A Little Progress Reported in Considering the Democratic Tariff Bill. Trifling Compensation Proposed for Re moval of the Wool Duty. Emperor Frederick Sends a Message to the Reichstag. THE TARIFF BILL. Partial Compensation for Removal of the Duty on Wool. Washington, March 19.—Better pro gress was made to-day by the ways and means committee in the consideration of the tariff bill than has been made during the past few days. The free list was passed upon, as well as the chemical section, and at adjournment the committee had just taken up the paragraphs relating to crock ery and china. The most important action taken was the striking out of cement from the free list and the imposing of a 10 per cent ad valorem duty upon it instead of the present 20 per cent. rate. Jute manu facturing machinery was placed on the free list. In consideration of the fact that jute is also made free, Breckenridge has given notice that when the proper section is reached, he will make a move to re consider the vote by which cotton bagging was transferred from the free list to the dutiable class, with the existing tariff' of lô cents per yard. In the chemical section, "Sheep Wash,'' a proprietary compound for the removal of vermin aud the cure of skin diseases in sheep, was taken from the list of dutiable articles aud placed on the free list. The assigned reason for the change was a de sire to cheapen the cost of larmers' sup plies as a partial compensation for the re moval of the duty on wool. Washington, March 20. — Several amendments were made by the ways and means committee in Mills' tariff bill before its completion in committee. In the iron schedule the entire clause relating to steel ingots, and fixing the duty on that class of manufactures which was classified to some extent at 57 per cent, ad valorem, was stricken from the bill, leaving the duty at the present figure of 45 per cent, ad valorem. The present indications are that the bill will Ire reported to the House the early part of next week, although the committee has not yet formally directed a report to be made. EMPEROR FREDERICK. His Message to the German Reich stag. Berlin, March 19.— The emperor's mes sage to the reichstag was as follows: We, Frederick, by the grace of God, emperor of Germany, kiDg of Prussia, etc., proclaim that with the demise of our beloved father under God's inscrutable will, the imperial dignity with the Prussian crown, has de volved upon us, and we have taken upon ourselves the rights and duties bound up therewith. We are resolved to keep invio lable and firmly uphold the imperial con stitution, and in this sense to conscien tiously respect and guard the constitu tional rights of individual federal states, and the reichstag, fully conscious of our exalted task, will be ample in regarÿ of exalted task, ample regarÿ our ever-remembered father, and always be our endeavor in conjunction with the princes and free towns of the federation, and with the constitutional co-operation of the reichstag, to shield justice, freedom and order throughout the fatherland, safe guard the honor of the empire, maintain peace at home and abroad, and foster the welfare of the people. By the unanimous readiness with which the reichstag agreed to the proposals to strengthen the defen sive power of the fatherland in order to assure the security of the empire, the late deeply lamented emperor had the last days of his life rejoiced and strengthened. He was not longer permitted to express his thanks to the reichstag; all the more,there fore, do we feel the need of transmitting to the reichstag this legacy of the imperial masier who is now resting with God. We express our thanks in recognition of the patriotism and devotion it has again shown. Trusting confidently to the devo tion and tried love for the fatherland of the whole people and the people's repre sentatives, we place the empire's future in God's hands. Given at Charlotteburg the 15th day of March, 1888. (Signed) Frederick. Countersigned by Bismarck. What the Doctors Urge. Berlin, March 18.— Serious reports con cerning the emperor's condition are again in circulation. The emperor's despon dency, which has been increased by the change from the blue sky of San Remo *o the severe frost and deep snow of Berlin, causes great anxiety. Although he can speak, his voice is so thick and husky, and his pronunciation of vowels so imperfect that only those who bave been constantly with him can understand him. Chaplain Koegel, after reading the service for Em press Augusta in the palace this morning, went to Charlottenburg to officiate at ser vice for the whole imperial family in the castle chapel. Dr. Koegel's touching ser mon drew many tears. There is still a 1'oot of snow on the ground, and it is im possible for the emperor to venture out.

Frankfort, Ky., March 20. —Governor Buckner this morning suspended Treasurer of State James W. Tate. Tate is charged with defalcation in his office, and it is said has fied the State. The defaulting official has been treasurer for twenty-one years. It is thought Tate's shortage will amount to between $50,000 and $150,000. The investigation which was im mediately instituted on the recommenda tion of Gov. Buckner, disclosed before noon a deficit in Tate's office of $150, 000. The irregularities run back eleven years. FURTHER PARTICULARS. Frankfort, March 20.—The discovery of the defalcation is the result of an ex amination of Tate's books, commenced some days ago bv an expert accountant. Tate's bond was for $300,000, and is well covered. He was in Louisville Saturday night, when he was observed to be drink ing hard, an unusual thing for him. Since that time he has not been seen, and his whereabouts are unknown. Tate was elected state treasurer in 1867, having been nominated by the democrats. He has been re-elected unanimously at each election since, thus making his tenure of office twenty years on August 31 last. In the last democratic campaign Tate had no opposition for nomination. Every body laughed at the idea of opposing honest old Dick Tate. He received the nomination for the tenth consecutive time. His majorities have always stood among the largest on his ticket, and merry, honest, jolly "Dick" Tate has been one of the most widely known and universally liked men in Kentucky. Louisville, March 20.—Up to to-night it was impossible to state the exact amount of the shortage, but it is now fiuctuating between $150,000 and $400,000. The first intimation of the shortage came yesterday, when the comparison of the auditor's state ment of what should be in the bank show ed that such amount was not there. This, coupled with the fact that the Treasurer had not been seen since Friday at Frank fort, caused an examination to be made, with the result that the State's money was discovered to have been squandered in large amounts. Since the investigation was thought of stories about the strange conduct ot Tate have been made public. State Senator Wright says that on Thurs day last Tate questioned him closely and at great length as to the exact provisions in the extradition treaties between the United States and Canada, also with Mexi co. Wright did not pay much attention to it at the time. What has become of the money no one knows. Tate never speculated and is said not to have l>een an extravagant liver. Year by year the money had leaked out, however, and the shortage seems to have been running back a dozen years. Mr. Herndon, of this city, who was at one time teller in the bank at Frankfort, says Tate's defalcation will involve State officials and citizens of high standing. He says it was the custom of many State officials to go to Tate and get him to cash notes for them, promising to pay as soon as their vouchers were due. When they secured vouchers, however, they would defer payment, and the good natured treasurer failing to push the claims, accumulated a mass of such securi ties as must by this time be simply enor mous. There is no indication that Tate took any money with him. It is thought the report of the investigators will furnish definite light as to when and to whom Tate loaned the money. It is said a mem oranda in his office shows a loan of $50,000 to a certain whisky trust, and $25,000 to a Louisville company. It has been Tate's custom to settle up every year, and never up every year, never until now was there the least hesitation on his part to square the accounts with the auditor. This time, however, there was much procrastination, and he has been putting the auditor off since January. Last week the auditor grew urgent. Thursday Tate went to Louisville, saying he would be back Friday. Not having been heard from Saturday night, his family grew uneasy, as did also the auditor. Tele graphic correspondence elicited the fact that Tate had left Louisville Friday morn ing on a Cincinnati train. Then Auditor Hewitt ordered the balance taken, and it was found there was in the bank $124,000 less than the vouchers called for. Tate's wife and daughter are mnch prostrated. No oue seems to have any idea of where he has gone. Louisville, March 21.—A dispatch from Frankfort states that the senate judi ciary committee appointed yesterday by the house, in their joint report to the legis lature concerning the proper measures to be taken in the Tate defalcation case, recom mend impeachment. The report says sus pension by the governor does not vacate the office, and that impeachment is the only constitutional means by which, in this case, the absconding treasurer may be removed and his place made vacant. SWELLING THE SHORTAGE. Frankfort, Ky., March 21.—The re port recommending the impeachment of Treasurer Tate and authorizing a reward of $5.000 for his capture has been adopted by the legislative committee. Auditor Hewitt says his shortage will be between $190,000 and $200,000. Louisiana Bank Failure. New Orleans, March 20.—A special to the Picayune says : The excitement over the failure of the bank of Gattmao & Co. is unabated. Everything belongin to the Gattmans has been attached.

Expense of Revenue Collections. Washington, March 20.-Estimates made at the treasury department indicate that the present rate of collecting revenue from cus toms cannot be maintained up to the close of the present fiscal year without creating a deficiency of $400,f JO. Secretary Fair child bas therefore determined upon a reduction of the expenses to that amount during the remainder of the fiscal year, being $100,000 a month. The reduction has been apportioned among the different custom collecting districts, and the collec tors have been instructed to readjust their salaries accordingly, so as to bring the total expenses within the limit fixed upon, as the force cannot be reduced in numbers without seriously crippling the service. The saving can only be effected by a gen eral reduction of salaries. Congress will be asked to provide for service upon the present basis for the balance of the fiscal year. If that is done the reduction will only be temporary. Will Take Burlington Freight.
