LIAN Y SHORT SPEECHES MADE
Interesting Running Debate on the
Alleged Compromise Agreement.
.JOHN SHERMAN TAKES A HAND
Chandler Admits That Holt Senator So Hot
Know as Keen About Tariff Progress as
the Newspaper Han Stewart Comes Oat
At tho early hour of half-past eleven yester
day tho routine business was disposed of and
the tariff bill taken up. Tho attendance In
tho galleries was light, and little interest was
exhibited in the debates except on tho floor.
The act that many amendments were to be
proposed to the tariff bill, malting a com
promise bill, was again the prominent feature
ot the early hours of the session and was
brought out by Mr. Hale.of Maine.
He began by speaking briefly ot the pend
ing amendment, the change of date for the
taking effect of the bill, and said that the
Benntor from Tennessee, who had oharge of
this bill affecting the industries of the whole
country, proposed cow to decide that on tho
?0th of June, only sixty-flvo days ahead, it
should take offoctond that every reduction of
riLty,cory change affecting lndustrles.should
then becomo law.
".Vow," he went on, "I appeal to the Senator
Irom Tenuossee to let this part of the bill the
dato when it shall take effect remain unacted
on until we hare more daylight, until we can
wo through and know what is likely to be done.
Why, .Mr. rreldrnt, I do not lelleve that the
Senator from Tennessee has the slightest con
ception of what this bill Is likely to be when It

scheme afloat to secure the votes of a majority

Mr. Ilalc had road the interview with Mr.
Briee, to which he bad referred, and in which
Mr. Uricc was reported to hate said that a
compromise measure had Deen agreed upon.
No man who was engaged in making up this
new proposition had seen St to deny it. and, as
l!ieNur-tor from Rhode Island had said yester
day, no mattor how many denials were made,
:iirty days, perhaps less time than that, would
d'sciose to tho country the secret proceedings
allien were going on.

lie cojld say, in spite ot whatever denial
Lad been made, that the wholo bill was to
be recon-tructed, and that Senators who had
not been in friendly mood toward It and who
bad early and late made known their antip
athy to it wero to be propitiated in order to
gain their votes. This meant that Senators,
like tho Senator from Tennessee, who were
honest in their convictions, were to bo made
to voto against their Arm beliefs In order to
get votes to pass some kind of a tariff bill.
He would liko to see Jackson or Jefferson or
even Jefferson Davis attempting to make up
a tariff bill in holes and corners of the Capi
tol. Ho referred to another newspaper article,
which had just come to his notice, which
stated that owing to recent development
"Mills was kicking like a steer."
"Well," said he, "I don't wonder that the Sen
ator from Texas, who has given so much time
and thought to the subject, and who in tho other
house drew up a tariff bill, don't wonder that he
is kicking like a steer. 1 don't wonder that ho
Is kicking when three or four men who have
never been in sympathy with his views (for he
was a straightforward and honest man) were al
lowed to frame a bill which was not in sympathy
with his views. I doubt whether the kicking
will avail him anything. When they roport this
bill, when the party lash is applied, then we
will behold tho spectacle of men who have held
one view all their lives voting for a bill which
will murder and slaughter all their beliefs."
Mr. Harris, replying to the remarks of Mr.
Hale, which were mainly directed at him,
"The Senator from Maine has complimented
me In a manner which shows no disposition on
hid part to spare my modest blushes, but I think
It may be necessary that I should Tery briefly
define my position In regard to the pending bill,
and I promise to be as brief as I usually am.
"To begin with, I undertake to assert with
absolute confidence that there never was in the
history of this trovernment a tariff bill framed
by either party, there never will bo a tariff hill
framed by either party, which has not been and
will not be the result ot compromising between
conflicting parties. My opinions are, perhaps, a
little more extreme than those of nine-tenths of
Senators on this side of the chamber, but I have
never yet been sufficiently arrogant or suffi
ciently confident of my own superior wisdom on
this or any other question as to hold myself
aloof from the opinions of other gentlemen
equally well informed, equally honest, and
equally Interested In this government, and I
Bhould despise myself If I did not bear with my
brother Senators on this side or the other on
questions on which we differ. The man who is
arrogant enough to say that he will turn from
nil sutrecstions from friend or foe which chance
to I'onfiict with his own opinions, would have no
confidence in and I should condemn and despise.
"I do not choose at this time to go Into the
details of this bilL I have been ready from the
I eglnuing, and I am now ready, to compromise
conflicting opinions with my brother Democrats.
I wjuld oven be willing to compromise with my
friend from Maine If ho showed any disposition
to come to gome terms for the abrogation of a
tariff law which Is odious. As to his reference
that sugar stock has gone up on account of this
UHi, at tno uttermost the only protection given
to this trust Is one-eighth of 1 cent, while the
McKinlcy bill gave a protection of one-half of a
Mr. Hale said that the Senator from Ten
nessee haj misunderstood him. He had not
paid that supar stock had risen on account
of tba Senate bill, but that it had gone up
Inee the project for a new bill had been agi
tated. "I do not know what amendments will be
offered to this bill from this side or the other,"
Mr. Harris continued, "but I am frank to tell the
Senator that If thero are malcontents here, for
my s'ngle self, as a member of the finance com
mittee and a member of the Senate, I shall not
hesitate to entertain any proposition, and If it
mode a reduction from the McKInley law, how
ever objectionable it might be to my own views,
I would seize on II The crucial question is, shall
wo continue the infamy of the McKInley law or
adopt a new bill which is not entirely agreeable
to mo or to other Senators.
Mr. Hale, premising his question with the
statement that the sugar schedule of the
Henato bill had had the close scrutiny of the
Senate and presumably had the support of
Mr. Harris, asked him what his position
would bo when asked to vote for an amend
ment which was not offered In the interest of
tho consumer but in the interest of tho
'I say to tho Senator t rem Maine," ropllod Mr.
Harris, "that I am as little In favor of aiding the
refiners of tho sugar trust as ho or any other
man In this chamber or out of it, but If to make
some concessions was nocessary to pass a bill
which will reduce taxation and repeal the odious
'McKInley bill I will glory In Toting for it. They
are co mucn less ODjectionanie than the policy
of the Senator from Maine and of the McKInley
LIU that I cannot hesitate if 1 have to choose be
tween continuing the McKInley law In force or
adopting a measure which is better, but not so
much better as I would like. I hope tho Senator
from Maine understands iny position," ho said
Mr. Halo replied that he did, and thanked
tbo Senator from Tennessee for so forcibly
and unequivocally stating that he would vote
for anjtblng and everything to protect the
trusts at the cxpeaso of tho people, in order
to get voles enough to pass tho bill, no mat
ter what these amendments might involve.
Mr. Sherman then argued against the pend
ing amendment to change the date when the
bill shall take effect. Ho urged that plenty
ot time should be taken to consider the bill
carefully, for it had never been considered by
tli r nance Committee. It was a bill de novo
In m err part ot it. It was, therefore, neces
sity to consider It In detail before deciding
when it should take effect, If it ever did take
Mr. Y?st replied to the criticism of the
uiou o! tho Finance Committee, claiming
ll-.it It had been considered. He also took
occasion to severely arraign the growing cus
tom of taking notice of newspaper charges.
"I want to say right here," be said, "that this
practice which has grown up In the Senate of
bringin; In these vagabond newspapers and
t.-tklng up the time ot the Senate should be put
nu end to. It Is a disgrace that a man without
name and for all we know without character
ratuld be allowed to represent the views of a
Senator, and have another Senator read them.
2vtv m in's character or public position U safe
fiom them. It Is an outrage.
Mr. Sherman expressed tho hope that Mr.
Test would go further and make the thing
Impossible by an express mle. Ho then re
sumed his argument against the pending bill.
The bill that came from the Honso was an
honest logical measure based on Democratio
principles and platform. It provided for free
raw material, free Iron, coal, and wool, but
by gradual stops the Committee on Finance
had changed thoso Important principles of
tho Democratio party. They had abandoned
the doctrine of free raw material, yielding on
all those questions except the most Important
one. wool, and had abandoned the Tory prin
ciple on which it was based.
Senator Stewart then took the floor and
proceeded to deliver a prepared speech.whioh
soon developed Into a silver speech. Protec
tion and the gold standard, he said, could not
stand together. The South and West should
unite to tear down protection in retaliation
upon the northeast for striking down silver.
At the conclusion of Mr. Stewart's remarks
Mr. Dolpb. resumed his speeoh which has
been delivered In Installments for several
Mr. Palmer intervened to ask Mr. Dolph if
he knew of his own Knowledge the truth of
something he was reading. He questioned
the propriety of reading in the Senate any
thing which the reader could not himself
vouch for, and asserted that bo would not do
such a thing.
Mr. Chandler suggested that the newspa-
er men knew much more than Senators, and
Ir. Palmer admitted that what newspapers
printed was ottener truer than otherwise.
ARWY APPROPRIATION: BILL.
Little Progress .Mode in the Consideration
of an Important .Measure.
The House began the consideration of the
army appropriation bill yesterday after the
transaction of some routine business.
On account of the intensa opposition to a
provision in the bill which required educa
tional institutions whore army officers were
detailed to give military instruction to pay
such officers the chairman of tho Military Af
fairs Committee, Mr. Outhwaite, agreed to
strike it out.
Mr. Baker, of New Hampshire, opposed a
clnuso repealing tho statute to pension "gen
eral sorvieo" clerks and messengers, and car
ried his opposition to the extent of making
the point of no quorum, whereupon the
House, for lack of a quorum, was forced to

1 et in the face of this universal chorus of "O n

at Montgomery: "Wo solemnly profess in the

Representative Craln, ot Texas, has rein
troduced in a modified form his bill changing
the time for tho meeting of Congress from
December to tho first Tuesday alter the 4th of
March succeeding the congressional elections.
Instead ot having the new Congress meet
thirteen months after its election, as under
the present law, it would meet five months
after, in tho succeeding Spring. According to
Mr. Craln this would bring the new Congress
together fresh from the people with election
pledges undimmed and election ardor un
cooled. The bill makes provision for a session
of Congress on February 3 succeeding each
Presidential election for the purpose ot count
ing tho electoral vote, but for the transaction
ot no other business. This provision Mr.
Crain regards as very Important, the idea
being to provide for tho counting of the

law, but to prevent the enactment of laws by

.More About the Sugar Duty.
The Democratic Senators who have been
engaged in preparing a tariff compromise
have been considering the sugar duty, espe
cially, and have decided, besides fixing
a tariff of 40 per cent, nd valorem on all
sugars and one-eighth ot a cent additional on
refined sugar, to imposo a further duty of
one-tenth of a cent on sugar imported from
countries paj ing a bounty to sugar producers.
This last provision is supposed to be aimed
especially at Germany, where a bounty is paid
on beet sugar. It has been decided, also, to
extend the time when the sjgar sche lule shall
take effect until the 1st of January, 1695,
which will insure a bounty under tbo McKIn
ley law for this season's crop. It is under
stood that these two provisions have been in
serted in response to the earnest solicitations
of the Louisiana Senators.

Early Days of the Period When the Union
A Httlo more than thirty -three years ago tho
pro-slavery leaders put Into execution their
plans for the secession ot their states. South
Carolina moved first, and with tho six Gull
states, formed tho Confederate States ot
America. Mr. Lincoln, leaving Springfield on
the 1st ot February, 1861, passed through tho
principal northern cities, making brief
addresses at the various points, and. reached
Washington on the 24th. His Inaugural
address on the 4th of March declared the
Union perpetual, argued the futility of seces
sion, expressed his determination that the
laws should be falthfullyexecuted. deprecated
the Impending evils, and made a touching
appeal to all friends ot the Union.
Of the seven members of President Lincoln's
Cabinet four had been Democrats, three
Whigs. Two were from border slave sra-es.
The chief places wero given to W. II. Seward,
of New York (Socretary of State), and Salmon
P. Chaso, of Ohio (Secretary of the Treasury).
Edwin M. Stanton was made Secretary ot
War In 1862.
On April 12, 1861, the Confederate Gen.
Beauregard attacked Fort Sumter In Charles
ton harbor. Tho civil war being thus com
menced. President Lincoln called a special
session of Congress, summoned 75,000 militia
for three months, and ordered the enlistment
of 65,000 regulars for three vears. Ho pro
claimed a blockade of the southern ports
and endeavored to make it effective.
The Southern Confederacy had control ot
eleven states, and put into tbo fluid 100,000
men. The struggle which sanguine states
men predicted would bo ended In a few
months was prolonged over four years, with
dreadful sacrifices of men and means. Further
accounts ot tho military and naval eentsof
the civil war belong to hltory.

House Tariff Leaders .Not Consulted in the
The Democratic tariff leaders of the House
have not been consulted upon the tariff com
promise made among Democratic Senators.
Leading members of the Ways and Means
Committee do not even know the terms of tbo
compromise. Representatives Breckinridge,
ot Arkansas. Montgomery, Bynum, Bryan.
andTurner, of the committee.made statements
to this effect and most ot the otLer Demo
cratic members of the committee are out of
town. Representative Montgomery conversed
yesterday with the tariff reform Senators, but
could not learn that any formal compromise
has been reached. A leading member of the
Ways and Means Committee said that the lack
ot information among the House leaders
showed that the Senators wero shaping their
bill to the needs of the Senate without refer
ence to the standing it might have in the
nouse. From this it is concluded that the
Senators will pass their bill In their own way,
and then depend on a conferenco committee
to protect the changes they have made from
further alteration by the House.

THE GLEESON-BEURY WEDDING.
A Swell Event in Washington Society
Solemnized Last Wednesday.
On last Wednesday the residence ot Dr.
and Mrs. J. E. P. Gleeson was a scene of
light and beauty, the occasion being the mar
riage of their daughter, Isabel Mercedes, to
Mr. Thomas Christian Beury, of West Vir
ginia. Stately palms, the graceful asparagus
vine, and glowing La France roses, the bride's
favorite flower, were used with exquisite ef
fect in the decorations and the sweet strains
ot a string band filled the air.
Bishop Eeane, director of the Catholic Uni
versity, assisted by Fathers Foley, Maynedler,
and Byrnes, performed the coremony, which
was rendered deeply Impressive by his earnest
manner and the pathos of his exquisite voice
as hu spoke the solemn words so full ot Im
port to the jouthtulpalr. The young bride
looked radiantly beautiful in her trailing robe
of soft white satin and fairy-like veil that en
folded without concealing her rare loveliness,
and tho handsome, huppy bridegroom was a
fitting mate for her fair self. Mrs. Gleeson
was handsomely gowned In black satin, with
garniture of white lace, and received the
guests with easy grace, being deasantlT as
sisted by Miss Blount, her sister, who wore
A number of tho bride's sweet girl friends
added a charm to the entertainment by their
presence. Most noticeable among them was
Miss Itena Smith, a dainty little beauty in
filmy white gauze.
Among the distinguished people present
were Mr. and Mrs. T. C. Beury, parents of
the bridegroom; his uncle, Mr. W. S. Beury,
who acted as best man; his sisters, the Misses
Beury, and many other relatives and friends
from West Virginia and Pennsylvania; Repre
sentative Branch, ot North Carolina, a cousin
ot the bride; Senator Roach, ot North Dakota;
Judge Martin F. Morris and sister, and many
representative Washington people whom one
does not meet everywhere now. There wa3 a
tempting supper and a dazzling array of
presents cut glass, silver, bric-a-brac, laces,
and jewels. The bridegroom's gift was
pearls and diamonds, while his family sent a
case of silver containing 150 pieces and two
complete services of silver, beside many other
coatly and elegunt things.
ENTERS A DEMURRER.
Ainsnorth Withdraws Plea of ot Guilty
and Probes His Indictment.
Cob Fred. C. Ainsworth, through his at
torney, J. N. Morrison, yesterday withdrew
tho plea of not guilty made a few days ago,
and filed a demurrer, reserving tbo right to
add additional grounds. The demurrer con
tains twelve grounds.
It states that the Indictment upon its iare
failed to show that the defendant had the power
to do any of the things which it charges he
omitted to do, or that the defendant had the
power to prevent the doing of any of the things
which It charged he Buffered and permitted 10
That the indictment did not show that It was
the legal duty to perform the duties which It
charged he omitted to perform, or to prevent the
doing of suh duties.
That there was no legal notice of specified
negligence in the indictment, yet it alleged that
the performance of certain acts devolved upon
the defendant without charging that he omitted
to perform tho&e acts.
1 hat the Indictment showed that a construc
tion of a certain contract is necessary to de
termine the relation of the defendant to the
work In question, or to determine whether any
legal duty devolved upon the defendant concern
ing tho work, and the Indictment failed to set
forth the whole of the contract.
That the indictment further showed that it
was necessary to set forth all the provisions of
the contract, and yet failed to do go.
That the Indictment alleged that certain of
ficial duties devolved upon the defendant, and
charged that he omitted to perform them, hut
did not specify what office the defendant held
or what office those duties pertained to.
Finally, that the Indictment upon Its fare failed
to show that any act or om Won of the defend
ant was the direct and immediate cause of the
death of Frederick B. Loftus.
Lawyer Morrison said that Major Butter
worth had left the cltv for a short time, but that
upon his return would probably argue points
in tho indictment not already covered.

opera company, who assumes the role of

man had been very attentive to her, and,
driven to extremes by the fair American's
coldness, had even offered her his hand in mar
