Immediately after the reading of the

for the remainder of the week was re

and agreed to. Mr. Talbert, of South
Carolina, introduced the following
resolution : “Resolved, That the com.

before it looking to a chunge in the
Friday’s session of the sennte was s
veritable volcano in full eruption. If
belched forth molten lava, amt strewed
hot ashes everywhere. It was indig
iiant with Mr. Cleveland, and it hcsi
tated not to express its indignation and
determination not to he bulldozed by
what it characterizes as impertinent
executive interference. Though there
was no action — only talk—such scenes
of intense excitement, of bitterness, of
eruption, have seldom been witnessed
in the senate chamber. Mr. Smith,
of New Jersey, the man who has made
the fight for tho sugar trust,
started it by a speech predicting that
it would the senate bill or no bill.
Then came David Hill in the role of
champion of President Cleveland. Mr.
Hill made a speech that will go down
in history as one of the most remark
able efforts of the century. He spoke
for free raw material, endorsing what
Mr. Cleveland said for that. Heulog
ized the president for his bold, fearless
stand for free raw material, then roast
ed him for his stand in favor of a duty
on sugar and showed up his inconsistent
positions on the income tax, and final
ly admonished theseuate to recede from
its amendments on the grounds that if
it did not, and the house should ac
cept them, the president would veto
the bill. The entire speech wns a most
remarkable utterance. It made his
senatorial colleagues as mad as hor
nets that he should have endorsed tne
president’s abuse of the senate, but
the representatives who were present
listened with expressions of thorough
approval and delight. Then Senator
Vest, who is one of the senate con
ferees, arraigned the president. He
simply roasted Mr. Cleveland for his in
terference, and predicted that the senate
bill would become a law or the Mc-
Kinley bill would remain. Senators
Gray, Vilas, Caffrey and Blanchard
consumed the balance of the day. All
except Mr. Vilas held that the senate
bill must stand. Mr. Vilas wanted the
one-eighth of a cent differential duty
in favor of tho sugar trust stricken off.
The debato during the day indicated
that the senate is determined at this
time to stand by its bill.
The excitement in and around the
senate chamber Monday was much
greater than even on Friday last, when
action was expected to be taken on
disagreeing to the conference report
on the tariff bill. An hour before the
time of meeting, the doors of the pub
lic galleries were besieged by crowds
striving to obtain admittance, and by
noon, when the proceedings began,
there was not a vacant seat in
the galleries except in the diplo
matic gallery, and there were hun
dreds of people in the hulls and cor
ridors and on the marble stairways
who were unable to get iuside the

Mr. Cleveland’s statement to several
senators that he wanted a bill passed,
committed him finally to the Gorman
compromise bill. From this premise
he argued that the president's letter
was an act of usurpation, character
izing it, as “the iriostextraordinai y,un
called for and unwise letter ever penned
by a president of the United States.”
Mr. Gorman called on Mr. Vest to
verify his broad statements. Amid
intense excitement Mr. Vest somewhat
hesitatingly arose and told wliat he
knew of the matter. Mr. Vest said
that Mr. Carlisle had told him that the

LAWRENCEVILLE.GEORGIA, FRIDAY, JULY 27, 1894.
REGARDING THE TARIFF SET
FORTH IN A STRONG LETTER.
A Document Which Will Coin ill aml
The following is a summary of 'Presi
dent Cleveland’s letter to Representa
tive Wilson on the tariff situation,
which Mr. Wilson read as a part of
his remarks in the house Thursday af
“Executive Mansion, Washington,
July 19, 1894.—(Personal.) —Hon.
William L. Wilson—My Dear Sir:
The certainty that a conference will
be ordered between the two houses of
congress for the purpose of adjusting
differences on the subject of tariff leg
islation makes it also certain that you
will be again called on to do hard ser
vice in tho cause of tariff reform.
“My public life has been so closely
related to the subject; I have so long
ed for its accomplishment, and have so
often promised its realization to my
fellowing-countrymen as a result of
their trust and confidence in the dem
ocratic party that I hope no excuse is
necessary for my earnest appeal to you
that in this crisis that you strenuously
insist upon party honesty and good
faith and a sturdy adherence to demo
cratic principles. I believe these ab
solutely necessary to the continuation
of democratic existence.
“I cannot rid myself of the feeling
that this conference will present the
best, if not the only, hope of true de
mocracy. Indications point to its ao
tion as the reliance of those who desire
the genuine frnitiou of democratic ef
fort, the fulfillment of democratic
pledges and tho redemption of demo
cratic promises to the people. To
reconcile differences in the details
comprised within the fixed and well
defined lines of principle will not be
the task of the conference, but as
it seems to be, its members will
also have in charge the question
whether democratic principles them
selves are to be saved or abandoned.
There is no excuse for mistaking or
misapprehending the feeling and tho
temper of the rank and file of the de
mocracy. They are downcast under
the assertion that their party fails in
ability to manage the government, and
they are ayjjrehensive that efforts to
bring out jrariff reform may fail, but
Unbare mlfcih more downcast and ap-

be accordeSJWr people and our manu
facturers as soon asthedemocraticparty
was invested with the power to deter
mine the tariff policy of the country.
Tho party now Jias the powor. We
arc as certain today ns we have ever
been of the great benefit that would
accrue to the country from the inau
guration of this pe’icy and nothing
has occurred to release ns from our
obligation to secure this advantage to
our people. It must b« admitted that
no tariff measure can accord with dem
ocratic principles and promises, or
bear a genuine democratic badge that
does not provide for free raw material.
* * * It is quite apparent that this
question of free raw material does not
admit of adjustment on any middle
ground, since their subjection to
any rate of taxation, great or small,
Is a like violation of democratic
principle and democratic good faith.
“I hope that you will not consider
it intrusive if I eay something in re
lation to another subject which can
hardly fail to be troublesome to the
conference. I refer to the adjustment
of tariff taxation on sugar. Under our
party platform, and in accordance with
our declared party purposes, sugar is
a legitimate and logical article of reve
nue taxation. Unfortnuately, how
ever, incidents have accompanied cer
tain stages of the legislation which
will be submitted to the conference that
have aroused in connection with this
subject a natural democratic animosity
to the methods and manipulations
of trusts and combinations. I confess
to sharing in this feeling, yet it seems
to me we ought, if possible, to suffi
jiently free ourselves from prejudice
to enable us coolly to weigh the con
siderations which in formulating tariff
legislation ought to guide our treat
meut of sugar as a taxable article.
While no tenderness should be enter
tained for trusts, and while I am de
cidedty opposed to granting, under
guise of taxation, any opportu
nity to further their peculiar
methods, I suggest that wo ought
not to be driven.away from tho demo
cratic principle and policy which leads
to the taxation of sugar by the fear,
quite likely exaggerated, that in car
rying out thiH principle and policy we
may indirectly and inordinately en
courage a combination of sugar refill
ing interests. 1 know that in preset
conditions this is a delicate subje.!,
and I appreciate the depth and strength
of the feeling which its treatment has
aroused. * « *
“In the conclusion of the conference
touching the numerous itenrs whict
will be considered the jjeo/Je are not
afraid that their interests t 111 bo neg
lected. They know that tho result, so
far as these are concerned, will be to
placo home necessaries and comforts
easier within their reach and to instiro
bettor and surer compensation to those
“We know that a tariff covering all
the varied interests and conditions of
a country as vast asoursmustof neces
sity be largely the result of honorable
adjustment and honorable compromise.
I expect very few of ns can say when
our measure is perfected that all fea
tures are entirely as we would prefer.
“You know how much I deprecated
the incorporation into tl.e proposed
bill of the income tax feature. In a
matter of this kind, however, which
does not violato a fixed and recognized
democratic doctrine we are williug to
defer to the judgment of a majority of
our democratic brethren. I think
there is a general agreement that this
is the party duty. This is more pal
pably apparent tv hen we realize that
the business of our country timidly
stands and watches for the result of
our efforts to perfect tariff legislation ;
that a quick and certain turn of pros
perity waits upon a wise adjustment,
and that a confiding people still trust
in our hands their prosperity and well

At the suggestion of Chairman Cock

in tho opinion of the senators, to be

favorably, but as the main poin s are
perfectly preserved, then will be no
difficulty in tho conference, the

Hradstreet’s Report of Business for
Brudstreet’s report of trade for
tho past week says:
“I'he disappearance of the great
railway strike of 1804, the revival of
regular freight schedules and the cus
tomary movement of produce and mer*
chaudise by water and rail have done
much to restore something like tho ■
preceding volume of trade. Tho
encouraging statement is merely that
general business is only approaching
the usual midsummer proportions.

ton aud Wheeling, employes of Pull

more industrial employment within a
fortnight than at any previous date
since April Ist.
