Cable Special to - Tun Dnc.1 Today being
the feast nf San Jose Increased the usual
difficulty of Interviewing Spanish states
men , who expect to bo petitioned n week'at
cast In advance. I wan enabled to person
ally get the opinion of Senor Sagasta , Mar-
ciuls Vega do Armljo nnd Senor Morot , who
is ono of the best informed liberal states
I llrst called nt the prime minister's resi
dence , but was unable to effect an entrance ,
ns the door bell had been removed in ex
pectation of such visits. I was fortunate
enough , however , to Interview Sagastn on
the stairs as ho was leaving in company with
the ministers of justice nnd the treasury of
the colonies. Ho was tunable , ho said , to
form an opinion until assured of the per
manency of Pilnco Uismarck's retirement ,
of which ho had doubts. lie believed the
chancellor's retirement , if permanent , would
not nffcct the Immediate outlook of European
politics. .
I next saw Senor Morot. "Tho fall of
Prince Ulsmarck , " said ho , "will have no
consequences In Spain. Spain Is quite un
concerned In the Internal policy of central
Europe. "
In splto of the protestations of a self-suffi
cient lackey I sent up my card to the Mar
quis Vcgn do Armljo , who has bean confined
to his house by Illness the past ten days. I
was particularly anxious to see him because
tiot only as minister of foreign affairs docs
ho control the foreign policy of the nation ,
but bccauBO ho hold vtho posl under a liberal
government In 16S3 at the tlmo Prince His-
inarck was thought to bo considering a pol
icy of roapproachmont with Spain , and ac
companied Alfonso to Berlin In Novemberof
the same year , returning when Iho king was
hooted by u Parisian mob. No Spanish
statesman 1ms studied Prmco Uismarck's
policy with greater interest and judgment.
"The resignation x > f Prince Ulsmarck , " said
the marquis , "is no surprise to mo. When
William II. came to the throne I told the
( jcrmnn cmbassador that I did nol think
I'rlnua Qtsmurck would remain In office six
months under his now master. 1
based that belief upon my knowl
edge of the clmractor of ono and what I
Kucsscd'of the character of the other. They
nro qulto incompatible. Prince Ulsmarck
can only exist by subordinating surround
ings to his will. The emperor Is too inde
pendent to tolerate a tutor , to accept the
chancellor as his philosopher and friend and
remain In a state of passive obedienco. It
was Impossible for the young soldier to have
therefore regarded Princa Ulsmarck as In a
condition of posslblo rcsignalion whicn might
become acute , the case becoming acute by
the attitude of the emperor In calling the
Uerlln conference , The chancellor was un
willing to bear the responsibility of so extra
ordinary u measure. The socialist
movement also seemed to brine prob
lems with which ho felt himself
unable to deal In bis own way with n free
hand. As for the conference , I doubt the
ndvantago. The result will probably bo sci
entific rather than practical. The solution
of the serious questions which have given
birth to it can hardly bo obtained by an as
sembly of gentlemen , As to the effect of
Bismarck's resignation on the triple alliance ,
I boliova that for the present there will bo
no change , nor do I believe that the proba
bility of n general European war will bo In
creased. Whether the war party in Ger
many may bo ultimately strengthened , I
cannot von euro to say. By the withdrawal
of so great a factor In European politics wo
must not count mainly on Iho personality of
the emperor himself. "

Secretary Rusk Says Nebraska
Boot Sugar Is a Winner.
Diverse Opinions Amoni ; Ilopubll-
oaiiH on the Tariff Hill Not Atuoli
Chance for National Ilank ,
WASHIXUTON. O. C. , March 20.1
Mr. Uorscy had nn Interview with the sec
retary of agriculture this morning In refer
ence to nn experimental station for the beet
sugar Industry In Nebraska. Mr. Dorsoy's
idea was to appropriate $100,000 nild have the
government make experiments there in the
raising of beets und reducing them , as was
done with sorghum at Fort Hlloy , Kan.
Secretary Kusk In his emphatic way said :
"I would not recommend such n proposition ,
for the reason that the boot sugar Industry Is
not In its experimental stage. It Is a win
ner. Tno fact Is Iho beets raised last year
In Nebraska contain a larger percentage of
saccharine matter than nny raised In any
part of the world. Wo need no experiments ,
ns wo have already established the essential
fact. Wo are trying to secure all the beet
seed posslblo to supply the demands upon
us. Wtiol the pcoplo of Nebraska should do
now Is to orgunlza and establish rclincnes ,
as the beets are of no vnluo without refiner
ies. "
Mr. Dorsoy informed the secretary that
work In this direction had already been
taken up in some' localities. The secretary
thed said further : "lam satisfied that In n
very few years the west will produce the
sugar consumed In this country , nnd moro. "
Mr , Dorsoy Is much interested In this sub
ject nnd grasps every opportunity to further
the interests of this Industry. He expressed
a oolief that It would eventually bo of great
benefit to the Nebraska farmers and would
do much to solve Iho problems with which
ihoy are confronted to.dav.
Nebraska and Iowa present a very good
Idea ot the divisions which are common
ninoni : republicans on the subject of the
tariff bill. At a conference of the Iowa re
publicans last night , which continued till a
late hour , ati expression was made which
threatens to bo the unanimous decision
of the dolognlion ngainsl any reduction
of the internal taxes and In favor of free
sugar. Final action was deferred. Just
across the Missouri , iu Nebraska , the three
representatives and two senators oppose any
disturbance of the sugar duty. The grow
ing beet sugar industry iu their state is the
cause of this position. Thu KcUraskans
would prefer to see all of the Internal taxes
abolished rather than have their boot sugar
industry destroyed. So It goes , each man In
concrcss must stand by the local Interests of
his district. Uut there will bo a tariff bin
finally passed und it will bo very acceptable
lo ihe country.
Anolhor black eye was given national
banking Interests today through the granger
Influence. The house committee on banking
and currency had up bill providing that
national banks may loan 10 uor cent of their
surplus as well as their capital stock to In
dividuals. The opposition to any class of
legislation In favor of national
banks appeared with renewed vigor
In the committee and it was
agreed thai Iho measure should bo reoortod
adversely. It was recommended by' the
comptroller of the currency. The prospects
for any kind of legislation intended to relieve
lievo the national bankintr Intcrosls at the
hands of this congress uro now very small.
The farmers of the far west have poured
Into congress a wagon load of petitions pro
testing against any kind of legislation tend
ing to give an Impetus to national banking
interests and congress seems lo bo thorough
ly frightened.
At a meeting of the house committee ot
agriculture today there was developed the
fact that n favorable report can unanimously
bo-mauo on the Uutterworth bill prohibiting
speculation upon the future delivery of food
products. The light for this measure has
been made by the farmers of Iho country ,
who allege thut the fictitious prices of specu
lators control the actual market price of the
grain stock of the couulry. There is no
doubl that Iho bill can bo readily passed In
eilhor house when It is tnlcan up for consid
eration. Thu enemies of the measure will
have no quarter shown them.
A member of the house stated to your cor
respondent today thai he had made a can
vass of Iho senate upon tbo question of Sen
ator Fry's bill proposing an extension of
the tlmo within which the Union Pni'illo rail
road company shall pay its indebtedness to
the government , and that there was enough
outspoken opposition to guarantee the
measure's failure in the upper branch
of congress. This mnmbor Bays that there
is no doubt that the Union Pacific funding
bill Is dead so far as this congress is con
Very lltllo surprise was expressed this
afternoon when the announcement was
made that the senate by a vote of ! )7 ) to 111
had refused to pass the Blair educational
bill. There has boon n steady decline in the
popularity of the measure for almost two
years. This was duo to the Increase In the
appropriations for pensions und public Im
provements and the Incessant talking for
the bill by Its author. Senator Ulalr has
consumed aboul ton days in debates himself
and many more days woru consumed by
other senators. When the bill was first
voted upon a few years ago It received a
two-thirds majority. The next tiino U
paased Iho senate the majority was' some
what diminished , and now It is no wonder
that the bill perished , It will not likely
twer come up ugafu.
The shout and burst of upplauao which
went up Irom the galleries in the house
today when Mr. Mudd took thu oath of
office and the scat to which ho was elected
sounded very much liken shout of triumph
and the tlrst signal for the downfall of Gor
man's rula In Maryland. The case has a par
ticularly important feature , inasmuch as the
man who unseated Mr. Compton bus been *
for years past Senator Gorman's right hand
man In politics m Maryland. Compton hold
a political ofllco for years and years nnd has
lived at the public trough , nnd when at last
the state ot Maryland grow tired of provid
ing for Him and refused to re-elect mm ,
( Joriuun forced his county to nominate-
Compton for congress and has over since
claimed ho was elected. In fact very tow
cared to run against Mr. Gorman's and Mr.
Campion's roughs , nnd when Air , Mudd con
sented to run It was considered n for
lorn hopo. Hut ovou the people of
that boss-ridden district rebelled and to the
surprise of every ono Mr. Mudd secured n
majority of the votes. Then the peculiar
methods of Gorham came Into play and the
returns were fixed so as to civo Mr. Comp
ton un alleged majority. Today tha galleries
were crowded with Marylandera , both re
publicans and independent democrat ! ) , who
wanted to see justice douo. During Mr.
Cooper's speech they burst forth with up
plnuscs and the sneuuor had a hard time to
bilenca them , when the victory was won
they could not restrain themselves and gave
vent to their joy by shouts nnd loud hand
clapping. The effect of the house's action
will bo a great nnd good ono , and although
tbo legislature has gerrymandered the stuto
this action will flvo encouiageinont to the
independent valors that justice will bo given
them by congress If they can prove as they
did this tlmo that they were cheated or
driven away from the polls , It
was indeed a very great day

BIK : , was the llrst spcimer. Ho
culd ho represented u number ot
German and other societies In thu west. Ho
reviewed the history of Immigration shico
the declaration of Independence and slated
that the question naturally follows : To
what extent shall the right of Immigration ho
extended or abridged by the United .States *
The speaker said he believed
the present laws on thu statute booku
were sufficient for nil practical 'wrposca to
keep out undesirable classes. All that wan
needed was u moro rljtul administration of
the lawn and n closer inspection al ports at
entry. Kvorv cluss which was sought to bo
excluded by the bllh before thu cntnmittco
was already excluded by existing laws.
Aftur thu argument by Mr. Konowator ,
Senator Kvarts of Now York , who is u mom-
uer of the committee , stated that thu posi
tion assumed by Mr. Hosownlcr was the
most reasonable of that advanced by any
one who had spoken upon the subject anil
fully met his own views. Ho said { hat ho
agreed with Mr. Hosowater that there was
no nreosslty for iihirtu ever the Immigration
to this country and Iho only thing needed
was a smut enforcement of tha present
laws. Senator Evarts very clearly expressed
his views when ho said : "Thcro is no use
to amputate a log because there Is n corn on
the tnjB , " which meant Hint ho did not think
that there was any excuse of or necessity
for shutting off immigration to tula country
simply because there were annrohistn , men
dicants , paupers and other ohjectionablo
characters who croup into this country on
rare occasions.
Richard Hnrtholrtt and Simon Wolff , ot
the confaronco of delegates of the German-

sible for tlio mlBgovcriimcnt of Irnlnrid ,
fcjr'iwaortlng that the house wan bored with
Irish matters and for concluding that all de
batable matters were answered by a letter
from his private secretary to the newspa
pers. "It was Mr. Halfour's tone of lofty
contempt , " Sir William continued , "that
kept uilvo the exasperation of Inilnml. "
Though the government might identify ItsclC
with the Times the house was unable to rec
ognize letters to that newspaper as complete
answers on the part of the government to

adopt Sir William's ' tone and manner nml
thut ho will bo certain to conciliate every
