Listlessness Marks End of
Debate on the Tariff.
CUMMINS DENOUNCES BILL
tow* Senator Says the Measure Does
Not Come Up to His Idea of Tar
iff Reform and Is Not a Fair and
Reasonable Performance of the
Promise Made in the Platform of
Hie Last Republican Convention.
Washington, Aug. 5.—General llst
lewmess marked the final hours of de
bate on the conference report on the
tariff bill In the senate. The majority
of the members appeared to be merely
waiting for the end.
Senator Cummins of Iowa discussed
the paragraphs of the tariff bill gener
ally, not presenting his objections in
detail. He sought to establish his
contention that no substantial tariff
reform is accomplished by the changes
the bill makes.
Mr. Cuniniins announced his deter-.
ininntlnn to vote against the bill, i
though ho confessed the belief that it
was superior to any bill framed for I
revenue purposes and, so far as the
schedules go, better than the Dingloy
"I am opposed to the conference re
port and to the bill which it embodies
because it is not such a revision of
the tariff as I have expended the best
years of my life in fighting for and
is not a fair and reasonable perform
ance of the promise of our platform,"
he said, and added:
"This is not a court of bankruptcy
and I am not willing to accept 10
cents on the dollar in discharge of the
obligations of the Republican party.
It always has been and is now a
solvent organization and it is not only

Why pay $75 to $90 per acre for land when you can
buy land that produces from 35 to 50 bus. of wheat,
Oats 75 to 150 bus., Flax 20 to 30 bus. per acre for
$15 and upward.
Just a few facts why this land is so productive.
The soil is a live, rich, alluvial clay, of very great
depth, ranging from 6 to 20 feet. We have then a
soil, which by nature, is fitted to take up the moist
ure of rains and snow and retain it.

Stockholm, Aug. 5.—The labor con

acute. While the ranks of the strik
ers are considerably swelled the gen
eral strike called has not yet be
come entirely effective. Many organ
izations, although sympathising with
the strikers, hesitate to join them
actively. The employes of the street
cat lines and the cab drivers have
stopped work and neither cabs nor
street cars are available. The fact
that, the troops are protecting the gas
works and the electric lighting plant
has incensed the workmen, whose
leaders threaten to call out all the
men unless the soldiers are with
drawn. The printers' union held a
meeting, but resolved to postpone for
the present any decision in the mat
ter of going on strike.
A corps of workmen, some thousand
strong, ie being organized with the
object of maintaining order and th'
people generally, bankers, merchants,
etc., are arming themselves for self
protection. The gun Bhops of the
city are practically denuded of re
