Congress will cither adjourn sine die or
take n recess till about the middle of No
vember within ten days. At nn informal
conference of the republican senators this
morning it was discovered that theiowero
Nly eighteen or twenty republican nnd llf-
| n or sixteen democratic senators in the
/.ty nnd many ot these are anxious to get
Into their states during tlto week and they do
not Intend to return before the election.
Senator Harris , of Tennessee , who is the
leader on the other side of the senate in the
tariff debate , is anxious to go homo at once ,
while other democrats > ay they cannot re
main longer and it seems to bo.lho almost
unanimous desire of both dcmocratio and
republican senators to get away and paitiei-
pate in the campaign. Senator Allison said
to Tin : Br.i : correspondent this afternoon
that if tlio democrats in the house insist
upon kceplngo up the . force of the
session of the lower branch of
congress that ho would some time
next week suggest that either a recess or
adjournment bo taken nnd ho expressed the
belief that It would bo concurred in. He said
further Unit ho did not euro to stay hero and
continue a session with only a baker's do/en
of men about him. Hi bides this ho stated
that the general debate on the tariff bill will
be concluded within a week nnd the senate
will then bo icady to go into committee of
the whole for the consideration of the tariff
bill by sections , when amendments -will bo
offered and that no progress whatever could
bo made without n quorum. A quorum can
not bo hail before the election and therefore
it i.s economy and good sense to cither adjourn
or take a recess till the election is over.

port printed at the public expense fordistri

lias been issued six weeks ahead of the usual
time for its appearance , and it has been "ed

view to wielding influence in the campaign ,
The idea is that it , will bo circulated too late
for rclutatinn nud it will have an influence
among soldiers and their friends. It is as
ccrtained that the expense for the printing
of this largo edition was taken out of the
contingent fund for excuses in the interior
department. It will bu proper for this sub
ject to be investigated , since no copies , not
even the regular edition of 2,000 or H.OOC

Senator Mandersoii.this afternoon called uj
In the senate the bill which passed the house
yesterday making Lincoln n port of deliv
ery for imported goods , ami it was promptly
iinsscd. Senator Manderson introduced a
bill of this character very early in the pres
ent session and the senate committee on com
merce called upon the treasury department
for information on the subject. The treasury
ofllcials replied that there was no necessity
for making Lincoln a port of delivery , but
Senator Manderton has had the bill pushed
throUL-h the senate nnd it will go to the pres
ident for his approval or disapproval.
A UNION OF Ill.l'I ! AND OltAV.
A plan has been devised by Major William
Howard Mills , of this city , during the late
Avar and for three years afterward an oftlccr
of the United States army , for the more per
fect fraterni/ation of the survivors of the
two armies engaged "Tho Blue und the
Gray. " Hero is his plan :
"In view of the great truths that God had
cemented the union of the states In the blood
of more than u hundred battles , made
of enemies in war , friends in peace ,
und that all of the participants in
the late civil war in the United States will
soon bo mustered on the far shores of the
inllnltc , we , survivors , hereby agree to con
stitute ourselves a corporate body , by the
name nnd title of 'The Military Order of
United Sons of America , " with power to have
nnd use a common seal , receive , hold and
convey real and personal estate necessary for
the purpose of the order ; to extend the or
ganization into all of the United States and
territories , ami to bo governed by such con
stitution , rules and by-laws as may bo here
"Thoobjccts of the ordershnll heto perfect
the fraternization of Appomattox , perpetuate
the memories of the heroic dead , strengthen
tlio renewed bonds of union between the
states , to educate our children so as to for
ever insure the nation from the perils of
another civil war , from any cause , and pro
poses loyal , charitable , fraternal and histori

memorial building at the capital ot the na
tion , that snail bo n suitable mon

nnd fidelity of the American
soldier nnd sailor , from the days of Gcorgo
Washington , to the establishment of u war
museum nnd uu American soldiers' and sail

"Each of the three classes shall have a life
membership. One-half of all admission fees
nnd llxcd dues from members shall po to a
building fund , to bo used tlrst , nnd only , for
the erection of the memorial building until it
shall bu completed , then for the creation of
the war museum and library. "
It Is understood that no cast Iron formula
lias been determined upon for the organiza
tion , but the views expressed have been
given somewhat of the nature of a preamble
to a constitution , simply us n suggestion.
Upon being asked where the money is to
come from for the successful execution of so
stupendous n scheme , Major Mills stated :
"Tho anticipation is that congress will be
nskcd for a perpetual charter and permission
to erect the memorial building upon ono of
the government reservations of Washington ;
nothing more. The projiosltloii lias already
met unexpected favor from the soldiers and
sailors ot the late union and confederate
armies , including some of the most distln
gulshed of generals. It is received with
great favor by citizens , rich und poor
Some of the prominent ladies of Washing
ton have expressed a desire to organize ;
"Woiimns' Aid association. " It has beci
suggested that the owners of every granite
quarry in the land will bo ambitious
to contribute of their stone for tin
walls , while the owners of ovorj
mine will dcslro to furnish a block of ore foi
the inside walls. No style of architecture hai
been discussed , though the ancient Grcciai
Las been mentioned. It is anticipated thai
every state in the union will , in bctralf o
the men it sent to the armies , contribute lib
erally. Nearly every soldier and sailor wil
have a valuable contribution to send to tit
war museum , and it is anticipated that amir
rangomeut will bo inado by which a copy o
every book published in iho United State
Will go to the library , by contribution o
otherwise. A contribution , the tlrsi , bos ul

WASHINGTON , Oct. 9. The space in the
supreme court was crowded to the fullest
capacity to-day at 12 o'clock , when the court
was called to order , in anticipation of Judge
Thurinan making the opening argument for
the government in the Hell telephone case.
After a few motions in cases of no general
Interest bad been entered , Chief Justice Ful
ler called case No. 8lil. the United States
against the American Boll Telephone Com
pany. Judge Thurmun , after n consultation
with his associates , arose , and drawing from
his pocket the familiar old bandana and his
snuff box , placed the latter on the table in
front of him and began his argument. His
voice was low nnd husky at the start , but
soon gathered strength and remained clear
nud strong to the cud of his foity minutes
speech. His manner of speaking was plain
simple and direct , and In his choice of. words
ho used homolj Anglo-Saxon that was as in
telligible to the laity as to the learned Jus
tices themselves. At the conclusion of his
argument Jeff ( . 'handler addressed the court.
Mr. Starrow for the Boll company followed
Chandler. Arguments will bo resumed _ to

THE WEST SIDE MEN CO OUT ,
A Now Complication Added to the
ONECOLLISION WITH BLUECOATS
The Latter Use Their Clubs nnd Quell
( lie Disturbance In Short Or
der General Sensational
The Chicago Strike.
CHICAGO , Oct. 9. [ Special Telegram to
Tin : Hin. : ] As predicted iu these dispatches
last night , the two thousand drivers and
conductors of Yerkcs' West side lines Joined
the strikers thla morning , and that division
of the city is in the same condition as the
North side. The West side men went out in
sympathy with the North side men. The
general sentiment of the community is that ,
whatever may be the pretext for the North
side strike , the employes of the West side
lines have no solid excuse for their course ;
they having , by the confession of their
leaders , no grievance of their own cither as
to hours or wages.
The strikers arc seriously interfering with
the general business activities of the com
munity , the South side suffering in this re
spect equally with the other divisions of the
city. Yerkes , Mayor Hocho andacominittco
ol strikers were in session mostof the night ,
endeavoring to arrive at n settlement , but ,
although concessions were made on both
sides , no agreement could bo reached , nnd
the conference was brought to an cud.
"You see this ! " said President Yerkcs , of
the North Side company , when a reporter
called on him. "This is what , I received after
the conference broke up last night. " nnd ho
hiindi d the reporter a document which icad
us follows :
Ciucuio , Oct. 9 , 2:25 : n. m. Charles T.
Yerkes , Esq. Dear Sir : The North side
men want it distinctly understood tnat they
will accept nothing less than 'Jl cents per
hour for horse cars , 23 cents per hour for
t.ulrr.s and 2.1 cents per hour for grip cars ,
both conductors and drivers , and the hours
to bo as already agrcoil upon , and that those
men who have been hired sineo the strike
was Inaugurated must bo discharged.
Tin : CoMMi
P. S. Please answer in writing before 4
o'clock a. in , or West side strikes.
"They only offer to concede 2 cents an hour
out of the whole businesa , " ho continued. "I
made concessions until I was tired , but I am
done now and will make no more. "
"Are those you have made still open for
the men's acceptance ! "
"No , everything is withdrawn , All the
efforts I have made to have things pleasant
have been refused. "
"I understand you have had a conference
with Mayor Uoche this forenoon ! "
"There was nothing said about the North
side particularly , except that I told him I
thought he and I had both tried as hard as
we could to tix things up ; that I was done ,
us 1 saw the people wo had to do with would
not admit anything , und it was not worth
while to do any more with them. I have felt
all along that I had to make all the efforts I
did to keep from a rupture with the em
ployes , but as they have struck both on the
Nortli and West sides , we will have no more
to do with them. "
At a o'clock this afternoon three cars ,
under the protection of seventy-live police
men , left the Western avenue barns to make
the Madison street trip. It had not been in
tended to attempt to run any to-day , but at
about 2 o'clock Chief Hubb.ml gave assur
ances of his ability to civo all the protection
necessary to run the cars , and It was decided
to make a trial. Four patrol wagons loaded
with police drove to the barns , and immedi
ately after three closed cars wore drawn out.
Acting Division Superintendent Dubbins
drove and Division Superintendent Cnrse
acted as conductor. Division Superintendent
Y ounce drove the second car and Claim Agent
Fisko wore the bell punch. Superinten
dent Nagle drove the third car , While Team
Inspector Harris performed the duties nf
conductor. There were no policemen on the
curs nnd no stops wore made for passengers.
A patrol wagon loaded with blue coats led
the van ; car No. 94" > followed. Then came a
p itrol wagon , followed by car No. 740.
Another patrol wagon came next , then car
No. 747 , while the fourth patrol wagon
brought up the rear. There was a crowd of
seven or eight hundred strikers and curiosity
seekers about the barns when the procession
left , nnd many others lined both sides of the
street along the route , but with the exception
of derisive yells of "scab , " "rats" and simi
lar pet names , no hostile demonstration was
Tno North side cars were run in about the
same manner as yesterday policemen being
the principal passengers.
Late m the afternoon a small riot occurred
on the North side. A number of cars wcro
passing on Garfleld avenue. The streets
were Jammed with a howling mob , and the
tracks were covered with obstructions.
Some employes of the road and the pfllcers
removed the debris , but as fust as it was
taken away it was replaced. The mob be
came so great that that the sergeant In com
mand of the men ordered a charge. The
oflicers , aggravated somewhat , at the stub
bornness of the crowd , responded with n
will. They made a rush and used tlielr clubs
freely. Men and boys were hit , und hit
Hard , too , and the women wcro not spared.
A woman named Wide , who was particularly
demonstrative against the new men , was
badly wounded by an ofllcer who gave her a
severe olow. Partial order was then restored ,
but uioro trouble is expected. Three men
were eautrht spiking the rails at Halstead
street and were locked at the Larrabeo street
A very sensational report in connection
with the recent action of the leaders of the
strike received a certain amount of continua
tion through the inquiries of 11 reporter to
day. The report was nothing less than tnat
an attempt would bo made to have Luke
Coyne , John Goodwin and George Schilling
prosecuted und locked up under the con
spiracy law. Judge Longoneoker , it is said ,
however , is opposed to using the state's at
torney's otllce or the grand Jury
other than in the regular course
of proceedings according to the
usual practice. This disinclination on his
part was shown strongly during the printers'
strike of last year. At that time the
Typothelaj endeavored to have the striking
compositors arrested , but Mr. Longeiieeker
told John A. May , the present democratic
candidate for state's attorney who then re
presented the employers that the state's at
torney's ofllco could not bo used by either
party in a light of that kind while ho con
"Havo the men bound over by a Justice
of the peace , and when they come betoro
mo in the regular way I'll prosecute them , "
bold Mr. Longencckcr. He gave the same
reply to a deputation of the
boss bakers' association , who waited
on him with a request that lie secure the in
dictment of the leaders of striking journeymen -
men bakers. In r.clther case were the men
brought up , because there was no evidence
sufficient to hold them. The effort was made
by the employers to secure action by the
grand juri' in cases where there was no
ground for arrest or indictment.
Spcakintr of his possible indlctmout Luke
Coyno said : " 1 wish they would try it. I'm
ready for anything of that sort. If this strike
gets into court we can bring out things that
will open the public's eyes. "
DA serious disturbance marked the ending
of a trip on Madison street thiQVcning. As
the cars were approaching Western avenue
on the return a crowd surged around their
in such a compact mass that it was impossi
ble for the horses to move. A platoon ol
police forced a way for the leading car , bul
the ono following was brought to n sudder
stop by a wooden wedge inserted in th 0
switch by fomo person in the crowd. In c
moment utter its stop the vicinity Was pande
monium. Stones and sticks were hurled u
the car ana the air rang will
yells and curses. A flying Tiricl
caught Assistant Superintendent Nagh
who was driving a car , iu the Rtomach' . Ut
on oath , bo pulled u revolver from hi
pocket and turned menacingly towards the
crowd. His example was quickly followed
by the conductor , but the two men wcro dls-
ortncd with little ceremony by tko police ,
Nugle left the car and was attacked by n
Northwestern switchman-who was under the
influence of liquor. This man had to be
mercilessly clubbed and sat upon In the pa
trol wagon by several oflicers before tie
could be subdued. Others were scarcely less
determined , nnd but from the fact that all
appeared to bo unarmed the fray would
scarcely have bccu finished without the loss
ROONK COUNTY POLITICS.
The Republicans Unfortunate In the
Selection of Their Candidate.
AI.IIION , Neb. , Oct. 9. To the Editor of
Tin : HEE ! A. P. Brink , our republican can
didate for representative , docs not create
much enthusiasm in his party. In the past
them has been a great rivalry between Cedar
Rnpuls nnd Albion as to who should get the
loaves and fishes. Albion almost always got
both loaves nnd fishes , and left Cedar Rapids
with nothing but vain promises for the
future. Last year Cedar Rapids rebelled ,
determined not to bo fed on promises any
longer. S. S. Hadley , of Cedar Rapids , who
belongs to the grand old party , was deter
mined , if possible , to reconcile past differ
ences. So Hadley went to Albion and made
n proposition that it Loran Clark , John
Peters ami the rest of the boys would sup
port A. P. Brink for representative that
Cedar Rapids would kiss and bo friends.
This proposition was accepted by Clark and
Peters , if Mr. Brink would take the pledge ,
if elected , he would vote for their man for
United States senator. This pledge Mr.
Brink took. This compromise has been n
great sacrifice to the republicans of Boone
county , nnd no ono knows it better than
Loraii Clark and John Peters. Loran Clark
looks ten years older than ho did before , and
1 believe that many of his political friends of
Nebraska would scarcely know him to-day.
John Peters was not effected so badly , because
he can stand a larger dose. But a close ob
server canses that there Is something weigh
ing heavily on his mind , nnd all tills is be
cause Mr. Brink is offensive to the rank and
file of the republican party ; not because he
lias no record , for ho has. But it would bo
better if he had none. It is tills record that
makes Clark , Peters and the rest of the
bosses sick. Thej now see their mistake of
nominating such a nonentity.
The democrats have nominated Colonel
Fit/hugh for representative. Colonel Fit/-
liugh is well qualified for the ofllco , he being
a gentleman and n scholar , and for these
qualities ho is respected by all. Wo believe
that many republicans will turn in nnd vote
for Colonel Fitzhugb , although n democrat.
In fact , I heard many so express themselves.
W. A. Menrs , one of tha leading republicans
of our county , told myself und others That if
it had not been a senatorial year ho would
stump the county for Colonel Fitzhueh.

It is reported hero that an angry exchange of
communications has taken place between
London nnd Washington with regard to Pres
ident Cleveland's retaliation proposal. Under
pressure exerted by the Canadian govern
ment , Lord Salisbury lias Instructed the
British minister at Washington to protest
the retaliation message as an act of hostility
toward a friendly government , and also a
breach of the modus-vlvcndi agreement
which was made by Joseph Chamberlain ,
representing the British government , ami by
the government at Washington. In other
words , Mr. Cleveland's bungling attempt at
Jingoism has simply angered and disgusted
our neighbors and their homo government.

Special to TUB BEE. ] The Prince of Wales
and Crown Prince Rudolph reached % Gor-
gonyo to-day and at once started on their
bear hunting expedition. Tne keepers re
ported that there were eight bears in the for
est to bo shot. A telegram just received
rom there says the bear hunting began at
loon , when the prince and invited guests ,
tisistinB for the most part of members of
ho Hungarian aristocracy , started from Gor-
gcnyo in a four-in-hand for Adarlan. Thcro
leaches were exchanged for small mountain
horses , and after an hour's ride the party
'cached ' the spot which had b cn selected for
.ho day's sport. To the Prince of Wales was
assigned the position which usually provoj a
good ono , and every ono else having taken up
ils place , the beaters , who arc for the most
iart huge Roumania hlghlanders , dressed in
heir picturesque native costume and brisl
ing with arms of all kinds ,
set to work. Shortly after the forest
tvas alive with startled game , and foxes , deer
and wild boar came rushing through the
undergrowth. These were allowed to pass ,
est in ilring at them the bears should bo
scared away , Not a single bear appeared ,
lowever , and after waiting for a consider
able time venue was changed for ono higher
up the mountain , but again without result ,
so far as the game sought after was con
cerned. Bruin obstinately declined to come
nto the "open , " and eventually the sport
was abandoned for the day. To morrow a
more northern part of the mountain will bo
tried , as it Is believed the great heat which
: ias lately prevailed in the district caused
the bears to desert their usual haunts.
Tlio chamois hunting of the two emperors
