The Republicans were active and disposed to ask some embarrassing questions concerning the "compromise amendments" offered to the tariff bill. Mr. Quay demanded the presence of a quorum before the journal was read. Some routine business intervened. The credentials of Senator-elect Gear of Iowa were presented by Mr. Allison. Mr. Hoar questioned the form of the certificate. ! A certificate of the speaker of the Iowa house and the president of the Iowa senate, Mr. Wilson, whom Mr. Gear is to succeed, stated that the certificate was in the form usually employed In Iowa. Mr. Allison suggested that the certificate lie on the table. There was plenty of time, he said, between, now' and March 4 next to examine it. ! At 11:80 Mr. Harris, in charge of the tariff bill, abruptly moved to proceed vdth the consideration of that bill. Mr. Hoar took the floor. i Senator dray'* Ire Aroused. I Toward the close of his speech Mr. Hoar succeeded in arousing the ire of Senator Gray. He was talking about the methods used by the socalled "conservative" Democratic senators to se- <rart concessions in the form of higher duties and includsd his statement by declaring Democratic senators who would support the compromise bill agreed upon bp the Democratic caucus would violate the'constitution and their oaths. This statement brought 'Mr. Gray to his fefet. He demanded to know what the Massachusetts senator meant by such a charge —a charge, he said, which waa unworthy of Mr. Hoar. Mr. Hoar-waved the Delaware senator aside. He would refuse to yield to bim, he said. Mr. Gray was not to be put off. His cheek was flamed. Ha insisted upon an ex< planation. "Very well," said Mr. Hoar. "I cannot be intimidated by a little bluster. But I will explain. I meant to say for a DEALEKS AND MA^lTFACTtJllEtlS OF , CARTS AND ALSO AGENTS FOB THE CELEBRATED --: Bettendorf Hollowsteel Wagon Axle :-- Made of two pieces of sheet steel, as compared with forty-nine pieces required to make the present wood axle, bolster, and stakes, with the necessary irons, bolts, nuts, rivets, and nails. ,/ Democrat who subscribed;to th» doctrine of the Chicago platform, that a tariff for protection was robbery, who went to the people affirming hie allegiance to that platform, and who now comes here seeking and obtaining protective duties, I mean to Bay that for such a senator there is no escape from the logic that he violates both his senatorial oath and the constitution." Hour Refused to Be Interrupted. Senator Gray made an effort to reply, bnt Mr. Hoar refused to be interrupted, whereupon Mr. Gray called him to order and asked a ruling upon this point that such language as the Massachusetts senator haa used w,os unparliamentary. Mr. Gallinger, who was in the chair, overruled the point of order. Mr. Gray could do nothing then but sit down. In GAEROL1,, IOWA. a few minutes Mr. speech. Mr. Gray arose. Hoar concluded his His anger had not subsided. This was the sixth week of the tariff debate, he began. If there was any doubt about the artificial character of the edifice of protection this debate had supplied it. Every attempt to ap- prqach the monstrous aggregation of LAND OVER FARMS, folly and greed known as the McKinley hill bad been met by those who raised a clamor about the interests of the people and by the greed' of corporations. The culmination of McKinleyism was characterized in this debate by the wild statements and assertions of the advocates of tbe system that bad wrought so much ruin to the country. They threw aside all restraint* of spies and dealt in the rhetoric of the slums, They east their foul aspersions on those who sought to do their duty to the country and their party. In the speech of the senator fropn Massachusetts the decorum of debate had been violated, but the language the bad indulged only showed the straits to which be had been put. I TOP Severe on the MoKlnley tow, Mr. Hoar's temper was seemingly un ruffled when he replied, in a few words, to what Mr. Gray hod said. He said the senator from Delaware had been too severe in his condemnation of the McKinley law and he stood here on this floor advocating a measure dotted and crowned all over with protection. If protection was unconstitutional and robbery, this was a wicked thing to .do. "Why did ho not tell the senate in extenuation of his course why he hod pat a protective duty on sugar?" ejaculated Mr. Gray from hit seat.

Yours respectfully, , North of Burke's Hotel. ne said, showed that after listening to Republican speeches for six weeks, the Democratic senators, had learned something. If the tariff bill was laid aside for a month and that month was devoted to study by his friends on the other tide of the chamber, he thought, at the end'pf that time they would bring in a bill which would be perfectly acceptable to the Republicans and which would pass the senate unanimously. The senate seemed to enjoy the playful joke. : When Mr, Merrill took bis seat Senator Quay (Pa.) appeared from behind,his huge pile of manuscript and resumed .the speech he has, been delivering.-since April iti. No attention was paid: to the Pennsylvania senator save by the .official reporters. However, at times during the afternoon, a call of the senate was bad at the suggestion of some of the Republican*. These calls gave Mr. Quay tbe necessary breathing 1 spells. At 4:45 p. m., on motion of Mr. Mills, the senate went into executive session.

"Con tbe senator not understand tbe di/Ioreuco between a protective and a revenue duty?" : At tbis retort, the Republicans tittered. Mr. Hoar insisted that an attempt to show tbut increases in duties were for revenue purposes, aud not for protection woe simply an evasion.
