THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : WEDNESDAY JULY. 20. 1887.
TJItt GOLok MM3 IN OliOUGlA. ! * > ' ailxclSciool8 ) Condemned Unilor So- YOUK , July 17. ( Special Telegram to the BEI : . ! A dispatch from Atlanta to tlio Trlbunn , jrlve.s tlio history and significance of a measure now before the Georgia legisla ture , the result of which may bo to send the teachers of colored children to thn chain gang. This bill provides that no school or other educational Institution conducted for the education of colored people shall receive as a pupil any white person , and that no school or educational Institution , conducted for the education of white people , shall re ceive" as a pupil any colored person. A viola tion of.lt1) provisions Is made a misdemeanor , punishable by a line not to exceed 81,000 , imprisonment not to exceed six months or work In the chain Rang not to exceed twelve months , any or all In the discretion of the court. The reason of the bill Is found In the following facts : in IST/v the American Mis sionary association founded tlio Atlanta uni versity for the education of colored youth , obtaining all money needed to build and maintain the Institution from the north , the total sum since lbC7 bolnc over three hundred and llfty thousand dollar ? . For several 1 years there have been a few white pupils In this school. These wrru the children of the professors , and In one In stance the child of a mlssionniy < > t the Amer ican Mission association. The presence of these white children was duechlelly to the fnct that there was no school In Atlanta where tin' children could receive as thorough training and discipline , and because the sen timent of the people against "tiller teach ers" was such that to send children to white Bchool.s would liavo been to subject them to ostracism and Insult When the republican conaress granted school inmls to the several states , Ocorida' received 3270,000 In scrip. Which brings the state § 10,000 u year. This was at llrst all given to the state university at Athens , with nearly one-half of its state population colored. It took the nation's gift for the bonelit of the whole state , and put It whore the colored people could have no share In It whatever , Homebody dlscoveicd that this was clearly a misappropriation ot funds , and the state atoncn toolc great credit to Itself by appropriating half of the sum for the education of the colored people ple and giving It to the At lanta unlvcrsttv. although tlio money Is tlio gift of the United States. It Is always spoken of as a state appropriation. Now the state suddenly opens Its eyes to the fact that In this Institution , built and Bupnorted by the noith and receiving only one-third of Its cur rent expenses from the state of a national plft for education , a few white children are bclngcduratcd , and It Is to set the seal ot condemnation on any such mixture of schol ars that a measure worthy of the dark ages has been introduced In the legislation. Hrltlsh Politics. LONDON. JuIylO.-Tho cabinet met again to-day to discuss the amendments to the land bill offered by the liberal unionists. The election In Baslnstoko , division of Hamp shire , to ( ill the vacancy caused by the eleva tion to the peerage of G , Sckatter Booth , con servative , was held to-day. Jeffreys , con servative , was elected , securing 3,358 votes against 2,420 for the liberal candidate. The conservative vote shows a falling off of 600 and the liberal vote a gain of 100 compared With the election of 1880. The Marquis of Salisbury Informed the as semblage that the differences between the lib- eral-unlonlKts and the government regarding the land bill had been satisfactorily adjusted , concessions having been made whleh re moved the chief objections which had been entertaliuul by Chamberlain and his friends. The government' had also decided to authorize the land commissioners to re consider within a certain period the rents of holdings proved to have been effected by the fall In prices of produce and cattle. The meeting favored the early prorogation of parliament , expediting tlio passage of the land bill and allotmtmts bill , and the devo tion of the remainder of tlio session to the consideration of the supply bill , so that ad journment might take place not later than thti third week in August. Sir James Ferguson , parliamentary secre tary of the foreign ollico , stated In the house of commons this afternoon that the Question of the assent of the powers to thu election of Prince Ferdinand to the Bulgarian throne would not arise until after the sultan had sanctioned his election , and the sultan's junction had not yet been given. Concerning the Anglo-Turkish Egyptian convention bir James said no negotiations were proceeding , and It was unlikely that the suspended negotiations would bo aoon resumed , Sir Henry Drummond Wolff , Brit ish special envoy , not having given Kng- land's ratification , no withdrawal of tbo rati fication could take placo. The house ot commons went formally In a body to the house of lords this afternoon , whore the royal assent wan givnu to the Irish crimps act amendment bill , and It was thus made the law of the realm.

They were well received. Blalne delivered an address. He said at first ho thought the aspect presented by nu Ameri can engaged In the ceremony of raUlne a monument to a king seemed out of place , but iho harm done was not so t-orioiis , consider ing that King Alexander lived before America was discovered. America , Blaine added , sympathized with Scotland In all the grout things done In both literature and art [ or the promotion of the welfare of the pee ple. Another Cursing Commoner.

The speeches at the Carleton club meeting to-day show much friction between the government and the unionists. A crisis was narrowly averted.

Maggie Lovlitta Arrested in This City 'By the Sheriff From Ohadron , ATTACKED WITH A KNIFE. Two Italians Assault n Matt For Nip * pins n Peanut Wanted For Criminal Llbel-Thu City Council. Arrested For An Old Crime. For n few weeks past Sheriff Monnoll , of Chmlron , Unwes county , has been in In the city quietly on the scent of the principals ot u murder committed in that region over n year ago. As n trophy of his visit ho took buck with him yester day Matrgio Lovlitts , the nllcjrpil female accomplice of the murderer Thompson. Miss Lovlitts was employed ns a waiter in a restaurant hero , nnd the nrrcst was mndo so quietly that none were nwaro of her reasons for quitting the plaoo. Thompson luis been seen once in Council Uluffs since Sheriff Monuell's arrival here , but as nothing has been scon of him since it is thought that lie has taken alarm nnd is cither secreted oris lied for safer quarters. Tlio victim of the murder was formerly n citizen of ( Jhiulron , who had moved into the Niobrura valley in the southern part of the same county. Hu lived alone in n cabin for several months and it was known that he had considerable nioney. One day a neighbor happened into his lonely cabin nnuwas shocked to lind the dead body of the owner fostering with decay. Tins'bullet holes in the body and the disordered state of the cabin told only too plainly of thn final desperate struggle between the murderers and their victim. The rummaged condition of the place and the failure to lind any of the murdered man's valuables gave a clew to the mercenary motives that prompted the murder. The crime created a great deal of excitement m Duwes and the sur rounding counties , and if the murderers could have been cap tured it was freely nilmittod that Judge Lynch was the only suitable mag istrate before whom such n heinous deed should bo tried. About this time it was noticed that Thompson and Miss Lovlitts , who had been on the most intimate terms , had suddenly disappeared. Sus picions were immediately fastened upon thorn as the perpetrators of the crime. Subsequent developments conlirmed those suspicions , and the matter was placed in the hands of the proper of ficers. The officers have pushed the in vestigation with the greatest caution and vigilance , but hare been continually foiled in all their attempts to dis cover the whereabouts of the guilty pair , until within the last few weeks , when n clue was discovered which by skillful handling : resulted in the capture of Thompson's accomplice , Mi s Lovlitts , as above stated. The crafty Thompson , however , has defied the vigilance and craftiness of the ofli- co.rs , and Sheriff Monncll has temporarily arily returned to Uhmlron. STABBED POIl A PEANUT. An Italian Thrusts a Dagger Into Jacob Darr. Yesterday afternoon as Jacob Uarr , an expressman , was passing by tlio fruit stand on the corner of Thirteenth and Harnoy streets , ho plucked a peanut from the stand and passed on. This on- niged the proprietors , Louis Fnrlin and Louis Roman , and armed with a hatchet nnd dagger respectively , they started in pursuit of Darr. Some words passed between - tweon the three which resulted in Farlin stabbing Uarr in the thigh. The patrol wagon was sent for and both persons were carried to the police station. Dr. Ralph , the city physician , was sum moned , and upon probing the wound found it ranched clear to the bone , and ma.v cause Uarr considerable trouble be fore it is healed. The wound was prop erly dressed and Uarr was taken to his homo. Meanwhile Roman , Farlin's partner , was notlticd by the police to closa upJiis stand , and ho , too , was ar rested and lodged with his murderous partner in the city prison. The affair created considerable excitement , and among the largo crowd that gathered on the scene went a number of Italians. One of these began disputing with a policeman concerning the assault , und becoming defiant anil noisy , ho too , was hurried off to join his fellow countrymen behind the bars. CRIMINAL LI DEL. A Herald Man to llo Arrcatod on That Chargo. A warrant was issued yesterday after noon for the arrest of J. G. King , of the Herald , on a charge of criminal libel pre ferred by Isaao Brown. King is sup posed to bo the man who wrote the highly sensational and poorly substantiated ar ticle which appeared several mornings ago and which accused Brown ot being the head of an organized gang of thieves. By an understanding the warrant was hold until to-day wbon King will appear with his bondsmen - men and dispose of tlio preliminaries. An effort was rnado last night by Wil liam N. King , an advertising man on the World , and the complainant to have the warrant served on the grounds that King was going to jump the city. As it was Dclievcd to bo prompted from per sonal fueling and the police felt assured that King could bo found at any time , the paper was not served. It was bo- liovcd to be prompted by a desire to have King locked up over night. Several other suits will doubtless follow Brown's against the Herald , occasioned by the lack of discrimination between news and nonsense which caused the sensational article. SEPTEMBER'S GALA AVEEIC Such Will be the Una In Which tbo Omaha Fair IB to be Hold. The coming session of tbo Omaha Fair and Exposition association , which com mences September 0 and continues to the 10th inclusive , Secretary MeSlwno says will surpass anything of the kind over held in the state of Nebraska. He nnd his corps of clerks are kept well oc cupied thcso days answering correspond ence from all parts of this and the sur rounding states , and the interest in the great Autumnal show seems to bo more widespread and general than the man agement oven dared hope for. The ex hibits in agriculture will bo of an ex traordinary character , while the slock departments will bo tilled ns they never were before. The speed ring , which is always paramount to all other features , will bo extremely attractive. There are already fifty entries for the different classes , embracing the best known horses of the whole west. The entries in the colt stakes , which are alwajs of the most conspicuous interest to local horse breeders , far exceed those of any former years ; m fact , more than double them. It should not bo forgotten , cither , that during the same week of the fair the soldieri and sailors of Nebraska , will hold their an nual reunion here , which will go far to ward enhancing the ploasureablo excite ment of the occasion. The soldiers and sailors will hold their gathering on beau tiful and picturesque grounds.but a quar ter of a mile from the fair grounds. BO visitors can kill two birds with a single stone , by taking luljolh groatshows each As' far us the fair la concerned , it can not fail of boiiig a 'groat success appli cations for space nro .coming In numer ously ovcrv day , and the number of ex hibitors will bn thrfio-fold greater than over boforo. However , the merchants , business-men , manufacturers anil shop men of Omaha should manifest the heartiest appreciation of this mammoth cnlcrpriso , and lend tivcry assistance in the way of exhibiting' their goods and decorating their places of business dur ing the fair. Wlttiluo combined aid of these , the exposition , , wlll indeed bo a glittering success. Buildings on the grounds are all being cleaned up , re paired and put in first-class shape , and there is no doubt that every detail will bo in \dlncss for one of the grandest fairs and expositions of the day. Council Proceedings. The city council met in regular session last night. The meeting was featureless , nothing but routine business being transacted and the body adjourning before fore ordinances on their passage had been reached. The gas Inspector reported upon the quality of gas furnished by the gas com pany and said the only complaint which could bo made was that occasionally the gas was smoky. Otherwise it was above the standard. Mr. Manville introduced n resolution that in view of the Injunc tion case now pending in the courts the city clerk bo instructed to have all city printing dona nt the Republican ollicu. The resolution was not in Mr. Manvillo's handwriting and was probably drawn up in the ollico of the Republican. It was adopted by the com bine vote. Mr. Keirstead introduced a resolution to thn effect that the official advertising continue in the HUB until anew now contract could bo drawn up and ap proved It was tabled by 11 to 0 , seven teen members being present. Mr. lias- call of the judiciary committee returned the Moynihan "protective night watch" ordinance with the recommendation that it be acted on nt the present meeting. As the council adjourned before any or dinances were passed the "protective watch" scheme , is not as yet foisted upon the people. After further routine busi ness the council adjourned. A Broken Arm. The arm of Adam McClure , an em ploye of the Model steam laundry , was caught and broken in the machinery of the collar machine yesterday. The belt ing had slipped from the wheel of the shaft , and in attorn pting to replace it while in motion , his hand hand was caught m the bolting , and his arm was twisted around the shaft , breaking the bono. By the prompt assistance of his fellow employes the machine was stopped and further injury avoided. McGluro was taken to his homo , the bone was pet , and if inflamation does not set in , the physician in attendance says ho will be able to return to his work in a week or two. ± A Denial and Offer.

To the carpenter con tractors of the city of Omaha , gentlemen : At a mooting called by the journeymen carpenters for the purpose of adjusting hours of labor and wages between jour neymen and contracting carpenters , you entered into an engrccmcnt with the journeymen carpenters of this city on the lath day of Juno , 1837 , to the effect that nine hours do constitute a day's work for live days and eight hours con stitute a day's work on Saturday with the same pay pur day , and additional pay and a naif for all over time , anil that thirty cents per hour bo paid to all com petent carpenters and joiners. The journeyman ou their part agreed that the contractors should have the right to pay men according to their ability , provided they paid thirty cents to competent carpenters. This agree ment was signed by the following firms In their own handwriting and is now in our possession : John \V. Uwin , T. 11. Smith , William Emerson , J. II. Tyrrell , J. A. Hazell , James Grilllth , Hamilton & Woolley , Simmons , HOOVPS & Company , Shaw & Field , A. W. Phclps & Son , I. N. Bennett , Norling & Reynolds. S. Macleod , B. M. Nlcnlson.

Corey , John II. llnrtc , George Waddoll. J. G. Sails- berry , A. Meyer , James Hayncs , Goo. C. Allen , Laty & Benson , Peter Sperling , J. Wccda. M. T. Murphy , B. Jobst , Fin- Inyson AB Nobles , Chas. A. Nelson. Every contractor spoken to by the committee of journeymen , who had not signed , agreed to the system except T. 11. Bray- ton and Councilman Consman who em ploy eight or ten men each und are going to discontinue tlio business. With a viuw of making your agreement universal you called a mooting of contractors on the 15th day of July and permitted several incompetent and irresponsible parties to introduce resolutions to alter your docu ment in such manner as to change its meaning in every particular. Gentlemen you have allowed yourselves to drift into disreputable company und arc being misled by soyeral by mistutcments on the part of members of your fraternity with whom wo will have nothing to do under any circumstance. Moreover you ignored the committee sent by the journeymen carpenters to adjust differences , sliould their bo any. The following are the resolutions you published over your signature : Whereas , Wo , the master carpenters , hav- ine ascertained by a committee appointed for that purpose , that a majority of master carpenters still work theirmen ten hours , but Kesolved , That wo consider said agree ment null and void and adopt the following resolution : .Resolved , By the undersigned , that nine hours be considered a day's work tor all working days of the week at a uniform rate of thirty cents per hour for fust-class car- pentcis and no distinction be made between union ana non-union men , master carpen ters icservine the riu'lit to grade their men according to their ability. Men will be paid for the number of hours they work and no more. It is further understood by the master carpenters that any journeyman carpen ter leaving his present employer because of this resolution will not be employed by any of the undersigned master car penters , but said journeyman must re turn to his former employer. Now , you say that your committee ( which consisted of only one active mem ber. J. C. Gladden ) , ascertained that a majority of master carpenters still con tinue to work their men ton hours. This statement ia false und was the first step by which you were misled. Another thing , the journeyman do not consider a large portion of the self-styled master carpenters compontent and re liable contractors. For instance , J. C. Glmldon your secretary who has liens tiled in the clerk's oflico of the county court house against work done by him last season und the year previous on eleven jobs to the amount of $8,009.83 , and who it appears does not have many friends among the journeymen car penters , nor docs he stand in good repute among the contractors , except when he is ongairod in such devilish work as draft- injr.resolutions such as appeared in the daily papers last week. It is a pity that the contractors who assembled in that hall could not or did not elect a secretary and committeimian with a better record ns a mechanic and contractor than J. C. Gaddcn. A representative of another class of so- called master carpenters is T. B. Brayton who has taken work m Contyes1 addition tor $4,000 which was estimated by relia ble contractors to cost .fO.OOO und over. This is by far the largest class in opposi tion to any thing which will bo the least bonelit to that labor , which is in fact , the only capital of the master carpenter. Further , the carpenters have reason to believe that a number of proud , arrogant and unscrupulous contractors are en deavoring to create dissensions between honorable and well meaning contractors and the men in their employ. To bo a master carpenter is one who has learned the trade of carpenter ana joiner , nnd who knows how to work at the business himself. A contractor is one who has the business ability to con tract for work successfully. It is a well known fact that with but few exceptions all reliable and honorable contractors have worked their men nine hours a day and eight hours on Satur day from the Oth day of July Among these exceptions are J. F. Coots nnd A. Rosenborry , nnd we have reason to bolicvo that if it had not bcon for the high-handed intermeddling of one Wied- ner , knovvn as the bookkeeper at Rosen- berry's mill , many of these dissensions would not have occurred. You say also that SO cents per hour will bo paid to first- class carpenters. You agreed to pay 30 cents to competent men. First-class is a higher grade than the ordinary compe tent carpenter. It appears that you in tend to go back on your word to that ex tent. Vt hile it is customary for you to es timate the value of a building , you also by custom assume the right to place a value on the journeyman carpenter who performs the labor on that building , nnd just in proportion as you insist on these rights the carpenter loses his individual right to estimate the value of the labor which ho performs , and though you may , and possibly have the right , by force of circumstances , to consider your part of that agreement null nnd void , is it just to the men in your employ , who are en deavoring to abide by their part , that you now adopt resolu tions changing the whole or part in such manner that it is meaningless altogether ! You yourselves inserted the tune and a half in the agreement to pro tect the nine hour contractor , and now you consider U null and void. For what purpose ? Did we over ask you to discriminate in favor of our union except to recognize it as a representative body of journeymen carpcntorsT The last clause of your res- o'.ution Is nn infamous threat of a black list , an insult to the independent Amer ican mechanic , gotten up in an arrogant manner for the purpose of coercion , and you , gentlemen , in your simplicity and ignorance , have bcon Induced to appear ns voucher for such sentiments. The Journeymen carpenters mot you in a spirit of concession and fairness , willing to forego their just demands nnd forgot the many abuses to which their trade has long been subjected in order that the building interests of the city might not suffer , and this U the result. Many hon orable contractors wore willing and are now ready to abide by their agreement. Among these are Hamilton & Woolley , James. Griffith , Joseph Hayncs , George Wuddoll , Donald Nobles , Simons , Reeves & Co. , and nineteen others whoso names wore not allowed to appear on these last resolutions. There are many others among you who have been cajoled and browbeaten by disreputable and dis honest man , who assume to call thorn- solves nustor carpenters , into the adop tion of what they please to call a nine- ' ' hour rule , which leaves it optional for them to continue to rob the men In their employ. Many contractors on last Sat urday and Monday discharged a portion of their men because they would not promise to work nine hours on Saturday. Many others refused to employ certain journeymen because they hiuf loft their former employer. Still others threat ened their men with a general lockout. Arc thcso honorable means to establish a universal nine-hour rule ? To elevate the journeyman carpenter ? And harmonl/o the building interests of the city. Uo you know that if you order a lookout you will bo the only ones out of a job ? Can you not form a carpenter contrac tors' association which will bo an honor to the craft , n bonelit to yourselves and a protection to the building Interests of the city without bulldo/.ing the labor by which you have been able to gain a live lihood. Are you not able to regulate matters among yourselves to the end that fair prices will be paid for good work , and the wood butcher carpenter will bo discarded ? Is it not possible for employer and em ploye to work iu harmony without black list or boycott ? No\v , then , in view of the action you that you have taken , bo it Resolved , By the Journeymen carpenters In special meeting assembled that wo nbldo by and shall enforce the agioomont enteied Into on Juno in , IhST. That nine houis constitute a day's work and eight hours on Saturday , for same pay per day and : so cents bo the standaid nay for competent carpenters. Time and a half shall be paid tor overtime. That this rulg shall stand until January 1. 18SS. By order of Carpenter's Union GS nnd 271 of the Brotherhood of Carpenters of America. ANAMOSA 1TI3M8. An Intorcstini ; Suit on Trial Ro inarkahle Cures. AXAMOSA , la. , July 10. [ "Correspond- once of the HUE. ] John Green , proprie tor of the stone quarries at Stone City , lour miles cast of hero , has a peculiar case in court that will decide a point of law now in doubt. Mr. Green's agent in Now York City hired and sent to Stone City Jive stone cutters , paying their rail road faro , hotel bills and express charges on their kit of tools , amounting In ail to over $115. When the men arrived at their destination they utterly refused to go to work for Mr. Green , whereupon the latter had them arrested for obtain ing money under false pretenses , but failed to hold them under that charge. Ho has now taken a new tack and pro poses to attach their tools and it is cre ating a great deal of interest. The men have a great many friends here and Mr. Green has plenty of money. Mrs. Mary Philueck , of Olin , this county , is creating a general curiosity by her astonishing cures by the faith sys tem. She is a very unostentatious woman of perhaps forty years of ago , and n very pleasant conversationalist. This woman has cured a lady in Anamosa who for years had been unable to walk , owing to nn ailment of the nnklo. Another woman by the name of Paylos , who had paralysis and was unable to even feed herself , is almost .entirely well , and these women are treated simply by the lady in question taking them by the hand. ' 1 he Jones county fair will behold at Monticcllo , August 29,30 , 31 and Septem ber 1 and 2. Over $5,000 is offered in premiums. The Anamos district fair will be hold at Anamos August 21) ) , 85 , 20 and 27. The district includes the counties of Jones , Delaware , Cedar. Lins , Jack son and Dubuque , and will have in at tendance the finest field of horses to be found in the state. An assembly of the Knights of Labor has recently been organized at this place with a largo membership. The crops in this county look line with the exception of wheat , which is almost n total failure , and many farmers have cut it and used it lor fodder for their stock , the chinch bugs being the causo. Wheat will lirvo to bo imported for home consumption. During the la. t five days the thermometer has ranged from 100 ° to 112 ° in the shade , consequently tbo crops need rain very badly , as the ex- trcm , heat crisps up the leaves. If wo have wet weather soon everything but wheat will be a big yield. Personal Paraeraphn. J. Uixon Avery of Fremont is in the city. city.General General G. B.
