; Washington, March SL—The ways and m*fttw eotnmittee held the floo* *lth their • ataendaient* to tha tariff bill from 10 Tuesday morning ta 4 o'clock la the afternoon. About thlrty- flVfc wera otered aad adopted. Among them was one admitting free of duty "books, scientific apparatus, charts) iftftr*, etc.." tor scientific and educational purposes. After that five mote pages of the bill were read, making twenty pages In all of the 162 pages of the bill. To-day the bill Is open for amendment Until 1 o'clock, an attempt to extend .the debate having failed, after which an hour on a side will be allowed to close. The -voting will begin at 3 o'clock. Democrats displayed a good deal of anxiety to get la an amendment to strike out the differential on sugar, tout they probably will be frustrated In this. The only motion they may be able to secure a vote on Is one -"JwiTWMmia.Ul^Utt-ihBtfictioS^^--^-— Mr. Cannon (rep., ill.) prefaced his remarks with the declaration that he waa for the pending bill. He thought there could well be a duty on hides, as the impression was deeply grounded in the west that a duty on hides would raise the price of cattle $1 a head. Mr. Slayden (dem., Tex.) proceeded to argue that a duty on hides would be of practical benefit to the .cattle raisers of the plains of Texas, Kansas and the . Dakotas, ' ' , Mr-Bell (pop., Ool.) warned the republicans that if they passed the bill, containing high duties, without imposing at least a revenue duty on hides, distinctly a product of the farm, they would regret it. Mr. Dingley defended the action of the committee. Weighing the balance . of advantages, he said, the committee ; decided' against a duty on hides. Our •- - tanning Industry was adjusted~tcr free hides, and it was decided that a duty on ihldea would not be of advantage-to the 'farmer, and would be a distinct' disadvantage to Our export, trade. Mr. Hepburn (Rep,, Iowa) then came forward with a vehement speech in favor of a duty on hides. Mr. Hepburn declared that the wool interests dwarfed In contrast with* the vast, cattle interests of the country. He demanded that the ways and means committee allow the sense.of the house to be taken on this .question, and affirmed With great posltiveness that every Republican from the west favored- a duty on 'hides. Mr. Brucker (Dem., Mich;) denounced the duty ot f 2 on lumber as robbery. It was free trade in labor and protection for the manufacturer.. . Mr. Dingley, in reply to a question,said that .nine-tenths of the amendments offered by tho committee had { been< suggested by members and of- ferea'afteFlnveBtlgatldn.

This policy was definitely resolved upon at a meeting of the republican members of the committee held Tuesdajr night. The enb-cujn- mittee, consisting of Representatives Orosvenor of Ohio, Tawaey of Minnesota, and Dalzell of PennsylvimJ*, which was authorized to report upoa the proposition, presented, such an amendment which they had written and their colleagues Instructed Mr. Qrosvenor to offer the amendment to-day In the house. There Is no doubt that it will be adopted by a party vote. The member^ of the sub-committee Investigated the question of the constitutionality and validity of the proposition personally, and secured opinions of able lawyers, among them the attorney-general of Ohio. /:. Thcrchlef:precedent^n^waieli tho committee relies to sustain its action is a decision of the Supreme court growing out of the Wilson act.
