Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - March 26, 1890, Burlington, Iowa /THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1839.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, MARCH 26, 1890. [PfclCK: 15 CSKTS PKK Wbbk* THE FAIRALL PISS®. IHE COLDMBOS EIPOSITIOI TO BE BELD II CHIMBO II 1893. The Measure Adopted in the House by a Vote of 202 to 49—Warm Debate Participated in on all Sides—Capital Notes. Washington, March 25.—The galleries of the house were filled this morning by the eager throng who wished to witness the final struggle in the World’8 Fair legislation in the house. Much enthusiasm and illy suppressed excitement was exhibited on all sides. Even the members of the house were on the qui vive and the hall was mellodious with the hum of conder sational murmurs till the speaker’s gavel fell and commanded silence. Immediately after the approval of the journal, Chandler, of Massachusetts, called up for consideration the World’s Fair bill. The bill having been read in extenso, Chandler, on behalf of the committee, offered an amendment providing that the commission shall appoint a board of lady managers of such number and to perform such duties as may be pre* scribed by the commission and the board may appoint one or more members of all committees authorized to award prizes for exhibits which may be produced in whole or in part by female labor. Adopted. Also, an amendment providing that one of the members of the board created to be charged with the selection of the government exhibite shall be chosen by the fish commission. Adopted. Mr. Chandler in opening the debate expressed the satisfaction which he felt in being able to state that Chicago, which had been selected by the house as the site, had proved itself before the committee, equal to all that had been expected of it. The committee had found that Chicago had not only comprehended the importance and magnitude of the enterprise, but had entered into it with a determined spirit which had impressed the committee with the conviction that it would be successful with its undertaking. He believed that the bill was perfectiy constitutional and he advocated it upon its merits, because he believed that, its purpose was wiss and patriotic. The committee was satisfied that Chicago had raised a bonafide subcription of $5,000,000, and was also satisfied that Chicago had done more than had been expected of any competing city in agreeing that the subscription should be raised to $10,000 OOO In order to meet the conservative element which did not favor holding the fair, the bill provided that the president should not issue a proclamation inviting foreign nations until he was satisfied that the contribution was a bona fide one. Chandler then offered an amendment to his original motion to be considered as pending, for the dedication of the buildings of the world s fair with appropriate ceremonies October 12, 1892; and further providing that the exposition shall be onened to visitors not later than May I, 1893, and close not later than October 30, 1893. After considerable debate had been indulged in between Selden, of New York, and the friends of the bill, the former gave notice that he would at the proper time move to recommit the bill with instructions to select a committee to report it back when a guarantee of $10 000,000 shall be secured by the citizens of Chicago, the sufficiency and legality of which shall be satisfactory to said committee. Mr. Chandler’s amendment postponing the time for holding the fair until 1893 was then adopted without division. On motion of Carlisle an {amendment was adopted providing that the government buildings be built of such material as can be taken out and sold after the exposition. Mr. Cummings, of New York, said he appealed to the house for fair play towards Chicago. New York had lost the fight through treachery in her own ranks. We were, said he, handsomely whipped What are we going to do about it? I, at least, am going to act the manly part. I stand by the committee because I believe it is manly and right The action of the senate may yet be unfavorable to Chicago. If so New York can again enter the lists with honor. If that time does not come consider I honor myself, my state and my country by standing by Chicago. Mr. Frank said nothing should be done to retard the progress or imperil the sue cess of a fair in Chicago. Mr. Hatch of Missouri expressed himself satisfied with the clause providing that the president, before issuing proclamation, shall satisfy himself as to the genuineness of the subscriptions. There was nothing left for congree to do but extend to Chicago every legit! mate encouragement for making the fair a great national success. Mr. Lower of New York said he would vote to recommit the bill and make Chicago show her subscription lists. Mr. Raines, of New York, addressing Spinola, said: “Doe* not the gentleman think it was fortunate we were beaten, because if things had gone as they now are going, we should have lost a majority of the Tammany management because they would have been inside Ludlow street jail?" [Laught r.] Mr. Mason expressed the belief that New York did not want to make the fair a success. The way to help Chicago was not to throw discredit upon her. Several others who had favored Washington, New York and St. Louis expressed earnest hope for the success of Chicago. Mr. Selden’a motion to recommit the bill with instructions was defeated without division. The bill was then passed—yeas $0$, nays 49. The negative votes were cast by those members who had been from the first opposed to holding any world’s fair. After a call of the house, roll call on adjournment and roll call on going into the committee of the whole for consideration of the Wyoming admission bill, which was productive of no good result, the house adjourned. the government in the region of Alaska as compared with its condition in 1870; also full information as to the impending extinction of the sea otter industry and kindred lines of inquiry. Mr. Dawes offered a resolution which was agreed to calling on the secretary of the interior for information as the land patents issued to Indians under the severalty act. Mr. Hoar gave notice that he would not call up the Montana election cases until Monday next. The anti trust bill was then taken up and George addressed the senate. At the close of George’s speech a motion by him to refer the bill and amendment to the judiciary committee created quite a lengthy discussion, in the course of which Vest said the country knew the receptacle in which the senate deposited its dead, and there was no longer any hope of concealing it. The country now knew that when senators desired the death of a bill and were not anxious to place themselves on record as having struck the blow, they referred it to the judiciary committee, where it slept the last sleep. Mr. George’s motion was rejected and the question was then taken on Reagan’s amendment (adding to the bill his antitrust bill as sections three, four and five) and it was agreed to. Mr. Sherman moved to amend the first section by adding to it the proviso suggested by George: “The act shall not be construed to apply to any arrangement, agreement or combination between laborers made with a view of lessening the number of hours of labor or increasing the wages; nor among the persons engaged in horticulture or agriculture with a view of enhancing the price of their products.’’ Agreed to. Mr. Hoar’s motion to strike out of the first section the words, “Of deferent states, or between two or more citizens or corporations, or both, of the United States and foreign states, or citizens or corporations thereof;’’ agreed to. Mr. Ingales* amendment aming at dealing in futures and options, was agreed to. Mr. Coke then offered an amendment consisting of eight new sections, moving to strike out all of the bill except Ingalls’ amendment and substitute his own. The substitute was laid on the table. Mr. Stewart moved to insert in the first section the words “or of the value of money by which such cost may be ad vanced or reduced,’’ and Hoar to insert after “money” the words, “or of gold or silver ." Pending action the senate adjourned. I WAS AWI BOLD MOST CLAK S. J., HORRIFIED (ITES TEE {MASHIE OF A “CHURCH MEMBER.” He Posed as a Contractor Bat was Chiefly Engaged in Robbing the Homes of Trusting Friends— His Wife an Accomplice. Nnw York, March 25.—The fashionable suburban town of Mont Clair, New Jersey, is horrified over the discovery that one of her most respected citizens, James Tuthill, a mason contractor, is a burglar, who has been robbing houses right and left for a year past. He was identified by an accident, one of his victims grappling with him in a house one night last week and unmasking him. search of his house revealed thousands of dollars worth of jewelry, money and plate hid in the cellar. Tuthill and his pretty wife are in jail. His former friends believe he is the captain of a rob ber band and that his wife was a trusted lieutenant. They were both highly respected in Mont Clair, and were good church members. (MENIER AL WASHINGTON NEWS THS S KNATZ.

On motion of Morrill the senate proceeded to consider the senate hill to enable the secretary of the trees urv to gather full and authentic inform anon as to the present condition and of the fur seal interests of Secretary Noble Decides a Soldiers’ Homestead Entry Case. Washington, March 25—Secretary Noble to-day rendered a decision in a case involving the assignability of the right to make soldiers’ additional homestead entry. The secretary decides the question in the negative and says by construing the soldiers’ homestead act as a whole it is clear congress did not intend the privilege granted to a soldier to be subject to barter and sale or assignment to another. THE EXTRADITION TREATY. Washington, D. C., March 25.— The convention supplementary to the tenth article of the treaty of 1842 between Great Britain and the United States concluded at Washington, July 12, 1889, and the ratifications exchanged at London, March ll, 1890, was pro claimed to day. The additions to the old list of extra ditable crimes were made public some time ago. The convention further provides that a fugntive criminal shall not be surrendered if the offense in respect of which his surrender is ddemanded be of a political character, or if he proves the requisition for his surrender is made With a view to try or punish him for an offense of a political character. No person surrendered shall be triable or tried for any crime or offense committed prior to the extradition. WASHINGTON GOSSIP. The house committee on invalid pensions to-day authorized a favorable report on the bill introduced in the house last week by Morrill of Kansas The bill provides for disabilty pensions to all soldiers who have reached the age of sixty-two years. Having once reopened the subject of duties on sugar the republican members of the ways and means committee find it a hard matter to adjust them satisfac torily. To-day refiners were here in force from New York, Boston and Phil adelphia. Arguments were heard for and against the proposed reduction of duty en sugar. The conscience fund was enlarged by $1,500 received to-day from New York, the sender stating it is the last payment with twenty-five percent over and above the amount he defrauded the govern ment of years ago. The president to-day nominated Pay Director Thomas H. Tooner of the navy as chief of the bureau of provisions and clothing and paymaster general with the rank of commodore. The house committee on invalid pen eions to- ay authorized a favorable re port of the bill providing that any soldier or sailor wounded in service and who received more than one wound, where one of such wounds amounts to total disability and the other wounds create disability, then such person shall receive pension rated without regard to rank for each wound received. Pro vided. however, the amount shall not ex coed $72 per month. Senator Proctor, in response to the house resolution asking if, in his opin-on, any reduction of public expenses would result from the transfer of the pension bureau from the interior to the war department, expresses the opinion that a decided reduction of expenses would follow, the amount of which could not well be estimated. THS CHEROKRX COMMISSION. The members of the Cherokee commis sion met to-day and heard statements from representatives of the Cherokee and other Indian tribes in Indian territory. Among those who appeared before the commission were Chief Mayes and ex Chief Bushyhead of the Cherokee nation Several propositions were submitted to the commission and it was stated by them if their propositions could be made the basis of an agreement the Cherokees would consent to a concession of their lands. Chief Mayes’ prbpositions are substantially that the government shall fulfill its obligation to expell from the Cherokee nation all non-citizens; a joint commission to be appointed to determine the question of citizenship claimed by several thousand freedmen now in the territory; the government to relinquish ell right to settle with the friendly In diana on the Cherokee lends east of the ninety-sixth parallel, and the govern ment to indicate a willingness to pay a fair cash value for the Cherokee outlet Mayes and Bushyhead, however, disclaim authority to speak for the people The commission will probably leave Washington for he Indian territory with in the next few days. CONTESTED ELECTION GASES. The house committee on elections to day disposed of two contested election cases, namely, Poesy vs. Parrott from the Ant Indiana district, and Bowe* va. Buchanan from the ninth Virginia district In both of these esses the com mines will recommend that the sitting member be allowed to retain his seat so that in seven election esses passed upon by it to the present time the com mitten has favored four republicans and three democrats. NBW YORK’S D1SGRACB. TM Grand Jury’s Report on tho Corruption of tho ShorSff’o Cinco. New York, March 25 —The grand jury to-day handed down a long presentment to Judge Fitzgerald in which the sheriff’s office is characterized as a disgrace to the city and a shame to civilization. The foreman of the grand jury said the inquiry had failed to reveal a single redeeming element in the management of the sheriff’s office. It was a black record of violated law, tardy justice, forced settlements, corruption and bribery. It was no longer a question of what ought to be done to remedy the existing evils, but what must be done at once and without delay. The foreman asked that copies of the presentment be sent to the governor and state legislature. The presentment, in referring to sheriff sales, says that durir g three years, ended January I, 1889, one firm of auctioneers conducted sheriff sales from which was realized the sum of $1,357,503. Of this sum $43 937 was divided between the sheriff and the auctioneer. In the year 1889 the sheriff’s profits were over $50,000. How much more he received for extra compensation cannot be learned because of the looseness of his accounts. Under the systems in vogue deputy sheriffs, to realize substantial pecuniary advantages, are almost compelled to commit criminal acts—certainly to lay aside all ideas of honesty and integrity. For twenty years past, says the jury, there has been an utter subversion of public interest to personal gain, and the employment of men of ignorance and cupidity in the sheriff's office. creek yesterday in the mountains and tne boat capsized.^ Bing was drowned I and Mr. Miller, it is feared, is fatally injured. _ HORS*WHIPPED IN A BANK A Bls Yester* Resection Iv CUetco SMT.

Des Moines, March 25.—Yesterday a scheme was on foot among the democrats in the house to present a resolution for , a resubmission of the prohibition question, but Captain Head forestalled teem by getting in one to that effect as [follows: Resolved, That the following amendment to the constitution cf the state of Iowa be, and the same is hereDV proposed, and referred to the legislature to be chosen at the next general election for members of the general assembly, namely: To ad I as section 28 of artize I of Slid conatiluiion the following: “section 26 The manufacture, or keeping with intent to seizor seliimr of any intoxicating liquors whatever, including ale, wine aud beer. for use as a beverage, are strictly prohibited In ttai* state.

TK* House Trylag ta Decide Wbaa to Adjoern Btu* Die—lh* banat*. Special to the Hawk-Eye. Des Moines, March 25 —The work of the two appropriation committees was nearing completion yesterday and the bills to help the state institutions were pretty well agreed upon. All the estimates were bases on the amount of in come to be derived from a two mill tax levy, and according to this the appria tions had to be trimmed way dowa, ic some instances much more than half. The senators were of the opinion tha the house would not recede in its portion on the two and one-half mill levy and so the members of that body made their estimates on what the houEe desired The house this morning spent the first half hour receiving petitions and memor ials A great many of them were for a change in the exemption laws, a very strange procedure, for there is no bill be fore e'ther house at present providing for such change Several petitions were presented in favor of a soldiers monu ment, and also a number askiag for re lief from oppressive school book laws and for establishment of joint rates Under committee reports quite a sum ber of bills were brought back to notice the greater part of them being recom mended or indefinitely postponed. Tne bills in'roduced in tne house thif morning ^ere mostly itgalizjig and amendatory. More important were the resolutions Chamberlain introduced a joint resolution calling for a reduction of the tariff on iron, salt, lumber and binding twine. Luke introduced a joint resolution asking for the appointment of a committee of four from the house and two from the senate to take steps toward having Iowa represented at the world’ ■ fair. This was adopted. A reso lution was also adopted limiting the time of each speech in debate to ten minutes The calendar WM taken up and a sum ber of bills disposed of. By Woods—To repeal chapter 139 of the acta of the twenty-second general assembly. That act appropriated money to reimburse a citizen of Webster county, named John Haidien, tor money sup posed to be lost by buying land from the state, which the state really had no rignt to sell, as the title thereto was in the Des Moines River Improvement company. Haidien, it appears, paid $160 far the land, and sold it to John Ostlund for $400. When OiUund found the title was no good, he sold it to another mon for SIGO tor the timber there wm on it. Haidien said he hod lost nothing on the transaction, and hence, would not accept the money. The bill repealing that ap propriation act piMed without opposition, and the state will be about $889 richer. By Johnston of Bremer—To define the qualifications of county superintendents of schools The bill received a majority of ail the votes cast, but m it did not get a constitutional majority it failed to POM.

From this report it would appear that the two mill levy would be sufficient but examination will show that it will not be elough; that is if proper proper provision is to be made for the state institutions the amount of income will not be sufficient. Only the ordinary expenditures ore provided for, and then the net surplus is but $666,000. Now the amount of extraordinary appropriation asked for the state ineiiiiuioiiua and other purposes is $1,323,802, but the members My this will have to be cut down folly one-half. That would    the    amount to be appropriated $661 401. This would be merely for state institution, and it is readily seen that this amount would not be enough, even with such wholesale cutting. Now the amount cf income from the extra half mill tax would be just $562,000, estimated on the same basis m the ways and means committee used and this would give a total net surplus to be used for extraordinary appropriations of $1,223,900. The state institutions could be well cared for nut of this amount and the taxpayers of the state would hardly feel tim additional amount paid.
