Indications TLat Much More Talk Will Be
Heard on Tariff Bill.
Senators from That State Who Are
Opposed to the Sugar Schedule
Likely to Make Trouble Republi
cans Will Indulge In Fillibustering,
It Is Prophesied Conservative Dem
ocrats Condemn the Deadlock Un
easiness Among House Democrats.
Washington, D, C. Aug. 5.
THE present work will probably
seal the fate of the tariff hill.
'The Democratic inrabrs of tha
conference committee met in tin
informal way today and again went over
th-s Mil. ugreeiug here und thereto ten
tative changes in the hope that they
conlj hasten a conelu-iion. Tue sen
atorial contingent of the conference
Weie unable to assure their colleaKties
of the house that the new sujf'r
schedule would be acceptable to the
senate and secure the forty-three votes
nececsary. The discussion In confer
y ence toJBy, however, indicated that all
partien recognized the necessity of
making nn early report of some kind.
The senate conferees decline to iudi-
citte what the nature of that report
will be, but one of th- in stated posi
tlvely that there would Ira a conclusion
reached not later than Wednesday
nnd possibly by Monday. II inade
the statement that there could be no
compromise on coil and iron, and if
the houne conferee) insisted upoa the
bouse bill on th-. se items there would
- oon be a disagreeing report The
bouse men still demand some conces
sion on tht-ie items.
The parliamentary status of the bill
is Kiviug its managers some uneasi
ness. The bill in not in the possession
of the senate. The house can take no
aetion on the meaeure until after the
6ennte has acted and it is the possible
result in the senate that causes the un
eaxini ss that has been m mi ft at. Suae
conservative Democrats in the hous
who Dave here: of ore upheld the house
bill are now condemning the deadlock.
Could these men get a chance to vote
on the bill it is bebieved tboy would
override the conferees and haston the
end of the Btruifgle.
Whttt'-Tfr-Tniybtr -fhir "ronclu9lon
reached by the conferees, the report
muet first go to the senate and the
tariff bill cannot be acted upon in the
- house until that body bus before it the
original bill aud the conference papers.
How lono; it will take thru docuuieuts
to get back to the house after the nut
ter is aaiii opened iu the senate no
political nugur can forutell. A
disagreeing or an agreeing report
is hound to renew the whole
field of debate. The woolen, metal
and cotton schedules are said to be as
difficult of solution as the other three
schedules around which so mnch polit
ical Importance clings, Mr, Smith and
Mr. Murphy have resisted from the
iirat any serious encroachment npon
the woolen and cotton scheduler, while,
it is said, the retention of the iron and
. metal schedule intact is the price
of the silence of certain Repub
licans who, should these be re
duced, will at once resume dilatory
tactics and insist ripon talking the con
ference report to dvath.
The situation iri the committee of
conference may be summed up.
The home insists upon some material
concession on coal and iron ore; the
senate refuses absolutely to tive mora
thHti reciprocity on coal. Mr. Gorman
will not listen to any proposition look
ing to a graduated duty on these raw
materials, or that the duty be left us
is is with the proviso that it shall ex-pin-
in three years and iron ore and bo then tranaferrel to the free
list. The bonse conferees will agree
to the sugar schedule recently mad
public, ou the one-fifth b,.sU and the
sugar senators, so called, have ac
cepted it.
Louisiana senators and Messrs. Allen
and Kyle will not support it, and these
four vot.s, togetber with those of Mr.
Hill and probably Mr. Irby, would de
feat the bill. With the sugar schedule
ns it is now the senate was able to pass
the bill only by a very small margin,
and that too as it is claimed, in tha ha
lief on the part of Louisiana senators
ttiat the bounty was to be given them
in conference. This bounty having
. been refused it is problematical if tha
Democrats could get the bill tbrongh
again, if not it will be chunked. The
managers on the part of the senate
recognize that the deilemma in which
they hud thmlvs and naturally
drew the oontest that must come.
In addition to this it was understood
yesterday that at least fifteen Itepubli
cans bad bound themselves by a tacit
agrei men t that when the conference
report again came into the senate they
would use every means in their power
to prevent the bill from ever Betting
off the vice-president a table. This, of

Affairs in the Populist Hotbed as
Viewed by an Associate Justice
of the Supreme Court.
Topeka, Kan.,Auz. 5 The RepulH
eta state central committee nan sprung
the political sensation of the campaign.
It is a letter written by Associate Jus
tice St-phen H. Allen, of the supreme
court to Lieuteuant Governor Percy
Daniels, bearlug date of May ID, just
bhfore the Ponulist State convention.
Tho letter sayt:
Itsetmsto be Generally conceded that
the drift of santimnt is all in favor of the
re-nomination of Govornor Lewelling and
that of the other state ofliaers. You know
there has beau much talk about the ad
ministration of affairs in the largwr cities.
Within tiie past few days I have lenr.ied.
not from the enemies but from tho fr.etxls
of tho administration, of circumstances
showing that tho administration of affairs
in some if not all cities of the first class
is thoroughly corrupt, and that to the
knowledge at least ot the governor I have
also been told of circumstances which
tended very strougly to indicate that tuis
condi tion of affairs meets with his (auction.
I cannot by lo;t-r undertake to put to
gether the variuus things that I have
learned without going out of my way
to do so, nor do I wish at present to name
my authorities.
In fact, I vury much prefer cot to place
myself in the attitude of tho accuser of
anyb idy. and what I wish to suggest to
you, and wish all people could know, is
that very serious charges are now made
and that during the campaigu we Bhall
unquestionably have them to lace. It is an
open secret that the prohibitory law has
not bviL enforced in the Urger cities. You
know I am not, to draw it mildly, a Pro
hibition crank, yet it is very easy for me
to see how readily corrupt practices be
come associated with systematic disre
gard aud violation of law. Our opponents
in the campaign can start out
with the clear aud admitted propo
sition that the prohibitory law has beeu
generally disregarded in the lur.'or citios.
1 tear also that they can easily show sys
tematic Doodling by the police dopartmont

can possibly carry without having to meet
charges of corruption.

During tho Seventh Inning nt the
Base Ball Game, Fire Is Discovered
In a Portion of the Grand Stand.
Hundreds of Spectators Rush to
the Spot and Aro Suddenly Sur
rounded by Flames Many Injured
by Trying to Break the Wiro Fence.
Chicago, Aug, 5.
TIME was called in the seventh
inning of the Chicago-Cincinnati
base ball game this after
noon at the West Side park by
th" cry of tire, followed by scanes never
before wituessed at a sporting evant in
this city. Curiosity to see tho tire led
more that 1,000 spectators to rush into
danger and in their frantic efforts to
extricate themselves from their peril
ous positions they became pauic
atrickun. Tbey found themselves hemmed in
by tire on one side and u high barbed
wire fence ou the other, erected to kep
the people from encroaching on the
iiuniotid. iho exits were few and small,
and although otliar means of escaps
wore provided by the quick action of
players Ryan and Wilmot of the looal
team, and President Hart, the imperiled
and fear crazed crowd backed ugaiust
the barbed wire fencing. Their mad
null to get awav from the advancing
11 ms resulted iu the injury of scores.
Anson was showing the visitiors how
to hit the hull in tho seventh iutilug
when a red light begtin to flash and
rise along the side stand, where the 5i).
cout spectators sit. There were 1. 000
ot thorn in the seats and U.UUil wit
nessod the game altogether.
The breaking out of the fire caused a
general rush of the people in that part
of the grounds to the top of the stand
to look at the tl lines. In a tew min
utes they realized the danger of their
position and broke for the nar
row exits, which had already filled
with smoke. The spectators who
were in tin grand stand and on the
bleachers were at a safe distance from
the fire and got away into the field
without any mishap. The woodwork
of the stand ubd the piles of paper ami
other rubbish thrown around provided
fuel for the llames, which gained on
the imprisoned men aud women before
they knew it.
All was confusion in nn instant
among ;the occupants of the flaming
woodau structure. Women ecre m"d
in their fright aud men got jamm d
against the sharp fences. The exits
might us well not have been thjre. Hand,
facts, limbs and clothing were cut and
torn by the scrambling mass of
humanity in trying to force a pus-
sage tliroiicn the wire strand
or over them. The fence would
not give way, but Ryan and Wiiinot
made a gap in it by using their bats
like blnckt-miths. lluu u-'ils escaped
that way. Five minutes after the last
spectator had got out of reach of tho
fl ttues every seat was being consumed.
Iho grounds will be used tomorrow by
fencing off the burned portion.

not do this, they offered him all man
ner of bribes, ranging from $1 to $1,000

General Kabis said:
"Anxious to learn all I could, I ap
proached a rather intelligent China
man, saying. "Why is it that I cau only
get such n small amount for these
certificates?" In my addressing him
thus, 1 led him to believe that there
was nothing wrong in it. He finally
told in-' that the certificate were worth
from $''5 to $300 apiece, and as most of
theso Cniuamen were over in
British Columbia I should say
to the Chinumea who wnntud the
certificates that if - thv di4 not
oilei; mo more money I would (end
them to Gun v ab, at Portland, who
would pay a largo price for them, lie

that he was making a good deal ot
money out of it."

regarding tao immigration laws.

inquiries to Governor Pattison and
Secretary of Internal Affairs Thomas
J. btewart has prepared uns'.vers to
them. Secretary Stewart snya: "It
would seem that the immigration laws
as now constituted permit the entrance
of a most undesirable class, who inter
fere greatly with the intelligent labor
ing class ot this country.
"Wa believe that the nurest among
the laboriug olass is largely due to the
influx of uudesirabie labor.
'Wa would not recommend the dis
tribution of immigrants to points at
which labor is iu demand. Our pres
ent facilities are adi quitto for trans
porting our own wage earners in' suf
ficient number to meet the demand
' Iroui nn official standpoint there is
no means of determining now whether
the padrone or contract system exists
umong the immigrants who annually
oomo to this country. The closo ob
server, however, must be convinced
that it does exist, and is a menace to
American institutions.
"There should be an examination
and insp2etiou of every person who
desires to immigrate here. This ex
amination should be made by United
States officials on the other side of lhe
water and should hava reference to bis
condition of health, financial circum
stances, ability to be self supporting,
degree of intelligence, etc.
it snouid be made a grave offense
for any. firm, corporation or person to
