He carelessly glanced up toward the galleries, and a look of surprise came over his face. as he saw the slim crowd there, for the.opening of such a great event as the tariff debate usually brings out a large quota of those who have leisure enough and disposition to take an interest iii the all-important question of tariff revision. When the debate on the IM ills bill began there was a great crush for reals. Over on the democratic side Mr. Mills of Texas, sat quietly talking to Roswell P. Flower of New York. Air. AlcMillan of Tennessee, who is on the program to speak to-day. sat a few seats away from Air. Alills. After preliminary business had been disposed of Air. Ate-Kinley moved that the house go into committee of the whole for the consideration of the tariff bill. In making this motion he said that he would endeavor to close general debate Saturday evening. r Air. Alills thought tim time fixed was too short. Two years ago the democrats conceded twenty-three days for debate. and lie remonstrated against the short time now proposed. Air. Alc Finley'.- motion was agreed to. and the house went into commit tee of the whole, Air. Payson, of Illinois, in the chair. On motion of Air. Alills. the committee, granted to Air. AIcKinloy the privilege of speaking without limit, and on motion of Air. AIcKinley a like courtesy was granted to Air. Alills. When Mr. AIcKinley began his speech nearly every member was iii his Scat. but there was a slim attendance in the galleries. Air. AIcKinley said it seemed to him that no extended discussion of this great principle was necessary, for if any one thing xvu- settled by the political contest of I SSS. it was that the protective policy, as maintained bv the republican party, through a long series of years, should be secured iii any legislation to be had by congress. Ile interpreted the majority in this house to mean the incumbency of th*1 presidency by tile present executive to mean I.bat a revision of the tariff is demanded by the people, and that, revision should be along the lim* and iii full recognition of the principle and purposes of protection. [Applause.] Tho people had spoken, and they asked thus congress to register their will and embody their verdict into a public law. The bill presented by the ways and means committee was a thorough ausxver to that demand. Tt was in full communication with the principle and policy of the protective tariff. The bill had not abolished lilt* internal revenue tax as the republican party had pledged itself to do iii the event that the abolition was necessary to preserve the protective system, because the committee had found the abolition of tin* one was necessary to the preservation of the other. The bill recommended the abolition of all special taxes and Hie re-cli ic I iou of tin* tax on tobacco and snuff and ii removed the restriction on the growers of tobacco.

In 1860. after fourteen_ years of revenue tariff, the country was in a state of depression. We had neither money nor credit. Whc have both now. The accumulations of the working classes had increased. Their deposits in savings banks exceeded those of the working classes of any other country. These deposits told their own story. The public debt nf the United States per capita was less than that of any nation of the world. W e had all tuitions in agriculture and mining. Could any nation furnish such evidences of prosperity'.' Yet men were found to talk about the re straints we put on trade. Hie greatest jug amendment for the payment of the public debt (including such as are kept for the redemption of treasury notes) be retained in the treasury in excess of $110,000,000. Air. Sherman approved Plumb*s amendment. Mr. Allison suggested in the absence of Jones tin* bill be allowed to go over till Tuesday next. Air. \ est said if he was tile only senator to object.

Tile Interest iii Base Ball Dying Out—Too Many lMjy Clubs. Clite ago. Alay 7.-—Al ne It comment is created in base ball circles by a rather remarkable interview with President Spalding, of the Chicago National League team, printed in a local paper. He speaks of the apparent lack of interest tho people are showing in the games as evinced by the tremendous falling off in attend atlee at tin' games since the opening of the season. In a talk of some length he says the people have in a large measure lost interest in cities where the brotherhood has played beense they can't take interest in two national home clubs, at once. The people, he says, have lost that patriotic feeling which prompt them to applaud when their team scores a victory. The brotherhood Spalding says, according to its oxen pre dictions, should have much larger crowd than it is drawing, lie does not deny that the attendance at the league park has greatly fallen off. bm says if there were not that element in the light which kills the real interest in the game, the attendance on either side could not he complained of. “It is clear to me." said Spalding, in conclusion, “that. under the present regime, real interest in base ball will soon die out. I regret to say it. but I ani convinced this is the ease.” Spalding's hope is that the great cities will each have a single team in which to take pride, and that then baseball xviii be redeemed. _ —Some of the Grand Army boys may be interested in the following from Alex. B. Pope. A. D. 0. Commander, Dep’t Tenn. and Ga. He says:    “We    had an epidemic of whooping cough here. (Stewart. Tenn.). and Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been the only medicine that has done any good.” There is no danger from whopping cough when this remedy is freely given. It completely controls the disease. 50 cent bottles for sale by all druggists. stoop as a1 present, recommendations an* agreed to the internal taxation xviii be reduced a little over ten million dollars. The committee also recommended a provision requiring all imported articles to bear a stamp or mark indicating the country iii which such articles were manufactured. The reason that actuated ike committee xvas that it had become too common among some of the countries of the world to copy some of our bi st known brands and southern in competition with our own home made product. The next, provision recommended was one extending and liberalizing the drawback section of the laxv. Under the existing statute any citizen of tho United Suites could im [tort an article, pay the duty upon it. make it into a complete product, export it and the government refunded ninety per cont of The duty paid* on the rtixv material. The committee recommended hereafter the government should retain only one per cent, of the amoiit instead of ten percent. Thisxvould give to tin* people af the United States practically free raw material for the export trade. The committee said to tho apitalists of the country: “If you think you can go into foreign markets with free axv material xvc give you within one per out of free raw material. Y’ou try and see what you can do." [Laugher J. This provision completely disposed of what had sometimes seemed an unanswerable trgmnent urged by the gentlemon on the other side that if manufacturers only had free raw material they could compete in in the markets of the world. Air. Springer inquired whether tins provision applied to wool. Air. McKinley replied it applied to \(Tything. It xvas asserted by the minority that the bill xvould not reduce the revenues of the government, but on the contrary, it would increase the reclines. This statement xvas misleading. It could only bo valuable oil the assumption that the importations of the present year under this bill xvould bo equal to the importation of like articles under the existing laws. The instant duties were increased to a fair protective point, that instant importation would be diminished. and the revenues would be correspondingly diminished. No one could dispute this proposition. If the bill should become a law, the revenues of the government would be diminished from 850.000.-000 to SGO. OOO. OOO. After discussing the bill more in detail AIcKinley said under the duties fixed by the bill, an annual import to the amount of 815.000,OOO of agricultural products would be supplied by the people of the United States by the American farmer, rather than by the (badian farmer— aud that 825.000,000 distributed among the farmers would relieve some of the depression prevailing at present and give them confidence and courage, and increased ability to realize the mortgages upon their farms. During twelve years of reciprocity with Canada, tin United States—had bought more than it had sold. W hat Canada wanted—what the other countries wanted—xvas a fro and open market in the United States. What the United States wanted, if it ever had reciprocity, xvas reciprocity with equality. McKinley explained and deformed the wool schedule, and the paragraph in the metal schedule concerning tin plate, and then considered the free list. Referring to the growth of the carpet industry in the United States, he said the orieo of carpets had gone doxvn while the ad valorem equivalent hail gone up. The favorite assault of thy democratic free trader and revenue tariff reformer xvas to parade this high per centage and ad valorem equivalent, to show the enormous burden of taxation imposed upon the people. When steel rails were SKK) a ton there was an equivalent ad valorem duty upon them of 2S IHT cent: but when the rails were reduced to 850 a ton. because of this 2S per cent duty, which had induced our manufacturers to engage in that business, the ad valorem equivalent- went up to 50 per -cent. The democrats looked at the per cent: tho republicans looked at prices. The democrats would rather have low advalorem equivalents and high prices than high advalorem equivalents and low prices. There was complaint against the bill that it would stop ex portation and interfere with our foreign markets. Was the foreign consumer a | better consumer than the American con geed to the great! st number. J he lurgest opportunity for human endeavor, were maximums upon which our protective system rested. ;[Appl&us0*J At th*1 conclusion of AIcKinley s speech he was warmly congratulated personally by almost every republican member present, while the crv of “vote, "vote.” was heard all over the western side of the hall. Air. Alibis followed. He declared this was the first bill that had come before the American people with its mask torn off. Like a highxvayuien demanding their purses. To check importation was to cheek exportation. AN hen xxx* refused to take the products ot other nations, that refusal was an interdiction against our exports, and as we remand the carriers to a ffee exchange xxx increased our trade, rroduction. boiled down, meant more. xvork and less result, and carried out to its conclusion, it meant all work and no result. AI ills criticised the provisions bill relating to hides, tin plate and sugar and then said: “At length these gentlemen were brought to their knees at the confessional and I were bound to admit there was j widespread depression throughout the I agricultural regions. What did the bill j do to aid agriculture? it put sugar on I the free list. Two years ago the demo-} (•rats stood here and declared tile colin- j try was on the edge of a dark shadow, i The republicans ridiculed this and had I said the farm mortgage" were only further evidence of prosperity and wealt Ii. Why did not the committee treat sugar as it treated woolen goods and cotton goods and iron goods?" W hy did it not put protective duty on sugar and compel its production in this country and carry out the protective policy? The committee had found out that w heat and corn production was iii danger and increased the duty. The United States reported 90.000.00U bushels of wheat a year and i last. year imported 1,946 bushels. Of corn. GO.OOO.OOO bushels were exported and 2.388 imported. This immense importation must he stopped. Tin* committee proposed to deliver the rye farmer from all peril. How much rye did the United States import? Sixteen bushels last year. The majority of the committee cried out “let tin* porticullis fall" in order to save the cabbage patch. They have placed a duty on cabbage, and that xvas to be the panacea for all ills. The farmer could stand in Ids cabbage patch and defy the world. This was a cabbage head bill. The republicans must do something more than ibis in order to fool the farmers. "Chis bill xvould almost stop the exportation of agricultural products, aud then the republicans would hear a storm worse than a Nebraska cyclone. Agriculture xvas chained like a galley slave. When her bonds were rended and her products exported to the foreign markets, tin* price of products would be increased at home and abroad, and the increased price would extend employment to production iii all the departments of of labor. The industries of tim country were developed umil they produced fifteen percent more than could be be consumed in Tins country. The surplus was constantly increasing and the question was what congress was going to do about it, The democratic way was to let doxvn the barriers and let tin: surplus go out to the people who wanted it. aud take from other people what they did not want, and xvc did. The people want a. foreign market and they are going to have it. Discussing the sugar bounty clause, he said the pimple who raised corn and wheat and rye xvould step up to.the counter and say “we xxiii take some su^ar in mrs.” The democrats were opposed to , subsidies. He wanted to see tin* Aas of union float in every sea. lie teamed to I ce American vessels in every part. but he wanted to see those vessels go into foreign ports as free ships, representing free American institutions. The democrats xvould not impede the passage of the bill, but when the republicans^ appeared bef ole the great American people after passing their measure, rn av the Lord have mercy on their souls! * [Applause.] The committee then rose and the the house took a recess until eight o'clock this evening, xvhcn O'Donnell."of Alichi-gan. spoke in favor of the sugar section* Air.

Hi., Alay 7.—AJany of our citizens xvere surprised. Sunday noon last, to hear the distant ringingof church bells. The day xvas beautiful and the atmosphere perfect. The low. iwlloxv sounds came from the routh. and it wa-conjectured that they were prod ie-cd by the Lutheran church bells a; Golder, a little town in th** corner of Vdani" county. fully twenty-eight miles from Cartilage. It was noon when iii** "Oiinds could be heard the plainest, and tile next day a note of inquiry xvas sent to a citiz* of Golden as to xvhetiler the Golden church bells xvi re ringing a* thai hour. An affirmative answer was received to the effect that at noon on Sundays the bells chime in unison while the congregations repeat the Lord'" Prayer. These bells, four in mind * r.sar* hung in the German Lutheran church belfry" ar Goldeu. Eaeli church ha" two bells, but one of the churches has one bell that i> larger than the oilier three, and is "aid to be the largest church bell in Illinois. Two men are required to ring it. Pi" said that Golden at one lime contained but one German Lutheran church, bu' it had a large congregation. The pastor was a young, progrcssix'e man. and some of his ideas did not exactly -uh the older members- So they formed another congregation. built another church arid employed an older pastor wh«»-* ideas were more to their liking. Th* new congregation purchased a hug** bell. Not to be outdone the young clergyman*?- congregation purchased a much larger one. Then the new congregation purchased a second bell, larger than th** fir-?. At this the young clergyman waxed wroth, as did ins followers. They e-nt to the four-quarters of the country for ’lie largest ball that could be found, but no dealer in bell" bad one that would exc»*»*d the lat**5t acquisition of the new congregation in xx eight or tone. So th*- young clergyman had the inonstt r bell made to order at a com of over 81.OGO. Then the rivalry ceased, and it i- now learned that good-fellowship exist- bet ween the congregations. and the four tx*!I" peal out in unison a psalm of “Peace oil Earth. Good Will to Men.1* It Throws a Fountain of Water a Hundred Feet in the Air. The artesian well at CharleVille, on the Warrega river. Queensland, is tho newest and most remarkable instance of the natural resources of marvelous Australia. The xvell is situated quite near the railway station, but iii one of the most unlikely places that could have been imagined. Who on earth xvould have . xm etod that this artesian xvell, xvhieh is the best in tile world, or at all event" yields the large st amount of water, was sunk on the top of a sandy hummock? Yet so it is. The site was chosen by the hydraulic engineer. .T. Th Henderson. for reasons only known to himself, but which, have been amply justified. Crossing the swampy fiat leading to this hummock, attention is drawn to a wide channel cut through the drift sand, and it is explained that the overflow of water ha*I done this ere the apparatus for controlling it had been obtained. The bore itself looked a harmless enough kind j iff tiling. It might have been taken for a rather high standpipe placed in an idi-! otic position in the bottom of a hole sixty I or seventy yards long, thirty broad and | ten feet deep. But a moment's observa-I lion showed that the harmless looking | standpipe had made the holt*. As a matter of fact, the water when it was tapped rushed up in such a volume that it washed axvay the sand around the bore iii a few minutes and cleaned out the foundations of tile derrick and threatened to wreck the whole contrivance. If they had not got a plug in it pretty soon it would have washed Cle rle Ville into tho Warrega. On top of the pi pe there has been fixed a right angle bend, so that the water can be turned in any direction. When the visitors arrived at the l>ore it was seen that the water xvas trickling in a tiny stream from this bend into the thirsty sand below, but iii a few minutes the scene xvas changed. Afr. Woodley, of the Queensland Boring company, which sunk the well, opened the valve, and xvith every turn of the xvheel the thin stream thickened and deflected from its former perpendicular course. Gradually the volume of water increased and began to roar through the pipe almost like steam blowing from a safety valve. Every moment t lie sight became more interesting, and when the valve was fully opened it xvas a spectacle to wonder at. Rushing from the l*ore by its own force, ejecting itself for a distance of thirty feet in a horizontal direction, came a column of xvater white as milk in appearance. In a second or two it churned up the sand before it into coffee colored mud. This xvas the first singular thing noticed, for the falling white torrent, driving before it, as it seemed, the brown mud, produced a whimsical effect, like the pouring of milk and coffee into the same cup ut the same time. But this did not last long. In a few moments a little pond xvas forme*I, which lilied up until the level of tile surrounding ground was readied, and then there was seen at fir.it a rivulet and then a stream rushing down the hillside. When it is said that this well fills a 400 gallon tank in thirteen seconds it can readily be understood that all this did not take long. The valve xvas next closed and the right angili ln*nd removed. On the second opening of the valve there was witnessed a spectacle at once beautiful and majestic, and which xvas well worth the long journey ftoin Brisbane to see. The water rose in a nowy column, like a stalagm'te of wool, to a height of thirty feet and descended in a hissing torrent so heavy aid cl ■■'.se as to quite obscure the pipe itself. It was a marvel of beauty and a pie’nre that will nex r r bo effaced from the memories of those who witnessed it. Subsequently a nozzle one inch in diameter was attached to the pipe, and, when the water was turned on, it as-eended to a height of nearly IOO feet, returning to earth in a heavy shower or dissipating in mist clouds, through which the rainbows played with an effect that was beautiful as it was wonderful. It seemed that the visitors xvould never tire of looking at it. They simply stood and gazed, hardly saying a word, for in the presence of this marvelous phenomenon speech seemed poor and commonplace, and the mind simply gave itself up to childlike wonderment.—Queenslander.
