NEW YORK, THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1890. NO. 36 FIFTY-FIRST COXGP.ESS. THE TARIFF DEBATE RESUMED IN THE SENATE. sot.V A LENGTHY SPEECH JiK. VEST Mr. Kluiiie's Reciprocity I'olit-y Criticised. No Progress Made With thb Kill Owing to the Absence cf a The House Considers the Sundry CiUI Ap- propriation Bill and Agrees to Some of the Senate Amendments. WASHINGTON, July the senate yesterday, after routine business, Mr. Aldrich moved to proceed to the consider- ation of the tariff bill, but Mr. Gray an- tagonized it with a motion to take up the house bill for the transfer of the revenue marine service to the navy department. Mr. Gray's motion 26; nays, 25. Mr. Cockrell continued U-, argument in opposition to the bii. 'e imputed the origin of the bill to th ambi- tion of Senator Ghana.- >.heu secretary of the navy, and said that it was now be- ing pressed by those who would be bene- fited. He quoted from Admiral Porter's report against the transfer, and said the British government had tried the experi- ment and it had been a failure. The ser- vice would be better as it is now. Mr. Cockrell had, not concluded his re- marks when 2 o'clock arrived and the pre- siding officer laid the tariff bill before the senate as "the unfinished business." Mr. Gray moved to continue the dis- cussion oi the revenue marine bill. He, as well as Senators Cullom and Butler, said they did not wish to antagonize the tariff bill, but they wanted the revenue bill disposed 'cf. Mr. Dawes opposed the motion and criti- cised the persistency of the friends of the revenue marine bill in pressing it in the face of the tariff bill. Mr. Frye said the friends of the revenue bill had occupied but an hour and a half in its discussion, but its opponents had monopolized the time in talking against it. He thought it a form of filibustering which showed the necessity of a previous question rule in the senate by which de- bate could be, stopped. Mr. Morrell hoped that the friends of the revenue marine bill would allow the tariff bill to be taken up. He thought the revenue marine bill ought to be re- ferred to the finance committee. After some further discussion, Mr. Gray's mo- tion was rejected and the tariff bill was taken up, Mr. Vest addressing the senate in opposition to it. Mr. Vest said that the advocates of high tariff taxation were confronted by a great peril. The depression of agricultural in- terests, and the emphatic demands of the farmers for something besides lying sta- tistics and frothy declamatious. had caused President Harrison and Mr. Elaine to urge upon congress subsidies for steam- ships and reciprocity treaties in the South American states to obtain a foreign mar- ket for American products. At last, therefore, the protectionists had been drawn from their pretense, humbug about the home market, and were forced to adopt the principles of free commercial intercourse. The high priests of protec- tion were now burning incense on the altars of free trade. Mr. Vest expressed the hope that the census noif being taken by Superintendent Porter would be more accurate than the statements contained in an article written by him and published in The American Economist to prove to the farmers that they were being robbed for their own benefit. He quoted also from articles by the statistician of the agricultural department and the secretary of agriculture on the Same subject which he said were even more unique. The latter in his article, speaks of the ruinous competition to the American farmer which comes from the peasant of Europe, the fellah of Ecrypt, and the byst of India. Mr. Vest snid that the fact was that none of these laborers com- peted in this market with the American laborer. We imported barley from Can- ada, but that was because it was an abso- lute necessity to the brewers of America. What the farmers wanted, said Sir. Vest, was the opening and enlargement of for- eign markets for their surplus wheat, corn, cattle and pork, and the decrease of tariff duties on hardware, clothing, tin aud other necessary articles of daily and incessant use by the farmer and his family. He spoke of the proposed duties on farm products as an attempt to protect Ameri- can farmers against a competition that did not exist. The proposition to reduce the rate on rice and rice flour was. he thought, a brutal discrimination made against the rice planter" of the South, be- cause tlify voted the Democratic ticket. The proposed increase cat tie. when no cattle imported for any but breeding purposes. Mr. as a bold humbug. The same pretense was seen, he said.

WASHINGTON, July Under the rules yesterday should have been devoted to the consideration of District of Columbia busi- ness in the house and the Atkinson rail- road bill is the unfinished business. Mr. Cannon antagonized it with a mo- tion to go into committee of the whole upon the amendments to the sundry civil appropriation bill. The motion prevailed. The recommendations of the committee on appropriations were agreed to without much contention, the principal the senate irrigation item being passed over until the other matters are disposed of. Mr. Canton of Illinois made a strong effort to throw into conference senate amendment increasing the appropriation for publication of the official records of the war of the rebellion from to but was defeated. The house de- cided to concur, all the Democrats, with a few exceptions, and a large number of Republicans voting to agree to the amend- ment. Without disposing of all the amend- ments the committee rose and the house, at p. m., adjourned, NEW YORK'S NEW BALLOT LAW. A Serious Point Which Causes Attorney General Tabor Some Uneasiness. ALBANT, July 29. Attorney General Tabor said yesterday that he would give no more opinions to cities of the state upon the various sections of the ballot re- form bill. He says that they all have cor- poration counsels with enough intelli- gence to give such opinions, and he will allow such officials to decide for their own cities. Queries from villages will be an- swered with a copy of his full diagonosis of the law. In answer to a question as to how many sample ballots should be printed, he said that the number of ballots to be thus printed is not specified in the act, and it is, therefore, to be left to the judgment of the county clerks to determine how many shall be printed for such a purpose. A serious question has risen both in Brooklyn, Buffalo and Albany, which the attorney general says he may have to take official cognisance of and give an opinion. It is a question upon two sections, one of which reads that a voter may have ten minutes in a booth to prepare nis ballot, and the other which reads that he may spoil three ballots aud still have another. It is argued by one side that the section means ten minutes for each ballot, and that a dozen voters could thus waste eight hours, preventing others from voting. The other claim is that a voter can only use ten minutes altogether. Attorney General Tabor says it is the most serious question that has yet arisen. An official opinion will soon be given. ANNIE GOODWIN'S MURDERERS. The Notorious McGonigal and Shaw Held for Trial Without Bail. NEW YORK, July The coroner's jury inquiring into the cause of the death of Annie Goodwin, the unfoitunafs cisarette girl, came in with their verdict shortly after 3 o'clock yesterday. They found that Annie Goodwin had died on Juiv J2, at the residence of Mrs. Shaw, Ii7 East One Hundred and Fifth street, ss the result of an abortion performed by Dr. Me Goniiral. They found Mrs. Shaw an before the fact, as was also Gus Hsrrison and Coachman Davis accessories after the fact.. They severely censured Undertaker Merritt. The were brought before the coroner.

July County Gr.-md Army Tvpular quarterly liilt hntti Army Men. tchestcr their Great SufiVrlng Among FisLcrsueii on Irish Women Held Caf tires in Turkish Starving Under Britiuh to be Expelled from the Liquor Traffic in Africa. LONDON, July sad slory of dis- tress from poverty and the harsh enforce- ment of law comes from the Irish coast. The fishiim season has been bad, and many of the dwellers on Blasket Island on the Kerry coast were unable fco pay their rent at the appointed day. A gunboat there- upon landed the sheriff, 30 bailiffs and 100 police on the island, and the possj seized the boats of the unfortunate fishermen. As the gunboat departed with the only means of livlihood of the half-starved population, the scene was a heart-rending one. The desparing fathers and husbands gazed gloomily at the receding vessel, while the children and women folk wailed and cried aloud in their anguish. An eye witness says that the people are absolutely destitute and many must perish unless relief is sent. Women Abducted for Turkish Harems. Much excitement exists in the south of Russia over the story, brought by a Rus- sian woman escaped from a Turkish harem at Rizah, that many Russian women, de- coyed or abducted from their native coun- try, are prisoners in harems. There seems to be little doubt of the truth of the woman's statement, as it is customary for Turkish agents to attend Russian fairs held in towns near the frontier, and after the fairs peasant women are often re- ported missing, although, owing to the humble station of the parties, the author- ities have never made such inquiry, if, in- deed, Russian officials do not share in the nefarious traffic. Zulus Perishing of Starvation. Terrible starvation is represented as ex- isting under British rule in Zululand. The natives are perishing of hunger in a country which ought to be productive, and the scant aid given bythe British gov- ernment in the way of rations has afforded but slight relief. The once powerful na- tion of Zulus is now a mere wreck. The latest returns show that out of the men in the English home army are under 21 years of age. To Expel Jews from Russia. A Vienna dispatch says that an ukase is impending in Russia for the expulsion of the Jews, numbering from that country. This action is said to be con- templated as the only means of putting an end to the constant strifes between the poorer classes of citizens and peasants and the Hebrews growing out of money trans- actions and race hatreds. The dispatch adds that the Rothschilds are urging France to use her influence with Russia for the prevention of the threatened ex- pulsion. Prohibition in Africa. The English Royal Niger .company has prohibited the importation or sale of in- toxicating liquor in its African territory north of the seventh parallel of north latitude. The officials of the company state their convictions that the profits growing out of the liquor traffic are much more than cancelled by the pecuniary losses resulting from the demoralization among the natives and whites caus'ed by the of liquor. They do not claim to be actuated by moral motives, but are proceeding on business principles. The floor of the workshop at Eupen col- lapsed yesterday, throwing one hurdred employes into the cellar, where they v.vre overwhelmed with debris. Two" killed and many injured, several cf vdli die. An American aimed Skinner and a Rus- sian named hive started on a wager to riue on from Mos- cow to the Crimea ana NEW YORK REPUBLICAN CLUBS. Tin- Stuto Convention to be Held at Sept. 4.

A committee of three, consisting of Col. McAlpm, Mr. Wynkoop aud Mr. DePey- fcter appointed to select speakers for the occasion. To another committee of 1 hree con- sisting of Messrs. McAlpin, Pierson and Smith was delegated the power to arrange all the minor details of the convention. J. L. De Peyster offered the following resolution: Resolved, that this committee endorse the principles embodied in tho federal election bill and urge its speedy passage. It was adopted unanimously. John I. Davenport then spoke at some length upon the good points of the meas- ure and explained the advantages to be derived from it. Coiibiderable discussion was had relative to abolishing the dues of the various clubs. It was finally decided best to con- tinue the system as in force at present. The question of how many delegates each club will be required to send to the con- vention was not fully determined upon, but it was thought that three would be the limit. A meeting to formulate a call for the convention will be held tomorrow. FROM SOUTH AMERICA. k HISTORY OF THE CAUSES OF THE REBELLION. KNIGHTS OF PYTHIAS CONVENTION. Election of Prize Drill To-Day.

As Governor of Matti-rs to Suit Himself Until Deponed by PrcHltleiit Menden.lez, When He liaises the Revolutionary Flag, Sur- rounded by His ii Finally Captured by Strategy. ALBAVT, July following true statement of the exact status of the affair between Gui.tfmala and Salvador is made public in the Press and Knickerbocker to- day. It is from the pen of Frederick W. White who has just returned from those countries He .says: "The reported assassination of President Barrillos and the joining of Gen. Rives' Indians to Ezeta's forces in Salvador suggests to one familiar with existing af- fairs in Central America the ultimate downfall of Barrillo? of Guatemala. If Gen. Rive? is free, and with his Indians is in sympathy with the provisional presi- dent Ezeta. it means for Salvador an al- most imsi-tible force. A I'Jrturesque Character. Gen. Rives is the most picturesque char- acter in the five republics. He made Mendenuez president of Salvador, depos- ing the treacherous Zaldivor, who de- camped with a couple of million in gold. This happened directly after the great Barrios in 1S65 started on his unsuccessful mission to subjugate Central America and make Guatemala supreme. With Menden- dez president, as a matter of course under the new regime Rives was very close to the throne and took as his reward the governorship of the province of Guscalten, the capital of which is Cojutepeque. It is but twelve leagues from San Salvador and less than a day's ride from the president's palace. It is a rich province, populated principally by Indians, difficult to man- age and fighters of tremendous dash. Here Gen. Rives held a court of his own. Governor Rives Deposed. President Mendendez submitted to this for a long until necessity compelled him in January last to mildly and temerously inform Gen. Rives that he must not do as he, Rives, wished, but as the government wished. Rives paid no attention to this demand and when Men- dendez appointed a new governor of Gas- cultan "for the better welfare of the re- Governor Rives called his 8.000 Indians about him and raised the flag of revolution. This was the beginning of the present trouble. It promised to em- broil the entire country. President Bog- ran showed the seriousness of the move- ment and paid tribute to the power and prowess of Rives by telegraphing that Honduras had men ready to march to Salvador and assist the government in putting down the rebellion, while Barril- los stood ready to aid with forces from The compact between the presidents is perfect on this one point. But Rives by strategy was captured and his Indians would not fight without him. The Cen- tral Americans are hero worshippers. With a leader they have faith in, they will fisht like demons: without they are as children. When the Paves row was going on, of which the present trouble is the continuation. the writer of lhL-5 artic'. was in Honduras and hastened at once to Salvador, hoping to witness some lively events, but the day he arrived Rives had been taken and quiet was restored. It was to the president's weakness on this occasion that bis life was not taken. He was an amiable, good old man and would not shoot the revolutionist. Had Rives committed the political crime in Honduras or Guatemala he would in- stantly have paid the penalty. Shot Down Like Dogs.

BOMB-THROWER MOONEY. The Irish Agitator Supposed to HftTe Been Drotrnecl at Eockaway Beach. _ NEW YOB-. July Sun says that it seems probable that the man known aa John J. Murray who wag drowned at Far Rockaway beach on Sunday last Thomns Mooney. tbe Irish agitator and bomb-thrower. The personal appearance ot the drowned man tallies closely with Mooney. and it is known that while at Far Rockaway he was visited by O'Dono- van Rossa. Mooney is the man who, in 18S3, threw a phosphorous bomb on board the steam- ship Queen while she was lying in her dock here. The deck caught fire, but the flames were extinguished before much damage had been done. Mooney was ar- rested for the crime. He was afterward pronounced insane and sent to an asylum but was afterward released. Died from Want of Xo CHICAGO. July inquest was held on the body of Mrs. Caroline Glazier, at No. 628 Wells street, Monday. When the old wcman died suddenly Sunday nigtt the valise, which was tied under the pil- low on her bed, was opened and wiihin were found books and papers proving her to have been the possessor of a fortune of largely in mortgages. There are no relatives in the city to monrn her death. A person at the inquest said: "In- deed, only one of her kin is known to be living, a sister now in Bavaria. Mrs. Glazier and her husband came to the city in 1848 and lived in a frugal manner, Since her husband's death last Mrs. Glazier has lived in a miserly fash- ion. Sometimes she would" not buy enough to eat. I believe she died from' want of proper nourishment." Determined to Take Her IJfe, CotUMErs, Ind..
