Compromise Democrats Receive
But Little Encouragement
MR YOOREEES POSITION
Republican Senators Say they Will
Tight the Compromise
Tho Bellicose Attitude of the Republicans
Has Disheartened the Democratic
Repealers and Compelled the
Compromisers to Halt
WASHINGTON Sept 30Leading Dem
scratic senators who have been trying for
the last fortyeight hours to arrange
terms acceptable to a compromise on the
silver question encountered a very de
termined obstacle today when they ap
proached the Republican antisilver men
who thus far have been acting with the
Democratic repeal forces
The Republicans simply declare there
Is no common ground upon which they
could act with the Democrats any longer
i unconditional repeal is to be aban
doned When it came to negotiating for
terms with silver they announced their
intention of flocking by themselves and
declared they were ready to fight the
compromise to a finish This bellicose
attitude of the Republicans disheartened
the Democratic repealers and compelled
the compromibers to hal temporarily at
least
leastenator
Senator Voorhess is in no way con
nected with the compromise movement
He said today he had no reason to despair
of the passage of the repeal bill in its
original form and thought it quite
ridiculous to conclude that in a body of
eightyfive a majority of fifteen could not
secure a vote upon any given proposition
He said he felt convinced that the major
ity could hold out as long as the minority
I said be we cannot pass the bill
this fall we can continue an efTort dur
ing the winter and i we do nof conclude
our work in the fall winter and spring
we can like Grant fight it out on that
line i it takes all summer I J could
force a vote 1 should of course do so
4 but there is no rule whereby I can do
that I am satisfied however if we hold
on with sufficient persistence we will
get it in time

mittee

SILVElt SENATORS OBJECT
The Terms of the Proposed Compromise
Are not Satisfactory
WASHINGTON Sept 30Many silver
men are not favorably impressed with the
proposition of the enemies of silver for a
compromise They especially object to
the proposal to issue 200000000 of bonds
to build up the gold reserve and this
probably will have to be modified
Many also think the proposition to
JT purchase 2000000 of silver is too small
and are inclined to take chances of de
feating the repeal bill rather than submit
to it
It is understood further that efforts will
be made to reach a compromise and
many senators speak hopefully of reach
ing a settlement on some basis

HARDIN HAKES A CONFESSION I
The Contralia Train Robbery Planned i
Three Months Ago
CENTRALIA Ills Sept 30 Hardin
the last of the Ceutralia gang of train
robbers who was captured last night in
Cincinnati was taken from Detective
Smith at Odin this afternoon by Sheriff
Helm on a state warrant while being
conveyed to St Louis on the Ohio Mis
sissippi train The detective was unwil
ling to surrender his prisoner but he had
no paper on which to hold him and he
was conveyed to the Salem jail where his
pals Jones and ODwyer are confined
While the officers were disputing over
the possession of the prisoner some one
reported in the hearing of Hardin that
the news of his detention in Odin had
been telegraphed to Centralia and SOO
railroad men were en route on a special
train to lynch him
This completely unnerved the bandit
and he begged the officers to hurry him
off to jail He then made a full confes
sion of the robbery Thee were three
oi us implicated Jones ODwyer and
myself he said The robbery was
planned at 1313 Choteau avenue St Louis
over three months ago Jones was too
drunk t play his part well He held up
the engineer and fireman before ODwyer
and I were ready to attack the car and
our plans were thrown into confusion
When we entered the car I found myself
in the grasp of Baggageman Armstrong
I saw a man coming into the car with a
gun and supposed we had been trapped
From that moment my sole object was to
get out of the car 1 endeavored to keep
Armstrong between myself and the shot
gun and did so pretty successfully until
I impulsively reached for the bell cord to
stop the train I was then Saunders shot
me in the arm The shooting filled the
car full of smoke and I managed to jump
out at the east door ODwyer was a few
feet ahead of me We both landed out
side about the same time
We ran east until we reached
ODwyers house where he stopped I
passed on in a circuitous route until I re
turned to the Illinois Central track
nearly a mile from where we held up the
train My arm was paining me fear
fully and I crawled into a culvert and
laid down While I lay there a wild en
gine bound for St Louis on the Air Line
pulled up to the depot and stopped
While the engineer and firemen were in
the telegraph office I crawled out and
secreted myself on the engine on which I
rode into St Louis I went directly to
Mrs Kays about 7 oclock in the morn
ing after the robbery I kept myself
secreted during the day in the vicinity of
the Relay depot in East St Louis and at
7 p tt on September I boarded an
Ohio Mississippi train and rode to Cin
cinnati No one on the train suspected me
I have friends in Cincinnati and went
direct to the City hospital after resting
up a little and had my arm dressed I
registered under the name of Kay I
have been reading the papers regularly
and supposed the detectives were search
ing forme in Missouri and Indiana I
was this that caused me to be off my
guard when I was arrested I think it
was the description of my wound given
to the press by the St Louis woman that
caused the City hospital authorities to
identify me and give me away
The bandits arm is in no means a bad
condition and he can use it freely
Hardin told the officers that he left a
Colts revolver in the culvert where he
rested the night of the holdup and they
could have the weapon

The Elections Law Is Hurtful
and Oppressive
PAETIAL SUFFiUGB TALK
Had Lincoln Lived There lYond Have
Been Peace and Prosperity
The Law Was Passed with the Idea That
the South Was jJIerelly a Conquered
Territory Very Warm
Debate
WASHINGTON Sept SOIn the House
the Committee on Appropriations pre
sented for immediate consideration a bill
to extend the time for the completion of
the eleventh census to June 30 1891
Passed
The debate on the bill to repeal the na
tional election laws was resumed
Patterson of Tennessee spoke in favor
of the measure He maintained that Pres
ident Lincoln went to his grave never
dreaming of a universal negro suffrage
and not a soldier who followed the fag of
the Union and fought its battles dreamed
of i during the war or immediately after
He declared that had Lincoln been per
mitted to live and carry out his policy
there would have been peace andpros
perity in the south Lincolns as
sassination made it possible for
the ambitious Republican leaders to
place their heels on the neck of the south
The reconetruction legislation was passed
on the theory that the sovereignty of the
states was gone and that the southern
states were a conquered territory Over
200000000 were heaped into the debt of
the southern states in a few years Ruin
devastation lawlessness frauds corrup
tion reigned supreme
Henderson of Iowa interrupted to
read a letter from an unnamed individual
in Tennessee declaring that in five
counties of that state wholesale fraud and
intimidation were practiced
Patterson replied by recounting the
history of the attempt in 18S3 to punish
election frauds called attention the
condition of affairs in the south before
the war when a man who would I
corrupt or spend money on elections
was dishonest 1 it has been other
wise in the south since the war the
origin must be looked for in these
election measures I the Republican
party had pushed the policy placed by
Lincoln in his letter to Governor Kent of
limited suffrage for the negro it would
have been vastly better for the negroes
and for every section of tho country
Prolonged Democratic applause
McCaul Republican Massachusets
followed in opposition
folowed opposion
McNagney of Indiana followed in sup
port of the measure He claimed the
whole question of federal supervision of
elections was hurtful and oppressive
Dewitt Warner of New York next
took the floor in support of the measure
I do not care to defend the
state of New Yorkn said he
1 against the slanders hurled at her from
every corner of this chamber by Repub
licans We welcome them The facts
are that New York city was the first to
adopt a model system registration elec
tion andcount The system is so perfect
that on the night of an election from one
end of the country to the other the re
sult in New Ybrk is known and accepted
We in New York city compelled the
county districts to accept the same scrut
iny at elections which we voluntary put
on ourselves years ago He went on to
refer contemptiously to Justice Wood
who had Warner said reversed himself
in order to keep Dudley out of jai and
prevent an official investigation of the
I Blocks of Five letter
I resent shouted Jackson of In
diana springing to his feet
Justice Woods decision was in ac
cordance with the law in the case
cse
I is neither law morals nor de
cency retorted Warner it was an
illegal decision to which Judge Woods
was driven by political necessity
Johnson sought to read the opinion of
Justice Harlan bearing on the case
Richards of Ohio then took the floor
and made a carefully prepared and force
ful argument against the constitutional
ity of the election laws I
At the conclusion of his speech Dock

CHANDLER AND THE PRESIDENT
The Senator Critices tho Matter Manner
of Alakiuc Appointments
WASHINGTON Sept 30Perkins Re
publican of California gave notice of an
amendment he intended to make to the
repeal bill He had carried out the sug
gestions made by him ins recent speech
The resolution offered yesterday by
Chandler of New Hampshire calling for
I information as to the commission inves
tigating the New York custom house
came up Chandler spoke in favor of its
adoption He said the object was after
ascertaining the facts to invoke i
necessary the action of Congres to pre
vent the appointment of officers or
nominal officers of the United States
without warrant of the constitution
and law contrary to the spirit of both
Chandler had read Appraiser Coopers
letter tendering his resignation because
of the treatment he received from the
hands of commission Chandler after
reading the reports from New York papers
touching the proceeding of the commis
sion to the effect that it was created in
order to make place for some antisnapper
Democrats in New York state called the
attention of Senator Hill especially to the
matter in order that he might tell the
Senate i he wanted to whether
any vacancies made by the com
mission had been filled by anti
snapper Democrats Chandler said
he was now supporting the president in
his efforts to secure the repeal of the sil
ver law but this would not deter him
from criticising a president whom he
thought was given too much to disregard
ing the provisions of expressed law and
to make a law unto himself and when he
had reached a determination to attempt
to carry it out whether he saw law for it
or not Chandler cited Clevelands ap
pointment in his former term without
the advice or consent of the Senate of
W L Putnam and J B Angel
commissioners to negotiate the
fisheries treaty with Great Britain
in violation of the constitution
Chandler referred to the message to the
Senate communicated to Governor
Northern of Georgia and said he was
struck with the justice of the criticism
he hal seen in a recentLondon paperthat
there was a singular resemblance between
the letters of President Cleveland and
those of Germany Coming totbe Hawaiian
an episode Chandler readifrom a letter of
president to the provisional government
ment of Hawaii the sentence CMay God
have your excellency in his wide keep
ing What a beneficent air of royalty
there is about that extension of
the good wishes of His Majesty
ir J
the President of the United
States said Chandler through his
Personal Commissioner Blount who has
paramount authority to the provisional
government of the Hawaiian Islands
Chandler said the appointment of Blount
was a more gross violation of the consti
tution than had occured in appointment
of officials in a hundred years It was
ofcals yeas
time the president and the heads of de
partments should be brought to rigid
observance of the constitution
The resolution was then agreed to and
the repeal bill laid before the Senate as
unfinished business and Camden Dem
ocrat of West Virginia spoke in advo
cacy of the bill
Peffer Populist of Kansas then re
sumed his argument against the repeal
bill begun on Thursday
The resolutions heretofore offered by
Dolph Republican of Oregon calling
for information as to the payment pen
sions to persons residing abroad was
taken up Dolph said there was either
great ignorance in the action of the pen
sion bureau or a premeditated deliber
ate design to thwart the will of Congress
and he cited the case of the widow ot
Commodore Watson whoso pension
granted by a special act of Congress was
suspended six months ago and she was
called upon to prove by living persons
an event which occurred thirtyfive years
ago The resolution was placed on the
calendar
Teller Republican of Colorado of
fered a resolution which went over call
ing for information as to the amount of
silver bullion purchased by the treasury

DEFECTS IN BRITISH WARSHIPS
The Victoria Disaster Has Its Effects in
Germany
BERLIN Sept30The recent agiation
in England in regard to the defects found
in British warships brought on mainly
by the disaster to the Victoria has found
an echo here I is suggested that the
British fleet would be more strengthened
by the audition of a large number of fast
cruisers with powerful rams and vessels
of a type smaller and less expensive than
the monster battle ships which seem to
find so much favor with British ship
builders In this country the reported
increase in the naval estimate has caused
much dissatisfaction among the Radicals
and Liberals who claim that Germany
does not need a strong navy or an addi
tion to her army Ship building experts
in Germany have followed closely the
criticism made in England upon the
British war ship which recently met with
disaster and the German experts insist
that the present type of German war
ships is especially unsuited Germany
I is more than likely the government
vill meet with sound opposition in carry
ing out Emperor Williams project to in
crease the strength of the German navy

BIT OF A HINDY
How Irish Day Was Celebrated
in Chicago
HER FLAG HAULED DOWN
After Some Discussion I Again
Floats in the Breeze
The Natives of tho Quid Sod and Their
Descendents Have a Most Royal
Time Speeches by Dis
tinguished Men
CHICAGO Sept 30Irish day at the
Worlds fair began with a bit of a shindy
Chief Justice Barrett of the depart
ment of electricity is something of an
Irishman himself and caused the Irish
flag to be run up on the Electricity build
ing in honor of the occasion
Frank D Millet artist and war cor
respondent who has charge of the flags
and other color displays is not an Irish
man and he ordered one of his men to
haul the green flag down
The order was at once obeyed but the
colors were again run up by Barretts
orders
Then Chief Millet and his men appeared
and cut the halyards causing the flag to
fall at the feet of the crowd which had
gathered
Trouble seemed imminent and a com
psny exposition guards were dispatched
to tile scene to preserve order
Barrett says he ordered the flag run up
out of compliment of the day and the
many IrishAmericans on the ground
Millett says he ordered the flag down be
cause no flags were allowed on the staffs
of the exposition buildings except those
of the nations recognized as such
The matter was at once referred to
President Higginbotham for a decision
For the first time since last May has the
city experienced a really rainy day I
rained all last night and has rained all
day today The sky is leaden the ground
sodden the air cold and raw with a chill
wind irom tne soutneast A more oisa
greeable combination for what was ex
pected to be one of the great days of the
fair in points of attendance and general
liveliness could scarcely be imagined
Nothing could be done in the flag mat
ter as both President HIgginbotham
and DirectorGeneral Davis were absent
Some time ago the committee on arrange
ments for Irish day asked the council of
administration for permission to run nn
the flag and the matter was left in the
hands of the directorgeneral
After consultation with Millet it was
decided inadvisable to violate the stand
ing rule and not fly the flag of any except
independent nations
Hungary Poland and other nations
made similar requests which were re
fused on the ground of discourtesy to the
countries bywhich they are ruled
Later an appeal was made to the coun
cil administration and the green flag
was restored to the position tibove the
electricity building
In spite of the rain and the bad weather
Irish day was celebrated by a great military
tary and civic parade starting the west
end of the Midway Plaisance and passing
through that thoroughfare and the prin
cipal avenues of the White City After 1
the parade a crowded meeting was held
in Festival hall at which addresses were
delivered by Lord MayorShanks of DuD
lin Mayor Harrison of Chicago and
Hon John Finerty of Chicugo
Many churchmen and IrishAmerican
citizens were on hand
citzens
Lord Mayor Shanks received an en
thusiastic greeting when he entered the
hal He said in part after returning
thanks for the greeting and the felicitat
ing of the Irishmen for the position they
won in this country Your gathering
today will be historic You are here to
claimjyour own share in the honor and
credit of the great Columbian exposi
tion The speaker then dwelt in glow
ing terms upon the exposition and
I added Peace hath victories more re
I nowned than war That my countrymen
should have shown themselves so ready to
become useful and devoted citizens is a
testimony to their fitness as a selfgovern
lag race and I look with confidence to
the future in store for them
Archbishop Feenan followed and said
in part We have assembled here today
for twofold motives to do honor to a
magnificent piece of mens work and
also revive for today the hope and tradi
tions of the Irish people The arch
bishop pointed out at length what the
Irish had done for the church and thereby
for civilization
Edward Blake M P of Toronto
spoke of the Irish home rule maintain
ing that the Irish as a people are capable
of selfgovernment In closing he read
a letter from the English premier re
marking I asked ladstone to send
soma greeting to you and here i is
Gladstones letter which is dated Sep
tember 2 in opening expressed his
pleasure at the knowledge there was to
an Irish day during the fair and said it
could not be a more interesting or a more
encouraging occasion after seven
years close and sustained struggle
throughout the country The house of
commons elected last year passed
after eightytwo days debate the bill
conferring upon Ireland management
through a freely elected parliament of
her own domestic affairs and when at the
close of the next week the bill was re
jected by a large majority in the house of
lords it will mean no more harm than a
dilatory vote The distance actually
traveled over between physical misery and
nnliMonl rifinrpssinn which marked the
early u years of the century n and the victory
recorded last night was immeasurable
The distance between a recorded victory
and the final investment of Ire
land with selfgovernment and control
over her domestic affairs was not only
measurable but short Continuing
Gladstone said The recent success
was broughtaboutby I a change of onin
br9u
lon in Jimgnsn ocotcn irisn ana weisti
votes t
In closing Gladstone said Yet the
taste of the struggle still remains and
like former struggles it will be great and
will demand the friendly efforts of all
those who have lifted the great cause out 1
of the abyss and set it on an eminence
rom which there remains but a single
step into the promised land I cherish
the most sanguine hope that
the Irish nation when these great
objects have been attained will
fulfil every reasonable hope cherished by
those who have aided and will convert
the present enemies into friends

The Valkyrie Causes Great Admiration
in New York
N1W YORK Sept 30The Valkyrie
left anchorage a short time this afternoon
and went away at a rate of fully fifteen
miles an hoar without a sign of allowing
her lee scuppersto go under it It was the
best sight the yachtsmen had of the cut

mensely Captain Cranlield did nothing
that would allow the natives
to see how fast the ship could
travel so the treat was one that
furnished no ground for an estimate on
her speed Experts who have watched
the Valkyrie today said Vigilant must
be a better boat than the Volunteer to
beat the new challenger
