Wasiiisqion Fob 0 The southern
senators suddenly find thetubclvcs be
tween the devil nnd the thtp sea and
they have deemed It necessary to hold
a caucus about It
In the beginning the Democrats lu
the senate presented a solid front
against the pending shipping bill that
Is they supposed that they did It np
pears now however that at least six
of the southern senators nre going to
vote for the bill It 1o nppearsand Is
n factthat there Is a great and grow
ing sentiment In the south In favor of
the bill particularly among the cotton
growers of the plantations and tho
business men of the cities This Is evi
denced by a large number of petitions
nnd Indorsements by commercial bod
les by the tone of such authoritative
organs ns The Manufacturers ltocord
of Baltimore anil by private letters re
ceived daily by senators and repre
scntatlves at the capitol These ex
pressions of popular opinion have nat
urally had much weight with southern
On Wednesday news was received at
Washington Unit the Savannah board
of trade had unanimously ndopted res
olutions directing its delegates to tho
maritime conference at Brunswick to
favor subsidies Previously Indorse
ments of the shipping bill hnd been re
ceived from more than 20 other repre
sentative southern business organiza
tions Including the chamber of com
merce Produce Exchange and board of
trade of New Orleans the Foreign
Trade association and Merchants Ex

boro the Southern Industrial associa

Southern Industrial association nud the

The effect of such a combined ex
pression of southern sentiment Is visi
ble in the house of representatives as
well ns lu the senate Uepreseutatlve
Grosvenor of Ohio says that there are
at least ten or a dozen southern Demo
cratic representatives who will vote for
the bill and thnt these votes combined
with the solid Republican vote will
give the bill a large mnjorlty lu the
In the sennte It wns noticed that soon
after the action of the Savannah board
of trade had been made public Senator
Cloy of Georgia came to the front with
amendments to the shipping bill limit
ing the period of the subsidy to ten
years and reducing the maximum rate
of speed for receiving compensation
from 18 knots to 10 knots This would
indicate that under the conditions
which he names Senator Clay Is after
all In favor of the proposed subsidy
He says that his opposition to the
measure arises from his belief in free
trade nnd yet he allows that there Is
no use In trying to make this country
adopt a free trade policy because even
when the Democrats are In full power
a very considerable number of north
ern Democrats who are protectionists
always side with the Republicans on
questions relating to the tariff and
similar matters and thus always de
feat tree trade legislation
A pleasant little episode brightened
up the debate in the senate on Wednes
day nnd secured for Senator Turley of
Tennessee a reputation for humor In
the course of his speech against the
bill he took occasion to paraphrase
Senator Fryes appeal for the bill In a
tone of good nutured satire Senator
Turley referred with pathos to his re
ceut attempts to secure a small appro
priation for the Washita river or rivu
let and remarked If I could ouly get
that appropriation we would have
Amerlcnn ships laden with American
commerce and Balling under the Amer
ican Hag navigating from that river to
every port in the world and peuce nud
civilization would be greatly benefited
thereby This sally vastly amused
the senators and no one more than
Suuator Frye himself

These he explained were mnde from

Weir discovered the strength of tho

them very strong They were separat

nature could not be patented A nm
