Arkansas beginning and denying at the start that the election of 18W had decided iu favor of protection He said the people had declared in favor o tariff reform He sympathized with Plumb whose constituents wishes were disregarded in the present bill nnd hoped this fact would teach them to love their southern brothers better as fellow sufferers Berry bewailed the condition of the farmer and workingman the former weighted down with Mortgages and both forced to pay high prices for necBKsuries because of the burdensome tariff which was made worso by the bill under discussion Made Wilson reel Uncomfortable Wilson of Iowa replied to Berry and ex pressed the discomfort which he always felt at hearing a senator discuss a subject in regard to which he had so smali an amount of definite information as that evidently possessed in regard to the subject ot protection He read for Berrys information an article from Fort Dodge Iowa Messenger contrasting the condition of the farmer nnd working man now and ten years ago and showing that Will bB tha great reduction that has taken place in prices of household and agricultural Implements and of necessary commodities within that decade The general sum ming up of the article was that never in uunmn history would a days labor pur chase as much as it would today Oppressed Husbandman As to tho talk about depression in farm Ing interests and about tho enormous amount of farm mortgages Wilson said that tho farm mortancres loivo had been published at that he had a profound conviction when he saw that publication that it was not true that he lad set about to discover where the in rentor of that falsehood had obtained his data and discovered that the snm named wiw tho appraised value of all tho farms n the state The outside limit of mort jages was 451000000 as ascertained by an nquiry made by the governor Advocated Free Iron Ore Gorman pleaded for free iron ore during he debate and quoted Maj Bent of Pennsylvania who said that with free ore he oould sell pig iron in Liverpool and steel rails in London He declared that 10 steel could bo produced east of the Al eghnnies because the cost of transporting he ore from the Luke Superior regiou amounted practically to prohibition layne said this was an error last yeai 400000 tons of the Lake Superior Besse nor ore possibly the best in the world iad been brought east of the Alleghauy mountains and used by the furnaces there torman however asserted that the cost f assembling tha raw materials was greater than If wo had them free of duty A WINDY DAY IN THE HOUSE Tho Speaker Airnlii Attnohvil This Time from a Nnvy Yurtl Point of View The house indulged in another partisan ebate tho foundation therefor baing the nauguratfon of work in the navy yard at ittery Me A large appropriation passed jongress some weeks ago for this yard and few days ago Cummings of Now York ntroduced a resolution to inquire what ecessity there was for resuscitating that ard implying that the purpose was to se It to help elect Reed to congress again le declared yesterday that the ships to be epaired there ought to be sent to the bone nrd but that the exigencies of Repub oan politics required that they be kept float for purposes oE repair so that they ould always be on bund when voters wanted in tho navy yard Suspicions of the Committee His resolution ha said had been hanged so that the reply of the secretary f tho navy would be sent to the comrait ee on naval affairs whose chairman had iaraoterizad his Cummings resolution a perfect rot The men who would be mployod in the yard would come princi ally from Maine and tho object of their mployment was to get votes for Thomas racket Reed The whole scheme was to se executive power for political purposes asked when the secretary of the navy ad been directed to repair the ships re Jrred to Boutcllo Matters Boutelle said that the question demon strated the ignorance of the gentleman of the subject he had discussed He felt like making au apology for replying to such a remarkable demonstration The secretary of tho navy was obeying tho di rect mandate congress and for the ne cessity of the work ordered he referred Cummings to the report of the chief of the bureau of yards and docks The na val committee had unanimously recom mended the appropriation the Democrats on the committee voting for it Cum mings resolution was founded on a chron ological error Although tho elections generally were held in November the congressional electioos in Maine were held In September so that if there were 10000 men transported to the Kittery yard not oneof them could have voted for Speaker Reed or the representative from Xew Hampshire In concluding Boutelle ob served that the greatest majority ever castfor Thomas B Reed was 3432 over his Democratic opponent and 1828 round AN riCHINESE LEGISLATION A Bill Reported That Hitt Tlolatw Treaty WASHDGTOS CITY Aug house committee on foreign affairs yesterday re ported to the house with a favorable rec ommendation a substitute for the bills re cently introduced to prohibit Chinese im migration The substitute is accompanied j by a report prepared by Morrow of Cali fornia Hitt of Illinois the chairman of the committee was the only member who dissented from the committees report He submitted a brief statement to the effect that he could not consent to the recom meudation of the substitute because the bill is in conflict with a treaty now In force to which the faith of the States is pledged Morrow in defense of the measure quotes statistics to prove

Paul presented to Secretary Noble yesterday the results of their examination of the evidence upon which the recent order was based direct ing a recount of the population of the city Their report proved that the insur ance map which was used by census office to establish in part the defective ness of the census returns was entirely unreliable The committee however ad mitted that in nine of the districts the returns were so defective as to warrant either an entire recount of those districts or else a careful verification of the sched ules They approved a recount of the en tire city Superintendent Porteir who was present said that an examination now in progress of the returns of thirtyfour districts including the nine referred to by the committee and he thought that his action in

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
