Congressman Hanna, N. D. Washington, Aug. 2.—The confer ence report on the tariff bill passed the house by a vote of 195 to 183. It carried with it the tariff hill and all Its amendments and was adopted by the marglfl of 12 votes in the face of almost the united opposition of the Minnesota delegation. Twenty Repub licans cast their votes against the measure, in belief that It did not meet the demands of the people. With their ranks practically un broken, the Minnesota insurgents went to defeat in the light to beat the re- & .• 7 W// CONGRESSMAN CHAMP CLARK. port. At no time had they counted Congressman Tawney with them, as Mr. Tawney had made it clear at the start that he felt bound to support the president in his effort to pass the bill, Dwing to the fight the president had made for a satisfactory report. The tariff bill as it came from tho conference committee was not satis factory to the majority of the delega tion. They did not believe It repre sented as genuine and general revi sion as the peopfe had been promised. It is not improbable, however, that under the influence of the president, a majority of the Minnesota members would have voted for the report had not the conference committee made so many direct discriminations against schedules, sections and administrative features of the bill in which Minne sota was vitally interested. The first vote of importance was on the motion to recommit the bill to the conference committee. Many members voted for this, be lieving that the bill could be im proved if sent back to the committee. The house organization defeated this motion by only five votes, tho vote being 180 for it and 191 against. The motion to adopt the conference re port followed, the bouse organization winning by a majority of 12. Mr. Clark, the minority leader, and many of his colleagues, denounced the bill, and chastised the Republicans for failing, as the Democrats allege, to revise tho tariff downward and thus keep their party pledge. Perhaps the most sensational speech of the day was by Mr. Mann (111.), Republican, who said lie would vote against the report provided the rates on pulp and print paper as reduced bv the house were not retained. Ke denounced that particular schedule and he declared that Canada would take such action regarding pulp wood .and print paper as to place an almost prohibitory price upon paper lu this •iiuntry. ALL CHICAGO MAY SOON WALK. Street Car Men Considering Advisa bility of Striking. Chicago, Aug. 2.—Possibilities of a general street railway strike in this city are increasing.

SHOWS NO SIGN OF INSANITY Mrs. Merrill and Hartrldge Recalled Regarding the Girl Episodes.— Evelyn Aids Prosecutor and Is Ignored by Her Husband. White Plains, N. Y., July 31.—Dis trict Attorney Jerome finished his in quisition of Harry K. Thaw in the su preme court. This ends perhaps the most surprising chapter of the long cour procedure in which the young Pittsburger has figured. Thaw faced Mr. Jerome's lightning thrusts for 10 hours, yet he held his own at all times. Notwithstanding the mental strain he was under, thaw labored far into last night with his attorney in Justice Mills' ante-room, going over the multi tude of records used by Mr. Jerome in his rapid fire of cross questions. On tho whole, Thaw and his attor ney are well satisfied with the day's work. Thaw showed even more confi dence than he exhibited during his first encounter. Thaw Explains "Rubbish." Wednesday Mr. Jerome devoted himself to the prisoner's life history. Thursday ho based his question chief ly upon various documents, letters and memoranda, which he produced in sur rising numbers. The one he found most useful was a tablet containing 26 sheets of foolscap paper on which mm mm DISTRICT ATTORNEY JEROMEL of New York. were pasted a strange variety of news paper clipping and soraps of manu script. Thaw identified it as something he had prepared nad sent to Delphin M. Deltnas, his chief counsel during the first trial, for use in preparing his closing speech to the jury. Some of Its contents were strange enough to cause suspicions of tho author's sani ty, but these bits Thaw invariably ex plained by saying they were letters written to him and his family by per sons whose kind intentions probably were better than their mental balance. While Thaw was of course the cen tral figure at the hearing, there were two other witnesses, Susan Merrill, the former New York lodging house keeper, and Clifford W. Hartridge, Thaw's former attorney. Mrs. Merrill went further into details regarding Thaw's alleged abuse of young women at her house. She admitted having had dealings also with Stanford White. Hartrldge testified to the truth of parts of her story. He said that the money he turned over to the woman, which she said was used to prevent the girlB Thaw whipped from making trouble, did not come from Thaw him self. He said that he had received $103,000 from Mrs. William Thaw, but had used a large part of it for "vari ous purposes connected with his em ploymei by the family." Evelyn Thaw was an auditor in court again, but her husband ignored her presence. She naturally looked at him, but he resolutely refused to look at her. Indications are that the hearing will lust at least a week long er. OIL MAGNATE TO MARRr. Bride-to-Be Is Mrs. Burrows of Paris and New York.
