THE POLITICAL POT.
Autocrat Seed in the Cradle
He Tells How the Surplus Has
Been Blown In.
•Congressional Delegates Assembling
The Three Candidates on the Ground and
All Feeling Hopeful—Elections
Associated Press Dispatches. |
Boston, Sept. 3. —Speaker Reed
addressed a large audience tonight at
Fanueil hall. In the course of his speech
he said in parj: "It is amazing to
notice the history of the house of repre
sentatives and congress, to see how in
detail is carried out this principle—that
when things are to be done, tlie Repub
lican party does tHem. The great strug
gle which has been made by the Demo
cratic house of representatives for years
has been not to be economical in the
expenditures of the government but to
cut down the sum total of the appropria
tions. They have been striving in every
way to pile up a surplus, not merely by
taxation, but by parsimony in their
action in the expenditure of money. So
long as they could point to the clogging
of business which results from the stor
ing of money in the treasury, they
seemed happy, but now they are busily
engaged in showing that the surplus
has disappeared. They are unable to be
contented, either with a surplus or with
out one. There is no doubt that the
expenditures of the government are
about to approach the receipts, but any
man would make a mistake if he be
lieved it was in any way the result of
extravagance or carelessness with the
public money. There have been adver
tisements made broadcast of this sur
plus, and every human need and en
deavor have been set together to try to
get money out of the treasury for
other than public purposes, but
not one of these schemes has been suc
cessful. All the expenditures have been
legitimate and proper. We shall
expend nearly our income. "We shall
also reduce taxation to the extant of
$50,000,000 in addition thereto. One
great element of expenditure is Indian
legislation, which is not understood in
New England, and its character is not
fully appreciated. With us, the soldier
is comparatively content with what is
promised him in the near future. But
in the west there exists a different
feeling. These stories about the last sur
plus have set men wild with the idea of
a service pension which would bring
emoluments to every man in tlie service.
We have had to meet, not merely the
contention of those who are parsimo
nious and not willing to do what was
fair to the soldier, but of those who
wished to do such things as with the
present revenues of the government are
impossible without bankruptcy and
ruin. The Republican party grapples
with the question and solves it with that
measure of justice which is satisfactory
to the whole people of the country. So
we have met all such questions."

A prominent treasury official said to
day that while the statement of the
public debt for August showed a de
crease of only $833,073, it was also true
that the bonded debt had been reduced
$19,847,200 during the same period by
the purchase of bonds.
The silver offerings to the treasury
department today amounted to 2,003
--500 ounces. The amount purchased
was as follows: 100,000 ounces at
$1.10^; 200,000 ounces at $1.10.
Secretary Windom and the director of
the mint had a conversation this after
noon regarding the silver law, one of the
results of which was the decision that
the department will purchase 4,500,000
ounces each month, reckoning from the
date when the law took*effect. This
action accounts for the comparatively
light purchases today, as the total pur
chases since the 13th ultimo amount to
within 250,000 ounces of the monthly
quota, with ten days remaining within
which to complete it.

The Secretary of Agriculture Tripped
Up on Barley Statistics.
Washington, Sept. 3. —A communica
tion from the Oswego board of trade,
contradicting the statement of the sec
retary of agriculture on the subject of
the production of barley, was presented
in the senate today by Evarts. Five
hundred copies were ordered printed for
distribution. Rusk's statement was that
barley was the only cereal of which there
is not raised a sufficiency for home con
sumption. The denial is to the effect
that the annual production of the
United States is about 00,000,000 bush
els. The country used last year for
malting purposes less than 45,000,000
bushels; 10,000,000 bushels were im

IN A STATE OF CHAOS
Chicago Carpenters' Strike
Many of the Men Have Gone
Back to Work.
The Radical Element of the Strikers
The New York Central Investigation—!
Southern Pacific Company's Strike
Associated Press Dispatches.!
Chicago, Sept. 3.—A1l but 700 of the
striking carpenters who refused to go to
work Tuesday morning, are now at
work. There is confusion and chaos
among the members of the carpenters
council, over the action of the strike
committee in authorizing tbe return to
work of carpenters who were receiving
37,'.-s cents an hour. This action is criti
cised by the strikers, who say the com
mittee exceeded authority. President
James O'Connell, of the carpenters
council, has resigned because of the dis
content of the members of that organi
zation. The employers assert that they
have all the men they want.
The trouble in the union arose from
the discontent of the radicals with the
action of the council allowing the men to
go to work for such bosses as accepted
the union conditions. The radicals in
sisted on an all around strike, while the
conservatives, who are in the majority,
argued that their plan was best, and
that it could be followed by a general
strike next spring if necessary to
bring the remaining bosses into line.
President O'Connell, of the council,
was also president of Union No. 1, and
when attacked by the radicals last
night, resigned that position and today
resigned the presidency of the council.
Notwithstanding the fact that Union
No. 1 sent new and radical delegates
into the council, the conservative policy
was again endorsed this afternoon.
THE CENTRAL STRIKE.
Interesting Testimony Developed by the
New York, Sept. 3. —Before the state
board of arbitration today, General
Manager Toucey of the New York
Central testified . that Master
Workman Lee, before the strike, a.
luded to the watering of the cornpuny's
stock, and intimated that some one was
making a good deal of money, and he
said the men ought to have some of it.
Master Mechanic Buchanan testified
that he discharged Lee by order of Vice-
President Webb. He had no personal
knowledge of the cause. Of the seventy
eight men discharged he knew
the causes in the cases of
two only—Malloy and Conway.
Malloy was discharged for obtaining a
pass under false pretences ; Conway for
neglect of duty.
Trainmaster J. W. Stevens testified
that he never told any employee that he
must either leave tiie Knights of Labor
or leave the road.
John Seery, employed under Stevens,
testified that Stevens asked him if he
was going to join the Knights of Labor.
Seery told him he was. Stevens told
him he would better get out of the
Knights, or it might cost him his bread
Australian Labor Troubles.
London, Sept. 3. —A meeting of dock

Saratoga, Sept. 3. —The annual con
vention of the American Bankers' asso
ciation opened today. President
Charles Parsons, president of the State
Bank of St. Louis, delivered his annual
address. He treated all financial ques
tions of importance, particularly the sil
ver question. On the labor question he
argued that as congress had already
passed a law for its solution that the
law should be given a chance to snow
how it worked. Agitating the question
at present would only result in harm to

A Single Tax Platform Adopted—Mr.
New York, Sept. 3.—The single tax
convention today discussed the question
whether women should be elected
honorary members. Wm. Lloyd Garrison,
of Boston, thought no discrimination
should be made. Some delegates held
that it was impossible to admit them on
the same grounds as men.
Henry George read the platform which
had been prepared. The main points
were that all men were created alike
with certain inalienable rights. No one
should be permitted to hold property
without a fair return. There should be
no tax on the products of labor, and all
revenues for national, state and munici
pal purposes should be raised by single
tax upon land values, irrespective of im
provements. The platform was loudly
The last clause of the platform excited
a long discussion. It proposed that tel
egraphs, railroads, and the water and gas
supplies of the country should be under
the control of and manipulated by the
local, state or national government as
expediency might demand. Several
amendments were offered, but weie fin
ally withdrawn, and the platform
adopted as read by George.
A dinner given to Henry George at the
Brighton Beach hotel tonight was large
ly attended. In his talk, George said
Blame can do no better than include in
his scheme of reciprocity the Australian
colonies. It is not the ocean that di
vides us so much as the tariff. Many
other speeches were made.
