Washington, Oct. The prospect at
the close of the senate .session lust evening
looked favorable to the It-ginning of vot
ing on the amendments to t he repeal bill
by Friday. Faulkner had been canvas

a view of asking the senate to fix a time
when the vi could he taken, but con
cluded not to riake this request, for the
reason that be was of opinion after get
ting the views of various senators that the
speech-making would be expedited by
allowing the business to drift. The result
of Faulkner's inquiries was the discovery
that the speeches on the main question
would soon be exhausted. Senator Jones
concluded yesterday and Teller, Martin,
Allen and Stewart each desires to talk fro:u
an hour to an hour and a half.

So far as learned there will be uo other

The Republicans have abandoned ail
idea of introducing an amendment as a
party measure. Snerman had at one tim
thought it would lie wi-e policy 01 the
paii of the Republicans to offer a measure
for the settlement of the question, but he
says now that he d mbt the expediency of
interfering iu any way with tne passage of

that authority should be given for bonds,
but sees the dfhcultvof getting such a

No Doubt of an Adjournment.
, It is believed that if the voting on the

reached Saturday at the latest, and th

acted upon the bill adjournment until the

So general ;.s the desire on the part of
senators and members to get away that it
would la. next to impossible to hold a quo

it be attempted. It was at. one time be
lieved that there would be an effort to
pass the bill lor the exteusion of the Chi

COOMBS' IDEA OF A TARIFF BILL.
He Trescnts a I'lan Outlining His View of
the Way to Legislate.
Washington, Oct. 20. Coombs (Dem.)
of Brooklyn created a Blight, sensation in
the bouse by offering a resolution outlin
ing a plan for a tariff bill aud instructing
the ways and me ins committee to bring
in a bill in r.ccordance with its provis
ions. The bill according to the resolu
tion shall have four schedules: (A) com
posed of articles free of duty, including
all raw materials; (13) articles to pay duty
of 10 percent.; (C) articles of luxury.wiue,
spirits, tobacco, upon which a duty must
be charted suiucient at letist to protect
manufacturers wuo pay internal revenue
The fourth schedule (D) is for the pro
tection of labor and provides that all arti
cles not covered by the list shall go into
an unclassified schedule. After the
amount of revenues needed shull be ascer
tained aud the amount of revenue to be
obtained from the first four schedules
shall have beeu deducted from the amount
needed the remainder shall be raised by
mnnrt taxes ou unclassified articl
The principle to govern in the formation
of schedules "D"' and unclassified shall
have, regard for the protection of labor
cost, wherever a difference of labor cost
exists between this country and abroad.
When the reading of the resolution had
been completed Payne of New York asked
whether such a bill would be constitution

Admiral Stanton Salutes the Brazilian
Washington', Oct. 20. The navy depart
ment has learned by a telegram from Rear
Admiral Stanton, in command of the
United States naval forces at Rio de Ja
neiro, that this officer had saluted the flag
of Admiral Mello, commanding the Insur
gent fleet. The salute w.is unauthorized
by any instructions the admiral had re
ceived. It was an unfriendly act toward
a friendly power, and the secretary of the
navy after consulting with the president
and secretary of state, issued an order de
taching Admiral Stanton from command
cf his sqaadrou and turning it over to
Captain Picking, the next oflicer in rank,
This was in reply to a telegram of in
Secretary Herbert expressed his surprise
that an oflicer of Admiral Stanton's ex
perience and standing should commit such
a blunder, and his pro mi it action is taken
with the purpose of aunouncing-to the
world that the U lifted States government
has taken no steps to refuse recognition to
the legally constituted Brazilian govern
ment. Naval olliciids talked with on the
subject are puzzled over Admiral Stanton's
action, and are at a loss to account for so
serious a defection from duty on his part.
