It Finds An Enthusiastic Champion
In Senator Farwoll.
REASONS FOR CONTINUING IT.
Reagan nml Stcwnrt Present tlio
Other Side of tlio Question The
Dakota Division Hill
"WisnixoTOjf , April 10. Mr. Stewart in
troduced n bill In the senate to-day granting
n pension ot W.OOO a year to the widow of
Chief Justice Wnlto.
After the reference of a number of meas
ures the conference report on the bill to divide -
vide the Great Sioux reservation into soper-
nto smaller reservations was agreed to.
On motion of Mr. Farwoll , "tho bill provld-
ing-for the Investment of certain funds in
the treasury was taken up , and Mr. 'Farwoll
proceeded to address the ecnato. Ho gave
notice of hla intention to oiler two amend
ments to the bill. Ono of them directs the
secretary of the treasury to Issue and soil
to national banks nt par for United States
notes , United States 2 > per cent bonds , re
deemable after flfty years , tto bo used by
banks no security for tholr circulating notes ,
the notes to bo Issued at tho' full
par value of the bonds. It also directs the
secretary of the treasury to invest the sur
plus funds held in the treasury , including the
amount to be received tor these bonds , In the
purchase of any United States bonds in open
market and replace all the sinking fund.
The other amendment authorizes the so ere.
tary of the trcasur.yln order to enable national
banks to maintain and increase their circula
tion nnd prevent the ultimate destruction of
bmikfl by the purchase or payment of the
natloilal debt , to receive from banks , to so-
curo'tholr circulating notes , state , county or
municipal bonds , upon which interest lias
heretofore been promptly paid and whoso
market value is equal to or greater than their
face value , bearing interest at not less than 4
per cent , suck bonds not to bo received by the
treasurer at inoro than 15 per cent of their
par value , nor until the approval of the secre
tary of the treasury , treasurer of the United
Status nnd comptroller of the currency shall
bo endorsed upon them.
Mr. Farwcll went on to say that the bill
was good enough BO far as it wont , but it did
not include the whole finance question , whicli
bo regarded as of paramount interest. It only
proposed to tomporlzo with It. It simply re
duced the interest on 4 per cent bonds to 3) per
cent. Those bonds amounted to $ TOOOUO,000
nnd matured in 1007 and it authorized na
tional banks to receive circulation at par
upon them and upon all othoUnitad States
bonds , The bill did not rotnedy the evils of
the present financial condition. The two
amendments which ho proposed to oftcr ,
would ho thought , cure those evils. Ho
would , if ho could , so nmond the financial
legislation of the country that tlio national
i banking system the best ever devised
should bo continued. His amendments , if
adopted , would enable national banks to use
the present debt of the United States. Tf
that debt could bo continued , at its present
volume , the legislation proposed by lilm
would bo adcquato to the maintenance of the
national banking system , but ho recognized
the fact that the American people were
nnxious and determined to pay the debt.
Under his amendment the banks would
have a new leuso of life nnd would bo
nblc to furnish the country with all the cir
culating medium required , limited only by
the amount of the national debt. If it were
desired that thoirpormuncntcxistcnco should
bo secured nnd the necessary volume of cur
rency furnished through thorn , the authority
should bo given to thorn to furnish other
bonds so a basis for their circulation accord ]
ing as the national debt was reduced ana
retired. Without that authority , ns tlio
national debt was paid , banks would bo com-
p611cd to give up the circulation secured
thereby , nnd that circulation would , of
course , bo destroyed.
Tlio real trouble was in the want of
legislation forcing all the commercial iuter-
fcsts of the country to base their medium of
exchange on the national debt and in the re
tirement of that debt without the substitute
of some other basis oC their circulation.
Bank circulation was a necessity and could
not , without detriment to trade , bo replaced
by any fixed governmental issue. Ho
would , if ho had the power , pusi
a law now that would perpetuate tlio
national banking system. Government
was organized to protect the people.
It had no other duties. Congress ought to
pay off tlio national debt , both bonds and
notes , and authorize the people , under the
national bunk act , with suitable ) amendment H ,
to furnish themselves with nil the money
needed. The poonlo will then furnish their
p\vn circulating medium in such quantities as
Iho business of the country required , and
tlio.y would not bo subject- any legislation
by congress nor have their interest menaced
and jeopardized as at present by a deposit of
? 01.000,000 in national banks , subject to the
call of the secretary of the treasury.
The government should got out of business
tit all kinds and especially out of the money
'business ' , poonlo should bo provided with
adequate laws to manage their own affairs in
their own way. Uauks were ono of the evi
dences of advanced civilization. By them
nnd through them the business of the coun
try was done , only five per cent of it buing
douo with inonay. Ho did not regard
the banks as monopolies nor did
ho chitractcrlzo them us the money
power of tlio country , Ho thought them the
reverse of nil.
Ho didn't believe In sumptuary laws , legal
tender laws , nor usury laws , but ho did bo-
Hove in that kind of government which hail
the fewest lawn , giving the people the largest
liberties and guaranteeing good order , good
morals and adequate protection. In pur
suance of that law he would not require any
otio by law to take silver or greenbacks or
national bank notes in payment of debts. Ho
would leave that matter entirely to ngrco-
incut and contract. Ho would permit any
citizen of tlio United States to no to the
mints and have his bullion coined Into
' money. Ho would ulso permit him to have
his silver bullion coined into money , hav
ing gold as the standard , but ho deemed it
impossible to have two standards. There
could bo but ono standard. In his judgment
the thing that would tnaka no dif
ference to anybody in this country
was to accept the inevitable and make the
readjustment nt once. If it were desired to
make the silver dollar equal to gold , thu
requisite quantity of silver should bo put
into It. Then nobody would bo cheated.
In. conclusion ho said : "Under thcso
amendments , or by some other similar legis
lation , I would refund the present public debt
nt 2W per cent at live years , nnd authorize
national banks to receive circulation at par
tor such amounts as they might USD for that
purpose. I would require the secretary of
Iho treasury to invest this surplus in tlio pur
chase of any indebtedness of the government
la open market from tlma to time. I would
bnvo Huspendod the requirements of the sink
ing fund , bccausa if the secretary is author
ized to buy the imbllo debt with the surplus
from tuna to time , the requirements of the
law creating that fund would bo no longer
necessary. For the purposu of enabling ttio
jieoplu to inanugo their ulTairs , without inter
ference on the part of the government , I
would allow thorn to maintain a volume of
national bank circulation up to the amount of
the national debt by state , county and muni
cipal bonds as provided for in the last umcnd-
jnont which I proposed. If such legislation
cau bo passed we would hoar uo morn of
tnoney stringency or panlci. "
Mr. Reagan said his wish was to see the
country relieved ol the bonded debt us early
ka possible. Ho did not deny that the na
tional banks had subserved u very valuable
purpose during and since the war. but ho re
gretted that the time was npprouchlng when
? Loy should become extinct. They had
fcko-vn thcmsolve * to be guided by a policy
jbecuilarljr then * own and at war with tbo
neat interests of the country. He would al
low the charters of uationnl banks to expire

would authorize the issue of treasury notes.
but not as legal tender. Uo wobld protest
against tbo policy ot continuing the bonded
debt for flro ycnrn nnd ngaiftst the policy of
perpetuating national banks.
Mr. Stewart protested against the dc-
stntetlonaf silver in the * interest of Hint
"mushroom-stuff" which had already brought
distress upon the countryi National bnnk
circulation ought no to bo fos
tered any longer. The precious metals
should bo used for circulation
and -when they were not sufficient paper
money should bo issued , not by private cor-
porntions , but by the government of the
United States. Tlio greatest enemies of the
country were those xvho nmnngod the circula
tion of the country sfl n ? W tnako hard times
or good tlmoi to suit tholr speculation.
At the close of Mr. StoWnrt's remarks the
senate resumed the consideration of the bill
for the mlmisilon of thu slate of South Da
kota and for the organization of the territory
of North Dakota , Mr. Bpooner addressed
the senate in favor of the bill. Ho nrgucd
that the question ot the division of the terri
tory had been submitted to the whole people
and bcon decided in favor of division by a
majority of over G.OOO. As to the suggestion
matlo by Mr. Huller that 80,000 voters of
Dakota nnd bcon eo Intlltlcrcnt to the ques
tion that they stayed awny from the polls ,
and that thorofdVo It was not n fair
test of the popular will , ho drew n distinc
tion between thO.cnBes of voters in northern
states who remained from the polls throtlgh
indifference nml of votars in the southern
states who were kept awny through Intimida
tion. Aa'to the claim inado by Mr. Butler
that there was no danger to bo apprehended
from the imperial states , ho questioned it
and assorted that the great empire state of
TOXOH did menace by her monstrous terri
tory the Interests of the other sections of the
country. She had In the other houao the
chairman of the Judiciary committee , the
chnlrmnn of the committee on ways and
means , a committee which dealt with the
dearest interests of New England , New
York , Pcnns.ylvanla and nil the
country , and tno chairman of the com
mittee on claims , while tho. great state of
Now York had no voice In the committee on
ways nnd means.Vhysuch preponderance
in political influence on the part of the om-
plra stnto of Texas ) It was not duo to the
wealth , loyalty dr intelligence of her people.
It was duo to two things : Her solid democ
racy and her territory. No such empire
states were wnntod in the union. Ho did not
bollovo South Dakota would bo admitted by
this congress , but ho thought ho might safely
prophecy that before long there would bo
elected a congress that would recognize her
rights lind gladly welcome her. The bill
went ovur till to-morrow , and after executive
session the senate "adjourned.
OX' , April 10. The house passed
the bill extending the time for the completion

A motion was'mado to suspend the rules

The Big Strike of Now York Urowors
Goes Into Effect.
NEW YOUK , April 15. The brewery lock
out began at noon to-day , aud moro than
5,000 brewers , brewery wagon drivers , inul-
sters , helpers , wagou makers , coopers , paint
ers and apprentices in this city , Brooklyn ,
Jersey City , Newark , Paterson and Staten
Island are out of work.
According to the Instructions of their
unions every brewer in every ono of the
above named cities returned to work as usual
this morning. There was no kind of demon
stration. Just before noon the proprietors
of each brewery called their men together.
They were Instructed , in n short address ,
that owing to the resolution that the National
Brewers' association had seen lit to adopt ,
their services would no longer bo required.
They were informed that the brewery em
ployers had unanimously decided to bo
their own bosses and would not , nnd
never will hereafter , submit to any
thing of a dictatorial nature from
their men. The bosses considered the couj
tract with tlio journeymen brewers which
the union demanded the employers to sign
was decidedly of this nature , nnd consequent
ly had refused to sign it. The men were
further informed that should they feel dis
posed to submit tholr names for reemployment
ment as individuals and were willing to dis
connect themselves from their unions and
recoguizo their employers as their only
bosses , the proprietors would bo perfectly
willing to re-employ them , give them the
saino pay with the same number of hours
work , and 'employ thorn under the same con
ditions as they bad worked under formerly.
When the time came the men
quietly departed after receiving their
pay , and the doors of every brewery
were closed and business for the
time is suspended in this city. As fast as
the men drew their pay they proceeded nt
once to their headquarters , where the strike
committee took their names and to what
brewery they belonged. The strikers say
that while the bosses have secured j\ largo
number of now mon , they are incompetent

FA mi AND GARDEN.
The grass cut by a machine doing1 the
work of pix raon is just as good as if the
machine only did the work of one man ;
and the bono and niusclo derived from
food are just as good when the animal
has all ho can properly use ns it would if
ho'was only half fed. Stock growth is a
matter that can and should be controlled
by the powers of the system and not thiS
old ideas of time derived from , observa ;
tions of the half-wild , half-starvodj
small stomached races. Whore is the
proof or the evidence of this weakness
and immaturity outside of theoryV The
two your old steoi1 pulls more pounds in
the prize ring than the six year old ok
of the sauio weight did years ago.
One of the most useful facts for breed
ers of all classes of stock to learn , and
one which will aid them in contending
with hard times and low prices , is that
the time of producing'a marketable an
imal can bo very much shortened , and
by eo doing the proiitgreatly inoreasod.-
It is well kno\yn now that with the im
proved breeds of pigs six or eight
months are enough to lit the pork for
market , whereas it formerly took eigh
teen months. But in spite of the great
change in this particular , there is iv
class of mon who contend that the beet
from n two-year old steer , thouph ho
may bo as largo and heavy and fully de
veloped as the six-year old ox of format1
times , is not mature , and cannot bo BO
good as the tlosh of an older animal.
The banio mon cry out aguinst pamper
ing , stulllng , forcing end ovarfoediug ,
when they see u six-mouths old colt cat
as many oats as n good sized rooster
would require. They think that an
animal that grows rapidly must bo ten

subject to diseases.
Gultu.ro ot'IUuckhcrry and Raspberry ,
Some people will drive from thirty to
fifty miles , and spend days of time in
their search for 'wild berries , whpn n
much moro plentiful supply of bettor
quality could have been obtained at
homo by investing half the time and ox-
pouso an their culture. Blackberries
and raspberries are not difficult tq raiso.
They are quite hardy , and will seldom
kill if given no protection nt nil in
winter. That they do kill down occa
sionally in an unusually severe winter
is no doubt the reason why they are not
moro generally grown in our gardens.
Although they may not bo injured for
years if allowed to face the winter with
out covering , it docs not pay to take
chances in this way when they can bo
so easily protected. Their 'pliable
stems can bo bent dowu , and coyer&d at
very llttlo expense.
It is auiio an udvunwgo to grow them
in rows in couplers about thrpo foot
apart. Between * llieso couplets nro
wider spaces , say six foot. In autumn
the two rows are wsnt in together , both
occupying a slncflfe narrow space , for
which ono unbrokfrn striti of covering
will answer. In Jip summer season the
branches ttiay bo Jhrown over into the
wide spaces , so fcht the narrow ones
may bo cultlvatcvh-P
Such bushes ar4 often bent ilown and
covered too early ! 'lh the season. Or
dinary freezing will hot injure them in
the least. It is Ijofitho freezing alotio
that injures theiJKjjit is tlio alternate
freezing and thawing that is so fntal to
the bushes , and U'fitte , too , for that mat

John J. Moore , oPPlnltifiald , Ind. , de
livered nn address before the Hcndrlcks
County ( Ind : ) association , -which ho
gave it as his judgment , based on ob
servation tin d experience , that it is not
profitable for any farmer to engage inbreeding
brooding and training fast horses , and
trying to farm at the same time. Draft
horses , ho thought , pay well , and could
bo raised much cheaper than cattle , and
at much moro prollt. "It is the experi
ence of all who have bred and raised
horses , " said Mr. Moore , "th'it they are
always on the market at good , steady ,
paying prices , and the farmer is not
oven required to have them broken , ex
cept to halter. " The draft horse was
the subject of many papers at farmers'
institutes this winter , and the fast horsemen
mon no longer monopolize attention.
There is a general desire to improve the
grade , and in many parts of the west
farmers club together to buy an im
ported draft Btullion , each having1
several mares to breed. By this means
the best class of stallions is obtained ,
nnd the improvement in the quality of
the horses becomes marked in a short
GOOHC Fa rilling.
From the number of inquiries that wo
receive concerning' geese there must
surely bo a general Awakening On that
subject. It has notocomo any too soon.
Geese are surely I the most profitable
fowl the farmer can raise , and are es
pecially adapted fti' largo farms and
whore ono desires to raise fowls in largo
numbers. There n' .d bo no expensive
buildings erected .for them , nor yards
fenced in with higlx- priced fencing , for
tnoy can bo kept anywhere that a hog
can , and need vory-jLittlo euro. All that
a liock of geese need for at least nine
months of the year1 is plenty of pasture
and wator. The almost worthless hill
sides and waste places that wo see on
too many farms might bo made the most
profitable ones by herding a flock of
geese upon them.The number of geese
that these places wquld support would
have to bo determujjad by experiment ,
but it is safe to say fliat any farmer who
knovys nothing about goose farming'
would bo almost horrified to know how
much money ho has lost in the past by
not rearing geese. As a family fowl ,
there is nothing that beats geese very
badly. The farmer's wife , who thinks
she will never find anything to take the
place of fried chicken , wo say , try a
few broiled goslings , or green geese , as
they are called in market , and she will
bo agreeably surprised to line something
superior. A fat goose is equal , in every
respect , if not bettor , when baked , than
turkey. And who 1ms over known the
delight of a good feather bed and will
ing to bo without one ?

There is no other fruit so comiron on
the farm as the currant. Its haruinoss
and adaptability to all conditions ac
count for this to a considerably extent ,
while the excellent quality of the fruit
makes it most deservedly popular with
all. Were it not M > hardy and te
nacious of life it would not be so com
monly found on the farm , for , as a rule ,
the care givca it is very
slight. A row of bushes is usually
found alongside the fence , or be
tween the applotrecs , where the roots
are bound with the over-encroaching
sod , and the whole institution smoth
ered by weeds and grass. They will
continue to exist under all these disad
vantages for years , yielding a scanty
crop of inferior quality. Like all other
plants the currant will amply repay

CHICAOO , April 10. [ Special Telegram
to the BBK.I There was another sharp ml-
vance in wheat to-day nnd a largd proportion
of it was maintained , It was not so much
nny now thing that caused it as the growing
conviction that Some of the old and disre
garded news was really worth attention.
The condition of the winter wheat crop soolm
to bo the governing factor In the situation
nnd the belief that the condition la not Rood.
.Somotof the speculative houses employ
ngents to travel through tub eountrjand re
port ujwn the condition. It was the word
which came from thcso men confirming nnd
oven exceeding former reports which fright
ened the shorts this morning , Moreover
some influence Is felt In buying orders Ir&m
the country which were moro numerous to
day than for many weeks past. The decrease
of 01,000 bushels In the visible 'supply was
rather less than tlio majority of the trade
expected nnd helped a later reaction some
what. May wheat opened nt 70'c , , which
was % c higher than Saturday's close , and
after selling at 70 @ 70J o advanced almost
without n halt to Sl c , dropped back toSO c ,
advanced to Sic. fell slowly until 80c was
touched , and the fluctuations thcrcaftorworo
between 80 > o and S0c , both points being
touched several times. The 1 o'clock cldso
wnsatSOj c , Juno wheat opened at 81 'c ,
sold at Sic then up to 82o and closed nt 1
o'clock at 81J < o.
There were a considerable number of buy
ing orders in corn at the opening , nnd they ,
with the demand from the shorts , soon
caused an ndvanco of lo from Saturday's '
closing prico. Cables on corn were unusually
strong , nnd the corner in Now York was
said to bo a complete success. Thcso were
the bullish features , but so far ns Immediate
local Influences were conrornoil the pressure
on the shorts seemed to be easing up n llttlo
since the receipts were larger than estimated
nnd the proportion o contract grade much
larger. There was considerable realizing by
the longs , but a good demand from the shorts
prevented any considerable decline at any
time. May corn opened nt 55 c , or j&o
higher than Saturday's closing- price , and
directly advanced to 60 0 , and after n re
action to 50o , touched 50 @ 50 ; c , then
slowly worked down with frequent small re
actions to 5.WC , advanced to firstname.lastname@example.org , fell
to fiS c and closed at 1 o'clock nt COc asked.
Juno corn opened at 5-i o bid , sold up to 559B'
@r > 5 } < fc , and closed at I o'clock at CS c.
There was an active speculative trade in
oats , chiefly in the nearer deliveries , which
scored a fair advance. There was no dis
tinctive feature to the market , price fluctua
tions being guided by those of corn. May
oats opened at 82c , which was Uo above
Saturday's close , sold at ! J < o and 82o and
closed at 1 o'clock at 83X@'l'-Xo , Juno oats
opened at 82'jfc , sold at 32 0 nnd 32J/C ,
closing at ai' c. July oats ranged from 82o
to 82c , and August oals from 23J c to 28Uo.
The provision trade failed to sympathise
with grain. The opening was quite strong ,
but the accredited Uoor representative of the
pork syndicate showed an unexpected dis
position to sell and this , in connection with
comparatively free offerings of short ribs by
a couple of the old raiders , developed a
weaker feeling. Lard was alone well sup
ported and closed at I o'clock ' at Saturday's
prices. In pork and. short rbs } tho-move
ment was bcarisulv Inclined. The day's
actual decline in pork was 12 } @ 16c and In
short ribs 2K@5e. Short ribs were the most
active article In a speculative way , though
trading in them as woII as in pork and lard
scarcely exceeded n fair volume.
