Washington, Sept. 3.—In the senate a written communication from the Oswego board of trade contradicting the statement of the secretary of agriculture on the subject of production of barley was presented by Evarts who asked that it be printed in the Congressional Record. An objection to that was made but five hundred copies were ordered printed for immediate distribution. Mr. Call offered a resolution which was referred to the committee on foreign relations, declaring that the murder of General Barrundia by the authorities of Guatemala, while under protection of the flag of the United States, was an insult to the people of the United States and demanded prompt action by the government for redress of that injury and for security against the recurrence of such cases. The tariff bill was taken up. The sugar bill being under consideration. Mr. Edmunds addressed the senate on the subject. Coming to the question of reciprocity, Edmunds recalled the history and practical operations. (Injurious to the United States) of the Canadian reciprocity treaty of 1854. He opposed placing sugar on the free list, and as to reciprocity with Central and South America said the demand of the country for those commodities did not depend as much upon the numbers as upon the state of its society, its wealth and its civilization. When he looked at any Central or South American state he thought, speaking with reserve and conservatism, that any one hundred average people in North America had, during the last year, consumed more of the products in merchandise, food and clothing, that go to make up the comfort and luxury and happiness of mankind than any one thousand average people in the Central or South American states. Therefore the expectation of the United States being able to dispose of a large increase of its products there was, in his opinion, one of the greatest illusions that brilliant men or sober statesmen had lately fallen into. He did not mean by that, however, that he was not willing and glad to try it on the plan of receiving any of the products of those countries which the United States did not produce, and giving to them products which they did not produce. Mr. Morgan addressed the senate in support of the amendment heretofore proposed by him as a substitute for Aldrich’s reciprocity amendment. It provides for a duty of three per cent, ad-valorem on corn, wheat, rye, barley, oats, hay, straw, potatoes, cotton, live domestic animals and on asses, mules and horses and that when any such articles are exported a premium of three per cent shall be paid on their value to the owner. Mr. Voorhees addressed the senate. Most of his speech was devoted to a vivid and picturesque denunciation of the McKinley bill as the anti-christ of all proceeding legislation. Mr. Evarts spoke of the varieus reciprocity amendments and criticised them as being objectionable under the “favored nation" clause of the international treaties. He concluded by saying: “Make your tariff as you think right, let others make theirs as they think right. And wrhen you reach, .as England has reached, the position that you can devour the substance of other nations better by free trade than you can preserve your own substance by protection, then change your laws." After remarks by Gray and Hale the senate took a recess till evening. There was but a small attendance at the evening session, which was occupied by Pierce in a speech advocating reciprocity. Chicago, Sept. 3.—There are less than 700 striking [carpenters who refused to go to work Tuesday morning still out. There is confusion and chaos among tho members of the carpenters’ council over the action of the strike committee in authorizing the return to work of carpenters who were receiving 37K cents per hour. This action is criticized by the strikers who say the committee exceeded its authority. President James O’Connell, of the carpenters’ council, has resigned because of the discontent of the members of that organization. Employers assert they have all the men they want. The trouble in the union arose from the discontent of the radicals with the action of the council in allowing men to go to work for such bosses aa accepted the union’s conditions. The radicals insisted on an all around strike, while the conservatives, who were in the majority, argued their plan was the best and that it could be followed by a general strike next spring, if necessary, to bring the remaining bosses into line. THS CENTRAL STRIKE. about one thousand three hundred persons, all of whom are descendants of William Gaston, who was born in North Carolina in 1755 and entered the continental army tinder George Washington when he was only seventeen years of age. After the revolution he settled In his native state and raised a family of nine children, most of whom emigrated to the west as soon as they attained their majority. The father followed them in the year 1839 and settled near the home of his son, Samuel Gaston, who came to Illinois in 1819. The record of the reunion society shows the descendants of William Gaston to be nine children, fifty-five grandchildren, three hundred great-grandchildren, seven hundred great-great-grandchiidren, and one hundred and seveuty great-great-great-grand-children.

Boston, Sept. 3.—Speaker Reed addressed a large audience to-night at Fan-uel Hall. In the course of his speech he said, in part: It is amazing to notice the history of the house of representatives and congress and to see how in detail is carried out this principle, that when things are to be done, the republican party does them. The great struggle which has been made by the democratic house of representatives for years, has been not to be eeo-nimical in the expenditures of the government, but to cut down the sum total of appropriations. They have been striving in every way to put up the surplus, not merely by taxation but by parsimony in their action in the expenditure of money. So long as they could point *to the clogging of business which results from the storing of money in the treasury, they seemed happy, but now they are busily engaged in showing that the surplus has disappeared. They are unable to be contented either with a surplus or without one.t There is no doubt but what the expenditures of the government London, Sept., 3.-—The courtesies extended to the British fleet at Toulon, yesterday, are very gratifying to the Englishmen, but they have no political significance. The coolness between Italy and France growing out of the Spezzia incident tended to make the reception given to the British officers by the Frenchmen all the warmer. It has leaked out that the ref usal of King Humbert to go to Spezza to meet President Carnot on the occasion of the launching of a new Italian iron-clad was due to the direct interference of Premier Crisp! and the ministry, who considered that the meeting would offend Germany. The Trench resent the affront and it has tended to still further widen the breach between the two countries. French papers recall the services of Franco in bringing about the unification of Italy and taunt the Italians with the fact that it was a French army that drove tho Austrians out of Lombardy. But Italy has thrown in her lot with the the triple alliance and will stand or fall #ith it. If she should fall it will be a bad day for Crisp!, as there is a largo party in Italy which strongly condemn his course.

Master Mechanic Buchanan testified that he discharged Lee * by the orders of Vice President Webb; had no personal knowledge of the causes why the seventy-eight men were discharged; he knew the causes in the case of two only—Malloy and Conway; Malloy was discharged for obtaining a pass under false pretenses and Conway for neglect of duty. Trainmaster Stevens testified that he never told any employe of the company that he must either leave the Knights of Labor or leave the road. John Seery, employed under Stevens, testified that Stevens asked him if it was true that he had joined the Knights of Labor. Seery told him it was. Stevens said he had better get out of the order or it might cost him his bread and butter. Stephens, recalled, said he did not ask Seery if he belonged to the Knights of Labor, and told him that he ought not to join with them without acquainting him, on account of his personal relations to Seery, he having got him a better position. He did not tell him his bread and butter depended on his leaving the Knights, but when Seery asked him what he ought to do he told him he must act from his own judgment. If Seery was his brother, however, he would advise him to leave them, as in case of a strike he would find himself compelled to go out with them. Adjourned to meet in Albany, Friday. man    would make a mistake if he believed it was In any way the result of extravagance or careless ness with the public money. There has been advertisement broadcast of this surplus, and every human need and want has been set together to try to get the money out of the treasury for other than public purposes, but not one of these schemes have been successful. All of the expenditures have been legitimate, just and proper. We shall expend nearly our income. We shall also reduce taxation to the extent of $50,000,000 in addition thereto. One of the great element of expenditure is the pension legislation, which is not understood by New England and the character of it is not fully appreciated. W'ith us the soldier is comparatively content with what he has received and with what is promised him in the near fnture. But in the west there exists a different feeling. These stones about a vast surplus have set men wild with the idea of a service pension which would bring a monument to every man in the service. We have had to meet not merely the contention of those who are parsimonious and not willing to do what was fair to the soldiers, but those who wished to do such things as with the present revenues of the government are impossible without bankruptcy and ruin. The labor Quest loo. London, Sept. 3.—The labor question is still kept well to the front. While the trads unionists are discussing in convention measures of paramount interest to them a large number of capitalists are organizing for resistance to the demands of their employes. The ship owners, representing a capital of nearly $500,-000,000, effected a permanent organization yesterday, and their avowed objects are resistance to the trades anions and protection of the rights and privileges of the capitalists. The chief incentive to their action has been supplied by the strike of the officers and seamen of the Australian vessels. The prompt aid furnished by the English unions to their Australian brethren has alarmed the ship owners all over the empire and an effort will be made to get all of them into the new organization. The bulk of the London owners decline to join it, believing that they are not able to light the Dockers* I union, but the tendency everywhere else is toward affiliation. The Australian vessel owners have also effected an organization and announced their deter-I mination to fight the labor unions to the bitter end. Both capitalists and unionists regard the Australian struggle as a test that will decide the relations between labor and capital for many years to come in the British empire and exercise a strong influence all over the civilized world.

New York, Sept. 3.—At the single tax convention to-day Henry George read the platform. The main point is that all men were created alike with certain inalienable rights. It declared that no one should be permitted to hold property without a fair return. There should be no tax on the products of labor, and all revenue for national, state and municipal purposes should be raised by a single tax upon land values, irrespective of improvements. The last clause of tho platform excited a long discussion. It proposes that tho telegraph, railroad, water and gas supplies of the country should be under control and manipulated by local, state or national governments as the expediency might demand. The platform was adopted by as read by Mr. George. Hiawatha, Kansas, Being Reduced to Ashes by Fierce Flames. Hiawatha, Kansas, Sept. 3.—Fire broke out at one this morning in William Horne’s livery stable and in less than three hours it had destroyed two and a half blocks in the business centre of the city, causing a loss of at least $150,000. The greatest loss was to the Frst National bank bnilding, owned by Senator Morrill. A vault containing $50,000 in currency and many valuable books and papers, gave way under the intense heat and its contents was entirely destroyed. There is only fire engine in the city and if the furious wind which has been blowing keeps up there is danger that the whole business portion of the city will be destroyed. The destruction would then include the First National bank building, Odd Fellows’ building and numerous stores and stables. To Identify Catholicism. London, Sept. 3.—The movement of an International character to identify Catholicism with the improvement of the condition of the masses, is making rapid progress and attracts increased attention. A number of the young Catholic leaders in France, Switzerland, Germany and Austria have just visited Rome and secured the adhesion of a large party at the vatican. The younger members of the clergy are practically unanimous In their approval of tho movement, which seeks to remedy the ills of the social system by inculcating the Christian doctrine of mutual love and focbearance, and would involve in practice the voluntary relinquishment by the employing classes, in many instances, of advantages now considered legitimate sources of profit. Persons outside the Catholic church regard the scheme as visionary. The pope Is spending several hours each day in the study of socialist books and leaflets, with a view to embodying his conclusions in a forthcoming encyclical. PHELPS NOT DISCOURAGED. A National Reform Party. St. Louis, Sept. 3.—A small convention, composed of about thirty delegates, chiefly from this city, and representing the elements in the union labor, prohibition and greenback parties, convened here to-day.

Boston, Sept. 3.—At the second day’s session of the United Typothacta to-day the committee on the apprenticeship system presented an extended report in which a revival of the system in some form was strongly urged on the ground that such revival would tend to make better workmen; do away labor troubles and bring in a much better class of men. Secretary Wallace, of Philadelphia, presented a protest against the re-establishment of the apprenticeship system, he expressing a belief that the system was a back number and a substitute for it would be found in mechanical trade schools. A resolution memorializing congress to pass an amendment to the present copyright law defining more specifically and making it obligatory for parties who apply to establish the same, the rights of property in their claim, was adopted. They Ask President Harrison to Extend the Date for Leaving the Cherokee Strip to December 1st. Kansas City, Sept. 3.—President Edward Hewins, of the Cherokee Strip Live Stock association, is in the city. To a reporter to-day he said that strenuous efforts are being made to influence the president to extend the time for the evacuation of the Cherokee strip by the cattlemen two months, or until December 1st. If the presidents order goes into effect by October 1st it will necessitate during the next twenty-seven days the rushing of fully a quarter of a million head of cattle on to the market, which will simply paralyze the cattle business for a considerable length of time. Every representative in congress from Kansas, besides the senators, have signed a memorial asking for an exudation of time which has been presented to President Harrison. The secretary of agriculture has also interceded in their behalf. Candidate McFarland Leases His I’aper. Estherville, la., Sept. 3.—Hon. N. M. McFarland, republican candidate for secretary of state, has leased his pa per, the Northern Vindicator, to Burr Williams, formerly local editor, until December, and in the event of the election of the former the lease will probably be extended. Mr. McFarland left yesterday for Des Moines to attend a meeting of the state committee. Pnblte Opinion in Germany Demands Free American Meat. Berlin, Sept. 3.—Mr. Phelps, the United StaUas Minister, was interviewed to-day regarding Senator Edmunds’ meat inspection bill. He said: “Public opinion in Germany is doing the work for us as rapidly as we could expect. Different German interests are bombarding Chancellor Von Caprivi so hotly that we can afford to wait a little. Our latest news is the startling appeal the municipal authoritfes of Berlin have just addressed to the chancellor. From April, 1889, to April, 1890, the city of Berlin made a gain    in population of sixty thousand    according to the    normal rate of    consumption this    increase in population should cause an increase of twenty thousaud head of importation of swine, but instead of that, the imports have decreased by twenty-five thousand, a loss to Berlin consumption of twenty-five thousand a year. Matters have not improved since. The chancellor has withdrawn his edict excluding Austrian pigs, and now only Russia and America suffer from this    unjust restriction.    I expect the prohibition against Russian swine will soon be removed and then our turn will come. In the meantime, I am not a bit discouraged." MANY PEOPLE DROWNED. SHOULD GIVE THE LAW A CHANCE. That la What the President of the American Bankera Association Suggests. Saratoga, N. Y., Sept. 3.—The annual convention of the American Bankers’ association began at noon. A large number of representative financial men of the United States are present.

[Special to the Hawk-Kjre.J Dies Moines, Sept. 3.—Notwithstanding the threatening weather to-day the crowd at the state fair is larger than ever before. The grounds are fairly packed—there is no room anywhere, fully 5,000 strangers being present—and everyone is good-natured and happy. In the exposition hall there is one mass of people and the same can be said of the other departments. Of all a farmer’s possessions, he takes as much or more pride in his horses as in the balance of his live stock—and the horse barns are surrounded by an eager populace anxious to see, going away enraptured. The farmer knowns he can tell his own animals worth only by comparfson. He knows that he can find animals by a close study of whose good points he will gain an in- ; sight into better success in breeding and i gain more ability to improve his own j string of horses. There is no more pleasing sight to anybody than a thor-1 oughbred horse. Here one -tees tho j foundation of wealth untold. Besides Iowa has an ad van tune in the breeding of horses which makes all other states envious. We have a county filled with the very be.-t blooded stock on earth. The success of those who have invested their money in animals of good worth has been wonderful. Notwithstanding the society has constructed a new barn for the increased number of exhibitors which they expected, there is not enough room to accommodate those who are j here. .Sheds have been filled and tine j blooded permium winners, although re- j eeiving care as watchful a-* that of a j mother over her babe, have tn-en rom- 1 pelled to accept secondclass quarter* Mr. Evans yesterday in speaking of j the .different exhibits said that there ; were some strings of horses present, the : like of which had never been equalled, j Yesterday in the 2-year-old Shire cia** there were eighteen head, ail noble looking specimens of their breed. In the French draft class, 5-year-olds. *ixtcen magnificent stallions competed for awards. In the 3-year-old, thirteen were brought for honors. I n the 2-year-old French draft class, sixteen of as fine specimens as ever stood together were exhibited. Eight beautiful aged Shires were shown and fiftev ?-year-olds. This, said Mr. Evans, had n6svr been equalled in any horse show, andX was hilarious over his successful efforts^ bring them together. Among some of the larger and iiner exhibits can be found the excellent showing of Oltmann Bros., importers of German. Hanoverian and Oldenburg coach stallions and mares, of Wateska, Illinois; Clydesdale horses by A. P. Clark, St. Cloud, Minnesota; one especially fine one was a magnificent three-year-old mare.

Longmaster & Bro., of Keota. have their well-known stud represented. They have have a large exhibit of over 39 head. They occupy one entire barn. W. M. Field A Bro., importers and breeders, of Cedar Falls, have forty-three head of English shires and Cleveland bays. They have won more premiums than any other one exhibitor. Thus one might go on and name twenty more, all worthy of special mention. In the poultry house eau be found chickens of all sizes and kinds, besides turkeys, geese, ducks, squirrels, rabbits. Guinea pigs, etc., and the little ones fairly go crazy over this exhibit- Lovers of fine poultry stood for hours gazing at the many fancy breeds represented. The tennis games resulted in Hume and Dawson winning the fair trophy. Hume won the singles. The fireworks this evening were very tine and were witnessed by at least 5,000 people.
