It Is Caused by the Resolutions in the Western States Congress. Minnesota Delegates Object to th Position Taken on the Tariff and Coinage and Withdraw, THE CONGRESS ADJOURNS. KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 18.—The session of the commercial congress Friday was quite boisterous, growing out of the debate on the resolutions E. A. V. Smalley, chairman of the Minnesota delegation, denounced the congress as a democratic machine, ark left the hall with his delegation. After the introduction of the majority repon of the committee on resolutions, the minority report was presented. A synopsis is as follows: It opposes a tariff for revenue, believing that such a •farlH would bo levied on tea, cofloe, sugar and other articles which we most largely Import for general use and recommends tout the government should hold fast to the American principle of a moderate protec tion to American Industry; and deolttree In favor of a fair trial of the presenl law with rec proctty and In favor ol a non-partisan tariff commission to Inquire Into the working of labor and all Industrial callings, including agriculture, with a view to the eqult- able'adjustment of tariff schedules from time to time., The minority further favors the free unlimited coinage oC American silver and gold, whieh w.uld make the silver dollar and the gold dollar or eg.ua! purchasing power in all markets of the world; favors the holding of an international monetary convention to establish such a ratio and secure its acceptance by all commercial nations of the world, but until such ratio can be 90 established opposes the unlimited coinage of silver Into the present legal tender dollar; believing that such a course would drive gold out of circulation, lower the standard value, contract the present volume of the circulating medium and seriously cripple our foreign trade. The free coinage and tariff resolutions of both the majority and minority reports were received with applause. A resolution relative to immigration was loudly applauded, and the resolution which hailed with delight the burial of all animosities between the north and south was greeted with great applause and upon motion of Maj. Warner, of Missouri, was given three hearty cheers. Gen. Warner, of Ohio, submitted the following as a substitute for the tariff resolutions of both reports: 'We favor neither free trade nor the exclusion of trade, but favor a tariff for revenue limited to the actual needs of the government economically administered, but so levied as to cover differences In the Industrial condition between this and other countries, but not to create and foster monopolies." President Francis, after a long debate, ruled the resolution out of order. Mr. Gridley. of Minnesota, then offered a substitute for the minority report, similar to that of Mr. Warner's, and it was adopted. The debate on the resolutions was begun once more and the discussion again assumed a violent form, and finally D. S. Croser, E. M. Johnson and W. A. Barnes, representing the business union of St. Paul, withdrew from the convention. The minority report representing republican views was voted down viva voce. The consideration of the majority report was then proceeded with. The debate again became intensely partisan and heated. Finally a vote was taken by a call of states on the adoption of the'majority favoring free silver and lower duties, and it was adopted, 00 to 55, all the state delegations being' divided upon the question. Mr. Smalley, of Minnesota, rose to a question of personal privilege. He said the congress had degenerated into a democratic powwow, and as a nonpartisan candidate he desired to resign as chairman of the committee on reso- .utions. Mr. Smalley explained his course and withdrew from the congress. Dr. Bryan, of Nebraska, offered a resolution urging congress to pass a law making all legal money legal tender, notwithstanding any contract which may be made calling for the discharge of obligations by the payment of gold. The resolution was adopted. Other resolutions were adopted indorsing the world's fair, indorsing the Torrey bankruptcy bill and making the congress a permanent organization to meet biennially. The usual complimentary resolutions were then adopted, and the congress, at 9:15 p. m., ad- ourned to meet at the call of the ex- jcutive committee. Illinois Gets Her Direct Tax Kcfand.
