WxsniMOTON, Jnly 21. Tho second ureat
tariff debate of tho Fifty-first ConKroBs was
commenced in the Senate cbambor to-day. It
is the intontlon of tho ltopubllcnn manacora
to keep this bill Bteadlly boforo the Sonata
until disposed of. Tho Democrats hnvo de
termined to make n protracted flcht nunlnst it,
and no ono knows when the end will conio.
According to tho expressed opinion of tho lto
publlcnn Senators on tho Unance Committee,
si wooks at least should be clven to tbo do
bate, which would cany It over until the first
weenie In September. The nocesslty for passing-
a tariff law is so prosblnc upon tho Repub
lican bonntors that the proposed cac rule has
boon practically lost sicht of. .Nothlnc has
been heard in the Sennte for n wook or moro of
this proposition to choke off debate, and it Is
probable that nothlnc will be beard of It until
at least four or flvo wooks havo boencivenup
to debate on tho Tariff bill.
Tbo Itopublicans aro just ns far from an
acreement on tho Fodernl Elections bill as
they woro a month nco. The radical Senators
still insist that they will pass n bill, but the
opposition is crowlnc so fast that ov on the
most onthusiastio nro bocomlnc discouraged.
Tho Committee on I'rlvllocos and Elections, ot
which Senator Hoar is Chnirman. hold pro
tracted sosslonB dnily. and they aro disscctins
the Lodco bill in tho most scleutillo manner.
Tbo friends of tho bill are ubllced to move
very slowly for fear of treachery In their own
ranks. Tho opposition of leadinc Republican
Senators to tho passaco of any election bill Is
the cause of tho Senato's action in sendinc tbo
Lodco bill to the table. Instead of to
tho Committee on l'rhllccc3 nnd Elec
tions, where It properly boloncs. Tho
manacors of tho bill will not allow It
to cet Into the hnuds of tho committee
Jiowover. for the reason that Senator Toller is j
a member of it, und. if ho cot tho opportunity, i
would be pleaded to clvo tho bill its death
blow. Thero are nine mombers of tho Com
mitteo on rriviloees and Elections, Ave of
whom are Republicans and four Democrats.
Ono of tho five is Sei ator Teller of Colorado,
and, it tbo bill were takon up in committee, he
could effectually knock it out by votincwlth
the Democrats. Chairman Hoar means to clvo
him no such opportunity, so tbo bill remains
upon tho table, while tbo committee is at
tempting to frumo a measuie that will meet
with the endorsement ,r a majority of the l.o
publican beuators. Ibe intontlon is, when
this is accomplished, if over, to enter a motion
to take the bill from tho table, when the one
procured In tho commltteo room can booilered
as a substitute. Uy this procfediuc .Mr. Tel- i
lor villi bodepiived of thechunce to make his I
opposition count. I
The commltteo had alone so-slon to-day and
enjoyed tho advice and counsel or Mr. John I.
Daveunori, who i out thoaltcrnoon colncovor
the details of tho bill with the Senators hen- i
ator bpooner, the mauueer of tbo Elections
bill, says that ns soon ns tho moasure is put i
Into proper shape it wili bo submitted to tho
Jtepublican Senators lor tbeli action. Mr. '
hpoonor rather resents tbo Idea that it
will be necessary to call n caucus be
foro the bill Is takon up in order
to m.iko tho majority support it.

or what tho nrocramme ot tbo liopubllcun
benutors for futu e uctlon is. Tho Itcpublicans
bavocotno to a sort of tenoral understundlnc
that thu Tariff bill must tlrst bo disposed of,
even it it consumos so much tlmo thnt

who Is In cbarco of tho debate, hays ho lu
tonds to koep the bill beforo the Senato con- '

opportunity tor a full discussion of tho various
sections. Whon tho bill was taken up to-day
Senator Voorhees mado the oppoainc speech,
readlnc from manuscript, and with no attempt
at oratory. Little Interest was mnnlfestod In
the question, and ltwasnotkoablethatnolthor
Senators Aldrlcn nor Gorman, the man

Democrats, was In tho chamber. Senator
Carlisle was on hand, however, takinc a seat

debate will cet lively niter a while,
especially when tho friends of Mr. Blalno bocin

I When the sucar schedulo Is ruachod there
will be soino very llvoly skirmishing between
the friends und opponents of the plan pro
posed by Hocrotsry ltlalno for reciprocity with
too South Aiuorcnn countries. It is well
known that Senator Aldrlch who Is In eharco
of tho Tariff bill, is Incliuid to admit the wis
dom of a portion of Mr, lilalno's proposition
and ready to meot tho Secretary half way in a
Plan for cIvliiBoffeot to hl btipcestlons. Mr.
Aldrlch will probably himself propnso an
nniondmout on tbo lines proposed by Mr,
lllalne. The Secretary of Stnte also has the Ad
ministration with him, and can therofuro feel
conlldent of cetllnesome sort of an amend
ment in tbo bill that will bo acceptable to him
ami the froa sucar men. It Ik said th it n com
mon ciouud bus already been found, upon
which ull can stand, and thnt an amendment
will be put Into tho bill In accordance with It,
Homo surpriso was expressed lust week when
I Senator 1'lerco proposed his amend
ment looklnc to partial reciprocity, as
it was known that ha bad not consulted
the members of tho Finnnco Commltteo before
ollerlnc bis bill. It Is now known that his
proposition was the result ot a eonierence be

a friendship with Reoios. nnd was even

Dr. John H. Souclan, who was Gen. Grant
phjslclan In his InBt lllnesi, Is an Inmate ot the i
llomo for Incurables, In Fordham, and 1b likely, )'
sooner or later, to die thero. lie Is su (ferine J
from paralysis, with which he was stricken In J
the aprlnc. His constitution was undermined tt
by his dovotlon to Gon. Grant, and his present $
condition Is but tho direct outcome of the loss M
ot health thus incurred. Tho ten months at D
Mount McGrocor. to outward view, added
twice as many years to his ace. Ilo was so
chanced as to bo scarcely recoculzable when
he returned. His balr had crayed. and he bod
become prematurely aced and feeble. Ho not
only lost his hoalth in prolonelng the life ot
his patient, but also his practice, which was, ,
comparatively speaklne. larce and luorative. i
The loss of practice was duo to the loss ot
health. HohuB been able to earn scarcely a
siocle fee since receiving the $7,500 which he
charced for his services to Gen. Grant and the
IS.Ouu lecacy left him on condition that the
General's book produced onoucb,
Tho mono j, when It was at leneth paid, was '
entiroly consumed by Dr. JJouclas In trylnc to i
recaln tbo health he had lost. After SDendlng k
soveral years in travoJllnc. to no purpose,
be returned a penniless, broken-down I
old man. Not only had the Grant money I
been spent, as It proved, uselessly, but the lit- H
tie he had been ablo to save out of an Income
wblcb. althoueh handsome was not more than !
enouch fortheueeds of his family, was alio r!
cone. Tbe small fortune which he hod inher- t
lied from bis father bad lone sinoe been lost 1
throuch the unlortunate speculations of a 1
relative. Ashe was so 111 as to put the practice r
of his profession out of the question his wife (v
endeavored to sup ort herself and her tiro k
daucbters by keepluc a boardlnc bouse at V,
ltetblehem Pa., while friends cared foi him. h
Alter his shock of paralysis he was received D
into the Frosbyterlan Hospital, whence he was m
subsequently removed to lordhnm. Mrs. n
llouclas'ii health broke down, and she Is now H
an lumate of a sanitarium. The twodaughtera 1
are wlthre.atlvos. '
All thn members of the family are thus. In a J
sense, recipients of charity. In the hope of ,
rendering them independent of the temporary ',
hospitality ot relatives nnd the casual aid ot i
friends. A. J. Iilnor, the architect at IN Broad ,
way. who Is a Ulelonc friend of Dr. Douelas, !
has cot some of tho physicians of tbe city to ',
set on foot a subsciiption. Contributions to a i
con-lderahle amount have alieady been re- S
ceived br L)r. Willard Parker, whole handling "
tbe aubsoriDtions. Dr. 1'urker's present ad- i
dresa is 11 West Feventeenth street. Dr. T. I
Galllard Thomas Is nlo ono of the physicians 9
interested. Whllo pb6lcians thus consider i
themselves bound to rescue one of their nutii- i
ber from tho straits Into which dovotlon to a I
patient plunced him the admirers of Gen. Grant 1
and tho readers of his memoirs, which owe
their completion to Dr. Douelas. may also feel
called upon to help put his family beyond the ;
