ate M-ry anxious about tin condition
of "Sir H.iyurd," us he is popularly
known, as they are afraid that they
will never Ret another employer who Is
V. genial anil open handed.
.Mr. Hrown has not landed from the
yacht for weeks. The townsfolk of
Hi lghlllngsea, who are Rrateful for his
benefactions, are equally perturbed over
Ills serious physical condition.
At the m'outh of the little Colne. a
river that a Texan would call a creek,
off the snuat village of Hrlghtllngsea
swings at anchor the yacht Valfreya,
and has swung there while the tides of
twentv years have splashed around her
McKvers Hayard Hrown Is the son of
the late Alexander Speers Hrown and
grandson of Hubert Haynrd. He Is a
cousin of H. Fulton Cutting nnd was
prominent in New York society. One
day he suddenly decided to go cruising,
built himself the splendid Valfreya and
started off to circle the globe. On this
cruise he developed the Idiosyncrasies
that his friends had never dreamed were
part of his makeup and that made his
actions matters for worldwldo go'.slp.
one of tile most marked of the rlt.ii
man's eccentricities was to douse his
crew with water. They were In Sweden
the first time he did thin, pouring bucket
after bucket of Ice cold water on the
itnsuspwtlnsc member. of the crew. A
soon as they anchored off Hrtghtllngsen,
never to tnjr up the anchor aciln th'.
yacht owner hired a new crew. He took
on forty-thr". men, n tremendous num
ber for even so large a yacht as the
Valfreya, and stipulated that they should
take all punishment for Insubordination
cheerfully. The men .signed up will
Ingly enut'jh, for the p.iv was large,
but tli.-v didn't know what was In store
for them.
Mr Hrown had a large squirt gun
made. Armed with this the very first
nUht he stole Into the forecastle and
into iti" astoiiisiieii ear or one or . ne new
'' - shot a stinging charge of water.

The Valfreya has a large library, and
there he would sit reading and looking
out nt the quaint housetops of Hrlght
llngse.i across the water.
Of courxe discharged sailors told In
every public house of the strange doings
of this hermit from overseas. He would
Invite the members of the crew In to
have ale with him and when they stood
up wiping their mouths on the backs of
their hands h would light Into them
with a cudgel and heat them until they
were black and blue
In spite of all this, however. Mr.
Hrown has established a reputation as n
philanthropist and he Is Just ns ecceu
trie In his dimities as In anything els-.
The boatmen of Hrlglilllngsea have
made much money taking out visitors
to the Vnlfreya. Mr. Hrown shouts at
them to keep off, but the wise hang
nroiiml until rough weather comes and
then the Valfreya's owner takes pity on
the little boats mid lets down gang
planks for their occupants. Then the
widow from t'olchester who has lost her
cow sobs out her story and ilr. Hrown
sends her away with monev for n new
one, or sends her awny with a tongue
lushing, as the case may b". He gave
new parks to Colchester and Hrlghtllng
sea and kept libraries of the Kssex coast
well stocked with good books

Washington, May 13,-The Demo
crats are going to have a tight squeezo
In carrying the present tariff pro
gramme through tin Senate. Again to.
day they were nfrnld to risk a vote on
the proposition to dispense with hear
ings on the bill nnd wen obliged to
ndjourn without nny progress having
been made.
The matter came up shortly after tho
Senate met nt 'J o'clock nnd for two
hours there was a debate ln which
party lines were drawn sharply. Final
ly the Democrats put an end to tho
colloquy by moving for nn executive
The claims which the Democratlo
leaders had been making of Republican
support in opposition to public hear
ings fell flut and the Democratic op
position to Chnlrman Slmmons's plan
for referring the bill without Instruc
tions for public hearings wns so great
thnt the Democrats feared a test of
Mr. Simmons held the floor for nearly
two hours. He renewed his motion for
n reference to the Finance Committee,
and Immediately Senator Penrose
offered an amendment Instructing the
committee to grant hearings. Hcfnn
the debate ended Senator La Follettn
come fo.-ward with a modification of
Senator Penrose's amendment.
Senator La Follette's motion directed
tho Finance Committee to propound to
all persons who sought hearings six
teen questions to bo answered under
oath intended to elicit Information as
to the particular Industry Involved, rn
cost of production nt homo and ahrr.nd.
the amount of Importations, market
prices, competition and transportation.
Senator Penrose uceepted Mr. La Fol
lette's amendment.
When the Democrats through Pen
ntor Kern, their. !-ider, asked for nit .
xecut!ve srs'len '.he P.iipiililcnr.s re
sisted and demanded n roll cull, hut tho
executive j-esslon was ordered h a voto
of 48 to 34. three Progressive Repub
licans La Follette, Works and Poln
tlexter voting with tho Democrats.
At the time the executivo session was
moved by ilr. Kern, Senator .Simmons
was still explaining that there was no
necessity for further public hearings.
The eagerness of the Republicans to
get a vote to-day on the question of
public hearings and tho unwillingness
of the Democrats, apparently to muke
n test of strength occasioned much
surprise. Hefore the Senate met to-day
it was freely predicted even by the
Republican lenders thnt the Democrats
probably would be able to defeat tho
demands for public henrlngs, but It
soon become apparent that they
couldn't see enough votes In Mght to
muke their point.
The struggle will probnbly be re
newed to-morrow, anil there Is soma
talk of according public hearings nnd
limiting the time to ten dnys or two
In his speech to-day Chairman Sim
mons warned Senutors that if pub
lic hearings wero held It would pro
long the tariff legislation for six weeks
at least. He told his colleagues that
the Democrats lu this case were follow
ing the example set by tho Republicans
under the leadership of Senator Aldrlch
at the time the Pnyne-Aldrich law was
before the Senato Commltteo on Fi
nance. He was quizzed sharply by Senator
William Alden Smith, Senator Penrose,
Senator Llppltt and Senator Galllnger.
Senator Simmons Anally took Mr.
Smith off his feet by saying that he
decllnpd to ylM ffr u "volrwnlc rrup-.
Senator Llppltt declared that the
Democrats were legislating mi the tniiff
In "star chamber session." Senator Pen
rose declared It wan even worse than
that. When Senator Simmons declared
that the only result that would follow
tho granting of public henrlngs would
be "long winded speeches," Senator Pen
rose retored thai Mr. Simmons hnd evi
dently forgotten tils own speech lasting
four days tn support of tho duty on
lumber delivered when the Payne-Ald-rich
bill was up.
The Republicans howled with delight
at this thrust and Chairman Simmons,
Joining in tho laughter provoked at his
expense, declared that at that time the
materials that entered Into the manu
facture of lumber were all highly taxed
and that he had aald at the time that If
tho burdensome taxes on the production
of lumber were removed lie would te in
fuvor of placing lumber on the free list.
"Tho Senator Is almost as earnest
now as he waB at that time In favor of
he duty on lumber," interjected Sena
tor Penrose, whereat the Republicans
again Joined ln laughter at the Demo-
rratlc expense.
It was evident that the Republicans
were uniteu in opposition io inn uuuci-
wood bill. One ot the manifestations of
harmony that aroused much comment
was Senator Penrosn and Senator 1m
Follette seated tn tho front row of the
Republican side with their heada to-,
