Representative Mills
Talks of Tariff Re-
Washington, Sept. 10.—Congress-
man Mills, of Texas, who will be Chair-
man of the Ways and Means Commit-
tee next winter, says the prospect of
reforming the tariff at the coming Con-
gress is good.
"We will have a better chance by
far," said he, "than in the last Con-
gress. The reduced Democratic ma-
jority will be more than compensated
for by the rise of tariff reform senti-
ment all over the country. See what
occurred in Ohio. So far as tariff is
concerned, there could not be a more
Democratic platform constructed than
that adopted at the Democratic Con-
vention of the State of Ohio."
"But what is to be done with Ran-
"He ought to be placed in the party
to which he belongs. If I were in the
President's place I would pretty soon
let Randall know where his place was.
No man who opposed my policy should
be recognized as belonging to my party.
The Speaker of the House has a duty
to perform. It will be Speaker Car-
lisle's duty—for, of course, Mr. Carlisle
will be the Speaker again—to see that
none but Democrats are put at the
head of any committees in the House
of Representatives. Especially it' will
be his duty to see that no opponent of
tariff reform and the other cardinal
principles of Democracy be placed at
the head of a committee of such power
and importance as the Committee on
Appropriations. If Randall does not
repent before Congress meets and sol-
emnly declare and engage to be a Dem-
ocrat for the future, he should be left
out among the Republicans in the
organization of the House.
''As soon as Congress meets the
Democrats will be ready to introduce
a measure which will embody the views
of the party on the subjects of internal
revenue and tariff reform. In previous
years we have made the mistake of
meeting unprepared for business, and
the consequence was that for weefcs
the time of Congress was absolutely
wasted. I expect that Mr. Cleveland
will call his' Secretan' of the Treasury
and a few leading Democrats into con-
sultation and prepare a measure which
will embody the principles of the party.
I have no doubt he is consulting Mr.
Carlisle on the subject now. He should
do as Polk did in 1846 when he sent
his tariff bill to Congress, and charged
his party with the duty of supporting
the policy of the Administration.
" There is another class of people
that the President will have to con-
sult, too, before Congress assembles,
and they are the uncertain ones. He
will no doubt, for instance, interview
Mr. Randall. The rank and tile of
genuine Democrats it is not necessary
to consult; he knows how they stand,
but he should certainly come to an un-
derstanding with Randall to find how
he is going to stand, and treat him
Texas Finances.
Austin, Texas., September 3.—The
Texas Treasury is again fat with funds
the total cash balance aggregating
$1.350,000, including $830,000 of general
revenue and over $200,000 school fund.
The assessments of over 100 counties
so far received show an increase over
last year of 900.000,000 in taxable val-
ues, and it is estimated that the in-
crease in tee State will be 18,000.000
or 20,000.000.
