Doth the shciill and mayor hold the views that the piesencoot : the soldieis was all that was 10 inired to restore peace and older.

Thu Kcpubllcans On tlio Committee Assert Xhnt the 1)111 Is Horner or Party Necessity nml is Un-Aincrlcn.ii. Fnvorlnjr the mil. WASIU.VOTO.V , April 11.-Chairman Mor- Ison and Mr. Hewitt , of the committee on vaysand means , have completed the repoit of the majorltv of that committee to nccom- inny the tarllf 1)111. It will bo reported to the umso to-morrow. Tlio following nro the ulnclpal features of tlio repoit : The rate of duty or tax on Impoitcd goods subject to duty is as low as 5 on some nnd ilghcr than 200 per cent on otheis. The average rate for the fiscal yeurlSSS llttlo ex ceeded 47 per cent , or 840 of tax on S100 worth ot goods. This Is the highest into paid In any jear since 1803. nnd above the average ate of the war period , from 1S03 to 1833. After quotations from Piesldents Aithur indCleveland , setting forth the necessity of a arlff revision , the report continues : The reasury receipts for the fiscal vear ISSfl were " = 3X1,090,700. The increased receipts from customs and Inteinal Uixcs , the pilnclnal sources of revenue for thn months- of the fiscal year 1SSO already passed , over the receipts of the same months last car , justify the estimate that the iccelnts or tha piehent fiscal year will exceed 335,000,000. Nor may our annual treasury receipts bo expected again to fall below that sum without reduced taxation , Inasmuch as , heso receipts result chiefly from tlio taxes on irtlcles of necesslly nnd comfort to bo con sumed In continually increasing quantities with our ever growing population. The ex penditures tor the lineal year IBSi , including lenslons nnd the legal requirements of the nibllo debt , weio 5303,830,070.54. Neither ; ho nclunl needs of an economical ndmlnlslration of the government , lor tlio patriotic expectations of ho people , justify any increase of this enormous annual oxpendiluip , nnd we may safely estimate the annual suiplns to exceed 830,000,000. The reductions to lesultfiom the promised bill are within this estimated urplus and llttlo exceed 524,000,000 on the basis of last year's Importntlons. Kefcrenco Is made to Secretary Manning's views , as expiessed In his first annual re poit , touclilngllio ill effects ottho mnintaln- nnco of wa r duties , pointing out inequalities ( n the present law , and favoring the admis sion , free of duly , of raw materials , of which hoicpoit says : "These views of Secretary Manning as to the existing condition of the customs service and tariff taxation , are not paitlsan , but are in accouUmee with the views iressed on congicss by his predecessors Secrolarles Folgci and McCullough. Itistho puiposo of the bill icpoited to correct the same of classifications , rid cuslom laws of Iho complications of which the secietary com plains , and so change these laws for the Setter that they will bo capable of being ndministcicd with impartiality to all our merchants. Some ot the materials upon which great in- dustiics are built , such as wood , salt , hemp nnd wool , arc plncvil on tlio tiee list. In tlio past twenty yeais wo ha\o obtained from the tax on Impoitcd wood an amount estiiualcd nt less than S' 0,00 J , 000 to en courage the fell ing of our trees and destroying our forests. In a much shot ter pei loil wo have given moro than 35OJOOU ( acres of land In the bonntv lo encourage the planting ; of other trees , llio tax on Imported salt is icmitted to those who catcli and Irade In llsh , nnd to those wlio pack meat , for foreign markets. It is be lieved this tax should bo remitted to all. Af ter a century of ialhuc to make hemp either n profilablo crop or a successlul industry through piotectlvo taxations , further efforts should bo abandoned. The pi Ice of wool lias been downwaid for nuinyjeais. It declined when the tax was highest and protection llio greatest. It has been shown by statements of wool-growers that the duty linpoaedby ( lOncinlGarfielil'BRS- soclates , successors and school ot economists did not promote tlio giowth of sheen hus bandry , and it is proposed to remove it. For the last vear tills dut > on imported wool was 53,101,20.11)0. ) The spccilic duty imposed on woolen goods , says General GainVld ( ticat- ing of the tarilfcommisslon scheme ) asnearas possible equal to the duty put upon wool which entuied Into the manufacturewas Sll.fiOO.OOO , This , with the 8ilOi,20j.OG : equivalent duty , is to bo lomoved nnd the duty ot 35 per centum advaloiem on woolen poods , as a protection to manuiaclureis ngalnst foreign compctilioii , lemains and will yet bo a needed revenue. Other articles , tlio rate on which are so lo be reduced , ns cotton yarns , threads and coarser cotton cloths and sugar , aio now dutiable nt unnecessaiily and unreasonably liiuh lates. These will find compensation In the burdens of tixatlon sought to bo icmedled for icduc- tlons Inr gieater than any pioposed by the bill. Woget from the duties on cotton goods 510W)0.000. ) Thuiateson goods from which wo collect 52,103K ( ) , ) of this amount aio BliL'htly reduced , while the i ales on which wo collect the other SS , X,000 , aio un changed. Siurar , with the present low piico , Is loft al the high but ie\cmio rate , equiva lent to CO pr centum , At tlio present higher late wo celled on sugar moro ilian ono-louith of all llio lovi'iinu derived fiom customs. With the still existing high , It not unwuriantiblo , scale of cuuentoull- nary expenditure , and one-half of the money obligations ot the late civil war ycl to be paid , the high rate of taxation must bo long maintained. And In submitting tha pinposen bill , directing tlio costof thoslielter. of pait of the lood and of all Iho clothing of. the people , it lias been the elfort of your com mittee to adopt such rati's of taxation nswill ho peimanentnnd as will only need to bodl.s- tuibcd by an unfoieseen national ememency nnd at tlio same time to exempt the ncccs1 saiy nrtlcles fiom taxation , and thereby pro mote domestic industries. All that congiess can do in tlio absence ol aKcncial revision of thu taillf , with n now nnd slmplo classifica tion , Is to ptovldo for o.ieh canso of com plaint as It ailscs. In the bill pioposed the most piessing and piomlnent of gilcvanccs nro dealt with. A limitation orS500 has been Imposed upon thu value of went lug apparel nnd other prop- city which may be brought In fice of duty by passengers , excepting tomlsts anlvlng In the United States from nbioad. This provision , taken In connec tion with the proposed sections making it a crime either to gl\o or icccivo any money tor the passage of baggage thiough thu custom house , will , Ills bolie\ed , bilng tonn end the gteat abuse in icgaid to the oxcesiive amounts ot baggage hiaueht In free in competillon with tlio merchandise of importers wlio have to pay duties , The Minority Ropdrr , The teport of the icpnbllcan minority , which has been prepared by Representative McKinley of Ohio , begins with the statement thai the substitute agreed upon by the ma- joilty , Is a now cii'ntlon and embodies little matter that was included in the original bill as intioduccd by the chairman. After recit ing in detail the vulous articles which it Is pioposed to place upon the free list , and the reduction to bo made on manufactured goods , the mlnoilty report says : Nothing is moro unsound and fallacious ( linn to assume that n ie luctloii of dutits It demanded w 1 en the average ndvalcrem re- 1 orls Miovv a high p r cntnge. In times ol business ilopu'sslon nud lowprlcosjjia adva loreius , corresponding with specifc duties , show Incieised percentage over periods ol high prices , because the Riven specific duty li nlxrgcr percentage ot the low value than it Is of the high 'one. Thorn is no attempt In this bill fo "equalize the duties upon Imported goods uixin nny just principle or to make equitnblo Tcdnctlons throughout the tariff list. Of thlrt.v-brib or inoro aitlclcs dutiable at from 10 to SX ) ) Jer cent , not ono Is dealt with In this bill , while other articles , upon which Is Imposed K duty from 1 to ' . ' 0 perccntnro cutdown ortmnsfcircu to the free list , . ' The fico list Is peculiarly an assault upon the agricultural Intcrestaof the country , seek ing out from 4,000 articles In the tariff their leading products to bo dihcn out by ruinous competition from abioad. The first effort In the direction of frco tnulo is aimed at the organized farmers ot the country who are removed from centres of tmde , busy on their farms and plantations , unused to tncctlne committees of congress , and unadvised that their Interests wcfe to bo dealt nn unfriendly blow. They nro to bo the lirst victims of Drltish policy , through the njcncy of the American congress. Flax growers and spinners of America protast against tha unjust and unreasonable action of the committee In taking flax from the du- tlabln list , nud at the convention held in Chicago cage In Febiuaiy , 1BSO , declnied that the re duction of dntv on foreign fnbilcs would be disastrous lo llio domestic Industry. The committco have accepted and adopted the sect utary's politic creed "that the first duties lo bo safely discarded aio these upon niatoiials u'.ed by nur manufacturers , " and Its free list discards , saltlumberliemp and alt libres. The second stop will bo to discard nil duties , upon Impoitcd articles competing w itli our own , and then , nt least dtitls will be cvled upon ai tides not produced In the United btates , among which are tea and coffee. We must dissent wholly from this dec line nnd its conclusions nnd insist that , the rue method of levying duties upon Impoils to iniso the requisite invenuesfor the govern- nent , is to impose upon these Impoitcd nrtlcles which compote with the produces of our own Industries and labor ; and while such duties will secure the ncccssaiy rovc- iiies , they will , at the same time , cncouiac loiito productions , create n home market , and 'urnlsh omplovment for American woikinc- .11011 , without increasing the bindcns of the looplo. The mlnoiity declare- that the bill Is born of larty * necessity. It1 Is hero because ho democratic party is in control. I'ho people of the countiy are not asking for it. It is In icsponsoto no public sentl- uent or national requirement. In the judg- uent of the minority , it will increase , rather than diminish our customs iccclpts : that it will answer no sentiment for the reduction ot the surplus ; it will help no American in- erest It will cripple , If not destroy , all it .ouches.

[ Special Tele gram. ] Nearly all of to-day's local papers ) rophcsy the loss of the next house of rcpre- ontatlvcs to the democrats on account of the list in bed condition of politics throughout the Country and the dissatisfaction of the party vltli the present administration. The pres ent house has 1S1 democratic members , of Uiom 103 are fiom the south , : w from the east mA 14 from the west , constricting nil the ate slave states south , New Kngland , Now lork. Now Jeisoy and I'ennsylvanla east , nd the rest of tiio states west. The dividing Ine between the panics runs now as it has or years , cast and west , the democrats car rying the house because their members from ho north outnumber tlio republican members rom the south. Foimcrly this same line was Irawn in all Important votes In congress , attcrly , however , and especially now , the luo is purely Imaginary , and , if drawn at ill , is rather north and south than cast nnd west , thus tending to dtvldo both paitles In- itead of welding together the discordant elc- incut in each. rilANK IIIJUD AND TIIK TAHirT. It Is the programme In the house on Tnes- lay to antagonize the special uidcr of a month ago to take up the Kt-acan Ii4ter-stato comtnerco bill with tliollurd-Uomcis contest- id election horn the tenth district of Ohio. The opinion booms to mcvall that the cffoit will fall. The antagonism w 111 bo largely ono ) etwccn the tariff rolormers and the antl- ailff lofonncis , but there arc those of the for- ner class , It Is rcpoited , who will oppose tlio seating of Kurd because the majority of the committee on elections eleven out of flf- een , which Includes four democrats have eportcd against the seating of Hind. If It becomes apparent that It will hurt Hind's chances befoio the house tlio scheme will bo abandoned. The light , If it ensues , Is ex acted to bo n terrific one , and will show the strength of tno Monlson tailff bill tolerably well. The assistance of Hurd Is very much deslicd by Morrison and his followers before the tariff bill Is laken up. There aio no tariff reform orators In the house now. If they should succeed in seating him , It is the intention tocall up tlio tariff bill next week. This morning's Post , which is Morrlbon's organ , says : "Mr. Frank Huid is to bo seen dally aiound the house. Ho Is deeply inteiested In his contest with Mr. Komels , which will probably begin on the floor next Tuesday and continue for several days. " HEADY TO CUT TIIItOATS. The results of last Monday's clecllons in tlio western states are received dlffcicntly by classes of people hero. The republicans are , of course , jubilant over tlio sweeping victo- lies they , won almost everywheie , moro especially In Cincinnati and Indianapolis. The anti-administration democrats leceived the news witli a placid calmness that was in- teuulxed with a soit of "I-told-you-so" ex pression of countenance that shows that the antls are not wasting any great amount of ; riof over their party's defeats. The admin istration democrats , on the other hand , 10- ceived the news with rod-hot wrath. They say the party has been betrayed and defeated the old fogy antls because Pics id en I Cleveland is honestly cudeavoiing to carry out the platform which these vcrybouibons and fogies passed at the national conven tions of 18SO and 1834. The administration democrats , however , console themselves by saying : ' 'Well ' , beual , wo can stand it it the bourbons can. Wonic not all ofllcc-seekeis , while they are , and If the party coes out of | ) owcr In 18S3 wo will not bo any woiso off than wo have been , while they will lose oven what llttlo hope they have now of getting Into office under tlio government. " This sortot talk can bo hoard wliei over tlio friends of tlio president congregate , and it shows that throat-cutting time in the parly Is close nt hand , If it has not ahcady nulved. A cunious SUTICIO.V. A cm Ions suspicion has taken possession of many men heic , who aio accounted to bo \eiy"lly"in icgardto everything concern ing tlio administration , in rogaul to Secieta- Manning's Illness. These astute gentle men asseit that Secretary Manning is not now , and never has been seriously 111. They say that I'lesldont Cleveland and Manning quairelied in regard to the hitter's manage ment of the tieasury and ho has shut himself up at his residence , and will never again assume - sumo charge of the ticasuiy department. These suspicious men aio all democrats , and may know moro than Is given out to the pub lic. A few days will show whether they do or not. ANXIOUS ADOUT Tin : I'ltusimsxr. Since Secietary Manning's mishap , many of the Intimate lilemls of Piosldent Cleve land arc becoming very anxious In icgaid to his health. The piesidcnt Is very much of his secretary's build and temperament , and the habits of the two men aio precisely alike. They toll and work all day at tnolr desks , cat abundantly of the heaitlost food , but take no oxcrciso whatever , or next to none. The consequence Is that both have gained heavily In arvolidnpols since they came hero , and that , theieforn , what has happened to the secretary may also befall his chief at any moment. Close obseivcrs who have resided hero foryc.us and this includes many ot our most eminent medical mon = ay that In a malaria-ridden city men cannot sately pciform the f > amo amount of bialn w'oiktlmt they can elsewhere , unless they aio extremely careful as to diet , oxoiciso , and other matters esteemted to bo necessary to the enjoyment of good health. Hence this class of people hero are Indulging In doleful prognostications in rcgaul to thu health of the picbldent.ttml are constantly advising him to take better caio of his health , In older that ho may be spared to fill out the full measure othlstcim , It Is to bo hoped that ho will heed tlio advice , for wo want no moro accl- clcnclcs. aomiAJf ON TOP vr.T. Notwithstanding all that has been Bald against Senator Gorman nnd his methods ho Is still evidently on top. Of tlio appointments already made in Maryland Uonnan has te emed throe of every four , nnd the plums he gets for his friends are all ot the very choic est , while he graciously permits the other fae tlon to gather only the unsound , sour nnd gnarly specimens. This man ( Jorman'fi In- lliienco with Cleveland will bo better under stood when the fact Is recalled that It was through his unscrupulous manipulation ol the "count , " which took place In Now i'oil city after the election In IS sl , that socurei' tlioclectoi.il vote of the Kmpirocity to th ( democratic candidate and thus made Gro\oi Cleveland picsldent of the United States The facts In ioaid to this stupendous piece of rascality have only becomu known withli | hu l.iit tluco uKmlus , , and tuuy bhpw Urn the Introduction by Uonnan of his Maryland tactics Into the Now York count cheated James U. Ulalno out of enough votes to se cure his apparent defeat. Therefore Gor man is paramount to nil others in Inlluonco wlUi tlio present administration , and will continue so to the end. His unsavory henchman , Eugene Hlggins , will also stick , ripsplto the curses ot Cleveland's wannest friends and of the protest of the more decent portion of Mary land democrats , nnd there will bo moro lllg- glnoses appointed if Senator Gormau de mands It. A HIT AT WKSTKIiX WOOL 3IKX. Within the last foity-clght hours It has leaked out thai llio democratic delegation in congress from Lonlsanaha\o been negotiat ing with Morrison , who is anxious to secure their support for his ( Instructive tariff reform bill. Herctofoio the Loutsann democrats have icscntcd all frco trademcasurcsln order to retain the protection to their smar grow ing Interests which the lopubllcaus secured lor them years nco. Moirlson ottered to leave them about one-half the piesont pro tection If they would vote with him as to the lest , but they demanded that It remain as It is , promising that If no change Is made they will vote to cut down protection on all north- cm Interests generally , and to help cut off all protection to tlio wool growers of the west nnd north. Now will the democratic wool growers swallow this attempt of their southoin brthrcn to sell them out In ex change tor n llttlo swectenlngi1 Nor la this nil. The rlco growers of the south are also cndcavoiing to make the same kind of a trade with Moirison offering to nld him In making a raid upon all northoin Industries If ho will only permit the protection the icpub- llcans throw around the ilco interest to re main untouched. Those facts are commonri- cd to the caretul and prayerful consideration of democratic wool roweisof Ohio , Indiana and other shcep-keoplng states. Their southern brotheis are trying to rob them. The remedy Is In tliolr own hands. They have only to vote with their real filcnds In the future , and tlio pestiferous Moirison and bis free trade gang will bo rendered unable to further piosnciito their raids upon the pro ducers of wool In the fiituie. AJfTI-MOllMONS Al'ltAID OP AVKST. Among the anti-Mormons hero there Is no satisfaction over tlio appointment of West to the governorship Utah. Speaker Carlisle Is the influence which secured West's success , and the fact that the Mormon's like It is re garded as a bad sign. One of the Salt Lake gentiles said to-day : "Of course , wo aio dis appointed. AVe aie afraid of the new man. Ho may bo all right , but things are in such n condition in Ulal ( that thciowillbo a great deal of anxiety until wo know ho is. The fact that ho Is Speaker Caillslo's choice does not reassuio us. Cailiblo has presidential aspirations , and the political influence of the Mormons is very gieat nnd reaches In a great many directions. What a man with that soil of an ambition will do , one can never tell. I suppose ho controls \Vest \ , and ho certainly has the chance of making an excel lent deal with bitch a factor. Will wo oppose the continuation ? Oh , no ; wo will take what we can get , and tiy to get along with It as best wo can. FOUTV-N1NTII CONGRESS. Senate.

The country vas ono with Intcicst , sin passing In lutonslty nothing remembered by this generation , thulstono's speech , by general consent , hough wanting In some of his highest oratorical qualities , was n masterpiece ol ucld exposition.

I'loveljan spoke on Thuisday ovonlin : amid continuous lilsh interruptions , but when ho sat down the house felt that the question had ) ecn taken once for all beyond thu region of ncro peisonal and party attachment lo Gladstone. Chamberlain , I'll day night , In a pcech of oxtiaordlnary acutcncss and power , closed evciy door to compromise. Ho do- iCilbed Gladstone's bill as embodying the nnxiinum of ilslc nnd llio minimum of ad- vantage. He objected to tlio toimiiiaUon of lilsh rcpicsentalion at Westminster because solo icpicsentallon at Dublin could mean only a parliament with ordlnato nnd equal authority with Iho Imperial paillament. lie objected to the surrender of the right of im pel ial taxation to Ireland. Ho objected to he surrender of the appointment of judges ind magistrates. Ho objected to many other lungs , and insisted that the scheme , as a vhole , was one far ultimate separation , not ionic rule. Dining his tilt with Gladstone Chambeilain caused n tiomcndoits sensation by iclciiing to the premier's sentiments owaid the United States during Iho war of ho rebellion. Sir , " said he , " 1 remember that tlmjo vhen , In its greatest crisis , whnn it was In ho most loirlblo moment ot Us fate , my right honorable friend counselled dlslutcgr.v ion of the United Slates.

Thus far not ouonon-oUlclal membri of the house , whoso Buppoit means anything , has defended Gladstone's pioiiosal , Pai- nellltes oxceptcd. The gmicial opinion Is that Gladstones bill olfeis Painell moio than was asked , and cioalos not nu'iely an Irish paillumenl , but an lilsh stalo. ills pai- llament would have powcis nominally limit ed , bntpiautlually unlimited.
