Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - September 16, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia E ATL VOL. XXII ATLANTA, TUESDAY, MOBNIBTG, SEPTEMBER 16, PAGES. PRICE FIVE CENTS. BOB KENNEDY TIXDS HIMSELF THE OBJECT OF Atf- SOME REPUBLICANS ATTACK HIM. le tho Majority Seem to Defend The Full Text of the Speech Created All the Trouble. September -Tho torch was applied, the first rocket shot .sfcyward, and the pyrotechnic display was on. The audience was all interested. The second rocket was looked for. but the powder was wot. There v. as a delay. Another show was "brought oat to consume tho time. A delay of two hours and then the rockets shot skyward; the wheels throw out fire in all directions; the -ecence waahmd! It looked like every tiling was on firo, and the audience was highly de'ighted, when sud- denly tho hose was turned on and the an- nouncement made that the show would be continued tomorrow. MR. FM.OE'S RESOLUTION. Mr. Enloe, of Tennessee, lighted tho first rocket soon after the house met. It was in the shape of a icsolution providing that the clerk of the house communicate to the senate the fact that the house reprobates and condemns the utterances of Bob Kennedy, reflecting upon the character of the senate. Mr. Enloo introduced it as a privilege resolution. Speaker Reed, who is believed to have in- spired Kennedy's speech, and who stands ready to protect him, examined the resolutiou care- fully before he allowed the clerk to read it. Ho consulted with his advisory clerk, exam- ined his own rules, found he could not rule it oat of order, and then lianded it to the clerk to read. 16 created a sensation. The republicans in a quandary. Reed wanted it out of the way for a time, and requested that Mr. Enloe withdraw it until the report on the tariff bill was disposed of. Mr. Enloe consented. THE KESOLUTIOX RESUMED. After the disposition of the tariff, Mr. Enloe called up the resolution, and then the fire- works opened. General Grosvenor, of Ohio, the old parti- san, who wants to set aside the redis- trictuig of Ohio in order that he may come back to congress, attempted to get Kennedy out of the hole by making the point of order that the resolution was not privileged, because no one had called Kennedy to order when he made the speech. Then the argument opened on the point of order. Mr. Eailoe argued that it was in order, that it affected the dignity and integrity of tho house, and that the house owed it to itself to inform the senate that its members repudiated such utterance. Here Reed showed how he stood by inter- posing the suggestion that the rules say a member must he called to order for violating the rules before other business has intervened. Everything looked like the republicans were in for allowing Kennedy's language to stand. Mr. Enloo had the speech from the Record road, and at those parts denouncing Quay there was a broad smile, apparently of ap- proval, on the faces of the majority of the repuVica'n members. They would look at one another, smile and nod knowingly. Ev- erj thing showed that the majority of repub- licans endorsed what Kennedy had said. MR. BAYNE JUMPS UP. Then Mr. Bayne, a Pennsylvania repub- lican, took the floor. He is the man whom Mr. Bynum denounced as a perjurer and a falsifier, and for which, at instance Mr. Bynum was censured. His first remarks created a sensation: "I concur in the remarks of the gentleman from he said. "It is the duty o: the house to adopt the resolution. Epithets 1m e been applied to two senators that waul" disgrace any man in this country, and the sen- ate as a body has been attacked. This body cannot fail to put the seal condemnation upon these utterances. I trust it will no'' allow any technicality to interpose." TIio Kennedy gang wavered under thii bomb Evtn old General Grosvenor saw on a vote the resolution would pass, and he arosi and announced that the resolution should gi to a committee. "To a you interposed Sir. Eniloo. "Yes, knowing your motives I re plied "And your retorted the Tennes- eeiui, "are never other than vile." At this moment Mr. Bayne took the floo; again, and offered a resolution to be added tc Mr. Enloo's, that the speech be eliminate! {rom the permanent records. OTHER. REPUBLICANS TO THE CHARGE. Mr. Adams, of Illinois, another republican then arose and strongly advocated tho Enl resolution. The house should not suffer itsel to be put in an attitude of hostility to the sen ate, he said, and tho resolution should pass. A half other representatives, who on the outside of Reed's crowd ready to follow on the sanr line, when McKinloy turned th hose upon tho pyrotechnics by moving to ad journ, stating that the question was one o each grave importance that it required cal deliberation. Thus the matter wont over nntil tomorrow After adjournment it was freely discussei mong the republican members. The stron advocates of the force bill said the charge Against Quay were true, that he had been a de laulter when treasurer of Pennsylvania, an that his friends had furnished the money make it good. Other republicans said whil that might be true, denunciation of Quay in jured the republican party, and it was bette to sacrifice Kennedy than the party. KENNEDY IS MAD. Kennedy is red hot. He has a speech pre- pared to reply to the Enloe resolution, an -Bays ho -will deliver it tomorrow. Ho say he -will also read letters he ha Deceived commending! his course, and h thinks he can make it as not for the other fe lows as they can make it for him. Tonigh Kennedy is in consultation -with Reed and th entire republican Ohio delegation. They ar some scheme to pull Kennet through the hole. The chances are Reed wi tomorrow rule the Enloe resolution out c order, if he the assurance that he will 1 sustained. If not he will concoct some othi plan that will amount simply to a smoothing over of the affair. QUAT'S POUCY OF SILENCE. Quay is pursuing; his policy of silence. He say nothing, but his friends can do what they choose. However, whatever he does, Reed is at the bottom of a schem'e to force him the chairmansnip of the resolution com- mittee in order tfaflt Giarkson, "Who is Reed's friend, may take it. trill probably lurid in the ouse. If Kennedy does get tho floor, the ir will fly somewhere. THE CRLEBKATBD SPEECH.

HiBtory is repeating itself. The great party of the republic having lived for tinrty-ilve years, ind durnis t lat rime having under all circum- stances been the friend of liberty and humanity, auttliavingtiplifted its hanii evcryp-uere for the enslaved and the oppress d, has seen its banneis Carried forward in the onward march of human progress until throughout all America there has been proclaimed tho universal freedom of the leople.

The Judas Iscanot two thousand years ago is to find a t ount: rpart in thu atlas ot t iday. The Judas who toot the thirty pieces ot silver and went and hanged has Jeft an example TO bo added Matt well worthy oi imitation CRIME MLbTNOT DB HIDDEV BECAUSE IT 13 RE- Some ture since I o >d in my place upon this floor and. denounced a sen t tor from my native state- because, when charged with cir uptioii and branded with infamy, he did not arise in hia seat and demand an iiiV3stigation and inquiry that should establish tho puruy of his actions and his Q-ooiialhonor. Again 1 stood in my place upon tnls floor and denounced tlie then speaker ot this houfae, be- cause when charges of fraud and outrage con- nected with his election were made against him, Instead of demanding the bcarching investi- gation that he might be from these as- persions upon lua character, be was content to permit a committee composed of his political friends to bury them under the convenient cover" of a refusal to give hearing to his accusers. These men were democrats. J.ow ano'hcr, occupying a high place in the councils of the political party to I belong, has suireriHl himself month in and month oat to be with crimes and misdemeanors for which, if guilty, bo should have been condemned under tlie laws of hjs state and have had measured out to lam the fullest measure ot it's punishment. This man is a republican. Shall 1 now remain silent? Is it just and after having de- nounced these democratic leaders to remain in my beat eik-nt because tine who is of crimes and refuses to bt-ek lor vindication i -to. republican iind that republican the recognized leader of my party9 Mr. Speaker, neither decency nor honor would permit me to do so. I do not know whether the charges made against tbe chairman oi the national "republican com- mittee arc- true or false. I do not know if the charges made against the member from Kentucky or the senator Jrom Ohio were true or false, but I do know that they did not demand investigations of them, and for this I denounced them on this lioor I do not know whether these charges against the chairman of the national republican com- mittee are tiue or false, but I do know that they have been made by journals ot chara.1 and standing again uncl again, and I do know that in the of charges lie has remained silent, and has neither sought nor attempted to seek opportunity to vindicate himself against them.1 I do .know that as a republican leader lie owed it to tbe great party at vibo-e head he was rather to brand them as intanuej or to prove their falsity, or he owed it to the party to stand aside- from its leadership. Ho boa not either, and for this I denounce He has failed to justify himself, and though op- portunity and ample time nave been given him no remains silent. His silence under such circum- stances is bimply a confession of guilt. An honor- able man does nbt long dally when his-ionor is as- Bailed. He has delayedtoo long to justify the belief in his innocence. He stands convicted already be- fore the bar of public opinion. Under sucn cir- cumstances he should be driven from the head of a party whose life Ins presence imperils. So I say the republican party has done enough for this pretended leader; let him be relegated to It is no longer a question of his vindication, but It is now a que'-t on of the hie of the party itselt. Better a thauband such should go down to ob- scurity tliaiLitbat he shonld he permitted ta hang as a millstone about the neck, dragging it down to destruction._________ E. W. Js. AX-MOST INSTANTLY A Bloody Between Two "WASHINGTON, September While vulgar Joe Cannon's majority in tfia_ last congressional election, in. his Illinois dis- trict was large, private advices from there are to tho effect that the beast will have no major- ity at all in the November election. Indeed, there are a few thousand republicans who, it is said, will refuse to vote at all, on account of tbe disgrace LroushtuponthoirdistrictbythD filthy speeches of t.ho blackguard, and, consequently, it is believed a democrat will succeed him, Tho chances aro that McKuiley will also go clou u m defeat. Butter worth is already out- and so is Grosveuor. Thus, of the live fooftf light favorites of the republican congressmen, Tom Hoed will be alone in tho next house. THE RKED BOOM. Notwithstanding the Hoed boom for the pros'.dential nomination Iu '92, which has grown to proportions of groatnoan since bis rc-elecuontothe house by the largest majority hia district has ever civen any candidate, Mr. Harrison still haa his weather eye upon a second term. "And bo will get said one of his rtp- pointeos today. "He will go into the conven- tion with tho vote of southern state. Ho fixed that by his distribution of tho patronage. He will likewise have Indiana and enough western, states to carry him through. Harrison has placed the offices -where they will tell. "We know be is not popular with the politicians, but be "will be renominated all the same." However, outside ot his officeholders no can bo found who entertains any such views. By the loading men of the party he is not even considered. Indeed he is so small that no republican mem- ber of either house considers his views or his position in anything. They look upon him as-a sort of unfortunate necessary in the white house, not worthy of mention. However it will bo fortunate for the democratic party it the little fellow is renominated; It would mean democratic success in '92. THE FORCE BILL CANVASS. When the original fight was being made tot the passage oE the force bill by the house, Kowell, of Illinois, and Cabot Lodge, of Massachusetts, used the argument with vigor that an election bill was needed to prevent the fraud and violence that took placo in Mississippi during congressional elections'. This was one of tho strongest arguments made, and Mr. who is chairman of the elections committee, is the man. who placed it before the house in full dress. His description of the methods in. Mississippi were such as to lead the northern. A COLORED ORATOB.

Notwithstanding all this, it will be noted that of all the southern members Mr. Kowell and his republican assistants in the elections committee have txunod out, not one has been from Mississippi. Tho scats of Mississippians have been con- tested. Mr. Morgan's was contested so was General Catcliings's, and likewise General Hooker's, but none of them Meie turned out. Indeed, after all his vivid oratory of a general nature about frauds in Mississippi. Mr. Row- ell could not find enough evidence to demonstrate oven a semblance of justice in turning out a Mississippi man, and conse- quently he has been compelled to silently ac- knowledge his inconsistency. HOW SHE ADVERTISED HERSEI.B'. Lillian Lewis, a young actresa plajing here in one of the small theaters, adopted a rather remarkable method of advertising herself a day or two ago. She claimed to have had a dream in which phe saw herself alive in a coflin. Adopting the idea of the dream she took her manager aud a party of f ri ends to a photograph gal lery a lew days ago, borrowed a coffin from an un- dertaker and had her photograph talce.i while lying in the "somber-hued house of death." She had another taken in a sitting posture in the coflin, representing her reviving con- sciousness. THE COPYRIGHT DILI.. If the international copyright bill is ever gotten up in the house again, tho chances are tho fight the newspaperijghave made against the men who voted against it before will lead to its passage. However, the average member is very sore on the lobby that has been here for some time working to secure its passage. That they didn't know their business is expressing it mildly. An old professional lobbyist can do ruora in a day than tbe whole crowd of them could do in a month. They talk nothing but the copyright bill. Theytalk it everywhere and at all times, and simply worry the very lifo out of the average congross- JACKBON, Miss., September gomery, the negro delegate, addressed the con- vention today in support of the committee's .report and proved himself by far the ablest man of his race who lias achieved prominence !in the state foryears, being easily the equal of John R. Lynch and B. K. Bruce. He said in part: Before the trust of becoming a member of this honorable body conferred upon me by my 'constituents, I fully stated to thorn my earnest conviction that tbe worlc of this convention, in order to be successful, must restrict franchise by prescribing such qualifications for voters aa would reduce tho negro vote considerably Imlow tho white vote of tiha state. I entertained the same opinion then that I hold now; that tiie federal congreds wJH interpose no 'objections, provided suuli restrictions are hon- estly imposed lor the purpose of bringing about a lair bulution of the great problem now con- fronting the people of this state. 1 Tue speaker went on to say how much of the wealth and prosperity of tho south was due to the labor oC the colored man. He re- ferred to the loyalty of the negro race to the southern people throughout tho war. He con- cluded that branch of his subject by saving: It is at least justice to my race, that I should recall those alFeetiue memories upon this floor to- day. My mission he.o is to bridge t) o suaam that lias been widening and (leopeniiur for generations; to divtru theinilestromt iat threatens destruction to you and vours, while It promises no enduring prosperity to me aud mine.

At this juncture an alien and claimed the con- fidence which the people of our condition at that time must neeU to place in some superior hand. The alien Bought and obtained our confidence, but not our affections. That, Sir. President, would remain with you and yours till the memories and traditions of former generations become obliterated. We are well aware that our race Has not yet attained the hirft plane of moral, intellectual and political excellence common to yours, but it Js our privilege to press onward and upward. It is a lack in any ad- justment of our political economy, opposed by you lhat keeps up our race solidly, without a restoration of coulidence, I can ece no solution of tills great problem. The speaker then declared his belief that tho report of the franchise committee is the safest measure for the convention to adopt; A wail comes up from thousands of hearts in mute appeal to the convention. This bill will re- strict 121.33} negro voters and white, giving a net white majority of Such, I believe to be the virtual effect of the measures reported by the committee. Mr. President, it is a fearful sac- rifice laid upon the altar oi liberty. Many of these men you seek to disfranchise I know per- sonally. Their hearts are as true as steel. Many are soldiers wlio have stood amidst the smoke of battle on bloody fields in defense of the flag which every American proudly hails as the ensign of freedom and his talisman protection In all civ- ilizod lands. I wish to aav to my people that we have not taken away your high privilege, but only lifted-it to a higher plane, and exalted the station of your great American birthright. is due to us that there should be some .expres- sion on the part of this great body indicating that the price is correct; that the contract la ratified and accepted; that the race problem shall become a tiling of the past, and not to vex and alarm, tho Two Dlembcrs of tbe Cortes Have a Flglit During Debate. JLiSBON, September reassembling of tli. 6 cortes today caused great excitement throughout the city, as a stormy debate on the e treaty was expected. The shops offices were closed, and thousands of citizens of all classes wended their "way to the parliament build- ings, Tphicfi besieged by an enormous crowd, clamorous for admission hours before the session opened. The authorities had taken precaution agaJnst disorder, but official interference was unnecessary, as the crowd was good natured and well behaved. Soon aft'ertbe, opening of the cortes, Senor Bibeiro, minister of foreign affairs, moved the adoption of the Anglo-Portuguese treaty. Ho began to read the various modifications which the govern- ment had adopted in order to -issuase public hostility to the treaty, but before he had gone far he was silenced by the piogroasist minor- ity opposition members hissing and hooting so vigorously that the minister could not make himself heard. Amid a tumult Major Serpa Pinto arose and shouted to the progressists: "Hold your Upon this a progressist priest, named Brandao, assaulted Serpa Pinto, and a lively pugilistic encounter ensued. The priest was utterly unable to restore order, and finally sus- pended tho sitting. "When the cortes reassembled, Senhor Bibeiro introduced the English convention with the following modifications; 1. Commercial stipulations regarding rivers; they shall not include the old province oi Angola, and the convention shall apply solely to goods in transit, Portugal remaining to im- pose import and export duties. 2. A clause providing that no portion of territory assigned to Portugal, south of Zam- besi, may be transferred to another power without England's consent, shall be replaced by a simple reservation giving England tho preference in event of transfer. 3. A neutral nation, instead of Eiicland, shall appoint an engineer to survey the Pangiveran, road. The house referred the convention to the committee on foreign affairs, whereupon the progressists moved that Lieutenant Continno, who seized the British steamer James Stephen- son, at Chiromo, deserved the confidence of the country. The sitting was concluded in an orderly manner. Senhor Bibeiro's amendments to the convention produced an excellent impression. Butaors of a cabinet crisis are semi-omcially declared to be untrue.

Meacham, who recently an- nounced himself aa an independent candidate for congress in this district. He is a very weak candidate, and his nomination im- mensely increases democratic prospects of carrying the county.

Y., September One of the detectives who have been working on the train-wreckers' casa say that the whole fight, when the wreclcera are brought for trial, will be centered in an effort to_save Kiernan. He said Kiernan was a shrewd fellow, and had been admitted to all the councils of the Knights, and knew their secrets, while the other men were the tools of Kiernan and acted under his instructions. All but Kiernan have, it has been learned from a reliable source, made written confessions, which implicate the five men now in, custody as being_ wreckers, and from the same dource it is said, that the evidence put into the hands ot the railway officials will surely secure indictments and convictions. _ _ _ Another lElectric Tragedy.

BOSTON, September Potter and W. D. Lovell, of the firm of Potter, Loveli Co., were arrested today on warrants charging them with embezzlement and larceny. The complaint is made by Charlas Richardson, of Philadelphia, a member oE the firm of G. Bieliardson Sons, a director of tho National Bank of the Republic in Philadelphia, and president of the Edpeliill Furnace Company. It alleges the embezzlement and larceny of worth of bonds of the EdgehiU Fur- nace Company. The transaction between the parties on'which tho complaint bases is one on whica the temporary injunction against the disposal of bonds was recently granted. In big petition for that injunction, Mr. Richardson sets forth that his firm has been in the habit of placing their notes with Potter, Lovell Co. and the Potter-Lovell Company for ne- gotiation, and that, to cover advances from the concern when possibly there were no notes on hand, the firm h ad given security on worth of 6 per cent bonds of Edgehill Furnace Company. These bonds, he says, are in the possession of E. G. E. "Wallace, Rochester, N. H., and, therefore, that the firm is made a party to a civil suit. Ho then alleges tho fraudulent conversion of bonds by Potter, Lovell Co. to their own use, and asks an accounting. The criminal complaint ia drawn along the same line of basis, and the ?arao allegations. The prisoners were held in bond each for a hearing on Sep- tember 25th. Both furnished bonds. A FIRK IN commander of the eighteenth army corps, gave a banquet last night to the four officers who attended the recent maneuvers of the French array. General Ferron gave a toast to Cap- tain Kabaloff of the Russian army, who, he said, represented au incomparable army, which was able to dispose of the armed coali- tion which was threatening Europe. If one campaign not sulhce to effect this, Russia would not hesitate to have re- course to several and would bo victorious in the end. General Ferron asked the company to drink to the sister aruiy of Busbia. In re- plying to the toast, Captain Kabaloff dilated upon the feeling of aftection with which they the Russian army regarded the army of France. Upon conclusion of his remarks, he, according to the Russian custom, shattered his glass upon the floor. ___ _ that crowd" Broadway as the theaters empty Halt of a Business Kloclt Flames Elsewhere.

The fire was first discovered in the battery room of the Western Union telegraph office and spread so rapidly that nothing was .saved belonging to the office.

LONDOS, September Zanzibar corre- spondent of The Times says: European circles are confident that the Berlin government will countermand the German blavery proclama- tion at Bagamoyo, but even that will fail to remedy the irreparable harm already done. Tbe object of the Germans is to attract wealthy Arabs to the German coast line. A Gorman official recently presided at an auction salo of slaves. Serious dilSculties are certain to ensue on the British coast line, nud probably tho Arabs will attempt to coerce the sultan to withhold his decree.________ Tho Smokeless Powder. the conclusion of the manccuvers here, General Forron, com- mander of the eighteenth army corps, issued an order of the day, in which he says that the use of smokeless powder will make no change in defensive tactics, but will render offensive tactics more difiicult.
