In many re spects, of a very Important character. First, the sugar schedule went over after notice was ' given by Mr. Allison, who was in charge of tho . bill in Mr. Aldricb's continued absence, of lm- portant modifications proposed by the Finance ' Committee, and with a somewhat loose under standing that It will be taken up tho first Uiing to-morrow. Tho tobacco schedule, which comes Immediately after sugar, was also allowed to stand oror. Then tbo agricultural schedule, as the next In order, was taken up, but rry little progress was made on it. The first paragraph 1215), fix ing duties on live cattle, was passed over with out action. Paragraphs '-'111 to ifJil wero agroed to after a series of attacks inado upon those re lating to barley, ram, oats, and other cereals by tho Iemocratio Senators who nre leading the fight against the bill. Tiie great struggle of the day, however, and tho Incident of rhiefest Inter est and Importame took place when one of tho most nethe of those Senators, Mr. Ilaoon of Georgia, cut adrift from his associates and pro posed the injertlon nf a new paragraph, placing it duty of 20 per cent, on raw cotton, an article ' entirely ignored both In tho Dingley bill and In the Finance Commlltce'catiiendments. A determined fight against this amendment was mode by Senators Vest. Jones (Ark.), Chil ton, and CifTery, hut Mr. Jlacon held his own against theso antagonists, sustained by the feeling that be had tbo entire ltepublican sldo of the Senate at his back, with somo Southern Democrats and all but one of tho Populists. Tho discussion was animated and was enjoyod by the Senators, who wore present In unusual numbers, and by tho galleries. When tbo olo was recorded It stood I- to 10 In favor of putting raw cotton on tbe dutiable list. All of tho ltepublican Sen. utors voting wero recordodln tbe afllruiativc, together with five Democrats and three Popu lists. Only one Populist, Kyle, of South Dakota, Toted In thonegatUc, This was the largest mo- Jorlty that the protective principle had obtained, exceeding even the overwhelming one of yester day on the question of n duty on ptno lumber, when tho volo was 31 to 20. Tlio voto to-day took the character of a completo rout of tho Democrats: and for tho rest of the day the lead ers were quiet. The rlco paragraph (2211) wss under rilstusskm when tho adjournment took place. When tho bill was taken up at noon Mr, Vest remarked that It was on open secret that his ltepublican friends had modified the utigar schedule, and said that common fairness required thov modifications to bo stated, and that sonic agreement should be made us lo when that most Important ochcdule would betaken np. Sir. Allium replied that thero were no open or other secrets tuat lie know of nbout tho sugar schedule. He announced on behalf of the ma jority thnt It proposed to modify the amendment reported by the Finance Committee, and ho would either withdraw that amendment or ask tho Senate to disagree to It. I Ic further proposed, on line 22, page (in. to substitute for tlio words "eight hundred and nctenty-tlvc onc-tbous-andih."lbii words "nInety-fH o one-hundredths." so as to leivo the duty on migar which has gone through a proi ess of roOr.ing one cent and ninoty-tltooiie-hundrcdtbsof acent per pound. He also propo.'-l to Insert a new paragraph, 2tMU, providing that tho duties on molasses, clayed, and on other sugars testing not abovrHT degrees by polarlscope. should be one-tenth of a cent per pound less than those Imposed on the preceding paragraphs on tho corresponding test of sugar. Mr. Allison added that tbe Finance Committee had not yet prepared a paragraph In relation to the sugar Imported from tho Hawaiian Inlands. Ho asked It to be understood that the sugar sec tion would be taken un to-tnormw morning. "That Is satisfactory," said Mr. Vest. At the suggestion of several Senators tho to lncco schedule went over for the present, and the agrl' ulttiral schedule "0"was taken up. Sir. Jones of Arkansas moved to strike out par agraphs 215 icattle). 21U (swine), 217 (horses and mules), and 218 (sheepl.and to substitute for them a paragraph putting a duty of 20 per cent, ad valorem on alt lire animals not special ly provided for. The amendment was defeated y ca . 22 : n a s, 3 . ' Mr. Vest, in dlscusslngthe paragraphs putting duties on breadstufTs and fnrlnaccons su In stance, characterized them as a fraud. Mr. Jones's motion to reduce tho duty on bar ley to 30 ter cent, ad valorem was defeated yeas. IT: najs, 34. The Democrats w ho voted In tho negative were Senators MoF.nery of Ijotitslana. Mitchell of Wisconsin, Itawllns of L'tuh. and Tillman of South Carolina; tbe Popu lists were Senators Allen of Nebraska, Heltfcld of Idaho, and Jones and Stewart of Nevada. Mr. Vi-u moved to make the tax on buck wheat 20 per cent, instead of 15 cents per bushel. The voto was eas, 18; nays, !M. .Mr. Vest offered similar amendments a to com or msiro and cornmeal. with like results. Senatur ltacon of itcorci moved to Insert n paragraph putting a duty of 20 per cent, on cotton. This was optioned bitterly by Mr. Vest and Mr. Jones of Arkansas Sir. McLaurln or south Carolina supported It. and Sir. lUron replied to .Mr. Vest. Sir. Herry of Arkansas asked him whether tho proposed tax would lncreasethe price of cotton in the United States. Mr. ll.uon replied thnt It would have little or no effect on the general class of cotton, but he was not prepared to say whnt effect it might have on the partlrular kind of cotton that Is imported into tho I'nttcd States. Sir. Catrery of lullna roetoput n question to Sir. llscon. but Sir. ltacon decline 1 to vleld. and told tho Senator from taiilsiana that ho would have enough to do to answer the ques tions put to him vesterday by the Senator from Slasachuctts (Sir. Hoar) on thesuearquestlon. L.tugh:cr. Sir. llacon said that he put his amendment on two proportions tlrst, that a duty of 20 per cent, was notaprotcctlveduty. and, second, that there was nothing in the nature of cotton or in the method by w hich It is produced, or In tho lo cality where it Is produced, that makes It an im proper nrtlcle for a revenue duty. Sir. Oray asked Sir. IJacon whether be was In faorof a tariff for revenue. " I am," Sir. llacon replied. but I am not In favor of a tariff for re cuue only. 1 nm not one of those who object toat.iriff because of the fact that comebody may pet a betictlt from it." "Then you do not think." Sir. Gray persisted. " that a tariff for revenue only only Is a general DomcK-ratlc doctrine 1" " I do not." Sir. llacon replied. Sir. Caffcry of Louisiana, on rising to oppose the amendment, was asked by Sir. llacon to stato his position on the sugar question, but ho declined absolutely to bo Interrupted by tho Senator from Georgia. He went on to say that be favorod a duty on sugar not because ho came from a sugar-producing State, but because of the revenue-producing qualities of such a dut. Hut he opposed a duty on cotton becauc It would yield but little revenue and would do no good whateer to the cotton growers of tho country. The debate lasted for nearlv three hours. When It closed, the I ote was tai.cn on Sir. lla con 's amendment to put a dntyof 20 percent, on raw-cotton. It was supported by the ltepub lican Senators without an exception: bv flvo lemocrHtlc Senators ltacon. Clay. Mcfcnery. SIcLaurln, and Tillman; and by three Populists Allen, Hcttfeld, and Stewart. The amend mant was adopted by a vote of yeas, 42; nays. Paragraphs 220 (macaroni). 227 (oats), and 228 (oatmeali were agreed to without question. . Paragraph 220 Irlcel gave rise to n long discus sion, and without action on it the Senate, at 5:40, adjourned. XOXISJ. TIOSS COXFM3TED. Bills IT.

The plan previ ously submitted by Capt. -Miller provided for tho cooperation of the New York, Connecticut, and Ithodc Island organUotlon In ono general en campment on Tlsher's Island, near Gardner's Hay, such as hat been conducted in previous years; but opposition to this was developed In tho New York organization on the ground that sonic of tho divisions were now entitled to n more advanced course of Instruction, such as could bo afforded on tbe modern ships of tho navj. Capt. Sillier, therefore, has suggested a plan, which the deportment will carry out, pro viding for the encampment of 200 men of tho New York organization and tho new divisions recently muttered In at Hrooklyn. at Fort Wads worth on about July lt, when they will begin a course of practical Instruction in the elementary branches of naval life, including boats under oars, ordnance work, and target practice. Admiral Slcard will be Instructed to arrange the movement of his ships so ns to reach Tomp klnsvlllent the time fixed for the exercises of the New York men. He will detail several ships of his fleet to take aboard those divisions of the organization competent to receive Instructions on modem war vessels and, with Capt. Sillier, will direct tho course to be pursued during tho week's exercises. To-day tho Judgo Advocate-General of the navy rendered a decision In which ho holds that the treaty between Great Itrltaln and this coun try limiting the number of war vessels that can be maintained on the great lakes doea not pro hibit the navy from assigning thoYantlctoduty with the Sllchlgan Naval llllltla, and if her draught is not too great to prevent her passage through tbe Wclland Canal sho probably will bo assigned to naval reserve duty on the great lakes.

His Dwelling, Known ns the "Salle" Bsutr, Was Built on m (11 rip or laind In Lrslna ton Arcane Which the Owner or tho Adjoin Ins Property Tried to Fere Ulna to AelU Joseph Richardson, tho eccentric millionaire, who jumped luto peculiar prominence some years ago by building his flre-foot-wldo "spite" house at Lexington avenue and Eighty-second street, died shortly after noon yesterday of n complica tion of diseases. Sir. Richardson, who was 83 years old, was of the samo typo ns the late Rich ard Tighe, a man who mado millions, but was practically unknown in tho community in which be lived. His was a quiet, unostentatious life, devoted entirely to the making and saving of money. Vntll ho became 111. soven weeks ago. Mr. Richardson continued to handle his busi ness, and a week after his last Illness set In he personally completed a transaction Involving half a million dollar;. In nppcarnnco Mr. Richardson was not unlike Russell Sage. Ho was tall and gaunt, and his clothes, always of the most ordinary make and material, hung from his tiody in a baggy way. Ho was tho last man any one would take for a millionaire, nnd In this be had taken a curious prldo for years. Ho liked to bo mistaken for a poor man and despised publicity of any kind. All he cared nbout was to be let alone, and tho Incident which made his existence known to more people than had ever known of It before waa a sad blow to him. This was the erection of tho now famous "spite" house. So provincial in some ways was tbe old man that It never occurred to him that this remarkable structure would attract atten tion to him. He often said that ho would rather throw away glo.OOO than see his name In tho newspapers, and. after they hnd published col umns about his home, he declared that he would never have built It had he known the result. The building of tho "spite" house ramo nbout In a peculiar way. Sirs. Richardson owned a five-foot strip of land nt the northwest corner of Lexington avenue and Eighty-second street, which was a remnant of her father's farm. About sixteen yoars ago Herman Sarner, a Third avenue clothing merchant, bought tho -i Bill ill f 75 32t tT :Ux 5il - Till. FIVE-POUT HOlTni:. property in Eighty-second street west of and ad Joining the strip owned by Sirs. Richardson. In tending to erect there a row of apartment bouses. So u to assure bis tenants plenty of light, Saroor went nround to we Rich irdon nnd offered him 91,000 for the land his wife owned. Acting for bis wife. Rlchardon de clined to sell for less than IF5.00O. Sarner re fused to giro that much, and went on with his bulldln,,'. He finally offered to glvo the t?5,000 asked for the corner, and wa3 consider ably taken buck when Richardson Informed him that ho never gave a man inor- than one opportunity to buy nnything from him. and that the strip was no longer for sale. Sarncr's flats went up, but the tenants of the eat rooms never had much use for their side windows, as Richardson nlmost immediately began work on his "spite" hous'. As It stand to-dav the house is without doubt the queerest buildinc In j New Yurk. So cleverly was It const ructed that j It waa oatilv habitable when tlnishcd, and it has j been occupied by Sir. and Sir. Richardson ercr Aincc. A dcicrintion of the building, which was printed In TlIK St X shortly after it va built, and the accompanying picture, gl 9 un excel lent Idea of w hat it is like. There are really two houie. each buili upon a lot 5 feet by 52 feet in area. '1 tic 104 feet length of the entire lot run alone Lexington avenue on the we-t side, from Elgbty-cecond street north, and extend the length of njlf the block. The houes arc of pressed brhk, with white marhlc trimmings, nnd two rows of devo rathe tiles run up tlio front. The longitudinal walls are i inches thick, and the cn walls which sustain the girders are 12 inchc thick. While the houses aro only 5 feet wide or deep, fully one-half of their lrngtli Is iucrc"ucd to a width of 10 feet by ha), which projei t from the main walls nearly at right angle. These bayi nre three In number, the central lin beln' di liticd and affording an cntranre lo either house. The front doors of tbe houc nre, therefore, do--- together. They are er narrow rtoors. and Ictui to an interior hall Ii e! li luel.e long b) il feet b Inches deep. One-halt of this hall is taken up by a semi-circular stain a), which runatothe top floor. From the hall a passage way 14 feet long and 3 feet S inches wide leads to tbo one room on each floor, which room about lb feet long by ! feet Inches wide. Is formed by the expansion of tbe xccond hav. llcyond the room another apartment. 3 feet 8 inches wide and 7 feet long, is used on the Ilrst floor as a bathroom, and on each of the three upper floors ns a closet. Thus there are in each house the falr-sled rooms, II 11 largo closets, the passageways, and the halli.. The passages and stniray occupy rather more than half the un!!ah!o space. Windows eac h house has in plenty. There arc thirty-six in each 0:1 the Ixingloti avenue side, nnd the corner linuse has four more on Eighty second street. 1'roni Lexington avenue the building lias ralher an imposing Irunt; it is when ou get around the corner Unit oil dis cover how deceit ing npjienruiice may be. Within, the liouc" are handsomely finished, and the furniture that has In on put Into them is cunningly devised to occupy the least space rosslhle. Thedlniug room i on the ilrt tloor. and In it there is a table, a sofa, a sideboard, and Several chairs, lltllll ai-ninst the wall on ono side Is an ornate mantelpiece. Tho rooms on the upper floors are bedroomj, and each con tains 11 folding lied, besidea other furniture, it Is this ndaptutlor. of the fiirniahint, 10 the con ditions thutchangus tho iippearanco of tilings. You do not notice anything cry odd, onm jou get into tbe rooms. There is perhaps a s'-nso of being cramped, but that Is principally because )ou know what a lx-llketriieture you are In. Sirs. Kichardson In un Interview with a.-'f.v reporter a year after the house was built de clared It was as comfortable as any she liadrter lived in, and that there was more mom In it than sho nnd her husband needed. Tlio only drawback, she sulci, was tlio ubscnen of lutck yards; but then, she declared, one couldn't have everything on a live-foot lot. Sir, Richardson was born in England, but came to this country when a erv uung man. Ho went Into tho contracting business, and laid tlm foundation of his fo-tnnc when ho built the waterworks nt HndgciKirt, Conn, Ho owned n controlling interest in the works nt the time of his death, and his son Ed a ml is now the super intendent of tlirni, Mr. Richardson made largo investments in railroads nnd built i)crnl email onis. On bo coming associated with Ju) Gould twcntvfho )n.irs ago he constructed p.irt of the I'nlon Pa rltlo Railroad and built large sections of the Iron Mountain nnd Mexican Central roads. Ho held largo Interests in all of iheso madsat the time of Idsdeath. He also had large holdings In tho Manhattan Elevated Railroad and the New York. New Haven and Hartford Railroad, .ind owned a Hue of steamboats running from this city to Jtridffcport. A venture which Sir. Richardson went into tome jenrs ago and in which ho made a (Treat deal of money was a patent light for uso on trains nnd steamboats. Just before his Ill ness ho began negotiations with the Govern ment to undertake tholightlngof tbo hnrbor and oilier buos malntalnm by It. Ho maintained that he could btore enough material on the buoys to keep them llghti d for mouths. During the first woek of his illness Sir. Rich ardson sold a short railroad running out of Santa Cruz, Mexico, for W0O.0O0. Hits of work of which ho waa particularly proud were tho re building of tho car stables of the Sladlson ave nue, lino In II vo days, af ler they hod been burned, and the building of tho annex to the Grand Cen tral Station. It is said that Sir. Richardson held stock In nearly all of the railroads of this country, and that ho jiosseosed passes 011 every road in this country and Canada and on all steamship lines leaving this port. Sir. Hlchardson'i fortune was estimated sev eral years ago at $20,000,000. It was impos sible to find put yesterday what disposition be made of it in bU will, but It was said that, out side of some charitable bequests, be left it all to his wife and children. He will be buried from tbe Central Park Uaptin Church on Friday morning. TUBOtTX OUT sr A. bzixd xax. Mr. Votckner! tory or nils Treotmont 07 nod of John T. SlcKnne.

A week ago last Saturday night he went to SIc Kane's houso at 413 Adclphl street, Rrooklyn, by appointment. As to his treatment he said to n reporter last night: "When I got to SIcKano's house I asked him In tho most friendly way If he would pay me. He said ho wouldn't, and then I told htm that I was a person who didn't care to bother people all tbo time about debts. I asked bun to set a time when ho thought ho could pay me. This got him angry, and, after telling me ho would show me what he could do, ho caught hold of me hy tho back and, after tearing my coat, he pitched me Into the street. I dropped my hat on tho way out, nnd when I asked him If he would be kind enough to lot mo have It he kicked It out of the hallway. I was sore when I got home, and mado up my mind not to bother with McKane any more, tint to have him ar rested.

The striking east sldo tailors made things lively yesterday forenoon and early In the after noon try pursuing the tnctlca they usually adopt at the fag- end of n strike. Whisker pulling waa started and a mob of several nundred set out to torrlfy contractors and non-union men, and suc ceeded to a (rrcat extent until tho combined In fluence of tho drenching rain In the afternoon and soveral arrests of supposed ringleaders sub dued tbclr ardor. Tho trouble was caused by a number of the strikers becoming Impatient nnd returning to work. Tills put the strikers, when they col lected together. Into n fighting mood. Karly in tho forenoon a crowd of atrikora stood around tbe headquarters of tho striking children's Jack et makers, at Essex and Broome streets, when Louis Stubcck. n contractor, of 80 Wlllctt street, appeared and was recognized as a man who em ployed non-union in on. " Look, at him! He has scabs In his shops 1" shouted a striker in Jargon. A rush was mado for Stubcck, and several pairs of hands began clutching at him. Ho dodged, nnd his assailants caught the wrong whiskers. A fight. Independent of Stubcck. be gan among tbe tailors themselves, but as Stubcck was trying to slip away all hands mado for him again. Hero tho accounts became conflicting. Somo say Stubcck drew a revolver, others that ho pre tended to draw one. At all events, he kept tho crowd at bay until the police arrived and scat tered it. Four men were arrested, charged with assaulting Stubcck. They were Louis Isaacs of !H Cannon street: Aaron Sknlkn of 135 Slonroe street. Israel Kupfermann of 75 Columbia street, and Henry Greenfield of 200 Rlxlngton street. All four were taken before Magistrate Slott In )jwi Slarkel Court, but proof of assault waa difficult. Three of the men were discharged and Greenfield was lined S5 for disorderly conduct. A commltteo of twenty-tlvo strikers organ ized 5 esterday, and, followed by a big crowd of tailors, started on a tour through the shops to see If any non-union were at work. They found twenty-live men nt work In Contractor llottcn berg's shop nt 3!)3 East Houston streets and ordered them to quit work. Tho workers w ero frightened and went out. ltottrnbcrg called a policeman and had three of the committee arreted. The rest of the com mittee went on Its self-imposed task and intimi dated twentj five non-union men who were working for Contractor Tack at 110 Attorney ttreet Into quitting work. At 275 Helanccy street the committee found a number of tailor at work on the fourth floor for two brothers named Hj man. Some of thecom- I mittce got into the shop by clambering over the I lire ecape. frightening some of tho people In the , building into the belief that there was a tire. I Slen and women began to clnmber down the 1 dark stairs, but were stopped bv member of the (ommlttcc who told them their errand. Tbe I tailors at work Joined the commltte and the shop was closed. The committee then compelled twenty non-union men at work forContractor Samuel Lewis at 277 Delanccy street to quit work. Just then rain came down in torrents. The committee quit work itself for the day on tbe understanding that It should start In again this morning. There was as much talk about guns and re volrra among the contractors yesterday as If each one had graduate 1 in the wild West ond carried shooting irons as a matter of course, Henjamln Wltkowskl, Secrctiry of the Con tractors' Association, who is the least warlike, was asked If the contractors had sought special . polieo protection. I " No," he said, "we'll protect ourselves." " How; with guns T ' "No; with crow bars and clubs If wchaeto." I Witkowski said the cause of the trouble was , a break In the strike. Twenty-five per cent, of the strikers had alread broken rank., he eaid. Sleyer Schocnfcld. the leader of the llrotber hood of Tailors, said hi men were all right. He laid tbe whole blnnio on the children's Jacket makers. Among the arrests 3 cterday was that , of a man. who. the strikers boasted, threw a piece of lemon peel at a policeman.

IT..Vr TO ELECT T1IE1II FORE3IEX. Plasterers Propose to ntrllee Aawlnsi Kmplojer Who Uon-t Aeeept Tbetr Plan. The Plain and Ornamental Operative Plaster ers' Society has adopted a unique rule which. If it 1 accepted by the employers, will alter the relations between the foremen and the men sup posed to be under them. The new rule is that the employers must nominate the men wbora they wish to be foremen, and that thee men must nppear before on examining board of the soeicty to see if they nre first-class mechanics.
