MARIETTA LEADER. i VOL. XI: NO. 69 MARIETTA. OHIO. SATUKDA Y, MAttOH 21, 1890. J'KICE ONE CENT DAILY t ; HELD A OA.DCUS. Democratic Senators Consider the Subject of Patronage. A .on-Partisan Division Among the Senators Meets With Favor. Employes of tho Bonato at Lour Tears Expcrloucc, irrespective ot Politics, , to be Listed nml Charged up to the Senate as a llody. Washington, March 20. The demo cratic members of tho senate held a caucus Thursday afternoon, at tho ad journment of the senate, for the pur pose of discussing tho question of pa tronage. The proposition upon which Senator Gorman, representing tho democrats, and Senator Elkins, rep resenting tho republicans, havo been working for several weeks, was submitted o tho caucus and appeared to meet with favorablo consideration. This proposition provides for a non partisan distribution of tho paWonago equally among the ' 00 senator? who compose the body. There are about eighteen employes who, from long years of experience, havo becomo invaluable to tho senate and theso men will bo placed fn a list and charged up to tho senate as a body. Thc-other places will then bo distributed equally. There were ten democratic senators who ceased to bo members of the senate f with the last session, and their successors havo no one in office through their influence. Tho same can bo said of tho new repub lican senators. Of course a revision of this sort means that some of tho employes will hnvo to go, and thoy will probably be'those whoso senators havo lost thciijjseats, and who are, therefore, no longer with senatorial backing. Tho whole sub ject, after discussion, was loft to tho steering committee The committee will confer with similar committee for tho republicans and after a caucus it is believed tho whole matter will bo set tled on tho basis herein indicated. No other subject was brought up in tho caucus. , Morton OclORntcs Selected. Ogdknsbubg, N. Y., March 20. At tho 22d district republican convention held at Potsdam Thursday, Hon. Win, L.

' Ambassador Bayard Censured by the House of Representatives For Certain Utterances in Speeches at Boston, Eng., and Edinburgh. Tho Resolution Passes the House, After Two Days' Debate, by a Vote ot 180, Yeas to 71 Kays The Following Is a Full Text of tho Resolutions. Washington, March 20. The houso Friday again proceeded immediately after the reading of tho journal to con sider tho resolutions censuring Mr. Bayard, ambassador to London, for his speeches at Boston and Edinburgh. After debate the resolutions wcro passed by a voto of 108 to 71. Tho following is tho text of tho reso lutions regarding Ambassador Bayard, reported February 25, from tho com mlttco on foreign affairs. Whorcas. Thomas F. Bayard, ambassador of tho United States to Groat Britain, said In a publio speech delivered In Boston, England, on August S, 1805. as follows: ' Ho (tho president ot tho United States) stands lu tho midst of a strong, soU-confldent, and ottcn times vlolont peoplo men who seek to liavn thnlr nwn wnv -nml T toll von nlntnlv that It takes a real man to govern tho peoplo. of tho United States. Whcrqas, Thomas F. Bayard, ambassador of tho United States to Great Britain said lu a publio speech delivered In Edinburgh, Scot land, on November 7. U05, as follows: "In my own country I havo witnessed tho In satiable growth ot that form ot state socialism styled 'protection' which I boltovo has dono more to foster class legislation and create inequality ot fortune, to corrupt publio ltfo, to banish men of Independent mind and character from public councils, to loner tho tone of national representation, blunt publio conscience, crcato falso standards in the popular mind, divorco ethics from politics and placo politics upon tho low level of a mercenary scramblo than any other single cause. It. ff.hn cnlfl nnllftv nt nrnfonllnn Vino mlipat. tatingly allied Itself with eveiy policy which tends to commercial isolation, dangerously do- pletcs tho troasury, and saps the popular con' soionco by schemes of corrupting favor and largcsso to sroclal classes whose support Is thoroby attracted. Thus it has dono so much to throw legislation Into tho political market, where Jobbers and charterers take tho place ot statesmen;" therefore, bo It Hesolved, that it is tho senso ot tho houso of representatives that Thomas P. Bayard, ambassador of the United Statos to Great Britain, in publicly using the languago abovo Quoted has committed an offense against dip lomatic propriety and an abuso of the priv ileges of his oxaltcd position, which should make him tho representative ot tho wholo country and not of any political party. Such utterances nro whol ly inconsistent with that prudent deltcato and scrupulous reservo which he, himself, while secretary of state, enjoined upon nil diplomatic agents of the Unltod States In ono speech ho affronts tho great body of his Countrymen who boliovo in tho policy of pro tection. In the other speech ho offends all his countrymen who beliovo that Amoricans are capablo of self government. Therefore, as tho immediate ropreseetativo of tho American peoplo, and in their name, wo condemn and consuro the said utterances of Thomas F. Bayard. Hesolved further, that in tho opinion of tho houso of representatives publio speeohes by our diplomatic Or consular officers abroad, which display partisanship, or which condemn any political party, or part? policy, or organ ization of citizens in tho United States, are In dlrcllctlon of tho duty of such officers, Impair their usefulness as publio servants, anddimln Isn the confidence whloh they should and may command at homo and abroad. The vote was mainly along political lines, tho republicans voting yea and tho democrats nay. The populists sup ported tho resolution. Tho following republicans voted against tho resolution: Baker (Md.), Cook (111.), Draper (Mass.), Pitney (N. J.),and Willis (Del.) 5.

A call of tho senate was had in order to give time for Mr. Sherman to return to the chamber, and 00 senators re sponded - In tho meantime Mr. Sherman re turned and he expressed tho hope that the motion to adjourn over would not be agreed to unless there was first an agreement reported as to a time for taking a voto on the Cuban resolutions, I To that proposition a strong objec tion was made by Mr. Halo (Hep., Me.) on the ground that two-thirds of tho time occupied in tho Cuban discussion had been occupied by tho members of the committee on foreign relations or those who sympathized with their re port, and that theio were many sena tors who desired to be heard on tho other side of tho question. Tho vote was taken on Mr. Gormon's motion and it was agreed to. Yeas, 42; nays, 22. SOLDIERS FIGHT. i. J" " ,,",I,?.c"tttlI'r,"'a:r.
