Assails llio Measure.
Washinotos, May 9. Th house
went into committee of the whole on
the tariff lull, after nureeiiu; to close the
general achate on Saturday evi'liiug.
Mr. MoKinl.'y took tho floor in sup
port of the hill. In the last political
campaign the tarill hail been the ab
sorbing (ini'stion before tho people. It
seemed to him that no extended discus
Bion of this jfreat principle was ex
pected, or re.piired, or necessary under
existing conditions: for if any one thing
waa settled bv the political contest of
lUtW, it was that the protective policy a
promulgated by the Republican party
in its platform, as maintained by the
Republican party through a Ion? series
of vears. should be secured in any legis
lation which was to be had by a con
gress chosen in this groat contest audou
this mastering issue.
The Internal nevemip.
The bill was in full recognition of the
principle and policy of the protective
tariff. Thi' I i 1 1 has not abolished the
internal revenue tat, as the Kepublicau
party had pl-djed itself to do in the
event that th it aliolition was necessary
to preserve the protective system. In.
cause tlie committee had found that the
abolition of the one was not necessary to
the preservation of the other. The bill
recommended the abolition of all social
taxes, and the reduction of tho tax on
tobacco and suutl: and it removed the
restrictions upon the growers of toliacco.
With tli-se exceptions, the internal
revenue law stood as at present. If these
recommendation wre agreed to, inter
nal taxation would be reduced a little
over lu.ti,oiHi, The committee also
recotnineii.i a provision requiring all im
ported articles to bear a stamp or mark
indicating the country iu which such
articles are manufactured.

Trenton, May fl.-The great debate
of the session liegnn In the Semite cham
ber, when Senator Werts uiovel that
the joint committee's bill 1r substituted
for the Carter bill, which was hrat
called np. He alluded to the fact that
all the petitions U'fore tho senate were
for an official ballot. This was merely
a scheme to have the state, ounty or
city print and distribute Tlie bullota.
The Is-st I Hint I'erorm scneme was iiiai
which made corruption the most nun

be devised which would entirely do
away with bril y. So long as men
were dot. rmiia t buy votes, so long

no mortal man could tell how many
men voted. This scheme nlwolutely pre
Senator Werts then discussed the
difference Wtwoeti the two bills as to
the keeping of the ballots within the
polling place. The only reason they did
this was because the tickets had to be
marked by the voter. Me said this
marking system was a bad one. It was
much more complicated than the free
distribution system. Cards of instruc
tion had to Is issued to am the voter.
The system laid down in the com
mittee's bill requiring that no marks
should lie made was lunch simpler and
Is-tter. The Australian system pro
vided for two ballot Imixcs and two
tickets, for which there was no reason.
but it was gol ten up to annoy the voter.
Continuing, the senator took up the
matter of circulating the oliieml ballot
outside. He claimed the circulation of

provided by tin- Australian system was

Senator Carter, of I'.nrlington. the in
troducer ot the Australian hill, then
took the tb Hir for his oill. He said the
system was deinan l d by the fanners
ami lalsr oru.iuixatiotis of the state.
The charges thit it disfranchised voters
or . unloved tie'lii were found to 1m tin-
true. The bill was no exis rinii lit. It
had Is'i n tried iu other states, lu Mas-
Ki.'llllselfs it was successfully used.
Siiatoi I in tor coin limed to show that
the Australian system was the one the
iM-oi.le wanted. He criticised the com-
lnitbr's bill as lo the providing of half
the number of tickets for indeis ndeiit
voter as for others. Senator Carter
claimed that the bill gave the hinders an
omiortiiuity to inddle tickets at the

Senator McDonald next took the floor.
