Harmony failed to reign yesterday In the Senate Committee on Finance to an even loss degree than wa thought. The effect of tho nctlcn of Senators Sherman and Jforrlll, upon their colleagues, wai so surprising as to daze all of them tem porarily, except Sir. Aldrlch. He rallied suniclcnlly to Unit histamine and read the riot act to his venerable lenders. He declared that tho Cold Sherman and Iho venerable Morrill were doing a highly unwise and emi nently Improper thing In voting with tho Democrats 'and against their own G. O. P. 31r. Allison sat a silent and amazed auditor and spectator of all these wild doInts. There wcro the two old load ers, chiefs In the caucus and foremost In the fray, violating all the tradittons of leadership. There was tho young, but wary, Aldrlch proving himself n very Hotspur and charging full tilt against his leaders. What did It all mean? So far as tho company then present wns concerned, It meant that Mr. Sher man became very tired during tho last Concrcis of the bumptious aertlveneM of Messrs. Allison and Aldrlch lit Ignoring him In thu framing of a tarllf measure as a substitute for the Mills bill. Mr. Morrill shared this feeling, lie was tho rather of the war taillT and he objectod to being set aside for anybody. So the two old pirlla mentnry foxes set a snare for their ag gressive colleagues. And they tripped them up. Tho effect of the committee's action, which could only have been taken by thu help of two Ilopubllcam the com mittee standing 0 Kepubllenns to t Domccrals Is to open up every sched ule of tho Mclvinlcy bill to amend ment. Thu committee determined to Klvo heatings to all who waut them. Th or o will be many to be heard. One result will bu delay, and In delay there Is danger to certain able states men now riding upon the highest waves of popularity In the sea or lie publleanlsm. Mr. Allison admitted yesterday that this would be ono olfoct. Mr. Sherman said he hoped to be able to roport tho bill back to the Senate by July 1. It will probably be July 13. Mr. McKtnley admits delay rind dreads It. Yesterday morning he felt confident his bill would pass the Senate soon and with but few amendments, this morning he sail he failed to comprehend thu action of the Finance Committee, unless they lire to have private meetings among themselves and determine their course. That, he sahl. was the only practicable way. Whether It will be adopted or not remains to be seen. The real bottom fact In this matter is that Senator John Sherman Is exceed ingly tired of the "Xapoleon" business In politics. He thinks them quite as objectionable In polities as In tinance, and he proposes to himself effectually to clip the ambitious wings of one of thorn. The Iluckeye Napoleon was getting in the way of the grim old veteran ami he Intends to teach him a lesson. The relations among the leaders of the ltepubltcans of Ohio are strained. If there be a Napoleon among them his marshals are sulking In their teals. Uulterworth revolted openly against the Mclvinley bill.

He yesterday Intro duced a resolution calllne on the Sec retary of tho Treasury for tho evidence In the trial of James Campbell, the Pittsburg glass blower, for violation of the law concerning the Importation of labor under contract. Mr. ICerralso wants to know what the opinion of the Solicitor of the Treasury was, anyway, about the prosecution. It will be recollected that It was about Campbell that the llayne-llynum liel llgerencles arose. During the contro versy Mr. llynum, "who had It In for Campbell," as the boys say, not content with denouncing Campbell as a "liar and perjurer." referred to him as being under Indictment for violating the con tract laltor law.

Yesterday In the House, the River aad Harbor hill being under coasideratloa, Mr, Houk offered aa atueadMMt to au thorise John Cowdoa aad his associate J to construct the Lake Itorgae oulat under certain coaditloae.

Mr. Dunaell. who hails front the headwaters of the stream, also favored the outlet. So did Mr. Houuaa. These were apparently all the friends the plan had.

VITAL STATISTICS AND IXIlBBT KDKSS8 IKlHHHIrS. REPLY TO CAPTIOUS FAOLT-FHIDERS. The Snprintendnl of the Census Explains His Action. BE ACTED 1H ACCORDANCE WITH MW. The Superintendent Sajs No New Qhs. lions Have Been Asked His In structions to the Enumerators, As quite an Interest has of late been around concerning certain Inquiries to bo made In tho forthcoming census, It was deemed best to have an Interview with the Superintendent of tho Census for the purpose of obtaining authorita tive Information relative to these sub jects. 'With this end in view, a re porter of Tun CiitTic was directed to call upon Hon. ltobett P. Porter, Su perintendent of Census, with the fol lowing results: Referring to the complaints alleged lo be made concerning tho Inquiries with respect to obtaining statistics upon the mortgage Indebtedness upon farms nnd homes throughout the country, the Superintendent said that the bill pro viding for the collection of these sta tistics passed the llotno of Representa tives February 10, with TWKNTV-KIVE Nr.CtVTIvr. VOTUS, having previously passed the Senate with only four votes against It. Groat stress was, at the time, laid upon tho alleged demand by the fnrmors of tho country for this Investigation. In fact, It would seem from the amount of talk upon the subject at the lime, that this clans of our population was "sitting up nlphls" list information on this sub ject would not be gathered and tahu latid In the results of the forthcoming ccnnis. Notwithstanding, the Super intendent said, that lio had pointed out to the committees of Congress the dllll cultles and embarrassments, as he viewed It from no little experience ob Islnid fiom his conuntlon with the Tenth Ccnius, the clamor forlogUh lion nf the character enacted may be best Indued when It Is stated that n penalty was likewise onacted for re fusal to give Information with refer ence to pilvatc and corporate mortgage inucbiruness. As a further reason why the Superin tendent of the Census, as he said, doubled tho wisdom, not to Hpeak nf the propriety of the propose! legisla tion, was tlmt the work of the census, as a whole, had lieen determined upon and outlined, and tho schedules based thereon prepared. Ho did not think It wlte to broaden, by additional leglsla Hon. the work of the Eleventh Census, as laid down under the provision of tho act approved March 1. lHtiO. Tho Su pcilutcndcnt said that his opposition to this legislation was based more upon the latter lesson, than upon any other. At the same time the other reasons were not without a controlling Influence. THE "HI.OOD HOU.ISO" BTVTKMRNT. l!i-Krter Mr. Porter, what have you to say with respect especially to the strictures recently named concerning the Inquiries relating to vital statistics which, as one prominent Gubernatorial candidate put it. Is "enough to make a man's blood boll." Mr. Porter There Is not much to be said on this subject. Yesterday I Issued to the supervisors of the census through out the country an important order beating upon this subject. Here It Is: umHnT tmriKK.

You will sea from this that people have only simply to decline to answer the questions when it will rest with the law Deaartateat of the Government, upon the facts being reported to It, to see whether the mandate of the law governing the subject is enforceable. These uuesioas concerning acute or cbroaic dteeanmi were asked la the Teeth Census, oaly ia a much more blunt form than they are ia the forthcowiag one. In fact, they have been asked ia soaie form or other ia all censuses of this country, from the afth down to the runt. MtulUr questions are asked the caaiusen of the more civilised countries of Euroae, more especially Great Britain aad France. Ia the latter coualrv it has been developed by the statistics that out of a population of 30,000.000, S.uuu.OOv. and over, were unatted for self support by reasoa of physical disability of oae kind or another accute ot chronic. Thus, it will be teen, ia this i eats ace, for ex ample, thai oae eighteenth of this poeuialtoa were absolutely, as it were. so much "dead stock" oa hand, to use a hetaeiy uhrase. In this connect Ion, let me put what I consider unite a uertiaeut iaqwry. It is this, what general of aa army would undertake to go into battle without tirat knowing ike eJAt physical condition of Us enstre foite as veil as iu auaaerkal streogtU It seem i- to aae that such inforosatloo is just as esaeatiaJ ia affairs of government, for we are la a battle rtruggaag for industrial awta-earny bavtag ia view the greatest urospv-ri'y to the whole people. Aside from tlu- ciaid.-rntioas, scmnlists deaaaud tb? iaiocmatioa- Greater &aa all ca alderatioas, however, the lav evuu, 4 j it to be obtained- I have ao di. cutou lader asy oath of oJke I asa obliged to carry out both the letter aid sfarLi of I the law Those who seek the 1 heap I notoriety that coams from ilppaui -b jtctioos to must snylhlag tlut i , - poacd tsuat irst tusst their abtUiU" ui 1 the diitcUvu vi tvoealing that tv they object, not by cottanrlng or eritlefs lag the officer atipoinletl to carry out the provisions of a law. The object sought to be att!nl In gathering this Information is not, M sntire would lead the ordinary person to Mipprfe, as a sort of "Paul Pry" bud tits, or, as It were, an opening up of "famllv skeleton closets." On tite con trary, ft Is to wmlaln the number who arc disabled from their ordinary em ployment by reason of acute disease, such as malarial or typhoid fevers, or by reason of chronic lurg dlwsn or eonsumpllon, or tumors of varlom kiwis or chronic theumati'in nr the rwmltof Injuries, such as fractures, etc. Siteh Information has a value amounting al mot to parammint Importance. W klta Hip flgrtres that may Iw obtalnetl for any one group cannot, as a matter of conne, lie expected to be absnlutelyaecttrate, the deficiencies wtll lie in altottt the same proportion everywhere. Hence, the re sults In different group will lie fairly comparable with each other. T.KFT WITHOUT 1HCHKT!0N. Itcportcr In view of the criticisms lhat have been made through many promlnont journals and by many indi viduals, as aliened, might I ask you, Mr. Porter, If rctlecllon Indicates to you that any blunder has been made In putting forth or Insisting upon answers to these Inquiries? Mr. Porter As I have previously said, the law gnvcrntng the taking of the Klcvr nth Census leaves me abso lutely without any discretion on those points. If. any blunder there be, tho blamo must attach to the law and Its fraintra. Our late lamented General Grant nnco said, while occupying the Lxccutlvc chair, that "tho only way to repeal an obnoxious law was to en foicc It." Hut ancnl this Inquiry of yours, giving It as my personal opinion, with the sanction of my olllclal posi tion, I am at n loss to understand where blunder can be made In following the recommendations In this matter of the most eminent statisticians nf this country and of Lurope In placing these questions in thoschcdulos. And, 1 take it, that It was In view of these recommendations that provision was made In the law for this purpose. In my Judcmcnt, tho people of this country arc too Intelligent not to ap predate the value of Information to be uciivcd irom a comparison or answers given and the Importance of making such answers as accurate as possible. It must nlso be borne In mind that the answers given as regards each Individ ual wtll be treated as absolutely confi dential. Only the numbers will be published. IT HAS Jilt. I'OKTKK'S AlTllOVAt,. llcporter Then, Mr. Porter. In view of what you have said, It Is safe for mo to assume and to stale that this provision of the law with respect to thu ascertain ment of this Information in connection with the volume on vital statistics has your approval, the adverse criticism to the contrary notwithstanding? Mr. Porter It has, most unquali fiedly. Similar objections, and equally as strenuous, have been made lo like Inquires heretofore, not only In Uils country, but in othes, especially In Great llrltaln. So great was the objec tion to them lu the latter country that for a period of nearly fifty years (from lfOl, when the subject of taking the first census of Kneland was under de bate In the Home of Commons, to 1X11), this Information was not Included In the schedules of tho decennial censuses of that country. Little or no objec tions has been Interposed to them since the latter date. In Prance, which Is credited with being the greatest civilised country on the face of the globe, these Inquiries are taken as a matter of course. Then why should the United States, which, though In -wlnl of years, Is the most youthful of nations, but which In so many things stands in the front rank of all the coun tries, take an almost century backward step in this matter which cannot but be recognized as of vital Importance. Our motto should be, in faot as well as in name, onward, not backward. THE GOVERNOR OF OHIO QtveriMr hum E.

London, May 2S. The application made last fall lo the Swiss Inderal Council by M. Kocchtln, the assistant of M. Klflel In the erection of the KlfTcl Towor, for authority to construct a railway to the summit of the .Tung frau Mountain, in the Swiss Alps, has finally been acted upon. The Idea of constructing such a railway has long been a subject of spasmodic consider.) tton by the Swiss authorities, and there were several applicants for tho position of chief constructor nnd controller nf tho undettaklng liesldcs M.

Vcstctdoy was the day set for the commencement of wholesale evictions from the estate of Colonel Stuart at "Watorford, iu the southern part of Ire land. The tenants had dolled Stuart's agents, and even the Colonel himself, and the evicting party arrived on the ground yesterday morning In full ex pectation of having an exciting day be fore them, which would probsbfy be succeeded by several others opt illy lively.
