Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - January 11, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BUELINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: Jinn, 18*9.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, SATURDAY MORNING, J ANDARY ll, 1890. [Price: 16 Cents per W HAY BE COOKED BY OHFOBESEEN C0M8TAHCES. CIB- Democrats Have a Majority Four on Joint Ballot, and TheyOre Shaky—Dakota and Montana Politics — Capital News. Columbus, O, Jan. IO.—The Columbus Despatch says this afternoon: Notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Brice received the unanimous vote of the caucus, he may be defeated for senator owing to I be fact that the democrats have only five of a majority on joint ballot, one of which is Knapp, of Defiance, who is now dead, and Lawler, of Franklin, who is not expected to live through the day. and three of which majority, Munson, of Licking; Kounts, of Shelby, and Smith, of Franklin, did not attend the caucus. It will be readily seen if these three members fail to support the nominee of the caucus the state of Ohio may be represented by a republican in the senate. MURAT halstead's comment. Chicago, Jan. IO.—Murat Halstead is in the city, and in an interview with the Evening Journal, he says of the nomination of Calvin Brice for the Ohio senatorship that it has put the democrats in a hole. “It is simply a tribute to the money power," continued the field marshal, settling himself in a comfortable easy-chair “A tribute to boodle, not brains. Having done so, having openly indorsed a representative of such a power, how can the democrats ever again pose before the country as the opponents of mc nopolists, trusts and grasping millionaires. Who is Brice and what did he ever do? He is a mao, intellectually, who would be greatly honored by a nomination to the legislature, and yet they name him for the United States senate; for what reason? Because he has money He made that money, I have been told, by robbing the Vanderbilts I don’t know of just how much worth such a feat is to the state. Perhaps. however, he did not rob them for th* Vanderbilts certainly have a good niece of proberty in the Nickel-Plate. However, that is the way he got his mony. He now lives in New York, and is the representative solely and entirely of monopolies, trusts and millionaires. He is not an Ohioan, and when he comes lo the state his headquarters is in a perambulating saloon. I mean by that his private car." “How long since he lived there?" “I can’t say, but one thing about ten years ago. He lives in New York and h HH a residence there. When he presents his credentials to the senate, Mr. Edmunds will rise and say that they are not legal because according to the constitution of Ohio a man to be a United States senator must be an inhabitant of the state. Brice will claim that he is an inhabitant, but a man can't be an inbab itant of two states, and by way of reply Senator Edmunds will pick up Brice’s indorsements on the New York aqueduct bonds. When he signed them he swore that he was an inhabitant of New York. lie has not changed his place of habitation since Such a point will stick, and Brice may have serious difficulty in holding his seat, oven if he secures it. He has no right to it and he should not have it. Why, it is simply giving New York three senators." WOHLD’8 if Alii LOCATIONS. til* TM* Sonata (Joiumllt** Liston to Claim* of tM* Capital City. Washington, I), C , Jan. IO.—The senate committee on the exposition heard the arguments to-day in fayor of Washington as the site for the world’s fair in 1892. Secretary Anderson of the board of promotion presented a statement showing that the board had received assurances of co-operation from forty-six governors of states and territories. He pointed out on a map a number of available sites within the city limits, and showed that on occasions of great national interest this city had been able to provide accommadations and means of traasportatioD for 100,000 people. He urged that the exposition buildings could be used afterward by the government, and thus a saving will be eff ected. Other speakers urged the various attractions of the city. The discussion of the world’s fair bill by the house committee on foreign affairs resulted in bringing forward a pro position which, it is suggested, may aid iu the selection of the site for the fair by the house. The committee has already decided that it will report a bill, leaving blank the name of the city where the fair will be held. But it is feared that if it goes into the house in that shape, and without some arrangement in advance to govern the method of selection of a site, no agreement can ever be arrived at.

At a slimly attended democratic eau-cua this morning the usual resolutions were adopted for naming a compaign committee, namely that each state and territory having a democrat reprosanta-tive shall select one to represent it in the committee. No formal method was provided for the selection of members of the committee from the states whose delegations were solidly republicans, but the the usual rule will be followed allowing the committee to fill vacancies by election. _ DRAPED IN MOURNING, Th* Hen** Adjourns Out of R«*p**t for th* Lat* J ode* K*ll*y.

Immediately after reading the journal, O’Neill of Pennsylvania, announced the death of] his colleague, Judge Kelly. After paying a touching tribute to his memory, he offered a resolution that appropriate services be held in the house to-morrow noon and that the usual committee be appointed to attend the funeral. After the adoption of the resolution the house adjourned as a mark of respect. GRNKRAL WASHINGTON NEWS.

The president’8 visitors this morning included the entire Chicago world’s fair delegation headed by Senator Farwell and Mayor Cregier. NORTH DAKOTA LEGISLATURE. Strict Economy til* Spirit of til* GatM-•rlBS--Tb* Per Diem Question. Bismarck, N. D., Jan. IO.—In line with the suggestions for economy made by the governor, an attempt was made in the house to designate February 6 as the day of final adjournment, but with out success. The bill establishing a school for deaf mutes at Devil’s Lake passed the house. A resolution was introduced in the senate instructing the president to sign vouchers for the per diem of members during the holiday recess, but it was defeated and the question of the legality of collecting such pay was submitted to the attorney general for his opinion. The economists hold that such pay cannot be drawn. _ SOUTH DAKOTA SALOONKEEPERS Special to The Ha wk-Et*. Des Moines, Jan. IO.—The condition of affairs to-night ^regard to the settle ment of the organization of the legislature is very complicated. The republicans talk very confidently of getting the speaker and everything else. They expect the independents to come over to their side and vote for their caucus nominees, and in reward they will be given the committee chairmanship. The republicans are determined to carry their point, even if it takes all summer. Candidates for the speakership are not so numerous as yesterday. A great many new members are non-committal, and say they want for a nominee a men who can bn^lected, a man who can draw the necessaw vote from the opposition. There were about six candidates before but it has now narrowed down to three and the action of the caucus tomorrow as tojthe policy to be pursued will no doubt have great influence in turning the speakership fight. In democratic circles this is not much of a question but one man, Holbrook, has been brought out prominently and he will very likely be the nominee. The contest for the republican nomination for clerk of the house took a new turn this evening by Hon. J. W. Ackers former superintendent of public instructions entering the field as a candidate. This action indicates an opposition in some quarters with Mr. Kolp. Ackers is very popular, and notwi^standing the lateness of his candidacy, he stands a good show to win the prize. The democrats are counting on the independents voting with them as far as Monk or Roe are concerned. This seems probable, but nothing definite is known as far as the balance are concerned. The democratic candidates for miner positions are anxious to have a compromise made and want their members to offer the republicans the speeker and the committee chairmanship and they taking the balance. The republicans I have talked with have neither made or received any offers of a comprmise and if they follow the advice of the best political leaders of the party they will not listen to any of the proposed measures of agreement as to a division of officers. Chairman Dunn, of the democratic state central committee seems to be the person managing the affairs of that party. The affairs in reference to the secretary of the senate is considerably mixed, and none of the four candidates wili have a clean majority on the first ballot. The candidates for the position of warden of the Ft. Madison penitentiary are all on the ground and working hard. This fight is going to be very interesting. The general understanding seems to be that Governor Boles will be inaugurated next week Thursday. Senator Hutchison arrived yesterday morning and was warmly greeted by republicans who made the good fight and kept the faith. Captain Washington Galland, of Ft. Madison, is a candidate for enrolling clerk of the house. Mr. Galland is an old soldier and a capable man and has received very favorable mention from the Ft. Madison and Keokuk papers. Mrs. Foster’s popularity with Iowa people was demonstrated every time her name was mentioned in the convention. She made very haappy speeches both in the afternoon and in the evening. CHURCH DEDICATION! throwing their money away. It appears that all goods of this nature are subject to an import duty in Holland, and the authorities there are determined to put an end to the practice of sending them in registered packages through the mails. They are gathered into a storage room apart as a receptacle for such goods, as fast as they arrive, and when a sufficient quantity has been piled up they are placed under a huge pounding machine and the whole collection pounded into powder. The postal authorities are anxious that the good people of the Lowlands who have cast their lot in this country should not continue to send their goods and jewelry to be treated in this heathenish manner, and notices to that effect will be published in a day or two. _ RAILROAD TEMPERANCE LAW. TM* C., B. de Q. Will Not Employ Mom Who Patronize Saloon*. Galesburg, Jan. IO.—The Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad company has issued circulars containing a iew temperance regulation. Men known /to be in the habit of becoming intoxicated will not be taken into the employ of the company. Station agents, train a lo. vcgine men and telegraph operators who visit drinking places must cease frequentihg them or be discharged. Discharge for a second offense of drunkenness is made obligatory on superintendents and master mechanics. No person discharged for drunkenness can be again employed without the consent of the general manager. THE READING LITIGATION. John Wan smatter FII** an Answer to th* Bill In Equity. Philadelphia, Jan. IO.—The threatened litigation to secure an injunction preventing the voting trustees of the Reading road from re-electing President Corbin was an absorbing topic of conversation to-day. An attempt w*s made some time ago to dissolve the Reading voting trust, and the courts were appealed to. The writ is still pending and it is not likely to he settled for six monte or more. John Wanamaker who is a member of the board of Reading trustees filed this afternoon his answer to the bill in equity. He says in substance inasmuch as the plaintiff s bill has raised the ques tion of the validity of the course of the voting trustees, he respectfully asks for instructions that hefciay act intelligently and in accordance with the judgment of the court upon the questions at issue. A REMARKABLE INVENTION. Personal Insulation Which Prevent* Danger from Electricity. Erie, Pa., Jan. IO —Electricians in this section of the state were invited by Superintendent Jacob Pfelch of the Erie Motor Car company to witness a test of personal insulation, Wednesday. Pfelch, alarmed at the fatalities in New York and elsewhere, studied day and night to arrest the danger lying in the overcharged wires. He fortified himself, and taking hold of the buzz rods of the dynamos in his bare hands, which he had dipped in water, he then stepped upon a pile of wet dirt and received the full charge, over five hundred volts, the force used to operate about ten miles of road. To the surprise of everyone the electricity did not ground and the superintendent felt no effects whatever. This invention is a secret to himself and upon which he will apply for a patent at once. The insulation enables linemen and others to handle any wire with safety, and is an absolute protection._ A PLUCKY DRIV KU. DESPERATE STR0S8LE DP DROWND!® IEX DI A SINKING CAISSON.

Therefore they have decided to elevate Beggs to his old place._ A Fen®* Around u Saloon. McConnelsville, O., Jan. IO —A remarkable and unique ordinance has been passed by the city council. It was sub sUntislly an ordinance for the building of a high fence around a certain saloon in town, known as the Blue Goose, to prevent access in any other way except the one front door, which faces the pub lac square, the most prominent position of the town. Up to within a very short time ago one of the councilmen was bartender of the above saloon, and for some time his services were dispensed with consequently the ordinance, which, from his knowledge pf the private affairs of the saloon, will hurt their business.

IO.—Thirteen miles from Blanche, south of Austin, on the road leading to Fischer’s store, two masked robbers held up the San Marcos stage. One of the bandits, both of whom were on foot, ordered the driver to stop with a revolver while his companion proceeded to business. The driver was forced to hand over a small amount of money, which he had on his person. But when the robber who had his pistol drawn on the driver turned his head, the driver suddenly laid whip to the horses and at the same time began firing on the bandits. A regular pistol duel ensued. Two bullets from the robbers penetrated the driver’s clothes, but did no other damsge. Previous to the shooting one of the robbers began unhitching the horses and ordered the driver to hand out the mail sacks. His shot stopped these proceedings. The driver saved the mail and the robbers escaped unhurt. EGGED A TE A v. HER. Boston Scholar* Reseal tM* Flogging of a Boy and Can** a SIH Boston. Jan. IO.—A riot took place in an East Boston school, Wednesday, aud it ended in the flight of the teacher. The boys chased him through the streets and mobbed him with eggs, stones, and sticks. The teacher, named Pfeffer, was recently appointed sub-master of the Lyman school. The trouble started when the teacher flogged a little fellow named Silly Murphy for carrying eggs in his pocket. The eggs were intended for the teacher. That flogging aroused the other boys, and the teacher was pelted with eggs until he ran from the room. Then the boys chased him. The teacher has left town. _ NEW YORK IN THE GRIP.’ Louisville, Ky., Jan. IO.—When the divers engaged in the work of rescuing the bodies of the unfortunate victims of last night’s caisson tragedy, had succeeded in making an entrance into the dismantled caisson at an early hour this morning, a pitiful sight met their gaze. From the appearance and position of the bodies about the small door through which entrance and exit wss made to the caisson, it was evident that a terrible death struggle had taken place. One of the negroes had succeeded in pulling himself partly through th6 aperture, but just as life seemed within his grasp death overtook him. Around this corpse’s waist were clasped the arms of another negro who had apparently engaged in a fierce struggle to reach the exit first. Between these two a white man lay grasping both corpses and seemingly in the act of pushing    back    with    his    feet some struggler in the rear. About these central figures were distributed in various positions other bodies, all exhibiting in their contorted lines the fierce struggle that must have taken place. The SUDDEN RUSH OF QUICKSAND caused by the sinking of the caisson, so overwhelmed    the    bodies    that    but three of them    could    at that time be    gotten out. The    investigation    that    could be made under the circumstances shows that at least two more men, Hamilton Morris and Lewis Cox, also lost their lives, making the total death list sixteen. M. Ingle, the resident engineer of the bridge company, was seen. He expressed the opinion that some one was evidently to blame for not having the trap door in proper condition, and also for the weakness of the caisson, which resulted in the leak. The timekeeper on duty yesterday afternoon says: “There was nothing to be seen from the outside to indicate what had taken place. There was no noise, and the first intimation that there was an accident was when the four men appeared at the top of the lock and shouted to the engineer to turn in more air to keep back the water. The engine was going at great speed and a great quantity of air was forced into the caisson, and we could see the millions of bubbles on the surface of the water, which indicated that the air was not being confined in the box. Robert Baldwin, reported last night as being among the dead, and Lewis Cox, reported this morning as dead, have inade their appearance. Only one body had been recovered up to noon, the other bodies in sight being wedged in the manhole so that they could not be removed. All efforts to recover the bodies in the bridge caisson by pumping in air have been given up, and in the morning it will be sent in by an excavation shaft. It is hoped then that the thirteen remaining bodies can be taken out. RAGING FLOOD. Mn Axford Bal——a {NM Jail. Shelbyville, HI., Jan. IO.—Mn.

IO.—Some sensational facts have been developed at the hearing of the case of Mrs. Evelyn Abbott, who keeps a lying in hospital and baby farm in Roxbury. A license is required to keep a lying-in hospital, and the testimony below was given by state and city officials, who were opposed to renewing Mrs. Abbott’s license. In view of the startling nature of this testimony it is difficult to understand why the woman was not arrested months ago. Mrs Abbott appeared before the board of health to-day, asking that her license be renewed. She is fully six feet tall and weighs between two hundred and three hundred pounds. She was dressed in a thick black \flster, which she did not loosen, and i rore through the hearing a black veil with Ieav figures over eyeglasses. She testified that she took babies to board for so much per week 8he would take any baby whose board was guaranteed and ask no questions. She adopted babies for cash—usually 825 —and then advertised for families who wished to adopt babies. She charged people who wanted to adopt babies enough to pay her for her time and trouble. Dr. Draper, medical examiner for Roxbury, said that he would present facts which, though hardly admissable in a court of law, were nevertheless strongly against the petition in question. In February, 1887, he was acquainted, he said, with a case where a child died under the charge of Mrs. Abbott, and from the autopsy it was shown that the child died of neglect and insufficient feeding. In May, 1889, the body of a child was made the subject of an autopsy, and though there was no criminal evidence against Mrs Abbott the signs showed that the child had died of neglect and insufficient feeding. There was found in Franklin park, November 22, the body of a child wrapped in calico and a Portland newspaper, which bears Mrs. Abbott’s name. This was a clear case of starvation and criminal neglect. “Dead bodies of thirteen children," continued Dr. Draper, “have been found within a radious of three quarters of a mile from Mrs. Abbott’s place and all have borne traces of starvation." From evidence on bodies he has the solid presumption, he said, that they were traceable to the premises of Mrs. Abbott. Another case was under the notice of the Ruxbury authorities at the present time. Dr. Cummings, a medical officer, testified that upon a call at Mrs. Abbott’s the children had appeared to him to be pretty well fed But two of them, one perhaps eighteen months old, and the other over two years, were sitting on the floor, each with one end of a small rope tied to the middle of its body and the other end tied to furniture on the other side of the room. This she said was because they got together and grabbed each other. Mr. Burt, of the visiting department for Out door Poor, and Mr. Frank B fay, of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, also testified. The atter said that twelve dead babies had been carried out of the house in three months. He summoned Mrs. Abbott to his office, and she frankly admitted it. She said the babies were brought there half dead, and took cholera infantum and died inside of forty eight lours. To one of the board Mrs. Abbott said she could not explain why the paper J'ound on the dead body in Franklin park was there. It was her paper. Mrs. Abbott durittj all the testimony, was con tionualljf flterrupting the witnesses with explanai tis and denials. 8he wanted to know rhy other women who advertised bab.es for adoption were not prosecuted as she had been. She had no idea that her business was illegal. At the close of the hearing the board refused the license._ Aa Ie* Famla*. New York, Jan. IO.—The supplies of ice in this town and witin reasonable reach is not sufficient to fill an ordinary winter demand for three weeks.

A FAIR AMAZON. TM* Assistant Postmaster General Se Resign Md B*com* Editor el UM t iii CA* o 8M**t. It is now authoritatively stated, says the Council Bluffs Nonpareil, that First Assistant Postmaster General Clarkson is to resign shortly. This means that Mr. Clarkson wil become editor of the Chicago Times. That this would come about at no distant day has been an open secret for some time. It is Mr. Clarkson’s ambi-bition and also the desire of the man who now controls the Times. When Irwin-Huiskamp syndicate took the paper away from Editor J. J. West, it was merely a protractive move. They did not desire to run the paper. So as soon as their ownership was established, the control of the paper passed into the hands of William Henry Smith, manager of the Western Associated Press, and his son Now Manager Smith and Mr. Clarkson are great personal friends, and negotiations were at once begun to make the latter editor of the Times. Mr. Clarkson's acceptance occasions no surprise among those near him. When the Irwin-Huiskamp syndicate first purchased the paper the Clarkson brothers were also bidders. Besides Mr. Clarkson’s ambition is very well known. He has repeatedly said be would rather be editor of a Chicago paper than hold any office in the government.

When Constable Weens ordered the negroes to remove the parlor furni ture Mrs. Fink quietly said, "No you don’t," and like an angry tigress, she leaped at the constable. She polished him off in a lively style, planting her fists in his eyes and on his nose. and scratching his cheeks The man did his best to defend himself, but he was no match for his fair opponent.
