KILLED A TAX LAW
BOTH HOUSES REPEAL THE ONE
CENT TONNAGE TAX ON
SPENCER FOUGHT IT HARD-
BIT THE SENATE PASSED IT OVER
HIS BEST OPPOSI
HOI vi; LET IT SLIP THROUGH
Without Any Comment, Almost, and
l»y a Vote That Was Conclusive
— New Tax Proposed.
After shrewdly maneuvering for sev
eral days, the senators who wanted to
rt;>eal the mining tonnage tax, as sug
gested by State Auditor Dunn in his
annual report, got it through yester
day, in a somewhat summary manner,
It is true, but none the less of legality
Senator Spencer, of Duluth, who had
evidently been entirely unprepared for
the onslaught, was caught between the
wind and the water, and thrown high
and dry on the beach.
In vain he pleaded, piteously, almost
tearfully, for senatorial courtesy; anon
he denounced his opponents for "in
decency" and "discourtesy," and the
like epithets; but it was in vain.
He was beaten ere he started, and
he knew it.
The bill, which was introduced only
yesterday morning by Senator Wyman,
Is very short. Jt may be said to consist
of but a single sentence repealing a
law expressly referred to. although it
is prefaced by a pair of whereases re
ferring to the constitutional provision
that taxes shall be equitably dis
tributed, and to the attorney general's
opinion that the old law was uncon
When the bill had been read the first
time, the fight was on.
Senator Wyman asked for a call of
the senate and then moved that the
rules be suspended and his bill placed
on its final passage. He read the figures
showing what had been paid in since
the law of 1881 was passed, and also
read the opinion of the attorney gen
eral to the effect that the law was un
constitutional. He also said that the
slate auditor and treasurer had refused
to accept tax payments offered there
under, insisting that the mine owners
should pay a valuation tax the same
as other property.
Senator Spencer thought that it was
discourteous and underhanded in the
fcenator from Hennepin to endeavor
to secure the passage of so Important
a bill In such a snap-shot manner. He
objected to the suspension.
Senator Thompson said it was not a
Bnap-shot. It had been before the peo
ple for six months; it had been before
the senate ever since the report of the
auditor had been received. The law
was not only clearly unfair taxation,
compared with What other property
■was paying, but it had been declared
unconstitutional and should be wiped
off the statute books.
Senator Greer said that it was un
usual to take such hasty action on this
bill, as had characterized the pass
age of the constitutional amendments
in the closing hours of the last session
He wanted the bill to go to the Judi
ciary committee to determine its legal
standing. The amounts paid by thes^
mines, lie said, could be shown to be
Just as great in proportion as the tax
on the lumber, elevator and milling
companies in Minneapolis. The^senate
The Wonderful Experience of a Man

No one who has never experienced the m!s

that filled the heart of Mr. Andrew Taleeen,
Who resides at 856 Marican street, St. Paul.

surprised by the bill if he had read

to repeal this law.
Senator McHale said it had been

by any senator. A layman In the law

The senator's speech was interrupted
by the inaugural festivities, after
! which he resumed. The senator from
1 St. Louis, he said, two years ago had
, boasted that within the space of two
] townships in his county there waa as
\ much value in iron ore at current
: prices, as double the entire assessed
j valuation of the entire state, yet it paid
j only one cent per ton, not on the whole
i value of the output, but only on that
: which left the state of Minnesota.
Senator Morgan said that while the
! gross earnings tax had been made valid
I by a subsequent constitutional amend
[ ment, that amendment validated it 'n
| express terms. He did not believe th*
I recent constitutional amendment valid
ated the tonnage tax.
Senators Heneman and Ringdal
further supported the bill.
Senator Wyman moved the previous
question. The vote to suspend the
! rules had barely thirty-six votes aa
required for that susi>ension.
The roll call showed the following vote:
Yeas— Bair. Cole, Cronkhite, Currier, Dun
ham, Hanna, Heneman, Hodge, Howard,

When the bill was read a third time,
Senator Culkin rose to speak. Senator
Wyman said he was out of order. Sen
ator Greer wanted to recommit with
instructions to report back not later
than Tuesday. Senator Yale asked if
that was time enough to give the lobby
time to get here. Senator Greer wildly
asked if that question was directed to
him. Senator Yale said Senator Culkin
had the floor. The point of order was
sustained and the roll call ordered.
Senator Culkin, the first no, explained
that he voted against it not on account
of the haste with which it was being
run through, but because it instituted
by indirection a new scheme of tax
ation, and the constitution provided
that all such bills should originate in
the other house. Senator Dunn explain
ed that he favored the bill, but not its
haste. Senator Greer voted no, explain
ing that any senator should have the
courtesy of delay on measures affecting
his own district.
Senator Morgan said there was no
discourtesy involved. The reasons for
the urgency of passage had already
been clearly stated.
Senator Spencer regreeted that the
opposition had not had the "decency"
to make the bill at leas/t a special or
der for a day or two later.
It was a measure affecting his dis
Senator Sperry said that the term
courtesy was being strained. That
measure was not a local one, but it
affected the whole state.
Senator Wyman said he had not been
discourteous, he thought. He had been
threatened with many sorts of dire dis
aster if he pushed this bill, but they
had only tended to make him firmer in
his resolution to pass it. The roll call

A bill for a greater tonnage tax on
the products of mines was introduced
by Senator Sperry. It provides a tax
of 50 cents a ton on copper ore, 5 cents

of 30 cents a ton on copper and 3 cents
on pig iron is provided.

retail liquor establishments in the state.
Yesterday was the last day on which a recon

Senator Knatvold, however, holds that the

The Knatvold idea is this. The committee

The house entered into the spirit of
the inaugural ceremony and beginning
with the chaplain's prayer for the new
president down almost to the noon
lecess, every feature had more or
less reference to the scene being en
acted at Washington. Under the head
of motions and resolutions the house
passed a resolution presented by Mr.
Douglas conveying the congratulations
of the body to McKinley. This was
followed by the adoption of a resolu
tion by Mr. Underleak asking the sen
ate to attend a joint session at 11

convenient resolutions of congratula

Senator Sperry had a resolution pre
pared, which was read to the joint as
sembly and immediately afterward Mr.
Grondahl also sent up a similar doc
ument expressive of the congratulation
and hopes of the house. This afforded
a chance for a very awkward debate
involving the courtesy of the two
houses toward one another, particular
ly when Senator Spencer seconded the
motion to adopt the Grondahl version
of how the legislature felt. Mr. Staples,
on the part of the house was not to
be outdone in legislative politeness, so
he seconded the motion for the adop
tion of the Sperry resolution. He said
the last named was better English than
the former and upon this Mr. Gron
dahl withdrew his resolution and the
Senator Yale spoke first. He said
the meeting was not on account of
William McKinley, but because a new
administration waa to begin, an era
of prosperity was to dawn. He hoped
President McKinley would have the
backbone to be president in fact a 9

American he hoped every member
would vote for the resolution. He
said he had opposed McKinley's elec
tion and followed the leadersip of that
accomplished statesman and gifted
scholar, William Jennings Bryan. But
there was another reason for his
friendliness for the resolution. It was
because within a few minutes would
come to an end the administration of
the worst man who ever disgraced the
White house. (Cheers and applause.)
He paid a tribute to Mr. McKinley
as a gallant soldier and a clean and
Senator Keller arose to speak, but
the applause of the Donnelly speech
was kept up for fully two minutes,
making a very awkward pause for the

excused "the abuse of that noble man.

it was eaid "in the heat of debate."

BISMARCK, N. D., March 4.— The
most exciting session of the two houses
in the entire session was held today,
the contention being over the passage
of the bill to amend the penalty clause
of the prohibition law by changing
from "fine and imprisonment" to "fine
or imprisonment." The bill was de
feated yesterday by a close vote, and
the speaker refused to grant a roll
call. An appeal was taken and he was
sustained. Today the vote to sustain
was reconsidered, the appeal carried
and on roll call the bill was passe I
by a vote of 33 to 29, three members
changing their votes. The bill coul-3
not be sent to the senate, under the
house rules, but the rule was abro
gated and the matter went to the sen
ate, where a hot fight was had on par
liamentary grounds, the matter being
first refused and afterward received
read first and second times, referred
and reported on. It will pass tomor

for the anti-Prohibitionists. Debates
on the matter were many and acri
monious, and, when Mr. McPherson,
Populist member from Barnes county,
changed his vote, Colby, of Cass, chal
lenged his vote, saying- that McPher
son had told him |jie day before that

All in Tain.
WASHINGTON, March 4.— The fol
lowing appropriation bills failed to be

President Cleveland up to 12 o'clock to
day, when his term expired: Indian,
agricultural and sundry civil. The
general deficiency appropriation bill
failed in conference.
REED'S LAST WORDS.
His Gratitude Expressed to the
Members of All Parties.
WASHINGTON, March 4.-The house was
still in the legislative day of Tuesday when
It adjourned without day. The closing hours
were uneventful. The statesmen had worked
all night to get the sundry civil. Indian and
agricultural bills to the president, only to
have them pocket vetoed, while the general
deficiency failed of passage because the house
refused to subscribe to the half-million of
Bowman claims which the senate insisted
upon. The only feature of the closing throb
of life was the enthusiastic reception ac
corded Speaker Reed and the unanimous
standing vote of thanks tendered him.
The confusion on the floor and in the gal
leries was so great toward the c'.osing hours
that the speaker was with difficulty able ;o
maintain order. There were many expres- I
sions of regret at parting.
With hardly a dissenting voice, the house !
stood by the appropriations committee on
the deficiency bill. Thus the last hope of
this bill was gone. The turbu'.anee ceas3d
and the expiring moments of the house were
calm and serene.
As Speaker Reed mounted the rostrum the
members rose and cheered valiantly. He ac
knowledged the warm reception, and then
delivered his parting address, as follows:
"Gentlemen of the House of Representa
tives: Two years ago you were summoned
to your share of a legislative work which
could not be otherwise than disagreeable,
disappointing and unsatisfactory, for it in
volved a dismal struggle to adapt a narrow
ing income to the growing wants of a great
nation growing to be still greater. You were
•most of you untried in your new vocation.
How others have performed their share of the
task it is not for us to say. But it is proper
for me to say that your share of the divided
duty has been performed with so much readi
ness and good sense that even among the
aspirations of a heated campaign there was
no room for any attack upon the house of
"I am sincerely grateful for the kind ex
pression of your confidence and esteem; but
I am still more grateful for the dally kind
ness and good will on the part of every
member on both sides of the house. To all
of you then, gentlemen of both parties. I
offer the sincere expression of the highest

and the members hurried over to the senate
to participate in the ceremonies there.
TWO SESSIONS MERGED.
Senate Day a Xi.vture of (he \vw and
WASHINGTON, March 4.— The senate of the
fifty-fifth congress met today in extra session,
w.th Vice President Hobart presiding In pur
suance to a call of the retiring president.
The closing of the old as well as the open
ing of the new were mrrged into the bril
liant spectacle marking the advent of the
inauguration ceremony so that formal pro
ceedings were confined largely to the vale
dictory of the retiring vice president. Mr.
Stevenson, the opening address of the now
vice pres.dent. Mr. Hobart. and the swearing
into office of the new senators.
The early hours of the day were given to
examining appropriation bills. One. the gen
eral deficiency, failed in conference, and
three, the agricultural, sundry civil and In
dian failed of executive approval.
Promptly at 12 o'clock Mr. Stevenson de
clared the senate of the fifty-fourth congress
adjourned without delay and the work of the
new senate was at once taken up. The sena
tors then withdrew to the east front of the
capitol to participate in the inaugural cere
mony. On returning to the chamber a reso
