t-V BEATEN. IN CATJCUS 8EUAT0EIAL TAEIFF KIOKEES GET UOTETffG TEOM YOORHEES. Senator Pngli's Motion to Pnt Iron Ore on tlio Dutiable List Toted Down, and the Dissalislictl Sen ators Throw Up the Spouse. The Bill to ho lteporled to the Senate as Pre pared hy the Pi nance Comin it tee "otes. WAsniN'CTOX, Feb. 2S. The Democratic special caucus on a tariff bill is over, and both sides aro claiming to have made pro gress. The outcome is in the uatura of a victory for the Democratic members of the finance committee who prepared the bill, as it was returned to them without any instructions to make any changes. Im mediately after the adjournment of the caucus Senators Gorman, Brice. Hill, Smith, Murphy, Camden nud one or two others, who have been known to bo very ranch opposed to the bill of the finance committee, held a consultation, and their attitude was in di rect contrast with tne members of the finance committee. During the tbiee days ended last night but one vote was ta ken, and that but a few minutes before ad journment. This was on a proposition to instruct the finance committeo to put iron ore on the dutiable list, without any rate mentioned whatever, and this was lost by a vote of 19 to 17. Senator Pugh of Alabama stated that ho would not be bound by the action of the caucus, and reserved the right to support his, motion in the senate. Several senators at onca declared that it would usele-s to take any more votes if senators did not in tend to ahide bv the action of the caucun. Then Senator Voorhees, chairman of the finance committee, moved that the caucus ndjouru, to meet at the call of the chair mau, with the understanding that the finance committee should continue its work and report as soon as possible. Senator Brice said tonight that the re sult could not be considered in the light of u defeat for those who were instrumental in bringing about the caucus. He claim ed that a great deal had been accomplish ed, in pietenting to the committee the ideas and wishes of individuals upon tho tariff. It has been demonstrated to them that certain schedules did not meet the approval of a large number of senators. 'Theiohad been a full hearing for every senator, and every Democratic senator be tween now and tho time when tho bill is reported will bo accorded a hearing by the finance committee. Vhilo the members of the finance com mittee are reticent, what they sny in ilicates that they feel that the caucus has lesulted in a vindication of the bill which they have prepared, and, Instead of being instructed by the caucus, they are free to present such a bill as they think is best bulled to tho principles of the party and tne necessities of tho revenue. It is cltdined that those who brought about the caucus expected to secure votes enongh to pluco a duty on wool, iron ore, sugar, lumber, salt and a number of other articles, and increase the duty on other articles, and yet, upon tho test, tho roposition fell short of votes. Opinion seems to be divided as to ivhether tho committee will now make any change. The impression is that some changes of a minor nature will be made, as well as some concessions granted where the demands have been apparently justi fied, and where the changes will not neces sitate changes in the biil. The afternoon session of the caucus pre icnted somo interesting features. Al though it was expected that there would he more voting and not very much talk, it turned out that it was devoted almost ex clusively to talk. Senators Gormrau, Rati froin, Jones, Morgan, Pugu. aud Berry poke. The latter spoke in support of tho bill as framed. Senator Pugh's motion for a duty on iron ore bad been made the day before, and ho was anxious for a vote, bur, at the request of Senator Brice, ho withdrew it The pending question was the resolution of Senator Martin, instructing the finance committee to make a number of changes iu the bill. In order to get a vote on the iron ore proposition, Senator Martin withdrew his resolution, and the vote was taken, with the result above noted, which prac tically put au end to the caucus. HOUSE OPINION'S. Washington, Feb. us. i'he members of ;be ways and means committee of the Jiousa are watching with tho keenest iu lerest the action of the senate caucus ou the tariff bill. For tho time being, tho Bland silver bill has scant attention smoug tho tariff leaders. Tho ways aud means committeo room is again the cen ter of activity, where the course of tho tcnate caucus is pretty fully understood nud discnsed. Tho tendency to put the Wilson bill under fire is watched for ttie ultimate effect it will have on a revision of the tariff. Tho statement made in tho caucus that (ha Wilson bill had been framed without any consultation with President Cleveland or Secretary Carlisle Is denied by member-, of the committee. An Associated Press representative talked today with all the Democratic members of tho committeo iu tiie city. It disclosed that thoy are not apprehen sive that the tenate's action will mateti ally chnnge the policy aud the schedules of the Wilson bill. Representative McMillin of the commit tee said: "The public sentiment of the :ountry is so great for tariff reform that ao man or set of men cau stand in the ivay of it. I have no fear that the cause of tariff reduction will be seriously em bamtssod or delayed by the actiou of the .mucus. Chauges in the Wilsou bill will undoubtedly be made, but all will como right, for a tariff bill necessarily repre sents a compromi.so of various views." Representative Bryan of the committee laid: "The statement that the president nd Secretary Carlisle wero not consulted an tho Wilson hill Is erromus. The mem bcis of the committee lreqnenily con ferred with .Mr. Carlisle. 'I hey had his dvice and help, aud, as I uuder-tood, his issent was given to the measure. The tariff bill is not jeopardized by the actiou 9f the senate. Tnere will be chamrts. hut hro:id and substantial reveuues revision will surely he accomplished." Representative Breckiuridge of Arknn f s, who has been closely allied with Mr. Y ilson m framing the tariff bill, and who has been of late conferring with the shu Hte finance committee as to the changes proposed, said: "I have no doubt that our friends in tho senate will come together on some common ground, and that the senate and the hou-e, ultimately, will agree on a comprehensive and just le vMon of the tariff."

The Northwestern Miller says: "The mills last week ground 143,735 bar rels of flour, auainst 115,500 the week be fore and 177.C75 for the corresponding time in "1693. The output the present week will be still larger. A better demand for flour is responsible for the increased activity. The strength shown by wheat has induced freer buying of flour, and last week's sales approximated 240.000 barrels. Buyers wanted orders at old quotations, but were not always accommodated. Most Minneapolis firms found the expjrt trade somewhat better, aud a moderate amount of patent as well as baker's sold a little bettor for April shipment. Some country mills report that they have of late been able to sell for expoitat fairly satisfactory prices, while in the domestic markets they could do scarcely anything. "The lower freights have placsd feed on a more equitable btsis compared with the east, aud the demand is quite active for red dog. Though the flour market was in better form during the bulge in wheat last week, goods have siuce been marked down in sympathy with the decline, and buyers are as mdependent as ever. The reduction of 10 cents per birrel in freight will not tend to start" the mills.for it is understood that they have been able to get a r.ite equal or even better than the published re duction for some weeks back. The ex ports were 4,821 barrels, against 9,100 bar rels the preceding week. THE PASSENGER RATE WAR. Eastern Lines Anxious to Keep of the Present Fight. Out CHICAGO, Feb. 2S. The attitude of the Western Passenger association lines toward the Southern Pacific aud Atchison fight will be determined tomorrow. At to day's meeting of the association. Pas senger Traffic Manager White of the Atchison, mado a long statement, review ing the relations of his lino with the Southern Pacific, and reiterating his state ment of the causes leading up to the pres ent trouble. He doted his remarks by asking that, as called for under the as sociation agreement, Uie association line-, should stand by its members as against all others, and that the eastern lines of the association should cease all business rela tions with the Southern Pacific. The matter went over until tomorrow, when Chairman Caldwell will give the matter a hearing. He may render his decision at once, or take it" under advisement for several days. The Atchison will, if the decision be ad verse to it, promptly withdraw from the Western Passenger association and mako its fight from Chicago instead of from the Missouri river. Its business east of the Missouri river is comparatively nothing. while the heavv interests of the majority of the other association lines are east of tho river. They care comparatively little what goes ou west of the river, provided they are not molested east of it. .Nothing will bring them to tho position of the Atchison more quickly than the prospect of a demoralization of rates east of the river. They prefer to stand neutral, but they cannot with the Atchison making a fight from Chicago. WILSON VERY WEAK. Citt or Ml'XICo, Feb. 28. Chairman Wilson was reported not so well today.

Tho Southern View of the Carter Plan of Representation. Washington. Feb. 2S The Republicans of the south, according to their representa tives iu congress, will strenuously oppose the propositiou of Chairman Carter of the Republican national committee, to chauge the plan of organization for the next na tional convention. Two plaus were dis cussed at the nieetiug of the executive committee iu. Washington, as thu culmi nation of the auitatioti that has been going on for some time among northern Repub licans, based ou the idea that as the south gives Republican candidates no electoral votes, it is allowed undue influence in the nominating convention. One of these plans is to allow one delegate for every 7,000 votes cast for the Republican candi date iu the preceding pieaideutial election. Tho other propositiou is to continue the present representation of two delegates from each congressional district and allow an additional delegate for every 7.00J votes. Either proposition would materially re duce the representation of the southern states. The arguments against the change were succinctly presented toJav by Repre sentative ThoniHs Settle of North Caro lina, tho only Republican member from the south now iu the city, who is promi nent iu the politics of his state, and whose father was a leading southern Republican. Said Mr. Settle: "Tho southern Republicans will be un alterably opposed to the chauge, aud I think it very unwise aud impolitic to agitato the matter at this time. It is an unjust aud uufriendly blow aimed at southern Republicans by their northern hrethern. Just at this time, when tho Democriatic pirty has repudiated its pledges, made through the medium of its state platforms in every southern state for the last fifteen or twenty years, to enact a law for the free and unlimited coinage of silver as soon as they came into power nationally, anil while they aro waging u n rolentiug war on southern interests and resources iu their proposed tariff legisla tion, it seems that wi-sdom would suggest it was time to extend a helping hand to southern Rapublicaus rather thau strike them a blow. "We fight against odds to which north ern Republicans are strangers. The enforce ment of unjust election laws disfranchises tens of thousands of Republican voters in the south. It would be a strange proceed ing, one not in keeping with the history and traditions of the party, to indorse these election laws and Democratic methods by denying these disfranchised Republicans a voice in nominating conventions. This is doue if we are only accorded representa tion upon the basis of votes returned or actually cast. The R?publicau party has always protested against Democratic sup pression of Republican votes in the south, yet some of its leaders propose to deny us representation in party councils, just in proportion as we aro denied the right of votinc, by Democratic chicanery and fraud. , "Acting under the advice of northern lenders wo ran no election ticket ia Ala bama at the last election, that the popu- list. mignr, it possioie. overpower the Democrats. Theieare other instances of the same sort, yet if the proposed plan is carried out such a course" would cue dowu our representation in conventions. An other argument against the change pro posed by Chairman Carter is that it would iucrefi.se the number of delegates iu con ventions, while in the past the weakest point iu conventions has been that they were too largo for the practicil working of parliamentary parties."

TO SOUND THE CZAE PEE1T0H DIPLOMATS EXPOSED BY ALEXANDRE'S rAVOfilTE. Princess Marie of Orleans Requested hy au Attache of the Copenhagen. Embassy to Se nire Answers to Certain Questions in Refer ence to the Attitude of Russia in Case of War Between France and Germany. X o t e s . PAP.IS, Feb. 2S A sensation has been caused in this city and elsewhere by the nppearance of an article in Figaro, in which the czar of Russia, Prin cess Mario D'Orleans, wife of Prince Waldemar, of Denmark, Count de Beanchamp, a captain in the French army, and French military attache at Copenhagen; General Borius, secretary general and military chief of the house hold of President Caruot, and others, play conspicuous roles. Some idea of tho grav ity of the relution may be gathered from the fact that Premier Casimir-Perier to pay submitted to President Carnoo for hi9 signature a decree removing Count D'Aunay, ex-minister to Copenhagen, from the diplomatic service owing to his connection with the affair. The revelations are associated with the Franco-Russian alliance, aud appear to have been, generally speaking, tha result of intrigue carried on beHind the backs of the deputy ministers. This is not the first time tho name of Princess D'Orleaus has been connected with court intrigues. The priucess is stated to be u remarkably clever and attractive lady; she is a daughter of the duke of Charles; was born Jan. 13, 1S65, aud was married to Prince Waldemar, who is a captain in the Danish naw, at the chateau d'Eu on October 22, 1833. Some idea of the power of intrigue which the priucess is suid to possess may be gathered from the fact that ex Minister Flourens does not scruple to describe her as tho "conscious artificer" of Prince Bis marck's downfall. The party sprouting up arouud Prince Henry of Charles is said to consider the Princess Marie D'Orleans as its bona dea (good gooddes-,). The favor in which the princess stands with the czar is based both upon family relations and tha pleasure he takes in her unconventional conversation and her spirits. The crown of Xorway has been dangled before the eyes of the Prin ces Marie D'Orleans, and French diplo mats were at her beck and call. When ever the cz-ir was at Fredanborg, the country residence so much enjoyed by the royal family of Ddumark, his imperial majesty was much in company with his sister-in-law. She. like the czar, is fond of animals and long walks, aud the czur frequently accompanied her through the woods. Naturally, it is sup posed, the priucess had great influence over the cz'ir, and being a thorough Frenchwoman, and spontaneous in her im pulses, she suggested to the czar that, during the sojourn of Admiral Avellan and the Russian officers iu Paris la-a autum, his majesty should receive two French war vessels at Copenhagen, where he was then on a visit to the royal family. The princess communicated these facts to the French minister at Copenhagen, and theczir, in the course of time, inspected tho French warships which wero sent to Copenhagen. The chief incident mentioned in connec tion with the revelations is the alleged at tempt to obtain through the Princess Marie D' Orleans an idea of the czar's real feeling ou the scope of the Franco Russian alliance. With this object in view, Captain Beauchamp is said 10 have approached the princess, telling her of the information which was required by the French government, or rather by Presi dent Curuor. The princess, according to tho story, is said to have replied vaguely to the suggestions of Captaiu Beauchamp, who subsequently handed four written questions to tho favorite of the czar, ask ing the princess to try and obtain answers to them. The first two of these questions were: "What does Russia expect of Franco in return for the real friendship she is mani festing towards?" "Do you think the czir considers him self pledged towards France at any rate so far as the defensive is concerned?" At the request of tho princess these questions wero left with her for two days. Bater Captain Beauchamp wrote to the priucess. saying that a rpply was awaited at tho Elysee palace. Then, it seem, it occurred to the princess that she could not allow the matter to proceed further without placing herself in a false position toward the French government, and she sent for the French minister, Count D'Auny, aud informed him that she felt bound not to leave the government in tho dark in regard to all that was going on. M. Pasteur, secretary of the legation, im mediately commuuscated the facts, and, in accord with instructions, called again on the princess aud persuaded her to baud him the questions. The deputy cabinet a few days later came to grief, and when the present ministry was formed Count D'Auuay went to Paris and delivered the documents to Premier Casimir-Perier, with tho result already told. Captain Beauchamp has been recalled and given a year's leave. The Argentine Times denounces the ad ministration of President Pelligrini dur the last year of his term. It declares that the president spent foirr times the amount provided by the budget, and says that he lias increased the national debt by $240, 000,000.
