been brought before the -grand Jury,
and an Indictment lina been returned,
and once more an Indictment Iuin been
submitted, with all he evidence, to n
second Jury ot his peera, and a second
time he him been convicted.
Now will Senator Burton resign the

Secretary Tuft appears to In quite
willing to let In free of duty the sugar

products mo raised chiefly lu the

line about where Mason and Dixon
drew It. lu his Knnsas City speech ho
stated that the tobacco and sugar In

Is the quintessence of selfishness for
these Intercbts to oppose a Just and

bio and selfish than the tobacco and
Mignr Interests. These selllsh Inter
ests, by insisting upon tho luvlolabli
ity of enormously high duties which
aro not at all necessary for their pro
tection, are bringing retaliatory ac
tion (torn the countries which are
grvitly Injured by those duties, This
