union was the parade of veterans In the

warmth but the sky was soon clouded over
again and a cold wind made it uncomfort

9UO a m was the hour set for starting
the parade and long before that time great
crowds had lined up against the wire cables
stretched outward along the sides of the
broad Pennsylvania avenue from the capi

formed at their headquarters and marched
to the positions assigned them on the diag
onal streets on each side of Pennsylvania
avenue beginning at the west front of the

spirit died away and left little behind but
a feeling of
In their grizzled locks and reminiscent
faces one could read a recognition of the
fact that it wns the last time that many of
them would see tbe national capital So it
was decided to mate the parade the great
est feature of the encampment knowing
that it was a coincidence which could never
be repeated

of the treasury building on a large covered
stand named in honor of Lincoln were
placed 800 school girls so arranged in red
white ana blue dresses as to produce a
living tttarspangled banner Farther

night announcing the death from cholera
and requesting tug tobesont immediately
to remove the body to Swinburne island
The boat did not come until 1 oclock this
morning and General Hamilton received no
response to tho telegram He is very in
dignant at what he terms Dr Jenkins dis
courtesy The feeling is growing that a
clash will sooner or later l take place
not so much between the fed

Dr Jenkins and exSurpeonGeneral
Hamilton Dr Jenkins has stated that he
thinks it very injudicious for Dr Hamilton I
to announce cholera in Camp Low unless
he had absolute proof which would only be
obtained by a bacteriological examination
General Hamilton said this afternoon
Dr Jenkins and I had no friction and
our meetings were always pleasant but
the result here shows tho state authorities

To Bingham County Republican Convention
Mr Chairman and Members
Regarding an explanation of our actions in
leaving the convention as productive of good
results to the vitality of the political party we
herewith hand you these resolutions signed by
sixteen delegates representing a Republican
constituency of 40 loyal RepUDlicau voters
FirstBe resolved by the delegation that
we claim the absolute right to name such aOl
cers as a voting precinct desires so long as they
do not conillctwith the mature and equaldis
tribution of the several officers of our county
SecondThat the action of the convention in
dicated that the personal rights of our dolega
Hnn nlh dfpdd ht thn i
ful treatment not only in claiming I our right to
indicate the best interests of t e party In our
own precinct but in the permission granted by
the chair to the audience to hurl infamous and
false accusations in the teethof one of our dele
gates when explaining our correct position
Third That we further regard the notion as
a preconcerted comblbation to force upon us
the nominee for state senator to thwart our
honat desires advance the material interest
of our party in the large constituency whuh
we represent
Fourth That we deplore the action of the
convention in supporting with an ev dnt
relish any man as an independent candidate
and regard such action as unpolitical und un
P hOur position is in our honest judg
ment that these resolutions aro indicative or
the careful and consuleiate judgment of tho
delegation from the Pocatello precincts as
voicing the ideas of tie best Republican strong
hold in ourcounty Signed
The convention however insisted on
putting Mills of Pocatello on the legislative
ticket but being one of the delegation he
positively declined Finally as an olive
branch the nomination was given George
North of Pocatello He was not present
but delegates stated after the convention
that under no circumstances would ho ac
J S Baker of Pocatello was nominated

informed your correspondent that he
would not even think of accepting Both

as Teton Basin the home of th i
present commissioner Breckenridge i
were loft out when the central
committee was made up The Pocatello II
delegates left town swearing vengeance on
the whole crowd and while the matter may
blow over to some extent enough bad blood
was engendered today to make the success
of the Republican ticket in this county
The spats between the delegates were
heartily enjoyed by the spectators and the
interference of outsiders oily added fuel
to the flames The ticket was completed
by the nomination of Dye North and

Annual Tax is levied te Supply It
MATOON III Sept 2OHon William M
Springer addressed a large audience her 1
today His speech was priHcipally in re
ply to that delivered by McKinlej at El
wood last week He said that during a
interval of nine months before starting th
increased rate provided In the MoKinley
bill there was an enormous increase of
importation of plates to let them into the 1 1
country at old rates aid sell them at In
creased rates I the McKinley bill had t
taken effect on tin plates Immediately on
its passage as i should have done the
government would have received over 10
000000 more revenue than it did from these
importation t People were compelled t
to buy at 1 supposed increased
price however and this 310000000
was a net profit to tinplate importers and
jobbers After working t their utmost
capacity for a time to meet the enormous 0
demand from the United States the Welsh 1
mills after June Ib91 were obliged to shut
down for a time in order for tie consump
tion to catch up with the production The
Republicans immediately set up the claim <
that the McKinley bill had caused the j
Welsh mills to shut down sad the industry
be transferred to this country Thus his
tory and facts were perverted to deceive
our people
Congressman Springer further said that
the manufacture of tin plates in this coun 1
try was conceeded by all to be an unprofit
able industry which cannot exist without <
government bounty or a high protect l
ive tariff Either the government
or the consumers of tin plate
must pay 310000000 every yeai more ttiaa
otherwise required In order to have our
annual supply of tin plates made here The
report of the government agent for the
fiscal year ended June last shows the out
put of tin and terne plates of this country
for that year to be 13240830 pounds This
is less than 2 per cent of the amount con
sumed in the same period We were told
when the McKinley bill was pending that
within one year from its passage we would
make hero all the plates we could consume
According to the official report only about
a quarter the amount produced here was
tin plates The other threetourtbs were
terne plates which were coated with lead
and tin and used for roofing purposes only
and even this meagre output of less than U
per cent was not altogether an American
Springer went pn to state that the impor
tation of steel sheets or black plates
used in manufacture of tin plates since
the passage of the McKinley bill began to
increase almost correspondingly with the
increased production of tin and tome
plates An agent of the treasury depart
ment claimed that for the last quarter of
the last fiscal year 5000000 pounds of black
plates were made in the United States but
where it was made and whether used in
the manufacture of tin plates doesnt ap
pear But It does appear that the importa
tions for that quarter wore over lone
million pounds and from this it is appar
ent that the greater amount of tin and
tome plates produced in the United
States was made by using imported
black plates The part performed
In America in a large measure was a mere
dipping process of the metals mostly im
ported It was stated in a circular recently
issued by the Taylor company of Philadel
phia that by using the latest improved
Welsh dipping pot two boys can din
seventy boxes of tin daily If this is true
twelve boys by working ten entire year
could have dipped the entire American
production of the fiscal year and at the
same ratio it would only require 642 boys
to dip the entire amount required in the
United States Neither dipping boys nor
men who box plates are skilled
laborers and are hired rat the low
est prices for unskilled labor
but no matter how many persons engaged
in the industry here the past year it is
evident that the American people who are
subjected to a tax of sixteen millions a year
for building up a tm plate industry paid
very dear for the luxury
Springer asserted that it was not In
tended to build UD a bona fide tin elate in
dustry in the country The increased rate
was largely lobbied through by the Amer
ican Corrugated Roofing company which
wished to drive tin roofers out of the field
and has succeeded
The Democratic party If clothed with
power by the people will speedily put an
end to this political partnersnip with
private enterprise asd restore the duty on
tin plate to 1 cent a pound or put it on the
free list
