Such Is the Prediction ot Sen
ator Aldrich.
Senators Cummins and Bailey Confi
dent Compromise Amendment Will
Carry Hides, Coal and Petroleum
Aro Giving Finance Committee
Much Concern Question of Maxi
mum and Minimum Rates.
Washington, Juno 14. No set ovout
of the present weok may bo anticipat
ed with keonur nows relish than tho
vote which may bo taken In tho sen
ato Friday on tho income tax amend
Incut b to tho tariff bill. Second only
to tho adoption or tho rejection of this
important tnx featuro of tho ponding
legislation will bo tho interest in tho
alignment of Bonntors, with tho Re
publican regulars on tho ono hand, op
posed by tho Democrats and n doubt
ful numbor of "Insurgent"' Republic
ans. Senators Balloy and Cummins,
roproscntlng respectively tho Demo
crats and such Itepubllcnns as aro
determined upon an income tax, ap
pear confident that their compromlso
amendment will bo adopted.
Nearing Vote on Tariff Dill.
Tho reeling in nil factions In tho
Ecnnto is that tho tariff bill Ib ap
proaching tho last days of its consid
eration by tho sonato. Senator Aid
rich's prediction that the end may bo
reached by next Saturday was re
ceived wjth favor by tho Republicans,
out the "progressive Republicans" aro
not quite so optimistic.
With tho excoption of ono disputed
point In tho silk schedule, tho senato
haB concluded Kb second considera
tion of the bill and disposed of hll par
agraphs of the schedules on whjch tho
committee had reported. Among tho
questions not acted upon In commit
too woro many disputod points.
Rough lumber remains on tho dutln
bio list, but tho question of the amount
of duty and tho dlfforontlnl between
tho duty on rough lumbor and on tho
manufactured nrtiolo romalns to bo
settled. In tho pnpor Bchedulo tho
principal items to bo considered aro
the duty on ground wood nnd print pa
per. Hides, Coal and Petroleum.
Hides, coal and potioloum arc giv
ing the finance committee no little
concern, but the present indications
nro that tho senato will place a duty
on all of theseZinc ore and zinc paint
products are Btlll to bo considered, as
aro sulphate of ammonia and barytes.
Tho outcome js uncertain.
There Ib a domand for n reduction
nnd a reclassification of tho window
glass schedule, but any prediction as
to what tho result might bo would' bo
misleading. The same may be said of
tho contest, between pig iron and
scrap Iron in the metal schedule. The
Bouthcrn senators aro making an earn
est effort to have cotton tics and cot
ton bagging mado free of duty and
the binding twlno provision has been
lielrt up until tho cotton do question
could bo decided, probably on tho the
ory that the northwestern senators
could be prevailed upon to combine
with tho southern senators in tho in
terest of tho two articles together. Tho
leather schodulo is suspended, await
ing tho decision on hides.
It 1b uncertain as to how much de
bate tho flnanco committee's decision
re'lntlng to maximum and minimum
rates will provoke, but it Is oxpected
that It will bo thoroughly elucidated
beforo it finally receives approval.

changed my opinion of tho natlvo con
stabulary nor my belief In tho gen
eral excellency nnd loyalty of tho
force Judgment must bo reserved un
til wo receive further details of tho
mutiny nnd tho causes that brought
11 about."
No addltlcnnl details of the mutiny
and of the three hours' fight mado by
Governor Walker and' tho Americans
Intho church at Davno have been re

of any extensive military plans asldo
from tho ordering of several detach
ments to follow tho mutineers.

nnd for this renson cannot normnlly
nmko n descent of more than 100 feet.
'The Kambala went down In 150 feet
of water, nnd only untrustworthy bulk
heads stood between tho men nnd
death after tho boat was struck by the
Rostlslav's ram.
The disaster occurred flvo miles
from Sebastopol. Four men wore
anvod, Including tho commander, Lieu
tenant Aquilonoff, who was giving or
ders through tho speaking tubo to the
helmsmen Just bofore the collision.
These ordors, he says, was misinter
preted, the helm being put to port In
stead of starboard.
