Washington, March TO.- -The ih-l,;t:e on

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
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).
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.

Call on Hill to Come Out.
Washington', March '.0. Representative
Harter has addressed a letter to Senator
Hill asking him to let him know how he
stands on the DIand Bill. Harter says that
Hill's public utterances arenot sufficiently
plain for him to understand, and as Hill is
a candidate for president the people are
entitled to know just where he stauds on
that important question. Harder asks
that the senator state his view-, "briefly,
clearly, distinctly and unmistakably."
Condition of Secretary Rlaine.
Washington, March 10. Secretary
Blaine was better yesterday. His fever
had entirely disappeared, and he was less
restless. By direction of his physician no

advised that it had assumed the acute
phase. His friends hope that with abso

his official duties next week.
