rOWDBHLT's LITTII to ttrnir.
The letter of General Master Work
man Poarierly to Secretary Turner is
said by i Le ExecotiTe Committee to
b the result of an uranimotu demand
npon him by the assemblies of the
order to place the ctrike on a broad
basia the tupport ot th entire organ
isation by formal circular. Since the
arrival tf the Genera! Committee con
tributions runtiing np to thousands of
dollars have It en ncrlved every day
by them, and fur the last week they
have averaged over $2000 a day. All
this money haa been sent out to bs
difttributi among the strikers at every
point oo the system where it is needed,
and it has been eoflicient to meet all
demands bo far without calling upon
the reserve fund of the order or order
ing an asseosment. Dut Mr. Powderly's
direction for a c ill fur contributions
meets with the approval of the board,
because it will prove to ilits public
that the strike Las the indorsement tf
the order in general.
"I suppose a'tsr this that no more
w ll be raid about Mr. PowJcrlv'g net
sympathising with the strike," said
Committeeman Hayes yesterday, after
reading the Powderly lot'er.
Tbe eircu'ar will bring In two days
IIO.O.'O to the Kxecutive Committee,
who will receive the money, and con
tributions will keep on rolling in aa
long ai we want them. Weiaadiaw
from the reserve fund now in sums of
f 10,030, $15,000 or $20,000, as we need
It, and pay It back from the contribu
tions. I think it will hardly cost ui
more than flOO.OCO to cairr tbe strike
until it end, bnt we'll spend every cent
that fa neceessry."
"Howls your money spent?"
"it goee directly to the strikers
through their assemblies. The rent
and board of the aingle man is paid
and tbe men with families are paid
wnat tney need lor clothing, rent ana
g'Oieries. The money ii famished
them directly in some can's ana in
others their bills are paid."
"How do you heln those who are
not Knights of Labor?"
"In the same way. It makes no
difference whether or net they are
thts of Liber, if they are out with

Milwaukee, Wis, April 15. The
lergect strike ever known in Milwau
kee has been inaugurated hy the Shop
Tailors' Union. Over 4000 operatives
are affected, although a large minority
of these have no interest in the strike
and are, in fact, opposed to it. Tbe
strike is to secure the adoption of a
tew seals of prices, mention of which
was made in these dispatches. All the
wholesale establishment in the city
are affected by the strike. Outside of
the members of tha Shop Tailois
Union is a largs number of single
ba'ida, mm and women, who take
work diiect from the whulwale deal
ers. This claw, it la claimed, make on
an average more money than the shop
workmen, and is therefore not In sym

quit work, however, from fear of vio

seems, si far as ca i ba learned by in

no likelihood of any compromise, and

Oolvmiua, April 12. It is seldom
(hat this city can boast of anything of
a particularly romantio nature, but
the facta about to he stated seem to
print very strongly ti something of a
romantic character. In a recent pub
lication of a newapaper at Great
Ceraa, UrmJ Puchy of Hewee, the
following paragraph occurs: "Regard
ing the la'e Banker fctiegllts, who
died some time ago in 8r, Petersburg,
leaving a coloa-a! fortune, it is now
eurmised that he hailed from our
vicinity; at lea t, it has been ascer.
tainori that in 1N13 a young fellow
from Berkach named Stirgtitz, and
aged BevonttoQ vcirs. went off with
the Russian toldiers, and nothing has
been heard nt him since' Manv
years ago a German named Btieglita
cane to Coin mbia and opened a bakery.
This btker told his wife and child of
an uncle of his who had gone to St.
Petersburg with the Russians, and that
he was then a biuker in that city. A
cor.ieapatidence wai opened Between
the Columbia baker and the St. Peters

MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL FRIDAY, APRIL 1G. 18SC.
THE BITER AMD HARBOR BILL
I!f THE HOUSE.
The Subject of Open Executive Ses
sions Farther-Considered by
Wabbington, April 15. .SnrnU.
Senator Logan took the tUxtr in sup
port of the movement for open execu
tive sessions, lie preferred Ins own
resolution, he said, because it pro
vided broadly for open sessions on all
matters of nomination and confirma
tion without going into the history of
secret sessions, senators were ressm
sible to tho people, and should let the
people know wnat they are doing,
Senator Logan hoped the Senators
who favored secret sessions would be
heard from in this debate. The talk
ing should not be all one side in the
discussion. Those who believed in
secret sessions should openly state
their grounds for that belief. He
(Senator Logan) would like to hear
those grounds. Let the doors be
opened and- let " Sanatoria' courtesy "
give place to fair and open considera
tion. The traducer of character and
the condoner of bad records would
both go down before the oiien consid-
oniuuu ui ijuiiuiiniiuiin. uie ireiu:ii
erous stiletto would give place to open
and manly warfare. The man who
with crooked record wanted public
oflice would then have to seek other
channels than the Semite. In
a people's government why should
not the people know the reasons
for our consent, which meant the peo
ple's respect, to a nomination. Secret
sessions were demoralizing. Was
there one Senator who would hesitate
to frankly tell the truth toa mmi if he
was opposed toliim? Senator Iignn
had rniown cases in which men be
lieved they would be confirmed, and
had good grounds for their lielief, yet
were rejected. He (Senutor Logan)
would not suy that Senators had told
such men untruths. The secrets f
executive sessions were let out in
some way, lie would not say how cor
rectly. Was there ever an executive
session to consider an important mat
ter from which something hail not
leaked out? He acipiitted the oilicers
of the Senate of any fault in this mat
ter. He did not believo they let the
secrets out. Still the newspujHTs were
full of statements of things that hap
pened, or were said to hnpien, in ex
ecutive sessions. Ii they did not
make correct statements they pro
posed to do so. If the Senate would
not open its doors, was it not encour
aging deception on the part of news
papers? Was it not better to have
the country know exactly what the
Senate waa doing. The newspaper
men did tho best they could.
They got the "secrete" from
somebody. . Senator Ixgan did
not know from whom. Probably
from the spittoons or the desks of the
Senate chamber -of course not from
any Senator. Were not SenutorH en
couraging newspaper men to Htate
things that were not true. The Sen
ate . was not directly responsible for
uny incorrect statements aa to secre'
sessions. If the doors were opened
the speeches in executive sessions
would be shorter, the proceedings
more orderly and the debates better
and of a moro elevated character. As
to the publicity of votes. Kenntnr li.
gnn was perfectly willing that his
constituents and everybody else
should know how he voted in execu
tive session, and if he dared he would
tell every day what his voto was, but
ho never did. The power of public
opinion was rising on this subject, he
aid. The people felt that they must
and should know what Senators were
doing. Kvery where in his country
the principle of growth was recog
nized except in the United States Son
ate. That prineiplo was coming to
be recognized everywhere throughout
the world. The principle of liberty
is spreading. Take the case of Ire
land, si long trodden and tram
pled under foot. Why whs it
that the grandest statesman that Eng
la"d had produced was struggling in
behalf of long-sufibritig Ireland. It
wos because of the growth of the prin
ciple of liberty of the principled fair
dealing. Education and reflection
were lighting np the minds of all peo
ple in this country, too. Tho people
were getting more enligh tened anil
advanced views of their righte We
should hear in mind that there wero
but two ways of righting wronus.
Those ways were reformation anil
revolution. Ilo (Senator Urgnn) pre
ferred reformation. lxt Senators have
done with childishness, and put on
the garb of men ; it seemed to bring
great joy to some Senators' souls to see
the galleries cleared and the people
turned out us if ionic great mysterious
thing waa to bo done in the SennUi
when the doors were closed - us if tho
Semate was in some way to become a
iiuiL'icinii and turn bUcks into sunken.
or do sonio eiiuiilly incomprehensible
thing Tho whole thing waa an abso
lute farce. ' There was nothing that
occurred in executive session that
could not with perfect propriety oi-cur
in open session not one tlnrg. Srcret
sessions gave some S nators opportu
nities to talk one way in secret and
another in the open Senate. .
Senator Hoar, alluding to a mention
by Senator Logan of tho proceenlings
of eonimittois, asked Senator Logan
whether his logic would not r quire
the p'oncedings of committees alno to
be open to the public.
Senator L san replied: "Not at all ;
but why should not cotimittoe meet
ings be open to the public if anybody
wanted tnem to be?"
Senator Hour said that hardly anv
proceedings wero of more importance
or public interest than tho proceedings
of the C'lnm ttee on Wavs and
Means of the House of Representa
tives, or the Finance Committee of
the Senate1, and especially important
were the proccedincs of conference
committees on que-st ions of re venue.
fMnutor lloar asked Semator Loiran
whet ' er he would have the prweed-ii4-s
of such committees open to the
Senator Logan said that, knowimr
the astuteness of tho Senator from
Massachu etts (Senator Hoar) in at
tern i ts to th-ow people on the track
in debate whenever tho proposition
mode d d not exactly agree w th his
notion, but the Semite was not dis
cussing the question of open commit
tee meeting. The people were not
domamling open comm t ee meetings,
bur they weie demanding open doors
for the proceedings of the Senate. "And
the doors will lie oHned," Senator
lxtgan poinhdly odded, "mark what
I tell you ; and it won't be 'ong, either.
You gentlemen may revel in the dark
for awhile over " nominations. It
seeme i to charm Senators," he con
tinued, "to have some knowledge
that they would not give to the people.
It denied to please them when anked
by a citizen how they voted on the
confirmation of a village postmaster
to be able to reply, with an air of
mystery, "Oh, 1-1-1 cannot tell
you; 1 am bound to secrecy." What
an important mutter it was, how any
Senator voted on such a matter. This
reform, Senator Logan continued, was
growing. The people of this country
would run the country. All forms of
opfiosition would have to cease, in
cluding that which prevented men
from expressing their wills at the
pedis. Senator Loran alluded to the
Knglish House of Lords, and advised
the Se-nate to pattern no longer after
that body a body of hereditary privi
U'ge's and power. He advised Sena
tors to stop their StarChamber pro
ceedings. "Le-t not the representa
tives of tV e people," he said, "imag
ine that the-y are higher or better
than the people, or that they had any
secrets of state that could not or
should not le imparted to the people."
Senator Piatt said he would have
asked for a vote on his resolution
now, but that he understood some
other Senators wished to be heard on
it. He would, however, ask the Sen
ate to vote on it oa early as possible.
Senator Riddleberger, in withdraw
ing the substitute ofiured by him for
the open executive sessions resolu
tions, said he had offered it in the be
lief that a two-thirds vote was neces
sary to pass the resolution for which
he intended his resolution to be a sub
stitute. Finding that the present form
of the resolution would require only a
majority vote, he would withdraw the
substitute. He said he would call up
the matter eve y morning till it was
disposed of He did not propose that
it should be allowed to die out. As
to how the secrete of executive ses
sions got out, Senator Hidillcberger
said if he were ermitted to guess he
could tell. "I have a private secre
tary, for instance," said Senator Rid
dleuexiier, "andjl consider him partic
ularly private. I walk down the ave
nue with him and he asks mo a ques
tion or two, and, being smarter than I
am, he knows more in rive minutes
than I will learn in u week. Then he
gives it to somebody else;, and the
whole newspaper fraternity get it. My
observation is that if you would un
dertake to exchange intelligence, the
newspaper men would have the best
of this Senate1 hy a large majority.
That is the way the secrets get
out." Tho newspnper fraternity, he
added, like religious associa
tions and other organizations
had some bad men, and they some
times misrepresented. He instanced
a recent case in which, he said, the
newspapers had taken the facte aa
other papers had them and reversed
the statement, putting his (Senator
Riddleberger's) name where the name
of the other man had been. The
newspapers, he said, would not have
dared to do that if open sessions were
permitted. In open sessions Kenators
addressed themselves to the country
and not to the smoking congregation
of this body. The course of the Sen
ators in making secret session charges
against men nominated for oflice
smacked smartly of cowardice.
The pension bill was placed before
the Senate, but the hour of 2 o'clock
arrived before its reading waa con
cluded, and the Senate took up the

Mr. Willis Ky. briefly reviewed
and expla ned tbe provisions of the
bill, which, he contended, called for
to approoihtion which was not de

measure would show that the rivers
and harbors enumerated in it were
worthy of improvement and were of
Mr. Anderson Ka, while favoring
the improvement of livera aa one
means of securing cheap transporta
tion, criticised various items of tbe

Mr. Hepburn la. charactsrired
some of the appropriations as a prodi
gal, wasteful thiowing away of the
people's money. He especially op
posed the Galveston harbor appropria
tion on the ground that the plan for
the improvement of that harbor had
been shown to be defective. He also
criticised the appropriation for the
lower Mississippi river. lie would
like to see the navigation of that river
improved but be had no faith in the
pretense that it wai for tbe improve

penditures were made. Strike eat of
