V THE DAILY AKGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Tuesday, Jan CAB Y 15. 1889.
Secretary Vila has received a letter
from an inquisitive citizen of Massachu
setts, who wants to know who Harrison
has selected for bis cabinet. Mr. Vilas is
a very obliging sort of a man, but be was
not able to furnish the information the
down east gentleman wanted.
8t. Louis Republic: The Tote for Gen.
Palmer as the choice of the democrats of
Illinois for United States senator is no
"empty compliment," as the republicans
would like to believe. It means that Gen.
Palmer is not going to the United States
senate, but is going to be elected to stay
in Illinois and keep up the work that will
overthrow the republican minority now
The republican members of the senate
finance committee are having a picnic
with the people who wish to have changes
made in the senate tariff before it is
passed. Every mail brings letters by the
hundred, and there is a continual stream
of telegraph messengers pouriug into the
committee room. And as if that was not
sufficient, the Hlreaily over protected
manufacturer comes himself to peak his
demands. One of them has just handed
in a memorandum of forty different arti
cles that he wishes the duties made high
er on. Fie sajs he contributed largely to
the campaign fund with the distinct un
derstanding that he was to be amply pro
tected in this bill. The republicans have
agreed upon a number of amendments to
the bill, but they do not dare to make
them public until the very last moment,
for fear of the pressure that will be im
mediately brought to bear upon them to
make further changes.
Speaker Carum.k and Mr. Mills have
decided not to call a meeting of the house
committee on rules to arrange the order of
business for the remainder of the session.
Their reason for takinc this stand is the
fear that the pressure for the passage of
such measures as the dependent pension
bill would be gre&'ir than many of the
democratic members could stand, if an at
tempt was made to arrange the order of
business; and all the leaders of the party
are practically desirous that no legislation
carrying extravagant appropriations shall
pass the house this session. This deci
sion, which cu's out everything that can
not get unanimous consent of the bouse,
and the regular appropriation bills, while
somewhat hard upon many measures that
ought to be passed, and would be if they
could be brought before the house, is
nevertheless a wise one. The democrats
are confident of recapturing the house in
1890; they are also confident that the next
congress will muke many large and ex
travagant appropriations; therefore a
good and economical record for the last
democratic house will furnish the very
best of arguments to go before the peo
.ple to ask for the control of the house
again. Economy arid tariff reform will
be the democratic watch word.

The lalior question U treHt.l at lensrth, and It
Is declared the duty of government to particu
larly care for those who make their living by
toil. The true ends of government are subverted
when the law is made au in-truuient in the hands
of wealth to strike down the rights of laixir.
The real question he savs is not whethe- the coii
ditlonnf tiie lahorer here is lietter than under
the political and Industrial thwpotismg of Kurope.
but is that condition as good as it enn be made
without doing Injustice to any other class or in
terest of society.
One of the highest functions of government, the
governor says, is to keep the wnce among the
people, and against force and lawlessness of all
kinds. He therefore approves of the law passed
by the last legislature prohibiting the employ
ment of Plnkerton detectives to take the place of
the constituted authorities, (le urges additional
enactments In behalf of the working people,
such as laws regulating the construction and
sanitation of factory buildings, the roper pro
vision in mines of appliances and methods of
operation that wilt rdi.- to a minimum the
cham-es for loss of health and life; the securing
to miners of a fair system of ral.-ubuiug the
worth of their labor by providing a proper and
equitable mil as to screening the coal, and
a rigid control of the question of foreign labor,
by which the Importation of cheap workmen
may be stopped. To this end he advocates the
enactment by the general government of a law
that none but citizens or those intending tone
come such shall be employed on government
works. He also advocates a system of arbitra
tion to settle labor disputes with capital.
The estimated value of school property In this
state is put at -.Si.nflQ.UilO, and the school expendi
tures for a year at 8n.iion.ooo, of which te roo.ouo
was paid to teachers, and he urges the greatest
core that this vast sum be spent in such manner
as to produce the greatest amount of good to the
state; and one suggestion to this end Is that
teachers lie required to attain a higher standard
of knowledge of the'r profestiion. The schools
should keep pace with the times. The normal
schools are complimented as Institutions that are
agencies in ttiis direction, which are doing great
The compulsory education law of the Thirty
third general assembly, he says, has not been en
forced, although It has been in the statute book
since July. 1MSH It Is either a good or a bad law;
If good it should lie enforced, and If bad repealed.
The best means of determining the value of a law
la to enforce it. He, therefore, recommends that
It be made the duty of some one in each school
district to see that the law is otiscrved. Ignor
ance and its attendant evils poverty and crime
constitute the real danger to free institutions.
The masses must be educated, and that large and
rpidly Increasing foreign element must be as
similated and Americanized, and our public
schools are the most effective agencies for the ac
complishment of these desirable objects.
No one who discerns aright, the signs of the
times can fail to realize that another great battle
Is to be fought out on this continent. It is not
to be a war of bloodshed fought with shot and
hell, but a war of ideas. A war of law and
order against lawlessness and disorder, of moral
ity against Immorality, of religion against lire
ligfon, and If the men and the women who are to
come after us are Intelligent and brave and
strong the battle will be won, but If they are
Ignorant and vicious the battle will be lost, and
the decline of the republic will have begun.

Geo. Ilovey Takes Charge of Indians
Indianapolis. Jan. 15. The two bouses
of the legislature transacted no business of
Importance yesterday, everything giving
way to the ceremonies incident to the in
auguration of Governor-elect Ilovey. The
members of both bodies met in Joint con
vention in the ball of representatives, the vote
for governor and lieutenant governor was
canvassed, and the speaker declared the re
suit. At 1 :'M o'clock tbo senators and repre
sentatives assembled in th -l .
pectfvo chambers, aid after being
called to order, marched to English's
opera bouse, precede! -by a band.
As the column left the capitol the joint
committee of the two hotses appeared with
Governor-elect Hovey, Lieutenant Governor
elect Chase and Go vert or Gray, and all
marched toward the desig lated place for the
ina uguration ceremonies. The Opera house
was filled and it was with difficulty that re

burst of applause, and without unnecessary

G.n. Ilovey devoted a pood deal of atten
tion to the matter of corn, ption at elections
and on this head made the following sugges
tions; 1. It is the duty of the general assembly under
the Ninety-tifrh section of mr constitution .to
provide for the roirist rat ion o all persons entitled
to vote." This amendment has t-en i.i force since
March 14, ISM, hut no law has yet been enacted,
and the constitution has been disregarded. Ire
commend that provisions be made for a full and
fair registration of all le-al voters where the
rights of each elector can be investigated by the
day of election. Any person w ho shall hire or
prevent any elector from be ng duly registered
should tsj subjected to fine an 1 imprisonment.
2. Limit the number of rhetors to each elec
tion precinct so they shall nc t exceed Sno voters.
3. Provide that every prdnct shall be sur
rounded and protected by some kind of barriers
or guan rails, which w i I reveut all persous. ex
cept the jier.-ons voting, from approaching
nearer than forty or fifty feel from the Inspect
ors, judges and clerks of elec ion, and make the
infraction of this rule a luisd -meanor punishable
4 I'rovide that the buying or offering to buy
the vote of any elector, directly or indirectly, or
by any subterfuge, or evasion, or pretense, or by
hiring any person to work foi the election of any
candid te at the polls slm I Is criminal, with
penalty of disfranchisement 'or life to the briber
and the brilssl. and for a s-s?ond offense., after
conviction, let the eualty tie not less than two
years in the state prison. Men who w ill thu
pollute and corrupt the ballot are not worthy of
exercising the elective franchise, and should
never be trusted. I suggest that it might be
policjr to exempt witnesses f -oin punishment in
bribery ca.se i where they may be linpli, ated. It
w ill be almost impossible to convict the guilty
brj.s-r without such evemptioi.
Make it unlawful and criminal for any
political convention or committee to demand, ex
act, or receive an assessment or contribution
from any candidate for office, and provid the
penalty of disfranchisement f ir life to the mem
ber or members of such convention or committee
w ho may demand or attempt to enforce such as
sessment or contribution. No ofti.-e should lie
placed beyond the reach of the jsiorest man In
the state. Nominations now are said to have
their price, like the Konmn purple of ancient
days, and it i.our duty. If posohlc, to put an end
to such corn i i ion.
8. Make it uulaw fnl, with heavy fine and im
prisonment, for any (icrsoii to challenge a logal
voter at the polls. I,et the eh illcnger beware as
he imputes an attempted crbr against the elec
tor w ho offers to vote. I-t hi-n, before he makes
the challenge, be assured that be himself is not
the crimiual. Many legal voters have heen
driven from the polls by unjust and illegal dial
lenge.s. The challenge at the noils is one of the
most successful devices of t le bully ami hull
dozer, and should he prohibited un lor a penalty.
Governor Hovey also a Ivoci.t. d a local
option law for the sale or prohibition of
ardeut spirits as the peop e may choose in
each county, city, or incorporated town. He
recommended severe penalties for the adul
teration of articles of food ; urged that the
common schools be providi d with Ires text
books bought by the state or school districts
and loaned to the pup Is. lie sait that the
adoption of this system, eien should it cost
on the average of tl to the pupil, would still
lenve an annual net nn ing to Indiuna
parents ami guardians of over $k 17,000.
The oath was then administered to Gen.
Hovey, as well as to Lieutenant Governor
Chase, and tnon Governor Gray mnde a
brief address, in which he thanked the legis
lature an i the peop'e for their kindness to
him and gave bis successor Glsieed.
The public reception given at the capitol
last night by Governor H vpy. Lieutenant
Governor Chase and the newly installed
state officials and their wives was a most
brilliant affair. The weather was somewhat
tinpropitious, the late rami ren lering the
streets muddy and the sidewalks dis
agreeable. The inugiiitictnt capitol. was
illuminated from cellar lo dome with its
thousands of lights. The scene within the
groat ro.unda at 7:30, when the reception
opened, has rarely been sjrpaased on such
occasions. The governor vas accompanied
by his daughter, Mrs. Manillas, and for two
hours thi people streamed )y.
About 8 o'clock President-elect and Mrs.
Harrison arrived at the g )vernor's rooms,
and after paying their rest ects to the new
executive tbey returned to the parlors,
where they were kept busy greeting old
friends and shakiug bands.

was disposed of. Allison offered the pro

bounty of 1 cent per punnd on all domestic
sugar, with proper safeguards to prevent
foreign sugars tieing given the benefit of
the bounty. Gray's amendment admitting
free all structural iron used in the construc

foreign trade, was defeated by a party vote,
although Frye was in favor of some of its
provisions and later offered an amendment
including the same, which was also defeated,
Frye and Hale voting in favor of it and then
withdrawing their votes because they were

practically, vote against his own proposition

THE STATE AND THE DOCTOR.
AU.S. Supreme Court Decision oi Interest
to Meiiical Men.
Washington City, Jan. 15 In the case
of F. M. Dunt against the state of West
Virginia, the decision of the state supreme
court was affirmed yesU-rd iy by the United
States supreme court. The case involved
the validity of the state statute which re
quires a medical man to obtain a certificate
from the state board of health that he is a
graduate of a reputable medical college.
Dent offered a diploma from the American
Medical Eciectic college of Cincinnati. The
certificate was denied on the ground that the
college did not come tinder the word re
putable as defined by the board. Dent con
tinued to practice and was fined $5J. He
appealed the case on the grouuj tba the
statute was unconstitutional.
Justice Field in an elaborate decision
stated that the public required the medical
professions to be surrounded by the greatest
safe guards and the character of the protec
tion should be named bv the state.
Taxation of Ilrnramers Illegal.
Washington City. Jan. 15. The supreme
court yesterday announced its decision in
the case of Walter R Ktoutenburgh, intend -ant
of the Washington asylum, vs. William
J. Hennick. The opinion, which was by
Chief Justice Fuller, sets at rest the ques
tion of the right of the District of Columbia
to tax commercial agents or "drummers."
Tne court holds that congress had no power
tD delegate to the legislative assembly the
right to regulate inter-state commerce, and
that therefore all taxation of "drummers"
is, and has been illegal. Justice Miller dis
sented from the opinion on the ground that
the District of Columbia is not a state, and
that the question of regulating inter
state commerce is not concerned.
The Mom Krservattona.
Washington City, Jan. l. Dawes in
troduced in the senate yesterday a bill to
take the place of the bills introduced in the
house by Giffurd and Pool providing for the
opening of the Hioux Indian reservations in
Dakota and Nebraska. The Dawes bill
differs from the other bills in requiring the
consent of a majority of the different tribes
and fixes the price to be paid for the lund at
$1 an acre throughout instead of tl.i", for a
period of years and tiien .'!) cents an acre.
Dawes claims that bis bill is in the interest
of the Indians, while the other bills, ho snys,
are in the interest of the white people.
The Officials Are Reticent.
Washington City, Jan. 15 The offi
cials of the state and navy departments are

ders to prepare war vessels for sea. In
some quarters it is bolicved they will be or
dered to Panama to protect American inter
ests which might be endangered by riots likely
to occur there in consequence of the stoppage
of work on the Panama canal, and the large
discharge of laborers caused thereby, who
are reported to tie in a destitute condition.

Paris, Jan. 15. Premier Floquet met

of the chamber.
M. Laur retorted that be would refer his
charges to a jury of deputies, and declared
that he would send seconds to the premier to

Birmingham, Ala., Jan. 15. At Pratt
mines, near here, Saturday an unknown
negro attempted to outrage Mrs. Kellum in
a lonely spot m ar the mines, and killed ber
little boy, who was with ber. Since then
the white population of the region has been
in a state of great excitement, and parties
have been searching for the criminal. Many
negroes arrested on suspicion have been
taken before Mrs. Kellum, but until yester
day she has answered In every case "not the
man." Yesterday when one was brought
in, she cried out iu horror, "take him away;
he is the man."
On partially recovering her calmness,
however, she expressed some uncertainty,
and at her request the lynching has been
postponed until she again looks at the man,
and if she fully identifies him as the guilty
one, his late is sealed. Meanwhile the ex
citement and the search continues. The
prisoner's name is George Meadows. He is
guarded by twenty armed citiz-ns. If any
attempt is made by the military or a sheriff's
posse to take him away, he will be lynched

Cleveland, O., Jan. 15. A frightfur
wreck occurred on the New York, Pennsyl
vania & Ohio railroad near Tallmadge,
0. , at 2:3J o'clock yesterday morning, an
east bound fiassenger train colliding with
one section of a freight train which bad
iieen broken in two. Eight persons were
killed and a dozen injured.
The list is as follows: Kilted Robert Hunt

passengers, whose names were not learned,
received slight injuries.
The freight train had broken in two and
the crew resorted to the common expedient
of "doubling" the grade. The flagman who
had been sent to guard the rear section mis-1
understood the signals and came in before
the track was clear. The freight had barely
got under motion when the express car came
along. The passenger engine was crushed
into bits and Kngiueer Huntington and Fire
man Wallers were terribly crushed. A torn
1. niation bagae and smoking car and a
coach took fire immediately after the crash.
In the smoker were eight Chinamen. Five

R. Ogden Dorcmus, M.D., LL.D., says: " I subjected various

A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory'-"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities if
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
