DEMOCRATS "WHO DID KOT TAKE TfiB TROUBLE TO VOTE OB TO OPPORTUNITY FOR ME. CARLISLE. WASHINGTON, May vote on the pas- sage of the Tariff bill In tha House of Repre- sentatives yesterday offers an excellent compar- ison, of the discipline of the two great parties, and the manner In -which each Is handled when a matter of vast Importance Is to be disposed of. The comparison IB not 'at all to the credit of the Democrats. The Republicans now have 173 members of the House. Not that many were elected by the people, but by the simple process of unseating Democrats and putting Republicans In their places the major- ity has strengthened Itself until it now boasts eighteen more members than the Democrats. On the final roll-call yesterday two Coleman. and with the Democrats. This made a difference of four In the totals. One Speaker- did not vote. This, therefore, should have re- duced the majority for the Tariff bill to thirteen. But the bill went through by a vote of 104 to 142, giving it a majority of twenty-two, which is nine more than it ought to have been. It Is plain enough from these figures that nine Democratic Representatives were absent with- out taking the trouble to arrange pairs. The record shows that these nine men wore Bullock of Florida, Oothran of South Carolina, K11 gore of Texas, Lane of Illinois, O'Neall of Indiana, Phelau of Tennessee, Stone of Missouri, and Splnola and Wiley of New-York. They were too indifferent or too shiftless to take the small trouble to pair with their oppenents or to ask the party managers to see that they paired. The result was tho failure of the Democratic Party In the House to show Ita full strength against a lily, which its leaders have appropri- ately denounced as one of the most outrageous measures ever brought before Congress. Bui- look was said colleague, Mr. Da- vidson, to be sick, and he was given leave of absence at the request of Mr. David. BOH, but it did not seem, to occur to the latter to secure a pair for him. Cothran voted on each of the eight roll calls on amend- ments to the bill, but he Is recorded as absent when the vote waa taken on Mr. Carlisle's mo- tion to recommit the bill, and also when the vote vas taken on the bill. No pair was announced for him on either vote. Lane and O'Neall are entirely unaccounted for. Phehvn was sjpk and nobody looked out for hia pair. The aaraq is true of Bplnola. Kilgore was in New-York asking ex-President Cleveland to go to Texas next Fall and had a pair on the first amendment only. Stone Is unaccounted for; Wiley was present and voted on the motion to recommit not five min- utes before the voto waa taken on the bill, but he is recorded aa not voting on the bill, and no pair waa announced for him. A very different state of affairs Is shown, on the Republican sido of the Chamber. Out of the 173 members 164 voted for tho bill. Two voted against it. not vote. of Illinois, Peters of Kansas, Con- nell of Nebraska, Grout of Vermont, Reed of Iowa, and Turner of absent, and every one of them was paired. So on the most important piece of legislation that the Fifty-first Congress will -have to consider every Repub- lican Is accounted for, while tho Democrats fall nine behind the strength they ought to show. Tho loss of Mr. Beck In the Senate will be ad- mirably supplied by1 Mr. Carlisle, who was only ijbLe to return from Frankfort In time to move the recommittal of the McKInley Tariff billand to vote against its passage. He will take his seat in tho Senate, in time to participate In the con- sideration of tho bill in the Finance Committee Not tinehom Lace Curtains, 10 styles, 91.20 Reversible Silk Curtains, value Window Shades, complete.

Mr. Blackburn la making an effort to secure that appointment for Mr. Carlisle and, if the Democrats gen- erally desire it, It is probable that the request will ba granted. It Is not usual to lift a new Senator to so high a position, but It is also very unusual to elect a Senator who Is at once prepared to take a place beside the Sen- ators ot longest service in the body. There is no Democratic Senator now in office who can tako hold of the schedules of tho Tariff bill with so muoh familiarity as Mr. Carlisle. He is sufficiently acquainted with the discussions in the House to bo able to present all the points upon which there waa great disagreement, and If sound advice Is to have any weight with the Finance Committee In disposing of, the bill, Mr. Carlisle Will be competent to give a groat deal of much of which will be dlsbvteful to the fat" fryers" who are most interested, and who will be most anxious to keep the bill about as Mr. MoKinley gave It to them. Whether Mr. Carlisle Is chosen a member of the Finance Committee or not, he is sure to tako a muoh more prominent part In the tariff debate than any of the now Senators, and his omission from the Finance Coinmltteo will seem Inexcus- able whon he comes to participate in the discus- sions. No other Senator on the Democratic aide Is prepared to talk about a large number of tho Items of the bill with the same confidence that Mr. Carlisle has acquired by study and experi- ence. Oratory does not count for muoh when a Tariff bill Is up. A member must know some- thing definite to copo with Huoh antagonists as Allison, Aldrich, Morrill, and Sherman. When the debate Is over tmd tho bill comes to a vote Mr. Carlisle will enjoy the very unusual distinction of having voted on tho same moaa- uro in both houses of tho same Congress. The general impression among those Republicans who are disappointed because they could not got a chance to amend the bill Is tuat Mr. Car- lisle will scarcely find anything more than family resemblance between tho Senate bill and that reported to the House by Mr. McKInley and passed yesterday. Tho New- York b arley men, who wero so delighted to be put off by Mr. MoKinley with uno of thoae hear- ings that he waa always ready to extend, aro waiting about the Capitol In hope that they may >o able to convince the Senators that there Is nothing to bo gained to tho American farmer by tutting 200 per cent, additional duty on barley. There is very little Just now !n trying to irediot what will become of the MoKlnloy Tariff 'ill In the Senate. Tho Senators in general do not know, and the members of tho Finance lommlttee aro hardly any better posted. Yhether the committee will report back a measure of its own as a substitute for tho House bill as it did in tho last Congress, >r will make scores of amendments to ;ho present bill, or Indorse it In substantially Ita present shape Is purely a mat- ter of conjecture. The committee itself does not mow. Nobody in the Benato and very few in ;he House know Just what is In tho bill passed yesterday. The Ways and Means Committee sept making amendments vip to almost the last moment of Its consideration In the House, and thoae who want to know exactly what the bill provides will have to wait until they can read jver the amended measure. It can be said with perfect safety, however, that there will be numerous chanjies In the measure when it comes out of tho Finance Com- mittee of the Senate. It would not have polled 1SJ4 Republican votes In tho House it the ma- jority there hail not felt sure that It would re- ceive more consideration in tho fionato Commit- tee than McKinloy would concede to it In tbo House. Tho Finance Committee expects to be overrun with requests for changes on the part of Kepublioan Representatives and it fe not likely to bo disappointed. Strong nreaauro will be upon the Senators m- favor of numerous- amendments, but in what'oaaes the pressure will te effective nobody.oansoy. Senator Allison is an Important factor to be taken into consideration. Ho la an influential member of the ilnanoo Committee and win have a large share In shaping Its work upon the Tariff bill. If ho knows what attitude span of trotters, and he could be'seen nearly every aftemtopn speeding tola thoroughbred roaa- 8fere through this beautiful park: According to the bill.which hna passed the Senate Secretary Proctor, Senator Evarta, Chairman of the Joint Committee on the Library, and Edward Clark, Supervising Arohlteot'ol tae will consti- tute the oommittea "to contract for and locate the statue or monument on to the'United States In the-city ol Washington."

Orders were to-day to Bear Admiral Gherardl, commanding the- North Atlantic squadron, directing him' to leave Key West with all the vessels of his squadron next Sunday and proceed direct to New-York. The squadron will remain In and aboilt New-Tori until time to leave for the Army of the Potomac cele- bration at Portlond, Me.. July 3. This will be the first visit of the Baltimore, the new flagahlp of the squadron, to New-York, and ahe will doubtless attract considerable attention. Acting Rear Admiral Qeorge Brown, iu com- mand oftho Pacific station, left Ban Franclsoo yesterday in his new flagship, the Charleston, for Honolulu. Later In the year the Charleston proceed down the west coast of South America, touching at all the principal ports. Promotion has been very slow from the grade of Assistant Engineer to that of Passed Assist- ant Engineer In the navy for some years, owing to the provision of the law that there shall be only one promotion for every tw6' vacancies un- tii the number of Pusaed has been re- duced to sixty. There has been complaint among the Assistants that they were still fur- ther kept back by tho foot that a number of offi- cers are carried on the active, list who are phys- ically incapacitated for service and1 ought to be retired. la order to afford all the relief possi- ble the Secretary of the Navy to-day ordered Passed Assistant Engineers William A. H. Allen, C. J. Habighurat, E. D. Taylor, and W. R. King and Assistant Engineer C. C. Willis to appear be- fore the Retiring Hoard for examination for re- tirement. If these officers are all retired two Assistant Engineers will be promoted. It is understood that the aotlon of the Navy Department in ordering a board for the trial of the gunboat Concord next Monday was prema- ture, as the veaael will not .be ready for trial by that time. The contractors have not asked to have the trial further postponed, but will likely do so before tho day fixed, as they will probably to tako the vessel out for a private trial before the official trial. Aside from the objection to force legislation for the South that It la likely to be opposed by some Republicans who want Southern votes to pass a silver bill, a very material one has been suggested and may prove to be the most serious yotneard. It will strike "Johnny" Davenport as the poorest of all the reasons advanced. The schemes outlined in all the election bills con- template the appointment of a large number of officers. There Is no doubt that these would be Republicans, whether the neighborhood was good or not for tho production of Republicans. A Democrat who has been looking Into the Rowell and Lodge bills reports that at a moder- ate estimate it will cost to pay the officers for one election. That la an expense not taken into account by anybody who has talked about the necessity of starting the branch Re- publican machine. What a feast of accounts Davenport could bring under suoh a bill if he were permitted to be a general Director. Mr. Blair of New-Hampshire can't be kept down when there is any Imaginable wrong to be righted for any portion of Buffering humanity. His latest appearance in the Senate is as the in- troducer of a Joint resolution which proposes to punish forty-one of the States of the Union. The preamble to Mr. Blair's resolution asserts that any State-whlch deprives one-half ol its citizens of a-fair ballot and -an- honest oount'on account of sex Is a despotism, and the resolution itself provides "that any State In this Union .wHoh shall deny the constitutional and natural right to suffrage to one-half of its citizens on account of sex shall be deprived of representation in the House of Representatives of the United States in that proportion." Aa the Joint resolution has been referred to the Judiciary Committee, of which Mr. Edmunds Is Chairman, it will receive a decent burial in a plgeou hole. The President sent tho following nominations of Postmasters to the Senate to-day: G. Greene, Oxford, Chouaugo County. Bracken, Webster. C. Albertsun, Atlantic City. B. Roberts, Slatington. A.

He will hardly succeed, however, as there seems to be a atroas disposition on the part of the people to retire the Taylor family from aotlvo politics. The present incumbent, however, will moke a stiff nght and -will not give_up without a struggle. The district is There are three candidates in the field against Mr. Taylor, but John M.

County. The district is composed of the counties of Jefferson, Carroll, Harrison, and Columblana. Congressman.Taylor Is now at home working hard for a renomination. He IB working the pension "racket" most vigorously, insisting that he has secured all the pensions that have been given In the district, ana that those soldiers who have not yet been, reached will be at an early day if he la returned to Congress. Ho la also endeavoring to work two other big cards in his own political Interest. He Is laboring with the Methodists for their support at the primaries and In the townships. He Is also favored by the backing of a national bank, and one of his chief managers says that he will have the delegation from Bteubenville, the home of his chief oppo- nent, If it costs him Many formor friends of Mr. Taylor have com- bined to overthrow him. He took tho stump against the late Congressman UpdegralC several years ago, against a third term for Congress, de- claring that two terms wero all any candidate should oak. He himself now la nerving his third term and fighting for a fourth. Tbo result of the primaries this week will probably end Mr. Taylor's political life. After an enforced retirement from politics for a number of years, J. Warren Keifer IB again lu the Held for further recognition. All reports are to tho effect that the ex-Speaker will make one more effort to represent his district in Congress. NO PRIZE f'lGHTHES WANTED. VIRGINIA WILL NOT SEE HER LAWS VIOLATED WITH IMPUNITY. RICHMOND, Va., May announcement in dispatches sent out from New-York last night to the effect that John JU Sullivan had agreed to oome to Virginia and fight Joe MoAuliffe for in July and the negro Jackson for in August has attracted attention among the officials In thla State. It was repre- sented that Mr. J. M. Bailey, one of the corpora- tors ol the Virginia Sporting Association, whose charter of Incorporation waa rushed through tho Legislature in its closing hours last session, had had a conference with Sullivan with the re- sult mentioned. Mr. Bailey and those interested with him in this association claim that under their charter they have a perfect right to have on. their grounds prize fights and other sports In violation of the laws of Vircinia. If any arrangement has been made with Bul- livan and other prize fighters to slug" In this State, it remains to be seen whether they will be permitted to do so. The unanimous sentiment of the authorities and the people Is against it. Some of the best lawyers here claim that a fatal defect in the act incorporating tho company upon whose grounds it Is proposed that Sullivan shall fight, Is the failure to cite the law which It claims to ha ve repealed. This Is a constitutional requirement and will be shown when this mat- ter comes up before the courts. Under the present law prizefighting Is punish- able by Imprisonment in the Stato prison for not leas than five years and a fine of If Sul- livan or any other prize lighters come to this State for the purpose, of pounding each other they are almost certain to be arrested as soon as they nut foot on. Virginia eoll, and the validity 'of the charter will then be tested. A TALK WITH POWDERLY. HIS VIEWS ON THE MINE INSPECTOR LAW AND BALLOT REFORM. J. Davis, Berrion Springs; James H.

The Iowa Reures'ontatlves in the HOUBO wero de- cidedly lukewarm In tho faith yesterday, and the Senator ought to have a pretty clear Idea of what the people of his State think of a tariff for fat friers only. In whatever shape tho Tariff bill may be reported to the Senate ft can- not be forced through that body without a thor- ough discussion or Its provisions. It will de- upon the Donoooratio Senators to show to the couwtvy all and outs of the measure, and they will not shut off by rule which was put upon then- brethren In the House. It Is proposed, in the event that the House of Representatives concurs with the Senate in ap- propriating for a statue or monument in honor of Grant, to place the testimonial in the centre of the circle south of the President's house, and which is known as the White Lot.
