Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - July 29, 1890, Burlington, Iowa BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. ESTABLISHED: JUNE, 1839.)BURLINGTON, IOWA, TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 29, 1890. (PRICE: 15 CENTS PER WEEK. A DAB AT THE TARIFF. No Quorum in the Senate Prevents Substantial Legislation. Otlipr Mutter* in the Senate—The House Considers the Sundry Civil Kill—Assistant Postmaster Clarkson Pet urns to .Work. Washington, July 28.—In tho senate the bill to pension all of tho surviving officers and mon of Powell's battalion of Missouri mounted volunteers, raised during the war with Mexico, was passed. Mr. Aldrich offered a resolution fixing the daily hour of meeting at 11 a. rn. Mr. Ingalls suggested the understanding that the business of the morning hour shall be considered closed at one o’clock. Mr. Allison did not wish it to be implied that the senate would devote two hours a day to morning business. Mr. Ingulf said In* did wish just such an implication. He remarked that as soon as the tariff bill, the appropriation bills and the election bill were passed congress would undoubtedly adjourn promptly. Therefore whatever was to be done between now and the time of ad-jousnment in the consideration of measures on the calendar would have to bt* done in the morning hour. lie respectfully submitted that there were several hundred bills on the calendar that were entitled to consideration, that had been reported from tin* committee and that ought to receive attention from tin* senate at the same time. Mr. Cockrell asked what was the use of the senate passing bills when the distinguished gentlemen in charge of tin* house die not give any attention to them. There were now on the calendar of the house hundreds and hundreds of bills passed by the senate and no attention was paid to them. Mr. Hawley did not quite agree with Cockrell. Ile wanted his own ammunition to be in order so that he could go home with a clear record, a" to what was done elsewhere that was not his direct business. The resolution was agreed to wit I the understanding that the senate shall adjourn at six. Mr. Aldrich moved to proceed to the consideration of the tariff bill. That motion was antagonized by a motion to proceed to the consideration of the house bill for the transfer of the revenue marine to tin* navy department and the latter motion was agreed to. The republicans voting in the affirmative were Cameron. Ingalls, Manderson and Spooner. Cockrell was the only democratic senator who voted in tin* negative. So the senate resumed consideration of the bill for the transfer of the revenue marine from the treasury department to the navy department and Cockrell continued his argument in opposition to it. He had not concluded his speech when at two o'clock the presiding officer laid before the ornate the tariff bill as unfinished business. Mr. Gray moved to continue the consideration of of the revenue marine bill. Mr. Frye said the friends of the revenue bill had occupied but an hour and a half upon it, its enemies (a small majority) all the rest of the time. It was as evident to the senate as if the purpose had been announced that the tim** had been occupied for t he purpose of preventing a vote on the measure. That only indicated (what he believed in) the necessity of the previous question in the senate, of -erne way to stop debate; of soul** way bt prevent a senator from getting up every morning for three or four mornings in succession aud reading j from the report of th** clerk in the treasury department. Wily should not a votf* be taken on the bill. If there is a majority of the senate in favor pound and specific gravity pound. The vote from I Cf cents to I cent per on acid exceeding that from 4 to 3 cents per was; yeas 15, nays 23-no quorum. Mr. Plumb offered a resolution, which was agreed to, callingon tin* secretary of war for information as to the rule established for admission to the soldiers’ homos, if such udmissions tiro based wholly or in part on the amount of pension and whether exceptions to those rules are made and in w’hat cases and for what reasons. The senate bill appropriating 850,000 for «i public building at Sheboygan, Wisconsin, was reported and placed oil the calendar. I he senate then adjourned. '-Letter!* anti Circulars from Many Western States Received at Springfield —The Special Legislative Session—The Senate. THE HOUSE. Tile Snndrv Civil Kill Under Consideration. IV ASIUX*.ton. July 28. — A motion made by Lannon, of Illinois, that the house go into committee of the whole for the further consideration of the senate amendments to the sundry civil appropriation bill, was antagonized in the interest of the District of Columbia legislation, but prevailed. The recommendations of th** committee on appropriations were agreed to without much friction, the bone of contention, the senate irrigation amendment, boing passed over until other matters wen* disposed of. Mr. Cameron made a strong effort to throw into the conference the senate amendment increasing tho appropriation for tin* publication of the official records of the war of the rebellion from Si52.OOO to 8230,000 but was defeated, the house deciding to concur. Without disposing of all amendments the committee rose, and the house adjourned. OBJECT TO A DOUBLE SITE. Agriculturists Strongly Oppose Dividing the Fair Exhibition. CLARKSON’S RETURN. Tin* Assistant Postmaster General Talks of His Observations Throughout the West. Washington, July 28.—Assistant Postmaster General Clarkson returned from his tour of the western states last night and assumed his official duties here today. Ile said to an Associated Press reporter:    “My    tour comprehended all the important cities west of Chicago and north of Kansas City. No oui* can understand hotv rapidly that great country is developing until he sees it. It has not had in any of tin* departments of the government the official facilities that it is entitled to. I traveled * rn the fast mail from central Iowa to Portland. Oregon, which makes a good deal of the time sixty-seven miles an hour, and the service is very efficient; and other ‘fast mails are being brought up to standard efficiency. The post offices in the cities that have been doubling every year or two. were looked over. and I returned with strong recommendations for increased allowances for nearly all of them and some of these have already been granted. The department is anxious to try and keep up with that country in its prodigious growth and increase of population and business. Th** development of th** states in the mountains and on the avitic slope is simply wonderful. WORLD’S FAIR OFFICES TENDERED. Commissioners Desire tin* Services Robert I*. Porter and Prof. Goode. Washington. IL Cfi, July 28.—The commissioners of th** World's Fair during their recent visit to this city tendered to Bobert P. Porter, now superintendent of the census, the position of chief of the bureau of awards, and to Prof. <1 Brown Good, now assistant secretary of the Smithsonian Institute and in charge of tim National Museum, the position of Springfield, July 28.—To-day a circular reprinted from an agricultural paper was placed on the desks of the members of both houses of the legislature and several hundred copies left at the office of the state board of agriculture for distribution. It opposes the use of the Lake Front as any portion of the site for the world's fair. A letter hasbeen received from a stock paper of Cheyenne, Wyoming, also protesting against the use of the Lake Front, and adding that the west was bulldozed at the last meeting of the commission in Chicago, but will not be at the next meeting. Secretary Shafer of the Iowa state board of agriculture has telegraphed the secretary of the Illinois board that if tin* double site is tinnily chosen Iowa will make no agricultural exhibit at the fair. Telegrams urging the stat** board to do all in it**; power to secure a single tract. site. Letters have been received from ox-Govern-or Furnas, of Nebraska; Secretary Moot:, of the state board of agriculture, of Kansas, Secretary Downey, of tin* South Dakota state board, and other representatives of western states. Hon. I). W. Smith, ex-president oi th** National Cattle Growers' association and Live Stock association of the Luffed States, and on** of the alternate commissioners, said today t fiat the stock men of the country, with the agriculturalists, were in favor of a single site. THE EXTRA SESSION. chief of the -iHeat ion catalogue for the lion. Next to the tho of it, why should it not be hermitted to "ny so? The senator from Ohio (Sherman) had made four speeches on the bill, and in the course of them, read the same identical articles which the senator from Missouri had occupied th** last three mornings in reading. Finally Gray's motion was rejected— 140 to lit. The tariff bill was taken up ancf Vest address'd tin* senate in opposition to it. The advocates of high tariff' taxation (he said) w»*re confronted by a great peril. The depression in the agricultural interests and the emphatic demands of the j fartm rs of something besides lying statistics and frothy declamation had caused President Harrison and Secretary Blaine to urge upon congress legislation for subsidies to steaniseips and for reciprocity treaties witlr the South American states iii order to obtain a foreign market for American products. Very little was heard now of th** home market, but a great deal of the South American market. So at least the protectionists had been driven from their pretentious humbug about the home market and were forced to adopt the principle of free commercial intercourse which they had so lons^ipposed and derided. Vest went on to (Titicise iii** provisions of the pending bill that. are supposed to be for the benefit of the farmers. and -.aid what the farmers wanted was an opening and encouragement of iii** foioign markets for their surplus, wheat, corn, cattle and necessary art odes of daily and inc* use by the farmer and his family. leading bill. he declared, was to the mill owtiers i heir contributions campaign fund of the republica., during the last presidential canvas; orthccfmiug oxposi-direetor-generalship fair these are the most important p**"ltions connected with the * xposition. Th* bureau of awards during th* centennial of I*"77 was in charge of Gen. Francis A. Walker and the bureau of classification and catalogue in charge of Mr. Dorsey Gardner. It is not known definitely whether Mr. Porter or Prof. Good** have accepted- the positions tendered. It is understood, if they do. that their new duties will not interfere with those of their present positions. A Resolution Introduced iii the House That ( Ilion Workmen IG* Employed. Springfield, July 2s.—In the house this afternoon a special appropriation bill for the expenses of the general assembly was reported from the committee aud placed on the calendar. A joint resolution of respect to the memory of th** late lieutenant governor was adopted by a rising vote. Representative Whit!*, of Stark, was elected to succeed the late governor and was sworn in. Mr. Lester, of Sagimon, introduced resolutions that it i> the sense of the house that in the employment of skilled artisans and laborers in preparing to hold the World s Columbian Ex postion, the directors or managers shall give employment to union men. After considerable discii'sion it was referred to the committee on labor. Mr. Cormody introduced a resolutian instructing the joint committee before whom the resolution to amend the constitution is now pending to report- provisions providing for the payment af any bonds issued by the city of Chicago in aid of the world s fair before any dividends are declared. This was referred to the committee. Mr. Stinson introduced the following resolution:    Inasmuch as the World's Columbian Exposition will be visited by natives from all th** nat ions of the world, and the management of the exposition will be criticized by them, therefore hep Resolved, That it it the sen-** of this house that sail! exposition in all it" part" should be closed the first day of th*:* week known as the Christian Sabbath. II -ferred to th** committee on federal relations. Adjourned. body of Turkish troops was sent to the church and when they entered they met with desperate resistance. The mob was armed with revolvers and spiked staves and a bloody conflict ensued between them and tin* troops. Four of the soldiers and three of the rioters were killed and others injured before the mob was driven from the building. The cathedral is now closed. It is reported that the Armenians were acting under secret instigation. MANY LIVES LOST. REVOLUTIONISTS TRIUMPH. One Thousand of the Argentine Government Forces Killed.

Baltimore, July 28.—The steamer Virginia this evening collided with the excursion steamer Louisa, on which fifteen hundred excursionists were gathered, Tho collision occurred off Fort Carroll, about five miles from Baltimore. It is said tho collision resulted from tin* efforts of the steamers to avoid a schooner in tow of a tug boat. Both vessels were badly damaged. Many of the excursionists are missing and some are painfully injured. Three bodies were recovered up to eleven o’clock. It i" supposed the others are lost. POUNDED WITH A BRICK. A Young >11111 Knit ally Attacked by a Drunken Ruffian. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.l Ai.EUO, 111., July 28.—The village of Millersburg is highly worked up and the citizens very indignant over the severe and dangerous attack made upon fit. rg<* W. I lolnies, son of Supervisor Holmes of Ducan township, on last Sunday evening by That! Grady, a quarrelsome and drunken hoodlum of that village. The particulars are as follows:    Young Holmes was returning home from a visit. by way of Millersburg at which place In* stopped for a short time and when he prepared to leave lie was accosted by Grady who demanded that Holmes should take him a ride about town. Young Holmes gave him a cigar and told Iiitn hi* hadn't time and started to drive toward home whereupon Grady sprang upon him and proceeded to smash his head and face with a brick which he held in his hands. The cries of young Holmes brought people to his assistance, hut not before he had received several severe and dangerous wounds on the face and head. Ile now lies in a precarious condition. The constable attempted to arrest Grady who drew a knife and threatened to kill any man who laid hand- on him. Th** matter is now in hands of States Attorney Brock and Grady, when captured, will doubtless compensate by a long term in th * penitentiary. A FARMER’S FATE. Mack Guffey, a Missouri Farmer, Terribly .Mangled by a Reaper. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Unionville, July 28.—This morning about eleven o’clock, Mack Guffey, who was driving a span of mules to a mower, met with a fatal accident at his stepfather's, \V. M.

Telegraph Communications Cut DIT— Revolutionist* Incensed — President Colman Said to Have Returned—Foreign News. Buenos A yuks, July 27.—Evening.— The revolutionary movement continues to spread. Fighting between government troops and revolutionists to-day has been desperate. The government forces were defeated and 1,000 of them killed or wounded. The navy has joined the revolutionary movement. Insurgent artillery bombarded the government house and barracks to-day for twenty-four hours. A truce has been arranged between the opposing forces. Th** triumph of the revolutionists appears to be assured. Telegraphic Communication Suspended. Buenos Ayues, July 28.—The authorities of the Argentine Republic haw-notified all telegraph companies whose lines connect with tile lint*" of that country that telegraphic communication will be suspended until further notice. The Goverment Troops Reimbursed. I'aicis. July 28.—A dispatch from Buenos Ayres, sent at IO a. rn., says tin* government troops have been largely reimbursed and I’resident, Colman ha" returned.

Revolutionists I licensed. London, Hilly 28.—A dispatch reived from Buenos Avres stat*-" that re ne leader of ti)** revolutionary movement belonged in that city. The revolutionists ar** incensed that the best positions under the government were given to men from the Province of Cordova.

Previous to the arranging of tin* armistice, the war ships, which had just joined tin* revolutionary movement bombarded the loyalist stronghold. Hamilton to Niota, to connect with the Santa Fe, are asking that tin* citizens of Nauvoo, an inland town, situated some distance to the west of th*- straight, route, take 810.000 stock in consideration of securing the road. *23,000 of tho amount has been taken, but a few wealthy citizens are hanging lire. It is now announced that th** projectors have received big Inducements to build iii** road direct through Sonora township, cutting off Nauvoo. The scheme is regarded as a bluff to frighten Nauvoo citizens into putting u{) the >17,OOO extra, while others think tin* new route is under serious consideration. EARLY THEATRICAL DAYS.

The manufacturers who were persistently asking higher duties to exclude foreign competition were availing themselves of the monopoly given by the exclusive tariff to charge the people of this country from 20 to TO per cent higher for their goods* than Ahey could sell the same articles for in unprotected markets of the world. It was no longer protection but pure, simple, naked plunder. The Americans boasted of their free institutions, of liberty and equality, but who (he asked) could call himself a freeman, save in mockery, when by con nm of law the proceeds of his lift* and labor won*- unjustly taken to enrich another. • Mr. Turpi** addressed the senate briefly on McPherson's resolution to recommit the bill with instructions to report the bill to reduce the revenue and t<* equalize the duties on imports in which the average ad valorem rate of duty on ‘C; dutiable articles shall not exceed th* average ad valorem war tariff rate of 1864.
