Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - April 10, 1890, Burlington, Iowa f rm * I.THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: Juke, 1819.]BURLINGTON, IOWA. THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL IO, 1890. [Prick: IS Cents pkr Wkkx A LD ill) SPEECH FROM SEDAM IDHP1E OD THE SUBJECT. The Chinese Exclusion Bill - The Naval Appropriation Bill in the House— Representative Randall’s Condition —Washington News. Washington, April 9.—Among the billa reported from the committees and placed on the calendar were the following: House bill for public building at Galesburg, Illinois; senate bill to tmsnd the third section of the interstate commerce act. Mr. Wilson, of Iowa, offered a resolu tlon (which was agreed to) instructing the committee of the interstate commerce to inquire what additional legislation was necessary in respect to commutation and excursion tickets to prevent the abuses now existing in regard to individuals and locations. The house bill appropriating 175,000 to supply the deficiency occasioned by the Kilcott defalcation was passed. The senate then resumed consideration of the Montana case and Pugh concluded his argument in favor of the democratic claimants. Mr. Turpie presented an argument on the same side of the question. The canvassing board at Helena had no right to throw out the abstract of returns at precinct thirty four. They had not dared to throw out the abstract for the whole country because that would have defeated the republican candidates for congress. Turpin characterized the rejection of the votes of precinct thirty-four as an act of “strangling” on the part of “three thugs of the returning board.” Further on he spoke of the canvassing board as “a triple coil of adders,” composed of “a chief justice from Veralam, a secretary from Sodom, and a governor from Gomorrah,” and he wound up with a scathing denunciation of all concerned. In the course of the discussion as to the time for a vote it was stated by Morgan that the democratic senators were ready to vote upon the question without further delay. The offer was acceptee on the republican side but the arrange ment was defeated by Call taking the thor and stating his desire to address the senate on the subject to-morrow. The Montana election case having been laid aside, Hale asked unanimous consent to have the Chinese census enumeration bill taken up and disposed of. but Evarts objected, and then Hale ras.de a formal motion to that effect The motion met with resistance on the republican side, but all the democrats sided with Hale and the vote resulted, yeas 89, nays IO, and the bill was taken up. Mr. Hale said he did not desire to take up time with the bill and was willing to proceed with the vote on the pending amendments and on the bill. Mr. Evarts (-aid he regarded the amendments reported by the census committee as an improvement on the house bill and Was willing they should be adopted; but as to the merits of the bill itself, it was hts design and his duty to debate it, and at some length. Mr. Mitchell explained the purpose of nome amendments which he offered. He did not like the bill very well as it came from tho house, but as amended by the senate committee it was, he said, absolutely worthless and insufficient. He desired to have the pending bul amended to require the Chinese to show that they were residents on the first of October, 1888 (the date of the 8cott exclusion law) instead of (as the senate amendment proposer1) on the first of June, 1890. He asked Kale whether he was willing to give a certificate that should be good "as a ticket of leave” or ticket of stay to those Chicne8e who came into the ooun try unlawfully since October 1888 Mr. Hale admitted he was willing to give amnesty to five hundred or five thousand Chinese persons who came since October, 1888, for the sake of closing the doors in the future. After further debate the senate ad j corned without action. THIS MOUSSE. free trade if there is anything in their j professions we confidently look to them to defeat this most pernicious measure. This bill stripped of all its disguise, resolves itself into this condition:    The western hog against th* •anthem negro. Which will win? There are over two hundred oil mills, mostly in the south; they employ nearly seventy five thousand persons, more than three fourths of whom are colored men. At least three persona rely upon each of tfce*e seventy-five thousand for support The passage of this bill would close up many of these mills and entail hardship and want upon a people least able to stand it And all this to protect the western hog.

On motion of Strubei. cf Iowa, the senate amendment providing for town bite entries of land in Oklahoma, and a conference was ordered The house went into committee of the whole on the naval appropriation bill. Mr. Wilkinson, of Louisiana, said he would not emulate Great Britain in building Bhips. But China had better fighting armament to-day than tho United States. This government had been taking extreme measures with China, it was the part of proper precau lion to build ships, which could cope with those nations upon which continue ly had been last. He advocated the es tabiahment of a navy yard at Algiers, Louisiana. Mr. Adams, of Illinois, said the people he represented were anxious for a navy yard at the mouth of the Mississippi river. Mr Coleman, of Louisiana, advocated New Orleans. Pending final action, the committee rose and the house adjourned. NEGRO VB. BOB. lesthsra Colored BsprMsataUvM 8p«ak Aeolist tko Lord Btl! Washington, April 9.—-By request of the house the committee on agriculture to day re-opened the bearing on the Conger lard compound hill and Butterwort!* anti-option bill,both of which had been re ported to the house with favorable recommendations. On the first named bill Messrs, A. Graves, representing the Georgia Agricultural ssociation, and J. P, Jones, representing the Colored Cotton Farmers and* Planters of Arkansas (both colored men), made arguments against its passage. Graves pleaded for the protection of the cotton seed industry against the burdens imposed by the bio. on the ground that it had contributed more than anything else to improve the con RepreMototlve Boo doll’s Mock Wore*. Washington, April 9. — Represents tive Randall has experienced another relapse and after passing a bad night his condition this morning' was much worse lh an yesterday. Randall’s physicians said this afternoon that the condition of the patient was very serious, although they say he is slightly better than he was last night. MR CLARKSON WILL BETIRE. It is definitely announced that J. 8. Clarkson, first assistant postmaster general, will retire on June I Mr. Clarkson’s resignation, to take effect on that date, has been prepared and will be handed in shortly. Mr Clarkson is tired of the place and its drudgery. The pay is 14 OOO a year, and this is not at all commensurate with his duties. Besides, as he says, he only took the place temporarily, and he has been ready to leave it for a number of months. He has been importuned to hang on until now, when he can turn over the office to other hands. THE ANTI-OPTION BILL. Messrs. Counselman and Nelso, of the Chicago board of trade, to day argued against the Butterworth anti-option bill Counselman endorsed the first section of the bill, forbidding privileged or class dealing. The section, however, which forbids dealing by any one but the producer and the purchaser direct from him, in any article not in possession of the seller, wiped out the business of himself and all legitimate as well as illegitimate dealers. The bill would damage the farmers more than it could possibly aid them. If the producer should sell direct to the consumer the farmers of Kansas and Nebraska in stead of receiving ten and fifteen cents a bushel this winter for corn, which was little enough, would not have received five cents a bushel. There must be middle men. The trouble sought to be a1 ltviated by the bill arose from the bucket shop dealings which were transactions pure and simple, cago board of trade is fighting the bucket shops, which the speaker likened to faro banks, the proprietor being the dealer. Counselman was given a copy of the amended bill to study with a view of suggesting a provision by which ligitimate dealers may be protected and the business of illegitimate speculators abolished. AMENDING THE INTERSTATE COMMERCE ACT. Senator Wilson to day from the interstate commerce committee reported with amendments the bill to amend section 3 of the interstate commerce act. The bill as amended provides “that any article of commerce the manufacture or sale of which is prohibited within any state shall not be transported or conveyed into such states, but this shall not be held to prohibit franc -portation of such article of commerce to persons in such states authorized by law to receive the same, or through such state to any other state or territory in which such manufacture or sale is not permitted.” THE TARIFF BILL. The republican members of the ways and means committee were in conference this afternoon, sdling the finishing touches to the tariff bill- The most important change made was in the schedule relating to fine linens, and here the committee reconsidered all the former ac tion; wiped out the provision that increased the duty to be collected in 1892, and fixed the rates as they stand in the existing law. THE ILLINOIS CANAL The secretary of war to-day transmitted to the house the report of Captain Marshall upon the location of the Illiaois and Mississippi canal, in compliance with the river and harbor act of August I, 1888. Captain Marshall reports the detailed estimates for construction of the canal will not differ materially from the estimate of 86.524.052 already made. THE WORLD 8 FAIR BILL The senate world’s fair sub committee discussed the world’s fair project for an hour oi two this morning. No conclusion was reached. The sub committee has received Chicago letters and other documents bearing upon the amount and validity of Chicago subscriptions and will report the facts to the full committee Friday morning. THE ROCK ISLAND SUSTAINED. Washington, April 9—The interstate commerce commission has decided the case of D. S Alford against the Rock Island railroad. The Rock Island acquired the right to run through trains over the Union Pacific road between Kansas City and Topeka under the condition that no intermediate business should be done. Alford, a resident of Lawrence, complained that the Rock Island refused traffic at Lawrence, one of the intermediate towns. The commission held the Rock Island was not bound to do local business prohibited by its contract with the Union Pacific road. MARRIED. John B. Moore, third assistant secretary of state, was married this morning to Miss Helen Frances Toland, niece of Mrs. General Ricketts. APPOINTMENT. The president to day sent to the sen ate the nomination of A Harper to be United States attorney for the western district of Wisconsin. WASHINGTON GOSSIP. Acting Judge Advocate General Lieber made a report to General Schofield to-day in regard to the Steele-Wild court menial and it ii likely it will be acted upon and made public to-morrow. The president has approved the act Pittsburg, April 9.—Western Pennsylvania was visited by a severe rain, wind and electric storm this morning. Great damage was done and at least two lives lost. In this city a number of houses were struck by lightning and several persons stunned but not seriously injured. The rain fell in torrents, flooding cellars and causing small streams to overflow. At West Elizabeth two children of George Beattie were drowned while crossing Lobb’e Run* At Indiana a flouring mill was struck by lightning and burned. In West Moreland county the rain fell in torrents for two hours. All the streams overflowed their banks and much property was washed away. At Penn Station a number of families were compelled to vacate their houses. Up the Manor valley the greatest damage was done. Most of the bridges were carried away and the Manor Valley railroad was badly washed out. County roads are deeply gutted, rendering travel dangerous. At Tyrone the Juniata river is over its banks, houses and lots inundated and the people have been compelled to move In Cambria county the Conemaugh river and 8tony creek are again raging and the lower portion of Johnstown is under water. Several bridges have been washed away and operations at the mills are suspended. At eight o’clock tonight the water was two feet deep in the telegraph office._ Jakoatowa Acoin Flooded.

Considerable damage has been done to the Cambria mills. It ie thought the water will recede so morrow. TA* Carpenter*’ stria* at TO* Clc«rau&«n Chicago April 9 —The striking car-pesters have pickets at all depots »nd suburban towns, and whenever they find laborers coming to town to work they generally succeed in inducing them to change    their minds.    The strike is costing    the union    over 835 OOO a week, but they say    they are prepared for an    all summer’s    siege. When their money is exhausted they claim they will fall back on the national council, behind which is the Federation of Labor. They claim to be supported by every labor organization in the United States. The struggle is for the recognition Gf the union and the bosses dec! they will not grant this. THS CIGAR MAKERS The cigar maker’s troubles took a new turn this morning when fifty non-union men employed at the Columbia factory struck for higher wages. While they were negotiating with the representatives of the cigar makers union with a view cf joining that body, two of their leaders were arrested on the charge of intimidation. An important development in the strikers’ favor is learned to night. The committee of non-union master carpenters called on the strike committee this evening and had a lengthy confer ence. There are fifteen to sixteen hundred of these small bosses in the city, employiag nearly if not quite half the journeymen and they object to the large bosses, who compose the Builders’ Exchange, monopolizing and controlling all the business They proposed to the men to form an alliance with the strikers. They are and have been willing to grant the men’s demands, but the action of the association masters has locked them out. This they resent, and a meeting has been called for to-morrow to form an association. Oae of their leaders said late to-night: “You can say that within a day or two the non-association bosses will have all their men at work again at union rates and hours, while the Carpenters and Builders’ association will find itself reduced to the necessity of coming to the strikers’ terms, or remaining without help.” This arrangement, if made, will result in more than half the strikers going back to work, and will strengthen the cause of the others immensely.

It is understood the liabilities amount to over $100,-OOO, although the members of the firm assert that the assets will fully cover all indebtedness. A number of creditors who have confidence in the firm have expressed their willingness to allow the firm to continue the business, although it is doubtful whether the offer will be accepted. The failure is attributed to the steadily decreasing prices of papers. MOSES FRALEY’S AFFAIRS. St. Louis, April 9.—Beyond the fact that Moses Fraley stated this morning he would accept the selling prices announced yesterday. Nothing new has developed in his affairs to-day. Two hundred and five thousand bushels of wheat were bought for export and sixty thousand bushels were bought by local millers. This was all the Fraley wheat, but as all or nearly all of his cash wheat has been carried for him by other persons, the sale cf it will afford him no re-I lief beyond the profit which may accrue above the purchasing price.

I Capitol Building. > Dm Mourn, la., April 9.1 The house began work this morning on the calendar at nine o'clock. The work was not Confined to legalizing acts and indifinite postponements, so several bills of importance were considered. One queer action was brought out on the democratic aide by the filing of a motion to reconsider the vote by which Australian ballot bill was passed ay. The reason for this was that desired to make an amendment. Richman introduced a bill relative to the indebtedness of corporations. The bill by Mr. Ball, relative to payment fees to Mayors when acting as justices of the peace, was lost on engrossment. Mr. Young’s bill tor the destruction of Canada and bull thistles, was ordered engrossed by a vote of 45 to 87. Mr. Lewis’ bill, relative to the manner in which money shall be drawn from the state treasury, was passed under suspension of the ruin The bill provides that no money shall be drawn by the authorities of any state institution unless it is to be used within thirty days from the time at which it is drawn. It will work a saving in interest of from 810, OOO to 820,000 a year. The senate bill for the relief of Mrs. Archie Nest, of Reinbeck, was tak en up and passed under suspension of the rule. There was no opposition to the measure. The bill presented by the judiciary committee to legalize conveyances of real property by trustees and electors under foreign wills was passed. The matter of final adjournment is now entirely settled. Mr. Holbrook had a motion on file to reconsider the vote whereby it was decided to adjourn on the 15th, and this morning he moved to lay the motion on the table. The motion prevailed and this settles the matter. Next Tuesday will close the session. Mr. Lipwell called up his bill entitling persons paying special taxes assessed upon real estate for the improvement of streets in cities existing under special chatters to be credited with the amount of such special taxes so paid, upon being general road or street tax charged against them on account of same real estate. The committee on municipal corporations recommended the passage of the bill, and the recommendation was fol lowed out under t suspension of the rules. Townsend called up Gardner’s bill to authorize certain cities of the second-class to provide for the construction of sewers. On motion of Mr. Lewis the consideration of the appropriations bills was made a special order for to-morrow at 10:30 and were to continue so until diposed of. ’.Two more bills were disposed of, one fixi ng the amount of remission of sentence \f or good behavior to prisoners, and the other for greater safeguards in the manner of adjudging people insane. The forcer bill passed at the last session but was vetoed by Governor Larrabee. The latter MU by Mr. Roe is a good one, and the sedate should pass it. As it is very short it .\given in full. Section I. I Sat section 1400, title ll, chapter 2 of the code, be and the same is hereby so amended by striking out all the words after the word “county,” where it occurs in the ninth line, up to aud including the word “presence.” in the fifteenth tine, ana insert in lieu thereof the foUowing: “And when such person is so brought, the commioners shall notify such person that he has the right to have counsel present,” and also, all the words after the word “commissioner,” in the nineteenth Une, up to and including the word “not,” in the twenty-first line of said section, shaU be stricken out. This thoroughly protects persons charged with insanity and gives them a good right to trial. It was rather hard to get through business in either house for the reason that many of the members are in attendance upon the encampment and have not time to attend to their duties here whUe so many of their comrades are in the city and ready to be entertained. Then, too, many of the old boys have been over here at the state house, and having been aUowed the freedom of the building, the floors of the house and senate there have been more or less of them in attendance every day. Had they been so inclined they might have retarded business greatly, but they merely came and saw what was going on without making themselves in the least obnoxious or troublesome and they thus made a very good impression on all the people around the building. They will always be welcome because they know how to act as guests. The senate this morning took up legalizing acta and indefinite postponements. Two of those passed first were: By Meservey—To legalize the acts of STRIKE TINTS. The Grand Army Boy* Clos* Ihtlr Beearn*——I at D«e Moines. Des Moines, April 9 —The state encampment of the G. A. R. closed to-day. Resolutions were adopted in favor of the erection of a monument costing 8800,000 at Des Moines, and a hospital for the soldiers at Marshalltown; also in favor of a service pension bill and legislation to place the sailor on an equality with the soldier; and endorsing me efforts of the national officers to aid the union soldiers of the south to decorate graves. The officers elected were: Department commander, M P. Mills, of Cedar Rapids, senior vice department commander, C. 8. French, of Lo^an; junior vice de pertinent commander, E. B. Messer, of Hartley; medical director. W. H. Jones, of Forest City; chaplain, J. C Magee, of Marshalltown, and twenty delegates to the national encampment. The place for the meeting of the next encampmet is Dubuque, at a date to be decided upon. The Woman’s Relief Corps elected the following officers: President, Mrs. S. H. Osgood, of Mt. Pleasant; senior vice president, Mrs. Evans, of Clinton : junior vice president, Mrs. Brown, of Marshalltown; treasurer, Mrs. Augusta Cozier, of Mt. Pleasant; chaplain, Mrs. Rebecca Young, of ML Pleasant. When Chagrins will Amgarn—The Matter of Irrigation—The Farmers’ Alliance—A Service Pension BUI—The Tariff BUI. Correspondence to Tan Hawk-Bto. Washington, April 7 —“I do not think that we will be able to get away from here until the latter part of July or possibly the first week in August,” said Senator Allison this morning. “The work of the senate is very well in hand and so far as this body is concerned we might adjourn a great deal earlier than that, but the house is a very large and unwieldy body, and a great deal of time may be expected to be consumed in the discussion of the tariff bill. So, I do not expect that there will be a great deal of debating done in the senate upon that or any other measure this spring. Every year, it seems to me, the senate is grow ing more and more conservative in the matter of speech-making.” “The ally men of this class are very anxious receive service pensions and they been deceived into a belief that lions will secure such a pension bi It is well known here in Waahii legion, however, where ell matters vol vin g appropriations are upon the matter of dollar! and centi act upon the matter of patriotism, a service pension bill oould not pomU be passed without entiling upon country a burden more than it coulj bear. Consequently when e service psi aion bill is present? d to the senate or house it is voted down by an overwhelm! ing majority, and a great many republicans are obliged to vote against it Thereupon the democratic leaders started this cry for service pension stei to the front and denounce the republit party because that party will not nae it entire power to pass a bill of thta kind.

Two Mea Down and a Boy Sacked la a MUI Bac#. Special to THI Hawx-Bts. Ida Grove, April 9.—Last evening a number of men gathered on the bank of the river near a mill to fish, when a small boy in attempting to climb along the iron shaft extending to the wheel-houee, fell into the river. In an instant he was sucked under by the eddies at the dam. Seeing the boy’s helpless position, W. J. Scott plunged into the seething current and, seizing the child, attempted to get him ashore, but was as helpless in the swift current as the child, and both went under. C S. Hoyt, throwing off his coat, plunged in and was with them when the two came up. Seizing the boy, the two men struggled to reach sherd, but the cross currents and the eddies were two powerful and all were sucked under in a bunch. By this time Frank Hillyard secured a pole and, reaching it to them when they came up the third time, was enabled to pull them ashore. The boy was nearly lifeless and it required active work for twenty minutes to resuscitate him. of my state do not seem a senator must not confine all of his labor and attention to the wants, needs and requirements of his own state.” said Senator Squire of the state of Washington, this afternoon. “As a member of the committee on pub lie buildings and ground! it is my duty to consider the right! and needs of a great many committees which have applied for public buildings, bills for the erection of which are before the commit tee for consideration. As a member of the committee on coast defenses, lither ies, and emigration, I am obliged to do a great deal of hustling, in order to do ius tic© to the various matters which come before the senate. Moreover, I have recently been appointed a member of an other committee on irrigation and am obliged to devote a great deal of time to the study of the subject of the irrigation of the semi-arid lands. The people of my state do not seem to realize that this immense amount of work la laid upon me here as a senator, and they are demanding all of my time.” The tariff bill as reported from committee on ways and means meets! with the unequivocal approbation of thej entire republican party in the house anc also in the senate. Certain local ii ♦.ere*ta may induce several members demand that the bill may be amended certain important particulars. Net rimless, the bill as a whole is regard* as a measure which is as nearly perti as human parliamentary and politic science could make it. The basic al ment running all through the bill is th* consideration of the interests of the farmers or agriculturists, as well as the laborers in the cities and manufactories. The capitalists throughout the country are very much dissatisfied with the McKinley bill and they will oppose it to the bitter end. It is a measure, however. which has been drawn entirely in the interests of the poor people, and the republican party will see that it is passed not only in the house but in the senate also.

Nervous debility, poor memory, diffidence, sexual weakness, pimples, cured by Dr. Miles’ Nervine. Samples free at J. H. Witt*’* dmar *tnv*. There is no more energetic worker in the senate than this senator from the new state of WMhington. He is a very early riser, and his work commences as soon as he is awake in the morning. He has been keeping up a tremendous correspondence and doing a great deal of work in the departments for his constituents, but his work keeps him under a continual strain until midnight and oft ener until the small hours of the morn ing. The new state of Washington has much reason to be proud of Senator Squire. L. L. Polk is a North Carolina democrat. He is also president of the Na tional Farmers’ Alliance and Industrial Union. B. H. Clover is vice-president of the alliance, and he is said to be a renegade republican from KansM. T H. Rittenhouse is private secretary to the president of the alliance; and he is also a bitter North Carolina democrat. The fact of the matter is, whether the farmers of this country know it or not, the fellows who are posing as their lead era st WMhington ire delivering them body and soul into democratic party. The first work of the Farmers’ Alliance annex to the democratic party seems to be. to be rid of and kill off Senator I a galls, if possible. For this reMon he has been vigorously assailed at home and abroad during the pMt two months and an effort is being made to defeat him for the senate. They say that he has never done anything for the farmers. Yet he is the author of the bill providing forth© jetties at the mouth of the Mississippi river which gave the fanners of the west transports tion to the markets of the world. They say that he hM been an enemy of the soldiers and done nothing for them, and yet he is the author of the bill granting arrears of pensions; a bill which did more to give to the survivors of the late war financial recognition and put mort* money into the pockets of the boys in blue than any other or all other pen' * 'n bills which have passed congress the farmers of this country desire to.    <n8g< make their National Alliance and    in dustrial union a success, they cu£ \ call off the democratic hounds #».ffpose in WMhington m their leaders, end make it their busineM to assault Senator Ingalls becsuse he is the leading orator and statesman of the republican party. I do not believe that when the farmers and the soldiers Understand this matter they will permit this state of things to continue. It is not s question of whether Ingalls shall be crucified, or not. It is a question, however, whether the farmer* of this country can afford to allow their organization to be handled in such manner as to be made to play second fiddle to either of the great parties. It is not for the welfare of the farmers to permit this thing to continue. President Polk is s man of ability, and so are Rittenhouse and Clover, able men; but, their SMault upon Senator Ingalls, is the beginning of a crusade upon the republican party, and the farmers should see to it that their affairs are conducted more discreetly. I ny these things, sot in the interest cf Senator Ingalls, for he is of no particular individual consequence to me; but, I want the fanners to know what is going on, for their own welfare. If they array the republican party against them, they will make enemies, where they need friends. It would be better for the farmers to be non-political in their Alliance, and thus compel both psrtiee to legislate for their interests. G Now that the Benton lesson hM passed and society has resumed its sway in the national capital the White House will be open to public receptions, and the dear people can go and see the preeident of the United States and his wife and the ladies who assist in receiving with them. The people of this city will be very glad to know that they can call at the White House and be received by the president and his wife and her friends, but it must bo an awful bore to a bu«y man who is trying to look after the interests of a great republic, consider the many bills which are placed before him for his approval or disapproval, and decide upon numberless matters of great importance. However, society is inexorable and compels the obedience and observanoM of kings and emperors, as well as presidents.    Smith    D.    Fry. NEW JIRIIY’B CRT.

April 9.—The joint committee of the legislature, to remedy the present agricultural depression in New Jersey, have agreed on a memorial to congress. It insists on the demontisa-tion of silver as one of the causes of the depression. It also inveighs against opening up further public lands to be given away to foreign syndicates and immigrants when there are plenty of farms in the ©Mt to be cultivated.
