WASHINGTON, March 11.?Th? Republican
members of the ways ?nd
means committee devoted to-day to momoderation
of the wool schedule of the
..irlff bill and although considerable projhvsi
was made one or two more days
u ill be required ti> finish it. Foremost
in importance of the work done co-day
?a.? the practical readoption of the McKInle.v
rates on wooL Raw wool of clasa
<ne. which Includes merino, down clothing
wool and others of that quality are
made dutiable at 11 cents a pound, wools,
>f class one, including: Leicester, Cataw
a Id and Lincolnshire AC 1U cents a
P and, and the washed wools of these
lasses at ZZ and 24 cents and ffcourcd at
:: and 36 cents a pound.
The McKlnley rate of 32 per cent ad
valorem on wools of the third class, or
carpet wools, is retained
Th?t classification of wools was some?v
hat changed by raising a few varieties
formerly classed as carpet wools to the
clothing wool classes. Among them are
China lambs wool, Egyptian and Morocco.
The American Wool Growers' Association
had aaked for a 12 cent duty on
wools of class one. but the committee
has not approved their request.
The Republican caucus committee of
the senate was in session again to-day
considering the organization of the senate.
The committee is yet quite a distance
from an agreement and it may be
decided to make no attempt to reorganize
the committees for the present. The
tariff situation Is giving the Republicans
some concern. They feel sure that their
Mil can pas.-*, but it 1* now believed that
the debac* is going to be extended in (be
^ nate. It !? known that th<* intention
of the Democrat* is to talk on every subject
In the bill. The delay is regarded by
.Him" Democrats as good party policy.
.\ft?r the schedules of the bill became
known It J* believed th'-re will be a grr.it
Increase of Importation* in order to take
.chantage of duties under the lower
rates. .\rtP.r int' new nut fcwr- hi4.V- Urher?
will a suspension of Imports f.?r
> -Vf-ral months and a consequent failing
t.T In receipts and the bill which wua de
-M-d to increase the revenu^s.th-y say,
. - i rostttr of fact; will abow u decrease.
Th.-> view is taken by quite a number of
l>?mocrats who say It Is their policy to
nav the bill passed but not until aft**r It
AA-i bten thoroughly d!s.us*ed. Without
an active majority In th'* senate the Republicans
will not l?e uble ti? hurry the
measure alomr. The silver Republicans
h ive Indicated that they will not prev-nt
the tariff bill from passing, but are
i' opposed to the policy of delay.
Republican senators now feel that the
r. w Mil will have be amended materially
by the commfrtee on ttnanc* and
iii- senate. It is known that two schedules
will have to be submitted to mem' era
of the rtnano* committee, one being
ihe chemical schedule. Without making
i close examination It is understood thai
- nators think that the rates In some,
ease# higher than the law of lvjt). A*
- n us the new bill Is presented the Republican
members of the finance commfrtee
will begin consideration of It. ?*ven
before It pasaes the house, in order to
h.iv.? It brought before the senate ut an
.irly day.
There was some talk at one time that
the Republican members of the finance
' mxnlttce would be consufted by the
,uy.< and mean. committee while the
l.iiter wan at work on the tariff In order
tin; a measure might be framed wtib-h
v.i.iiid require as little amendment by
the senate as possible. This ha* not
b-vn done, nor was it expected by the
si-nators.
At present the only definite part of the
programme of the Republican fuat'-rs
is to bring the tariff bill before the sen:i
sm - fin as possible and press it with
all possible apeed.
Tin- Republican committee on theaitu;i!i
<n in the senate had a meeting this af'
moon, and bealdes the full i?e?j?erof
the committee there were present
tiie new Republican senators Foraker,
Penrose, Wellington and Piatt, Mason.
Spooner. FairbanU and TIanua. The
inference with the new senator* wa.f for
ti purpose of advising (li"m <?f th?* diftl?ultles
in the way ->r reorganising the

cmmlttee assignments. At present
ii me of in<-w senator* will h:iv commit

they will be without place.

WASHINOTO.V, D.C.. Murrh ll.-The
week Intervening between the close of
the senate executive session and the beginning
of the Fifty-fifth Congress Is
being utilized by members of Congress
In pressing the claims of aspirants for
the coveted positions In the government
service. As at the beginning of ?very
now administration there are numerous
candidates, but unlike similar occasions
In the past there are very few
gifts to dispense. Every avenue for preferment.
except In the more prominent
places, seems to have been effectually
closed by President Cleveland, and tho
expectant Republicans find themselves
confronted by a Chinese wall upon each,
approach to tho departmental service.
it may be stated as a sample that
there are thro'- thousand applications
In the hands of Secretary Alger, pre?ented
before (he fact became known
that ho has not a single ofllce to bestow,
lie has had each letter answered, Informing
the applicant that entrance to
the department can only be had through
tho civil service channel. Then* are
some good places, but these will not be
tilled for several days, except In cases
where la defer will cause embarrasmont.
The heads of departments receive
hundreds of rails daily, many persons
dropping In to pay respects only, while
others are backing their own or some
other application by personal appeal.
There is quite a sprinkling of West Virginia
Republicans in town, some of them
expecting appointments.
The list as gathered ?t the various
hotels Is as follows:
F. C. Reynolds. Keyser; K. II Fitch.
Huntington; A. O. Petty. Charleston;
C. D. Klllott, ltraxton county: Kditor

their normal aspect anil there Is a
marked falling off of the crowds uf public

a brief talk with the President KxRepresentatlve
Coombs, of Brooklyn,

WASHINGTON. 1). C\, March It.?
Mr. If. Clay Kvans. of Tennessee, has
been tendered the office of commissioner
of pensions and in all probability will
accept the appointment.which Is one of
the most important in the departmental
service at Washington outside of the
cabinet offices.
Mr. Kvans Is well Known to public
men throughout the country und has
long been recognised as n leader among
southern Republicans. Jle represented
the <'liuttanooga district in Congress for
several years and in the Harrison administration
was first assistant postmaster
general. T.ater he ran for governor
of Tennessee on th" Itepubllcnn
ticket and made u remarkable run. The
result was In doubt for many weeks
and If was not until after a warm light
before a board appointed to review, the
election that it finally was announced
officially thai 'lovrnor Turwy, bis
hemocratlc opponent. had been reelected.
He was considered for some
(line not unlikely to It.- the sou til's rep.

Mr. Kvans Is a business man and of
conceded executive ability. He Is II

WASHINGTON. March ll.-Prestdent
McKlnley's nominations of the four arnbassadors,
which have been anxiously
awaited for some days. are likely to be
sent to the senate next Tuesday and
thore Is strong probability that the ll*i
will lie as follows:
Ambassador to Great Britain, Col.
John Ilay. of Illinois.
Ambassador l<> France, Gen. Horace
Porter, of New York.
Ambassador to Germany, ex-Governor

Ambassador to Italy. Hon. William P.
Draper, of Massachusetts.
There is strong season to believe that
John A. liOgan. Jr.. whose name has been
prominently mentioned in connection
nJrh the mission to Austria-Hungary,
will not receiv that appointment. It Is
understood, also, that considerable doubt
lias arisen within the last few days t<?

NEW YORK, March 11.?The citizen*'
mass meeting called for the purpose of
endorsing the ratification of the arbitration
treaty between this country and
[JiY-ut Urlluln. at Cooper Union to-night,
Ihroug't the speech of Civil Justice Lynn
was lurucd from a meeting of peace
Into one of turmoil. For a time It appeared
as If tlie police would have to
Interfere to icatore order. Although tin
nccltement was great, the meeting con
eluded without any serious disturbance,
riie trouble started when Judge Lynn
captured the meeting by offering an
amendment denouncing the resolution*
favoring arbitration. President Seth
Low refused to put Judge Lynn'*
amendment to the meeting, and on a
vote being taken on the resolutions, alihougb
declared carried, they were really
voted down.
l*p to the time that Judge Lynn came
forward the audience wildly approved
of the sentiments expresed by Bishop
Potter, Mayor Strong. President Low
and Secretary Falrchlld. Hut in a few
minutes after the civil justice had secured
the floor three-fourths of the audience
had declared their opposition to
the ratification of the treaty.
After the reading of the resolutions,
ludg*- Lynn asked pernii?Hion to speak,
and launched into a hitter attack on
England, which the audience applauded
ioudly. He said:
"To-night the Greeks are defending
Ihelr humble brothers when England
ivlth arms and guns is forcing that unfortunate
people into bondage by coercion
under the Turks. (Applause.)
"A treaty with government that has
permitted the Armenians io be slaughtered
by the thousands (applause): a
treaty with a country that has broken
!>v*ry obligation and violated every
pledge of honor *he ever made."
Jud?e Lynn offered an amendment to
I he resolutions, requesting the senate
to reject the treaty, which was loudly
applauded.
At the conclusion of Judge Lynn'*
speech the audience was In a state of
ureat excitement. Applause and hlsse*
were intermingled with1 arguments bein.M.-n
those In favor of arbitration
and Its opponents, who sat side by
dde on thr- lynches. It was a tumult.
Threats, such^as "I'll punch your
uabc."-?<inld baJjeard.. and a man oceu- _
pylng a front seat stood up and shook
I.Ik list at the Justice as he sat in his
chair on the edge of the platform. The
police captain In the hall waved his
hands In the hope of quieting the noisy
ind excited crowd, and a force of polfce7ion
under him. Those who were standing
up and shouting sat down. When
>rder was partly restored. President
Setli Low arose and took Judge Lynn
sharply to task for making such a
speech nl a meeting of the friends of
arbitration. Mr. Low was hissed. The
<hairman called on former Congressman
Warner.

and then was unable to proceed on ac*.iunt
of the confusion, which developed
almost Into pandemonium.
Then the original resolutions were

of th" assemblage voted aye on
