Several Interesting Addresses Made. Lengthy Session of the Resolutions Committee. Vlewa of the Majority and Minority Sob mlttsd—at Hot Dlsoaaaiou Husoes. Neither Rapurk Adopted. By tho Associated Press. Dbnver, Sept. 7.—The attendance at the irrigation congress today was smaller than heretofore, some delegates having already left for home. The chairman announced that the committee on resolutions would not be ready to report nntil 2 o'clock. This raised a storm of protests. On motion of Joel Shoemaker of Utah, a committee was appointed to wait on the committee en resolutions and demand a report st once. While waiting for the report, Thomas Cutler of Utah read a paper on Beet Sugar Culture, after which Sefiar Ybe rolla of Mexico spoke on tbe necessity of having an international water commis sion to settle disputes between Mexico and the United States regarding water privileges. David Boyd of Greeley, Colo., read a I paper on The Nature and Behavior of tbe Platte River. Judge Emery of Kansas, national lec turer of the congress, spoke on The Trne Significance ot the Irrigation Movement in Regard to Arid Lands. "The arid section of the United States : is over one-half of the nosßeesions of the government, not including Alaska. This section," he said, "has not over 5,000, --000 popnlation. The greater portion of this vast tract can be irrigated, and il reclaimed will provide for 75,000,000 people." Uo denounced the letter of Secretary Morton to this congress in which he said, "Tbeee meetings have nothing to do with practical irrigation," aa utterly untrue. Judge Emery advocated small farms aud Btoruge reservoirs and an irrigation survey for the purpose of discovering and distributing tho water of the coun try for irrigation purposes. The congress then took a recess until 8 o'clock. Immediately upon reassembling, the committee on resolutions submitted a majority and minority report. The majority report was as folluwB: The national executive committee of the irrigation congress ia hereby in structed to prepare a Beries of bills for preseniati' to tbe congress of the United Statea, embodying the following propositions: Eirat—Repeal of the deeert land law. Second —Withdrawal from settlement of all arid lands within the arid region not found to be capable of irrigation, all such lands, except mineral lands, to he held for catchment areas, pasturage and timber. Third—Leasing the pasturage lande, giving preference to actual occupants I and cultivators of adjoining irrigable I lnnds, and the sale of surplus timber, j the proceeds arising from ouch Boureea to be devoted to the development of a water supply for irrigation within the : Btato, aud when no longer requirod for I sueb purposes, to belong to the etnie. Fourth —That the states be permitted to seleot lands for reclamation and make 1 themthe basis of security for the con | etrcction of irrigation works ; title to | riich land to remain in tbe federal g)V --j ernment nntil ench time aa it ehall have j passed through the state to the actual ' settlers, no one individual being per mitted to acquire title to more than 40 | acres of irrlgatnd land, except in asse ;of lande where the local conditions , necessitate the enlargement of the home : unit, because of the small value of the crops produced; the money received from such sources to be reaerved for tbe purpose of discharging obligations in curred in tbe work of reclaiming public laudo. Thia recommendation ia inde pendent of the Carey law, and ia not in tended to conflict with, or modify, tbe provisions of that law. Fifth—That when any state ahall have -eclsimed laud under the plan provided ! in section 5 itehall form irrigation divia iona according to the bydrograpbic divisions, and when a sufficient number of p.ettlere shall have actually located upon the land within such division the state ahull, conditionally, turn over the land administration to the authorities of eaid water division. Sixih —Tbat before any state can avail ittielf of these provisions it shall have v legally constituted Btate irriga tion department. That there shall, bo appointed a national irrigation commis sion, vested with the administration of government, paetoral and forest lande,of auch irrigation works aa may be under taken under federal authority, and bo empowered to consider and authorize general plans of reclamation submitted by theirrigiuiondepartmentof any etate. The national irrigational commission ! shall ulbo be charged with tbe work of ' making an immediate investigation of the problem of interstate streams and report to the congress oi the United Statea, as early as possible, a measure providing a means for the speedy and final adjudication of the queations bo tween Btates and a plan for the division of streams on a baßis of justice and equity. Seventh—That the several territories be included in tbe provisions of tbe Carey law. Eighth—That an international com mission be constituted, composed of rep resentatives of the United States, Cana da and Mexico, whose purpoae it ahall be to thoroughly examine into and arbi trate questions arising between said nations because of the waters of rivers partly in each of the two countries, or serving aB a boundary between two, and to settle upon a basis and method for thu equitable division uf tbe waters of such streams when used for irrigation. Ninth —That sufficient appropriations be secured for carrying on the work of gauging streams, selecting and segregat ing reaervoirs, and for prosecuting Biir veys to determine the location of lands susceptible of reclamation, and such other work in the line of investigation and experiment aa may be legitimately undertaken, such appropriations to be expended under the diroction of tbe national irrigation commission. Tenth—That reservoir sites heretofore reserved by tbe government, which may become necessary for the uae of states under the operations of the Carey law, shall be released and made available upon application therefor by statea or territories. The minority report favored the own erahip by the several states of the arid lands witbin their respective territories, and mentioned conditions upon which ownership ia to be acquired. Tbe entire evening session was devoted to the discussion of the reports, and at 11 o'clock further discussion was post poned until tomorrow morning. Tlie KZ ET A CASK. Mora Erldence Tuk«n In the Extradition Proceedings., San Fkancisco, Sept. 7.—The extradi tion proceedings in the cases of Gen. Antonio Kzeta and his fellow refugees from San Salvador were continned today iv the United States district court. The testimony adduced, however, was but a repetition of tbat of yesterday, the pris oners continuing to testify in their own behalf to substantiate their claim that at the time of the commieaion of tbe acta charged against them a state of war ex isted in San Balvador nnd that the al leged murders and robberiea were but incidenta of actual warfare. A pamphlet containing the military laws of San Sal vador was introduced in evidence thin afternoon, after bitter opposition on the part of the proneoulion. Under the laws the defendants claim to have been justi fied in their every act. KELLY DID NOT APPEAR BUT POPPER WAS THERE WITH HIS BOOKS. Tile San Francisco Grand Jury Investl fating- the Alleged Bribery of Su pervisors—All tli* Bosses Bnbpeeaaad. San Francisco, Sspt. 7.—The connty grand jarjr is investigating tbe charges recently mad* by A. J. Clunie agaiuet Max Popper, Christopher Buckley and Joseph Kelly. Democratic candidate for election to congress, in relation to the alleged bribing of supervisors in order to control atreet sweeping contracts. Popper appeared early in the ante room of the jury chamber, lie brought several heavy volumes containing the ontrieß relating to hia street sweeping business and said that he was prepared to submit them to the jury and answer every question th i might be pro pounded. He said Us was disappointed because he had learned tbat neither Joseph Kelly nor hia other partner, Christopher Buckley, bad been sub pcciaed. This statement was contradicted by District Attorney Barnoa who aaid that aiibprcnas bad been issued for all peo ple who were believed to possess informa tion that might throw any ligbt on the transactions by which monoy had been, as alleged, transferred from the street sweeping firm of Crimmins & Kelly for transmission to public officials. Tho grand jurors were slow in making their appearance and it was long after 2 o'clock before they gave any signs of beginning the investigation. Popper was the first witness called by the grand jury. He took his booka into the jury room. After he had been under examination for some time he waa ex cused and A. J. Clunie was called. When ho came from the room Popper waß re called. Joseph P. Kelly, at whose request the grand jury ie conducting the investiga tion, failed to appear, although he had promised to be on hand and prove hia innocence of the chargoa that he had paid out money to bribe the supervisors. Martin Kelly was there waiting to be called as a witness, but he was not wanted today. Chris Buckley is at his Liverniore ranch, and Phil Crimmlns is in Sacramento. THE lIBUUOTH BROKEN.

OFFICIALS' TRIAL. Debs et al. Again Appear in Court. The Reading of Telegrams Concluded. Pointed Observations Made by Judge Woods. Interstate Commeroe Applies tn Street Cars ana the Union Stock Yards-Strike and Labor Notes. By the Associated Press. Chicago, Sept. 7.—The examination of the railway atrikers waa begun today in tbe trial of the A. K. U. officials. Switchman Kreiger of the Chicago, Mil waukee and St. Paul testified that Con McAulitTe, head of tbe Milwaukee A. R. 11.,I 1 ., had come to him with a request from Pebs that all the Milwsnkee railway men strike. "McAuliffe said Debs was sure we would win," witness said, "and urged ns to go out. I replied that if we could be assured tbat our places would be secure if the strike were lost we wonld Btrike. Not many went out, how ever." A fireman on the St. Panl road teati- | fled that he had lait hia place becaaae oi intimidation. William A. Henry, a switchman in the employ of the Illinois, Indiana & lowa, waa one of the most important witnesßea ollered by tbe government, be cause he .had personally received a tele gram ordering bim to call out tbe men. Mr. Irwin objected to the testimony, be cause it concerned a road not included in tbe injunction, but the court decided to admit the evidence, as possibly throwing light on the intentions of the respondent. Witnesß produced several telegrams he received at Kaukakee, iigned by E. V. Ueba. The tirst, re ceived July Ist, read: "Adopt measures to get Big Four out. Promise protection to all whether menibeis or not. Adopt good cammittea aud wire name chair man." In the afternoon proceedings of the Deba case yesterday, Attorney liregory, for the defenae. raised the point that the power of the court was restricted to the dietrict in which it waa sitting, and, therefore, it could not puniah Deba for something violative of tbe injunction committed by some other party in Cali fornia. "I do not know why," replied Judge Woods. "I rather ttiink if a man ad vises a crime in New York, and it ie committed in Indiana, he may be pun ished in either district." The value of tbe telegrams sent cut about the time the boycott began was, Mr. M iller conEidcred, that they proved that tho employes ot the Santa Fe Bya tem quit work on Deba' orders, as ex pressed in the message. Attorney Walker announced that the ! government had introduced all the tele grams it wiehed to, and the witness wae turned over to Attorney Miller of the Santa Fe. The Santa l'e's attorney in troduced a number of as evi dence. Ii tho healing today Judge Woods 1 expreeeed the opinion that street car j lines cxa bo considered engaged iv inter j state commerce, persons en j route to railway stations to take trains j for distant points ride on them. He also declared the business of the Union stock yards interstate. At the afternoon session several wit nesses tnok the stand aud lestilkd to I acte of violence committed ar vurioua j pt n s during tho continuance ot the strike. Their evidence was strenuously objectsd to by the defense, but finally admitted. Cornice Workers Locked Out. Chicago, Bept. 7.—Tne Cornice Man ufacturers' aßsocaition declared a lookout against their employees who belong the Cornice Workers' union. The lockout resulted from the onion declining to de clare off a strike in the shop of Contractor Rheinebart.

And the Latter Emphatically Condemns It. Both Speak at a Democratic Gaily at Atlanta. Crlf p Ravlews tha Work of tha Fifty* Third Congrreae—Smith h.n<iai;o.l tha Fat Thaorloa of tho Populteta. „ By the A»»ociet«cl Preai. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 7.—A raaiv mist ing of Democrats was held in this city thie evening. Tbe principal foutarai were tbe speeches of Speaker Crisp re viewing tbe work of oongress and of Sec retary Hoke Smith against the free coin age of silver. Crisp declared his per sonal preference for tbe free coinage of silver, linen enthusiasm was dis played. Crirjp, after reviewing tbo work ol congreee. said: "A law end a practice which allows a oitizen to pay hie obliga tions to tbe government in silver, and at the same time permits him to demand of the government gold in redemption ot its obligations, ia manifestly unreason able and unjust, and in tbe nature of tbe case must impair contidence an<i tend to produce panic. "A protective tariff fosters and builds up trusts and monopolies, It creates no wealth, only prevents its natural and just distribution. Thirty years of such a system did much to produce the con ditions existing when the fifty-third congress met. What bas that congress done for the people? The first matter considered was the financial question. We bad pledged ourselves against the makeahifty Sherman law, and in favor of both gold and silver as the atandard money of the country. ?.v an agree ment arrived at between the Democrats, we determined to take tbe sense of tbe house on tbe free and unlimited coin age of silver at several ratios. After full debate a square vote was had on each and the repeal of tbe purchasing clause of tbe fjherman act. "While not professing to understand the question fully in all its bearings, I havo always been in favor of the free coinage of silver. I am in favor of it now." The speaker then rehearsed the con test in both branches of cougreos over the tariff bill, aud compared the differ ences between the McKinley and Wiison bills. Speaking of the senate bill, he said that while it did not give all be expected, it was the best that conld be obtained under the circumstances. "It strikes at trusts and monopolies." he said. "It reduces the cost of the necessaries of life. It to soma extent opens our markets ut borne and enlarges our markets abroad. It promotes agri culture, it encourages manufacturing and it will add to the comfort of millions of our fellow citizens." Here Mr. Crisp turned to state matter* and spoke of the commercial interests. Opening bis remarks, Secretary Smith reviewed tbe financial troubles of tbe past 18 months and congratulated tha south, as well as Georgia, upon the ex cellent showing made. The attention of the commercial world had been at tracted, and be predicted for that sec tion a period of development and marked prosperity such ac it never before ex perienced. '1 he cotton statea and inter national exposition would prove of great assistance in thia work, but tbe attention of capital once secured, ita confidence must aleo be won, and it was, therefore, of the utmost importance to the future welfare of the state that in the coming election tbe people of Georgia should show the world that the wild theories of the Populists bad no foothold amongst them. Calling attention to the recent expe rience of the great statea of Kaunas aud Colorado under Pooulistie rule, the sec retary asked who would like to sea Georgia follow in tbe leadership of a Llewelling or a Waite. Bad as was the record of the third party in the west, the crazy theories of their leaders in congresa were enough to stagger com prehension and shock thoughtful men. They sought disbursements amounting ia the aggregate to over $25,000,000,000. Tha people oi Georgia could not afford to endorse euch a party. The etate would bo disorganized locally and discredited before tbe world, if it appeared to bave even listened to tbeir impracticable theories. Few of their beliefs were worthy of discussion ; but there was on* which seemed to have appeared attract ive, although when carefully investi gated it muet be classified witb their other theories as almoet equally wild and impracticable. He referred to ths free and unlimited coinage of Bilver at the ratio of Hi to 1 by the United States alone, and declared it to be a plan utterly at vaiiance with eound business principles and fraught with incalculable evil. He did not wish bis position mis understood. He wae a throrough bi metallism strong in his faith, aud no one could be more unalterably opposed to the adoption of a single gold stand ard. Such a course would bring about a contraction of the currency calculated to cripple the industries nud to ie=aea the demand for supplies. The in jury inflicted by a single stand ard currency had heen demon strated abroad, and tlie evil effects had been felt upon the products of thia conn try, raised for foreign consumption. He honeyed the evil effects would be less ened by preserving the present rcrctpi ta of the currency here; but »nere three-font the of the injury could not he reached, except by tha success of bi metallism iv tbe places of consumption. Currency in the United States had not been contracted, but on tlie contrary, tbe per capita today whs fSI. 10. as against an average oi $14.85 from i ,:■> to HWkV Tne secretary then doac-ib"- 1 Mm sight different kinds of rooaey now 'ned in this country, •.. o tuaiutainsd th*
