How a Big Misrepresentation Was Dis covered No Taritl Bill This Session - Mr. 1. M. Wilson Bringing a Big Industry South Other Notes. (Special Cor. of State Chronicle.) Washington, April 16. This week Mr. Carlisle has distinguished himself as a tariff expert. Last Monday was the day on which Mr. McKiuley and the majority of the ways and means committee prom ised to report the tariff bill to the House, provided the minority report was sent into the committee room Monday morn ing, and it proved to be an elaborate and masterly criticism on the bill as agreed upon by the majority. The figures as shown in Mr. Carlisle's report prove that instead of decreasing the tariff 18,000, 000, as was claimed by the republicans, it is really increased by $00,000,000! This was probably not intentional, but was the result of almost culpable ignor ance on the part of the Republican tar iff tinklers! Carlisle's able report fell like a thunderbolt among them, and they have kept the bill back two days so as to "tinker" themselves out of the dis graceful dilemma in which they found themselves. They reported the bill to-day in such shape as convinces th more experienced politicians that no, tariff bill will be trained this session which can possibly pass both Houses.

That is perfectly legitimate. There U a line, however, it seems to me, where abuse should stop. The man who in vades the privacy of a family and in dulges in coarse attacks on private citi zens, places himself on the level of a blackguard." Regarding the frequent personal at tacks upon himself in the Sun, Mr. Cleveland said that he did not see them, but every time one appeared, a dozen Grank's more or less would write to him about it.

On night while going through the woods he discovered the bog under a tree grunt -ing furiously and rearing up against the trunk. Approaching the tree and look ing up ho discovered a big, fat 'possum. Having a similar experietce several times, he came to the conclusion that the hog was a natural-born 'possum hog, and, making a pet of it, he took it to tho woods frequently with splendid success.
