Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - March 28, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1839.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 28. 1890 [Puce: 15 Cents pbx Week. HE BILL ADMETUS TEAT TERRITORY AB A STATE PASSES THE HOUSE. Democratic Arguments Against the Proposed Slate —The Anti-Trust Bill Referred—Bills In the Senate—.Pacific Railroad Bills* Washington, March 27.—The house met at eleven o’clock to-day in continuation of yesterday’s session, and tip Wyoming admission bill was taken up for consideration. Outhwaite, of Ohio, opposed the bill, basing his opposition upon the insufficiency of population in the proposed state Buckalew, of Pennsylvania, also antagonized the measure, declaring it was a bribe held out to congress by the local office-seeking element in the territory. It was intended to back the United States senate, the senate already having eight new seats, six fairly held and two stolen. McAdoo, of New Jersy, said the constitution of Wyoming had almost everything in it that was bad in politics, morals and economics. It held out to European syndicates the advertisement that Wyoming was the mecca to which they should hasten their steps in order to gobble up the public lands. Mr. Springer, of Illinois, said in the last congress he had favored the admission of four new states at this session. He had introduced the omnibus bill because he thought that all the territories should be treated fairly and equally. The Wyoming bill gave the women the right of suffrage. The Idaho bill deprives Mormon men and women of the right to vote. The reason for this is that in Wyoming the Mormons vote the republican ticket, while in Idaho it is amp acted they hold the democratic ticket. M monism is no obj action to the admission of a state, except when the people having that belief wer a bus pccted of having a desire to vote the democratic ticket He believed that if the Mormons of Utah would vote with the re publeans the gentlemen on the other side would railroad a bill through the house for the admission of that territory to the states. At one o’clock the previous question was ordered. Mr. Sprit ger offered three amendments which were all efeated: Provided for another convention, called under the act of congress; providing that there shall be an election in Wyoming on the first Monday in November next for representatives in congress and for state and judicial officers, and if the vote is against female suffrage that feature shall be omitted from the constitution; aid one striking out the clause of the constitution providing for female suffrage. Mr Breckenridge, of Kentucky moved to recommit the bill; lost. A vote was then taken on the bill, resulting in its passage, yeas 139, nays 127. This was a strict party voto except that Dunned, of Minnesota, voted with the democrats. Mr Bauer, of New York, moved to reconsider and moved to lay that motion on the table The motion to reconsider was tabled by a party vote. The house then went into committee of the whole on the army appropriation bill. The bill was read at length and without action the committee rose and the house adj turned THIS SKNATX. Sippi river between the mouth of the Illinois and the mouth of the Missouri rivers; the senate bill to amend the act constituting Lincoln, Nebraska, a port of delivery; house bill retiring Tremont as major general; senate biff suspending for one year the statutes requiring steamers to be provided with certain life-saving appliances, guns for throwing line, etc. TO AHIND THS CENSUS ACT. The house bill to amend the census act of March 3, 1889, was passed in the sen ate to-day. The amendment allows special agents IS per day for subsistence when traveling. THE PRESIDENT’S RECEPTION. Washington, March 27 —The president gave a special reception this afternoon to delegates to tip convention of the American Assedation for the education of the colored youths now in sea aion. In response to an introductory address by Profeisor Gregory the president said, in part: “I have a firm belief that the rock of our safety as a nation lies in the proper education of its population; that it is impossible for a man to discharge his duties as a citizen without the knowledge derived from common schools.” RECIPROCITY WITH ARGENTINE REPUBLIC. It has transpired that in the debate on the report of the commission on a customs union, the United States delegates, upon authority of Secretary Blaine, offered a bill for reciprocity with Argentine Republic, Dr. Saenz Pena, the dele gate from that country, having advocated free trade in the minority report and in a speech in support of it. No offer of reciprocity was made to any other South American republics as was reported. IN OPPOSITION OP THE SILVER BILL. Mr. Bland, of Missouri, and Mr. Williams, of Illinois, from the committee on coinage, submitted to the house a minority report in opposition to the Windom silver bill. The report says the bill is “very adroitly drawn to suspend silver coinage, totally demetize silver and permanently establish single standard of gold payments, but all the same it does these things effectually, though cunningly.” THE TARIFF. The ways and means committee has restored the old duty on whiting and Paris white. The committee practically agreed to place works of art on the free list. _ MARYLAND’S FUNDS SHORT. FULL TEI! Of THE DEIOCBATO LII BILL Its Consideration by the House Yesterday—The Work of the Senate-A Lynching: Bee Proposed—General State News. as State Treasurer Archer’* Account* Met la a Satisfactory Condition. Annapolis, Md., March 27.—No one here seems to know just the extent of State Treasurer Archer’s difficulties. Intimate friends of Archer’s have known of his trouble since Monday and any amount to make good his shortage was tendered. He rejected all offers of aid, saying that he himself could settle the affair. The theory is advanced to day that in a moment of temptation he pledged securities belonging to the state, but not to a large amount, and that dread of exposure drove him insane. SHERIFF FLACK RESIGNS. Ho A Morse His Innocence, end Expects n Vindication in the Coart*. Albany, N. Y , March 27 —Governor Hill has received the resignation of Sheriff Flack, of New York city. Mr. Flack protests that he has committed no crime, but admits that a person under conviction of a criminal offense, no mat tor how innocent he may be, ought not to continue to hold public office. He believes that he will be vindicated in the courts, and that his fellow citizens will find that whatever mistakes he may have made he has been guilty of no crime The governor will appoint a successor to Sheriff Flack. HAlLttOAB Ma A-a. ERS. A Plan of Rooriaifiitlsa of th* Passenger association. Chicago, March 27—A committee of the Western States’ Passenger Assedation was appointed yesterday to formulate a plan for its reorganization met today, but after a somewhat protracted session an adjournment was taken until to-morrow, without having reached an agreement. DU RED FRUM HOME. Mysterious Disappearance of Wealthy Yon* g Ens lls* men Toronto, March 27.—Detective Murray has received letters from a firm of civil engineers in New York city telling cf the mysterious disappearance of Augustus Rawlins and Franklin Regdbie, sons of English gentlemen who were lured to Canada under misapprehension that they were to be placed out with farmers as farm pupils. Neither have been seen since then. Th* Anti-Trust Bill Severely Attacked --Bills Reported Washington, March 27.—The antitrust bill was taken up in the senate after some preliminary business. When the amendment excepting from the pro hibitions of the law combinations of workmen and farmers came up, Edmunds spoke at some length. He favored going as far as the constitution permitted in suppressing and breaking up trusts and monopolies. The people could not shut their eyes to the fact if capital combined —if the'great industrial establishments combined—to regulate wages, workmen also combined to defend themselves. And so this country and other countries for the last forty years had been turned into great camps of oppositions, where there ought to be only one camp of co-opera'ive friends. Even in Washington where congress has exclusive jurisdiction all the trades had combinations which were armed camps, making aggressive warfare against the rest of mankind Edmunds cited as an incident the case of the skilled printer who wanted employment in the public printing office, but could not be hired because he did not belong to a particular combination and the public printer was threatened with a strike if the man was employed. If this sort of thing is not tyranny E Munds did not know what tyranny was. Edmunds went on to argue that if labor combinations put up wages of fifty per cent, tho people who owned mines and furnaces, etc, had a right to combine to protect themselves so as to get such prices as would make up for the increased cost of production. He believed it better to endure the partial evil of even grinding monopolies than to attempt to step over the clear boundary line established and maintained between congress and the legislative powere of the states. Mr. Platt also attacked the bill. A motion by Walthall to refer the bill and its amendments to the judiciary committee to report back in twenty days, was then agreed to. The senate bill granting pensions to ex soldiers and sailors incapacitated for manual labor and to dependent relatives of deceased soldiers and sailors, was taken up and Plumb argued in support of his amendment, made at the same time, I Change of life, backache, monthly lr-extending pro.ieions to all who eerved reguleritiee, hot Awhet, ere cured by Dr three months or more, etc , to be graded!

He has not been seen by his friends since last Sunday and they are at a loss to account for his mysterious absence. The bank officials say there is a discrepancy in his accounts, but cannot at present give the amount. As far as known his other accounts are all straight. Golem Drool’s Es la to.

Ricnman said the democratic side had no objection to allowing the republican members to inform themselves on the subject. He therefore desired that the consideration of the matter be deferred for a week. On motion of Lake the committee rose and reported progress and desired leave to sit again. Holbrook moved that leave be granted, and it waB granted. The time for sitting was left to be fixed at the afternoon set a ion. Chase’s bill to compel railroad compa pies to fix up their cars with automatic brakes and couplers, was the subject of considerable discussion as the next order of business. The companies made very clear statements in regard to the time in which they could get their cals in shape, and in accordance with their statements, as well supported by letters from manu facturers, the bill was amended. By the 1st of January, 1895, all cars belonging to roads operating in Iowa and used in this state will have to be thus equipped It will be possible to have the brakes fixed by that time, but as to the couplers there is considerable doubt as to the ability of the companies to get the cars all (quipped as desired. The railroad men say there is not yet a practical coupler invented, and they will not put on a coupler that will not fill the bill. Holbrook presented a report of the committee on text books, recommending that a substitute for all the text book bills bs adopted aud passed. The substitute was ordered printed. A mine r ty report and bill was presented, the bill being Dayton’s bill with amendments. The time for the consideration was set for next Tuesday at two o’dock p. rn. The senate bill to confer upon titles organized under special charters, power to fix the salaries of their mayors, was taken up and passed just before time for the special order. After this had been disposed of the house went into the committee of the whole to consider the Dent license bill, Mr. Holbrook presiding. The bill was read through, tee reading taking about heir sn hour. After the bill had been read Rickman offered an amendment striking out all after the enacting clause and inserting the democratic canons bill instead. Mr. Beam moved the adoption of the amendment Mr. Dobson said the bill should be ss nearly perfect as its friends could make A FEM EXPLOSION. CHHUM SUHAR HETHER! WRECK! UBL!

Twenty-seven men were at work in the starch room when, without warning, t ame a tremendous report followed by flashes of fire and rumbling of falling timber. The shattered portions of the buildings and machinery were hurled in all directions and the workmen were buried beneath the mass of debris which took fire. Two hundred men employed in the main buildiig were panicstricken and rushed into the street as rapidly as possible. The cries of their imprisoned fellow-!aborers brought them to their senses and, with the aid of eighteen fire-engine crews, the fire was subdued and in a short time the bruised and bleeding victims were being cared for in the company’s labratory All sorts of wild rumors flew about the city, and for a time it was understood that the main building had been wrecked and scores killed. Thousands of people hastened to the scene, amo ag them, the wives, mothers and children of tne employes. The3e latter fought their way through the mart of ip senators and clamored for admission to the labratory. Louis Noltshorst was the victim whose injuries were fatal. General Manager Behr and Foreman Haboldt were fear full burned about the fsce and hands. Other men while painfully burned and bruised are not thought to be in danger cf death. The pecuniary loss by the explosion is about 910,000. of them through the capillary nerves? The same people say that they do not | feel this peculiar sensation while riding in cars drawn by honer Here the'matter becomes mvoived—paradoxical. Are these unseen influexfbss, acting in the all-pervading ether, which make healing impressions on the body through the mind? If we admit this, we mutt also admit that other things which we regard as humbugs have a basis of reality. However, rheumatism is an affliction that ought to have a cheap and popular remedy, for the reason that so many are afflicted by it. If the electric can will fill the bill, then the sooner their use becomes universal the better it will be for the afflicted, and if they will cure rheumatism, why not toothache, earache, neuralgia, headache, and all other aches. If all this can be realised from the electric cars they cannot begin climbing ever our hills any too soon and when that day comes our rheumatic sufferers who heretofore have painfully and slowly climbed Division street or Jefferson and Valley or Washington and Fourth streets will glide swiftly and easily to the top and take an electric treatment on the way all for the small sum of five cents. Truly this is a I progessive age.

Madison’s prominent and most handsome young ladies was the recipient of a surprising and somewhat mystifying, not to say distressing shock last night. A prominent one of her many beautiful features, and of which she and her many friends are j astly proud, are her luxur ent golden tresses Returning from a call late last evening with friends, she and her eacort had occasion to pass through the busy streets of the city. The pave ments were crowded with pedestrians and at one point it was necessary for them to elbow their way through the throng. When in the thickest of the jam Miss —, felt a slight tug at her hair. She paid little attention to it at the time but at home later she discovered to her horror that a strand of hair a1 most two inches thick had been cut from her head close to the scalp. She was much distressed at the discovery and is deeply mystified as to the manner and object of the audacious deed. It is doubtless the work cf one of a gang of hair thieves who are report- d ss practicing their brutal trade throughout the country. BOTH LEGS CUA OFF. Horrible Aecl*snt to a Ft. Madison Mer cheat. Special to Ths Hawk-Eyi, Ft Madison, March 27 —Mr. J. W. Bin low, brother of Mrs William Bill, of Burlington, was run over by the 9:10 passenger train on the Santa Fe this morning. Both legs were cut off by the wheels, one above, the other below the knee. Mr. Benlow was a prominent grain dealer and had started from his ware house to the Sin ta Fe freight office with a car billing. la crossing the tracks a switch engine came close upon him, and in endeavoring to avoid this, he stepped upon the main track, where the passenger train caught him. Amputa lion of both limbs was necessary, but he stood the shock better than was anticipated and is still living. GENERAL FOREIGN NX WB. More Fro* cb la Fish till by tb* A f rice.

The General Bernard, U. 8. government steamer is on her way south on a snagging trip. The steamer War Eagle is still on the ways at Carondelet and has been generally overhauled during the winter. She Bas been cut down and adapted to low water, and will leave St. Louis on her first trip April 15. The twin steamers, Sam and J. C. Atlee, passed this port yesterday afternoon lashed together in most loving embrace. They did not land. They are the first boats, except local ones, to plow the waves at this point Idlers on the bvee watched the progress of the two boats with great interest. Many thought an exciting race was in progress as the bow of one and then the other would be seen in front and bets were about to be made when it was discovered they were lashed together. The good steamer Burlington, Capt. Peel in comamnd, will open the Oquawka season to day, making the first trip this morning and another this afternoon Hereafter trips to Oquawka will be made regularly every Friday as last year. Our merchants will soon begin to feel the effects cf these Oquawka trips, as the Oquawka people are good buyers and know where to come for good goods. The Wednesday exeursions to Dellas will be resumed a little later in the season upon the approach of warmer weather. C ptain Peel has recovered in great measure from his late attack of sickness. He sure to make himself a favorite with our up river neighbors and they will be glad to sail under his command. McDonald Brothers are making arrangements for a big season’s work. The purchase of f jut boats during the past winter gives them the largest ll.et of rafters on the Mississippi river. The boats composing the fleet are as follows: Thistle, Belle Mac, Iverness, Scotia, Mountain Bill©, Helen Mar, Kit Carson, Louisville, and Bart Linehan The tug Carrie will be used in Black river. The St Paul is being fisted up in elegant style, with a view to the comfort of passengers who make long trips on the upper river. She will be ready for service in a few days, and will be one week behind the Gem City in commencing her trips. As previously announced, Captain Ben Conger will command the Gem City and Captain William Burke the St. Paul. The leg cut is phenomenally large this season. Many firms report their cuts all the way from ten to thirty-three and one-third per cent in excess of their original calculations. It is probable that the cut together with logs held over will give the boom company 500 000,000 feet cf logs to handle this year. There have been seasons when log driving had fairly been commenced by April l&t, but such will hardly be the case this year. The loggers are still at w rk and doing good woik, although a go id many of them are coming out of the woods simply because they have backed all the logs they want or have contracted to get The season has been a long one and logs have been put on the landings probably as cheaply they ever were banked. The sun is getting high enough to warrant the belief that when the vast quantities of snow in the woods disappear, that there will be a good stage of water for driving purposes in the streams. The People’s Ferry company, of Quincy, says the Harold of that city, ha* decided to transform the land surrounding their Missouri wharf into a beautiful pleasure retort. The land, upon which nature has done much toward making it a pleasant summer and picnic resort, lies high shove the river and the fresh, cool river breezes, constantly blowing, will be sought and enjoyed by many during the coming summer. They will also lay out a base ball park for the benefit of their patrons The picnic grounds will be supplied with settees, swings, etc., sud those of Quincy’s citizens who desire to go out for a half day’s recreation will then have a suitable place to visit Work upon the improvements will begin in the very near future.
