Mr. rowderly Speaks at Cooper Union. He Goes for Gompers and the Federa tion of Labor. Portions of Illinois Swept by a Tornado. Serious Railway Disasters—Other Eastern News. Associated Press Dispatches.] New York, June 20.—Powderly, in his letter to Compters, today, agreeing to meet the latter in Cooper Union tonight, stated that (iompers was in error in his letter of yesterday in saying: "The Knights have been prepared for this meeting for several weeks." He (Powderly) had no intention until Mon day evening of taking up the subject of the charges against the knights, emanat ing from the headquarters of the federa tion. He said he would talk on other matters, but in deference to Gompers's wishes will first discuss the subject at issue, allow Gompers the same time to reply, and then take up other matters. He denied emphatically that his invita tion to Gompers was in the nature of a challenge. Gompers issued a written reply to the effect that he believed Powderly never expected his "challenge" to " be ac cepted, or if accepted the idea was to entrap him ((iompers) into a packed meeting. He accuses Powderly of being a pettifogger and double-dealer. Pie added that he was ready at the meeting or anywhere else to repeat and prove all he said about the knights. Gompers was not present at the meet ing of Knights of Labor tonight. Cooper Union was crowded, and many people who were unable to gain admittance at tended an overflow meeting outside the hall. In the hall, after reading Gompers's letter, Mr. Powderly invited Mr. War ner to take the platform. Warner said as this was a regular meeting of the ex ecutive board for a specific purpose, it would not be proper to adopt Gompers's suggestion to give him half the time of the meeting for a purpose not contem plated in the call. At this point about 200 men rose as if by prearrangenient and left, the hall. Powderly thereupon said: "All who de sire to leave will please do so now, as there are hundreds outside who cannot get in." This was received with great cheers. Powderly then spoke on the insinua tions made against the knights, and read documents showing that they were the first to suggest the eight-hour principle. In the future they would continue the eight-hour movement to help those who are willing to help themselves. He went into an anlysis of the state ment of the membership of the federa tion, and stated that its large apparent membership was made up by claiming the Knights of Labor as members of the i ederation. The lirst trouble between •the organizations occurred when the knights succeeded in having the wages of the cigar-makers increased. The man who headed the shoe-makers'union was little better than a lunatic and the knights had to expel him. This man was now ready to oppose the best inter ests of labor. All workingmen should stand together, and he (Powderly) was ready to resign in live or less minutes in favor of ■Gompers if the workingmen of the country would unite under him. The Knights of Labor had borne insult and misrepresentation in silence long enough. Hereafter they will strike back when attacked. EXPRESS TRAIN WRECKED. A Number of Prominent People Killed and Injured. Baltimore, June 20. —The New York express was wrecked this morning at Childs station, on the Baltimore and Ohio.

Chicago*! Population. Chicago, June 20.—The Journal from an admission dropped by the supervisor of census, says the population of Chicago is a million and a quarter. LAKE FRONT PARK. A TREMENDOUS SENSATION IN CONNECTION THEREWITH. Its Disputed Riparian Rights—An Im mense Steal Said to Be Going on—The World's Fair Finally Located There. Chicago, June 20.—A sensational charge is attributed to Warrant Leland, proprietor of the Leland hotel, in an in terview published in an evening paper. The ownership of Lake Front park, one thousand feet wide and nearly a mile long, between Michigan avenue and the lake shore, has long been in dispute. The riparian right is the bone of conten tion, and claim is laid to it by the state of Illinois, the city of Chicago and tbe Illi nois Central Railroad Company. Leland, as owner of property abutting on this park, has been fighting all encroach ments thereon, and has declared his in tention to fight the location of the world's fair upon it, negotiations to which end have been in progress between the directors and the Illinois Central rail way. In an interview today Leland is quoted as saying that a year ago a bribe of $1,01X1,000 was offered him to cease his warfare in behalf of the preservation of Lake Front park. "And yet," headded, "thereare those who believe I am fighting a phantom, and who ridicule the idea of there being a steal on foot. Why, there has been a steal on foot besides which the opera tions of the Tweed ring pale into insig nificance. If the steal was of such a gigantic proportion a year ago before the proposition to extend the park 1,000 feet more into the lake was made, of what size do you think it now? It is over two hundred million dollars. Who is back of the steal ? Is it the Illinois Central railway or the city council? I don't know. Perhaps it is one; perhaps the other: perhaps both. A stretch of the imagination may en able one to believe it is neither, but as such a steal could not be accomplished without the consent of the city council, and as the Illinois Central railroad is commercially more greatly interested in the disposition of the property than anyone else, the belief that neither is interested can be of but short life." Leland is quoted in detail as to his efforts to maintain the lake front free from buildings, including the present exposition building, and the opposition he has met from the successive city gov ernments for nine years past, intimating that there were monetary influences back of their opposition. Leland re fused to give the name of the man who came to him. He said it was a well-known citizen, who came as the representative of other parties and said: "Leland, if you will simply bother yourself no more about the Lake Front park, but remain passive to what is done, 1 can let you in on a deal so you will get a million dol lars." The matter bids fair to create a tre mendous sensation. WORLD'S FAIR SITE. Lake Front Park Finally Decided Upon as the Location. Chicago, June 211.—The directors of the world's fair formally declared their preference for the hike front site this afternoon, there being only one dissent ing vote. A resolution was then adopted instructing the committee on grounds to enter into negotiations with the Chicago and Illinois Central railroad and all other interested parties, to secure an area of the lake front of not less than 250 acres, to be bounded on the north by Monroe street.

He Advises the Senate to Kill the Measure. Surely This is the Most Unkindeat Cut of All. Russia Willing to Back Uncle Sam In His Bering Sea Claims—A Presi dential Veto. Associated Press Dispatches 1 New Yokk, June 20.—The Herald Washington correspondent asserts that Secretary Blame, in an informal confer ence with the senate appropriations committee, sharply voiced the sentiment of the administration in opposition to the McKinley tariff bill. He said in substance : "The bill is an outrage and ought to be killed by the senate."

Russia Prepared to Hack Its Representa tions About the Bering Sea. Chicago, June 20.—The Times'» Wash ington correspondent says: Information comes from a perfectly reliable source that the president and secretary of state have received positive assurances from the government of Russia that the latter stands prepared to make good the repre sentations given at the time of the Alaskan purchase, of the Bering sea be ing a mare claustim, or closed sea, and that if the United States desired the co operation of Russia in enforcing this doctrine she can have it. It has been impossible to learn what views or pur poses are held by Mr. Blame in the mat ter. ANOTHER VETO. The President Sits Down on the Maricopa County Railway Subsidy. Washington, June 20.—President Har rison today returned to the house, with out approval, the bill to authorize the board of supervisors of Maricopa county, Arizona, to issue county bonds at the rate of $4,000 per mile in aid-of the con struction of a certain railroad. He says : The bill seems to have passed the house under a misapprehension of its true scope and effect. In the report of the committee on territories it is said that by the terms of the bill the county re ceives bonds in payment of the money proposed to be advanced. In fact the bill did not provide for a loan to be se cured by bonds, but for a subscription of stock. How far this mistake may have effected the passage of the bill, of course cannot be known. The bill does not submit the question of granting aid to a vote of the people of the county or confer direct authority upon the supervisors to issue bonds. It is said, however, in April, 1881) an elec tion was held to obtain the views of the people upon this question. It does not appear from any paper submitted to me who were the managers of this so-called election ; what notice, if any, was given ; what qualifications on the part of the voters were insisted upon, if any, or in what form the question was presented. There was no law providing for such election. It being wholly voluntary, the election was of course under the manage ment of those who favored the subsidy and was conducted without any legal re straints as to voting or certification. I have asked for a statement of the vote by precincts, and been given what pur ports to be a vote at twelve precincts. The total affirmative vote given was 1,795 and negative, 134, but of the affirmative vote, 1,543 were at Phoenix and 188 at a town very near Phoenix. If there were no other objections to the bill I should deem this alone sufficient, that no provision is made for submitting to a vote of the people at an election after due notice and under the sanction of the law, the question whether this subscription shall be made. But again the bill proposes to suspend for this case the provisions of the act of July 30, 1880, forbidding municipal cor porations to subscribe to stock or loan credit to other corporations ; also forbid ding a corporation to create a debt in ■ excess of four per cent, of the taxable property at the last assessment. This law was intended to give the people of the teriitories that protection against excessive municipal debts which was j secured to the people of most of the states by constitutional limitation. The wisdom of this legislation is not con tested by the friends of the bill, but they claim that the circumstances are so peculiar as to justify this exceptiuii. Maricopa county is one of great ex tent, and this great area is to be taxed to construct a road which can in the nature of things be of advantage to but a fraction of it. There is no unity of interest or equality of advantage. It may very well be said that that section of these lands along the line of the road, especially town lots in Phoenix, would have an added value, much greater than the increased burden imposed upon them, but it is equally clear that the property in the county will receive no appreciable benefits. The existing bonded indebtedness of Maricopa county is $272,000; the tax assessment about $5,000,000, and the population is esti mated at about 12,000. It will be seen that a bonded debt, to say nothing of the floating debt, which is said to be small, is already largely in excess of the legal limit, and it is proposed to in •>se it by a subscription that will cer- j involve $200,000, and probably *he bill becomes a law, the °ss will very closely of the assessed ' ''he county, "ountv . .. ' of thn, . act -Ii i. of Arizon. act of pongresb Yavapa'- count} v... scribe $7,000 per mile to this line of road. The total length of the road in the county was 147 miles, and seventy lour to Prescott had been constructed. The secretary of the territory states the debt of Yavapai county at $763,000, and the assessment, between $0,000,000 and $7,000,000. There are seventy-five miles of road yet to be built from the present terminus, Pres cott, to the south line of the county, for which Yavapai county must make a further issue of bonds of $292,000, making a county debt of $855,000, or about 13 per cent, upon the taxable as sessment! taking that at $0,500,000, and a per capita county debt of nearly $85, taking the population at about 10,000, as stated in the report of the senate com mittee. Surely, no one will insist that the true and permanent prosperity of these communities will be promoted by loading their energies and their indus tries with this great debt. I feel the force of the suggestion that the freight charges now imposed upon farm and orchard products of Maricopa county by the railroad now in operation are oppressive. But this bill does not afford much relief, even in that direction. There would be but one competing point, viz: Phoenix. At all other points on the proposed road the people would be subject to the exacting of just such rates as are demanded by the other line. If tins bill contained some effective pro vision to secure reasonable freight rates to those people who are to be taxed to build the road, it would go far to secure my favorable consideration. I have carefully examined the reports of the committees, and every argument that has been submitted to me by the friends of the bill, but I cannot bring myself to believe that the peiinanent welfare of the communities affected by it, will be promoted by its passage.

He also testified that he considered the funds very secure in the safe in tine office located in his own house, and very insecure in the same safe in an office located outside of his own house; Major A. S. Towar corroborated Wham's testimony, and added that Miltimore knew nothing of his drawing commutation of quarters, as he drew from the pay department.
