THE LAST STRUGGLE.
The Republican Senators Believed to the
Last That Tariff Would he Defeated.
Washington, July 4.—lt was no se
cret among those who had the confi
dence of the leaders of the republican
side that they expected to defeat the
tariff bill and that they figured on a
majority of one vote against it. The
first break on the democratic side came
when the name of Caffery- was called
and he responded with an emphatic
“no.” His colleague. Blanchard, did
not respond to his name at all when it
was called. Irby.it was claimed, had
promised to vote against the bill, but
when his name was called, he respond
ed in the affirmative, and all hopj of
defeating the bill vanished. Caffery
then after a brief explanation and a
protest against the way his people had
been treated, changed his vote to one in
favor of the bill and Blanchard voted
in the same way. Had Irby stood by
the combination, the two Louisiana
senators would have remained firm and
the vote would have been 37 to 36
against the bill.

ABOUT THE STRIKE.
How it Is Affecting Atlanta and
BUSINESS IS CRIPPLED.
Kailroad Men Being Hurried to

. Expects No Trouble.
While the gr eat strike of the North
and West does not reach Atlanta di
rectly, yet it seriously affects travel
The fruit crop of Georgia
and other Southern and South
Atlantic states is not being
handled by the railroads for Western
points. They fear that the fruit, mel
ons and vegetables would be tied up on
the road by reason of the strikes.
No Pulman tickets are being sold to
Western and Northwestern points, and
in some eases the sleepers have been
taken off the roads.
The passenger service on every road
going West is being seriously effected,
and the roads are losing much money,
A talk with the officials of the roads
centering in Atlanta, goes to show that
they anticipate no local trouble. How
ever. they do not feel any too secure.
Inducements are being offered rail
road men to go to Cincinnati and Chi
cago. Quite a number left Atlanta
Monday evening, and others again on
Tuesday. Quite a large party are ex
pected to leave Atlanta this evening.
Some men are being sent forward who
have had absolutely no experience.
There is a general feeling of unrest
about all of the railroad offices, and no
one seems to feel sure what the out
come will be.

PUBLIC SCHOOL MONEY.
The Payment Is Delayed —Will
the Teachers Get It?
The last legislature qpssed a bill pro
viding for the quarterly payment of
tne public school teachers of the state.
On the Ist of April the first pay ment
was duly made.
But now there is trouble.
The state school commissioner has just
issued a circular in which he explains
the matter to the county school offi
The bill as it passed the last legisla
ture. provided that on the first of April,
if the public school funds in the treas
ury were not sufficient to meet the de
mands from the several counties, un
available funds in the State treasury
might be drawn upon. This was done
on April first.
To the credit of the common schools
now appear about 5150,000, but the
money borrowed the Ist of Apr,! has
not been returned. Now, the question
is, must this money be returned from
the money which appears to the credit
of the common schools before the next
apportionment to the different coun
ties is made? If so, the teacherswill
get no pay for the quarter just closed.
Os course this matter doos not affect

TAMMANYITES IN CONFERENCE.
Gilroy, Martin. Fellows and Clark Alarmed
Over Police Matters.
New York. July- 4.—A very import
ant conference was held yesterday- af
ternoon in the corporation counsel's
office, at which Mayor Gilroy. James J.
Martin, president of the police board;
District Attorney- Fellows and corpora
tion counsel clerk were present. The
subject under discussion was the inves
tigation of the police department as or
dered by the commissioners on Friday.
The Tammany leaders were anxious
to map out a plan of campaign for the
conduct of the socalled investigation.
The conferrees were alarmed lest Su
perintendent Byrnes would prefer
charges against officers accused before
the Lexow Committee and that upon
trial would not result in “vindication”
but would end in their conviction, that
they decided that Assistant District At
torney Wellman would assume the role
of prosecutor and take care of Tam
many's end of the investigation.
It was rumored at the conference that
Superintendent Byrnes refuses to pre
fer ' fake'’ charges that will result in
whitewashing any one. and this com
ing to the ears of the Tammany leaders
a conference was called.

THE MAJORITY IS FIVE.
The Tariff Bill to be Returned.
AVill the House Have the
Backbone to Remodel?
Washington, July 4.—The tariff bill
passed by five majority. The vote was
39 to 34. Senators Allen and Kyle
voted yea. Senator Hill voted no. Sena
tors Peffer and Stewart, populists, voted
no. The Senate adjourned until Fri
The Senate met at to a. m. in continu
ation of Monday's legislative session by
virtue of the recess taken that night.
That obviated all the delays incident to
the formalities of a regular opening of
a new day. The tariff bill was taken
up at once and action on the amend
ments of the committee of the whole
occupied the whole of the day's session.
First came the motion made by Senator
Mills Monday evening to place burlaps
and grain bags made therefrom on the
free list. It was carried by a vote of 28
to 17. Next came the famous “collars
and cuffs' amendment, fixing the duty
on those articles at 30 cents per dozen
and 30 per cent, ad valorem, and on
shirts at 50 per cent, equivalent, accord
ing to a statement made by Senator
Chandler, to an ad valorem rate of from
80 to 125 per cent. That amendment
was agreed to bv a vote of 43 to 5.
Solid Democracy On Wool.
Then the great wool schedule came up
for action, Senator Sherman offering
an amendment to place wool on the
dutiable list at .".0 per cent ad valorem.
The longest discussion of the day took
place on this proposition —appeals be
ing made by republican senators to
democratic senators from the wool pro
ducing states to supply even two votes
for the amendment, which would be
enough with the populist votes, to carry
it. But these appeals fell on deaf ears.
There was not a single dissension from
the democratic ranks on the question

bituminous coal on the dutiable list at

Frcsident’H Salary Not Exempted.
The committee amendment which had
been originally offered by Mr. Hill ex
empting the salaries of the president of

I nited States, from income tax was re
jected after a brief struggle, by a vote
of--yeas 34: nays 30 —ten democrats
ha ving voted for it and six republicans
and three populists against.
All the other reserved amendments up
to the close of the bill were agreed to—
The date when the bill is to go into
effect was, on motion of Mr. Jones,
fixed at August 1, 1894 —with the under
standing that if necessary a later date
can be. fixed hereafter.
Barbed wire was a subject of some
dispute. An amendment had been
agreed to in the committee of the whole,
that barbed wire for fencing should be
admitted free of duty. This amend
ment was rejected : and one offered by
Mr. Allen, populist of Nebraska, to
place “wire for fencing” on the free list
was also rejected—yeas 32 : nays 38.
And so wire remains on the dutiable
list, at rates according to guage. Mica
was taken off the free list and put on
the dutiable list at 20 per cent, ad valo
rem, upon motion of Mr. Ransom.
Mica Made Dutiable.
Mr. Ransom's amendment prevailed
by a vote of—yeas 40 ; nays 28. Mr.
Morgan offered an amendment to come
in as five additional sections at the end ‘
of the bill, aimed at the trust, combina
tions and conspinices in restraint of
trade and commerce, or to increase the
market price of imported articles. He
made a speech in explanation and de
