THE HOUSECUBIOUS It Also Wants to Knew Abont the Suirar Trust. Soma Questions the Trust is Asked to Answer. LETTER TO THE TliUST. The House Sub-Committeellakes Pointed Inquiries. Tashixoton', July 23. The follow lug letter from the chairman of tha house sub-committee on trusts to the president of the American Sug-ar Ke-Cning- company was mailed laat night: 11. O. Iiavemyer, Esq., Pretti lent Amerj lean iSug-ar I'.eilaiu- Company. Kevr York: "Dear Sir: If you will supply me, as chairman of the ub-coraiaittee on trusts of the committee on manufac tures, the information asked for here in, I will see that it is laid before the house. A free trader myself, and be lieving no tax should be levied on sugar (or anything else), e'xeept for revenue, nevertheless, as practically every article of consumption is to re tain protection, I feel no prejudice ag-ainst the suyar interest as such, and I think a larjre number of the members of the house entertain tho same view. As, however, the Bug-ar trust de mands protection, or, mora properly speaking-, the taxation of the publio for its profit, it should be put before congress and the public ia its real condition, so an intelligent opinion of the merits of its demand may be formed. If, upon an actual and neccessury investment of cash capital it cannot save itself from losses with out burdening1 the taxpayers, then it has as much justification (aal more) for being fed from the publ.c resources by taxation as many industries which we, in passing the Wilson bill, allowed to remain upon the charity list. If, however, its profits have been excessive when figured upon an actual cash and unwatered capital stock, then you, as a fair minded man, will agree witli me that you should not have any legislative favors. "In such an event a tax of 1 cent per pound upon 10J degree su-ar for revenue oniy would be a fair and equitable one permitting a reduction of one-hundredths of a cent for each degree of sweetness lacKiasj-. Such a tax as this, while taking" nothing from the treasury of your com pany, would pour a great many mil lions into the government coffers. Tho information asked for is compre hended vunlr four heads: "First What in the present tax value, i. e., (cost of repl-tcing-), of the plants actually in operat.on and neo e.Hury to produce a quantity of refiued fcu ar turned out by your company? 'Second What have been the actual profits of the American Sug-ar lletinin company for eaeh full fiscal year since its organization, and what are its prolits so far in the current year? 'Third What annual salary is paid to each of its general otlicars? "Fourth W hat is the actual paid-in cash capital, including the plants turned in at their real cash market value and what is the present surplus fund of your company, Lacludin all individual profits. "The Mckinley bill gives the sugar refiners an opportunity of collecting from the consumers a tax of one-half cent per pound upon all sugars above ZN'o. 10 Dutch standard and the con sumption of all classes of sugar during the past three iiscal years aggregated 12.950,802,4 16 ponn Is fully 9.000,000,000 of which were above this standard. "It follows, therefore, that the Bugar trust and the independent re finers in the United States must bava received over 840,000.000 of the peo ple's money, while the jjoverament pot during the three years $470,751. As your company asked continued favors, the propriety of supplying the country with the information asked herein will not be questioned by so reasonable a man of business as your self. "You are a Democrat, and will, I trust, join me in the hope that within a few years the present By stem of taxing the people (under the mislead ing name of protection) for the bene fit of private interests will be dona away with entirely and fcrever. Yours truly, Michael D. Hartib." ARBITRATORS NAMED. Jradg Lyman Trumbull and a Prei l-ent K.w York.r Nam tl. Washington-. July 23. It is stated on what is considered reliable au thority that the president has, in addition to Carroll D.

I JUSTICE BREWER'S VIEWS Be Glvea Eli Opinion of tha Tariff till ami Other Questions. Associate Justice Brewer of the United States supreme court who Is visaing "his daughter Mrs. Aaron P. Jetm jre in this city, gives it as his opinion that the tanC? bill will not pasa. lie talked also of other events of current interest. Referring to the strike, Justice Brewer said: "It will ba a long time before the country recovers from tha shock of the strike. The incendiar ism and looting in Chicago, I regard as the work of the thieves and thugs, who make Chicago, in some respects, tbe worst city in this country. They are always ready to take advantage of such an oppor tunity as a great strike, and, in my opinion, are responsible for tha greater part of the dam age wrought in that city. I do not think the railroad men had a hand in it to any great extent. Some people think that the strike will annihilate the labor organizations, but I believa it will in the end make them stronger. They will see tha necessity of placing at their head strong, cool and clear headed men like Artnur of the loco motive engineers, and of discarding enthusiasts of the Debs order. With such men at the head they will be much more powerful and great trou ble will be avoided. ( Asked in regard to tho truthfulness ' of the Populist stories about the i "usurpation" o power by the federal ! court. Justice Brewer said: "The i courts have no more power than they had under the first years of the con i stitution in most respects. The acts of 1807 and 1S75 enabled a man to sue ' his creditor wherever found and made j some changes, but in general : the powers have not been i enlarged. Tho change is iu the great increase in tha volume of ; business and subsequent enlargement of the corporations handing the . same. Formerly we never had such 1 great transportation companies as the : Santa Fe system, with its 9,000 miles : of railway tracks. Receiverships were ' just the same, but the amount of ; property handled was much less. Tho '. courts do not find the receiver ships of railroads a very pleasant . task." ! A HUGE DESCttiil'ANCY. Tha Santa Fe Ksrn n Overestimated by About 87,000,000. New York, July 23. The meeting of the Atchison, Topaka and Santa Fe reorganization committee devel oped an astounding surprise. It had been expected that Expert Littla would make his financial report, which would about agree with tha committee's estimates, and the reor ganization plan could be put forth complete in every detail. Mr. Little, however, did not mrj're his report. Instead he said that while examining the books he found evi dence of ligure juggling in the matter of rebates to freight bhippers. The amount was very large, and instead of being charged to the propar expense account had been shifted to other channels, so the statement of earnings and income were incorrect. Demand was immediately made of the officers of the road for explana tion. The reply was that two sets of books were kept, one in the West and one in the East. Mr. Little had evi dently examined the Western books, where it was necessary the charges should be properly made, while the Lastern books were ones on which public statements were based. Upon receiving this reply Mr. Little whs ordered to look into the Eastern books. He hastily ran over them, and late last evening the following guard ed statement was made by Secretary Herman Kobbe of the reorganization committee: "The secretary of the Atchison re organization committee makes the following statement in behalf of the committee: Mr. Little has returned. He has had every opportunity to examine the books of the com pany and of the receivers. lie has not been able to complete his report, but he states that during the period from July, 1880, the date of the last reorganiza tion, to December, 1803, the date of the appointment of the receivers, tha income of the company has, in his opinion, been overestimated in an ag- fregate amounting to about $7,00 ), 000. le finds the accounts of the receivers have in all respects been rccurately stated. FOR DEB i' i EFE ISF. American Federation of Labor Isauea an Appeal In Ills Behalf. New York, July 23. Now that the bitter railroad strike is over the lead ers of tha local labor organizations are taking up the matter of securing the proper defense for Eugene V. Debs, president of the A. R. U. This activity issiu accordance with an appeal issued by President Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor, which will be published in the August number of the American Federant, the official organ of tha federation. It reads as follows: "Eugene V. Debs stands as one of the most conspicuous and interesting figures before tha country. None doubt his honesty and devotion to the cause of tha wronged against trie wrong-doers. Yet he is in jail await ing tha action of the United States courts upon the charge of contempt of its injunction. "Debs must be defended, and atly defended. In his person at this time he represents the rights of labor. Eu gene V. Debs is a poor man; he has no money; his trial and pteparation for it will re quire a considerable amount, and we know that the workers of tho country have never yet been appealed to in vain to help the cause of justice, humanity and right- All unions should contribute. We ask all labor ing men to open subscriptions for the "Debs legal defense fund." The Federation heads tha list with a 8500 subscription.

Chinese to Open Up if Japanese Obstruct Their Landing. Loxdon', July 23. A dispatch frora Shanghai says war between China and Japan is considered certain China continues to maka prepara tions to assort her claimed rights in. Corea, and from tha present indica tions it is judged war is inevitable unless Japan recedes from the posi t on she has hitherto maintained. Orders were recently issued for 12,000 Chinese troops to prepare for de parture for Corea. The preparations' were hurriedly completed, and on Friday last the soldiers went on board the transports that will convey thorn to the peninsula. To guard against contingencies, the transports were conveyed by eight gunboats, the commanders of which were in structed to fire upon the Japanese should the latter attempt to obstruct the landing of the Chinese. Warlike preparations are also being made in other directions. A strong body of troops will bhortly leave Ochow for the Li Clioo islands. It is the government's intention to employ the Canton and Nakin fleets in har rassing the Japanese coast if actual hostilities are commenced. Orders have been sent to every Chinese pro vince calling upon each of them to furnish 20, 00 J troops to aid in the sup port of the government. At the Chinese legation it was stated no news of a declaration of war hail been received. It was a Ided if the rumor was true the first report of it would come from Japan and not from China. The officials stated no late news had been received, owing to an inter ruption in the cable service. The latest information received at the legation was to the effect that 10,000 Chinese troops would start for Corea. Japan has rejected the proposals made by the llritish ininister.although the latter had counseled a peaceful settlement of the dispute. The Chi nese government had thereupon de clared that unless the Japanese troops were withdrawn from Seoul and Chemulpo, China would break off the negotiations. The officials, when further questioned, said they discred ited the rumor that war had been de clared. Inquiries were also made at the foreign office, but it was stated news had been received there. BIMETALLIC LEAGUE. Call for a Conference to Be Held lq Valiln a foil August 16. WAsniNGTOK, July 23. General A. J. Warner, president of the American Bimetallic league, has issued the fol lowing address: "The country has now had a year's experience under the gold standard policy since the acts of 1803 closing the mints of India and the stoppage of the coinage of silver in the United States. The results of this experience are manifest on every hand in the business depression of the country, in labor strikes and the general discon tent that everywhera prevails. Con gress will soon complete its work, and the general situation and the pros pects before the country will then be fully d iscloed. Some state elections, involving the election of United States senators, have already been entered upon, and the campaign for the election of menbers of the Fifty fourth congress will soon begin. "In view of these con litions, tha executive committee of the American Bimetallic league have thought it ad visable to call a conference of those who believe that no permanent im provement in the condition of the country can be hoped for as long as the present gold standard policy is yursued, and who favor the immedi ate restoration of the bimetallic stand ard in the United States, with tha frae coinage of both gold and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, to be held at Washington, Thursday, August 16, 1S04, to take into consideration tha condition of the country and to de ci le upon the policy to be pursued to bring about the change in the mone tary policy of the government nec essary to restore prosperity to the people." DRUGGED AND ROBBED. lliseball Manager Manning- and Treas urer Usnnii Kelleved of their Money. Sioux Citv, Iow'a, July 23. Manager Jimmy Manning and Treasurer Den nis of the Kansas City base ball team, were chloroformed and robbed in their room in the Garretson house Saturday' night. Manning mourns the loss of S400, while Dennis is 818 poorer j than he was Saturday night. Satur- day evening Manning took the money from the hotel sfe to pay for trans portation for his team and forgot t return the balance. Who the thieves were is a mystery, but it is thought that thev followed him from Indianapolis or Grand Rapids and se lected Saturday night as the last nisz-ht of the trip and that he would have money with him. Both men were very ill from the effects of the chloroform. Manning will have to stand the loss. The money was part of the receipts of trip.

ADDRESS TO .THE WBHO, president Dabs and tha A. It. C ! an Appeal From the Coontr Jail. Chicago, July S3. Messrs. Debs, Howard. Keliher and Rogers, the A. LL U. officials hare issued an address to the publia tbe substance which U a follows: Headquarters American Railway Union, Cook County Jail, Chicago, lib, July 23. It is almost universally con seded that the Pullman company, through tha oft-repeated reduc tion of wages, excessive rents, and many other causes, has grievously wronged its employes, and what ever may be said about tha great strike which has re sulted, in consequence of such griev ance, the arbitrary refusal of said Pullman company to submit to arbi tration in any form, (even to decide the question if there was anything to arbitrate) is proof that said company had no faith in the justice of its cause and fears the disclosures that are certain to result from an honest investigation, and in view of the heavy losses entailed upon the country, such obstinacy on the part of the Pullman company is deserving1 of the severest condemnation. We propose that the Pullman com pany shall be brought to justice and in a way that shall not necessitate a strike with its attendant ills. - We have faith in the American teo ple; they uphold justice; they love fair play. And now, in the name of justice and fair play, we appeal to the great American public to every good man and every good woman, not to ride in a Pullman car until the Pullman company does justice to its employes. Let the cars run absolutely empty. No friend of labor; no friend of humanity will occupy a seat or a berth in a Pullman car. Let this policy be inaugurated and we will then see how long the railwav com panies will be bound by their con tracts, as they have induced the pub lic to believe, to haul Pullman cars. We propose to continue this fight against the Pullman company through good and evil report and without regard to consequences until justice shall be done. There will be no surrender. We will use every available and lawful means to press the contest. It is requestad that all papers throughout the land favorable to labor, to justici, to humanity, copy this statement, in full and keep it standing as long as possible. Earnestly appealing to the great public to aid us in this unequal con test, and relying with implicit faith upon the final and powerful triumph of the right we subscribe ourselves very respectfully yours. TO ORGANIZE NEBRASKA. The K-lghts of Ltbor to Begin a Thor ough Campaign. Omaha, Neb., July 23. All of the members of the general executive board of the Knights of Labor except Mr. Sovereign are now here, and took up, quarters at the Dellorme, where the sessions of the executive officers will be held. General Secretary Hayes said: "During this week we expect to com plete arrangements for a systematic canvass of the state of Nebraska, and we will push the organization and ag itation to a finish. I am glad to note that the organized workers of Omaha are forming themselves into militia companies. Regarding the movement for a general union of all the labor forces, I do not know what will be done about that at this meeting." WHOLESALE ARRESTS MADE.

Dog rose was so called by the Greeks from a belief that its roots cured the bite of a mad dog. Girl, in the old English of Piers Ploughman, was applied to a young person of either sex. Wife was the weaver, ner unmarried eisters did the spinning for her and were consequently the spinsters. j Yard was once any pole, remnants of j this use lingering in halyard, steelyard, ! yardarm and similar worus. Harebell is properly Ayrbell, so called from its shape and the district of Soot land where it was first noticed. Sea rap once meant traveler, but 800 or 400 years ago nobody traveled except when he was obliged to, so the word gradually acquired an unfavorable meaning. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
