Tbe Maasarbuseits tmrfsu of sutis-ie?
has compiled iotereting facts cnocerDine
tbe age of manufacturing establishments
in that state. Ii is thus reliably estab
lished tht in many lines the bulk of (lie
manufactured ptwducts of Massachusetts
is turned out by factories foot). led under
the low Uriff rrior to 160. Or.u estab
lighmer.t dates hack to 1636; three to
1639; fourteen others were founded be
fore the ttlose of the seventeenth century
thirty-fnur others between ITiio and 1776
and 119 imore before the close of John
Adams' administration. Of the 4 619 f ac
lories loun.1vi tx-tore l"ti and now in
operation. 1.3t6 were founded between
1840 and liS50 and 1.993 between 1S50
These older manufacturing establish'
menu, which, according to the St
Louis liepubltr, owe their origin to
.democratic policy, turn out more than
half of the wooUrn fc'o-Hls made in the
state; 28 per cent of the cotton goods.
78 per cent of the carpetintrs. 72 per cent
of the silk eoods. 79 per c.-nt of the print
and dye stuff. 50 per nt of the metallic
tirodiict, SO percent of the class. 76 per
cent of tbe flax, hemp and jute eoods
94 per rent of tbe agricultural imple
ments: 71 per rent of the clicks and
watches and 59 per cent of the straw
It is unfortunate that the statistics do
not show how many manufacturing es
tablishments founded under the demo
cratio policy of lowest taxes and greatest
trade activity have been suppressed by
the republican policv of trade restriction
through high taxes. The decadence of
the Massachusetts iron acd wood indus
tries, which were highly prosperous un
der tbe democratic policv. have been
marked under the restrictive tariff, and
similar causes have operated generally to
produce similar effects in ail lines of in
dustry and trade except in the small num
ber which escape taxes on raw material.
The manufacturing establishments
founded under the democratic policy are
indebted to it in no small measure for
what, compared with present conditions,
seems their extraordinary stability. They
based themselves on the tedrock I com
petition on merit. This is an advantage
that may be artificially destroyed, but
not artificially supplied. A hich tariff
takes it away and attempts to substitute
for it control of a single market without
regard to tbe quality of product. Under
the democratic policy .New England man
ufactures were founded and given op
portunity to increase under tbe natural
laws of - trade. Lnder tbe republican
policy this increase has been hampered
b? heavy taxes on raw material and the
consequent loss of the foreign market
until now, when New England is about
to cease to be the American manufacture

Adopted Capital Newa Notea.
Washington Citt, June 21. The big
silver fight in tbe house, which ended
Thursday night with a parliamentary tri
umph for the ftee coinage men, was re
newed yesterday the moment the chap
Iain's prayer was ended. During the
nis'bt telegrams were flying all over the
east summoning absentees of both parties
for it was generally understood that yes
terday was to witness the struggle to the
finish. The galleries were well filled,
even before the house beiritn its session.
and the chaplain prayed in the presence of
more members than have greeted him for
a month. Several free coinage senators,
among them Jones of Kevada and Teller
of Colorado, were on the floor at the very
beginning, eaeerly watching every point
of the struggle.
The Fia-ht Open. Without Ielay.
The ball opened with a motion from
McKinley to approve the journal of
Wednesday and upon that he demanded
the previous question. Mills insisted upon
adding the words "as amended' to the
motion and they were so included. Then
McKinley beitan a parliamentary fiuht to
delay the final action on approval of the
journal -as amended. but the odds Were
against him: the same knot of free silver
Republicans who had agisted the Demo
crats Thursday voted with the latter yes
terday and every motion McKinley made
was negatived, and the linal result was
the adoption of the motion to approve 'as
amended." This vote came near resulting
in a tie. but the Democrats induced Dir
can of Siuth Carolina, who had voted
"no," to chance Lis vote and the announce
ment was yeas, 1:52; nays, i;w.
Next Thing in Order.
Then followed the reading of journal.
Meanwhile the speaker and McKinley
eagerly watched the clock, very anxions
for 1. A ' to arrive, at which time the train
containing the Pennsylvaniatis was due
from the wet.
When the journal was read Bland asked
if it w as now in order to call up bills
from the speaker's table.
"Conference bills are first in order," said
the speaker, and the conference report on
the anti-trust bill was presented, thus
shunting the whole silver question off on
a side track until the ct inference report on
the anti trust bill had been adopted.
Bland Returns to the ( h.rre.
This accomplished. Bland again bepan
the fiirlit to have a vote on the silver bill;
but riht there he struck a snatt. Not
withstanding the votes of the two days
the status of the silver bill seemed just as
uncertain as ever. Bland claimed that it
was on the speaker's table, and could 1
The speaker asked whether supposing
that the bill was found to be on the speak
er's table it did not then come up only
in the regular order of precedence. Bland
replied that he hud demanded the regular
order when he iutriuced his resolut ion
that regular order involved the considera
tion of the cenate bills on the speaker's
The Resolution Modified.
The speaker said that he did not so un
derstand the gentleman's motion. Can
non asked that the speaker rule upon the
motion. The speaker said he did not think
that the resolution was in order now. Mc
Millin of Tennessee maintained that there
was no authority for Conger's action in
taking possession of a bill which the house
had dec lared had not been referred to his
Bland mollified the lancuaee of his res
olution, so as to direct that the sieaker,
uudi-r Knle 24. Jay matters on his table,
including the silver bill, before the house
Tryina to Simplify Matters.
The sjieaker said that perhaps be could
simplify tbe matter a little, and suggested
to Bland that he understood his wish to
be simply to tret at this matter when it
would naturally come up. supposing that
it was upon the sieaker'a table (not pass
ing npon the matter at thi9 time). What
the chair proposed to do was that, when
the bill or its hiatus, whatever it might
be, was reached, it should be brought he
fore the house. But the gentleman did
not seem to consider that this was Friday
private bill day and that private bills
alone were in order.
Springer Makes an Opening.
Springer of Illinois wished to know
when tbe chair might be expected to de
cide where the biil was.
The Speaker Whenever the bill would
be in order, providing that the views of
the other side were correct (about which
the chair presents no opinion i, because 'lie
does not think it is the proper time.
As Bland and Springer finally insisted
on a specific ruling the speaker finally
ruled that Bland's resolution (to proceed
to the consideration of the silver bill) was
not in order under the rules. Then Bland
apjiealed from the decision, bnt before the
question was decided the hour forth
regular Friday recess arrived.
THE DOINGS IN CONGRESS.
Sundry Civil Bill rwd by the Senate -Honse
Washington Citt, June 21. A bill was
introduced in the senate yesterday appro
priating tlOO.UOO for a public building at
Jackson, Mich. After some other miscel
laneous business the-sundry civil bill was
resumed and completed in .committee of
the whole. The bill being reported to the
senate, Stewart precipitated a long
debate by . moving to strike out the
item for the executive officer of the
geological survey. (Stewart is making
war on Ma j. -Powell over the irrigation
business.) Powell was defended by la
galls. Teller, Piatt and others, while Ed
munds seemed inclined to find fault.
Stewart finally withdrew his amendment
and the bill was passed. Edmunds offered
a resolution for a committee of seven to
consider the administrative service of tbe
senate and report a plan for efficieury and
economy. Tbe senate tfeen adjourned.
The house resumed tbe fight over the
silver bill and after every parliamentary
resource had lieen exhausted in an at
tempt to defeat the move, the journal as
amended by Mills resolution of Thursday
waa approved 132 to 130. The question
of what should next 1 considered thea
tame up mu.i ilnd wanted to take the
silver bill from the table and vote on it,
but the speaker decided that the anti-trust
bill had the right of way and tbe
conference report thereon was adopted.
After some more debate on the question
as to w hether the silver bill would be
taken up, during which the speaker re
fused to rale whether tbe bill was or was
not on the table, but ruled that its con nid
ation at this time was not in order, an at
tempt to adjourn was made, but just as it
was defeated the hour of 5 o clock ar
rived, and .recess waa taken to 8 p. rn.
The evening session did nothing because a
quorum was not present.
Carliale Affninat Free Coinage.
Washington Citt, June 2L Senator
Carlisle says he did not vote in the senate
on the final passage of the silver bill be
cause, he could not conscientiously vote for
the bill as it was amended, and if anybody
can make capital oat of his action in this
connection they are at liberty to do so. Ha
said he was aware that certain persona
were disposed to ceusure him because he
did not jump at the crack of the party
whip and rush headlong into the arms of.
the mine owners who are anxious to dis
pose of their products.

Washington Citt, June 2L Wiile the

the weather bureau had grown us to

A CHICAGO BANK IN TROUBLE.
The Park National Shnt l"p by Orders
from Washington City.
Chicago, June 21. The deposit jrs and
others who had business with the Park Na
tional bank in this city were strprised
yesterday morning to find the door closed,
and the concern in the hands of Bf.nk Ex
aminer Sturge. It was impossible to
learn the reason of the suspension from
any of the officers, but business n en said
they did not look upon the troub e as a
failure, although the bank ha 1 been
looked upon with suspicion for some
weeks. The depositors were not fo hope
ful, however, most of those having claims
being depositors of small amounts, the
heavy ones having withdrawn theirmoney
before the suspension.
An Explanation of the Trouhle.
A telegram from Washington City says
the currency comptroller expla ns the
matter by saying that the suspension is
the result of examination of the bank's
affairs, which showed that much of its as
sets was of a questionable character; the
bank has made loans on doubtful securi
ty, and some of its officers are he vy bor
rowers. He says a receiver will be ap
pointed unless there is change of manage
ment and a liberal contribution f new
capital to put :be bank on a sound finan
THE GALLANT OLD KEARSARGE.
She Rem9.bent the Day That She Licked
New York, June 21. Twenty-sit years
aco Thursday the United States ship
Kearsarge, Capt. John A. Winslow,
whipped the Confederate steamer Ala
bama, Capt. Seniiues, so badly that the
latter vessel, after a sixty-two minute en
gagement, struck her colors and sank to
the bottom of the sea. This is the reason
why the Kearsarge was decked ell over
with the stars and stripes Thursday as she
lay at the Cob dock in the Brookl) n navy
yard. Every year the Kearsare cele
brates the event.
The Cinna That Did the Bn.lnea.
Tbe old Kearsarge is not withot t relics
of the battle, for she still carries the old
gun that launched the fatal shot into the
.Manama's stern post, and also.l he gun
that crippled the enemy's bow at the
water line. The former gun is lovingly
called the "Winslow, in honor of the
commander, and the latter the 'Thorn
ton," in honor of the executive officer.
The old ensigu that was hoisted to the
Kearsarge's truck when the battle began
now drapes the walls of the sean anship
building at the United States Naval
academy a mute emblem of patriotic
ardor upon which the yonap'ters gaze

There have been no rapping, or sound

All reports that the rescuers have heard
from the unfortunates have been without
foundation and sensational. Everybody

that the men will be taken out alive, but

THE WORLD'S FAIR SITE.
It Will Probably Be the lake Front Park
Chicago. June 21. Owen F. Al lis has
returned from New York, and yesterday
he reported to the world's fair com
mittee on buildings and grounds the
result of the negotiations batween
himself. E. S. Pike, and the Illi
nois Central directors. The con.mittee
then considered the desirability of the va
rious sites. They finally arrived at a
unanimous conclusion and la e' re
ported to tbe meeting of direc
tors. The directors then con -tillered
tbe report, and decided in favor of the
Lake Front park, as recommended by the
committee, conditioned upon removing
all the difficulties. The scheme involves
the filling up of the harbor for . LIOO feet
out into the lake, and if consummated
will leave Chicago a magnificent park in
the front of tbe city. Tbe site is by long
odds the best for tbe purpose, if availa

An Ohio Town That Believes in "Old
New Yoke, June 21. A special to The
Tribune from Steubenville, O., tays: A
riot was prevented Wednesday at the
small town of New Cumberland, ai r miles
above this city, by the decisive action of
the authorities. Eugene Robinson is the
owner of a show boat, which goes ip and
down tbe river giving exhibitions in the
mall towns. The boat while moired at
this village put among a lot of foreign
flags the rebel flag. Inside of teii min
utes the whole town was out.
S 1 It Had to Come Down.
As the crowd was growing menacing
the town authorities waited on the mana
ger of the show and requested bicitore
move his flags. He flatly refused lit first,
but after a long discussion, during which
time the crowd was asking that the mana
ger be brought out and beaten, be con
sented and hauled the flags down, utting
up small flags of national colors.

Ranks Attempt at Stampede That
Didn't W ork.
New York. June 2L Wednesday Ter
ence V. Powderly wrote to Samuel Uoiu
pers that a meeting of the Knights of
Labor would be held in Cooier Union Fri
day night at which Gompers was invited
to be present, and hear what the knights
had to say in refutation of the charges
the Federation of Labor has been making
against the knights. Gompcrs replied
saying that he would accept the "chal
lenge." Powderly wrote again saying
that there was no challenge, but that
Gompers would lie permitted to reply to
auy statements which might 1 made to
which he took exception. The letters were
published and the prospect of hearing an
exchange of civilities between Powderly
and Gompers attracted a large crowd to
Cooper Union last night more people
in fact that could get in.
Some Preliminary Remark.
The executive board of the K. of L ap
peared on the platform at 8 o'clock. Pow
derly introduced George Warner, of Dis
trict assembly 2-"3, as chairman. Alex
ander Wright, of the executive board, was
the first speaker. After briefly explain
ing tbe object of the meeting, namely, to
dicuss the false accusations made against
the knights by the Federation of Lalor,
he introduced Powderly, who was greeted
with loud applause. Powderly said he
regretted the necessity of this meeting.
After reading Gompers letter he invited
Warner to take the platform. Warner
said that the board, after considering the
letter, had decided that as this was a reg
ular meeting called for a specific purpose,
it would not be proper to adopt Uompera'
suggestion to give that gentleman half
the time of the meeting for a purpose not
contemplated in the calL
Attempt to Stampede the Meeting.
At this point a body of alvut 200 men
rose as if by pre-arrangement and left the
hall. Powderly said: "All who desire to
leave will please do so now, as there are
hundreds outside who cannot get in."
This pertinent and palpably true state
ment was received with great cheering,
and the effort of the seceders to break up
the meeting fell flat. In a moment, the
hall was packed as full as liefore. When
quiet was restored Powderly addressed the
meeting. He referred to certain insinua
tions made against the management of
the kuights. He denied that he was in
ls5 opposed to the eight-hour principle.
He was opposed, however, to certain meth
ods of conducting an eight-hour move
ment. He believed iu practical measures.
The Retort Invidious.
"Geese and serpents hiss; we are fight
ing them right aloug." said the seaker.
(A voice: "We're working people here."
"Here, too," rejoined Powderly. "It is a
principle of our order that the man works
with his brain or his jaw is a laUirer as
well as he who works with bis hands.'
Applause. Powderly then read docu
ments showing that the knitihls were the
first to suggest the eight hour principle.
At the St. Louis convention they fixed
May 1, ls-ai, as the date for it. -This be
ing so, how could thirty-eight men seak
for the whole crowd?" asked Powderly.
There was deafening applause at this ref
erence to the federation.
The Oueollon of Membership.
Powderly. referring to the future policy
of the knights, said they wou Id continue
in the eight-hour movement to help
those who are w illing to help themselves.
He then went into an analysis of the state
ment of membership of the federation
and asserted that the large apparent
memtiership was made up by claitiiin

They were knights. The carpenters and
joiners were on the list as 2,07l memliers.
He did not know how the fact was. A
voice "They don't belong fo them.

After going through the list in this way,
Powderly coucluded: "I have taken 100.
toj from their claim of 4".,0i), including
the 2."i,i"" locomotive engineers which they
claimed. If I were to send out such a
lying statement about our membership,
what would our critics say?" The speaker
then spoke of differences of met hod be
tween the two organ iiat ions. He said the
first trouble letween them occurred when
the knights succeeded in having the wages
of cigarmakers increased. Powderly de
clared that all workingmeu should stand
Can Follow aa Well aa Lead.
He was ready to resign in favor of Gom
pers if the workingmen of the country
would unite under him as a leader. -I
know as well how to follow as to lead."
(Applause.) "The knights have long
borne insult and misrepresentation in si
lence. Hereafter, as part of their duty to
labor, they willreseut insult and strike
back when attacked." Great applause.
While the big meeting was in progress
there was au overflow meeting outside the
hall, which was addressed by T. B. Mc
Quire, T. P. Quinn and J. F. IJuinn.
(tampers Chances Insincerity.
Gompers. after receiving Powderly's let
ter, replied to the effect that he believed
Powderly never expected his t Powderly's)
challenge to be accepted; or, if accept,
the idea was to entrap him (Gompers) into
a packed meeting. If Gompers had not
construed the letter as a challenge, and
had not accepted it, the knighta would
have claim d that it was a challenge, and
that it had not been met. He accused
Powderly of being a pettifogger and
double dealer. Goinptrs added that he
was ready at the meeting or anywhereelse
to repeat and prove all that he had ever
said about rhe knights, and he would at
tend the meeting under the conditions
named in his letter of Thursday, if noti
fied of their acceptance. Gompers was
not at the meeting.

A Vstsd oath.
From Keokuk, Ia Democrat.
August, 1887. was a noted month. It
gave extreme beat and extreme cold, the
results of which were disastrous to the
public health. Cases of colic, cholera
morbus and diarrhoea were abundant and
there were numerous calls at the drug
stores for Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy. Druggists of
this city tell ns that Ibis remedy baa been
more frequently called for during the
past month than any other preparation,
and that it has proven a panacea for the
very, worst cases. Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy is a mer
itorious medicinal preparation for all
summer complaints for which it is recom
mended, and grows in popularity in this
city and vicinity. Tbe sales are increase
ing rapidly and wonderful cares are re
ported, bold by Baric & Bahnsen. '
