Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - June 7, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. ESTABLISHED: JUNE, 1839.)BURLINGTON, IOWA, SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 7, 1890- (PRICE: 15 CENTS PER WEEK. STILL TALIK SILVER. Both Branches of Congress at Work on the Question. Mr. Plumb In the Senate Talks for Free Coinage—Lind of Minnesota Advocates It In the House—General Washington News. Washington, Juno 6.—In the senate the house amendment to the senate bill establishing a public park in the District of Columbia was disagreed to and a conference asked. Mr. Mitchell moved to reeonside the vote by which the senate yesterday passed the bill authorizing the construction of a railway bridge across the Columbia river near Vancouver. A new conference was ordered on the dependent pension bill. The silver Dill was then taken up and Plumb addressed the senate. Ile believed it was all but the unanimous opinion of the people that a very considerable increase in the volume of currency was necessary. The circulation to-day was 8240,000. boo less than the framers of the financial legislation of 1874 anticipated, although the commercial business of the country had doubled within that time. The total amount of money which the people of the United Statics bad for the transaction of daily business could not exceed >600.-000,000. e believed it was less than 8500,000,000 and upon that narrow foundation had been built an enormous structure of credit propped up. here aud there, by devices of various kinds and it kept swelling aud growing, while tin* base on which it r* -ted did not grow in proportion to the structure. The senator from New York (lliscock) had yesterday described the great wealth and prosperity of the country, hut if the picture, was true, why was it tho senator and his committee (the finance committee) were “piling up protective, duties.” His (Plumb’s) idea ^as that not only should the vacancy of the National hank circulation be made up. but there ought to be added to that at lea-J, as much as would result from the free coinage of silver. Ile wa willing to abandon his idea in fa vor of fiat money, and to widen the base of t he credit struct lire by adding to it all the silver I hat the United States mints couid turn out. According lo tin-best data. then- wa i I es:-', than sixty millions wort ii of silver mined every year in the. United States, of that sum. thirty millions was coined, eight millions used in the arts. ami only seventeen millions could he used in (hee coinage. It was to he remembered that, lim National hank circulation was being every day retired — the amount to he retired this year being fifteen millions. Plumb went on tit speak of the silver bill in connection with the question of protection. The senate was appealed to yesterday by the senator from New York (Hiscock) against the bill in the sacred name of protection. Silver was an American product—a much larger product than many others which were to he protected by duties of two hundred or three hundred per cent under the coming tariff hill. He would like to ask the senator from New York, who was so anxious about foreign commerce, what he intended to do with the tariff hill, which would prevent the United States from having amy foreign commerce. He hoped he might, interpret the senator's remarks on thai point lls a hopeful augury of the action of that senator iii putting Ii is knife into tin- bill now before the finance committee; a bill which would raise I lie price of nearly everything used by the masses of the people. The silver hill was then laid aside and a message from the president, relating to the landing of an armed force from a revenue cutter at Cedar Keys, Florida, was read and referred to the committee on judiciary. Adjourned. THE HOUSE. Lamest Argument on the silver Problem Cont inned. Washington, .lune Ct. — The silver debale was resumed this morning. Mr. Lind, of Minnesota, the first, speaker, said lie represented the agricultural district, the farmers of which were not, poor, hut not wholly prosperous. The depressed condition was due to low prices of agricultural products. He believed the prices were affected by the amount of money in circulation. Au increase of circulation advanced prices, anti a shrinkage of circulation diminished them. The increase in tie- purchasing value of gold was due to the fact that its production was decreasing, while its use in the arts was increasing. If silver had been allowed to retain its place tis money throughout the world it too would have enhanced in purchasing power. Silver should be restored to its former position. This was demanded by the great, mass of the American people. It was no argument to say the people did not, understand tile question. They did. The people could think and reason as well as the members of congress. The judgment of a popular mind like a woman's reasoning was generally right. Commenting on three measures before the house lie said the treasury bill was most object iona'ble. Under a friendly secretary it might be made useful in increasing the volume of currency but under an unfriendly secretary it might bi' dangerous. Personally he believed the fret' coinage bill prosen ted not only the best but the quickest way to settle the whole question, but he believed it was always best to yield something even to prejudice, if by doing so legislation almost equally eflieaeious and lo-s objectionable could be secured. Such a measure was the republican caucus bill. Mr. Flow’d*, of New York, confined his remarks not ti' the silver question. Inn to tho constitutional amendment relegating to people within the prescribed localities. The choice of such administrative officials, whose functionsof office lie entirely within the prescribed area and whose choice is of consequence only to the people whom they immediately serve. Mr. Lacey, of Iowa. said the country was mot with a contraction of the currency. 'Flic pending bill proposed to give the country an increase to offset the contraction, and even more. It was practically a free coinage bjll. The capacity of mints was ti f t y millioitdollars. The output of the mints was five million dollars. The free coinage of every dollar of American silver would be about tifty-one million dollars. Yet this bill proposed to give fifty-four millions a year of legal tender treasury notes. It was a free coinage measure. betail se *tt provided that when silver was at par the mints Should be open to free coinage. The country needed expansion of currency in a safe way and this bill provided for it. Mr. Walker, of Massachusetts, spoke against free coinage, lie asserted tho demonetization of silver was not the cause of the decrease in prices. The prices have been going down for a hundred years. The more money, meant the more misery. Mr. Perkins, of Kansas, remarked in that connection, “We all love misery." Mr. Walker added that he was going to vote for the pending bill because the members of the houst* from 1868 up to the present time, for the purpose of getting back here, had urged and encouraged the people in their folly until they had come to such a state of mind that something must be done or they w ould break the members up. [Laughter.] It was pure polities, that was all there was about it. Mr. Blount, of Georgia, contended that silver demonetization had cast a blighting curse over everybody except the capitalist. To increase the volume of circulation w as the only way to relieve, not only the agricultural interest, but every other interest in the country. He criticised the treasury bill, declaring it was intended to stop the further coinage of the silver dollar. It was a Wall street measure. He also criticised the caucus bill and advocated the free coinage measure. Mr. Bland said he could only protest against the right of the members of the minority to offer an amendment. The gag law was placed upon the minority for the purpose of passing a bill through the house, the effect of which was to demonetize silver. The bill was a Wall street scheme, and a gold bug scheme to change the ratio between gold and silver. It recognized silver bullion according to its gold value. Silver was being murdered in the house of its friends. He especially criticised the bullion redemption clause, arguing that it would prevent any appreciable expansion of currency. It would hold out a temptation to the secretay of the treasury to make millions of dollars out of speculation in Wall street. The free coinage of silver would not only appreciate free silver bullion, but depreciate gold bullion and bring the two metals to a parity. The government must either issue fiat-money or give unlimited use of gold and silver. Mr. Kerr, of Iowa, advocated the- bill as a long step in the right direction. It would result in the remonetization of silver and the two metals ultimately going hand in hand. Mr. Townsend, of Colorado, said prosperity would not return and the downward course of prices not be arrested until silver was returned to its proper place. The only complete and perfect remedy wa> to reverse tIn* action of 1873 and 1890 back to the free and unlimited coinage of sliver. Mr. Larson of Nebraska said if Secretary Windoni had purchased and coined the maximum amount of silver allowed undi r the existing laws (four millions per month) there would be no need of iii is and he would have strengthened the administration of President. Harrison. To that section of the substitute which provides for bullion redemption Dorsey emphatically objected. Would it not be better to cover the one million redemption fund into the treasury and use it as ti part of the circulating medium and in case the United States Holes were presented for redemption and there was no money to meet the demand, allow the secretary p> sell the bonds to meet the demand}? The bullion redemption feature would be stricken out and he appealed to his side of the house to allow ti vote on the proposition. Mr. McRae, of Arkansas, appealed to t he gent lumen on the oilier side who believed iii free coinage to restore silver to its proper place. The house ut live o’clock took a recess until eight o'clock. A MYSTERY TRAT DEEPENS. The Body of Ella Cordell Found on a Lonely Island.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Keokuk, June 6.—Never since the bloody and and altogether heartless murder of good Dr. Pearson by an organized gang of outlaws at Augusta, over in Hancock county, Illinois, have the people of that community been so worked up to a pitch of horror and excitement as has been caused by the mystery surrounding the disappearance and probable murder of pretty Ella Cordell, of Industry, McDonough county. The facts as to her starting* out to visit a sister in Denver. Illinois, and her utter disappearance from all sight and knowledge of friends and relatives after having been seen at Golden. Illinois, has been related to the readers of The Hawk-Eye heretofore. The story iii brief is that Miss Cordell, who was a prepossessing young lady of twenty-live and a great favorite with lier acquaintances, on the night of Alay 26 last left the home of Dr. I). AI. Creed, with whom she was living, in Industry, a little village on the border of AleDonough and Hancock counties. She intended paying a visit to a sister residing at Bowen, III. She went to AIacornb and remained over night, arid the following morning took a train for Golden, where she was last seen by persons who know lier. It is stated at Golden that she purchased a ticket for this city, but it is almost positively known that she did not come here. Becoming greatly alarmed over her prolonged absence the friends of the young lady instituted a search. Inquiries iii all directions proved of little avail. Vague rumors were afloat of persons having seen the missing girl at different places on different, occasions since her disappearance. The most pronounced of these was that a mysterious vehicle, drawn by a single horse and occupied by a man and a closely veiled lady, was seen hurrying rapidly along a lonely byway in the wild lands of Crooked Creek bottom iii eastern Hancock county. A day or so afterwards an empty grave on a lonely island in the midst of Crooked Creek was found by two fishermen. The grave had evidently been lately dug aud had later been rifled of what had been placed therein. Strong convictions immediately gained currency that tho strange lady in Hie buggy was the missing Ella Cordell and that the stranger whom she had met by previous arrangement, or accident, had enticed her away with him to this lonely retreat where, after assaulting her, murdered and buried his fair victim in this grave. Later, becoming fearful that the crime might come to light, he exhumed the body and took it to a more secret hiding place. Whither he went with his ghastly burden was a matter of conjecture at the time, it being thought that some lonely thicket in the vicinity might contain the secret. Large hunting parties scoured the woods in all directions that night in quest of the remains, but none were found. Suddenly the scene of mystery is transformed to a lonely island in the Mississippi river. On Friday last some fishermen found the body of a woman stranded on the beach of an island a few miles above Canton, Alissouri. The body was buried on the island at the time. A day or two afterwards the news of Miss Cordell's disappearance came to the knowledge of Canton parties who immediately began investigating the matter of the discovered body. A description of the clothing and jewelry found on the corpse was sent to the police here and it was concluded beyond doubt that the corpse was that of the unfortunate girl. It is believed that she was assaulted and murdered, the theory being that the tragedy occurred in Crooked Creek bottom, where the body was first buried. The murderer aftewards exhumed the corpse and drove with it to the Alississippi river where ho thought to everlastingly cover up his crime by consighing it to the turbid bossom of tho great father of waters. Marshal Trimble received a letter yesterday morning giving particulars of the finding of Hie body at Curtis Landing Alay 30. The young lady wore a dark brown or wine-colored dress and her underclothing was of fine quality, At her tnroat was a breastpin with a small chain attached and there were small earrings in her ears. These articles of jewelry correspond with those worn by Miss Cordell. She also wore a pair of new shoes, iii size about three and one-half. All the hair had come off the head. A piece of dress was inclosed in the letter. The letter and piece of cloth were forwarded to Dr. Creel. Investigation brings to light much in connection with the mystery which makes Keokuk the theater of one of tho principal scenes in the tragedy. On May 28, C. C. Alorri-son. while coming from Carthage overtook a man driving a stray horse hitched to a phaeton. The man appeared nervous and frequently leaned toward and drew a robe about some object in front of him. In passing Alorrison saw that the object that had so frequently engaged the nervous driver’s attention was quite large and completely covered. Air. Morrison drove rapidly to this city and left his team at a stable. While standing at the corner of Third and Main streets he noticed the gray horse coming up Alain street. The bulky object that had been iii tho vehicle had disappeared. On the afternoon of Alay 28 a young man hired the rig above referred to ala stable here, and Frank Dobbs,an employe in the barn, drove him to Carthage. Dobbs is also missing, at least a thorough search today did not reveal his whereabouts. The man who hired the rig was apparently twenty-two or twenty-three years of age. The man who was sent with him is described as a worthless fellow who was discharged Alay 30. The police will try and find where the missing driver of the gray horse was on the afternoon and evening of Alay 28. ECHOES FROM THE STORM. The Damage at Council Bluffs. Council Bluefs, June 6.—The flood which prevailed in this section for two days is gradually subsiding..

Dillon, of Neola, 60,000 bushels. Traffic on the Rock Island and Alil-waukee roads is shut off. The latter road cannot repair the damage short of ten days or two weeks. The Rock Island cannot use its road between here and Atlantic, but is moving trains over the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy as far as Red Oak, thence to Griswold, where they have a branch. The Alilwaukee road has neither received nor discharged trains for eights six hours. The Burlington has been almost unaffected by the storm and its results.

They were immediately joined in close union by the friendly handcuff, and thus braceleted brought to the city. Their names are Dick Shehi and Mary Waller. Alary seems to feel quite composed, being engaged in eating peanuts at the Fairfield station wlmn first seen by the reporter, and though surrounded by a crowd of curious staring onlookers, went on cracking the shells and swallowing the meats as calmly as if in her own home. Eccentric Gyrations of Some of the Feathered Creatures. The theory with regard to birds is thai in the love season, when the males are excited and engage in courtship, the females do not fall to the strongest and most active, nor to those that areNfirst in the field, but that they are endowed with a faculty corresponding to the aesthetic feeling or taste in man. and deliberately select males for their superiority in some aesthetic quality. such as graceful or fantastic motions, melody of voice, brilliancy of color or perfection of ornaments. Doubtless all birds were originally plain colored, without ornaments and without melody, and it is assumed that so it would always have been but for the action of this principle, which, like natural selection, has gone on accumulating countless small variations, tending to give a greater luster to the species in each case. My experience is that mammals and birds, with few exceptions—probably there are really no except ions—possess the habit of indulging frequently in more or less regular cr set performances, with or without sound, or composed of sound exclusively; an.I that these performances, which in many animals are only discordant cries and choruses and uncouth, irregular motions, in the more aerial, graceful aud melodious kinds take immeasurably higher, more complex and more beautiful forms. Among the mammalians the instinct appears almost universal, but their displays are. as a rule, less admirable than those seen in birds. There are some kinds, it is true. like the squirrels and monkeys, of arboreal habits, almost birdlike in their rest less energy aud in the swiftness and certitude of their motions, in which the slightest impulse can be instantly expressed in graceful or fa nt tis tic action; the Chine hill! die family, have velcped vocal organs, and resemble birds in loquacity; but mammals generally, compared with birds, are slow a el heavy aud not so readily moved to exhibitions of the kind i am discussing.

Sin' I T- n bird cloud in the blue t hat does not change its form nor grow lighter and denser, like a flock oL starlings; but in the seeming confusion there is perfect order, and amid many humlivtrs each swift or slow gliding figure keeps its proper distance with such exactitude that no two ever touch, even with the extremity of the long wings, flapping or motionless. The black faced ibis of Patagonia, a bird nearly as large as a turkey, indulges in a curious mad performance, usually in the evening when feeding time is over. The birds of a flock, while winging their way to the roosting place, all at once seem possessed with frenzy, simultaneously (lashing downward with amazing violence, doubling about in the most eccentric manlier, and when close to the surface rising again to repeat the action, all the while making the air palpitate for miles around with their hard, metallic cries. Other ibises, also birds of other genera, have similar aerial performances. The displays of most ducks known to me take the form of mock tights on the water; one exception is the handsome and loquacious whistling widgeon of La Plata,which has a pretty aerial performance. A dozen or twenty* birds rise up until they appear like small specks in the sky, and sometime® disappear from sight altogether; and at that great altitude they continue hovering in one spot, often for an hour or longer, alternately closing and separating, tile fine, bright, whistling notes and flourishes of the male curiously harmonizing with the grave, measured notes of the female; and every time they close they slap each other on the wings so smartly that the sound can be distinctly heard, like applauding hand claps, even after the birds have ceased to be visible. The rails, active, sprightly birds with powerful and varied voices, are great performers: but, owing to the nature of the ground they inhabit and to their shy, suspicious character, it is not easy to observe their antics. A screaming concert. The finest of the Platan rails is the ype-caha, a beautiful, active bird about the size of the fowl. A number of ypecahas have their assembling place on a small area of smooth, level ground just above the water, and hemmed in by dense rush beds. First, one bird among the rushes emits a powerful cry, thrice repeated; aud this is a note of invitation, quickly responded to by other birds from all sides as they hurriedly repair to the usual place. In a few moments they appear, to the number of a dozen or twenty, bursting es and miming into the open istantly beginning the per . s is a tremendous scream The screams they utter have ii Glance to the human voice, IU most pitch and expression enstomed to ai d ar*' courage a eontinuanci The Berlin coir Stand ani says that resolved to wait until a willingness to meet count ions on the Afrit a tion have come to a st a.

The Farnellites and radicals will give it the most strenuous opposition and there will be some fun in the house during the next few days. Sir dames Ferguson, secretary to the foreign office, was again obliged yesterday to give a categorical contradiction to the false statements persistently made by the New Foundland delegates lier** that the French had "landed men and curried tilings with a high hand. Tin' French officers, he said, had acted strictly within their treaty rights and had only complained to the proper quarter of violations of tin* treaty by New Foundlandors. The English public are disgusted w ith the arrogance and recklessness of statement of th** New Foundlanders. The French ministry triumphed easily yesterday over a combination of royalists, radicals, Boulangists and socialists, and secured an emphatic indorsement of its pro-Russian policy.

A Serious Injury.—Mrs. Thomas Haines, who resides with her son, Joe, at Waukon, met with a serious accident last Saturday night while on a visit to her son in this city. She was walking in the yard at about half past nine and stumbled ovea a piece of post and in oilrig, as *1 fall, half smothered cries of pain and moans of anguish. Suddenly the unearthly shrieks are renewed in ail their power While screaming the birds rush from side to side, as if possessed with madness. the wings spread and vibrating, the long beak wide open and raised vertically. This exhibition lasts three or four minutes, after which the assembly peacefully breaks up. The singular wattled, wing spurred and long toed jacana has a remarkable performance, which seems specially designed to bring out the concealed beauty of the silky, greenish golden wing quill-. The birds go singly or in paiFs, and a dozen or fifteen individuals may be found in a marshy place feeding within sight of each Oilier. Occasionally, in response to a note of invitation, they all in a moment leave off feeding and fly to one spot, and, forming a close cluster, and emitting short, excited, rapidly repeated notes, display their wings, like beautiful flag3 grouped loosely together; some hold their wings up vertically and motionless, others half open and vibrating rapidly, while still others wave them up and down with a slow. measured motion.

T here is but one lawful way to govern a city. namely, to conform to and enforce th** laws that have been mad** for this purpose. If a competent court shul I decide any of those to In* invalid, the city is in law bound to accept the situation till it can be lawfully relieved. In enacting the prohibitory law all laws permitting * * i t i * * s to license liquor houses were repealed. They cannot enact a valid license ordinance for want of authority from tin* stat**. They cannot prohibit th** sale of intoxicants shipped in from other states and remaining in the original package, because of th** decision of the sn prim** court of the Tinted States. It is a most unfortunate dilemma into which tin* people have been driven by the fanaticism of prohibition and in which th** innocent must suffer equally with til** guilty. But the better way is to suffer wit Ii as much fortitude as possible until congress or th** stilt** legislation shall grant lawful relief. If tin* situation shall become grave enough, the legislature may be convened to relieve it. There is one consolation:    The    free    original pack age is but ii little worse after all than the palmy days of prohibition, which has been from th** fir-t little better than unbridled free whisky.
