The motion was defeated by a sti-i party vote 28 yeas, 38 nays Hill, Irby and Kyle voted against the motion. Gorman spoke on the tariff. He claimed that action had not been un usually delayed. The Wilson bill had been reported before Its effects upon existing Industries could be properly studied. It failed to meet the demands of the treasury department and actual ly increased the deficit created by Re publican prohibitive duties. In answer to the Republicans Gorman asserted that the compromise bill had been con structed on the Democratic theory of tariff for revenue with such Incidental protection as could be given consistent ly to the Industries of the country. It followed .strictly the course marked out. by President Cleveland. In his letter f acceptance. This is not a free trade measure, but a longer step for tree trade than either the Mills bill or tariff act of 1883, and would prove the most advantageous tariff legislation since the Republican party sprung Into existence. Gorman denied that any trust had dictated any part of any schedule. Justice to Louisiana required the retention of the sugar bounty. Gorman deplored the fastening of an income tax '"on the tariff bill, but said he .Jcnew the majority of his Demo cratic colleagues differed from him, and the would vote for the bill. Gorman's speech was the feature of today's session. He and Mr. Brlce have been credited by the opposition with the Joint authorship of the compromise amendments which consolidated the Democratic side, and Mr. Gorman espe cially has been subjected to much criti cism, both in and out of the Bena.te, The speech today was In a measure a reply to the attacks that nave been made upon him, explaining the necessi ty for compromise and defining the theory upon which the modified bill now before the senate, was constructed. It attracted intense Interest, and was regarded as an exceedingly able expo- sltlon of the position of the conserva tives, Mr. Gorman's speech furnished texts for the Republicans for the remainder of the day. His statement that a ma- Jority of the senate would support the bill was put to the test by Teller, whose purpose was to "smoke out" any latent opposition on the Democratic side. Gorman's statement was justified by the vote, as the Colorado senator's mo tion to lay the tariff bill on the table was met by an unbroken Democratic front. Both Senators Hill and Irby, whose positions have been the subject of gossip from time to time, voted with their Democratic associates, as. did three Popujlsts, including Peffer. The following resolution was Intro duced by Senator Kyle: "Resolved, That it is the sense of the senate that the United States shall not use for the purpose of restoring to the throne the deposed queen of the Sand wich Islands, or for the purpose of de- troylng the existing government; that the provisional government having been duly recognized, the highest interna tional Interests require that It shall pur sue lis own line of policy; that inter vention In the political affairs of these Islands by other governments will be regarded a an act unfriendly to the yesterday, the next paragraph provid Ing for the transfer to the civil ser vice commission of clerks from the de partments was stricken out of the bill today. The house refused to strike out the appropriation of $40,000 for the trav eling expenses of civil service examin ers. Another amendment, to'.-the bill gives the secretary of the treasury dis cretion In the temporary appointment of clerks to wind up the account of di visions proposed to be abolished, in stead of taking them from the classified service.

Representatives Davies and Taubneck have mndo a careful estimate of ttieltterent bands of Coxeyltes on their way to Washing ton, and claim that there are 5,000 men tramping or riding on boats and bor rowed trains toward the capltol. Du vies does not believe In the wisdom and efficacy of the Coxey movement and has written a magazine article In which he points out that the movement Is the result of currency contraction, and summarizes It as "Organized Want." If the government should .yield to Coxey's demands, other armies' would march on the capltol with other do manda, and the result would be a gov eminent by the multl, .. The remedy for the present state V. business he finds In the ballot which ho defines as a recorded opinion. "No Coxeyltes have come from Kan gas," he said, "because Kansas has ex pressed herself properly by her elec tions, and Nebraska, which Is largely a Populist state, has contributed not more than 7S men." j "By Imprisoning the vleaders," he says, "the authorities have mado swan out of geese. " The chief danger, he thinks, will develop next fall, when the weather becomes too cold for the men to camp out of doors. Then he looks for trouble. UNITED PRESBYTERIANS.
