WASHINGTON. D. C. Jane 10.?The
lonjr deferred debate on the sugar
schedule of the tariff bill came on
abruptly at 1 o'clock to-day. after the
apnate disposed of the cereals in the
agricultural schedule. The Interest In
the sugar schedule had been whetted
for weeks, and aside from the fact that
more revenue ts derived from sugar
t.han from any other article, there was
the added interest due to the aensatlooal
charges made of late, within and
without the senate. concerning irreguI
laritles In connection with the progress
I <.f the schedule Hut the debate failed
to develop any dramatic Incidents
Senators and spectators soon lapsed
into a state of Indifference, as the
speeches dt\?It with a labyrinth of technical
details, of vital Interest to th?*
lagar refiner and expert, but not to the
general public.
llr. Jones (Ark.) opened the debate to
some extent answering Mr Aldrlch's
statement on the sugar schedule. It
wa? argumentative and lacking in any
Kvere denunciatory feature?. Th?*
aeaator held that the rates proposed
gave the refiners an .excessive differential.
aSl pointed out how they had

Mr. V?t severely crltclsed the suf^ir
trust and arrued that the rates wero a
farther tribute to its vaat [resources.

n-uions relating to the Hawaiian

K.-rir in th<* day Mr. Tilknao (South
' *- ?:n.?) made a lively speech In fa
f the amendment fflvlnjr an export
. n agricultural products. He took
vasV>n In this connection to criticise
Democratic associates who were
rx; a strict and literal construction
; th? Democratic doctrine of a tax for
revenue only.
He ?flld the tariff debate had disci.,
! a nebulous condition In the nrtnds
' lenators. The Republican senators
Mt quietly, apparently controlled by the
caucus, refu-Hlnff to discuss the iniquit><
^>f the bill and unanimously voting
for th* exactions In behalf of trusts and
?n the other hand." proceeded Mr.
Tilimnn. "the Democrats are !n a
tnnsitlon. They don't know where
they'ro at. The older, more experl
encea proclaim meir nimniancc me
old tlms honored doctrines.
"We had an lmpossloned speech yesterday
(by Mr. Mills) In behalf of the
Walker tariff principled, brought forward
at this late day. as Democratic
doctrine. Secession, nullification and
ether Irsue*. which have passed out of
the minds of men. might aa well be
brought here. The tariff la merely n
question of policy, as to how the government
will raise Its rev?*nue. I say
without hesitation It Is to the best Interests
of th* American people that th?
artlcli-s consumed by our people should
he produced by our people. If that Is
Republican doctrine, well and good. If
that is not Democratic doctrine. It
oucht to be."
Mr. Tillman went on to ahow that
diversified Industrie* gave diversified
means of labor. Mr. Tillnvm vehemen:ly
pledged his word to his colleagues
that they would not deceive the farm* :?
and that the nine million farmers

Senator Pettigrow's Intention to offer
his anti-trust amendment to the tariff
hill at the end of the Hugnr schedule,
nd the manner of Its acceptance Is
l-Tlrmlnir to be a matter of speculation
among senators. There was son* talk
to-day of the necessity of a Republicsn
caucus to decide the position that party
in the Senate should take upon tho
proposition, which ?rew out of well
founded reports that aome Republican
" tutors had announced their intents
to vote for the amendment when

Wheeling Park.
The German Pioneers society had Its
semi-annual outing at Wheeling park
yesterday afternoon and evening. The
customary street parade was eliminate!
this time, and a quieter, but non?
tho less enjoyable, affair attracted
nearly the entlremcmbership. The Pioneers
are becoming fewer as the year*
roil by, many of them passing away
last year. One thing, though, those remaining
retain sufficient of their hardy
youth to enjoy themselves, and celebrate
when comes their day to celebrate.
They went out to the park on the afternoon
motors, accompanied by their
wives and family friends. The day was
not given over to any sort of programme
of exercises, but the hours were pleasantly
whlled away in the recital of experiences
in Wheeling during the early
days. The Opera House orchestra ?d
much with Its music to further the enjoyment
of the day.

ful interpretation at the hands of the

dlence. Pretty mimic and clever selections,
with plenty of opportunity for
strong chorus work abound In "Ths
Grand Duchess." and the company did
full justice to all. Mlaa Knox was Ideal

when she appeared. In the second
act In the duo with "Fritz," she was
most captivating and wan presented
with a fine bouquet Mr. Roberts made
u capital "General Boum," and Miss DoJlue
a very charming "Prince Paul."

and encores were frequent. "The
Grand Duchess" will be repeated tonight
and to-morrow afternoon, wit*
"The Chimes of Normandy" on Saturday
night The management will run
