SENATORS TALK
ANGRY TONE
Another Caucus on the Tariff Warfare
Brlugs Out Some Su&esilve Truths.
SENATOR SMITH'S LS09 WABXSSG
Unless the Protective Features of the
Senate Elll Are Retained He In-
forms His Colleagues That the
Measure Will Nev? r Become a Law.
The Louisiana Senators Repeat
Their Demand for a Favorable
Sugar Schedule.
Washington. Jniy 25
P the action of today s D-.-inocratle
caucus is obeyed tomorrow will
witness uu end of the debate on
the conference report of the tariff
lii II and that measure will go back to
the conference without instruction.
After u debute lasting over threo hours
yestorduy and upwards of that tiuio to
day Mr. Jan-is' resolution that the bill
b sent buck without instructions was
agreed to by nunuiuiona consent, al
though at no tiuio did Mr. Vilas give
the assurance to the caucus that he
would not press a measure to strike
out the differential duty on refined
sugar.
Mr. Vilas said he was in favor of
working out this differential because
he believed by so ciomr much of the
opposition that was manifested ngainst
tue bill would be removed and the
way would be paved for 1 be adjust
ment of the difference between the
two houses. With this duty which he
said was the chief bona of cnuteuti m,
out of the way there could be nothing
to interfere with u speedy settlement
of all tho troubles and tne early pas
su: of the bill an 1 the approval cf the
president. For that reason Mr. Vilas
said it was his intention to press the
motion und cause it to prevail if
possible.
THE SUGAR SCHEDULE.
Mr. Caff-ry and Mr. Blar.cbard said
they would iuidst that tliov be given
the 40 per ceut. on raw sugar, the of
n ceut differential ou refined, which
benefited their people as much as it did
the refiners, and lh.it the bounty for
1891 should be paid the growers of
uur in this country and the treaty
with Hawaii abrogatad. TJaless this
Whs done they served notice on the
caucus that they would vota against
the till
Mr. Smith, of New Jersey, warned
Mr. Vilas that be was trifling with a
weighty subject when be. talked of
changing the bill which had been the
result of eo much hard work in the
senate and which bad only psst d by a
very siiui majority of one vote. Mr.
Smith add thai a number of senators
who had been opposed to tho incjtne
tax had been induced to vote
for the bill because, the. sohedulea
relating to , the industries of
the treat states they represented bad
b en arranged so their ebons would
not be compelled to shut np or their
worKuien thrown out of employment.
Any attempt to cbungo tbU sugar
schedule or any other schedule striking
at the salient points of the bill would,
Mr. Smith said, be hailed wito satis
faction by those who had bolted the
income tax, because they were verv
sick of their bargain and would jump
at anything that would release them
Irani it. Mr. Smith also said that it
was u very serious mutter whether the
bill could evT be got back to confer
ence , so narrow was the Democratic
majority. f

Two Warship- Aro O.dered to the Scene
of Hostilities.
Washington. July 25. Secretary
Herbert lias prepared orders for the
Petr-1 and Concord, now on duty with
thu Behring Sea patrol iljet, to proceed
immediately to the Clnnose station.
This rction has bean taken because of
tho threatening aspect of affairs iu
Korea mi l the lulniuiislration's desire
to see that American interests have full
protection,
lhe interests of tho United States m
that section of the globe are much
more important than is generally sup
posed. In ndditiou to the great tea
trauo with Chun, thero plys regularly

aud China otio of the very few lines of
steamers iu the foreign trade that sail
utider tu American &. It is felt
that our xiting trade relations may
be pnralyz -d by a war Starting iu Korea
mul involving Cnina and Japan. The
United States will not at present, hw
ever, if at all, unite with any foreign
power in making demand on China or
Japan or Korea. It is felt to bo incon
sistent with our established policy to
do so.
JAPANESE MINISTER'S VIEWS.
Tho Japanese niinistar this afternoon
had received no further advioes in r-
gard to the tiling by Korean forces (in
stigated as wns alleged by the Chinese
representative) on the Japanese forces
now encamped in S:onl, the capital of
Korea. He therefore was inclined to
tielieve that the incident would not
bring about serious results A ti offi
cial of the legation said: "Iu the event
of a war t.etweeu Japan and China,
the ports in China and in
Korea where the United States
and European powers have re
ceived certain concessions by treaties,
would unquestionably be respected,
and left outside of the limits of hostili
ties." He concluded by saying: "Japan
has made three distinct proposals to
China for the settlement by arbitra
tion of this matter. She has done
everything possible that a salf-repp.-ct-
Ing nation consistent with honor, could
do. Every proposition that has been
mads to China has been ignored, and it
is clearly apparent that China is urg
ing the Koreans on,"

CLEVELAND'S ORS DAY CF REST
The Only Incident of the Day Was Oc
casioned by Senator Quay, Who
Slyly Moved to Put Sugar on the
Free List, Thus Throwing What
May Develop Into a Firebrand Into
the Enemy's Camp Quiet Day,
Also, in the House.
Washington, July 25.
TIIE crowd was disappointed at to
day's senatorial debate on the
question of agreeing to the re
ii nest of the house of representa
tives lor further conference oi tho
tariff bill. It was not ot bo exciting
or interesting character as wus tho d. -bute
on the iirnl three days, and there
was uot u ii allusion made except a
vary rtuioto one, to the president's
famous letter to Mr. Wilson. There
wre three speeches, tho longest by Sen
ator Ciiilery.of Louiaiaua.and t wo short
ones by Senators D iviiela and IIunton,of
Virginia. Mr. Caffery's speech was in
advocacy of his motion to have a modi-
had fuar bounty paid for lb'Jl aud in
favor of a fair revenue duty on sugar.
Failiug ia getting such protection from
thu bugur iuterest of Louisiana, Mr.
Ciiffery d"dared, "more in sorrow than
iu anger," that himself anJ his col
league would be forced to antagonize
the bill und to part tho ties which now
bound them to the Democratic p'irty.
The speeches of Seuators Daniel
and Uuuton were called out by a desire
to correct au error iu the report of Mr.
Gorman's speech of Monday hut.
which represeuted them, with senators
lrom lour or live other states, as being
so inimical to the house bill that they
would have voted agaiust it. Mr. Dan
iel declared that he had named no con
ditions to command his vote aud that,
whether tho bill ns it would
lie finally fix -d In conference suited
him or uot, it would have bis support.
Mr. Hunton expressed himself in
favor of the propj.-ed duty of 40 cents
a tou on coal uud iron ore and of 40
per cent, ad valorem on sugar as fair
revenue duties and hoped that there
was patriotism enough in the Demo
crats of both houses "to give und
take.
BKNATOn QUAY'S MOTION.
A motion was mad by Mr. Q nv so
to amend the motions of bjuatur v il is
and Gray as to put sugar ou the free

eration ot executive business, aud. a

Iu the house Chuirmau Martin suc
ceeded in huving passed three pension
bills of u general nature. Iheso were
