Senator Stewart and Major
Each Makes Insinuations About
the Other.
The Imported Liquors Bill Passes the
Public Building Bills in the House—The
Senate Finance Committee Gets
Down to Business.
Associated Press Dispatches. I
Washington, May 29. —In the senate
today Stewart, rising to a question of
personal privilege, had read an article
from a local paper containing a state
ment by Major Powell, director of the
geological survey, in reference to
Stewart's recent resolution, in which
Powell spoke of the movement as in
stigated by land sharks and speculators
for the purpose "of gobbling up irrigable
lands and establishing a sort of hydraulic
feudal system." Stewart sketched an
outline of what had been done in the
work of stimulating irrigation in the far
west recently, and the appropriations.
Powell, he said, had used more than half
of the appropriations in vast and expen
sive surveys of no practical use for the
object in view, and intimated that
Powell had enormous power in both
houses from his giving employment to a
lot of young men, the sons and relatives
of members of congress, and that he
kept an enormous lobby in Washington
to control the action of congress. The
bureau of geology and mineralogy was
nothing, Stewart said, but a mass of
humbug and foolishness.
Gorman defended Major Powell as a
valuable public officer who discharged
his duty faithfully.
Teller introduced a joint resolution
setting forth that it is the determined
policy of the United States government
to use both gold and silver as full legal
tender money under the ratio now exist
ing in the United States, or which may
hereafter be established by the United
States alone, or acting in accord with
other nations. Laid on the table and
ordered printed.
The imported liquor bill was then
taken up, the question being on the fol
lowing substitute, offered by Gray, from
the judiciary committee; "That fer
mented, distilled or other intoxicating
liquors, transferred as an article of com
merce or brought into any state or terri
tory from a point or place outside such
state or territory, for use, consumption
or sale therein, shall not be exempt, nor
shall the owner or person in possession
thereof, be exempt from the operation of
the laws or regulations, control of po
lice or taxing power of such state or ter
ritory, affecting or applicable to all other
like property, by reason of such liquors
being in the original package of impor
tation or transportation as subjects of
interstate or foreign commerce."
Gray's amendment was agreed to —
yeas, 26; nays, 20. The nays were
Allen, Allison, Bate, Blair, Blodgett,
Coke, Daves, Edmunds, Eustis, George,
Hoar, Ingalls, Moody, Morrill, Paddock,
Plumb, Power, Sherman, Vest, Wilson
Vest moved to amend the substitute
by making it apply to fresh beef, veal,
mutton and pork, and argued that if the
bill was to become a law it should not
be confined to intoxicating liquor. This
was the first time he knew of the su
preme court being a suggestor of rem
edies. The proposed law would produce
chaos, but if he were wrong in his posi
tion and the friends of the bill were
right, then he wanted to give the cattle
raisers of the west the same privileges
granted the lowa legislature in regard |
to the exclusion of alcoholic stimulants.
He had served on the senate committee
in relation to the beef business,, and
found an alarming state of things, m the
inspection of beef cattle.
The vote on Vest's amendment was—
yeas 5, nays 32, the yeas being Call,
Morgan, Payne, Stewart anfi Vest.
Wilson (Iowa) offered a substitute for
Gray's amendment, m-oviding that
liquors transported irfto any state or
territory for use, consumption, or sale,
or storage, shall on ibeir arrival be sub
ject to the operation and effect of the
laws of such state/ or territory, enacted
in the exercise of / its police power, and
shall not be exenffpt therefrom by reason
of their being/ introduced in original
Wilson's ? übstitute was adopted by 23
to 20. ,
The brl!i was then passed, 34 to 10, as
follows: /
Yeas-/Allen, Allison, Blair, Call,
Casey, o;olquitt, Cullom, Davis, Dixon,
Dolph ./Edmunds, George, Hawley, His
cock,/ Hoar, Ingalls, Jones (Nevada),
Mcfyiillin, Mitchell, Moody, Morrill,
Paddock, Piatt, Plumb, Power, Pugh,
Sawyer, Spooner, Stewart, Stockbridge,
.Walthall, Washburne, Wilson (Iowa).
/ Nays—Bate, Blodgett, Cockrell, Coke,
/ Harris, Jones (Arkansas), Turpie,Vance,
J Vest, Voorhees.
' Voorhees moved to amend the title by
{ making it read: "A bill to overrule the
j decision of the supreme court of the
' United States in its interpretation and
I construction of the constitution on the
subject of commerce between the sev
eral states, and thereby relieve the state
of lowa from the consequences of her
own misguided legislation." Rejected.
The title was then amended, on mo
tion of Wilson (Iowa), to read : "A bill
to limit the effect of regulations of com
/ merce between the several states, and
I with foreign countries, in certain
/ cases."
' The river and harbor bill was received
from the house and referred to com
mittee, and the senate adjourned until
Public Building Appropriations Under
Washington, May 29.—1n the house,
I today, the committee on public lands
\ reported back the Senate bill (with
\ amendments) for the general forfeiture
\ of land grants. Ordered re-committed.
J The senate bill was passed for the re
-1 lief of the widow of Rear-Admiral
V David McDougal.
\ The house then went into committee of
tlhe whole on public building bills.
\The following public building bills
wiW laid aside favorably: Stockton,
California, $75,000: Pueblo, Colorado,
$15.(6,000; Portland, Oregon, $400,000.
Tfeere was a lively tilt on the question
of public building bills, brought out by
the thill for a public building at Bar Har
bor, Alaine, ($75,000.)
MilJls had asked what the direction of
the committee was, and Milliken replied
that two republican bills would be called
up and then one democratic bill.
Mills thought this unfair and that the
committee should alternate between the
two sides.
Allen declared that the whole system
was vicious, and that politics should
have nothing to do with the question.
The committee finally rose. Tbe agri
cultural bill was reported and the house
adjourned until Monday.
Washington Notes.
Washington, May 29.—The house
committee on foreign affairs has decided
to report favorably the bill for the sur
vey for a railway connecting North and
South America.
A bill for the erection of a public
building at Walla Walla, Washington,
($40,000), was reported to the house to
The land grant forfeiture bill, reported
to the house today by Payson, of Illinois,
is made up of parts of the senate bill
and of the bill originally reported by the
house committee. Section two of the
original house bill, allowing settlers to
make entry on forfeited lands under the
provisions of the homestead law, is part
of the new bill. The cost to settlers of
restored lands is fixed at $1.25 an acre.
Senator Plumb today proposed as an
amendment to the McKinley bill the
bill introduced by him for the appoint
ment of a permanent customs commis
sion to investigate and report upon all
matters affecting the tariff.
The railway commissioners' conven
tion today adopted resolutions favoring
a uniform classification and greater uni
formity of annual reports and railway
accounting. On the matter of safety ap
pliances, the members of the convention
almost unanimously favored legislation
requiring railroads to be supplied with
the latest improved couplers, brakes,

Speculators—Congressman Vandever's
Arid Lands Bill. z W
Washington, May 29.—Senator Stew
art's resolution calling upon the secre
tary of the interior to give reasons why
the money appropriated for irrigation
has been used.by.Major Powell for topog
raphy, a matter, it is claimed having
bearing upon the question of irrigation,
has caused Powell to become indignant.
He now declares, in an interview, that
he is fighting a combination of specu
lators, backed by $5,000,000, who are
attempting to secure public lands and
irrigable waters.
Vandever's Bill.
Chairman Vandever. of the house
committee on arid lands, has introduced
a bill which, it is understood, will
be favorably reported. It provides
for the continuance of the irrigation
survey under Major Powell; the segre
gation of irrigable districts, etc. The
districts will include the entire catch
ment area upon which each depends for
its supply. States and territories must
enact laws to carry out the purposes for
which the districts are organized. The
districts are to elect five irrigation com
missioners each, as well as courts and
superintendents of forestry, pasturage
and irrigation. Individuals can acquire
only forty acres of irrigable land under
the homestead law, but the coal, min
eral and townsite laws apply as hereto
fore in the arid region. The
users of water must pay their
proper share of the cost of constructing
irrigation works. All dams, reservoirs
and canal sites will remain in posses
sion of the general government. Irriga
tion works can be constructed, however,
under regulations and laws established
by the 'commissioners in accordance
with the laws of the state or territory in
whiyh the district is located, if not in.

The Senate Finance Committee Gets
Down to Business.
Washington, May 29. —The senate
finance committee this morning took up
the tariff bill and considered it by para
graphs, subject to subsequent action.
The chemical schedule was first taken
up. It was decided at first not to recom
mend free alcohol in the arts, as that
question affected many other items in
1 the schedule. After reading over
thirty-eight items, thirteen of the most
important being passed without action,
the noon hour arrived.
The question of future meetings being
reached, Senator Sherman suggested
daily sessions of ten hours each, in or
der to hurry matters through. This
met opposition from both sides. Car
lisle and Voorhees said it was a waste of
time, as the matters must be discussed
in the senate anyhow.
Voorhees thought the republicans
could agree on a bill, and the democrats,
if they thought best, could present a
minority report. Hiscock, Jones and
Morrill spoke in a similar strain.
Hiscock moved that a sub-committee
on each side be appointed to prepare
such schedules as would be advocated
by its party on the floor of the senate;
that each side submit its schedule to the
other as soon as prepared. Adopted.
No change was made as to the ques
tion of giving oral hearings. The changes
made in the chemical schedule today are
all reductions. They were prepared by
republicans,supported by the solid demo
cratic vote, and the vote of the member
making the motion. None of them are
of any significance.
The committee will grant a hearing \o
representatives of importers Tuesday.
The democratic members will not formu
late a bill, but will express their views
in a report.

Cheered to the Echo—Col. Ander
son's Eloquent Address.
Associated Press Dispatches. 1
Richmond, Va., May 29.—The weather
was cider and beautiful this morning.
Soon after daylight knots of those who
were to take part in tbe parade began
gathering upon the streets. Confeder
ate camps of military and civilians
continued to arrive. Country folks
poured into town in ancient as well as
modern vehicles. Now and then a band
of music started the crowds cheering by
playing "Bonnie Blue Flag," "Dixie"
and "Maryland, my Maryland." As
some favorite commander was recog
nized by the crowd a yell arose from
them, which was carried along until he
halted or turned off into some side
street. As the various commands
reached their starting points with some
familiar officer at their head, cheer after
cheer rent the air. The chief marshal,
General Fitzhugh Lee, and Generals
Early, Johnston and Longstreet re
ceived similar ovations as they moved
about from place to place. The proces
sion started promptly at noon, and was
composed of representatives of nearly all
the old confederate regiments in the
The line of march was densely
crowded. As the old chieftains of the
confederacy were recognized, hats came
off, and the old yell came from thou
sands of throats. Arrived at the statue
and the distinguished guests seated,
Governor McKinney called the assem
blage to order. After prayer, General
Early was presented as chairman of the
meeting. He introduced Colonel Ander
son as orator of the day.
Colonel Anderson's Address.
Colonel Anderson's address was an
eloquent one, in which, while abating
no jot of love and admiration for Lee, so
couched it in words as not to jar upon
tlie sensibilities of the most ardent
unionist. He began with the statement
that a people was known by its monu
ments, and by that record the world al
ways gave its most devoted admiration
to warriors. He sketched in a
masterly way the transcendent
qualities necessarily united in
a great general. Lee, however, was not
merely one of the greatest captains, but
a man of absolutely unblemished chris
tian life. It was the singular felicity of
Virginia to have produced two great
stainless military leaders, Washington
and Lee. The orator gave an elaborate
biographical review of the general's life;
dwelt upon the painful struggle which it
cost him to decide whether to give his
allegiance to the nation or his native
state. Finally, in the face of ambitious
temptings, in the face of an offer of the
command of the union army, he decided
that duty called him to stand by Vir
ginia. The speaker then sketched Lee's
campaigns in illustration of his military
genius; touched upon the moderation
and good sense of the north at the close
of the struggle, and its happy results;
spoke of Lee's subsequent quiet, digni
fied life, and closed with a brilliant
Colonel Anderson's address aroused
great enthusiasm.
General Joseph E. Johnston then un
veiled the statue amid shouts and the
booming of cannon, long continued.
Description of the Monument.
The Lee monument is situated at the
intersection of two broad streets in the
fashionable residence section. It con
sists of a white granite pedestal, forty
feet high, with six pedestals for statues
of Lee's generals, to be placed hereafter.
Upon the pedestal stands a bronze eques
trian statue of Lee, twenty feet high. It
represents Lee upon the battlefield of
Gettysburg. While the figures of both
horse and man are in repose, all theatri
cal effects being avoided, it is full of life
and spirit. It is the work of Mercie, the
French sculptor.
Washington's Statue Decorated.
New York, May 29. —A Richmond,
Va., special says: Some one climbed
the statue of George Washington this
morning and put confederate flags in the
hands of the figure. tSeveral protests
have been entered against the flags
being allowed to remain there, but the
authorities have refused to take them
down. At noon they were still there.
A Ituckeye Pedagogue Married Six Times
in Three Year*.
Cleveland, May 29. —James Clinton
Waite, the principal of the school at
Geneva, who engaged himself to several
of his young lady pupils, obtained li
censes to marry two ot them, and was
united clandestinely to one April 28th,
whom he deserted next morning, was
captured at Chippewa lake and taken to
Geneva yesterday. Detectives had been
on his track for two weeks, and they
have learned that he has married no less
than six women within three years.
Convicts Escape.
Trenton, N. J., May 29. —A sensation
was caused here last night by the escape
from state's prifon of two convicts,
Henry Jackson and Thomas Thomas,
firebugs, sentenced in February, 1884, to
30 years. They sandbagged "the door
keeper, Charles Parker, and bound and
gagged him, robbing him of $800 and
clothes belonging to the deputy keepers,
and made good their escape.
A Peculiar Medicine.
Apply to a cut, bruise or burn, Cham
berlain's Pain Balm, and it will produce
a soothing and pleasant effect, but sat
urate a piece of flannel with it, and
bind it on to a sprained ankle, a sore
throat, or a bad case of rheumatism or
neuralgia and it will almost blister, but
will promptly relieve the pain and sore
ness and effect a permanent cure, in less
time than any other remedy. Lame
back is one of the diseases for which it
is peculiarly adapted, and when used as
directed, always elicits the generous
praise of those who use it.

New York, May 29.—The stock ex

James R. Keene was hurt by the break

Assemblyman Trier Returns.
Tbenton, N. J., May 29.—Assembly
man Trier, who suddenly disappeared
several days agij from Trenton with the
legislative copy of the Newark elevated
railroad bill, has returned to his home.
He is out with a statement claiming, in
substance, that it was a lobby that se
cured the passage of the bill, and not a
legislature of the people, and justifies his
action as a move made in the interest of
the public.
