f HE TARIFF BEIIATE, MOUSE CONTINUES TALK ON THE BILL, DolHter of Iowa Sfak«« th* S|M*t<* at tlie Jt>»y—Hewland* ot Toll* ot the Attitude Of th« Washington, March 24.— Although eaTeral sharp passes at arms somewhat enlivened the tariff debate In the house Tttesday, the brilliant speech of Mr, Dolliver of Iowa was distinctly the overshadowing fealure of the day. Mr. Gibson (Rep.) of Tennessee devoted himself to a general argument In favor of protection. Mr, ttockery (Dem.) of Missouri 'said tfce bill did not represent the issue ol the late campaign. The people would inrefer to see 1113,000,000 more money pat to circulation than to see that amount absorbed by the treasury. Mr. Dockery ridiculed the Idea : that- -the present tariff law • was the monster 'which had destroyed our industries. He denied that there was an era of prosperity for labor during the existence ot the McKlnley law and instanced the Carnegie strike. ,, Mr. Dockery was especially sarcastic in his remarks on the, absurdity of giving alleged protection to agricultural products. Of the $569,000,000 of products exported by the United States last year $504,000,000 was agricultural products. In conclusion, he said that the policy o' protection had driven our flag from the high seas, impoverished the laboring man and multiplied farm mortgages. 'Mr. Newlands discussed the sllvet bill from the standpoint of the silver men who united with Democrats and Populists during the last campaign in opposition to the Republicans. This J^BIKelJi^I^id^still continued^ and was likely to amalgamate the allied forces Into one strong party, with sll- Ter as the 'Supreme and dominant Issue, all other questions being subordinate to it and the largest tolerance being exercised as to the difference oi opinion on other questions which had hitherto divided the various elements constituting the silver forces. Tariff legislation alone, he asserted, would not give relief. Restore the old gold price of silver, $1.29 per ounce, and we immediately restore the old gold prices of our farm products -and this means, he said, protection to the American farms and plantations just as the tariff law means protection to the factory. ' He argued that the recent rise in •wheat proved that the price of that staple depends upon the price of sll- .ver, Just as the exception proves .the role. - - . Mr. Newlands contended in conclu- "8lon~that~the~area~of"distresis"for~years confined to the mining belt, the wheat twit and the cotton belt and had now extended to the middle and eastern states, which r were- suffering from the loes of the consuming capacity of the western and southern states. The increase of production to the factories .would not materially add to their prosperity unless, ;the consuming capacity of these regions was restored. That could not be done by tariff legislation, but could only be accomplished by legislation that- would stop the appreciation of gold and thus relieve our wheat and cotton industries from the "destructive competition of silver countries. Mr. McLaurln (Dem., S. C.) advocated" a~ duty ~ on" cotton™ to" keep~ourEgyp- tlan grown cotton; and also favored protection on cotton manufactured and other articles of southern production. ' Mr. Dolllver (Rep., . Iowa), was the next speaker, ;"Mr, Chairman, I like this bill because it is neither, eastern nor western nor northern nor southern. It is American through and through, opening the doors ;of opportunity to every section and to every state. Y6ur committee, gentlemen, without fear or favor toward any foreign country, has • conscientiously undertaken to make this bill a patriotic act of good will toward the United States of America. "The farmers of the United States, ffly brethren, are eager not for the fabled markets of the world; they are longing for the music of the old factory bell, calling back the idle millions to deserted workshops of the United States. The noise pf furnaces that are now closed, and of looms that are now allent, will mean ' a good deal to the working" people of the United States. It will mean not less to the scattered bouseholdB on distant prairies, where, for four years, industrious men hava Been the fruits of their toil waste' in the Jtelda that produced them." * He concluded as follows: *The Wilson law still stands and has far three years stood on the statute books of the United States without a Mend and without^ name, stealing the. Avenues from the treasury, wasting the resources of the government, stealing away the earnings ol American labor, taKlng from the American farms the s&arket place^ of the United 'States and el the world. That law stands oa the statute book today and brings this congress together ia extraordinary e«s- eion. "t£ tb.9 American people over get i&eir prosperity Ijack it will come by tfceir own individual enterprise and courage, »9t by edicts and proclamations, but by tas aoaegfc and careful ol eouditiojyi favorable to a&4 isijFWjUttest, I rwreutly t as the ol J?«»y- ai&tes a fer for thr-ir labor an*! s nd on the ! ,r Investment" Mr. Swanson (Dem,, Vs.), arguorl that the depressed condition of tbo manufacturing industries had. not resulted from foreign competition, but because customers were too poor to make purchases! that relief could not come to the manufacturer until the price of wheat, corn, oats, tobacco and of other products increased. He Insisted that the low price of these resulted from the appreciation of gold, which would continue BO long as silver was demone- tised. In •conclusion, he characterlzied the Dingley bill as the most exorbitant In its exactions, the .most prohibitory In its character, and the moat Iniquitous ever Bought to be enacted In this country. WOtJtD BLOT OPT CiVII. SERVICE. Syttem It Openly Denounced by Partisan* In the' Senate. Washington, March 24.—The senate was unexpectedly precipitated Into a civil-service debate Tuesday. Mr. Gallinger (N. H.) characterized the.clvll- servlco system as a-humbug, and declared he would be glad,to cast his yote to blot out the system. Mr. Allen (Neb.) called the civil-service act e "monumental humbug," and Mr. Wilson (Rep., Wash.) said It was a "humbug, delusion, a snare and a fraud." Mr. Hawley (Conn.), while defending the principles of civil-service, said that its practice bad been attended with glaring Incompetency. Mr. Stewart (Nev.) regarded the civil-service commission as an "office brokerage establishment." , The Massachusetts'senators—Messrs. Hoar and Lodge—defined the law. Mr. Turple (Dem., Ind.) spoke at considerable length in advocacy of the election of United States senators by the popular vote,. detailing the uncertainties and frequent scandals attending the, present method of choosing senators. • ;— Iron-Ore Fool Dissolved. Cleveland, 0., March 24.—After several postponements, the muoh-talked- of meeting of the Bessemer'Iron association, known as the iron ore pool, was held here Tuesday. The meeting was fruitless of results, for It was decided that no further effort to reach an agreement would avail, and the as-? soclation was formally dissolved. A meeting of the producers of Bessemer ore of the old Mesaba range will be held, and it is the general opinion that a pool of .their Interests Will be effected,'even though thjs is not certain. It is thought that one serious effect of the breaking up of the ore association will be the reduction In the wages of labor, which in some cases has already taken place. Strikes and labor riots are anticipated by some. Scovel Arrives In New York.

The south is prostrate. From the north comes the startling Information that everything la flooded. This deluge will roll down, adding to its volume and*power as it goes, and a torrent will break upon the weakened levees.. What will be the result can only be weakly guessed. Men, women and children, to Bay nothing of tbelr possessions, have only a few feet of crumbling earthwork between • them and destruction, and when the coming torrent reaches them disaster, will be their -fate. Reports from along the river are startling. The river rose one inch and a quar-. ter during th6 last twenty-four hours and continues to weaken the levees. A terrible windstorm and three-sixteenths rainfall occurred between 7-; 80 and 10 o'clock Monday night, and the wind blew a gale Tuesday. The situation across the river from Carruthersyllle grows more alarming every day. The loss of property and live stock is frightful. Even with the three relief tugs many have lost all their earthly possessions and barely escaped with their lives and families. If the river rises six Inches xriore it will sweep over the top of three- miles of levee north of Camithers'vllle like a cataract, unless the people are able to keep ahead of the rise, which they hope to-dor^ The-watertr'nowelghteeir che&~lab7mT"the •• crown"61"~the old levee. • .
