Chairman Wilson of the committee on ways and menus has Issued a statement in regard to toe tarifl bill, the gist ot which It contained in the following Introductory paragraph: "The Democratio members of the committee have fell aa no others could feel the momentous responsibility resting upon them, and the magnitude of the ditllculty and the delicacy of the duty assigned them, of framing a tariff bill for a nation of 70,000,000 people. In the bill tbey are called on to reform is a vast labyrinthine system of class tax ation, culminating thirty years' control of the taxing poWor by a few interests gathering into their train a host of pet ty toll-gathering. It was carefully framed to prevent aa long aa possible what the author calls 'any monkeying with the tariff,' by which he meant -juy successiui euon ui mu peo ple to eradicate the slnecuiei which Us beueflcianea were permitted Uvwrlce-tuereiu in-thelr own words and own figures. It transferred to the free list the proper aud fruitful revenue of articles where most of the taxes paid by the people were received by the gov ernment, and greatly increased the rates on those articles all or most of the taxes on whloh paid by the people went into private coflora, and it was bolstered about bv many defenses, chief among which are a swept and garnish. ed treasury aud a swollen ana coio&sai scale of permanent expenditures. Such are the conditions that confronted us at the outset of our work. The committee htTd welcomed information and coun f e! from every trustworthy source, and, w.iilethey do not expect their bill to escape Just criticism in all Ita details, they do present it to the country as the result of months of patient, anxious fu. nd of an honest desire to dis charge their duty, purged of all taint of local and personal favoritism or prejuu Ice. Ita main features are twe: First The adoption, wherever It seems practi cable, of ad valorem Instead of speclfled duties. Becond-The freeing from taxes of those great materials of industry that lies at the basis of production." THE SYSTEM PBOPOSKD. The statement continue by saying that the speclfled duties were oojecuuo ttblebecauw tbey can be used to con 0i f.n-rouslv large and Inequitable taxation, aud because iney ieau readily to frauds,as weighers and couu ters at the custom houses are cheaper and more easily corrupted labor than those under the ad valorem system. Moreover the ad valorem system has worked well in practice andlsessen- fair. It defends me wus "B materials on tue grouuu on proaucuu" The thin edge of American manufac tures has entered every country, and with free raw materials there is no limit to the growtb)of our foreign trade with incalculable advantage to labor The statement continues by saylnc that in every great line of manufacture we can produce enough for homo con sumption in six to nine months and we can get rid of our Burplus only by ex port; that trado cannot bo built up so lone as raw materials aro taxed, hence the formations of trusts to keep down the production to the great detriment of labor. The statoment then points out the various Items of reductions In the schedule, including sulphurlo acid, to the free list because of Its general use; castor oil from 85 to 35 cents per gallon; Unseed oil from 35 to 15 cents per gallon; pig lead from 2 cents to 1 per pound, thus reducing the price of paints. It declares the increase of the duty on opium to (12 per pound by the McKlnley bill simply put the business into the hands of the smugglers on the Pacific coast. The present bill put It where It Is thought it can bo collected. The duty on common window glass Is reduced more than half, which will stimulate homo production, because it has been produced under trust condi tions. There is also a marked reduc tion In plate glass. SILVER WILL 11 K ItEAKD. Silver will assert its right to a hear ing in connection with the tariff. It will come In the shape of a proposition to put a duty on silver Importations. In the senate, if the plans of those who have the matter in hand do not mlscar ry, au effort to secure this luuovation will be made in connection with the metal schedule, and it will bo coupled with the item concerning lead and sil ver-lead ores. The purpose of this movement is two-fold. It may prepare the way for the free coiuago of the American product of silver, and it la expected to prevent counterfeiting the A uerlcan dollar In other oountii.'S ai d the sending of counterfeit coins to the United States.

Go vernor Me Ktuley was aske'd his oplulon of the Wilson tariff bill.- He said he had not read the ubstract of tho measure ond bud only glanced through Wilson's re view af It. He bald It wussucu a meas ure as lie nau expeciea, yet a nice more sweeping thau he bad anticipated. It was, however, In line with the ex pressed determination of democracy to ligunre the business Interests and the workiug people of the country. The objectionable feature of the bill was the substitution of ad valorem for specific duties. That alone ought to defeat the entire measure. The ad valorem sys tem, ho says, rests upon foreign valua tion which is bard to deterinluo and It puts a premium upon undervaluation frauds. Chinese Begistration. Washington, Nov. 28. The treas ury department Is somewhat concerned over the prospect of Chinese registra tion under the new law passed upon the eve of an adjournment of the extra session aud uuder which the depart ment has just Issued regulations. Tho supposition is that the Chinese will comply with thelaw.butnoonecan say Tho Oronln Oase. Chicago, Ills., Nov. 28.

Ex-Speaker Tom Reed, of the ways and means o m mlttee, says: "Of course It is very oasy for tho gen llemen who prepared the bill to give their views, since they havo been busi ly engaged lu the wrrk for a number of weeks, while tho first the minority heard of tho bill was at 11 o'clock today.

This may not be true with regard to every item, but it Is certainly truo with regard to tne most Important matters In the bill." The Bill Explained by Breckinridge, of Arkansas. Washington, Nov. 28. Clifton R. Breckinridge of Arkansas, one of tho prominent majority members of tho committee, explained the mln features of tha bill as follews: "Tno revouuo UlfllcuUy, caused by thereooat panto, la temporary ouly, aud It will doubtlfias bo provided for by u temporary oxpedlent. "W cannot generalize on this, but taking matters at a mora normal state, it may bo bo said that we must provide for $50,000,000 or possibly less, lu wayB not expressed lu tho new tariff. This will follow very soon, in ttmo to he In corporated with tho present bill. But as this is not expeoted to bo of a charac ter to materially u fleet manufacture or trade, and as tho people wore extreme ly anxious to know what wo proposed doing in regard to tho tariff, we con oluded to make tho uow bill public as soon aa It was dually oomptotod. To a very great extent wo have substituted ad valorem for epeolfla dutlos. "This seems Ind spnsablo If we are to equalize tho tariffs and the burdens of the people. Many of the Irregulari ties whloh aro corrected are astonish ing. Tho administrative tarl(! laws have fouud,approval far more than was expeoted, aud it Is believed that the few changes proposed are in accord with exporlonco aud will moot with general support. "We have struck out from tho tarlfr all tbosa features that distinguished it as a 'combine' and placed what Is usu- ally known as 'raw materials,' suoh as wool, coal, Iron oro, wood, and the like, on the free list. "A few chomloals are added to tho free list, and tho cruder forms of manu factures, suoh as pig-Iron aud similar articles are greatly reduced f om their prcoiit;tremely bUi duties.

"The present tarlf! rates makotbo most of suoh artlolos oppressive to both the remote and r asonably noar-by lo calities, while a less rato will relieve both people, and as consumption In creases, when extortion Is prevented, tho trado will be m Intilntd, tf,lndeed, It bo not greatly Improved. "With freo raw materials and the tarifl stripped of Its most odious aud oppressive features, wo give to con sumers and producers alike a larger Hold for the employment of labor, bet ter returns aod a more aoutiuant par. tlclpallon In the rewards aud comforts of life." A CALM RBVIhW. At a session of tho city council to night the question of issuing more, bonds will bo settled. There are not many more warrants afloat now than at the beginning of tho year, unless street ImprovemonV warrants are counted. The question whether the Wurrauts outstanding should be funded or uot Is tho vital one to be settled by the couucil. From tho standpoint of economy there Is only way to do, and tha. Is to fund tho warrauts outstanding, draw ing eight per cent. Into six per cent, bonds. Warrants outstanding repre sent expenditures already incurred. It Is Impossible to retronoh on a debt ex cept to got it to drawing a lower rate of Interest and oreato a sinking fund and pay It (iff.
