»truck a snag in the preparation ot the
tariff bill, and it will canse a very consid
erable delay before it can be adjusted.
At tbe meeting this morning the glase
schedule came np, aud tbe duty had lteeu
marked for a redaction averaging about
•JU per cent. Two Democratic member*,
»apposed to be Bynum, of Iudiana, and
Wilson, of West Virginia, refused to vote
for the proposition, claiming that the pres
ent tariff on glass, especially window glass,
was merely sulficient to cover the difference
between the wages uf employés in this
country and Europe.
The discussion was an extremely warm
one, but the two members held out against
all argument#, and as they will get the
uuanimous support of the Republicans ou
the committee they are in :i positiou to
ho'.d their ground. A committee of win
dow glass manufacturers has been here
since Sunday, and they are very active in
demonstrating that manufactured glass is

The senate then, at 12:45 resumed con

President's message and Mr. Piatt resum
ed i he speech which he commenced yes

Treasury, he deuied that there was any
necessity for such sn accumulation. He
wanted the Democratic party to follow its
leader, to obey its commander, to take off
the mask and have a square fight ou the
issue presented by the President. He
quoted from the speech of Senator Kenna,
where he declared that "Both the internal
and external tax system will h» heated as
a whole." Was that (Mr. Piatt asked)
the recommendation of the President?
Were the Democrats in Congress going to
attempt to play that game, and then go to
the conutry claiming the President to be a
free tradei?

Columbus, O., February 7.—Mr. Geyer
I of Panlding and Defiance, has become i
conspicuous figure in the House, becau*
of bis attitude towards tbe canals of tb<
State. Mr. Geytr is one of the few rnei
who ha* studied this question to a pur
"What action will this Legislature take,
Mr. Geyer," *aid the Rkoistek mau,
"concerning the canals?"
"I believe the time has come when im
mediate action should be taken to dispos«
of the uselts* branches. That is to say,
thot>e portions which would not pay ex
penses if put in repair. The entirely
worthless and unused branches should
have been disposed of long a no.
A desperate effort was made last
winter in this direction, bat
the canal interest as a whole was so strong
in the Senate, that the measure was defeat
ed. My bill is so modified, and so many
restrictions thrown around the canal fund
which m;»y arise from the sales, that oppo
sition will not be so strong now. I would
not 1'asur » «ueware which would impair
the integrity of the system which connect«
the waters of Lake Erie with the Ohio.
I Lasting improvements should be made
j upon those waterways which are to be re
tained. Immense amounts of,money have
been wasted in attempting to preserve the
main lines and their collateral bronches.
The appropriations were not sufficient,
scattered here and there, :w they were,
to make substantial repairs and those
slight improvements at correspondingly
large outlay soon went into decay. Hence
the only solution of the Pablic Works
question is to sell worthless, non-paying
and unused ditches and with the proceeds
restore the mainways to their original so
lidity and usefulness.
'."This the people will demand. From
the time of the original grant of lands
by the Government for the construction of
the Ohio canals the whole department has
been loosely conducted and managed in
the interest of individuals rather than that
of the people. Ohio's waterways, in spite
of mismanagement and corrupt legislation
by both parties, served a noble use, in the
development of the State and was one of
the principal factors in pushing Ohio ahead
of older States in populatiou aud in the
rapid development ot her resources.

( President Wm. Means Arrested--! Promisent Citizen
( and Ei-Mayor of Cincinnati Implicated—
Condition of the Bank—The Ex
aminers at Work.
Cincinnati, O., February 7.—Another
sensational feature has been added to the
Metropolitan Bank suspension. It is the
arrest of Hon. Wm. Means, President of the
bank. The warrant was issued thia morn
ing bat was not served in the osnal man
ner out of regard for Mr. Means District
Attorney Burnett notified liiui after twelve
o'clock of the issuance of the writ, and ar
ranged for Mr. Means to go voluntarily with
bis bondsmen to the commissioner's office
at 2 o'clock
With thf Fidelity cases fresh in mind,
and with the proof they gave of tbe relent
less power of the Government where there
h»s beeu a plain transgression of the luw,
this arrest causes a decided sensation. Mr.
Means lia-« held a leading position among
basinet« men lor a nam her of years, has
been reputed quite wealthy, served a term
:w Mayor, when he was elected, not by a
party vote, but by a combination, whose
support was a compliment to their candi
date. To bave a man of such prominence
put iu peril of imptisoumeul causes a pro
found leelitig.
There is :» luir'y well authenticated
statement that the examination of the
hank's hooks and papers »bowed a gross
violation of the banking law, in loans to
officers and others connected with the bank
very largely in excess of the limit allowed
by the law to any one. I» is possible that
this wrong doing may have been carried to
snch an extent as to imperil the bank's
solvency. It is not thought that other ar
rests will be made, but of this no one can
speak with ceitaint?i because there has
uot been time for a thorough examinatiou
of the bank's affairs.
President Means appeared this afternoon
at the office of United States Commissioner
Dorger, with Henry Hanua, Maj. Fechhei
uier, Patrick K Koach and C. M. Holloway
as sureties, and gave boud for his appear
auce in the sum of $20,000. The charge
air linst him in the warrant is the misap
plication of upwards of $200,000 of the
funds of the hauk.

Washington, February 7.—The Comp

bank today was the conduct of

Everybody understands that these cases
are those of President Means, Cashier

These wretches do not deal in prosti
