I'or the birthday auniv crsn'-y of the
great Washington was celebrated by
two of the l.'itt!d States senators
here, on the tloor of the senate, by a
list tight. The two senators from
South Carolina were the active partic
ipants in the affray. Tillman, in the
course of a speech uion the Philippine
tariff bill, math serious reflections up
on the honor of his colleague, Mc
l.auriii. In brief, he charged that his
vote in support of the ratitieatiou of
the treaty of Paris had been cast
through the exercise of improper in
lluences. TILLMAN iKrS TUT. I.IK DI1IKCT

rose to address the senate, speaking
to a question of personal privilege. He
reviewed Tillman's charges briefly,
and then denounced the statement
made by his colleague as' a "wilful,
malicious and deliberate lie."

if there was any further effort to press

The main interest of the gathering
centered in the speech of Mr. Hill, it
being his first public appearance for
several months. Among other tilings
"I speak tonight in favor of the
maintenance of the oUI landmark
democratic party. In that path there
is safety, honor, success. We trace
our political lineage back to Jeffer
son, who was author of that immor
tal protest against ltritish imperial
ism known as the declaration of inde
pendence. Opposition to Ihe precepts
and practices of imperialism was thus
one of the cardinal principles-of our
parly faith at the very inception of
ihe govern men; .
"Wo should adhere to the policy in
volved in .leffersenian expansion, the
reasonable and natural accpiiremeii t
of territory adjacent 1o our own.
Wherever the American i!ag of right
lioats it should be an eihbleni of a
free government and the aegis of con
Kelier for Cuba.
"Neither should tariff wars nor 1 us
toins duties obstruct the path of
American trade from one portion of
ihis government to another portion.
The spet tacle is at present presented
of Cuba relieved from Spanish oppres
sion only to be enslaved by tile I'nit
ed Stales in commercial bondage.
Justice demands that these imposi
tions shall cease. Nothing but self
interest stands in the way of tariff'
reform for Cuba.
"The democratic party should again
press to the front the issue of reven
ue reform. The republican principle
or practice of protection is based on
the right to use the power of govern
ment for individual purposes. Oar
republican friends make revenue in
cident and protection the main pur
pose of all tariff taxation.
"The policy of reciprocity is and
always has been a democratic policy.
We believe in a strict construction of
ihe federal constitution as essential
for the public welfare. Wo believe in
home rule for stales. We favor an
amendment to the constitution pfo-vid'mg-
for the election of L'nited
Slates senators bv the people. Oppo
