Parmers Seek Provecton for Their Po.
WAS111NGTON, Nov. 1.-A call was
issued this morning for a full meeting
of the Democratic members of the
Ways and Means Committee to be held t
tomorrow, at which it was expected
that the lirst draft of the new tariff
bill would bm considered. Later in the
day it was decided to ptstpone the
meeting of the majority members of
the committee indefinitely. Bourke
Cockran. of Nqw York who had been
telegraphed for had not' arrived, And
Lynum of Indiana was unexpectedly
called out of the city last night. Both
gentlemen may be present tomorrow
but further action will depend upon
their movements.
Several members of the majority
were kept busy yesterday listening to
arguments and appeals froin fterest
ed persons and parties who desired to
have their views upon certain ua..ti-rs
incorpoiated into the new tariff bill.
The most important of t hite, were del.
egations from Alabama and \rirgin:.

broke out about 7:15 o'clock in the 0

Wforo !he flames were chocked at 9 p.
n., several lives were lost and nearly a r

our, while four or live persons were in. t
ured, some fatally, in jumping from the n
)urning building. 0
About a quarter past 7 o'clock peo. t
pie in the vicinity were startled by the
report of an explos'on and a flash. In v
an instant tie flames were pouring from rl
Lhe lower floor of the six-storv building t
)ccu,)ied by the Schmalzried 1iirdware
Company. The second, third, fourth.
and fifth floors were occupied by the Y.
N1. C. A., and it was in this place that
'he terrible lose of life occurred. c
The fire started from the explosion of w
a large coal oil lamp near the stairway, k
md in three minutes the entire front of b
the building was in flames and all means l
)f exit cut oil. There were about fif.
Leen people in the library when the 0
ilarm was given. They made a wild
ush for the main street exit only to be '
Iriven back by the llams. Like ~a flock a
>f sheep, they ruihed iu a bunch for the al
inudows at the rear ot the building, but
;he flames had sprend so rapidly through i
.he building that the Ptcings of three ofr
lhe windows were on 1ire when they a
-eached the rear of the building.
They stood huddled to-ether at the
vindow for a moment or two, when the
,rowd below yelled "leap, Jumip for
tour lives!" One man took the advice,
tiniped and was cauht on a telet:raph
vire but was rescued. iIe was foll'owed 1.

WASHINOTON, Nov. 15.-A revenuf
fifty million dollars is expected bj
ie Democrats of the ways and meani
)mmittee from the moderate incom(
Lx which they propose to incorporate
i the new revenue bill. The rate ol
ke tax will probably be 2 per cent. and
le exemptions will be high enough tc
iclude the great mass of laboring men
ad peoplo on small salaries. The limil
ow un<ler discussion is from $3,500 tc
1,000. A great many statistics havc
een prepared by the Treasury expertiE
a the incomes of the country and the
ttes of revenue obtained under differeni
lans, and it is believed that a 2 pei
3nt. rate will yield a handsome addition
> the revenue of the government. 1
ie increase in the revenue should provQ
isufflicient, after a year or two, to meel
ie demands of the Treasury, the ratc
light be elightly increased, or the limil

ill not be necessary. There will be
o increase in the bter tax, the whis

lie rcciprocity section, which deals

The (reatment of bituminuous coal is
other open question with the Demo.
ifs of the commi.tee. Coal was on

riff bill, in accordance with the pldge

1ain a small duty.
Chairman Wilson hopes to present
e completed bill to the Repubi;can
embers of the ways and means com
ittee by the latter part of next week,
that they can have their minority re
>rt ready upon the meeting of Con.

a party caucus to pass8 u,>on the bill,
It believes that, it should toe fairly con
lered by the 110use as p)resca ted by
s committee. This was the course
thi the Mills bill, and no caucuses
,re held until debate began, under the
e minute rule, on the separate ached

tent if' taken up as it comes fro,n the
inmitt-ee, and that general debate in
SHouse will solve some of' tbe prob
