TWEKTY-rOUHTH YEAE. ASKS A LITTLE HELP Democratic Senators Urged to Pause la Their Mad Career. Handorson Pleads for the Protection of - the Oatmeal Industry. ' HAS PIGUEES TO FOBTIIT HIMSELF Charge Made That m New JTrnut Is Catting a Figure la Tariff Mate- log A Dangerous Southern Blval. . Washington, Jane 7. Special. Senator Manderson occupied the floor of the senate for an hour this afternoon ... in an able speech against the proposed re-" duitiou of the tariff upon oatmeal. The senator confined his remarks entirely to the schedule of the Wilson bill, or rather the senate negative of the tariff bill bearing that name, and took occa- sion within hia hour to. quote figures and statistics which could not be denied. His republican colleagues gathered around him and listened closely to his remarks. Ex-Senator Paddock was also upon the floor and was attentive to 4 what his old colleague had to say. Senator Manderson gave a short history of the oatmeal industry - from the time of its birth at Akron, O., thirty years ago, until the present and of the disastrous effect which would be produced If the amendment passed.' "Argentine Republic," he said, "is rapidly becoming a great and dangerous rival of the United States in corn and wheat raising. With a tariff upon this- product corn from that nation can be landed in New York, with all expenses of transportation paid, at a lower price .than it costs us in America to raise the grain. With her 200,000,000 square miles of fertile ground and her cheap labor sho would be more than a rival, for she would kill our industry, not only in the state of Nebraska, but in the whole country. Struck a Tender Spot. This remark . struck Senator Vest of Missouri evently in a soft spot, for he was quickly on his feet with a denial that such would be the effect The interruption did not attract much attention to the democratic senator and Sir. Manderson continued. ' Hecould not see why, he said, wheat and corn should be made free of duty and barley given a tariff of 83 per cent ad valorem unless it was in the interest of the brewers' . trust; in-fact, he could not see why they should be made free at all when it ' was plainly T evident that this industry, as indeed all other industries,, had -progressed so rapidly under the protective tariffs of - 1861, 1883 and 1890. At the close of Senator Manderson's remarks and while he was being congratulated by hisjfellow member Senator Allen of Nebraska - 1 was jiDuwu bue uuur uuu inous a Buorc, characteristic address, in which he took occasion to differ with his 'colleague, and was followed in bis utterances very carefully by the official stenographers. Senator Manderson received a tele- pram from the Drexel Stone company of Omaha, which company is doing the masonry work upon the federal building in that city, , calling his attention to the fact that work could not progress further upon the structure owing to the lack of funds. The senator immediately called at the treasury department and bad the satisfaction of seeing ordered out for the firm the sum of 820,000. Mr. Hainer today introduced in the bouse a bill granting an increase of pen eion to John F. Early of Wilber, Neb. A Dangerous Southern Rival. It will be of interest to the people of Nebraska to learn that Minister Zeballos of the Argentine republic is thinking seriously of buying large numbers of fine cattle and horses in the United States to ship to the Argentine Republic for the purpose of improving the breed ot Horses ana cattle in that agricultural nation. Minister Zeballos has been making inquiries during the past week of the secretary of agriculture with reference to this matter and it need not be said that his - attention has been directed to the herds of our own state as sources to which he oould properly direct his attention. The Argentine Republic is a great cattle raising country!.' Vast herds of long horned steers range over its pam pas.' It is one of the largest sources of supply for hides for all the world. But the character of the stock has been stead ily deteriorating and the government Is anxious to improve, tne . Dreod ana is now apparently looking to the United States to assist it tn tms ooiecs. xnci- dentally it may be mentioned that the Argentine Republic . will have for sale - and will push in European markets this year a surplus of 60,000,000 bushels of wheat .Last year tbey baa only 84, wu, 000 or 35,000,000 to sell. The vast sur- f)lus now on hand does not bode well for iigh prices for American wheat The advantage which our southern sister has as a wheat competitor lies in the nearness of their great wheat fields to the ocean, their average : dist tan ce from tide water being only one hundred miles. - In consequence they are enabled to land their wheat on board vessels much cheaper than our farmers in the far west with from fif teen hundred to seventeen hundred railes of inland transportation even if cost ot production were the same, which it is cot It is true that the Argentine wheat does not grade with our American wheat nor does it command the same price in European markets bat the con ditions are such in that country that for many years to come it is likely to be a more dangerous competitor to the wheat fields of the Dakotas and of Minne sota - than India, the Danubian principalities of the new provinces of Russia, which -are pouring their products into the ports of Glasgow, Liver pool, Bremen, Havre and Marseilles. The lesson which these conditions ought to teacn to our western farmers is diversification of the far ruin a; industry, concen tration of products on the farm, the sale of corn on the hoof or ' through starch and cereal mill production, the raising of beets and the sale of garden truck from, farni3 adjacent to cities and towns.

The progress made in the senate today on the tariff bill was so infinitesimal as to cause Mr. Harris, who has parliamentary charge of it, to rise at 6 p. m. and with grim humor say that he was bo much gratified by the fact that throughout yesterday and today two small paragraphs of the agricultural schedule had been dis posed of that he would move to pro ceed to executive business. The whole day was spent in discussing the paragraph as to duty on wheat, oats. etc.. including an apparently unimportant amendment reducing the duty on oat meal from 20 to 15 per cent, and the paragraph was not completed at the ad journment . - Before taking up the tariff but the question of the debt of the Central Pacific Railroad company to the .govern ment and especially the liability of Mr. Leland Stanford's estate for $15,000,000 of the debt was brought up on a resolution offered by Mr. Hoar instructing the judiciary committee to inquire and re port whether the attempt just initiated by the law officers of the government to enforce such liability should not be forthwith relinquished and put at rest, After a short discussion the resolution went over without action till tomorrow. The senate adjourned at 6:10 p. m. - TWO LUSIY RIVALS. A Quarrel Between New Tork and Cat . oogo In the House. " Washington, June 7. The session of the houae'today was given oer to consideration in committee of the whole of the Indian ' appropriation bill for the year ending June 30, 1895. It was notable for the outburst of business jealousy between New York and Chicago, growing out of the proposition in the bill authorizing the secretary of the in terior to remove the Indian warehouse from New York to Chicago. It is hoped that the bill may be taken up to morrow under the five minute rule. Besides considering the - Indian appro priation bill the house agreed to a reso lution, authorizing the committee on immigration to make an investigation at Ellis island, and ask the secretary gt the treasury to transmit what has been done by the officials charged therewith toward enforcing the immigration and contract labor laws. A joint resolution was passed confirming the enlargement of the Red Cliff Indian reservation ' in Wisconsin, made in 1863. Armor Plata Inquiry. 5 " 1 Washington, 'June 7.
