The Herald AT THE NATION'S CAPITAL. Senator Perkins Makes a Tariff Speech. The Coxey Question Bobs Up in the Senate. Latitudtnous Debate in the House on the Diplomatic Bill. The Hawaiian Controversy Winked Oxer Again — Why Senator White r.rori tha New Chlne.e Treaty. By the Assoc'atoil Press Washington, April 10 —The day in the senate was almost entirely consumed by a speech against the pending tariff bill by Senator I'erkins of California. Tbe speech «as mainly devoted ton dis cussion ot the articles which directly i.ffe ■ d California, although he con sidered other features of the bill in which his state is not interested, but which are opposed to Republican prin ciples, and he accordingly arraigned. PERKINS' SPEECH. Perkins opened his speech with a gen eral statement, describing tbe biiinees and financial conditions of the country, saying that he preferred to consider and discuie tbe question as a business rather than a political matter. He said: "It has been tbe plan for tbe past 30 years nf wise statesmanship to raise about one-balf of the expenses of the gov ernment by placing an import duty upon the products of other lands that come into this conn ry for consumption or us* by our people, and to so adjust these duties that they will best protect and loster American industries and thereby dignify and protect American labor against the cheap, servile and contract labor of foreign lands. That this ia the correct principle is evidenced from the fact tbat daring this time our industrial interests have been stimulated and our people prosperous, content and happy. The Democratic party has fallen ftom its high estate, abandoned its principles utterly, and instead ot making open and bold war npon its ancient doctrines and adopted platform, enters beneath the Republican platform, attacks the Re publican tariff measure, which is de clared unconatitutional and a robber, on the «ame"priorlpllßr^futitljt fe',?? ture of tbe same materials." He then took up ad discussed the question in detail and spoke at some length as to the various California in terests—borax, quicksilver, best soger, sulphur, salt, fruits, nuts, wine, wool aud coal—affected by the bill, claiming for tbem all tbe protection given under tbe present laws. "This ought to be tbe richest country in the world ; taxes should be the lowest; labor be on a higher standard and bet ter paid, and its products should bring the greatest satisfaction, all of which it would be and do but for the anglo-mania tbat has turned the heads of a large portion of onr people and especially of one of our great political parties," con tinued the speaker. "The condition of affairs in this country is vastly different from what it waa a quarter of a century ago. Tbe discontented and unsettled classes, of which the number ia steadily increasing, have no longer new and virgin territory to occupy when they be come dissatisfied with the older country. Tbe time has come when in tbe order of things we have a fixed national policy on all things affecting the stability of the government. The shifting, fluctuat ing policy of tbe managers of the p«rty ot free trade, in seeking to force its views npon tbe country, whether the people endorse tbem or not, is a striking illus tration of its unhnesa to manage na tional affairs and can but result in dis aster to tbe party tbat attempts it. We can endure less foolishness tban formerly. Tbe people can stand less nonsense in tbe shape of unwise laws tban when tbere was less suffering and idleness among them." But little business was transacted dur ing the morning hour, the agreement of tbe senate to the report of tbe confer ence committee on the urgent deficiency bill being tbe most important. THE COKEY MOVEMENT, Peffer stirred op quite a hornet's nest by calling np bis resolution for tba ap pointment of a committee on communi cations to receive the petitions of Coxey'e army. He explained tbat the object of tbe resolntion was to begin preparations for the proper reception of tbe body of men and giro every one a fair chance to present bis grievance to congress. Tbe senate, regarded by many aa tbe American house of lords, wonld bave an opportunity to show it was not out of touch with the people by appointing the committee. The coun try, be eaid, was on the verge of trouble. Unless the authorities were wise and managed affairs with discretion they would regret it in the near future. The time wae ripe for such movements, bnt this waa a peaceful one. The men were simply coming here to lay tbeir griev ances before congress. Peffer was followed by Senator Allen, Populist, of Nebraska, who, while not entirely approving Coxey's action, as sertad tbe perfect right of C. xey and his followers to oome to Washington if they cboae. Not only that, hut they bad a right to come into the capitol aud occupy the galleries of the senate, and it would be uuwiae on the part of tbe sen ate to refuse tbem tbe privilege. They had also tbe right to be beard, and no man, whether a senator or a citizen, had a right to deny tbat right. He bit terly denounced the report that General Ordway of the National guard of the District of Colntnbia, was preparing to mobilize the militia at the confines of the district. "These men are coming here witb perfect rights," continued Alien, "with rights which are constitutional and as sacred as those of any other man, LOS ANGELES, FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL 20, 1894 woman or child, and yet we witness the spectacle of this city bein< thrown into convulsions over the expectation of re ceiving a peaceful body of men into the city." Tbe resolution went over without ac tion by tbe expiration of the morning honr. At 5 o'clock eulogies were pronounced on tbe late Representative Eno is of Ohio, alter which the senate, at 6:15 p. m., adjourned. Blow Progress Mnil. With the Diplo matic Bill. Washington, April 19.— The house is making very slow progress with the diplomatic and consular appropriation bill. Almost the entire day was devoted to the working up of old straw in tbe Hawaiian controversy. The text used as a basis for the debate wai a motion to cut eff tbe salary ol tiie Hawaiian minister. The motion was defeated when the vote was taken. About 4 o'clock half the membership of the house suddenly faded away to attend tbe opening ball gauio of the •• ison, and when this act was observed, Cannon of Illinois carried the committee ol the w' Ie to a vote on an amendment to to prevent an im °ase of the aalary ol the Mexican secre rry of legation. Tbe Democrats were unable to produce a quorum, and alter a roll call the house adjourned PACIFIC RAILROADS. On motion of Rsilly, chairman of the committee on Pacific railroads, the fol lowing resolution was adapted: That the secretary of the interior be directed to communicate to tbe house all information he has in hia possession as to what arrangements (other than the ■inking fund now maintained in the treasury under the act of 1878), the rail road corporations to whom bonds were issued by Hie United States under the acts of 18S2-83, to aid in the construction of railroads sad telegraph lines from the Missouri river to tbe Pacific coast, bave mads or proposed to make fjr the pay ment at maturity of the bonds issued by ■aid corporations, respectively, which are a prior lien to tbe bonds issued by the United States under the aots afore said, and whether snch bonds are hold or owned by either of said companies. THE DIPLOMATIC BILL. Tho house then went into committee of tbe whole, and tbe consideration of tbe diplomatic and consular appropria tion bill was resumed. Dingley replied to some of yesterday's Democratic strictures upon ex-Minister Stevens and paid a high tribute to bis personal character and habits. McCreary closed the general debate on thb bill. 1. h ,T,r-^-eVc- 0B m? — i.Ticeyotiared the amendment of which be had given notice, striking out tbe appropriation for a minister to Hawaii. Tbe amendment reopened tbe Hawaiian controversy, which was participated in by Grosvenor, Dinsmore, Springer, Van Voorbis and Hitt. The latter, the head of the foreign affairs committee minor ity, declared tbat ordinarily be would oppose the withdrawal of" a minister, but the current business of Hawaii could be transacted by the consul-gen eral. The withdrawal would not be per manent. The irrisistable force of public opinion would constrain the adminis tration to change its policy, and if this amendment were adopted it would be construed as an expression of the de preciation of the representatives of the American people. Cannon of Illinois was opposed to cutttne off Mr. Willis' salary. He thought instead of taking bis salary away Mr. Willie ought to be given a bonus of $5000 for tbe wear and tear on his conscience and bis Kentucky chivalry. GRESHAM'S STATESStANBHIP. Grosvenor replied rather sarcastically to Springer's reference to Secretary Gresham as a "great statesman." Gros venor said Mr. Gresham bad held office under the Republican party ever since tbe war. He bad had a fleeting c reer as secretary of tbe treasury and post master-general, but he demanded a bill of particular* of Mr. Greßham'e claim to being a great statesman. Springer, in response, sketched Secre tary Gresham's career from hia service in the army, bis successive appoint ments as district judge, secretary of the treasury, postmaster-general, as circuit judge, aud presented by the Republi cans of Illinois as their candidate for president. This certificate of his bril liant statesmanlike qualities, Mr. Springer thought, ought to be aa good an endorsement as the Republicans on tbe otner aide could ask. To their men heceaeed to he a great statesman when he abandoned tbe Republican party. "How do you know he has abandoned tbe Republican party," asked Morgan (Dem.) ol Missouri. "Oh," replied Springer amid laughter, "I know that certain men on tbis aide suspect Judge Gresham, but I for one rejoiced iv his selection as secretary of state." ORE-HAM HELD UP TO SCOBN. Boutelle held Gresham up to public ■corn in bia vehement and icoroful manner. "What government ia Willis acorodited to?" he asked, addressing McCreary. "f he do facto government," replied McOreary. "I thank tbe chairman of the foreign affairs couimutee ior this ray of light," said Boutelle. "I am glad to learn that tbe administration has at last recognized the government which John L. Stevenß recognized wheu the revolution oc curred." [Republican applause.J "Does the gentleman not know min isters are always accredited to the da facto government?" asked McCrearr. "Presumably co," retorted Boutell, "but if I understand the English lan guage in this case Mr. Willie was in structed by .Mr. Cleveland and Mr. ..eeuani to sing sweet songß iv tbe ear of the de fac o government, but to secretly recognize her majesty, tha queen." [Laughter aud applausa.] Tbe vote was then taken on the Licey amendment aud it was lost without di vision. The committee then rose, Savers presented the conference re HOUSE PROCEEDINGS.

Nearly Every Royal Family in Europe Kepre.euted at the Weddlaf, Qutieu Victoria .Heater of Ceremonies. By the AFaocla'ed Press. Coburg, April I!).—Her royal high ness, Princei I Melita of Saxe-Coburg- Gotba, granddaughter of Queen Vic toria, was married today in the chapel of the d''cal palace hen, to Duke Ernest Louis Charles Albert William of Hesse, grandson of Queen Victoria. The weather was splendid and the city wae packed with royal and imperial guests, foreign visitors and German eight-seers At first the sky was overcast and rain waß tha prospect, but by 9 o'clock the sky had cleared. The ducal chapel, which had been thoroughly redecorated for the iccasion, ia an ancient oblong building, full of elaborate paintings and frescoes, its interior being surrounded by a gallery supported by broad, flu pillars, ten . nating in frescoed arches. On tbe plain altar, draped with crimson velvet and gold, stood a handsome ivory and ebony crucifix, flanked by tall waxen tapers and gold candlesticks. Garlands of fir hung gracefully from pillar to pillar, and the pulpit was em bedded in beautiful white flowers. This being primr-ise day in England, in honor of Queen Victoria primroses brought especially from England formed one of the leading features of the elab orate decorations of the grand little chapel. According to the ceremonial decided upon by Queen Victoria (all the arrange ments had been submitted to her in Florence), the marriage was to take place at noon precisely in the private chapel of tbe ducal echloss, witn full state, in ths Lutheran style. Following the German precedent, there were no bridesmaids, but the bride, supported by ber younger sister and Queen Victoria, was accompanied to the cbapsl by the duke of Saxe-Co burg-Gotba (tbe duke ot Edinburg), the an arm-chair in~ront ol a row oTais tinguiahed goesta. Next, Emperor William ol Germany, by whose side waa the duchess of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (the Grand Duchess Marie of Russia), slater to the czar. The' ceremony commenced with a brilliant and impressive function. In the wedding procession Emperor Will iam escorted the ducheaa of Coburg and ex-Empress Frederick followed alone. The prince of Wales and the czarowitz came next, walking together. The bridegroom entered with supporters, his uncle, Prince Henry of Hesse, ami his brother-in-law, Prince Henry of Prussia, The bride came in last, sup ported by her father and brother and accompanied by her sisters. The prince of Wales sat beside ex-Empress Frederick of Germany (eld eat daughter of Queen Victoria). Then came the czarowitz. Distingulsed guests occupied the front seats on the other aide of the aisle, corresponding with those occupied by Queen Victoria, Em peror William and the duchess of Oo hurg. Other important personages filled three rows behind the royal and imperial notabilities already mentioned, but the suites of court officials and min isters in attendance remained standing throughout the ceremony. Among other distinguished persons were the duke and duchess of Con naught; Prince and Princess Henry of Prussia; Grand Duke and Grand Duchesa Vladman of Rnaaia; Grand Duke Sengius of Russia and wife, form erly Princess Elizabeth of Hessee-Darrn atadt: Princess Alexander of Hesse ; the crown prince and princess of Roumania; the hereditary prince and princess of Haxe-Memingen ; Prince and Princess Phillips of Coburg; Prince George of Greece; Prince Aribert of Anhalt and Prince Henry and Princeas Louise of Battenburg. The distinguished assemblage of ladies in court toilets, sparkling with jewels, contrasted beautifully with the gorgeoua uniforms of the male portion of the guests. The elaborate floral decorations, the grandeur of the old chapel and the natural solemnity of the aurroundings, formed a magnificent spectacle, not ri valed in recent years in a.iy country. Q.ieen Victoria wore the broad blue riboon of the Order of the Garter, Upon her head eparkled a magnificent crown of diamonds. Her majesty remained seated turoughout; age and iufirmitiea preventing her standing with the otber weddding guests, who arose during cer tain portiona oi the marriage ceremo nies. The general superintendent of tbe Lutheran church, Vastar Muellen, offici ated, assisted by the court chaplain of the grand duchy of Hesse and five local clergymen. After an address had been delivered, the bride aud bridegroom plikhted troths, wedding rings were ex changed aad the benediction was pro nounced, after which Mendelssohn's wedding march was grandly played, and the ceremony was at an end. The newly married couple afterwards kissed their relatives in turn and tbe procession reformed and left tbe chapul at 1 o'clock amid the booming of cannon and tbe joyful ringing of all the church bells within miles of the ducal chapel. The whole party, Bbortly after leaving tne chapel, entered the Kieeendal, whete breakfast was served. An especially hearty cheer was raised by the crowds in the plaza when the newly-married couple and the duke nnd duchess of Co burg crossed tbe square to tbe palace. Tooth brushes.

Ex-Prreldent Harrison Makes a Political Harangue nt < h«ynne. Cheyenne, Wyo., April 19.—Ex-Presi dent Harrison arrived here at 3:30 this afternoon. He was met at the train by tbe Lincoln club and given an informal reception during the 20 minutes' etop of ths train. Fully 3000 people were at the depot. The military band from Fort Russell furnished music for the oc casion. The ex-president stepped to tbe rear platform of the train and was intro duced in a neat speech by ex-Senator Warren. In reply VI r. Harrison said an ex-president should be teen and not heard, but that he bad however, not left any of his convictionu upon public questions. His political convictions bad been strongly conformed by the experi ence of the last year. "It does not matter who is the presi dent, but >t does very much matter what the legislative policies of the gov ernment at Washington are. I beiieve thoy should be thoroughly American. I have never seen how a policy conlu open and crowd the workshops of the old countries, and at the same time keep ours busy. A so-called Industrial army is gathering from all parts of the coun try and hurrying to Washington to tell our representatives that the tt irlErncn cf t l ) country are iv dis'ress and in need oi relief. I believe that if Republican policies bad not be i threatened we should cot have witnessed this appall ing manifestation. We shall gst out of this somehow. How soon and by what method the great patriotic people of tbe country willdeterniine. I thank you all that your respeot for me has survived my term of oflice." His speech was greeted with piolonged applause, i.nd when be coacluded hun dreds crowded on the platform to shake bis band. He thought the outlook for Republi can sucoesß in the coming elections was most enooiir.,: i.„' and believed tbat In diana would si i t the hall rolling by the earlier Republican successes in that state. THE KMKIRASr WAR. Annotation Line* Will Stake It Hot for the Union Paolflo. Cilicaoo, April 19.—The open declara tion of war againßt the Union Pacific railroad by Chairman Caldwell, of the Western Passenger association, yester day, was issued today, and beginning April 22d tbs fight '(ill be on for good. The association lines declare that they have been forced into tbe fight by tbe persistent demoralization in western rates for which the Union Pacific has been responsible. The latter road, while the association lines were endeav oring to persuade it back into the asso ciation, quietly swallowed, by means ot \'»„.,B9Utta,Vt. jatl of the emigrant association lines are not particularly hopeful of getting the passengers away from the Union Pacific, but tbsy can make tbat line carry emigrants for rates that will entail a loss, and thsy are de termined to do so. Some anxiety is felt by tbe association regarding tbe at titude of the Chicago and Northwestern, although tbat road has announced that it will side with the association. Its financial interests are rather against a break with the Union Pacific, and that is a mighty persuasion for any railroad I during the present depression of busi- ! ness. CABLS FLIIBIS.

H.O'Britm, George H. Blanchard and Frank Kar.e,, leaders of the army of unemployed, were taken to Colton from the cooi.tr jail this morning, for preliminary exsea ination before Justice Bingham, on :'"ie charge of inciting to riot. Before pro ceeding with tbe hearing Viuette vi'AS sentenced to pay a Sue of $20 or spend 20 days in jail upon bis conviction of attempting to defraud the railroad out of faro. On tbe charge of inciting to riot, L. M. Sprecher. aasiatant district attornov, ap peared for the state, assisted hv X, Pi. Bledsoe of this city and W. A. liairii of Los Angeles, special attorney for tbe Southern Pacific railroad. The defend ants were represented by Louis Lucksl of Lob Angeles. Deputy Sheriff Reeves was tho first witness sworn for tho prosecution, a:-.i testified be was in Cotton ou the morn ing of tbe 14th instant aud saw defend ants and 200 other men ou top of South ern Pacific cars. He testified tbat Vin ette said it would take 300 men to arrest the men who were tbere. He stated also that tbere was no trouble in effect ing the arrests, as the men came along very peaceably. Tbe city marshal of Colton, J. W. McCarty, testified that he saw the army in Colton when tbey boarded tha cars, and rsquested the army not to stay near tbe depot, but to take a camp about half a mile out of town, whioh they re fused to do. He also ordered tbem to I get off the platform of the freight depot, time a freight train pulled into tbe de pot, and the marshal told tbe army they could not get on the train there. Members of ths army told the marshal they would see abont that. As soon aa the train stopped the whole gang of 200 men made a rush for it and piled themselves on top of tbe cars, although tbe marshal had told them not to get on. Tbe train wae then sidetracked by orders of the j company, and tbe men remained on top jot the cars all night. In the morning the marshal and Special Detective Doley, in the employ of the Southern Pacific, played a hose of the city water works on tbe men, drenching many of them to the skin. No one offered re sistance but allowed tbe officers to play water on them, and the men still re fused to get off the cars. Sheriff Booth also ordered the men off the cars. Citi zens armed with shotguns and rifles then put in an appearance and the sheriff arrested the leaders, the defend ants iv this proceeding, and the balance of the army were surrounded and guarded for the next 24 hours. M. T. Bowler, special officer of tha Southern Pacific, gave substantially tha same statement of tbo case. F. R. Bright, Southern Pacific local agent at Colton. testified that he wbb ordered to sidetrack the traiu if thu men refused to get off; thtt iv tbe morning three special officers of the road ordered tbe men to get off the cars, and they refused. The men were boisterous during the night, making a great deal of noise. He stayed up all night aud re ported tbe Btate of affairs to the head officers of the cum pany. With the testimony of these witnesses the prosecution rested. Vinette was sworn iv his own behalf and testified tbat there was no riotous conduct and no complaints from people living near there, aud no one wae dis turbed. Bernard, another defendant, testified that tbere was no riotous conduct. Some of the other defendants testified to substantially the same tacts. Mrs. L. Pence, a woman living in Col ton, an open sympathizer of the army, testified that she lived near the place where the men got ou the cars, and she heard no riotou3 conduct and saw mottl ing dieorderly. Mrs. RosellaColton, S. M. Stobie, Miss Bertie Pence and T. W. Wickes, resi dents of Colton, testified to a similar Btate of affairs. About 5 o'clock tbe case was submit ted to the court for bis decision, wbe promptly held tbe defendants to rniivc tbe charge aud fixed their bail at $500 each, in default of which tbey were re manded to tbe custody of the sheriff and returned to the county jail, where they now tie awaiting trial Oelore tbe superior court. The army still remains in carap near the railroad depot, but is from day to day diminishing in numbers. The offi cers oi the law at Colton state if the men violate the law in the least degree they intend to punish them to the fur thest limit, as the men refuse to mnvo on unless supplied with food and rail road fares lo Doming. The army tbis morning received a wagon load of provisions from tbe Farm ers' alliance at Highlands. Forager* are soliciting food from families on the outskirts of town ; also from Riverside merchants, who have given considerable aid. The army attended Baptist prayer meeting last night. The pastor iavited them to attend special meetings every night, saying he would not talk oa army subjects, but give them straigbt gospel sermons. The men accepted. Part of the army are very sullen ovee
