Masterly Address of the
Describes the Work of the
Tells of Democratic Efforts to Pre
vent the Adoption of llulcs
and Block Legislation.
Portland, Mo., Sptcmber 4. Speaker
Kecd arrived hero this afternoon. Ho
xcceived ovations at several points along
the road whoro tlio train stopped today.
Tonight ho was welcomed at tho City
Hall by a crowd of 55000 people and
' made nn address devoted to a review of
tho work of the present Houso o( Repre
sentatives. Ho spoko of the threats of tho
minority before tho assembling of Con
gress and tho declarations they
made that thev wcro to rule- in
utter disregard of tho will of tho peo
ple, and of all tho filibustering tactics
thoy wero prepared to employ.

and tho diverso interests they represent
will always mako it slow and cumber
some, but a system which enabled ono
member to hold tho whole House at bay
until tho going down of tho sun and then
hold until physical exhaustion set it
free, and ono ilftli to hold forever, was
evidently a system which rendered elec
tions useless and called a halt to civiliza
"If there be anything in popular gov
ernment it means when tho people havo
elected ono party to take control of tho
House or Senate, that party shall have
both power and responsibility. It was
with far other ideas of public duty tho
minority beset us. At the opening of
the session not only wcro no measures
to pass which did not have their ap
proval, but no rules, even of proceed
ures, were to be permitted except those
which seemed suitable to tho beaten
"So we began without rules. After
two months' opposition wo found that
under parliamentary law, which had
been built up by tho American people
in consonanco with their institutions,
public business was going on every day
without their consent and they began to
clamor for everything nnd tho very rules
they had denounced.
"I need not describo to you the scenes
of disorder prelim inary to tho establish
ment of solid business principles in the
House. It is enough to say good work
was done and the House has taken a
largo stride toward business and tho
performance of its duties. At any time
these past few months I have been sub
ject to much indiscriminate praiso and
much in discriminate blame. One is just
as much deserved as tho other. Great
events do not turn on one man. The
House of Representatives was ready and
ripe for a change and the people stood
ready to approve. What all tho world
wanted was easy to do.
"I am greatly proud to bo Speaker but
I am proud with all my heart to bo ono
of tho magnificent majority of tho Houso
of Reprcsentaties of tho Fifty-first Con
gress which for nine long months has
never for ono moment faltered in its
duty. Wo havo achieved all tho Re
publican party promised and more.
"Wo promised tho people tho tariff
should havo fair and exhaustive treat
ment; that the principle of protection
should have full recognition, and we
havo kept tho promise. By the admin
istrative bill a wise and discriminating
effort has been made to secure to our
manufacturers and merchants complete
benefit of tho rates of duty imposed by
law. Two years ago the Democrats in
tho House admitted to a change in tho
methods of manufacturers, while the
woolen industry was tottering to fall un
less woolens and worsteds wero put upon
a footing of equality. Nevertheless, for
tho purpose o( gaining votes for tlioMills
bill, which could never pass, they sacri
ficed tho woolen industry.
"Without delay and without waiting
to strengthen their own Tariff bill by a
support oi tho worsted men Major iMc
Kinley and Governor Dingley pushed
through a measure of justico which has
rescued so many of our woolen mills
from disaster and ruin. Hut theso bills,
useful as thov are, wcro but forerunners
of tho Tariff bill. Tho McKinley bill
N) was not made in a closet; was not
tho product of ono man who tried to
know everything. If any Tariff bill
was ever tho result of tho beliefs of tho
wholo people of tho United States tho
McKinley bill was that bill.
"Another great achievement of the
Houso is tho Silver bill. Republicans
liromiscd that all tho silver dollars should
ba furnished which could bo kept equal
with gold. Such a bill as fulfilled that
promise to tho uttermost now adorns
our statuto books as a tribute to tho
wiso conservatism of tho Republican
majority of the House. Alrcadv silver
seems to bo climbing to a par with gold
with safety to all interests of tho country.
"There was also another promise to
bo kept, made long ago and often re
newed. For years tho Republican
party has declared most righteously
there could not bo in a Republic a duty
moro sacred than tho duty of upholding
tho right of every citizen to participate
in tho government. Tho House, truo to
its duty, has passed a bill which, when
it becomes a law, will give to tho pco
plo of tho United States tho suffrages of
million". It will enable votes to bo
cast, and bo counted as cast."
Then Mr. Reed continued: "Every
inch of our progress contested by tho
opposition, by tho highway roblery of
time, has been abolished. Petty larceny
of Unas has not only been strong, but
vigorous. We spent two months and a
half in arguing organization in tho pre
liminary struggles to settle tho right of
.riomnnn n.i,'al ll.r. In
tho miijority to control, and in deter
mining tho rules of Houso proceedings.
Wo were forced to spend moro time on
contested elections. Our loss of time
from contested elections will not bo less
than twenty days.
"Ono other cause of loss of time will
boa surprise, perhaps, to tho commu
nity at large. No man would regret
more man I or Do thought wanting in
all proper respect for the dead anil all
proper roverence for departed comrades
and for tho feelings of surviving friends,
yet tho method by which the House
shows this respect and pays this rever
ence is very costily to the nation."
Tho speaker went on to show that by
tho time tho House gets through with
the eulogies of members who havo died
during this session twenty-ono working
days will havo been lost.
He then went on to speak of another
method of obstruction. "Calling tho
roll with 830 members it takes twentv
fivo minutes to mako a roll call.
Whenever the yeas and nayes aro order
ed it means a loss of half an hour. So
far this session wo havo had 400 roll
calls. Three hundred of these havo
been utterly useless, a moro wanton
wasto aiulJSOO roll calls mean twenty-five
legislative days, wasted in a mere use
less calling over of names and all done
to wasto tune with tho public business
"Hut in closing I what havo to say, it
would not bo just to rcsttho claims of tho
House upon tho even catalogue of its
great needs. What tho Houso has
shown the country that any House can
do is worth a princo'a ransom. Hence
forth tho promiso can not bo oxcused by
tho performance. If wo havo broken
tho precedence of a hundred yearn we
havo set precedents for another hun
dred years more nobly than tho last,
wherein tho responsibility will wait on
nower, and wherein tho people with full
knowledge that their servants can act
will choose thoso who will worthily
carry out their will."

Startling Stunting Marie hy Herlin m an
Appeal to Caprlvl for llemoval of tho
lletrIctlon Agalnut American Hoc.
Beklin, September 4. William Wal
ter Phelps, the United States Minister,
was interviewed today regarding Senator
Edmund's meat inspection bill.
Ho said: "Public opinion in Ger
many is doing the work for us as rapidly
as wo could expect. Different German
interests are bombarding Chancellor
Von Caprivi so hotly wo can afford to
wait a little.
"Of tho latest nows is tho startling ap
peal the municipal authorities of Herlin
havo just addressed to tho Chancellor.
From April. 1880, to April, 1890, the
city of Berlin made a gain in population
of 60,000. According to the normal
rate of consumption this incrcaso in
population should causo an increase of
20,000 head in the importation of swine,
but instead of that tho imports have de
creased by 25,000, a loss to Herlin con
sumption of 45,000 a year.
"Matters havo not improved since the
Chancellor has withdrawn the edict ex
cluding Austrian hogs, and now only
Russia and America suffer from this un
just restriction. I expect tho prohibi
tion against Russian swine will soon bo
removed, then our turn will come. In

In the House.
Washington, September 4. In the
Houso this morning Cummings, of New
York, rising to a question of privilege
protested against his blacklisting by the
famous Cannon resolution. He then
proceeded to make an attack upon Can
non and arraigned the speaker and tlio
majority of the Committee on Rules.
Cummings waB frequently interrupted
with points of order. After further
debato the appeal was withdrawn.
Mr. Cannon said, so far as Mr. Cum
mings had roferred to him, ho would say
it was the habit of some persons on tho
other side to impute falsehood against
members on Ids (Cannon's) side. When
lie made a statement of fact it was justi
fied by tho record. Sometimes ho
thought tho censuro of tho gentleman
from New York was praise, and his
praiso really censure.
Mr. Lacoy (Iowa) then called up tho
Breckenridgo election case. Tlio prev
ious question will bo called up at 2
o'clock tomorrow. Mr. MeRao (Arkan

SDNOL AND PALO ALTO
Both Fail to Beat
Marvin Chums the Track
Fifteen Thousand People Turn Out
in Philadelphia to Sec the
Philadelphia, September 4. Fifteen
thousand people were present at Bel
mont Park today to witness the attempt
of Palo Alto and Sunol to lower their
records. Neither tho stallion nor the
mare succeeded, the latter making
2:11, an unfortunate break marring
her performance, and Palo Alto trotting
tho distance in 2:12,!.
Tho trotter, Alfred S, in a match race
with Maggie fl, made a mile to a wagon
in 2:10, coming within a half-second
of Hopeful's wagon record of 2:10.
The racing commenced with a match
race, best two in three, between Alfred
S and Maggie B, .the former being to a
wagon and the latter to harness. The
first heat was won by Alfred S in 2:21.
Moggie B broke badly near tho first
quarter post in the second teat and
Alfred won the heat and race in 2M.
Then Sunol's trial race against time
was called. After scoring once the word
was given and tho fast mare began her
race. She made the quarter in 30 sec
onds, and maintained her speed until
near the half-mile post, when she left her
feet. She settled down again when she
reached tho half-mile post and trotted
tho last half without a skip. She was
joined by a running horse in tho last
half milo, which seemed to help her
She made tho half in 1 :04li, tho three
quarters in 1 :38), and the mile in
2:11. Within a few yards of the wire
Marvin used his whip lightly on Sunol's
shoulder and urged her to go along, and
she evidently did her best. After alight
ing from the sulky Marvin approached
the judges' stand and said lie would not
give the marc another trial. Although
ho did not say so, she was apparently
somewhat tired. A lloral collar was
placed around Sunol's neck, and she
walked back to the stable amid the
cheers of the crowd.
Then the stallion Palo Alto was
brought on tho track. After scoring
three times tho word was given to go.
A running horse joined him at the start
and ran with him to tho finish. He
made the mile in 2:V2, within a quar
ter of a second of his own record with
out a skip. The quartor was made in
o24, half in 105,'C, three-quarters in
1 :38, mile in 2:12,';. Marvin declined
to give him another trial. Palo Alto
was decorated with a floral collar.
Marvin said the track was a trifle
heavy and what wind thero was operated
to his disadvantage. Marvin also said
ho find calculated to make the half mile
with Sunol in 1:03, which ho would
have done but for the unfortunate
The opinion was expressed by many
experts present that the mare was
driven oil her feet and that had she
been held to a little slower time on the
first half she would have done tho mile
in 2:10 or better.
Many thought also that Falo Alto
should havo been given another trial.
Fred Bonner said today his fathor had
almost decided to leave Sunol in
Marvin's charge another year. The
present contract calls for delivery of
tho maro to Bonner in November next.
If Marvin retains charge of her she
will bo taken back to California this
Palo Alto and Sunal will probably be
taken to Cincinnati on Saturday next,
where they will trot exhibition miles.

New Yoiik, September 4.-110 firm
of Sawyer, Wallace & Co., exporters of
breadstuff's and cotton and dealers in leaf
tobacco, created great surprise in busi
ness circ les today by making an assign
ment to Marshal Avres. The firm was
estimated to be worth about $1,250,000,
above all liabilities. They were prompt
in paying for local purchases and re
sponded promptly also when called upon
to margin their contracts.
A short time ago Miller made a state
ment to tho effect that the firm was
worth more than $ 1,500,000, that their
liabilities were merely nominal and that
they did a commission business.
When the announcement of their fail
ure was made today, a rumor gained cir
culation to the effect that tho firm was
speculating largely of late in cotton and
the market had cone against them. It
was also said that the firm had been
speculating in grain and lost heavily. It
is believed that the linn naa pretty wen
protected their interest in this country.
and their chief losses, which they think
will reacli ?l,r00,000, will be in London
and mainly on their trust pork dealings.
A statement of liabilities and assets will
be made as soon as possible.
The houses on Wall street say tho
cause of the failure was the result of
efforts made by the firm to squelch
competition in commercial business by
doing a commission business with
European speculators without a margin
and on a small commission. In a pork
deal last January it was said to have

It was expected that the Eureka Silk

Washington, September 4. A com
munication from the Oswego Board of
Trade, contradicting the statement of
the Secretary of Agriculture on the sub
ject of the production of barley was
presented in the senate today by Evarts
and 500 copies ordered printed for dis
tributing. Rusk's statement was that barley is
the only cereal of which there is not
raised a sufficiency for homo consumtion.
The denial is to the effect that the an
nual production of the United States
is about 00,000,000 bushels, of which
this country used last year for malting
purposes less than 45,000,000. Ten
million bushels wero imported from
