finance committee urging appropriations to carry out tlm PanAmerican congress rec ommendations In thocovirse of his re marks he was roprescnted by the special as saying of tho Meiiinley bill It iii the most dangerous if riot the most infamous meas ure that was ever concocted by any party The men who vote for this bill will wreck the Republican party If I were in the senate I would rather have my right arm torn out of its socket than vote for this bill IVltnt tlie Really Said The United Press is authorized to say that the discussion above referred to was not in relation to the general schedules of the McKinley bill Mr Blaine was urg ing the necessity and opportunity ob taining the markets of the South Ameri can states free for the products of this country He claimed that to do this the free sugar clanise should be modified that instead of opening our markets free to South American sugar the freedom of our market should be made contingent upon the Latin American states opening their ports to our products His remarks were in the line of the proposition laid down in his letter to Coney of Augusta Me printed in these dispatches of the 17th inst Of THE SILVER SQUABBLE Reed
