furiously Attacked and Vigorously and Teller In the Elenatu Express Tuem Mlven Fornlnat Gag a Temlencv to Forget Dignity In Criticising the Straying Statenmen Getting Back to Their Dutien WASHINGTON CITY Aug was inuch talk in both houses of congress yes terday so much in the house that it occu ple 1 the wh ole time TJie senate did bet ter for it got through with nineteen pages of the tariff bill The first matter brought up in the senate was a resolution calling for information as to the accident by which she SaultSte Marie canal was made useless It was stated that the closing of the canal was costing the commerce of the nation petday The feature of the debate was the reflections indulged in on the Inaction of the house by Cockrell who sneered at that body as the business branch of congress repeating the re mark several times the foundation for the sneer being the fact that the senate had passed a bill providing for a new lock at the Soo which the house had not yet acted upon It appeared during the do bate however that this inaction of the house had nothing at all to do with the repair of the present lock which pro oeedlng as rapidly as possible with abun dant moans Called Down ly the thulrman Payne also animadverted upon while the Republicans generally depre anted this kind talk the presiding the close of the debate that he had observed with regret the growing tendency to allude in terms of iieverlty and disparagement to the pro iioedings of the other house of congress It was a violation ot the fundamental prin ciples of parliamentary law to refer in ono house to what was done or said in the other house He hoped that the senate in the preservation of its own dignity and in the protection of its own immunity fro recrimination would observe those rul and refrain from such allusions in th future Points Made Then the tariff bill came up and in to course of a discussion Edmunds illui trated a remark by Vance to the effiei that one of his arguments was an o story by an anecdote of a thief who whe told that one of the tea comraandmeni was Thou shall nob steal said tba was an old story and Vance retorted I the amusement of the Democratic side that protectionists had got to the poin where they did not even make an excus for stealing Later Edmunds aud Dawes having denied the correctness of But lers quotation of testimony from Mr Tobey a New England manufacturer to the degradation of American labor i New England Butler sent foithe vo ume of hearings before the house com m it too of ways and means and read ex tracts from it showing that on three SOD arate occasions Mr Tobey had made us of that precise expression Plumb In Favor of Going Slow Blair having suggested ths adoption o a rule that would shut off so much talk Plumb said that so fur as he knew th western people were not specially hungrj for tariff legislation He admitted that the tariff bill ought to pass bat it was bettei not to pass a tariff bill than to pass on that was not right If it was meant tba the senate should have a rule to cut off d bate that would be a perversion of legis lative power and a blow at free instltu ttons He had never heard from auy other interest than the manufacturing iu terest a demand for increased tariff duties and if that statement was heret ten he wished to add to it by saying tha in his judgment if tho Republican plat form of 1888 had been supposed to mean tariff revision by an increase of duties result of the election would have been different Teller Jliieo Drives with riuiub Teer said that he did not yield to auj r in his devotion to the proteotiv system which he believed essential to the prosperity of the American people But he did not share in the view of the senator from New Hampshire as taken from one of the leading newspapers of the country that there had been any unnecessary de lay in the discussion of the bill He was prepared to resent vigorously and as ef flciently as he could any change of the rules for the purpose of hastening the passage of the tariff bill or any other bill Several Democratic senators observed that is right A feature of the voting was that on several Democratic motions to reduce duties Manderson Plumb Pad dock and Ingalls voted aye different times cur lanttu enjoy tne of our climate throw in their lot with onrs In termarry in our families He closed as follows I appeal to the Christians who kneel with us at the same altar I appeal to the brave men who recognize sincerity Bn 1 bravery Behind you I appeal to the living people of the north Give us your confidence we will deserve it we do de serve it and he who says otherwise does not know us or does not apeak the truth of us The Ta klnit Off of CUjton Boutelle of Maine said that he had no desire to attempt any defense of the speaker from the kind of remark which had been made from certain sources to day The focus of the attack of the gen tleman from Kentucky had been the gen eral election bill Tho aspersions hurled upon the speaker and the Republican j house the first house which had arisen to the plane of duty ln enacting legislation which would enable every citieen to per form a citizens duty would be accepted by the people as this highest form of pub lic eulogy Applause He denounced the election methods of the southern states directing his remarks principally to the ClaytonBreckinridge case There were Bontelie siiid in his district a num ber of Democrats who always vote against him but their votes were always counted and his antagonist was never as sossinatel like a dog in his tracks Ap plause on the Republican side PARTISAN TALK IN THE HOUSE A Field Day for Oratorical Attack and Defense The trouble began in the house as soon as the session convened The speaker was absent and Payson occupied the chair Rogers of Arkansas began with a com plaint that Speaker Reed had on several occasions taken him off the floor and then proceeded with if anything a more bitter attack on Reed than that of Bynum He intimated his belief that the speakers head contained more gall than brains and said ho had bulldozed the house It was suggested by a Republican that he would be a good man in the south when Rogers retorted that he would not bull doze in Arkansas whereupon Allen of Michigan said They kill such people down there Rogers concluded by saying to the speaker that the people cursed and despised him Henderson of Iowa Tnlks Henderson of Iowa defended the speaker and contended that Rogers had a long way up to reacts before he would attain the altitude of the man he attacked He then went on to tell what the house had done in the way of legislation and in this connection said it had passed an election election bill and not a force bill as its enemies took pleasure In calling it It sought to gag the right of no citiien or to do no citizen north or south auy wrong It simply provided that every man blnck or white strong or weak rich or poor should be safe u ndar the flag of his country to exercise the funda mental powers of an American citisen Applause j an Appeal Breckinridge of Kentucky then took tho floor and after denouncing the election bill as infamous iniquitous arid prac tically declaring that it could not be en forced in the south proceeded to invite the people of the north to build up PROCEEDINGS IN CONGRESS The Senate Reduce Duties on China anil House Talks WASHINGTON Cray Aug sen ate

progress whatever with entire day being fipsnt in speechmaking Rogers of Arkansas mado a long speech virulently attacking the methods and manners and rulings of Speaker Reed and Breckinridge

of labor covering the year 1889 has just appeared in print It is of unusual importance because it is devoted to a resume and tabulation of the lockouts and boycotts for the five years 188589 their various forms of manifesta tion with cauaea results and to both employers and employed The inves tigation of strikes as summarized in the report has covered 334 distinct trades and industries and the number of ments whftch have been or ad dressed has covered a total of TUB DIoney Value of Having given a survey of the methodi employed in gathering labor statistics and a lengthy dissertation upon the nature of strikes as well as extracts of the strike rules of various trades Commissioner Peck says The strikes in all trades and for all causes in the five years 188599 as respec tively detailed in reports of this bureau include 9381 reported on strike of these 4433 were successful 1434 compromised making 5800 to be classed as successful 3408 unsuccessful were pending in fifty establishments at the close of the report The persons engaged numbered 338926 Ttife reported losses in wages were expenses in conducting strikes The estimated gains for one working year were 55S3337 and for the five years they were Feck Concludes That They Fay This does not include the piece trades such as printers thoemakers and cigar makers iu which large gains were made but could not be estimated Loss to em ployes from all causes to 11869335 From this return it will be seen that the gains go near to balance the actual cost of strikes and loss to employes The loss of wages over is only estimated not aotual and so is uncertain and may be to a large amount only a workers displacement with employment elsewhere If however the 88000000 wasa positive loss the gain in wages would be a strong offset On the whole the strike pays for in three years the sum of all losses would be recovered and the advance The Absentees Getting Dnck to Work WASHINGTON CITY Aug a re sult of the resolution which passed

bers indicate that many more absentees are coming and the prospect is fair for the attendance of a quorum and the trans action of considerable business during the week rates maintained Settlement of Wage Disputes Concerning the mode of settlement of strikes Commissioner Peck advauces the following The settlement of disputes by arbitration is not a new idea it is as old as society The French have had their conseils des prudhommes for over a cen tury Whether differences over so vitally Dressing a matter as wages can be settled satisfactorily by the flat of a third party is open to question andean only be de cided by trial and experience How can KEMMtER TO DIEWEDNESDAY WItneuM All IniItm To Prcnat Tneaday Nlnht Annum N Y Aug present indications William Kummler will be executed between midnight and daybreak tomorrow morning Warden Durston said yesterday afternoon that he had sent invitations to the outoftown witnesses Friday afternoon before be took his hur ried trip to New York amd that these wit nesses were to be at the prison at 7 oclock Tuesday evening It doeti not follow nec essarily that the execution will occur Wednesday morning It may be deferred for another twenty four hours But Mr Duraton has stated several times since sentence was passed upon Kemmler that it was his intention to fix the hour of exe cution as early iu the as could be done in decency So it is more than likoly that Wednesday morning will the end of Kemmler How Kemmler Hears Himoelf Kemmler eats heartily and sleeps well Sunday night he slept like a child Yes terday he ate three good meals and spend much of his time writing cards reading from his Bible and talking with his keep ers His spiritual advisers the Hev Dr Houghton and the chaplain of ha prison Dr Yates visited him during the day and spent more than an hour talking to him about the hereafter Ho was culm and re peated his professions of faith without np parent emotion He has heard nothing of the rumors in circulation without and while he realizes that this is his lasr week on earth he does not seem at all fearful of death Warden Dnrston Annoyed The fact that the name of Electrician Barnes of Rochester does not appear in Warden Duretons official list of those invited excites some comment The war den is thought to be much annoyed by the publication of an interview with Mr Barnes published yesterday Mr Dnrston has maintained a strict silence about the arrangements for the execution ami It is natural that he should be annoyed at the divulgence of the programme There are three electricians to be appointed how
