TARTF THE KEYNOTE OF PROSPERITY If Chance Are . Reanlred to Bring Aboat More Industrial Progress They Will Re Made. WASHINGTON, April 20. The senate to day listened to a set speech of almost two hours' duration on the trusts by Mr. Dolll ver and afterward completed consideration of the sundry civil appropriation bill, again outvoting- much time to the provisions for nn extension of the cast front of the cnpttol and for an additional office building for the senate. The office building amendment waa agreed to as reported from the com mittee, but the extension paragraph was so modified as practically to provide for plans only, the appropriation being reduced to 175,000. Mr. Hale, from the committee on appro priations, reported the general deficiency appropriation bill. A bill donating 120 acres of land at Leecher Island, Colo., to mark the site of buttle of a party of fifty scouts and .about l.oiio Indians which occurred In 1868, was passed. Mr.. Dubois introduced and tbe senate passed without comment a resolution In structlng the postmaster general to "ascer tain as far as possible and to report to the senate what, It any, postmasters in Idaho are living In polygamy." Mr. Dolllver then addressed the senate on the trust question. He referred to the attitude of the democratic party toward the tariff, saying that for the first time in our national history since 181 the policy of protection stands approved, lt.a enemies inemseives being the Judges, by the com mon consent of the American people. He defended republican policies from the charge that they fostered trusts, and said: There is onlv one sense In which the tiro tectlve tariff can be held responsible for the trusts, and that Is that without the protective tariff there would have been fewer industries to Combine and, therefore fewer combinations. He declared that the'effect of the aboli tion of the tariff would be to turn our markets and Industries over to other na tions. Dolllver oa Iho Tariff- Mr. Dolllver referred to the president by .name, saying that he wss the . worthy leader of a greater cause and predicting his election to the presidency on a platform that would protect the Interests and con serve the honor of the country. Mr. Dolll ver In Closing said: We approach this presidential campaign united In the bonds of our historic faith. We did not originate it, we Inherited It from our fathers. If changes sre required to bring the tariff law of 1M7 Into a more perfect relation to the Industrial progress of the American people, we propose to make them ourselves, whenever In our ludament the work ran be undertaken without doing more harm than good, but we shall not consent to any change which surrenders tho rights of American labor or the advantage which every man who makes a bona fide Invest ment of his money in the United States ought to have over his competitors In other lands. We look forward with hone to the pro gress of our commerce from the river to the ends of the esrth, but we do not forget that the statistics of our foreign trade have brought the most encouragement to our peODle In those exact cerlods when our own producers have been most perfectly guaraea against injurious approach or tne outside world and that the law of 1897 for the first time In our history has Yielded us a fsvorable balance of our trad In manu factured goods. When , Mr. Dolllver concluded, the con sideration of the sundry civil appropriation bill was resumed, the immediate question being the amendment fur an office and coinlttee building for the senate. Amendments Agreed To. Mr. Stone and Mr. Stewart supported the amendment and Mr. Newlands advo cated a postponment of the entire question until It could be investigated fay archi tects.

Allison offered an amendment; which was adopted. limiting the Immediate appropriation to $78,000. An amendment appropriating 171.000 as the Share of the United States of tbe cost of a building to be erected In Washington for The Bureau of American Republics was adopted. Mr. Bacon offered and the senate accepted an amendment appropriating 130,- 000 for the erection In Washington of a statue of Thomas Jefferson. He said ho desired to have the provision inserted "as an antidote to the provision for the status of Frederick the Great," and he asked to have the provision Inserted Immediately after the paragraph relating to Frederick, which waa done. The sundry civil appropriation bill waa then passed as amended. The bill ratifying the agreement with tbe Crow Indians for the cessation and sale of a portion of their reservation In Montana was passed. The pension appropriation bill was laid before the senate, which then, at 1:30 p. m., adjourned. MEMBERS EXCHANGE COMPLIMENTS Salser In tho Hoase Aeeases Stephens of Grafting. WASHINGTON, April W.
