I^^otic ? NEW YORK. MONDAY. JULY 26, 1897.- TWELVE PAGES. PEICE THKEE CENTS. GLAD THE BILL IS LAW. GENERAL SATISFACTION OVER THK AD? JUSTMENT OF THE TARIFF. CONeTANTI.T IMPROVISO Bf PIN Ess CONDITION? I'RKDKTED-OOMMKNTS OF sKVEJtAI. WEIX-KNOWN MEN. The final passage of the Dlngley Tariff hill and Its approval by the President on Saturday cre? ated a feeling of buoyancy throughout the city y?.*t?rday which has not been known In New York since the election in 1S02. The general sen? timent with all classe* of peaple was that at last UM clouds had rolled by. and that an era of genu? ine prosperity might now be looked for with per? fect confidence. Wilbur F Wakeman. the new- Appraiser of the port of N?-w-York. has made a ?-.ireful study of the tariff question In his capacity of general secretary of the American Tariff League, a place he has held for several years. It has been his duty as an officer of the League to examine all the measure? and propositions presented to Con? gress, to analyze their probable effect upon the various sections of the Union to which they re lated more or less Intimately, and through mem? bers of Congress interested in the Industry af f-cted to bring the League's influence to bear for the proper protection of American manufactures and as a natural sequence of American labor. Mr. Wakeman has devoted a great deal of time to the Tariff bill which has now- become law, and few men probably are better qualified to ?peak of Us possible results. He was seen last evening by a reporter of The Tribune, and when asked for his opinion of what It might do for the country said: I have the fullest confidence that the Dlng |ey bill will do for us what the Republican party has promised to the country. The law to which President McKinley placed his signa tur?- yesterday is the most scientific tariff meas? ure ever drawn. It Is better than the McKinley law, under which the United States reached the highest prosperity it has known, because it has avoided the mistakes which experience developed in that law. It has been gratifying to me to watch the chancing popular sentiment In favor of a more solid and sure protection of American products. A few weeks ago the ten? dency was to cut. cut. cut. lower the duties and to follow the lines of the Wilson bill. Since the discussion of the measure in the Senate began there has been a sfong development of the American Idea and a disposition to stand by higher and safer duties. THK WOOL BCHSDULB. "Yet the Dlngley bill hns not made so high S tariff as we had In the McKinley bill, but it Is more of a protective measure. Every sub? stantial Industry and all industries that give promise of staying qualities have been looked out for. Take, for Instance, the wool schedule. No such scientific methods of arranging tariff duties in that Industry ever before appeared in a tariff bill. From first to last it is a mas terly piece of work. The same may be said of the schedules relating to flax, hemp and Jute manufactures, chemicals, earthenware and glassware and agricultural products, No pains have been spared to bring forward whatever promises an Increase of employment for Ameri? can labor. The main Idea of the bill is to make work for American working men and working women. "This !s exemplified In the gloves schedule. I* ti> ?b-'-'gned to put Do w..rk thousands of peo? ple In the State of New-York. Women's gloves are now included In the schedule, a new feature that will set a great many people at work in the OlovsrsYlUa district. "Another thing is the attention which has leen paid to Southern products. RI? e is pro? tected, as It ought to have been before, and cotton is now taken from the free list and placed under protective duties. The importa? tion of Egyptian cotton has increased within a comparatively short time from B.000,000 to 60.000,000 pounds I year. The seed fr?>m which this ? ??tton of Egypt is grown comes from this country Every three y?-ars they come over here for fresh s?<-d, and the Egyptian cotton so grown has come in competition with Amerl S ? .tton. The Dingley bill will adjust this matt. r. "' 'nly one proposition which the League, In ? ? tlon with other protection forces urged ? Congress, failed of success. it is well Known that the bill In many spots was not satis- ? f-. ? ry to American interests as it came fr?>m th?- s? nate, but only one proposition which the L? ague, in connection with other protection ' s, urired upon Congress failed of adoption. ? al'y all that was asked except the enact? ment of discriminating duties on imports carried In American bottoms was grant* d. Yet this see as strengthened so that it will prove a great Sid t?. American shipbuilders. ' ?lleve that the advantages which will re I from lliis magnlflcent measure will become apparent very soon. Indeed. It is evi?!ent that the country has already begun to reap Its ?Benefits " M t. PLATTS VIEW. Senator Platt, at the Oriental Hotel, Man? hattan Beach, said yesterday that his belief that the new Tariff bill would speedily bring pros? perity to the ?-?luntry was unimpair?-d. "We have already," he said, "abundant evidence of Its success In the renewed confidence it has in ! In business and commercial circles, and th<- number of new enterprises that are al : under way." Edward O. Leech, cashier of the National ? ? Bank, and formerly Director of the Mint, fa:d- "1 congratulate the Congress upon giving th'-ir undivided attention to the passage of the Tariff bill that became a law yesterday, and the country is t<> be congratulated as well. Even the anticipation of its passage has Improved business conditions, I have noticed lately that ? SB men have been more courageous, that Securities are stronger, and that there has been BBOre demand for money. The passage of the bill is all the more remarkable because there is not a Republican majority in the tenate. If the bill raises sufficient revenue for the expenses <.f las Government, it will Justify all the hopes that are felt for it. It Is not to be expected that it win do tins before January 1, because Of the .art-?- Importations that have been recently made h. anticipation Of its passag?-, but after that date there seems t?. he no lesson why it should not amply provide for th- expenses of the Govern? Th? prevailing sentiment among busi? ness ?men, bo far as i have had occasion to notice It, has been that the particular clauses of the bill did not matter so much if It rais? d the neces? sary l<-\ I >,ue." H race B. Fry. .-halrman of the Library Com mlti.' t|;(. union League <"iul>. said: "The : ; repeal Itself. The country has atwaya proaperoua under a priHsctlve tariff and trass ??as grown In the city streets under free trade. Win n the tariff of 1842 was remov.-d In 1Mb. unexampled hard times followed, and they were only relieved by th?- ?lis...very of fold In California, and 1 presume th?- Free Traders and Mugwumps win attribut?- our approximate pros? perity t?. the ?'lon.iyke nT'it'i ?iiscovi-riet?.

IMiKIt THE NEW TA HIKE Only ? few ships arrived h? re y?ni?rday with Imported goads Which are ?lutl.ilile under the new tariff.

He says that he started from Dover at 11:30 o'clock yesterday morn? ing, and was in the water fifteen hours. In which time he covered thirty-five miles. He leaded Bl 2:3o o'clock this morning al B point ll?r?-e miles from Capo (;r-r ?;r.z Medially left the Admiralty Pi? r at Dover In the presen-** of a crowd of onlooker? at 11-JO o'clock, Intending- to go merely for a trial swim, lie wore blue tights, on which were pinned m 111 la lure Amer? ican and English flags. A lugger, manned by two local sailors, accompanied him. MoNally's trainer, Brown, of Boston; the proprietor of B music hall at Dover und one London Journalist were also aboard the accompanying boat. The temperature of the water was f-1 degrees. McNally swam steadily at the rate of oi?e and ore half miles an hour. At s point four miles out the temperature was found to have fallen to -1J degrees, and the weather had become extremely foggy, ?0 that great care was necessary ;.. avoid getting '" the way of numerous passing steamers. Six miles out the fog lifted, and tide and wind were so suitable for a long swim that M.N'.illy an? nounced hi? determination to try to cross the Chan? nel. He had b??en heading direct for ?'alais, but a strong westward current had drifted him to a place nearly off Folkestone. There he took re? freshments, consisting ol beef ezti ici and and a long piece of American chewing tobacco, which, he says, prtvented his tongue from aw< He swam almost continually with a breast stroke, with occasional changes to a aide stroke for relief; but he never swam on his back, that, he expialna, interfering with the action of the muscle!, Ships were constantly -righted, and .?i 4 o'cloi k the Varne Lightship whs scan by the iwlmim r.

At M o'clock McNally began to show signs of ix hauatlon, but plucklly continued at his task. From this time until 2 o'clock the temperature of ihe air and Be* gradually lowered. McNally suffer.-d severely, the swelling of his hands givta* him great trouble, while from time to time h?- waa seized with cramps In his legs, neck or arms. causing a drawn, haggard look about hla face. The passages of his nose and his mouth also be? came swollen, so ?hat breathing was difficult. At 8:80 o'clock he had reached a polni within three miles of ?'ape Gris Nez. There he began to splash wildly and to swim in a circle, calling for light. It was evident to those in the boat that he was blinded by the salt water, which had gol into his eyes, and they tried t?. persuad? him to gel on hoard. He refused to give up his task, and he was forcibly draggled into the tr?at, where he Immedi? ately became unconscious.

As the clrenmstanc-s precluded the possibility of Independent reporters being taken aboard the boal for the trip, the five occupants of the ?-raft which accompanied McNally made affidavits In the pres? ence of the American Consul describing the feat. McNally quickly recovered from his exhaustion, and he crossed 10 Dover by the midday boat. To? night he looked fairly well, considering what he had gone through. He .-aid: --| discovered that the Channel la really much longer than I thought, and I found the currents to he all that Royton. Webb and others told me.

A party of Hebrews went to Woods!.)?-. Long Island, yesterday, and visited the new Mount Sinai Cemetery. From the cemetery they went to a ??mill grove not far away and began to enjoy them? selves. They had a keg of heer. While they wen (??inking a man appeared and announced hlmsi a detective. He threatened to srrest the Hebrews unless they paid him ?1 each. There we're about thirty young men and women In the party. H Hodman, one of the lea**jplS of the party, demanded that the man show his badge. Instead of doing so tbe follow ran away. A number .,f the men gave chase, and followed him a considerable distance, but did not overtake him. After the chase the festivities were resumed. They were lnterri:pt.-d hy a gang of negroes, who Invaded the grove and robbed the entire party. M, l'omrnni, of Kldg.-st., New-York, started to re? sist, and wa.? beaten. .His go.,] watch and chain and diamond stud were stolen. B. Qoldsteln was aso relieved of his watch and chain, as was Mr. Rodman, who also lives In Mdge-St, Hecki. Silv. r man. to whom Hodman Is engaged to be married, attempted to oppose the negroes, anil her hat, coat, pocket book and parasol were taken from her. J.-welry and money were taken from Others in the party. One of the Hebrews escaped from the grove and summoned Constable H. Blymer, who hurried to the grove, only to find that the negroes had de? parted, The constable, however, arrested all the male Hebrews and tock th?-m before Judge Schu? macher, Of ?eWtOWn. They were locked up in the Town Hall. Th.? authorities Justify the constable's action by ascertaining that the grove, which b longs to the cemetery company, was being made use of us a picnic ground. It Is said that the He? brews assemble there every Sunday and frequently have trouble among themselves. "SHOT BOTS WHO ASSOYED HIM. JAMKS O'DONNI-I.U A CTflCAOO HERMIT, UAH ROWt-T gaJCAPBD LTXCHIRO.

Boos, the nrVI.il reporter, and twenty soldiers selected from the four companies stationed it Kort MtsaOUla mini" up the corps. During the trip one of ihe men was sent back to Fort Mlssoula on account of not being able to keep up. The first twelve days of the trip were rainy an?l dlsatTeaabla hut good time was made, neverthe? less. It was during these days that the main ?llvlde of the mountains was crossed, as well ns the greater part of Montana. There were a few pi' isant days while the troops were In Montana. While grossing the ?'row Indian Reservation heavy rains prevailed, and the corps was stuck In the mud much of the time. All the way across Wyo? ming rain hamp.-red the progress of the company, and many hardship? arose from lack of good water. The southwestern corner of South I'.ikota was Crossed, tWO days being occupied In that Slate. The sandy roads were awful, and the prairie beatdS the road was a field of prickly (tears, making travel on the wheels careful and tiresome work. A stretch of pood but hilly road was struck after leaving Kdgemont, and the run from there to the Nebraska, line was made In short order. As soon as .Nebraska was reached new troubles confronted the corps In the shape of sand hills and heat. Prom 'he State line to Allhince the road? were f.iir, being sandy only In patches, but after Al? liance was reached and for nearly two hundred miles the sand in the road was eight and ten Inches ?Ii i p. The road was given up and the railroad was Used, ih<- men riding as much as possible, hut walk in-; the greater part of the time. While In this desolate country there was no good water to drink, and a number of the men were taken 1.1. After four days of suffering the sand hills were passed. The corps passed through Grand Island. Lincoln and Table Bock, In Nebraska, and out of that State Into Missouri on July 17. at Bulo. As S whole, the roads through Nebraska are good, but far from being level, short, steep hills being con? tinually encounter' d. The tlrst c:imp waa made at Napier. St. Joseph. Hamilton. Macon, Louisiana and St. Peter's being camping-places for the other nights. The roads across Missouri were had and hilly, and. with the exception of .-? few gravel roads, were the worst on ?i,tire trip. When away from the railroad the people w.re Inhospitable, and no trustworthy In? formation regar?! ng the roads could be gained. The heat for th- list three days of the trip was severe an?! hard on the men. The distance oo\rrci on the trip was UOt miles, th- daily average run being 32 2-3 miles. After leaving the Nebraska sandhills the average was Over sixty miles S day. The men stood the trip re? markably well Few accidents of a serious nature occurred, those that did nccur being through care? ? ?essness.

A COUPLE WHOSE MARRIAOE HAD BEEN OPPOSED ASPHYXIATED IN A WE9T CHESTER HOTEL. There Is a pathetic story surrounding the death of Patrick Sullivan and his pretty cousin, Annie Sullivan, who were overcome yesterday by gas in a little hotel in West Chester. Patrick Sullivan was one of four brothers who, with their mother, owned a farm at Unlonport and leased another farm of two hundred acres, away from t'nlonport, toward the Sound. Two of the brothers are married, and two years ago, when Patrick began to build a houae. It was generally understood that he and his cousin Annie were to be married and occupy It. The cousins had grown up together, and It was not until Patrick began to be ardent in his love making that the course of true love was Inter? rupt.-.I. The objections to the marriage of the young couple came from the father of Annie, who, It Is said, consulted S priest and was told by the lutt?-r that the Church would never sanction the marriage, because the young people were cousins. Annie's father had long been employed as a watchman at the Morris Park race track, and two of h?-r brothers were also employed there, while Annie herself often did work about the clubhouse. She cried bitterly wh??n her father told her that she could not marry Patrick, ami she and Patrick had a long talk together and afterward appeared M have sceeptad the decision and to have decided to abide by it. It was not so, however, as on Saturday last An? nie, having been allowed to take a vacation of two weeks, put on her brightest garments and, with $6 which sh?' had saved in her pocket, left her home, presumably to visit the family of one of Patrick's married brothers. She remained at the BOUM until 8 o'clock In the evening, and when she started for home, either by pn-ai rangement or ac? cident, she met Patrick. He offered to accompany her boma, and th.-y started off, laughing and chat? ting together. They stopped to rest on the way at the little hotel of Martin Hltz at (?reen-ave. and Second-st., We?: ChMter. Th.-y drank some beer and sat on the porch until 11 o'clock. Bits, besides keeping the ntS'-l, works on the electric railroad, and goes to work at midnight. Just as he was about to leave the hotel Patrick told him that he and Annie had Just bean mai rie,1. and, as the families of both ? 1 also th<- Church would not recognize the mar? riage, they had decided to leave West Chester and begin life anew in some o:her place. They wanted to s:ay at the hotel that n.ghf. but Rltz hesitated entertaining them, as he had long known of the objections of the families to the marriage, and he feared gossip. He finally rclent?'d, and the couple I w.re assigned to a little ruum off the ?llnlng-room in the far part of ::i- house. At 4 o'clock yesterday morning Mrs. Rltz thought j that she heard a n,il?e In the lower part of the house, ?md she went downstairs to investigate. The ! Bulllvans wer" -till up, an 1 Patrick was seated in the dining-room with his bead resting en nls hand, j At 7 o'clock Mrs Kitz sme.led gas, and, going to the apartmen- of the young couple, she fcund the door lucked, and sii" could not open It. She knew that the .-.'caping gas came from that rom, and quickly realising that something was wrong, she screamed f"r help, a man rushed Into tne hotel atnl broke in the dour of the Sullivan?' room. Til.- gasjel was .'.?und turned on full, and It had the appearance of having been battered with some heavy Ins-rumen: to wrench It from the wall. Annie Sullivan lay on the bed, dead. She was fully dressed. Patrick Sullivan's body was lying on the floor, and on?- hand was on the bed and clin h"d one of the bright ribbons of his dead cousin's dress. Coroner I loe her. when he viewed the bodies and had heard something Of the history of the young couple, was inclined to believe that Patrick Sulli? van had purposely turned on the gas. so that death Id end the troubles of both. Friends of the lead couple wer? Inclined to trie same opinion. The case, however, is one of mystery, thiugh It does ! not appear possible that the gas could have been i accidentally turned on, or that the wind could have - blown It out. Tne mother of Patrick Sullivan, when she hur : rl"d to the hotel to look at rh.* body of her son, wept as she kissed his cold hand. "I knew something would happen." she cried. "Last night I dreamed that he was dead." A BICYCLIST BADLY HURT. BKCAMK DIZZY AMD rSTLL FROM Hlfl WHEFn?? DOCTORS PBAR HF! WILL DIE. fjerhsrd V7.

Those appropriation bills were the S dry Civil, the Agricultural, the Indian and General Deficiency. They were introduced and passed by the House in the Identical f..m which they existed at the time of their failur? enactment into law at the preceding Congn but were amended In some important partt.ul ' by the Senate, and when they finally Does laws contained more or !?-ss new W-mslatlon interest and importance.
