SIXTEEN PA
Question Raised in Connection with
Consideration of Treaty of
Peace in Senate.
CLARA BARTON IS SPECIALLY HONORED.
She la Extended the Privileges o£ tl»e
Floor of the Senate—Ofllcer» nntl
Agents of Red Crosa Society
Thanked—House Considers Dlplo
luatlc and Consular Bill.
Washington, Jan. 12.—Senator Al
lison' (la.) reported the Indian ap
propriation bill and gave notice that lie
would call it up Friday.
Senator Hawley (Conn.), of the mil
itary affairs committee, reported a joint
resolution tendering the thanks of con
gress to Clara Barton and the officers
and agents of the Red Cross society
for their humane service towards the
Armenians and towards both sides in
the Hispano-American war.
Senator Hoar asked for immediate
consideration of the resolution, which
was passed after Senator Hoar ex
plained that the privileges of the floor
as a result would be extended in any
event only to Miss Barton, and he did
not believe she would trouble any
body.
Under a special order the senate
passed 16 unobjected bills 011 the pri
vate pension calendar, and at 1:10 p. m.t
on motion of Senator DaV.i, went into
executive session.
Contend for Open Sessions.
The first part of the executive ses
sion was spent in considering the mo
tion of Senator Berry, of Arkansas, to
have the discussion of the peace treaty
take place in open session. Senator
Berry opened the discussion in behalf
of the motion, saying that the people
who would be most affected and were
most interested in the decision to be
reached should have full knowledge of
the reasons for and against ratifying
the treaty. Senator Vest supported
Senator Berry in his contention that
the proceedings of the senate on the
treaty should be conducted in open ses
sion. He said that the question at issue
was one of such general importance
that the public was entitled to know
all that was said and aone by its'pub-,
lie servants. He also adverted to ths
•iacl—ihat 'the--proceedings of execur
•tive sessions are often published, thus
rendering it impossible to 'preserve se
crecy even if desirable to do so.
Senators Frye, Hale and others spoke
in opposition to the motion, contend
ing for the propriety of following prece
dent in the present instance in the
senate.
Many questions of a delicate nature
would necessarily arise in the consider
ation of the treaty, and while it was
possible that some of the proceedings
might reach the public, they would not
go out in an official form, and the effect
would not be the same as if given out
officially.
Should Proceed Cautiously.
The senate devoted a few minutes
of its executive session to the consider
ation of the promotions of Rear Ad
mirals Sampson, Schley and other naval
officers out of their regular order. Sen
ator Hale made an effort to have the
nominations confirmed, but at Senatoi
Chandler's instance action was post
poned. Senator Chandler suggested
that while the honors conferred were
the result of a laudable desire to reward
gallantry, the senate should proceed
cautiously, so as to make sure of not
doing injustice to other meritorious of
ficers, who did not have the same op
portunities for distinguishing them
selves as these officers whose nomina
tions had been sent to the senate.
Other spealcers in Opposition to the
public discussion of the treaty were
Senators Davis, Gray and'Teller. They
urged that the treaty was the most im
portant ever made by this govern
ment and therefore contended for the
observance of the proper forms in its
consideration. As they regarded the
question the time was especially inop
portune for changing the practice of
the senate in this matter. Senators
Davis, Frye and Gray, all members of
the peace commission, united in saying
that their experience in formulating
the treaty had convinced them that I
much would come up in. considering
it in the senate which should not be
given to the public. Their united ver
diet had an appreciable effect upon
other senators and it soon became evi
dent that the chances of success of the
Berry amendment had been consider
ably impaired.
Attacks Policy of Administration.
Washington,Jan. 12.—Representative
Carmack (Tenn.) made a vigorous at
tack in the house on the administra
tion's Philippine policy, denouncing it
as launching the government on a rev
olutionary career of conquest and crim
inal aggression.

WILL TAKfi TROOPS FROM PANA
Gov. Tanner Serves Notice on Oper
ators That the State AVill Not Fur
nish Them Protection Longer,
Pana, 111., Jan. 12.—Gov. Tanner has
notified Sheriff Thomas J. Downey and
Lieut. Col. Frank Wells, who have
charge of the coal miners' strike situa
tion and the command of the state
militia post here, of his intention at an
early date to recall all troops, leaving
matters entirely in control of Sheriff
Downey and his deputies. Gov. Tan
ner, it is stated, gives as his reason
for recalling the soldiers that the coal
opei*ators have had ample time to ami
cably adjust their differences with the
miners under protection, as he has
given them during the past five months
that the state troops have been sta
tioned here, and as there seems no
trouble imminent he sees no need for
further retaining troops here, at the
continued heavy expense of $600 peT
day to the state. It has cost^the state
over $65,000 to protect the coal oper
ators, their property and the imported
negroes during the past five months,
and Christian county $1S,000. The op
erators and their friends anticipate
trouble after the troops depart, but
Sheriff Downey differs with them, and
says, no matter what results, he will
control the situation in the case of the
removal of the soldiers. The negroes
have become jealous of the nonunion
white miners employed in the mines
because they receive more pay, the
natural result of working steadier, and
allege they will not permit whites to
work with them. As a result of the
growing animosity, these two factions
fought, a battle near Springside, in
which several on both sides were wound
ed. Warrants are out for the partici
pants in the affray.
HIS MESSAGE READ.
Gov. Scolield Slakes Recommenda
tions to the Legislature of
Wisconsin.
Madison, Wis., Jan. 12.—Gov. Scofleld'a
message was rea,d at the session of the
legislature Thursday In both houses. It Is
a very exhaustive document, going in
detail into the financial and all the affairs
of the state. Among the important rec
ommendations is one to prohibit issuing ot
passes by railroads, telephone or telegraph
companies to public officials or through
them to others. It also urges higher taxa
tion of express, sleeping car and insurance
companies. The first bill of the session
was the anti-pass bill introduced in the
senate by Eaton, of Cudahy. It Is very
sweeping, prohibiting the issuing of any
Pass,, fnink or privilege .by any rbUroad,
tfelegraph, telephone or like corporation
to any state, county or municipal officer
or member of the legislature. Both houses
adjourned to Tuesday.
Springfield, 111., Jan. 12.—So far as actua!
business was concerned neither house did
much Thursday. The lower body passed
a set of rules and Representative Tibbitts
put in a resolution to pay the national
guard from the time it was called out by
Gov. Tanner to the time it ^as mustered
into the service of the United States. The
democrats tried to have a rule inserted
that when a bill was sent to the senate it
should be reported back inside of ten days.
The republicans did not look with favor on
this and rejected the proposition.
Over on the senate side Senator Dunlap
had a resolution passed designed to check
the persistency and boring qualities of lob
byists and busybodies, who now have the
free run of that chamber. Mr. Dunlap's
resolution instructs the secretary of the
senate to have a railing erected extending
around the back part of the room.
The house and senate adjourned till Fri
day morning at ten o'clock.
Chairman McCullough, of the election
committee, announced that the contests
will be called in the order of districts at
two o'clock on Tuesday afternoon next.
HAVE MEADE, THE CRIMINAL.
Desperate Character Is Arrested for
a Post Office Robbery in
Mississippi.
Meridian, Miss., Jan. 12.—The post
office at Enterprise, Miss., was blown
open with dynamite Monday night and
the burglar escaped after obtaining
a considerable amount of stamps,
money orders and cash. The police are
now certain that the robbery was com
mitted by Thrasher Meade, one of the
most desperate criminals in the coun
try.
Meade was arrested in Mobile and
taken to Enterprise, but not until after
a desperate fight with the officers. A
large quantity of jiostage stamps, blank
money orders and $1,138 in cash stolen
from the safe at the Enterprise post
office were recovered. '.••-•vVr:"
Deplorable Condition of Culians.
New York, Jan. 12.—A letter received
by Stephen E. Barton, chairman of the
Cuban relief committee, from Mr. War
ner, recently sent to the Sancti Spiritus
district in Cuba, says that there are
7,531 destitute women and children in
the town, with 1,392 men to provide for
them, more than half of whom are too
sick and weak to even help themselves.
"The condition of the people in the
little villages and country," he says,
"is even worse than in the city."

A Rupture Probable.
Pittsburgh, Pa., Jan. 12.—A rupture
in next week's interstate convention of
mine workers and operators over the
adoption of the interstate agreement
is regarded as probable.
It developed Thursday that many op
erators have opposed the present agree
ment, and that they intend. to oppose
a "mine" clause and will insist upon
a ten-hour day instead of eight hours,
as at present, and will demand a reduc
tion of wages. The miners have not
yet considered the new agreement, but
it is the general sentiment among them
that any attempt to increase the hours
of labor, cut wages or to strike out im
portant clauses will be vigorously
fought in the convention.
Dropped Dead on His Engine.
Pana, 111., Jan. 12.—A. W. Kirkwood,
of Pana, aged 65, the oldest engineer on
the Springfield division of the Ohio &
Mississippi, now the Baltimore & Ohio
Xorthwestern railroad, having in 1870
run the f\fst engine over the tracks,
dropped dead on his engine at Altamont.
Mr. Kirkwood had amassed quite a for
tune during his long railroad service.

had an extensive acquaintance over
three states. He is survived by his

Ont., situated opposite Detroit, and of
the great distillery which bears his

DENISON, IOWA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1899.
PASSES THE CRISIS.
Doctors KOTO Encouraged to Hope
That Congressman Dingle)
AVill Get Well.
&•
SVashington, Jan. 12.—Representative
Dingley, according to his physician,Dr.
H. B. Deale, has now passed the crisis
•and is considerably improved. Dr.
Deale is now confident of his patient's
jfecovery. Wednesday night Mr. Ding-
gained much rest, sleeping natural
ly, as he has been able to do several
nights, and the gain in his condition
Thursday forenoon was very percepti
ble.
..At 11 o'clock Dr. Deale said that un
less something unforeseen took place,
j|r. Dingley would recover.
wBChe follovviag bulletin was posted at
ie Hamilton house, where Mr. Ding-
lives:
Workers' convention was? called to or- ^"Eleven a. m.—Mr. Dingley passed a
der,.the chairman of the investigating comfortable night. I'ulse and gen
committee reported that the commit- ?f»l condition good. Doctors encour
tee had worked on the books all night a&ed.'' ^A
and would not be ready to report to the S
convention for several hours. A recess
was then taken until one o'clock in the
afternoon.
Prior to the resumption of the ses
sion a sensation was sprung by the dis
covery that during the absence of the
investigating committee at breakfast,
unknown persons had entered the
committee room in the St. Charles ho
tel and mutilated the records. Eight
een pages were torn from the ledger
and carried away, while many other
pages were blotted and blurred. The.
thief or thieves left no clew and the
announcement of the outrage caused
intense indignation. The miners' offi
cials believe that the object of the per
son who mutilated the books was to
destroy the records from Illinois. This
state had been gone over by the investi
gating committee and no objections
were found to seating any of the dele
gates represented by the commirtee on
credentials. Another object the thief
may have had, it is claimed, was to
make it necessary to send for the cash
books, it having been decided by the
convention Wednesday afternoon not
to send for them.

Canadian Lnmber Interests
Try ins to Agree.
Washington. Jan. 12.—Keprestrita
tixes of the American and the Cana
dian lumber interests met in confer
ence here.
(Lumber, it is said, has been the rock
oi* which the United States and Cana
dian joint commisioners have split in
every eifort at agreement on a reci
procity treaty. The Canadians have
been willing to make any reasonable
concessions for free white pine and
have hesitated to agree to any con
cessions without important reciprocal
advantages on lumber. Free admis
sion to Canada of American forest prod
ucts and free export of saw logs and
pulp wood are the concessions the
Canadians offer.

A POLITICAL TRAGEDY.
A Story of Political Vengence and Its Sad
Results.
Many months ago, the gang of poli
ticians who are attem »'.ng to run the
democratic pirty in this county, de
cided upon the downfall of It. Shaw
Van. In order to do this various can
didates were brought out against him
and finally their choice fell upon Col.
Geo. L. Wright as the tool by which to
reek their vengeance. Although it was
not generally known, the members of
his family felt that lie was not strong
enough to stand the excitement of a
campaign, but he was over persuaded
and, aided by his influence, Shaw Van
was defeated.
After the election the weight of the
responsibility rested heavily upon the
Colonel's shoulders. The REVIEW
sharply criticised the raise of salary
asked for by him and granted by the
board. He appealed to the liulletin to
support and tVinl him. but in vain
and this, with the apparent apathy of
those who should have befiiended
him caused him to brood until his mind
became unsettled
As long as the REVIEW had reason to
believe that it was criticising a man in
full possession of his mental powers, a
man able to defend and take care of
himself, we fell free to treat him as we
wou any other political opponent
whom we felt had done that which was
not, for the public good. As soon, how
ever, as it was intimated to us that
Col. Wright was of unsound mind all
criticisms ceased and from that day to
this not one word of adverse comment
has appeared in the columns of the RE
VIEW. We are willing to take our
chances in political warfare with a foe
man who is mself eauipped for the
battle, but God forbid that we should
ever pursue any man whose reason is
dethroned. To contest *(ith an able
opponent is legitimate but to attack a
man when he is down, when the hand
of misfortune rests heavily upon him,
is a mean and cowardly thing.
These facts—that Colonel Wright
was not in sound mind—were perfectly
well known to this gang of political
assassins, and one would have thought
they would have hesitated before en
tering the house of misfortune with
their pitiful political- plots, one would
have thought tUat ltiV~sacrednes8 of a
wife's and a daughter's agony would
have said to them, "thus shalt thou
go and no farther." But no, no grief
was too sacred, no sorrow too complete,
heir political fortunes must be fur
thered at the expense of a wife's tears
and protests. The tottering intellect
might be driven entirely from its
throne but their plots must thrive.
This was their plan, Colonel Wright
although admittedly of unsound mind
was to qualify for the office, not to hold
it, they knew he could not, but in order
that he might resign and thus create a
vacancy to be filled by one of their
heuchmeu. This was the plot, a plot
urged by frequent visits to the house
of sorrow. A plot pushed with all the
vigor of a deep laid scheme. A bond
was prepared, they signed it, signed it
knowing that the man whose official
bond it was, was not of sound mind.
They went to the house and urged, en
treated, yes eveu demanded and threat
ened. Can you imagine the scene?
On one hand is the crafty, cool, politi
cian pursuing his course with demonia-.
cal persistency, in his hand is the offi
cial bond. With pitiless cruelty he
urges the poor, half dazed man before
him to stultify himself, to take the
oath of an office he knows himself untit
to fill. He moans, "Take me away,
take me away, if I do not qualify they
will kill me." The wife stands there,
tears are iu her eyes, but the courage
of conviction is in her face, she will no
longer allow her husband to be made a
tool of their political chicauery. It,
would seem that the load of sorrow
were already great enough but she
must iu addition to caring for her help
less helpmate, defend him against these
crafty and designing men. She has de
termined at any cost to preserve her
husband's honor.
The politician is disappointed and
angefed, a woman's will has thwarted
his designs. The victim of his relent
less activity is taken away far from the
scene of political conflict, and one
would tbiuk that he might at last be
allowed to go in peace.
But it is not enough, the newspaper
controlled body and soul by these de
gn ug politicians, pursues him still.
Although all the other newspapers re
strained by a proper sense of decency,
and respect for the unfortunate, pass
the matter over as lightly as possible,
the Bulletin is the first to boldly blazon
to the world the tact tliat
thjs man j3
iuaaqe: And coupled with,i.W8! itj^a^a
him an iugrate.
Witness the following from an edi
torial iu the last issue of the Bulletin:
Thus the democratic party is put in a
hole by out* of Lhe very men whom the
lei'ple voted most unanimously for.
VOLUME XXXIV NO. 4.
With his bond made out and signed,
Col. Wright refused to file it. He real
ized not the duty be owed to the party,
He forgot the honors it conferred upon
him. He could not see the advantage
which his action in not filing the bond
would bring to those who had viciously
attacked and abused him.
As ungrateful, as embarrassing
this all seems to the democratic party,
it must be laid to insanity.
Oh how vile a thing to do. If he was
insane, he was not accountable for his
acts, and no man has a right to point
his linger at him in accusation.
No one but a hired assassin of char
acter would do this. No man who had
a character himself, no man who had a
spark of decent manhood in his breast
would have done it.
All this has been done in the name of
the democratic party, not for its prin
ciples, not for any cause that is good
and pure but solely that the men who
are now guiding it to its utter ruin
might reveuge themselves on one man,
and foist another into place.
THE BAND CONCERT.
The conc'ert given by our band at
Germania Halle Wednesday evening
was fairly well attended, and was one
of the best musical entertainments to
which the Denison people have had the
priviledge of listening for some time.
Every selection ou the program was
rendered in the mo3t elegant and pleas
ing style.
The second number "Jolly Robbers"
seemed to be the best received by the
audience and was given great applause,
although the trombone solo by Mr. W.
F. Rollins was a great "hit" also. The
closing march "Uncle Sam" was very
good and aroused the patriotism of all
present. Denison has one of the best
bands in western Iowa, and they de
serve the patronage of the Denison peo
ple. They will give another concert
in February and should have a crowded
house.
THE REVIEW LEADS.
The board did not decide the county
printing question to day as was expect
ed. The sworn statements of the pub- ^./zi'S
lishers showed the REVIEW in the lead. SSlW
with nearly three hundred more sub
scribers than any other paper in the
county. According to circulation the*
standing of the papers is as follows:
1st. T1i6 Review. 2nd. The
tung. 3d. The Bulletin. 4th. The1
Demokrat. 5th. The Observer, Vail.
6th. The Enterprise, Dow City.
The four other papers of the county
made no showing. The matter was laid
over until to-morrow morning.
Recorder Criswell presented a claim
of |200 extra for deputy hire whicHv
was rejected by the board. The boarit
will adjourn to-morrow.
