Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - March 7, 1890, Burlington, Iowa mmTHE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1839.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, PRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 7, lb90. [Pmc*: 15 Cents rn Wm. A mmmmm caum in iilijiei HTE A SET-TO DI THE HOOSE. It All Ends Good Naturedly aid the Bill in Controversy Passes-The Senate Proceedings—Tariff Arguments - Capital Notes. Washington. March 6—The speaker laid before the house a message from the president transmitting the report of the Chippewa Indian commission; referred. The retiiion of tho Womans’ Industrial league was presented, asking that two women be appointed on the world’s fair committee of 1892; referred. The entire morning was consumed in a discussion of a bilf for compulsory at' tendance of witnesses before the regia tors and receivers of land officers, but no action was taken thereon. Mr Lawler, cf Illinois, presented petition signed by *ix thousand railway postal clerks, praying for an increase of salary. The house then ic committee of the whole, proceeded to the consideration of public building bills. The follo wing bills were laid asi de with favorab’e recommendations: For a public building at Galesburg, Illinois, to cost 875,000; for a public building at Ashland, Wisconsin, to cost 875,000. The bill called up of an appropriaton of 8200 for a public building at Sau Jose, California, wss the object of a vigorous attack from Cannon, of Illinois. He criticised the action of the committee on public buildings and grounds, and alluded to the “pork in the pot.” In his own town, Danville, the postoffice site wan leased for 8700 a year. That was sufficient for a postoffice building there, and the business was more there than the average business of town where the committee provided for the erection of public buildings. Mr. Milliken replied that nobody doubted the gentleman’s town was a ch ap town. Mr. Cannon said he would content himself with voting against bills which his judgment told him were not proper. The gentlemen must answer to his constituents for his votes. If the member’s constituency will excuse him, when he told them he had got for them 875,000 or 8200.000, in compensation for improvident appropriations, he (Cannon) supposed it was all right. Mr. Milliken said he would endeavor to get along with his constituents without a lecture from the gentleman from Illinois. If it was not for his friendly feelings towards the gentleman from Illinois he would suggest further that he had never seen a man attempt to impute another man that he had “pork in the pot,” that he was not the first man to get a hand into the pot. Mr. Connor asked the gentleman to be kind enough to explain his last remark. Did the gentleman mean to say he (Connor) had asked or intimated he desired the committee to reccommend any bill? Mr. Milliken said the gentleman had severely reflected upon the committee Mr. Cannon said he had criticized the committee as he had a right to do. He had not criticized the gentleman personally, and if the gentleman, he continued, in his zeal sought by innuendo, or by intimidation to allege that if it had not been for his friendly relations with me he could urge aught against my charac ter, or otherwise here and now let us have it, Beth Milliken. As he was uttering these words he slowly approached Milliken, and as he finished the sentence he tapped that gentleman on the shoulder. amid laughter in the house. Throughout the colloquy both gentlemen manifested a good deal of excitement, but the house was very good humored and thoroughly enjoyed the controversy which ended by Milliken disclaiming any intention to insinuate anything against the gentleman, who was as nearly perfect as any man in the world. Mr. Clunie said that if he had known the bill was going to crest so much disturbance he might not have introduced it. But he had thought that it would not be immodest in him (not having a public building in his district) to ask congress to give him one. He did not believe after he had voted for every bill coming from the republican side, the gentleman from Illinois would create so much excitement over the first bill coming from the democratic side. [Laughter.] After further debate the till was laid aside favorably and the committee ria ing, it, together with the preceding bills, was reported to the house. In the house Cannon made a vigorous fight against the Washington postoffice bill, moving to adjourn amid cries of "dilatory motion” from the democrats, and raising the point, no quorum, amid shouts of “filibustering” from the same source. The speaker counted a quorum and the bill was passed, as were the other bills reported favorably. Adjourned. XHB SKN ATK. XA# PaasiS- Womea’s Pension BUI Otl&sr Legislation. Washington, March 6 —The bill to increase the efficiency and reduce the expenses of the signal corps of the army and for the transfer of the weather bureau to the department of agriculture was reported and placed on the calendar. Among the bills introduced and re ferred were the following: For a menu ment to John Ericcson; for the punuh-ment cf officers and others for selecting jurors with reference to political affiliations; to amend the revised statutes so as to permit the purchase and registry of foreign built vessels by the citizens of the United States for employment in for eign trade. Among bills taken from the calendar and passed were the following: Giving a pension of 975 a month to the daughter of Major General Worth, and increasing to 8100 a month the pension of the widow of Major General Warren. The senate then proceeded to the con eideration of executive business, after which it adjourned._ GKM KH AL, WASHINGTON NKW®. Brewer! ane Hop Growan Botan ta* Wait aas Moose Committee. Washington, March 6 —The ways and means committee to-day heard repreaen tatives of the brewers’ association in op president Lemans, of Chicago, presented rn number ©^statistics and argued that an increase of duty would not benefit the American hop growers, as they produced ell the hops required for heme consarn ption, except rn few imported for the Aa poring of beer. Vioe President Bchannan, of the Brewers* association, argued in confirms lion of Lefen’a statement Chairman lfofrhn«y feed from e memorial, jointly drown up by the brewers end hop Blowen, in which the former agre ~ gaeiat the hop growers in securing adequate protection their product Witness admitted this was the result of an agreement by which » brewers vert it He said the distillers sided with brewers in their opposition to prohibition, which would not be a consistent course if more whiskey was consumed nuder the prohibitary law than in its absence. Mr. Scharman persisted, however, in his statement that prohibition decreased the consumption of beer and increased that of whisky. CKAUGKS PREFERRED. A copy of the charges preferred by Geoerai Hastings against Commander McCalls and other officers of the United States steamship Enterprise, of scandalous conduct at Bermuda, has been referred by the secretary of the navy to officers concerned for an explanation. The charges are to the effect that McCall a and three other officers were shamefully drank and disorderly at Hamilton, Bermuda, on Sunday while the Enterprise was at anchor in the harbor with the dead body of the late Minister Pendleton on board. A TRANSFER OF ARMY HEADQUARTERS Members of the Kansas congressional delegation had a conference with Secretary Proctor to-day in regard to'the proposed transfer of the headquarters of the department of Missouri, from Leavenworth to St. Louis, and the secretary consented to defer action a few days. The reason for the proposed change is it is regarded as undesirable to have the department headquarters and post headquarters at the same place a big bond purchase. The secretary of the treasury purchased over 82 000,000 of United States bonds to-day and thereby reduced the avainable surplus to about 828,000,000. As the secretary is disinclined to reduce the surplus below 820,000,000. A few repetitions of to day’s operations would soon result in a temporary suspension of b nd purchases, at least so far as the four per cents are concerned. THE APACHE REMOVAL PROBLEM. A few days ago General Howard addressed a letter to Chairman Perkins, of the house committee on Indian affairs, in relation to the proposed transfer of the Apaches to Ft Sill, Indian territory. Ho expressed the opinion that inasmuch as General Miles had had his say before the committee, it should give General Crook an opportunity to be heard. He also favored the removal of the Indians. Chairman Perkins has written him in reply, saying it is not the desire of the committee to become a party in any way to a controversy seemingly existing between the friends of Crook and Miles. He believes much of the fear entertained by the settlers of New Mexico and Arizona is exaggerated, but thinks it only right to take into consideration the wishes and interests of these thousands of settlers who assert since the removal of the Apaches they enjoyed their first security. Old Mexico is also opposed to the removal to Fort Sill, but the committee has not yet determined what action will be taken. THE CIVIL SERVICE INVESTIGATION. The cross-examination of Ex Postmaster Paul, of Milwaukee, before the house committee on civil service was conducted to day by Commissioner Roosevelt, who pressed Paul for an explanation as to how it happened that at the time in the Milwaukee office in esch of the six certifications they were so "cooked” that the six men entitled were not certified and six men not entitled were chosen. Paul said that was a matter for the local board to answer. He did not knowingly violate any of the civil service rules. A POSTAL TELEGRAPH BILL. Representative Taylor, of Illinois, today introduced in the house a bill to provide for the establishment cf a system of government telegraphs for the use of the government and the people, to be operated ai part of the postal system. THE CUSTOMS COLLECTING BILL The senate bill establishing a customs collecting system to consist of North and South Dakota, was favorably reported to the house to day. THE KQECUTIVB SESSION. Another day passed without the senate coming to a decision as to what will be done with the newspaper correspondent! who refused to tell Dalpha special committee how they get the proceedings of the executive session- The discussion t day was devoted largely to the power of the senate, under the constitution to punish the correspondents. PAPER MONEY. The house committee en banking and currency to-day discussed at length the bill providing for the issue of paper currency notes in denominations of five, ten, twenty-five and fifty cents. The subject was referred to the sub-committee for consideration and report. A FAVORABLE BEFORT ORDERED. The senate committee on military affairs to-day ordered a favorable report made upon the bill to appropriate money to reimeburs the states of California. Nevada and Oregon for expenses incurred by them in aiding in the suppression of the rebellion. THE PACIFIC RAILROADS BILL. The house committee on Pacific rail roads bill resumed the consideration of the Vandever bill for refunding the debt of the Pacific railroads to the govern ment, and got through sixteen sections which are substantially like the Outh Waite bill. and concern the Union Pacific alone. The remainder of the bill proposes a refunding plan to meet the case of the Crntral Pacific railroad, and be fore entering upon its consideration the question arose as to whether the committee should report the bill covering both companies, or should present cepa rate bills in case of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific. The hour of ad j "nimment arrived before the decision was reached. AN INTERSTATE COMMISSION HEARING. The interstate commerce commission to-day gave a hearing to the railroad companies in the matter of the rate on corn and corn products from Indian apolis to the seaboard. On February 7 the commission made an order directing the Pennsylvania and the Baltimore and Ohio roads to cease discrimination in these ta es. The railroads claim the interests of the carriers and producers require lower rates on corn than on its products. They also maintain that the assumption of the commission that corn reaching the Indianapolis market is not affected by water competition is decidedly erroneous. CONFIRMATIONS. Frank H.

Columbus,    Mil    CIM    DITO    DAT    COACHES    I    fport-    A    m»jcri*y    of    them Chicago, March 6.—Unusual interest is attached to to-day’s meeting here of the democratic state central committee on account of the published announcement in this morning’s Chicago Times that ex-Governor Palmer would ce the condidate for the United States senatorship. The Times says that Palmer has written a letter to th* committee in which he says that should the sentiments of the democrats of Illinois as manifested through their delegates to the coxing convention be that the democratic candidate forUnited States senator should be named by that convention, and should that convention cognizant of the record and principles of General Palmer, unanimously declare him its choice and request him to make a personal canvass throughout the state at the coming legislative election, then only would he accept the nomination conferred thus and challenge his republican opponent to joint debate in every congressional dis trict in the state and national issues. To an Associated Press reporter to-day the chairman of the committee admitted the correctness of the Times’ publication, and indications point to an almost uhs nimity of opinion among the members of the committee in favor of the nomination of General Palmer for the senatorship by the coming state convention. The morning session of the executive committee was devoted merely to the consideration of the financial report The committee met at 2 p. rn. Hon J. D Wright, of Petersburg, moved that the coming state convention be held at Springfield. Mr. Orendorff seconded the motion and Sprin field carried off the honor without an opposing vote. Francis A. Hoffman, democratic ex-candidate for state treasurer, was called upon for a speech. He favored a long campaign; the party two years ago was handicapped in many senses. The time has come, he said, when we should take a clear stand as to the great issues before us; let us adopt our doctrine and urge its principles, strike whom it may. Aside from the regular democratic phalanx that can always be relied upon he can rely upon assistance from various elements, conditions and circumstances. First and foremost is the tariff question. The success that the Illinois tariff reform league is meeting with throughout the state is gaining adherents from among those heretofore not affiliated with the democratic party is one of the great signs of the times. Another thing which gives hope is that in all the farmer’s alliances or combinations throughout^the country wherever the great doctrines of the democracy have been mentioned, they have been re-ceived with great enthusiasm. Speaking of the German element, Hoffman called attention to the editorial of Mr. Raster in the Staats-Zeitung, saying it was not within the power of the republican party to prevent defeat in Illinois and Wisconsin. No matter what action they took it was for the democratic party to say whether they will be victorious or not. He cited similar remarks from German editors in Wisconsin, and said the Germania, (newspaper) of Milwaukee, and other papers of the same char acier have come out and delared that if the democratic party will in its platform oppose the laws that have been passed in Wisconsin and Illinois in preference to the teaching of German and other alien languages, they will support the democratic candidate. Mr. Hoffman said there is not a man in the United States who favors having German taught in a manner that will take away the teachings of the English language, but the Germans declare that the law, as now worded, is contrary to their interest We can easily have a plank in our platform said he, that will put this matter in full harmony with the everlasting principles of our party. We will thus gain hundreds and thousands of adherents throughout the whole northwest. As far as the labor element and farmers are concerned they have got be yond the belief that the tariff as now framed has benefited or will benefit labor. In conclusion Hoffman said: You must have not only an idea but also a man. I know a man in waom are the required qualities to make him a leader in the coming conflict and to make that conflict successful. That man is no other than Gdv. John M Palmer. ’ ’ [Great applause. ] Chairman Campbell then read a letter received from Governor Palmer in re sponse to an invitation to be present at the meeting to day. In it Mr. Palmer •ays the convention ought to meet in Jane. "I am anxious to meet the com alit tee,” says he, "for personal reasons, which are that I desire to be clearly understood with ref erence to tile senatorial question I wish it clearly understood I am in no sense a candidate for senator. Ail I evar said is that I think the state convention ought to adopt it as the permanent rule of our party government to nominate the candidate for senate, and that if my view of the party policy in that respect is accepted I should accept the nomination and make a canvass, but would greatly prefer some other person be nom mated. The motive that leads to this suggestion is that I do not desire to be a member of the senate, and will only consent to be a candidate before the peo pie in order to vindicate the principle of electing the senator by a popular vote as nearly as possible. I wish to be understood as not urging my views upon the party; on the contray, if there is any considerable opposition to the plan, I suggest, I would for the sake of harmony advise that it be abandoned. We will carry the legislature if we make a united, energetic canvass. Let nothing be done that will divide us or dampen the enthusiasm of the party.” The riding of this letter was greeted with great applause June 4 was selected ai the date of the convention, and it was ordered that thai representation of the various counties be based on the vote cast at the last presidential election and that there be one delegate for every four ate this evening restricting the state for congressional purposes, and it will become a law with the governor’s signature. All the democrats supported the measure. lilleels aune main.

March ft. J The candidates put up by the democrats for warder??, state printer and bit der were not hard to find. They had none of them sought the nominations and the mere mintion of the name was enough to secure the nomination. None of them except McCluen, knew previously that they were to be brought out as candidates, and after they were there was no perturbation among them for fear they should be elected and have to change locations suddenly. The republican candidates have been bt fore the people for some time, and after having secured their nominations they rested easy in. their minds and confidently expected election. Mr. McCluen, the democratic candidate for the Fort Madison wardenship has been making active canvass for the past two months and succeeded in turni cg aside one republican caucus vote—Hanchett. When the joint convention was called to order Perkins introduced a resolution fixing the order of roll calls beginning with warden of the Ft. Madison penitentiary. Bolter, in order to give Dodgeand Wolfe lime to come in. moved a reversal of the order, and during the discussion of thie Dodge cair e in, and a pair was arranged between Wolfe and Caldwell. The resolution, as originally offered, was adopted and the roil called. Owing to the similarity of names there wss great difficulty in getting the vote recorded cor redly. It was finally finished, and the vote stoou: McMillan 76, McCluen 72 Ha was declared elected. The reason for Hanchett's refusal to support the re publican nominee was that his candidate, Jarvis, failed to get the republican nomination for that position, and he was determined to do what he could to defeat McMillan. Having entered the caucus and partaken of its deliberations it seems like unpardonable treachery for him to have acted thus. The republicans will of course kindly remember his action. One thing which greatly talks in Hanchett’ s favor, however, is the fact that he voted for Allision all the way through and in in this joint convention he supported all the other republican nominees. In nominating Meek the democrats worked to retain the good will of Senator Barnett. Meek was from Barnett’s county and of course Barnett could not not help being pleased at this recognition. The result, however, was for the repuclican and Barr was elected by a vote of 77 to 71. George H. Ragsdale was elected state printer and Otto Nelson state binder by the same vote. The joint convention occupied all the morning as a roll call had to be made for each election. AN OLD SETTLER’S MEETING HOUSE. Senator Dodge introduced a bill Tuesday, which is really unique and original. He seemed to think that as provisions have been made for the comfort and protection of several honorable classes of men, the old settlers should be provided for in some way or other. According! he introduced his bill, which was as foi lows: A bill for an acts to provide for the purchase of property for the purpose of holding old settlers’ meeting, and to keep the same in repair.
