MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL FIIIDAY. APIUL 2, 18S6.
FORTY -MINI CONGRESS.
VIE LABOR DISCCSSION IN THE
Tk Qamtioa Discussed Id 111 Its
Bearings Proceeding's la
"Washikotom, April 1. Mr. Kelley
Fa., rising 'o a question of privilege,
aid that he found Jn the Record ths
BiorniDKtha the gentleman from Mis
Boari (O'Ntill) yesterday had stated
sbathe(Kelley) bad made a speech 01
the bill prohibiting the importa'ioi of
contract labor identical with tt-a". he
Biade so the arbitration bill. Be had
sot heaid that statement, and he did
not wish by silence to acqsieice in its
correctness. He supported the con
tract Ia"jor bill, bnt he bad declared it
to be crude and had suggested amend
men Is to perfect it. That bill could
fee amendtd, bat the bill of the gentle
man from Missouri meant notbiug and
axrold ro". have life brca'.hed into it.
The House then went into commit
tee of the wnole (Mr. Springer III.
in the chair) on the labor arbitration
bill, general debate to be closed at 4
Mr.Gibean W. Va criticise.! the
bill, becanse be contended that it ao
omplished nothing, and he advoiated
the postage of au interstate commerce
bill with a compulsory provii'on re
quiring the commistioners appointed
ander it to take hold of all controver
sies arising between capital and labor
and eo'.tle them in the interest of the
public and in behalf of the country.
The pending measure bad been hasti-
S drawn and should not be forctd
rough the House. What wai tt e
cause of this panic? Was it that ia'l
road attorneys were seeking tome ad
vantage for their roads, or that some
men were attempting to scure popu-
- larity among the masses? Toe hill
should be recommitted for careful con
sideration, and at the proper time he
would make a motion lo that end.
Mr. Grain Tex , a member of the
Committee on Lay or, dt fended the
bill against the adverse citicism, a ad
argued in support of its constitution
ality. Tbe gtn'leman from Virginia
(Mr. Daniel) had said this bill would
- cost the country too much. If it bad
cost the government $1,000,000 to hay
prevented the lats strike tbe country
would not have suffered, because the
result bad been paia yeis of trade, the
avennrs of commerce bed been ob
structed, business had become stag
nant, and thousands of men mt
connected with tbe Knights of Labor
had been thrown out of employment
The evil to be remedied was not an
evil which ai ose between laboii og men
and railway tympanies primarily, but
an evil in which the masses of the
people were interested. They were
the men who were the sufferers. It
was better tor the country to py out
a million dollars in taxation for the
purpose of providing arbitration than
to have the country in the condition
in which it had been during the la t
lew weeks, whereby there bad been a
loss to the country of over $30,000,000.
Then turning to Mr. Reagan's consti
tutional argument againet the bill, Mr.
Grain proceeded to answer the points
raised by it, and asserted tbat if tbe
Reagan interstate commerce bill wae
constitutional, the pending bill wa
Mr. Worthiugton III. thought that
the Cciamittee on Labor, with the
limited jurisdiction Congress had iver
the subject, had done about ft 11 it
tould do. He was disposed to vote for
tbe bill, but could not but fetl there
was a possib.lity it would go out to
the world a legislative nondescript,
which bore on its face an apology for
its own existence.
Mr. Tousney Mich., a member of
the Committee on Labor, defended the
bill, which appealed to the highest
arbiter there was la the land to pub
lic opinion and publio judgment.
Mr. Andtrdon Kas.J said that the
labor question in its broad sense was
not th9 real question at issue, but tbat
the real question pressing CongresB
was whether legislation should be en
acted to compel common carriers to
perform thpir obligations. The great
problem to be solved was the protec
tion of the people during tke great
struggles between capital and labor.
His opposition ti the bill was, that it
was purely a temporary measure. It
would be wiser to appoint a national
eommla&ion clothed with national au
thority, silting permanently, studying
all tbe factors ol the prob'ein suegnst
ing legirhtion, bo tbat hereafter C n
grees might be better able to act than
now because of ignorance of those
Mr. Wp.rner Mo congratulated tbe
Committee on Labor that amid ex
citement, when gentlemen were anx
ious to rush to the fjrefront of battle
as the champion of labor, it had
brought in a sensible and conservative
measure as the one under considera
tion. Mr. Oibarn Pa. gave tbe bill his
Mr. long Mas. favored the bill
and Mr. Bound Pa. advocated its
Mr. Cannon II'. earnestly cup
ported the bill, and thought that it
would be effective of much good. He
doubted whether it) provisions could
be made strong under the constitu
tion. In tlosing the debate Mr. O'Neil
Mo. sud that every compulsory law
placed ou tbe statue books of tny
country bad proven a failure. The
desired mult could only be secured
r by conciliation. When public opin
ion was behind a measure it was
powerful. He quoted from views of
political economis e, which bad been
considered by the Committee on
Labor, and which uphold the princi
ples of corciliation and arbitration,
and at the conclusion of his remarks
the bi 1 was read by sections for
In speaking to a verbal amendment
Mr. Hammond Ga. attacked the bill,
whicb, he asserted, mtttad of biing a
bill to project labor wis one to prevent
the strikes in the interest of thecorpo
rations and at the expense of the
United Bites. Every mtn who be
lieved as the gentleman from Pennsyl
vania (Mr. Kelly) did. tht the meas
ure was a trick and fraud, ought tt
vote against it. The House proposed
to crystalim into tUtu'e law some
thing which nobely said was good
and many people said was a sin pie
trick to get rid of tbe question.
Mr. Kelly Pa. fa d that by his re
marks yestnrday be did not msan tbat
the gentlemen on the Committee on
Labor had deliberate? perpetrated a
trick and a fraud. 'He knew that
gentlemen who could submit this bill
to the woriingmen cf the count y ss
a provision for the speedy stt'.lemen
of troubles between employers a&d
employes were quite too innocent to
ds l.berattlv attempt a fraud or a trick
Laughter. Mr. Powderly hal done
more to advance tbe principle of arbi
tration tiian any frothy eloquence that
be (Mr. Kelly) aid bis aatociaies bad
nth red yesterday and to-day. Mr.
PowjiBrlj'a paper had been read and
oce'dered by the heads of corpora-
iomsand they had a:d, "If this is
the spirit o' workicgmi-n we mast re

Ke l)bid decoawed as fiaids and
tricks jn.it euch bills as this, which
p'eruutd to b in tbe interest of
workingmen, bat which were net ol
any p a t al benefit to them. He
had seen to many frauds and tricks
perpetrated on workingmen that he

cent members cf the Committee on
The committee then row, and Mr.
O'Neil moved that all debate on the
first stction be limited to one minute.
By a p- rliamentary manenvre, Mr.
Reagan Tex j obtained tfce flxr and
made a c institutional aigument
against the bill.
Mr. Lowry Ind. denied emphatic
ally the aseer ion that the bill was
a trick and a fraud that infr nzed
upon any provision of the constitu
tion. He concervd that the commit
tee bad proceeded with tbe utmost
rauticn audiircumepe't on in fiaming
the measure. Tbe tffeut if the bill
wou d be to crystalin publio opinion.
In his judgment, as tu-e ai truth was
omnipotent, just so sura would cor
poraie bodies be tompsllsd to y eld to
the demands of jutt cs and r'ght It
ws a ttp in tbe right direction; it
was in response to the cry of distress;
it was a su p ahoy to sinking tailors.
Let Congress put this tign in tbe
beavens aa a to ten to labor that it
would net a'ways bs distrersed, and
tnat it wouid not always be su', ject to
tbe exactiors of monopo'y.
Pending a vote on Mr. O'Neil's mo

Shortly after the rpning of the Sen

on the Library, repcr:ed favorably a

honor to intrnduie this bill. It appr
priated 1500,000 for tbe erection of a
monument at Washington to the mem

Cullom said, would not dim nor lessen
the glory tbet cluttered around tbe

name and fame would exist for all

Senator Piatt made a few remarks
in reference to tbe resolution some
time since introduced by him, provid
ing for tbe considers ien cf executive
businees in open session. ( This reso
lution baa been adversely reported by
the Committee on R'llee). Senate r
Piatt remarked tbat as a point of order
might be made on the reeo'ution that
it changed a roW without due notice,
ha would on Monday next propose an
amendment to the resolution specify

At tbe suggestion of Senator Logan

Among the many stories Lincoln
used to relnte wna the following:
Trudging along a lonely road one
morning on my way to the county
seat, Judge overtook me with
his wagon and invited me to a spat.
We had not gone far beforo the
wagon began to wobblo. Said I,
"Judge, I think your coachman has
taken a drop too much."
Putting his head out of the window
the judge shouted: "Why, you in
fernal scoundrel, you aro.drunkl"
Turning round with great gravity,
the coachman said: "Be dad! but
that's the firs' rightful s'cision your
Honor's giv'n 'n twe 'montl"
If people knew the facts they would
be surprised to learn how many peo
ple reel in tie streets who never
"drink a drop." They are the victims
of sleeplessness, of drowsy days, of
apoplectic tendencies, whose blood is
set on fire by uric acid. Some day
they will reel no more they will
drop dead, just because they haven't
the moral courage to defy useless pro
fessional attendance, and by use of
the wonderful Warner's safe cure
neutralize the uric acid in the system
and thus get rid of the "drunkness in
the blood." The American Rural

A SCANDALOUS 6TOBY.
The daily New to-day demands cf
the sovtrnmtnt an explanation of the
statement printed in New York tbat
British contractors and omcsra are in
tens ed fioaucially in construction of
the new vessels to be built for the
American navy. Tbe New bases its
demand on an editorial in the few
York Nautical Gazette, March 6ta. This
bore the caption "Dargnous Naval
Talect," and contained among other
things a statement tbat the new
American cruisers are to be deslgccd
by a syndicate cf whom Sir N. Barns
by, ex-chief constructor of the Br.tisb
navy, Mr. White, the rreient chief
conetructor and tbe firm of Mr William
Armstrong A Co. are principal mem
bers. Tbe article admits tbat the
gentlemen named have acceeetavatt
stores of information collected in
Great Britain, but warrs tbe United
States government agaicBt entruttirg
ihs work of rehabilitating the Ameri
can navy to a syndicate controlled by
Englishmen. The New "o-day pruts
thear iclein full, with the heading,
"A Scandalous Story," and insists that
it should be officially explained. Mr.
White and Messrs. Armstrong & Co.
were visited to-day and asked if they
bad any statement shout tbe a ory to
make publio. Mr. Whits la'd: "The
whole story is a lie so far as I am con
cerned. I have ritten to the New
denying the entire allegation." Sir
William Armstrong makes a similar
STORMY ALL BOUND.
After the Cabinet council had ad
journed this alterLOoa tbe Minieters
were hastily summoned to snuhtr
meeting held in Mr. Gladstone's room
in the Mouse of Commons. This sec
ond meeting was said to have been
called because of the receipt of serious
news from Bulgaria and Greece. Or
ders bave been received at Drvonpoit
to have all tbe torpelo vessels there
in readiness for s at the shortest
notice. The Pall Mall Ga$,tte, sum
ming up the situation in Eastern Eu
rope, says: "Prince Alexander of Bul
garia is obstinate, and ills government
of Greece is likewise; the Turks are
undecided, and tbe powers are un

tbat M. Kitties, tbe Ruseophils, has
taken office in Ssrvia bodes ill for

Polyphemus is fitting out hastily at

ly what ws have demanded for tne last
four years in our annunl conventions.
Adhering to our declared purpose to
keep the movement disentangled from
pa ty politics, we baveappra'ed to the
ievilaiora without regard ti polit
ical creed to give to the sov
ereign people tbe privilege of de
termining by coon tits whether
or not tbe matchless evil of the
age shall be tolerated in their midit.
Our appeal has been herr 1, and such
a law has been enacted. Upon appli
cation by petition signed by one-tenth
ol the qualified voters cf any county
in tbe btate, tbe Board of Supervisors
shall order an election to tke place

whether or not any alcoholic, spirit
uous, vinous, malt or iot Hunting
liquors or Miters st a' I be sold in said
county. Tbis election iannot take
place aithin two months tf any gen
eral ele t on. By this provs on tbe
quettion is eliminated from any
county or S ate nolitkal conies'. If a
county, by majoii'y lo'e, declares in
favor of the sale, then be'ors l;rnia
to retail ran bs granted to any appli
cant within an incorporated town or
supervisor's district he must present a
petition signed by twenty five owners
of rtal settle wit ojn such municipality
or district. The petition rnuet be
filed and lie over for thirty
days to await counter-petitions.
If within tbat time a counter
petition, signed by a majority of the
qualified voters of aaid incorporated
town or supervisor's district be pre
sented, then license shall not bs grant
ed. That provision ia eminently wis,
and, whatever the result of the county
election, will ol necessity secuie the
protection of probibi ion to a hrga
msjerity of the towns within the Sute.
AU places now under speclvl prohib
itory laws, wlers chartered Uianu'as
toriesaud iostitntious of lesrniDg are
located, will remaia uudis'ii'bcd by
tbis general lew.
This, friends of prohibition, is oar
position to-dafj we have eleven en
tire coo a ties in which ths sale of
liquor is prol lbltsd. In not oue of
those coontiei ran a saloon be opened
nntil a major ty of tbe lejal voters at
the ballot-box shall give their permis
sion. With ' hs growth of moral sen
timent in ca1 1 counties, educated and
strengthened by the workintiof a pro
hibitory law, we expect to hold every
one of them firmly in the advancing
column of refcrm. We (tart out
afresh In the conflict with eleven coun
ties and a number of college and man
ufacturing towns already secured. Tbe
next few months will witness other
victories, as ona county after another
shall express its convictions at the
polls. To fcsue is sharply defined.
Personalities are eliminated, and the
one question for the people to decide
is, wtiisky or no whisky. In BU' h a
cont it is ft dllflcult to forecast what
the peoplft of Mississ'ppi will doT On
which side th line of public morels
will they i-tand?
Our friends are mu t'p'ying and tbe
weak are incoming strong. The little
company of a few years avo has be
come a grent army. Statesmen atd
political leaden have heard the distant
thunder ot the trampling hosts. We
are no longer derided and denounced
as fanatics and inquisitors, except by
acertiin ignorant stripe and stamp,
and the principles on wh eh ws stsnd
are recognise i as fundamental, and
righteous as toa throne of God. Pro
hibition la t)is watchword cf moral
reform. Around it publio opinion is
steadily crystalliziug. Communitioi
and shadowed homes claim this as
tbeir surest protsction.
Tbe fo lowing suggestions are made
to our friends in tbs several counties:
First Do not bring on tbe content
precipitately. Develop and organise
a sentiment before the issue is joined.
Arrange for a vigorous, vigilant, aggres
sive campaign. '
Second Perfect your organisations
in each county. Let there be well
selected county executive commit
tees, with a representative from each
school district. Appoint no man to
compliment him, but because of bis
force and fitness. Invite the co-operation
of the Woman's Christian Tem
perance Union, With their unions
organised in eaoh neighborhood we
will hava efficient eo-'ahorers.
Third Avoid pe aonsl r political
contioversies. We have no enemies
to punish. Our mist-ion is to win
friends and shield the si r owing. Lei
nothing discount tbu purity of our
purpose, or beguile ut f rum our ouly
and holy mission. We hid moral re
formers, and pot regulators or po itical
Fourth Sow down esi h county with
wholesome temperance literature.
Thus we will educate mind and con
science. We must induce the peopls
to think in order to get them to intelli
gently act. Agitation begets consid
eration, and that is tbe life of real re
form. Fifth Let special attention be given
toward assisting the colored people in
their temperance oiganiz.t ons. We
needthtir hearty co-operation; their
Buffering condit oa appniilb to our pa
triotic consideration. WhiBky is the
greatest enemy to thmr elevation.
Tbev can never be ful y eiiiancipst'd
U'.tii every open saloon is hermetically
sealed. Their church organizations
hsve spoken with co uncertain sound.
In the great roatest at Allan's a ma
jority cf the colored people voted for
prohibition. Alike b.ynlty t their
church vowh we n ay expect in Mirsis
sippl. It wdl be an honor to the rce
late'y eufranchiatd if by their ballots
they shall wave ti e fligof freedom
over the empiie of rum and ruin,
. Friends ol'temperancs reform, ours
is a great opportunity. We bave
"come to the kingdom for such a time
as this." And tbis opportunity is the
measure of our responsibility. Every
friend of freedom must be up and do
ing. Mo soldier can afford to slumber
on his po?t If tbe contest in each
county is managed discreetly there is
lnt e doubt but that three-fourths of
them will dec are for prohibition
within the next eighteen months.
There mutt be no divided count els.
L't tbe tanks close up and every com
rade prove a hro.
