TARIFF CONFERENCE. rh Kepabllean Senators Hold m C nee an tho Tariff A Bill to be Yreaeateo! and Its Passage Pressed. Washington, July 20. A tariff confer ence of the Republican Senators was held at Senator Evarts' residence last night, at which a decision was reached that the Fi nance Committee should prepare a Tariff bill as a substitute to the Mills bill aud that it should then lie reported to tho Sen ate and taken up and passed regardless of the length of time this might require. Various propositions looking to an early adjournment and a postiionement of the tariff battle until December were sug gested, but tho arguments advnuccd by the advocates of the policy of passing a bill ami making the direct issue as early as iossihIe were so strong that tho assemblage became emphatically unani mous in favor of the course finally adopted. It was urged that the Democratic House had taken its time and consumed many months in framing and debating f ho measure it had put forth and that the he publican Senate would not be curtailed of its full libertv of action on a question j which so vitally affected the interests of the country ana ot the Kepuitucau party, j The Finance Committee was instiucted to continue its work and bring it to a con I Iummii as speedily as it could consistently 1 with a careful pei formance of the task ni ! lotted to it. The bill will be an outgrowth of that al ready sketched by the sub-committee, but Ike views expressed by Senators and approved by a mnjoritv of the Senate , will doubtless lead to some mollifications j nnd changes of detail. Tho net reduction ( of revenue to be attained will probably b between $C,0tiO,0uO and $ni,i)00,uw. Tho conference adjourned at midnight. No one. not even Members of the Finance Committee, ventures to guess now at the length of the session. Among those who , advocated the postiionement of the tariff ' question :ntil the next session was Sena tor Quay. He said, however, that it was for the doubtful States to decide what should be done in the matter. It is, there fore, evident that those States which are regarded as pivotal in the next election favored the course decided upon last night. The Republican members of the sub Finance Committee of the Senate have been very busy conferring with party leaders in regard to tariff action. There was a strong influence exerted to prevent the Senate from taking any jiositive action on the tariff. It came largely from Re publican leaders of the House, but was supported by some of the Senators. Dur ing the entire day Republican Senators were earnestly talking, sometimes in pairs and sometimes in groups. Little knots would gather in the clonk rooms and cor ridors, and tho earnestness of their manner made it manifest that some iiiilortaiit subject was on hand. One Republican member of the Finance Committee said that the Tariff bill was not complete, but that many of its main provisions were determined, and that be fore determining others some of the Sena tors would have to lie consulted. Ho re marked that the plan was to get the bill completed and agreed umhi by Republic ans before rejnirting it. The Republicans are very reticent in regard to their plans. They do not wunt any of the provisions of their bill to be made public in advance of ita being reported, but enough can be learned to show that they can not say themselves just what may be done. THE BROTHERHOOD FIGHT. The Position of the It uriingtoa Strikers In dorsedA Federation to be Formed. St. JosErK, Mo., July 26. The joist meeting of the Brotherhoods met at two o'clock yesterday afternoon and concluded its deliberations, adjourning at five o'clock. It transpires now that the business of this meeting had very little relevancy to a set tlement of the Burlington difficulties, but, on the contrary, was held for the purpose of making war to the knife on the railroad system. W. M. Armer, chairman of Di vision No. IU, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, offered the following, which was unanimously adopted: lltlirl. That the meeting heartilv indorses the action taken by the Chicago, Uurlincton & Quincy men in refusing to declare the strike off onthecun it ions offered. Tbe conditions referred to above are those which are now being circulated among the members of the Brothorhood by Hoge and Murphy, and which are, in the main, as follows: That no men shall be blacklisted; that the company shall take liack such men and as many as it may elect. That for the next two years the company shall employ tbe late strikers in preference to other men, and that it shall give letters of recommendation to such men as it can not give employment. The Brotherhoods construe this proposi tion ns meaning that the company can stop after taking back one or a dozen men and that the great mass of the strikers will not be lieneiited in the least by the accept ance of such a proposition. It was unanimously resolved by the meeting that company Ik? compelled to take back all of the men who went out mi the strike or none. This means that the situation to-day is exactly as it was February '1. One of the objects of this meeting was to arrange matters financial pertaining to j the strike. It has been claimed by many that the Brotherhood treasury was de pleted, and that the Eastern men were iu favor of declaring tho strike off in order that the assessments for the support of the j MUKi-rs iiuiil lie uiscoHiuiucu. ii ;i stated positively by the pres committee ot the Brotherhood that the Eastern men arc heartily in favor of the continuance of the strike, and sufficient finances were ar ranged for to carry the strikers until such time when the four organizations will be federated. The federation plan was indorsed by the meeting, and it is quitw certain that iu Ies than four months the scheme will be in force. Each of the four Brotherhoods will hold conventions as follows: Brotherhood of Engineers, at Richmond, Va., in Octo ber; Brotherhood of Firemen, at At lanta, Ga., in September; the Switchmen, j at St, Louis in September; Brotherhood i of Brnkemen, at Columbus, O., in Octo- j ber. Tho fir.st convention will adopt a . federation clause in its constitution which will be accepted by the other conventions. m m Anderson Stilt in the Well. Johnstown, Neb., July 2S. At six o'clock yesterday morning Joba Anderson was still a prisoner in the well. Tuesday night he had a chill, but by rubbing his limbs and , getting the circulation started he soon I milled. The new well is down fifty feet and diggers are now at work tunneling to the old well. The great danger will be that when they strike the old well it may ' give way bud let sand in and smother him instantly. He asked about his stock and wanted to know who was attending to them. When asked if be would like for them to put a pipe to him in the old well for conveying food and water to him, be said it was too risky and was unwilling to take such chance for a few hum its. THE COUNTY SEAT WAR. Farther Partlenlaxs of the Killing; l Stevens County. Kan. An Editor's Ac count of the Affair. Liberal, Kan., July 30. The Ixulitts of the four men killed by the Hugoton party were taken to Voorhees, Stevens County, and, with tbe wounded ly Ton ny, afterward taken to Woodsdale. No further shooting has been re)orted, but armed squads of Hugoton and Woodsdale people have been seen by travelers iu dif ferent parts of this county and may meet at any time. Attorney-General Bradford, of Topeka. and Brigadier-General Murray Myers and Captain J. H. Wallace, of Wichita, arrived here yesterday afternoon and departed a few hours later for Hugoton. While here they questioned man v residents of this town. and many others from Woodsdale and Hu goton relative to tho wur in Stevens Coun ty, and despite the fact that the towns engaged in the war were well represented here, they found it imjossil!e to arrive at. nnv tliinr- 1ik n rittinit i-tiiwliivinii w ti j the actual state of affairs, j Some claim that Woodsdale men to the- numlier of fifty or more have surrounded a- party of twelve Hugoton warriors at a i small place called Iafnyette, and an- vn j deavoring to drive them from their hiding i place, but others go no further than to deny the story aud claim that the war is for the time lieing at an end. The Hugoton and Woodsdale men now in town arc pcaceahlo and claim to have left home to avoid trouble. That they fear to return indicates an absence of Ielief in the report that Stevens County hostilities have ceased. The Liberal Lewlrr publishes the follow- 1 ing statement from C E. Cook, editor of the- Hugoton Herald; "Saturday, July 21, a party consisting of C. E. Cook, O. J. I Cook, A. McDonald and Sam Robinson, ; with their fumiliex, went to the Strip, hunt i ing and fishing and gathering wild plums. On the third day out, and at Golf's creek, they were surrounded by a party from Woodsdale led by Ed Short, and a demand made for their immediate surrender, which, of course .'as promptly refused. The party then determined to try and divide their force, which con sisted of eight men. It was decided to have Sam Robinson take one of his horses and flee, which he did, with five men in hot pursuit and on horseback, and armed with Winchesters. The remaining Hugoton men hitched up their teams and let their wives take charge of them, while they marched out, with their Winchesters, and protected them in making their escape. They made a forced march to Hugoton, and a force was immediately organized and started in pursuit for the rescue of Robinson. They met Robinson iu the Strip on his way home, about eleven miles in the Territory, and, as it was near mid night, concluded to go into camp at some haystacks near by. When they reachel the stacks they were fired upon by parties secreted in the stack: and a general fusilade began. When it ended Sheriff Cross, Bob Hubbard, J. Ea ton and Wilcox were dead and a young man by the name of Tonny was seriously if not fatally wounded. Sam Robinson, of the Hugoton party, was shot through the leg. Any statement differing from this is- , false, as this is written by an eye wifhetfes of the whole proceedings. It was the in tention, as stated by Cross and Short, "to kill Sam Robinson. E. E.and O. 8. Cook and A. McDonald, and they stated they were in the 8trip for that purpose. S. N. Wood stated that if the Hugoton party was ever allowed to leave the Strip alive the Woodsdale people were cowards. Tbe necessity of such a slaughter is deeply re gretted by all of our people and they lay the blame of the whole matter upon S. N. Wood, who is believed to be at tbe button of the scheme."
