Washington. Dec 20 The house
was in mi uglv frame of mind yoiter
day. Tho Republicans were In alight
ing temper over tho Hawaiian situa
tion when the house met and the row
opened immediately Mr. Cochran's
resolution of Monday was presented
and hurriedly referred to the com
mittee on rules.
Tnen came tho sharp skirmish oil
the lloutollo resolution Hy means of
this resolution Mr. H.mtelle succeeded
In getting an opportunity to ad
dress the houso, hut Ills philippic
against the administration was cut
short by the action of the speaker in
deciding the point of order to which
Mr. lloutelle was spciu'ing in his
fuvor, and referred the resolution to
tho committee under the rules.
The consideration of the urgency
deficiency bill was then rusti ncd and
some very exciting scenes wore thon
cnaeted boforo It was finally passed.
Tho item apprjpriatlng 20,OJ0 for
special examiners was amended so as
to prevent the suspension of any pen
sioners without giving tho pensioner
notice with opportunity to furnish
testimony In rebuttal.
Amendments wero also adopted ap
propriating 3180,03.) for extra mileage
for members and senators, SIG.0J0 for
stationary and ubjut jt.l.OO) to pay
cm doves of the house and senate an
exit a month's pay The most bitter
opposition existed to each of these
propositions, the first of which was de
nominated on the floor a proceeding
whose scandalous character had not
been approached since the days of the
famous salary grub Mr. llland and
Mr. Holinan led the light against
these propositions with a view to plac
ing the members on record with an

numerically strong cnoiigu, anu me
committee on rules ultimately brought
in a special order, by tit terms of
which the filibustering was stopped
without a record-making vote.
After n lively parliamentary sklr
ml.h Mr. lloutelle demanded recogni
tion for a privileged resolution and
the speaker was obliged to recognize
him When read it proved to be tho
resolution Mr. lloutelle sought to in
troduce Monday, declaring that tho
prerogatives of congress had been in
vaded by the policy of the administra
tion, and declaring that policy incon
sistent with the constitution uud tra
ditions of the country. The row was
now fully under way. Mr Mccreary,
chnli man of tho foreign affairs com-i
mitteo, mado the point that the reso
lution was not privileged, and after
some sharo words from each side, Mr.
lloutelle got the floor to discuss tho
question as to whether the resolution
was privileged. J
"''ho message of the orcsident in- I
dlcates this country ni'iy be involved
in war with a irlendly power, tor
all we know," said he, in a loud voice,
tho arms of thn I nited States may
be even now pinioning with their
bayonets a friendly nation with
who. u the mass of the people of this
country sympa hue."
He hold, he said, that it was the im
perative duty of congress, reluctantly
recognized by tho president, to dis
avow, discredit and reprobate a poiiey
designed to bring tho country Into
discredit in tho eves of tho civilized
world. Great applause on the Re
"I enro not whence this policy om
anates," continued Mr. lloutelle,
"whotlier from u Republican presi
dent or a Democratic usurper."
The confusion thut followed the
word "usurper" drowned tho rest of
the sentence. He continued t talk
amid loud cries for order and the
speaker at lust, with tho aid of his
gavel, brought tho house to a stand
still. Meforo the gentleman from
Maine had fairly launched his next
philippic Speaker Crisp suddenly
swept tho ground from under him by
deciding tho point of order in accord
ance with tho contention of Mr Mc
Creury and referred tho resolution to
the committee on foreign alTu rs.
Mr. Moutollo and Mr. Dingier then
attempted to arguo the queUion re
lating to the decision of the chair,
but the speaker was obdurate. Amid
great excitement lie ordered all
gentlemen to be seated, declaring he
would hear nogentieman until no nail
formally discharged Ills duty by u
decision upon tho point at Issue.
Tho speaker then delivered his de
cision in a calm, quiet tone, though ho
was evidently laboring under the gen
eral excitement prevalent in tho
house, and referred tho resolution to
the committee on foreign affairs Mr.
lloutelle immediately appealed from
the decision of the chair and Mr Mc
Creary moved to lay the appeal on tho
tab.e. This motion prevailed, ISO to 80.
During the call of committees for
reports which followed, the Nicaragua
canal bill was favorably reported
from tho committee on co umerce.
The house, at the conclusion of the
call, went into eommittco of tho whole
for the further consldera;lon of tho

Mr. Curtis of Kansas, then offered
an amendment to pay the employes of
the houso and senate, including the
capltol police, who were on the roll
November 3 whea the extra session
adjourned, an extra month's Day. Tho
amount involved was 845,000. Mr.
Rlchirdsou of Tennessee, offered an
amendment to this amendment widen
ing its scope. After some debate
among Mr Sayres in opposition, Mr
Curtis and Mr- Hooker in advocacy,
Mr. Richardson withdrew his amend
ment and the Curtis amendment car
ried. No further amendments were adopt-
cd nnd the committee reported tho
bill and ponding amendments to tho
house. A -eparate vote was demand
ed by Mr. llland on tho mllongo
amendment and Mr llrcekenridgn on
the amendment for an extra month's
pay for employes of tho house and
Mr Wells of Wisconsin, called for
tho yeas nnd navs on tho milp.ige
amendment, but the members w.-ri
not nnvious to go on reconl Mr.
llland of Missouri, immediately in
augurated a filibustering movement
Ho explained that all he wanted was
a record making vote
"That's just what you don't get,"
cr'.ed a iloren voices. Mr. Holinan and
Mr. llland Insisted that they were en
titled io an live and nay vote and Mr.
It illey of Texas, testified to the justice
of the demand, but tho house would
not agree to It, and Mr. llland went
on making filibustering motions to ad
joivn, to taKo a recess, adjourn to n
enrtaiii dav. ntc. Meantime tho speak
er had retired fnmi tho chair and tho
committee on rules had held n meet
ing. A special order wns prepared.
Tho gag wus invoked. General Catch
lugs, whoso appearance with the rule
In his hand, was greeted with loud
cheers. Successively the order was
adopted, the motion to adjourn was
defeated; the mileage amendment nnd
the amendment for a month's extra
jay to houso and senate employes
were agreed to Shortly thereafter
the house adjourned.

Washington, Dee. '.'(). The majority
report of the ways mid menus commit
tee on the recently j reparwl tnrlfl'
bill was made public yesterday. It was
prepared by Chairman Wilson nnd Is
In part as follows:
The American people after the full
est and most thorough debate ever
given by any people to their ilseiil pol
icy, have deliberately ii ml rightfully
decided that tho existing tarlll" .8
wrong in principle and grievously un
just In operation.
Tho bill on which the committee
has expended much patience and anx
ious labor is notoll'ered as neomp'ete
response to the mandate of the Amer
ican -iconic. It no more t-rof esses to
be purged of all protection than to be
free of nil error lu its complex nnd
manifold details. However we limy
deny tho existence of any legisla
tive pledge or other right of any
congress tj muko such p'tdgc, for the
continuance of duties that carry with
them more or less acknowledged pro
tection wo must' recognize that great
inteiests do exist whose existence and
prosperity it Is no part of our reform
either to imperil or to curtail. We be
lieve and we luive the warrant of our
own past experience for believing,
that l eduction of duties will not in
jure, but givo inoro abundant life to
all our irrent manufacturing indus
tries, however much they may dread
the change. In dealing with the
tarllT question as with every other
long standing abuse that has inter
woven itself with our social or indus
trial system, the legislator must ul
ways remember that. In the beginning,
temperate reform is safest, having in
itself the principle of growth.
Wo have believed that the llrst step
towards the reform of the tariff
should be a release of taxes on the
materials of industry. There can bo
no substantial and beneficial reduc
tion upon the necessary clothing and
other comforts of tho American peo
ple, nor any substantial and benelicl.il
enlargement of the field oLAincricun
labor, so long as wo tax materials
and processes of production. Kvery
tnx upon tho producer falls with In
creased force on the consumer. Kvery
tnx on the producer in this country
Is a protection to his competitors in
I all other countries, and
so narrow is
his market ns to limit Him number
nnd lessen tho wages of those to whom
ho can glvo employment Kvery
cheapening in the cost or enlarge
ment of the supply of his raw
materials, while primarily insuring to
the bencllt of the manufacturer him
self, passes under free competition
To the farmer of the country wo
have given untaxed agricultural im
plements and binding twine and un
taxed cotton ties for the additional
reason In tho hitter case thut cotton
is the largest export crop of tho coun
try sold abroad in competition with
the cheap labor of India and Kgypt,
believing It wns sufficient for the
private tax gatherer to follow the
farmer In the markets of his own
country and not to puVsue him to all
tho markets of the world. As cotton
bagging can be used but once, we
thought it best to extend the draw
back system to such bagging made up
of jute butts when used upon our ex
ported cotton, a privilege which the
exporter of wheat can already now
enjoy, coupled with tho further ad
vantage that the same bags may bo
used for successive exporlatious of
A most important change lu tho bill
proposed from the present law will be
found in tho general substitution of
ad valorem for specific duties This
must always bo the characteristic of
the rcvenuo tariff levied upon n large
range of articles, especially when they
include the plain necessaries of life.
It Is the purpose of the present bill
to repeal in toto section 3 of the tariff
act of October 1, 1S;ij, commonly but
most erroneously culled its reciprocity
provision. That act placed sugar,
molasses, coffee, tea mid hides on
the free list, but authorized
tho piesident, should ho bo satisfied
that the government of any other
country producing such .articles Im
posed duties upon the agricultural or
other products of the United States
which he might deem rcclnrocnlly
unequal nnd unreasonable, to sus
pend the provision under which these
articles wo-o admitted Into tl.is
country free. This section has brought
no appreciable advantage to Amen
can exporters, and it is not the intcn
lion to elfect a provls.on for re
ciprocity but for retaliation.
It may bo said that we aro not jus
tified in making so large n reduction
in revonuo at a time when govern
ment receipts nnd expenditures can
no longer be balanced and when some
now sources of temporary rcvenu
must be sought for. We have been
compelled to retain some articles upon
tho dutiable list and to leave some
duties higher than we desired because
of tho present necessity of the treas
ury, but we have not felt that any
temporary shrinkage of revenue
should deter us from carrying nut ns
effectually as we could the liistrue
tions given by tho American people
when congress wns put into power.

the Democratic members of thu com
mittee. The Republican members will here
