TO I^AISE TWO HUNDRED I^ILUOpS Allison Explains What Is Expected by the Re publicans. WASHINGTON, July s.— Senator Al lison, in charge of the tariff bill, an nounced shortly before the adjourn ment of the senate tonight that, as no agreement had been reached for a rnal vote on the tariff bill, lie would auk the senate to remain in session tomorrow night at last until the bill was report ed from the committee of the whole to the senate. This promises a test of endurance, unless the opposition to the bill gives way. Mr. Allison's state ment was made after another futile effort to have a time fixed for the vote. In some respects the senate made good progress today, dispersing of two amendments — that placing a stimp tax on stock and bond transactions being agreed to with little or no opposition and without the formality of a vote, white the Spooner amendment, propos ing a tariff investigation, waa with drawn after a protracted struggle. The stamp amendment, as agreed to, fixes the following rates on bonds, etc.: "Bonds, debentures or certificates of in debtedness issued after Sept. 15, 1897, by any association, company or corporation, on each hundred dollars of face value, or frac tion thereof, five cents; and on each original Issue, whether an organization or reorganiza tion of certificates of stock by any such as sociation, company or corporation, on each hundred dollars of face value or fraction thereof, five cents; and on all transfers of shares or certificates, of stock in any asso , elation, company or corporation, on each hun dred dollars of face value or fraction there of, two cents. Exemptions from the stamp taxes are made in the case of state, county and municipal bonds, and the stocks and Donds of co-operative building associations." Late in the day several new amend ments from Individual senators were voted on. One by Mr. Mantle (Mont.), reducing the internal revenue tax on distilled spirits to 70 cents per gal lon, was defeated, 23-41. An amend ment by Mr. Mills (Tex.), proposing a tax of 5 per cent on manufactured products, the proceeds to go toward reducing the bonded debt, was reject ed, 19-38. Also an amendment by Mr. Mills, granting 20 per cent reduction in duties to those countries admitting gold and silver to their mints at the rate of 16 to 1; yeas, 26; nays, 31. On this vote one Republican, Mr. Carter, voted with the Democrats, Populists and the silver Republicans in the affirmative, and two Democrats — Caffery and Gray— voted with the Republicans in the negative. Mr. Mills (Tex.) moved to amend paragraph 395 D. by striking out "books of all kinds," his purpose being to place books on the free list; re jected, 18 to 28. An effort by Mr. Mills to have the Bible admittied free was defeated. A new paragraph was in serted in the free list: "Wafers for secramental use, or for covering or fleers It)aasirate Wa£e War. No Definite Reports of Results Yet Received. COLUMBUS, 0., July s.— President Ratchford, of the United Mine Work ers, spent the day at headquarters, but not many reports were received from the various mining districts through out the country as to the progress of the strike. President Ratchford said it would require several days to receive full information on this point, as the district presidents would necessarily have to have time to communicate with the numerous locals before reporting definitely to national headquarters as to the completeness of the suspension. Monday being observed in many places as a national holiday will naturally re tard the reports to some extent. Be fore the end of the present week, how ever, the national officers will have the in formation at hand as to the exact situation at all the mines in the coun try. If there should be any mines in operation, the officials will know their location, the number of men employed, and whether or not they are members of the miners' organization. The Information which the national officials have at hand is of a general nature and is to the effect that the miners have generally suspended work, and the strike promises to be a suc cess. The success of the whole move ment seems to devolve trpon the men In the Pititsburg district and, judging from the last advices received from that field, the miners there propose to do their part. So far as can be learn ed, the operators in both the Pittsburg and Ohio districts do not intend to put forth any effort to start their mines, but have concluded to quietly close flown and await •developments. At least it will require several days for the operators to determine upon what course to pursue. President Ratchford said he had been astonished at the great number of tel egrams received from operators re questing permission to operate their mines by paying the price demanded by the miners. These requests could not be granted for the reason that to do so would be defeating the very ob ject which the strike Is Intended to accomplish. The Ohio operators will be governed in their course by the ac tion of the Pittsburg operators. The regular meeting of the Ohio Coal as sociation will be held in Detroit to morrow, but it Is hardly probable that any action will be taken In reference to the strike further than has already been decided upon, and that is to await developments in the Pittsburg district. A prominent Ohio operator stated last evening that, in his opinion, the strike would prove a flat failure. Not that he wished it to so terminate, but from the fact that the entire Pittsburg dis trict was not represented at the meet ing held in Pittsburg on Saturday. ju.e did not believe all the mines in that district would strike and unless they do it cannot be expected that the ob ject for which the strike has been or dered will be accomplished. The miners all thi-oughout Ohio generally observed today as a holiday, and It cannot be TUESDAY MORNING, JUI,Y 6, 1897. A Test of Endurance Is Promised to Force a Final Vote. holding pharmaceutical preparations." A legal discussion ensued as to the legality of the provision that un stamped bonds, etc., "shall be utterly void and Khali not be used in evi dence." The stamp amendment aa a whole was finally agreed to on a viva voce vote, no call for a yea and nay vote being made. The "no" response was light and came from the Democratic side of the chamber. Mr. Allison proposed the amendment heretofore offered by Mr. Spooner for a tariff inquiry by three members of the board of appraisers. Mr. Teller took occasion In this connection to criticise the committee for first trans forming the house bill and then going back in substance to the house rates. He had tried to learn what amount of revenue the bill would yield, and he said he would be glad to have the chairman, Mr. Allison, throw some light on that subject. This brought Mr. Allison to his feet for the first definite statement as to the revenue expected to be derived. He said it was not possible for any expert to make exact calculations on the amount of revenue a tariff bill would yield. It had never been done and never would be done. "But from the best information available," proceeded Mr. Allison, "I believe this, bill wiJl yield $175,000,000 to $180,000,000 the first year, that is from July 1, 1897, to July 1, 1898." He said the schedules had been gone over at every stage as succes sive changes were made and he felt that this estimate could be safely made. It applied to the first year, after which there would be a much larger yield of revenue. "How much the second year" quer ied Mr. White. "It depends," answered Mr. Allison, "'but I would say something over $200, --000,000." "How much over the present law?" asked Mr. Stewart (Nev.). "About $60,000,000," res-ponded Mr. Allison. "But it will depend upon the condition of our industries. It is not possible to make more than a general estimate." Mr. Vest remarked that the average ad valorem rate of the bill would be much higher than that of the existing law; the McKlnley ad valorem being 49 per cent, the existing law 39 per cent while the estimate on the house bill was 57 per cent. Mr. Allison said the average ad va lorem of the bill in its final form would be in the neighborhood of 50 per cent. Mr. Teller (Col.) again got the floor at this point. He criticised the esti mates of the amount of-<-evenue the bill would produce, which had been offered by the majority. He ridiculed Chairman Dingley's estimate and re ferred to the admission that means must be found outside of the bill as it came from the house to supply the determined until tomorrow to what ex tent the order for a suspension will be observed. It is generally conceded, however, that the strike will be en forced in this district. PITTSBURG, Pa. July s.— The great wage struggle of the coal miners was inaugurated throughout the PiUtsburg district today, but it will be impossible to tell anything about the situation before tomorrow, as this is a general holiday, and work is suspended in all the mines of the district. This was a day of mass meetings. By a preconosrt ed arrangement of the district execu tive board of the united mine workers, meetings were held in nearly every mining settlement that was represented at Saturday's convention in this city, and the miners were implored not to falter in the grta: struggle. What effect the meeting will have cannot be determined until Tuesday niorning. When it is learned just how many men refuse to go to work, then the magnitude of the strike will mani fest itself. Much doubt is expressed as to the action of the Pirtsburg and Chicago miners on the Wheeling divis ion of the B. & O.; the M. A. Hanna & Co.'s miners, on the Pan Handle, who are working at the present rate, under an ironclad contract, and the New York and Cleveland miners at Turtle creek, Plum creek and Sandy creek. The miners' officials claim these men will strike, and the operators say they will not. In speaking of the strike, President Dolan said : "The coming week will be a busy one. I have every reason to believe that with the excep tion of a very few mines, the suspen sion will be general. Our men realize that this is the fight of their lives, and from the expressions of determination that I hear on all sides, I have every reason to believ th strike will be suc cessful. How long will it last? That is a difficult question to answer. But of one thing, you can rest assured. We are in good shape* to stay out all sum mer. By good shape, I mean we have warm weather and a prospective big demand, for lake trade coal In sight, which makes the time much more op portune than in winter." GiBM Workers Meet. PITTSBURO. Pa., July 5.— The twentieth anual convention of the American Flint Glass Workers' union began here at 10 o'clock this morning, with about 150 delegates, repre senting lf>oal unions in a dozen states and Canada, in attendance. Today's session was short, and an adjournment was taken after a temporary organization had been effected, In order that the delegates could participate in the Independence day celebration in Pitts burg. StHU.- Indorsed. BRAZIL, Ind., July 5.— A large mass meet- Ing of miners was held here today. By a unanimous vote the meeting Indorsed the action of the miners Saturday in declaring a suspension. The operators called a commit tee of the miners In session, and argued with them against suspending, but it was of no avail. deficit. He spoke of the various propo sitions the finance committee had ad vanced and then abandoned. The beer tax, he said, would not have cost the consumer a single mill. It would have been borne by the beer manufacturers who had been prosperous throughout the years of industrial stagnation. "But," continued Mr. Teller, "a great election was pending in one of the groat states of the union where a large portion of the voting population did not believe in a tax on beer, so it was sacrificed." Mr. Teller argued that there wei^ other methods of raising revenue with out laying inordinate taxes on the necessaries of life. He said he had once been greatly im|»ressed with a re mark of Mr. Allison's to the effect that we had in this country more un touched and un taxed means of reve nue than any other of the world. Mr. Teller contended, if the finance com mittee was looking for revenue from $20,000,000 to $25,000,000 could be ob tained by a reduction of the internal revenue tax on whisky to the old rat"3 or even lower. His argument was nxat the high tax of $1.10 a gallon, which was in reality a tax of 1,500 per cent stimulated illicit distilling. Mr. Teller charged! that the wood alcohol manufacturers wore closely connected with one of the great trustb of the country; In fact one of the greatest manufactories of wood al cohol was owned by a trust. "I might as well name it," said he. "It is the sugar trust which has boasted that it possessed strength enough to prevent wood alcohol from beting placed on a footing with grain alcohol and of pre venting a reduction of the tax on distilled sr/.rits. The distillers of spirits had been threatened. They had been told 'Gentleman, if you inter fere with wood alcohol, we will re duce your bonded periiod to nothing.' Treason aijd Treacfjery Cfjaf^ed. Big Political Sensation in South Carolina. SUMTER, S. C, July s.— The first meeting of the campaign for the Democratic nomination for United Slates senator to fill the place now occupied by John L. McLaurln, by ap pointment from Gov. Ellerbee, was held here today, and proved sensa tional in the extreme. It opened quiet ly in the opera house, which was only comfortably filled. County Chairman Purdy introduced Senator McLaurin as the first speaker. The senator's ad dress was conservative. He paid tribute to the memory of Senator Karl, and gave an account of his own political stewardship. Mr. McLaurin was warmly ' received, and sat down with the pleasing assurance of having T.^ade a good impression. Then the j?torm broke. Ex-United States Sen ator John L. M. Irby was introduced, and for three-quarters of an hour there was enacted as exciting a scene as perhaips has ever been witnessed at a campaign meeting in this or any other state. Things looked serious time and time again. At once Irby and Mc- Laurin were onJy prevented from clinching by interfere-neec by those on the stage. Irby in his speech applied the sever est language to McLaurin. As he came to the front the cheers for McLaurin were deafening. He made an opening sally. McLaurin made an apt aside. And the cheering was such that Irby, despite repeated efforts, could not go on. When Chairman Purdy quieted the crowd, he started out ag i ain by charg ing the crowd wltih trying to howl him down. He said he knew that it was all fixed in this hotbed of Haskel lii-m and cunservatlsro.. Pretty soon he said he did not cafe how many of these city henchmen tried to prevent him from speaking. Chairman Purdy advanced then, and saM that it was their desire to give Irby a respectful hearing, and he ask ed that he should not repeat the In sulting language. If he could not be respectful, they did not want to hear him. The committee! was not respon sible for the outbursts of feeling. Irby replied that they had insulted him first. Irby went on then, and characterized McLaurin as a rlngstreaked, striped and speckled politician. He charged him with dishonesty and with being guilty of treason and treachery- He said the foulest conspiracy that ever existed in this state was now in force, and McLaurin was its beneficiary. Finally McLaurin, who had turned pale, jumped up and faced him, say- The whisky men feared the ven geance of the powerful combination against them. Have we not the skill or have we not the courage to take the $20,000,000 of revenue which is of fered to us here?" asked Mr. Teller. "Have we reached the point where the American congress is powerless to do its duty as it sees it?" Mr. Allen criticised the amendment as designed to proviide a partisan tariff commission which could be relied on to make a jug-handled report. Mr. Spooner defended his amendment, which he said Mr. Allen had either not read or had completely misunderstood. Mr. Spooner denied that the secreta ry of the treasury would, under his amendment, have the power to sup press any portion of the report sub mitted to him. The commission would furnish Information which he hoped would have beneficial results. Mr. Morgan opposed the commission amendment on the ground that con gress had no right to delegate its pow ers. He drifted into a general discus sion of the bill. "It seizes the pile of thie people," said he, "and divides It among the politicians and their friends." Mr. Allison briefly answered the crit icisms on the Spooner amendment and then said that, in view of the opposi tion developed, the committee would withdraw the amendment, as it was not felt to be sufficiently important to further delay the bill. A new amendment by Mr. Morgan was agreed to without opposition, authorizing the president when he is satisfied that it is to the public good to suspend the operation of th.c law as to discriminating tonnage duty on merchandise or commodities or vessels of foredgn nations carrying the same. At 5:30 the bill was laid aside and after an executive session of ten minutes the senate adjourned. I CUBA IS LIKELY TO BE LEJT OH A BASE AFTER ALL. ing: "Irby. let's have an understand ing right here. We have known each other some time. You can't accuso me of dishonesty. You can't insult mt in that way." The two men faced each other. Irby replied that he had said it, and added: "1 say further that if you hit me, you'll be hit back." At this juncture Editor Appell rushed up to McLaurin and told him he would have a reply. Chnrles Emanuel rushed in and said to Irby: "No one but a coward would talk that way." Irby replied that no one but a coward would insult a guest. Mr. Purdy and others got the men quieted, the house being in an uproar. When Irby finished, McLaurin de nounced the charge that he was in a combination as absolutely false. Irby retorted that he would prove it. No other epithets were applied, though Irby said that other charges would be filed, and the furious meeting ended, having lasted only one hour and twenty minutes. Fatal Fireworks. Former President of the Bur lington Killed at Nonquitt. NEW BEDFORD, Mass., July 5.— Henry B. Stone, formerly president of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy rail road, and president of the Chicago Tel ephone company, was instantly killed at Nonquitt this morning by an explo sion of fireworks. Mr. Stone with his family and other summer residents was celebrating the holiday with a hand some display of day fireworks. Among them was a mine, which was so de vised as to scatter paper animals of various colors. Mr. Stone had applied the torch to this pieca, but for some reason It did not appear as if the spark was going to reach th« mine. Mr. Stone advanced and tt>oK the piece up in his hands, when it exploded, strik ing him full in the face. His features were badly mutilated, and he sustain ed a compound fracture of the skull. A physician was Immediately called^ but nothing could be done, Mr. Stone having been instantly killed by the shock. Mr. Stone was a regular sum mer visitor at Nonquitt. He leaves a widow and four children. The family had been contemplating a trip to Eu rope In the course of a few weeks. His remains will be sent to Chicago for Interment. PRICE TWO CENTS— < p ?v2S4S!R * f OUR WENT DDWN. Disaster to a Boating Party on Allouez Bay. TIJEIH FRAIL CRAFT CAPSIZED. Lives of Three Saved by the Crew of a Pass ing Launch. Special to the Globe. DULUTH, Minn., July 5.— A boating accident in which four persons lost their lives and three others had nar row escapes took place today on Allouez Bay near the Omaha flour dock. A party composed of Rev. H. Engham, Maggie, Christie, May Mc- Donald, Louis Sprague, Burton Mc- Cleary and Dan McDonald, all resi dents of the village of Itasca on the east side of the Nemadji river, went out for a ride on the waters of Allouez bay about 1:30 o'clock. The craft was an ordinary row boat and with seven persons in it was unsafely loaded for anything like rough weather. The party had rowed about the bay for only a few minutes when suddenly a squall appeared. The oc cupants of the boat became alarmed, and the men endeavored to get out of the boat in order to lighten it and give them an opportunity to steady the Beet Sa£ar Bo&ijty CaAc/is Called. The Republicans Desire Some United Action. WASHINGTON, July 5.— A caucus of Republican senators has been called for 10 o'clock tomorrow, to consider the advisability of relntroduclng the .beet sugar bounty amendment. The decision to call the caucus was the result of a series of conferences which consumed the greater part of the day, but which developed such a divcrgenc; of views as to make it quite evident that only by a party conference could the bounty question be settled in a way to bind all. At one time during the day it appeared that the finance com mittee would reintroduce the beet su gar amendment in response to tho representations of the advocates of a bounty. The senators holding the vtew that this was the proper course to pur sue based their arguments upon the ground that the last Republican sen atorial caucus had decided in favor of such a bounty. This brought out the fact that there had be>en comparatively few senators at the caucus when the vote was taken, and that some of 1 1 1 •■ absentees would not consent to be bound by its decision. The commit tee decided, on account of this con flict, to resubmit the matter to a cau cus. It appears probable tonight that the caucus will rescind the order of the previous session directing the com mittee to report a sugar amendment, but the sugar bounty advocates hope that at the same time the Republican senators will be instructed to vote for the amendment as offered by Senator Allen. They thus hope to put the party In the senate on record as for the amendment, while they avoid the responsibility for the delay which they admit the amendment will oc casion. The Democratic leaders still an nounce themselves as unalterably op posed to the bounty provision, and say they will debate It for an Indefinite Bodies of the Victims Were Recovered by Life Savers. boat with its helpless women occu pants.
