Tillman established a telegraph censorship, placing several militiamen— the most intelligent that could be selected— in charge of both offices to supervise all messages offered.

Early in the day the governor summoned the governor's guards to the executive mansion.

He told them that they stood before the people of the state us disgraced, and thut he now wished to give them the opportunity to wipe the stain from their brow and to restore them to honor. He asked for some indications as to whether they would obey his orders, in which event their arms would be given back to them. As he made this assertion five of the men threw down their bayonets and were quickly followed by several others. Their captain begged them to desist and wait until the governor had finished. Gov. Tillman,. however, told them that their action was satisfactory, for he only wished to know exactly what their position was. He then said to thosp who remained that they could leave, but if they determined to obey orders to report to the state penitentiary. Tho remnant of tho company marched to their armory and in five minutes thereafter they had disbanded. Addressed by the Governor.

It Is enough for my present purboso to say that we have liberalized American markets, made them more accessible to tho traffic of the world, and, whllo not establishing free trade, wo have made trade freer und more even-handed between the manufacturer and the consumer. Uut over and above and beyond this wide and well known Held cf extortion and Injustice, H will be found from the schedules of thli bill that the tariff taxes now officially ascertained and paid under existing law on the wants, necessities and dally consumption ot ttio laboring men. women and children of tho United States have been reduced more than »70,ooo,ooo per annum.

He denounced the enactment of tho McKinley law in 1890 ad a gigantic crime not only against every workingman and workingwoman in the United States, but also against every individual manufacturer and against all manufacturing interests. It was not so designed by its authors, but such was its real and inevitable character. The Sui-ar Schedule. Senator Voorhees defended tho ad valorem system as fairer, honester and more easily understood than specific duties. On the subject of tho sugar schedule he said: "Absolute free trade In sugar Is an attractive theme, hut no such thing has ever existed for a fling,e hour since tho organization of this government fi moderate duty has always been imposed on sugar and it has always been a stanch revenue support to the government. ••During tho present fiscal year ending June SO there will be paid by the treasury U2,390,000 as bounty to tho producers of sugar, and every dollar of this vast sum is first collected from those who plant corn, raise wheat and engage In all • tho various pursuits of labor. Nearly 130,000,000 of bounty money have . been handed over to the sugar- makers of the United States since tho law wont into operation, and each year the sum is rapidly Increasing. It was thought when the law wai under discussion that the bounty would not exceed (8,000,000 per year, but the stimulating Influence of such an enormous donation to the manufacturers of sugar was greatly underrated. If tuo law is to remain un- ropealod the time Is near at hand when it will confer as a mere gratuity more than (20,003,003 per year on a small fraction of our population engaged In no public service, but in their own private enterprises. Wlilnkv Not a Necessity. "In securing a sufficient revenue for the support of tho government with, as light a tax as possible on tho uecessarics of lifo, I have at all times earnestly favored an increased tax on whisky. I would bo glad to-day if the pending bill provided for a tax of 11.20 per gallon, instead of 11.10, as It does. Revenue raised from distilled spirits, tho purchase and consumption of which Is never a necessity of life, is a deep gratification to mo, and the fact that twenty millions of the surplus accruing under this bill will be furnished by the tax on whisky is n genuine joy to my mind. 1 have no hesitation in declaring, uphold as I am by the secretary of th« treasury and 1>y the commissioner of internal revenue, who havo bolh recommended every step when on this subject, that ono of the wisest, safest, moat useful and necessary provi- siontin the pending bill Is that increasing tho tax on distilled spirits and granting an extension of the time they may remain in bond without being driven out of tho country," Uphold, the Income Tax.
