Iowa Prohibitionists Make
a Vigorous Fight.
The Tariff Debate Growing
A Hard Struggle Over the Sugar
Schedule McKinley Finally
Curries His Point.
Washington, May 20. Stanford in
troduced a bill for loans on public lands
nnd announced tlint ho would hereafter
address the Senate on this subject.
Tho Senate then proceeded to consider
the original package bill. Wilson of
Iowa, who introduced tho bill, nddrcfsed
tho Senate in explanation and advocacy
of it, stating that it was made necessary
by the recent decision of the Supreme
Court. It seems in rc-ponso to a sug
gestion contained in that decision, that
Congress could permit tho exercise of
tho restraining power to n State, and it
was for the purpose of gaining that per
mission that the bill had been intro-
duced and reported. The effect would
be to leave each state to determine for
itself what its policy should bo in re
gard to traffic in intoxicating liquors.
At the present time original package
saloons were lcing organized in his
State and it was to put a stop to such
practice and to recognize in every
State the power to regulate its own
internal policy that the bill was re
ported. Vest sa'ul he was not ablo to agree
with the majority of tho coiumitteo in
rej)orting the bill, because it would
sweep away the exclusive jurisdiction
of the United States over interstate
commerce. The Supreme Court had
decided sympathetically that alcoholic
stimulants were articles of interstate
commerce among the State-) and with
foreign nations was an exclusive pow er
vested in Congress by the constitution.
The intimation that Congress might
delegate to the State that power
wns not .in consonace with that
decision. He contended that it could
not be done. The Supreme court had
decided that tho power of Congress over
interstate commerce was exclusive. If
it could be delegated in regard as to one
article of merchandise, alcohol, it could
bo delegated as to any other articles,
wheat, corn, rye, oleomargine, etc. Was
the Senate going to make that new de
parture? Was it on the mere dictum of
the Supreme court to tear down the bar
riers of the constitution? The real
question, he said, was w hether Congress
could delegate iower vested in it by the
constitution to any State or any num
ber of States. He believed it could not.
To do so would bo to destroy the inter
state clause of tho constitution and all
purposes for which it was intended. So
far from having nny uniformity, there
would be in that caso deversity and
hostility. If Missouri would shut out
one article, Kansas another and so on
thero would xs chaos from one end
of the Union to the other.
At 2 o'clock the silver bill came up as
unfinished business, but was laid aside
informally, and Vest continued. He
Raid that if tho original package bill
were not passed it would open up an oj
portunitv for a successive series of
such bills, just as emergencies
or tho opinions of the different States
might call for that sort of legislation.
How long would it be, ho asked, until
another demand was made upon Con
gress to give permission to all tho states
to excludo something else, tobacco for
Hoar agreed in favor of tho hill. Un
less what was proposed in this bill, or
something equivalent, could bo done it
would Iks a law of tho United States for
nil futuro time, unless a constitutional
amendment were adopted, that any
person living in another state or in a
toreign country, could send intoxicating
liquors into any state and dispose of it
through their agents, and it would not i
ins iwnirieiu iui nny euue nuiuuruy w
prohibit it.
Rdinunds remarked upon it as a curious
and interesting circumstance that a
condition of things had lieen reached
when, according to debate and accord
ing to the judgement of tho Supreme
court, states had no power to deal with
this subject and Congress had no power
to deal witn it. The result was that
there was in every man in ono state an
inherent individual personal right
to crrry into another state
what that state might consider
injurious to its.safety and there to sell
it, that congress has no power to stop it,
and that the states had no power to
stop it unless congress gavo them that
power. It was only necessary to state
such a proposition to show that some
where, either in the Supremo Court or
in congress, had been taken tho largest
step ever taken within onu hundred
years in this Republic towards tho cen
tralization of power. Ho did not be
lieve in this centralization of power.
Shaking of the importation of intoxi
cating liquors into a State, Kdmunds
claimed that onco got there, thoy were,
whether in the hands of natives or not,
subject to State laws.and that was what
the Supreme Court would come to within
the next twenty years. After some fur
ther discussion tho bill went over with
out action and the Senate proceeded to
the consideration of the resolutions of
fered by Cameron in respect to
tho memory of the Into Repre
sentative Kelly, of Pennsylvania.
At the closo of tho eulogies tho Senate,
as a further mark of respect to tho mem
ory of Mr. Kellcy, adjourned.
Washington, May 20. Tho ways and
means committee this morning gave
short hearings to representatives of sev
eral industries which seek to have
amendments made to tho tariff bill. In
coiumitteo of tho whole on tho tariff bill
Cowles, of North Carolina, offered an
amendment repealing the tobacco tax.
MeKennn.California, moved an amend
ment to tho sugar schedule reducing
tno existing sciienuio iij per cent., and
retaining the dividing lino at 13 instead
of 15, as in the present bill.
McKonna said that tho pending bill
in nil its particulars, except tho
sugar, schedule, was brave and strong.
In tho sugar schedule it was timid,
time-serving nnd weak. In other sched
ules tho bill cairied out tho Republican
principle; in the sugar schedulo tho
bill refused to ono industry tho bcncli
of Republican principles. It might bo
well for tho Republicans to pause nnd
consider what they were doing. As to
its practical and political effect, if not
to its moral effect. Tho Chicago plat
form had enumerated tho ways and
means of reducing the revenue, nnd
declared that tho internal revenuo sys
tem should bo destroyed rather than
that any part of tho protective system
should be surrendered. Tho sugar in
dustry was n part of tho protective sys
tem that was surrenderee! by the bill.
Tho sugar schedulo pointed as directly
us ever free trader iointed to tho benelit
of buying in tho cheapest market.
(Democratic applause.) Tho Republi
can party could not make sugar a
scapegoat' for the surplus without in
volving tho protective system itself.
MeKenna was frequently applauded by
tho Democrats. His sugar amendment
was defeated, 115 to 131.
On motion of MeKinlev, a number of
amendments were adopted reducing the
duty on certain building material used
as ornaments for stores, except marble ;
changing the eluty on steel ingots valued
above 10 cents per pound, from -15 per
cent, ad valoroin to 7 cents a pound;
placing on the freo list fish from Ameri
can fisheries and fresh or frozen fish
caught in fre.h waters except salmon.
McKinley also offered an amendment
fixing the duty on shot guns valued at
not more than $12 at ulS per cent., more
than if 12 -10 per cent, and pistols and re
volving pistols 33 per cent. Waller of
Mississippi protested vigorously. If the
amendment was adopted, ho sa'id, with
in live years the business of manufactur
ing firo arms in this country would be
destroyed. Tho amcn.lmeiit was finally
agrecel to.

a large audience to-day at Lincoln on the

Have you ever overheard tho conver
sation of a number of smnll boys who,
tiring of "peel away" and "frting
goal" havo seated themselves upon a
curbstone to cool off? It is a stuely.
Thoy invnriarably talk of their respective
fathers, and the evielent desire ofj each
is to place his own particular paternal
parent on the highest pinnacle. "My
father knows more than yours," says
ono boy to another, " 'cause he's
a newspaper man ho writes for
the paper." The other boy snuffs con
temptuously nnd eays : "Huh 1 ho dont'
write nny ho gets advertisements.
That's what my pa says." Then the
first boy gets back with: "Maylte he
does, but ho gets freo tickets to the
theater, just the same." This is usunlly
a crusher, ns boys do not usually see
anything above free theater tickets. A
third lxv boasts that his pa is on the
Roard of Trado and that no lias often
accompanied him there, while a fourth
liov's pa is in a rnilroael office and can
lieie without paying. So the youngsters
go on, while their fathers hustle for
them, and the "old gents" would all
feel proud if they knew what enthu
siastic curbstone champions they had.

Atchison was the strong feature all

of its securing complc control
of tho Atlantic and Pacific, together

Holdover Officials Begin to
Lose Their Grip.
Three Allow the Matter
Go By Default.
Continuation of the Argument
the Insane Asylum Cases
Uehan's Fight.
The official torcdo's are on the run.
In fact, some of them have concluded
that it is better to let go gracefully than
tei be "flreel," and yesterday in the Dis
trict court judgment by default was en
tered in the enses of the Territory on
the motion of the Attorney-General
againstJFred. J. Fleishman, treasurer of
the Ixiard of asylum directors, and Ren
Goldman and Frank Raxter, directors
of the Territorial Normal school.
For the rest argument was continued
yesterday morning in the cases
against Secretary Alexander ,of the board
of asylum directors, and Dr. Titus, su
perintendent of the asylum, upon the
point upon which Judge Kibb desired
further enlightenment, namely as to
whether these men were public officers
or merely employes of the board of
asylum directors. Attorney Alexander
spoke for the defendants upon
his plea in nbatement, Attorney
General Churchill following for the
plaintiff, and the Judge took the matter
under advisement promising to render n
elecision at 9 o'clock this morning.
The Stato prison ca-es were
then taken up. Judge Rarnes
anncarim! for the elefense to argue
a plea in abatement upon sub
stantially the same grounds as that in
terposed'in the other cases, and Attorney-General
Churchill for the Territory.
The argument was confined exclusively
to the cae of Rehan, Judge Rarnes
taking substantially the same ground on
behalf of his client' that bad been taken
by .Mr. Alexander in speaking of Alex
ander and Titus on Monday. He argued
that Rehan was not in any sense a Ter
ritorial official. He owed his appoint
ment solely to the Roard of Stato
Prison Commissions s, to whom only
he was accountable for hi acts in office
and by whom only he could be removed.
He was not. therefore, in any sense in
truding upon or usurping an oflie-e. Mr.
Churchill re.'plieel to this by pointing out
that the position of Superintendent of
the Territorial Prison was emphatically
a public office. The Superintendent oc
cupied a most responsible position, hav
ing under his control the lives and
liberties of the occupants of the prison
with no one, entirely, to question his
authority. Of course the Prison Com
missioners exerci-e a certain supervis
ion, but they could not lx; present nil
the time ami the Superintendent was
intircly the iuler of the Prison.
At the conclusion of the Attorney
General's remarks the Rehan case was
also taken under advisement with per
mission to file points ami authorities.

An Idea Submitted.
The Nesales Herald.
The Tucson Star remarks: "Arizona
demanded home rulo in the selection of
its fedeml oH'.tiais. Her demand was
complied with." That is very true, but
to be candiel, we are fast elrifting to the
conclusion that home rule is responsible
for a great deal of the lack of harmony
that exists to-elay in the Republican
partyof the territory.

A Machine to liutter 1 1 rend.
The latest an most unique invention
is a machine for buttering bread. It is
used in connection with a great patent
bread-cutter, and is intended for use in
prisons, workhouses and other reforma
tory institutions. There is n cylindrical
shapped bruh which is fed with butter,
and lays a thin layer on the bread as
it comes from the ciitter. The machine
e'an be worked by hand steam or electri
city nnd has a capacity of cutting and but
tering 750 loaves of bread an hour. The
saving of butter nnel bread and the de
crease in the quantity of crumbs is said
to be very large.
