The Prospect For Republican Action
on the Tariff.

From AVatthlngtun.
Victory hi Sight.
WAHHINOTON , 1) . C. , Sept. IS. I
General W. W. Dudley , treasurer of tlio
republican national commltteo , was hero to
day In conference with Senator Allison anil
others In reference to the tariff and other po
litical legislation. Just before ho left the
capltol for the railway station on ills return
to Now York , I asked him what the outlook
was for the tariff bill.
"Oh , " said ho , "our people arc going to re
port a , bill in the senate just as soon as they
can complete It. They will not permit thorn-
selves to bo forced Into any premature action
by the democratic.-yell in cither house. "
"Will it be reported to the senate before
congress adjourns I"
"If the adjournment does not como too
noon , and I do not expect to'sco congress dis-
Bolvo for some weeks yet. The republicans
In tno senate are opposed to adjournment
nt least till they get their tariff bill on the
calendar. That may take them only two or
three weeks and It may require as many
months. The senate commltteo on finance is
working every day on Its bill , plying hear
ings and putting the bill in shape to meet the
approval of not only all the republican sena
tors , but the country. They have not yet
consumed one-third as much tiniuastho coin-
jnittco on ways and means did to prepare the
Mlllsblll. I don't believe the democrats in the
house will aifi-eo to adjourn. I hope they
won't. Wo urn willing to let congress re
main in session and by It wo will help our
selves to elect a majority of the next house.
Wo nro worsting them every day in debate. "
"What is the general outlook I" I asked.
"Encouraging beyond all expectation , " was
the reply. "Wo are sure to carry Now York
Huro as fate and our reports from Indiana ,
Connecticut and Now Jersey are exceedingly
bright. Wo will win by an increase of votes
cast and by direct changes from Cleveland.
They are Hocking to us by thousands in Now
York. The light between thu Hill and Cleve
land factions there is helping us. Hut the
tariff and other issues are making us the
most votes. "

Senator Paddock has succeeded In Induc
ing the senate committee on appropriations
to Incorporate In the general dellciency ap
propriation pill. $50,000 for the establishment
of an Industrial and educational institution
at Salt Lake City for dependent women who
wjsh to escape from Mormonism. The house
will undoubtedly demand that this bo stricken
out , but Senator Paddock believes ho will
succeed in keeping It in the bill.
Kepresentntlvo Morrell of Kansas , who
yesterday introduced in the house a rcsolu-
-tion calling upon the secretary of the inte
rior to know whether , as charged editorially
in Tun Bni : , and other newspapers ,
it Is true that intimidation , misrepresenta
tion , or any kind of ulterior iuUuenco have
been exercised in procuring signatures to the
treaty throwing open the Sioux Indian res
ervation to settlement , said to-day that ho
expected n partisan reply. Mr. Merrill be
lieves THIS linn was right in its arraignment
pf the Sioux commission , but believes that at
this time in a campaign It would not bo rea
sonable to anticipate a report which would
inculpate democratic officials.
A letter wus received hero to-day from Rep
resentative Stcelo , of Indiana , which has
given much courage to the republicans in
congress who wore doubtful as to the result
In that state. Steolo's district is about 1,200
democratic , but , although ho is an active and
uhlllnchlng republican , ho has managed to
carry It by from 100 to 400 majority for six
years. He generally takes n discouraging
view of the outlook , is never over sanguine ,
nnd , therefore , his opinion Is regarded as
valuable. He writes that ho will bo ro-
Clectcd by a largely-increased majority and
that the stnto is euro to give Harrison
its electoral vote. Major Stcelo says
further that ho never saw so much determin
ation on the part of the republicans to carry
Indiana , and that there is much more in
"stato prldo" than the democrats are willing
to admit. General Hovoy , republican can-
illdnto for governor , returned to bis seat In
the house to-day , after two weeks' canvas
sing in the the state , and ho snys Indiana
was never botor organized by both parlies ,
and that there nnvor was so much interest in
politics there as at present. Ho believes that
It Is only a question of majority nnd fixes
10,000 as the minimum for Harrison and
Morton in the state.
People in Washington wore amazed on
reading the statement made by Senator
Payne , of Ohio , the other day , to the effect
.that ho illd not now own anil novcr did own
any stock In the Standard Oil company. For
years it has gone without saying that the
Paynes wore the soul of the great monopoly.
The family's wealth is estimated all the way
from $25,000,000 to fW.CKW.WK ) , whllo the cap
ital stock of the Standard OH company IB es
timated at anywhere from S-IO.IOU.UOO to fSO-
000,000. Some of the most Intimate friends
of the Payne and Whitney families are ex
plaining how it is that Senator Payne is not
a stockholder in the company , and yet Is
deeply Intelestcd It it. They say that for
many years his entire estate has been
handled by his son Oliver , and that in his
name all of the stock in the Standard com
pany has been carried. It is no secret that
the Payne family controls the Standard. Oil
organisation , whether it carries in its own
nnmu the Block which appears upon the
books , or whether it appears in the nurno of
other persons.
The manner of utterance of no man in the
Bonato has attracted so much attention ns
that of Senator Hoar while ho was Indulging
In repartee with Senator Payne on last Fri
day , and while the Standard. Oil company
was under discussion. The way In which
Senator Hoar repelled the indignation of
Senator Payne , when he charged that gentle
man with being a stockholder In the Standard
Oil company , wus severe. Senator Hoar has
a large , smooth , motherly-looking face , with
powerful facial expression. When ho held
out his two hands in a beseeching and at the
same time expostulating uianucr and said
that ho could not see why any man should
lose his courteous bearing and usual placid
temper simply because it was Intimated that
ho was connected with the Standard Oil
company ; that ho did not know before that
it was a crime , or even reprehensible , for u
jnan to own slock in the corporation , oven
though It was a monopoly ; that If there was
Odor connected with thu Standard Oil com
pany it had been created by utterances of
the democratic party ; that the Standard
company had been pointed out by the leaders
Of the democratic party ns the chief
trust of the United States , and. the
greatest monopoly under the American re
public , Senator Payne roared with anger.
If a man was to bo condemned because ho
was connected with this administration , and
Bt the same tlma held stock in the Standard
Oil company ho was to bo condemned ov men
connected with the administration Itself , and
those who wcro managing the douiocrutla
party. The affected soothing manner in
which Air. Hoar assured Mr. Payne that no
personal fouling was intended on his part
When ho stated that ho thought the senator
from Ohio waa connected with this company ,
and that'much-as ho ( Mr. Hoar ) opposed the
formation of monopolies and trusts intended
to control the markets , ho did not cast reflec
tion upon the individuals in their personal
capacity who were connected with them , was
painful in the extreme. The vcncrablo sen
ator from Ohio fairly writhed nnd groaned
with agony , yet ho could not retort towards
uttered In the sympnthetlo and yet at the
same time mocking terms of the shrewd
* ankce. It was nn Instance of nblrd befoul
ing its own nest , when Mr. P.tync , nt the
outset of the debate , Hew to his feet and de
nounced Senator Hoar in person for having
intim.itcd that ho ( Mr. Payne ) was con
nected with the Standard Oil company. The
democrats are very free to denounce trusts ,
but when the leading men In their party nro
shown to bo connected with them there Is a
change of front that is absolutely refreshing
if not amusing.
Members of both national political commit
tees arriving hero dally from Now York for
the purpose of consulting their leaders In
congress , are uniform in the statement that
there will bo moro oratorical talent imported
to the various states during this campaign
than was ever known in a political contest.
It is stated that there will bo over two thou
sand strangers who will speak alouo In In
diana , and that the number of non-residents
who will talk politics In Now York cannot bo
estimated , as the democrats alone have over
twenty-nine hundred of them on their
books. The number of residents who will
speak In these states are almost beyond
computation. Every county has a dozen or
moro men who will speak to a greater or less
extent before the election. Add to this the
millions of dollars which will bo expended
for tariff nnd other political literature , and
the cost of the campaign directly or indi
rectly , it will be scon , in enormous. A n em
ber of the house who has made llgurcs closely
upon this subject estimates that the time
and money which will bo expended in this
campaign will bo worth more than MO.OOl-

Talk of n London Paper on the Quebec
[ Copi/rfflM 1SSS by James Gordon ntnnett. ' ]
LONDON , Sept. 18. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to Tim BEE. ] The Dally
News has u belligerent leader upon the
Quebec threats for secession and annexation.
It begins : "Wo nro evidently on the eve of
a period of trouble in Canada. The failure
of the fisheries treaty nnd throats of com
mercial retaliation , now so very near fulfil
ment on the part of the United States , have
excited public feeling throughout the entire
Dominion. "
It adds : "Quebec is evidently talking to
England rather than to the Dominion In these
propositions to throw in its lot with the re
public on the other side of the border. The
lunguaga of that kind from Quebec is un
happily nothing novel. H has long been re
marked that the division between Fionch nnd
Urltlsh Canada grows sharper every day. "
The article concludes thus : ' 'Tho situa
tion is a grave one , but It ought not to bo be
yond the resources of statesmanship. Wo
must look it full In the face. Its dlflicultlos
and its hardships are enough. "

A Ulshop in Trouble Tor Confirming
Her nt Her Homo.
UALTIMOIIE , Sept. 18. When Blsho * ) Unn-
dolph first assumed charge of the Virginia
episcopacy he was , perhaps , the most popu
lar of all the Protestant Episcopal heads in
this country. Of late , however , his people
do notspcak of him as affectionately ns here
tofore : indeed , they condemn what they
term his snobbishness. The change of feel
ing came about in this way :
A short time ago Amelia Klvcs-Chanlcr
mndo known her deslro to bo confirmed. All
the members of her family have always been
devout members of the Episcopal church , and
assisted materially in the building of the
pretty church near Castle Hill , Albormnrlo
county , the seat of the Hives family. It was
naturally supposed that the authoress would
avail herself of the opportunity when Ulshop
Randolph In his visitations should reach the
district. Instead of this , however , she sent
n request to the bishop that the services be
performed at her residence. ' 1 ho rites had
novcr been conferred in this manner before ,
and the good bishop hesitated. Finally , however -
over , ho consented , and ono line day pro
ceeded to Cnstlo Hill and performed the rites
of continuation. When this became known
to the members throughout the dioccso it
created much talk and adverse criticism , and
the bl'hop Is roundly censured for yielding
to the whim of the fair authoress. This ex
clusive continuation is said to bo the first
in the history of the Protestant Episcopal
Strange Marrlago or Annie Killer , a
Providence , 11. I. , Hello.
PnovincNTE , U. I. , Sept. IS. The mar
riage of Miss Annie Huler , daughter of
Sidney Hider , the well known book pub
lisher , to a coachman here has created n
social sensation. The ceremony was per
formed , it seems , last April , but only last
week was it known to the young woman's
parents. Miss Hider is n handsome young
woman nnd has always been popular in the
social sircles in which she was known on the
West Side. She was the patentee of n "blue
flame" firewood , which caused much talk at
the hearthstones of fashionable folks hero
last winter , and she had for her financial
backer Dr. Uudko. The young woman was
enterprising and n factory was started in
New Hedford , where the peculiarly illu
minated firewood was made. Dr. Hadke's
coachman , William Howard Morgan , had
many missions between Miss Hider nnd Dr.
HadKe. Thus ho came in contact with Miss
Hider a great deal , and in time ho learned
the secret of the "blue llamo" wood. Ho
also learned to like Miss Hldcr , and the ac
quaintance ripened into love. Since the
marriace Miss Hider has beenlldng at home ,
but now she asserts her determination to go
with her husband nnd publicly announce her
marriage. The Hider family is greatly dis
turbed. Miss Hldcr , who is twenty-two
years of age , is highly educated , and at onetime
time she was engaged to a United States
naval officer , who met his death on a war
ship at New Orleans about three years ago.
Morgan is un undersized Englishman , twen
ty-four years old , and a year and a half ago
ho rearhcd this city , walking part of the way
from New York.
A Perplexing Doctrinal Snarl the
Theme For Discussion.
MINNEAPOLIS , Sept. IS. The doctrinal
snarl in which the American theological pro
fessors have become involved with the school
at Krupp , Germany , was still the thcmo of
discussion at the meeting of the Lutheran
conference this morning. A resolution was
adopted , the gist of which was that the mis
sionaries for the field in America should rc-
celvo their theological education in
the school at Philadelphia. The com
plaint made against the missiona
ries educated in Germany was that
they did not understand American institu
tions , and were not able to enter into the
spirit of American life. Another matter
which aroused considerable discussion was a
letter from the Michigan synod , announcing
its withdrawal from the council. The bono
of contention between the synod and the
council Is the interpretation of what is known
ns the Galesburg rule , relating to the ex
change of pulpits. The Sunday school com
mittee made n report , m which they outline
the course of instruction for the use of Sun
day schools.
The AVabasli Troubled.
CHICAGO , Sept. 18. Inquiry at the general
offices of the Wabash railroad in this city
this morning by Associated Press reporters
elicited the statement that the threatened
strike of switchmen and cleaners at St. Louis
on account of the Chicago , Burling
ton & Qulncy road having se
cured track privileges and n stabling
contract for its engines , is not in the switch
yards of the Wabash proper , but concerns
the division of the old Wabash system run
ning west from St. Louis , which was taken
out of the receiver's hands some time ago
nnd recognized independently under the
name of the Wnbash & Western. The
trouble arises from the granting by this
road of track facilities over about forty
miles of road making the connection between
the Hurllngton lines and St. Louis.
ST. Louis , Sept. 18. General Manager
Hayes , of the Wabash & Western , was seen
by a reporter this morning in reference to
the threatened strike owing to the contract
the Wabash has with the Hurllngton for the
handling nnd housing of the incoming en
gines of that company and the refusal of the
Wabash brotherhood employes to touch the
boycotted locomotives. Ho said ho did not
apprehend any serious troubles.
Adams Tolls of Big Crops.
BOSTON , Sept. 18. [ Special Telegram to
TUB BEE.J President Charles Francis
Adams , of the Union Pacific , has returned
from Oregon. Ho says : "Tho Union Pacific

braska has the biggest corn crop she has ever

Yellow Fever Spreading.
WASIIINOTON , Sept. 18. The secretary of

Surgeon General Hamilton dated at Camp
Perry , Fla. , September 17 , which
snys Dr. Posoy has yellow fever ,
contracted at McClenny. Three cases
are reported at Gainesville , and there

Carlisle Hcnominutcd.
CINCINNATI , Sept. 18. The session of the
democratic convention of the Sixth Ken
tucky district to-day in Covlngton was an in
teresting occasion. The crowd was fnr be
yond the limit of the accommodation , al
though there was no shadow of doubt as to
the netlou of the convention. Mark Gray of
Grant county , Kentucky , placed John G.
Carlisle in nomination , and Theodore Hallcm
made an eloquent speech seconding the mo
tion. The nomination was made with great
enthusiasm , and upon Carlisle appearing
there was an outburst of applause lasting
several minutes. Speaker Carlisle said :
"Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Con
vention : 1 scarcely Know in what terms to
thank the democracy of this district for its
action to-dny. Twelve years ago I was nom-
"natcd for congress in this hull and since
: hon the democracy of this district
; ms chosen mo six times in succession to rep
resent the in the houho of representatives of
the United States. No man could bo insen
sible to such devotion on the part of his
friends , and I assure you , gentlemen , that I
feel most profoundly my sense of gratitude
and obligation to you and the people whom
you represent. [ Cheers. ]
"I accept your nomination nnd shall en
deavor to meet ns many of you as possible
between this and the election , although my
duties at Washington prevent me from giv
ing much attention to my own district. I not
only accept your nomination , but 1 endorse
to the fullest extent the resolutions you have
Just adopted except that part of them as re
lates to mo personally. [ Applause. ]
"Tho grcnt question before the country Is
the question ol federal taxation. It makes
but little difference whether I nm elected to
congress or not. but It is of overwhelming
Importance to the people that the next house
of representatives should bo democratic [ Ap-
plaubol , mid that the next president should
be a democrat also. [ Cheers. ] Two political
[ urtics have nominated their candidates nnd
made formal declaration of their principles ,
ind you will bo called on next November to
decide between them. The republican party
has chosen as its standard bearer Mr. Harri
son , a respectable lawyer of Indianapolis , for
president , and for vice president Levi P.
Morton , a very rich banker in Wall street.
The democratic party has selected a true ,
tried and incorruptible president who now
fills the chair ; n man who has brought the
administration back to the ways of the con
stitution and given to the people a clean ,
conservative and faithful administration of
the law. [ Checrsl. With him they have
associated Mr. Thurman , [ cheers ] who for
many long years has been the best and truest
representative of our western democracy. It
is declared In the democratic platform that
unnecessary taxation is unjust taxation , and
by that declaration the democratic party will
stand or fall in this contest. "
Mr. Carlisle then explained how , nt the
rate of $10,000,1)00 ) per month , the present
enormous surplus had accumulated ; how the
democratic party had unsuccessfully strug
gled to devise schemes by which the surplus
could be gotten rid of and the money again
circulated among the people , where it be
longed. The republican party had substan
tially declared its platform in favor of reduc
ing the revenue by increasing the taxes.
[ Applnuso and laughter. ] Ho compared
these declarations to n proposition that a
man can make himself rich by picking
ills own pocket , or that ho can increase his
wealth by imposing taxes upon himself.
[ Applause. ] He then criticised Blaine for
giving a quasl-endorscmcnt of trusts on the
plea that they are private affairs in which
neither the president nor anybody else had
any particular right to interfere. Larceny ,
he said , is also a private affair a very pri
vate affair , [ applause ] and yet it is not sup
posed improper to interfere with it by law.
Ho thought that Hlainc's position on top of
Carnegie's coach in Scotland , and hobnobb
ing with the nobility of Erin , not a very
good place from which to view the interests
of America. [ Applause. ]
He had been told that this system of taxa
tion is continued on the ground"that it in
creases the rate of wages of the American
laborer. There nro two other facts which
show conclusively that this argument is not
sound. In the first place it is a conceded
fact that there is ns much difference between
the rate of wages paid in this country , to la
borers engaged in the same occupation in
different parts of the country , ns there is be
tween the rate of wages paid hero and in
European countries , and yet the same tariff
law prevails throughout the whole United
States. [ Applause. ] He claimed by exam
ination of labor statistics from 1850 to 1880 ,
It would be found that in some cases as high
ns 100 per cent moro is paid in New York or
Philadelphia. If tariff regulated wages , ho
submitted that the rate of wages would bo
the saruo and would .be uniform In the saruo
occupations throughout the United States
under the same tariff. Going u step farther ,
ho fcaid that the rate of wages in this country
In unprotected industries is larger on an
average than the rates of wages paid in this
country in protected industries. Another
fact is that since 1810 , when the English corn
laws were repealed , and England practically
entered upon what our republican friends
call free trade , the rates of wages there have
increased from 50 to 75 and oven us high as
100 per cent in the same occupations. Ho
asked them whether the saino increase could
be traced in this country in the sumo time.
It is said that if the present duties nro re
duced this country will bo overwhelmed with
foreign cheap goods , and all our manufactur
ing nnd mcrchantilo industries will bo
ruined. "Why , gentlemen , " said ho , "if all
the ships in the world were employed contin
uously bringing gouds'.from Liverpool to New
Yoik it would take them two years to bring
us much as a single railroad in the country
carries in one year. If all the Cunard
vessels plying between Boston and Now Yokk
and European ports wcro to bo employed it
would require them seventy-five years to
bring to tills country as much goods as the
Pennsylvania railroad carries in one year.
[ Applause. ]
"No man objects to u rate of taxation ,
whether It be by the general government or
state or municipal government , necessary to
raise a sufficient amount of revenue to de
fray all thn proper and legitimate expenses
of the public administration , but when the
tax drummer has taken from the people a
sufficient amount of their earnings to accom
plish this purpose ho should takn his hands
out of th ir pockets. That is , the democratic

A Prominent Politician Predicts n
Clean Republican Sweep.
NEW YOIIK , Sept. 18. [ Special Telegram
to Tun BEE.I M. Hubbard , secretary of
state of Connecticut , has just returned from
a trip to Columbus , O. , where ho attended
he national encampment of the Grand Army
of the Republic. Ho met people from all
> arts of the country nnd had n long opporlu-
ilty to learn the drift of public sentiment ,
lie had n long conversation with Governor
oraker , who has recently been making
speeches in Indiana. Governor Forakor said
10 thought the republicans would carry that
stnto by a very substantial majority , although
lie indications were that the democratic man
agers entertained some wild and
wicked notions of colonizing the state
'rom Kentucky nnd Ohio. But it is hardly
Ikoly that they will do so , because of In
diana's very rigid election law , and It Is now
me of the most difficult states in the country
n which to practice illegal voting. Governor
Forakor further said ho felt quite certain
every northern state would cast republican
votes. He concluded bv saying that liun-
Ireds of democrats in Ohio had proclaimed
opposition to the free trade policy of the ad
ministration ,
"Did you have nn opportunity to make any
observation in New York ! "
"Yes ; I stopped nt several of the largo
towns. The workingmen throughout the
state seem to bo thoroughly nroused to the
mportaneo of tlio tarifl Issue , nnd fool if
they would avoid a readjustment of wages
and the acceptance of a lower scale they
must go to the polls and vote for
flnrrison , Morton nnd protection. They
rtnow the question of wages is in their
own hands , and I take it nro
too sensible to vote for Cleveland , free trade
ind low wages. In every town In which I
stopped I found that many large.enthusinstio
intl-froo trade clubs had been formed , and
, hnt n great many persons who had always
voted the democratic ticket were among the
most enthusiastic members. In Buffalo I
found the republicans thoroughly organized
ind full ot enthusiasm , nnd 1 was informed
jy prominent democrats , as well as republi
cans , that Cleveland would fail to carry the
state of Now York. In Saratoga I talked in
an informal way with many leading politi
cians of both parties , and found that the
irovailing opinion there was that Cleve-
nnd's chances to cairy New York were
about ono in fifty. I believe the state is safe
'or Harrison and Morton. "
A Chicago Postal Hmployu Dismissed

Cnicvao , Sept. 18. [ Special Telegram to
THE Br.i.J : The political sensation of the
lour is the decapitation of U. A. D. Wil-
janlts , superintendent of malls in the Chicago
xjstofllce , by order of First Assistant Post-
nastor General Stevenson. Mr. Wilbanks
ins not for several months past been on
'riendly terms with the postmaster , and it
las been generally conceded that it was Wil-
janlts who furnished much of the Informa-
,1011 used by the local papers against Mr.
Judd regarding the mismanagement and inefficiency -
efficiency of this office. Again , it is said that
Mr. Wilbanks was guilty of "pernicious nc-
.ivity" in politics about the time of the St.
Louis convention. Ho has nlways been re
garded as a very shrewd politician , and
ihereforo the postmaster's victory is re
garded as more signal.
Postmaster Judd was in high spirits when
seen by a reporter this evening. Ho said :
"Mr. Wilbanks was removed for gross
nsubordination. For a long time ho has as
sumed nn attitude of independence of the
postmaster , and has repeatedly disobeyed
orders in a very marked manner. Ho has
also been in the habit of receiving visits
from persons , bitter enemies of the post
master , and with that class of persons ho
has for a long time conspired to defame the
postmaster and to sccuro his removal. For
months past ho has fed reporters of the
dally press with falsehoods against the post
master and in many ways has shown his dis
respect and Insubordination. He also did
all ho possibly could to influence certain
gentlemen at Washington ngalnst mo , and
lie has openly avowed his efforts to secure
my removal from the office. Ho has been
somewhat encouraged in what ho has done
by gentlemen who hnvo been seeking the po
sition 1 hold nnd by their interested adher
ents. "
"Thero is little necessity to ask for a
reason , " said n well-posted official. "Tho
democratic administration had to cither con
demn or vindicate Postmaster Judd. Mr.
Wilbanks had taken issue with his superior's
actions in office. Then came the revelation
that Mr. Esher , Mr. Judd's law partner , was
collecting money for campaign purposes from
each employe of the office. When the matter
was published Mr. Wilbanks maintained
that It was true , and denounced the meas
ures taken by the postmaster's partner to
raise the wind. That is the secret of the
matter. Mr. Wilbanks took issue with Judd ,
and the department , in upholding and vin
dicating the postmaster's course , was
obliged to punish the superintendent of
mails. " _

she has spent her life , setting forth
tlio stops which led her to her belief
that the incomparably superior advantages
enjoyed by the American woman ns n wife ,

sister were due to the American protective
system. She contrasted the manufacturing
and farming localities of Germany , England ,
Scotland and Ireland with the conditions of
life here. She did not profess to bo a special
ist in regard to the tariff , but had read the
debates in congress and noticed that where-
over the wage worker was referred to it

ent. Her companions testified universally
