The republican party is carrying on a
campaign against free trade. We must
bear tbis in mind, for it is the easiest fact
in the world to forget. The free traders
who are being vigorously pursued are
those persons who thiok that an average
rate of duty of from 50 to 69 per cent is
too high. Old-time protectionists were
satisfied with 20 or 30 per cent. Henry
Clay would now be a free trader. Whf n
a man objects to paying a duty of 150 per
cent on bis woolen coat or bis wife's
dress, he is a free trader, and tbe repub
licans are after him, for to this complex
ion they have come at last.
The manner in which the legislative
nomination was left yesterday by tbe
county convention is far from satisfaclo

tbe position. Now tbe fight will be car
ried to the senatorial convention, and aF
over a month will elapse before tbat body
meets, the interval will be one of veia

delegttes. There is nothing, either, in
terfering with other gentlemen announc
ine themselves as candidates, and tbe
final result may be tbe selection of

the following facta in reference to tbe
On women's and children's dress goods

15.05 cents, 33 per cent; on cotton an

costing 22 cents a yard, 21 per cent; on
silk plushes costing f 2 50 a yard the ad

make a note of this); on worsted, which
have for clothing purposes largely re
placed woolens, and which now cost
cents a yard, 624 per cent; on all silk and
cotton velvet costing 45 cents a yard
tbe duty will be 08 per cent, but
on tbe all-silk velvet costing $2 25
a yard tbe duty. is only advanced
per cent; on unbleached tablecloths cost
ing 23 cents a yard it is advanced 30 per
rent. ; on lawn for women's dresses costing
cents a yard it is advanced 2 per cent.
On linen collars and cuffs tbe duty is made
prohibitory, and the tbree or four Amen
can manufacturers can charge what they
please and quickly become millionaires
Tbe duty on bottons is double; on corsets
it is largely increased, though the manu
facturers are making money fast. Tbe
duties od china and glassware are raised
both by the tariff and by the admin
Istraltve bills from 24 to 160 per
cent. On table cutlery tbe duty is beav
ily raised on all grades and doubled
on some. Tbat on razors is put up from
50 per cent to 75 and 130 per cent. On
spectacles costing f 2 a gross the duty
is raised from 45 to 335 per cent.; on
those costing $12 a gross it is raised
from 45 per cent to 85 per cent. Tbe
duty is more than doubled on wondpulp,
which needs, no protection because it is
made cheaper in tbis country than
abroad, but the new duty will support a
nice trust monopoly to he soon formed.

neys tbe cheaper the quality tbe higher
tbe tax on chemicals, photographers'
supplies, dextrine, and a hundred other
articles are all pushed up. Placing tbe
increase of prices under the bill at the
underestimated average of 10 per cent.,
the total net loss will exceed 167 millions;
but at tbe moderate of 15 per cent tbe
net loss to tbe consumers under tbe Mc
Kinley bill will exceed 300 millions of
dollars per year! Tbe bill is a rank rob

derson Incidents of the Event.
Cleveland, O., May 30. When the inn
went down last night everything was in
readiness for the dedication of tbe Garfield
memoriuL The decorations of the city are
both elaborate and artistic. Throughout
the entire lengths of Euclid avenue and
Superior street, the two principiil thor
oughfares, there is hardly a store, building
or house that has been neglected, while on
the side streets and out to tbe residence
suburbs the display of festive tokens is
very general. Tens of thousands of flags
flutter from windows and roofs, streamers
depend from the tops of eight-story build
ings clear to the sidewalk, and store win
dows for blocks have had their contents
removed to make way for artistic devices
ppropriate to the day.
A Meinmahle I'tterance.
Pictures of (re n. Garfield in military and
civilian attire, framed in immortelles, can
be counted by the hnudreds, while there
are numerous counterfeit presentments of
President Harrison, Vice President Mor
ton, and Grover Cleveland. .Not a few
pictures of tbe late Gen. Grant are also
displayed. The front of one business block
has tbe memorable inscription upon can
vas in letters nearly two feet high: "God
reigns and the government atr Washington
still lives." Some of the emblems of last
presidential campaign have also been resur
rected, and here and there visitors are re
minded that the battle cries of uTippecanoe
aud Harrison too, and also "Protection to
American industries, have not been for
gotten. Arrival of the President.
President Harrison and party arrived at
2 p. m. yesterday, and the carriage in
wbich the president was drawn to the
Euclid avenue residence of Commodore
Eels could hardly maka its way alone tbe
streets, so easier were hundreds to shake
bauds with the chief magistrate. The ar
rival was heralded by a salute fired by
the U. S. steamer Michigan, and the pres
ident was welcomed by the local reception
committee, headed by ex-President Hayes
and ex-Congressman Charley Foster. The
escort was a detachment of the Forest City
troop, of which Webb C. Hayes was in
(irand Rush to the Reception.
Over 15,ono people attempted to partici
pate in the public reception given last
night by Presideut Harrison. Less than
one-third of that number succeeded. The
reading room of the Stillman house.
which had been tendered for the event,
was transformed into a floral bower. Vice
President Morton stood on the rigbt of
the president with Attorney General Mil
ler, Postmaster General Wanamaker, and
Secretary Kusk standing iu line in the
order named. Behind the rank was
bank of roses three feet in heigbth. Out
side, the lawn, as well as Euclid avenue
for a couple of blocks either way, was
blocked with struggling people. A de
tachment of the Brooks cadets managed
to restore a semblance of order out of the
chaos of the lawn, the doors were opened
and the populace commenced to pour in.
They kept at it for two hours at the rate
of forty a minute.
Firnt Retreat for "Old Tern nip."
Gen. W. T. Sherman, who bad been
smuggled in by the kitchen door, was as
signed a place next to Secretary Kusk, but
tbe latter insisted on the veteran going
between the vice president and Attorney
General Miller. Uncle Billy stood the
hand-snaking just two minutes and then
beat a retreat and was seen no more. Hon.
Amos Townsend did the introductory hon
ors. For an hour and tbree quarters the
five firms worked like puiuphandles and
five hands took on a decidedly red and
flabby appearance. Every now nnd then
an extra enthusiastic grip would bring an
involuntary twitch iuto either Attorney
General Miller's or Mr. Wanumaker's
It Was Thoroughly Iemoertic.
No partiality was shown in the matter
of admittance. Laborers crowded on mill
Ion aires, bootblacks were intermingled
with babies; the rustic and the congress
man both took their chances in the gen
eral crush. At the end of the period
named United States Marshal Ramsdell
suggested that the president had probably
bad enougn. Ine chief executive, how
ever, said that he could stand it fifteen
minutes more, and the lnponr was re
turned. Five minutes later, however, all
nut tne president, naa given up, and con
tented themselves with bowing to those
introduced. Tbe reception came to an end
at 10 o clock, about 4,500 people having
passed through the room.

THE LEE MONUMENT UNVEILING.
Salient Ioint of the Speeches, nnd Inci
dents of the Event.
Richmond, Ta., May 30. There never
was such a gathering in this city in all its
history, in point of numbers, as that of
yesterday. Old residents liken it to that
memorable springtime of 1SA1, when the
gray uniformed troops began to gather for
the long and bloody struggle. It does not
need a vivid imagination to nee that
the two pictures, if placed side by side,
would bear a close resemblance, for then,
as yesterday, tbe busy thoroughfares were
filled with soldiery and the stars and bars
had already been flung to the breeze as the
symbol of a new confederacy. But yes
terday there were 100 Confederate em
blems where then there were but one.
Jnbal Early Introduces the Orator.
After the procession was over and the
vast throng had been brought to some
sort of order, Gen. Jnbal Early arose and
Introduced the orator of the day, Col.
Archer Anderson. Early referred briefly
to tbe beginning of tbe movement to build
a monument to Gen. Lee, and in tbe coarse
of his remarks said that be was particu
larly glad to welcome the private soldier
who did his duty before the war, during
the war, and who bad been doing bis duty
and remaining faithful to bis colors ever
The Dedicatory Oration.
Col. Anderson's oration . was an elabor
ate panegyric, eloquently delivered; a
comprehensive analysis and a brilliant
portrayal of the character and career of
the famous Confederate general. It delin
eated his social, moral and intellectual
traits, his military achievements, and bis
life work, which, in the opinion of tbe ora
tor, amply justified lavish admiration.
Comparing Lee to Washington, he said:
"It is the singular felicity of this great
commonwealth of Virginia to have pro
duced twoucb stainless captains,
and millions of our countrymen.- will this
day confirm our solemn declaration tbat
the monument to George Washington has
found its only complement and companion
in a monument to Robert Lee." Tbe speak
er said tbat Lee had been offered the com
mand of the Union army, but that "in
manifest sacrifice of all his pecuniary in
terests, he determined tbat duty bade
him Bide with his beloved Virginia."
The Day of Appomattox.
Coming to the end of. tsaVwarCoL An-
derson said: "In those hsft solt-n .n scenes,
when strong men, losing all self-control,
broke down and sobbed like chi dren, Lee
stood forth as great as in the da y of vie-1
tory and trinmph. No disaster crushed j
bis spirits; no extremity of danir rnfned
his bearing. What a ca strophe!
What a moving and pathetic contrast! On
the one side, complete and dayjding tri
nmph, after a long succession of humiliat
ing disasters; on the other, absolute run
But the magnanimity of the t onqueror,
not less than the fortitude of tbe van
quished, shone ont in the sole nn scene,
and softened its tragic outrfue f fate and
Gen. Grant's Example.
"The moderation and good sense of the
northern people breathing the large and
generous air of onr western world quickly
responded to Grant's example, and though
the north was afterward betrayed into
fanatical and baleful excess on more than
one subject, all the fiercer pa sions of a
bloody civil war were rapi'lly extin
guished. There was to be no Poland, no
Ireland in America." The orator closed
with an eloqent peroration, prefaced with
Demosthenes' words applied to Lee s
course: "I say tbat, U the event had been
manifest to tbe whole world beforehand,
not even then ought Athens to bave for
saken tbis course, if Athens hd any re
gard for her glory, or for her past, or for
the ages to come."
Gov. McKlnney's Remarks.
After tbe statue had been nn,-eilcd Gov
ernor Mc-Kinney said it was his- desire not
to perpetuate animosity or ex ite bitter
ness of feeling in any portion oi tbis coun
try, but to express the love anc adoration
of the people of tbe south for those who
had fallen in their behalf. Tl at feeling
was unconquerable and eterial. Ap
plause. Amid all tbe southern states
there existed a feeling of love fir the Con
federacy, "which," he said, "is now dead."
He named each state and the chief repre
sentatives which it had sent to the exer
cises. As he named in siiccessi m Reagan,
Longstreet, Gordon, Holt, Haiapton and
Johnston, each name was gp-eted with
prolonged cheering. "Not with sorrow do
they come," said he, "but as conquering
heroes they are here."

Washington City, May 80. A reunion
of survivors of the 103 members of the
Thirty-fourth congress who voted for, and
at last succeeded in electing, Nathaniel P.
Banks speaker of the honse of representa
tives, tendered him a banquet last night at
tbe Arlington hotel in this city. There
were present ex-Speaker Banks, Senators
Sherman, Morrill, and Dawes, ex -Senator
Cragin, and ex-Representatives Cumback
and Dodd. Tbe contest began Dec. 3, 1855,
and continued nntil Feb. 2 following.
Thomas T. Flagler, of Lockport, N. Y.,
who was one of the 103, relates the story of
the struggle ns follows:
"This great contest," said he, "was one of
the four links of prominent events which
brought about the war. Tbe repeal of tbe
prohibition of slavery ip Kansas and Ne
braska was the first link bv the Thirty-
third congress. This had so disrupted tbe
parties that not one of the many candi
dates for speaker was able to secure a ma
jority in his favor.
. now the Fight Was Won.
"After nine weeks of fruitless effort, on
Feb. 2, lSnri, a resolution was adopted by
a majority vote of 113 to 103 that a plural
ity should constitute an election. Un
der this resolution another, the 134th and
last ballot was taken. The result was
Nathaniel P. Banks, of Massachusetts,
103; William Aiken, of South Carolina,
100: Henry M. Fuller, of Pennsylvania,
Iewis O. Campbell, of Ohio, 4; Daniel j
Wells, of Wisconsin, 1. A resolution was
then passed by a majority vote declaring
Mr. Banks duly elected by a plurality
vote, and at 7 o'clock p. m., after an ex
citing and boisterous session of seven
hours, lie was escorted to his seat by
Messrs. Aiken and Fuller.

the speeches, filibustering and florid
speecbniaking which they indulged in but
made the northerners more determined to
carry their point. 1'oliticai difference

SENATORS AND THE TARIFF BILL.
TSet finally Agre I pon a Plan for Con
itiderlng the Measure.
Washington Citv, May 30. The senate
finance committee met yesterday and be
gan the consideration of tbe tariff bill.
There was a full attendance, and Carlisle
took bis seat and entered into the discus
sion of the bill with earnestness. A prop
osition by Sherman was agreed to, that
the committee take np the bill by para
graphs and either pass them for future ac
tion, or agree to them as they stood in the
bill as it passed the house. The proposi
tion was adopted with the understanding
that any paragraph, which was agreed to
might lie recalled for f nture action. Tbe
first thing the committee did was to vote
against free alcohol for the arts. It then
proceeded with the chemical list and made
a number of reductions in the tariff, none
of them significant or important, but all
adopted by the vote of the Republican
making the motion, aided by the solid
Voorheea States the Issue.
Most of tbe items gone over in tbe four
pages of the bill considered were passed
without action, which seems to indicate
that the senate committee had hit upon
tbe way bow not to do it, and take the
most time for it. During a dis
cussion of future meetings Sherman want
ed to meet and work ten hours a day until
the work was completed, but Carlisle and
Voorhees said it would be waste of time,
the place for discussion was In the sen-
ate. Said oorhees: "The Republican
party wants a tariff constructed on tbe
lines of protection; the Democrats want it
on the lines of revenue." The way to do
it was for tbe Republicans to go ahead
and complete their bill, and tbe Demo
crats would either draw up another bill or
not, as they deemed advisable.
Made a New Arrangement.
The result of all this talk was the adop
tion of a proposition turning the matter
over to a sub-committee on each side, the
Republican sub-committee to prepare
schedules and submit them to the Demo
cratic, and rice versa. Sherman and Vance
voted against this. Later the committee
decided to give bearings to flu porters
Tuesday night, and still later tbe Repub
licans got together and made considerable
progress on the chemical schedule. The
Democrats bave decided not to prepare
bill. They will submit a minority report
and content themselves with offering
amendments to the hill in the aeuate.

Washington City, May 30. Among the

A Lot of Money Appropriated for Fablla
Washixgtox Citt, May 3"). Stewart
seized an opportunity yesterday in the sen
ate to give Maj. Powell, of the geological
survey, a piece of his mind. He said the
major kept a big lobby at work to control
congress and said the bureau of geology
was a great lying-in hospital for lame
docks. And all this because Powell had
animadverted rather severely on an irriga
tion scheme proposed by Stewart. Teller
introduced a joint resolution declaring
that' the United States will never, never

three amendments had been adopted that
only the legal mind could find any differ

Us interpretation and construction of the
constitution on the subject of commerce
between the several states, and thereby to
relieve the state of Iowa from the couse
qnencesof her own misguided legislation."
