The casket was then taken from the church and placed in a hearse, the pallbearers and family, friends aud clergymen entered carriages, the line of march was reformed and the procession slowly took its way to the cemetery.

Enormous Increase in th® Amount and Value of ProvlHionn Sent Abroad. Washington, Oct. 16.—There has been a very extraordinary increase in the exports of provisions from the United States during the last year. In September, 1881*, they amounted to but 87,872,-000, while in September, ISIK), they reached 810,700,000. During the eleven months ended September 30, ISIK), the exports of provisions from the United States were 8108,587,000, while iu the corresponding figure ended September 30, 1880, the total was only 891,215,000. Tht same increase in the exports of dairy products is reported, the total for the nine months ended September 30 being 816,674,000. as against 87.754,000 during the corresponding period of the previous year. A very large portion of the increase went to South America. BPBUKQTON. IOWA. FRIDAY MOENING. OCTOBER 17, 1890. TALE1NC IO IHEioim Chauncey M. Depew and Chief Arthur Address the Convention. Th*r;i“:r M**nat* c°^^thr or- T * ®omPUn»ent» Them I pon Their Conduct Regarding the Central Strike. rfouth Carolina Polit ic*. Washington, Oct. 16.—Private information from South Carolina points to the election of at least four of the republican candidates for congress from that state. This is due to the split in the democratic party. The managers of the Haskell campaign have made an alliance with the negro element and the latter will cast all their votes for the independent state ticket, as the Haskell managers have agreed to protect them in doing so, and they will be allowed to vote for the republican candidates. This deal is likely to change the complexion of the present delegation and send at least four republicans here in the place of the democrats who now occupy the seats. But there is a danger that the negroes may be deceived by their white allies. Arthur W. Street Pardoned. Washington, Oct. 16. —President Harrison has granted a pardon in the case of Arthur W. Street, of Illinois, ex-assistant general freight agent on the Michigan Central railroad, sentenced to pay a fine of 83,000 and costs, for violating the interstate commerce law. Census Figures.

A. Grant, He Refers to Some of the Advantages of the McKinley Bill. Boston, Mass., Get. 16.—Senator Hale of Maine was the special guest of the Boston Boot and Shoe club last night, and he gave the members an extended exposition of the doctrine of “reciprocity.” His proposition was the same as that elaborated by Secretary Blaine for trade with the South and Central American countries. The doctrine, he said, was no infraction of the doctrine of protection under which our great industries are built up, but, on the contrary, is a helper to that doctrine. “We protect,” continued the speaker, “the laborer and mach-anic, the artisan and the manufacturer in the United States against the product in foreign countries of the under-paid laborer, and artisan who make the identical article which we produce, and who, without the imposition of tariff duties, would flood our market with their cheaply made product and drive out of existence our own establishments; but we do not need to protect the shoemaker of Lynn and Haverhill and Brockton, or the manufacturer who em ploys him, or the dalers of Pearl street, who mass and sell the propjet, against the labor which produces jute and other grasses in Mexico; coffees, india-rubber, and gutta-percha in Brazil; hides and !.k1ns in the Argentine republic; soda nitrates in Peru and Chili, and sugar iu Cuba and Porto Rico. F.very invoice of cotton, woolen, or the metals from England, France, or Germany competes with, aud threatens the labor in corresponding branches of the United States, and so protection and tariff duties are invoked for the security and prosperity of our labor against these importations; but every invoice of coffee: sugar, gutta-percha,and the other articles that I have named from the Central and South American states furnishes supplies which we cannot produce, to be used and consumed by us, to be paid by the undespoiled labor of our farms and shops and mines. With Senator Frye’s subsidy measures harnessed with reciprocity I took forward to a bright future for our trade and commerce with the countries lying to the southward.” A Bold Railroad Robbery. Kansas City, Oct. 16.—Last night when the Omaha express on the Missouri Pacific, which leaves the union depot at 8*20 p rn., had stopped at State Line station, a short distance from the union depot, three men without masks, enteied the first chair car. One of them pretended to be a news agent selling papers, while the others covered the passengers with revolvers and compelled them to hand over their valuables. They then made th-ir escape.

En- the Grand n an“Ual °P«m meeting in the Grand Opera house this afternoon. letters were read from p eminent gentlemen expressing regret at their inability to be present. Among them were Governor Campbell, of Ohio; VV rh'iM Beaver, of Pennsylvania; Gee. W. Chiids, of Philadelphia: President Roberts, of the Pennsylvania railroad, ana other prominent railroad officials. After prayer by Grand Chaplain Sorrily, Mayor Gourley welcomed the delegates to the city. Chairman Adams then introduced Hon. Chauncey M. Depew, president of the New York Central Railroad company. The appearance of the distinguished gentleman was the signal for the wildest applause. When order had been restored, Mr. Depew proceeded to delivered an address which was listened to with great interest. Several times he was compelled to pause owing to the deafening applause of his hearers. Mr. Depew spoke highly of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and said that during the period of its existence aud prosperous growth hundreds of labor organizations had been formed aud dissolved. They had been started to carry out novel theories or to put into practice unusual and untried processes. The success of your body is due to its rigid adherant-© to the right principles upon which it founded. No labor organization can permanently succeed whose sole and only object is to increase wages and diminish hours. It lacks the essential bond of mutual sympathy and brotherly help in bearing or lightening each other’s burdens. The tendency of such an organization is inevitably and rapidly to collisions and failure. The fundamental idea of the Engineers’ Brotherhood is, first, charity in support of the sick and injured and contributions to the family of the dead; second, education which perfects the artisan in the theory and practice of his trade and broadens him for larger usefulness as a citizen; third, protection in securing and maintaining your rights. Your record is unexampled in the history nf contact between employer and employe at home and abroad, and the intelligence and prosperity of your members Mr. Depew spoke of the all-pervading idea of the past few years of trusts and said this universal effort to absorb the individual, to divide the people into employing companies and employes, and to destroy competition, will inevitably end in disaster. Hostile legislation and laws of trade will leave only the legitimate enterprises surviving. In the same way and from the same causes there have been several ambitious attempts to form gigantic labor trusts which should combine uuder one central and autocratic authority every occupation in which wage earners could engage. In all such associations of trades and occupations. having nothing in common, certain qualities of audacity, fluency of peech and capacity for manipulating caucuses and conventions, push to the front many men who know little of the great interests confided to their care. Labor must be as intelligent as capital upon its own grounds. The committee which calls upon the employer or railroad officer must know its own business as well as he knows his. Otherwise from angry contention because of ignorance, comes the exercises of brute force and violence fails to secure that which in nine cases out of ten could have been had by an intelligent presentation. Hundreds of committees of our employes have been to see me and I can safely say after the full and free discussion which always took place, not lone of them ever went out of my office except to carry back a satisfactory message to their constituents. The reason for these ready settlements was that the men understood their own business; knew precisely what they wanted and how much the company could afford to concede. But in the operations of what I may call the labor trust I have had different experiences. Mr. Depew cited an instance of where fifteen men at one point on the line were ordered out by the chief of their local assembly, who was a shoemaker, and who took that action because he had a row with passenger conductor. On another occasion a high official in the order called on Mr. Depew, who soon discovered he knew nothing of what he was talking about. The official confessed he never had been in the railway service in his life. Such representatives of organized labor, said Depew, bring it into disrepute both with employers and the public A committee called upon me last fall with a series of cpmplaints, all of which were quickly and satisfactorily adjusted. They then made a demand on behalf of the locomotive engineers, when I informed them that body could speak for itself. They then said their object was to break up the organization of locomotive engineers and gather into one organization, every department of the railway service, if the management of the New York Central would recognize the engineers only through them this result would be brought about and upon a much lower basis than the brotherhood could admit and if we did not do so they would strike and tie up the road. Mr. Depew informed the committee they might do their worst, but that in the matter effecting the brotherhood he would recognize only that body. The threatened strike never came. Speaking of the New York Central strike, Mr. Depew said:    Years of successful trial of fair, frank and friendly discussions with the employes of the New York Central had led him to believe a strike was impossible on that road. In that trust he went abroad on his annual holiday to have his hopes rudely shattered by a cablegram announcing a strike. But the engineers, he added, were Xrue to the relations which for many ymrs had been established and sustained, and it reinvigorated his fading faith in the efficacy of any effort to maintain a satisfactory and permanent understanding between capital and labor. The citizens of New York and of the whole country ow-e to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers a debt of gratitude for the courage, fidelity and intelligence with which they stood by their posts and performed their duties during the recent troubles on the New York Central. Depew touched briefly on the matter of government ownership of railroads. Time does not permit, he said, of a discussion of the effects upon our institutions of the appointment of a million of public servants being given to the administration and made the patronage of the party bosses. He referred to the letter carriers in England who worked long hours and got on an average of six dollars a week. After a vain effort for the betterment of their condition they struck. The government instantly filled their places, put a iwlice beside each new man and dispersed the gatherings of the old ones. In Germany the government owns the railroads locomotive engineer receives about 845 a month and if he deserts his engine he becomes the subject of severe punishment Libraries have been written upon labor and capital but they are mostly trash. In ♦h« varying conditions for complex civilization no general rule seems possible which shall be applicable to all cases as a relief for the antagonism between capital and labor. Every difficulty must be solved upon its own merits. It is just here that the intelligent labor organization, composed only of the occupa-which seeks to secure a right or redress a wrong, can meet its employer upon the grounds which will show their mutual dependence and promote their common benefit. It is just here that ignorance or incompetence on one hand produces irritation and resistance on the other. The period ought to come when the employes in any industry shall not be arrayed in hostile camps against their employes in the same business. When combinations will not be of workers on one hand and officials on the other against each other, but with good sense and friendly disposition he shall meet upon a common ground for a common good and an overwhelming sense of common interest. Grand Chief Engineer Arthur was next introduced and was enthusiastically received. He congratulated the Brotherhood on the healthy condition of its affairs, and said in part: Though there is a oneness of purpose, there is a diversity of opinion, and we hope that during the course of our debates to find equala-tion by which the problem of our difficulties and differences may be solved. It is by honorable action that we have achieved success as a labor organization, not by might, not by loud, boastful assertions of what, owing to our numbers, we might compel corporations to do. No. that never has been our policy. We ask but fair, just dues, nothing more. If there be those who would array labor against capital, I ani not one of them or with them. If there be those who regard the interests of labor and capital as naturally or properly antagonistic, I do not agree with them. The interests of labor and capital are identi-al or, to be more explicit, reciprocal. Any argument respecting labor teidcs which does not distinctly recognize and concede the truth of this proposition must needs be fallacious, and as a matter of fact it is recognized aud conceded by all eminent authorities on the subject. The insurance feature of the brotherhood was touched upon ai length by the speaker. During the fiscal year the brotherhood has paid to widows and orphans and disabled members 8322,500, making a grand total of 83,122,669. Addresses were also made by a number of delegates. Referring to a Chicago telegram stating that a party of western engineers left for this city to champion the cause of the federation. First Grand Assistant Engineer Hayes said; “I know nothing about them. We anticipate no trouble when the time comes for consider-ng the question of federation. I under stand the majority of the western delegates favor sue h a plan, but as to what the outcome of it will be I will not venture an opinion.” LADIES AT LOGGERHEADS. A Split in the Iowa State W. C.

He escaped from Peoria in a balloon and landed here this morning. He does not give the names of the duelist or girl. He is evidently insane. A BIO COMMERCIAL CRASH. Tile Interstate Commerce Commission De* clrle in Favor of the hoard of Trade. Washington, Oct. 16.—The interstate commerce commission in the case of the board of trade of Chicago, complain ants, vs. the Chicago and Alton Railroad company and seven other railroad companies, defendants, and the Armour Packing company and eighteen other packing companies and the board of railroad commissioners of Iowa as interveners, to-day decided in favor of the board of trade of Chicago; opinion by Bragg. The commission orders the defendant railroad carriers to make the same rates on live hogs as on parking house products from Missouri river points and interior points in Iowa and Missouri to Chicago within four weeks from the date of the order. The rates are now and have long been the same upon these commodities from Missouri river points and interior points in the states of Iowa aud Missouri to Mississippi river points and eastern cities, markets and packing houses generally, except Chicago. The commission decides that this discrimination against Chicago is one that is unjust and a violation of section three of the act to regulate commerce. The Northern Pantie Election. New York, Oct. 16.—The Northern Pacific election was held to-day. There was no contest in the election of directors and the only Interest attached to the election was that the new board in accordance with a resolution passed on June 19 will hold the office for three years. A resolution recommending that the directors increase the rate of dividend or declare an extra dividend, was passed unanimously ani the lease of the Wisconsin Central was approved. After the stockholders’ meeting adjourned the directors organized by re-electing the old officers and electing George H. Carl secretary, to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Samuel Wilkeson. The Pullmnn Annual Meeting. Chicago, Oct. 16.—The Pullman Palace Car company held its annual meeting to-day. The directors elected were: George M. Pullman, president; Marshall Field, J. W. Doane. Norman Williams and O. S. A. Sprague, of Chicago; Henry C. Hulbert, of New York, aud Henry R. Reed, of Boston. The usual quarterly divident was declared. The total assets of the company are 84,301,355.40. The net earnings for the year were 82,398,-130.97. Des Moines, Oct. 16.—There was a warm time in the state convention of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union to-day, resulting in a split between the non-partisan and the so-called third-party forces, and the main body receding from the national union. The fight was over the report of the committee on credentials, which recommended the unseating of delegates considered disloyal to the constitution of the Iowa union. The report was finally adopted—200 to 30. The non-partisan forces were led by Mrs. J. Ellen Foster, president*of the Iowa union, who, with a number of supporters, withdrew from the national convention last year. To-day Mrs. Foster answered questions asked by the delegates. The first referred to the resolutions passed by the national body which Mrs. Foster thought ought to convince anybody that the organization was anything bat non-partisan. When asked to explain the position of her faction in the W. Q. T. U., Mrs. Foster replied that the W. C. T. U. had no politics, no position, no political question; but temperance was its object. When asked how the Iowa union could recede from the national union when it itself was partisan, Mrs. Foster replied that the Iowa union had never taken a partisan stand on political questions. When asked to explain her position as a republican to her non-partisanship, Mrs. Foster replied that she as an American woman clung to her right to exercise her liberty under the constitution. She was ait intense republican. A woman could be an intense democrat and yet be a non-partisan worker for emperance. A lady arose and asked if a woman's opinion as a partisan should not be recognized in this convention and Mrs. Foster replied emphatically, “No, there is absolutely no politics in this convention.” The lady said that she felt there was a machine in which our political opinions were not recognized. Mrs. Foster denied that there was any dis-discrimination. Another lady said she had received a communication telling her to act in a 'certain way because it was opposing the action of the third party woman. Airs. Foster said no official action at any time had ever been taken to send such communication, but no woman should be allowed to come into Iowa as a partisan woman working against the interest of the Iowa W. C. T. U. (referring to the case of Mrs. Henry, an official of the Cincinnati national convention.) Confusion followed this. One lady asked Mrs Foster to explain the terms partisan and non-partisan and asked if the action of the Iowa W. C. T. U. did not create a division aud partisanship. Mrs. Foster said the question before the house applied to the politics of workers in organizations and not constitutional divisions, and declared the lady out of order. The lady demanded a hearing. The president put the question and was sustained. The president was asked how a nonpartisan convention could send a message of appreciation to such partisans as Reed and Wilson, and if telegrams would be sent to other partisans besides republicans. Cries of “Yes, yes” arose from all over the house and Mrs. Foster went on to explain It was the temperance sentiment that was appreciated in these men and not their partisanship. At the afternoon meeting a vote was takeu as to whether the Iowa Union should recede from the Francis Willard National Union on account of the third party attitude of that body and the Iowa Union voted to no longer be identified with the National Union. The vote for the Iowa nonpartisan union was 315; for the National Union 68. The defeated delegates then withdrew in a body with the intention of forming an Iowa union on a third party basis. Mrs. Foster declined a re-election to the presidency and Mrs. Mattie Bailey, of Shenandoah, was electee president for the ensuing year. Mrs. M. J. Aldrich, of Cedar Rapids, was re-elected corresponding secretary At the conclusion of the session, Mrs. Foster received a regular ovation and was presented with several fine mementos of the occasion. The real work will be taken up to-morrow and finished. Mrs. J. Ellen Foster will hereafter reside at Washington. About forty mem hers of the non-partisan branch met this evening and organized an Iowa union, with Mrs. Mary A. McGarigle, of Des Moines, as president. DILLON AND O BRIEN. R. G. Peters, » Michigan Lamber Baron Falls far *3,000,000. Manistee. Mich., Oct. 16.—R. G. Rotors assigned to-day. It is the largest financial crash in the state for years and comes from a source least expected. Peters was the leading spirit in a score of big enterprises and was a baron in the lumber and salt trade. The assignment covers millions of dollars worth of property and will be far reaching in its effects. No schedule of assets or liabilities has yet been filed here. From outside but reliable sources it is said the liabilities will be fully 83,000,000 with assets in various banks, lumber companies, salt mines, etc. The plant here has been making enormous profits but the outside ventures, as a rule, have been disastrous, especially in the Alabama and North Carolina lumber ventures. It is thought the assests in Manistee, Grand Rapids and the lands of the Northern Peninsular and Southern State lumber. etc., if judiciously handled will cover the liabilities. It. is said the only banks likely to suffer are in Manistee, Muskecan and Grand Rapids as it is said the Detroit banks for a short time past Peters’ paper. Grand Rapids, Mich., first effects of Hie great was felt here to-night when it was announced that the firm of Arthur Meigs A Co., in which Peters was interested, had filed mortgages asrcregatintr nearly 8300 -000, covering ail their property.

[Special to The Hawk-Eye. I Davenport, la., Oct. 16.—The case of The State of Iowa vs. Reid, murder in the second degree, which has been on trial here for the past four days, suddenly terminated here to-day with a verdict of not guilty. The defendant in this case is one Dr. James A. Reid, aphysieianof the eclectic school and an ex-president of the Iowa State Eclectic Medical Society. He was charged by the State of Iowa with the commission of a criminal operation upon one Clara Mathews, or Clara Sugg, as alleged by the defense, the operation resulting in the death of the mother and child. The operation is alleged to have been committed here on or about February 19, 1*90. and the woman died at Buffalo, a little village a few miles west of here, March 23, following. The defense made strenuous efforts to have the case removed from this county on account of the feeling against the defendant here, this being the second or third time he had been called to make defense against criminal actions of this sort, and it being a matter of common repute that his practice largely embraced such work, but Judge Ilowat ruled against a change of venue. The defendant then engaged a formidable array of counsel and went to work. The only direct evidence that the operation was performed was a statement made in writing and sworn to by the deceased upon her death-bed. This wa# the strong point in the case of the state. The law regarding the admission of dying declarations as evidence is peculiar. and for three days the attorneys have been battling upon this point in the absence of the jury, the point raised by the defense being that the deceased did not realize that she was upon the verge of the grave, or that she had not hope of life, or that her death was imminent and immediately at hand, and that, in consequence of so failing to realize, her statement lost the force of a dying statement such as is admisible as evidence, and hence could not be presented to a jury as such. This question has been ably and exhaustively argued, and this afternoon Judge W. F. Bran nan, of Muscatine, before whom the trial was had. decided that the alleged dying declaration could not go to the jury. Thereupon the state rested, the defense likewise, and in a few moments the defendant was given a verdict of acquittal under the instruction of the court. I AlllMon at Shenandoah.
