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
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
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

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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

the President the sole power of appointing
a large number of officers who are appoint- :

ceed a certain sum, all Territorial officers

Appropriation Bills Before the
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
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
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

To Send Your Orders to
Boycotters Sentenced.
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.
