   Olean Democrat, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1890, Olean, New York                               SIXTEEN PAGES. pAdeii The Olean Democrat. VOL. XI. OLEAN, CATTARAUGUS CO.- NEW YORK, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1890. NO. 43 SHIPOWNERS RETALIATE. A NEW PHASE IN THE STRIKE SITU- ATION AT SOUTHAMPTON. The Dock the Dock and Declare Their Relations With the Men ut un End The Strike Now Threatens to Hccume a National Military May be Needed to Quell LONDON, Sept. that the dock companies at Southampton, disgusted by the conduct of the strikers in agreeing to work and then failing to do so on account of quarrels among their various unions, have closed the dock and peremptorily ended all relations between themselves and the men, the situation of affairs has assumed an entirely changed aspect. In- stead of the new move on the part of the companies being wholly detrimental to the interests of the strikers, it has in one important respect improved their posi- tions for upon learning of the lockout the London executive of the dockers' union decided that if the masters did not recede from their new standpoint, the union would indorse the Southampton strike and support the men with all the resources at its command. Thus the masters have procured for the strikers what the latter had been unable to obtain for unqualified support of one of the strongest labor organiza- tions in existence. The affair will now become a national instead of a local struggle. The Military May be Needed. _ Mr. Stanhopes, secretary for war, has given orders to the military to furnish all the force needed to maintain the peace in Southampton, and it is not improbable that their services will be needed, for the dis- employed union men are quite desperate, and assaults upon non-unionists are fre- quent. It is needless to say that these acts of violence are severely condemned by the leaders of the strike, who fally rea- lize the great harm done to the cause of labor by such conduct. But the men in- clude many rough characters who cannot be controlled. Buried With Public Honors. The body of Councillor Rossi, who was murdered by the Radical agitator Cas- tiglione during the recent popular revolt at Beilinzona Ticino, Switzerland, was buried yesterday with public honors. His colleague, Respini, who was kept a pris- oner to protect him from the angry popu- lace, has been liberated but is in danger of his life, owing to the still irritated con- dition of public feeling. The cauton is outwardly tranquil and the approaching election under the supervision of the federal authorities will probably pass off peaceably. The prospects are that the Liberal faction, who inaugurated the re- volt, will triumph at the polls and accom- plish their aim of overthrowing the old Clerical-Conservative regime. Not So Bad as Pictured. The Dublin correspondent of The Times says that there is no danger of any suffer- ing in Ireland before Christmas; that the failure of the potato harvest is far from general, and that other crops are better than the average. He asserts that boards of poor law guardians and other bodies are attempting to create unjustifiable appre- hensions of famine, with the view of iu- flueucing public opinion in Great Britain and abroad, and of representing the con- dition of Ireland as much worse than it really is. The Scotch coal miners have made a de- mand for an advance of 1 shilling per in their wages. The masters have not yet replied to the notice. The memorial to Bishop Berkley will be unveiled to-day in Cloyne cathedral. A LINEMAN'S FRIGHTFUL DEATH. Another Victim of the Deadly Electric Light Wires.

But the victim was past ail help and died before he reached the hospital, whit her he was taken as soon as possible.

WIDOWED AND IN JAIL. Mrs. Eva Hamilton Greatly Affected by the News of Her Husband's Death. TBEXTON, N. J., Sept. Matron Wilson of the state prison in- formed Mrs. Hamilton yesterday morning of the death of her husband, Mr. Robert Ray Hamilton, but could give no par- ticulars other than were printed in the morning papers. Mrs. Hamilton on learning the news, seemed greatly affected and burst into tears and begged to be left alone with her sorrow. Later the prison ph3'sician visited her cell to prescribe for her extreme nerv- ousness. Shortly afterwards Keeper Pat- terson visited her cell when she talked to him more confidentially than she ever did since her incarceration. Some weeks ago she requested the keeper to try and find Hamilton and to make overtures to him. The keeper tried to locate him through friends in New York but failed. A petition for the par- don of Mrs. Hamilton has been before the court of pardons of New Jersey and she wanted Ray Hamilton informed of the fact that if he not interfere with her pardon she would not further resist his application for divorce, all she wanted was her liberty and the custody of the child now in Philadelphia.

He Says the Full ot the I'olicy Will Not be lirnliittl Iinmcdliitrlr, but Should bo Practically Claims Thill the Deft-at of Kocijn ocity Opens Opportunity for Free Reciprocity the Safeguard of Protection. NEW Yor.K, Sept. following is Secretary Blaiue's reply to an invitation from the Boot ;uid Shoe club of Bo-ton to attend their annual banquet in October: BAR HARBOR, Me., Sept. 15. Col. W. W. Clapn, Editor Boston Journal Boston: MY DEAR nra in receipt of your favor asking me it' I attend the annual banquet of Ihe Boot and Shoe club of Bos- toa in October. You add that the mem- bers are "in hearty sympathy wLh my views regarding: the best method of ex- tending American trade, and would be glad to have me address them." I regret that my engagements will not permit me to accept the invitation, but you will please thank th'j club for the compliment they pay me. I am glad to hear that the the members of the club are interested in a system of reciprocal trade v, ithLatiu- America. They can do great good by counteract in a certain phase of Xeiv England opinion, entertained nt home as well as opinion which I must rejcav i as in she highest degree un- wise and hurtful to New England in- terests. New England is to receive in the new tariff the amplest protection for every manufacturing industry within her bor- der, botii great and small, and it will, in my judgment, be both inexpedient and injurious for representatives to disre- gard a which will promote west- ern interests. I have lately received a letter from Mr. J. F. Imbs of St. Louis, a leading repre- sentative of the flour interests and presi- dent of the late convention of millers at Minneapolis. Speaking for the grain and flour interests of that great section, Mr. Imbs says that: Advices of recent date from Cuba state, that the duties now col- lected on American flour are at a higher rate than was first supposed to be the case. And he adds: "I respectfully submitted that the American miller will be unable to retain any part of the Cuban flour trade unless immediate relief is se- cured." In view of these facts, is it possible that a protectionist congress can even think of opening our markets to Cuba products free, while allowing a great western in- dustry to be absolutely exclude-! from her markets by a prohibitory tariff? With reciprocity the West can annually sell many hundred thousand barrels of flour in the markets of Cuba and Porto Rico, together with a large mass of other agri- cultural products. Without reciprocity, she will be driven more and more from those markets. Giving the fullest protection to all east- ern interests as the proposed tariff bill does, surely no man of good judgment, certainly no protectionist of wise forecast, wishes to expose a western interest to serious injury, especially when it is mani- festly easy to protect it and promote manifestly easy because at this very time the boards of trades, the chambers of com- merce and the public opinion in Havana are demanding reciprocal trade with the United States. I select. Cuba and Porto Rico for exam- ples, in certain quarters it has been said that while we might secure rec- iprocity with some little countries in South America, we could do nothing with the Spanish islands. Let us at least give the Spanish an opportunity to speak for Certain wise men ask: How can we sell products in South America wlu-n the things arc pro- duced there? Cereals are undoubtedly grown in the southern portions of South America, but the wise men will remember that cereals and sugar do not grow in tlip soil, and that the sugar countries of South and Central America and the India islands contain of people who import the largest part of their bread- Indeed, the largest part of the -near product of Latin-America is at our doors, and we can greatly enlarge our ex- there it congress will give us the opportunity for reciprocal trade. Another class that they want time to study the system. To I might reply that the method of Mr.c'yinir a is to observe its practi- cal While in the and refusing to some obj-ct tln-se propose to n ir.-irkft to Ijititi-Amenca's of .ill clmrire. witboi.t asking uiflc.-i to uive us in turn snm- freedom :h-ir ninrkft. lie v-ojj "I'.iateiv ws- e 'Ktrnr qi'f-Minn. we make ;n a a nift of f'vit When -re tbst lesMin we Fh.ill be pre- Tf i for ibe ml. f worst i r n  p on. n' will kindly con1-'' r to us reciprorsl trade m: tie van tape thfrn-s1 Ivcfc of ttr.-Mi'ms .1 f.-ivor to Spam t are HSK for a favor to rri" l wh" tsk-- bel" to tl.at of rnnrdiHns of pr erty -who strong lock r the Stft7ile the h'V-c srone, I do riot mean. 171 timg I have to itrply that reciprrwi'i only n interest. I rftnarke'i ID a note to F rye. n pr >ve and both to the 'aim and tbe <-hrr j V l.at. for instance, couid be more nat- j fr n.r.re ttan that, in giving market in the United to from the Argentine Republic, we sbonid ask the Argentine Republic to better markets than now have for tfet orodnct of leather from United bus i re  i c ivrccity propi Tu" ht-i t i t'l-s ti.i'oifihc't; t 'i" i., it. ho-tn toil, it is that ;ha free trade senators and the f rei; papers have H Fjn-fific reason for their course. Tuey v and feel that with a system of r inr >nty estab- lished and growing, tiif-ir of free trade receives a most seivji-i how. The protectionist who opposes reciprocity in the form in which it is now presented knocks away one of the strongest supports of his system. The enactment of reciproc- ity is the safeguard of protection. The defeat of reciprocity is the opportunity of free trade. Yours very respectfully, JAMES G. BLAINE. KILLED BY A STREET CAR. A Man Falls from One Car and is Ron Over by Another. BTTFFALO, car No. 12 of the Virginia belt line while bound down Main street the Lackawanna depot last night was boarded at the Iro- qnois hotel by P. H. Brady, a traveling agent for G. Sidenberg Co.. fancy dry goods dealers of New York, who was on his way to take the Lackawanna train for New York. Just as the car reached the Central crossing below Exchange street, Mr. Brady arose from his seat and went to the front door of the car, and leaning for- ward, asked the driver to hurry his horses a little as he wanted to catch the train. What happened then no one knows for certain, but Mr. Brady was either thrown or fell off the car, his head falling across the up tracks of the road and directly in front of the Cold Spring car. Before any one could give warning the wheels passed over the unfortunate man's bead, crush- ing it at the forehead so terribly that the brains and blood spurted all over the tracks. Capt. Quinn and Sergt. Reagan of the First precinct, who were close by at the time, rushed to the man's assistance. An ambulance was called and was quickly on the scene, and everything was done to Bave the man's life, but he died before he reached the hospital. Mr. Brady was well known to the dry goods trade here, and was held in high esteem by the many friends who knew him. He leaves a widow and family of children living in New York. PENNSYLVANIA DEMOCRATS. Annnal Meeting; of the Uemocratic of Officers. READING, Pa., Sept. annual meeting of the Democratic Societies of Pennsylvania, held here yesterday, was fully attended. Democrats of note from all portions of the state were present. Messrs. Pattison, Black and Barclay, tbe candidates of the party respectively for governor, lieutenant governor and secre- tary of internal affairs, were on hand early. The convention of the societies was called to order in the Grand Opera house at 1 o'clock. About 1.000 delegates were present. Chauncey F. pre- sided and opened the proceedings with an address of considerable le'iccth. Pittsburg was selected as the next place of meetinsr.

P., to Ire- land is connected with probability of his to Mr. 15 ilfotir ia the office of chief MTrKnry for Ireland. No change in the is likely to be considered until Smith :-.nd Lord Salisbury have conferred after the of LaBourboul-'. Mr. Jack-.'in not only a capable man. but he i< also one who likes tounite pleas- ure at this time of the year with and in Ireland he has much official work and no responsibility. Among the anomolies of the Irish gov- ernment must be ranked the position of the secretary of the treasury as miui-ter of public works for Ireland. Now another trial is to be made at harbor, where, because of the system, sn much of the tax payers' good monev been cast useles-.sly into tke sea, Mr. Jack- son is the minister with whom Mr. PJII-- nell and other tax payers of Wick low have to deal. It is Mr. Jackson, ai-o. who has set in motion that light railways- act, the provisions of which are to mitigate some of the evils caused by potato blight and crop failure. These are the immediate objects of Mr. Jack- son's visit to Ireland. The Dttke of Devonshire's Health. The health of the Duke of Devonshire now a topic of talk among tbe still remaining in London. The duke i- in his 83rd year and the members of hi. family are very anxious as to the almost extreme feebleness of his health. Lori Harrington's succession to the house of lords iu the event of the detith of father the duke, would, it is said, be fol- lowed by a still adhesion to the Conservative party, though there is no present doubt that he would sit with Lord Derby and other friends on the Opposition side. It would be followed also by an un successful attempt on tbe part of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain to lead the dissident Liberals, by some of whom he is regarded with personal dislike and distrust. For :i time there would be a sort of dual ar- rangement with Sir Henry James, of whom, however, it is said that after an unsuccessful contest he will desire, should an opportunity offer, to end his political career in the house of lords, though it may be upon the woolsack. It transpires that the granting of the strikers' demands at Southampton wasbr advice of the Shipowners' federation, who compelled the local employers to tempor- ize with the men pending arrangement for a general lock-out, affecting all thf ports, when the federation shall have he- come invincibly organized. Respini Excited. Signor Respini, one of the members of the deposed Conservative government of Ticino, has gone to Berne, where he protesting against federal clemency for the leaders of the recent revolt. He is in a very excited frame of mind, and vov.s that he will return to Ticino and person- ally eject the rebels unless the federal government punishes them. Since his following was not powerful enough to protect him from overthrow and impris- onment, this, threat indicates the unbal- anc'ed nature of his mind. The federal authorities are acting coolly and firmly, and will doubtless bs able to maintain order :n the disturbed cann.n The troops arefarbidden to discuss with the citizens, and are thoroughly im- partial. An important arrest of counterfeiters has been made at Prussia, and tbe members of the irang are now on trial. Thirty-five thousand counterfeit coins, and a large quantity of forged notes and dividend warrants have been discovered. Some of the leaders of the criminals es- caped arrest.
