THE GAMBLERS KICK.
Eepresentatives of the Brokers Fight
the Bntterworth Bill.
FINANCIAL TBODBLE PREDICTED
If the Operations in Futures Are Stopped
TH2 SEME AKD THE WOELFS PAIE
"Washis CTOlf, April 11. An interesting
hearing was held to-day by the House Com
mittee on Agriculture on Mr. Butterworth's
bill to prevent dealings in options and
futures. There were present delegations
from the Hew York Produce and Cotton
Exchanges, the Chicago Board of Trade,
ana the New Orleans Cotton Exchange, all
ol them to protest against the passage of
the bill, which has already been recom
mended by the committee.
Murray Kelson, one of the Commissioners
of Cook county, 111., was the first speaker
representing the Chicago Board of Trade.
Mr. Kelson said that the Chicago Board of
Trade, and all exchanges in the country,
were in sympathy with the objects of the
bill as expressed in the first section to
abolish trading in privileges ("puts and
calls") and bucket shop dealings. But to
enforce the provisions against trades made
for future delivery of the goods would be to
force out of business small dealers and con
centrate the trade in the hands of large cap
italists who could afford and were able to
purchase crops and hold them for a rise.
A DISASTER PREDICTED.
These small dealers act largely as agents
for the farmer and buyer both. To stop
sales for future delivery, Mr. Nelson said,
would be to interrupt and disarrange the
entire financial system of the country. The
bankers of the country move its crops and
depend upon the transactions of small deal
ers in country towns for the basis of their
transactions. He proceeded to explain in
detail the operation by which the grain
reached the market from the producer, in
which operation the farmer, the local agent,
the broker in the money center and the
banker were all enraged.
Mr. Kelson repeated that the result of the
bill would be to crush out the small dealers
and place the farmer at the mercy of the
large capitalist, who can buy cash grain;
but they will buy at such a price that they
can hold it until Gabriel blows his horn
without sustaining loss. In answer to a
question by Mr. Allen, of Michigan, Mr.
Kelson said that local banks could not sup
ply and cculd not get sufficient money to
move the croDS of the country, nor conld
the local dealer or agent. It must be sup
plied from the money centers.
A. rEETINEKT QUESTION.
Eeferring to the taxing section, Mr.Kel
son asked why, if the committee believed
the business to be honest, a license was re
quired? Certainly not for the revenue to
be derived. If the business is to be made a
penal offense, why not say so in the first in
btance, and declare it unlawful iu so many
George C. Martin, of the New York Prod
uce Exchange, spoke against the bill. He
Eaid that the farmer never before received
to great per cent of the value of his crops as
now. Twenty years ago the cost of trans
porting a bushel of wheat from Chicago to
'New York by lake and canal was lSi
cents; now the rate is 5 9-10 cents. It may
be asked, continued Mr. Martin, why are
prices now so low, why commissions so re
duced, freights reduced, and the export
trade the largest ever known?
CEOPS TOO LARGE.
In his opinion it was because of the recent
" series of large crops from which had been
accumulated in store 200,000,000 bushels of
corn more than ever before in the history of
the country. The merchant bat suffered
losses along with thefarmer. In 1875 the
commissions on a bushel of corn amounted
to - cents; now the entire crop of the
country was marketed on a commission of
H cent If the bill passes Mr. Martin said
that three-quarters of the export trade of the
country would be proscribed.
J. O. Bloss, of the New York Cotton Ex
change, read an argument against the pass
age of the bill prepared by a committee of
that exchange, prefacing it with a protest
against the bill signed bj the leading bank
ers of New York, in which they state that
the passage of the bill would work great
damage to legitimate trade, and that the
banks find their risks of advance under the
present system of business less than under
the old. From the argument of the com
mittee the following extract is made:
NOT SO VIOLENT.
The effect ol toe trading for future delivery
has been to give the markets of the world a
less violent character: haTe reduced the risks
of merchants and Dankers, and at the same
time have secured to the planters of cotton a
higher ranee of values than was the case be
Jore the existence of the method of trading for
future delivery. No legislation has yet been
able to reculate values of anything, aod as a
striking illustration of this fact may be cited
the law which Tia passed by Congress to pro
hibit public trading in cold. The effect of that
legislation bad for the purpose of reducing
the premium on gold, was to advance the price
from 2 20 to J2 8a. The repeal of the law re
sulted in the immediate decline of the price to
that from which it started.
Mr. Bloss was followed by J. W.
Labouisse. who with General J. "J. Hazard,
of Bhode Island, and Ii. F. Berje reore
sented the New Orleans Cotton Exchange.
He stated that he fully indorsed Mr. Bloss'
statements, and continned the argument that
the system of contracts for futnre delivery
had greatly reduced the fluctuations in the
price of cotton. In proof of this he referred
to the conditions surrounding the cotton
crop of 1889. That was the largest one ever
raised in the United States 7,600,000 bales.
Yet the fluctuation iu prices amounted to
only 1J cents a pound, and '95 per cent of
the ciop has been already moved.
MONET FOE THE PLANTERS.
The lowest price touched 9J cents was
in ucioDer, ana jsir. JLabouisse expressed
the opinion that had it not been tor the
system of contracts for future delivery, the
planter would have been compelled to take
a cent less at that time. Upon the question
of speculation Mr. Labouisse said that it
the future contract system was wiped out
the exchanges of New York and New Or
leans would cease to exist. There are but
five exchanges in the world where cotton
"futures" are dealt in Liverpool, New
York, New Orleans, Bremen and Havre.
To close out New York and New Orleans
would be to transfer the business to Europe
and build up the exchange there. The
business will go, he said, cotton will be
raised and sold, and if our merchants and
dealers are not allowed to buy and sell the
dealers in Europe will do so.
In the course of his remarks, Mr.
Labouisse asserted that, owing to the peculiar
conditions and necessities of the cotton
trade, the producer could not sell directly
to the consumer, even if he wanted to, be
cause he cannot tell what grade his cotton
will be when gathered. He was illustrating
the modus operandi ot trading by a case in
his own experience, where he had sold to
the agent ot n Havre broker for a French
cotton mill, a large cumber of bales of
JUST THAT KIND.
"'"Was the cotton in existence at the time
the trade was made?" asked Chairman
"It was not."
"That is exactly the kind of transaction
we are reaching after," responded the Chair
man. The proceedings of the committee were in
terrupted by a yea and nay vote in the
House. As the members left the room they
were engaged in an animated discussion
with the visiting delegations upon the
merits of the lecent failure of Moses Fraley,
the St. Louis broker, who went down under
a' too heavy load of wheat. The committee
men were arguing that that failure was a
justification of the bill, and the visitors en-
ucavurcu m enow inat it was a mere mci-1
5iM feCtfae trade; aad.wat.notitn illattra-'
tion of the general methods or experience of
Chairman Funston says that no more
hearings will be had.
PLANS FOETHE FAIR.
The Senate Propose! to HnTe Any Number
of Celebrations The Chicago BUI
as Amended In the
Washington, April 11. Just before
the Senate adjourned this afternoon Senator
Hawley reported the World's Fair bill,
with amendments agreed upon by the com
mittee. The first one was to section 5, relat
ing to the acceptance of the site by the
National Commission, with the provision
that the site and buildings shall be deemed
adequate to the purposes of the exposition
and the further proviso, "That said com
mission shall be satisfied that the said cor
poration has an actual bona fide and valid
subscription to its capital stock of at least
The amendment inserts after the word
"stock," the words "which shall secure the
payment." The following was proposed as
a new section:
Section 8 The President is hereby cm
powered and directed to hold a naval review
in New York harbor in April. 1893, and to ex
tend to foreign nations an invitation to send
ships of war to join the United States navy in
the rendezvous at Hampton Roads, and pro
ceed thence to said review. The President is
further empowered and directed to make Ar
rangements for the unveiling of a statue of
Christopher Columbus at Washington with ap
propriate ceremonies and civic and military
parade, under bis general direction, after said
naval review, and not less than five days be
fore the opening of said Exposition, and to in
vite the attendance thereat ot foreign repre
sentatives. THE DEFEXDAKT WAS DROWSED.
Ills Forfeited Bail Will Now be Relumed to
New York, April 1L Olif Fearing,
master of a steam vessel plying between
Kew York and San Domingo, was arrested
in August, 1883, for smuggling cigars. He
was brought before the United States Com
missioner of the district, and after an ex
amination was released on 2,000 bail with
the understanding that, after a trip to San
Domingo, he was to come back and stand
trial on the charge. Months passed and
Fearing did not appear. It was supposed
that he had ran away from his troubles, and
the Commissioner forfeited the bail.
Yesterday a lawyer appeared in the
United States Circuit Court, where Judge
Benedict was sitting, and asked that the
forfeiture of the bond be repealed, as it had
been discovered that the vessel containing
Fearing had never reached San Domingo,
and that the crew had never afterward been
heard of. Seven years had elapsed, and the
District Attorney said that he has no doubt
that the vessel and her crew were lost at
sea. Judge Benedict thought the request a
proper one, and granted the order asked.
Philadelphia!)! Ask Congress to Grant Sub
sidies lo American Merchant Vessels.
Philadelphia, April 11. A rather
slimly attended meeting was held to-day in
the Board of Trade rooms in response to a
call requesting the attendance of business
men at a meeting in the interest of the
passaco of the bill now before Congress to
encourage American commerce by giving a
subsidy of 30 cents per ton for every thou
sand miles of travel by American vessels,
sail or steam, between American and for
Resolutions were adopted urging the
adoption of the subsidy bill, and providing
for the appointment of a committee of busi
ness men of Philadelphia to present the res
olutions, and "a memorial for a line of
steamers from this port to the west coast of
Africa, to both houses of Congress for their
action during the present session, and to
urge the passage of the bill referred to with
such proper restrictions as will secure the
advantages of the same to our commercial
centers and the country at large."

Treasurer Jameson Acquitted.
Cincinnati, April 1L Ex-Treasurer
Martin A. Jameson, of Warren county, O.,
who has been on trial at Lebanon 'for sev
eral days for an indictment which charged
him with embezzling a large amount of the
county funds, was to-day acquitted.
IS not only a distressing complaint, of
itself, but, by causing the blood to
become depraved and the system en
feebled, is the parent of innumerable
maladies. That Ayer's Sarsaparilla
is the best cure for Indigestion, even
when complicated with Liver Complaint,
is proved by the following testimony
from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of Brockwa
"Liver complaint and indigestion
made my life a burden and came near
ending my existence. For more than
four years I suffered untold agony, was
reduced almost to a skeleton, and hardly
bad strength to drag myself about All
kinds of food distressed me, and only
the most delicate could be digested at
aii. "Within the time mentioned several
physicians treated me without giving re
lief. Nothing that I took seemed to do
any permanent good until I commenced
the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, which
has produced wonderful results. Soon
after commencing to take the Sarsapa
rilla I could see an improvement in my
condition. My appetite began to return
and with it came the ability to digest
all the food taken, my strength im
proved each day, and after a few
months of faithful attention to your
directions, I found myself a well
' woman, able to attend to all household
dnties. The medicine has given me a
new lease of life."
