Washington, May 12.—The considsr- Rtioh of the senate amendments to the sundry civil appropriation bill was finished by the hottss Tuesday and the toil] Rent to a conference. President Cleveland's forest reservation brder -was the subject of much debate, and the house voted not to concur in the aenate smcndrnent to annul the. order with the understanding 'that the conferees eaould-arrange an amendment •which would have 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 53. Mr.'Hitt (111.), past and prospective •ihairman of the committee on foreign affaire, 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 repiiedlo Mr. H i tt, saying that this government was in no dqnger If congress'did not make the appropriation at this session. The harbor had been granted to the United States absolutely, for all tlme.'he &ald, and was as much our property aa any harbor on the Pacific 1 coast. The Item wae opposed by Mr, Bayers .because, he said, as soon aa Pearl harbor had been improved the government would be called on to expend several millions to fortify it. Instead of looking abroad for objects of legislation congress should look to'the relief of its own people. , Mr. Sayers watned 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 were •*y one. Half a dozen Democrats and Topuliuts,including Cummings (N. Y.), 'Tate (Ga.), King (Utah), and Popullstu Simpson and Ridgely (Kan.), voted to -concur, and about a dozen Republicans, •-among them Cannon, Hilborn, Parker, Moody (Mass.), Broderick (Kan.), Bromwell (Ohio), LJnney (N. C.), voted not to concur. The Pearl harbor amendment was sent to conference. :» PlNOLElf 18 INTERVIEWED. Crltlclicg the Tarlfl BUI BI Amended by 'the Senate Committee. •Washington, May 12.— Chairman .Dlngley of the ways and means com- mHce, 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 $& first year by the senate tariff bill, as 1 well as by the house, bill, and he ' ^__- . "While the,.amendments of the house bill ' reconimended by tho senate finance committee (abput 700) appear to be multitudinous, yet about 200 of them' are mainly verbal — such as amendingfthe spellJng-of 'asbestus' by substituting o for u, leaving about 500 which change ratea. This is about the number of amendments- to the McKin-^ ley bill adopted by the senate of 1890, and of these remaining 600 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 cents a, barrel for the same period, and ; the increase proposed on tobacco and cigarettes — Is to produce .less 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 la any event yield '• suflicient revenue to carry on the government, and leave a surplus the second year of Its operation— which, nobody even now contra- dicts4-and probably sufficient for the first year if 4t coujd be promptly" put in force, yet if there should be a delay in its enactment beyond 'May 1, anticipatory importations would in- evitabljn 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 aa now seems . probable, it would have said that such da- Jay would inevitably result in largely nullifying the revenue Qualities of the "bill the first year through Importations of wool,. sugar and other articles; before the new duUes should go into force, unless such a retroactive 'provision as was placed in the bill by the house could be maintained."
