Grand Army Encampment at Boston
The Presidents Arrival
WASHINGTON Aug 1 After prelimi
nary business the Senate resumed consid
eration of the tariff bill the pending ques
tion being Plumbs amendment to reduce
the additional duty on iron or steel hoops
cut to length for bailing purposes from
2110 to 1110 cents per pound Tho amend
mendment was rejected three Republican
I Senators Ingalls Paddock and Plumb vot
ing in the afllrmative
McPherson moved an amendment by
making the duty on iron or steel hoops 50 I
per cent ad valorem instead of 1 cent
1110 cents and 1310 cents per pound
Sherman spoke of the little progress that
had been made with the bill Nearly three
weeks he said had been spent upon it and
not onefifth had been disposed of Unless
tho Senators on the other sido would bo
satisfied with one vote upon a question and
then co right along the Senate would have
to continue in perpetual session He
dIJ not wish to seo any change in the
rules of the Senate if it could be
avoided and if the other side would forego
a needless repetition of amendments and
of yea and nay votes the Senators might
soon see daylight and soon be ablo to go to
their respective homes The bill had been
passed over and been considered by a
committee of the Senate its general out
line being on the scale of a protective
tariff even of a high protective tariff
Republican Senators did not deny that it
was a tariff that would protect American
industries and build up newly what could
bo emDlcved in this onuntrv It was 1
pretty high protective tariff and there I
were some points in it on which he would
be willing to yield to Still in several im
portant particulars it was below the bill
passed by the Senate two years ago I
Deemed the Senate ought to make more
progress with the bill
Vest said the Senator from Ohio had
stated the bill was acceptable to his sido of
the chamber The records do not show that
to be tho fact On the other hand the
most aggressive attacks made upon the bill
had come from that side of the chamber
and from the state that gavo the largest
majority for the Republican party in the
late election The record would also show
that proportionately a large number of
Democratic Senators responded every time
the roll had been called He gave notice that
every item in the bill would be discussed if
necessary unless it was prevented by force
applies in some sort of a fashion The dis
cussion having turned dn farming property
the statement wasjnado by Vest that there
was much degradation in some of the best
farming counties in Pennsylvania and
Cameron remaaked that while the state
ment was correct the tariff was not in his
opinion the cause of it its cause was the
demonitization of silver in 1ST8 Ever since
that act the price of land andarm products
had decreased Since tho passage of the
silver cent bill prices had risen some 20 per
Teller said that as to the question of haste
in passing the bill ho was not disposed to
deny its opponents a fair and free discus
sion He was willing to stay and discuss
the tarf question or low it to be dis
cussed because he believed the American
people wanted to know whether the bill was
a proper revenue tariff Finally a veto was
reached on McPhersons amendment and it
was rejected 1
The paragraph relating to tinned plate
having been reached Vest said it was a
bold naked attempt by the Pittsburg man
ufacturers to create another monopoly in
their own interests against the consumers
of the United States He moved to reduce
the rate from 2 210 cents per pound to 1
Edmunds asked leave t offer an order to
bo printed and go over It is to the effect
that during the consideration of the tariff
billno Senator shall speak more than once
and not longer than five minutes on
one amendment without leave of the Senate
Such leave is to be granted or denied with
out debate and without any other motion or
proceeding cuept such a relates to pro
viding a quorum until tho bill shall be
ready pass to it third reading No gen
eral motion in relation to it other than to
take it up is to Do in order all appeals are to
be determined at once and without debate
Finally Edmunds withdrew the order say
ing he would present it again tomorrow

Colorados Exhibit at Chicago
PUEBLO Colo Aug l1he unique idea
given outlrora Milwaukee that the brew

atihe Worlds fair of beer kegs bottles
and other paraphernalia of the beer in
dustry has given additional interest to the
wish that tho Colorado universal palace
just a it is now being erected in this city
maybe rebuilt at Chicago as an important
part of the Colorado exhibit The columns
would each be built of a different stone
while upon the inside the native splendor
of mineral specimens taken from hundreds
mines would be heightened by the rays
from 2500 electric lights The only hind
rance would be the cost which including
the value of the specimens would be in tho
neighborhood of half u million dollars
There is a genuine working order for the
first part of tho programme and it is safe
to say that no attraction at Chicago would
be more generously visited The advance
in silver has put the miners and mine own
ers in splendid humor and it is safe to pre
dict that the scheme will be worked out

OMAHA Aug 1lSpeciat telegram to
TUB HERALD The announcement of the I
coming removal of R F Baxter superin i
tendent of the Wyoming division has
caused much discussion in Union Pacific
circles I appears that tho general manager
wants Baxters position vacated but has
been at a loss to know how to accomplish
it without making trouble Baxter is re
markably solid with the employees on tho
Wyoming division and if ho was ruthlessly
fired it would undoubtedly create a nice
little muss To avert anything of this
kind Ressiguie wrote a letter conveying
the information that President Adams and
VicePresident Holcoinb were after his
scalp and advising him to send in his
resignation to take effect September 1
Rcssiguie also kindly advised him that that
was better than being discharged and
thought that it would bo a nice thing for
him t give out that ho resigned for the pur
pose of accepting a position under Ed
Dickenson on the Baltimore Ohio
Baxter however couldnt see it that way
and wroteback to Mr Ressiguie that he had
no intention of goins into the wholesale
lying business and he positively declined
t resign and stated moreover that if they
wanted to discharge him they knew how to
do it
This is the story told by one of Baxters
intimate friends and it is substantiated by
a letter from Baxter himself Tho local
Union Pacific officials are very reticent on
the subject and profess to know little or
nothing about it although one or two ad
mit having heard a rumor to tho effect
that it was coming I creates more or
consternation among tho old employees
of the company and some wonder is mani
fested as to who will go next Mr Bexter
is one of the most popular men in the com
panys employ and his removal will cause
general dissatisfaction among the men
undr him

Chicago says The ninety days in which the

association will outlast the agreement
Certain it is that the Alton and St Paul
roads express tho utmost dissatisfaction
with the agreement and they together
wjth alI if notall l tho other members
declare they will not longer continue the
farce Q living up to the terms of agree
ment at the end of ninety days In no in
stance is the fault laid at Chairman
Goddards door The agreement itself and
the conditions made by many of the roads
in signing it renders it impossrible to im
pose penalties which will stick I is
agreed on all hands that Chairman God
third could nave conducted matters more
satisfactorily had there been no agreement
whatever Tho result of the inoperation of
the agreement has been that every road
has done practically as it saw fit render
ing the passenger situation more shaky
even than i was before break in rates i n
January Each road has cause of griev
ance sgainst its competitors and there is
no way under the agreement to St tao
difficulties Especially is there war among
the roads competing for Colorado
busness One road claims the Mis
souri Pacific is to blame for
the whole trouble while other roads lay
the blame on Rock Island and approve
every act of the Missouri Pacific From
every side comes the admitted fact that the
roads are doing exactly as they please and
are cutting rates in a way to put tho manip
ulation of prointerstate commerce act days
to blush Many of the lines are willing and
anxious to withdraw their memberships

Thomas Stevens Interviews te
Great Novelist i
Are Humbugs According to the Count EI3
Views on Temperance The Relations
of the Sexes
Special to THE HERALD Examiner IMspatctu
NEW YORK Aug 10In view of the
prominence which Count Tolstois last
last work Kreutzer Sonata has lately
received by being prohibited transmission
through the mails an interview with tho
famous author undoubtedly will be read
with interest Thomas Stevens who
is traveling through Russia stoppad at tha
country estate of the count and tho cor
respondent sends a four column account of
that isie which is published in this morn
ings Sunday World Stevens says 4Ib
needs only a few minutest social inter
course with Count Tolstoi to discove
that like the rest of us he has his weak
points The count does not disdain notoriety
riety though he may not bo conscious of
i it He possesses a fair share of au
thors vanity in spite of the humiliation oi
spirit and suppression human exaltation
that i the chief foundation of his creed
Tolstoi likes Americans because of all tho
English speaking world they were tho
first to translate read and appreciate his
productions In the matter of land owner
ship Tolstoi is a great admirer of the theo
ries of Henry George He considers
George the greatest American citizen of the
present time Ho believes however in u
system of communal rather than
of national ownershp of land
The count believes that all forms of gov
ernment are humbugs and that tho whole
machinery of law and lawyers courts and
judges is barbarity and Js an excuse for
setting one man above another and enabl
ing the privileged few to rob the many
One cannot talk with Tolstoi for any length
of time without the subject of religion corn
ing to the top Only foolish people he
says trouble their heads about whether
there is or is not a personal God or whether
Christ was or was not more than human
People are mistaken in doing good here in
the hope of future reward This is the es
sence of selfishness to put the best in
humanity on the level of commerce There
is no merit In making a bargain by which
you are to receive double some time in the
future in return for giving a poorer brother
a Kopecs or a crust oi oreau touay Tnis
is not charity but usury pure and simple
Priests ministers and churches the count
holds in no sort of esteem The priests are
part and parcel of the governmental machin
ery for grinding the faces of the poor and
living without work To swing a censor
and chant senseless masses is in his opin
ion stage acting The time wasted on thi
builoonery if devoted to planting and dig
ging potatoes would suffice them to earat
their bread and then there would btmone
of preying on the ignorant and superstltirf
According to the count a minister of
gospel who accepts a salary and lives
is rjohber The only difference betvi
him ana the footpad is that whereas
latter knocks you down and rifles y
pockets the minister gets at the pockets of
honest people by a more ingenious if less
violent process In both cases the results
are tha same both ministers and footpads
eat food that they never produced and
which consequently cannot possibly ba
theirs by right Such is the counts creed
Temperance finds in the great novelist
an enthusiastic supporter He neither
drinks Intoxicating beverages nor smokes
and includes in the term many other indul
gences that the ordinary advocates of tem
perance consider apart from their creed
To him romance has from all time been the
theme of the poet and novelist Tolstoi
deems it a species of moral depravity on a
par with gluttony smoking of opium or in
dulgence in strong drink A person find
ing himself or herself in love should fight
against it as against the opium
habit or any other poisonous thing
Theater going dancingromantic literature
of all kinds anything in short that ex
cites the imagination to c thoughts of love is
intemperance uupiais the aeviiin his
most awful guise
In speaking of the relations of the sexes
Tolstoi talked with the same freedom from
restraint as if he talked of digging potatoes
or mowing hay The countess and her
sister from St Petersburg sat at the other
end of the table on one occasion when the
count was particularly inquisitive about
the natives of East Africa To an ordi
nary mortal the situation would have been
embarrassing in the extreme The ladies
however were busy chatting together and
their ears of course were closed to any
thing the count or I might have said His
interest in the relation of the sexes seemed
to your correspondent abnormal almost
morbid Men and women ho insisted
snouia love one anoiuer umjr as inenas or
as brother and sister Matrimony brought
about by romantic love is an unholy and
unnatural alliance that in nine cases out
of ten resulted in unhappiness for both par
ties to the contract The views expressed
by Posonicheff in Kreutzer Sonata un
doubtedly are those of Tolstoi
Previous to his conversion the count had
been an athiest After ho said he become
convinced that salvation lay in living a
christly life In a truly unselfish sense
the count was for getting lid of his pro
perty forthwith by distributing it among
the peasantry His plan was to descend at
once to the level of the poorest of those
about him and earn a living with the plow
and hoe That this was not done Is due en
tirely to the countess and friends of the
family The wife of Tolstoi Is a buxom
lady who looks about forty She has a
broad matronly figure a kind motherly
face and was the daughter of a St Peters
burg physician She is the mother of
thirteen children of whom nine are living
The eldest daughter and two youngest
children were at home the others were
traveling or away visiting and the eldest
son was officiating as secretary of the com
mission at the Prison congress The
countess acts as her husbands amanuensis
and copyist The copies and corrects all
his manuscripts She seems to be a most
excellent woman Their family life appears
to bo altogether charming both the wife
and children idolize the count The eldest
daughter is I think inclined to be a dis
ciple of her father His nieces also think
their uncle the embodiment of wisdom and
goodness and the only point on which they
openly take issue with him is on the sub
ject of romantic love as denounced in the
Kreutzer Sonata
