the committee of the whole incorporated the
amendment in the sundry ciril service bill
requiring the secretary of the treasury to

in the treasury, in payment of appropria

Mrs. Cleveland, aisisted by Miss Gregc,
held an informal reception at the White
House Inn afternoon.
Secretary Whitney said today that there
is no truth m the report tnat he has resigned
and added that he had no such intention.
In the river and harbor bill from the
home the cenata committee today an
nounced it had made some important
chances. Among many others the following
appropriations are recommended: For the I
Hennepin canal $300,000;for the Mississippi J
Irom Dotaioines rapids to mouln 01 Iowa
river, $200,OCO; from there to mouth of
Ohio, $500,000; thence to the head of the
passes, $2,500,000. Several amounts in the
house bill are stricken out tbe house provis
ion lor the improvement of the Missouri
from its mouth to Sioux City, which was to
be expended without tbe intervention of the
Missouri river commission; Is changed so as
to be expended under tbe direction ot the
secretary of war in accordance with the
lans, estimates and recommendations of the
LUsouri river commission.
As Mr. Kandall observed today, both
wings of the Democratic party "flopped to
gether In tbo caucus tonignt. Ino attend
ance was large, nearly all of the Democratic
representatives in the city being present,
and the proceedings were harmonious
throughout. Contrary to general expecta
tion nothing was said directly about the
tariff or pension tax proposition. The state
of the business in the house was discussed
and Speaker Carlislo by request ran
over the calendar, calling atten
tion to tho almost inextricablo
confusion of special orders on every subject
of general importance. After bearing the
statement the caucus decided to select a
committee of three members which should
be charged with tho date of selecting and
putting to the point of action such of the
measures as it should deem proper to at
tempt to pass, and Messrs, Carlisle, Morrison
and Randall wore named as members of the
committee. Tho sentiment of tbe caucus
seemed to be in favor of passim; the appro
priation bills, and tbe bills declaring forfeit
ures of land grants and then adjourned.
Soon after tho selection of the committee
Mr. Randall rose and asked what the action
of the caucus meant, whether it meant ad
journment by July 15th? Thero was a
chorus of "yes. yes," from all sides. While
no direct reference was made to the tariff
the members-present at the causcus camo
away under the impression that there would
bo no farther effort made this session to con
sider any tariff bill.
The senate committee of commerce has
nearly completed tho Iliver and Harbor bill.
It is possible, but not probable, that a few
important changes may be made at tbe
meeting tomorrow. An item in the house
bill will bo increased to aggregate $348,276
and others have been decreased to the ag
gregate of 01.550; net increaso $280,875;
total appropriations, $18,049,075.

Senator Georce todav introduced in the
satiate a bill to restrict the jurisdiction of
me avu courts, it provides that whenever
under the laws of the United State the
jurisdiction of the civil courts depends upon
the citizenship of parties the said courts
hall not hereafter have jurisdiction unless
the amount in controversy shall, exclusive
fosssU, exceed the sum of $2,000. It re
peals all the laws in contravention to tbe
provision of section 629, revised statutes,
which gave the circuit courts cognizance of
any suit to recover contents, of any prom
isory note or choses in action in favor as
signee, unless suit may have been prose
cuted in such court to recover such contents
if no assignment had been made, except in
run nffornira bills of exchance. and . re-
enacts and declares said provision to bo in
full force. Its provisions do not apply to
any case now standing.
The nresident Is so much occupied today
in considing a large batch of private pension
bills that he denied himself to all callers
and even postponod the regular cabinet
meeting. The president informed his secre
tary that he would prefer to dispose ot tbe
pension bills while his mind was on them
rather than to take up tho business of the
cabinet, unless some of tho departments had
important matters to submit requiring im
mediate attention. As there was nothing
requiring immediate attention tbe meeting
After routine morning business in the
senate the bill repealing tho pre-emption
and timber culture laws was laid before the
senate. On the request ot Mr. Pugh it was
informally laid aside to permit consideration
of a bill providing for the appointment
and compensation of a United States district
judge for tbe southern district of Alabama.
Air. lxran moved as an amendment me
provision of the bill heretofore passed by
the senate, fixing all district judges' salaries
at $5,000 a year.
Mr. Kenna and Mr. George opposed the
amendment so far as it related to the in
crease of salary.
Mr. Conger inquired how much longer we
were to waite for tho great benefit to busi
ness prophesied from the change of adminis-
Mr. George ha been very sick
and are endeavoring to recover.
jlr. Logan advocated tno amendment
which was agreed to, (the first division re
lating to salaries) by n vote oi 30 yeas to 20
nays. The second UivMtm proniomng ne
potism bv a viva vooo vole. The bill as
amended was Massed.
The bill repealing the pre-emption and
timber culture law was then proceeded
Mr. George addressed the senate on tho
bill. In the course, of bis remarks, he de
nounced the frauds committed on the public
Mr. Mitchell thought the department had
been mistaken in many cases as to what was
called irauds.
Mr. Plumb cited figures to show the
enormous transactions in public lands. In
1881 thero wero 55,945 entries under the
homestead law embracing nearly 8,000,000
acres. Tho figures for 1885 wero nearly the
same. In this enormous aggregate of en
tries there had no doubt been somo frauds,
meaning thereby a failure to make a strict
technical compliance with tho regulation
made by the government. In referring to
the recent order of tho land department.
suspending execution of tho preemption and
timber culture lands, Mr. 1'lumD re
marked that whatever purpose there was in
that order, it was tho purpose of
tbe land department and not of
tho secretary of the interior.
With regard to the absorption of tho pub
lic lands in the south Mr. Plumb inquired
whv the land department should single out
tbe poor settler in tho wilds of Dakota while
urnoruur the organizations that are absorb
ing tbe public lands in tho southern states? It
seeu.eu singular iu uiiu iaai hi vmixt ui mtj
government should be so seriously affected
by what Mr. Plumb could only denominate
a "political, geographical and isothermal
Mr. Georgo said tbo absorption referred
to in tho south, so tar, at least, as Mississippi
was concerned, was not in violation of law,
but in pursuance of law.
Mr. Stanford stated that the provision of
the bill as amended in tbo senate would ab
solutely prevent the reclamation of
tbe desert lands. There were
enormous quantities of such lands,
he said, not worth a penny an acre
and they could only be reclaimed by tbe ex
penditure of largo sums of money. In order
le make reclamation possible he moved to
restore certain words already struck out by
tbe Senate.
Mr. Plumb feared tho amendment might
lead to fraud and opposed it.
Mr. Stanford's motion was rejected. The
bill then came to a vote and was passed
yeas 34, nays 20.
On motion of Mr. Dolph a committee of
conference was ordered on the disagreeing
votes of the house and scnato on the bill.
Tho Fitz John Porter bill was then laid
before tbe senate.
Mr. Sewell said it was the samo bill that
had passed before there was nothing to bo
said now that would throw any light on its
subject a mere, statement of facts would be
aumci&nt. Mr. Sowell then recited the
salient factajn the military history of Gen
eral Porter, and tbe clerk read a number of
resolutions of Grand Army posts urging the
passago of the bill. The people, ho contin
ued, had finally come to see that instead of
being a criminal. General Porter
was a martyr. He comes now be
fore you, said Mr. Sewell iu conclusion,
I trust the last timo to ask for justice; nay,
Mr. President, to demand it. The time has
gone by to ask that favors may be granted
to this man that has been wronged. I I
who know him as a cilizon of my state,
and as a man who lived in the front of many
a fight I now demand justice of the senate
of the United States for this man who has
been so grossly wronged.
Mr. Logan obtained tho floor to reply to
Mr. Sewell, and after an executive session
the senate adjourned.
Mr. Long of Massachusetts, defended
Charles Francis Adams from certain charges
made recently by Mr. Henley of California,
regarding the management of the Union
Pacific road, and quoted facts to show that
Mr. Henley bad erred in some of his state
ments. The house then went into committee ot
the whole on the sundry civil bill. The
pending amendment was offered by Mr.
Warner of Obio, providing that no money
appropriated for tho bureau of engraving
and printing shall bo used in printing
United States notes of large denomination in
lieu of notes of smaller denomination, can
celled or released. The amendment was
agreed to 99 to 78.
Mr. Cannon of Illinois, offered a substi
tute for the engraving and printing bureau
paragraph which would have the effect ol
placing twenty-five additional employes un
der tho provisions of tbo civil service law.
Mr. Uolman of Indiana, raised a point of
order which was sustained and tho substi
tute ruled out.
Mr. Gibson, of West Virginia, offered an
amendment providing that nothing in tbe
section shall bo construed as subjecting the
appointees in the bureau of engraving and
printing to civil service rules. Tbe object
of his amendment, he said, was to give a
chance to the party in power to control to
some extent the offices to be run by that
party. While be repudiated tbe doctrine
that to the victor belonged the spoils, he
did claim that to the dominant party belonged
the right to run an administration for which
it was responsible. No sensible people
ever sent out an army officered by the ene
my: no business man ever undertook to
run his business under the conlroll of his
Mr. E. B. Taylor, of Ohio, repudiated tbe
doctrine that to tho victor belonged tho
spoils; it was born of corruption; it was
itself corruption. No citizen of tbe union
had a right to demand an office because
he wss a Democrat or a Republican,
he only had a right to demand it because he
was an American citizen and because he
was honest and competent. He wished such
unwise men as the gentlsman from West
Virginia should, have tho ascendency in the
Democratic party. No party in this coun
try could live with such avowed principles.
Mr. Adams of Now York Did not your
party flourish well!
Mr. Tavlor It did, and it died because it
continued to hold that doctrine too leng.
Mr. Warner How long was the Republi
can governor of Ohio in office before he
turned every Democrat out?
Mr.McKinley The Democrats all crossed
over the Ohio river and were out of the
Mr. Warner That was- the senate, not
the officers; they stopped as long as they
Mr: Mniikcn, of Maine I L they ware
Democrats they stayed as long as they could;
there is no doubt of that.
Mr. Taylor said no party could grow
which avowed the policy that to the victors
belong tbe spoils at patriotic He deplored
the anxiety of tho people to get at the flesh
pots of Egypt.
Mr. Warner remarked that it was one
thing to preach and another to practice.
The Republicans preached well but their
practice had been very different. He be
lieved in civil service reform, but there
never would be a state of rest in the civil
service until a state of equilibrium had been
reached, in which the office should be
shared between the parties. The amend
ment was rejected.
The section of the bill concerning the
coast and geodetic survey having been
reached according to previous agreement
general debate was in order and Mr. Ryan,
of .Kansas, proceeded to critdte the oilL
He said there bad been no diminution of ex
penses thus far by tbe Democrtic adminis
tration, while the expenditures xor me next
fiscal year would not be less than
In that estimate he took no account of the
navy, coast defences or educational bill, the
removal of the limitations on arrears of pen
sions, the Mexican pension bill, and other
pension bills. Whether the revenues would
suffice to meet the expenditures would de
pend upon the degree ot general prosperity
of tbe county. What assurance had the
people that the administration was malting
an honest effort to curtail the expenditures
when the house had declared that more than
$30,000,000 of the estimates were not needed?
Mr. Herbert, of Alabama, speaking of the
coast surveys, said: I got at the length of
time necessary to finish the work. Experi
ence showed that tho calculation of the
superintendent must be multiplied by lour,
and applying this rule to Mr. Hilgard's
calculation it would take fully twenty-six
years from today, or one hundred
and fifteen vears frem tbe date of
organization of tbe survey to complete this
work. For fifty years the surrey bad bean
under civilian management, while in his
(Herbert's) opinion it should never have
been taken from the control ef tbe navy
department. He believed that tho bureau
wished to spin out its survey until it was
given another class of work that might be
continued indefinitely. He severely criti
cized tbe large amounts expended for un
necessary topographical work.
Tbe committee then rose and tbo house
Anarchists Convicted.
Milwaukee, June 24. The jury in the
cases of of the anarcbists.'John Pretteman
and Henry Lampel, this morning brought
in a verdict of guilty as to tbe former, and
not guilty as to tho latter. It was shown
that Pretteman took a leading part in the
riots at the Brand stone works and Bayview
rolling mills. The case of Henry Danetl is
now occupying the attention of the court.
The penalty Fn the case of John Prette

Tho trial of Alderman Rudziski. tbe al
leged instigator of the riots, was resumed
before a special committee of tho common
council this morning. At noon an adjourn
ment was taken until 2 o'clock tomorrow,
when the report will be decided on. The
chances appear to be that at least a portion
of the committee will report in his favor.

asked tho country to tako him independent
of Parnellites, yet he took the office as a
slave to Parnell. Never had there been a
more disgraceful surrender.
Sexton in his speech at St. James Hall
yesterday, said the case should secure fifteen
seats in the metropolis and that number
would be sufficient to counteract a ma
jority of thirty against Gladstone.
A resolution in favor of the home rule
was carried with only one dissent A large
proportion of the audience were Irish. Bsr

Goschcn, speaking atEdingburg last night
said that tho Irish question was not a test
question beforo the Liberal party.
Earl Spencer, in a speech at Bristol last
night, said that the land bill was not a bribe
gift to landlords, whose rights should be
considered like those of any other class. It
was of tho greatest importance that this
question should, if possible, be" settled at
the same time with tbe home rule bill. If a
parliament wero granted on the terms pro
posed a grievous blow would be directed
against tbe dynamiter and Fenian.
It is stated that Right Honorable M. E.

Chicago, Juno 24. Tho situation in the
yards of tho Lake Shore railroad in this city
remains unchanged. The regular passen
ger trains are moving as usual, but an ef
fective blockade of freight traffic has oc
curred. No freight trains have been moved
and up to 8 o'clock there had been no at
tempt of any character to make up any
trains. In-coming freight trains bavo all
been stopped at the stations outside of the
city and judging the former experiences ol
tbe railroad company, unless the state af
fords protection tho company will be pow
erless against the strikers. The town of
Lake, within the precincts of which the
strike is conflni-d, has a very small police
force and is unable to copo with the strikers
and their adherents. Fow of the town of
Lake police were at Forty-third street this
morning, where a large crowd bad gathered
at 8 a. m.
One of tbo strikers this morning said:
"Tbe only attempt at an explanation of the
cause of the strike appears in a rumor that
it was tbe result of a preconcerted stock
jobbing scheme. A party in the town of
Lake and tbe stock yards speculators had
sold short a heavy blccc of Lako Shore
stock to bear the market in their own inter
est, and they negotiated with a few of tbe
leaders of the switchmen in tho town of
Lake to bring about a ktnke. If this is true
it is not likely that tho strike r.ill continue
any length of time."
One of the officials of thi Lake Shore
Railroad company stated this morning that
tbe company would attempt to move tome
cars this afternoon. Tbe engineers and fire
men express no sympathy with the strikers,
but it is thought by parties in the neighbor
hood that when they are called upon to take
out their engines they will bo as reluctant
as tbey were during the late troubles.
The shorthand acceunt of the conference
between Newell and Sheriff Hancbatt have
been published which support Newell's
statement. The account alto that Sheriff
Hanchett signed the paper pledging that
the men would be discharged within sixty
days, that when at the end of. tho order
asked Newell to sign their paper. Tbe lat
ter declared he would not be a party to any
such compact, and renewed the statement
that tbe men could remain as long as tbey
chose in the company's employ.
John Newell, of the Lake Shore, in an
open card published today, says in regard
to the statement that the company had
agreed to discharge tbe non-union men in
its employ, "I desire to say that no such
agreement was ever made by mo with any
person. I never mado any promise, ex
pressed er implied, that the eight men in
question should be transferred to other po
sitions, nor was any such promise made on
behalf of the Lake Shore company. But on
the contrary I positively refused at all times
to make any such promise or permit any
such understanding in connection with
Chicago, June 24. This evening when
the regular night switch engine left tho
roung bouse, Thomas Collins, one of the
strikers, boarded the machine, and in a mo
ment had induced Charles Coles, the en
gineer, to turn back. Coles told the yard
marster that it would be impossible for him
to go through tbe mob.
During tbe day notice was given the
switchmen that unless tbey report for duty
tomorrow they aro to consider themselves
discharged, and are requested to call for
their pay. It is asserted this 07ening by
leaders among the strikers, that before
nightfall tomorrow Toledo, Buffalo, Detroit
and Cleveland will be included in the strike
and that a general tie-up in other depart
ments of tbe companys work it not improb
able. Shortly after 3 o'clock an engine in charge
of Engineer Shear pulled out of the round
house at 41st street. It was immediately
surrounded by strikers. The excitement for
a time became very marked, and the men for
a time were very threatening. The police
arretted one of the mott violent strikers and
tucceeded in clearing tbe track, after which
the engine started up to 43rd street to the
vacinity of a caboose which was abandoned
yesterday. Tbe crowd grew momentarily
greater and more boisterous, and tbe courage
of the engineer finally deserted him. lie
took the engine back to the round house.
Tbe crowd cheered frantically when tbe
effort to move the train was abandoned.
At various newspaper offices this evening
a committee of strikers exhibited as an ex
planation of their course the.following com
munication dated during tbe former strike
and written in Sheriff llanchett's chirogra
pby upon one of hit official letter heads:

SramariEXD, HU., June 24. The com
mittee on platform at the state Prohibition
convention, reported a series of resolutions
which were unanimously adopted declaring
tbe principles embodied in the following
Whereas. Tbe liquor traSo is justly
charged with organized and rebellious op
position to the existing statutes, with mer
ciless opposition to thousands of innocent
women and children with merciless aUempts
to debauch the morals of our youths; with
the parentage of the mott terrible crime, and
lawMtsnett and misery prevailing among ui;
with coBsptracv to corrupt tbe politics and
legislation, and with contribution and sym
pathy and aid to rioters, communists and
saarchiots. therefore, we call on ail good
estisaes to renounce their allegiance to the
party allies of that traffic and unite with us
for the extirpation of this obvious cause of
crimes, disorder, social disintegration and
abounding misery.

Special Dispatch to the Daily Eagle.
Ktxgmax, June 24. The members of the
central committee of Kingman county will
meet at the court house in this city next
Saturday. The business to come before the
meeting is the selection of delegates to the
state and judicial conventions. It is quite
probable that at that time some steps will
alto be taken regarding a county conven
tion. In the state convention this county
will be entitled to but three delegates, but
that will net deter her from presenting tbe
name of one of her honored citizens for a
petition on tbo state ticket. It now trans
pires that the friends of D. R. Green, tbe
famous cannon ball stage man, are deter
mined to present bit name as a candidate for
treasurer of tbe state. His following all
through the Southwest, where he is so well
known, will be very great, and justly so, too,
for to D. R. Green, of all other residents of
of this part of the state, is due a very con
siderable amount of tho credit of haying it
settled up so rapidly. Kingman's load in
behalf of D. R. Green will be followed by all
new counties cf the Southwest and many cf
the old counties in other parts of tbe state.
Lawrence, June 24. The Republican

delegates were elected in every precinct, and
it is conceded that tho other precincts will
elect Tbscber delegates. Tho vote was heavy
although there was little or no opposition.

A Novel Procedure.
St. Louis, Juno 24. There was an inter
esting scene enacted at the court of criminal
correction today in connection with tbe
election of a special judge to try tho cases
of the anarcbistt charged with endorsing at
an unlawful assemblage the action of their
Chicago brethren during tbe Haymarket
riot in that city. There were only a score
of the members of tbo bar present to par
ticipate in the eloction and tbe majority of
these evidently favored tho defense, lor Win.

doctrines, was chosen. Judge Noonan
recognized the significance of this choice
and knowing him to be at present visiting
in New York city, ordered that ho qualify
