Sinior Loosenen, who runs a feed and
grain establishment in Johnson's old
fcuilding on Pine street, appeared before
Justice Fisher this morning and swore
at a warrant f ir the arrest of 0ear" J

Loosenen claim that Ebrenberg came

Loosenen said that Ebrenberg owed him
some mon-y for previous purchases and
would not give him any more grain until
he saw the cash for it. Thereupon Ehr

him all kind of improper names, so the
latter claims. Thn he left tha store but

Washington, March 15. Here Is a syn
opsis of the Dingley tariff bill, which
will t reported to the house at once
for passage, and which the administra
tion hopes will add $70,000,000 annually
to th federal revenues:
Wine Schedule same as the McKln
Tobacco Schedule of McKlnley bill,
except duty on leaf tobacco for cigar
fillers, which is nearly doubled at 5 in
stead of 35 cents per pound.
Cotton Schedule same as Wll.on bill,
except as to fine yarns and cloths made
thereform, which have been slightly ad
Wool Schedule of McKlnley Mil en
tire, except that a few varieties of cloth
Ing wools heretofore classed with car
pet wools have been transferred to class
one, the clothing wool class.
Metals Metal schedule as to Iron and
steel makes few changes In the rates
of the Wilson bill, except to reduce
them, and in hardly any case does a
rate reach the old McKlnley rate.
Tinplate Midway between act of 1890
and the present law.
Farm Products The agricultural
schedule of the McKlnley law has been
practically readopted, except that duties
on cattle over one year old are made
$6 Instead of 110, this rate being prohibi
tory on Mexican cattle. Cattle valued
above $20 are given an ad valorem of
20 per cent. rate.
Sugar The sugar schedule fixes a
rate of 1-63100 cents on 96 degree sugar.
raising above that degree and falling
below It 3-100 of a cent for each degree
of saccharine strength. The differential
of H cent and counter paying duty
against bounty paying countries is made
exactly equal to the net bounty paid.
Silk Schedule preserves the McKln
ley rates in substance, though In many
cases an effort has been made to reduce
them to an equivalent specified by the
Flax. Jute, Hemp Schedule follows
closely the lines of the McKlnley law,
though on some varieties of Chinese and
Japanese mattings the duty has been
greatly increased, as also on rugs and
carpets of the cheap varieties now be
ing Imported from the orient.
Binding Twine on Free Lbt.
Binding Twine Binding twine is
placed on the free list, but a nominal
rate is to be kept on it against Canada
until that country removes its duty on
binding twine imported from this coun
try. The word "burlaps" disappears
from this schedule owing to gross
frauds, and . thus cloth of jute Is de
scribed as a plain woven fabric of single
Wood In the wood schedule the Mc
Klnley law rates on lumber are restored
with few changes. Among these are
hemlock and white pine, now dutiable
at $1, are lifted to the $2 rate, along with
spruce, though none of the rates on
the lumber schedule reach 20 per cent.
Paper McKlnley law rates are re
stored in substance on the paper sched
ule, though some changes of classifica
tions are made and a few changes of t
rate, owing to the introduction of a
large variety of tissue paper from China
Eathenware Goes hack to the Mc
Klnley bill rates. This industry has
suffered more than any other from un
dervaluation and the ways and means
committee has not yet despaired of
working out a scheme of specific duties.
Sundries In the sundries schedule,
the last of the bill, McKlnley law rates
hi.w leen restored substantially on coal,
gloves, leather, and corks, though cork
less than half an Inch In diameter has
be advanced to 25 cents.
Redaction in FreeUnU
Free Li3t There have been great re
ductions made in the free list by the
removal therefrom and by the restora
tion of the McKlnley law rates on lum
ber, salt, wool, and, in fact, everything
that the people of the United States can
and do produce, and many luxuries
which they can not produce. The free
list has also been cleared of a lot of
paragraphs which had some excuse
years ago, but have become obsolete
and a mere refuge for fraudulent im
portations. Among these are the para
graphs excepting works of art, philo
sophical apparatus, many description of
books, household furniture, curious an
tiques, gooods brought into the United
States by Indians crossing the lorder.
and many other obsolete provisions of
It K the first real clearing up the
free lt has had in twenty years, and
the bill Is calculated to provide an In
crease of revenues over the present law
of $70,000,000, the present annual defi
ciency being $65,000,000. The bill, as
agreed upon vy tne ways anu means
committee, is entllted "An act to pro
