Kashah City, Mo., April 14.?The
first Western States Commercial Congress
convened at noon to-day at the
Oj?era House, with delegates present
trotn twenty-four Western and Soathern
states and Territories. The delegations
are composed mainly of business men,
appointed by the Governors of the var*
ioua Suites, and are represantative of the
Western and S-iuthern people. The
convention was called for ten o'clock,
bat it was nearly noon when the chairman
of the Executive Committee rapped
for order. When the name of John C.
Wicklifle,of New Orleans, was called,
his name waa rrcogaizsd as tbat of one
of the leaders of the citizens of New Or*
leans wbo executed the eleven Italians
charged with Chief Hennessey's death.
When he stepped to tbo stage hie appearance
was greeted with applauso. Without
acknowledging is he quickly took
his seat. The convention was called to
order by State Senator Kelly, of Kansas.
Hy motion of Governor Francis, of Missouri,
SnuHfor Keliy was ehosen tornnnrarv
iii a of acceptance Senator
Kelly exfnSTO&d ono object of the Conj?rcb?
to ho tho coneideration of various
questions of peculiar interest to the
West and South. He laid all the blainn
MfMCiiltnml depression upon a too
email circulating medium. As a relief
lie ?oggested the recoinage of silver, and
the raising of silver money to the standard
of gold.
ifon. John W. Springer, of Illinois,
wag elected Temporary Secretary. Gov.
Francif, of Missouri, then spoke. He
said the Coogross marked a new era in
4agricultural, commercial and financial
history. In the early history of the;
country such dissension and dissatisfaction
as now exists resulted in revolution
Tim people of the West were now cryiug
for relief but the manner of relief
was sought, not by arms, but by this deliberative
congress. It was necessary
now for the West to stand together;
there were many things that the West
desired, in the advocacy of which ahe
should be unanimous, earnest and contined.
The West wanted free trade
with Mexico and Canada and South
America, and with all the countries of
the world. Tho West, wanted the MisHispippi
connected with the Great Lakes
It wonted a fuller volume of currency.
These were things which would relieve
the distressing condition of atiairs and
these were tilings that tho West must
act together upon.
Adjournment was then taken until 2
o'clock this afternoon. Upon reassembling
letters of regret were read from
those who hud been given special invitations
to attend the Congress. Among
the letters waa one from President Harrison.
Tho President after acknowledging
the receipt of an invitation to bo present,
and expressing his regret at being unable
to do so on account of his trip, wrote as
"A public difceuesion of the conditions
affecting agricultural and business prosperity
cannot but ba helpful, if it is conducted
on broad lines and is hospitable to
differences of opinion. The extraordinary
development of production of agriculture,
which has taken place in recent
periods in this country, by reason of the
rapid enlargement of the area of tillage
under the favoring land laws of the
United States, very naturally has called
attention to the value and indeed the

is iit'cefsurily the best market for the
producer, hs it measurably emancipates
him, in proportion to its nearness, from
the cxaciioDB of transportation com*
"If the farmer could deliver his sur*
plus produce to the consumer out of hiB
(arm wagon, his independence and profits
would be larger and surer. It seems
to he quite possible to attain a largely
inm-used market for our staple farm products
without impairing home markets,
by opening the manufacturing tradea to
a competition in which foreign produeers,
paying a lowing scale of wages,
would have tho advantage. A policy
that would reduce the number of our
peonle encaged in mechanical pursuit?,
or diniiniHh their ability to purchaue
food products, by reducing wages, can*
not In helpful to thoBo now engaged in
'The farmers ineint that tho prices of
farm products have been too:iow for the
point 01 fair living and fair profits. I
think m too, but I venture to remind
them that the point they mako involves
t.'ie concession that things may be too
cheap. A coat m*v be too cheap as well
at* corn. The farmer who claims a good
Jiving and profit for his work, should
concede the same to every other pian
and woman who toils.
"Ilook with great confluence to the
completion of further reciprocal trade
arrangements, especially with the Central
and South American states, as fur*
niihing new and large markets *for
meats, breadstuff, and an Important
iine of manufactured products.
"One or two things I will say, and
tirat, i believe that evory person who
tttnnuHtfti.Mv thft rniPHlinn will
agree with ino upon a proposition which
is *t tho base of all my consideration of {
the currency question; namely, that any,
dollar, paper or coin, that is issued by
the United States must be made and
kept in ita commercial uses as good as
any other dollar. Bo long aa any paper
money issued or authorised by the
United Stales no vera mentis accepted in
commercial use as the equivalent of the
>?r8t coineu dollar that we issue, and so
long as every coined dollar, whether of
silver or gold, ia jistmred of an equal
value in commercial use. there need be
no foar as to an excess of money. The
more of such money tho better.
"But on the other hand, when any
issue of paper or coined dollar iu buying
and selling is rated at a less value than
other paper or coined dollars, we have
passed the limit ef safe experiment in
Unanco. If wo bavo dollars of -different
values only the j>ooreet will circulate.
The farmer and the laborer who are not
in hourly touch with tho ticker, or the
telegraph, will require, above all other
classea of our community, A dollar full
of value. Fluctuations and depreclalions
ar?? always at Uie first cost qI these
classes of our community. The bankex
and the speculator anticipate discount,
and often profit by such tluctuationo.
"It ia very easy under the impuUo ol
vxdtement, or the stress of mone}
stringency, to fall into the slough of 1
depreciated or irredeemable currency
It is very painlul and slow business U
get out when once in. I have alwayi
r believed, ami do now more than ever
believe, In bi-meUlliam,' and favor the
fullest use oi silver in connection with
oar currency that ia compatible with the
maintenance of the parity of the gold
I and ailver dollar in tbeir commercial
uses. Nothing, in my judgment, would
so mncb retard the reetoratlon of the
free nae of allver bv tbe commercial
natlona of the world aa legislation
1 adopted by as that would resultin placing
thia country upon a basis of ailver
mone-metallism. The legislation adopted
by the flrat session of the Fifty-Aral Congress,
I waa assured by leading advocates
of Free Coinage representatives of Silver
States, would promptly and permanently
bring ailver to 12V per ounce and
keep it there. That anticipation has not
been realized. Our larger use of silver
has apparently, and for reasons not yet
agreed upon, diminlahed the demand
for silver in China and l'era.
"In view of the fact that it is impossible
in this letter to elaborate, and that
propositions ontv can b > stated, I am
aware tbat what I have said may be assailed
in points where it is easily defensible,
but where I have not attempted
to present the argumjnts. I have not
before, excepting in an official way, exJtressed
myself on these subjects; bnt i
eeling the interest, dignity and importance
of tho assemblage in whose be- <
half you apeak, I have ventured, with- i
out bigotry of opinion, without any
assumption of infallibility, bntmerely as
an American citizen having a moat
earneBt desire that every individual and
every public act of my life ahall conduce
to the glory of our country and tbe proaperityof
all our people, to rnbinit these
views for your consideration."
A letter was also read from lien. J. M. 1
Rusk, Secretary of Agriculture. lie suggests
that prominence be given to the
discussion of those questions affecting !
the pgricultural interests oi the country, 1
for the reason that a prosperous agricultural
condition will insure prosperity in 1
all other branches of industry. He suggests
the subjects of "Transportution,"
"Markets" and "Federal and
State Statistics" as the pivotal questions
affecting the farmer.
"The large surplus of agricultural pro*
ducts of tho West must be sold in distant
markets, and the manufactured products
must he brought from distant
sources, making the question of trans*
portation especially important to the
Western farmer. Reliable sta isticsof tho
supply and demand, uot only of our
own, but all foreign countries, are highly
Senator Peffer, of Kansas, wrota that
the objects of the Congress met bis
hearty approval, and expressed the hope
that it would result in bringing the
people of tho West and the South into
closer social and commercial relations.
Oharles Francis Adams, of Boston,
wrote that it would not be profitable for
him to prepare an address such as he
had been invited to present to the ConJ
trees. His views, he said, were so radcal
as well as positive, that they would
not prove acceptable to such a body as
the Congress proposed would necessarily
be. While he recognised the
hardships of the present situation in tho
West, be did not believe thacauy action,
except individual action, was necessary J
for a remed v. 1
lUollna ainntlo orith fit A oiihlunt nro.
Sared for discuBaion by the UongreBs, fl
fr. Adams~wrote that he did not be- t
Iieve there was any general business fl
and agricultural depression exeopt that
due to natural and temporal causes; c
that he did not believe any legislation z
is required affecting commerce, tranapor- t
tation and finance; that he thought im- t
proved transportation by land aud water 5
would provide for itself under the laws ;
of supply and demand if the Gov- J
ernment did not continually meddiu (
with it', that he thought western products
would find markets soon enough if fl
the Government would leave the matter ?
severely alone. ?
H. K. Thurber, of ffow York, in a let- t
ter of regret, presented hia views on the
causes ana effects of business coinbina- ><
tions and trusts. Their cause, he wrote,
was sharp competition. Their effects
wero beneficial to the producer, and the f
consumer and he had come to the L
conclusion that it was not only in ac- r>
cordance with the spirit of the times J
that the aggregation of capital, ekill and i,
experience in almost every branch of g
business should go forward, but also that .
it Is for the best interests of the maoses. 0
After perfecting an organization,choos- j
ing Governor Francis, of Missouri, as <j
President and Congressman Springer as t
Permanent Secretary, and alao appoint- fi
ing committees, the Congress adjourned t
until to-morrow morning at 10:U0. (]

fcottbali, Pa., April 14.?The great I
coke atrike is believed to be grad- I
nally nearing its close. Breaks from the '
ranks o( the strikers were reported from e
all partg of the region to-day. At the t
Lelsingring plant overone hundred men '
reported for work, and at the Fainter ^
workseighty. The Ooalbrook works are r
running fall, and forcea are at work at 1
the other plants. Great suffering ia reported
among the strikers. At the J
headquarters it ia said that a dot an fam- [,
ilies are starving and the strikers gener* k
ally are calling for aid. The feeling ''
against the leaders is becoming bitter *

there will be a stampede among the

The dreaded evictions that have been f(
threatened here for a long time, bsgan r,
to day in a moat determined way. The ei
Ager and McEnery families, a^Morgan's Bl
were thrown out of their houses and tl
their poor furniture piled in tifo road, a;
while a great crowd of strikers silently n
watched the proceedings. The two men p
who were evicted hare been conspicu- tl
ous, taking an active part in ail labor n
demonstrations. .Evictions were also p
carried out at Summit and Adelaide,
and the scents on the road to-day are
likely to be repeated a hundred-fold as
the managers of the jfreat Frick firm
say strikers cannot live in thecompany's
houses. Eviction notices have been '
fairly showered at the Painter'and
other works. This is a powerful weapon
in the hands of the operators and it 8
looks as if they are now playing, their J'
last card in a winning game against the j?
mt-n. J
An infuriated crowd of foreign strik- 11
ers this afternoon attacked the houses of 0
several men who had returned to work
at the Trotter plant. Windows and
doors were smashed, and the inmates 61
were obliged to appeal to the Deputy v
Sheriffs for protection. A woman was ?
badly injured, but the crowd withdrew .i
before doing other damage. Over thirty
warrants have been issued, and the riot- :
ers are being arrested to-night. The
strikers say women led tbe iuub.
The bankers here say a steady run has /
been going on eyer since the strike. The j

Dr. John R. Pipes and Tayle
Foreman are Arrested
A Sensational Cateor wblnlt Dr. ripe

Statement be niAfac* about
It?llparinE To-morrow.
Yesterday afternoon William Brpc
Btrop, engineer at the County Infirniarr
appeared before Justice of the Peac
George Arkle and swore ont a warrant
charging Mr. Taylor Foreman and Dr
John R. Pipea with having diainterrei
for the purpose of removing unlawfully
the body of Henry Watabeckerfrom tbi
cemetery on the Poor Farm, nsed for tbi
burial of paupers and those who die ii
the Infirmary. The time of the alleget
srime is stated in the warrant as Jan
nary 17,1891.
Dr. PipeB and Mr. Foreman were ar
rested forthwith and taken before till
justice, who set the preliminary hearing
for to-morrow evening at Beven o'clock.
Both men wero placed nnder $1,(XX
t)ond, and were released at once on-furnishing
Inquiry was made at the Infirmary,
ind it was learned that Watsbecker died
>f paralysis about the time named in
he warrant. A few days ago the grave
>f Watthecker was opened for the pur*
>ose of removing the remains to the G.
i, li. plat in the Stone Church cameery.
The grave was fouud to be empty,
lence the issuance of the warrant.
What reason there is for suspecting
klr. Foreman and Dr. Pipes conld not be
earned at the Infirmary, as Branitrop
cas not there and tho Superintendent
mew nothing about it.
At the timo the robbery is alleged to
lave take place Foreman was Superinendent
of the Institution.
The cose excited a good deal of com*
aent about town lost night. There has
iften been talk of the prevalence of
;rave robbery in this vicinity, and while
lotbiug very tangible and nothing that
Fould excite suspicion was even retorted,
the impression somehow got
broad that body-stealing was common
n the cemeteries of Wheeling aud
icinity. So generally was this irnprtBion
circulated that oases are reported
there beraved families have employed
uards to watch the graves of tho dead
intil the bodies had reafrnl a stage of deay
at which it was not supposed that
rave robbing would bethought of.
Many stories have been told of graves
eepoifed of the bodies, but none of
beeo wore substantiated upon inquiry,
'ho case of tho reported robbery of the
rave of Dr. Shucbardt, ovor in Bel*
lont county, may be remembered by
bo public. That story, which seemed
a come very direct, was thoroughly inestigated
by the Intklmgenckr, and
}und to be untrue. Tho attempt
3 despoil the tomb of the late
Jishop Whelan, under the Wnelan
lemorail Gbapel, in Mt. Calvary ceinetry,
also made so profound an impresinn
ut tho titnn that it hna not. hnnn {nr.
ott.-n. These two were the only cases
icntioned in the public prints in many
ears, and in neither case was tbere a
obbery ot a grave.
In the cose of Wntsbecker, thero seems
3 be no room for doubt that the crave
no robbed of its contents, but what
eason there is to accuse Mr. Foreman
nd Dr. Pipes must appear upon the
Late last night an Intslliobncbh roorter
found Dr. Pipes, and asked him
Imt be bad to say shout the case. Dr.
'ipes at fjret was inclined to be reticent,
staging to say anything except that be
res innocent of the charge and did not
now anything about the cass. Persistnt
queationinft however, induced him
3 talk a little more freely, and he seemed
j talk with entire frankness.
lie said that the first intimation he
ad of the case was when he was arrested
y Constable Lauchlin last evening
then on the way to eee a patient, gravely
I with pneumonia. He was told that
Irandstrop, the complainant, bad said
list he bad been in consultation with
Ir. Foreman half a doien times. The
ict was that be bad driven out to Kim

isited the Infirmary, when Mr.
oreman was superintendent. He
jet bim then, the only time be had
verssenhimin his life to know bim,
xcept once when be met him on the
Lreet. He understood that Brandstrop
irther said that be and another person
rove to the Infirmary one night in a
i?o-horse wagon, went to the graveyard
nd stole the body. He did not, as a
act, he said, know where the graveyard

London, April 11.?The disturbance
caused by tbe riotous conduct yesterday,
of theBtriking weavers at Bradford,Yorkshire,
still continues. A lame concourse
of people gathered this morning about
tbe contested spaco, the Town Hall
square, where tbe municipal authorities
forbade the strikers yesterday from
holding; a meeting, >nd thus caused the
serious conflict with police, which has
already been reported. There is great
excitement in tbetown. Tbepolicebave
as yet refrained from interference with
the strikers, but the troops are kept confined
to tbeir barracks and are uuder
arms, ready for instant action In the
event of a renownl of the rioting. A
number of arreetiof strikers who are
charged with intimidating the weavers
who are not out on strike, has been
t1ik riotsbs' latest break.
The first conflict between tho strikers
and the police was short and sharp.
The riotera again gathered in Sunbride
street at ten o'clock to-night. Strong
bodieB of the strikers were posted in the
sido streets and behind all tho boardings
in the vicinity, and each crowd was well
supplied with building materials to be
used as missiles when the authorities
attempted to disperse the gathering.
The police made several charges on the
m%n, but all tbeir efforts to dislodge
them from their fortified positions proved
futile. Eventually the police made a
tkok movement on the rioters and succeeded
in making them boat a retreat,
but not without a fierce struggle, during
which all the windows of tbe building)
on Sunbrlde street were smashed by the
nhncrar of miiuiflnii- with which t.lm utrilr.
era sought to repulse the police.
A late dispatch from Bradford states
that rioting was resumed there this
evening by a moll numbering at least
20,000 person^. The street lamps were
extinguished by the riotore, anil the military,
police and special constables hid to
be called out. Repealed charges were
mado before the mob dispersed, and
many persona were injured.
Epidemic of |nftu?na* la England.
London, April 14.?The reappearance

prevailing in an epidemic form in
Sheffield, the disease ia prevalent
throughout Yorkshire and has reappeared
suddenly at Hull, where the
death rate has doubled during the last
fortnight. There have bsen many deaths
in DrilBeld district from the disease. At

[ CiiARLKaTON, 8. C., April 11.?An
unique sail interesting phase of the
State'a rights .question baa just been pri
aenteil In a correspondence which hu
taken between Governor Tillman, of this
State, and Secretary of tho Interior Noblr.
The asbject of tho corrcapondenca la -the
division of the State's ahare of the
Federal appropriation for niecbanicil
and agricultural colleger.
At the seaaion of the Stats Legislature
which adjourned laat December, an act
waa paaaed providing that the quota to
be received by South Carolina ahould Is
divided into two equal parUi, one half to
be given to the Clemson Agriculturi 1
College for whites, at Pendleton, aLd
tbe other to the Claflin College for colored
youth, at Orangeburg. A tow day a
h(go Governor Tillman addressed a Utter
to Secretary Noble, applying (jr South
Carolina's quota of the fund appropriated
under the Act of Congress approved
August 30, 1890. In reply Becretaiy
Noble objected to tho method of division
decided upon by the State Legislature,
and informed the Governor thatth's
State's quota was at his disposal, to ? n
divided between the two colleges on tho
basis of the proportion of tue bchoil
population. This proportion, under tho
census of 1SU0, was SO 7 white and 03 8
colored, and tho 8eorotary announced
that it was only by pledging a division
on this basis that South Carolina could,
get her money.
Governor Tillman promptly raised tbe
issue that the money was duo Soutn
Carolina and that tbe Secretary of the
| Interior had nothiug whatever to do
I with tbe division of tbe fund. Secretary
Noble differed with him and the Governor
a day or two ago issuod hie ultimatum
in a letter to acting Secretary Chandler
in which he says: "South Carolina
has dealt liberally with her colored college
in tbe past and I am sorry to see it
crippled by a refusal on your part to accept
the apportionment proposed by the
State. As Governor I have no authority
to do more, and if I had I would refuse
to accept tbe money under the
terms you offur."
I Under tbe act of Congress tho money
will remain in the hands of the Secretary
of the Interior nntil Congress meets
when the State can apply to that body.
Tbe 8tate authorities announce their
determination to carry tho matter to tho
Supreme Court if necessary. The South
Carolina Legislature does not meet
again until next November, and Governor
Tillman can take no further steps
towards accepting tbe quota until in{structed
by the Assembly.
A Klft&lAN WAR billP
Stopped by Tnrkuy nt tU? f>ar>fnnal!o?,
Hat Finally Allow*4 to Pam.
Constantinople, April 13.?A Russian
warship belonging to tho volunteer
fleet fitted up by popular subscription,
has boen stopped by the Turkish an*
| thorities at the Dardanelles. The Rue|
sian vessel was proceeding through that
passage on her way to Vladistock, Asia,
near tbe northern limit of Corea, on the
sea of Japan. 8htf was loaded with railroad
material and had as passengers a
large number of "military workmen,"
according to the torm used by tho Russians
who are detailed to construct the
trans-Sibarian railroad, which it is believed
will make the harbor and araanal
of Vladistock one of the moat valuable
porta in Russian territory.
The officer in command of the Russian
ship upon being brought to beneath
the Runs of the forts of the Dardanelles,
immediately appealed to the Russian
ambassador at Constantinople, M. Da
NelldoO, who, in turn entered the
strongest protests possible with the
Turkish oflicials of this city. M. Da
Nelidofl claim'ed in warm terms that tho
action at the Dardanelles was in direct
and flagrant violation of the commercial
treaties existing between Russia and
Turkey. After a considerable interchange
of views on the subject tho Forte
finally came to tho conclusion that it
would be unadvisablo to detain the war
ship any farther and ahe was allowed to
pats tho Dardanelles. The action in
stopping the abip waa taken on tba
ground of the treaty of 1841, concluded
in that year by tho five great powers and
Turkey, by which it was decided that no
sblp of war belonging to any nation
save Turkey should pus the Dardanelles
without thu express permission of
Turkey: all merchant ships being also
required to show their papers to thu
Ottoman authorities.

Bbri.in, April h.?Herr JBebel, the
Socialist leader in tho Reichstag, denies
that tba German Socialists intend to
take part in an International strike, lie
says: "Whero would the money come
from? If we wore sore of the co-operation
of the worklngiosn of all countries
we should not want to Btriko at all. We
could get whatever wo wanted. An
International strike would do more
harm than good. Even a general national
strike Is almost impossible."
Since tbe Belgian delegates h"?ve returned
to Belgium after attending the
International Miners' Oor.gme in l'sris,
and since they have commenced tu face
the real problems of a wholesale strike
tbey have become inclined to abandon
the line. Whatever the future aitra
may ha tho Germaa Socialists' immediate
demands are moderate. They Mill
not yet mako a demand for an eighthour
law if they are able to get a concession
of ten hoars a day.
