THE STORM BROKE.
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.

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. W. Rogers, Sylvester Keleher, et ah,
defendants.
The issuance of the injunction by the
United States court is admitted and
after a recital of the aims and purposes
of the A. li. U., the petition goes on to
say:
They deny that it was at any time the
purpose and object of said American
Railway union or the officers or direc
tors thereof, or of these defendants or
either or any of them, to con
centrate the power and jurisdic
tion of Baid American Railway
union under one official manage
ment and direction with power to order
strikes or a discontinuance of the ser
vice of such employes at any time the
board of directors or the American Rail
way Union should elect so as to, as al
leged in said information or otherwise,
and they allege that by the organization
of the said American Railway Union,
strikes could only be declared or discon
tinued by the vote of a majority of the
members of such American Railway
Union employes in the service affected
by any such strike, and that the only
power, authority or office of the said of
ficers or directors of said Americau Rail
way Union or of thee defendants or

tion did for themselves, without
any order, direction or control of
the said American Railway union,
cr of ils officer?, or directors,
or of these defendants or either of them,
voluntarily determine by their votes
that they would strike or leave the ser
vice of said railway companies, and that

vice of said railway companies freely and
voluntarily of their own accord, without
an? order, direction or control on the
part of said American Railway union, its
officers or directors, or of these defend
ants or any of them.
Upon this information and belief the
defendants deny that said employes so
leaving the service of said railway com

of hindering, preventing and delaying
said railroad companies in the operation
of trains engaged in the transportation
of the United States mails and inter
state commerce over the respective

counseled every one to stand tirui.
They deny that any other telegrams
similar in form and character to those in
said information sent out were Kent by
the defendant Debs, or any of tho de
fendants, with the, knowledge, authority
or approval of any of said other defend
ants at any time after the service of said
writ of injunction upon said defendants
and deny that any employes of any rail
way companies named in said injunc
tion were induced by reason of any tele
gram sent or caused to be sent by the
defendants, or any of them, by threats,
intimidation, force or violence to leave
the service of said railway companies, or
that the transportation of the United
States mails and insterstato commerce
were thereby in any way hindred, or de
layed or prevented.
Defendants expressly deny that they

The answer makes other sweejdngand
more specific denials of the charges, and
concludes :
"The defendants further allege that
after the service of said injunction upon
them they forthwith consulted competent
couusel, learned in the law and duly au
thorized and licensed to practice as at
torney and e-musellor-at-law in the courts
of the United States, and fully and fairly
stated to him all the facts in the prem
ises, and exhibited to him the order of
the court made therein, and were advised
by him as to what they might rightfully
and lawfully do in the premises with
out violation of the order of tho court or
contempt of its authority and that they
have since that time in all things ord
ered their acts and conduct in regard to
said strike and tho persons engaged
therein in strict accordance with the ad
vice of said attorney so by them consult
ed and the said defendants each for him
self, denies that he intended iu any way
to violate the injunction of this court or
to act in defiance or contempt of its au

Denver, Cola, July 23. In a public
speech last night Governor Waitesaid:
"President Cleveland and ex-President
Harrison agree that no demand from the
governor of a state is necessary, but that
the president of the United States, upon
a request from his own officers, and him
self the judge as to the existing emer

tary of the United States. 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

interruption of commerce would apply
equally to a factory, and that manufac
