BUNCOED THE PRESIDENT
Administration Version of the Quar
rel with the Senate.
GORMAN'S ALLEGED TREACHERY
Ea and Other "Conservativei'' TTndentood
That Mr. Cleveland Was for Free Coal
and Iron and Opposed to Trntt Legisla
tion Hovr the Tables May Be Turned.
Aggressive members of tho United States
Lnato had tholr say yesterday, and they said
k without mincing their words, bnt. while
. Cleveland nnd the members ol his admin-
kration may not trlk back In public, it is
Limed by those in authority that there is a
: different version of the situation which
bt be told, and which would show that ccr-
I Senators, instead of beine deceived by the
Kdent, have in fact tried their best to
to tho l'resldent, Secretary Carlisle, and
It Is explained by friend of the adminis-
fratlon that the Carlisle interview was given
out with the well-defined understanding be
tween tho President and Cabinet and leading
Senators that something must be done to
save the bill about to bo passed by the Senate
from being so obnoxious to tho public that it
would not be tolerated, even when amended
in conference along the lines laid down by the
l'resldent and subsequently made puDiic in
big letter to Chairman Wilson. The
interview will make It appear to the
people that the administration was ready
and anxious til at the bill should pass tho
Senate, and it was expected that the public
would tbus be brought to loot; at the Sennto
bill with something like toleration. Later,
When amended in conference so as to leave
out the one-eighth differential on refined
sugar and materially reduce the Senate rate
on coal and iron. It not actually to put coal
and iron on the free list, it was thought the
people, after being schooled by the Carlisle
interview, would accept the conference bill
PRESIDENT'S ATTITUDE rNDEOSTOOD.
It is staled by friends of the administration
that these facts were well understood by Sen
ators. Gorman understood the President's
attitude thoroughly and so did members of
the Finance Committee. Many of these, it is
stated, had promised to let some of the
amendments De dropped in conference.
No one. say tho President's friend, ever
talked with the Presidenton the tariff without
understanding thoroughly tbat he was for
free coal and iron, and tbat ho was against
trusts, differentials and discriminations. All
the consent tbat ho ever gave to the Senate
bill was intended nnd well understood as in
tended, to hasten the bill through the Senato
stages mid get It into inference when he was
assured proper amendments would bo made.
This would have gone along smoothly
enough, but after getting tho President's ap
parent consent to the Senate amendments
certain lending Senatqrs announced that they
would not allow any amendment In confer
ence, but stated that it was the Senate bill or
no bill at all. no bill at all meaning the con
tinuance of tho McKinley law. Till' is where
the attempt was made to bunco tho President
and his followers, nnd the attempt was suc
cessful until the facts began to leak out.
Senator Gorman Is severely criticised by
friends of the administration forthe course he
has taken, and there are few charges of the
nature of duplicity and treachery tbat they
are not willing to apply to him. lho fact that
be called at the White House yesterday
morning and then went to the Senate and
delivered his fearful attack on the President,
is pointed at as proving that his attitude has
not been straightforward and honest as it
HOW THE SCREWS CAN BE TUT OX.
But while the indignation at Senators who
have been engaged in this bunco game is
deep and vehement the administration is not,
it is claimed, particularly disturbed or
fearful for the ultimate result. It is
said tbat should tho situation continue a lit
tlo longer as it is at the present moment, vig
orous means will lie used to And out who It is
that is blocking the war of tariff reform and
let the responsibility rost then where it be
longs. Tho method of finding out will
be through tho medium of pop gun
bills. The House will pass a freo sugar
bill, no duty on raw or refined sugars,
nnd as soon as passed and that will not be
long It will be s-nt to the Senate, which will
lay aside the tariff bill proper and con-Ider
the new, restmted one. Senator Harris has
told tho administration that be can pas9 a
free tugar bill, framed with this provision
nlone.through tho Senate In forty-eight hours.
Other bills, for free coal and freo iron, would
follow.md pa and become law.
Then, it is stated, tho-o who have been
holding out for higher duties will bo glad to
get any duties at all. Senators who have de
manded the retention of the one-eighth dif
ferential on refined sugar will be glad to get
the 40 per cent, duty on raw sugar, which
they could have won with the present bill,
and sy nothing about the differential.
Tho next move would be the passage of a
complete tariff bill, tho path having been
made easy by the subjugation of those who
now stand in the way.
CHURCH BUILDING POSTPONED.
Crcction of Trinity .Methodist Episcopal
Deferred Until :ext Spring.
Tho erection of Trinity Methodist Episco
pal Church, nt Tilth and C streets southeast,
lias been postponed until next spring, r.ev.
M. T. B. Itice, pastor of the church, said last
night that it was tbo intention of tho building
committee to begin work this summer.
The undertaking, however, had received an
unexpected setback from the fact that the
present cnurrn property on jt ourtn, near G
streets southeast, had in somo way become
involved. The cloud that rested on it had
to be cleared away, and this has been accom
plished by obtaining the necessary signatures
of heirs to the property who are scattered all
over the country. The last two to sign livo In
Alabama, and the papers sent them for their
names are daily expected by the building
committee. The titlo Doing perfected it will
permit of the sale of the church property on

of those intrusted in the proposed structure
was to have o ne that would be striking in

Upon being questioned by a Times man at
the station house, one of them said:
"I applied ut tho statlan to-night for shel
ter but will return to camp to-morrow. I had
no sleep last night, indeed, none of us had.
As soon is I get a remittance from my for
mer emplojer in California I shall go back.
I work there on a farm, and when
I left my employer owed me $240, and I hnvo
written to him for money to pay my way
back. I am certain of getting the money.
If I had kown how things wouid turn out
you bet I should have remained in Califor
nia." There were no general officers in camp last
night. They had sought more comfortable
"quarters. The men -were -"grouped" about
tno diminutive camp tires, trying to keep
warm; to keep dry was out of the question.
Many sought repose with only a blanket to pro
tect them from tho mud and rain.
About a dozen of the faithful are suffering
from chills and fever. Citizens of George
town say that there is illness in camp. One
of tho men at tho Georgetown station-house
confessed to a severo nttack of rheumatism.

tary of the United States. I maintain that
this is a clear usurpation of power."

the Constitution in support of bis position.

He Tells Secrets and Exposes Some
Tarty Skeletons. ,
IN DEFENSE OF THE TARIFF BILL

which occurred there 'yesterday daring Sena
tor Gorman's two-and-a-half-hour speech,
consisting of what was intended to be an ex
posure of the President and a defense of, ths
Mr. Gorman's frankness was simply amaz
ing to any one who knows his political fibre.
Ho is eventually a man who discreetly holds
his own counsel. Yesterday ho told party
secrets, revealed tbe doings of party caucuses,
and told the Inner history of the party since
1831 without reservation.
The President was attacked with keenness
and vigor, yet with calmness and composure,
Mr. Gorman's statement of how he had
"walked through the filth and slime of the
campaign of 1884," with Cleveland when
other men faltered, was listened to with the
deepest interest, as were the accounts of his
nttitude at tbo nominating conventions of
188.? and 1892.
Mr. Gorman becan his remarkable sneech
by stating tbat he hoped bo appreciated tbe
gravity oi me situation; that ordinarily it
would be easy enough to settle debated points
in a tariff bill In conference. But tbe situa
tion was that n bill must be framed to get
forty-three Democratic votes every one in the
chamber now that Senator Hill bad declared
against tbe measure with the income tax in
it. Tbe representatives of the great States of
Now York, Now Jersey, Ohio, West Yirginla,
ana Maryland announced at tbe outset that
no radical bill could be passed; that they
could not support it. Then after compli
menting Senators Jones, Voorhees, Yest, and
Harris for their untiring labors in behalf of
the bill be said that tbe infamous calumnies
heaped on the Democrats of tbe Senato de
manded a plain statement of facts. It would
bo made without malice, but the whole truth
would bo told.
rnESIDEST'S LETTE2 CRITICISED.
"The Democrats of the Senate had gone
patriotically to work to secure prosperity to
tbeir country nnd their party in power. In the
midst of tho struggle came the President's let
ler the most uucnlled for, the most extraor
dinary, the most unwlso communication," he
added with measured and bitter tones, "tbnt
ever came from a President of the United
States to either body of Congress. It placed
tho Senato In a position where the dignity and
honor otthe chamber mu.it be maintained.
"I am placed In a condition where I must
tell tho story as it occurred," continued Sena
tor Gorman. "Tho limit of endurance has
been reached." He then relnted how tho bill
had been framed and how the Jones amend
ments bad all been parsed upon nnd approved
by Secretary Carlisle nnd the President. "I
declared on a previous ocasiua that I believed
tho bill as framM would meet tho support of
a Democratic Senate, a Democratic House
nnd a Democratic President, l believed then
as I believe nowthat I had authority to make
Then the Maryland Senator drew from his
desk a letter from Secretary Carlisle, dated
April w. wnicu ne asicea tjenntor cocKreu to
read for film. Thit the Missouri Senator did
with much gusto nnd a deep emphasis and
intonation on the important parts that amused
tho galleries considerably. The letter em
phatically indorsed the Senate bill.
"Such." continued Senator Gorman, "was
the declaration of tho Secretary of the Treas
ury. That statement from him had n wonder
ful effect. But for It I do not believe we ever
should have succeeded In getting together.
Tho President was not ignorant of what wo
proposed to do. The papers announced on
tho day following the interview with Mr. Car
lisle that the President himself concurred
with his great Secretary."
MOST SENSATIONAL SCENE.
Then came the most sensational scene that
has occurred in tho Senate for many years,
the placing of Democratic Senators on the
witness stand, one after another, to impeach
tho honor of n Democratic President, nnd to
expose his alleged douMi dealing with the
leaders oi ms own part. continuing nis re
marks Mr. Gorman said:
"Now, Mr. President, this is a very broad
statement. I call upon the two gentlemen who
bad the Immediate control of the bill, the
Senator from Missouri (Mr.. Vest), and the
benator from Arkansas (Mr. Jones), and I
ask them it I have made a statement which
varies a hair's breadth from tbo truth, and it
is due to the Senate, it is due to themselves,
it is due to mo, it is due to tha country that
the truth shall be known.' Let the people
have the truth. I pause for a reply from my
friend from Missouri."
Senntor Yest arcse:
"When I addressed tho Senate on Friday
Inst." he began. "I studiously avoided going
into details. Iwlsh to say, as the Senator
from Maryland ha3 addressed himself to me,
that I have never spoken to the President on
this subject, nor hav o I seen him since ho did
me the honor to send for mo during tho
pendency of the bill for the repeal of the
Sherman law. Tho Secretary of tne Treasury
was repeatedly in our committee room, and
gave us to understand that tho greatest
calamity which could come to the country
would be tho failure to pass a bill to take the
McKinley act from the statute books. Ho dis
tinctly impressed on me and on other mem
bers that no difference of opinion as to rates
of duties should prevent tne great consumma
tion of the passage of a tariff bill in this Con
gress." SENATOR VEST OBJECTED.
Senator Yest, after explaining that he had
known nothing about, the Jones amendments
when asked about them by Senator Aldrich,
"I objected to them and Senator Jones ap
pealed to mo to wlthdrnw my objections; and
in his argument stated that the Secretary of
tbo Treasury had passed on every one of the
amendments and agreed to them. He had
also seen the President and tbe President bad
said to him: 'I am willing to do or say any
thing which will pass this bill through Con
gress.' Then I said: 'This is to receive the
support of the administration?' It we go into
this fight wo must have tho President behind
us. Senator Jones assured me that that
would be the case, nnd I gave up my own
opinion and agreed to the amendments."
Senator Gorman then called on Senator
Jones for his version and his interview with
Senator Jones said: "It is proper that I
should make some statement to the Senato as
to tbe amendments of this bill. It is well
known that the Finance Committee had re
ported a bill which it was impossible to pass
through the Senate. Wo knew that to pass
tho bill in its form nt that time was impos
sible. With that fact staring us in tho face,
knowing tho necessity of passing some sort of
tariff bill while we had the power to do so,
the Senator from Missouri and I discussed
the bill repeatedly, and I said to him tbat
there was but one way of passing a bill, and
that I would ascertain the viows oMhose who
wero opposing it.
"Without telling the Senator from Missouri
anything. I began these conversations with
individual Senators and before doing so I
prepared a bill with these proposed amend-1
-" fef'- -
ments, and I went through this bill with man
after man, and rarely saw my colleague on
the committee. I did not tell him anything
about my progress. Tbo first step, after
ascertaining tbe point of safety for the bill,
was to go to the Secretary of the Treasury. I
bad previously talked with him and the Presi
dent of the possibility of some sort of a bill
being accomplished and both theught it
would be wise to undertake just the course I
did pursue. Afterward I went to the Sec
retary andsbowed him every proposed amend
ment, and together wo examined the condi
tion of the Treasury and the effect which the
amendments would have onthe revenue and
the changes made from the McKinley act. I
asked him tho question whether if we conld
bring forty-tbreo Senators to the support of
the bill, we should make concessions to secure
them, and he said there was no sort of doubt
in his mind about it.
LET THE rBESIDENT EtOW.
"I asked him to speak to the President, for
the President could not look into all the pro
posed amendments, and as he knew the
effect of them that he should let tha Presi
dent know just what they meant, telling him
at the same time tbat I would not propose
them to the Finance Committee unless he ap
proved of them; that nobody knew of their
existence; tbat I alone had all of the
facts and all of the information as to the
position of theso different men.
"A dny or two afterward I called on the
President and said to him: 'Mr. President, I
will not take another step unless it meets
with tbe approval of tbe administration,' and
he replied substantially as stated by the
Senator from Missouri, tbat he would and do
say anything to effect a compromise; that it
was a wise thing and a good thing.
"There was a proposition for a tax on coal
and iron ore in the bill when these amend
ments were prepared. It was in tbe bill,
and it was a modification of this bill which
I presented to the Secretary of the Treasury
and to the President, and I supposed, until I
read his letter presented in tbe House of
Representatives the other day, that it met his
approval. The question was whether we had
better pass a modified bill or pass no bill at
all, and I understood the President to say
tbat he was in favor of such action."
Mr. Vilas inquired whether anything in tbe
amendments which be had prepared and
which were the snbject of the conversation
with the Secretary of the Treasury or any
thing which tho Prestcent said, related to the
suDject of duty on coal and iron ore.
Mr. Jones very earnestly replied: "At every
conference with tbe President, coal and iron
ore were mentioned every one. Laughter.
He (the President) nowhere ever uttered a
single word against going forward wita the
amendments with a duty on coal and iron ore
in the bill."
WHAT THE PEESIDENT SAI1.
"Was there a single conference which the
Senator from Arkansas had with the Presi
dent in which the President did not express
the hope that the outcome would be free cool
and free iron ore?" again asked Mr. Vilas.
"He said on every occasion." replied 3Ir.
Jones slowly, as though weighing every word,
'that he hoped such would be the result
free coal and free Iron ore, but It was the ex
pressing of a hope, and circumstances would
not permit Its realization."
Senator Gorman then called on Senator
Hard?, who had come down from the chair
where he bad been kept all day to rule Sena
tor Vilas' motion out of order if it came np,
for bis statement. He bad seen the President
twice, understood the bill was satisfactory
and had never heard a word of tree coal and
iron being tho embodiment of Democratic
principles from the President or any one else.
Senator Gorman then alluded to Senator
Hill's speech of Friday, nnd said the Presi
dents letter must be regarded as a perfect
godsend by tho New York Senator the only
comfort he bad gotten out of the administra
tion. Senator Hill tried to show his consist
ency in demanding free coal and free iron.
"Yes, tbe Senator from New York has been
perfectly ccnistent." he said, turning sav
agely on Senator Hill, "ne is trying to kill
the bill and throw his party." Senator Hill
The necessity of preventing any concentra
tion of power in the hands of tbo President,
as stated in Washington's farewell address,
and shadowed by tbe Hayes-Tilden contro
versy, then occupied Mr. Gorman until he
took up tbo argument that free coal and iron
was not a Democratic doctrine and had not
been one. He cited Mr. Cleveland's letter
and tho platform on which he bad been
elected in support of his statement, and
finally gave a list of the duties on coal since
the first tariff bill. Then ho showed that the
Nova Scotia coal syndicate, which paid a roy
alty to the Canadian government, was the
only concern that wanted freo coaL
SCaiR AS A BEVENCE ARTICLE.
Taking up the sugar question. Senator Gor
man declared that he and Senators Brico and
Smith had made declarations at tbe conven
tion of 1892 to tho Louisiana Democrats that
sugar would be regarded as a revenue article
and so taxed. "We shall keep that promise
if we can," he ndded.
Mr. Gorman then closed by suggesting that
in the case of a differonco between two houses
it was the rule that the more conservative
measure should obtain and the mors radical
yield. In closing he said:
"What is our duty? What did we agree to
do? We placed in your hands, Mr. Chairman,
and you Democrats the power to say what
wa ought to do after careful and unfettered
conference. No such confidence on the part
of our party has ever been given to men as
wo gave it to you. Let this degree of con
fidence continue. Let this bill go back to
conference on the part of the two houses.
These thunder clouds will roll by, these
flash's of lightning, these exhibitions of
temper, all must clear the atmosphere and
enable those eonferees to give new hope and
new life to the American people."
Senator White, who followed Senator Gor
man, in a ;-hort but vigorous speech depre
cated personalties and favored simply accept
ing tha motion of Senator Gray to instruct
the conferees to insist on ths Senato amend
ments. He thought too much attention ought
not to be paid to tbe castu exhibited by the
President's nction in sending the letter and
too little to tho real merits of tho situation.
He opposed the Vilas resolution and thought
no action oucht to be taken toward instruct
ing the conferees spcciflnlly.
When Senator White closed, it was an
nounced by tbe Chair that the resolution of
Senntor Hill would come np for n vote, but
Senator Cockrell cut short any attempt to
vote by n motion to go into executive session,
tho passage of which closed the most dramatic
day in the tariff discussion and gave tho anx
ious party leaders an opportunity to rest theif
nerves in preparation for tho sharp debeje
which Is expected to be resumed to-day.
Furnaces Will Close Down.
Rieoelsville, Pa., July 23. It is feared
that tbe famous Durham furnaces of Cooper
& Hewitt will soon shut down. These iron
works bavo been in existence nearly 00
years, and for ov er thirty years have been In
almost constant operation. It is stated that
the ore mines owned by the firm in the vicin
ity of the furnnces will be closed August 1
and all miners discharged. The furnaces
hnvo not been paying for months.
Confidence In tho Government.
Paris, July 23. Premlor Dupny to-day
asked the chamber of deputies, as a mark of
confidence in the government, to reject all
amendments to the government's press bill
aimed at tho suppression of anarchy. Tho
chamber granted tno premier's request, and
all the amendments were rejected .with in
creased majorities. Tho chamber then ud
journed. Old Enough to Know Better.
Allestown, Pa., July 23. Mrs. Lavinia
Flickenstein, of Schocksville, this county,

She was TO years old and had been married
three times. Several months ago she separ

BITTER TOWARD CLEVELAND
Senators' Feeling Disclosed by Gor
UNCERTAINTY AS TO THE TARIFF
Democratic Leiden Art Still Anxious to Haw
the BUI Paiied Views of Brice, smith,
and Hill on tha Situation Xtpsblicanf
Are P leased A Conference.
While the sensational and unparalleled pro
ceedings in the Senate yesterday la whlca
the remarkable spectacle was presented of a
Democratic! party leader arraigning a Demo
cratic President for double dealing and then
so'emnly calling np one of the other leading
Democratic Senators to testify to the truth of

As matters stand intense bitterness toward
the President, an unwillingness to be placed
by him in a false light and a sense of outraged
dignity are playing much more of a part than
any unwillingness to make concessions in
order to pass some sort of a tariff bill. When
this latter question arises the publis will be
in a position to know what are the chance
At present everything is uncertainty. But
beneath all the bitterness displayed yesterday
one fact was evident: the Democratic leader
in the Senate are still anxious to have a tariff
bill passed. With this fact potent and tha
knowledge that the President and the Honse
both desire a bill, It is almost inconcelvak'e
that a compromise should not ultimately bo
At the close of yesterday's debate several
Senators were approached by The Tnm'
representative for their views on tbe situation.
Senator Brice admitted that the bill was in a
rather more precarious situation than it was
on Friday last, bnt intimated that the general
situation had not materially changed.
WHAT BEICE rEAKS.
"What I fear now," he added,"Is that thero
may be a general loosening of the hands
which held forty-three Senators together dur
ing the fight, in accordance with an under
standing which Senators Gorman and Cock
rell. ot the steering committee, and myself
had arranged. If one or two men try to step
in now and dictate on special changes, there
is no hope of holding forty-three Democratio
Senators for the bill. If a vote had been,
taken this afternoon to indefinitely postpone
the bill I think It would probably have car
ried. I think if on agreement is to be reached,
it must be reached soon or not at all."
Senator Smith said: "I am completely in tho
dark. I cannot see how the situation has
changed since Friday. I believe that it any
bill is to pass tho question will be settled this
week. Delay is not likely to help matters."
Senator Smith, who has twice given np his
engaged stateroom, intends to sail for Europe
on theMajestic August 8. "I hops matters
will be all settled by that time, anyway," ha
Senator Hill was serene but larcastis at ths
end of tbe day. He expressed the belief that
some sort of compromise would bo patched
up in a week or so.
The Republicans were pleased at the day's
exniuiiion. due nan ntue xo say as to tne pro
gramme. Senator Aldrich waU approached
just as he was arranging with Senators Man
derson and Allison for a meeting ot the steer
ing committee to take place to-day: "The
proceedings must have been most humiliating
to the Democrats," be said; "but I do not
think it would have been wise to have inter
fered. It was better to let them have the say.
We have no programme, but will discuss an
plans to-morrow." Senator Allison appeared
skeptical whether a motion to indefinitely
postpone the bill, especially if it had come
from the Republican side, would have carried.
BETCBLICAN3 WON'T ISTEHTEEE.
Senator Quay was smiling to himself all
through the debate. After adjournment he
said that he did not think it would be policy
for the Republicans to interfere at this
juncture. It would be tbe old story of inter
fering in a dispute between a quarrelsome
husband nnd wife. They would both unite
and turn on any one who attempted to
separate them. It would be wiser to wait for
the breach to widen. Interference now
might unite them.
Immediately after the adjournment of tbe
Senate there was a conference of the Demo
cratic leaders in the room of the Committee
on Appropriations. Among thoso present
were Senators Gorman, Brice, Cockrell, Har
ris, Ransom, Faulkner, and Blackburn, com
prising most of the Democratic steering com
mittee. These Senators had a long talk, and when
they departed no conclusion had been reached
as to the best way out of the present delicate
position in which the majority find them
selves. The proposition for a caucus was
discussed, and some of tbe Senators thought
it would be wise to have a general conference
of Democratic Senators before any step was
taken or a vote had on any of the pending
propositions. The matter of calling a caucus)
was left for further consideration.
It is understood that a number of the Sen
ators desire to say something on the subject
of the tariff report, and wish to express
themselves publicly before any definite steps
be taken for the disposition of the bill, or
sending it baclc to conterence.
Senator Vilas will insist upon his motion to
stike out one-eighth of a cent differential on
sugar, and several Senators will hold that it
is competent to instruct the conferees to re
cede from any portion of any amendment, as
though it were an entire amendment.
Baotmobe, July 23. At the meeting of tho
executive committee ot the Old-time Teleg
raphers' Association It was decided to hold ths
