Mr. Call offered a resolution, which wasadopetd,
instructing the committee on public lands to In-,
quire into the titles of actual settlers on public

ented.
MR. COKE ON TBS TARIFF MESSAGE.
The motion to refer the President's annual
message was then taken up, and Mr. Coke pro
ceeded to address the senate. He began by speak
ing of the surplus of 1140,000,000 in the Treasury,
and said that the causes which took that money
needlessly from the pockets 01 the people and the
channels of trade (to the enfeeblement of every
branch of industry) were continuing and produced
more aggravated results each successive year. It
was easy to see that unless the causes
were removed or greatly modified. It was only a
question of time when a calamity (fatally Involv.
Ing all the industrial interests of the country)
must follow. In view ot this emergency, so full of
evil portent to the country, the President had In a
wise and bold menage urgently recommended
such a revision of the tariff and reduction of
duties on Imports as would reduce the revenues to
the limit required lor the support of tha Govern
ment. In that the President was simply voicing
a demand that came from the people ot the whole
country.
THE TRUE PRINCIF1.E OF TAXATION.
He defined the true principle ot taxation, and
said the American people know that a system
which wrings from them and piles in the Treasury
a vast surplus beyond the needs ot theoovernment
Is confiscation, not legitimate taxation, senator
Coke dealt chiefly with the tariff as it
affects the laboring man, producing arguments to
show that a protective tariff benefits the manu
facturer very considerably, but that his employe
gets a very small proportion of It. He said the
statistics of the operations of the protective
system show that of the 46 per cent average tax
paid by the American people under the tariff the
American laborer receives at the outside only 10
per cent, white the manufacturer pockets the other
36 per cent; that the laborer, who consumes his
wages In living and rarely has anything left over
at the end of the year, while he receives 10 per
cent of tne tariff subsidy, finds the cost of his liv
ing increased 46 per cent by the tar ff.
He quoted statistics rrom republican and other
sources to sustain his position that the laborer is
not benefited by protection. He said further, with
the ports of the Cnlted states wide open to the in
flux of foreign labor, which is pouring in dally in
immense volume and mingling In the flerce con
test for living wages now going, on with our do
mestic manutactuiers walled In and foreign goods
shut out by a high tariff, as is virtually the case
now, manufacturing capital Is the veritable mon
ster of labor, aud with each day's accession
to our laboring population from abroad becomes
nore and more absolute. Unlimited competition
In labor and the competition of foreign manu
facturing capital excluded by the tariff creating a
monopoly tor American capital, as thoroughly and
completely enslaves American labor as it Is p?s
sible for it to be done. Free trade in labor and a
tariff for the protection of American capital
against European competition is the result and
legal effect of our protective legislation.
The Industrial pbase of the tariff was reviewed
at length by Senator Coke.
House of Representative*.
The House met at 11:45 this morning In continu
ation ot the session of Wednesday, April 4.
Mr. Heed (Me.) Instantly demanded the regular
order.
Mr. Randall (Pa.) asked unanimous consent to
make a statement, but was shut off by shouts for
the regular order from the republican side.
Mr. Cox (N.Y.) moved to adjourn.
At tue demand of Mr. Reed the yeas and nays
were ordered on this motion. Although the vote
was a party one (with the exception of Mr. Sow.
I den, democrat, of Pennsylvania, who voted In the
negative), the motion was defeated?yeas, 130;
nays, 133.
The announcement was received with loud cheers
from the republicans. ?
The roll-call was watched with intense interest
by gentlemen on both sides, many members having
tally-lists before them and keeping a record of the
rote, and although It soon became apparent that
strict party lines were to be drawn, the strength
of the two parties was so equal that the result was
in doubt from the beginning to the end. Mr. Sow
den, of Pennsvlvania, was the only democrat who
bolted the caucus decree, and voted in the nega
tive with the republicans, and as he stood In the
open space in front of the Speaker'sdesk and In an
emphatic voice voted "no, he was given a round
of applause by the republicans. Just before the
vote was announced the Speaker directed lhat his
name be called, and in a clear tone he voted "yea."
THE MOTION TO ADJOURN "DEFEATED.
When the Speaker announced that the motion
had been defeated by a vote ot yeas 130, nays 131,
the republicans rose to their feet and fell to cheer,
ing and shouting vociferously. For some moments
there was wild confusion in the hall, the Speaker's
gavel and the Sergeant-at-Arms" mace being alike
powerless to prevent the republicans from giving
expression to their Joy.
Above the turmoil could b? heard Mr. Reed de
manding the regular order and Mr. McMUlan
(Tenn.) moving for a call ot the House.
This motion having been put, the Speaker de
clared, upon a viva voce vote, that the noes seemed
to have it, which elicited another outbreak from
the republicans. A division was demanded, but,
as the motion was merely made in order that an
other motion to adjourn might be In order, it was
voted oown almost unanimously, amid such
JFERIKQ LAUGHTER AND ATTLACBI
[ that the speaker felt called upon to remind gen
tlemen that this waa the House of Represents,
tives of the United States, and not a public meet
lB&r.l
, Randall again endeavored to make his state
ment, but his voice was drowned in demands for
the regular order.
Mr.*Townshend (111.) remarked to the jubilant
republicans that "He laughs best who laughs
last," but this remark only called forth loader
laughter.
MOTION to aDJOTXX CARRIED?JTEILANT DEMOCRATS.
Mr. cox again made a motion to adjourn, and
the yeas and nays were ordered. The vote resulted
yeas 148, nays 137. Then it was the opportunity
of the democrats, and they were not backward In
availing themselves of it. Cheer followed cheer
in quick succession, while Mr. Springer and Mr.
Townshend, in the exuberance of their joy, leaped
to their feet, and, waiving copies ot
the CongrttHonal Record, cheered and
shouted and taunted their adversaries.
MOURNING DBA PERT ON THE EEPt'EUCAM I
Everybody was in perfect good nature, and th*
republicans accepted their defeat smilingly, shout
ing back repartees to the humorous stings at the
victors, it was three or four minutes before the
confusion ceased, some triumphant democrat In
the meantime securing a pleoe of crape, attaching
It to a suck, and pUntlng it on the republican side
of the main aisle.
END ov TO CONTEST.
So the toaf-oootinned dead-lock wss at last
IM key ot cmbus action, and the
l?tft*latlve day of Wednesday, April 4, came to a
close on the calendar day of Thursday, April 12.
TU RESOLUTION MB. atWiU wool0 have ru
mm
Mr. Randall's purpose in seeking the floor was
to present the following resolution:
Resolved, That Thursday, December C; Satur.
?^,^cfn?bor^ and Tuesday. December 11,1888,
Immediately after the reading cf the Journal, be
and are hereby set aside for the consideration ot

_ 11stated that this resolution will be reported
I House to-morrow by the committee on
The adjournment of the House IS" until to-mor
row (Friday) at noon.
The Democratic Caucus,
A RESOLUTION TO BREAK TQB DEAD-LOCK TO-DAY
ADOPTED.
The caucus of the democratic members of the
House last night adopted a resolution that on re
assembling to-day the House shall adjourn with
the understanding that the committee oh rules
will report a special order setting apart Thursday,
December 6,1888, immediately after the reading of
the Journal, lor the consideration of senate bill
138, to provide for a refunding of the dliect tax
levied In 1861, In which order a reasonable time,
not to exceed three days, viz., Thursday, Satur
day, and Tuesday, shall be allowed for debate and
amendment, and the time lor a vole on Us anal
passage shall be flxed at 4 o'clock on Tuesday.
I'his breaks the dead-lock and is a victory for the
fllibusterem.
When the House was well wearied out last even
ing, Mr. Taulbee succeeded tn getting a recess,
'inis occurred at 7 o'clock, and at 8 the caucus as
sembled. About 125 members were present, and
the general feeling was that harmonious action
must be had. Mr. cos, tn calling the caucus to or
der, urged self-restraint. Mr. O'Kerrall, who ts
one of the advocates of the direct-tax bill, ofTen-d
the resolution which was adopted, staling that It
was as tar as that side would go toward a compro
mise.
Mr. Holman declared that the proceedings tn the
House on this subject were of the most extraor
dinary character ever witnessed In a legislative
body, exhibiting the spectacle of a great majority
ret reailug be rare a small minority. He called upon
Mr. Gates to state his poslilon In the mailer.
Mr. Gates said that he had come into ihe caucus
with the expectation of miklug some concessions.
It he to.lowed his own views he would consent to
no measure that did not involve the absolute de
feat ot the bllL Hut he was a democrat and if the
caucus decided against him he would abide by tu
decision and support it with his vote. This decla
ration was received with applause by the caucus.
Speaker Carlisle advised toe acceptance ot the
proposed compromise.
The Sword of \?MkiB(ton.
SENATORS WHO THINK ITS PURCHASE NOT A QUESTION
OF MONET BUT OF PATRIOTISM, AND OTHERS WHO
DO NOT.
In the senate yesterday afternoon the bill for
the purchase from Miss Virginia Tayloe Lewis of &
sword ot Washington for $20,000 was read. Mr.
Cockreil thought it was a very expensive sword.
Mr. Evarts, who reported the bill, said it was one
oi the swords mentioned In Gen. Washington's
will. Intrinsic value had nothing to do with it.
After some turther debate, in wulch Mr. Vest said
he would not vote for the mil, Mr. Voorhees said
that he would Just as soon vote $100,000 lor the
sword as any other sum. It was not a question ot
money or of price. This was the sword which
Gen. Washington wore upon nis person when, at
the close of a career of glory such as no other man
aver had tn the world, hi- surrendered his commis
sion at Annapolis una bowed his tony head to the
civil authorities of the Government. It was cheap
at any price. Frloe had no meaning to his mind in
connection with 1U 'l his was a slim, long blade of
steel, wim a plain silver handle and guard, bat it
was uallowed by such associations as belonged to
no other relic In human history. It had oe u worn
by the man to whom Frederick the Great sent his
personal sword inscribed, "From the oldest soldier
in ?urope to the greatest gen. ra! in the world."
The bill went over without aciion.
The Districl in Cob|>cm,
complaint# of Washington navy-yard workmen.
A delegation numbering about thirty men, em
bracing carpenters and other mechanics employed
at the Washington navy-yard, visited the Capitol
to-day to enter complaint with the Maryland
members of Congress as to the manner in which
they allege they are treated. On the House side
they saw Representatives couipton, ltusk. and
Hay nor, to whom they staled that they are em
ployed on special and piece-work; that wont is
dealt out to them so that they are not ai.de tn earn
full day's wages, while otner workmen are em
ployed reguiariy every day. They alleged that the
work is so manipulated by the authorities at the
navy-yard as to do the complainants injustice.
They asked the Maryland delegation to lay the
case beiore Secretary Whitn?-y, with the request
that he win give orders to reguiate affairs so that
those engaged on special ana piece-work shall be
enabled to earn full day's wages.
Capitol Topics.
NATURALIZED AMERICAN CITIZKNS IMPRESSED INTO
THE FRENCH MILITARY SERVICE.
In the Senate to-day Mr. Siewart submitted a
resolution calling upon the State Department for
all papers on file relating to the case of one
Fouchler, a citizen of Nevada, who was Impressed
into the military service of France; also to send
all papers relating to any other similar cases. Mr.
Stewart said that Fouchler after being natural
ized returned to France on a visit, and was tin
greased into the military service. Mr. Stewart
ad heard that there are other cases ot tne same
kind, and it was certainly a hardship upon nat

Decisions by Judge Xostgomerr.
THE CASES OF COL. RUTHERFORD AND MR. BRAUNER.
This morning Judge Montgomery handed down
his opinion in the case of Allan Rutherford, in
dicted in two cases for "having in his possession
property stolen from the United states, with in
tent to convert to his own use," on the motion
filed in December last to quash the indictment
certifying the motion to the General Term, to be
heard in the first Instance. The third point made
by the defendant 1b that it la not sufficient to aver
the reception of property by defendant, with
knowledge that It had been stolen, but it is
necessary to aver that be received the property
with a felonious and fraudulent Intent. The
court said he was not clear that the ofTenie
sought to be charged Is not, under the
statute, a felony. It not, then probably the
indictment need not aver that the property
was received feloneously, but be did not regard
the indictment as fatally detective. There was,
however, a more serious question. The statute
does not declare that the doing ot the things
shall constitute a crime. It simply declares that
who does It shall, on conviction, be punished. Haa
the Supreme court jurisdiction to try a man on
this charge? This is the question he certifies.
Judge Montgomery also oied his opinion in the
two cases Against Richard R. Brauner, indicted
under Section 5,408 R. 8. U. S (furnishing lists for
the Pension Office), denying the motion to quash
the indictments. The motion averred that the
charge in the indictments were vague, and the
court hoias the description Is specific enough.
The Cast of James Carroll.
MM IS SAID TO MATE informed TU OFFICERS or
THB PLOT AMONO THE PRISONERS AT TU JAIL
On Saturday last, In the Criminal Court, Judge
Montgomery sentenced James Carroll, a well
known colored housebreaker, to ten years la the
penitentiary. IB passing hium. the court said
that perhaps something would oocur which might
Induce him to change the sentence or set It aside.
It appears that Carroll had written to the court
andthe district attorney asking leniency, clalmiu
that It was through him that, the jail officers got
wind of the organbed movement to break jail be
tween some at the prisoners there. The court in
structed Mr. J. W. Walker to make Inquiries as to
this matter. Mr. Walker did so, and states thst be
Is satisfied, as also are the Jail officers, that while
Carroll was notln theptotMheafdoC itaadla

After a Metal'* Heat.
Niw Tou, April 12.?The nt-ws trom Mr. Conk
llng's sick chamber tills morning isof a most chivr
lng character, and there is every reason to believe
that the dread crisis is passed. Mr. Conkllng
spent one ot the best night* siuce his illness. The
periodical attacks of delirium did hot manifest
themselves at all during the night. The patient
slept off and on, and there wen- few If any symp
toms or pain exhibited during his sleep. At about
3 o'clock this morning he awoke, and was given a
drink, when be dozed off again, and up to halt-part
8 o'clock was still sleeping soundly. At 8 o'clock
Judge Coxe, who left (he house, announced the
welcome Intelligence that Mr. Conkllng had slept
well all through the night. "He awoke at about
S minutes |>ast 3 o'clock this morning for a short
time, but quickly dozed off again, and l left him
sleeping now." Dr. Hartley left the house at 7:30
o'clock. He, too, had cheerful news. "Mr. conk
llng," said be, "passed a good night, and every
thing now locks promising."
Mas. CONkUKO FBEI.INO VERV HOPIH1.
At about half-past 8 o'clock Mrs. conkllng *a?

pearance since yesterday. There was hope in the
faithful wire's voice and eye. She, too, had slept
and much ot the haggard appearance had left her
countenance. She said that Dr. Hartley had Just
informed her before he left that her husband had
passed one of the most comfortable nlgtiU since
be has been 111 She herself, she added, had only
been called once or twice during the night, and
had enjoyed, like her husband, some refreshing
sleep. She was overjoyed at the favorable indica
tions In the sick chamber.
Dr. Barker called on Mr. conkltng at 10 minutes
Bast 10 o'clock this morning. He round no change

GLADSTONE IN COOO FORM.
He Sharply Arraigns the Rorerai
at Itae Liberal t'lnb Banquet.
Bperikl Cable Dispatch W> Ths Evkniso Stab.
London, April 12.?While Balfour was receiving
the congratulations of his friends at tbe banquet
last night, and making the usual personal attack*
on the Irish members. Mr. Gladstone, at the Lib
eral Club, delivered one o( the moat rttunrg*1*? in
dictments ot the government's policy heard to
many years. The gathering at which Mr. Glad
stone spoke was very small and select. Conse
quently the great leader had no difficulty In th<
management of his voice, which has shown serioui
signs ot loss ot power In recent years. Otherwise
he Is well, strong and In good spirits. Ho walked
up two flights of stairs, preceded by Sir Wnltet
Foster, with a light, active step, despising to use
J tbe elevator. Balfour made no attempt to show
' why the government had broken tbe pledges made
by every member as helps to keep tnem in office
that Ireland should be treated the same as
England respecting local government reform, as
Gladstone Bald, Smith, who Is an honest but by no
means brilliant man, let the cat out-or the bag by
distinctly intimating that the tuirilment of the
pledges was dependant on the Irish people adopt
ing lory views. Balfour, of course, made aee ot
cuttings rrom an obscure Insh-Amerlcan paper
without which, as the .Veera says, no orator ot his
caliber would think of appearing on the platform
any more than a clown at a pantonine would
think ot appearing without sausages. Balfour
omitted to remind uls bearers ot ibe strong lan
guage used by his own side against Irish mem
ber* What the public are anxious to bear In
stead or personal squabbles Is what the govern
ment proposes to do, to avert tbe impending
who.esale evictions. At present they confine
themselves to their traditional policy ot- offering
stolid resistance to tbe lrlsli members' proposals.
I'arneil, however, is not wholly dissatisfied with
the division on the bill extending the operation of
tbe act of 1S8L Although more than a score of
Irish members Journeyed from Ireland to vote,
they polled nothing like their complete strength,
yet a majority or .">< was the smallest nad against
them in any division ot the present parliament.
THE TURMOIL IN FRANCE.

ky Flonqnet far the PreM-nt.
Special Cable Dispatch to Tux Evening Stab:
London, April 12.?The moderate republicans,
after attempting tbe policy of Boulanger against
the present French cabinet, begin to feel like
Frankenstein, plainly alarmed a; Uie general's suc
cesses. The result Is that In all probability tbey
will not for tbe present allow tbe defeat ot Flou
quet, who will then have the management of tbe
municipal council of elections. The royalists,
moreover, are uneasy at tbe prevalence of the p.e
blscltary spirit. There are rumors that Boulauger,
when he takes his seat, will attack the constitu
tion, then resign bis seat followed by his support
ers. His speech, with his portrait, will be circu
lated widely and the general will run again
whebever tnere Is a vacancy, to keep up the ex
citement. If so, It Is not uullkrly that beu^j
succeed In making the public heartily tired of his
very name. Tbe contest In the Xord is earned on
with great bitterness and has already led to a
challenge to a duel from Kochetort's son to Paul
Freulalne.
CHICAGO BREWERIES CLOSED.
Employment of One Nnd)nlen Ulan
Lead* ?? a (General strike.
Chicago, April 12.?All tbe union malsters and
brewer* In Chicago went on a strike at 4 a. m. to
day. such a move has been imminent for some
time, and had Its origin In a circular Issued by the
brewery proprietors, which In substance an
nounced their determination to refuse recognition
of any brewers' and malsters' unions. Tbe flrst
clash between tbe employers and the men result
ing from the circular came about a week ago.
Foreman Muller, of the Ernst Brothers' brewery,
Eve employment to a non-union man named Alvin
chimin. Bachman was formerly an employe ot
the ttrrn, but lor the past year or so has been run
?a saloon. He claims that Mr. Muller proro
hlm employment on April L Bachman*s pres
ence In the brewery excited tbe anger or his six
teen brother employes, all of whom belong to tiie
Brewers' and Malsters' Union. Na is, and a vig
orous protest was made to tbe foreman. Bach
man's immediate dismissal was asked tor. Mr.
Muller refused and told the men if they did not
like It they might all leave, which they did. Later
In the day tbey reconsidered their action and ap
plied for reinstatement. Mr. Muller agreed to
take them all back except tbe one whom be con
sidered tbe ringleader ot the revolt. TBI* prove J
a new grievance to the men aad they refused to
accept the proposition.
Tbe news spread rapidly to tbe Ben employed
In other breweries, and Secretary Young was In
duced to call a meeting, which was held at tbe old
anarchist headquarters, Zeph's Hall, on Weet Lake
street. Fully 800 men crowded Into tbe room
Many of tbe speecnes made were violent in the
extreme, and It was decided to stand by rbs Er
nest Bros.' men at >11 hazards aad see that tbe
union was recognized. Tbe sentiment is favor ot
an loomedlalegeneral strike was stroi^, but as a
matter of policy tbe event was postponed pending
negotiations with tbe employer*. Tbe negotia
tions have been fruitless, and this morning 300
malsters and brewers quit work, stopping every
brewery In tbe dty except Ernst Bros/ and throw
ing oat of employment probably L500 to 2,0?jo
men. Ernst Bros.' establishment Is wotting be
