Washington, June 21. lleforo con sideration of the tariff bill resumed by the senate yesterday morning tho liousc bill to Incorporate tho supreme lodge of the Knights of l'ythlas was reported favorably by henator 1 uuiu ner and passed Immediately. A hill was also pasted for the relief rf Charles college, Missouri, being pay ment for use ns property during the war, ns well ns one making the first Monday In September of each year Labor day n legal holiday. When the tnrllt bill was laid before the senate, Mr. Kjlo took the floor and spoke briefly. Ho made n general ar gument favoring the Income tux.dw oil ing on tho decline nf farm tallica In the west nndthe gradual concentration of wealth in the hands of the few. lie argued that the protective system had been responsible for the concentration of wealth In tho hands of the few, and It was Just nnd equitable that tho few should bear the sham of the burden nf taxation which their wealth made them able to bear. At tho conclusion of -Mr. Kyle speech Mr. Vest offered four additional amendments to the Income lax sec tions. Tho most Important was one to reduce tho exemption from $4,000 to 83,000, another exempted from the tax building and loan associations making loans only to their shareholders, und another piovldcd that 111 reckoning the profits of corporations for taxation, uctual operating expenses, loss and In terest on fixed Indebtedness should be excluded. Mr. Teller supported the Income tux proposition. Mr. Sherman followed Mr. Teller In opposition to the income tax. Mr. I'ntton, the new republican senator from Michigan, followed In a set speech ugulnst the general features of the tariff bill. Mr. Allen repelled the Idea covertly or openly .advanced by the opponents pf the Income tux that the populists jiad no regard for property, lie de clared chemontly that congress was n the hands of the money power. I Mr. Jarvis, Senator Vuneo's succes sor, from North Cnrollna, made his maiden speech in favor of the income tax. It was A o'clock when Mr. .Tarvls finished, and Mr. Hill, who desired to reply to some of tho remarks, asked Mr. Ilnnls, 111 charge of the bill, to jlcldtonu adjournment. Mr. Harris said he regiettcd that he could not comply with the request. Mr. Hill called attention to tho fact that this was tho first tlmo tills privi lege had been 1 of used. Mr. Harris said that If progress had been inado he w ould ha o J lelded to an adjournment. "The senator says tho time has been wasted," said Mr. J 1111. "It has," suld Mr. Harris, grullly, from his seat. "Who U the Judgo?" said Mr. Hill. "I sny It has not been wnsted. Thurs day 81,000 was fixed as tho exemption n this h. I argued Thursday that every 81,0(10 exempted made It more In defensible.

"I w 111 make tho senator accept other responsibilities," said Mr. lllll, his eyes flashing. The New York senator w us evidently thoroughly aroused. "I'roceed," ejaculated Mr, Harris, without rising from his scat. "I will not bo ordered by you," said Mr. lllll, turning upon tho senator from Tennesseo fiercely. "I will have none of jour pluntutlou manners exhibited tovard inc." "Neither do I caro for an exhibition of tho manners of tho slums of New York," retorted Jtr. Hurrls,liotly,rIslng to his feet. "Thev are better than those of the plantation. of Tennessee," said Mr. lllll. Mr. Harris mado no reply and Mr. Hill proceeded to call utteutlon to tho fact thut ho was In no way responsible for the delay on this bill. Mr. Harris, realising that ho could not forco tho New York senator against his will, maneuvered so u vote was had upon an Important vorbal amendment, and this, disclosing tho ubsenco of n quorum, ho moved un adjournment, and at 7:10 the senate adjourned.

It was read by sec tions for amendment and Mr. Aldrlch, of Illinois, offered tho first, Inserting "flour" In the list of agricultural prod ucts affected by tho bill. Tho amend ment was adopted. Then the house In committee, by n Toto of SI to 74, ndopted un amend ment uttered by Mr Stone, of Pennsyl vania, exempting thirty-day options. Itwasnu unexpected defeat, and Mr, J latch and others, amid great con fusion raised the point of no quorum, Mr Hutch saj lug that tho amendment, it adopted, would destroy the bill. On ft demand for teller tho vote oa Uw Stone amendment was 01 to OJ, and H w as thereby lost by n tic. The house adopted, by a vote of 07 to 8J, tho amendment offered by Mr. lloatncr excepting from tho operation of the bill such transactions ns should be entered Into In pood fulth. Mr. Hatch declared that Its Intent was to kill the bill, and that he would quite ns soon hnc the committee strike out tho enacting claiibonsudopt tlio amend ment.
