WJIBIIIXOTOX , Jan. 21. The house today
determined the abolition of the duty upon
refined sugar , which was passed upon just
before the house adjourned last night as an
amendment to an amendment of Air. Robert
son of Louisiana. A way out of the confusion
which existed upon the effect of the amend
ment adopted lust night was found after a
two hours' discussion of the parliamentary
situation , by submitting the question to the
house , as to whether the Warner amend
ment placing rellncd sugar on the free list ,
should be considered as a substitute for the
Robertson amendment. This was decided
nfllrmatlvely , and then , by an overwhelming
vote , In which the republicans joined with
the radical democrats against the sugar men
nnd several memoers ot the ways and moans
committee , the substitute was adopted.
\Vlth regard to the sugar schedule , there
fore , the committee of the whole has
abolished the bounty and placed all sugar ,
both refined and raw , upon the frco list.
Vigorous l'rotc t from Southcrneri * .
When It came to consider the coal schedule
toJny , however , the committee fared much
batter , and all four of the amendments , de
signed to place a duty of from -10 to 70 cents
per ton upon coal , were beaten. The debate
on the ctfal schedule developed a great deal
of fcclinc among the southern members , es
pecially thosn from Virginia , West Virginia ,
Tennessee and Alabama , whoso states are in
terested either In coal or iron ore. The general
oral impression is that the defeat of the
sugar men and of those who are interested
in retaining a duty upon coal will result in
strengthening the movement developed on
the democratic sldo to recommit the bill. If
the iron men are defeated tomorrow , and
especially if the ir.como tax should bo placed
upon tlio bill as a rider later In the week ,
another stronc faction on the democratic
side will ba added to this movement. The
republicans will also vote for the motion to
recommit , and the republicans who dare not
-voto on the . bill outright.bjtwbonra not
satisfied .with it in 'its' in-osaut form may
end It back to the committee. This is now
admitted to bo the chief danger. If the bill
could be brought to a direct vote thcro is no
question about its passage. *
JtofrrrtMt to n Committee.
At the opening of the house this morning ,
on motion of Air. "Wise , the president's veto
of the New York and Now.Jcrsoy bridge bill
was referred to ho committee on interstate
and foreign commerce.
A few minutes later , when the house went
Into committee of the whole to resume the
consideration of the tariff bill , Air. Oates of
Alabama called attention to tne peculiar
complication that had arisen owing
to the failure of the committee
to complete the consideration of the sugar
schedule. It came over as unfinished busi-
r.css , while by the special arrangement last
Saturday today was sot aside for
the coal aud iron Ecnodulcs. Some
discussion followed us to the
parliamentary status , and It was
llnally decided by unanimous consent to go
ahead with the vote on the sugar schedule ,
nnd after that was disposed of to take up
coafand iron.
The pond in ; ; question was the Robertson
amendment Imposing a duty on raw sugar
nnd Increasing tlm duty on rellned sugar as
amended by Air.Vurncr , placing both raw
and refined stigur on thofrcojist.
The conf tinlcii entailed by thcso two Incon
gruous amendments had lirst to bo straight
ened out. Air. Dlugley claimed that the
Warner amendment was utterly inconsistent
with the Robertson amendment and should
bo considered as a substitute ,
Air. Robertson took issuu with him , main
taining that the effect of Air. Warner's
amendment simply was to place refined
ugar on the free list , leaving so much of his
amendment as imposed a duty upon sugar
below 10 Dutch standard unaffected.
Finally the Warner amendment , as a
substitute ] to place all raw sugar and re-
llncd sugar on the frco list , was carried
101 to'US.
Tallied for un Hour nnd n Half.
The debate on the point of order consumed
over an hour and a half. . The chairman
llnally stated that the Warner amendment
was voted upon as an amendment to thu Rob
ertson amendment. Ho was now nskcd , ho
aid , to decide that it should have been
. voted upon as a substitute. Ho declined to
rule and submitted the question to the house
to determine whether it should bo considered
n substitute or nmcndmcnt. Without divi
sion it was decided to treat the Warner
amendment us a substitute , The committee '
was then called upon to vote upon it as n
substitute , its effect if adopted being to
place all sugars , raw anil refined , on thu frco
list. The great mass of democrats nnd
practically all the republicans voted for the
proposition , only n handful of democrats , in
cluding Mr. Wilson and several others of the
ways and means committee , Mr. ISvcrotts ,
Combs and the members of the Louisiana
delegation voting uculnst It. It was carried
by \otoof 101 loW.
The coal schedule was then taken up. The
first amendment was made by Air. Oates of
Aiabanm , as follows : "Stviko out of the free
list frco coal , etc. , and Insert coal , bitum
inous and shnlo , 40 cents per ton of twenty-
night bushels , eighty pounds to the bushel ;
coal , slack or culls , such ns will pass through
a half Inch screen , 20 cents per ton of
twenty-eight bushels , eighty pounds , to the
bushel. "
Air , Wise of Virginia followed with nn
nimmdmont to the amendment , striking nut
40 cents and Inserting CO cents. Air , AlcKulg
of Aluryland then offered a substitute pro
viding for a duty of 75 cents per ton on
bituminous coal , 30 cents on coal , slack or
culls , nnd striking bituminous co/il from the
free list ,
llltt'a .YmctiilmaiU.
Mr. Hilt of Illinois offered an amend
ment to the substitute as follows : "Insert
ut the end of coal paragraph , provided that
If any article ou the frco list in imported ,
the product of any country \\hlch imposes a
duty on said article exported from the
t'nltcd States , then there shall bo levied ,
collected nnd paid upon said Imported arti
de the rale of duty existing prior to the pas
sage of this act.1'
Mr , WiUon made thu point ot order that
Mr , Hilt's reciprocity nniendmcut was not
&t Rcrmnno nnd , therefore , not In order , It
CA. was n proposition for general reciprocity ou
* the whole turlfT bill , or rather rcttaltallon
upon ourselves for the follies of other piople.
The chair sustained iho point of order and
Air. Hill modified the amendment so m to
restrict it to articles on the frco list.
Mr lurro\T& , republican , of Michigan
made the point that , as modified , the amend.
meat was not germane , and the chair also
sustained the point of order.

crats bad ROIIO , bu : hu was glad to sco so
many democrats on the other side appealing
for protection to their Interests.
Mr. CSrosvcnor , republican , of Ohio said
his stuto was third in the production of coal ,
and that his district produced three-eighths
of ihe production of slate. I'Yco ' coal meant
thn destruction of the coal Industry of Ohio.

Mr. Hicks , republican , of Pennsylvania
said his state stood at the bead of the coal
producing states. It produced last year
over 100,000,000 tons. Many people were
dependent unon it for support , numbering at
least JtOO.OOO. while another t , 000,000 were
inulrocai.v affected. Fifty per ccntoftlio
freight of the state was coal transpot tatlon.
Mr. Walker , republican , of Massachusetts
declared that Massachusetts would vote for
a duty of 75 cents on coal , nothing less ,
nothing more.

proposition in the pending bill.

cents instead of 40. It was lost without a

WASHINGTON , Jan. 23. In the senate today
Mr. Turplo , democrat , of Indiana , from the
foreign relations committee , reported favor
ably the following :
ItPMilvcd , Tliat from some of the facts and
papers laid before the sotmto It Is unwise and
Inexpedient to consider at tills tlmo any pro
ject of anni'xatlon of Ilio Hawaiian Islands to
the I'liltod States ; that the provisional gov
ernment there , having boon duty rccoRiil/od ,
the blithest International Interest requires It
shall imr.suu Its own line of policy , and foreign
Intervention In thoipolltical affairs of thuso
Islands would bo regarded as an act unfriendly
to thu government of thu United States.
Senator Turplo asked Immediate consider
ation of the resolution.
Sonntor Teller Objected.
Senator Teller objected vigorously and
the resolution wont over under the rules.
A bill for an American commission at the
Antwerp , Belgium , international exposition
was presented by Senator Alandcrson , repub
lican , of Nebraska.
Senator Pcffer's resolution , denying the
authority of the secretary of the treasury to
Issue the bonds now.contcmplated vas taken
up and Senator Stewart took the lloor
favoring the resolution. When Senator
Stewart concluded the bill repealing the
federal elections law was taken up.
Senator Wilson , republican , of Iowa ad
dressed the senate in opposition to the bill.
At the end of Mr. Wilson's remarks , Sena
tor Culloin asked consent to take up the reso
lution of Senator Fryc declaring against in
terference In Hawaiian affairs. Senator
Chandler of the republican side was quito
willing to extend the tlmo to
Senator Cullom for that purpose
and allow the elections bill to BO
over. "In fact , " said he , " 1 will make even
a broader proposition. I will suggest the
bill repealing the elections law bo allowed
to go over until the 1st of December next , in
the absence of any recommendation by the
president of the United States that this bill
should pass. I infer the president of the
United States would bo very willing to let
thcso laws remain on the statute books and
bo tested at another election. Therefore , I
suggest to tbo senate that the bill bo al
lowed to go over until the first Alonday of
December. "
Senator Gray , however , objected , and Sen
ator Chandler then yielded to Senator Cul
lom. The elections bill being temporarily
laid aside , the Illinois senator spoke on Air.
Frye's Hawaiian resolution of noninterfer
Cllllom's Severn Criticism.
In his opening remarks Senator Cullom
reviewed briefly the history of Hawaii and
the incidents which led to the revolution of
last year , occasioned , ho asserted , by the
queen when she attempted , to revoke the
constitution of 18S7. He spoke In sharp
terms of this action and then directly at
tacked , the policy , of the. administration.
Abundant testimony , he said , had been fur
nished upon every hand in controvcrsion of
the assumed theory of the president and the
secretary of state and the reported declara
tion of Minister Willis that the revolution
was primarily incited and fostered by United
States Alinister Stevens and by Captain
Wlltze , who was in command of the Boston.
That theory had been completely disprovbn ,
not only by the combination of circumstan
tial and corroborative evidence , but by di
rect and conclusive testimony. This testi
mony bad boon accepted by the mass of the
American people as ample and sufficient ,
and it would'oe an imposition upon the pa
tience of the scnat'n as well as upon the pub
lic to present , it again on this occasion.
"But suppose the Americans had ( which I
deny ) committed the acts alleged , what
difference would that make us regards Air.
Cleveland's act in attempting to rccrovvn
Airs. Donilnis ? Air. Cleveland found there
an established covornmont you may call it
what you will , but it still is a government
in possession and in operation. Where did
the president of the United States find
precedent or authority for the most singular
action which we have scon.
ltliindur.4 of F.ilHinlll.-ui Diplomacy.
"Passing by some of the intermediate
steps taken by the United States govern
ment , such as the withdrawal of the pending
ing treaty from the senate , the sending of a
special commissioner us a dotcctivo to act us
a spy upon a foreign government without
the advice and consent of the senate then in
session , and other equally ridiculous blun
ders of Falstaftlan diplomacy , wo have found
a trovornment In Hawaii recognized by the
world in full control of affairs. Acting
um or instructions this American spy per
formed his duty by frequent secret reports
to the secretary of the state as to what he
found and what ho did. which included the
singular Incident of pulling down the Ameri
can flag.
"A distinguished American issued the order -
dor : 'If any man pull down the American
flag shoot him on the spot.1 At a later
Oay , by the order if I mistake" not of Gen
eral Butler at Now Orleans , ono man
wis shot for the same act for which another
now receives the thanks of the executive of
the United States.
' Another event in revolutionary history
has a certain parallel to the story of the
president's detective in Hawaii. Some
thing over 100 years ago a British ofllccr of
undoubted character and reputation uns
selected as the special commissioner of hh
government to act the part of what would
complete the betrayal of West Point and
other American forts Into the hands of the
British. Major Andre , the distinguished
spy , was apprehended , and paid the penalty
with his life.
' 'Whatever may bo said of deserting our
flag In Honolulu that was only humiliating
to Americans and a self-Indicting disgrace
to this administration. But the sending of
an American spy into Hawaii with creden
tials to thu head of the recognized govern
ment addressed : "Aly great and good
friend , " for the simple purpose of plotting
and ncgotlalliiK with Mrs. Dominls , then an
enemy of tlio government , and secretly and
stealthily endeavoring to arrange for her re-
enthronement upon the ruins of the temporary
ary or provisional government , wns such an

ment would have been fully Justified , under

"Tbo ridiculous mantle ot secrecy which
had hidden for months the actions of the
executive has been removed. The patchwork
policy is fully revealed , flow now appears
that sham and shoddy management which ,
according to the public press , marshaled the
subordinate employes of the state in the
halls of the state building and administered
to the charwomen , messengers , laborers and
clerks n monstrous oath that they should

i'r.ns'AMiift'o , .Ian. 2J. : A dispatch from
the Associated press" correspondent at Hio
da Janeiro says : There have been rumors
that the United States was to bo asked to
arbitrate the mailers In dispute between
the government of President Pcixoto and
the commanders of the insurgent forces.
But thcso reports were denied.
It is understood that feelers have been
sent out by the government of President
Polxoto and that the reply to these feelers
was that the United States officers were not
in a position to arbitrate any dispute so long
as only one of the parties directly inter
ested Intimated that It was oivctrto concilia
tion under the advice of a third party.
Today , however , the Associated Press cor
respondent lu Hio was Informed upon good
authority that Admiral do Oaina , the rebel
admiral in command of the insurgent licet ,
has made a rcuucst to Admiral Bcnrmm , the
American admiral , asking that the latter
would bo kina enough to act as mediator
between the Insurgents and the government
of Peixoto with the view of bringing
about sc mo understanding.
The Associated pi-ess correspondent has
been unaUlu to sco Admiral licnham and ob
tain a continuation or denial of this report ,
but It may bo safely bald that thcro is little
or no doubt of its truth.
When the news that Admiral do Gama
was communicating with Admiral Benhain
reached this shore the greatest satisfaction
was expressed by everybody at the prospect
of an ending to the wearisome civil war
which has been clogging the wheels of busi
ness for months past.
Nobody seems to doubt that the admiral
will soon be able to patch up a peace , but
both sides , all admit , are heartily tired of
the distressing bombardment and attacks
and counter attacits which have been going
on for so long with little or no advantage to
either side.

LONDON. Jan. 23. The Times tomorrow
will publish the following cable dispatch ,
dated Hio do Janeiro , January 20 , via Alontc-
vi'.lco :
Since the arrival of the Aquldaban , the in
surgents have been gaining ground steadily.
They appear to bo more confident and public
opinion asliore is becoming more favorable
to the revolution. The people condemn se
verely the action of the government in not
adopting decisive measures.
On the morning of the 10th the rebels at
tacked Alccungua islands. While the
Aquldaban inado preparations to advance ,
she kept up a heavy lire % vith the niuehilic
and.onick.Hriag uns. until half pastBolclock.
Then at 4 o'clock tho-irisurgou't launches"
advanced , covering the landing of three
parties of twenty-seven men , each with n
reserve of tnirty-elght men , who were
placed on Mocangua islands.
J'he insurgents landed just at daybreak ;
and1at once charged the government bat
tery , capturing its Krifpp field pieces , one
heavy Whltworth and a large
supply of ammunition. The insur
gents then turned the battery
against the government troops stationed
at Alorro d' ' Armacao and Punta Arcia. A
sharp hand-to-hand light took place on the
island and was maintained for half an hour.
At the expiration of this time the govern
ment troops sin-rendered. The total loss to
the government on Mocangua islands was
as follows : The commanding officer and ten
men killed , fifteen men wounded and three
ofllccrs and 100 men taken prisoners. The
government loss on tlio mainland is un
known. The rebels lost five men. iloth
sides showed pluck , but the determined rush
of the sailors overcame all resistance.
Advices from Desterro say the insurgent : *
have occupied the town of Paranagua. After
two hours sharp lighting the garrison sur
rendered , the creator part agreeing to join
the revolution. The insurgent ! ! captured a
largo supply of rifles and ammunition , six
Krupp Held pieces and 20,000 rounds of am
munition. General Lima , commanding troops
nt Paranagua , together with the governor of
that state , fled to Sao Paulo.
The government's now warships are
still at Poruambuco. The man-of-war
Tlradentcs and the Bahla remain at
Montevideo. The government continues
to arrest many persons on suspicion
of their sympathy with the revolution. It
also keo-.s ; on sending strong reinforcements
to Mutheroy , where the garrison now
amounts to about 1,500 men.
The insurgents report they have received
notice of the consignment of 5,000 rifles ,
2,000,000 cartridges , forty-eight Krupp guns
and a large supply of ammunition for their
There is no confirmation of the report
that tlio presence of live warships in this
harbor is duo to tlio proposal by the United
States to Interfere in the present quarrel.
No such proposal has as yet been made
cither to the government or Insurgents.
