Washixi;t, .Tan. X The Demo
cratic policy with reference to the tariff in
this congress has
leen decided. The
McKinley law will
le attacked by sep
arate bills aimed
at a few parts of
the measure, not
by a KeneTsl tariff
revision bill. This
conclus ion was
morning by the
Democrat ic mem
bers of the ways
and means cum-
W. M. FPR1X0EB. mittee after a con
ference lasting several hours. When a vote
was taken it resulted seven to three in fa
r of separate lill.
The Minority Not KirliinR.
The three di-seiitintf members of the
committee u;ive their adhesion to the
policy of the majority of their associates
on the committee and will act with
them, thus making the Democratic part of
the ways and means committee a unit on
the policy uhich it was decided to adopt.
Nothing was said about which particular
feature of the present law should be first
attacked, and this will be left to future
I.onc Discussion of the Subject.
After there had been a l'-mrthy discus
sion, in which the mciult rs of the commit
tee in former congresses expressed their
opinion in favor of a c neral tariiT revision
bill, and Springer anl his assof iates argued
that the proper methrHl of procedure was
by attackini; the tariff law in detail, Bryan
of Nebraska offered a resolution declaring
it to be the sense of the Democratic mem
bers of the committee that its policy with
reard to tariiT legislation in the Fifty-second
congress should be one of revision by
separate measures instead of a general re
vision of the whole system.
The Vote in Detail.
This motion was carried by a vole of 7
to 3. Those voting in favor of it were
Montgomery, Whiting. Shivelty, Coch
ran, Stevens. Bryan and Springer, the
new memhers of the committee. The.
negative vi,-,,-s were cast by McMillia,
Turner and WiNon, who were meml-rs of
the committee in previous congresses.
The general policy having leen deter
mined upon, nil the members present
agreed to abide by the conclusion reached.
'Wilson of West Virginia said later that
the majority of the committee would act
in harmony, and McMil'.in and Turner of
tieorgia subsequent iy concurred in this
SPRINGER MUCH GRATIFIED.
No Indication of Trouble and the Tarty

Chairman Springer was naturally some
what g-Htified that his policy of report
ing separate bills hail met the approval of
the Democratic majority. ''There is no
Indication of r.ny trouble at nil," said lie,
when interrogated as to whether the
Democratic members would vote as a unit
in the committee. 'Kverything is per
fectly satisfactory now, so far as I know.
We have carefully considered the situa

WAS!iiN..TO, .Tan. At the cabinet

be instruc:ed to -ay to Setior IVreira,

Such beir2 the case the Cnited States
will leave the matter of reparation to
the sufferer by tlie assault to Chili to ini
tiate accord, ng to her sense of justice and
right, and with a salute of the I'nited
States flag the incident will be considered
closed by tiiis government. Until Chili
makes some offer f reparation, of course
there will lx-nothing to arbitrate, as no
points of uMcrence exist. The offer inav
be so satisfactory tVit arbitration on that
score will not lie necessary.
The Story from .Santiago.
At the cal inet meeting the contents of a
dispatch frm Minister Kgan, received
Thursday, v ere made know n. It is said
that Kgan confirmed the story reported
from Santi.i ;othat memljers-of the Chilian
government luul stated that Senor Montt
the Chilian minister at Washington, had
misled his government by the advices lit
had dispatcled to them, which had the ef

to defeat David B. Hill's candidacy for the
presidency. Several calls for the meeting
had been circulated for signatures.
Some of these documents contained Mr.
Hill's name. At the meeting some speak

EMIGRATION OF CHINESE.
John liiisselt Young Says Chinese Itulers
Are Much Opposed to It.
W.s!iiM.To, Jan. yo. John Russell
Young, cx-tiiiiiister ti China, says there is
no room for trouble lietwevn the United
States and China over the Chinese restric
tion laws passed by congress, for"the rea
son that the Chinese government is as
much opposed to the emigration of Chinese
as it i possible fo any ot her country to l.
Therefore he cannot understand China's
rejection of Blair as minister because he
had spoken against Chinese immigration,
lamps Trade With China.
Mr. Young thinks that rather than
waste our energies in the poverty
stricken countries of South America
we should awake to the fact that we are
the nearest neighbor of the most populous,
the oldest and perhaps most richest
country in the world, and that in a gener
ous commercial polity lies the slondor and
lower of oar Pacific states. This would
furnish a diplomatic relation worthy of
our highest . genius. Mr. Young added
that he had tried to impress this idea upon
lioth Bayard and Blaine in times past, but
owing to various domestic juilitical con
siderations it hail been ignored.
