SENATE AND HOUSE.

Washington, June 1.—When the tariff
bill %vas taken up in tho senate several
amendments offered to the lumber tymt
graphs, looking to a duty on rough lum
ber, were voted down by a strict party
vote. Senator Allen moved to strike out
paritgruph 178, as follows:
"Lumber of nny sort, planed or fin
ished on each side, 50 cents per thousand
feet, board measure, and if pluued on
0Uv» side and tongued and grooved $1 per
thousand, and if pinned on two sides and
tongued and grooved, $1.50 per thousand,
and in estimating board measure uuder
this schedule no reduction shall be made
on' accouut of planiug, grooving or tongue*
tag."
Senator Vest surprised the Republicans
when he announced that the amendment
would be accepted on the Democratic
side. As the ameudiuent to the lumber
schedule was being voted on without de
bate, under au agreement made on
Wednesday, the vote was immediately
taken and it was agreed to^34 to 24,
strict party vote. Messrs. Pcffer -and
Allen (Pops.) voted in favor of it. This
will liave the effect of putting all lumber
on the free list.
The sugar schedule of the tariff bill
was reached, and Senator Sheruiau of
Ohio took the lloor. Senator Sherman,
in the course of his remarks, asserted
that if President Harrison lmd been re
elected, and there had lieeu no fear of
tariff tinkering, the McKinlcy law would
have yielded sufficient revenue. The fall
of stiver aud increased demand for gold
had something to do with the present
financial depression, which had been add
ed to by fear of tariff tinkeriug. He
ulso declared that the South was coming
around from its doctrine tliat protection
was unconstitutional.
The senate, Senator Mills alone voting
"no/* passed a resolution declaring that
the United States will not interfere with
the affairs of the Hawaiian islands, and
that the United States will regard inter
fei eiice with the affairs of th»} islands liy
any foreign power as an unfrieudly act.
The state bank tax bill was further
discussed in the house, but no action was
taken.
Washington, .Tune 2.—When the tariff
bill was laid before the senate to-day the
great battle over the sugar schedule be
gan. The McKintey law placed raw su
gars on the free list, imposed l-2c duty
on refined sugar and gave bounty of 2
cents to the sugar grower. The house
biil repealed the bounty ami placed all
sugars, raw aud refined on the free list.
The tiist bill reported from the finance
committee of the senate gave specific
duty of from 1 cent to 1.285 cents per
pound, according to polnriscopie test.
The compromise amendment, which is
tho one before the senate, made the
sugar schedule go into effect Jan. 1,
the rates being 40 per cent ad valorem
on all sugars, raw and refined, one-eighth
of 1 cent additional on sugars above 10
Dutch standard, with au additional tenth
of a cent a pound on sugars from coun
tries paying cxiwrt bounties. It also
continued the sugar treaty with Hawaii.
Addresses were made by Senators Man
derson, Pcffer and others, but the senate
adjourned without taking a vote.
The house put in tfie day discussiug '.h#
state bank tax bill.
Washington, "June 4.—The senate to
ray resume,I consideration of the sugar
sil cdnle, and several speeches were made
for and against the tariff bill. The dis
cission has already proceeded for the
utmost time that Democratic senators
ttonlil admit before the debate was begun
would bo liecejiMi'v reach a verdict
to-day or to-moirow, while others assert:
that there are contingencies which may
pc sti,ene the disposition of the bcludule
rr.ti. the latter part of the week. Among
other liees of policy which have been
considered among the opponents of the
bill is that of allowing the sugar schedule
to be accepted as amended by the rom
miltee on iiuauce without taking any
vote on the schedule in committee of the
whole, the object being that the op
ponents of the bill shall not be forced to
show their hands at this time, and espe
cially that they may refrain from ex
hibiting their supposed strength among
Democrats and Populist senators. St.»n
ator Harris adheres to his determination
1o ask the senate to prolong its daily
sessions into the evening, beginning with
to-day.
The state bank tax bill was under dis
cussion by^the hor.se to-day. The ques
tion has been debated until the leaders
are anxious for a vote. But the debate
has shown the state bank men that they
are liable to be defeated by iuability to
agree on any one of the many plans dis
cussed. As the state bank principle was
incorporated in the Democratic national
platform the lenders are loth to see the
bill defeated, so that a caucus to-day or
to-morrow may be called for the pur
pose of formulating a party measure
Which will command uuited support. It
is probable that the final vote on the bill
will be taken early in the week unless
the whole questiou is allowed to go over
until a caucus committee can frame a
satisfactory bill.
Washington, Jane 5. In the senate
Mr. West spoke in favor of the tariff
till. Mr. Allison (Rep., Iowa) followed
Mr Vest with an elaborate speech on the
si gar schedule. It was, he said, by far
the most important provision of the bill.
It afforded one-third of the revenue pro
duced by the bill. Mr. Allison declared
that accordirg to nutrcrous authorities
sugar could be refined cheaper here
than in Germany and some other Eu
ropean countries. The schedule practi
cally would prohibit the importation of
refiued sugars. Jt was not a schedule
for protection, but for prohibition. Mr.
Jones (Dem.) followed with a detailed ex
Hanation of the sugar schedule. After
some sparring Mr. Harris succccdcd in
effecting an arrangement by which all
the amendments lo the sugar schedule
shculd be voted on to-morrow, lu ac
cordance with the notice he served last
Satv.rday he stated Unit unless some
agreement couiit be readied for facili
tating the disposition of the measure, he
would be compelled to ask the senate to
sit longer aud later. He asked that
unanimous consent be given to vote on
all the sugar amendments at an early
hour to-morrow. Mr. Hoar suggested
that it was too much to a»k the senate
to vote without debate on all the amend
ments offered to the sugar hchedule. He
suggested that a vote be taken on thf
amendments (o the bouuty paragraph at
1 o'clock, and that tlieu the debate on
the other ameuduients be under the teu
minute rule with the understanding that
the entire schedule be disposed of to
morrow. This was finally agreed to.
The galleries of the house were un
usually well filled and on the floor there
was a goodly array of occupied desks
during the early part of the day. As
the afternoon vote on the attindanec
tl inncd out, and when adjournment cattie
there was not a half-hundred members on
the floor. The state bank tax bill was
discussed during the day.
Washington, June 7.—The Cox amen'
ment for the total repeal of the 10 ]er
cent tax on state banks was defeated iu
the Jjouse by 102 to 170. A viva voce
vote ou the Brawjey bill was then takcu
aud the bill defeated*.

posed manner which he has born through
the long and weary trial. The court at
once discharged the prisoner,' who has
been in jail nine months, lacking seven
diiys, and by invitation ho dined with
Sheriff Glynn in the private dining room.
He will return to his wife and little ones
at Cherokee, Iowa.
The trial has cost Blue Earth county
between $5,(XX) and $0,000, and was the
Ingest ever held iu this court. Hughes
Bros, and Lorin Gray, who defended
Conway, are receiving mauy congratula
tions. John E. I uyne's trial was to
have followed Conway's, he being joint
ly charged with the same crime, but it is
lic-vcd he will be disclu rged on account
of lack of evidence. It is understood
that Attorney Genera{ Childs will recom
mend this, as the same evidence would
be used in both eases.
The murder of Harry M. Walravctt
still remains a mystery.

mated that the Hoods aud washouts of

a loss of at least each to the
Oreat Northern and Canadian Pacific
roads, and nearly as much to the North

will take tho Oreat Northern and Cana

The Xt*w CrnUef Minneapolis Make*
Great Showing
Philadelphia, Juno 8.—llie new Unit
ed States imiser Minneapolis has re
turned from her preliminary builder's trial
trip. The big cruiser acquitted herself
most creditably, proving herself the equal
in every way, if not the superior, of her
sister ship, the Columbia. While it is
true that the Minneapolis did not equal
flie record o.f knots an hour made
by the Columbia on her oHicial trip, she
did better thau did her sister ship on the
preliminary trip of tho latter, the speed
of the Minneapolis being 21 75 knots,
while that of the Columbia M*as but
lio.OS. This was accomplished in spitt
of the fact that tho new ship had to
burn anthracite coah which is regarded
as a handicap, As result of this trial
it is lively predicted that the Minnenpolia
will make at least liS knots on her oil)
cial trial trip.
