Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - April 24, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWKEYE. Established: June, 1839.]BCBLDCeTON, IOWA, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 24, 1890. [Price: 15 Cents per Week. IflLY FORM IHE TFX! FOR A RED HOT DEBATE IN THE HOOSE. The Oklahoma Bill Ready for the President** Signature—The Proposed Silver Bill—General Washington News. Washington, April 23 —In the house Harmer, of Pennsylvania, presented a memorial of the manufacturer’s club of Philadelphia, representing many millions of capital invested in American industries and many thousands of workingmen earning American wages, in favor of prompt action on tariff legislation which shall check the importation of articles produced by our own people; referred. The house then went into committee of the whole, with Payson, of Illinois, in the chair, on the* legislative appropriation bill, the pending question being on the motion to strike out the clause providing clerks for senators. After considerable debate the motion to strike out was lost. In speaking on a verbal amendment, Kelley, of Kansas, replied to the remark by Allen to the effect that some newly appointed postmasters in Mississippi had moved their cilices into the country, by saying he learned at the postc ffi je department that in some place:? it had been impossible for the republican postmaster to i;*cure a location in town and he was obliged togo to the country. He also read a letter from Postmaster Finley, at Abbeville, South Carolina, stating that shortly after his appointment he was set upon bv a mob led by a son of Congressman Cothran, boated with barbed wires and ordered to leave town. This provoke d a heated political debate. Mr. Knloe asked if Kelly wrote the letter for the postmaster, aul Kelly replied he had. because on account of the beating received Finley’s arm was paralyzed. These statements were received with much de risivo laughter on the democratic side, which led Powell, of Illinois, to remark that the gentlemen on the other side thought it was funny to hear accounts of murders and beating with barbed wires. Mr Kell y pr<. cowled to read from letters of i uilrern postmasters to First Assistant Postmaster General Clarkson complaining of outrages In the course of the discussion Tarsney asked about tho litigation going on between Kelly and his son against a colored congrega tion in Fort Smith to prevent the erection of a colored church on the ground that it was a nuisance. Mr Kelly denied any such litigation and said ho did not own any land in Arka isas. McRae and Rogers, however, staled that Kelly’s son was involved in such a litigation. Mr Allen, of Mississippi, said the gentleman from Kansas seemed to be the recognized mouthpiece of tho post officio department of the administration. Thoro had never been a time in the history of the ti <). P when sr cithern out rages were more necessary for the purposes of that party. It had gone to the ws.'i on tho tariIT; busted higher than a kite on tho civi' Advice; elections were going against it, and if it could not carry tho election on southern outrages the chances of the G O P. were gone. He had in his desk along list of Kansas outrages but would not descend to that sort of debate. Mr. Cothran, of South Carolina, speaking of tho Abbeville matter, said after tho w,ir a northern mon was appointed p master and served until Arthur’s term, when he died and his widow succeeded him. When this administration came in Finley flied an application in which he misrepresented and defamed the character of the postmistress. There was a feeding of outrage against him and a number of young men, including Cothran’s son, went to Finley’s house one night and made a demonstration— not for the purpose of doing bim any hat rn. With a guilty conscience ha ran out of the back door and in jumping down broke his leg. The young men sent for a physician and paid all ex ponses Mr. Rogers, of Arkansas, called attention to the fact, that under leave to print, Kelly had printed in the Record vile columnies on tho state of Arkansas, and proceeded to score Kelly sharply. He then read a long list of Kansas out rages, and aeked if it was not time Kelly should exercise his luminous intellect in home mi-aions. In the course of his re marks he bitterly assailed ‘Toker Jack” McClure, who had been appointed to conduct certain government cases in Arkansas. Mr. Featherstone, of Arkansas, replied sharply to Rogers defending Judge Mc Ciure and Powell Clayton He (Feather-stone) was not here to defame Arkansas, but it seemed to be a crime to tell the truth. Tho party in power in Arkansas vested its power not on the votes of the honest majority, but on stuffed ballot boxes. Pending further discussion, the committee rose and the house adjourned. 1111s: SKNais:. investigation made by the committee on interstate commerce into the relations of J he raiirotd? of the United States and Canada and also whether there are any discrimination in charges made for! tolls against the United States vessels passing through the Welland and! St. Lawrence canals. The report asserts that unjust discrimination is made by Canada against American vessels on the lake? in the matter of entrance ard clearance fees. The vessels passing) through tho Welland canal bound to Montre&l have a rebate made of a portion of the toils paid for the canal passage; but if bound to any American port or to the St. Lawrence river no rebate is made. This, the report claims, is a violation of the provisions of the treaty of) Washington. In conclusion, the report says: ‘Thus it is that by attacking the narrow margins cf profit in the transportation business here and there our competitor at. the north has been exploiting upon American commerce for many years It is doing that very thing today on a more high-handed and exultant way than ever before. All that is necessary for the governments of Great, Britain or Canada to do is to threw j sufficient advantage in favor of British steamers, Canadian fishing vessels and Canadian railroads to turn our commerre frrm tho American ocean steamers, American fishing vessels, American rail roads ard American seaports. This is being done not only by subvention, but also by enabling statutory provisions which go in toe face of the interstate commerce act of the United Slates.

I was not present when the matter was discussed, as I was on the sick list myself. 8ince then, however, I find that some of my patrons have had trouble for after I have certified that tho pupil is free from contagion, under the ruling of the school board they inuit hunt up the health c Airer and have him endorse my certificate. Frequently he canaut be found rn his cfi! re wnen parties call for this endorsement, and time is just as valuable to a^ laboring man as t)a professional one He must call again or his child is excluded from school. The state board of health contemplates no circumlocutory transactions as the following questions and answers published as “Decisions of the 8:ate Board” in the March number of their Monthly Bulletin, edited by J F. Kennedy, A M , M D , published at Des Moines, will satisfy any one whose time is valuable. Question—“Will the certificate of the attending physician that there is no danger of contagion re admit a pupil excluded from school becaueo of contagious disease, or must the health physician of the local board make such certif! cate?” Answer—“The power to readmit a pupil in the case put is vested in the local board, and the approval by the board, or the health rffieer as an executive (fficer of the board of the attending physician’6 certificate is necessary under the regulations made by the state board ” Under this ruling one would naturally suppose that the board would have the power by resolution to endorse the certificates of respectable practitioners who have had charge of cases of contagion, and who, on account of their own families, are interested in stamping our contagious diseases, rather than have such certificate come f rom a man who has had nothing to do with the case. The effect of this ruling will be that physicians will become careless in regard to reporting their cases, and the health officer will have his hands full, visiting other physician’s patients to determine whether they free from conta gion.

They Make Twenty Base Hits and But Four Errors—The Terrific Slugging of the Burlington* the Oily Feature, Special to The Hawk-Eye. Cedar Rapids, Iowa, April 38 —To day was a gala day in Cedar Rapids, the Odd Fellows holding their state encampment and the Booth-Modjeska engagement crowding the city with strangers and filling the ball park to witness the opening of the base ball season by the Burlington team. The game was of little merit, the terrific slugging of the visitors being the only noticeable feature. Tapp and Dougherty opened ihe game for the home team and Stephen and Tully for the visitors. Tapp retired in the fifth inning in favor of Hughey and in the seventh inning with the score 18 to 2, Shugett relieved Stephen in the box.

It was a great game, that between the home team and the Burlington yesterday. Wnen the secretary of the home team made the visitors a proposition to play, in spite of the threatening rain, for half the gate money, they laughed at him and said: “We’U play for all of it, or nothing.” and the proposition was accepted. The game was called at 2:39, with Oreiup and Glam at the points for the home team, and Crowell and Tully for the visitors. P. 8tancliff walked over the domain of the umpire and gave his decisions with a firmness which was admirable. The game was a brilliant one throughout. Oreiup was not in his beat condition, owing to the weatner, but struck out three against one for Iris opponent. The visitors got three bases off from hi n on balls, while seven of the home team trotted to first from the inac curate pitching of Mr. Crowell. The game was free from errors, not a single one being recorded against either nine. There was not a stolen base either, and everywhere there was evidences of blood. When the visitors found they could not line Orelup’s zigzags they took to bunting them to get to first. Crowell in the eighth made what seemed to be a successful attempt but a lightning play of Oreiup to first slaughtered him. In the ninth Breckenridge made a safe two-bagger, but seized with the burning de sire to keep his team from a shut-out at-attempted to make third. Mucker quietly threw the long fly to Sharp at second who sent it with howitzer force to Val at third and Breckenridge despite his illustrious Kentucky ancestor, expired. Oreiup was the only man who scored and he got to first on balls. The Burlingtons play here on Friday. and the Oitumwas go to Burlington on Saturday. StanSlBi of «k* Clibi Ka*** at Mempai*.
