Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - June 13, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. ESTABLISHED: JUNE, 1839.)BURLINGTON, IOWA, FRIPAft MORNING, JUNE 13, 1890- (PRICE: 15 CENTS PER WEEK. EVARTS SPEARS OS SILVER. He Declares the Act of 1873 Was a Murderous Thrust at Silver. A Report on the Dependent Bill—The Day’* Proceeding* in the House— The Tariff Bill Consideration —Washington News. Washington, June 12.—In the senate, Platt gave notice that immediately after the consideration of the silver bill he would ask the senate to consider the bill for the admission of Wyoming as a state. The house legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill was reported from the committee and placed on the calendar. Mr. Davis presented the conference report on the dependent pension bill and at the request of Cullom proceeded to explain it. After considerable discussion the report went over and was ordered printed with the bill as agreed to by the conference. Gorman desired Davis to fix a day when the report could be called up for action. Mr. Davis said he would be unable to do so, but would give notice to the senate some day next week. The senate silver bill was then taken up and Evarts addressed the senate upon it. He characterized the act of 1873 as a murderous thrust at silver. After a review of the international conference on i the question of silver (out of which nothing bad came) he said now for the first time in the progress of the matter of redress, the question confronted the republican party, which had a majority in each house and central of the executive power. It was for that party to de-termind that the interval of lassitude and delay should be no longer extended. The people of the United States through their representatives in the two houses of congress and in their e-ection of the executive head, in his opinion, determined they would not allow the disgrace and disorder to continue, either in regard to their domestic money or their money in relation to commerce. Congress was now prepared for the adoption in one form or another of a measure which as compared with anything that had been done in the interval between 1873 and 1800 was like the step of a giant as compared with that of a sick man. Speaking of the proposed opening of the AinerJJ jean mints to the silver of the world, Evarts said with the difference in ratios (15>£ in Europe arid 15 in this country,) that measure would be utterly impracticable, (‘specially if it was desired also to cause the opening of the mines abroad to silver, the provision to receive silver bullion over the counter of the treasury and pay for it in certificates, leaving the transaction at the will of the bullion, never approved itself to his judgment. Money can never be safely treated as a commodity. It was not to be treated as anything but the force and propulsion of circulation. Mr. Vance spoke in favor of the unlimited coinage of silver. Mr. Morgan began a free coinage speech, but without concluding, yielded to a motion to adjourn. THE HOUSE. Tli«* Conference Report on the Tariff Bill Agreed To—Other Matter*.

In an interview to-day he expressed himself as confident that the prisoners were connected with the most extensive and dangerous conspiracy against the life of the czar and the institutions of the Russian government that nihilism had yet organized. Indeed, he had positive information that the French contingent of nihilists were in collusion with those in Russia and Switzerland to murder the czar and precipitate simultaneous outbreaks in different political centers. The arrest of the Paris nihilists and the vigilance of the Russian police had frustrated the plans of the plotters, but they were still active and a large number of arrests, for which preparations are now being made, would be necessary to their complete suppression. It is understood that General Silicerstoff will make formal application for the names of the Russian correspondents of the Paris prisoners. Public opinion at Paris is turning in favor of the arrested nihilists, the testimony given by tradesmen and janitors having developed nothing against them.

New York, June 12.—The national temperance congress this morning discussed the topic “Should there bt' a political party whose dominant idea is prohibition of the liquor traffic?" Rev D. Carroll, editor of the the ground that was not needed. a question that within the scope of in a very limited degree. Prohibition is evidently a state question. The national party to live must have a dominant national issue, and prohibition is not such an issue. We would have more prohibition if we had fewer prohibition parties. Rev. Dr. Bascom, late president of the Wisconsin university, said the republican party is now under the most unscrupulous leadership. It cannot be trusted to secure prohibition: hence, the necessity of a prohibition party. Mr. Hillard, of Boston, spoke in opposition to a prohibition party, lie thought this was to be a congress or conference, but it seemed to be only a caucus. In the afternoon session the principal topic discussed was: “To what causes is to be attributed the failure of prohibition amendments in the late contests in Massachusetts. Pennsylvania and Rhode Island?” ll. H. Faxon, of Massachusetts. attributed the defeat in his state to the fact that high licence had been placed on the statues a short time before the campaign and Boston was determined to get the $887,600 fees. He thoughs local option the best thing. The prohibition party, he said, is exerting a healthful and restraining influence on the republican party. As for the democratic party, it cannot be trusted to do anything which will advance temperance and morality. The attitude of the labor unions towards liquor traffic was also discussed. President Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor, said, as a rule, laboring men were indifferent to the temperance and prohibition movement. The underpaid laborers who were unable to procure proper nourishment, sought relief in liquor, and looked upon any attempt to deprive them of it as a movement to secure for the rich a privilege they could not enjoy. I. S. Wakeman said the present altitude of prohibitionists was antagonistic to the workingmen. The prohibitionists should discard religious fanaticism which seems to guide them at the present. The'prohibitionist must descend from his pedestal of holiness, study the workingman, place himself on the same level and change the mode of proeeedure. Mr. Wakeman’s little speech created a great commotion and the congress apparently did not like his unasked-for oppinion of its work. ELLA CORDELL’S MURDERER.

It was in the suits for $10,000 damages brought by Henry Root and the National Cable Railway company against the Sioux City Cable Railway company. The cases have been pending for a year and simil-iar suits have been brought in different jurisdictions on the same patents. The claims involved in these patents have reference to all the main features of cable operations of street railways and were very important to cable railways. The court in its opinion upholds every claim made by the plaintiffs in these suits, with one exception, and this exception is not on a point material to defendant. At the side tracks of the cable railway system in Sioux City there is a pivoted switch rail covering the junction of the slots of the tubes on the thin line and side track, and as the car approaches this junction by operation of a spring connected with the switch the rails can be moved in either direction to permit the grip of the car to pass Into the slot of the tube of the side track. The court holds that the defendant infringes this patent, but in view of the fact that plaintiffs permitted defendant to construct its line with this device, and that whatever damages are sustained by the infringement can be settled on a money basis, an induction is denied until farther order is made in the case.

The outlook in Ontario is generally bright, but much depends upon the weather during the next few weeks. Winter wheat suffered severely for want of snow and excess of rain, and in some places will not average much over half a crop. Spring wheat looks very well.particularly on high land. Corn is backward and the acreage of barley below’ the average. Hay will be a magnificent crop in quantity though a little poor in quality. In Quebec everything is very much backward. Manitoba takes a cheerful view of things, and expects an immense wheat crop. ’Twill Make Cheap Crackers. Chicago, June 12.—An evening paper says that a rival of the great cracker trust, known as the New York Biscuit company, has been formed in the west.

June 12.—The ConstUu-tion-DemocnU this evening prints the following regarding the Cordell mystery: The police were treated to a genuine surprise last night, and one that was not attended by pleasant feelings. In the early part of the evening they learned that the man who went to Carthage on the afternoon of May 28 with Frank Dobbs, who was arrested on suspicion of having some connection with the murder of Elhi Cordell. had been in the city during the afternoon. The man came to the city on the 4:30 train from Burlington, went directly to Smith Dooley's barn, engaged a rig and driver and left for Cartilage. While the horse was being harnessed the man left his valise at the stable and walked up street, returning in a few minutes. While he was gone several persons examined the valise which corresponded exactly with the description given by Mr. Foote. There was the Macomb hotel card and on the opposite side a slip on which was printed. “J. G. Barnes. Macomb. 111." While it is not thought now that this mat had any connection with the ease, tin* police would like to have seen him. On the way to Carthage he conversed freely with the driver and said he had read accounts of the affair in Keokuk, Chicago and Quincy papers, was sure from tin* description of Dobbs that he was the man who drove for him two weeks ago, but did not explain why he had not revealed his identity. When told that Dobbs was in jail at Carthage and that he might see him, if he desired, tile man said he didn't care to, and. according to tilt' driver, manifested utter indifference as to Dobbs and did not appear to care what became of the fellow because of his connection with him on the unlucky trip to Carthage. The police are wrathy because they were not notified of the man's presence in die city. During yesterday's trip to Cartilage Mr. Barnes said to the driver that he was traveling for a Quincy drug house, and would he through here again in about two weeks. It has been fully established that when Elhi Cordell left Industry it was not with the intention of visiting with her sister at Bowen. Yesterday it was ascertained that shortly before the date of leaving that village tin* girl had w ritten parties in this vicinity making inquiries as to rates and accommodations. The girl, however, it is stated, did not conli' to the place of the proprietors of which she had made inquiry, but the letter they received indicated that she intended leaving her home and to remain away for some time. The parties who received this letter have been linable to find it after diligent search. It is considered a little strange that they did not give information about this letter at an earlier stage of the case but their failure to do so is explained by tin* statement that until it was absolutely settled that the girl had been foully dealt with they did not want to become mixed tip in tin affair. This clue, one of the most important that has been secured, establishes several facts in connection with the girl’s departure from Industry: clearly indicates that suicide was not contemplated, and that when the girl boarded the Wabash train at Golden it was with the intention of coming to this city. It was stated by a gentleman in the city to-day that a girl answering tile inscription of Ella Cordell got off the Wabash train at Elvaston on Saturday, May 17. and aft< visiting two or three houses in that vicinity walked down the railroad track in tin direction of this city. W. F. Foote, who went to Industry yesterday at the solicitation of the dead girl's brother, returned late last night. Of course, he failed to identify T. Z. Creel as tin* man who hired the rig from Smith ^ Dooley on the afternoon of May 27, for the reason that tin* horetofon mysterious individual has been proven to be Mr. Barnes, of Macomb. Mr. Foot! says tile excitement in the little village is intense and many are outspoken in condemnation of Creel, nearly the entire population believing him guilty of having encompassed tile girl's ruin, while public sentiment is divided as to his connection with the foul murder. There does not appear to be any doubt now in the minds of the villagers that the girl was in a delicate condition and left home at the suggestion of and upon the advice of the man who was responsible for her downfall. Before * her disappearance, however, not a breath of suspicion had been directed towards lier, aud the girl enjoyed the esteem and confidence of the entire community. The revelation came to her friends as a thunder clap from a clear sky and was an unwelcome and unpleasant surprise*. Developments, however, have convinced those who fully believed in the girl's virtue and innocence that she fell a victim to the w ile of the betrayer* and paid the penalty of her w rong doing by death. Her many friends, it is said, are determined that the man guilty of the crime shall be discovered and given the punishment he so richly deserves. When Mr. Foote left Industry a paper was being circulated setting forth the facts in the case and petitioning Governor Fifer to offer a suitable reward for the apprehension of the murderer or murderers. To this the good people of Industry and the girl's father will add a considerable sum, thus creating an incentive for detective worn on tile puzzling case. THE STREET CAR STRIKE. Traced to Missouri and Returned to New Boston for Trial* [Special to The Hawk-Eye.) New Boston, IU., June 12.—Some four wrecks ago a farmer, by the name of John Deeds, who lives west of the hamlet of Joy, had two horses stolen from him. The thieves aud horses were, about a week since, located in Missouri, from whence they were brought here and lodged in the county jail. The name of one illegitimate horse purveyor is James Vance, a former merchant of Joy, but who of late years has led a reckless and criminal life, having served a term in our county jail. The other is Bill Pierson, also a resident in the vicinity of Joy, and generally recognized as a “hard case.” On yesterday they were taken before Squire Chamberlain, in this city, where a preliminary hearing was had. They w ere bound over in the sum of $500 each, and being unable to give bail, were returned to the county jail, where they now languish, awaiting trial at the next term of the circuit court.

From the Cineinnati Commereial-Gaxette. A Presbyterian minister of Baltimore has been telling what took place at a private conference of a joint committee of the general assembly of his church and of the Episcopal general convention, to consider on what grounds there could be a union of the two churches. He says: “It found that such unity was a possibility. and that sun* progress towards It could be made by hastening slowly, by holding in abeyance at the outset all questions of non-essentials in religion. WY* found that we were agreed that the great end to be reached was a unity of tin* Christian churches in brotherly compact. We found that the Presbyterian and Episcopal churches were as one in their position in regard to the Holy Scriptures—the Nicene Creed and tin* two sacraments of baptism and tin* Lord’s supper. We found agreement on the doctrines of symbols; and that the Episcopal thirty-nine articles agreed with our thirty-three articles of tin* Confession of Faith. We found that as to the episcopacy, they refer it not to doctrine, but to history- In every church w hat is not placed as doctrine is referred to history. Both denominations ’ consider tin* episcopacy a matter of discipline only; and, therefore, It is an open one, which does not stand in the way of church unity. * *    *    The Westmin ster confession was formulated-by 170 members, only six of whom were from Scotland, the rest being church of England ministers. It was adopted by tin* Presbyteries and by the Scottish church because the object was to unite tin* two kingdoms. The Confession of our church and the articles of the Episcopal Church are as though the same systems were placed face to face in a glass; they are the same in principle. Other matters have since crept into tile Episcopal church, but these are mere excrescences. We know that Cranmer and Calvin were one of the faith and order. After two hundred years to-day we hear a brotherly voice saying: “Why may we not lie brothers?’ and the General Assembly met it in the same spirit. So I feel there is nothing that should interfere with earnest, practical unity.” Probably Hie greatest stumbling-block to a union of the Episcopal with the Presbyterian or Methodist church is that of “historic succession.” although the latter church claims that, while not re-(|iiisite to constitute a valid church, yet that it also has “historic succession” through Wesley, who was originally a strict Church of England minister, or Episcopalian. It is now proposed to have a federation of the leading Protestant churches—that is. t he different churches to retain their denominational differences. but to be united iii a legislative federation.
