Bridesmaids In Pompadour Gowns, With Bouquets. The -wedding of Miss Amelia Braden Nabb, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Henry Nabb, and Mr. Walter Chew Phillips, took place last evening at 8:30 o'clock at the First Baptist churoh. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Dr. A. J. XMckerson, the Episcopal ser vice, the churoh of the bridegroom, being used. The decorations were entirely out of the ordinary. A garden effect was produced by beds abloom with narcissus in the cen tre of which was a rare pandanus with green and gold foliage. On either side of this central bed were beds filled with potted plants. About the choir rail was a trellis of smilax and on either side were •terraces covered with English Ivy. Palms rising to a stately height made a mag nificent background. Completing this elab orate decorative plan were imperial bay trees twelve feet tall and the rare Kentla plants. The pews reserved for the fam ily and reception guests were designated by ropes of, smilax caught with white hya cinths. Preceding the ceremony was an organ recital and a violin solo was given Just before the wedding party entered the church. Miss Nabb, who was given away by her father, wore a regal gown of white satin brocaded in orchids and trimmed with point lace embroidered with pearls.

The arrangements were on a mag nificent scale. Mr. and Mrs. Phillips re ceived their congratulations In the palm room, which was transformed into an enchanting place, where electrical foun tains had been arranged especially for the occasion and southern smilax and palms used so lavishly as to hardly make any port of the palm garden the same in appearance. About the arcade was built a curving trellis fully twenty feet high, which extended from the white pilasters to tall pedestals placed at inter vals about the court- There were five of these pedestals banked to a great height with palms, and all of them were studded with small white and green lights. In the center of the palm room was an elec trical fountain of bronze and gold, the water playing over colored lights. An orchestra was stationed back of the palms. Besides these elaborate decorations the pink drawing room and the entire reception suite, including the private ball room. were used and decorated with cost ly and beautiful roses. In the private dining room a buffet supper was served. The decorations of smilax studded with wedding bells were gorgeous. Each bell, more than a hundred In number, con tained an electric light, which shone star like amid the foliage. Lilies of the valley were used to carry out the white and green colors, and the table decorations were In large wedding bells decorated with lilies.

EALZELL OPENS UP ON TARIFF ISSUE Mr. Keifer Urges the “Stand Pat” Doctrine MORRIS CASE IS INJECTED Mr. Payne Roasts Mr. Sheppard for Bringing Up the Matter, Which, He Says, Belongs In Police Court. Washington, January 10.—A vigorous speech In favor of the Philippine tariff bill by Mr. Dalzell of Pennsylvania opened the proceedings in the House today. It was followed by several others against the measure, most notable of which was a two-hour address by the veteran states man, Mr. Keifer of Ohio, an ex-speaker, who returns to the House after a retire ment of twenty years. Mr. Keifer be spoke “stand pat” doctrine of the most pronounced type and said he should op pose the pending bill because it was a concession to the democratic principles. His speech was replete with recollections of earlier days and received the closest attention and liberal applause from both sides of the chamber. Just before the session closed the inci dent of the ejection from the executive ! offices of Mrs. Minor Morris was made the suoject of discussion by Mr. Sheppard of Texas. A brief reply was made by Mr. Groevenor of Ohio, who deprecated sending out sensational reports regard ing the American administration. Dalzell Opens Debate. Mr. Dalzell of Pennsylvania opened the debate on the Philippine tariff bill. He asserted that the Philippine archipelago was a portion of the United States and sought free trade both ways, but under the circumstances, that at this time, is impossible. When the treaty stipulation which granted Spain the same advantages as the United States expires in 1909, there will be free trade under this bill. As serting that the future of the Philippines was a problem for the statesmen that are to come, Mr. Dalzell Insisted that self government had been given the Filipino people except in the two rights, trial by i jury and to bear arms. "We have,” said Mr. Dalzell, "extended to these people our navigation laws, our immigration laws, our alien contract la bor law*. Do you mean to :ell me we shall commit them to our oppressive poli cies, require them to carry their goods only In American bottoms, and still ex clude them from our markets? No, the Philippine Islands must be either wholly foreign or wholly domestic.” Referring to the charge of Inconsistency made against him yesterday by Mr. Bo nynge of Colorado, Mr. Dalzell remarked: “I want to say that the charge of In consistency which Emerson has charac terized as 'the terror of feeble minds,’ has no terror for me. There Is no man who will continue for any length of time in public life who will not at some time or other be charged with apparent inconsist ency. The question that was all absorb ing and agitating the American people when that speech was delivered was ‘Does the constitution follow the flag?’ In the government of our insular posses sions, are we bound by the limitations of the constitution? I strongly main tained that we were not; that the su preme court subsequently decided that we were not—to that doctrine I still adhere In pointing out the dangers to which we should be subjected. I said that It would bring us free trade with Porto Rico and with the Philippines; that It would Incor porate Into the body of our citizenship 12,000,000 Malays and I protested against putting our labor on a plane with the half of the savage labor of the Philip pines. “I still contend that If bound by the lim itations of the constitution, all that I said then would be true. But X propose to demonstrate now that the enactment of this measure will not place labor of the Philippines on a plane with our farmer, nor will it affect a single dollar of a single wage-earner. "The gentleman is right, I did call a halt—but the people of the United States refused to respond. They said our con stitution may not follow the flag but justice and fair play do.” (Applause.) Characterizing as iridescent the claims of the sugar and tobacco champions. Mr. Dalzell Itemized the cost of a pound of Philippine sugar laid down In New York, which aggregated 4.13 cents as against 3.90 as the cost of Michigan beet sugar and 3.71 of Colorado sugar. From this he deducted that within the next century the American beet sugar was In no danger of competition from Philippine sugar. Interruption By Longworth. An Interruption was made by Mr. Long*? worth, O., who was a member of the Sec retary Taft expedition to the Philippines last summer. Had It not been demonstrat ed, he asked, that all of the sugar raised in the Philippines waa raised on the Island of Panaya, and that all the labor required Is to be brought to the Island from other Islands. This, Mr. Dalzell replied, was his un derstanding. Mr. Dalzell concluded with the plea, "Shall we follow the President of the United States, the great leader of the re publican party, or,shall we desert him? It will not do to try and hide self-interest under the plea of loyalty to protection— It will not do to sneer at sentiment—If It fall here it will not fall In that great forum of the American people, a people that sprung to arms to avenge the sail ors of the sunken Maine and spilt the blood of Its sons In a war not for glory or conquest, but for humanity. "The same ennobling sentiment calls us today—let us answer in the same spirit." Opposition to the bill was made because of the fear of rice competition by Mr. Pujo of Louisiana. As the result of an interruption. Champ Clark of Missouri made this comment re garding the Dingley tariff law: "I think It Is an Infernal curse to the whole Ameri can people." Mr. Williams, minority leader, Interject ed Into Mr. Pujo's speech the exact demo cratic position on the tariff. lie said: "It should be levied solely with regard to the maximum revenue production. If It protects In certain places well and good, but that should not be Its primary object." Mr. Keifer Takes the Floor. Mr. Kiefer of Ohio, once speaker of the House, and who i.as returned as a mem ber after an absence of twenty years, took the floor. He was somewhat em barrassed. he said, to take a position in opposition to that of both parties on the bill. "On this side,’’ he said, "t'he claim is made that ‘there is not enough of free trade in it to have it made secure’, and on the other side that there is enough ‘constitutionality’ in It to hurt.” He quoted from the speech of Mr. Payne to the effect that the bill would not do the Philippines much good, but there was sentiment in it. The Filipinos thought it would encourage them, and then he declared: “I am opposed to--’raging anybody, but I can't see my way clear to vote for this bill merely because the Filipinos are deceived in the belief that it will do them some good w..en it won't." About twenty-five years ago Mr. Keifer said he had made a prophecy In a ten minute speech in the House which had come true. That was that the only way to get rid of the college professor’s theory of free trade was to have free trade. We had had free trade and 'had gotten rid of tihe theories. He was opposed to Join ing the free traders now. He contrasted the present prosperity with the “soup house days" of the Wilson bill, and was follow with amusement in reviewing democratic declarations that God and not the republican party was responsible for prosperity, for the better conditions which followed resumption and for the estab lishment of the gold standard. “I say it reverently," he continued, “that my party advocates the things that the Almighty sees fit to work out and accomplish completely and that ti.rnld be glory enough for us. “And it may be said that the democratic party in the many things it has had on Its banner and gone down to defeat has simply been unfortunate that the Al mighty was not with them.” Do-Nothing* Prefer Free Trade. Every man In the United States who does nothin* and produces nothin* Is a freetrader, said Mr. Keifer, and hls neigh bors want protection. The tariff revision demanded by Massachusetts, he noticed, did not Include anything on the free list that was produced In that state. Mr. Keifer spoke for more than two hours and was warmly congratulated by members from both sides of the chamber. Opposition to the bill was made In a twenty minute speech by Mr. Dixon of Montana. Hls assertion that republicans were uniting to further the democratic doctrine of free trade brought a protest from Mr. Macon of Arkansas, who said the democratic party did not stand for free trade. “•How about the declarations of Champ Clark and Bourke Cochran In their asser tions that all the custom houses should be tom down,” asked Mr. Dixon. "I have great respect for the gentle man from Missouri,” responded Mr. Ma con, "but not so—well, I have less re speot for the opinions of the gentleman from New York." The last remark was received with mer riment. Mr. Williams, the minority leader, ex plained that his party dUf not believe In free trade, and the declaration In Its platform that “all forms of protection are robbery to which attention was called by Mr. Orosvenor did not mean free trade.” White House Incident. The recent ejectment of Mrs. Minor Morris from the White House of flee building wae made the subject of re marks by Mr. Sheppard of Texas. Mr. Sheppard has a resolution for an Investi gation of the Incident pending before the rules committee. Mr. Orosvenor made the point of order that the discussion of a resolution pending before a committee was not proper. ”1 object to a Chinese a ill around the White House, as well as around the United States.” Mr. Sheppard replied. "If the gentleman thinks It Is a proper subject matter to arraign the president and hls household, why let him go ahead,” said Mr. Orosvenor. •'I will let the country Judge of that,” retorted Mr. Sheppard, "if the President had heard the howl of a wolf or the growl of a bear In the adjoining room, he would have been on the scene Immediately,” he continued, characterising the occurrence as an "unwarrantable and unnecessary brutality,” which demanded Investigation and merited censure. "If Congress," he continued, "com posed of American father*, husbands. brothers, permits this incident to go un rebuked, It will add a passive and cow ardly approval of this violation of the most sacred principle of American life.” Mr. Payne of New York made the point of order that Mr. Sheppard was not dis cussing the MU under consideration and Mr. Olmstead In the chair ruled that In committee of the whole great latitude Is allowed. Mr. Payne remarked that he disliked to deprive the democratic party of a new Issue, but he thought the speech was one that would be more In place In a police court than In the House. Mr. Grosvenor said he knew no differ ence between the dignity of the White House and any other home In the city, and he did not consider the American Congress in the sense of a police court or as having anything to do with the question of disorderly conduct of any em ploye In the neighborhood of the White House. He did not believe any condition had arisen where the husband of the woman In question could not secure the proper redress. The House adjourned at 6:05 o’clock until tomorrow. Money for Confederate Graves. Washington, January 10.—The Senate made It plain today that it had heard yes terday all it wants to hear for the present on the Moroccan question. There were two opportunities to resume consideration of the subject, but both were avoided and apparently with the assent of all the members. Having had its day In court, the resolution dealing with the subject was placed on the calendar, and when It was reached in regular order no one man ifested the least disposition to disturb 11 there, and the Senate adjourned at a com paratively early hour, rather than take it up. Notwithstanding the early adjournment a good deal of business was disposed of. About eighty bills were passed, leaving on the calendar only six or seven meas ures. Of the bills passed, a large ma jority grant private pensions and many were bridge bills. One of the bills favor ably acted upon appropriates $200,000 for the appropriate marking of the graves of Confederate soldiers who died in north ern prisons during the civil war. For tihe rest of the session the Senate gave attention in turn to the question of the salaries paid to Panama canal officials, to the pure food, bill and the merchant marine shipping bill, but without taking ac tion on either of those subjects. The canal subject was discussed by Mr. Simmons and the pure food bill by Mr. Hepburn. Gotham’* Great Future. From the Detroit Free Press.
