Wednesday, January 28. 1889.
The United States navy will aoon be in
a condition to compete with that of any
nation, unless the republican adtniolstra
Hon and congress again adopt the policy
by which in twenty four years they auc
ceedcd in destroying it, while spending
millions of dollars with favored contracts
ors. The house committee on naval af
fairs has Just completed the navel appro
priation bill, which amounts to $20,000,
000. The bill authorizes the construction
of a dynamite cruiser on the pattern of
the Vesuvius, which on iis recent trial
trip attained the greatest speed of any
vessel afloat, and a 8.600 ton cruising
monitor on the plans prepared by Repre
nonUtlve Thomas, of Illinois.
Oakota as Two fotatea.
From tho Chicago Time.
The effort o( a territory to come into
the union with four United States sen a
tors is such au fr.jrt as could only be
made in the name or a political party
whose creed begins and ends: "The land
belongs to Uiti salats. We are the
In three great ran vasxes 1884, 1886.
1888 the nmionnl republicans have
worked the Dxkota business. It began
with the Sioux Fulls convention of 1883
which demanded the admission of the
southern htlf of the territory with the
undiminished nnme of Dakota, leaving
congress to provide a territorial form of
government and a name for the northern
half. That proposition not being enter
tained at Washington, the popular cry
went forth in the campaign of 1884 that
the democrats wi re "keeping Dakota out
of the union. lie then IStnator Harri
son, of Indiana, whs among the vigorous
ones to set it forth to the people that the
democrats were "keeping Dakota out Of
the union." Two ex-federal officials of
the United State. Moody and Edgerton
appeared at ashington as titular sen
ators of Ditkota. According the pnvi
leges of the floor by the United States
senate, they proceeded to warm them
selves on the senile sofas and to cool
their heels elsewhere In due time Moody
and Edgerton tired of their job and re
turned to the nosom of their constituents
Tho game of Dakota for the southern
half of Dakota had not worked, and was
not apparently destined to work.
Then a convention was held at Huron,
pretending toclnini less but ren!ly claim
ing more. It dripped the whole of the
title of Dakota titiil would be content
that the name be divided between South
Dakota and lorth D;ikot. Upon this
modest pretense "division and admis
sion' was demanded at onre, and a state
government for South Dakota was set up
under Gov. Mellette, which for a time
threatened to declare war upon the Unit
ed States. That war did not eventuate,
but still it was urged by every republican
orator that the democrats were "keeping
Dakota nut of the union."
That portion of D tkota which most
iorously proclaims iiself as being kept
out of the union (Smth. DKota) is now
apparently the least populous, prosper
ous. or progressive half of the territory
The north Dakotitns they of Fargo, and
Grand Forks, and Bismarck are not
overwhelming in favor of division, but
are in favor of admission. Therefore the
remaining powder in the south Dakota
magazine must be used for all it is worth,
and is being used in a final attempt to
keep up a show. The south Dtkotians,
who once elm rued all, now only claim
precedent over north Dtkota. The north
Dakotians, who were once to he relegated
to the selection of some other name for
their puta'ive territory or state, are now
preparinejthemselvegto 'claim everything '
ine territorial bills will certain! v fail at
this session of congress, and will be a
thorn in the side of the flm congress to
assemble under President Harrison. The
two uaKoias uavb already become one
It is doubtless true that Vermont, with
830,000 population, heartily seconds the
idea of four United States senators for
two states of Dakota, hut that New York
with 8.000,000 and Pennsylvania with
4.000,000 and Illinois with 3 500.000
should agree to such a liberal spread of
senatorial honors is surpassing strange.
Neither the territorial area nor the popu
lation nor the promise of population can
warrant the South Dakota claim for
"division and admission." If its counter
part claim should be set up by the Pan
handle of Texas the state of Farwell,
for instance such a cry of pain would
be raised as would shake all the republi
can presses and pulpits in the land from
Bangor to Yankton, and virtuous repub
lican senators would hasten to assure the
country that such a division of Texas
must not be entertained.
And yet Texas is believed to have the
Inherent r!ght to create four additional
states within Itself by its treaty of annex
ation. The Texas politician, however,
who should seriously propose to divide
that great state would most likely be
killed on the spot and buried without a

policy, with a reasonable reduction of rev.

that it was "a condition and not a theory"
that now most troubled, his Democratic

reductions made by the Republican party as
sufficient evidence that the Republicans, so

Numerous amendments were reriorted from

Just here the vote began to break un a lit

Brown moved to make the rate on cleaned
rice 2 cents per pound; on uurlaned rice. 1 4'
cents; on paddy, 1 cent, and on broken ri-e,

Reagan offered an amendment to the bill
by adding a section lmoKiug an income tax.
The amendment was rejected. Senators Brown,
Payne, and Pugh voting no. The rate on
oranges, lemoas, and limes was increased. An
amendment offered by Allison was agreed to,
repeuling the provision of law requiring a

customs officers. An amendment reported
from the finance committee to add to para
graph 523 (putting diamonds, etc., on the free
list) the words "and jewels to he used in the
manufacture of watches," was agreed to.
Plumb moved four amendments, all of

the third to reduce the duty on railway bars
and punched iron or steel rails from M0
cent to 11-20 cent per pound; and the fourth
to reduce the rate on beams, girders,
etc., from 1 cent per pound to 9-10 of a cent.

St. Paul, Minn., Jan. 23. The "shadow
of a great crime" was hanging over both
houses of the legislature yesterday and they
did not ballot for a United States senator.
Tho trouble was the alleged bribery in con
nection with the caucus nomination ofthe
Republicans and which a senate committee
is investigating with closed doors. There are
fearful rumors of iolitical unrighteousness
going tlie rounds, but nothing at all is
known as to what testimony the committee
has before it. The house adjourned for the
day by reason of the failure of a report on
the case and the senate took a recess until
8 p. m.
The senate reconvened with closed doors at
8 p. in. and discussed the testimony taken by
tho committee, but dropped that after awhile
and confirmed governor's appointment. At
12:".(this morning a vote ou senator was
taken. The Democrats and anti-Washburn
men refrained from voting, the result being
that Washburn received 24 votes: Knute

there was a scene during the secret session of

so the story goes, was presented. It was to
the effect that he was approached by Senator
Buckman, Sa bin's chief lieutenant, who
otrered him a bribe to vote for Sabin in the
caucus. Estes claims that he spurned the
offer, and it is known that he voted
for Washburn. No sooner was this testimony
submitted than Buckman, who is a small,
lame man, was upon his feet. Ills face was

his desk as he leaned toward Estes and
threatened to cram the lie down his throat.

At 11 a. m. the senate took up the business
as a special order and 1 homas nominated

to each of the first two named, and the ballot
resulted: Cullom, 35; Palmer, 13; Kent, 1.
Two senator (Campbell and Ricker) were ab

memljers of the house declined to vote, thus
giving Senator Plumb tho unanimous vote of
both houses the first time a senator was ever

A Bloody Story Told by Sailors
JACK THE RIPPEK'S AWFUL WOEK.
Three Crimes Exactly Similar to Those In
the Whltechapel District. Save That the
Victims Were Black A Yonne; American
Who Has a Penchant for the Same Kind
of Prey Lynching Episode in Louisiana
New York, Jan. 23. The Sun says: The
crews of the various steamers plying between
this city and Kingston, Jamaica, are telling
fearful stories of crimes committed in Span
ish Town, a village near Kingston. The first
of a series of diabolical and mysterious mur
ders took place, so the sailors say, Nov. 23,
1888, in St. Catharine's parish, a few miles
distant from Spanish Town. The victim was
a negress of the lowest and most vicious class,
whose name has never been discovered. She
was found early in the morning lying in a
fence comer by the roadside, her throat cut
from ear to ear, her cheeks, nose and fore
bead slashed in a manner that would
indicate it to be the work of a skillful butcher.
Her clothing bad, as in the case of nearly all
the Whitechapel murders, been thrown over
her head, and the little crowd w hich had gath
ered there ujx)n the discovery of the body
were hoi-rifled to see that it had been muti
lated exactly as had been done in the London
cases. If anything further had been needed
to make the horror-stricken crowd attribute
the crime to the Whitechapel fiend it was
found on a card pinned to the unfortunate
woman's body by tho blade of a small pen
knife. The card bore this inscription: "Jack
the Ripper. Fourteen more, then I quit." Ot
course a diligent search was made for the
murderer, but he was not found.
On the morning of Dec. 13, in a field, lying
by and partially concealed under un old shed.
was found a second liody. In this case the
woman was a notorious creature of the lowest
class, a negress called ' Mag." Her wounds
were of the same nature as those inflicted
upon the other. The authorities made a hur
ried investigation and buried the body as
speedily as jiossiblo, giving no one an oppor
tunity to examine it. No nientiou of the
crimes was made in the newsiiipcrs at the
time, the officials endeavoring by every means
in their power to hush the matter up and
nave it talked about as lilt 1.. as possible. N
trace was ever found of the murderer, und it
was forgotten save by a few of the wretched
w-omen who belong to that class among wbitb
the unfortunates moved.
The third Ixidy was found on the Friday be
fore ew ear's day. This time the newspa
pers were compelled to notice the discovery.
The scene of this third murder was about
midway lietween the places where the former
discovoriMs hud been made, and the sailors in
sist that the crime was in every w ay analogous
to the others.
There are comparatively few women of this
class about Kingston or Spunish Town, but
those who do live there are in a state of abject
terror. I h mil merer has eluded the authori
ties, and the sailors expect to learn of further
atrocities on their return.
