WASHINGTON , May 17. [ Special Tclo-
gram.J It Is now understood among Morri
son's filunds that ho will call up thu tariff
bill In the house jitslassoonaaacouploinoro
of the nppiopilallon bills arc out of the way.
Jle Is not at all sure that the bill will pass ,
but ho Is determined to give It a fair chance.
Hois ix little nettled at the constant asscr-
tloim of the opponents of tlio hill that ho Is
ufi aid to call it up , and ho thinks , besides ,
that his chances aiu very good. Us gteat
dancer , he believes , lies In the attempt which
Is to bo made to strike out the enacting
clause. Morrison himself says that thoio-
poitsthathcis solng to let the bill so over
until the next .session without an clfort lo
call 11 up are not true.
A curious discussion has arisen among
members lulcicsted In llio river and harbor
bill , paitlcnlaily those Inteicstcd In the Mis
sissippi river appioprlatlons , icgarditiRlho
cffecl of llio action of Iho house In striking
out certain portions of the bill which placed
the expenditures for the Mississippi river In
the hands of the Mississippi river commis
sion. It was supposed at the lime that the
notion fairly knocked out thu Mississippi
river commission and placed the whole work
iilion that stream In charge of the war de-
pnitmcnt again. It Is now claimed , how
ever , that such Is not the case , but that by
subsequent bcctions of the hill and existing
law tlm commission Is continued In charge
of t he vt ork. L'\cn if It should not follow
that this is thu ease It Is ciultu piobablo that
thu senate may icstoiu thu Mississlpal river
commission clause ns It stood in the original
bill.Every day adds to tlio prospect that the
president will veto thu tiver and harbor bill.
It was about 815,000.000 in size when it got
through the house , but it looks now as though
it might bu about S' ' , UOO,000 latgur by thu time
it gets lo the president.
The house committee on agriculture is a
good deal disappointed at Its lallure to get
action last \\CCK on the bill taxing oleomar-
eailnc. It is liimly believed that thu bill will
icadllypass It it gets before the house. Thu
.senate committee liavlng it in chaigo has also
repotted the bill favorably , out as it
Is a nieasuio which affects revenues
tlm .senate cannot act upon it until it is acted
upon in the house. Them scums little doubt
of its becoming a law in a somewhat modi-
lied form whenever congtuss can getlimu lo
take it up.

cuiefully believe that the real inotlvo of the

which to ncgotiato tor the admission of

Van Wyclc on Pensions.
WASHINGTON , D. C. , May 17. [ Special Tel-
cgram.J Senator Van Wyck made a charae-
eilstlcally strong speech on thu subject of
pensions in tlio senate llns aflcrnoon , dining
lie eonsldeiation of the Blair pension bill.
Ho said ho undcistood the bill bcforo
ho senate to bu a service pension
iniler certain conditions. It pensioned
.hose who served six months or moie , who
are now disabled Irom any cause.
llo would amend llio bill by making the
pension unifoimly S3 a month to any sol-
Her disabled to tnu o\tent of being nnablo to
"in nlsh his own support , who depended on
Ids labor for his suppoit. This would do
away with the otlcn unjust system of grail-
ng pensions. Tlioso who received injuries
n tlio line of duly aio already by law entitled
o pensions. Senator Van Wyck uigcd the
pensioning of old veterans , whether their
lielplessncss giow directly out of their serv
ice or not ,
"Wo said wo would vote the last man and
the last dollar , " said the senator , "to save tlio
country nnd preserve the union. Wo voted
the last man , but the last dollar Is a long way
off. "
Mr. Harris "I understand that you would
Ivo SS a month for the slightest injury and
none unless S8 a month. Am 1 rlgluV"
Mr. Van Wyck "No , sir : no man shall bo
aced on the pension roll at 88 a month un
ss disabled from supporting himself. This
a idfr. a donation , to the poor and needy ,
and these who beg on Hie sheet , die In Iho
poor hmiso and aiu buried in plno boxes.
Theio should bo no disctlmination on ac
count of a supposed Injuiy and the present
system of latlng of pensions , which has
always been more or less uusallslactory and
unjust , should ho avoided. If we are to

Thu witness declined to comply with the de

Fears of fresh outbieaks of violence and

hat there were very many Idle , but willing ,

crowds to congregate on street corners.

Tlio led flag Is a public menace ,

The police have the right to suppicss these

They have a right to quell all such dlslmb-
auces. And Iho police and Iho chief magis-
tiatoof ( Ills city did their duty when the

rlirht to sliikc. Tney have a right
to quit work It thuy please , but
when they go one step fmther and say that

the law and can bu punished. It Is not only
principals that may bo held responsible , but
accessoiles as well. Ho nr they who stand
Idly by alter having advised the violence thai
has been commuted , may be held equally to
blame with the principals. " The judge fhcii
dismissed the jury , who wont Into session.

was the ono man whoso grip was strong
