THE DEBATE ON FREE WOOL.
Tin-Flute and Senator Hill Koh I n ia
Wa.-iiisi.TcN, March IS. There was a
little diversion at the very outset of the
resumption in the house yesterday of the
debate on the free wool bill. Payne said
that though the tin plate business was un
doubtedly established at many points in
the country.it was difficult to convince
Democrats that any tin-plate at all was
made here. Bowers of California said
there was a tin-plate industry in California,
and Payne replied that he could find W)
Democrats to prove that it wnsu t there at
all, but in Cardiff, Wales. Ilowrrs didn't seem
to catch the drift of Payne' remarks, and with
the exclamation that lie didn't want to lie
called a liar, said he would place nn his desk a
hi pound block of Unmade iu California.
Quoted From Hill's Speeches.
rayne then proceeded and being plied with
economic questions br Harper, he (Payne! ask
ed the gentleman if he had heard from Sena
tor Hill yet. Loud laughter. He then pro
ceeded to quote from Hill's speech nt Birming
ham on the tariff, and said fa H alter that
evidently Hill did not .icrcc- with the gentle
man from Ohio or his party on this question,
more than he did on silver. The Democratic
party was afraid to go before the county with
a complete tariff hill, and brought in separate
measure as entering wedges to public fooling.
The McKinley bill was a tribute to the com
pleteness, and wisdom of the Fifty-first con
gress. The Democrats confessed their in
competency in not reiHirtius a fall tariff bill.
They wanted to tax the necessaries of life,
sugar, coffee, boots, shoes, etc.
lUinur Defends the 1'lan.
Kaynnr of Maryland, referring to Pavnes'
rriticism of the Democrats for attacking the
law piecemeal, said that the committee had
seen proper to select single items of absolute
necessity and importance to the consumer and
to send them into the senate with reduced du
ties and upon this plan so formulated there
was a prospect and u possibility of partial re
lief. Lower the duties up-m the implements of
husbandry and the nlciisil of the farm and
lctuse what position the representatives
from the great agricultural states of the west
will assume upo i t'i;S question. Take off the
duty on tin pint ..;id let us we whether the
penple wbo consume the canntxl frod products
f the ca.-.t hav- any inilucacc with the peblio
servants whom they have chosen to represent
A "Bevenne Only" Reformer.
In conclusion he said: I am for a tariff for
revenue., and not for a tariff for protection or
monopoly. Any other construction is a per
version and a falsehood, and will sooner or
later bring us to the threshold of a contest of
the constitution that will involve the very life
Df the republic It is today so distorted and
disfigured that those who brought it into life
would hardly recognise it as their misprint;.
'Wool the Basis of the Tariff.
Ellis of Kentucky favored the bill, and con
fined his argument to the question of free wool.
The woolen schedule was the basis of the en
tire tariff. To break through this schedule
would be to totter the entire structure. Free
raw material would give cheaper goods, both
to the manufacturer and consumer. Specific
nd compensatory duties were most obnoxious.
The present law put wool and worsted goods
tut of reach of the poor. Shoddy clothing,
manufactured from waste, scraps, and cast-off
rags, is the character of goods the McKinley
tariff law prcscnlied for the poor.
The Congressional Synopsis.
Washington-, March 18. A bill to make
Council Bluffs, la., a port of delivery was
passed yesterday by the senate. Another
bill was passed changing the designation
Dt "privates in the army to "enlisted men."
Pefler introduced a bill to experiment with
electricity as a farm motor. The rest of
the day was spent in executive session,
and Judge Woods, of Indiana, with the
otber nominees as circuit judges, except
Gilbert of Oregon, who was held up on a
point of courtesy, were confirmed.
The house spent the entire day discuss
ing the free wool bill.
THE BIG TALK ON SILVER.
A Proportion Considered to Extend. It
to a Week.
Washington, March 18 Informal con
ferences between individual represents),
tires of the silver and anti-silver wings of
the Democracy were held yesterday upon
ft suggestion that the time for the debate
of the Bland silver bill shall be extended
from three to five or six days. Bat in the
absence of any authority by the an ti -silver
men to apeak for their associates nothing
definite was accomplished. Whether or
not anything will be done If doubtful.
The discussion was started by Kaynor ot
Maryland who spoke to Bland, suggest
ing an extension of the time for debate iu
order that there might lie no apparent
ground for the charge that the bill was
rushed through the house at an undue
rate of speed.
Itland Wants a Pledge.
Bland took the suggestion under consid
eration and yesterday had a talk with
Williams of Massachusetts. It is under
stood that the silver bill leader and author
stated to Williams his willingness to con
sent to the extension of the term of debate
by the committee on rules, provided the
anti-silver men would bind themselves to
indulge in no filibustering. Williams,
in the absence of Tracey, who is in charge
of the Democratic opposition to the silver
bill, said he did not feel authorized to
enter into this obligation. He suggested
to Bland that if he (Bland) thought more
time should be allowed lor discussion
doubtless the committee on rules would
heed his appeal for an extension.
Harter and Bland Have a Talk.
But as the proposition did not originate
with Bland, and as he was not anxious fol
his own part that an extension should be
made, it is perfectly safe to say that be (
will not disturb the committee on rules .
about the matter. Later in theday Harter !
and Bland hnd a talk about the time to be '
given to the discussion. Harteris perfectly
willing that the anti-silver men shall agree
not to filibuster, being convinced that this
course on their part in treating such an
important measure would injure their case
before the people.
Nearly Keaeh an Agreement.
!! wanted,bowever,that on amendments
rop..M-d to the bill the roll should lie
called for the purpose of putting memler
on record, and to this Bland was fully
agreed. He authorized Harter to say to the
committee on rules that he (Bland), with
the understanding that there was to be no
dilatory tactics pursued by the opposition,
was willing to devote all of next week to
the silver bill. Harter, however, will, he
said, take no action until he has conferred
Ia Case of War with Britain.
Washington, March IS. Cutting of
California, from the committee on militia,
reported to tho house yesterday his bill to
reorganize the militia and increasing the
appropriation therefor f-200,000. In the re
port accompanying the bill he says Great

An Interstate Commerce Case.
Washington", March IS. Argument was
begun in the supreme court of the Cuiled
States yesterday in the cases of the inter
state commerce commission, appellant,
against the Baltimore and Ohio Railway
company. The appeal was taken from the
decision of the circuit court of the United
States for the southern district of Ohio
refusing the application of the commis
sion to restrain the railway company from
the further sale of tickets at reduced rates
to parties of ten or more. This sale, was
prohibited by the commission on the
ground that the reduced rate was in vio
lation of the iuterstate commerce law.
Trying to Execute the Law.
Washington, March IS. "It is very like
ly," said Attorney General Miilcr, talking
to a gentleman who had asked him if it
were true that the department of justice
was so hot after the Chicago beef combine
that the managers had found it necessary
to burn their books. "We are endeavoring
to execute the anti-trust law, and wherever
a concern is lound which offers a fair field
for investigation, that tine is pursued to
the best of our ability."
Klortrlrlly for Farm Work.
WASHINGTON, March 1. Senator Pefler
has introduced a bill to establish an elec
trical experiment station for the purpose
of investigating and determining whether
electricity can be profitably applied as a
motive power in the propulsion of farm
machinery and implements. Ten thou
sand dollars is appropriated.
Morrill Seems to be Getting On.
WASHINGTON, March 18. The condition
of Senator Morrill justifies the hope that
he will soon I convalescent. He has im
proved rapidly lately.

Strike on Its Hands.
Winnipeg, March 13. The Canadian
Pacific management, fiiidingevidcnce that
the conductors and brakeiuan of its west
em division were organizing a union, de

promptly paid off. Some delays to trains
were occasioned, but all of them, tip to
yesterday, had been kept moving.

The conductors and tirakemen on the Cana
dian Pacific railway finally went out on a strike
at 1 o'clock yesterday morning. The passen
ger trains are moving, but few freight trains
are in operation. The strike was begun against
the vigorous protest of a large majority ot tns
men themselves and in response to the com
mand of representatives of brotherhoods in
the United States, who have been here for the
past few days. There is liitle sympu hy hero
for the strikers in view of the wages that the
men appear to have been paid, according to
the statement published by the company. Dur
ing the busy months last year freight conduc
tors seem to have earned from $90 to $160 Ir
month each, and the two or three dulliwt
months of the year freight conductors earned

the only person she could marry, and this
he intended to do as soon as site secured
