Shoo and Lcathtr Men Claim Xo Tariff
WASHINGTON. Nov. 28. -Preliminary to
the hearing tomorrow before the ways and
means committee on the tariff schedule
covering oundries, which Includes hides and
learner 1 manufactures, a conference was
held here tonlg-ht by representatives of the
shoe and leather trade. Delegates were se
lected to address the committeee tomorrow
anl urge that hides be put back on the
free list, a duty of 13 per cent being lm
poaed under the present tariff.
The principal claim they will make Is
that the large packing eetabllshments do,
rive the chief profit from the tariff on
hides snd that ths farmer and cattle raiser
deeds no protection, because the foreign
supply of hides Is so limited by natural
conditions thst It can never supplant the
domestic supply, which Is exhausted by the
demands of the horns market. The largo
packing Interests control upwards of 70
per cent of the wet, salted, sole and belt
ing leather hides produced In this country,
they will argue, and possess, therefore,
almost a monopoly of tho dornestlo supply
of such raw material, and aided by the
duty on hides, can control the f.rodu.ctjoa
of leather made therefrom

Watching and waiting tor and celebrating
the result of the Cuban election, held No
vember 13. Is thus described by La Luc ha,
the leading newspaper of Havana:
"The Americans who watched some of
the things occurring last bight must have
recalled election times at home, for the
street cars which traversed the city loaded
to the gunwales with enthusiastic liberals,
banners and music, evoked many anilles of
approbation and encouragement. The senti
ment, "Go It, boys; may tho best man win."
was In the hearts of all the Americans who
witnessed the plentiful display of enthusi
asm. Many were the cars which were thus
losded, and the cheera and shouting her
alded their approach when they were sev
ersl blocks dlstsnt. On some of these csrs
persons were perched on the roofs, so
anxious were they to climb Into whst they
consldorod the band wagon.
"Skyrockets were generously supplied and
used In making the night merry, and It was
tho fact that a number of ekyrockets were
on one of these loaded cars which caused
sn accident which fortunately did not prove
fatal to any of the crowd. One of the
young men on a crowded car as It wss In
the vicinity of Ban Juan de Dloa park, set
off a rocket which waa held In such a
manner as to strike the roof of the front
platform where a portion of the crowd was
standing. As the rocket hit the roof burn
ing simxks were scattered over the heads
of those standing beneath. The flaming
rocket then fell to the floor sputtering and
making mad rushes like a scared cat be
tween the feet and legs of the dancing
crowd. Several other rockets which were,
on the platform wero Ignited and the ball
opened In great shape. The easy Cuban
walls was not witnessed, however, for tha
highland fling waa never danced with mora
abandon than It waa cm the car last ntght.
"Those who did not take an active part
In the car rides gathered In groups and
discussed the situation, of they were where
they could do so, they cheered the cars aa
they passed and were responded to In a
"The most gratifying feature of the even
ing was ths perfect order which wss ob
served throughout the city. There were no
clsshes of any kind and when the news
resched this city of the shooting affair in
Clenfuegos regret was expressed on all
sides over the unfortunate occurrence. Dur
ing the evening many drove In carriages to
the homes of their friends who are candi
dates before the people to congratulate
them on the victory.
"The stores are all closed, but unlike
days of this kind In the statea the cafes
are open and doing business without having
any apparent 111 effect on the public tern-per."
