man argued that 40 cents per ton was
purely a revenue duty. Wee coal, he
said, would give to a single foreign
corporation all the coal trade from
Boston north. Free coal would not
benuflt any man or woman In the
country. Who demands It? There was
but one great concern on earth that
wanted free coal. In Nova Scotia
there was a deposit of coat as broad
and as high as any on the face of the
earth. The government of Canada had
controllei that. Five years ago the
dominion government was Induced to
change Its policy. Small leases were
wlDed out. The Canadian Pacific, that
great artery of Great Britain, together
with mn from tne unitea Mates, as
aoclated themselves together snd se
cured a fcU-yeur leare of this coal land
on condition that they would pay Into
the Canadian treasury 12 cents per ton
royalty. If coal were free, the coal of
Nova Kcotla would displace that of
the Untied States In New England
and the- treasury of Canada would be
enriched by the money that ought to

In ths Roman senate, Gorman, he
"emtefn".! a ths lean and hungry
Casslus; Mr. Jones, Maivus Brutus,
the hoitMt Brutus of' the senate. Mr.
Veei, who struck the first blow on
Friday, as Caesar; Mr, Voorheee as
Treljoiiius, "lively, but earr.es," and
Mr, Harris as MeMlus Clmbjr. They
had si ruck down the prnstdent, Mr,
Hill said, not they loved Mr. Cleveland
less, but they loved the senate com
promise Trunu, "And yM," he oon
eluded, and every word rang o t like a
hammer on an anvil, "I can ay with
Anthony, they are all honorable men,"
Mr. Caffery, who followed Mr. Hill
with a brief speech, also gave the
country bis share of the aeera of tht
pottUoal prison houm. JU detallod the
msnner In whloh the sugar schedule
had been prepared. Insisting It was
made by and In the Interest of the
Caffery moved that the conferees be
Instructed to make the following
amendment: "That the bounty pro
vided In said act shsll stand until re
pealed to the extent that there shall
be paid to the producer from beets,
sorghum or sugar cane grown In the
Culled States In the year of 1K4, or
from maple tap produced In the Wilted
States during the year 1H1)4 under li
cense for 152 and subject to the limita
tions now Imposed by law on all
eugars testing not less than 90 degrees
by the polarlscope, nine-tenths ot one
cent per pound, and upon all such
sugars testing less thsn M per cent.
and not less than 80 degrees, eight-
tenths of one cent per pound."
Caffery then commended Senator
Hill for his defense of the president
and declared there was nothing In his
letter which need arouse the ire of
Caffery declared the president was
exenerated from the charges msde
against htm by Gorman. The very
evidence adduced by Gorman, he said,
Justified the president In writing the
letter he had written, Since the se
crets of the past were to be divulged,
the time had come for him to tell his
story. He was at the little conference
at which were present, among others,
MeiNrs. Brlce and Gorman. It was de
cided at that conference that 40 per
cent, on raw and BO per cent on re
fined sugar was proper. "I took that
schedule to the finance committee and
gave It to Senator Jones," he contin
ued. "Mr. Jones, after calculating,
pointed out that In ths differential al
lowed the refiner was conceded a dif
ferential greater than the McKlnley
law. I thereupon withdrew It. After
further consultation I presented an
other schedule placing one cent on raw
and one and one-eighth on refined, So
It remained for some time, when I was
admonished by Mr, Gorman and Mr,
Hrlce that this second schedule meant
free sugar. Mr. Jones told ma the
sugar refining Interests would favor
free sugar if that was Insisted upon.
He wanted me to accept 40 per cent.
on raw and refined and one-eighth dlf-
fvrenttut on refined. That schedule
was not acceptable to me or to the
sugar growers, and I want the coun
try to know that It was dictated by
the refining Interests. At Inst we ac
cepted It with the understanding that
the bounty provision for 1894 should
stand. I call on Senators Vest and
Jones to sny whether I have said the
truth," Neither of the sonators re
plied, He then gave way In order to give
the democrats a chance to caucus.
Altogether It was a very exciting day
and the Indications are that others as
Interesting will follow.
