May 12.—Tlj? of the senate amendments to the civil appropriation bill waa fln- iehed by the house Tuesday and the bill sent to a conference. President Cleveland's forest reservation order was the subject of much debate, and the house voted not to concur in the «enaf.e amendment to annul the_ order with the understanding that the conferees Ehould arrange an amendment which would hate the same effect. The most Interesting debate was on the appropriation of f 50,000 to improve Pearl harbor in the Hawaiian islands, which was rejected by a vote of 85 to 58. Mr.'HHt (111.), past and prospective chairman of the committee on foreign affairs, earnestly urged the Importance 'of taking steps to confirm the title of this government to the harbor in view of the senate 'proposal to abrogate the Hawaiian treaty." Mr. Cannon replied to Mr. Hitt, suy- ing that this government was in no danger if congress did not make the appropriation at this session. The harbor had been granted to the United States absolutely, for all time, he &ald, and was as much our property aa any harbor on the Pacific-coast, The item was opposed by Mr. Sayers ', because, he said, as soon as Pearl harbor had b6en improved the government would be called on to expend several millions to fortify it. Instead of lookr ing abroad for objects of legislation congress should look to'the relief of its own people. . Mr. Bayers warned congress that the next step in line with the proposed policy would, be annexation. He warned them not to be frightened by the report that England would take possession of the islands. Comparatively ffew Republicans wore present, and the'Yote.waajnearlyi_a^iiai;^ -ty one:" Half a^ ^ozen^peniocratF and •JPopulista, including CummingB (N. T.), 'Tate (Ga.), King (Utah), and Populists Simpson and Ridgely (Kan.), voted to > -concur, and about a dozen Republicans, .-among them Cannon, Hilborn, Parker, Moody (Mass.), Broderick (Kan.), Bromwell (Ohio), Linney (N. C.), voted not to concur. The Pearl harbor amendment was^ent to conference. ;* DINGUS Y IS INTERVIEWED. Criticise* the TarlO BUI a« Amended by 1 the Senate Committee. (Washington, May 12.—Chairman Dingley of the ways and means com- mltee, whose name is borne by the new tariff bill,'was requested to' give some statement as to the probable additional revenue that would be yielded ^fle first year by the senate tariff bill, as 1 well as by the house bill, and he spoke as follows: Mil recommended by the senate finance committee (abqut 706) appear to be multitudinous, yet .about 200 of them are mainly verbal — such as substituting o for u, leaving about 500 which change rates. This is about the number of amendments to the McKln- ley bill adopted by the senate of 1890, and of these remaining 500 a large proportion involve nothing of consequence. There are, however, many amendments which are important, not only on revenue but other grounds. "The effect of these amendments, as a whole— outside of the amendment Imposing a duty on tea for two years and a half and the amendment increasing the Internal revenue tax on beer'-44~centB-a,-barTel for 'the same period, and the increase proposed on tobacco and cigarettes — is to produce .leas revenue than would be yielded by the house bill. • "The ways and means committee expressly said that while there could be no question that .the house bill would In any event yield "sufficient revenue to carry, on the government, and leave a surplus the second year of its opeF- ntion— which nobody even now contradicts-7-and probably .sufficient for the first year if it coujd be promptly put in force, yet if there should be a delay in its enactment beyond 'May 1,' anticipatory importations would jn- evitabjy cause a serious inroad ,in, the prospective revenue for the first year. "If the ways and 'means committee had supposed that the bill would be delayed as long ad now seems probable, it Would have said that such delay would inevitably result in largely nullifying the revenue qualities of the "bill the first year through importations of woo}, sugar and other articles, before the new duties should go into force, unless such a "retroactive provision 8s was placed in the bill by the house could be maintained." ~t<r „ 44 JtfV'v Jar i .*, Cuban Uobftte Not May 12.— The Cuban occupied the entire attention of the senate Tuesday, the debate taking a wide range and at times becom- tog spirited when comparisons were Juada between the attltuUe of the former administration and the present eae on the subject of Cuba, The de- fcsto finally went over until today.
