Manawa on July 22 , the day of the big Bur

district court yesterday In which ho asks
for a judgment In the sum of $5,000 against
Colonel F. C. Reed. Ho alleges thai the
Btray bullet struck him as the result of the
carelessness or Incompotency of Colonel
Heed's employes and the poor quality of the
apparatus used In connection with the shoot
ing. The bullet Is still In his neck , and all
the efforts of physicians to dislodge It have
been fruitless. It Interferes with his swal

WASHINGTON , Aug. 1C. During the pre
sentation of memorials and petit ens In tlic
senate at 12:12 : today Chief Clerk Towlcs
.appoarcd at the main door with the tariff
bill. The members of the senate listened
attentively while Cleric Towles rcsd the
resolution which signalized tlic senate tri
umph over the house In the tar ff struggle ,
but there wan no demonstration of any k nd.
The speaker's signature to the bill was
announced at the same time. Then the
vlco president appended his signature.
Mr. Harris , democrat of Tennessee , actIng -
Ing chairman cf the finance committee , asked
for the Ecconu reading of the house revenue
bills. No ono objecting the b Us to place
coal , lrn ore and barb wire on the free Hit
were read. Air. Harris then read a letter
Just received from Secretary Carlisle con
cerning the effect of the proposed bills upon
the revenues cf the government.
The leiter reviewed the condition of the
treasury and the estimated revenues of the
government for the next fiscal year.
The Ilgurcs showed that under the new tariff
bill the revenues would exceed the expendi
tures for the fiscal year ending June 30 , 1803 ,
by $15,000,000. The revelling from the sugar
duty , Mr. Carlisle placed at $13,000,000 , and
from coal , Iron ore and barbed wire , $1,000-
100. If the house bills were passed this
would , Mr. Carlls.c said , be a deficiency next
year of $29.000.000.
Mr. 13 rry , democrat of Arkansas , called
up the free sugar bill.
Mr. Harris , while favoring free sugar ,
thought this and the other bills should bo
referred to the finance committee. The sen
ate coujd not adjourn without providing for
thj threatened deficiency of $28,000,000 or
$30,000.000 , which might result from the pas
sage of this bill.
Mr. Herry Insisted that the senate should
decldo the matter and not bury It In com
mittee. He said the senate had been charged
with being a friend of the Sugar trust. Ho
wanted the bill to pass exactly as It come
from the house.
Mr. Harris said an early report would bs
made by the committee.
At this point Mr. Cockrell presented a
conference report upon the general defic
iency appropriation bill. Ths only point In
dispute was $1,800,000 for southern claims , to
which the house would not agree. He moved
that the senate Insist upon this point. Mr.
Cockrell said the amendment was already
a deficit upon which the government was
Mr. Sherman moved that the senate recede
from Its amendment , but his motion was
lost and Mr. Cockrell's carried.
Mr. Cockrell presented the conference re
port on the sundry civil bill. Mr. Mander-
son objected to the striking out of an appro
priation for the v.ctlms of the Ford theater
disaster. The report was agreed to.
SENATE'S POSITION VINDICATED.
Mr. Vest resumed his speech on Mr. Harris'
motion to refer the free sugar and other
bills to the finance committee. He thought
It meant the death of the bills , as the com
mittee was now a tie with the prospect of
a disappearance of a quorum within a few
days. He declared the position of the senate
on the tariff had been vindicated by the
letter of Secretary Carlisle which proved con
clusively that If the house bill had ben en
acted It would have caused a deficiency of
$30,000,000. Ho showed that the power ac
quired by the sugar trust was the result of
Us fostering by the provisions of the
Mr. Vest then proceeded with his descrip
tion of the dlfllcultles In connection with the
adjustment of a sugar schedule. Under the
Wilson bill aa reported to the house from
the committee it is considered a duty and
bounty. When It was In the house free
si'gar was Inserted. The finance committee
prepar.il a bill which gave no differential
benefit to the trust.
"And yet , " said Mr. Vest , .with bitterness ,
"they call us the creatures of the Sugar
The senator paused for a moment and
then with Intense earnestness added :
"Liars , slanderers , Infamous llbMers ! "
Mr. Vest said he would not enter Into
the charges that the senate was a party to
the fight between the president and the
senator from Maryland ( Gorman ) . He ( Vest )
had his strong differences with that senator
on the tariff , and he had written a letter
long ago to the Graystone club stating his
objections to the policy of Mr. Gorman and
supporting Mr. Cleveland for his position on
"Uut , " continued Mr. Vest , "I belong tone
no man. I belong to no faction. I am
neither Montague nor Capulet , York nor
Lancaster. I can never follow one who docs
does violence to the principles of the demo
cratic party. "
Toward the close of his speech Mr. Vest
said : "Recurring again to an unpleasant
subject , I hope for the last time , I wish to
say I have no quarrel with the president
of the United States.
"If It were necessary today In order to
remain In public life to retract anything I
have said I would not do It. No man , no
matter how high his position , has a right to
perpetrate an Injustice upon another. After
the president had told my colleagues , for I
had not been to the white house , that al
though he preferred free coal and free Iron ,
still the bill as we were preparing It would
receive his support , and after wo had given
our labor , our energy and almost our 'lives
in the preparation , the president then to
come before the American people and de
nounce a measure which he had failed to
denounce before , although ho knew Its pro
visions , was an act of gross Injustice to those
of us who had suffered far more that he.
The best campaign document furnished the
republican party , of which we will not hear
the last until the approaching canvass Is
ended , will bo the letter of the president
denouncing the senate , without exception , for
having framed the bill , the provisions of
which are now necessary , according to the
secretary of the treasury , to prevent the
Issue of Interest-bearing bonds to carry on
PERSONALITIES NOT PLEASANT.
"Mr. President , It Is not pleasant to In
dulge In personalities , but my attention hag
been called recently to an Infamous state
ment , coming from a. generally reputable
source and made In the public press , to the
effect that my action In regard to the letter
of the president to Mr. Wilson In regard to
the bill had been dictated by a feeling of
revenge against his excellency because ho
had Ignored mo In regard to the patronage
of the state.
"Mr. President , I have no private grief ,
but I wish to acknowledge In the most pub- ,
lie manner my gratitude to the president for
having relieved mo from all responsibility
In regard to the appointments In Missouri.
"Sir , If there Is anything In my public
life which has afforded me any pleasure ,
real and substantial , It has been the fact that
the president , In the exercise of his consti
tutional right , of which I do not complain ,
Informed me ho did not desire my advice re
garding Missouri appointments. I have
not anything to complain of the president.
I am ready to follow him now as the old
Scotch followed the banner of Ilruco when he
fought for country and home. I fight for no
man , I fight for my country and my home.
Men pass away like clouds from the evening
sky , but principle must live forever. When
any man living accused me of personal mo
tives In what I have done In connection with
this bill ( but my connection with It Is now
ended ) , I simply answer him as Marmlon to
Douglass ; 'Lord Angus , thou hast lied. ' "
Senator Jones of Arkansas , who has taken
the Imd to far as the senate end was con
cerned In the recent tariff conferences , of
fered an amendment to the free sugar bill
Imposing a fiat 30 per cent duty on all
sugars , ra\v and refill. > 1 ,
Senator Mills then delivered the speech
which he has been treasuring up for several
"The bill which bos been pending here , "
he said , "and which Is about to become a
law does not reflect the sentiments of 1,000
people of the United States. No republican
wanted It ; no populist wanted It , and lew
democrats wanted It The tfcat m i of
people condemned It"
Us exclaimed dramatical ! ) ! . "The bill
was dictated by five orsix. or seven men
on this floor. My frlcmvl 'from Missouri
( Vest ) Is r ght In saying * , thwe Is no demo
cratic majority on this llocr for tirlff re
form. There are four purlieu on this floor
democrats , populist * , republicans and 'con
servatives. The conservative balance
of power made the bill ! wtf voted for It and
passed It and It Is iboul to"bec-me a law.
Wo were between the tldvll and the deep
sea , and rather than sen the 'country go
to the dev I wo went Intp the deep sea , It
Is better than the McKlnlpy law. "
REGRETTED ATTACKS. ON CLEVELAND.
Turning to another branch of Mr. Vest's
speech , he said : "I rcgrqt to sec my friend
attack the president of .the United States ,
I believe ho Is honest ; I believe he Is try
ing to carry out the will of 6,000.000 demo
cratic voters. The leiter of Secretary Car
lisle Is no condemnation of the president's
letter to Mr. W.Uon. The president's letter
to Mr. Wilson was written because we departed -
parted from the democratic principle of
fres raw material. The president wanted
to glvo employment to the Idle
of the country. We don't accept
this as the final settlement of the tariff ;
we Intend to continue the crusade of tariff
reform until the people are. no longer ground
down by-burdens which are made to enrich
the few. "
Mr. Mills raid 'his purpose was to
challenge the assertion of the secretary of
the treasury that the removal of the sugar
duty would cause a deficit. If the duty were
taken off sugar , ho declared , the treasury
would still have more money under this bill
than could bo economically spent by the
government. The estimates upon which Mr.
Carlisle's statement was made he based on
the Imports of 1S93 under the McKlnley law.
The whole history of tariff legislation dem
onstrated that reductions of duties resulted
In Increased Importations and .In Increased
revenue. He maintained there was no nec
essity to secure one dollar of revenue from
sugar. The only thing that reconciled him to
the duty on sugar was thai If there was a
surplus our Interest bearing bonds could be
purchased. Hut he preferred to put sugar on
the Tree list.
"Does the senator mean that he will vote
for free sugar In the face of the statement
of the secretary of the treasury ? " asked Mr.
Mcl'hcrson of New Jersey.
"I will , " replied Mr. Mills , "as I have said ,
If the secretary of the treasury has copied
these figures for the finance committee based
On the Importations of 1S93. No allowance
Is mad ? for the largely Increased importa
tions under the lower rates. The senate has
the facts. "
Mr. Mills said in conclusion that he hoped
the senator from Tennessee would with
draw his motion to refer.
Mr. Harris replied he had great respect
for the opinion of Mr. Mills , but In view of
the letter of Mr. Carlisle he would at this
time prefer to toke his Judgment to that of
the senator from Texas , and would Insist on
his motion. ,
VILAS TAKES ISSUE WITH VEST.
Mr. Vllas replied to some of the observa
tions of Mr. Vest , taking Issue with him.
Mr. Vllas drifted to the discussion of the
dlccrlmlnating duty In favor of the Sugar
trust , and finally declared the bill shoul' '
not go to the finance committee.
"If the bill is not referred to the financ
committee , " nsktd Mr. Mitchell of Oregoi
"do you favor the bill us1 It came from th
house ? "
Mr. Vllas replied ho considered sugar n
legitimate object of revenue , but the peopl
should be rid of the trust. However , rather
than have the trust profit to the extent ol
untold millions he would b willing to sac
rifice the revenue from sugar. If the senate
voted to refer the bill , Mr. Vllas said , It
voted to bury It. There should bo no mis
take about that when the vote was taken.
Mr. Manderson of Nebraska said If the sen
ators on the other side had concluded the
disclosure of the secrets of the charnel house
he would movj to adjourn.
At the request of Mr. Dolph , however ,
Mr. Manderson allowed a motion to go Into
executive session to take precedence. Upon
the motion , Mr. Gray qf Delaware demanded
the yeas and nays , and it was defeated 18
to 31. 'i
The session concluded with a humorous
passage at arms between Mr. Harris and Mr.
Chandler. The senatpi then , at 5 o'clock ,

"Bradford kept quiet during the vlccissl-

Throughout the long tariff struggle , and
especially during the last few weeks of at

the fight. In addition to this every effort
has been put forth to present the vhws of
American or English visitors to America.
In Bradford especially , where the whole
town of nearly a quarter of a million of
people Is dependant , directly or Indirectly , on
the staple Industry , the struggle has been
watched with the closest attention , and the
outcome Is accordingly all the more welcome.
A great business revival is expected within
the next few months.

WASHINGTON , Aug. 16. National Reve
nue Commissioner Miller was at the capital
today , seeing Mr. Wilson concerning what
appears likely to bo an unfortunate compli
cation In the collection of the new revenue
tax on alcohol. While In tlic senate an
amendment was Inserted In the tariff bill
making alcohol free of tax when used In the
arts , In medical prescriptions or In other
like compounds. The section Is as follows :
Any manufacturer finding It necessary to
me ale re ! In Hie nils , or Iti nv medicinal
or other like compound , may use the same
under regulations to be prescribed by the
secretary of the treasury , and on satisfying
the collector of Internal revenue for the dis
trict wherein he resides or carries on busi
ness that ho has complied with such regula
tions and has used such alcohol therein , and
exhibiting- and dplve"ing | up the stamps
which show that a tax has been paid thereon ,
shall be entitled to receive from the treasury
of the United States a rebate or repayment
of the tax so paid , s . ,
"Roughly estimated , " said Mr. Miller ,
"this estimate would reduce revenues $8-
000,000 or $10,000,000 annually. The depart
ment has always bdhi against such proced-
for Infants and Children.

' WASHINGTON. Aug. IB. Chairman Wil
son has received n letter from President
Cleveland , written Immediately after the an
nouncement of the decision of the house
to pass the senate bill , The letter Is per
sonal and pathetic , but contains n highly
significant reference to the present
attitude of the democratic party on
tariff reform. Mr. Cleveland cays that as
soon as he heard the nsws that the housi
had agreed to pass the senate bill he Im
mediately thought of Mr. Wilton , and at
once sat down to wrlto him a brief note
expressive of his fcllng. Realizing full }
the great effort made by Mr. Wilson to bring
about a great result he knows Ills disap
pointment must be keen and lasting. lie
urges him , though , not to despair , and nays
that he , too , has felt great disappointment
flt the outcome. At ono time , the president
, snys , he began to doubt whether the demo
cratlc party was after all the real party ol
tariff reform , but ho did. not permit hlmsell
to entertain the doubt , realizing Immediate ! )
that no matter what the temporary obstac.ci
In the wa of the progress , the party must
continue Its crusade , and Its members must
remain loyal to the cardinal principles ol
At least half the letter Is given up U.
admonishing Mr. Wilson that lie must ex
ercise great care In husbanding his strength
and 3 ek complete restoration of health. Tin
president urges him not to be cast down ci
account of defeat , but to devote his thoughts
to regaining his full strength In order thai
ho may continue the light for tariff reforn
In which the president assures him hs will
also be looked upon as a galiant leader.
The letter Is a purely personal one , de
voted largely to expressions of regard for
the gallant nght Mr. Wilson made , and un
der these circumstances It will not bo made
public In Its entirety. Indeed , no refer
ence whatever would have been made to It
had net one of Mr. Wilson's friends Inad-
vcrdently disclosed the fact. The letter Is
quite long and Is In the president's hand
writing. It was written Mcnday morning
as soon as the president received the bulle-
Mn saying that the house had determined to
ccda from Its disagreement and to accept
te senate bill. Its transmission to Mr.
, 'llson was delayed until late In the day ,
nd the messenger from the white house
landed It to h.m only a few minutes after
ho senate bill had been passed at 0:30 :
Monday evening. The letter does not ills-
ouss the tariff question except in the Indi
rect way of expressing deep sympathy and
regret for the personal reverse met by Mr.
