HILL St'PrORTS CLEVELAND.
hie was followed iiy Mr. mil, or Jw
York, who prefaced a long speech with
a moiion that the senate recede from

partial approval to tbe president's !;.
ter and declared that Democratic sen
ators would have to rally around the
president or else they would go the
wall, while tbe president would come
to the front, and be added thai this
was the time to yield, before further
LuuiiliatioD, further embarrassment
and further discord.

the chief executive had not aided bis

debate was progressing in tho gannto
a course that would havtf lieon of prac

ators differed from tho provi
dent in the assumption that the
tax upon mgar is now necessary, ron-j

income tx is to be retained.

"In my i.piuinn the honse canrrotnow
honorably retreat from its position in

V1SST GKOWS SARCASTIC.
Mr. Vest addressed tbe senate. It
wns a matter of congratulation, lie
said, sarcastically, that the senator
frr.m New York and the president
were, at least, able to stand together
on any platform at all. A political
millenium seemed lo have come, nt
least iu a modified degree. Ths lion
mid tho lamb of New York had lain
down together, and the committee on
ways and inuans now led them. Which
was the lion and which tho lamb lie left
for future ascertainment.
The time bad come, he said, far
plain speaking in regard to this mat
ter. He, Mr. Vest, bad been a consist
ent friend of t do present oicupaut of
presidential chair. But the Democratic
party wns greater thau any man. It
had survived Jefferson, Madison and
Jackson, and it would outlive Grover
Cleveland, who did not embody all tbe
D mocracy aud all the tariff reform of
Mr. Gray, of Dalaware, moved to In
sist udou tbe senate amendments to the
tariff bill and to agree to a furthor con
ference. In the course of his speech he
declared himself more in favor of free
coal and fret iron ort than tbe senator
from New York had shown hlmsulf to
be. He said be bad been in favor of
free iron ore and free coal when the
senator from New York was placing
every obstacle in the pathway of
both. Mr. Gray, in the course of
a colloquy, declarod somewhat passion
ately that he "declined to take
instructions from a source Ilka that."
Mr. Aldriuh made an effort to draw
him out on tbe subject of the presi
dent's letter, but Mr. Gray doclined to
go into the matter and spoke of Mr.
Aldrieh waltzing with Mr. Hill in the
dance of the family feud. "By God's
blessing, 'lie concluded, "we will over
come the remuiuing obstacles that lii
in the pathway of the achievement to
which the Democratic party is pledged."
A motion was made by .Mr. Vilas, or
Wisconsin, to recede from tae dilleren
tial duty of one-sightb of a cent ou
sugar, and this motion provoked a long
discussion participated in by Souutors
Vilas. Sherman and Palmer, in sun-
port of the motion aud by tbe two
Louisiana seuutors Cillery iimi
liluochard against it. No vote was
taken on auy of tho propositions and
the senate, at 5110, udj lurued until
l'ROSY HOUS15 FltOCEEDlNCIS.
Very different from that of yesterday
was the scene in the house todav. The
galleries cout lined only such persons
as could uot gain admission to the sen
ate, while on tbe floor at least until
neur the hnur of the rece.Jp, were
scarcsly sufficient members to do busi
ness. The committee on the judiciary
called np and pissed eight bills. One
of them wms llepr sentatire W. A.
Stone's bill providing for consular iu
P!ctiou of eiuiurauts coming to the
United Statt-s at the port of departure,
and toe bill to prevsut interference by
United Status courts with to collec
tion of state taxes leviod against rail
road .corporations, notwithstanding
they are being oi'rated by receivers
appointed by the Uaitud Status cmrts.
While all but a handful of represent
atives were listening to the proceedings
in the senate, the Tucker joint resolu
tion providing for the election of
United Sthtts senators by direct vote
of the people was discussed for three
hours. Without action ou tho resolu
tion the homo at 5 20 o'clock took u re
cess until 8 o'clock lor the considera
tion of private pension bills.

USTICE WARU, of tho supreme

patient listener to the arguments of
the attorneys representing the two fac

place for hoidiug tho last convention
of tho grand lodge. The question us

grand lodge held in Detroit in 1S03,
wheu a resolution was adopted author-
zing tlie tiiiHtems to decide upon a

veniioii, or that of lb'91. 'i'be rosolntinn

whose hotel accommodation would be

upon Atlantic city as the place in

and as soon as this decision wus ruade
known ol-jeviions were raised by many
members or tn order wno liva at an

HISTORY OF THE SPLIT.
liie dissatisfied members apneaiod
from the decision of the trustees to
the grand ex tiled ruler, who is iuves
ted by the ootisutuUon of the order
with extraordinary powers, lie svm
pnthized with the dismtivfied officers
and members und overruled the :deci-
slon of tho trustees aud dosiuiiutud
Jamestown, N. Y.. us the place for
holding the convention of ltilH. This
action immediately precipituied a row
winch colmiuited when the time
came for holding the convention. Tne
trustees had many friends umong the
members of the order m well as the
lisgruntled E:ks nod adhered to their
resolution to bold the con volition iu
Atlantic Citv. It was impossible to
narmouizrt mo mueronces anil as a re
sult two conventions were held, one at
Atlantic iiv und u;e ut .laniestowii
and both of them elecled officers.
In order to conttol tho books and
moneys of tho grand lodge, tho James
town convention procured au iujuuc
tiou restraining the grand lodgo from
moeting elsswbera than in New York
state and thu Atlantio Citv factior
from interfering with tuo funds of the
order. The Atlantic City faction seeks
to hsva this injunction dissolved as on
the iauuo depends the legality of its
ses.ooti, and a motion to this effect was
aruusd before Justice Ward. Leroy An
drm, or tuis city, represented the At
lantic City faction and Hon. Arthur O.
Wade, of Jamestown, appeared for
Grand Exalted Huler William II. Ap
perly and the Jamestown faction. At
torney Wade basad bis argument npon
tiio provision in tnu resolution regard
nig the convenience of the place to be
desi-'iiaxed lor boning the convention,
while Attorney Andrns held that the
trustees bad acted in accordance with
their instructions nnd had done their
duty in designating Atlantic City as
the place Tor the annual meeting or the
grand lodge. Justice Ward will hand
down his decision in a day or two.
