A Cordial Welcome Extended at the
Capital of Wisconsin A. Visit
Made to the Fair
Farewell to Milwaukee.
MII.WAUKKK , Oct. 7. The day opened
bright and beautiful after a regular down
pour of rain during the night , and every
thing tended to make the few remaining
hours of the president's stay In Milwaukee
of the most pleasant nature. About 8:30 :
B. m. carriages containing the presidential
party and reception committee left the
I'lanklnton house and proceeded to the sol
diers' homo by way ot the Grand avenue
and Blue Mound road. The sides of the
uvcn no weio lined with people
who doffed tholr hats and waved
handkerchief ; , while an occasional chcci
broke forth as some enthusiastic individual
caught sight of his political chief , and im
parted his enthusiasm to these around.
When the cavalcade arrived at the soldiers' '
home , the maimed veterans were drawn up
In line and saluted the president and wlfo a ;
tiny drove down the line through the
grounds. The cannon In front of the home
building meanwhile boomed forth the presi
dential salute. The tlmolottboforo the depar
ture of the tram was so brief that no stet
was maelo , and the carriage drove very rapIdly -
Idly through the streets of the south side
up Into the residence portion of the Seventh
ward to Laki nark , wboro a hand
some drive way led down to the Northwestern
depot. A largo crowd had crowded
around the decorated pavllllon on
the platfoim for fully an hour be
fore the distinguished party arrived ,
and when the president's carriage came Intc
view it was greeted with a round of cheers ,
which continued until the train left the
depot. The appearance of Mrs. Cleveland
on the platform was a signal for a special
outburst of enthusiasm from the ladles , whc
waved tholr handkerch'cfs ' and parasols In
accompaniment to the cheering. Mrs.
Cleveland looked bright aim fresh ,
notwithstanding the continual round pf re
ceptions and lovoca which she lias undergone ,
and smiled sweetly as she accompanied hei
husband to the car. Colonel Vllas was also
the recipient of an outburstof applause as he
stopped out of his carriage and vanished
, into the president's car. The train pulled oul
; of the depot at 10:110 : , tully halt an
i hour later thnn was Intended.
No stops are to bo made between hero and
Madison , b.A the train will slow up at target
stations to give the people a chance to sue
the president and his wifo. No accident 01
any other disagreeable feature has Intoferrei
to mar the president's pleasure In this city
and the entire party were highly dellghtce
With their treatment and admirable arrange
incuts which characterized tholr receptlor
and entertainment.
Cleveland In Wisconsin's Capital.
MADISON , Wls. , Oct. 7 , On the arrival o
the presidential train hero this afternoon th <
party was accorded an enthusiastic receotloi
and wore escorted to the cnpltol grounds
where tbo welcoming address was made b ;
Judge Cole , chief justice of Wisconsin.
In reply President Cleveland said : "Afto
a week spent in travel and In visiting tin
people of the great west wo have como to res

the most beautiful In location and scenery o
all the cities of this region. Though wo sei

performance of Important public duty am
who has oariiud , as ho has received , tin
respect and esteem of every citizen wli
desires the welfare of his country. So ou
desire to actually see you and to knov
you better is perfectly natural. It seemei
to mo whnn 1 planned th

inako our first stop for rest When I con
cclvcd the Idea of staying at Madison eve

ZOUB and the hospitality of the postrnaste
general , all 1 had to do WPS to Imagine tha
wo would bo very much fatigued when wi
reached hero and in need of the rest I wa
determined we should havo. Thus wo ari
here and tired enough to justify my plans.1
After speaking further lu pralso ot tin
beauty of the city , its surroundings and th <
university , the president concluded : " 1 expect
pect to heartily enjoy my stay hero and t
always hereafter cherish pleasing recollec
tlons of your city and its Inhabitants. "
Upon the conclusion of the spocchmaklni
the party entered the capltol milldlng , tin
doors of which wore closed for a few minute
while the reception committee and ladle
were presented to the president and Mrs
Cleveland. After this the doors were openet
nnd for about two hours the people poured ii
and passed by the president. The town
, thouirh not very large Itself , was crowded t
overflowing with people from all the sur
rounding country. When the roceptloi
ended Mrs. Cleveland went at one
to the residence of Postmaster Genera
Vllas , where she spent the res
of the afternoon In quiet. The president , ac
rompanled by Governor Rusk and Colone
Vilau , went to the Dane county fair croundt
where again the people had an opportunlt
to see him. This evening Mr. and Mrs. Vila
gave a dinner to the president , It being

Among the guests were Governor and Mr :
Jtusk , Chief Justice Cole and Mayor Conkll
and wlfo. The town Is gorgeously decorate
la all conceivable styles , the adornment ei
the grounds and mansion ot Colonel Vila
being superb.

the dismissal was because the legal talent ot

number responded last evening to an adver

Cleveland hall , Fitzroy square , to sympathize
and to protest against tno execution ol the

Mrs. Cleveland's husband to say that this
hall was so named before he became conspic

him. 1 went to the locality In search ot the
meeting. It is a Bohemian locality. I found
the doors padlocked. A janitor Informed me
that the anarchists who had hired the hall
were to-day refused its use by the timid cock ,

Buchanan's Bounce.
MINNEAPOLIS , Oct. 7. J. P. MeGaughoy ,
iecretary of the co-oporativo board of the
Knlehts of Labor , said this morning that the
'csultof ' the vote In the case of James I } ,
Juclianan , rejected delegate from District
issombly 89 , of Denver , as given by the
alter , was false and that the vote was
mammons against Buchanan.
General Secretary Lltchtnan presented his
report to-day. It was very voluminous. It
ihows that the number of members reported
n good standing at the last session of the
; cneral assembly was 703,000. The receipts
'or ' the fiscal year ending July 1 are shown
; o be 838S.7UO , giving , with the balance ou
land , a grand total of S" < 08,000. The consid
eration of the question of establishing
co-ooeratlve savings association was recotn-
nendod ; also that assemblies oo made com
pulsory Instead of permissive. Mr. Litch-
uau figured the decrease In membership
since the lust general assembly as 10.i,000.
He Intimates that the bulk of this decrease
was composed of material that had proved
itself weakness rather than strength.
Among the recommendations made by the
general secretary Is one that the subject of
ehtaoiishlng a co-operative savings associa
tion be carefully considered by the commit
tee on the stain ot the order and If deemed
advisable , proper authority be given to secure
on act of Incoiporatlon for the organisation
and management ot such institution. The
secretary further recommends that state as
semblies bo made compulsory Instead of
permissive ; thatthero be legislation which
will ninko more stringent tha prohibition of
the use of the name ot the order or any ot Its
symbols for business purposes. On this
point the secretary says the general assembly
would bo justified in passing a law placing
a boycott on every article upon which tin
Initials ot the order or any ol
Its BViuboIs were used without the
sanction of the general executive
board. Regarding the embezzlement ol
tunds by local ollieers who subsequently ab
scond , the secretary recommends it b <
stated in the constitution that a notice o :
tiialbesent to the last known address 01
the absconding officer bo considered lo-ra
summons. Mrs. L. M. Barry , general iuvestl
gator , made her annual report embracing thi
result of her Inquiries into the condition ol
the working women of the country. Havlni
no legal authority she lias been unable ti
make as thorough an Investigation in manj
places as she would like , but upon tin
strength of her observation and her expert
ence Hho asks that more consideration b <
given to , and more thorough educatlona
measures bo adopted , on behalf of worklni
women , the majority of whom are entire ! ;
lnr.orant ot ecomonlc and Industrial ques
tions. She recommends : that It bo raadi
compulsory upon every district
state or national assembly , to havi
one or more educators ; tha
organizers be urged to put forth greater el
forts to Inculcate the true principles ot thi
order In the minds of newly organl/ed locals
that the order turn its whole undevlded at
tention to the forming of co-operative eutet
prises , particularly in manufacturing men's
women's and children's garments , as in till :
branch women suffer most from poor wages
That we hero and now , " says the report
"adopt a practical line of policy for uproot
Ing corrupt and unjuit systems , in pursuit o
which there will be no time lor making th
order the battle field wherein to avenue rea
or imaginary or personal grievances. In
stances of cruel treatment of working womei
are cited.
The report of the general executive bean
is very long. The committee takes up li
regular order l.bK ) eases on which It hai
passed during the year. Most of those an
insignificant and few have any public iutOl
est. Among the most Important document
referred to Is the report ot the commute * 01
conspiracy appointed at tlio Richmond con
ventlon. Alter preliminary report of Invos
tigatlons and results , the committee has till
to say ou bo-calted ' uiacKBsts : " "You
committee are unammoii.-jly of the opinloi
that a speedy example should be made n
some way of the tnanv cases ot consplracj
that are constantly arising , as It is very ovl
dent the laws are being used forintlmldatloi
of our brothers everywhere , with scarcely ai
exception , and that the sooner such oxampl
Is successfully made the hotter It will be , no
only tor the Knights ot Labor , but for societ1
generally. Employers should bo made to tin
durstand that laws are not akiuo made fo
their special use and benefit. "
The members of the order are recommendoi
to refuse to purchase crockery made b'
Knowlos , Taylor it Co. , of East Liverpool
O. , on account of tno concern's opposition t <
the order. A great number of other firm
goods for similar reasons are "not recom
mended. " The report from the committee 01
the state of the order rehearsed a dlscussloi
with a similar committee from i
trades union last December when ai
attempt was made to settle grievance
between the unions and the Knights. li
closing the committee said : Onr opinion i
that the so-called grievances , if they do ex
1st , are rather acceptable than otherwise t
some persons in their organizations , bein
used by them to accomplish selfish purpose.1
and wo believe a circular fsom our order sen

At the afternoon session reports were re
co I veil from the committees on education t < n
compilation ot conspiracy laws. The sec re
tary of the co-optjratlvo board presented It
repoit which manes many valuable sugge ;
tions. Among other things It Is asked thn
the board b given power to establish
co-operativo agricultural and macliiner
manufactory to bo run on a gram
scale. The supposition Is that shouli
the convention ratify this rccommoi :
datlon , the headquarters of the concern
corn will bo in this city and Its works ad
jacent. Another recommendation Is t
adopt a co-operative farm In Minnesota , ii
Crow Wing county. The statement of th
executive board with reference to the dllll
culty with district assembly 120 makes , lirsi
the point that John Morrison , the prim
mover In thu trouble. Is not a member i
good standing. The Richmond conventlo
sustained this decision. Ho has ha
opportunities to reinstate himself , but ha
not taken advantage of them. The distrU
steadily refused to obey orders , oven nfti
the Hlgglus & Co. strike was settled , an
resolved In Its meeting not to comply wit
the order of the board. Mr. Powderly sal
to-night : "This Is the best convention tli

Acres tn the St. I'anl lload.
WA HINOTOX , Oct. 7 , The secretary of
he Interior to-day rendered two Important
decisions affecting tha rigfit of land grant
railroads to Indemnity lands , the question
being the extent to which the right of sclec-
Ion to such lands can bo oxnrclsed. The
question arose upon the adjustment made by
ho commission of the general land officeof
hograntof the Chicago , bt. Paul , Minneap
olis * Omaha railway. The Siocietary re
verses the proposition ot the commissioner
hat the company was not entitled to
ndemnlty on account of prior grants for
other purposes , Including swamp grants ,
Indian reservations , and moieties of othei
toads under contemporaneous grants. The
commissioner also changed the terminal Hin
ts of the grant so as to exclude thcrnfrom
several thousand ncrrs which wore
'ormerly Included therein. 1'hls , the secre
tary holds , cannot bo done. The commis
sioner treated tlio grant to the Wisconsin
Ccntial road as contemporaneous with that
of the Omaha road , and deducted from the
atter's gran tone-halt the lands within and
overlapping the ten tulle limit of thu formet
and the six mlle limit of the latter , amount-
nr to about lU'J.OOO acres. The secretary
loTds that the grant to the Omaha company
within Its six mlle limit was prior In date
and awards that company all hinds within
.lie . conflicting limits. He also restores to
the company 65,000 acres deducted bv the
commissioner for the Wisconsin Farm Mort-
! Rgo company. Tlio second decision nppllef
o the Haylicld branch and deals witti the
company's fatluro to construct Its road upon
a line of definite location. The secretary
Inds ample reason for deflection on account
of engineering difficulties , etc. ThoelTectol
ho decisions Is to allow the company aboul
204ouo acres additional indemnity for the
naln line and l' > ,000 acres for the Bayllold
Utah Commission Minority Report
\VA8iiiNflTON , Oct. 7. John A. McClor-
nand and A. B. Carlton , of the Utah com
ntssion , have submitted a minority report
llssontlng from some ot the views of th <
majority of the commission , recently sub
mitted. The dissent Is partlculaily as regard ;
the general animus and propriety of Intro
luclng theological discussion Into a seculai
document The dlssontera say that early Ir
the present year they thought they discov
ered a disposition among the Mormons t <
clvo up the practice of polygamy and liavi
used tholr influence to Induce the Mormons ti
take such a step. The commissioner
disclaim any interference In the question o
statehood for Utah , but consider that a stroni
advanced position Is gained when the mas
ot the people arc Induced to place themsulve
on record hi opposition to polygamy. Tin
dissenters say that while the great mass o
the Mormon people are making efforts to
the abandonment ot polygamy , they dcclln
to recommend further legislation of a hostll
and aggressive character , almost if not en
tlrely destructive to salt-govern mont and In
dieting punishment on tno Innocent as wel
as the eullty. The commissioners Insteai
recommend the adoption of an amcndinen
to tfle constitution prohibiting polygamy ii
any form.

ern Union Telegraph company occurs next
Wednesday , and In the proxies that have
) een sent out , the shareholders are informed
hat the meeting will bo an unusually Impor
tant one. The capital stock'wlll then bo In-
reased , but it was hinted yesterday that
somethlng"moro than 85,000,000 required for
ho Baltimore & Ohio pmclmso might be
added. It was belloved In some quarters
hat other opposition lines , with the Mackay-
jennott cables , had been secured. In reply
oan Inquiry on this point , Gould said posi
tively that there were no negotiations In pro-
cross , and several directors declared that the
ncreaso of capital would not exceed
55,000,000. There will be no general change
n the rates at present , although there will be
j natural adjustment , now that the
companies have been united. The
10 cent rate may be advanced In
some cases , but this course will
lo pursued only where competition has been
the severest. A member of the executive
committee remarked : "Thero need not bo
the slightest fear that the consolidation will
result In an advance of telegraph rates.
Gould's views on this subject are well
known and the directors are fully satisfied
with the success of his policy. There could
be ) no general advance oven If the com
pany was not making money at present
rates because It would oxclto opposition.
Tlio day of high rates has passed forever. "
II. Victor Nowcomb , talking about the
matter , said : "I think this transaction
changes the whole situation and speculative
temper. It will bo of great benefit to the
street , although I do not look for such an
etfect as would bo produced lu former days.
But the now stock of the Western
Union goes into the hanels of Important for
eign houses , who will not bosatishcd to nego
tiate it at any 5 per cent advance. The prob
abilities aru that It will lead to the listing of
stock on the Louelon stock exchange , tor the
Inlluonco of the syndicate will bo likely to
allay nrevlous opposition. The result of
long telegraph contest demonstrates that
private capital cannot successfully compete
with the Western Union organization at any
rate ? . There is not likely to bo any new en
terprise started in that direction tor a lone
time. "

A dispatch from Sioux City says that ho was
arrested on a charge of retailing malt and
sphltuous liquors without n license. The
defendant was discharged , but the evidence
went to show that ho kept constantly on
hand an amount of llquor.s. A number ol
witnesses testified to having gotten from
Him beer on several occasions. A
number of others admitted to having
got hold of beer by using a win
dow and crawling Into It where if
was stored and taklni ! as much as a dozen
bottles at a time. The liquor he kept , ho ex
plained , was for the use of an Invalid wife ,
The prosecution tailed to prove that he re
ceived any amount for liquor or beer , and sc
ho was discharged. It seemed a little pecul
iar , however , that the beer could b stolen
trom the cellar so systematically and In sucli
quantities without somn notice or piotesta

should have been stored for medical purpose !
also looked a lltclu shy. In company will :

said : "I'm going toarouso the eastern cities
on the question , and before 1 have
inishod I intend to start the ball a-iolllne in
Canada. The antl-Chlneso war Is waging on
ho Pacific coast as it never has before. It la
ho only formidable question that labor 1ms
o contend with to-day. The Chinese have
hrown thousands of Americans out otvorlc
and they still continue to como by the ship-
oad. The Chinese law Is adoad liitter. "
' 'How can that bo ? "
"I'll toll you. There Is a provision in tha
restriction act permitting n Chinaman al
ready here to return to China with a certifi
cate that will penult him to land again In
America. This piovtslon Is used as a loop
tolo to smuggle through Chinamen by tha
.housands. Chinamen who have certificates
give them to these who have none , and as all
Chinamen look alike , no ono Is the wiser. "
"How do the others get through ? "
"They are brought before the court on a
writ of habeas corpus and the courts have do-
clded that they have a right to land , and ,
again , the corruption of the federal courts
out theio tn something appalling. They arc
as venal as was ancient Home. Ervrythluit
is controlled by the bosses and it Is ot no use
to fe-ek tediuss In the courts. "
"How are you come o conduct your cam
paign ? "
" 1 am going to advocate two methods of
redress in New York this fall. In the first
plnco 1 am coin ? to advocate the Mitchell
tilll and urge itsuassairoln the next congress.
It Is for absolute restriction and will receive
the hearty suppoitot the I'aclllo slope. And
then 1 shall advlso the New York laboring
men to vote thn demociatic ticket. It Is a
Ir.ct that the democratic party of Now York
Is the antl-Chlueso party and the laboring
man's party. Kveiy democratic congressman
from that state voted for absolute restriction
and every republican voted against it. "
"Will this agitation over develop Into an
other political party ? "
" 1 think not. The democratic party wll I
ospotibo our cause and will bring the ontlro
Pacific slope into our lines. "
Then you will support Cleveland In
"If ho continues as he has so far. If to-day
were election day ho would carry California
and all the rest of the Pacific states. You
see , we aie just exactly where wo were
twenty years"ago. It has been a gioat back-
set.and is all duo to judicial coiruption. "
"What is the sentiment In San Francisco
In regard to the Paclnc railroad Investiga
tion ? "
"The western people would think a great
deal more e.f congress It It would appoint a
commmittoa to investigate- the acts and cor
ruption of thu federal courts. Oh , that la
such a common thlnir that the people think ;
nothing ot It. The legislature wishes to bo

tor was quietly but firmly denied admission
to the jail by tlio managers In chargo. Ho
went away lamenting and telling how four
years ago ho had advised Parsons to leave
bombs alone and take to ballots or ho woulel
suicly get his neck In the halter , but Par
sons only laughed. Kearney says that on
reaching Now York lie will make a scries of
speeches , taking tlio mound that thnque'stion
ot questions lor workmginen at this time Is
not far off the Issue ol land taxation , but
t'io ' laboring people should concentrate ) every
