'Jho senate committee on finance nl Its
meeting to day decided that the senate sub
Hlllulu for tbo Mills tariff bill , shall bo
pushed to a vote , and that II shall take prcc-
( dcnco over all other business before the
senate. At the Informal healing represent
atives of the culloij ami the cooperage inter
estswcro heard. Shortly before - o'clock
Senator Allison , for the committee , called
up the Hubititute , and asked Unit the formal
reading of iho bill bo dispensed with , but
Senator Vance , of Noith Carolina , objected ,
and tl.o clerk was p 'occodin with the read
ing , when Mr. Vance announced that the
object in dcmundhig thnt the bill bo read
wns to secure delay , ns It was desirable that
there should bo an understanding among
the democrats us to what amendments u ill
bo offered. This , ho said , could not bo deter
mined befoio J o'clock to morrow afternoon
Senator Allison said that the republican
members of the senate would not interpose
obstructions , under these circumstances , but
that they would bo willing lo giant the delay
desired , and with this understanding tliafun-
ale adjoin ncd until lo morrow. Sovci.il le-
publican mcmbcis of the senate committee
on finance informed jour cotiespondcnt this
afternoon llmt the programmo adopted pro
vlilcs that the bi'l ' shall bo first discussed bi
sections , and Unit amendments slnll booted
on seriatim. After Ibis is done it will again
bo considcied by sections and additional op
portunlty will bo given to amend. It is the
expectation of the republic ins that the final
vote will bo tulvcn before tlio holidays ,
unless tlicio nro evidences of factional
opposition on Iho p.ut of Iho democrats
It is not thought that the ilemociatic son-
ulors will try lo ohslruct , ami ns a conss-
IJUUIILO , those in cliaigc of the measure ex
pect Unit it will bo ready to send back lo Iho
house befoie the holidays The chances aio
that the bill w 111 bo modified in several im
portant paitieulais , which will win foi it the
hiippoi t of some of the southern dcmocrals
who voted for the Mills bill Among other
things pioposed is a modification of the sugar
schedule so Unit the cut on that stapla will
fall a little bolowr Iho figure proposed by Iho
bill as il camu from tbo finance committee.
Mr. Mills , chairman of the committee on
ways mid means , haul to d i.v th-it ho thought
that the son.ilo would send over to the house
a bill which would bo lil.ely to meet the ap
proval of ilia i opublic.ins .is a body , as well
us sevei.il demociats. He said further that
ho thought the bill , or rather the biibslilute ,
would scenic enough \otca in the house lo
insure its passage.
Mr Mills diagnosis of Iho situation is en
doiscd b\ the it-publicans They say that
the scniitu bill will doubtless icpc.il the
tobacco tax cntnely , and that if it does it
will ceitainh secuio the snppoit of a num
ber of the demociutic ! mcmbois from the
tobacco growing regions.
It is piudicluu that Iho senate bill will cer
tainly bccuro the suppoit of the cntuo ic-
pnblican side of ihe house , us well as the
votes of tbo four democrats , Sox\don , of
Pennsylvania , Hliss , Merrmtu und Grccman ,
of New York , who voted against the Mills
bill , as well as Handull , of I'cnnsvlvania , and
Foi mi , of Ohio , ono of whom was iibscnt mid
the othei did not vote when Iho bill came up
for action in the houso.
Jtiaingucd further that ns a reduction of
tbo surplus is ono of iho things for which
the doinocials have been contending , there
will be olhels fiom Iho mil Ibcrn and wesl-
ern states who will bo inclined to vote fpr
the substiluto , rather than bee Iho session
brought to an end without the accomplishment
of this object , rurther than this , these who
mipport the rcpuohcan view of tlic siluuliou
say , Hint the vopeal of the tobrcco tuxcj will
bo sure to bccmo the support of the members
from Noitb Carolina , Virginia and Ten
nessee , win fo constituents nio diiCctiy inter
ested in tobacco culture.
Among tlioso who aio counted upon as
suroto suppoit the substitute aioCowles
and . 'obnston ' , of North Caiolina , Wise and
OTarrell , of Viiglmu , and possibly Phelan
nnd Knloo , of Tennessee. Secncy , WilUlns
mid Foi nn , of Ohio , and Hull and ICt men-
trout , of Pennsylvania , are among the list
rmuUcd as sure to veto for iho bomite sul sti-
tuto , rathci than for no bill nt all.
Your eoncspondent made an effort to
nsccitain the due sentiment of the mcmlcis
of tbo house from the tobacco regions this
afternoon , towards the proposition of Iho
t-cnato While the nllonipt was not fruitful
in definite icsiilts , it was evident fiom tbo
talk of Ihouiombc'is seen , thai the icpubliciu
View of the situation is well founded , nrd
t bat there are six or eight democi alic iiicin-
bcmfiom the southern Htatos , who will sup
poit iinj measure which proposes to lelicvo
lliolr people fiom tlio burdens ot the tobiuei
tax , whether the tailtT upon
impoits Is cut in two or al
lowed to rcm lin i s It now
mists , Tor these reasons it s ems certain
that Ihe scmito bill will Im piusedbybjti

The heaviness in the maruot has been at

"to talk about my being a bear at any time

manage , and in this respect my posilion is
different from that of most of my
neighbors. They manage railroads ;
other people own them. Of course , "
Gould continued , "I do not shut my
ejes to what is going on around me. If oth-
ei s w ill build parallel roads w here they ai o
not needed , cut rates and inaugurate railway
wars generally , I must try to get m liters in
such shape that I can stand it. I am willing
and anxious to enter into any arrangement
that will give tlio latlroads paying rates I
have read in thn papers that tlie plan re
cently ngiced to by some of the roads was
mine. It was not. I had anothornnd wholly
difleient plan. Some of the roads now de
cline to adopt the schouiu ou the ground that
it docb not go far enough ; that tates
could not bo maintained under it.
Hut I s lid that if rates could be

"Several business men me now doing

competition in nil lines of business in which
I am engaged , and to point to the fact Hint I
