cable the 31 am.
Ever bioce the question of "who would
make the best rice for congress on the
democratic ticket in the Eleventh district
the coming fall?" has been propounded
and it has been asked quite frequently
within the past six months the invaria
ble reply of the Abgcs has been '"Ben T.
Cable!" The query as to whether Mr.
Cable would accept the nomination if
tendered him, however, is still a matter
of conjecture, as he has so far maintained
a rijMd silence on the subject. Never
theless, the feeling in his favor seems to
have taken root in all parts of the dis
trict, and unless Mr. Cable himself by
word or action interposes an objection,
his unanimous nomination might now be
prophesied with considerable safety.
The Chicago Herald has been appar
ently investigating the congressional sit
uation in this district, and it also baa ar
rived at the conclusion that the best inter
ests of the democratic party will be sub
served by Mr. Cable's nomination. Be
sides a long special on the subject in
Monday's Herald, the following compli
mentary allusion appeared among other
slate pol.tical melange:
The democrats of the Eleventh con
gressional district are talking of another
candidate for congress, now that Delos
P. Phelps says be will not run. His
name is Ben T. Cable, of Rock Island,
and be is a young man of much character
and ability. His father. P. L. Cable,
could have had the nomination eight
years ago when Neece was elected, but
declined on account of ill health, and
since then his son has been put to the
front. Ben Cable was a delegate to the
Chicago convention that nominated
Cleveland; although an iron manufac
ture! he is an enthusiastic tariff reformer
and has a wide acquaintance in tbe
Eleventh district, being born in Rock
Inland. Although the county is repub.
lican. he could ct.rry it against Gest, woo
is utterly unfit for the place, and the
democrat who carries Rock Island county
is sure of election.
And the Davenport Democrat adds this
testimonial to Mr. Cable's worth and
The democrats of Rock Island county
are intent upon defeating Congressman
Gest this year. Tbey propose to do it by
nominating Ren T. Cable, although tbey
do not use Mr. Cable's ntme so much for
defeating anybody as they do for electing
tbe man of their choice. Mr. Ctble is a
young man who has had every advantage
of education, travel and business, and,
what is better, be has improved to the
fullest extent of all them. He has shown
much interest in politics for several
years. There doesn't Bp pear to be any
doubt that with Mr. Cable as an aspirant
be ran have the Hock Island delegation
and with it those of Warren and Mercer
counties. Not only this, but once in the
field as a candidate, tbe chances of elec
tion in that close district are in his favor.
The state republican machine, tearful
that the democrats will wrest Illinois
from them this fall, have a nice scheme
in course of incubation, which is nothing
less than an attempt to get a farmers'
ticket in the field. Cicero Lindley, tbe
republican president of the Illinois Farm
ers' Mutual Benefit association, has had a
long conference with his mightiness,
John Tanner, at Springfield, which lends
authenticity to tbe report. Lindley be
ing a republican politiciai, has very
adroitly confined the bulk of tbe mem
bership to the central and southern
countiea.wbose allegiance to democracy is
proverbial. By having an independent
farmers' ticket nominated Tanner and
Lindley expect to draw largely from the
democratic vote in Egypt, and thus save
tbe state to tbe republicans. It is hard
ly probable, however, that the Farmers'
Mutual Benefit association will fall into
this trap wbich has been so neatly baited.
The school election this yenr for choos
ing two members of tbe board of educa
tion, occurs on June 17. The retiring
members are President Thomas and Mr.
W. S. Knowlton. While the present
board is acknowledged to be tbe most
progressive in the way of providing new
and suitable buildings that has been
elected for several years past, it is also
conceded that it has allowed no retro
gression as to efficiency and excellence in
the management of our schools. Whether
Directors Thomas and Knowlton should
determine to stand for reelection or not.
it is due them to say that they both have
made creditable records on tbe board.
Toe following ditty is said to have
been composed by a disgusted republi
can, but It is none the less expressive of
the situation at Washington:
Wanny run the Snnday school;
l.evl runs the bar;
Wnny runs the White Home.
And, It. here we are.

Chicago, April 30. The arrangement be
tween the striking carpenters and the new
Bosses' association Monday niht was ap
parently only a truce, and is liable to be
broken at any moment. The Bos-ies' asso
ciation is striving hard to bring about per
manent peace, but until they establish the
fact that they comprise a majority of the
contractors, it is extremely doubt fulif they
will accomplish anything. The central
council of the carpenters held a meeting
yesterday afternoon, at which it was de
cided to con; inue the fight indefinitely on
the same lines that have already bean trav
Brsed. Unconditional Surrender Demanded.
President O'Connell, after the meeting,
said that there is no prospect of an imme
diate settlement. 'The fact is," he said,
"the men will consent to nothing but abso
lute surrender." The fact that the brick
layers, the masons, and other branches of
the building trades have been so seriously
affected by the carpenters' strike has
aroused such a sentiment in favor of the
latter that nothing short of a complete sur
render on the part of the bosses will ever
settle the differences at stake. These
trades are as much interested as though it
were their own strike, and will use their
Influence to make it successful.
'o Chance with the Old Bouses.
T The strikers have ceased to deal with the
old bosses' association, because they lie
tieve there is no chance to win a single
concession as long as the present condition
of affairs is maintained. President (oldie,
of the old Master Carpenter's association,
headed a committee of that body yesterday
on a call upon the mayor for protection to
non-union men. 1 hev presented a docu
ment to his honor making serious charges
against the strikers. Haying: "The strikers
have behaved outrageously toward our
workmen who are willing to work for us
their lives have been threatened: thev have
been intimidated, beaten with clubs and
brickbats, been waylaid when going and
coming from their work. Their homes
have been invaded and threats made to
burn them down if they continued to work
for us or if they did not join tbe union.
At least three of our workmen are lying at
death's door from being clubtied unmerci
fully by the strikers."
Z. The mayor promised to do the best he
f'.flect on the I.timher Market.
The carf-enters' strike has seriously af
fected the lumber market at this port.
Lumber vessels have leen lying at the
lumber market from four to live days,
there being no sale at any price, At pres
ent there are 10,000,0i0 feet of lumber on
the market. The stocks on hand in the
yards show an increase of 12.itM.iiit feet of
hardwood lumber over that of a year a,'o
and a decrease of 30,000,000 feet of pine.
Kuiiiont of Other Strike.
It was reported yesterday afternoon that
the 1,'jOO employes of the Mct'ormick Har
vesting Machine company were ready to
strike on May 1 for higher wages and eight
hours a day. Mr. Butler, the general
managerof t he company, stated to a I'nited
Press rejiorter last evening that there is no
foundation to the rumor; that the men
bad made no complaint, and as far as he
knew were perfectly satisfleiL Several of
the workmen, however, expressed
their belief that there would be
trouble on May 1. It is also re
ported that the 1.ni men employed by the
Malleable Iron works will strike May 1 for
the eight-hour day.
The Tacking- Houses.
Tbe stock yards laborers' union has sent
an ultimatum to the employers, demand
ing eight hours a day ami - 1-2 cents per
hour increase in wages. The packers will
make no reply to it. They have fully de
termined to meet a struggle which they
believe will be final. Chief Marsh, acting
under orders from Mayor Cregier, who has
had extensive interviews with representa
tives of the packers, has made full arrange
menu to throw an extraordinary force of
men into tbe yards at a moment' notii-e.
He has also given Armour, Swift, Morris,
and others permission to swear in sjieciiil
policemen, who will do guard duty in the
Immediate vicinity of houses that will en
deavor to run. Chief Marsh acknowledged
yesterday that the situation at the yards is
beginning to look very serious.
As to the Militia.
If there has been an order issued calling
upon the militia to hold themselves in
readiness in anticipation of trouble on
May 1 the officers know nothing of it. Col.
Zeigler, of the Second regiment, said
yesterday that he did not believe any such
order has been issued. "There is nothing
to apprehend," he continued, "from the
parade of the workingmen. The only dis
turbance at all likely to occur is from the
Socialist and Anarchist factions."
The Men (iulng Mad.
Four carpenters, whose minds have been
unbalanced by tbe strike, have been locked
up in the detention hospital. Thorwald
Johnson, a Swede, who was uu his way to
the old country, was taken off a Minneapo
lis train Monday night. He was then a
raving maniac, talking of nothing but
strike, unions, and eight hours. "I'll kill
ever- man that don't belong to the union,"
is the continual cry of John Fraydencahl,
another unfortunate carpenter, who was
brought into the hospital Tuesday morn
ing. Frank Black, of 777 Ridgeway ave
nue, is despondent, and wants to take his
life. He jumped into the river, but was
fished out. He is a non-union man, and
says the strikers will not let him work.
William Watz is still another victim. He
is one of the strikers, and is a carpenter by
trade. He talks of nothing but the strike
and the 1st of May.
Will Go to Work at 8 O'clock.
Milwaukee, April 30. None of the
union carpenters in Milwaukee will go to
work Thursday morning, May 1, before 8
o'clock. The evasive reply of the Contract
ing Carpenters association to the demand
of the uuions for the adoption of the eight
hour day left the matter in an unsettled
and unsatisfactory condition, and the men
have concluded to take the bull by the
horns and inaugurate the new order of
things without the assistance of their
Adopted Different Tactics.
PlTrsurKr,, April 80. The supreme
souncil of the National Federation of Kail

up a new list of grievances. This list will
be presented to the officials of the railroads
by committees of employes of the respec
tive railroads, and not by a general com
mittee representing the organization.

Marquis le More Arrested for Foment
Pakis, April 30. The well-known west
ern ranchman, Manjnis de More, who
lately has become the ardent exponent of
subversive doctrines, and posed as n act
ive friend of the laboring man amtngthe
Socialists of Belleville, was arreste 1 here
Monday, though not without difficulty.
Along the Rue Tilsit and down the Champs
Elysee, which was at the time crowdt 4 wit h
carriages and pedestrians returning from
the Bois, went the marquis and t is pur
suers. As the latter gained steacily on

and was arrested. The marquis was
examined and remanded yesterday. He is
treated as a first-class prisoner. He is

weeks ago he mysteriously disappeared,
leaving no clue to his probable fate. His

of an addition two-thirds as large as the
present building. The supervising archi
tect wrote to the senate committee that an
addition larger than was required could
be erect ed for the amount at first proposed
tluO.OtHl. Under the conditions the pres
ident belives the proposed appropriation
too large, and he therefore vetoes the bill.
Some Advice to Congress.
Following the statement of his reason
for the veto the president says: "The leg
islation for the erection of public build
ings has not pnaveded, so far as I can
trace it, upon any rules. Neither popula
tion nor the extent of the public business
transacted has always indicated the points
where public buildings should first be
built or the cost of the structures.
The bills are individual, and if compari
sons are attempted, the necessary element
of probable future growth is made to cov
er all apparent inequalities.
Other Matters To Be Considered.
'I am not unfriendly to a lilteral annual
expenditure for the erection of public build
ings where the safe and convenient trans
action of the public business demand it,
and the state of the revenues will permit.
But iu view of the (tending legisla
tion looking to a very large reduction, of
our revenues, and the urgency and neces
sity of a large expenditure in certain direc
tions, I am of the opinion that appropria
tions for the erection of public buildings
and all kindred expenditures .should lie
kept at the minimum until the effect of
other probable legislation can lw accurately
General s. Local Interests.
"The erection of a public building is
largely a matter of local interest and con
venience, while expenditures for enlarged
relief and recognition to the soldiers and
sailors of tlw war for the preservation of
the Union, for necessary coast defenses and
for the extension of our commerce with
other American states are of universal in
terest and involve considerations not of
convenience but of justh-e, honor, safety
and general prosrity."
MILLS "SASSES" THE SPEAKER.
The Texan Loom- His Wonted Ftuability
Washington Citv, April 30 When tlut
house had came to order yesterday Pierce
of Tennessee arose to what he claimed was
a question of jtersonal privilege, to deny a
statement of K.vans of Tennessee to the
effect that there bad Iteen election skulldug
gery in his 1 Pierce's district at the last elec
lion. The sM-aker said the matter did not
present a quest ion of itcrsonal privilege,
and Pierce sharply rescinded that it did.
The speaker said that no gentleman had
the right to make such a response to the
fitter Mills of Trias.
Smelling the battle from afar, as it were,
Mills of Texas t.mk a hand, and asked why
the speaker did not stop Kvans the other
day to which the sjtenker replied that he
was not present.
Mills Then you oiiJit not to stop the
gentleman from Tennessee.
The Speaker That does riot follow.
Mills-It d.tcs follow.
The Stt-aker The c hair does not desire
to enter into a personal controversy with
the gentleman, and be thinks that if the
gentleman will reflect, he will not persist
in this impropriety.
Mills I do not see the impropriety, when
one gentleman charges another wit h fraud.
The Sjteaker The gentleman from Texas
will please le in order.
Mills I am in order; and the sjieaker js
more out of order than the gentleman from
Texas. The ruling is'-simply an outrage.
The matter was then dropped.
THE DAY IN CONGRESS.
Passu ce of the Laud l ot fell lire Bill in the
senate Doings in the House.
Washington City. April 30 Among
the bills introduced in the senate yester
day was one for an annual pension of t,'.
to the widow of tivn. Mct'lcllan. The land
forfeiture bill was resumed, licrry stated
the Democratic itositioti to lie that where a
railway had not lieen completed in thespeei
fied time the land granted thereto should lie
forfeited even though the road was com
pleted. After a long debate the bill was
passed. The M Kitih-y customs administra
tion bill was then taken up. some amend
ments agreed to, others orb-ml. and pend
ing consideration the senate adjourned.
The house began the day with an exhi
bitictn of temjier by Mills, who flatly con
tradicted the chair on a question of order,
but finally subsided. The senate resolu
tion fvtr the irrigation of arid lands in the
valley of the Rio Grande was concurred in.
The bill removing the charge of desertion
against William Dawson was passed.
Dawson, in order to escajte the hardships
of prison life in Confederate prisons, en
listed in the Confederate army, but subse
quently returned to the Union army. The
post office appropriation bill was reported.
In committee the bill providing for the
classification of worsteds as woolens was
taken up and led to a long d' bate, the
Democrats opposing the bill and the Re
publicans advocating it. The bill was
finally reported to the house, but no quor
um was present at the vote on its passage
and the house adjourned.
Tensions for Army Nurse.
Washington- Citt, April 30. Miss Clara
Barton and Mrs.S.E. Fuller, secretary of the
National Relief Corps, each addressed the
bouse 'committee on invalid pensions yes
terday in support of the bill introduced in
the house by Mr. Cogswell for the relief of
women enrolled as army nurses. The bill
grants a pension of (14 ter mouth to all
womxa commissioned by the surgical de
partment of the United States during the
late war and who have been honorably
discharged, ami who, from the results of
such service aud the iulirmties of advanc
ing age, are unable to earn their own sup
port. Status of the Kilter Ouest ion.
Washington- Cut, April 30. it looks as
though the senate would pass the Teller,
free coinage bill or something very like it.
The attempt yesterday to get the caucus
committee together to pass on the silver
question was a failure, and the drift of
opinion in the senate is that a free coinage
bill will be passed there, the compromise
measure by the house aud then a confer
ence committee will fix up another com
promise. The free coinage men in the
senate want to get a measure through as
near their ideas as possible, but safe from
a presidential veto. ...
The Contention Over Behring Sea.
Washington Citt, April 30 There is
apparently good authority for the state
ment that the governments of the United
States and Great Britain are now farther
apart in their negotiations In regard to the
OF THE SPRING SEASON, . 1 890.
