SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO.
1 VOLUME 16. SEDALIA, MO., TUESDAY, JUSTE 24, 1884. OTMBEE 4, WASHINGTON. m a The Senate Engages Wordy Combat Over the Land Forfeiture Bill. A Very Short Day's Work in the House The Civil Service Bill. Appointments Confirmations Department Notes laid the rail- S EN ATE. Washington, June 21 The chair bffore the senate the bill amending Thurman act relative to the Pacific road. Senator Van Wyck desired this bill refer red to the committee on public lands rather than the committee on judiciary. It was with some surprise he had learned from the public press that the judiciary committee had resolved not to act on any bill of the kind this season. He supposd we should express our acknowledgment to the press for having given the senate this informa tion. It would naturally be supposed the committee of the senate would have made its report first to the senate itself as to whether it would not act, and particu larly when this conclusion had been reach ed after a conference with the railroad company. Senator Hoar said the Senator from Nebraska (VanWyck) was wholly mista ken, of course unintentionally so, as to the action of the committee. Senator VanWyck insisted that for twenty years the railroads had controlled the government as shown in his opinion, by the operations of the land department; opinions of the Attorney-General and some decisions of the supreme court. The Unio Pacific had finally dispensed with their old president and had got for a president, a very respectable gentleman, from Massa chusetts. That action may satisfy the committee on judiciary of the senate and may in their opinion justify the committee in postponing action on these Pacific rail roads, but it would not satisfy the people. As he understood the matter, the judiciary committee had resolved not to consider until December next the -questions in volved in the relation of railroads to the government. This was a prejudgment of the matter which the committee was not warranted in making, and he, Van Wyck, did not, therefore, want this bill referred to the committee on judiciary. Senator Garland said the special matter referred to by the press was a different matter to that covered by the bill from the house. The committee was in no way precluded from the consideration of that bill, but he could not enter into the details of the matter specifically alluded to. After some further discussion Senator Van Wyck withdrew his motion to refer the bill to the committee on public lands, and it was referred to the judiciary com mittee. Senator Allison, from the committee appropriations reported the legislative, ex ecutive and judicial appropriation bill and cave notice he would call it up for consid eration Monday or Tuesday next. On suggestion of Senator Plumb, sup ported bv Senators Sherman and Cullom, he consented to allow the Mexican pension bill to go over till Monday in order to take up the army appropriation bill the con sideration of which was -at once proceeded with. The bill was passed without giving rise to debate, and is substantially as rec omended by the committee on appropria tions. The committee of conference on the ship ping bill submitted its report, which was agreed to. On motion of Senator Coke, th j house bill granting the right of way through the Indian Territory to the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe railroad company was passed. Senator Hill called up the postal tele graph bill in order to secure a favorable position for it on Monday, but Senator Cullom objected to anything that would interfere with the consideration of the Mexican pension bill.

The legislative appropriation as reported by the senate appropriates $21,647,259, an increase over the house bill of $1,037,402, and a decrease from the estimates of $26, 042. The principal changes from the bill as agreed upon by the house are an in crease of $4,100,000 for salaries and ex penses of collectors and deputy collectors of internal revenue ; $136,000 for salaries of agents, survevors and storekeepers in the internal revenue service ; $610 for two additional associate justices for Dakota and an increase in the number of employ ees of the different branches of the govern ment from 7,202 to 7,759. This increase in employees includes 225 in the pension office and 90 in the general land office. The salaries for senators are also included in the increase and an appropriation of $24,000 is made for payment of their salaries UNFINISHED BUSINESS being the bill repealing the preemption and timber culture laws and amending the homestead Jaws vas then antaogniz?d, by Mr. Eaton, with the electoral count bill. The house refused, yeas, SO ; nays, 17, to consider the unfinished business. Mr. Slocum secured the floor and sub mitted a conference rpport upon the ship ping bill. The report was agreed to with out debate or division. The electoral count bill was then taken up and Mr. Hart addressed the house favor of the senate measure. Mr. Parker made a constitutional ment against the Eaton bill. Mr. Springer favored the Eaton bill, as serting it was safer to leave the decision of a disputpd presidential election to a joint committee of the senate and house than to a returning board or commission which might be provided in any state.

Irishmen interview ed here upon the proposed armed move ment on England including the use of bal loons from which to drop dynamite upon the cities of England as outlined m the cable dispatches yesterday, ridicules the proposition in every imaginable way. Jno. F. Scanlan summed it up by declaring it is evident some Milesian Munchausen is having a heap of fun on the other side. Col. Dan O. Sullivan, who was secretary for the America of the 1SG7 movement, said that no sane Irishman believes in armed invasion. The futility of such ef forts has been satisfactorily demonstrated ; besides, Stephens had announced himself as opposed to the dynamite pol'cy and could not have originated the plan. Pat Crowe, of Peoria, said Stephens once had an opportunity to lead an armed re bellion bu proved a coward and ran to ssve his own neck. He declares, however, that a ma- meeting of Irishmen will be held in tfys city during the period of the democratic convention to raise money for dynamite. Delighted and Enthusiastic Multitudes Present. Augusta, June 21. Early this morning the streets began to assume a lively ap pearance and long before the time for the committee appointed by the national con vention to notify James G. Blaine of his nomination lo the presidential candidacy of the republican party to perform that duty, a considerable crowd had collected around Augusta house to gszi with curios ity upon the members of the committee. THE CIRCUS BEING ALSO IN TOWN. brought out vast numbers of people who with the allied attractions of the national committee and sawdust ring seemed dispos posed to make the day a general holiday. Promptly at 11 o'clock the national com mittee ol notification proceeded in a body to Blaine's residence and were received by Mrs. Blaine. As the day was oppressively hot and the rooms of the mansion crowded almost to suffocation, it was suggested that the presentation address be made upon the lawn. Accordingly the committee ani guests proceeded to a well shaded portion of the grounds, where a semi-circle was formed and all present stood with uncov ered heads, making an impressive scene. The rustling of the spreading branches of the great elms and the buzzing of insects, was the only sound to disturb the stillness. When all were in readiness Mr. Blaine was escorted to the lawn, where he stood within the arch of the semi circle. GENERAL HENDERSON then stepped forward and presented the ad dress of the committee. Reading from a manuscript, he spoke as follows: Mr. Blaine, your nomination for presi dent of the United States by the national republican convention receatly as sembled in Chicago is already known to you. The gentlemen before you constituting the committee com posed of one member from each state and territory of the country, and one from the District of Columbia now come as THE ACCREDITED ORGAN of that conyention to give you a formal no tice of your nomination and to re quest your acceptance thereof. It is of cou;se known to you that besides your own several other names among the mot honored in the council of the repub lican party were presented by their friends as candidates for this nomination. Between your friends and the friends of the gentle men so justly entitled to the respect and confidence of their political associates, the contest W3S one of GENEROUS RIVALRY, free from equally free tice. At an ceedings of manifest that any taint of f-om reproach e?rly stage of the convention the republ : tn bitterness, of iujus the pro- it became states where aid must be invoked .n last to insure success to the ticket, earnestly desired your nomination. It was equ Sly manifest that the desire so earnertly expressed by the del egates of those states was but the truthful reflection of the irresistible popular de mand. It is not thought nor pretended that this demand had its origin in any ambitious desires of your own or in the or ganized work of your friends, but it was recognized to be what it truthfully is, A SPONTANEOUS EXPRESSION. by a free people of love and admiration of a cho-en leader. No nomination would have given satisfaction to every member of the party. This could not be expected in a country so extended in area and so va ried in interests. The nc initiation of Lin coln in 1S60 disappcinted so many hopes, and overthrew so many cherished ambi tious that for a short time the disaffection threatened to ripen into OPEN REVOLT in 1S72, the discontent was so pronounced as to impel large masses of the party to organize in opposition to its nominees and for many weeks after the nomination of Garfield in 1SS0. Defeat seemed inevita ble. In each case the shock of disappoint ment was followed by sober second thought. Individual prefeieuces grad ually yielded to convictions of public duty and the promptings of patriotism finally rose superior to the irritation and animosities of hour and the party in every trial has grown stronger in the face of threated danger, in lendering you the nomination, it gives us pleasure to re member the great measures which furnished CAUSES FOR TARTY CONGRATULATIONS by the late convention at Chicago, and which are now crystalized into the legisla tion of the country. Measures which have strengthened and dignified the nation, and while they elevated and advanced the people, have at all times and on all proper occasion received your earnest and valu able support. Jt was your good fortuue to aid in protecting the nation agaicst the ASSAULTS OF ARMED TREASON. you were present and helped to unloose the shackles of the slave; you assisted in placing a new guarantee of freedom in the federal constitution ; your voice was potent jn preserving the national faith, when false theories of finance would have blasted the national and individual prosperity. We kindly remember you as a fast friend of honest money, commercial integrity, and in all that pertains to the security and repose of capital, the dignity of labor and manhood, elevation and freedom of the people, tbe right oi the oppressed to demaud, and the duty of thejgovernnient to aflbrd protection. Your public acts have received the UNQUALIFIED ENDORSEMENT of popular approval. But we are not tin- minuiuj oi the lact that parties like indi viduals san not live entirely on the past, however splendid the record. The present is ever charged with immediate causes and the future presses on with new duties to perplexing responsibilities. Parties, inaivir.uHis, however, that 3re iree Irom Sharp Suicides. Kansas City, June 21. Isaac B. Sharp, of Wyandotte, Kansas, committed suicide at his home this morning bv shooting him self through the head. Ill health was the cause. The deceased was form rly circut judge and prominent in Kansas politics. I An evening dispatch says mat Isaac B. Sharp, a leading at torney of Wyandotte, committed suicide this morning by shooting himself through the head. 1 he deceased had been suffering more or less from ill health for some months and w:is seized witn a cerrebral aitectou last lhurday but afterward ral lied and this inorniug came to the break fast table apparently in his usual spirits. Upon leaving the table he went to his room and almost immediately after a pistol shot rang out. The judge's wife and son hastening to the room fosnd him seated in au arm chair, insensible and bleeding profusely from a bullet wound over the right ear. He did not regain conscious ness, and soon afterward expired. The act was seemingly unpremeditated as he left no message or explanation. Judge Sharp Iy entitled to the presumption of sincerity in their promises for the Juture among the promif.es made by the party in its late con vention at Chicago are ECONOMY AND PARTY ADMINISTRATION. Protection of citizjns, native and natur alized, at home and abroad, prompt restor ation of the navy; a wise reduction of the surplus revenues relieving the tax payer without injuring the laborer; t;ie preserva tion of public lands for actual settlers, im port duties when ne'eessary at all to be lev ied not for revenue only, but for the double purpose of revenue and protection; the reg ulation of internal commerce ; the settle ment of internal differences by peaceful ar bitration, but coupled with the reassertion and maintenance of the Monroe doctrine as interpreted by the fathers of the republic; perseverance in the good work of CIVIL SERVICE REFORM. to the end that the dangers to free institu tions which lurk in the power of official patronage may be wisely and effectually avoided. An honest currency, based on coin of intrinsic value, adding strength to the public credit and giving renewed vital ity to every branch of American industry. Mr. Blaine: during the last twenty-three years the republican parly has BUILT A NEW REPUBLIC A republic far more splendid than that originally designed by our fathers. As to proportions already grand they may yet be enlarged, its foundations may yet be strengthened and its columns adorned with beauty more resplendent still. To you as its architect in chief, will soon be assigned this grateful work. Blaine listened to Gee. Henderson's ad dress, STANDING UNDER AN ELM TREE, with his arms folded on his chest and his eyes usually cast down but at times wan dering about and scrutinizing the faces of the audience. When General Henderson had concluded speaking, Walker Blaine, the candidate's son, stepped forward and handed his father the manuscript of the ad dress in reply :o that of committee. MR- BLAINE THEN READ as follows: Mr. chairman and gentlemen of the national commiite : I receive, not without deep sensibility yjur tfficial no tice of the action of the national conven tion already brought to my knowledge through the public press, I appreciate more profoundly than I can express, the honor which is implied in my nomination for the presidency by the republican party of the nation speaking through the au thoratiye voice oi duly accredited delegates to be selected as a candidate by such an as semblage from amongst the eminent states men whose names were presented, fills me with embarrassment. I can only express my gratitude for so signal an honor, and my desire to prove worthy o.f the great trust reposed in me. IN ACCEPTING THE NOMINATION as I now do, I am impressed, I am also oppressed with a nse of the labor and re sponsibility which attaches to my position. The burden is light-ued, Lowever, by the host of earnest men who support my candi dacy, many of whom add, as does your hononble ommttlee, the cheer of personal friendship to the pledge of political fealty. A more formal accept ance will naturally be expected and will in due season be communicated. It may, however, not be inappropriate to this time to say that I have already made a careful study of the principles announced by the national convention and in whole and de tail they have my heartiest sympathy and MEET MY UNQUALIFIED APPROVAL. Apart from your official erand gen tlemen, I am extremely happy to welcome you all to my house, with many of you I have already shared the duties of public services and have enjoyed a most cordial friendship. I trust your journey from all parts of the great republic has been agree able, and that during your stay in Maine you will feel that you are NOT AMONG STRANGERS, but with iriends. Invoking the blessing of God upon the great cause which we jointly represent, let us turn to the future with out fear and with manjy hearts. At the conclusion of Mr. Blaine's reply the mem bers of the committee were introduced to him individually and an hour was spent in social and informal converse. The members of the committee then repaired to the residence of Col, Osgood, where thev were entained at lunch at one o'clock, anil left for Portland where they will have a reception this evening. FINANCIAL. POLITICAL. Results of the Garrison Fail ure on Railroad and Gas Companies. The Wing Failure -The St. Joseph Bank and Other Financial Affairs. Baltimore, June 21. The Sun says the announcement that Garrison had made an assignment, caused a good deal of conimo. tion among the consolidated gas company's people. It is well known that Garrison has been the principal capitalist behind the equita ble gas companv of this city, and it is ad mitted that there is no money in supplying gas at $1.00 to consumers, which is the pre vailing rate. One prominent consolidated director said the outcome from the assignment of Garri son may or may not be to the advantage of the consolidated company, but he was in clined to believe if the equitable went into other hands it would be lound more advan tageous Jto deal with half a dozen men who, might get control, than with one man as has been the case under the Garrison man agement. Melville C. Day, legal adviser of Garri son, says the advice which caused him to suspend was given by him and all those familiar with his affairs, and with the con current advice of those who knew THE STORM VAS UPON HIM, and that he could not weather it. His se curities were unavailable, and to hold out would have resulted in a complete wreck,to the detriment of his creditors and every body else. The statement in reference to his haviug applied to Vanderbilt and D. Mills to assist him is untrue. The exist ence of suits had nothing direetly or indi rectly to do with his assignment, and his asssets and liabilities depend on the time and negotiations for which the assignee may be able to sell certain securities. While they are in trinsically valuable, yet many have no FIXED MARKET VALUE. I presume a man with the ability and fi nancial connection of , D. Terry, assignee, may be able to make negotiations which will result in obtaining something approx imating the real value of the securities. E. D. Terry said the firm of E. D. Morgan & Co. had no financial connection with the Commodore, and he was appointed receiver because they had always been on friendly terms personally with Garrison. Commo dore Garrison was at his office early to-day, but refused to be seen. His clerks say he he is in very feeble health and much dis dressed and cannot admit many friends to see him. The Win?

The indebtedness of the concern as near as can now be ascertained is. D. L. Wing, about $25,000 : Downing acceptances about $100,000 : bonded debt on mill, $225,000 The assets outside of the mill property cannot be ascertained. The chief question seems to be whether Downing can protect his acceptances, and this is what Wing has gone East to find out. ine mm nas neen leased lor a year to par ties here and will be continued in opera tion. This action is taken to prevent small creditors from attaching the property. Rumor of Huntington. New York, June 21. A report as yet en tirely unconfirmed was circulating in Wall Street late this afternoon that Col. S. P. Huntington of Central Pacific railway fame, had failed. Senator Van Wyck's attack on the Pacific stocks and the marked decline of Northern Pacific d uring late hours of the session, may have started the story, but other stocks in which Huntington is reported to be interested held up well. The Chespeake & Ohio being notably firm. At 3 o'clock the friends of Huntington denied positive ly there was any truth in the story of his being embarrassed. Huntington denies that he has failed. The St. Joe Savings Bank. St. Joseph, Mo., June 21, The State Savings bauk of this city, which suspended April 14th, announces that it will resume on Monday morning. It will be remem bered that this bank found it necessary to close its doors temporarily on account oi the suspension of Dounel!, Lawson & Simi son, of New York, with which firu it had business relalious, and with whom it had, at the time of suspension, three or four hundred thousand dollars of its asset?. The Slate Savings bank, through its president, C.B.France has succeeded in realizing upon its assets lately held Uy Donneil, Lawson & S'mnson. hv " whnm it had been preferred in their assignment, and the assets of the bank are now intact. The close iu vestigations of this bank incidental to its assignment have disclosed the fact that it has a surplus of assets above its liabili ties of something over $20,000 and the business men are well satisfied with its con dition and management. The board of directors has been eularged by the addi tion oi a number of the best and most tubstantial business men of this city.

When the applause subsided he was introduced in a brief speech by Gen. Green B Rium. Gen Logan then addressed the assemblage as follows : Comrades and Fellow Citizens : The warm expressions of confidence and con gratulations which you offer me through your chairman impress me with a deep sense of gratitude.
