The bill providing free homesteads
on public lands In Oklahoma territory
for actual and bonaflde settlers and re
serving ine puoic lands for that pur
pose was made a special order, to fol
low the Immigration bill.
The calender was taken up, the first
bill being one appropriating 860,000
to the representatives of Ersklne S.
Allen, for an Invention In breach-loading
guns. The bill-was passed.
At this point Allen made an unex
pected move by proposing to take up
the Dingley tariff bill, with Its pend
ing rreo saver substitute. Allen first
asked unanimous consent that the bill
be taken up, -and on Aldrlch'a objec
tion, Allen moved to take up the bill.
There was much commotion at the
unexpected appearance of the ques
tion, and pages hurried for the leaders
of the various elements. Piatt gained
time by having the bill read in full.
After a whispered conference between
Piatt and Aldrlch, the latter with
drew his objection to taking up the
"I renew It and object," Interposed
"Then I move to take up the bill."
said Allen, with emphasis.
This precipitated a roll-call, the
question being, shall the Dingley
tariff bill, wlth.Its silver substitute,
be taken up? The roll-call proceeded,
amid the closest attention and Inter
est. It resulted as follows:
A yes Republican Aldrlch. Cam
cron, Chandler, Clarke, Davis, Elkins,"
Jirye, uamngcr, ueaffruiue, uans

Mitchell of Orecon, Morrill, Nelson,

The announcement of the vote was
no less a surprise .than Allen's first
Aldrlch quickly interposed a motion
to refer the hill to the committee on
finance, with instructions to report
back the bill without the free-silver
amendment. This brought Allen to
Ills feet in an energetic protest. lie
said the Republican party had pre
vailed at the recent election, anfJ was
now looking forward to effecting tariff
legislation. Throughout the camp
alen they had promised the people
tariff legislation. Why, therefore,
should they hesitate now? The Nebc
raska senator declared that the sena
tors across the aisle did not want toi
take up the tariff question at all.
Chandler responded,suggcstlng that
the recent election hadf not only
brought forward the tariff question,
but had retired the silver question, so
far as independent action by the uni
ted States alone was concerned. He
asked, therefore, whether Allen was
really in good faith to take up the
Dingley bill and free it from the silver
Allen replied that the silver ques
tloh was far from settled by the recent
election. Six million votes had been
registered for Bllver. So far as the
tariff wa concerned, ho wanted the
Republicans to "get into the saddle."
Allen declared the Rcpublcans
had abandtned the Dingley bill.
"Nothing of the klnp," remarked
"It Is 0 announced In Repbllcan
newspapers today," said Allen
"Let me ask the senator,' Inter
posed Chandler, "If he Is so anxious
about tariff legislation. wlllhe aid to
rid this bill of the sliver amendment,
so that the original tariff measure
can be acted upon."
' I will act in my own way," re
sponded Allen, without bowingray
neck to the Republican yoke.',
Harris moved a change of the Al
drlch motion, so as to refer the bill
back without Isntructlons, which was
aCAt? this point the morning hour,
which lasts until 2 o'clock, expired,
and the heated controversy went over.
This leaves pending the motion to re
turn the Diugley bill to the finance
committee, but the motion has no
prlvllige giving it preference tomor
