cloth costing 41 cents, on
which he showed that the compensatory
duty would be 44 cents.
" The development of the country, he said,
offered no excuse for it being considered an
infant, as we need more raw material of all
kinds. It needed no protection, but a fair
field for work and opportunity.
The voto was then taken on Mr. Vest's
motion, audit resulted, yeas, 22; nays, 30.
The motion was lost.
Mr. Vest moved to substitute the Wil
son bill provisions for the proposed law
on ready made clothing. Lost; yeas, 20;
His amendment to substitute the Demo
cratic tariff for the proposed tax on web
bings, gorlngs, flounces, etc , was also
defeated, as were a few other paragraphs
toward the close of the wool schedule,
which will be disposed of today.

MULLAN TRIAL ENDED.
Sentence Passed by the Court, bnt
Its Nature Not Known.
The Mullan court martial came to an
end yesterday nnd the record ot the pro
ceedings ot the court and the sentence
passed by it upon Commander Mullan are
now at the Navy Department.
The decision ot the court could not be
learned from any member of it, thougn
one of its members inadvertently admitted
that the court pabsed sentence upon the
accused. This officer, when asked what
bad been done by the court, said:
"It met, passed sentence and approved
the record of yesterday."
The last pages of the record were trans
mitted to the Secictary of the Navy yes
It is a voluminous document, and will
require consideiable time before the de
partment announces its approval or dis
approval of the findings. The friends of
the commander express themselves as
confident ct an acquittal, and others, who
are not prejudiced by f ilendship, say that
a conviction lias been found.
Until after the Judge advocate general
has carefully examined the record and
forwaided it to Acting Secretary Roose
velt, the findings of the court will be
kept secret. It may be that the matter
will be referred to Secretary Long, who
will return from Boston about July 1.

The World of Business,
Wall Street Yesterday.
New York, June 24. Prices in the Etock
market today advanced steadily, and a
daily higher average is established. Since
the turn in the market began, there has
becu a pronounced dearth of news ot auy
kind to which the advance could be
definitely ascribed, unless the progress of
the tariff revision,; the growth of the
crops, and the trade revival be held suf
ficient by those taking the largebt part
In the speculation, aud the burden of
proof that they arc not so has been
shifted upon the advocates of a reaction.
Today's market was strong and fairly
active, with interest again most largely
exprcssedin the granger shares. Favorable
developments were furnished by the agree
ment of the Trunk Line Association to re
store westbound rates, and the statement
ot the St. Paul Company for the third
week ot June, showing the largest earn
iugs for the period since 1893. Foreign
dealings in tho market were not on a largo
scale, the arbitrages houses buying at
the opening and laler celling as much or
more. A further spirited advance in
Chicago Gas and -Northwestern followed.
Iiook Inland, and Rurli gton and Quincy
aUo showed decided strength in antici
pation of favorable statements for the
month ot May.
The strength of the anthracite coalers
with the general list. Among the special
ties Bay State Gas advanced on the set
tlement of the various litigations between
different classes of security holders and an
increasing interest was apparent in Ore
gon Short Line and other lower prices
stocks. Firmness was manifested at the
New Torlc Stock 3farltet.

The reaction did not tjmc yesterday,
and, in fact, prices went up. It was notice
able, however, that transactions were
upon a decidedly small scale, nothing like
the fine business of the last few weeks.
The trading afforded evidence, too, that
outside business is not growing as rapidly
as could be desired. There are evidences
of this kind in plenty that the market
will go down iu a short time, on amiost
any day, in fact.
One ot the features of yesterday's busi
ness was an erratic strength shown by
Bay State Gas, a stock which moved Jn
paths of its own unhampered by any of
the laws which govern the rest of the
Avorld. It was rumored in the street that
the Standard Oil interests were taking up
Bay State Gas, too. It ib ala reiterated
of this stock that all litigaton has been
fcettled. The story about the Standard
Oil people and Chicago Gas may be true.
I believeanythinglhearabout the Standard
Oil people until it it disproven. The sug
gestion is that the Standard Oil interests
will offer the income bondholders of the
Bay State Gas CO for their bondd.
The Town Topics Financial Bureau says
ot New Jersey Central: There is quite au
extensive outstanding short interest in the
coal stocks. TheinsldersinXew Jersey Cen
tral believe that this specialty will sell,
above 00 between this and the pajment
of the July dividend, action on widen
will be taken a week from next Monday.
The bears have persistently attacked Jersey
Central, and much ot the recent selling has
been for short account. The market shows
that any effort to buy the brock simply
discloses that long holdings are not for
sale Jersey, Delaware and Hudson, and
Incidentally the Reading issues may be
bought; they are on the uptack and will
sell very high, and Joseph Is one of the
most accurate of the guessers.
An expert on Burlington says that the
statement of that road for May should
be excellent, lie says that, at the present
rate, the stock will earn 8 per cent this
Sugar held up well yesterday, closing
above opening figures, and strong all
day. The expected spurt does not come,
however, as soon as was hoped for The
idea seems to be that the insiders are
holding the stock down until they are
safely through with, the tariff people.
Mclntyrc & Wardwcll.Xo. 1420 F street,
in their daily Chicago grain letter, say of
wheat: The erratic action of the July
future was the feature to wheat again to
day. It opened a cent higher, advanced
to 70 1-2, then sold oft a cent. This was
followed by a sharp rally to 70 1-2. An
opinion on the culmination of this future
would be simply a guess. There is no
Questioning the favorable opportunity ..hat
exists to manipulate July wheat, provid
ing the short interest in large enough to
warrant it. So far as the cash situation
is concerned premiums are gradually lessen
ing and crop conditions are very favorable.
Winter wheat has Improved and only flat
tering Teports are received from thcspring
wheat. Liverpool was steady , with a gain
ot l-2d. for the day. Northwest re
ceipts, 231 cars. Clearances light, 190,
000 bushels. Roumania advices are that
that crop has received further damage
from excessive rains. There was falrly
good buying of September by a leading
commission house. There were 35,000
cash taken by millers and 80,000 Laid to
have been worked for export. The latter
we are unable to confirm.
Dow, Jones & Co. say ot Sugar:
"A large operator In Sugar saidlufltnight:
Compared with other stocks, Sugar acts
badly. That is, the price is always dropping
ot a point nnd it lookB as though it wanted
to go down. This action, In connection
with the recent advance, makes a bearish
feeling on Sugar and seems to support the
unfavorable rumors which como from "Wash
ington. Surface indications may be right,
bat they arc more apt to be wrong1. It
mart be remembered that the Sugar
schedule Us not a certainty, and the moro
confidence there may be that substantially
the caucus bill will prevail, the more deslro
there will be to have the stock look wealc
and to secure a .good short Interest agains
the final passage of the bill. Meantime,
conservative traders had rather buy Sugar?
two or three points higher when tho
result Is assured than take the risk ot
something going wrong; consequently, If.
looks to me as though Sugar would hang
around present prices, or perhaps dech'no
a little during the next few weeks.' I
Information Is or the best with regard,
to Rock IMand. It is certain that tho
winter wheat ciop in Rock Island's ter
rltory Is a very large one, and will toon
begin to move. It seems to me that there
ia a fine strong chance for this stock ta
advance, tmd rapidly, if any does. H.
should go on a 4 per cent basis as corns
pared with other railroad stocks doinjj
the same kind of business.
