Jerry Mnrrshy Deads for the Henne
piu Canal and Wins.
Kansas Citv, Mo., April 13 The last
day of the commercial congress resulted,
as indicated in these dispatches yesterday
iq a fplit, and the congress adjourned
sine die m some disorder. Transportation
was the subject of discussion at the morn
ing session, and S. A. Thompson, secre
tary of the Duluth Chamber of Com
merce, advocated the development of the
waterways of the northwest. He showed
that the waterways contiguous to Duluth
gave passage to more tariff annually
than all the imports of all the seaboard of
the United States from the north point of
Maine clear around to Washington oa
the Pacific. Hon. T. W. Catcbinga, of
Misi-s:ppi, urged the development of
improvement of the Mississippi river.
He said that the more the waterways
were developed the better it would ba for
the railways, and vice versa. He' said
a'.so that the trouble with this country
was that too much politics was talked.
Jerry Murphy's Ambition.
Hon. J. II. Murp'oy, of Iowa, spoke oa
t'.i Ilenucpia canal. His life had one
p.'.rpo-e and his heart one hope, and that
was the coiitruct'ca of the Hecnepin !
caaai. "If cur n.-ttional legislators are so !
anxious to aid and protect the manufac
turers, why are they not anxious to aid
t.in aijriculturan.-ts.'' He gave statistic
s'..owinjr the immense traffic that woul 1
be bt uefii?ii j,y the construction of the
cau.il, aud how it would help the farmer
by giving bin cheap transportation and a
better market for his products, and
pleaded earnestly with the convention to
indorse the project in such a manner as
would leave no doubt ia the minds of the
natioaal lawmakers as to wbat they mu-t
do ir they would please the western agri
culturists. There were other speeches on
subjects l.-iia out for discussion by the
coaveation, but everybody was primed for
the great lij;ht of the day which was ex
pected to coaie off on the report of the
resolutions committee. A recess was
taken until 1:3) p. m.
THE REPORTS ON RESOLUTIONS.
Substaure of the Views ol the Majority
and M inority.
At the afternoon session the resolu
tions committee reported. The majority
b-g:ns with a demand on congress for
fr.e, unlimited coiuau;e of silver, and the
issuance of a sirtEcient. amount o legal
ten ler notes to be redeemable in both
gold and silver, to restore the ecpuilib
riuai between money and all other pro
ducts; declares this congress to be unal
terably oppo-ed to the protective-tariff
principle, and that it favors a tariff for
revenue only, and that quickly: declares
that the interstate commerce of the coun
try should b controlled by the general
Indorses Internal Improvements.
It also indorses the action of congress
ia making aa appropriation for the con
struction of the Hennepia canal and rec
ommends that congress make ample ap
propriation to complete the work; favors
the construction of a shif canal connec
tion the northern lakes withrthe Atlantio
ocean; dec! arc-s it to le the judgment of
this congress that the Mississippi can be
and should ie navigable for ocean steam
ers of such class as now enter the oort of
Xew Orleans and for a considerable dis
tance above that port, au I recommends
the early passage of a measure similar tc
the one known ns the Bourrouhs bill,
which provided an appropriation of 10,
0,XiJ to be used in the construction of
levees from .St. Paul to the eulf. Besides
this, improvements iu the way of canals,
etc.. are favore i generally. And espe1
cially the Nicaragua canal and its contro'
by the United States.
A Ti ibnte to t'nrle .Terry.
Commands the honorable secretary o!
agriculture for his persistency, enersy
and untiring efforts in his foreign policy
to remove obstructions to our meat
trade, crearo amity between the trade of
this and other nations which will end in
better prices and larger sales, and a
brighter future for the cattle industry;
favors the ameudment of the immigration
laws so that only immigrants who both
desire and are tit for American citizen
ship should be permitted to land upon our
shores; recommends that all unearned
railway grants hi restored to the public
d jrauia for homesteads.
Ilints to State Legislatures.
The report further invites the attention
of. the state legislatures to the problem of.
making such reforms ia methods of tax
ation as will remedy the injustice of un
equal taxation, as well place a jat
share of the burden of the taxation upon
the accumulated wealth of the country;
favors a national baukrupt law; recom
mends that the legislatures of the states
enact reform laws to prevent the misuss
of the conseutrated capital through
"trusts"'; favors the enactment of laws to
prevent dealing in futures; recommends
the riid observance of the fish and gams
laws of the various states and the adop
tion of means for their effectual enforce
ment. Somewhat Congratulatory.
In conclusion the report hails with de
light the spirit of liaternity that is dis
played by the delegates now in attendance
upon the first western commercial con
gress, and also the manifest determina
tion that old animosities too long engen
dered between the sections shall be forever
displaced by the more important work of
securing the cntnplete establishment cj
'equal rights" to all an I special privi
leges to none.
The Minority States Its Ideas.
The minority report opposes a tariff
for revenue, believing that tuch a tariff
would be levied on tea, coffee, sugar aud
other articles which we most largely im
port for general use, and recommends
that the government hold fust to the time
honored, patriotic American principle,
that all tariff laws give a moderate protec
tion to American industry, and declares
in favor of a fair trial of the present
law with reciprocity, and in favor of a
non-partisan tariff commission to inquire
into the working of labor and all indus
trial callings, including agriculture, with
a view to th- equitable adjustment of
tariff schedules from tune to time.
As to the Money Question.
The rvj.-.t further favors sucb free, un
limited coinage of American silver aud
gold which shall make the silver dollar
and the gold collar of equal purchasing
power in all the markets of the world;
f.tvors the holding of an international
monetary congress to establish such a
ratio, and secure its acceptance by all
commercial nations of the world, but un
til such ratio can be so established op
poses the unlimited coinage of silver into
the present legal tender dollar, believing
that such a course would drive gold out
of circulation, lower the standard of value,
contract the present volume of the circu
lating medium, and seriously cripple our
A BITTER ARGUMENT AND BOLT.
The Majority Report Adopted and Many
Delegates Leave the Hall.
The argument on "the adoption of the
resolutions was long and bitter. At 5:30
p. m. the congress bad to leave the ball,
as it was to be occupied at night by a
theatrical troupe. In twenty-five minutes
it reassembled elsewhere, and the discus
sion was resumed, getting hotter and
hotter every minute until at j:30 the ma
jority report was adopted as a whole
without amendment, aud the announce
ment was received with vociferous cheers
from the majority. As soon aa quiet was
restored, the Minnesota delegation rose as
one man and E. V. Smalley, speaking for
his brothel members, said Minnesota
wished to emphasize the objection to
making the so-called non-partisan con
gress a bitter partisan convention, and in
order to do this so that there would be no
mistake about their attitude nearly all
the delegates filed out of the hail amid
the cheers, howls, and calls of those who
How the Vote Was Ca-.t.
While the Minnesota men made their
protest emphatic, many delegates from
the Republican states left the hall during;
the debate aud refused to take part ia the
proceedings when they saw how the mat
ter would end. The vote by states oa the
adoption of the majority report was as
follows: Washington No 3; Louisiana
Aye "2, uo 1; Alabama Aye 1; Colorado

New Mexico No 1.
There were no delegates ia the hall at
the time of the vote from Wisconsin,
South Dakota, Utah, Michigan, Kentucky.
California, or Tennessee, they having
dropped out in disgust. ,
The Final Adjournment.
Aftei the Minnesota delegatiou left the
hail there was a regular stampede, and in
five minutes there were barely enough
delegates left to adjourn decently. A
cross-fire of talk was indulged in until
8:15, when the congress adjourned sine
di. The delegates who remained in the
city were entertained by the citizens last
