Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - June 10, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. ESTABLISHED: JUNE, 1839.) BURLINGTON, IOWA, TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE IO, 1890- (PRICE: 15 CENTS I ER WEEK. MUST BECOME AMERICANS. A Bill to Prevent Foreign Ownership of American Lands. The Silver Kill in the Senate—The Houae Session—Iowa Postoffice**—The Hennepin Canal—General Washington News anil Gossip. nutny millions in ami land bonds, hundred million of which, nuder Washington, June 9.—Representative Oates, from the judiciary committee, today reported to the house a bill to prohibit aliens from acquiring title to or owning lands within the United States. An elaborate, report aceompanied the bill. In it tile committee says the power of the government to totally exclude aliens from coming within the jurisdiction. as has been done in the case of the Chinese, no one questions. This sovereign power certainly includes the lesser one of defining what property rights they may exercise after they are admitted, and during the continuance of their alien condition. Your committee ascertained, says the report, with reasonable certainty, that certain noblemen of Europe, principally Englishmen have acquired and now own. iii the aggregate twenty-one million acres of land within the United States. We have not siiHicont information to state, the, quantity owned by untitled aliens. nor is it so important as it is generally held in smaller bodies. This alien non-resident, ownership will. in course of time, lead to a system of landlordism incomputable with the best interests and free institutions of the United States. The foundation of such a system is being laid broadly in the western states and territories. The avarice and enterprise of European capitalists, the report continues, have caused them to invest, the American railroad covering, perhaps, one acres, the greater part forelosiiro sale, will most likely, before many years become the property of these foreign bondholder- in addition to their present, princely possessions. This aggressive foreign capital is not confined to the. hinds it has purchased, hut is overleaping its boundaries, and caused hundreds of miles of public domain to be fenced up* fur grazing of vast, herds of cattle, and lias set at defiance the rights of the honest, hut humble settler. The bill proposed to place these aliens under the disahilit.es of the civil law as to all future attempts to acquire lands in this country. Iii other words, the report says, tin* bill isa declaration against absentee landlordism. It declares all foreign-born persons who have not been naturalized, incapable of taking title to lands anywhere w ithin the United States except I lie lease hold for not exceeding five years. It has no restorative but prospective operation. It also contains a provision which.will compel alien landowners to cease to tic such or to become citizens of t lie United States wit hill ten years. 'The bill, the report says, would prevent, any more abuses like that of Mr. Scully, who resides in England and is a subject of the queen, but owns 90,000 steres in Illinois, occupied by tenants, mostly ignorant foreigners from whom lie receives as rent $200,000 yearly, and expends in Europe. 'The Schenley estate* about, two thousand steres within the city limits of Pittsburg and Allegheny, from rents of which the Schenley’s, who are subjects of the Brit ish queen, draw animally not less 11 ut t slot),OOO, is another instance of alien landlordism in America. The tenth census show's the United States had .‘.in.ooh iou iii farmers, the largest, number possessed by silty nation in the world. In conclusion the report says: “With the natural increase in people and foreigners who Hock to our shores annually, stud by competition sire reducing the wages of labor, making it, si bilith* for our people, is si problem for American statesmen to solve. The multiplication of owners of the soil is corresponding an enlargement of the number of patriots, and every hind owner in I lie w orld should owe sillegienco lo his count iv.” IN THE SENATE. that ship ceased to be a common carrier and became a private carrier. Mr. Vest denied the statement, but said that if it were decided to be a bill no harm could result from the passage of the bill. The whole steamship line was taken by one shipper (Eastman), and it was done to control the English market and shut out all other cattle dealers in the United States. The result was serious. Cattle were put up and put down when this monopoly chose, because it controlled the transportation. The vote on Hale's amendment was, yeas IO, nays 23.

Washington, June 9.—On motion of Comstock, of Minnesota, the title of the siver bill passed Saturday was amended so as to read as follows:    “Directing the purchase of silver bullion and the issue treasury notes thereon and for other purposes.” .Mr, Lodge, of Massachusetts, offered the following resolution which was referred to tin* committee on foreign affair.":    That the secretary of the treas ury be directed to inform the house whether it is true that the Cunard Steamship company. Saturday last, refused to obey the orders of the officers of the United States to giv(; return passage to certain immigrants landed at New York by said company in violation of the contract labor laws of the United States and if so what steps, if any, have been taken to refuse entry to the steamships of said company until said company has complied with the laws of t he United States, and made some reparation for their refusal to obey the orders of the officials thereof. The floor was then accorded the committee on the District of Columbia. Several district bills were passed and then the house took a recess.

'I’he senate silver bill was thou taken up and Cockrell addressed the senate. Ile said all the benefit that could he claimed for tin* proposed bill was that the secretary would be compelled to purchase $5on.ooh more worth of silver every month than lie now bad a right to purchase aud it" currency would be increased to that extent. Ile asked whether then* was ani valid reason justifying a continuance of t In* exist mg discrimination in favor of the bill and unlimited coinage of gold and tin* issue of gold eer-tilieates for gold bullion and against free and unlimited coinage of silver bullion in standard dollars and issue certificates for silver bullion. He was opposed to discrimination. either for or against gold or silver. They should bi* put on perfect equality. At the close of Cockrell’s speech the house silver bill was laid before tin* senate. Toller moved that the bill be printed and laid on the table. After a brief ar, gument it was so ordered. Mr. Vest asked the senate to take up and consider the bill “to prohibit ltion-oply in the transportation iff cattle to foreign countries.“ Mr. Platt thought the senate should go on and dispose of the silver bill. He had boon waiting to bring forward two lulls w hich seemed to him not only of the highest importance but of the highest privilege the bills have tin* admission of two territories as states, lie gave notice that henceforth the silver bill could not be laid aside except on yea and nay vote. Mr. Stewart asked the unanimous consent that on Tuesday next at three o'clock the senate vote on the silver bill, and amendments. The presiding officer (Ingalls) suggested that there would be at least a quorum present when unanimous consent was asked. Mr. Stewart gave notice that when the bill was taken up to-morrow he will ask unanimous consent. Mr. Vest’s bill was taken up and a discussion of its provisions carried on between Vest in defense of them, and Hoar and Hale in attack upon them. The bill provides that no clearance be granted any vessel plying as a common carrier from the United States to a foreign country, the ow ners, agents or officers of which shall refuse to receive in the or der they may be offered, said vessels having storage room for same, any cattle for transportation to a foreign country, said cattle being in sound condition suitable for transportation and the shipper tendering reasonable freight thereon, or who shall make any contract or agreement creating a monopoly of the capacity of said vessel for carrying cattle iu violation of the law governing and regulating duties and obligations of common carriers to the public and providing unjust discrimination between shippers. Mr. Reagan also defended the bill and argued in favor of its passage. Mr. Hale moved to amend the bill by inserting the words “not already con tracted for in good faith by persons or parties having cattle for transportation at the date of such contract sufficient to occupy such storage room.” Mr. Vest opposed the amendment as one that would entirely neutralize the bill. Mr. Hoar said, where all storage Adversely Reported Rack.

A Heartrending Sight at Rapid City nots. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Davenport, la.. June 9.—Rapid City. a mining town of three or four hundred pesple, situated on the Illinois side of the Alississippi. about nine miles above this place, is in mourning. It is the scene of one of the saddest accidents that have ever happened along the banks of the upper Alississippi. About five o'clock Sunday evening live children set out from the village in a small skiff for an bland that lies some distance below the town. Their parents knew nothing of their intention, and no one else seems to have known xx hat they had in mind. They pulled out into the current unmindful of danger and rowed down the rix'er. Not till they had gone some little distance was it noted that they were in peril by any one of the loiterers along the banks, and then it was too late to render them any aid. With childish screams for the help that could not reach them, and amid the horrified cries of the spectators, they were swept with dreadful speed to the verge of the milldam that supplies Rapid City with one of its leading industries, and in another instant thev went over it. THE THEFT OF A NAME. A DEMAND FOR PROHIBITION. Iowa Methodists iii Conference Pass Strong Resolutions in Favor of No License. Des Mom:". June 9.—At the Atlantic district conference of the Alethodist Episcopal church prohibition resolutions were adopted, closing as folloxvs:    “We demand that the prohibiting law of the state shall be thoroughly enforced by all municipal and other authorities: we most earnestly denounce the vile practice of authorities of many towns and cities in the state iii tolerating on payment of ‘pieces of silver’ into their treasuries the open violation of our wise prohibitory laws, such practice being compoundry with villainy effected through perjury and moral cowardice and in disregard of pulic xvelfare, and being an open defiance of law by offering for such price immunity for its    open    and intended violation; while xvi*    must    positively believe that legal suasian    is absolutely essential to    the    complete success of the temperance cause we believe that moral suasion should ever go hand in hand therewith: believing backsliding to be a God dishonoring sin, we are opposed to any and all backsliding on this all-important matter of prohibiting the manufacture and sale of intoxicants as beverages; we believe that if the great party which stood so nobly in the past for giving Iowa prohibitory legislation shall now back-slide to hypocritical license or the local option pretence of regulating the evil of the sale of intoxicants it xviii not only deserve, but it xviii receive the condemnation of all Godly men and xvomcn, and by so forsaking righteous action to please the baser sort, draxvupon itself dishonor, disaster, and defeat.” THE RIVER LAND CASE. Webster County Threatened With Bankruptcy if the Government Wins. Fort Dodge. June 9.—Legal authorities of,the county are unanimous in their opinion that if tin* government wins tile river land case the lands revert to the government that the present title holders are entitled to recover the taxes that they have paid on the lands, for such a decision xviii make the river lands government lands, and government lands are untaxable. xV Chronicle reporter, to give tho readers an idea of what the result would be, has endeavored to compile some figures, and finds from creditable sources that tho payment of taxes on the lands belonging to Litchfiolds, Burrows, Snells, Wells and the hundreds of acres belonging to minor holders and which have been bought iii by the settlers xviii amount, iii round figures to an average of $5,000 per year from 1802 to I SOO. Legal authorities say that these persons can recover the taxes in question and at the same time recover six per cent interest on the money actually paid, and they back their opinions by reb r *nces to the code of Iowa. The result would necessarily be disastrous to the county and would result in absolute financial bankruptcy. For instance, the interest of the first $5,000 paid in 1862 xvould be $8,400 at six per cent, xvhile on the next it would bo $8,100. on the next $7,800. and so on down, until it xvould be only $300 for the last payment for 1889. boing only for one year, but to add the $5,000 payment each year and the interest for tin* several periods of years until the present time xvould anion [it to $260 800 in all. enough for costs and alloxvances for undcrdcstimates to reach fully $300.-000. For 1889 the total tax collection on all kinds of property in the county is $170.-523. of which only $93,070.07 has been collected, and this in part only goes to the county, the other part going to the state, so that it xvould be doubly difficult to recover the unlawful tax collections, which amount to more than the years 1888 and 1890. This is a clear, concise and nearly accurate statement of what xviii happen to Webster county in case of a decision favorable to the settlers, and is only att example of what xviii occur also to Boone, Hamilton. Humboldt and other river counties that have collected taxes on river lands for twenty years past. of Duplicity Revealed by to Defraud the Govern-’ Peculiar Tale an Attempt ment. Ft. Dodge, la.. June 9.—Charles Shepard, alias Ambrose Christian, of Cherokee, has been sentenced to txvo years in the penitentiary for attempting to draw a pension on another man's discharge papers.

June 9.—Miss Hilde-garde Whittleborn of this place is suffering from an affliction of a most extraordinary nature. About a year and a half ago Miss Whittleborn began to notice that the tips of her fingers and soles of lier feet were slightly discolored but paid no particular attention to it until the discoloration deepened from a faint yellow to a saffron tint, which began to spread slowly until her limbs and the greater part of her body are covered with the stain. It is of a rich copper color, which is growing darker perceptibly from day to day and spreading with alarming rapidity. The young lady’s face, which had hitherto escaped, has within the last day or two become affected. The physicians an* unable to account for the change. Tho dark olive hue is far from being ugly or repulsive, and. doubtless, when it has entirely enveloped her. Miss Whittleborn will find herself as comely as one of Cooper's Indian heroines. ANOTHER IOWA CYCLONE. Red Oak Infested With the Light Fingered Gentry. Red Oak, la., June 9.—Red Oak and vicinity has been infested sometime with a gang of burglars. A short time ago C. W. Swanson’s store is Stanton, eight miles east of here, was broken into and a quantity of clothing and other valuables stolen.

Tin* Remarkable Discovery of a Veteran iii Marshal Comity, Iowa. Marshalltown. la., June 9.—C. II. Brock, a member of the Eighth Ioxva cavalry, in rummaging through old records of the county, discovered among the proceedings of the board of supervisors in 18)53 that on December 7 of that year it passed a resolution granting to every man xvho should enlist after that date $150. In the January following the board passed another resolution granting a bounty to all who had enlisted before or should enlist after that date, due in $50 annual payments with six per cent interest on unpaid amounts. Brock accordingly tiled a claim to-day for $125, as he had received $25 when he enlisted, and the accrued compound interest for over twenty-seven years, amounting to over $600. He further discovered that it xvould take over $60,000 to pay the claims to which soldiers enlisting from this county are entitled. The only thing which can prevent the collection of these claims is the statute of limitations, which, it is said, does not apply to debts of government to its defenders.

June 9.—Frank Irwin. brother-in-law to the missing Elhi Cordell, was in Carthage to-day in continuance of the search for some clue to the disappearance or murder of the unfortunate young girl. He looked worn out from constant loss of sleep and xx'orry. He said to a Hawk-Eye correspondent that he had about given up all hope of solving the mystery. “Ella’s disappearance is a terrible mystery.” said Mr. Irwin. “We have lost all trace of her at Golden, and cannot say whether she got of the train at Carthage. Hamilton or Keokuk. Mr. Cordell, the father, identified the girl’s body as that of Elhi. I did not see the remains and understood they xvere in bad shape. I understand the body xvas identified mainly by the clothing and jewelry. We havli not one particle of evidence tending to implicate anybody in the murder of tile girl, if she was murdered." Mr. Irwin remained in town until four o'clock and then returned home to Bowen. He had intended to visit the grove on Crooked Creek this afternoon but was informed that the grave on the lonely island had nothing to do with Elhi Cordell’s disappearance. as it is now believed it is the work of some hoodlums xvho xvanted to get up an excitement. A citizen of Cartilage says In* has known Frank Dobbs for many years and that Dobbs is not overly brilliant. Nevertheless lie is not a bad man and al-xvays bore a fair reputation in Breckenridge, Hancock county, xvhore Dis parents reside. The citizen is inclined to think that Dobbs is telling the truth about his ride with tin* traveling man. There is a growing belief among people that old man Cordell did not fully establish the identity of his daughter's boily. The remains were in an advanced state of decomposition aud. as stated, are recognized mainly from tin* jexvelry on the body and by parts of the clothing. The girl. as stated, wore shoes no smaller than fours, when tin* corpse found near Canton had a pair of No. 2}7 button shoos on her feet. The relatives and authorities are eager to get possession of the valise carried by the girl and the ten letters which she is alleged to have xvritten at Golden. These, it is surmised, will throw considerable light on the mystery. Mr. Irxvin thinks the girl stopped at Carthage and was murdered at some point in this county. It is the general belief that slit* went on as far. at least, as Keokuk. All traces of the poor crirl are lost tit Golden. The mystery is—was sin* murdered? Did she commit suicide? Is sin* yet alive? Deputy Sheriff Starkey started for Keokuk to-night to secure Frank Dobbs, tin* driver of the grey horse. IL* xviii arrive with his man on an early train in the morning and Mr. Dobbs xviii bo required to answer some questions that have not heretofore been propounded to him. Your correspondent might send a column of rumors, none of which are trust-xvorthy. It is thought the guilty parties, if the girl xvas murdered, xviii soon be apprehended. DEVOURED BY FLAMES.

A Material Improvement Shown by the Latest Bulletins.
