Burlington Hawk Eye (Newspaper) - June 18, 1890, Burlington, Iowa THE BURLINGTON HAWK-EYE. ESTABLISHED: JUNE, 1839.)BURLINGTON, IOWA, WEDNESDAY MORNING, JUNE 18, 1890- (PRICE: 15 CENTS PER WEEK. SILVER PASSES THE SENATE. Vote of 42 to 25. The Title of the Hill Amended—Mr. Wolcott’s Speech—The House—Various Hills Under Consideration-General Capital News. and misled by that cry of expansion, and when the break comes it is not the poor or the debtor who will have profited, but the very people whom these gentlemen The House Measure Adopted by a are now howling against so strongly, that will have made all the money. Mr. Vest called Edmunds’ attention to the fact that the democratic house, in 1877, passed a free coinage act, which, he said, was mutilated by the republican senate. Mr. Edmunds—The democratic party being in the majority in the house in 1877 or 1888 did pass a contrivance of this kind (just as it is trying to pass it now) in order to appeal to the worst instincts of the people, to do something which might bring it into power. It accomplished its purpose and Cleveland was elected. And having been elected by their votes, Cleveland was wise enough and brave enough to tell his democratic supporters that that sort of delusion could not be carried into practice. The democratic party was wise enough, for a wonder, to be absolutely silent for four years on that topic. No patriot opened Ii is mouth to bark at the administration of President Cleveland because he persistently and steadily declined to be betrayed or seduced into destroying the prosperity of the people of the United States by advising such a measure as this we have now. No democrat in either house during the four years of Cleveland’s administration opened his lips to relieve the suffering people—suffering from the want of coinage of silver dollars. And therefore I say, with great respect to my friend from Kansas and to everybody else, that this bill is now a platform (renewed from 1878 to 1890) of the democratic party when it has no responsibility, and I agree that it ought never to have any, and that its purpose is to tangle the republican party and deliver it over to the democratic party. The question was taken on Reagan’s amendment and it was agreed to without division. Teller moved to add the following as a new section:    “That the cer tificates provided for in the act shall be receivable for all taxes and dues to to the United States of every description and shall be legal tender fertile payment of all debts public and private.” After a long discussion it wras modified at the suggestion of Eustis, by adding the words “and all silver certificates already issued” and as so modified it was agreed to—yeas 34; nays 22. Mr. W limb moved to insert the following as an additional section:    “The owners of bullion deposited for coinage shall have option to receive coin or its equivalent or certificate provided for in this act, and such bullion shall be subse-luently coined;” agreed to without division. The bill was then reported to the senate and all the amendments agreed to in the committee of the whole agreed to in the senate—yeas, 40, nays, 26. Mr. Chandler moved to insert the following amendment:    No    gold or silver bullion shall be received by the treasury department under this act except such as shall bo shown to be the product of mines within the United States. Mr. Teller moved to lay the amendment on the table. Agreed to—yeas, 42, nays, 25. The bill as amended was then passed—yeas 42, nays 25—as follows: Yeas—Bates, Berry, Blodgett. Butler, Call, Cameron, Cockrell, Cooke, Colquitt, Daniel, Eustis, George, Gorman, Harris, Hearst, Ingalls, Jones of Arkansas, Jones of Nevada, Kennti, Manderson, Mitchell, Moody, Morgan, Paddock, Pasco, Payne, Pierce, Plumb, Power, Pugh, Ransom, Reagan, Sanders, Squire, Stewart, Teller, Turpie, Vance, Vest, Voorhees, Walthall, Wolcott—42.

The title of the bill was amended so as to read “An act to provide for free coinage of gold and silver bullion and for other purposes.” The bill for the admission of Wyoming was taken up so as to make it “unfinished business” anti the senate adjourned. lo tin4 bill secretary, the house and debast1 Washington, June IT.—After preliminary business tile senate took up the house silver bill and Mr. Wolcott spoke on the measure. Mr. Wolcott said when the senators who lived in the silver producing states were accused of holding sordid and unworthy and it patriotic opinions arid when it was said that those who were demanding that silver be restored to its old place with its sister metal were speculators and adventurers and were indifferent to the true welfare of the country, he would have to be pardoned for feeling that he had the right to claim the attention of the senate long enough to protest against, such intimations and against such method of conducting the debate. If it were true (as it was not) that the people of the silver producing states were governed in the matter by the desire to protect the industry on which their prosperity depended, large warrant was given to them for such course by some of the eastern states. The country (particularly the northern states) seemed to have fallen on days when politics were rated at a commercial value alone and when political fealty was made to depend upon whether the prosperity of tile locality where the voter resided was to be better fostered by competition with other countries, or by large and prohibitory duties which ^radically excluded foreign competition. The prosperity of the people of the mountain states of the west had ever to rest chiefly and the products of their mines. Yet, while they were less benefitted than any other region of country by high protective tariff, they were asked every session to stand by duties which the east formulated. And when they asked that silver should also be protected, they were told that they were sordid and unpatriotic and that their ideas were those of dissatisfied and visionary people. Wolcott went on to criticize the unfriendly attitude of the administration toward the silver question, and saiil that when Harrison was nominated his record was searched iii vain for any noteworthy aet or saying; that the republican leaders of the west made great efforts among the farmers and miners and secured the success of the ticket; t hat the president had not exactly materialized on the silver question and the awakening had been rather rude. 11(5 ventured the opinion that if the president’s opinion on that question had been announced before the last, election not, a single state west of the Missouri river would have given a republican majority, not because; the majority of people of those states were not trite and staunch and earnest, republicans, but because they would have wished to rebuke overwhelmingly the party that selected as their standard bearer one who was unmindful of the interests of the country and disregardful of the will of the great majority of the members of the party. An open foe was to be preferred to tin* secret enemy. The recommendat ion of the. secretary of the treasury struck viciously at, the interests of the silver. The; act of 1878 was i ii ti iii bol y preferable recommended by the The whole purpose of hill seemed to he to degrade silver, to make it. a commodity to reduce it to one of the baser metals, and to prevent its again taking its pl;(eh as a standard of value. Iii conclusion, Wolcott said the silver hill was of far greater importance than the election hill, anti-gerrymandering hill or tariff bill. The conclusion of Wolcott’s maiden speech in Hie senate was attended with great applause aud compliments from the senators. The senate then voted on the amendment reported by tho finance committee, striking out of the holist; silver hill the provision that treasury notes issued for silver shall he legal tender for all debts, public anti private. The amendment was rejected—yeas I I, nays 50—and the provision remains in the bill. The second amendment, striking out tin'bullion redemption clause, was agreed to—yeas nays, 7. The third amendment, striking out the sixth section for the free coinage of silver «whcn tilt' market price is out dollar tor 371 L grains of pure silver, wa; rejected yeas. 16, nays. 46. The amendment, fixing a limitation of tilt' act to ten years was rejected—yeas, 4, nays, 64. On motion of Plum the following was substituted for the first, section of lilt; house hill—yeas, 43, nays, 24— that from and after the date of the pass agt'of this aet the unit of value in the United States shall be the dollar and the saint* maybe coined of 412la' grains of standard silver or of 25 S-10 grains of standard gold and said coins shall bo legal tender for all debts, public or private: that thereafter any owner of silver or gold bullion may deposit the same at any mint of the United States lobe formed into standard dollars or bars folios bene tit, and without charge hut it shall be law ful u> refuse any deposit of loss value than one hundred dollars or any bullion so hast' as to he unsuitable for the operation of the mint. Mr. Mitchell addressed the senate and in the course of his remarks declared any administration which would set it self up against the free and unlimited coinage of the silver dollar would be, as it deserved to be, hurled from power. Mr. Plumb moved to add a new section to come in as section 2, as follows: “Tiiat the provisions of section 3 of the aet to authorize the coinage of the standard silver dollar and to restore its legal tender character, which became a law February 8. I STS. is hereby made applicable to the coinage in this aet provided for,” agreed to without division. Mr. Kagan offered the following amendment as a substitute for sections 3,4 and 5: Section 3. That the certificates provided for in this aet shall be of denomination of not less than one, nor more than one hundred dollars, and such certificates be redeemable in coin of standard value. A sufficient sum to carry out the provisions of this act is hereby appropriated out of any money in the treasury not otherwise appropriated. The provision in section one of the act of February 28, 1S7S, which requires the secretary of the treasury to purchase at the market price not less than two nor more than four million dollars worth of silver bullion per month, is hereby repealed. Mr. Edmonds—without interfering with the fine symposium we are having, I wish to say, I ain opposed to the bill as it now stands and to every onelgrt its amendments in general and in particular, and that I ani not to be called upon hereafter to account for having allowed the amendment to pass without calling for the yeas and nays. I am willing lo deliver over to the democratic party the management of finances for the time being. I only state this in order that I may not trouble the senate with demanding the yeas and nays on various ornamentation that are being given to this hoodlum which is set up [Laughter]. Mr. Plumb retorted sharply and asked what Edmunds is going to do with the republican platform, and intimated that Edmunds does not represent the republican party. Mr. Edmunds replied that he stands by the republican party platform, but that the democrats and their deluded followers have abandoned that platform and transformed it into one which no democratic convention ever dared make and which no democratic administration and no democratic house of representatives ever dared propose, because they knew the people of the United States would swiftly find out they had been deluded Tile House. Washington, June 17.—After some unimportant business the house went into committee of the whole on the sundry civil approporation bill. The committee soon rose and reported the bill back to the house. An amendment adopted in the committee of the whole making it a specific in lieu of an indefinite appropriation for the payment of back pay was rejected and a motion to recommit the bill with instructions to the committee on appropriations to re port it back with a clause making spe eitic appropriations for back .pay and bounties: rejected. The bill then passed. The house then went into committee of the whole on the Indian approprition bill. An appropriation of $20,000 to refund tin* Cherokee Indians the expense of their removal to the Indian territory was stricken out. Fending further action tin* committee rose and tin* holist adjourned. SHOT DOP BY INDIANS. A Terrible Massacre of Cowboys Reported in New Mexico. Nine Men Shot Down in Cold Blood—One Escapes to Tell the Tale—A Posse in Pursuit of the Indians— The Mine Disaster. Elpasg Texas, June 17.—A freight crew which arrived over the Southern Pacific road report when they arrived at Sepore station. New Mexico, this morning they found the town in the wildest excitement over the arrival of a cowboy who had just reached there from a ranch ten miles north, where he and ten other men were camping. Ile stated that last night a band of Indians surrounded them and shot them down. He thought there about thirty Indians. The cowboys had been abed but a short time when the attack was made. Some of them were armed but did not have guns handy, not expecting to find Indians on the warpath in that section. Ile saw three men drop and thinks the rest shared the same •fate. A posse has gone after the Indians. A BLOODY BATTLE. morning. Albertson’s troubles, it is said, are due to the operations of a dishonest clerk, who in the absence of Albertson bought a large amount of wheat. When the market went against him yesterday the clerk left the country.- POLITICAL. Negroes Engage in a Pitched Hattie in an Alabama Mining Town. Birmingham, June 17.—A pitched battle between negroes and white men took place yesterday at Brookside, a mining town sixteen miles from here. and over one hundred shots were fired on both sides. Thos. Redmond, leader of the negroes, was killed, and Jim Dowell wounded. Seven others were less seriously wounded. Only one white man was injnred. Several negroes were caught by whites who threatened to lynch them last night. The sheriff sent a force of men to the scene, but at last accounts they had not succeeded in restoring order, and more bloodshed is expected, as both sides are well armed. The fight grew out of hitting a negro with a stone. THE ENTOMBED MINERS. Hancock County, Illinois, Republican Convention.

None of the Ill-Fated Farm Hill Colliery Miners Rescued. Dunbar, Pa., June 17.—All night long rescuing parties remained at the mouth of the manhole at the Farm Hill mine, but their efforts to help the unfortunate men entombed in the burning mine were fruitless. The sights about the pits at the mouth were all the mon; pitiable because of the twenty-four hours of anguish that have rolled over the heads of the relatives and friends of the entombed miners, and hundreds stand sleadily at the mouth gazing at the columns of smoke that grow thicker and thicker hour by hour, indicating that it is coal now burning instead of timber and roofing. The mine inspector is making strenuous efforts to enter from the Mahanoy drifts. An air fan to furnish ventilation to the mine will be put iii operation this afternoon in the Ferguson pit, as work will also be commenced there. The mine is so located that a flooding of the fin; is impossible, and smothering it means certain death to the men below, providing they are living. Nearly all the mines in this region are closed down and men, money and provisions are pouring iii on every train. Slight hope was raised at noon by the return of one of tile rescuing party who reported that far down iii the slope he heard a mule braying. This leads to the belief that the men may yet be living. At 9:00 p. rn. smoke was issuing from the shaft thicker than ever, but the rescuers are hard at work in the Maheening mine and hope is still entertained that the imprisoned men, or some of them, may be alive in the rear chambers. Together They Weigetl Only One Pound and Three-Quarters. Pittsburg, Pa., June 17.

She was sure that last Wednesday the weight of the two was not more than three-fourth; of a pound anda half-pound respectively Either child could be hidden under a quart measure, or both could be stowed away comfortably in an ordinary overcoat pocket. Botli have black hair and very pretty faces. “OHR MARY’’ IS A BRIDE. Mary Anderson Quietly Married to Antonio de Navarro. Only Her Relatives Present at the Ceremony — Salisbury’s Threats — The Cholera—American Riflemen Welcomed at Berlin. London, June 17.—At ten minutes after eleven o’clock this morning, in the little Roman Catholic church at St. Mary’s in Holly place, Hempstead. Mary Anderson and Antonio de Navarro were married. The ceremony was very simple. Efforts were made to keep the ceremony trictly private. Miss Anderson herself decorated the altar, buying palms and white flowers from the poorest shops and families in the neighborhood. This morning the whole family attended mass and partook of holy communion. Despite the secrecy, 500 persons had squeezed themselves into the narrow lane that leads to the chapel, and crowded around the church door, making ingress and egress almost impossible. A little after eleven o’clock young Navarro arrived in a cab and ten minutes later five carriages containing the bride and guests drove up. Miss Anderson was dressed in white satin, trimmed with real lace and real orange blossoms. She looked divinely, and, wreathed in smiles, was the picture of happiness. Absolutely no one but the occupants of the carriages were admitted to the church, but the police had the greatest difficulty in keeping out the surging crowds. Mr. Griffin led the bride to the altar. He was followed by Mrs. Griffin. The ceremony was performed by the rector. Canon Pursed, unattended by any assistant priests. The bride and groom knelt at the altar rails beneath an arch of palms. The canon then made a brief, impressive address, his words bringing tears to Miss Andersons eyes and he himself showing signs of deep feeling. After the celebration of low mass the organ played two wedding marches, and at 12:15 o’clock the family drove back to Mr. Griffin’s residence, where tin* wedding breakfast was eaten. Mr. de Navarro handed Rector Pursed an honorarium of £500 at the conclusion of the ceremony. On leaving the church “Our Mary” was loudly cheered. Mrs. Navarro said that she and her husband expected to pass their honeymoon in Switzerland and that she had decided to retire from the stage in accordance with the wishes of Mr. Navarro, unless she loses the suit brought against her by Mr. Abbey. In that event she will act one season to till the contract which he claims. Marshalltown, was cracked Sunday night and nearly S3.000 in bank drafts taken, besides $300 in cash. The paper is not negotiable. No clew to the identity of the thieves has yet been obtained. Two Fatal Accidents.—Two probably fatal accidents occurred in Mason City yesterday. An aged gentleman named Tipton was kicked by a horse, and a member of the firm of Hubbard Bros, of Clear Lake was kicked in the temple by an animal.

Poisoned by the Od ii of Flowers —All of the members if the Methodist church choir iii Ft. Dodge were seized by a sudden illness while singing during the service Sunday evening. They were carried into the open air. where several were revived, while others had to be taken home. To-day several of the afflicted ones were still confined to their beds. The church was lavishly decorated with flowers, and it is thought that their odor overpowered the singers. All the symtoms of poisoning were exhibited. FIELD DAY CONTESTS.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Bushnell, 111., June 17.—P. Z. Creel, of Industry, the young man who is charged with the murder of Miss Ella Cordell of that place was in this city Satuarday.

Yesterday a dcteetiivo arrivel here iii search of Creel. A good deal of interest is taken in tho mysterious matter in this locality.

Urging; the Defeat of the Lottery Bill. Chicago, June 17.—Miss Willard and Mrs. Buell, president and secretary of the National W. C. T. U. have, in behalf of that organization sent official letters to the Louisiana legislature urging the defeat of the lottery bill. Tory Kickers Controlled by Lord Salisbury’s Threats. London, June 17.—Salisbury has brought his dissatisfied followers to time by a threat to dissolve parliament and appeal to the country. This would involve the certain retirement to private life of many tories and most of the unionists liberals, with the possibility of the return of Gladstone to power, so the kickers reluctantly submitted. The government plan is to amend the rules of the house so as to carry unfinished bills forward to the next session and to make the passage of these rules a question of confidence. Belfour admitted yesterday that there is no chance of passing the Irish land purchase hill this session. The best parliamentary judges say the same of the other two important government measures—the licensing and the tithes bills—so that the whole of next season will probably be taken up with the unfinished work of the present one. The liberals, while making a show of resistance to the new rules, will be delighted at their adoption and will make them tin* means of forcing through many radical reforms when they again come into power. _ GENERAL FOREIGN NEWS.

The ll (Hist* Will Probably Pass the Senate Silver Bill Washington, June 17.—Opinion says the probable action of the house on the senate silver bill will differ very widely. There is a belief tin the part of some that before any action is taken, a caucus will be held to decide upon the course to be pursued. There is a sentiment even among the friends of the bill as it passed the senate that it will get into conference. and that out of that conference will be evolved a bill providing for the purchase four and one-half million ounces of silver per month, the eertiti-eates issued in payment thereof to be legal tender and not redeemable in bullion. Such measures, it is generally believed. would receive the president’s approval. The free coinage advocates express the opinion that the house will pass the senate bill. The Semite Original Package Bill Considered. Washington, June 17.—The senate original package bill was again under consideration before the house judiciary committee to-day. So far the proceedings have been confined to a critical analysis of the existing laws, supreme court decisions and constitutional provisions.

It is also said that tin* switchmen at Erie, Dunkirk, Buffalo and every other point on the eastern division of the Lake Shore road are only waiting for word from Cleveland to join the strike. At a meeting this morning the strikers decided to remain steadfast. There are now six hundred men out. The Proposed Lottery Amendment. Baton Rouge, La., June 17.—The committee reports on the proposed lottery amendment were presented in the house to-day. They go over until tomorrow. A Big Gold Export to be Made.

Herr Miguel, as president of the Schuetzen Bund, will deliver the address at the banquet. The Bigness of Little Men. Did you ever notice it? The airs and consequence of a person are usually in inverse ratio to his real importance. The president of a railroad, or of the United States, does not‘always have time for what frontiersmen disrespectfully call “lugs” and “frills,’’ but if you would contemplate real grandeur look out for the captain of a target company or the marshal of a division on St. Patrick’s day. tine of the most important men that I know is a small reporter for a small paper, a man who is always bustling, yet* never doing much. He habitually wears his eyebrows high aud his eyelids drooping, his whole expression declaring that ii would be a great relief if the world would cease to ex pect such prodigies of genius, industry and enterprise from him. Whenever he has occasion to write that Mamie Smith celebrated her Sth birthday on the previous evening and that her mot her gave her a doll and a children’s party, he first seats himself,' flings out his elbows as if he wanted a larger office for his brain, dabs ilia brow with a handkerchief, extracts a pound of letters and papers from his pockets, runs through them with an air as if he were an international arbitrator and each scrap were a letter from a king, then solemnly pens four lines about Mamie Smith. This function performed he lays his copy on the city editor’s desk with a weary yet condescending air, as who should say, “It has cost me years of toil, yet* for friendship's sake I give it to you,” and after exchanging a few remarks in a loud voice goes forth to record the attractions of a-mission fair and'concert.—Brooklyn Eagle. Servants’ Tips. When Pope decided that he could not afford to dine with the Duke~of Montagu because each dinner involved a disbursement of five guineas to the servants of the Montagu house, the duke sent with his subsequent invitation to the poet an order for the amount in question. Thus the difficulty attending “rails” or tips was overcome in tHis instance. To avoid paying them was impossible, and indeed a writer in The World-famous for its contributions from Lord Chesterfield—hints that a certain noble lord, by connivance with his servants, really compelled his guests to defray the cost of the entertainments afforded them! At length, however, it was decided to put a stop to this system of extortion, and at a meeting of gentlemen in Scotland in the year 1700 it was resolved that in visiting one another they would gi\e no money to servants nor allow their own domestics to take any money fro iii their guests. A few days later the honorable company of Scots bunters, at their meeting held in Edinburgh, came to a similar determination, although one noble lord vigorously opposed the proposition and threatened to knock down ttie first servant who refused to accept a gratuity. The servants themselves naturally looked upon the movement with disfavor; and in 1764 c*ertain gentlemen who had resisted the payment of vails were attacked in Ranelagh Gardens by an angry mob of footmen.— Chambers’ Journal.

From the information and the evidence, the lady was disturbed by the hoodlum element of Belknap that tried to peep into her dressing apartment while she was changing costume for the different acts. She told them several times to leave, but one by the name of Toole and a few others persisted in looking. and she filled her revolver with soap and having a blank cartridge behind it, tired it at the said Toole which filled his clothing with soap.

In retiring the portion that has thus far been takeu in the company has authorized and put out an issue of 8554,000 preferred four per cent stock.” The by-laws were changed so as to devolve on the president most of the duties heretofore discharged by the vice president.

In this respect^ resembles bull beef more than any other. Itis’darker in color and looks more moist than beef. It lias a peculiar smell and a peculiar sweetness of taste. Its flavor is generally considered to lie half way between the flavors of beef and game; it is something like the flavor of hare. One reason why horse flesh i*s as p. rule darker iu color than beef'is that horses which are poleaxed,- or which have died from injury, disease or old age, are not properly bled and dressed by the slaughterer. It is, however, by its fat that horse flesh is most easily distinguished. The fat of horse flesh is not generally mixed with the lean. It.is yellow in color. It looks more moist, than tho fat of beef. It soon melts and soon becomes rancid. Consequently, unless a rapid sale is effected or the fat removed, an advanced price must be charged in order to secure the butcher from loss on unsold meat. Lastly, horseflesh can be distinguished from%>eef by its chemical characteristics, and it is in this way that it may l>e recognized when mixed with other substances. Who can tell, except the chemist, what are the compofient parts of at sausage, poleny or saveloy? ^Or who can tell by taste what those parts are? We do not judge by taste; we judge by flavor, and in the making of flavor—to use Sam Weller’s phrase—“ifs the seasoning as does it.” — Nineteenth Century. W. C. Brown’s Advancement.

Safe Blowers at Work.—The safe of the J. D. Vail Bottling company, at Trade with South America. American manufacturers have been in the habit of forwarding to Columbia such goods as they thought the Columbians would buy, and have tnen been surprised to find they made no sales. Many of these goods were absolutely dead stock, for the simple reason that the people had no idea of how to use them or could not apply them. What is the use, for example, of shipping a reaper to farmers that grow no wheat? Some of the goods sent out could not be sold, because* in a country of canoes and pack mules they could not be carried. For instance, the standard American white cotton is woven twenty-seven inches wide. This cannot be sold in Columbia, because with pack mules the carga, or pack, must not be more than twenty-two inches long, as otherwise it will gall the hips and shoulders of#the animals. American cotton cen be roped bn a pack mule, with the bolts lashed vertically, but such a pack is very apt to get disarranged, and the cargero, or muleteer, charges more for the trouble he is put to. Naturally the merchants in the Interior cf the country purchase English or German cotton, woven to forty-four and folding to twenty-two inches.—Alfred Balch in Century. Yaughc-lm, the famous Hanoverian sportman, slew wild boars by the hundreds, but ran away from a table upon which there was a roasted pig, or fainted if unable to beat a hasty retreat. JuilKe ShiraH* Decision Filed at Dubuque How It Will Effect Settler*. Dubuque* June 17.—Judge Shiras has filed iii th** United States court her** his decision in the case of the United States vs. th** Des Moines River Navigation company, Litchfield, et. a1. Tin* trial of this ease on th** issues and tin* evidence was begun before him at Ft. Dodge June 3. John S. Stone, attorney general of Iowa, and W. S. Clark, of Des Moines, appearing for til** complainant, and Benton J. Hall, of Chicago, for tile Navigation company, and Hatch A Connor, of Des Moines, for Litchfield, et. a1. This bill was instituted by order of emigres* and tin; department of justice after the defeat of the Des Moines river land settlers iii the supreme court of the United States, th*; theory being that the settler* having no ti ti*; had no standing in court, to complain as defendants, while th** government, having surrendered the title to defendants, or rather to th*; state of Iowa, which then assigned it, could not be heard on tin* question whether tin* conditions of tin* grants bad not been disregarded and tin* grant, therefor**, violated. Tin* bill alleged thut defendants had not complied with the conditions of the grant, and that. tin* act of congress in June, 1862, confirming tin* company’s ti ti**, wa* not applicable to lands then in possession of other *<*tti**r*. Judge Shiras says: “Under the decisions of the supreme court of the United States this court can not reinvestigate the question of title to lands held by the navigation company and by parti* * holding under it. If thesis to be any modification of th*; rulings of th** supreme court as to the effect of th** act of 1886, such modification in view of the fact that the United state* is complainant in the present action, must be nought in the supreme court of the United State*, this court considering itself precluded from an examination of the questions by the many ruling* already made by the supreme court The bill of the complaint i* therefore dismissed.” It is held that strong equities exist in favor of the actual settlers on the land which entitle them to consideration at the hands of congress, but that any relief to be had must be sought through legislative action, the court being power less tinder the circumstances.

Will Secure Indemnity to .Settler*. Des MoiNES^June 17.—The decision of Judge Shiftf- in the Des Moines river land case ha- been received here by Attorney General Stone. The attorney general, after carefully reading the d< eision, say* that while it i- technically in favor of the defendant* it will no doubt result in securing indemnity to the set tiers, toll*; applied in in the purchase of their hora* *. Judge Shira- recommend-that some such action be now taken by congress. The attorney general's showing was that the features of this case had never before been presented to the court arid that the former decisions were not applicable. On this point Judge Shira holds that while there is much foundation for this claim, ye he is precluded from giving a construction to those acts other or different from that announced by the supreme court. If any modification of these rulings is to be made it can only be made by the supreme court. As to the equities of the settlers, Judge Shiras says the obligation resting upon the United States is not a matter of sentiment based solely upon sympathy for the settlers. Many of these have paid the United States for the lands held by them and hold patents issued by the government. It now appears that the government, through congress, granted away these lands and the title is held to be only waste paper. The wrong thus caused can only be remedied by the Belter for Burlington Shippers.
