are now talking of having the bill reported on

SENATORS TO Mlir HEART).
No vote was taken to-day on the question of al-
lowing Senators to appear in behalf of the inter-
eats of their States, but there seems to bh a tacit
agreement among the democrats that the doors
shall be open to Senators during the rest of the
The first Senator to take advantage of the privi.
lege of appearing was Mr Hale, of Maine, who
protested against the committee allowing lumber
to remain on the free list. He talked about the
necessity of protecting the lumber interests of
Maine and the Northwest against the competition
Senator Shoup. of Idaho, appeared in behalf of
the lead ore interests. He nrged the committee
not to be influenced by the arguments mqde for
putting lead ore on the free list, and he advocated
an increase of the duty from three-fourths of a cent
to one and a half cents a pound on the lead con-
tained in the ores.
Senator Shoup also wanted the committee to
amend the lead ore paragraph so prescribiun- the
method in which samples of imported lead sball be
elected for the test assay as to insure the payment
*f duty upon all the lead.
WIL NOT HEAR REPRESVNTATIVES.
While the doors of the committee are to open
freely to Senators, they are to be closed to mem-
bers of the House of Representatives. This was
deeldedfsytrict party vote when one of the re-
publican members of the committee submitted a
request fom Reprepentative Quigg, of New York,
to be allowed to appear and submit an argument.
Mr Quigg evidently desires an opportunity to
fuil his pledges to his constituents to smash the
Wilson bill," hut the committee has decided that
he must do his "smashinmr at lneg range. RHe
was given Fpermission to commit his remarks to
writing and file them with the clerk of the commit-
The committee agreed this morning to increase
the duty on encaustic tiles from twenly-flve per
cent ad valorem to forty per cent ad valorem.
This is an Industry in which the constitutents of
Senators McPherson and Smith, of New Jersey,
and Senator Brice. of Ohio, are interested, and the
influence of these three gentlemen resulted in hav-
ing the change made.
c GOWULTING WAYS AND ,MEANS MEMBERS.
Itin said that prominent members of the House
Committee of Ways and Means have been taken
into the confidence of the majority of the Commit'
tee' on Finance, and all the amendments of the
Senate have been discussed freely with them, so as
to insure in advance favorable action by the House
conferrees when the bill gets into conference. It is
said the Senate Committee has received satisfactory
assuanances from the House Committee.
The probable length of the tariff debate is a mat-
ter upon which democratic Senators cannot agree
among themselves. If the democrats of the Fi-
nance Committee could control their own side of
the chamber much of the doubt now surrounding
this question would be eliminated, but there is
every indication that the democratic Senators will
not be controlled.
Mr Voorhees favors the briefest kind of debate.
He will make a terse statement when he calls the
bill up, and let the matter end there. Other mem-
bers of the committee will also speak, but so many
other democrats are opposed to certain schedules
that they will feel bound to protest and put them-
selves right with their constitute. t9.
Democratic members of the Finance Committee
expect to see the Bill signed by June 1, but repub.
licans say the long days of August will be upon us
before Mr Cleveland will be permitted to approve
the act that supersedes the McKinley law.
OIOAn xANUPAOTURERS PROTEST.
Representatives of about three fourths of the
cigar manufacturers of this country met here to-
day to frame a protest against the proposed in.
crease of internal revenue tax from $3 to $J) a
thousand on cigars. These delecates represent
about 200,000workingmen, who, they assert, will
suffer greatly, together with the consumers and
themselves, if this increase is levied.
The cigar industry suffered an enormous de-
crease last year. which the makers attribute partly
to excessive taxation. A committee of the dele-
gates will wait on the Senate Finance Committee
to protest against this measure, which they say
will increase the prices of the cheaper grades of
cigars about fifty per cent, and affect the higher
grades very little.
NO HURRY WITH THE TARIFF BILL.
WASHINGTON, March 14, 18P4.
The Senate Committee on Finance is continuing
its work on the Tariff Bill in an aimless, haphaz-
ard sort of way.
Its meetings seem to be conducted without any
apparent plan or purpose. Members get together
and discus the bill at random for an hour or two
every srdrning and then adjourn. All of their
time has been devoted to discussion of the bill, for
they have been very much annoyed at the news-
paper reportzpf what they have been doing, and
they adopted i-resolution this morning pledging
each member of the committee to secrecy.
There is no indication that the democratic
majority of the committee is disposed to use its
power and stop the talk in committee by reporting
the bill to the Senate. This is the course every
business man in the country has been wishing they
would take, but the republicans were playing a
game of obstruction and the democrats are govern-
ed by Senatori,'i courtesy" to such an extent as to
allow the bill to be blocked rather than come out
squarely and force the fighting.
MAY REVIVE UGLY RUMORS.
The secret proceedings in the committee room
and the holding back of the bill from the Senate
without any apparent reason may result in a revi-
val of the rumors of Senators being engaged in
stock speculations. A revival of these rumours is
more likely for the reason that some of the repre-
setatives of the Sugar Trust are still frequent vi-i-
tors to Washington, and there is talk to-day of
sill further changes in the schedule affecting
The question of whether the bill in its present
shape will continue the reciprocity treaties, so as
to let in sugar from Cuba and other countries free
of duty, has been very generally discussed to-day.
and while the weight of opinion seems to be against
thbt construction of the measure, it is probable
that the committee will adopt an amendment that
will leave no room for any doubt.
It was the understanding in the House, and was
so stated by tombgrstof the Qommittee& on Ways
and Means when the bill was under consideration,
that the section providing for the repeal of the
McKinley law carried with it the abrogation of the
the treaties made under that act. As the House
bill put all sugars on the free list unconditionally
it made no particular difference, as far as sugar
was concerned, whether the treaties were abrogated
or not, but when the question was raised during
the debate it was declared that the repeal of the
law abrogated the treaties.
WILL LEAVE NO DOUBr.
The fact that a special section providing for the
abrogation of the Hawaiian treaty of June 3, 1875,
was put into the bill hai led to some confusion and
has been construed to mean that it is the intention
of the Senate Committee to discriminate against
the Hawaiian Islands by imposing a duty upon
Hawaiian sugars, while Mugar from the other re-
ciprocity countries is to be admitted free.
The Hawaiian treaty stands on entirely different
ground from those with the other countries in
question. It was entered into before the enactment
of the McKinley law, and the repeal of that law in
no way affects its existence.
The KcKinley law is the foundation upon which
the other treaties are constructed, and its repeal,
if it `does not carry with it the abrogation of the
treatise as a matter of course, will make it possi-
ble for the President to abrogate them at orce, on
the ground that the conditions under which they
were dawn have been entirely changed.
It is understood, however, that, in order that
there may be no doubt whatever on the subject,
the committee will adopt an amendment expressly
abiogating the treaties.
SENATORS ASKING HIGHER DUTIES.
WASHINGmTO, March :16, 1894.-The Senate
Committee on Finance devoted most of the day to
the administrative features of the Tariff bill,
which they went over in company with Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury Hamlin.
The Treasury authorities are not sure that all of
the provisions ot the administrative part of the
bill as agreed upon by the Democratic members of
the Finance Committee will wora well in practice,
and several suggestions have been made by the
Board of General Appraisers which will probably
lead to changes being made in the bill.
While for the last two or three days the admin-
istrative part of the bill has received a great deal
of attention, the Democratic members of the com-
miitee have found some time to give to their Sena-
torial colleagues who have appealed to them in
the interest of higher duties.
One of the most active advocates of increased
duties is Senator M'Pherson, of New Jersey, who,
being a member of the committee, is in a good
plee to look after the industries of his State. Be-
fore the bill was made public last week he and his
colleague, Senator Smith, had succeeded in getting
a great many changes in schedules affecting the
interests of New Jersey, and it is now understood
that Senator M'Pherson is succeeding in having
still more changes made.
REEP THEIR SECRET.
The members of the committee observe the obli-
gation of secrecy that was put upon them more
than such obligations are usually observed by
Congressional committees, but it is said that the
New Jersey Senators have succeeded in getting
some further increases in the earthenware and
glass schedules. They had previously succeeded
in having several increases made in these schedules
over the rate fixed by the bill, as it passed the
House, and if they got many more increases they
would have the protection on these articles oi New
Jersey manufacture almost up to the McKinley
Members of the committee are especially careful
not to discus the sugar duties, but if all the
rumors about the Capitol are well founded the
entire sugar schedule has been practically reopen-
ed. The sugar refiners and importers are making
a last effort to have the committee make a differ-
ence in the duties on sugar above and below No.
16 Dutch standard. From the first they have
been extremely anxious to have this system of
determining the duty on sugar adopted, instead of
the polariscope tests.
PLANTEES OPPOSE IT.
The planters, on the other hand, are opposed to
it, as they say it would allow the importers to
bring in at low rates of duty very high grades of
sugar, as the Dutch standard takes account of
color only and not of the amount of saccharine
matter contained. The planters contend that
sugar may be very nearly ready to put on the
market as refined sugar and may still be below No.
16 Dutch standard, so that it requires very little
additional treatment by the refiners in this country
to make the finest grades of white refined sugar.
The planters, on their part, are still urging
higher rates of duty on raw sugars, but they are
also contending for the insertion in the bill of a
clause that will make the (abrogation of the recip-
rocity treaties absolutely certain.
IN THE HOUSE.
The Houe tc-lay voted not to direct a special
investigation ofwthe O0ast and Geodetic Survey, as
provided for in an amendment to the Sundry Civil
Appropriations bill, proposed yesterday by Mr.
Enloe (Dem., Tenn.)
CRIMINAL DELAY OF THE TARIFF BILL.
The Tariff Bill still drags along in the Senate
Finance Committee without any indication of
any definite time when it will be reported to
the Senate. Of course the republican members
of the Committee have no desire to expedite
the measure, but the democrats, who are in the
majority and can order it reported any time have
the best of reasons for cutting short a delay
which has already become intolerable.
In view of the widespread injury which it is
working to business this delay is little less than
criminal. It is now six weeks since the Tariff
bill was sent to the Senate. By this time it
should have been progressed well along toward
enactment. Yet it is still in the hands of the
Finance Committee, and there is no assurance
that general debate on it will begin before next
That is simply trifling with the business in-
terests and prosperity of the country. We are
very much mistaken if a day of reckoning is
not in store for every one responsible for it.-

MR. LUCKENBACH IN LUCK.
Frederick Luckenbach of 222 Dean street is ow-
ner and captain of the ocean tug Triton. He
seems to have struck a rare streak of good luck
lately. A few weeks ago he picked up two dere-
lict scows sixteen miles off the Sandy Hook light-
ship, which bad been abandoned by their crews,
andl the boat that had them in tow. They were
towed into port and the owners gladly paid Mr
Luckenhach $1,000 salvage. Then he heard of a
derelict bark down in the Gulf of Mexico. About
three weeks ago he started in search of and found
the vessel, towing her into port. He arrived at
Key West, Fla, having in tow the steamer Roms-
dal, which was crippled by the loss of her rudder
and propeller. The steamer will be towed here
for repairs and may arrive by the end of the week.
The owner and crew of the Triton will realize sev-
eral thousands of dollars in salvage for the two

WILLIAM H. LEE,
of New York.
On Tuesday evening last a lecture was
given in the Methodist Church, St. George's,
by Ralph Wells, Esq., of New York. The sub-
ject was "from Norway to Damascus." The
lecturer opened his subject by describing New
York as a city and the brilliant future that
was in store for it. From thence he took his
audience to London, Edinburgh, Italy, Swit-
zerland, Norway, and Damascus, the incident
of travel, manners, customs, religion and scen-
ery of the above countries were described in a
most vivid and realistic style. Mr. Wells'
abundant gift of humor was displayed to its
full extent, and his occasional touches of pathos
rendered it one of the most interesting, amus-
ing and instructive lectures that had been given
in St. Georges for a length of time.

THE DEFENCE OF BERMUDA.
The manning of the fortress of Bermuda ac-
companied by the manoeuvring of the troopsin
the command took place on Monday and Tues-
day last the 19th and 20th inst., under instruc-
tions issued by His Excellency the General
Commanding. The fortress was declared to be
in a state of siege at 6 a.m., on Monday and
soon after that hour there was a general move-
ment of troops and guns to the various parts of
the Islands, and in an incredibly short space of
time everything was in readiness for an attack.
The troops bivouacked at their various posts on
Monday night and early the following morning
were concentrated for a sham fight in the vicin-
ity of Devil's Hole and Tucker's Town, the
opposing forces being the troops from Prospect
under the command of Lt.-Col. Dickson 1st
Royal Berks Regt., and those from St. George's
commanded by Major Preston, R.E. The op-
erations were concluded about noon and the
troops returned to their various camps and bar-
racks; there were no casualties of any kind dur-
ing the entire movements.
An Inquisition was held at A gar's Island on the
24th instant before the Coroner for the Western
District on view of the body of Henry Squires, a
Private, 1set Royal Berkshire Regt.
On Good Friday afternoon the deceased with
four other soldiers were bathing in Agar's Island
Passage, one of the number only was a good swim-
mer whose name is Stephen Brewer. He had
swam from the shore about two hundred yards
and on returning passed Squires (the deceased)
who was swimming towards the shore and about
twenty yards from it. As soon as Brewer touched
bottom with his feet, where he was hoping to rest,
he heard a shout from Squires. He quickly re-
turned and seized him by the arm, and was taken
under the water by the drowning man. On their
both rising, Brewer, finding himself free, seized
Squires by the hair of his head, struggled with him
for about a minute, when both men went down a
second time. The current was running strong.
Sqires became perfectly exhausted And yielded.
Private Brewer reluctantly let go his hold and
made for the shore to save himself. Mr. Young,
foreman of the Magazine, who happened to be in
his boat, was appealed to for aid and in six minu-

NEW YORK, March 24.-S. S. Trinidad arrived
off Highlands at noon to-day.
ST. JOHN, NFLD., March 26-Another serious
marine disaster threatened this island Saturday
night. A large number of men and boys who
had been seal hunting on the ice near the shore
Saturday were carried out to sea by drifting ice.
Two of the boys were frozen to death, and the en-
tire party budly frost bitten. Towards evening
the wind which had changed to south west began
to lessen the ice and drive it off the land. There
were two or three hundred men scattered about
the drifting ice and all realizing their peril has-
tened toward the shore which a large number
succeeded in reaching in safety. At nightfall.
however, it was found that many of the hunters
were still adrift, and the fires were out. Beacon
fires were lighted to guide them to a place of
safety, but wheu the endangered men reached the
edge of the Park the ice was so far away from the
shore that their efforts to reach land waa unsuc-
cessful Messengers were despatched to this
place after midnight for the purpose of obtaining
- steamers with which to try to rescue the unfortu-
iate hunters, still on the ice, who it is stated
numbered 25 to 30. Daring the night, however.
a greater prrt of them succeeded in reaching land
mostly by swimming when the currents carried
the ice near the shore. Nine men and boys were
still unaccounted for yesterday morning, and
two steamers were engaged all day Sunday
searching for them. These steamers, nunfortunate-
ly, took a wrong direction at the start and the
party was not sighted until this morning. A boat
was sent to their assistance which managed to
reach them after much trouble as they were separ.
ated by many miles of ice and water. Seven men
were rescued alive. Two boys named Parsons
were dead, however, when found. Those rescued
had no foad nor stimulants and suffered intensely
from the cold. They had no protection whatever
and could not have survived but a little while
BERLIN, March 26-The old diplomatic plan of
a three emperor alliance is again the subject of
general discussion. Whether it be realized or not
everything points to a renewal of friendly under-
standing between Germany., Russia and Austria
Hungary. The fact that Count Kalnoky, Austrio
Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs will accom-
pany Emperor Franz Joseph to Abbazia this week
is interpreted to mean that high politics are to be
discussed by the Austrian and German sovereigns.
TURIN, March 26.-Arrivals of Hungarians
to pay respects to the memory of Louis Kossuth
increase daily. The funeral ceremonies will
be held in the Protestant Church after which
the body will be taken to Hungary by special
train. The train will reach Pesth Friday
BUDA PESTH, March 26.-It has been finally
decided that Louis Kossuth's library shall be
placed in the national museum in this city.
Permission for the transportation of the body
to Austrian soil has been granted.
New Orleans, March 26.-Late advices from
Bluefield say the Englishwarship Cleopatra has
been relieved by the Canada and the marines from
the Cleopatra have resigned the position as city
police to the marines of the newly arrived English
cruiser Lacayo is still in command of the reserva-
tion and the establishment of the government is at
an absolute standstill. When the Cleopatra ar-
rived, Capt Hope, her commander, claimed he was
looking after the interests of the natives of the re-
servation, which, under the Managua treaty of
1890, was his duty. It is now rumoured and gen-
erally believed by the Americans that Howe made
a deal with Lacayo in which Lacayo was left in ab-
solute possession of the reservation, and the Eng-
lish in return were given Corn Island, situated
about 30 miles from Bluefield and 60 miles from
the mouth of the San Juan River and mouth of
the Nicaragua Canel. Whether the rumour is cor-
rect is not positively known, but the Cleopatra has
been removed from Bluefields. The British Con-
sul states she sailed for Corn Island. On the ar-
rival of the Canada, marines were sent ashore, but
last Tuesday these troops were removed. These
facts increased the American belief that the ru-
mour was true and they prevailed upon the Amer-
ican Consul at Bluefields to come to the U S and
lay the matter before the authorities at Washing-
ton. The consul sent, arrived here yesterday with
that mission in view.
