S! mm T It Looks as Though a Compromise Kid at Last Been Effected. THE DUTY IS TO REMAIH Oil COAL But Iron Ore Will Be Admitted Free. Sugar Cuts No Figure in the Case. The Senate Provisions on Woolens and Cotton Goods Are Cut Into but Little The House Gives Way to the Senate in Nearly Every Instance. Washington, D C. Aug. 8. THE ''tomorrow" upon which the tariff conferees have been for weeks promising mi agreement at list gives promise of fulfill ment. When the tariff co lferees ad journed at a fow mtnut -s before. C o'clock tonight it was with tne under standing that, at the session tomorrow morning nil the details should be arrange I and the repub licans were called in, iu the afternoon, and informed of what their Democratic colleague had done. One of the most prominent managers on the part of the senate made the em phatic statement that tomorrow would see the edd of the conference, aud that by night there, would ha either an agreement or a general break op of the conference But one thing, ho said, could postpone the result any longer. Should the house conferees agree to an agreement, aud the agreement of the details consume such thu as to run the work over into the nest day, that would be permitted, but other wise the close of tomorrow wonll wit ness the end of the conferees on the tnriff Mil. So little is ret to be accom plished, however, that there is every likliliood that the Republicans can he called in at an eurly hour, and there would be no surprise if tho senate should have the report of the conferees at a reasonably early hour iu the after noon, IKON ORE TO BE FREE The bitch that still remains for set tlement is iron ore aud coal. So far us the principle is concerned, thesu items seem to he disposed of finally, one of them is to be free and the other made dutiable. These matters were the sulj.ct of three distinct changes to day. At 3 p. m. it was decided that iron ore should he made free abso lutely and that coal should retain the rate of 40 cents a ton fixed by the senate for a period of five years, at the end of which time it wus to be free. Subsequently a proposition was made to fix a sliding scale that should reiluce the duty a specific percentage each year. This was antagonized, but the honse men, anxious to gHin as much in the way of concession as possible, per sist d and the result was that this mutter was left until tomorrow morn ing for final decisiou. At the coneinsion of the confernee one of the malingers on the part of the senate said that if there was an m:r"tment the sugar schedule would Minin as it was published by the United Press Friday of last week, to wit, 40 per cent, on raw sugar, 40 per cent, on the raw sugar in the refined and one-fifth of a cent differential on refined augur. SUGAR CUTS NO FIGURE. As far, thn, ns sugar is coucornod. it has cut no fiunrrt in Die nnniurunna mid is looked upon by the conferrees as semen. Lead ore, about which there has been a great deal of quiet talk, is said to be in the same w iy. An tffirtwas made in some quarters to have the house rate, whicii greatly reduced tin duties, restored, hut thi man nnt As indicati d in these dispatches some uays agu, inn senate rale on tooacco will nrobablv stand, and whUlrv whinh was dif posed of by the conferrees some nays ago, win oe put uacsic to the one dollar a gallon provided for in the bouse bill, with the proviso, however, that tne bonded period may be extend ed frnlll flVH tn elrrllt-. vaiir htr thu tM.ir. n " j .w ment, after the end of five years of an additional tax of five eentn ner rrullnn per year. It is also understood that the senate provisions on woolens, cotton goods and the metal schedule have been cut into, hut little, compared witt the cuts npon which the house insisted, There urn innMf-.itinna Hint: tha rail. son the conferees did not finally settle coai nun iron tonight was that the sen ate members might have an onnortun ity or consulting with their colleague to see how the proposition submitted iu tmuerence was received.

A careful canvass or tne senate showed the sen ate conferees that they should nol touch coal without imperilling tb whole bill, while iron might bo tatn pere ' with without having any disss terons effect.
