Sept. 2.—In the senate rts presented resolutions of the So Merchants’ exchange favoring roeity with nations to the north and -th of the United States. he house bill in relation to lotteries reported from the postoffice commit-■ and placed on the calendar with a Boation by Sawyer that he would ask Its consideration as soon as the tariff passed. Quay gave notice that he would the senate on Saturday the 13th, to Ider the resolutions relative to the of Samuel .T Randall. The tariff bill was then taken up and sugar schedule was considered. - Carlisle gave notice that he would s~e* to strike out all the paragraphs ve tc\sugar bounties. Mr Hale offered the reciprocity adient, of which he had given noon June loth, and addressed the te upon it. He referred to the roily message of President Harrison, Mr. Blaine’s letter and the attitude support of it and to an increasing i earnest discussion of the subject, assured the senators who representee sorghum and beet sugar districts t he was not in antagonism with them. " those senators objected to the policy trying to secure some of the benefits rn those countries for the repeal of "tariff on their sugur, he asked them V much more they ought to object to unreserved repeal of those duties. It Id be, he declared, a policy not much t of lunacy to repeal the sugar duties ss the repeal was used to obtain some efitsfor the products of American 4 r. To him, one thing was as sure as tides and sunset, and that was that policy suggested by the president and retary of state, and which had secured attention and approval of the wisest tesmen in the last thirty years, <) a policy that came to stay th the American people. There never a time more fitted to try the plan or periment than now, and to his mind amendment which he offered was the J, fitting solution of the question. *>e made a long statement of the re-pts and expenditures of the goverment the probable effect of the tariff bill finances. He said the total expeditor the current fiscal year would be ut $411,000,000 and the total revenues eluding postal receipts and every-ng) would be $400,000,000. If there re no tariff bill to be passed and if the nation remained unchanged there uld be a surplus of revenue over ex-nditures for the current fiscal year of 9,000.000. He had not included in the penditures the amount that would be d for silver, or the claims against the vernment other than those which have ssed congress. He figuress out increase of $27,000,000 of reve-e under the pending bill as against a reaseof sixty and one-half million from tting sugar and other articles on the list. So that thirty-three and one-f million had to be taken off from the plus of forty-nine million leaving some teeen millions surplus at the end of the " r; paying nothing on the sinking nd. Taking in account the balance wfnthe treasury $107,000,000, and the plus. Mr. Allison calculated the secretary of e treasury would have $78,000,000 on efirst of July 1891, unless in the mean-me he redeemed the 4% per cent bonds he (Allison) hoped the secretary would eed to do without delay. He declared in his judgment, it was a wise !ng to take off the sugar duties. He lad not the slightest fear there would be y danger from it to the treasury. Ctr-nly not within several years to come. He was also in favor of a further ex-^nsion of reciprocal trade, but hoped tin any such arrangement it would seen to that the United States had its list share of the bargain. Mr. Gibson offered an amendment to he sugar schedule by adding the words “syrup of beet, syrup of cane.” He made an argument against the sugar bounty proposition and said it was a miserable dwindling away from Blaine’s broad and generous proposition of full ^reciprocity. Mr. Sherman expressed his views on the subject of reeipi icily and spoke of the difficulties in the way of reciprocity by the treaiy. The first proposition of Hale’s amendment was a most startling one. it authorized the president of the Inked States, without further legislation, to declare tie1 ports of the United States free and open to all products of My nation of the American hemisphere upon which no export duties are im posed. Was Cuba, he asked, a na hon? Ho knew Senator Hale said to-day that he meant to include Cuba. But was Canada embraced in that list of nations? He had asked the senator that question and the senator had replied “No, no: that is quite a different thing.” And yet it any reciprocal trade Arrangements were made with any county, they ought to be made with Canada. ; He went on to criticize unfavorably the Hale amendment as one that would allow the free importation of wool, copper Aine, iron, gold, silver, lead ores, etc I out was informed by Hale that the amendment had not been carefully drawn, but simply intended to propose the principle of reciprocity. His own amendment had been intended to apply to only three or four articles, sugar, coffee, rub ber and nitrates. He was reminded by Sherman that Cuba produced no coffee aud no rubber, so the arrangement with I Cuba could only be as to the article of sugar. I Mr. Hale—If there is nothing to trade upon with edvantage, then there will be uo trade made. The plan which I suggested is comprehensive, but is not de-jjultive. If there is nothing to make a ^ainupon that settles the question, u k: herman—My friend from Maine whittling down this magnificent the-| °rLun^ there is nothing of it left.

Washington, Sept. 2.-—In the house this morning tho Clayton-Brickenridge case was taken up. Mr. Cooper, of Ohio, opened the debate. He described the state of affairs leading up to the assasiuation of Clayton and said it was the opinion of the majority that the murder grew directly out of the political methods adopted in that country. In that view the majority echoed almost the universal sentiment of all sections. Ballot box stealing and stuffing, intimidation and murder naturally followed each other. In conclusion he passed a high econium on the people and the state of Arkansas, contending that if the election method in vogue in that state were abandoned, the commonwealth would soon be, alive with industry and riches. Mr. Wilson, of Missouri, joined the gentleman from Ohio in his panegyric upon the people of Arkansas, but he regretted the gentleman only to-day discovered how good the people of Arkansas were; if he had discovered sooner he could never have signed the majority report. The instigator of this investigation was Powell Clayton. But Powell Clayton was the dead man s brother, and while he would not say to Powell Clayton in the language of the Almighty, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay,” he could not forget that fact, lf Powell Clayton could divest himself of the baleful influence of “Poker Jack” McClure, he would be himself again and would not pursue Breckinridge from a motive of vengeance. The case then went over until to-morrow and Cannon took the floor in a statement relative to the appropriations made by this session of congress. Mr. Sawyers, a member of the appropriations committee, reviewed the financial situation from tile democratic standpoint. The bill was passed declaring Rock Island a port of delivery. The speaker annoucced the appointment of Flick, of Iowa, as a member of the Raum investigation committee in place of Smyser, resigned. Adjourned. OUR TRADE WITH CANADA. INVESTIGATING THE STRIKE. New York State Arbitration Commissioners in Session. Vice-President Webb, of the New York Central Placed on the Stand_ Testimony of Other Wlt-neHses—Labor Troubler of Question of Extending it by Reciprocity to be Considered l»y a Senate Committee. Washington, Sept. 2.—It is learned from a source very near to Senator Hoar that the special senate committee which has been examining into the trade relations between Canada and the United States intends to make another western trip, visiting Chicago, Detroit and Buffalo. Already this committee, of which Senator Hoar is the chairman, has furnished two huge volumes of testimony concerning trade relations, but the inquiry which will be the special feature of the next trip will be as to the desirability of reciprocity with Canada. A gentleman near to Senator Hoar said that Secretary Blaine’s plan of reciprocity to the southward had directed attention to similar relations northward. It was the observation of the committee when they went west the last time that there was a general feeling toward reciprocity throughout the northwest, A running sentiment of reciprocity is shown throughout the volumes already submitted by the committee, although they gave no particular attention to this branch of inquiry. Now, however, as the view of Mr. Blaine is likely to be adopted, the theory becomes applicable to Canadian reciprocity, and the committee will endeavor to learn all there is in favor of such commercial union with our northern neighbors. The Hoar committee had expected to have time after the coming adjournment to get to Chicago, but owing to the length of the session and the fall elections they may let it go over until spring. They are fully decided, however, on continuing their investigations in the west with reciprocity as the particular end in view. The Appropriation* of Congress. Washington, Sept. 2.—In connection with Hie conference report on the river and harbor bill to-day, Chairman Cannon, of the house committee on appropriations, nude an exhaustive statement touching the expenditures authorized during the present session of congress. He said the sum of $402,134,861 is properly chargeable against the probable revenues of tho government for the fiscal year I SO I, and when deducted from the latter, shows a surplus of $65,279,475. Following Cannon, Representative Sawyers presented a statement for his democratic colleagues on the committee. It says: If, to the appropriations of the present congress we add permanent and indefinite appropriations, estimated by the secretary of the treasury, to-wit, $101,-628,453, we will have aggregate appropriations for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1891, $401,844,779, as against $450,-414,337 revenues, including postal receipts, thus making an excess of appropriations over the revenues of 811,430,- 442.    _ The Debt Statement. Washington, Sept. 2.—The following is the monthly debt statement: Aggregate of interest bearing debt, exclusive of United States bonds issued to Pacific railroads..........978,020 Debt on which interest has ceased since maturity................-..... 1,777,275 Aggregate debt bearing no interest, including national bank fund deposited in treasury under act of July 14,1890 ......................... 408,i0T,854 Aggregate of certificates offset by cash in treasury.................... 478,850,340 Aggregate of debt, including certificates and notes, August 31, PBX)..................................1,0.0,113,491 Total cash In treasury................$694,557,449 Debt, less cash in treasury, August ..... 31, 1890.......................••••••;•    875,556,040 Debt, less cash in treasury. July 31, ................................... 876.389,113 New York, Sept. 2.—The state board arbitration began an investigation here to-day as to the difficulty between the New York Central railroad and the Knights of Labor. Vice President WTebb, the first witness, said the company had no controversy with its employes. On the evening of August 8th a large number of employes left, and their places have been filled. The alleged cause was that seventy-eight members out of twenty thousand had been discharged. They were discarged for good cause, but only 70 of those men had applied to the company for information as to why they were discharged. Subsequently a gentleman from another state called and wanted to know why the men were discharged. The witness declined to give reasons. This gentleman was Holland. The witness discharged men on reports from members of the secret service of the company. The charge was unsatisfactory service. An Engineer named Lee was discharged for unsatisfactory service. Tho man, Lee, was very arrogant and insolent. He said he would tie up every wheel between hero and Buffalo if he did not get some of the Vanderbilt money. Continuing, Webb said several of the men knew the cause for which they were djscharged. Their relations with the Knights of Labor had nothing to do with their discharge. Mr. Pryor endeavored to find out if the Knights of Labor question had been discussed by the board of directors, but the board declined to admit the question. “That shut us off,” remarked Pryor, turning around to the Knights of Labor executive committee. Webb said he had arranged fur the services of Pinkerton men some time before the strike. When asked about the details of arrangement Webb declined to answer. He did not seek the protection of the police authorities prior to employing Pinkerton men. Webb was followed by members of the Knights of Labor dismissed by the New York Central. Their testimony went over the ground of the alleged and supposed cause of their dismissal, and incidents connected therewith, already substantially covered in these dispatches. Messrs. Holland and Devilin, of the executive committee, teseified as to their efforts to bring about a settlement of the difficulty by arbitration. E. J. Lee introduced the correspondence between himself and Powderly. The latter advised him to move cautiously as he was in competition with a corporation that controlled millions of dollars where the labor party controlled cents. On August 2d Powderly wrote: “I regret to hear of this condition of affairs. If there is to be trouble it will be when Depew is away. I advise you to avoid a strike at all hazards as the order cannot support you now. Act on the following suggestion; Select from your men such as are good and reliable and secure places for them in the west. Then have them ask for shorter hours and higher wages. This the road will not grant. Then have them quit and take new places secured for them. Do this and wait until Depew returns. He is presidential candidate and would not care for a strike on his road.” General Master Workman Powderly was next called. Pending the strike he had no interview with any of the road’s officials. He related his interview with Webb and brought out nothing new. THE CARPENTERS’ STRIKE. has been holding meetings here for several months. The doctors think her peculiar mental and bodily state is due to hypnotism exerted by Mrs. Wood-worth and that its effect is most pernicious. The basis for the inquiry lies in the fact that Mrs. Woodworth has stated while in this state that she has conversed with the Deity and dccended into hades. GUARDING VOTES WITH GUNS. Returns From the Arkansan Elections Coming In Steady—Trouble Feared. Little Rock, Ark., Sept. 2.—The counting of the votes in the third ward is not yet completed and there are fears of trouble. The vote for Eastman township brought in last night was closely guarded by armed men. The Capital City guards disbanded this morning and the adjutant general took charge of their arms because it was rumored the arms might be used to make trouble. The returns are coming in slowly. A large vote was polled and several days must elapse before full returns can be obtained. Returns from two-thirds of the counties received to-night by the Gazette maintain the large increase in democratic majorities over last year already mentioned. The majority for Governor Eagle and the democratic state ticket will not fall below thirty thousand. There are no reports of disturbance at tho polls from anywhere in the state.

CLEVELAND WILL Bl THERE. at the A Gloomy Outlook for Ireland—The An-Klo-Portuffuese Agreement—Action of th* Trades Union Congress —General Foreign News. The State Convention at Concord Adopt* a Platform and Make* Nominations. Concord, Sept. 2.—The democratic state convention was called to order at 11:15 this morning by Chairman Stone, aud J. F. Bartlett, of Manchester, was made permanent chairman. He made an address. The platform, which was unanimously adopted: condemns the republican party for its actions upon the questions affecting the people; denounces the McKinley bill aud favors a tariff bill yielding a revenue adequate for the support of the government; denounces the force bill; tho house for its revolutionary measures to deprive the minority of its rights, the arbitrary and tyrannical condition of the speaker and the republican party for its extravagant expenditures. diaries II. Amsden was then nominated on the first ballot for governor. ALL ON BOARD DROWNED. London, Sept. 2.—Affairs in the east continue in an unsettled condition. It is believed at Rome that the report of a coolness between the czar and Emperor William is well founded. The impression given is that Russia and France are ready to adopt a menacing attitude toward the parties to the triple alliance— Germany, Austria and Italy. The refusal of King Humbert to personally greet the French squadron at Spezzia is believed to be a mark of Italy’s distrust of France on account of her supposed alliance with Russia. The two incidents taken together are considered as possible auguries of coming trouble. The French fleet will not now go to Spezzia aud not even a French gunboat will be present at the Italian naval review. The situation on the Armenian frontier is very grave. The Russian forces in that direction are being constantly strengthened, the garrisons of B&toum, Kars and other fortified towns having lately been increased, and the army of the Caucasus is in a full state of preparatiou for an advance. It seems certain that Russia will proceed at an early date to occupy Armenia. Russia does not anticipate a general war as the result of such occupation, believing that the triple alliance and Great Britain would not go to any serious lengths to save such a distant province for the porte. In the meantime the sultan’s government is showing a little more energy In seeking to remove the causes of disaffection. Six Penton* Meet Death by the Cap*izlng of a Yacht at San FrancI*co. San Franc isco, Sept. 2.—The sloop yacht Petrel, Captain William Ii. Hoy, was capsized just outside the harbor yesterday and six persons who were on board are all supposed to have been drowned. They were Captain and Mrs. Hoy, Miss Wallace, the daughter of a Presbyterian clergyman of this city, and the wife and two children of J. W. Collins, cashier of the California National bank, now in San Francisco. The bodies of two of the women were seen by some fishermen floating near the capsized yacht, but owing to the high seas they were unable to get near them. The bodies of the others are supposed to have been carried out to sea by the tide. FOUL AIR EXPLODES. Six Thounand Workmen Idle in Chicago-Some Return to Work. Chicago, Sept. 2.—The great strike of journeymen carpenters opened this morning. At neither the headquarters of the journeymen nor of the bosses was it known to what extent the order to quit work had bees obeyed. At the headquarters of the old and new bosses associations it is declared no men are idle. At the headquarters of the council it was admitted that perhaps some, perhaps a great many, had not gone to work. Each seems to be watching the other and to be carefully sizing up the situation before comment is made. It is estimated that about six thousand carpenters were idle this morning. Of these four thousand struck to-day, and two thousand were already out of work through the bosses closing up jobs in anticipation of the strike. Practically all the union men are out. The carpenters’ council this afternoon decided that all union men in the employ of the bosses paying 37% cents per hour and allowing eight hours a day, should at once return to work, and President O’Connell to-night said over two thousand wont to work under this decision. Fire Scattered Over Out Buildings and a Barn Burned. Eddyville, la., Sept. 2.—F. W. Scubner, who lives on the outskirts of this city, has been for some time making extensive improvements on his barn, and had it almost completed, when it occurred to him on last Saturday that a well which was in the basement of the barn would need cleaning. Fearing there might be foul air in the well, he took a bunch of hay, tied it to a rope, set fire to it and attemped to lower it to the bottom to drive out the damps if there should be any. The burning hay had only reached the depth of a few feet when an explosion occurred throwing the fire out of the well and scattering it in every direction all over the barn. The building was a total loss, but luckily at the time it contained no stock. Mr. Scubner’s loss is heavy as he had just finished rebuilding the barn and had it in good shape. HELD UP A TRAIN. A Gloomy Outlook For Ireland. London, Sept. 2.—The approach of a partial famine in Ireland makes the outlook for that country gloomy. John Dillon and William O’Brien are guests of Archbishop Croke at Cashel and are taking consul with him on the course they should pursue in their forthcoming American tour. The archbishop has lived a great deal out of Ireland and has broad views. He is known to favor a bold line of action toward secret societies. The two delegates express confidence in the success of their mission, but that feeling is not shared by all their colleagues, nor is the party by any means unanimous regarding the policy to be adopted regarding the Irish in America The Anglo-Portugue*e Agreement. London, Sept. 2.—The Portuguese continue to growl over the Anglo-Portu-guese agreement, with which few are satisfied. Major Serpa Pinto denounces the Engligh as pirates and thieves and asserts that they stirred up the Makololo to attack him under cover of the British flag; also that they sustained in power the late Makololo king, who was so cruel that he was in the habit of throwing in fants to the crocidiles, and the mothers also if they cried or complained of the fate of their offspring. Preparing for Mi Immense Time Texas State Fair. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.) Dallas, Texas, Sept. 2.—The state; Fair association have received positive assurance that ex-President Cleveland will visit the fair on a date to be fixed a few days hence. Steps are on foot to get Secretary Blaine here and no man would be more welcome. His American policy and his efforts for the commercial annexation of the Spanish republics to the United States have made him popular with both parties in Texas. The association is making very large expenditures in improvement on tin* fair grounds and its approaches. The agricultural and horticultural halls cover two acres and yet space is running short under Hie pressure from the county exhibits. A very large excursion of capitalists aud manufacturers from Boston has been arranged for and there will also be a like excursion from Philadelphia, headed by Drexel, who has made large investments here. Henry George, taking advantage of the fomentation in the agricultural party of Texas, will lecture all over the state this fall, commencing in this city in the early part of November.

When the case was called yesterday Major M. P. Smith, county attorney, had the case dismissed. The Hon. Henry Birkie, attorney for the defense, has prepared a brief argument, holding the aet unconstitutional, hat said that event if constitutional, legislation was necessary to put the prohibitory law in force ast the supreme court decision in the original package case had absolutely voided the prohibitory statute. THE STAT! PAIR. -The Dairy A Valuable Find on the Farm of .Jonathan Perry, near .Jonesboro. III. Cairo, III., Sept. 2.—A mountain of chalk lias been discovered about two miles south of Jonesboro. The character of the hill was discovered accidently by the owner, Jonathan Perry, of Mount Vernon. III. Ile has begun working it in a small way, shipping about two carloads per day and realizing a handsome profit on it. A sample of the article has been pronounced the finest quality of genuine chalk. It is said to be the only deposit of the kind in this country. The hill is 150 feet high and covers about ten acres of ground. THE LA HARPE FAIR With La Harpe to-day Open* Under Favorable Auspice*. Bright Prospect*. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.} Harpe, III., Sept. 2.—The La District Fair association opened under very favorable auspices with a full display of everything necessary to make a good fair. There is a grand display of all kinds of draft, roadster and all purpose horses, aud in fact, a goodly number of all kinds of stock and fowls. Floral hall is a thing of beauty and should be seen to be appreciated. Base ball and trotting, pacing and ruining races have been the attraction of the day. A slight shower during the morning laid the dust and made the day a pleasant one. Stock men say this is the hest fair they attend outside of state fairs. THE TURF. MURDER OR SUICIDE. Arthur I. Flint, of Ryan, In.. Found With a Ballet Through Hi* Heart. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.] Manchester. Iowa. Sept. 2. This morning Arthur I. Flint, a merchant of Ryan, ten in ii* ^ south of this place, w as found with a bullet hole through th** heart and a revolver near him. It is reported that he left a letter addressed to his uncle and partner. J. A. Thomas.astating that he was “tired of life.” The coroner has gone to investigate the case. The deceased wa- a young unmarried man. He has been engaged in the mercantile business for several years and was highly respected in the community. It is difficult to account for his desire to so suddenly end his existence. The investigation may prove that the weapon was used hy other hands than his own. A DEFAULTING TREASURER PARDONED Governor Bole* Exercise* Clemency* Toward H. J. Cowan, at Anamosa. [Special to The Hawk-Eye.} Anamosa, Sept. 2.—H. J. Cowan. «*\-treasurer of Hardin county, sentenced to the penitentiary for four years for being a defaulter to the amount of 8sc,,000, was released from prison to-day, having been pardoned by Governor Boies. The governor was Cowan's attorney, but in pardoning him he did a just act as Cowan is a first-class man and has served most of his sentence as assistant bookkeeper and has the implicit confidence of the prison officials. There i* now one republican and one democratic county treasurer in the penitentiary here but the democrat got away with more boodle than both republirans put together. Daring Express Robbery on the Louisville and Nashville Road. Moiule, Ala., Sept. 2.—The Louisville and Nashville cannon ball train which left Mobile at eight o'clock last night was held up at Big Escambia bridge, half a mile north of Pensacola Junction, by robbers who entered the express car and compelled the messenger to give up the contents of the safe. It is not known just what the loss is, but it is thought it is not heavy, as this train did not t arry a heavy amount. After securing the val uables the robbers jumped off and escaped to the woods. One posse has left Flomaton and another left Mobile in pursuit of the robbers. Money Classes Alarmed. London, Sept. 2.—The trades union congress in Liverpool is watched with a keener interest this year than at any previous time since organized labor began to hold conventions. They have always been conducted with great moderation and good sense, and extreme views have never found favor with the majority. Yet this year the moneyed classes express fear of the result. The alarmist tone of the Times editorial is an echo of the prevailing sentiment among employers of labor. The announcement that £10.000 had already been collected to sustain the Australian unions in their struggle with organized capital has fallen like a thunderclap among middle-class Englishmen, and the bold and aggressive speech of John Burns, which was received with vigorous applause by the whole 500 delegates, is taken as an indication of a long struggle. Every one of the representatives of labor in parliament is present at the congress, and several newly organized unions of unskilled workmen are represented. The Sheepshead Bay Race*.

Philadelphia, Sept. 2,—The venerable and picturesque “Dick” Vaux, who was a notable figure in national life and politics when men who are now middle-aged were knickerbockers, is not to succeed himself in congress as the representative of Samuel J. Randall’s district. The democratic leaders of the third district have been doing a great deal of skirmishing for the last two weeks and the resvlt is that William McAleer is announced as the next democratic candidate for congress in that district.
