WASHINGTON , July 20. Today was one
of dramatic Interest In the senate , for the
Into ot the tarlfl bill of 1891 depended upon
the course pursued In the upper branch cf
congress. The friends of the tariff bill
wore anxious faces , and more than once dur
ing the day felt the very danger point had
The enemies of the bill at times believed
they would bo able to defeat It. When ad
journment came the situation was still per
plexing. The senate proceedings proper
were of a peculiar nature In that the de
bute waa carried on entirely by the demo
crats , save a brief speech by Senator Sher
man mid a ( iticstlcn by Senator Aldrleh.
The principal speeches of the day were those
of Senators Hill and Vest , though others
contributed to the Interest of the occasion.
Senator Hill's position , endorsing the presi
dent In emphatic terms , \vas one of the
most conspicuous Incidents of the day.
Senator Vest took occasion to talk In plain
terms In defense of the right of the senate
flnd house to manage Its conference without
executive Interference. Ills criticism of
the president's course and the action of
Mr. Wilson was more severe than was ex
pected , llo spoke for the nuance committee
and the position ot the senate.
The action of Senator Vllas In preceding
Ills speech w 1th a motion to strike out the one-
eighth differential on sugni was an additional
hensation of a scnsatlcnnl day , from the
fact that It was probable the motion would
carry. It caused consternation until It was
found the motion may be dcclaicd out of
order. The statements of Senator Smith
and Senator Rlanclmrd were Important , indi
cating n change In the sugar schedule might
mean the loss of their votes. Sena
tor Dlanchard stated decidedly he would
not vote for the bill If this change \us
Senator Gray's vigorous speech was en
livened by n brisk colloquy with Senator
Hill. The exciting day's proceedings chsed

The conservative democrats , Mr. Brlce In
nn Immaculate suit of white flannel , Mr.
Gorman In a sedate suit of blue , and Mr
Smith In a long black frock coat , sat
grouped together on the democratic side.
Mr. Hill , bitting far back , chatted merrily
\\lth General Dan Sickles , the one-legged
veteran of Gettysburg. Senators Sherman ,
Aldrleh , Allison , Halo and Chandler , the
leaders on the republican side , appeared
amused at the storm which threatened
across the political aisle. The preliminary
routine business was transacted in a per
Senator Voorhccs , the tall sycamore of the
Wabash , chairman ot the finance committee ,
arose and called up the conference report of
the tariff bill. Without a word of explana
tion he yielded the Moor to Senator Smith of
Now Jersey , who arose and read a carefully
prepared speech. Ho had hoped , ho said ,
when the bill passed the senate two weeks
ngo , that It had been perfected. Hut the
events of the last twenty-four hours had
confronted the democratic party with the
possibility of the failure of all tariff legisla
tion at this session. If bo , the responsibil
ity must bo placed where It belonged.
Ho criticised the president for "violating"
the principles of his party In attempting to
Interfere with the prerogatives of the legis
lative branch of the government , but de
clared ho should never bo Intimidated by
threats from the president or the utterances
of his party associates at the other end of
the capltol who had been so uproariously
nppliudcd. Ho called attention to the differ
ences between the situation In the house and
Ho reviewed the events In the house which
culminated In the pa&sago of a bill with the
loss of seventeen democratic votes In that
body. In the senate nil Is changed. A
full democratic vote was needed to pass a
bill If It was to be passed as a party meas
ure and the members of tlu finance commit
tee went heroically to work to harmonize
the differences existing In the democratic
Bldo. They had accomplished that purpose.
to their everlasting credit , be It said. He
had been ono of those who stood out for con
cessions In the Interests of his constitu
ents. Ho made no concealment of his posi
tion then and made none now.
He proceeded to deliver a glowing eulogy
of the tariff bill as It passed the senate ,
which , nnlIKo the house bill , ho declared ,
ct i tallied no menace to the Industries of
the country and had not been framed by
men from span > cly settled districts who
Knew nothing of the great commercial dis
tricts ot tha United States.
He asserted that the trainers ot the house
bill and a large proportion of the democratic
party were not tariff reformers , they were
frco traders .
DIDN'T GUT ALL ASKED.
The president , In his letter accepting the
renomlnatlon , bad favored not frco but freer
raw materials. He proceeded to point out
the reductions that the scnato bill made on
coal , Iron and lead ore and detailed at length
the reduction on other schedules. Then the
uptaker touched on sugar. A majority of
eighty-three In the house had enabled that
body , ho said , to rldo rough shod over the
wishes of the representatives of the sugar
producing stairs , and In the face ot the
president's protest the chnlrmin of the ways
mid means committee proposed to place
sugar , raw and refined , on the frco list In u
He then devoted some time to an exposi
tion ot the situation with reference to sugar ,
raw and refined , contending that the pro
posed reduction In the senate bill was ono
of the biggest made la any schedule , From
statistics obtained at the Trcasuiy depart
ment ho maintained the enactment of thn
senate bill would reduce tarl" taxation JITH , .
000,000. He bad voted for the bill with the
Income tax Incorporated with great rcluct-
nnco ami with the distinct * understanding
that ho was not willing to vote for a bill
by which a single Industry should bo stricken
iloun or the resumption of a single Industry
piovclitcd. Ho had asked for greater concea-
tlns for his conatltuentB than ho had re
ceived from the llnanca committee.
"So fir I am concerned and I think I
speak alto for several of my colleagues
there has not been the slightest change In
my position , " sold Mr. Smith. "It has been
charged wo are not sincere In our advocacy
of the senate bill ; that we have made It
for trading purposes , nnd that those of us
who oppose the Wilson bill would rush Into
line at the I1r.it crnck of the whip. I did
not suppose any person familiar with the
character of this body would bo misled by
n notion so puerile. Hut It Is evident from
the attitude of our colleagues In the house
that either they don't believe wo meant
what we said or they arc willing to Invite
the defeat ot tariff legislation. If the for
mer , I have only to say they have mistaken
their men. If the latter , thry must answer
to the people for the defeat of a bill which
should nnd I believe would satisfy all reason
able expectations. "
HILL STANDS UP FOR CLEVELAND.
Mr. Hill said : "A theory as well as a con
dition now confronts us. The theory of the
democratic pirty Is that In the enactment of
tariff legislation frco raw matrclals should
always be an essential and conspicuous cle
ment. It Is our creed that the materials
which enter Into our manufactures should be
freed from the burden of tariff taxation The
best Interests of the manufacturers as well
as the consumers of the land command the
recognition of this w se d sc Im n itlo i. We .ire
committed to this side of the question and
we cannot retreat and we cannot retract.
We are honorably bound to redeem our prn-
feslons and promises. Justice , pooJ faith anJ
a decent regard for public sentiment , all re
quire this course.
"Until recently I had supposed that there
was no dispute upon this question of prin
ciple , but that every democrat wa < willing
to concede that If there was one thing more
than another to which the democratic party
was comm.tted It was the doctrine of ab-
solme free raw materials. The true and
honest construction cf every democratic na
tional platform for twelve years past Irre
vocably commits us to this just and rea on-
ablc prln Iplo. "
Mr. Hill read the democratic national
platform ot ISO. , and continued
"To repeal the McKltilsy liw In form
simply ; to re-enact It In effect Is keep tig
this pr mlse to the Utter , but breaking It
In spirit. The platform pointed with pilde
to and deliberately approved the measures
for free iron ore , free lead ore , free coal
and free wool , which were pending In con
gress at the t me of the convention then
The democratic doctrine Ii so plain and
clear that he who rims may read. If any
democratic orator In any part of the coun
try , forgetting the interests of the whole
land and subserving the supposed Interests
of a locality , promised the people of any
state or section that there would b3 any ex
ception made to the enforcement of the
general principle of free raw materials when
the democrat * should obtain power , he ox
cecded his author ty and misinterpreted our
HAW MATERIALS MUST HE FREE.
"It Is said by some In justification of , or
In excuse for their present action , that the
president's letter of acceptance In 1S12 mo II-
fled the extreme demands of our platform
It Is true that some portions of his letter
may tend to Itsnr that construction. It was
that bold , explicit declaration In favor of
the platform which his party had a right to
expect , but was regarded by many as cau
tious and conservative , but whether this crit
icism Is or Is not we.I founded , the fact re
mains that lie had no power or authority
to change or alter one llnror sentence or
provision of thu national platfoirn which
had been deliberately adopted by the na
tional convention , duly assembled No pres
ident can be above his party ; no president
can dictate to his pirty ; no president can
change his party platform.
"Hut no matter what Idea It may be
claimed was Intended to bo conveyed In his
letter nf acceptance. In mitigation or modifi
cation of the platform , there can bo no
doubt as to the president's position at this
time upon this essential principle of frco
raw materials. Lot me read from that
remarkable letter of the president's which
was yesterday submitted to the house of
representatives. It expresses better than I
can hope to do the true , sound and logical
position of the democratic party upon this
After reading extracts from this letter
Mr. Hill continued : "Mr. President : I ap
prove every word that I have quoted. It is
an honest and manly statement of the true
attitude which the party should atsumo In
"I am not required to defend the pio-
prlcty or wisdom of the piomulgatlon of this
let er nt this peculiar time. It may have
been Indiscreet , It may operate as a fire
brand to spread the flame of discord already
kindled among party friends , honestly differ
ing , , as 1 am disposed to concede , upon ques
tions of public and parl > policy. It was a
time for diplomacy , statesmanship and con
ciliation , i.uhcr than recrimination , denun
ciation and arraignment. Hut aside from
the question of Its mere expediency , I am
hero to defend the president's letter Insofar
as It demands that the party shall not be led
astray Into the violation of democratic
pledges and principles.
NOW IS THE TIME TO YIELD.
"Upon the question of free raw materials
the president Is right and jou Know It. You
cannot answer his arguments. You cannot
successfully dispute his propositions. You
cai not doubt his sincerity and patriotism.
You must yield In the end to his views.
You cannot stand up against tha sentiment
of the great democratic masses of the coun
try which will rally around the president
in his contest with you upon this particular
branch of the subject.
"The tlmo to > leld Is now , before therj
Is further humiliation , cmbanasMiient and
"Mr. President , having demonstrated
that the true democratic theory ot revenue
icform requires that free raw materials
should bo Its distinguishing feature , let us
next Inqulio what Is the condition which
now confronts us.
"Tho bill which passed the senate violates
this democratic principle when It reduces
the duty on Iron , lead and some other raw
materials from those Imposed under the Mc-
Klnley law , and In that icspcct Is commendable
mendableIt nevertheless Imp > sen some
duties thereon , and thereby falls to redeem
our pledges. It Is not a question of the
amount of duties which may bo Imposed , a
question of principle Is Involved , and a single
penny's duty violates our promises and places
us In a falsa position. As the president well
says , there can be no compromise on n mat
ter of this character , In which an evil prin
ciple Is at stake.
"The house of representatives , fresh from
the people , which represents moro distinctly
and peculiarly than wo do the taxing power
of the people , repudiates our bill and a
democratic president has emphasized that
repudiation , and the condition which con
fronts us Is ono of extreme embarrassment.
Shall wo retreat or advance ? Shall we
surrender to the house while we can do so
honorably or shall we wait until wo arc
driven to It ?
CLEVELAND'S POSITION CLEAR.
"In the light of the letter of the president
the house cannot honorably retreat. It has
no alternative except to Insist upon UH bill
wherein It provides for free raw materials.
The president cannot approve the senate
bill after what ho has said In
this remarkable letter. He arraigns
the senate and Intimates that
the enactment ot the senate bill means
'party perfidy and party d Bhonor. ' These
are strong words which the president of
the United States would not use touard a
measure which he never expected after
ward i to approve ,
"This letter , unusual and unprecedented
In Its character and method ot promulga
tion though It may be , nevertheless clearly
foreshadows a veto ot the senate bill oven
If the house should finally concur In our
amendments. What person would expect
the president to approve the lenatc b II
after Its vigorous and scathing denunciation-
contained In his letter ? You would think
less of him for his glaring Inconsistency.
"No , this letter Is significant. It Is a
bold , vigorous even If Imprudent letter. It
means war to the knife against the senate
bill ; It justifies much that has been said
against the senate bill during all the last
three months' ; It means that It can never
receive executive approval ; It means that the
senate cannot bo permitted to ubindon or
surrender the great underlying principles for

BAYREUTH , July 20. "Lohengrin" was
performed today with splendid success. It was
the first time the opera had ever been given
at Bayreuth , and the production was a bril

of the opera cost 5,000 , and the costumes
and armor used were of the style of the
tenth century , Instead of that of the thir
teenth , as customary. These changes and
the staging were warmly admired by the
audience , nnd the finished rendering of the
various parts of the opera was highly
pro nod. KelU Mottle of Carlsruhe was the
conductor and Mine. Lllllsn Nordlca made
her debut In ILljrcuth as El a. Her suc

the factions supporting George W. Miller

Third senatorial district. Miller's Interests
at the Pullman polls were In charge of

caused a lively row and for1 a time It looked
as If the crowd , which had rapidly Increased ,

Western Passenger Association Lines Will

CHICAGO , July 20. The lines of the West
ern Passenger association 'held ' an Informal
meeting today to consider the question of
granting lower rates on several large excur
sions which are to take place In the near
future. The meeting had not authority to
make any rates or take decisive action of
any kind , but It was the opinion of all the
lines represented that most of the applica
tions should be negatived. For some days
past the association roads have been strug
gling with the problem of whether to make
reduced rates b tween Chicago and Denver
for the meeting of the Nobles of the Mystic
Shrine In the latter city. The reason ad-
vaneed In the argument for reduction was
that the Union Pacific has made cheap rates
and it behooved all other lines to make sim
ilar rates If they did not want the Union
Pacific to take all the business. The clnrge
against the Union Pacific , ' was not substan
tiated in any way and It was decided that
It would not do to reduce the rates , partic
ularly as the amount of business will bo so
small that it made very little difference who
carried It. ' (

SAN FRANCISCO , July , 20. It Is prophe-
a.ed on all sides that the Southern Pacific
strlko Is to bo settled by Monday next. It
Is rumored about that negotiations of s.mo
ort are pending between the strike leaders
and the railroad oMlcUls , but these rumors
cannot positively be authenticated.
It Is simply known that the strikers at
Oakland vvlr d to President Debs asking
whether they were authorized to negot ate
with the railroad officials , and that Debs
answered , practically Instructing the Cali
fornia union to act a they would deem ad
visable. In the face of these stories of
pending negotiations It Is a significant fact
that the str Iters are no longer offering any
violent resistance , nnd that the number of
gifurds going out on trains have baen greatly
reduced. Nothwlth landing these evidences
of a desire on the part of both sides for
peace , the rellr.nd officials still Insist that
they are running their trains without the
least difficulty , and that they need no more
men , wh le the strlkcis , on the other hand ,
declare that the company's operating de
partment Is till woefully crippled The rail
road managers , however , though they have
been asserting for several days that they
are running all trains as usual , have regu
larly annulled several Imporlant trains To
night , for the first time , the northbound
Oregon express was sent out , and not until
tomorrow night , at lejbt , will the evening
estbound OvciHnd be restored. At Sacra
mento today 009 men were at work In the
shops. Yesterday only 426 men could bo
Induced to return. The Postofllce department
has withdrawn the ceast ma Is from the
steamships , and ha fully restored Its ser
vice on the railroads. It Is claimed , too ,
that the last of the delajed eastern mall
has reached San Francisco.

WOODLAND , Cal. , July 20. The prelim
inary examination of the five A. R. U. men
charged with murder In connection with the
train wreck at the trestle west of Sacra
mento was resumed this morning. Johnny
Sherburne , the lad who drove several men
to the trestle shortly before the train was
wrecked , was recalled for further cross-exami
nation. Though he was kept on the witness
stand nearly all of the forenoon , the boy
adhered c osely to the damaging testimony
that he gave against the prisoners yester
day. The boy added that soon after he had
driven back to Sacramento ho showed the
chief of police and a railroad detective a
fuse and a package of giant powder that
the men had left In Ills wagon.
The next witness was F. W. Hill , a freight
conductor , whose train was tied up at Wash
ington siding , not far from the trestle , on
the day of the disaster. Ho testified ho saw
the Sherburne boy's wagon in which the de
fendants , Woidon and Hatch , and several
others were being driven towards the trestle.
He also detailed the purport of significant
orders which he heard the men giving the
boy as the wagon stopped near his train.
Harry Tccple , a brakeman on the same train ,
gave similar testimony.
J. IX Graham , a Western Union line re
pairer , testified that just before the wreck ,
ns ho was riding along on a railway blcjclc ,
he was halted nt the trest'c by two msn
who threatened to shoot him. The men
smashed his bicycle and ditched it , and then
ordered him to walk back towards Sacra
mento. He walked a little way , then sat
down by the roadside and STW the passenger
train as It came along run upon the trestle
and plunge off Into the water. Graham
could not Identify any of the prisoners as
the men ho saw at the trestle.

ST. LOUIS , July 20. The Missouri Pacific
railroad has throw n down the gauntlet to
the A. R. U. for a fight to the death. The
following certificate was this morning handed
a yard clerk on that road , who had reported
two days ago for his old position :
"This Is to certify that - has
been employed In the capacity of clerk In the
yard department of the Missouri Pacific sys
tem , St. Louis terminal division , from April ,
IS93 , to Juno , ISO I , nt which tlmo It was
necessary to lay him off on account of a
strike In the yard. Ho reported for work
on the ISth of July , but In the meantime it
was learned that ho was a member of the
A. R. U. and was In sympathy with the
strlko movement , so that we cannot reemploy
ploy him. Ills work and conduct up to the
tlmo of the strlko were perfectly satisfac
"J. S. JONES , Terminal Superintendent. "
It Is probable that a civil suit for damages
will bo brought against the railroad for Its
action In this matter. If the statutes war
rant It a warrant will be sworn out against
Superintendent Jones for blacklisting or dis
criminating against a man because of his
connection with a labor organisation.

CHICAGO. July 20. The First regiment ,

ot Pullman this afternoon by the report that
a riot was In progress. Investigation showed
that the report was caused by a crowd of

tempted to escape and was chased several
blocks by the crowd. She finally escaped
and the troops boon restored order.

when the laundry girls quit work. When
they left the works they were surrounded
by a demonstrative mob of from SOO to 1,000
women and children , who followed them
thiough the streets of Pullman to their
homes. Several policemen were on hand and
gave them protection. No anests wcro made
The police were not accustomed to dealing
with a crowd of the feminine gender and did
little moro than keep the most turbulent
women from seizing hold of the frightened
girls. At 5 o'clock fifty Hollanders , who
have been employed about the works as
lumbar shovcrs , track gradeis and icpalrers ,
left the works for their homes In Itoselainl.
They had a guai'd of sixteen policemen , com
manded by Lieutenant Haslet. Scarcely had
they come from the works when 100 of the
strikers surrounded them. The police charged
the crowd several times with a liberal use
of the club before It was dlsprsed. In the

upon to report for duty , whllo their engines
are run by new men. Neither have they
been notified of dismissal and they are
falmply "hung up" The brotheihood engi

They bay that of the new men who have

Is contrary to the laws of the organization.
They propose to make things lively for some

Olficers of the Wabash deny the statement
that any of their engines have been "hung
