NO. 22 THI V. PAi'i BY MAJORITY. Mr. Vr-sf ii Opposing Thinks it is Doubtful Whether Chicago or ttndes is the Better Place for It A Display to be Miule In ith tlie "WASHINGTON, April 82. Tlie senate yes- terday passed the world's bill which was passed bv the house; adding to it an amend- ment providing for a naval review in New York harbor. Mr. Hawley called up the bill after the morning hour. The only amendment re- ported by the senate committee was a new section providing for a naval review in New Yorkharl-' :n April, 1893, and for tbe un- yeiling of a. btatue of Christopher Columbus at Washington. Mr. Vest opened the debate in opposition to the bill. At the outset he protested Against the assumption that the judgment of Ihe house in the matter of location for the fair was coercive on the senate. The fact that the city of St. Louis had been an aspir- ant as a site for the world's fair was a post- mortem proceeding and he did not intend to introduce ghosts to disturb the tranquility of the city of Chicago. He had always opposed all legislation looking to an exposition in 1892, and the law should not be passed which called it into existence. He did not believe that the people of the United States favored any such exposition. The agricultural people of the country had neither time nor money to give to a national circus such as was proposed. It had been said of him in a Chicago newspaper that he had declared that in a contest between Hades and Chicago for the fair, he would support Hades. As Chicago newspapers never lied, it -was unnecessary for him to say in a mild and not too emphatic way that he made no such statement. What he did say was that in a popular election among the people of Missouri for the location of the fair, it would be a very close poll between Hades and Chicago. As between these two localities in such a contest he would be strictly neutral The population of Chicago was active, energetic and aggressive; not troubled by those moral and conscientious considerations which a late interview characterized as "irredescent dreams." He had I een told that the population of Hades was composed of similar material. Chicago, besides, was full of trusts, monopolies and combines, and the latest authentic information from Hades was that they were forming there a trust on sul- phur in order to bear the market. The water of Chicago is defective, and in sup- port of this statement he referred to an article in the Chicago Herald stating that in- stead of a magnificent lake supply of pure water, the only supply came from filthy and fetid creeks reeking with the debris and corruption of stock yards. He took it that the same paper which had stated his position as between Hades and Chicago had also told the truth about the water supply. He ques- tioned whether there bad been anything in the whole contest for the fair that elevated or dignified the American character at home Or abroad. If the idea was to illustrate the national life on the 400th anniversary of America, why, he aske4, was it not done in the name of the people of the United States, without contests and squabbles over locali- ties? Why had the location been put up at auc- tion? If it was to be a national affair, why did not the nation itself with an overflowing treasury take upon itself the expense? The whole matter, he declared, from the begin- ning, had been simply an advertising scheme on a basis of rivalry between great cities of the country. Looking over and criticising the literature which had accumulated in the contest, he declared that if one-tenth part of what had been said by those cities about each other true not one of them should be per- mitted to control the destinies of an exposi- tion in which the character and honor of the whole people of the United States was in- volved. In this connection he read extracts from magazines and newspaper and commented on them as a scandal to the American name. Mr. Vest went on to say that in no place in the country were the extremes of the na- tional life so thoroughly developed as in Chicago. There the palace of the million- aire stood side by side w.th the hovel of the Anarchist; there could be found the rushing, roarinz life of legitimate business, and all the unseen but deadly which had come upon our overgrown young civilization. If his constituents would go to Chicago they would discover in the great stock yards amid the bellowing of cattle and the grunting of hogs the reason why the meat products of the great states of the West were so de- pressed; that the cattle raiser did not re- ceive pay for his corn and oats and .grass, and how their profits were lost. In conclu- sion, he said he did not believe that the ex- position could ever be a success; it came too soon after the Paris exposition, and in his judgment, the people outside of the cities enr gaged in the contest did not care anything about the exposition. Had the time come, he asked, when the people of this country had to be amused in their condition of pecuniary distress from unjust laws, and was the United States to follow the example of thoporOd countries which provided amuse- ment for tbe people in the gladaU.nal in order to prevent them tbe of tbe country! Mr. Hawley thought Mr. Vest was mis- taken in the senate aW-ated its power to any oUxr body in reran! to the pending measure. The bill, he 1 was admirably drawn. Mr. Gorman offered an amendment to rtnke naval review provision in- sert in Vu of )t an evproprifltkiTi of fora mriiv-nal in Washington, sis a d'-rvfiV'rv of of th' We-tern IV V-l Mr i 'i nnv'.l M .1 i 3 V a _, in in iialce I. ,.t fi (rreit cxrosiiitn I'T tens of t !.'tiier Mr. Vest liked it or not. ..i. J; lair opposed the proposition to bold n naval review as fostering a spirit of war, an.l said that "accursed institution, infernal war--tbo badge of be abol- and Uo thought this countiv strong enough to initiate the era of ji.vv-. Mr. Blair offered amendments mi! hni the president to hold an exhibition of tl.u public school? and a review of the pu' lie school children in Chicago, and to provide for the erection of a statue in memory of Quopn Isabella of Spain. Mr. Kherinan differed from Mr. Vest, be- lievinsr tuit the fair would be moio than a "show.1' Le had a groat na- tional exhibition been held that had not been of voot benefit to the nation that held it. Mr. Llair's amendment was rejected. The Queei. Isabella statue proposition op- posed by Air. Kawley on tlie ground that there was a hiaiorical uoubfc whether the queen leuJly assisted Columbus in his great expedition. Mr. J31air said there was a grave doubt whether Columbus ever discovered America. It was claimed by many that America was discovered 500 years before Columbus was born. The exhibition, he declared so far as it was connected with the name of Columbus, was a humbug1. The amendment was also re- jected. Mr. Hoar moved to strike out the Colum- bus statue provision. Mr. Allison argued against the statue as it had no business in the bill. It was not a wise thing to embarrass a bill having one purpose in view by providing for something else. Mr. Evarts thought nothing could be more cognate to the proposition of the whole bill than the two features proposed by the sen- ate naval review and the Columbus statue. The whole matter to be celebrated was the discovery of America by- Chicago fair was but an inci- dent. Mr. Plumb opposed the committee's amend- ment as incongrous and totally inapplicable to the purpose of the bill. The purpose back of the amendment was that New York should have something to break its fall: something to mimic the fair. It would, he thought, be small enough anyhow, without drawing off any portion of the people to witness a naval review. His opposition to the naval review was mainly because it was essentially a monarchical idea. Two monarchs never came together without a display of the in- struments of naval warfare. That ought to be, Mr. Plumb declared, wiped out the whole business. After further discussion Mr. Hoar's amend- ment was agreed to and the naval review amendment was agreed 28. nays, 27. The amendment as adopted is as follows: Section the president is hereby em- powered and directed to hold a naval review in New York harbor in April, 1893, and to extend to foreign nations an invitation to send ships of war to join the United States navy in rendezvous at Hampton Roads and proceed thence to said re- view. Mr. Blair offered an amendment to the first section of the bill; prohibiting the sale of liquors, wine or beer within the limits of the exhibition grounds, and made a short speech in support of it. The amendment was agreed 33; nays, 15. The bill (which had been under considera- tion as in committee of the whole) was then reported to the senate and a vote was again taken by yeas and nays on the amendment for a naval review. The vote resulted yeas, 27; navs, 25; so the provision remains in the bill. The bill was then passed, yeas, 43; nays, 13. Senators Barbour, Berry, Blackburn, Cock- rell, Coke, George, Hampton, Morgan, Pugh, Reagan, Vance, Vest and Walthall voted in the negative. A committee of conference on the disagreeing points was asked, and Messrs. Hawley, FarweU and Vance appointed con- ferees on the part of the senate. The senate then at p. m. adjourned, or its Vessels at the review. Mr. Evarts favored the amendment. Mr. Culloin said the verdict of the house in favor of locating the fair at Chicago had been obtiuue 1 without undue influence, with- out corruption and without any special strug- gle. 1 was no purpose on the part cf other than to carry out the very let- ter cl Ih pledges already made. On the other band Chicago would make the fair a grand and would manifest her appre- ciation of the great honor conferred upon her. When the name of Chicago was men- tioned, said Cullom, the senator from Missouri (Mr. Vest) seemed to be seized with a kind of li v-drrphobia. The senate had said tl.e of Missouri were in doubt whether they would >ro to Chicago or Hades and raised the question place the senator represented; but the people of Missouri Thn TTlira Masonic Hnme.

A Aii'lrens Issued, of the Csiiist'S ami of of Farmers and Iltvil 1'rinoljmlly Ke- Day in Congress. VfASinvt.Tnv. April Secretary llubk, In replv t i i of coinniuiiicationsfrom difl.Vn.-nt i't i t he1 cmintrv appealing to Lnn for an cf opinion respect- ing the present condition of a riculUiral de- pression, its and remedies, bus is- uecl a long address to the farmer.- of the country. The present icultursl deprtPiion, uni- versally admitted, and of which there can be no doubt, tbo secretary says, can be traced to a combination of many that probably no o-ie man can enumerate them alL Thoie causes which to the secretary seem more directly responsible for this severe depression may be divided into two classes; those inherent to farmers themselves, and for which they alone can provide a possible remedy, and those over which the fanner himself has no direct control, and the remedy for which must be provided by law. In the first class of causes indicated, he at- tributes depreciation of the productive power of land to a variety of causes; to careless cul- ture, want of business-like methods, lack of study of supply and demand, and market prices, and the ownerscip of more land by many than they can properly care for. After referring briefly to the discouraging effects of farm mortgages, ths difficulties of the transportation question, gambling in farm products, controlling combinations and the depressing effect of the increase of middle- men on the results of the farmers' honest toil, Secretary Rusk advances an argument in favor of duties on agricultural products. One of the gravest causes for the present agricultural depression, in the opinion of tbe secretary, is lack of protection for the farm- er. Few people, he says, realize that our imports of agricultural products, estimated at prices paid by the consumer, are about equal to our agricultural exports estimated at prices paid by the farmer, yet such is the case. Our imports of products sold in com- petition with those actually produced on our own soil amount to nearly annually, and as much more could produced on our own soil under favorable conditions. Our imports of agricultural products for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1889, aggregated the far greater part of which, perhaps secretary thinks, with proper encouragement be produced on our own soil. To protection the secretary looks for a remedy. "One he says, "at the comparative rates of duty levied upon agri- culture as compared with other products; one glance at the f list, the greater por- tion of which consists of agricultural pro- dncte, which either grow or eculd be grown upon eur own soil, and a comparison of these figures with the average rate of duty levied opon manufactured articles, ought to be suf- ficient to silence forever any opposition to the demand I hara made on behalf of the Ameiican farmer in my annual report; namely, that by a wise application of our admirable protective system, all the benefits of our home market be secured to him for everything he may be able to produce. "Our system of taxation demands improve- ment in certain directions. Tbe cost of sup- porting the government needs to be most equitably adjusted among the different classes of our people. At present in many states the burden of local Taxation presses heavily upon farm property, its very nature rendering it easily assessable. Every corporation cre- ated'by the state, and to whom special priv- ileges are granted, either by state, county or incorp' vaied village or city, should be taxed in proportion to its earnings, and in all ways the principle of taxation should be to place the harden of maintaining tho government, whether state, municipal or national, upon the luxurv and comforts which th? w'altby enjoy, and to reduce it to a mii.ii.uim in its application to the hardly earned property of the poor man. __________ IN HOUSE AND SENATE. "WASnixsrox, April house ye-ter- dar concurred in the sc-nate amendment? to fair bill, and fvpsnt the rest of the day in riiwHsFlng; the legislative, executive and appropriation bill The house wer.t f "remittee of the whole on tbe legislative, and judicial appropria- tion bill. ?ir. P-ilVrworih of Ohio explained th" p-i-vjs Jl-e bill, baying thnt in v.-nc of the oepiriBieiitj. there was sulwlantiaily a r-ivii li't nf   lull. Mr. Illinois criticised the Re- publn ans o! fir- house for not bringing iu a bill tor tlu of the silver question and thu- the oppressed people of the y. 1.1 r. .iit lint at Ihe t'lij-1 lh'> ,i' of the hOu.se woui'l -L- t r 'iii country understood the ..t 1 lie administration. The anxit-ty nuiiiic-te I on the Democratic side in to the popularity and success of the administration was the best sign that the Republican side ought to be satisfied with the administration, and for one he was. At the proper time the Republican side would bring in a silver bill which would be satisfac- tory to the public. Speaking of the civil service system, he said that he did not believe that the law and its administration was approved by one-fifth of the members of either house of congress. He believed that if each member of the house would vote his deliberate opinion, he would declare that the whole system was founded 011 a mistake, and its administration was on a false principle. It was detrimental to the very purpose it was aimed to accomplish. [Applause.] Sir. Lodge cf Massachusetts defended the civil service law and resented it being char- acterized as a humbug and a fraud. It was not un-American and un- Republican. To him the tilings which were un-American and un-Republican v.-ere favoritism and nepotism and personal interest by which a spoils or patronage system must be always operated. It was un-American to see the representatives of the people hanging about the ante-cham- bers of the government offices. It was neither respectful, nor decent, nor manly to have officers of the government giving hour after hour of their time to 1 stening to per- sonal and political appeals. The system of spoils was not American. "What was Amer- ican was fair play and an open field. Subsequently in the debate Mr. Lodge read from the York Evening Post a list tf. the occupations of the Tammany esecu- committee. In retaliation for this Mr. Spinola read from the same paper an article reflecting upon the character of Senator Quay. He was called to order by Mr. Grosvenor, who claimed that it was not in order for a repre- sentative to read a scurrilous attack on a senator. The chairman ruled the point well taken, and Mr. Spinola continued in order, attack- ing the administration as being "English, you know." It had abolished the green stamps, the color of eld Erin, and substituted a red stamp. Mr. "Washington of Tennessee criticised the administration of the civil service law, de- claring that the law was juggled with. Mr. Kerr said that President Harrison's administration was standing fairly up to the civil service law. Mr. Dannell of Minnesota moved to strike out the appropriation of for clerks for senators. Pending a vote on this the committee rose and the house adjourned. AN IMPORTANT INVENTION. ADDiil'SS TO WOKKKRS. THE FEDERATION OF LABOR ASKS THEIR CO-OPERATION. All IJxc-ept Carpenters end Joiners to Refrain from Taking Ac- tion at Indianapolis Strike Settled mid the One at ('liltajjo to be in a NEW Aitril American Fed- eration ol Labor has issued an address "To the wage with Pro- gress in re all the carpenters ami juricrsj to refrain from action to sfciuv until the fii-'t great ft rustle has won.

If all trades strike, it will mean defeat for all, or at best only t mporary ad- vantage. Contributions from all are solicited and if the fund raised is not needed for the carpenters it will be devoted to aiding the next trade which is Felected to demand tbe concession. Sympathizers, who are not actual wage workers, are also invited to con- tribute. It was hoped that the ample notice given, the apparent justice of the demand, and the peaceable method of its presentation, would have caused the concession to be gracefully yielded, but the hostile attitude of the bo.-s builders at Chicago and Indianapolis is evi- dence that ths employers intend to make a stubborn resistance. In view of this, the workingmen must stand all the closer to- gether and concentrate their efforts as above recommended. Contributions should be sent to Christopher Evans, secretary of the Fed- eration, Xo. 21 Clinton place, New York. The address is signed by Samuel Gcmpers, president; William Martin, first vice presi- dent; P. J. McGuire, second vice president, and Henry Enxrich, treasurer. A NEW PETITION. Tho Men Want an Agreement Without a Strike. PiTTSEcr.G. April committee of em- ployes called on Superintendent Turner of the Pittsburg, Cincinnati and St. Louis rail- road 3'esterday. They represented the Brotherhood of Pvailrond Trainmen also, and left a petition for the consideration of tha Pennsylvania company officials. The new list of grievances requests that ten hours or less be considered a day; five hours or less a half day; all overtime to be paid for on the same basis: the pay asked is, day conduc- tors day brakemen night con- ductors night brakemen one hour be allowed for dinner; no crew to work short handed or be eipocted to coal or sand an engine. The committea will not insist on any other concessions. S. E. Wilkenson, grandmaster of tha Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, stated that ha did not believe there will any trouble in adjusting tie differences. "In any event a strike will be resorted to only af- ter every other means has failed." Am Appliance to Makv Stallu. AtJGtrsTA, Ga., April It i Jackson, a well-known lawyer, has perfected j mechanical appliances for making bagging for cotton from the cotton stalk. Experts I say the new bagging is in every respect equal to cotton or jute bagging. Mr. Jackson will utilize the bare stalks from the fields and can afford to pay about two dollars a ton laid down. An annual stalk yield will bale a three years' cotton crop. The machinery comprises heavily-weighted corrugated rollers with vats of running water, carding machines and bagging looms. It is estimated that in making bajrsing from cotton stalks annually will go into the pockets of the farmers for -.vhat is now cleared from the fields at an espeiwe. Augusta will be the headquarters for tfcs company's mills and offices, which will ex- tend from Virginia to Texas. The cotton stock bagging is less inflammable and is only a shade darker than jute. Cotton here are jubilant. A Settlement in Sight- CHICAGO, April arbitration com- mittee from the new BOGS Carpenters' asso- ciation met ths conference committee of the striking carpenters' yesterday. A thorough canvass of the situation showed that all par- ties are agreed that the carpenters' strike can be quickly brought to a termination when the membership of the Bosses' associa- tion is so far increased that they hold a bal- ance of power among the builders and bosses of the city. To this end the committee on arbitration invite the other associations of carpenters" bosses and builders to unite with them in the settlement of the question. THE SPORTING WOULD. Indianapolis Strike Settled. IXDIAXAPOLIS, April carpenters1 strike settled to the satisfaction of everybody concerned at a conference yester- day between committees of the strikers and the bosses. The contractors conceded tho eight-hour day and made an agreement, to hold good for one year, to pay competent and joiners 50 cents per hour. Tbe demand of the strikers was S5 cents an hour, j-lthough they had only been getting from 30 to 23 cents. About 500 men trill re- sume work to-day. The Monument. Hendrichs monument committee has received notice of tbe arrival at New York of the Hendricks monument complete from Tb-ere are ninety crates of granite and four crates of and the total weight is over 3X) tons.
