A prominent Western Republican, who Is hero loohlng nfter some Import ant measures now In tho Senate, was Etnndlng In tho lobby of Wtltard'a last evening discussing tho political situa tion In tho West "Tho Republican party," said lie, "will receive n great set-back this fall, nnd It will bo duo to tho McKinlcy bill nnd tho unsatisfactory appointments made by Harrison. Tho handwriting Is on tho wall, and this timo It will bo tho farmer who will translate the truo meaning of tho Inscription." "In Iowa, Minnesota and California," ho continued, "tho chango of senti ment Is growing, nnd tho people who havo always voted tho Republican ticket because of tho tariff, will be found with Democratic ballots in their Lands. Tho Senate, you will noto, has lowered the duties on at least 200 articles, and I think tho Finance Com mittee is moro In harmony with tho mass of Wcstorn voters than McKin lcy 's Woys and Moans Committee.

"A'llsou will be a very prominent cardldato for the Presidency In '1)4. nnd Senator Stanford also has his eye on the White House. Hut I think the California Senator's friends lwd baiter persuade him to step aside. In my oninlon the Senator has n blir enough fight on his hands already, ills frlumli in this rlly ore showing signs of uneasi ness. It has been hinted for the past month or two that nil the facts regard ing the methods adopted for the elec tion of Stanford to tho Senate In 1831 nro about to bo mado public. It Is known by those on the Inside that all the details of that affair are In the pos session of parties now living, nlthoujr.li many of the actors In the drama are dead, and affidavits of some of the mem bers of the Legislature, who are alleged to havo been paid to vote for Stanford for Senator, are still lu existence, giv ing names and amounts paid for such votes. In tho light of tho now avowed In tention of Stanford's friends to Insist upon his return to the Senate In '00, It is not a matter of wonder that his ad herents are anxiously questioning as to whether or not the earthquake will come. And the public, more particularly in California, will continue to query whether or not, In view of the possi ble expose, Stanford will allow his Dame to bo used. "Yes." concluded tbespeaker, "there will be lively times In California poli tics this fall." A NEW SILVER HILL. THE SENATE YIVMM TO HARBISON ' KMTIIATIC OHDBK.

They repeatedly referred to the fact that they wanted no anch methods In the Senate; that theirs was a deliberative body, and that It was well It was, for the House did not In any degree deserve that title. Otheis, again, opposed Mr. Iteed's tac tics on the ground that a sudden polit ical upheaval might throw them out of power and place the control of the Senate In the hands of the Democrats, who could thus treat them to a dose of their own medicine. "WOOL CONSUMERS PROTEST. WOOI.BW MAKUFACTOnKrtS Arr.vt. TO TUB dKXATR FOlt rilBK WOOL. Tho Wool Consumers' Association of I5o ton has sent to the Senate Finance Committee n memorial asking for a great reduction or the total abolition of tho duty on wool. The memorial stys: The system of excluding wool by more or less prohibitory duties, Involving still higher duties on woolens and worsteds, has been tried at cre&t cost to the consumer, with destructive restriction to the wool insnufscturer, and without any compensa ting advantages to tho wool grower. Un der this system the wool grower has utterly failed to supply tho raw wool In adequate qualities or quantities, the high cost of for eign wools has forced the manufacturers to icsort to shoddy, hair and cotton to make so-called woolens of, and the Importation of goods mado by foreign manufacturers, who havo the overwhelming advantage of free selection ot 'aw material, has been enormous. A frco selection from many varieties ot wool Is essential lor the manufacture ot tbo cloths required by the trnde and the ex clusion of foreign wool so Interferes with the necessary supply of raw material as to reduce rather than Increase the quantity of Ameri can wool used. The natural advantages ot Australia nod South America, for Instance, In the production of wool nro so great as to practically put wool tu tbo class ot things which cannot bo produced In this country under such conditions as to justify any duty for protective purposes. Ihe Interest of the consumers In this ease rliould txj controlling In putting wool on the free list, even more than In the case of te. or coflee or tropical frufts, or any othor article that cannot he produ:ed In the L'nlttil States. Decides this, the woolen manufacture cannot be pueceMtully de veloped without the free selection of raw material, and the prosperity awl activity of the home manufacture of woolens Is the first and essential element In Increasing the ue ot and demand for American wool. The high duties on wool hamper the manu facturer and drive blm to tlie use not so much of American wcol as of shoddy and cotton, and Increase Ihe cost ot all woolen and worsted cloths, and tnerebr illnimiii consumption. Our laws practically forbid the Ameri can to compete with the foreigner la the purchase of certain otMntlal descriptions ot wcol. Thus the heavy duties Increase Ihe cost ot clothing, and help the forelguer to imhI to this country vast quantities ot woolen goods that, with frea wool and moderate duties on the goods, might be manufactured at home. The proposed advance In tlte duties on wools of the first and second classea directly affects two of the leadline kind ot textiles, or woolens and worsteds for both men's and woman's wear, l'lne comWng or de laine wools are produced to a limited ex tent In the Vnttcd States, chiefly lu Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan. The ittlclly flue quslitlc are grown In tint imall nusutltv. One Mtal!Uhmutlu New England ha at times consumed wore ot the finest grade than the whole quantity produced lu the United SUte. A large Iiroportlon ot all the Hue combing wool iss teen and must be Imported. The full supply I not grown here, and U not likely to to under any eteni, a the laud ot the u love-named States are worth wore for other products. Hy reasou of this scarcity of fin or iimrluo-bred combing wool, a large quan tity of worsted fabrics kiuillar to our own has bti Imported. Most of these goods are not better in quality than the domestic product, out the lack uf raw material has eowttelled an Importation which would have hn anticipated and supplied hy our own production bad the wool beu af forded as cheaply as the foreign manu facturer oUslued it The larger eard leg or woolen luterests, produelug fabrics generally felted, eousuiue the wools grown In the States both east and west of Ihe Mississippi, in Texu ami Cali fornia. Nearly but not quite enough of medium and ttae wool Is grown In the United States to supply this demand. There Is a gradually iuerealng deficiency in the nneat grades. Our eonteotlon Is that If the wools now Imported In worsted fabrics, above stated, could be Obtained, bj our manufacturer free of duty, they would dUplece the unpolled wurted ana afford to inuiU wore employment for our oh u labor. As all ihe wool grown in the world I now wai.ud, the American grower eouUl hardly be injured by the rcadjuttiueut of Ykluee. If. at the worst, U product khonkl feu slightly In wke, he would be eomnen ated soon by the larger aud wore certain dauu d from the sthmuUtrd aud increased uaufacture. The demand fur mut ton U rapid! increasing, and H U afforded in better quality by sheep wbkh piodet-e long wool than by ike bri .! producing short sue wool. The half bred mutton aheufi's wool, in the warp, work admirably with the rejected worsted nbte and the Montevideo ieeees in the nil- big. Thns the mutton Bucks would be stimulated through the importation of free raw material The American consumer of woolen sad worsteds wouhl get better lab ile at prtees generally lower.

Two Men Arrested for Depriving n l'nutmmter of Ilia Fee. Nkw Yohk, July 10. A special from Kansas City to tho H'orW soya John Love and Thomas Duckworth of Pecu liar, JIo.,hsve been arrested, charged with conspiracy to doprlvc tho post master at the place of the receipts nnd emoluments of his office, Interfering with the discharge of his duties and setting up unauthorized receptacles for United States mall.

Ilred two shots at Collins, one ot the bullets pesslng through his heart and causing instant death. Stevens claims that Collins fired the first shot, but no pistol was found on cither cowboy when searched. The cowboys and cattlemen of the surround ing country are much excited over the killing, ami threats of lynching are heard on all sides. STARVING FISHERMEN. GREAT DISTRESS ALONG THE COAST OF NEWFOUNDLAND. A Itellct llsat Not Allowed to I.aml ISeruuiH the Government Unit 1'alleil to l'rovltle l'roteutlon, Halifax, N. S.. June 10. The steamer Harlow, which was ordered at Hay St. George, N. K., not ta land her cargo because the people would not pay duties, the excuse being absence of government protection, has arrived back here. Captain Faiitubar reports that he was notined that If he disregarded the notice and landed any cargo the vessel would be seized. There was no excitement, but the people were very determined. The Harlow continued her voyage up the Newfoundland coast. At Flower's Cove the people were found in an almost starving condition. The Hailow was the nrt vessel to ar rive there this season, and her appear ance was hailed v, 1th joy. At the urgent request of the local relief committee the Harlow landed a portion of her pro visions for distribution among the starving people. From Flower Cove the Harlow pro eeedul for Bonne Kparance, Labrador, much difficulty being experienced in reaching there owning- te large tteld of ke. On calling at Hay St. Geo on ihe return voyage it was found that the tesidenUi and the island government had cowe to an understanding, by which the former agreed to continue to puy customs duties on the promise of the authorities to consider their griev ances. Consequently the Harlow was permitted to land her cargo. The lob itr nhery in all point of the French shore is reported to he much behind last year. Captain Farquher brought a letter signed by Hev.

C, MONDAY EVENING, JUNE GUT AND DRIED. THE NATIONAL ELECTIONS HILL SCHEME NOW 1UPE. MR. REED'S PROGRAMME OUTLINED. Hi is Carrying Things With a Vary High Hand. BLAINE'S OPPOSITION WILL NOT COUNT. If thfl RepuWiean's Fail In One Way They Will Rwsrt to Another. Opposition in tho Senato. The New York HerW today pub lishes tho following dispatch from Its Washington correspondent: Sugges tively enough, tho man selected to put tho finishing touches to the National Klectlons bill was John I. Davenport of Now York. Ho spent nil of yester day with Mceers. Lodge and Howell, giving thorn the benefit of his experi ence as an election boss and doubtless giving to tho bill that form and sub stance which will tho moro strongly recommend It to the Speaker's favor. It Is n heroic romedy that Mr. Heed Is seeking to apply, and If Davenport has not succeeded In framing n moasuro which wlll'cnablo Mr. Iteed's party to rcgulalo and certify Its own returns, It will bo strnngo Indeed. The bill, It Is understood, will ue pre sented to tho Hcpubllcan caucus of tho House to bo held to morrow night. Mr. Heed will bo there to explain It nod nd vecato it, and Its acceptance by the caucus Is certain to follow, tho Speak er's will bolng now tho will of his party In the House. Nobody has as yet appeared seriously to question It. "Mr. llulterworth pro tests occasionally against some extreme puceedlng, and Mr. Burrows Is now and then in doubt as to the wisdom of tho Speaker's course, hut In every In stance the Speaker has triumphed In the cud. And so his confidence grows with each new success. He plants himself now wherever he wishes to stand, and calls his party around him with the air of a feudal lotd. TO lift TAKKN L'l" THIS WK8K. The House will probably be called upon to proceed at once with the tncHStite. It Is expected that tho Com mittee on Utiles will bring In a reiolu tlcn on Wednesday providing for lm inuilate discussion and flxlne an early day for taking the vote. How much time will be allowed Is, of course, a question. It is likely, however, that Sstuidav will witness Ihe end. That the bill will pass admits ot no queMton. There are ItepubllcuDS In the House from the Northwest and some from the extreme West who doubt the Rilvltabillty ot the proposed step; but thelr's Is a passive opposition which counts for nothing as against the efforts of the Itcpublicans from the lUst and South who are clamoring for legislation designed hi Increase the party's repre sentation from the South. The Southern Republican members are solidly for the bill, ami their atti tude is carrying the proposition with certain members from other parts of the country who otherwise would hesitate about Its adoption. Since the design Is purely one of re habilitating the party in the South, the views of the parly's representatives from that section are pressed, ot course, by Mr. Heed, as possessing the greatest weight in the determlnatloa ot the quetlon. What la actually the fact, namely, that these men are working only In the interests of their own per sonal fortunes, seems not to be con sidered here at all. Their hope Is to Insure, by Invoking in some way the Federal power In their behalf, their own return to Congress, As to what effect the law may have elsewhere and on otheis does not enter for a moment Into their calculations. J1LA1S.ES oriXIO-S SOT CO-SlDEB,EI. There has len some specul ttion as to whet effict Mr. HUlne's opposition to this unasure may have. The beet optn leu here now is that it will have no iSectatall. Mr. Blaine's views are not at-eebted end cannot be received as reo- rexenling the Administration's attitude in the prewUes. The President openly favors the bill, as does Attorney-General filler, who, in this matter, of alt the members of the Cabinet, stands nearest to the I'resideet They are actively up norttng Kted, while fir Blaine, forced by bis position to remain in the hack ground, must coutent himself with a mere expression of opinion. Nothing Is plainer, therefore, than that whatever induenee the Adiatnts irsdon may have with Congress, will be eserted not only to tecum the ps teg of the Rational Elections mil, but to spread abroad the interpretado of it that it means a renewal of the strongest means to retake the South in the inter eat of the rtfpwMtfim party. It was the opinion at one date that so ohjeettonnble a measure could not be nut through the Senate with the rules as they now eiUt, the nrotecttoa of the rights of the minority affording so great an opportunity fur debate and delay No hose of defeating the hill these need be entertained. The Senate's rules will not he changed unless there is partisan call for such a thing, hut, is thai event, the change will follow at twoaaptly as did the wdicui change is the rule of the House when Mr. Bed discovered, eariv in the session, that unless change was effected the party Wgil dve progiajnsae could not be carried out. ita ftrnatii Committee on Huhrs con tains three KepubUcans, whoaeparthwu' ship is as lobust as the "ffai"B calls i They are Nehost W- 41drkb. ioh feMkeruun and oh , laglU.

Said a frlewl of Howell to a friend of Iotlge a day or two ago: "It wotild give the bill better stand ing In the South ami West If Howell introduceiLit. He's a sxjuml lawyer, and, besides, his work as chairman of the Klectlons Committee shows how he stands on the question of party elec tions. Lodge, on the other hand, Is only an essayist, a dilettante, a doc trinaire, lie lias no standing as a ptsctfcal politician." "Don't you worry," replied lodge's champion; "you'll find that our literary ft tend from Massachusetts has a good dtal of the everv day demagogue In his composition and Is disposed to go as far as the next man to reap party ad vantage." TMR 9KKATR MATHER t.fKRWARM The Federal Klectlon bill, upon which the House Hepubllcan caucus will no doubt agree, says a Washington dis patch In to day's New York HeraU, Is to be a composite measure in'ended to enlarge the powers of the supervisors and prevent gerrymandering In the sev eral States. The statement Is elsewhere nisdr1 In these dispatches that some ot the Hcpubllcan leaders In the Senate were willing to pigeonhole the bill when It reached that hotly If the Demo crats would vote with them for the Silver bill. Aside from the fact that such a proposition from tho Hepubllcan Senators must prove bitterly disap pointing lo Speaker Heed and the more radical members of his party In the House. It demonstrates also that the Senate Is rather lukewarm on tho sub ject, nnd If left lo Itself would not bur den Its calendar with legislation of this character. Again the possibility of n. long, wearisome session, lasting until October, nnd even later, Is not pleasing to n largo number of the Hepubllcans whoso rc-clccltons are pending and who would like to return home when the legitimate work of Comrress shall have ended, as It ought, within the noxt two months. It Is well understood that the Senate Democrats will avail themselves of every parliamentary device to prevent tho possneo of n ledcral Election bill. There Is no rulo by which debate may bo cut off In that IkkIv. and the Southern men say they will talk until alter me autumn elections, If necessary, to pre vent consideration of the measure. With a knowledge of these facts before them, the Senate Itcpublicans are likely lo piocced vUih great deliberation in the mattrr. Senator 1'rye no doubt voiced the sentiment of his party when he said, a few days ago: "If we take up the bill c must expect to sit here until the 4th of Msrch next, If necessary. We shall not In nil probability take It up unless wo decide tu do this." IIAHIIISOX WARNS qt'AV. The l'res'dent, It Is ssld, I opposed to both the Lodge Klectlon bill and the Unwell Klectlon bill, and that he has announced this opinion to no less a per soijsbo than Senator Quay, says a dis patch ftom this city In to day s Phila delphia Jttcord. He realizes that the adoption of such radical measures would lead to a condition ot affairs In the Sout?f that would make his .Administra tion exceed I nalv unoleasaut. to say the least, ami I for milder measures. The Heed programme of force lias been dis tasteful to him from the start, and the mote It has developed the more have widened the political relations betweeu the President aud the Speaker. In these viewsMr. Harrison Is warmly seconded by Secretary Ulaine. In fact, it Is said that the Premier Is adverse to any change In the present election laws, while the President thinks they should be altered and extended to cover coun try as Hell as city districts.

The special committee of the House to which the lottery proposition was teferred will probsbly report to-day. Their report will, of course, be favorable, m there are a ma jorlty of lotteryltes on the orrmmlthse. A minority report will lie presented by the anils. The latter report will foe lone ami spicy. It Is eenerally believed that the fight will take piece on Tues day, when the bill comes up for final passage, provided It Is not laid over subject to call.
