Once Mori on thrTariff ment However in Is Affln the Testimony In the Cane of Postmaster IVhitfleld ot Ohio Promoted to Suc ceed Chifkson WASHINGTON CITY Sept senate promptly took up the tariff bill yesterday but it diil not promptly dispose of it The orators at once began operations and tbe of fid jo u rumen b of this session oC congress now depends entirely upon the extent to which senatorial eloquence shali run DUcussiou is one of the rights dear to the senate and n right which it does uot intend to have interfered with Mor gan of Alabama was the unexpected ora tor of the occasion yesterday afternoon At the moment when the conference re porfc was taken up Morgan happened to be in the talking mood and he talked as if it WHS tho first time he had ever said anything about trie measure Upset Their It had been the understanding of the Republican members oC the finance com mittee that the only speeches to be made were those cf Carlisle and Aldrich with possibly a few remarks from Paddock Bnt Morgans unexpected onslaught up set all plans and wbile tUafc verliose gen tleman was speaking Aldrich endeavored to arrange a truce with Che Democrats by which they would agree to u vote today at 4 oclock p in Though there is no agreement it is believed a vote will be reached today but there is no telling how many more orators a day may bring forth The Adjournment Ilenolution The joint resolution providing for ad journment today at 2 oclock was report ed to the senate aiid referred to the finance committee which may report it back with a recommendation that It pass and the Republican majority lias the power to pass it but that can scarcely be used as a club over the heads ot the Dem ocrats for under the unlimited debate aystem Democrats may talk right on to the hour of 2 and adjournment with out passage of the tariff bill ot course is not to be thought of by the Republicans Some time this afternoon or toaight the prospects nre a vote will be reached and the report will then be agreed to with only two or three Republican votes against it Paddock riiufl the Track Among these few Republicans one is sure for he has said it Paddock took the floor assoon as Morgan was through and said that constrained by a sense of duty to the state aucl section which he represented ho should vote against the conference report If it was a purely political question he should cheerfully accept the judgment of the majority of his party associates but he could not con sider the great economic problem as one entirely political in its nature affecting as it did interests most vital to his im mediate constituency and the entire west The particular thing ia the bilKtbat was pizen to him was free sugar believing as he did that it would injure the domes tic beet sugar industry His speech in short way another of those which sus tain Jen Hancockd idea that the tariff is a local issue and as tha bill in his judg ment did not do anything for Nebraska he said he would vote

dell Dillon Wrathy Empreax Up a Big Check In tended for a Angry Uoa laiigigt in Trouble foreign News Miscellany LOXDOX Sept Morley speak ing at St Helens Ifist night asked the co ercionists of that constituency and of the whole country whether the state of Ire land today was what they had bargained for when they voted for the present gov ernment As au instance of the situation in Ireland he would cite the fact that John Dilloa went to address his constituents a weel ago he found the sta tion surrounded by military and police and was advised by the local authorities to be careful in his language or the meet ing would be dispersed This meant that loyal magistrates would judge his speech and this meant bayonets and clubs itoiteCoIored False What reason existed why an Irish ora tor should not bo allowed to address his constituents untracnmaled The Tipper ary prosecution hail blasted the hopes of the Unionists for it had given the lie to their rose colored pictures of the success of the governments Irish policy The last fortnights proceedings would cause all the Nationalists lay aud clerical to rally in a common cause aod would close up any gap that might have appeared in the ranks The criticisms which had been passed upon Morleys action in go ing to Ireland wera inspired by a dogin themanger policy Balfour would not go himself nor permit any one else to go The speaker went to Tipperary because he felt that the proceedings there marked the turning point in the great battle and because he felt that the government was aiout to drive a nail in its own coffin The Ruction at Tipperary Morley proceeded to describe the as sault made by the police upon the crowd at Tipperury and said that the clubbing bad no provocation but the cheers of the citizens in his honor He explained the circumstances of the assault and de clared that such violence was wholly un warranted The crowd at the court house was a harmless and insiigniRcaut one OBrien Dillon and Harrington urged that the public bo allowed to enter the courtroom but tho police responded only with blows Police Did the Rioting I myself continued Morley saw one man knocked down who was stand ing perfectly quiet and had Dot made a disorderly sound or sign It was a piece of sheer brutality I saw no stones thrown at the police as has been alleged Two English constables would have done all that was necessary to guard the access to the court and peaceably preserve order Tlie rioting was wholly on the part of the police Morieys statement showed that if Balfour produced in the house of commons what hath been published as the official version of tile affair Morley would take direct issue with it and insist that it was false from beginning to end Severe on the Irish Secretary Morley was very severe in his reflec tions upon Balfour He said it was no wonder that in regard to the secretarys methods the Irish do not respect the law and do hate the government Col Cadrlell the presiding magistrate at the Tipperary hearing asserts that John Morley himself appealed to him to exclude the crowd from the court house The Trial of Dillon Et Al The trial of Dillon and his confreres made poor progress Healy counsel for the defendants announced that he pro posed to refer the question of Mr Shan nons eligibility to sit in the case to the high court of justice at Duolin He in sisted that they had the best of reason to doubt the fairness and impartially of Mr Shannon nnd wanted the case suspended until the appeal could be decided Adding Insnlt to jlnjury It is likely that the has not been heard of the collision between the police and the people in front of the court at Tipperary last Thursday It is reported that the government intends to prosecute many of the persons who were present in the crowd for inciting a riot Harring ton member of parliament for the mid dle division of Tipperary who received a severe blow over tUe head from a police mans c lub is mentioned among those likely to be prosecuted AN EMPRESS IN DUDGEON Stnpld Clergymen Lose a liheral 61ft from Royalty BERLIN Sept curious contre tempfcs happened to the empress during her visit to Breslau The empress hav

to the church The clergy and cloisters waited for the kaiserine until 10 oclock at night and then sent to the palace to to make inquiries when they were informed that the contretemps was owing to

stack DISCIPLINE IN THE FAMILY An Interesting at the National FrlBon Congress CINCINNATI Sept ihe national prison congress yesterday Warden Brush of Sing Sing penitentiary delivered an addres on the restraint of children in which he said A large share of the men and boys who are incarcerated in our Etate prisons and peniteutiaries are there because they had no proper discipline in the family and were allowed by overin dulgence to play truant instead of attend ing school nnd therefore received no school discipline Often when I have been asked what are the causes or partic ular cause that send most of our men to prison I have of late years invariably an swered The want of family discipline As the Twig Is llout tha Inclined The indulgence of the father and mother who allow the child to grow np without any discipline to form character leads almost inevitably to evil ways and consequently to prison The child even ot tender years who is indulged in its natural waywardness and who is allowed to say to its father or mother I will or I wontis in a fairway to become an inmate of oar ptnal institutions Parents are also responsible for the waywardness of their children which leads them into crime from a practice of deceiving them The intelligent ciiiM when deceived by its parents in suialt things is likely to form evil habits which in its future life will not be easily eradicated Opposed to Indefinite Sentences It i a curious facD that nriny if not the most ot otir worst criminals are our best behaved prisoners This shows con clusively that it in nearly if not quite possible for our prison nfliaen to judge from the conduct of a man in prison what his conduct will be when released from prison This is the strongest argument in my mind against the indefinite sen tence For if a man is to be released on his good behavior m tha prison and his apparent reformation while there we may and very likely will release many of our worst criminals while men of lesser tact who transgress the rules for want of firmness and decibion would remain in prison for a long time if not for life Hard Work a Necessity The first thing necessary to form a dis cipiine among prisoners is just the same as is done out side work in which the prisoner can see something grow In his hands and form a perfect article as a production of his labor I consider that work which will not do this is no better than idleness No prison discipline is complete that does not give tha inmates a fair education Every man discharged Bhould be able to read and write If the family discipline the school discipline and the discipline of our police and courts could he certain and severe as it can and should be made in our prisons the character of the men would be so formed that our prisons would soon be come depopulated Hardly Sufficient Explanation Commissioner Harris said he had inves tigated the causes of the now well recog nized fact that crime increases with edu cation and his conclusion was that ar rests for
