STATE JOUHXAL. FRIDAY EVENTNG. JTHSTE 15. 1894.
THE FIGHTFOR WOOL Republicans Making1 a Hard Contest for a Duty. They Declare it Must Not Come in Free. MANY SENATORS TALK. Representative Holman Scored in the House. Washington, Jane 15. Soma rou tine business preceded the resumption of the tariff debate in the senate yes terday. Bills were passed as follows; To pay Joseph Red fern, one of the Ford theater rictims; 83,748; to au thorize the appointment of women as public school trustees in the District of Columbia; for the development and encouragement of silk culture in the United States; to pay the heirs of James Bridger $S,0O0. A bill for the relief of the heirs of John Weight man, passed some time ago, was on motion of Mr. Quay considered and recommitted. When the tariff bill was laid before the tenate, Mr. Lodge took the floor with a.n argument ag-ainst free wool. Mr. Teller of Colorado followed Mr. Lodge with some remarks in favor of a duty on raw wool. In the course of his speech he read a statement from the New York Tribune to the effect that "the Senatorial auctioneers," In order to save the sugar schedule arid pass their bills, had traded off pro hibitory duties on cotton and woolens. Mr. Vest joined Mr. Aldrich in an emphatic denial that there had been any bargains to obtain prohibitory duties. Later, while discussing the reduction of the rates on woolens. Mr. Hawley interrupted Mr. Teller to remark that these reductions would result inevitably in lower ing the wajres of the operatives 30 or 40 per cent it was "either a reduc tion of wages or the manufacturers would quit." "They will not quit," replied Mr. Teller. "Tliey have too much capital involved. They will reduce wages, ant! the operatives, faced with starva tion, will stiind the reduction. Men who live by their labor can not make a successful contest acainst capital." Mr. Hoar, as one of the representa tives of the preat woolen manufac turing states in the country, indorsed, the statements made that the New England maul'aeturers did not desire free wool, by the vote, bargain or silence of their representatives in congress. Mr. Pltt of Connecticut followed with an argument along- the line of that of Mr. lioar, denj-ing- like fhe Massachusetts senator, that the woolen manufacturers favored free wool. They believed in protection as entirely for all alike. Mr. lli-gins of Delaware followed in opposition to free wool. Mr. Chandler talked for an hour in favor of ample protection to wool and woilens. Mr. Dolph followed with an arg-ument against free wool. During- the progress of his speech he remarked that it was whispered about the sen ate that the opposition to the bill had surrendered and that the bill would pass before the end of the present month. If he could prevent it, he de clared the bill would not be voted upon until the people had had a chance to give an expression of their opinion at the general elections next fall. At 6:15 the senate adjourned. SECTARIANISM IX THE HOUSE. It Comes Up In the Debate on the In dian Appropriation BUI. Washington June 15. Iu the house yesterday an amendment by Mr. Pickler, appropriating 3j,000 for arte sian wells at Pine Ridge, Rosebud and Standing Rock agencies, was agreed to. A bitter personal attack was made on Mr. Holman by Mr. Johnson of In diana, who alluded to the influences which had operated to have Mr. Sayres appointed chairman of the committee on appropriations over older men on the committee Mr. Hol man and had resulted in the latter getting control of but one appropria tion bill instead of all. He asserted that the habit of this "small and penurious man" (Mr. Holman) of "juggling" with the Indian appropri ation bill would soon result in the extermination of the Indian, which purpose he believed was at the bot tom of his assignment to the chair manship of the committee on Indian affairs. During all this tirade Mr. Holman pat quietly in his seat, giving no in dication of having heard a word. A long debate was precipitated on an amendment by Mr. Johnson of Indi ana, raising the salary of the super intendent of Indian schools from $2,roo to $3,000. The amendment was defeated. The old sectarian qxiestion in con nection with I ndian schools was raiseu by Mr. Gear, who offered an amend ment providing: "It is hereby de clared that it is the purpose of this act that no money herein appropriated shall be paid for education in sectar ian schools, and the secretary of the interior is hereby authorized and re quired to make all needful rules and regulations to prevent the use of said funds in sectarian schools." A point of order was made against this amendment by Mr. Tracey, on the ground that it changed existing law. and the chair sustained the point. The house then adjourned. Their (.olden Auninnarf.

Miner Leaders Called Upon to Step Down- Bank and File Seems to Against Compromise.. be A CONFERENCE JUNE 19 A. A. Adams Talked Of for the New Leader. Columbus, Ohio, June 15. President A. A. Adams of the Ohio Miners' asso ciation (District No. 6) issued a call yesterday for a meeting of miners in Columbus, Tuesday, June 19. He asks the miners to select their best men to represent them, as business of vast importance will have to be acted upon. President McBryde of the National Miners' association states that unless the compromise is ac cepted by the miners that a general meeting will be called, at which, the national officers will tender their res ignations. McBryde gives it as his opinion that unless the Ohio miners accept the agreement they will be compelled to go back to work at 40 cents a ton instead of 60. The national officers formerly treat ed Adams and his theories with con tempt, but sinc; he has so strong a following and indorsement of his course on the agreement, he is recog nized as a formidable factor. Presi dent McBryde recognizes the impor tance of giving the Adams movement a more than passing attention. Adams telegraphed J. W. Murray. vice president of the Illinois miners, that the executive board signed over his head; that the men would not ac cept the compromise, and asking him to stand firm. Murray, at the recent meeting, refused with Adams to sign the scale. The harmony of action be tween these two, together with the fact that the miners are following Adams, holding meetings and de manding the resignation of the na tional officers, leads to the conclusion that Adams is getting in line to fill McBryue's place should the latter re sign. Mcliryde claims that the action of the executive board in signing the scale was in accord with the views of the district presidents, of whom Adams was one. Removing? Zntrnders. Hartshore, I. T.
