Keen and bitter as tbey were, time and a manifestation ofja more generous sentiment brought a mitigation of sorrow and a clearer vieion of the tremendous evils to all the elates which would certainty and immedia.elv have followed upon the is ablistimeut ol tbe Sou nero Confederacy. Its very cornerstone was preordained to disinte? gration. Commercial and oiber condi? tions would as sure as fate bave brought about a dissolving Confederacy. I: seems strange that so many south? ern uko wben they accept government positions feel obliged to stultify them? selves and recant 'heir former words aod acts. There are thousands of men as competent to judge tn Mr. Dickinson, who believe that had the Southern Con? federacy won it would bare been one ot the grandest nations under tbe sun. The a>uth had the men with brain* and courage to organize a government and there is no reason whatever why, If thc sou:h had succeeded, tbe Confederacy should have dissolved. Senator Aldmch for the first time ?ince the ia.ill figutoegao, look occasioo yesterday to diclare mat bis tanti bill is not intended to advance prices. "The ?ingestion," he said, "that the tarifl duty is added to the price of the product in this country is repugnant to me aa a republican, as a protectionist and ss a man." He took the position that protection merely keeps r ut the fore.gn producer and tbat competition within the limits of the country fixes ihe cost of products at the lowest possible figure at wbich they can be produced and sold. Bat ihe senator know* and the country knows thst tbe great uir,j.,nty 0f the duties of tbe Aldrich schedules are im for thc very purpose of permitting the combinations to add ti the price of their pr dacts as much of the tarifl rae as the public can bo made to pay in tx* cess of a reasonable price. The Senate yesterday voted to raise the Uritt on lemons to one and a hall tents a pound despite the protest of Sen? ator Root wbo sunJs c!o-e to the admin? istration. Men abon; the Capitol fa? miliar with the tarifl state that tbis in? crease ia tbe Urifl will pay tbe full I wages of every man, woman ind child engaged in tbe lemon Indus ry a fd will also put five hundred thousand do'iaia into the pockets of tbe few lemon grow? ers io this country?chiefly in California ?who will now be enabled to fix the lemon prices. Lemons bave become a necessity and are used largely by the poor people of the country but by the republican high tar fl' ad voca es thfse people will hav. tr sLll-r io ord?r that tho lemon growers mav btciTie rich. Wrrn one month remaining before the end of the fiscal year, June 30,the treas? ury deficit has reached practically $100,. 000,000. Indications are that within one month more the deficit will he $110,000,000. Thia figure is better than ?as hoped for when consideration o' th? tarriff bill b'gio. Then it was estimated that the deficit would run to $125,000,000 Jncreised importations have sligbly reduced the daily deficit. from Washington nrr**pondence cf the Alexandria Qasetle.] Waahinzton, June 1. A call mar be ma Ie shortly by the s cretary ol the treasury upon nation*! bank dip ll'Offea for a portion pf the sixty million dol'ars of government money held by them. Fm'* in high official circles that Ihe tarifl bill, with the Panama canal bond Mtborlastlon, may not be enacted into law until some time after the firat of tbe new fiscal vear, July 1, prompted Secretary MacVeagh tcday to go thoroughly into the condi? tion of government Seances with the chiefs of the divisions of purdie moneys and bonds. Although there is no neces? sity of urgent acion because the increase in receipts for several months has check? ed tbe -apid growth of the deficit, now over $93,000,000, f, r eleven months of the present fi-cal year, a call upon the national bunk diptsitories is likely in order that a cf rtstn portion of the hravy appriations for I'.'IO made by thp last Congress may be cared for promptly in Jnlv Bnd AugtHt. With a key of froid studded with nuggets from the firat mine of the Klon? dike, President Taft in the east room of the White House thia afternoon started tbe wheels of the Alaska-Yukon.!'?? itir Exposition at Seattle As the message *ss flashed acro-s :he continent and a response was received from the fir Pacific coaft, the crowd of diplomats, statesmen and officials gathered about the president set up a hearty cheer and declared to each other that the enter? prise would be a grest success.

Tbe boors of meeting, beginning tomorrow, will be from 1030 a. m. to 5 p. m. and from 8 p. m. to not later than ll p. m. A committee report fixing these bonrs waa laid over until tomorrow on an objection by Senator Colberso:., but Mr. Aldrich said he would move this evening to adjourn until 10:30 tomotrow aod tomorrow alttrnoon he wov.ld move a night session. There seems to be- no doubt that he will be supported by a mnj irity of tbe Senate. While the committee report was being discussed today Mr. Aldrich said he hoped it would not be necessary to have night sessions for longer than a week. Some of the senators complained that Ihe long hours under the order would deprive them ot time in which to attend to their correspondence and to investi ggie tarifl problems. Tbe cotton schedule upon which a considerable fight is anticipated was taken up in the Senate today when con? sideration of the tarifl bill wa* resumed. S?nator Aldrich, on behalf of the finance committee, immediately offered amendments proposing certain reduc? tions in the rates as originally reported by tbat committee. Ooe of these was to reduce from 20 to 16 per cent ad valorem the tarifl to be pa'd by cotton thread and carded yarn. Another was to reduce from 25 to 80 per cent the duty on spool thread, crochet arid em? broidery cotton. He also submitted amendments restoring the House rates on cotton cloth. Senator 1> i liver offered some further amend? ments to this paragraph which he pro? ceeded to discuss. Hm amendment was to re-adopt paragraph 312, elton cloth, as U appeared in the Payne bill w'th two amendments. One was to include mercer zd cloth and the other was to impose an ad valorem dnty of lb per cent on cloth over 7 cents in value. Senator Dollivvr explained that the object of his amendment was to restore in each of the paragraphs of the cotton schedule the Dingley provisos so that tbe various grades of cott in cloth should, pay as they Increase in value, 86 p?r ern: ad valorem. The bill as reported by the committee changed nil the ad valorem rates to specific rates. News of tbe l*ay.

Mr. Jamr* ii. Uatoo, democratic door leaner of the House of Delegates and cunio-titi! bl the democratic nomination for lieutenant governor, has giveu out a statement relative to bis position as a candidate. tito Caton says that he entered the race four yean ago, but withdrew in I ol Mr. Ellysnn. the present incum? bent, wbo is >.lso acandidatn for renomi i. Tbe off.ee being one of honor purely and Mr. Kllytou having held it for four years, Mr. Caton declares that he does not intend to retire fioiu tba. rac . In further explanation Mr. Oaton says that the constitution prohibit the govern or from sue?eedini? himself and that while there is no eipreee inhibition as to the lieutenant governor yet tbe un? broken canton ot' the lieutenant gover? nor retirityg wi'li the governor wouiei se io io i i ply tbat if the le-ter of B4 constitution does not, the Bpirit ol tue constitution should apply to both offices. "The three highest positions of honor in o ly, in tbe gilt of V\e denocfatic party of Virginia, are now held hy Mr. J. Taylor Eilyaon, namely: State chair? manship, membership lu the national di'ir.ocra.ic party aud lieutenant gover? norship. Tbe two first he has held for many ytars aod the !a-;t for fonr years, aril he now seeks to perpetuate his term in :hat office, monopolizing the honors in the git' of the party, which to say thc losst is uu-di mocrntic.'' li conclusion Mr. Caton says: "Tba relation td the State chairman, who should bo in a position to direct a pri? mary with ai impartial hand, aa between all con teeta-j U for honors therein, and the relation nf tbe chairman, as a candi? date for lieutenant governor in the same primary, exercising enery rtlort and bending every evrgy and influence to secure the nomination, in the very pri? mary which he is directing for the benefit of all contestants therein, is bo glaringly improper ss not to need further com? ment." Mr. Eilyaon yesterday issued a lotter In reply to the communicat'on ot Mr. Caton, in which be takes the ground that he offered hia resignation to the State committee at ila last sen-ion ?tating that he was a candidate and de sin d to relieved of tbe position pending the primary. Thecommittee, hy a un? animous vote, decided that tbe position of the chairman was one that required g'f at executive ability, tbat the people had to pass on the candidacy of the two gentlemen and that it was right and r foi him ti bold th> chairmanship aid on that vote and at the request of the committee he is holding to his duties aud directing the campaign. He also states tbat Hon. John 8, B-rhour was, whilst a member of tbe House of Representatives, elected chair? man of the state committee a* the meet? ing helli .a Lynchburg in 1883. Mr. Baili B.
