Washington, I). C, March 8, 1SU4.
- The spectacle of the slow-going,
sedate, spectacular senate taking up
and coming withui a hair's breadth of
passing as important a measure as the
HI ind seigniorage bill, which took the
house three weeks to pass, all in one
day, was an anomaly in legislation, but
such was the fact yesterday. The
celerity with which the bill was carried
through all the stages of consideration,
second and thu d reading, and up to the
point of final passage, completely
dumbfounded such old and wily foxes
as Senators Snerman and Hoar and
the democratic anti-silver contingent.
The way it was done is still a wonder
to these men, who were neatly led into
the trap and caught napping.
The bill, together with a proposed
free coinage amendment by Senator
Stewart, lay on the table. Early in the
morning hour (which means from noon
till two o'clock) Senator Harris pro
poses taking the bill up as unfinished
business to consume some of the time,
he said, until the tariff bill could be
laid before the senate, and to this there
was unanimous consent the opponents
of the tariff bill thinking this a good
chance to further delay action on that
measure. Senator Sherman opposed
immediate consideration by a motion
to refer it to the finance committee,
and an hour's time was taken up argu
ing that motion. Then a vote was
taken, all but six of the anti-silverites
voting against the motion, in hope that
its present discussion would embarrass
the tariff debate. The chairman (Sen
ator Faulkner) then stated that the bill
was open to amendment, and if no
amendments were offered, the question
would be on the third reading of the
bi 1. At this stage Senator Stewart
announced his conclusion not to offer
his amendment. The chairman then
again inquired if any amendments were
to be proposed, and hearingno response
(although it was quite easily guessed
that Senator Hoar had an amendment
prepared which he designed to offer
fcr the sake of delay), he put the ques
tion, "Shall the bill be read a third
time now?" and it was carried, a yea-and-nay
vote not being called for.
This accomplished, and the bill being
put beyond the amendment stage, the
old Massachusetts savant wakened,
arose and inquired what was next in
order,and was startled when the chair- slight raise to correspond is made in
nian announced "The question now is, : various forms of iron products, and
COCGIII.1N NOT OlILTV
shall the bill pass?"' Then the whole
crowd almost went into hysterics and
protested that they had had no oppor
tunity whatever todiscuss the measure.
A ppreciating the fact that the friends
of the bill had the whip-hand of affairs,
and out of sheer pity for the sleepy op
position. Senator Harris allowed Sen
ator Allison to move a re-cousideration
of the vote on a third reading, but gave
notice that after a reasonable amount
of kicking had been done the motion
would re laid on the table and the bill
would be disposed of. The vote will
be taken tomorrow.
Humors have been current for a
month that the president would veto
the bill, but today it is confidently
stated that he will 6ign it if it comes to
For several days the house has I een
discussing the pension appropriation
bill, and the republican members have
exploited a vast deal of political thun
der and gave vent to much pent-up
abuse and vilification of the president
and the democratic policy as to pen
sions and pensioners. The bill pro
posed an appropriation of $157,000,000
less by 1C millions than that of last J
year, and they have charged that this
means that new pension claims will
not be allowed in the future. This
bill was passed yesterday. The fact is,
however, that claims are being passed
upon and certificates issued daily, as of
yore, to my certain knowledge. Judge
Liochran, the commissioner's a veteran
of the war, was a gallant member of
the famous First Minnesota, who arose
from the ranks to the position of lieutenant-colonel,
and is strongly in favor
of gi anting pensions to every deserv
ing soldier. As an honest soldier he
believes in making the pension roll a
roll of honor as far as possible. My
judgment is that the republican clamor
about pensions is sheer demagogy.
The tariff bill, as amended by the
senate sub-committee was reported to
the full committee today and a limited
number of copies were printed and
distributed. I had a chance to inspect
it this evening. There are less changes
proposed than the public generally be
lieved. The chief changes are: that
coal is taken from the free list and a
duty of 40c. a ton imposed; iron
ore is also taxed 40c. and a
sugar is taxed a cent a pound. Here
and there throughout the bill are slight
changes up cr down, the most notable
being a raise fiom 35 to 45 per cent,
on collars and cuffs, presumably to suit
Senator Murphy of Troy, New York.
The California fruit raisers are also
given a sop and the glass schedule is
raised about 5 per rent over the house
bill. The income tax feature is re
tained in the bill. The internal
revenue tax on cigars and cigarettes
weighing over three lbs. per thousand
is raised from .51 to $5. It is con
fidently believed that in its present
share it will receive the unanimous
vote of the democrats and populists in
the senate, and that when it passes
through the conference committee
stage the chief amendments will be
eliminated and the bill will then pass,
substantially as it passed the house.
Mr. Talbott, the clerk of the house
ways and means committee, a very un
assuming gentleman, whom I believe
knows more as to the details and in
tricacies of a tariff than any other man
in America, has been in almost con
stant conference with the senate sub
committee since they took the bill up,
is iu high glee over the bill as reported.
and expressed the belief that the bill
would pass eTentually more to his lik
ing (which is for an enlarged free list
on raw materials) than in its present
senatorial form. He does not fear the
work of a democratic conference com
mittee, and refused to accept a wager
that coal and iron ore will not jet go.
on the free list. He thinks they will.
From a democratic standpoint the
prospects of tariff legislation are bright
ening, c w. s.
The Tecnmseh Journal remarks: In
case Hon. W. J. Brjau does not seek a
renominatieu to congress from thisdis- j
trict, we know of no more able or con
scientious man to continue the good
fight for the people than Col. J. I). Cal
houn, of the Lincoln Herald. He is
able, honest and not afraid to advocate
the cause of the common people as
against Wall street.
A Cincinnati paper is authority for
the statement that Senator Brice's in
come is not less than $300,000 a year,
and probably more. The senator's
reasons for opposing the income tax
thus appear to number exactly 796.000-
My these words, coming from thelips
of twelve of his peers, know all men
that Daniel Coughlin w as in no way con
cerned in the murder of Patrick Cronin
live years ago next May; that he has for
nearly the same period been deprived
of his liberty, unjustly held up to public
obloquy as a murderer without csiuse,
and wantonly forced to spend of his
own and his friends" substance a small
fortune; that the array of witnesses
summoned by the state. at even greater
cost, are perjurers or fools, or both;
that the jury who sat in the former
trial were no better, and that the
state's attorney's otliee of 0k county
is an enuine for persi-cuting an innocent
These conclusions, reached in little
more than three hours by this remarka
ble jury, percolate but siowly through
the public mind. The average citizen,
who has followed the evidence almost
as if he were a juryman, must have
time to take in this momentous deci
sion and readjust his point of view.
Not at once will he accustom his mental
vision to the new focus. lie has, i
seems, been all at sea. The red-handed
murderer is a martyr to malignity and
wrongheadedness; the false detective a
persecuted hero. He did not entice Dr
Cronin to his death or join the orgy of
assassination in the Carlson cottage
Who says assassination and death?
Was Dr. Cronin ever killed? Did he
not,, rather, as the experts dec'ared,
perish of adestroying kidney complaint
and then crawl into the Lake iew
manhole, pulling the cover down over
hisbod? Was there ever euch a man
as Dr. Cronin, anyway? And does the
nicht of May 4, 1SS1, show on the cal
endar? The Clan-na-Gael, camp 20,
the triangle are these realities oronly
the tloating phantasmagoria of adream?
Where are we at?
Of course Mr. Coughlin will be re
stored to his place on the police force.

It is not generally known but it is a
fact, nevertheless, that the legislature
of Nebraska passed a law authorizing
the organization of a state poultry as
sociation and for maintaining which
an annual appropriation of 51,000 is
made. This looks a little queer when
we come to consider the fact that the
raisers of cattle and hogs far out-number
those engaged in poultry raising,
yet are not protected by any special or
class-legislation. Democrats have al
ways opposed class legislation and it
goes without saying that the present
poultry law was not enacted by them.
