St. Paul, Minn., Aug. 26. At the
Farmers' congress this morning T. S. Cof
fin, of Fort Dodge, la., read an interesting
paper on the great government power in
aiding in freight rates on railroads in
America. He closed by urging the appoint
ment of a national railroad commissioner.
At the close of the address the commit
tee on resolutions presented a report which
was read by the secretary. These resolu
tions were adopted, asking congress to
create the office of secretary of agriculture
and to make this officer a member ot the
cabinet. They also ask the extension of
the signal service to all places reached by
telegraph. They request congress to regu
late interttate commerce in such manner as
to protect the productive industries of the
country. They also recommend aa
appropriation of $30,000,000 to .stamp
out contagious diseases among domestic
animals and requests the secretary of state
to instruct the ministers to Germany and
France to use all proper means to prevent
restrictions upon American farm products
properly inspected and shipped, and urge
upon congress the necessity of a speed'
development of the sj'stcm of water ways,
including the Mississippi river.
The resolutions also recommend the
restoration of the wool tariff of 18G7, and
the maintenace of the tariff on rice and
sugar; that state legislatures be earnestly
requested to pass laws to prevent what is
known as dealing in futures; approves of
the oleomargarine law ami recommends its
The final resolution provides for the in
corporation, under the laws of the Uuited
States, the fanners' congress in the United
States, requesting the farmers of each state
to organize, all assemblies of which shall
be entitled to send representatives to the
farmers' national congress in proportion to
one delegate for eaclTUnited btates senator
and representative in comrress from that
state. Three propositions, one to
adopt the Collum interstate bill, and the
other to adopt the Regin bill, were post
poned. During the discussion of the tariff reso
lutions the siceches took a wide range and
it was treated as a question of protection
against free trade. The protection senti
ment was decidedly in the ascendency and
when the vote was announced in favor of
the resolution as amended, there was much
At the afternoon session a lively discus
sion took place on a resolution recommend
ing the restoration of the wool tariff of
1SS7, amended to include sugar and rice.
The vote was yeas 1.18 34, nays 110 1-4,
southern delegates voting solidly no.
The congress endorsed the oleomargarine
bill and urged that gluco-c be placed
on the same footing. It also favored the
creation of a new" cabinet position with
the department of agriculture.
It wa decided to "hold the next meeting
at Chicago on the first Tuesday before the
opening of the fat stock show in 1SS7.

The President's Tiew.
Xew York. Aug. 20. The Herald
publishes an interview with President
Cleveland in regard to the appointment of
Recorder Mathews, to succeed Frederick
Douglass. The president said: I had only
one object in appointing Mr. Mathews,
namely, to put tha best man I could find,
that is, the best colored man, in the posi
tion. The last thirty years has wrought
great changes in this country. Old rela
tions are broken up and old times can never
return. The north and south are equally
gratified for this fact. You cannot apply
the rules which obtained to yesterday to
things of today. "We are a new nation. "Oc
currences of twenty-five years ago belong
to ancient history. Xow we haTe two great
parties that is our salvation. Every few
years these parties hare a wrestling match.
It is a hot fight throughout the campaign,
but when the fight is over we forget the
fight and settle down .good naturediy to
support the administration in every honest
effort toward good government. ,
The colored people of the south are just
like all the rest of us. The moment they
begin to recognize the duty of citizenship",
that moment they will begin to form con
victions and to be governed by them. Does
any reasonable man suppose when the
white people of the country divide them
selves between the Republican and Demo
cratic psrties, colored people will all think
alike, and join the Republican party? This
is an insult to the colored man's brains. It
is nonsense, and more, it would be a great
political calamity. Difference of opinion
is not only the charm of the republic, but
also its safety, and I have no doubt, neither
has any thoughtful man,- that when educa
tion does its effective work, the colored
race of the south will partly wheel into line
w ith the Republican party and partly in
line with the Democratic party. It cannot
be otherwise so long as human nature is
what it now is.
I have great respect for the colored peo
ple. Again and again I have told delega
tions which visited me fhey must havecon
victions of their own and act on them; they
must choose their politics with thoughtful
care and personal independence. In that
way alone can the- become worthy citizens
of the best government in the world.
I appointed Mr. Matthews solely because
I belieed him to be the right man for the
place, and I feel ceitain the people will
come to see I am right.

. Y. Street Car Troubles.
Xevt Youk, Aug. 28. Two cars started
out early on the Broadway line. They had
strong police protection. " No crowd is tol
erated anywhere which might by any pos
sibility obtruct speedy transit.
Police Iaspector Steers has just tele
graphed Police Superintendent ifurray that
a riotous mob of strikers collected in upper
Broadway and started down town. The
reserves hae been ordered to the scene.

Forty fourth street about 10 o'clock it was
attacked by a mob of roughs and strikers
and thrown from the track.
The cracks of policemen's ciuba upon the
heads of the roughs could lw heard above
the veils and cur-os of the mob. It took
but "a few moments of vigorous work by
the police to clear Broadway and send the
striker flying down side streets. A num
ber of cars are being run, each carrying
sir policemen. The streets arc filled "with
It is feared unless a settlement it effected
tonight, all cars will be tied up tomorrow.
There was a plot on foot to blow up the
Third avenue stable-, but all precautions
are being taken. Several mobs have been
dispersed bv policemen.
In a conference this afternoon between j
the Broadway railroad authorities and the
strikers, the latter received a renewal of the I
proposition to try the nw schedule of six
trips per day. with a promise that after a
faithful trial of four days if it as not sat
isfactory the old one would v be restored.
This proposition was considered until after
midnight by the men and w&i accepted.
Theywili return to work tomorrow.
This afternoon it was given out that the
Broadway car troubles were over; that the
company and the strikers had agreed, and
that the cars would be running in two

of cap, and it is understood th, secret

London, August 26. The queen tele
graphed to Bucharest for news of Alexan
der. Conflicts have taken place in the
streets of Sophia between the followers of
Alexander and those of Zankoff. Alexan
der's adherents are still in prison. Carna-
j roff, the Russian commander of Alexan
der's yacht, telegraphed that the prince was
handed over to The Russian authorities. It
is the general opinion that Russia will not
permit Alexander to re-ascend the throne.
Russia's statement that Alexander has been
released is not credited in Vienna. The
Daily Xcws says England can worthily ap
ply herself diplomatically to promote the
progress of the people who have so admira
blo come" out of the Zankoff affair.
The foreign office is informed that Alex
ander is safe, free and en route home. He
was set free at Reni. It is believed his re
turn will restore quiet in Bulgaria,

in the house of commons that loyal troops

Thomas Sexton, a Parnellite, gave notice
to the house of commons this evening of
his intention to move the following amend
ment to the Queen's speech: "We humbly
represent to your majesty that the circum
stances unaccountable for the recent riots
in Belfast indicate the necessity for special
measures to maintain order there, the most
urgent of these measures being the re es
tablishmcnt of your majesty's authority in
the district where-from the police have
been expelled by the increase of local con
stabulary to such strength as will enable it
to deal With any probable contiuguency.
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, chief secretary
of Irerand, declared that General Bullcr
was not sent to Ireland to establish martial
law, nor to strain the ordinary law, but
merely to assist the civil authorities in the
work of preserving social order. This
reply was not deemed satisfactory by the
opposition, and Mr. Russel moved the ad
journment of the houe. The opposition,
consisting of the w hole Giadstonian and
Parnellite members, are here in supjiort of
the motion and Mr. Russel contended that
the nolicv of the government was to de
grade Ireland to the level of a savage and
The Right Hon. Edward Stanhope, col
onial secretary, announced that the govern
ment hoped to open an emigration bureau
during neit October. They did not, he
said, intend to promote emigration, but
simply to ireulate information of the kind
most desirable, for poor people thinking of
going abroad, to know
Lord Churchill said that 3Ir. Russel had
made an earnest and exhaustive speech. I le
(Rusel) held strong opinion-, and uxtl
strong language. He had warned them
that the appointment of Sir General Butler
would imperil civil and religious liberty,
the freedom of the press and administra
tion of justice, and would cause a con
flagration over the whole of Ireland
(Laughter ) Supposing that Mr. Ilus-cl's
motion was carried, what would be the ef
feet? "Why absolutely nothing. The
house would adjourn and a day be lost, and
when the members met again General
Buller would be on his way to Kerry
(Laughter). Mr. Russel wished to raise a
question: he should have moved an amend
ment to the address. ' If then the amend
ment liad Iv.-en carried it would have put
an end to General Iiuller's mission, and
would also have ended the present govern
ment, which was more to Mr Rua-eM pur
pose Con-ervative cheers I am told that
this motion was introduced in order
to interrupt the regular proceedings of the
house (cheers; and intervene between the
house and the speech of Mr. Ciiamberlain

It seem? ctranire that the strong feeling
just shown did not explode on preious
nights, bu; lias Iven enraully pent up un
tiC he occasion hen Mr Chamberlain in
tended to resume the debate (cheers and
laughter in which Mr. Chamberlain joined).
It is a great compliment to Mr. Chamber
lain, ixleame it shows the opposition fear
the effects of his argument.-. In conclu
sion Mr Churchill said. The motion "aill
not have a pralical issue. The government
refuses to discus the merits' of Gen.
Bullcr s appointment and will have nothing
more to do with ihz discussion. Cheers;
Sir "William Vernon Harcourt strongly
objected to the tone and spirit in which the !
aopomtmeut had been announce!, it wa.-
apparently meant that General Buikrr was

opiniorw of the 6ppQiiknx would !? ma
ieriaily modified. He deprecated the pro- j
vocative attitude of the Government on ihi
question, but he hoped Mr. Ruel would
withdraw hm motion.
Sir Michael Hicks-Bach, chief cretary
for Ireland, said he would cot have takm
part in the discussion, but for the outrageous
attacks upon the chancier of an officer as
humane as he was brave General Buller
was selected because the government belier
that he would act uprightly, co&stitutfonal
ly, jostlj and hamaaaly. (Cbeeza). The
appointment was a civil one and not a mili
tary one. General Buller would possess
the" powers of a divisional magistrate, en-
ablimrhimto do all necessary to repress
crime and outraccs. The inspector genenu
of the constabulary had telegraphed that he
would give General Bnller his heartiest
supportT General Buller would report
onlv to the chief secretary for Ireland.
Mr. Russell's motion was finally rejected
by a vote of 243 to 146.

Lord Churchill asked for a promise that
the debate should terminate tomorrow,

The Russian charge d' affairs had an in
terview with the foreism secretary. He pro
tested against the insulting language of the
English press, and said that the Czar had
no knowledge of the Bulgarian conspiracy.

deeply moved. He telegraphed his father
that he would visit Darmstadt before return

treated him and his brother with indignity.

Belfast, Aug. 26. Everything is quiet
here today. Huge paving stones and
broken glass mark the scene of last night's
riot. Rev. Dr. Kane, Protestant clergy
man, who declared that unless the police
were immediately disarmed 200,000 armed
Orangemen would relieve them of their
weapons, is again out with a declaration
charging the magistrates of Belfast with
criminal parleying with lawlessness.
