Honrs A Notable Compliment by the
Senate Stetch or the New Secretary'

Canada Introduced Republicans Fili
buster Against Free Tin Plate Official
Washington-, June 30. It took two
hours ami thirty -five minutes only to trans
form a private citizen into secretary of
state of the United .States yesterday. At
1:40 p. in. the Dtesident sent to the senate
the Domination of Colonel J. W. Foster;
at 2:03 the senate confirmed, the nomina-1
tion; at :;30 his commission was sent to
the president and he signed it; at ':4.' it
was countersigned by Wharton as acting
secretary of statu, and at 4:15 Foster took I
the oath of office of secretary of state be
fore Lawel'on Brown, chief clerk and no
tary public of the state department. It
W as the quickest work ever known at the
The Appointee's Diplomatic Career.
John W. Foster has had a diplomatic
rareer probably nnrqnaled in American
history. Bora in Indians, fifty live years
ego, he was educated in the public schools
and graduated from the state university.
He was admitted to the bar, and in con
nection with his practice of the law en
gaged in newspaper work, being connected
with the BvansvQle Journal, lie served j
in the war of the rebellion, and after its ,
close took a prominent part in the politics j
vj .... wiiw.. .11 . - lit- ovi ci na iiwaiiuiciii
of the Republican state central committee,
and in the next year he was appointed by
President Grant minister to Mexico. He
served successfully as minister to Russia
and Spain, acquitting himself with great
credit, and winning for his country a higher
regard than it had previously enjoyed at
One of Illi Treaties 1., i, . :, ,1.
In March, 1885, he resigned the Spanish
mission and returned to the United States,
having negotiated an important commer
cial treaty with the Spanish government.
This treaty elicited general discussion and
was strongly opposed iu the senate. That
body failed to confirm it, and it was after
ward withdrawn by President Cleveland
for reconsideration. Some wr?ks after
Colonel Foster was instructed to return to
Spain to reopen negotiations for a modi
fied treaty. This mission, however, was
unsuccessful aud Colonel Foster remained
abroad but a few months.
His Work for Reciprocity.
When the McKinley bill made it incum
bent upon the department to consummate
tha reciprocal trade arrangements pro- 1
vided for by section 3 of that act Foster '
wa placed in charge of the negotiations.
His selection was vindicatdd by the faeil
ity and success with which these arrange-
periecteu. rtecently he has ,
had charge ot the liehnng sea negotiations
and was agent of the United States to pre
pare the case for presentation to the arhi- '
trators. Since bis retirement from regular j
diplomatic service of the government
Foster has acted as counsellor for the !
Chinese. Spanish and Mexican legations '
in Washington, and his acceptance of the I
office, it is understood, involved a consid
erable personal financial sacrifice.
Complimented by the Senate.
Col. Foster is an elder in Dr. Dartlett's '
Presbyterian church. His family at home 1
consists only of a wife, his two daughters, '
both married, being residents of Water- '
town, N. Y. Foster has his legal resi-1
deuce in Evausville, Ind. His immediate '
confirmation by the senate is an unusual '
compliment to the nominee, one which
has heretofore been extended only to sena- '
tors sitting in the body when nominated '
to office by the president.
They Prevent the Taking Up of the Free
Tin Plate Bill.
Washisgion, June 30. The session of
the senate yesterday was taken up mainly
in the consideration of general appn.pria
bills. The legislative appropriation bill,

ference. The invalid iiension bill, after a
lengthy debate on the several amend
ments, was passed, as was also the post
office appropriation bill and a bill for the
relief of certain settlers on the lands in
North and South Dakota.
Deadlocked for Three Hours.
The house occupied its time in the con
sideration of conference reports on the
army and Indian appropriation bills, new
conferees being appointed. McMfllin
moved to take up the tin plate bill, which
was opposed by the Republicans, who be
gan to filibuster with privileged motions
and the bouse was deadlocked for three
hours in repeated roll-calls on motions to
adjourn and calls of the house. At 8
o'clock the house adjourned.

Washington, June 80.-In view of the

New York, now of South Dakota; Dank
Examiner Hepburn, of New York, and
Deputy Comptroller Nixon, of Indiana,

THE AMALGAMATED SCALE.
Manufacturers Sign it Kxcept at Carne
gie's Homestead Mills.
PrrTBBUBG, June 30. The Amalgamated
association and the irou and steel sheet
manufacturers came to an agreement at
midnight yesterday, and the scale for sheet
mills and tin and block plates was agreed
upon and signed. Thescaleis in the main
the same as last year, both sides maki: g
minor concessions. All the furnaces at
Carnegie's Homestead mills were banked
last night. It is thought that the company
took this action in retaliation for the men
hanging iu effigy yesterday officials of the
firms. This move on the part of the firm
breaks the agreement with the Amalga
mated association, as the wage scale for
this year does not expire until tonight.
Say They Will Never Sign.
All the skilled workmen, 2,000 in num
ber, and members of the Amalgamated as
sociation are now out, and when they will
return to work, if ever, is a question.
There are yet about 2,000 mechanics and
laborer not members of the Amalgamated
at work, but they will not be needed with
out skilled workmen. The company say
they will never sign the Amalgamated asso
ciation steel scale and their workmen are
just as firm that tbey will not sign the
