y ri-unniscences, witnessed ft more
stirring spectacle tbaa that which tonic
place there today. The knowledge
that Senator Gorman was to take the
gauntlet thrown down by President
Cleveland, attracted to the ctpitol a
large part of the visitors and people of
leisure who take d 'light in the coni
Imts of political gladiators. Mr. Gor
man was in his best lighting trim,
Without a note or memorandum to re
fir to, or to refresh his memory, he
heid the floor "for nearly three hcure,
exhibiting powers of oratory which
few, even of his warmest political ad
mirers, would have given him credit
While unsparing in his attack on tho
president.be directed bis t fforts prin
cipally to sustaining the proposition
that the conference as fixed up by Sen
ators Jones, of Arkansas, and Vvst, of
Missouri, and as finally passed by the
snate, bad bnen admitted on SHveral
occ isions to the secretary of tho trea
sury nud tho president and had re
ceived the approval of both of them,
and that it was not until after the pub
lication of the Wilson letter that tbe
hostility of the president to the senute
Mil had beeu known or suspected.
Sir. Gorman's assertion on that point
were fully corroborated and with all
necessary detail by Senators Jones
and Vest, and also by Mr. Harris
(D: id., Tenn.), who related two inter
views which he bad with the presi
dent, the last of them while tbe bill
was in conference from which he had
come away with the distinct under
standing that the president was
strongly in favor of the bill as it passed
the senate, ' if no better terms could
be obtained,' Sonator White, of Cali
fornia, made a short 6peeoii in favor of
the motion to Insist on the senate
amentlmouts and to agree to furthtr
conference and then without action on
any of the pending motions, the senate
at 8 4!5 adjourned. '
THE BATTLE IN DETAIL.
Tho Ghnllcman from Maryland Starts
tha Cont.it Going.
Washington, July 23 Senator
Voorhees, at 12.22, calbd up the
conference report on the tariff bill,
and Senator Got man began speaking
on tbe subj ct. in an impressiye
manner tbe Maryland senator told of
closed factories and suffering maohun
its. and said furttier suspense wonld
be dextructiv. It would be detri
mental to the Democratic party, which
now controlled every branoli of the
government, and he hoped the sitna
tioti would be met as becam Ameri
can senators and as became p ttriotio
citiz-ns. He would say now, as he
would toll every Democratic sonator
privately, that no matter at what sac
rifice to state interests the paramount
duty of every Democrat was to keep
the party in power.
Mr. Gorman made reference to Presi
dent Cleveland's letter to Chairman
Wilson as the most unusual, the most
unwise letter ever penned by a presi
dent of the United States. On account of
this letter be was forced to talk of pri
vate party matters in public, The honor
of his fellows also made him make the
statement he would make. Telling of
the tariff bill conference, Mr. Gorman
suM every Democratic senator had been
consulted with a view to reconciling
their views. Two of the Democratic
leaders bad conferred with the presi
dent knowing that the bill would not
pass without tbe co-operation of the
executive branch of tbe government.
What the president bad said gave bim
right to make the statement, as he did
at tbe time that the senate bill would
rceive the endorsement of a Demo
cratic bonse and a Democratic presi
dent Tbe great secretary of the treasury,
himself a tariff reformer, who bad seen
ev. ry ameuiimeut that was proposed or
was to be proposed, knowing the con
dition that confronted bis party and
wanting to let the country know how
uiattors stood, publish"! n prepared
statement on April 30. 1804 Thl
statement was an interview with Mr.
Carlisle on tho bill, which he said that
the bill would be passed without difll
The president was not ignorant to
what the si-nato proposed to do. It
was known that In was not satisfied
with the measure. Tho samo could b
said of every Democratic senator, for a
compromise measure could not be satis
factory in every particular to every
body. It was beliavcd that every cttii
net ofTJcer, every Democratic sonator,
mid the president himself, were satis
fied with tho compromise bill as the
bust that conld b had. Mr. Gorman
called on Mr. Vest (Dem., Mo.), to
verify this broad statement.
Amid an intense silence Mr. Vest
somewhat hesitating arose and told
what he knew of the matter. Mr. Vest
said Secretary Carlisle had told him
that the greatest calamity that could
bappin to the Democratic party and to
the eountry would be the failure to
pass a tariff bill. Senator Jones had
seen the president and Secretary Car
lisle, and both bad told bim that tbe
bill us proponed to bo amended by the
adlitiou of the 409 joint amenJmeuts
would be perfectly satisfactory to
them, tho president concluding with
thpse worJs: "lam willinir to do or
say anything to puss this bill through
"I told Senator Jones," said Mr.
Vest, "that if wo won this fight we
must have the president behind u.i."
Mr. Jones amrel him that this was
a fact and ho (Mr. Vest) gave up his
personal views, and tor the first time,
when he heard of tbe president's letter
to Chairman Wilson, he learned that
the president was against them
Laughter and a p plain?.
CLEVELAND AS A TURN COAT.
Corroboration of Statem-nt That Ho Hud
.Approved tho Bill.
Washington, July 23. Mr. Jones, of
Arkausas, substantiated nil that Mr.
Vest had said and gave some more de
tails of his conferences with Secretary
Carlisle aud tho prusidnt. In a day
or two alter his confer.-nce with Mr.
Carlisle, Mr. Jones had called ou the
president and nsked him if the secre
tary of the treasury had explained to
him the changes. The president said
bo had. Mr. Jons bad then said:
"Mr. President: I will not take one
step further in this matter unless this
proposed com promise meets the ap
proval of the administration. It most
tie endorsed by you and the secretary of
the treasury or I will go no further."
The president bad then said to him
that ne wonld do aud soy anything be
could to eff.-ct the compromise; that it
was a wise thing and a proper thing to
Mr. Vilas asked Mr. Jones if there
was anything in the amondmeuts pro
posed, which was the sul'j-ict of con
ference with the secretary or to which
anything said by tha president related
to tbe subject of duty on coal or iron
"In every conversation I had with
the president," Mr. Jones promptly re
plied, "coal and iron or- were men
tioned." Loud applause In every
one of these conversation lim presi
dent said be earnestly desired and
hoped that in the progress of the com
promise, free coal and free iron ore
could le brotisdit out of it. Iiut no
where in no solitary word Was coal and
iron ore on tlin dutiable Hat complained
of. Renewed uppl iuse.
IlAHltlS COIUtOBORATES OOP.MAN.
Mr. Gorman called ou Mr. Harris
for an explanation of his understanding
of the president's policy. Mr, Harris
aid th.it ho had had a number of con
versations with the president on the
subject of the bill and its general nun
aument, and while he would not un
dertake to repro luce tbe language of
tho president in any one of these inter
views, he would say that he understood
most distinctly, as the result of each of
those interviews, that tbe president
was deeply and .earnestly interested in
having the bill passed with concussions
which the committee had consented to
make as a compromise motisure. Not
that it was satisfactory to the presi
dent any more than it was satisfactory
to himself, but because it was a great
improvement ou the existing law ou the
Atter the passage of the bill and
while it was before the conferees ho
had another interview with the presi
dent and be cams away with the dis
tinct understanding that tho president
desired that the bill as it pussod the
senate should be agreed to, if no better
terms could be made. Tha president
ba'l expressed to S-nator Jones und
himself the wish that soiui way conld
bo arranged to put coal and iron ore on
the free list; but he bad told tbe presi
dent tbat be feared that it was impos
sible to do so. And bis understanding
was, as tho result of that interview,
that tbe president was most distinctly
in favor of pusaing the bill as it pasod
the senate if no better tortus could bo
Mr. Gorman asked Mr. Harris
whether any suggestion had beeu
made to him by the president or from
any other quarter that the duty on
coal or on iron ore was a violation of
the Democratio principle and that
senators who voted for it bad been
guilty of perfidy. Mr. Harris replied
with great earnestness and strong em
phasis: "No such suggestion had ever been
made to me by the president or by any
cabinet officer or by any human being.''
GORMAN'S GORGE REVOLTS.
Be Cannot Longer SI; Quiet Under Praa
Washington, July 23. Senator Gor
man, resuming, insinuated that the
president was seeking to blacken the
character of senators. Men in high
places, suld Mr. Gorman, had sought to
blacken the character of senators.
These men were guilty of dishonor.
"The limit of endurance has been
reached." said he. "There is no power,
however groat the president, with all
bia patronage, that would keep me
silent longer." lie hurled this at
tbe president, be said, and nt those
wbo chirped as he talked, tbat their
insinuations were infamous. 11 was
destructive to the country that man of
high position should seek to bladcen
those who battled for their ritchts when
cowards in high plaoes dared not show
their beads Subdued npplsuse. Mr.
Gorman referred to the manner in
which Mr. Hill ha I rocoivel tho presi
dent's letter, and said: "What a God
send tho letter has b.-en to bim; it is
the only comfort h" has had out of the
administration." Great laughter.
Conference committees, ne ad',
should le kept freo from thn infl'iencs
of the president, with his !!t)0,000 up
pointmeuts. It was not his province
to interfero with the senate, and ho
(Gorman) was there to liudit presiden
tial usurpation, despite a thousand
hirelings who ora writing it down,
Mr. CUveland. said Mr. Gorman,
had been elected the first time by
the grace of God and a great deal of
hard work. Sketching the history of
the Ddituicratio party sines Mr. Cleve
land's first term, Mr. Gormnn said the
president, after his second nomination,
had conceded the rights of industries
to protection mid wisely agreed to re
model his views. Ha had aeon thn nil
vantages of free raw material and not
free ruw material. '1 sp'-ak oT the
president with nothing but th kindest
feelings." Subdued laughter.
Mr. Gorman complimented luo presi
dent for bis ability. He had stood by
Mr. Cleveland when fow had the moral
courage to walk through the slimj and
tilth aud uphold him. IIt"hnd stuck to
him from admiration of the man, but
he did it nbovo all to keep Democratic
control of this government. The pres
ident had no cause to complain of him.
4,I am not his debtor; lot him spenk for
liiius-ilf." lie was opposed to the nom
iim'ion of Mr. Cleveland in 1892 us a
matter of pirty policy, but he had ad
hered to lam, believing tbat he had
s-rved his party well. Mr. Cleveland
bad agreed that sugar was a taxable
artiele, and bad so informed Seuaror
liric?, Senator Smith and himself the
three men who had been acensed of
being owned by tbe sugar trust be
cause, they ha 1 tried to carry out the
pledge of their candidate.
"You can say, Mr. Chairman," said
Mr. Gorman, in conclusion, addressing
the couf;rence,"tbat in this body now,
wher-3 wo have only one majority
among the Democrats," tho great stats
of Ohio, tho stnt" cf Now Jersey the
state of New York, the state of
Louisianna und of Maryland step out
to tbe front and tell frankly in pub
lic what ought to have been told
only in private, and say that within
the liordors of tho states I have nam"d,
while they nnmber five or six, there is
more manufacturing industry than in
all the states which demand this radi
cal change. Say to them that at this
lime when tbe whole world is ablaze
with revolution in industrial af
fairs and want and distress are
felt, these senators, out of abund
ant caution, out of a superabund
ant caution, if yon please, have said
toyon they ennot--go- further; tbey
prefer to make mistake for too bigb
rates rather than to have them too low;
that it is wise statesmanship, true pa
triotism, to make tbe mistake and
mako tax too high and let the labor
ing peiple go to work ratbur to make
it too low and then try to keep them
all in order, too. with deputy inar
shuts and soldiers."
As Mr Gorman closed his peroration
('laving spoken for nearly three hours)
there was an outburst of applause and
hand-clapping on the fbor and in the
galleries, which tho presiding officer
did not even attempt to suppress.

ftecial to the Scranton Trtbun.
Caeuondale, July 23 Four young
men irom this city lutt their homes ou
Sunday and intended to spend the day
in pleasure at a resort called Mud
Pond, three miles from Carbondale.
The proprietor of the houje near the
poud had a Winchester rifle examining
it and the youug man, after a boat ride
on tbe water, were curiously watching
him, then nil bandied the gun.
Then there occurred an unusual and
thrilling evont; one of their number,
Patrick McDonnell, who was not more
than five feet away, fell dead with a
bullet in bis brain.
Coroner J. A. Kelly citne to this city
today to hold an inquest, and em
paneled the following jury: James F.
McAndrew, T. J. MoTlghe. W. J.
Meyer, H. J. Breanan, H. K. Vaughn
and J. E. Brennan, Tbe companions
of McDonnell, and the proprietor
of the boat at the pond wore
examined by the coroner and their tes
timony convinced the coroner that
tbey were holding something baek,and
not telling tbe truth. They all held
that McDonnell was killed while the
gun was being bandied among them.
What puzzled the coroner wus the fact
tbat tbs opeuing made by tbe bullet
was not a larger one, as the bullet
from the gun, in the coroner's opin
ion, would shatter the skull and the
mun's brains would o'ozs from the
He determined to continue the in
quest until 7 o'clock this tevening aud
iu tht meantime he made a post mortem
examination and found in the youug
man's brain a small pistol bullet.
When tbe inquest was reconvened
the doubt was dispelled by the confes
sion of James Campbell, 10 years old,
one of McDonnell's companions of
Sunday. Youug Campbell said that
the shot that killed McDonnell was
fired by him from a revolver. Camp
bell's father also testified that his son
admitted the shootiug, and said that
the sad uffair was accidental.
Tbe jury rendered a verdict tbat Pat
rick McDonnell came to his death from
a bullet wound in the head fired from a
revolver in the hands of James Camp
bell. Chief of Police McAndrew, of
Carbondale, took Campbell into cus
tody and lodged him in the Carbondale
station bouse. He wlU be committed
to the county jail tomorrow.

of the Rightleys, will be executed on
Thursday, is being put up today. It

of late aud be passes his time meditat

for tbe murder of tbe aged couple it was
thought that be had an accomplice
in the brutal act, but if his state
ments within the past fow days are to

cerning th killing and says he will die
without letting tho world know the de
tails of the horrible crime.
The execution will probably take
place before noon.
