THE COMI'KOMTSK MKARURE. Miiy .S.— For tlic lliira time tin: .scn:i.tc committeo on finance ni.s revised the Wilson tariff bill. The ali'.st ehiinges in the moosuvo are jompl.i;tod. and they are final .so far as tht comraitt.ee is concern ud. They include all the so-called "compromise" iniendnionts which have been agreed ipoti. Must of them are in the nature of changes from ad valorem to specific dutius. This is a radical change of tho provisions of the Wilson bill. That measure changed most of the duties from specific to ud valorem, the McKiuley aw being mainly specific duties throughout. The specific duties im- losed by tho amended bill range from 15 to 30 per cent, lower than tho cor- •esponding duties imposed by the Mc- \inley law. The latest changes which lave been agreed upon as a. result of ,he compromise are generally in the direction of. higher rates than were at Irst reported by the finance committee.

Decision of the Jury in the Case of the Comtnonwealers, All Guilty of Carrying Banners Contrary to Law—Coxey and Browne Guilty, Also, of Trespass. KKI.KASED OX $500 HAII. WASHINGTON, May 8.—After Con- pressman l j cnce (Neb.) had been heard indcfunse of Cox<;y, JJrowne and Jones, iind District Attorney Jierney had closed for the prosecution, the jury at !2:5.'jp. m. retired. At 3:40 it returned with its verdict, wliicli w:is as follows: Co.\ey lirowue and Jones were found guilty on the first, charge, that of carry in ff banners in the Capitol grounds contrary to law. On the sucond charge, that of trespassing on the crass, Coxey and Jirowuu were found guilty and Jones ivas acquitted. Pending motion for a new trial the defendants were released on bonds of 5500 each. TIio Ju<lK<)'» Charge- In his long charge to the jury Judge Miller told them that they were simply tryiug the defendants under what was known as a police regulation passed by congress. Congress had the right to pass these regulations, and the people had no right to dictate to congress how it should transact its business. All believed In liberty, but unrestricted liberty was the worst thin* in the world, and this law was simply a restriction and it should be obeyed. Hl» Camp A Menace. WASHINGTON, May 8.—The health officials of the district have submitted a report to the commissioners to the effect that the camp now occupied by Coxey's army is a menace to the health of thu inhabitants o£ Washington, and recommends in the strongest terras that immediate steps be taken to have it yacatod.. Coxey will probably be ordered to move the camp at once. Coicj-n Future. Representative Hudson (Kan.), who \va* Coxu.v's counsel before the police court, authorizes the statement that Coxey proposes leaving Washington witli his followers as soon as he secures a hearing from one of thu two houses of congress. Mr. Hudson s;iys that Coxey lias uo allilialion with the other commonweal forces that are now journeying to Washington. H« has uo correspondence witli them and does not know them or their purposes. He will not attempt apain to speak- from the steps of the capitol nor will he attempt in uny way to contravene the laws. The house committee on labor will probably give Coxey a hearing on- his bills on Thursday. IN THE SENATE. Allen 1 . Cow InYC.tlgi.tion Resolution Again UOMI Over. WASIII.VOTON, May8.—In the senate the credentials of John F. Gear as senator-elect from the state of Iowa, to succeed Senator Wilson, whose term expires March 4, 1885, were presented by Senator Wilson, read and laid on the table. At 11:30 a. in. Senator Harris (dem., Tenn.) moved to proceed to the consideration of the tariff bill. At the same moment Senator Allen (pop., Neb.) who had offered a resolution Monday in regard to the arrest of Coxey »nd his two subordinates, and which resolution had gone over, rose to claim precedence for it, but consented to the matter going over until Wednesday, on condition that it would then occupy the same position it now did. With that understanding Senator Harris' motion was put and agreed to, und thereupon the tariff bill was takeii up for consideration and Senator Hoar (rep., Mass.) addressed the senate in opposition to it—this beinR the opening of the sixth week's debate upon the measure.
