HOUSE BACKS DOWN
An Unconditional Surrender
on the Tariff Bill.
ACCEPTED THE SENATE'S TERMS
Democrats Will Endearorto l'ass Kvery
Thine Today Th Chinese Treaty ;,
Con rml by the Senate.
Washington.' Aug. 13.; One hour be
fore the time set for the caucus, Speaker
Crisp was joined in bis private office by
Chairman Wilson and Representatives
Turner, McMillan and Montgomery, the
full membership of the house democratic
conference i-onimittee, and representa
tive Breckenridge, of Arkansas, advisory
member for final consultation. The
current of feeling among the members of
the house seemed to be setting strongly
in favor of accepting the senate bill
without further delay. At 10 o'clock
Crisp and the conferees filed out of the
speaker's office and took seats in a body.
At that time 153 democrats were on the
floor. Chairman Wilson took the floor
immediately after roll call. The mem
bers crowded around him listening in
tently to every word. Wilson began
with a recital of the difficulties encount
ered, which, he said, at each step had
been pursued with an ardent desire to
support with honor the desires of the
house to resist what was regarded as the
unreasonable demands of the senate.
He reviewed the differences in confer
ence on the disputed items. He .took
up each proposition On sugar and spoke
of the vast profits to the sugar trust
which would result from many of them.
He did not indulge in the sharp criticism
that was expected on' the motives of the
While Wilson was speaking, word was
passed around that the conference in the
speaker's room had resulted in decisive
action, and that Speaker Crisp himself
would move the house recede and accept
the senate bill.
Wilson spoke of the fight made by the
houBe conferees for a epecific duty on
sugar on the ground that under the ad
valorem system it would be impossible
to teli, on account of the invoice meth
ods, the exact advantage that would ac
crue to the sugar trust. He made the re
markable statement that he had been
credibly informed, and believed the
sngar trust, anticipating the enactment
of the senate sugar schedule, had pur
chased $112,000,000 worth of raw sugar.
If this was true, he said, the profits ac
cruing to the trust from this investment
on account of the senate schedule would
be at least $40,000,000. "The great
battle," said Wilson, warming, "is bet
ween the American people and the
sugar trust. It ia a battle in which the
, trust has taken the people by the throat,
and it will never end until we throw off
its grip."' "
There was enthusiastic applause at
this- He proceeded to state that the
house conferees had been willing to con
cede almost evertbing except those vital
items of sugar, iron and coal. The
senate conferees had also seemed willing
to concede much, but were apparently
dominated by the knowledge that if they
conceeded what the representatives
were demanding, the bill could not pass,
and the agreement would be useless.
Wilson closed at 11 :05 o'clock, having
talked just an hour. Montgomery, Mc
Millin, and Turner corroborated his
Crisp followed ; he spoke with much
t spirit and round after' round of applause
greeted his remarks. He spoke of the
' critical condition and the apparent need
to accept the senate bill, and then, if
need be, introduce separate bills for free
sugar, iron and coal. He said it was the
senate bill or nothing." As long
as there was a desperate chance of
securing the concessions the house de
manded, be was in favor of standing
out, but he was satisfied the time bad
come -when further insistence by the
house was useless. He offered a resolu
tion instructing the house conferees to
recede from the disagreement, and the
ways and means committee to bring in
separate free sugar, iron and coal bills.
A burst of applause greeted the reading
of the resolution, but half a dozen irate
democrats'were on their feet demanding
recognition, prominent among them
being Bourke Cockran, of New York.
Owing to the lateness of the hour, a rule
was adopted limiting further speeches
to five minutes. Then Cockran deliver
ed a vigorous . and eloqaent speech
against surrendering to the senate.
Better no tariff legislation than the
senate bill," he declared.
A division of the Crisp resolution was
demanded, so as to have a separate .vote
on the first part to recede from the disa
greement to the senate amendments
and the provisions , for separate' bills.
The first part was adopted by a rising
vote of 130 to 21, and the second part
without division. The caucus then ad
journed. Among, those ..who voted
against the resolution were the Louis
iana members, . Warner Straus, Tracy,
Cockran, Covert and Dunphy, of New
York ; Cooper of Indiana, Johnson of
Ohio, Kilgorerof Texas and Tarsney of
The vote on the passage of the senate
tariff bill should occur about 6 this

The Republicans Will Fight the Kill
Hard as 1'osslble.
Washington, Aug. 13. -It is the in
tention of the democratic managers of
the house to finish up everything today
it possible. . The committee on rules will
present a special order to carry out the
mandate of the caucus. The intention
is to pass- the tariff bill and then the
other bills named in the caucus resolu
The committee on rules- held a short
session. The republicans refused to ac
cept the terms proposed by the "demo
cratic members. ' The democrats pro
posed to allow an hour for debate upon
the senate amendments and in 15 min
utes on each of the other bills, which it
is proposed to bring in as separate
measures and allow no amendments to
be offered. ' At 2:20 p. . m. the rules
committee submitted a report for the
immediate consideration of the senate
tariff bill, to be ' followed by separate
bills for sugar, coal, iron ore and barbed
wire. Reed made a parliamentary ob
jection to the proceedure, claiming the
tariff bill was not before the house and
indicated the republicans' intention to
fight the bill and report in every proper
way. Crisp held the resolution in order
and before the house. The previous
questions was ordered without division.
Held to Appear Before "Superior Court.
Woodland, Cal., Aug. 13. At 1
o'clock today Judge 'Fisher rendered a
decision in the train-wrecking case. He
refused to allow the motion of dismissal,
and said the . evidence warranted the
holding of all five defendants to appear
before the superior ?ourt. Mrs. Knox
was visibly effected by the judge's de
cision, and cried bitterly during the
course of the judges remarks. The case
is postponed until the 21st ult., when
the defense will begin its testimony.
Over 350 witnesses have been eubpeenred.
Lowest' Stage Svcr Known.
Alton, III., Aug 13. Calhoun ceunty,
a long, narrow strip of rich agricultural
land between the Mississippi , and Illi
nois rivers, is cut off from the world by
the lowness of the - water. It has no
railroad communication, and boats can
not reach it. ' A horseman forded the
Mississippi Saturday- without getting
his saddle - wet. . The oldest inhabitant
never heard of the like. One light
draft , steamer still touches from tbe
Mississippi river side, but .only hand
ferries can cross "the Illinois. -
Vitality of the Horsefly.
The vitality of . tho small horsefly
after decapitation is as remarkable as
that of the snake that has undergone
tlie same process. He does not use his
.wings, if the beheading1 has been done
neatly, so as not to injure him other
wise,: but walks about, stopping1 now
and then for a "dry wash," rubbing' his
legs together and cleaning1 his wing's.
If touched, he will side off. If blown
upon he will cling-tig-htly to avoid be
ing carried away. This performance
he will continue for a quarter of an
hour or bo. "

An Old Song.
When giants lived In ancient times;
Sing heigh, my boy, sine no!
In good old England, or foreign climes,
Sing heig-h, my boy, sing ho!
They carried things with a high old hand, '
Nor strong, nor weak, could before them stand.
And they killed whom they pleased throughout
Sing heigh, my boy, sing ho!
But the giants didn't have things their
own way when- Jack-the-Giant-Killer
arrived on the scene. You remember
the Btory. Recollect, too, that every age
has its giant-killer. We have our giants
in the form of all sorts of dread diseases,
supposed to be incurable. Our Jack is
in the form of Dr. Pierce, who has proven
the expression "incurable diseases" to
be a fallacy. Can you imagine more
potent weapons to assist a woman in
killing the giant-disease, than Dr.
Pierce s Favorite Prescription? It's the
onlygnaranteed remedy for all functional
disturbances, painful . disorders, and
chronic weaknesses of womanhood.' In
female complaints of every kind, if it
ever fails to benefit or cure, you have
your money back. It's simply a ques
tion of the company you prefer the
Giant or Jack? ' "' ,
The Somerville Journal has a story
of little Dorothy, six years old, who,
like other children, is a born egotist.
She went out for a horse car ride with
her aunt. She had her new purse with
her and was very desirous to pay her
own fare, but her aunt said no. "You
are my g-uest," she explained to
Dorothy, "so I must pay your fare, but
you may take'the ten cents and hand it
to the conductor, if you like." So
Dorothy took the dime . and when the
conductor came along- she handed it
to him in the most dignified manner.
He gave her a quick look, and estimat
ing that 6he was under the five-year
limit, he rang- in only one fare, and
handed back a five-cent piece, which
Dorothy took without a word. "Wasn't
'it strang-e,'" she asked after' she 'gxt
home, "the conductor took my. fare,
but he didn't 'charge Aunt Alice any
fare at all?" - - . . -

Deafness Cannot be Cured
By local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There'is only one way to cure Deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of tbe mucous lining of the
Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets
inflamed you bave a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely
closed Deafness is Che result, and unless
the inflammation can be taken out and
this tube restored to its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by
catarrh, which is nothing but an - in
flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (.caused by catarth)
