22D YEAH NO. 6,870.
WASHINGTON, D. C. SATURDAY EVENING, AUGUST 1G, 1S90. FRIGE TWO OENT. POLITICAL NEWS TALK OF A MESSAGE FROM HAR RISON TO THE SENATE, ASKING IT TO PASS THE FORCE BILL, Because Its Opponents Have a Major ity of Republicans, BOAR MAY BE ALLOWED TO SPEAK OH IT. Republican Split in South Oarolim. Ames Indorses Blaine's Reipro8ily YiewsReed and Ranm. The latest rumor set afloat by tho rabid advocates of the Forco bill is that President Harrison will Bend In n special message, asking tho Senate to pass It at this session. It Is troll-known that Harrison Is ns holly In favor of this measure as his cold and sullen temper will permit. Yet It Is not at all likely that the idea of such n message exists elsewhere than In tho lurid imaginings of tho supporters of the hill. It Is a condition, not n theory, which confronts the Itcpubllcans now. They must pass tho Tariff bill or they aro hopelessly discredited. They cannot deny tho opponents of that moasura the right of debating tho bill, as they nro doing, paragraph by paragraph. It has had no public consideration anywhere as yet, save that It Is now re ceiving in tho Senate. Tho debate there cannot bo curtailed except by a change of the rules, and tho rules can not be changed for such a purpose. No order can be adopted which will bring About a voto on the TarllT bill unless by its terms it excludes the consideration of the Forco bill at this session. The Bcnutois favorable to tho Quay resolution could havo passed it nt tho caucus on Thursday night, as ttiey were In a majority of one. Hut Q my is satlsllcd always with tho results und lias no desire beyond gaining his point, 'flint done, lie seeks to let his opponent rest easy. Hence tho caucus was per mitted to adjourn without formally adopting his resolution. lie had won his victory and he did not seek to hu miliate lboo opposed to him. It is understood that the Senate G'inv mittce on Utiles will hold Itself In readiness to report the Quay resolu tion whenever It may seem necessary to do to. It Is even possible that the resolution as reported may provide for the taking up of tbo Forco bill for the jhirposc of permitting Senators Hoar and Spooncr, the chief advocates of that foolish and Iniquitous measure, to mako tho speeches they have labored over so long and have so carefully pre pared. It would be too bad If those able gentlemen bad burned the midnight oil to no end. Hut this is the utmost con cession which would be made to tho friends of tho hill. Immediately after Hoar and Soooner bad delivered themselves of the results of their toll, the bill would be postponed to a day la Ilecctnber, say the first Monday. Mr. Hoar 1 anxious to have a day named on which to take a vote, but this will not be granted. No day will be get for the taking; of a vote. Should the bill be taken up for the purpose indicated for it will be taken up for no other Senator Gorman has Eald he will advise Ids Democratic colleagues to make no reply whatever to any speeches In favor of the measure. Hut this should not be allowed to operate against a demand being made en Mr. U. Frtsble Hoar to explain why he favors now a Force bill when he op posed it fifteen years ago. The efforts of certain Republican or gans of the Administration, which are paid to grind by lucrative offices be stowed upon their editors, to eensure HcnatorQuay for introducing the reso lution, are absurd la view of the fact that he is supported by a clear majority of the llepubllcaa Senators. It is this fact that makes the talk of MacklUting Quay sad his supporters so silly, o doubt Iteed and Harrison, the one arroeant, the other sullen, of tem per, would like to do this, Perkaui f-pooner would be willing to take the mlDor role of keeping tab oa bb associ ates, liut to paraphrase llurke's say iu.L". that "you cannot indict a aatloa," neither can you blacklist a majority. And Quay baa the majority. Hence the Inllaiaiioa that the Presi dent appointed Captain QiiMOfe of th Twenty fourth Iniaairy aa Assistant Adjutant General at Senator Hbeoek's request, instead of Captain Hamilton of the Second Cavalry, who was hacked ly Senator Quay, ii noaiisnse. Hteeoek Voted for Quay's resolution. Besides lliscock awl Aldrkh, the lat ter In charge of the Tariff bttl. three or ivur weeks ago weal to certain Uetno cratlc Senators and proanaatl safaalan lially the plan eu Watted ia Quay's resolution, but they did not come from the caucus and spoke only for themselves individ ually Ever Pattern then affairs have teen shaping theataelve for the latro t!u Hon and adoption of the Quay iaso Ju.un, for the resolution Is as goodw adopud by the KeprtbMcaa caucus,, An odd complication ia the sttuadAi Is now talked of. That is, that t iV'Uiouats. seeing that coafuiiloa h? will r.ut agree to curtail the debate on tbe 1 'iifl bill, but will ceaaWwe to tie bate as Uu-y have heretofore done, pa JiiapU b osragrapa until the uk naUud This would be mm where about October 1 to 13. home vt the Deans' relh Seae-t-is Uiiuk much will be gataed by -uiU a debate.

There Is a homily adage the Demo cratic Senators would do well to heed at this juncture: Let well enough alone' Ills notable that the Republicans back of Quay represent chiefly the younger clement of the parly. Heebies there Is not a Presidential candidate among; them. There Is, however, some excel lent Presidential timber among them. KEBD sniBLTJS ItAUM. DKMOCHATS WANT KO WHITEWASH TOR TUB 1'BNStON COMMISSION. Pim.ADBi,rHiA, Aug. 10. The Washington correspondent of the llteonl Says: The Investigation of Pension Commissioner Itaum, which Speaker Heed finally announced that he pro posed to permit, after Cooper of Indi ana, tbo Author of the resolution, had kept stirring him up every other day In tliu House, does not proceed. Tho chances arc that the special committee will hardly be ready to begin before tho House will have adjourned, and that Congress will adjourn tinedtt In March before a report Is ready. 8o tnr the rommittee has not been completed. Tho Democrats wanted Cooper, tho author of tho resolution, appointed on the committee. Heed not only would not appoint Cooper, but ho would not appoint any body who was likely to press the In vesication effectively. After Cooper the Democrats preferred Jason Hrown of Indiana, n clever criminal lawyer, but Heed insisted on appointing two other Democrats. One of them promptly resigned, and every one of half n dozen successors has done the same, hoping to forco tho appointment of Diown. Tho place Is still vacant. It was observed that Heed appointed Democrats from doubtful districts hav ing largo soldier votes. Hrown had 3,000 majority, and so Is independent. AMES FOIt KECIPKOCITY. THE EXdOVr.ll.NOlt IN DO IIS MR TIIK VIEWS OF SHCIIKTAUV 1II.AINK. Boston, Aug. 10. KxCovcrnor Amos, one of the Republican figure heads of this State, comes out very em phatically for the position taken by Secretary Hlalne on the tariff question. Ho said yesterday: ' If Mr. Hlal'ie's policy Is not adopted, and If his lead on tho tatlff Is not followed, the Republi can party will get smashed. I believe In encouraging commerce with the whole continent and I agree with the Hale amendmont, which authorizes the President to open American ports to those South American countries which will accord equal privileges to us. "This would undoubtedly be a great thing for American trade If the South American countries would respond by trading with us, and I fee no reason why they should not. The protective tariff has done a great service for this country. It has been n grand thlnir. It has established vast Industries which could never have been Introduced with out that protection, and it has made us a great self-supporting nation; but those Industries are, in the main, well established, and there Is now no longer any need of excessively high duties. "At this time Mr. Hlalne has exhib ited a w le and far seeing statesminshlp entirely worthy of him, and unless the Republican party takes bis platform it is done for. I am a protectionist, but I believe in common sense." NEIHUSKA DEMOCKAT3 DENOINCK TIIK I'OHCK HILI. AS AN AT TfcMlT TO HKVIVB feKCTlOKAL ISaUKS. Omaha, Aug. 16.

The army oa the ftontkr is 15,000 strong is seven encampments. "The army on the frontier of Hondu ras numbers -1,000 men. The eastern frontier is also protected by 3.000 men. "I have no confidence in the peaceful efforts of the Diplomatic Corps and soon expect a reopening of hostilities. I know that General Harrlllas is gath ering troops on the frontier every day, I am also preparing to receive him. My troops are enthusiastic and are de sirous to engage in battle. "General Hoeraa was helping the Rlvas faction ia an underhand way and gave an explanation through fear. ' He has now thrown aside all disguise and is openly favoring the partisans of AyaU, and I will tuvade Honduras be fore Guatemala moves. Nicaragua and Costa Rica will not interfere otherwise than diplomatically. "The Diplomatic Corps will only postpone boetlliiies. Guatemala's govern nwnt policy has always been. deceitful, we do not trust them. lean not possibly tell what the results of the war will be. The Guatemalan army U the wore numerous, but that of Sal vador is belter disciplined and ngbta under the conviction that theirs is the right and just cause, and that is really the case. The Rivas rebellion was the result of machination; his defeat ami death ruin all the hones of Ayala. "Nicaragua's sympathies are in favor of Salvador. Her troops at the Hon duras frontier, however, are osdy for the purpose of observation. "To-day I asked General Bogran for the last time to decide for peace or war.

DoiieIh" Ilelloven In .IeirMrcn' Motto, FotT I)l and Nono lteiilgn," nml Will tilny In. tja connection with the resignation of Commissioner Hlne the absurd story wss started yesterday afternoon that Commissioner Douglass would also re sign to show his regard for Mr. Hlne. It did not take long for the president of the Hoard of Commissioners to con demn (bis story. Asked about It, be replied: "Sly young friend, Thomas Jefferson once gave utterance to an Immortal Diiili. He said, referring to olllce holders, 'Few die and none resleti.' sud that axiom has been followed In political history over since. It Is per haps needless for me to say that I have always In this respect lived up to Jeffer sonlan doctrine and I propose to con tinue to do so." This Interview ought to settle Mr. Douglass' position In the matter, and Indicate that he has no Intention of gt tine out. The great question now Is, who wll succetdMr. 111116'' Thus far there U only one candidate in the field, Mr. Robett Chrltly, although a number of others have been mentioned In con nection wltli the olrlce. The President has not yet taken any action in the mat ter, and is awaiting the return of Mr. Hioe front New York, when he will endeavor to persuade the Commissioner to reconsider his resignation ami remain on the board. If affairs can be adjusted to bis liking. It !, of course. Impossible for Colonel Robert to teslgn the Cotnmts sionershtp without losing his place In the Army, and he will not do it. It is likely, though, he will ask to be as signed to some other station, and his request will undoubtedly be complied with. This is the possible ami prob able outcome of the present Imbroglio. There was nothing new In the situ ation to-day. nor Is there likely to be until the President has decided what disposition to make of Mr. Hiae's resig nation. The friends of Mr. Charles G. Dulin will, It is said, urge his appointment as a DUtilct Commissioner to succeed Mr. Hlne. Mr. Dulin is one of the beet known young men la town, and resides in East Washington. He is a splendid business man, and possesses ia an emi nent degree the qualities required of a Commissioner. 'MY W8RK 15 FINISHED." Aa Acrd MlBUIer Stricken With l'atalMU la lit i'ulplt.

SWITCHMEN QUIT WORK THIS MORNING. Trains in a Tanfle, ami Pasttngirs Get Out nad Walk. A BIG FREIGHT BLOCKADE IMMINENT. The Strikers An Orally fotmragsd by the SitBaUoHNarrw Bseapes from AseidsaU, IhrFAto. N. Y.. Aug. 10. The sltlke on the New York Central road was further complicated this morning At 3 o'clock the switchmen in the Cen tral yards struck work, ami those on the West Shore system In this city followed suit. Thore are upward of 300 men In the movement, and a freight block ado nt Enst Buffalo Is imminent. The closing of the West Shore road for freight Is the most serious aspect thus far, as It completely cripples tho Cen tral's facilities for forwarding freight. There was the worst tangle of trains and engines In the Central depot Hits morning that has been seen since the strike began n week nco this morning. West Shore and Central engines crowded every track from tho north to the south tide of the depot, and for a lnue dis tance cast. The llelt Line train, due at 8 o'clock, stopped nt Chicago street, and the passengers walked In as they did from tbo same train last Saturday morning. All passenger trains on all roads en tering the Central depot were behind time this morning, and the big train bouse picscnts as confused n spectacle as at any time since the strike bsgan. The Michigan Central through train due to leave here at 0:50 got away at 0:15, and other trains were even further dels cd. No Information could bo h id at the Central nfflces. Superintendent Burrows and Trainmaster JIaloney were out at Hast Huffalo. Ore of the men about the depot wai asked what cauntl the switchmen to go out. "Here's all there Is to It," was the rr-ply. "A crew of men were ordered around here from the Krle street depot last night to take the place of strikers la the train house. They came, but did not like the job and sent a delega tion to Superintendent llurrows, ask ing him to send them back to the Krle snect depot, as they being union men objected to being detailed to take the placts of the other unionists out on strike. Mr. llurrows was determined that ttiey should act as he desired and they struck. I guess the rest of the men were with them and will stand by them. So don't be surprised If you hear something drop. I don't know anything about the firemen going out, I only know the switchmen are out at lllack Hock ami K,Mt Ilultalo on both the Central and West Shore roads." A telephone message from lllack Itock stated that all the Central switch uii'U bad struck there this morulng, but that the tlremen were still at work. The West Shore is not affected atlllack Itock. Tue strike of the West Snore men is greeted with joy by the old strikers, who see la it renewed hope for the success of their movement. A de tail of fifty policemen were sent out to Kast Hulislo to preserve order, ami s pet Isl officers were numerous about the Central depot. Superintendent Burrows was seen later at the ltaltey avenue creasing, where he was surveying the situation. He said that no freight trains were be ing moved, but the passenger trains were going through all right, though late. A commotion was created on the Hoard of Trade about 10.30 o'clock by the posting of a dispatch which eame over a private wire, and stated that the swtteumen on the lmhh ishore, .Mekel Plate and Michigan Central bad struck clear to Chicago. Up to hoo. bow ever, this report has not been verified. ISTHJ5STWKK OVBRf T WO! ID SSSK SO, MIT THK WIUKEit A ME STILL COKPIINUr'- At-naxY, X. Y., Aug. Ht.

Lord Salisbury's last dispatch to Secretary Hlalne rela tive to the llchring Sia dispute bears the date of Aticust 2. After quoting from historical documents the dispatch concludes: "These show that Kngland refuted to admit any part of the litis slan claim, assetted in the ukase of U21, to marine jurisdiction and the exclusive tight of Ashing through out the whole extent of that claim from liehting Straits lo the rifty-flrst parallel; also that the conven tion of 1335 was regarded by both sides as a lenuuclstlon on the part of Hunla of that claim In its entirely, and that the llcb ling Straits was known and sprrirlcslly provided for. "ltchtlng i'ea was not known by that name, but was regarded as a part of the Pacific Ocean. Her Majesty's Govern ment always claimed freedom of navi gation and fishing In ltehrlng Sea out side the limit of a marine league from the coast. It Is Impossible to admit that the right to fish ami catch seals la the high teas can be held to be aban doned by a nation from the mere fact that for a certain number of years It has not suited tbe subjects of that na tion to exercise such rights. "It must be remembered that the ex istence of lliitlsh Columbia as a colony and the development of the colonies' shipping Interest are comparatively re cent. If the UnlUd States Govern ment continues to dllftr with Great Itrltaln as to tbe legality of the recent captures.
