THE TARIFF BILL.
Merits of the Measure Discussed by the
On the 13th Mr. PelTer concluded his long
tariff speech in the senate making It clear
what the attitude of one of the populists Is. He
will not vote for the tariff bill as It now stands,
notwithstanding It contains the income
tax provision. His chief objection Is to
the provisions of the revised Wilson
bill as to wool and sugar. Mr. Peffer
thinks that the sugar-beet Industry
of his section should be pro
tected, if the refiners are to be protected, and
he cannot understand why wool should be made
free and duties be retained on woolen manu
factures. There are a great many who share
Mr. Peffer's views. Mr. Allen, another popu
list, has privately Indicated that he would be
compelled to vote against the bill for the rca
sous indicated by Mr. Peffer. Mr. Peffer, In
fact, maintains that the pending bill discrimi
nates against the farming Interests.
On the 14th Senator Quay (rep.. Pa.) said
that it had been hoped, and with apparent rea
son for the hope, that when this bill entered
the senate It would be broadened out of Its sec
tionalism, divorced from Its narrow partisan
ship, and from the mysterious recesses of the
retort of the so-called subcommittees of the
superheated furnace of a party caucus and
from the seething caldron of the full responsi
ble majority of the committee on finance It
would at last emerge purified of its dross and
so freed from all defects and dangers an to
stand before us a measure which could be
adopted with practical unanimity, because It
would give the business Interests of this coun
try tranquillity by taking for at least an appre
ciable period the tariff out of politics.
The senator said that that would be an ideal
solution of this great question, which would In
augurate an era of peace and herald the turn
Of prolonged prosperity. He said that these In
ternecine raids upon domestic industries,
which were so closely associated with political
changes, have cost this country more than all
the military wars for which every generation
since the revolution has paid so dearly. He
characterized the measure as sectional, parti
san, bluudering. discriminating and unjust; the
inevitable result the paralysis of business,
the halting of trade, the suspension of pur
chases, the stoppage of production, the depriva
tion to thousands of their usual means of
livelihood and an incredible shrinkage of valuew
"The McKinley act," he said, "was not a
principle; it was an experimental application
of a theory. The McKinley bill was designed
as an exemplification of the republican 1 de a o
what fostering encouragement was due to
American capital and American labor. It was
not perfect nor considered by Its authors to te
perfect." Mr. Quay continued at length, re
viewing the history of tariff legislation in the
country and showing the effects of high tariffs
and low tariffs on the Industries of the country.
He spoke with emphasis on the ruin which the
passage of the Wilson bill would bring to the
industries of his state.
On the 17th Senator McLaurln, of Missis
sippi, made his maiden speech in the senate,
supporting the tariff bill. Senator Smith, of
New Jersey, followed In a speech devoted en
tirely to an attack on the Income tax. Ho
touched upon the charge of treason by Minne
sota democrats, when he said: "Party ties
grow weak when they make disregard of one's
own convictions and disloyalty to one's own
people the test of fealty. And I do not hesitate
to add that even the misrule of the republican
party is to be preferred to the communism of
the populists and socialists. If that be treason
then self-appointed censors of Minnesota do
right to lay the charge at my door."
On the lath Senator Morrill (rep., Vt) ex
pressed his regret that the financial and Indus
trial crisis had to be continued by a vainglori
ous and clumsy attempt to carry out the demo
cratic platform. He made some rather biting
references to the trouble in which the demo
crats found themselves over the bill, and pointed
out some of the items in which he thought they
bud compromised with their principles and
provided for a protective tariff on such articles
as would win votes for the bill.
"Concerning the rates of duties reported la
the tariff bill, " he said, "It Is no violation of
the confidential relations of the senate commit
tee on finance to state how they were all fixed
and determined without the votes of the repub
lican members and against even the voles of
any hesitating or divergent minority of the
democratic members. It us many of the most
Important questions may have been determined
by the small fraction of three or four of a com
mittee of eleven. Hut while the process of
evolution was a great novelty It will not be con
troverted that all the rates of duty are of the
purest democratic origin. Tariffs "for revenue
only' prove to be only political tariffs, valid
only after the next election."
He pointed out in detail what he considered
the special evils of the bill, the first teing the
obsolete ad valorem system. The purpose of
toe bill, he thought, was especially destructive
toward the production of the farmer. Reci
procity arrangements which benefit the farmer
are to be abrogated. The income tax be called
an unusual blunder for even a democratic ad
ministration to make.
Senator Turpie (dim, Ind.) spoke in support
of the tariff bill. He discussed the effect of a
high tariff bill on the agricultural Interests, In
troducing the topic by the assertion that agri
culture was America's natural monopoly from
the cheapness of the land, and it was from
those engaged in agriculture that the demand
for the repeal of the existing law was
loudest "The opponents of the pending
bill opposed the .putting of wool oo
the free list on the plea that It would
check the development of high grades of
sheep, but prefer that the people of the
country should have cheap blankets and cheap
clothing than that they should have fine South
down mutton to eat It is not to be forgotten
that tbe bill now before the senate Is the official
act and deed of the democratic party, and as
such Is entitled to the support of every mem
ber of the party. Justice may be delayed, baf
fled, even betrayed and wounded by the way,
but it will arrive at last"
Senator Cameron (rep., Pa.) took the floor la
opposition to the bllL Following Senator Cam
eron, his colleague. Senator Quay, delivered a
second Installment of his speech, discussing
the production of iron.
On the 19th Senator Perkins (rep., CaL) made
a speech against the pending tariff bill, mainly
devoted to a discussion of the articles which
directly affected California wool, fruits, quick
silver, beet sugar, etc., although he considered
other features In the bill la which his state was
not interested, but which were opposed to re
publican principles and which he accordingly

RUMORS OF A FIGHT.
Unconfirmed Report of the Killing of SIX
Members of the Daltoa. Gang.
Pzrky, O. T., April 21. A dust-cov-ored
and worn out courier arrived here
Thursday with the report that a battle
to the death had occurred between
United States marshals and six mem
bers of the famous Dalton gang, headed
by Bill Dalton. The fight is reported to
have taken place 68 miles southeast of
here near a town called Ingalls, near
the line dividing the Creek Indian 'res
ervation from Oklahoma. Bill Dalton,
Bill Doolan, "Bitter Creek Kid,"
"Three-Finger Jack" Boon, and two
unknown allies constituted the out
lawed gang and a posse of eight
United States deputy marshals were
the opposing parties.
Kansas City, Ma, April 21. The
Associated Press is unable to verify the
story of a fight between United States
deputy marshals and the so-called Dal
ton gang of outlaws. The following
was received from Perry:
"Basing his opinion upon reports as they
come in the sheriff of this county says there
Is not a word of truth in the report of a fight
with the Daltons."
Wichita, Kan., April 2L The story
of a fight with Daltons is discredited
here and in Oklahoma. A fight did
occur Tuesday morning, when a body
of men supposed to be vigilantes
surrounded the ranch of Bruce
Miller in the Creek country, some
20 miles northwest of Stillwater,
Oklahoma, and when A. L. Miller,
his brother Bruce and a hired hand
named Dutch Jim appeared in answer
to their summons all three were fired
at Dutch Jim was killed and the
others wounded. A ball which entered
the house also wounded a little child.
The Millers quickly reentered the
house and for two days they were
besieged by the alleged vigilauts.
The inmates finally managed to
escape under cover of darkness Wednes
day night and the invaders Thursday
morning burned down all the ranch
buildings and destroyed all the proper
ty they could find. The Millers are
said to be bad characters and to have
been ordered to leave the country.
Both are dangerously wounded.

St. Pall, Minn., April 21. The indi

to President J. J. Hill, ask
ing for a conference between Mr.
Hill and a committee representing the

that he would meet the committee Sat
urday. This is regarded as favorable
to a termination of the fight Reports
from all along the line say that every
thing is quiet with the exception of SU

No injunctions have as yet been filed j
with Lnited States courts in Montana
or Washington. It is the company's
policy to get the complications clear at
this end of the line first and then to
advance with no trouble to fear
in the rear. As soon as the
road is clear through Xorth Dakota !
an injunction will be filed in Mon-
tana, and the toughest part of the !
contest will probably begin. In the j
majority of instances all local Great '
Northern employes seen expressed j
themselves as willing to obey the i
court's order. No freight train has !
moved for the last twenty-four hours, I
and the only work being done ia the j

torney Stryker returned to St Paul
from St Cloud at 10 p. m. Thursday
and at once proceeded to the chambers
of the United States circuit court and
issued warrants for the arrest of
the strikers at St Cloud who during
the afternoon cut cars apart with ham- j
mers and chisels. United States dep
uty marshals will attempt the arrests j
this morning. If there is serious re- j
sistance a company of United States
regulars will be dispatched to St Cloud

The Story of a Battle with the Daltons
Appears to lie True.
GCTHRrE, O. T., April 23. The report
received of a battle between the Dalton
gang and deputy marshals near
Ingalls, 55 miles from this city, is con
firmed. The fijrht occurred at the
house of Bruce Miller, one of the out
laws. The officers surrounded the
house, all of them armed with rifles, just
before daylight. The Dalton bandits
were inside. No shots were fired until
one of the desperadoes came out just
about daylight to feed the horses. lie
was held up and told to take a look
around the grounds and then return to
the house, tell the bandits to come out
one at a time unarmed and surrenderor
hostilities would be commenced. After
looking over the field and finding in
hooting distance of the house twenty
well-armed men the outlaw returned
to his companions. A half hour's con
sultation was held by the bandits.
Then the officers in command of tha
party ordered the men to begin firing.
The caged bandits poured a rattling
fire back through the windows
and crevices of the house. At 10
o'clock Mrs. Miller, who had been
wounded, crawled to where one of
the marshals was located behind a
tree. She had received a flesh wound
and begged that she might be permitted
to ride to Ingalls for a doctor
to attend herself, her baby and a
hired man, all being wounded. She
would not state how many outlaws
were killed, but admitted that Bill
Dalton and Bill Doolan had been
seriously if not fatally wounded. After
nightfall the bandits made a break
and fled, pursued by the deputies.
They went in the direction of
the Creek Indian country. Tha
messengers who brought this news
did not learn whether or not
Dalton and Doolan had been killed,
but was told that three fatally wound
ed were left in Miller's house after
their companions had broken through
the line of oCicers. lie states that
two of the officers' posse were killed
and three wounded. Another posse has
started out on the chase.
IN TRADE CIRCLES.
Mnch Cneatinoss Felt Over Strikes and
New York, April 23. R. G. Dun &
Co.'s weekly report says:
"New orders for future distribution are still
materially restricted by uncertainty about
action at Washington and about the extent
and outcome of labor difficulties. Most of the
recovery realized in business baa been made
possible by the consent of workers to
accept lower wages for a time, and if they in
sist on restoration of wag?s before consump
tion has restored prices many works must
stop. The great strike threatened by bitu
minous coal miners, and strikes of associated
employes on some railroads, make the future
less hopeful Exports of gold had some in
fluence, and continuing loss in earnings some.
"The failures of the last week have beea
somewhat more important than usual and were
219 in the United States, against lfc6 last year,
and 45 in Canada, against 22 last year. For tha
Erst half of April liabilities reported have been
I4.1C&418. of which ti,082,55J were of manufao
turing and 11,904,337 of trading concerns."
"With the exception of prospect for a still
further extension of strikes and other labor
disturbances, no plainly retarding influence
Is manifesting itself. So far as learned there
are about twenty-three additional strikes, in
volving 21.00J people. This brings the total
number of those now on strike or idle because
of strikes up to 60,000. The week also furnishes
eleven shut-downs of important Industrial es
tablishments, more than offset by resumptions
at thirty-two others, which furnish employ
ment to 5.090 operatives, although seven impor
tant establishments announced reduction of
wages. The heralded announcement that 200,.
0U0 ooal miners will strike has occasioned un
easiness among manufacturers at many central
and western cities owimr to the prospective
scarcity of fuel. Cities along the line of the
Great Northern railroad, which road is now at
a standstill because of a strike of employes,
are finding their reduced volumes of businesj
still further curtailed, and at Chicago labor
troubles seriously affect the buildlne trades.
"Cincinnati, Louisville, Duluth, Minneapolij
and St Paul report hardly as favorable trada
conditions as in the preceding week. The first
two announce that business is duller, while in
the northwest the railway strike and wet
weather are In part responsible. On the other
hand, Cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee and Kan
sas City announce considerable improve
ment in the jobbing demand and in several
Instances among. manufacturing indus
tries. At Omaha trade i. checked, due to the
revival of farm work following the good rains
throughout Nebraska, which was to be ex
pected. No material change is reported from
Chicago or from St- Louis, the volume of busi
ness in staple lines being about an average. A
fair summer's trade is anticipated."
