Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia ANTA A_ _3t_.Jt- m XXII. ATLANTA, GA., SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 13, 1890. PRICE FIVE CENTS. THE OHIO SEATS A BfVSDER a AS VZACEB jy jVERROR CAMPBELL IS CONFIDENT, the Republicans Claim that They Will District Act and Scoop in the Entire Dictation. OK, Septombor teeram from Governor Campbell, of Vo tonight, says the republican talk of the redBtnctmg act being unconstttuttohal, mcortect. The language of the new law as ilio exact copy of the redistricting 1' the republicans in 1886. A part of Storr'. Jnship m Hamilton county, is said to havo Elected in tbe act, and is not described anv congressional district. This part of township, Governor Campbell wires, beenincluded In tho second con- ional district, and although} not jtar- rnlariY mentioned fc still included. Gov- r Campbell will not call a special session Ttfae legislature, for ho thinks there ia no SHE REPUBLIC-ASS JUBILANT. On the other hand, the Ohio republicans -are enthusiastic on the sub- of having congress annul the act on -ait of this omission. While the iihhcans might have omitted its ttontion was not called to the fact, and they tis never too late to correct an error. ,Ut and perhaps twenty-one congressional .attire at stake, and Grosvenor, McKinley, tteed Cannon, Cabot Lodge and the others -re beside themselves with joy at the mere snccestion that they may he able to undo the remit of the last Ohio election. They are en- tbtunaataeally m favor of congressional inter- ference if a peg can be found upon which to iaug their case. TO ELECT AT LABQES. Wtienthey learned of Governor Campbell's statement tonight that the same error had oc- curred in every redistricting act sinco 1876, boy proclaimed triumphantly so much the Setter. Instead of restoring the old districts they would, if the report be correct, alter the Grosvenor resolution, which it is pro- to pass, so aa to provide for tho election of the entire twenty-one con- gressmen at largo on the general state ticket. This, they behe% e, -n ould make a solid repnb- 1 can delegation in the next house from the Buckeje" state. The Ohio democrats are not frightened. They look upon the talk as a prodigious bluff. They do not be- tove any mistake that the republicans can toae advantage of has been made. However, iie democrats have their eyes open, and if an attempt is made to paasj the Groavenor reso- lution in any shape, the brakes will be put ipon the tariff bill, and there will be another light similar to that by which the force bill vassenttoita grave. Thia, the democrats eliove, mil bring the republicans to their nses in short order, for they cannot 'ord to let the tariff bill die now. hite under the circumstances the democrats -e no fear that the republicans will drive 3agh such a resolution, at this late day, still tact that they are seriously considering it, to what desperate devices they would oort to save the next house. SBNATOB. PADDOCK'S PERFIDY. Senator Paddock, of Nebraska, ia the senato ho broke bis pair when the tariff bill was oted upon :n the senate. He was paired with onator Eustis, of Louisiana. Jlt waa expected Mr. Paddock would make an emanation to the senate, but he has failed to do so. "When about it privately today by Senator Faulkner, who has charge of pairs on the democratic side, be said he thought Senator present. He, however, has made EO public statement, and the vote stands, leav- ing Senator Eustis recorded as absent without paired. There is some indignation among the democrats because of Senator Pad- lock's failure to explain. To break a pair is considered a crime in the senate. THE WORK IN THE HOUSE. The house adjourned again today without doing anything. The journal of Tuesday still remams not approved. Beed is mad. He not listen to tbe democrats today, but temg unable to hold a quorum or to count one, was compelled to adjourn the house. Tonight Reed says bow ill have a quorum of -republicans on hand Monday, and Mr. Ten- able will have to go. The big tyrant ia not in the humor to allow democratic filibustering if he can prevent it. The tariff bill came over to the house today, and was sent to the ways and means commit- tee They will meet tomorrow and reporl back to the house Monday. Both parties want the bill hastened through, in order that ad- journment migbt be had early. However, the house democrats want a few hours for debate, to show up the worst features of tho bill. They can, however, all they want to say in one day, and it ig not probable the republicans will object to that. If they do, there will be trouble Tho democrats will resort to filibus- tering, and attempt to stave off the passage o; tlip bnl long enough to do some talking. Mr McMillan said tonight he thought there wonlc no trouble, and that tho hill would be dis- posed of finally and in the hands of the presi- dent by the 22d. In that event, adjournment probably be had by the 27th. _ GEORGIA POSTMASTERS. Georgia postmasters were appointed toda; S3 follows. E. F. Bazemoro, Bamah, Monroe 20011 ty; S. A.

'urmg the argument Mr. Gorman presented a slegrani front Senator McFhersoii, stating lat he indisposed and would not be able act as a member oE the conference comrait- eo on the tariff bill, and asking to be excused service. The request complied with, and Mr. foorhees wa-3 appointed conferee In the place i Mr McPherson. After Mr Morgan had spoken about two ours, the senate was addressed by Mr. Sanders EI favor of the adoption of the conference re- ort, the main point of hia contention being lat lauds actually granted to railroad compa- res could not he taken from them because tiey turned out to be mineral lands. Hearst took tho contrary view, and in- isted that mineral lands -were specially re- arved by the original granta'and must be kept or the use of tho people at large. Mr. Sanders said that in She courts of bra wn state, of the state of Qahfornia, and in supreme court of the United States, the eriir "minorul lands" had been held to mean ands commercially valued for mining pur- loses. _ Without concluding his argument, Mr. hau- lers yielded for a motion to proceed to execu- ive business, and at 0 o'clock p. m. adjourned.

The previous question was ordere'd. Yeas, .13; nays, 34, the clerk noting a and he question recurred on approval of the ournal. On the approval of the journal tlie [uorum disappeared, and a pall of the house was ordered. One hundred aud seventy-five members responded to their names, but on the approval of the journal these had dwindled ;o on motion of Mr. McKinley, at J 55 o'clock, the house adjourned. ITS FIRST MEETING For Some Time of the Ways and Moan Committee. TT, September morning, for the first timo in several months, tho ways and means committee Held a session The purpose was to discuss the treatment of the senate amend- ments to tho tariff bill, and the entire session was so consumed Aa the Mil itself had not reached the committee, no formal conclusion could be noted, and tbe proceeding were entirely confined ;o general discussion. On one point there seemed ;o be a practical agreement, and that was that the amendments should be considered by the commit- tee instead ot acceding at once to the request of ;he serate for a conference aa to how much time should be allotted to that proceeding. There seemed to be a diversity of opinion, but there waa L pronounced disposition on both republican and democratic Bides to hasten action in committee O8 much as possible. Ujon what timo the bill, hen enacted into a law, shall take effect as also discussed, but without result beyond the development of a strong individual belief that the date fixeil by tlio senate, October 1st, wastoo early to admit final action upon this bill and its dls- :nbution among en itoma officers of the country. Tbe committee will meet tomoirow and orocced formally to consider the bill and amend- ments which were referred to it by the house soon after tho committee adjourned. It 11 said by borne democratic members that the facility with which their party associates will lend themselves to republican'efforts to hasten tho final disposi- tion of the bill is conditional upon the programme which is to be adopted by tho republicans in the house for the rrmamdor of the session, and that if it should be attempted to yass the threatened resolution to interfere with Ohio districts as es- tablished by the lastgerrynmnder or force through other pronotmc-ed paitlsan measures, resort will be had to all parliamentary means to obstruct the tarlif bill. ANOTHER SCHEME. OFTtiE ASSASSINATZQIf OF GBNERAX, WITHIN SIGHT OF OUR WAR SHIPS. Guatemalan Officers Board tbe Ship and Present an Chases tlte and Shot. NEW YORK, September Pacific mail steamer, which reached this port today, brought from tho isthmus pome of the passengers who were on board the steamer "Acapuleo" at the time of the killing of Gen- eral ISarrundia by the Guatemalan officers while the "Acapulco" lay in the harbor of San Jose. The Associated Press is indebted to an eye witness of for the following narra- ivo. "The steamer, left San Fran- isco August 13th. On arrival at Acapulco, :ico, General Barrundia, ex-minister of war of Guatemala, camo on board from the Starbuck, a sister Bhip. Ho was knountobe ostile to the present government of Guate- mala, and it was understood that 10 was on the way to Salvador. He vas attended by two body guards. When he ship ariived at Champerico, Guatemala, be authorities, who had been warned that ?arxundia was on board, jjt once sent off two >on.t loads of soldiers, rmd demanded that the ;oneral be surrendered to them. Captain refused to accede to this demand. WITHHOLDING THE CAPTAIN'S PAPERS. An attempt was made to coerce him by with- tolding his clearance pppers; hut, after a de- ention of twenty-four Pitts >ersistsng in his refusal to deliver Barrundia, vithout an order from the vessel was permitted to resume her conrse, This was August 27th, and on the evening of lie same day the steamer arrived at San Jose. No sooner had the boat lauded than two boatloads of soldiers were sent off from the shore to keep close watch that no one without .he proper credentials should leave the vessel 'or the shore. Within, pistol shot of ;ho Acapulco lay were two United A Bill to Reaulate the Division of States Into Congressional Districts. INOTOV, September Burton of Ohio, today introduced iu the a bill to reflate the division of states of the union into congressional districts. Tlie bill provides that within twelve months after the passnpe of an apportionment act the states shall be divided into consrosaional districts b> a districting 1 oard in each btate, composed of tour resident memtiers wo of eacb political party, to be appointed by the o-ovornora. The districts are to consist of con- tieumis territory, and no district is to have more than one member. A district is not to be divided, unless its population exceeds by one- tenth the numlfer ne'cessary to entitle it to a rep- resentative, except ia a state electing representa- tives by towns, and no district is to contain more than one-twentieth, more orless, inhabitants than the number necessary to entitle it to a representa- tive The districts are to be composed of compac territory, bounded, as nearly as may be, by civi subdivisions or natural boundaries. There is to be a national board of five mem four politically divided, and the other a ludce of the supreme, district or .circuit TJmtei States courts, appointed by the president and confirmed by the senate to act, in case of failure to act or disagreement of stats boards. The die tric'ts made hy these boards are to remain intact until the next census apportibnment. The Sort's Cotton Eeview.

SIGN1 THE OBUEIt. Th'e next day the ship was again invaded the commandant of a special force of men, accompanied by another boatload of soldiers. This' time tho Guatemalan officers came fur- nished with an "order of signed by the American minister, Mizner.

Spot cotton is quiet, Tlie Yellow Fine Convention. ST. LODJS, September second day's ses- sion of the yellow pine manufacturers' convention waa called to order this evening. Reports of the committee of trades and standard, which favored a uniform standard of grades and thickness to covern all the mamitrcturers represented in the convention, was read and adopted. The name ot thti association was then changedto "The Southern. Lumbermen's Manufacturers' Association. ______________ __ Then the commandant directed that all the cabin passengers be ordered below. "When this order had been executed, a force of Guatemalan officers proceeded to Bar- rundia, Captain Pitts with them. As soon as the room was reached, Captain Pitts, after deprecating the necessity of surrendering his passenger to thoAuthonties, began to lead the order lor the. general's arrest. BABRUNUIA lyBFENDS HTMSKLF. Barrundia hod quietly met them at the door, but afc once divining that all was over, he reached into his room for his revolvers, and making the remark, "Very fired. The ball just missed Captain Pitts, who, to- gether with the commandant, ran, leaving tho man to special officers. Barrundui was a short-sighted man, and being very nervous ho was unable to do any damage, though be chased them in and out of the saloon, firing wildly. At last the officers dropped lain from different points, riddled with shot, on the hur- ricane deck. The brave commandant thereupon came from his hiding place, walked up to the dead man and fired into his skull. Tho dead body was rolled up in a piece of canvas, and aid being summoned from the other beat, as the --ral waa a very heavy man, the ghastly __ entvas bundled down the gangway into one of the boats and conveyed ashore, to bo sent to Guatemala, where ic was interred the next day. INSULTED THE AMERICANS. The other boat conveying tbe gallant perpe- trators of the deed, their revolver? openly dis- played in their hands, mnde a detour round by the United States war ships on their way to the shore. As they left the ship some smilingly waved their hands, and one placed his thumb to his nose and extended the other fingers in a familiar and well-known Still the incident was not over. The Guate- malans bad to wipe their feet a little more on the suffering she was not allowed to proceed until tho baggage belonging to Bar- rundia hadgbeen searched, presumably foi evi- dence in criminating others. This was sub- mitted to, the gunboata still silent and sleepy, not 100 yards awiy. Indeed, all the time of the tracedy an" officer from one of them was aboard the Acapulco. SEARCHING BABRUNDIA'S BAGGAGE. When General Barrundia had first come aboard, his baggage had been searched and his arms, consisting of two revolvers, a sword and dagger had been taken charge of. But somehow, after the affray, six other revolvers and about forty rounds of cartridges were found. His body at the commence- ment of the fighting, had run below and been locked up for safety. About forty shots were fired in all. Finally, the disagreeable affair was at an end, at least for the time being, and the steamer was allowed to proceed. THE AMERICANS INDIGNANT. The Americans on board were full of indig- nation and shame at the whole affair. Ugly rumors were afloat about blood money, as though money had. had influence some- where in securing the surrender of the man. Many passengers openly expressed regret that the American, flag was theirs. Captain Pitts, it was generally held, was partly excusable forhis accion, seeing be had applied, in vain to war ships for assistance, and that he was confronted with an order from the American minister. A1 the same _time the feeling prevailed that had the captain shown the same firmness at San Jose as he did at Champerico, the man would not have been sliot. The passengers condemned the action of the men-of-war who had been appealed to for holp and refused it, for they maintain that in any events they have "taken charge of Barrnndia untL some proper ami definihr expression of will had coma from Washington. Xhey also condemn the action of Minister Mizner, who, they thought, had no right to sign a man's death warrant by tbe scratch of his name (for they submit that at the time he did it he knew it amounted to no matter what the char aeter of the victim. They that the American flag should protect them wherever it may be unfurled and not be made a bywory telegraph with each other or with thB national government.

THE INQUIRY ABOUT TO END And Mr. Cooper Has Failed to Prove His Charges. N, September special com- mittee of tho house, appointed to investigate the charges against Commissioner Kaum, mat at the tension building tins morning for the purpose of taking the testimony ot 133 clerka, who, it waa charged, had received promotion by reason of their purchasing stock in tho Universal Eef rigor- atlng Company. AH the members were pres- ent with the exception of Mr. Goodnight. Tho committee, however, decided not to call [any of the clerks for examination, for the following reasons, which were entered on tlie record at ;he direction of the committee. General Raum requested the committee to Bub- pena every employe of tha pension department who lias been promoted under hia idmlniBtration of offic6, to disprove the charge ;hat any1 of sucib employes" have purchased tock in the Universal Refrigerating Company, or jeen 'promoted by reaaon thereof, ThQ committee declined to comply with nls re- Mesbra.

LITTLE SOLDIERS AND BIG SOLDIERS. The Divided Councll'of tho Pottawatomie Indians. TOPEKA, Kaus., has been received here that a-council of the prairie band of the Pottawatomies held a few days ago on the reservation in Jackson county, in this state, frniinitcd in a row tn which tlxres of the leaders were JulleO, and several others injured. There are two bands one Itnown as the "Little of all Indians, and the other knows an "Bi-' composed of full-bloods, half- bloods and sqnawmen. Tbe trouble grew out of tlie president's order to sectionize, for the con- sideration of which the council had been called. The "Little Soldiers' band favor obeying the president's order, which the "Big Soldiers" band oppose.________________L Captain Hancock's Report. N ILLE, Tenn., September Han- cock, a cotton has returned from a ten days' trip through the cotton counties of middle Tennessee and Alabama. Captain Hancock said today that he had never seen better prospects for a large yield than at present. The planters are jubilant over it. Tho cotton is very hue, and, with favorable weather and late frost, the yield will be exceptionally large. The averages are larirer than for several years. Cotton merchants here report larger sales for bagging and ties for the past lew than for the same period in several years. ThiB is an indication of a very large crop. ______________ THE SPORTING WOBLD. Result of Baseball Games Races.

Colonel Everett declines a joint discussion on the grounds that demo- crats have no differences to settle that way, Jut here is his reply: COLONEL LETTER FISH, Polk County, September Hon. W. H. Felton, CartersviUe, Sir I beg to acknowledge the receipt of your note of the nvitmgr me to attend your appointments and dis- cuss with you, in joint debate, the political issues now pending before the country. Contrasting the peculiar methods by ivhjch you appear before the voters of this district, in viola- tion of all party law, practice and precedent, w the recular usages which resulted in the Ca'houn convention, ita platform and nominee, I contend that there is but one issue between you and your personal followers on the one hand, and; ;he democratic which I represent, on tha other, and that is the issue of whose exact lan- ;uage I have quoted, view and rp- rfied ifftith additional force and emphasis to taa icventli district as late as July Hear him: "There is no longer any necessity for an inde- pendent. The democracy la all right. I am fuLy :onfldent that I could be elected as entj but I never expect to, nay, I never will run. independent again. The white people of the souths must stand together, and I am. for white su- premacy and pure democracy W. LL Felton, in Atlanta Journaj, July 15, 1890. In conclusion, permit me to say that there arts only two parties in the seventh district claiming the suffrages of the people. Major Hargnne 13 the standard-bearer of the republican party, and. myself of the democratic party You arc th.o representative of no party, and as such dlarup- the independent against ihe normnea. Upon tills issue I beg to quote to you the following language from one wiio knows than any other man in Georgia the ils indcpendentisra and the blessings of thorough party organization: meant what I said in my published statement long ago, that I would act In all matters -with tho organ zed democracy. I am more and more con- vinced as time demonstrates the true situation, that thorough party organization is essential to the preservation of our true interests. Antl with tho advent of another republican, it is more im- portant than ever, for the reason that the race question will look up more prominently W. H. Felton, m CartersvilleCouiaut- American, January 10, 1830. And the distinguished gentleman should not hope to withdraw me from my legitimate nt'ssum, which is to battle against the and per- nicious principles of the republican party, and to exert my utmost endeavors to build upt Strengthen an d solidify the democratic party upon whose ultimate triuraplt and absolute unity Jiang the peaca, prosperity and happlnpsp ot our people.-and the preservation of our tree institu- tions. Prompted bv respectfully aectrao your invitation to joint de- bate. Very respectfully, R. W. EVERETT. PUBLIC SENTIMENT FOB EVFRETT. Since the Calhoun convention nominated a democratic leader, Everett stock has gone up; 100 per cent in the district. The broad, con- servative platform has knocked the wind out of Dr. Feltou's race and silenced a vast deal ot enthusiasm, for his candidacy. His followers are at sea.

C., September There will be no trouble at tfie meeting of tho republican state executive committee here nexft week. Logan Harr.s will not bo chosen secre- tary. He says plainly that he will not servo with Eaves, the chairman. A new man will he becretary.
