Prohibition no Longer a Test of Republican
Party realty in Iowa
Hie "Bottled Policy" Blunder of Imst
Vein * Condemned by the Sioux
City Convention Tlio
New Platform.
Sioux CITT , In. , Juno 25. ( Special Tele
gram to TUB Bm.j : The republican conven
tion today was tlio most harmonious and en
thusiastic that has been held for years. There
wore prognostications of discord mid faction ,
nnd tbcro seemed to bo many rocks upon
which it might strike , but nil such anticipa
tions nro utterly disappointed by the action
of the convention. The chief Interest of the
convention was not In the ticket , although
thOro was a largo Hold of candidates for tlio
various nominations and a spirited contest
among them. The contests , however , wcro
friendly , and the ticket as it is made
up is composed of fairly repre
sentative men , and Judiciously distributed as
to locality. All the nominations were made
unanimous , not merely as u matter of form ,
hut ns the reflection of a gcnultio spirit of
The Interest In the convention , ns was ex
pected , centered chiefly in the temperance is-
The reverse uustalncd by the party in
) last year's election in tlio election of a demo
cratic governor brought again to the front the
element of the party which all along has pro
tested moro or less vigorously against the
prohibitory policy. This clement began
BOOH after the election a movement
for the purpose of modifying the de
clared ( position of the party. While
the legislature was in .session the nnti-pio-
hibltlonists held a largely attended conven
tion iu DCS Molncs , nnd the president of tlio
organisation , II. S. Fairall , of Iowa City ,
was charged with t'ho work of organising tlio
force ? for this convention. The counties in
which nro located the larger cities and some
of tlio rural conties scjit strong auti-prohibi-
tlon delegations to the convention , and they
eamu upon the ground early. At the mime
time the nioio radical prohibition clement
took alarm immediately after the call for the
convention. The state temperance al
liance issued n proclamation , calling
upon its members to bo on their guard
and to be active at the primaries. It was
from thcso conflicting factions that cmbar-
lassment was fc.ned , mid in fact predicted.
The two factions last night held separate and
largely attended caucuses. About two bund
led delegates joined in thu anti-pioliibitioii
caucus. The caucus adopted a carefully pre
pared programme of work nnd appointed as a
strong committee to appear before the com
mittee on resolutions nnd to protest against n
prohibitory plank the following named gen
tlemen : II. S. Fairall , J. C. Davis , Col
onel D. E. Lyon , Major William
G , Thompson , Dr. J. A. Uiggcn , J. A.
Lccns. Captain J. O'Kcefo , T. J. Evr.iis ,
W , II. Forbcrt , Colonel George A Clark ,
Prince Seaman , A. W. Erwin , and F. W.
Smith. These arc nil leading icpublicaus and
rroprescnt every scctioii of the stato. The
, xiTiohIbltlon caucus last night was oven moro
larkely attended. It adopted resolutions , the
-'essential ono bgiug as follows :
UusoUed , That wo unflinchingly stand for
the prohibitory Htatnto of Iowa , passed In obt-
( llenoo ti > the iixpressod will of tno people und
for Us complete onfoiuuincnl.
J. II. Loiter , a noted prohibition leaderwas
designated to present the resolutions to the
platform committco. The contest to contiol
tlio platform committee was au earnest one.
The outiight anti-prohibitionists secured only
two among the eleven members of the com
mittee , being these fiom the Second and
Third congressional districts. But a consid
erable number of the members weio conservative
vative republicans.
The debate in the platform committee was
long and eai nest , and for a time it looked as if
no ngicement was possible. But a final com
promise , however , was readied. The antl-
prohlbitionists accepted the declaration that
the putty makes no now teat of fealty , while
the prohibitionists tire content with the dec
laration against a compromise with the saloon
nnd the platform was unanimously repotted
by the committco and adopted by the conven
Thcro was a powerful sentiment In the con-
.vention In favor of a declaration for unlim
ited silver coinage. The committee was plied
with telegrams and loiters from Washington
piotcsting against such a declaration.
Among other communications on this subject
was one from Speaker Heed. There were
telegrams from every Iowa congressman.
The platform committee was strongly inclined
to unlimited silver coinage , and tlio conven
tion beyond question would have adopted it ,
but the plank as finished declared only lor
frco coinage of the product of American mines.
Thuro was equal anxiety in Washington as
to the tariff plank , but the committee framed
nn independent statement. 'J ho presiding df-
llcor , the venerable ex-Senator George G
Wright of DCS Moincs. an old-time republi
can war horse , added dignity to the conven
tion and added greatly to dispatch business.
Them was also a very largo attendance of the
older leaders of Iowa republicanism , many of
whom came as quiet spectators and not us

TIIU Bii.j : Tlio bccond day of the tourna
ment is but a repetition of the first iu every
respect but races. At an early hour this
morning ciowds began to congregate on the
streets to witness the par.ulc.
At 7 n. m. a special train over the Burling
ton brought iu the Omaha Veterans' associ
ation and the Union Pacific lire department
with their friends and two babuls. They
were escorted up street to a hall , where they
were welcomed by the local firemen , and as
the veterans marched up the streets every
one remarked at their line appearance.
The parade formed at } 0 n. m. and marched
thiough tno principal streets iu the following
order :

and Nebraska City running team.
After the pnrndo the presentation of the
banner to bo given to the finest looking and
host uniformed company took plnco. It was
awarded to the Omaiia veterans.
At the races in the afternoon the state hose

mntithU45 ; Wide Awake of Kear

laa-Ti ; Corcoran of York , U5 : ; Amoras ,
411-5 ; Neville of Plattsmouth , no time.
The Alexanders had a bcjl coupling
nnd the Judges took the time
under advisement until this even
ing , when they agreed to allow them
to run over. The hose broke on the Neville
cart after making a run of thirty-five seconds
ends ; tlio board of control bald it was out of
the question to glvo them another trial ,
but us no protests had been
entered and a precedent had
been made nt Kearney where the
Fremont hose cart broke down and they got
another trial , it was decided to give them the
same chance. It they make the run they did
today the PlattMiiouth team will have the
cat t.
The stnto hook nnd ladder race
took place ntIjiJO witU.only
two entries. JMebr.iska City took

Free anil unlltnltod coinage has for tlio second -
end tlino failed iti the house of represontu-
tlvcs. The majority against It this after
noon was seventeen. The proposition came
up in the form of u motion to nou-eoncur in
the senate's amendments to the Wludom bill ,
the principle of which was free coinage. A
few minutes before n vote was taken it was
feared by many who conscientiously believed
that it would ho Injurious to the best Inter
ests of the country to have free and unlim
ited colnago that the motion to non-concur
would full , as oho democrats wcro exerting
themselves with great vchcmcnco to get all
of their members in line and vote solidly
against , the committee's proposition. It was
nrgued by Mr. Mills and other democrats
that this would bo a good opportunity for the
democrats to make a political point that the
president would veto a frco coinage bill , and ,
knowing this , the.monomcWHsts from the
east would bo justified in voting for frco
coinage against the wi"hes of their constitu
ents because they run no risk of making it
possible for the proposition to bccomo
a law. The limited coinage democrats
woule not bo beguiled and drawn into such a
scheme , and so they voted for non-concur
rence In the senate's amendments. About an
equal number of republicans voted against
non-concurrence , so that as far ns partisan
views were concerned the break of the nnti-
free coinage democrats was but a stand-off to
the republicans who voted for frco coinage.
There was the largest vote cast upon thtsprop-
osition that has been developed for some
weeks , 287 out of the 330 members being
recorded as voting. Thcro was a very
perceptible agitation on both sides of
the house as the roll was being called upon
the first amendment free coinage.
A number of senators fiom both sides of
tno chamber were on the floor of the house
urging their friends to stand to their convic
tions. There was but one aye and nny vote
taken--that upon the question of concurrence
in the senate's amendment for frco coinage.
The other votes worn viva voice , as it becumo
apparent that the anti-free coinage men had
a linn majority of seventeen.
The fico coinage men in both houses
have given up the contest. It is
conceded Hint the conference committee will
niftco to u bill providing for the coinage of
54,500,000 -J.ritKI.OOO ounces of silver bullion
monthly , and that thu certificates issued for
the purchase of the bullion will bo made a
full legal tender for public and private debts.
This A\S ! accepted by nearly all the frco
coinage men as satisfactory , and it is believed
that it will uot only satisfy the silver produc
ing states , but glvo the most general satisfac
tion to liberal silver men in ovnry section of
the country. It will set"at rest
all fears which would constantly bo
entertained under a frco colnago act of hav-
a ing nlsurplus'offorcignbnllloncoinodflnto1
American money which would take the place
of our gold and eventually drain the United
States of one of its principal metal bases of
Barring very unexpected changes , there
will be no more excitement over the silver
question iu Washington and within a few
days a silver bill will become a law.
Nebraska's three representatives voted sol
idly , as thov have on several former occasions
in this session , for free colnago and for the
semite amendment providing for a full legal
tender clause in the bill.
Senator Pottiijrcw of South Dakota , who is
a member of the senate committco on Indian
affairs , says the bloodthirsty Ohoycnncs on
Tongno river and other sections of Montana
will not bo shipped down into his state. lie
says the appropriation placed in the Indian
bill in the house at the icuuest of Uepresen-
tativo Cai ter , providing for tiio transfer of
the Cheyeiincs from Montana to the Sioux
icsorvation in South Dakota , will bo stricken
out iu the senate because they are not wanted
in his state. Senator Pettljrrow says that ho
would prefer and thinks it would bo much
easier to have the 5'WChoyennos ' In South Da
kota transferred to Montana than to have
the 200 Choycnnes in the 'lat
ter state sent down into the former.
Ho has given notice to the Montana men that
they need not expect to get rid of their thiev
ing and murderous Choyennes , ns they are
termed , if they expect to send thorn to South
Dakota , and Senator Pcttlgrow is in a posi
tion to fullill his promises. Senator Petti-
grew says fnither that he does not sea how
the Clicycniies of Montana could bo evangel-
bed any better in South Dakota than in Mon
tana , or why it could bo expected that the
climate iu ills state could have any more of a
moral influence upon the savages than the
salubrioi s atmosphere of Montana.
A practical Joke was perpetrated by Sen
ator Edmunds upon Senator Call today. The
latter is the most nearly incessant talker in
the upper branch of congress and never fails'
to cmuraco an opportunity to tnlce up space
In the Congressional Hecord. This afternoon
ho opened himself and thought ho would
make some munitions to bo used in Ills approaching
preaching campaign by advocating nn inde
pendent lorm of government for the island of
Cuba. Senator Edmunds immediately arose
and said that inasmuch us ttio senator from
Florida desired to speak upon international
comity and alfairs which properly belonged
to an executive session of the senate the
doors should bo closed. His suggestion was
adopted and the speech of Senator Call will ,
of course , not appear in the Hecord ,
and of course cannot ho given to the public.
Senator Call did not appear to enjoy the hot
weather Joke and it is said the speech which
ho Intended to bo of several hours' length oc
cupied but a few minutes behind the closed
doors , whore the temperature was almost 10D.
This blow came upon the heels of n severe
"scutching" at the hands of Senator Ing-alls
and others for a gross breach of the privil
eges of the senate. Mr. Call published In the
Uoeorfl today a statement intended to show
that ho had done more than everybody clso
in the senate. It was a comparison of the
number of bills gotten through by each
senator mid was full of misrepresentations.
One by ono the senators got up and de
nounced the publication as n tissue of false
hoods. Verily Senator Call is having u hard
vow to hoe towards re-election.
I asked an ultra free eoinngo advocate and
11 determined limited coinage man In the sen
ate to toll me , In a sentence each , If possible ,
why ttio positions they occupied in the pres
ent contest wore the most tenable. The free
coinage senator said :
"Tho nubile man who takes n position
against the frco admission of raw material
with which to make money itself cannot bo
regarded us an advocate of relief from the
scarcity of money , for the more money wo
manufacture in tills country the more wo
will have for circulation , oven though wo
make It , Hko the miller makes Hour , on
the shares ; and besides , there will bo n
stability In the Increase of the circulating
medium if wo have free coinage which wo
cannot have if wo plnco n limit upon the
supply , thereby casting doubt upon the face
of the act as to whether it is just the proper
thing , and announcing that it Is riskv bust-
ness , but wo are willing to try It to a certain
extent. "
ThU Is what the senator said who advo
cates limited coiimga and u bullion redemp
tion feature ;
"Free coinage will bo a menace to our finan
cial system , for the reason that this will bo-
coma the dumping ground forjffio surulus sli
ver of ttto world , where abbuUJJ ! , ccnta worth
I of silver bullion can bo broughttftnd exchanged

Mr. Call rose to address the senate on the
subject of resolutions heretofore offered by
him ( and reported back adversely from ttio

When the clerk was reading tlio second
resolution Mr. Sherman rose and moved that
the doors bo closed ,
Mr. Edmunds seconded the motion nnd the
vice president directed tbo galleries cleared
and the doors closed.
Mr. Call , being thus unexpectedly cut off
in his desire to make a speech before the
public , said that ho would withdraw the roa-
alutlon , but the order to close the doors was
insisted upon by Messrs. Sherman and Ed
munds and was carried into execution.
The doors wcro reopened tit 1 ; 30 and the
senate took up the house bill for the admis
sion of Wyoming to the union as n state.
Tlio bill was temporarily laid usldo nnd Mr.

Mr. Vest opposed the bill , IIo hue Mu
past of states being admitted with snt > p <
iilutlons because of some sectional or y
exigencies. But notio such existed
Wyoming , ho said , hns n population o
less than sixty thousand , scattered ovO. an
Immense area. Ho would not vote for the
admission of Wyoming with Its present con *
Mitution , permitting woman suffrage.
Woman sufti-ago was antagonistic to tiia
spirit and institutions of tlio Amor-
lean people. Ho deplored the extension ol
fcuffrugoto colored men In the south and said
no Intellgent man today would glvo it te
them. Ho himself would no moro give them
the right of suffrage than ho would glvo n
deadly weapon to n child. Certainly he
would not glvo it to colored women , who
were far mnro Impulsive nud thoughtless
than men. Another objection Mr. Vest made
to the constitution of Wyoming was that it
gave the light of holding property to aliens.
Mr. Phut said Wyoming bad us good n tight
to admission as nny territory over admitted.
Ho was surprised that gentlemen so devoted
to "homo rule" should not bo willing to allow
n territory to decide woman suffrage for it
self. Ho believed tlio population of Wyoming
nearer 125,000 than 100,000. In conclusion.
Mr. Pratt spoke of tlio great resources 01
Wyoming und said that with Irrigation it
could support 10,000,000 people.
At the close of Mr. Pnitt's remarks ho
made an effort to have a vote taken on the
bill , but Mr. Vest objected nnd moved nu
mcndment and the senate adjourned.
ClinngcH Kooommemled by tlio Senate
Finance Committee.
WASIIIXOTO.V , Juno 25. The text of the
tariff bill , together with the changes recom
mended by tlio senate finance committee nud
explanations thereof , wcro furnished today
to the senate. The committee states that the
changes made from specific to ndvalorcm
rates and vice versa were for the purpose of
simplifying and expediting the collection of
duties. The increases were made because
they were believed to bo no moro than neces
sary to protect domestic industry. Tlio rea
son given for a reduction In most Instances
was that the new rate was believed to afford
hufllcicnt protection. The committee believes
that lead contained in silver ore should not bo
admitted for le--s than lend in any other metal ,
hence a duty of l' cents per pound. A.s to
sugar the committco says : "Sugar up to No.
Ill Dutch standard was placed upon the free
list as n matter of wise public policy mid a
bounty provided in order to encourage domes
tic production , " The committee says as to
wool : "Tlio demand from the representative
wool growers of the country that rates upon
wool .should bo largely increased lias led the
committee to recommend the adoption of the
nc\v classification hoieln suggested , which , it
is hoped , will result in a uniform mid honest
classification of wool. The increase of rates
for manufacturer : ) ' wool lias been made neces
sary for this increase in wool rates. "

Telegraphic advices from points in
ttiis state , Wisconsin and Iowa Indicate
that the tie up on tlio Illinois Central
is not as complete outside of Chicago as was
generally supposed. While most of the
branch lines seem to bo at a Htnudstlll , ad
vices are to the effect that the main stem ,
which traverses the state from Uiiluth to
Cairo , is still in operation , nnd that the
lines in Wisconsin and Iowa have not
so far been affected. The fact is that the
chief ofllccr of the united railway employes ,
who nlono has authority to order a .strike ,
has taken no action In the in liter. Yester
day's action of the strikers , declaring a tie-
up on all the lines under the management of
Division Superintendent Itnsscll , was taken
without authority in tlio hope that tlio chief
of tlio order would approve it as nn accom
plished fact.
A conference was held between the strikers
nnd olllciiils of the road today , but as far as
known practically nothing resulted except n
heated wrangle. The divisions of the road
now repotted completely tied up are tlioso
from Chicago to Centralia , 111. Chicago to
Freeport , 111. , and Chicago to Unbuquo , la.
As result of the the
a tie-up express -

from points on tlio Illinois Central is being
brought in by roundabout routes , over con
necting lines. It is estimated that between
fifteen and sixteen bundled men are idle.
There is danger that unless tlio strike is
soon satilod it will spiead to other roads.
Tim Big Four road , which tins a trackago
nirangement with the Illinois Central ,
finding itself unable to got freight into ,
the city , made an arrangement with the
Chicago it Kastein Illinois. The strikers ,
suspecting that the Illinois Central was also
using the Eastern Illinois , sent word to the
employes of that line not to handle Illinois
Central freight. Tlio request was complied
with wilh a vengeance , tno Eastern Illinois
men refusing to handle nny moro Big Four
cars. Much porWiablo freight is now sine-
tracked. On the Illinois Central tracks largo
quiinlltUa of fruits and berries are side
tracked nt various points nnd fast rotting in
tlio boiling sini. The ofileials of the road have
issued an order to sell these goods out as last
ns possible.
Committees of trainmen from several loads ,
including the Chicago , Milwaukee & fat.
Paul and Chicago , St. Paul As Kansas City
road * , have oflcrcd to make the strike gen
eral unless the trouble is settled tonight.
Superintendent UiiHsell was formerly con
nected with thcso roads , and they saj tie
piovcd so obnoxious that he-was forced oil'
those lines.
The Illinois Central today receded from its
position that it was not acquired to send out

which could not bo made up. The postofllca
