Kmm our regular correspondent.
Washington, July 27, 1894.
Republicans have been astonished at
the extent of the demoralization in the
democratic ranks, as exposed by public
confessions of leading democrats during
the past week. The democratic senators
have held two caucuses, but have
reached no more definite conclusion than
to order a renewal of the conference on
the tariff bill, and as three democratic
senators Hill, Murphy and Irby re
fused to attend either of these caucuses
the outlook tor the endorsement of the
conference agreement, even supposing
that one can be reached, ia far from
bright. Should those three democratic
votes be cast against the agreement
tariff legislation at thia session would be
deader tan a last year's bird's nest. It
is not believed that any agreement can
get through the house that does not
modify the sugar schedule, not to men
tion coal and iron ore, and the Louisiana
senator have given notice that they will
vote against any agreement that makes
the sugar schedule less favorable to. the
sugar planters of their state than it was
when the bill passed the senate.
Mr. Cleveland's attempt to boss the
tariff-smashing job, has made a terrible
mess of it, and Don Dickinson, the man
who is credited with having persuaded
him into it, is getting almost as much
abuse from democratic senators as is
being given to Mr. Cleveland himself.
There are said to be a considerable
number of democrats in the house who
are in favor of accepting the senate
amendments, but if that be true they
are keeping very quiet about it. The
republicans are very well satisfied with
the situation as it stands. It is entirely
a democratic fight, and will continue to
be such until the conference reports
some sort of an agreement ; then the re
bublicam of both house and senate,
particularly the latter, may have an
opportunity to put in some licks that
may decide the fight, and tbe opportun
ity will not be lost, if it occurs.
There is more than the misnamed
"raw-materials" at stake in the fight
between the free tradedemocrats, headed
by Mr. Cleveland, and the protect-my-own-interests
democrats, headed by Sen
ator Gorman. Free "raw materials" is
the rallying cry that Mr. Cleveland has
adopted to force his nomination for the
presidency for the fourth time by the
democratic party. This fact is fully
known by Senator (iorman and tbe dem
ocratic senators who are associated with
him, and makes them all the more de
termined that Mr. Cleveland shall not
have his way. Senator Hill is also fully
cognizant of Mr. Cleveland's little game
and bis pretended support of the presi
dent is merely to keep the fight up by
stirring up the (iormanites, whom he
has had no love for since their desertion
of him at a critical period during the
Chicago convention, in order that he
may get Cleveland downed and out of
the w ay as a candidate. It is well known
that Senator Hill will not vote for the
bill, no matter whether Cleveland or
Gorman wins, as long as the income tax
ia retained therein, and neither side Is
likely to strike it out.
Senator Cafi'ery of Louisiana this week
did what the senate investigating com
mittee has so far failed to do proved
that the sugar trust dictated the sugar
schedule of the senate tariff bill. Mr.
Caffery said the schedule was not satis
factory to the Louisiana senators, but
that Senator Gorman compelled them to
choose between it and tree sugar a pro
vided for in the original Wilson bill.
A photograph of an order for the pur
chase of sugar stock, signed by Senator
Camden of West Virginia, I in the pos
session of the senate investigating com
mittee. Mr. Camden claims that his
signature is a forgery gotten up for
blackmailing purposes, but it seems a
little odd that a comparatively poor
man should have been selected by the
alleged blackmailers when there are so
many rich men in tbe senate. It ia
said that if the committee succeeds in
getting the corroboration testimony, it
has a reason to expect that impeach
ment proceedings against Senator Cam
dem, and at least one other democratic
senator, will almost certainly be com"
menced, if there are not some resigna
tions. Cas.
