Leaders and Promoters of Low Prices. nd All Programme Are Subject to Change In the 1'j.per House Hopeful Statesmen ThinV the Middle of Next Week Will fcee the End l'aliner and the Nevada Member Have a Colloquy Al leged Outline of the Coming Tariff Kill. Washington-, Oct. iff. -The programme ol the managers of the repeal bill in the senate is to get to voting some t ime daring today on the amendments to the bill, fin ishing the work on the amendments on Saturday, and vote upon the bill itself Monday. This schedule is of course sub ject to change. When it was arranged it was supposed that Stewart would conclude his speech last night. That he did not do, and if he should wish to proceed today it h possible that it will become necessary to change the plans so as to defer the vote upou the amendments until Saturday. Allen will not speak at great length. Wol cjH will make a fifteen-minute speech, and Gorman may also make a brief statement. Mr. Stewart, ie Senate Wait. There may possibly also be a few other bhort speeches before the clo-e of the de bate. Faulkner after again canvassing the senate thought it would be possible, if Stewart did not extend his remarks tor too great a length of time, to begin the voting by 3 or 4 o'clock this afternoon. The opinion prevails in the senate that the house will pass the bill when it Is sent over with very little delay and the sena tors are hope of concluding the busi ness of the exi r.i set sion by the middle of next week. Whether there shall theu be a recess or an adjournment will depeuii upon the cominilU-e on ways and means. If t he I-mocralic members of thai com mittee are if the opinion that the tariff bill will be iu shape foi presentation be fore the time for the lieaiunin of the reg ular session a recess is more probable than an adjournment. The Way State Politic! Conies In. There was a well-defined report in circu lation alxjut the 'apitol that there had leen an effort made to have the Demo cratic manager in the senate postpone voting uron the bill until after the Vir ginia election, upon the theory that the passage of the bill at this time would have the tfTect of injuring the chance? of the Democratic party in that state. It appears that the Virginia Populists have made their fight in t his campaign almost entirely upou the silver issue, and have made such headway as to render the Dem ocratic managers somewhat anxious. The suggestion appears to have received some consideration, but when it was rep resented upon the other band that the im mediate passage of the bill would have a pood effect in Massachusetts and New York it was thought best to let the bill take its course. Tower II at. an Amendment. Senator iiowersspent considerable a por tion of a day in gatherum (nets concerning the silver bullion in the treasury with the view of getting support for an amendment to the repeal bill, providing for the coin age of this bullion, which will be offered by himself cr s.uuc other silver senator. He tinds that there is sufl.ciciit of t'.ie bullion stored to make l:'4.t-Xi,(iX iJ coined. Ho hns been canvassing the proposition somewhat among senators and finds that it meets with favor ger ally among silver men. There is a feel ing, however, among the silver Democrats that the bill should not be amended in any way at their instance, so that the adminis tration may have all the praise and all the blame for it when it shali become a law. STEWART HAS NOT DONE YET. He Continues His Serial and lias a Colic juy with l'aliner. Washington, Oct. 27. Stewart, who was -jngjjf the silver men who wanted an hour or so more to speak, spoke an hour or two yesterday in the senate and was still not done. It is probable that whea the time be has occupied is all counted up he will have made the longest steech on record. The old charge that the act of 1S73, which "demonetized' silver, was passed by Health, was reiterated again, in spite of Stierman's declaration some weeks ago that the man who said so lied. Palmer asked whether he did not vote for it. Stewart admitted that he Ldid, but he said he did so ignorantly. Every senator and representative, but one (referring to Sher man) had been deceived. No man who had voted for that act knowingly would ever be forgiven either in this world or the next. Iaughter.J "How about those who voted for it ig norantly?" asked Partner. "They will not go to the bad place," re plied Stewart, "If they had possessed the means of knowing what was in' the act they would have known it." Palmer remarked that he had been told the bill was printed. "VeF," replied Stewart. Then turning to Palmer he said: "Do you know all that is printed?" Palmer admitted that he did not. ''But,'' he said blandly, "I hope if those who fa vored that act go to sheol that those who voted for it iguorantly will go to purga tory at least." "Why should a man go to purgatory who did not sin wilfully? " asked Stewart. "There must be 'evil intent' in order to commit a crime." "There is such a thing as criminal ignor ance," suggested Palmer. "If I am guilty of criminal ignorance," replied Stewart. "I have so many senator? and, members with me that I am willing to go to the tad place with them." Stewart was denouncing English influ ence in American legislation in the farther course of his speech when Palmer again interrupted him. Palmer said he had listened during this debate with a feeling of humiliation that he never expected to suffer to the imputation that we are under the influence of England. "I have sup posed that this country was independent." "I hat shows bow much mistakeu you are," said Stewart. "I am nit mistaken. I protest that this array of Euglisb influence and English Dover iu the American senate, is humili ating to all 01 us. My ancestors fought England in every war. My constituents are not fearful of England in war or in peace. Instead of shrinking back iuto a depreciated currency we challenge Eng land on every land, in every port, on every sea we are A mericans. These appeals to our fears are thrown away." "I am very glad the senator shows spirit," said Stewart. "If he had knowl edge equal to his pluck he would be a very Considerable man. Laughter. He reminds me of the admiral who boarded a railway car bis courage exceeds his dis cretion." Laughter. Before Stev art began to talk Teller had the floor, and laid down two propositions which he said were incontrovertible that the supply and demand of money deter mined its v lue, and that the amount of money in circulation determined the price of a commodity. Teller contended that there bad been a general fall of prices for twenty years, beginning with the demon etization of silver in 173, and a question by Higgins as to how he reconciled with bjs statement the fact that corn and pork products had not fallen and had remained proportionately high resulted in a general discussion on the subject. , Teller did not believe that any legislation to increase the volume of money by legis lation favorable to silver would be had in the next four years. There would be no effective legislation in that direction until the great American population was heard from. Referring to the recent proposed compromise Teller said it was rumored that a very large and respectable portion of the senate had agreed to some adjust met of the difficulty. It had been said in a WAV thut illctiHAfl liin, tn .nAtil'in., it that he who had no right to speak to the senate had declared that no compromise should take place. I ROUGH DRAFT OF THE TARIFF BILL. ' fcaid by a Washington Paper To lie in the Hands of the President. I Washington, ci:.t. -7. It is understood that a rough draft of the proposed tariff bill is now iu the hands of President Cleve land arid Secret-try Carlisle for their pe rusal. What has been done on the tarriff bill now i subject to changes, but ft is thought that all those things which have been definitely decided on by the sub-committee will stated through the final re vision of t tie bill, says aa evening paper. Some of the feat urea of the bill are radical. The woolen schedule is the Springer free wool bill which passed the bouse last con gress incorporated into the bill practically without change. There is to be a radical cut made in the glass schedule. There will be a considerable enlargement of the free list by the addition of raw materials and a heavy cut in all duties which are not properly revenue duties. The idea of tariff for revenue only is adhered to quite closely, but this application may not be made i-j coaL Iron ore goes on the free list and there is very considerable shaving down ol the entire iron and steel schedule. The tax on whisky will be increased not above 20 cents, but the exact amount of the increase is not decided. An increase in the beer tax practically decided on. The sub-committee have not quite made np their own minds on the sugar question, but they are practically determined not to try to get any revenue out of Bugar. The purpose is to classify leflned and umefined sugar closer together, but this in more apt to be done by reducing the duty on re fined sugar than by putting any duty on the -uurefiaed. The bounty will go. Either an income tax or an inheritance tax will he provided for to increase the I revenues. . lioingi, in Senate and Home. Washington, Oct. 27. In the senate Doiph advocated giving authority to the secretary of the treasury to issue bonds to maintain the gold reserve, at not more than per cent, interest. Teller and Stew art continued their serials on the silver question, and neither of them concluded. Another recess was taken. ; The acting chaplain of the house re ferred in his prayer to the death of Chap- . lain Jiauaaway, and the bouse passed reso lutions of regret. The resolutions ac knowledging the participation of foreign governments in the World's fair were agreed to. A resolution wai adopted to stop engrossing bills by band and have them printed Instead. This will make a great saving and throw some ex pert penmen out of jobs. The bankruptcy bill was then resumed and adjournment reached without action. ABBREVIATED TELEGRAMS.

Washington, Oct. :.". There was a lit tle flutter among some members of the house when the report was circulated that in the income tax scheme there would be included a provision to tax mortgages. Western men assert that taxing mortgages would mean that the person borsowing money would be obliged to pay an in creased amount of interest to meet the amount of the tax, and the men loaning the money would not be injured. Inquiry among lhe members of the ways and means committee does not confirm the re port. Playing It Sharp on the House. Washington, Oct. 27. A discussion is going on as to whether, if the house ad journs now the members should be paid mileage when they attend the regular ses sion. The appropriation committee has thrown cold water on the discussion by announcing that it will not put in the ap propriation bill any provision for mileage for the next regular session, and the mem bers will have to vote it into the appropria tion bill themselves. House Employes Are Interested. Washington, Oct. 27. The employes and clerks of representatives in the house are very much interested over whether or not the house will adjourn or take a recess after the silver bill goes through. If there should be an adjournment none of these men would receive pay until the house met again, but if there should be a recess their pay would go on. Loss of a Pacific Mail Bteamer.
