The senate makes the collectors of in ternal revenue the officers in charge of! the collection of the Income taxes, In stead of deputy collectors, as provided In the Wilson bill. The right of appeal against the imposition of unjust taxes is retained, but final decision rests with the commissioner of internal revenue, and not with the secretary of the treas ury, as provided In the house bill. The following exceptions to the tax are Inserted: "Provided, that dividends or interest accruing to states, counties or municipalities, and dividends, Inter est or annuities accruing to corpora tions or associations organized and con ducted solely for charitable, rcligiius or educational purposes, or to any trus tees or other Judiciary, on stocks, shares, funds or securities held solely or charitable, religious or educational purpo?o, or salaries lue .state, tounty or municipal officers, fhall not be sub ject' to such tax or deduction." In taxing salaries of employes of cor porations, the house bill makes it the duty of corporations to pay the tax of each employe and then deduct It from the selniies.

The time when returns on in come taxes are to be made Is changed from the first day of March to the first "Monday" Of March. The section mak ing it a perjury to falsify any preced ing under the Income tax Is stricken out.

Precious stones of all kinds, cut, not set, 15 per cent, Wilson bill 30; if set, 30, Wilson bill 35. . The free list is not so much changed as it was supposed it would be, and the abstractions from it are far more numerous than the additions. Apples of all kinds are stricken from the free list and placed on the dutiable list, are also beef, mutton and pork. I3ltu mlnous coal, shale, coal slack and coke are transferred to the duWable list, leaving anthracite on the free list. Diamonds and other precious stones, rough or uncut, are added to the free list. Iron ore end sugar are moved to the dutiable list.

The administrative features of th bill are substantially Identical with those of the house bill. An exception in tho Wilson bill as to personal effects not subject to duty is enlarged to read "And personal and household effects specifically enumerated In the new list of this act." Tho sections covering the tax on spirits are new throughout. DISSATISFIED SENATORS. Several Features of ' the Tariff Which Are Objectionable. Bill Washington, March 8. The proceed' lngs of the Benate committee on finance were in the main informal today. Copies of the bill were handed all the mem bers, and there was some discussion for a time for the consideration of the bill by the full committee, the republican members saying, they would desire a reasonable period and the democratic members expressing themselves as will ing to grant that without cavil. Satur day next, at 10 a. m., was set for the next meeting, when the republicans will probably be able to say what they will require. It Is considered probable th'it they will ask for an entire week after the next meeting day, and posBlbly more.-i The democratic ' members say that whatever mayioccur hereaftsr will be chargeable to the republicans, and they must assume the responsibility. Senator Jones, of Arkansas, chairman of the tariff sub-committee, Is of the opinion that the bill as reported would produce a revenue of about $470,000,000 or $480,000,000, without taking Into hc- count the Increased amount which would be the result of reductions in tariff rates. Senator Hill declined to say anything on the bill until he made his speech The Pacific Coast senators gun. -lly tAPieaaeu iiicrnsei ves against tne ure of the bill which abrogates th treaty with Hawaii, because so trany people of the Coast have large Invest ments In the Hawaiian sugar planta Hons and because the commerce of the Coast had been greatly aided by the sugar industry.

AN EXCITING SCENE IN COURT His Friends Cheer and Wave Their Hats and Extend Their Conffratalations. Associated Press. '' Chicago, March 8. Daniel Coughlin, the ex-detectlve who has been on trial for several weeks past for complicity In the assassination of Patrick Henry Cronln, Is now a free man, the Jury having Teturned a verdict of not guilty late this afternoon. When the verdict was read a great shout wept up from the crowd In the court room. Hats were thrown high In the air, handkerchiefs waved and cheer after cheer broke upon the stiff and stately court room, and a mad rush was made for the door by those who were anxious to tell the news to the crowds outside. ' Judge Tuthlll, his face aflame with Indignation at this breach of court equlette, demanded si lence and the bailiffs vigorously pound ed for order, but It took considerable time for the enthusiasm of the crowd to Bubslde. The newspaper men, his old-time friends before his troubles were on him, went up In a body and nearly wrung his hand off. "It's all right, boys, all right," gasped Coughlin, as he reached for three or four hands at once. "It'B all right, boys, I won't forget you. You treated me all right." Then the prisoner worked his way up to the Jury-box and shook hands with as many as he could reach, '. He then started to leave the room. Just then a cry of "Make way there open a passage; make way," was heard and two stalwart bailiffs pushed through the crowd," and" close .behind them, her hat awry, her yell halt up, gasping with Bobs that choked her, came Mrs. Coughlin. : "Dan, come back; here's your wife,' called 60 voices, and Coughlin prompt ly retraced his steps and met his wle. The woman gave an Incoherent cry; her arms went up and fastened them selves around her husband's neck, then she gave way utterly. She only said "Dan! Oh, Dan!" concede Just as much as Ireland extorts by the organization of her people. The time has arrived, not only for plain speaking, but prompt action, and we call upon you no longer to tolerate the policy of national subserviency to Eng lish party interests. Organize the forces of our race In support of the Strugs'0 for a national government, inslat tht't the cause of Ireland be kept solidly to the front by those who speak in your behalf, and show you regard it nobler In your race and more befitting the dig nity and honor of Ireland to continue. If necessary, the bitter struggle with both the English peoples, than eontlnus to be the scorn of one and the deluded dupes of the other." THE BLUEFIELDS INCIDENT. Preparation of Cleveland's Reply to the Morgan Resolution. Washington, March 8. The president has turned over to the secretary of state the preparation of his answer to the Morgan resolution- calling for Informa tion relative to the landing of British troops at Blueflelds, Nicaragua. There is reason to believe the president Is preparing for a vigorous and unmis takable assertion of the rights of the United States In the control of Central America, and that the correspondence will Include imittera of later date than tho brief report from Minister Baker of the landing of the British troops. It Is still hoped he troops were landed solely to protect the lives and property of British subjects, instead of for the purpose of interfering between Nicar agua and the Mosquito government, but there Is no disposition to disguise the real gravity of the Incident, for al though the British have often talked vt their rights for a protectorate and even threatened it, never before In this ceni tury has It come to pass that British troops actually landed In Central America since the assertion of the Mon roe doctrine to assert a protectorate. PROMINENT PEOPLE. Chief P. M. Arthur's real estate In Cleveland Is assessed at $45,650, and Is worth about $86,000, a faci consistent with his generally conservative course In labor disputes. - Lieut Gen.

He commanded the Danish forces on the Island of Olsen, In the Prusso-Danlsh war of 1864. In 1874 he was made mln later of war. ' Stephen Bailey, aged 75, one of the most successful colored men of Mary land, who died recently, was a half brother of Frederick Douglass. Some one, they say, told Thomas Bailey Aldrlch the other day that a cer tain very vigorous Boston bluestocking had called him effeminate. "So I am," he replied, "compared with her." A STRONG APPEAL, John Redmond's Address to the People of Ireland, London, March 8. The Associated Press agent In this city has received from John Redmond his address to the Irish people, which will be published In Dublin tomorrow. It says In part: "A crisis has arisen In the fortunes of our country which makes It Imperative to address you In advice and warning.
