New Hampshire Senator Picks Flaws
In the Statement of the Gentle
man From Mjiine.
Washington, sept. 4.— President
McKinley and the entire membership
Of the cabinet will probably be con
sulted before Attorney General Mo-
Kenna announces his opinion as to the
construction to be placed upon section
22 of the Dingley law, imposing dis
criminating duties. The attorney gen
eral had expected to announce his de
cision this week, but now the under
standing is that it is to be held back
until next week, and, in the meantime,
the president will cut short his outing |
and return to Washington. It is prob
able that the question will be the sub
ject of a general exchange of views at
a meeting of the cabinet, before the
opinion is written. The questions in
volved are so important that all the
light possible is to be thrown en them
before the administration is commit
ted to a construction which might de
moralize the entire foreign commerce
of the country and which involves a
1 ?Ti::Urr of about $30,000,000 per year in
customs revenues, according to the
calculations of the officials of the treas
ury department.
This calculation Is made on the basis
of last year's imports and on the as- |
sumption that the imports under the
discriminating duty would be prac
tically the same in value and would
come in ships of the same nationalities.
British ships, bringing goods from
other countries than British territories
in Europe, would be the heaviest suf
ferers, and It Is expected that one re
sult of the Imposition of this duty
would be the transfer of many British
ships to the flags of nations having
more favorable treaties with the Unit
ed States.
The general assumption is that, on
account of the imposition of these du
ties on goods coming into the United
States through a contiguous country,
the transcontinental roads of the Unit
ed States would be benefited at the
expense of the Canadian Pacific road;
but, when it is taken into considera
tion that the steamship connections of
most of these roads would be unfavor
ably affected, it appears that about
the only road which would gain any
decided advantage would be the South
ern Pacific, which, having connection
with the American line of steamships I
from San Francisco, would have the
advantage of discrimination in favor
of its steamship connection as well as
against its Canadian rival.
About the- only cities that would
gain any decided advantage would be
Halifax and St. John, as the effect of
the discriminating duty on :.joods
brought into the United States over j
the Canadian Pacific would tend to
break up the transit of such goods
through New England to the seaboard
ami divert this traffic to those ports
in British territory.
The Gentleman Front New Hamp
shire Returns to the t'lmrge,
BOSTON, Sept. 4.— Senator William
E. Chandler, of New Hampshire, who
a few days ago started a discussion
by stating that the discriminating
clause of section 22, of the Dingley
tariff bill, was passed by a "trick of
legislation," In the H"t?v!d, this morn
ing, replies to ggiiator Frye, who a
few dayt^afo declared that he could
<"■'' U_ni how the amendment was pass
£ Jf.
■^'Senator Frye is a good and conclu
sive witness that what I say is true,"
says Senator Chandler. "I quote Sen
ator Frye's own words: 'How this
amendment to section 22 was secured,
I know not.'
"Senator Frye seems to mean that
he did not know until after the con
ference report was adopted on July
24, that the trick clause was in it. If
that is what he does mean, then he
certainly was tricked, because his re
lation to the whole subject, as chair
man of the committee on commerce,
made it impossible that he should not
have known that it was done, unless
it was done surreptitiously as to him,
and all senators and members, except |
the few contrivers of the device. If
on the other hand, Senator Frye did ;
know before July 24, that the thing
was done, but did not know how it was i
done, after he had failed in his open j
plan, he omitted for the whole week j
of debate over the conference report in :
the senate to tell his New England
constituents who had struck this blow
at New England interests.
"As Senator Frye says, the conferees
are all honorable men. Of course they j
had the necessary explanatory state- |
ment written, and it was left out by ■
the 'blunder of a clerk.' That is al- ;
ways the safest ground to take in such I
cases. But whether legislation thus
obtained will stay, even nominally,
upon the statute books is doubtful.
Moreover, whether the attorney gen
era! will find that the trickery of
legislation must be enforced until re- j
pealed, is not yet settled. It should !
not take him fifteen minutes to hold
that the contiguous country clause
only applies where there is no treaty
allowing goods to come without extra
duties in ships entering our seaports; I
while if conventions are necessary to |
a vi iid the effect of the other part of
the trick, it should not take Secretary
Sherman fifteen minutes to make them
with England. France and Germany,
and the collection of discriminating
duties should await the deliberate ac
tion to congress."

Submitted to the Secretary by Capt.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 4.— The annual
report of Capt. Alex Rodgers, of the
Fourth cavalry, who is acting as su
perintendent of the Y^semite National
park, was received by the secretary of
the Interior today. He reports that
the regular patrols have found that
there is less trespassing in the park
than In past years, but says the depre-
dations by sheep and their herders are
the worst they have to contend with.
The game, Capt. Rodgers says, seems
to be increasing in numbers, and the
deer and other animals show less fear
of human beings than in past years,
"an indication that they are not hunt
ed so much as they formerly were."
This condition of affairs leads him to
