In a colloquoy between Hawley of
Connecticut and himself, as to Presi

He certainly represented the senator
from Connecticut, who was following
"In one thing," said Hawley, "in one
thing, and for a short while."
"Temporary allies under a brief coa
lition and for a particular purpose,"
said Morgan bitterly.
Morgan did not conclude his speech
this evening, and in reply to a question
by Voorhees, said he would not go on
in the morning. He would not have
said a word today, as he did not feel
strong enough; it was hard work, but
he did not feel that he could stand in

Various Statesmen Tell Row to Purify
Washington, Sept. 29,—1n the houße
the debate on the Tucker bill, repealing
the federal election laws was resumed.
Lacey, of lowa, spoke in opposition. He
said tbe bill was inopportune ;no fed
eral election took place until 1894; yet
at this crisis with an extraordinary ses
sion of congress to deal with financial
questions this bill is dragged into the
area. What was tbe reason? Tbe
Democratic party waß confronted by a
great danger last fall by fusion in some
Etates, by chicanery in others. By ad
vocating free silver and gold mono
metallism tbe Democrats bad
come into power. The president at
tempted to carry out a programme
against silver. He split his party in
twain. Suddenly, by a decree of the
party caucus, this bill was brought in.
Why? To heal the breach; to rally the
whole strength of tbe party with the
war cry, "Down with federal cnpervieion
of elections." •
Lacy laid great stress on the constitu
tionality of these laws, then began to
speak of the alleged election outrages in
the south, bringing on a wordy ex
change with Kolbert, of South Carolina,
when he reached that State, Lacey get
ting the best of the encounter.
After Lacey had concluded, McLaurin
of Sontb Carolina replied as to the
strictures on that state, declaring that
he was in favor of local self-government.
Wilson, of Washington, wanted to
know if the Democratic party was in
favor of home rule, why Cleveland ap
pointed Southern men to places in Min
nesota, North and South Dakota and
other northern states?
De Armond of Missouri followed in
support of the measure.
The proper way, said De Armond, to
purify the ballot, was the adoption of a
system like the Australian ballot law.
That law rested on the assumption that
the people can rule, while tbe federal
election laws rest on the theory that

SOUTHERN PACIFIC TOURISTS.
An invasion of Tramps from
Trainmen Unable to Keep Them Off
The Oakland Water Front War Vigor
ously Renewed—The State Horti
cultural Society—Other Pa
cific Coast New*.
By the Associated Press.
San Francisco, Sept. 29.—The super
intendent of the Southern Pacific at
Sacramento wired tbe railroad officials
here that about 200 tramps were en
route to that city, coming from Portland
and other points north and east. The
men were represented as a rough lot,
and tbe superintendent asked for ordors
as to the course he should pursue. He
said about 100 of them had traveled on
passenger trains out of Ashland, and
had defied the train hands for a time in
their efforts to eject them. They were
finally put off in Hornbrook, but were
picked up by the following freight and
again brought on their way. In addition
to this gang. 100 more had started out
of liod Bluff this morning on a freight
and the members of both those parties
openly stated that they were only the
advance guard of what was to come.
Tbe crew on the passenger train
were kept busy in their efforts
to keep the fellows off, and the latter
were unsparing in their threats to get
even with the railroad company for
ejecting them. Tbey swarmed over the
roofs of the care, crowded upon the
platforms and some of the more venture
some rode on the brakebeams and even
on tbe pilot of the locomotive. In towns
where they had stopped it was reported
that chicken coops and other store
houses of material for food had suffered
severely, and much apprehension waß
felt as to what 'could be tbe result of
tbe incoming of the travelers. No efforts
were made to put them off tbe freight
trains, as tbe trainmen foresaw that such
action would only lead to trouble. Gen
eral Superintendent Fillmore tele
graphed instructions to carry tbe men
when it was found that they were
in too large numbers to be kent
off. Speaking of tbe matter, Mr.
Fillmore said that he could do nothing
else. Some of these fellows were un
doubtedly desperate characters from
telegrepbed reports, and if force were
used to keep them from the trains, the
result might not only be disastrous to
the railroad company, bnt to tbe travel
ing public also. If the advance con
tingent mnkes good time it may be ex
pected in this city Sunday.
Sacramento, Sept. 29.—Eighty tramps
who boarded a freight train in Oregon
reached this place late tonight. The
rest stopped along the road. Tbey had
no trouble with tbe trainmen. Most
of them prove to be from tbe Idaho
mines which have been shut down.
They are going on south from here.
No serious depredations have been com
mitted by those here.
MARKETING OF FRUIT.
An Interesting Session of the State Hor
San Francisco, Sept. 29.—The call for
a special meeting of the California State
Horticultural society, which was held
today, announced that the session would
be wholly given up to matters involved
in district marketing of California fruits.
There was a large attendance, and three
hours' time was spent in the free intei
change of views, not only of fruit growers
themselves, but of tbe managers of or
ganizations, traffic men and commission
merchants. Discussion of the question
in band brought out prominently and
unmistakably the one important fact
that the future prosperity of the fruit
industry oi California is contingent on
getting the product to market within
scheduled time. Among the speakers
were 8. J. Stateler, of Sutter county; S.
W. Buck, manager of the California
Fruit union; A. G. Freeman, E. W.
Maalin, Dr. W. B. Gibbon of Alameda
and M. Monteaste of Tulare. Richard
Gray, traffic manager of the Southern
Pacific company, was also invited to
speak. He promised that anything the
railroad company could do to promote
the fruit industry of California would
be its careful study. He denied that the
company had failed in its fruit services
and declared that it bad lived up to tbe
letter and spirit of its agreement. At
the suggestion of President Lelong, the
next meeting will be held at San Jose,
in connection with the Santa Clara
County Fruit exchange, where the same
subject will betaken up for further dis
cussion. All tbe present officers were
renominated for next year, with the ad
dition of H. A. Brainard of San Jose,
director. The president was instructed
to appoint a committee of three to at
tend the irrigation congress at Los
Angeles October 13th«
A NEW DEAL FOR DIEHL.
The Deserved Promotion of a Worthy
Chicago, Sept. 29.—A circular has
been isßued from the general offices of
the Associated Press by General Man
ager Stone, announcing tbe appoint
ment of Col. Charles S. Diehl as assist
ant general manager, with the fuli
powers attached to such a position.
Colonel Diehl is well and favorably
known in newspaper circles. He first
engaged in active daily newepaper work
in 18730n the Chicago Times, with which
paper he remained 10 years as a reporter,
correspondent and assistant editor. His
work for that paper, particularly as a
correspondent in the field duriug three
noted Indian campaigns, brought his
name into prominence. He accom
panied Terry's column in tbe spring
and summer of 1877 against the
Sioux, and was with Miles in the
campaign of 1878 against the Nez Perces.
He was with the expedition commanded
by Colonel Ilges against the Sioux in
the extreme northern portion of Dakota
in the tvinter of 1879-SO. On bis way
to join the expedition, he carried official
dispatches to Colonel Ilgeß from Ueneral
Sheridan, having an armed escort. Tbe
party were lOBt two days in a blizzard,
out of which it was regarded as remark
able that any of its members came alive,
but as Diehl was the only correspondent
in the field, his paper had tbe satisfac
tion of receiving the only telegraphic
narativo of the winter battle with the
Sioux at Poplar creek, on the upper
Missouri. In 1883 he entered the ser
vice of the Associated Press at Chicago.
Among other features of his work while
here, was reporting tbe execution of
Louis Kiel, leader of tbe half-breed
rebellion in Northweßt territory.
This occurred at tht government prison,

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SATURDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 30. 189.3
T, in the winter of 1886. Although
alone, and having opposed to him tie
correspondents of Canadian and English
papers, his work was such that the As
sociated Press was enabled to beat the
Canadian correspondent into their own
cities with the hanging, and inrnish tbe
first news of it to the English govern
ment. In 1887 he was transferred to
San Francisco, as the Pacific coast man
ager, in charge of all the interests of the
Associated Press in that section. He re
mained there until today, and during
his stay on the Pacific coast organized
for the Associated Press a new service,
embracing the Pacific coast states and
the Samoan and Hawaiian islands. It
has been the good fortune of this agency,
throngh its correspondents on the coast
and the Pacific islands, to report some
of tbe moat remarkable Incidents in re
cent American history.
FENCES TORN DOWN.
The Oakland Water Front War Re
newed—The Hob Victorious.
Oakland, Sept. 29.—Early this morn
ing a force of men, said to be in the em
ploy of the Southern Pacific company,
built a fence across the foot of Castro
street. About6oo people assembled and
pulled the fence down when it had been
completed. Under police protection a
wire fence was then put across the
street, blocking access to the water. An
immense crowd of several thousand peo
ple gathered, bnt owing to the presence
of tbe police made no demonstration. At
noon the crowd was still there.
About 9 o'clock tonight a third attack
waß made upon the fence and this time
tbe mob was more successful than it was
this afternoon. Kiot signals were
sounded from a neighboring factory and
arout 5000 people flocked to the ecene;
they immediately made an assault on
the wire fence and soon destroyed it.
The rioters threatened to lynch
the Southern Pacific guards and
both the guards and police were power
less to prevent tbe destruction of tho
property. The rioters then went to
Brush and Grove streets, where another
fence had been erected and they soon
demolished it. This time they stoned
the police and guards and injured one or
two of them. One rioter was also in
jured. Five of the mob were placed un
der arrest. The crowds finally dis

Australian Plutocracy Nil.
With all its faults, with all its igno
rance and with all its passions the de
mocracy of Australia has a political
ideal. The plutocracy has none. It is
fully occupied with its own affairs. It
rallies to no public cry. This is the
feature of Australian life which seems
to threaten most danger to the future.
The country which is not governed by
its ablest men is l>adly governed, and
the inclination of the more cultivated
classes to abstain from touching the par
liamentary machine does infinitely great
er damage to the colonies than any at
tempt on the part of trades hall social
bits to "capture" it.
But it does not follow that this atti
tndo is permanent! It is the fashion to
say that the labor people have every
thing t heir own way and have made pol
itics impossible. It was the fashion to
say the sarn9 in regard to industry be
fore necessity taught the employers to
unite. Let any political need press hard
enough, lot any political cause stir
warmth enough, and the same ability,
the same energy, the same public spirit
roused again to union on a wider field
are not likely to achieve a less result. —

Small Demand for Shoes.
People have not been lavish in their
purchases of shoes of late years. The
surplus of them is undoubtedly smaller
than usual, and yet the quantities dis
tributed throughout the country have
been sufficiently extensive to enable deal

When the clouds vanish from the com
mercial horizon, as nobody doubts they
will—and it does not look reasonable
they should obscure the prospect much
longer—there will be greatly enlarged

done except to get under cover, if there
is any shelter anywhere, and wait until

THE AMERICA'S CUP.
Relative Merita of the Valkyrie and
New Yohk, Sept. 29.—Tbe Evening
Telegram cays: Lord Dnnraven is eaid
to be curious to know alt about tbe
American cup defender, and went
aboard tbe Vigilant at New Rocbelle
last Sunday and was much impressed
with tbe appearance of tbe vessel.
Commodore Sutton tbinks the Val
kyrie may outfoot the Vigilant before
the wind, but does not believe she can
point or reach as well. "In any event,"
said Commodore Sutton, "the Valkyrie
is an American model and should she
win the victory will not be discredit
able to American yachting skill."
Colonel King has a high opinion of
the Valkyrie's ability. "Make no mis
take," said the colonel, "the English
yacht is a very fast boat. Ido not say
she can beat tbe Vigilant, but it will be
a very close race."
The impression made by the Val
kyrie's trial spins is on tbe whole favor
able, but experts of the New York and
the Atlantic yacht clubs express the
opinion that the English boat is not as
"lively" as the Vigilant.
New York, Sept. 29.—The Valkyrie
was given another spin down the bay,
today. The elements were favorable
and the racer fairly flew through the
waters. It seems very probable from
this trial that she can beat the Vigilant
before the wind, but if she can bore into
the wind with the Vigilant, she will
have to point higher than she did

Stories of Great xaick-
Captain Ben Ferguson, collector on the
ferryboat Hite, is always reminiscent.
The other day the captain said to me:
"You seldom hear of a man making
$90,000 in one night'in these days, bnt I
know of such an instance. Mr. Cole
man, who ran a foundry on Washington
street, near Brook, did it. In relating it
to me bo exhibited no delight whatever.
His words were: 'Captain, I made $90,
--000 last night; went to bed early and
slept soundly. You know the price of
iron went up, and fortunately I had
enough on hand, which I had purchased
at a low figure, to net me a fortune.' As
Captain Ferguson concluded the story
he told another of how Dennis Long
made §200,000 because the price of iron
dropped out of sight. It was just at a
time when Mr. Long had failed in busi
ness and told Captain Ferguson that he
was $400,000 in debt.
"WeU," saidthocaptain, "Dennis Long
went up to Indianapolis to bid on the
construction of tlie city waterworks.
There was but one other bidder, and
Mr. Long /;as awarded the contract.
Not long after iron began fluctuating,
and Long's estimate having been made
on the basis that iron would advance
still more in price, it already being high
at the time, ho of course found that as
it decreased he was reaping a golden
harvest. Woll, iron went down and
down. When it stopped, it was worth
hardly anything. Mr. Long, as I said,
made $200,000 by this, and he's been
making money ever since."—Louisville
Rats Are Great Travelers.
Rats do not, as one would suppose, re
main on the ship, but get off at various
ports, and after remaining a while ship
on some other vessel for another voyage.
Tho water rats or wharf rats are great
travelers and make frequent voyages
around the lakes and even around
the wprld—the latter as I discovered
while engaged In West India service.
There are here now rats from almost
every part of the globe. Why, I saw
four colossal Jamaica rats, with their
white bellies, skipping abont in the moon
light a few weeks ago, and only yester
day I killed two Indian male rats not
200 feet from where we were standing.
Rats are great climbers when they
find it necessary to be so. Upon one of
my voyages not long ago we had a long
spell of warm weather, and there was
no water in the hold which tho small
army of rats on board could get at. One
night we put some water up at the cross
trees and waited for the result. Well,
tho rats just swarmed up the ratlines
and went for tbe water. We killed as
many of tliein as wo could as tbey came
down, and some of them jumped over
board and were drowned. But we could
not kill them all, and a few made the
entiro voyago with us.—lnterview in

European Anarchists Fully
By the Ascoclated Press.
Bakcaxona, Sept. 29.— The court
martial of Pallae, who attempted to as
sassinate General Campos commenced
today. He said in answer to an inter
rogatory, that the charge against him is
true and that he wonld commit the
deed a hundred times if possible. He
had no accomplices and was only sorry
he failed ro kill Campos. Later in tbe
inquiry he became so insolent that the
president of the court-martial ordered
him removed from the room. Later he
was brought back to hear the address of
the prosecutor who demanded in the
name of outraged society, that the pris
oner be shot. Pallas jumped up and
ehonted that he agreed with tbe prose
cutor. Counsel for the defense appealed
for clemency, saying tbe prisoner's mind
was unhinged by demoralizing litera
ture and evil companion*. Pallas will
be sentenced tomorrow.

The arrest of Senator Prieto, editor of
El Ideal, an advanced Republican paper
in Madrid and formerly an officer in the
Spanish army, who is charged with
complicity in the attempt to blow up

sensation here as well as in Madrid,
where he resided.
AN INTERNATIONAL PLOT.
American and European Cities Alike
Threatened by Anarehtata.
Washington, Sept. 29.—When shown
a cablegram from Vienna regarding an
archist plots there, a well-known Chi
cago official, now in the city, said it is
well known to the Chicago secret service
police that tbe anarchists of Vienna,
Paris and London are in conetant com
munication with those of Chicago
and New York. He declared that
a plot similar to that in Vi
enna was nneartbed in Chicago,
by the police there, a year and a half
ago, bnt nothing was said about it
for fear of creating a scare and injuring
the world's fair. Tbe Reds were ar
ranging to blow up the city hall and
several building in course of construc
tion at the world's fair grounds. Super
intendent of Police McClaughrey by
vigorous action nipped tbe plot in the
bud. Detectives attended a number of
anarchist meeting in Claibourne
avenue and West Lake street.
At tbe latter, a woman fanatic volun
teered to enter the council chamber
when tbe city council was in session and
explode a bomb among them. She said
she was willing to sacrifice her own life
for tbe good of tbe cause. At the Clai
bourne avenue meeting arrangements
were being made to blow no tbe
world's fair buildings. Superintendent
McClauebrey had a number
of tbe leaders brought to his office. He
told them if any dynamite was thrown
he wonld pay little attention to the
fanatical underlings, bnt would arrest
every leader and agitator, and they
would take part in the biggest hanging
that ever occurred in Chicago. This
plain talk had the desired effect and the
Reds became less active.
Among the information gathered then
were letters from Anarchists of Paris
which led to the discovery of the bombs
nsed by Ravacbal in the Rue Clichy,
Paris, explosion, which were furnished
by Chicago Anarchists.
Major McCloughrey opened com
munication with tbe prefect of police of
Paris, Superintendent of Police Byrnes
of New York and Scotland yard, Lon
don, with the result that a compact was
formed that each should keep the others
posted as to tbe movements of the
reds in their respective cities, whenever
one went from one to the other. Through
this compact Major McCloughrey was
notified of the fact that Prince Krapot
kine, a Russian Anarchist, residing in
London, had arranged to come to
Chicago and was enabled to prevent it.
Anarchists threatened to blow up the
residence of Hempstead Washburne,
then mayor, and he had detectives con
cealed about bis house for months.
EXCITEMENT IN VIENNA.
The City In Fever Heat Over the An
Vienna, Sept. 29.—Excitement over
the discovery of the anarchist plot is still
at fever heat. Four anarchist working
men were arrested today. More arrests
are hourly expected. A large number
of those known to be connected with an
archistic societies hastily left the city.
All the public buildings are carefully
guarded by poliice. The precautions
will be continued as long as parlia
ment is in session. The police are in pos
session of facts of interest to the po
lice of several European capitals, as well
as Chicago and New York. They decline
to divulge the particulars, but it is
Known they have established beyond
doubt tbe connection between the Aus
trian plotters and the anarchists af Chi
cago and New York.
