Le Mars Semi-Weekly Sentinel (Newspaper) - February 10, 1891, Lemars, Iowa VOL. XXJ. . LEMARS, IOWA, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, LSSUKD 8HJM1- WEEKLY Trans- Mississippi Commercial Congress at Galvestoh. • IJSS AND JEFFERSON DAVIS. ECONOMIC QUESTIONS IN ORDER. The Sense of the Gathering Shown in the Resolutions Adopted— The Irrigation Conference at Sidney, Neb., and the Needs of Western Nebraska. GALVESTON, Tex., Feb. 9.— The report of the committee on resolutions of the inter- state congress provides that the congress shall be styled " the trans- Mississippi Commercial congress" and states that the sole purpose of the convention, and that to be called by- it, shall be the consideration of economic questions only. It urges upon congress to provide by adequate appropriations for the completion of the work on the deep water harbor at Galveston as speedily as possible without interruption; favors free and unlimited coinage of silver;, favors the immediate opening of Indian reservations in Oklahoma and elsewhere, to the end that the vast areas of land now appropriated to no useful purpose may be added to the productive sections of the nation. The action of the government as to reciprocity with Brazil meets the enthusiastic approval of the convention, and it is hoped the movement will be extended until it embraces the whole of South and Central America and Mexico. The report favors the granting of national charters to corporations running American vessels in foreign trade, and declares that the basis of representation for future sessions of this congress shall be: Thirty delegates- at- large from each state and territory, to be appointed by the county commissioners; one delegate from each city and one additional delegate for each 10,000 or fraction in excess of 10,000 of the population, to be appointed by the mayors; ten delegates from each board of" trade, chamber of commerce, or other commercial organization, to be selected by such bodies as they may elect; that all railroad com : parties operating west of the Mississippi river shall be entitled to two delegates each, and that they may be earnestly urged to be represented, to the end that a just understanding may be reached between the people and the great transportation lines of the west and southwest; that the boards of trade, chambers of commerce, exchanges, and commercial clubs, represented in this convention, shall be entitled to thirty votes, and that all other organizations of a progressive or commercial character here represented shall be entitled to ten votes, whether the delegations be fully represented or not; that the permanent organization effected at this session be continued Tintil the next meeting of this congress and that the permanent officers of this congress shall act as temporary officers of the next; that we recommend the appointment of D. C. Imboden of Galveston, Ryerson Ritchie of Kansas City, H. L. Pierce of Wichita, E. 0. Flood of Galvoston and the secretary of this convention as a committee to formulate and present at our next convention statistics relating to the commerce of the west and south- west.' The committee was unanimous on all the foregoing resolutions except the one relating to reciprocity, and upon that a minority report was presented but was rejected. Maj. E. W. Crane of Houston, then moved to amend the resolution relating to the free coinage of silver by adding the words " The product of the mines of the United States." After a short discussion it was adopted and the convention adjourned to meet in Denver, Colo., on May 19, 1891. IRRIGATION CONVENTION. The General Denies the Allegations Made by Davis' Widow. CHICAGO, Feb. 9.— In the memoirs of Jefferson Davis, recently published by his widow, many pages are devoted to a description of the " Tortures of Fortress Monroe," of which district Gen. Miles, now at the division of the Missouri, was in command at the time Davis was imprisoned there. Mrs. Davis charges Gen. Miles with cruelty to the ex- presiden of the Confederacy. He is charged with shackling Davis by brutal force, keeping him in a vermin- infested cell, withholding his clothes and linen and making souvenirs out of his possessions, even his hair, when he had it cut. Gen. Miles was interviewed in regard to the matter. He said he did not mind the attack. " Of course," he added, " Mrs. Davis feels bitter towards'me, as she probably does towards many more northern soldiers. While caring nothing at all for anything she may say or write, I would call your attention to the fact that Jefferson Davis managed to survive my cruel treatment and lived twenty years after, finally dying of old age. That would hardly have been the case, I think, if he had been subjected to such horrible abuses. There is not a particle of truth in the statements made by his wife. Ths fact is that Jeff Davis never was in better trim than when he was liberated." How Justice Is Meted Out to Delaware Offenders. A. SENSATIONAL IOWA ELOPEMENT STEHX WORKERS OUT. A Fatal Prize Fight at Seattle— Clever Work of a Forger— A Desperate Fight with Burglars — Big Reward for Assassins. Many Able Speakers Discuss the Subject at Sidney — Resolutions Adopted. SIDNEY, Neb., Feb. 9.— W. P. Miles called the irrigation convention to order at 2 o'clock. Mark M. Neeves was chosen chairman and Joseph Oberfclder and L. B. Carey secretaries. Chairman Neeves briefly stated the object of the convention. Speeches were made by Wrn. E. Smythe of Omaha, Judge Cochran, Maj. Lehew, W. E. Bobbins, Hon. Henry S. Baynor, B. H. Lawrence, Albert Frame, Joseph Heberl, reviewing the subject in all its phases. The following resolutions were adopted: Whereas, We are thoroughly convinced that the western half of Nebraska requires irrigation to assist its rich, and superb climate in producing successful agriculture; therefore be it Besolved, by this convention, representing the most remote western counties, that it hereby urges the legislature to speedily enact comprehensive irrigation laws of a similar character to those of Wyoming and Colorado and providing for the appointment of an expert state engineer and the division of the state into water districts. It is further Resolved, That we reiterate our faith in the grand future of this state and that we cordially invite the co- operation of both foreign and domestic , capital in its development. It is further Besolved, That we urge the legislature to memorialize congress in favor of the bill providing for the donation of the public lands to the several states. It is further Resolved, That we memorialize the legislature to make an appropriation to assist in the beginning of irrigation enterprises. The convention elected as its representatives to draft irrigation laws for presentation to the legislature, Messrs. Carey, Bayner and Smythe. Minnesota Democrats and the Farmers' Alliance to Join Forces. ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 9.— It is stated that the simultaneous presence here of the Democratic state organization committee of twenty- five and the executive committee of the State Farmers' Alliance is for no less a purpose than the complete fusion of the two parties, with Ignatius Donnelly, the Shakespearian iconoclast, for governor, Thomas Wilson for United States senator to succeed Cushman K. Davis, and in case the Alliance nominates a national ticket a division of the electors on the basis of four to the Alliance and five to the Democrats. The argument used is that the parties are agreed on t^ e tariff and silver- question, at least in vue state, and can win by fusion where they would fail utterly in fighting single handed. The vote in the state in November was: Republicans, 87,000; Democrats, 85,000, and Alliance, 58,000, giving a fusion - majority of over 60,000. i • Dying from Hiccough. NEW\ HAVEN, - Conn., Feb. 9.— Alice ', - JWboclwaraf a girl of about 10 years^ has beeir hiccoughing incessantly- for six Five Hundred Furnacemcn Quit Work and the Illinois Steel ^ Company's Fires Are Deserted. . sB CHICAGO, Feb. 9.— Five hundred furnacemen employed at the Illinois Steel company's works at South Chicago have quit, r. nd work at that plant, the greatest of its kind in the world, is practically at a standstill. The men asked an increase of 10 per cent, on wages. The* company replied by offering to increase the helping force 1 per cent, and wages at the same rate. This was refused. Superintendent Foote told the men he would blow out the furnaces in twentyfour hours unless they accepted his terms. He discharged a part of the employes of one furnace. The superintendent then threatened that no one who quit should again work for the company, but they aL. quit work on time and left the furnaces in good condition. The forty switchmen were laid off, as there vvasnoworK for them. The engineers and firemen followed and the great works are deserted. Want a Ship Canal. WALLA WALLA, Wash., Feb. 9.— The Columbia and Snake Biver Auxiliary Waterway convention, consisting of delegates from Washington, Oregon and Idaho, has adopted resolutions expressing belief that a ship railway, as recommended by the Oregon delegation in congress, is the most economical, satisfactory and expeditious plan for a permanent improvement of the dalles of the Columbia river. The memorial to the legislatures of Washington, Oregon and Idaho sets forth that financial distress prevails in the territory drained by the Columbia, on account of inability of the railroad companies tc move the grain crop at the proper time, and as a temporary relief urges the construction of a portage raihvd, y around the cascades and dalles, in order that tlje river may be made navigable to the inland empire. A World's Fair Appointment. CHICAGO, Feb. 9.— Director General Davis has received a number of letters urging the appointment of D. B. W. Raymond of New York, as chief of the department of mines and mining. Dr. Baymond is at present secretary of the American Institute of Mining Engineers, of which society he has twice been president. He is now in Europe and is unaware of the use of his name in this connection. Gold in North Dakota. AEVILLA, N. D., Feb. 9.— John Clernmer of Wheatfield has been drilling a well for Mrs. Miller, of the Aultman Mill company, on her big farm in the town of McKinock, one mile from Arvilla. After having passed his drill through cliiierent material he struck a vein that has been decided upon by local experts as a rich vein of gold. Everybody is wild/ Beal estate is changing hands freely in the neighborhood. WILMTNGTOM, Del., Feb. 9.— The majesty of Delaware justice was sustained " in the ram at Newcastle. Eleven men svere whipped by the sheriff. Two men rtood in the pillory for an hour— one an Did gray- haired man who had pleaded guilty to a petty forgery, and the other i negro who had been convicted of burglary and larceny. After the men had. been pilloried fifteen minutes they were dripping wet and chilled to the bones. The suffered much and kept shifting their weights from one leg to the other. Streams of water ran from their heads, heads hands and shoulders, and the old man's hands were blue with cold. When taken from the pillory the men were numb and they could scarcely move their hands and necks. The negro, Willey, was then hastened to the post and twenty lashes. were laid across his bare back. They caused him much pain, the flesh being cold. Then ' came the other ten victims, each in turn receiving rive lashes from Sheriff Simmons. The total value of goods stolen by these ten thieves, as set forth in the indictments, was $ 56. Each of the victims will now undergo an imprisonment of one or two months. The cost of supporting and trying these men, with a half dozen other cases of the same kind, in which the penalty of the lash was not imposed, will not fall short of .$ 1,000. Three judges sat on the bench to hear these cases, which were looked after by the attorney general, the clerk of the court, the, petit and grand juries, the sheriff and several other county officials. The grand jury, in its report, suggested that some steps be taken by the legislature to provide a means of disposing of such petty cases outside court. CORED BY THE A Consumptive Restored by Dr. Koch' » Remedy— Spurious tymph Causes Death. ST. Louis, Feb. 9.— W.- A. Walters, who entered the Missouri hospital Jan. 21 a consumptive, leaves cured. All the known tests fail to reveal the slightest trace of consumption or tuberculosis of the lungs, and, so far as medical experts are. able to ascertain, Koch's lymph has performed the wonderful cure. Wialters was a consumptive for more than a . year. .'..-."'- • i Spurious Lymph. .. KANSAS CITY, Feb. 9.— Was John B. Ells murdered? That is the question which Coroner Langsdale and an able corps of assistants endeavored to decide at a post- mortem examination of the body at Stine's morgue. Ells died at the city hospital from the effects of. an injection of what was said to, be Dr. Koch's lymph. There is a great deal pf interest taken in the case among the members of the medical . profession. There is a great deal of doubt as to the genuineness of the fluid " injected. The deceased wife is loud in her denuncition of Dr. Baum, who administered the lymph, and says that she and her family were ignorant of the experiment. The coroner is very skeptical on the subject of Dr. Koch's treatment and when- he learned of Ells' death he determin^ dJOiSat a thorough investigation and a postmortem examination should be made. •*- Long Sessions of the Are in Order.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Feb. 9.— A rumor is current in railroad circles here that a deal is on foot which will result in the absorption of the Rio Grande Western by the Santa Fe company. Presidents Manville and Palmer, of the respective roads, have both been here during the last few days and made trips < of inspection of the western lines, and surf ace indications seem to give plausibility to the report that a consolidation is being arranged. Having purchased the Colorado Midland, with a terminus at Grand Junction, the acquirement of the Western would give the Santa Fe increased advantages in obtaining coast business and doubtless accelerate an extension to San Francisco from Salt Lake via the Yosemite Pass. ; of the county Big Reward for Assassins. SANTA FE., N. M., Feb. 9.— The governor sent out announcements to all parts of the southwest setting forth that the territory would pay '$ 5,000 for the arrest of each of the parties implicated in the attempt to assassinate Senator Catron, be the number few or many. The total amount at the disposal of the governor for ferreting out this villainy is $ 40,000, $ 10,000 of whicli was appropriated especially for the purpose of employing the best detectives in the land to'take hold of the case. Senator Anoketa, who received the shot intended for 16fy. Catron, is improving steadily, « ad will again ccupy his seat in the legislative coifhcil in a few days. A Sensational Elopement. SHENANDOAH, la., Feb. 9.— An auctioneer named Burton became infatuated with Mrs. Charles E. Bay. the wife of a leading merchant.

Burton and Mrs. Ray then left town, driving to a station ten miles away, where they took a train. A warrant was issued for Burton's arrest, charging him with horse stealing, but so far he has not been overtaken. Election Frauds. OGDEN, Utah, Feb. 9.— E. R. Ridgley, A. H. Nelson and W. S.

WASHINGTON, Feb. 9. — The ladies' " Spinner Memorial association," at their meeting after ekcting officers, discussed for a while the form which the memorial shall take, whether a hospital or a statue.

As a result of the meetingthe following announcement is given out by Mrs. Elizabeth C. Stoner, president of the association. The Gen. Spinner Memorial association sends greeting to all women of the United States and would announce: That, being desirous of honoring the memory of Gen. Francis E. Spinner, who by his action in introducing women into various grades of government service paved the way for their continued employment. not only in the government offices, but in many other places of business, thereby enabling each one such employed to rear carefully the children who should become the citizens of t the state, the daughter to protect . the parent,- brother, sister, or dependent relative; the friend to care for the helpless who would otherwise be left unaided, and all to share in some degree, at least, through departments of arts, science and literature as well as in the practical duties of life, the benefits secured in woman's advancement, we have determined through some public testimonial to exhibit to the world our appreciation of Gen. Spinner's advanced thought, and our gratitude for its important and far- reaching results. The form which this memorial shall assume is at present a subject of serious consideration, but the women of the United States may feel assured that in some appropriate manner it will represent the grand idea therein sought to be embodied.
