THE POSITION OP WESTERS CON
GRESSMEN. Free Coinage and Blaine's Recip
rocity Suggestions Meet
with their Favor.
A Determination to Stand for their Rights
Manifested Regardless of Party
The Bold Stand of the Kansans for the
Interests of Silver Pederal Election
Bill in the House and Wyoming's
Statehood in the Senate
Washington, June26. As waseipected,
the house refused to concur in the senate
amendments to the silver bill, and the bill
will go to a conference with the probabil
ity that a bill embracing the features in
dicated in these dispatches yesterday will
be agreed upon. The one significant feat
ure yesterday was the positions assumed.
by the Kansas representatives who, with
out exception, arrayed themselves on the
side of free coinage. Their position the
other day on the reference of the bill
created the impression that they were
generally disposed to accede to the
wishes of tho majority of the party,
and would accept a liberal bill not
involving the free coinage feature, but the
pressure from their constituents became so
great that they today broke away from
their party and arrayed themselves solidly
on the side of free silver. It is an open
socret that they have all been deluged with
letters from their most intimate friends
nnd supporters, telling them that their
only hope of a political future rested upon
tneir lucntiiyiug tnemseivus on tue side ot
free silver. They have also been given to
understand that in the, present unsettled
condition of politics in their state any
other course would seriously embarrass
the part'. Jn consideration of these facts,
and inasmuch as the almost uni
versal feeling among their constituents
faeemed to be in favor of free silver, they
decided that the wisest course for them,
under the circumstances, was to stand for
the senate. The Democrats made a heroic
effort to keep their party solidly in line,
but were unable to do so.
A new feature has sprung into prom
inence, and it threatens to be the cause of
a good deal of friction before it is settled.
Reference is had to tho reciprosity sug
gestions of Mr. Blaine. It is unquestion
ably the fact that thee suggestions have
grown rapidly in favor, and especially
among tho western representatives, anil
the indications are that the senate will
embody the idea suggested in amendments
to the house bill. Should this be done
there is little doubt that the house will ac
cept them, in spite of whatever effort
may be made by certain of the Repub
lican leaders to secure their defeat. The
fact is, the western representatives are be
coming somewhat aggressive. The feeling
jm vails that the tendency of legislation is
inclined to be against their interests, and
they are rapidly approaching a point where
they propose to stand out for what thoy
think is their due, let the consequences be
wnat they may.
In thi, connection, it is interesting to
note the fact that .another boom seems to
be setting in for Mr. Blaine. His broad
gauged, comprehensive grasp of the situa
tion indicated in his communication to the
president has Avon for him the cordial ad
miration of many people who heretofore
have never been counted among his friends,
nnd he is by them and many others looked
o as the one man able to fully meet the
pressing needs of the hour.

THE WYOMING BILL.
Washington, June 20. The house bill
for the admission of "Wyoming as a state
was taken up and "Mr. Jones, of Arkansas,
addressed the senate.
The debate was further participated ia
by Messrs. Stewart and Reagan. An un
derstanding was reached that the vote on
the bill and amendments would begin at
4 o'clock tomorrow. In reference to that
agreement, Mr. Edmunds wanted it under
stood that it did not amount to an order of
the senate. There ought to be one body
in the country, he said, where there was
freedom of debate.

THE INTERNATIONAL BANK.
Washington, June 26. Representative
Dorsey, of Nebraska, from the committee
on banking and currency, today reported
a substitute for the bill incorporating an
International American bank. The sub
stitute, while preserving all the essential
features of the original bill, has been
drawn, the committee states, with the ob
ject especially in view of maintaining the
largest and most thorough control of the
corporation, without in any manner mak
ing the government a party to or responsi
ble for the business it may do. The com
mittee has incorporated in the bill many
provisions of the national banking act.

THE FIRST SESSION.
Chicago, 111., June 26. The world's fair
national commissioners began their first
meeting in this city at noon today. Judge
John T. Harris, of Virginia, was chosen
temporary chairman and made a brief
speech reviewing the historv and the
significence of the work in hand.
The roll of the 106 persons who make up
the full commission was called. There
were nine .absentees. J. H. McKenzie,
of Kentucky, precipitated a little turmoil
by offering a resolution that a committee
on permanent organization, consisting of
twelve, to be appointed by the chair to
recommend to the commission the names
of permanent officers to consist of a presi
dent, secretary and as many vice-presidents
as the committee should deem
proper and to define their duties
and to further report what stand
ing committees shall be appointed
and their duties. After it had been dis
cussed pro and con for a time, the resolu
tion was finally amended, making it tho
duty of the proposed committee to merely
point out the offices and the duties of
those who shall fill them, without recom
mending the nomination of any one.
John Boyd Thatcher, of New York, aroe
to say that within the last fifteen hours
the New York commissioners had been re
quested by Mr. Chauncey Depew to say
that his name should not be used in con
nection with the presidency. Colonel C.
H. Corbin was made temporary sergeant-at-arms.

Caliiorni, Smalley of Vermont, Cochrane
of Texas, Widener of Pennsylvauia,
Goodell of Colorado. Brcslin of New York,

An Enormous Bribe Puts the Bill Through
Baton Rouge, La., June 26. Six and
one querter million dollars may be consid
ed by many an exhorbitant price for one
vote in any general assembly, but such
was the price agreed upon by the Louisiana
State Lotterv company before the final
vote on the constitutional amendment in
the house of representatives yesterday.
It was well known that a cloe vote on the
amendment must be expected, and when
the qupstion came to a focus today, and
the previous question being called for, Mr.
Peter J. Law-ton, of Orleans parish, stated
that he would not voto for the amend
ment, unless in submitting the bill to the
senate an amendment should be marie in
creasing the licence from ?1,000,000 per
annum to $1,250,000 per annum for priv
ilege of conducting a lottery in the state
for the period of twenty-live" years. On a
submission of the question in the house
of representatives today with Mr. Law
ton's request acceded to by Mr. John A.
Morris, of the Louisiana Lottery company,
the vote stood for the amendment
66. against tho amendment 29,
absent three. This secured the
passage in the house of the bill submitting
the question to the popular vote of the
people of the state on a constitutional
amendment. Tomorrow the bill will in
all probability be presented to the senate
with the amendment attached to cover the
proposition of Mr. Newgars, who offers
$1,250,000 per annum for the franchise, and
will be finally disponed of in this body by
Monday or Tuesday of next week. Mr.
Morris, in acceding to the demand of Mr.
Law ton, agreed to pay as much as had
been offered by any one else for the priv
ilege of conducting" a lottery in the state
for the term of twenty-live years, which
was $1,250,000 per annum, Mr. 'Morris' first
offer being $1,000,000 per annum.

MISSIONARIES AND SHOTGUNS.
New Orleans, La., June 25. Reports
have been current for some time that some
white men claiming to be from the north
and styling themselves missionary preach
ers were in the parish living with the col
ored people on terms of social equality.
They advised the colored people not to
work for less than $1 per 100, and to allow
the cotton to rot rather than to work for
less. The planters refused to accede and
in consequence promising fields of a few
weeks ago, through lack of labor
and surplus of rain, nave turned grassy.
The preachers came to Amity and have
been pursuing the same course, holding
night meetings in colored churches with
armed guards at the doors. A committee
of young white men was appointed to wait
on the preachers and peacably urge them
to stop interferring with the coloreu labor.
The committee visited a colored minister,
where the white preachers were stopping,
and while conversing with him a number
of double-barraled shotguns loaded with
buckshot were fired at them by negroes.
Four of the committee were wounded.
The preachers have since left town.
Leading Provisions of the Instrument
Pormulated by the Ministers.
Rio de Janeiro, May 31. The new con
stitution has been elaborated by some of
the most noted lawyers and specialists of
Brazil under the immediate supervision of
the several ministers, who certainly repre
sent in a fair measure, the talent and "ex
perience of the country. The constitution
will bo the fundamental law of
the land only after tho constituent
assembly shall have approved it,
which approval is not likely to be with
held long, as all feel the necessity of legal
izing the government just as soon as pos
sible. Immediately after the decreeing of the
constitution there will be an election for
senators and deputies sixty-three of the
former (three for each state and federal
district) and 200 of the latter, according to
population. The two chambers will meet
and begin their legislative labors together
fin a constituent capacity. Immediately
after their first regular session and elec
tion of presiding officers the provisional
government will place in their
hands the functions of govern
ment exercised by the latter smco
the change effected on the loth of Novem
ber last, and the assembly Avill at once se
lect tho 7iew chief of state, who will then
proceed to organize a regular cabinet of
ministers. Then the assembly will revise
the constitution, and afterward promul
gate it as revised. Subsequently the two
chambers will assume their respective
functions as regular legislative bodies.
The following are tne principal ideas
contained in the constitution:
Parliamentarism ceases. Brazil adopts
the American system of a responsible
executive, with secretaries reponsible only
to him and to the people. The senator or
deputy who is chosen a secretary loses his
seat. "The first election of the president
will be in November next by congress.but
tho constitution establishes that this
election subsequently shall bo by
means of electors, the people to
select electors in proportion to their
delegations in congress. Each state
has a separate meeting of its electors on
the same day and at the same hour. If no
citizen shall obtain an absolute majority
of the electral college, then congress shall
elect choosing from the three persons who
may have tho largest number of votes.
After this, in case no one is as yet elected,
congress shall again vote, dropping the
third name and voting for the two
who have the largest number of
votes, so that the president-elect shall
have an absolute majority of the votes
cist. The president shall be elected for
six years, and shall be ineligible for the
next ten yearssucceeding his term of office.
The secretaries of state are ineligible for
the presidency during their term of office.
The president of the senate will be the vice
president of the republic. In case of the ab
sencc or death of the presideut, his office
shall be filled by the vice president, next
by the speaker "of the house of representa
tives, next by tho vice president of tho
senate and lastly by the president of the
supreme tribunal of justice.
ALL HOPE ABANDONED.
The Imprisoned Miners Thought to Be Dead
by This Time.
Dcnbar, Pa., June 23. A report that
the rescuers had broken into Hill Farm
mine proves to be faKe. The report arose
from the fact, that the rescuing party broke
through a heavy "gob" into a small
opening. From this cause, the course
of ventilation was changed and nearly an
hour and a half "was spent in
bracing up, so they could go abend.
The carefulness with which the min
ers are working is shown from this.
Mr. Keighley would not permit the men
to advance until the air had been thor
oughly tested. During the day good
progress has been made and the inapectors
think they are where the line of coat
should be." Mr. "Worman, who for years
was boss of the Mahoning mine and under
whose direction the coal in this part of it
was mined, says that the working party is
verv near the coal, and then he added:
"When we strike it we can go at the rate
of six feet an hour." This will probably
brine them into the mine during the early
morning hours. All hopes of finding the
men alive has been abandoned.
BISHOP SPALDING ON WOMAN.
Notre Dame, Ind., June 2d The radi
cal declaration of Bishop Spalding, of
Peoria, speaking to the faculty and stu
dents of Notre Dame university on the
position of women has created a sensation
here among Catholics. Last evening at
the commencement of St. Mary's academy
he went even farther. He said that the
position of woman had been the position
that the southern planters irave their i
slaves; it was no better today than it was
years ago. They were treated kindly as I
the slaves of the "men he knew had been i
treated, but kept in ignorance. In this
country, however, woman had emanci
pated themselves. American women are
more intelligent than American men. The
bishop's words seemed very much like a
statement of advanced belief in woman'
rights. They were applauded again and

in money. If it is found the government

Shawnee's County Attorney Enjoined From
Topeka, Kan., Jtyie 20. The original
package men have again resorted to the
United States circuit court Two or three
days ago Landis Yount and Bernard
Tuchman filed a petition in the United
States court for an injunction restraining
R. B. "Welch, county attorney, from taking
any steps to have them punished for con
tempt of court in selling original
packages contrary to thetf-injunction of
the district court. They claim that as
this injunction is based on the same
facts upon which they were put in jail and
as the United States court held the acts
for which they were jailed to be lawful tho
injunction was dissolved; but Mr. Welch
is going to test the matter, The United
States court issued the following restrain
ing order, which was served on Mr. Welch
"Whereas it has been maae to appear De
fore me, C. G. Foster, district judge and
ex-oflicio one of the judges, of ,.said court
(circuit court), that in a irxafif action
now pending in Clio district, court
of Shawnee county, Kansas, you
threaten td and are about to take such
steps and to institute such proceedings as
will deprive said plaintiff of his rights
tinder the constitution of the United
States. Now, therefore, this is to command
you to desist from further prosecuting
said action and that you take no further
steps or proceedings therein until the
further order of this court in the premises,
and it is ordered that this cause be set
down for hearing upon the question as to
a temporary injunction on the 30th day of
June, 1SD0, at 10:30 a. m. of said dav.
C. G. Foster, Judge.
It i claimed by attorneys that the in
junction proceedings brought against the
countv officers to restrain them from
prosecuting parties heretofore released by
the United States court can not be made
permanent, for the reason that the United
States statute forbids the enjoining of a
state court by a federal court.
The original package dealers have in view
the bringing of suits against the county
ollicers for damages in the sum of $10,0V)
each for unlawfully, maliciously and
willfully interfering with them in carrying
on their business.
Another phase of the package matter is
suggested iu an opinion by United States
Attorney J. W. Ally, of the district of
Kansas. It is generally supposed that tho
passage of the Wilson bill will set
tle the whole controversy, and that local
laws will then be in full force. Attorney
Ady holds to the contrary. He sa-s:
"The supreme court decides that the
state laws now in force have no application
to the subject of liquors impoited and sold
in original packages. It is not a crime
now to make such sales within our state.
Will it be tomorrow if the Wilson bill
becomes a law? Congress has no power
to make any act done in Kansas a crime
under our state laws, and contrress does
not attempt to do st. The Wilson bill
is simply an enabling act. It proposes
to give power to the states to regulate
this branch of interstate commerce,
if they will. It would be a singular act
of congress that would put into
effect a license law in Minnesota, local op
tion in Pennsyhauia and straicht prohibi
tion in Kansas. After the Wilson bill
passes the sale of liquor in original pack
ages will still continue to be interstate
commerce. The court says interstate com
merce is free, and the presumption that
congress and the states intend that it shall
be free, will continue until there is a direct
acton the subject. All the state- laws on
that subject now are no laws; they are
dead matter. The Wilson bill will not in
fuse new life into them."
Mr. Ady contends that the only remedy
in Kan"as is for the people to elect a legis
lature that will pass a law regulating this
traffic in such manner as may be war
ranted under the Wilson bill.
THREE MORE ARRESTS.
Topeka. Kan., June 26. Three more
venders of original packages were arrested
todav. all in North Topeka, Doc Burns, J.
R. Miller and Sam Farr. Burns was re
leased on habeas corpus but the other two
lieinjail. Thee continued arrests and a t
rreat decrease in the amount of sales cause
the package agents considerable discour
agement. One of the largest dealers in the
city said today to an Associated Press re
porter that the business is dull and there
is little monev in it even when dealers are
not molested "bv the law.
HARPER COUNTY POLITICS.
Special dispatch to the Daur Eaele-
Axthosv, Kan., June 26. The primaries
yesterday resulted in a pretty equal divi
sion of delegates between I. A. Love and
R. P. McCnlloch. Barber county gave a
majority for Judge Edwards. Two wards
in Harper City are for Judge Ellis. It is
pretty certain that onr county convention
will go for either Love or McCalloch solid
to the judicial convention. It has been a
fair, square fight, In the best of temper,
between the two candidates and the dis
trict will cure a cood judge with either.

and no stronger name can be put on the
ticket to strengthen it than that of O. F.
Changes in the First National bank are
rumored which will probably materialize.
The wheat harvest is over in Harper
county and a better quality was. never cut.
It will perhaps not run over ten bushels
average to the acre, but there was 50 per
cent more acreage this year than last, so
that the yield this year "will about equal
that of last year, with less poor wheat.
But little wheat is offering yet and brings
65 cents on the street. Corn is looking
well and with another rain in a ievr days
will pan out in good shape.
FROM BELLE PLAINE.
Special Dispatch to the Dallv Eacle.
Belle Plaine, Kan., June 26. Belle
Plaine people are making preparations for
an immense time the Fourth of July. Mr.
Hart Dunning, the manager of the fair
association grounds, states that they have
a great many horses now in training for
the Fourth and there is going to be some
prett' good stepping. Quite a good many
horses from "Wichita are at the stables
under Mr. Dnnuing's charge as he has the
reputation all over the state of being a first
The people of this county want to see it
begin to rain as they only "had a sprinkle
of the last big rain which fell at Wichita
and west of there last week.
It seems that the counties around are
going to make a grand turnout to the
southwestern Kansas fair to be held at
Wichita the hist week in September.
However, it begins on the day of Sumner
county's wind up. They will all be there
and if Wichita don't show the people of
southwestern Kansas some pretty fine
races this fall it will be because the horses
of our state and adjoining states are not
equal to the emergency.
If all the farmers would make a vow
that they were going to raise better horses
it would not be long until Kansas would
have a reputation like the bluegrass re
goins of old Kentucky, and some day
UKlahoma ana all Texas will be depenaing
upon Kansas for their driving horses.
The wheat is a inequality in this county
but the yield not so great as last year.

acres of golden colored shocks of wheat

A great many of the strip cattle will bo

cattle men and the farmers.

The Dreaded Cattle Scourge Said to be in
CEDARVlLLE. Kan., June 26. A messen
ger from Spring Creek postoftice, about
lifteeu miles northeast of Cedarville, ar
rived here this afternoon and brings the
startling news that the herds in the Middle
Canev river district are all threatened
with the deadly Texas or splenic fever and
that a number of cattle have died from
that cause near Spring Creek, and that all
Texas cattle in that locality have been
quarantined since Monday last.
On last Saturday two cows belonging to
A. Logsdon, of Spring Creek, sickened and
uieu ana L. Hutton, arren neatlev ami
II. A. Oinsby. neighboring ranchmen,
made an examination into tho cause and
all pronounced it Texas fever. Upon
these grounds a member of the live stock
sanitary commission was sent for, Keenan
Hurst "responding. Having made nn in
vestigation of the condition of the Texas
cattle in that neighborhood, and the cause
of several dcaths,"he issued a quarantine
order forthwith. The symptoms of tho
two cases mentioned as having occurred
ia A. Logsdon's henl were given by an eyo
witness who described them as follows:
They both exhibited a great increase in
heat from the outset of their illness, quick
pulse, dejected appearance, arched hack,
sunken Hanks, staggering gait aud rough
hair. After it died the spleen of one was
taken out and found to Aveigh eight and
Several other reports of Texas fever have
been had from various portions of this,
Chautauqua county, but until the forego
ing detailed account was received no cre
dence had been given them. The situation
is now changed, and ranchmen who have
Texas cattle have no fears for
the worst. The weather is ex
ceedingly hot, nnd the only hope is that
if the fever does break out" in one section
that a strict quarrantine may prevent it
from spreading. To do this the work of
thestato live stock sanitary commission
has been carried on quietly, so as to create
as little excitement as possible. The de
velopments of the next day or two will
indicate what extent quarantine precau
tions must assume, and whether or not
there is absolute danger of the dreaded
disease becoming a plague, as is now
feared. Amos Bros, are said to have tho largest
herd in the Middle Caney district, and
fears arc entertained that the fever has
already been contracted by their cattle.
POTTER ON PENSIONS.
He Scorea the Schemes for Lavish Giv
ing of Public Honey.
New York, Juno 20. Bishop Potter de
livered the annual address today to tho
Piii Beta Kappa society, of Harvard col
lege, raking for his theme "The Scholar
and the State " The address was a master
1' effort and showed great care and
thought in the preparation. In the conre
of his address he said; "With us there is.
you will say, no throne to be bought or
sold, and no prctorian guard to claim the
price or deliver the sceptre, but we may
not forget that the events of our recent
struggle for national existence have left
behind them a condition ot things which
makes possible h situation only less scan
dalous because les open ami notorious.
The honorable provision for those wiio
suffered and were disabled in their coun
try's defense threatens, under the selfish
and unscrupulous manipulation of those
who see in the degredatiou of their fellow
citizens a short and easy roud to politicul
supremacy, to become a pauper
izing syfctem whose least and
most innocent consequencesd is the ruin
ous burden which it is destined, sooner or
later, to saddle upon the public treasury.
Never was there a phariseeism of philan
thropy in which pergonal aggrandizement
more Impudently masqueraded in tho gar
ment of a grateful patriotism than our
halls of congress have lately presented, and
the unmanly silence with which schemes
so grotesque that they should have long
ago been laughed out of any intelligent
public assembly, have been received upon
tho most amazing facts of our political ex
perience. It has come to pans that not
alone some 'carred and honorable veteran,
that not alone some brave and manned
survivor of an heroic charge, that not
alone tho widow and orphan whom death
on the field or in the hospital have
left penniless but etery skulking

with the name of civic gratitude, but for

alarm which can not easily be barred of
