The Herald LOS ANGELES, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 19, 1894 A VARIETY OF SUBJECTS Touched on in Congressional Debate. Cleveland's Hawaiian Policy Discussed. Republicans Ridicnle the Van Alen Appointment. The Authorship of the Road Quorum Conatlng itule In OUpute—Sen ator Morrill Hsktl at Tariff Speech. By tbe Associated Press. Washington, April 18.—The house devoted the entire day to debate on the consular aud diplomatic appropriation . bills. It touched a wide variety of sub jects and at times was brimful of inter esting personalities. The Hawaiian policy of tbe present administration came in for a good share of attention The appointment of Van Alen as min ister to Italy provoked a very interesting discussion. It waa ridiculed by the Re publicans, who intimated that it was a direct reward for his $50,000 contribu tion to the Democratic campaign fnnd. Tbe Democrats in defending the ap pointment tried to counter ou the H • r rison administration by detailing tbe history of the $400,000 campaign fund raised by ex-Poeti. aster-General Wan amHker. Later in the day Mr. Wiee took up the authorship of tbe quorum counting as a parliamentary anil-fili bustering expedient, and quoted from tbe Record to show th.it the first propo sition in this line bad been offered by J. Randolph Tucker, a Virginia Democrat, in 1880, when it ha! beeu vigorously opposed by Mr. Reed. Mr. Walker of Massachusetts met this attack nn the ex-spi aker's name by shrieking out be fore tbe house the record of the Demo cratic opposition to the quorum-count ing rnle in tbe fifty-first congress, when Speaker Crisp led tne opposition. Before the bouse journal was approved Bunows (Rep.) of Michigan called at tention to tbe fact tbat Wheeler of Ala bama, who spoke exactly one minute on tbe new quorum-counting rule, had . r .nted iv tbe Record a speech which oc cupied fonr columns. As Wheeler was not present, it was decided to allow tbe matter to go over until be could speak for nimself. Donphy (Dem)of New York asked unanimous consent for the consideration .' the New York; and New Jersey bridge X lgore (Dem.) o! Texag seattfffraYW sarcastically that as tbe house now had rules by which it con Id transact business, he could not agree to any requests for unanicuwus consent. He demanded tbe regular order, which was equivalent to an objection. After tbe call of committees for reports the house went into committee of the whole, Mr. Bonier of Texas in the chair, for further consideration of the con sular and diplomatic appropriation bill. Mr. Grow (Rep.) of Pennsylvania took tbe floor and vigorously airaigned the Hawaiian policy of the administration. McCreary (Dem.) of Kentucky stated that inasmuch as the house bad dis cussed the Hawaiian matter for five days, and had adopted resolutions ex pressing the sense of the house, he re garded it as adjudicated. Hooker (Dem,) of Mississippi, a mem ber of tbe foreign affairs committee, fol lowed with a defense of the president's Hawaiian policy. "Is it still tbe purpose of the president to restore the queen?" staked Van Voor bis (Rep.) of New York. Hooker said that had been left to be decided by congress. Milliken (Rep.) of Maine replied to some of Hooker's strictures on ex-Min ister Stevens, in the oourse of whioh he predicted it would not be many years before tbe American flag would be raised over Hawaii, and under auspices that would insnre its remaining there. Coombs (Dem.) of New York made some praotical suggestions in advocacy of a complete reform of the consular ser vice in the interest of an extension of our foreign trade. Quigg, in the course of some remarks criticising the Van Alen appointment, got into a vernal duel with Enloe (Dem.) of Tennessee. He had, in reply to a question by Enloe, asserted that he was elected to congress last January because a chance had been afforded tbe Four teenth New York congressional district, with its 10,000 Democratic majority, to record an aye and nay vote on tbe Wil son bill. "Did yon accomplish what yon came here for?" asked Enloe; "Did yon kill the Wilson bill, as yon said you would in your campaign?" "I did not say I wonld," replied Quigg. "I said the election of a Repub lican in a Democratic district wonld do much toward defeating the Wilson bill, and I think it is smashed." "Perhaps you are the author of the speech against the Wilson bill deliv ered the other day by Senator Hill," soggested Enloe, sarcastically. "I had not that honor," replied Quigg. "We Republicans know he is able to take care of himself. He has done so frequently to our dismay and discomfiture, and, I thought, to your satisfaction." Meredith of Virginia and Enloe of Tennessee took a hand in the discussion of the Van Alen incident, using tbe Harrison appointment of Mr. Wana maker as an offset. ''Certain (acts have been develcped by this debate," interrupted Reed. "First, that Whitney is a great man; second, that Cleveland is a good man, and third, that Van Alen waa not ap pointed to office because he contrioated $50,000 to the Democratic campaign fund. Now, why was he appointed?" "If he had been appointed because of his contribution," said Enloe, "that would be the beet and strongest reason for his appointment from v Republicau standpoint. I know nothing of the facts, but I will say this in his defense he, at least, bad the decency not to in suit tho American people by accepting oflice, as did John Wanamaker." Cannon (Rep.) of Illinois, wbo fol lowed Enloe, waxed sarcastic. "I would not say anything," said he, "against that good and great man Gro ver Cleveland. If I dipped my tongue in gall I could not say anything as mean about him as tbe Democratic ie saying." Cannon created great amusement by telling how the Democratic national convention had prepared a platform, and how, afterward, "tbat great and good man" had written a letter modifying it. Turning to the Democratic side he asked: "Who is your prophet? Is it Grover, is it Walter Q. Gresham, or is it Hoke Smith?" "Give it op," ejaculated Barrows, amid crest laughter Cannon struck right and left. He re ferred to Bland as "the wild-eyed son of destiny from Missouri," and wanted to know why tbe Democrats, in choos ing men for the most responsible offices in the gift of the?- administration, were obliged t draft renegade Republicans or mugwumps. After Cannon had concluded, the de bare took a different direction. Wiee of Virginia delivered a spee'th in which be challenged Reeu to claim the credit for the idea of counting members to make a quorum. The originator of tbat idea, he asserted, was John Randolph Tucker of Virginia, wbo 14 years ago proposed a modification to tbe rules designed to take into account the presence ot mem bers in making up a quorum, but who refused to vote, but ou that occasion Reed, with great vehemence, denounced tbe proposition. He had urged that it was not tbe physical preseuce of a ma jority of the members wheh the consti tution had contemplated as a quorum, bnt a majority present and participat ing—a thlug, added Wise, sarcastically, whioh Thomas B. Reed has not done for a inouLb. "Did tbe Democratic congress in 1880 adopt Tucker's rule?" asked Gruavenor (Rep.) of Ohio. "The proposition wae withdrawn," re, .ied Wise, "I limply desire now to strip a leader of -he false colors under whioh be has been sailing." "We don't claim tbe adoption of the quorum-counting mle of yesterday was a triumph for the Democratic party," contiuned Wise. "We only claim that it was not a triumph for Mr. Reed and Republicanism. The attempt on your side to falsify history and your own Mr. Heed as a leader is making him, in the eight of his former declarations, ridicu lous." Walker (Rep.) of Massachusetts re plied to Wiee in a speech in which he cited at length the firm < position tbe quorom-counti.ig rule met troiu Speaker Crisp at the time of its adoptiou in the fifty-first congress. Grosvenor (Rep.) of Ohio concluded the debate for tbe day with some re marks about the manner in which the Wilson bill had been battered beyond '•SSCtiaftrnnisheri busily, and tbe committee rose and the bouse at 4:40 adjourned. SENATE PROCEEDINGS. The Venerabla ssaat»r Morrill Hakes • Tariff Speech. Washington, April 18.—In the senate, today, arising to a quesiion of privilege, Senator Coffey of Louisiana denied that he wag an obstructionist and not in harmony with tbe Democratic party. He should, he said, aotively support tbe tariff bill as amended by tbe senate finance committee: Petier's resolution for a eelect commit tee to receive petitions from Coxey went over for today. Gallinger of New Hampshire gave notice tbat he would speak on the tariff Friday and Palmer tnat be would Bpeak on the tariff next Tuesday. Tne venerable Senator Morrill of Vermont, who recently celebrated his 84tn birthday, and the Nestor of the senate, was recognized and was accorded more respectful attention tban has fallen to the lot of most speakers on the tariff question. In spite of his ad vanced age, ha spoke clearly, though evidently suffering Bomewhat from a cold. He expressed regret that the finan cial and industrial crieia should be con tinued by a vain-glorious attempt to carry out the Democratic platform. He made biting references to tbe trouble the Democrats made for themselves over tbe bill, and pointed out iteme on which tbey compromised with their principles. Concerning tbe rates re ported in tbe bill, he declared the senate nuance committee fixed then without the votes of tbe Republican members and against the votes of the Democratic minority ; co a tariff for revenue only proves to be "only a political tariff, void after tbe next election." A special evil of tbe bill, be thought, was the absolute ad valorem system. The reciprocity arrangements which benefit the farmer would be abrogated, and the income tax was an unusual blunder even for a Dem- ocratic administration to make. Shoulo tbe bill ever become a law be would re gret it, because of the calamities with which its chapters will'be ptegnant. Morrill after speaking 65 minutes concluded hie remarks at 2 :05 o'olock and immediately left tbe senate. Mills gave notice that on Tuesday next he would submit some remarks on the tariff. Inrpie (Dem.) of Indiana epoke in support of tbe tariff bill. He discussed tbe effect of a high tariff on tbe agricul tural interests. He introduced tbe topic by the assertion that agriculture waa a monopoly for America, owing to tbe cheapness of the laud, and it '.«bb from tbe farmera that tbe demand for repeal was loudest. After Turpie bad concluded, Senator Cameron of Pennsylvania took tbe floor in opposition to the bill. Following Cameron hie colleague, Quay continued ms epeech begun last Saturday, discussing the production of iron. At 5 o'clock, in accordance with the terms of agreement of last week, which was renewed yesterday, Quay suspended the second installment of hia speech. It is to be continued at a later day. Sherman gave notice that at 5 o'olock tomorrow he would ask tbe senate to listen to eulogies to the late Representa tive Euocli of Ohio. Harris then, at 5:10, moved an execu tive session; it wns agreed to, and at 0 o'clock the senate adjourned. BLOODSHED OVER WAGES. A Fatal Riot Just Outside Detroit. Officers Attacked by a Mob of Angry Poles. The Sheriff Horribly Beaten and Cut With Shovels. Some of the Deputies Also Injared—Two Laborers Killed and Hhy*t»l Fa tally Wounded—Many Arrested. By the A««oelateU Pres,. Detroit, April 18.—Wayne county's sheriff lies in a precarious condition tonight, his body lacerated by tbe shov els of infuriated men. Two laborers are dead and the number of victims is not yet definitely known. These unfortu nate conditions are the result of a con flict which occurrfcd at noon today be tween about 400 Pole, and Sheriff Colline and a number of bis deputies. The riot was brought about about by differences of opinion over wages to be paid laborers by tbe city water com mission for trenches for pipe laying in 11 r(">«e Point township, just east of the city limits. The commissioners decided to pay by tha cnoio yard, but for the past day or so 300 Poles had bung about the vicinity, leclaring they would not work nor allow others to work unless paid |1.50 per day. No outbreak was anticipated, but as a precaution Sheriff Collins and five dep utiee went to the scene to protect those who wished to work. Work progressed on a small scale during the morning, but Engineer Williams, becoming alarmed at the aspect of thingß, con sulted some of the commissioners short ly before noon and was instructed to quit work for tbe time being. Before he returned, however, rioting began. Sheriff Collins and Deputy Styskal, after telephoning for reinforcements, began to adirees the mob to pacify them. One of the Poles began an oppo sition harangue. The crowd thereupon started to annihilate the officers and tho bandiul of laborers at vtork. At tbe advance tbe officer* dre * revolvers and tired over tbe striae™' heads, but the mob came on and the next volley was discharged into the crowd. Then the officers retreated, slowly firing as they went. Still the mob followed, one man dealing tbe ther if a vicious blow on the head with bis shovel. Tne other officers, the laborers and a reporter eavuped, an ol ug mmo urmtj )>.,„,■.,.-.. with shovels, but the helpless sheriff was brutal'y attacked. The mob then scattered leaving the sheriff unconscious. Two of the Poles were found dead—John Pielat and a comrade, name unknown. Sheriff Collins regained consciousness shortly after 2 o'clock. He had a bad gash on the head, several cuts and bruises about the body and had almost bled to death from a lacerated leg. His pbysiciaus say tonight that he will prob ably pnil through. During the afternoon some 20 Poles were arrested, which intensified the bit terness and the situation is being dis cussed by orowda of Poles in various parts of the city. It ia rumored they will attack the jail tonight, but this is not believed. Extra officers are on doty to preserve the peace, whatever may happen. Many more arrests are ex pected, but it ia difficult to identify the leaders in tbe riot. The water company officials will not probably tecede from their position, but work will proceed, if at all. under a strong guard. Another shooting affray took place tbis evening in the rear of the municipal court building. A crowd of Poles bad congregated and Deputy Sheriff Borneman recognized one of them as one of the rioters. He started to him when some one in the the crowd fired a revolver, hitting the Pole in the lea:. At the hospital be gave the name of Tony Pabowski. Borneman could not learn wbo fired the shot. The complete list of the victims are: Dead: John Pielat and an unknown Pole. Wounded: Bheriff Collins, bad scalp wound in tbe back of the head; severe wound in the leg caused by a blow from a pickaxe; two cuts in the back, one in the left shoulder; many small bru'ees and cuts about the body. Anthony (iubschawik, shot in right thigh. William Bnrch, policeman, ribs frac tured end bruised on head. Joe Kobnskie, shot in ribs, will die. Levi Goweki, bullet wound in the knee. John KopperßSchmidt, bullet wonnds in arm and thigh; will probably die. George Catbery, severe ecalp wounds; two contused wounds in back and shoul der. Michael Kansfski. bullet wound in jar and left breast , will die. Andrew Boersig, slightly wounded. Joseph Rubin, two millets in thigh, — Alfred, slightly hurt. Unknown Pole, abdomen grazed by bullet. Anton Pawski, ehot in left leg, near tbe jail tonight. Andrew Eeki, shot twice in tbe abdo men, wounded in the neck. Jobn Russell Fisher, bruised on the back and shoulder. Wm. E. Finse, policeman, hurt about anus and head. Late tonight all is quiet. lt is doubtful whether the bureau of water commissioners will attempt to proceed with their work tomorrow. There wa<3 discussion of today's bloody fray among the workingmen of tbe city, in which developed the fact that a large element among tbem would be only too glad to start on the road for tbe purpose of avenging the attack on Sheriff Collins in case of another conflict, if for no other reason. The Tribune will editorially urge im mediate procedure with the job, as agamßt any appearance of compromise with the rioters. Leading Polanders tonight predict more trouble. Tonight's latest reports indicate tbat four ot the wounded will die. It is claimed anarchists urged the riot. THE STRIKE QUESTION. Indiana Coal Miliars Have It Under Ad visement. Brazil, Ind., April 18.—The block coal miners of tbis county met here to day to determine the advisability of joiuing the strike which takes place Saturday. Secretary J. L.

The miners are disinclined to do this, and no definite action was taken. The meeting ad journed until Friday, when a general meeting will be held for rendering a liual decision. NEGRO LABOR. The Cause of Trouble In Southern Goal Mines.

Indianapolis, April 18.— W. H. Cope tand, who yesterday shot Lawyer Harris and Litigant Bruning in the law office of Harrison, Miller & Elam, was arraigned in court today charged with shooting with intent to kill and carrying con cealed weapons.

Copeland was re leased on a $5000 bond, $2500 on each charge which was furnished by two friends. Copeland's wife arrived today and upon his eecuring bonds they went to the Grand hotel and are stopping there.

Hia A nor Batleu and Mncli Discouraged. Trials and Tribulations of the Various Indastrlul Reglmeuts. By the Associated Press. Colton, April 18.—"Guilty aa charg ed" waa the verdict rendered in the case of "Colonel" Vinette tonight. Vinette was arraigned iv Justice Bingham's court tills looming on the charge of at tempting to defraud the Southern Pacific Railroad company by evading payment ol fare. The jury was composed of the follow ing men : George Cooley, O. P. Fuller, J. P. Austin, D. C. Swartz. R. C. Deakin, J. M. Snodgrass, VV. W, Wilcox, D. Rob inson, R. J. Martin, George W. Frazer, E. 8. Colvin and George M. Hubbard, three of whom are said to have been favorable to Vinette. Tbe prosecution offered only three witnesses—Sheriff Booth, Marshal Mc- Oaullay and Agent Bright. The defense subpoenaed half the army but examined only about half a dozen. The citizens feel jubilant over the ver dict, while tbe members of the army are very sullen and say nothing as to their future movements. Vinette appears at 10 o'clock tomorrow for sentence, also for examination on the charge of inciting to riot. VINETTE'S TRIAL. Detail! of the Bearing on the Charge te Defraud, San Bernardino, April 18.—"Cap tain" Vinette, leader oi tbe army of tbe unemployed, waa taken out of the eouu ty jail and conveyed to Colton thii morning for trial upon the charge ol attempting to defraud tbe Southern Pa citio railroad of fare. W. A. Harris ol Log Angeles, special attorney of the Southern Pacific, and K. E. Bledsoe of this city represented tbe state and the defendant was represented by Attorney Luckel of Los Angeles. Ihe morning session was occupied by tha imnanediug of a iu*y- Nine, war* secured, when the original venire oi 24 wits exhausted. The court ordered a special venire of 10 to appear at 1:30 p. m. In the afternoon the panel of 12 jurors was completed. Sheriff Booth was sworn as the first witness for the prosecution. He testi fied that the army came to San Bernar dino and there attempted to negotiate with tbe Southern Pacific for transpor tation for the entire army to Deming, N. .VI., for $160. The oil -r being re fused by the railroad, the army walked to Colton on the 13tb inst. and the next morning the sheriff was called on to go to Colton, and there found a freight train sidttracked and 200 men on top of the cars. When asked to get off the men refused to do so, und Captain Vinette, with several other leaders, wai placed under arrest. The city marshal of Colton testified that he saw Vinette and his army on top of the cars, and tbat the men were asked to get off the oars, and when tbey refused he wet them down by attaching a hose to the city water works. Fred Bright, local agent of the rail road, testified that he saw tbe men come to Colton and he notified them not to get on the cars. Three officers of the road ordered the men to get off the cars, but they refused. The train was then run on a side track. Captain Vinette waa eworn ou bis own behalf, and testified that when the army left Han Bernardino they took a vote and decided to get on a Southern Pacific train at Colton and to stay there until put off; that he was the leader of the army, but the army decided ita ao tions on important questions by a vote. The army had only $150, which they had offered for transportation to Dom ing, but it was refused. He was on the cars, but was ready to be arrested, and it was one of tbe principles of tbe army not to resist arrest. The army is bound for Washington to influence congress to give employment to laborers and to issue $50,000,000 greenbacks. Vinette said he had served (no terms as justice of tbe peace in Colorado and had been postmaster at Granite, Colo., and ia a carpenter by trade. He eaid no one demanded car fare, but if it had been demanded be would have given $150 to take the army as far as it would go. He thought when the railroad offi cials found tbe men on the cars they would order the trainmen to take them along. Within an honr and a half after be ginning to take testimony the evidence was all in on both sides. The court room was crowded with spectators to listen to the arguments of connsel. The prosecution relied principally upon the testimony of Captain Vinette himself, and the arguments of Counsel Harris and Bledsoe for the prosecution were based principally upon his statements. The jury was urged in an eloquent ap peal to vindicate the law of tbe land, and demonstrate to lawless bands of men tramping through the country that they would be compelled to respect the law. Attorney Luckei consumed only abont 15 minutes In presenting the other side of tbe case to tbe jury, ciaing no public offense nad been committed ; that there could be no attempt to deiraud tbe rail way of fares when their agents had made no demaud. At 6:30 o'clock the jury retired and later the jury brought in a verdict of guilty ac charged. During the course of the trial the members of tbe army crowded the court and were interested spectators. They stiil number about 125 and declare they
