Aug. ll.—During the hour and a half occupied in the delivery of Mr. Mitchell's speech in the senate this morning, the two Pennsylvania senators had frequent conferences with ^jr vest on the democratic side of the thamber. Mr. Plumb a1 sew had a long lDd earnest talk with him. Mr. Quay afterwards flitted around his own side of the chamber and exchanged views with some of the senators from the new states.

IHE REPUBLIC’AX SENATOK1 \ I. < Via l s. Washington. Aug. l l.—The republican senatorial caucus to-night was the most important yet held. It was a very inharmonious meeting. Quay and Cameron both made speeches and strongly represented the political inexpediency of doing anything with the federal election hill at present and urged the necessity of'an early adjournment from a party standpoint. Aldrich, also one of those who desire and adjournment. was the spokesman for those senators who View the embarrassment and delay over the tariff bill as outweighing all other considerations in deciding the policy to be pursued. Plumb also spoke and. it is understood, opposed the election bill out and out. For the friends of the bill which caused these numerous caucuses Hoar and Silencer wero champions. The latter made a strong speech, which some denominated “reading the riot act." He warned the senators they must meet the issue squarely. The election bill must be passed now at this session or not at all. It would be futile to go before tho country with the statement that this bill would be passed at the short session. It was of supreme importance that it should be passed at once His remarks brought out sharp retorts from several opponents of the bill. The discussion showed there was a greater number of senators than had been generally supposed who, for one reason or another, are willing to adjourn without the elections hill being voted upon. The number of these senators is placed at fifteen. Finally about half pa-t ten. an adjournment was proposed and finally forced by a majority vote. The Senate. Washing roN, Aug. 11.—The senate joint resolution, appropriating for tin* relief of destitution in Oklahoma the unexpended balance of the appropriation made last April for the relief of the district overflowed bv the Missouri river, was passed. The tariff bill was then taken up, the pending question being on the amendment to reduce the duty on tin plate. Mr. Mitchell addressed the senate in favor of a high protection system as being the policy to which the republican party stand' committed. Mr. Plumb gave notice of an amendment which he would offer, to strike out the provision imposing a duty on tin pilate, and add a provision to pay to the manufacturers of tin plate made in the Fnited States a bounty of one cent per pound.

IU doubted very much that it would permanently introduce into this country the manufacture of tin plates in quantities sufficient for domestic consumption. He had no doubt that in time, if the maniifu' titre of tin plates were entered upon in this country, one of the results would fie to reduce the price, but he did not find in the present situation any ground for reasonable presumption that there would be. in one year, or five years, or ten years, enough tin plate made in the United Statos to meet the local demand. He was willing to “begoff” and to ask those men who wore now preparing to manufacture tin id ate not to exercise power which they had got in the American congr<‘s< and not force the increase of duty on all tinware used in the country on every tin cup. on every tin plate and coffee pot and on every yard of tin roofing in the United State* and instead of the increased duty, to take a bounty of on* cent per pound or two cents if necessary. If they were reasonable men they ought to be willing to do that. After considerable debate a vote was taken and Vests amendment was rejected. Mr. I’luin!) offered the amendment of j which he had given notice—to strike out J the clause imposing a duty of 2 2-10 cents a pound on tin plate (reserving the other part of the proposition as to the bounty) hut finally withdrew it and offered anither. making the duty on tin plate one cent tier pound and providing a bounty of one cent per pound on tin plate manufactured in the United States.

Aug. 14.—The side 'show to the democratic state convention denominated and called the union labor industrial state convention met at the court house to-day. Two districts, the second and fourth failed to send any delegation and as far as number or harmony was concerned the convention was far from being a success. Such double-deckers as Campbell and Sovereign tried to move things but didn't succeed as they had expected. W. IL Robb, of Creston, was selected temporary chairman and read an address on the political situation which was ordered published in the loiva Tribune. FU I*. Brown, of Neola. Pottawattamie county, was elected secretary. A committee on credentials was appointed. Their report made in the afternoon session showed one hundred and one union labor men, eight Knights of Labor, twenty-five Farmers' Alliance, one Granger and one league delegate present. General Weaver was here in full force. A hasty individual made a motion to place him on the committee on resolutions. But this was not according to the Weaver program, a* by identifying himself too strongly with the convention he would hurt his chances with the democrats. In the seventh districts he has an eye upon tin' congressional nomination. Now since all irons have cooled he eon-deeendcd to give the handrail of delegates and a few speculators one of his characteristic bulldosing speeches. Ile assured the convention that the prospects were good for the success of the independent movement throughout the west and south. During his trip through Kansas he had ample opportunity test the feeling* of the people there aud from this and action of tile Topeka convention he was free to predict that every congressman and four-fifth* of tim legi*)a-ture of Kansas would be union labor men, notwitestanding the fact that the republicans claimed eighty-two thousand majority. Ile spoke of meetings held in that state where he had rddressed thousands of people and had seen processions five miles long. The movement is not confined to Kansas. Nebraska is alive and independent* there are confident of electing two out of three congressmen. South Dakota will carry the day for the union labor men, and throughout the whole country the tendency is not toward parties, but away from them. He attributed this to education and referred humorously to the Husk argument, and said that it was the best thing that ever happened to the Union Labor men that they did not succeed at fir*t. The The people arc not so crude now and have a better understanding of gover-mental affairs. He urged all independent* to go forward working upon their own line, adoring them that by so doing they will not only succeed but have the respect of all citizens of this state. Weaver played the demagogue in hi* accustomed style. The state central committee was announced as follow*: Milo Reno, of Jefferson, Justice Dunked, of Buchanan, L. S. Wood* of Marion, ti. S. drakes of Wapello, E. IL Gillett* of Bolk, W. Ii. Robb of Union. G. II. Griffith of Cass, W. W. Gray of Webster, A. Westfall of Woodbury. Mr. Griffith, of Ca*' county, moved that Gillette be elected chairman of tjie *tate central lommittee: carried. Resolutions were adopted a* follows: We heartily endorse the demands and declaration of principle* adopted bx the Farmer*’ and Laborers' Industrial Union of America at the meeting at St. Louis on tlte sixth of December lii't. and we favor tile government loan* to be made directly to the people at a rate of interest not to exceed txvo per cent annually. We denounce the McKinley tariff bill a* grossly unjust to taxpayer* and producers; the lodge bill a' designed to deprive the people everywhere of their lawful rights to control the election of their officers, and we denounce the userpations of Speaker Reed a* a bold attempt to destroy the independence of our representatives in congress and to arrogate to himself the control of federal legislation. in utter violation of the constitution and the established usages of a century. We favor the Australian ballot system and demand it* adoption in this state and we denounce the Int** general assembly for withholding it from the people. We denounce the present congress and particularly the Iowa members thereof for defeating the bill for free coinage of silver. We demand the immediate passage of a service pension bill. In the election of treasurer Lange, of Wayne, presented the name of William Lee White, who was the democratic nominee and tried hard to deliver the convention to democracy for this position but under the lead of Engle who has it in for the democrats for not nominating hint at Ottumwa it was soon evident that such would not be done and bis name was withdraw. Boston, Aug. ll.—Aside from the sessions of the national encampment and Woman’s Relief Corps the greater part of the G. A. R. celebration is over.

The report of tile pension committee, which detail* the work of its members in securing and aiding pension legislation in congress and its successful efforts in regard to the passage of tile disability pension bill was presented and adopted. General Sherman was requested to step upon the platform, and as he walked down the aisle there was a storm of applause and cheers. General Sherman then in a feeling manner presented Comrade Warner with a beautiful candelabra clock and mantel ornaments. Warner eloquently responded. A committee from the Woman’s Relief U'orps was received. Mrs. Knowles, it* chairman, made an address arui it wa* responded to by General Alger. The report of the pension committee details the work of it* members in regard to the disability [tension Dill that became a law July 27. “This law.” says the report, “while not in its present form the bill presented by the committee preserves the most important feature thereof and while not just what was asked, is the most liberal pension measure ever pilled by any legislative body in tin* world and will place upon the rolls all the survivors of the war whose condition* of health are not practically perfect.

THE KAISER WANTS TO KNOW. Thirty Thousand Darrels of Whisky Burned at Louisville, Kentucky. Et isville. Aug. ll.—The immense distillery of the Kentucky Distilling company, owned by Barkhouse, i* now on* tire, with indications that it will be totally destroyed. Tri the warehouses are thirty thousand barrels of whisky, all of which will be lost. The whisky is valued at 8* >00,000 and the buildings will run this up to $100,000 more at least. The distillery building proper is now doomed and the cattle sheds are a!*o burning. The warehouse is gone, and thousand* of barrels of liquor are feeding the blaze, which now and then seem* to pierce the cloud* in the 'ky. All the fire engines in the city are. throwing water on the property in the neighborhood. The distillery property consists of an immense distillery containing machinery, extending back from the streets almost two hundred and fifty feet. The lower part was of frame, while till front wa* of brick and three stories in height. East of the office and adjoining it were two large warehouses in which were stored 25,000 barrel* of j whisky. These buildings were entirely I of brick, three stories high. 250 feet I deep and about. IOO feet wide. It wa* 1 here that the lire started and was caused \ by the carelessness of a negro who smashed a lamp while endeavoring to get \ out a leaking barrel. The warehouses were next to the largest in Louisville. The distillery proper was 94 feet by 33 1-3 feet and to this had been built two addition*. All these buildings were destroyed, and the flames ar* still burning fiercely. A rough estimate made of the lo** places it at fully $800, OOO. It was almost. if not wholly, covered by insurance. As the distillery has not been in operation for some time nothing will be lost but delay in starting up. It was three o'clock before the fire was got un#-r control, and thi* wa* not until the immense warehouse, distillery proper, cattle shelds and slaughter houses and the pork [lacking establishment of Conrad Seiler, adjoining, were completely destroyed. The Pork Packing company'* loss will be $50,000. The total loss to the Kentucky Distilling company is estimated at $800,Otto. This i* irrespective of the los' to the government in unpaid taxes of ninety cent a gallon which will amount to >9*1.-635, making the total lo** by the tire not much les* than 82,000,000.

A VICTORY FOR THE SHIPPERS. A Modification of Hic I niforiii Bill of Lading Secured. < iii' ago, Aug. IL—Shipper* throughout tho United Slat*-' have gained a victory over the railroads in securing a modification of the uniform bill of lading. Th*- concession made by the carriers '-'insist* in striking out the words “not negotiable.” ngain*t which the chief complaint was made. At, a meeting "f a joint committee of th*-Trunk Fin* aud Central Traffic association and tin- repr* sedatives of the Lake and Bail lines which was held in thi* city today. the subject was wry fully discussed in the light of the objections raised by tile commercial organizations of the country. Some road* threatened to discontinue tin- use of tin-new bill of lading unless it were adopted by all lines, a* shipper* were now di'-criminating in favor of the Grand Trunk, Wabash and four lake I in*** that had refused to adopt it in it- present form. Chairman Blanchard, of the Central Traffic association, strongly recommended that the words "no? negotiable’’ be stricken out. Thi* recommendation was unanimously concurred in and the amended bill of lading adopted was by the lilies to take effect. September I. Representatives of th** Grand Trunk and Wabash accepted it in its new form, as also did all the lake line*. No action was taken in regard to the other objections that had been urged against the bill of lading, but the permanent committee on tho uniform bill of lading was instructed to make them up at th*-<*arli»-*t po>*ible day. This practically settle* til*- light over the uniform bill of lading. The amendment makes it a negotiable paper, and the bankers will no longer refuse to advance money on it. The Nauvoo Grape Crop.
