Sentiment Is lied Hot In Alexandria
.Against the Garbage Fleet The
Nest Boat to Attempt Blockade
Bunnlnz Mny Be Diddled With Bul
lets and Sent to the Bottom.
(From Our "War Correspondent.)
Tlio next scow load of garbage and buz
rards that anchors in Alexandria waters
may be pent to the bottom, not with kero
sene oil and battle-axes, but by n shower
or shot and shell iroin the guns of indignant
citizens.
"Kay to the Washington people," said
Mayor Strauss, of Alexandria, yester
day afternoon, "that, if necessary, I can
have 500 men with rifles in their hands
on our river front at any moment to pro
tect our people from this garbage outrage."
Mr. Strauss was not excited, but he was
terribly in earnest. He was deliberate and
emphatic.
"You can say, further," he continued,
that tiie bankers and solid men or the
city arc behind this determination, and
nothing but a revenue cutter can protect
one of these scows in the nuisance they
have been committing."
It ib evident that while Alexandria Is
not an armed camp, ft is a camp that could
be armed against the intruding scow fleet
In less time than It would take the battle
ship Texas to blow the biggest cruiser ia
tha herring fleet to the bottom of the Po
tomac. It is also not altogether a fancy scene
presented in The Times cartoon of the
ponding war against the scows It was re
ported yesterday that the scow fleet -will
Juslst on passing the Alexandria fortress
and other Hues of defense, so that the
rattle of rifle, and the boom of cannon may
be heard in the gray dawn of any of these
fine June mornings.
Mayor Strauss has not made nn idle
threat. He is backed up b the insulted
citizens to a in an and woman. 1 hey all ap
plaud his summary way or dealing itb
these marine night liners and they are
equally high in praise or Health Officer
Miller, who took summary revenge on the
first scow that goc within reach of the ax
and coal oil can of Superintendent Dobic,
of the street department.
Superintendent Dobie is still in his
fighting clothes He was taking it cool
and easj at his residence on Tairfax street
yesterday morning when he was called
on by The Times He is quite proud of
the feat bj which he sent the first fcow
down to the bottom, -which, not being very
far from tho surface, loft a very melan
choly iart of the wrecked offense with
its heels up in the air There is an inter
esting bit of bistorj connected with the
crew of the first sunken scow. It is said
that thoy stood the voyage as long as
they could and eventually got unspeak
ably seasick. They -were aground and the
breeze wn6 blowing strong from all sides
directly on the crew, who were two, a
captain and a first lieutenant.
"Nothing but a first clnss jag will cure
this tlnng," said the lieutenant,
"Then a Jag it is," said the captain.
"Lower the captain's yawl from the
davits." said tho captain to the lieutenants
"You've got your Jag already," said
the lieutenant; thete kind of scows don't
have no yawls nor davits "
"Then lets us sMlm out O'Grady." said
the captain, and thej plunged in and
wam to the Maryland shore. As soon as
the privates had disappeared Commodore
Dobie ordered out his canoe fleet and
-with a trust! marine with a battle ax
they rowed over to the deserted scow
which was emitting distressing odors
and flying other signals of distress, and
between the conflagation and the fctmenng
of her keel down it went, upside down
amid the acclaim of tho crowds on shore.
The second scow -was caught in the act
right opposite Queen street wbnjT and it
was sunk in an uncommonly deep part of
the angry river. At low -water yesterday
there wasn't a piece of thlh last -wreck in
Bight. Tiielieutenantatpoliceheadquarters
wn6aked about ltand he 6aid thatMiehad
been sunk under ordcrb from the mayor to
Superintendent Dobie.
This latter officer is still scanning the
horwon for the next scow and it is Just an
cure to go down as that the Bun goes down
regularly at Alexandria eery evening.
Judging from the -war talk in official
circles and among the citizens generally
It will be a perilous undertaking to run the
blockade of this port of nou-entry on
your life.
It has been denied that the contents of
these scows get loote in the river Alex
andrians think and say otherwise. The
two gentlemen who own the boat-house at
the foot of Queen 6treet said jeeterday
that one afternoon, whenthe wind was from
the East, a whole dead zoo came floating
In to their wharf. Washington cats and
dogs, and pigeons, geese, turkeys, and other
long-dead mammals and birds rioated about
In Tearful review. Both of these arc quiet
Industrious and sober citizens.
They told what they saw, or at least a
part of it, and the Imagination can picture
the rest.
"Of course we are going to fight," said
another wharf man. "What would those
contractors think if I w ere tocarry a basket
ful of bacilli and other wiggle tails and
dump them in the fish pond right in the
rear of their residences. Or w hat would the
K-orld think if we submitted to all this and
slept with our -windows down all night
and held our handkerchiefs to our noses all
day. Yes. sir, jou can sny that every time
a scow is knocked out of ngbt I eay amen.
Hit "em n comiu' and a goin'.
Mr. S 1' Bayly, the superintendent of
the Baltimore company having the gar
bage contract, said last night that the con
tract with the Commissioners called for
the delivery of the garbage outside of the
District limits. All of the garbage, he said,
with the exception of about thirty loads
was to be delivered at Kint i landing,
which is clearlj outside of the District
limits.
"If," he said, "any of the garbage is
being delivered within the limits in the
ummer time, without the special permit
of the Commissioners, such delivery 16
wit liout warrant by the contract,"
The Alexandrians are prepared to prove
that some or the stuff is delivered Just
opposite their city, and hence the contract
Js violated It isrcild, in fact, that the load
on the first scow that was Sunk was intended
for a Mr. Sweenv, who lives opposite
Alexandria.
Mr? Bajly also said that if the scows
are anchored within the Dim riot waters
"wjihout a reasonable excuse the contract
is violated. The anchoring of the scows
at which the Alexandrians took umbrage
took place within the Jlistrict -waters.
The tS.ieateued suit agaiiist the city of
Alexandria lias no terrors for the people
there Mr Hubert Snowden. one of the
aldermen, said yesterday that the au
thorities neither reared a suit nor its re

provocation for the summary vengeance
taken on the Intruders, and expressed tho
convlctiou that tills kind of d if case would
always be met "with heroic treatment.

demanded unconditionally by an over
w helming majority of the American people.
Butler says Democrats now really have
no organization, and then adds: "A ma

it was thought best for the cause of reform
to gie the minority time aud pass ouly
such resolutions as would be heartily con
curred in by every delegate"

Blackburn Beaten For the Besolutlona
Committee Membership From His

the Committee Stniidfe 9 to 4 Against
Free Sller.
Louisville, Ky. , June 25 The admin
istration and Secretary Carlisle were cer
tainly favorites in tho Democratic State
convention here to-day
The silverjtes went into the district meet
ings in the morning and into the convention
at noon with confidence In the disrtict
meetings they were beaten 2 to 1.
Tbey claimed four out of the eleven dis
trict membersoftbecommitteconresolutions,
but the administration men claim that the
committee stood 8 to 3 originally against
free 6ilver, and as completed 9 to -1.
The complexion of this committee could
not have been changed by the appointment
of both membcrs-at-largefromthesilverites,
but when Judgo William Beckner, as tempo
rary chairman, divided tho members-at-large,
giving one of the two to each side, the
silver men felt that they had been outclassed,
although thoy would not confess to being
outnumbered
SILVERITES' LAST HOPE.
They claimed a victory in the election of
Beckner oer Stone, but after the former
divided the appointments equally on all
the committees and announced his conser
vative views, no claims were made on him.
Stone would have appointed only "sound
money" men on the committees.
Judge Beckner is a "sound money" man,
but favored Gen Hardin for governor
Although Gen. Hardin favors free coinage,
he has been supported throughout-by many
who insist on a sound money platform for
him.
The silver men on the committee on reso
lutions are. First district, August Coul
ter; second, W. T Ellis; third, John S.
Rhea; at large, J. D 'Clardy.
The gold men on the committee are.
Fourth, E. D Walker; fifth, J M. Atherton;

BLACKBURN'S BAD DEFEAT.
The feature of the day was the defeat in
his home district of Senator J. C. S. Black
burn for member of the committee on reso
lutions by Prof. Arthur Yeager, a man of
pronounced gold standard views, but who
has devoted his time to college work aud not
to politics.
Seuator Blackburn nspired to the chair
manship of this committee and expected to
have a majority of its members with him
for free coiuage and against Cleveland and
Carlisle.
When Blackburn was defeated in the
Seventh district it was ascertained thai the
Hardin men did not want to be embarasscd
by bis appointment as oneofthe'uembers-at-large
and then Mr. W. T Ell" 'of the Sec
ond district, offered Senator Blackburn
his proxy.
Objections were raised in the convention
on the announcement of Blackburn's name
for the committee from the Second dis
trict and no further erforts in that direction
were made.
ADMINISTRATION ENDORSED.
Numerous dilatory motions -were in
dulged in, the Clay men wanting an ad
journment till to-morrow. As neither the
committee on credentials nor the one on
resolutions were ready to report, this
filibustering was kept up forever two hours
-with much disturbance.
The committee on resolutions was ready
to report at i p. m., but delated its report
awaiting the outcome of the credential com
mittee, which -was fighting over contests
among the delegates from Louisville and
Newport.
Senator sLndsay prepared the majority
report on resolutions which embraced a
strong, houest money plank and Indorsed
Cleveland and Carlisle by name for their
financial policy and administration. It
was signed by nine of the thirteen mmebers
or the committee.
There were two minority reports, one
6igned by Rhea and Ellis rorthefreecoinnge
of silver at 16 to 1, and the other simply
reaffirming the platform or 1892, signed by
Clardy and Coulter.
BUSINE&S DELAYED.
There was intense feeling because the
fight between the Hardin and Clay men
on seating delegates in the committee on
credentials delayed tho resolutions and
the Garbage War May
the proceedings of the convention, but
nothing could bo done toward facilitating
busiucss.
Several hundred motions to adjourn were
voted down and the convoutlon remained
waiting, although the committee on cre
dentials at 11 p. in. announced it could
not report till after midnight.
Senator Lindsay and Chairman Berry
refused to report tho resolutions or do any
thing till tho report on credentials came in.

CONFERENCE FOR AUGUST
Thoy "Will Carry on Their Work
"Within Party Lines in the Hope
of Controlling tho National Conven
tion Regular Machinery .Not to Bo
Invoked Effort to A-vo!d Friction.
.Memphis, Tenn., Juno 25. Immediately
after the adjournment of the recent silver
convention in this city a mooting of a num
ber of prominent Democrats who attended
that gathering was held and plans outlined
for an organization of Tree-silver men
within the Democratic party for the pur
pose of ciirrj lug oh the silver campaign
within party lines.
As a result of this meeting the follow
ing address has been sent to Democratic
leaders throughout the country.
Soon after the adjournment of the silver
convention held In this city, on the 12th
and 13th Instant, many Democrats, repre
senting several States ot the Union, held
a meeting here for the purpose of consider
ing the best method of securing the free
and unlimited coinage of both Bdver and
gold into full legal tender money of ultimate
redemption, at the ratio of 16 to 1, without
regard to the financial policy of other
countries, aud It was unanimously agreed
as the confideut opinion of that conference
WHERE THEIR HOPE LIES.
1. That the only hope of securing the
free and uulimltcd coinage ot &il erat 16 to
1, is through the action of the Democratic
party.
2. That n large majority of the Demo
ocratic partj of the country and a very
large majority of the people ot the United
States, irrespective o party, favor such
coinage.
:i. That tiie success of the Democratic
party m tho campaign of 18UG largely,
if not wholly, depends on the earnest and
activeadvocacy of the free and unlimited
coinage of silver.
" 4. That a thorough organization of
the Democrats or the several States who
ravor tfie free and unlimited coinage of
silver and gold on equality of 1G to 1 is
a necessity and the proper means or
controlling the action of the uational
Democratic convention of 189G upon this
vitally important question.
WAY TO AVOID FRICTON.
5. That in older to a-void friction and
the complaint of such Democrats as oppose
the free coinage of silver, we will not
invoke the action of tho regular machinery
of the party whose duty it is to act for
tho whole party, without regard to differ
ences of opinion upon a single question.
Therefore, we, the undersigned, were
appointed a committee to take such steps
as may be necessaiy to a thorough national
organization of siler Democrats, and
for the purpose we respectfully invite you
to meet us at Washington, D. C', on tho
1 tth day of August, 1805, in Older that we
may confer and co operate in establishing
such organization and you are requested
to bring with you sucli Democratic friends
as ore in full sympathy with this purpose.
It is important that a Democrat acceptable
to the Democracy of your State and will
ing to lepreseut it on i national executive
committee should attend this conference.
An eaily answer, addressed to Hon. Casey
Young, Memphis, Tenn., will greatly
oblige. Respectfully,
IS HAM G. HARRIS,

VEST IS roil IJLMETTALISM.

Sweet Springs, Mo , June 25. Senator
Vest, who is stopping at his cottage near
here, had this to say to day on the money
question In its relation to the country as
a whole, and especially to Missouri.
"There must be a settlement of the sil
ver question without equivocation. We
must determine to adopt the gold standard
permanently, retire the greenbacks, and
perjv tuate the national banks with their
paper based exclusivelj on gold, or we
must open our mints to silver.
"I believe in real bimetallism, the use
of both gold and silver as Ktandard morey,
but if we must have one metal or theother
I would take silver, for we would then
at least be independent, instead or being
the tail of the English kite and the helpless
victim of the Rothschilds syndicate."

Marquis of f-alisbury hail formally accented
the premiership made vacant by the- resig

London.
This news created somewhat of a sesa

hesitate, ir nut decline, to accept i&
premiership.

The Tonts were reluctant, it is saW,
to take oifiee before a new par bam
is elected, on the ground that it wottM
not be good party strategy to be aetay
in power and hi a measure responsible
before the general election. With the
Liberals still holding office, the Conserva
tives could go to the discontented voters and
ask them pointedly how things eooid be
different under the present government
adding if the Torws were in power tMngf
wrnntf be better. But with ttoe Torfls
actually in office the; will have t taSe
a share in the voter's mind of repea
