Weekly Cincinnati Times (Newspaper) - May 24, 1888, Cincinnati, Ohio THE CINCIlíNAn WEEKLY TIMES, THURSDAY,. MAY 24, 1888. SAD UNITED lABORITES. THEY EXGAÍJE IN THE BUSINESS OF DEXOUXCIXO EVEIIYBODY. ihr Union liabor 3Ien Thoy Abhor, While They Call I he Democratic AdininlNlratinii the “Koncnest on Record"—The Two Conveiitioiis. CixciNNATi, May 17. Tlie United labor people feel «>re toward the Unionists because of the latter’» summary rejection of llie land tax policy. A United delcgnte from IJrooklyn, X. Y., said this morning: ‘‘Ninety per cent of the Union delegates from the West didn’t know at any time what was going on in the Convention, ami hadn't sense enough to find out I never before at one time saw BO many men claiming to know so very, very much and who really knew so very, very little, as were congregated at their t/'onventlon. We, from the Kast, thought certainly to find some lilterality and bioad-ness among the western Unionists, but we were lamentably disai>pointeil. Tliey liogged everything—they would not even allow us a cob in the tunning of tlie platform.’’ There Is also conshlernble dissatisfaction V.    among    tl»e Union delegates over the failure of their leaders to conciliate the TTnited folks. I, F. McDonald, of Springlleld, 0.. A.ssisinnt Secretary of the Union Convention, said to-divy that he would in the coming campaign advocate strictly the single-tax idea of the United party. He thought there would be a great flocking over into United ranks by Unionists. At 10:30 Chairniun Will. Ogden rapped to order in tlie Unite<l I.abor Convention at tlie Grand Opera House. The delegates nresent scarcely tilled a third of the chairs 3f the parquelte. Dr. McGlynn entered irectlv ana w'as greeted with a round of applause. The Secretary announced that, as they onljtohad one copy of their platform they were constantly nienacea with the great and grave danger of losing their precious document The meeting at once appreciated the importance of the preservation of the article they had formulated with so much eflbrt, and. on motion, a committee was ap-jiointed to solicit cash subscriptions to meet the expense of the publication of 1,000 copies. A delegate arose and moved that, as there were a number of Union delegates f*re!«ent. the platform be read for their en-ightenracnt. The motion prevailed and the reading was finally gone through with after the m<»t approved manner, with Dr. Mo Glynn as reader. Mr. E. A. Henrie, of Kansas, Secretary of the convention, spoke in favor of a reconsideration of the order of business agreed u{>on, and against the putting in tlie field of a National ticket. The declaration of principle was all tliat was ncces-parv with tlwm, and they had nobly ac- aultled themselves in that direction in leir single tax platform. He denounced the Union party as in nowise what it professed to be—a reform or^nization. Mr. Cummings, of New York, stmke against a reconsideration of the order of business. He wanted to vote for a United Labor President and Vice ibvsident this fnll. He certainly could not vote for either Pemocratic or Kepublican nominee, and while he could vote for the Union candi dates bt could not sanction that platform. Re turned arc and to soma of Ine Union delegates present and scoffed at their platform. The speaker charged that there had been trickery in their convention. He said that a hireling had been sent to Cincinnati to divide the Labor parties in favor of the old parties. The speaker was finally called to order. Jobn J. Bealin, of New York, said it had been the fondest hope of the United people that the two laibor wings should become united. Those hojies had been cruelly dashed, principally because of the lack of principle among‘New York Union delegates. He now wanted a chapee to vote for a United ticket. He could not vote for "that infamous man,’’ James G. Blaine, the probable Itepublican candidate, and as-Buredly would not support tlie present Chief Magistrate, whose Administration he designated as the "rottenest on record.’’ Tlie motion to reconsider the order of business was finally lost. Nominations fur President and Vice President of the United Htates were now declared in order, but a motion that i recess of twenty minutes be bod carried. Iminedlacely after recess the work of nominating Presidential candidates was comroenre<l. Henry A. Robinson, of Micb-ij^n; Robert H. Cowdery, of Chicago, and victor A. Wilder, of New York, were named. Dr. McGlynn warmly seconded the Qomiuatlon of Mr. Cowdery. He said the United party was not inclined to sectionajjlsm. It had been cliarged that this was an Eastern movement Therefore he was in favor of going Bume distance from that section in the selection of their candidate. He also was well acquainted with Mr. Cowdery and considered him the man predestined to be their standard bearer. He was not only an ardent believer in the fundamenta‘1 principles of the party, but an able exponent of them. The name of Mr. Robinson, of Michigan, was «withdrawn in favor of Mr. Cowdery, The balloting was then gone into and re-puUod as follows; For Cowderv—Maryland, 2; Ohio, 9; Kentucky, 2: Michigan, 6; New Jersey. 1; Rhuile Island, 1: New York. 80. For Wilder—New York. 12. The Humination was maae unaniiuons, and Dr. McGlynn at once escorted Mr, Cowdery, who was near at hand, to the •tage. The so newly fledged candidate for President was enthusiastically applauded by the little uasemhlage. He is young, •iiort and slight of figure, with a coiunion-f tilttcc countenance adorned with a lieavy brown mustache, and rather daniier of drcM. He held a lighted cigar in ins fingers as he addressed his {ollowera for a few inomente. He Slated tiiat he was in a state of considerable trepidation over the responsibility Just tiiriist upon him. He thought upon the future of this luirty very much was dejiending—even Uie future of ids rhihl and the cliiUlren of those whom he addrcHM'd. A remedy for almost all the ills the people were now sullering from was represent-(hJ in tlie single tax idea. He did not, of course, ex|»ect to be elected Chief Magistrate of tliu cunutry, but he did ho|>e to add some little iiu|»etu» to the movement having fur one of its prime objects the doing away with ihi» thing of everlastingly latylng tribute to those who do not produce, Mr. Cowdery is aged thirtv-aiz, was born In Indiana, but has resided In Cldcago (or seventeen years. He U a druggist and has never held utllee. Ho was formerly a Re-ptihliran. There was only one name oflered for the Vlc.e Presidential nominution, that of W. H. Wakefield, of Council tJrove, Km., so he was chosen unaniniously, of course. The iioiimieM for Vice President is aged about sixty, was born In Kentucky, but ims lived in Kunsiis since '.'sV He is tlie editor of the Anti-.Monopolist, jnihüshwl at Council Grove. He says he is an Anicrican In every sense, us his onee.stors cuine over in the Mayflower, Ids two great graiidfuthers foualit in the revolution, and lie himaelf was thrice wounded in the rebellion.

All the overtures of the United Labor party toward a uniting with the Union |iartyon a basis of Henry George’s singletax idea came to naught yesterday. The Union Labor parly eniphatically would hnvfl none of the siiigle-tax doctrine in their platform. Accordingly the TTmtod party w’as left to paddle its own canoe. This it proceeded to do ill a weak way at the Grand Opera House last night by adopting a national platform. This platform announced in substance that the delegates held that the corruption of the Guvernmont and the impoverishment ol the masses result from neglect of great truths proclaimed even so long ago as by the founders of the Republic, and other matters de|>endiiig upon the sanctity of a Bufi'rage public. The right of sufinge was stated as an inherent one with all Amer ican citizens, regardless of sex or color. The Union Iiabor Men. After almost endless wrangling over whether the jireanible should li>e wliolly a Greenback argument or an able esway on the curse of monopolie.s. the Union l.alior National Convention late last evening agreed on a monopoly kite and a tail to tlie same in the way of a platform of nine planks. Tlie platform is to the following effect: The land plank also denounces monopolies, demands the forfeiture of unearned land grants, the limitation of laud ownership and other legislation toward preventing land speculntiun. Transjiortation—Governmental ownership of telegraphs and railroads. Money—Tlieannihilationof National bank; free coinage of silver; the application of all the money in the Treasury to the payment of the bomlod debt, and no further issuing of National, btate or Municipal interest bearing bonds. IJilior-Arbitration instead of strikes; no more contracts in public works; a reduction of the hoursconstitut-iiigaday’s labor; equal jiayfor equal work for both sexes; against tne employment of children in workshops, mines and factories. Pensions—A service pension for all honorably discharged soldiers and sailors. A graduated income tux. United States Senators to be iplectcd by direct vote of tlie people. Legal prohibition of the importation of subjects of foreign powers under contract. The Chinese to be excluded from the United States. Woman suffrage to be optional with States.

This important annual event in Grand Army circles occurs at Columbus in the second week of September next The present indications are that it will be the largest encampment ever held, it being estimated that at least 200,0(X) veterans will be in attendance. Preparations for the event are being rapidly pushed. The extent of the preparations is indicated by one of the camps, which is arranged to accommodate 30,000 men. It will have two dining halls, each over 600 feet long, in which 4.600 men can be fed at one time. It will be sewered, snpplied with Uolly water, and lighted by electricity. The Ohio State Journal lisa been selected by the Executive Committee of Arrauae-meats to publish the daily roster of the Encampment. A Committee on Registration will arrange to secure the most complete registration that hu ever been made, and the State Journal has contracted to print the names as they are famished. This will make a very important feature of the National Encampment, as nothing like a perfect roe ter has ever been published. Fell aThouaand Feet. WiLKUBARRi, Pa., May 17.—Thomas Rowan, aged forty-eight, for many yeara employed u head manat the South Wilket-barre abaft of the Lehigh and Wilkesbarrt Coal Company, met bit death at a late hour last night in a way moet frightful. He had been leaning against a gate placed around the shaft to guard the opening, and not being locked it gave way and he fell headlong down through the shaft, a distance of over 1,(X)U feet, into a sump of water some fifty feet deep, in the fail both arms, by striking against tiie timbers, were severed from his body. Up to 11 o’clock this morning his remains atill lay in tlie sump, and it may be sevsral days before tliey can be found. Convicta Know Where to Draw the lilne.

IN PIONEER DAYS. A GLIMPSE OP CINCINNATI A CENTURY AGO. Life Then Meant Hard Work, Priv- Atinii and Constant Danger—An Old Iiady’s Recollections of Her Cliildhood. The following letter, full of interest at this time and never before in print, was written for the children of Mrs. Reeder some years before her death, which occurred Odlober 6, 1872, in her eighty-fourth year, at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs. James Secrist.ot Pleasant Ridge. Mrs. Harriet Furgeson, of Dayton, 0., is tlie only child of Mrs. Reeder now living: Having read many misstatements in regard to the first settlement of Cincinnati, I have concluded to give you a correct account of matters of which I have a personal knowledge. My father, mother and seven children came down the Ohio River from Pennsylvania, and landed at Cincinnati, then called I.K)santivilIe, on the 8th day of January, 1789. Tlie first persons we saw after landing were Mr. McMillen and Mr. Israel Ludlow, one of the proprietors of the place. These two gentlemen were the surveyors of the Miami Purchase. Israel Ludlow came down to our boats, and invited our family up to stav in their cabin until we could get onr cabin built Mother went to see the cabin, but as there did not seem to be room enough on the ground floor to spread our beds, siie thought we could be more comfortable by remain-ing on our boats until the ice began to run. Then we were obliged to go ashore and contrive some other way to live. What few men there were got together, knocked our boats to pieces and built us a camp, where we lived for six weeks; then my father built us a large cabin, which was the first cabin large enough for a family to live in. My father intended to have built his house on the corner of Walnut and Water streets, but not knowing exactly where the streets were he built his bouse right in the middle of Water street The streets were laid out, but the woods were so very thick, and the streets were not opened, so it was not known exactly where the streets would be. They took the boards of our camp, and made floors in our house. There were three little cabins without any floors, where the surveyors awl chain carriers lived. There were three other females besides luy mother, their names were Mrs. Dcmint, Mrs. Connv Zenes, afterward married to Mr. McMilien and Mrs. Presthal, a German woman, and my mother, Mrs, Rebecca Kennedy, which made four females at that time, 'fhere were but two families that had small children. They were the German family and ray father’s. My father landed with three boats, one loaded with flour, one with other provisions and one for the family. At that time the soldiers were stationed at North Bend. They were in a starving condition, from the want of bread. They heard that mv father had landed with a boat load of flour and meal. Some soldiers were sent up to my father to get several barréis of flour. My father told them he had not brought flour here to sell, but to save his children's lives here in this dismal forest Tbey had their guns with them, and said they were sent to take it by force if he would not give it ap. My father then took down his gun and told them be would stand in defense of the flour. They tlien went back to North Bend and Judge Symmee, who resided near the fort, wrote my father a letter and told him to roll out as many barrels of flour as the soldiers wanted and be would see that it waa replaced. Then my father gave them as much us tbey required, and it was replaced in due time. My father waa for eeveral years an independent farmer on Broadway street; the land in that region was then much better adapted to raising corn, potatoes and flax tban it is now. My father eeUblished the first ferry at this point at a very early period. He ferried all the militia aud cattle for the army over the river. Thomas Kennedy kept the ferry on tlie other side, and my father, Francis Kennedy, kept the ferry on this side; between the two, they did all the business during the three campaigns of Oen. Ilarmar, Gen. St Clair and Gen. Anthony Wayne. I can remember distinctly the encampment of Anthony Wayne in our city (as it now it), and how uie soldiers were harnessed into teams and hauled lugs for the barracks. My father was drowned, near the close of the war, while ferrying cattle over the river for the army. It was published in the papers that Mr. Joel Williams had the first ferry, but be did not He was here before my father, but he did not have the ferry until after my father’s death. Shortly after bit death Joel Williams made application to court for license to ran the ferry boat The court would not grant bim license until it knew whether my mother would wish to keep the ferry. The Judge sent her a note to know if abe wished to continue tlie businese, but she, thinking it would be too much trouble to attend to it, the court granted him a license. The papers also stated that Mr, Bprigman bad the first store, but that ia a mistake. The names of the first persons that kept store were Smith A Findlay, afterward Oen. Findlay. Mr. Conner kept another and (Job Gibson’s store was on the corner of Main and Water itreeu. Maj. Ziegler kept another. He was a German officer out of the army. These stores were all kept several years before Mr. Sprigoian kept store. Joel Williams and Isaac Feltie kept the first good taverns in the place; they kept on Water street. 1 heard it announced that Mr. Smith, if I do not mistake the name, was the first Slierift and hung the first man. But he was not. Mr. John Ludluw was the first Sheriff and hung the firat man, named Maae, that was hung In Cincinnati. Tue blood ot Mr. VanCIief was the first that waa mingled with the aoll. I can remember seeing the men carrying him in on slitter of brush. The second man that was killed was Mr. lUiiotU 1 can remember well when no one dared to go to meeting, where the Firat Presbyterian Church now lUnds, without tbeir guns. Tbey were liable*to a fine if they did not take them with them because they were in so much danger from tbi Indians. The men always sat with tlicir guiik standing between their knees, all througli the meeting to be ready for any outbreak of the Indians. Our church aeau were loga hewn off as smooth as they could make them. No fine cusliiuned seats in tUoaa days. I am going to inentiun a few persons that were here in very early days. I have never heard their naiuea mentioned: Dr. Etllsun, one of the Hnt physicians; Dr. Merrell and family. Dr. Huel and family, Mr. Blackburn and family, Mr. Garrison and family, Mr. Mo* Henry and family, Jacob Reeder and family, Stephen Rewler and family, Daniel Kitchell and family, Mrs. PIiodm Flint, daughter of Daniel Kitoiiell; tSainuel Dick and faiiilly, Isaac Amieraon and family, Mrs. McKnigbt and sona, Theae were all very early settler», and 1 felt it my duty to name them. The first summer after we came here, which waa I7H0, tlie people suffered a great deal from the want of bread; as for meat, they had none at all, only as they killeil game in the woods. Thut was all they had to eat. Every Sunday niurnimi my m'uther gave the German woman a baaili full of meal, to make bread for her children. Then they lived on game the rest of the week. When 1 was eight yeara old. I went to North Bond to suy with my sister, Mrs. George Hollautl, 1 had the ague, so they made my bed by the fire. They thought I would be afraid, so they put theirs by the side of mine on the floor. There was a great lot of corn np in the loft of t(?e cabin. In the night the rafters gave way, and the corn came down on us, and killed my sister Hannah and her husband. My hair hung loose, and the boards and corn held me down by my hair. The people collected early, hearing the great crash and my screams. Tbey pried the door open and took me out. It was a wonder to every-budy that I was not killed, too. 1 could say a good deal more but for the want of space. I shall close by saying my iiume, which was Rebecca Kennedy, daughter of Francis Kennedy, now is Rebecca Reeder, widow of Reuben Reeder. My residence at the present time is at Pleasant Kidge, Hamilton County, Ohio. DRUBBED BY DALZELL Millionaire Scott Shown to be a WHN ful Prevaricator. Washington, May 16.—Uongressraan John Dalzell, the eloquent new member from Pittsburg, took the floor unexpectedly this afternoon and in a short speech gave a tremendous drubbing to William L. Scott, the Democratic member from Erie, Pa., who is President Cleveland’s pet (Congressman ^d who has been selected by the Administration to achieve the political ruin of Mr. Randall and other protection Democrats. Mr. Scott made a long speech on the Mills bill last week, and Mrs. Cleveland was present for the first and only time during the tariff debate. Mr. Dalzell iaa brilliant man with much ready knowledge and a sharp tongue. He is personally familiar with Scott’s crooked business career by means of which he has amassed millions and he turned the light on him in a pitiless way. Said he: "I find my text in the extraordinary screed read by the gentleman from Erie last Friday, who is a demagogue with his mouth full of catchwords. The statesman from Erie says that the proposition that protection furnishes a home market for the farmers is a talacy and a fraud, and c'tes as an illustration the case of a farmer living near the great Edgar Thompson Steel Works,    in    my    district. As I have    lived    near    the steel works since    they    were    built I say freely that the gentleman’s illustration contains not one line or letter consistent with the truth. The teeming multitudes ¡mthered by the steel works furnisherl the armersof the vicinity with an ample accessible market, and that, too, for very many products which he could not sell before the works were constructed. If the alleged statesman from Erie, Mr. Soott, did not know this, he was grossly ignorant. If he was not ignorant, then his is a very bad case of moral obliqueness.’’ Mr. Dalzell went on in his cool, scathing way for twenty minutes, practically calling Mr. Scott a willful liar anda deplorable ass, and proving both of these unpleasant assertions. like dia- Ibe speech made shook the bouse up a charge of dynamite. Mr. Dalzell proved and showed the falsity of neariv every important statement in Scott’s speech and held up this pet of the administration as a ridlculoua ignoramus. F. B. L. PreshjterUsn General Asaemhly. Fhiladilfhia, Mav 17.—One of the moet important religious conventions ever held in the United States, that of the Presbytar-ian General Assembly, is in session here today. A strong effort will be made by the Chicago del^ates it is reported in favor of the consolidation and rennion of the Northern and Southern Presbyter iau Churches. Rev. Dr. Herrick, of the Northwestern University of Illinois, it is predicted will strenuously oppose the movement and will introduce the following reso-lutiuu: "The doctrine of the Northern Assembly on the spirituaiitv of the Church as connected with its political deliverances ia not essentially different from that entertained by the old and new School Assemblies. The Church can not coaseot to the establishment of a separate African Church." This in the main is the substance of the resolution, the introduction of which is expecteil to create serious dissension in tbs AsMmbly. The New York Press. New York. May 17.—The Tribune says: "It is clear that the Republicans of the Empire State are ready to enter upon the campaign with unity, vigor and oourage, in the firm resolve to retrieve what Mr. Pitts, the permanent Chairman of yesterday’s Convention, aptly called the 'great accident of 1884.’ ’’ These are the inues presented by New York: "Shall protection be abandoned and abolished; has the Government been reformed?’’ The Sun makes no editorial reference to the Convention. The other papers speak in tbeir custdmary disparaging manner of the Convention. Coming Back to the New Bod. New York, May 17.—Mrs. Parnell ia •gain coming to thia city from Ireland, where she has been during the past eighteen months seeking to restore her health. It was thought that when she left this country, shortly after the convention of the Irisn National I.eague of America at Chicuro In 1886, she bad "gone for good;’’ but Wm. J. Knoud, at whoa# home she stayed previoue to her departure for Europe, states that he has received a letter from her in which she expre^fsed the intention of soon quitting Ireland and returning to this, her native land. The Wheels Go Round. MiNNEAroLia, Minn., May 17.—The Northwestern Miller aays: "The milla made a very good showing again last week, the Sroduct being larger than the week before y reason of one mure mill running. The oiitput for (he week was 170,300 barrels, averaging 28,388 barrels daily, against 168,000 barrels the week before, siid 120,000 barrels for the corresponding time in 1887. There .are twenty mills in o|)eration to-day, the •ame as a week ago. but another that waa closed down Haturoay night for three dave’ renniriiig will be aurted this evening with a oaily output of 1,400 barrela" Strange That More Were Not Killed, Belvidbrb, N. j., May 17.—A terrltflo explosion occurred at the powder house at the Pratteville brown itone quarry near Stockton, tbia morning.
