DAVENTOUT , la. , Sept. 18. [ Special Tele-
; rain to THE BEE. ] The jobbers of this city
are on the warpath In dead earnest. The
city council chamber Is the place where the
case Is being tried that of the forty-five jol > -
jcrs against tno Chicago , Hock Island & Pa
cific , the Burlington , Cedar Knplds& North

railroads for extortionate rates and unjust
discrimination , mostly under the May 10th

Lifted to the destruction of their business
under thn May luth tariff ; that the Increase
of rates was about ! 10 per cent ; that the rates
from Pcoria and Chicago Into Iowa
were ns low , and even lower , than
from Davenport to the same Iowa
loints , not half the distance. Several of
the jobbers tostllled to hauling goods to
Uock Island to get a living rate into Iowa.
Mr. Preston , of Sickles & Preston , Bald
that their business foil off 30 per cent in the
four months after the May 10th tariff went
Into effect , and to compete with Chicago
they had to soil goods > it nn actual loss. A
B. Bird , general passenger agent for the
Milwaukee road , was on the stand for the
detouso to-day , the plaintiffs having con
cluded their side. The Hno of defense was
mainly Justification of the Mav 10th tariff ,
Mr. Bird even claiming that it was too low.
A comparison of the Iowa commissioners'
rates with the Inter-stnto rates was a
Lhorout.'h vindication of the commis
sioners' rates , they being generally
iilgher than the inter-state rates , though
i great reduction on Iowa rates
LJinl said that the former nystom of giving
rebates had bi-on swept away by the inter
state law , and that the Iowa law was in sev
eral respects similar. Ho conceded that the
Nebraska through rates across Iowa were
materially lower t ban the Iowa local rates
under the May 10th tariff. The Muy 10th
tariff , ho said , was a largo advance on the
tariff in effect prior to that dato. The cross-
examination by Mr. Lane developed that the
loss of revenue to the Chluago , Milwaukee &
3t. Paul the last year was largely caused by
Lho rate war of last winter. Thus far the

ain and the dominion of Canada , and to re
port at next session such measures ns are ex
pedient to promote friendly commercial and
political Intercourse between these countries
nnd the United States , was taken up , and
Mr. Sherman proceeded to ndaress the sen-
itu on it. Ho made un allusion to the presi
dent's retaliation message and the Justifica
tion of the rejection of the fish-
cries treaty. Ho believed that the
evil could have been corrected if
.ho president had , by proclamation , with-
neld the privileges from Canadian fishing
vessels that hart been denied to American
ilshermcn. But the president , instead of ex
ercising the powers which ho had , had asked
congress , in his retaliation message , for
power to suspend commerce which had
amounted for the last six years to $270,000-
000. The president's proposition was , in other
words , to suspend nnd embarrass the
commerce of exports and imports
amounting to nearly $100,000,01)0 , ) a
veiir. Such a proposition , made without
warning in the midst of a popular election ,
nid been the president1 ! * response to the

priation bill. When last before the house

ent plan of construction as inadequate. Mr.
Forney proceeded to reply to this attack and
to defend the plan as proposed in the confer
Mr. Cannon of Illinois made a speech on
the general subject of appropriations , and
said that the democratic administration had
expended in four years $ Ofi,000OJO more than
liad been expended during the last four years
of the republican administration. Ho
charged the democrats with increasing the
number of public otllcials and with increas
ing salaries. The fiscal policy of administra
tion was an attempt by the president to weld
the solid south with Wall street , and on the
structure thus erected ho hoped to climb a
second time into the presidential clialr.
Mr. Burns of Missouri declared that
much of the increased appropriations was
duo to the republican senate , or amendments
creating them offered by the gentleman from
Illinois and advocated by his party friends.

cated increased appropriation when ho
thought the Increase was right and proper.

tory in the air In November.
Mr. Henderson , of lown , challenged the
statement , and in answer to his question as
to what gains the democrats expected , Mr.
Burns replied that Iowa might fall into Hn6.
Mr. Henderson wantedjto know whether the
gentleman found reason for his belief in the
result in Maine , Oregon and Vermont.
Mr. Burns replied that the democrats had
reduced the republican majority in Maine by
