C., Jan. 3.—A session of the ways and means committee opened with Representative Carter, of Montana, as a witness. He spoke in relation to sheep husbandry. He thought if there was no tariff on wool that that industry would be destroyed. Mr Shepard, a wool-grower of Texas, read a paper to prove that with sufficient protection the United States could raise all the carpet wool consumed in this country, jje wanted the same duty on all wool and said the wool growers of Texas were generally in favor of protection. Bon. William Lawrence, of Ohio, said he was one of the committee appointed by the National Wool Growers’ Association at its recent Washington convention to make some remarks as to the legislation which wool growers generally believed was required by sound public policy and justice. He addressed the committee on two subjects, proper duty on carpet wool, and on the provisions of a law necessary to secure honest admin- November average of yield per acre The variation fro&uthe current expectation of the last six months is not over one per cent.

Washington, Jan 3.—The senate committee on commerce. has received a report forom the chief engineers of the United States on the bill authorizing the construction of a bridge across the Mississippi at Clinton, Iowa. THE MONET MAY BB USED NOW. First Comptroller of the Treasury Matthews has decided that the 9100,000 appropriated by congress for surveying the land in South Dakota received from the Sioux Indians was available as soon as the Indians had signed the treaty, and that the surveying can go on without waiting for the proclamation opening the lands to settlement. REPRESENTATIVE KELLEY’8 AFFLICTION. The Star this afternoon published the following: Representative William D Kelley* of Pennsylvania, has prcbaoly been on the door for the last time. His 'with no beds, bedding or necessary con enfeebled condition wa* subject to much-    q71 ' comment at the opening of congress, but    That    ce^s    were a^owggg istration of the tariff law. It was safe to say the wool growers generally believed a sound policy required the imposition of such duty on so called carpet-wool as would, in due time, enable the American wool growers to produce all the wool required for consumption. Kither a protective policy should be abandoned and a policy of free trade adopted, or elee the protective policy be made effectual so aa to give the whole American market to home producers. Mr. Carlisle asked the witness a number of questions as to his views on taking the tax off of tobacco, alcohol used in the arts, sugar, etc He favored removing the tax from the first two articles, and regarding sugar, said it does not fall within the policy of the protective tariff for reason that for more than twenty years with protec Hon the sugar indus'ry has not been developed to supply more than ten per cent of the consumption of the country. We can, he said, develop the wool industry SCJ as to supply all the wool we waul. if necessary to save the protective system he would tax whisky to the full extent to which the law could be enforced. Hayne suggested, in order to save time and give other gentlemen an opportunity to address the committee that Lawrence s manusc'ipt be printed without being read. To this suggestion Lawrence assented with the condition that he mako a condensed statement orally of what his manuscript contained That clause was adopted and Lawrence went on with his remarks. He would purposely (he said) omit the tariff speech which he would like to maka in congress to the effect that adequate duty on wool and manufactured woolen goods, would not ultimately increase the cost at all because home competition would prevent unreasonable charges, while, if a protective policy were abandoned and all such products imported from abroad, the result would be, American people would be at the mercy of the foreign trusts and corporations Carlisle-—That argument reals on the assumption that homo industry would he aband med W’ttuH3—Yes, tho effect of tho tariff of 1833 has been to cut down vastly the numoer of our sheep and with free wool the wool industry would be practically abandoned in the United States. James Dobson, a Philadelphia carpet manufacturer, denied the correctness of many of Lawrence’s statements He argued the wool growers of the United Rtates would not and could not produce the quantity of carpet wool used in that industry, because where they received 91 50 for fleece of fine wool sheep, they would not receive twenty five cents for coarse wool sheep Mr Whitman, of Boston, president of the National Association of Wool Manufacturers, said the prevailing sentiment in the organization was for the maintenance bot not increase of the present duties. They would oppose any attempt to restrict the importation of for dgn wool because it would be impossible for wool manufactures to reduce all the goods necessary for home consumption unit ss they could have foreign wool. In reply to a question, Mr. Whitman said under no circumstances would free wool enable the manufacturers to make an impression on the foreign markets. He thought free wool would stimulate production and give manufacturers an opportunity to displace foreign products not used here, but he also thought the effect of free wool would be to diminish the pi ice of wool and consequently encourage sheep raisers. The moment we begin to take from the wool product any given amount of wool the price will be raised and wool will become considerably dear er than now. T. C Ssarch, the representative of the manufacturer’s club of Philadelphia, de dared himself in harmony with Whit man’s views. A statement to like effect made by W H. Folwell, a doth manufacturer of Philadelphia. He announced himself in favor of putting high duties on southern prod acts, sugar, rice, turpentine and peanuts and of having free whisky and free tobacco. He would tax sugar thai comes from abroad until we could supply the whole demand our selves. John F. Plummer of New York, said the country is suffering under a popular prejudice that better clothes can be got abroad than here, at the same price. He declared there was no country where a anan could get as good a suit of clothes for as little money as in the United States. THE AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The December repoit of the depart ment of agriculture contains a detailed statement of estimates of the principle cereals by states, including the area of the product and values. The reported area of corn is 78,319,651 acres, which represents an increase of two and one half per cent over the acreage of 1888. The wheat acreage is 38,123 859 acres, which shows that it is two and one-tenth per cent greater than the aggregate for 1888. The revision of the acreage gives a smaller area In Iowa, Nebraska.

Just below the rear of Judge Kelley’s jaw is a cancer, and it is spreading rapidly into the throat. So quickly has it worked that the afflicted man can speak only in whispers, and then not without pain. Judge Kelley is slightly improved tonight. Throat trouble is not a new development as he submitted to surgical operation for the removal of this growth in 1883, About a week ago the judge contracted a heavy cold which developed into a very severe case of intestinal catarrh accompanied by copious and obstinate diarrhoea, which has resulted in great weakness and general breaking down of his system. .

Mr. Harrison has adopted secretary Windom’s view about the matter He gocB even further than Wiadorn in his*approval of the projact, is impressed with its economic soundness as a f rinciple, believes in its beneficent effect upon the prosperity of the country, and regards it as a brilliant step toward the determination of the silver problem. Ro much he has not hesitated to say, and there is little doubt that he will express this opinion in a c »mmunication to congress at an early day, or he may determine to make his opinion known in some other way. A bill embodying the recommendations of the secretary will be submitted to congress very soon. It is likely to be offered simultaneously in both houses. Its fate in the house of representatives is problematic    I here is little doubt that the majority of republican senators and some of tho democratic members of the senate favor the bill, and it is likely to firs* pass that body. HAWK-EYE BURLINGTON, IOWA, SA AY MORNING, JANUARY 4, 1890. [Prick: 16 Cunts per IHVESTlflATHni OF DD FADE COUNTY FOOR HOUSE MASSIEST. A Rulable Condition of Things Discovered—Shameful Treatment of Insane Patients—Naked Creatures Confined in Loathsome Cells. Chicago, Jan. 3 —Some time ago the humane society of Wheaton, Du Page county, Illinois, made a complaint to Governor Fifer regarding the treatment of insane patients confined at Wheaton poor house on account of the overcrowded condition of the state insane asylum. A commission appointed by the governor began its investigation yesterday and heard many witnesses. Evidence was taken going strongly to prove the charges. These charges were in effect that two insane women were kept in zinc lined cells about seven feet square, remain filthy, that patients in their demented condition tore off th* ir clothing and were allowed to remain absolutely naked, and that in this condition other inmates of the poor house as well as employes of poor farm were allowed access to corridor and to stare at and jeer at unfortunates through the cell doors. It is further charged that such attention as these poor patients did receive was given them by male attendants, there being no female attendants employed at the poor house. One of the witnesses testified he had seen one of the women ft d. Her hands were tied behind her and as the food was placed on the fl jor she was obliged to get down and eat like a dog. It was in evidence that aside from the insane patients the house was well managed. The management admitted that the insane patients were not as well cared for as they should be, but claimed it was the best that could be done as there were no conveniences for taking care of the insane. lost She was commanded by Caf! Maurice Franco, sad had a crew ofl men besides five passengers. rorttlMfw TIie Tear’* Record Chicago, Jan. 3.—The Railway Age rn ita forthcoming issue will say: The year of 1889 makes a much less favorable showing in respect to foreclosure tiles than its immediate predecessor, although on the other hand, its record is mach less discouraging than the threp years preceding 1888* A table is appended showing that during 1889 twenty-five roads were scil under foreclosure, bav ing an aggregate mileage of twentymine hundred and thirty miles, and a tots! funded debt and capital stock of 815,060 PETITION FOB THE SALE OF BO: Washington, Jan. 3 —Attorney eral and Secretary Windom gave a ing at the department of justice3 af lemoon to Judge Wilson, of W ton, and Judge Story, of Boston, Banting the Union Pacific railroad pany, in support of their petition I secretary of the treasury for the s the Ucited S .ates bonds, now in the ing fund of that company aid the re ii ment of the proceeds in other paying a high rate of interest.

Columbia, S C., Jan. 3.—Pursuant to a call issued a few days ago by promi-ment negroes for a meeting of the leading colored men of the state to discuss the recent wholesale lynching in Barnwell, a representative gathering of colored men was called to order last night in this city. Twenty six out of thirty counties were represented. Resc lutiona were adopted condemnirg the taking of human life in acy other way than in the vindication of honor aud integrity of the state as odiua to all just and upright men. Such action was only justifiable when done for the preservation of human Afe and the sanctity of the home. They advise the members of their race to remain quidt and let t^e authorities vindicate the law. A second set of resolutions dwelt upon the devotion of the negroes to the whites during the war, condemned the newspapers for advocating the separation of the races, denied the slightest danger of inspection of the negroes in Barnwell or any other part of the state, strongly advised the negroes to abandon Barnwell county and other lawless sections and move to a state where the laws are observed. quietly. When he reached New York, New Year’s eve, he was at once arrested. The man is but little over thirty years of age and very handsome.

Bloomington, 111., Jan. 3—On the night of December 24, M G Patterson, a contractor of Decatur, Illinois, who was erecting new buildings at the Soldiers’ Orphans’ home near this city disappeared with 9800, and it was believed he had been waylaid and murdered. The murder theory is exploded, and it turns out that he fled because of financial enlargements. Suits aggregating nearly $30,000 have#been begun against him by creditors in different cities, and many more are expected to be begun. ALLEGED SWINDLER ARRESTED. Chicago, Jan. S.—B. F. Thomas, formerly of Iowa, has been arrested by the United States authorities for using the mails for swindling purposes. He opened an office at 325 Dearbourn street and sent out confidential circulars of a travelers’ employment bureau, in which for a remmiltance of one dollar each he guaranteed positions to traveling salesmen, with salaries ranging from $1,000 to $1,-800. Thomas was taken in custody by by Captain Stewert and gave bail before Commissioner Hoyne in the sum of $500. H« Tiled to Tell Where He Came From but wee ChoKcd cfi. Chicago, Jan. 3.—McGinty came up from the bottom of the sea yesterday, wearing his best suit of clothes. Mike’s long absence from red liquor and coal holes made him lightheaded, and with two companions, John Fee and George Lacy, he cbmmitted the mistake of coming to the North Bide and raising Cain. Officers Hirsh and Bell recognized McGinty by the description his clothes recently published, and took him and his companions into camp and the east Chicago avenue police station, on the charge of disordily conduct. This morning the Cheveaiier McGinty was the subject of great admiration in the police court before Justice Kersten. His glossy tile, white gUk tie and blue checked shirt, fur collared overcoat, loud-check trousers and patent-leather shoes, in fact, “the whole tout enstm hie,’’ as officer Hirsh expressed it, evoked as loud commendation as the checks in his pants. "Mr. McGinty,” asked the court, rn his most sauve 95-and-coats-voice. “the officers tell me you were raising a disturbance last night. Where did you come from? You don’t look like a Kmzie street dude, somehow ” ‘'Your Worship, I just came from the botttom ” “Hire, here!” cried the court, “are you the McGinty gag I’ve heard about? Twenty five dollars and costa; don’t say another word; get away from here or Til make it a hundred! ’ McGinty fell back in great haste and pa5d his fine in a hurry, sadly rtfl’cling how much cheaper it would have been to come from the Siutli Side instead of from the bottom of the sea. The other prisoners escaped with $5 fines. ALL EYES ON PARNELL. O’SHEA’S LIBEL SUIT OCCOPYBS THE AT-IEHH0H OF POLITICIANS QI LORDO!

Influenza is on the increase but no deaths are reported. El Tiempo contains an editorial on a government loan negotiated in London for the Tehuantepec railway claiming that the tame is s part of the Eag-liah plan to have a port on the gulf and transcontinental railroad to offset the American plans. A VESSEL cur IN TWO. Lindon, Jan. 3.—The Tory paper* are still gloating over the awkward entanglement in which Mr. Parnell finds himself, and the floods of virtuous indignation which fill their columns are impressive and instructive reading. It is generally understood between partisan journals in England that slips of this kind co mini ted by political opponents are to be left unnoticed, but in this instance personal malignity has over ridden custom and discretion, and the whole unfortunate matter is presented to the public accompanied by comments of the most cutting character. They do not appear to be de terred by the fact that the House of Lords has on its roll several peers who are now in foreign countries on account of being concerned in a scandal to which this of Mr. Parnell’s is aa nothing, and that there are some uncommonly queer members of their party in the house of commons. Captain O’Shea is without doubt receiving substantial encouragement from several well known conservatives, and there Is little doubt that this persecution of Mr. Parnell will be continued to the bitter end. The manifest object i« to drive him out of parliament, and, if possible, out of the country. The conspirators are bold, wealthy and unscrupulous, and the ingenuity with which they are making their attacks betrays a master hand at the helm. The denial of the Irish leader’s mother that the sum subscribed for her relief has ever reached her, with the natural inference that it has been stolen by the “Patriots” on the way, is msde the most nf and retailed with an assumed indignation that is very easily penetrates There is scarcely any doubt that if O’Shea’s suit develops any proof of infidelity with the corres pondent, the husband of the woman will be urged to make a charge of adultery against Mr. Parnell that if sustained, will either land him in jail or compel him to leave the country. The same parties who engineered the Pigott con-spiiacy are at the head of this plot, and and the failure of the Times forgery schtjme has only the more embittered them against those who excited against them. The contempt of humanity drove one of the supporters of these charges to his death, besides causing the suicide of the miserable Pigott, and crippled for a time the resources of the greatest journal in Europe. It will be a struggle to the death, and Irish society will be asked by these self constituted moralists, whether it can further recognize an intruder upon the tenets of the social code and a violator of the most sacred family ties.

A Virginia Mob waiting to Intercept a 8her!fir and Two Prisoner*, New York, Jan. 3,— A Roanoke, Virginia, special says:    In Montgomery county, about two months ago, two white girls, aged twelve and fourteen years, were criminally assaulted. Subsequent developments fastened suspicion upon a man named Akers and a ten-year-old boy named Cooper. They were lodged in jail about three weeks ego. An attempt to lynch them was prevented by Judge Junking of the county court, who hid them in the woods until they could be returned to Lynchburg. The second attempt was frustrated by removing them to 8alem On Monday they were taken to Christianburg for trial. On Wednesday Akers was sentenced to twenty years id the penitentiary. The people were dissatisfied with the verdict and would have lynched the prisoners that night had not Judge Junking removed the two from the j ail. He t elegraphed the mayor of Roanoae yesterday morning that the sheriff and prisoners had left, and asked that they be protected from violence, but up to a late hour last night the sheriff and hip charges had not arrived, and it is feared that they have fallen victims to mob violence Men from Montgomery were arriving in Roanoke all day yesterday, and last night were watching every avenue of approach. Sentries were also posted at all the intervening stations on the railroad, and men were patrolling the country roads. If the sheriff can reach this city his men will be safe, but it is feared that he will never get them here alive. Special to THI Haw*>Bt*. Keokuk, Jan. 3.—Peter Tigue had a good time J tiring the holidays and wound un in the cooler where he proceeded Wednesday night to have a well-defined and remarkable case of delirium tremens. He didn’t seem to bebothered much with rats or snakes, but his great idea was that he had committed murder. About 1:15 o’clock he knocked on the door of his cell and called tor Marshal Trimble. To that official he remarked that he did not want hung without a trial. Trimble yras considerably at this remark, and on further ing the prisoner, learned that he was laboring under the hallucination that his young wife and child had been murdered aid that he was charged with bein at the murderer. He affirmed that a scaffold was being built in the yard and that he was to be hung in a short time. Dr. Fegers has rendered medical assistance, but has been unable to restore the un fortunate man to his senses. At no time has Tigue been violent. It was learned subsequent to his incarceration, that for three weeks Tigue had been on a spree and his mental perturbation is attributed to the effects of alcoholic drinks. It is a sad case, as the unfortunate man is less than thirty years of age and has a wife and a young child dependent upon him. A Fetal Betire** acddeit.

Columbus, Jan. 3.—There is no material change in the senatorial situation to-day. It is reported that all candidates for speaker, with the exception of Hysell, have withdrawn. This has given an increased life to the Brice boom for the senate. Hysell is recognized as a speakership candidate of the Brice element. An unconfirmed report states that the democrats will elect Marquis lieutenant governor over LampsoD. and run Governor Campbell against Brice for the senate. A great deal of work has been done. An effort was made early in the day to crease a sensation in a business way by trying to force Calvin S Brice to a settlement in connection with the old Lake Erie and Western railway. Brice was president of the Lake Erie and Western before its reorganization after the receivership and still holds the position. His callers were V. C. Ward and C. C. Grassman, local ticket brokers. Ward accosted Brice and after inquiring into his business relations, preseated a roll of old coupon tickets, nearly four hundred in all, which he said had been repudiated and demanded settlement. He said he proposed to hold Brice responsible, and the latter replied he knew nothing about it, but if he had a claim about which there was a dispute, he should bring suit and proper settlement would follow. The friends of Brice pay little attention to the performance and are proceeding with the business before them. Desperate Died of Burglar* at Tran* ton, N. J. Trenton, N. J , Jan. 3 —The dead body of Mrs. Kniffia, wife of Dr. Arthur 8. Kaiffio, was found on the flier of her bedroom this morning. Near by lay the unconscious figure of a young lady who had been visiting the family. Miss Purcell was finally revived. She said during the night she was awakened by Mrs Kniffin who, screaming that there were burglars in the house, Miss Purcell sprung from bed to call help, but was seized by a man who applied the drug to her face. Mrs. Kniffin was seized by another man who chloroformed her. This was the last Miss Purcell remembered till resuscitated by the physicians. Miss Pursell had almost entirely recovered from her prostration this evening. 8he still insists on the truth of her story of the burglary, although the police can find so little to justify this theory, they are not looking lor the alleged burglars. Dr. Kniffen reached Trenton from Broadway to-night and was at once taken under the escort of detectives to the police station and subjected to a pri vate interview. The police say the doctor is not under arrest. SHR WANT/* MILLIONS. Mr*. MeMurdo Buev Hie Portuguese ■ Govermmeut tor 83,500,000.
