f * WASHINGTON , D. C. , July 30. 1
The Woman's National league of this city
/ias / taken up the lljjht against Representative
John V. O'Neill , of St. Louis , on behalf of the
Mrs. Moore , who has made O'Neill so much
trouble by chinning to bo his wife and who
protested against his marrlago to a young
woman in St. Louts last Wednesday , and
have carried the case to the postmaster gen
eral and Cardinal Gibbous. The ofllcors of
the league suy that O'Neill's ' Influence secured
a delay In the protest sent through the malls
to the archbishop and other ofllccrs of the
Catholic church in St. Louis , protesting
against the congressman's marrlago and an
investigation lias been demanded of the post
master general. The appeal taken to Cardinal
Gibbon Is on the ground that sufficient
protest was made to tlio ofllccrs of the church
by telegraph and the cardinal promises to
bring tha case up In the church for trial if
there is no rccourso In the law. The United
States district attorney hero says that there
is no law in the District of Columbia to
punish seduction , bastardy and kindred
crime. O'Neill Is expected hero every day
with his bride and he Is promised a warm re
ception by the Woman's league. Mrs. Moore
Is at the Uolvidero hotel whore she says she
is about to become a mother. She has made
an uflldavlt thut the child Is O'Neill's. Hev.
P. J. Donahue , private secretary to the car-
j dlnal , was hero to-day.
A VIGTOllY KOll IltlllOATION.
Senator Bowcn's amendment to the sundry
civil bill for the appropriation of F-WO.OOO for
preliminary services for the purpose of buildIng -
Ing reservoirs at the head waters of streams
for storing of water and for the Irrigation of
arid regions caused quite a lively debate In
the donate this afternoon. The senators from
the states of Nov.ul i , and Colorado , together
with Senators Mandcrson , Call and Morgan
advocated the amendment , and Messrs.
Plum and Deck opposed it. The amendment
is In line with the bill Introduced early In the
session and favorably reported from Mr.
Paddock's ' committee on the Mississippi river
and its tributaries. Senator Manderson ad
vocated It earnestly and regretted the
nbscnco of his colleague , Senator
Paddock , as that gentleman , ho was
sure , would liuvo seine warm words to
say on behalf of the amendment. Senator
Manderson called attention to the great
benellt which has been derived from irriga
tion in Colorada and Nevada , and stated
that during a visit to Arizona and New Mexico
ice the geologists had pointed out to him the
evidences of irrigating ditches thut must
huvo existed during the Spanish occupation.
lie called attention to the fact that whfitthoy
once called the "great American desert"
embraces In its area what Is now the state of
Nebraska and that during his stay in the
state ho has seen the arid region almost
eliminated from the map through the
. advances in cultivation made possible
by irrigation which has brought about an
increased and more equable distribution of
the rainfall. Experiments of this kind , ho
argued , would prove of enormous benefit to
the whole country and ho intioduccd Into
his remarks a letter from Governor Taylor
calling the attention of the Nebraska delega
tion and throiK'h them of congress to the
necessity of taking some slops towards pre
venting the further depotlon of the water of
the Phitte. Senator Mumlorson thought
thut these reservoirs would nmko a vast
amount of territory now Incapable of cultiva
tion as fort I Id us any In the land. The
amendment was finally adopted.

The Dakota Sensation.
FnnvoNT , Neb. , July 30. [ Special to THE
HUB. ] The plot to the Shaver-Peterson
abduction case , heretofore mentioned , con
tinues to thicken. The writs of habeas
corpus sued out to release Shaver , the
preacher , were returnable at ten o'clock this
morn I m. , but owing to other writs having
been sued out taking the case Into the juris
diction of the district court , thcso were not
heard this morning. The latter were issued
at the Instance of the girl , to
secure her release from the custody of the
ofllccrs who are detaining her at the instance
of her father , H. M. Steele. Peterson , the
husband of the girl , is not hero. Ho Is being
represented by Deputy Sheriff Walker , of
Custor county , Dakota , who bus employed
on attorney. The writs of habeas corpus
will bo heard by Judge Marshall to-morrow
afternoon , when several witnesses will ar
rive from tlcrmosa , Dakota. The whole
question hinges on whether the girl is fifteen
years old or not. If she is , then her father
has a right to her guardianship and Shaver ,
who has a power of uttornoy from the father ,
will bo Instilled In his action. This is on the
ground that the Dakota statutes ilx the ago
of majority at fifteen years.
The career of the Peterson girl and her
husband has been brief but it has been de
cidedly thrilling. Ono week ago yesterday
the girl got permission of her father to visit
a friend near Hcrmosa. When she arrived
at her friend's house she found preparations
being made for her ( the friend's ) marriage.
She accordingly sent word to Peterson , her
lover , to Join her there , whereupon the four
drove to Koekville , where they were united
as two lawfully wedded pair by Ju ° tico Me-
Nown. When the father of the girl dis
covered this secret marriage ho was exceed
ing wroth. Ho Had Peterson arrested and
tried twice on trumped-up charges , both
trials resulting in his acquittal. It was while
ho was under arrest the last time that Shaver
began to appear in the case. Steele got him
to go to the girl and pretend friendship for
her , which he did , making her believe that
ho would take her to her husband. Hut in
stead of doing tills ho spirited her away and
got her us far as Fremont before they were
stopped. The community from which they
came is evidently taking n deep interest in
the case. Sheriff Porter , of Cuiter county ,
yesterday telegraphed to his deputyWalker ,
who is hero representing Peterson , ns fol
lows : "Tho people are witn you and Petersen -
son and will furnish money. Return Shaver
at all hazards. " It begins to look as If nil

The Board Was Too Eager.
HASTINGS , Neb. , July 80. [ Special to Tun
Bus. ] The recent action of the executive
coiumittcosof the Hastings board of trudo in
addressing to the stuto board of arbitration a
protest against the reduction of the local
tariff for railroads is not expressive of the
feeling that prevails amongtho business men
of this city. On the contrary , there is quite
n strong sentiment opposed to the position
taken by the committee , and not a little in
dignation is manifested over the matter. The
business men say that the board of trade
comuilttoo has placed the city in a false posi
tion on the railroad question , although it Is
not probable that anyone will venttiro to
openly antagonize railroad influences hero.

V. White , or "Deacon" White , ns ho is com

The Indiana Republicans.
CIIICAOO , July 30. [ Special Telegram to
Tni : BKE.I A 'conference of the chairmen ot
the republican state committees of Indiana ,
Wisconsin , Michigan and Illinois , was held
this , afternoon. Chairman J. W. Huston , of
Indiana , said , in regard to the situation in
his state. "It is very hopeful. "
"Is there trouble in the republican party in
Indiana , growing out of the fact of ex-Gover
nor Porter taking the race for govornorl"
"I should suy nono. While Governor Porter
ter was evidently the choice of a majority of
Indiana republicans , still I believe that other
nominations might bo made that would cull
forth in supiwrt of the ticket the greatest
possible clTort and enthusiasm. Tlio repub
licans of Indiana huvo always been
free in the expression of their
individual preferences before the nom
inations , but after n nomination has been
made they always glvo u united and de
termined support to the ticket. Being con
nected with the party organization , 1 have
felt it rather my duty to look after the
organization ot the party than attempting to
ixert any Influence in the selection of the
turty's candidates. It shall bo my duty and
nd pleasure in my official connection with
, ho party organization to give my best ener-
; ies to the election of the ticket , let It consist
f whomsoever It may. "
"Whom do you expect will head the
ickct ! "
"There huvo been n number of gentlemen ,
'or many years leaders of our party in the
jtutc , mentioned in connection with the
nomination for governor , among whom I
.vould . mention the Hon. Will Cutnback , of
3rconsburg ; Governor Uoboitson , of Fort
kVuyno ; Major Steele , of Marion , and the
ilon. John'M. Butler , of Indianapolis , any of
, vhom would make acceptable candidates to
.ho party generally. "
"What Is your opinion of the prohibltlon-
sts of Indiana at the November election ! "
I feel quite conlldent thut wo can curry
, ho state. "
"Upon what do you base your opinion I"
"First , because the party generally be-
.iovcs In the ! necessity of thorough party or
ganization , and bccauso such organization is
low being effected In every county in the
ituto. Secondly , because the republicans of
mlluna were never more enthusiastic or elo-
.ermined to succeed than at present. Wo
carried the state in l&SO. electing our entire
stuto ticket , as the result of party organbu-
' .ion , and our organization at this time , in my
udgmcut. is far in advance of what it was at
i llko period in ISbO. While I say that re-
mblicuns generally are sanguine of success ,
it the sumo time their expectations are pro-
illcutod upon the nssuranco of the most
thorough party organization and united effort
upon the part of all In fact , I have fre
quently heard republican" say that we should
muko this light in Indiana as thoroughly and
vigorously us wo would had 20,000 majority
to overcome. "
"How about tins mooteel defection of the
abor vote as against Mr. Harrison ? "
"I think it is greatly exaggerated. The
aboring classes in Indiana will not bo con
rolled by inlsstatonicnta or prejudices , but
will thoroughly undcrstund Senator Harri
son's attitude toward the laboring classes.
They will accord him credit for all ho has
done in their behalf. While it bus been
sought diligently to prejudice the laboring
men against him , I think it will prove of
avail. General Harrison's position on all
questions affecting the wage workers of this
country has always been that of a true
friend , and General Harrison has no moro
earnest or enthusiastic supporters in the
state than such as belong to the laboring
classes. Republican clubs , composed wholly
of railroad men , are being organized in the
railroad centers throughout the state , and
they are most enthusiastic in General Harri
son's support. "
"How about this 'dollar a day for working-
men' and Mr. Harrison's Chinese question i"
"Mcro bugaboos , such as should bo used
only to scare children. "

HAD IjKAIlNHD RliVHKAIi THING S.
Commissioner Catnpholt Proven Him
self to He Very Well Informed.
DM MOINES , In. , July .m Commissioner
Campbell was again on the stand to-day. Ho
thought that nil roads having over $4,000 n
inllo gross earnings should huvo the sumo
schedule. The commissioner accepted the
basis for fixing the rates made UBO of by rail
road men , taking allowance , however , for
earnings , expenses , curvatures , etc. , etc. ,
Hems apparently not considered by railroad
rate makers. Ho believed that the people of
Iowa would bo losers by $ , ' 0HK , ( ) a\1uy if the
present Injunction were to bo nnulo perpetual
and the May 10th tariff continued. The wit
ness produced some correspondence showing
nu Increase oi from 20 to over fit ) per cent
in rates under the May 10th tariff , and espec
ially heavy discriminations against Iowa and
in favor of Minneapolis on flour , and Chicago
on lumber. Ho thought that If railroads
could voluntarily accept extremely low rates
on through business they could st-nd u it-J
dnctlon on their high rates In Iowa.
The counsel asked a series of questions de
signed to find out what thu witness hud
Icnrncel since ho bccune a commissioner.
Mr. Campbell told several things ho hud
found out. Ono was that the commercial in
terest of the state was suffering by reason of
discrimination on the part of rnllrouds. The
proprietor of un oil mill utBoone , for Instance ,
hud been so discriminated against that ho has
compelled to discontinue business , and upon
his representing to the Northwestern com
pany that if ho could not get relief ho could
not live , the company's officer told him , "Ho
dlel not ntivo to live , " and he was compelled
to tear down his mill and move to Missouri.
A Jobber of Dubuque had been offered by n
railroad company free transportation of his
goods if ho would leave that city und take
his business to Pluttsiuouth , Neb. Ho hud
also learned that the trunk lines
hud conducted their business to the
prejudice and Injury of the weaker
roads about which they are so anxious now.
Ho hud found that the corporations had ,
within the last year , given special rates to
individuals and localities In this state to the
prejudice of other Individuals and localities.
Counsel wanted to know whether , in the
opinion of the witness , the railroad tariff of
May 10 was not ono that simply abolished
such spcciul rates.
Witness answered that It WHS not neces
sary that the companies , in abolishing these
special rates , should hold on to the Highest
rates In all cases , which ho thought they did
us a general thing. Ho believed In raising
lower rates and reeluclng high ones \\hcn

ship of the board. The first proposition was

ably exercised over the demand of the rail
roads in regard to the grain shipments.
It is complained that grain pur
chased by the loe'al dealers which
must bo bhipped through St. Joe cannot bo
inspected by them at this point unless the
local freight r.ito is paid to St. Joseph. A
demand was made that the shippers r.honld
bo allowed a through rate with the privilege

WASHINGTON , July 30. The house committee
too on manufactures to-day submitted tha
following report concerning the Investigation
of trusts , which was ordered printed :
The committee on manufactures respectfully -
fully report thut , noting on the authority
and resolution of this house passed Jiiuuury

they huvo been unalilo to complete such in

pert the following resolution with the rceom-
inundation that It pass.
Your commlttco further report that the
names of the various trusts aud cuinblna-
tlotiB havu been furnished to yourcotnmlttca ;
that the number of such combinations m
large , and that your committee , In culling
witnesses and taking testimony , proceeded
upon the following plan of Investigation 1. o. ,
to Imiulro :
1. With relation to trusts or combinations
In lines of business which are connected wither
or use articles In which there exists u com -f
petition In our market between the domestic
product and the foreign | > roduct , Imported ,
and dutiable under our tariff laws.
2. With relation to such combinations deal-
nt : In articles which are not Imported Into
his country or are not subject to Import
3. With relation to such combinations

lon under the internal revenue lawn of the
Your commlttco has particularly directed
ts inquiry Into the methods and extent ot
ho business douo or controlled by the sugar
rust and the Standard oil trust , and ro
pcctfully submit herewith testimony taken ,
before It In relation to these two trusts. Doth
f them are organized upon substantially
ho sBino plan. From the testi
mony it appears that there exists
a certain number of corimrntions ,
organized under the laws of the difforbnt
states , and subject to their control ; thatthoso
'orporntlons ' liuvo Issued their stock to vari
ous individuals , and that these- individual
itockholdcra have surrendered their stock to
rusteos named in the agreement creating1
heso trusts , and accepting In lieu thereof
icrtillcules Issued by the trustees named
heroin. The agreements provide
hat the various corporations whoso
stock Is surrendered to the trustees
shall prcservn their identity and carry
on their business. In the sugar trust the
iigrccmcnt provision Is that the several cor
porations shnll maintain their separate or-
nl/iitions and each shall carry on and con-
luct its own business. In the Standard oil
trust the ugi cement Is provided thut all prop
erty , real and personal , assets and business ,
shall bo transferred to and vested In sola
several companies. The duties ot
the trustees nro restricted to the receipts'
of the dividends declared by the various
coiporations and the distribution of the ag
gregate of them to the holders of trust cer
tificates pro ratu , and to holding and voting
upon the stock of tlio corporation. The trus-
tecs in both cases , upon the stand as wit
nesses , speclllcally denied that the trustees ,
as such , ever do any other business than toi
receive and distribute thcso dividends and
exercise tlio only other function given td
them by the trust agreements that is , to
hold the Mock of the various cor | > orutiona
niul exercise the right of stockholders in
such corporation. The euro with which thai1
trustees avoid making any agreement ro- >
luting to the commodities appears from the
testimony us to the an angemont with the oil
producers' association in the fall of Ib87.
The olllcorsi of the producois1 association tes
tified that the agreement was then made
with the Standard Oil tiust by which
-.COO.OOO barrels of oil belonging to the
Standard Oil trust was to bo sut apart foe
the benefit of the association upjn Its agree
ment to curtail the pi eduction of crude oil at
least 17,000 bai rcls per diem. The
witnesses undoubtedly undeistood that the
arrangements were with the trustees of the
Standard Oil trust , but a written agreement }
produced , and now in evidence , shows that it
was made with andisslirned by the Standard
Oil company , of Now York , ono of the com
panies whoso stock is held by the trustees ,
and that the Standard Oil trust , or the trus
tees ' thereof as such , aio not parties
to it , nor Is cither of them re
sponsible for the carrying out of the agree
ment. This form of combination was obviously
desired for the purpose of iclicvlng the trusts
and trustees f rum the charge of any breach
of conspiracy laws of the various states , or
of being a combination to regulate or control
the price or production of any commodity.
Ilcnco they assert that the corporations
thmnsolve.i , which control and regulate the
price of commodities and the extent of pro
duction , and having tangible property , re
main with their organ i/.ition Intact and dis
tinctand not in combination with each other ;
that the stockholders who owned ouly
the stock and by well-settled
legal rules had no legal title in the piopcrty
of the corpoi n'.ions , entered into agreements
and sold their stock in the corporations and
accepted In payment trust certificates , and
that the trustees receive and hold only tha
stock of the corporation ? ! and have no legal
right to any of the property of the eoipora-
tion , and neither buy nor sell anything or
comblno with any ono to fix prices or regu
late tin ) production of any commodity.
The rerort goes on to say that it is plain ,
that the combinations , the test In ony conccrn-
iiiirhich is herewith submitted , have been ,
intentionally formed so as to avoid , if possi
ble , the chargi ) that the trust , as ouch , or the
trustees in that capacity , either fixed the
price or icfjnlated the production of an avtl
wo of merchandise or commerce.
