THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Fbioat. Mat 8, 1889.
Tbb democratic convention of the
Nineteenth distnct nominated Judge J.
R. Williams, of White county, to fill the
unexpired term of Congressman Town
bend. The district Is reliably democratic
and Williams' election is assured, if the
usual vota is polled.
"Sktebal weeks ago," said an Egyp
tian friend. "I wrote a letter on business
matters to Col. Morrison, and incidently
V referred to the great canvass made by
Gen. Palmer in this state last fail, and his
efforts for the democratic ticket in Chi
cago this spring. I told bim that the
General would probably be the western
candidate for president in 1892. Ilnre is
his answer to this proposit'on: 'There
Is no objection to anybody having aspiraa
tions for anything, if they fit the time and
the occasion. Gen. Palmer never went
round snarling or snapping at me, when
for the time being, I happened to be at
the front, and if things were reversed and
' be was in the lead. I do not expect to he
less manly than he has always been.'
Now," continued our friend, "that is
Morrison all over, and all who know bim
know that be means it." Capital Idea.
Ex-Senator W. H. Barscm, who died
at Lime Rock, Conn., on the 30 ih of
April, was whs horn in 1818, and was
educated at the public schools. When
quite young be began his career as an
iron master. From small dimensions bis
premises extended their area until be
owned all the principal blast furnaces and
forges in the Housatonic valley, beside
large interests in the Lake Superior dis
trict. Mr. Barnum's political career be
. gan with his electian to the Connecticut
house of representatives in 1851. He was
reelected the next year. In 1866 he was
elected to the house of representatives at
Washington, and again in 1863 and 1870.
His popularity may be gauged by the
fact that on the last occasion he was the
only democrat in the entire congressional
delegation from his state. Upon
the death of Orris F. Ferry, republican,
Mr. Barnum was elected to fill the va
cancy in the United States senate occa
sioned by that event. His term expired
in March, 1870, when he was succeeded
by Orville H. Piatt, a republican . Dur
ing the campaign of 1876 Mr. Barnum
rendered valuabl e services to the demo
cratic cause. After the nomination of
General Hancock for the presidency, in
1880, there was a serious d iffereoce of
opinion as to who should be made chair
man of the national democratic commit
tee. The matter was referred to the can
did ate for his decision, when be selected
ex-Senator Barnum, thus conciliating
Mr. Tilden and his friends, who also fa
vored Mr. Barnum. As a political
manager be was cautious and wary, un
communicative and sagacious.
The Right Mm.
The reelection of Hon. J. C. Camp
bell, of Streator, as chairman of the Illi
nois democratic state central committee,
was not only a wise and judicious selec
tion but a mark of appreciation of that
gentleman's masterly management of the
last campaign. Mr. Campbell combines
all the qualities ne cessary for a political
manager, his strongest recommendation,
possibly, being his tireless and unceasing
energy. And as bis speech of accept
ance indicates, he fully realizes that bard
and persistent work is absolutely re
quired. The committee also made an
other remarkably good choice in select
ing Mr. George M. Haynts, of Chicago,
for secretary, who is one of the best
posted and well known democrats
in the state. It was only
after considerable pressure that
Mr. Haynes was induced to accept the
arduous duties devolving on the position.
The election of Mr. W. B. Brinton, of
Tuscola, as treasurer, is also to be com
mended. He is one of the most popular
democrats on the committee, in fact in
the entire state. He is in the employ of
the Moline Wagon company, and it has
not yet been definitely settled upon
which theme he grows most eloquent
whether in discoursing on the merits and
durability of the justly celebrated Moline
wagon or the glorious principles of de
mocracy. Messrs. Campbell, Haynes
and Brinton are a trio of workers who
will discharge the duties of their offices
with credit and efficiency.

SHAMEFUL 0EGIE3 AT TE BALL.
Respectable People Absolutely Driven
Away by the Disgraceful Conduct of
Disreputable A Monumental l'leoe of
Poor Management Ticket-Takers and
Walters Ran Things for the Money
They Coo Id Make Ladies Grossly In
sulted and Turbulence the Rule.
Kkw York, May 3. Whatever may be
said in commendation of tbe smoothness and
precision with which tbe out-door exercise
during the centennial celebration were con
ducted, it seems evident that there was a
"powerful weakness" somewhere in the man
agement of the ball which, if tbe papers tell
the truth, kiila fair to become noted prin
cipally for tbe utrngcous scene which ac
companied it On this subject The World
Now that tbe centennial ball is over, peo
ple wbo paid from $10 to $25 apiece to par
ticipate in it, and whose fun was represented
by tbe figure 0, ore tak ng out the balance in
criticism. The tongues of the ball-goers
were blistered with fault-finding Wednesday.
On all sides it was cuwedert that the centen
nial ball was the biggest executive failure of
the century. People who were most compe
tent to n;x-nk were loudest in declaring the
ball a monument ot incapacity and vulgnrity.
Disgraceful Scenes at Supper.
Tbe scenes in tbe supper room can not be
described safely in a newspaper. Never
since tbe palace of tbe Tuilleries was invaded
in 177V by tbe sans culottes of the Seine de
pertinent have such startling contrasts been
witnessed in similar circumstances. When
it is said that tbe waiters, policemen and
messeuper boys drank most of the free cham
pagne, tbe situation at midnight may be
suggested. Justices of tbe supreme court,
governors, staff -officers, clubmen, lawyers,
poets, millionaires, with beautiful and re
fined women, crowded along the supper
counter and demanded in vain the attention
they were accustomed to receive. The func
tionaries around the place showed undis
guised contempt for tbe "l'ree-luuch fiends."
Waiters who did uot have to account for the
unlimited wine took occasion to neglect
guests and treat themselves. The excellent
supper was largely wasted. There was no
responsibility for anything to anybody.
A Kloe Crowd of Revelers.
By 12:30 p. m. the supper-room bad been
given over to people whose ideas of enjoy
ment had been learned in free-and-easy re
sorts, and drunken men invaded tbe ball
room, flourishing bubbling bottles of cham
pagne, in the corridors free fights were of
constant occurrence. Gamblers, bookmak
ers, and women dozed or made merry on the
staircases. Never once did an accredited
officer of tbe evening interfere, to anybody's
knowledge. The policemen who were sober
were helpless. They could uot tell the dress
coated waiters from the guests. By I o'clock
motit of the respectable element were making
frantic and supperleas efforts to get away.
Struggle at the Coat Rooms.
Even this privilege was denied them. A
line extending from the coat rooms for 5(10
yards, and made up of some of the leading
citizens of this town, surged for hours in
front of the coat rooms. Gentlemen grew
angry and desperate at the utter inadequacy
of the arrangements. With torn coats and
wrinkled shirt fronts, men whose names are
known all over the Union, fought their way
to their coats under the frequent clubs of the
police, the jeers of tbe mob outside and tbe
pernicious activity of the pickpockets. It
was S o'clock in tbe morning before the last
battered and ragged guest joined his family
at the doors and reached bis hack.
Relates His Fzperieoee.
"In its executive aspects the centennial
ball was tbe worst of ets sort ever known in
tbe history of the city," said a well-known
man-about-town Wednesday. "The possibil
ity of letting the attendants get at all tbe
wine they wanted was enough to ruin any
plans that might have been made. I left at 3
a. in. without my hnt or coat Two of the
checkers inside of tbe cloak-room were drunk.
I got my own umbrella by paying 1, and
one exchanged for it in my sight by tbe fel
low who demanded the dollar. Of the ladies
I met, one's dress was ruined by a plate of
salad thrown over it by a drunken brute,
and the shoulder of another was
cut from a bottle which a stranger
bad broken upon it I saw more re
siwctable women insulted in the supper-room
than I ever saw even accosted at tbe French
ball. I knocked down a man who tried to
kiss the daughter of a leading lawyer."
Rascality of the Employes.
The ticket-takers had no checks placed
upon them, and there is no question but that
they made lots of money letting in people
who never should have been there. The
policemen lost their temper completely, and
cleared people out at the end of their clubs.
Hundred of bottles of wine were passed out
of doors and sold by waiters and others.
One man was drunk, fell down stairs, and
was so badly hurt he bad to be carried off in
an ambulance. Many flags and potted
plants were stolen, and some of tbe boxes
were shockingly soiled after their first occu
pants had left The supper room was cleared
by clubs shortly after 1 o'clock. The light
were turned out in the boll room long be
fore the crowd had left tbe building.

. PLAIN TALK FROM BISHOP POT MR ,
With Refereiioe to His Ceutennial Sena
at SU Paul's, New York.
New York May 3. Bishop Potter was
called upon a ; his residence in Fifty-ninth
street by a Ui ited Press reporter yesterday
with a view to learning what the reverend
gentleman ha, to say about the fiaace criti
cisms which ti e following passage ra his ser
mon at St Pi Mil's church on Tuesday had
We have exi haneed Washington's dltrnlty
f or JefTersonia simplicity, which is only an
other term for Jacksonlan vn'garity.
Tbe bishop said: "I have hoard of the criti
cisms, but bavs read none of tbem as yet"
"It is ciainwd in some quarters that you
insulted the president and attacked the Re
"I certainly lid not intend to insult or at
tack any one. I can not make any explana
tion just now, but if, on reading the criti
cisms I think it is necessary, I will do so over
my own signature."
The bishop pooh-poohed the idea that he
objected to Archbishop Corripan being
slated to prone unce the benediction at the
sub-treasury. "The archbishop and myself,"
aid Bishop Potter, "are on the most amia
ble terms, and I esteem bim highly." The
bishop refuse to further discuss the matter.
Hixhop I'ntter Ki plain Himself.
Later in tb- day Bishop Potter talked
more freely. Referring to the remark above
quoted be said: " 'Vulgarity' as I used it
did not refer to manners, but to the political
atmosphere. Vulgar means 'common.' The
manners of tie people may lie vi-ry high,
but the moral tone very low. Look at some
countries in Europe" and the bishop named
tbem. "Now you catch the idea. I am no
'mugwump'; I've been a Republican all my
life, but I hate 'taffy' and platitudes. Be
sides, there wore plenty who were sure to
pay sounding compliments to Mr. Harrison
and the natioti that honors him. I wasn't
needed for thai.
The Clamor for Office.
"Apply what I said regarding my estimate
of the preside! tial office to tbe present situa
tion. How nit ch time has Harrison given to
statesmanship! Not an hour so far as any
body knows. E.e was put where he is to main
tain the nation s dignity ; to protect the rights
of the poor and rich; to rule; not to engage
in barter and t-ade. But alas, what a spec
tacle we have. AVo behold the president of
the United Sta es of America intent only on
getting congressmen out of tbe house at mid
night so that b can go to bed. What's the
use of beating i.bout tbe bush in this matter?
It makes me very tired."
A " Hateful Dictum. "
"Then you hid no thought of assailing the
personal character of Andrew Jackson'"
"Not in the s ightest," replied Bishop Totr
ter; "but I o unit forget that under tbe
Jackson the regime hateful dictum was pro
nounced 'to the victors belong the spoils'.
A Raking for Rich Men.
"When I speiik of this as tbe era of the
plutocrats nobody can misunderstand me. I
don't intend thoy shall. Everybody has rec
ognized the ris of the money power. Its
growth not merely stifitts the independence of
the people, but the blind believers in money's
omnipotent power assert that its liberal use
condones every offense. The public does not
speak out as it should. These plutocrats are
tbe enemies of religion, as they are of the
"Has It In" for Some People.
"And, not to mince matters, J will say tbat,
while I had tbe politicians in mind, promi
nently, there are others. I tell you I have
heard the con upt use of money in elec
tions and tbe tale of tbe sacred right of the
ballot openly d if ended by ministers of the
gospel. I may find it necessary to put such
men of the si.cred office in the public pil
lory. The social tendencies in the great
cities, outside of politics, are most inspiring,
most elevating. But the spoils system, and its
related vice, th purchase of votes, are things
to be afraid of, to be jumped upon and stran
gled." LGI5LAI (VE PROCEEDINGS.

pany amende. articles of incorporation, in
creasing their capital stock from $6,000,000
to 23,000,(W0. The oflicers, directors and
stockholders of the company wore in session
all tbe forenoon here, and none of them could
be seen. This action at Springfield, however,
indicates tbat the proposals for the consolida
tion of tbe three companies operating in the
state have been ratified, and the consolida
tion practically arranged.
Details of the Deal.
It is understood tbat the agreement pro
vides for the consolidation of tbe North Chi
cago Rolling-Mills company and the Union
Steel company, and the purchase, outright,
by these two of tbe entire property of the
Joliet Steel company. The new company
will be known as the Illinois Steel company.
When it gets into operation it will have en
tire control of five of the best plants in the
country. Two of these are in Chicago, one
in Milwaukee, one in South Chicago and one
Where the Front Comes In.
It is believed that the consolidation will
greatly facilitate the business and make it
much more profitable by doing away with
competition and utilizing the plant to the
best advantage. It is claimed tbat all the
works will continue to run full handed, and
that as many persons will be employed in con
nection with tbem as formerly.
CARNEGIE AIDING THE STRIKERS.
He Subscribes S1.50O to Aid Those at the
IJiiqueone Works A Jollification.
Pittsburg, Pa., May a A new feature in
the strike at the Duquesne Bessemer Steel
works was developed yesterday, verifying in
a measure the statement that the fiht was
lietwoen the Duquesne company and Andrew
Carnegie. One of the members of tbe strik
ers' finance committee stated that Andrew
Carnesie and Capt Jones, of the Edgar
Thomson Steel works, had placed $ 1,500 at
the disposal of the strikers, and had intimated
that if more should be needed it would be
forthcoming". The strikers, who were de
spondent Wednesday, were consequently
buoyed with new hopes. It is said that if the
Allegheny Bessemer Steel company wins tbe
strike Carnegie will either have to quit mak
ing rails or buy out this firm.
Italians Refuse to Work.
Yesterday morning fifty of the Italian la
borers left the works in a body, dissatisfied
with their wages and hard work. They were
induced to return within the inclosure, but
refused to go to work.

Tiie strikers made great preparations for a
jollification last night Friends from the
Braddock and Homestead mills visited Du
quesua The streets were ablaze with red
fire. Six wapou loads of provisions for tbe
strikers were donated by the merchants, and
the strikers paraded the streets carrying
sacks or baskets of provisions on their shoul

The Question of a Scale Still a Matter
Brazil, In J., May S. The block coal min
ers of this district, 2,000 in 11 umber, quit
work yesterday because of disagreement
with the operators OTer the yearly scale of
wages. A secret delegate meeting was held
here yesterday. It is known that the dele
gates entered the convention instructed to
refuse the operators offer, with the excep
tion of the Nickel Plate, Chicago, and Jumbo
mines. About one-third of the block, miners
of the district work in the mines, but the
vote instructing the delegates was very small
and rather evenly divided.
A Strike (rnderstood To Be "On."
It is generally understood among the min
ers that a strike is on. Tbe operators offer
70 cents, but the miners have not yet com
mitted themselves to any price. Of 1,000
bituminous coal miners, less than 100 are at
work, though their differences are within MX
cents of adjustment

Waterloo, Iowa, May 3. Important dis
coveries have been made near Floyd, Iowa,
of remains of tbe ancient mound-builders.
A circular mound thirty feet in diameter
and about two feet high, has been opened
and five skeletons found. They were ex
ceedingly well preserved, the earth having
been very closely packed around them.
Three of them were males, one a female, and
the fifth a babe. The skull of the female is
in a good state of preservation, and those
who have made careful measurements of it
say tbat it shows that the person belonged
to the very lowest type of humanity. Arch
elogists claim that the measurement shows
inferiority even to the celebrated Neander
