minister of the gospel at Havana.
The resolution offeied yesterday as to
transportation of bonded goods between

An amendment was offered extending
the scope of the inquiry to the Grand

The doors were reopened at 1:30 p. m.

The hen resumed consideration
Oi the sundry civil appropriation bill.
The pending amendment was that to in
crease the appropriation for surveying the
public lands from 500,000 to $600,000. The
amendment was agreed to.
The next amendment that provoked dis
cussion was the one increasing the item
for topographic surveys from ?200,000 to
300,000 and adding these words: "One half
which sum shall be expended west of the
101st meridian and so much of the act of
October 2, 1SSS, entitled 'An act making
appropriations for sundry civil expenses of
the government for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1SS9,' as provides for the selection
and location of reservoirs and canals upon
the public lands and the reservation of
irrigable lands, is hereby repealed; pro
vided, that reservoir and canal sites here
tofore located or selected shall remain re
terved from .ntry or set .lament until
otherwise provided b, law.
Mr Spooner announced his intention to
vote for the amendment reported by the
committee on appropriations. The cost of
irrigation surveys had been placed, he
said, at .7,000,000. His own opinion was
that if it was to go on the cost would be
nearer ?0,000,000. Under the construc
tion given to the act of ISisb by the interior
department (and which construction he
endorsed as correct ), lands had been with
drawn from settlement covering two
iifths of the area of the United State,
comprising 1,200,000 square miles, or S50,
000,000 acres. For what and how long
wire these lands withdrawn'-' In
order that the government might
have reservoir sites and canal
sites marked out for irrigation purposes.
The Lord only knew how long it would
take to carry out that plan. He thought
that congress had made a great mistake
when it appiopriateda single dollar for the
inigation survey and the sooner it re
tracted that step the better it would be
for the people.
Mr Dawes, from the committee on
appropriations, reported the Indian appro
priation bill and said that immediately
after the conclusion of the sund'y civil
appropriation bill he would ask the senate
to consider it As reported the bill carries
an appropriation of 7.1."0,s01.
The discussion was resumed and Mr.
Plumb argued in support of the amend
ment and in general defense oj the desert
land law, the swamp land law and other
land laws of the United States, lie favor
ed the repeal of the irrigation law, said
tliat its retention meant that not a single
acre of the public lands affected by it
would ever be entered by any homestead
H'ttler, and charged that that was the ob
ject contemplated by the shrewd man who
drew up that provision in the con
lerence committee. It was curious, Mr.
Plumb said, that senators who
talked most about corporations and for
eign land holding came from state which
had given away more land to railroads and
speculators than all the other state com
bined. Mr. Call spoke of Major Howell as a dis
tinguished scientist who is doing a good
work in the interests of the people.
The discussion continued until 0 o'clock,
when the senate adjourned without action
on the pending amendment, haying dis
posed ot only three page of the bill.
MAKE A LIST. ;
Secretary Blaine Asked to Name Spain's
Grant for Pree Sugar.
Washington. July 10 Senator Frye in
replv to Secretary Blaine's letter of the
llth'inst. ha written as follows:
"Your letter'leaves me in some doubts
a-to fact. 1 jissume that j our views are
contained in what is known as the Hall
amendment, that you know, for instance,
what the latin lepuhlio will receive of
ours free from duty in compensation for
freesiicar. I assume that that amend
ment was the result of thorough investi
gation. The diihcultj about it is this:
1 he amount of sugar to be received from
these states would be comparatively small
nnd the consumer of sugar would receive
uo benefit from it Your letter extends this
Idea of reciprocity to Cuba and Porto l?ico.
I admit if siitair is received free from these
islands a well as from the litin republic
the people would be benefitted and sugar
would be practically free. But will Spain
admit into those Maud free of duty the
list-of article named in that amendment?
Of ioure we could not enact a law more
faorable to Spain than to the republics.
Do ou know what Spain would exchange
for tree sugar, and am you give a list of
the article she would receive The better
wav probably would be to make the list
she" would receive, the controlling one for
all these countries.''

WILL NOT EXCEED THE REVENUES.
Washington, July 16. Mr. Cannon,
chairman of the house appropriations com
mittee, emphatically denies that the
appropriations by congress at this session
for the current fiscal year will exceed
the revenues. He estimates the appro
priations at $350,000,000, and says: "The
ordinary revenues of the government for
the fiscal year ended June 30,1890, are re
ported by the treasury at 402,OS3,000.
Under existing laws there is no
reason to anticipate a less sum
from the ordinary revenues during
1891. The postal revenues for 1891 are
i .stimaced by he uoi .master ganeral at
J-65.414,000, making a total of $467,497,000.

Men Meet to Form an Independent
Party Uo Nomination at
Cleveland O., July 16. The delegates
to the Republican state convention were
tardy in assembling this morning and it
was 11:30 when Hon. A. E. Bnnsmade,
chairman of the state central committee,
rapped for order. The convention was held
in Music hall. The interior of the build
ing had been beautifully decorated with
flags. Around and in front of the galler
ies were displayed the portraits of Lincoln,
Garfield, Hayes, Logan, Harrison, Grant,
Blaine, Sheridan and Foraker.
Ex-Governor Foraker, the temporary
chairman, came upon the stage with Col
onel Brinsmade. His appearance was the
signal for prolonged and enthusiastic
cheerinjj. Rev. Dr. to. P. Spicer opened the
convention with prayer. At the conclu
sion of a short speech by Colonel Brins
made the ex-governor was "introduced and
delivered an address.
The chairman called upon Mr. Foraker
to speak and in substance the ex-governor
said: "I want to talk chieily about the
campaign upon which we are entering,but
I have a few words to say first concerning
that of last year. We did not come out of
the last contest very well. We lost the
governorship, the general assembly and
the United States senatorship, the three
great objective purposes of the canvass,
and later as a consequence,
we lost also the lieutenant gov
ernorship, the control of all the state
institutions and only time and the next
election can tell how many representatives
in congress. It was a slaughter not only
for the head of the ticket but all along the
line. A great many people got hurt who
did not even dream of such a thing. Who
supposed they were entirely out of harm's
way. The tax payer, whose burdens were
being constantly lightened, must now con
front deceit revenues and an increase of
eight millions of local indebtedness and
our dissatisfied German friends of
Cincinnati, who, in the name of per
sonal liberty deserted us and fought
with this enemy, for their Sunday beer,
find to their consternation and amazement
that they have only brought on themselves
and their fellow citizens a famine of water.
Naturally much has been said as to the
causes of this defeat. Some of this talk
has beeu nroiitable but most of it has been
worse than profitless. It is gratifying,
therefore, to realize, that we have reached
a point in the progress of time and events
when it is our duty to
quit looking backward. From now
henceforward let every Republican look
to the front. The last campaign should
be remembered only in so far as it teaches
lessons of benefit for the future. All con
nected with it that may be the cause of
criticism or bitterness of feeling should be
forgotten, but if there be those who must
have a victim, those whose minds are so
constituted that they can not be satisfied
without definitely finding fault, to all
such I have an appeal to make. My appeal
is that you place the blame upon me.
Whether it be just or unjust for you to do
so 1 shall not stop to question.
Neither shall I utter a word of
complaint, but. on the contrary,
bear most gladly all that bitterest enemy
can imagine as appropriate to be laid upon
my shoulders, it thereby I can in the
slightest degree promote the common
good of our common cause. What hap
pens to me or to any other individual is of
no consequence in a political sense, to any
body, but what happens to the great Re
publican party is ot the highest concern to
all. No matter, therefore, what may have
been the causes, no matter who may have
been at fault, no matter what Republicans
mav have voted for the Democratic candi
date it is all of the past and only heart
burnings and dissensions can be the
result of cherishing such recollections.
Awav then with bitterness, away with
animositv. away with prejudice, away
with rivalry, away with everything that
stands between our party and our party's
The governor then referred to the ad
ministration of Governor Campbell, and
pointed out the instances in which it had
violated its pledge on the stump. He re
ferred in eulogistic terms to Sherman. Mc
Kinley and Foster, praised the administra
tion of President Harrison and the work
of the Republican congress.
Foraker's speech occupied nearly an
hour in its delivery and the speaker was
Ioudlv applauded at different point, his
arraignment of the Campbell administra
tion 'being greatly enjoyed by the dele
gates. The convention then took a recess
until 2:30 o'clock.
The convention reconvened shortly be
fore 3 o'clock. The committee on perma
nent organization reported ex-Governor
Foraker for permanent chairman but he
deehued to accept the honor. There were
cries of "no, no,"' and Congressman A. C.
Thompson, of Portsmouth, wa chosen
permanent chairman. After a short
speech, Chairman Thompson called for the
order of business.
The report of the committee on resolu
tions was passed for a time and Colonel A.
T. Brinsmade presented the name of Dan
iel J. Ryan for secretar3 of suite. The
nomination was made by acclamation and
Mr. Ryan made a speech of acceptance.
Attorney General D. K. Watson present
ed the name of Judge Thaddeus A. Min
shall for supreme judge and the nomina
tion wa made by acclamation.
The platform was adopted amid pro
Frank J. McColloush. of Logan county,
and C. A. Flickinger, of Lucas county,
were nominated for members of board of
public works. Before the first ballot bad
been completed, McColloch had received
327 votes to 7(5 for Mr. Flickinger and his
nomination wa made unanimous.
At this point Congressman Morey. chair
man of the committee on resolutions, read
the platform, which was a follows:
We heartily endorse the wise and con
servative administration of President Har
rison. We also fully approve the wie ac
tion of the Republican of both house of
congress in fulfilling the pledges of the
partv in legi-lation upon the coinage of
silver, the revision of the tariff, the paage
of the federal election law, tiie
disability pension bill and other measures
of national importance That the thank
of the country are due to the Republican
congress and Speaker Reed for amending
the rules of the house so that the business
of the country can be done by the peoples
We cordially endorse the honest, wise
and patriotic administration of Governor
Foraker. We denounce the Democratic
legislature for its corruptness, its
extravagance and it partisanship.
Pretending to be the party and the repre
sentative of the poor, it elected to the
United States senate a New York specula
tor and railroad-magnate, whose only en
titlement to the office was his liberality in
contributing money to corrupt politics
and whose residence in Ohio was for office
The Republicans of Ohio warmly com
mend the McKinley tariff bill as passed by
the house of representatives, as a wise
measure, calculated to protect and defend.
We most heartily endorse the action of
the Republican congress in passing the
disability pension bill, yet we do not re
gard it as the full recognition of the great
debt of obligation which the government
and the people owe to those heroic men by
reason of whose sacrifices and devotion the
union was saved and the government re
stored. We do further repeat our declara
tion in favor of a just and fair service pen
sion graded according to length of service.
We reaffirm in the most earnest and em
phatic manner the duty of congress to faith
fully and fully carry out the declaration of
the national convention of 1SS8 of the Re
publican party that it will provide by a
lair and impartial law for a free and honest
popular ballot in every congressional dis
trict of the United States so as to secure to
every citizen, rich or poor, native or for
eign born, white or black, the right to cast
one free ballot aud to have that ballot duly

A State Convention Meets to Take Indepen
St. Paul, Minn., July 16. The special
meeting of the Farmers' Alliance was
called to order this morning at 10 o'clock
in the house of representatives by the
president, R. J. Hall. Mr. Hall in an
nouncing the purpose for which the con
vention was called stated that the farmers
of Minnesota had assembled for
the purpose of deciding upon
taking some independent action. The
convention had been called upon
the urgent demand of sub-alliances
throughout the suites. "You delegates,"
said President Hall, "have a great work
ahead of you. This means tho beginning
of a new political party and I hope that
you will return to your homes with the
knowledge that your work is well done."
While the committee on credentials was
preparing its report Mr. Donnelly was
called upon for a short address. Mr. Don
nelly said he had no desire to address this
gathering at length as there were two re
nowned speakers to follow him.
"Our enemies," said Mr. Donnelly, "have
been filling the newspapers with declara
tions that this Alliance has been rent to
pieces. But the Alliance has gone on
growing until, today, we have over 1,200
subordinate Alliances. It is the greatest
growth ever seen in this state. Today we
see the results. This room is filled with
farmers and each is here for a great pur
pose. I have been astonished how the
newspapers have been levelled to this Alli
ance. They are greatly interested In us.
But they say I am scheming against you.
I will here challenge any man to get, up
and say that I have written to him any
letter .asking his political support.. lam
opposed to being a candidate for governor
and 1 here say that I will support the man
The second speaker of the morning was
Hon. "W. W. Erwiu, of this city. The sen
timents of his address were in harmony
with the feelings of the farmers and the
speaker was loudly applauded. His ad
dress was filled with scthing rebukes
against capital. His words were
seemingly the unexpressed opinion
of every farmer. The representatives
of the sons of the soil sat with wide opened
mouth and drank in the eloquent utter
ances as they fell from the lips of their
newly acquired champion.
The convention then took a recess till 2
p. m. Some delay was caused this after
noon by the committee on credentials fail
ing to report at the appointed hour. There
were present between 500 and 600 delegates.
Tahlequah, I. T., Julv 16. The leaders
of the Downiug party have decided on the
11th day of August next to hold their con
vention for the purpose of nominating can
didates of their party for first and second
chiefs of the Cherokee nation. The power
of nominating is in the hands of a fewmen
called captains. These captains are ap
pointed every two years bv the leaders of
each district or county. During the con
vention the captains separate themselves
from among the crowd and go into the
bushes and decide who they want for chief,
and then inform the convention, there be
ing no appeal from their choice This sys
tem has become very obnoxious and un
satisfactory to the most intelligent and
progressive of the Downing party, they be
ing"iu favor of the primary method used in
the states. In an interview with Mr Gid
eon Morgan, secretary of the coming con
vention, who is opposed to the captain sys
tem and talks freely on the -ubiect. ho s.u'd
that unless the primary method is adopted
at the August convention there v. ill be a
radical spht in the ranks. He sas there
will be a new party formed called the
reform party, whose platform will be in
favor of selling the Cherokee strip at an
earlv date, and allotting the home tract.
Mr. ".Morgan says that everything indicates
that the captains are in favor of renomi
nating the pre-ent incumbent, Chief
Mayes, for a second term. This stand
taken by them is not to be wondered at as
they are holding fat offices under the
Mayes administration Another element
of the Downing party, opposed to Mayes'
renomination, is composed of the
Grand Army men who have recently
organized several lodges in the Cherokee
nation. This organization will oppose
Maye because he i a Democrat, and went
south during the war, and all hi appoint
ments since he has been chief executor
have been given to southern men.

Topeka, Kan., July 1G. The representa

are gathering here and the hotel corridors
present a fine appearance this morning.
The day's convention has been called to

Resolutions were as follows: The as
sumption by a federal judge that he has
power to restrain the local officers of a
state, whose duty it is to investigate al
leged Titrations of the statutes of a state
from making any such investigations, is in
direct violation of congressional legislation
but is afcfouce destructive of our local judi
cial system. It is a glaring departure
from tfee-early practice of the federal gov
ernment and is antagonistic to the univer
sally conceded theory that the state
authorities are supreme within the sphere
of their action. We demand of con
gress such speedy legislation as will
permifcihe state governments to have full,
complete and exclusive power to regulate,

J K ilrwoN,
Chairman Committee on Resolutions.
Report of the committee on resolution's:
The temperance people of Kansas in dele
gate convention assembled snbmit the
The question of prohibition legislation
wa submit ti to a direct vote of the peo
ple of Kansas at th general election held
in November, A. D iS). and adopted at
every election for oate oilkrer sine that
time" A direct issue has been made of
this question. At each succeive sewiou
of the legislature since the adop
tion of the prohibitory amendment
the statutes supplemental to ami ia aid of
the constitutional provision'' have been
made more vigoroa- and effectual. In al
most every representative dtrtrict thi.
question bis been the important aad con
trolling issue for the last tea yean At all
thee elections and dnnne all tbee yenr
the sentiment in favor of pro
hibition ha increased to such an extent
that now it can be said with
absolute truth that by the deliberate jndp
ment ot the people of Kansas, prohibition
Is as much favored as a part ofowrorsaoic
law, as the homestead provisions of the
constitauon. In new of the-j fact the
demand for resabmtwion t not onlj un
called for, but entirely indefesive The
battle for prohibition ha beea fought in
accordance with all the forms oi law nod
fairly on. The good people of Ka
never fought but they conquered. The
yoang state 1 a child of victory l
bona with iu face to the rising in and by
the law of its origin. It can nerer ia kr a
backward step. " We demand for tins peo
ple of Kansas the same ngftt to regnlate
aad control the manufacture, sale and
of tntoxKting liquors that both s ered
and profane hiftory record, ha been ejter
cef by every emitted jawem Jsteat that
ever exceed on the lace of the eArth. For
more than one thousand jwlt local re
strictive legislation has bee directed by
natwos stales, caaaues, ciu&, w
all other political 'otdivWoo known to
civil government asains the bttgg m-
' fleecces and the exsrbit-at vtee ofiMs
monstrous evils. Centuries has made this
self evident agent of destruction the sub
ject of local control and management and
such remedial ageucie have been applied
as would prove most effective in different
localities. In view, therefore, of the
historical face that vinuous, fermented
and distilled liquors have from time im
memorial been the subject of local regula
tion and control, we respectfully protest
against the idea that the nefarious traffic
in intoxicating liquors is so pro
tected by the provisions of our fed
eral constitution that it is- beyond
the reach and above the power of state
legislation. We do not believe that it was
the intention of the framers of our funda
mental law to protect a traffic against
which all people in all ages have directed
their best efforts in restrictive legislation
in the attempt to lessen its evils and des
troy its baneful power.
We earnestly protet against the estab
lishment of "original package'' saloons in
our state as being in defiance of public
sentiment, in violation of positive local
law, as against common right, as hostile to
good order, as encouraging lawlessness, as
productive of crime.and a being the "sum
of all villainie," and we do hereby public
ly proclaim our hostility to these den
of wickedness aud pledge every lawful ef
fort to suppress them. The state of Kan
sas is the homestead of prohibition and
prohibition acquired it right to the soil of
our state by permanent occupancy and by
making lasting and valuable improve
ment. The metes and bound of its pos
sessions are exterior lines of the state. Its
warranty deed is recorded in tho heart of
the people, and the muniments of title
can be seen in every church building,
school house and happy home in our pros
perous state. It is the fairest inheritance
ever given to a contented people and the
rum power has no mortgage on it.
