Washington City, Oct. l. The senate
was the center of interest in congression
al circles yesterday, as was wen under
stood that the house was ready to ad
journ whenever the senate said the word.
The question was as to when the senate
would say it. There were two long
speeches to be made, everybody knew
those of Carlisle and Aldrich, the latter
closing the debate but whether between
these two the floodgates of elo
quence would be opened and th debate
a-'iit over for another day was a matter
still among the things no fellow could
find out, don't you know.
Carlisle Opens His Batteries.
The debate was opened by Carlisle, who
bad been given the honor of making the
principal speech in opposition to the bilL
He said he would not arte in pt to state the
effect of the measure on thV revenue, as it
was impossible trr'do so wh any degree
of accuracy, but he could and would say
approximately what its effect on taxation
would be. The average rate of duty un
der this bill would be CO per cent, instead
of 45V per cent, under existing law. De
ducting sugar and molasses from the cal
culation, the rate under existing law
would be found to be 41 per cent., and the
average on the same articles under the
conference bill 60 per cent., an increased
rate of 50 per cent.
Big; Increase of Taxation Claimed.
The increase of taxation would be $10,-
000,000 in the iron and steel schedule, $14,
OuysiO in the woolen schedule, f.'.OOJ.OOO
in the cotton schedule, $,000,i)Jo in the
flax and hemp schedule, UTISUKX) in the
tin-plate schedule, and $1,357,000 on tin in
pigs or bars. He declared that the change
in the sugar schedule would benefit no
producer or consumer in the country,
while the bounty would roach from $7,-
000,000 to $S,0M),0O0 per aaoum. Not even
th beet sugar industry would be benefit
ed. It was a sectional measure, violating
every social compact of the country.
The Reciprocity Clause.
Carlisle criticised the reciprocity clause,
which, he said, coiiUded to the judgment
or caprice of the president alone the de
termination not alone of certaiu facta de
fined in the law, but of the results and
effects of these facts and circumstances.
The amendment reported from the
finance committee arul adopted by the
senate was not reciprocity; it was retali
ation. Sugar had been put on the free
list in this bill on the sole ground that it
would benefit the consumers in the United
States. The proposition contained in the
amendment was to retaliate on the people
of the United States by imposing certain
duties on sugar, teas, etc.
An Alleged Inconsistency,
Carlisle spoke of the inconsistency of
putting sugar on the free list because the
United States did not produce a large
proportion of the quantity cousumed, and
of putting tin-plate on the free list be
cause the United States did not produce
auy of it. There was no market in South
America, be said, for our agricultural
products. It was a false pretence to say
that the proposed "reciprocity amend
ment" was for the benefit of the farmers.
It was to benefit the manufacturers of
the United States. But he did not think
any Republican senator had any serious
idea that the reciprocity feature of the
bill would ever be put into effect. The
additional revenues which would result
from the proposed imposition of duties
ou sugar, coffee, and tea would aggregate
Aldrich' Closing; Speech.
Allison controverted Carlisle's estimate
as to the effect on the revenue, and said
there wouid lie a reduction of from $40,
000,000 to $45,000,000, and after some re
marks from Gray and others, Aldrich
rose to close the debate. He said that the
first congress which met after the signing
of the constitution had granted bounties
and imposed taxes. Speaking of the in
creases of duty made in the bill, he said
that they were of four classes The first
included corrections of errors and irregu
larities; to this class belonged tin-plate
and cotton ties. Another class oonalsted
of articles which it was not supposed at
the time of the passage of the law of 1333
could be manufactured in the United
States. It Included the finer grade of
manufactures in cotton, flax and linen.
and iron and steel schedules. A third
class consisted of articles on which here
tofore small a-1 valorem rates bad been
Importers Versns Manufacturer.
The fourth class included agricultural
products. The duties on wool had been
increased largely at the demand of tha
representatives of the agricultural sec
tion of the country. These four classes
comprehend all of the increases of the
bill. Aldrich spoke of the delegation of
importers who bad appeared before the
finance committee and asked that certain
rates of duty be Imposed. These men to
whose demands the representatives of the
Democratic party were so willing to sub
mit represented foreign labor and foreign
industry. The manufacturers who had
appeared before the committee represent
ed American labor and industry.
The Duty on Tin Plate.
Speaking of the duty on tin plate
Aldrich expressed the belief that it would
transfer that industry from Wales to the
United States, and fnrnish the people of
this country a cheaper and a batter arti
cle than they were now getting. He be
lieved that the protective policy was to be
Judged iu the future by that one item,
and he thought that the result would be
such that within three years it would
be extremely dangerous for a representa
tive of the people to arise in his place and
KfTect on the Revenue.
In reply to Gorman, Aldrioh said that
the bill would reduce the revenue about
$0,20,000 below the amount that the sen
ate bill would reduce it. The principal
reduotion niadu in conference was on
tobacco and on the special taxes for retail
dealers. He added that the rate of taxa
tion of goods imported in 1888 waa45.lt
per cent., and that (the amount of im
portations being the same) the rate under
the conference bill would be 44-$), as
against the sixty per cunt, asserted by
The Time for Voting; Arrives.
At the close of Aldrich's remarks the
senate proceed to vote by yeas and nays,
on the conference report. The first break
in the party ranks was made when Tad
dock's name was called. He said that he
was paired with Kustls, but as Eustis
would have voted "No," he would vote
"No." The next break came immediately
after, when Pettegrew's name was called.
He a id that he was paired with Call, but
as Call would have voted "No," he would
"No." The third and last break was when
Plumb, after all other senators had voted,
stood up and, bis nama having been
called, voted "No."

ADJOURNMENT PROBABLE TO-DAY.
Nothing In the Way Except the Presi

Washington City, Oct L Tlie impres
sion prevailed last night that congress
would adjourn to-day. Senator Aldrich
said that he would bring in a resolution
early in the day for an adjournment some
time during the afternoon. The passage
of this resolution through both bouses
will depend upon the condition of busi
ness. If the tariff bill is sent to the
president early in the day (and there
seems no reason why it ahould not lie in
his hands by 1 o'clock) he will le able to
notify the house that it has been signed
within an hour or two. Then nothing
will interveue between the two houses

THE INFAMOUS WHITE-CAFS.
Another Specimen of Their Dattardly
and Devilish Work.
? Birmingham, Ala., Oct. 1. Kens was

White-Cap outrage which occurred in

when a volley was fired and a load of
buckshot took effect in her side, inflicting
a fatal wound.
Just So, Same Elsewhere.
The White-Caps fled when the w iman
fell, and she lay there until morning be'
fore she was found. She was unable to

Chicago, Oct 1. A fire, which nearly
resulted in the death of nine firemen,
raged last night in S. Franklin's picture
frame factory at 171 and 173 Canal street
The Injured men are: John Riley, engine
10, probably fatally; Andrew Nelson, en
gine 17, probably fatally; Richard Hal-
verson, Tom Cochrane, Charles Clexton,
Sylvester Higgins, William Kiley, Daniel
Tuomy; William Carey the seven latter
all of engine 17, except Tom Cochrane,
who belongs to engine 10.
Location of the Fire,
The building is an old frame shanty
faced in brick, and is hemmed in on the
south by the five story block occupied by
the Emmerich Feather company. Just
how the fire started no one seems to know,
but within a few minutes flames were
bursting from all parts of the building.
The ugly location of the fire prompted the
captain of engine 10. who was first to ar
rive, to turn in a general alarm. Twenty
engines and as many hoso carts responded
A southeast wind,-- lapping around the
corner of the big Emmerich building,
quickly fanned the blaze into an immense
furnace, and rendered the open square in
the rear of the building a veritable cal
The Firemen's Fight Begun.
A huge mass of flame, reaching from
the ground to a height of 100 feet, swirled
around in the open corrider, and even the
firemen hesitated at the entrance of a nar
row alley leading from Adams street A
dozen streams of water soon drove the im
mense tongue of flame into the building.
but flames still rushed from every aper
and window, and sprang in a hundred
tongues from the cement flooring where
the firemen stood. The force of water at
the front of the building helped the
strong east wind and rendered the task of
those who fought the fire in the rear
A Mad Knsh for Safety.
Suddenly the bellowing of fire captains
and the crackling of burning timbers
were drowned by a yell that could have
been heard a block away. The crowd was
bawling to the firemen at the rear to run
for their lives. Throwing down their
nozzles the firemen made a mad rush for
a place of safety. At the same instaut
a heavy wall toppled over and rolled
down into a brokeu mass in the caldron
below. Quickly as they had retreated,
the firemen ruhed back to learn if any of
their comrades had been caught in the
falling ruins. A dozen willing bauds
quickly extricated Fireman Riley from a
burning heap, and half dragging, half
lifting him through the labyrinth of
pipes, the poor fellow was carried to a pa
trol wagon. At first it was thought that
the mnn had been killed. His right ear
had been torn off, and an ugly wound in
the chest, from which the blood was flow
ing, showed where he had been crushed.
The second fireman taken out of the ruins
was Tom Cochrane, of Engine 10, but his
wounds were not serious.
Caught In a Basement.
Meanwhile a scene of still greater hor
ror was being enacted in the basement ot
the Emmerich building, where company
17 were engaged Iu beating back the
flames from the larger structure. As the
north wall of the quadrangle fell the
lower portion of it bulged forward into
the basement of the Emmerich building,
and the next moment a shower of blazing
timbers had buried half a dozen men,
pressing them down to what seemed cer
tain death. Wirh an effort bora of the
fearful peril. Firemen Halverson and
Higgins dragged themselves from be
neath the burning mass. Their blazing
clothes weie quickly smothered and the
men hurried off to get their wounds
But the position of Fireman Clexton
was one of almost indescribable peril.
Two beams had fallen across his shoul
ders, wedging him firmly in the fiery
heap, while a few feet away the heavy
hose pipe was melting away in the flames
like so much solder. To make an effort to
save Clexton it was necessary to .cross the
thiu crust, of the seething furnace. A
false step meant a headlong plunge into
the burning hole. But the slim chance
was accepted by the comrades of the im
prisoned man. The wonderful discipline
of the brigade stood the men in good
stead, and by a nnited effort they succeed
ed in pulling Clexton from his perilous
predicament just as the flames beneath
had begun to burn his rubber overalls.
He was not badly hurt,
lender the Kissing; Timbers.
Beneath the blazing timbers were Fire
men Kiley and Carey. To turn a hose on
the burning heap was the work of a few
seconds, and the flames were speedily ex
tinguished, when a haaty search was
made for the bodies of the missing fire
men. When the searchers were rewarded
by the discovery of both men. It was seen
that in neither case was life yet extinct
Kiley had sustained severe injurnss from
the falling roius. two of his ribs being
broken, but his comrade had by a miracle
escaped bodily injury, and was simply un
conscious from suffocation.
An hour of hard work cot the flames
nnder control. The loss will be between
$33,000 and KO.OOO; partly insured.

Chicago, Oct 1. "G. V. Guthrie. New
York." "Mrs. E. A. Wells, Grand Rapids,
Mich.," were two names that might have
been seen inscribed upon the Palmer
house register last Friday morning. There
was nothing extraordinary about the fact,
but the subsequent developments con
cerning them were interesting enough.
Mr. Guthrie was assigned a room in the
entresol, while Mrs. Wells was given an
apartment on the fourth floor. Mrs.
Wells possessed graces of form and feat
ure that at ouce attracted attention, and
when it was observed that Mr. Guthrie
seemed upon pleasant terms of friendship
with her. many were the envious glances
that were cast upon him. While the
two people wera frequently noticed to
gether in the dining room and occasion
ally upon some prominent thoroughfare,
there wag nothing to indicate anything in
their relai ions not found in the code of
A Nemesis on the Trail.
One person, however, differed with other
people, apparently, for he soon took occa
sion to visit Grand Rapids. That visit
was prolific of results, as was demon
strated by subsequent events. The air of
a man who fully nppreciates the pleasures
of life, which seemed so noticeably a part
of Mr. Guthrie's personality, was rudely
disturbed Monday, however. An attenu
a'ed, feeble gentleman appeared at the
Palmer house that morning accompanied
by two companions. The gentleman was
