"Hnrry, I can endure this no longer!"
Miss Hostcr Glendennlng's high-bred, intel

voice betrayed a most unusual notation.
Yon must get rid of this this Ishmael

Hockuday, whose acquaintance young Harry
Glcndennlng had formed while making a so

the old judge, Harry's grandfather, who In
his younger days had broken away from the

Numerous Chemical Amendments Dis

DUBOIS URGGS SPEEDY ACTION
The Idaho Sonator Causes a Sensation By
Urging Bis Colleagues to Vote for the
Bill at Once Galllnger's Speech Against
Time on the History of Tariff Legislation.
Tho tariff bill, was taken tip promptly at'
12 o'clock yesterday, and thirteen paragraphs
were disposed of during the day. The pend
ing amendment was linseed, flaxseed, and
poppy seed oil, on which the House amend
ment was 15 cents.
Mr. Jones moved to lncreaso the duty to 0
As soon as Mr. Jones had offered his amend
ment Mr. Gallinger (Itep., N. H.) aroso from
behind a huge pile of manuscript and an
nounced that ho proposed to glvo a history
of American legislation on the tariff sinco the
day tho pilgrim fathers first set foot on
At 1.30 Mr. Galirnger was still speaking,
with tho pile of printed manuscript before
him beamingly undiminished. Only one Ke
publican (Mr. Frye) was in the chamber, ne
was engaged in roading a newspaper. On
the other sido of the political aile nine Dem
ocrats lounged in their chairs .reading, chat
ting, or writing.
At 2 o'clock Mr. Gallinger announced that
he had brought tho history of the tariff down
to 184C, and would suspend for the present
aud resume his speech at soma convenient
Mr. Alilrich suggested as the pending par
agraph, flaxseed, linseed and poppy seed oil,
was of importance, a quorum should bo pres
ent. The ringing of the bells brought forth
forty-nine Senators, six more than a quorum.
As soon as the announcement of the presence
of a quorum was made Mr. Dubois (Hep.,
Idaho) took tho floor and began a carefully
Mr. Dubois announced that he had no great
desiro to make a speoch upon tho pending
bill, but if thero bad been an effort made by
the Democratic- party to carry out the pledges
of tho platform of lb'JJ thero might havo been
an opportunity for u fair and interesting dis
cussion of tho respective advantages of free
trade and protection as questions of econom
ics and principles.
As the" dominant carty has now for the last
time, I hope, arranged these schedules, and
as in this last compromiso they havo pro
tected tho industries in the states of tho dif
ferent Democratic Senators sufficiently to sat
isfy the demands of those Senators, I take it
the measure is now perfected, and will pass or
bo defeated as it stands."
Speaking of the bill as a whole, tho Idaho
Senator said that the Democratic party had
admitted, in fr.iciiug the bill, that labor could
not be fairly dealt wilh under a free trade or
tariff for revenuo policy. He declared him
self a linn believer in tho policy of protection,
and said that while tho greatest prosperity
hadcomoto us under tho protective system,
ho did not believe there could be permanent
prosperity until thore was a reforal in the
Unnncialsjstem, and it would !e equally
fruitless topass this bill or to defeat it. "Un
til tho mints are open," ho said, "to tho free
and unlimited coinage of silver as well as
gold tno falling prices and stagnation of
business will remain with us.
"E.'ther the passage or defeat of this measure
will bo quickly followed by a return of busi
ness ton greater or les3 extent. The settle
ment of this question now and tho adjourn
ment of Congress will bring .relief to tho
country and employment to thousands of hon
est men and women who are willing and anx
ious to work and who are in actual distress.
We are now at the lowest ebb. Action of any
kind, so that it is final, will be a welcome re
lief. The millions of invested capital will no
longer remain Idle. It will start thousands
of industries as soon as it knows what it can
depend upon. This returned prosperity, how
ever, will be short-lived. Within a short
period many enterprises will be abandoned,
while In others a reduction of wages and
force will bo inaugurated to become perma
nent and settled." He declared there could
bo no permanent tiroperity until there was a
return to bimetallism.
"I believe it is the duty of the Senate in
this great industrial crisis, when hundreds of
thousands are suffering for the necessaries of
life and asking for employment, to pass what
ever legislation wo intend to enact with
such promptness ns Is commensurate with a
fair discussion of the various schedules. The
quicker action is bad, the better for tbo coun
try, in my judgment. I do not mean by this
that I will favor unusual methods to limit de
bate. Discussion in this body should be free
and untrammeled. but we should bear in
mind at all times that any action, so that it is
final, will bring work and bread to numbers
oLdeserving people, who must remain idle
and hungry until our erdict is rendered.
"Speedy action now will sweep away the
clouds and mist which obscures the vision of
the people and enable them to perceive with
clearness and accuracy that it is our mone
tary and not our revenue laws which bring
distress aud want and falling prices. View
ing tho present situation from every stand
point, taking into consideration every cir
cumstance, it is obvious that both temporary
and permanent happiness and prosperity will
the sooner return to our land by a speedy ac
tion on the bill before us. I will close by
repeating that I am a Arm believer and ndvo
cate of a logical and consistont system of pro
tection. The highest and most stable pros
perity will come to ns, however, when wo
unito protection with bimetallism, and not
That portion of Mr. Dubois' speech demand
ing immediate action upon the pending bill,
either its passago or its defeat, as the quick
est means of restoring at least temporary
commercial prosperity, created something of
a sensation, as indicating the attitudo of the
far western Republicans. It did not precipi
tate a controversy, however.
Mr. Allison thought tho proposed reduction
contempt of the entire village. Ho has dis
tributed gratuitous insults everywhere. Ho
has outraged our hospitality and made us a
public laughing stock."
All of which wa? a trifle too strong an ar
raignment of Col. Bob, though partially mer
ited. I will confess.
"Ho has grossly, shamefully Insulted Mr.
Van Vlarcom, nnd"
"Well, ves, he did shake young Van Vlar
com up a bit, but what of it?"
The shaking up of tbo said Van Vlarcom
had occurred in this wiso: Upon that par
ticular afternoon CoL Bob was sitting at his
case on tho slndy piazza of the Glendenning
residence, with his feet cocked up on the
railing, drawing invidious comparisons be
tween life in tbnt staid and conservative
New England town and in the great and
glorious West all to tho disgust and an
noyance of MIS3 Hester and the secret enjoy
ment of yonng Harry, who slyly led tho guest
on when he showed signs of flagging.
Several times CoL Bob had appealed to the
lady for ratification of his remarks, with an
"Eh, Miss Glendennin'?" and a stabbing
motion toward her with his thumb, harmless
and innocent in its Intent, but almost mad
dening to her.
"The village Is all right enough," said the
Ishmaellto, oracularly, in reply to an artful
question from Harry. "Thar is something
kinder restful and good about them over
hanging elm trees. It is as pretty as a pic
ture, too, with tho roads winding around
among the trees, and up and down little hills
and slopes and past comfortablo houses, hnlf
hidden behind the elms and fir trees. It is a
nice place to die in, Harry."
"But, to live in"
"It Is a good place for old folks nnd poets,
perhaps, but it is no place for a live man. 1
feel like a torchlight parade in a graveyard.
"But the people?"
"It's the people that tire me most. A man
must live by rule and rote here. He must
walk the beaten paths that his grandfather
trod and worship the traditions llkoan In
dian." Even this traducing of the eminently re
spectable and wholly beloved place of her
birth .was enough to have condemned him
wholly In Miss Hester's eyes, but it was only
as the beginning of his offenses.
"Yes," he resumed, "I feel like"
Just then there came an Interruption. A
spirited horse, bearing a slender, girlish
figure on his back, came plunging around the
bend m tho elm-ehaded road, followed by a
correctly clad equestrian mounted on a hand-
of the duty on flaxseed oil from 32 to 20 cents,
taken in connection with the reduction on
flaxseed to 20 cents a bushel, would result in
very heavy importations from Canada.
Mr. Perkins (Kep.,Cal.) thanked Mr. Jones
for restoring tho duty on olivo oil.
"Don't thank him too profusely," inter
rupted Mr. Chandler, "or ho will withdraw
the amendment." (Laughter.)
Mr. Frye criticised the proposed rato on
seal, whale, and other fish oil, 25 percent,
which he thought unjust. Ho moved to sub
stitute 8 cents per gallon (tho McKinloy
dutv) for 25 per oent Eight cents was
equivalent to 33 per cent
Mr. Frye's amendment was lost 23 to 35.
ne then moved another amendment to make
the rate 7 cents, instead of 25 per cent., tho
two rates being equivalent. This amend
ment was also lost 21 to 32. In tho next
paragraph, opium extracts for medicinal
uses, the Houso rale was 25 per cent. The
Senate amendment made it 20 per cent.
Tho Senate reduction was agreed to.
The novt Jones amendment was to place
crupo opium not adulterated, containing 9
per cent, or over of morphia, dutiable at 51
per pound In tho House bill, on tho free list.
Mr, Sherman then moved to increase tho
duty on smoking opium from 8C to 510 per
Mr. Sherman's amendment was lost 20 to
31. Mr. Jones moved to restore S3 per ton
(tho Houso rato) on sulphato of baryta and
barytes, in place of 25 per cent., as first re
ported. Mr. Aldrieh moved to substitute the pro
vision in tho McKlnley law. making the rate
on manufactured barytes 6G.72 per ton and
on unmanufactured barytes 1 per ton. This
was defeated, whereupon 3Ir. Lodge moved
to make the duty on manufactured barytes $5
per ton. Mr. Lodge's motion was also lost.
After further discussion of tho paragraphs
tho Senate went into exocutive session.
NO RIGHT OF INTERFERENCE.
Defense Argues that Col. AInsworth Could
Not Hcgulntc Contract Work.
The consideration of the deinurror Mod by
CoL Tred C. AInsworth to the indictment re
cently returned against him In connection with
tho Ford's theater disaster of Juno 9 last was
taken up yesterday before Judge JfcComas in
criminal court No. .
The demurrer Is similar to tho one filed to the
Indictment recently returned against CoL AIns
worth, Dant. Covert, and basso. It will be re
xnemtered that as to tho latter the demurrer
was quashed by the court of appeals.
CoL AInsworth was yesterday represented by
Hon. Benjamin Bmtcrwotth and Jlr. J. W. -Morrison,
while District Attorney Birney and bis
assistant, Hugh T. Taggart, appeared for tho
Mr. 3Iorrl3on argued that in view of tho fact
that the contract lor the underground work bad
been given to a contractor. CoL AInsworth had
no right to dictate or to interfere In the prem
ises, and that the defendant could not beheld
liable for any negllgenco that developed in tho
prosocutlon of the vrorfc.
The present indictment, Mr. Morrison con
tended, was as defective as Its predecessors.

Increased Pay for Consul General.
Senator Morgan, from the Committee on
Toreign Relations, yesterday reported from
that commlttco an amendment to tho diplo
matic and consular appropriation bill increas
ing the salary of the consul general at Tnngier,
Morocco, from 52.003 to 53,030. Tho amend
ment is indorsed by the Secretary of State.
In making his report Senator Morgan illed a
letter from tho present consul general, show
ing him to be tho great grandson of the first
American consul to that city, nnd that the
present Sultan sustilns the same relation to
the sovereign of his great grandfather's time.

CoL Bob's boots came down from the
piazza railing with a thump. He charged
across the lawn, bounded over the low wall,
and seized the rebellious brute by the head.
There wns a savngo struggle for a moment or

The pressure to sell was most pronounced In

A dozen voices assailed him. Ills error was
clearly pointed out. He could not see It, and
reiterated his opinion, adding doggedly that
he was unable to comprehend how sugar-coating
an offense improved It.
One thing led to another till the zealous
workers were genuinely angry and regrettable
things were said. There is no knowing how
lar the matter might havo been carried had
not the Ishmaelite stalked out, leaving behind
htm the first scandal that had disgraced the
church since its foundation.

"He must go. nnd go quickly!" she said, de

But still the Ishmnolite lingered, n rankling
thorn in tho llesh of Mis3 Hester. She could
scarcely conceal her aversion not to say ab
horrence but he stayed on, apparently se

He promptly invited Col. Bob to accompany
him to the metropolis.

stay right hero till you come back. I'll get
along all right. I reckon."
Tbo last thing that Miss Hester said to

Bob and Miss Hester sitting in what be might
have considered suspicious proximity to each
other in a vine-screened nook.
And he would almost have taken oath that
ho saw the Ishmaelite's arm drop from about
Miss Hester's waist. And it seemed certain
that a warm blush was mantling the lady's
cheeks. Still, Harry might hays been mis
taken. As for CoL Bob, there was always snob, a
