WASHINGTON , May 25 The debate on
HID tarirt bill began In the fcnato today
vllh crowded gallerlea nnd a largo attend
ance of senators and the tariff leaders of the
house. Minor business claimed attention up
to 2 p m , when Senator Aldrlch of Rhode
Inland , In charge of the tariff bill , had the
tncasurci laid before the senate and took the
floor for the opening t-pecch. At that time
cvciy available seat In the galleries wuu oc
cupied The republican side of the floor
showed an tolld representation , there
being three or four vacant neala. The dem-
ocints also presented full ranks and the scat
tered scats of the populists were occupied ,
with but one exception Mr. Dlngley , chair
man of the ways and meana committee
nnd author of the house bill , took a scat
Immediately beside Mr. Aldrlch and lis
tened attentively. Other republican mem
bers of the way * and monm\ committee and
Representative Shntnon of the populist con
tingent occupied the rear lounges. Speaker
Hoed was not present.
Mr Aldiich fcpoko for almost art hour and
a quartet , adopting an easy , conversational
style HI i speech was the olllclal utterance
of the finance committee , and , In a seiiix ? ,
of the republican sldo of the chamber. With
out making Invidious dl'tlncllons bet-veen
the two bills , Mr. Aldrlch clearly elated
as the belief of the finance committee that
the bouse bill would not yield revenue ade
quate for the needs of the government
Mr Vest of Missouri , one of the demo
cratic members of the finance committee ,
followed with a statement In opposition to
the bill He ppoko of the futility of piling
up taxcu on an overburdened people when
there was n balance of $129000000 In the
treasury. He criticised the schedules In de
tail , declaring that some of them were dc-
nlgncd to bo piohlbltlve. Ho severely at
tacked the Increase In the lead duty , declar
ing It wns for the benefit of the "cormo
rants" of monopoly and against the people.
Mr Cannon of Utah , a silver republlcin
closed the debate for the day by urging that
the protection should be so distributed as to
aid the mrmers.
Early In the day Mr. Mallory. the new
ncnator from Florida , was sworn In and took
his scat.
The tariff hill was taken up at 2-03 with
out opposition and Senator Aldrlch proccede
to explain the piovlslnns of the measure.
In opening hli speech. Senator Aldrlch

the Immediate future and which would re
quire a furthci Issue of bonds to meet < ur-
rcnt expenditures would certainly be fntnl
to the hopes of future succtts of anv i u'ltlcal
party responsible for such legislation
In selecting the sourcts for additional
revenue the committee decided to Increase
temporal lly the tax on articles of voluntary rather than to assess additional duties
which might prove Inoperative upon ai llcles
of necessity or upon those wlil h ti te.r into
our manufactured products Assuming that
flip necessity for additional rovpiiup exists ,
nnd of this WP believe there can bno ques
tion. theie Is no economic rca on nnd cer
tainly none that affects the public Interests
why beer and tobacco would not bear tl.elr
share of additional taxation
The committee believes that the duty pro-
pO ed on tea will not prove n. serious burden
upon the coiiHUinora of that article Noth
ing in the theor > of piotcctlon Interferes
with the Imposition of further Internal rev
enue taxes by protectionists whenever such
a com so Is found desirable for revenue pur-
po'es only In the future It is almon cer
tain that WP shall be ob l ed to depend more
and more upon taxes of this nature for ncr-
cs"3ary revenue.
In the > car.s to come we must expect n
( lecteaso rather than an Increase in the cus
toms revenue to bo derived under the pilncl-
pal schedules of the tariff With duties
adequntclj protective upon manufacturers
of cotton , wool , silk nnd flax \ve may ex
pect a constantly diminishing revenue from
the Importations of thesp products. If the
rates Imposed by this bill on sugar Bhould
be found to lead to the rapid development of
the beet sugar Indus-trj In the Tnlted States ,
we mnv expect large reductions year by jear
from the c-ntemplHted it-venue from sugar
Some of the mo t sanguine advocates of the
policy of encouraging beet sugar produc
tions in this counirv bcllevp that we Phnll
within ten years produce all of our sugar.
The legitimate n > ult of a protective policy
I't to give the American imuket to Ameilcan
producers. When this becomes an accom
plished fact the icvenue growing out of
protective duties dlsippeart U must be
evident thetefore that wo mu t look for
other sources of revenue Whether It should
be along the line of an Increase of internal
revenue taxes , such as we have suggested
or whether some other sour e * of revenue
should be sought It Is not necessary now
to determine. It K safe to assume that
numcroiiH objectors will ulvvajs be found to
any plan for Increased taxation. In this
paitlcular case the committee Is only strenu
ous that a wise public policy requires that
our revenues should .it all times be equal to
our exiwndlturcs and th it the people of the
United States will not be Fatl'Iled with any
revenue measurethnt docs not provide ade-
eiuate Income- for this purpose.
In the sugar schedule 13 we have suggested
a chance In rates and In the manner of as-
seEHliiK the duties As the- schedule Is a very

TMc proceedings In the case of Joseph S
inrtlcy , the ex state treasurer , charged with
ho embezzlement of about $200,000 In slate
umls , enmu up bcforo Judge linker of the
rlmlnnl branch of the district court ycstcr-
ay aftcri oon.
Hartley was In court nnd was represented
jy T. J. Mahoncy nnd C. 0. Wliedon of
Incoln. Tno state's Interests were In the
anils of Attorney General C. J. Smyth ntul
County Atlortey Baldilge.
The proceedings constituted an argument
f the motion lo quash , filed by Hartley's nt-
erne > s The motion was based on the ground
lint the police court had no Jurisdiction nnd
hnt Hartley had not had a preliminary ex.-
mlnntlon nor had ho waived the Fame , nnd
lao on the ground that n similar piocecd-
ng , based on the charge of embezzling Iho
nine funds cohered bv the complaint In the
aso at bar , were pending In the I-.ancas.ter
ounty court at the time the proceedings In
hla county were coinnicnccd.
The leading argument for Hartley wan
nade by Mr Mnhone > . Ho offered In cvl-
cnco n certified copy of the proceedings In
ho courts of Lancaster county , showing the
) cndcncy of a similar action In that court ,
vhlch wns commenced April 19 , nnd Dartlej
jotiml over to the district court April 20 ,
ho day lieforo the proceedings In this
ounty wen. commenced
Mr. Mahoney read the warrant Ihsucd bj
ho police judge of this city , calling atton-
lon to the fact that It wns directed to the
hciiff , which he claimed was not within
ho powers of the police judge. IIo also read
bo transcript of the proceedings In the
'police court " and claimed that the statutes
lo not confer upon the "police court" any
nrlsdlctlon to hold preliminary cxninlnu-
lens nnd bind prisoners over to n higher
ionrt lie nrgued that all authority In such
matters is conferred by the statutes ) upon
he "police judge , " and on these statements
10 based his claim that the defendant had
lot had a piellmlnary examination and wns
lot , therefore , legally bcforo the district
court for trial.
The argument for the state was made by
bounty Attorney Haldrigo , who quoted au-
hoiitio' ! In oi position to those icfoired to by
ilr. Mahonej. The county attorney con-
: undcd that it was Immaterial whether the
name "S , I. Gordon , " signed to the tran
script , was follow od liy the words "police
udgo" or "judge of the police court , " as the
: ourt would take Judicial knowledge of the
fact that Gordon Is a police judge Ho took
up seriatim the other points raited by Mr.
Mjhoncy nnd nrgued against them.
Attorney General Smjth also argued
against the motion to quash. Ho contended
hat the points referred to by the attorncjs
or the defendant should have been rnlsed by
i plea In abatement and not In the shape of
a motion to quash.
Following this attorney general Mr. MaHoney -
- Honeydiscussed ttc ) transcript of the pro
ceedings In the- police court. Ho attacked
the record. as show n by tbe transcript ,
claiming that the finding of the oourt was
defective in that It did not show that the
court found that a crime had been com
mitted within the jurisdiction of the court
and that there was probable cause for be
lieving that the defendant had committed
the crime
The closing argument was made by Mr.
Whedon , who discussed the alleged defect
In the warrant , claiming that It did not show
the crime with which the defendant was
charged. He read from the wairant to show
that it simply charged "embezzlement" nni
Iio claimed that the statutes require that
the warrant must state the specific charge
He contended that Hartley had not been ar
rested In the manner provided by law and
had not had a legal preliminary hearing.
Judge Baker announced that lie would take
the matter under advisement until 9 o'clock
this morning. Heforo making this announce
ment the judge paid the questions raised were
serious oncu and he dcslicd to consider then
well before deciding upon them. Ho severely
criticised tbe papers sent up from the police
court , pronouncing them the most abaun
