SENATE, j The senate committee on finance haying the tariff hill now under consideration report that as the i bill is so crude and will require ; such extensive amendment they j will not ho able to re no it it to the senate before May 1. They have found it necessary to rewrite the administrative clau ses of the bill they were so defec tive us they were passed by the house. ()nly Iwo schedules, chem icals and cottons, have been thus far disposed of. None of the more puzzling schedules, such as wool, sugar, hides &c., have been touch ed as they will he the last to bo revised. The German government has protested against the duty on sugar, claiming that such duty is a violation of the Foster Muinnt agreement of 1891 and threatening to shut American pork out of Germany if the proposed duty on sugar is imposed. Senator Chandler docs not hes itate to declare that if the present pressure for high duties continues it may prevent the passage of the bill through the senate. There is 41 demand for an increase in the wool duties from 5 and (5 cents a pound to It) and 12. The western senators have combined to secure high duties on wool, hides, coal lead ore, as their section is large ly interested in those* articles. California will attempt to secure high duties on fruit as to exclude all foreign fruit. In the face of all this the senate is expected hy the democrats to make a general reduction of all duties. The re publicans intend giving the west ern senators important committee appointments in order to secure their votes on the tariff bill and to induce them to withdraw their de mands for higher rates. AN OUTSIDE OPINION. That Hay St. Louis will have the proposed improvements and for which the issue of $40,000 worth of bonds will bo issued, is now a foregone conclusion. The community, save little opposition, is unanimous in the approval of the proposition and its success is only a matter of time. These improvements can well bo consid ered the redemption of the place from any lethargic inlluonco that might exist. Already the matter is attracting widespread atten tion and gratifying it is to see the numerous and complimentary comments the issue has incurred. The following, from the Ocean Springs Progress, is a fairsample: Bay St. Louis is awakening to the fact that it must stir itself if it would keep up with the lapid growth of other coast towns. At the monthly meeting of Hie city council last week, the preliminary steps were taken to bond llio town for 840,000, the amount to be used in wiping out the town indebtedness and building an electric light plant, a water works system, and a ’public market. The bonds are to run twenty years at C per cent interest. After a careful cal culation it has been ascertained that there will be no increase of taxation as a result, the income to lie derived from the electric lights, water works and market, being much more than the operating expenses and interest will amount to. The people of Bay Ht. Louis and the council which has taken the in itiatory steps are to be congratulated for their wise and public spirited ac tions. For it is a wise move and will redound to great good to the city and ihe pcoplee living tberin. Other cities along the coast would do well to imitate the action of Bay St. Louis, among the number our i own little city of Ocean Springs. THE FLOOD DISASTER. The situation of the Mississippi river along the Mississippi and Louisiana banks is anything but encouraging, and it would seem that what levees and banks re main in tact are taxed to their utmost power in staying the mad rush of the swelling waters. The river is now higher than at any known time, and its volume continues to expand. The breaks that have already occurred have caused severe trials over that HAY ST. LOUIS. MISS-.’SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1897 magnificent country in this state known as the delta or the valley lands. It is here whore the losses .will amount to hundreds of thousands, to say nothing of the live stock drowned. Lives have I teen lost, find places com pletely submerged. this rise of the Mississippi has devasted an invested capital of $7(5,000,000 in Missouri, Tennes see, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mis sissippi combined. The state arid national assistance is prompt and liberal. The ice war carried on in this city last summer between local and outside producers should not hy any means '-c encouraged so as to Witness a i petition this year. Our people should let that spirit of “patronize homeintlustry’’prc domiuato ns a safeguard to their own interests.’The local ice plant, gives employment to homo peo ple, helps swell the city revenue and its operation sustains the in dustrial and progressive reputa tion of the community. That alone is worth something. The argu ment that competition keeps down prices is fully in keeping with the utterances of a f>ol, as no* sensi ble or business-knowing person expects a producer to compensate the labor employed, meet expen ses and besides give away his pro ducts. Scranton, like Hay St. Louis, is beginning to realize the necessity of public improvements. The Democrat-Star says: “It begins to look as if Scranton under its new municipal government is going to have a system of water works for both lire and domestic purposes. Also electric lights. Of course there will bosomo kick er against this much needed im provement.” Tho Gulf Coast Progress favors the proposed bond issue as the appended will show. That the scheme is a practical one is apparent to the most obtuse mind after a little time is spent in calculating the income to be derived from the several sources. The bonds can bo issued and paid without the levy of' one additional cent to the present rate of taxa tion,which alone should commend the scheme to those who might through ignorance fear that the burden they now carry would bo increased. On the second Tuesday of May a vote will lie taken by the citizens of Brookhavon on a proposition to establish water works and elec tric lights to cost about 830,000 for which bonds will bo issued. The Jackson Clarion-Ledger thus comments: “Thelvote should car ry by all means—the town or city, without these improvements is way behind the time.” Wo send money to enlighten the Chinese heathen, while right in Bay St. Louis comes Mr.Wnsh eo Chinee.with that business in stinct to seethe possibility of a laundry’s success, makes money, carries it away and here wo sit idle. The chances for a steam laundry here are height. Mon. W. L. Wilson estimates that the increased cost of clothing to the people of the single state of Ohio, if the wool schedule of the republican tariff bill is allowed to stand, will be 810,000,000 a year and the increase will, of course, bo the same in all the states. Marshall Field, the great Chica go merchant, thinks the new tariff hill will boa good thing for the ' big lawyers, and declares that “there is scarcely a lino in the bill j that will net have to ho interpret* ed by the supremo court."
