; onstrate the inexpediency of changing
tbe tariff schedules on the products in
which they are interested.
The delegation was headed by Joseph
Wharton of Philadelphia, vice-president
of the American Iron and Steel associ
ation. Wharton said there were 450.000
i persons engaged in the manufacture of
iron and steel, who represented a popu
lation of about 2,250,000, dependent
upon this industry for a livelihood. He
insisted that the present tariff was tbe
] best that had ever been imposed, and
that under its operation prices were re
duced to the consumer. "The practice
of changing the tariff," said he, "is one
of tbe most noxions things known to
business interests. We are suf
fering from a condition of dis
tress and strain, which I suppose
few people outside of the industry are
aware of. It is by tbe destruction of
credits. Every man in this business is
a borrower, and under tbe present con
dition of affairs it is almost impossible
get money. It is not tbe silver ques
tion alone which has brought this
about, but fear on the part of the man
ufacturers of adverse tariff legislation."
Hon. George H. Ely of Cleveland,
Ohio, president of the Weston Iron
company, maintained that $182,000,000
was invested in the iron ore industry of
the country, employing about 380,000
men, and that a reduction of the tariff
would be ruinous to these industries.
William R. Hirling of Chicago, first
vice-president of the Illinois Steel com
pany, stated that the companies which
formed tbe Illinois Steel company em
ployed 95,000 men, paying in wages $6,
---000,000 a year, which under tariff reduc
tion would necessarily be reduced ma
terially. A number of other northern
and southern iron men argued in the
same line. The hearing lasted eight

THE NEW TARIFF BILL.
It Will Be Mnrh More Moderate Than
Chicago, Sept. 11. — A Washington
special says: It has become evident, as
expressions of tbe ways and means com

be much more moderate than if framed
six months ago, but there is a practical

BISMARCK IN A BAD FIX.
The Iron Prince Said to Be In a Critical
Paris, Sept. 11.—It is reported from
Kissengen that Bismarck is seriously ill.
He has lost tbe use of both of bis hands.
It is said he is stricken with paralysis.
He is being fed by attendants, and the
doctors are holding a consultation of tbe
gravest nature. Though tbe real state
of his health may be somewhat exagger
j ated, there seems to be no reason to
doubt that his illneßß is most
1 serious. Sciatica is said to be the foun
dation of the disease. Dispatches in
quiring about his health are be
ing received at Kissengen from all
parts of Europe. It is hardly believed
he has paralysis, but there is little hope
that he will live any great length of
time. It is reported that the emperor
telegraphed for accurate information.
j A specialist in Berlin is being consulted
as to the advisability of removing him
to a milder climate. His present condi
tion is thought to be due to bis per
sistence in receiving deputations in the
open air in defiance of the doctors'

San Francisco, Sept. 11.—The new
six-team baseball league will be organ
ized in this city tomorrow at a meeting
to be held at J. B. Gilbert's office. San
Francisco will have two teams, and so
there will be two new local magnates at
tbe meeting. J. T. Stafford, manager of
the Scott & Gilberts, and Paul Keller,
manager cf tbe Allen's. The other man
agers will be J. A. Cowan of tbe Peta
lumas and J. W. Woodard of the Santa
Rosas. These four teams are to be rep
resented because the new California
Players' league is to absorb tbe ama
teur Central league. Oakland will also
join and the sixth team will probably be
from either Sacramento or San Jose,
though Stockton and Vallejo are also
mentioned. Men from all of these cities
will take part in the meeting, and it is
possible that an eight-team league will
be the result, though that suggestion is
not locally favored. The chairman of
the meeting will be W. J. Hunter of the
San Francisco and North Pacific rail
road, and be is named for president of
tbe league. Although the players of the
recent California league are to remain,
the old teams will be broken up and the
players distributed among the six new
clubs, in which the best of the amateur
players are to be retained.

president had several conferences over
the matter, an agreement was reached
by which it was decided to authorize
Major Keyea to surrender the Mexican

Arkansas City, Kan., Sept. 11. —Nina
clerks from Washington began today
registering 20,000 homeseekers who are
in this vicinity. Daring the first hoar
less than 100 certificates were issued,
but as the clerks became more familiar
with their duties, thsy worked more
rapidly. The record for the day was
1689. At this rate it is impossible for
all to register before Saturday, when
the strip will be opened, unless tbe force
of clerks is increased.
Owing to tbe dust that fills the air,
and lack of water, those in line experi
ence much discomfort and suffering.
Water sells at 10 cents a cupful and 25
cents for a canteen. The interior de
partment is bitterly condemned fot
locating tbe booths on a strip away from
water and shelter.
John B. Cameron, a Kansas City real
estate man who had been waiting' since
3 o'clock Saturday, received the first
certificate. Then a lot of women who
had not stood in line, but to whom the
men gallantly gave way, were registered.
Nora Willey, 14 years old, got through
the crowd with two cups of coffee which
she gave to the clerks, saying: "I am
an orphan and therefore the head of a
family, and I want to register for a town
The men displaced at first looked
blankly at her and then cheered. A
clerk gave her a certificate, which she
triumphantly waved aloft.
The last two days have seen a great
influx of boomers. Every load leading
here is filled with an unbroken proces
sion of wagons, and every train comes
crowded. The crowd now present ex
ceeds that at the Oklahoma rush.
_ Saturday and Sunday there was a se
rious bread famine. It is almost impos
sible to get anything to eat at the hotels
About 30 wheelmen came in from
Kansas City and St. Joseph today. The
bicycle organization numberß over 100
men who will make the run.
The county attorney sent out deputy
sheriffs to drive away tbe three-card
monte men and other sharpers who are
swindling the boomers.
Caldwell, Kan., Sept. 11.—Twelve
thousand people are here awaiting the
opening of tbe Cherokee outlet. About
1500 succeeded in getting certificates to
day, and as fully 10,000 more are yet
to ba registered, Officer Ketchum has
telegraphed to Washington for permis
sion to open two more booths. The
crowd is patient and good-humored,
and give up their places in the line to
women without grumbling. Tbe "strap
pers" are numbered as they fall in line,
so that they can leave without losing
their places. The poorer farmers, who
make the run, have become excited and
many will probably try to enter the
Btrip before the opening hour. One
man will make the race with a mule
and common bob sled, claiming the
runners will glide over tbe grass with
greater ease than wheels.
Washington, Sept. 11. — Secretary
Smith issued an order this afternoon
that no railroad train shall be permit
ted to enter tbe Cherokee strip for six
hours before tbe opening next Satur
day. For three hours after the opening
trains will be allowed to enter under
regulations, tbe chief of which are that
they shall be for general use and not
chartered to favored passengers, and
shall atop every five minutes, and not
run faster than 15 miles per hour.

Niw York, Sept. 11.—Justin Mc-
Carthy, leader of the Irish Home Rulers
in parliament, cabled the following mee-'
sags and appeal to Mr. Emmett, presi
dent of the Irish National Federation of
Tbe rejection of the home rale bill by
the lords opens a new chapter in the
struggle for Irish liberty. On one side
are tbe elected representatives of tbe
people, the sympathies of the British
democracy and the unconquerable spirit
of the Irish race; on tbe other
side is an hereditary and irresponsible
chamber, concentrating in its ranks all
that is worst in English prejudice,
wealth and arrogance. Tbe result is not
doubtful. Tbe bouse of lords have made
a similar etand against every great re
form sent up to them by tbe bouse of
commons. In the long run progress and
the people's will have triumphed and
the insolence of the privileged classes
chastised. But the struggle will be a
bitter one. We have to fight against an
unexampled combination of wealthy
aristocrats, desperately struggling for
their privileges, by appeals to every
weapon of defamation, bigotry and cor
ruption. We have to look to our faithful
countrymen in America for means of
sustaining our party through the inces
sant sacrifices imposed upon them, and
of the carrying on of an active campaign
in English constituencies against the in
solvent enemies of Irish liber
ty. There never was a time
when Irish-American assistance was
more urgently needed or when
it could produce a more splendid result
in securing to our country tbe great
measure of Irish self-government which
has sprung from the genius of Glad
stone, and which the commons has once
for all solemnly pledged itself to carry
into a law.
London, Sept. 11.—Justin McCarthy,
the Irish leader, is seriously ill of bron
let Curzon Hold What Cnrzon Held.
Editors Herald: In your issue oi
September lOtb yonr remarks upon the
articles in the North American Review
on the course oi France and England in
Siam and elsewhere in tbe East, Eng
land's side oi tbe case being presented
by the Hon. Mr. Curzon, recall the
motto of the house to which Mr. Curzon
belongs. The age of the family would
perhaps astonish the social reporter of
Keokuk or Oshkosh, who writes up, in
a phrase getting quite common in
this country, the splendid new
residence of "one of the oldest
families of his town, though the pos
sessions of the English family were ac
quired by no harder or more honorable
work than that of a sturdy American
pioneer. Tbe estates of tbe Curzons
were received from the king in 1308,
and their beautiful old park and man
sion in Sussex, on one of those byways
of England which few foreign visitors
ever find, is a perfectly typical English
country home of the class to which it
belongs. While I was looking with
great interest at the ancient portraits
and armor belonging to Lord de la Zouche
the head of the family at the time of
my visit, the motto carved in black let
ters on an old oaken chair attracted my
attention and fired itself in my memory.
It was: "Let Curzon hold what Curzon
held." That is an unusually hard,
common-sense motto for a crest, bb well

most strongly the whole foundation and
theory of tbe feudal system of tenures,
which has resisted the advance of a new
age better in England than in any other
But Mr. Curzon's motto not only il
lustrates tbe tenacity of the English gov
erning class, it is very apropos with ret
to the whole character and history of
tbe people of England, at home and
abroad, including tbe oriental policy de
scribed in your editorial. Britain not
only holds all that she ever held, except
America, but is instinctively ready to
put her armaments in tbe way of any
aggressor upon the comparatively peace
ful nations of the Orient. With all Mr.
Curzon's patriotism and his marked log
ical skill, he would find it too hard a
