on the battleships, If necessary, for with Congress
about to adjourn, with an arbitration treaty with
Orfat Britain awaiting ratification, with tbe Cuban
question out of the way, nnd with Julio gattguBy on
his way to the Senate to see his sympathizers.
there was no necessity f>>r baste.
"The contractors refuse to tell the cost of manu?
facturing armor." said Mr. Elklr.s. "and. there?
fore, cays?th?? Senator from Kew-Hampehtre (Mr.
Chandler), we arili pay tSW a ton. Therefore, says
the Committee on Appropriations, we will pay BJBJ
? ton; and the Senator from Maryland (Mr. (.or
man) says Amen; we will pay $100 a ton'; while
wo who furnish the votes have to follow them
Mr. Tillman (Dem., S. C.) said that while he
was a member of the Committee on Naval Af?
fairs he was unable, to ?Ive Mr. Rlkins all the
light he desimi. TV t he knew there was no ex?
penditure "so reeking with fraud and so dlsgracc
ful to those responsible for !t." Us said the In?
vestigation Into the cost of making armor had
shown that the amount heretofore paid to the
Bethlehem Steel Works for armor had paid forche
establishment of the plant twice ov-r. and virtually
made a present of It to the company. He further
asserted that the two armor-ma kin?? plants In the
country, the Bethlehem and Cnrnrgle plants, in
stead of competing, were In collusion to keep up
the prtco of armor pinte
The mere suggestion that the Government should
go Into th? business of manufacturing armor was
sure to rajse the spectre of Government ownership
?4 railroads nnd like concerns. People spoke of
Congress controlling the trusts, but Instead of this
"the trusts had their -.hands In our bCSSChSB pock?
ets." He disliked to think thai these monopolies
had their paid agents In the Sennte. but It looked
like It. "I don't want to ?ay any?;,ing harsh," he
went on. Impressively, "but Qod knows that I be?
lieve every utterance I have ma.le IS true."
This atatement came like a bombshell In the Sci
aie, and lesi Mr. Hawley to demand whether the
Senator from South Carolina dared 10 make such a
charge against the Senate.
"I dare *ny." replied Mr. Tillman. deliberately
"that as fuT a* I can see, an?l 1 can explain this M
no other ground."
"And I say." retorted Mr. Hawley. "that that is
an UBWmthy slander, unworthy of any gentleman."
"I am b-und to put two and two together. I can?
not explain It on any other hypothesis," said Mr.
He went on t?> say' that the companies got their
pi 1res ''because they have friends In this cham?
ber ' He spoke of the examination made Into th.?
armor furnished by Carnegie some years ago. when
It was shown that the blowholes wire plugged up,
the Government stamp misused, nini the plates Im?
properly temnered, and the gecretary of the Navy.
through som?i- "hocus poens." fined Mr. Carnegie
for furnishing defective plates, while "our Illus?
trious President, who, God be praised, goes out of
power in three day* more, remitted this fine." It
was scandalous that our boasted Navy, "our pet."
should be protected bv these "sponge" platea The
first ehot from a foreign Warship would go through
one of these boasted ahlps, and Oft? or 100 Ameri?
can seam?'ti ar?? gent to th? bottom of the s?-a
through tie frauds perpetrated In th?? S-nat??."
Rath.r than pay any mer?? money to these armor
barons he wouJd build a Government factory for
the manufacture of armor, even If It cost fgOO or
BJM a ton. for tben???here would ?t bast be the con?
solation of khowRig that the hi mot was good and
the mon? y was distribu???'! .-itnontr the worklngmen
In ansv.or lo a question from Mr. Quay, Mr. ???
man said that nothing wuM be gained by sending
th? bill back to the Hftus,?. f,.r that body WSS In
the power of the trusts?the Standard (?il t'olir,'.in)
?as much es th?? Berate, "and every man ther.
was maaaded and under th?> rul?? of one man. the
Speaker, .nul Compelled to crawl around on their
bellies like ? worm or like ? whipped cur."
Mr. (juay (?? ;>,. Pean.) moved to lay on the table
the motion to reduco th?.? maximum cost of armor
from W*i to MOO ? ton. but this motion was beaten.
Yeas, 12: nays. 3?.
Mr. ('handler. In a final explanation of his am??n?l
ment, said there was no such thing as competition
In the manufacture of armor plate either In this
country or In Europe, an?] that the Bethlehem and
Carnegie plants were members of nn International
His amendment was then adopted without divi?
sion, and the total amount appropriated for armor
was reduced from ttJflO.OOO to $2.+i7..Vm.
The committee amendment appropriating tl.000?XV>
for ? Government armor plant was defeated bv a
vote of 2G to 30. ,
The bill-was th>n passed, nnd at midnight tho
Berate a?iJourned until to-morrow.

Washington. March 1 (Special).- The amen Im.nt
to th?? Sundry Civil hill adopted late lnst night by
the Senate, which seek?? to annul the recent procla?
mations of President Cleveland setting aside some
HjMMB* acres of Western forest binds a* public
forest reservations, was formally disagreed to this
afternoon by the House of RopTOScntatiVoa along
with all the other BetaM arm n Jm? tits, and a ?? in?
ference between t:?.?? two houses on all the changes
made in the Sundry Civil bill Is now pending. The
amendment which was offered by Mr. Clark, of
Wyoming, was evidently drawn In haste and without
due consideration, for it fails to Include In its pro?
visions the two new reservations established in the
State of California?the Stanislaus Reservation, with
B*S***J acres, and the San Jacinto Reservation, with
737.2*10 acres. That Mr. Clark thought he was revok?
ing all the proclamations of Monday last when he
brought forward his amendment, is mad?? phuri from
the following COllOguy which occurred last night:

Washington, Match I ?sSOrstBIT Herhert was
one of the happiest men In Washington to-day. At
9:30 o'clock this morning he was met at the Navy
Van! hy a number of friend?. Includine: memi.ers
of the House and Senate Kastei ?.'omrnlttoes, for a
trial trip down the I'otorna. on hoard the famous
little torpedo-boat No. ?. the Farragnt. The day
was what seamen call giajr, and a brisk BOUthBOBl
wind was blowing. No time was lost In casting
loose, and the signal was given before 10 o'clock.
A run down ihe river of about eight miles below
Alexandrie or slUteen miles one way was made.
The landsmen on the downward trip had to seek
?heiter behind tbe smokestacks, so (rrent was lh,?
pressure of the wind when the boiler.? were all put
to work. Th?? link? vis.sel carriel a distinguished
compnny, Including the Herreshoff?, her construc?

anil Mr. Wll? hi. who Is to BUCceSd Secretar.? .Mill?
ion in the Department of Agriculture. Chairman
Bouteiie, of the House Naval Committee, was In
tho party, ami expressed himself as delighted with
the trip, .'is did also Senator I'duckhurii and others.
The Ffirrngut, although not pressed to her utmost
speed, succeeded In breaking Der record, making on
one spurt a speed equa! to thlrtv knot?", or between
thirty-two and thirty-three miles an hour. Much
eninusiasm over the achievement was shown by
the inviteli guasta and Secretar? Herbert und Mr.
Herreshoff were heartily oongnitulat.il on the port
they played In producing for the United States
Navy whal ?? believed to be the faatest torpedo
boat nfloat. The vessel returned to the Navy YarJ
? tSW minutes b? fore II o'clock, the trip having o?'
cupleil a little, moro than an hour.
A SETTI.EMKNT WITH SIAM- Slam has finally

satisfaction on account of the Kellett affair. Thin
is announced In a cable dispatch to tho State De
partni.-nt from Minister Itnrr-tt nt Ilntickok, who.
however, sends no ?1? tails. The Cheek claim, which
hn? been rigorously pressed for some lime, grew
out of Or. ? heek'fl teekwodd concession, srhlch
Slam resisted, I.ut which will now be adjudicated
by an Impartial tribunal. In ?he case of Mr. Kel

IUEPORT <)N THE DUPONT f'ASE.-Thf? belated
r. port on the Dupont cals was submitted to the
S. naie this afiernoon. It recites the facts of the
election held in Delaware for I'nlted States Senator
on May ft, iv'??"?. when tisi Speaker of the Senate,
acting as Qovernpr by reason of the death of the
Qovern?r of the S'atp. voted at the election for
G?,ted States Senator. Th?? only question in the
I SSO was ms- to th?? legality of the vote of the net ing
Qovernor. if he was entitled to vot?? Dupont was not
elected; if the aiding Governor was not entitled to
vot??, Dupont then has a majority of 1 vote. Tho
committee reported in favor of seating Dupont, but
th?? Senat, voted the reverse. Mr. Dupont now SO?III
to reopen the case on the ground that th?? vote in
the Senate was unfair on account of ? mlstak? in
pairing Senators The committee lirais that no such
mlstak?? occurred 'Die majority of the committee,
the repon snys, hohls now as It did when it made its
report, thst the senate scted wrongly In refusing
to award the seat to Mr. Dupont, but the committee
takes th?? ground that the Sitiate, sitting as a high
court on the (juallllcatlons of its own members, has
decided the CSSe, and 00 BSW information having
been d^cOvered there Is no good reason why it
