SHERMAN LEADS THE MUSIC IN THE SENATE CON SPIRlTO. Voorhee* Joins In the Opera With Great En>ot and the Trouble HRJI n»gun—Car- llnln Btlll Heiltatvll With Thole Com- mltteeA, While thn Hon»e S«nil« np a K«w Uttlr Mill.—Specimen Propositions Aw&ltlng Ilttferenoe—Rome Raids aa the Surplus WASHINGTON Crrr, Jan. 5.—Tbe first »e»- vion of tbe senate after the holidays was held, as par adjournment, Wednesday, and wa* principally occupied In debate of the president's message. Sherman making tba most extensive speech. He said that Mr. Cleveland had departed from the practice of bis illustrious predecessors, dropped all reference to foreign relations and Interesting national questions, even omitting the uiual recognition of tbe Supreme Ruler, postponing everything terrestrial and celestial until after the surplus should be disposed of. Sherman felt called upon to consider whether tbe danger* spoken of in the message were not exaggerations, and to examine the remedies proposod. He then' said that a surplus was not considered an evil by Jefferson and Jackson, twitted the Democracy with the fact that they had so far done nothing to reduce lt,and said they would not pass a bill unless it was fraraad to Injure domestic production. The president'was an alarmist; there was no such danger in the surplus as be had Intimated, and 1C there was he had, vetoed bills that would have greatly reduced It—bills that were meritorious and should have become laws. The president's message, fairly construed, waa a severe Indictment of all engaged in manufactures—a sweeping accusation agaliut the policy of protection as supported by the great mass of bia countrymen and recommended by his most illustrious predecessors. Proceeding of detail*, Sherman said that during the fiscal year ending June 80, 1887, tbe total value of foreign importations was filSlt,000,0JO, ti33,000,OuO of that amount being free of duty; so that as to over one- third of all articles of foreign production consumed in this country there was absolute free tradK Tbey were mainly such articles as, by reason of climate, could not be produced here, and did not come Into competition with domestic Industries. With that kind ot free trade he was in hearty sympathy. He would extend It to every article of common use, the growth or production of which in the United Status was not profitable. It was exactly the opposite policy that was proposed by the president and by the school to which the president belonged. They sought to place taxes upon article* now free, such as tea and coffee, In order that a greater reduction might be made on articles that did come into competition with home industry. After deducting the free Us', the value of imported goods last'year was $450,000,000, on which duties levied. Should there be a uniform ! rate of duty on the goods! No; but there should be a careful discrimination and classification of rates, depending upon the nature nnd quality of the goods; upon who were to be tbe consumers, and upon the effect which- the rates proposed would have upon domestic industry. Therefore, articles of voluntary use, of luxury, ornament or appetite, not in common use among tbe people, and which are purchased almost exclusively by the wealthy, should bear a higher rate of taxation—the highest rate collectable without excluding them or inducing smuggling. This was founded upon tbe admitted maxim of political economy that tuxes should be as- tessed upon those boat able to pay. This applied to wines, liquors, and cigars (supposed to be superior in flavor to the domestic articles), and to silks, satins, broadcloths, innumerable articles of dress ornament; to porcelain, statuary, paintings, glassware and tbe like. This waa the policy of the present tariff, and it bad operated even better than had been boped. The value of such articles imported wa* not less than $130,000,000, and tbe lutles collected on them not less than t&\- OiW.OOO—nearly one-third of tba whole amount collected. It certainly could not be said of tbese duties that they "imposed a burden upon (hose who consumed domestic products aa well as npon those wbo consumed imported articles" (using the president's language). Dn tbe contrary, these duties had imposed tbe chief burdens of taxation upon articles of voluntary ' luxury, and bad still .incited American artist* and merchants to compote In those branches of industry with the (killed artisan* of Europe and Asia. In this way remarkable progress bad been made in those expensive productions, and porcelain, tableware, ornaments, clothing, decorated and tnameled furniture, and a multitude of other articles of taste and luxury (the work of American mechanics) hod been brought within the mean* of great masse* of tb* American people. Another cla r • of duties was on article* of !ood and on animals. Of these tbe value im> ported last fiscal year was $113,000,OuO, and .he duty paid on them {68,000,000. Of this mm tbe sugar, rice and fruit imported were valued at I9),00u,000, and paid a duty of (63,000,000, or more than, nine-tenth* of all the taxes levied on food and animals. These were articles that entered into the oonuump- >Ion of every family in tbe United States. > [I the object wore to reduce surplus revenue,' what better mode (he asked) could be Bug- tested than to repeal part of tbe duty on been applied for the bensflt of tbe farmer, tbe miner and the furn*;«a owner, as wel as of lha manufacturer, and whenever tha rule was departed from the whole system would fall, and properly so. The principle of protecilon demanded equality of benefits and of burdens. Tho treatment of this question by tha president waa a delusion and a mare. The prasi dent assumed that the cost of living (especi ally of food and clothing) was higher in th< United States than in Europe. That waa no' true. Food of overy kind (except sugar) wa* cheaper here than in any market In Europe. The clo.hlng worn by workingtuen (Includ ing blankeU) was sold here at as low prices as in London or Liverpool. The quantity and quality of tbe food of laboring men were oonfessadly better and greater here than In Europe, and the rate of wages was from 5U to 100 per cent higher hero. The pre*tden did not dispute these\ poinU, but appealed to the manufacturer (who had been represente I as a robber, a conspirator and extortioner not to reduce the worklngman's wages, bu to pay more out of the surplus profits— profit/I very often found on tbe wrong side of the ledger. Sherman concluded as follows: "It i* to tbe senate only that I have the right to ap peal. The best that we can do for mankinc is to do the b st for our country. Our country's welfare Is our first concern And who promotes that best, best proves hi* duty. "The homo missionary Is tha best mission ary; the light of our example we give to foreign nations; duty we owe to our own. What higher duty can there be than to be watchful of the interests, and to protect and foeter and diversify the Industries of the Amoriran peopleP The speech was closely attended to by the senators, and Voorhees mad* a brief reply, the points of which was tbe allegation that the Republicans were unlng the message to help them at the next election, but they would fall. The criticisms were nnlfalr and unjust, insincere and misleading and full of gross misrepresentation*. The message would bear discussion and would prove to be no attack on American labor, but a state* manlike, courageous and sound document. Coming down to the practical question ol taxation, Voorhee* said he wa* aware thai there wore many objection* to . Internal taxes, but on a ground far different* from a desire to perpetuate enormous and unjust tariff taxes on the necessaries of Ufa He appreciated the fact that for many yean ani especially Iu several states, the whole system had been used as a powerful Instrument of partisan political warfare, and bad .been ren dered odious to every free-minded citizen. He was also often reminded that it was a , war tax, and that it should pan away in time of peace. All these opinion* had their weight with him. But while heavy taxes, which had been laid by a war tariff on every article entering into the want* and necessities of tbe people, were not reduced at all, be submitted that the work of reform and ! reduction should be pursued in that field, ' and the Internal revenue system left to stand yet awhile, subject to certain modifications. An to tobacco, he suggested that the were j tax on cigars and snuff (producing 112,600, """ 000) might be retained, and the rest of the ! tax (producing $17,000,000) abolished. This, however, was a feature of detail—and perhaps a feature of compromise. j Tbe great bulk of abatement In the present , total unnecessary taxation of the people people would have to take place in a careful and prudent revision' of the tariff, and we would have to leave to tbe future what might seem tbe beet means and arrangement* by which to attain that end. As a choice between reducing internal revenue or tariff taxes, he would labor to cheapen woolens, linens, cotton fabrics, salt, lumber, coal, iron, steel, and all other staple commodities, rather than such articles a* were indulged in from acquired habit* or luxurious modes of living. After quoting some sentence* from the president'* message, Voorhee* asked whether it was from such wise and conservative statements (guarding the interests of American manufacturers on the one band, while sock ing to relieve the people on the other) that tba charges of "free trade" were made agalnitthe message. Did It not rather seem, he asked, that those who caviled with Mr. Cleveland and denounced bis view* were such as had predetermined a quarrel, and who would not approve the Declaration Of Independence if It came from bis bandit Such political loaders might have their use*, but in the present instance it required no gift of prophecy to foresee that, as "blind leaden of the blind" they and their folio wen would roll In the ditch of defeat together. A persistent and violent effort was balng made by those who managed and led the opposition to the present administration to convince tbe public mind that the president was unfriendly to labor laterals and labor organizations, and that the reduction of taxes would be so powerfully enforced a* to prove hurtful to the worklngmen, and especially to wage laborers employed In manufacturing industries. He might pause to ask the meaning of the present condition of the wage- worker* in many of the most extensive manufacturing regions, nnd why under tbe present high tariff were they engaged in constant .strike* and severe struggles with their employers. HI* heart wa* full' of appreciative sympathy for the working 'man and his household, as they gathered around their troubled fireside, often in penury, sometimes in actual want, and never in ease or ufflu- ence. But he had never yet conceived it to be a remedy for hi* privations and anxieties to increase the tax on bis blauketa and bed- clothing, or on his salt and meager table, . ware. Tbe president had expressed his sollcl- md thus directly relieve the people of j tude for the welfare of tha American laborer, ,000 of taxes on articles in most oren- I Bu d had pointed out the vigilant care which his Interests should receive in the treatment of the tariff. Fetitlons were banded In against the purpose of the fisheries communion,and indorsing tbe intor-itate Jaw and a government telegraph. Brown offered a resolution favoring tariff for revenue and repeal of the internal revenue laws, and said he would speak on It next Monday. Sherman moved to refer the message to the finance 'committee, but without action, tbe senate held] a short executive session, and adjourned. 138,500,000 of taxes on articles in most gen eral use, and now bearing a tax of 83 per, cent! No such suggestion was made by the. >resident or secretary of tba treasury, and i 10 [ Sherman] did not care to explore tho' reasons for their sllenoe. The groat body ot crude article* imported • which entered Into the processes of domestic: hdustry to the value of $108,000,000, were row free of duty. Every Imported article of 'hat class was so, unless it competed directly with tbe development of American resource*. : Duties averaging S3 par*cent were now levied upon such imported articles, valued at $59, 100,000, and which yielded i revenue of $19, 500,000. Tbe chief of them were agricultural products—wojjjj , flax, hemp and other textile grasses, hope,' bristles and seeds, valued at (.15,000,000, and yielding a revenue of f ;0,000,OUO, or leas than 80 per cent The remainder was chiefly in metals, ore, and n pigs, coal and marble, of the valua of fcU,Mn,000, and yielding JO.e&o.OOO, -These niport* came Into direct competition with he production* of nearly 2,000,000 American armers, and of hundreds of thousands of la- wring men. Tbe moderate protection given 'to the aborer and capital employed In the mining and agricultural Industrie*, wa* the favorite mint of assault by the president and all freer*d«n upon the protective policy.

During that winter scores of men, women and children actually died of starvation. The miners of Donaldson, Schuylkill county, are; probably the tnoit determined of any of tho stritan At their meeting resolutions were passed that the men would "not! return to work until compelled to devour their boot-top* cooked in brine." The individual operators are all making arrangements to resume work, the qaettiom at issue to await the decision in the Beading case. This will leave the coal and iron company to fight the labor battlo alone. They accept the issue and at a meeting of. the ell coal and iron district superintendents Wednesday afternoon with manager Whiting and Superintendent Velth, it « decided to wait the return to work of their employes, and to give encouragement and guarantee safety to all who want to be employed. It wa* the opinion of the superintendents that a majority of the miners wanted to work, bnt wore in fear of the labor agitators' wrath and their companions' derision. The question of subsistence Is bothering the strike leaders somewhat, and the miners of the Wyoming region will be asked to give II per head to aid the strikers. Secretary Cahill reports that he is in dally receipt of goodly contributions from the Lehlgh men. -John L, Lee and C.-J. Farne,-of the executive committee of the Reading strikers, went to Bcranton Wednesday to put their case before General Master Workman Fowdarly, but he was not well enough to consider the mattes, and It was referred to the general executive board at Philadelphia.* Mr. Powderly Is laid to have denied, with strong emphasis, that he had at any time expressed an opinion adverse to the action of the striken. In the meantime the coal supply touches every tody. It Is a fact admitted on all sides that the (stocks tore, at Philadelphia and other places is very low, bnt opinions differ u to whether there will be a famine. It Is thought that the Pennsylvania railway, with the individual collries us will be able to prevent such a disaster. President Corbln had a consultation with General Manager McLeod and General Superintendent Swelgart, at the office of the Readding Railroad company, at Philadelphia, and agreed upon an address to the miners ordering them back to work. If they refuse Mr. McLeod said tliolr plnoes would be filled by new men, who could be obtained In gnat numbers from other parts of the country. At Bhamokln the Pennsylvania railroad miners'train, carrying 600 men, returning from work, was wrecked Wednesday night A (ill was wedged on .the roadbed. This la the third attempt to wreck the train. The miners are very angry and threaten renge- anoa. No person was seriously Injured. The miners riding on the train were all Knights of Labor, working at mines paying their price. They do not understand the animus of the wreckers, but believe they are soma dissatisfied parties who desire a stoppage of mining in tho entire region. HEWITT'S RULE FOR STRIKES. Jottln.ble When Employer* Will Not Pay Current Niw YORK, Jan. S.— Mayor Hewitt ha» written a lattef to a Brooklyn friend which was published Thursday. It treats with characteristic pointoJnosa of the labor question. After indorsing labor unions, but condemning unnecessary strikes and boycotts, the mayor declares that laboring men are entitled to the current rate of wages. Says Mr, Hewitt: "In the case which you put to me, that of manufacturers who will not pay the current rate of wages, I should recommend resistance on the part of the workmen through their union,, and If necessary the aid of other Unions of workmen. It is exceedingly desirable that the standard ot wages paid to workmen tbould be as high aa possible, and all effort* to raise the rat* of wages without interfering with the rights of the individual workman are to be encouraged by right-minded men."
