ence six weeks without reaching an agreement." "The trouble in 1894," retorted Bailey, "was that we were trying to run Ihe Democratic party with a lot of mug wumps In command." (Laughter and applause on the Democratic side.) Dingley continued' his efforts to ftc a time for a vote, the Republicans, during the discussion, crying: "Vote, vote, Vote." "I suggest we wait until sugar stork goes up a little higher," saldi Bailey, sar castically. "It has gone up Sfa share since the agreement w as reported." All efforts to reach an agreement hav ing failed, Dingley opened his speech on the conference report. He took up each schedule, explaining In detail the changes made, and following closely the formal statement given out by the com mittee. Concerning the sugar schedule, Mr. Dingley read from the official statement, adding brief comments. By the new ar rangement about $6,000,000 increase of revenue would be realized, as the in crease had been placed on raw sugarsat the point where revenue would be re ceived and at the same time the beet sugar industry would receive substan tia! benefit. When Mr. Dingley referred to the elim ination of the stamp tax. Mr. Todd of Michigan (Dem.) asked him if he "con fessed" that they had abandoned the idea rf taxing the stack gamblers of Wall Btre"et. "Not at all." replied Mr. Dingley. "We discovered that the sales on Wall street could not be followed. No record Is vkbpt. The machinery of collection would be too complex." I Mr. Cooper of Wisconsin (Rep.) want ed *n explanation of the net result of tthe change in the sugar schedule. Mr. Dingley. after a calculation, af firmed that the refiner of sugar under the present Wilson law had a differential of 22% cents per hundred pounds as against 12% cents In the pending hill as agreed to by the conferees. As to the question of revenue to be raised by the bill. Mr. Dingley pointed out the dim cutty resulting from the large anticipat ory Importations. The bill next year, he calculated, would raise $225,000,000, $73. --000,000 more than the present law. Over $40,000,000 had been lost in this year's revenues by the importations of wool and sugar and other things, the duty on ■which was raised in the bill, so that he calculated that the bill this year would raise $185,000,000. . Mr. Dingley de-clared that there was no doubt that the revenue would not only be ample* to meet the expenditures of the government, but allow a Repub lican administration to begin again to pay off the principal of the public debt, which had been increased by the late administration. In conclusion Dingley received round after round of applause from his Republican colleagues Ivy pre dicting as a of the enactment of this bill a rise of prices and a return of prosperity. Wheeler of Alabama. Democrat, open ed the debate forthe Democrats, criticis ing the bill as the most vicious and bur densome ever imposed on the American people. Swanson of Virginia, Democrat, a member of the ways and means commit tee, to whom Wheeler yielded a portion of his time, devoted his attention to as sailing the sugar schedule agreed upon by the conferees. Lacey asked Mr. Swanson whether the trust had not made great profits in 1894 by anticipatory importations, just as the trust probably would make great profits now. Their profits were estimat ed at $15,000,000. Might not this account for the increased value of the stock, he asked. If the trust was to make $15,000,000 out of the anticipatory importations, Swan son replied, it was not entitled to a dif ferential. "We cannot prevent anticipatory im portations." said Laceye "You could do what Secretary Gage recommends," replied Mr. Swanson. "You could place an internal revenue tax on the sugar which has been import ed. If you want to strike a blow at the trust why don't you follow the advice of your secretary of the treasury?" One of the greatest demonstrations of the debate occurred when Mr. Danham of Texas, Democrat, who followed, paid a tribute to, William- J. Bryan. The Democrats cheered for several minutes, and many of the spectators joined in the demonstration. ' Mr. Kelly of North Dakota, Populist, thought that if an anti-trust amendment had been placed in the bill its most dan gerous fangs would have been drawn. Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio, Republican, In terrupted Mr. Kelly to say that the In crease of the duty on lead ore was placed in the-senate bill by Populist sen ators and held in the bill by the Popu lists on the conference committee. Mr. Lewis asked Mr. Grosvenor wheth !er it was not a fact that the duties on white lead gave the lead trust $3,500,000 of protection. "I do not know, and I do not care," re plied Mr. Grosvenor, smiling. "I knew the latter was true," respond ed Mr. Lewis with his most debonnair air. "The Republican party does not care what outrage it commits." The house then, at 6 p. m., took a recess until S p. ra., under the agreement made early in the day. At 8 oclock, when the night session be gan, the galleries were crowded, many ladieß being present. Dingley stated at the ouuset that he hoped to secure a vote by 10 oclock. Bailey said 10 oclock: was too early, but he thought the vote could be taken by 11 oclock. He would not, however, make a definite agreement upon the vote. Thereupon Dingley gave notice that he would move the previous question not later than 11 oclock. In the galleries were many distin guished personages of both sexes. The Republicans still pursued the tac tic*; they had adopted during the day session. None of them claimed the floor and the minority were compelled to put forward their speakers. Therefore, after McDowell of Ohio and Berry of Ken tucky, both Democrats, made brief speeches, Bailey, the Democratic leader, who had been reserving his speech for the close, took the floor. He made a carefully prepared argument, dealing more with the general principles in volved than with details. Time and again in the progress of his remarks the Democrats were aroused by his elo quence to a high pitch of enthusiasm, Just before the close of Bailey's remaik.-s the most sensational incident of the do bate occurred. He had been assailing the doctrine of free raw materials as a comparative innovation in the Demo cratic creed. In order to demonstrate that it was a product of ClevelandSfim, he sent to the clerk's desk and had read an. extract from a newspaper comment ing on the fact that in the Forty-ninth congress Senator Mills, then a member of the house, McMillan of Tennessee and two other Democratic members of the ways and means committee had voted against free wool. McMillin jumped to his feet and demanded to know whether it was charged that he had'voted against free wool. "William E. Morrison told me so with his own lipi." replied Mr. Bailey, fac ing Mr. McMillin, whose face was Hushed. "Not only that, but he said and Senator Mills voted against some reduc tions in the metal schedules." "Since the gentleman has s.?en fit to attack uny record and to. misrepresent me—" began Mr. McMillin. but Mr. Balky quickly disclaimed any purpose of attacking him. "I desire to commend your action then." said he. The disclaimer being accepted, Mr. McMiliin hotly asked in turn why Mr. Bailey had voted In the ways and means committee against the woolen schedule of the present law when It w as offered as a substitute for the high rates in the pending measure. " A wave of applause ran over the Dem ocratic side at this question, but it was di owntd in a perfect storm of applause of approval that greeted Mr. Bailey's reply that never as long as he was In congress would he vote for BO per cent, on woolen goods and no duties on raw wools. The Republicans and the gal leries joined in this demonstration. "How could the gentleman from Ten nessee," he continued, when the ap plause had subsided, "vote for free wool in the face of the Chicago platform which he helped to defend?" "The Chicago platform did not take the back track on the principle of tariff for revenue." replied Mr. McMillin. "I'll prove that it did," answered Mr. Bailey. "Is Mr. Robertson of Louisiana in the house?" he asked. looking about him. Rut Mr. Robertson was not pres ent and Mr. Bailey proceeded to argue that the Chicago platform did return to the "old Democratic theory." He said the present Democratic organ ization sought to rescue the party from those who were wrecking it. When the party was making new recruits the wreckers had deserted it. When he repudiated the "Cleveland heresy," and announced the doctrine that "all taxes should be laid for reve nue," the Democrats in sympathy with him cheered lustily. McMillin, who had twenty minutes, consumed this time In denouncing the sugar schedule, which, he said, had add ed $12,000,000 to the price of sugar cer tificates today, and in replying to Bai ley's remarks about his record. Any statement from any quarter that he ever advocated a duty on woo], McMlllir, declared, was unjust to him and Incor rect. He had been consistent. Payne and Dingley successively took the floor for some closing remarks. Th-: former devoted his time to a defense of the sugar schedule. He figured out a differential in favor of the refiner In the present law at the prices prevailing In 1894 of 52% cents per 100 pounds. Tak ing Swansea's illustration of the 92 de gree sugars, Payne figured on the basis of the amount of raw sugar refined (HHi pounds) that the refiner under the present law had a differential of .314 per 100 pounds againsit .173 of differential in the proposed schedule. Dingley openly avowed that the sched ule gave a slight additional protection to refined sugar about tne same time it pas>sed raw sugar along the line. Trust?, he said, could not be eradicated by epi thets. "The way to break down the trustp." he cried, "is to establish a beet sugar factory in every congressional district in the country and make competition. That is the way to clip the wings of ttr trusts " Amid a storm of cheers Dingley then demanded the previous question on the adoption of the conference report. The demand Was sustained by a viva voce vote, and the vote on the adoption of the report followed by yeas and nays. Considerable excitement occurred while the vote was being taken. When the speaker announced fhe vote, ISS ayes, 118 nays, the Republicans broke Into loud cheers. The house then, at 12:17 a. m., took a recess until Wednes day. ZN CONFERENCE Four Hours' Discussion Resulted in an Agreement WASHINGTON, July 19.—The tariff bill was pushed through the conference ence stage today after two hours discus sion before the committee—Republicans and Democrats—held In the senate finance committee room this morning. At the outset the Democratic conferees asked until Tuesday morning to go over the report, saying this course was pre ferable to going over it with the Repub licans. To test this question Vest of Missouri moved an adjournment until tomorrow, which was defeated by a strict party vote. The Democratic con ferees then offered amendments to the report, but were met by the statement that it would merely consume time to urge amendments as they would be re jected. Representative Wheeler of Alabama. Democrat, offered amendments placing cotton bagging and cotton ties on the free list; also, a substitute proposition for rebates on these articles. These and other amendments were withdrawn, however, as there was no prospect of favorable action on them. Shortly be fore noon Dingley moved that the report be submitted to the two houses. This prevailed by a party vote, and the meeting adjourned. There was little flash during the discussion, and the Democratic, members of the conference contented themselves with a protest against the report and the manner of agreeing to it. A PUBLIC STATEMENT WASHINKJTON, July 19 -The Repub lican conferees made a public statement concerning the conference report, Ir. which were reviewed the changes made. Of fugar the statement says: "The House differential between raw arid refined sugars and the general feat ures of the House schedule were pre served, and the Senate amendments in creasing the differential to one-fifth ar.d providing for a reduction of. one-tenth of the duty on raw sugar not above 87 rlegrees, which would have given a duty of 1.39 on 88 degrees of sugar and only 1.2 C on 87 degrees of sugar, were not adopted. "Iv deference to the wishes of those interested in the beet sugar production that the Senate rate of 1.95 on refined sugar might be retained as an increased encouragement to this industry, the duty en raw sugars is Increased seven and one-half hundredths, so as to make the increase ore them the same as the in crease on refined jpugar, and thus leave 'he differential between raw sugar and refined the same as in the House bill. "And to meet the objection which had been urged that the House rates on low grade sugar show higher ad valorem than those on higher grades, the duty or. 75 dtgrees of sugar Is reduced .05 of a cen; and the duty per degree Increased regu larly from ,03 (as proposed In the jiause LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING. JULY 20, 1897 bill) to .035, In-order to raise the duty on raw sugar the same as on refined. "By this arrangement the duty on raw sugar of 100 degrees purits r Is raised from 1.75 (as proposed originally by the House) to 1.825. and the duty on refined sugar raised from 1.575 (as proposed originally by the House) to 1.95, thus giving the same differential of .125 between raw and refined sugars at this point, orig inally given by the House. "As this arrangement will Increase the revenue over $2,000,000 and at the same time give additional encouragement to the production of sugar In thi* coun try. it is thought to be a desirable consum mation." The statement of the Republican con ferees made the following explanation of the changes agreed upon by the con ferees in the schedules other than the sugar schedule: • Metals and manufactures of—The re ductions of duties on some forms of iron and steel proposed by the senate are ac cepted in part as proposed and several new paragraphs arc Introduced not here tofore spcciflically provided for.

The other amendments In the chemical schedule concur with the sen ate in slight reductions of rates on many chemicals and other articles, including linseed' oil, olive oils and coal tar dyes, and an increase on the rateson camphor and ground drugs. .
