LONDON, AUK. 2.lu the house of commons
this evening the debate on Lord Hartington's
resolution was resumed. Lord Elcho, con
servative, vehemently assailed the opposition,
attributing the llusso-Turkish war to their con
duct. Forester, liberal, attributed the war to
the government isolating itself from the other
powers. Like other opposition speakers he
based his principle of attack on the Anglo
Turkish convention, which he declared was un
constitutional in the manner of its conclusion.
O'Donnell, home rule, supported the govern
ment, declaring the opposition had not a rag of
foreign policy. The debate wab continued at
length by less known members. At one time
as many as thirty opposition members rose to
their teet simultaneously. Kolbuck said the
conduct of the liberals throughout the crisis
had been such that he did not think either
himself or Gladstone would live to see them in
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Liberal, de
clared he thought the government was inse
cure that it had no belief whatever that any
danger was to be apprehended from Jtusaia in
Asia Minor, but that it wanted a pretext
for acquiring Cyprus.
Dr. Isaac Butt, Liberal and Home Ruler,
announced he would support the government.
Or. Wilfred Lawson, Radical, expressed sur
prise that Plunkett's vote of confidence was
not more strongly worded so as to obtain a
definite decision before the dissolution of par
liament was imminent.
Sir Stafford Northcote declared that in re
gard to the prerogative of the crown, the
government had acted strictly in accordance
with precedent. He pointed out that it was
unfair for Lord Hartington to compare the
treaty of Berlin with that of 1850, as the key
stone of the treaty of 185(5, namely, the inde
pendence and integrity of Turkey, had been de
stroyed by the treaty of Kan Stefano. The
government had succeeded in restoring much
of Turkey's independence and integrity,
though after the results of the war it was
impossible to insist upon their-maintenance as
deli tied by the treaty of 1850. lie entered into
details in refutation of Gladstone's statement
in regard to the attitude of the British pleni
potentiaries at the congress. The government
had used its influence to prevent Turkey from
attacking Greece when she could have done so
with overwhelming power, in regard to the
Anglo-Turkish convention, he said it was
necessary to prevent Russia from
undermining British influence in the East, and
secrecy was necessary for speedy negotiations.
The principal point in his speech was an em
phatic denial of tho existanoe of any other se
cret engagement, although he admitted it was
f|uite true there had been confidential commu
nications. In conclusion he maintained it was
the duty and interest of England to maintain
Turkey in aw strong a position as practicable.
T..E HEHOr.UTION UEIEOTED.
Lord Hartington briefly replied, closing the
debate. The house then divided on Lord Hart
ington's resolution, and it was rejected, 195 af
firmative, 335 negative. The announcement of
the vote was received with loud and prolonged
cheering. The amendment moved by Handle
Plunkett as a vote, of confidence, was then re
jected without division.

NEW YORK, Aug. 2.The Congressional
committee on the labor question resumed its
session this morning, Mr. Hewitt presiding*
Bartholomew, chairman the Social Demo
cratic party, resumed his testimony. He said
Times are worse now than in 1870. He was a
piano maker, and in inflated times his wages
did not go up, but after the panic fell 20 per
cent. He argued for the establishment of a
labor bureau similar to that in Massachusetts,
and that no politician Bhould be allowed to
have anything to do with it. He would have
no accumulation of capital in private hands,
but under control of the government for the
benefit of the people. In this state of society
there would be no desire among work
men to accumulate, as they would be
sure of: constant employment.
Still, he would not pay one man as much as
another, but give each salary or wages equal to
the amount and perfection of his work.
The committee questioned Bartholomew on
the practical working of his system of co-oper
ative socities, but, being unable to answer, he
was prevailed upon to retire.
The rest of the Socialists had for a consider
able time watched Bartholomew's hopeless
ineanderings with disgust. At last the mutter
ings of "what an ox," "what an ass,", on the
part of his comrades became so loud that Bar
tholomew sat down.
Isaac Bennett, cigarmaker, advocated the
regulation of the use of machinery, not its de
struction. He wanted machinery regulated to
such extent that it would not cause the en
forced idleness of workmen. Bennett also ad
vocated co-operative societies, but said the
cigar makers could not go into this co-opera
tive system at present because they did not
have the means.
Hewitt"Oh then you do want capital."
The answer was, in part, that the reduction
of hours of labor to eight hours per day would
Boyd, of Illinois"Then would not the re
duction of a day's labor to six hours still fur
ther increase wages?"
To this there was no reply.
Adolph Douai, of the Socialistic labor party,
next appeared and discussed the land laws of
England of an ancient date. He maintained
that the government ought to provide land for
every man and woman in the United States.
He claimed the government should enact a law
to prevent men from being forced to labor
lont'er than eight hours a day, and forbidding
their engagement in any occupation that would
be injurious to their health or constitution.
Some amusement was created when, in an
swer to inquiries as to hours and regulations in
Krupp's factory, Douai intimated Herr Krnpp
was bankrupt and that his money was deposit
ed in English banks in his wife's name.
At the afternoon session, James Connelly,
representing the national Greenback party,
ascribed the depression in labor to the bond
system, saying people take their money out of
manufactures and invest it in bonds, on which
they obtain interest. He denounced the rail
road land grants, and thought the government
should have built its own railroads. A great
means, ho declared, to relieve the dis
tresses among the laboring classes
was for the government to
assist them to settle on the public lands and
insure them support until they reaped the first
crop. He affirmed that all laws of Congress
were in favor of large manufacturers and
dealers, and tended to crush out the middle and
After hearing a few other witnesses whose
views were similar to those given, the commit
tee invited manufacturers, business men, etc.,
to give their views.

THE HEATHEN CHINEE.
Tho Embassy E Konte for Washington
Present and Prospective Relations Be
tween China and the United States.
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 2.The Chinese embassy
will leave here to-morrow for the East by spe
cial car. By an arrangement his excellency
held an extended interview last evening with
Col. Bee, attorney of the Chinese companies,
several prominent Chinese merchants being
present. Matters were discussed relative
to the treatment of his countrymen
here and the relations existing between
the twtr governments. Col. Bee is not
at liberty to give his excellency's conclusions,
but says he repeatedly alluded to the great
friendship felt by his government towards
that of the United States, which he believed
was reciprocated. He knew of nothing having
transpired to change these friendly relations.
He spoke in high commendation of ex-Minister
Howe and Mr. Seward, and especially referred
to S. Wella Williams, late secretary of legation,
as having done much during his long
residence in China to bring about the
present amicable relations existing be
tween the two nations. He saw much
in the future to increase this sentiment, and
the establishment of this embassy at Washing
ton would bring the two governments into
closer commercial relations and give the United
States the advantages heretofore more largely
enjoyed by the older nations.
Although the federal, State and municipal
authorities have paid the embassy no official
courtesies they have been the recipients of at
tention from many prominent citizens during
their stay in the city.

CHICAGO, Aug. 2.Dispatches from Muske
gon, Mich., state" that the monument erected to
Capt. Jonathan Walker, by Rev. Protius Firn,
of Greece, was unveiled at that place yester

branded hand, a cognomen derived from the
fact that the palm of his right hand was
branded "S. S." (slave stealer) on account of
his having assisted in running fugitives over
into Canada on his vessel. Porter Pillsbury,
ex-Congressman Williams, Gen. Pritchard and
others made addresses.
Decision of Secretary Schurz to be Contested
CHICAGO, Aug. 2.The land agent of the

possession of land granted to the Union Pacific
railroad by the government. Any such set
tlers will be dealt with as trespassers.

says that between 1:30 and 3 o'clock a
couple whirled around the corner of Pacific
avenue, the horse going at a full gallop, and
dashed up Johnson street towards where I was
sitting on a pile of dirt and stones. As the
vehicle drew near, the driver exclaimed: "Why
don't you have your damned light burning?"
I seized the light and ran out into the street to
give him an opportunity to see where to drive*
and as he dashed past I heard a voice inside the
coupe say, "Go on driver, go on for God's sake,
goon!" This coupe was seen by others wait
ing on Pacific avenue, and it is said the police

given them by him they arrested Bennett. The
funeral will take place to-morrow, and will be
attended by a detachment of police and Amity

President Keep Gives His Views of the
Crop Yield of the Northwest, but Ignores
Northern Minnesota Wheat Damaged
by Ileut, but the Loss Overestimated
Barley Poor, but Oats and Corn Good
Michigan Hut Forth for 30,000,000 Bush
els of Waeur.
CHICAGO, Aug. 2.President Keep has just
returned from a trip over the Northwestern
railway and all its tributaries. As he has care
fully examined the crop prospects in the
regions where the greatest damage has been
done by unfavorable weather, his conclusions
are of interest. He says corn was back
ward until two or three weeks ago when it took
a sudden start and is now as forward as usual
at this time. In Iowa it promises as good as
last year. Wheat is generally injured largely
by heat, the worst injury being in northern
Iowa and southern Minnesota. Here both
quality and quantity are affected, and the gen
eral yield will not exceed ten bushels per
acre. Western Iowa is better than eastern,
j. here the average will be twelve to fifteen
bushels. Farmers in Minnesota seem dis
couraged, but elsewhere are in better spirits.
The proportion of absolutely worthless wheat
is very small, and but an occasional field has
been abandoned. Oats are generally fair.
Barley poor yield. In Iowa and Minnesota
wheat is mostly gathered. There will be as
much business for the Chicago & Northwestern
road in every article of grain except wheat as
there was last year. The damage to crops has
been considerably over-estimated, and other
gentlemen who accompanied President Keep
concur in this opinion.
Crops in Mivlrifian.
DETROIT, Mich., Aug. 2i The Free Press to
morrow will print crop reports from every
county in Michigan in which wheat is raised to
any extent. Tho entire yield is put at 30,000,-
000 bushels, a crop beyond all precedent in this
State, and placing Michigan among the fore
most wheat producing States of the Union.
The average yield per acre is between 19 and 20
bushels. The crop, though not equal in quali
ty to last seabon, is fully up to the average.
The prospect for corn is much better than in
the earlier part of this season. Oats not up to
The Sacbarine Substance to be Extracted
from the Cane and Manufactured Into
Sugar and Syrup Upon the Fair Grounds.
One of the greatest attractions at the State
fair this year, especially to farmers, will be the
manufacture, on the grounds, of sugar and
syrup from Amber cane, grown in the State this
season. This part of the exhibition will be
under the supervision of Mr. C. F. Miller, of
Dundas, and Mr. Seth Kinney, of Morristown,
Faribault county. To these gentlemen is Min
nesota indebted for the introduction into the
State of the Amber cane, and the perfection of
the machinery for its manufacture into sugar
and syrups of splendid quality, and at a cost,
it is claimed, that makes it exceedingly profit
able to parties engaging in the business.
At first these gentlemen proposed to make
their exhibition in connection with Mr. King's
show at Minneapolis, but recognizing the fact
that their discoveries and improvements in
terested the whole people of the State, and
that to bring them into the greatest pos
sible general notice, and under the most favor
able circumstances, the exhibition mu6t be
made where the greatest number of people
would congregate, they decided to make their
display in connection with the State fair.
In this determination Messrs. Miller and
Kinney have been heartily seconded by the
officers of the fair, who have caused a building
to by built especially for their purposes. In
this building machinery for the manufacture
of both sugar and syrups will be placed, to
gether with a large stock of cane, and during
the six days of the fair, the manufacture will
be proceeded with continually, giving all de
siring an opportunity to see the modus operandi,
while Messrs. Miller and Kinney will be in
attendance, prepared to explain the manner of
cane cultivation, cost of preparing the ground,
cultivating during growth, sowing, etc., best
machinery, cost of product, and information
upon all other points connected with the very
The GLOBE predicts that the Minnesota sugar
house at the State fair will be a great point of
interest, and that the information which will
there be disseminated will be of great advan
tage to the people.
A BAD BIRD.
White B!(rd With Forty Warriors Refuse
to SurrenderVolunteers Organizing to
SAN FHANCISCO, Aug. 2A Portland dispatch
says-j The following dispatch received here
from Lewiston July 31st, via Walla Walla.Aug.
2: White Bird is on the forks of Clear creek
about Kaiwah, and has possession of the
old cattle ground. He has about
forty warriors with him. The Kamiah Indians
have interviewed White Bird to ascertain his
intention. He declared he will not surrender,
but has come to get what belongs to him. The
Indians are well armed, and partly mounted.
They have been in Elk City mountains
for weeks. The excitement on Kamas Prairie
is great. Sixty volunteers are in readiness to
proceed against them. Major Hancock has
advised a little delay until more can be ascer
tained of White Bird's intentions. Apprehen
sions exist that White Bird is baeked by
some of Sitting Bull's men, who are scattered
through the mountains. There are no troops
in this section that can make a stand against
even White Bird's band of forty, and volun
teers will be compelled to do the fightin
any is done.

"Special Cases" Growing Out of the Louisi
ana and Florida Elections Which Presi
dent Hayes Has Provided For.
Sometime ago the Post published a list of
the "special cases" that had been brought to
the attention of Mr. Hayes, and disposed of
by him or his associates. This list was far
from being complete, as it included only the
most prominent of the ballot-box-stuffers,
election-return forgers, aa thieves who had
been rewarded for their peculiar services, but
the following is what might be styled a more
ambitious effort. Doubtless it is yet far
from being complete. Doubtless there are
hundreds of petty criminals, such as manu
facturers or forgers of affidavits, and
manipulators of small election precincts,
who have been shoved into out-of-the-way
places, of whom the nation is as yet ob
livious, but the following enumeration will
answer all purposes. Of course the man
who is indebted to this worthy crowd for
the office he holds, had no object in lifting
them from the mire into places of emolu
ment, of trust, and of power. I was purely
accidental, of course. To believe otherwise
is to believe Mr. Hayes privy in some meas
ure to the frauds of which he is the bene
ficiary, and that will never do. We publish

CAEVER AND BOGAKDUS.
The Champion Rifle and Shotgun Shot* of
the World at the State Fair.
There does not seem to be any linrrt to th
attractions that President Finch and hi co
laborers are preparing for the amusemenfc
and instruction of the thousands of visitors
to the State fair in St. Paul. Under the en
ergetic management the forthcoming exhibit
tion has passed beyond the bonnds of an
ordinary State fair to the broader
and more enlarged arena of a world's
exposition. I is not our purpose at this
time to enumerate the aggregation of at
tractions that have been secured, but
simply to call especial attention to the fact
of the engagement, for the entire fair week,
Dr. W. Carver, of California, the of champion rifle shot of the world, ancl "CaptI
Bogardus, of Illinois, also the world's cham
pion, with his favorite weapon, the shot
The contract with Capt. Bogardus was
made before his departure for England sev
eral weeks since, and where in a match Mon
day last with Capt. Sheltey, of the Notting
Hill Gu club, he killed eighty-four
birds out of 100, the highest score, the cable*
informs ns, ever made in England. I
judging of this feat it Bhould be borne ire
mind that the birds were the blue rock,
faster flyer and more hardy bird than th
American pigeon. Capt. Bogardus will be
accompanied to St. Paul by hia 12-year old
boy, a wonder with the rifle and shotgun.
The arrangements with Dr. Carver were
made yesterday, and, as does that with Capt
Bogardus, include exhibitions every day of
the fair. Dr. Carver, though hailing from
California, is somewhat of a
Minnesotian, from which he
was carried away into captivity during the
Indian uprising of 18G2, and among whom
he is said to have developed some of the re
markable skill as a marksman. Th great
est feat of his life, occurred at the Brooklyn
driving park, June 13, an account of which,
from the Spirit of the Times, we append:
At the Brooklyn driving park, on Saturdav.
June 13, Dr. \V. F. Carver, the wonderful rifle
shot, carried to completion his promised feat
of breaking 5,500 glass balls, with a Winches
ter rifle, in the space of 500 minutes. The task
that Dr. Carver had set himself to accomplish
was considered by many outside of the possi
bilities, and even his friends thought that his
chances were dubious. Not so the man whoso
powers of endurance had carried him more
than once scathless through fire, flood and
field. He determined to accomplish the feat,
and with him to determine was to accomplish.
To more thoroughly appreciate this most won
derful rifle test, it must be remembered
that Dr. Carver, during thin
seven hours and thirty minutes, raised
from his hip to the shoulder nearly 62,000 lbs.,
10 lbs. at each shot, while at each discharge
there va a recoil or blow from the butt of the
guu delivered to his shoulder of nearly 60 lbs.,
872,000 lbs. in the seven hours and a half.
The feat of Capt. Bogardus, who, on Jan.
last, broke 5,000 glass balls in 6h. 18m. 45s., iu
a covered building, and with a double-barrelled
shotgun, must pale before this record of Dr.
Carver's, 5,500 glass balls with a rifle, in tho
open air, in 7h. 38m. 30s., firing 6,211 shots.
The Doctor was as umial dressed in his loose
merino shirt, dark trowsers and slouch hat, and
at 11.01 broke his first ball. The first hundred
were broke 5m. 5s., and then, as a proof of the
tho reliance on his skill, the Doctor remarked to
Col. Fletcher, I guess we are shooting too
fast," allowed more relief to the thrower, and
closed his first 500 in 32m. 20s.,
with only 19 misses. The first
1,000 were broke in lh. Cm. 30s., with 63
misses, the only inconvonience being found in
the eyes of the marksman, which has become
inflamed from the heat of the sun. the fine
particles of glass from the balls, and the spray
from the muzzles and extractors of the rifles,
these latter having been soused in a cold bath
after each magazine was emptied, in order that
the men might handle them. The second thou
sand were obliterated in lb. 24m., with 130
misses, the doctor's eyes, however, still con
tinuing to trouble him, and becoming inflamed
from the constant rubbing of his buckskin
glove. The work was, however, steadily con
tinued until after 2,300 balls were broken,
when rain drove the spectators to the shelter of
the shed, and the doctor bathed his eyes with a
solution of borax water. During the breaking,
of the next 700, his eyes were in a fear
ful state, the pain must have been
excruciating, and they felt like "ball
of fire still ho kept right on, break
ing ball after ball as they were thrown in the
air. After breaking his third thousand, Mr.
Hiram Howe, the owner of the park, drove him
to the hotel, and a needed rest of thirty-two
minutes was taktn, his eyes being freely
bathed and his clothing changed. He returned
to the shooting ground, his eyes in much bet
ter condition, and again commenced the de
struction of the balls, breaking his fourth thou
sand in lb. 22m., with 157 misses. His eye
again became fearfully inflamed, and during
the breaking of the last 1,500, he shot under
most acute pain, but still determined to ac
complish the feat. During the breaking of the
fifth thousand he was greatly encouraged by
repeated rounds of applause from the many
noted riflemen on the ground, while the pres
ence of a number of ladies added zest to his
efforts. The doctor is a ladies' man, and
the tapping of the tiny gloved hands
as the balls were shattered into frag
ments, was received as a grateful tribute to
his pluck and endurance. The breaking of the
lasc 500 balls was carried on amid a succession
of happy commeuts, rounds of applause and
repeated cheers, and when the tally was com
pleted, with 41m. 30s. to spare, arousing three
times three testified to the full appreciation of
the spectators. The doctor was immediately
carried to his room, and remedies applied to
his inflamed eyes. The successful performance
of this most wonderful feat is a still farther
exemplification of American skill in the manu
facture of firearms and American pluck and
science in thoroughly mastering their use. The
test WSR a tremendous one, and has
most fully demonstrated Dr. Car
ver's great ability as a rifleman and his pow
ers of endurance as a scout and hunter, but it
further proves that for ease of manipulation
and endurance in all its parts, the Winchester
repeating rifle has as yet not met its equal.
Two of the six rifles used in this test have been
fired by Dr. Carver at least 25,000 times, and
with these guns he performed his best work on
the 18th, while during the day but one misfire
was noted, and that from dirt in the chamber,
and not from a defect in the cartridge. The
Winchester Arms company must be congratu
lated on its rifles and ammunition.
