J M Ditkiuiou, a soutaeru man by

Tbe overthrow of tne soutn, aa always

tm for a long time ndtniittd of nothing
but lameotatiuu over a result tbat could
bru j: such wots. 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

into the pockets of tbe few lemon grow?

?who will now be enabled to fix the
lemon prices. Lemons bave become a

poor people of the country but by the

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

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

BkXATB.
Night session-! will be added ti the
Senate programme tomorrow. 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.

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. Conlon succeeded Mr.
Bwbooi in 1889 and whilst a State Sen?
ator he was male chairman of the Stale
