House on Tiienday The fjproar Junt Before llbo Vote WASHINGTON CITY May tariff debate is over and the battle Is won Of all who took part during the last eight or ten dnys the greatest amount of credit on the Republican sida is due McKinley for his excollant leadership Though at times theru were many close calls and ono or two very ticklish occasions MoKlnley never lost his and by his able man agement averted a failure or defeat Tues day night with a tired baoao and a fret fill minority which tried Its best ta prp voko and dlscomflt him he carried the bill through the lost storm and landed it safe ly in smooth waters McKlnloy Was Equal to the Occasion He saved the sugar schedule ns prepared although at times It looked as if the kickers would outnumber him In the free art light which occurred when the clock allowed the hour bo be near mid night McKinley and Us seemed an fresh and as full of fight as they weru twelve hours before Wltli Cannon nnd sevunil of the Republican leaders against him McKinley fought the fight for the artists and won iaven when John Allon the funny man tried to break up the dignity of the house by Hinging a par ixly on llockaBye Baby Kluiiueuoe Made Them Tired Seldom does such a scene occur as the one of late Tuesday night In the house as it grew near 11 oclock Theart amendment camo up and although the members were tired nnd sleepy they stirred themselves up and the debate was spirited and inter esting The galleries were very nearly full tnd a remarkable thing was that the ladles in the crowd remained to the very end of the session While the vinegar amend ment was under debate it seemed as if ev ery one present intended to speak until the majority got tired and whenever one arose to address the house he was greeted with criee of Ob my I You are not going to speak are you When one said he In tended to review tlvo eight days debate there was nn actual groan and cries of liunt All on Hnnrl In the Morning Rut the long session of Tuesday did not have any effect of making the attendance meagre yesterday When tho hour of as sembly arrived every member was In his scat nnd the giiljorioswas crowded Kvoryhody above and below wore ripe for fun and fun ruled the last hour of the debute Democrats and Republicans saw tho fully of attempting to ingraft nuy amendments cm tho bill and so tho time between 11 and 12 was devoted to the ac commodation of sovwral members who had a few words and last appeals to utter The house was in an uproarious mooil from tho start Chairman Grosve nor wns wholly incapable of maintain ing order and finally gave it up and let the scene run riot It No Vnf to Talk Nobody WIIH in the humor for that is to listen to Baker hftd a time of It gutting his amendment before tlui house to impose ns high duty on for eign products imported into this country as are charged by foreign countries on similar products of this country Joe Wheuler replied to Baker with some lory remarks on lager beer which cre ated uproarious laughter on tho Demo cratic side Anduraou of Kansas got off a fvw words about the farmer and lumber but the noise was so groat that nobody could understand a word ho said Ander son lifted his voice until It nearly split the dome but the only sound of recogni tion ho could got wore mock cries of loud er from the Democratic side Uuttorwurtlis Parting Shot Tim scono at this time was very exoit ing People In tho galleries rose and every member was on his feet Above all then din rose the great voice of Ben Butter worth who finally found opportunity to jjet off another shot at tho lack of time ac corded for the consideration of so impor tant a measure Tho Democrats greeted this final shot with a storm of applause In the midst of which Henderson of Iowa after wildly beating the air for a moment demanded that the remaining few mo ments be given to voting on amendments without debute This was greeted with jeers and catcalls Brewer of Michigan who has a mighty voice got the floor to say a few words in favor of the bill in gen eral but nobody wanted to hear him and the louder he talked tho thicker came the mock applause and catcalls The Curtain Ulnjts town It was three minutes to 13 when the bell rang for the fall of the curtain on as laughable a scene as was ever witnessed in the houso The chair stood watch In hand keeping up an incessant din with his gavel Members were shouting order from both sides of tho chamber Repub lioims were cheering and waving aloft books and papers Democratswere laughing and showering joers across the aisle The space in front of speakers desk was jammed as well as the middle aisle In the midst of this excited throng stood the tall frtrm of Briggs of California wildly gesticulating and trying to lift his voice above the din Members nearest him slapped his back and yelled Go it Briggs Hurrah for Briggs Louder Brings lifii Stills the Clamor Amid this storm the minutehand point ed to 13 and Speaker Head mounted to his chair and seizing the gavel brought it down with a thwack and the great tariff debate was over It took him about a minute to restore order and get every member in his seat and then amid al most breathless silence the bill with its amendments was reported to the house with a recommendation that It pass While yet silence reigned McKinley rose and said I demand the previous question upon the engrossment and third reading of the bill The demand was to and then fhe voting on amendments be gan tho Democrats with the help of An derson of Kansas Featherston Kelly S Taylor of niUu DeBWn nuk Henderson Lacey

house The Bill In tJnc Senate The tariff bill will probably reach the senate today or tomorrow The greater part has been through the engrossing clerks hands In anticipation of its pass age The senate finance committee has not considered formally how it will deal with the tariff question but informal talks among members develop the belief that extended hearinge will not be given A few of ithe representatives of more im portant industries may be heard from time to time but moat of the arguments will be submitted in writing Allison will have charge of the bill The general ex pectation is that the bill will be reported to the senate by the middle of June cer tainly before the end of July ORIGINAL PARCELS A Kansas Definition When They Contain Tanglefoot BOTTLES WILL NOT PASS THE

facts in the case and the language made use of by the court require It is thelblrelgn or nonresident importer who sells in the original unbroken packages that by the decision nnd no one else Where there is evidence that the person claiming to sell intoxicating liquor la original packages is not a foreign or nonresident importer or the agent ol one the person be promptly arrest ed and placed
