The business men of the country, irre
spective of party affiliations, hare de
nounced the iniquitous McKinley bill,
and petitioned congress against adopting
the oppressive measure, but all to no pur
pose. The Gaulte, a reliable and influ
ential republican paper of Rock ford, eiys
that a protest "bearing the signatures of
nearly all the leading dry goods ap4

forwarded to Washington. The petit

No. 9,416. known as the 'McKinley tariff
bill,' because we believe the present tariff
on imports is excessive and eboulJ, in
our opinion, be reduced rather than in
creased. "The bill advances the present rate
from 25 to 100 per cent on goods that are
not. and, in our judgment, never can be
made successfully in this country. We
refer particularly to manufactured linens,
which are advanced from 35 per cent (ttie
present rate) to 70 and 100 per cent; linen
laces, from 30 to GO per cent; cotton
laces, lace window curtains and embroid
eries, from 40 to 60 per cent.
On dres goods manufactured wholly
or in part of wool we believe the present
rate, averaging over 70 per eent, is high
enough to give American manufacturers
sufficient protection, and the same senti
ment of the country will not approve of
tbe neat advance proposed by said bill
"On the same ground we protest
against the great increase on minufac
tures of silk goods, especially the enor
mous increase of rates of duty on plushes
and velvets. On cotton hosiery and un
"derwear the piopos-d rates on leading
lines are almost prohibitory.
"We be'ieve that higher ad valorem
rates ot duty would lead to further un
dervtluitions by dishonest Importers, and
would still further encourage the adul
teration of American manu'actured
goods. We are in favor of reasonable
protection to the industries of this conn

itory rates on articles and fabrics not
A similar petition had been circulated
among the business men of Davenpoit
and generally signed. The paper bore
tbe signatures of tbe following well
known citizens and merchants:

But the republican hoae of represen
tatives under the leadership of the "fat
frying" gang of 'republican politicians,
paid no . attention to these protests.
They determined at the start not only to
pass tbe bill with its heavy increase of
taiation. but arbitt aril j cut off the right
of those opposed to the iniquitous
measure to debate or amend it.
The republican high taxers are by the
course they are pursuing inviting the
vengeance of an outraged people.
Pleased with Lis management of the
office be has so conscientiously and ad
mirably filed for tbe past three years and
a half, the friends of Sheriff T. S. Silvis
have sought to impose further political
preferment upon him by wishing to send
him to the state legislature. While Mr.
Silvis is not insensible of the honorable
distinction attached to tbe position,
he feels that the democratic party has
sufficiently honored him for tbe present
at least, and very modestly refuses
to be 'a candidate at Vil. When it
is considered that a nomination for
minority representative is equal to an
election, the relf-abtiegating spirit of our
worthy sheriff is commendable and at the

kickers" would ontnumJier birn. In the
free art fiyht which occurred when Uie
clock showed the hour to l near mid
night, McKinley and his lieutenants
seemed as fresh and as full of fight as they
were twelve hours liefore. With Cannon
and several of the Republican leaders
against him, McKinley fought the fight
for the artisti, and won even when John
Allen, the funny man, tried to break up
the dignity of the bouse by sinking a par
ody on 'Rock-a-Bye Baby.1
Klotiaence Made Them Tired.
Seldom does such a scene occur as the
one of late Tuesday uiht in the bouse as
it grew near 1 1 o'clock. The art amendment
came up, and although the members were
tired and sleepy, they stirred themselves
up. and the debate was spirited and inter
esting. The galleries were verv nearly full.
and a remarkable thine; was that the ladies
in tbe crowd remained to tbe very end of
tbe session. hile the vinegar amend
ment was nnder debate, it seemed as if ev
ery one present intended to speak until
the majority got tired, and whenever one
arose to address the house he was greeted
with cries of "Oh, my!" "Yon are not going
to speak, are yon?" When one said he in
tended to review the eight days' debate.
there was an actual groan and cries of
All on Hand in the Morning;.
But the long session of Tuesday did not
have any effect of making the attendance
meagre yesterday. . When the hour of as
sembly arrived every member was in his
seat and the cralleries was crowded.
Everybody above and below were ripe for
fun, and fun ruled the last hour of the
debate. Democrats and Republicans saw
the folly of attempting to ingraft any
amendments on the bill, and so the time
between 1 1 and 12 was devoted to the ac
commodation of several members who had
a few "final words" and "last appeals" to
utter. The house was in an uproarious
mood from the start. Chairman Grosve
nor was wholly incapable of maintain
ing order and finally gave it up and let
the scene run not.
It Was o Cae to Talk.
Nobody was In the humor for oratory
that Ls to listen to It and Ilaker bod a
time of it getting his amendment before
the bouse to impose as high duty on for
eign products imported into this country
as are charged by foreign countries on
similar products of this country.
Joe Whee'er replied to Itaker w-ith some
fiery remarks on lager beer, which cre
ated uproarious laughter on the Demo
cratic side. Anderson of Kansas cot off a
few words about the farmer and lumber,
but the noise was so great that nobody
could understand a word he said. Ander
son lifted his voice until it nearly split
the dome, but the only sound ot recogni
tion he could get were mock cries of "loud
er" from the Democratic side.
Butterworth'B Farting Shot.
The scene at this time was very excit
ing. People in the galleries rose and every
member was on his feet. Above all then
din rose the great voice of Ben Butter
worth, who finally found opportunity to
get off another shot at the lack of time ac
corded for the consideration of so impor
tant a measure. The Democrats greeted
this final shot with a storm of applause,
in tbe midst of which Henderson of Iowa,
after wildly beating the air for a moment,
demanded that the remaining few mo
ments lie given to voting on amendments
without debate. This was greeted with
jeers and cat-calls. Brewer of Michigan,
who has a mighty voice, got the floor to
say a few words in favor of the hill in gen
eral, but nobody wanted to hear him and
the londer he talked the thicker came the
mock applause and cat-calls.
The Curtain King Down.
It was three minutes to 12 when the bell
rang for .the fall .of the curlain on as
laughable a scene as was ever witnessed in
the house. Tbe chair stood, watch in
hand, keeping up an incessant din with
his gavel. Members were shouting "order"
from both sides of the chamber. Repub
licans were cheeringand waving aloft books
and papers. . Democrats were laughing
and showering jeers across the aisle. The
space in front of the speaker's desk was
jammed, as well as the middle aisle. In
the midst of this excited throng stood the
tall form of Briggs of California, wildly
gesticulating and trying to lift his voioe
above the din. Members nearest him
slapped his back and - yelled, "Go it
Briggs," "Hurrah for Briggs," "Louder
Briggs." . .
Krd Still the Clamor. - I
Amid this storm the minute-hai d point
ed to 12 and Speaker Reed monnt-sd to his
chair, and, seizing the gavel, brought it
down with a "thwack" and tbe gnat tariff
debate was over. It took him about a
minute to restore order and g-t every
member in bis seat, and then, mid al
most breathless silence, the bill with its
amendments was reported to the house
with a recommendation that it pass.
While yet silence reigned McKinley rose

The Last Resistance and Tote,
All the amendments upon which votes
were demanded having been disposed of,
the last resort of the opposition a motion
to recommit was presented and rejected,
the Democrats applauding wher Carlisle

publicans returning the compline ent when

derisive in its character. Rut one Repub

and so ended the great tariff struggle of

The Bill in the Senate.
The tariff bill will probably reach the
senate to-day or to morrow. - Tl e greater
Irt has been through the ngrossing
clerks' hands in anticipation of its pass
age. The senate finance committee has
not considered formally how it will deal
with the tariff question, but informal
talks amons members develop the belief
that extended bearings Will not be given.
A few of the representatives of more im
portant industries may be heard from
time to time, but most of the t.rguments
will be submitted in writing. Allison will
have charge of the bill. The f eneral ex
pectation is that the bill will I e reported

secret session held, at the clos.j of which
the senate a'l journed.
From the time of coming to " mler" at 11
a. m. nntil noon the house was a scene of
laughable confusion. The on!y amend
ment offered and voted upon w is one pro
viding that all articles imporu-d into this
country shall pay no less ara eof duty
than other countries impose on similar
a rti les imported from the l"ni:ed State.
The amendment was rejected. At 12 m.
McKinley moved that the con mittee rise
and report the hill to the houst . The mo
tion was carried, and as soon a order was
restored McKinley demanded the previ
ous question on the third reading of the
bill; carried. yeas 101, nays 14.
The first vote on the bill in
the house was on the increase
of duty on tin-piste and it carried by 1
majority l.V to 149. Among tbe Repub
licans voting with the Democrat were
Butterworth. Henderson of lews, Mason
and Taylor of Illinois. Then three amend
ments were defeated in succession, as fol
lows: Raising tbe duty on ya;-n made of
jute to 35 cents, the 30 cents in the bill be
ing a typographical error; making the
duty imposed on woolen ,it d worsted
yarns, etc, valued at not more than 30
cents a potlud, twice that on it pound of
raw wool; making the duty on woolen
and worsted cloths, knit good, etc., val
ued at not less than 80 centv a pound,
three times that imposed on a pound of
wool of the third class. On ea h of these
votes several Republicans vot-d with the
Democrats, while others refused to vote.
The above were the only amendments re
jected, and after a motion to re. commit was
defeated, the bill was passed "iy a vote of

representing the brewing interests in near

interests were in a I lore hope
ful condition than they were a
year ago. The attempt to obt tin national
legislation was referred to and the mem
liers warned to increase tbei- vigilance.
The secretary said that the brewers were
in favor of a thorough investif ation of the
effects of the liquor traffic, fnd though

ies from prosecuting officers asking what
course they shall pursue with the dealers
in original packages. Yesterday he ad
dressed them a letter instructing them as
to their duty. In which he says that the
decision of the supreme court in the
"original package" case is In opposition to
the Prohibitory law of Kansas, in opposi

supreme court in the case of the "State of
Kansas vs. Fulker," decided at the Janu

views of a large majority of the people of
Only Foreign Importer Safe.
He then continues: "The decision was
rendered by a divided court. The better
law and the better rea.sxm are to be found
in the dissenting opinion of Justices Gray,
llarlau and Brewer. I acknowledge the
authority of the decision, but I am not dis
posed, by reason of the foregoing facta, to
acknowledge the authority further than
the facts in the case and the language
made use of by the court reouire. It is
the foreign or non-resident Importer who
sells in the original unbroken packages
that In protected by the decision, and no
one else. Where there is evidence that the
person claiming to sell intoxicating liquor

"No single bottle of intoxicating liquor,
however securely it may be corked or
sealed, can constitute the 'original pack

that particular form. Where one or more
snch iiottles are imported together and
shipped in a closed or open lox, or in sep
arate compartments of a closed or open
case, the entire box or case and its con
tents constitute the 'original package,'
It is my ml vice, therefore, that every man
who sells intoxicating liquors in 'original

less of the leciion.
Nevada. Ia., May 22. At the owning of
court here yesterday Judge liiudman, in
his charge to the grand jury, gave the
original ackage business a black eye in
this section. He charged them that not
withstandiugthelatedecision of the United
States supreme court no terson has a right
in thl-. state to keep a place for the side of
intoxicating liquors of any kind, either in
original packages or otherwise, aud said it
was the sworn duty of the jurors to report
to the court by indictment any persou en
gaged in the keeping of any such place,
without regard to here such liquors came
IHrtVrs nith the Supreme Court.
He takes the ground that the state has
the inherent right to prohibit and abate
nuisances and punih jiersons engaged in
maintaining a nuisance within its borders
and that the question of interstate com
merce has nothing to do with it That the
keeping ot a place for the sale of liquors
as a beverage is a nuisance, whether dealt
out in original packages or some other
way. and that the late decision is not in
conflict with this view.

San Diego are iuvolved, according to the
revelations. San Diego appear to have
been the headquarters of the filibusters.
English Capitalists Involved.
The general outline of the plan, it is
claimed, was for the Mexican Ijnd and
Colonization company, composed of
wealthy Englishmen owning possessions
on the pe:iiustila,to place in the hands of a
well known San Diego capitalist f t(i,ixO,
to be used in advancing the interests of
the filibusters. The large warehouse of
an English company at EnsenaLi was to
be filled with arms, ammunition and pro
visions for the use of the revolutionists.
Complaints . train t Mexico.
The orTiitrs of the English company
claim that the Klicy of the Mexican of
ficials in Iwer California has been ruin
ous to the land interests of the company,
which has been obliged to spend t housands
of dollars in protecting its interests, and
the salvatiim of the company, they assert.
finally dei-iuls upon securing the annexa
tion. A lobby has been working at Wash
ington City in the c-ompany's interest, but
as the prostiects of congressional action
were unfavorable, a filibustering expedi
tion was agreed upon.
Plans of the Conspirators.
Two propositions were discussal. One
wastocapture Ensenada. the other to in
troduce a large number of Americans on
the peninsula, ostensibly as railroad la
borers, to capture the Mexican in;m of
war Democsrta, and at the same time give
a picnic in honor of the Mexican oilicials,
and in the midst of the festivities capture
the garrison and seize tEe roads and tele
graph lines. Simultaneous rUimrs at the
Alamo and Tia J nana were to take place.
A Chlel Amang Them.
Several meetings of the conspirators
took place in March and April and at one
of these the facts U-caine known to a
newspaicr man. When 1 he jH-ninsula had
lieen seized a provisional government as
to be declared on or a!xut Aug. 1. and
martial law was to 1 enforced. The land
of the penin'tila was to lie nationalized.
and a eaeefnl order of things ccured. ne
gotiations for annexation to the I tiited
States would follow.
