provides for the free admission of raw

tfnltcd States. If this treaty ohould re
main In force It would result In KlvlriR a
bounty to thn Hawaiian siiRnr producers
amounting to more than Js.trw.OOO per annum.
It wns not contemplated when the original
treaty was made , or when It was extended ,
that any possible advantage of this kind
could ever result from Ha terms to the poo-
tile of the SnndwMj Inlands.
The effect of this liounty would undoubt
edly be to stimulate enormoutdy the produc

wo believe that negotiations should at once

WOOI , SCHBDUM3.
Important rhnngM have been made In
schedule 1C , both In the rntes onyol and
on manufactured woo'eiis. In dealing with
the wool schedule , the committee hns dp-
cldcd on more liberal rates to the domestic
wool grower than It hns recommended for
the proilucer ot any manufactured niMclc
In the schcilules : It hns nl ! = o suggested for
him n more effective protection thnn ho has
over received under nny tnrlff law nf the
United States nt the time of Its ennctment.
The wool growers nro given the benefit of a
specific duty upon all classes of wool.
Under the operation of this fixed specific
duty , the amount of protection afforded will
Increase with each new decline In the for
eign value of this raw material. The com
mittee ban aimed to give the wool prower *
a rale of duty which will average from 10
nor cent to 20 per cent higher tdan the rates
of earlier tariffs. In doing this It Is giving
a higher protection upon the raw material
than upon the manufactured product In
Bvtrv cn c
Very careful consideration 1ms been given
to the compensatory duty on woolen goods ,
with the result ot reducing the compen
satory rates on low grade goods , Into whoso
mnnUfacluro more or less of other ma
terials than wool enter. On the high grade
poods the compensatory duties arc llxed on
fho same bas-ls that has obtained In all pre
vious tariffs. The house mil rate of 32 per
cent on can'et wools costing- less than M
cents n pound has created more notation
nnd opposition than any other feature of
the wool schedule. It Is alleged by the wool
Cowers thnt this low rate of duty on car
pet wools destroys the effectiveness of the
protection afforded upon the higher irrartcs
of wool by reason of the temptation It of
fers to Import these low woofs to be uped
In cheviots , golf suitings nnd other popular
fabrics which do not require line wools.
Without nndertnklm : to iilllrm the correct
ness of these allegations regarding the ex
tensive uo of these carpet woo.a for cloth
ing purposes , the committee recognized tne
fact that there Is some t > urh une made ol
them. To remove all possible ground for
com'ilalnt on this score they have IKert the
duties on class 3 , wools , ntI cents a pound
under 10 cents In value , anil at 7 cents n
pound over thnt valuation. Under these
duties the nil valorem equivalents will range
on the vnrlous cllos from IK per cent up
to ffl per cent , nnd In some Instances 70 per
cent , and they are higher than In any pre
vious law. It Is certain that under these
duties foreign carpet wo'ls ennnot lie Im
ported to take the place of domestic wools
in the cloth manufacture.
Taking this feature of the woo' schedule
Into account. It Is a fact definitely demon
strated by the market reports thnt the pro
tection p'lven the American wool growei
under the senate bill Is jjreatcr nnd mfre
effective thnn he has ever before received Ir
an Ameilcan tnrlff. Under this schedule

Many changes nre made In schedule N

HeDresentntlvea of the western states Ir
which cattle nre raised linve been for man >
years Insisting thnt n duty on hides shoult
llnd n plnce In a tariff bill which wns in
tended to protect nil American Interests
This contention has been resisted by th <
tanners of the country , who believed tha
It would place nn unnecessary burden upoi
their Important Industry. I shall not attemp
to enter In detail Into the reasons which lei
the committee to suggest the Imposition o
the duty. Speaking for myself. I bollevi
that the fearH which hnve been so emphatic
ullv expressed as to the Injurious effects o
the dutv hnve been Inrgely overestimate !
nnd thnt no very serious burden will In
placed upon either the tanning , the leathci
or the boot and shoo Industry If the amend
ment should bo adopted.
CIIANGI3 IS IN FREE LIST.
Jtnny changes nro suggested In the frei
list. Among the morn notable of these Is i
recommendation to return to the liberal pro
visions of the existing law with regard t <
the free lmi > ortutlon of books , works of art
ntc. . under certain condition- .
At the time the bill was reported fron
the committee It was stated In UH behnl
that an amendment looking to the mon
rnold development nnd extension or reclp
rocnl trade with foreign countries ) woul <
be rcDortod from the committee nt a latei
day. The committee has not yet found op
nortiinlly to prepare such an amendment
It seemed to It thnt the provL-dops of thi
housu bill In this connection would not provi
effective. It Is tbo purpose of the commit
ten to prepare n provision which will en
nblo the government of the United States
within certain llxed limits and without fur
ther legislative action , to enter upon nr
rangcments or to ncsotlute rcelproclt ]
treaties looking to nn extension of our for
elgn trade. In suggesting the striking ou
of th house provision the commltteo line
no purpose of abandoning the republlcat
reciprocity policy. It hopes to be able t (
suggest Biich provisions as will enable oui
government to greatly extend that pollcj

The committee also hopes , before Ihe bll

Mr. Vest , democratic member of the finance

Tlio senator read from a report mauci by Mr
MoKInlc-y on April 1. 1830 , Betting forth thi

senator asked , that by Increasing the burflei
of tariff taxes the farmers would bo bw'Jpci

Mr. Dlnglcy ailmllted It , Mr. Vest said , am
tried to explain It on. the ground that subsl

In tlila present treasury balance. Hut will
tlicso Items ( about J3C.OOO.OOO ) out , there re
tnalnc-d about $92.000.000 avallatde for tin

Mr. Dlnglcy nays we ought to Increase tin
gold reserve to $150,000,000. Even If then
was a deficit of JC5.000.000 which Mr. Ves
did not admit yet there waa ample In thi
treasury to meet that deficit. Why , then
should we hurry to put more taxes on thi
people , when every dollar unncccMarllj
hoarded by the government Is a crime
ngnlnst the people ? Mr. Vest said It was mosi
unfortunate that the republican side hail of
fercd no estimate of revenue until today
Inquiry had been made of Statistician Port
sa to the promised comparative statement
and ho had staled that It wns turned over tt
the senator from IthoJe Island ( Aldrlch ) . Mr
Vest asked what Iho estimate ot Mr. Fori
was on the bill.
Mr. Alrtrlch replied that the stallstlclai
stated that In his opinion neither the houai
nor the scnato bill woulil furnish sufllclcni
to meet the expemics of the government.
Mr. Voflt , proceeding , declared that the pro.
position to ralso $51,000.000 of revenue by t
tax on tea and Increasing Internal revenue
was n naked and .bold abandonment of thi
protective policy of the republican party
Whcro waa the protection to American inatiu
facttirers In these taxes , ho asked.
The senator said that the greatest suffering
In the country waa felt In the ngrlcultura
states. With abundant harvests the peopli
were -without money and were appealing u
congress for relief.
Mr. Chandler Interrupted with nn Inqulrj
as to where the vast accumulation tn tlu
treasury which Mr. Vest had alluded t (
came from. "Docu tuo senator mean thai
the Wilson bill put It there , and If not , how
did It Kit there ? " asked 'Mr. ' Chandler.
"Wo nil know , " answered Mr. Vest , "thai
It came from the sile of bonds whlc'l I dli :
not approve , but It makes no difference
where It came from. There tt Is In the
treasury , nnd what right have you to In
crease the taxes on the people when ciiougl :
Is In the treasury already ? "
The senator declared that the urgent neei !
was not for greater taxes , but for more
money and better prices. The fall In prices
must be stayed before there could bo nnj
prosperity. He mentioned ns cue source ol
evil thnt our workers wcro paid on a gob ;
bfisls and came Into competition with tlicat
paid on a silver basis.
"Tho senator from Nevada ( Stewart ]
usually makes that argument , " Interposed
Mr. GallliiRer of New Hampshire. "He has
based It usually on Japan's use of silver am
now Japan tins repudiated silver. "
"You mean Japan baa bought H , " Mr
Stewart put in.
Mr. Vest then turned to several of the
schedules and discussed them In detail
first ho took up the sugar schedule. In-
geulous tables could bo prepared ns to sugai
differentials and the tables of the senatoi
from IlhoJo Island ( Aldrlch ) were of this
Ingenious kind. The whole thing turned or
ono point , said Mr. Vest , and no ono but th <
expert Insldo the. sugar refinery was aide
to tell this. It was as to how- much raw
sugar would make 100 pounds of refine !
sugar and what amount of waste will then
be. Ono of the Sugar trust officials hni
testified before the Lcxow Investigation tha ;
profits of 21 per cent had been realized
That amount could be made only on thi
waste , and the sugnr expert was the onlj
man who know about this waste. Wltliou1
discussing the Hawaiian treaty , Mr. Ves
said that It would have been nt least mon
honorable had the committee proposed t (
abrogate the Hawaiian treaty , rather that
kill it Indirectly.
"How1 Is It possible to defend the Incrcnsi
of duty on lead. " asked Mr. Vest , "whqn tin
Lead trust s making enormous profits am
declaring 12 per cent dividends on Its stock
common and preferred. Why double the rati
on lead , a product going Into every pee
home , In order to feed the cormorant tasti
of these monopolists ? "
On earthenware and crockery the senate
said the Incrcaaexl dtitlcB were appalling. Th
framerg of the bill had undertaken to mak
the duties absolutely prohibitory. And thi
on the goods which BO Into every homo. I
was outrageous oppression , the senator de
clarcd. Referring to the wool schedule. Mi
Vest spoke of the conflicting claims of th
wool manufacturers and Mr. Lawrence , "th
she-pard king. "
As to hides , Mr. Vest said ho warned re
publican senators that hldca would go bacl
on the free list , as a result of thrifty Noi
In conclusion , Mr. Vest said there was n
dlpcsltlon to delay the consideration of th
bill. There would bo no factious oppoaltloi
and no unnecessary objection.
AMENDMENT BY CANNON.
Mr. Cannon , ellver republican of Utah
Introduced an amendment for a bounty 01
agricultural exports and spoke briefly. H
said the pending1 bill without any protectloi
to the farmer would be a rank Injustice
and would bo a violation of the pledge whlcl
the victorious party made In Its platform t
the voters last year. If tlio bill shall fall t
give some measure of justice to the farmer
then , ho will overthrow It at the flr.U . op
portunlty , declared > Mr. Cannon.
It was a singular fact , commented Mr
Chandler , that the Utah senator had loni
supported a protective tariff , and now con
eluded that the system ho advocated wa
Mr. Cannon responded that in his guile
Icasncss as a republican he had accepted th
entire protective Idea , but now , with th
responsibility of weighing the merlin of over ;
protective- proposition ho Insisted on equal
Ulng tlio advantages so that the farmer wouli
receive a share.
The tariff bill was then laid aside for tin
At 5:15 : p. m. the senate went Into execu
