The Antis Confident of Defeating It
Wheeler's Committee's Attack on
Washington, July 8. The Homestead
riots were brought under discussion almost
immediately on the opening of the senate
yesterday. The resolutions offered by
Gallinger to investigate the nuittet
through the committee on education and
labor and by Peffer to appoint a special
committee to tntrntHntn tlt arniMwl . mo

were laid before the senate. There was no
difference of opinion about the invest iga
tion, but the Pinkertons came in for a
good deal of denunciation, Stewart calling j
them a "murderous gang" and "armed
assassins.-' But the sensation of the de
bate was the speech of Palmer of Illinois,
lie said Hint wherever the Pinkertons had
been present they had shed lilood.
In the course of his speech Palmer said:
"I maintain and ask the attention of the
committee on education and labor, if that
committee shall be instructed to inquire
into the BUbject, that these citizens the!
Homestead strikers were right. I main-j
tain, according to the law of the land not
U the law is generally understood, but ac-1
cording to the principles of the law which
must hereafter be applied to the solution
of these troubles tiiat these men the
strikers had theHght to be there. That)
makes it necessary for me to assert that
these men had a right to employment I
there. 1 hey had earned t he right to live !
mere, lliese large manufacturing estab
lishments must hereafter be understood to
be public establishments in the modified
sense, which I will explain in a moment,
and the owners of these properties mint
hereafter lie regarded as holding their I
property subject to the co-relative right of
those without whose service the property
would be Utterly valueless.
More of the Rights of Labor.
! "The only concession I make concedes to
them the owners the tight to a reason-
tible pr.-tit on the capital invested in their
enterprises, I maintain, furthermore,
that these laborers having s; ent their
lives in this peculiar line of service, have
jhe right to Insist on the permanency of I
their employment, and they have a right j
to insist, too, upon a reasonable Oompensa-
rfor their services. We talk about the
I service lawns applicable to govern-1
lnt employment. I assert that there is
a law wider and broader than that, which
gives to these men who have been bred in
these special ,,ursm ts, as for example, in
the service of railroads, or of these vast
manufacturing establishments, a right to
demand pmnlnvmmi ritrht ,.-liiM ,.r

Ten.ire of Employ of Workmen.
"I maintain, therefore, that at the time
of the assault upon these people at Home-1
stead, they were where they had a'ght to .
be; they were upon grounds they had a
right to defend. Do you ask me if these
men may by force lake possession of the
property of another ? Xo Thev were
conducting themselves in the line of their I
rights, as 1 understand that. Business
Was suspended and these men were simplyj
awaiting a settlement of the disputed,
questions between them and their em
ployers. Mark me. I maintain the right!
of ow ners of property to operate it at their j
will. I maintain i he right of the opera- .
tive to assist in its operation. I maintain !
the right of liotli parties to reasonable I
compensation for their services. I main- I
tain the right of these laborers to continu
ous employment, dependent not upon the
will alone of the employer, but dependent!
on the good conduct of the employes.
The ltight to Employment.
"This is the only road out of the difH- i
culty. You may call out the militia of
the state of Pennsylvania and you may

Seed in one of these struggles for human ,
rights. Do you establish the right of these

of the country, so conscious of the exist

to continue in employment during good
behavior will continue to resist, and this
social war will be upon you, and it will
become the duty of Christian statesmen,

out of this difficulty.
HOW TO ADJUST THE TROUBLE.
Manufactories Must lie Considered Pub
How can we adjust it? You cannot do it
by asserting what I admit to be true, that
every man has a right to the control of his
own property in his own way, and that if
a man does not like to go to work for the
Carnegies he may go to work for some
body else. You cannot admit the absolute
rifjht of capital, you cannot admit the
absolue right of labor. You have got to
adjust their rights upou some basis. What
is it? That the manufacturing establish
ment is a public institution as the rail
roads are held to the public, because they
work for the public; because they employ

frnhic, because men in their service
became unfit for other service, and pub
lic because th ere are thousands depend
ent upon them for food and nurture. Thus
have we recognized the right of the capi
talist to the control of his property, sub
ject to bis right to a reasonable reward
for his investment, and we claim for the
laborer the right to permanent employ
ment durina good behavior, he certainly
being compelled to submit to the changes
of business. Where the profits are small
the parties must divide the losses; where
the profits are large, the profits may be

administrations, and that Indiana would

Hale Replies to the "Tall Sycamore "
Hale replying said that there were two
simple propositions before the senate and
he thought it to the credit of the senate
that until the senator of Indiana spoke
the gravity of the situation had sobered :
the minds of senators so that nobody was
to run into a hot and angry t
partisan debate. 1 he senator from Kansas
(Peffer) who had introduced the resoln-j
tion had deprecated discussion, ami the '
senator from Illinois (Palmer) more
philosophical and thoughtful ami self
restrained than the senator from Indiana,
had also avoided political allusions. Hale
then entered upon a general defense of the
Republican policy of protection.

The matter was also up in the house I
over a resolution for an inquiry, which!
was finally decided upon and left to the'

bonorby the labor committee. Watson, of
Georgia (P. A.) charged that the judiciary
committee had shelved a similar inquiry
since last last January, to which Gates re
plied that Watson had been asked to give
the committee some tangible information
and names of witnesses, which that gentle
man had never done. The house was a
unit against tlie Pinkertons.
Predict Its Defeat tictt in
WASHINGTON, July s. Ultimate defeat
of the Stewart free silver bill Is confidently
predicted by the opponents of the meas
ure. ; Free coinage is dead and it will not
come to life," said Representative Will
iams, of Massachusetts, yesterday. Will
iams is in a very confident frame of
mind in view of the canvass of the
feelings of Democratic members on the'
I B,Iver question.
He says that "within a
a few days we shall be able to show a '
Democratic majority against the silver
bill who will vote against it on its pas
sage." Reinforcements for Williams.

Tierce Circulating a Petition.
Pierce, the radical free coinage man
from Tennessee, was circulating a new pe

The fact that he feels obliged to circulate

refused to bring in such a rule wit bout
the approval of the Democratic majority.
The anti-silver men are perfectly willing
to face the bill on a direct vote and lo let

In the Senate and House.
Washington, July a -There was a
spirited debate in the senate yesterday on
the question of investigating the causes of
the Homestead, P., riots and the employ
ment of the Pinkertons. The question as
to whether an investigation should be
ordered was referred to the committee on
contingent expenses with a request that
they report today. The balance of the day
was devoted to the consideration of the
sundry civil bill.
In the house the silver bill was referred
to the committee on coinage, weights, and
measures, without opposition, the anti
silverites ceasing to filibuster. The rest of
the session was consumed in the discussion
and adoption of a resolution regarding an
investigation by the judiciary committee
of the Pinkertou detective forces and their
employment by corporations engaged in
interstate commerce, and especially the
trouble and riots at Homestead, Pa.
Will Ueniand Raum's Removal.
Washington", July 8 The Post pub
lishes the following: "A resolution is
soon to be presented in the house recom
mending the removal of Pension Commis
sioner Raum. It will accompany the ma
jority report of the special committee
which has been investigating the work
ings of the pension bureau." The report
charges Raum with lack of integrity and
various other sins of omission and com
mission. GLADSTONIANS FEEL BETTER.
They Gain Seven Seats and Beat a Cabi
London, July 8. The Liberals were in
better spirits last night. They gained
seven seats in yesterday's polling, and suc
ceeded in defeating a cabinet minister
Ritchie, president of the local government

show that 141 Conservatives and nineteen
Liberal Unionists have been elected, mak

The Irish home rule strength, therefore,
