22D YEAJR NO. 6,805. WASHINGTON, D. C, SATURDAY EVENING, AUGUST 2, 1890. I ma " ANTI-BOYCOTT SOUTHERN MEMBERS OrPOSED TO THE SCHEME, ilS BEING UNWISE AND UNPROFITABLE. II Would Result in Great Injury to the South, WHAT THE CORRESPONDENTS THINK. The South Should Simply Protest Against the Passage of the Foree Dill. Many Interviews. Concerning the proposed plan for the South to boycott the North in tho orent of tho i.assarro of tho Federal Elections bill, tho following telegraphed to tho Atlanta Ettning Journal today by Sir. U. 1. Spcor, correspondent of that paper, Is of especial Interest. As n matter of Interest and to tost the feelings of Southern representatives In Congress on tho subject of tho proposed boycott, a hasty canvass was mado of tho members on tho floor of tho IIouso this morning Just prior to the oponlngof tho session. Out of twenty-sovon Interviewed only ono was found who approved of tho scheme, and his Idea was that It should be applied only to Republican business concerns. From tho many opinions given theso nro sufllclcnt as samples: or.NKit.vi, ponsnv of Alabama said: "I don't think the time has arrived whon wo should bo talking about boycotts or boycotting. I npprovc tho Journal's course In relation to the Into boycott." COLONEL II. It. M. IUVID90K of Florida declared: "I am as bitterly opposed to tho boycott scheme as I am to the existing Elections bill. The Journal's conservative course In tho premises deserves approval." Jilt A. It. DOCKItllY of Sllisourl; "I am oppon-d to all boy. cott i chetnes, big and little If the At lanta Journal opposed tho boycott scheme rcctntly suggested, I commend q Journal." Mil J. D. AVWYKIt of Texas said: "The boycott proposed was unwise, Impracticable, and If at tempted would result in great injury to tho South. I do not think it will be attempted. Tho Journal did a wise act when It condemned It. It will help the Journal and help tho Democratic riaity " Mil. J. II. MOIIOAN of Mississippi: "Tho scheme la utterly imprnctlcoblo and Impolitic. Nothing but harm can come out of such a propo sition, Kvcn Its agitation hurts. The world should know that the sohomewaj not entertained by the Southern people us a whole. I approve tho Journal' course In tho matter most heartily." Mil. CIIAIIUW T. O'FBllltKLL of Virginia was the only member ap proached who gave the boycott even a partial sanction. Ills Idea was that a boycott directed at Republican manu facturers and political "fat fryers" would bo the thing. Dozens of Interviews could be wired, coco of which differ from the above. The almost unanimous opinion of the press correspondents, a class of men who largely Influence public opinion from the political centre, U against any boycott tcheme. Here are some opinions WHAT THE COWlBJrOKDRXTS THINK. P. A. Clark, New York Tribum: "I think that In order to make the boycott effective It will be accessary for Gov truer Gordon tn dfcolaro Georgia In a state of siege and call out the State militia. I really wonder if anybody In Georgia exeept a few desperate political leaders ever regarded the matter seriously. Among all the Southern business men I know there is not one who would favor such a propo sition under any circumstances." lktcher Hodge, Toronto Umpire: ' The idea of a boycott is oa a plane with that of the man who spent a fortune in an endeavor to extract atooa eblne from cucumbers. That bub, as joumay remember, wade a pile gray ass of himself." Terry H. Heath, Indianapolis Jour pi' "It la a clear iastoace of the mule Licking himself or a taea biting off his own nasal appendage to spite his face, and it will prove practical to the same c cirec " Alfred J Stofar of the Louisville V -inir-Juurnal and Itiehatoad Du , ' ' raid "There's bo sease ia the proposed boycott la tab eouatry It . --1.1,1 not be wade to work. Ia ad vance of any actio by the Senate oa the Force bill the South should simply protest. The 1411. ia lay opiaioa. will not pass tbe Senate this laailon, aad It is doubtful evea if it will be considered in that body. It SJ Laraer of the Charleston New an l Cuurur said: "The proposed boy cott strikes me as laipracticable, aad could not have originated ia the salad of any one who has the prosperity of the South, at heart." Thomas B. Kirwy of the New York J.un.al of VommtrM said: "Busies men with whom I have talked say that their salts la the South are generally oa six months or loader credit. They do cot believe that their Southern custose- is dtfclre to take ad vantage of tha pse pofced boycott tu repudiate their obage tiona." Maurice Solaiaof tha Philadelphia TdeyiapU said "While tha people of the South would he jueiiiad fas adopt ing almost aay peaceful taeaa to show iu the most decisive aiMHiar their la diguatiou at the aUesapt to laiict oa theut such as ua Ajjuerice aad daager jus U-gl.la.tion as tha prorated Federal i-uiuon taw, way aw wise e secrete iug from retorting to the elasost equally uu American tad daagetous hoy cott."

Phjlsildphli bjrih .Uiericuu-- " A Kkaa who stuaiped bis toe would be foolish to have U aUiUUlalcd John P Miller, PalUdelpbU Tdi Q. Jth I (.rtabxly eppiox: of tad course of the Atlanta Jnrnl In op posing a boycott. The best judgment In the North, I believe, h opposed to the passage of the Force Wll, ami the friends of the South there are sus tained In Ihelr position by the calmness and wisdom shown by most Of the rep resentative Southern men In repudiating the suggestion of a boycott. Paradox ically, it may he well that the suites tlon was made, since It afforded an opportunity for a test of Southern sentiment, the result of which is so satisfactory." I. D. Sail of the Detroit Jonrrnl: "1 he boycott Is not Ihe weapon to be ued by a great and suffering people like tboe of the Southern States to de feat so Infamous and unconstitutional measure as the Federal Election bill. Better rest their case on dignified pro tects and an enlightened public sentl mont In the North, which, when the provisions of the measure are digested and understood, will be strong against Us passage." Cicero W. Harris, editorial and gen eral newspaper writer: "Tho boycott having been boycotted, let tho liberal Republicans strlko on the Force bill. ThU9 would the South be left to work out of Its difficulties In Its own way." Fred. A. G. Handy, Chicago Tri bune: "Tho proposed boycott Is un wise. Impolitic and wholly impractica ble. I am confldont that the shrewd business men of tho South will not commit tho folly of dragging their commctcial interests into politics for tho purposo of resenting what thoy re gard as a political wrong. If a boycott wero Instituted it would Tnjuro tho busb nets men of tho South, and their friends In the North and 'West qulto as much ns It would tho mon whoso party Is responsible for the enactment of the Force bill."

He Will So Longer De a Director or the II, .V U. ltonil. The announcement that Senator Gor man hail declined to accept a reappoint ment as One of the State directors in Ihe Baltimore and Ohio ltallroad Com pany occasioned cofrtiderable surprise In Baltimore yesterday. It was under stood that he was to tie one of the two who would certainly be retained, ex Slayor Hodges being named as the other, but neither would again take the office, so the Board of Public Wrttks reappointed J. SIcKenney AVhlte and J. William Baughman. These gentlemen represent the Wash ington branch of the road, which, by the terms of the constitution, cannot be disposed of unless by a vote of the people. The question will lie submitted the coming fall, when the sale will probably be ratified. When this occurs all connections between the State and tho Baltimore nnd Ohio will have been severed. The two directors were elected by the Board of Public Works. oFfl'sTRIKE. CARRIAOE.MAKERS WANT A REDUC TION IN THEIR HOURS. All lint Tvro do Out t Jorce's Fac- torj I'rahnlile Strlko lij Mc- Dortnott llroi.' llmplnj-eoK, Twcnly-thrcc of tho twonty-flvo car riage makers employed by tho firm of Andrew J. Joyce's Sons went on n strike for nine hours n day yostcrday. Tho members of the firm state that thoy had not finally refused tho request of tho men whon tho strlko took place. Tho members of the commlttco who watted upon them wcro Informed that they would bo granted nine hours n day It other firms in the city would do the same. The cmployos deny this state ment. Some time agon commlttco appointed to request a reduction from ton to nine hours was refused. Tho establish ments of tho Joyces nnd of the Slc Dcunott Bros, also refused to make n reduction nt tho request of n meeting of all tho trades, both union nnd non union, although nil other employers had granted tho reduction. The foreman of the Messrs. Joyce's shop talked the matter over with the men yesterday morning, but the men decided to strike. A strlko Is also expected to take place at the McDcrmotl Brothers' shop today. The Slessrs. SIcDormott say that they cannot afford to erant the re duction of time; they have always trealfd their cmployos liberally, nnd the dltcontcnt Is owing to the dissatis faction of a few Incompetent workmen. WHAT THK M'DKKMOTTft BAY. One of the firm of tho SIcDermott Brothers said this morning that their decision would be given to the men on Monday morning. Tho men will scarcely strike to day, for. If they do so, they will lose their week's wages. Sir. SIcDormott said that the firm wero willing to benefit their employes volun tarily, hut they would do nothing from compulsion. Whether the answer to the men would be favorable or not, Mr. SIcDermott declined to say, but, Judg ing from his manner, it will be un favorable. "The fact Is," he said, "wears not at all worried over tbe prospects of a strike. Tbe business at present is In a very dull condition, and if a strike oc curs there will be little loss to us." Sir. SIcDermott did not know how many of the employes would strike it their decitlon was unfavorable, but he knows of a large number who would not. The engineer of tbe shops agreed with Sir. SIcDermott that many of the men would not strlKe, and declared his intention of sticking by his employers. The situation at the shops of Andrew J. Joyce's Sons remained unchanged to-day. Both members of the Arm had gone to Philadelphia late last night to secure new employes, but It was not known at the shops to-day whether any men bad been secured. BEARING FRUIT.

"I don't know any of Quay's secrets," said he. "hut by putting this nnd that together it has been round that there was n strong attachment existing dur ing the last campaign between the man agers of the Hcpubllcan national cam paign and the brewers. I don't under stand how Iliscock can charge affiliation of the Democrats with the liquor Inter ests of New York.

Tucker, the American translator and publisher of Tolstoi's now novel, the "Krcutzer Sonata," says that he has re ceived no olllclal notice that Postmaster General Wanamaker had excluded the book from the malls. He has Informa tion from other sources, however, that such Is the case- Sir. Tucker thinks time ate two reasons for the order. He said: "It U simply another, and this time a very audacious step on the part of the vlce-suppiesslon (so-called) cranks In the direction of muzsllng the freedom of (he press. I can assure these people of one ihlng they will never suppress the book without a bitter right, and In this right I believe I shall have tbe aid and sympathy of every broad-minded literary man In the world. Objection able as the Couistock law Is, 1 do not believe that it can lie made to cover the 'Krcutzer Sonata,' and I believe that the official who shall try to make It cover It by his own aibltrary act will lay himself liable to a suit lor heavy damages. "It is jKisslble, too," went on Sir. Tucker, "that Sir. Wanamaker Is moved in the matter by motives of private re venge, as he wss unable to buy the 'Krt-utzer Sonata' of me to sell in his Phllsdelphla store, at terms low enough to suit him. Before I published the Knutzer Sonata' I sent out a circular tn tbe book trade offering a special dis count to dealers who should place ad vance orders. One of these I sent to Sir. Wanamaker himself. At first I did not bear from blui, but after tbe book appeared snd was selling rapidly be wrote to me pretendiae that be bail mis laid the circular aad had been thereby prevented from placing an advance order, but now giving me a large order for the work at tbe speclsl discount named. "I replied that, unfortunately, it was too lste, snd thst I could allow blut ouly tbe reculsr discount. It bow ap pears that the book, which John Waaa maker, merchant, was willing to sell If be could only buy It cheap enough U sdjudged by Joha Wanamaker, Post waster-General, unfit for circulation in the malls."

S The UrntM'i Washington correspondent says that ltepresentatlve Cummtnas of New York dealt Speaker lteed the hardest blow yesterday Hint that gentleman has thus far received from long sulTerlnc aml Indignant minority. The blow came In the form of a resolution of in rjutry. It was aimed directly at the Speaker, and with cruet Irony was so framed as to require Its reference to the Committee on Itules, of which Str. Heed Is chairman. The resolution to be understood must be tend in tbe light ot the following facts: Away back In 180 Coneress pasted an act preventing the employment of additional laborers at any of the navy yards of the country during a period of sixty days preceding an election In the dlstilct wherein the yard was situated. The purposo of the law was to prevent tho uso of the yards TOR l-OLITICAI. I'CRIHMR. and It admitted of no exceptions except In cases where the Secretary or the Navy rcrtifled the necessity for the extra force. When the Naval bill paw d the Houo a lew months ago It contained an appro pilatlon of $.10,000 for the reconstruc tion of two bulldlnas destroyed by rite at the Klttery (Mc.) Navy Yinl, In January last. besMes Ihe amount neces sary for the completion of the gunnery ship Lancaster, fcr repairs upon the tracing ship Slnnngabela, and for other purposes at the same yard. Satur day last tbe Daily Chronicle of Pottt mouth, N. II., contained an advertls icent signed by the Secretary of the Navy, calliug for the Immediate em ployment of a Urge force of men at the Klttery yard for the foregoing purpose. The Klttery yard. It should lie ex plained, Is situated In Speaker lteed s Congressional district, and the manifest purpose of suddenly increasing the force by five or six hundred able-bodied voters receives a new Interpretation when It is remembered that the autumn elections, to frsuebt with Interest to Sir. Bud, occur in Slalne about six weeks hence. WK. CCMMIXOS' IIKSOI.ITIOK, after ucltlng In Its preamble the facts abovestated, concludes as follows: "Ite solved, Thst tbe Committee on Naval Affairs be instructed to Inquire into tbe necessity of Increasing the force em ployed at tbe Klttery Navy-Yard at this lime: whether the best interests of the public service require thst the buildings destroyed by fire in January last shall be reconstructed; whether the gunnery ship Lancaster should lie completed, etc., snd whether tbe contemplated em ployment of a large force at this lime is not intended to affect tbe approaching Congressional t lection in tbe State oil Slalne. rather than to subserve tbe public Interests; thst the said committee shall have tbe power to send for per sons and papers snd send a sub com mittee to tbe yard, aad that all the ex penses shall be paid out of tbe con tingent fund of tbe House." It should be stated that wbea the ap propiiaUoa for reeoastructiae: the buildings was under consideration ia tbe Senate, it wss strongly opposed by so prominent a Itepublican as Mr. Alli son of lows, bis argument befog lh.it the yard was useful only for the pur pose of repairing wooden ships, a class of vestcis now rapidly falling iato dis til e. thk laTRKKaTtxa rKSfuue of Mr. Cusnutlngs' resolution is found lit iu reference to the Committee aa Hulcs. of which Mr. lteed U cbairmaa. If he suppresses the resolmloa. thereby preventing the Coatsaittee oa Naval Affairs from pursuiag the investigetioa, he makes a virtual coafessioa of the al tgaitoas coalaiaed by iafereace ia tbe resolution Oa the other band, if the Ccabuiiitee oa Itules report favor ably upon the resolutioa it will go to tbe Committee oa Naval Affairs, of which Mr. Boutelie of Maiae, a persoaal friead of the Speaker, b) cbairmaa. It would aot be aa eatraordiaary thing for Mr- Boutelie to carry the resolutioa arotuki ia his pocket several weeks ub til the effect of the iavestigaiion, even if it were tu be wad, would be practi cally acutralized.
