THE TARIFF BILL. The Pulp, Papers and Books Schedule Discussed. Frye on the Importance of the Pulp Industry. Washington. June 18. Mr. Hill mov ed in the senate today to place coal on the free list and made a speech in sup port of free coal and the redemption of Democratic pledges. The senate today after some routine business entered on the 12th week of the tariff debate. The temperature was sweltering, the mercury standing 81 in the chamber. At the request of Mr. Piatt the para graphs 288 and 289 of the silk schedule passed over Saturday were again passed over today and schedule M. pulp, pa per and books was taken up. Mr. Fery protested against the first paragraph of the schedule placing a duty of 100 per c ent on mechanically ground wood pulp and chemical wood pulp, bleached or unbleached. The production of wood pulp, said Mr. Frye, was an enormous industry, em ploying 70,000 men, turning out a pro duct valued at $35,000,000 annually, and paying an annual wage of $23,000,000. Under the operation of the present duty the cost of paper had greatly decreased. Wood pulp bad decreased in price from 4- cents per pound to 1J4 cents in the last ten years. It was produced in twenty-nine states, but principally in Maine and New York. He appealed to to the other side to "make the duty speci fic instead of advalorem and proposed an amendment to substitute equivalent specific rates, say $2. An amendment to substitute equivalent specific rates say $2.50 per ton, on wood pulp, mechanically ground, chemical wood pulp, unbleached $5 per ton and ble ached $6.50 per ton. The Democratic members " of the finance committee refused to accept the amendment and it was rejected 20 23. It was not until coal was reached that opposition developed. The house bill placed coal on the free list. The finance committee amendment duty placed- a duty of 40 cents per ton on bituminous coal and shale, 15 cents on slack aud culm and 15 per cent advaloren on coke. As soon as the clerk had read this paragraph Mr. Hill and Mr. Peller jumped to their feet. The New York senator was recognized, and he sent to the clerk's desk an amendment to rele gate bituminous coal and shale to the free list. 3:30 p. m. The vote on Mr. Hill's mo tion to place bituminous coal on the free list was: Yeas 7; nays 51. Messrs. Allen, Hansbrough, Hill, Irby, Kyle, PefEer and Washburn voted aye. Senator Hill said today that he reserv ed the right to vote for or against the tariff bill when "I see what it is as finali ty." Passionately exclaiming: "God knows what the bill will be like when it passes the senate and comes out of con ference; God knows how many more ex tortions and concessions will be wrung from the unwilling hands of the commit tee."

Vance and Campbell and W. C. Webb appear for the plaintiff and County Attorney Harry SafforJ with A. B. Quinton appear for the board. Carl Jockheck was put on the stand. He thousrht the property was worth all of $16,500. "Is this property your homestead?" "Yes, sir; I have lived there twenty one years." "State how you came into possession of the property?" "It belonged to my wife when I mar ried her. She died in 1887." "What part of the property is yours?" "Miss Shaffer and myself are equal owners." "What relation is Miss Shaffer to you?" "She is my step-daughter." Sir. Jockheck stated that he never talked to any of the commissioners about the purchase of his lots until after the litigation began.

Over an Inch and a Half of Rainfall ia a Short Time. ! A little after 6 o'clock this morning a rain and thunder storm occurred which lasted for about an hour and a half and which caused high water in many places. The rainfall was 1.66 inches. It was the heaviest rain that has fallen here this year. The streets were turned into small rivers and many yards were flood ed. Electric car men say that it was im possible to see the ground twenty feet away during the heaviest part of the storm, and the lightning was very vivid. The wind was blowing at a high rate of speed and the hail that fell was driven against window panes with such force that it broke the glass in a number of houses. At Walnut Grove there is a lake two blocks square at the corner of Eighteenth and Van Buren streets. It is caused by surface water. The Shunganunga is full and some fears are entertained lest it will overflow its banks and cause another flood like it did two years ago. The Fourteenth street bridge over the creek is badly damaged by the water and it will require a good deal of repairing to make it safe. The creek is getting a good washing out, and it needed it bad enough. All kinds of unpleasant things are floating down stream. A horse's head was seen to pass the Sixth street bridge bnd there are several dead hogs caught in the "chug" under the bridge. The creek has formed a new channel at Sixth street and it threatens to undermine the piles of the bridge and also to cut out a large telephone pole. In Parkdale there is an abundance of water and the small boy is making the best of his opportunities by using the floating sidewalks for boating purposes. From Sixth street south to Ninth in Parkdale it is pretty nearly a continuous .pond. The streets are covered with wat- r and nearly all the wooden sidewalks are out of place. The brick sidewalks ,are covered with a layer of mud and the lawns -are swamps. Street Commissioner Naylor has a force of men at work at the Sixth street bridge removing the drift in order to re lieve the immense pressure that the water is making. J The electric cars could not get to the end of the cemetery line this morning as there was about a foot of water over the track. One brave motorneer tried to get through it and the result was that an other car had to pull his car to the shop for repairs. 'i he Oakland - cars were unable to get to the end of the line this morning on account of high water at the river, under the Santa Fe bridge. The water from the lower part of the city rushed down and covered the tracks at this point to a depth of three feet. The Shunganunga creek will not over flow its batiks unless there is more rain. The river has begun to rise a little but the high water may be expected there tomorrow morning. At the United States weather bureau Observer T. B. Jennings says that it will rain more very soon at least such are the indications. At 7 o'clock this morning the temperature was 62 degrees. The bar ometer is a shade below the normal con dition. At 2 o'clock this afternoon the temperature was 69 degrees. At Swift & Holliday's it was 70 degrees. STRUCK BY Llti-HTMNG. The English Lutheran is Hit Also a ltusiiience in Lowman Mill.

The English Lutheran church on the corner of Fifth and Harrison street was struck. The lightning entered the steeple squarely in - the center and ran down the northeast cor ner and come out through the brick wall. The shingles on the weat side of the steeple were also torn off. With the exception of some slight dam age to the frescoing the interior of the church was not damaged much. The house of W. W. Decker, at 1009 Prospect street, Lowman Hill, was struck about 6 o'clock. Mr. Decker was light ing a gasoline stove at the time. I he shock v.'hirled him around several times and upset "the burner.
