Kerry called up the free sugar bill.
Harris, while favoring free sugar,
thought this and other bills should be

Berry said the senate had been charged
with being the friend of the sugar trust.
He wanted the bill to pass exactly as it

Chairman Wilson has been commis

White, in making it, expressed regret
that be could not kill a thousand white

the idea that it is hi duty to kill a
mmt white men as possible. The direct
evidence of the negro detective, coupled
with circumstantial evidence, will un
doubtedly convict him of murder.
Washington, Aug. 16. The republi
can steering committee today decided to
support the motion to refer the four sup
plemental tariff bills to the finance com
mittee, and to seek to amend in various
ways, the principal amendment being
for a repeal of the tariff bill just passed.
They count upon the votes of Hill, Caf
fery, Blancbard, Allen and Kyle. If the
repeal amendment should fail, they
would seek to substitute a bounty pro
vision in the pending bill for free sugar,
and would expect to secure the votes of
these five senators, except Hill. They
will also offer other amendments in
. orinin inn ti ntrencies. including one for
a duty on wool. They admit the sugar
bill should pass, with an amendment
providing, either for bounty or for the
reneal of the main bill. The house
probably would refuse to accept it, and
most likely would fail in conference,
but they claim the senate, especially
the republican senators, would not ue
responsible for that result.
