Washington, Aug. 10, 1894.
After more than a month spent in
wrangling which has left a very bitter
feeling in the several factions of the
democratic party the democratic confer
ees have reached an agreement on the
tariff bill. Whether this agreement will
end the troubles of .the patched up
many-sided (none of them right) bill re
mains to be ssen. The agreement can
be put through the house under whip
and spur easy enough ; but, inasmuch
as some of the democratic senators
stated very plainly in advance that they
would regard any change from the senate
bill, which was made by a democratic
caucus, as absolving them from their
promise to support it, and that the votes
of the populists, Allen and Kyle, are as
likely to be cast against as' for the agree
ment, its chances for getting through the
senate are not specially bright, even ft
the republicans do nothing more than to
vote against it.
Prominent members of the party are
urging the republican senators to en
deavor to throw the whole business over
to the next session, so that the will of
the people may be ascertained at the
congressional elections before such a bill
becomes a law. The republican senators
have not decided to make any attempt,
but it is among the possibilities, that
they may. If the solid republican
strength in the senate should be thrown
in favor of postponing final action on the
bill until next December there is little
doubt that it could be accomplished, if
not by direct vote, by dilatory tactics.
Unless democratic senators can be made
to eat words publicly nttered a motion
to postpone further consideration of the
conference report until next December
would carry in the senate. " It is alto
gether probable that they will be put to
the test, anyway.
Secretary Herbert, when a democratic
member of the house, belonged to the
crowd which never failed to characterize
every trip of a republican official on a
government vessel as a "wicked waste
of public money in junketing," but
since he became secretary ot tbe'navy
he has become an expert in devising ex?
cuses for trips for himself and family at
government expense. ' His latest ex
ploit fn this line was the discovery that
the Atlantic navy yards were all in need
of the personal inspection of himself,
bis daughter, and his son, and possibly
of some of his friends. Accordingly the
dispatch boat Dolphin was ordered from
New London to Washington, where she
is now taking on supplies for a cruise of
thirty days. 'But, mind you, this isn't
to be a "junket ;". it is to be an official
inspection tour. What hypocrites these
democrats are, any way.
There was a persistent rumor floating
around this week that Senator Vest was
trying, through Dan. Lamont, the dep
uty president, to negotiate a treaty with
Mr. Cleveland, on the basis of Vest
casting his vote and influence in favor
of the house tariff bill in exchange for
the influence of Mr. Cleveland and the
administration being used to aid Vest
in bis fight to be returned to the senate.
Interest was added to the rumor by the
presence in Washington of ex-Gov.
Francis of Missouri, who had been by
general consent slated as the adminis
tration candidate for the seat now occu
pied by Senator Vest Republicans are
We have again on hand

Missouri have a fighting chance to elect
Vest's successor, and a red hot fight be

tive districts " of that state would just
Mr. Cleveland's success in putting
down the democratic revolt in the house
and compelling the caucus to adjourn
without action was not unexpected, but
there was one unexpected thing about
that caucus. - That was the presence of
ex-Gov. Russell of Massachusetts, the
man who represents the interests of the
Whitney coal syndicate, which Mr.
Cleveland has been trying hard to please
by having coal put on the free list. His
presence at that caucus was a bit of the
most unblushing ; lobbying ever exhib
ited at the capitol. It was thought that
the members of the sugar trust were
plentifully supplied with "gall," but
they confined their lobbying to commit
tee rooms and hotels. It is no wonder
that the democrats in both house and
senate are regarded as being trust rid
den, nor that a bill has been introduced
the senate prohibiting lobbying.
Secretary Gresham has deeply offended
some of the prominent church people,
who came to Washington to ask that he
adopt some method of securing protec
tion for the American missionaries in
China, Japan and Corea, by his brusque
manner of meeting their very reasonable
requests and his refusal to make any
promises. This isn't the first time that
Secretary Gresham has shown himself
to be indifferent to the fate of American
