LINCOLN , July 19 ( Special to The lice )
A neighborhood row In South Lincoln over
the respective rights of a cow and some
colored boys now promises to develop Into
a murder case , A man named Ovcrton Is
the victim , and his physician considers the
chances of his recovery very slim Ovcrton

tethered In a vacant lot across which a num
ber of boys wore nccu'lomcd to carry water.
Jamen Hlnton and n lad named Rollins were

Homo difficulty with the cow , and Mr. Ovcr

SCORED THE SENATE
( Continued from First Page )
taken on the adoption of the spec nl order ,
and It was agreed to without division.
CHAIRMAN WILSON RECOGNIZED.
Immediately after the adoption ot the
rule the speaker recognized Chairman Wil
son. Ill Ing In his place on the right of the
chair , his bandaged head making him look
llko a worn and battle-scarred veteran , the
appearance of the chairman of the ways
and means committee was greeted with the
most unbounded enthusiasm on the demo
cratic side , enthusiasm in which the crowded
gallaries joined. The bandage extended down
over Mr. Wilson's eyes , completely blinding
him , but with stoical fortitude , In clear ,
ringing tones , ho delivered his speech In
support of the position taken by the house
conference committee against the senate
amendments. After formally announcing
and reading the report announcing a dis
agreement , Mr. Wilson said : "I move that
the hou o fuither Insist upon its disagree
ment to the senate amendments and nsk for
a further conference from them , and upon
that motion I shall submit a few ctxplana-
loiy remarks to the house.
"It Is true , as the gentleman from Maine
( Mr. Reed ) has just said , that there have
been but two meetings of the full confer
ence on the part of the house and senate.
A tariff bill , of recent jears nt least , nnd
perhaps almost aluajs In the history of this
country , has been a political measure a
measure proposed by one party and resisted
by the other. The pre ent tar ft legislation
does not differ from that character. It was
fully recognized and cordially expressed by
the republican conferees of the senate that
It was the duty of the dominant party In
the two houses , through their own special
conferees , first to try If they could recon
cile their own differences before they brought
to the attention ot the full conference com
mittee their proposed action. While , there
fore , there have been but these two meet
ings of the full conference committee , dally ,
protracted , earnest nnd laborious consulta
tions were held on the pail ot the house
conferees , representing the majority party
In this house , and the senate conferees , rep
resenting the majority party in that house ,
as to the CJ1 amendments , In the hops that
wo might reach some agreement that could
bo reported to the full conference committee
when It should be called together. It Is
because no such agreement has been at
tained , It Is because no such agreement
seems nt present In sight , that we have felt
It was our duty to bring the whole matter
bick to the house nnd receive Its lii'truc-
SENATE WAS HANDICAPPED.
"I desire to bo perfectly frank and as com
plete as possible In any statement I nny
make to the house today , and jet I recog
nize there are some limitations to complete
ness of statement which probably It would
be best for mo to observe nt this stage In
the controversy between the two houses
But I think I may say with truth nnd frank
ness nnd couitcsy that It the conferees of
the senate on the part of the majoilty party
had been ns free and untrammeled as wo
ourselves , with nothlnc to control our ac
tion but our sense of duty to the people nnd
to our party and the house , a tariff bill would
have been agreed upon In ono day's session
that would have been satisfactory to the
democratic party and that would have given
hops and courage nnd enthusiasm to the
American people. ( Applause on the demo
cratic Bide ) Hut , sir , wo were not long In
finding out , greatly to our disappointment ,
that whatever might be the personal opinions
the personal judgment , the strong personal
wishes of the democratic conferees of the
senate , they came to us somewhat fettered
mid iomowhat limited as to any action they
might agree to upon this bill , either by the
supposed moral obligations of party caucus
or the apprehensions that there were forces
In the senate , however small , jot powerful
enough to resist successfully the passage of
any hill which did not make concessions to
great corporations and trust Interests , that
we , as representing the house did not feel
free on our part to agree to. ( Applause on
democratic side. ) I do not believe , Mr.
Speaker , there would be any dllUculty In
coming to a compromise or nn agreement
upon the vast muportty of the C31 amend
ments proposed to this bill by the senate ,
but there are Important amendments pro
posed by the senate which give to this bill

In Iho main a different character from what
It had when It went to the senate. It Is be
cause of these amendments and because of
the statement made to us in all Mildness
and courtesy , and I might almost saj' In sad
ness , that such was the condition of affairs
at the other end of this capltol , tint unless
this house would agree to accept the senate
bill practically and substantially as it passed
the senate there was to be no tariff legis
lation at this session of congress. Wo did
not feel , representing the house of repre
sentatives , that we could , without a sacrifice
of its dignity and of its equality ns a legis
lative chamnber , respond to any such propo-
slon as that. ( Applause on the democratic
side ) The differences between the bill as It
passed the house and the bill as It comes
back to us from the senate are so marked and
objectionable to tariff reformers In the coun
try generally that we could not , without the
guidance and Instruction of this house , agree
to accept those differences and thus adopt a
different and modified scheme ot tariff re
HOUSE DILL WAS ACCEPTABLE.
"Whatever Imperfections may have at
tached to the house bill , it did seem * to be
accepted by the people of this country as a
fair and substantial performance of the
pledges by which the democratic pirty came
Into power at the beginning of this admin
istration. It was framed upon democratic
lines In the main. It sought In levying taxes
to consider chlclly and primarily the wants
of the public treisury and not the profits
and schemes of great private interests. ( Applause
plauso on the democratic side. ) The bill
which comes back to us from the senate has
not met the approval of the great tariff re
form sentiment of this countiy. The sen
ate voted down the proposal of the commlt-
tee on ways and means for a gradual repeal
of the sugar bounty and a reduction by ono-
hnlf of the duty on refined sugar. The senate -
ate has relntroduced Into the proposed tariff
bill a bugar schedule , which , whether truly
or not , has been accepted by the countrj ,
by the press , by the people ns unduly favorable -
able to the great Sugar trust. It proposes
a duty of 40 per cent ad valorem on nil
grades of sugir , a differential of one-eighth
of a cent upon refined sugar , In addition
to n differential ot one-tenth of a
cent on sugar Imported from coun
tries that pay an export bounty upon their
sugar There Is reasonable ground for dif
ference ot opinion among democrats as to
whether any duty upon sugar should bo
placed In our tariff bill or not. It has
nlwajs been contended by Ihoso who have
been loaders In the great tariff reform move
ments In this country that of all the articles
jlcldliiK large revenue sugir was the one
article upon which an Ideal democratic revenue -
onuo tariff could bo placed. There will bo
substantial agreement , I think , with that po
sition today In the dpmocratlo party , except
for the fact that the frfimers of the McKlnley
bill , in tholr zeal , cutoff , taxation , the larger
part of which wont into the public treasury
In order that they might Increase taxes ,
the laiger part of which went Into the
pockets of their beneficiaries ( Loud applause
on the democratic side ) If the house con
ferees were prepared to recede from the house
position for frc-0 sugar and attempt to agree
upon some revenue taxation for sugar , they
could not , without the mandate of this
house , accept such a brovhlon as that which
Is offered In the senate bill. ( Loud applause
on the democratic side ) . If It bo true , as
slal3d by the gentleman from Ohio ( Mr.
Johnson ) , of which I have Been myself some
confirmations in the press , If It bo true the
great American Sugar trust has grown so
strong and powerful'that It says no tariff
bill can bo passed In the American congress
In which Its Interests are not adequately
guarded If , I bay , that bo true , I hope
this house will never consent to adjourn
ment. ( Great cheering on the democratic
Bide ) . I hope , whatever the fate of the gen
eral tariff bill Is , that this house will not
consent to nn adjournment till It has pissed
a single bill putting refined sugar on the
free list ( Renewed cheers on the demo
cratic sldo ) .
pouaiiT TOR TAiarr REFORM.

taxation. This great question of tariff re
form has been the burning question of Amer
ica for the last three presidential campaigns
The American people have three times voted
for the present occupant of the white house
on the great issue of tariff reform When ,
In 1SS8 , we were defeated by a narrow margin
before the people of this countrj , there Is not
a democrat in all this land who did not feel
on the morning after the election ns en
thusiastic and as determined to press forward
In that light as ho did when the hope of
victory was with him the day before. ( Ap
plause on the democratic side ) It was be
cause of that determination , it was because
of that Brewing enthusiasm , it was because
we felt the thrill of the spirit of American
libei ty Inciting us , It was because we felt
the Incitement of a great moral purpose
which multiplies men by ten , that wo took
up this cause in 1888 and fought for It In
1890 and prevailed In 1892. ( Applause on the
democratic side )
"The American people have given us the
respoiiblbllily. It remains to bo se ° n whether
we also have the power to fulfill their man
date. The bill which passed the house was
not only approved , prepared nnd voted for by
those who arc the Immediately chosen serv
ants o the taxpayers of this country , but It
has been olllclilly endorsed by the president ,
who was chosen by them to carry out this
great leform of the tariff. ( Applause on
the democratic bide. )
"Thus every part ot the machinery of the
United States government today deriving Its
nuthoiltj from the direct vote of the Ameri
can people has endorsed the scheme of tariff
reform proposed hero nnd carried through
this house. No man In this country has been
more interested In the progress and success
ful termination ot this great movement than
the man whom the people selected to lend
them in this great campaign. ( Applause on
the democratic side. ) So far as it was within
his power , I believe bo has never spoken nn
uncertain word as to his position on this
question. While the necessity of his posi
tion has compelled him us a matter of cour
tesy to the two branches ot congress to
remain perfectly quiet during the pi ndoncy
of this bill , ho has felt It to bo his duty to
let the people of the country know exactly
what his position is today , and just an wo
were entering on the great work of con-
foirliiE between the two houses , I had the
honor to recclvo from him a long personal
Utter , which , with his consent , obtained
this morning , I will now send to the clerk's
desk to bo given to the people of this country , "

CHEERS POR REED.
At the conclusion ot the reading of the
president's letter , Mr. Reed , the loader of thu
minority , rose. For almost a minute the
cliL'erH and bhouts of his political colleagues
"I take If for granted , Mr. Speaker , " he
began , "that the gentleman to whom the
letter was addressed to which vvo have Just
ll&tencd has observed all the proprieties
which gentlemen ordinarily observe with re
gard to thoii correspondence , nnd that a let
ter which is marked 'personal' having been
addressed to him , ho has not been guilty of In
any way making It public In tills fashion
without the express consent ot the author.
Heiieo we have hero today the somewhat
remarkable spectacle ot a letter sent by the
president of the United States to the house
ot representatives through his faithful com
mittee on ways and means Tills nee in a to
bo a just reciprocal action on his part , for
the house will recollect the committee on
ways and moans communicated to this house
Its Intention of having an Income tax through
the kindness of the president of the United
States. ( Applause on the lepubllcan sldo. )
Whether this relationship thus Intlmato be
tween a committee of this house and the
president was contemplated by the constitu
tion of thu United Status Is hardly worth the
trouble of Inquiry In the shape In which the
matter now stands before the house Least
ot all would anybody on this Hide Mud fault
with the severe languaga which the president
the democratic president has seen fit to
use about a democratic senate ( Applausa
and laughter on the republican side ) Un
doubtedly his personal Intercourse with the
members of that body and hlu official rela
tions with them have enabled him to put
forth all the strength of a reproof which
that letter contains , nut the transaction ,
as It stands today , Is between them and

truth of history. ( Applause on the repub-
llcin side. ) We 1me no concern with It ex

this affair , however , shows that the ncws-
pnper rumors have had all the truth the
newspaper rumors ever have In icgard to
the relations between this committee of the
house and the president of the United States ,
and It Is shown very clearly the committee
has lit ; direct ons to consent to a sulllclent

the most satisfactory to the people , let the

SENATE HILL IS AN IMPROVEMENT.
"Tho gentleman from West Virginia has
pledged this house amid the uproarious ap
plause of their sldo to stand out agiln t
the senate , to break the fetteis which bind
these gentlemen to their present positions
I have no doubt that what the gentleman
says Is true , that the bouthern gentlemen
In the senate mot their southern brethren
with sadness ; I have no doubt that bonow
tilled tholr hearts , because there are many
amendments of the sointe which It Is fair
to say are Improvements on the house bill
and In the direction of pi election. The bcn-
ate bill h not what this country ought to
have , It Is not such a bill as-would do Jus
tice to Its Industiles , but the house
bill was so bad that almost any change
In an upward direction would bo hot
ter Hut what was the trouble with
these southern gentlemen ? These southern
gentlemen met with the Intcicsta nnd In
dustries of the northern democratic con
ferees , their fellow senators , nnd what Is a
tariff bill but one which relates to the In
terests of the Industries of the country ?
When n distinguished senator hold out for
collars and cuffs and the democratic- party
In the senate marched up to the poor meas
ure of protection on them , that senator was
acting not merely for his own Interests but
for the Interests ot his constllutency. And
If It Is true1 , as Is stated , that he himself was
In any way Interested In business In tint
town not of that kind and that business
would lese Its vigor and life on account of
the destruction of the collar nnd cuff In
dustry , ho was representing his people , be
cause this country nnd its prosperity is
made up of Its Industries and its Interests.

the sacrifice of an Interest and of an In
DRAG DOWN. NOT HAISK UP.
"No , Mr. Speaker , If they did sacrifice
their own states , It was hccauxe they wauled
to sacrifice us wltli the rest still VVOIKO , and
they are engaged today In thu process , no

HOW THE TROUliLE MAY END.
Since It becimo certain that there would
bo a disagreement botwicn the senate and
house on the tariff bill there has been morn
or less discussion among senators as to how
the ( limcultles would ultimately end.
This morning members of the flemocntlo
party in both houses , upon whom will rest
the final determination to bo reached , talked
more fiecly than at any tlmo since the bill
members there was a detoimlnntlon to stand
more fieely than any tlmo since the bill
firm nnd tharo were men who said that a
quorum would be maintained until the senate
Ono of the consei vatlvo democrats of the
house vUiose Judgment Is always sought
in times cf extreme party trials said that
the situation would finally rcsolvo Itself Into
the question of one eighth of 1 cent per
pound protection to refined sugar. This one-
eighth ot 1 cent , ho said , the house never
will agree to nml to pass the bill the senate
will 1mo to recede. This assertion was sub-
stinllated by other men high In the party
councils , who slated that this and other
differences would bo ndhoicd to by the house.
"Wo have In the senate , " said a leading
democratic scnatoi , "a democratic majority.
It doc's not take very much figuring to show
how llttlo wo have to depend on. "
The senator was Informed that It was
claimed by the house that when the fight
finally icsolved Itself to that point alone and
there Is only this standing In the v\ay ol
agreement , the senate would have to recede ,
nnd ho replied "Wo will never have that
Kind of nn agreement ; It will be n complcto
agi cement or none "
"A number of lenders In the house are
talking about stajlng until the 4th ot
March , " said the icporlor.
"That Is useless kind of talk , " ho re
plied "If vvo cannot agree , and wo demon
strate that wo cannot agree , we will ad
journ. There will bo no necessity cf stay
ing hero when It Is found that no agreement
can bo reached. "
Another democratic senator said that the
Rcnato would bo compelled to hold out. Tha

ptrty caucus , and the fact that cno provision
of it , as agreed upon In caucus , the extension
ot the bounty to 1S95 , wan eliminated , placed
