Proposition That Free Sugar Shall Be Made The Give the Tariff lilll Con TW11 Ask for an In come Tax WASHINGTON CITY July Prye yesterday received the following let ter from Secretary Blaine in reply to his rreceut inquiries respecting the effect of reciprocity on the sugar trade with Cuba and Porto Rico You ask what assur ance I huve as to Spains willingness to anter into reciprocal arrangements of trade with the United States Your question surprises me for you can not have forgot ten that only six years ago the prime min later of Spain in Ids anxiety to secure free admission to our markets for the sugar of Cuba and Porto Rico agreed to a very extensive treaty of reciprocity wi th Mr John W Foster then our minister at Madrid It Somewhat Singular A year very admirable treaty of reciprocity was negotiated by General Grant and Mr William H Tres cot United States commissioners with the republic of treaty well con sidered in all its parts and all whose results would I believe have proved highly advantageous to both countries In view of the pending discussion It is a somewhat singular circumstance that both thego treaties of reciprocity failed to secure the approval of congress and failed for the express reason that both provided for the free admission of sugar Congress would not then allow a single pound of sugar to come in free of duty under any circumstances whatever nomarkable Change of View And now the proposition is to open our ports free to everybodys sugar and to do it with such rapidity that we are not to have a moments time to see If we cannot make a better trade by which we may pay for at least a part of tha sugar in the products of American farms and shops Our change of opinion has certainly been remarkable in so brief a period Indeed the only danger of our not securing ad vantageous treaties of reciprocity now is the possible belief on the part of thoie countries that we are so anxious for free sugar that by patient waiting they can se cure all they desire without money and without price He Didnt Spoiik Too Late Mr Blaine goes on to say in reply to suggestions that his reciprocity proposals came too that he talked with the ways and means committee Oct 10 last and tried to convince them that such a plan would be expedient but failed He controverts the proposition that the re ciprocity idea is opposed to protection and says it is just the other way because it would supply a market for our products and pay for our imported sugar by barter which I think is the highest form of pro tection The secretary closes as follows You have recently received congratula which I cordially carry Ing the shipping bill through the senate Do you not think that a lino of ships gen erously aided by the government will have ft better prospect of piout and for perman ence if we can give to them outward car foes from the United States and not con no them to inward cargoes from Latin America TALK GOES ON IN THE SENATE Plumb Notice He Doesnt the Bill too Much The senate took another turn at the tar iff bill yesterday and the tone of the de bate was not eucouraging for those who hope to see that measure disposed of with any degree of rapidity Vance said that tho bill might reduce revenue but would not reduce this taxes McPherson moved that the bill be recommitted with Instructions to report a bill to reduce the revenue and equalize duties so that the average rate of duty iihall not exceed tho war tariff of 18C4 He said that the aver age referred to was 8639 per cent Allison a Reduction Sherman criticising Mcphersons re mark about the avarnge of 3069 said that H was upon all goodu dutiable and un dutlablo and that only 10 or 15 per cent of imported goods was on the free list Under the pending bill 50 per cent was on the free list arid the other half on goods dutiable and undutiable would only be 17 or 18 per cent Allison asked if McPherson was willing to have the duty on earthen ware and glass ware reduced 15 per cent below the pending bill McPherson said he would be willing to have it reduced 10 per cent Allison snid that if the aanatoiL from New would movei the reduction he would be lound in sympathy with it Plnmb Apprehensive of Deficit Plumb expressed the belief that there might bo a deficit of fifty millions next year He thought that possibility had been overlooked in framing the bill He gavo notice that he would offer amend ments to the bill to increase the revemie from other sources He would never vote for a bill that he thought would be a cow srdly evasion ot the duty imposed upon the senate to provide adequate means to meet the expenses of the government He would propose a duty on Incomes he would propose an increased tax on alco holic liquors and he would propose amendments that would prevent the formation of trusts An Estimate on the Reduction Aldrlch expressed the opinion that Mc Pherson was not serious in his motion and remarked that if it were carried out into law the effect would be to increase tho revenue by over the amount that would be produced hy the pending bill In reply to a question of Gorman Aldrich said that if tho importations for the next fiscal year Trare the same amount as for the last fiscal year the revenue un der the pending bill would be reduced about 120000000 He could not give the figures as to expenditures PROCEEDINGS IN CONGRESS of the Transactions of tha Na tional GITT July sen ate began yesterday with hunting for a quorum and after some delay the sergeant atarms found one A memorial waa pre sented from Grand Army men expressing at the action of congress in allowing as a pension attorney fee under the dependent pension bill and say ing that Washington City agents were offering local attorneys half the fee in all cases secured Cockrell presented pro tests from Missouri against the enor mity of the proposed federal election bill A similar memorial also pre from Adrian Mich The bill was referred to the privileges and election committee The senate then proceeded with the tariff debate and McPherson moved that the bill be recommitted with instructions to report taxa tion Without action the senate nd journed The house spent the day debating the senate amendment to the sundry civil bill relating to irrigation lands but took no action At 5 p m recess was taken to 8 8 oclock at which time private pension bills were to have been considered but nothing was done That Lightning Counting Machine WASHDJOTOS CITY July elec trical machine used iu counting the cen sus returns ia not giving as satisfactory results as was expected It works rapidly and wonderfully and ig a great labor saver for the 1700 eleaks in tha census bureau But it is a curious matter of ex periment that the same machine will never count the same pile of returns with the same result Thursday under a chal lenge thirteen tests were made and tho only result at all accurate was a singlo footing in one district that was the samo as that reached by counting in the old way by the clerks The lottery Mast Go Perhaps WASHINGTON CITY July housei postoffioe committee has agreed upon a substitute bill in lieu of a number of pend ing bills adverse to lotteries

special to the World from Wilmington Del says Ex Secretary Bayard was seen at his home by a World representative who asked him to review the published correspondence ol the department of state in the Behring sea controversy He declined to do so at this time for the reason that the published correspondence was of too fragmentary a character to form the a jnst criti cism Inm pleased said Bayard to see that the matter has reverted to the condition in which I left it on my retire ment from the state department Mr Blaine is entirely right when he says that Lord Salisbury accepted and agreed to the conditions proposed by the United States Declines to Muko a Criticism I am not disposed to criticise my own government iu a controversy with a for eign power even though I may hold opin ions differing

Ezetas standard and make a com mon defense of their country A neutral attitude will be maintained by the Mexican government for the pres ent Effect on Nicaragua Canal Back of this whole question there is one of great importance to Americans naturally the outlook for the Nicaragua canal and the effect upon that enterprise resulting from war It is the generally accepted belief in Central America and a thoroughly well founded one too that if Guatemala succeeds in overcoming San Salvador and also Nicaragua she will load down the waterway with so many conces sions as to make its completion impractic able if not imposible The many Ameri cans who are down there are to a man in terested in the defeat of Guatemala for this reason Honduras Ready for Trouble NEW YORK July Herald has the following from
