Senator Merrill Delivers a Speech on the
Subject in the Senate.
Ueclc and Bhornian Take Part In the
t The I'roccndliiKH of
llnth HrnnolicH lit
Dec. 9. The hotiso
amendment to tlm senate bill for the relief
of graduitcsof thu United States military
academy and to fix their piy was among the
matters submitted by the presiding olllcer
when the senate met to-day. 'I ho amend
ment piovldes that eulits shall bu allowed
full pay as second lieutenants from the date
of their graduation to thu date
of their acceptance of the commission. The
amendment was concuncd in and thu
bill now goes to thu house.
Mr. Cameron moved that when thu senate
adjourns today it be until Monday next.
Agreed to ,
Among the bills Introduced and rcfuired
were the following :
Hy Mr. McMillan To authoilzo the con-
Ht-uctlon of a bridge across thu itcd Itiver of
the iVoilh.
Hy Mr. Sevvull To : iuthorl/u the redemp
tion ol trade dollars ,
The simate then proceeded to the considera
tion of the resolution Introduced by .Mr.
Merrill , declailnglt to bu inexpedient and
detrimental to the trade and Industry of the
eountiy to makn any further attempts at n
revision of the tariff by the present
conitress nnd Mr. Alorrlll addressed
the benato In .support of thu resolution.
Ho said It was cleat that the democratic pres
idential candidate lu IHb-l would imvo been
defeated hut for the protective tariff buck-
bono Insetted In the democratic platform by
thu national convention at Chlcaco July 10 ,
1834. These f-troim pledges , pregnant witli
fair minded protection In eveiy sentence ,
had been , he said , Introduced Into the demo
cratic platform through thu insistence of pro
tective taiilf democrats , who weru now re
ceiving vitriolic denunciations from the
latu half breed allies ol fieo trade because of
tliclr honest efforts to lire vent their paity
from violating the pledges on which thu
party obtained its \lclopy bv a majority of
only n finger's breadth , ileloro the election ,
"Iho devil was sick , the devil a monk would
lie , " but after the election "thoduvllwas
well , thu devil u monk was lie. " It would
seem that the pn t > of lice ti.tde , under the
alias of "revenue reform , " hasduteimiueilto
run amuck against nearly all the Industilcs
and pioductlons of America , and such as
e-iiipu thu first assault could not hone for
lii\nunll > fiom the next. Hu pioccedul to
rimoule .Mi. Monlson's schcnus lei a hori
zontal letluetlmi of thu tarltf , comparing
them to Dr. bangrado's specific , nnd "aid
that their eifect could only bo to let a Hood ot
foieiu'ii pioductlons pom in land overrun the
Amcilcan markets. Thesu measures , ho
mid , not havlmr Insplied lovu at lirst sight
among the members ot the house anxious lo
esoano a Waterloo In thu Ides ot November ,
a juvenile gamn of bo peep had commenced
and an amended bill had been hurilcdly
brought to the liont , while tlie horizontal
lumped to the peipundlcular , and all about
lion diopped out ol sight toi salctj. Iho
authoiH had seemed to leali/o
"What perils do env iron
The man that me'ddlu with cold iron. "
Finally the farmers had been selected as
the victim' ; of the new experiment , and the
vast wool Interest , deeply Identified with all
poitlonsof the eountiy , vvasio be exposed
to absolute annihilution. it might be , hovv-
uvur.tuat the lamb like si'bmissiveness of thu
Mool-giowc-is had been
overestlmited. In

they might not consider It tj ranuous to use it
in bc'lf-defense. A new generation has ap

'They ate dead which toiight tlio young

The democratic party That pirty had
been Intrusted with the power of leclslatlng
In the house , limy had nromlscd In then
national platform to reduce taxation and do
It in such n manner as not to Injure tlie in-
doUtles of the country. Hut the trouble was
that the democrats could not pioposc any
plan. They could not aerce among them-
elves. 'Iho propositions that had been
mndc In the house had been m
dlvctco andarlotis nnd some
of them had been so absolutely
contrarv to the Interests of the country that
tliu party Itself had revolted at them. If the
plan proposed by n member of the demo
cratic pirt ) In thohousehad been sanctioned
by congress and had gouclntoelfcct it would
havftlKHMi the oveilhrow and destruction of
tlio democratic pirty , beciuse , w hllu It might
hive reduced taxation , it would hnvo des
troyed the industries ol the eovntry. The
democratic parly had hadeontiolof the hoitso
of lepru'cntatlvos. ( the only bed ) whcru tax-
ntlou bills could originate ) , for ten or twelve
) eais , and > el thu only leductlon ol bills
which had been made within that time had
been made during thu only two jeais thu re
publicans had control of the houe. . 'Ihen ,
In l SJ , the taxes had been reduced some
S'O 000,000 or iOO.OOO.WW , and the senator
front Kentucky had opposed that law to the
bitter end , Mr. Heck said ho voted for
It until it was chauucd and manipulated In
the conference committee and then hu had
voted aval list It. If the deiuocrallc
party wanted to reduce taxation , wltcio was
their proposition ? NOHO had been made
until the democratic party , havlni : n large
majority In the house , could send a bill to
the senate. The senate had no jurisdiction
on the subject. The senate had awaited the
action of the house on that subject for elcht
lone weary months last session and had
waited in vain. The proposition tint had
been made in thu hoti < c had created such n
revulsion of public opinion , especially in thu
noithvvest. that the majoiltyof Undemocratic
party had been iarcely reduced. It thn demo
crats Imd been ablu to carry ono of their
measures through , their mijoilty would have
disappeared IA all. Therefore , until some
proposition was made to the bcnatc
by the house or icniesentatives , It
did not llo In the mouth of thu senator from
Kentucky tocomplaln , or scold , or chide tlio
senate with a falluro to ludtico taxes. In
conclusion ho said that until the democi.u e
party could agicc among themselves and
could present to the senate a plan by which
the dumocints vveio willinc to stand , they
had no ruht to chide or complain ol thu
leptiblicans. When the ) would bend the
senate a bill , thu senate would show them It
had the power to reduce taxes and tliosenato
would propose a measuio hy which the taxes
might bo reduced without crippling industries
or decreasing waies.
Mi Danes obtained the floor and will
speak when the subject Is next taken up.
Adjourned till Monday.

ply to the .Indians food , etc , which must bo
secured west of the Mississippi , and let those
which supply clothing nmi othct articles

Senaloi Van \Vjck ilred another center
shotat a Washington monopoly to-day. Jlo
Introduced ' ; In the senate a resolution directIng -
j Ing ; the District commltteo to investigate cer
tain impositions and neglects by the Metro
politan Street Hallway company. Although
this corporation owns the e\clushe right of
waj for street ralhoids here , it Is alleged
| that It neglects to run cars on certain routes
at . . times when most needed it It docs not suit
Its convenience. Since It is trying to keep
out competition , and demands so much at
the hands ot congress , the senator means to
aseuituin it the people have not some lights
which even a corporation must respect.
This uvenlim's Star has this on the subject :
"Mr. Van WvckBildlicoflTeied the resolution
at the request ot many cltl/ens ot Washing
ton t , who aie compelled to depend upon this
rnllioid line tor means of tr.tusit. lie slid
this t was only one of the many griu\aiires the

appxrentthat the determination of this com
pany 1r 1 is hrst. second and last , to opeiato the

Hint t when tlui load was chaiteted some idea
of the people's rights seemed to pte\al ! , but
now all that Is ignored , and that the people
are unable to nrocuruiuliuf. .Mr. Van W\ck

1s had 1 expressed an Intention to investigate the
sttectiallwav 1S 1t question ot thu national cipl-
tel t , and ho ( Van W > ck ) hoped ho would do
so. Mr. Van Wck , continuing , said the
cars ol the Metropolitan llneaie overciowded ,
horses and drivers ovcrwotked , and that the
natrons are oveiworked In being compelled ,
rli in i addition to palug laios , to pcrfoim the
duties of conductors. Ho desciibes the in-
coineuience ot u.issengets In an o\ercio\\ded
car , passing up faics , and unking change ,
stepping upon the toes of other passengcis.

upon the lino. norm ot Dupout ' ' 'nele '
lose J .ton minutes 111 each trip , as
these t Is only ono horse to diaw an
overcrowded car. The late of speed , ho de-
claied , is not equal to that of a dray team
drawing a heavy load , lie declaied that the
nntortunato people ot Washington have no
powei 1 In themselves to compel these coipo-
rations to iexpect their rights , and tliatitls
1c high 1 tlmocongicss should interpose. He des
cribes 1t the lallroad company as a corporation

between persons and places , the giving of

tain other practices , which tire declared to be

publish their rates nnd to adhere to them
when published. The > did not differ mate
rially In thu penalties piovlded for violation
of their general piovlsions , but they dif
fered widely In the methods pro
posed for securing their enforcement.
The house bill gives every shipper
with n grievance the liL-hi of action in state

in Ids own behalf , for tlio rccoveiy of tlio
damages ho may have sustained , with a pro
vision that aieasonabloattoinev's fee should

icquiicd the cieatiou of a commission ice -

and to settle them bvaibitratlon , if possible ,
