THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
Saturday, Bei-tkmrbk 14. 1889.
In The language of the Chicago Times
the democrats of New Jeney, like the
democrat of Ohio, stand unoqulvocablv
by the principle of tariff reform. The
democrats of Pennsylvania take the same
stand. There Is no repining oyer the
defeat of last November, no hint of a
purpose to turn back. Pennsylvania and
Jersey are manufacturing states. Ohio
contains the wool growers, who bare al
ways made under Delano's leadership the
greatest ado when free wool has been
broached. Local sentiment and appar
ent local interest 4I0 not estrange the
democrats from the advocacy of the
broad; national principle that a tariff for
revenue only Is the only tariff congress
should lay. Protection for protection's
sake Is a vicious class and sectional leg
(station. The democracy everywhere is
faithful, notwithstanding the threats and
warnings and appeals of democrats of the

THE TANNER CORRESPONDENCE.
A Call for Its Publication and Its Prohav
Wasrinoton City, 8pt 14 Considera
ble pressure is being brought to bear upon
ths administration to make public the cor
raspond.ince which took place between 8 -c-relary
Mottle and Conimfsaioner of Pensions
Tanner respecting the latter! management
of bis bureaa The correspondence is very
exhaustive. Friemls of Commissioner Tan
ner decline to be satisfied until tbey know all
the facts in the case, and as the publication
of the correspondence is the only way to
oonvinoa them that they have all the facta,
it is thought to be only a question of tirne
when the budget will he made public.
Substance of the Ioraments.
The correspondeiMV is decidedly crisp, and
will make interesting reading. It shows
among other things that Commissioner Tan
ner was Inclined to ignore S-cretary Noble's
directions, and, indeed, his claim in at least
one instance was that the power behind him
(the commissioner) was greater than that
which was behind the secretary. A gentle
man who Is familiar with the contents of the
budget of coiTesKndenoe received by the
president from Secretary . Noble, while de
clining to repeat any portion of it, said to a
representative of the United Press yesterdny
that, wbeii made public, the correspondence
would show very conclusively that there
was but one alternative for the administra
tion in the late uuplenssntnes, and that
was the one which baa resulted
in the retirement of the commissioner. It is
learned that the correspondence was sent to
the executive, and, after reading it. the pres
dent almost immediately determined upon
bis course of action.
It May It Published.
Secretary Noble said yesterday that he
had no intention at present of Hitting this
correspondence public, but if it wa- .learned
necessary, and there was any public deniao 1
for it, be might do so in the near future. "

Ing Repulsed Kills Him A Bad Story
of Alleged Wn( and Terrible Retrl
batloa The Tragte Details.
New York, Sept 14. P. W. Oesswein,
a millionaire manufacturer of Jewelers' tools.
at 39 John street, was shot through the heart
yesterday m irning by Christian Deyble, of
918 Sergeant street, Philadelphia, and died
almost instantly. The murder was the re
sult of a litigation over soma patent rights
which receutly went against Deyble in the
courts and which left him practically a beg
gar. Deyhle refused to talk after his arrest.
but tbe story leading up to the tragedy was
told by Charles F. Koester. Oesswein's book
keeper. Deyhle, some years ago, tented a
refractor for throwing light on engravers'
tahl while the engravors were at work.
Subsequently Oesswein secured a latent for
a similar apparatus. Deyhle was not suc
cessful in his venture, and claimed it was
due to tbe fai t that his patent rights had
tswn infringed upon by Oesswein. He
brought suit against tbe latter and a lengthy
litigation ensued. Deyhle spent a small for
tune in pressing his case, and when the court
decided in favor of the defendant he was
left wilhoula cent
M one y or Murder.
Deyhle cilled at the store ut tt oVlia-k ve
terday m rnmg, and when Oesswein ent ere. 1
the latier greeted bis visitor cordially, and
liivite.1 mm to the ottice on the third flsr.
lryhle explain! that tbe objector his call
was to ask Oesswoiu for f.sH), which would
snable him to enter the Old Alan's Home in
Philadelphia. He said be thought he hadn't
been treated fairly in the matter of the pat
ent, and the tone of his voice became sharp
ami outer as he proceeile-t Oesswein took
a different view of tbe matter, and per
smptoi'ily declined to give IXtyble the money,
snd told him that though be mieht have
done something tor him, the spirit in which
the demand was made robbed him of all de
sire to do so. Deyhle altered bis tone to one
of supplication, but G.teswein held to bis re
fusal, and an instant later a pistol shot was
neara and uesswein tell and died In a mo
The Murderer Dumfounded.
When Koester entered tbe murderer was
standing in front of the chair in which he
had biwn seated. A revolver was clnsoed
firmly in his right hand, and he gazed at the
work he had wrought like one dumfoiiuded.
He made no resistance when Kloester
approach! him and took the pistol
from bis hand, and neither did be
make the slightest objection when a moment
aier i airoiman vt nice entered and put a
pair of baudcuffs on him. He did not utter
a word, but weut out quietly with the officer
and walked to the station with his head
hanging down as though stricken Reechl-ss
by tbe appreciation of bis awful crime. He
was locked up pending the action of the
coroner. The wealthy jtweler's home was
at (C3 Marry street, Itrtsjklyn, whitber his
body was taken. His wife and children were
prostrate! U.swein was worth $,00i).lHl..
while Deyhle has no family and recently has
naa scarcely enough to ent
Think Deyhle Was Wronged.
Inquiries among jewelers show that there
is a general belief that Geas wcin had w ronired
Deyhle, and had practically rottbed him of
his invention. Oesswein at first bought
large quantities of Deyhle's refractor, but
finally ceased to patronize him. Deyhle
made inquiries, and became satisfied that
Oesswein was making the refractors himself.
An infringement suit failed on technical
grounds, aud Deyhle bad no money to carry
tbe firoceedings further.
Oesswein was a very energetic man, wbo
bad built up a large business in manufactur
ing jewelers' tools. He employed -Juo moo.
He was noted for Much manners, and al
lowed no sentiment to interfere with what
he consi h-red bis business interests.

THE LAAV INVALID.
Referring to the Act Embargo-
ing Dressed Beef.
JUDGE BLODGETT DECIDES A CASE,
And Gives the Antl-"Bls; Foot" Legisla
tion Another Had Fwlt Tha Minnesota
Enactment No Good Because It Reckons
Without Your Cade Samuel Interest
ing Points from the Judge's Dec la low
A Statement of the Issoes.
Oiicaoo, Sept 14. Judge Blodgett, in
the United States circuit court, rendered an
opinion yesterday agreeing with Judges En
sign aud Stearns, of tbe Eleventh judicial
district of Minnesota, who have decided that
the Minnesota dressed . beef law is unconsti
tional and void. The case in which Judge
Blodgett arrive.! at this conclusion antedates
that in which Judges Ensign and Stearns
gave a similar opinion, and Judge Blodgett
bad prepared his notes and was getting them
in projier shape when a newspaper clipping
containing a notice of the Minnesota decis
ion wan shown him.
The Swift-Slilphln Contract.
Tba w ay the question of the validity of the
law came up in the federal court was this:
O. A. Swift tbe well-known packer of Swift
& Co., made a contract w ith John B. Sut
phin, mayor of Duluth, and they formed a
partnership for the sale of Chicago dressed
beef in Minnesota. Swift was to ship the
meat from here and Siitphin was to do the
sollimz in Minnesota. The contract provided
for R forfeit, of 7,500 by the party who
failed to jrform the terms of the contract
The conrtnership was formed May 10 last
to go into effect June 1, but April 16 the
Minnesota legislature passed its famous act
providing that all meat sold in tha state
must lie iiis)KH-t.l by state officers twenty
four hours ls-fore slaughter.
Sutphin Harks Out.
Mayor Sutphin Lacked out of the agree
ment with Swit't being frightened by the
law, which fixed a penalty of f 100 flue and
three months' imprisonment for its violation.
Tberetism tSwift sued him for 7..VI0 forfeit
and Sutphin pleaded tlie Minnesota law as a
defense. Hwilt replied that tho Minnesota
statute gave bim no excuse for not living up
to bis contract because it was unconstitu
tional, being in violation of section 8, article
1 of tbe federal constitution, giving congress
power to regulate commerce among the sev
eral states, and also of section article 4 of
tbe same constitution, (riving the citizens of
each state all the rights, privileges, and im
munities of citizens of the several stales. It
was argued on tlie hearing that cattle should
be inspected twenty-four hours Isjfore slaugh
ter by Minnesota officers if the meat w as to
be bbipped from Chicago to Duluth. Tbe
case was submitted to Judge Blodgott by
Judge Hlorigett's Derision.
Judge Blodgett said that the Minnesota
act purported by its title to b. an act for
tbe protection of the public health, and it
was insisted that it was valid because it was
a police regulation cuminx within the pur
view of the state government Judge
Blodgett held that a cursory glance at its
provision showed that its practical effect
was to exclude all dressed meats from
animals slaughtered outside of Minnesota
The animals not only must be inspected
within tweuty-four hours before death, but
they must ls inspected within tlie state, for
the only provision was as to state officers
who could have no power out of the state.
In effect, therefore, the statute excluded the
sale of meat from animals slaughtered in
other states. While the state legislatures
were clothed with large discretion as to
police powers for the protection of the
health, property and persons of citizens of
tbe state, the power must ba exercised so as
not to interfere with matters over which the
federal government had exclusive jurisdic
tion. A Specious Arrnmrnt.
The argument that the living animal
should lw inspected before slaughter in or
der to determine whether it was fit for
slaughter was specious, but unsound. The
reasoning might be applied to any manu
facture,! article which was the subjnet of
commerce. Tha wholesoroenass of flour,
cured meats, canned fruits, fih, etc., could
perhaps lie more accurately determined if
the raw material from which tbey were pro
duced was inspected before manufacture,
but the admission of the dortrino that a
state could interdict the introduction and
sale of an article of commerce unless it was
insectod by t flieera of tbo state in its raw
condition would put all commerce in ths
state within the control of the legislature.
No article of commerce could 1 excluded
from introduction into and sale in a state by
state inspection laws or prohibition laws.
The statute in question was therefore void,
as being unciMist Hut innal, and furnished no
answer to plaintiff Swift's case.
FORT M'HENRY BOMBARDED.
Tha Repulse of the Itritiah Fleet Re-En
acted la Oteat Shape.
Baltimore, Sept. 14 Last night was the
seventy-fifth anniversary of the botnbard
mentof l-ort Mcllenry by the British, and
the repulse of the latter. Tbe event was cel
ebrated by a counterfeit re-enactment of tbe
engagement itself. For this purpose three
United States war-vessels were sent on here

covered with hundreds of boats, from tbe
little tug to the big excursion steamer,
and the twinkling glimmer of their lights
as tbey wended their way in procession
down the harlor to the fort, together with
the more positive and brilliant illumination
of sky-rM?kets aud other pyrotechnics, made a
scene of rare animation.
The Kngagnuent Itegnn.
The three war vessels stood out about
three-quarters of a mile from the fort. Tbe
Pensacola was tbe IWship of tbe floet and
from ber came tbe first shot in the attack, at
8:30. Tbe fort qui kly responded with a roar
from one of its fifteen-inch guns tbat was
simply deafening. Tbe firing continued for
an hour. The firing from tbe men-of-war
was rather tame, but that from tbe fort was
immense. CoL Livingston, w ho commandeed,
had in operstion on tlie paraiets Ave fifteen
inch guns, eight nine-inch aud three gat
lings. With each discharge of the fifteen-
inch guns could Ik heard the smashing of
window glass in the buildings within the
walls. The naval display of pyrotechnic
bombs immediately below the fort was very
pretty, and they added much to the din. Tbe
affair was at an end nt p. ra

Horrible Death of a Man Who Grasped

Nxw York, Sept 14. Joseph Matt, an
Italian fruit vender, at tbe corn T of East
Houston and Christie streets, was killed yes
terday by coming in contact with a "live"
electric light wire of tbe United States Il

death was horrible and peculiar. Tba awn

and to stay bis fall, grasped a wire near the

had soaked the insulation of the wires, and
be was literally burned to a horrible mass.

A spectator attempted to bring Mats to
tba street and received a severe shock tha
moment he touched the body. After a de
lay of ten minute's two linemen appeared,
and after cutting the wires removed tha
body. Tba Band which clutched tba wire
was burned to tbe bone, and other parts of
the body which bad come in contact with tbe
network of live wires presented sickening
appearance. An ambulance surgeon, wbo
