FLAX, HEMP AND JUTE SCHEDULES
Immediately after the reading of the journal
of yesterday the tariff bill was takcu up under
the agreement limiting the discussion on each
subject to five minutes for each Senator.
Mr. Gibson withdrew the amendment offered
by hini last Tuesday to tho sugar schedule, a
mistake having been made in it, and ho offered
another amendment striking out that schedule
and substituting for it the sugar provisions of
the Mills bill.
Mr. Butler presented a communication re
ceived by him from tho Stato Department
showing the relative exportation* of cotton
goods bv Great Britain and tho United States.
Mo thought that the information might bo
valuable in view of reciprocal propositions.
WUAT ENGLAND WOULD DO WERE IT HOT FOB
Mr. Hoar, in connection with the subject, re
ferred to a statement which he haj recently
read in tho autobiography of an English gen
tleman (Mr. Glover) to the effect that u cotton
manufacturer who had been traveling exten
sively through the United 8tates said that if it
wrro not for the American tariff England wouUJ
shut up every American cotton manufactory
within (no years.
Mr. Butler said he did not know anvthing
about that; but he had been very inuch grati
ned and encouruged to soe hi* republican
friends enlarging their economic vision some
what, reaching out to South America. Central
America, (. anada and other parts of the world.
And he had thought that the information pre
sented by him might be of service. It showed
now absolutely Great Britain had control of the
market iu South and Central America and also
in Asia nnd Africa?tho value of tho cotton
goods exported into those countries bv Great
Britain last year being 4177,000.000, against
about *20.000,000 from tho United States,
lie therefore asked to Lave tho paper
printed in the Itecord. It was so ordered.
J he presiding oflicer (Mr.IngRlls) announced
that general debate on the tariff bill had closed
with the exception of the reservation of the
day when tho linal vote is to be taken and when
threo hours' time is to be allowed to each side.
The sugar schedule was laid aside informally
and schedule I, "cotton manufactures," was
Amendments to reduce the rates in various
paragraphs of tho schedule were offered bv Mr
Mcpherson. Mr. Carlisle and Mr. Vance", and
were uniformly rejected without a vea and nay

All tho paragraphs in schedule I having been
disposed of schedule H was taken up,relating to
flux, hemp, jute and their luanufacturos. Tho
finance committee had reported an amend
ment to paragraph 340, reducing tho rate on
flax not hackled or dressed from \\4 cents a
pound to $20 a ton. On this amendment Mr
Washburn demanded the yeas and nays. The
vote was taken and the commlttec amendment
was agreed to?yeas. 32; nays, 14. All the
democrats voted yea. The negative votes were
given by Senators Allen, Cameron, Cnsev
Davis. Dolph, Higgins, McMillan. Moody'
I addock, Pierce, Sherman, Stockbcidge, Wash

The next amendment was that of the finance
committee to paragraph 341. It was to reduco

SIB. CARLISLE RAID
that all those raw materials?flax, hemp and
jute?ought to bo on the free list, so that the
duty on the textile fabrics into which they en
tered might be reduced. He thought it use
less. howevor, to make a motion to that
effect. Mr. Davis, Mr. Wilson of Iowa
Mr. Dawes nnd Mr. Washburn argued
agamst the amendment and Mr. Hiscoek and
Mr. Allison for It. It was agreed to -yeas, 33
nays, 10. Mr. Allison explained why the'
amendment had been reported from tho
huance -ommittee. There was a great pres
sure. he said, in certain portions oi tho coun
try for the development of tho ilnen manufac
ture winch found its home in New Jersov and
New England. Ho had his doubt as to whether
it could be successful in tho immediate future
But in order to make it a success the House
bill proposed to double tho duty
on linen fabrics, of which only
tho coarser A>rts were tnade in the
L mted Statos. If tho duties were doubled on
tho raw material, then, as a matter of course
tho duty would have to be doubled on the
manufactured fabric. If Senators were ready
to do that they would vote against tho atnend
mrat He was not quite prepared to do that,
especially as he knew that not one particlo of
the flax produced in Iowa, the Dakotns or Min
nesota could be utilized for fiber, and at the
same time utilized for seed.
The democrats all voted for tho committee
amendment and tho following republicans
against it: Messrs. Allen, Cameron, Casey,
Davis. Dolph, Higgins. McMillan, Mandorson.
Moody. Mitchell, Paddock, Pierce, Quay, Bher
man, Stockbrldge and Washburn.
THE AMENDMENT ADOPTED.
In the next paragraph (341) the financo com
mitteo had reported an amendment to reduce
the duty on flax or kemp to* from #25 to $10
Mr. Sherman argued again** the amendment.
Ho complained that the finaaoe committee had
not applied to the flax, heap and jute schedule
the saroo rule that it had applied toother
schedules, in which duties had been stretched
and increased, whilo in this schedule they had
been reduco 1 '
Mr. Davis and Mr. Vest opposed the amend

The amendment was agreed to without the
yeas and nays.
The next paragraph, relating to hemp, havint
been read Mr. Hoar stated, on the authority of
a gentleman engaged in ihe manufacture of
binding twine, that the only combination in
tho business are arrangements for the purchase
of theforeign raw material and for a fair and

favored with a model Saratoga September day.
The day ii bright and pleasant, the air dry and
cool?Just cool enough to sharpen the wits and
refresh the body, leaving overcoats among the
things not to be thought of. As early as 9 a.m.

| committee in Congress Hall, and hand shak-|
ing. friendly greeting* and informal caucusing
became the order. Col. E. A. McAlpine. pres

does, was early on hand, as wero also Secretary

Immigration Inspector John E. Milhollaud,
Congressman James H. Doliivcr. Hon. Sloat
Fassett, B. 15. I,uird and John S. Smith of New
York were other prominent leaders who re
ported early at headquarters.
Sir. Milhollaud is looked upon as the leading
candidate for president t-hould Mr. McAlpiue
at the last moment change his mind ana dc
oline re-election. John 8. Smith of New York
is a good second for the same office, however,
and should McAlpiue retire from the field there
is likely to be a contest for the honor. But at
this writing it is the general belief that the old
board of officers, with a few exceptions in tho
executive committee, will be re-elected with a
rush. Delegates are arriving ou every train
and if the ratio continues until noon, the hour
| of meeting, five or six hundred will be on
haud or nearly tho full representation.
i The large and beautiful Congress Hall ball
room, where the convention meets, is In readi
ness for the gathering. At one end of the room
near the speaker's stand. a ballot reform booth
lias been erected. The new officers will be
elected accordiug to the regulations of the new
law and tho convention given a practical illus
tration of its workings. The Unconditional
Club of Albany is expected to attend the con
vention m a body,as is also tho Oneida Battery
of Oneida. At 11 o'clock the executive com- |
mittee went intv executive session.
The session o the executive committee was
devoted to routine wor? and consisted of con
sideration of finances, tho standing of the
league as to numerical strength, admission of |
new clubs and notice of those discontinued.
The number of club, falling out and the num
ber of new ones added were about equal. It
was recommended that a committeo of five be
appointed by the president to determine which
club is winner of the banner offered by the
Buffalo republican leagu" for best pro rata
attendance at caucuscs aud meetings during
the past yeur.
