Debs Tells How They
. Are Being Crushed
by Capital.
Monopoly, He Says, Doles Out
Such Labor and Wages as
It Pleases.
AM This Is Wrongr, and Only a Co-
Operatlve Commonwealth Can

WOODSTOCK, 111., June 20.— Eugene V.
]vi>>. president of the American Railway
Union, who, with L. W. Rogers, William
E. Burns, Sylvester Kelliher, James Ho
gan, James Elliott and R. M. Goodwin,
directors of that organization, is serving a
six months' sentence for contempt of court
in the McHenry County Jail here, is enjoy
ing life as well as a prisoner can.
When a representative of the Call vis
ited him Debs looked a trine thinner than
he was a few weeks ago, but indoor life has
not yet begun to tell on his ruddy cheek.
He was comfortably attired in negligee
costume, as were all the other prisoners.
Life in the prison is not irksome to Debs
and his companions, for every moment is
occupied. All are deeply interested in the
study of economic questions and text-books
on these subjects are constantly in use.
When asked for an expression of his views
on the labor problem* Mr. Debs said:
"The trend of the times is toward capi
talization, toward centralization of every
thing, and when each branch of industry
is controlled by a trust that monopoly doles
out such waces as it pleases and exacts
such prices for its product as it pleases.
AH this is wrong, and only a co-operative
commonwealth can right it. In this coun
try we have no longer a republic, no longer
a Congress. If the Congress places upon
the statute-books a law inimical to the in
terests of the allied money power of capi
tal it is wiped out by the Supreme Court.
•' What is the Supreme Court? Nine gen
tlemen who owe their appointment to cor
poration influence, seven of whom are cor
poration lawyer?, men whose lives have
been spent in the service of corporations,
whose affiliations and sympathies are all
with the corporations. Is there the
slightest chance that they would decide
any question in favor of the workingman.
in favor of a class from which they turn
with disgust and which might as well be
on another planet for all they know of its
struggles and ambitions? Events have
proven that such hope is futile and that
the money power, capital which is daily
and hourly growing more centralized, al
ready supersedes every department of the
Government ana has the country by the
"Every day more men are forced out of
work by machinery. The machinery pro
duces what they formerly did, but the
men remain to be provided for, and every
year it is growing worse. Just so long as
all that machinery ami everything it pro
duces are controlled by monopoly the
workingraan will stand begging for em
ployment at the door of the trusts. The
country has outgrown the wage system;
but the men are still here, clamoring for
the work which machinery deprives them
of, and capital, controlling the machinery
and its p/oduct, holds the upper hand.
The way out is a question too large for me
to handle; but toward the co-operative
commonwealth, ;the solution of this prob
lem of the day, all my energies shall be
Carlisle's Secretary to Travel at Vvcle

WASHINGTON, D. C, June 20.-H. \V.
Vanseden, Carlisle's private secretary, was
anxious to make a trip to California, ac
companied by a member of his family, but
railroad transportation being difficult to
secure, Uncle Sam discovered that an in
spector should examine into the condition
of the mints out there. Consequently Mr.
Vansenden will make his trip at the Gov
ernment's expense. He will leave in a few
days for San Francisco.

The Aeu? Line Steamer Will Leave Sew
Orleans To- Morrow.
NEW ORLEANS, La., June 20.— The
steamship Oteri of the new line from New
Orleans to Colon, intended to compete for
California trade, will leave Saturday, the
22d inst., instead of June 26, as originally
arranged, as her entire cargo has been se
cured. A new vessel will be put on next
■week. The New Orleans merchants have
decided to go ahead and establish a per
manent steamship line to Colon. This was
necessary to protect themselves against
the rates which New York was able to se
cure by means of water competition.
Regarding the reduction in rates on the
•wine coming from California, it is said that
the Southern Pacific road made them only
ten days ago. and was already revoking
them. The merchants did not desire that
the road should carry the goods at losing
rates, but were obliged to protect them
selves against New York.
Horses Lost in the Flames.
PITTSBURG, Pa., June 20.— Fire at 1
o'clock this morning burned Kiel & Co.'s
livery stable on Fifth avenue, Oakland.
Fout men were in the stable at the time,
two of whom were rescued. The other
two men are as yet unaccounted for.
Forty-six head of horses perished in the
flames. A number of line carriages were
also destroyed. The loss will reach $10,000.
(several dwellings were also burned.
Junior Order of Mechanics*
OMAHA, Neb., June 20.— At a meeting
of the Junior Order of Mechanics this
morning it was resolved to establish a Na
tional home for widows and orphans of
members, to be located at Tiffin, Ohio. The
first week of April is to be known as Or
phan Home week. All contributions dar

and maintain the home. The order held a
banquet to-night.
So She Will Come to Join Her Indifferent
WASHINGTON, D. C, June 20.—Com
missioner-General Stump to-day decided
that Rosario Pagano and her two children
from Italy, bound for San Francisco, may
be landed at Ellis Island. The authorities
had detained her on the ground that she
was liable to become a public charge.
She has a husband in San Francisco,
who is living there under an as
sumed name. He was found by the
Commissioner of Immigration at San
Francisco and informed of the detention of
his wife at New York. He showed little
desire to have her come West and declined
to advance the necessary money to pay her
railroad fare. As Mrs. Pagano had but $30
the employes on Ellis Island donated an
additional $30 and she will leave for the
West to-night. An investigation of her
case shows that she had supported herself
in Italy, and was not likely to become a
public charge in this country, even if her
husband refused to receive her.
Mrs. Pagano intimates that her husband
has taken up with another woman, and for
that reason she is especially desirous of
going to Ban Francisco. The immigrant
authorities at San Francisco have been
ordered to keep a watch out on Pagano
that he does not escape before his family
Why He Signed the Congratu
latory Resolutions on the
St. Louis' Voyage.
Merely the Expression of Thanks
to the Captain of the
LONDON, Exg., June 20.— 1n the House
of Commons to-day A. J. C. Doneland,
Parnellite member from Cork, asked the
Government what explanation would be
made of the action of Sir Julian Pauncefote
in signing the congratulatory resolutions
on the occasion of the first voyage of the
new American steamer St. Louis-. Mr.
Doneland demanded to know whether in
view of the fact that such action on the
part of a British Minister to a foreign
country was being utilized to advertise a
foreign company at the expense of British
companies, the Government would request
Sir Julian Pauncefote either to substan
tiate the assertions he had indorsed in the
document mentioned or withdraw his
name therefrom.
Sir Edward Grey, Parliamentary Secre
tary for Foreign Affairs, said : "I am in
formed that the resolutions were merely
the usual expression of thanks voted to the
captain of a ship after a successful voyage.
The resolutions do not refiect upon the
British companies in the least."
Right Hon. Arthur B. Forewood aaked
whether the Government defrayed the ex
penses of the passage of her Majesty's rep
resentatives to and from foreign countries,
or if they had suggested that the gentle
men should travel on British ships.
[Cries of "Oh!"]
Sir Edward Grey said the Government
knew nothing about the circumstances of
the voyage.
J. Henniker Heaton asked if it was true
that on June 6 a large number of letters
bearing 2-cent United States stamps had
arrived from New York and been deliv
ered in London, and if the recipients of the
letters had been fined 8 pence for deficient
postage. Also whether it was true that
each envelope had been found to contain
offensive circulars and whether there ex
isted any arrangement with other Govern
ments in regard to such cases whereby
tines for deficient postage were recoverable
from the sender instead of from the inno
cent addressee.
Arnold Morley, Postmaster-Generai,
said the factß were as they had been
stated by Mr. Heaton. Arrangements
could not always be made, however, in
accordance with the last question asked,
but as the case mentioned was a very
exceptional one he said representations
would be made to the Postmaster-General
of the United States.
He May Have Something to Say About
the Wreck.
WASHINGTON, D. C, June 20.-Gen
eral Dupont, supervising inspector of steam
vessels, is taking a lively interest in the
investigation now in progress in San Fran
cisco to determine tne responsibility for
the Colima disaster and is following the
published evidence closely. The matter
will finally come to him for disposal, so he
will not express an opinion . in advance for
publication, but privately he has some vig
orous views as to the great loss of life and
who were responsible for it.
The House of Commons Has Xo Confidence
in the Ministry.
LONDON, Exg., June 20.— The Central
News says the opposition leaders of the

cording to this statement Mr. Chamber
lain has framed a resolution asking her

ROME, Italy, June 20.— 1n consequence
of the disorderly scene in the Chamber of
Deputies yesterday a motion has been pre
pared and signed by a large number of the
Deputies of the majority asking that the

Populists Will Not Be
Absorbed by the
Silver Party.
Say "Amen," However, to Every
Movement Toward Im
In Short, Members Will Not Follow
the Leaders of Other
TOPEKA, Kans., June 20. — Senator
Peffer has no idea that the Populists will
be absorbed by the proposed new silver
party. He believes that the People's
party, as organized now, will contine its
existence through the financial disturb
ances in the political world, and that it
will furnish a haven of rest for the advo
cates of the free coinage of silver after the
old political organizations have been
broken up, as he is confident they will be
in the near future. When asked to-day by
the Call correspondent for his views on
the condition of the party and its future
prospects, he said, with great deliberation:
"The position of the Populist party with
respect to other political organizations is
at this time peculiar. The leading ques
tion to-day in politics is the coinage of
silver. The Republican party, and the
Democratic party as well, has taken a posi
tion on that subject which is all things to
all men and nothing delinite to anybody.
Hence it is that large numbers of their
membership are dissatisfied and are striv
ing within their respective organizations
to procure an official expression favorable
to silver. While waiting for the result of
that effort more impetuous men have un
dertaken to organize a new and distinct
party based upon the silver question alone.
"The Populists having made an em
phatic party declaration on the silver
question, and free coinage having been
part of the political creed of the voters
who iirst formed the party, and it being
one of our tenets now, all that we can do
with respect to the silver movement,
whether in the other parties or in the
proposed new party, is to encourage it.
Our party is made up of broad-minded,
liberal men, and we say 'amen' to every
movement looking toward an improvement
in general conditions.
"We regard this silver movement with
very great interest, because it is in the way
and must be disposed of ; yet it would be
folly for us to go into another party to
advocate our doctrines. Hence, unless
and until the free silver men in other
parties are willing to do as we have done —
ahandon their old organizations and are
ready to enter a new one, similar to ours —
we shall maintain our party lines intact.
"We believe that in order to accomplish
necessary reforms and especially monetary
reforms, the people who| toil must vote
together, but we cannot do that and follow
the leadership of men and parties that are
opposed to us. The two great parties are
at present officered and managed on a gold
monometallic money basis, and there is no
reason to expect that they will change
their policy in this respect. The great in
terests which they serve will not perm-it it.
It is for that reason that it is necessary for
the Populist party to maintain its align
ment so that when the other parties break
on the money question, as they will surely
do, the silver people will have a common
rallying point. Then it will be time for
all the dissatisfied elements leaving be
hind the party prejudices to confer as citi
zens and patriots concerning what is best
to be done. The Populist is ready to meet
his brother, Republican and Democrat and
Prohibitionist, on common grounds at any
time, but if they are not willing to meet
him he will fight his battles alone."
General Heaver Says the I'arty Will Be
rut to the Teat.
DES MOINES, lowa, June 20.— 1n re
sponse to a question as to the condition and
future of the Populist party, General J. B.
Weaver this evening said:
"The Populist party, under one name
and another, from Peter Cooper to the
present time, has led in the important
work of economic reform in the United
States. To its persistent, intelligent and
concentrated effort we are indebted for the
great revival of economic learning which
is now shaking this country from center to
"If it shall prove in the fuhire that its
constructive force in the impending crisis,
which it has itself precipitated, is equal to
its analytical and philosophic strength, it
will be the center of organization for all
the kindred reform elements of the coun
try. This is the great test which now con
fronts it, and I believe that it will rise with
the emergency and prove equal to the
great duty of the hour.
"It has forced the consideration of the
money question upon all of the other par
ties and they are sorely divided while it is
united. Neither the Democratic nor the
Republican party can possibly expect to
poll a united vote for their ticket next
year. Millions of free-silver Republicans
will bolt the gold-standard ticket, and they
will turn with disgust from a platform of
doubtful meaning. About half of the
Democrats favor free silver at 16 to 1 and
the abolition of National banks and the
issuance of legal-tender paper currency by
the Government. The other naif are hope
lessly wedded to the gold standard and the
British system of finance throughout.
These houses are divided against them
selves and cannot stand and the new struc
ture will rise upon their ruins. It is a
question of civilization and the sooner the
old moribund parties give way to the new
the better it will be for all concerned.
"Just how the union of reform elements
is to be effected is a little difficult to fore
cast. I think, however, that the ticket
will be the point of union. The Pop
ulists will, of course, hold their
National convention and the country
may fairly hope for broad and liberal
action on their part. The assurance that
they will do this is found Mn the fact of
thorough integrity of purpose which char
acterizes the movement. They are honest,
and before God ninety and nine among
them wish only to blame mankind. This
will lead them to nominate a man like Mr.
Sibley of Pennsylvania and Judge Cald
well of the United States Circuit Court.
The first is of Democratic antecedents, the
latter of Republican. These men are of
the Lincoln and Jackson type. I know
them both intimately, and their superiors
in point of qualifications, integrity and re
form instincts cannot be found on this
continent. .Such a ticket would likely
unite all reform elements. The great
question of the hour is how to get together.
We are past the platform period and are
confronted with great tactical questions
which always precede great conflicts like
that which awaits.us in 1896."
Editor t How ell Tells of Issues Forced by
Legislation. ,;•(
ATLANTA, Ga., June 20.— T0 the Editor
of the Call : You ask me if the Solid South
will remain solid or co to pieces. The
South was made solid "politically by what
they considered an attempt to force legis
lation on the negro question that they did
not believe was constitutional. The force
bill and kindred legislation on that line
did more than any other one thing to make
a solid vote in the South, as it over
shadowed all other issues. Ido not be
lieve that such legislation will be at
tempted in the future. And lam satisfied
if there is no further attempt on this line <
that the South will not divide on economic
questions. There is a growing disposition
all over the South to join with the West in
making necessary reforms in the tariff and
more especially on the financial question.
I believe that the South is as solid for
the remonetization of silver as any
of the Western States and that the
approaching elections next year will show
that they will join with the West in mak
ing; needed reforms both in the tariff and
financial questions. I do not think any:
further agitation on the tariff question is
possible, unless there is an attempt next
Congress to change the status of : the pres
ent tariff law. The great question with
our people to-day is the financial question, i
and they "are divided up"on that question
more than any that has arisen since tne
war, with a greater preponderance in favor
of silver from the Potomac to the Rio
Grande. There is no element, in the South
that desires to keep up late old issues in
any shape or form, l believe the South is
as patriotic to-day as any part of the Union.
This is the prevailing sentiment without
exception over the whole South. ; ' '

Mrs.* Sheoard Disap
proves Her Daugh
ter's Marriage
All the Vanderbilts Stayed
Away From the Little
Says the Groom Is Not a Sporting
Man, but His Father Was a
NEW YORK, N. V., June 20.— Mrs.
Elliott F. Shepard was not present at the
marriage of her daughter, Alice Vander
biit Shepard and Dave Hennen Morris (he
was christened Dave, not David), which
took place at the Little Church Around
the Corner Wednesday afternoon. Mrs.
Shepard knew that the wedding was to
take place, but she refused to give her con
sent to it or to be present.
No member of Miss Shepard's family
was a witness of the ceremony. The Van
derbilts were all absent, although they
knew of the engagement of the young peo
ple and the time of the wedding. The
bride was given away by Thurlow Weed
Barnes of 7 West Twenty-sixth street,
brother-in-law of Mr. Morris.
The two witnesses to the marriage con
tract were William O. O'Neil of 39 West
T entieth street, and Rosina Kelly, maid
to Mrs. Barnes. The others present were
Alfred H. Morris, brother of the bride
groom, Mrs. Thurlow Weed Barnes, sister
of the bridegroom, and Edward Harding
of Philadelphia, a relative of Richard
Harding Davis.
The story of the wedding was told to a
United Press reporter this afternoon by
Thurlow Weed Barnes at his apartments
in the Croisic.
"There is no reason for any mystery in
this case," he said, "and I am willing to
tell you all I know about it. A year ago
Mr. Morris and Miss Shepard met while
crossing the ocean on the steamship Ma
jestic. A tew months ago they became en
gaged to be married. The members of
both families were soon made aware of the
engagement. Mrs. Shepard did not view
it kindly. She thought that her daughter
should not marry Mr. Morris because he
owned racehorses and because his father
had owned them.
"I am not a horse-owner, but I can't see
anything wrong in horse-racing, and I
candidly see no reason why excuses should
be made for it. The late Mr. Morris came
of a family of horse-owners. He wanted
his son to take an interest in horses be
cause he believed that it kept a man more
in the open air, and that it was beneficial
to his health. His old friend, Larry
Jerome, once said he believed that Mr.
Morris kept up his health because he was
interested in horses and horse-racing.
"Ab for Dave Morris 1 am certain that
nothing can be said against him. He has
no vicious habits. He is particularly stu
dious and ambitious to succeed in the pro
fession which he has chosen, the practice of
medicine and surgery. It is a pet project of
his and of his wife's to establish on a large
scale a hospital in thig city where all, rich
and poor alike, may be treated gratuit
ously. He has often said to me that to be
the head of such an institution was his
ambition. That his wife is a niost charita
bly disposed and charming young woman
is well known. Despite these facts Mrs.
Shepard did not seem to favor the suit.
Her son, formerly a Yale student, who is
now in California, is a friend of Mr. Morris.
"Ten days ago Mr. Morris returned from
Harvard for his Bummer vacation. He
met Mtes Shepard. They had intended to
marry a year from now, when he com
pleted his collegiate course. They decided,
however, that it would be just as well to
get married at once. Mrs. Shepard and
her daughter came to town yesterday from
their country place at Scarborough-on-the-
Hudson. They come to town once or
twice a week as a rule during their stay at
"Did Mrs. Shepard know that the wed
ding was to take place?"
"I believe so. She has not been feeling
well recently. That might be a reason
why she did not attend."
"What are Mr. Morris' plans?"
"After the summer he will return to
Harvard to complete his course. I don't
know whether Mrs. Morris will accom
pany him or not. I believe that the col
lege rules will not allow it, but perhaps
they will live in Boston."
Dr. Houghton said to-day that he had as
sisted at the ceremony. Dr. C. DeWitt
Bridgman, who officiated, lives at One
Hundred and Twenty-second street and
Lenox avenue. He sent out word to the
reporter that he had nothing to say. A
letter, however, was received by Mr.
Barnes to-day from Dr. Bridgman, in
which he said:
"It was not till I reached home last even
ing that I knew how generously you had
recognized my service. That I am
grateful there is no need of de
claring. If these were days of free
coinage, the honorarium would be
princely. Mr. Morris is frank and nianly,
and the bride was so intelligent. I will
never forget the reverence and confidence
she showed in declaring her vows. My
heart is with them. See that the young
people have good advice just at this time.
I should like to call on them iv a few days
if they are in town."
The sexton of the Little Church Around
the Corner said it was the quietest wed
ding he had seen for a long time. At
the residence of Cornelius Vanderbllt,
Fifth avenue and Fifty-seventh street, a
servant told the reporter that Mr. Vander
bilt was not at home. Mrs. Shepard,
who lives in the old Vanderbilt mansion at
Fifth avenue and Fifty-third street, de
clined to see callers to-day. The other
members of the Vanderbilt family are at
Newport and Lenox.

Now the Czar Will Hastily Send
Troops From Odessa to
LO'DON, Eng., June 20.— A special dis
patch from St. Petersburg by way of
Eydtkuhnen, on the Russian frontier,
says the Russian Government has received
a communication from the Government of
Great Britain advising the Czar's Govern
ment of the intention of England to mane
a naval demonstration at Constantinople.
Advices have been received in St. Peters
burg from other sources to the effect that
the British Embassador to Turkey, Sir
Philip Currie, is secretly intriguing with
the Armenian patriarchs. According to
these advices there is no doubt that the
English pro-Armenian committee is sup
plying the Armenians with a large num
ber of weapons, and the Russian Govern
ment is preparing to meet the develop
ments of the situation outlined.
The twentieth division of the Russian
army, now stationed in the south of Rus
sia, has been ordered to the vicinity of
Kars, and the departure of 1500 troops

Career of the Cuban
With the Claim
Against Spain.
Now His Hope for a Big
Indemnity Is About to
Be Realized.
How He Was Deprived of His
Property and Sentenced
to Death.
NEW YORK, N\ V., June 20.-Antonio
Maximo Mora, whose claim again
Spanish Government for $1,500.f«»i appears
to be in a fair way of being settled, i
as he has been for years, a resident of this
city. He has lived here since the Span.
iards passed sentence of death upon him,
at a time when he, fortunately, was in this
country. Mr. Mora for the last thirty-fire
years has considered this city his home,
although during a great portion of that
time he has had larpe property interests in
Cuba. The old firms of Mora i-iephews it
Mora, ana Mora, Navarro & Co., are well
known among the sugar-dealers who years
ago controlled the imports from Cuba. In
both of the firms Mr. Mora was the con
trolling member. Mr. Mora lives at 161
West Sixty-third street, the house where
his sons— Antonio and Aurilo— have made
a home for him to ease his declining years.
His daughter keeps house for them, and
considers her fathers every wish.
An effort was made to see Mr. Mora by a
reporter, but as he had been abed for sev
eral days with neuralgia, his son Aurelic
asked that he be excused. He said that
aside from his father's temporary ailmont
he was as well as could be expected for a
man 77 years old, although his father's
father had lived for 110 years. Aurelio
Mora spoke freely of his father's case
aeainst Spain.
"We have been waiting many years,"
said he, '-to have father's claim paid. It
has been long delayed, but we never have
lost hope. Father always has been hope
ful, and has had confidence in his adopted
country. His hopefulness has infused us,
and we have come to have as strong a be
lief that his equities would be acknowl
edged as he. Father owned plantations of
great value in Cuba, and in 1853 he ac
quired a residence in New York. He did
not become a citizen until 1869, however,
although he had Jarge business interests
"While the rebellion was going on in
1869 the Spanish authorities sentenced
father to death and confiscated his prop
erty. The claim that he was implicate'! in
the sporadic war which was then progress
ing was false and had no foundation.
They took his property, but fortunately
could not take his life. For a time he kept
a cigar-store, although he formerly lived in
great luxury. My mother bmke down,
after worrying for years, and died two
years ago. She was a stronc, hopeful
woman, but had not the reserve power that
father possesses.
•'The property that waß taken by the
Spaniards consisted of sugar plantations,
factories and warehouses, as well equipped
as any that then existed on the island.
This was all taken and worked until the
Spanish Government accumulated fully
$2,500,000, and was then disposed of in
some way. After the claim for indemnity
was made the matter was considered for
several years, and then they suggested a
compromise of $1,500,000. This was ac
cepted for the purpose of closing up the
matter, but it has dragged along since 1886.
The claim was made through Secretary
Fish in 1870, who protested against sen
tencing an American citizen to death and
confiscating his property. He declared it
to be a violation of the treaty between
Spain and the United States and made a
strenuous effort in father's behalf. Many
protests have been made. Mr. Blame tried
to have the matter settled, but did not suc
ceed. Minister Behnont did all he could
to aid father, but he also was unsuccessful.
But it looks now as if Mr. Olney will
accomplish what others have failed to do.
