When Senator Gorman of Maryland arose In
the United 8Ute Senate yesterday and told of
his experience with President Cleveland on the
compromise Tariff bill there were Democrats
who recalled the flrstmeetlng of the two men.
It waa ten year ago, almost to a day. Gov.
Cleveland had Just been nominated by the Dem
ocratto Convention at Chicago. Senator Oor
man had been made Chairman of the National
Democratla Committee. He.had never seen Mr.
Cleveland. The Maryland statesman had met
all of the great Democratla leaders In the na
tion. He was the personal friend of Daniel
Manning, who probably more tbau any single
man In New York State brought about the nom
ination of Mr. Cleveland at Chicago. Gov.
Cleveland had been formally notified of his
nomination, and the headquarter of the Na
tional Democratlo Committee had been opened
in New York city. The story that la now told of
the first meeting between Gov. Cloveland ami
Chairman Gorman was told to a Htm reporter
by Mr. Manning In the Western National nank
almost Immediately after Mr. Manning retired
from Mr. Cleveland's Cabinet as Secretarrof
the Treasury.
"I do not think I shall over forget the first
meeting of Mr, Cleveland and Mr. Gorman,"
said Mr. Manning. " We all had faith In Cleve
land's running abilities, but It was necessary to
bring Mr. Oorman and Mr. Cleveland together,
and I undertook the task. I wa then In Albany,
but In constant communication with Mr. Gor
man. Gorman, aa you know, ts a oool, suave In
dividual, and Cleveland Is like a great big pep-
per pod. Cleveland was unaccustomed to tho
ways of national statesmen, and It waa with dif
fidence one night Just after national headquar
ters had been opened In New York that
I wrote to Gorman and Invited him to come
to .Albany as my guest. I told hlra that I
wanted to Introduce to Idm Gov. Cleveland, the
candidate of the party, and I well recollect that
In my letter I said to Gorman that he would
meet rather a ' heady' individual. Well, Gor
man came up to Albany two or three nights af.
terward, and I took him around to see Cleve
land. Cleveland was bluff and hearty, and
Gorman waa aa cordial a his cool nature would
allow. They began to talk aa to the plan of
campaign. Gorman said very politely:
" Governor, I have come to see you to ascer
tain your wishes about tha conduct of the cam
paign.' "TOh. bosh,' said the Governor, ' I know noth
ing of those matter. Run It to suit yourself.
You know about affair of this kind. Do a you
think proper.'
"Do yon really mean that, Governor r re
plied Mr, Gorman. ' Am I to use my own Judg
ment and follow my own discretion r
Why, certainly,' said the Governor. 'Why
not? I don't know anything about such thing.'
'"Do you really mean what you aay, Gover
nor.' again Inquired Gorman.
I!. Vl"'- certainly,' said th Oovernor.
. "'All right.' aay Gorman, and the next morn
log he went back to New York.
"Two or three week after thl meeting It
came to my knowledge that Gov. Cleveland had
written a document bearing on the campaign.
I cannot tell you. for certain reasons, what that
document was, but I believed It would have an
Important Influence, and not a very good one at
that. So I wired to Gorman, asking him to
come Immediately to Albany. He came on a
fast train and met me. and I told him of the
content of the campaign document that Gov.
Cleveland had written, lie was astounded, and
be hurried up to see the Governor. At that con.
venation Gorman asked the Oovernor the na
ture of the document, reminding blm pleasantlr
at the time of hi former words, that he, Gor
man, was to run the campaign. Gorman added
tliat If the document was or any Importance U
would do no harm to submit It to the Chairman
of the National Committee.
"All right,' says Cleveland, and he handed
out the document, saying! Whatdo you think
of that. Gorman V
"Gorman read the document over very care
fully, and then, without a word, he flung it Into
the grate, saying: 'That's what 1 think of that
"It was a little chilly in Albany that night,
and there was a lire tn the grate, aud the docu
ment began to burn. Cleveland Jumped out of
his chair and hopped up and down in his anger,
shouting: 'No man alive can bum any docu
ment of mine. Whntdoynumenn, sir I'
" v hy,.Governor,' wild Gorman, as coolly a
you please, 'you said that I was to run thlsrnm-
Salgn according to my own discretion. The
ocumrnt that I have Just thrown Into the fire
Is about as unwlso a manuscript as ever came
under my notice.'
"Cleveland meantime was tramping about In
his rage, but Gorman was aa cool as an Iceberg,
finally Cleveland began to lauch at himself.
He remembered his remarks to Gorman on the
first interview, and the two men parted friends,
hut not until Cleveland had told Gorman that
hi was tho coolest son of 'a gun he had ever met."
If Senator Gorman could ha e got hold of the
letter Mr. Cleveland M-nt to Prof. Wllon. ho
might havo found a fire somewhere in Wash
ington, even in July.

which Is on the other side of tne lake, eight
miles up. On Sunday the men are reported to
have been intoxicated, and from the presence
of a whiskey imttle, nearly empty, when tho

have caused the accident.
Tho party was passed by ono of the lake

They had reached a point tH miles up the lake

occurred by which all were thrown Into the

dairyman, and had Just returned from his milk

farm to fix the shoe. As Ilutterworth and his

the storm came on. Tho darkness wns so great
that Ilutterworth led the l.orsu outside to see

Washing ros. July 23.-8mator Gorman'
speech to-day arraigning the President of the
United States for writing Ids letter nttacklnr
the Democrats nf the United Slates tinato who
are opposing his tariff policy wa one of the
most remarkable eneeche over delivered in
Congress. Something of a sensation wa ex.
pectod when tho Maryland Senator, tho politi
cal manager of his party tn the Senate, should
take tho floor to rescut the Insults heaped upon
him and his party c ill cogues by Mr, Cleveland,
but the public was not prepared for the
frank languago and thorough exposure of party
secrets that developed during the long and
Intensely dramatlo speech. An hour or two
before Mr. Gorman took tho floor he railed upon
President Cleveland at the White House, aud
the knowledge that these two gladiators 111 the
great political struggle now In progress had
been closeted together added to the general ex
citement at the Capitol, and Increased the sus
pense and expectancy with regard to the politi
cal storm that was about to break. Even those
who have known the Maryland Senator Inti
mately for many years were surprised at the
frankness of his utterance and at the apparent
eagerness with which he flung down the gago
of battle to the Presldont, and created a breach
between them that never can be healed.
There are many rumor afloat relative to the
Whlto Houto Interview, but the truth 1 that
the President sent for Mr. Oorman to make
known to him his great anxiety to restore har
mony w ithln the party ranks, and to request hi
assistance In bringing to a satisfactory conclu
sion tha tariff fight which his letter pre
cipitated. The conversation was somewhat
trained, but entirely amicable on both side.
The President did not beseech Mr. Gorman
not to make hi contemplated speech, and the
Senator did not respond in theatrical tones that
ho would do as he pleased. He did tell the Pres
ident frankly, however, that harmony can only
bo restored by the apuedy adoption of the Senate
amendments by the conferenoo committee.
The consultation bore no fruit, a was shown by
the Senator's utterance In the Senate shortly
af lerw ard, and there la absolutely no prospect of
the abandonment of the Senate bill.
The publlo will get a bettor and more acourate
knowledge of the Maryland Senator through
the speech which he delivered to-day, and those
who have looked upon him u a mere politician,
shrewd and over-covert in hi methods, will be
led to believe that they have not done him Jus
tice, and that his abilities aa a political man
ager, a public orator, and legiilator entitle him
to rank with the very best men of either party.
Ills speech made a most profound impression
on both sides of the chamber and added to the
general belief that all prospects of harmonlxlng
the differences between the two Houses on the
Tariff bill is lost, and that either the House must
agree to the Sonata amendments or no Tariff bill
will bo passed.
The scene In the Senate chamber during the
two hours and a half that Mr. Gorman occupied
the floor was Interesting and dramatlo. Senator
Harris was In the chair for an hour or so early
In the day, but he afterward gave up the gavel
to Senator Faulkner, who faced a crowd which
tested the capacity of the floor and the gallerle
to the utmost. Every Senator waa In his seat,
and practically all the members of the House
were crowded Into the spaces In the aisles and
the rear of tho Senator's desk. Literally
peaking all tho House had come over to the
Senate because Speaker Crisp waa unable to
keep a quorum after the Maryland Senator had
taken the floor, and tho House was, therefore,
compelled to adjourn. This action Is most un
usual, and It has been several years since a Sen
ator has mode a speech of such interest and Im
portance as to crowd the Senate floor as It w us
crowded to-day. Kx-bpeaker Heed sat on tho
Republican aide, enjo)lngwlth his party friends
the political sensation in which they hail no
shnrn except as spectators, and all of the promi
nent members of tho House of both parties
were among the groups that stood wedged into
every available nook and corner. Upstairs, In
tho great galleries, tho crowd was almost be
yond the power of the officials to control. Every
Inch of space was occupied, and from each one
of the many doors caUnded a long line of
American citizens of both sexes and all ages
waiting to take sdvantago of the Infrequent
exit of thoso unable to endure the heat and dls.
comforts of the crowded seals within. Even the
diplomatic gallery wns iccuplrd, 1'hlcflv, how
ever, with thewlvr nul families of Senators.

with a group of ladles throughout the sjierch.

ueiss wl.l Ii he has borne all summer, and which
threatened at several points In hi speech
to entirely exhaust hlin and cause him
to take his seat. Th Pinator's dis
tress wo plain, apparent to his great
audience, who t)nl thUol with him In his
struggle to disguise it. Several times during
the course of his speech the gullerlt s broke into
applause, which wus at o ee checked ty the
severe rebuke of the presiding officer and the
perfunctory threat to clear the galleries if
further marks of approvalcr disapproval were
heard. Not a Senator lift the chamber ilurinj
tho rnllre. speech, but ail oat with raptutleuUm
and tha nods of cppruval. and serious, thought
ful faces of all, proved conclusively that the
Democratic beuators, utmost without excep
tion, were In dcao suipalh with the Mary,
laud Senator. '1 hose who did not publicly en.
done his statements approved of them In pri
vate conv ersation, and gave ridenee that the
Pemocru.io Senators who f raixd the pending
Senate bill will remain loyal to it and to Sen
ator Gorman to the end.
Aslalwathe rase when the Senate charu.
ber is crowded In warm weather, the heat be
came to oppressive and the air so close as to be
almost unbearable, and although to-day there
wa no sun tu shine through tho glass celling
down on the head ot the senator tLelr per
sona! discomfort was great enough without It,
Seiottor Gorman, of course, suffered more than
any of the others. Owing to the rainy weather
of the past day ortwo he clad In heavier
garments than usual, and throughout hi
sp.-ech h leaned upon th desk be
hind him, mopped hi forehead, too); repeated
slpaof water and Irtuon Jutee, nrd otherwlo
thowe.l the weakness of bis condition. At one
point during the most serious part of his speech
an official brought In a glass ot something that
looked very mach llko "cold tea," but, with a
deprecating wavo of his arm anil n character
istic Uormrn smite, the Seuator waved It away,
raying that water was good enough for him.
Although every word that foil f nun Mr. Gor
man's Up was listened to with close attention
by all of his vast audience, thero wero portions
of It that created the moet profouiul s'irprisc,
which waa shown by the stillness In tho clnim
lier and the grave faces nf tho Senators. His
story of the unwritten history of tho conven
tions that nominated and renominated Grovcr
Clevelaud for the Presidency and his accounts
nf the campaigns wherein he and othtr
Senator who ant around him gave Clcvclind
ehecrfully and willingly thnlr llmo unel money
and lo) ally were exceeded In dramatlo Intel est
only by his graphlo recital of tho history of tho
pirsent Tariff bill, and the details of Its progress
through the two Houses and Into the confer
ence committee, where It Is pending to-day. In
these chapters of his great speech Senator Oor
man unveiled the secrets of the Dcmocrntia
party with a fearlessness that was astonishing,
and which could only have been p-oniptcd
by the passionate Indignation v ith which
he and his Democratlo colleagues re
sent the President's attack upon them.
Ho kept nothing back, but hardled the
President without gloves, and from the begin,
nlng to tho end of hi speech railed things by
their right name. Mr. Gorman husbevn all dor
ring his political Ufa oeentIally a compromiser,
and his political enemies hav e loved to accuse
him of the habit of working In tho dark, and ot
nhcrlehlng at all times a desire to conceal from
his right hand what his left hand was dnlng.
Since Cleveland's first election, moreover, Mr.
Oorman has been reckoned among his
enemies, although he has been charged
with cowardice In pretending to bo his
friend. Ho left no doubt remaining ti-day
of where he stands. He burned all his bridge
behind him. and will now stand forth tho open,
avowed, and bitter enemy of Graver Cloveland.
Some of the charges which he made against the
President' truthfulness and gratitude were un
usually surprising as coming from the lips of a
man so closely associated with him In both the
polltleal campaigns in which he was n candi
date, and his referenoa to the slime and tilth
through which the Democratla organization
waa compelled to wado In the first Cleveland
campaign fell like a thunderbolt upon the aston
ished audience. Mr. Gorman's dramatlo an
nouncement thai he waa not Cleveland's debtor,
and Intimating that Cleveland owed much to
him, produced a like sensation.
The shrewdness of Mr. Gorman's tactic In
debate was shown by his action In calling upon
the members of the Finance Committee to glvo
evidence In support of his statement that the
President and Secretary Carlisle had both been
entirely conversant with thenature and scope of
the Senate amendments to the Tariff bill, and
that they had approved of them aa a com
promise made necessary to pass any bill. Each
Senator In his turn was a little more emphatlo
In endorsing Mr. Oorman's statements than his
colleagues, and the climax came when Senator
Harris, the President pro tempore of the
Senate, In that deliberate, convincing manner so
character! tio nf him, said that tho President
bad, in conversation with him, not only when
the bill was before the Finance Committee, but
after It was la the Senate, with taxed coal and
Iron provided for, more than pne expressed hi
approval of thu efforts of tho Senate to frame a
bill that' cou$V receive th vote of forty-three
Democratlo Senators.
One of the iron rest points in th Senator'
speech, aa far a hi defence ot the Benato
amendments is concerned, wa hi detailed ex
planation of the scheme by which a Canadian
corporation Is endeavoring to monopolize the
Eastern coal market of the United States by
means ot a removal of the duty on bituminous
ooaL For the first time during the long tariff
debate this subject wa discussed by one who
ho knowledge of the motive that leads
certain so-called protection Democrat to
advocate free coal, and Senator Gorman
pointed out that no one In the United States
would be benefited by a removal cf the duty.
The only beneficiaries, be said, would be the
Canadian corporation which aims to establish
the greatest of all combinations known a
trusts, and from which the Democrat In
Congress are now attempting to free
the people. What Mr. Gorman did not
say, but what every one nf hi auditors
thoroughly understood, was that the Americans
most deeply Interested in the removal of the
duty on coal Is the Boston corporation whose
money Is Invested In the Canadian syndicate.
When Mr. Gorman's speech was concluded tho
vast audience drew a loug breath, as If thankful
to be relieved of the suspense under which they
hod been held, and the Senator sat still, looking
into each other's fares with amazement. Only
threo Senators -Messrs. Gibson, Drier, and Mur
physhook Mr. Oorman's hand In congratula
tion, but this was due altogether to the excite
ment ot the moment, as It was the universal
opinion thai Mr. Oorman hod made tho greatest
effort of his life and vindicated the honor of the
Senate from the attack ot the President.
The situation w ith regard to the Tariff bill ha
not changed as the result of Mr. Gorman's
speech, except that It has made more certain the
Impossibility of defeating the Senate amend
ments. Whether the bill Itself w III be defeated
Is not now certain. Wl.jn Senator Aldrfch,
the llepubllcan leader, was asked after the da 'a
proceedings If the death of tho bill waa us.
surcd he said:
"It seems so; but yet there Is a possibility that
the Uouse will yield. The Senate will not; but
this Tariff bill seems to havu nine lives, like a
rat, and seems possessed ot the most astonish
ing vitality."
Senator Vilas Is expected to take the
floor to-morrow In the Preslden's defence. He
made eoplouv memoranda during Mr. Gorman's
speech, but was n t ready to reply to hlintj -day;
aud so the Senate, after Senator hits of fail
