The Republicans Exnected to Defeat
the Tariff Bill in the
DEAL WITH LAWLESSNESS.
Eccentric Proceedings of the Coxeyite Band.
The House Will Make a Fight Against
Senate Tariff Amendments.
Washington, July 4.-(Special.1-Some of
the republican senators say that at the
last moment yesterday they expected to
defeat the tariff bill. Mr. Hill was
against the measure. This they were
aware of. It was thought that he would
control Mr. Irby, and if this was the case
Messrs. Caffery and Blanchard would fol-
low. If their expectations as to the votes
of these gentlemen had been realized the
bill would have 'been beaten. When Mr.
Oaffery's name was called he voted against
the passage of the bill. It astonished the
democrats and the republicans smiled. Mr.
Hill's name came next and he voted 110.
The smile of satisfac tion became 'broad on
the republican countenance. Mr. Irby's
name came next and he voted aye. The
smiles faded, for now it was seen that the
'bill was bound to -pass. Mr. Blanchard
had withdrawn from the senate that his
name might be passed till he could see
how the cat was jumping. As soon as
Mr. Caffery saw the jig was up he rose,
and by unanimous consent made a short
■talk, in which he said he changed his vote
to aye. He had voted against it because
it was ruinous to his people's interests.
His reasons for changing were very weak
and fell very flat. Mr. Blanchard came in
and wanted to make a few remarks, but
he was cut off by an objection on the
part of Mr. Teller* The position of the
Louisiana senators las democrats was not
much to arouse axifniration.
Members of the ways and moans com-
mittee of the house.are already engaged in
examining 'the senate bill. It will go to
the house to-morrow, be laid over for a
day and then sent to the ways and means
committee, which will report that it can
not agree to -the senate amendments and
ask for a conference. That is the pro-
gramme now, but it may be changed.
Then the fight will begin. That there is
to be a light on the part of the house
conferrees against the senate amendments
is no longer a matter of doubt.
Congressman 'McMillin told me to-day
tha-t in his opinion the fight would be
fierce, tout perhaps short, and he expected
the measure to become a law within three
weeks, and that congress would adjourn
between the 2d and 10th of August.
As soon as 'the tariff bill is disposed of
congress will be ready to adjourn, because
the appropriation bills will consume but a
short time in the senate, and the confer-
ence committees succeeding very little
time will be lost in getting them into laws.
ACTION AGAINST STRIKERS.
Washington, July 4.-There was an easier
feeling about the exe utive department and
less apprehension of1 violence and turbu-
lence on account of the great railroad
strike. Reports this morning were few and
comparatively unimportant, and gave en-
couragement for a hope that the Fourth
would be passed without serious trouble.
Attorney General Olney was at his office
early and found several telegrams await-
ing him. He went over to the white house
with them and gave the president a sum-
mary of the situation. The telegrams re-
lated principally to the work of United
States marshals, and one from Omaha sakl
that the marshal was unable to serve the
processes of the courts without assist-
ance. The attorney general lnsU'ueted him
to swear in deputies for the work.
Another action taken was the appoint-
ment of Joseph <vill of Los Angeles, Cal..
as assistant lTnited States attorney for that
district for the prosecution of strikers.
(Postmaster General Biesell said early
in the day that there had 'been no change
in the condition of postal affairs.
Secretary l^anunt and General Schofield
called on the president early in the day,
but they had nothing to communicate.
Their visits were short and rather in the
nature of consultation. Secretary Lamont
savs that the details of the movements
and disposition of ihe troops in Chicago
are now entirely in the hands of Colonel
Crofton [until General Miles arrives], who
has been instructed to confer with the dis-
trict attorney and Special "Counsel Walker.
A dispatch was to-day sent from the de-
partment. of justice to the United States
attorney at Chicago directing him to at
once call together the grand Jury. As 110
information had been received here of the
arrest of President Debs or any other
leaders of the strike, the purpose of the
attorney general in assembling the grand
jury was not clear, and hf was requested
by the Associated l'ress to state his rea-
sons for so doing, but he declined to dis-
cuss the matter. II Is surmised, however,
that he intends to secure the indictment
and punishment of Debs and the other
vrominent leaders for violations of the anti-
trust act of July 2. 1890, committed prior
to the issuance of the omnibus injunction
by judges Grosseup and Woods. The au-
thorities here are fully determined to en-
force the laws, and so far as the national
government is concerned there will be no
compromises and no temporizing. The
present strike is regarded as a bold defi-
ance of the laws af the country and a
criminal infringement of the rights of the
people of the whole country.
BUREAU CROP BUMJETIN.
Washington, July 8.—'The weather bureau
in its crop bulletin for the week ending
July 2 says: The week was much warmer
than usual throughout the states of the
central valleys and the lake region, includ-
ing the principal com and wheat states,
where the unusually warm weather caused
rapid drouth in all erops, and the weather
has been especially favorable In these sec-
tions for the harvesting and threshing of
It was the warmest week of the season
throughout the cotton region and the states
of the lower Mississippi valley, where many
of the maximum temperatures were the
highest that ever occurred in June.
The drouth previously reported in the
south Atlantic slates has been completely
broken and crops have been very much im-
proved by general rains, which have been
excessive 011 the coast of North Carolina,
the greater portion of Florida and south-
Generous showers have prevailed in the
states of the upper Mississippi valley and
eastern Nebraska, but the week has been
dry pver the central and western portions
of this area, reporting a total absence of
rain. In Tennessee, southeast Missiourl,
Arkansas and Oklahoma crops are much in
need of rain.
Viewing the conditions as a whole the
weather during the week has been especial-
ly ifavorable to the corn <;rop, which Is
about ready to ! by," and is reported
In excellent condition over the greater part
of the corn area, although the crop is about
ten days late.
Washington, July 4.—It is the general
understanding When the senate meets there
will be only a brief suasion and' that the
»enate w&ll adjourn until Monday. It is
quite probable that there will not be a
quorum In the senate again this week.
The resolution of Senator Kyle, intro-
duced for the striking railway men, U re-
garded as sure to cause debate and sena-
tors who expect to speak on it understand
that it wJl go over until Monday. The
resolution will undoubtedly cause some
pretty tart debate.
BURYING THE GODDESS.
Washington. July 4.—The Coxey "common
wealers" went through the spectacular
performance of burying the Goddess of
Liberty dn the front of the capitol to-day.
It was t'he sequel of the demonstration of
May 1, when, according to Coxey and
Browne, Liberty wajs mortally wounded
and lingered until she expired on the
Fourth of July.
Captain Austin und a force of ten mount-
ed men and twenty-six unmounted police-
men were on hand with two patrol wagons.
A small crowd was attracted by the novel
performance. The "commonwealerH"
marched two abreust, 246 strong, with
many banners and devices. At their head
ro-de Carl Browne In a remarkable disgu.se.
His beard had been removed and his face
powdered. A wig of yellow hair fell to
his waist. His arms were bare and pow-
dered. A liberty cap was on his head and
his body was wound with the emblematic
garments of liberty. It was not intended
that Browne .should be known in the dis-
guise and the name of the goddess was an-
nounced as "Sarah Elkhart,, an Egyptian."
After parading through Pennsylvania
avenue the army formed company front
around the peace monument, where God-
dess Browne delivered an apostrophe to the
bronze goddesis on top of the capitol. As
he closed his address he flopped in a badly
simulated swoon from his horse and his
comrades, catching him, placed the pale-
faced marshal in an impromptu hearse,
laid hilm out at full length with flags and
crape over him. The hearse was inscribed
"Liberty is dead."
The procession then moved away to Mul-
ligan hill, where the goddess stepped from
the hearse and the "commonwealers"
closed the day with dancing and speeches.
THE WEALERS' FARCE.
Washington, July 4.—[Special.]—Rumors
have been prevalent for some time that
the "commonweal army" Intended to march
into Washington on the 4th and the leaders
would again make an effort to speak from
the capitol steps. This morning they
marched into the city under the leadership
of Carl Browne, who tyad shaved off his
whiskers, dressed himself in woman's
clothes and represented Liberty. He rode
a horse sideways and was not generally
recognized until he began to make a speech
at the foot of Capitol hill. He railed at
congress and declared that liberty was
dead. To carry out the idea he fell from
his horse, pretending death, and was at
once thrown into a covered wagon which
the "wealers" had with them. He emerged
in a moment in men's clothes and the
"army" again resumed its march.
Browne halted it at another point, but
wras ordered to move on toy the police, and
it moved out of town. The whole thing
was a dismal farce. There were about 1550
men in line, a fourth of whom were col-
ored men. it was observed that very few
of the original "wealers" were in line,
they having abandoned the movement.
THE GLORIOUS FOURTH.
Washington, July 4.—The Fourth was
celebrated very quietly here to-day. There
were half a dozen celebrations by patriotic
bodies, of which the most interesting was
conducted by the Sons of the American Rev-
olution, which, under an escort by the Mar-
ine band and a detachment of the national
guard, marched to the foot of the Wash-
ington monument and held exercises there.
A LOUISIANA INVESTIGATION.
Baton Rouge, La., July 4.—[Special.]-—
The introduction of the resolution of Rep-
resentative Turnbull to investigate the
charges against Judge Furgeson created
some interest among legislators and some
discussion, but there was no excitement
The resolution went to the judiciary com-
mittee and Chairman Kilbourne endeav-
ored to secure a quorum of that body last
night, but the members were not easily to
be found and the meeting fell through.
it is not considered now that on actual
investigation will result from the introduc-
tion of tlhe resolution. The resolution will
hardly come up 011 final passage before to-
morrow if It to reported favorably, and
the time is so short between this date and
the close of the session that it is difficult
to see how the judiciary committee, even
with its power to send for persons and
papers, could make any but a superficial
investigation into the charges springing out
of the case of Senator Klynn.
MOB OF MLVEIRS.
Wallace, Idaho. July 4.—Seventy-flve men
entered the town of Gem and seized and
bound Supeirintendemt CNeill and Fore-
man Summers of the Gem mine and Frank
Wiggins, a non-union miner. The mob
started to t'he blacksmith shop where John
Nebo was working. Nebo saw theon com-
ing and sprang through the back window.
The mob fired, k'il'llng him Instantly, and
his body rolled down the hill. (The leader*
of the "mob held a short consultation and
gave the order to close in around the pris-
oners, who weire then maroheid over the
' \Vhen word reached Wallace many depu-
ties were sworn in and citizens joined their
organization. They are now In pursuit of
the mob. The trouble is a re<vival of the
light of 1892.
Union men have made frequent threats to
drive all non-union miners out, and, a few
weeks ago, fixed June 17 as the date non-
union miners must leave tihe Ooeur d'lAlene
OUT ON BOND.
Palestine, Tex., July 4.-<Frank Smith, one
of the parties charged with counterfeiting
money, gave bond and has been released
from jail. , , ,
The policemen have killed a great many
dogs here recently and are still killing them
as fast as they find them running at large
without the necessary collars. Two or
three dogs were killed In the early part
of the season that were thought to
have the rabies and the extermination of
the canines is done to avert its develop*
ment in others.

Little Rock, Ark., July 4.—To-day was
the greatest day witnessed at Camp Van
Etten, the scene of the great Interstate
drill. It being a holiday, everybody in the
city turned out during the day; 15,000 peo-
ple are estimated to have witnessed the
tournament. There probably would have
been 10,000 more people in attendance from
various points in the state had it not been
for the strike, ifew people venturing away
from home for fear of not being able to get
back. Besides being a national holiday,
it was also "Memphis day," two companies
from that city being on the competitive
drill programme. Qver 1000 citizens of
Memphis, including Colonel A. R. Taylor
of the Second regiment, Colonel Keller An-
derson, captain of the old Chlckasaws and
sixty members of tho Chickasaw club, were
here, the Chlckasaws arriving on a special
train at 2 p. m. The city was in grand
holiday attire, business being practically
A delightful shower at 5 o'clock this
morning cooled off the atmosphere and
brought thousands of spectators out at
night to witness the fireworks, the finest
ever seen in this part of the country. Dur-
ing the day the bands discoursed national
In the morning a state company, the
Jaulkner light guards of Conway, drilled
for the maiden prize, and in the afternoon
another state company, the Jefferson
guards, drilled for the same prize.
Th» Dallas light battery of Dallas, Tex.,
put up a magnificent drill for the first ar-
tillery prize of $750..
The Branch guards of St. Louis drilled
in the interstate class in the afternoon.
The drilling of tho Memphis companies
was the chief feature of the day's contest.
The Net^ly zouaves is one of* the finest
bodies of young men in camp, and put up
a drill which set the vast audience wild
with enthusiasm. The Governor's guards
of Memphis was the last company to drill.
1 hey were entered in the maiden class and
stand a good show for the first prize of
The following companies were inspected
this morning: The Faulkner light Infaptrv
of Conway, the Jefferson guards of Pine
Bluff and Governor's guards of Memphis
lor the maiden class. The Branch guards
of St. Louis were also inspected. The in-
spection was just as rigid as the others
and the guards were very proficient in
the handling of the guns and stood like a
stone wall. The uniforms of the guards
are of dark blue with silk stripes across
front of the coat and on the trousers. To
an observer the St. Louis company stood
a splendid inspection. The Governor's
guard of Memphis also stood a splendid
■inspection. The Neely company of Mem-
phis, like all zoua « companies, has an In-
spection peculiar to itself and stood an
almost perfect Inspection.
At 11 o'clock the Faulkner guards drilled
and were followed by the Jefferson guards
of Pine Bluff. Then the Dallas artillery
was brought forward. Though the India-
napolis light artillery has never yet met
defeat, to avoid it this time the company
must put up an errorless drill, else the Dal-
las company will secure the big prize.
Those in the audience who know anything
about artillery drill were in tho minority,
but nevertheless the drill of the Dallas boys
was heartily applauded. Every man in the
company, from the captain down, seemed
to know Just what to do and when to do
The Branch guards of SI. Louis, the win-
ner of the championship cup in 1891 at In-
dianapolis, was the third company to drill
for the big prize. Captain Sinclair has a
splendid reputation as a captain, and the
company put up a dangerously near per-
fect drill this afternoon. In breaking into
fours from a company front the distance
was bad and quite a number of Individual
errors were noted. The manual was well
executed, and the field movements could
have been improved upon but little.
There is a difference between Captain
Wings of the MoCurthy light guards and
Captain Sinclair's Interpretation of the pro-
gramme, consequently both can not be
right. The slop was Just a trifle slow, and
every time the company dressed left
the left hand was placed at the hip. Tho
St. Louis company's drill was pronounced
a good all around drill by the tacticians.
Mem/iihUs' crack Zouave iteaim, tlhe Neelys,
set a hot pace for the zouave companies
that are to follow, and though the Invinci-
ble Busohs of St. Lou s, who have never
•met with defeat; the Chicagos, with nine-
teen first prizes out of twenty-two contests
to her cre.l t, and the Hales of Kansas
City, winners of the zouave drill, it would
surprise few should the Memphis company
secure first money. The movements were
new and original, and the exactness with
which the manual was executed and the
j 1 rlVcflon of the field movements brought
/forth much applause.
The Memphis entry for the maiden drill,
the Governor's guards, received so much
applause when It marched on the parade
grounds that Captain Patterson's company
cou.d not hear him. The company marched
about the parade grounds for a few mo-
ments before the Judges gave Captain Pat-
terson his programme. With all the cheer-
ing they were as calm and composed as
though in their armory at home. Captain
Patterson's interpretation of the programme
differed from the captains that have gone
before him, as he executed movements
which the others did not. The company
put up a good, though not an errorless,
drill, and Captain Patterson tlnlshed his
drill in twenty-nine minutes.
Following the drill of the Memphis com-
pany came dress parade. Fifteen com-
panies responded to the dress parade bugle
and formed a regiment of three battalions,
consisting of five companies each, one bat-
talion being made up of zouave companies
exclusively and the Jefferson barracks
At night the fireworks were set off and
proved a grand success.
To-morrow's programme promises to bo
the most Interesting yet offered to the
public. Six companies will drill in competi-
tion, among them being the Nat.onal Fencl-
•bles of Washington, l>. C. The fact that
they won the championship cup at Omaha
in 1802 and still possess it has caused
everybody to look forward with especial
interest to their execution of the com-
The other companies that drill to-morrow
are the Mullens guards of Kansas City, the
Louisiana greys of New Orleans, the Buscn
zouaves of St. Louis, the Emmett guards
of Washington and the Governor's guards
Of these the lx>uisiana greys and Gover-
nor's guards are entered In the maiden
class, the latter having been entered for
the interstate drilling programme Tuesday.
&MITGGJJ1NG GOODS IN HAY BALES.
Fall 'River. Mass., June 29.—Custom house
inspectors have seized $37f> worth of gin,
rum and contraband medicines which were
shipped here in hay bales from St. Thomas,
Canada. It has been known for some
years that certain Canadian business men
in this city were growing rich by smug-
gling, but it was impossible to cat.'h them,
so cleverly was the work done. It is ex-
pected that one of the gang has turned
state's evidence. The deputy collectors
have learned that the sedzed goods w :*e
sent subject to the shipper's order, and
.were consigned by one. iDwieu. Arrests
at this end are expected.
