yesterday If it bo true that tho

so strong and so powerful that It says
that no tariff bill can pass the Ameri
can Congress in which its privileges
aro not adequately guarded if I
say thatbo true I hopo this IIouso
will never cotiBonfto adjourn I hopo
whatever tho fato of tho general tariff
bill is that this Houso Will not con
sent to au adjournment until It has

sugar on tho froo list
Chairman Wilson has proven him
self a truo and patriotic Democrat a
Democrat for principlo and not for
what thoro is in it What wo need
to day is a few more WilsonBand
tho Democratic party will stand for

will never agree to au adjournment
until tho bill is disposed of and ac
cording to tho Housos idea of tho
Thls stato of affairs convinces mo
moro thoroughly that tho Sonato
should cither bo abolished or that
Senators should bo elected by tho peo
ple Whon It comes to a few Incor
porated trust Senators wanting to
repudiate and destroy tho opinions
tho veins and the grand principles of
the great Democratic party It is time
to call a halt Tlio IIouso of Repre
sentatives must stand firm and get
what tho people want or nothing

It Providos For tho Inspection of
Immigrants on tho Other Sido
Washington July 21 Tho Con
gressional authorities on immigra
tion laws nro much exorcised over
tho passage of Ropresentativo Will
iam A Stones Immigration Bill in
the Houbo yesterday while moBtfof
tho members were watching tho
exciting scenes in tho Senate Tho
Stone bill is far reaching in its ef
fect on the system of inspecting
immigrants ns the entire inspec
tion is transferred to foreign ports
and placed in tho hands of United
Statos Consuls instead of waiting
for inspection at Now York and
other ports when the immigrant
arrives in this country I expect
to see tho bill taken up by tho Sen
ate at an enrly day and passed
said Mr Stone and already sev
eral Senators who recognize the
evils of immigration havo signified
thoir purpose to urge it to speedy
passage Tho present immigration
system has proved a failure Im
migrants keep coming without
reference to restrictions Tho sys
tem is wrong as it leaves tho im
migrant to furnish all tho informa
tion on which he is to bo received
or rejected-
Mr Stono was asked if tho re
moval of the system to foreign
ports would not necessitate a large
force of inspectors or olso give tho
United States Consuls additional
work entitling them to additional
pay No said he Efforts have
been mado to so change the laws as
to let the Treasury Department
appoint the foreign inspectors
Such a chango would necessitate
the creation of a large force of oili
cers but as tho bill stands tho
United States Consuls who aro not
overburdened with work will have
charge of the inspection
It is understood that Senutors
Davis Chandler and Quay will
particularly interest themselves in
the Stono bill with a view to its
early adoption
