Keuna twitted Sherman with having experienced a complete change of opinion since i6C7, 187(5, and 188.', and declared Hint tbs latter's reference U Jefferson's view of a surplus was garbled, and gavo an entirely erronoom Impression of what tbe sentiments of Jefferson really were. In defending the existence of a surplui Sherman was dlnmetrically opposed to Jackson, Webster, Republican presidents and secretaries of the treasury, and many other He- publican statesmen. The president could woll afford to stand against stopping subsidies. Sherman policy had already driven American ships from the high seas, and he Boomop to be willing to continue the deBtruo- lon of our shipping Interests which bad been so successfully prosecuted in past years. Kenna argued that it woa true we bars no ships—they are prohibited together w(th obscene literature, counterfeit coins, and contagious diseased. These constituted the excluded class, yet obscene literature finds admission, and so does counterfeit coin and contagious disease. Republican protection succeeded only In excluding ships. Tbe senator from Oulo, who viewed with complacency the surplus In the treasury, perhaps congratulated himself that there is no surplus in 'ships. Tlie policy of subsidies which he advocated could not correct the evils of tbe pretended policy of protection which drives our commerce from the seas and confines our producere to ,the home market, and prevents them from carrying the . fruits of -, their Industries to the markets ot tbe world. The senator from Ohio had oom- plalnod of the failure ot a Democratic house to pass the Blair educational bill When he Invoked tho Bluir bill In opposition to 'the relief of the burdens of taxation and held It up as a menace to the demand ot the country for reform and reduction of taxation, bo adopted the most practical and sure way to defeat tho passage of that bllL When he asserted that It shall Interfere with the taxation of the country and contribute to the perpetuation of Intolerable burdens he compelled ninny of Its friends to abandon It j&mna denied the assertion that reducing duties Increases Importation and Increases the revenue.' Protection might be so high as to prevent Importation and yield no revenue, but the other extreme la free trade, 'which nobody asks. The true solution Is a fair and just medium, producing just the' necessary revenue' in a spirit of fuirneits to all Interests. Sherman had referred to a proposed degradation of the worklncman.' The president proposed only to lift the burden and give him «qual 'opportunities In tha struggle for life. The freedom, intelligence and manhood of American labor, exerted at tbe polls, would not 'allow present conditions to exist longer. The president stands squarely by the platform upon which he was elected, and Kenna, wished Ito express his hearty co-operation. He expected from the house a bill framed In a spirit ot conservative fairness to all sections and Interests. The- system which -the senator from Ohio championed bos caused more strikes, more distress, discontent, starvatlbn and death than any other system the country; has svur Boon. It Is time for a Changs end the president gravely confronts congress with tba requirements. There was nothing in his recommendation to alarm the country. A spirit of fairness and justice to all would prevail, aud both tha , benefits and tbe burdens of our : " system : of taxation, internal and external, would be fairly distributed, He rf bad no doubt the tobbaco tax would be reduced or repealed. Iron and coal and wool would be allowed their fair share in, tbe benefits of a revised system. Monopoly, fortified and 'entrenched behind twenty years of exaction 'and mlarulo. will have to go. Its citadel will ba stormed in . this congress, and the 'mask of Republican protection will be. torn {from tbe face of deceit aud «i tort Ion. When a bill came from tbe house it would be time enough for the consideration of details, and among tha foremost advocates of tbe Northern PaclBc grant, end of the second Union Pacific law. were such Democrats as'°Hen. drlcka and Roverdy Johnson. And those grant* were made by the consent of the people of the United States and in pursuance of resolutions of the Democratic and Republican national conventions ot 1>M:>. They were mnda without regard to parties or to north or south; for the south hod also, at that time, a project for a Southern Pacific railroad. , lt) .. i The Republican party said it would not strike down any protected industry of the country; that when manufactures had sprung up by tbe aid of protection it would not strike them down, derange their conduct, derange their plans, lower the prices of their labor, i Tbe Republican party would join with the-Domocr»tic pnrty In reducing such taxation as bare heavily on the people; but It would preserve the system of protection by tariff duties just so long aa it was necessary to give'to Americans a,fair chance in the trade 4 and commerce . of the country, to as not to invite foreigners to compete with boms Industry. The law referred to by the senator from West Virginia [In regard to immigration under contract] was passed In the midst of the war, when 3,000,000 northern men were down In the south. . It was a law inviting foreigners to help to make good tbe absence ot brav* Union soldiers. He would have voted then for any kind of law to defeat the Democratic party of that day. But be was sure that he bad voted tor ita repeal whenever that matter was presented. Ho congratulated congress that th* country was now to have a fair, square, manly issue presented on the industrial question; a question which affected tha life, property and interests ot every citizen; a question between protected labor In this country and tbe pauper labor of Europe; a question betweou diversified industries and that of a single (agricultural) interest, with a few blacksmiths' • aud carpenters' shops collected throughout the country. Amid the hum of applause which followed tha close of Sherman's remarks Reagan rose and briefly defended tbe Democratic party from the charge that It had presented no affirmative propoeltloh during the ten years that tlw party had a majority In the house of representatives. He disclaimed responsibility for a party which hod not control of both houses and of the executive at the some time, and yet he claimed for the Democrats the credit of several important meas- ures—inclvdlng the retention- of part of the greenback Issue, tbe stiver coinage law, the forfeiture of railroad land grouts, and tha inter-state commerce act. The motion to refer tbe president's message then went over without action. ________ .BUSINESS DRAGS IN CONGRESS. DR. M'GLYNN SETTLES IT.

George is earnestly bent on . fusion with the Democraoy, taking the free trade doctrine as a basis for tba amalgamation. The estrangement between the two men is complete. McOlynn used to make George's office bis headquarters. For a week he has kepi away from the place. He was asked to what extent ha and George were oppoeed.m to the proper policy for the Labor party. "We hold diametrically contrary views," said he. "I am as sure as I am of going to heaven that the Labor party will go to da- structlon If it fools with either oC tba old parties. We have an lame, and only one. We hare no business to attempt to throw the weight of the worklngmnn,.a9 a body, for or against free trade or protection. That we should turn aside from the straight path which George originally laid out for us II preposterous. I shall advocate a separata independent candidate and campaign before the convention, and I am hopeful that X shall carry the point Mr, Oeorge will oppose me, no doubt, and likely enough he foels as confident as I do of carrying the convention." . George said: "Free trade is going to be the great issue, and the Labor party can't get along Without taking It up. We should be free traders to a man, and iC we are, whit in the use of running a separata man for president if we bare the cbanoe to vote for a free trader Who might be elected." REFERRED TO MRS 1 .

B.ttVBXAKB, Sherman rose and congratulated his friend from West Virginia at having proclaimed the fact that tbe ranks of the Democratic party were closed, and that a distinct issue was to be presented to the people. That part} bad been in possession of power in tho house of representatives for more than tea years, and. not a single affirmative proposition or measure a* to the tariff question hail been presented to the judgment of the American people. If the Democratia party had closed up its ranks, and If there wan- to be a fair and manly contest between the two parties on this great publ'lo question, he would be delighted; but ha did not beliayn that the issue would bo presented. Let .the Democratic ranks be closed. Lot ita proposition to reduce taxation be presented, and tho Republican party would ba found with Ita old ranks unbroken ready to accept the issua aud let it go to thu people. .'..;' : But for the senator from West Virginia to 'assail him for having expressed yiaws.tsn or twenty years ago which appeared to be different from those he expressed " to-day, was "rather n small hole to creep out of.* It was trus that since _the J tariff discussion of twenty yean ago ha [Sherman] might have changed bis mini), but If he had not done uo, under the changed conditions and , circumstanoM, ho would not be worthy of a seat In tba senate.

The same rowdy colored element which dominated that convention took possession ot this meeting, and for awhile bedlam ensued. Finally the rough element was ejected, and the object for which the meeting was called —to protest against tbe rowdy doings in tbe recent convention—was accomplished by the adoption of appropriate .resolutions to that effect Gotham Chamber of Commeroe Talk, NBW YORK, Feb. S.— At a meeting of the chamber of commerce Thursday a long dls- cusiion was had on the subject of disposing of the national surplus by paying the merchant marine W) cents per ton for every 1,00) miles traversed, rebuilding the navy, and having American vessels carry American malls. There seemed to be an almost unanimous feeling In favor of the method, but It was laid over to a special meeting. The burden of the report of tbe committee on tbs restriction of Immigration was that no legislation wouU be effective in preventing the entrano3 of paupers, Anarchists, and other disaffected penions.
