I can but reaffirm today what became a matter of record in. 1888, during the debate on this question, Without sympathy with free trade theories, or any affiliation with the Democratic party, I have yet declined to encourage the evils of over production, or to cast my vote against a class of persons in whose prosperity I am deeply interested. I �ay now, as I did then, 1 favor protection to a proper degree, butl would admit free of duty nil articlea of use or necessity not pioduced or manufactured here, and upou such as are produced or manufactured here' only duty enough to prevent foreign pro ducts or manufactures from destroying home industry and reducing the Wages of labor. Then, as now, I refused to y concur in the bill which did not promote i ^ the revision and reduction demanded by thosetaxed heaviest as consumers and who derive the least benefit from protection. The time has arrived when the western farmer must be admitted in conference on the tariff schedule along with the eastern manufacturer "As to making a speech," said the ^ senator, "1 will probably have something to say later on. Though my position in the chair prevents me from participating in the general debate, it does not impair the quality of my vote." "And your final vote on the McKlnley bill, should it continue to ignore the west?" "That," said Mr. IngalU", gravely "were anticipating an injustice to the west that would but recoil upon the party which undertook to carry it out." senator plumb. Though not disposed to be interviewed on the tariff, Senator Plumb said substan- ftially ub follows: "The outcome of the tariff debate should not be anticipated, although the present indications suggest a result in line with the recommendations of the committee rather than those of the few dissenters. However, I shell con tinue to deal with each Beparate item as my judgment and my leaning toward western interests may dictate. In this matter 1 will continue to object, offer amendments and vote with perfect independence." "As to my Republicanism," continued the senator, "men may differ as to detail the Indian appropriation bill. The resolu tion was adopted-yeaB, 103; nays, 71. Mr. Enloe, rising to a question of privilege, said that pending the call of the house he was present in his. seat. He had then started out ot the bouse without his hat to attend to the business in the capitol. In passing out of the door the door-keeper told him that he could not pass out. He replied that he woula pasB out. The door-Keeper said he could not do so, that he had orders from the speaker to that effect. He [ Ur. Enloe] had said that he would pass and the door keeper thereupon caught him by the arm and attempted to arrest him He offered a resolution to bring the doorkeeper to tho bar of the bouse for contempt of the house and tor a breach of the privileges of a member. Mr. Enloe contended that the speaker bad no authority to issue an order to the subordinates ot the house to interfere with the personal rights and privileges which belonged to a member ot tnat body. The issuance of such an order was no more thau it would be it the speaker Bhould order the gentleman from Arkansas [Mr. Rogers] to be executed under the recent Kemmler process in New \ ork. A Republican-That would be a good thing. Mr. Enloe said the doorkeeper didn't do him any personal violence. If he had he would have dealt with the man who ioBued the order. [Derisive laughter on tbe Republican side ] The speaker In ruling upon the question said that the rights and privileges of all the members ot the house, in the discharge of their functions, were sacred and that the houBe-oould undertake no higher duty than the conservation of these rights and privileges In the act, The chair thought that this was a question which ought to be passed upon by the house. The rules ot the house made provision for the obtaining and retention of a quorum. In order to accomplish that tbe rules of the house required that whenever a call was ordered the doors should be dosed. Buch closing of the doors, in the opinion of the chair, prevented any member from leaving the chamber. But that was the opinion of the chair as an Individual member. The speaker had issued no order in regard to the matter, but in response to a question of the doorkeeper or one ot his assist ants as to the meaning of the rule, the speaker bad stated that to be his opinion and the doorkeeper had acted upon it, always subject ot course to the decision of the house. As this resolution raised a question which must be disposed of by tho house, the chair ruled it to be admis sable. The resolution was referred to the judiciary committee, Tlie house then proceeded under the special order to the c onstderatlon of the senate amendment to the Indian appro priation bill. Mr. Dockery of Missouri, commented upon the extraordinary rule which took the senate amendment out of tbe committee ot tbe whole and provided that the house Bhould vote In bulk upon 101 amendments. Mr. Perkins of Kansas, approved the resolution defending the speaker from attacks made upon him. He said tbat the presidios officer was impartial and court eous. He knew that he was able and he desired to say that no man occupying the chair by permission ot a Democratic house had over oooupieil that chair with more integrity, more manliness, mare fidelity to the public good than the man whom the Repub licans of this house had honored by their votes, for integrity, for manhood, for impartiality he was willing to put the speaker in comparison with thote whom Weather nnd Crop Beport. Washington, Aug, 9,-There is a reduction in the condition of cereals as reported by the statistician of the department of agriculture. The decline from the first of July to tho first of August is frem 98.1 to 88.8 in .corn; from Di.i to 88.2 in spring wheat; from 81 to 70.1 In oats; from 88.3 to 82.8 in barley. The condition of spring rye, 1b HO 8. The condition ot Irish potatoes is reduced from 91.7 to 70.4 A fall of twenty points indicates the disaster which has befall6n the corn crop within thirty days. The cause is abnormally high temperature of the central maize olstricts, with insufficiency of rain-tall; The reports of drouth which cover a brood area and the severity of the effects produced are more general and depressing than the signal service record of temperature appears to indidate. One factor in the blighting of vegetation is evidently tbe hot winds that have scorched the lower basin of the Missouri valley and the Ohio valley. The change from drouth to daily saturation by repeated and heavy showers has been too sudden and extreme in those regions where drouth has been relieved by seasons of moisture. The crop is late in the New England states and will require a lone warm sea sen to mature in the middle states. The high temperature has advanced growth in the northern districts and in the more southern there haB been some injury from drouth. The south Atlantic Btates report local droughts with subsequent rains and a comparatively good, though somewhat reduced condition ot corn, name counties in Mississippi have suffered materially from the absence of Beasonuble moisture. In Louisiana the crop is in a high condition, though Bomewbat late in the overflowed district. In TexaB the crop is now matured and Is good, except in the area which has But fered the most draught. Lata planted corn in Arkansas has been seriously injured by drought ot tbe last three weeks in July. In the western and southwestern part of Kentucky the crop has been severely | schorohed and the rains since the 28rd of July have materially relieved the fields of the central and eastern district. In Ohio there is a great difference between the northern and the southern partB of the Btate. The southern division- of the counties of Indiana and Illinois have likewise received greater damages then the northern. .'-1 The condition is slightly higher in Missouri, and In Kansas the severity of the drouth has culminated. Iowa and Nebraska are nearly in the status of the Ohio valley, while Minnesota shows the highest average of all the states. Wisconsin suiters slightly and Miohigan still more from drouth. There has been considerable reduction in the condition of spring wheat, amounting to 11 points. It is less in the Dakota^ than in other spring wheat districts. The average of condition is 80 in Wisconsin, 70 in Minnesota, 87 in Iowa, 71 In Nebraska, and 88 in the Da-kotaB. The latter is a decline of 7 points owing to the hot southern winas which afleotea the late sown more than the early. The oat crop is certain to be one of very low yield and probably ppor quality. Another crop of great importance, potatoes, has also been much damaged by drouth. A low rate of yield is assured. STILL SPREADING. No Abatement of the Great Now York Central Strike.

Trouble Amoojr the Chlckasaws. Wabhinoton, Aug. 9.-The secretary ot the interior has received a telegram from Mr. Bennett, Indian agent at Muscogee, Indian Territory, saying that the Chickasaw situation is serious and that there is great danger of an outbreak on the 13th iiiBt (the day of the election) on account of the disfranchisement t>( equaw men. In a communication to the president tbe secretary today expressed tbe opinion that there is no great probabll Ity of an outbreak to such an extent as lo require the Interference of troopB, yet as a precautlsn he recommends that the secretary of war be directed to have such troops sb are at Fort Gibson in complete readiness to respond to any order that may be necessary to suppress not at the election. In reply to Agent Bennett's telegram the secretary directs that no request for the assistance of troops be made unless riots of a dangerous character actually break oat. "The government," he says, "does cot intend to display a force of troops until the last emergency." The Resolution to Limit Debate Wabhinoton, Aug. 9.-The resolution Introduced iu the senate to-day to limit debate in that body is tbe one adopted by the Repubhoan caucus, but it was presented upon Mr. Hoar's own motion. Bo tar as can be learned there has been no action taken by any member cf Republican senators to support tbe resolution at this or any other time. It has gone with mauy others of like nature to the committee on rules, which has until now proved a veritable tomb for all such propositions. Senator Aldrich,chairman of the committee. Bays he does not know when a roeetlog will be called to consider the subject of changing the rules. Off for the Knoawpuieat. Washington, Aug. 9.-The president and party, consisting of Secretaries Noble and Rusk and Private Secretary Halford, left Washington this morning at 9:10 via tbe Pennsylvania railroad on their way to attend the encampment of tbe Grand Army of the Republic at Boston next week. To Limit the Debate. Wasuinutoh, Aug. �.-Senator Hoar this morning introduced a resolution to limit debate which was laid over- until Monday for consideration. Nkiv Yokk, Aug. 9.-The trainmen on the VanderbiltlineB struck last night at 7:30 o'clock, and deserted their trains at that hour, no matter where they were. The walk out was due to the discharge of several Knights of Labor and Brotherhood men qy the company. Tho whole system Is tiod up, no trains except mail trains running. The first train which left the Grand Central depot this morning, passed underneath the big wooden bridge at Forty-fifth street exactly at 3:60 o'clock. Four cars were attached to this train and these were occupied by the mail sorters, whose duty it was to distribute the malls before the train reached Albany. There were no passengers aboard. The tie-up on the road was complete. About 6 o'clock, however, a great num ber of the train handBwhodid not belong to the KnightB ot Labor reported at the yards for work. They were instructed to set Bbout clearing the tracks. Third Vice-President Webb took charge of the men as soon as they entered the yards. He had been up all night superintending the company's affaire and consulting with police officials. All the West Share trains went out last night and the 8:80 train this morning was particularly crowded. At 11 o'clock last night the St. Louis train came tn at the West Shore depot, The baggage was handled by the train-men, and no excitement wbb observable. Five freight trains left between 8 o'clock lost night and 1 o'clock this morning. The strikers all conducted themselves in an orderly manner. They say they are determined not to work until the discharged men are reinstated. Tbe executive board of district assembly 246 was in session all night. Inspector Byrnes remained at his post all night. To-day he h�s detectives along the btidge and in tbe tunnel. The reserves are on duty. The inspector says he will preserve order at any cost. A few minutes after 8 o'clock last night a cipher message containing only the words "Webster's dictionary" flashed over the telegraph wireB along the Hudson river to nearly every station on the New York Centra', where it was received by an officer of the local assembly of Knights of Labor in that town. This was the notice to quit work and was obeyed immediately. The walking delegate carried a Bmall Webster's dictionary in his hand as he went among the employes. It whB his notice to them to walk out. Master Workman E J. Lee this afternoon said that if the Central shipped live stock and other perishable goods over the West Bhore road in any considerable quantity, he would iBsue an order that would cut that road In two. Tbe situa tion of tbe New York Central strike here is, if anything, more firm than last night, The only men who are at work are the engineers and a few firemen. Superintendent BiBsell said this morning that be hoped to have passenger trains running as usual by to morrow, and that the company proposed to stand firm and not have its business management dictated to by a crowd of labor agitators. The only train arriving from tbe south this mornm*; was a newspaper express from New York, which was an hour late. The weBtern trains that came in before noon were made up mostly of mail and baggage cars and are still here. On the first western train was attached a passenger coach, having on board Gen. Alger and party from Michigan, who are on their way to attend the reunion at Bos ton. Only one train started for the south made up ot mall cars and two passenger coaches. The BtrikerB do not object to mail trains running through, and showed de cided opposition to the road officials attaching passenger coaches thereto Consequently, when this tram was about to be switched over tbe bridge across the river they refused to let the switch be propvrly set and police had to be called on to disperse them. The train then moved out, but the strikers said it would nut get far. It is said that the West Bhore employes will go out before to-morrow. Over 1,000 men employed in the car shops went out thiB morning. When Bpoken to about the rumor that the locomotive engineers would join the Knights of Labor in the strike, Mr. Webb said It this occurred it would complicate matters very greatly. Secretary Hayes of the KnUhts of Labor arrived in the city at 1 o'clock this afternoon. He at once sought out Mr. Holland and Mr. Valentine and the three bad a pro-1' ng�d conference. The Brotherhood of Engineers and the member, ot the local assembly of the Knights of Labor have arranged for a conference and everything looks &s if the engineers would go out to-night. This will virtually atop all traffic. Train No. 20 on the New York Central road, due at 4 o'clock, came into Wee-hawken on the West Shore road about 4:80. ThiB was the only Central train that came over tbe West Shore rood today, and upon the news ot its arrival the strikers declared that the West Shore, too, would be tied up. Not a single freight train left the yards to day and none arrived. Tbe force of men In the yards is not competent to handle the usual freight traffic of the road but yesterday they had very little to do. Mr. Webb will make a streneous effort to run the freight trains on Monday both on the WeBt Shore and New York Cen tral. "We will bold a meeting here to morrow, Sunday," Mr. Webb said to-day, "and decide what we shall do in regard to tbe freight trains. I think we will have enough men by Monday to get every. fight hard. Ho could not tell, he said, whether the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers would call out their memberB or not. There were many statements made yesterday regarding tbe number ot men on strike. The men themselvessaid there were three or four thousand, wLlle therallroad officials maintained that there were but three or four hundred out. About 6 o'clock to-night fifty-four of the night force of the switchmen of the West Bhore depot at Weehawken reported for duty. On the bulletin board at tbe station master's office In the depot were written several cabalistic signs which the men studied with interest and then quietly went to work. A 7:40 a locomotive whistle rang out shrilly in tbe yard and fifty of the fifty-four switchmen left their posts, put on their coa s and walked to their homes. This action left the yard almost deserted. Preparations to meet the emergency were Immediately made by Chiet Dispatcher Williams and men were��nt out in readiness for dispatching the 8:30 Buffalo express. This is the most important train or the night, and its delay would have moBt seriously crippled the road. As none of the passenger car brakemen had abandoned their posts this train was put oft at 9 o'clock. Freight Conductor Kane, who actod sb spokesman for the striking switchmen, told Yard Master Degroot that personally the men had no grievances. They bad been ordered out by tbe Knights of Labor and obeyed. Chief Dispatcher Williams told the men that they had better remain at their ponts. It they did not, they could consider themselves out of the service of the road. This threat had uo effect on the men. Four freight and passenger truine were to have left Weehawken before midnight and the officials made every effort to get them out on time. FOREIGN AFFAIRS.

They were met at tbe station in Jersey City by Lieut. Hughes of the Baltimore, who had been detailed by Admiral Gherardi to re-cieve tbem. He escorted them to the government tug Catalpa.

Hughes got in a passion calling direction to everyone. They were courteously received by ths president and subsequently went ashore unharmed. The tug then took the party to the Baltimore. The president's Hag was unfurled and a salute of twenty-one gunB fired. The cruiser then Bteanied off for Boston. Secrets of the Dynauio Room. RooiiKSTEit, N. Y., Aug. 9.-In an interview with a Pout KxprcHS reporter this afternoon, Superintendent Barnes revealed some secrets of the dynamo room in the Auburn prison. "When Kemmler was killed," he said, "the belt used was a sew one and bad not stretched Tbe lacing of the belt caused the dynamo to revolve irregularly and when the curreut was turned on to kill the resistance ot Kemmler and the chair was such that it caused the belt to slip and it came near running off tbe pulley. It was three-quarters oS the puliey and only that a man held a board against it the belt would have come orT and there would have been an awful scene. There should have been a resistance board to run the curreut through until it was to run to Kemmler. However, It la Hal Esipected.

Bekmn, Aug. 9.-[Copyrighted by the New York Associated Press.]-To-night's Post gives suggestive prominence tn a special dispatch, Baying that just as Boon as the emperor's visit to Osborne in 1888 afforded the starting point leading to the Anglo-German agreement, the present visit of tbe kaiser may have an outcome that will astonish the world. The Post's allusion, as read here under the light of the reports circulating in the olllcial world,point to a project of the kaiser'a to obtain the czir's assent to anotber Berlin conference, aiming at a general European peace compact, implying a limitationof armament, liord Salisbury's declaration at the mansion house that Europe was never more pacific and that tho nations were growing more inclined to compromise indicated the strain of hiB communications with the powers. The kaiser going to Russia as the apostle of peace now desires the kals-erina to accompany him. The belief in official circles here is that tbe czar will treat the league of peace as A futility, unless associated with the restoration ot Russia's dominance in the Balkans and permanent ratifying of France. Whatever the kaiser's peace ideaB may be, bis movements tend to strengthen Germans in the event of war. His visit to Norway was immediately successful in inducing the government to consent to tbe recruitment of Norwegians and Swedes for the German navy, an ample supply of fine seamen being thus aitorded.

The German national hymn will be intoned by the naval band; tbe cession of the island will be proclaimed and an address from tbe leading inhabitants will be read; boquets will be presented to Emperor William by Heligoland maidens attired In the picturesque Island costume. The festivities attending the medical congress have constituted the heaviest work that most of the delegates have had. There has been a constant succession of banquets, balls and receptions. At tbe opening banquet, at which Prince Theodore of Bavaria and Ministers Dossier end Boettecher were present, Dr. Legden proposed the health of Minister Phelps, who in his response pointed to the presence ot 628 Americans as a most eloquent testimony to tbe interest taken in the congress by tbe medical profession in America. To-night Mr. Phelps marked the close of the bongress with a dinner given to Surgeon General Hamilton and other army and navy officials. Dlsoonteuded Kugllak Xjftbor. London, Aug.
