A Few Unimportant Changes Made The
r resident Replies to Salisbury's Note
Accepting His I'rnposnls, and "the Re
public Is Peace" Tariff Debate in the
Hoiihc Stewart Tropoites to Bring; the
Silver Question t'p ill the Senate An
Estimate of the Vote There Official
Washington, March 30. The treaty or
convention providing for arbitration in
the settlement of the differences between
Great Britain and the United States over
the jurisdiction of Behring sea was rati
fied by the senate yesterday afternoon by
a unanimous vote. The secret session
which resulted in the ratification was at
tended by seventy-two senators. There
was some general discussion concerning
the perfection of the treaty and Sherman
announced that the propositions made by
some senators nt previous sessions that the
arbitration proceedings should tie con
ducted in English had met with a favora-
le response from Lord Salisbury. The
treaty did not stipulate the language in
which the proceedings shall be conducted.
:fter Sherman made this statement the
treaty was amended so that English
should le the language used in the con
duct of the proceedings.
Gave the Arbiters More Time.
There was also some discussion over
article 11 of the treaty, which provides
that "the decision of the tribunal shall, if
possible, lie made within three months
from the close of the argument on both
sides." Several senators thought t lie "
ime allowed the arbitrators for decision
should be longer, and as there was no ob
jection to thisihe time was extended to
four months. After a discussion over
these points and some others of minor im
portance the treaty was ralifil without
further change (by an aye and nay vote)
and resolutions informing the president of
its ratification and removing the injunc
tion of secrecy from the vote were adopted.
Senators Who Didn't Vote.
The vote was unanimous as to the sena
tors present. Those absent were: Aldrich,
Hlodgett, Urice, Casey, Chilton, Colquitt,
Davis, Faulkner, Harris, Hill, Irby, Jones
of Arkansas, Jones of Nevada, Manderson,
Morrill, Stanford total, lti.
Amendment to the Treaty.
Yesterday Sir Julian Pauncefote sent to
the president a draft of the amendment
which Lord Salisbury would like to have
made to the arbitration treaty in order to
make it perfectly acceptable to his govern
ment. It is in effect the same as proposed
in Salisbury's last dispatch, providing that,
should the arbitrators decide the Canadian
poachers hud a right to the seal catch
which some of them are now making they
may proceed for damages against this gov
ernment on account of having been kept
out of their work during the present season
by virtue of a renewal of the modus Vi
vendi. The president is said to be willing
to have the amendment adopted.
Harrison s Reply to Salisbury.
President Harrison was in a very happy
mood at the meeting of the cabinet yester
diiv. He prepared a letter in reply to the
last communication of the British premier
which he read to the cabinet and which
met with unanimous approval. Blaine
was present at the meeting and expressed
his admiration for the letter. It
was transmitted to Sir Julian
Pauncefote after the cabinet meet
ing and by him promptly put on
the wires for the information of Lord Salis
bury. The president expressed his will
ingness to accept an agreement for an ad
justment of damages, according as the ar
bitrators may decide for or against the
United States. He suggests to Lord Salis
bury, however, that two closed seasons
will make the price of sealskins very high
during the next winter, and that this may
be an element in determining the measure
of damages on one tide or the other.
TARIFF HAS THE FLOOR AGAIN.
for revenue witn incidental protection.
This is and ever has been the doctrine of
the Democratic party. Any other system
would not promote the general welfare,
but would only and fatally wound and in
jure the country. The duty on wool had
the tctuleucy to raise the price of wool to
t he in Ja who produced it.
nolllver Calls it Childish.
Dolliver of Iowa, in opposing the bill,
saul that the Mills bill only reduced the
tariff from 47 to 42 per cent. If the argu
ment by which cotton ties and binding
tfl ine are put on the free list is not abso
lutely ..worthless then the Democratic
party --howed most astounding treachery to
the public welfare. The argument had
been refuted many times in this house and
the fact that, the house being almost
unanimously Democratic, sent here, as
they claim, as a protest against the Me
Kinley act, with their leading candidate J
for the presidential nomination advising
Its repeal, they now attack the tariff law
in a childish way is an example of a dema
(iatlinir Compared to "Pnpgnns."
The measures proposed by Democrats,
even if enacted, would make no apprecia
ble impression upon the long list of items
in the McKinley bill. It was not probable
that the United States senate, which stood
until October, 1KSS, against the Gatling
guns of that year would now be unable to
stand against the popgun programme of
1!0. Applause. The young statesman
from Kansas I Bryan said that the effect of
the passage of the binding twine bill was to
save $700,000 to the agricultural interests
ff the country. This could not lie true.
The Democratic system of competition, a
system that juggled with rates, with the
kill of magic itself, reduced the tariff
'only 5 per cent.
Says If Amazing anil Ludicrous.
By their own showing the Democratic
party compromised with cannibals, made
peace with thieves, compounded the felony
of burglars, accepted the apology of pick
pockets and acquiesced in the new slavery
that put its fetters upon tn,(KK),OO0 of peo
pleall for a paltry concession of 5 per
cent. Applause. But amazing as was
the process by which the Democratic hun
ger for free trade was satisfied in lssS, the
present effort to silence the cravings of the
same hunger with three broken (loses of
their favorite medicine is still more
amazing anil more obviously ludicrous.
If the Democratic party exercised in
politics the same instincts which distin
guished them in private life they would
now be on their feet apologizing for what
the- said last year. He felicitated them
upon the progress they had made.
WHERE DID YOU GET THAT SPEECH!
Curious Coincidence in the House Oblt-
Washington, March 30. There is blood
on the face of the moon which shines on
Representatives Tim Campbell and Bel
den, from New York. It all comes from
Campbell's lack of a speechmaker's abil
ity. It was brought to light yesterday
morning when the Congresssionsl liecord,
showing the speeches of the two men at
the Spinola obsequies last Saturday, was
read. Beldeu made bis speech, but Camp
bell had contented himself with having
his printed in The Record. A comparison
shows them to he identical in thought
and in many parts are word for word.
The question was, who was the filcher?
Campbell Cau't Make n Speech.
Belden says that he wrote his own
speech, as he delivered it, which is doubt
less true. Campbell says: "I am not a
speechmaker, and everybody knows it. I
got fooled on that speech, and that is all
there is to the business," and this is also
doubtless correct. Belden wrote his speech
and according to reports Felix McCloskey
went to Belden and secured his speech to
show to Widow Spinola for correction.
Whetlvr he copied it, or having read it re
tained unconsciously certain passages iu
his memory is not known. Suffice it to
say the report has it. that he gave Tim a
speech almost a duplicate of Belden's.
CUPID THE POTENT.
Harter Speaks for rrec Wool Dolliver
Attacks the lemocracy.
Washington, March 30. The house yes
terday "returned to its mutton," and tack
led the tariff question once more. Harter
made the principal Democratic speech, de
claring himself for direct taxation and free
trade as far as it could lie made practica
ble tariff for revenue only. He pointed a
charge against t he duty on steel, rails by
pointing to the high price of that product,
when Dal.ell of Pennsylvania inquired
whether it was not a fact that during a
large portion of last year steel rails were
sold in New York at a lower price than in
Ixjndon. Harter replied that he believed
the gentleman was mistaken, but if not,
this only proved that there was no neces
sity for a protective tariff on steel rails,
and it was robliery to permit a high tax to
remain upon steel rails.
Tariff Intrenches Hlph Prices, f
Dalzell asked who was robbed by this
tax. Harter said that temporarily, when
competition had a home outlet, prices
might go down under a fair system of
tariff, but when combinations were
formed prices were put up sky high to the
American consumer; and were intrenched
behind the Republican tariff.
McCreary of Kentucky favored the free
wool bill. The tariff question was increas
ing in importance every year. He at
tacked the McKinley bill and would re
peal every line of it if he could, but he
yielded to the judgment of his colleagues,
who believed it was better to move slowly
and repeal certain portions of it first, with
out attacking it all at once.
The Democratic Idea Defined.
Deforest of Connecticut favored the bill,
and spoke enthusiastically of the tariff
policy adopted by the Democratic party,
Raines of New York interrupted him and
inquired what the Democratic party meant
when it declared in lbbo in lavor OI ag
gressive free trade throughout the world.
Deforest said that he was not aware that
the Democratic party had so declared.
That party insisted that these necessary
duties Bhould be laid on at such rates
and with such equity as shall in the high-
eat possible degree incidentally protect
American industry and promote tne gen
eral welfare. Tigj. believed in, a tariff
FREE COINAGE IN THE SENATE.
An K.stimntc That Heats Stewart's Meas
ure by a Tie Vote.
WASHINGTON, March 30. Interest, in the
silver question was transferred from the
house to the senate yesterday by the an
nnunteuii'iil by Stewart that he would call
up his free coinage bill on Monday next
'immediately after the morning business.
The bill is now on the calendar and may
lie taken up at any time. But it has an
adverse report of the finance committee
Rjainst it and in order to get the bill lie
fore the senate for extended discussion a
majority vote will lie necessary, and there
the test will come.
They Know How Hill IV ill Vote.
A canvass of the senate made by Vest
and confirmed by Carlisle shows that ten
Democratic senators will vote against the
bill. They are Hill of New York, Mcpher
son atid Blodgett of New Jersey, Gibson
and White of Louisiana, Carlisle of Ken
tucky, Palmer of Illinois, Vilas of Wiscon
sin, and Butler of South Carolina. Gor
man is placed ou the doubtful list, but
from the fact that he voted for free coin
age in ISM it is presumed that he will do
so again. Gormau's colleague in the last
congress, Wilson, voted against free coin'
age, but his successor, Gibson, is placed in
the free silver rank in the estimate made.
Morton Will Decide the Vote.
According to this estimate thirty-four
Republicans and the ten Democrats named
will vote against tree silver. I here are
eighty-eight members of the senate, and
if the estimate is correct the opposing vote
will be even, thus throwing the deciding
vote on Vice President Morton, who will
Tote against free silver, and thus kill the
bilL But if Gorman should have changed
his views either as to the soundness of the
free silver doctrine or as to the policy of
the Democracy relative thereto he would
decide the matter,
i Silver Men In the House at Work.
:The free coinage men in the house who
decided Monday to give up the fight after
Speaker Crisp's decision that he would not
rote in the committee on rules to bring in
a cloture rule unless requested to do bo by
majority of his party, changed their
minds yesterday and began circulating a
petition to the committee on rules asking
for the cloture and have secured ao names.
Bland has taken no part in the circulation
of the petition. He said last night that he
had signed the petition, and from what he
had heard of the number of signatures ob
tained be thought the outlook for the hill
very favorable. I he number or names

An Illinois Girl to Become a Jadalst in
Order to Marry an Israelite A Com
mnnlcant of the Episcopal Church, Sh
Will Deny Her Savior Rather Than
Stifle Her Love Rabbi Moses' Views ol
rroselytism and Advice to the Young
CHICAGO, March 30. In a few weeks a
new membr will be taken in by the Kehi
lath Anshe Maariv, which means "Con
gregation of Men of the West," the old
est Jewish congregation this side of New
York. The new member, who will be re
ceived in the synagogue at the corner ol
Indiana avenue and Thirty-third street,
is the daughter of a well-known man iu
Jacksonville, Ills. Her name is Anna L.
liregory, and until a short time ago she
was a devout Episcopalian. She becomes
a Jewess, so far as an American girl can
lx-come a Jewess by joining a congrega
tion, because she is going to marry Meier
E. Weil, who is a young man of Jackson
ville. She Will Have to Deny the Savior.
She will renounce her family traditions
and the religion of her people in order to
be a better companion through life.for her
husband who is to be, ' One of the ques
tions she will lie asked is: "Do you believe
that Jesus Christ died to save mankind?"
and the reply must be "no," or Anna will
have to give up Meier. This Mr. Weil
learned in an interview with Rabbi Moses.
She will also have to overcome the tradi
tional feeling of Christians against JewS
because, the rabbi said, otherwise she
could not live in harmony with her hus
bund. Advice to the Young Man.
Rabbi Moses further told Mr. Weil:
"You should send your sweetheart to Chi
cago, where she should live with respect
able Jewish people and learn whether she
likes their manner of thought and their
religion. Hitherto indifference
on your part, while not desirable, was
pardonable. Henceforth it is not pardon
able, for if you are not as ardent in your
old faith as your sweetheart will become
in her new fait h you will not live alto
The Young Woman Doesn't Flinch.
The young man went awav and yester
day a dispatch came from Jacksonville to
say that Miss Anna L. Gregory had re
nounced her Christian faith, left the Epis
copal church, in which she had been a
communicant, and created a social sensa
tion by going to ChKago to learn Judaism
all because of her love for Meier Weil.
Mr. Weil is a prominent and well con
nected merchant of the town and Miss
Gregory is of a family that belongs to fine
society in Jacksonville.
Not Favorable to Frosrly tisui.
Rabbi Moses said last night: "I am not
much in favor of making proselytes indis
criminately. Proselytism is not in my line.
If people like America it is not necessary
that they should come here. If they profit
by our example and work at home on our
lines we are as well satisfied. Jnst so in
our church. It would nut lie best that all
who are impressed with our doc
trines should join our congregations.
They Were Rent on Matrimony.
'In the case of Mr. Weil he and Miss
Gregory seemed lient on their puriiose. I
could not marry them while she was a
Christian. I did such a thing once when I
was a young man and ambitious, but it is
against my principles now. So I agreed to
take Miss Gregory into fellowship."
Advised Them to Marry.
When AVeil went to .the rabbi and told
his story the rabbi said: "Marry her any
how; you can go to any justice of the
peace and he will marry you in a twink
ling; or you can go to liabU Hirsch at
Sinai temple. He has married Jewish
young men to Christian youug women be
fore now." But Weil did not believe in
that sort of thing and said that Miss
Gregory wished to become of the same
faith as her sweetheart.
Prohibition in Iowa.
Dies Moines, la., March 30. The house
Republicans, as predicted, will not recon
sider the vote by which the Gatch bill
failed to pass. Yesterday afternoon the
committee appointed by the Republican
house caucus Monday evening made public
an address to the anti prohibition Re
publicans in answer to the resolutions
adopted by their convention. The address
says that it is impracticable to act on the
Cratch bill agaiu. and that the Republicans
in the house could not have done other
wise than act as they did under the plat
form ol their party last election.
Locked the Children in the House.
Colvmbcs, Ind., March 30. Near Nash
ville, twenty miles from here, Monday aft
ternoon, Charles Swearing was working
on his farm when his wife locked their lit
tle boy and girl, aged 4 and 5 years, in the

tie later the house took fire from some un
known cause, and before aid arrived was
destroyed with all its contents. The two
