Wasiuhotok, D. C., Sept. 11.?Ia tbo
%ays and means committee to-day the
entire time was devoted to listening to
arguments by the iron and steel manufacturers
of Amurica for the retention
of the present dnties on iron, steel and
tin manufactured in this country. Mr.
Joseph Wharton, ot Philadelphia, vice
president of the American Iron and
i-toel Association, acted as chairman of
the delegation, which was composed of
the following gentlemen: ueorge n.
Ely, of Cleveland, Ohio, president of
tbo Wostern Iron Ore Association;

Mr. Wharton was the first speaker.
He said that there were 450,000 persons
ongagod in all capacities In the manufacture
of Iron aad steel, who represented
a population of about 2,250,000
who were dependent upon this industry
for a livelihood. He insisted that the
present tariff waa the best which had
ever been imposed and that agger its
operation prices had bean., reduced to
the consumer. "We wantiorfshango,"
added he. "I believe the prafctjfo of
changing the tariff is ono of thefiilOBt
noxious things known to bnsinesvintercsts.

.Mr. Wharton said that all the iron1 and

ftr. Wharton underwent * severe
la-examinatlon at the hands of Mr.
ner, (Dem., Georgia), who onvored
to "elicit the statement that
great advance of the iron and steel
pusiness in this country'waa duo more
to natural advantages 5 and Improved
machinery than to the tariff, but Mr.
Wharton took the position that it was
due to both causes Shd -went further
and declared that even with the natural
advantages and improved machinery,
the home producers could not compete
with the foreigners on eqnal terms
without the aid of the tariff.
Daring the adroit examination carried
on by Mr. Turner the speaker was
asked what advantage be wanted at the
hands of Congress over his foreign competitor.
"Well," answered Mr. Wharton, "we
will say,, 'for'instance, that during a
period of turmoil between this and a
oreign country our army wm qeneralled
by one of this committoo, wo as Americans
would expect and demand of that
general that he would use every moans
in his power, every strategy which
would accrue to the advantage of the
"But this la not a question of war,"
said Mr. Turner.
"I think It is, air." [Laughter.]
"How much advantage do you want?"
again inquired Mr. Turner.
"Well, now, if you had been tfhero

"I waa thare, but unfortunately on
hp other side." [laughter.] "And 1
found that thoy had quite a decided advantage.
I hope you do not want as
much," replied the representative from
Georgia. _
The next speaker was Hon. George
II. Ely, of Cleveland, 0., president
Western Iron Ore association, who
maintained that $182,000,000 was invested
In the iron ore Industry of the
country, employing abont 38,000 men.
and that a reduction of the tariff would
bo rninous to those industries.
Col A. M. Shook, of Nashville, pleaded
with the oommlttee to postpono any
tction on the tariff during the present
financial condition.
John Lambert, of Jollet, Ills.; Wra.
K. Sterling, of Chicago; James Sodden,
Birmingham, Ala.; Mai. G. M. Laughlin,
Pittsburgh; Cyrus Elder, of Johnstown,
alao appeared in behalf of their
rospeotlve companies. Each of thorn
stated that their business'was in a very
bad condition at present and attributed
the cause to the fear on the part of the
operators of adverse tariff legislation.
Thoy appealed to the committee not to
disturb the tariff schedules, but to announce
to the public that no action
would be taken, and thoy claimed that
business would rerivo almost instantly.
Thu committee 'then adjourned until
10 o'clock to-morrow morning after a
session ol about eight bourn.
Hopes that a Vote will bo Renoltoil on tbe
Unpen 1 Illll by tJlo First of October.
Washington, D. 0., Sept 31.?While
all outward appearances indicate that
tbe situation in tbe senate is unchanged
and that the present dobate on the repeal
bill may continue indefinitely,
there arc certain facta apparent to the
Initiated which go to show that the end
is in eight, and there is a strong probability
that the senate will be
either ready to adjourn or to take up
other legislation by t|ie first day
ol October. This conclusion is
not reached as the rosalt of statements
givon out for eQect by the advocates of
the bill, but it is believed to be justified
by tbe circumstances of the situation.
Very few of even the stannchest of the
silver advocates any longer claim a majority
of the senate upon the subject of
repoal. They are hopofal of eocuring
the adoption of an amendment which
will give recognition in some form to
silver, and thuB avoiding the necessity
of talcing a vote upon the repeal bill as
it stands. There are certain votes which
they hope to secure for an amendment
of this character.
It may be stated definitely that no
1_._J ? ...
urnuuu.au UCWCUllUatmu w utiuuatgt
baa boon reached, and the probabilities
now are that thore will be no extended
oflort, aftor the . legitimate debate lias
been exhausted, to prolong tbe session
of tbe senate,.or postpone tho time for
action upon the bill. Tho opponent*
of the bill recognize that the time is not
propitions for a filibuster, and that even
if the; should attempt to hold off a
vote beyond tho legitimate time, the
circumstances would all be against
them. Tho; appreciate that tbe; are
placed at a tremendous disadvantage
by the fact that there are no other important
.bills before the senate, and
that they are thus compelled to consume
all the timoof the senate sessions.
The calendar is so bare now that, bat
for the repeal bill, tho senate could
odjourn to-morrow.
Another circumstance which they are
called upon to face is the fact that they
are at the beginning of a congress with
no possibility of forcing an adjournment
if the majority should hold out
for continuance until the 4th of March,
1895. .
There are a sufficient number ot
speeches announced to consume the
time of tho senate for probably two
weeks. After that it will be necessary
to either go over the same ground in
speeches, begin actual filibustering operations,
or let tho voting begin. It
will rest largely with tho southern opponents
of tho bill to decide whether
tho vote shall be postponed or
takifa. It is safe to say that if they or
tbe majority of them decide against
a filibuster it will not be undertaken.
Senator Fugh's speech to-day gives
some reason for bolleving that tbe
southern senators may be disposed to
hold out indefinitely 1WIW defont of
the bill, but other southern senators

The Vaj Occiiple<L- bj Two Speakers,
Senator Toiler Attacks tho Uaukent.
WAsmjtGTON, D. 0., Sept. 11.?In the
.senate to-day the greater part of the
time was occupied by Senator Pngh
(Ala.) in opposition to the repoal of the
Sherman law. He was followed by Senator
Teller (Col. j, also, against tho bill,
who concluded his speech begun on
Saturday last. The silvor men neither
Saturday nor to-day followed the tactics
Inaugurated early last week of insisting
upon tho presence of a quorum, and ap
parently the leeiing ooiwoon me imiuua
and opponents of repeal is much better
than it has bopu heretofore during the
session. Both Mr. Pagh and Mr. Teller
discussed the question in a calm and
dignified manner, and tbey were accorded
most respectful attention.
Mr. Dolph (Rep.,, Oregon,) presented
a printed petition oi the conference of
the Methodist Episcopal church in Oregon
for the repeal of the Gonry act.
Mr. Stewart (Hep., Nevada,) submitted
a resolution providing for a committee
of five senators to ascertain and
report whether any senator was interested
as stockholder or otherwise in the
national banks. Mr. Hill, of New York,
opposed the resolution on the ground
that it was uncalled for and unnecessary
and a reflection on senators. The resolution
being objected to went over until
Mr. Teller in bis speech asserted, and
ho believed it could be demonstrated,
that if it bad notbeeu for a preconcerted
eflort in the money centre of the
country to prevent it, the first of September
would have seen better times in
the linances of the country than the
people wore exnerieucing to-day. It
was admitted now bv all tbe great financial
authorities of New York that the
panic was over. He met one day recently
a gontleman of national reputation
and said to him, "When will this
panic be over. ?"
Tbat gentloman replied, "When the
men who calloil it on call it oft The
bankors of New York called it ou; when
they got ready to call it off it wilt
coino off."
Thecalllngof Congress did not relieve
the country: in fact the condition became
worse from the time Congress was
called in extraordinary session.
Mr. Teller said he would atsomeothor
time give to the senate his conception
of the came for the recent distressed
condition. In his opinion it was due to
legislative misconduct.
Mr. Teller next directed himself to
stock operations. A New York psper
bad published daily for somo time the
depreciation in tbe value of stocks or
the destruction of values occasioned by
tho Sherman law, as the paper said.
The paner had finally got the amount
up to $700,000,000. In his opinions
great many stocks were selling on the
market to-day for more than they were
worth. He cited Northern Pacific,
which he said had fallon from 70 to 17.
It was said all tbe great owners connected
with it unloaded when it was 70.
That company had $250,000,000 of indebtedness;
$75,000,000 held in Germany,
a great amount owned in Holland
and England.
"Don't you think," asked tbe Colors
ado senator, "that when a great corporation
like that collapses and is left
with a debt so great that its most enthusiastic
friends cannot hope that it
' jf< . *?;
-'a' .?'!V ? i;'. ~1
can over pay, that finances in this mfl
country might be diitorbed ai well as II
in Europe?" ?
He then instanced Erie & Beading
stocks and said:
"This disturbance did not come from OP'
the Sherman law. It came from the
misconduct of officials."
Mr. Teller said he did not mean to say
criminal misconduct, but that they did CUp
not deal fairly with their investors. L11
It behooved congreiB, Mr. Teller
said, when it came to legislate upon this t,b?
?ui'?? n_A .1 -1 ft,. A...1 LlBa
and if within its power to remove the
evil. He did not claim that congress
could touch tho quogtion of dealing in ...
stocks. That was one of the evils that (,11ft
had to be allowed to exist
Mr. Voorheea here said if agreeable
to the senator from Colorado, ho would Tho
move an executive session. th
Before yielding to that motion Mr.
Teller replied that he had roached a 1
point where be could quit for the pros- to
ent, and he would take up another tI[
branch of the inblect some other day.
After a short executive session, the "
senate adjourned. ae

Paris, Sept. 11.?The irritation ot
Franco against England seems to increase
day by day. First tho governnent
was urged to assert itsoU against
England's interference in tho Siamese
[uestiou; then it was claimed that at
hte opening of tho chambers the govirnment
must make the powor of Franco
elt by raising the Egyptian ghost again,
ind now the French press has found
reeh cause to attack England and i*
ingrily harping against the obstacles
rhicb, it is claimed, the Nigor Com*
>any has placed in the way of French
Thor? nro thonfi tinkind enonch to flav
bat these attacks npon the part ol the
Trench press, directed agalnst?ngland,
erve, intentionally or unintentionally,
o turn the attention of the people from
be really irritating reviews, sham batles
and visits to frontier fortresses now
icing indulged in by tho German cmleror,
with the crown prince of Italy at
lis side. That is really where the shoe
linches, and it will take more than the
isit of the Russian fleet to Tonlon to
lissipate the angry reflections which
ire nowagitatinz the thinkers oi France.
Great preparations are already being
nade here and at Toulon for the recap*
ion of the visiting Russians, and the
mlitical drums will undoubtedly be
leaten the loudest in the effort to
Irown with Franco-Russian glolocation
the- sound of that
ierman defiance made by Emperor
Yilliam at Metz, when he boldly aserted
that Alsace-Lorraine would be
teld forever by the German sword,
Chole words hit'the bull's eye in Geraany
and in prance, and the ((hot
ichoed around the world. No amount
if denial from official or unolflcilil
ources will alter tbe fact that the *.
leace of Europe is in danger and that
natters aro becoming so strained that
t will soon be a case .of "shut up or
Ight." ^
