Lively Scenes in the Senate Today. Senator Gorman Unable to Con tain Himself". SCORES TUEP11ESIDENT In the Most Bitter and Scorch inr Terms. Ho Delivers a Dramatic De fiance And Says 'the Limit of Endurance His Deen Reached." Washington", July 23. The battle over the conference report on the tariff bill was resumed in the senate today. The attendance in the galleries and on the floor was oven larger than on Friday. The ladies and gentlemen, prominent in society and public life, were conspicuous in the res-erved galleries, and several members of the diplomatic corjja occu pied the terra cotta tier of plush benched opposite the vice president's chair. After the expiration of the preliminary routine business at 1 :20 Senator Voorhees called upon the conference report oa the tariff bill a id then the storm broke. Mr. Gorman immediately arose. He hoped he appreciated the gravity of the situa tion lie began, He hoped that the sena tors would meet the situation an became patriotic man and duty bound Democrats, it was idle for him to add anything to what had teen said last Friday by the senator Iron New Jersey (Mr. Smith). In the house there was an overwhelm ingly Democratic majority, Heie the Democratic senators were at the outset confronted with the fact that there wero but forty-fjur Democrats. A bill must be framed which would insure the sup port of all these senators, all of whose votes save one were necessary to pass it. Tbat one vote was lost. The gentleman from New York (Mr. Hill) had from the beginning opposed the bill, openly and manfully. The Democrats, faced with such a condition, had gone manfully to work to work to harmonize the differences and had ac complished it by many sacrifices l;;nw a: the saerilice of prin ciple. Xo legislative body in this country had ever beeu confronted with such a condition. The reports of the states of Xw York, New Jersey, Ohio, West Virginia and Maryland, at the out set announced that the house bill was so radical; so destructive of the interests of the people that they would not support it. Corman Defiance. Then in dramatic tones he delivered his derianco. The infamous calumnies heaped upon the heads of the senate forced from his lips, ho said, a plain un varnished statement of the facts, lie would make it, he said.with malice toward none, but he would look his colleagues an d the American people in the eye and tell the truth. In patriotism the Democratic senate ha t goue to work to save the country and keep their party in power when sudden ly in the midst of the struggle came the president's letter. "It was the most uncalled for, the most extraordinary, most unwise communication." "said he, in bitter tones, '-that ever came from a president of the I'nited States. It placed this body in a position where its members must see to it that the dignity and honor of its chamber must be pre served. "It places me," said Mr. Gorman, "in a position where I must tell the story as it occurred. The limit of endurance has beeu reached." Mr. Gorman then proceeded to detad the story of the tariff bill after it reached the senate. Messrs. Vest and Jones ha 1 frequent conference with Secretary Carlisle and often times with Mr. Cleveland himself. He charged directly that every one of the senate amendments had been Keen by Se -rotary Carlisle and scanned by him before they were agreed upon. He drew from his desk and had read an interview with Secretary Carlisle on April 30, in which the secretary of the treasury gave the same bill his sweep ing endorsement. Cleveland Indoraed the Senate Mill. On the morning following the publica tion of tl.at interview the papers an nounced tt at the president was In entire accord wita his secretary of the treasury. It was not true then, that the fifty-two Democratic senators on this side of the chamber had been misled. There was no suggestion any where either from the president or the secre tary of the treasury that the bill as mod ified was a violation of Democratic prin ciples. With dramatic emphasis Mr. Gormaa called on Messrs. Vest, Jones and Voorhees to bear testimony as to whether his statement had varied a hair's breadth from the truth. "Let the people have the truth," he eaid, as he ceased. Senator Vt Speaks. Mr. Vest arose. He began by saying that he had not himself seen the presT dent since the repeal of the Sherman law, but with the secretary of the treas ury he had frequent conversations. " Mr. Carlisle hai repeatedly and distinctly stated to h:m that the greatest possible calamity that could happen would be the failure of any bill. He had distinctly stated to him that uo difference in rates should be allowed to stand in the way of the consummation of pome change of tariff refor;n. His colleague, Mr. "jone had seen bith Mr. Carlisle and Mr.Ceve land; they had both declared ttiat the bill was acceptable to them. The bill did not sait him (Vest). He knew it must have the support of the adminis tration to pass it, and he asked Mr. Jones if the president would throw the weight of his indueoce into it. Mr. Jones re plied that the president had said to him: ''I am willing to do anything to pass the bill through congress." 'If we go into this tight, the president must be behind us," Mr. Vest had said. .Mr. Jones replied that he was. Thereupon." said Mr. Vest, "I gave up my personal opinions and resolved to support it. The president's letter was the first intimation to me that he was against us." J'nlaas Death. When Mr. Vest sat down Mr. Jones, who was in charge of the bill in the sen ate, took the floor. He was as pale as death. He had talked with Mr. Carlisle about his plan, and the president en dorsed it as wise. "I requested him to explain every thing to the president," said Mr. Jones. "I saw the president. He told me Mr. Carlisle had explained all. He (Cleve land) said he thought we were doing the wise and proper thing. Among the amendments thus prepared were those placing coal and iron on the dutiable list. "Until I read Mr. Cleveland's letter to Mr. Wilson," said Mr. Jones, emphatical ly, "I believed he cordially approved our action. I had exj ressed to him the opinion that it must be either this modi tied bill or none at all, and he hail replied that in the alternative he favored the modified measure." As j-enatur Jones sat down, Mr.Gorman arose to resume, but Mr. Vilas interposed with a series of questions to Jones. "In your interviews with the presi dent," asked Mr. Vilas, '-were the sub jects of coal and iron ever mentioned".. ' "Yes. replied Mr. Jones with explosive vehemence, "at every conversation be tween the president and myself coal and iron were specifically mentioned." There was a burst of applause from the galleries which the presiding officer hail difliculty in c hecking. "And." continued Mr. Jone9, with measured emphasis, on each word, "the president never once uttered one solitary word against going ahead with coal and iron in the bill as then in the senate." "One more question," said Mr. Vilas: "Did not the president express the hope at all times that iroa and coal should be on the free list':" "At all times yes. But it was the ex pression of a hope that the circumstances would pern: it its realization.'' Senator Gorman next summoned Sen ator Harris, who left the presiding officer's chair for the purpose as a wit ness. Senator Harris stated that in con versation with -Mr. Cleveland, ho (Har ris) hud been led to conclude that the president favored the passage of the compromise senate bill, not because he liked it, but because it was the best that could be secured. "(.luries Tonlly Made." Mr. Gorman here resumed with one of tho most sensational references of the day. The senator spoke of the deep re gret that he was compelled to ask the public testimony of these senators, Rut the time had come to speak. The limit of endurance had been reached. Tha senate had beeu traduced. An attempt had been made to "try and gibbet it be fore the country.'' Ihese charges had been "foully made from distinguished sources." that they must be met and re futed. The charges were echoed by men who chirped when, he talked." The senators who had been summoned had fought for the tariff reform when "cowards in high ples would not show their heads." Mr. Gorman said he could conceive no reason for the remarkable actiou that had been taken unless perhaps the one responsible for it was "consumed by vanity" iu having the country regard him as the author of all that was right in tariff reform. As Mr. Gorman mails eac h reference to the paesident, there was a commotion in the galleries which compelled the pre siding olticer to impose constant cautions against further demonstrations. Mr. Gorman next turned his attention to Senator Hill's speech of Friday en dorsing President Cleveland's letter. "That letter," said 31 r. Gorman, "was a godsend to the senator from New York. It was the only comfort he had from this administration." Laughter . As the laughter continued, Mr. Hill arose and with good nature l delibera tion said: "In the last proposition I will say that the senator from Maryland is entirely correct." Mr. Gorman proceeded to criticise Mr. Hill's course, and asserted that the 2s ew York senator had throughout attempted to thwart his party. Never before since the Declaration of Independence. Mr. Gorman went on, had a president of the United States been guilty of such a violation of the spirit of the constitution as had Mr. Cleveland in writing his letter to Chairman Wilson. He handed it to Mr. Blackburn, and had the Kentucky senator read the extract from Washington's farewell address about the encroachment of the executive on the powers of cougress as subversive of the principles of the republic. "Pure" Men Should Hate I lean Hands. Ha referred to the great political ex citement attending the Ilayes-Tiiden controversy and the fear of the concen tration of the army at Washington. Forms of law had averted that catastro phe. There had been, he went on, no further concentration of power. Confer ence committees had been free from out side influences. The liberty of the sen ate had been invaded, he said in thun derous tones, "though a thousand hire lings write us down and traduce us." 'the president, ha concluded, had said it would be dishonorable to tax coal and iron. The house, parrot-like, repeated the cry. "Men who set up high stand ards, said the senator, "snould come to us with clean hands." He urged that the house, if it had been consistent, would have placed all raw materials on the free list. He enumer ated other raw materials which the house had made dutiable. He denied that it was either Democratic doctrine or in ac cordance with Democratic platform doc trines to place coal and iron on the free list. He enumerated the amount of the tix on coal placed by different Demo cratic congressmen. "The same bills also spoken of," inter rupted Mr. Hill, "placed wool and tim ber on the dutiable list." " 1 hey did," replied Mr. Gorman. He proceeded to declare that the dera ocratie pltaform did not demand free raw material. He went back to the platform of 1S4, on which he said Mr. Cleveland was elected by the grace of God and a great deal of hard wort "It did not provide for free raw mate rials. Ihe bill prepared by his distin guished radical friend (Mr. Mills) placed 75 cents duty on coal. "I was in the name situation then," in terrupted Mr. Mills, "that I am now. I was in the hands of half a dozen men who forced a duty on coaL It was noi ray choice." "I am not attacking you," said Mr.Gor man deprecatingly. "You said I prepared a bill with taxed coal in it," replied Mr. Mills hotly. Itadlcala in the Saildle. Mr. Gorman then gave the story of the convention of 1jh.h where he said the radicals were in the saddle. A resolution wa3 adapted indorsing the Mills bill taxing coal. Mr. Cleve land accepted it and stood on it He re ferred to the platform declaration of 1892, prepared by Mr. Cleveland's friends, commending the house, "for go ing in the direction of free raw mater ials." The radical resolution sprung in the convention was pushed by those who desired to defeat his nomination. But it did not defeat his nomination. No one expected Mr. Cleveland to stand on that radical plank. Mr. Cleveland's letter was looked for ward to with anxiety. In it Mr. Cleve land declared specifically against the destruction of any industry and in favor of "freer raw materials." "That letter," Mr. Gorman said, "changed the tide and elected Mr. Cleve land president. At 2:17 p. m. the senate went into ex ecutive session. At 2:30 p. m., the senate adjourned until tomorrow at 12 o'clock. 1Ioua Atljournfi. Washington, July 23.

At Gritlith a light en gine was rhnning down to the gravel bank in charge of Engineer Hart.

The latest in smoked glasses at Chas. I3eunett' Optical store, 713 Kaa. ave. Chicago, July 23. What 13 considered by labor leaders and their counsel to be one of the most imoortant letral battles in the nation's history, was begun in the U nited States circuit court today, when President Debs, Vice President Howard, Secretary Keleher and Director Rogers, of the American. Railway union, by. their attorneys, W. W. Erwin, 8. S. Gregory and C. S. Darrow, liled their answers to the contempt rule issued by the court against them last week and came themselves in court to make a return to the writ. The defense propose to carry the case to the supreme court of th United States in the event of an adverse decision here and if defeated there to appeal through congress to the people. Tne policy of the defense will be to question the right and power of the court to issue injunctions like that ob tained by the railway companies against Debs and his associates and then im prison those enjoined, if the injunction be violated. It will be contended that what the court has done amounts to a usurpation of power not given to the federal judiciary either constitution or law. The de genio will follow closely the lines of the report of the Boatner com mittee of congress which investigated the injunction and contempt proceedings by Judge Jenkins. Labor organizations throughout the country will contribute money to defray the expenses of this legal struggle. 'Ihe American Federation of Labor has given $1,000. Other associations are to follow, and the contest will be carried to the bitter end. If the supreme court declares the injunction and contempt method to be good law, congress will be asked, labor leaders say, to amend the statutes and curb the power of the courts and every candidate for congress will be asked to pledge himself for such reform. The Debs answer tiled today is as fol lows: In the circuit court of the I'nited States Northern district of Illinois, United States of America, complainant vs. Eugene V. Debs, George VV. Howard, L.

I maintain that this is a clear usurpation of power." '1 he governor quoted section 4, article 4, of the constitution, iu support of his position. lie maintained that the con tention that a strike on a railroad was an interruption of commerce would apply equally to a factory, and that manufac turers would soon demand federal troops to compel men to work for fifty cents a day.
