Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - July 8, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. ESTABLISHED: JUNE, 1839.) BURLINGTON, IOWA, TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 8, 1800. (PRICE: 15 CENTS PER WEEK. A SILVER AGREEMENT. After Much Parleying a Substitute is Adopted by the Conference. The Senate Postpones Action on the Tariff Bill—-The Land Forfeiture Dill Under Consideration in the House-General Notes. leave the house without a quorum Ho suggested that the time would soon'eome when these requests must be denied After further debate the leaves granted.    “ On motion of Payson, of Illinois, the house went into committee of the whole for consideration of the senate bill to forfeit certain lands heretofore granted for the purpose of aiding the construction of railroads with the house therefore. DEATH IN THE STORM. Fargo, N. D., Badly Wrecked by a Cyclone. substitute Washington, July 7.—An agreement upon the silver question lias practically been reached. It will provide for the purchase of 4,500.000 ounces of silver per month, no bullion redemption certificates to be redeemable in coin and to be full legal tender. The full conference committee met and the report drawn up by Senator Sherman was adopte d. The report was presented to the senate immediately and read. After the iirst ineffectual conference last Thursday, the republican members decided an agreement could be more speedily and satisfactorily reached by a party consultation than a conference open to both political parties. Accordingly Senators Sherman and Jones and Representatives Geiger and Walker entered upon the task of drafting a compromise measure. They progressed so rapidly in this, that the conference substitute was completed in all essential points save one. and sent to the printer yesterday. The one point left open related to the amount of silver bullion to be purchased. Sherman, walker aud conger thought four million ounces monthly a fair compensation, but Jones declared for four and one-balf million ounces. Such was the state of affairs this morning, when overtures were again made to Jones to accept four and one quarter million ounces. The western senators wen* in receipt of telegrams urging them to hold out for the full amount of four and one-half million ounces and insist upon a speedy disposition of the bill. So the overtures were rejected, and when the proposition was made to take up the tariff bill in the senate this afternoon, the silver men manifested their power to check the flow of party legislation unless their demands were met. Soon afterwards the republican members of the conference was again called together:    the words •‘five hundred thousand'’ were added to four million ounces, contained in the printed conference substitute, and the agreement was completed. Senator Sherman spent a few minutes iii drafting a formal report to the senate arid then notified the democratic members—Senator Harris and Representative Bland—that the agreement was formally ratified, although the democratic members refused to sign tho report. The substitute provides that the secretary of the treasury shall purchase from time to time silver bullion to the aggregate amount <»f four million, live hundred thousand ounces, or so much thereof as may be offered, in each month, at the market price thereof, not exceeding one dollar tor throe hundred and twenty-five and one-hundredth grains of pure silver. The treasury notes issued in payment to be redeemable in coin and to be legal tender in payment of all debts, public and private, except where otherwise expressly stipulated in the contract, and to be receivable for customs, taxes, and all public dues. Upon demand of the holder of treasury notes the secretary shall under such regulations as lie may prescribe redeem such notes in gold or silver coin, at his discretion, it being the established policy of the United States to maintain the two metals on a parity with each other upon the present legal rate, or such ratio as may be provided by law. .The secretary of the treasury shall each month coin two million ounces of the silver bullion purchased into standard silver dollars until the first day of July, 1891, and after that time shall coin out of the silver bullion purchased as much as may be necessary to provide for the redemption of treasury notes. The present law is repealed. The last section provides for covering into the treasury the fund held for the redemption of the national bank circulation. THE SENATE. An Effort to Have the Tariff Hill Taken Up Defeated. Washington. July 7.—The conference I report on diplomatic and consular appro-1 priation Hill was agreed to. Mr. Morrill moved to take up the tariff hill, saying it could be then laid aside informally until the shipping bills were disposed of. The senate refused—yeas 20, nays 24. as follows: Yens—Aldrich, Allison. Davis, Dixon. Dolph. Edmunds, Farwell, Faulkner, Frye, Hale, Hawley, lliseock. Manderson, Morrill, I Matt Pugh. Guay, Sawyer, Sherman, Stockbridge—20. Nays—Allen, Bates, Berry, Carlisle, Cockrell, Gibson, Gorman, Hampton. Harris. Jones of Arkansas, Mitchell, Pasco, Payne, Plumb, Ransom, Reagan, Squire. Stewart. Teller. Turpie, Vest, Voorhees, Walthall—23. The senate bill to provide for a United States laud court, aud to provide for the settlement of private laud claims iii New Mexico. Wyoming, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and Colorado, was discussed until two o'clock, when it was laid aside without action, and the spipping bills resumed. Mr. Reagon spoke against the bills. At the close of his remarks the. election bill was received from the house and was (on motion of Frye) ordered to Iii* on the table until th*' return to Washington of the chairman of the committee on privileges and election (Hoar). Mr. Morgan opposed the shipping bills and Frye made some additional remarks in their support. Mr. Sherman presented the conference report on the silver bill. After it was read he gave notice lo* would call it up for action to-morrow morning. After an executive session the senate adjourned. Mr. Payson explained that the bill In its general provision proposed to forfeit and restore to the public domain all public lands wherever situated which had been granted in aid of construction, where the railroads had not been completed at this time. There had been thirty-seven railroads aided by acts of congress which were not completed within the time lied by congress. Twelve of these roads had been forfeited, comprising nearly fifty million acres. That left twent-tive roads which had not been acted upon. Nine had been fully completed. That left sixteen roads now uncompleted and the house substitute recommended the forfeiture of all lands lying opposite such portions of roads as were not now constructed. It was his opinion that no bill of broader character than tins could ever pass the senate and become a law. A careful estimate was to the effect that the bill would restore seven million five hundred acres to the public domain. Mr. Stone, of Missouri, took the position that a forfeiture should be made of all lands which had not been earned by the railroads at the time fixed in granting the acts for completion of the roads. The Northern Pacific road, he said, was most vitally interested in this measure. lie quoted from speeches by Payson in the twenty-eighth and twenty-nineth congresses upholding the right of congress to forfeit lands unearned at the time fixed by the granting acts, and attacked that gentleman for what he declared was a change of front. The speaker (Reed) in the forty-seventh congress, when chairman of the judiciary committee, reported that congress had no power to forfeit an acre of Northern Pacific grant. Since then Thomas B. Reed had been recognized as the friend and zealous champion of that great arrogant and corrupt corporation on the floor of tin* house. This corporation knew its friends and it stood by them most loyally. It was an open secret that no influence had been more potential in the organization of the house than that exerted by the Northern Pacific railroad. The passage of the bill under consideration was a matter of Iirst importance to this corporation. The-bill would pass. The bosses must insist upon it: they could not do otherwise, aud the rest of the poor fellows on the other side of the aisles had their hands tied and their lips silent, except when the parliamentary boss untied one, that they might clap their applause to his utterances. His majestic slaves must follow blindly wherever they were led. But beyond these men and beyond their parliamentary autocrat was a great constituency—the people of the United States— and to that forum would be carried this cause, which the majority stood ready to betray. Mr. Lacey, of Iowa, favored tin* pending bill. Pending further debate the commute* rose and the house adjourned. A SENSATIONAL REPORT. Numerous Buildings Demolished and a Number of Lives Lost—l’assenger Trains Blown from the Track ami Travelers Injured. St. Paul, Minn., July 7.—The Wah-petone, North Dakota, correspondent of the Pioneer Press telegraphs as follows: A straight wind from the northwest struck Fargo at 2:30 a. rn. Great damage w as done to the city. Electric light towers were blown down, whole blocks unroofed Yerxas wigwam, McGill A Co.’s new ware house, the opera house the Republican office, the Veeney block, the Battlement or the bank of North Dakota, the Chapin block, the exchange hotel,the Continental block and Manitoba freight house were unroofed and the Milwaukee depot blown down. A dozen small houses unroofed, almost every plate glass window on front street and Broadway were broken; the Jay Coon hotel, and Grand Pacific at Moorehead were unrjof-ed; the Milwaukee depot was blown down. The residence of the late Captain McCarthy, corner of Fifth arid Ninth, was struck by the storm and demolished. Seven children were instantly killed and Mrs. McCarthy is not expected to live. Two unknown tramps in a box ear were killed. Passenger train No. I on the Northern Pacific, going west, has just pulled out of the yards and stopped at the Milwaukee crossing. The train was made up of three baggage cars, nine coaches and sleepers, a party of Chicago and Northwestern officials in a private car and Superintendent McCabe’s car. All of the coaches and the tender were blown from the track, but no lives were lost, and no one was fatally hurt. The lights had been put out, so there was no fire, nor steam. Superintendent McCabe and the conductor, brakeman and porters acted very coolly and calmed the frightened pessengers, who were sent back to the city in special coaches. Warren G.Purdy, vice president of the Rock Island railroad. and family, accompanied by Col. R. S. Thompson and wife were iii Purdy’s private car, but none we're seriously burt. Col. Thompson and wife were slightly hurt. Fred Purdy was slightly cut, but the others were unhurt. The Northern Pacific through north bound passenger train was blown from the track and many of the passengers severely but not dangerously injured. The Northern Pacific repair and machine shops and the freight depots of the Great Northern and Milwaukee roads were demolished; several churches were badly wrecked and numberless other buildings were more or less damaged. The total damage iii the city is about $75,000. tower indicated 90 degrees. In the streets the temperature ran from 93 to 95 degrees. A number of prostrations have occurred. Hot Weather at Des Moines. [Special to The Hawk-Eve.l Des Moines, .Inly 7.—The present hot weather exceeds in severity that of two weeks ago. The signal service thermometer recorded IOO degrees yesterday, to-day 101. This is 5 degrees higher than on tile hottest June day. Some thermometers under an awning reached I IO degrees. Fears are entertained that the hot, scorching wind blowing from tile south will burn up the corn if it continues for a day longer. Special Weather Bulletin. Washington, July 7.—A warm wave is central to-day in the Central Mississippi valley. The following maximum temperature was reported to-day: Iowa, 102 degrees; Illinois. 94 to 98; in the Ohio valley, 94 to 98; iii the lower Mississippi valley, 90. Warmer weather will prevail in all districts east of the Mississippi river Tuesday and continuing warm weather on Wednesday. The temperature will probably fall ten degrees in the upper Mississippi valley Thursday. The Census Returns Do Not Come Up to Expectations. Tile British Minister Denies that Behring Sea Negotiations Have Been Broken OII. Washington, July 7.—A sensational article printed to-day to the effect that the British minister, Sir Julian Paunce-fote, had broken off the Behring Sea negotiations with Mr. Blaine and notified him that if the American revenue cutters seized any sealers carrying the American (lag British war ships would recover them by force if necessary. Stories of this kind have appeared frequently during the past year and this particular story was this evening officially denied by Sir “Julian Pauncefote. He said: ‘•I have made no communication of the kind to Mr. Blaine. There is no doubt our vessels in the northern Pacific ocean are there to protect the British flag and our sealers, but I have not broken off negotiations and there is no reason to expect a disturbance of the friendly relations existing between the two governments. Mr. Blaine has left for Bar Harbor for the benefit of his health and I am about to go to Manchester-by-the-sea and shall there continue negotiations with Mr. Blaine. Sir Julian was not aware of what instructions had been given the British fleet, but thought it very unlikely that during the friendly negotiations anything would occur on one side or the other likely to provoke any disturbance. “The great point is," he added. “the negotiations have not, been broken off, and that these alarmist reports, which really do much harm, arc not correct.”_ IOWA”POSTMASTERS. Changes Ma«le in Iowa for the Week Lulling July .5. Washington, July 7.—The following postoffice changes werq made in Iowa during the week ending July 5, 1890: Established—Burdette, Franklin county. II asci I Boddy, postmaster:    Vogt, Plymouth county. Lafayette Gardner, post master._ GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS. A Damaging Storm in New Orleans. New Orleans, July 9.—A storm of considerable power this forenoon did quite an amount of damage to buildings, telegraph and telephone poles and trees in this city. Telephone wires were wrecked to such an extent that days will be required to get them in order. Then were the liveliest kind of times in tile custom house, and the interior of tin staunch old building now presents a very deplorable appearance. It is literally drowned out. Workmen are building a new observatory on the roof of tile old building while another gung is repair ing the roof. The water poured in through the openings in the roof like a mincature Niagara. The water rose to fully six inches deep in the corridors on tile second floor and I hen soaked through flooding the postoffice and ruining the walls. An unusually heavy gust of wind struck the scaffolding around the new observatory. It fell with a crash through the heavy plate-glass that gives light to Marble hall. Several gentlemen narrowly escaped boing struck by the failing glass. The damage foots up to many thousands of dollars. Tile Extent of the Storm. . St. Pall, July 7.—The Pioneer Press has dispatches from many points in the vicinity of Fargo, telling of farm houses, bams and out buildings in all directions being destroyed. Trees along the river banks for miles from Fargo were broken off or shorn of their foliage. Wheat as a rule, escaped. Casselton reports bridges in all directions washed out or blown away. At Mableton nearly every building in the town sustained some damage and a number of people were slightly hurt. Despatches from Wheatland. Durbin, Ayer and some other places tell the same story. No additional fatalities are reported, lint many points are to be heard from yet, the wires being badly demoralized. THE HOUSE. Tile Bill Forfeiting Certain Railroad Lands Under Consideration. Washing;ton, July 7.—In the house to-day Bland, rising to a question of privilege, had read a dispatch stating he was absent from the silver conference meeting Saturday. Ile also had a note from Chairman Conger stating then* would be no meeting Saturday. He did not desire to be advertised as not attending to bis duty when he was notified that his presence was not required. Mr. Dorsey, of Nebraska, moved to suspend the rules and pass the concurrent resolution requesting the president to return to the house the bill extending the time of payment to the purchasers of land of the Omaha tribe of Indians in Nebraska. Mr. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, made the point of order that it was not in the power of the house under the constitution to recall a bill which had been passed aud sent to the president. The speaker declined to pass upon the constitutional question: that was for the house to decide. Mr. Dorsey said the only object tor asking the return of the bill was to correct an error. Mr. Rogers, of Arkansas, said lie understood it was feared the president would veto the bill unless it were changed in a certain particular. The speaker said similar action had been taken by both houses so many times that it would be a singular thing for any one to deny the right now. Ile overruled the point of order. Mr. Outhwaite, of Ohio, demanded a second count and the democrats refusing to vote, left the house without a quorum. Dorsey thereupon withdrew his motion. The speaker submitted a dozen requests for leaves of absence and Dunned, of Minnesota, asked if these would not Minority Report on the Anti-Food Adulteration Bill. Washington. July 7.—Senator Bate from the committee on agricultural and foresty, to-day submitted the report of the minority on the bill reported some weeks ago to prevent the adulteration of food and drugs. The report states the minority recognizes the propriety of “every tub standing on its own bottom, whether it contains pure drugs or compound drugs, pure lard or compound lard, but cannot assent to congress “knocking the bottom*’ out of one article of food to help another, or one drug for th*' benefit of another, or of compound lard iii order to drive hog lard out of competition. It is believed, says the minority, such would be the im itable result of the passage of this bill.

Serious Accident oil tile Illinois Central at Manteno, Illinois. Kankakee, 111., July 7.—The most serious wreck that the Illinois Central lias experienced for several years occurred at Manteno this morning at 8 o'clock. A special excursion train of fourteen cars carrying six hundred members of Knights[of Pythias and ladies’to the biennial supreme lodge at Milwaukee, was derailed at a switch while entering the village at a speed of thirty-five miles an hour. The four forward cars kept the main track and the remainder of the train took the siding. When the train broke the chair car occupied by the East St. Louis contingent turned upon its side and the occupants, numbering fifty, were hurled with great violence against the side of the car. The sudden stopping of the train prevented a long list of casualties. J. IL Crowder of Waeeo, Texas, aged thirty, was standing on the platform of one of the ears and was killed. The wounded passengers were all in the East, St. Louis car. They ar** William J. Born, Miss Millie Dooley, T. W. Teague, Clipt. W. IL Sandusky, Central City, and Charles Lantz, Shelbyville, Illinois. Tile excursionists were transferred to a special train and sent on to their destination. THE LOTTERY BILL VETOED. Governor Nicholls’ Strong Protest Against Louisiana's Disgrace. Baton Rogue, La., July 7.—Governor Nicholls this afternoop returned to the house without approval, the now famous lottery bill. In his veto message, which is of great length, he refers to his message at the. opening of the session anticipating this legislation and urging its instant rejection for various reasons then set forth. In the present message hi* says that his views as heretofore expressed not only remain unchanged, but his convictions have deepened and strengthened. * * * The persistent efforts which have been made to represent Louisiana as a pauper, unable by and through lier own legitimate resources to sustain and carry out the duties of lier statehood, are utterly without foundation.. * * * The state and different parishes in this state were never since the late war in better condition than they are to-day, moving forward to an era of assured prosperity. Suddenly a dark shadow of deep disgrace is thrown across her pathway and tin honor of Louisiana, maintained in the past on the field and in the council by patriotism and valor and by the sacrifice? of her sons, living and dead, is to hi tarnished forever. Her position among her sister states is to be tested, not by what she has been, but as a degenerated partner in a gambling corporation designed, organized and to be carried out, not for her good or her advancement. but as before, said. for the personal and selfish interests of a handful of men, many of them connected with the darkest day? of the reconstruction period. I repeat it is for them and to them we are selling our birth-right for a mess of pottage Who are the six unnamed men who an to join with a seventh and known one to constitute the new [lottery company? How comes it we are not informed as to their identity and enabled to know their antecedents and fix their records? There is a world of meaning in that silence. In the most trifling affair of life men seek to know with whom they deal. How comes it that in a matter of this importance tin; general assembly has been willing up to now to close its eyes and move blindly in the dark? I call upon it to pause before it takes finally that step that plunges the state into untold trouble. Is there nothing significant in the exact two-thirds vote by which this bill has passed? * * * say to this general assembly in all earn estness that should this measure be pas sod we will enter upon a period of strifi such as has never before been seen in Louisiana and should this conte in plated corporation ever be formed upon an era of corruption and degradation, beside which the era of reconstruction will appear as one o honor and happiness. And let me here say to you that should this measure be adopted and carried out, in my opinion no good will ever come of the* money we receive as a price of our honor and our liberty. Extravagance*, profligacy, and corruption will assuredly follow it receipt as night follows the day. believe at, the end of twenty five years we will neit only fine! eonstitu tional bonds outstanding to the utmo limit of the funding law, but I believe there will be in addition an immense in terest-bearing debt, which by that time will be acknowledged and provided for as to the* interest, but not as to the cap ital. And that in those twenty-fiv ye*urs a vast amount, of int**r«*st will have been paid out unnecessarily, improperly and illegally. In whose* hands those intere*st-beuring bonds will be* found time? will develop.

The canvas is not completed and the ‘stimates to-day are the first which have been made. A NEW COLLEGE. Cornerstone Laid at Sioux City With Impressive Ceremonies. Sioux City, July 7.—The corner stone of the new college of technology for the University of the Northwest was laid Friday morning at IO o’clock, with imposing ceremonies.

July 7.—The weekly bulletin of Iowa crop bureau, issued Saturday says:    “Tile temperature of the central station during the first half of the week was 19 degrees above normal: the last half was 8 below, leaving a total excess of 11 degrees. This was about the average for tin* state. The amount of rain for the week was above the average.

In the central and eastern counties of the southern half of the state a drought of some severity prevails, little or no rain having fallen during the past week, and the amount for the season being deficient. In about three-fourths of the state, however, then is no suffering from lack of moisture, Except within the limited area of drouth all crops are in a promising condition Corn is doing remarkably well everywhere, even in the dryest sections.
