carried him in trlmuph to the rear of
the hall, where for ten minutes he
listened to the words of praise B'-.wied
upon him. It was a remarlcahlo dem
onstration in every respect. The time
had now arrived for a vote on the bill
and pending amendments, but the dis
order was so great that the sergeant-at-arms
was called upon to clear the
aisles, and the wives ot members who
had been allowed upon the floor were
obliged to retire. '
Some cheering greeted the announc-
ment of the vote. The bill was en
grossed, and the third time, the last
stage In the passage of the bill, had
been reached, when Covert, democrat,
of New York, standing In the center
aisle, moved to recommit the bill to
the committee with Instructions to re
port back with Buch amendments as
will provide by duties levied upon im
ports, for such additional revenue as
may be necessary to support the gov
ernment economically administered.
Upon that motion Cochran demanded
the ayes and nays, but only 36 demo
crats rose to the second demand prin
cipally those who had voted against
the income tax, together with the Lou
isiana sugar men not a sufficient num
ber. The motion to recommit was then
defeated on a rising vote of 103 to 177.
Then came the final yote on the bill
itself, on which an aye and nay vote
was asked and granted by a rising vote.

For hours boron: the debate began, the
i corridors loading to the galleries were
a surging mnss of humanity, which fl
nally liecame no great that men cried
out In terror and women fainted In
fright. It Is estimated that over 20,000
attempted to gain admittance to the
galleries ot tho hoiise today. Every
available seat was occupied long before
tho gavel dropped.- So great did the
crush becofne that members secured
permission to bring their wives upon
the floor. In one of the aisles a fight
was precipitated between, two men over
the color Question. One .of the com
batants Wiif a negro demanding his full
rights as an American citizen, and the
other 'wasv,a white man making the
same claim. This claim Included the
right to stand on the same Bquare foot

for both, a race war resulted. The

followed, Reed, Crisp and Wilson, while
their partisans made the air vocal with
shouts of approval. The appearance of
the speaker cf - the house upon the
floor, engaged In debate, was In Itself
remarkable, as well as an unusual
thing. Each of the speakers seemed to
be in his best form, and the speeches
today will rank among the most bril
liant of their lives.
On the first roll call, the barley
amendment was defeated 170 to 109. It
was significant as the first test vote
sustaining the bill.
The amendment making barley 22
cents and malt 37 cents per bushel,
was lost 120 to 197. The committee
amendment to raise the duty on malt
from 20 to 25 per cent, and on barley
malt from 25 to 323 per cent, was car
ried 204 to 114.
The other amendments, Including that
abolishing the bounty on rugar and that
placing refined sugar on the free list,
were agreed to in bulk without di
vision. Tho first amendment which Johnson
desired a separate vote upon was plac-
jng wool upon the free list Immediately
after the passage of the bill. The
johnGon amendment was therefore
agreed to without division.
Tom Johnson, democrat, of Ohio, ask
ed for a separate vote on the wool
schedule. C. M. Stone, republican, of
Pennsylvania, for a separate vote on
petroleum, and Tracy, democrat of
New York, on the Internal revenue, in
cluding the Income tax. All other
amendments were agreed to.
The standing vote on the amendment
fixing the time when the wool schedule
shall go Into effect as August 2, 1894,
was carried 205 to 45. A standing vote
on the amendment to the manufactured
wool schedule, to go into effect Decem
ber 2, was carried 186 to 42. The vote
on the amendment putting petroleum on
the free list, striking out reciprocity,
carried 170 to 44, without roll call.
Yeas and nays were ordered on the In
ternal revenue bill. Bourke Cochran
asked unanimous consent to vote on the
Income tax separate from the Internal
revenue schedules. Objection was made
Tho speaker ruled that the Internal
revenue amendment must be voted as
one ot the amendments.
The republicans, with a few excep
tions, refused to vote, but the amend
ment, including the Income tax, was
adopted 182 to 50. The populists voted
In the affirmative, as did also the fol
lowing republicans: Bowers, Fletcher,
Hartman, Marshal, Plckler, White, and
Sweet, of Idaho. ThoBe who voted
against the amendment were: Babcock,

A ROMANCE OF WHITTIER'S EARL
A pleasant reminder of Whlttler's ear-'
ly days has Just come to light ln the
lorm of an old letter written Jjy him
In 1827. It secmst hat about that time,
i beautiful young lady by the name of
Bray came to Haverhill to have her
portrait painted by an artist by the
name of Porter. When the plctufe was
flnlshed Whlttler saw It and was charm
ed with 4ts beauty. He sought out the
lady, and was the more deeply Impress
ed with her beauty than when he first
saw the picture, and ln the letter abova
referred to he sold to the friend to
whom ho was writing that he "nearly
believed ho loved her." Why he did
not press the matter further is not
known, but the lady afterward mar
ried a Boston man, and Is now living
