STATE JOURNAL, EMDAY EVENING. MAY 25 1894.
PAST DRAGGED UP. Senate Yesterday Considered the Hawaiian Question- Senators Kyle and Frye Demand Immediate Action. TA1UFF GONE OYER, More Time Spent in Considering: the Schedules. Washington, My 25. At the open ing of the session of the senate yes terday Mr. Kyle urged the passage of his resolution declaring it was not the purpose of the United States to use force to restore Lilluokalani as queen of the Hawaiian Islands, and that any foreign interference with those islands would be considered an act of hostil ity to the United States. Mr. Daniel, Democrat of Virginia, objected to action on the resolution until the resolution on the same sub ject reported by the foreig-n affairs committee had first been acted upon. Mr. Frye, Republican, of Maine, ad vocated the passage of this or a sim ilar resolution, saying- he had in formation from two responsible pe sons to the effect the moment the senate acted the queen would resign all pretense to the throne and accept a money compansation therefor. This being- the condition on the island, in the name of humanity he appealed to the senate to pass this or similar res olutions. At this point the hour of 10:30 arrived. The resolution went over and the tarilf bill was taken up. Mr. Hale, Republican, of Maine led off with a sarcastic comment on Mr, Gorman's speech of Wednesday, say ing the senator from Maryland had emerged from his seclusion just at the time when his party stood discredited; its ranks broken; its coherency of ac tion lost', an indignant people show ing its distrust; the newspapers piling up denunciation after denunciation, and with a ' panic imminent on his own side of the chamber. The bill, as it now stood, Mr. Hale said, had no responsible parents. It was a politi cal bastard. It was the result of the intercourse of those who had aban doned party princiole with the easy virtues of a few protected industries and the habitual prostitution of the trusts. It had its origin in the back room of a New York office. The Aldrich amendment to increase the duty on tin plate to IX cents per pound was laid on the table 36 to 26. The Jones tin plate amendment was then adopted, fixing the duty at 1 1-5 cents, as was also the Jones amend ment grading the duty on steel in gots, blooms, etc., according to size, value, etc The surprise of the day was the ac ceptance by the financial committee of an amendment offered by Mr. Allen, the Nebraska Populist, to place barbed wire on the free list. Several Republicans opposed it. but did not carry their opposition to the extent of demanding a record-making vote upon it. An intimation from Mr. Hoar that barbed vvire was to be the price of Mr. Allen's vote for the tariff bill was in dignantly denied. Mr. Powers' amendment, to include other classes of fence-wire, was de feated. The following rates were adopted: Anchors, 1 1-20 cents per pound; axles, 14 cents; anvils, $i cents; black smiths tools, ljj cents; boiler tubes, 1 cents; bolts, ljj cents; cast-iron pipe, 6-10 cent; cast-iron vessels, stove plates, etc., 8-10 cent: malleable cast ings, 9-10 cent: cast hollow ware, 2 cent; chains, 30 per cent; cutlery, graded according to the value, and averaging about 25 per cent; shotguns and rifles, 30 percent. At 6 o'clock the senate adjourned. UOCHIXa STILL GOES. Th House Defeats Hajii' Amendment to the Legislative B11L Washington, May 25. After clear ing the table of some routine business, at 12:30 o'clock the house went into committee of the whole, to consider the legislative appropriation bill, and Mr. Richardson was called to the chair. The Republicans were success ful in their efforts to amend the pen sion paragraphs so as to strike out the 200. OOO appropriation for special in vestigation of alleged frauds. At 3:50 the committee of the whole completed the consideration of the bill, and it was reported to the house. Separate votes were demanded on the amendment of Mr. Hayes (Democrat) of Iowa declaring the law repealed authorizing the docking of members' salaries, and on the amendment strik ing out the appropriations, for the. civil service. The Hayes anti-docking amendment was defeated, 104 to 127. The amendment of Mr. Enloe, Dem ocrat, of Tennessee, striking out the appropriation for the Civil Service commission was lost, 80 to 13S, amid Republican applause. The legisla tive bill was then passed. Baseball Results. At Sioux City Indianapolis 14, Sioux City 9. At Minneapolis Minneapolis 17, De troit 7. At Milwaukee Milwaukee 14, To ledo 4.

Representa tives of the Central Pacific railway Appeared before the house committee on Pacific road&to give their views on the Pacific railroad bill introduced by Chairman Keilly of Pennsylvania. President Huntington spoke at length on the - difficulties encountered in organizing and building the road in toe - early 'tus. The impression abroad that the builders had been made rich, he said, was erroneous and he detailed some of the extra ordinary expenses the builders had been compelled to meet. When the road was completed there were no governtnent bonds left, but many debts. The company had always managed to keep its credit good. Coal, which had to be imported at first from Australia, was a great expense. Shares had to be sold at from 75 to 80 to pay the debts. Wells, Fargo "and- company, had been paid 81,500,000 for carrying the mails, and the Central Pacific received but $300, 000 or 8400,000. - Chairman Keilly suggested the last of the first mortgage bonds would mature in 1399 and inquired what the road proposed to do. The president' replied great roads. almost never paid their first mortgage bonds. They were replaced by other issues. He was anxious to pay the debt but as long as the government was drawing its interest time was no object to it. Replying to a question from Repre sentative Iloatner, Mr. Huntington said he had submitted no plan of re organisation. The bill submitted to the senate committee was not his own plan, but he was pleased with it be cause it outlined a plan by which all the creditors would get their money and tinder which the road could live. By selling another issue of mortgage bonds to replace the original, the government could place $10,000,000 in the treasury in ninety days. One hundred and ten million dollars would be required for a mort gage bond issue at 2 per cent to cover the debts of the road to the government and all other parties, the government guaranteeing all the issue. He was certain thj earnings of the road would be sufficient to defray its current obligations. Representative Boatner reminded President Huntington the government had paid interest for years on the bonds, saying the supposition had been the road was to pay back in terest and' inquired whether the road intended to pay the government on the 440,000,000 it "had expended in that way. Mr. Huntington replied no, and said that basing the matter purely on grounds of equity the road should pay the government nothing because the government had crippled the road by subsidizing rivals which took away much of the business. He did not question the policy qf the government in this respect, but considering it solely as a financial transaction it had its bearing on this contract. Mr. Huntington knew of no plan without an extension of time, assuring the committee the owners of the road would not administer it for 100 years without getting anything out of it. THE TARIFF MANAGERS. They Again Warn the Republicans to Mike a Little More Haste. Washington, May 25. The man agers of the tariff bill in the senate grew somevyhat restive yesterday on account of the delay which has oc curred over the tariff bill during the past day or two. There was a con sultation between Senators Harris, Jones, Vest, Brice, Cockrell and others, at which it was decided to notify the Republican side that the progress made was not sat isfactory, and unless the bill moved along a little more rapidly longer hours would inevitably result. Several Republican senators who are the beneficiaries of r nces sions in the compromise and other amendments to the bill were informed that the men on the Democratic side .who are responsible for these conces sions, and who have insisted upon these being retained, would yield to the pressure upon them and consent to having the Jones and committee amendments laid on the table. This made a number of Republicans uneasy and they have replied that the Democrats should insist upon longer hours, and it would be shown that Republicans would help make a quorum. It was asserted that the Re publicans who were willing to have the bill move along could not control those who were inclined to have the debate take the widest possible range, and this could only be met with a lengthening of the hours. Kansas Colored Men After Offica. Washington, May 25. C. H. J. Tay lor stood on the steps of the capitol yesterday with a bundle of dispatches so large that his mammoth right haad could hardly grasp them. "Are those dispatches congratu lating you on your victory?" was asked him. 'Some of them are," was his reply; "but nine-tenths of them are from Kansas colored men, who have ap plied for positions. I think half the colored men in the state want a job in the recorder's office." Will Exonerate Kyle and Hunton. Washington, May 25.

Leavenworth Excited Over In yading Missouri Miners. Bells Bang: Out the Alarm Gall in? Out Citizens. TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT. TheSheriff Conducted theMiners Quietly Away. Leavenwobth, Kan., May 5. There was intense excitement in this city yesterday afternoon. At 4:20 o'clock the court house bell rang out the alarm signal which had been agreed upon Wednesday, and every one knew that the army of striking coal miners from Ray and Lafayette counties, Missouri, had entered the city. Almost instantly the streets were alive with armed men hurrying to the court house to be sworn in as special deputies. Thousands of citizens gathered aloDg Fourth street, known as the Kansas City road, to await the arrival of the invading forces. Shortly after 4 p. m., the head of the advance column appeared. The men were marching briskly four abreast, and so far from being the blood-thirsty wretches that had been popularly expected, they looked posi tively forlorn, ana scarcely one ol those who saw them could help a feel ing of compassion for them. At their heaa marcnea two color- bearers, carrying the national stand ard, and between them marched Cap tain Phil Vail, stumping along pain fully on his wooden leg. There was a trine over lOO men in tne command, and everyone of them . had been drenched to the skin by the hard shower that had just passed. The thick coating of dust, gathered during the three days march, had caked into mud, and altogether the army presented an aspect tnai was posi tively pitiful. As the column passed between the throngs of spectators, it made a feeble attempt at enthusiasm, and gave several cheers, but the shouts lacked strength, and were painfully artificial. To the intense surprise of the as sembled citizens, the rear of the column was brought up by Sheriff Rothenberger and a score of deputies, all plainly on the best of terms with the invaders and evidently making no attempt to interfere with their progress. Then it developed that the strikers were really in the charge of the sheriff and were simply passing through the city to the new bridge by which they would cross the river and march back to their homes through Missouri the shortest route. The expedition had been given up al together. Half of the invaders were already turned back under General Ryan and marching to Kansas City by the road they had come. Upon getting the strikers well on the bridge. Sheriff Rothenberger halted them and made them a little speech, thanking them for keeping their word with him and congratulat ing them upon the avoidance of all trouble. The men were then marched across the bridge, where they were f urnisJied supper by the sheriff, and the possi bility of any trouble was passed.. When Sheriff Rothenberger and his deputy started to meet the strikers they were thrown off the track by the strikers changing their original plan of march, the latter having concluded to come to Leavenworth by what is known as the river road. It was not until late in the afternoon, therefore, that the sheriff caught up with them at Pope station, on the missouri Pa cific railroad. A stormy time followed, with speech making, until the strikers finally agreed to abandon their Leav enworth movement. The command of strikers, however, separated, fully one-half turning back at Pope station to retrace their steps to Missouri via Kansas City, while the other half proceeded to this city and was disposed of as related above. WITH OPEN DOORS. Sensational Testimony In tlie Armor Plate Fraud Investigation. Washington, May 25. The congres sional investigation into frauds and irregularities in naval armor plate began yesterday with open doors. Representative Dunphy stated his in formation came from documents sent to the departments from official papers and from the newspapers. In conclusion Mr. Dunphy said: "My information is the defective plates will be found on the Oregon, the Machias, the Castine, the Monadnock. the Cin cinnati, the Tei-ror, the New York and the Monterey, and that the exact position of the plates on these vessels can be located by the parties who made the complaint, and whose names the committee will be able to obtain from the evidence on file in the office of the secretary of the navy.

A. papers coming to the state capital are f ull of complaints on ac count of the A. P. A. resolutions adopted at the Kansas City conven tion, ana are especially severe on Governor Stone as the supposed author of the resolution. When seen yester day Governor Stone spoke as follows: r. care nothing about all this twad dle, in the first place I didn't write or dictate the so-called A. P. A. reso lution in the state platform. I heart ily indorse it, but I did not write it. I was not even on the committee which reported it. I understand that Mr. Kehr of St. Louis presented the resolution to the committee, and that it was unanimously adopted by the committee as it was by the conven tion. The resolution is all right, and X amrm it. "I have no quarrel with the A. P. A- as individuals. I am positively ana unqualifiedly opposed to the ef- xori iney aie maicin&r to lmect relisr- ious intolerance into political affairs. I am opposed to making any religious lesi oi citizensnip, ana l hate any kind of proscription, and on this rock 1 take my stand. It is somewhat re markable and somewhat amusing that these A. 1 . a. newspapers should con centrate their entire fight on me for a resolution which I did not write or dictate, and which came from a com mittee of which I was not a member, but the resolution is all right, and I am perfectly willing to take the credit of it."

The storekeeper who expects to do much business in 1894 must practice the lesson taught in the following story: "Two frogs found themaelvea in a pail of milk and they could not jump out. One of them was for giving up and said to the other, 'Good by; I sink, I die.' Said his mate, 'Brace up, you duffer! Keep a jumpin' and see what turns up. Bo they kept jumping up and down all night and by morning had so churned the milk that it turned to butter, and they jumped off the better to the ground." Applied to business the fable means this: If you want the business of 1894 to exceed that of 1893, "keep a jumpin'." Don't cry, "I sink, I die!" The merchant who con tinues looking for bad times will not sur vive to see good .. times. The man who keeps a jumpin' will see good times first.
