Washington Citt. June 27. The de
bate on the national election bill began in
the house of representatives yesterday and
will rage with great vigor doubtless until
ths gag of t he previous question is applied
July 3. As six days of eloquence will have
been devoted to the illumination of the
subjoct by that time, it would seem that
the subject will have been pretty well ex
hausted and that pretty much all that can
be said pro and con will have been said.
Lodge of Massachusetts, who is the author
in most part of the measure, took the
floor to give, it the send-off. The bill, he
said, did nothing in a corner. Every step
in the elections under it would be taken
in the open light of day. The point he
urged with the greatest vigor was that
whether justified or not there was a gen
eral suspicion of the fairness of elections
in certain parts of the country. The elec
tions might be fair, but they should be
known to be so, and this bill would re
move suspicion if they were so and stop
the corruption if it existed.
Origin of Such Legislation.
He gave the origin of the law now on
the statute lxviks, and said this bill was
nothing more than an extension of that
law. The first election bill had its or
igin in the frauds in New York in 1870
and 1871, where in one ward, after throw
ing out all the other votes, the Democratic
vote alone was fourteen times greater
than the total population of the ward
men, women and children. He referred
to the great discrepancy existing between
the mimler of votes it takes to elect a
congressman in the north and some of
southern stHtes, averaging less than 15,000
in the south to over 30,110 iu the north.
and intimated that there must be a "nig
ger in the woodpile." What he wanted
was the truth, and this bill would bring
Hemphill Iteplie to Lodge.
Hemphill of South Carolina made an ar
gument to prove the bill unconstitutional.
sectional and inefficient the latter be
cause if a United States inspector should
be corrupted and return a Democrat, he
could not be removed. That had not oc
curred to the gentleman from Massachu-
setts. There was no more iniquitous pro
vision in the bill than that which pro
vided for the appointment of an unnum
bered force of men absolutely under the
direction of the supervisor. He declared
that partisanship among officeholders in
the south was what wis the matter, and
not the elections; that a "new north" was
needed, and that the confession that there
was a general belief that corruption ex
isted was most humiliating.
'orttiern Oerrymanders Drnoanrml.
He ridiculed the Republican cry of "A
1 free ballot and a fair count," and said that
it was useless to talk about a free ballot
in Kansas wbeu the state had been so ger
rymandered that the 147,000 Democrats
there had never been represented in the
house. He referred to the peculiarities of
districting which made it take more votes
in California, Illinois, and other states to
send a Democrat to congress than to send
a Republican. He charged that New York
and Connecticut were both misrepresented
on the floor of the senate, because both of
them really were Democratic.
A Significant Conclusion.
In conclusion Hemphill said: "We

do not hesitate to say that the colored man

Rowell of Illinois said that it was the
conviction that every man's ballot counted
one at the polls that made this a govern
ment of thu people. He thought there was
no question of the power of congress to en
act this law or of the necessity of using
that power. The number was increasing
of those who believed Mr. Cleveland was
counted in six years ago. He believed the
black, vote was suppressed in the south
and it was the expressed intention of the
men who controlled that section that the
suppression should continue.

could the most universal absence from the

The day's debate was closed by Lehl

states let alone in the matter, and Tucker,
who said the way to correct fraud was by

BLAINE'S RECIPROCITY IDEA.
Views of Western Cnngrcmen Generally
Washington City, June 27. The
strongest bentiment in favor of Blaine's
reciprocity ' proposition seems to dwell
with the members of the house of repre
sentatives from the middle and western
states. Payson of Illinois said yesterday
that the western representatives were
largely in favor of the proposition as em
bodied in the amendment offered by Hale
in the senate. Payson attended an In
formal meeting of western members a few
days ago, and he said there was a supris
ing unanimity of opinion expressed there
in favor of Hale's amendment. "Speak
ing for myself," he said, "I am heartily in
favor of some reciprocity measure." He
thought that the matter would be pushed

Rowell of Illinois said that be did not
see how the recommendations coul I be
adopted at this time. He had always been
in favor of going a great way with South
American nations in the matter of reci
procity, but at the present time there were
too many conflicting relations between
American nations to make the cnlnina
tion of Blaine's idea speedily poa tibia.
Dorsey of Nebraska, though favoring the
idea, thought it was too late to ado it it
this session, and McCutcheon of Mict igan
expressed pretty much the same view

In the house several bills were passed.
one of them being a bill to allow first- and
second class postoftice clerks fifteen days'
leave of absence each year. Then the icreat
debate on the national election bill began,
JjOdge of Massachusetts having charge of
the bill and opening the debate. He said
the bill was only an extension of th- law
already on the statute books; declared that
its constitutionality was unassailable and
gave figures to show that elections for
members of congress were notorious cor
rupt in the south. Hemphill of couth
Carolina said the bill was unconstitu

north was unfair in its apportionment for
members of congress. Rowell spoks for

sentative Wilson of Washington, a died
on Indian Commissioner Morgan yester
day in regard to Superintendent Abbott,
of the Indian school at the Yakima
agency. Abbott is from Rhode Island,
and was appointed by Gen. Morgan, and
the latter evinced no surprise when Wil
son told him that Abbott was a Dimo
crat, and ought to give place to some ijood
man who was a Republican. In order that
the commissioner might not be at a loss
to get someone to fill Mr. Abbott's place,
Wilson suggested a name and urged the
appointment. Gen. Morgan, however, did
not want to abandon hia friend, and so he
stood out in his defense. A deliate en-tued
in which neither party became convinced,
and Wilson grew very angry. The i lter
view terminated rather abruptly, and Wil
son withdrew, announcing his indention
to carry the matter to Secretary Noble.

Chicago, June 27. For the past week
the World's fair commissioners appointed
for the several states have been gathering
in this city to hold a meeting for organi
sation purposes, and they were nearly all
present yesterday, when the first meeting
was held. Among the well-known men
present were ex-Congressman John T.

A meeting for Business
The meeting took place at the Grand

ing, of this city. John T. Harris, of Vir
ginia, was chosen temporary chairman;
tv v iTlce, or Kansas, temporary secre

right were seated Chief Justice Fuller,
Judge GreRham, M. H. De Young (of San

(of Virginia), and on his left Bishop Fal

L. Elkins (of Philadelphia), ex-Governor
Bullock (of Massachusetts), and A.
B. Andrews (of New York). At the other
tables every railroad entering the city,
every bank and manufacturing industry,
and all the professions were represented.
The floral decorations of the hall were of
the most elaborate and artistic character.
Judtfe Thoman's Welcome
Nearly three hours were occupied in dis
cussing the menu of ten courses and it
was close upon 11 o'clock when Judge
Thoman rapiwd for order. In a brief ad
dress, which was enthusiastically ap
plauded, he welcomed the commissioners
to the city. The coming fair, he said.
would mark an epoch in the history of the
universe; and its success depended upon
the wisdom and energy of those surround
ing him. He congratulated them upon
the fact that every state and territory was
represented; that for the good of this en
terprise north and south had come to
gether, all working for one common ob
ject, and under one flag.
A Letter from the President.
The following letter from President
Harrison, dated June 23, was then read;
I am in receipt of the invitation on be
half of the citizens of Chicago to attend a
reception and banquet to be given on the
evening of the 26th inst. to the United
States commissioners of the World's Col
umbian exposition. It will be impossible
for me to be present, but I will avail my
self of the opportunity to express my deep
interest in the success of the exposition,
aud my sincere hope that the commission
era on the part of the United States will
not fail to co-operate diligently and in the
most liberal spirit with the local man
agers in everything calculated to make
this in fact, as well as in name, a world's
A Hint to the Old World.
John Boyd Thatcher, of New York, re
sponded to the toast of "The Relations of
the World's Columbian Exposition to In
ternational Unity." He said that within
the walls of Chicago in 181)3 Germany
might obtain from Great Britain a nobler
blessing than Heligoland, and England
might find a thoughtexpresaed into form
by the uert lingers or some German me
chanic, which would be more valuable to
her than twenty Zanzibar. He would
rather be a member of the World's fair
commission, and bring about an exchange
between two free ideas, than to effect a royal
alliance, or negotiate a treaty. There was
no need of disguising the fact, that to too
many people the selection of a site so far
away from the coast line seemed unwise
and untimely; but it is now apparent
that in this election would be found the
secret of coming success, and that in it
they would have another illustration of
building better than they knew.
No 81 te Vet Determined I'pon.
Hon. Thomas B. Bryan, of Chicago, the
working vice president of the fair, in re
sponding to the toast of "The Dual Gov
ernment," took occasion to correct a re
port that had beeu circulated during the
day to the effect that the Lake Front site
bad been dinnitely settled upon. Hon.
Charles H. Jones, of The St. Louis Re
public, who responded to the toast of
"The Press" was exceedingly compli
mentary to Chicago. Hon. Henry Ex

cation and literature was spoken to by ex-
Governor A. Q. Bullock, ef Massachusetts,
who declared that the same forces that
had enabled the people of Chicago to build
their great city would also apply to the
establishment of the exposition without a
possibility of failure. It was after mid
night when the speechmaking had con
cluded and the company dispersed to the
strains of "America."

Chicago, June 27. The conference be

The final answer of the company was to
the effect that they would not be justified
in removing Mr. Russell from his posi

ported at once at their headquarters, and
last evening a big meeting c . strikers was
held. Nearly 400 were in attendance. The
meeting was secret, and its import and
results could only be gleaned from the
statements secured after its close. From
the street frequent and hearty applause
could be heard, and it was evident that
the report of the committee and speeches
made were approved. The matter of final
settlement was left in abeyance, however,
until this morning, when a meeting was
held beginning at o'clock. The strikers
show no signs of weakening, and unless
some compromise can be effected to-day
nothing can prevent the strike spreading.
It I. the Company. Ultimatum.
Referring to the decision of the com
pany, "That," said General Snperinten-
tend Sullivan, "is the company's ultima
turn. It is the end of diplomatic rela
tions. We have given a fair and impar
tial hearing to the men. We have kept
out all prejudice and on the basis of a
thorough investigation of the charges
made have felt compelled to sustain Mr,
Russell. The whole matter now rests
with the men. If they acceirt that deci
sion the trouble is at an end: if not, I sup
pose it means fight. "

The Striker. Weakening.
That the men have weakened since the
strike was inaugurated is manifest Dur
ing the conference, when it was clear that
the officials were set on supporting Mr.
Russell, they sought to have his power re
stricted, stating that they were sure if his
authority could be so limited as to insure
the safety of the old employes from dis
charge and annoyance they would be sat
isfied. The matter was argued at length.
but the officials were obdurate in their de
termination to make no concessions.
"We could not consistently hamper Mr.
Russell with restrictions," said Mr. Sulli
van. "Kach official's duties are fixed.
partly by custom and partly by rules pro
mulgated by the board of directors."
Hoping for a settlement.
After the strikers' meeting had closed
last night, one of the participants was
seen. "1 can t give you much informa
tion," said he. "That there is a division
ot opinion is certain from the speeches
made. Just what will be done- in the
matter lias not been determined, but from
the general drift of the talk, I imagine a
settlement will be effected this morning.
If the men refuse to submit,
strikes will proliably occur on the other
roads, but they will be sympathetic
strikes, and will lie occasioned by the re
fusal of the switchmen to handle the
freight carried by them for the Illinois
Central. These sympathetic strikes are
almost sure to follow, and it is safe
to pwdict that if the Illinois Central men
decide to bold out, the entire carrying
trade of the city will be tied up."
A. to Superintendent RnmeL
Many stories have been set afloat by the
strikers as to Mr. Russell's connection with
other roads, all such stories being to his
discredit; they cannot be confirmed. Dur
ing his railway career he has leen con
nected in an executive capacity with the
Inter-colonial railway, the Chicago, St.
Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha, the Great
Northern, the Minneapolis and St. Louis,
and the Chicago, St. Paul and Kansas
City, each of which roads he left because
of a better position being offered him on
account of merit.
Kn Respect for Freight Owner.
The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific
had some perishable freight in the Illinois
Central yard, and sent over their own
swTtch engine with a lot of brakemen and
switchmen, and tried to get the freight
over on their own tracks, but the Illinois
Central strikers would uot allow them to
enter the yard. They flung the switch at
the entrance, ami placed a guard at that
point to keep the Lock Island people out
of the yard.
Double Murder at Morrla, Ilia.
Morris, His., June 27. White-haired
Mrs. Frank Decker and ber son Charles
Decker, a well-to-do farmer, were the vic
tims of what will probably prove a double
murder early yesterday morning. Burglars
entered their bouse and murderously as
saulted the two people, crushing their
skulls with heavy bludgeons. The whole
community is out after the fiends, but so
far nothing has been seen of them.

before ID o'clock to-day, but it will re
quire at least three hours to test the air.

- A oied Month.
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 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 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 reconv.
mended, and grows in popularity in this
city and vicinity. The sales, are increase
ing rapidly and wonderful cures are re
ported. Hold by Hartz & Bahnsen.
