Another Caucus of Democratic Sena,
tors Changes in the Bill as Passed
by the HouseProspects Favorable
to a Sugar Duty The Proposed
Tax on Coal May Be Stricken Off.
Washington, D. C, Pun. 27.
TIIE best ju.i3 anions Hih Demo
cratic senators fel weil con
vinced that an a(?reemnt til 1
be n-itciied very noon on the
questions etill at wins in the new tariff
bill. The bill in it! praatnt shape Una
iron ore. wool, lead in all loriiu. and
uncnt diamonds on the five list. Very
few. and not verv Important, changes
have been made from the free to the
dutiable list, except iu the owe of
sngar ami coal. Snar hat a
duty of one cent on raw and
li cents on rtined, as tne bill
stands now, and bituminous coal a
specitie doty of fifty cents a ton. The
prospects now seem entirely favorable
to the adoption of soni1 kind of a snicar
duty. Coal may, or may not take one.
A treat deal will depend on the de
mands of the iroc men. If they insist
on a duty the proposed duty on
coal may be stricken off, on the ground
that if both are nude dutiable there
wiil b no logical ground for refusing
to replace dntie9 all along the line.
The reason so many senators nr
ready to concede a duty to the coal
producers, while ru ing out iron or-,
. that the cost pro iu -t is so uniform
in its conditions as to make tb- duty
valuable alike to all producers. It) the
case of iron orj, however, tne condi
tions in Minnesota differ widely from
those in Pennsylvania, those in Penn
sylvania from those in Alabama, anl
in Alabama aain from tho" In West
Virginia and Kentucky. Hence the
various iron ore producers would raak
a doz-n different and irreconcilable dj
mands for duties, and no one duty
would equally satisfy any considerable
number of them.
Tne reason a duty on su?ar seems
likely is that the strongest tariff re
formers in thtientte favor it for ill
revenue feature, while the so-called
"conservative'' element like It be hub
it is a more or less efficient substitute
for the bounty.

Washington, Feb. 27.
ECIDEDLY th-- must racy chapter
iu the hii ky volume of Hawaiian
testimony is Lieutenant Lumen
Young's description ot the last
days of the monarchy. Lieutenant
Young was an ofiicer of the Boston,
and attended the cloning ceremonies of
the Hawaiian parliament iu full uni
form and in an official capacity. Lieu
tenant Young's description of the scone
is picturesque in the extreme. He
said :
"When 1 got there there was quite a
crowd around the rear end of the build
ing, and two ur three leading Ameri
cans, and Judge Hartwell, who was
one of the leading iatvyers of the place
end minister under Kalakaus. inform
ed me that the queen contemplated the
promulgation ot a new legislature im
mediately after the adjournment of the
legislature, and asked me if I would
not go on board ship and inform Cap
tain Wiltse. I went in to speak of it
to Consul lieii'-rsl Severance, and he
laughed mid said, 'I do not believe a
word of it.' I went iu and was shown
the seat assigned me iu the legislative
hall After waiting some little time
they commenced, and 1 believe it was
about the funniest aifuir I ever saw iu
my life- -a circus.
"The procession was headed by two or
three lackeys, and then followed the
governor of Oahu, fattier to the heirees
apparont, dressed ill a gaudy uniform
covered with gold and orders; the
chamberlain with attendant nil dressed
up, in uniform, and then came h-r ma
jesty, with a long train, and four lack
eys in kuee breechef currying the train,
and then the two royal princesses, la-dies-in

Very amusing scene. Afterwards the
proclamation was bapded to her in a
portfolio, when ehe stepped to the front
of the rostrum and begMi reading, first

Kanakas and every one w.-re decorated
with the various order of Kameha
meha I and Kalakaua, consisting of
great big stars stretched out on the
lireast. After the legislature was pro
rogued thr qiieeu passed into her recep
tion room.
"Did you follow her'.'' asked the
Lieutenant Young replied: "Yes; I
passed on through the door. The con
snl told me he was going back to the
ollice. 1 told him I Wasjthere in an of
ficial capacity, and felt I. it my duty to
go through with it."
Senator Gray -You wanted to ee tho

agely, and did not return .uy saluta
Witb any cordiality at all,
I noticed that she acted in
a peculiar way. First, when ahe
was reading her proclamation, 1 thought
she bad a little stage fright; out iu the
rec.'pilon room I saw that she was un
der the influence of a stimulant; In fact
she was drunk. There is no question
lu my mind about it at all. Then I out into tiie yard and started to
go over into the palace, and 1 was ad
vised not to go. Then I was told again
on the outside that as soon as the queen
came over to the palaoa she was going
to promulgate the new legislature. I
was also informed that at the palaos
the night, before there had been placed
lour or five pieces of artillery, enfilad
ing the approaches to the palace, and
that the queen's household was said to
ho under arms. I thought affairs
looked very serious, and that it was my
duty to go immediately on boar 1 the
ship and inform my Commanding offi
cer, Which 1 did. "
