The Victory in the Senate.
Yesterday the amendment to the ,
sundry civil bill, providing for the
payment of the bounty still due on
the sugar crop of 1883 and eight- I
tenths of a cent a pound on the
crop of 1894, passed the Senate by
a majority of eleven votes, in spite
of the vigorous opposition of
Brioe, Hoar, McLaurin and other
prominent Senators. The passage
of the amendment was the result
of the able management of Sena.
tors Blackburn and Marderson,
together with the pressure which
was brought to bear on the Senate
fre· all sections of the country
and the victory thus won, after so
amny reversees, has given the su
gar producers much encourage
ment

does not provide for the payment
of all the bounty which the go
vernment owes the planters, but
the latter realize that the Senate
u nwilling to vote the full
at)eVat, ad therefore were glad
to take what they could get. The
I eight-tenths of a cent per pound
' on the crop of 1894 will enable the
planters, however, to meet their
obligations and save themselves
o from ruin, providing of course,
s the House will agree to the amen
,, dment. What the fate of it will

Sb made to get it through, but if
the House has any regard for jus
,1 tie or fair dealing the bounty
amendment will be agreed to
promptly. The danger, it seems,
lies in the fact that the majority
of the members of the conference
committee are known to be oppo
sad to it, but we are inclined to
blieve, however, that if a deter
mined fight is made in the House
ithe justioe to which the sugar pro
d ducers are entitled will be gran
