THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W- POTTER.
Wednesday, Mat 23. 1888.
"A republican stronghold like Illinois
it not going to select the presidential
candidate In a democratic convention,"
a&yi a republican orgm. The republis
can party is in a large and Increasing mi
nority in Illinois, and Illinois will bare a
voice in all national democratic conven
tions commensurate to its importance.
Bt. Louis Repxtblic.
Right you are. Mr. Republic.
Mhawlal Their Colors.
Last year a committee of the republi
can New York senate started out with a
great flourish of trumpets to investigate
trusts, for the purpose, it was pretended,
of devising measures for the report just
filed by its republican majority. The pre
tended inquiry was for the purpose, of
gulling the people, and next of frying the
fat out of the trusts for campaign boodle
by threats of hostile legislation.
Since there is no longer any reason for
keeping up appearances, the republican
members of the committee have presented
a report in which they defend the trusts
as the natural and necessary outcome of
trade development. In conclusion they
assert that trusts and monopolies are a
blessing, while free competition is a dan
gerous evil. In consideration of the
beneficent character of the trusts, they
recommend no hostile legislation. In
other words they adopt the BlaineCar
negie idea, that trusts "are private affairs,
with which nobody has any right to in
terfere." The democratic members dis
sent from the conclusions of the majority
Contrast this with the pledges of the
republican national platform on trusts.
It declared "opposition to all combina
tions of capital organized in trusts or
otherwise to control arbitrarily the con
dltions of trade among our citizens,"
and urged upon congress and the state
legislatures such legislation as will pre
vent the execution of all schemes to op
press the people by undue charges on
their supplies, etc. Contrast it also with
the pledges of Harrison's letter of ac
ceptance. He declared that under the
operations of the trusts "the wage
earner alone suffers." and that "the leg
islatures should and would find means by
which these and like eyils shall be effect
No doubt the masses of the republican
voters accepted these declarations as sin
cere, but the trusts and monopolies were
not in the least alarmed by them. Every
where their members contributed as lib
erally to the republican campaign fund
and to campaign work as did the member
of the linseed oil trust in this district.
They understood that the promises were
made simply to gull the people and would
never be redeemed. The laudation of
trusts by the republican New York sen
ate committee shows bow well the mem
bers of trusts and beneficiaries of mo
nopolies understood the republican plat
form and its leaders. Burlington Ga
zette. Mr. Harm' Hrawore Advanrrd.
Mr. Hurst's saving's bank bill was ad
vanced considerably in the house yester
day. Among yesterday's Springfield dis
patches to the Chicago Herald is this:
Mr. Stoskopf, secured a suspen
sion of the rules for the second read
ing of Hurst's savings bank bill that had
just come back from the printer. Pend
ing the reading, Hunter, of Enox. moved
an adjournment. This proposition was
voted down and the speaker ordered the
clerk to proceed with the reading. The
old bill was bitterly opposed by many
members on account of its exemption
from taxation of the assets of banks or
ganized thereunder. This clause has
been eliminated and does not appear in
Mr. Hurst's measure. Wiley Jones said
the bill had never been in committee and
moved its reference to the committee on
banks and banking. The house, on mo
tion of Mr. Paddock, tabled this motion.
Pike, of McLean, thought it was danger
ous at this late day for the house to at
tempt to pass a savings bank bill. He
then moved to strike out the enacting
words of the bill. Jones thought the
measure should be killed. Mr. Crafts said
the original bill was defeated on account
of its provision exempting the assets of
the bank from taxation. The new bill was
unobjectionable on that ground. Mr.
Wells asked for the reference of the bill,
that it might be properly considered in
committee. Meyer, of Cook, and Mr.
Stoskopf and Hunter, of Winnebago,
made little speeches in favor of the bill.
Mr. McElligott, of Cook, thought the bill
should be defeated at once, because he
regarded it as a very suspicious measure.
Browne, of LaSalle, made a little talk, in
which he said the bill was opposed by
monopolistic bankers and money loaners.
There should be savings banks in the
west, that the people might be educated
to lay aside their earnings. Greene, of
Alexander, said fight against the bill
should be made on third reading. Mr.
Pike intimated that some "boodlu" bank
desired to unload its fictitious and worth
less assets, and be hoped it would be de
feated. The motion to knock out the
enacting words was lost by a vote of
yeas 28 to nays 61. and the bill sent to
t arter Ylnx.
Chicago, May 22. The jury in the
Carter case rendered a verdict in favor of
Mr. Carter this morninz.

Washinotoi City, May 22. Mr. Fortar,
tha superintendent of the census, has discov
ered that he ha a namesake living in Indi

matter by the gontlemnn himwlf, who wrote
to inform Superintendent Torter that the

but that he would waive all claim to the po

After All the Flour Bf ilia German Con
cessions In tha Samoan Affair Forelarn
London, May 22. The action of the Mad
rid court of justice in paatiug sentence of
four months' imprisonment upon Senor Ra
fael Corrome, the well-known Spanish novel
ist and journalist, for writing aud causing to
be published a libel upon the Duke of Edin
borough, creates a good deal of talk at the
clubs. Tbe article, which was written while
the dtike was with tbe British squadron at
Barcelona, was filled with statements con
cerning his private life, and appeared in
large typo in the leading Republican news
papers in Valencia. The prince was very
anxious that the matter should be hushed np,
but the public prosecutor thought differently
and the unlucky journalist is now paying
penance for his sensation.
Tbe "Juke" Had the Jim-jams.
Copies of the paper, however, had in the
meantime found their way to certain club
roysterers in London, who are always on the
qui vive for anything with a salacious flavor,
and society is now fairly reveling in Senor
Corroine's revelations. No English paper
has so far dared to print the current rumor
that the fever and attack of nervous prostra
tion which necessitated tbe bringing home of
bis royal highness by special steamer was in
reality an attack of what among common
people would be designated as the "jim
jams." The details, too, of the prince's ar
rival at Portsmouth have been colored by
Tbe Court Journal to meet the usages of
polite society. Tbe truth is that, although
the Duchess of EJinburg was waiting on tha
jetty when the Alexandria steamed into
Portsmouth harbor at 10 o'clock at night,
she was not allowed to see her sick husband.
He Had a " Relapse."
He had suffered a "slight relapse, " so the
doctor said, and could not be disturbed. It
was probable, moreover, that several days
would elapse before he would be equal to the
fatigue of a railroad journey. Yet the next
morning this very sick man was so much im
proved that he was able to walk to the train
and to make the entire journey to London
without interruption. The bulletins issued
on the morning after his arrival announced
that he was "greatly improved,' and in a
few days, thanks to the watchful eye of tbe
duchess, he Was as well as ever.
' SLAUGHTERED ON THE NILE.
Soldiers of the Mulutl Shot Down by Emin
Cairo, May 2i A letter has been received
by tbe ministry here which is believed to con
tain direct details of the defeat of the Mahdist
forces by the troops and allies of Emin Pasha.
The letter was written from Omdurman, by
Mohammed El Beruavi, oue of the Mahdi's
officers. He writes that he accompanied the
force which tbe Mahdi's successor sent up the
Nile a year ago to conquer Emin Pasha.
They were stopped by the vegetable growth,
whioh sometimes spreads over the Nile so
thick that a steamer cannot force its way
A Regular Hatchery.
While they were cutting a passage through
they were suddenly attacked by Egyptian
oflloers in the service of Emin. The Mabdista
were completely defeated. Their boats stuck
in the mi. Idle of the river, and all the enemy
had to do was to fire at the mass. A large
number of men were killed and still more
were drowned in the effort to get ashore.
Those who escaped retreated as fast as possi
ble down the Nile.
AMERICA AND FRANCE.
Home Felicitous Remarks Exchanged by
Carnot and Reld.
Paris, May 22. Hon. Whitelaw Reid,
minister of the United States to France,
presented his credentials to President Carnot
yesterday and made a short speech to the
Rabbling Over with Friendship.
"It Is my good fortune," said Mr. Reid, "to
represent America here when France is cele
brating a centenary as important as the cen
tenary recently celebrated in America. We
do not forget that you helped in the success
of onr revolution. This increases our inter
est in tbe magnificent display of the arts of
peace with which you nobly crown your cen
tennary. My instructions inform me that
there does not exist one shadow of difference
between France and the United States cap
able of obscuring the century-old friend
ship of the two republics which, I hope, will
An Easy Task for Reld.
In reply President Carnot repeated the
comments on the two centennaries, and con
cluded as follows: "Mr. Reid, you will find
from tbe French government and from all
Frenchmen a cordial greeting. Pursuing
the common idea of democratic progress and
social justice the two nations cannot cease to
understand each other. On grounds of in
ternational rclutions your task is, therefore,
an easy one. Monsieur Minister, you are
welcome among us."
THE BRITISH WANT THE EARTH.
Not Satisfied with All the Beer, They
Are After the Bread Now.
London, May 22. There is good authority
for the statement that a movement is on foot
among English capitalists to secure control
of some of the largest flouring interests in
America, among them being the Pillsbury
properties in Minneapolis. Negotiations have
been under way for some time, but thus far
no conclusion has been reached. The plan it
is believed is not to create a "flour trust" ex
actly, but to syndicate some large and valua
ble milling and elevator properties.
O'Brien Testifies for the League.
London, May 23. William O'Brien, the
irrepressible editor of United Ireland, was in
the witness chair in the Parnell case yester
day, looking pale and weak from the effects
of his imprisonment He was permitted to
sit while giving his testimony, and his voice
was very low. He said the Land league had
prevented crime in Ireland, citing Tipperary,
where be stated that no murder bad been
committed since the league was established
there. He said tbe tenants were perfectly
destitute at that time, and the landlords bru
tal and guilty of the most outrageous rack
renting; the league improved tbe situation
and ameliorated the condition of the tenants.
He fully approved of boycotting, and said it
prevented crime. The government should
pursue a policy of conciliation. The govern
ment in 1688 suppressed United Ireland be
cause he the witness bad charged the minis
try ith having manufactured crimes, a
charge be was prepared to prove. O'Brien
then proceeded to detail tbe alleged manu
factured outrages, but Sir Richard Webster
objected, and tbe court sustains 1 his objec
tion. Germany to Restore Malietoa.
Berlin, May 24 Tbe American and Ger
man commissioners on the Ha moan troubles
came near arriving at the forks of the road,
yesterday. It is reported that tbe Amer
ican commissioners insisted that Ger
many should restore Malietoa, the king the
Germans dethroned and put under arrest.
This the Germans insisted was too mnch to
ask, and declared that having "pardoned"
Malietoa, that matter shoald be considered
closed. Tbe matter was the subject of a
spirited debate, and it is stated that tbe Ger
mans finally consented to restore King Ma
lietoa and that the only hitch now in the 8a
moan matter is over the amount of indemnity
to be paid to Germany.
Significance of Humbert's Visit.
Berlin, May 22. The Tageblatt, refer

a military convention between Germany and
Italy will be signed by the king and kaiser
du Tng the former's stay in Berlin, with a
vk w to tbe possibility of the occurrence of
wa r between one of , tbe signatory parties
an I Franoo. In connection with this state
meat it is significant that several Italian
ml itary officers of high rank have arrived
in Berlin incognita, presumably to discuss
the details of .the convention. The city was
en fete when King Humbert, his son the
crewn prinoe and Premier Crispi arrived
yesterday, and tbe royalties were cheered by

state. The memorial also asks that a royal
resi lence be maintained in Dublin.
Thousands on the Verga of Starvation.
London, May 23. The details of tbe floods

woist reports hitherto received. The coun

INDIAN FIGHT IN MANITOBA.
A Litrge Number Slain and Another Battle
Winnipeo, Man., May 22. Word has just
been received here of a ferocious fight which
took place near Fort McLeod last week be
twe n a band of Blood Indians on one side
and a force composed of soldiers, cowboys
and Gros Ventres on the other. The Bloods
havf. lately been stealing horses from the
Gros Ventres, and the fatter, assisted by
soldiers and cowboys, made an effort to re
cover the stolen animals. As usual the
stories as to the number of killed are con
flicting, but it is certain that quite a large
number were slain.
The Dead Were Duly Scalped.
Mmtof the bodies were carried away by
friends of the fallen, but three or four were
disc vered on the field minus scalps. The
Bloo is appear to have gotten tbe worst of
the encounter. They got away with most of
the stolen horses, and are now being closely
pursued by mounted police.
Another Fight Looked For.
Another encounter is likely to take place
wber. the police come upon them, and serious
trouble is feared. It is alleged that American

They Make Life Miserable on
a Maine Railroad.
GATEEPLLLAES STALL A TRAIN,
While Mosquitoes, Hungry for Red Blood,
Banquet on the Laborers The Railway
Hands Cuss In Five Languages, But It
Takes Two Locomotives to Get Over
the Difficulty Eleven Miles of Gray
and Greasy Wrigglers.
New York, May 22. A dispatch to The
World from Lewiston, Me., says: The rail
road men who went out with tbe pioneer train
on a new line through the Maine wilderness
Monday had an experience which left them
blistered, weary and disgusted. The train
was brought to a dead stop in the woods by
millions of caterpillers, which took a fancy
to crawling on the raiU, and defied every de
vice essayed'for removing them until another
locomotive was sent to the rescue. More
over, droves of hungry mosquitoes swooped
down on tha trainmen and drank their
Small and Gray, bat Greasy.
The advance guard was seen by a railroad
timekeeper ss he rode over the line on his
velocipede the night before. He encountered
a lot of small, gray caterpillars, which had
Rpread themselves over the track so thickly
t hat he had to push his machine along by
hand for half a mile. A big engine and
eleven flit cars, 1 oaded with 1,500 ship knees,
the Canadian Pacific's first train for busi
ness, started from Nebois from Brownville
Monday morning. It had gone tut a few
miles when it ran into a sticky, squirming
mass, which the locomotives ground to a
greasy pu'p that clogged the driving wheels
and prevented them from getting any grip
on the track. It was as if wheels and rails
had been thoroughly larded.
" Tooh ! " Said the Engineer.
The train came to a standstill, and the con
ductor and engineer made an investigation.
"Pooh!" said the engineer. "Bugs!"
"Ha, ha," laughed the conductor deris
ively. They jumped aboard after a little scraping
and tried to start again, but it was no use.
Tbe "bugs" were too much for them. As far
as the eye could reach the little caterpillers
were in complete possession of the track.
The Canadian Pacific was turned into two
lines of gray wriggle. The train was in the
midst of the woods.
An Extra Loeomotive Starts It,
"Cut bushes and try to sweep them off,"
said the conductor to the trainmen. All
hands tried it, but the bushes crushed the
pulpy mass, and only smeared the track
worsa than ever. Sand was then sprinkled
on the rails. This enabled the engine to
start, but the caterpillers soon greased the
ties again, and the train halted. A mes
senger was dispatched to the Sebois station
and the situation was telegraphed to the
manager of tbe roaiL He sent an extra
locomotive and a crew of helpers to the as
sistance of the beleaguered train. With a
force of men scraping and sanding, with an
engine to pull and another to push, the train
crept through tbe woods at a snail's pace.
A vast horde of large and ferocious mos
quitoes came out of the depth of the forest
and assailed the motley crew of railroad men,
showing no national predilections, but draw-
tag blood from Poles, Frenchmen. Russians,
and Irishmen alike. Even a bishop would
have smilod to see the crowd fighting mosqui
toes with one hand and caterpillars with the
other, all the time swearing in at least five
different languages. Superintendent Van
Zile issued the orders, and charge after charge
was made at the steep grades lubricated wit h
squeezed caterpillars. All day long, and
after the sun had gone down, the locomotives
and men toiled to drag that train from Se
bois to Brownville.
Eleven Miles or "Rugs."
The myriads of caterpillers covered the
rails for eleven miles. When the train
reached its destination at last it bore the
most exhausted and disgusted crew ever seen
outside of a blizzard. The railroad officials
are mystified and worried. They have some
fears of the iwrve fon-e of this army and
its next attack, and are consulting the "bug
ologists" about it. Superintendent Van Zile
talks now of digging ditches and flooding the
rood with running water.
THE MATTER OF CHEAP FUEL.
Important Experiments in Progress at
Pittsburg with Suggestive Results.
PlTTSBURO, Pa.. May 22. The interest felt
here iu cheap fuel is intensified bv the ernmv
iments now coins on at the establishment of
Aloorhead & Brother, by which pulverized
coal is brought luto actual competition by
uie process controlled by Eastus Wiman, of
New York. It has been running for a week
at these works, with remarkable results. It
is claimed that 4,0(10 pounds of iron were
drawn in an hour with a charge of 700 pounds
of coal, which is all wed to lm th ei.oant
run ever made, because the refuse coal which
is used costs less than 50 cents per ton. A
public test is to be made on the 27th, at which
Mr. Wiman and his associates are to be pres-.
Coal Cheaper Than Natural Gas.
It is stated that the A lloirhantr n.nn-
Electric Light company is now using cool as

chance was made as a matter nf amnnmv
experience showing that the amount neces
sary iu run uie piant wun coal as luel Is

body who are also attached to tbe
Knights of Labor cannot receive either sick
or death beuoBts from the Brotborhood of
Carpenters, nor be assisted during a strike.
McGuire is also secretary of the National

preted as indicating strained relations be

withdrew from the knights and others de
clined to do so.
