Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - April 4, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: Juki, 18*9.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL 4, 1890. [Price: IS Cents per Week. THE HOOSE PASSES THE SIU ADM1TTH8 HEB TO STATEHOOD. A Long-Winded Wrangle—The Democrat* Refrain from Toting and Will Make Thin a Te*t Qaoram-Couit-ing Case—The Senate. Washington, April 3 —In the home a petition from the New England Shoe and Leather association against the imposi tion of a duty upon hides and skins was ordered printed in the Record. The reading of the petition was received with applause from the democratic side. The senate bill passed to enable the secretary of tho treasury to gather full and authentic information as to the present condition and preservation of the fur seal interests of the government in the region of Alaska as compared with its condition in 1870. Also, full information as to the pending extinction of the sea otter industry. On motion of Hitt, of Illinois, from tho committee on foreign affairs, the senate concurrent resolution was agreed to requesting the president to invite from time to time, as fit occasion may arise, negotiations with any government with which the United States may have diplomatic relations to the end that any differences or disputes arising between governments whicn cannot be adjusted by diplomatic agency may be referred to arbitration. On Hitt’s motion a resolution was adopted calling on the president for copies of correspondence between the United states and Mexico relating to the seizure a* Tampico of the schooner Rebecca in 1884 Tfte bill was passed amending the article of war so as to provide that when punishment on conviction of a military offense is left with the court martial the punishment in time of peace shall not be in exceis of the limit prescribed by the president. Also, senate bill amending the articles of war so as to provide that no person shall be tried for punishment by court martial for the desertion in time of peace, committed more than two years before arraignment, unless the person shall in the meantime have absented himself from the United State Too house then resumed consideration of the Idaho admission bill. Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, concluded his aperch in advocacy of the measure. He criticised the position taken by the gentleman from Illinois (Springer) upon this question and contrasted it with the position taken by that gentleman at the time of the passage of tho E Imunds law when ho voted against the motion to strike out tho clause disfranchising the polygamists. Mr. Mansur, of Missouri, inquired why the gentleman had not voted to disfranchise the Mormons of Wyoming. Mr. Perkins replied that the question had not been presented to the committee. As far as be knew there were no polygamists in Wyoming, but if there were they could bo disfranchised uuder the K imunds act. Mr. Stewart, of Vermont, spoke in support of the bill and denounced the practices and teachings of the Mormon church. The constitution of Idaho was in tho line of the Edmunds bill and was for the same purpose, namely the extirpation of a great public evil. Mr. Joseph, of New Mexico, presented the claims of his territory for admission into the sisterhood of the states Messrs. Buckalew, of Pennsylvania, and Oates, of Alabama, thought the Idaho constitution invalid. Mr. Springer, of Illinois, said that the majority of the committee on territories had seen fit to frame the Idaho bill in such a way as to secure partisan legislation instead of proper legislation to bring the state into the union. The minority would offer an amendment providing that a new convention be held and that the constitution be submitted to a vDte of the people of the territory as had been done in the case of Dakota, Montana and Washington. The amendment required tho Edmunds-Tucker test oath to be taken by every person voting upon the constitution. The gentlemen on the other side said the provision of the Idaho constitution disfranchising the Mormons was in lino with the Edmunds-Tucker law. There was a vast difference Under that law not ten per cent of the Mormons cf Utah were disfranchised. Under the Idaho constitution not a member of the Mormon church would be allowed to vote. He charged the republicans with the purpose of admitting territories under such provisions as would ensure an increase cf their representation in the senate. The minority of the committee represented the people of the United States. It represented five million, five hundred thousand democrats who voted for Cleveland. It represented a majority of the people, because Cleveland received the popular majority, and it seemed from the returns from various municipal elections, the democratic party was not losing ground. When November, 1892 came along the democratic party would elect a president who would represent the majority of the people, instead of a man who represented the trusts and monopo lies. Mr. Lodge supported the bill. Mr. Henderson, of Iowa, said the attitude of the democratic party was a fa miliar sight to the country The demo cratic party was in its old breeches, pull log back, back, when the civilized world cried, "Forward and onward." The democratic party was a polygamist. It /had a batch of wives: slavery was one? slave territory another, treason another [derisive laughter on the democratic side]. Mr. Henderson—You recognize them; iou know their names; and now you ave polygamy for one of your wives; corrupt ballot boxes was one of your wives, and you have been true to every one of them. [Laughter]. I like your loyalty to them; but do not sneak behind the constitutional shields to oover up your purpose. The people know what you are. Stick to your women/.boys ; we will help Idaho stick to the principles she has advance [Laugh ter and applause.] After farther debate a vote was taken on the amendment of the minority pro viding for a new constitutional conven tion resulting yeas 111, nays 125 The next amendment providing for a vote upon the present constitution was rejected, 104 to 121. The vote recuring on the passtge of the bill the democrats refrained from voting, and their names were noted down as present and refusing to vote. The democrats say they intend to make this a test case and have the courts pats upon the constitutionality of the rules allowing the speaker to count as a quorum. It had been intended to make one of the contested election cases a teat cue, bat u this could be done only by snit for salary brought in the court claims this course was abandoned the present action decided upon. bill was passed: Yeas, 129; nays I (Mr Buckalew), the speaker counting a quorum. Adjourned. of being Good Friday, th* adjournment of the senate to-day shall be till Saturday. Blair, at his own request, was excused from further service on the committee on public lands and Pettigrew was appointed in his place. Mr. Blair introduced a bill to regulate the per diem of laborers employed by the government (fixing the lowest wages at 32 per day) and had it referred to the committee on education and labor. The vice president announced that he expected to be absent from Washington several days until next week. Mr. Cullom offered a resolution, which was agreed to, declaring Ingalls elected president pro tem Ingalls then entered upon the duties of presiding officer. The Montana election case was taken up as unfinished.business, and Gray resumed his argument in support of the claim of the two democratic claimants. The burden of Gray’s argument was against the throwing out of the 174 votes cast in precinct thirty-four of Silver Bow county. To vote for the resolution of the majority would be, he said, to violate all the most sacred traditions of American history and American liberty. He protested against putting the odious mark of the bar sinister on the state of Montana thus early in her career. The matter then went over until to-morrow. The senate bill appropriating 975,000 for a public building at Aurora, Illinois, was passed. The house bill to amend the census law by providing for the enumeration of the Chinese population was read with the senate amendments. Mr. Hall spoke of the demand from the Pacific coast and said the senate committee’s amendments were all in the direction of making the bill leas severe. He feared the committee had gone too far in that direction. Mr. Eustis objected to the bill as providing penal statutes with reference to people residing here by reason of treaty rights. It gave a just cause for complaint to the foreign government If the Chinese exclusion question is to be reopened it should be in the proper way. The matter went over until Monday and after an executive session the senate adjourned CL A BK ZON* Aft OPINION. lh* Postmaster Gamer a1’* Views oat th# Liquor Question la Iowa. Washington, April 3.—In an interview to day regarding the anti-prohibition movement in Iowa, First Assistant Postmaster General Clarkson said it is impossible for any one outside of Iowa.to understand the feeling there unless they know nil the facts. The prohibition law has had seven years’ trial and while it has proved an admirable law for the agricultural counties and smaller towns, it has failed to find sufficient public opinion to enforce it in the larger cities end in the counties on the Mississippi river, which are largely settled by people of European birth. It is an open fact it cannot be forced in such localities without a state constabulary which the temper of the Iowa people would never permit. The republican party have never been united in support of the measure. As many as fifty or sixty thousand republicans opposed it but have gone along with the party willing to see the experiment. Now that it has been tried seven years and failed in part, they insist the law should be amended to give prohibition to the eighty per cent of Iowa where public opinion favors and enforces it, but that some other method of regulating and repressing the traffic be given to the twenty per cent of the state where experience shows it never can be enforced. The demand of yesterday’s convention for a silent platform will not be successful; it is not the temper of the Iowa people to be silent on any question. The present legislature should, in my judgment, modify the law as demanded by the experience of actual trial. The suggestion for another vote on the question of a constitutional amendment does not meet the question. Seven years of experience should be followed by action. Besides, I do not believe it right to vote anything of an experimental character into the constitution. The anti prohibition republicans consented to the trial of prohibition for seven years. The prohibitionists should now be willing to see the communities who have shown themselves anti prohibition, try some other method. All good people wish to reach such legislation as will be nearest right and the most repressive of the liquor traffic; and, if possible, the destruction of it. But common sense must regulate in this as in all other affairs the affairs of men. Iowa is face to face with this question now and will meet it with con scienciousne8s and wisdom. CHARGESJ/BMRY.

When an adjournment was moved Smith, of Mitchell, introduced a resolution asking the appoint ment of a committee of four to investi gate the charges and report not later than Monday. He said two members had told him they had been offered money for their votes, and on that ground he offered the resolution. Mr. Dobson said that an investigation would cost more than it was worth, but he would vote for it if the majority thought it would do any good. The resolution went through by an overwhelming majority. Some of the members voted against it, but when they saw the turn affairs were taking they made haste to change their votes. The scene in the house during the taking of the vote was very animated. The members left their seats and gathered in groups to try to find out who were the men who had been approached, but none seemed willing to make admissions. After adjournment one member said he knew of one case where a state uniformity man had been offered 9150 for his vote; and another had been approached, though not so definitely. Another member said that he knew one man who claimed to have been offered a share in the Iowa School Book company in case state uniformity succeeded. He was prepared to give the names if the committee should desire them. From this it is evident that attempts have been made on both sides to unduly influence legislation on the subject of text books, and either some members desire to work up a great reputation for honesty or else the school book lobby has been very active among them and the two sides are making good bids for votes. It has been noticeable that well known member lobbyists have been more active and watchful here lately since the question of school books came up than before in the session. The investigation will attract considerable at-tentidn to the methods pursued this year and the whole matter will be well brought to light. It is more than likely that Dobson and Smith, of Mitchell, will be two members of the committee, as they seem to have some knowledge that will come in very handy. UNIFORMIXY BILL DEFEATED. A BMJ Sealion of the Hone-The Benote. Bpeoial to Tbs Hawk-Eye. Dis Moines, April 3.-—The house this morning began work early, though a great share of the members had been out late the night before in attendance upon the anti-prohibition republican cor ven-tion. There was plenty of work to do, for the calendar is still full of bills and plenty more are to be brought over from the senate- The Johnson county legalizing acts had to be recalled and amend od first and this took a short time. The bill passed yesterday in regard to the number of members of boards of super visors in counties where there are cities of 25,000 inhabitants or over was recon sidered and amended so as to apply only to Dubuque and thus passed again School books were the regular order for 9:30, but that order did not come up till shortly after that time. By unanimous consent Mr. Hendershott’s mining MU was made a special order for Sawraay at IO a. rn. Mr. Briggs called up the bill amending the law in relation to caring for pupils of the institution for the deaf and dumb, fixing matters so that the authorities may collect money for transportation of the pupils to and from the institution as well as pay for their clothing if the parents are able to pay the same. The bill had very little opposition and passed. Mr. Holbrook rose to a question of privilege in regard to a statement made by Dobson yesterday that there had been a lobby present all winter working for state uniformity, and had offered the members supporting that policy a finger in the pie if successful. He moved that a committee be appointed to investigate the matter of bribery and report to the house. Dob son said he had the statement from a member of the body that such was the condition of things and also on the floor yesterday one member had stated plainly he had been offered money to influence his vote. Mr. Walden said the members had been freely hurling epithets at each other in this discussion and in such free talk they had probably used stronger lan guage than they otherwise would, so he moved to table the matter. The motion He analyzsd the uniformity bill and brought out clearly the advantages to be gained by that system as opposed to district purchase. The other speakers were Russell and Holbrook, the former favoring the majority and the latter the min* ority bill. At the conclusion of Holbrook’s speech a vote was taken, the question being whether the minority bill favoring state uniformity should be substituted for the majority bill favoring district purchase. The vote was close, and the interest with which it was watched was intense All through it was tied several times, but it finally came out with a majority of six against state uniformity and a clear majority of four of the whole house in favor of the majority bill. This means that district purchase and perhaps free text books will be the measure adopted. It may be of interest to know how the members stood rn the question, and for this reason the roll call is appended as follows: Yeas-Addle, Arnold, Austin, Ball, Beem, Briggs, Brown, Byers, Cantry, Chase, Cutting, Davie, Dayton.

This is a very decided victory for the opponents cf state uniformity. The contest all along has been very close and now it is pretty well decided. It is understood the senate is much of the same opinion as the house. The whole afternoon was taken up With amending the text-book bill reported by the majority of the committee. The friends of the state uniformity bill defeated this morning are trying to make other measures to embody some of their ideas. THE SENATE. The senate this morning postponed a further consideration of the state board of control bill and took tip the matter of the state tax levy. According to the amounts of appropriations recommended by the committees it was evident that the levy would have to be two and one-half mills. There were some of the senators who were very much opposed to anything like that basis and they labored strenuously for a two mill levy. They contended that the extra half mill had been put on to build the state capitol and pay the state debt, and now that the purpose was accomplished it was unnecessary to keep up the tax. The state institutions could get along well enough on reduced appropriations and there was no use of burdening the people with any more increased taxation. In defense of the extra mill it was said that the increased population of the state and the necessary enlargement and progress of her institutions made it necessary to keep up the taxes to pay for running them. Moreover, it was said that during the time in which the cap! tol was being built and the stat1! debt disposed of, the state institutions did not get their proper support and therefore should get their full share of it now. The resolution as proposed provided for two and one-half mills for both years, and a substitute was proposed to make it two mills for both years. Then an amendment was proposed to make it two and one half mills for one year and two mills for the other. This was rejected by a vote of thirteen to twenty-seven. Taylor’e substitute asking for two mills was rejected by a vote of 17 to thirty, and the original resolution was adopted by the following vote: Yeas—Bailey, Barrett, Bay less, Frower, Caldwell, Cleveland, Funk, Gateh. Gobble, Burchett, Kelly, Lawrence. Mattoon, McCoy, McVey, Meservey, Mosnat, Parrott, Perkins, Rich, Schmidt. 8eeds, Shields, Smith, of Linn, Smith, of Wright. Wolfe, Wbolson.—27. Nays—Ballingall, Barnett, Bills, Bolter, Clyde, Davidson, Dodge, Duncan, Engle, Finn, Groneweg, Harsh, Kegler. Kent, Mack, Mills, Price Reinlger, Stewart, Taylor, Vale —21. Absent or not voting— Cossatt and Weidman. /ii is very likely that the house will make quite a struggle against this as it has already decided for two mills and will work for it as hard as at last session, but the money is needed to carry on the affairs of state properly and it is altogether certain the senate will stand by its action.

Her presence of mind and prompt action doubtless prevented a serious conflagration. TRADED CATTLE FOB VIRTU*. A LaaAlag Ckirik Mimbir, a Cob Agla* Girl aa* aa AMoaaidailag TMM Party. Ft. Dodge, April 3.—Yell township comes to the front with a sensation of vast proportions. A man named Curtis is a class leader in a church there, and one of his pupils was a young lady named McGuire. Curtis and Mitt McGuire got on very intimate terms, and their intimacy soon resulted in Miss McGuire’s disgrace. She went to Curtis and demanded satisfaction of him, but Curtis was unfortunate in being married, and had to look to some one else to take the girl, and so he traded some live stock to a man named Baker, who took out a license in consideration thereof, and married the girl, she consenting to this.

FOR RELIGIOUS POLITICS IZ3 The conference of the organization formed for the purpose of bringing religion into the settlement of political and state affairs, to-day adopted a platform declaring in favor of employing teachings of the Bible in the settlement of public sffairs and the insertion of the name of the Supreme Bring in the constitution. The platform also approves of the Blair Sunday Beet bill, and all measures against gambling, pool selling and the liquor traffic. The committee reported that a call had been made upon the president, who received them kindly. The president, they reported, said for good reasons he did not wish to be compelled to make response to their address setting forth the objects of the association, and added that its objects were sd compli cated he would require time for their consideration. THE TARIFF ON TOBACCO. The cigar manufacturers who made argument yesterday in opposition to the tobacco schedules of the new tariff bill, to-day flied with the committee a sub stitute schedule which will be acceptable to them. It is intended to correct the provision of the bill which subjects to duty as wrappers at 92.75 pm pound* the entire contents of any bale of leaf tobacco containing any leaf suitable for wrappers. WASHINGTON GOSSIP A number of well known ladies, in eluding the wives of Senators Jones. McMillan, Payne and Hasnt, Mrs. Whitelaw Reid, Mrs. Florence Bayard and Mn. Frank Hatton, mot Yesterday at the Mr. Wyman said no good would re suit from the resolution, as it was at present and he wanted it to be amended so that it woald fix a definite time for the report of the committee. Mr. McFarland desired the resolution to be amended to investigate the matter on both sides. Holbrook said he was willing, for he thought there was more occasion for the investigation on the side against state uniformity. Wyman moved that the committee report not later than Monday, April 7th, and it was adopted. Holbrook moved to amend by empower ing the committee to investigate any phase of the school book question, with special reference to attempted bribery. Holbrook began the wark of revising the resolution and getting it into proper form, and then a few bills were intro duced by unanimous consent They were: By Roe: To prohibit location of cemeteries within corporate limits. By Hipwell—To appropriate 94,000 to reimburse John L. Brown, ex-auditor of state. The special order was continued for a short time and Holbrook’s amendment was read. Hotchkiss was opposed to the whole matter becense it was unnecessary Hasty changes had been made on both sides end the house had no time to fool with the melter. He therefore moved to indefinitely postpone the melter. Mr. Luke was of the opinion this the best method to dispose of the matter as the house had enough to do without that. The motion to indefinitely postpone was carried. Holbrook then called for the special Sensational Story of rn Young Girl’* Marring! to a Gorman Nobleman Cedar Falls, lo., April 3 —Pretty Gertrude Gallagher, of this place, and Count Gustav Foersterling, of Sioux City, were married at the home of the former March 27. A sensational story lies behind the commonplace matrimo nial event. Foersterling who came to this country four years ago, is the son of a German nobleman. He was a lieutenant in the German army, and bore the title of count. He has made money in Sioux City real estate and is quite wealthy. Miss Gallagher visited her married sister in Sioux City last fall, where she met the count. He fell in love with her and followed her home His visits were frequent, and while he made small head way with the young lady, he captivated her parents. They forbid the house, it is said, to Samuel Carpenter, who had been courting Gertrude for years. She remained true to him and refused to accept the German as her husband. Several times the young people attempted to elope Once, it is said, she was caught by her father just as she was leaving the house at night to join her lover. A guard was set for a month over her, and, finally despairing of a union with Carpenter, she agreed to marry Foersterling, assuring Carpenter she would remain true to him and some day be his wife. After the marriage, at which only the family was present, the couple went directly to the depot and took a train for Sioux City.__ CONCLUDES HE IS FORTUNATE. So Ar- A Ft.

A few days ago Graham’s young and pretty wife disappeared from her home in this city. About the same time Henry De Long also turned up missing, and the bereaved husband was not long in reaching the conclusion that they had gone together. Graham’s ire J*8 roused, and he put the authorities on the track of the fleeing couple. They were traced to Sioux City, and were about to be arrested, when Graham decided that his wife was not worth reclaiming, sad notified the Sioux City sheriff that he would not prosecute.

Farmington, Mo., April 3—The women’s crusade, which swept like a prairie fire in autumn over the entire western part of Missouri a few weeks ago, has broken out again with renewed vigor. Yesterday morning a determined band of women from all classes of society started on a lid uor-wrecking expedition with very successful results. The women had heard that a wagon load of beer was en route to town and carefully laid their plans. About nine o’clock Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Foster, two leading matrons, marshaled a force of mors than two score determined women aimed with axes, hatchets and weapons suitable for smashing in heads—either of beer barrels or of individuals who did not agree with them. In the ranks were staid matrons, young mothers, such well known society belles ac Julie Sander, Frankie Slossonand Edna Summers, who willingly followed their mothers’ lead ae young crusaders. As the women fell into line their faceB flushed with indignation, and unmindful of the astonished looks of the male bystanders, whose remarks were anything but complimen tary, they marched along four abreast, kerping step with the precision of soldiers and singing temperance hymns. Taming down the road to Delassus they waylaid a wagonload of beer about half a mile from this place. August Thompson, the driver of the wagon, was told to dismount. He hesitated and at tempted to whip up his horses, but the women were too quick for him. and a dozen held his horses’ heads and pulled back on the wagon wheels while Mrs. Foster asked him if he would come down peacefully or if they should come up after him. He came down. Then at the request of Julie Bander the terror stricken driver assisted in unloading six barrels, fourteen half barrels and sixteen eighth barrels of rich export beer, which was originally intended for the palates of the male citizens of Farmington. Then the axes and hatchets began to play on the heads of the beer barrels The women pounded the bungs out of all the casks and let the beer run by the wayside.
