Washington, March TO.- -The ih-l,;t:e on tic free v.ocil bill. etc.. Iwii-jiii yesterday, McMiil::i civtiinj; f,,r lln- Democrats. It i hard t,. si-(. how iinythini; cm be gained by a lout; (ii hriie on this subject, but cam paign literature must 1ms lml, a.i.l both parties a:v imed for the oratorical tns!e. McMillin said that the duty on wool, in stead of iiK ivasiiijj; iis value to the farmer had decreased it, and that the thine the McKinlrv bill had taught the American people w. , ih .j: ihetariffwasatax. That law L;al 1:1.1: eriiilly affected our com merce to its disadvantage, as vre only car ry, he said, per cent, of our own com merce in American bottoms. The 1. lections of 18!0. He then tackled the elections of 1V.H) as' follows: Whatever may have been the (situation before, the American people have come to know that the tariff is a tax, and have dealt with those who increase 1 the tax in the last congress accordingly, by administering to the authors of the high rates we now have to pay the greatest re buke that was ever administered to any party in this county, turning a Republican majority into a Democratic majority of al most three-fourths. lint it is sometimes aid by the friends of this excessive taxa tion that the Waterloo visited upon the Kepublicnn party in l1.'!' was not on ac count of the tariff bill passed. If not, what was the cause of it McMillin Asks Some Ouestions. '"Will the distinguished gentleman from Massachusetts Lodge adm-t that it was a rebuke to him and his followers for pass ing the f vce biil? A ill the gent leman from Maine, the ex-speaker of the house, admit that it was not the tariff, but was the result of his administration of affairs here? Will those gentlemen who were in charge of the appropriations admit that it was An account of the prodigality of that congress? These had something to do with it doubtless, but the greatest fac tor that entered into the overwhelming defeat was the tariff law that we are at tempting to amend." Another Amendment Needed. He said thatthe provision allowing those who were able to go to Kurope to bring in free of duty quantities of clothes made abroad should be. amended. A rich man coulilgo to Europe and bring back with hiiwrree of duty goods for himself that if be brought them for some piSir man would cost that man from i to&i duty. There should be a limit on the amount of goods thus admitted free. Ke curring again to the fsiRt elections he said: "From Maine to California, from the lakes to the gulf, people rose almost as one man. They condemned it in bulk and in detail. They relegated to private life the lesders who had conceived it and the fol lowers who had executed it. An arrogant majority was converted into an insignifi cant minority. New England sent a ma jority of Democrats here; the whole north sent a majority; the south sent a majority Some Results of the Voting. "So overwhelming was the defeat that if ycu divide the country into two sections, north and south, and remove every Demo crat from the south the Democrats from the north would still be in the majority. If you remove every Democrat from the north, those from the south would have a majority over their opponents. Kank and file were smitten hip'and thigh, until to day there are but a handful of those who favored the bill left on this floor. On the other hand, among the Democrats who opposed it, only one in the United States who was renominated was defeated by the people." 1'xrhniigcs Retorts nilh Kcctl. In conclusion McMillin referred to the peroration of Heed on Monday replying to Williams of Massachusetts, declaring that the triumphant march of truth was exemplified by the ascendancy of the Democratic party after twenty-five years, and the relegation of Keed to the floor where he could only cry and curse. Keed was not in his seat, but entered the hall in time to hear the concluding sen tence. In accounting for his absence, he said that it was due to the fact that Mc Millin was speakim:. fljiughter.J McMillin repl-d that he was glad to an nounce to the gentleman from Maine that the Democrat ic party arrived in his city Portland Tuesday. Laughter). DINGLEY BEGINS A REPLY. lie Charges the Democrat with lodging the Question. McMillin was frequently applauded, and when he closed the cheers amounted to an ovation. After a few moments passed in obtaining order, Dingley of Maine took the floor. He said the situation which confronted the Democratic party as de scribed by McMillin was significant. They were divided against themselves. The party had gone before the people in the last election and bad made false and wicked charges against the Republicans. The people of the country were looking with anxiety to see what they intended to do. The policy was not well defined. Upon looking over the three sporadic bills reported by the committee on ways and means, he had endeavored to ascertain the scope of each and to see exactly what tariff reform meant as defined by the Democrats in the house Indulging in a Deluaiun. This was the realization of the promise made In 1890 under which so many Demo crat were here today. This was the rem edy for the "-atrocious" McKinley bilL This was to give relief to the country. Prosperity was to be restored. This was the delusion in which the Democratic party proposed to indulge, and pose before the people as tariff reformers. There were also a few other bills which they propovd to bring in. The present tariff in all its parts was co-relative and framed in view of a consistent policy. There was cottia La the bill's reported wmcn eiiaWc-a nnj one to judge us to the purposes of the Demo cratic party on this great question. Some AUegeil Ineoiisisteneieft. If free binding tw ine, free wool, and free cotton-ties weiv sin index of the jKjiicy, t :tii the Democrats, were free traders. What a spectacle in these bills. Coltou ties on the free list and hoop-iron, of whith cot tou-tics were made, protected at iio per cent. A new scheme of the Democratic party had arrived whe completed manu factured articles were put upon the free list anil the raw material was taxed. Tl.e farmer's wool, a complete product as to him, was on the free list, and manufactur er's cloth is protected at per cent. Calls the Kills Absurd and I 11 just. It was undoubtedly the policy of the Democratic party to sweep all production out of the way. This was t he method they had adopted of cheating the jieople, but the latter were not fools and would not lie deceived. The bills a3 reported were absurd, unjust and unwise in every particular. If the Democrats in the house believed in the policy of their party they w ould bring in measures w hich illustrated its principles. Hut they were afraid. They, like' the ostrich, were hid ing in the wild.. If the party acted n lu.norable ni-jii. they would ask the people to judge of the two parties next fall on di rect issues. Throws Down the Gauntlet. They dared not go to the people on tha tariff issue. They dodged the question, legislation so unjust, so devoid of princi p'e as that proposed would not meet with t tie Kppi .iVAl of the jieople. who were not f i i-. and could distinguish between hon t'ty and treachery. i 'ending further remarks by Dingley the to.iiiniitee rose and the house adjourned.
