Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - February 19, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1839.] BURLINGTON, IOWA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 19, 1890. [Pmcb: 15 Cents pee Week. TBI OKLAHOMA BILL. 118 PASSAGE IS ASHED IN THE NATIONAL HOOSE. A Digest af the Moose Bill—The Senate Sealion - Iowa and Illinois Pensions —The Postal Telegraph—General Washington News. Washington, Feb. 18.—There was no objection from the minority aide of the house this morning to the approval of yesterday’s Journal. Saturday afternoon, March 15, was set apart for the delivery of eulogies upon the late Representative Kelley, of Pennsylvania.    , The appropriation committee reported the pension appropriation bill and it was referred to the committee of the whole. A conference committee was ordered upon the bill to direct the superintendent of the census to collect statistics of farm mortgages and indebtedness. The speaker laid before the house a message from the president transmitting without comment a communication from the interior department, proposing an amendment to the act providing for allotments of lands in severalty to the Indians. The senate bill providing for the appointment of an assistant secretary of war was laid before the house, and the house went into committee of the whole on its consideration. The discussion continued until 1:30, when the committee rofe without action and the house resumed the consideration of the bill to provide a temporary government for Oklahoma Pending that, Mr. Perkins asked consideration for the senate bill for the relief of the Sioux Indians at Devil’s Lake Agency, North Dakota, but Mr. McMillan objected, and the house went into committee of the whole on the Oklahoma bill. General debate was limited to three and one-half hours, despite the appeal of Mr. Barnes and others for Ave hours lime, and in retaliation for the enforced limitation they called for the reading of the original senate bill and the house substitute, altogether fifty-nine printed pages One hour and twenty minutes was consumed in the reading and it was after three o’clock before Mr. Htruble, ot Iowa took the floor in support of the bill. He criticized the senate bill because it failed to include all the creek and Seminole lands purchased under the last administration. The house bill embraced all of the territory not occupied by five civilized tribes. This tract in area. compared favorably with the surrounding states; it was rn the heart of the country and well watered, with thirteen hundred miles of railroads, with business enterprises, coal lands, agricultural industries aud a population of ninety thousand people. The house bill proposed to organize it into a territory. The first part of the bill related to tho territorial officers and is similar in that to the senate bill. For convenience six counties were to be established. Provisions were made for the establishment of a supreme court and for the trial of cases. National banks should be established; “No Man’s Land’’ was to be opened to settlement and town sites were to be reserved. A section of the bill provided for the speedy settlement of the controversy between tho United States and the state of texas respecting the ownership of Greer county. What might be called a second division of the bill related solely to the Indian Territory, exclusive of Oklahoma and creates a supreme court and three district courts to administer the law of Arkansas so far as it is applicable to that territory. Mr. Barnes advocated the fenate bill in preference to the house substitute. Mr. Springer said Mr. Barnes unintentionally tried to misrepresent the scope of the bill. Under the treaties the United Stater) had as much right to legislate respecting the lands of nae Cherokee outlet as ii. had to legislate on any subject. Mr. Hare had read as a part of his remarks a protest from Governor Bird, of the Choctaw nation, against the passage of the bill as a violation of the treaty made at I) acing Water in 1830. Messrs. Mansur and Perkins both insisted that they had had communications frorti Governor Bird asking to have a court established at a certain point. The committee rose before the debate had concluded and the house adjourned. THE SENATE. Washington, Fob. 18.—Among billa reported from the committee on the calendar were tho following: Making an appropriation for a deep water harbor at, Galveston; to establish a port of delivery ot Sioux City, Iowa; appropriating $100,-000 for a public building at Grand Forks. North Dakota , and to provide for the admission of the state of Idaho into the Union. At the cIobo of the morning business the senate at 12:30 proceeded to the consideration of executive business. The doors reopened at half past three. The educational bill came up as unfinished business and Mr. Blair proceeded with his address. After speaking for over two hours be yielded the floor and Hale, from Hie conference committee on the bill to require the superintendent of the census to ascertain the number of people who own their farms and homes, and the amount of mortgage indebtness of telegraph rates as he saw them, but he failed in that. He had offered the present bill simply as a study for the committee. He said he thought that the civil service commission should control the proposed new service, and he would also recommend that the bill be amended so aa to prevent the use of wires for political purposes by employes and others. In response to questions Wanamaker ("Md the difficulty of getting a contract t Vible in its character so the government might take advantages of new inventions occuring during ten years of the contract was not so troublesome as might seem. His whole aim in using the employes now engaged was to obviate the objections which had been raised that the postal telegraph would take a great deal of money from the treasury sad'would ring in a new army of employes. Mr. Chandler, the next witness, said his company could not do the work pro posed at the maximum rates provided in the bill without loss. No other com pany could do it without loss. “We do not want,’’ said Chandler, “to see a government telegraph established or the beginning of a government telegraph that will destroy the $8,000,000 which we have invested in this property. We do not think that the government has a right to do that, and if it has that right, we think it would be unjust and very unreasonable to exercise it. TUE TREATY KATI VIED The senate to day ratified the British extradition treaty. Extradition is not to be had for political offense nor shall any person surrendered by either party be tried for any other offense than the one for which he was extradited. The treaty does not apply to any crimes committed before its ratification. Tile discussion lasted two hours and two changes of importance were adopted by the senate The word “voluntary” was inserted before “manslaughter.” The paragraph relating to the crime of obtaining money or bonds under false pretense was substantially modified if not striken out. With these changes the treaty is said to have met the approval of the democratic senators and the vote in its favor is understood to have been practically unanimous A PURE FOOD DIVISION. The senate committee on agriculture to-day reported a substitute for the bill introduced by Faulkner for the establishment of a pure food division in the department of agriculture, to provide for the inspection cf live stock, etc , and prohibit the introduction of adulterated or misbranded food or drugs, etc. The bill as amended provides that the secretary of agriculture shall organize a “food division” and appoint a chief at a salary of $3,000 a year, to procure and analyze samples of food and drugs sold in any state other than where it is manufactured. All manufacturers of goods intended for shipment from one state to another shall make application for a license to the secretary of agriculture, certifying the articles are not deleterious. The bill strikes out the second, third and fourth sections of the original bill relative to the slaughter of animals and with the exceptions noted is the same as the old bill. It was recommitted to the committee on agriculture. TO AMEND THE INTERSTATE LAW. Senator Ingalls (by request) to-day introduced a bill to amend the interstate commerce law by providing any person shipping or smuggling intoxicating liquors into a state or territory that forbids the sale of it, shall be deemed guilty of misdemeanor, and any railroad company that transports the same shall be fined $100 for each offense. TO INCREASE THE PURCHASE OF 8ILVER. Washington, Feb. IS.—At a meeting of the senate finance committee to-day there was a practical agreement that a bill should be passed authorizing the secretary of the treasury to increase the purchase of silver, and store it as bullion and issue certificates upon it. It is expected the details of a bill covering these propositions will be drafted at the next meeting of the committee. confirmations. The senate this afternoon confirmed the following nominations: L. H. Barley, register land oft!ce at Pierre, South Dakota; H H. Natwick, register land office at Chamberlain, South Dakota; E. W. Ekin, receiver of public moneys at Pierre, South Dakota; W. T. Laf&llotte, I receiver of public moneys at Chamber-lain, South Dakota. FANZ TO GET AN APPOINTMENT. Henry J. Fanz, the victim of the Aberdeen outrages has been recommended by Superintendent Porter for the appointment as a special agent of the eleventh census to collect statistics relative to recorded indebtedness. NOMINATIONS. Receivers of public moneys: Edward M. Lane, Valentine, Nebraska; Benjamin S. Williams, Yankton, South Dakota. CAPITAL GOSSIP. The pension appropriation bill for the next fiscal year which was reported to the house to day from the committee on appropriations, carried with it $98,427,-000, being $60,000 less than the estimates and $16,669,000 more than the bill for the current fiscal year. At the evening session of the legislature nothing was done with the world’s fair bill, the amendments not having arrived from New York. PENSIONS GRANTED.

The conference committee did not think it wise to make a discrimation between the different classes of questions. The conference report was agreed to.

In the republican caucus it was said that if the last proposition made by the republicans was submitted again it would be accepted by the opposition. After considerable discussion it was decided to ascertain the truth of this before any formal proposition WM made, and ac cordingly the conference committees met and talked over the matter. Only a very few of them favored the idea, and others said plainly that the CMting of lots WM the only method by which the democrats would settle matters, provided they could not have the speaker. With matters standing thus this morning no one could see any end of the deadlock. It WM apparently as far off as ever, and prospects for settlement were of the poorest. The report of the committee on press seats yesterday aroused some little feeling among the reporters and correspondents. The are more of them here than there are seats to accommodate and in consequence Borne must go without or take the temporary accommodations which are to be provided on the floor of the house The complaint comes mostly form the democratic side, though the democrats constituted the majority of the committee. The one part of the report objected to most strongly is that giving a set to Col. D. M. Fox, who is representing New York Voice and Iona, (Mich.) Sentinel. Mr. Fox is register of the land cffice here and they say with some show of justice that he should spend his time attending to the duties of his office instead off coming over here, accopying a regular seat and writing but little, when representatives of Iowa and Chicago dailies muct put up with whatever accommodation they can find on the floor. Of course it is difficult to adjust matters m nicely m can be, and to make matters run smoothly. This ] morning the report of the committee on I this subject wm adopted and this will j furnish additional seats to representatives of the press. Holbrook arose to say that more latitude should be given to the conditions of the agreement under which the house was acting. He presented his idea aB follows as an interpretation of the con-j ditions: * 'It is hereby neclared to be the true intent and meaning of the agree ment entered into by all parties in this house at the time the temporary organization WM agreed upon, that any motion or proposition having the object of securing the election of speaker or of providing a plan of arriving at a permanent organization of this house should be received for consideration by the body and by any committee of its members.” Holbrook moved the adoption of the statement and Walden seconded it. Luke spoke on the matter and said though it wm net necessary he would not oppose the adoption of the measure. It was adopted with a few dissenting voices. It seems strange that the house should have passed a joint resolution while temporarily organized. It is generally con-ceeded that bills cannot be passed until the house is permanently organized, and the pMsage of a joint resolution is almost the same thing. This morning a resolution WM passed instructing the secretary of state to furnish copies of the code to each member of the legislature. In order for a joint resolution to become I effective it must pass both houses, be engrossed and signed by the governor, the same as a bill. Now if the joint resolution gets through and the secretary of state recognizes it as legal the passage of this meMure and acts according to it there will be no further necessity of organization for the house can go ahead and pMS bills m if they were fully organized. There were nine pairs announced this morning, and the vote stood 41 and 41 Richman presented a resolution Simi* lar to that of Holbrook lMt week, calling for the settlement of the deadlock by lot. He made a speech supporting it saying that it WM not introduced for the purpose of provoking a partisan discussion. He considered it the only fair manner in which to settle the matter and deemed it the duty of each member to vote for the meMure proposed. He quoted from The Burlington Hawk-Eye to prove that the matter m it stands now is very irksome to the people of the state, and the speakership as it will have no great honor or power under existing conditions. Mr. Dolph amended by suggesting that the matter be left to a committee of three from each side instead of to the conference committee. Blythe said that the matter had not been fully considered in the republican caucus and therefore wished an adjournment till 2:30 for the purpose of giving the republicans time to consider it as fully as the democrats had done. Mr. Lehman’s proposition WM m follows: Whereas, it has been demonstrated beyond all cavil by five consecutive weeks of doily balloting, that upon the question of organisation this house is a tie, and that1 neither side will voluntarily yield Hie permanent speakership to the other, and Whereas, the present deadlock is manifestly being perpetuated to the detriment of the public business and exhaustion of the public patience, and Whereas, there is a method provided in the statutes of this state for determining the election of certain public officers in case of a tie vote that lots should be CMI, therefore, be it Resolved, That it is the sense of this the ship of all the committees chosen by them. 5.

THE POSTAL TELEGRAPH. Washington, Feb. 18.—The house committee on postoffioes and postroads to-day continued its consideration of the subject of limited telegraph service. Postmaster General Wanamaker, A. B. Chandler, president of the Postal Telegraph company, and D. H.

The republican caucus held a short session before dinner and got together again shortly After one o’clock to discuss the matter. In the republican caucus the democratic proposition by Richman wm rejected and it was decided to present on the floor of the house the following: The republicans of the house submit to the democratic members of the same body the fellowing proposition as a basis    w ^withoot^fnrth** aT*-81 PAjment as desired. know about these things are being consulted and before final action is taken all light that can be obtained will be shed on the subject. Hon. John Russel, who was auditor of state at the time of the passage of the law under which it is sought to obtain pay, has been consulted in the matter. This law wm passed by the legislature of 1874. when the former deadlock occurred. As matters stood then members could not draw pay till the close of the session. It wm ofter the deadlock wm settled and without any reference thereto that the law m it now stands was enacted. The members wanted to get part of their money before the session was over and in order to do so passed the bill. They did not consider anything like a deadlock and were not trying to provide against future emergencies. Mr. Russel supposed when the law passed that it provided for the speaker and lieutenant governor signing the certificates, but instead it says merely the presiding officers. It was not contemplated that any presiding officer might make out a certificate, although the law seems to read that way now. Another thing that seems to be rather beyond the power of either presiding officer is the fact that A. N. Pay-neer is certified as entitled to mileage as lieutenant governor, when everybody knows that he has not yet entered upon the duties of that office and is not entitled to mileage until he does. Mr. Russell is of the opinion that Auditor Lyons is all right in refusing to issue warrants during temporary organization. Luke said that the people of the state would not have any great regard for organization obtained in the manner proposed. To be sure the law provided for deciding elections by lot, but the cmos were very different. There the electors were all dispersed and no other way could be gotten at for deciding; but here all the members were present and they could settle the matter in a regular way. Luke went on to discuss the question in a historical way and Holbrook raised the point he was out of order and the chair sustained the point. Luke said: “You democrats never want to discuss a matter historically because you do not want your record shown up.” There was great applause at this. The roll call on the resolution was then ordered, and resulted in a tie vote, strictly partisan. QThis ended the discussion and the house at once proceeded to roll call. Only two ballots were taken and then the house adjourned till 2:30 to-morrow afternoon. The democrats could not have made a greater mistake than they did in calling Luke down. He WM working to broil up the members and the splendid chance he had to get in a retort wm more effective than a long speech. The partisans were very enthusiastic on the democratic side. When Luke was ruled out there was applause. but on the republican side when Luke made his retort there WM wild enthusiasm. The members yelled in their seats, shook their fists at the opposition, while the galleries and lobbies were filled with tumultous applause. It is not often Luke gets excited, but when he does something is sure to drop. At the conclusion of to-day’s skirmish the democrats wished they had not interrupted, as the republicans gained greatly in the affair. The feeling among the latter to-night is that the democrats have been narrowed down to a very small place upon which to stand, and if they still persist in holding out, if they will not accept one side or the other of the proposition made, or will not organize till they have their own way, the people of the state will know pretty well what sort of men they are dealing with. The republicans are on top and no mistake now. They have the advantage in public sentiment and intend to follow up that advantage m far as possible. The proposition from the republicans was received too late for caucus action this evening. The main opposition to the former proposition from the republicans came from Hamilton and his friends. The talk in the lobby and around the hotels disclosed the fact that they ore in favor of acceptance and if they have not lost their influence in the democratic ranks that will be the program to morrow. The session of the senators this afternoon showed plainly where the friends of Allison are. The petitions sent out by the democrats calling for the election of Larrabee were sent in with the names changed so that the election of Allison is demanded. The reaction has set in with full force and will continue m long as the democrats continue their work- Accompanying the petitions were letters even more expressive of public sentiment. The bill filed by Gatch to-day will have special effect upon the enforcement of the prohibitory law. It restricts constables to the townships instead of the county, and makes it obligatory upon them to have warrants fully and properly made out and a violation renders offenders liable to thirty days imprisonment and 9100 fine. This will do away with outside constables enforcing the law in cities. Auditor Lyons feels much encouraged in the stand he hM taken by the action of the senate this afternoon on the joint resolution of the house. The senate simply placed the resolution on file and refused to take any action upon it until the permanent organisation hM token place and thereby refused to act in conjunction with the temporarily organised house. Clerk Wilcox WM very sddroit in presenting the communication. He handed it in and got away before any one hod time to object to its reception. Aferwards there WM some talk of sending it back but action WM finally token in a way deemed just as effective and much wiser. When the senate will not recognise the house Auditor Lyons thinks he hM some definite support in his position even though tile attorney general does differ with him in the mitier. It is expected that to-morrow a decision will be made. One way suggested out of the difficulty is tile passage of a joint resolution requesting Another is to have] court sad rest on in the penitentiary at the Ft. Madison penitentiary for the murder of SUM Tipton, wm taken to that place to-day. At least five hundred persons gathered at the depot to bid him good-bye and considerable feeling was exhibited by many ladies and others who wept and wrung the doctor’s hand at parting. A number of citizens and the doctor’s two little girls accompanied him part of the way on his journey, and the farewell scene between the father and his children was touching in the extreme. There will be an immediate effort to have the doctor’s sentence sentence re duced.

On his arrival there in a state of complete destitution, he was most kindly and hospitably received by a young attache of the Austrian consulate-general, who, at the risk of his whole future and of immediate disgrace, cared for the wants of the Hungarian patriot for many months. The name of this young man was Ignatz von Schaeffer, who held the post of Ausrian minister plenipotentiary at Wuk ington until three or four years ago. In 1857 a general amnesty enabled Count Andrassy, who was the head of one of the oldest Hungarian families, to return to his native country. In 1860 he wm elected vice president of the Hungarian parliament, and in 1867, on the corona lion of the emperor an empress of Austria as king and queen of Hungary, he bocasine prime minister of the kingdom. Among the principal acts of his a ministration were the civil and political emancipation of the Hebrews. In 1871, on the resignation of Count Beust, he became minister of foreign affairs and premier of the entire empire, and as such attended the Berlin congress in 1878, retiring in the following year in coraequence of his aversion to the maintenance of friendly relations with Russia, a feeling which was perfectly national in a Magyar magnate He was married to one of the most beautiful and statuesque women of her time. The count was of slight and ex ceedingly elegant figure, with masses of brown curly hair and a singularly refined yet far from effeminate look. No great er contrast could be imagined than to see the count and Prince Bismarck standing side by side in a box at one of the state performances of the Vienna opera. _ THE FARNELL DECISION. language question was resumed Liurier, leader of the opposition, made a long speech in which he defended the French population and charged the people of Ontario with wishing to drive the French out of the country at the point of the bayonet Sir John McDonald said the French, aa British subjects, would not be tyrannised, but would receive fair play at the hands of the government.

Their weights were Dempsey 147 f. McCarthy    15‘J*.    The fight WM a clever one. Most of the time the Australian was quite cautious, but succeeded in giving Dempsey some pretty hard raps.

In the ninth round McCarthy delivered a terrific left hander on Dempsy’s stomach, followed up with a sharp blow on the    nose    which caused Dempsey to wince.

The sixteenth round was one of the liveliest and was greatly in Dempsey’s favor, he landing on the Australian's body and jaw as he pleased. McCarthy’s eyes and cheeks began to puff up and when the round closed he was groggy. McCarthy was distressed in the subsequent rounds, but did not take the defensive thereafter, continuing to fight stubbornly. He worked hard to imash Dempsey, but the latter was too quick for him. In the twenty-fourth he again doubled McCarthy up ny a savage right-hander in the wind, but the plucky Australian recovered and reached Dempsev’s neck with heavy right hand swing. Dempsey finally knocked McCarty out in tho twenty eighth round._ FOR FRBK COINAGE.
