Washington, May I.—A joint meeting of the house and senate committees on immigration was held to-day. Representative Owen, chairman of the house committee' which investigated the subject at New York, made a statement, rho inspection of immigrants at Castle Garden he pronounced a farce and said immigrants were fleeced by boarding house sharpers. The observation of the immigrant officials is that that undesirable element is increasing. Italians are coming in hnrds, without money and without clothes, except what they wear or carry in bags. Owen said the Italian bankers in this country send agents to Italy to solicit natives of that country to come to America. These agents swindle the Italians, charging them as high as $90 for a ticket from Naples to New York, the price of wfci?h is $26. On arriving at New York, they go to boarding houses kept or controlled by these Italian bankers and are thence sent out to labor under contracts made by the bankers, or padrons. with the employers. If their pay is fixed at $1 25 a day the padrons take 25 cents. Besides, he furnishes a shanty in which the men live while at work, and has a man in charge of that. The Italians are watchful and suspicious, so it is impossible for Americans to get at them. Within the past eight years they have almost entirely supplanted the other races in the ranks of unskilled labor in New York city. In one square mile in New York city, there are 270,000 people 8.000 more than in any other square mile on the earth', surface lhe.e ‘“8 *)“TOj*:"2"e whether the manufacture of arttclea people speak a foreign language,(Italian), observe foreign customs, and are surrounded by a Chinese wall over which they never come and over which no American can go. The quality of immigration is on the whole deteriorating, the percentage of Germans and Swedes is decreasing, and the Italians and Hungarians are increasing. Mr. Lehlbach expressed the opinion that the contract labor law in its present form was a farce. GBNBRAI* WASHINGTON NEWS. Washington, May I.—Mr. Vest, from the select committee on meat products, made a report and accompanied it with an explanation. He said the committee had investigated the subject very fully and had now reported four measures for the consideration of the senate. The first was the concurrent resolution asking the president to inaugurate a diplomatic correspondence with the authorities cf Great Britain to bring about the repeal or modification of the existing quarantine relations of the united kingdom. The next measure was one providing for a national inspection law and requiring all live cattle to be inspected when exported, and also cattle intended for exportation or the meat of which is intended for exportation. The next measure was intended to prohibit the m«nopoly now practiced ai to the storage capacity of steam-ships carrying cattle to foreign countries Evidence had shown that in New York the practice had obtained among steamship companies belonging to foreign nations (there being no American lines) of leasing or | contracting, sometimes a single vessel, sometimes all the vessels in a line, for a j number of months in advance, to one person. The result was other shippers had no opportunity of putting cattle in the foreign market at all. Another of the b'lls was one intended to prevent the discrimination which now existed on all railroads belonging to the Trunk Lines association under which no mileage was given to any of the improved cattle cars carrying live cattle from the west to the east, while refrigerator cars do get mileage Mr. Vest asked in the name of the cattle raisers of the country that the bills be taken up and considered at an early day, Mr. Cullom recogn;zad the importance of the measures aud declared himself anxious to secure an early consideration. He asked Vest whether the report was very long or whether it could be printed soon. Mr. Vest replied the report covered about one hundred pages of type written matter and he supposed it could be printed in a few days. The report of Vest’s committee accompanying the bills is a very lengthy one. The committee says when the examination of witnesses began in St.Louis, it was evident that conflicting influences were at work. especially in the International Cattle Range association, and that industrious efforts were being made to prevent inquiries of the committee affecting in jo riously the dressed beef interest of Chicago. There was no diversity of opinion among the witnesses as to prices and as to the fact that the methods of selling beef cattle had been entirely revolutionized in the past ten years. The revolution took the form of a concentration of the market for cattle at few points with the controlling market at Chicago. This change, the committee says, is due principally to the fact that a few enterprising men from Chicago are able, through their generous capital, to centralize and control the business at that point. The dressed beef and canning business is practically in the hands of four establishments in Chicago—Armour So Co., (Swift So Co., Nelson, Morris & Co, and Hammond & Co. Whaever difference of opinion is expressed as to the existence of a combination between these firms uot to bid against each other in the purchase of cattle, there was no hesitation on the part of the witnesses, even when obviously prejudiced in favor of the packers. In stating that the central market was absolutely in the grasp of those four houses if they choose to exercise it As a result of the influence of these houses the committee noticed a reluctance on the part of the cattle raisers and commission men to testify to facts or opinions which might prejudice them in future transactions. The principal inquiry which the committee was directed to make was into the existence of a combination by reason of which the prices of beef aud beef cat tie had been so controlled and affected as to diminish the prices paid the producer without lessoning the cost of meat to the consumer. The facts developed, the committee thinks,proves overwhelmingly that there exists such a combine. The commission quotes a statement from Ar incur’s testimony that beef cattle increased more rapidly than the popula tion in the last five years, from which he argued the low prices of beef cattle was partly due to over production. This argument inn committee states was not warrant* d by the facts. The railroad trunk lines, says the committee, control the entire meat traffic of the country in the interests of the railroad companies. As to the remedies the committee says congress in a bill recently passed by the senate on the subject of trusts, has gone as far as its power extends. State legis lation must supplement that of congress to punish the combines operating within the state lines, and active and intelligent officials must be found to enfore the laws enacted. In conclusion the committee says:    "If    the    cattle raisers of the United States are only true to them selves the immediate future promises a deliverance from the present evil. The worst feature of the cattle trade is the fact that so many cows and calves are being thrown upon the market, the indi cation being that the producers are panic stricken and anxious to realize now without regal d t® the future. There were marketed atCnicago during the past year 8,023,281 cattle, of which from 25 to SO per cent were cows, and 4 per cent were calves. Cattle raisers should be the most competent judges as to their own interests, but if they will accept a lug gestion from the committee they will cease marketing their breeding aud immature stock, and diligently prepare for a larger supply and a brighter future. It is only a question of time—and a very brief time when the problem will be that of supplying our own people with beef without regard to foreign markets/* The house amendment to the senate bill for a public building at Aurora, Uli nois, was uon-concurred in and a con ference was asked. The customs administrative biff was taken up, the pending question being on Gray*s amendment securing to the aggrieved importer the right to bring a common law suit against the coUector. Mr. Hiscodk proposed an amendment to the effect nth at the court in its discre tion, may receive additional evidence, end send difficult questions of fact for trial to a jury. After a long discussion Gray s amendment was laid on the table by a party vote.

The decision, ae I read it, ie that a party in this •tate may bring into the state from other states Uquor in original packages, and can sell the same to a second party without liability to arrest under our prohibitory law. This, aa I interpret it, means that it win be possible to sell liquor in Kansas in origins! packages. I fear that it is a serious if not a fatal blow to prohibition. Our law has never attempted to prohibit the importation of Hquors into this state, for the framers of the law weU knew that'that could not be done under the statutes of the United States regulating the traffic of common carriers between the states. We have Des Moines, May I.—The decision of the United States supreme court that Iowa cannot interfere with the importa- ____________ tion of liquor has created great comment only sought to prevent the sale of such hen.

T --- foreign dealers i£ll open agencies for the sale of their liquor in every city in the state, and persons desiring wet goods apply there and thus become importers and receive what they want in the original package, over which the state will have no control. Other prohibitionists say that this decision will not interfere with the. original purpose of the prohibitory law, which was to shut up the salyons. They can still do that even if every citizen whe-wants beer on his own table is at liberty to import it from Omaha or Rock Island by the case. A number of prominent prohibitionists were interviewed here to day, and it is their opinion that the general effect of the decision will be damaging to the law. If much liquor is to be imported for private use many are saying that the state 1^ fear we must look to congress for relief. This is a temperance state, and the people will demand congressional action that will protect us.” Gen. Bradford expressed himself as follows:    .    .    ^    _ Kansas prohibitionists have no need to feel discouraged in this matter.^ It is simply an affiimation of an old principle of Hw. The opinion does not interfere) with the enforcement of the prohibitory law in Kansas upon the same theory that we have been enforcing the law in thd state. We have never in Kansas pup-sued the importer of liquors, whether from any other country or any other state, but we have pursued those who attempted to sell the liquors in violation of the Kansas law after they have been brought into the state from other states or countries.

The anti-prohibitionists regard the deci-| aion as a great victory and a long step toward the repeal of the Iowa law. Governor Boies was interviewed on the decision, and he said he was glad that I it was given. He thought that it I would' remove much of the hypocrisy and deception that is now practiced to evade the law. He thought that many men would be more honest, now that they could get liquor without having to do so much lying about it. He I believed also that the decision was shap state. To illustrate: If a casket of Ii quor were consigned in St. Louis to a party in Topeka it would be an inter-ence with interstate commerce to stop the transportation of that casket of liquors at any point before reaching its destination in Topeka, and that it would be an interference of interstate commerce to in any way prevent the consignee from receiving the goods in Topeka. Now, the question arises, Does the power to receive the goods carry with it the power to sell in original packages? The court says: “ ‘Undoubtedly it is for the legislative branch of the state government to deter Bern* Startling Pension Statistics. Washington, May I.—In a letter to the speaker of the house the secretary of the interior estimates that is will require $83,806,752 annually to give a service pension to every survivor of the late war not now on the rolls, $6,642,817 annually to increase the pensions of those now on the rolls to $8 per month, and $9,716,-768 to widows of deceased soldiers; a total annual expenditure of $100,226,837. THE EIGHT HOUR LAW OF 1860. Washington. May I.—In the house to-day Mr. Reilly, of Pennsylvania, offered a resolution relating to the eight-hour law of June, 1868, declaring mechanics, workmen and laborers, composing as they do the great bulk of our patriotic citizens, are on this first day of May, 1890, agitating and demanding that hence forth eight hours shall constitute a legal day’s work, and resolving that it is the sense of this house that this de mend is reasonable and just, and that it is our belief the inauguration of said system of eight hours for a day’s work would be conductive to public wealth and calculated to advance the industrial, commercial, intellectual and moral welfare of the people Referred WASHINGTON GOSSIP. Ex-President Cleveland appeared before the supreme court to-day and was admitted to practice before that body. Representative Biggs, of California, to-day introduced a bill to repeal the civil service act. The house committee on foreign affairs to-day acted favorably on the resolution introduced by Hitt, looking to the cultivation of reciprocal relations between the United States and other American republics. In the house the senate concurrent resolution to correct an error in the Oklahoma bill was agreed to. In the house this afternoon Cannon announced that the tariff discussion would begin next week. TBS FI KB KS.UOKD- [ prohibitionists would see that it would be difficult to enforce the present law, and would be inclined to some more practical measure. The anti-prohibitionists would be greatly encouraged, and would see that they still had some law on {their side. The general feeling throughout the I state so far as can be ascertained is that ] this decision will make the enforcement j of prohibition much more difficult, and I lead many who are now prohibitionists to prefer some system by which the state I can keep the control of the liquor traffic in its own hands.

KaokaK People Bepress Themselves oa tbs Supreme Coart Baling. Special to Th* Hawk-Bys. Keokuk, May I.—An unusual interest has been revived by the decision of the United States supreme court in the “original package” replevin case of Gus Leisy & Co. vs. A. J. Hardin, in this city, where the case originated, and has at tracted attention all over the country. It is generally understood, from the printed newspaper reports of the decision,that the opinion of the court is that the right to import carries with it the right to sell in the original packages. A number of leading citizens have been interviewed regarding their opinion on the decision. Col. H. B Blood predicted that the decision would result in affecting public sentiment as did the Died Scott decision concerning the old fugitive slave law. Whether the legal opinion is a sound one or not, he thought that public sentiment would favor the prohibitory law. The immediate effect, in his opinion, would be injurious to the cause of prohibition. Wholesalers would flood the state with liquors, and greater vigilance would be required by the friends of temperance. ftsj. W. B Collins, a prominent law yer, who has been active in the fight against the illegal saloons in this city said the decision emphatically pronounced that there was no longer any such thing as slate rights or police control by the states. It is to the effect that the liquor traffic can be controlled by nothing except the internal revenue laws. “It is another Dred Scott decision,” affirmed the major. “But it will prove a boomerang. It will cut both ways. There will be a reaction of public sentiment, and the people will not stand such unwarranted interference with the police control .” Major Collins thought that eventually there would be a reversal of the decision. L. H. Ayer, who gave the information that caused the seizure of liquors in the celebrated case said the most remarkable feature of it was the complete disavowal, from a democratic standpoint, of the doctrine of state sovereignty, as once advocated by the democratic party. Chief Justice Fuller had gone further than had ever a republican, in asserting the right of the general government to regulate affairs of the Individual states. He thought the effect would be to increase of traffic will injuriously affect the public and it is not for congress to determine the measure a state may properly adopt as appropriate for the protection of the public morals, life or safety.' The court holds that it is within the province of the police power of the state to regulate or prohibit the sale of intoxicating liquors after they have been once imported '^to the state. Therefore we must conclude that it makes no difference by what means intoxicating liquors are brought into the state; after they are once delivered to the consignee within the state they can not be disposed of by him except in the manner provided by law,” _ DARED TO BB A DANIEL.. Members of tbs Salvation Army Farads in Bplts of Pones Orders. Des Moines, May I —The Des Moines camp of the Salvation Army were notified yesterday not to parade the streets with their horns and drums without a permit from the city authorities, but they disregarded the warning and marched out as usual in tne evening. The entire batal-lion was seized by the police and brought before Judge Eggleston, who released them upon their promise to appear for trial. The efforts of the police judge did not suffice to restrain the religious fervor of the prisoners, and for a time the court room possessed all the features of a Salvation Army prayer meeting. A COW HRS HYDROPHOBIA. It Was Bitten by a Mad Dos and Batts Its Brats* Oat. Special to The Hawk-Ey?. Osceola, lo., May I.—There is considerable excitement here over the antics of a mad dog. A fine cow belonging to to Dr. White was bitten several days ago by the dog but nothing was thought of it until yesterday when the animal showed signs of hydrophobia and butted its brains out against trees after biting a valuable Jersey heifer belonging to Dr. Ridgeway. The dog was captured and killed several miles southeast of town The city authorities have taken prompt steps to and ordered all dogs muzzled. HOKE I BLY BURNED.

He was opposed to a license law as a principle, policy or expedient. The decision would have the effect of increasing the sales of liquors in the state.

Very Little Chicago, May l.-May-day with its emonstration by organized labor in behalf of the eight-houre work day has come and gone and the predictions of riot and bloodshed and almost a universal strike has not been realized. Labor, ndeed, was in a great measure aus->eud; but those who dropped their tools - or the day did not do so for the purpose of taking up sticks and paving stones and indulging in riotous demonstrations, ’housands of them quit work for the day to march in the great parade; aud many more thousands made it a holiday, t was an orderly good natured crowd and an orderly parade, the marching line was about four miles long. It occupied two hours in passing a given point and the number of men in line was estimated aa about thirty thousand. The carpenters, who have been placed by the American Federation of Labor in the van of the eight-hour movement, lead the demonstration. They had about six thousand men, including three assemblies of Knights of Labor. They were hollowed by three thousand stonemasons 1 md bricklayers. Then came delegations from unions of printers, metal-workers and moulders. These were followed by dozen German Turner societies, forming a second division. Next came the furniture workers, cabinet-makers, carriage and wagon builders, cigar makers, cloak makers, boiler makers, rattan workers and harness makers Many of the trades escorted in their ranks gaudily decorated floats, on which were realistic representations of members of the craft pursuing their daily occupations. There were brick-layers building minature houses, boiler makers pounding with frightful noise, coopers working on huge casas, carpenters, stone cutters and many Simi* ar exhibitions. One of the features of the procession was the enormous number of banners and mottoes carried. Among the mottoes were the following: “Arbitration is Our Motto, Down with Monopoly “No carpenters, no houses;” ‘ E ght hours, and arbitration is the just de mand;” “We live by labor, not by war;” “When arbitration is compulsory, strikes will cease;” “The child of labor should not be on the bench or in the shop, but in the school;” ‘ Eight hours for work, eight hours for sleep and eight hours to do what we will.” The line of march was crowded with people who- cheered the marchers and mottoes. After parading through some of the principle streets of the Westside they marched over to the South Side and to Lake Front park, where they listened to addresses from several stands. THE EXERCISES AT LOUISVILLE. Louisville, May I.—In the May day parade to-day the number of workingmen in line was placed at from five to seven thousand. The weather was fine and there was alarge turnout of work ngmen’s families making the number assembled at National park for the exer rises over ten thousand. When the pro cession arrived at the park it was re viewed by President Gompers. After dinner a number of addresses were dowered. The most important was that by President Gompers Several local unions held meetings. Among these the carpenters alone took important action. They resolved to go on a strike to-morrow unless the master builders accede their demands that eight hours constitute a day's labor and thirty-five cents be the minimum pay. THE SITUATION AT MILWAUKEE. Milwaukee, May I.—In Milwaukee the demand of union carpenters for the adoption of the eight-hour system was not coupled with a demand for increased wages and as the men are willing to accept eight hours pay for eight hours work the movement has met with no strong opposition on the part of the em ployes although the contracting carpen ters’ association declined as a body to formally declare in favor of eight hours. Many individual members of the association have announced that they will conform to the wishes of the men. The indications are that if any striking is done it will be in cases where individual contractors insist on retaining the ten-hour system. CARPENTERS STRIKE AT PHILADELPHIA Philadelphia, May I.—Journeymen carpenters, roughly estimated at 3,900, went out on a strike to-day for eight hours. Six Master carpenters, employ ing two hundred hands, after holding out until noon, conceded to the demands of their men. Some of the employes say they Trill concede to the demands of the men as individuals, but will not recog niz9 the union. GOT NINE HOURS AND MORE PAY. Youngstown, O , May I.—-The paint era, plumbers, bricklayers and masons were conceded nine hours and a slight advance in wages to day. It is thought the carpenters will get the same to-mor row. There was no strike. NO DEMONSTRATIONS AT DBNVER. Denver Col., May I.—There was no labor demonstration here to day. The carpenters have been working only eight hours for several months and a strike is not anticipated. A QUIET DAY AT MINNEAPOLIS. Minneapolis, May I.—Labor day passed very quietly. There was a large mass-meeting this evening in the interest of the eight-hour movement The plumbers struck to day for nine hours work without reduction in wages. AT TORT WAYNE INDIANA. Fort Wayne, May I.-—All the car penters to-day struck to-day for a nine hour day and twenty-five cents an hour as minimum wages. An amicable settle ment is expected soon. QUARRYMEN GO OUT.

BUBIS B11BAB0UBLY, BUT BEAUTIFULLY BATTED BT BUBUMTOI’B BALLOTS. Vie Flint Hills Celebrate May Day by Winning the Odd Game of the Quincy Series—The Romance of the Red Hair — Nates. Special to Tm Hawk-Btb. Quincy, 111., May I.—When Varney Anderson arrived at the hotel from the grounds this evening with his panting but victorious aggregation of baseball experts, he immediately marshaled them in his room and, pulling off his left base ball pump, daintily fished from its interior a long curling single red hair. ‘There you are, boys,” exclaimed he gleefully. “I knew I could fetch ’em. That old Indian woman told me a red lair placed in one’s left shoe was always sure to bring good luck.” The boys were much interested, especially Tully. “Dad bum!” exclaimed he, “Leu make a habit of it. Where gh get the hair, Varn?” “Why, I—en”— But just then the supper bell rang and the blushing captain hurried down to the dining room. Whether are not Anderson’s red hair had anything to do with the visitors’ victory this deponent sayeth not. Be that as it may ; the great throng of blush ing, brave and boisterous Gam Cityites who come oift expecting to see the home )6ts again trounce the Flint Hill delega tion, were sorely disappointed. The visitors were on their metal and the way they fell on to Burk was a holy caution. They solved his cork-screws almost from the start and the home out-fielders were kept on the keen jump pulling down prospective singles, doubles, triples and home runs. When the score sheet had been figured up it proved that Burk had been “loud” for four doubles, three triples aid six singles Crowell, on the other hand, kept the home team down to eight consumptive hits and those in the last stages and badly scattered □ The fielding on both sides needed the application of a monkey wrench—or a stuffed club—as it was very loose. The heavy hitting of Katz, Breckenridge and Corbett of the visitors, did much to enliven the occasion. Prescott and Murray saved the home team from a battingless record Take the game as a whole, outside of the terrific slugging of the visitors, there was but little over which to arouse any considerable interest. The Burlington boys seem to be satisfied, however. The following is the OFFICIAL SCORE. _QUINCY. Peoria.............. rturlls*ton........ Evan a Ti! Ie......... Quincy........... Terre Haute.......
