Hut something •us shaken him up at a great rate, and Lr the past four days lie has been jostling around New York pulling the lits of the importers viciously. A prompt democratic manager who keeps a Harp lookout for such proceedings, and who always bobs up when democratic boodle is being put out. was in at Chamberlain's last night. After cursing the McKinley bill for raising the tariff on the champagne he was drinking he gave some hints of Flowers’ success at money r slag. The net result of this cunning . confession was that three hundred thousand dollars had been raised. When it vvas suggested that this was a good deal of money for the importers to put up, he replied, with a knowing wink, uuu Le g c'-ed “they'd get it back from the people on the other side. It's a whole lot cheaper,” be added "to pay our campaign expenses than to pay these re-I publican taritT duties.” And he is no doubt right about that. When this con-; venation at Chamberlain’s got to I: General Clarkson's ears he remarked [ that he did not need such evidence to prove that a big democratic corruption fund had suddenly come into existence. “I don't know who raised it ' or from whom t was obtained,” eoutiu-! ued Mr. Clarkson, “but I have heard it a dozen times within the last twenty-four hours. As things stand to-day the democrats art- beat and they know it. Their only hope is to sail right in with their money. There is not a large pur-I chasable vote outside of New York city. I On the contrary it is wonderfully small. But the majorities either way are also smaGer in many congressional districts. Forty-two men sat in the last congress ca majorities of less than one thousand in a total vote per district ut about thirty-tive thousand, so that bribery can affect the result materially if & party is willing to employ that kind of a method. Th*- democrats are now putting out a great deal of money. They are shewing signs of a newly-awakened a livliy. They realize that their dastardly conspiracy to create an artificial rise in prices has miserably failed, and that as the .western people begin to.apprecate the new tariff bill, they see that aw:, operate qsickly aud immensely to their interest. "Why just see what it dc- Mr. Clarkson exclaimed warmly; I "it reduces direct taxation to the | imoun of seventy-five millions ; t»fdo!lai.- and the people who are thus [ re iced are the poor people and most of si! the western farmers. Indeed it does lore than that. If experience is a good richer the net effect of the McKinley bi will be this. by its lower duties of .Mods not largely produced in this country and by its additions to the freelist, it will remit to the people about one Kindred and fifteen millions of dollars wki'h las: year were paid into the public freuvgy. These remitted taxes were i direct taxes that is they were duties I "i articles wherein there wa> practically re domestic competition and therefore \ u.- duty was added to the foreign Importers prices and finally collected r n the American consumer. The duties un sugar, molasses, needles, mat-I'U’ -eeds. sisal grass and hemp are fair *Vupk, of this taxation, and it fell to Carry McKinley IT IS A GOOD LAW. Secretary WtndnnTwuf Proceed Oat the Provisions of the Bill. Washington, Oct. 23. - Secretary \Yi adorn tins morning said nothing officially about the protests against the legality of the McKinley tariff bill. "I do nut, he said, "regard it as the province oi an executive officer to question the constitutionality of the acts of congress. It is for him to enforce the law as he finds it and not to determine the questions affecting its legality. I am therefore, executing the McKinley tariff act as I mid it and shall continue to do so unless a competent legal tribunal, such as the supreme court, decide-, the act unconstitutional. It is not, for me to question the validity of any of the signatures to' the nill a- enrolled, neither is it for me to determine whether the bill signed by the president did or did not in fact pass the lower house; much less is it for me to determine whether tho omission of the tobacco draw'-baek seetion or any other provision of tile bill invalidates the law as a whole. As I understand it, tile aet of October 1st. 1890, is a law of the land. My duty, therefore, is plain, and I shall execute irs provisions to the best of my ability. Its constitutionality is a question for the courts, aud until they decide against it I shall be governed by it it stands.” Attorney General Miller positively declined to discuss the question, saying it would be manifestly improper to do so unless It came to him in an official way. Commissioner of Internal Revenue Mason said: "It is not for me to say whether or not the omission of the tobacco provision vitiates the tariff. Being merely an executive officer (if the government, I must enforce it as I find it. Anyhow, the tobacco schedule does not take effect until January I, so if congress desires to refund the two cents a pound on all tobacco on hand when the law takes effect. it has ample time to legislate to that end.” No alarm whatever is felt bere among the friends of the McKinley bill as to th*1 legality of itsoenaetment. The precedents of unnumbered years, an old and experienced employe of the house said today, loaves no doubt that the error whether omission or commission in the enrollment of a bill passed by congress, doe?- not vitiate any part of the measure except that part to which the order relates. Captain McGregor, chief of the customs division, recalls a somewhat similar ca>e under the wool act of 1*07. The tariff act bore the date of the second of March; but congress extended the session of the second over to the fourth, so as a matter of fact the bill was not signed till about noon of the fourth of March. The question arose w hether s cargo that arrived on the Third, should pay a duty at tile o'd rate (as the bill was actually not signed until after its arrival,) or the new rate. Tile ca-e was carried in;o court which consented to go behind th*: public record and take the testimony of I’resi-dent Johnson himself a- to when the act was signed. A similar question will, of course, come up In connection with the McKinley bill. A copy of the act which went to th*- president and was 'inned by him certainly bore the signature' of tho presiding officers of the two houses of congress, certifying to if = correctness It must now1 be settled whether it be lawful to go behind this certification aud ascertain what was really the bill passed bv the two houses.

W ATK hi .o°, la., Oct. 23.—The mighty man of Maine, Speaker Reed, on his arrival from Burlington, was greeted with a crowd ot over one thousand at the depot. n response to loud calls he stepped upon the platform and made a few remarks. Among other things he said: Th,1 idea or the republican party is to take care of the weak. That is what the protective theory does. It was a regular ovation al the park tins afternoon, perhaps the largest political gathering held in Iowa for years. the crowd wits estimated from lo.OOO to I r>, OOO. Every county in the (net sent large delegations. It a great way above anything attempted and exceeded all expectations. I rider the leadership of C. C. Dowell, president; C. II. Bother', secy; J.J Long, treasurer: R. B. Dennis, A. W. Clancy, tim executive committee of the Young Men s Republican Club to the number of over one hundred and fifty left Des Moines via the Diagonal ar eight o'clock this morning with representatives of veteran Tippecanoes and ladies. The delegation was very large, numbering several hundred. By the time the train reached \\ aterloo over >:x hundred had joined j th*1 excursion of the young hustlers from Des Moines. On arriving her**, headed by the famous State hand of i)e> Moines, they inarched to headquarters and lustily cheered Reed, Henderson aud Republicanism. After dinner they ne led a> an escort to Reed and other prominent republicans to the park. In the lead of the procession was th*1 dub's banner aud Hag. Through the line were scattered the following banners, brought by Genes Moines club: "Tom Reed Can Count a Quorum in Iowa.” “Republican Stars— North Dakota, South Dakota. Montana, Wa siiington, Idaho, Wyoming.” "Democratic Stars—“Against American Silver.” "Adulterated Grub,” "Breckeuridge's Ghost. ' "Cobden Club,” "Kilgore's Foot,” "Free Ruin Hell," "Historic f igures—300,I*”),329, iff*;.” " The Capital District Greets Henderson,” and other appropriate mottoes. In the rear of the Young Mens Republican dub came representations from every county in the third district, Cedar Rapids club of over one hundred. Butler county, I). IL Henderson club, OOO, with a band, and the Laporte City Republican club with a band. Dubuque 'ent a large delegation and a baud. Among the distinguished Iowa republicans were Henderson, Strubie, Sweeney, Farmer, Coffin, M. D. O Connell, Judge S. M. Weaver, Chairman Mack. Col. C. E. Vroomau. G. M. Christian and G. M. Pray. When Reed came in sight of tlie park he was greeted with tremendous applause. After acknowledging the greeting he said: “There seems to be a good many of you here, but I fail to see the 'ad - eyed. poverty striken, mortgage-ridden fanner of Iowa whom the democratic party have abused me to look out for. I don’t think he is here and so I shall have to address myself to the wealthy and bloated manufacturer' I se*- before me. If you are a.,y of you farmers it is evident that the democratic papers have been lying about you. [Tremendous cheering].” Reed dwelt mainly upon the tariff question and handled that subject iii a manner which leaves but little for the democrats to crow over Colonel Henderson, when he followed Reed,was given a perfect ovation. Every- . body cheered and hats went skyward. I The crowd 'bowed how they intended to I vote. He was freqently applauded aud j made one of his best. speeches. ('un- I gressman Strubie followed Henderson in | a short speech. This evening th*' two opera houses I were packed to the walls. Speaker Reed and Congressman Henderson made short speeches at the meeting, as did also M. I). O’Connell, Farmer Coffin, j Congressman Sweeney and others. To take the hand of Speaker Reed; to hear him: to talk with him socially, was a recompense for any outlay o: expense or trouble. Those who wer*1 here will remember the occasion as long a-* life lasts and if there are any democrats left in Black Hawk county their cas* is hopeless. It was a> good as seeing a president. Those who J came over the Diagonal with the Des Moines contingent helped to make the meeting successful in no little manner. The officers of the club marched the famous state band in front of ail the hotels, new’spapei offices and opera houses and gave many fine serenades. Speaker Reed feels more than pleased and grateful for ids reception in Iowa arid want' to "come again.” Everything is looking fine and the Third district was never in better shape. The streets of Waterloo are finely illuminated to-night. Prior to the meeting cannons were fired and red I lights burned everywhere I was enthusiastically happy. HILL’S STUMPING TOUR. II*1 Talk* IIciiHit-Hfy to tilt1 People of Millersburg. Dido. Massillon. Ohio. Oct. 23.—Governor Hill and par ny this morning went to Millersburg, tile county seat of Holmes county, which is a purely agricultural county. The governor wax greeted at the depot bv an enormous crowd and on reaching the hotel held an informal reception, shaking bands with many hundred people for about two hours. After dinner he spoke at. the village opera house to fifteen hundred people, ax many more being unable to gain admission. He devoted the greater part of hi' speech to a discussion of the effects of th*1 McKinley bill on agricultural interests. According to the republicans, saki he. it is the miserable pauper labor of foreign lands which is competing with the American fanner for his home agricultural markets. Most of our agricultural products need no more protection from foreign competition than an elephant needs protection from a mouse. The mere statement, of exports and import' shows the bald absurdity of McKinley's conclusion that "damaging foreign competition in our home markets” L the cause of th*1 agricultural depression. The framers of Hie McKinley oiil, after pointing with horror at the alleged '35G.ooo.oog worth of imported agricultural products, actually reduced the existing dutic' one-third, left one-half of them untouched and increased the duties on scarcely one-sixth, which proportion includes articles that are in no sense serious competitors with American products. This evening, in Massillon, the governor spoke in th*- rink and Congressman Springer, of Illinois, in the opera house. The party starts for West Virginia tomorrow morning in Senator Brice s private ['ar. IGitdUat ion or SennHtior.nl Letter** of Major Barttellot, the Murdered Rear Du a rd Commander -stanley Refuse* to he Interviewed. London, Oct. 23.—The'dairiesand l*-t-tersof Maj. Barttellot,’the murdered com- j rnander of Stanley's rear guard, ar*: published here to day. They contain serious charges against the African explorer. The book was edited by the dead man’-brother, Walter Barttellot who, in tile preface says:    "It is not likely that this book would have been published had justice been evcu partially done or any kindness shown by tim leader of the exited)lion to the officer who wa' left at Yambuya with impediments, stores aud baggage." Charges of malignity, ingratitude. uff>-representation and desertion ar*1 then brought against Stanley. In his book Manley finds fault because th*1 rear column did not follow the advance column a' directed. Barttellot asserts that his brother's diaries and letters, as well ax the testimony of surviving officers 'how that Stanley made it utterly impossible to carry out the orders as he took all strong, able men and those of good character with him, leaving to the rear guard the sick. feeble and incorrigible. Major Barttelhit's diariex declare Gat Stanley threatened to blast the major’s reputation with Lord Wolseley and ruin his career in the army, In referring to tiffs incident Barttellot gave his brother's words:    "Afterwards, turn fig to me, Stanley said it was in iii' power to ruin me in cb*1 service. I said to him this was an empty threat, a' it would take a great deal more than he could do to do that. He punished me afterward' by making me march to Leopoldville with 'evenly men, who were noted for laziness and incapacity for carrying load.', warning foe if I lost a single load I must stand the consequence.” This expose of Stanley’s character, as show n up by diaries and letters, makes spicy reading. The story includes the account of a quarrel between Stanley and Jephsou. The publication has caused a great sensation here. Stanley refuses to be interviewed on th** subject. have never seen anything in his conduct to indicate that he was low spirited. So I far as I know his accounts are all right.

Coli mbus, Oct. 23.—In the house this morning th*; bill providing for a nonpartisan board of improvements for Cincinnati, to be appointed by the mayor, was read a second time aud the house re-fesed, by a vote of TI to 33, -to suspend the rules for th*1 third reading in order that th* bill might be placed on the passage. The opponents of Governor Campbell endeavored to secure the adoption of a resolution calling upon the governor for any evidence in his possession, as to the dishonesty of members of the board of improvement, but failed, and the house at twelve o’clock adjourned until to-morrow. In tile senate a resolution was offered to appoint a committee of three to investigate the charge, that the clerk of the senate had purposely detained the nonpartisan bill after it passed the senate, thus delaying the work of the legislature. The resolution went over under the rules. The republicans made an effort to relieve the committee on municipal corporations from the further consideration of lim senate bill for the abolishment of the decennial board of equalization at Cincinnati. The morion failed by a party vote and the republicans offered a protest to be spread on the journal against the action of the majority in hanging up legislation in committees. The senate adjourned until to-morrow. The only result accum pl’shed to-day was the consideration of local measures. NON-PARTISAN TEMPERANCE.

Oct. 23.—Only meagre re-Ev**rybody , reports can be obtained concerning the reported riots in Coffee county as the trouble occurred some distance from the nearest point of telegraphic communication. It appears that in the riot four white men were shot, down, viz: B. B. McClendon, Frank and Thomas 8eers atid John Hendrix. None of these are i dead according to lh*1 latest reports. The i governor has received a request to order j out th*1 militia on the ground that the white people are at th*1 mercy of an armed mob of negroes. He accordingly ordered the May Cross rifles to proceed at once to the scene of trouble. It appears Hie negroes are being led in the riot by one L. R. Varne, a white man, engaged in the turpentine mill. Stokes and Varne and Thomas Seers had a dispute about a t ract of land. Marne put fits men to work on th*1 timber land and Seers shot one of iii*1 negroes and drove the others from the wood. They returned in the afternoon and fired into a crowd of Varne’s hands. Yarne’s negroes to have revenge on Seers armed themselves and made an assault on the settlement with the foregoing result. At last accounts matters were somewhat quieted and it is believed there will be no other trouble. Will VI El d Suttirieut Fund*.

As the men who committed the deed w**re running away they passed under a gas light in front of the house of August Moldenhaur,    a justice of the peace. They    cooly stopped there and looked over the content* of the big    old fashioned wallet in which Breezell carried his money and papers. 8electing the money from the pocketbook the men tossed the wallet and papers over tile fence into the vacant lot. Mrs. Moldenhaur was standing in the front parlor and saw the men very plainly by the light of the. lamp. This afternoon the police arrested Frank Burrus, who says he is from Buffalo, Thomas 8ye, hailing from Montreal, and John Murphy, from Toronto, on suspicion of having murdered Breezell.

New York, Oct. 23.—George Crosby Creighton, banker, was this morning found dead in his office, having shot himself sometime during the night with a revolver. The body was cold and rigid when found, death having evidently occurred some hours before. The dead man lay on the sofa with a revolver, containing an empty shell in one chamber, at his side. On the office table lay sev eral sealed letters addressed to his wife and his partner, II. H. Brigham. An open letter was addressed to “All whom it may concern,” and read as follows: “I have fought a hard business battle; have made a square fight but lost. My brain has given way and now my body body must go. Please break the news gently to my wife.

In th*1 fourteenth round    Dixon hit Murphy four times while    Murphy hit him    once.    Blood streamed down Murphy*' ne<k and Dixon continued to pound his stomach amid cries of foul and hi'sing. Little was done from this to the twenty-second round except sparring for wind, in the twenty-second Murphy landed a good blow on Dixon's face but received in return the most terrific blow yet landed. From this time on Dixon pushed Murphy hard, smashing him right and left and forcing him round the ring Murphy was too weak lo inflct punishment. Still he pluckily responded to the call of time In each round. In the thirty-ninth round. Murphy. bleeding and exhausted was reclining against the ropes too weak to defend himself, with Dixon showering blows upon him, when Murphy's second threw up the sponge aud gave up the fight. His friends sprang on the stage and protested that he had not, been knocked out, but th*1 referee would not allow the contest to proceed further.
