ing the first half day ir. Hill, of New
York, was again tho central
figure of opposition to the finance
committee, and at one point he
almost succeeded in getting the
better ol tbe committee. When
the tariff bill H as laid before the senate,
the pending question being on the in
come tax provisions, Mr. Hill with
drew an amendment which he had of
fered before the adjournment on Sat
urday to stri?:o ont the exemption from
taxation of the incline of United States
bonds so exempted by the law of their
issuance, and Ire suggested to make tho
clause read "tho irhi.'ipa! and interest

'i t en Mr. Bill stated that the reason
wny he bad offered his amendment lust
Saturday (which he now admitted
should not be agreed to) was to call
the attention of the people to the
fact that aix hundred and thirty
five millions of property were
of this clause takon out of
the taxable property of the country.
He then offered an amendment to in
clude within the exemption the bonds
of state, county, municipality or towns,
and he made an argument in support
of that amendment
Mr. V"st argued against tho amend
ment and a number of senators on both
i-ides of the chain her took part in the

amendment. It was rejected yeas, 25 ,

paired with Republicans. Mr. Irby is
C ) voted with ids party.
Then Mr. Hill moved nn amendment
restricting the exemption of state
bonds (not county or municipal). Mr.
Hill also made an argument in sup
port of this amendment, and when he
had concluded, tbe argument In sup
port of his amendment was continued
by Sermtors Gray, (Del.); Pngh, (Ala.);
Csffirey, (La.); Hoar, (Mass.); Haw

Four Democratic lenators who had
been hitherto faithful to their party
ranged themselves on the side of Mr.
Hill. They wore Senators (Irsy,
Delaware; Morgan nnd 'ugh, Ala

Mr. Morgan, who would have voted
for Mr Hil I 'a amendment, was paired
with Mr. Quay (Pa,), who as a Repub

ao two votes in Its favor were lost. Be

Mr. Hill voted with his party, and tho
Populist senators also voted with tbe
Democrats, In this way Mr. Hill faileil
to get his amendment adopted, bnt In
came dangerously close to it.
Mr. McLaurin, of Mississippi, mov-d
to reconsider til" Votes whereby some
days ago, the salaries of the p: iib-nt

at harmonizing the Harrity nad Mc
Aloer forces in Philadelphia, he not
being allied with either side, will now
be rowarded by a restoration of har
mony such, so th leaders say, as will

been an ominous breach.

ians alike declare that the selection of
Mr. Slngerly is one of th9 mot diplo
matic political moves ever offict.ed In
