corner of- Henry street and Seventh

o'clock after a long and protracted
illness. The funeral services wore held

the family residence, conducted by
Rev*. W. F. Hamner and C. S. Stanton.
The remains were taken to Lexing?

bearers were R. A. and L C. Buokner,
John Roberts, H. R. Colman, G. W.
Priddy and L. G. Poyntz.
Mrs. Edwards leaves a husbaud and
three children, the youngest about two
years old, and the eldest thirteen. Mrs.
Kdwards was a consecrated Christian
and adorned all the relations of her life
with a consistent exemplification of the
Christian graces. She was a devoted,
self-sacrificing mother, a true and faith?
ful wife, a friend whose friendship was
a benediction. She died in the full
triumph of the Christian faith. The
unwearied devotion of her husband
through the many days and nights of
her long and painful sickness was
beautiful, and spoke in language more
elcquent than words of tue high esti?
mate he set upon the jewel about to bo
removed to too beautiful borne of tbe

WHY HE DID WOT SIGN THE BILL.
Cleveland Expresses His Views
in a Letter
To Representative Catching* on the Sub
Jsct?He Had Hoped Congress Wonld
Pass a UIU He Could Sign?Accuses
the Bill of Containing Inconsistencies
and Crudities?Allotts It to Become m
Law Without His Signature.
Washington, Aug. 27 ? PreBidont
Cleveland has written the following
letter to Representative Catchings, of
Mississippi, in which he sots forth his
viewB of the new tariff law, and gives
hlB reasons for not approving the bill:
"Executive Mansion, |^ ,
Washington, Aug. 27, 1894. )
"Hon. Li. 0. Catchings.
"My Deab Sir.?Since the conversa?
tion I had with you and Mr. Clark, of
Alabama, a few days ago, in regard to
my action on the tariff bill now before
me, I haveglven the subject further and
moss serious consideration. The result
is, I am more settled than ever in the
determination to allow tho bill to
beoome a law without my signature.
"When the formation of legislation,
which it w&s hoped would embody
Democratic Ideas of Tariff Reform,
was lately ontered upon by the Con?
gress nothing was further from my
anticipation than a result which I could
not promptly and enthusiastically in?
dorse1. It is therefore with a feeling of
the utmost disappointment than I sub?
mit to a denial of this privilege
"I do not claim to bo better than tho
masses of my party, nor do I wish to
avoid any responsibility which, on ac
oouat*of the passage of this law, I
ougbt to bear as a member of the Demo?
cratic organization. Neither will I per?
mit myself to be
Separated From My Party
to euch an extent as might be im?
plied ?by my veto of tariff legislation,
which, though disappointing, is still
chargeable to Democratic effort. Hut
there are provisions In this bill which
are not in line with honest tariff re?
form, and it contains inconsistencies
and crudities which ought not to appear
in tarilT laws, or laws of any kind.
"Beside there wore, as you and I well
know, incidents accompanying tho pas?
sage of the bill through tho Congress
which made every sincere tariff re?
former unhappy, while influences sur
nounded it in Its later stages, and Inter
rWod with its final construction, which
oufght not to be recognized or tolerated
by '..triff reform counsels._ And yot,
notwithstanding all its vicissitudes and
all the hard treatment It received at the
hands of party and frionds it
Presents a Viitt Improvement
to existing conditions. It will certainly
lighten many tariff burdens that now
rest heavy on the people. It is not only
a barrier against the return of mad pro?
tection, but it furnishes a vantage
ground from which must bo waged fur?
ther aggressivo operations against pro?
tected monopoly and governmental fa?
"I take my place with the rank and
file of the Democratic party whoboliove
in tariff reform, and who know what it
is; who aro not blinded to the fact that
the livery of Democratic tariff roform
has been stolen and worn in tbe service
of Republican protection, and who have
marked tho places where tho deadly
light of treason has blasted the counsels
of tbe brave in their hour of might.
"The trusts and combinations?the
communion of polf?whoso machinations
have prevented us from reaching the
success we deserved,
Should Not Be Forgotten
or forgiven. We shall recover from
our astonishment ,at their exhibition
of power, and* if then tho question is
forced upon us whether they shall sub?
mit to tho freo legislative will of the
people's representatives or shall dictate
tho laws which the people must obey,
wo will accept and settle that issue as
one Involving the integrity and safety
of American institutions.
"I love the principles of true Democ?
racy because they aro founded on pa?
triotism and upon justness and fairness
toward all interests. I am
Proud of My Party Organization
because it is conservatively sturdy and
poraistent in the enforcement of its
principles. Tboreforo I do not despair
if tho efforts mado by tho House of
Representatives to supplement tho bill
airoady passed by further legislation,
and to havo engrafted upon it such
modifications as will more nearly meet
Democratic hopos and aspirations.
"I oannot be mistaken as to tho
Free Raw Materials,
as tbe foundation of logical and sensi?
ble tariff reform. The extent to which
this is recognized in the legislation
already secured is one of ita encourag?
ing and redeeming features, but it is
vexatious to recall that whilo freo coal
and iron ore have been denied us, a re?
cent letter of the Secretary of the
Treasury discloses tho fact that both
might have beon made free by the an?
nual surrender of only about 8700,000 of
"I am euro that thero is a common
habit of underestimating the import?
ance of free raw materials in tariff legis?
lation and of regarding them as only
related to concessions to bo made to our
manufacturers. Tho truth Is their
Inlluenee Is so Far Reaching
that if disregarded a complete and ben
oBcial Boheme of tariff roform cannot bo
successfully Inaugurated. When wo
give to our E?anuficturers free raw ma?
terials wo unshackle tho American en?
terprises and ingonuity, and those will
opon tho doors of foreign markets to tho
reception of our wares and glvo oppor?
tunity for tho continuous and remuner?
ative employment of American labor.
"With materials choaponed by their
freedom from tariff charges the cost of
their product must bo correspondingly
cheap 3ned. Thereupon justice and fair?
ness to tbo consumer would domand that
tbe manufacturers be obliged to submit
to such a
Readjustment and Modification
of the tariff upon tbeir finished poods
as would secure to the people the ben- j
eflt of the reduced cost of their manu?
facture, and shield tbe consumer against
the exaotlon of inordinate profits. It
will thu* be seen that free raw materials
and a just and fearless regulation and
reduction of the tariff to meet the
ohanged conditions would carry to every
humble home in the land the blessings
of increased oomfort and oheaper living.
"The millions of our countrymen who
have fought bravely and well for tariff
reform, should be exhorted to continue
the struggle, boldly challenging to open
warfare and constantly guarding against
treachery and harf'-heartedness in tbeir
camp. Tariff reform will not be Bottled
until it is honestly and fairly settled in
the intorest and to the benefit of patient
and long suffering people. Yours very
truly, Grover Cleveland."

Coney Island, N. Y., Aug. 27.?Sel?

that to-ulght at the Seaside Atlantic
Club between Jaok MoAullffo and Allen
Griffiths, better known as "Young
Griffo," tho former the light-weight
champion of America and the latter tho
feather-weight champion of Australia.
Both men are far beyond the weight
limit of their respective classes, but
this out no figure to night, as the men
fought at catch weights and the contest
was decided on its merits. The sport
began with a wreBtling match and two
minor boxing contests. John Madden,
of Brooklyn, beat Connie Sullivan, of
New York, in a six round match, and Al
O'Brien, of Philadelphia, knocked out
Charles Burns, of Cincinnati, in the

were Pote Dunn, Con Riordan.H. Tuthlll
and Billy Sllllnnt. Maxoy Moore, of the
Now York Athlotic Club, was roferoe.
"GrifTo"sald he weighed 133 pounds
and McAullffo said ho weighed 140
pounds. But tbe difference between
theso weights when they entered the
ring looked very much greater. Mo?
Aullffo looked fully twenty pounds the
Ten rounds woro fought and "Griffo"
had all the best of It but tho referee
decided McAullffo tho wlnnor. Pande?
monium reigned when the announce?
ment was made. The spectators hissod
and groaned until tho building fairly
trembled and all hands yollod for
"Griffo." When McAullffo left the
Btago tbey hissed and groanod at him
all tho way back to his dressing room
and yelled "robber," "robber.".
It was unquestionably tho most bare?
faced decision that has ever been given
at a boxing contest in this vicinity. Tho
entire assemblage wore highly indig?
nant, and the police had to come to tho
front and clear tho way. "Griffo" mado
a speech from the stage, and Bald he
would Qght MoAuliffe to a finish at any
time he desired to fight.
The crowd bung around the outside of
tho building Bhoutlng "'Griffo.'" It
was his fight beyond a doubt.

For a Year? Hid On Gars At a Los? la
Order to Giro Men Employment.
Chicago, Aug. 27?Edward F. Bryant,
cashier and manager of tbe Pullman
Loan and Savings Bank, was the first
witness to testify before the national
labor commission this morning. It was
the buslnoss of his bank to transact an
ordinary banking business as woll as to
collect rents. Bryant said the accumu?
lations of three or four years were
drawn out during the strike.
Geo. M. Pullman took the stand
immediately upon the reassembling of
tho commission this afternoon. He
stated that the Pullman Palaoe Car
Company was organized July 31st, 1867,
with a capital of 81,000,000, t
The town of Pullman was established
in 1880. Commissioner Wright con?
ducted the examination of Pullman.
He asked the president of the Pullman
Company to tell, in bis own way, the
objects of the company, and why tbe
town was built.
"The plan was," said Mr. Pullman,
reading from a typewritten manuscript,
"to establish a community for working
men which would enable them to live in
harmonious relations with the company.
The relations of tbe Pullman Company
are, however, simply those of a land?
lord in regard to its employes, which it
treats as tenants.
"Tho basis of profit was 6 per cent,
per annum, which, at that time, was a
frir profit on tho investment. Tho cost
of establishing streets and improve?
ments was, of course, considered in
making this calculation. This dees not
include the cost of tho manufacturing
"The Pullman Company, Mr. Pullman
stated, did not Bell property within tbe
limits of the town.of Pullman because
tbo company did not wish objectionable
characters to establish themselves in
tbe town. Thoro were in consequence
no saloons or houses of ill-repute in
Pullman as thoro might otherwise have
Mr. Pullman then proceeded to ex?
plain tho Pullman lease. There is a
clause In tho leaso which provides that
either party may terminate it by giving
ten days notice This was for the pro?
tection of the Pullman Company so that
It might oxcludo all objectionable char?
In answer to a question by Chairman
Wright tbe witnoss stated that the cap?
ital of the Pullman company amounted
to 830,000 000 and that it had a surplus
of over SIC,000,000. He also said that
ho had bid on cara at from 3300 to S400
below the cost per car rather than Bee
