THE KCEAKTON TKlBTINE-rRlDAY MORNING. . XOVEMBER 30, 1894.
QUVY SAYSJTJS DEFUNCT
The Income Tax, in His Opinion, Kill
Never become Operative. '
SUGAR MUST CARRY A TAX
It In the Only Safe VVav Out of the Finan
cial Hole Into Which Democratic
Incompetency Has Plunged the
X)y the United Pres9. (
Philadelphia, Nov. 29. Just before he
left here for Beaver Senator Quay said:
"I do not think the Income tax law will
ever be put in operation, and I do not
believe Secretary Carlisle is In favor of
operating it. I shall vote for every
measure favored by the administration
in the line of appropriations, and I
think the Republicans will not oppose
any reasonable demands made for
money; but I do not think congress will
authorize Secretary Carlisle to com
mence the collection of the Income tax
or that the secretary himself expects
Revenue to He liaised from Sugar.
"The estimated deficiency in the event
of the failure of this provision of the
Wilson bill is $30,000,000, and there are
many other ways much easier and less
expensive than this of raising the money
for the use of the government. The In
come tax scheme has always been
clumsy and awkward, even as a piece
of problematical legislation; and, as an
actual law, it Is almost, If not quite, im
possible of being carried into successful
"I look upon sugar as the remedy for
our national flnanclul Ills, and I think
the -Democratic administration is tuk
ing the same view of the matter. With
Senators Sherman and Cameron, I op
posed in 1890 the repeal of the tax and
the bounty on sugar, as proposed in the
McKinley bill, and I believe that had
this feature been beaten we would have
$:!00,000,000 of gold in the treasury which
is not there now.
"As the administration becomes fa
miliar with the financial situation, It
sees more clearly every day that the
easiest way to Increase Its revenue to
proper proportions is to restore the
duty on sugar to 2 cents a pound, as
it was before the McKinley bill; and I
would not be surprised if President
Cleveland himself takes this view In
his coming message to congress.
Sugar the One Hope.
"The over-production of susnr
through the world during the past year
is estimated at 1,300,000 tons, and this
in Itself is proof that the sugar trust
is not in a position to control or to
(feek to control legislation. In the com
plaint over the sugar schedule which
will take place in the senate I look for
a hot contest, but I believe the major
ity of the senators favor the restora
tion of the old rate of 2 cents a pound,
rather than the present schedule of 40
per cent, ad valorem.
"I shall propose the McKinley bill
schedule as a substitute to each one of
the five popgun bills, and. I suppose, the
Republicans will also introduce a-sugar
bounty measure. That thlsi Is better
that no sort of a revenue-creating leg
islation Is admitted, but a direct tariff
is to be preferred. I think the demor
alization of the Democratic party and
the straitened condition of the national
finances are largely due to the Demo
cratic bungle on sugar."
NO BACK DOORS.
Georgia Will lime a Dispensary System
. Similar to South Curolina.
By the United Press. '
Atlanta, Nov. 29. There Is a strong
probability that Georgia will In a short
time have In full operation a dispensary
system Bimilar to that established in
South Carolina. The Bush dispensary
bill has been pending before the gen
eral assembly for several days, and the
senate temperance committee has just
agreed to a report a substitute provid
ing that in Incorporated towns where
liquor is now being allowed to be sold,
fl, vender may sell It only on a petition
of a majority of the freeholders of the
town or city to the mayor and council.
He Bhall then give bond to the or
dinary in the sum of $5,000 for faithful
observance of the law. He shall pay
$100 to the state and all municipal and
national taxes for one year. He shall
only purchase liquor to sell, which has
been pronounced by the state chemist
pure and unadulterated, and to- retail
in quantities not less than one-half
plnit, and shall not sell to minors or
habitual drunkards. Each vender shall
have only one place of business and
nothing shall be sold in that place ex
cept intoxicating liquors, and it shall
be in full view of the street and there
shall be no back doors or back windows
or side doors. Each place shall be
cleared at 10 p. m. and not opened until
ti o. m. This measures is likely to pass
the general assembly and become a law.
MAY FAVOR SILVER.
Grover Said to Be Rcudy to Placate the
By the United Press.
Washington, Nov. 29. One of the re
ports said to have Its origin in ad
ministration circles is that Mr. Cleve
land will make some recommendations
in favor ot silver in his message. The
statement Is made on semi-oltlclal au
thority that., if , tho president enters
Into, the discussion of the new finan
cial plan, there are three or four points
to which he will give particular em
phasis, ' , . ,
It is said that his plan will involve
the repeal of the 10 per cent, tax on
state bank circulation; a recommenda
tion of some of the features of the "Bal
timore system," and a provision that a
certain percentage of Bllver shall be
used as a' basis fop bank note currency.
FOR AN' AGREEABLE-STRENGTHENING
THEN GET. THEi
The details of this proposition wotild re
quire banks issuing currency to have
as a part ef their assets silver in either
bullion or coin. This idea of favoring
Bllver will be used to placate the free
coinage men in case any financial
proposition is put In the shape of a bill
for the action of congress.
M'KIXLEY IX GOTHAM.
Declares That the Tariff Was the Only
Issue in the I.ate Elections.
By the United Press.
New York, Nov. 29. Governor McKin
ley Is In the city. In speaking of his
plans he said: "My visit has absolute
ly nothing to do with politics. I shall
probably be here about a week, and I
shall spend that time In recreation. I
do not Intend to let political matters
Interfere, even Incidentally."
When asked about the recent elections
the governor said: "I think their mean
ing is that the people recognize that this
Is their country, and that they Intend
to own it. There was but one issue
the tariff. This, I think, Is beyond a
doubt or question. It was clearly be
fore the voters, and their ballots show
what they think about It."
"Do you think there Is a possibility of
breaking the 'solid south?' "
"I do, and it seems to me, In the light
of the results, that West Virginia, Mis
souri and Tennessee are most hopeful.
It was a mighty victory."

The Jupuncse Premier Will Not Negotiate
By the United Press.
London, Nov. 29. The Central News
correspondent in Toklo telegraphs that
Commissioner Dietring and his spite
sailed for Tien Tain today. The Japa

that he would only receive an envoy
who had received his appointment di
rect from the government at I'ekin, nnd
would hold no communication with the
viceroy's messenger. The commissioner
desired to discuss with Count Ito terms
for tho establishment of peace between
China and Japan, but owing to the

NICARAGUA CANAL'S HOPE
Congress, in the Opinion of Repre
senativc Storcr, Will Pavor It.
FEDERAL OWNERSHIP URGED
Exact Status of the Bill Which Speaker
Crisp Would Not Permit to Como I'p
Last Session-Will It Faro
Better, Now ?
By tho United Press.
Washing-ton, Nov. 29. The actual con
dition of the Nlcaraguan canal project
which, in a subdued and quiet way,
seems to figure in the present Imbroglio
at Bluene-lds, to an extent Is this; At
the last session of congress a bill was
unanimously reported from the house
committee on commerce, providing for
a United States governmental construc
tion and control of the Nlcaraguan
canal. The bill authorised an Issue of
bonds amounting to 170.000 00ft l,v the
government for a term of thirty years
10 oear interest at 5 per cent, per annum.
It was proposed to pay to the incorpora
tors of the Maritime company, of which
Warner Miller, of New York, Is presi
dent, $3,500,000 of stock In the new com
pany for the charter obtained by them
from Nicaragua and Costa Rica, and
also to reimburse them In stock for the
sums expended by them In the prelimin
ary work of building the canal. The
governments of Nicaragua and Co3ta
Rica were also to receive in stock the'
amount guaranteed to them by the
Maritime company, while the remainder
would be held by the United States gov
ernment. Uiri Squelched hy Crisp.
The management of the canal was
delegated to a board of eleven directors,
eight representing the United Statesand
the other three the governments of
Nio.wigua nnd Costa Rica and the
Maritime Canal company respectively.
Tho bill was prepared by a sub-committee
of the house committee and a strong
point In favor of it was made by them to
the full committee. The sentiment jt
the house seemed fuvorable to the meas
ure but Speaker Crisp objected to it and
the measure was not called up.
It Is understood that strong pressure
will be brought upon him to make it a
special order between now and the holi
day recess. Representative Bellumy
Storer, of Ohio, who has been a cham
pion of the bill, said this morning that
the Republicans were generally favor
able to the proposition and that in the
next house, If not in this, the bill would
pass beyond a peradventure. ,
r0P.GUX BILLS DOOMED.
The Depleted State of the Treasury Dis
poses of All Hopes.
By the United Press.
Washington, Nov. 29. -The difference
of opinion among Democrats as to the
advisability of trying to pass the pop
gun tariff bills during this session, Is
made evident as members of the party
arrive In Washington and discuss the
question. It is believed that when they
all get here and come to talk the matter
over among themselves It will be decid
ed that this effort will make but use
less agitation, and that they cannot se
cure sufficient unity of action to make
It worth while
Some of the senators who are standing
for re-election may deem it to their In
terest to make a great show of earnest
ness for the pop-gun bills, but If so this
will all be spectacular, for the benefit of
their people at home, and will give no
promise of results.
