Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - January 25, 1890, Burlington, Iowa I /THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1839.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, SATURDAY MORNING, JANUARY 25, 1890. [Price: 15 Cents pee Week. THE /DM1KI8TRATIVE Bill UHVES SIDi RATION DI TEE HOOSE. CON oiryins with the Worlds Fair Prob- lon—New York’s Bid—The Proposed New If aTjr—General Washington News, Washington, Jan. 24—On motion of Grosvenor, of Ohio, the house insisted upon its amendment to the senate bill for the removal of obstructions from the Missouri river aid a conference ordered. The house then went into a committee , of the whole for further consideration of the customs administrative bill. The pending amendment was that offered by Bayne, of Pennsylvania, to section 15, providing that during the pending of any controversy or litigation about the amount of duty to be paid by any owner, agent, importer or consignee of any imported merchandise in the courts, the merchandise in question shall remain in the government warehouse and under control of the secretary of the treasury and in all actions brought against the collector of customs by the owners, agents, importers or consignees, plaintiff shall be required to p rove before he can recover that said merchandise at the time of trial is in cutody of the government. Mr. Blanchard of Louisiana, criticised the section for the reason that in his opinion it took away from the citizen rignt of trial by jury and denied to him his right of appeal though it reserved that right to the govern rnont. Mr. Mills supported the Bayne amendment. Mr. Carlisle said the amendment was an indirect provision thai no honest importer of goods should be allowed to appeal to the courts for correction of any wrong. Owing to crowded dockets the court « decision might not be rendered for three or four yea's If in the meantime the goods were required to be kept in bond it would work hardship on the importers The remedy was for congress to make its statutes plain and simple so that the oft! era of the government might have no difficulty in construing them and the courts might be more diligent in the trial of import cases. Mr. McKenna, of California, spoke in support of the bill. He also favored the Rayne amendment. Mr. AdamB, of Illinois, opposed the amendment. Mr La Follette, of Wisconsin, offered an amendment providing that perishable goods may be withdrawn pending Ii legation. This was agreed to but the Biayno amendment as amended was defeated Mr Breckinridge, of Kentucky, submitted an amendment the effect of which is to give the circuit court the right to determine questions of fact as well as questions ai law. The amendment was rejected after a brief discussion. Mr. Carlisle offered a substitute for the whole section, the chief effect of which is to allow the courts to de termitic the question of fact as well as of law. The substitute was lost—112 to 114. This leaves the fifteenth sec ion as originally report* d It pro wides the owner, importer, consignee or agent or collector, or the secretary of the treasury, if dissatisfied with tie decision of the board of general appraisers may, within thirty days after the decision. and, not afterwards, apply to the circuit court of the Uaited States for a review of the questions of law involved in such decision The decision of such court shall be final, unless the court is of the opinion that the question is of such importance as to require a review by the supreme court of the United States in which case the court may allow an appeal. On the original application, and any appeal, security for damages and costs shall be given as in the case of other appeals in the cases in which tho United Slates is a party. The nineteenth section having been reached, Breckinridge, of Arkansas, submitted a substitute which was rejected. On motion of Breckinridge, of Ken lucky, an amendment was adopted providing that this section shall not apply to merchandise imported in cartoons, casas, crates, boxes, sacks and other covering which is subject to rate duty equal to or greater thau sixty per cent. Pending further consideration, the committee rose. On motion of Perkins, a joint resolution was passed appropriating $75,000 for tho purchase of food aud clothing for the Indians at La Pointe agency. Mr. Peters introduced a bill to promote the interest of agriculture by irrigation; referred. The house then adjourned.

ABOUT TEE BAIE. OUR PKO POS SD NA VT. •psst tai War 349,515,000 fa bs Vc M Iva Washington, Jan. 24—The naval policy board appointed by Secretary; Tracy made a recommendation for build- j lag ten first-class battle-ships of ten thousand tons each; eight first-class, of ] eight thousand tons each; twelve second class, cf seventy-one hundred tons; three third-class, of sixty-three hundred to sevanty-five hundred tons; five third-class, of six thousand tons; six harbor monitors, of four thousand to six thou sand tons; one cruiser monitor, of thirty -eight hundred tone; eleven rams, of two thousand to thirty five hundred tons;! nine tbia-armored cruisers, of sixty-two! two hundred and fifty tons; four first-class protected cruisers of seventy-five hundred tons; ten first-class protected of fifty-four tons; twelve second-class protected of] three thousand to forty-five hundred tons; six third-class protected of seventeen hundred to thirty-one hundred and ninety tons; ten gun vessels and dispatch boats of eight hundred and fifty to fifteen hundred tons; sixteen torpedo cruis- j ers of about nine hundred tons; three torpedo depot artificer ships of five thousand tons each; one hundred and one tor pedo boats of sixty-five tons each; mak mg a total cf two hundred and twenty-seven ships of six hundred and ten thousand and thirty-five tons, at a cost of) •349,515,000. This total includes $67,-965,000 already expended, and authorizes an expenditure of $281,550,000. When! she committee proceeded to the consideration of the recommendations, an issue was raised whether it was advisable at I this time to begin with the construction f the immense line of battle ships proposed. Including harbor defense monitors there are forty-four of these vessels and they would cost $202,490,000, while the I other vessels together would cost only •147,025,000. Chandler and McPherson! urged that the United States should continue the present policy of building fast I cruisers and defer the building of a huge line of battle ships until we had a larger number of cruisers or there was somej exigency calling for their construction. On this issue the committee was divided, majority agreeing with the policy board, and Hale was instructed to re port favorably the bill introduced by nim several days ago, embodying the recommendation of Secretary Tracy. DRE88ID BLEAT INVJESTIG ATION. What Was Done in the House—The Senate Does Very Little-Creston Keeps the County Seat—General State Hews Items, Vlc«-Priaid«ni Huntington Addrmm tho Smnmtm CcnmlUM. Washington, Jan. 24 — Vice President HuctiDgton, of the Central Pacific Railroad company, to day addressed the senate's select committee on the Pacific railroads!, in explanation cf a plan which would be acceptable to the Central Pacific road for a settlement of its indebtedness to the government. His statement was practically a recapitulation of the longer one made by him yesterday ic the house Pacific railroad committee. The senate committee on naval affairs held an important meeting to day at which after c Desiderata discussion the committee decided upon a policy which will govern it during this congress in the work of building up the navy. This is, in brief that a great line of battle-ships like the English Ben Bow should be constructed at or ce. Senators Chandler and McPnerson are not in accord with the decision reached and majority and minority reports will be submitted to the senate. Senator Stanford is not wholly committed to the decision reached. Perkins* bill to open to homestead settlement certain portions of the Indian territory, was acted upon favorably by the house committee on Indian affairs to-day. S. J. Ritchie, of Ohio, appeared before the ways and means committee to-day and argued in favor of free importa tion of Canadian mineral ores anc in favor of unrestricted reciprocity with the Dominion. Benjamin Butter-worth, of Ohio, then addressed the committees in support of his bdl for recip rocity with Canada. Senator Vail Commute* Keen moo situ age After rn Lengtbf Best. Washington, Jan. 24 —The meat product investigating committee, of which Vest, of Missouri, is chairman, re Burned its session this morning * after an intermission of several weeks. After the inquiry of large railroad corporations as to rates and facilities governing the transportation of cattle and dressed beef has been finished, Senator Vest will begin the preparation of the report of the committee. The first witness, Samuel Sloan, president of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western railroad, said his road had refused to transport cars belonging to other people and had some litigation growing out of this refusal with Nelson Morris of Chicago. Morris claimed because of the peculiar construction of his cars that he should have certain advantages over other shippers which the Lackawanna could not yield. Morris subsequently withdrew his suit; no offer of compromise was made with him. Freight Agent Sloane, of the Lackawanna road, was questioned as to many matters of detail. He admitted an understanding was reached between the trunk lines a year ago by the terms of which the companies agreed not to pay mileage on private curs. This action was taken because the roads had a large supply of cars which were sidetracked while they were paying mileage on private cars. Under no circumstances were outside cars to be used. Sloane stated that there was no delay in ship ments because of the agreement; the various companies had sufficient facilities. He asserted that no direct or indirect advantage is given to any shipper in the matter of rates or facilities. Jonn King, president of the Erie road, did not quite agree with Sloane as to the reasons for the agreement. He said the Erie considered three quarters of a cent a mile for loaded and empty cars a very high rate and a tax on railroads, not only because they had their own cars but because car owners made a large profit. At three-fourths of a cent a mile each way car in regular service would pay for itself in three years. Senator Vest asked if such was the esse why the companies ever engaged in the business? King replied there were several reasons. In the beginning dressed beef people who had their own cars paid a very high rate and mileage was therefore in the nature of a drawback. The rate since had been reduced more than half. In answer to the question as to whether there had not for merly been discrimination in favor of the dressed beef shippers, witness said practically there were but three dressed beef shippers. „ "They have,” said he, ‘‘a very close combination. I don’t think there is any doubt about that. They go together in a solid column. When anything is to be done they fight together.” Mr. King said rates generally are steadier now than for several years, but on a low basis. The business was fairly remunerative and all the roads were now making money. General Manager Chapped of the Chi cage and Alton, testified that his road paid a uniform mileage of three quarters of a cent a mile to the owners of the pal ace cattle cars and one cent per mile to the owners of the dressed beef cars. There was no special agreements. Every b ody got the same rates. It was an open question whether the shippers preferred the palace cattle cars to the ordinary stock cars. Deb Moines, Jan. 24.—When the house met this morning the eighty-eighth roll call on temporary clerk was called. It resulted as heretofore—in a tie—Wilcox receiving 41 and Lehman 41. Several new pairs were announced and after four more fruitless ballots the house adjourned nntil three this afternoon to consider a proposition for compromise Both parties went into caucus at once. This afternoon after being called to order roll was called for pairs and then, on motion of Luke, the house adjourned till to-moirow. The reasons given were that negotiations were being carried on a settlement of the deadlock but nothing had yet been agreed on by the committee. THE SENATE. The senate this morning after being in session five minutes took a recess fo r an hour to see what the house would do After recess the senate adjourned till Tuesday afternoon. WHAT THS HOUSE DID. ▲frat* to Adjourn Till Monday— Faire, Ste. Special to THS Ha wk-Bys. Des Moines, Jan. 24.—The duty devolving upon the senate of merely meeting and adjourning is becomig a very monotonous affair. This morning the members were all agreed to adjourn over Sunday, but when called to order at ten o’clock they seemed to think something might happen on the other side of the house. After the prayer hod been cffered and the journal read, consuming in ail about five minutes, a recess of an hour was taken in order to see what the house might do in the meantime. Evidently the senators look upon the house as a sort of show and don’t intend to be deprived of the benefit of the daily performances. The members of the house as usual were in their regular morning caucus devotions uefore the opening of the session and filed in with the appearance of men here to stay for something which would not come. Many of them bad been to the opera the night before where the deadlock had been the subject of more than one local hit. While here at the capitol they consider it the most serious thing under the sun, but when hearing it made fun of they laugh as hard as any about the curious set situation in which they are. There were rine pairs this morning, as follows: Smith of Mitchell with Dayton, Gardner of Washington with Chamberlain, Steele wi*h Eilers, Holiday with Fe Felkner, (’base with Holbrook, Walden with Horton, Haspers with Russell, Van Gilder with 8mith of Wapello, McFarland with Patler. In consequence of the continued illness of Holbrook of Iowa the democratic side did not care to put forward any new proposition. They need his leadership when any new fight is going on and do anything without their leader bei:g present- It is characteristic of Mr Holbrook to mas'ter the details of everything with which he is concerned, and there is probably no man in the democratic ranks netter informed as regards the forces at work and the resources upon which to draw than does Mr, Holbrook. There are other strong democrats, but this man is the acknowledged leader. During the session a proposition was being considered and immediately after adjournment the two parties went into caucus to consult on the matter. The nature of it would not be given out. A RUFFIANLY BUTCHER. He Attempts Undae Familiarity With a LltUe Girl. Special to Thb Hawk-Etx. Dubuque, Jan. 24.—Wednesday a little daughter of a prominent railroad man in this city was sent to a certain butcher shop for some beefsteak. The burly butcher tried to use undue familiarity with the little one, who is very pretty and amiable. She became frightened at the ruffian’8 attempt to put his arms around her and kiss her, and screamed and struggled away from him. Running home she told her father, who armed himself with a revolver and started out on a gunning expedition for the butcher Fortunately—some would say uufortun ately—the butcher was nowhere to be found. It will do well for the butcher to take a change of location, as the father and others are very indignant over the affair. IN FA YOB OF CHESTON. County THE WORLD’S FAHL Further by the Now Delay Secured Torhere. Washington, Jan. 24.—The sub-com mtitee of the house committee on the world’s fair was in session for an hour this afternoon. The result was a further success of the policy of delay which has been so irritating to the Chicagoans The Frank resolution providing for fair in 1893 and the Springer resolution looking to a ballot in the house next Monday were both rejected, the las against Hitt’s opposition, and the sub committee decided to report to the full committee when it meets to-morrow the following resolution: "That this sub committee report to the full committee that it does not recommend the adoption of either resolution referred to it rn the forms stated, and asks permission tc proceed at once to framing a bill or billa She Will Continue to be th* Seat of Union County. Special to THI Hawk-Its. Creston, Jan. 25—In the district court to day at Afton, Judge R. C. Henry decided in favor of Creston in the county seat controversy between Creston and Afton.

Iowa City, Jan. 24 — Considerable interest has been stirred up in university circles over the announcement of the six successful contestants in the Deming oratorical contest. There were fourteen prcducticns handed to the judges on thought and composition and the judges marked them according to their respective merits.

Fort Dodge, lo., Jan. 24.—Northern owa is threatened with an immediate coal famine, which, if the present cold weather continues, will entail much suffering. The Fort Dodge and Lehigh coal fields are the principal source of fuel supply for this region. At present more than half the miners are suffering from the grip and unable to work.

Ex-President Cleveland Continues to Writ* Letters. Chicago, Jail. 24.—A letter from ex-resident Cleveland was read to-day at the concluding session of the Custom Cutlers’ national convention. Mr. Cleve-and says in part:    “The question of tariff reform directly affects the people of the land in a subitantial way, and they ought to be interested in its discussion. I am afraid a great many of our fellow citizens are too apt to regard this as a political question affecting thfem in a remote way. This induces neglect of the subject and a willingness to blindly follow the party to which they lappen to belong. It is a good sign to see practical men such as belong to your I accept the responsibility, but she wanted association discussing the questions for I a pledge that the ladies would “stand by themselves. If this is done intelligently | her to the last ” Mrs. Campbell, of and with intent to secure the truth, tariff reformers have no need to fear the result of such a discussion.” This letter was written in reply to one 'rom the president of the association asking for a statement on the tariff question as it affected tailors. A similar letter was sent to President Harrison but no reply has yet been received. • Sam* G EN EK AL WASHING ION NEWS. Postoffice Durtag (Jbouses la Iowa th* Past Woos. Special to Tho Hawk-Btk.

After the opening of the session this morning, Mrs. Ellen J. Phinney, the new president, said she had decided to rapidly gaining adherents throughout the naticn. We want all the strength of united Christian womanhood to be brought against the combined power of the liquor traffic. We cordially invite auxiliaryship of all state and local organizations under our broad banner of political freedom where every woman— whatever her party preferences or individual party work—may unite with us in our efforts against the common enemy of home, state and nation We recog nize and believe in and are individually related to many moral and political reforms of the age wfyich are the outgrowth of the gospel of Christ. These reforms are directly indirectly or remotely related to temperance reform, and their success will hasten the triumph of principles to which we are devoted. Neverthless, we believe our work in thi* nation el organ ization will be more effective if wholly free from any alliance with th'se move ments upon which our members widely differ in opinion. We note with great gratitude the growth of temperance con viction as shown in the number of states in which the liquor traffic is under the ban of constitutional and statutory prohibition, and the in creased area from which the saloon has been banished by local statutes Tht resolutions approved of the efforts to en-duce congress to amend the interstate law to prohibit the importation of liquor into prohibition states; to subject the sale of revenue stamps in such states to the state law and the proposad appointment of a congressional commission to investigate the liquor traffic. They de clare the fundamental needs of temperance reform to be a broader education of the individual mind and consoler ce in the religious, scientific and economic truths relating to the effects of alcohol The resolutions pledge the best efforts of the association to secure a thorough enforcement of both in letter and spirit of the laws requiring scientific temperance instruction in public schools in states where such laws have been enacted; and to work to make such instruction com pnlsory in all other states where no such legal provision exists. The resolutions were adopted without discussion. Mrs. Florence Porter, of Maine; Mrs M. C. Hickman, of Ohio; Mrs. General Duval, of West Virginia, and Miss Anna M. Edwards, of Cleveland, were made national organizers The location of the next convention was referred to the executive committee and the meeting adjourned sine die.

Chicago, Jan. 24.—B. P. Hutchinson has again been robbed, and one of his settling clerks on the board of trade is now in Toronto, an embezzler of an amount raging from $25,000 to $40,000 W. P. Dickenson & Co., another firm on the same floor with Hutchinson in the board of trade building, had a clerk in their employ who it is alleged was in the conspiracy, and Dickinson is the oser of sn amount which is estimated at from $7,000 to $15,000. His clerk, like Hutchinson’s, is also gone. and Dickinson says the two are now together in Toronto. The Evening Journal says: Hutchin son, while admitting the embezzlement, denies that they foot up to more than a few thousand dollars. The Journal says this is but a continuation or part of a system of robbery whereby “Old Hutch” has been victimized for nearly two years. His trades on the board are said to be very loosely managed and this accounts for the ease with which the stealing was done _ A Shameful State of xfclags St. Louis, Jan. 24.—Mrs. Clara Hoff mann, state president of the W. C. T. U Pennsylvania, said the women of her state would do so. “Praise God!” said Mrs. Aldrich, of Iowa. Mrs. H. M. Ingham and Miss F.

She said:    “I    am    a believer in muscu lar Christianity and cannot consistently accept the position.” The election then proceeded with the following re suits. Evangelistic Secretary, Mary J. Aldrich, of Iowa; educational secretary, Mrs. Joseph D. Weeks of Pennsylvania; legislative secre tary, Mrs. Lydia H. Tilton, of the District of Columbia; literary work, Mrs Florence Porter of Oldtown, Maine young men’s work, Mrs. J. B Webster of Illinois.

A fireman turned a hose on her and extinguished the fire. Eve^y stitch of clothing was burned from her body a9 far down as the waist. She will hardly recover.

Washington, Jan. 25 —A caucus of . democratic members of the house tonight, with Holman of Indiana, in the chair, discussed the new code of rule* now in course of preparation by the committee on rules. Briefly stated, those that were instanced by Carlisle as being particular J objectionable to tho democratic minority are the rules that do away with the old house calendar, leaving only the calendars of the committee of the whole and the slate of the union; that make one hundred a quorum of the committee of the whole; the re establishment of the old morning hour rule when business must be considered in order of the committee list and bil's must regarded as pending ut til disused of, and that fail to make >rivileged motions to adjourn to fixed day or take a recess. There was a long discussion over the proposed changes which fade I to result in the advancement of any practicable scheme for the amelioration of the r© pugnant features of the new rules. The contested election cases were then taken up and it was generally agreed the intention of the republicans is to unseat aa many democrats and seat as many republicans as will give them a fair working majority and insure a quorum in order to forge through rules. Although no formal resolution was adopted it was understood among the democratic members when the caucus adjourned that this republican plan should be resisted to the utmost and minority should exercise all its constitutional rights to prevent its success. In other words the determination is to fight the rules legitimately when the obnoxious sections are reached and refrain from voting and leave the house without a quorum if an attempt is made to unseat the democratic members before the rules are adopted.
