NOT A POSSIBILITY
Senate Looking for a Non-Parti'
san Tariff Bill.
HILL BATS IT CA5H0T BE BUILT.
Statesmen Try a Few Propositions and How
They Were Becelvvd Sherman's Blaaaat
Congressional Failure to Provide Revenue
Hepburn Cilve tbe Honor a Roast on the
Hirer and Harbor Bill Warm Talk in
Both National Chamber.
VASHfiCGT0X, May 23. It was warm
weather in both houses yesterday, In the
a-nato Sherman denounced legislative
Inaction as to the revenue, and Hill de
nounced the Butler bond bill. In the
house Hepburn grew vehement in de
nunciation of the river and harbor, bill
nd the men who passed it "and they
laughed him to scorn." The very first
thing in the senate wns a motion by But
ter to take up his anti-bond bill and it
was . adopted 3t to 30 the nays being as
follows: Republicans Allison. Baker.
Burrows, Chandler, Davis, Frye. Gal
linger. Hale, Hawley, McBride, McMillan,
Morrill, Nelson, Sherman and Wetiuore.
Democrats-Caffery, Gray, Hill, Lindsay
and Vilas. Hill immediately took tho
floor to "talk the bill to death" If he could.
Crime and "Alleged" Crimes.
"The alleged crime of 73 will be as noth
ing," said Hill, "to the crime which will
be perpetrated If this bill passes and be
comes a law. It is a bold proposition to
repeal the resumption act, to repeal tho
only law which exists for the redemption
3f the paper cSrrency of the country. By
declaring that for no purposes whatever
4hall money bo raised on bonds this meas
ure is in effect a repeal of the act ef 1875.
It is a startling proposition. It will not
solve the silver question. It will simply
put in peril the finances of the country."
The senator spoke derisively of this "self-
eonfesscd Populist measure." At 2 p. m.
the I Mind bill lost its place by a senate
rule nnd was immediately returned there
to by a vote of 3! to 27 and Hill went on.
"Plain, Hold, Open Repudiation."
"This is plain, bold, open repudiation,"
exclaimed Hill. "Itepudiation, the dis
honor of your paper money and the dis
honor ol your country Is what this meas
ure means. Tho 'crime of '7:j' pales into
insignificance beside this contemplated
crime. This measure takes the govern
ment by the throat; it holds up the treas
ury." Just here a debate on tho possibility of
passing a revenue measure stonned Hill,
and nfter that wns over he proceeded. He
s:ilil that the senate, as at present consti
tuted with a large he would not say un
scrupulous minority in the licpuhlican
jiarty willing to put silver to the front in
everything, nnd with tho Democratic side
divided, would find it impossible to frame
a tariff bill. A non-partisan tariff bill was
What He VToul.l Do If President.
Divided ns the senate is how could any
man outside of an insane asylum promise
a tariff for revenue.. "If I were the presi
dent of the t'nltcd States," he added,
"(which from present prospects it looks as
if I never would lie) I should take tho hist
dollar from tlie treasury to seo that the
plislgii of the government should bo
kept," and he misjudged, he said, the
character nnd force of the present execu
tive if he did not pursue this course.
"Talk about the previous follies of the
party," he said, "this would be the worst
step ever taken. The Democratic party
can stand a good deal, but it cannot stand
this.' Here Hill yielded to permit Baker
of Kansas to talk against tho biiL
"AS OITRACK AM) A SHAME"
If Congress Adjourn Without Providing
Knongh Itrvrann Says Mirrman.
The tariff talk was started by a series of
questions George asked Hill, the substance
of which was whether it was not best to
put aside all partisanship, both sides com
ing together in a proper measure to aid
Sherman was quickly on his feet. "I say
In all seriousness," he said, "that if this
congress adjourns without giving tho
treasury relief it will be an outrage and a
shame. It will lie a disgrace falling in
large iart on tho senate. We are going
on like a siicndthrift squandering his for
tune. "Tho senate refuses to give the presi
dent proper powers for relief. This meas
ure the bond prohibition is tho act of a
liankrupt nnd of a dishonest bankrupt.
If we do not act." concluded
Sherman, "the president of the L'nitcd
States will he justified in calling us hack
here by the 1st of July to do our duty."
Gsay followed., "I agree with the Ohio
senator that a crisis in the history of tho
country and the history of the senate is at
hand," he said. "1 agree that nn adjourn
ment without a measure of relief would
be an outrage and a shame. And I sny to
the senator that if his committee will pro
pose a measure to Increase the revenue, a
measure truly non-partisan and solely to
raise revenue, he will find support on this
idc of the eliamlier."
"The senator's proposition." answered
Sherman, "is that we should disregard the
bill of the house that lxidy charged with
Initiating revenue legislation; that we
should tear up the Dingley bill and make
another. He must be more broad and
lilieral in his offers."
"I thought .the senator Sherman did
not understand himself." said Gray.'-whcn
he spoke of a non-partisan patriotic meas
ure. He now. proposes that we must ac
cept the Dingley bill, which in my judg
ment will not yield sufficient revenue to
George now came forward with a de
tailed propiwition which attracted marked
attention, i He mid he would pledge his
one vote to the Republican ecnators it
they would get together and frame a prop
er relief measure. He would accept in such
a measure a tax on lieer, a revenue tax on
wool, lumber., tea, coffee, an increase on
tobacco, cigars and cigarettes and a fair
revenue duty on any agricultural product
imported from Canada to the United
Dubois, one of the five Republicans who
voted again considering tbe tariff hill,
in Ironical tones said that of course it
would be easr to get together and pass a
revenue tariff. Tsui, with a free ailvar
amenamcnt. zon will recall, he said,
"that five senator voted against taking
np the Dingley biiL Every one of those
five senators has been indorsed by his
state. Every one of those five senators
will be a delegate to the national conven
tion." Speeches were made for the resolution
by Teller, Mills, Stewart and Allen and
gainst It by Lodge, Clarke of Wyoming,
Gray and Sherman, and a partial agree
tucet was reached to have a vote Monday.
