Dun's Review says that most lenders

Tun Washington Post wishes to know
where tho republican party can find a
safer, a stronger or a wiser leader than
Henry M. Teller. He is certainly a good
man. and tho republican party has many
such, who would givo us an administra
tion worthv of the countrv.
Titn groat body of tho voters who
helped to put in the present administra

thus made, and are now ready for au

Tnx Chicago Inter Ocean is very sen
sible in claiming that it is time to quit
trifning with anarchism as a political
proposition and consider it as a patho
logical problem. Tho man who belioves
it is his mission to' slay his family to the
glory of God, wo claim tho right to ar
rest and incarcerate on tho first mani
festation of that tendency. The mono
maniac who has an idea that he is
divinely commissioned to destroy socie
ty should be similarly dealt with" before
no iiau an opportunity to matte a prac
tical illustration of his theory. The
profession of anarchy should be n crime
do facto, and wo should be no moro
lenient with the man who utters anarch
istic doctrines than with the man arrest
ed at night with a burglar's kit in his
possession. A criminal tendency should
be as serious a concern of law as a crim
inal purpose, and tho best law is that
which does tho most to j)revent crime.
President Tkacy tit tho League meet

brief summary regarding a subject in
which wo are all more or less interested
Inl8Sl when the Democratic party
let go" of its power, the credit of tho
countiy was impaired; it was threatened
by rebellion and its Hag disgraced, fac
tories were closed and workmen wero
parading its streets clamoring for bread.
When it returned to complete power in
181M, it found a happy and contented
people, a nation at tho very zenith of
prosperity and new enterprises and pro
jects fairly encompassing the continent.
It found tho new West thrilled with the
movement of mighty industries which
were developing her mines and demon
strating the great forces and resources
of her territory. It found that in thirtv
years the United States had made tho
most remarkable material and industrial
advancement in tho history of nations;
that in that time it had risen front tho
level of dishonored credit and protested
national notes to the wealthiest and
most honored nation on earth, and all
this under the republican policy of pro
tection to American labor and American
industries, and under tho leadership of
such statesmen as Lincoln, Grant, Har
rison and Blaine."
It is no uso to refer to tho present
state of tho country, under democratic
administration it is apparent to all.

marquis was visiting the new cathedral,
which is now in course of construction,
when he was attacked by a workman
armed with a dagger. Another work

Pullman Strike Washington News.
Washington, July 3. The Pullman
Strike had an echo in the senate Monday.
Mr. Call offered a resolution for the ap
pointment of a joint committee of five
members of the house and senate to in
quire into the cause of the existing Pull
man strike, the justice of the demands of
the workingmen, and to report by bill, or
otherwise, and Mr. Kyle offered a reso
lution, indorsed by President Debs, of
tho A. R. U., and General Secretary
Hayes, of the K. of L., looking to the
protection of the strikers from federal in
terference, except to insure tho trans
portation of the mails, and declaring
that the detachment of Pullman or other
parlor or sleeping cars from a train
shall not constitute an offence against
the United States. Both resolutions,
under the rules, went over until tomor
row. The senate began formal consideration
of the tariff bill amended in committee
of the whole in the senate Monday, and
much progress was made. The sugar,
which overshadowed the other schedules,
being considered, the pivot upon which
the fate of the measure depended, went
through the trying ordeal and escaped
with only one amendment. That amend
ment made the repeal of the bounty and
the schedule to go into effect upon the
passage of the bill. The adoption of
this amendment was a signal victory for
Senator Hill. In addition to the Repub
lican votes in favor of it, four Democ
rats, Messrs. Coke, George, Irb' and

TO INVESTIGATE PULLMAN STRIKE.
Representative Crain Favors Congressional
Action to Settle Matters.
Washington, July H. Representative
Crain (Tex.) introduced a resolution in
the house for investigating the Pullman
strike. Mr. Crain was a member of the
Curtin congressional commission of 18S5
which investigated the great strike of
the year and succeeded in securing a
settlement after much trouble to both
sides. The resolution directs the com
mittee on interstate commerce to at once
investigate the causes that have led up
to tho Pullman strike and its successive
stages of development, and to rewrt at
the earliest 'practicable time as to the
means of overcoming tho present conflict
and prevent similar trouble.
( Mr. Crain said of his resolution:
'Technically it ma- be said congress is
to arbitrate, but in these great conflicts
which cross state lines and involve the
whole country congress is the only pos
sible power to act. Moreover, the moral
effect of a congressional investigation is
sufficient to check the conflict, and pos
sibly stop it. There is a natural will
ingness on both sides to defer to what a
bodj representing congress may suggest.
The strike of 18S5 cost the Knights of
Lalor thousands of dollars a day, yet
the settlement which the Curtin commit
tee proposed and which I had the honor
to write was accepted by Master Work
man Powderly on the one hand and the
railway men on the other and that strug
gle was ended."
POLICY OF THE ADMINISTRATION-
The President anil Members of the Cabinet
Uelri a Long Conference.
Washington, July 3. An extended
conference was held at the White House,
lasting from i) o'clock until midnight
Monday. There were present besides
the president Secretary of War Herbert,
Attorney General Oluey, Major General
Schofield, Secretary Gresham and Gen
When the conference was adiourned
the officials were very reticent in regard
to its result. It was learned, however,
that the situation had been reviewed in
detail and the general policy of the ad
ministration outlined. The views ex
pressed were generally to the effect that
while the strike was likely to fall of its
own weight and from lack of thorough
crganization, yet it was necessary for all
authorities to be on the alert and to
check at the outset any overt and law
less acts. It was held that tho law was
amply sufficient to authorize federal in
tervention whenever conspiracy was
shown, as well as when mails were in
terfered with or the interstate com
merce act infringed. No specific di
rections were given General Miles. He
will leave for Chicago immediately and
resume control of his forces.
Cleveland's Position on tho Strike.
Washington, July 3. The president,
who at first had been disposed to regard
the strike as existing to a large extent in
the minds of what he calls the sensa
tional press, expressed himself, after
listening to Olney's official story, as be
lieving the matter to be of a very serious
character. He declared that the govern
ment must protect its own property, see
that its business is transacted and be
ready to give prompt assistance where
ever it could legally do so.
Indian Land Title Good.
Washington, July 3. The secretary
of the interior has ruled the Pueblo In
dians in Colorado hold such title to their
lands as to withdraw the question of
their land lease from the jurisdiction of
the interior department.
Comparative Treasury Statement.
Washington, July 3. The compara
tive statement of the receipts and ex
penditures for the year ended June 30,
1894. shows the following receipts $29t',
900,336, and the expenditures ;G(i..'93,
S59, which leaves a deficit of $9,G33,023.
The customs receipts show a falling off
of about- $01,000,000, aud internal
revenue about $14,000. There was an
increase of about $4,500,000 in tho ex
penditures on account of the war depart
ment and about lJidO.OO on account of
the navy. There was a decrease of over
1,300,000 in the civil and miscellaneous!
expenditures about 3.000,0u0 on account
of the Indian service and a decrease of
over 18,000,000 on account of pensions.
-titer Sleeping Car Monopolies.
Washington, July 3. Representative
Brickner (Wis.) introduced a bill in the
house aimed at sleeping car monopolies.
It is as follows: "That on and after
Jan. 1, IS'j-3, all railroad companies en
gaged m interstate commerce shall own
or by lease control all sleeping cars oa
their roads or branches operated or con
trolled by them. All railway companies
which fail to comply with this act and
use sleeping cars upon their roads not
their own, by lease or otherwise, shall be
subject to a fine of 10 per day for each
and even' car so used.

Chicago, July 3. Monday's develop
ments in the great Pullman-American
Railway union strike were prolific in
sensationalism, the principal theater of
action being in Chicago and adjacent
suburbs. Wild rumors were rife when
it was announced that orders have been
issued for the Second regiment to pro
ceed at once to Blue Island, 18 miles
out. Extra editions of all evening pa
pers, with warlike headlines, were
eagerly scanned bj- thousands of anxious
people. This report proved later to ba
unfounded. The first serious clash oc
curred when 200 deputy United
States marshals were surrounded at Blue
Island by 2,000 strikers, who openly de
fied federal authority. Weapons were
drawn on both sides and Deputy Mar
shal John A. Logan was painfully cut
with a knife, bnt when a bloody con
flict seemed imminent the deputies re
tired to their barrack cars to await re
inforcements, leaving the strikers mas
ters of the situation.
Locked Horns With the Authorities.
In the evening an injunction from the
United States conrt was read and bul
letined. Tho anthority of the court was
openly derided and after a few minutes
quiet the riotous spirit of the strikers re
asserted itself. At midnight reports of
other disorders were current, it being
stated that the strikers were tearing
down the bulletin mandate of the court.
Fearing to precipitate bloodshed the
Rock Island decided after its 8:30 ex
press had been gotten through not to
make any effort to move trains. Th-i
strikers have now locked horns with the
state and federal authorities. Tho rail
road officials are chafing under tho con
tinued embargo on business. The des
perate condition of their lato employes,
determined not to work themselves no
to allow ethers to do so. is evidenced by
the flood of reports of individual conflicts

A number of trains have been .derailed
by misplaced switches. A Panhandle
passenger train was partly ditched at

think they will be called out until the or
der of the courts has been violated and
the judges recommend that such a meas

the court aud justice. Unless the trouble
is brought to an end soon, it is my opin
ion the strike will terminate in blood
shed." The fiiemeu on the Lake Street Ele

of the strike is that the elevated road re

M. V. Powell, grand chief of the Or

are not taking any part in the strike.
We are affiliated with the other railroad
brotherhoods and will be guided by any
action taken by the federation. We
cannot afford to come into a strike
which was ordered without consultation
with the other railroad organizations. It
would have been better all around had Mr.
Debs aud his people, before ordering tho
strike, consulted with us, then he would
have had some claim upon us, but it is
now presumptuous for him to ask us to
strike at his bidding.'
GENERAL MANAGERS' BULLETIN.

On the Michigan Central the indications
are that there will bo trouble on ac
count of the employment of new men to
take the places of the striking switch
men. The Illinois Central is still in bad
shape regarding suburban business, but
is moving through trains. The Milwau

these roads occurred the most serious
Seventeen roads in Chicago are more
or less embarrassed by the strike and
many passenger trains are being moved
as on the Panhandle, under heavy guards
of deputy marshals for mail trains and
deputy sheriffs for other trains, in order
to get them through the strikers and
other sympathizers who congregate
along the tracks. The railroads have
not altered their position, the bulletin
continues, and they will not parley with
the men wia, ust to aarike. The places
of the men who struck will be filled as
fast as possi'tlf and force will bo met
with force to the extent of asking the
state for troops to keep the roads ops n
whereever their action becomes neces
sary. If the stato cannot afford ample
protection the railroads will ask the
United States government to send troop3
to the scene of th disturbance.
STRIKERS TRYING TO ARBITRATE.
Committee at St. Loufe Met a Cool Recep
tion From the Merchants Exchange.
St. Louis, July a. The status of the
railroad strike here Monday evening
was that of almost complete interruption
of freight traffic, while passenger trains
made up by yardmasters and a numbet
or terminal association switchmen whe
had returned to work were moving prac
tically on time. On both sides of the
river all switchmen have struck except
those of the Wa'jash and the St. Louis,
Keokuk and Northwestern. In all about
1,500 men have gone out in all the yards,
and perhaps 2,000 more have been thrown
out in unskilled lines of labor by the de
fection of the switchmen and their al
lies. The only addition to the ranks of
the strikers Monday were the freight
brakemen of the St. Louis division of the
Louisville and Nashville, who have laid
up that division. The managers of the

Delegation of Strikers Transferred Her te
Another Car so She Conld Reach Home.
DuNSiium, Cal., July . A felicitous
incident over the great strike on the
Southern Pacific system was witnessed
here Monday. Mrs. Jane Stanford,
widow of the late Leland Stanford, had
been for two days stranded in her private
car north of here. The burning of a
trestle on Sunday made it impossible for
her car to proceed. A delegation of the
striking A. R. U. men proceeded to her
car with carriages, brought her to this
city and put her on board another car
that the men had decked in bright colors
with flags and bunting. A brass band
headed the party.
While a locomotive was being coupled
to the cars Mrs. Stanford thanked the
men and assured them that were her

Denver, July 3. The strike is in the
hands of a general committee composed
of representatives of every department.
The shops of both the Santa Fe and the
Denver and Rio Grande are working
with full forces. The Rio Grande men

than 200 toas of coal is in the hands of

Slow progress was made, because every

CALLED TO ACCOUNT.
A WGRKINGMAN ASKS THE PRESI
DENT TO REDEEM HIS PLEDGES.
He Has Cheapened Goods, Labor, Wages
and the Presidency He Secured Votes
Under False Pretenses Where the Peo
ple Are Anxious to See Him.
One of the important things guaran
teed under your contract (with the na
tion) was that you would make things
cheaper. You have made some progress
in that direction which honesty requires
you should be given credit for. Arti
cles of food, however, though much
cheaper than under the lower tariff four
years back, are not much changed in
retail price from a year ago a fact I
throughly tested in my timo of want
and such difference as does exist, store
keepers tell me, is temporary and due
to the fact that the smaller quantity
used by the working and other classes
during the past year has left an unusual
store of such products on hand, which
farmers and owners have had to sell in
order to get money or avoid loss.
But some things you have made de
cidedly cheaper. You have cheapened
clothing, dry goods and nearly all kinds
of manufactured articles, temporarily
down to one-third the regular price and
one-half the cost to make, through bank
rupt stocks on all sides, with many rare
bargains which I would gladly jump at
if I only had my old job and money to
buy with. With these you have also
cheapened our labor until over 2,300,000
workingmen have been months unable
to sell it at any price and 3,000,000 more,
through reduced time or pay, for more
than an average of three-quarters its
former value. You have cheapened the
country by prostrating its industries, de
creasing the consumption of its products
and a loss of over $15,000,000,000 of busi
ness in a single year.
You have cheapened the nation before
the world by a miserable attempt to force
a brass mounted queen over a friendly
people. You have cheapened the presi
dency by its use to intimidate and cor
rupt the people's representatives in their
official action and to secure their co-op
eration in an effort to degrade a large
part and to cheapen the whole people.
You have cheapened your party by show
ing through its leaders its hypocrisy,
want of settled principles, incapacity to
legislate for the country's welfare and
its treachery to American and favorit
ism of foreign interests. You have cheap
ened your supporters by exhibiting their
weakness, cowardice, servility and their
readiness to sell their votes and the in
terests of their constituents for official
favors, and, lastly, you have cheapened
yourself by betra3Tal of public trust
through misappropriation and use of a
public office to repay money used to se
cure your election. In fact, you have
been so generally successful in this par
ticular that both you and your support
ers will pass down through the ages as
the Cheap Johns of American history.
For over six years you have repeatedly
told us that if we should ever lose our
jobs there is always plenty of good pay
ing work to be had. This you said to
secure our help, through our votes, in
your intended destruction of the salt
makers, wool raisers, woolen manufac
turers and other industries, and the
turning adrift of their help. A large
number of us who then believed you
now desire to see you about that state;
ment. We want yon to make it good;
to go to New York and find jobs for
from 70,000 to 100.000 idle there; to go to
Brooklyn and get .work for 05,000 to 8Q.?
000 in that cify; to Boston, with 89,000
there; to Buffalo, your old home, and
provide places for the 15,000 unemploy
ed, large numbers of whom helped to
raise you from harmless obscurity.
Go to Philadelphia, with its 90,000; to
Pittsburg, with 50,000 more; to Chicago,
with yet 65,000 more; to Cleveland, Cin
cinnati, Louisville, Indianapolis, Mil
waukee, St. Louis and San Francisco,
with their 75,000; to the manufacturing
districts of the eastern, middle and
western states; to the mining regions of
New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
West Virginia, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana,
Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Tennessee,
Alabama, Colorado. Nevada, Montana,
Idaho and California; the lumber sec
tions of Michigan, Wisconsin and the
northwest; the farming and wool rais
ing territory of the central, western,
northwestern, southwestern and Pacific
In fact, you are badly wanted in near
ly every city, village and township in
the eastern, northern, western, north
western, southwestern. Pacific and some
southern parts of the country to show
what over 2,800,000 of us have been un
able to find for ourselves good paying
jobs or any at all. And we want you
right away too. We want to go to work
at whistle time tomorrow morning. Not
only come yourself, but lock up your
wrecking congress and bring the other
Cheap Johns along with you. We want
to see them also. They made the same
statement and led us to give you and
them government jobs on the strength
of it. We don't want bombazine char
ity work or more promised soapsuds, but
good steady jobs, with hard cash at the
back of them in fact, our old places and
wages. From a Workingman's Letter to
A Word oa Kxports.
A free trader is always telling us that
under protection we are not able to sell
our goods in foreign markets, but that if
we have free trade we shall be able to
sell in every market in the world. Dur
ing the last 20 years England has been a
free trade country while America has
been protected. We can see how the ex
ports of the two countries have increased
from the following figures:
18TO-1880 aw 124.0
1880-1880 5J 39.7
Average increase 21,0 Ri.3
It thus appears that during these 20
years the average increase of exports has
oeen only 21 per cent in free trade Eug
land while it was 84.3 per cent increase
iu America. This fact is calculated to
tipset another free trade theory.
BOGUS TARIFF REFORM.
"Reform" is a sort of Jekyll and Hydo,
The double faced figure of Janus repeating.
The mantle he formerly carried with pride
Is now used to cover up all kinds of cheating.
With copper and lead and stuff that is base
He made yellow coin that was "queer" and
And when the attorney of state called his case
He said it was only "reform of the money.'
It had horns like a bull and a tail like a cat.
Claws, head, legs and trunk without any re

"What is that:-"
He declared it a worthy "reform of creation.
When our mills are closed up and our indus
And our gold sent abroad to pay foreign ad
vances. He tells the strapped workman to hold up his
It is only a needed "reform in finances."
When the toiler in idleness, hunger and want
Tries to borrow a dime from his hungrier
The goods he once made he could buy "cheap
And this is "reform for American labor."
Reform your protection and take off your tax.
Give the paupers of Europe your markets
Lay the burden of poverty on your own backs
Is the plan of the "tariff reform" and sages.
Stephen E. Koot, M. D.
In the Dentist's Chair.
,It has always been claimed by the
party of free trade that "unprotected"
industries are in no way affected by the
tariff. This 13 all wrong. What affects
one industry affects others, and if a pro
tective tariff causes prosperity directly
to one class of the community it indi
rectly brings prosperity to others.
The American Protective Tariff league
has sent blanks to 120 different dentists
in the city of New York propounding
the following query:
"Supposing 100 represents your collec
tions for the month of January, 1893,
what percentage of 100 more or less will
represent your collections for the month
of January, 1891'r''
The answers received showed a wide
range, in one case a dentist had only
collected 25 per cent as much last Janu
ary as he did in January. 1893. In an
other case the collections were 20 percent
larger than last year. But the average
of all the replies shows collections of
only 59 per cent. In other words, for
every $100 collected by these dentists in
January, 1893, they collected only $59 in
It appears that the Cleveland hard
times have not affected the amount of
work of the dentists in very many in
stances. But people call for less expen
sive work. Consequently the earnings
of the dentist are less, besides his being
nnnble to collect what he does earn. It
is a point that dentists in every city in
the country should remember that under
a-free trade administration collections of
money earned fell off 41 per cent within
a year. For every $100 they only got
$59. Protection to other industries makes
the dentist's business the more prosper
