PARKER, BRIDGET & CO., Clothiers, 315 7th St. GULL TALKS ABOUT HI The Senator From Florida Made a Radical Speech. -XE TO AN EMPTY SENATE He Read Instructs From letters Giv ing Ietail of Spanish Atrocities. If They Were Sot Stopped the American 1'cople Would Tate Ac tion Them.elveH. To a nearly empty Senate yesterday Mr. Call of Florida made a radical pcech on the Cuban question. He spoke on his resolution relative to the recent condemna tion of Julio SaiiKuilly at Havana. He reviewed the Pamrutfly and Uovin caws and declared that Uovin had been tied to a tree and hacked to piece by the Spaniards. He read extracts from let ter. tfvinj; details of this and other Span ish atrocities. His remarks were full of information and interest. and had features that would have made his presentation a sensational one had it not been for the paucity of at tendance. At no time during his remarks were two dozen Senators in their chairs. The Florida i5cnatori.the mostadvanced Cuban sympathizer in the body. He said yesterday that if tlie.-e atrocities continued to. shock the American people, without waiting for and even regardless of ttie action of government, they would pour Into the Mand and put an end to them. Murder of American.. He dpclannl that the Spanish prisons were being drenched with patriot blood, much of it American, and recounted with much bitfrne- that very lKisible effort was being exerted by the American gov ernment to continue the conditions as they now existed. Although the Cuban resolutions were not diseased in the session of the Committee on Foreign Uelation-. yesterday morning, owing to the absence of Mr. Cameron, the niemtxT of the cfinmittce talked about the revilutions informally after the other business had been finished. It seems certain from the temper of the committee that if the efrort is made to liave the Cameron resclutioiis referred back to the committee tiiere will be a bitter fight, and the committee will in dorse its :n tnn in ordering the report and resolution which are now on the calendar. Such effort is not anticipated, for Mr. Bale and those who are with him. are satisfied with the present condition of things, and will do nothing to sfurt the agitation. Aaains.t the Resolution. Members of the committee appreciate the strength of the organization that has been erieeted to prevent final action by the Senate, and there appears to be a tacit understanding that the resolutions Khali not now tie pushed. A sufficient number of Senators have been arrayed on the other side to protract debate, and the friends of the icsoluaotis find that by rush ing them they will pabs no appropriation bills. This they do not care to do, although there are a few of the more radical Sena tors who would even go to the extreme of blocking the appropriation bills, to beeurethe passage of the resolutions. The present indications appear to be against action on the Cameron resolutions. IVISCSI.OAV MKMOKIAL, MEETING. Members of Wimodanj;his raj Tribute to Her Memory.

Free Wool Clause of the Wilson Revenue Bill. TALK AT TARIFF HEARING Since Its Pawnee the Trice o Grazing: Ijinil.s Huh Decreased and Only Oue-lialf of Them Are Utilized Demand for Protection Equal to Other Industries. The tariff hearings before the WayB and Means Committee were continued yester day, "raw wool" being the schedule under consideration. John G. Clark of Washington county, Pa., a member of the National Wol Grow ers' Association, opened the hearing. The necessity Tor protection, he said, was now apparent, tlie experiment of free wool having brought bankruptcy and distress upon many engaged in the woolgrowing business. Tlie free wool clause of the Wil son lilll he characterized as a crime. Since its passage the price of grazing lands had decreased and oul about half of them were utilized. He would not ask an extreme rate of duty, but simply one. which would perpetuate the business and give growers a chance to live. If a rate of this character was given farm lands would be utilized for wf.olgrowing and the American farmers would be able to produce all the wool used in this country. Since the number of sheep had been re duced there hail been a surplus of rami lands Tor which there was no use. William Lawrence, or Ohio, president of the National Wool Growers Association, hoped that tlie next Congress would give the woolgrowers a protection equal to that given to the most favored industries. This country had tlie requisite climate, soil and lands to produce the 0:10,000,000 pounds or wool or all kinds used yearly by the American mills. To produce the neee.-,-sary amount of wool would require HQ 000,000 sheep. The total number now was 3G,000;OGO, leaving a dericit of about 73,000,000. The Sheep Stock. The domestic growers now produced riboutTH72.000,i00 pounds annually, leav ing feome 352,000,000 to lie supplied. With ::deauat- nroleciion the sheep stock of tr.c Unlt-d Suites could within Tour years be increased bo as to yield all the wool consumed here. Some $70,000,000 was now being paid abroad each year for wool. Adequate protection would give Ameri can fanners this sum annually for labor. He referred to he Wilson-Uorman law as the most disastrous measure ever aimed at the wool industry. Under it the number of sheep had de-crcasedal)out3,0i)0,00oannually,and60,-000,000 Jn value, in three years. Last year some 7 1,000,000 pounds or wool were imported from Australia, and about 17, 000,000 from South America. He suggested that Australian unwashed wool, which was equal to any other washed wool, be classified as washed wool, so as to put it en tlie same rooting with other wools or the world. He would place a tariff of 12 cents on all merino wools, except Australian, on which a rate of 24 cents was desired, be cause of its shrinkage" qualities. The woolgrowers desired the "skirting" clause of the present law dropped. If this was done it would give employment to thousands of American wool 1 sorters and keep a million dollars annually at home which now went abroad. On washed merino they desired a tarirf double that on unwasiad, and on scoured wool treble the duty on unwashed. Australian wool could lie placed on board ship at Melbourne at 9 cents per pound, and this was the wool the Ameri can farmer had to compete with. South American Wool. Asked ir a law or the kind he proposed would not keep Australian wool out of the country, he replied that IT it should it would prrve beneficial. In case it did, we could take wool from South America and build up a tradcwith those countries which in return would take our products. Australia never took anything from us. He argued in ravor or sik-ciHc duties, saving that the advalorem system was "the most damnable system evei proposed by a set of rascals:" He a.-ked prohibitory duites on foreign ragsandsimddy About 18,000,000poui.ds or shoddy per year were now imported, which was equal to about 51,000,000 pounds oT wool. American manufacturers bad been drien to the use of shoddy in order to compete with the cheap foreign manufactured articles, imported. He was against "wool tops" paying the suite duty as scoured wool. They should pay higher taxes, being really wool in the first grade of manufacture. Congress, ne said, should, if possible, at the present session, pass a bill with one section, declaring that all articles impoi ted .after the first day of the firstsession of tlie Firty-nrth Congress shall ho subject to the rates or duty prescribed by any tariff bill which may become a law during that ses sion, when such rates are higher than the existing law, and that no article .shall be withdrawn Tor consumption except upon the execution r,r a bond to the United States, with sureties approved by the proper collector of the port of. entry, Tor the payment of such increased rates of duty. Mr. Theodore Justice or Philadelphia, a dealer in all grades of wool, spoke for the consumers, who, be said, had been in jured by free "wool. In one year there was a loss by this schedule alone, to the American people, or ?420,000,000. The loss to mill hands and laborers by free wool had been about $85,000,000, dur ing the last year. The woolgrowers of New York, he said, had lost on an average or $430 per annum, while saving on cloth ing about $8. PATENT OFFICK UP TO DATE. Report Showing That Examiners Have llroben the Record of Work. Commissioner of Patents Seymour yester day issued a report on the work of the examining divisions up to the close of the day on December 31,1890. Itsbowsthat for the first time, since the business of the orfice reached anything like its present proportions, every examiner had completed cases in his hands up to December 1, and some ot them to a considerable later date. This was the result or a special effort on the part of the Commissioner to ex pedite movements in the progress of. patents through the department and tlie success of the examiners is very gratify ing to nlm. When the last report was made several of the divisions were two and three months behind, and one as much as six months. -Furthermore, the situation was not then as unfavorable as it had been on several pre vious occasions. Tlie total number of applications in hand for action at the date of the report was 8,045, and the total number allowed and awaiting in the office or the publication division the payment of the final fee of $20, was 7,809. The total number of patents issued dur ing the year was 21,807; of designs, 1,445; trade marks, 1,813; labels, 3. There were Gl patents re-issued. The peojaHj People's Dr. Walker 1411 Penn.

JRemor.se Over Wreck of His Once Happy Home Prompted the Deed Hied Instantly. Wrilliam II. Lewis, a colored man, thirty one years old, shot and instantly killed himseir yesterday afternoon at his home. No. 1014 Iteeves street northwest. The bullet buried itself in the tissues of the heart, and barely a gioan crossed tlie suicide's lips berore death came. Whisky caused the deed. Lewis had been on a prolonged spree since the holi days began, and since Friilaj of last week had been constanUy under the influence or liquor, despite the entreaties of his wife and friends to sober up. Together witli his wire, Hattic Lewis, hehad accumulated a cons;derable quantity or household effects since their marriage more than two years ago, and had a very pleasant home at 1915 It street north west. Gradually, however, the ornaments and furniture disappeared and the money was spent for whisky. Yesterday the wife and drunken husband were compelled to seek shelter at the home or Mrs. Lewis' grandmother, Hester Jackson, on Keeves street, where the suicide took place. Kemorse, on account or the wreck ' wrought in his home, bn.ught Lewis to a standstill yesterday, and lie sobbingly prom ised to return to work this morning. He had been employed ns a driver by W. B. Moses & Sons during the past two yeirs, and though known as a hard drinker, he has been regarded by the firm as an effi cient stable man. Lewis had not been seen by his employers since Friday last, but a visit yesterday secured for him a promise of work this morning, and he leturned to his home shortly berore 3 o'clock seemingly in jubilant spirits. A Tew minutes later he went into a small bed-room on the second floor of the house to change his clothes, saying to his wire as he closed the .door, "I, am going away, Hattie, and I won't come back any more." An instant later the report of a pistol was heard. The wire and si.ster-in-law, Mrs. Julia Williams, rushed into the room and found Lewis lying on the bed with a" slight wreath of smoke curling up rrom his shirt, which had been ignited by the riash or the pistol. The weapon, a small arfair, or the bull dog pattern, had fallen from his hand, and lay upon the floor. With a gasp the man was dead. The screams of the women aroused the neighborhood, and soon a crowd of ex cited people had gathered about the house. Policemen Lightroot and Foley, or the Second precinct, cleared the house of curious sight-seers until the arrival of Coroner llammett. The coroner thoroughly investigated the arrair and deemed an inquest unnecessary. W. 11. Lewis, sr., the rather or the dead man, who lives at 226 Twelfth street southeast, was notified and visited 'the house last night. He could give nofuither explanation than that drink caused his son to take his lire. Lewis, when a churchgoer, attended ser vices at the Mount Vernon Baptist Church, oT which at one time he was an active member. It is proliable that the funeral services will be conducted by Rev. George W. Lee, pastor of this church, though as yet no arrangements have been completed by the members or the family. TATJKKD OF THE TREATIES. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Considered Several Conventions. The timeorthc session or the Senate Com mittee on Foreign Relations yesterday was occupied IntheconMderationofthc extradi tion treaties with the Orange Free State and the Argentine Itepublic, with whom the United States have never had any ex tradition agreement. The conventions laid berore the com mittee were almost identical. They pro vided Tor the extradition of f ugitiives f rom justice charged with the commission ot crimes which this country holds to be ex traditable. The usual precautions are taken to prevent the extradition or men charged with political orrcnBes only. A ravorable report was ordered to be made on the treaties at the next executive session.

PETITION OF MARINE BAND Strong Appeal by Friends of Prof. Fanciulli'.s Players Secretary Herbert Is Opposed to the Plan Publicly Advoeuted by Supporters of the Great Organization. The Middlerord Brass Band, of Middle ford, Mil., is exceedingly anxious to fur nish the nwsurtQ .which the nabobs shall gaily trip at the I naugural Ball on the night of March 1. Soalsois Prof. Faneiulli.wlth his finely drilled and famous Marine Bund. Thecommlttceonmusic, which haschargo of the whole question or securing a com petent musical. program for the inaugural ceremonies, is in libjectr ignorance of the location or the' town ot Middlerord, for the very good reason that the map makers neglected to note that burg upon the chart. At any rate the village is the home of a full-ricdgcd brass band, whose individual members would lie 'willing to sneri rice any slight personal discomfiture in coming to Washington, for the privilege and honor of blowing their instruments while the in augural party goes through the two-step, landers, quadrille and waltz. It the question of selecting proficient musicians for the inaugural ceremonies lay in a decision between these two possible extremes or musical talent, the Middlerord Brass Band, and Prof. FanciulH'sHilayers, the music committee, or which Judge J. C. Chancy is chairman, would have what is commonly called a "sort snap." But right here the troubles ot the com mittee fairly begin, for there are over 100 other musical organizations whose members are ready and willing to make a like sacrii ficc. They range rrom the Pumpkin Hollow Fiddlers to the great Germania Orchestra or Philadelphia, with 150 instruments, and which was employed to furnish the music a't the Harrison inauguration eight yearn ago. All of these numerous applications have been duly placed on file, witli tlie com mittee's secretary, Mr. Edward A. Kreid ler, and will receive proper consideraUon when the time coima. Using Their Influence. Some of the applicants have even gone so far as to addressurgent communications to Major McKlnley, suggesting ther services for the inaugural ball, wnilcthe more .pru dent and foresiglited have written direct to Hon. Marcus Aurclius Hauna, Cleveland, Ohio, asking that gentleman to use his in fluence in securing them the much-coveted position. Pniortunately, however, these requests have never gone lurtherthnn into the hands or that gentleman's private secretary, who has readdressed themlothe committee here. Nearly all have written to their Congress men and rriends in Washington upon the subject, the letters finding their resting place in the files of the music committee. So that some organizations each have a half-dozen or more applications on file. Such are soineor the trial and vicissitudes of the committee on music, but theie are others. The friends of Pror. Fnnciulli are highly indignant because- the committee thinks of hiring nny otherthan the Marine Band, and has opened the job to free competition. Many copies of a petition condemning the action in strongest terms are being sent around, and a largo number or signatures have been secured and will be presented to the committee. A meeting or the subcommittee was held yesterday to prepare specifications, which will be senttonlI,uppllcants,advislngthem of the terms with which they in list comply. The requirements or the committee,! n brief, are that all bids must be in not later than Saturday, January 23: the musicians must be compptcntantirirst-classin every respect, and uniformed. .Nothing will be provided for them by the 'committee except chairs. Xews at Headquarters. The successful bidders must furnish a military band or slxty-rive pieces, and an orchestra or 1 2D pieces. Besides the in auguration day 'program, three concerts must be given, on the 5th, and two on the 6th, each to bcs two hours longand the promenade concert on the night or the 5th, which may include dancing, may be longer. Bond will be required in the. sum or $5,000, that the terms of the contract will be fully complied with in every respect. The committee reserves the right to re ject any proposals, and the lowest bidder will by no means be awarded the contract unle.ssit is shown that their music will be or the best. The merits and ability or the contestants willbeeonsideredin makingthe selection. Executive Chairman Bell, of the inau guration committee, went yesterday to the Pension Office, accompanied by Messrs. Rush, Marshall and J. G. Hill, architect. His object was to examine the interior, with a view to the location or the band and oichestra. It is about .decided that the brass music-makers will occupy the last balcony, but thestation or the orchestra is in doubt. It will not be practicable to place the music under the ceiling, as suggested, owing to the echoes created, as shown by last night's experiment. Mr. Bell also will confer with Col. John M. Wilson, superintendent ot public build ings and grounds, upon the subject or the White House reviewing stand. The structure will be made to hold probably 1,000 guests. Cnairman Wright, or the public comfort committee, has accommodations for 16, G24 visitors; 158 windows, and table board orrered for 7,300 people. Col. Holmes, ot the Third Regiipent, New Jersey Militia, has written that he will bring 400 or his men here March 4. Committees Meet. Cljnirman Bell, or the inaugural commit tee, had two distinguished visitors yester day morning, Hon. Joseph H. Manley, of MalneT and Col. W.

CONSULTATION FREE. CORCORANS WERE WES'NERS. Basketball Game Wuk Won by Score of 4 to 3. Carroll Institute gymuasinm was the scene last night ot the first meeting .this season of the Corcoran Cadets and Queer Wheelmen iu a leugue game of basketball and resulted in a victory for the soldier boys by the close score of 4 to 3. All available space wax taken up by the spectators, and it was one of the largest crowds to witnensa game this season. The witnesfes of the contest were not disappointed in any way, as it was one of the fastest and cleanest, well-played games of the series. But little unnecessary rough playing was indulged in and in consequence it was a free passing and open game, and the young players deserve credit Tor the ex cellence of their work. Davis, of the Corcorans, was Injured in the first Inning, but he pluckily stayed in the game and played it out. For the Corcorans Guista, Walters, and Boulay excelled in playing, and Becker, Tierney.and Von Boekman were prominent in good, nll-around work on the Queer team. At the end ot the first inning the Queers led with two points to Soldiers' one. The latter tied this in the second and won in the third on two goals more. The Queers scored only one more. For the Corcorans, Davis, at enemy's goal, carried orf th honors, landing three, two or them very difficult goals; Joe Dodge one, and Becker, ol the Queers, scored on two pretty throws.
