Kress man Murray Says South Carolina

Chicago Feb 6 The Tribunes
Washington special Friday night says
President elect McKinleys right to his
seat may not be officially declared next
Complications have arisen which
may furnish a dramatic interruption
to the counting of the electoral votes

George Washington Murray the only

the chief actor in the dramatic epi
He has just returned from South
Carolina where he was in consultation
with the leading republicans of the
Palmetto state He is armed with a
monster petition signed by thousands
of republicans of the state protesting
against the counting of the electoral
vote and asking for an investigation of
the election laws and the state consti
The claim is made that the election
laws and the state constitution upon
which they are based are not in accord
with the federal constitution
While the dispute over the vote of
South Carolina can not in any way af
fect the final result it may give rise to
complication of a serious nature The
best authorities agree that the petition
can not be ignored and the investiga
tion of the precedents shows that
when such a protest is entered the
count must immediately stop until the
question is settled
Whatever the immediate result of
this attempt to discredit South Caro
linas vote may be there is no doubt
that the programme which is to be
thus inaugurated is a part of a gigan
tic scheme on the part of southern re
publicans to overthrow the iegistra
tion and election laws in various
southern states where the Negro pre
dominates but his vote is not a factor
It is proposed by the promotors of
this big political scheme to secure

No Enthusiasm in Havana Over the Pro
posed Reforms Cubans Believe They
Will Have No Effect in Stopping the War
Havana Feb 6 News of the pro
posed reforms contained in the long
cable dispatches from Madrid to La
Lucha and the Diario de la Marina
has not produced great enthusiasm
because no one here believes that the
reforms will have any ef
fect in stopping the war The
only persons who appear satisfied
are a few Spaniards of the old reform
ist party the officials and a half dozen
autonomists who follow the marquis
of Montoro The thoughtful element
of all classes is very much disappoint
ed The Cubans see in the scheme
merely a rehash of the futile Abarzuza
law of 1895 without any real conces
sions to the colony
Those who are interested in tariff
reforms say that the plan of Senor
Canovas can have no practical benefit

They do not see furthermore in
what degree the general budget of the
island will be reduced as the council
of administration will be merely a con
sultative body and the final decision
on all financial matters will depend on
Spain The debt also is a general topic

Duty on Tin Plates
Washington Feb 6 The ways and

a definite conclusion as to the rates of
duty on tin plates in the new tariff
bill The chances are that the rate
will be finally placed at a point be

McKinley tariff the republicans be
lieving that the tin plate industry in
this country does not require the pro
tection now that was given to it under
the McKinley bill as it is now no in

The Wine and Spirit Schedule of
McKinley Law Adopted
Most of the Other Schedules Go Back to
the McKinley Rates Barley Effgs Salt 4
Starch Salt Meat Extracts Salt
Meats Poultry Among Them
Washington Feb 5 The work of-
framing the new tariff law has been
well advanced by the republican mem
bers of the ways and means committee
and the United Associated Presses was
Thursday enabled -to report progress
with leading schedules --
The last of the formal hearings of
interested parties was given on the
11th of January so that only a little
more than three weeks has passed
The chemical schedule which comes
first on the list the earthenware and
glass schedule the metal schedule and
the cotton schedule have all been put
in tentative form with some contro
verted questions still open and the
agricultural schedule was nearly con
cluded Thursday
The wine and spirit schedule of the
McKinley bill has been adopted almost
without the erasure of a line One of
the most important changes is on live
cattle which are covered by a blanket
provision of the existing law for all
live animals at 20 cents ad valorem
The rate under the new law will be 5
per head on cattle more than one year
old and 25 per cent ad valorem on cat
tle valued at above 20 This is
thought to establish a more equitable
rate than the McKinley law which
imposed ten dollars per head on cattle
more than one year old without regard
to value and is sufficiently protective
against the importation of Mexican
The rate on barley is the McKinley
rate of 30 cents per bushel which was
demanded by the American barley
growers Hay is at t per ton the
same as in the McKinley law and hops
at 15 cents per pound which is also an
extract from the McKinley law Vege
tables all go back to the McKinley
rates potatoes being put at 25 cents
per bushel and flaxseed at 30 cents per
bushel Other items on which the
McKinley rates are restored are salt 12
cents per hundred pounds in packages
and 8 cents in bulk starch 2 cents
per pound salt meat extracts 35
cents per pound salt meats 25 per
cent milk 5 cents per gallon and
poultry 20 per cent
Eggs go back to five cents per dozen
Oranges and lemons will be adjusted
in a manner to meet the wishes of the
California fruit growers The rates
have not yet been absolutely fixed but
will involve a differential specification
from that of the McKinley law Un
der the chemical schedule soap made
of caustic of soda and kindred chemi
cals remains at the rate fixed in the
Wilson law which is considered suf
ficiently protective The xDrincipal
oils are left at existing rates except in
the case of linseed and flaxseed oil
where an advance was required be
cause of the restoration of the McKin
ley duties on the raw material Re
fined borax is advanced fromtwa
cents to three cents per pound
which is somewhat under the McKin
ley rate Boracic acid remains at three
cents per pound the rate fixed by ex
isting law while borate of lime is in
creased to two cents per pound There
are only slight changes in dye stuffs
and their elements
Lead in ores is fixed at one cent per
pound pig lead at two cents and
whitelead and lead acetates at two
and one half cents These rates are
considerably less than those of the Mc
Kinley law
Castor oil is left at 35 cents per gal
lon the rate fixed under existing law
The cotton schedule has not yet been
quite completed but there will be few
changes except upon the fine yarns
and the costly fabrics The schedule
was satisfactor in its construction to
many of the manufacturers when it
was put in its present from and they
are asking only minor changes
Wines and spirits will be made satis
factory if possible to the California
grape growers and manufacturers but
as indicated this can be accomplished
by the restoration of the McKinley
rates The iron steel schedule like
cottons was left in a f airty satisfac
tory condition to the manufacturers
by the present law and will not be
changed except upon a few special ar
ticles like tin plate and cotton
ties and some of the forms of tube
steel There may be changes also upon
the more finished articles of manufac
ture like surgical instruments and
tools but the advances will not be

The rates on decorated china
were put exceptionally low in the
present law because of irritation be

ployes The new rates will be specific
far as practicable and plate glass will
be subjected to some advances Glass

Mother when you see your daughter lanpnifl
and indifferent to things that usually interest a

that glassy appearance in her eyes when your
daughter tells you that even the weight of her
