It Would Compel the House to Accept Senate liill. WAPirrN'OTOr. Aug. 11. A crisis ia the tarilf affairs was reached yester day, both in the open senate and in the secret councils of Democratic tariff couferrees. When the coher ence closed last ni-rht it was with the un lerst.mdln- that the meetings wotild be suspendod for the present. Iw time was set for reasie-abling the conferrees to-day or thereafter, and it was feit that no further sess oas m ght be necessary, in case the senate acted favorably on Senator liih'B resolution, direct ng the senate eonf rrees t report the siusauo i of alTairs. What was of more import ance was tli a feel ng expr s-.ed by toa hoa ie c .uferrees at tne close ot tiia c nferonee. t.iat in case the ll.lt res Iktion j ass ;tl and they believed it woaid the conferenee would practic a ly be relieved of .t worn., and it would remain only for the houio to accpt toe senate b 11 a-i u lesser evil, a-, tney beLeve, than the MclCiiiiey kw. These conclusions ware reached af tc?r a day of intense uxctemeu . a nung the larof leaders. The day opened with the senate ProP s.tion for freo sugar st 11 pending bei'ore the confer- ence. Chairman Wilson and his house a: soeiate were satisfied tnat the ten der of free saae was not made in pood faith, and they had, therefore, requested the senate conferrees to furn sh a poll of the senate show ing that if the proposit on were j acc p.ed it would be a lptel by the j senate an! the bill passed. The poll was con .iuered as soon as the conier- i ence convene I. It disclosed that in the event of the acc ptanco of tho j free sujur amendment the bill as a j wr.ole would be vote 1 against by tliir-ty- -i-ht iiepubliea is and by Senators Kyle, Allen and Petfer, Populists, and Catfcry and llianchar I, Democrats, a total sufficient to deieat the bill. ! This poll w;. s m .ile on the best ; judgment of the senate con lerrees. : The h ue accepted it as showing con clusively that the tender of the free Bu;';ir amen lmcn, while male in , p-t ol faith by the senate conferrees, j was a means adopted by the con- , servat.ves for the par jo.e of defeat ing t i ri fr letrislat.on anl leaving thj ; Mclvinley law in force. The discus sion brought out for tiie first ' time the statement that the tlefensivo allluaee between cer- tain members ha I proceeded further' than mutual cooperation and waa no.v reduoedto a signed agreement, j While members of the conference did 1 not cia m to have seen the agreement t.iey stated as a fact that Senators! Kvie, Aden, Pelf t. Uianchard and Caifery had re.iueed th3 ir u erstan l ia r to black and white and had s'gaed il to the elrV'ot tiiat they would vote aga.nst any b 11 w hich d d n t contain a county claue for siigii r. As Iree suyar would cliininnt' the bounty rovis on, the a'j-r-ee'inent w a regarded as show.nr that tiie five he na tors combine 1 w th the Republi cans would defeat the b.ll. Senator ll'.-iee, soeaeing of the situation la t niq-ht, said that for the first t ine he had to admit that the caance- for the bill are not CTl'd. but he b lieved that the parliamentary tangle won d be st raighie-ned so thut t .e senate V) L could be p i sed. 'Brn.si.iag a- ide all parliamentary cobwebs." h- s; ii I, "an 1 us: u com mon sense, th re is no reason way toe li. use cannot at any t :ne con jar in : the sen. ite amendments an I pass tho j b il.

It lias now been under con s'ul era tion i n con fere nee committee for over a month and further delay is absolutely inexcusable.

"iVe have deliberate 1 enough, we want act. on.

I the next sossion. anl let eoBgiV! s adjourn to give the business interests of the country a chance to recuperate froaa the present de pression. 'Congress must arouse from its lethargy and should aet in accordance with public sentiment, and not in ele Canee of it. Let us pass the tar.fi bill at once or adjourn and go home.

B US IN ESS IS IMPROVING. July Readied the Lowest Point In the X.t of tbe i ommtrcUl Tide. New York, Aug. 11. Bradstreet's says: "Evidence centimes to accu mulate that ths earlier portion of July witnessed the lowest point in the ebb of the commercial ti le, in the reaction after the moderate revival in the spring. The practical cessation of various inlastrial disturbance of tha year has emphasized the tenieney to improvement reports 1 by telegra v h from leaJing manufacturing and eonm-ercial center this week. A further indication of the tendency to improvement is saen in the week's r.dvance of 50 cents p?r tonforste.T billets, and the fact that domestic wool markets to-day are more in favor of the seller than they have been for a y'ar.anil that wo d is firm at 2 cents advance scored in tb.3 last few weeks. Iietined sugar is oae-eighth of a cent higher, possibly not directly connected with questions of deman.l an I supply, but prices of pig iron at bt. Louis ars higher and for cotton are 1 1-1(5 cents up on reports of dam age to the crop an I the improved feel ing in eomrneroiat circles south. Leaf tobacco anl leather are both firm, with an active demand, the tenden cies of pr'ces being upwarl, and the recent destruction of 1-imber by lire in C.iiea ro has stealied quotations.

Hatband. Beautiful scenery here, is it not?" asked the young- man of a solitary traveler whem he found pacing along the seashore. "Well no,' replied the stranger, T can't agree with you. I think the ocean is too small. It is no such ocean as my mother used to have." "Your mother's ocean was superior, then?" "Oh, yes. vastly superior. What tumbling breakers! Whit a mag nificent sweep of view! What ampli tude of distance! What fishing there was in my mother's ocean I" "Hat the sky is magnificent here, is it nof, sir?" "T. o low and too narrow across the top.'' replied tha stranger. "I hadn't noticed it," said the young man. "Yos," said the stranger, "it is too low aad there isn't air enough in it, either. Besides it doesn't sit plumb over the earth; it is wider from north to sooth than it is from west to east. I call it a pretty poor sky. It is no such sky as my mother used to have." "Pardon me, but did your mother have a special sky and ocean of her own ?" IVght here on old resident came up and drew the young m m adde. "Don't ta k w.th him," said tho old resident. "Ue is a hopjless tunttic. He is a man who always usul to tell his wife ab ut 'the biseuits my mother used to mak ,' 'my mother's pies,' 'iny mother's pud lings' on I 'my mother's doughnuts." Thi habit grow on him so much that ha becamsj a continued lunatic." REMOVED THE BIRO. A Wnshincton larrot 1 hat Uotliered a Preac-lier. nlf ever there was- a voluble parrot it is the accomplished African owned by Edward Cake of tha Hotel Norman die at Washington. As a linguist Washington probably never had his peer. For some reason the bird had been changed from its usual habitat and put in the linen room for the day, the windows of which are alm est in touch with the swell colored church that is in close proximity to the Noraiandie on the north. The excitement began when the minister gave out a well-known text. The last worls had but fallen from his lips when they were shouted basic at him with peculiar vehernjnie from the nd joining house. Tho congrega tion tried hard to preserve its dign ty, for the minister stool solemn, but the effort was not a great success, and many of the younger worsh p -rs tittered au libly. Tho proaeiier started up again, and again the bird sent back his utterance with tho fa'thfulness of a graplioplions. A song was trie I and Poll got in his work just the same. By this time it was evident that either that parrot had to be sup pressed or tha meeting would have to break up. A l.tt'e einferene.3 was held, and it was decided to hold up the proceedings long enough for a committee to wait on Mr. Caka and ask him to remove the cause of the trouble to some other part of his ho tel. That gentle nan willingly ac ceded ti the re juest, and tiio relig ious exercises wore resumed. FISHING WITH A BLACK3NAKS. The Ileptlln W:ts w i:o.-a ajltr and 1 on d of Hie Sport. II"re is a snake story from a li'cha anal.ml raP-r which we do not re member having seen before: A li.ir berton man who goes to church regularly was one day walk.ng aoj.ng the banks of Cone s-ion creek eat ng a sanelwich. and on account of tlie usual disparit between moat anl bread, he threw the redundant piece into the wat -r. Inve liat -ly a swarm of yellow fish babbled ronn 1 it fighting for the mouthful. The man searched his poekets for fishing tackle, bat all in vain, and he was just beginning to die of despair when his eyes lighted on a big- black Bnake. At that moment he remem bered how his father used to tell him that blacksnakes were very e.vp rt in catching fish. He, therefore, grabbed the reptile by the tail, carr.e I it to the river and held it over the struggling fish.
