STATE JOTJIHSTA'L, WEDNESDAY EVENTtfGr. JUNE 20 1894.
: I' ALL BOTCHED UP. Congressman Patterson Says Tariff Bill is Bundled, But it is Pretty Strong After All. ONE THING SUITS HIM. We Will Have Money to Throw at the Birds. I 'WASr(05,, June 20. Special. Tn Bpito of losses and crosses, laps and slams, investigations of sugar bribery and investigations of the causes of depression in business and labor, the senate does make progTPS.-i with, the tariff bill, and of late tolerably rapid progress. The pressure from outside has become almost too strong to be resisted except by a few senators who are now the minority of tho minority, but they hold out tenaciously, and strange threats are heard. The ordinary strain of niizht fiession would be nothing new, but Messrs. Jones, Vest and Harris give hints of more stringent measures. Anx ious members of the house say that the courtesy of the senate can only continue 60 Ions? as it is not flagrantly abused, and to the siigsrest iou that tho bill might even yet be talked to death in tho senate a house leader responded: "They will not dare so dangerous a proceeding. Let the elections ko as they may, 34 of the present Democratic senators will bo in the senate till late in tho next presidential term, and some more an: sure to have Democratic successors. So if the rule is established that the minority can prevent legislation they will work that rule in the next con gress and tho next and soon. Itwon'tdo." A Hopeful View. Colonel Josiah Patterson, who was for awhile among the most anxious in the house, says he has got over it and is will ing to wait till tho Republican senators get ready to quit of their accord. Ho adds: 'The Democrats are standing up there to let the liepublican -break bark over their heads, and the bill is all botched and splotched up anyhow, but after pll it is a pretty strong bill. If you will take the schedules through, you will fmd that, even if the other fellows get all tho concessions they claim fron this on, there will be a reduction of more than 15 .er cent from the icKinlcy bill, and that's a big gain, considering the troubles we have had. An other thing suits me ahout the way thing3 are going the bill will get into operation Just in time to catch the revival of busi ness, all the coal miners will be ;vs work about the time our friends out in the min ing regions begin their campaign, and the old women who sell butter and egsjs, chick en sand tholike will have money to throw at the birds by the time election day comes. " Uleolin(r at Every l'ore. This is a common method of consolation among the Democrats, and occasionally one finds a .Republican who concedes the truth of it. ilijor Ben Butterworth, who has been here a great deal of late, talks with, great freedom on thZa phase of it, but stal wart Republicans consider him more than half a free trader anyhow. In the course of a rambling chat on politics and busi ness he pa!;!: ''When the McKlnley bill was propos d, I told my Republican col leagues that wo were virtually pledged to revise the tariff downward and that if we raised the rates we should be badly beaten, for tho time for that sort of thing had passed. I now predict, as I have often predicted before, that there will never again be a high tariff man elected president of these United States. It is strange that our McKinleymen in Ohio cannot see that so far tho naruo of AIcKinley is associated in the minds of the people outside of Ohio with nothing but the most disastrous de feat and failure. If our friends in the other end of this capitol were wise, they would have that bill voted on as soon as possible. They would urgo the Democrats to go faster, for tho country is bleeding at every pore, and everybody thinks delay in settling the tariff question is the main cause of it, and a -majority think the Re publicans responsible for the delay. "One thing, however, must be said the Democrats throughout tho country are a good deal more angry at their senators than any Republican is at ours. That election in Illinois shows that neither par ty went to the polls very much. By the way, you will- notice that for three years or so the vote h;is been falling off. The reason, I think, is sheer disgust on the part of the people of both parties. In 1892 more Republicans staid at home than Democrats, and now more Democrats are staying at homo than Republicans, but both sides are wearied and disgusted by this nonsensical delay. " ' KrinDlst of the End. Messr3. Jones, Vest and Harris still ln lst that the end is- rear, but with the shortest supposable tii k.'. for it to remain In conference the tariff bill cannot become a law by the 30th end of the fiscal year and the time set for it to go into opera tion. It is also almost certain that most of the appropriation bills will be delayed till after tho 30th, and so a joint resolu tion will have to be passed extending the terms of the current appropriations. Tho Indian bill dragged along much later than even the most pessimistic had expected, and the house worked up considerable ill humor over it. Meanwhile the advocates of free coinage of silver are mustering their forces, determined to have ono more fight before tho session ends. ; Senator tioiuire's bill is favored, of course, but only as a beginning, a sort of unstable compromise until something bet ter can bo had. It provides that any owner of silvor bullion may deposit it at the mints and receive payment therefor in standard silver dollars at the price of sil ver bullion on that day. Of the silver thus purchased the secretary is to have coined f 4,000, 000 per month until the ag gregate of money of oil kinds in tho coun try reaches $40 per capita, and thereafter the coinage shall only be sufficient to maintain that ratio. Still another scheme in process of incubation is that the price of silver shall lie fixed arbitrarily at $1 per ounce aud that all silver, American or foreign, may be deposited and the holder shall receive therefor lver cer tificates at that rate. The prophecy made a few years ago by Sherman and other "goldbugs" that; any concession to the silver men would only make them de mand more has been amply fulfilled. The half conversion of Senator Lodge and the alleged half conversion of Tom Reed and others to bimetallism have removed the last lingering doubt the silver men had that their early triumph ia certain if they persevere. The various investigations have pro ceeded on the principle of the Irishman's pig in the old story, of which he said, "It dic.n t weigh half as much as I expected, and I always knew it wouldn't." As to sugar, it has been proved, of course, that Mr. Havemeyer and other agents of the trust came here and worked hard, talked with all the senators they could get to and pulled every string they could, which is no more than everybody knew they would do. BAD BLOW TO FIXERS. Plan of the Populist Machine to Swan fusion to Be Smashed. The Populists in the Second district are about to have more trouble about their congressional nomination than the Re publicans; who have adjourned their con vention to July ltt As announced a few days ago the Pop- uiibw congressional committee postponed the date of their convention from June 22 to July 12 at Paola, two days after the time for holding the adjourned session or the Republican convention at Law rence. Today It IL Sample, chairman of the congressional committee received a telegram from C. B. Hewlett, a dele gate from Wyandotte county to the Paola convention, in which he said the commit tee had no right to postpone the date of holding the convention and as a majori ty of the delegates favored the original date they will meet at Paola June 22nd, and nominate a candidate for congress regardless of the action of the commit tee. Chairman Semple wireij back to Mr. Hewlett that the delegates have no au thority to meet at any time or place with out the consent of the committee. The convention was postponed in the interest of a fusion nominee in case Funston is nominated by the Republican convention. Six members out of the nine on the committee voted for the post ponement of the convention. It is understood that the scheme of Mr. Hewlett iud his supporters is to meet at Paola Friday and with the assistance ot the delegates from Bourbon, Miami and Anderson counties, the "Wyandotte coun ty Populists will nominate State Senator Edwin Taylor of Kansas City, Kansas, for congress. Taylor is a bitter enemy of the state administration and for that reason an effort will be made to sidetrack the scheme to place him in nomination on Friday. The administration charges Taylor with being a fusionist himself and say he was elected by fusion votes, but Tay lor's friends say he was elected as an in d?pendent, defeating Billy Buchan. Whatever the true inwardness of the trouble may be, there will be an interest ing meeting at Paola on Friday and there may be two Populi6t candidates for congress in the Secoud district this year. DEBS' LATEST MOTE. The A. K. IT. to Form m Combine With the Farmer' Alliance. Chicago, June 20. President Debs of the A. R. U., said today that steps would soou be taken to form a triple alliance between tho Knights of Labor, A. R. U. and the Farmers' Alliance. The triple alliance thus formed will control, he said, about 1,500,000 men. A convention under the auspices of the Illinois State Federation of Labor will be held at Springfield, Ills., July 2, 3 and 4, and then the proposed union will probably be effected. President Debs stated that there is little doubt that the alliance will be effected without opposition. The platform which will probably be adopted at the Springfield convention, will contain the following planks: Com pulsory education; direct legislation for the laborer; a legal 8-hour work day; sanitary inspection of workshop, mine and home; liability of employers for in jury to health, body or life; the abolition of the sweating system; the municipal ownership of street cars and gas and electric light plants for public distribu tion of heat, light and power; the na tional ownership of telegraph and tele phones; railroads and the collective ownership by the people of all means of production and distribution; the princi ple of referendum of all legislation.

DOWN WITH THE LORDS. The Movement Takes ou Activity at a Hi Public Mast la ft-. Leeds, Eng., June 20. Two thousand delegates were present today in Albert Hall, when Mr. Spence Watson called the anti-lords conference to order. The conference was organized by the national Liberal federation and a commit tee of. that body submitted the following resolutions: First That the power now exercised by the house of lords to mutilate and reject measures passed by the representatives of the ople in. he house of commons - has been systematically used to defeat re forms, is inconsistent with the right of free popular self government and should cease to exist. -v- Second That the meeting call .upon the government to introduce a measure for the abolition of the lord's veto power by providing that whenever a bill passed by the commons shall be altered or re jected by the lords, the same bill may be reaffirmed by the commons, with or without such alteration, be subject to the royal assent, and thereupon become law. Third That the meeting assures the government the resolute support of the party in any steps that may be deemed necessary to enforce the passage of this constitutional reform. Contrary to expectations, few of the delegates present were men of note. The most prominent persons on the plat form were Chairman Watson, James Henry Dalziel, member of parliament for the Kirkaldy district of Scotland; Sir Wilfred Lawson, president of the Uni ted Kingdom Alliance for the suppres sion of the liquor traffic and member of parliament for the Cockermouth divis ion of Cumberland; Michael Davitt and Henry Labouchere. During the course of his address at the opening of the conference, Mr. Watson said that the present condition of affairs was unbearable. The time for action upon the part of the Liberal party had come. There must be a definite policy, because the government himself was en dangered. When once the policy of the party towards the house ot lords was formulated, there could be neither wavering nor compromise. The battle must be fought out to the end and the end must be very determined. Mr. Watson then move l the first reso lution, that the power now exercised by the house of lords to mutilate and re ject measures passed by the representa- tiues of the people in the house of com mons has been systematically used to de feat reforms, is inconsistent with the rights of free popular self government end should cease to exist. Secretary Harford of the Society of Railway Servants in seconding the reso lution condemned the house of lords for its attitude in regard to labor questions. Alter other speeches had been made on the same subject, delegate Barnard complained that the racing and gambling propensities of the lords had not been mentioned in the resolution. The reso lution was then adopted as proposed. Jr or tiie second resolution Mr. La bouchere moved a substitute declaring that the lords being useless and danger ous, ought to be abolished, and calling upon tiie government to introduce a measure for the abolition of the house of lords. Mr. Labouchere met with an enthusias tic reception and during the speech which he made upon his substitute, he declared that self-government was a farce so long as hereditary legislators existed.

Mrs. Plnmb Had Been Misinformed as to the Pacts. Empobia, June 20. In the suit recent ly commenced in Lyon county, Kansas district court, by Mrs. Carrie S. Plumb, widow of the late euator f. li. fiumo, against Major Calvin Hood of Emporia, Major Hood on Friday last filed his an swer, setting out in detail the facts con cerning the transaction upon which Mr. Plumb based her suit, and these facts disclosed that there was absolutely no liability on the part of Major Hood. A representative of Mrs. Plumb called upon Major Hood and stated that the facts contained in his answer threw a new light upon the subi?et and disclosed for the" first time that Mrs. Plumb had been misinformed relative to the actual facts in the case. After a discussion of the matter between Major Hood and this representative it was agreed that Mrs. Plumb should dismiss her action and that to prevent any possible future friction all matters pertaining to me late part nership of Plumb and Hood should be at once settled. This has accordingly been done and the whole matter thus settled satisfac torily. GOV. IEWELIINO SUED. Be and. Others Sued For $ , O O O For Al lowing Atchison Joints to Ran. Atchison. June 20.

Phelps, is the plaintiff in a $5,000 damage suit against Governor Lewelling, the Atchi son police commissioners, .Viayor Cloyes, and the city of Atchison, which was filed last nhrhc The datnugre was claimed be cause it is alleged that' the defendants allowed joints to run, where the father of the child bought drink, and therefore robbed the plaintiff of the support she might have otherwise received. It will be remembered that the mother of the child brought a similar suit a week ago against the city and county of Atch ison, but as the police power of cities of the first class in Kansas is under the su pervision of the state instead of the city, it would appear that the new suit is an attempt to cover a mistake. The suit is regarded as an attempt on the part of the plaintiff's attorney to attract notori ety. SUFFERING AND HARDSHIP. Two Women and a Sick Bsb Out In the Terrible storm. Wichita, June 20. 1During the worst of the storm which passed over this sec tion and in the darkest part of the night two women with a sick baby drove up in front of the city building in an old, dilap idated farm wagon covered with a ruin ed canvas cover, and to which was at tached two very skinny horses.

President McGregor, the delegates say, is not looked upon with favor by a majority of the miners in this district and if it had not been for the desire on their part to refute his statement that they had decided to strike they would have ignored the call for a convention today.
