TWO INTERESTING QCESTTCNS.
There were two very interesting
questions enzaging the attention of the
house today, one being a proposition
submitted by Mr. Burrows to substi
tute the wool clause "f the McKinley
law for that of the Wilson bill, Al
mas! Ut entire day was taken up iu a
discussion of the question and many
interesting and amusing speeches wre
made. The proposition was defeated
by a vote of 77 ayes to 151 noes. The
result wis a foregon conclusion, but
contrary to the opinions of some, it
was a strict party vota.
The second proposition was one sub
mitted by Tom L. Johaaon. of Ohio, a
large manufacturer of steel rails, put
ting steel rails on the free list. In the
course of the discussion which fol
lowed, Mr. Dalzell, Pennsylvania, made
some sensational charges as to Mr.
Johnson's business methois. The house
took a recess before disposing of the
matter, and tomorrow Mr. Dalzell will
conclude his remarks an 1 Mr. Johnson
will reply to his allegations.
OUTSPOKEN FOR FREE TRADE.

Mr. McKeighan ilnd., Xeb. ) came out

Speeches wore also made by Da For

members of tba majority about whose
position on the Wilson bill there was
some uncertainty. Hut though he bad

the features of the Wilson bill, notably
