Washington, Aug. 23.
MOST remarkable contribution to
the tariff literature appears ia
the Congressional Record today.
It is a speech by Representative
Marriot Brosius. of Pennsylvania,
printed nnder tbe general list given in
tbe rale by which the bouse of repre
sentatives last week concurred in the
senate amendment to the bill. The
key note of the production is given in
tbe quotation from Fletcher, with
which tbe matter is introduced) "Let
me write the ballads of a nation and I
ears not who mokes tbeir laws."
After a brief dissertation in tbe
usual manner nnon Demoeratio defi
ciencies, Mr. Brosius saysi "I shall not
set before our nnregenerate brethren
their sins of omission and commission
In the scarlet livery of tbeir real turpi
tude, bnt I shall let tbe matters be es

character for tenderness and mercy. I
shall summon tbe muses, who each in
bar own peculiar field, yet all with
uniform consent and true poetic order,
have volunteered to transmit the mani
fold delinquiaeies which shall engage
tbeir pens to eoming generations on
wings of immortal song."

from tbe "Blgelow papers.'

Mr. Brosius indulged in no less than
twenty-eight rhyming, if not poetioal,
descriptions of tbe shortcomings of the
majority. Some of tbese are parodies
of well known airs or lines, ''The Old
Oaken Bucket" being tbe pattern for a
few of them, and they are dressed in
German, Irish and street gamin dia
leota. The aerostis is also invoked,
the more satisfactorily to express the
orator's opinion of tbe attitude of tbe
Demoeratio administration toward tne
policy of protection. The last effusion
bas a "stair case" refrain, after tbe
fashion of James Whitcomb Kiley.
The "Doem" elves Mr. Brosius' views
of the results of tbe "big storm" next

Now the soutb Is in the saddle and the

The Senate Has Much Difficulty in
Securing a Quorum and Ad
Washington, Aug. 23. Tbe session
of tbe senate today lasted only an
hour and three-quarters, most of that
time being spent m waiting lor the
appearanoe of a quorum. Ihe
lack of that article bad been
called to the attention- of the
vice president soon after tbe
hour of meeting and when tbe roll of
senators called it was found tbat only
thirty-two hud responded. Tbe ser
geant at arms was thereupon directed
to request the attendance of absent
senators, and after waiting more than
an bonr it was reported by the clerk to
tbe vice nresideat and by tbe vice
president to tbe senate tbat forty-three
senators, exactly a quorum, baa an

were Demoorats, ten Kepubll

ALLOWED A RATTLER TO BITE.
Professor Beyer' Hazardous Experiment
in Behalf of Soienee.
New Orleans, Ang, 23 Professor
George Beyer, curator of Tulane Uni
versity museum in this city, on Mou
day allowed himself to be bitten by a
rattler in order to determine if a person
can be inooulated and rendered proof
against the venom of serpents. From
bis large collection ol snakes be select
d a yonng rattler that had been
eanght a few days ago. He teased the
snake nntil It was angry, then held out
his hand in inch a position that the
rattler struck bis little finger. The
professor did not use any antidote, and
awaited developments. In the course
of a few .hours tbe finger became swol
len to twioe its normal size.
Tbe professor said that during the
week be would allow himself to be
bitten again. He does not think tbe
bite will prove fatal because a yonng
snake cannot emit as much poisen aa
an old one. Tbe sensation was very
much like tbe sting of a bee, but tbe
pain was intense. Professor Beyer's
object in experimenting is to prove
tbat by tbe gradual absorption of
snake's vemon tbe svstem will become
inoculated, and a person in tbat condi
tion can be bitten without the result
liroving fatal. Professor Beyer thinks
his experiment will be sucsessful.
