WASIII.NCITON' , D. C. , July 5. |
The president's letter to Tammany has
ftccn the subject of much comment to-day.
In the first place It is pretty generally desig
nated as the plea of n politician nnd partisan
for votes. Secondly , It is Interpreted as
hedging on the tariff question to a dcglco
which was not expected of n man vho , seven
months ago , wrote n bold free trade message.
Ills assertion that ho nnd his party are not
free traders Is ridiculed by republicans , and
even democrats smile when It Is mentioned.
H Is generally thought that the president has
finally become aware that his nnd his party's
anti-protection platform nnd policy have
Beared the protection democrats In the cast
to such nn extent that his rc-ulcctlon has be
come rather doubtful. The first manlfcstn-
tion of this finr is considered to
be the re-election of Barnum ,
the Connecticut protectionist , to be
chairman of the democratic national com
mittee , which wns a clear concession to the
protection clement of the cast. A few
months ago Barnum was considered out of
the question for that place , but the attitude
of the protection democrats forced Cleveland
to change his tactics. Barnum Is to have the
platfortn Interpreted in the cast to suit the
Views of voters. Now Cleveland's letter is ,
In the opinion of leading republicans , nothing
but nn cttort to hedge on the tariff , but ho
nnd his party have so strongly conimittca
themselves to an anti-p'.ot ( . : tion policy ,
which i equivalent to free trade , Unit
nothing that they now can do to obscure the
leading Issue will succeed. This is the opin
ion of republicans generally and some demo
crats agree with them.
TUB TAU1IT. HIM.
Congressman Cannon , ( . ' Illinois , said this
morning : "I believe n vote will bo taken on
the tariff bill between July 15 and'JO , but
that is only a guess. I have no positive In
formation on the subject. Tlio policy of the
republicans has not been one of obsiruction ,
ns the democrats would have the people be
lieve. The republicans have only Insisted
that u free discussion of the bill shall bo
had. Nothing more. They have not talked
for the sake of talking. If the members did
not discuss the various Items in which their
constituents were interested they would be
very foolish. I think wo can got away some
time about the middle of August. "
There is some encouragement for an early
passage of the tariff bill. There was an in
formal conference of the committee of ways
and means this morning at which there was.
a disposition on the part of the republicans
to hasten to a vote as rapidly as possible and
they gave an assurance that there would bo
no dilatory tactics or unnecessary time occu-
I pied in debate. It was the opinion of Messrs.
Heed and McKinley that the discussion of
the bill ought to bo concluded within
the next ten days , und the dale
llxcd for n final vote is
Monday , the Ifith of July. There is no more
doubt that the democrats will show a sufllc-
icnt majority to pass the bill. Everyone con
cede ? that. There may bo a few like Mr.
Randall. Mr. McAdoo and Mr. Foran , of
Ohio. WHO will vote with the republicans ,
but they will not number moro than six or
seven und the bill is likely to got three votes
on the republican sidu.
Tlio senate committee on finance heard the
chemical manufacturers to-day and are hav
ing arguments submitted , both orally
nud in writing , from representatives
of all industries' affected by
the bill. They will bo ready to report n sub
stitute within iv week or ten days after re
ceiving the house bill , or at least before the
1st of August , when tlio debate in that body
will begin. The action of the senate can be
readily anticipated. It bus been conferred
over and caucussed nuout so much that it is
no longer a matter of conjecture. The
plan Is to patch up the present
customs laws in spots where they an
very faulty , to reduce the duty on some nrtl
clcs that do not care for protection , to re
remove the tax from tobacco , and alcoho
used in the arts , and remove the duty or
sugars. This will bo added to the hill ovei
which the financial committee has been la
boring MI long to prevent und punish the un
ilcrvaluation of merchandise in tha Neu
York uppraiscr's office.
SUXATOH CUM.OM'B ri.Axs.
Senator Cullom was in his scat to day foi
the first time since the Chicago convention
but looks far from well nud feels badly. He
gave notic/3 that ho will call up the bill tc
amend the inter-state commerce- net on Mon
day next , when n long and interesting doliati
is.likely to ensue. No action has yotbeei
taken on the bill Intiodueod by Mr. Spoonei
to place telegraph companies under the juris
diction of the inter-state coiumcrco coimuis
Hion , ami it is not probable that there will hi
any this session.

Assr.Miit.r Quouxns , CIICTI : , Neb. . July 5.
[ Special to Tun Br.n. ] Lmicr before the
appointed hour yesterday afternoon the vast
lavlilon was densely packed with people who
: iad come early with a view to obtaining good
seats for Senator Mandcrson's address. So
many people had been actuated by the same
motive that for once there wcro no late ar
rivals. These who cnmo before time found
seats In the sultry pavilion and crowaed
closely together to make room for these who
Dcrsistcd In wedging themselves into the
Ijcnehes alter they wore already too crowded
for comfort. These who came into Jammed
themselves together in the aisle , where they
would obstruct the view of others , or stood
In triple phalanx around the outskirts of the
pavilion and craned tholr necks to get a view
of the Interior. In the words of an old gen
tleman who leaned against a post In the aisle
and vigorously fanned his Hushed face with
his broad-brimmed hat , "It was a very Swel
tering day. " Tlicre was a great flourish of
fans , papers , hats and anything that could
bo made to produce a current , and the arti
ficial breeze thus created rendered existence
in the crowded pavilion n little more tolerable.
Senator Mandcrson was conducted to the
pavilion by a procession composed of the
bands , the Itnights , the Patriarchs Militant
and the G. A. H. As the members of the
procession filed Into the places reserved for
them in the center of the pavilion , Dr.
Palmer's chorus of 200 voices sang with
spirit , "When Johnnie Comes Marching
Home. " Senator Mnnderson , Commander
Henry , Dr. Duryca , ox-Governor Dawcs and
President Foss occupied places upon the
platform. The session was opened by prayer
by Ur. Duryca , of Boston.
With n few appropriate remarks President
Foss Introduced Senator Manderson whom
the audience greeted with an outburst of ap
plause. Having spoken a few Introductory
words Senator Mandcrson began the oration
of the day. It was a review of the early his
tory of the country , a review in fact , of all
the leading events from the time of the colonies
nies down to the present. In speaking of
the late war , in which ho played
no small part , Senator Mander
son referred to the battle flags , and said :
I wisli that instead of the bright new bunt
ing witli which you have decorated your as
sembly grounds and that add such beaut.y
and glory to this interesting scene , I could
bring before you the torn and shrodod Hags ,
whoso tattered folds and splintered staffs
would tell with mute eloquence the story of
Sliiloh and Gettysburg , Stone river and An-
tietuin , Missionary Ridge and Appomattox ;
of the stout arms that carried them aloft in
many a dreadful battle ; of the bravo hands
that seized them as the gallant standard
bearers fell ore they touched the earth , to
bear them on , and yet on to victory.
In speaking of the grave questions now
needing consideration , Senator Mauderson
gave particular attention to the labor
problem and to the question of ( Mvenimentul
control of great corporations. In erasing ho
gave u brief report of the present financial
condition of the country , and gave u rapid
sketch of what the twentieth century may
possibly have in store for us.
At tlio close of the address the vast audi
ence gave tlio distinguished speaker three
rousing cheers nnd the chorus sang "March
ing Through Georgia , " the audience , nud
especially the G. A. II. boys , Joining la the
chorus with much enthusiasm.
AH the regular exercises of the afternoon
wcro dispensed with in honor of the national
holiday. After the address a large per cent
of the 11,000 people who were ujion the
grounds betook themselves to the grove by
the river to listen to an open air concert tlmt
was given there by the 1C. P. hand of Lin
coln and the Sterling band of the state de
partment of the G. A. H. Eleven excellent
selections were rendered in iv manner tlmt
aroused the admiration and applause of the
All afternoon the grove by the river was
u sight to behold. It was literally alive with
people who wcro enjojing themselves In n
variety of ways. Every trco .supported ono
or more hammocks , and every Iminmock-sup-
ported ono or more persons usually more.
Everybody has long known that the ham
mock is a modern picnic indispensable , but
probably very few have scon such a number
and variety of this indispensable , as swung
to and fro in the grove by t'ho river yester
day afternoon. The river was liberally pa-
troni/.ed ; row boats were in great demand

At 8 o'clock tlio pavilion was crowded with
people , who uaticntljr endured the tropical
atmosphere of tlmt building that they might
listen to the war songs sung by Prof.
Palmer's chorus , and tlio addresses made by
several prominent gentlemen. Having called
the meeting to order , Prof. Koj in n few ap-
pron-iut | < ) words thanked the G. A. H. and all
who ha 1 participated In the oxorclacs of the
day fur their presence and aid , nud for tlio
excellent order which had prevailed through
out the entire day. It had been , ho thought ,

was so lacgo and ttio weather * > o uncomforta

curred to mar the plcusuroof the day. Com
mander Henry then took cnargo of the
meeting. The opening prayer was followed

Last year the heavens assisted the Clmutau-
quans to celebrate the Fourth by getting up
a conjunction of Venus and Ucgulua , This
yt > ar they assisted by getting up a brisk
little tuundurbtonn. The whiz uiui bang of
the Unman caudles and rockets , mingled
with the low rumble of thunder and the
black raiii'douds , formed an excellent background -
ground for the Chautuuqua fireworks , ex-
ccpt when fjaohes of lightning shot across
them and put the glare of rocket and cal-
ciunvlitfht to-sluunq by their superior bplen-
dor. Finally a brisk shower of rain-drops

It was the parting serenade of the Sterling

[ tome. The Os.TO pniycr meeting wns omitted
this morning and n conference of ministers
and Christian workers , led by Dr. Duryen ,
was held at 8 o'clock in the hall in the grove.
Dr. Duryca chose for his subject "The Cor
rect Method of Studying and Teaching the
Old Testament. " The reason , ho said , so
many teachers disliked to teach the Old
Testament is that they do not properly under
stand nine-tenths of It , Mnny teachers
abuse this booK. Wo should use the Old
Testament just as wo use n primary text
book In a public school. The book Is all
right so far as it goes , but It does not go far
enough. Christ cauio to esmploto the teach
ings the old testament writers began. Moses
and Elijah are not our examples. Wo have
Jesus for our guldo and example. We hnvo
nlso our Inspired npostles. whatever of the
old ttatamcnt they used Is for us- und wo
should heed it , but whatever part of it they
did not use was meant for the Hebrews and
wo have nothing to do with it. Dr. Dur.vca
then reviewed the old testament ritual nnd
tlio atonement. In answer to the question
whether ho would try to fin , * typos of Christ
In the old testament that are not found in
the now , ho said ho would not. Everything
in the old testament rltral that refers to
Christ has boon transferred to the new
testament ami wo can IIml It there. In no
other class at the assembly Is there so much
note taking us nt the conforctice of Chris
tian workers. Everybody seems desirous of
jotting down the main points of the excellent
instruction given by Dr. Duryca. It is safe
to say that ho Is ono of the most thorough
and cftlclont bible students muong Chau-
t.iuquu workers , and ho Is generally acklowl-
edgcd to bo a superior instructor in bible
At It o'clock Prof. Holmes met his ad
vanced normal class at the hall In the grove.
of ' lesson "Christ
The subject to-day's was
as n Teacher. " Christ was not only n teacher ,
but ho taught moro truth than any other
teacher has ever taught. All the teaching
and preaching that have been done since his
time have been only elaboration of what Ho
taught. The truth , that Ho has
taught is of moro Importance
than any other system of truth
and the effect of the teachings of Christ sur
passes the cfTcct produced by any other
teaching. Christ's system of truth must bo
learned from Christ himself , nud the com
mission to teach the truth that Christ taught
must also come from Him.
All the forenoon exorcises occurred as
usual to-day , but this afternoon the exorcises
wcro somewhat changed. Instead of the
lecture at 2 o'clock there was a concert by
Dr. Palmer's chorus and a few select musi
cians. Tills evening Dr. Duryca lectured on
"Tlio Intelligence of Ailimuls nnd What Tt
Implies. " To-morrow afternoon the C. L. 5.
C. of Crete will give a reception to all mem
bers of the class of 18SS. The reception
will be held in the lawyers' building , und a
good time Is anticipated.
To-morrow is recognition day , and elabo
rate preparations are being made for tno
recognition ceremonies. It may bo well to
give an outline of the order of proceedings
and the meaning of the different arches that
form a part of the recognition service.
At 1:50 : p. in. the bolliwill strike the signal ,
nnd the undergraduate classes of 'S'J , 'CO , ' 01
nnd 02 will march to the Congrcgrational
building to escort the class of 'SS on their
way to pass the arches. Tno flower girls
will , at the same signajf march to the hall in
the grove and form in- open ranks by the
arche ? . The arches will bo placed On the
cast side of the platform at n distance of
twenty-live feet from each other and from
the platform. ,
At 2 o'clock the procession will move from
the Congregational building across the green ,
to the terrace above thp- hall in the grove ,
where it will rest until , the class of ' 83 re
turns from tlio hall in'the grove. The class
of 'SS will pass down tlio terrace through the
These arches have a pjcullar significance.
The "golden gate" means the way Is opened
after lour years of reading , writing and
nnd waiting. This gate typifies tlio best
knowledge there Is. The meaning
of the heavy rustic arch , is natirre's
full grown rugged strength. The evergreen
arch is a symbol of memories in life's Jour
ney that will never fade. The floral arch
has this lesson : God has made nothJng on
His footstool more beautiful than Imwcrs.
They speak of u bright present , und are the
prom'.sca of a fruitage yet to come , when the
harvest is gathered homo.

MASON CITV. la. , July G. [ Special Tele
gram to Tun Hen. ] A terribly devastating
cyclone swept down with demoniac fury upon
n number of the towns nlong the Chicago ,
Milwaukee & ' St. Paul road yesterday.
Uuthvcn was the first place struck by the cyclone -
clone , nnd it is Impossible to estimate the ex
tent of damage done. The storm came up
rapidly , but gave no premonition that the
results of Its advent would prove so dovas-
Latlng , or Us onward inarch so freighted with
dreadful consequences. The extent of terri
tory over which the storm swept was about
one hundred miles in length and nearly a
mile in width. To the farming community
along this tract the blow is such a ono that
Lhey cannot soon recover from Its effect. To
many it has blotted out of being the arduous
tolls of n lifetime , sweeping before It the ac
cumulation of years of toll , rendering as
naught the fruits of well directed industry.
Up to thG present time , strange to relate ,
not a single death to u human being has been
reported , but hituiy horses and cattle were
either killed by the lightning or suffered
death from the effects of tlio wind. At
Huthvcn , in .almost . a moment of time , the
clouds assumed u funnel shape and remained
apparently motionless , as if suspended from
the ho wens , The storm then burst in Its
fury , the clouds making four successive dips
inside the town limits , utterly demolishing
two mammoth hay barns , the poweroftho
elements even being sufficient to overturn an
iron hay press which was standing on the
ground and weighing nearly 1,000
pounds. An agricultural implement
house belonging to Hoot & Walker was
wrecked ; Traffy Bros.1 livery barn , the
Kirkwood hotel , the M. E. church and Tom
Gift's dwelling wcro all leveled to the
ground. Many residences were damaged ,
nnd barns and outbuildings are scattered
over the prairies. One horse was killed in
the street by a scantling being driven com
pletely through his body.
At Emmetlsburg the winds blow terrific ,
but did not present the appearance of a
cyclone. Tlio Catholic church , the IJurling-
ton , Cedar Ua'ilds & Northern depot and a
number of residences were destroyed.
At Cylinder another largo hay barn nnd a
water tank were completely demolished , and
pieces of boards from the buildings were
stuck in the ground covering an area re
sembling plus in a cushion. At Whitamoro
some buildings were blown down , u number
unroofed and lumber badly shaken up. The
farming country between Whitnmore and
Uuthycn looks desolate. The corn , which was
promising , is shorn to the ground , and other
grain is badly damaged.
The storm jumped over a section of coun
try cast from Whitamoro , next visiting the
southern part of this county. At Meservy.
Kcnkcs' store building was blown down and
the largo cattle barn belonging to Jake
Nissen was demolished. At Helmont the
Burlington , Cedar Itapids & Northern depot
and a number of business and residence
buildings were shattered. Uouto Agent
Elliott who came up from the southern part
of the state to-day over the Iowa Central ,
states that the crops ulonir the road are dam
aged to the extent -MOO.OOO. . The storm ,
financially , was ono of the worst that ever
visited Iowa. *

July fi. [ Now York Hcr-
nld Cable Special to Tun Bii.J
Many papers remark upon the extraordinary
spectacle at the Gettysburg reunion , details
of which have been cabled In full to the
European edition of the Herald and to the
English papers In brief. The London Times
observes : "Gettysburg differs from n host
of collisions between the north and south ns
Lho most obstinate , and nearly ns bloody as
any battle fought. None have over ques
tioned that If tlio confederates did not gain
tholr object , they saved their honor abso
lutely inviolate. It was a drawn battle in
which the palm of invincible resolution was
equally divided. Had their leaders required
them , the combatants , It was clear , wcro
iircparcd to dlo one ami all whcro they stood.
The Hold may bo visited by the sur
vivors and their comrades in other
lights , nud by younger country
men without distinction of politics ,
liast or present. None are obliged , what
ever their sentiments on account of contro
versies , to find in its reminiscences subject
matter for jcalousyor anger. The whole tale
Llioy can construe is a monument of the uni
versal dogged manliness of the American
character. Americans have inherited the
Anglo-Saxon bull-dog Instinct , and In some
respects huvo oven improved upon or exag
gerated It. Tliis temper was manifested with
formidable intensity nt Gettysburg in 1S03 ,
and the American people are eager In 1SS3 to
recall the traces. But item forgive as well
as light , nnd take as much pleasure in the
display of the ono quality as of the other. If ,
to souio minds , a spot on which 50,00 , ) human
lives wore sacrificed , may seem an equivocal
scene for a festival , they who have been
holding it , at all events , have redeemed its
grizzly horrors by a generous burial in its
soil of old grudges and old spites. "

alert and aggressive , meeting argument by

suit as generally as would some of the others
talked of , bnt it is so far superior to that ot
the democrats that republicans generally
wheeled into litio and by degrees the dis

their intention of supporting H-irrison. The

many of them Cleveland is I'orsonally dis
