Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - April 11, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: Jura, 18*9.]BURLINGTON, IOWA, FRIDAY MORNING, APRIL ll, 1890. [Price: ll Cents per Week- A PUZZLING QUESTION. THS MONTANA CONTESTED ELECTION CASES STILL BEINS CONSIDERED. The Naval Appropriation Bill Favorably Reported to the Houae—Representative Randall’s Condition —General Washington News. Washington, April IO.—Among the petitions presented to the senate and referred wa:, one from the Galveston, Texas, board of trade against the proposed duty on lead ore. Among bills reported from committees and placed on the calendar were the following: Senate bill appropriating 12,348,-000 for the improvement of the Columbia river, Oregon; house bill to aid vessels disabled in waters coterminous to the United States and Canada; senate bill to revive the grade of lieutenant-general of the army. The Montana election case was again taken up and Call addressed the senate in opposition to the report of the majority of the committee, declaring the two republican claimants, 8 Anders and Power, entitled upon the merits of the case to seals in the senate from Montana. At the conclusion of Call's speech Hoar spoke in support of the majority report Mr. Gray replied to Hoar. Mr. Teller, a member of the committee on privileges and elections, then addressed the senate. He regarded the question not from a partisan point of view, but as a question of law, on the proper determination of which depended the orderly behavior of the senate in the future. The question was whether Montana should bo allowed to select her own representatives. A good many senatera on his side of tike chamber (including himself) thought certain states had not been represented in the senate according to the will of their people. He was not insensible to the great wrong inflicted on the people of those states. He held the only thing to be determined was whether Montana had spoken through its legislatures and, if it had, there was no authority in the senate to revise that finding, or to set it aside. What (he asked) was the controversy in the case? It was whether or not the five men who had sat in the Iron Hall legislature were entitled to seats in that body. If it was not that, then there was no controversy at all. If they were there rightfully, it was the rightful house and the jtint assembly that elected the republican claimants was the rightful and only joint assembly of Montana. But the senate had said, in the Turpin ease, that the legislature of Indiana had to decide for itself who were entitled to a seat in that body. Although there might have been the grossest outrage committed in admitting the men to seats, the senate held (in that caic) that it had no right of interference. The righting of that wron* was not entrusted to the senate of th* United States, but to the people of Indiana. There was no legal distinction between the cases. If the senate should ever proceed to make itself the investigator of elections all over the country there would be an end of its usefulness. If the senate were to exercise power in this case, tho senate j'would have no excuse for not exercising it in the case of senatorial elections in tho several southern states. Mr. Turpie said in the Indiana case the legislature itself passed judicially upon the contested seats, whereas the legislature in Montana had not passed judicially mu the contested seats from 8ilver Bow county. If it had done so there would have been no dispute in this case Mr. Sherman said he found all the facts sufficiently stated in the minority report to control bis judgment He said it was apparent therefrom that a* to the five representatives from Silver Bow county, neither set had certificates according to form. The senate of Montana was a tie; and in the houso were twenty-five republicans and twenty-four democratic members whose rights to seats was not in question There was therefore a repub lican majority on jo.nt ballot; or, if the contest over the Silver Bow county had come to be decided by the house there wa? a majority in the republican side by which the republican contestant oould have been seated. These simple facts, he lh night, contained all the elements of a just decision in the matter, anti showed the republican claimants for seats in the senate had a majority on joiut ballot and had a majority in the nouso without any reference to the members from Silver Bow county. Aft*r some debate between Edmunds and Eustis, Sherman asked the latter whether twenty-five republicans did not constitute a majority of that body. Mr. Eustis admitted that, numerically, twenty-five were more than twenty four; but he added that twenty-five did not make a quorum and that in the constitutional meaning twenty-five was not a larger number than twenty-four. The quorum was twenty eight. He went on to relate some matters within his own experience of returning board measures in his own state and Also referred to the seating of Wm Pin Kellogg in the senate of the United Stales, and said that, with that act on the part of the republican party before his mind, there was notning left to excite his surprise in regard to any contested election Rase. The debate drifted again in the direction of the Turpie case, and Voorhees went on to state the facts in connection with it. The question having been proposed by Kenna as to whether forty senators with unquestioned credentials (forty two being a quorum) could go to work and organise and pass upon the credentials of the other forty-two. whose titles were questioned, Hoar said he would like to think over it a little before undertaking to answer it. That was precisely, Kenna said, the question that presented itself in the Montana cise. Partial response to the question were made by several Bena tora but Kenna said none of them came straight to the poins. Adjourned. TU MOUSE. appropriation for an increase of the navy. They knew this preparation for warfare was an indication of wk with foreign countries. After further debate Holman moved ti strike out the paragraph providing for three battle ships, but leaving in the provision for the armed cruiser; agreed to. Mr. Adams, of Illinois, offered an amendment providing for three low free bosrd coast and harbor defense vessel? of the Monitor type, at a cost not to exceed 92 500,000 each; lost. Mr. Peters then withdrew his motion to strike out the entire clause. The bill was then favorably reported to the house, but no final action was taken and the house adjourned. GIN1BAL WARBINGTON HEWS The Naval Appropriation BUI Favorably Reported. Washington, April IO. - In his prayer this morning the chaplain made a feeling allusion to the illness of Representative Randall. The house went into com mittee of the whole on the naval appro priation bill. Mr. Peters moved to strike out the en tire clause for the increase of the navy He believed the United States had no need of battle ships and possessed all the cruisers that it required. Mr. Cannon said he did not know much about the navy, but, nevertheless, he began to suspect he knew as much as the experts on the floor. He had watched the naval progress, and fears those ships proposed to be built wotted become obsolete before completion. He believed in a small, compact and powerful navy, including the beat type of vessels. But the navy department had reported the Maine end Texas now build lug, would never be duplicated. He was lost in the conflicting opinions of the ex parts. Mr. Kerr, of Iowa, said he represented a district in which there melded many perms who sent him numerous petitions requesting him to vote agelast the HISH OLD TUE ID THE ETAISELlCiL COH-FERENCE AT CHICAGO, Bishop Eschews Faction Form a Separate Meeting and Transact Business —Mysterious Records—The Ackley Conference.

April IO.—The hone commute on Pacific railroads entered upon the formal consideration of the senate bill providing for the settlement of the government indebtedness of the U aion and Central Pacific railroad companies. The first five sections covering the case of the Union Pacific company were approved with a few changes, the most important cf which is the one reducing from 8 per cent to Ii per cent the interest to be paid by the company upon b ands falling due during the next five years. Provisions were made, however, for capitalizing the difference between the H psf cent rate and the full 3 per cent rate for five years, so that the effect of the change is to reduce the amount of payments for a time, but to make the final payments heavy enough to cover the difference. The committee also struck out the fourth section of the clause relating to the government guarantee of bonds. RANDALL’S CONDITION. Representative Randall continues to grow weaker and weaker. The end is near but no one can tell how much longer he may be able to continue the struggle for life An hour may witness his demise or he may live for several days yet. This evening Mr. Randall's strength suffered another depletion and he is weaker than in the morning. At midnight, however, he was resting easily. LIEUT STEELS FOUND GUILTY.

A PROTEST FROM TEXAS Among the petitions presented in the senate and referred was one from the Galveston board of trade agal ast the pro posed duty on lead ore. Chicago, April IO.—The meeting of the Illinois conference of the German Evangelical church which opened this morning in Sheffield Avenue church was inaugurated as anticipated, with a row. Bishop Etcher, who wm regularly assigned to preside over the conference, was on hand early with his supporters as, however, since his appointment he ha8 been deposed from the office of bishop by the trial committee. Secretary Stamm announced that he would open the meeting. At the request of the trustees of the church the opening exercises were held with closed doors and Etcher was excluded, he not being recognized by the conferee c 3 as either bishop or minister. Rev. D. B Byers was selected as temporary chairman. After devotional services there was considerable Equab-bling between the friends and opponents of Escher. Finally Revs. Gaeeslo and Hemmell called out for members of the Illinois conference to withdraw to th e Wisconsin street church. In respo nee thirty-two ministers withdrew, leaving about seventy in session. After a little formal business those left took a recess until afternoon, at which time devotional exercises were held and adjournment had until to-morrow. The seceeders organized at the Wisconsin Street church in the afternoon and Rev. Mr. Eifrink made a motion that a notice be sent to preachers in the other faction that if they desired to join the real and only conference they would be given until two o’clock to morrow to do so, after which time all remaining out would be expelled from the church. Biahop Escher made a statement of the case from his standpoint, pointing out that at the first trial he was acquitted of the charges brought against him, but that the Pennsylvania conference took the matter up again. He had received no evidence of an official character that he had been deposed, and he still claimed the right to preside at the Illinois conference, from which they had been driven cut. A telegram from Bishop Bowman, at Ackley, Iowa, announced that the “bolters” there were making a desperate opposition to him, but that he was holding the fort. This was received with cheers. Resolutions prepared by Rev. Mr. Wellman were unanimously adopted. They sustain Bishops Etcher and Bow man and condemn tho action of the op posing faction to form an “illegal organization” as revolutionary. The so called trials of Etcher and Bowman were declared to be contrary to the directions of discipline and therefore null and void. The conference district was divided into two presiding elder districts, aud W. Neitz, of Peoria and W. SJiamus, of Geneseo, were elected presiding elders At the afternoon session of the Sheffield avenue conference Mr. Byers, the chairman, was noticeably absent, the Escher faction having suited out a writ of replevin to recover the records of the conference and had a constable to serve it, but Byers and the records were not in sight.

All of them are colored men and have been under arrest for some days, their confinement having been kept secret. The story as developed by the police is to the effect that the wcman went to a place on State street on the evening of March 16, and soon afterwards left there in company with Pelkey; that they went to Englewood and met Rice; that she went with Rice to a house occupied by himself and Linzey ; that a quarrel ensued in which Rice struck the woman on the head with a cue, and that, seeing she did not recover consciousness, he carried or dragged her to the place where she was found. This is the police theory, notwithstanding the fact that Rice charges the murder upon Linzey. ROUGH ON THE FAMILY* LINCE LAB) LOW.

Ottawa, Oat, April IO.—The debate on the new tariff bill was adjourned last night shortly after midnight without the adoption of the clause concerning the increased duty on live cattle, sheep and hogs. The debate will be continued today and there is no doubt the fight will be long and furious. Freeman said be would prefer to take Secretary of State Blaine’s idea of reciprocity, which was that Canada could only get reciprocity by accepting political union, rather than the opinion of Hill regarding reciprocity Rowell, the minister of customs, denied that there was any spirit of retaliation in the tariff changes. S3 far as the Canadian government was concerned, it had ne intention to reduce the tariff. As to the course which the United States was pursuing, it was prompted by such speeches as were delivered by the oppo aition member. The object of Amen cans was to get Canada politically allied to the United States. week. They realized that there was little time to spare and therefore the most should be made of it. Promptly at nine o'clock the gavel fell and ss the chaplains had finished praying the work began. Boon after the senate was called to order the clerk read the following resolution by Caldwell: Resolved, That the president of the senate be instructed to appoint a sifting committee of five members to look over all the bills except approved and all bills favorably reported by such committee shall be taken up in the order in which they are reported by the committee. On objection is was laid over under the rule. Senator Weidman offered a resolution providing for evening sessions daily until otherwise ordered. It amended to except Monday evening and thus passed. On motion of Senator Caldwell the pharmacy bill was taken up and partially read, when the special order on the liquor license bill came and the pharmacy bill was Referred. The matter up for discussion in the license bill was Finn’s amendment compelling counties to provide inebiate asylums before issuing any liquor licenses, Senator Bolter spoke against the amend ment, saying it was not introduced in good faith and was intended only to kill the bill. Senator Finn said in defense of his amendment that the opposition had not brought forward any argument against the amendment proposed, except that it would kill the bill. He had made it in good faith and had adopted the suggestion of Governor Boies in making it Further, it was not just to let Dubuque run saloons and derive the benefit therefrom, while Taylor county had to help foot the bills if a state inebriate asylum was established. Senator Dodge admired the big-heart-edncss of Finn in desiring to have unfortunates cared for. but he doubted his sincerity. Drunkenness is a disease and should be treated as such. It was not the proper policy of the state to care for inebriates any differently than it did for other unfortunates. It was wrong to place a state charge upon the various counties. Senator Price was of the opinion that if the border counties insisted on local option they shou d not look upon counties not being afflicted with saloons bearing part of the expense of those that bring out all the drunkards. Senator Parrott thought that because of the fact that Schmidt had introduced a bill provining for an inebriate asylum be should favor the provision made by this amendment. Senator Kegler moved to amend by making the erection of such asylums op tional. After some discussion this amendment was voted down by a vote of 29 to 21. Senator Dodge offered an amendment to the effect that these local asylums be cared for the same as other state inst! tutions. This in turn was voted down without discussion. The amendment by Finn was lost Senator Smith, of Linn, moved to amend by extending the option to towns of 4,000 inhabitants. This amendment was adopted and then the bill came up for engrossment. The roll was called and the senators voted as follows: were united in marriage. The honeymoon was happy but brief, and one night while under the ic fl lence of liquor Fox made some remains that aroused the suspicions of his wife A few days later a letter arrived frcm the west, asking if Fox was in Maquoketa. Other iiquiriea arrived, and it was finally discovered that Fox was the husband of three wives, from none of whom he had been divorced, and that numberless bills had been left unpaid by him in various parts of the country. It was arranged to ar rest him last Sunday, but Fox got wind of the officers’ purpose and fled. He was seen here Monday, but since then has evaded his pursuers. HJS WIFE WAS DYING Tim Colt ms* Arrested for Fast Drlv-1*1 wails GoIbk for tao Doctor. Ft. Dodge, lo., April 9 — An incident of an exceedingly sad nature occured in this city MDnday. Tim Coleman, a farmer living near this place, was driving at a brake-neck speed through one of our principal streets, when he was held up by the policemen for violating the city ordin&ce. “For the Lord sake dDn’t stop me, boys!” Tim exclaimed, trying to whip up his horses. “No you don’t,*' shouted one of the officers as he grabbed the bridles. “You’r driving faster than the law allows and you’ll have to come along and answer for it.” “But gentlemen,” expostulated Tim, “I’m in a hurry.

O. don’t keep me here. My wife is dying! ’ The scene was indescribable Loud cries of “Shame!” “Shame! ” “Release him!” were followed by instant action. A crowd of sympathizers was around Tim in a second; others hf.d bolted through the door and were instantly back with a doctor and a fast rig Tim was bundled in and rapidly the vehicle sped toward the little farm house. Tim’a little girl opened the door. Her eyes were red with weeping. “O, papa, papa, you were gone so long and now it’s too late!” Tim’a wife was dead. Hon and followed the marquis to the hotel.

CUBA’S ANNEXATION Mora Tba Question Dally Growl** Serious. Nnw York, April IO.—A correspondent of the Herald writing from Havana under date of April 5, says the question of annexation of Cuba to the United States is daily growing more serious and the government commences to be alarmed at the propagation that is more or less openly being carried on with results that will soon be known. The campaign that has been opened by several leading pa p?ra is courageously sustained in remarkable editorials, one having gone so far as to assert some weeks ago that the Span ish government, through their disgrace ful and ruinous administration, is doing more than anybody else to throw Caba into the arms of the United States. In a remarkable editorial, whose author war arraigned, it was said some time ago that the only way annexation could be avoided was to immediately proclaim the autonomy of Cobs, and that the cooserv alive petty should join the liberals in their efforts to obtain from Spain self government for the island. The fact beyond all doubt is that there are a large number of annexationists in Cuba and some in the United States. The question now is to know whether any members cf the government at Washington would be willing to favor the movement just in Histed in Cuba.
