Washington Dispatch te N, Y.Hratil, Jnne2P
What was known only te a few yesterday
became very generally known te-day, ami
that la that ths administration has openly
arrayed lteeU against the passage of the
McKtnley tariff bill.
When the ways and means committee
was preparing a tariff Secretary Blaine
endeavored te Impress upon Its members
the felly of putting sugar en the free list.
The oxcuse was that the agricultural
interests of the country demanded it aud
the Farmers' Alliance just then was mero
influential than the argument of Mr.
Blaine. Subsequently Mr. Hltt, chairman
of the Heuse commlttee en foreign affairs,
Introduced a joint resolution Intended te
give the president power te make sub
stantial reciprocity treaties with the Central
and Seuth American countries.
The same views oppressed te momben
of the ways and means commlttee had also
been repeated te members of the Seuate
The ways and means committee had but
one possible presidential candidate in its
midst. The nuance committee has two at
least, and te be influenced by anything Mr.
Blaine might say would be te strengthen
the statesman from Maine and diminish
the possible chances of the Ohie and Iowa
aspirants for a presidential nomination.
Finally it became necessary as ovldeuce
of geed faith en the part of the administra
tion te show that It did net approve the
free sugar platform. It se happened that
Secretary Blaine had opportunity of
nirlng the views of the president yesterday
in three different ways In his letter toCon teCon toCen
grass, in the reply te the telegram from the
millers' convention at Minneapolis and In
a speech befere the Seuate appropriation
committee. Mr. Blalne had opportunity
efrepeating en the same day in three
different ways the objections the adminis
tration holds against the McKiuley bill.
In the written statement intended for
public circulation the seeietnry necessarily
was confined te the proprieties of expres
sion In vogne In efllclal llfe in giving
utterance te his views.
But in the Seuate appropriation commit commit
tee it is said he waived this restraint aud
delivered a lecture en political economy te
Mr. Allisen, of Iowa, that was net intended
for the eye or ear of the public. Reference
was made te this last scene In these dis
patches te-day, but according te one of the
auditors no account yet published dees the
matter Justice. The question under con
sideration was the necessity for increased
appropriation in completing the record of
the Pan-American Congress.
Sonater Hale, of Maine, who is en the
committee, said something which drew out
Mr. Blaine, and he procecded in the most
impassioned manner .nd with much of his
old tlme fervor and olequenco te tell the
rommlttce what in his Judgment would be
the effect of the passage of the McKlnley
It gees without baying that Mr. Allisen
did net llke the Idea of being lashed as a
member of the appropriation commlttee
for what he had done as a member of the
finance committee, und he ratber resented
being called te account for the result of its
The Democratic member of the commit
tee, Mr. Blackburn, was delighted with the
tone of Mr. Blaine's view and at an oppor
tune moment he is reported te have said :
" I wish you were net Mr. Secretary and
were in this Senate te raise your voice
against this McKlnley bill."
Mr. Blaine I wish se tee. It Is the most
dangerous, if net the most infamous meas
ure that was ever concocted by any purty.
The men who vete for this bill will wreck
the Republican party. If I were In the
Senate I would rather have my right arm
tern out of Its socket than vote for this bill.
Senater Allisen (with seme feeling)
Yeu are winking at Senater Blackburn
across the table and are Just saying this te
Mr. Blaine I was winking at Senater
Blackburn because he was winking at me ;
but I say solemnly that this McKlnley bill
is an outrage aud ought te be killed by
Mr. Blalne then finished the remarks he
had outlined en the Importance of the ap
propriation and retired.
Senater Allisen, It Is said, feels very
kcenlv the weight of responsibility the
secretary put upon him, the mere se since
he had already disclaimed all desire te le

nance committee's labor in revislng the

Netice or a British Measure te Exelude
In the Heuse of Commens en Friday,
Mr. Charles Heward Vincent (Conserva

whetlier the government would icquire the
United States te modify the prohibitive
duties upon British prod nets befere it
would make any modifications In the rules
governing the Importation of Ainerican
cattle into Great Britain.
Sir James Fergusen said that the restric
tions upon the importation of cattle into
Great Britain w ere based solely en sanitary
consideration!,, without regard te the fiscal
systems of ethor nations.
Mr. Vincent thereupon laid upon the
tableef the Heuse notlce that he would sub
mit a motion, declaring that as the pro pre pro
fiesed American tariff will Intllct a great
njury upon the trade of Shellleld, and
upon British traders and artisans generally,
the Heuso will consider wheth r a free

The Head of the Federation of Laber
Denounced at a Publle Meeting.
The expected debate between T. V.
Fewderly, head of the Knights of Laber,
and Samuel Gompers, of the American
Federation of Laber, caused a great crowd
te gather at Cooper Union New Yerk, en
Friday evenlng. The meeting, as is the
custom, was given en the event of the
session of the executive beard of the
Knights of Laber, under whose auspices It
was called. r
The sympathy of the crowd wad clear
when General Master Workman Powderly
appeared en the platform. He was loudly
applauded by the crowd, which filled every
seat and banked Itself up In the rear of the
hall. Mr. Pewderly introduced Geerge
Warner as the chairman of the meeting.
Alexander Wright, of the oxecutlve
beard, was the first speaker. After stating
the purpose of the meeting as set forth in
the circular te be a reply te accusations
made against the Knights by the Ameri
can Federation of Laber, no proceeded
with the remark, probably referring te
Mr. Gompers' reply, that It would be lm-
Cosstblele Judge of the merits of a battle
y the bray of every ass In the baggage
train. The time had come when labor was
no longer a term of reproach, and even
politicians bttd come te assert that they
belonged te the labor cause.
After Mr. Wright, Mr. Pewderly was
introduced amid great cheering.
Mr. Powderly, referring te the fight
going en, said: "It is with feeling of sad
ness that I stand hern new for the purpose
of discussing a question that I must dis
cuss tonight, I would rather loave it
alone and net touch upon It at all. I shall
go en in the path I have a' ways travelled
without any one interfering with me. We
are net here te answer for our misdeeds, or
say anything In extenuation of our faults
that we have been guilty of."
With a few Introductory remarks Mr.
Powderly read a second letter from Samuel
Gompers, and said that Mr. Warner would
speak concerning the disposition of It. That
gentleman then came forward. He said
the letter had been considered by the ex
ecutive beard, which decided that, as the
meeting had been arranged for Knights of
Laber, and Mr. Gompers deslicd half of
the tlme of the meeting, it was net cou ceu cou
censldcrod advisable te accept Mr. Gomp
ers' offer. Th ere was a general stampede
at this point, and about 200 persons left the
hall in a body by concerted action.
Mr. Pewderly said: "All these who de
sire may leave the ball new, as there are
hundreds of ethors who cannot get In."
This was proved by the fact that the seats
vacated were seen filled again. Mr. Pow Pew Pew
eorly, continuing his speech, said : " It is
posslble that I may be accused of reviewing
ancient history, but it Is ncocessary te ro re
fer te things that are past. In the city of
Kochester rocently some reference was
nade te the banner we are sailing under.
It Is true that we are proud of the
first declaration of principles that the
first ucneral assembly adopted in 1874."
Mr. Powderly then speke of the eight
hour mevement, en which subject he suld ;
"We all want eight hours, but we bollevo
In practical methods. He read documents
te show that the Knights of Laber were the
first te suggest that eight hours be fixed for
a day's labor, and fixed for May 1, 181)0, at
the St. Leuis convention, and continued,
" New you cm see or Imagine hew 38 men
could speak for the whele crowd. Laugh
ter. In the struggle for eight hours the
Knights would help theso who were will
ing te help themselves."
Sir. Powderly then went ever the records
te show the comparative strength of the
Federation and the Knights organizations
and showing hew the latter has been draw
ing away from the former. The speaker
spoke warmly toward the close of his
speech, telling hew the Knights had taken
100,000 of the 400,000 elalmed by the Federa
tion. The first trouble we had, said the
speaker, was when we raised the price of
cigars in Pennsylvania and took the work
from tlielr men.
I will trlve away this moment, as Ged
hears me, the position I held net a pleas
ant ene If the workmen of America want
te place Samuel Gompers in my place. If
he or any ethor man Is the ene te lead, I
will keep step with the men In the ranks.
I knew as well hew te fellow as te lead.
Many of us will go down In the dust, but
nover let us lend our efforts te the men
who have taken the assassin's dagger as a
weapon te use against the cause of labor.
We nave allowed every slur, every glbe,
every remark te go unnoticed, but lreiu
this time out we shall seek no quarrel, but
when a snarling cur from the ranks of
labor shall snub us we shall strike him

frightened the horse of Andersen A Grose Grese

AM OTHER RUN AW AT.
The Horses Keep Up the Werk or Get
Whonever one runaway occurs In this
city during a week there Is pretty certain
te be mere, and it seems as though the
horses read the newspapers. This week
has net been se bad for the horse, and
another Hern In his favor Is added te the
list te-day. Just about the tlme thatthe0:25
train from Beading was due at the King
street station two ladles named Shumnn,
who live in Maner township, drove a large
and frisky herse, hitched te a covered
market wagon, down West King street. In
front of them was a man named Shenki
from the same neighborhood, driving a
u mule. Samuel McCermlck, the railroad
watchman, notified the poeplo te stay back
and net attempt te cress the tracks,
when the train was yet at Orange street.
One of the ladles was afraid that her herse
would frighten, and she Jumped out of the
wagon. As she did se her feet caught
In the lines and she foil. This
frightened the herse and he started te run.
He passed Shenk's team and crossed the
railroad track In front of the onglue. The
woman was dragged seme distance, but
became loose from the lines between
the railroad tracks and street crossing.
She was then picked up by Police
Sergeant Fritch and ethors and as
sisted Inte Wlant's grocery store, where
she was found te be somewhat bruised,
but terribly frlghtened. The horse, with
the ether lady In the wagon, ran te West
King and Mulberry street, whero he was
caught by Geerge Remley. who handed
him evor te Officers J. Kautz and I).
Snyder. Shenk's wagon, as well as that of
the runaway, was slightly damaged.
RIVAL POLITICAL C'LUUK.
Anybody Can Get a Free Ticket te Har
rtHburg Next Week.
Free tickets te Harrlsburg for the Re
publican state convention In that city next
week are te be had for the asking. In fact
the tickets could net be dlsposed of fast
enough that way and commlttees of the
rival political clubs are scouring the town
for recruits. The inducements held out
are the froe tickets, plenty te cat and all te
drink that Is wanted.
After B. Frank Kshleman recruited his
Hastings club, the friends efE. K. Martin,
who are also the friends of Dolamater, saw
the necessity or discounting the Hastings
boom bocause It was a slap at Martin, and
they went te work with a determination of
sending a club te Harrlsburg In the inter
est of Martin that would outnumber and
outyell the ether fellows.
The moving Bplrlt In the Delamater
mevement Is Lewis S. Hartman, and he is
going into it with all the vigor and enthu
siasm for which he is noted. He proposes
taking te Harrlsburg a club twlce us large
In uumberas the Hastings. There have
been mi inoreus dosertlons from the Hast
ings club slnce the ethor was started and
the fcellng is getting very bitter betwoen
the members of theso rival clubs. Martin's
club has ongaged the Metropolitan band,
of Columbia, and the Hastings club will
march te the music of the Iroquois band.
The Harrlsburg correspondent of Candi
date Martin's paper says the organization
oftheHastingsclublstho work of a few
disgruntled persens ititonded te Injuie
the candidacy of E. K. Martin for lieu
tenant govorner and that persons who
coine will net help Gen. Hastings, nor add
uny credit te themselves. At the tlme the
artlcle was written It was net known te the
correspondent that a club In Martin's
interest, te be accoinpanled by a brass
band, were te be In Harrlsburg at the con
vention or he would net have written that
"brass bands und much shouting have
been no factors In this campaign se far,
nor will It make or iinmake any candldate
at this Inte dale."
Many people are surprised that Lewis
Hartman should tuke smrii an active part
in the intorest of Delamater, us it was first
believed that he was against Quay's man.
Betwoen Hartman and Cel. Kshleman
thore are lets of railroad tickets for Harrls
burg and a man witti a clean suit of cloth cleth cloth
ing.whe will yell for olther faction, can get
ene with oase.

A NEW DEMAND FOR DRAINS.
But They are Net Wanted Until Their
Owners nre Dead.
Prer. Burt G. Wilder, Professer of
physiology, comparative anatomy, and
zoology In Cern oil University, has Just
entered upon a most rcmnrkable Hue of
Investigation. Net satisfied with col
lecting 4,000 specimens of ontlre
animals In alcohol, he has de
clded te give his attention te careful
study of the human brain by means of
actual observation, examination aud ex
perimentation. Fer this purose he has
get together within the last year the brains
of several hundred persens who died re
cently. Among these are the brains of
philosophers, artists, business tueu, and
even murderers. In this latter class ene
Menkin, the Ettnlra murderer, and Ruloff,
the Blnghamtnu murderer. Dr. Wilder has
discovered some very curious facts from his
study and observations, facts which have
a distinct bearing en questions of ethlcs,
such as certain men's accountability for
their crimes. By a peculiar process Dr.
Wilder hardens the braiu befere It Is faketi
from the body, se that one can handle the
decoased subject's thinking apparatus as
easily as he can a feet ball. Dr. Wilder
is anxious te get the brains of
philosophers nnd professors, and is en a
still hunt for boquestsef this kind. One
prominent cel lege president has already
presented his bruins en his docnase, aud
several professors of leading odiicallennl
institutions have donated their bodies as
well as their brains.
Dr. Wilder has formulated seme curious
prepositions regarding the brains of people
who have been Insane. Among ethor
things he shows almost conclusively that
Insanity in many cases springs from lack
of cerebral nutriment consequent en a
peer bleed circulation. Dr. Wilder says
lie hopes the newspaper editors will send

In fact, as you have nover heard of me

Last week the Washington county Times
published a story credited te a St- Paul
paper. In which It was set forth that you
wero legal ewner, by the possession of an
old deed, of section 30, township 3, range

at first, for I own half of that section my
self, though, as it new appears, my title te
the land Is Itniwfect. The ethor day I re

Jacksonville of the true state of adalrs, and
what I have new te say te you Is, after due

It is very valuable. I own a timber mill

of $1 ,000 a year. I have also three farms,

net see in favorable te the new building,

fact there seems te be some doubt. The
Judges HAy little, but they son in favorable te
sending some of the peuple te Harrlsburg.
They think lhat If they are sent there by
