Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - May 1, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. Established: Juke, 1839,]BURLINGTON, IOWA* THURSDAY MORNING, MAY I, 1890. [Price: 15 Cents pee Week. THE ■ORRILL SERVICE PENSION PASSES THE HOUSE. BILL Bitterworth Gets Mad and CaUa Ballot Box Cate Witness a Liar— Blaine Sends an Ultimatum to Guatemala. the pro* Washington, April 30.—After reading of the journal the house needed to vote upon the passage of the bill for the classification of worsted cloths and woolen cloths. The bill passed —yeas 138, nays 0 —the speaker counting a quorum The bill authorizes the secretary of the treasury to classify woolen cloths with imports of worsted cloths which are known under the name of worsted cloth or under the names of worsteds or diagonals or otherwise. The committee on rules reported a resolution providing for the immediate con ■ideation of the senate dependent pension bill to which the Morrill service pension bill may be ordered as a substitute, the previous question to bo considered aa ordered at four o’clock. Mr. Carlisle protested against the adoption of a resolution of this character which took away from the committee the whole right to consider many bills and forced the house to vote upon them after a brief debate. It was not fair to the members of the house; it was not fair to the tax payers of the country. The pension estimates were never liberal enough and he said the expenditures under the senate bill would amount to •45 000,000 and under the house bill to •60, OOO, OOO. Prom this time on he would protest against this system and insist upon it that the members have an opportunity for discussion and amendment. Mr. Henderson, of Iowa, inquired whether the gentlemen on the other side would support the measures desired by the soldier Mr. Carlisle said he was not authorized to speak on this subject, but in his opinion there were gentlemen on the democratic side who would give the soldiers more than the gentleman from Iowa was willing to give them. Mr. Handerson—You are very liberal —when you are out of power. We took care of the soldiers when you had the majority; we intend to take care of them new. After considerable further debate of this nature McKinley said the resolution was justified under the present code of rules and by the precedence set by the house. The republicans wanted to do public business. The country wants results and not speeches The resolution was adopted aud Morrill spoke in support of the bill. The total number of persona put upon the pension roll under the provisions of this bill is estimated at 440,000, at an annual cost of 139 029,000. ThiB act of justice has been too long delayed. If the government is going to grant a service pension it should grant it without delay. Mr. Gjder, of Ohio, spoke for a per diem pension bill and charged the republicans with not being true to their promises to the soldiers. The pending bill might better be entitled the bill “providing pensions of soldiers after they are dead, and their widows, providing they become paupers before they die.” Mr. Martin, of Indiana, held the same view and spoke in support of a per diem pension and the arrears limitation repeal bill. Mr. Parsney, of Missouri, opposed the bill because it made no discrimination between tho three months and three years soldier; because it made no dis Unction between disability resulting from service aud that resulting from vicious conduct of the pensioner. Mr. Kerr, of Iowa, thought the bill went as far as congress could go. in view of the promise republicans had made for a reduction of taxation. Mr Grosvenor, of Ohio, said the bill, if passed, would make the pension roll number 950 000,000, with a total expenditure of one hundred and fifty millions of dollars per annum. This gross sum amounted to nearly forty-three per cent of the gross income of the government. It was munificent generosity such as the world had never before witnessed, and exceeding that of all the civilized nations combined. Mr. Springer opposed the bill because it made no discrimination as to the length of service. Mr. Sayers, of Texas, apposed both bills in tho interest of the taxpayers of the country. After further debate the amendment was agreed to on the Morrill bill, redu clog the age limitation from sixty-two to sixty years. Tne Morrill bill was agreed to as substitute for the senate bill—yeas 183, nays 71. Mr. Yoder moved to recommit the bill with instructions to the committee to report back a per diem pension bill; lost— 48 to 161. The senate bill as amended by the sub stitute, was then passed—179 to 70, amid loud applause. The house then adjourned. The bill authorized the secretary of the treasury to place on the pension roll the name of any officer, or enlisted man of sixty years or over who served ninety days or more in the war and shall have received an honorable discharge; said pension to commence from the date of application and continue during life at the rate of eight dollars per month. All persons who served ninety days or more, honorably discharged and are now, or may hereafter be suffering from mental or physical disability, shall, upon due proof, be placed upon the list”of invalid pensions at eight dollars per month The bill also provides a pension for the widow of any seldier when she shall arrive at the age of sixty years or be without other support than daily labor. take the testimong of Lewis A. Bode, of Cincinnati. The witness testified that in the fall of 1887 Wood had said that Jim Campbell was arranging in Tom Campbells office a bill in the interest of the ballot-box people, and that it would have the support of a number of “big guns.” Witness paid no attention to what Wood said. He knew that a number of prominent people frequented Tom Campbell’s office. A man named McGrath, a barkeeper, had told witness that he hoped the committee would not summon bim. This man had been convicted with the ballot-box matter. This conversation took place four or five days after the committee began its investigation. McGrath said that at a gathering in a Vine street saloon Wood was present with a number of politicians, including Tom Mulvahill, and the ballot-box matter was discussed. Witness was called bere, he presumed, because he tAd Mr. Prior that it was singular that Mr. Butterwort* had said that he had not spoken with Tom Camp bell for eight years, when he (witness) had seen him in Campbell’s office in 1877. Wood was also in the room, but was not talking with Mr. B ltterworth. A ballot box was on the table. There were several other persons in the room. Witness assumed that they were there to discuss the ballot box matter. Mr. Grosvenor pressed him to tell upon what he based that assumption, and the witness said that the men looked as if they were waiting to “get down to business”—they looked anxious He was obliged to admit, however, that he did not have any knowledge upon the subject, and his assumption was based upon Wood’s presence. Mr. Wilson asked what other prominent men besides Mr. Butterwort^ witness saw in Campbell’s office. He could not remember any other. Mr. Wilson—“You said that you believed Wood’s story because you had seen a number of prominent men there.” The witness replied that perhaps that was a misstatement. He should have said “a prominent man.” Mr. Butterworth, who was present, could contain himself no longer, and exclaimed: “You are lying from beginning to end.” Mr. Butterworth cross-examined the witness severely but he adhered to his story. He said he was not a politician and had not come to Washington to asperse the congressman but to tell the iruth. Mr. Butterworth then made a statement denying the testimony of the witness. He said he never had a talk with Campbell or Wood, and never saw Wood or the ballot-box at Campbell’s office. EL. AIN S GUS A'S INDIGN AM T. S. BET. JOSEPH COOrS FIERCE ARRAI8BMEIT OF THE OBOES.

Washington, April SO.—Diplomatic! circles are awaiting with interest the next I development in the case of Editor Hal-1 andor, the American citizen who has been refused permission to return to Guatemala to settle up his business, and in whose behalf Secretary Blaine has taken up the cudgels. It is understood that the secretary cf state has refused to correspond further regarding the matter I with Dr. Crurz the minister from Gaute mala, as a result of the dilatory tactics I pursued by the latter, and that an ultimation has been sent through Minister | Mizner, in which it is stated in vigorous I English that the state department will I be compelled to “adopt vigorous measures” unless its action in the Hollander J case is reconsidered. Senor Crurz claims I that he has furnished the state department with a report tf Hallander’s trial I and the facts preceding his expulsion, but no such records can be found. A DIMS MU8*UM KOTE. Discovery of a Greenback Flinted ae $80 on On# Bids aud $10 on tho OI Hor. Washington, April 30.—An extraordinary note was received at the treasury department for redemption a few days ago. It was a $30 note or a $10 note, according to which side was up, for by some mistake one side was printed with the figures and devices of a $20 bill, while the other had all the figures and devices of a $10. The note was returned to the treasury by the cashier of the First Washington National Bank of Jersey City, who sent it with a rather sarcastic note, intimating that his bank was not going into the freak business, and added that as the treasury had counted that bill for a $20 he would trouble them to send him an ordinary $20 note. The mistake was promptly corrected and an immediate investigation began. All bank notes are printed in blocks of four on one sheet and 250 sheets in one bundle, so that there are always 1,000 notes worked off at one printing. It seems that the four notes printed on a sheet are not all of one denomination. There are always three of one kind and the fourth of another; thus, in this case, three tens and a twenty. It was an easy task to learn just when this bundle had been printed and by which plate printers They were examined, and it was devel oped that one sheet of the four notes, after having been printed on one side, had fallen cif the bundle to the floor The assistant who picked it up turned the sheet upside down when she placed it on the bundle. The rest is easily understood. No trace has yet been found of the second hybrid, which must be wandering around the country. oiNiBAL washing row news THE SENATE. A BMOlaUoa Looking to tho Barrios of Chlnooo Immigration. Washington, April 80.—The com mittee on foreign relations reported a concurrent resolution requesting the president to negotiate with the govern ments of Great Britian and Mexico with a view of securing treaty stipulations for the prevention of the entry into the United States of Chinese from Canada and Mexico, and an immediate consider ation of it was asked. The resolution went over till to-morrow and the consid aration of the customs administration bill was resumed. Mr. Gray moved to amend the bill by N«m1uU*m by the Prttldni, Washington, April 80.—The president sent to the senate the following nominations: Agents for the Indians, Wallace R. Lessor, Sac and Fox agency, Iowa; James E. Helms, Santee agency, Nebraska. THS 8ILVKB BILL ATTACKED. Ralph Beaumont, chairman of the national legislative committee of Knights of Labor, has written Major McKinley a letter, criticizing the pending silver bill Beaumont says, in part:    “On what ground of equity and justice does your party decide to confer the legal tender powers to these certificates for the purpose for which the national banks desire to use Diem and refuse farmers and busi ness men of the country the privilege?” Beaumont then recalls the discrimination between the trade dollar and the standard dollar, and says: “What is to hinder under this bill these same bankers from distriminating against this rate asitia only a legal tender for certain purposes? This bill creates money for the bankera and notes for the farmers. It is not notes the farmers are in need of. They are already burdened down with notes. His money they want with which they may liquidate their indebtedness to their bondsmen. WASHINGTON GOSSIP. Senator Cullom to-day reported favorably the bill introduced by him to authorise the interstate commerce commission to prosecute on inquiries into the Chicago, April 30 —Rev. Joseph Cook, of Boston, addressed a large audience at Central Music hall last night and discussed the aggressions of the Jesuit or clerical party of the Roihan Catholic church. He was introduced by Rev. William Fawcett, who said: “Some ten years ago a man in the presence of Boston culture and thought, in the presence of the Boston public, delivered an address on matters of interest to the whole commonwealth. Suddenly he paused, scanned his audience, and requested Boston culture and Boston thought to bend ear with him to the earth and hearken to the sounds of the tremblings from the foot-fals of three persons in the south. The first was the negro, with a piece of paper in his hand on which a candidate’s name was printed. On one side of him stood his late master, still his master by keeping him in debt and on the other side a figure little seen as yet in American politics, familiar enough in foreign lands, a figure clad in ecclesiastical robes. Since then that man has traveled in many foreign lands, and has stood at that door where in the snow stood Henrys, the Fourth before the papal palace. There he heard a whisper which from Baston came under sea to the door of the Vatican. He said then that the time had come for Americans to stop and think. The laws that were to govern the American people must not be diet ated on the banks of the Tiber, but on the banks of the Potomac. That man, the Rev. Dr Cook, of Boston, I now have the pleas ure to introduce to you.” MB COOK STEPPED FORWARD when the applause subsided and began: Three watchwords for now and the twentieth century: I. Free schools, free church and free state. 2. Avoid both the Rey Ila of sectarianism and the charyb dis of secularism. 3 No ballot for any man who takes his politics from any alien power. In Romanism there are two popes recognized, the white pope and the black pope. The black pope is the head of the Jesuit order. When the black pope and the white pope disagree, it is always the black pope who comes out ahead ; when they agree, when they lock and link hands, they dictate the politics of the world. Daniel O’ Connell said: “My religion I can take from Rome, but my politics from Stamboul.” But eminent Romanists say: “Unless a man takes his politics from Rome he is not a good Catholic ” Charles Jerome Bonaparte says: “The pope may be an exile or a prisoner, but never a subject.” When the White Pope and the Black Pope are agreed, their policy is properly to be entitled “Political Aggression ” It is hard to make an average American audience believe that these pretentions are made seriously. But they do not realize the danger. Rome is alive; she may be a chameleon. Were Europe to become socialistic to-morrow Rome would know how to adapt herself to it. In Canada, Cardinal Taschereau holds almost regal court, while in democratic America Cardinal Gibbons is as accessible as any citizen. It is their governing principle, adaptability to circumstances. The Germans have a proverb that what you wish to have appear in the life of a nation, begin by teaching it in the schools. How well the Jesuit under stands this i There are ten millions of children in the schools now. They will vote byo and-bye, and the influence of that vote will be felt. Let me ask you to suppose a case. Suppose that the Methodists should demand separate schools; suppose that the teachers in those schools were foreigners and loyal to foreign bishops, who in turn were loyal to a prelate, a potentate elected by foreigners. Suppose them men of astuteness, men not to be accused of over-timidity nor of overscrupulousness. More, suppose them celibates, men not only withous homes, but without a country, only their order. Yet more, suppose these men bound by tremendous, binding oaths to this bu preme prelate to obey and support him, suppose them to support the confessional and the system of parochial schools, suppose that the power of the purse be taken from Methodist labor, suppose that they numbered IO 000,000 to-day and expected in ten years to number 20,000,000. Suppose all this. Would they not expect to dominate this country? But in addition to all this make that foreign prelate infallible in morals and politics. Should we be justified in dis cussing Methodist policy? Not justified would we bs in criticising the individuals or the religion, but ten thousand times justified iu discussing seriously a polity of aggrandizement and sectarian ism attempting to dominate our free public school system. American prosperity rests upon a tripod, free church. free school, free state.

That state and church are to be kept fcraver separate, bQt that the Amor ican system, while separating the state from the church, does not separate the state in all particulars from Christianity, and that therefore a recognition of Christian morals, with completely undenominational devotional exercises, is not out of place in public schools. 6. That the school fund is not to be divided, and that those vho contribute to the support of parochial or private schools are not to be excused from tues for the support of public schools. 7. That there shall be no distinctively denominational or sectarian text books in the public schools, and no sectarian interference with common school educa-tion. 8. That state supervision shall be so extended to all private schools as to prevent important mischief to the state arising from their deficient or misleading instruction of those who are to be future citizens of the state. These are the two sets of ideas—Romanism versus universal Protestantism. More than that, it is political Romanism —the clerical party versus free, intelligent Roman Catholics.” Here Dr. Cook dilated upon the __________________ strong measures against the Jesuits aud I iuga of all private schools, parochial school system in the more enlightened South American countries and in Mexico. He said that the spirit of the omit their frightful propositions t marriage and divorce, and I reach s across the centuries to Pascal, e lashes on the Jesuitical brothered system are even more deserved now. In closing, Dr. Cook used cogent argu-1 Igneous workingmen, ments against the exclusion and for the I form on the West retention of the Bible as a work giving the history of one who “spake as never man spake before,” the highest type of morality history furnishes us to offer to growing minds. He devoted considerable time to the unscientific and dangerous doctrines of secularism, which he declared almost as bad as those of sectarianism. He advocated strongly that politicians, journalists and lecturers should strive for Ssnator Edmunds’ proposed amendment to the national constitution providing for non-sectarian education, and particularly for its third proviso “that nothing in this act shall be construed to exclude the Bible from the public schools.” He strongly advocated the re-establish-ment of the old Massachusetts test oath. The remedies against Jesuit aggression in the schools, he declared to be that the state should know and say what should be taught in the public schools, and should supervise and inspect the teach- procession, but this is probably an excessive estimate. The conservative labor men say that at least thirty thousand laboringmen will b9 in line. About one hundred trade organizations will take part besides a large number of miscel Tho parade will Side and march through some of the principle streets to the South S de and to the lake front, where it is proposed to held an enormous out-door mass meeting, with speakers’ stands at three different points. Mayor Cregier and four of the county judges have been asked to speak but it is not yet known whether they will do so. One novel feature of the parade will be three or four hundred women and girl taiior-esses, who recently organized for the eight hour day. They mostly work in small shops in the northwest section of the city. The line will be headed by the carpenters and bricklayers, of whom fully ten thousand will march. THS LABOE I'EOBLISM, Knights of Labor, was asked by the as-! sociated press to night for his views os the labor demonstrations through the country to-morrow. Mr. Powderly said | he had always favored the eight hour law, although at the same time opposed to the methods advocated to bring it about The Knights of Labor had also endorsed it officially. As he understood it to-morrow’s ! demonstrations were to convince I the public that the labor element was (greatly in favor of shorter hours for toilers. It had been frequently alleged I that the eight-hour movement was simply I for effect and that the workmen did not really favor it After the demonstration I to-morrow it is to be hoped there be no untrue charges of the kind. “The plan I which I recommended to the general assembly,” continued Powderly, “was to (reduce the hours of labor one-half an (hour each year till the eight-hour system could be obtained with ten hours’ pay This has been adopted by the Union Pa-(ciflc Railroad company and in three years their men will be working eight hours daily. The American federation of labor is concentrating its efforts in favor of carpenters just now and if they sue ceed it will be a great gain to labor generally. You will see that the eight-hour law is a most righteous one when [ you remember men can perform between the hours cf eight and twelve in the morning more labor with implements of the present than two men could perform in two days cf one hour more with imple ments used forty years ago. However, the solution of the whole problem wili come when the laborer eh&res the profits of his toil, as he will be then working for himself. He can labor eight hours, as he may desire ” ANOTHER SERIOUS BREAI IK THE 90?-mmi W3RIS AT DAVENPORT. was king or ten BLOODSHED IS FIE ABED. FINANCIALLY EMBARRASSED. clerical party was not agreeable to the Catholic layman, and ueed a forcible illustration of how little power nevertheless the Catholic layman had to stay the outward march of the invisible clerical party by comparing him to a handkerchief thrown on the hand and moved by invisible but powerful fingers, moving under the will of a distant brain. He said that the danger was greater than we suspected, and quoted the case of Father Scully, of Cambridgeport, who seven years ago laid a naked boy on the table and lashed his bare back with lashes because he persisted in going to a public school. He said: “You say that Catholics ought to revolt. Those educated in public schools may, but there are 700,000 in Roman Catholic parochial schools. I tell you that political terrorism is beginning to be. felt. How is it done? In Quebec openly from the pulpit the priest dictates who shall be voted for, under penalty of de privation of the sacraments; here it is done more secretly by emissaries who pass the word from city to city who it is that shall be voted for. In 1800 the pro portion of Roman Catholics in the United States was one in eighty-eight, in 1880 it was one in eight. In that same year the proportion of Protestants was one in fourteen; it is now one in five. One in eight, one in five, that is the handwriting on the wall that terrorizes politicians and makes journalists afraid. NOT CHICAGO JOURNALS I must say. Your free independent west will not brook nor fear nor tremble, and I make my best bow to the Chicago journals who have fearlessly said what was right to say on this vital subject. Do you know how far the danger has gone? Not a single dispatch leaves Washington for a foreign country that is not revised by a Catholic committee. What says the Encyclopedia Brittanica, that cold, level-headed, disinterested judge, of the Jesuit college? And thera is a Jesuit college at Washington with $8,000,000 behind it. “It is a naked sword with its hilt at Rome aud its point everywhere.” Half of the Jesuits are here among us. Burned out of Europe, expelled from South America, they are here in our loved land of liberty at work, ever at work. It is hard to arouse people. We have an overweening confidence in the protection of Providence. This slothfulness, this overconfidence, is their opportunity. And the sword is there, at work behind the arras. It is significant, that letter of Bishop Lynch to Lord Randolph Churchill, that the church now selects who shall be premier in Canada, and will soon say who shall be president of the United States. Now let me quote to you from Borne of the tcxt-books they use in the parochial schools. Bishop Gilmour, of Cleveland, has published a “Bible History, to Which is Added a Compendium of Church History, for the Use of Catholic Schools in the United States ” Listen To Catholics is due the discovery of nearly all the valuable inventions we have. Carefully examined, it will be seen that with the exception of the steam engine and railroad, little that is really new has been discovered except by Catholics. That is the law, your Honor! And me Bank of A marie* at Philadelphia Snap cuds Pay meat. Philadelphia, April 30 —The Bank of America has suspended payment. The news of suspension did not occasion much surprise as it was known in certain quarters there had been a heavy drain on the institution all day. The branch offices in different parts of the city were shut up simultaneously with the closing of the main establishment. There are twelve of these branches scattered over the outlying districts and the deposits are said to amount to $700,000. The bank is closely allied to the Insurance company of America and other financial institutions of this city and to day's suspension which is only temporary is due to rumors set afloat affecting the credit of President McFraiane of the Insurance company.

Chicago, April 30.—The sensation of the hour in political circles is the discovery by the state's attorney of gigantic election frauds in the twenty-fourth ward, the same ward in which frauds were committed in 1884, and in connection with which Mackin was sent to the penitentiary. In the registry lists the state’s attorney has discovered over fifty fictitious names. Five of the men who voted them illegally are under arrest and warrants for thirty-five more are out. The frauds were committed in the aldermanic election a short time ago. It is asserted over four hundred fictitious voters cast ballots in the Twenty-fourth ward. This evening several more arrests were made, inclu ding Mike Corcoran, a quite prominent local democratic leader. Tney’ll Tell TMelr Children, Special to Thi Hawk-Bti.

I say, ‘Paralyzed be the arm that is raised to shatter and break in pieces the glorious, incalculably precious, absolutely priceless support of our .country, our free, common, public schools!” You agree with me, you applaud Change the names only. I remember a story told of Webster and Choate. They were opponents in some case before a jury, and Choate was laying down the law to them. Webster looked at him and then at the jury with a depreciating, pitying air as though to say he was Bewry to see them so deceived. Choate, turning to jury and to judge, said: “Despite the compassionate and almost paternal air of my distin guised friend, that is the law, gentlemen of the jury, that is the law, your honor.’ Now let us examine the difference between tion to Geography” listen to this* What cm you say of Jesuit mi«inr. anes in Canada?

Chicago, April 30.—The Journal has made a careful investigation into the situation among the employes in the great packing houses at the stock yards. It finds there are two parties, one led by Frank O’Neill, president of their nnion, and the other by George Schilling, a well known labor let d ^r. The former favors a strike and the latter opposes it The result so far has been to put off decided action in either direction. Careful inquiry leads to the conclusion that at the ouiside one thousand men will strike and it is not balieved the number will exceed five hundred. There are from fifteen thousand to thirty thousand men employed at the stock yards A few men here and there in Morris & Swift’s houses quit work this morning but the desertion did not interfere with the progress of the work. The International Packing House was shut down as a precautionary measure. About fifty gas fitters and machinists at Armour's struck this afternoon for the eight-hour day They went to- other houses and endeavored to get men out, but without success. This evening the indications are that there will be a strike of the butchers and coopers to-morrow, but it is not yet learned what proportion of them will go out. It is asserted by some of the papers that many of the men do not want to strike. The police have made all arrangements for taking charge of the district if the strike takes place to guard against any possible disorders. Representatives from all the packing houses held a consultation this afiernoon and decided that the employes might strike if they wished. No attention was paid to the demand of the packmg house laborers’ union for an eight-hour day and increased wages. The coopers were notified that no alterat ion in the working hours wili be granted, a demonstration in new york.

Cockerill, Julius Chambers and James F. Graham of the New York World for criminal libel of ex-Judge Hilton. The World for some time has been publishing sensational articles regarding Judge Hilton’s relations to the Stewart estate, and, also vague insinuations against the character of Mr Stewart.
