Senate Girds Up Its Loins for
Big Battle of This
Regulars and Insurgents Shake
Hands and Make Up on
Eve of Scrap.
WASHINGTON, February G. All is
in readiness for tlio big fight of the
current session, the atrugglo over tariff
reductions. Tbo senate, so to speak,
is stripped for tlfo fray and the battle
lines are drawn.
For the first limo in months thoro aro
signs that when the struggle begins in
earnest tlio insurgents and the regulars
will bo found fighting shoulder to
shoulder. The first symptoms of this
etato of affairs came with the Republican
caucus held yesterday. The meeting
was secret of course, hut nevertheless
it was learned that the insurgent
and tnc regular or standpat lenders met
with more or less hearty expressions of
harmony nnd no attempt was mado to
insist on factional lines.
For several days now protests at the
Croposcd slashing of tariff- rates, havo
een pouring into tho offices of son-
ators from all over tho country. Tho
particular form that tho fight on tho
sugar tariff is beginning to assume is
attracting a great deal of attention.
The Democrats, led by the Louisiana
delegation, threaten fo split wide over
that particular schedule and as a consequence
tho Republicans are apt to
draw closer together.
Already preparations for tho coming

"tho progressive republican organization
of Illinois to abandon La Follctto
and send a. solid delegation to tho

"By all means" tho call urges
"defeat La Folletto."

Far from being healed up and patched

been bitter complaint thnt Sheriff Jarrett

Now, as it happened, these incompetents
had been placed on tho polico
payroll to Bavo tho expense of their

weeded them out and Link hnd to

idea of a job ut no more salary with
which thero was work connected, while
even many of Link's friends .saw tho
absurdity "of expecting Forn toJlll att
office that required sotno hcadwoik.
Now tho .scheme has been Teadjnjted
