While speaking on the tariff bill vester
terday Hon. Wm. L Wilson was interrupt
ed by Mr. Doolittle, of Washington, who
•aked if be meant, to compare the intelli
gence of the American laborer with the in
telligence of the slave laborer of the South
before the war. Mr. Wilson replied that
na one with intelligence above that of the
•lave laborer would ask such a question —
[Long continued laughter and applause on
Democratic side.) Mr. Wilson soon after
ward slated that he wished to be courteou*
ia everything, and he therefore withdrew
hie remarks about the gentleman fmm
Washington. At the coaclu-lon of the
speech, Mr. Doolittle arose and stated that
be attributed the remark of Mr. Wilson in
reference to bimseli as due to his (Mr. Wi|.
son's) association with slave-labor intelli
gence. and he therefore accepted the apolo
gy. [ Derisive cheers on Democratic side ]
Mr. Wilson iu reply said he hoped the gen
tleman from Washington would not make
kirn feel that the apology was due more to
himself (Mr. Wilton) than to the gentleman
from wMhiagton [Democratic laughter.]
The House of Representative*, re **sem
>ling last Wednesday, spent four days in
lleness for waut of a quorum—tbe Re
publican* and a few anti-tariff-reform Dera
>crata refusing to vote and a large number
)f Democrats being absent. A quorum
roted Monday and a resolution reported by
:he committee on rules and amended on
motion of Mr. Wilson was adopted provid
ing for general discussion on the tariff bill
throughout this week and debate under the
Sve-mmute rule for two week* following,
tiid that voting on the bill shall begin ou
Lhe 29th. Hon. W. L. Wilson then opened
the debate in a brilliant and convincing
•peech, with which, »avs the Baltimore Sun
correspondent, '"hi* Democratic colleagues
were more than satisfied.” W ilhoUt slop
ping to enquire into the causes that had
brought about the present prostration of in
iustry in thi-* country, he said that if there
?ver was a time when the burden of taxa
tion should be lightened it was at a time
when men were struggling for the nece-sa
rie* of lif-, a lime when trade was held in
the puraly»i* <»f * commercial cri-*i*.
The tariff of 1890 represent* 1 not only a
high and liberal protection, but it repre
sented all that greed and selfishness ami
rapacity dared to demand of the American
people (Applause <»n the Democratic side )
l'o iHu-urate, .Mr. Wilson showed a piece id
cloth worth about 32 cents a yard, on which
the act of 1890 placed a tax of 303 per cent.
$3 tax on $1 worth of goods. So that the
poor woman in New York or anywhere else
in thi* country who bv earning 50 cent* a
day at her labor is able to buy one dollar’s
worth ot tbi« material, must work six days
longtr to make the McKinley taxes to take
it out of the cu.-tom house. (Applause on
the Democratic aiJe.) To day, notwith
standing the high rale intentionally left in
this bill, there had been a call lor the wool
en m .nufacturer* of thi* country to meet in
New York on Wednesday next to protest
against a bill which leaves them a 40 per
cent, tax on their product*.
Tbe English landlords, who. when famine
wa* slaying its terso thousand* in Ireland,
mad - a protest against relieving food from
taxation are the prototype* of the gentle
men who will meet in New York the day
after to-morrow. (Applause nn the Demo
cratic aide )
Now when disease and discontent, when
consumption and pneumonia and grip are
•talking abroad in all the land, when there
are million* oi men, women and children
incurring daily ri-k of death and daily ri»k
of disease and permanent loss of their pro
•luctive energies, when thousand and tens <d
thousand* are fighting the cold in their
nightly •lumber* brcause there is no heat in
the tax put on blankets, these gentlemen
who made the law of 1883 and of 1890 are to
meet in New York city to protest against
your doing anvthing for the relief of the
American people from this cruel, inhuman
system of taxation. (Applause on theD«m
ocratic side.)
Mr. Wilson discussed elaborately the rea
sons fur placing wool, iron ore ami coal on
the free list. Of the question of wage* he
said, in part: The general productivenes*
of every country determiura the wage* ol
the laboring people of that country. 1 lie
general intelligence of the laboring people
of a country a!*o in equal mea-ure deter
minis the wages of the laboring people ot
ilnt country. IKe have higher nominal
daily wages in this country than elsewhere,
fi st, bec*n-a we are a great new Country in
ail era of development ; and. secondly, be
cause we have the ino-t intelligent, self
re- peeling laboring men in all the world, and
tov industry thaicintmt maintain it-eifex
eept by lax itinn on the people of the coun
irv, instead ot increusii g the rale of wages
to the extent ot protection, diminishes the
wage rate of all the laboring people of Ihe
country (Applause on the Democratic
side ) Every industry that lean* upon lax
•tom for its support, that calls upon the law
to make the consumer* of its product* pay
more than they would otherwise be obliged
to p ty f..r them, whatever we may call it, is
t pauper industry supported by the sell
•upporting imlusiri.a of the country. (Ap
pUuse on the Democratic side.) After
speaking two hour*. Mr IKiUou became fa
tigued and suspended, concluding Tuesday.
The directors of the a-iju'tnient company
which wa* organized by the Mercantile
r... • ...I I liiwiai t PmiinanV tif Il.il 11 lllllfe
to ••fleet a .settlement of the alleged Slate
debt of West Virginia, have prepared a
plan of settlement, which has been submit
ted to ihe advisory b *ard of the creditors of
West Virginia. The director* urge the ne
ces-itv of an absolute guarantee that all the
certificates issued by Virginia to represent
the amount of West Virginia's indebtedness
(which certificate*, they say, exceed theju-t
proportion for the latter S?tate) will be
promptly surrender*d in exchange for the
new bonds West Virginia may issue to dis
charge the debt to Virginia. ‘ It is evi
dent,” say they “that no progress toward a
settlement can be made until the creditors
are willing to trust to the honor and good
faith ol two sovereign Slates mating with
each other about a matter of such public
importance, and it is also evident that \ ir
giuia should not move to bring about a set
tlement with West Virginia it the negotia
tion* must be based on a guarauUe, express
or implied, tual West Virgin.a snail pay
a stipu ated percentage.” i'liey do not be
lieve it possible to devise a plan, likely to
succeed that will be more definite and pre
cise than the one submitted, which is as
‘ First—The adju-tment company will
offer to surrender ali the certificates which
may be deposited Under the agreement oi
October 16. 1893, in exchange tor such an
amount ot new bonds or other avails as
'Vest Virginia provides to discharge her
proportion of the interstate debt.
‘Wound—A tender of all the deposited
certificates shall accompany a petition to
the Legislature of Virginia to authorize a
conimis-ion to bring about a settlement with
West Virginia.
•‘Third —All que-tions touching the ap
portionment of the new tv-nds or avails be

shall he determined by a tribunal of three,
one |o be appointed by the advisory board,
one to be appointed by the adjustment com

yung ladies in society. Although only
about twenty-six years of age, she has, ow
ing to the death of her mother, for more
than a third of her short life presided at
the elegant residence of her father. A tall,
graceful and commanding figure, a wealth
of dark hair, eyes at once soft and dark, a
mouth with pretty curves, a face that in
speaking or in repose possesses ever a sweet
expression, all these, coupled with a certain
dignity, yet simplicity of manner, are the
rare gifts ot the woman who will adorn the
home ol Senator Faulkner at the National
Capitol. In the midst of all the fl'iod of
I uhlicity which ha* lately dashed over her
life she has walked serenely wiih her own
gentle composure quite unruffl d. Living

in the midst of a larg® 8ra8Sy 'aWD> which
slopes to the water’s edge. There a small
pavilion stands lor the accommodation of
boatmen or bathers. In this true home her
artistic tastes are everywhere exhibited in
those magic touches which are needed to
transform mere furniture into objects of j*»y
and beauty, and make of each room a charm

with the gorgeous gifts which friends have
delighted to shower upon this fortunate
bride, rich in love, as in all else that fortuns
