Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - July 3, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. ESTABLISHED: JUNE, 1839.) IBE ELECTION BILL PASSES. The Democratic Members Fight the Measure Tooth and Toe Nail. Turlmlent Session of the House—The Vote Was Taken Amidst Great Con. fusion and Resulted Yeas IRS, Nays 149—The Senate.BURLINGTON, IOWA, THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 3. 1890- Washington, July 2.—The house resumed the consideration of the federal election bill, the pending question being on the amendment offered by Mr. Tucker, of Virginia, requiring judges of the circuit court (associated with the district judge) to pass upon applications for supervisors of election. Mr. Frank, of Missouri, said he was in favor of the bill so far as its scope was to extend in the operation of supervisory system. He was opposed to it so far it proposed to obtain federal control of elections. But he was opposed to the amendment because it sought to weaken the law already on the statute book. Mr. Boutel Ie, of Maine, said that the naked question presented was whether these people who were by the constitution and laws entitled to the right of suffrage, should be protected in the exercise of that right. Mr. Randall offered an amendment making it the duty of the circuit judges of each circuit, within one month after the passage of tin* act, to open a special term of the circuit court and said judges shall appoint for each judicial district three discreet persons of good character and standing who shall be known as United States juror commissioners. It shall bf the duty of such commissioners rn organize as a board, and from time to time make from qualified voters, a list of persons who under the laws of the United States and state shall he eligible for jury duty without respect to race or color. Hereafter all panels for jurors shall be drawn by the board in the presence of district or circuit judges. Mr. Springer opposed the amendment, declaring its purpose was to pack the juries of the country with republican partisans. Mr. Taylor, of Tennessee, made a vigorous speech in which he said the duty of be hour was for the representatives to nvoke by law the strong right arm of federal power, and wield it until every nan in every’city, town, hamlet and preset ineverv state north, south, eastand west should be free and protected to the fullest extent in the enjoyment of all privileges, immunities and franchises by the constitution guaranteed to every American citizen. [Republican applause. | Mr. Rowell's amendment was agreed to—146 to 143. A good deal of confusion followed the announcement, amid which several democrats were hoard demanding the yeas and nays. The demand however, was not heard by the speaker. When Outhwaite called attention to the demand the speaker expressed the opinion that it came too late. Outhwaite himself requested all favoring the demand to rise. The entire democratic sid* rose but the speaker ignored it. Ho stated, however. if there were no objection the yeas and nays might be ordered. There being no objection the speaker directed lite clerk to call the roll, amid a volley of protests from the democrats at being granted as a favor what they demanded as a right. The Rowell amendment was adopted—yeas 150, nays 144. Mr. Hemphill offered an amendment to section 32. the purpose of which amendment was. he said, to eliminate the proviso which empowered the supervisors to use the army and navy. Mr. McKinley said the amendment would take from the president, all th*' power he hail to enforce judicial processes. The bill would be destroyed if the government was deprived of the right to use federal power to execute judicial processes under the proposed measure. This was a bill looking to honest \ot**s and a fair count in every part and section of the American republic. [Republican applause.] That was all there was of th*1 bill. No honest man could object to it. It was said that the bill would be expensive—would cost millions. That statement assumed that the three hundred and thirty districts of the country would invoke the operation of the law; and there was not a man who did not know that not one hundred districts would invoke its operation. They could diminish tho cost of the administration of the few in the ratio in which they diminished fradulent voting, false counting, ballot box stuffing and the sup-pression of votes. (Republican applause, j It would cost nothing if there was no need for it. This question would not rest until justice was done. It was the supreme duty of the nation to enforce the constitution laws of the United States. Let the gentlemen on the other side obey them as th*' republicans obeyed them for In- told them the people of the north would not permit two votes in tin* sonth to count as many as live \otes in the north. [Republican applause. | Mr. McMillin, of Tennesee. said th*' republicans might, like madmen, grasp the pillars of th*1 constitution and pull down the edifice, but like Samson they, would perish in th*' wreck, if he could register a wish in heaven he would ask not for the extension of th** boundaries or multiplication of territory; not for flowing fivers and fertile fields, but that til*' man who laid violent hands upon th*' constitution might drop dead as did th*' sacri-hgious Jew who laid impious hands upon the ark of the covenant. [Democrats applause. | Mr. Perkins,of Kansas.and LaFollotto, of Wisconsin, made eloquent pleas in favor of th*' bill. The hour of two °clock having arrived, the speaker declared the previous question ordered on the bill and the pending amendment. Mr. Springer moved to lay tho hill On lh** table; lost—yeas. Ifs; nays, 15b. Mr. Springer changed his vote from the affirmative to tile negative in order to move a reconsideration. This, upon motion of Rowell, was laid upon the table— yeas lr,a. nays Ifs. The vote then Ocurred on Hemphill's amendment (relative to the use of troops at the polls) atul it was rejected—yeas 145, nays 15t>. Mr. Springer (having voted in .the negative for th*' purpose) moved to reconsider; the motion was tabled. Mr; Springer moved to lay th*' bill uPon the table, stating that his former motion was to table the bill and th*' pending amendment. The speaker ruled the motion out of order. Mr. Springer appealed, and the appeal was laid on the table—yeas 158, nays 14*3. Mr. Springer (having voted in the afformative) moved a reconsideration. Mr. Grosvenor made the point of order that this was a dilatory motion, a point which was sustained by the speaker, Mr. Springer appealed, but the speaker dec I nm,i to entertain the appeal. Mr. Springer protested that this was he first time in the history of th** government that a motion to reconsider was n9t recognized, but his voice was drowned 'n calls for the regular order from the republican side. Mr. Springer moved to adjourn: lost -yeas HT. nays 157. The bill was ordered engrossed and reJd a third time—yeas 154. nays 148. Mr. Hemphill, of South Carolina, oved to reccoimnend the bill; lost— I    nays    * Messrs. Coleman and .“'back voted with the democrats in e affirmative. Mr. Springer [having °tea in the negative] moved a reconsideration; tabled. Mrouthwait moved an adjournment Wato s*M*ak<,r    out    of order as springer demanded the reading of c engrossed bill. But the speaker was LXred for this demand, the bill hav-8 been engrossed in advance, and there was a burst of applause from the republican side when the clerk began reading I wo hours were consumed in the reading. The question then recurred on the passage of the bill. As the call was in progress the greatest interest was manifested n both sloes of the house. As Coleman, o. Louisiana, cast his vote with the democrats he was:greeted with applause from that side of the house and the applause was reinforced with cheers, when Lehlback, of New Jersey, also cast his vote against the measure The republicans retaliated ii, J rn A8 the, southei n republicans, Honk, Taylor of Tennesse, Waddill Mudd, of Maryland, and Wilson of tueky, recorded votes in the affirmative cheer after cheer was given. I he bill passed—yeas 155, nays 149. I he house then, at 9:25, adjourned. (PRICE: 15 CENTS PER WEEK WHO MURDERED JOHNS? The Notorious Hardin County Trag-edy Again Revived. A History of the Case—Serious Charges Made — Did Buckshot or Poison Cause the Death?—Theories Advanced—State News. THE SENATE. American Merchant Marine Bills Con-sidered—The Legislative Appropriation Bill. ^WAsmKTON, July 2.—In the senate Mr. Plumb, from the committee on public lands, reported the senate bill to provide for the delivery of land patents to their rightful owners, and asked for its immediate consideration, After some discussion the bill passed. It directs the secretary of the interior to send to the recorder of deeds in each city in which lands so patented lie the lists of land patents in that county that have been in the general land office uncalled for for twelve months Mr. Hiscock called up ins motion to reconsider the vote by which the senate yesterday refused to recede from the amendments to the legislative appropriation bill. The motion was agree to. and after debat** the senate receded from tho amendments. The bill now goes to the president. The senate proceeded to the consideration of the two senate bills reported from the committee on conimen e to place the America merchant marine engaged in foreign trad**, upon an equality with that of other nations; and to provide for ocean mail service between the United States and foreign ports and to promote commerce. Mr. Fry** said the first, bill was a bounty on tonnage and the second was known as the postal subsidy bill, lie declared unless congress did something to aid American ships, and that speedily, there would soon not be a single steamship line traversing th** oceans carrying the American flag—not one. He was not going to discuss the tariff in connection with th*1 hills. There (referring to the American carrying trade) was the dead body. Ile wanted to know whether it was worth while to resurrect it and bring life into it. He could not understand the innermost thoughts and feelings of th** American citizen who could listen to a statement of facts about th** foreign carrying trade and not feel an impulse to go back once more on the ocean, where the I nited States stood in such proud conspicuousness thirty years ago. The American carrying trade was dead for want of protection. It, was th** only great American industry of which the same could b** said. The people of the I nited States had paid titty millions a year to keep alive the sugar growing industry of the United States. Six millions a year would revive th*; dead body of the American merchant marine and keep it on the ocean. Mr. Vest addressed the senate in opposition to th** subsidy bills. Tho foreign carrying power was languishing and almost dead. But so was th** cattle trade, and yet, if he were to propose a subsidy for the cattle trade proposition would bt attacked as the most monstrous on** ever heard. II** went on to speak of tin* Pan-American congress as "a chestnut,'’ “a back number." It was half made up when the Harrison administration cam* into existence and the restless and ambitious spirit of th** present secretary of stat*; seized upon it and concluded to parade it before th** country a> a great and phenomenal diplomatic victory. Th** leaders of til** republican party had always advocated the necessity of doing away with foreign conn. Tee. But a sudden and marvelou change had come. The senator from Maine wanted to give subsidies to vesol: in foreign trade so as to bring about in creased trade, not only in South American states, but also with all European countries and the world at large. Th* effect. Vest said, of subsidizing any particular line was to discourage all other Vest yielded the’floor without concluding his speech, and Fry** said h** hoped to have th*; senate aet to-morrow on both bills, as h<* intended to call up th* river and harbor bill Monday. After an executive session, the senate adjourned. the penitentiary. He appeal? I to the supreme court and was held under SI,SCO appeal bonds. He got bonds and skipped the country. He was seen by the police here this morning and closely pursued, but finally escaped and is still in hiding. HE Desperate ‘PIED” THE OFFICE. [Chicago Daily News Special.] Mason City, Iowa, July I.—The notorious Hardin county tragedy of seven years ago, which resulted in the death of five men and an endless amount of litigation, has not yet been settled, and facts which have been brought to light during the last two weeks have not only revived interest in the matter, but this interest has assumed tangible shape and it is understood that detectives have been set to work to unravel the mystery. Henry Johns, who was killed in Hardin county five years ago, was an Englishman,' well educated, and his ambition was to educate his boys. ll** had urged and tried in every way to have them attend school and lit themselves for higher stations, offering to send them to Europe and elsewhere to accomplish this purpose, but to no avail. He became furious and went to Marshalltown and made his will, leaving everything but what would lawfully go to his wife to found a public institution. and soon after made this fact known to his family in an indiscreet lit of passion. In less than a month's tim** he was murdered. He was a relative of til** Rains-bargers and was very wealthy, his estate being something over £200,000. It will be remembered that In* was shot at anil slightly wounded while going home one night and that lie did not die for two weeks or more, and then was reported to have died from the shock, though the doctor who attended him had said the wound in th*; arm was sligh* and pronounced him as even past needing attention, when In* suddenly died. Charges were made, and many believers were found that the hand that failed to kill by a charge of buckshot administered poison. The real motive for taking his life lias greatly puzzled the public. On th** one side the Rainsbargers charge that he was killed by their enemies in order to break up a strong moneyed alliance which they had with him. But it was well known that he held on to his money bag tightly and would in no wise aid them. It is known, too, that in th** hands of his heirs the estate would be more easily placed at their disposal. So this theory was soon abandoned. The enemies of the Rainsbargers charged that with Johns out of the way, the estate would, in whole or a arg** part, come to the friend? and aid them in extricating Frank and Nat** from the penitentiary and aid tin* others in their nefarious work. In support of this last theory comes a prominent attorney of Marshalltown, who gives the will history and a motive that has never before been made public. The will has never been brought to light. Who killed Henry Johns, and the motive, will, therefore, be a matter of renewed interest and speculation. That tins*' facts have not long been developed is accounted for by the fai t that professional secrecy has but recently been removed from the lips of the attorney referred to above. HIS BRAINS DASHED OUT. A Distressing Accident in a Davenport Foundry. [Special to th*' Hawk-Eye.] Davenport. la.. July 2.—This morning a most distressing accident occurred in the machine shop of the Davenport Foundry and Machine Go. The victim was Emil Sindt. an apprentice, aged seventeen year's. II** was working at th** plainer and took hold of th** chain that dangled from a ponderous iron tackle block swung over his head, and used in hoisting heavy castings to the machines fur dressing, intending to move th** block to one sid*' by pulling it. along its overhead traek. The nuts that held its bolt in place had become loosened and jus then they dropped off and the whol mass, four or live hundred pounds in weight, fell upon his head a distance of twelve feet. The boy's brains wen dashed out and .-pattered over the planer and the blood poured from his mouth and nos** in streams. He was dead at the instant. Actions of un Ex-Editor ut Dunlap. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Dunlap, July 2.—Some time ago E. E. Nichols, of Dow City, started a paper in Dunlap, by the name of the Spectator, in connection with his home paper. It ran very smoothly until about the fourth issue, when he sold out both offices to one C. E. McIntosh, of Dunlap. Ile then forbad*; McIntosh taking possession of the Dow City office and finally caused McIntosh’s arrest. II** tried to gain possession of the Dunlap office, but failing. became desperate. Last night Nichols arrived from Dow City broke into the Spectator office, nailed fast the dooYs and declared himself in possession. Type was set and in the form for Wednesday's issue and he proceeded to run it in the shape of a “pi” office. All th** type were scattered on the floor and shoveled into a large heap, then he began demolishing the furniture. The city marshal took possession of Mr. Nichols, a warrant was issued and lie gave bonds for his apperanee. The security was in the shape of a draft for £250 and now several of his creditors have put an attachment on th** draft. WILD WITH HUNGER. Locked Out Cloakmakers in York Slowly Starving. New th** insertion into their platform of a resolution submitting to th** people attain the question of I icon si; or prohibition. The resolution was adopted after a stormy debate—145 to OO. Following this. Mr. Thompson, of Bid fast. was nominated for governor by acclamation. May Crawfish im the Joint Bate Schedule. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Des Moines, July 2.—The railroad commissioners to-day made th** switching charges which they had heretofore fixed in separate cases, a general order to apply to all railroads. They also appear to be getting ready to break down on their joint rate schedule recently promulgated. They yesterday wrote to bairamn Faithorn, of tit** western freight association, asking him to suggest to them a scheme for a division of joint charges between th** interested carriers upon the basis of a percentage plan like that promulgated. They seem to be afraid that as th** schedule as at present fixed will, be held unfair in many particulars and fear that injunction proceedings will be instituted generally throughout the state. Awful Scene*} of Privation—Men With Families Have Nothing With Which to Buy Food or Satisfy Their Landlords. New York July 2.—Men so weakened by hunger that they stagger when they walk and famished children crying in vain for something to eat ar** scenes to be seen among the locked out cloakmakers. Not a few of th** 2,000 men and women and their families have for nearly two weeks lived on only bread and water. Men with gaunt, haggard faces and eyes wild with hunger are to be seen by the scores around the headquarters of the union on Forsyth** street. Girls who were once pretty mingle with them at times, hut hunger and privation have driven all traces of beauty from their faces. Since last Saturday in all £583.OO has been received to be distributed among th** distressed workmen, and when it is taken into consideration that this was divided among 2.000 persons, th** majority of whom have largo families. it can well ho imagined how much privation must exist. A more forbearing, uncomplaining set of people is seldom seen. Scarcely over can a word of complaint be heard from them except in a quiet way to the leaders in the lockout. Rent day has arrived, and the anxiety lias been added to by th** expected arrival of th** landlords' agents to collect the rent. THE DOUBLE SITE ACCEPTED. Th** Seventh Congressional Republican*.

July 2.—Th*; world's fair national commission this afternoon formally accepted the joint sit**, consisting of th** Lake Front anil Jackson Park as the location for the Columbian exposition, by a vote of TS to ll. This conclusion was not reached without much discussion, and, in fad. when th** question came up th** opponents of this location, as offered by the local board of directors. seemed to number about as many as th** advocates of it. Various resolutions ami amendments of individual commissioners, were offered: lint, after the commissioners had listened to a detailed ex placation by the directors, a vote wa: taken on til** proposition to accept th* sites a- tendered, with th** result abovi given.

Washington, July 2.—President Harrison to-day sent to congress a message transmitting a letter from Secretary Blain** upon th*- reports adopted by the pan-American conference respecting postal and cable communications between the United States and th** ports of Central and South America. In his letter the secretary says in part:    The representatives in various countries commend the co-operation of various countries for the establishment of one or more subsidized steamship lines of th** first class between San Francisco and Valparaiso and intermediate ports; each country to pay its share proportionate to population. Between th*' United Stat s and the ports of Brazil, Uruguay and Argentin*' Republic it is recommended a fast subsidized line be established and an auxiliary slower line between the United States and Brazil, to stop at minor points. Til*' president, in his message, says he cannot too strongly urge upon congress the necessity of giving this subject immediate and favorable consideration and making adequate appropriations to carry the recommendation into effect: and in this connection calls attention to what was said on the subject in his an mull message.

A Sail Death from Sunstroke—The Census —Other Items of News. Man* Hester, Iowa, July 2.—The intensely heated spoil of th** last week has advanced th** corn rapidly, and at the sam*; time mad** mourning and sorrow in th** land. Death came with th*; growth. Three men in this county died by sunstroke. In on*; instance th** surrounding circumstances make’it peculiarly sad. The dead man was th** head of a family: they were Germans. Only a week ago they had arrived in this new land far from the fatherland. Tin* father went f*»rtIi to plow the corn—his first day's work in America and his last on earth, for in an hour In* was dead. Tho hop**s of a family withered by the fierce rays of th** sun, and tin* happiness of a home blasted. In spit** of tin* heat th** census Frankenstein has continued upon his work to putting impertinent questions in a leading form to the sovereigns of this station and they have replied in a maimer satisfactory to themselves, if not likely to meet the requirements of exact truth. The enumerator here refuses to divulge the population of our city, but it will not bo far from 2,375. This is only 600 short of tin* usual claim and hence does not implicate us in very heavy mun-ehausinism. The gain in five years will be at least fifty, which shows that we are steady and even tempered. Unlike other large cities of th** state, as Dubuque, Des Moines, et, a1., we are not burning that the enumerator overlooked 4,000 or 5.000 stragglers, though we believe lie did not visit the hotel registers every day and make a copy of the returns, and he has entirely overlooked a populous addition—th** cemetery. But we do not bank on our dead for living purposes. One of our early and leading farmers. Mr. Albert Thompson, died suddenly last week. II** was a man of considerable learning, of much native ability and good business qualities. From a little he had built up a large farm of nearly a thousand acres, well stocked and thoroughly cared for. He was oho of those men whose presence give the lie to th** political elap-trap that our farmers are all standing candidates for tilt* poorhouse. The city fathers in their capacity and official dignity as the board of health hav<; fulminated their decree of “git” to the slaughter-houses within the corporal** limits. Their stench—the afer* mentioned slaughter-houses—is sickening to ti. * olfactories of our peopl their ugliness is a damage to our eye their filthiness is a quietus upon our desire for the juicy porter-house or delicious mutton chop; hence, avaunt ye, from our sight, swell and thought! The action of the republican convell Hon both in its promulgation of articles of faith and opinion and in its choice of candidates receives the hearty endorsement of all republicans here, The gap in the ranks are closed, the solid front presented to the foe hades no good to them, but only to the state. There will he no more accidents in Iowa. Val* Bois! Th** shades of another eternity of dispare ar** fast settling down a shroud upon democracy! The Fourth is going to ho observed here with Quarter modesty. No glowing orators, no reading declarations of independence, no brass bands, no drunks. We simply thank God and the fathers for our liberties and fish and enjoy bountious nature. The children will shoot firecrackers and yell.    Thor. City and Northern Will Not Build the Line. Sioux City, la.. July 2.—In an interview Gen.
