PRICE TWO GENTS.
22D YEAJt NO. 6,881.
WASHINGTON, D. C, 3FKIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 22, 1890.
1HERE WILL HE NO FEDERAL
COERCION AT THE POLL",
AT LEAST NOT DURING THIS MUM.
Senator Quay Succeeds in Having tho
Eorco Bill Postponed.
SECRET SESSION HELD THIS MORNING.
Hoar Is Lei Down Easily, and Gets an
Empty Honor News and Gossip
of the Situation.
As slated In Tub Cnrrtc yesterday, n
confctcnco oPRepubllcan Senators was
hold last night at Senator McMillan's
residence. It was well attended, and
those not present In person were reprc
ecntcd by proxy.
The result was a complete victory for
Senator Quay. It was decided to let the
lorco bill go over until next winter.
To let Senator Hoar and his allies
down easy, a committee was appointed
tn consider tho situation and report a
substitute for all tho pending resolu
tions, substitutes and amendments.
Tho barren honor of chairman was ac
corded to Mr. Hoar.
This committee met In secret session
at tbo Capitol this morntnir. It is
thought It will rcpoit n resolution sub
stantially tho same as Mr. Quay's, with
n clause added postponing the Force
bill until next December. Mr. Hoar
will endeavor to have his pet bill taken
tip on mo nrsi uay 01 1110 session ana a
day set for tho taking of a voto on tho
Ml! and the amendments.
If such a resolution be rcnortcd It
will precipitate a prolonged douato, and
wl'l probably, If persisted in, dolay a
.Alii llm 'ftivIfY l.lll In n .mm.. ,n -
, UIV V. l.(U All... Ull, .1. I. , ajf Ktj liA-
asperate those interested in It.
Tho Ouav resolution Is now on too
Senate calendar, and under tho ruling
ot tne rrcsiucnt pra ttmjtore can only
bo taken up by unanimous consjat, or
by a majority voto.
Slncularlv enough there Is not In the
standlnir rules of tho Senate any rule to
nut a sltnnlo resolution on the calendar.
Tho rules provide for tho placing on the
calendar or bills nnu Jolut resolutions,
but there Is not a paragraph, a line or a
word to authorize the nuttlne of a slm-
.Vln resolution thereon.
It appears, therefore, that Mr. Inzalls
Is preparing In n subtle way, to follow
I In the footsteps of Speaker Heed.
However. It Is not likely that this
matter will come to an Issue. Tho re-
ncrt of tho committee appointed by last
night's conference will supersede the
Quay resolution, and the tight will be
made on that. As stated, this commit
tee will report a resolution practically
Identical with Quay's in effect, though
werded so as to salve the lacerate!
feelings of the aired Hoar.
Tho Conference Committee has
acrccd to report a resolution to close
debate on tbo Tariff bill August 30, and
tulio a final voto on bopterabera. The
Lottery, Pure Food and other bills,
named In Quay's resolution, are in
cluded. The resolution will be offered to the
I Senate as soon as signature enough to
Insure its passage are obtain!.
It Is predicted there will be a monkey
I and parrot time In the Senate before it

IS HARDERACKER AQERMAM SDBJEOT
OR AN AMERICAN CITIZEN?
White on it Vl.lt In llnvarl llo In Ar-
irntcil ami Forcllily Unrolled In
J.'iuoerur Wlltlum'n Army.
In 1868 a Bavarian widow, a Mrs.
Harderackcr, emigrated to this country.
She was accompanied by her son John,
then n lad tn his teens. Some time later
sho married a naturalized German by
the name of Andrew Krauts, a cltlen
of Cleveland, Ohio. Last spring the
family went to Bavaria on a visit.
About sis weeks ago they all returned
except John, who only lacked a few
weeks of attaining his majority. He
concluded to remain a couple of weeks
longer. Perhaps ho found tbe beer of
his natlvo Bavaria too tempting. But
lie made a mlttake. About the lime he
was ready to embark he was arrested
ami forcibly enrolled In the Germiu
army. He was at the time within a few
days of his majority.
TbU Impressment into military serv
ice of Germans naturalised In this
country as American cltiieas was
FORMRKLY A COMMON l'KCTIC8.
It was supposed to be stopped by the
treaty with Germany of 1875. Prince
Bl-marck, then Chancollor of tho Ger
man Empire, said at the time that
"Citizenship in Ameilca consisted ot
five years' residence and the renunci
ation of the German nationality."
Certain exceptions were, however,
rceognlzed In the second article ot the
tieaty, such as a man's emigrating
while in the military service In other
words, deserting or being enrolled for
such service, or, having attained tbe
age for military service, he escapee to
evade the duty.
Of course. In ease of the arrest of a
citizen ot this country, either native or.

The mesent ease is a peculiar one.
John Harderacker was born in Bavaria,
and was a minor when he eawe to this
country. His father was dead. A wor
ried woman's nationality Is that of her
husband. Young Harderaeker's mother
was therefore a German subject when
she emigrated. She never took out
naturalisation patters, but she married
a naturalized citizen of this country.
Consequently she became

thai be correct, then the young man is
improperly held by the German au
thorities and will have to be released.
He certainly can be held under neither
of the three exceptions named in the
treaty of 1873 and recited above.

FATAL BOATING ACCIDENT.
All lint Una of n IMcnnnro I'nrtr of
Whitimtosis, I,. I., Aug. 33 The
employes of the Sohaeffer Hrewlng
Company of New York held their an
nual excursion at Stlmmel's pivlllon
yesterday afternoon. While thedam--Ing
was going on In the pavilion a
party Including John I.RQgel, Herman
Under, Jlorltr. Slelgler, JIarie Supp,
lleilha lllls ami Theresa Langel hired
a rnwbflRt and started out into the Iny.
Before they had gone a great distance
persons on the shore heard the womn
In the Iwat screaming. The next In
stant tbe boat was seen to upset, ami all
the occupants were thrown Into the
water. It Is not known whether the
men were poor swimmers or lost their
lives while attempting to save the
women, but all sank before assistance
could reach them.
Edward IMackey, Jr., was sailing
atouml In his boat and offered to take
tome of the people from the rowlioat,
as ho thought It would prevent a disas
ter. Hut his offer was rejected, and he
was told to no about his business. Five
minutes later his attention was attracted
to cries which camo from the boat. He
saw the Theresa Langel struggling in
the water, and seized her as she was
about to sink and brought her safely
ashore with great difficulty.
She became unconscious, and when
she regained her senses sho was suffer
ing so much from fright and shock that
sho could not give a clear account of
how the accident occurred. It Is said
that none of the men know how to
manage the craft. It Is believed that
the boat was caught In n heavy wash
from a sound steamer, which was pass
Ing about that time. Up to a late hour
last night none of the bodies had been
recovered. A number of boatmen went
out to search, but tho severe storm
which set In compelled them lo return
to the shore

Arromi the Sen.
Lon-oon, Aug. 32. The papers are
congratulating Lord Salisbury upon the
successful settlement of the dispute be
tneen England aud Portugal, which at
one time threatened to result In war.
Thovif h a conlllct at arms with Portu
gal could hardly have ended otherwise
than In a victory for Kngland, yet the
popular feeling was very strongly averse
to a resort to force, and the peaceful
conclusion of the affair Is hailed with
plcfltureby all classes and parties. The
sentlmefit of tbe Koglish people dis
placed throughout this controversy U a
tilklrg Indication of the change
which has gradually come over
tbe public mind in recent years In
regard to war. Some years ago the
mere fact that Portugal was a small
and weak nation would not have been
regarded as any reason for refraining
from a war which promised to add a
consldkrable area of valuable territory
to Ilrftlsh dominion!. The war with
the brae little community of lloers in
South Afilca Is a proof of this fact, and
it can hardly be doubted that tbe shame
width that barbarous crushing ot a
liberty loving aud Inoffensive people

J. J. Ilarkor, Sir. Ilullls attorney, and
Mr. C. Maurice Smith, the counsel for
Mr. Turner, were promptly on hand to

Mr. llarkcr asked that Judge Bradley
make an order retaining Mr. Turner In
tho court-room until the proceeding
had been disposed of, as ho proposed to
have him arrested for

Judge Ilradley said that he would not
mako such order.
Mr. Bmlth. In beholf of his client,

on various statuatory acti In regard to
tbe habeas corpus, and Mr. Smith sug
gested that more time be taken for the
consideration of the cose.
This Mr. lUuker consented to, but
asked that the petitioner be allowed his

Mr. Smith objected ami luaMad that

Judge Ilradlty In reply said, "If any

No doubt he was improperly advised
and acted upon it. I do not think he Is
the proper man to have custody ot this

demonstration ot this In my
own presence on Tuesday morning
whin Mr. Turner undertook to take the
petitioner from the door of tbe court
room. Mr Ilullls has shown no dispo

Nkw York, Aug. 33 Just what the
executive bonrd of tk-e Knights ot IVibor
will do to day It Is difficult to siirmlae.
A reirt was prevalent that jwselbly
tic fore long the mechanics along
Hie line of the New York Cen
tral and Hudson Hirer Hatlroad
would be ordered out. Upon this
point Mr. Webb was iuetioned
and said. "Anticipating some ten days
ago that, by allowing the men employed
tn our various shops to remr.ln I was
furnishing ammunition to the Ivntghts,
I nt once ordered the shotH to be elated.
nnd directed that only enough help be
retained to perform the actual, neces
sary repalts that are required each day.
Al the present time we have fully
G.000 cats In course of construction
at West Albany and there 1,'JOO were
laid off. If tbe mechanics are ordered
to stop work by the Federation we aro
fully prepared to meet the emergency,
and, as tue number of men that would
be atlccted Is comparatively small,
their places would be rapidly tilled,"
Commiwloner Donovan or the Hoard
of Arbitration called on Mr. Webb, and
tbe two gentlemen bad a consulta
tion. Mr. Donovan will have a con
ference at a 30 with .Air. l'owderly
at the .Murray Hill Hotel nnd will there
make public the result of both Inter
views. Tomorrow the State ltoud of

Ai,A.w. K. Y., Aug. SS.Telegramt
received in this city today locale the
c suae of Mr. l'owderly's letter to Chief
Arthur a occurring In this section.
The charge U that the striking Kulghu
ot Labor firemen's place in this city
were taken by the relief force of
ccginecrs, thus glvlnir practlc.il
aid to the road In tilling vacui
ties. The inference drawn wis
that tbe firemen are hostile
to the strikers. Investigation shows
that on tbe Saturday following the first
day of the strike about thirty firemen
between this Ity and Syracuse left their
engines. The blockade sot yet being
raised, has precluded tbe need of filling
ail of these places, but such engine a
were needed have been supplied by
other engineer In taking the place of
the striker and working a tlretnea.
It U safe to say that in and about the
city are at least ten locomotive engi
neers dotng the work of the striker.
The K of L. men here cl.tim that Chief
Arthur know nothing of this, and that
It will now be stopped. Of Division
46, Locomotive Engineers, of this city,
Patrick Haley and Thomas Judge are
both firing on freight trains. Of Di
vision 5 of Kast Albany Louis Wright
Is firing on a freight engine and Charles
Kenton has taken tbe place of a striker
on the draw bridge.
The strikers are very jubilant over
the situation to day and say they will
yet win. The Central ha moved some
freight this mornlnjc ami the passenger
train are running on better time thui
but night. At West Albany the track
are being cleared and tbe machine shop
opened this morning with about a tfeiid
of the complement of men.
