Wamiixgtox. July 30. There has been
no meeting of the Democrat c conferrees
on the tariff bill since the adjournment at
10:i Saturday, and the Democratic man
agcrs on the part of the senate are as yet
uninformed as to what will be the purport
of the reply which the Democratic man
agers in behalf of the house will make In.
response to the senate's position that the
conference mnst accept the senate bill.
Having at the Saturday meeting made
plain to the house members of the confer
ence why this demand ou their part had to
be made and why it should be accepted
the senators have sii ce the adjournment
on Saturday given very little attention to
tnriff affairs, and say when spoken to that
there is nothing for them to do until the
bouse members make known their accept
ance or rejection of the proposition.
No Reason for a Lone 1'aricy.
If it is accepted they think the report
can be mado after a brief conference; if re
jected, they say they see no rcasou for a
long parley, as under the circumstances
they cannot abate t heir demand without
endangering the passage of the bill in the
senate. The senate conferrees have said
to those of the house that to strike out tbe
differential on sugar probably means the
loss of eight votes in the senate, and also
that it is equally important that coal and
iron ore should remain in the bill as ar
ranged in tbe senate. It does not appear
una any uuucuity lias onsen over coal
and iron ore in the present conference, and
the house members have indicated a will
ingness to leave them as agreed upon iu
the senate if the sugar schedule can lie
changed so as to eliminate tliesjieci.il
duty of one-eight of a cent ou rcuued
Senators Defend the Sugar Srhednle.
This is the only question of real conten
tion and the senators are apparently de
termined to stand firm for the retention of
the differential. Furthermore, they do
not appear to be holding out for the sen
ate schedule purely on the ground of ex
pediency, but they also coutcud for the
justice of the proposition to give proiee
tion to the refiners. When Chairman
Wilson, of the bouse managers, advanced
the proposition ou Saturday that the ad
valorem rate of 40 per cent, would, on a-
couut of the difference in the market
price of raw and refined sugars, give the
retlners an advantage of about a quarter
of a cent a pound, he waatti&od 'q wj
sharply by the senate couferrecs, some of
whom displayed figures to prove the con
trary, while others said tuo proposition
was too absurd for argument.
A Deadlock Seems I'retty Certain.
It looks very much like a deadlock un
less the house conferrees yield, as there is
no indication of any purpose on the part
of the senators to do so. The senate con
ferrees talk frankly abont the situation
uud plant themselves lirmly upon the
proposition that the sentiment iu the sen
ate is such that, it must lie the senate bill
or no bilL Tbe full conference between
mi uihcrs of the two houses with Ilepubli-c-ins
as well as I):-mocrats'present will lie
held nt 1 o'clock tins afternoon. Previous
lo that time the Democratic managers of
the two houses will meet informally, when
it is presumed the senate couferrees will
be informed of the decision of their house
HOUSE WILL FLATLY REFUSE.
Its Couferreen Will Nut Yield an Iota in
The decision which tho senators are
awaiting will be a flat refusal ou the part
of jhe house conferrees to yield to the sen
ate demand iu whole or iu part. The de
termination to give this negative rcspouse
bus been agreed on dehuitely by t he house
conferrees. It had been expected that the
intense feeling of the last week would
clear the atmosphere and lead to some
cumniou ground oi agreement, but when
the house conferrees Were met by a de
mand to yield in toto ou sugar, coal aud
iron they assumed nn equally aggressive
and determined stand. At their meeting
each of the four house mem hers was asked
to state if his views had changed iu any
way -ince the former conference.
I. . davelope 1 that not one of the four
had nioJitied bis v-ews in the slightest.
They were, therefore, a unit iu declining
ta accede to tne demand ot the four senate
conierre-s, and the solid front of opKsi
tiou will lie made kuowu to the senators
this morning. Iu sp-.-akmg of the pru
liuiii.ury meeting one of the house con
ferrees suid the breach was wider than
ever, us it was accentuate;! by the iutensu
personal feeling that had b.-eti uroUseJ.
lie added that if a house c tacus was aeld
there would be lines if argument present
ed nud influence brought, to bear which
would result iu euUoisiug tue resisteuee
of the house conferrees, aud thus making
the contest mure determine! thau ever.
This view is shared by all the huuse con
ferrees us well as Speaker Crisp.
There have been tariff conferences at
the White House, tarilf conferences of the
senate aud house conferrees, tariff confer
ences of tlie Democratic bouse couferrees.
uii! liually nn effort for a house tariff
caucus ou TuesJay to consider some
meaus of solving the tariff problem. Out
of it all has come no exact and definite
conclusion except the one stated above.
Among those who conferred with Cleve
land were Wilson aud Catchiugs, and it
was seated by those closely connected with
administration affairs that the president
was as linn now as when tie wrote the
faun us letter to Wilsou against yielding
what be regards as vital principles ot
It was stated last night that Springer, of
Illinois, has been persuaded by the house
Democratic leaders to withdraw bis call
for a caucus of the Democratic meiutiers
of tbe house which was to have been held
tomorrow if the tariff couferrees did not
report an agreement by that time.
