Thesenate then resumed consideration^of the tariff bill. Vancemoved to amend psragraph 323 oy^reducing the rate from 45 cents per pound^aud 15 per cent advaloretu to per ceut^advalorem. In the debate upon the amend^^ment Hawlev asked Vance whether there^was any nation which had any approxl-^maU ly just system of taxation, and it not,^which of the nations was the nearest.^Vance said the system of taxation which^was the nearest right, so far as he was ac^^quainted with them, was the Kngllsh sys^^tem. llawleyThat is about the answer which^1 expected to get. Vance I see what you call ^the true In-^warduess^ of your question. The ooject^is that you charge that we are in the Ku-^glish Interest; that we are following the^English system; that we are foreigners to^our own people. But there never was a^greater niece of hypocrisy than this pre-^Unse of dislike to foreigners. You only^disiike a foreigner when he brings some-^thing to sell; hut when a foreigner comes^tnmstdf to underbid American workmen^and take the bread out of his mouth, you^welcome him with open and hypocritical^embrace, llawley1 have no personal reason for^disliking Kngland or Englishmen. 1 ml*^bellevi* in t lie Kngliab s^ stem of tasatloD,^and what 1 wanted was to get one demo^^crat, it 1 could get no more, loavow frankly^the honest purpose ol that parti, that the^adoption of free trade Is the policy of that^party. Not one tune in hlly on the stump^or in the newspapers were we able In the^last campaign to get a democratic politi^^cian or editor tit tell the truth In regard to^the position of their party. An avowed^free trade meeting was held in lioaton the^other day, glorifying the campaign, glori^^fying the president of the United Mates,^glorifying every effort In behalf of tree^trade, prophesying a glorious future for it^and the great progress to be made under It.^All we ask of the other side is that thf)^shall tell the truth about the Inevitable^drift of their party, and which the whole^world knows, (Including themselves) to be^the truth, that they mean to bring the^country to the adoption of a system of^taxation that will tax only articles of uni^^versal consumption^practicably a poll tax. Vance'1'be senator from Connecticut^says 1 am a freetrader, and that the policy^of iny party Is absolute free trade, and he^bases that statement on my answer to his^question as to which foreign system ol tax^atlon 1 most admtre. I told him the Kn-^gltsh system was the nearest right, mean^Ing of all other systems but our own.^(Laughter on the republican side). 1 do^not mean by that any approval of that sys^^tem under which we live. God forbid!^The democratic party of the United Mat* m^has pronounced itself again and again in^favor of the s^ stem of taxation of foreign^imports, which will yield sufficient reve^^nues to the government, and 11 has MW^advocated any other system. That Ik the^system which 1 prefer to the Knghsh or^any other s\su-m. Reaganalso defended the party from the^charge ot being a free trade party. The^debate was continued at great length and^participated In by DaweH, Mcpherson,^Vance, Gray, Coke and Morgan. 1 he lat^^ter commented bjob the free list contained^In the substitute and argued that the repub^^lican senators who reported and sustained^It were free traders and were not Justified^In applying that term to the democrats.^The question was dually taken up and^Vance% amendment rejected. The bill^was then laid aside. On motion of Aldnch^the senate rules were so amended as to In^^clude among the persons entitled to the^privllegt H of the floor the president eh ^ t^and vice-preiideut elect After a brief ex^^ecutive session the senaU adjourned until^to morrow. 1hkloo -h.

The bill then passed^teas, 167;^nays, 84. The bill ts a senate bill and will^now go to the senate for action upon the^house amendments. Keedimmediately called up the resolu^^tion reported by him ^eiterday from the^committee on rules, ahollahing during the^remainder of the session the caJI of states^for the Introduction and reference of bills^upon the first and third (suspension) Mon^^days of each month. Anderson, Kansas,^raised a point of order that the day being^Friday, and devoted under the rules to^private business, a resolution applying as^it did to public legislation could not now^be called up. The point bavins) been over^^ruled by the speaker, Mr. Anderson raised^the question of consideration, heed con^^tended that the bouaa having yes- terday o rdered t he yeas and nays onthe demand for the previous^question, a question of consideration could^not be raised. A long and animated de^^bate of the right of the minority then en^^sued. Finally the speaker said the ques^^tion raided was an entirely new one. The^genera! rule of the house was that a ques^^tion of consideration could be raised^against any question called up. In this in^stance the tacts were that a resolution had^'^^^en reported yesterday as a matter of^privilege, Its consideration entssai upon,^aud the yeas aud nays ordered on the de-^tuaud for the previous question. The chair^auuuunced ins decision with hesitation aud^doubt, that under the circumstances a^u uestion of considers! ion could not be^made against it, and the chair decided that^the clerk call the yeas and nays on ^rder^lug the previous question, ^lhm't vote,^^shouted Anderson, and enough of his ad^^herents respected his injunction to break^the quorum, the vote standing yeas, 100;^nays. 21. Adjourned. RAILWAYMAIL SERVICE. Poitmiilar-Oflmril Dieklnton ^ Order* Con^^cerning the Imposition of Fines for Deleye. Washington,Jar.. 4.^ Postmaster Gen^^eral Dickinson toda^ promulgated a deci^^sion in the matter of imposing on railroads^hues aud deductions for failures and delays i^in earning mails. In an extraordinary^case, coming within the exceptional char^^acter of the great bli/zard of March, 1khh,^where the highest degree of vigilance Is^used to remove the cause of delays, there^should la* no tine or deduction for any de^^lay. In other and usnal cases of delay by^snows or ti.HHls the following is ordered:^For a whole day's failure and the whole of^the mail is carried through the succeeding^day, full pay: wnatsjtfeeteIfl a failure tor^two days, and the mail goes through the^third day, one da)'a pay. If there should^be a failure for four days, three^days' pay should be deducted,^aud where the failure Is longer,^teduction should he made for every day^xcept the last one ot the delay. From the^'Xperieuce of the department duriug ex^'ended contro\ersies between wcntcrn^roads and their men in the latter part of^the winter and early spring of this year, 1^do not conceive that the strife of railroad^employes can afford any excuse for a^failure to carry the mails. If a case should^ever occur of violent and unlawful oh-^^triii'hon to the movement of the mails the^government will be fully able to set It^ide. As to fines for delinquency which^results in failure to connect the rule should^be to deduct tr-mi ih ^ Hue were the de^^linquency occurred. CapitalCuMlngs.

Noth^lag was saved and there was no Insurance. NewYokk. Jan. 4.-The Evening sun^prints what it calls an almost incredible^tale of a gigantic fraud. It states the^Klectrlc Sugar Ketinery company has been^duped to the extent of over a million dol^^lars; that its whole ^secret process^ turns^out to be a humbug of the most barefaced^kind. The ^secret process^ was the In^^vention ot one Henry C. Krlend, who ap^^peared in trade about four years ago wltb^samples of wonderfully pure sugar, which^he said had been refined by his electttc^process. About a year ago he induced a^number of English and American capital^^ists to orgauixe a company and buy the se^^cret nroeess from him. This was done^and factories erected, but no one allowed^inside of them save Krlend, his wife^and a few Ignorant workmen. The rooms^where the rehulug was supposed to la*^going on were always kept securely^locked, as Krlend said his process wa not^patentable and he could not aford to allow^any one to share his secret, lu the mean^time the iitock of the company had te en^Imuuclng up until it was woilh nearly $300^per shaie of $100 oar value. Friend then^began to unload, nut suddenly died. The^officers of the compsuy suspected nothimt^wrong until a few days ago, when t h^^^^found that Mrs. Friend and all who had^been connected with the family hail dlaap^peered, Mrs. Friend leaving word that she^had gone west. The officers of the com^pany opened the secret chamber and fouud^no sugar refined there at all,merely a num^neraf machines used in breaking cubes of^augar Into smaller particles and^in granulatiug the coarser grades.^Quantities of sugar, chiefly cubes, had^been purchased by the operators and pre^^pared in sotue secret spot With a chemical^liquid which eliminated the ordinary uu^purities found In all sugars. This dttctored^sugar was then carted to the factory in bags^purporting to contalu raw sugar. The^chemical used had cryatslized the cubes U^^a large extent and when broken they bail a^finer appearance and quality than augar^was ever known to possess. The scheme^was cleverly worked to the very last. The^stockholder andoffhers of the company^were kept In perfect Ignorance as to the^future of the pntfess until the largest pos^slble amount of money was secured. Then'^is no such secret process as electrical sugar^r^ timng. aud the bugbear of the sugar^trust Is dead. Treasure) Kohertaon said to^a reporter: ^1 am heartbroken over the dis^^coveries we have made. 1 don't csre so^much about losing my own money,^but 1 Induced a number of my friends to^invest in the scheme, and it Is their^financial rule that distresses me. Then 1^had such high hopes the scheme would^bring fortune to us all. O, we've been^shamefully treated and deceived, it means^ruin to us. It Is the most outrageous thing^1 ever heard. Nthere no prospect of being able to^save an^ thing out of the wreck ^ 'Notthat 1 can see. The revelations^found in the factory prove the entire thing^to have been a fraud. Theresults of to-day's investigation of^the Klectrlc Sugar KefJuery gives ad^^ditional evidence of fraud, aud President^Cotlrell left the city tonight for the pur^^pose of procuring the arrest uf Mrs. Olive^Friend and Win. R Howard. I,onimn, Jan. 4^The sensation In Hlr-^mlngham over the revelations regarding^the Klectrlc Suiiar Refining company has^been increased by alarming cablegrams.^The local holding of the stock is stated Ui^be ^20,000.
