THE HOOK TBIgQn AKGTTBt SATURDAY FEBRUARY 23, IS89.
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
Saturday, Fbbscabt 23, 18ft.
Now that old Jehu Baker couldn't
bamboozle the raters of the Eighteenth
x congressional district to reelect him to
congress, he wants Harrison to send him
as minister to Venezuela, where he served
under Gratt and Arthur. John is a
tiokler for office and is always on hand
where there Is any "pap" to be distribu
ted. Ore of the most stubbornly contested
senatorial struggles ever witnessed, ter
minated Thursday in the reelection of
8enator Senna, of West Virginia, to the
United States senate. His competitor
was Gaja. Goff. the republican candidate
for gubernatorial honors. It looked re
peatedly as though Ken na would be com
palled to withdraw to secure democratic
supremacy, and his success demonstrates
somo fine generalship.
Voted Kt hi.
Hon. E. W. Hurot was reported absent
and not voting when the resolution
passed to adjourn the legislature for one
week to give the G. A. R. the use of the
state house. The adjournment cost the
taxpayers of the state $9 000, and was
carried high-banded by the republican
majority over the democratic minority.
We are pleased to state Mr. Hurst was
present on that occasion and registered
himself as unequivocally opposed to the
republican scheme to deplete the state
treasury of f 8.000. The Springfield Reg
ieter of Friday has the following to say
in regard to Mr. Hurst:
Hon. E'more W. Hurat. rprescntative
from Rock Island, is reported erroneously
m the bouse journal ns being absent and
not voting on the 8,000 adjournment,
and It was so printed in the State Rgittr.
Mr. Hurst states that he was present and
voted against the resolution to adjourn
from Tuesday. F- b 19. to Tuesday. Frb.

Hurst wants to be recorded right on that
question, and we take great pleasure In
making the correcion. Ho will doubt

Tbe following letter regarding tlie
presentation of the play. Dixie." at Mo
line night before lst speaks for Itself:
Editor Democrat Gazette-.- I attended
Thursday nUht t:.e play entitled "Dixie,"
fiven by the Davenport Sons of Veterans
he audience though exceedingly small,
was thoroughly appreciative. I cannot
understand boar a play, so admirable in
its cast of characters and perfect working
of all stage appliances, did not draw an
overflown g house, as Moline generally
turns out "en musV when a hit is made;
but I do not thick the power and talent of
the plot was understood, and we have
been deluged with plays this winter.
Those who did not see it were tbe losers.
It was so realistic at times, tbtt one ia
voluntary closed his eyes, when the re
port of gun or revolver flashed out upon
the air. Mr. and Mrs. Miller are "stars"
far exceeding taoie of many traveling
troupes, and tbe piny was well sustained
The tableaux were exceedingly beau
tlful. and those with tbe band and or
chestra were worth tbe prioe of - admis
sion. A tribute paid to its rendition
was the constant wiping of the eyes by
a lady with me whose husband was in
the service, as the pathetic scenes were
given, and tbe thorough indignation of a
young ladv at my aide over tnt "borrid
Confederate cfflitr.' Truthfully yours,
Mrs. Dan w. Gould.

CbicaOO, Feb. 23. The annual Union
I:iue olub observance of Washington's
birthday drew a distinguished and overflow
ing audience to Central Music hall yesterday
afternoon. Ex-Governor Jacob D. Cox, of
Ohio, who was secretary of the interior in
Grant's first cabinet, was tbe orator of the
lay. Taking as bis subject, "Washington,
the Citizens' Example," he delivered an
eloqaeut although radical address, which at
times aroused the critical assemblage to more
than ordinary enthusiasm. He deplored at
length the decadence of the simplicity in
politloal affairs that marked the administra
tion of the first president, the tendency of
politicians and pension agents to control the
soldier vote, and tbe corruption which pre
vails in politics, and strongly commended
civil service reform on the ground that the
ofllcea belonged to tbe whole country and not
to any one pnrtv.
The oratory was followed by the annual
banquet of Tbe Union League in the main
banqueting hall of the club. Over 500 mem
bers participated, while the special guests in
cluded Gen. Russell A. Alger; Hon. Hannibal
Hamlin; Henry W. Darling, a prominent
purine man or ioronto; Hon. FraukF. Davis.
of Minnesota, who placed Judpe Gresbam in
nomination nt tbe last Republican conven
tion; Senator Miuidrson, of Nebraska; Hon.
John F. Clarison, of Iowa, and Gen. Cox.
The address of Gen. Alger, who was an
nounced to speak upon "AmeriMin Policy for
American reopie, received close atteutlon.
as it was believed to be an index of the views
of Preeidentrelei-t Harrison. Among other
things be said:
fcIt seems to me that wo are too apt to look
upon the government of the country as
though it were a complicated machine with
mysteries hlltion around its big chair to be
viewed only by a sol act few, -whoa in fact it
is simply a great commercial concern and
should bo managed as gentleman manage their
numerous business affair. American policy
should be carried out s'.mpjjr by the applica
tion of common sense business principles and
mutual protection to nil interests and all peo
ple within our boundary Hun. I am tired of
the constant talk of the north and the south.
the east and the west, as though they wore
divided. Lws should be enacted and en
forced applicable to all parte of the countrr.
and no person living under the protection of
our Hag should be so great or buiuhle, so rich
or poor, but should have equal protection to
the most favored, provided be violates no law
of tbe land. I am aware of the fact that
many diOlcultiet must be overcome, but I
believe such measures will be adopted bv
congress and enforced by the roan we have
ceiled to execute them as will attain this end
Political assassinations and political bondage
suouid cwise and be broken. If necessary,
the whole power of the government should
be brought into use o atta n these ends
"This should te accomplished (and I be
lieve it feasible) by mutual concessions, for
bearance and common desire to benefit ail
classes. But it should be dona"
The f penker wont on to advocate protection
w nome mausiriHs, to denounce loreign An
archists, and to advise them to stay away un
less they were willing to support the govern
ment in peace and in war; and to urge that
the country, while pursuing a policy of peace,
Should fortify her coast defences and her navy
for emergencies. He concluded with a plea
for more liberal pension provisions for tbe
veterans of the war.
Tbe other speakers included Hon. Frank
Davis, or Minnesota, who, responding to the
sentiment "Manifest Destiny made a strong
agument for the annexation of Canada.
Hon. Henrv Darling, of Toronto, in an ad
dress upon "The Political Relations of the

Baltimore, Md., Feb. 23. The Maryland
Line of Confederates held its annual re-union
last night in this city. Among the promi
nent people present were United States Sena
ton Wade Hampton and M. C. Butler, of
South Carolina; A. H. Colquitt, of Georgia;
Congressmen Charles . Hooker, of Miasia
sippl. and Charles T. O'Ferrall, of Virginia.
The principal speech waa made by Gen. Thomas
L. Roeser, of Virginia, who succeeded Gen.
Jeb Stuart in command of the Confederate
cavalry after the latter's death. Gen. Roeser
reviewed tbe war and compared the relative
numerical strength of the northern and
southern armies. He said that the reason
the south waa enabled t hold out for four
yean against such heavy odds was that ber
men were superior to those of the north. He
asserted that the reason why tbe south waa
victorious in every battle in Virginia was the
fact and is still the fact that the southern
gentleman, as man to man, can whip a
puritanical Yankee every time. Be also
'I am tired of Gettysburg insincere re
unions and 'Blue and Gray' love feasts which
politicians are holding, while old Sherman
threatens, and others dare to call tbe loyal
citizens of the south traitors. I feel that I
am, and I believe that every brave Confed
erate is, more loyal to the constitutional gov
ernment of tbe new United States than are
the rank and file of the Grand Army of the
Republic (so-called), and I bolieve that we
have more affection for and are more loyal
to the flag of the new Union than they."

Chicago, Feb. 23. Far well hall was filled
last night with workingmen, who bad assem
bled to indorse the action of the St. Louis
convention of tbe American Toleration of
Labor in deciding upon May of next year as
the date for the final inauguration of the re
vived eight-hour movement
The demow; ration was under the auspices
of the Central Labor union, assisted by the
Eight Hour league. Quite a number of
prominent men, including Franklin McVeigh,
Lyman T. Gage and Rev. Robert Mclntyre,
had been invited to countenance the proceed
ings with their presence and voice, but were
compelled to decline from the fear that ths
Anarchists would become as prominently
mixed up in the proceedings as they were in
138o, this opinion being bused upon the fact
that many of the "reds" are already taking a
leading part in the agitation.
The gathering was presided over by M. F.

Cardinal Gibbous, who eulogised John
Carroll, first bishop of Baltimore, the
foundor of tbe colltge, who he said was
eminently fitted "for tbe delicate tak of
adapting tho discipline of the church to the
requirements of our civil government." He
also complimented Prtsident Cleveland.

alma mater and the in- press tbe college had
made ou the citizenship of the country with
a wish for its future pt asperity, he said :
"Another thought, b-irn, I suppose, of the
solemn trust which I have held for the Amer

cerning tbe relation wl.icb such an Institu

need, but we also neud good cituannhip.
There should not ha that selfishness
in education which lea in its pomessor to live
within himself and to hug hlc treasure with
sordid satisfaction. Tje least an educated
man should do ia to make himself a good,
true American citizen, and be fails to do his
entire duty if be does not also improve the
citizenship of others. His love of country
should be great, his interest in public affairs
should at all times be active and his discbarge
of tbe duties of citizemhlp should be guided
by all tbe intelligence he possesass and aided
by all the learning he has acquired."
The exercises closed with a reception, at

That Means an Extra Session.
Washington Citt, Feb. 28. An alterca
tion took place late yesterday afternoon in
one of the committee rooms of the senate be
tween Senator Blackburn, of Kentucky, and
Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire. Reli
able details are lacking, but rumor has it
that certain unpleasant epithets were applied
to Blackburn by Chandler and that Chandler
was physically assaulted. It is doubtful if a
blow was struck, but it is rumored that one
of tbe ears of the Now Hampshire senator
was violently pulled. There has been a de
cidedly unpleasant feeling between the two
senators for some time, and this bad feeling
culminated in the altercation.
The New York World's correspondent tele
graphed to his paper the following as to tbe
difficulty: "The quarrel between Blackburn
and Chandler grew out of disagreements in
the committee on Indian traderships. Chan
dler was imprudent enought to call Black
burn a slave-driver, whereat Blackburn told
Chandler that his diminutive size alone saved
him from chastisement and be would only
pull his ears, which he did iu most approved
style. The other members then separated the

Washington Citv, Feb. 23. The senate
yesterday concurred in the house amendment
to the bill authorizing a bridge aiross the
Mississippi at Alma, Wis. The sundry civil
bill was proceeded with and an ameudment
was agreed to declaring April 30 next (the

national holiday, and providing for a proper
celebration of the first meeting of congress
after Washington's inauguration by the
assembly of the Fifty-first congress
on the second Wednesday in De
cember next, with appropriate ceremo
nies. The amount appropriated is ?8,000.
An amendment appropriating $40,000 for a
statue to Gen. Hancock was also agreed to.
The agricultural appropriation next came up,
and an attempt to take the distribution ot
seeds from tk-e members of congress and give
it to tbe state experimental stations was de
feated. Tbe bill was then passed, and the
bouse amendment to the Mrs. Sheridan pen

GRANT AND -ROSECRANS.
Their Little Unpleasantness Brought I'p in
Washington Citt, Feb. 23. When Ran
dall called up in the houe yesterday tbe bill for
the retirement of Qen. Rosecrans, it waa op
posed vigorously by St ruble of Iowa, who
accused Rosei-rans of villifying Gen. Grant,
and quite a liv oly debate followed. Cannon,
Cutcheon aud Cheadle lavored the bill, the
latter saying he would vote for it In liebalt
of tbe soldiers of Indiana with pleasure.
Boutelle of Maine said he could not vote
for the bill without, in some measure, indors
ing or condoning the assault made upon
Grant, while Holmes of Iowa eulogized Rose
crans, and said that Grant was an autocrat
when the war ended. He had endeavored to
blot the name of Rosecrans, as it were, from
the roll of the army, and attempted to tarnish
his fair fame.
MacDonald of Minnesota thought it imma
terial what Rosecrans or Grant had said. As
a simple act of justice to a distinguished of
ficer the bill ought to pass.
Randall said that be had taken part in the
proceedings of tbe bouse at the time of the
paseag of tbe Grant bill. It was on his mo
tion that tbe bill was passed. He could re
call no event ot his public life that gave him
greater and deeper gratification. Applause
Gen. RoeHcraus could have prevented the
passage of that hill, but he bad not done so.
Let gentletneu rise up to the full stature of
manhood and forgive as tbey expected to be
Btruble criticised Holmes for the attack on
Grant, and this endod the discussion, the
bouse apparently thinking that there bad
been enough of irritation of old sores.
AN EXTRA SESSION IMMIMENT.
Prospects of a Bitter Fight Over the
.Washington Citt, Feb. So. Randall will
call up his resolution for tbe consideration of
tbe Cowles tobacco tax repeal bill as soon at
the deficiency bill is passed, and there is ex
pected to be a lively fight over it Mills ii
quoted as saying tbat it shall never pass. 11
tbis is true the busiuee of this congress will
be ended when the resolution comes up, aud
the appropriation bills not acted upon will
fail of passage. This would remove-all possi
bility of avoiding on extra sessiou. If Hit
Randall resolution ia kept before the house
an extra session must be called almost imme
diately after adjournment.

. Reagan Says It Is Wicked.
Washington Citt, Feb. 8.1 When the
senate took up Everts' resolution for a re
vision of the existing laws regulating etoo
tious of members of congress, Reagan
addrsssed tbe senate in opposition. He pro
tested solemnly against the wickedness of a
partisan and sectional appeal. If the people
of whole communities and states were to be
judged by tbe acts of law-breakers what
would have to be said of the appeals to blood
shed and murder in Kansas over asicbool lo
cation, or of the murder of a young innn re
cently in Brooklyn because be would not
join a mob of strikers.

London, Feb. 23. In the Paraell commis
sion yesterday the cross-examination of Pigott
was continued. Pigott admitted having writ
ten to Archbishop Walsh that tbe evidence
which would be produced before the commis
sion could be rendered harmless by tbe ex
posure of tbe means by which it had beau ob
tained. Witness admitted receiving the let
ter from Archbishop Walsh, mentioned Thurs
day. He was very much distressed for money
when he wrote to the archbishop.
Sir Charles Russell so closely questioned
Pigott at this point that he voluntarily ex
claimed: "I may as well say at once that my
statements to Archbishop Walsh were un
founded. Sensation. They were exaggera
tions with a very little truth. My statement
to the archbishop tbat I could nullify the
evidence by exposing the discreditable means
by which it was sought to institute proceed
ings was also unfounded."
His opinion being asked concerning the
genuineness of tbe Parnell letters", witness
said he had stated that they were rather
doubtful. Pigott would not swear that he
had not told A rchbisbop Walsh tbat the let
ters were forgeries. Sensation. He doubt
ed the genuineness of the letters because be
was uuable to identify the handwriting in
anj of them. He lielieved that the Egan let
ters were genuine, but he would not swear
that they were He admitted having asked
Archbishop Walsh not to believe that be
witness was the fabricator of the letters.
Sir Charles Russell aaked witness if be
knew who did fabricate the letters. Witness
said he did not, nor did be believe that they
Russell produced letters showing that Pig
ott ha I literally hawked his information
around. Ho hud written letters to Egan
similar to those to Archbishop Walsh, and
when the phrasing of Euan's replies was com
pared with the same In the alleged Egan let
ters giveu to The Times tbey w-re very simi
lar, indicting forgery. This, however, Pig
ott denied, and had the cheek to say that he
did not know but what the letters Russell
produced were forgeries.
Thursday just before Pigott's examination
closed for the day Rusal! asked him to write
the word "hasitancy" on a piece of paper. In
one of the alleged ParneU letters this word is
spelled ''hesitency," and the object, of course,
was to see if Pigott would spell it the same
way, in order to ci'eate a strong presumption
of forgery. He did spell it with the aen in
stead of 'a, and it was also shown that he
had frequently spelled it that way In other
leters be bad written. Yesterday be ad
mitted that he misspelled tbe word
"hesitancy" In the witness box Thursday.
He beiieved that the knowledge that the
letter of Jan. 9, 1S32, similarly misspelled the
word had influenced his mind. This letter
did not corao into his possession until the
summer of ISM), so be could not account for
the misspelling of "hesitancy" in his own
letter prior to that.
Sir Charles Russell produced the witness'
letters to Meagher and pointed out further
resemblances to The Times letter. Ha then
asted tu; witness if he was not ashamed of
Pigott replied hotly: "Under the circum
stances, no; it is scandalous that I should be
thus quest ioni I did not forge the letters.
If I did, I abould not be here."
Mr. Reid produced letters written by Pigott
to Foi-ster, in which Pigott asked a loan.
After much writing, in which Pigott pleaded
poverty, Forstor sent him 100 as a private
loan. Soma time latur, as a matter of per
sonal sympathy, Forster loaned Pigott .0 to
enable him to go to America.
Tbe effect of Plgott's evidence has had a
startling effect upon public opinion, and the
matter is almost tbe sole topi' of conversa
tion in all circles in and out of the lobbies of
the house of commons. The conviction ia
rapidly becoming general that Pigott himself
is tbe former of the so-calle 1 Parnell letters,
and Tories vie with Paruellites in the depth
of their condemnation of the wretoh who is
convicted out of his own mouth of acta
scarcely less heinous than those of Judos Is
cariot. It is asserted that Mr. Walter, who was
mainly responsible for The Times' crusade
against ParneiL, will personally bear all of
tbe expanses and costs incurred by tbe paper
in conducting the case before tbe commission.
even if be has to sell his estates to raise the
money. Tbis resolve is believed to be tbe
result of a stormr interview between Mr.
Walter and his copartners in tbe proprietor
ship of Tbe Times, in which the matter of tbe
papers inability to pay its usual dividend
was tho foremost topic of discussion and Mr.
Walter's sudden announcement of his inteu
tiou to go to Nice to recuperate is undoubt
edly another result of that heated meeting.

GOVERNOR HOVEY'S FIRST VETO.
The Supreme Court Commission Bill It
"Goes" Anyhow Probable Result.
Indianapolis, Feb. 23. Governor Hovey
sent the first veto message of his administra
tion to the general assembly yesterday, de
claring his objections to the supreme court
commission bill. The executive said that
he had considered the provisions of the mea
ure maturely, and tbat he objected to it
for the reasons, first, that it attempts
to impose commissioners upon tbe supreme
court to perform a part of their duties witfc
or without their consent, and second, because
the legislature has no power to make the ap
pointments provided for in the bill. The bil
provides that the members of the commifsioc
shall be commissioned by the speaker of th
hou-e, and this the governor objects to as un
The message was read at once in the house,
and under the operation of tbe previous ques
tion, was put to a vote, the doorkeeper having
token the precaution to lock the doors to pro
vent the Republicans from breaking a quorum.
The roll was then called and the bill wet
passed by a vote of 56 to 42 An hour later
the bill, with the action of the house
was certified to the senate, antf
it was taken up in the afternoon. Th
previous question was ordered, all debate
was cut off and the bill was passed by a strict
party vote, and is now a law. As the speakei
of the house will issue the commissions, the
governor has nothing more to do with th
bill, and the fight now comes up between th
commissioners and tbe supreme court, th
former beiug Democrats and the latter Re
publicans. This commission can not act
unless it is recognised by tbe supreme
court, for tbe latter has charge ol
the records through the. Republicar
clerk. Tbe same party has the purse string!
of tbe state in its hands, and there is no ques
tion but all demands for money under the
bill will be refused. Tbe situation is one ir
which two courts will be antagonistic witl
all of the advantage ou the side of tbe su
preme court, a body which will not hesitate
to sustain the governor's veto with as muct
pleasure as the Democrats of the legislature
took in faying to render it a nullity.

vents mine owners from running what it
known as "Pluck Me" stores, and the bill de

GOVERNOR LARRABEE'S TRIAL.
A Letter from One of His Counsel Makei
Things a Little Embarrassing.
Des Moines, Ia., Feb. 83. In tho trial oi
Governor Larrabee yesterday only two wit
nesses were examined Private Secretary
Hossfeld and Chief Clerk Bristow, of the ex
ecutive office. Both testified that the gov
ernor ordered the printing of the pamphlet
containing the alleged libelous mAtter.
A letter written by Judtre Colo, one of tht
governor's counsel in this case, and dated
Stpt 28, 1SS3, was introduced by the prose
cution. It states that the writer had thor
oughly examined tbe Chester Turneyease
aud was convinced beyond a doubt that a
young man had been sentenced to tbt
jienitentiary for the aggregate term of
seventeen and a half years without any trial
by the jury or by the court; that the proceed
tugs connected with his alleged conviction
and actual sentence were merely formal and
in his absence and without the calling of any
witnoes whatever. It proceeds: "I entertain
no doubt that Chester Turney is suffer
ing punishment w ithout any proof of hi
guilt, and that his further conflncmnt as
well as that hitherto is a travesty on jutic
and a positive outrage on both law aud hu
ms nit v."
The letter was objected to for the reason
that it was addrossod "To Whom It Mux Cop
