Trenton Times, The (Newspaper) - May 23, 1890, Trenton, New Jersey YOU VIII. NO. TRKNTON, FiiTDAY AKTKJKNOON, MAY 23, 1890. TWO OKNlS I HE WORK OF CONGRESS. Senator Daniel's Views on -the Silver Bill. THE OF 1878. lie Sa.m the Hill Was Smussled Through CoHKi-rss and Signed by the President Sherman's JJeuiaL Louisiana Pleadti for lletter WASIHXOTOX, the senate the credentials of Culviii S. Ilrice as senatoi frnm the state of Ohio for six years, com- mencing March 4, 1891, were presented bj Jfr. Payne, read and placed on file. The silver bill was then taken up and Mr DanU'1 addressed the senate in favor ol silver currency. The financial system ol tlie country, he Said, was in disarray. II comprehended taxation, cun-ency and debt Separately aud collectively they were out of joint. The currency was insufficient in volume to maintain, prices, and was irre- sponsive to the laws of trade. The Suggestion lltdiculed. Taxation was excessive a worse than useless burden, and the public debt had been put in such anomalous relation to the laws that the government appeared on both sides of the salescounter in the most contradictory position. He ridiculed tht suggestion that in the event of free coinage the United States would be flooded with silver: The secretary .of the treasury stated in his report that there was no known ac- cumulation of silver bullion anywhere ID the world, and certainly there was no sncl annual production to cause any fear. spoke of the demonetization act of 1873 as having been smuggled through congress and signed by thtJ president iguorantly. Senator Sherman's Denial. Mr. Sherman denied this last statement and said the act of 1873 had been discussed in congress for two years and largely dis- tributed throughout the country. Mr. Daniel still claimed that the demonetiza- tion of 1873 was a matter unknown to con- gress and to the country. Mr. Stewart (then as now a member of the senate) sup- ported the statement by saying: "It was not stated in the.discussion that there was any intention to leave out the silver dol- lar." The silver bill was laid aside without action and the naval appropriation bill was taken up. During the discussion Mr. Gorman criticised the system of using navy yards for public purposes instead ol having the work done in private shops, and Mr. Hawkey replied in defense of the navy department. The Tariff Bill Delayed. The engrossing clerks of the house ol representatives did not complete engrossment of the tariff bill as they expected, and it will not reach the senate until this afternoon. It will be re- f erred immediately .to the finance commit- tee, which will determine upon an order ol business in relation to it at the regiilm meeting Tuesday next. Bills In the Senate. The follow ing bills were among those in- troduced: By Mr. Hiscock Subjecting oleomargarine to the provisions of the laws of the several states. This bill carries out the theory advanced by Mr. Hiscock in the discussion of the liquor bill, that if the United States could give up its right to regulate commerce in one article under the interstate commerce provisipn of the con- stitution it, could relinquish the same right in relation to another article. By Mr. that in case o) a collision at sea between two vessels it shall be- the duty of the person in charge of each, to remain near the other so far as can be done without danger to passengers or vessel for the purpose of rendering as- sistance and of giving the name of the ves- sel, and any person who shall fail to do this shall be held in default of proof to the contrary to be responsible for the collision! and further, he shall be liable to a fine oi or imprisonment not to exceed two years, and the informer against him shall receive one-half of the fine which may be imposed. In the House. WASHINGTON, May the house Mr. Durmell from the committee on census, reported a bill amendatory of the. census act. Passed. It prescribes a pen- alty upon any supervisor or enumerator who shall receive, or any person who shall pay, any fee or other consideration in addi- ti.lt to the compensation of such supervisor or enumerator. A bill was passed appropriating to supply a deficiency in the appropriation' for public printing and binding. The house then went into committee of the whole uu the river and harbor bill- Mr. Henderson chairman of the commit- tee on rivers and harbors, explained the provisions of the bill, stating that it ap- propriated based upon estimates aggregating He believed that there was no money that went out of the treasury that was so much in the interest of the people of the country at the money expended in the improvement of rivers and harbors. A Plea from Mr. Blanchard (La.) said the fact that a great nnd disastrous flood had recently oc- curred in the lower valley the Missis- sippi river was a sufficient excuse (it the excuse was needed) for calling the atten- tion of the house to thing, eat river which periodically overflowed its banks to the great destruction of property and often to the destruction of human life. It was time' that congress should be -waking up to the 1dm that something should be done to haruess its waters. He found explicit authority In the constitution justifying congrion in restraining flood waters. The late flood had not that the levoo system WAX a failure, but ttmt an oystem of Woes prevent flood. Mr. MoAdoo'i Cennui Resolution. "The protests that have boon made in a number of newspapers and to of congress concerning the questions to be asked by census enumerators caused Rep- resentative McAdoo (N. J.) to introduce the following resolution in the house: Whereas complaint la being nude by of ttie aHeftt-tl inquisitorial character of 1 lions proposed to be asked by the census enumer- ators, which questions are declared to be incom- patible with the rights of free men, and an un- warranted aod unconstitutional exercise of power by the federal government; therefore, Be It resolved, the committee on the eleventh census be, they are hereby directed to make Inquiry into the questions proposed to be asked of citizens by the census bureau and Its agents, aud to report by bill orothetwUe look- ing If found necessary to the proper restriction of thp same. Mr. Q'linn (N. Y.) introduced a bill re- ducing1 to one cent mi ounce or fraction thereof the piWflrrn on drop letters in cities of o.-_over. A WINDED Andy Howe CYCLONE.

In the seven rounds following both men fought cautiously and Myer was trying to tire Bowen out. 1" the sixteenth round Bowen hit Billy on the neck aud on the breast and then landed a hard one under Myer's heart. In the seventeenth round Bowen landed twice in Myer's fact and terrible infighting followed. la the eighteenth round Myer received a blow on the neck which staggered him. The nine- teenth round was without result. In the twentieth round Myer chased Boweii around and asked him to come up and fight. Bowen replied by lauding on Billy's neck and getting him on the ropes. He then lead and slugged Myer in the chin. After sparring Myer knocked Boweu on the ropes and the round ended in Myer's favor. In the twenty-second round Bowen hit Myer square on the nose. From the twenty-third round to the twenty-sixth round the fighting was light. In the twenty-sixth round Myer made des- perate attempts to get in a knockout blow, but Bowen dodged it and got away. At the end of this round the honors were about even. In the twenty-seventh round both men fought like demons. The rouud ended in Myer's favor. In the twenty-eighth round the men were both pretty well exhausted. Myer got Bowen on the ropes. The police separated them. When time was called for the twenty-ninth round Mr. Chfjney. came forward and gave the fight up. He claimed that Myer's hand had given out in the tenth round. The referee thereupon decided Bowen the winner. INVENTOR EDISON ACCUSED. THE BASEBALL WORLD. National League. At New York- New York S108SOOOJH Plttaburg Base lilts Sew VDrk, 17; Pittsburgh.1.

Freeman Says the Wizard Stole Ills Incandescent T.nuip. NEW YORK, May was begun of a suit against the United States Electric Lightning company by Walter K. Free man, who claims that he, and not Edison, invented tlie incandescent lamp, and who alleges that the company made a contract with him in 1882 to push his claim before the patent office, anci if successful, to pay him for it. He alleges that through the neglect of the company the application failed, and he sues for the and for damages for being discharged and for loss of salary. One of the allegations made by Freeman is that in 1878, while liv- ing in Racine, Wis., he invented the lamp and sent it to Edison. About two years later Edison announced as his own invention the same lamp, and when Freeman protested, Edison offered him if he would keep quiet about it. He afterwards entered the company's em- ploy. The company claims that it never contracted to push Freeman's claim, but if he would establish a patent himself the company would buy his rights, The com- pany also charges that even this contract obtained by fraudulent representations on Freeman's part, and that he subse- quently sold his alleged .rights to other parties. The claim for salary due is also denied. Mr. Edison is not made a party to the suit. New Empire State Laws. Ai.BANT, N.
