Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - February 21, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAW c E [YI E Established: June, 1839,]BURLINGTON, IOWA, FRIDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 21, 1»90. [Pkick: 15 Cents pee Week. AN EMPTY HONOR. / TIE DEMOCBATIC SPEAKER IS HEELY FIBDBE HEAD. His Hand* Are Tied and the Republicans With All Important Committees Will Control Legislation —Legislative Gossip. Thb HawkEti Bubba it, Capitol Building, Deb Moines, la., Fee. 20 At last the deadlock is ;( the re- over and members on both sides are greatly lieved. As in all comprcmises neither side can claim to have gained a victory. The fight was made on the speakership, as a matter of principle, and with the yielding of that the democrats claim they won greatly. Primarily they would seem to be right, but when other considerations are brought out their claim cmnot be substantiated. There are more ways than one in which to fight for a principle, and the republicans readily recognized this fact. So long as there was any proapect of getting a fair divi aion of things with a republican speaker they held out for it; but the more they investigated, the more they negotiated with the opposition the more plainly did it appear that the opposition cared more for the mere figurehead of spenker than they did for all the principle involved. finally narrowed down yesterday. It was a up the speakership or claims heretofore mado. tried desperately to get when it was and adroit ahi- Matters were to a finish cue of give 40 back on all The democrats something more, but brought out in such opened by prayer by Representative Johnston, of Bremer county, Sneaker Hamilton being in the chair. On the desk of the speaker and that of Mr. Wilton were very handsome bouquets, marks of recognition from Mrs. Larrabee. After the reading of the minutes the offlcers-elect who were not sworn in last night appeared before the bar of the house and were sworn in. There was considerable dismission the subject of visiting committees, much the same u in former years, The reuons assigned for not wanting these committees was that they could not get any more definite information than is contained in institution reports, etc. On the other hand it was said that as the institutions wanted ll.000,000, and there would be only •700,000 to appropriate, it wu proper the members have very definite information in order to cut down the appropriations properly. The resolution favoring the appointment wu adopted. The line of the senatorial session was taken up to a very great extent by the consideration of resolutions on various subjects. Amorg other thing the joint resolution calling for a joint convention this afternoon at half-put two to canvus the vote for governor and lieutenant governor was carried. There wu considerable discussion on all matters taken up, and affairs assumed a very business like aspect. This afternoon the joint convention canvused the vote for governor and lieutenant ^governor. No official announcement had vet been made of the result of last fall’s election but the cffi cial register gave semi-official returns and these are very nearly the correct figures. As compiled from this source the vote on governor and lieutenant governor was as follows: mative manner that they must either make a give or take proposition or accept the republican proposition they could not do other than they did. They feared the democratic wrath throughout the state; they were afraid if they gave up the speaker they would never be forgiven. But they felt none too good over the matter and were emphatically condemned by outside leaders for the action taken. The outsiders at first plainly showed their disgust and dis-pleasure, but they finally came round and began boasting of the glorious democratic victory. What influenced the republicans so strongly in makiog the concession was the fact that they can by having control of the principal committees, and a larger number of them, defend their principles as effectually as if they had the speaker; besides this they have assumed the attitude of standing aside in order to allow public business to be transacted and the public will heartily endorse them in this action. The democrats can only say they have the presiding officer; they are powerless to move in any way disadvantageous to the republicans, and with a speaker bereft of all power they cannot be expected to do anything in shaping legislation. The members of both houses were talking over matters this morning, and your correspondent gathered up a few views on the subject. The expressions of opinion were about as follows. Senator Dungan, republican.—I think on the whole our side has the better side in this compromise. The democrats have all the hurrah and show, but that is as far as it goes. We will have all the power, we will shape legislation, and can make a record that will be sustained by the people in succeeding elections. Representative Smith, of Des Moines, democrat.—I am quite well satisfied with the compromise. It was decided before we asked anything more, that we would accept the proposition, because that represented all we had been fighting for. But on the whole it seems to me the republicans have the better side and will have more power when it comes to real business Representative Yergery (rep)—The settlement of the deadlock is a great relief to me and I am rather glad it came out as it did. We have the power and they have the show. For a while things will look as if they were on top, but when the houso once get to work they and the people generally will see that they are deeply in the hole. Representative Byers (rep )—I am well pleased at tho apposition having their “drum major” so long as we have the real working force. We have the advantage when it comee to legislation and shall not be slow to use it. Representative Dobson (rep.)—I am glad the deadlock is over. We can now get down to work, and as the republicans have a great advantage so far as legislation is concerned we can well consider ourselves on top. Senator Kelly (dem.)—They came very near having to adopt my idea of casting lots to settle the matter, and it is hard to see how they got out of it. As it stands now neither side has any great advantage. The republicans may move more powerfully in committee, but when partisan matters come upon the floor of the house there will be no difference in power. Sanator Taylor (dem ) -I consider the settlement alike fair and honorable. The speakership ahorn of all its power is not very great and consists only of the hon • or. Of course the republicans in the committee they control can substitute jt republican measure for a democratic one and thus claim all credit therefor, but on the floor of the house when it really comes to partisan matters there will be no advantage either way. Senator Gobble (dem)— Both sides made a good fight and have reached very fair settlement. We can now get to work and do something, for which we may all be thankful. Representative Richman (dem )—I am perfectly satisfied with the result. Representative Gardner, of Washing ton (rep )—I am well satisfied with the result. The agreement was the best that could be made under the circumstances and I think the people of the state will consider it as the best way to arrange matters. Representative Hotchkiss (dem )—Un der the circumstances, I suppose, it was the best thing to be done, though I think the republicans should have given us the assistant postmistress and two more of the committees. Legislation is largely done in committees, and while a minority report now will have as powerful an influence as a majority report, neverthe lees we should have been given more power in that direction. But then we have got organized and can get to work and that is better than doing nothing. Representative Holbrook (dem.)—The speakership is more a matter of sentiment than anything else under the present cir cumetances. We wanted it so especially because of this very fact because it gives us a great prestige throughout the state, and apparently sustains our fight for principle. The division is quite fair and as good as could be expected under the circumstances. From the foregoing, gathered from both parties, it will be seen that the general opinion among the senators and representatives is that neither party is ahead, and if any side has gained any iblican side. we must not omit, however, is Senator Scmidt. He add: *T think it a glorious victory for our party. Just think of only forty-five of them coming up here and getting the speakership. Their bedding those five independents was enough glory for one session alone.” Hi proceedings this morning were COUNTllS. Governor.

The democrats took at their first choice the committee on railroads, each side then chose alternately till all were exhausted._ THE INAUGURATION. Preparations far a Brilliant Affeir Next Thursday. Special to THI Hawk-Rys. Des Moines, Feb. 20.—1The inauguration committee had a session to day to make arrangements for the installation of Governor Boies next Thursday. It was decided to have the military companies from Burlington, Davenport Ottumwa and Sioux City in attendance. The inauguration ceremonies will occur in the hall of the house, and according to the preparations already outlined, will be the most splendid affair of the kind ever held in the state. The estimated cost so far is about 11,000, and it is likely the amount will far exceed that. CHURCH MEMBERS SWINDLED. How Some of Doe noises’ Pious People Were Takes in. Des Moines, lo., Feb. 14.— Frank Raymond, a quiet,tunassuming man of fortyfive or fifty years of age, came to Des Moines from Sioux City about three weeks ago. He told of his grocery store in the latter town, which he had left in charge of his pious wife, and rented a room on Walnut street, announcing his intention to go into business here, told a plausible story about the goodness of his wife, attended all the church sociables, and associated himself with the members of several churches. He went to one man and purchased a horse for •125, to be paid for after the arrival of his goods from Sioux City, to another and negotiated for and secured a set of harness valued at $25 and sundries worth •15; to still another and bought a $75 baggy; and to a rival concern, which sold him a 1175 phaeton. He contracted numerous other billa, all on the strength of his honest countenance, and now he is gone no one knows whither. RAILROAD MATTERS.

By these figures Hutchinson lost 18 votes, Boies gained 9, Poyneer lost I, and Bestow gained IOO. The committee to notify the governor and lieutenant governor of their election were, Senator Engle, Representatives W. C. Farthy and Beem. The work of adding up the columns of the vote cast for governor and lieutenant governor was much greater than anticipated. The tellers took from 4.30 till 8:80 with only one short intermission for supper to do the work. The joint con vention took a recess till 7:30 afid after wards had to take two more to give the tellers the time desired. The delay was occasioned by slight errors. It was nine o’clock when the result was finally an Bounced. The announcement or Boies’ election did not receive a particle of applause. The certificates were duly signed and the convention dissolved. The house met immediately afterwards ani adjourned. This afternoon in the house the matter under consideration first was that of ap pointing journal clerks. During the last session several committee clerks did this work, but it was very unsatisfactory because of the unfamiliarity of the clerks with the work in hand. The matter was finally referred to a committee. The joint rules were adopted only a short time before the time for the joint con vention. When that time arrived the democratic members were invited to come over on the republican side, which they did, and the senate filed in and took the democratic seats. The roll was called and then counting began. It was an all afternoon job. The break in the dealock is satisfac tory’to all except the ultra-democrats. The leading democratic paper of the state pretests loudly against the accept' ance of the speakership under the re striations placed upon it. The republi cans get all the minor offices and all Ute important committees, and will have almost the entire shaping of legislation. adjourned till wednesday. House and senate both by resolution to-night resolved to adj oui nod to morrow until Wednesday next This is the regu lar vacation of a week held early in each session. __ DMitss th* Committees Des Moms, Feb. 20.—The division of the committees in the house was to-day according to stipulations. The repubicans took five committees ant ti follow*: w*7»*»d BW Judi Iowa Stock Skipper* Entitled to Tbronek Ret#* Wltk Lay Ow Privilege* > Special to Thx Hawk-Eye. Des Moines, Feb. 20.—The republican commercial exchange of this city has had representatives before the board of railroad commissioners    to request    that Iowa railroads be compeller to make such ratings that live stock in transit can be stopped at Des Moines, placed on the market and if not sold, reshipped to Chicago at through rate from the point of shipment of such freight to Chicago Such “lay over” rates being in force on the shipments through Kansas City, Omaha, Sioux City and other points, the refusal    to grant    the concession to Des    Moines is    re garded by the commercial exchange as a discrimination. In order to secure ruling a specific complaint has been entered against the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific railroad.    Audubon, Iowa stock dealers desired to bill a load of cattle to Chicago with the privilege of stopping in Des Moines and offering the cattle for sale; if sold to pay the regular freight from Audubon to Des Moines, and if not sold to have the through rate to Chicago. The road insisted upon charging local rates from Audubon to Des Moines, and from Des Moines to Chicago. The difference between the sum of the two locals and through rate is $20 per car. The right of the railroad to grant through rates with layover privilege was affirmed by the interstate commerce commission. In the case of the Rock Island vs. the Alton road with regard to shipment through Kansas City, the railroad commissioners have not yet made a decision. L TO REVISE THE FREIGHT SCHEDULE. Des Moines, Feb. 20.—The Iowa railroad commissioners to day ordered a hearing, beginning February 26, for a revision of the Iowa schedule of freight rates to correspond to the interstate rates. THE ALTON* 8 ANNUAL REPORT. Chicago, Feb. 20.—The annual report of the Chicago and Alton road for the year 1889 shows the following figures: Gross earnings $7,516,616, increase $5,151; operating expenses $4,571,736, decrease •96,348; net earnings $2,944,880, increase $101,500. _ Want* to Bay Sioux City’* Club. Siouv City, lo. Feb. 20.—President Von der Aho, of the St. Louis Browns, is endeavoring to purchase the Sioux City base ball club and franchise in the Western association. His first offer two weeks ago was refused. President Peavey, who owns the Sioux City club has just received from Von der Abe a second offer of $8,000. The Sioux City club has never paid, and is now $5,000 in debt for the team of players engaged for the coming season. President Peavy called upon the citizens to put up $5,000 immediately. Von der Ahe’s offer is held pending the result._ A Villas:* Almost Consumed. Independence, lo., Feb. 20.—The village of Aurora, ten miles northeast of here. was almost entirely wiped out by fire Monday night.

Washington, Feb. 20.—By special order to-day was set apart by the house for the opening of the debate on the report cf the committee on the world’s fair. The usual preliminary routine business was transacted with a show of impatience. The conference report on the senate bill to increase the pension of helpless soldiers was adopted. Mr. McMillan, of Tennessee, reserved the point of order that the fair bills involved appropriations and should be considered in the committee of the whole. Mr. Chandler, of Massachusetts, ex plained how the time was to be divided: one hour to himself as chairman and one hour to each of the four contending cities. To-morrow the opponents of any bill we?e to have one hour and the remainder of the day was to be devided between the representatives of the four cities. The speaker, referring to McMiT ui’b point, thought the special order } A the effect to render unnecessary any motion to go into a committee of the whole and when McMillan took a contrary view he had read a decision made in the forty-ninth congress embodying his opinion. Mr. Mills, of Texas, demanded half of the time in behalf of the opponents of the bill. The matter of recognition was one for the presiding officer. The speaker thought the debate should be arranged so as to give the fullest information to the house upon the point it desired to explain. Mr. Chandler then took the floor and optned the debate. He said the committee had two bills, one adapted to New York, Chicago and 8t. Louis and the other to Washington. Chondler took up the first bill and explained the sections briefly but sufficiently, and said that the, government was to lend its aid to the people to dignify and give a national recognition to this great national event. The only appropriation asked for under this bill was a small one to defray the expenses of a government building and the display of works of art Chandler continued his explanation of the bill, saying that it bound the government in no way to financial obligation. There was no proposition, direct or indirect, in the bill to secure a dollar from the government for any purpose not clearly stated. By the experience of the past the benefits of expositions to the people in an educational way could not be ques tioned. The go vermont should do its part. The committee asked for a million and a naif from the government to take care of its own department. The government could not do less to sustain its dignity. Turning to the second (Washington) bill he said that it differed from the others in that a fair here would depend not upon popular subscription but upon funds raised by the district government on three per cent bonds. The proceeds from tickets sold were to go not to stockholders, but to meet the bonds issued. It is supposed that the chairman of the special committee was the only member not committed. He believed that in every phase of the sub ject whether as a recognition of the services of the great discoverer or from any other phase it seemed proper that at the close of the four hundred years elapsing since the discovery of this great continent we should call the attention of the world to our condition. The inviting by the government of the people of the world to visit us and study our resources would surely be beneficial. In conclusion, he hoped that this congress would be true to the history of the coun try and set an example of patriotism and enterprise for the congresses of one hundred years hence to contemplate end follow. Mr. Flower, of New York, followed in behalf of New York. He believed the selection of New York meant the great est possible success of the undertaking. New York would assume the financial responsibility and make the fair a sue cess. The site was ready for use, containing three hundred and nine acres. No other city had met this question of a site and solved it. New York is the half way station between the greater part of th s country and the world. The American manufacturer and agriculturist would have greater incentives to exhibit his wares and products in New York city than any other by reason that he will have a larger local assemblage to be instructed and benefited, and by reason of the further fact that his goods will be thrown into comparison with the wares and products in the great commercial exchange of the continent. Therefore with the guaranty on the part of New York, the pecuni ary success is sure. With its dense population, many points of interest, ample accommodations for visitors and the beautiful site in the hands of the committee New York is better prepared than any other city. He asked if the house was prepared to vote from the treasury five to ten millions of dollars for locating the fair at Chicago. St. Louis or Washington, when it could locate it in New York without any appropriation except for the government’s exhibits. In conclusion Flower announced he had just received a telegram to the effect that Governor Hill had signed the fair bill. Flower was then followed by Moore, of New Hampshire, and Messrs. Covert, Cummings, Tracey and Quinn, all of New York in favor of the selection of New York as the site Mr. Hitt opened the debate for Chicago. He said Chicago surpassed any other place in facilities for travel and the ability to care for the people. Its hotels were on an enormous scale and had never been' overtaxed. The city was accessible to the mining regions of Pennsylvania and the great agricultural belts of the Commerce was carried on there succeeding in what they undertake. Chicago had many advantages ss to the location of the exhibition. He believed that Chicago could guarantee the financial success of the undertaking. They had raised $5,000,000 by voluntary subscription. Another guarantee was that the subscription fund, while it came mainly from Chicago, it came also from tile outside. Nearly every state in the union was represented. Then they proposed to raise $5,0C0,COO more by the issue of bonds in a manner provided by the bill. It was necessary for the state to act in order to secure a state exhibit, and especially an agricultural exhibit, which would be worthy the nation and worthy tim city in which the celebration is held, such action would be forthcoming. They would be at no expense to secure ample and convenient site. Mr. McCleary, of Kentucky, earnestly argued in favor of Chicago, saying three of the greatest national celebrations ever held in this country had been held in the east and it was now the turn of the west. He urged that the fair should not be held on the rim of the country, but in the interior. Mr. Cutcheon, of Michigan, spoke Warmly in favor of Chicago, which, he said was the most marvellous city the world had ever looked upon. Mr. Taylor, of Illinois, said there was great country west of which the people if New York knew but little, and he de red the fair in the west to educate the people of New York. He concluded by telling of the wealth of the country surrounding Chicago and the patronage which could be expected to be bestowed upon a fair held there. Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, said Chicago was the proper place for the fair. If this was to be a European fair, let us go London, [Applause ] If it was to be for the benefit of the patriotic citizens of this country, it should go to the great interior city, representative of the great industries of the country and hold ther an exposition that would be an honor to the country. Mr. Lawler, of Illinois, said he held petition signed by thousands of workmen in every city in the union (except New York) asking that the exposition be located in Chicago. He detailed her advantages. Mr. Chipman, of Michigan, followed in a glowing tribute to Chicago, the present metropolis of the west end the future metropolis of the wh^le country Mr. Frank, of Missouri, opened the battle for St. Louis. The site for the fair, he said, was to be choeen upon sound reasons. Chicago vied with New York    in    political animus, supplemented    by    sordid mercenary aims St. Louis offered advantages of location and    was accessible to the greatest number of citizens of the United States and the southern republics. St. Louis’ hospitality was known the world over. Her climate was excellent. She would bid the world welcome to a nursery of virtue, not a morass of vice. Mr. Niedringhaus, of Missouri, extolled the talents of    the    business men of 8t. Louis. He sasd he had there been able to start and carry on a business that had not been equal in the world. The people of St Louis knew how to hold a fair and make it a success. Mr. Stone, of Missouri, enlarged upon the advantages of the geographical portion of St. Louis, of the mineral wealth surrounding the country, the cereal products and the great internal commerce. Mr. Breckinridge, of Arkansas, fol lowed in the same line. Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, spoke in complimentary terms of the other coning cities but dismissed New York and Chicago on account of their location and Washington for financial reasons. Mr. Caruth, of Kentucky, closed for St. Louis. Mr. McComaa, of Maryland, was for an exposition wherever it was to be held. But it was historically fitting that the exposition should be held here in Washington, in the district bearing the name of the discoverer of the country. He appealed to the friends of Chicago, New York and St. Louis to come together in peace here on national ground. Mr. Lee, of Virginia, Coleman, of Louisiana, Compton and Stockbridge, of Maryland, also spoke in favor of Washington, and then the house adjourned until to-morrow. A proposed night session was abandoned. IHE DEDICATOR DF HIS FREE LIBRARY AT P1TTSBUBB. PUBLIC President Harrison’s Address - Other Speeches—The Amount of Donation to be Increased - A Description of the Building. THIS SENATE. An Investigation Order** of Deputy M*r*M»l Sounder*’ Assassination. Washington, Feb. 20.—The resolution heretofore offered by Chandler calling on the attorney general for information regarding the assassination of Deputy Marshal 8aunders at Quincy, Florida, was taken up and Pasco resumed his remarks in regard to it. He sent to the clerk’s desk and had read various documents, newspaper articles aud proceedings of public meetings denunciatory of the conduct and character of the United States court and its officers in the northern district of Florida These representatives, he said, might tend to throw some light on the causes leaeing up to the sad affair at Quincy. Tn conclusion Pasco offered an amendment directing the attorney general to inform the senate, also whether any efforts had been made by the department of justice to correct the action of the officers of the court which resulted in partisan injuries, made up mainly from one political party. Also directing the attorney general to inform the senate whether he had any information cf the official letter written by Marshal Mizell directing the names of “true and tried republicans” for jurors, etc. Mr. Hawley said the remarks of the senator from Florida and his amendment seemed a premature apology for the murder. It was evident that the amendment was intended to mitigate in the judgment of the public mind the crime which even a democratic paper in Florida stigmatized as brutal, infamous and cowardly. The senator (Pasco) has represented Saunders as not having always been a good man; and a fair in ference from the remarks would be that there would not have been much objec lion to Saunders being killed if it could only have been done in a leg* objectable way. He wished the senator (Pasco) to understand distinctly that his speech was regarded by the republican senators as an attempt to make a sort of left-handed apology for the murder and to evade investigation Mr. Pasco said he made no excuse for anybody and had expressly declared to Pittsburg, Feb. 20 —The dedication of the Carnegie free library took place to-day. The elegant music hall wa? filled by the audience long before the hour for opening. At eight o’clock President Harrison and Mr. Carnegie arrived. The president, Mr. Carnegie, Enoch Prott, of Baltimore, and George Lauder occupied a box to the left of the stage. In the right hand box were seated Governor Beaver, Congressmen Dalzell and Bayne and Prof. Langley. The exercise* opened with the «inging of ‘‘America” by the Mozart society. After religious services Mr. Carnegie publicly thanked the committee for their devotion to the work, the president, the governor, the congressmen and Mr. Pratt, of Baltimore, the pioneer of free libraries, for their presence, having honored the speaker and citizens by traveling hundreds of miles that they might set the stamp of their approval upon the dedication. At the conclusion of the address Carnegie handed Mayor Pearson the key to the building and the latter, in a brief speech, sc cepted the trust imposed on him. President Harrison was the next speaker. After paying his compliments to Allegheny county, he said in part: ‘ I saw to day in these great works of human industry young men not yet in middle life controlling great mills and the suggestion cane to my mind how this institution would promote the interests and intelligence of the ynnng men of this prosperous country. Because it is the mind of man that has wrought all these great achievements The hand is not cunning in itself. It is from the brain it gets the impulse and teaching that enables it to perform the difficult tasks which are alone to distinguish man. I hope this institution may carry with it always and with every book that rests upon its shelf the aug gestion to those who will participate in its blessings to “lead and think.” Be cause, unleis thinking accompanies read ing there is not much profit in books, congratulate you that you have citizens who could conceive a work like this. May I not do what I will with my own,’ is the selfish spirit that dedicates to personal luxury the fruits of toil to be paramount. How much higher and nobler a use of accumnlative wealth have we before us in this magnificent structure to-night? It gives me great pleasure to be associated with the inaug uration of this great enterprise. No one can tell how wide and deep and strong the stream will be that shall have its origin here. We cannot follow it trough the generations that are to come, t is left in your charge, citizens of Allegheny, and speaking for its generous donar I declare it now open to public use and a place, of assembly for a1: and I charge you that you care for it in such a manner that its highest useful ness may be reached and that it may not in your hands fall below the high bought which was in the mind him who aas out of his own personal means erected and dedicated this library to the outlie use.” [Applause]. President Harrison was followed by Mr. Pratt, of Baltimore; Governor Beaver, Congressmen Dalzell, Payne and others. The presidential party were then escorted through the art gallery, after which they entered carriages and were drivan to the Duquesne club. he doors of the library were then thrown open for the remainder of the evening to public inspection. The building cost. $300,000 and includes a library, art gallery and music hall. It is stated semi officially that Car negie has decided to increase his dona tion for the library to Pittsburg from 1,000,000 to $2,000,000. The original donation was $500 OOO.

What proportion of the attendants at the fair would be composed of foreign visitors? Perhaps one fifty thousandth at most He expected fifteen million Americans to attend the fair. Would it be proper to require seven millions of people to travel to the extreme edge of the country as they would have to do if the fair was held in New York? In conclusion he said toe fair at Chicago would enlist the enthusi sstic efforts of all the people and be a memorable and magnificent success He alluded to the outrages committed by federal officers in Florida and declared it was soch acts which had led desperate and misguided men to resort to lawless acts to protect themselves. He declared the senator from New Hampshire (Chan dler) responsible for the murders in Florida *nd the destruction of the happiness of households there by his emissaries. Mr. Chandler said many indictments had been found in Florida for election frauds and attempts made to arrest anc try tim offenders.

Tit* Government Forty Sustain Lo**** —Til* Socialist* Doubt* Their Vet*. Berlin, Feb. 20 —The general election for the members of the reichstsg took place to day. The size of the vote polled was phenomenal. In he first, second and third districts of this city supplementary elections will be necessary also in many outside points. At midnight the apparent result is the government parties have lost fifteen Beats and the socialists throughout Germany have doubled their vote. Among the prominent socialists elected are Lieb-knecht and Binger, the latter defeating Richter, one of the most ditinguished eaders of the German liberal party. In Berlin the anti-semitic faction abstained from voting because the candidates did not meet the approval of the Cartel electoral committee The indications are the Deutsche-Freisinnige party may secure two seats in Berlin and it is not unlikely this party will lose all the others throughout the country. The great surprise of the election is the enormous and unexpected increase in the socialist vote This party manifested strength in places where it wae unknown before and other parties will h&ye to make a firm combination against it to stem the tide on the supplemtary elections, of which there will be many. In Berlin alone the socialist Tote was increased 20,000 and the conferva rives lost 34,000. The socialists were successful at many points through out the country and have good prospects for success in many of the section elections. _ GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS* An Illinois Lady Strnok Dead—Two Indian* Ladle* lr J arad.

He acknowledged his guilt on the witness stand, and the judge instructed the jury to find the defendant guilty if his testimony was to be believed. To the surprise of the entire court, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty and put the costs of the trial upon the county.
