Interchange of Pleasantries Noth
ing of Conscquance Accomplished
in the House.
Washington, June 21.
SENATOR HILL'S attack upon
tho income tax was the chiof
feature of today's debate in the
senate. The senator, anions;
other things, presented a petition from
a number of prominent business men
of New York city asking that the in
come tax bo stricken from the tariff
bill, It was signed by Evan Thomas,
William Steinway, Louis Windmuller,
J. Edward Simmonds, S. D, Babcock,
W. Bayard Cutting. John II. Inman
and Alexander E. Orr. Senator Hill
I do not wish to drive such mon out of
tho Democratic party by our unwiso legis
lation in the hope of supplying their places
with Adullaraites, Coxeyltes, Socialists,
and all tho ragtag and bobtail elements of
the community who will be attracted to
us by our proposed raid upon the wealth
of the country. This is essentially a war
tax. Heretofore, we, as Democrats, have
clamored agaiust it and others like it.
If this is true Democracy I want none
of it. If this is tho best leadership
which we can present in this groat
crisis, I for one must decline to follow
it. I prefer to stand with Jefferson, and
Jackson, and Tilden, in opposition to nil
income taxes and direct Federal taxation,
hut in favor of a revenue for federal pur
noses and direct taxation for state purposes,
I repudiate the spurious' Democracy of
these mudern apostles and prophets, who
are part mugwump, part Populist, and
the least part Democratic, who seek to load
us astray after false gods, false theories,
and false methods. I object to our re
storing a war tax which tho Republicans
themselves rejected years ago, with our
approbation. I cannot follow such lead
ership, which shifts and turns and tompor
izes upon every public question, which
compromises every well-established Dem
ocratic principle for which the party con
tended when out of power: which stands
ready to adopt eveiy passing "ism" of tho
hour, which surrenders principle for ex
pediency, and pursues no consistent course
rroni year to another. If politiesl success
of my party is only to be purchased by
such methods and sacrifices, 1 prefer de
feat and ties preservation of my self-ro-spect.
It was well understood that senators in
tended to vote on the incomo tax section,
not according to their convictions, hut ac
cording to the decree of a party caucus.
He trusted that such a hnmiliating spec
tacle would not be witnessed. It was not
even bousted by some that the Income tax
was the best feature of the tariff bill. It
that was so then ho could only sny, in the
emphatic language of the senator from
New Jersey (.Mr. .Smith), "Uod help tho
ANOTHER VOLLEY OF I1ILLINOSGATK.
Mr. Higgins, Delaware, followed
with a speech agaiust the income tax
sectieu. Mr. Chandler, New Hamp
shire, renewed the controversy between
himself and Mr. Allon, Nebraska, say
ing that he regretted that he had dis
covered that the surroundings of the
senutor from Nebraska boforehe enter
ed tho senate were such as not to allow
him to observe courtesies which all
gentlemen regarded oven in the mo?t
heated partisan debate. The senator
from Nebraska, he added scornfully,
was to be pitied, not censured, for that
which he could not help.
Mr. Allon replied quietly but bitter
ly to Mr. Chandler's remarks. Any
statement that he (Mr. Allen) had
agreed to vote for the bill, in conse
quence of nny concessions made, or to
be made, to him, was untrue. Ho bad
said so yesterday, and he reiterated it
today. He would stand by tho bill "in
spite of the low dirty insinuations" of
the senator from Now Hampshire or
any other man. The controversy
wound np by a declaration of Mr.
Chandler that the closing remarks of
the senator from Nebraska only em
phasized his statement that the senator
did not comprehend the courtesies
which should character;. debate in
The senate prooeeded to net on
amendments to this suction of the bill.
The first amendment was offered by
Mr. Aldricb, Khode Island, to havo the
tax trininate on Jan. 1, 1898 (instead
of 1800) rind that amendment was de
feated : Yeas 32, nays 80, The threo
Populist senators, Allen, Kyle and
Peffer, and two Republicans, Dubois
and Teller voted with the Democrats
against, the amendment, and tho termi
nal point was fixed at 1900. There was
no further progress made on the in
como tax sections.
