Twelve apparently p-rosperoas middle-aged nen.
ispf-osentlng cana;;! nf tha- leading houses In the
drygoods ilistii. t. had ? la.n;r conference sri! i
Senator David B. Hill In tits reception parl r ? I
?h.. Hotel Wew-Netherland yesterday afternoon.
In the Imiie that he would Indicate his probable
line of a-Mon os tbe Wilson MU sr afford som*
positive snd dlstln i expression of opinion on
the measure ss a whole. Of c ui ?? thej were
?Ussppotnted. Benni .r lilli rarely commits him?
self tu anything until the time comes to set,
and h.- did not depart from his custom yesterdfcj
Certain remarks made by him In the course of
the -Hsctiaston mlghl ha- construed Into an ex
pressii.n of tMsspproval of the bill, bul when
the conference was ended no one ? t thu twelve
ur thirtei'ii ?*? ntli m -n pres. ni was exactl* a-, t tain
aii.aiit anything
The drygoods men bod asked SVnai r HUI to
meet them in conference, an.l when ."?
had siru.k Senator lim wis prepared io listen
to all they hid to tell him. N-arly evhty o*e
present could emu lils fortune In large figures,
aila!, as mlghl i.xpected, there was a una Hi?
ntons outcry against ilia- Income tax, Some
gassmbers of the deputation aim .st shed tears In
their yshsrnenl denunciation of this clause In
Professor Wilson's measure.
On this pnlsd >Benator Hill, for a surprise, was
clear in his expression. "I realise thal the
business in.-n of this city ata' opposed !?? tli.*
Income tax," h.- said. "The hill will now, un?
questionably, be reported to the full Senate. I
assume that, the discussion will iast rats weeka
but this is sse rely conjecture. Al present l
have nothing t.> (suggest t.. business men. bul
later, before ih.* discussion i-= ended, I may
have. At present 1 am wainui,* to hear sngg"S
tions fia>m you. it is undeniable inst the men
representing the South and Wesl are In favor of
the Incorne tax. Their views, however, sre noi
rsoand, and cannaai bs defended on any logical
Then Walter Pt anton anal others pelted Sena?
tor Hill with a suing of technicalities out of
which one thing was clear: that they were almost
unanimously .apposed to the reductions on raw
materials. There seor*****}, too, to he a general
opinion thal the measure ran rather too much
to ad valorem ns against specific duties
"There ls one thing that impresses me with
considerable force," said Senator Hill, "and thal
ls that the Mil leans much on ad valorem duties.
In fact, it seems t>> m>- that the whole thing lian
been run into th" ground 1 may say her* thal
I am in favor rf. specific duties In all ca***, I \
cept when- th. nature of the article ail
renders such duties Impossible. < >f i.rsa ls
some cases an rad valorem duty is better; la
others, again, a .amii..und duty w..uld be prefer
able to either of the first tw.a. It .steins t.a nie
that the Senate committee would hav- been
wiser if it hod taken the trouble to tn l tie- testl
mony of men like yourselves, who have mastered
the subject?each In his oom departmei
trade?and thoroughly understand the technlcall
tles of the subject. Instead, they have preferred
to conduct this secret BSSSlon with only th*
opinions of Senators snd Members "f Congress
to guide them. Whan lt was suggested that the
business men in th" various Interests should ap?
pear before the committee an objection arose
that this proceeding would drag tlie revision of
the bill through the summer. Then snine of the
Senators have a number- ..f divers* Int*rests, and
so the proposition was unwisely put aside.
"What if a body of business men representing
the various intercuts affected by the bill went
I to Washington and laial their views before th??
L Whole Senate?" asked ..ne sf the company.
? "I 'hink a preferable and more effective plan
w is this," replied Senator Hill. "The rc-pies. tr.a
tlve men in different Interests should meet and
discuss the provisions of the bill in detail. They
should set forth their views In tho form of a
circular, to be sign -.1 by two or three men repre?
senting the remainder and forward a copy 'af
the circular to each of the Senators. 1 will see
that their objections and suggestiaaiis are prop?
erly laid before the Senate as a body."
With this s.-anty comfort, the drygoods impu?
tation was fa.rce.l t" be ."amen*. Asked later by
a Tribune reporter to say whether be approved
Of the Wils.n bill as a whole, Senator Hill de?
clined to express any a.pirii..n on th.- subject.
Those who t.-ok par In the conference Included

Among the jieople who paced up and doors ihe
vestibule of the Hotel N*w-Netherland last nl^ht
while Senator Hill baal his talk with lha- dry-gooda
men was a tall, thin. ila.ri 1, blue-eye** man. who Bl
Intervals tugged nervously at a thin, red mustache.
Only one or two of th.ise present ****** aware of his
Identity. He was I.ic'.iteiiant-(J..v. rner William K

tervals during the day he had tried to gel access
to the Senator. >ut each time foiled II* s. nt in
his card marked "important" to Smat.?r Hill, who
received it just as tie was talking tai the oVygood*
men about the income tax Senator Hill loohl 1 SI
