in opjKwiii^' the schedule argued that
liie ?>/ the l)ill would not benefit
tin-con.-iii'iiTM of wool. The passage of
this bill woiiM absolutely destroy the
main \v?h>I raising industry of the country.
At ti"- Miration of Mr. Mills, of
Texas, it ax'r?*e(I that a vote should
betaken on the free wool clause at 1
o'clock to- lay.
Mr. .\<laiii!?, <>f Illinois, spoke in favor
0/ vi m/mi to Januaiy 1, 1889, the time
wlien th?- free wool schedule shall go
I into eflect.
I .Mr. ,\! n. of Mnssacf uisetts, sent to
the clerk "It^k and had read a letter
from .Mr Whitman, President of the
.\ati<?n:.! Association of Wool Manu/m-tiircr.-,
stating that the wool lnanufai-tmvrs

Whitman, "i? dependant on the growth
in this . 'iiiutry of their principal raw
.Mr. Jackson, of Pennsylvania, bore
testimony that wool manufacturers of
Philadelphia were uncompromisingly
opnuscd to free wool.
.Mr. Kerr, of Iowa, called attention to
the fact that the reduction of the duty
on wool in Iss;5 had resulted in an increase
of revenue to the extent of $11,000,000,
and he therefore favored a
HtTt'UN to tiik tariff
of 1S?17. Mr. Anderson, of Iowa, said
that the self-constituted champions of
American labor, by declaring that the
hill was an assault upon American industry,
were presenting a false issue to
the country.
Mr. Kelly, of Pennsylvania, said he
saw from the Record that on Saturday
lust the member from Krie, Mr. Scott,
had indulged iu an unusually reckless
fftiifanmade, in the course of which, after
referring to him (Mr. Kelly) by
name, the member had said that "neither

what nature has not given him?those
which gentlemen recognize both in public
and private life as the beat types of
trui' manhood." If that member's public
ami private life were governed by the
traits to which ho alluded it was matter
of great hapniness to him (Mr. Kelly)
that nature did not bestow them upon
iiim, and if the member alluded to those
traits which permitted him in pursuit of
his own advantage to pervert and falsify
statements made by a gentleman, or
which, according to his code, required a
man who was forced to bear a conversation,
nil the essential points of which
were falsified and perverted by a party
to such conversation, to abstain from exposing
such falsification and perversion
he i.Mr. Kelly) humbly thanked his Creator
tor having protected liiui from the
domination of such traits.
After a brief argument by Mr. Breckinridge,
of Kentucky, in favor of the
free wool clause, .Mr.* Wilkins, of Ohio,
moved to strike wool from the free list.
<?n a division, the vote stood 93 to 122
and the announcement was received
with applause on the Democratic side.
Mr.Sowden,of Pennsylvania, and Mr.
Wilkins and Mr. Koran, of Ohio, were
the only Democrats voting in thcvatlirinHtiv.t
u'LSIn \lr Aml??>nn Trt urn
voted in the negative. Mr. Uutterworth,
of Ohio, wished to effect un arrangement
by which an aye and nay
vote ini^lit be taken in the House, but
.Mr. Mills declined to comply. Tellers
were then ordered and Mr". Wilkins*
motion was defeated, 102 to 120.
Mr, Mills offered an amendment,
striking out the clause imposing a duty
<>f ;M) per cent advalorem on carpets and
car|>ctings, and inserting a clause iinposing
a duty of 0 cents per square yard
on hemp, of 20 per cent advalorem on
floor matting and floor mats, exclusively
of vegetables, of 40per cent advalorem
on all other carpets and carpeting, druggets,
boekings, mats, rugs, screens, covers,
hassocks, bedsteads of wool, flax,
common or parts of either, or other material.
Mr. Lloyde, oi Massachusetts, offered
an amendment imposing a duty of 10
cento per square foot on cocoa mats and
l.j rents per square yard on cocoa matting.
Lost, .8(1?05.
Mr. Mills' amendment was agreed to.
Mr. Ik)othman,of Ohio, then called up
his amendment ottered sonje daye ago
restoring the taritl'of 1807, and it was rejected
by :t vote of 50 to 'Jo.
On motion of Mr. Mills, of Texas, the
date on which the free wool clause shall
go into effect was fixed as October 1.
IS*\ aud the date of the taking effect of
the woolen schedule was tlxeil as January
1, 1889. This disposed of the woolen
Mr. Mills moved that the paragraph
concerning card cloth be amended so as
to increase the duty from 15 to 20 cents
per H|uure foot, and in the case of sucli
cloth made of tempered steel wire, from
to 40 cents per square foot. Adopted. |
uiiuT committee amendments offered!
by Mr. Mills and adopted stricken

tlxing the duty on kaolin at$l
per ton fur crude and ?2 for China clay
"r wrought kaolin, and placing the duty
on rough marble in blocks and squares
at 40 cents per cubic foot.
This completed the consideration of
the essentially tariff features of the bill
(except in regard to such paragraphs as
have been passed over informally) and
the administrative portion of the measure
wiis taken up.
On motion of Mr. Breckenridee, of
Arkansas, an amendment was adopted
excluding from the provisions of the
section which provides that ad valorem
duties shall include the valuo of cases,
boxes, etc., in which merchandise is imported.

Mr .Wise, of Virginia, moven to in?!U(L
??the repeal the taxes on cigars,
cheroots and cigarettes.
Mr Johnston, of North Carolina,
moved to amend Mr. Wise's motion by
providing for the repeal of all iuternal
on spirits distilled from grain or
/ruit of auy kind; lost, 27 to 136. Wheu
the vote was announced, Mr. Johnston
inquired, in an astonished tone of voice,
which caused much Jlaughter, "What
has become of the Republican party ? I
thought it was going to vote with me." -i
Mr. Yost, of \ irginia offered an amendment
similar in effect to that offered by
Mr. Wise; rejected. 04 to 85.
Mr. Sowden, of Pennsylvania, offered
an amendment abolishing the tax on i
spirits distilled from apples, peuches and
other fruits. Pending a vote the committee
rose. 1
tn (lie Honate.
The Senate proceeded to the consideration
of the fishery treaty in open executive
session, and was addressed by
Mr. Pugh in favor ol its ratification. He
said that the Republican Senators assailed
the treaty, but did not propose
any amendment to it. They onlv pro- 0
posed to exercise the power of rejecting a
it atul of closing the door to further ne- a
gotiations. It was manifest that the
Republican majority was wilfully avoid- 11
iiiL' its constitutional una sworn amy p
ana was placing the Senate before the g
country in a disreputable attitude for u
no other purpose than a supposed politieal
and partisan consideration, llow v
(he asked) could such u party be trusted S
with the custody of political power? b
The people of Kngland, Ireland and j,
Scotland would suffer no injury or derive
any benefit from anything in the &
treaty, so that the Irish voters for whom p
the Republicans were fishing would find
nothing in the rejection of the treatv gj
that would mortify or punish England. .
Mr. Chandler addressed the Senate in "
opposition to the treaty, which he said *
| Mr. Chandler quoted from the speech of ^
Sir Charles Tupper before the Canadian jr
I Parliament, which, he said, libelled the t(
| Republican party. Never before iu the g,
history of the country had the emisa- (j
Ties a foreign government openly en- ??,
gaged in negotiations with one political w
party, and the Senate ought to find a (,
way to teJl them that while American
party strifes were bitter enough they u
must not be made the basis of political |t,
negotiation. fc
It has so happened, he said, that Mr. tt,
IJayard was more anxious from the van- c(
ity of the aged States to be known as
the negotiator of the Bayard-Chamber
lain treaty. This wish and desire to
protect the rightsof American fishermen
and to protect the national honor was
overcome; anil so Mr Chamberlain had tj
suddenly and unexpectedly obtained an
easy victory. Ul

ppeal is to go to a full bench for a new d?
rial, the Winthrop bank produces a Se
ackage of literature which, had it been
ivon out at the time of the trial, would -JJj
ndoubtedly set the men free. It seems fic
3 establish beyond doubt that young G<
tain, lying in a Maine jail, racked his 0,1
rain to concoct some scheme whereby jn(
e could gain a few dollars, even if he $o(

30,000 in paper, which was afterward J
^covered on the payment, in New York De
ity, of ?10,000, although the bank peo- tlx
le never knew just who robbed them. an(
In February, while young Stain was
t the NorriJgewock jail, he confessed ,ufl
> Mr. Mitchell, the olHcor who arrested wa
Lain and Cromwell, that he, his father, a n
romwell and one Gleason, a New York De
urook," did the job. Mitchell had him acc
rite out the confession, and this he Mo
tok to the bank officers, asking at the hjjc
me about the reward. Being promised of
lis if the confession proved true, it was fus
ft lor inspection. The bank people Cri
iund there were some glaring errors, in 1
id so wrote Mitchell, and young Stain coti
>rreeted them, he being all the while in cer
il. Later, the bank folks wrote out waj
lirty questions, which were answered cot
y Stain. Tho whole story was then crit
ritten out, inspected and rejected by pel
le bank. All the letters of Mr. Mitchell, tioi
lose of Stain and all his answers were the
ept, however, and it is the production not
, this late hour of these that causes the inj<
itest sensation. son
Tiie story, as it appears in thepe, and 1
hich relates wholly to Winthrop, is am
most word for word like the so-called the
mfession of the Dexter affair, save that Ho
ic names of towns are changed to fit. eac
he same departure was made for Mid- 1
eld, the same horse Flora, and the me
inie beach wagon are mentioned; that the
le steauicr Star of the East was taken rnai
id the arrival at Gardiner, and the stil
lention of the hotel and bowling alloy ver
id departure from that town are alike cur
i both confessions. veil
Then, simply substituting the names con
f other towns, he tells how he drove Bla
?ar the scene of operations, leaving Dul
le men to do the job, and how, later,
3 took them up again and they lied
om the scene.
In all the details the same and similar A
nguago appears and he puts in the
'inthrop account whole sentences into Si*c
e mouth of Cromwell which appear A
the Dexter story, as having been ?T
tered by his father. Then, in the trnj
atter of instructions, which he claimed .
is father jrave him, there is no material 1101
fierenco in the two accounts. In both, to-i
her* he says his father told him not rivi

iknowleuged that Stain had wiitten to 1 ^

Bowles since confessing, hna been >
' kept in the United States Marshal's
' office und allowed to sleep, instead of on <
a plunk, upon Commissioner Hoyne's :
lounge, which was brought in for that j
purpose. J
Two pleasant looking women were ?
brought into the crowded court room
and given seats behind the desk. Qne
of them was said to be the woman to t
whom Bowles, though a married man,
made love while on his dynamite expedi- 1
tion in Indiana and whoso presence in 1
court brought about the prosecuting and *
hud more than nnj[ body else induced 8
Bowles to confess in order to heud off u v
suit for divorce.
Alex. South, the Aurora brotherhood J
fireman who turned informer, was the {'
first witness called. He was interrupted '
at the very outset by Lawyer David, for *
the defense, moving that all evidence ?
. v.# ? t,_ i *_:?i | 1
concerning iiuoriuur jwwjcb uv duimbu
out, on the ground tlittt bo was not
known to be under investigation. "
David also nuked to have the testimony ?
ot Informer Kelly and Witness Lloyd 1
nullified, because they mentioned none "
of the defendants but Bowles and the 11
evidence was therefore incompetent. ?
The District Attorney contended that it '
would be shown that the dynamite '
was purchased and delivered by some, 1
at least, of the defendants. The court a
let it stand and then Smith was taken "
off the box and J. J. Kelly, Chairman 11
Iloge's cleric, was recaueu to admit mat *
his nauie was Charles Cardell in a flirta- f1
tion he had with two ladies in Chicago 1
in 1881. The name, witness claimed, was
taken by him
purely in* fun. *
Considerable badgering by the lawyers
for the Brotherhood then followed.
Informer Smith was then started again, c
when Lawyer Donohue, for the prison- j
ere, interrupted him with the instruc- 11
tion that he need not answer if lie would c
criminate himself thereby and that he
need not testify unless he desired. Then j
Smith confirmed the case startlinely out- ?
lined on the first day of the trial by the
District Attorney, for the prosecution. a
Smith was retired before the begin- 0
ning of the afternoon session, after hav- a
ing been subjected to a eross-exainina- (
tiou of great length by defendants' counsel.
They failed of their purpose to get t
him to contradict himself. j

Smith testified that his home ia in ?
Aurora, and his occupation a locomotive
fireman on the Chicago, Burlington &
Quincy road. He left the road last Feb- i
ruary, when ttie sinne occurred, ana
had since been supported by the Brotherhood.
He knew all the men under arrest.
Bowles showed him some dyna- c
mite, the first time he had ever seen it h
in his life. Bowles took him out for a t
busrgy rido on tbo occasion. Bowles 0
broke a twig from a treo to perforate a
hole in the dynamite cartridge so that 1
lie could insert a cap. t
Bowles put the dynamite on the track, J
and after we got about a mile and a half i>
away we heard the dynamite go oil. o
When we got to Aurora 1 got out of the c
the buggy and he went on. The next *
day he told mo he would leave another 1
cartridge with me and told me to put it o
on the track, but ho did not call with i;
one. 1
A package was left for me which Covin,
an engineer, at Heck's European s
Hotel, I was told by.Bauereiscn, about a
the 14th of June. It continued dyna- t
mite and caps. Bauereisen said to me: c
"Go and give them a scare to-night." I 1
told him that I would, and I did it. c
Covill gave me the cartridge. I took the f
cartridge that night and went past the *
depot, just below the depot, and a
put it on the track near the i
semaphore. I put one cap in it. t
Pomo imnlc t/i Aurora the same wav and I
fooled around town a little and'then c
went to bed. I saw Baucreisen next day, 3
and he asked me if I had done anything. c
I said I bad. Bauercison then said: "I
thought you had. 1 heard some noise."
Brodericic and Wilson met mo next day
and asked me if I had seen Bowles. I
saw Bowles before I saw them. Bowles
said ho wanted to get some dynamite
and caps. He also told me to find God- f
ding, and I went and found him at Mil- t
ler's shoe store, on Main street. Godding
gave a letter to his wife, and Mrs. Godding ;
went and got me the package which *
contained caps and fuse; which I took c
out. The box also contained dynamite ^
cartridges. I gave the box to Bowles, .
and went into Jack Short's house, on 1
Main street Baucreisen, Bowles, WH- t
son, Broderick and others were there., a
having a glass of beer. They came out- }
side and told me to go to Gooding's and J
net what dyuamite was there. Godding 1
. came along at the time. Godding went c
up to his houso and got out the same t
i box that I found the fuse and caps in. t
It contained dynamite. We took the c
i package up to Brotherhood Hall. One 1
of them took the pacftage away after we 1
had a talk together, but I don't know &
which one it was. <
A conference was held this afternoon i

their counsel.
Hoge anil Murphy were also present. 1
The officials of the two Brotherhoods at I
once assured the railroad men that they 1
had no sympathy with dynamite nor i
i lawlessness in any form. The entire
interview was courteous and cordial 9
throughout, and naturally led to a genii
oral talk concerning the strike and the
i situation as it affected the public and
ine puruco w iuc ntrUKie. ah ngrtrc

of more than 0,000 voters called
upon hiut between Monday afternoon
and Saturday evening. He not only
shook hands with eacii of these men,
but lie addressed each and there
was a remarkable distinctive difference
in the style and matter
of speech. Much of the man's greatness
shines forth in these speeches. In
grace of language, vigor of thought, and
striking suitability to the particular occasion
that calls them forth they can
hardly be surpassed. All are delivered
extemporaneously, the only exception
being the addresses to the railroad men
&n Saturday night, which lie wrote out
in advance for particular reasons.
"The General's best speeches," said
Mr. K. 8. AIcKee, the son-in-law and
private secretary of the General, when
