TIfI^AINT PAUL GLOBlik NEW SUGAR SCANDAL Stirred Up in the Senate by Mr. Tillman, of South Carolina. NO MINCING IN HIS LANGUAGE. Tariff Bill Taken Up Later and Rapid Progress Made on It. WASHINGTON, May 28.— After a' long period of silence, Senator Tillman (S.C.) startled the senate today by a speech no less dramatic in its delivery than sensational in its allegations. He preceded it by presenting a resolution for the appointment of a special com mittee of five senators to investigate charges of speculation by senators, while the" tariff bill was before the finance committee. In advocating the resolution, Mr. Tillman threw aside the usual conventionalities of the senate, and with a plainness of speech seldom heard about the halls of congress, call ed on his associates to investigate the published charges of senatorial specu lation, and if found true, purge the senate of those who debauched it. Mr. Aldrich, ln charge of the tariff bill, answered Mr. Tillman ln a sweeping denial. The Tillman resolution was referred to the committee on contingent expenses of the senate. Considerable progress was made on the tariff bill, thirteen pages being covered. Several votes were taken dur ing the day, but the finance committee had a liberal majority in every instance. The Democratic members of the finance committee made a strong effort to re duce the rates on window glass, but their amendments to this effect were defeated. The bill will be . considered tomorrow, the usual Saturday recess being abandoned. Mr. Tillman's resolution quotes the senate resolution of May 17, 1894, au thorizing the original inquiry, and then, after reciting the proceedings in the Chapman and Havemeyer trials, pro ceeds: Whereas, within the last thirty days sundry newspaper eorerspondents have openly charged senators with speculating in Sugar stock while the sugar schedule was under discussion, and also charged that brokers in New York knew in advance as to what the senate finance committee would report as to the sugar schedule; all of which involves a question of the highest privilege, to wit: the right of the senate to protect its members from slan der and to protect the body as a whole from these open charges of corruption. Therefore, be H „ "' "* ' Resolved. That a committee of five be ap pointed with power to send for persons and papers, to employ a stenographer and to ad minister oaths, to inquire into the truth or falsehood of the charges made in May, 1894, and into the charges recently made, and the scope of the investigation shall cover every thing embraced in the resolution of May 17, 1894, as well as the methods pursued by the American Sugar Refining company, better known as the sugar trust, in controlling legis lation in its favor at the present time. And especially whether it has in any wise con tributed to or controlled the election of a senator in this body at any time. The presiding officer, Mr. Frye, promptly ruled that the resolution should go to the committee on contin gent expenses, but Mr. Tillman obtain ed consent to make a statement. "We have arrived at a time," he be gan, "when the senate can no longer afford to rest under the damning ac cusations made against senators. If there are men here debauching the sen ate, then we should be purged of them. If these reports are slanders, then the press galleries should be purged. We cannot afford to He back on our dignity any longer, and say we will not investi gate." It had been charged, he said, that President Cleveland met the sugar magnates on a yacht and discussed de tails of the schedule of the then pend ing tariff bill. There was nothing to fasten that damning accusation upon -the president, Mr. Tillman said, but Senator Jones, of Arkansas, had recent ly furnished evidence to the effect that the president told him the trust should have one-fourth-cent a pound. Mr. Jones quickly arose and stated that on two occasions Mr. Cleveland had said to him that he thought the one-forth-cent on raw sugar was necessary to the American refineries, and that a one enghth-cent would drive the refiners out of business. Proceeding, Mr. Tillman said it might be that Mr. Cleveland desired to carry out a bargain and if so the senate ought to find it out. Here Mr. Gray, of Delaware, chair man of the former sugar investigation committee, interrupted. The statement, he said, that a sugar schedule had been made upon Mr. Benedict's yacht, when the president was on board, with offi cers of the sugar trust, was not true and its falsity had been established after the committee had probed the statement to the bottom. Continuing, Mr. Tillman exclaimed: "Both parties are involved and one is as deep in the mud as the other is in the mire. You know of the reports against certain members of the old finance committee, and now we have more damning accusations against the present committee." Mr. Pettus (Ala.) interrupted to ask Mr. Tillman not to deal in generalities, but to put a mark on the senators by name. "That is what I want an inquiry for —to mark these men," responded Mr. Tillman. "I do not want the poor man to suffer while the millionaires are turned loose." After protests from Mr. Pettus that Mr. Tillman should name at least one senator accused, Mr. Tillman went on to state that when the former tariff bill was framed the finance committee had left their committee room and had taken quarters at the Arlington hotel. "The senator is grossly mistaken," interrupted Mr. Vest, of the finance committee. "The Democratic members of the committee did not go to the Arlington hotel or anywhere else out side their committee room at the capi tol." Mr. Tillman said he was glad the. Democratic party was relieved to this extent, but added: "Now no one denies that for the last two months rooms at the Arlington have been occupied by the finance committee, in easy touch with the telephone to New York and easy reach of agents of the sugar trust. "Why is it," he asked, "that the sugar trust can always command a specifio instead of an ad valorem duty? Why is it that they cleared $25,000,000 in three years? It was the Democratic party who" made it possible in 1894. And now," he proceeded, "with a disgraced and demoralized Democratic party out of power and the Republicans in charge SATURDAY MORNING, MAY 29, 1897. SENATE URGED TO PURGE ITSELF. >f affairs, we have another damning evidence of the sugar trust's power." Mr. Tillman said he would now pre sent specifications and had read a num ber of signed articles In the newspa pers of New York, Chicago and else where, making various charges against senators, some by name. The first article began: "Smith ahead on sugar," and spoke of the New Jersey senator selling sugar to the extent of 6,000 shares short, at a profit of $3,000. Mr. Smith was not in the chamber at the time. Another article spoke of the large profits to senators, and stated that 9,000 shares of sugar stock had been handled the day before for three senators. Mr. Tillman said it was about time these specific charges, mo_t of them signed with the names of their authors, should be probed. There should be no mixture of the old inves tigation and the new one. "Let us not mix up the Democratic sheep with the Republican goat," he said, "but let's have a fumigation." It was not a time when senators should sit here, apparently silenced by cowardice or corruption. The Republicans had re ceived the recent campaign contribu tions from "the bctopus," he said, and it should be brought to light before the American people. If this "gang of thieves and robbers" were to have all they wanted, then let the American people realize what a glorious senate represented them at Washington. In conclusion, Mr. Tillman reiterated that if the senate is "rotten to the bot tom," it should be proved. If these charges were false then the lies should be laid bare. If the charges were true, then, he said, the guilty senators should be turned out and the senate purged. Mr. Aldrich (Republican member of the finance committee, and in charge of the tariff bill) immediately took the floor as Mr. Tillman closed. It had been charged, or inferred, he said, that the sugar trust dictated the sugar schedule. "But I desire to say in the senate, to the senator (Tillman) and to every man in the United States,- that no person connected with the sugar trust at any time or at any pljoe in fluenced the framing of the sugar schedule or received information as to its character. I desire to make the statement as broad as the English lan guage can make it," Mr. Aldrich said, "that no living person outside of the members of the committee had any in formation as to the subject until thir ty-six hours before it was reported. Th-en the senator from Nevada (Jones) haci been shown the schedule. No hu man being* beyond this had received the slightest information. "And any man who says so, or inti mates so," added Mr. Aldrich, "de serves to be denounced in a way which would not be parliamentary here." Mr. Tillman interrupted to say that he had not made the charges; he had merely submitted public statements with the authors' names signed. Mr. Aldrich, proceeding, said the full est Investigation was courted; there was nothing t"> conceal. No informa tion ever went from that committee room to any teltphone to any one. He (Aldrich) had never bought or sold a share of sugar stoCk. It was easy for correspondents to make such charges, but they were absolutely false. With out further debate the resolution was referred to the committee on contin gent expenses, and, on motion of Mr. Aldrich, the senate took up the tariff bill. Mr. Vest opposed the proposed in crease on soda ash from *& to 3-10 of a cent per pound as unfair to soda mak- i ers, and that it would not have been made but for the fact that Mr. Jones, of Nevada, where the principal deposit of soda ash in the country is found, is a member of the finance committee. Mr. Stewart (Nev.) favored the amendment, and Messrs. Caffery, Wal thall, Bacon, Chilton, protested against it. The amendment was agreed to without division, but was reconsidered and allowed to go over to permit Mr. Gray to be heard on it. There was only brief discussion of the remaining paragraphs in the chem ical schedules. Mr. Jones stated that while they were not accepted without protest by the Democrats, those in charge of the Democratic interests con sidered it unnecessary to consume, to no avail, the time with the voting ma jority apparently against them. The next schedule, relating to earths, earthenware and glassware, was enter ed upon. Mr. Jones (Ark.) objected in a vigorous speech to the rate fixed on window glass. It was of universal con sumption and was in the hands of trusts, two associations controlling practically the business in this country, and dividing the territory and fixing rates. "Among all the Iniquities of the bill," said he, "and their name is legion, the glass schedule is the most monstrous." Mr. Sewell (Rep., N. J.) challenged Mr. Jones' statements, say ing there were individual glass makers in his state, outside of any trust, and struggling for existence against foreign competition. Mr. Mills (Tex.) said the glass rates were enormous and un justifiable, running from 115 to 168 per cent. It was far beyond anything imagined when the country first began to foster infant industries. It was not a duty but a bounty to wealth, he de clared. Mr. Jones' amendment to re duce the rate on window glass from I*4 to 1-cent per pound, was disagreed to, yeas, 18; nays, 28. The vote was on party lines, the Democrats for and the Republicans against the amendment. Messrs. Mc- Enery (Dem., La.); Stewart (Pop., Nev.), and Jones (Pop., Nev.) voted with the Republicans, and Messrs. Heitfeld and Pettigrew with the Democrats. The committee rate of I"<4 cents was then agreed to. Mr. Jones (Ark.) offered another amendment reducing the rate on win dow glass above 10x15 Inches square, and under 16x20 from 1% to 1% cents per pound. The amendment was dis agreed to— lß to 27. All of the commit tee amendments as to window glass, were agreed to. On cylinder and crown glass, Mr. Jones' amendment substituting the present rate of 2% cents for the pro posed rate of 4 cents per square foot, was defeated. Yeas, 20; nays, 27. The committee amendments on cyclinder and crown glass were then agreed to. At 5 o'clock Mr. Aldrich .yielded to urgent requests from Democratic sen ators, that the bill be laid aside. Mr. Vest remarked in. this connection, that more progress had been made in three days than in three weeks during the Wilson bill. Tha senate then went into executive session and soon after adjourned. -^m- EXCITED DEBATE In the Prussian Diet on the. Law of Association* Dill. BEBLIN, May 28— In anticipation of the Becond reading of the bill amend ing the law of associatloh the lower house of the Prussian diet was crowd ed today. After a brief discussion, the motion of Count Limbergh-Stirrum, Conservative, to insert a clause allow ing the police to prohibit meetings which might be expected to endanger the security of the state or public or der, was rejected. The lower house of the diet, after a heated debate, thien rejected clause 1 of the bill, amend ing the law of association, providing for the dissolution of meetings threat ening the safety of the state and pub lic order.

CINCINNATI, 0., May 28— The crowning event of the visit of the com mercial clubs of Boston, Chicago and St. Louis to Cincinnati was the ban quet tonight at the Clifton mansion of Alexander McDonald, who was host for the Cincinnati club. "sPhe dinner was most befitting the dignity of such clubs, and the welcome to "Dolray" was as warm as the hospitable city could have desired. Owing to the necessity for a midnight departure of the Boston guests, the dinner was served early. Lucien Wulsin, president of the Cincin nati club, opened the speaking with an address of welcome. The first response was by Jerome Jones, president of the Boston club. Mr. Jones gave a sketch of the origin of the Boston club twenty nine years ago, and spoke of the value of unity of action by these organiza tions, especially in supporting the credit of the government amj in maintaining inviolate the dignity and power of the branch of the government which is the final arbiter of all questions that can arise in the administration of the af fairs of the nation. Mr. West, president of the St. Louis club, made a happy response, full of humorous touches, that kept the guests in almost a continuous burst of laugh ter. He gave credit to Boston for her sterling qualities and did the same thing for Chicago, shoeing in both cases the value of co-operation and loyalty to each other.. Beferring to St. Louis with her "disadvantage of nat ural advantages," he said the secret of success was to be found in the energy developed In overcoming obstacles. Secretary Gage, who was the guest of honor, was vociferously applauded as he rose to speak. "He said in be gining his remarks that before coming he had called on the president and asked permission to say for the admin istration that there must be proper revenue raised and there must be a sound system of currency established. The president said: "That is exactly whteut I want you to aay." In substance Mr. Gage said: The chainr \n has aeked me for & few words, and I ihall not abuse his confidence by going into an address. Ate I have observed and listened to the words Massing from lip to lip among the members ft the Commercial clubs gathered here, I diMpver two partic ular themes which have affirst place in the thoughts of all. 'These two themes are the tariff and the public finances. Upon the settlement bf these two questions, enterprise waits and industry languishes. Over fifty times I have been asked: "When will the tering the warding ot the clause was rejected. A free Conservative motion making the clause applicable only to Social Democrats and anarchists, was also re jected, the vote being 206 to 193. An nouncement of this result was greeted with prolonged cheers from the Leftists and hissing from the Bightists. In the course of the debate the Prussian min ister of the interior. Baron yon Der Becke yon der Horst, strongly sup ported the bill, with reference to the free Conservative action, he stated, be fore a vote that the government had not decided what attitude it would as sume toward that motion. To Rescind Fusion. SPOKANE. Wash., May 28.— The leaders of the Democratic party ln this state declare their intention to rescind the fusion of the last cam paign, reorganize the Democracy and conduct future campaigns upon the Chicago platform. A general meeting of the Democratic* commit tee has been called to this end to meet at Spo kane, June 14. are very much strained and the general situation is extremely serious. ATHENS, May 28.— Elaborate meas ures have been taken to preserve order. Besides the police and gendarmes, a civil guard has been selected from the most trusted inhabitants. The minister of the interior, M. The etokis, is resolved to deal severely with anti-dynastic movements. The fact that the warships at Phalerum are ready to land troops and artillery in the event of disorders occurring haa deterred the revolutionists from mak ing a demonstration. tariff discussion end, and the measures pro posed receive the final vote which will formu late the measure into law?" Over fifty times more I have been asked: "Have the financial reforms for which the people struggled in No vember last been forgotten?" Now it is not to be wondered at that you who have so long borne the burden of anx iety and fear, who have so long waited and watched for the restoration of conditions upon which some secure estimate of tomorrow can be made, should grow nervous and impatient over every act or word which seems to sug gest doubt or delay tn the establishment of such condition*. I have thought that on this occasion I could do no better service than to give you needed reassurance and hope. As to the great fabric now before congress known as the tariff bill I have nothing to say in detail. 1 want to bear testimony, however, to the zeal and good faith of those in both houses who have 'that measure in charge. They are fully conscious of their great responsibilities and are working faith fully to discharge them. Nor do I think that the opponents of these measures are likely to oppose with wilful and unjust ob structions the course of legislation. Protest, there will be more or less; fencing for posi tion must be expected, but, having now come into contact with many of the repre sentatives of the people in both houses of congress, I deem it my duty to bear witness, so far as it may have value, to the honorable and patriotic motives that inspire the minds of the great majority, whether upon one side of the house or the other, and I prophesy an early result in the national councils to which this great commercial question is now committed. I make these remarks not for to defend a body for which hold no commission to* speak, but to correct in one direction, if I may, the operation of an injurious sentiment; a senti ment which is sowing evil seeds in tetany directions. It is dividing classes, destroying unity and breeding hatred. The one word for that sentiment ls "distrust." Faith and courage lead to conquest and victory. Dis trust paralyzes and destroys. As to the financial question, I must con tent myself with a tern words. I am glad that they may be words of assurance. If any of you harbor the suspicion that the adminis tration, but Just now installed Into the re sponsibilities of high offlce, has forgotten, or is likely to forget, the mandate of the people whose voice ln behalf of honest money and sound finance rang out loud and clear ln November last, put that suspicion aside. It is unjust and unfounded. In good time and ln proper order the affirmative evidences of my declaration will appear. In the meanwhile, my friends, do your part to help those charged with legislative and administrative duties. Do not let the inertia engendered by fear and distrust creep over you. We have been passing through a period of great trial, and nobly have we endured the strain. The future is not dark with forebodings. It is illuminated with rational hope. The re vival of industry is near, and with the es.ab llshment of a revenue law sufficient to bring into the treasury an amount adequate to meet the reasonable needs of our government and with the establishment of our finances on a sound and enduring basis, nothing now lore seen can delay the recovery of past losses and the inauguration of a new forwrd move ment along the lines of material advncement and social progress, which we my humbly trust la In the benevolent mind of God to bestow upon tht Anwrioaa £*_*•'•» PKJCE TWO CENTS—] f^JSSt'. IRISHMEN EXPELLED For Interfering With Proceed* ings in the House of Commons. JODN REDMOND FIRST VICTIM. Cries of "Coercion" Raised in Vain by the Parnellite Contingent. LONDON, May 28.— John E. Bed mond, the Parnelllte leader, was sus pended in the house of commons to day, owing to his persisting in an irregular discussion of the financial re lations between Great Britain and Ire land. John J. Clancy, member for the nGrth division of Dublin county; Wil liam Bedmond, member for West Clare, and William Field, member for the St. Patrick's division, of Dublin, for similar conduct, were removed from the house by the sergeant-at-arms. The disturbance took place during the committee vote for the maintenance of the harbors, John E. Bedmond oppos ing the vote discussed the financial relations between Great Britain and Ireland. The chairman called him to order, and when Mr. Redmond persist _ed in speaking, he was ordered to re sume his seat. This he refused to do, whereupon he was named. The presi dent of the board of trade, Mr. Ritchie, moved Mr. Redmond's suspension, which was adopted by a vote of 223 to 32. When the house resumed regular business the matter was reported to the speaker, and the house confirmed the suspension by a vote of 238 to 52, several anti-Parnellites supporting the Parnellite minority. The house then again went into com mittee and Mr. Clancy persisted on the same lines as Mr. Redmond. The chair man ordered him to withdraw; he re fused to do so, and the sergeant-at arms was ordered to remove him. William Redmond adopted the same policy as Mr. Clancy, and was also re moved by the sergeant-at-arms. Mr. Field, after having been repeatedly called to order was told to withdraw, which he did, saying: "I obey." The house in committee then resumed the discussion of the votes. Mr. Clancy first opposed the harbor vote, declaring Ireland is overtaxed to maintain English establishments. Mr. Redmond followed in a similar strain, and when called upon to resume his seat he replied: "Such a request was never made to me before during the fifteen years I have sat in this house." The chairman asked Mr. Redmond if he refused to resume his seat, to which the Parnellite leader replied: "I do. I hold I am within my rights." The sus pension of Mr. Redmond was then voted. On the house resuming business, the chairman formally reported the mat ter to the speaker, who said: "The question is that John E. Redmond be suspended from service in this house." An emphatic chorus of "ayes" was followed by a loud Nationalist shout of "No." The vote was then taken as already stated, and the speaker sadd: "I must call upon Mr. Redmond, If he Is ln any part of the house, to withdraw from its precincts." The committee then resumed its dis cussion and Mr. Clancy renewed his opposition to the harbor vote, saying the financial committee had established beyond question that Ireland was over taxed. The remark was greeted with cries of "Order." The chairman said he hoped Mr. Clancy would not persist in irrelevance. Mr. Clancy responded that he thought raising the question of the over-taxation of Ireland had every note of the most relevant thing he could do, and he intended to press his right to do so. After again warning Mr. Clancy, the chairman remarked: "If the honorable member persists, I must rule his con duct as being grossly disorderly and request him to withdraw." This called forth from Mr. Clancy TWO ADDITIONAL FOLLOWED SOON. the remark: "I consider your decision* unjust and I am not disposed to sub mit to injustice." This statement was greeted wittf cheers from the Irish benches and with cries of "order" from other parte oc the house. As soon as he could fc© heard, the chairman said: "I have di rected the honorable member to with draw and I understand he refuses tQ obey." "I do," exclaimed Mr. Clancy. "Then I call upon the sergearat-at arms to enforce my order." This was greeted with cheers and some Irish. cries of "coercion." William Redmond shoutetd: "Send for the Horse guards." The sergeant-at-arms proceeded to Mr. Clancey's seat and Immediately" on his arrival there Mr. Clancey arose and withdrew with the sergeant-at arms. William Redmond asked if it was in order to direct the sergeant-at-arms to remove a member without the leave of the house. "Crtainly," replied the chairman. "Are we to understand," asked Mr. Redmond, "that you may ask the ser geant-at-arms to remove anyone of us?" "If members are grossly disorderly," answered the chairman, "it is my duty to do so, under the rules of the house," Mr. Redmond retorted: "Opinions may differ as to what is disorderly. I consider it not only disorderly, but grossly criminal to not only rob a, country, but to gag its representatives. I shall take every opportunity of ob jecting to Ireland taking part in a single one of these votes under the present circumstances. It has been abundantly proved that Ireland is over taxed — " The chairman interrupted Mr. Red mond, saying: "There are other and proper opportunities of raising the question. If the honorable member persists, I am afraid I must enforce the same order." In spite of this warning, Mr. Red mond persisted, saying: "Grossly dis orderly or not, I consider it to be my duty to protest against the system ot robbery practiced against the Irish people." The chairman again Interrupted Mr. Redmond, saying: "The honorable member is now grossly disorderly and) I must request him to withdraw from the remainder of today's sitting." "I certainly will not withdraw," re plied Mr. Redmond hotly, "until you send for the sergeant-at-arms." The latter apparently did not wait to be sent for. He promptly appeared, moved In the direction of Mr. Red mond and the latter withdrew. It was now the turn of Mr. Field to make a protest against the over- tax ation of Ireland. He rose from his seat and said: "I object to the vote. A majority of the Irish people believe they are overtaxed — " The chairman promptly met Mr. Field with the remark: "The honor able member is evidently anxious to disobey the ruling of the chair. I hop*) he will not compel me to enforce thA orders of the house against him." "I feel it my duty," replied Mr. Field, "to express the opinion of my con* stituehts — " Mr. Field got no further. The chair man stopped him quickly with the now* familiar phrase, "The conduct of theji*. honorable member is grossly disorder* ly and I must ask him to leave the house." "I obey you, sir," said Mr. Field with mock solemnity, calling forth an out burst of laughter. Mr. Field then passed down tha gangway of the house greeted with further laughter, and soon afterwards the debate on the harbor votes wa*| calmly resumed.
