The First Rmergeney Hill.
Wamfiinoton, Dec. 87.—The oom on rules of the House to-day re
ported a rule to rote on the ways and
menna committee tariff bill at 6 o’clock
this afternoon and the bond bill at •
o’clock to-morrow
The rulee report was adopted in the
House by 213 to HU. a strict imrty vote.
In anticipation of a Held day In the
House over the passage of the tariff
bill, agreed on by Hie ways and means
committee, great crowds were attract
ed to the capitol and every available
Inch of apace in the public and private
galleries, save the sections reserved
for the executive arid diplomatic corns
was takes. Most of Hie members who
bad pone home for the holidays had
hurriedly returned and the attendance
on the lloor was almost os large as on
the opening of the session. Many
Neruitors were also present. Imme
diately after the reading of the Jour
nal, Mr. Dingley, the chairman of the
ways and means committee, reported
from that oommittce the revenue bill,
which the speaker immediately re
ferred to the committee of the whole
Mr. t'risp said that the committee
minority hud hud no opportunity to
prepare and file Its views.
Mr Henderson of Iowa, from the
committee on rules, then presented
the special order under which the
House was to operate. It was iron
clad in Its character. It provided that
immediately after the adoption of the
gLdcr it would be in order to call up
the revenue bill just presented by Mr.
Dingley, and that the debate should

tervening motion, the vote should be
taken on the passage of the hill.
Mr. Crisp culled the attent ion of the
House to the effect of the rule under
which it was proposed to operate, and
esKi'd every member to weigh his re
sponsibility when be voted for It. Hero
was a bill, be said, that affected every
interest and all sections of the coun
try which it was proposed to put
through under n rule that deprived
the members of any right to offer
amendments. It must he taken or re
t acted as a whole. What authority,
le asked, was it on the other side
which proposed to pass a ineusure of
•uch importance under the crack of
the party whip without the dotting
of an "l* or the crossing of a “t"?
Mr. Dalzcll, Republican of Pennsyl
vania, said there was no one who did
not know that a pecullarexigeney waa
faced. Referring to Mr. Crisp's criti
cism of the crackingof the parly whip,
he said the Wilson hill, with 000
amendments, bad been passed through
the House after only two hours’ de
bate ami under a rule reported by Mr.
Crisp himself. He appealed to the
House to rise to the patriotic level
necessary to meet the emergency and
conic to the President’s aid.
’Mr McMillen. Democrat, of Ten
nessee, i iplving to Mr. Dalzcll, said
that I he ifference w as found in that
y fact that there had been elaborate
bearings l fore tbu ways and means
committee ifore tbu Wilson bill was
passed. Tl present bill had been
completed C ristmaa day, when there
was no opportunity to consult the
treasury otlicials, and he declared that
there bad been no opportunity to even
read the bill. He complained of the
cracking of the party whip, and said
in conclusion that the same [tower
which 'bad asserted Itself after the
Fifty-first Congress would again be
heard from after this exercise of party
Mr. Turner, Democrat, of Georgia
called attention to the fact that both
Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Carlisle, whom
he extolled as the greatest Secretary
of the Treasury since the days of
Alexander Hamilton, had given Con
gress the highest assurance that there
was ample revenue in the Treasury,
Both the President and the Secretary
of the Treasury had pointed out the
evil iu the financial situation and its
remedy. Everybody understood the
stress existing. And w hat was to be
the responses of Congress'.' Before all
remedial legislation it was proposed
to put a proposition to still further
bleed and tax the American people.
Mr. Henderson closed the debate in
a speech which aroused the Republi
can side to greut enthusiasm There

Washington, Dee. 97,—Chairman
Dingley of the ways and means com
mittee to-day reported to the House
the tariff and bond hill* agreed on by
the majority of the committee. They
were accompanied by the following
“Your committee regard tho chronic
deficiency of revenue for the past two
years and a half as the most potent
cause of the difficulties which the
treasury has encountered and an Im
portant factor In the creation and pro
motion of that serious distrust which
lias paralyzed business and dangerous
ly shaken confidence, even in the
financial operations of Hie govern
ment. It is a* impossible for a gov
ernment to have continuous deficiency
of revenue for two years and a half
without affecting its financial stand
ing as it is for ail individual, ft is
impossible also for a government to
eontinue in this coi'iHtlon without
ousting a shadow of doubt and dis
couragement over oil business opera
tions within its border*.
“Your committee believe* that it is
the duty of the House of Representa
tives, to which body the constitution
commits the inauguration of revenue
hills, to frame and pass a measure that
will yield not fur from (M0,000,000, suf
ficient to put an end to a deficiency

leaving to others, whoso co-operation
Is required, to finally place such legis- j
lutlou on the statute hooks to no-el
the responsibility in their own way.
And tiie President's special message
setting fortli so pointedly the serious
ness of tiie situation and tin; necessity
for tiie promptest action only empiiit
si/.c* the duty of the Mouse.
“Your committee have not under
taken a general revision of tiie tariff
ou protection lines as u majority hope
can be done in Isn7 or loll*, not only
because they know that such tariff
legislation would stand no chance of
becoming a law, hut also because gen
eral tariff revision would require
many months, and the need is more
revenue at once.
“The bill reported by your commit
tee proposes to make the duty on im
ported clothing wool do percent of the
duty Imposed by tiie act of I son, which
would give an equivalent of 0 O-Io of a
I cent per pound on unwashed wool, or
1 about 40 per cent ad valorem. This
I reduction from the duty of tiie act of
1 1800 has been made because the res
toration of the full duty in that act
might seem to be too great a change
from the present law to those whose
I co-operation it Is neccs.ary to secure
I in order to have any legislation, and
| not as a measure of what might he
! done when all branches of the govern*
i mentarofn harmony with the major
1 ity of the Mouse on protection lines.
1 The duty on manufactures of wool is
increased by a specific duty equivalent
to the duty on wool.
“The duty on carpet wools Is left at
1 thirty-two per cent ad valorem, where
it wus placed in 1890. This is a purely
! revenue duty, as we raise very few
1 carpet wools.
“Niicli lumber as was placed on tiie
free list by tiie act of 1890, without
tiie slightest justifleation, is restored
to the dutiable list, but witli a duty of
only sixteen per cent, of tiie duties
provided by the act of 1890 giving an
equivalent of only about fifteen per
cent Such a reduction from the low
rates of 1890 is justified only on the
ground that the object of your com
mittee lias been to frame a bill mainly
on revenue grounds, in tiie hope that
it would secure the approval of those
in ofllciul places wiiose co-operation is
essential to legislation, and who may
be supposed to feet that in such an ex
igency as now exists the public neces
sity must control.
The report on the bond bill says that
i tiie Secretary of t he Treasury now has
i the authority, under the resumption
act of 1875, to issue and sell ten-yeur
5 percent bonds and thirtv-year I per
cent bonds to maintain the fund for

Nkw York, Dec. 2<l. Eleven hun
dred people kasembled in Cooper Union
last night to condemn President Cleve
land's measage to Congress over the
Venezuelan boundary line (|ueall»n.
Ernest Howard Crosby presided. He
spoke of the Monroe doctrine as fol
**We are, here to assert all that
stands for the dignity of the American
pcoplo and to counteract the froth at
the mouth that lias become epbb-mio
and seems to have taken bold of the
people, AVc are here to protest
against, the errors of tin- President of
these United States." (Prolonged
hisses arid applause.)
The tumult that followed seemed
for the moment as If it would break
the meeting up. < ries of "put him
out.” "get out." and the like were
heard from all parts of the hall.
Meantime, the hisses and applause
continued. Just as ipilet had been re
stored the speaker continued: "What
lathe Monroe doctrine? It is not,'he
doctrine of Monroe; it is not the doc
trine of Grover Cleveland; it Is the
doctrine as Interpreted In American
history. When I was Investigating
Kgypt, I was scandalized to find that
Egypt paid an annual tribute of
turn from Turkey, to whom it was
paid, and who was stealing It. In the
past we have nut been much better off.
ilave we not stolen California and
Arizona? (Wild cheers) Ilave we not
atolen Texas?-’
Mr. Croshv went on from this to de
clare that the whole Hurry was the
logical outgrowth of the war spirit
that has been gradually growing up In
the country, and which is putting the
Schoolboys In uniforms and building
ships that we at least never ought, to
Kev. I)r. Lyman Abbott, of Plymouth
Church, Brooklyn, was the next
speaker. Dr. Abbott said that when
Mr. Olney says that If Dreat Britain
is allowed to gain rwixscssion of 3<>0
square miles of land. 2,o*XI miles
away, she will use It as a basis for
Operations to push acquisitions, the
Statement was ridiculous, because she
bas already thousands of miles she
Could use if so disposed. Nor Is this
S question of duty due a downtrod
den sister republic, said the speaker.
•'Since Venezuela became a re
Gibllc, Hfty years ago, she has
len In the throes of internal strife.
On the other hand, British lluianahas
always been a peaceful nation, and
whether the boundary of one be de
creased or the other increased is a
matter that does not concern us.”
(ilnnd clapping and shouts.)
"I stanu here tonight,” said he, “to
indict this acceptation of the Monroe
doctrine as characteristically and
spiritually un-American. America is
the peace nation of the world.”
Henry (ieorge was the next speaker.
He said, in part: "What, reason is
there for this war? I believe in the
Monroe doctrine and have stood for it.
This, however, is not the Monroe doc
trine, and what (Jrover Cleveland calls
the Monroe doctrine is but a travesty
on it and an utter absurdity.
"I do not believe Drover Cleveland
nsed Democratic methods with his
message, and I hardly believe he pre
sented it to his cabinet ”
Cries of “yes lie did,” and “no he
did not,” catiie from all quarters of the
Continuing he said: "Onr business
is to mind our business. If we want
to interfere in anyth :ng, let us do it
where there Is a principle at stake.
The advocates of this war scare do not
mean war. They are playing at poli
tics. ”
Charles Frederick Adams denounced
President Cleveland and his Venezu
elan message severely. His remarks
were received with a storm of hisses,
Rev. \V. G. Bliss, associate advocate
of Boston and Franklin Fierce also
made short addresses.
At tin- conclusion of the last ad
dress the secretary read a letter from
Dr R. Ileber Newton, protesting
against war, and also u resolution
which was put and voted for and
against in the same voice. It was de
clared passed, however. The resolu
tion in substance is that the chair

sugar is produced In the United fftato*
by the rival* of the trusts. The
American producer* are struggling
for existence, and an Increased duty
on raw sugar is the only practical
method of stimulating the industry In
the United (states. The duty on refined
sugar help* the great augar trust, but
the duly on the rev/ article assists thr
producers of the conntry generally
und Indirectly the great agricultural
Interest*. A duty of 10 per cent
on both raw and refined wonld
help tin- American beet sugar produc
ers, without benefiting the trust, since
the trust must purchase ita raw ma
terial abroad. The production of
every pound of sugar by the American
producer* entering into consump
tion in thi* conntry means so much
lea* On sines* for the trust, hence
the trust i* anxious to hinder the de
velopment of the home producer. The
danger is that the ways and means
committee in ignorance of the true
situation will fatally cripple the rapid

manufacturing in the I'n^tcd .States

that It Is flrat north and than aouth of
tha aitn’a path and that It la aomatlmaa

and regular from aaat to weat, carrying
the moon In Ita andlaaa awing around
the heavens, atsrtlng at naw moon near
tbs sun snd progressing until at full
moon th* whole vlalbla portion of tba
sky separates the two bodies. After
this tbera art two weeks In which the
moon the whole visible portion of the
approaching the eun from the other
aide, then, again apparently all of a
sudden, it passes the sun snd we behold
• "new moon." Tha north snd south
motion* of tba moon are entirely dif
ferent. While performing Its endless
Journey from west to east there are two
apeolal period* In which H either movsa
far northward or takas up 11s position
low down In tha aouth. In spring the
first motion I* north, but afterward tba
general motion Is reversed. In Decem
ber you will note that the full moon oc
curs at the most northerly point In ber
course and In June at tha most souther
ly. This Is why ws have most light
from the full moon of winter snd least
from that of summer. Observations on
these various movements Indicate to us
the path which the moon move* about
the earth and also show us that that
body In different parts of Its orbit Is
at varying distance* from the earth.
This Indicate* that tbe moon's path Is
rot a circle, but an ellipse, having the
earth In one of Its foci. Tbs moon be
ing governed directly and held In poal
tlon by the attraction of the earth, bolds
IU primary movements In a path
around our globe, hut the attraction en
ergy of the aun and of the giant planets,
perhaps In e lesser degree, produces
motions In ths moon which may be
summarised briefly as a combination
of the six following movements: O) Its
revolution about the earth, (2) Its ravo
lutlon with tbe earth about tbe sun,
(2) the vibrating eccentricity of Its
orbit, 14) tbe slow, direct rotation la
tbe "line of apsides," (6| the retrograde
rotation In tbe line of nodes and (•) Its
rotation on lu axla. St. IxmjIii Hepublla.

Bishop Whipple, of Minnesota, aaya
that the Dakota Indians once held a
war dance near a mission bouse. Ha
went to Wabasha, the chief, and said:
"Wabasha, you asked me for a mission
ary and teacher. I gave them to you, I
visit you, and the first sight Is this
brutal scalp dance, i knew the Ohlp
pewa whom your young men have
murdered. His wife ie crying for bar
husband; hie children ere asking for
their father. Wabasha, the (treat Spirit
boars hie children cry. He ie angry.
Some day he will ask Wabasha: 'Wbara
is your red brother?'" Tbe old chief
smiled, drew his pipe from bis mouth
and said: "White man go to war with
bis own brother In tbe same country;
kill more men than Wabasha can count
In all bis life. Great Spirit smiles; saye
‘Good white man! He bae my book. I
love him very much, I have a good place
for him by-and-by/ Tbe Indian is a
wild man. He baa no Great Spirit book,
kills one man, baa a scalp dan&. Oraat
Spirit la mad and says: ‘Bad Indian! I

Wabasha don't believe it!"

From the Chicago Tribune: Llttla
Billy, tba scarlet tanager which (or
several montba had been A willing
captive In W. F. Monroe’s cigar store, to
the Tribune block, died yesterday after
noon. The bird came the night of April
14 last. It was a stormy Bunday even
ing, and the Tanager, very wet and
scarcely able to fly, sought shelter la
the brightly lighted store. It was
thought remsrknble that so shy a bird
as the scarlet tanager should have
strayed Into the heart of a great city,
and still more remarkable that Idltie
Hilly stayed so long. For, though the
doors of the store were open all sum
mer, hs never tried to regain his liber
ty. A large bird cage was placed In
the store, and In this the tanager ate
and slept. Its door was left open and
Little Hilly preferred th pass most ot
his time hopping and flying about the
store. After he bad been In the store
several weeks be became comparatively
tame, and permitted the clerks te fesd
bint. II Is said liters Is no record of any
other scarlet tauager living In captivity
so long
