No Arrests Yet Reported in
Cases Against Minneapo
lis Conspirators.
"I had supposed, sir, that I was con
versing with a gentleman, not with a
blackguard." The above sentence was
addressed to F. G. Winston, of the firm
of Winston Bros., railway contractors,
by Frederick Driscoll Sr. as the two, in
company with President Charles Nich
ols, of the Minnesota Loan and Deben
ture company, stood together in the
business office of the Pioneer Press
yesterday afternoon. Having delivered
himself of the above remark in a coolly
deliberate voice, Mr. Driscoll lit a cigar
and turned his back upon the South
erner, and stalked away to a cable car,
the advent of which he had been await
ing when the dispute to be described
arose. Winston glared after him for a
moment, then gathered up his cane and
papers and departed by another door.
The scene given above was the final act
in the harmless drama which had been
witnessed by a number of persons who
knew nothing about the causes leading
to its production.
Messrs. Driscoll and Nichols were
talking in the lower office of the build
ing, as previously stated, when Mr.
Winston entered. He had under one
arm a bundle of papers and a cane, aud
as soon as he saw Mr. Driscoll he ap
roached and remarked, in an excited
manner, that a statement the paper had
recently made, setting forth that he had
furnished the names of 300 workmen
employed by him in the construction of
a railway in Virginia for enumeration
as residents of Minneapolis, had not
been sufficiently retracted. Mr. Driscoll
replied that he was not the editor of the
paper, and uot responsible for matter
appearing in its news columns.
"You promised . that a retraction
Bhould be made," said Winston, becom
ing greatly excited and gesticulating
wildly with his disengaged arm.
"I promised nothing like that," re
flied Driscoll. "What 1 said was that
would tell Mr. Wheelock about the
matter and that h • would probably act
In it, as I believe he did."
Thie explanation did not satisfy Win
ston, who continued to denounce the
paper and its editors in a loud voice.
This went ou for some moments, until
suddenly, and without the least warn
ing, the contractor swung his right
hand heavily on Mr. Driscoll's jaw, and
seemed bent on cleaning out the office,
when John Jackson, Driscoll's stepson,
who had overheard tho altercation,
stepped into the office, and, seizing
Winston, held him with a grip
of iron until he became less violent.
Mr. Driscoll made no effort to return
the blow. After having been struck he
took a cigar from his pocket, lit it with
deliberate coolness, and, having in
formed Winston in a voice perfectly
modulated that he might expect to hear
from him anon, he turned on his heel.
The affair created no little excitement
in the vicinity, though there were no
evidences of a combat, Mr. Driscoll
bearing no mark, however light, of the
Mr. Driscoll refused to say anything
with regard to the fracas.
Gossip as to the Commissioner
Who Will Swear Out Arrests.
"I have asked to be relieved," said
Eugene Hay yesterday. To a man up a
tree it would seem that he would now
be standing in a more enviable position
had he "asked to be relieved" at the
very incipiency of the trouble. He
surely would have made friends, and he
would have challenged the respect of
the citizens of St. Paul, at least. It
could not have been urged against him,
as it has been, that he persisted because
of his bias on account of his residence
In Minneapolis.
But, as was stated in these columns
yesterday, Hon. George N. Baxter will
be prosecutor in chief, despite the
stupid declarations of the Minneapolis
Tribune that Hay is to prosecute and
Baxter is to assist. Mr. Baxter was not
in the city yesterday. He was engaged
in trying a law suit in Southern Minne
sota, but he will come up to-day. It is
likely that warrants will be issued this
afternoon for the arrest of the parties
implicated. Mr. Baxter has said that
he will advise, However, that no action
be brought unless he is satisfied that a
crime has been committed, and he will
first inspect the mass of evidence that
has been gathered. Inspector Boudinot,
Detective Mason and Mr. Lawler are the
people who will lay the facts before him.
Inasmuch as these facts were sufficient
to convince Attorney General Miller
and Acting Attorney General Taft that
a conspiracy had actually been commit
ted, there can be no doubt as to Mr.
Baxter's conclusions.
Mr. Hay is particularly anxious that
the cases be brought before Commis
sioner Morey, ot Winona, as is the coun
sel for the defense, but it is not at all
certain that the warrants will be made
returnable before him. Mr. Baxter, as
in other matteis pertaining to the meth
ods of tiie prosecution, will have the say
in this. He can have them, for illustra
tion, made returnable before Commis
sioner Tillotson. of Moorhead, or they
may come directly before Judge Nelson,
of the United States circuit court, or
before the United States grand jury,
indeed, there is talk among the influen
tial citizens of petitioning Judge Nel
son to sit. In any of these possible
events the interests of either party
cannot suffer. They are all eminent
magistrates, who are spoken of in the.
highest terms by the lawyers of the
state. Mr. Hay said yesterday that he
believed Commissioner Morey will hear
the cases, and that he will come to St.
Paul for the purpose. Judge McCaf
ferty has no desire to be further mixed
up in the Imbroglio, although he is de
termined at all times to exercise the
rights of his office. Commissioner
Spencer, before whom Mr. Hay was so
resolute in his attempts to have the
bearing in the fraud cases transferred,
has stated that he does not wish to sit;
but Conimissioner Tighe, it is under
stood, is willing to undertake the task.
He has announced to his friends that
$ie has refrained from reading the testi
mony and the published statements in
order that he might in no possible way
become prejudiced.
Why Baxter Was Chosen to Super-
sede Hay.
It was mainly through the special
efforts of Hon. D. W. Lawler that Mr.
Baxter was chosen as prosecutor for the
government. Mr. Lawler's principal
mission was to take the case out of the
control of Mr. Hay, and he argued elo
quently for Mr. Baxter, and the end
was brought about. It was Mr. Lawler
who gave Mr. Baxter the positive as
surance Monday, by wire, that he was
to take charge of the case.
Mr. Lawler will arrive home on the
morning train, and he will have a con
ference with Mr. Baxter this forenoon.
Judge Flandrau, of the citizens'com
mittee, is of the opinion that "Othello's
occupation's gone." He says the object
for which the executive committee was
appointed has been entirely encom
passed, and he knows of nothing more
to be done by the committee. The
primary objects were to first secure an
order for the arrests for conspiracy
from the federal department of justice,
and next to take the prosecution out of
Mr. Hay's hands. Nothing more was
sought, and Judge Flandrau is cog
nizant of no need for another meeting
by the citizens.
An Item Which the Minneapolis
Tribune Might Quote.
The New York Times and Chicago
Tribune having made guesses on the
population of Minneapolis that please
the Minneapolis Tribune, other papers
are taking a hand. Here is one the
Tribune will not quote, taken from the
Pittsburg Dispatch:
Hon. James G. Wyman, mayor of Alle
gheny, yesterday af lernoon said : "Of course,
now that the city has over 100,000 inhabit
ants, it will come under the second-class
government, and that means the creation of
new offices, which wili increase the ex
penses of the city, but Allegheny does not
expend nearly as much as other cities of
less size. Take Minneapolis, for instance,
which has thirteen street commissioners at
comfortable salaries. That city does not ap
proach Allegheny in the number of inhab
itants, aud surely we can afford the addition
of a few new offices. "_
A Ne'er-Do- Well Shot by an Ex-
Newbcroh, N. V., July I.— This city
was the scene of intense excitement to
night. George.alias Tony Sarvis,a young
criminal charged with innumerable
crimes committed In this vicinity, and
for whose capture a reward of $100 was
offered, was shot and fatally wounded
by John Leveson, who recently resigned
from the police force of this city. On
Sunday night last two daring highway
robberies were committed in the streets
of Newburg. and by three masked men.
It was believed that Sarvis was one of
the robbers, and. as there was a war
rant standing against him for shooting
at a police officer recently, the
marshal of the city decided to
offer a reward of $100 for his
capture. Leveson, knowing that Sarvis
was in the city, made an attempt to cap
ture him to-night. When the two men
met shots were exchanged. Leveson
was shot in both legs, and one of the
bullets is still embedded In the liesh.
Sarvis was shot in the lower part of the
body, and also in the left hand. It
is believed that he may die. The
coroner has taken his ante-mortem
statement. "Tony" Sarvis has
long been a desperate fellow. He
has been identfied with a gang of crim
inals known here as the "Bridge ban
dits." This gang has been guilty of
almost every conceivable crime. "Tony"
was at one time known as the king of
the bridge bandits. He has served time
in state prison for burglary.

Out of Respect to His
The Widow Lifts the Veil

Senator Turpie's Eloquent
Panegyric Supplemented
by Gov. Hill.
Indianapolis, Ind., July I.— The
capital city of the Hoosier state, and the
home of the president of the republic,
did honor to-day to the memory of one
of her favorite sons whose notable
career as a statesman was cut short just
as his life's work had been rewarded
with the second highest office in the
gift of the American people. Conspicu
ous as Thomas A. Hendricks had been
in his lifetime in the councils of one
political party, there were no politics in
the event of to-day. The business
houses and private residences of the
most earnest supporters of the party in
power, aud the warmest friends of
President Harrison, were decorated just
as profusely and with as much taste as
those of their political opponents, and
in the imposing street demonstration
Republicans marched with Democrats,
and Prohibitionists with Mugwumps.
No one party was represented in
the tens of thousand of dollars
that have poured in from every state
and territory of the Union toward the
erection of the magnificent work of art
that adorns the state house grounds,
and political differences were forgotten
in the salvos of applause that greeted
the venerable relict of the deceased vice
president as with trembling hand she
pulled the rope and exposed to public
view the marble features of
Her Illustrious Consort.
It was the tribute of a city and a state
to the citizen, the American — the man
rather than the politician or statesman.
It was a red-hot day. From the moment
that "Old Sol" poked his head from
above the horizon It was apparent that
he intended to outdo his record of the
past six days. There was not the slight
est suspicion of a breeze to modify tho
terrible visitation. But the crowds of
men and women that began to pour out
of the union depot almost with break of
day did not seem to mind It. They took
the street's shady side, when they could
find any, and tried to look cool and
happy, even If they did not feel it. All
the roads centering in or passing
through the city had provided for a
heavy inpour by putting on special
trains, and they found their facilities
taxed to the utmost. In some of the
trains of ten or twelve car 9 the people
were packed like sardines,and for hours
right ud to noon the big depot discharged
a steady stream of perspiring humanity
into Illinois street. The local committee
had provided 20,000 silk badges with a
bust cut of Hendricks and appropriate
letter press, but the supply was soon ex
hausted, and even if there had been
tviyce as many there would not have
been sufficient to go round. To many
of the visitors the Bates, Grand and
Denison hotels, where Govs. Hill, Camp
bell and Francis were respectively quar
tered, were the
Great Centers of Attraction
and they besieged the rotundas and the
street outside in the hope of getting a
view of the distinguished visitors,
and maybe a speech. In the latter,
however, they were disappointed. The
three chief executives drove to the
state house shortly after 10 o'clock, and
after being introduced to each other by
Gov. Hovey in his private parlors, held
an informal reception for a couple of
hours. Meanwhile the various divis
ions of the para c had begun to form at
designated rendezvous, and at 1 o'clock,
when Chief Marshal Gen. Fred Knef
ler was satisfied that all was in readi
ness, the signal was given by the firing
of seven euns by the veterans stationed
at the north side of the court house
square, and the head of the column
moved. The metropolitan police, under
command of Supt. Travis, led the way,
with the chief marshal and staff
and mounted escort dose in the
rear. The First division, com
manded by Col. W. J. McKee, was
made up of the Second regiment in
fautry, Indiana Legion, the Indianap
olis Light Artillery battery, the Knights
of Pythias and the Knights of Honor,
and the uniforms of the military, with
the gay plumage and regalia of the civ
ilians combined to present a brilliant
spectacle. The second division was led
by the Hendricks club of Indianapolis,
with J. B. Curtis commanding. Its
members marched in a square as special
escort to the carriage containing Mrs.
Hendricks, President Rand, of the
monument association, and Senator
T urpie, the orator of the day. One
Continuous Volley of Cheers
greeted the venerable widow as the
carriage moved slowly from block to
block, and Mrs. Handricks, who looked
somewhat pale, but fully composed,
Hiiiiled and bowed her thanks to the
right and left. Behind the carriage
in columns of fours, came the members
of the Young Men's Gray club.Cleveland
club and Bynum club, all of In
dianapolis. In the third division,
commanded by James R. Carnahan,was
the visiting clubs from Indiana and
other states. Following these in the
Fourth division were carria:es, four
abreast, containing Govs. Hill, Camp
bell, Franois and Hovey, and their par
ties. The committees of the monument
association, board of trade and com
mercial club, and the judiciary, state,
county and city officials. The Fifth
division was composed of veteran sol
diers' organizations, and the sixth and
last of the city and ward organizations
of Indianapoiis. The sidewalks along
the line of march were packed with peo
ple, who heartily cheered the visiting
governors, the clubs from abroad and
the other features of the parade that ex
cited their enthusiasm. Each division
had its band of music; and the number
less flags, banners and other devices
that were carried tended to complete a
magnificent ensemble. It was 2
o'clock despite the fact that, ow
ing to the extreme heat, the
route had been shortened, before
the head of the procession reached the
state house grounds. Here almost as
far as the eye could reach the spectators
were crowded. From the monument a
platform had been erected tor the speak
ers and distinguished guests, while to
the right was an amphitheater filled
with 500 school children, the majority
Little Girls In White.
Company D, of the Indianapolis light
Infantry, was posted around the monu
ment, while the Hendricks' club formed
a square around the lower base. The
appearance of the carriage with Mrs.
Hendricks and the visiting governors
was the signal for the tiring of a salute
of nine guns by the light artillery bat
tery, and the exercises were forthwith
inaugurated with an overture by the
band. Then the school children's cho
rus, led by Prof. Henry M. Butter,
sang "The Model Republic" with su
perb effect. Gov. A. P. Hovey called the
gathering to order In a few words, ex
tending a hearty welcome to the visitors
from abroad, and paying a brief tribute
to the memory of the man they had met
to honor. He concluded by calling
Hon. Frederick Rand, president of the
monument association, as presiding
officer. The latter in turn introduced
Rev. Joseph Jenks. of St. Paul's church,
who led the gathering in prayer. After
a selection by the Hendricks" club band
President Rand made a succinct histor
ical statement, narrating the circum
stances under which the movement for
the monument had originated, the
amounts contributed by the several
states and the total expenditures. The
Hymn "America" was then sung by the
chorus and audience. As the last notes
died away Mrs. Hendricks rose and
gently pulled the rope, causing the can
vas to recede and discovering the life
sized statue that
Crowned the Pedestal.
Applause loud and prolonged greeted
the successful culmination of the enter
prise, while, to add to the din, a salute
of nine guns, one for each letter of the
name "Hendricks," was fired by the
battery, and "Columbia" was rendered
by the combined bands. When silence
had once more been restored the dedi
catory ode "Heudricks," written by
James Whitcomb Riley, was impres
sively rendered by Prof. Fisher, of
Hanover college.

Following this, "The New National
Hymn" was rendered by the male cho
rus, and "The Battle Hymn of the Re
public" by the school children. Sena
tor Turpie, on rising to deliver the ora
tion of the day, was received with loud
aud prolonged cheers. Prefacing his
remarks with a reference to the earlier
years of the last century, when the
knightly and chivalrous Jean Baptiste
Bissot, Sieur de Vincennes, lost his life
in battle with the Indians leaving his
name to the old post upon the Wabash.
The orator gave a lengthy sketch of the
deceased statesman. His parents, he
said, belonged to the pure high-hearted
patrician race of the frontier, \yell
worthy to be the founders of cities,
states and communities. The father
was a farmer, owner of the lands he
tilled, builder also of the house he first
lived in, while the son, afterward
the vice president of this great
nation, had, when grown to sufficient
age taken part in the labors of the field
and household. Many years afterward,
in the meridian of his career, he pleas
antly recalled the time when he used
to see the miller, all white with dust,
standing in the door of his mill while
as a boy he waited patiently until the
sack with grist in it was adjusted to
the horse's back for his homeward ride.
The orator referred to the first appear
ance of the deceased vice president in
public life as a representative from the
county of Shelby in the general as
sembly, and in which caoacity he left
upon the minds of his colleagues such
an opinion of his abilities as laid the
foundation of that respect and esteem
in which he always continued to be held
by them and their constituencies. A
touching reference was made to Mr.
Hendricks' marriage to Miss Eliza C.
Morgan, of North Bend, 0., in 1845, aud
all eyes for the moment were
Directed Towards the Widow
of the deceased, who bowed her head.
Coming down to war times, the orator
said that, as a senator, Mr. Heudricks
constantly acted and voted in aid of the
government in every measure looking
to the suppression of armed insurrec
tions against its authority, although he
always reserved the right as a senator
freely to discuss the civil policy of the
administration. His suggestions and
amendments to the pending bills for the
maintai nance of the national forces
then in the field were so timely, useful
and important as frequently to com
mand the approval of the majority of
the senators politically adverse to his
views. At the conclusion of the civil
war, in that day which saw the surren
der of the Confederate forces, there
came the question as to what disposi
tion should be made of the states
whose people had taken part
In the insurrection designed to
subvert the government." This
grave problem was presented to
Hendricks in the midst of his term as
senator; while in the whole range of
former legislation and jurisprudence
there was no precedent for the solution
thereof. Under the policy in vogue
among the ancient republics during
their rise and progress for centuries.the
conquered inhabitants of a revolting
state or province were treated in all re
spects as foreign enemies. The princi
pal powers of modern Europe had pur
sued a similar course. The dealings of
the British government with insurgent
subjects, with rebellions in England,
Scotland, lreland ana elsewhere afforded
only a long recital of proscription, at
tainder, confiscations and executions—
the severest pains, fines and forfeitures
ot a merciless penal code. Here were
no doubt precedents, but none for
the senator from Indiana, toward
whom at this time every eye was
turned as upon one known to
be unfust to the interest of no section,
devoted to the well-being of^all. The
problem was peculiarly American, only
to be solved by a wise and comprehen
sive consideration of the laws, the in
stitutional theories, political traditions
and history of oar own states and peo
ple. In this crisis of deliberation, he
stood, upon his side, almost alone. The
orator continued to review the career of
the deceased as governor, private citi
zen and vice president, and in conclu
sion said: "He was truly a man of va
ried learning and attainmeDts.full, also,
of that wisdom borrowed from the
schools; patient, kindly, persistent,
brave, not distrustful of fortune, will
ing, for the cause which he espoused, to
put all men lawfully to the hazard,
and of a fixed fidelity to principle
which brooked in its ogurse neither de
spair nor discouragement. Faultlessly
discreet in conduct.equally undisturbed
by the clamor of dissent or favor,
with calm, clear, iutuitive discernment
in the adaptation of means most excel
lent to the noblest ends, with almost
marvelous prevision of effects 5 though
he purposed more, yet he accomplished
much for his country's welfare. Had
be lived in the age of classic antiquity,
an apotheosis might have followed his
demise. In one supremely critical junc
ture or our "national affairs, for many
days, like Fabius of old, he walked aud
safely kept the field of peril, meriting in
this the simple yet august decree of the
conscript lathers: "He hath deserved
well of the republic." We unveil here
to-day this monumental figure remind
ing us of his life and presence; in the
goodly fellowship of these storied em
blems of the administration of law, and
of history, wherein he bore so large%
part. His fame depends upon material
yet more enduring, the fabric of his
words and works, ennobled by
the patriotic aims to which they re
lated. For it may well be believed
there was something about such a one
of that within, which passeth show. He
had genius— the eenius of statesman
ship; alike befitting the majestic as
semblies and the highest councils of a
free people. To genius belongs the
hereafter. In the vast halls of the fut
ure its greetings are heard, its audi
ences are held; its posterity throngs to
the reception. In their midst it moves
clad with a radiant nimbus of glory,
and neither time, nor chance, nor
change, nor things past or present, nor
things to come, of wiiatever moment,
may dim or tarnish
Its Unfading Splendor.
Music followed Senator Turpie's ora
tion, and the Bishop of Vincennes was
about to be introduced to pronounce the
benediction when there were loud calls
for Gov. Hill. He was slow to respond,
and the cries were redoubled. When
he was escorted to the platform the ap
plause was long and hearty. He deliv
ered an eloquent address eulogistic of
Thomas A. Hendricks and his services
to the nation. When the speaker re
sumed his seat and the cheering had
subsided. Gov. Campbell was called for.
He spoke briefly, and brief speeches
were made by Gov. Francis, of Missou
ri, and ex-Gov. Gray, and then the ben
ediction was pronounced. Numerous
letters were received from prominent
Americans who nad been invited to at
tend the ceremonies. Gov. Hill and
Gen. Sickles paid a long visit
to Mrs. Hendricks at her residence to
day. She presented the governor with
a gold cane, which had been given to
Gov. Hendricks by the state officers in
1870, and Gen. Sickles received a cane
which had been received from the
Shelby connty Democracy in the fifties.
In the course of the visit Gen. Sickles
is said to have remarked that Cleveland
had been unfortunate in giving offense
to old line Democrats and taking up
with new men, and that the ex-presi
dent had taken up with the civil service
reformers a little prematurely before
he knew much about them. Whereat
Mrs. Hendricks went to Gov. Hill's
side, and, seizing his hand, remarked:
"Governor, I hope you will get there."
Gov. Hill spoke to-night before the
Hendricks club at their rooms on the
political issues of the day.

gate the amount of • $40,000 there
for; that the testimony of some
of these men was au insult to the house;
that no legislation predicated upon this
influence can be enacted without niak
iuajevery member who votes for it a
party to the corruption. It goes on to
say that the legislature should defeat
the measure, and an effort to influence
the speaker to pack the committee on
street railways was an affront to him
aud to the house. It declares that the
committee was unwarrantably inter
fered with and that the courts have de
clared that such private interviews as
the president of the coniDany sought
with members, until all means were ex
hausted, were improper. If the prodi
gal hospitality of the West End to
ward members of the legislature is
to be allowed, impartial legislation is at
an end. It recites that inordinate ex
penditure was made to advertise the
company, to the point of corrupting the
press and misleading the public confi
dence on the Impartiality of the news
columns. The resolution concludes:
"This company and its officers have
used corrupt methods because they
chose them, and have chosen to carry
them to a limit never before reached in
this commonwealth, upon which they
have brought disgrace." A hot debate
followed. Representative Kittridge, of
Boston, asserted that the report was not
a whitewash and demanded an apology
of Mr. Williams for formulating
the charges. The house finally adopted
the committee's report and approved its
findings, 134 to 61.

Auspicious Opening of the Rocky
Mountain Carnival.
Ogdkn, Utah July I.— The Rocky
Mountain carnival began to-day, the
royal train arriving shortly before noon
from the ea9t amid the booming of can
non and the cheers of the people. Rex.
accompanied by a brilliant retinue and
escorted by the Louisiana Rifles, was
received by the mayor and tendered the
keys of the city. Speeches of welcome
were made by Mayor Kierel and Gov.
Thomas, and responses by members of
the royal party. Hon. W. G.Pierson.on
behalf of the order of Monte Cristo, de
livered the oration of . the day. This
evening there was a grand banquet in
the carnival palace and during the
afternoon a procession of various civic
and military organizations, followed by
a display by a large company of cow
boys. To-night Rex was crowned king
of "the Monte Cristos with elaborate
ceremonies, after which the cowboys
took possession of the palace for their
grand ball. The weather is superb.

Uncle Sam Reduces His Bond
ed Indebtedness by Two
Score Millions.
Washington, July I.— The senate
this morning passed the senate bill to
authorize the leasing of school lands in
Oklahoma. Mr. Plumb explained the
bill. The leases are not to be for a
longer period than five years, and the
necessity for the bill arises out of the
fact that -homesteaders have settled
upon these lands not knowing that they
were school lands, and that special
agents from the general land office have
been serving notice on the settlers to
remove from the lands immediately.
Mr. Dawes, from the conference com
mittee on the legislative bill, reported
that the committee had been unable
to agree with the house conferees, the
particular item of disagreement being
that of clerks for senators and their
compensation. He doubted if any agree
ment could be readied on anything but
the house bill. After some discussion
a new conference was ordered. A re
port of the conference committee on the
District of Columbia appropriation bill
was presented and discussed, the sub
ject being street railroad fares in the
District of Columbia. The report was
disagreed to, and a new conference com
mittee appointed. A deficiency bill for
the pay and mileage of senators was re
ported and passed. A conference was
ordered on the agricultural appro
priation bill. The Idaho bill was
taken up, and Mr. Vance made a
long speech in opposition to the bill.
He claimed that the proper constitu
tional steps by the people of Idaho for
admission to statehood had not been
taken, and that the territory did not
have a population sufficiently large to
entitle it to admission to the Union. At
the close of Mr. Vance's speech in op
position to the Idaho bill, the bill was
passed without division. The confer
ence committee on the legislative ap
propriation bill reported that the house
refused to agree to a senate amendment,
and declined further conference. The
only alternative was a failure of the bill
or a recession on the Dart
of the senate. Mr. Dawes moved
that the senate recede, and that
motion led to a long discussion on the
subject of clerks and compensation.
The senate finally refused to recede.
This means that unless the house or
senate reconsiders its action of to-day,
the legislative bill will fail and a new
legislative bill will have to be prepared
and passed. Mr. Hiscoc-k moved a re
consideratiou of the vote by which the
senate determined on action, and that
motion is now pending. Mr. Reagan
addressed the senate on his bill to pre
vent transportation of merchandise in
bond through the ports and territories
of the United States into the Republic
of Mexico, and to restore the privilege
whenever the Zona Libre has been
abolished. After a short secret session
the senate at 5 o : clock adjourned till to
The Blair Educational Bill Bobs
Up in the House.
Washington, July I,— Mr. O'Don
nell. of Michigan, chairman of the
house committee on education, to-day
submitted to the house a report recom
mending the passage of the bill intro
duced in the house by Mr. Cheatham, of
North Carolina, to aid in the establish
ment and temporary support of common
schools, better known as the Blair edu
cational bill. Mr. O'Donnell, after re
ferring to the fact that a similar bill
had been passed by the senate three
times, aud that not one of the numer
ous educational bills introduced in the
house had even been reported back from
the committee, goes on to discuss the
illiteracy prevailing in many sections of
the country, and quotes statistics to
show the proportion of illiterate
persons to the total population. In con
clusion, the report says: "Commendable
progress has been made in many sec
tions in the way of educational encour
agement. It remains for the nation to
give that help needed. To withhold aid
now, to use the words of a distinguished
thinker of the South would be surrender
a well cultivated field and leve the gar
nered crop to decay." In his report
Mr. O'Donnell states that several mem
bers of the committee have reserved the
right to offer amendments or oppose the
passage of the bill.
President Harrison Champions
the Rights of Mexicans.
Washington, D. C, July I.— The
president to-day transmitted to congress
the correspondence between the depart
ment of state and the Mexican e-overn
ment concerning the rights of certain
Mexican citizens to have their claims to
lands in Arizona and New Mexico,
ceded to the United States by treaty,
adjusted and confirmed. '"The United
States,"says the president, "owes a duty
to Mexico to confirm to her citizens
those valid grants that were saved by
the treaty, and the lone delay "which has
atrended'tue discharge of this duty has
given just cause of complaint. The en
tire community where these large claims
exist, and indeed all of our people, are
interested in an early and final settle
ment of them. No greater incubus can
rest upon the energies of a people or the
development of a new country than that
resulting from unsettled land titles.
The necessity for legislation is so evi
dent and so urgent tnat I venture to ex
press the hope that relief will be given
at the present session of congress."
Representatives Tinker the Pro
posed Federal Election Law.
Washington, July I.— The house,
immediately after the reading of the
journal, resumed the debate on the fed
eral election bill, the pending amend
ment being that offered by Mr. Lehl
bach, of New Jersey, providing that the
chief supervisor of election for each
judicial district of the United States
shall take such action as is requisite to
secure such supervision in every con
gressional district as is provided by the
laws of the United States. Mr. Hol
man, of Indiana, contended that there
was no occasion for the enactment of
the proposed law. Every member who
had spoken had repudiated the bill as
far as his own district was concerned.
Mr. Taylor, of Illinois, said that
he wanted the law in his district, be
cause it was needed in Chicago, which
was iv a part of his district. There
never had been an election held in Chi
cii, r o in which there was not cheating
and illegal voting. He did not believe
it was needed in any other district in
Illinois. Mr. Springer, of Illinois, said
the Chicago election law had worked
satisfactorily. He denied the assertion
of Mr. Houk yesterday that in a contest
ed election report in the Forty-fifth con
gress he (Springer) had taken the very
position occupied by this bill. Mr. Hill,
of Illinois, opposed the amendment.
Mr. Stone, of Missouri, made a consti
tutional argument against the bill. He
asserted that its promoters were as
Guilty of High Treason
aa those who, thirty years ago. took up
arras against the government. Mr. Bu
chanan, of New Jersey, expressed re
gret that the amendment had been
made. Mr. Hemphill, ol' South Caro
lina, said that if the bill was so bad that
the gentlemen were afraid to vote lor its
general application, why were they
such cowards as to throw upon the peo
ple of a particular district the odium of
the law. Congress should take the re
sponsibility and not place it in the
hands of 50 or 100 men in any one dis
trict. The amendment was rejected
yeas, 132; nays, 138. Mr. Ilemphill of
fered an amendment eliminating from
the bill the provision for tlie United
states boards of canvass, and providing
that from the returns of the supervis
ors, the chief supervisor shall tabulate
and forward to the speaker of the house
to be submitted by him to the house,
the results appearing therefrom in
each congressional district under his
jurisdiction in which this act has been
in force. Mr. Buckalew. of Pennsyl
vania, favored the amendment as pre
serving a system whteh iik substance
had always been in force, and under
which (with very tew exceptions) there
had been no complaint of the action
of state authorities. Mr. Breckinridtfe,
of Kentucky, said that the bill put it in
the power of the United States courts
to substantially control the house of
representatives. Mr. McComas, of
Maryland, opposed the amendment and
favored the bill as in the interest of free
and fair elections. Mr. Mills, of Texas,
pointed out the
Dangers Which IWisht Arise
from the application of the law. Sup
pose the house was Democratic by
twenty-five majority, and was so shown
by the" ceitificates'of the various gov
ernors; suppose the supervisors certi
fied twenty-live majority the other way
and the clerk of the house acted upon
this certificate, what would be the re
sult? Gentlemen ought not to forget
that the Anglo-Saxon race was
jealous of its rights, and never counted
the cost of holding and asserting them.
Mr. Kerr, of lowa, said it was the duty
of the house to see to it that the people
of the country were represented by the
men whom il»ey had, in fact, elected to
represent them. Mr. Caruth, of Ken
tucky, said that he had heard a
good deal about a free ballot
and a fair count. According
to the Republican doctrine, "A free bal
lot is one that ele cts our ticket, and a
lair count is on that account certain."
He claimed that the Republican party
had done nothing for the negro. After
some discussion this amendment was
adopted, yeaa 140, nays 134, Messrs.
Frank, Harrner, Lelhbacb and Lin vot
ing with the Democrats in the affirma
tive. Mr. Tucker, of Virginia, offered
an amendment that when application
for a supervision is made, the chief su
pervisor shall lay the application before
the circuit court, leaving the .court to
decide after a hearing, whether to
grant the application. Pending a vote
on this amendment, the house at
5 o'clock took a recess till Bp. in.
Mr. Peters, of Kansas, acted as speaker
pro tern of the evening session. Mr.
Doekery of Missouri, denounced the
bill as being founded on sectional hat
red. Mr. Kilgore, of Texas, character
ized it as a partisan measure. After
further debate the house at 11:15 ad

Six Hnndred Sewer Men Want

Special to the Globe.
Superior, Wis., July I.— Acting on
orders issued at a secret meeting held
recently, (500 sewer laborers, street men,
excavators and lumber yard men struck
this morning, and are now out. All
public work in the* city is at a stand
still, and the fight promises to be a hard
one. The bricklayers and masons are
the only ones who are not out, and it ia
probabb they will co out to-morrow.
The atrike began this morning, when
thirty laborers employed by Forrestnl
Bros, on Winter street sewer demanded
an increase from $1.75 to 12 pur day.
The demand was refused, and the men
at once proceeded to Bay street and
Curnmings avenue and induced the re
mainder of Forrestal's men. nearly 200
in number, to go on strike. Encouraged
by their success in getting so large a
number together, the crowd moved
on toward other streets where
similar work was in progress. Rhodes
& Rogers' works, with about 100 men,
and Kirkland & Starkey's, with about
seventy men, were also successfully
visited. At noon the strikers reached
Banks avenue, where John Gleason &
Son are building a sewer. This firm had
about sixty-five men employed, and the
foreman cave the men their time. Con
tractor Sutton's men, on Twelfth street
grading, went out, and all public work
at the west end of town was stopped.
The bricklayers and tenders are tha
only meu who did not leave the sewera
this afternoon. They quit to-night.
Rhodes & Rogers state that their men
are ready to go to work to-morrow
morning at the old price. The con
tractors with one accord declare that
they cannot afford and will not pay to
exceed $1.75 per day. The strikers were
very orderly, and except where shovels
were taken away from workmen there
was no violence. Citizens are favorable
to the strikers, but will permit of no
lawlessness. Unless the matter is set
tled by noon to-morrow serious trouble
is feared. The strikers are quiet and
orderly to-night. In case they begin
drinking, Mayor Patterson will close
every saloon in the city.
This evening the contractors had a
meeting and by unanimous vote de
cided not to eive in to the strikers.
This makes certain a long, hard fight,
and it is feared that serious trouble will
follow to morrow unless considerable
diplomacy is used.
Cashier Baker Claims He Did Not
Get a Fair Show.
Special to the Globe.
Ashland, Wis.. July I.— Papers in
the motion for a new trial in the Baker
case were filed to-day. Besides the
usual representations, Baker's attorneys
claim that the court erred in not con
tinuing the case when Attorney Lennon
was assaulted by Deputy Sheriff Boyd,
officer of the court, and disabled; that
the jury was not properly drawn from
the fact that the list was never properly
certified; that the jury was furnished
with beer and whisky, and that part ot
the liquor was furnished by Deputy
Sheriff Boyd; lhat Jurors Brisley and
Nicholson were prejudiced against
Baker before any testimony was intro
duced, and that James G. Flanders, as
sisting the prosecution, never was ap
pointed by the court. The claims are
substantiated by many affidavits show
ing that some of the jurors declared
themselves for conviction after being
drawn on the jury and before testimony
for the defense had begun. Arguments
on the motion will be heard to-morrow,
and the motion will probably be denied,
and then it will be taken to the supreme
