five tramps were taken to Omaha and
This morning 100 tramps gathered here
and announced that they would permit no
trains to pass through on the Omaha lino
unless the company agreed to transport
them to Sioux City free. They prepared to
pile rails on the track to force trains to stop.
The first freight that approached from the
South slowed up for fear of being wrecked.
In a minute the tramps swarmed over the
cars and at once put a guard or six men
over the engineer and settled down as the
train moved off. In three hours another
train came in from the South and another
hobo band captured it. This train carried a
mall car, and the United Slates autlionUes
at Omaha werenotified.
A t 4 o'clock a special train with thirty
deputies arrived from Omaha. The tramps
prepared to capture the train and sur
rounded the cars. The deputies poured out
with drawn levolvers. The tramps scat
tered everywhere and showed no fight.
Each deputy captured a man. Bix resisted
and several drew knives, but tue guns of
deputies intimidated them, and the
prisoners were taken off,
B. W. Gilles, a local attorney, was ar
reted for aiding the men in obstructing
mail trains and United States officers.
It is said that he has been retained by
thc tramps, and was advising them as to
what course to pursue. The tramps were
taken on a special train to Omaha and

TIE FIXEO FOR II VOTE
End of the Tariff Debate Will
Be Reached This Afternoon.
AN INTERESTING DAY'S WORK
Mr. Tillman's Final Effort to Venti
late the Sugar Trust Scandals
Mr. Teller Meters to the Dismissal
ol President Andrews for During
to Express an Honest Opinion.
The Senate agreed yesterday afternoon
unanimously (the Vice President, at least,
said it agreed) to meet this morning at 10
o'clock and take a vote on the coufeicnce
reirtirt at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
This agreement was reached after a
singular scene on the Hcor of the Senate,
which reminded one of the hurly-buily
at a convention when there is a brisk busi
ness going on iii the tinding of delegations)
or delegates. Mr. Allen of Nebiaska had
the floor and was making an unlimited
speech While this was going on the Sen
ate divided into gioups discussing, prob
ably, the best means or pre venting Mr. Mor
gan from going on with his speech, which
was due at 6 p. m.
Mr. Morgan himself made the motion
after all this rmes'-e and diplomacy for the
taking or a letrss until today at 10 o'clock
and for the vote at 3 p. m.
Mr. Butler taunted Mr. Morgan with
surrendering in this way the condition
which might have forced a vote on the
Pacific Railrpad resolution, but Mr. Mor
gan insisted to the end that, after the
tarirt vote was taken, there would be a
quorum present, and then, ir the majority
chose to run over the resolution, the re
spousibllity would rest with tiic Senate.
Mr Morgan left the impression that he
would try and force the Pacific Railroad
resolution after 3 o'clock this afternoon.
Mr. Tillman was defeated again yester
day in his desire to have a debate on the
resolution seeking a new investigation of
the Sugar Trust and sugar Senators.
Mr. Allen and Mr Foraker had a lively
tilt which raked up the ashes of tho
Ohio campaign of 1S0G and which In
tensely amused and "dified the Senate
and galleries. This debate related to the
marvelous multiplication of Republican
voters in the State or Ohio last year when
tliey were so badly wanted.
Another feature or the day's proceed
ings was the speech of Mr. Teller In
which he denounced goldbuggidm as
manifested in the dismissal of President
Andrews Mr. Teller also reviewed the
1806 campaign briefly and declared
that he would never rejoin the Repub
lican partv until it became honest, a
remark which set the galleries to ap
plauding so enthusiastically that the Vice
President repeated the supprcsive for
mula. The vote on Mr. Tillman's motion,
to take up the resolution Investigating
the Sugar Trust scandals was yeas,
15; nays, 35; so the resolution was
not taken up.

Mr Turley's first vote as Senator on a
roll call was for the Tillman resolution.
Mr. Teller was iecognied for a set speech
on the report. He said that he had felt no
disposition to retard the speedy passage
of the bill. It was, however, not such a
bill as he ought to vote for It was built
on the line2 demanded by the Republican
platform. Mr. Teller assailed the omission
of the tax on stocks and bonds.
He said that when the committee came
hack with that provision, passed in the
Senate without a dissenting voice, omitted
from it and w ere asked what had become
or it they said there was a great constitu
tional objection In the way, in that some
certain transrers which they had wished
to except could not be excepted with
out violating the constitution. This was
their explanation, this is the puerile reason
they had to give Tor eliminating from the
bill a tax which would raise some millions
of revenue from a class or people who
could well afford to bear it, upon whom
it would hardly be a burden.
Mr. Teller then asserted that the pro
vision could have been made constitu
tional .with hardly the change or a word.
Mr. Allison made an explanation as to
the question or constitutionality.
Mr. White Does the Senator from Iowa
real! v sake any stock in that constitutional
Sir. Allifon, after a menient's hesita
tion, said that he did.
Mr. Teller said that it was not until
after the conferees returned to the Senate
with the emasculated bill that he kuew, or
that he thought that any other Senator
kuew there was a great constitutional
objection to the provision
'-.The trouble is," continued Mr. Teller,
"that the bill Is peculiarly the child of a
few men, accepted whether they like it
or not by the dominant power.
"As a revenue bill it is a failure, as a
protective bill, except in the protection it
affords to trusts and combines, to the
monopolies that are oppressing the people,
It Is a Failure "
He challenged the committee to show how
tho bill would provide sufUcient revenue
to defray the expenses or the Government.
Returning to the question or its revenue
producing Teatures, he showed that even
taking the outside estimates or the chair
man or the Committee on Ways and Means
the bill would not yield enough revenue.
Mr. Teller concluded by saying that the
Republicans' mistake was not In recog
nizing that the real difriculty was a
monetary one and not one of protection.
"This tarirt will not bring prosperity, and
next year they will probably say we did
not make it high enough we will put it up
higher. But, Mr. President, they will not
then fool the people. They can no longer
deceive them. The people are beginning
to know that it Is not taxes, but money
they need to make them prosperous." Ho
also argued against the settlement or the
money question by a commission and made
fun of the Democratic and Indianapoliscon
vention alliance on the settlement or the
question. It was a strange combination,

A Lively Incident After Adjourn
ment, in Which Members
Take a Hand.
There was an exciting sceneenithc floor
of the House aLout 8 o'clock -last night,
shortly after adjournment was taken, in
which Thomas N. Conrad, secretary to Con
gressman Sidney Eres of Virginia, and
George II. Davis, one of the page, were
the ivntral figures, and a number of repre
sen'ntives interested spectators and peace
makers. I'lrec tly after the presiding officer had
declared the House adjourned there re
mained in 1 he hall twenty or thirty mem
bers, some of whom were engaged in
conversation and others attempting to
finish their day's work. Mr. Conrad was
on the floor assisting .Mr. Epes, when the
Congressi. an askedhimtogotohisconuiiit

had left on the desk. Instead of complying
with the request himself. Mr-Cunmdiunu'd

ocratic !dc. and ordered him to go and pro
cure thq paper wanted.
Mr. Pavis, who Is abool eighteen years
old, insisted that he could not leare hi.
post and refused to comply. Mr. Conrad is
alleged to have replied with an oath to
the effect that the kids about the House
were not worth anything' to which re
mark the page took offense and retorted
in Hnguage which in no uncertain terms
sought o convey the impression that the
private secretary was no gentleman. Mr
Conrad'" blood was at fever heat by tlu-j
time, and, clinching his fist, he struck the
page a stunning blow on one of his eyes.
The attack was so unexpected that be
fore Mr Davis had time to recover, Mr
Conrad had gotten in severa equally ef
fective hits, which considerably disfig
ured the countenance of the young roan.
By this time the combatants were sur
rounded by a score or Congressmen, and
attaches, some or them athletes, wh j
finally succeeded by force in compelling
the private secretary to desist
Capitol Detective Slnnott was also on
the floor at the time and took a hand in
the proceedings, and placing Mr. Conrad
under arrest marched him to the chaplain's
office, followed by a delegation of colons
who sought to compromise the matter. Mr.
Conrad was turned over to Lieut. Burrows,
who refused to release him, and a patrol
wncon wocall'd from No. G precinct and
the prisoner taken to the station, where a
charge of assault was entered against him
