STATE JOURNAU FRIDAY EVENING, AUGUST 3
TBAMPSJRE SCARCE The Strange Findings of the Official Statistics. They Declare Array of the Un employed is Small. FlGUllES MUST LIE. There is Obviously a Mistake in the Computations. Washington. Aug. 3. Special. While llie statesmen at the north end of the ca:itol v.er firing hot shot at the White House ar tl those at the south end wire making thousands of hearts ijlad and several heads ilizzy by the rapidity with which they passed private ami local bills, many re prost-mati v? me n of tiie dominant party vrei-e on their way hi re, and the de partments were turning out some splen did work in the shape cf final reports and summaries of the condition of the people. The census department especially is put ting things through very lively, and in connection with the labor bureau Hon. Carroll D. Wright, being now pruc.fcally tho head of bot.i, is giving ns fresh figures every day to prove l hat we are not one tenth pat as ir.ierable as we thought we Were. Owing to a sort of accident, as Is sup posed, though some members of the house take another v.ew of it, certain figures heretofore aim rig the first to come out are in tiiis census to bo anions the very lust. The bulletin which pives the total number of Itirw rers in the L'nited Slates ar ci t he number engaged in each special occupation i-i eagerly sought for anil is now tein j mace up. The delay, accord ing to the expert of the census office, is due to tin fact that the department hr..s dune so much mere and collected so many more facts than ever before; that every thing had to I t! jrono over two or three time:, and every doubtful point cleared up before, linal takulHtion. The net result is tl.nt congressional agitators will not bo abio to pet figures for use this session and may ro: even s:ct them in time to use dur tbo campaign. The I'netiiployed. Tlio facts airc -idy tabulated, however, present very ii:Tvrent conclusions from thobO p.iven in popular rhetoric. Instead cf there leing millions cf laborers with out, employment" it appears doubtful if there are half :i million that is, cf people who habitus!!- labor in pood timer, and Instead of the. country being ""overrun by tramt V they f.re comparatively rare crea tures. In fact, unless a great many pco 1:1. j aro lying-, there are. largo sections of tli is country in which ti tramp is a curiosi ty, and hi three-fourths cf the south tlure are jh idlers except thoso who never work anyhow. As to farm labor, it would bo very hard f ,r a man to tako the figures now going through t!iepr.;, end which congressmen will be able to frank to their constituents before they leave here, and prove that tho country is any liss prosperous than it was in ts'.'u or 1 SfSt . The main truth is that there is a great lowering of prices all around, and that makes t he figures smaller and presumably makes it hard on debtors. The abstract; cf the census just out is a document col pressmen will iitudy wiih some caro during vacation, for it is dol lars to dou jbmitj that there will be the biggest kind of a row about this census next winter, Some of; the figures are ob viously wrong and ere admitted to be so though the thleials hero tabulated them from the local reports, and no one can toll why the latter tell bo far short of the truth. Tlio points of manifest error, m lcss human nature changed very suddenly about a dozu years ago, aro in the enu meration in New York city and two or three, southern states, especially in the color. el population. Takinp it by decades, the colored people are represented as hav ing increased about 21 percent in lt-50-oO, y per cent ir. liiCO-70, over 35 per cent in 1S70-a0 and but 13.M,' per cent in 1S6U-90, which is self evident nonsense. Ten Thousand JVtorc Pensioners. Of the great mass of bills rushed through by the house, and which the senate is now rushing through almost as rapidly, cer tainly not mere than 1 in 20 is of national interest, but the committee's have sum marized the results with an approach cf accuracy. I; is estimate! that ail tho bills libt raiding tho pension laws will make it possible to add some 10,0'JO pen sioners to tho roils, but it may exceed thut. The lit t result of a score cr mora of tiiis and resolutions on the labor question Is that one first class commission, with Commissioner Wright at the heatl of it, is now at work, anel a few fellows aro tak inp testimony in a feeble way from some of the standi ig committees of congress. The; subcommittee, of thelumso commit ted immigration lias reported strongly in favor of Mr. Lock wood's bill, and as tho full committer will probably support it i" stands a chance at the next session. It forbids latcrers from Canada anel Mex ico to cross t ic line and work on tempo rary contracts, whether for a day or a. year, and forbids shipowners from employing them in any capacity whatever. It also provides that alien laborers coming to this country are to be examirieel at the perfc of entry and net Allowed to land unless they possess $75 cae h or 530 for minors and makes stringent rules about immigrant wottien. Sonui of the committee say that it is too stro i a measure for them to in dorse if the trouble can bo pot at in any other way, but admit that the sentiment is pre-tty strong in i favor and something must be don?. Liberal I'ublic Bulletins Policy. Another movement for liberalizing things in ;re leral is the McKaip bill, which the committee on public buildings lias ap proved, and which provides that public buildings are to be designed on the basis of free competition among architects aud built' on a n.ore liberal system than here tofore. All sorts of plans have been sug gested for n aking government contracts in other lines more democratic. Inciden tally the very latest report from the bureau of navigation in the treasury department shows that during the last fiscal year there were built ia the United States 63S wotei en sailing vessels of 87,719 tons, 308 wood en steam vessels of 44,158 tons, three iron and steel sailing vessels of 4,750 tons and 45 iron and steel steam vessels of 47,710 tons, an ag;iregate of 42,400 in tonnage of sailers and 31,34 in tonnage of steamers. Other reports just issued show in a gen eral way considerable decrease in tho pro duction cf metals and a great decrease in the consumption of many kinds of manu factured goods. Ko Excitement Over the Asiatic War. u.ljn woii.d naturally have expected the China-Japanese trouble to creato excite ment here, but it hasn't. It had been dis counted in advance. Xor has the Blue fields incident and Nicaragua trouble gen erally distracted attention frjm the tariff inabroglio. There is real grief, however, in many minds because the promoters of the Nicaragua canal have at last abandon ed hope of doiir anything here and gone to England to nugoiiato. CLOVER CHANCES COLORS. The Malodoroat Pop. Kx-Ltreeler Decide to 1 lee' o roe a Kepubtic.in. Ex-CoDgresstn in Ben II. Clover, late of Cowley county, has come eiut in an open letter renouncing Populism and announcing- his return to the Repullicaus. Clover came into prominence as the first presielent of the Kaunas Farmers' Alliance, having- been re-elected ia 1888. lie heid the position until October, 1890, when he was the Populist candidate for congress in the Third district agaiust Bishop W. Perkins, and at the election he received a large majority. In 1373 Clover joined the Greenback party, but subsequently returned to the .Republicans. In 1S&S he again left the party and became the Union labor candi date for the legislature. lie ouly re ceived 000 votes in the district. Clover only served one term in con gress and when he asked fur h renomin ation he was defeated ty Jeff Hudson. His congressional career was terminated by a scandal in which his typewriter was a prominent ligure. His wife theu ap plied for a divorce, lu her petition, among other things, sho charged him with cruelty. 1 he divorce was granted and Clover married the typewriter. He has been a farmer, but for some time has been in the live stock commission busi ness in Kansas City. Owing to his malodorous personal reputation he is not coasidered much of an acquition by the Republican.. Ho gives tho following reasons for leaving the Populists: "As tor me, I publicly state that I can no longer affiliate with the Populist par ty and maintain my self respect. I can never support the Democratic party, be cause I ilo not believe in its principles, I shall therefore, go back to my old party, the Republican party. The Republican party has a matchless history. It has given our nation its greatest reforms and its greatest statesmen. The defeats which, it has suiTered for the last four years in our state have brought it to a real ization of the nece-ssities of purity in its methods, aud taught it that if it expects the support of the mass us it must be the champion of purity and refcu-m. While the Republican party is more conserva tive tiiau Iain on liuaucial matters, yet I believe that through it we can se cure liaancial reft mis. The public utter ances of its uational lea iers lead me to this belief. As one of the old Republi cans who went into the Populist party in 189 ', hoping for relief. 1 believe that we can secure the ueedeel reforms better in the Republican par.y than any other. We dou't want anarchy; we doa't want socialism. We want simply just recog nition of the rights of the farming and laboring masses. I have eonlidence that the Republican party is now willing to grant us these rights, and for tais cam paign 1 shall give my influence ia its be half, believing that if i: is successful it will listen to the voice of the people and p.ive them the justice and equity which they demand." GEO. R. PECK IN IT. One of tta Lenders in tlie Proposed Ills; Labor Conference. Chicago, Av.g, 3. The special com mittee at pointed by the civic federation to consider the advisability of calling a national conference, tif representative men to consider the labor question, and the question of arbitration iu particular, has taken counsel of some of the leading business men and prominent trade union ists of the city. The decision was aimo-t unanimous in favor of the proposed conference. The special committee is composed of A. W. fcmull, K. O. Keith, Mrs. Potter Palmer, M. J. Carroll. J. J. Ryan, A. C. Bartiett and George R. Peck. Those who attendeei the preliminary meeting of the civic federation were President Lymau J. Gajre, M. J. Carroll, chairman, and I'rof. A V. Small, John J. Ryan and 11. G.

Hollister of the Eight-Hour HerahL The call for the convention says: "The first aim of such a congress would be exchange of opinion between experi enced men, both employers and em ployes, about tiie best methods of ad justing differences between labor and capital, without resort to means wiiich would not only injure both contending parties, but cripple general industry. "The further purposo of tho congress would be to compare method of concili ation already employed in this and for eign countries, with a view to recom mending the most practicable features of all. "The committee wishes to get the atl vice of representative men upon the matter to be treated in its report. You are, therefore, earnestly requested to meet the committee, vi:h about twenty five other gentlemen to whom this invi tation has been extended, Tuesday, July 31, at the Commerce club, Auditorium building, at 8 p. in., and to express your views upon the following points: "1. Is such a congress advisable? "i Will you give the civic federation your moral support in organizing a con gress? "3. What suggestions can you offer about desirable scope or limitations of the subjects to be discussed? "4. Will you mentioa men who should be invited to take part in tho congress? "In case it is practicable for you to meet the committee, will you not express in writing your views upon the point3 indicated? "Any opinions elicited at the meeting or expressed ia writing will not be given to the public, it being the purpose of the committee solely to get ttie Le3t advice of those whom it deems most deeply in terested." A notice appears elsewhere warning the public against impoaters claiming to represent Orphans' Heine. HIS HEAD TO COIIE OFF. Trlml Ended and His Execution to ba by Guillotine. Lyons, Aug. 3. There were few peo ple around the palace of justice, when the trial of Santo, the assassin of Presi dent Carnot, was resumed today. The court regulations and military guard were the same as yesterday. The prisoner was escorted into the dock hand culled to two gens d'armes, and with two more bringing up the rear. The prisoner seemed even more defiant than yester day anel took his ieat with a mocking smile upon his face. Leblanc, tho soldier who was a fellow prisoner with Cesario at Marseilles, testi fied that Cesario told him that he in tended to kill President Carnot, probably at Lyons, when the chief magistrate vis ited that city. "That is a lie," interrupted Cesario, excitedly. "I never told you or anyone else anything about my plans." Leblanc continued: "Cesario confessed to me that he was designated by lot." "That is untrue," shrieked Cesario. "How untrue," asked the judge, turn ing to the prisoner. I said to you," said Cesario, address ing Leblanc, "afier you had made that remark, 'But who would be so bold as to kill President Carnot? I saw him in Paris surrounded by troops and police.' You answered, 'He will be chosen by lot.'" There was great excitement in court while the prisoner and Leblanc were speaking to each other. Later Leblanc said: "Cesario told me that he had often seen King Humbert in the streets, but he added that to kill him it would be necessary to have a rifle and shoot him from the street, as he would be so surrounded by soldiers." "That is a lie," shouted the prisoner. "I was never chosen to kill President Carnot. Moreover, absolute liberty of action prevails among anarchists." The prosecuting attorney reviewed at length all the details of the trial and de mauded that the jury should not hesitate to do its dut'. M. Breuiilac, counsel for the defense, followed and made an appeal for the prisoner. At noon the jury retired and after an absence of about fifteen minutes, during which there was considerable excitement in court, the jury returned, announced a verdict of guilty without extenuating circumstances. The presiding then pronounced judge, M. Breuiilac, the sentence of death by the guillotine. When the death sentence was uttered, Cesario exclaimed: "Vive la revolution sociale.' 1 ho prisoner was immediately seized and hurried toward his cell. As he left the court room, Cesario cried: "Courage comrades;" "vive l'anarchie. In spite of the prisoner's detiant atti elioappe;ired sentence of mae ins habitual sm: from his face when death was pronounced. Al. Dubruellac, the prisoners counsel gave notice of appeal and in so doing asked that the presiding judge's charge to the jury, at the peniug of the ses sion, be entered on the records. THE SHAFFER WILL CASE, i Xt In XaksD From tlio Probate Court to tlie District tour . An appenl from the probate court to the elistrict court was filed today in the matter of the etate of the late Howard S. Shaffer.

In his will he left all of his estate, vaiued at about filo.UUO, to his wife, Margaret Shaffer, except $5 which he left to his daughter Mrs. Olive Spencer, and $o to each of her three children. The vviil stipulated that Mrs. Shaffer should be the sole ex ecutrix of the estate. Mrs. Spencer contested the will on the ground tiiat her father was not of sound mind when the will was executed.

She will endeavor to prove that her husband was of sound mind, and ca pable of attending to his business af fairs at the lima the will was signed, which was a year prior to his death. HELP FOR COLORED 31 EN". YVusbln jtloti P. Uook.r Talk at Monaa Li&lcs on Their ieetl. Madison, 'is., Aug. 3. Washington F. Booker, the colored orator and educa tor, was the principal attraction at the Monona Laice assembly last night with his lecture on "Tne Best Method of Overcoming the Negro Problem." He gave a graphic and concise history of his race in tlie country, an analysis of its abilities and weaknesses, and a de scription of the disadvantages it is under freim generations of slavery aud the prej udices existing against it in the south. Tho workings of the normal and indus trial institute for colored people under his direction at Tuskogee, Ala., were de fined by him, and he gave as the proper solution of the race problem the educa tion of the negroes, the accumulation of property by them sure to follow and in cidentally the teaching of them in re ligious knowledge.
