Democratic Senators Indulge in Vain Regrets
Over Tariff Fizzle,
Mr. Vest Turns the Calcium Light
Upon Tariff History and Advances
Opinion That the Senate Can Never
Be Democratic Mr. Vilas and Mr,
Mills Moralize on What Might Have
Been A Bill That Satisfies No One.
Washington, Aug. 15.
THE house bill to phot sugar on
the tree list wns taken op in the
denote early in today's proceed
ings and orenpied attention np
to the time of adjournment. In con
nection with it a communication was
rend to the senate from Secretary Car
lisle to Senator Hurris (Dnx, Tenn),
noting chairman of the finance commit
tee, givinjr figures to show that with
sugar on the froe list there would b-1
n tr-asnrv deficit of from $23,000,000 to
$30 000.000. Despite that communi
cation a motion was made by Mr.
Berry, (Dom., Ark.), that the senate
proceed to the consideration of the
bill; end that motion was antagonized
by one offered by Mr. Harris that the
bill be referred to the committee oti
finance. Mr. Harris made an argnmnt
in support of his iutioo. Speeches
agaiust ft reference and in favor of the
passage of the hou'i hill were mad by
Senators Berry, Wst, (Dein., Mo.),
Mills, (Dcm., 'is).
Mr. Vst's speech wns made in the
elocution of his promise to tnrn the
calcium light on the history of the bill
in the finance committee. In his speech
Mr. Vest declared that the president
had said, before bis letter to Mr. Wil
son was sent, that he would support
the bill that passed. As it was now,
bis letter to Mr. Wilson ww a good
campaign docuweut for the Republi
Mr. Vest said the senate conforrees
bad aid that they might have either
free coal or f:eo Iron or. But the dif
ficulty was thut the honsa conterroes
could not be i.' to understand that
tho senate conferred knew more about
the condition of tff.iirs in the senate
than they did. Ho declared with much
emphasis that the senate wns not n
D -inocrxtic senate on the question of
tariff reform; never wns and never
wmild be, is at present constituted.
He was tired of evasion, suspicion
and lying and be wanted the truth to
be known. He spoke of the newspaper
suggestions that he was actuated by a
feeling of revenge against the president
bccuuno be had ignored him in regwd to
patronage in Missouri, He bad no
private grief against the president, but
he wished to acknowledge his gratitude
to him for having relieved him from
all appointments. He was ready to
follow the president as the old Scott
followed the banner of the Bruce.
Mr Vilas (Dm., Wis ) replied to
Mr. Vest's statement as to the action
of the Democratic caucus when the
senate bill was first reported to it on
the 20:h of Marc i. That bill, Mr.
Vilas declared, was a justifiable bill in
its general features. But the caucus
then voted for free iron and the finance
committee has not carried out that
vote. It bad acted on the general be
best to prepare a bill that could com
mand a majority of the votes in the
senate and had reported a duty on iron
ore as well as on coal.
Mr. Vilas left that point and applied
himself to a defense of the president
Against the animadversions of Mr. Vest.
He assured that senator that the presi
dent allusion to party perfidy had bad
no reference to him; and he expressed
his regret that that senator should
think that he could be accused of party
perfidy or party dishonor he who had
been so honestly and zealously laboring
to bring about the result of the passage
of a tariff bill.
Mr. Vilas said that the Democratic
party had lost suoh an opportunity as
was rarely, in the providence of God,
offered to political parlies. And while
he lamented it, and would nor attempt
to conceal his regret that it had not
done more, he by no means undertook
to say that it had not done much,
Mr. Mills (D m., Tex ) characterized
the tariff bill as now passed, as a re-
tnarKHiiie measure, one which did not
reflect the sentiment of a thousand per
sons in the Unite 1 States. He was not
amiss in saying that not a Republican
lavorea it; that not a Fopolist favored
it; and he would not be far from the
trnth in saying that the great mass of
the Democratic partv condemned it. It
whs the product of five or six senators.
But they had been between the devil
and the deep sea and they had gone to
the sea rather than go to the devil.
He had no apologias to maks for it,
because it was better than the McKin
ley law and whs the best that they
oonld do under the circumstances, lie
did not accept it, however, as a final
settlement of the question of tariff re
form. But it was a step, a substantial
step, in the policy of putting on the
free list articles that enter into manu
factures. He now favored the bouse
bill to put sugar on the free list and be
would nave it considered and passed
now, and not have it referred to the fi
nance committee.
Twenty-sixth Annual .Convention in

York, Pa., Ann. 15. The twenty

Columbus, O, Aug. 15. The labor
convention for the purpose of taking
independent action in politics w.ts
called to order by President McBrido
at 10 o'clock tliis morning in the
Trades Assembly hall. John Bran
schweger, president of the Central
Labor union of Toledo, was elected
temporary chairman.
Ttie only approach toward speioh
making was by Temporary Chairman
Branschweiger, who said the conven

among trade nnions all over the coun
try in favor of united and independent
political action.
Delegates to the number of 110 wore
present, others still to come. The hall
was crowded and Lydon hall, a large
auditorium, was secured for the after

Vice President of American Railway
Union Gives Some Interesting
Chicago, Aug. 15. In his testimony
bsfure the national board of labor
commissioners today Gtorge W. How
ard, vice presideut of thn American
Railway union, gave some history of
the uoion in an interesting way. Mr,
Howard was asked if the policy of the
Amerioan Railway union was to ab
sorb the other labor organizations, nnd
if so whether this policy bad anything
to do with the recent strike.
Mr. Howard said it had nothing to
do with the declaration of the strike,
bun to do with the outcome of it. The
American Railway uniau, he asserted,
was formed to prmoie a narmoay of
action among railway . employes, and
not to destroy other organizations. The
scope of the American Railway union
was defined at length. Mr, Howard
said the boycott against Pullman curs
was instituted, not because Pullman
had manufactured the cars, but be
cause ho operated them. "We simply
wished to out off Mr. Tollman's rev
enue," said the witness,
Mr. Howard wont minutely into the
extent and cantos of the strike. He
related bow the general managers re
fused, on Mayor Hopkins' request, to
arbitrate the strike. He said the first
he had beard of rioting was when a re
p rter for a morning paper drew a pis
t 1 at Bine Island. Mr. Howard testi
fi'dtbatbe had given information to
city detectives that certain persons had
been paid large suras by General Mana
ger Egan, of tho Rook Island road, to
burn cars, thereby arousing publio sen
timent against the striken.
John L. Kernan asked the witness
annmberot questions with a view to
showing that Htrikes are nnneccessary
and that they give the lawless element
a chance to commit acts of violence. Mr.
Howard acknowledged that this was
true and that it was better not to
strike, than to strike if possible.
The commission adjourned with Mr.
Howard still on the stand.

An unsuccessful effort has been
made by the citizuns of Gettyabnrg to
have the provost guard withdrawn
from the town so that the soldiers
would have free access to it. The
trades people want the money of the
boys in blue. General Snowden, how
ever, refused to withdraw the guard
and the boys are still debarred from
the town and its pleasures.
Today the weather was nlmost per
fect. The health of the men of the
regiment continues good, the few cases
of sickness being of a non-serious
character. General Snowden informed
The Tribune representative this evuu
ing that there will be but one division
reviewed of the troops which wili take
place this afternoon.
Assistant Secretary of War Doe ar
rived Tuesday night as the representa
tive of the national government. A
salute to him was fired today. Among

Reynolds of Delaware and General
Brown of Maryland. Lieutenant Colo
nel Coursen of the Thirteenth will have
the honor today of beiug field officer at
division headquarters.
The camp looks most impressive after
nightfall, viewod from Semiuary ridge.
To the east, west, north nnd south
hundreds of tents can be faintly dis
cerned in outline by the aid of the
lights within, whilo the murmur of
many voices float on the midnight air.
One regiment is singing, anothershont
ing, while a third is applauding the
efforts of some entertainer or indorsing
his work by shouts of laughter. Here
and there a solitary figure moves along
on the outskirts of tho camp with the
precision of a machine. It is the guard
on whose vigilance the safety of the
camp is supposed to depend.
The regulations at this division en
campment are very rigid, and many of
the boys begin to chaff uudor the re
straint which camp life imposes. Thus
fur veiy few of them have been suc
cessful in obtaining the coveted per
mission to visit Gettysburg, General
Snowden believes that the place
for the soldiers is in camp, and has is
sued orders to that effect. Companies
are detailed daily to patrol the town,
and those who have the hardihood to
visit it without permission, find con
siderable difficulty in evading the pa
Some of the soldiers have shown a
disposition to indnlge in rowdyism, but
to the credit of the members of the
Thirteenth be it said thut they take no
part in anything that would reflect
discredit on them. Two members of
the Fourteenth regiment ot the Sec
ond brigade, Srgnnt Dorsey and Pri
vate Coover, were driven out of enmp
for unsoldierly conduct at Gettysburg
aud several members of the same regi
ment wore arrested at Round Top Mou
day for taking forcible possession or

Mies Gallagher Returns to Her Home a
Broken-Hearted GirL
Mrs. DavUou, nee Gallagher, who
married and departed with a man
named Davison, alias Lindsay, who it
afterward developed is a bigamist and
defaulter, returned to her home in this
city yesterday on a telegram summon
ing her from rottsville where ber sis
ter located her.
Mies Gallagher, as she must be
called, it it can not be shown that the
reports concerning Davison are false,
said yesterday that she whs more than
surprised to boar thut Davison wns
charged with suoh terribie offenses.
He was most kind nnd attentive to her
and she wns led to believe that be wns
