WaSHp;oTox, Nov. 11. Interest now
centers around what effect the recent elec
tion will have on tariff legislation, al
though the utterances to Chairman Wil
son would indicate that the result would
have little weight in changing the policy
or party leaders. Indeed, Wilson asserts
that the passage of the measure now being
prepared by himself and his associates in
the committee will be the only thing need
ful to restore public confidence. This
opinion of Wilson is not, however, shared
by all the other prominent men in his
party. In fact there are indications that
the result of Tuesday's electionswill im-p.-l
several Democratic leaders of national
reputation to counsel the ways and means
majority to moderation, and to warmly
discourage the radical legislation that the
free-trade wing of the party has been so
The Tariff a Lccal Issue.
Since Tuesday what may be called the
protection wing of the party has taken
heart of courage, and will certuinly make
itself heard in council. It has been quite
generally believed that the bill to be re
ported by the ways and means committee
will enlarge the free list by removing the
duty on wool, lumber, iron ore, coal nod
salt. Already Democratic opposition to
this policy h.;s become so Apparent as to
forcibly recall General Hancock's aphor
ism tlmt tie tarift question is largely a
local iMic. Thus i be main opposition to
free wool comes from one locality, while
the objection to free lumber come from
another ami the opposition to free coal
from st !1 aunt her; and soon to the end of
A Product Thnt Is National.
Bat there are wine products that may
be called national and probably one is
beer. The United States Brewers' asso
ciation, through W. Miles, of New York,
its president, has protested to the commit
tee against any increase of the internal
revenue tax on beer. This means of rais
ing revenue has been recommended by
the Hon. Davtf A. We la, but President
Miles and the attorney of the Brewers'
association, L. W. Babercorn, maintain
that stsch a policy would have the immedi
ate effect of crushing the smaller brew
ers out nf existence and giving a monop
oly to a few large corporations. The rec
ommendation of Wells was that the pr t
ent tax an beer be doubled, but the brew
ers protest against any iucrease what
ever. A Cnairse to Be Mapped Out.
These conflicting theories and local de
mands have made a Democratic Ttinrns
on the tariff question something desired,
it seems by such men as Culberson and
Bland, and they have requested that one
be called. Whiting of Michigan says:
"There has been a desire expressed by a
number of Democratic congressmen for a
caucus tn discuss and approve the bill be
fore it is presented in December, but
whether this desire will become so general
as to necessitate a caucus I cannot say. It
is joy opinion that there should be no de
lay in presenting this bill and passing it
through congress, in order that the people
may have an early opportunity to judge of
its practical operation. '
Believes in Cleveland 'a Platform.
M The most important thing. I think, m
to get the bill before the house, and I also
think the result of the recent elections
should enjoin us to caution. While I do
not agree with President Cleveland in
everything, I do agree in the opinion
credited to him that the tariff should be of
that moderate yet firm and judicial char
acter that will commend ns to the people
without obliterating or hopelessly embar
rassing any existing industries. I do not
think the tree list shosld be greatly en
larged. Advises Mutual Co-operation.
"There is scarce a member of congress
who does not have some industry appeal
ing to him for protection, and if every one
of these gentlemen insist that his district
must be protected, and tariff reductions be
made at the expense of some other man's
constituents and on some other articles,
where will we be? This is a great mutual
enterprise we are engaged in now. and we
J must all be mutual, co-operative, and
, reasonable if the principles of the party
. are to be carried to success."

in Hawaii in January last and takes
strong ground in the opinion that Queen

pjsed had it not been for the landing of
'United States marines from the United

also that the provisional government has
been maintained solely by the fear of the
military power of the United fitasae. - He
cites mtscb evidence from Blount's report,
and from the reports of Minister Stevens
himself to sustain this view.
The government of Hawaii." he saya,
"surrendered its authority antler a threat
of war antil such time only aa the United
States should reinstate the conetitntioual

was created to exist until terms of anion

argues, be submit ted again.

Cleveland, O., Nov. lL A daring at
tempt was made to rob the Society far
Savings, nearly resulting in the murder Of
Colonel Myron T. Herrick, the tieasarer

of Colonel Herrick the robber was balked,
although the treasurer had a narrow
escape from death, a bullet fired by tha
robber passing through his coat and vest
and buryihg itself in the frame of an offica
door. Colonel Herrick, shortly beforo
noon, entered his office after oUn
Mrs. Herrick, who had called to sea hint,
out of the bank. A moment later a strin
ger entered the room and asked for a pri
vate interview. Colonel Herrick led him
into tbe trustee's room, the stranger clos
ing the door behind them. Tha man was
of medium height and build, with a sandy
mustache. He was rather poorly divnwed
and wore a slouched hat and was in ap
pearance not different from scores of men
who call upon Colonel Herrick daily.
Was Modest; Only Wanted SSO.S .
Colonel Herrick seated hiplf upon a.
corner of the table that stands in the mid
dle of the trustee's room. He was at tha
corner next the door. The stranger passed
him and stood at the farther end of tha
table. Without preliminary remarks the

give it to me. Now you can go into the
vault and give me $50,000. I'll go with
you and the clerks in the banking house

The stranger quickly drew a revolver
from his pocket and thrust tbe muzzle
against Colonel Herrick a head.
"If you don't do that," be continued.
Til blow you to . I have a charge of
dynamite in my other hand, and I'll blow

Colonel Herrick promptly struck tha
man in the face, knocking him down. Tha
robber sprang to his feet, shot at Colonel
Herrick and sprang out of ax open win
dow into the street.
CoL Herrick Tells Ike Story.
CoL Herrick, when seen after ha had re
covered from his excitement, said: " Tha
man requested a private interview, with
me and we walked into the inner affjea
and told me be wanted $50,600. Be said:
'You go with me to the vault and -get K.
You walk ahead, and if you turn from m
straight line or attempt to communicate
with anybody I will kill you.' At that he
pointed a pistol at my head." CoL Her
rick grasped the revolver which was aimed
at his head with one band and with tha
other he struck the fellow in tha face.
Then a desperate struggle followed, at tha
end of which the fellow fired at CoL Her
rick and made bis escape. The police Wen
notified at once, but they have been unable
to obtain any clue to the would-be robber.
CoL Herrick thinks he has seen the man
in the bank withia a week and is certain
he could identify him if he should see him
