A Caae ef iBeaniliteary,
Wo observe with regret that the Irith
World of New York, defends the Lodge
election bill and advocates its enactment.
If the British government should propose
auch a measure with a view to its special
application to parliamentary elections in
Ireland, the World would make the wel
kin ring ith its strident protest. It
would appeal to the civilized world to
candemn the contemplated outrage.
Armed with the power which a bill like
Mr. Lodge's would give it, the tory gov
ernment could easily defeat the home
rulers even in counties and boroughs in
which the latter are largely in the majors
Hy. A Parnellite. no matter bow many
votes had been cast for him or how few
for his competitor, could not take his
seat in the bouse of commons
unless ' the dominant party chose
to permit him. The e'ections would be
under the control of toty officers ap
pointed by tory courts, and whenever i
tory parliamentary candidate lacked i
majority a tory returning board would
count one for bim. And the clerk of
the house would have to place on the roll
of members the names of the candidates
thus returned as elected, or incur heavy
penalties. Under such a system the
tones, aitnougn they poll lew votes in
Munster, Leinster and Connaught. and
less than half the vote cast in Ulster,
would have a large majority of the Irish
representation in the popular branch of
parliament. Having the power to do bo,
they would count in whoever they pleased
and defy the majority . More that three
fourths of the people of Ireland demand
home rule, yet with this election system
in operation, they would be nominally
represented in the legislative body by
delegation more than three-fourths of
whom would oppose home rule.
Copious as it is the English language
does not supply expletives enough to en
able the world to express the indignation
it would feel if Balfour should propose to
regulate parliamentary elections in Ire
land as Mr. Lodge proposes to regulate
congressional elections in the southern
states. The World would teem with blis
teriag denunciations of him and his
measure, and history could be ransacked
for tyrants and tyrannous edicts to which
to compare the secretary and bis bill. We
should be told that the mo9t heartless au
tocrat that ever misruled and oppressed
a people had never ordained any thing
more infamous. Yet what it would most
vehemently inveigh against if proposed
lor use in Ireland, it most cordially rec
ommends for use in the free states of the
In becoming a mere partisan republi
can organ the World has forfeited the in
aepenaence or thought and expression
which formerly constituted it chief
charm. It is to be hoped that its present
policy has not also diminished its ability

Chicago Pretty Full of Them and Cantons
CHICAGO, Aug. 5. Military pomp and
martial air and the clunking of sword and
aabor gave the hotel offices and corridor
yesterday an appearance that easily car
ried the mind of the old inhabitant back
to the time when the flower and chivalry
of the northwest stopped here on their
way to the front during the late war. Can
tons of the military order of Odd Fellows
were arriving on every train. The can
tons that arrived Sunday were largely in

Patriaclis was not expected to arrive tin

Washington City, Aug. i There was
much talk in both houses of congress yes
terday, ao much in the house that it occu
piel the wh ole time. The senate did bet
ter, for it got through with nineteen pages
of the tariff bilL The first matter brought
up in the senate was a resolution call ing
for information as to the accident by
which the SaultSte. Marie canal was made
useless. It was stated that the closing of
the canal was costing the commerce of
the nation 1300,000 per day. This feature of
the debate was the reflections indulged in
on the inaction of the house by CockrelL
who sneered at that body as "the business
branch" of congress, repeating the re
mark several times, the foundation for
the sneer being the fact that th e senate
bad passed a bill providing for a new lock
at the "Soo," which the house had not yet
acted upon. It appeared dnring the de
bate, however, that this inaction of the
house had nothing at all to do with the
repair of the present lock, which was pro
ceeding as rapidly as possible with abun
Called Down by the Chairman.
Payne also animadverted upon the house,
while the Republicans generally depre
cated this kind of talk, and the presiding
officer Iugalls at the close of the debate
said that he had observed with regret the
growing tendency to allude in terms of
severity and disparagement to the pro
ceedings of the other house of congress. It
was a violation of the fundamental prin
ciples of parliamentary law to refer in one
house to what was done or said In the
other house. He hoped that the senate in
the preservation of its own dignity and in
the protection of its own immunity from
recrimination would observe those rules
and refrain from such allusions in the
Democratic Points Hade.
Then the tariff bill came up and in the
course of a discussion Edmunds illus
trated a remark by Vance to the effect
that one of his arguments was an old
story by an anecdote of a thief who. when
told that one of the ten commandments
was, "Thou shalt not steal," said that
was an old'story; and Vance retorted, to
the amusement of the Democratic side.
that protectionists bad got to the point
where they did not even make an excuse
for stealing. Later Edmunds and Dawes,
having denied the correctness of But
ler's quotation of testimony from Mr.
Tobey, a New Englaud manufacturer as
to "the degradation of American labor in
New England," Butler sent for the vol
uirn of hearings before the house com
mittee of ways and means, and read ex
tracts from It showing that, on three sep
arate occasions, Mr. Tobey bad made use
of that precise expression.

Blair having suggested the adoption of
a rule that would shut off so much talk.
Plumb said that so far as be knew the
western people were not socially hungry
lor tana legislation. He admitted that the
tariff bill ought to pass, but it was better
not to pass a tariff bill than to pass one
that was not right. If it was meant that
the senate should have a rule to cut off de
bate, that would be a perversion of legis
lative power and a blow at free institu
tions. He bad never heard from any
other interest than the manufacturing in
terest a demand for Increased tariff
duties; and if that statement was heret
ical, he wished to add to it by saying that
in his judgment if the Republican plat
form of had been supposed to mean

Teller said that he did not yield to any

prosperity of the American people. Bnt
he did not share in the view of the senator
from New Hampshire, as taken from one
of the leading newspapers of the country,

"that is right." A feature of the voting

A Field Day for Oratorical Attack and
The trouble began in the house as soon
as the session was convened. The speaker
was absent and I'ayson occupied the chair.
Rogers of Arkansas began with a com
plaint that Speaker Reed had on several
occasions taken bim off the floor, and
then proceeded with, if anything, a more
bitter attack on Reed than that of Bynnm.
He intimated his belief that the speaker's
head contained more sail than brains,
and said he bad bulldozed the house. It
waa suggested by a Republican that ha
would be a good man in the south, when
Rogers retorted that he would not bnll-
doae in Arkansas, whereupon Allan of
Miobigan said: "They kill such people
down there." Rogers concluded by saying

connection said it had passed an election

BATHERS IN PERIL.
Exciting Scene Witnessed by
TWO PEES0NS NEARLY DEOWNED
And a Thiid Rescued Just in Time Mrs.
Harrison's Niece One of Those In Dan
gerGallant Mr. McKee A Brave Mu
sician, and a Cowardly Life Guard Who
Came Near Being Mobbed by the Angry
Philadelphia, Aug. 5. There was a
genuine sensation during the bathing
hoar at Cape May Point yesterday which
almost involved-the life of Mrs. Dimmick,
a niece of Mrs. Harrison, and shortly
afterward in almost precisely the same
manner, the life of Miss Emma Mo
Ilhaney, ot Wilmington, Del. A short
distance out from the shore in front of the
president's cottage is auchored a flatbont
used by bathers to' dive from, and to this
Mrs. Dimmick swam out, but when ahe
dove off to return to shore the current
swept her out beyond it.
Rescued but Exhausted.
Her peril was seen by J. W. Buckman,
of Philadelphia, who occupies a cottage
next to that of President Harrison. Mr.
Buckman went to the assistance of Mrs
Dimmick without attracting the attention
of the other bathers -and brought the
frightened lady safely to shore before J.
R. McKee, the president's son in-law, whe
had been bathing with her, even knew of
her danger. She was in an exhausted
condition when she reached shore.
Another Woman in Peril.
A few minutes later aud Miss Mcllhaney,
who is stopping with her aunt, Mrs. My
ers Hayes, had also dived from the flat
i boat into the treacherous current, and was
being ca'rried seaward at a rapid rate.
Carl Strauss, a musician in the Carleton
house orchestra, seeing her peril, swam
out to the drowning lady, but aa soon as
he reached her side she grasped him with
both hands around his neck and dragged
his bead under water in her frantic efforts
to save herself from drowning.
Got Out a Life Line.
Strauss was himself fast becoming ex
hausted when Augustus W. Buck, of
Fall River, Mass., w ho is eng..ged as clerk
in Dr. F. K. Stewart's drug store, bravely
went to the aid of the couple. Reaching
them he took charge of Miss Mcllhaney.
Meanwhile Mr. McKee procured 'a life
line and Mr. Buckman, who had so gal
lantly saved Mrs. Dimmick from drown
ing but a few moments before, grasped
one end of the life-line and diving into the
surf swam to the assistance of Mr. Buck
and his precious charge.
The President a Wltess.
Mr. McKee paid out the life-line, which
enabled Mr. Buck to reach the struggling
pair and bring tbem safely to shore. Both
were in an exhausted condition, and re
ceived every attention from those on the
beach, among whom were President Har
rison and Secretary Blaine. Dnring the
exciting scene the president had a man
drive to the life-saving station near by and
the crew quickly launched the boat, but
by the time they reached the scene of the
trouble they had all been safety rescued
from the water.
A Life Guard in Disrrsce.
President Harrison took occasion to per
sonally compliment all those engaged in
the rescue and also thanked Mr. Buck
man for his rescue of Mrs. Dimmick. A
life guard employed by the Carleton
house stood on the bench during the most
exciting part ot the rescue of
Miss Mcllhaney and refused to go
into the water and aid them
The cron d on the beach surrounded him
snd actually drove him info the water.
He swam off to the boat and climbed on
it and lay down, bellowing that he was
hurt, and did not render any assistance
whatever. H was afraid to come ashore
for fear that the angry people wonld duck
him for his cowardiie.

A TEW TACTS AND SOME FIGTJEES,
Together with Conclusions Drawn There
from Profit and Loss Account, Show

the Striker An Argument Against the
Arbitration Idea Effect of Strikes on
Hours . of Labor and on Employers
New Youk, Aug. 5. A summary of the
seventh annual report of the state bureau
ot statistics of labor, covering the year
1889, has just appeared in print. It is of
untisnal importance because it is devoted
to a resume and tabulation of the strikes,
lockouts and boycotts- for the five years,
1885-89, their various forms of manifesta
tion, with causes, results and costs, to
both employers and employed. The inves
tigation of strikes, as summarized in the
report, has covered 834 distinct trades and
industries, and the number of establish
ments which have been visited or ad
dressed has covered a total of 11,051
The Money Value of Strikes.
Having given a survey of the methods
employed in gathering labor statistics and
a lengthy dissertation upon the nature
of strikes, as well as extracts of the Btrike
rules of various trades. Commissioner Peck
says; "The strikes in all trades and for all
causes in the five years, 1885 99, as respec
tively detailed in reports of this bureau,
include 9,384 reported on strike; of these,
4,432 were successful, 1,4M compromised,
making 5,860 to be classed as successful,
3,4t8 unsuccessful; strikes were pending
in fifty establishments at the close of the
report The persons engaged numbered
838,926. The reported losses in wages were
$8,000,001. 3h expenses in conducting
strikes, $1,192,(164.4 L The estimated gains
for one working year were 5,582,387, and
for the five years they were $18,623,000.77.
Peek Coneludea That T hey Pay.
"This does not include the piece trades,
such as printers, shoemakers, and cigar
makers, in which large gains were made
but could not be estimated. Loss to em
ployes from all causes, $5,113,6113.15. From
this return it will be seen that the gains
go near to balance the actual cost of
strikes and loss to employes, $6,305,957.
The loss of wages, over $8,000,000, is only
estimated, not actual, and so is uncertain
and may lie to a large amount only a
Worker's displacement with employment
elsewhere. If, however, the f8,000,000 wasa
positive loss, the gain in wages would be a
strong offset. On the whole the strike
pays, for in three years the sum of all
losses would be recovered and the advance
Settlement of W age Disputes.
Concerning the mode of settlement of
strikes. Commissioner Peck advances the
following: "The settlement of disputes
by arbitration is not a new idea; it is as
old as society. The French have had their
conseils des' prudhommes for over a oeu
tury. Whether differences over so vitally
pressing a matter as wages can be settled
satisfactorily by the fiat of a third party
is open to question and can only be de
cided by trial and experience. How can
one compromise on a family's stint of
food or fire and clothing If it were only
a question of bargain and sale, the prices
on either side being $1.50 or $2, it would
be easy to settle at $1.75. Bat between
ths employer and employs there is some
thing more than dollars and cents.
Arbitration Not Satisfactory.
"Arbitration proceeds on a theoretical
basis of equipoise, each party lieing pre
sumed to be anxious for eqnlty. In re
ality the disputants are anxious each for
himself; each claims rights. Hitherto la
bor has been the draft horse of capital.
has done the pulling, while capital has
done the anxious duty of driving, t.ill
Ing to liear the responsibility and take the
profit, after paying for the team a keep.
With this in view mediation or arbitra
tion, though a moral agent, is scarcely
aide to reach higher than compromise.
The laborer is expected to do his duty and
abridge his needs, while the capitalist is
asked to be merciful in his exactions. The
office of the person intervening is to me
diatize between unequal disputants, one
of whom must work to live, while the
other is in no danger of starving."
The Honrs of Labor.
In regard to the hours of labor before
and after strikes, the report says that

in which 1.255 have decreased working
hours, while there was an increase in
