Wasuiixgtox City, June 28. The mem
bers of the United States senate were sur
prised yesterday morning on picking up
The Congressional Record to find on the
first page and the pages immediately fol
lowing, nearly twenty-eight columns of a
speech supposed to have been delivered by
Senator Call before the senate on J une 3,
on a qnestion of privilege "in reply to cer
tain charges against him contained, in a
pamphlet by W. D. Chipley sent to each
senator." The remarks actually delivered
on that occasion would have occupied less
than a column of The Record. Call had
obtained from the senate, however, per
mission to print some papers with his re
marks, and the remarks had been with
held for revision that the papers referred
to might be incorporated with them.
Made Some Novel Comparisons.
The most remarkable part of the addi
tion of the twenty-seven columns made by
Call to his original remarks was a table in
which he made comparison of his work in
the senate during the Fiftieth congress
with that of other senators. Among the
charges made by Chipley in his pamphlet
was one that Call had introduced a great
many bills in congress very few .of which
had become laws. In answer to this charge,
Call had printed in The Kecord a state
ment of all the bills introduced by him,
with the fate of each, and then, iu addi
tion to this, a table showing the number
of bills introduced by each other member
of the senate, and the proportion which
tirrat on Headlines.
Throughout Call's statement are striking
headlines (presumably written by hinr
self), of which the followiug are samples:
"Falsehoods of hired correspondents of
land grant agents;" "Senator Call shows
thBt he has been rightfully connected
with all public enterprise, "Mr. Chip-
ley as a railroad and land grant lobby
ist;" hat shall be said of the writer of
the Chipley -Wales pamphlet?; "Degrad
lng spectacle;" "Senator Call's services
have been for the public good."
The Senators Waxed Wroth.
The surprise of the senators at this
statement in the record was followed iu
some cases by anger, aud the matter was
discussed at great length before the meet
ing of the senate. It was determined to
call Call to account for what was regarded
by a great many members of the senate as
an unwarranted nse of a privilege which
is very freely accorded senators. Accord
ingly when Call took the floor to address
the senate on his Cuban resolution in ac
cordance with a notice heretofore given,
Edmunds and Sherman both arose to
move to close the doors. When the doors
had been closed the matter was taken up
and discusned rather freely, but the sen
sation of the day took place after the
doors were reopened, when Inxalls took
the floor and -moved an inquiry by the
Call Explains His Action.
Call said there was no ground for the
resolution; that he had asked leave of the
senate on the 2d of June last to print ex
tracts from The Record in vindication of
his career in the senate, in response to a
pamphlet attacking bim; and that was all
he had done to-day. The libel to which he
had been replying bad contained a state
ment of bills which he had introduced in
the senate, and which had not become law.
At his leisure he had prepared a state
ment in his own vindication and had sub
mitted it to a member of the committee on
printing Gorman who bad informed him
that there was no impropriety whatever in
having it published.
Ingalls Makes a Grave Chsrg.
Ingalls The senator from Florida has, in
my judgment, not only grossly violated
and abused the privileges of the senate,
but he has deliberately falsified the record
of what occurred on the day when the
transaction took place.
Here Butler called Ingalls to order, and
the latter withdrew the words "deliberately
falsified" and substituted "changed the
record." Call wanted Ingalls given leave
to go on, hut Butler said Call was not
alone involved the dignity ot the senate
must lie considered. Ingalls then pro
ceeded, and said that Call had !een given
leave to insert certain matter in The Rec
ord, "as an appendix," but had left out
that phrase entirely, so as to make it ap
pear that he had leave to print this mass
of material, which never was uttered, and
which he never obtained leave to insert:
The Comparisons Were Odious.
Ingalls then went on to say: "But I
should not have complained if the senator
from- Florida had not seen fit, in his own
attenipti 1 vindication, to prepare what
he calls a tabulated abstract which he
has inserted here, in which he compares
the relative services of members of this
body to his own, and in many cases to
their detriment. I have no hesitation in
saying that the table is incorrect in many
important particulars. He has taken the
trouble to make a history of my conduct
during the Fiftieth congress, showing that
I had introduced forty-four bills, of which
one pension bill became a law and two
others omitting all reference to the fact
that throughout the whole of that con
gress I was the presiding officer of this
The Florida Stan's Ketnrt.
Ingalls continued by insisting that Call
had not done what he had obtained leave
to do, but had mutilated Xlie Kecord and
set a very pernicious precedent. Call re
torted on Ingalls as follows, in the course
ot his reply: "How small the man, how
bitter the malevolence, bow mean the
character that could find in such a cir
cumstance the willingness to accuse an
other senator of falsifying The llecord,"
and closed with the words: "I should de
mand of him that he show the courage of
a man and not the cowardice of a slan

WAsnixoTON City, June 2(5. A bill was
passed in the senate yesterday authorizing
the erection of a hotel for colored people
on the government reservation at Fortress
Monroe. Call arose to address the senate
on hU resolution looking to the indepen
dence of Cuba, but a motion to go into
executive session was carried, and then
Call didn't want to speak. He desired to
make a' public address, and so offered to
withdraw bis resolution. The senate
soon opened the doors, and Ingalls
offered a resolution instructing the privi
leges and elections committee to inquire
into a brench of senate privilege of which
Call had been guilty in printing in The
Congressional Record twenty-eight col
umns of speech referring to an attack
made upon hlm By a Florida
man. A decidedly tart debate took dace,
in which Call's action was roundly de
nounced as a ktoss violation of privilege.
bnt the resolution went over and tbs Wy
oming statehood bill was taken u p, but
without action tie senate adjourned.
The house agreed to the conferen ce re
port on the naval appropriation bilL and

Sioux City, la , June 26. The Repub

at 11 o'clock yesterday morning, and a
temporary organizatiou perfected. In
tbe address of Temporary Chairman
Weaver Speaker Reed was alluded to as
"glorious Tom Reed," and the reference
was loudly applauded. -There were sev
eral sharp contests in district caucuses
over the appointment of members of the
committee on resolutions. George G.

taries, Ora Williams, of Woodbury; Paul
McLain, of Cass; J. R. Burke, of Jasper;
C. W. Crim, of Emmet.
Chairman Wright's Speech.
Chairman Wright was greeted with
hearty applause. He said that they were
here as Republicans to nominate a ticket
and to declare anew the principles of the
great party to which they belonged. It
would not he difficult to discharge the
first duty, as there were so mauy good
names presented; ns to the latter, it is al
ways expedient to lie right, but not always
right to be expedient. I-et the platform
be one of principle and not one to catch
votes. No one but an inspired idiot would
believe the accidental defeat of the party
last year meant defeat this year. The
Kepnblicans had no reason to hide their i
past and there would be no funeral serv
ices over the history of the party. He was
for practical prohibition, and would like
to see every saloon driven from the state,

Nominations for Ofllre.
The convention being ready for the real
bnsiness of the day the following were
named for secretary of state: W. M. Mc
Farland, of Emmet; C. S. Byrkit, of Ap
panoose, and Z. A. Church, of Greene
county. The first formal ballot resulted:
McFarland, 47!)'-,-; Byrkit, 8T6 3-3; Church,
73. H. S. Kneed ler, 30. The second ballot
gave McFarland 53; Byrkit, 372; Church,

clared the nominee. The rest of the ticket
is as follows: Auditor, J. A. Lyons; treas
urer, Gen. Byron A. Beason; judge of the
supreme court, James H. Rothrock; su
preme court clerk, G. B. Pray (present in
cumbent); court reporter, W. B. Ray
mond; attorney general, John Y. Stoue;
railway commissioner, Capt. J. W. Luke,
of Franklin county.
The Flatfonn Declaration.
During the afternoon the commiitee on
resolutions had a protracted struggle over
the liquor plank of the platform, but the
differences were arranged finally, and the
document presented to the convention. It
was enthusiastically adopted. It reaffirms
devotion to the principles of the national
Republican party, and makes no other test
of fealty to the party in Iowa. The ad
ministration of Harrison is indorsed, and
tbe platform declares for the American
principle of protection; favors such an
expansion of currency as will meet the
needs of growing population; favors legis
lation to utilize as money the entire silver
product of the country: desires justice for
all classes, especially farmers; opposes ef
forts to nullify the inter-state commerce
law; sympathy is declared for the people
of the sout h oppressed by monopolies fos
tered by Democratic state govern ments;
approves pension legislation, and ex
presses abhorrence for twists.
The Hallway Plank.
The plank referring to the railway qnes
tion congratulates the people "upon the
measure of success attained in the con
test in this state in behalf of the just legal
control of the railway corporations doing
business in this state; and we appeal to
the people to see to it that there be no re
cession in the just policy of the state in
As to the Llqnor Onetion
Coming to the lirjnor question the plat
form says: "We declare against compro
mise with the saloon and stand by the
people of this state in their hostility to Its
existence, spread, and power. We favor
such legislation on the part of congress as
shall protect the police power of the states
in their efforts to regulate, confine, or pro
hibit the public bar; and for approval of
the work and record of the U-publican
party of this state in tbe great cause of
temperance, involving the public peace
and the safety of the government, we ap
peal confidently to the electors of Iowa."
A Plan of Organisation.
This completed the work of the conven
tion with the exception of the adoption at
tbe recommendation of the state commit
tee of a plan of central organizations. The
plan gives the committee power to take
the local campaigns in the several coun
ties under its management. After this
plan of organization had been adopted.

but before it was announced a stampede
was started for Delamater, and the votes
changed so rapidly that a motion to make
it nnan'muis was carried with a rush,
and another recess was taken.
Balance of the Ticket.
Upon reassembling E. K. Martin, L. A.
Watres, and J. A. M. Passamore were nom
inated for lihutenant governor, and the
ballot resulted in favor of Watres. Thomas
J. Stewart was renominated by acclama
tion for secretary of state. Gen. Hastings
was elected chairman of the state central
committee, but upon declining W. H.

The declaration of principles begins with
a eulogy and full indorsement of Senator
Qny, expresses gratitude for his match
less services during the national campaign
of 18S8, and commends his bearing under
"the slanders which his successful leader
ship has purchased for him;" favors a na

law; indorses the McKinley tariff blll.and
laws restricting immigration; urges the
passage of an "original package" law, and
favors ballot and local taxation reform.

roads entering the city and the forcible
language of the strikers' committeemen,
who openly declared that unless Superin
tendent Russell was removed within two
days every road in the city would be tied
np and every possible effort made to en
force the order.
A Skirmishing Party Sent Out,
During the forenoon the strikers sent
out a committee on an expedition which
had for its object the stoppage of the
handling of traffic for the Illinois Cen
tral and its tenant, the 'Big Four," by the
Chicago and Eastern llltnois.and Wabash
The Big Four, or Kankakee line, comes
into Chicago from Kankakee, sixty miles
away, over Illinois Central tracks, and
the switching is done, when done at all,
by the striking switchmen. It was deter
mined to thwart this attempt of the ta
booed lines to do business over other lines
at once. Aecfirdingly a delegation, head
ed by Chairman Caldwell, of the griev
ance committee, went to Dearborn sta
tion, and passed into the yards.
They Scratched Their Palms.
The striking committee went down into
the yard. They stopped in front of the
first switching engine they met. It bad
just been attached to a long string of cars.
The engine and switching crews were both
on board. The strikers stoped and began
scratching the palms of their hands. With
vociferous profanity the switchmen sprang
from the engine and started for tbe strik
ers, who still st ood scratching the palms
of their bands.
"Why are you calling us scabs?" they
cried as they ran toward tbe delegation.
"You are handling scab freight off the
Big Four and Illinois Central lines," was
the only reply. But it was enough.
Left the Bananas to Hot.
"Cut off that engine!" shouted the fore
man of the switching crew. And then to
the strikers, "Get aboard, boys." An in
stant later the engine fled down the track,
leaving its train behind. One crew had in
their train about a dozen cars loaded with
bananas. These cars were cut out of the
train and thrown on to a side track be
tween two occupied tracks and a long line
of empty cars were then thrown upon the
track between them and the switch. This
would completely lock them in where they
could not be moved or unloaded. This
was kept up until every employe on the
trains had pledged bim-elf that no Illinois
Central cars would be handled.
Stopped a Train at Centralia.
CESTUALIA, Ills., June 36. An attempt
was made last eveuing to run out a train
over the Illinois Central. An engine, a
flat car and a caboose were coupled to
gether, U. C. Young taking the engine,
while Trair.mastr Higgins acted as con
ductor. The engine had scarcely started
when a switch whs turned against it by
a mob, the pins pulled ami the effort de
feated. Young ran his engiue back to the
roundhouse, and no further attempt to
move trains was made.

A Holed Month.
From Keokuk, la.. Democrat.
August, 1887, waa 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 Itemed. Druggists of
this city tell us that this remedy has been
more frequently called for during the
past month than any other preparation,
and that it has proven a panacea for tbe
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. The sales are tacreas
ing rapidly and wonderful cures are re
ported. Bold by Ham & Bahnsen. -
