the seniito wiir ro into executive ses
aiba todlcus the Chinese treaty. The
fihancecommittee will meet Tuesday'
moirnin and after giving formal con
sideration to the tariff amendment,'
vrill Teort them back layorably. '
The oarse of debate after Tuesday
is somewhat problematical Tuesday
idr. 11 Ojjir, of Massachusetts, will speak
oh the ending tariff bill, and it is not
unlikely that Mr. Aldriah will address
th senate on the revenue features of
the measure. Last week the" clans 3
fixing the date when the bill shall take
eifisct vas passed over, and when Sat
urday came the discussion was os
tensibly over the second senate com
mittee amendment found in lines A and
? of th opening paragraph, which adds
td the house provision that there shall
be collected on all articles imported
from fdreign countries the words, "Or
withdrawn from consumption," the
rates of duty, etc .
Much of the debate of the week fol-
lowingthe introduction of the amend
ments Will be of an impromptu charac
tet concerning the changes made, and
it will loubtless be the policy of the
mlnoriy to draw out their opponents
by! caustic questions and then embroil
them; ir colloquies as to why and bow
the numerous amendments came to be
made.' f Mr. Harris, if the remarks he
has dropped are correctly interpreted,
w ill insist upon longer sessions, and if
this course is pursued, republicans
will. meeA it with such means as
happen to come to hand. They will
debater the bills at present until 5
o'clock! but after that hour will protest
aguinst the further discussion of the
measure for the day. It is not among
the impossible conditions, that if Mr,
Harris becomes persistent in his desire
for an immediate prolongation of de
bate, a mild system of filibustering may
beaaauguratedby the minority. The
1; week vvllt, no doubt, force to the front
I the line of policy to be pursued by both
aiiies, for the democrats, confident of
their ability now to.ultimately pass the
bill, wll assume the aggressive from
this time on. 1
Appropriation bills will continue to
enga e the attention of the house until
i the calendar has been cleared of moas
: ures of that character. Thera are the
! naval, agricultural and Indian bills in
sight for this week, and the legis-
lative, and judicial and general den
i ciency yet in store with the committ e
; on appropriations to be reported. The
first of the two last named bills will be
' placed on the calendar possibly the first
of next week, but the denciency bill
is not expected before the end of the
mouth.: ' . '

Washisotos, May 7. Whether the
democrats hare really . come together
and. agTeed to stand by the reconstruc-
is doubted in some well-in
formed qdarters. It has been no light
task that Messrs. Jones, Vest and Uor?
man haye undertaken. All day Satur
day they bent their energies to the
work 6 preparing the final draft of
the compromise bill, assisted by treas
ury experts, and Sunday brought for
them no day of rest. The revision
committee met at 10 o'clock at the cap
itol with an industrious contingent in
the annex, and it was only well on to
wards evening that - a conclusion was
said to have been reached, and the re
vised draft of the concession amend
ments as ready to be sent to the
printing office. With this print of the
proposed amendments all concessions
'end, and the committee is prepared to
stand Of fall by the bill thus amended,
j According to common report, these
changes are very numerous, and in
some cases almost the entire schedule
b&s beeh reconstructed. Especially is
tliis said to be true of chemical sched
ule and iron schedule. '
j j Walter Stanton and his colleagues
from New York, who have been i ere

comfortable frame of mind last even

thing else grows, the belief that the

We to sacrifice that, pray tell me what

Lfrhe I extremely suggestive secrecy

' Outside of three or four senators en

Pabis, KT-j May 7. The town is fill
ing with people, and indications! now
point to asbig ovation to Colonel Hreck
inridge this afternoon as was accorded
him tit the opening of his campaign at
Lexington Saturday. Not all of those
present are avowed supporters of the
colonel, and his opponents express no
uneasiness at the demonstration, nut-
ting it that he has marshaled his
strength in the district at the opening
of the fight Breckinridge is making
the fight of his life; his speeches are
written with a dramatic eloquence that
excells his already enviable record as a
public, speaker, and his delivery is
studied, appealing in the very
climaxes to the sympathy of
his hearers, and winning esteem
for his masterly use of rhetorical eng
lish. ; The ladies are but in force, as
they were in Lexington, and the minis
ters of the town are using the colonel's
denunciation of ministerial religion
Saturday bitterly against him. Voters
are divided, and it is possible that
trohble of a serious nature will take
place before the campaign goes much
Those lively joint debates that many
people have been looking forward to,
will, ! in all probability, nevci take
places Colonel Breckinridge declines
to meet Mr. Owens and Mr. Owens is
believed to be equally adverse to meet
ing Colonel Breckinridge. In fact, the
hatred of the men for each other is
known to be as bitter ns death. They
haven't exchanged even the niout ordi
nary civilities for several year.-.

labor has been imported to operate our
mines and do the rougher work of our
furnaces, coke overs und other 'infant"
industries. Wiihout sympathy for our
institutions, ignorant, brntal and con

requirements of .a self-respecting workr

Republican Ualaxlnii..Utratlonr KeeoUlaag
Cp.jn the l)mocrcy.
Tlic country is now reaping the logn
lr.l efTects" of the recent republican
victories. Thcso 'victories are accepted
r.s tho consequences of hard times and
tho delay in repealing the McKinlejr
bilL-; As tho republicans wish to win
more victories they are resolved to per- -petuate
the hard 1 times and continue
tho delay as far as they can. This I
bimply thj operation of the law of sup-j
ply and demand. J
When Senator Harris proposed to ex-j
tond the daily sessions of the senato lr
order to afford facilities for discussion,;
he was interrupted by an objection"
from one of the Pennsylvania senators) .
before he had time to formulate hist
proposition. Mir. Frye stated he wasj
in favor of postponing the tariff bUll
till next December, as he believed thatl
it would do more harm than the war'
did Mr. Quay said he would not work,
extra hours in order to pass a bill thafc
would be the ruin of Pennsylvania.
Dotli these senators must be credited'
with too much "ability to permit thorn
to believe the extreme things thry said
about the bill. But tho whole tendency
of their remarks was to disclose an in
clination to obstruct the passage of the
bill, and to keep the business clement
in suspense. They are satisfied that '
buainwss depression will heip their
The menace to the country from this
conspiracy arises from the fact that ,
there are democrats in it JSone of
thesj democrats are probably wdling
to allow the McKiuley bill to remain
in force. It does not seem to have oc
curred to these senators that a new
revcuue bill is absolutely ! necessary,
evca from the standpoint of protection,
to which they seem tn have become
converts. The McKinley biU'is not
yielding sufficient revenue,- There is
deficit in the treasury which musT
continue to grow iirgex so long as .th

pubiicanstraa contemplaito tins deficit

having a numcricid majority in both
houses, are responsible for iegislation.
But the democrats caunot ;permit. tho
present situation to continue without
confessing their in? bility to enact the
necessary legislatkm to carry on th
government. The democrats who aid
and abet the republican in this con
spiracy of obstruction can never in the ,
future enjoy the respect of the massra
