Some Liidersirulilcs
New Yoik Aprils The controversy be
tween Superintendent of Immigration
Weber aud agents of the steamship Inize
tiva which brought to this port a number
of undesirable Italian immigrants is not
yet ended Col Weber is determined that
the immigrants shall be conveyed back on
the steamship that landed them and at the
expense of the vessels owners In a
sharp letter the agents of the Inizctiva
say that the superintendent had no right to
crowd the undesirable immigrants back 011
their vessel without proper notification
The agents hivc declared that the Incze
tivsi is not going back to Italy and that
they will not be responsible for their re
turn unless the immigrants arc retained at
the barge office until such lime as the
agents are ready
This discrimination on the part of the
agents lias aroused Col Weber and he has
laid down the laws on the subject Col
Weber adds in his letter -It cannot bo
that the authorities of the foreign alms
house or prison may place inmates thereof
in a ship destined to this country which
vessel was not to be returned to port
whence she came and that such convicts or
pauperb might be foisted ou our people on
the ground that business or other interests
of the steamship company have made it
necessary for the vessel to ply between
other ports-
The Inizctiva cleared at the custom house
to day for Lisbon
Italian societies here arc deeply inter
ested in the controversy
Physicians have examined some of the
immigrants in the interests of the societies
and they have averred that none suffer
Iroin either disease or poverty
Twenty four Italian immigrants who
landed from the steamship Burgundia yes
terday were sent back by that steamerto
day by the barge oflice authorities The
immigrants had contagious diseases and
were without means of support

I concurrent resolution providing for a sine

was read in the house this afternoon it was
welcomed with such a clapping of hands as
indicated an earnest desire and purpose
among the members to affoid it and wind
up business on the day named but it does
not now seem very probable that an ad
journment can be reached Monday Tho
appropriation bill will claim the attention
ot the house to morrow and will not get
into the hands of the enrolling clerk before
Friday A day is necessary to enroll the
bill and it cannot reach tho sc ate until
Saturday Unless the senate shall throw
opposition to the winds and accept the bill
practically without change it cannot get
back to the house in time to admit of an
adjournment Monday
Members are eager to go home and are
willing enough to hasten matters to that
end but it is considered hardly possible by
members of the house to do so Monday
Again there are many members interested
in bills which they want rushed through
at tho fag end oi the session and to that
end they are willing to hold on a day or ttvo
longer Of course bad legislation is apt to
result and that may induce the bulk of the
members to hasten the hour of adjourn
Irom Will L Sargent to KvauIoues That
Austin Manifesto Defended
Kayxeh Stonewall County Tex I
April 3 1W1 f
Evan Jones President Farmers State Al
liance of Texas
Deau Silt In the Southern Mercury of
March 10 iyil your high cockaloruin
ship seems from your edict to be offended
about a manifesto issued from Austin eng
March 4 As a signer of the address 1 feel
it my duty as a member of tho Alliance to
reply to you
You say you denounce said manifesto as
an unprovoked falsehood upon every- Al
liance man in Texas Where is it false
Aud must the Alliance people understand
that this is the way the president of the
great State Alliance answers manifestos
Sir wc arc constrained to say that guilt
hovers around or you would produce some
argument and not vilification You abovo
all others have been placed in a position if
your memory is not defective to know that
that manifesto contained coid stern facts
Can you refreshen your memory and give
us the salaries paid to the manager of tho
Exchange anil his many assistants when
the concern was inaugurated and let the
people have a say
Will you further state how many thou
sands of dollars was paid into that concern
the compress and the manufacturing estab
lishment and for the sake of poor men and
women throughout Texas stato what be
came of them
I Is it not a fact that on one trip North
the manager of the concern Exchange
presented a bill for 4000 traveling expenses
aud that the executive committee paid it
Is it not a fact that just prior to the con
vening of a certain State Alliance in Dallas
that the president of that body drew out
of the treasury through the executive
committee as a salary of SIMM and that
after adjournment the delegates presented
their vouchers for pay when they wore
politely informed that they could only get
50 cents on the dollar many having to
borrow money to get home to their families
Now to the Mercury 1 tell you sir that
you know that that paper was wrung from
the people and for a deep laid purpose Do
you remember on August -I lzV after
adjournment of the days session of the Al
liance in Dallas Tex that you Perdue
and myself in conversation on our way to
the Piuenix hotel for supper after the mo
tion of Brother Hewitt of Koekwall county
to lay the motion of Tracys on the table
which was to sell or lease the Mercury and
which motion earned by a large majority
You or Perdue said the question would
come up again that night I then plead with
you not to allow it to be done and that if it
was I certainly would expose the fraud
You manifested great surprise at my re
mark and said Brother Sargent it cannot be
possible that anything is wrong I told you
that it was a deep laid plot to rob the State
Alliance of all we had left and for you to
help down it You wanted some proof for
my assertion I gave it to you and now
pass it to you once more Maj B of
Taylor county told me that a big scheme
was on foot for certain parties to got con
trol of the Mercury have beenoffered

- -
selling or leasing said paper I have also
seen the further stated articles of agree
ment drawn up by a joint stock company
I cannot say auything said the major and
gave his reasons which wero perfectly sat
isfactory to us but I will put you on for
it is sure to come up and a plot that ought
to be downed After supper you
feigned sickness and Perdue was in the
chair and sure enough the Tracy resolu
tion to sell or lease the Mercury was called
from the table between the hours of 10 and
12 p in when some seventy of the eVIc
gates had gone home many from promises
and with the understanding it should not
be called up How was it passed By the
chair casting the deciding vote by casting
the vote of the delegate from Young county
who had gone home some three days be
fore That night never would the chair
recognize the writer of this though many
times had the floor before others J L
Goodman of Kobertseu was treated like
wise Why was this done Simply to
carry their point they were afraid for the
truth to be told
Am I correct in placing you in the ranks
of the sub treasurites
Is not the present state lecturer and two
of the executive committee and tho mana
gers of the Mercury believers and teachers
of that doctrine the sub treasury bill Is
it not a fact that that a majority of the
officers of the State Alliance are sub-
treasury men
Now isnt it an indisputable fact that
tho last Democratic convention at San
Antonio declared against tho sub treasury
seheme and did riot the Republican con
vention which convened shortly afterwards
declare in favor of the bill You say -the
Alliance never has is not now nor can it
ever become partisan in politics If you
are telling the truth pieaso explain to me
what is the sub treasury idea but a parti
san political question In Texas iiolitics
for the Republicans favor it while the Dem
ocrats denounce it in their respective plat
Did you not state a short time ago that
you were a true Democrat and that the
party in Texas was good enough for vou if
so now can you harmonize your Democracy
and support a Republican measure
Did you claim that political faith before
you left Iowa to come to Texas to brand
Southern men and Democratic Alliance
men as falsifiers when they dare expose
wrongs perpetrated upon an order they
were members of
Did you and the skew ball outfit that was
at your back in Erath county claim 10 be
Democrats when you were fighing the
Democratic nominee for state senate Sena
tor Frank and supporting a sorghum mill
grinder by the name of Davis
wno did not know the first princi
ples of Democracy and you succeeded in
carrying the county- against Frank I will
ask yon a few more questions since you are
making sacrifices to yourself and family
by tilling the office you now hold
Is the report true that the Mercury is
paying you SI 00 and expenses per mouth
also free passes over railroad lines to work
for it If so it seems to us that the presi
dency of the State Alliance is not bothering
you much nor creating much sacrifice You
say you demand charges Who wants
charges to go before a stocked jury Yes
we were present when you did so and
every member of the legislature who had
signed that request for you to remove your
self appomted steering committee from
Austin f till stuck to their demand You
w holly disregarded their request Was it
because Sledge was at the head of the Mer
cury and also one of the committee while
you and Tracy are working on salaries for
the paper Havent you and tho Mercury
since then tried to whitewash said commit
tee to tho order of the state
Why all this thusness just at a critical
moment when the commission bill was up
and the house was on the appointive clause
Your presence bobbed up serenely in
Austin so you said you were passing
through to a member of the house and
just stopped over for a day or so Still
you had a meeting called that night and in
the caucus you gently- informed the boys
that the people were in favor of an elective
commission which doctrine George Clark
and his allies with the steering committee
thrown in railroads and alh
and all antinewspapers were
clamoring for
If the manifesto is false why did not
your employes Mercury publish the ad
dress and show where t was untrue and
at the same time givo space to those who
would defend the manifesto Hon G W
White of Freestone county one of the
signers of the address in person asked this
of tho manager of the Mercury So you
see a request for a fair discussion of both
sides before the people was asked but re-
lused 1 would resjioctrully ask you the
chief mogul of the order is it right for a
paper that claims to be tho organ of the
Alliance to refuse to publish honest Alli
ance mens convictions who have built tho
paper up always stood by it and have to be
pushed in tho background and the people
can hear but one side presented and
that not by argument but to vilify and
brand honest men who have done much for
the Alliance cause in Texas men who
people have recognized their merit and
ability by placing them in high and honor
able Ksitious In conclusion it might be
well to state that you and your henchmen
can never by cowardly inuendocs and
branding honest men in an honest endeavor
to save a grand order from prostitution and
ruin keep them from the step The signers
of that manifesto are only too willing to
meet the wolves that oppose them before
the Alliance men and all other good people
of Texas Your edict has gone forth but
it is seed sown by the wayside
You can no longer hoodoo the Texas
people That manifesto you nor those that
believe with you can climb over She will
always look rough and tough to you So
my brother take home with you this fact
that the -truth is mighty and will prevail
The eternal years are hers Fraternaly

ductory words opening aud constituting I Music hall this
Tor Kiq
evening Covers were laid
for sl Besides the guests and speaker-
I aud with the spectators in the gallery
j more than a thousand people were present
President Roger Woleott sat at the mid

Walker Congressman Klijah If Morse
and ex Governor Oliver Ames On his
left sat Senator Nelson W Aldrieh of
Rhode Island Governor J Q A Bracken
Congressman Henry Cabott Lodge Presi
dent Henry Sprague of the Massechiisetts
senate Congressman L T Greenhall and
Gen N P Banks
Precisely at 7 oclock President Woleott
rose to open the speaking When President
Woleott introduced Secretary Tracy the
latter was greeted by rousing cheers
Secretary- Tracy after expressing his
thanks for the welcome extended him paid
a high tribute to the Republican party and
present administration He recognized as
underlying the power of the latter tho clear
intelligence firm will and high conscien
tiousness of purpose of President Harrison
The secretary then gave a detailed ac
count of the work in which the navy de
iiartment is at present engaged and con
cluded as follows One last point in naial
affairs remains to be considered the ques
tion of diplomatic labor at the navy
yards For fifty years this has been
one weak spot in the naval administra
tion Whatever party in control of the
government it scorns hitherto have been
powerless to exclude political influence in
tne employment ot navy yard labor Jt is
not enough apparently that mechanics and
workmen in the government shops should
bo Republicans or Democrats
they- must wear the collar of the
ward bosses who run the local political ma
chine The practice is a source of demor
alization to any party that attempts to use
it as destructive to the government serv
ice and debauching local and national
fiolitics It is an ulcer in the naval ad
ministration system and I propose to
cut it out Applause My atten
tion has been directed for some
time past to the system adopted
here in the city of Boston for the selection
of laborers employed upon the citys works
I have caused an exhaustive study to be
made of that system by which you
have largely succeeded in eliminating
politics from municipal labor and
i believe that by- extension and
inodihcation of it the same result can be
made reasonably- certain in the government
navy yards Details of the system which I
propose to adopt are being prepared aud in
a short time will be in full operation
I propose to carry out this new system
so as to regulate it that two ends
shall be secured First employment
upon the grounds of merit to
be determined by- non partisan experts
engaged in responsible work and
second absolute publicity of every detail
And having began in the way I have indi
cated I do not propose to stop until the
principle of etticiency aud worth is
the only test of navy yard employment
I am satisiied that such system will bo in
the interest not only of working men but
that it can be carried out so that it will re
move not only machine politics from the
navy yards but all suspicion of
machine politics that economy and
efficiency of work will be promoted
while the community will be
sure that the navy yard in its midst in
stead of being a focus of local political in
trigue is a place of employment of a body
of independent self respecting workmen
whose only road to promotion lies in good
work and where slackness indolence or
bad habits will surely lead to discharge
