THITSAINT PAUL GLOBE: MR. MORGAN A Sensational Attack in the Senate on the Reed Rules. PEOPLE'S RIGHTS Are Ignored by the Despot of the House, Alabama Senator Called to Order for Criticising a Co-ordinate Branch of the Government — Some Progress Made on the Tariff Bill — Committee Sustained on AH Votes Taken During the Day. "WASHINGTON, May 29.— Progress on the tariff bill ln the senate was check ed today, the plate glass paragraphs proving a source of controversy last ing throughout the day. As a result, little more than a page of the bill was disposed of. The finance committee succeeded without difficulty in resist ing proposed amendments from Demo cratic members of the committee, al- though each amendment was debated at great length. An exciting incident occurre*" 1 during the afternoon when Senator Morgan (Ala.) was called to order by Mr. Gai linger, who was temporarily ln the chair, for severely criticising the inac tion of the house of representatives. Mr. Morgan declared that the speaker of the house was enforcing an auto- SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 30, 1897. AUTOMATIC TRAP. Speaker Opens and Closes It at His Will. matlc trap door rule by which repre sentatives were assembled and dis persed, and he characterized this action as an outrage against popular rights. Mr. Frye (Me.) first gave warning that a protest would be made against criti cisms of the other house, and, when Mr. Morgan vehemently repeated his criti cisms, Mr. Hale( Me.) made a point of order against him. The temporary pre- VETERAN, VISION, VENERATION— FROM 1861 TO 1897. siding officer directed Mr. Morgan to resume his seat and then ruled that he was out of order. The Alabama sen ator, somewhat chagrined, was about to appeal from the decision of the chair when Mr. Hale withdrew his point" of order, and further friction was avoid ed.^ Mr. Morgan resumed his criticisms during the tariff debate and made the point that congress was not now ln ses- slon ln accordance with the constitu tion, the house of representatives hav ing vacated Its functions. After a sharp contest with the tariff leaders, Mr. Quay succeeded ln carrying- a motion to adjourn over the Decoration day celebration on Monday. Mr. Mills (Tex.) when, the senate met this morning secured a Joint resolution authorizing the secretary of war to use rations for the relief of destitute persons in the district overflowed by the Rio Grande river near El Paso, Tex., and appropriating $10,000 for this purpose. Mr. Mills read a telegram from the mayor and city officers of El Paso, saying that 600 houses had been destroyed, that 3,000 people were des titute and that the condition was be yond the power of local relief. The joint resolution was passed. The tariff bill was then taken up on motion of Mr. Aldrich, who called up the para graphs relating to china, crockery, por celain, etc., which had been passed over. Mr. Aldrloh In behalf of the committee withdrew the senate amendments to paragraphs 90 and 91, and stated that the house bill would be allowed to stand, Mr. Jones, of Ar kansas, objected to partial considera tion of the china schedule, and it was finally agreed to let the entire schedule go over. The hill was then considered from the point reached yesterday, viz. par agraph 100. An agreement was reached striking out the prarvislon that all fluted, rolled, ribbed or rough plate glass, when ground or otherwise ob scured, shall be subject to the same rate of duty as finished, oast, polished plate glass unsilvered. On the para graph as to unsilvered cast polished plate glass, small size, Mr. Jones, of Arkansas, moved to reduce the rate from 8 cents to 5 cents per square foot. In this connection, Mr. Jones declared that the increase of duty on all classes of plate glass was astounding. In one case, he said, the rate was increased 83 per cent above the high rate of the McKinley act, which "She asserted had been repudiated by the people because of Its high rates; This was an attempt to raise the price of mirrors used ln cheap furniture for* poor people, while the large size glass by people of wealth, had Its rates reduced. This was the peculiarity of the whole bill, as though the senators in charge of the bill had ln mind the old proverb: "To him who hath shall be given, and to him who hath little shall be taken away." j_Bien Mr. Jonea referred to the enormous dividends declared by the plate glass trust, Mr. Piatt ,of Con necticut, stated that so dividends hod been declared in the last three years. Mr. Vest, of Missouri; added that the entire plate glass trade, with a few trifling exceptions, was controlled by the combine, which met annually at Pittsburg, fixing rates. Mr. Jones pre sented a statement showing that the plate glass combination had made prof its of about $2,500,000 ln twenty-two months, on a capital of $2,000,000. Mr. Quay, of Pennsylvania, read a letter from the Pittsburg plate glass compa ny, declaring that any statement that It was a trust or combine in restraint of trade, was untrue. The debate on plate glass and the existence of a trust becaime protracted. Mr. Jones read a letter complaining of the methods of the Pittsburg compa ny, and declared emphatically that the action of that company was un- American and outrageous. Mr. Aldrloh defended the rates of the bill. It was not true, he said, that the rates on plate glass were to be increased, as asserted by Mr. Jones, or that plate glass waa an article of necessity to the common people. Plate glass was not an article of general use by the common people. The changes proposed were simply a rearrangement of the rates In the McKinley and the Wilson acts. The senator from Arkansas (Jones) had taken one of the Items and had rung the changes on that one item as though It applied to all of them Commenting on Mr. Jones' statement that the Pittsburg Plate Glass com pany was the largest of Its kind in the world, Mr. Aldrich declared that this was an evidence of American energy and enterprise, and was no cause for raising or lowering duties. Mr. Lindsay (Ky.) asked If the exist ence of a trust to control the trade was not a good reason for withhold ing protection. "I deny most emphatically," Mr. Al drich replied, "that there Is any com bination to control prices or to limit production or to do anything else that Is generally understood as a restraint of trade." Mr. Vest pointed out what he con- eidered a peculiar feature of the re adjustment, that the rates were In creased on the grades ln common use and decreased on grades used by the favored class. The proposed rates were so high as to be absolutely prohibitory and the advocate's of the bill seemed to be inspired by the hope of Carey, the apostle of extreme protection, that an ocean of flre would keep from our Continued on Ninth Pave. GRAVES OF HEROES Are Decked With Qarlands in Reverent Remembrance. VALOR OR CAUSE ? One or the Other Is Gratefully Cherished. Eloquent Oration Is Delivered at the Auditorium b> Rev. Robert Forbes, of Duluth, with Other Pat-4 riotic Addresses— Militia and Civil Societies Pa** rade, Augmented by Thousands of School ChilJ dren. True to tradition, Memorial day brought rain, but it was a blessed rain, a token mayhap of tears shed by heaven over the grassy mounds where rest the veteran dead. It washed from the trees and flowers the dust that had accumulated, and the freshened gar lands were the better for It, even though the lawns of the fair ones who bedecked the graves were less present able by reason of the wetting. But at 10 o'clock it cleared off, and nature donned her brightest attire, flt- Ing the day devoted to the acknowl edgment of the benefits of beneficent peace that were won by hard-visaged war. A fredh breeze floated every en- Blgn from its staff, its colors resplend ent in the afternoon sun, ana few there were who did not accept the welcome of PIS 1 10 12. PRICE FIVE CENTS.

Th* parade, unostentatious, yet thoroughly} representative of civil and military lift alike, was witnessed by a crush that lined every street along the line of march to the Auditorium. The exercises themselves were art* tended by a multltude.in which the gen*; eration between the veterans and the little ones who sang ln the chorus wjis represented by unusually large numl bers.

Wltnens Tliia Featore of th« Day's Celebration. / The casual visitor In the vicinity oi Rice park yesterday afternoon wodM have been at a loss to have told wheth^ ' er there had been issued a call fort troops to go to the front, or simply fop' a monster May party. Scarcely had;' the residents in the neighborhood riseni from their luncheon when the streets* began to take on a gala appearance* There was the martial music of gaily uniformed bands, mixed with the unre-^ strained shouts of a thousand joyous school children. Later along came the dignified young men who make up the state's military oragnizations, measur, ing tread with the loyal veterans who long years ago bade farewell to their homes and dear ones to maintain th* honor and dignity of the nation. ._« occasion for all this was the Memorial day parade, in which the numberles_j young, school people were to join inj line with the gallant survivors of th^ Civil war, whose deeds of valor and! heroism mads their presence here pos* sible. The small army of those who are to represent the cream and flower of the generation to come were to do hon. or, hand in hand with the survivors, to the army which had gone across ths line. In strong contrast to the senti ment with which the old soldi*is set about the task of commemorating the noble deeds of the dead whose depart ure had thinned their ranks, was tha free, untrammeled joy of the younger army whose recruits scarce took in the full meaning of the occasion. It was) really the flr&t time when in an event of this character there was a repre sentative showing of the youth of the city in connection with a military an. civic parade. It was not far from the appointed time, 1:45, when Gen. J. W. Bishop mounted upon a sleek brown charger] made his appearance, closely followed by Col. W. W. Price, of the National guard, and other officials of the day. The Metropolitan hotel was quite tha heart of the city. On all sides therg were gathered companies of the guard, Grand Army posts, and other organiza! tions which usually form a part of city demonstrations. The streets where the different di visions rested were Third, Fourth, Washington, St. Peter and Market, Even Fifth street was held for soma time by some of the veterans. The first division, with Lieut. Budy and a dozen sturdy mounted police of ficers as escort, moved slowly off to the music of Stein's Second Regiment band. Chief Marshal Bishop had six mounted aides, Capt. W. H. Harris, E. H. Wood, C. G. Edwards, J. L. Bingham and M. S. Mead. Then came Stein's Second Regiment band followed by the First battalion of the national guard in command of Col. W. W. Price, consisting of Companies C, D, E and H and Battery A, of the artillery. These were commanded by Capt. Ed Bean, N. C. Robinson, Treat Spear, E. C. Monfort and Lieut. Rooch, while Capt. George Lambert acted as Col, Price's aide. Two pretty little girls in white cos-, tumes and carrying each a mass of; flowers marched proudly by the side of Capt. Bean, of the crack Company D, and were enthusiastically cheered along the line of march. The national guardsmen put up a splendid appear, ance and added much to the general excellence of the parade. Battery A, with its dark-red trap pings, its heavy artillery horses drag ging along the thive-inch guns, the Gatling and death-deaiing machine gun, attracted much attention and fill ed the youth along the line with much awe. As tiie nrst division proceeded from the hotel towards Fifth street, the sec ond division, in charge of Marshal J. J. McCardy, aided by Gen. J. B. Sanborn, William Cunningham and Thomas Montgomery, fell in line with the St. Paul Marine band playing lively music. The Sons of Veterans headed the divi sion, in command of Capt. Paul Hen ninger, after which the veterans them selves, Garfield Post No. 8, being: in the van in command of C. W. Fisher. Next came Acker Post No. 21, N. K. Wllltams.commander.followed by Com mander J. B. St. Clair, with his gal lant comrades of Gettysburg Post No. 148. The post of the day, Gen. Ord Post No. 21, brought up the rear of the di vision, led by Commander Louis N, Bryant. The veterans were out to a man, and and It was ""a sight to make a man stop and think. There were the brave men, whose empty sleeves and halting gait showed all too well the perils anq dangers they had experienced, march* ing seriously through long rows of merry school children, who laughed and cheered and sang even as they tossed great bunches of the flowers of the season In the path of the veterans. Many a spectator felt the tears welling up, and the necessity for putting down that gulping sensation in the throat aa he thought what it all meant. The fa miliar notes of the fife and drun^
