The Senate Is Making Rapid Progress
on the Tariff Bill.
Washington, June 33. The senate
made giant stitches on the tariff bill
today, oovering 66 pages and establish
ing a record for progress during this
tariff debate. The last two schedules
of the dutiable list, covering paper and
manufactured sugars, were completed,
with the exception of the paragraphs
on hides, gloves, ooal and some' lesser
articles, which went over. This ad
vanced the senate to the free list, which
was taken up at 2 P. M. and completed
in three hours. Early in the day the
. wool and silk schedules went over with
an agreement that wool would be taken
up tomorrow. After that the tobacco
sohedule, the , reciprocity provisions
and the internal revenue portions of
the bill, as well as many isolated para
graphs passed over, remain to be con
sidered. The progress was so marked,
however, that for the first time there
was a feeling that the end was not far
There was little debate today, the
main topio of discussion, being matches
and fuses. On the. latter item an
amendment by Pettigrew, reducing the
rate to 10 per cent, came within one
vote of passing, against the protest of
the finance committee, the Vote being
a tie, 24 to 24. While the free list
was under consideration Bacon gave no
tioe of an amendment placing cotton
ties on the free list, and McLaurin
gave notice of another amendment tak
ing raw cotton from the free list, thus
completing the action heretofore taken
of plaoing a duty of 20 per cent on cot
ton. House Proceedings.

Their Plot Frustrated.
San Francisco, June 28. -Twice
each day Convict-William Prekie, serv
ing a sentence at Folsom, is triced up
by his thumbs. He is also on a bread
and water diet. This treatment has
been resorted to in order to force Prekie
to tell the prison officials where a num
ber of firearms that were to have been
used in an attempt to escape from
prison are concealed. -
The prisoners besides Prekie involved
in the attempted break for freedom are
Robert Kelly, who when sent to San
Quentin for burglary murdered a fellow

Oaxaca, Mexico, June 28. Earth
quake shocks and heavy rains have
seriously interrupted telegraph commu

pec during the last three days.
Advices were received here last night
that the official commission sent to the
city of Tehauntepeo . by President Diaz
to investigate the reported formation of
a volcano and the extent of the earth
quake damages, has arrived at its desti
nation and found the condition of
affairs much worse than they had ex
pected. The town of Tehauntepeo con
tained about 15,000 inhabitants, and is
completely destroyed so far as houses
and buildings are concerned, not one
remaining standing. There were a
number of substanital and costly build
ings in the town. The people are liv
ing in tents and in the open air on the.
outskirts of the place.. The earthquake
shocks continue to be felt at frequent
intervals, and the people are terrified.
The heavy smoke and other indications
of an aotive volcano to the west of

the President Determined to
Revive the Treaty.
S PROFITING BY EXPERIENCE
K Mew Treaty Has Already Been
Drafted to Serve as a Basis for the
Washington, June 22. President
McKinley has determined' to revive the
general treaty of arbitration between
the United States and Great Britain.
He has already turned his attention to
the subject, and under the direction of
Secretary Sherman, the matter has pro
gressed to the extent that a new treaty
has already been drafted to serve as the
basis of negotiations. In the ' draft
which is to be used as the basis there
are said to be none of the objetoionable
points which caused the failure of the
Olney treaty. It is not. in contempla
tion that the treaty will be submitted
to the senate before next December,
and there is reason to believe that the
attitude of the senate toward a new
treaty will be fully canvassed and un
derstood before the treaty is signed.
It is understood that the initiative in
the present case will be taken by the
government, as the failure of the former
treaty, by the inaction of the senate,
left the subject in such condition that
the British government did not feel
disposed to renew negotiations until
first invited by the United States.
Sir Julian Pauncefote leaves Wash
ington next week for Great Britain.
It was understood at first that the am
bassador would take a copy of the new
treaty with him, but this will not be
done. It is expected, however, that a
draft Will be in London at no distant
day, in whion case Sir Julian Paunce
fote will be in communication with the
foreign office to consider the terms of '
the instrument. .
SENATOR PERKINS' VIEWS.
Prefers British Columbia to the Ha
- walian Islands.
' New York, June 23. A dispatch to
the World from Washington says: Sen
ator Perkins, Republican, of California,
is strongly disposed to join his Demo
cratic colleague, Senator White, in op
position to the proposed annexation of
"I am familiar with the islands,"
said he, "and I am very doubtful as to
the wisdom of this policy. There is
one feature of some moment that I have
not yet seen touched upon. Within
the last year or two there have been a
large number of merchant vessels built
on the Clyde for the Hawaiian trade.
They fly the Hawaiian flag, but are
English vessels. . Under the proposed
treaty those ships would naturally be
come entitled to American registry, for
they would oome in with the islands.
Thee is nothing in the treaty to pre
vent them from coming in, nor to pre
vent the Englishmen from building
more vessels in anticipation of annexa
tion and claiming American registry
for all of them. In that case they
would probably soon take away all of
our coastwise trade and render idle for
some years our American shipyards.
"There is another, -end perhaps more
important question involved. The an
nexation Of Hawaii would, it seems to
me, utterly ruin the. beet sugar indus
try that is now beginning to assume
considerable proportions in California
and other parts of the West. With
coolie labor the Hawaiians can produce
sugar and refine it for 2 cents a pound.
Beet sugar costs anywhere from to
4 cents a pound to produce, and we
could not compete. Then, too, the
planters of Hawaii have a trust just as
tyrannical and importunate as the
sugar trust, and it would not be long
before the two joined forces and had
the whole country at their mercy. -
"I shall not set up my personal views
against those of the majority of the peo
ple, but I am far from being an enthu
siastic annexationist. The idea that we
need Hawaii as a coaling station is
foolish, because ships going from San
Francisco to Japan or China would
have to go 500 miles out of the way to
touch at Hawaii. It would be much
more convenient to establish a coaling
station at one of the Aleutian islands,
which already belong to us and are
within 75 miles of the path of ocean
"I do . not appreciate, either, the
argument that we need Hawaii because
of its strategic value. The islands are
2,000 miles from San Francisco. Eng
land has at Esquimalt a fortress which
she is every day rendering more and
more impregnable, and which is much
nearer to San Frbncisoo. I would be
much more favorably disposed towards
a proposition to purchase British Co
lumbia. It would be much more valu
able to us than Hawaii.",
A Deficiency in Pennsylvania.
- Harr.isburg, Pa., June 22. Deputy
Attorney-General Elkins gave out a
statement tonight on the condition of
the state finances, which shows there
is a deficit of $3,500,000 in the state
treasury. Mr. Elkms says the legisla
ture has for several years appropriated
more money than the net revenues of
the state,- hence the present large deficiency.
Spanish Manifesto Demands That th
Cuban Reign of Terror Cease
London, June 28. The Madrid cor
respondent of the Times says: Th
Spanish liberals have adopted an atti
tude, which will probably create a pro-
found sensation, both here and in the
United States, but which is little cal
culated to improve the situation. At
a meeting of ex-ministers of the liberal
party on Sunday Senor Sagasta made
an energetio speeoh, denouncing the
home and foreign pohoy of the premier
and his conduct during the recent crisis,
which Sagasta insisted had led the peo
ple to criticise the decision of the crown.
The meeting resolved to issue a man
ifesto, declaring that the liberals would
persist in abstaining from all relations
with the government, so long as the
Duke of Tetuan is retained in the cab
inet. The manifesto will also assert
that the liberals were the' authors of
the first colonial reform scheme in 1894,
but curtailed it in 1895 in order to ob
tain the support of the conservatives.
The manifesto will characterize the
proposed reforms of Canovas as inade
quate and suggest the replacement of
Captain-General Weyler by a governor
who will continue the war in accord
ance with civilized practices, the stop
ping of the reign of terror and devasta
tion of property in Cuba, and the ap
pointment of a civilian as royal com
missioner, with full powers distinot
from the military authorities, to exe
cute reforms of the widest autonomy in
political, administrative, economical,
tariff and legislative matters, compati
ble with the preservation of the im
The manifesto will promise to go very
far in the direction of a sacrifice of
Spanish commercial interests, and of
sharing the burden of colonial war.
debts in order to secure peace.
PLAN TO END THE WAR.
Sugar Trust Would Buy Cuban Island
New York, June 28. A dispatch to
the Herald from Washington says: A
story is current that the sugar trust has
evolved or accepted an ambitious sug
gestion that Cuba is substantially for
sale, and might as well become a sugar
plantation for a gigantic corporation
supported by the sympathy and interest
of our country. In other words, that
we might have a West Indian Com
pany, as England had, and a Hudson
Bay Company, each of which aided in
the extension of British empire.
It is said the Spanish minister to the
United States cabled reoently to Madrid
reports of the disposition of our gov
ernment to. decline to interfere by
force and also to support Cuban auton
omy, and that this cable prevented the
reoall of Weyler, when a change in the
Spanish ministry was in the air, and
prevented sending to Cuba Campos,
who, having closed the ten years '. war
with cash in hand, might do the same
job now by the same means much
cheaper than Spain can keep 200,000
soliders in the field. . -:
Colonel J. J. Cook is the gentleman
credited with the imagination to con
ceive the capture of Cuba with cash as
a measure of peace.
In the House of Commons.
London, June 28. The house of

the first lord of the treasury, Mr. Bal

Harcourt, liberal leader, seconded, an"
address of congratulation to the queen.
Dillon, chairman of the Irish parlia
mentary party, protested.
John Redmond, a Parnellite leader,
amid laughter from the conservatives
and unionists, moved an amendment to

soene. ' Redmond - protested against
Great Britain's rule in Ireland, and
asked that house to adopt an amendment

lation, poverty and continued suspen
sion of constitutional liberties,' with
the result that the Irish are discon

Best' Day's Work the Senate
Has Done So Far.
TWO SCHEDULES FINISHED
Spirits, Wines, Beverages and Manu
factured Goods Flax and Wool Will
. Be the Next to Come.
Washington, June 19. The senate
made greater progress today on the tar
iff bill than any day since the debate
opened. Two entire schedules, cover
ing 20 pages, were completed, namely,
schedule H, on spirits, wines and bev
erages, and schedule I, on manufactur
ed cotton goods. This brings the sen
ate to the flax schedule with the im
portant wool schedule standing next. -
The portion of the bill passed today
is substantially the same as that re
ported, the committee changes being
unimportant, while the opposition
amendments of Jones of Arkansas and
Vest were systematically rejected by
majorities varying from five to ten.
Allison secured the adoption of a
new paragraph to the cotton schedule
with a view of compensating the cot
ton manufacturers for the reoent ac
tion of the senate in' placing raw cot
ton oh the dutiable list.
In paragraph 289, on motion of Alli
son, the house provision . was restored.
The remaining paragraphs on spirits
(290 to 293 inclusive) were agreed to
as reported, without opposition.
The wine paragraph led to some dis
cussion. That on ohampagne and other
sparkling wines was agreed to as re
ported. The committee paragraph on
still wines was perfected by . striking
out the provision for an additional duty
of 8 cents on each bottle or jug and the
substitution of a provision that the
filled bottles or jugs shall 'pay the
same duty as if empty.
White presented statements from
representative wine men of California,
criticising the paragraphs on wines as
not affording sufficient protection.
White added his views that thes
wines, brandies, and similar articles
should be liberally taxed on the prin
ciple that they are articles of luxury,
although he would not make the tax
Vest said the rates were praotically
prohibitory. In effect, it oompelled
people to drink California wine or go
The senate paragraph was agreed to.
The paragraph on cherry juice, etc.
(298), was modified by the committee
to include the house proviso of "con
taining no alcohol, or not more than
eighfper cent of aloohol," and thus
On ginger ale, soda water, etc. ,(299),
the committee changed the wording
from "other similar waters" to "bev
erages containing no alcohol." The
paragraph was then agreed to with a
committee provision that all filled bot
tles shall have the character of their
contents blown in the bottles.
Schedule I, cotton manufactures,
was then taken up. The first para
graph (801), cotton thread and yarn,
was contested by Jones of Arkansas.
He spoke at length on the ability of
the American cotton manufacturer to
compete against the foreign' producer
without high duties.
The debate, although on the first
paragraph of the cotton schedule, tock
a wide range, covering the entire cot
Jones of Arkansas offered an amend
ment in the nature of a test on the en
tire cotton schedule, proposing the
Wilson rates on cotton thread and
yarns. Rejected, 20 to 30, . MoEnery
voting with the Republicans in-the
negative. The Democratic senatois,
Bacon, Clay, McLaurin and Tillman,
who had voted for a duty on raw cot
ton, were in the affirmative -on this
motion to reduoe the rate on manufac
tured cotton. After this contest, rapid
progress was made on the schedule,
the paragraphs being agreed to as re
ported. On motion of Allison, paragraph 815
was changed to exclude braids and gor
ings, inserting suspenders and braces
at 40 per cent and reducing the 'rate on
labels for garments to 50 cents pet
pound and 80 per cent ad valorem.
Allison also proposed a new para
graph, 8193, with a view to meeting
the duty heretofore imposed on raw
cotton. He said the duty on raw cot
ton, if it remained in the bill, would
probably require an entire overhauling
of the cotton schedule at a later date.
The additional paragraph provides that
n all cotton yarns finer than No. 10
ingle, and on the goods manufactured
thereof, the duty shall be 10 per cent
in addition to the rates of the cotton
Tillman said he was one of the Dem
ocrats voting for a duty on raw cotton.
He avowed that he wanted the bill
loaded as heavily as possible, so as to
disgust the people . and have them
"turn you out." .

Nearly All the Spaniards Killed or Else
Havana, June 22. A few days ago a
party of soldiers arrived her from Fort
Mogoles, five leagues from the city of
Santa Clara." They say that an attack
was made upon the fort by a band of
insurgents and that most of the garrison
died defending the fort. All the am
munition was captured and all the sur-
vivors of the garrison excepting them
selves were taken prisoners by the insur
gents.' Official advices state that a hot en
gagement' occurred at Mantua, Pinar
del Rio. The Spanish marines and in
fantry forces were largely outnumbered
by the .insurgents, and after several
hours' fieroe fighting, the regulars were
compelled to seek refuge in a near-by
town. They met with large losses ixi
killed and wounded, many of whom
were left on the field.
From the Curaooa trooha come re
ports that large forces of insurgents
have approached the trocha with the
intention of crossing. They are be
lieved to be under command of Gomez.
Captain-General Weyler will go to '

A Woman Ejected When She Attempted
to Defend Her Husband.
New York, June 22. Herman Wars
iwiak, the Christianized Hebrew who
has been , seeking admission into the
Presbyterian church as a minister, and
whofor a long time had the support of
Rev. Dr. John Hall, of the Fifth-avenue
Presbyterian church,' was today
publicly denounced before the congre
gation of that church as an immoral
person and guilty of gambling. He
was also suspended from the com
munion of the church. When the
judgment was read to the fashionable
congregation, Mrs. Warszawiak, who
was present, declared in a loud voice
that her husband was innocent. She
was put out' of the church, while the
pastor announced a hymn to quiet the
congregation. Mrs. Warszawiak saifl:
"My husband is innocent. I cannot
hear him harshly spoken of before so
many people and not defend him."
The ushers, at a signal from Dr.
Pritchard, of Alexander chapel, who
had taken Dr. Hall's place for the day,
led Mrs. Warszawiak from the church. .
The congregation had begun to sing the.
hymn. The lady at first . resisted, but
was prevailed upon to leave. Not
withstanding the singing of the hymn,
the excitement, though suppressed, was
intense. 'After the incident the serv.
ices went on as usual.
DRAGOONS IN THE AIR.
Successful Trials of Flying Machines
Berlin, June 22. Naval experts at
Kiel are now testing the practical use
of dragon-shaped airships, which may
be put on board vessels for use during
naval engagements and in reconnoiter
ing. Some of the balloons rose 600
feet, remaining fast to the deck of the
torpedo boat steaming 14 knots an hour,
enabling the balloonists to make obser
vation of stations of vessels at great dis
tances. ' The observations made were
communicated by telegraph or tele
phone from the balloons to persons on
the decks of the vessels below, enabling
them to change the course of the latter
accordingly. The whole series of
experiments oocupied a fortnight, and
were eminently successful.
