t The woolen jrtiedule shows a few
changes of about 6 per cent reduction;
Collars and cuffs are increased from .35
to 45 per cent. There Is no change In
the cotton, lumber or lead products
schedules. The date for going into
effect of the bill is changed from June 1
to June 10, and a duty levied on ar
ticles imported or withdrawn for con
in tne internal revenue section is a
new provision directing the president to
Immediately notify the Hawaiian gov
ernment that, the United States will ter
minate In 12 months the treaty with
Hawaii made In 1875.
No change is made In the Imported
tobacco schedule. The proviso that the
reduction provided for as to Iron or
steel sheets thinner than No. 25, wire
gauge, shall take effect October 1, is
stricken out; also, a like proviso as to
tlnplates, terne plates and taggers' tin.
Boiler or other tube pipes, flues, 20 per
cent, Wilson bill 25. The same figures
are placed on east iron pipe; shears and

except gold, 30, Wilson bill 35; miscel
laneous metal articles not otherwise

The Internal revenue section makes
many verbal, but few essential changes
in the income tax. It makes a tax of 2
cents a pack on playing cards, similar
to the Wilson bill; taxes all tobacco,
cigars and cigarettes weighing over
tree pounds per thousand, 5 per 1,000;
paper cigarettes less than three pounds,
1; those wrapped In tobacco, 50 cents.
The provision in the Wilson bill" for
an annual reduction in duties in the

laps, 15 per cent; grain bags of bur
laps, 22 1-2, Wilson bill 20- nets, webbs,
seines, 35, Wilson bill 30; sole leather, 10
per cent, Wilson bill 3.
The income tax retains a rate of 2
per cent on incomes over $4,000, as In
the Wll3on bill, but broadens the classes
of income by adding the words "from
any source, whatever," the tax to apply
to "every citizen of the United States,
and every person residing therein."
The senate makes the collectors of in
ternal revenue the officers in charge of!
the collection of the Income taxes, In
stead of deputy collectors, as provided
In the Wilson bill. The right of appeal
against the imposition of unjust taxes
is retained, but final decision rests with
the commissioner of internal revenue,
and not with the secretary of the treas
ury, as provided In the house bill.
The following exceptions to the tax
are Inserted: "Provided, that dividends
or interest accruing to states, counties
or municipalities, and dividends, Inter
est or annuities accruing to corpora
tions or associations organized and con
ducted solely for charitable, rcligiius
or educational purposes, or to any trus
tees or other Judiciary, on stocks,
shares, funds or securities held solely
or charitable, religious or educational
purpo?o, or salaries lue .state, tounty
or municipal officers, fhall not be sub
ject' to such tax or deduction."
In taxing salaries of employes of cor
porations, the house bill makes it the
duty of corporations to pay the tax of
each employe and then deduct It from
the selniies. The senate bill relieves the
eorfHiratlons from becoming taxpayers
forkhelr employes, and compels the lat
ter 'to make direct payments to the col
lector. The time when returns on in
come taxes are to be made Is changed
from the first day of March to the first
"Monday" Of March. The section mak
ing it a perjury to falsify any preced
ing under the Income tax Is stricken
Additional changes are as follows:
Hops, 20 per cent ad valorem, Wilson
bill 8 cents per pound; fish, smoked,
dried, salted, pickled, 15 per cent, WI1
boh bill 3-4 cent pet' pound. Precious
stones of all kinds, cut, not set, 15 per
cent, Wilson bill 30; if set, 30, Wilson
bill 35. .
The free list is not so much changed
as it was supposed it would be, and
the abstractions from it are far more
numerous than the additions. Apples
of all kinds are stricken from the free
list and placed on the dutiable list,
are also beef, mutton and pork. I3ltu
mlnous coal, shale, coal slack and coke
are transferred to the duWable list,
leaving anthracite on the free list.
Diamonds and other precious stones,
rough or uncut, are added to the free
list. Iron ore end sugar are moved to
the dutiable list.
There Is a touch of reciprocity in
pnwlso attached to the paragraph ad
nfittlng agricultural implements free,
the proviso being to the effect that all
articles mentioned in the paragraph
"when Imported from1 any country
which lays an import duty on like ar
tlclea coming from the United States
shall be subject to duties existing prior
to the passage of this act."
The administrative features of th
bill are substantially Identical with
those of the house bill. An exception in
tho Wilson bill as to personal effects
not subject to duty is enlarged to read
"And personal and household effects
specifically enumerated In the new list
of this act." Tho sections covering the
tax on spirits are new throughout.
Several Features of ' the Tariff
Which Are Objectionable.
Washington, March 8. The proceed'
lngs of the Benate committee on finance
were in the main informal today. Copies
of the bill were handed all the mem
bers, and there was some discussion for
a time for the consideration of the bill
by the full committee, the republican
members saying, they would desire a
reasonable period and the democratic
members expressing themselves as will
ing to grant that without cavil. Satur
day next, at 10 a. m., was set for the
next meeting, when the republicans will
probably be able to say what they will
require. It Is considered probable th'it
they will ask for an entire week after
the next meeting day, and posBlbly
more.-i The democratic ' members say
that whatever mayioccur hereaftsr will
be chargeable to the republicans, and
they must assume the responsibility.
Senator Jones, of Arkansas, chairman
of the tariff sub-committee, Is of the
opinion that the bill as reported would
produce a revenue of about $470,000,000
or $480,000,000, without taking Into hc-
count the Increased amount which
would be the result of reductions in
Senator Hill declined to say anything
on the bill until he made his speech
The Pacific Coast senators gun. -lly
tAPieaaeu iiicrnsei ves against tne
ure of the bill which abrogates th
treaty with Hawaii, because so trany
people of the Coast have large Invest
ments In the Hawaiian sugar planta
Hons and because the commerce of the
Coast had been greatly aided by the
Project Being Favorably Consid
ered by New Zealanders.
Wellington, N. Z., March 8. The pos
tal and cable conference, after an ani
mated dl.'icuBElon today, unanimously
adopted a substitute for yesterday't
resolution in favor of a Pacific cable tc

and Honolulu, to Vancouver. The sub

a period not to exceed 14 years, of 4
per cent on a capital of 1,800,000 to any
comiiany laying the telegraphic' cable.
The tariff Is not to exceed three shll
lint's per word for ordinary telegramf

During the course of the debate which

The Ex-Detective Vindicated
by a Chicago Jury.
AN EXCITING SCENE IN COURT
His Friends Cheer and Wave Their
Hats and Extend Their
'' Chicago, March 8. Daniel Coughlin,
the ex-detectlve who has been on trial
for several weeks past for complicity In
the assassination of Patrick Henry
Cronln, Is now a free man, the Jury
having Teturned a verdict of not guilty
late this afternoon. When the verdict
was read a great shout wept up from
the crowd In the court room. Hats were
thrown high In the air, handkerchiefs
waved and cheer after cheer broke upon
the stiff and stately court room, and a
mad rush was made for the door by
those who were anxious to tell the news
to the crowds outside. ' Judge Tuthlll,
his face aflame with Indignation at this
breach of court equlette, demanded si
lence and the bailiffs vigorously pound
ed for order, but It took considerable
time for the enthusiasm of the crowd
to Bubslde. The newspaper men, his
old-time friends before his troubles were
on him, went up In a body and nearly
wrung his hand off.
"It's all right, boys, all right," gasped
Coughlin, as he reached for three or
four hands at once. "It'B all right,
boys, I won't forget you. You treated
me all right."
Then the prisoner worked his way up
to the Jury-box and shook hands with
as many as he could reach, '. He then
started to leave the room.
Just then a cry of "Make way there
open a passage; make way," was heard
and two stalwart bailiffs pushed
through the crowd," and" close .behind
them, her hat awry, her yell halt up,
gasping with Bobs that choked her,
came Mrs. Coughlin. :
"Dan, come back; here's your wife,'
called 60 voices, and Coughlin prompt
ly retraced his steps and met his wle.
The woman gave an Incoherent cry;
her arms went up and fastened them
selves around her husband's neck, then
she gave way utterly. She only said
"Dan! Oh, Dan!"
concede Just as much as Ireland extorts
by the organization of her people. The
time has arrived, not only for plain
speaking, but prompt action, and we
call upon you no longer to tolerate the
policy of national subserviency to Eng
lish party interests. Organize the forces
of our race In support of the Strugs'0
for a national government, inslat tht't
the cause of Ireland be kept solidly to
the front by those who speak in your
behalf, and show you regard it nobler
In your race and more befitting the dig
nity and honor of Ireland to continue.
If necessary, the bitter struggle with
both the English peoples, than eontlnus
to be the scorn of one and the deluded
dupes of the other."
THE BLUEFIELDS INCIDENT.
Preparation of Cleveland's Reply to the
Washington, March 8. The president
has turned over to the secretary of state
the preparation of his answer to the
Morgan resolution- calling for Informa
tion relative to the landing of British
troops at Blueflelds, Nicaragua. There
is reason to believe the president Is
preparing for a vigorous and unmis
takable assertion of the rights of the
United States In the control of Central
America, and that the correspondence
will Include imittera of later date than
tho brief report from Minister Baker
of the landing of the British troops. It
Is still hoped he troops were landed
solely to protect the lives and property
of British subjects, instead of for the
purpose of interfering between Nicar
agua and the Mosquito government, but
there Is no disposition to disguise the
real gravity of the Incident, for al
though the British have often talked vt
their rights for a protectorate and even
threatened it, never before In this ceni
tury has It come to pass that British
troops actually landed In Central
America since the assertion of the Mon
roe doctrine to assert a protectorate.
Chief P. M. Arthur's real estate In
Cleveland Is assessed at $45,650, and Is
worth about $86,000, a faci consistent
with his generally conservative course
In labor disputes. -
Lieut Gen. Peter Frederick Stein
mann died the other day at his estate
of Tyblerggaard, on the Island of Zee-
land, Denmark, at the age of 82. He
commanded the Danish forces on the
Island of Olsen, In the Prusso-Danlsh
war of 1864. In 1874 he was made mln
later of war. '
Stephen Bailey, aged 75, one of the
most successful colored men of Mary
land, who died recently, was a half
brother of Frederick Douglass.
Some one, they say, told Thomas
Bailey Aldrlch the other day that a cer
tain very vigorous Boston bluestocking
had called him effeminate. "So I am,"
he replied, "compared with her."
