Labor Union Celebration in
New York City. Tin* Dark and Bloody (ironnd of Kentucky Feuds. i;ichI Lahor Demonstration. Nku Yokk, July 5.—A meeting, at tended by al>out 20,000 persons, was held this afternoon in Union Square under the auspices of the Central Labor Union. The gathering: was of workingmen, and the purpose was to appeal to the workingmen of Great Britain and Ireland to support by their votes the candidates for memlrers of Parliament who are pledged to the cause of home rule. Among rhe organizations that attended in Inxlies were 1,000 mem bers of the A1 e and Porter Brewers Asso ciation, Ö00 memlters of the shoemakers Protective Association, 3,000 members of Progressive Assembly, No. 2, K. of L., 1,000 of the United Pressmen's Union. There was speaking from four stands, from one of which the speaking was in German. General Master Workman Powderly was to have delivered an address but was forced to send a telegram of regret at his inability to do so. An address to the "workingmen of Great Britain and Ireland" was adopted. It expressed intense interest in the home rule movement for Ireland; referred to the sympathy of the British working classes with the United States in its recent strug gle of the happily restored good feeling between the North and South ; the result of home rule for States, and calling on the voters ot Great Britain to grant to Ireland the same antonomy as is certainly calcu lated to engender a spirit ot love for and patriotic pride in the mother country and build up a community teeling with the people of the United States, thereby making a union of the English speaking nations, with an untold power for good in its inlluence in the world. < )ne stand was set apart for lady specta tors. At this point Lillie Devereux Blake had charge. She thought it time that women took part in national affairs and followed out that suggestion with a brief address. Mrs. Delia S. Parnell followed Mrs. Blake. The Irish leader's mother was greeted w ith cheers. She said her want ot health prevented her speaking at length. Her feelings, she said, were strong as she stood before such a multitude. It recalled to her, her ancestors, who fought for Erin's liberty and for humanity against pernicious landlords, w r ho ruled over Ireland. In giving sympathy to Ireland Mrs. Parnell urged that her hearers should not neglect to send them w hat is more needful and practical—money. Madame Delescleuso and Margaret Moore also spoke briefly. Kentuck} Tragedy. Louisville, July 5.—A special to the l.'ourier-Journal says: Another bloody chapter in the Bowan county factional war was added to-day. Sheriff Rainy, with a posse, attempted to arrest the noto rious Craig Tolliver, Cook Humphres and Howard Logan, the principals in the trouble. Tolliver submitted quietly, but Logan and his son William and Hum phreys opened lire upon the sheriff's posse, who returned the tire. Sheriff Rainy was ^hot through the body and mortally wounded, while his son Henry and a depu ty were also slightly wounded. Logan's son was also shot, but not fatally. Information received reports that Logan and Humphreys are raising a mob of fol- lowers to kill the whole of the sheriff's ]K>sse. The Governor has been telegraphed to send troops to Rowan county at once. | .Ml is fear and excitement. —--------- Stubbing Affray. St. Louis, July (».— G. M. Haywood, an ex-striker and Knight of Labor, but now connected with the Furlong Detective Agency, in the capacity of the former, be came involved in a row on the steamer Mary M. Michael, late last night, and was cut seven times and kicked until uncon scious. It looks very much as if the at tack on Haywood was premeditated, and under cover of a slight disturbance it was decided to slaughter him. The trouble oc curred on the barge when the boat was opposite the West House. The excursion was under the auspices of the telegraphers of the city, and on board was a gang who made themselves particularly offensive to all. They began to quarrel among them selves and it is believed that Haywood interfered. He was instantly attacked by eight men, one of whom used a knife while the others seized his revolver and beat him with it. When the steamer landed at the foot of Locust street he pointed out a man named Jno Heck as the party who did the stabbing. Robert O'Brien and Tony Nie derweis, Jr., were arrested as accessories. They say that they only defended them selves as' Haywood drew his revolver and attempted to shoot them. Escape of a murderer. Portland, Ore., July 5.An Albany, Ore., special says: W.W.. Saunders,under indict ment for killing Chas. Campbell last No vember,'was convicted last night of murder in the first degree. The judge announced that he would sentence the prisoner Wed nesday This morning the discovery was made that he had effected his escape from the county jail. During his continement when he was being given the liberty ot the corridor, he had sawed off the rivets ot the locks of the cell and replaced them with dark wooden ones, which were such close imitations that the jailor did not suspect the substitution. It was therefore little trouble, having once gained the cor ridor, to make his escape. One thousand dollars reward has been offered for his re covery. There is much excitement. The sheriff and posse are in pursuit. Disastrous Fire. Chicago, July 5.—At 4 o'clock this morning a fire occurred in the five story store building Nos. 152 and 154, South Clark street, occupied on the first lloor as restaurant, and on the upper floors as a lodging house, known as the Benton hotel. I'he two upper floors have been occupied as a store room, and only recently been fitted up with pine bunks. At the time the fire was discovered there were thirty live inmates in the lodging rooms, five of whom had a very narrow escape from the burning building through the root of the building, while a number of others succeeded in making their way out ot the building by the regular stairways. It is feared that ten or twelve persons have lost their lives. Only two persons are known to have perished, and they were burned beyond recognition. They were lound on the upper lloor, having evidently died from suffocation shortly after leaving their bunks. The loss on the building and con tents will not exceed $20,000, fully covered by insurance. Four firemen were serious ly injured by falling glass. The cause of the fire is unknown. Approved by the President. Washington, July 1.—The President has approved the joint resolution extend ing the appropriations for fifteen days. House Report on the Pan Electric Case. Washington, June 30.—Boyle,of Penn sylvaia, from the Pan Electric committee, submitted a report signed by four mem bers of the committee upon the subject of its investigation. It is accompanied by a resolution that a fair and exhaustive in vestigation has failed to adduce any evi dence which tends to show that Attorney Genefai Garland, Solicitor General Goode, Secretary Lamar, Indian Commissioner Atkins, Railroad Commissione Johnstone or Senator Hairrs, they being the officers named in the Pan Electric publications of the newspapers which gave rise to this in vestigation, did any act, official or other wise connected with the matter investigat ed, which was dishonest, dishonorable or censurable. The report and the resolu tion (which is concurred in by Hale) were referred to the House calendar. Ranney, of Massachusetts, also submit ted a report signed by four Republican members of the committee. Hale present ed his individual views. These reports were placed upon the calendar. The following are the principal points made : Stock transferred by Rogers to Garland, Harris and others was an interest in the invention then of no value and only to be made valuable by the joint efforts ol the owners. At that time Garland was not thought of for Attorney General and the others mentioned had no official place or prospect which was likely to benefit the property. The committee failed to find that any legislation was cou'emplated at the time thd company was formed. There is no evidence that Garland ever heard of it. Rogers undoubtedly expected to profit by association with men of known ability and distinction. But, the report asks ; "did these men to whom wrong doinghas never before been imputed intend to become and did they liecome scoundrels at once?" When a man enters Congress he was not expected and it is not the practice for him to renounce worldly business. All that is expected of him is that he shall not use the inlluence of his place for the advancement of bis private interests. The report reviews the history of the conference proceedings and finds nothing in the conduct of Goode de serving censure. The report says the suit to test the legality of the Bell patents was rightfully brought, but the same could not result to the benefit of the l'an Electric Telephone company, as so many inven tions preceded that of Rogers. Discussing the Appropriations. Washington, July 2.—The amend ments increasing the salaries of the As sistant Treasurers at Baltimore and Boston beyond the amounts in the House bill gave rise to a discussion, in the course of which Allison, chairman of the committee of ap propriations, contradicted and repudiated the claim made in the House that that body had saved $800,000 in cutting down the appropriations in this bill. Me showed that $100,000 of the reduction claimed ap plied to the expenses of the two houses, which are always that much less in a short session (for which the bill provides.) than in a long session; that $217,000 of it was , from the reduction in the pension office, specifically ordered in the bill in the last Congress ; that $200,000 of it was in ex penses connected with the internal revenue bureau ; that the reduction of the appro priations for that bureau would be in the interest of the moonshiners and illicit dis tilleries : that $77,000 came from an omis sion to appropriate that sum for the mint at San Francisco, which would have to be takenlout of the permanent appriation under the silver act of 1878, and the rest of the reduction claimed in the House came from cutting down and cealing the salaries of officers here and there as in the cases un der consideration. The amendment increasing the compen sation of the Commissioner of Pensions from $4,000 to $5,000 was rejected—yeas 24, nays 25. Subsequently the vote was rescinded and the amendment agreed to i without division. A like amendment as to the Commissioner of Patents was also agreed to—yeas 24, nays 19. The Senate then took up the river and harlior appropriation bill, and soon alter adjourned. it Acts Approved by the President. Washington, July 1.—The President has approved the act to reduce the îee on domestic money orders for sums not ex- j ceeding $5 ; the act making allowances for clerk hire to \ ostmasters of first and second class postoffices ; military postotfice, agri cultural and army appropriation bills ; act granting leave of absence to employes in government printing office ; acts providing for the completion of the public building at El Paso, Tex., Hannibal, Mo., Savannah, Ga., Peoria Ills., Des Moines, Iowa ; act for the sale of the Kansas City, Fort Scott it Gulf Railroad ; act authorizing the Chey enne & Northern Railroad Company to build a road across the Fort Russel and Fort Laramie reservations ; act providing for additional barracks at the Southern, Northwestern and Western branches of the National Home for disabled volunteer ; soldiers; act for the relief of the officers and crew of the light house tender Lilly. No Money Available. Washington, July 1.—Acting Secretary Fairchild this morning prepared a circular calling the attention of the government 1 employes to the failure ol Congress to pro vide for their compensation after June :*0, and notifying them that their continuance j at work after that date must l>e at their own risk, subject to the luture action ol Congress. The matter was considered at the Cabinet meeting to-day and it was de cided to defer the issuance of the circular until to-morrow, in anticipation of the pas sage by Congress to-day ol a joint reso lution extending the appropriations ol the last fiscal year. Veto Sustained. Washington, July 1.—The Speaker laid before the House a message from the Senate, announcing that that body had passed over the President's veto the bill to quiet the title of settlers on the Des Moines river land. Oates moved to refer the bill and mes sage to the committee on judiciary. Lost —yeas 101 ; nays 149. The Speaker annouced that the question recurred on the passage of the bill, not withstanding the objections of the Presi dent. The House resolved this question in the negative—yeas 116; nays 91. No consti tutional two-thirds vote in the affirmative. Arctic Relief Bill. Washington, July 1.—The bill passed by the House come time ago for the relief of the survivors of the steamer "Jeannette" and the widows and children of those who perished in the retreat from the wreck of that vessel in the Arctic seas, was reported favorably to the Senate to-day from the Committee on Naval Aflarrs. The Senate committee have amended the bill so as to provide that the twelve months' pay of Henry D. Warren, one of the crew, shall be paid to his child and not to his widow. Signed the Bill. Washington, July 1—The President | has signed the Fitz John Porter bill. Sundry- Civil Bill Parsed. Washington, July 1—The House went into committee of the whole on the sundry civil appropriation bill. Hiscock. of New York, criticised the ap propriation for the public printing office as being inadequate, and warned the Demo cratic side that this pretense of economy could have no other result than to swell the deficiency which must be provided for next year. After a lengthy debate of a political nature, Randall, acting under instructions from the committee on appropriations, offered an amendment appropriating $47, 000 to meet the expenses of the inaugura tion of the statue of Liberty Enlightening the World. Hewitt, of New York, offered a substi tute appropriating $10,0'XJO for that pur pose. Hewitt's amendment, slightly modified, was agreed to—yeas 116, nays 49. The committee then rose and reported the bill to the House. The amendments were agreed to in bulk except those relat ing to the issue of small greenbacks and small silver certificates, which were agreed to without division, and the Bartholdi amendment, which was rejected—yeas 103, nays 106. The bill was then passed and the House adjourned. Naval Academy Appropriation. Washington, July 2. —The clause mak ing an appropriation of $363 for the de ficiency in the expense of the board of visitors to the Naval Academy in June, 18*5, having lieen reached, Mr. Burnes, of Missouri, sent to the Clerk s desk and had read the voucher submitted by the Dis bursing Officer at Annapolis giving an itemized statement of the expenses in curred. Much merriment was indulged in as the Clerk read the list of eatables and drinkables, including turtles, spring chick ens. old chickens, eggs, squash, beer, cog nac, Santa Cruz rum and appolinaris. Cannon called attention to the fact that the Congressional visitors were not subject to criticism in this connection for whatever blame there was attached, to the officers of the Academy who expended the money. Mr. Dingley, of Maine, offered an amend ment providing that none of this sum or any other appropriation made by Congress for the expenses of the board of visitors shall be used to pay for intoxicating liquors. The amendment was adopted. Mr. Dockerey, of Missouri, in speaking to the paragraph relating to the Navy De partment, submitted some remarks in w hich he contrasted the condition of the navy in 1866 with its condition to-day. In 1866 there were 302 serviceable vessels in the navy. To-day there were but 87 vessels, and of these the Secretary of the Navy certified that only 37 were service able. During these twenty years $419, 000,000 had been expended for the naval establishment, of which $90,000,000 had been expended for construction and repair. After finishing 43 of the 119 pages the hill committee rose. Pension Vetoed. Washington. July 2.—The President to-day returned to the House without ap proval the act granting a pension to Wm. Boone. It apj>ears that Boone, who had never made an application for pension to the pension office, enlisted in the army in 1868. He was in action in November of , the same year, and was taken prisoner, and ; at once parolled. During his parole he took part in the Fourth of July celebra tion at Aurora, Illinois, ;n 1863, and was terribly injured by the discharge of a cannon, which he was assisting to manage. In reviewing the case the President says he is unable to discover any relation be tween accident and military service, or any reason why, if the pension is granted as proposed by this bill, there should not also be a pension granted to any of the companion s claimants, who chanced to be injured at the • same time. He says fur ther ''A disabled man and wife in need are objects which appeal to sympathy and charitable feelings of any decent man. hut it seems to me that it by no means follows that those entrusted with the people's business and expenditure of the peoples money are justified in so executing the pension laws as that they shall furnish the means of relief in every case of distress or hardship. Deficiency Appropriation Bill. Washington, July 5. —The House went into committee of the whole, with Ham mond, of Georgia, in the chair, on the gen eral deficiency appropriation bill. A long and at times acrimonious discussion arose over an amendment offered by Cannon, of Illinois, appropriating $22,000 to refund taxes illegally collected from railroad com panies on account of alien bond and stock holders. The amendment was adopted. The clause ratifying and confirming the readjustments of salaries of postmasters, heretofore made by the Postmaster General pursuant to the act of March 3d, 1883, was ruled out on a point of order and an amendment offered by Mr. Burns, of Mis souri, striking out. the entire appropriation for readjustment ($392,394) was adopted. Sparks* Reply. Washington, July 1.—Land Commis sioner Sparks, in reply to the inquiries ol Delegates Voorhees and Toole, of Wash* ington and Montana Territories, respective ly, relative to the policy of the department in respect to the prosecution of persons occupying reserved school sections in Ter ritories, says that school sections are not subject to appropriation by any person after survey, but that it was not the prac tice of his office to recommend prosecution against bona fide settlers, who go upon such lands with the view of ultimately purchasing from the State, when admitted, and a grant thereto shall have been made, but only in eases where parties are de spoiling the land of its timber or other valuable product, or when persons, firms, corporations or combinations are usurping the use of such lands, unlawfully enclos ing them or otherwise dominating their control to public injury and the depriva tion of the rights of others. Change in the Mode ol Proposals. Washington, July 2.—A new system of obtaining proposals for supplying mis cellaneous articles needed at various pub lic buildings situated at different places throughout the country bas l>een inaugu rated at the Treasury Department. Hith erto it has been the custom to eceive bids from residents of the cities in which the buildings needing supplies are situated. This was found to work badly, especially ! in New York, where it was discovered that in some inst ances the was compelled to pay more tor goods '■ bought than they would pay in the open market. Now competition is thrown open and residents in Washington can make proposals npon buildings in New York or i San Francisco, or rice versa. A specific list | has been prepared of items for which pro- i posais are asked at the different buildings, with a blank column opposite for the bid der's name and his offer. These can lie obtained at the Treasury ' Department by any bona fide bidder. , ; Kusine*« Before the Senate. Washington, July 1.—Miller, from the committee on agriculture, reported hack without amendments the House bill taxing oleomargarine and gave notice that he would call it up for action after the pas sage of the appropriation bills. Jones, of Ark, stated that Senators George, Gibson and himself, a minority of the committee, dissented from the report. Riddleberger introduced a preamble and bill for a reduction of 25 per cent on the salary of the Cabinet officers, Senators and members. He said that the discussions of $1,200 clerkships and such things were sufficient to justify the hope that the bill would become a law at the next session of Congress. If they were to commence with reductions on clerks and to conclude with reductions on labor, it seemed to him that they should go hack and begin at the head. The bill was referred to the committee on finance. Mr. Allison called up the House joint resolution extending the appropriations for ten days. After some discussion on the resolution it was amended by extending the time to fifteen days an. was'.hen passed. The Senate resumed its consideration of the legislative appropriation bill. A long discussion took place on the point of order as to whether the amendment to insert the words "in fall compensation" was or was not in conlliet with the rule. The chair submitted the question to the Senate and the amendment was decided to be in order, and it was agreed to. A still longer discussion took place on the proposition of the committee on appropriations to strike out the paragraph for office work con nected with the publication of the records of the rebellion, it being charged that those records were not being edited with im partiality and were not confined to the records of the war periods. A particular instance of this was dwelt upon—that of the Fitz John Porter mat ter. Finally the paragraph was retained, but with a proviso restricting the publica tion of the contemporaneous events of the war, and another proviso directing the publication of the evidence in the Porter case and the report thereon by Judge Ad vocate General Holt. The bill was re ported hack to the Senate, all the amend ments on which a separate vote was not demanded, were agreed to in a hulk. The reserved amendments are to he voted on to-morrow. House Business. Washington, July 2.— On motion of Toole, the Senate bill was passed, provid ing for an additional Justice of the Su preme Court for the Territory of Montana. Payson, of Illinois, from the committee on public lands, reported back the bill, for feiting lands granted to certain Southern States to aid in the construction of rail roads, with the Senate amendment, ex cepting the gulf, inland and ship railroads from the terms of forfeiting. The amend ment was finally agreed to—ayes 154 ; nays 27. Mr. Harter, of Pennsylvania, presented a petition, signed by 2000 Knights oj La bor of the fifth Congressional district of Pennsylvania, urging the passage the bills now pending before Congress alcu lated to protect the interests oi labor. Re ferred. Edmunds' Explanation. Washington, July 1.—A reporter of the Associated Press called npon Senator Ed munds to-day and asked him for an ex planation of his bill, introduced yesterday, relating to the Presidential appointing power, and of the results which were to l»e expected to follow in its enactment into law. Mr. Edmunds said the influence of the Executive over the Senate and Senators on account of the possession of the vast patronage was so great, that the Presi dent practically now had the power of ap pointment to all those offices which are not among the exceptions named in the bill and it was only in extreme instances of of the discovery of had conduct and bad character, such that if they had come to the knowledge of any honest President himself he would have refused to make the appointment, that the Senate rejected a nomination. Therefore Edmunds thought it was an object of public interest to di minish the extent and power of the Presi dential patronage, as connected with its inlluence on the two houses of Congress, and particularly on the Senate. ! '■ i | i Payne Bribery Case. Washington, June 30.—The Republican members of the Ohio delegation in the House of Representatives to-day filed with the Senate committee on privileges and elections a communication asking for a reconsideration of its decision not to grant an investigation into the method ol the election of Henry B. Payne to the U. S. Senate. The communication having been submitted to Senator Sherman he said: "I heartily agree with every word in it and have no objection to my position being known." Another communication 1 from Representatives Little and Butter worth was addressed to Senator Hoar, bear ing npon the Payne investigation and an- j nouncing the possession of information pointing to the bribery of the members of the 66th General Assembly, who voted for Payne. The communication gives extracts of letters and telegrams by way of illus trating the nature of the information re ferred to, and concludes, "your committee, we venture to add in conclusion, will not overlook the fact that onr showing, made in the face of a most persistent and power ful opDOsition of unlimited means and ex pedients, has been one for an investigation and not for final action following an in vestigation." Public Debt Statement. Washington, July 1— The following is the recapitulation ol the debt statement to-day: Interest bearing debt, principal and interest, $1,223,498,126.

Important Bill. Washington, June, 30.—Among the I army hills introduced in the Senate to-day was one, which if itbecomeslaw, will: vest in the President the sole power of appointing a large number of officers who are appoint- : ed now "by and with the advice and con- ; sent of the Senate." Among these are ! postmasters, all classes of collectors of internal revenue, collectors of customs at ports where the gross revenues do not ex- j ceed a certain sum, all Territorial officers except judges of the supreme court, all district attorneys and United States mar shals, Indian agents and land officers. The bill was introduced by Edmunds. Appropriation Bills Before the Senate. Washington, June 30.—The Seuate proceeded to the consideration of the reso- 1 lution for public exeentive session, aüd the j speech of Morrill against the proposed j change was read by Manderson. Hoar also addressed the Senate in oppposition to the proposed change. The conference report on the consular and diplomatic report was submitted by Mr. Allison and agreed to. The chair laid before the Senate the joint resolution extending the appropria tion for ten days. Edmunds objected to the second reading of the resolution for reasons which he said he would state to-morrow. The Senate then proceeded to the con sideration of the legislative appropriation bill. After an executive session the Senate took a recess until this afternoon. At its evening session the Senate re sumed consideration of the legislative ap propriation bill, but took no final action upon it. Much of the evening was con sumed in a desultory discussion over the proposed reduction of the force in the Sur geon General's office, and the reduction was finally rejected. The Senate then, at 11:25, adjourned. Appropriation Bills. Washington, June 30.— The House weut into committee of the whole on the sundry appropriation bill. On motion of Grosvenor, of .Ohio, the amendment was adopted providing that none of the money appropriated for the expenses of the United States courts shall be paid for the fees of marshals or clerks, or any writ or bench warrant for the arrest of any person who may he under indictment by any United States grand jury, when such person is under the recognizance taken liefore any U. S. commissioner requiring his appear ance before the conrt in which such indict- j ment is found. Voorhees, of Washington Territory, offered an amendment appropriating $H><), 000 to carry into effect the order of any j court for the removal of Chinese persons found not lawfully entitled to he or remain in the United States. Rejected. The committee having reached the last j stage of the bill rose. Belmont, of New York, submitted a con ference report on the diplomatic and con sular appropriation bill, when the House adjourned. Failure of Appropriations. Washington, June 30.—Congress hav ing failed to pass the legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bill before the beginning of the fiscal .year, to which it is ; to apply, the executive departments will open to-morrow morning without funds tor the payment of any of their employes. Under the provision of the law, which for bids any department to expend money in any fiscal year in excess of the appropri ations, or to involve the government in any contract for the future payment ol money in excess of the appropriations, it is questionable whether the heads of the de partments have a right to accept the ser vices of their employes with any under standing that they are to be compensated when the appropriations shall be made. However, under accepted legal theory, that in general contracts there are no fractions of a day, it is held that no em barrassment will follow the failure to pass the bill, if the Senate, as it probably will, shall to-morrow take up and pass the emer gency resolution, passed by the House to day, extending the appropriations ol last year temporarily. In this event, if the President approves the resolution, it will bear date of July 1st and will cover the services rendered during that day and thereafter until its termination. : I | i : 1 j I : ; ! j Pennsylvania Republican tion.

New York, July 2. —The convicted boycotters of Theiss, proprietor of the Concert Garden, were arranged in court to day for sentence. Judge Barrett made some strong remarks to them on the crime of which they were convicted. He said this was a violation of the peace of the country, that welcomed foreign born citi zens to the country that offered freedom, privilege and right; they had violated public rights and opinions and their offience was not short of blackmail. The distribution of circulars before places of business was conspiracy and punishable as such. Their conduct, if unpunished, would lead to savagery. They may have been misled by bad advice, but their coun sel should have rebuked them. They did not use the money for their own advantage and this palliated their offense. W'e were told that it had been their custom to rob in that manner. He would not impose the full penalty of the law as they were workingmen. The Judge then sentenced Paul Wietzig and Henry Kolderf to two years and ten months of hard labor ; M ichael Hrop and Julius Rosenberg to one year and six months imprisonment; Daniel Got to three years and eight months imprisonment.
