Everyone Connected With the Dur

San Francisco July 2he Durrant
murder case ha resolved Itself into
a state of such confusion that i will
require the combined efforts of the
state and the united States supreme
arod for tet ePf
courts to restore it to Its proper legal
I is rumored that Governor Budd
contemplates asking the state supreme
court for a writ of mandate to compel
the warden of San Quentin prison to j
execute the sentence imposed upon i I
I Theodore Durrant on July 9 the date I
under which the murderer was re
prieved This is out of the question
however as the supreme court does
not meet again until the second week
In July While the state officials ap
pear to be in a quandary Durrants
attorneys insist that the appeal to the
United States supreme court acts as a
bar to any and All proceedings In the

the senate today to the exclusion dfjall I
other subjects
Both provisions were agreed to alU
though the debate gn the reciprocity
clause was protracted to 6 p m1
j Shortly before adjournmenti Al
lison endeavored to secure far agree
ment on the time of a final vote but
Mr Teller would not consent to fixing
the time until all proposed amendments
had been submitted to the senate
As Mr Allison was not prepared to
I submit these amendments he withdrew
his request and the time for the final
vote was left open although there is1 i
still hope that i willbe reached to
The retaliatory clause provides that
whenever any country bestows an ex I
port bounty on any article there shall
be levied in addition to the duties pro
vided hy the act an additional duty
equal to the amount of the bounty The
ea ni hiobf g r j
clause was agreed to33 to 19the two

The amendment brought out much

Early In the day Mr Wellington I
II Rep Md rising to a question oftper
sonal privilege vehemently upheld his <
senatorial prerogatives on the matter
of federal appointments
The Proceedings
Washington July 2Senator Wellington
lington of Maryland rose to a question
of personal privilege soon after the
opening of the senate today and inn
vehement voice referred to publications I
concerning a conflict said to have taken
place yesterday before the committee
on commerce in relation to the appoint
ment ofB H Warner jr as consul to
Leipsic The senator declared that the
publication was unjust and sought to
embroil lim in conflict with the presl
dent of the United States Mr Wel
lington said he understood the com
mittee meetings relative to appoint
ments were secret and sacred and he
could not believe that any members
of the committee gave the information
Under the circumstances who he said
could have inspired this report but I
that creature present in the commit j
tee room yesterday
I was alleged that he had attacked
President McKinley but this too he
declared was false He was a free man
and he reserved it to himself to criti
cise apy appointment He had done so
yesterday in a respectful manner and
should el occasion arise he would do I
so again
I the price of patronage is to be
servile obedience then I refuse to give
it exclaimed Mr Wellington He
spoke again of the creature respon
sible for the report and then closed
with an emphatic statement as to his
prerogatives I these prerogatives
were to be interfered with then he
proposed to make war
I will remain right here exclaimed
Mr Wellington striking his desk a re
sounding blow No man ever struck
me a blow that I did not return it with
interest and they will find me on deck
if the struggle is to begin
After this incident the tariff bill vas
taken up
Mr White of California In behalf of j
i fg el i
the minority of the finance committee
asked Mr Allison as to the programme
on tea beer the antitrust amendment I
and other important questions
Mr Allison responded that an amend I I
ment relating to the Increase of the i
r IU LV U Ut4 4 tU LIUII lIt IU
would be brouslft in later in the day
As to other questions a little more
time was desired
Mr Teller of Colorado Inquired what
the committee or caucus contemplated
doing on the question of decreasing the
tax on distilled spirits in view of the
letter written by the secretary of the
Mr Allison answered that the whole
question of distilled spirits had been I
gone over Personally he believed a
lower tax would be productive of
greater revenue but he thought it un II
wise to go into the complex question
in connection with this tariff bill
Mr Teller said the letter of the sec
retary of the treasury indicated a desire j
for legislation on this subject Then
the senator added Before this bill
I is disposed of I will discuss what
should be done In decreasing the tax
on spirIts I will show that the com
mittee Is giving away 2000000 a
month to the detriment of consumers
who bear the tax burdens and to the
detriment of honest dealers in dis
tilled spirits
The consideration of the bill then
proceeded The paragraph relating to
nickel was changed making the rates
on nickel ore 3 cents per pound on thg
nickel contained therein nickel matter
4 cents per pound nickel and nickel j
oxide alloy etc S cents per pound
This brought the senate to the re I
taliatory clause socalled providing
that whenever any country pays a
bounty on any article then the im
portation of that article into the
United States there shall be levied in
addition to the duties otherwise im
posed by this act an additional duty
equal to the net amount of such bounty
or grant however the same be paid or
Mr Gray of Delaware spoke against
the amendment saying he regarded it as
opening the way to a disregard of our
> 1
I treaty obligations with at least two
European countries Germany and
I AustriaHungary He read the protest
of Baron Von Thielmann the German
I ambassador and Baron Von Wengel
mulled the Austrian minister against
the proposed discriminatory duty
Mr Caffery of Louisiana differed with
Mr Gray arguing that no breach of
International obligations was involved
and that retaliation of this character
was hi the nature of selfpreservation
to tvhich any country could resort when
Its industries were threatened by the
payment of foreign export bounties
Mr White of California argued that
if Germany had the right to give an
export duty which in effect operated
against the United States the United
States should adopt measures to offset
this and he would not even call it retaliatory
Mr Chandler of New Hamshire
said he would vote for the retaliatory
clause with extreme reluctance He
I had been told that Germany would be
gin a course of commercial warfare
against the United States and he
i would make sacrifices to prevent fric
tion between the empire of Germany
and the United States But the sen
ator said he did not see how this retaliatory
taliatory clause could be avoided if the
protective character of the bill was
to be preserved The retaliatory clause
was agreed to 3310 Two Democrats
Caffery and McEnery of Louisina
and Messrs Allen and Kyle voted with
the Republicans iruthe i affirmative and
Messrs Mantle and Teller with the
51 Democrats In tqe negative
The reciprocity section was next con
sidered Mr Allison offering the
Alson ofering new
provision the purport of which has
been heretofore rrlven I was rhnnirerl
i j slightly by providing that the reel
I procity treaty be tu by and with
the consent of the senate
In brief the section authorizes the
I i president to negotiate commercial I
I i treaties to extend more than five years
and granting a reduction of the duties
j Imposed by this act to the extent of i j
I not more than 20 nor cent thereof or
j I for the transfer during that period of j
designated articles from the dutiable I
I to the free list being the natural prod
ucts of such foreign countries and not
the United States
I Mr Mills of Texas stated in a few
words that the proposed amendment I
sought to deprive the house of repre
sentatives of its constitutional right to
originate and participate in all revenue I
mop suros
Mr Vest took the same view while I
Mr Allison and Mr Hoar contended
that the participation of the house In
the passage of this bill was an author I
ization of the treaties Mr Vest spoke
of the assaults of this bill on Ger I I
tsA abl
many Japan Argentina and other
countries and declared that not one of
these countries could want a rpeSnroc
ity treaty with us after being thus assaulted I
Mr Lindsay of Kentucky referred to I
the recent trip of South American offi I
cials to cities of the United States with j I
a view to encouraging trade and said I
I I it would be futile when the American
people by this bill turned their backs
on the rest of the world and made com
merce a crime
Mr Morgan said the Unitedf States
supreme court had passed upon the
I reciprocity clauses of the McKinley law
and I had held that itrin no way disre
garded the rights of the house of rep
The provision he said
Te reciprocity r
iduced the severity of the bill and he
would support
Mr Gray supporteoT the reciprocity
amendment saying the treaties con I
templated were clearly within i the
treaty making Dower
Mr Teller argued that a grave ques
tion was involved in taking from the I
house of representatives the power to
cooperate in making reciprocity treat
ies I was too grave a question to be
brought into the senate during the
closing hours of the tariff debate The I
senator said he wanted to vote for some
reciprocity clauses but not for one In I
violation of the constitution
The reciprocity clause was agreed to
30 to 15two Democrats Gray and
Morgan and Messrs Harris of Kansas I
and Heitfeld Populists voting wIth the
Republicans in the affirmative and
Messrs Teller and Stewart with the I
Democrats in the negative Just be
fore adjourning Mr Allison tried to se
cure an agreement on a time for a final
vote but Mr Teller l said it was useless
to try to fix a time for a vote until sen
ators knew what amendments were to I
be proposed
