BA3TDITS OX A STREET CAR.
Hold-t Attempted l Broad Daylight a
Chicago, Dec. 10. Two masked men
held revolvers to a Wentworth avenue
car conductor's' bead at Adams and
Clark streets at 8 a. m. yesterday and
demanded his cash. Almost as remark
able as the boldness of the highwaymen
was the nerve of the conductor, who
pushed the men aside and alarmed the
fifteen passengers In the car. Imme
diately there was a great commotion
and the would-be robbers with an oath
Jumped from the car and ran down
Adams street The attempted hold-up
occurred Just as the policemen were
changing from the night to the day
watch, and not an officer was in sight.
The manner in which the highway
men went about their work was not
at all startling, except from the cool
ness with which they made the attempt
to accomplish their object. It was
when the conductor had started to col
lect his fares that the attempt was
made to turn the tables upon him. The
two men had been standing with their
backs to him looking at the hundreds
of hurrying clerks passing along Clark
"Fares, please," he remarked.
'Turn over your coin and be quick
about it," was his reply.
The two revolvers looked dangerous.
but as the Ftreet car man said after
ward, the time of day was all against
the highwaymen and fear did not enter
his mind. The door of the car still
remained open and he made a dive for
It past the robbers, attracting the at
tention of the passengers and at the
same time calling to the motorman,
who stopped the car.

Washington. Dec. 10. The senate yes
terday by the decisive vote of 35 to 21
adopted a motion to take up the Ding
ley tariff-silver bill. Unexpected and
surprising as the action was it did sot
have the significance which the vote
itself appears to convey. Immediately
following it Aldrich of Rhode Island,
one of the Republican members of the
finance committee, moved to recommit
the bill to that committee, and this mo
tion was penidng when at 2 o'clock the
morning hour expired and the entire
matter lapsed, as though no vote had
been taken. Neither the bill nor the
Aldrich motion to recommit enjoys any
privilege or precedence as a result of
the action yesterday. It served, how
ever, for lively parliamentary fencing
between Allen (Pop.) of Nebraska, the
author of the motion, and Chandler.
Hale and Aldrich, as well as for an ex
position of the uncertain and shifty
elements within the senate when a vote
is precipitated on an Important public
Allen Taanta the Republicans,
The debate at times was sharp and
personal. Allen is very blunt in his
expressions, and he taunted the Repub
lican senators fcr shrinking from the
Dingley bill after cor 'ucting a tariff
campaign. "It has gone cut from the
powers that be in the re publican par
ty," said Allen at one point, "that with
the incoming administration we are to
hare an extraordiary session of con
gress for the purpose of revising the
tariff laws." Thus Allen ran along,
touching on many points that have
hitherto been reserved for caucus con
sideration. Chandler reminded Allen
that not only had tariff won. but free
silver by the United States alone was
lost in the recent election and he urged
Allen to aid In a genuine effort to exe
cute the will of the people.
Republican Expectations In March.
Hale took occasion to state with
frankness that the Republican senators
expected an actual majority in the next
senate which would make tariff leg
islation more easy of accomplishment
than it is now. Aldrlch's first move was
to have the bill referred back to the
finance committee with instructions to
strike off tho silver an, nil me nt. but
later he accepted the suggestion of Har
ris to omit the instructions. It was in
this form that the question of recom
mital was pending when - o'clock ar
rived and cut off the debate.
Wanted to "Keel the Enemy."
When asked to explain the motive of
his, mot ion in the senate yesterday to
take up the Dingley tariff bill Senator
Allen replied: "I had no motive ex
cept, as we used to say In the army, to
feel the enemy. I wanted to satisfy
myself and the country as to the atti
tude of the Republicans towards this
measure which they have professed to
be anxious to have become a law, and
I think I have at least succeeded in
demonstrating that they have no in
tention of trying to do anything." The
senator declined to say whether he
would in any way revive the question,
but he intimated that he probably
Wants I'ncle Sam To Be a "Grabber."
The feelings of some of the senators
whose sentiments have been well
known for a long time on the Cuban
issue were crystallized in three reso
lutions which were laid on the table and
are likely to evoke much eloquence in
the future. Cameron's came first. It
acknowledges the independence of the
Cuban republic, at the same timeoffer-
ing Spain our "friendly" offices. Mills
had one that simply orders the presi
dent to take possession of the Island
"until the people of Cuba can organize
a government of their own." etc. Call'

ceivable subject of national legislation

the Senate to Investigate
Joint Tranc Association.
Washington, Dec. 10. At the instance
of Chandler the senate yesterday re
solved upon an investigation of the
Joint Traffc Railroad association. The
injuiry is to be conducted by the com
mittee on inter-state commerce. The
resolution providing for the investiga
tion requires that inquiry be made
whether the association agreement
provides against competition by per
mitting a majority of are board of traf
fic managers make rates and by per
mitting the imposition of fines in mon
ey in case of a violation of the regula
tions of the association by Its mem
bers, or whether If this is the case It is
not opposed to the inter-state commerce
law. The Inquiry is also to be extended
to the agreements between the flour
millers and the window glass manu
facturers of the country.
Chandler also introduced a bill in the
senate for a 10 per cent, reduction of
the salaries of federal employes. The
reduction is to begin on the SOth of
June. 1837. and continue for three
years, and Include all officers and em
ployes of the United States whose sal
aries are p'd from the treasury ei
ther annually, quarterly, monthly or
semi-monthly, except those whose com
pensation cannot be diminished dur
ming their continuance in office.
