READY FOR A VOTE.
The Discussion on the Dingley Bill About Over. MANY POLITICAL SPEECHES MADE. An Altrmpl Made to Extend the nehate bat It Was Loot Hides on the Free LNt Cuw Some Debate Will Vote a the Hill Todav. WAsmyoTW. March 31. Party feel Inp ran hipU daring the last day of the tariff debate in the house. Political peeohes were wedded in at every op portunity and there was constant ma uo uverinir for political advautapre. The opposition directed their efforts as far as possible toward stirring up dis sensions on the Republican side, but they succeeded only in exposing a sin gle instance of revolt. That was on the subject of free hides. The Democrats pressed the question of a duty on hides for the benefit of the farmer with such inor that Air. Hepburn (Rep.. Ia ) was drawn into the debate, and made a strong plea for dutiaDle hides. He de manded that the house be given an op portunity to vote on this question, and declared that every western Republi can was in favor of it. Mr. Cannon Iil.s.) also pave a qualified endorsement to tiiis aemaud. The Republican lead ers defended their bill with vigor. The ways and means committee held the floor with their amendments for six hours. About 35 were offered and adopted. Among them was one ad mitting, free of duty, "books, scientific apparatus, charts, maps, etc.."' for scientific and educational purposes. After that five more ruiees of the bill were read, making 20 pages in all of the W'2 pages of the bill. The bill was open for amendment un til 1 o'clock today, an attempt to ex tend the debate having failed, after which an hour on a side will be allowed to close. The voting , will begin at " o'cliK-k. The Democrats displayed a pood leal of anxiety to pet in an amendment to strike out the differen tial on sugar, but they probably will be frustrated in this. The only motion they may be able to secure a vote on is one to recommit with instructions. This mation has been prepared in the shape of a resolution, and is the Dock ery amendment to suspend the duty on articles whose prices are controlled by trusts or combinations. Even this motion may be held to be out of order under the special order. There is some talk of a number of Republican votes bring cast against the bill, but after in vestigation it seems probable that those who may be dissatisfied with particular provisions of the bill will line up on the final vote, and there will be no break in the Republican ranks. Among the amendments adopted were the following : Paper not specially provided for, 25 per cent ad valorem ; hats, bonnets, etc., unbleached, 15 per cent, bleached, 25 per cent ; making the duty on brushes uniform at 40 per cent ; safety fuses, !55 per cent ; qualifying the duty on crude tartar dutiable at 1 cent per pound so as to provide that such tartar must not contain more than 50 per cent of bitar trate of potash ; striking out paragraph Ss-J fixing duties on Orienal. Berlin and similar rugs (Mr. Dingley explained that the effect of this amendment was to restore the duties of the act of ls!M on carpets) ; to change the phraseology of the embroidered glove schedule to meet a recent decision of the board of general appraisers. Another amend ment provided that no gloves larger than size 6 should be classe as chil drens gloves Mr. Cannon (Rep., Ills.) prefaced his remarks with- the declaration that he was for the pending bilL He was not pleased with all its features. He never had been pleased with any revenue bill. He appreciated that there must be a spirit of give and take, and he was frank to say he thought there could well be a duty on hides, as the impres sion was deeply grounded in the west that a duty on hides would raise the price on cattle f 1 a head. Mr. Slayden (Dem., Tex.) expressed gratification that the dormant Republi can conscience had been awakened in spots. He proceeded to argue that a duty on hides would be of practical benefit to the cattle raisers of the plains of Texas, Kansas and the Dakotas Mr. Bell (Pop., CoL) warned the Re publicans that if they passed this bill, containing high duties, without impos ing at least a revenue duty on hides, distinctly a product of the farm, they would regret it. Why should the wool men of a few states be so generously dealt with and the cattle raiser denied anything? Mr. Dingley defended the action of the committee, saying that we could tan hides with our cheap material for the foreign market. Weighing the bal ance of advantages, the committee de cided against a duty on hides, Out tanning industry, he said, was adjusted to free hides, and it was de cided that a duty on hides would not be of advantage to the farmer, and would be a distinct disadvantage to our export trade. Mr. Hepburn (Rep., Ia.) then came forward with a vehement speech in favor of a duty on hides. Mr. Hep burn declared that the wool interests dwarfed in contrast with the vast cattle interests of the country. Iowa was more interested in hides than wool. She marketed annually $,ooo,000 worth of hides and not 10 per cent of that amount of wooL He demanded that the ways and means committee allow the sense of the house to be taken on this question, and affirmed, with great posit iveness, that every Republican from the west favored a duty on hides. "We insist," he shouted, "that the tanning and leather industries of New York, Pennsylvania and New England should not be allowed to stifle the de mands of the west." Democratic ap plause. Mr. Dockery contributed to the con troversy over hides the statement that "you were notified by a member of the senate, then a representative on this floor, (Mr. Dodge), that if hides were not left on the free list Massachusetts would defeat the bill." Mr. Norton (Dem., O.) made a vicious assault on the majority. Instead of de nouncing Mr. Cleveland on every occa sion, he said, the other side ought to be down on their knees at the feet of hit "perspiring obesity and ponderous port dsrosity," thanking him for the oppor tunity he had given them to again "rob the people." An amendment rating steel strings for musical instruments at 45 per cent, one putting bolting cloths for milling purposes at 25 per cent (free under Mc Kiuley bill) and reducing the duty on cocoa fiber and rattan matting from 8 to 4 cents per square yard and on mats of a similar material from 8 to 4 cent? were adopted. Mr. Perkins (Rep., Ia.) madea humor ens speech of five minutes, deriding the Democracy and its panaceas for the people's ills. Magnesia, not medicinal, carbonate of potash and sheep dip were placed on the free list. Mr. Henderson (Ia.) took occasion at this point to deny that this bill was framed in the interest of the east. He pointed out that the west held a major ity on the committee, and were entirelv competent to care for the interests to which they were committed. Mr. Cowherd (Dem., Mo.) declared that the tariff on Mexican cattle was a blow at the farmers and the wool sched ule also. In reply Mr. Dolliver had read a let ter from Norman Gibbs of Alt. Vernon. Mo., president of the Short Horn as sociation, asking a duty of f 10 a head on Mexican cattle in the name of the cattlemen of that section. Mr, Smith (Dem., Ariz.) talked on the cattle schedule, asserting that the rates amounted to 125 per cent ad va lorem so far as they concerned his territory. In rebuttal o Mr. Dolliver's lttT, Mr. Wheeler L. n.. Aia. I read a lea r from Hoi:. Norn; n J. Coleman of St. Louis, the first secretary of agriculture, asking for an ad valorem duty on cattle that Mexican stock might be brought into this coui.-fry for feeding. Mr. Brui-kpr Dem., Mich.) denounced the duty of 2 on lumber as robbery. The lumber barons were permitted to go into Canada and have their lumber sawed by the cheap lab'T there. It was free trade in labor and protection for the manufacturer. The amendment pending was adopt ed ; also an amendment increasing the rates on horses and mules to those of the act of lsw. Mr. Richardson asked if the chair man of the ways and means committee would not be kind enough to allow the minority to "offer just one little amend ment." "I presume it is to strike out the en acting clause." said Mr. Dingley. "No," replied Mr. Richardson, "it is ; IU Mll&cuui hit; uiiinciiiiai nil u-ii "We will consider any amendment," observed Mr. Dingley, his response causing a smile on the Democratic side. Mr. McMillin followed this up with a request that the committee now pro ceed to the consideration of the sugar schedule. Several Republicans objected. "We will pet to that schedule," said Mr. Hopkins, "if you will allow us to pro ceed." "All right," replied Mr. McMillin. "we will let the reading proceed and 6ee how sincere yon are." The clerk then resumed the reading of the bill where he stopped on Satur day. Mr. Lentz (Dem., O. ) was the first to interrupt the reading of the bill. He presented a numler of protests from bi tuminous coal miners against the res toration of 75 cents a ton on coal. He declared that the restoration was in the interest of the anthracite coal pool of the east. Mr. Grosvenor (Rep., O.) in replv said Mr. Lieu.' remarks had demon strated his ignorance. He said the east was in favor of a lower duty on coal. The introduction of coal on the Atlantic seaboard did effect the coal market in Ohio, and his district mined one-third of the coal of his state. Canada now imposed a duty of tiO cents per ton on our coal. Our duty was now 40 cents. The committee then rose. An at tempt was then made to extend the de bate an hour to-day, but- the Republi cans refused to agree to this unless the Democrats would agee to vote on the amendments in gross. But the Demo crats declined to accede to this condi tion and all negotiations fell through. Mr. Wheeler tried to secure consent for a night session, but Mr. Dingley said it would be impossible to secure a quorum. ASKING FOR INFORMATION. Resolution In the Senate Regarding Gomez Letter to the President. Washington, March 31. Senator Allen (Pop.. Neb.) made a long speech in the senate on the unconstitutionality of the tariff taxes beyond those requis ite for revenue. Mr. Allen severely criticized the trusts and combinations which, he declared, reaped the main advantage of tariff taxes. The sena tor's remarks were in the nature of a legal argument, showing the constitu tional limitations on the taxing power of congress. At the conclusion of Mr. Allen's re marks the resolution was referred to the finance committee. The house amendments to the senate joint resoiution appropriating $25o,0oo for the saving of life and property along the Mississippi were agreed to and the resoiution now goes to the president. The Cuban rmetion was brought for ward again by Mr. Morgan (Ala.), who presented a resolution requesting the president to inform the senate whether letters had been received by the present and former chief executive from Gen eral Maximo Gomez, commander of the revolutionary forces in Cuba. The res olution recited at length the letters said to have been forwarded to President McKiuley and his predecessor from Gomez and published in the news papers. The resolution concluded with a re quest that the president shall also in form the senate whether the Spanish authorities in Cuba have refused to al low cipher dispatches to be transmitted between the United States consul as Sagua la Grande and the United States consul general at Havana. The senate then went into executive session on the arbitration treaty. WILL NOT DISBAND. Western Traffic Aiiorlsllon to Biti Nothing to Do With Rates. Chicago, March 31. The passengei representatives of the various western roads met at the otiire of the Western Passenger association for the purpost of considering the future of that organization. The meeting lasted th greater part of the day and at its clost it was decided to recommend to the executive officers that the Western Passenger association be continued ir existence, but that it shall hereaftei have nothing to do with rates or th maintenance of rates. It was recom mended that it be a bureau of informa tion and statistics only, but that tht bureaus which have the handling ol the clergy tickets and of the mileage transportation shall be continued in force. These bureaus have nothing whatever to do with rates, and it is not thought that they come under the scop of the supreme court decision. The services of nearly all of thf clerks in tiie association will be re tained, as there will be plenty of work for them in looking after the mileage and clergy business. The only thing that has been taken from the work ot the association, in fact, is that concern ing rates. The roads have practically agreed that for the time leing they will do their utmost to avoid any de moraiization in rates. The western roads have come to the coin lusion that they will be compelled to abandon their emigrant cleanng. house in New York. This was run on a pooling arrangement pure and sim ple, and the snprt-nie court decision does not leave it a g M stand upon. Illino.a IC-ml l.lill,.. Oneida. Ills.. March The State bank here has ho n robbed. Kntrauc was made through thf front door. 'Un safe was cracked witli nitroglycerin The amount taken is between $:i.iK' and ,OO0. P. sides the Oneida affair the bank at Beggsville was robbed of 400. Banks at Kewauee and Altoona were also visited, but no money ob tained. Officials have arrested four men presumably from Chicago and have them in jail. Itooght a Half Interest. DrLCTir, March 31. A half interest in the great Mahoning iron mine on the western Mesaba has been bought by the Cambria Iron company of Penn sylvania. The price is not known hre. but it is not far from U)ii.OOO. The mine will easily produce from f.OO.ooo to 000,000 tons of ore yearly. The sale leaves but one of the great steel mak ing firms of Peiinsvlvauia and Ohio Without a Mesaba mine. An Kx-Cnnsresman Head. Colcmbcs. March 31. Hon. George L. Converse, ex-member of congress, has died here. He was ill seven months.' was in his iOih year and died in the county of his birth. He served in the house and senate of the Ohio legisla ture from isiM) to 1S;5 and again in the house in lS7:i.when he was speaker. He was in congress three terms and was a Randall protective tariff Democrat. Refused to Liberate lUm.nr. Lima. Peru, March 31. The issued raised between Peru and the United States with respect to the imprisonment of Ramsay, the American sailor, is be coming a serious matter. The Peruvian government refuses to accede to the de mand of the United States minister, Mr. McKenzie, to set Ramsay immedi- ately at liberty. FffillTRHTlN CRETE. The Cretans Dislodge the Turkish Garrison. THEY THEN' SEIZE A VESSEL. A French Warship Iintohed to Render tnnlancr (irerce Now lrepr-l for War 1'owers Want the Sultan to Withdraw Troop From Frontier. Canea. March 31. The Greeks have attacked Fort Izzedin. which dominates Suda Bay. The foreign iroi clads bom barded the attacking force in suit'" of the Turkish garrison, which had 12 cannon and one mitrailleuse, f inally detachments of the foreign troops occu pied the fortress. There was sharp fighting at Spina longa. The Cretans succeeded in dis lodging thejTurks, and seized a vesel which was lauding ammunition to them. Several shots have been fired at the foreign occupying forces at Putsu naiia. The French commander has ob tained reinforcements to replace the Turkish outposts, which are said to be absolutely unreliable. Tne fighting at Spinalonpa lasted 4i hours. The Turkish garrison met with a heavy loss. A French warship has been dispatched to render them such assistance as may now be practicable. As to the Cretan situation, proper, it is understood that the admirals in com mand of the foreign fleets in Cretan waters are of the opinion that now that Greece has virtually completed her war preparations on the frontier of Thes saly, a blockade of the principal Greek ports would be useless, thus bearing out the forecasts previously made in these dispatches that the refusal of Great Britain to take active part in the blockade of Greece might lead to the collajise of that scheme to prevent an outbreak of hostilities. Under these circumstances all the efforts of the am bassadors of the powers here are now being directed toward prevailing upon the Tnrltish government to advise the sultan to withdraw the Turkish troops from Crete as another step to Greece and as another attempt to prevent war, aud, in addition, the ambassadors are endeavoring to prevail upon Greece and Turkey to agree to the establishment of a neutral zone between the opjosing Turks and Greeks on the two frontiers. The ambassadors have made strong representations to the porte in favor of permitting the immediate departure of those of the Mussulmans in Crete who have expressed a desire to emigrate. This will probably be agreeable, but as to the witiidrawal of the Turkish troops the sultan has not yet shown any disposition to submit to that de mand. The Austrian government, upon the representations of the porte, has pro hibited the exjMirtatiou from the east of i. 000.000 cartridges which were in course of shipment to Greece. The representatives of Greece have pro tested against this action upon the part of the Austrian government, claiming it is illegal and arbitrary, as no state of war exists. It is not likely that the protest will have any effect. Tiie work of preparing for the defense of Salonica is now said to have been completed and all danger of an attack upon this Turk ish base of supplies is believed to have pa.-sed. PENNSYLVANIA LEGISLATURE. Flam For a New Capitol IlUAiness In the House. Harrisiu'iio, March 31. New capi tol plans were presented to the legis lature by the house committee on pub lic buildings and grounds, in a report on the governor's message of March 11, which advocated a capitol io cose 550, 000. The report is a complete resume of the subject of capitol building, and considers the subject from every stand point. In the point of cost, the com mittee disagrees with the governor, and there are t-everal recommendations at variance with the governor's ideas. One million dollars is the amount of money recommended for the new capi tol complete. Many bills were reported from com mittees. The Saylor bill creating a state board of dental examiners was negatived. The Creasy bill fixing the maximum passenger fare on steam railways at :.' cents a mile was negatived. yuite a number of bills were intro duced. Among the bills that passed were the following : To punish the loan, gift, sale or dis tribution of immoral writings, etc., and of all drugs for criminal purposes. Punishing the sending of anonymous communications of a libelous, defama tory, scuirilous or opprobrious nature. The bill to create a state bureau of geology aud mines was defeated. MISERY IN CUBA. Smallpox Very Prevalent The Spanish Kmliark Political I'rixoiier. Havana, March 31. Great misery is being experienced at San Cristobal and elsewhere in tne province of Pinar del Rio. owing to the prevalence of small pox. The mortality is great. The mu nicipal authorities are distributing re lief when they are able to do so, that is to say when the troops succeed in driving in the cattle from the surround ing hills. General Velazco is continuing mili tary operations against the insurgents of Pinar del Rio. acting in conjunction with General Suarez luclan.

Colonel Bacal lao. was wounded when the first shots were exchanged between the Spanish troops and the insurgents. Tne news of the capture of General Rivera has spread, it is stated, through Santa Clara, and, combined with the steady pursuit of the insurgents by the government forces, is rapidlv diminish ing the number of tiie enemy. The principal plantations are reported to be grinding cane freely and without interruption. The Spanish authorities embarked 43 political prisoners for the Chafarine islands, together with 12 fe male nanigos. TFTRcE PF.RSONS SUFFOCATED. A New York Dwelling Tartly Destroyed by Fire. New York, March 31. Three per sons, two women and a baby, were smothered to death by smoke in the double brown stone, five-story dwelling house, til West One Hundred and Fifth street, which was partially destroyed by a fire that originated in a dumb waiter in the basement of the building, spread to an air shaft and from there up through the hose. The dead are : Mrs. Elizabeth French. 2S years old; her C-month-old child and Miss Ellen Morrissey of Albany Ten families lived in the house, but there were no men on the premises when the fire broke out. All of the women and children on the first four floors got out of the burning building. The three persons who lost their lives were the only occupants of the fifth floor when the fire broke out. They ran to a window overlooking the street and made their presence in the burning building known to the fire men.

Gunnison, Miss., March 31. News has ju-t been received here by special messenger teat the levee has broken at Stokes, or Sunny Wild plantation, two and a half miles south of Gunnison. There will be great destruction of prop erty. This break will put Gunnison in a very precarious position, placing the town between two crevasses, one at Perthshire, four miles north, and the break at Stokes. Gunnison is already under water from one to six feet, aud the break south of here will add to this. Some of the pictures witnessed on some of the thoroughfares of the Gun nison were skiffs, dugouts and every other kind of cheap craft, occupied by the unfortunates who were trying to recover their household effects fiom the flood. Some were able to enter their houses by the doorway and the win dows Greenville, Miss., March 31. The country around and about here is now flooded, but it is believed the town will be saved. The planters are working like beavers, moving their stock and corn to piaces of safety. The negroes on the great plantations archieing cared for and no destitution is reiorted. The situation north of Greenville was inten sified by a break in the levee near Stops Landing, in Boliver county. This break is no less than 80 miles above Greenville. Visions of the flood that invaded the town in IsflOoanie vividly before the minds of the people, and there was bustle and confusion every where. The opinion prevailed that the water would find its way into the north ern part of the city, and carpets were taken up and drays were busy taking furniture to the two-story buildings in the business part of the city. Washington, March 31. The weather bureau has issued the following secial river bulletin: During the past 24 hours the Ohio, Cumberland, Tennessee and Arkansas rivers have fallen slowly and the Ret! has risen. The St. Francis river has ris.-n 2 feet since Saturday and is still rising rai idly. The upper Mississippi, from St. Paul to Dubuque, has risen slightly and is above the dan ger line at Lacrosse. The Mississippi has fallen slightly from Keokuk to Cairo and risen from Helena to New Orleans, except a slight fall at Arkan sas City, du to a crevasse near that place. It is above the danger line from Cairo to New Orleans, and from Mem phis to Arkansas City is above the ex treme high water of any previous years. THE FIGHT STILL ON. No Choir Yet Kearheil In the Ken tucky Senatorfthip. Frankfort, Ky., March 31. The continuous balloting for senator result ing in no further loss of strength by Dr. Hunter is evidently very pleasing to his friends, who had been threatened with a stampede from their man when ever continuous balloting should begin. They claim that it means Dr. Hunter's ultimate victory in that nothing can shake the OH who are standing solidly for him, and that the gold Democrats, who are determined to have an elec tion, will sooner or later come to him and more than supply the needed five votes. The anti-Hunter people claim that the trial demonstrates that the nominee cannot get the necessary votf s, cannot be elected, and, therefore, should withdraw or bo withdrawn in favor of some other Republican. There are hundreds of schemes hatch ing and some 15 or "JO candidates on the ground ready to inherit the mantle of the nominee whenever it is possible to do so. The indication are that Dr. Hunter has no idea of withdrawing ; that no attempt to get him to withdraw is being made, and that the final fight will be a close finish between Hunter and Blackburn or Hunter and Bradley. The latest scheme is a fusion on W. C. P. Breckinridge by the Republicans and gold Democrats, and there are dozen of men here who really believe that Breckinridge may be elected. Shipwrerket! Crew Iteaened. Pensacola, Fla.. March 31. The British steamship .Taneta. which has arrived here from Port Elizabeth, had on board the master and crew of eight men of the shipwrecked schooner Mar garet, which sailed from Mobile on the 11th insr. with lumber for Cienfuecos and which was wrecked off Cape San Antonio, Cuba. The crew was rescued on the 27th inst. The Spanish forces took the schooner for a filibuster and her master was interviewed by Spanish authorities after he had gone on board the Janetm. Fighting In the I'hillippine Inland. M adrid. March 31. An official dis patch from Manilla, capital of the Philippine islands, announces that in an engagement between Spanish troops and insurgent forces 30 insurgents were killed and 1.0'.l surrendered. Three thousand families from the insurgent camp have reached Manilla. lo Form Another Fool. Cleveland, March 31. The old range ore men, representing all the Bessemer mines except those on the Mesaba range, met to form a pool to supplant the association which recently went to pieces.
