were made for Ills nbtoncc , liut lute in the
afternoon n distinguished Indiana democrat
and intimate friend of the senior stated Unit
the absence was duo to disability ; that the
senator was suffering from the Intoxication
of yesterday's proceedings In the senate , and
that there was no prospect of his reappear
ing In the scnutb for a day or two. Uni
versal regret was expressed during the day
over the conduct of Senator Voorhccs. No
ono of his colleagues attempted to excuse his
disgraceful words , and It was the unanimous
expression that when ho becomes himself
ngain he will apologize , but oven this will not
redeem him. If ho wcro to apologize In a
public manner nnd abjectly to the senate and
nil the people who wcro In the galleries at the
tlmo of his utterances , ho would yet

ruined. Although many who hoard the buttle

During the course of an elibornfc speech
delivered by Senator Paddock this afternoon
upon the pleuro-pncumnnia bill , l.n took oc
cnsion to denounce the misstatemcnts which
liad been miulo as to the incrcnso in the num
ber and aggregate of farm inoi tgngcs , nnd
protested aguinut the charge that what in
crease there hnd been wns the result of un
successful agriculture. 'Tens of thousands
of farmers , " mild the senator , "who formerly
depended upon wheat and corn raising have
now taken to stock raising and have been
obliged to borrow money to purchase such
Block. A largo portion of the money bor
rowed had also gone into improvements ,
which represent in their value much more
than the borrowed money. The loans had
for the most part been made for the diversifi
cation of .111 industry which has added enor
mously to the wealth of the country. The
western farmers , in spite of the charges
made , have been growing yearly more pros
perous. " The senator Insisted that these at
tacks made upon western securities were the
result of attempts to secure partisan advantage -
vantage nnd to turn back the tide of eastern
capital which hail been diverted from the
distrust of Wall street.
The larger portion of Senator Paddock's '
speech , which occupied nearly an hour in its
delivery , was devoted to an argument of the
constitutional right of congress to legislate
upon quarantine- regulations to protect out
cattle tlccks and droves from contagious
and epidemic diseases. During the
course of his speech Mr. Paddock quoted
extensively from the frumors of the consti
tution and decisions from the supreme court
from the earliest time , which gave their in
terpretation of what constituted commerce
between the states , and based his argument
far the constitutionality of the law upon the
power which had been granted to congress
lor this purpose. The speech was filled with

The western Union did not want to sell , hut
Its purchase was the only proper basis on
which the government could go Into the tele

The senate then resumed consideration of
the railroad land grant forfeiture bill.
Mr. Dnwes offered an amendment which
precipitated a lengthy discussion. It wns
withdrawn and an amendment substituted by
Mr. Hour , which provides thut the net shall
not bo construed to projudlco the right of the
Portage Lake canal company or nny person
claiming under It to apply hereafter to the
courts or to congress for nny legal or co.ult-
able relief to which they mny now be entitled.
The bill nnd amendment went over till to

linal vote on t'.io bill would bo had then.
The similar then resumed consideration of
the bill for the establishment of n bureau of
animal Industry. Mr. Paddock made a

constitutional and economic grounds. The
bill was then temporarily laid aside.
The scntito then proceeded to the passage

The senate then adjourned.
WASIIINOTON , May 2. Upon assembling
to-day the house went into committee of the
whole , with Mr. Springer , of Illinois , in the
chair , on the tariff bill.
Mr. Wilson , of Minnesota , denounced the
tariff system. Ho was opposed to the present
tariff because while it enriched the few it
prevented the expansion of our industries ,
and because it was especially unjust to agri
cultural interests. The important question
presented now was , whether the wealthy
classes should bo allowed tolevy tribute upon
the industrial classes. That' was the contest
now before the coiintry , nnd sooner or later
the people would succeed.
Mr. McComas , of Maryland , said Clove-
laud's message and this foundling called the
Mills bill had a common purposo. Both used
the surplus as a fulcrum wherewith to apply
tlio free trade lever to dislodge the protective
system. Every free-trader applauded both ;
every protectionist denounced them both.
Mr. Lanhum of Texas , said in view of the
conditions which surrounded congress nnd in
view of the intrepid stand taken by the
president ho could not see how nny democrat
could utford to antagonize the general propo
sition for reducing taxation.
Mr. Allen ot Massachusetts , spoke nt
length in favor of tlio protective policy.
Mr. Caruth of Kentucky , characterized the
protective tariff as n most insiduous enemy.
It walked in silcncenndundcrcovnr.nnd while
it pretended to bo giving the country protec
tion it was in reality stealing its substance
nnd destroying its lire. In conclusion ho re
plied to Kelly's criticisms upon Kentucky ,
nnd paid an eloquent tribute to that state.
The committee then rose nnd the house took
n recess until 8 o'clock , the evening session

already poisoned 3,800 Indians , nnd was med
itating tlio murder of 5,000 moro. The cor
respondent stated that ho merely gave the
news as rumor from San Paulo , and that
there was no means of verifying it. Accord
ing to a Sun Paulo weekly paper , which has
Just been received here , the story was moro
than mere rumor. The paper asserts that
Bucno has under his command about sev
enty men who huvo been employed in perse
cuting nnd exterminating Indians. It claims
they poisoned wells from which nn Indian
village drew supplies of water by putting in
large quantities of strychnine. After per
forming this treacherous deed , they with
drew , nnd n week afterwards 3,000 of the
Indians were dead. The paper gravely ns-

SrniNnriEU ) , 111. , May 2. The republican
state convention was called to order nt noon
to-day. Leading republicans wcro present
from all over the state. Lewis E. Payson
was chosen temporary chairman. Pnyson
wns greeted with npidauao upon assuming
the chair. His rctnnrks occupied forty min
utes , nnd wcro substantially ns follows :
"I sco exhibited real and enthusiasm , which
show that the poQplo are fully allvo to the
Importance of the occasion ; that the party is
Inspired with its old tlmo vigor , and its future
action will bo In harmony with Its past zeal-
ousncss. " Ho alluded touchlngly to the
lenders of the party who had died since the
last national election. In spcnkmg of Logan
ho said : "Ho , with'others less notable but
no less earnest nnd devoted , have Inid down
their nrmor nnd their burden , but their work
for the country through the republican party
will bo taken up by hands Inspired by hearts
equally patriotic , that will prove , lot us trust ,
equally effective. "
The speaker touched upon the wealth nnd
prosperity of the state. Ho then went on to
say : "All that wo sect in Illinois makes the
outlook easy because it all has grown up
under republican rule nnd republican princi
ples. So wo happily look back over thirty
years of republican administration nnd
proudly say ns against none of these republi
can officials has u dollar been lost or suspicion
cast on n trusted officer. 1 congratulate you
thut for the llrst time since 1S01 in the prcsi-
dentlnl your wo face an enemy who Is in pos
session of the government. Wo meet on an
oi > cn field and the democratic party must
stand up for inspection. Wo nil remember
how they succeeded four years ago , anneal
ing to the fears of too credulous people by
emphatic und repeated assertions of cor
ruption in office. "
At the conclusion of Payson's speech , nnd
after the appointment of different com
mittees , a recess wns taken until : t o'clock.
At the afternoon session the following res
olutions were passed unanimously :
Kesolvcd , That tbo republican party of
Illinois feels a Just and honorable pride in
the public career and services of Shelby M.
Cullom ; that it approves his coui83 ns u sen
ator ot n republican state , nnd that it plucsa
fu 1 conJldcnco in his wisdom , patriotism und
Wherens , The republicans of Illinois re
gard the record of 'Wnlter Q. Grcsham as a
soldier , ns n statesman nnd Jurist with sat
isfaction , knowing shim to be a pure man
and u faithful servant ; believing thut in the
event of his nomination for president by the
republican party the campaign must be
contested solely on the principles of
the great party of which Judge
Greslmm is a true , representativennd
that ho certainly'can..lead to victory that
party which for a quarter of a century gov
erned the nation with unequalled couragp ,
wisdom , nd61lty qnd purity. Therefore bo It
Kesolvcd , T.hut we declare our preference
for Judge Grcshaiu.osir.ca'ldlVito for presi
dent nud recommendl-our "delegates to the
republican national convention to b'ivo him
their hearty und faltliful support.
Senator Culkim would have been
endorsed had [ ho declared himself
n candidate , but his friends stated they
did not intend to present his name to the na
tional convention as a presidential Candidate ,
and so all voted for Greslmm.
The following w.ere elected to the national
convention : Dclegatcs-at-largc , Colonel Ii.
G. Davis , Horace S. Cinrke , Hon. C. B. Far-
well and W.F. Hudley ; alternates , J. II.
Lott , Paytou Roberts , H. D. Judson and L.
Up to 10 o'clock the following nominations
had been made : Governor , Joseph A. Fifer ;
lieutenant-governor. L. B. Ray ; secretary of
state , I. N. Pearson , auditor , C. W. Pnvey ;
treasurer , Charles Bccher ; attorney , Gcorgo
At 11 p. in. the committee on platform had
agreed upon the following , which will soon
be reported to the convention und will most
likely be adopted with n few amendments :
The republican party of tlio state of Illi
nois deems it unnecessary on the eve of the
national convention to make an extended
declaration of principles moro than to re
affirm those laid down in the national plat
form of 1SS4 and to express the conviction
that public Interest would bo greatly promoted
meted by a change of administration.
The democratic. ' party has become
merely an organization for official spoils.
It has unblushingly violated all
its reformatory promises. It is not entitled
to the conlldenco of the people. The presi
dent solemnly pledges himself to carry out
civil service reform , but with the full ap
proval of his partisan supporters , ho has con
verted this roforni into n shallow pretense.
Ho committed himself to the one-term prin
ciple in his letter of acceptance , but is now
actually using federal patronage to secure a
re-election. His partisan confederates pro
claim devotion to equal suffrage rights while
they trample these rights under foot In the
south. The democratic party professes at
tachment to stujo sovereignty nud home
rule , but ruthlessly denies both to
the Aracricnn citizens of Dakota , fearing that
the votes of that ipcoplo may bo cast for the
republican candidates nt the coming - presidential
dential election , It prqfesscs love for the
union soldiers nnd sailors , but its continued
policy has been to reftiso relief to the suffer
ing defenders of the nation and their de
pendants. It rules the national house ol
representatives , which nlono can originate
changes of tax nnd revenue bills , but It has
done nothing in its past six years in control
of that body to reduce the surplus accu-
initiation of money iij the treasury ,
or to relieve the people of uuneccs
sary taxation. Ita proposed tnrifl
legislation is a glaring subterfuge , and tin
attempt to destroy the American policy ol

THE GREAT STRIKE IS OFF ,

AT BEST TERMS OBTAINABLE.
Although n Formal Order Una Not

Strikers Ileatcu ,
The Men , Can Oo Hack to Worlr.
Cnit'Ano , Mny S. [ Special Telegram to
the Br.i : . ] Although denied by the minor
officials remaining nt the strikers' hendquar1-
tcrs , it Is assorted on excellent authority
that the great "Q. " strike bus been declared
off and the Brotherhood of Locomotive En
chicors , supposed to bo the only Invincible
trade union in the United States , has suffered
its llrst defeat since It capitulated to the
Boston & Maine railroad In 1STT. At n meetIng -
Ing hold ycsteritny between Messrs. llogo ,
Sargent nnd Arthur at the Grand Paclllcr ,
the situation was thoroughly discussed , and
it wns decided to dcclnrc the strike off. Yes
terday afternoon the members of the brother
hood nnd the Switchmen's union were notU
lied seml-ofllclully that the strike was over
and they wore told to muko the best terms
they could with the company. After the
meeting Sargent nnd Arthur returned to
their homes , nnd Mr. llogo scut nut n cnll to
the chairman of tno grievance committees to
meet him as noon ns possible nt the Graml
Pacific. It will take n few duys before all
can bo present , nnd when they meet thd
strike will bo declnrcd off formally.
The decision of the strikers' leaders to
abandon the fight against the railroad com
pany was brought about mainly by the re
ports of the in en who wcro sent out from the
strikers' headquarters nbout two weeks ago
of " ' " business
to Inspect the condition tho"Q's"
nnd ability to tuko cure of its t runic , both
freight nnd passenger. The reports recoivQd
from their men were very discouraging to
the strikers. From every point word
camotlmt there was no Inconvenicnco re
sulting to the road from the withdrawal ot
the .union engineers and switchmen. At
Homo places it wan stated that the road had
suffered n small loss of business , but that
even this injury was being rapidly repaired.
The hardest blows the brotherhood knew/
how to deal had been dealt , nnd victory
seemed immeasurably farther off than whoa
the men first left their engines. All this wns
dispiriting. Then , too , many of the men who
were out on strike were becoming restless
nnd impatient under their enforced idleness ,
nnd , nlthough they were to a man loyal to
the order , they chafed under its commands ,
The cxnenso of supporting the strikers was
becoming a burden to the brotherhood and ,
everything considered , it seemed moro to the
possible and probable advantage of the iricii
to call the strike off.
Mr. Hogc , chairman of the grievance com
mittee of the brotherhood , who has had
practical charge of the strike since the second.
week of its existence , was seen Just after ho
had partaken of a 0 o'clock breakfast at , tha
Grand Pacific this morning. When asked it
the strike had been declared off , ho paused
quite a while and then said : "The strike h'aa
not been declared off. formally. The irien ,
however , have been allowed to secure their
old places with the company , at the best
terms they can get whenever they can do sol
and those who cannot get worlt here. wUl go
somewhere else. A meeting pf the grieyanc J
committee has been called , and > , \yhat the :
may decide to do I cannot sny. " (
' Is It probable that they will order tin
strike off ! "
"I could not talk about that now. Thc.\i
will bo nblo to reach hero in a few days , and
their decision will bo mude public. "
"Huve any of the brotherhood men applied
for work on the 'Q i'
"Not that I know of. "
"Will the members of the brotherhood bo
given permits to work for the 'Qi' " ,
"No ; no permits will bo given. While the
strike is on they cannot work for the 'Q.j ,
and should the strike be declared off , they
may work for the road without permits , bOr
cause the withdrawal of the order to strike )
carries with it permission to go to work lit
any way they can. "
"Sargent and Arthur have gone home ? "
"Yes ; they have gone , and will not be ,
back hero until they are wanted to appeaC
before the intor-stuto commerce commission. ' }
"Do you yet expect to muko out a case
against the " ( J" before the commission ! "
"I do not know Just what will be dono. Jj
cannot talk over this question nt this time.'J
"Tho intention to declare the strike off has
been practically arrived at for Rome duysj
said a man who has been in Mr. Ilogo's offloci
nearly every day since the Inception of this
struggle. "Tho reasons for the hreak-dowK-
uro several. In the first p'.uce , it looked na
tiiotigh tlio company wus getting along with
out the brotherhood and switchmen lately ,
nnd every any ha * been adding to the 'Q's\
ability to succeed and lespening the chance
of the men to get buck. The men themselves
some of tnom , at least were beginning to
feel sore , the brotherhood was under hcavx
expense , and the light seemed lost , and it
wns deemed better to quit now , when thcrd
would bo a good show for ninny of the inert
to get buck to work , than to wult till thd
company would bo In perfectly good trim. I
do not suppos3 all the old men will ever get
back , and but few of them will get tlieic
pimines buck ut once , but the maorlty ; of
them will eventually get their old Jobs. You
nee , while the road has nominally a full
force there are many of the men
now running engines who would not bo kcpff
u day moro than possible for the company id
fill their places with men ns well skilled na
the old employes. Every day In the servlcd
of tlio roud increases the cfllclcncy of those )
men , nnd It hc'c.imo necessary to knock them
out wliilo it was possiblo. Wo expect no )
favor from the roud , but their own self in
terest will lead them to take buck most o
the brotherhood men. You \Mll sco that !
giuduully the new men will bo dropped and
the old , trained , reliable engineers tuken on.1'
" \Vliat will become of the men who cannot
work hero ) "
"Oh , they will distribute themsdlvcs around
the country nnd find work. "
Paul Mortlon was told uy u reporter that
the strike on his rend had been declared off ,
but It didn't surprise him ut all. "Wn have
lost sight of the htrlko completely , " said he.
"Wo haven't known fortwo weeks thutthcro
was a strike , I am glad , however , that tha
men have conic to their senses , They should
have acted us wisely six weeks ago. I do not
think we. will huvo use for many of the old
men. Wo have u full force now , and are ro
