PEFFER OH THE STRIKE Kansas Senator Favors Government Control of Railroads. HE WOULD ABOLISH CONGRESS, •eaatnr Davis Opposes the Kyle Resolution—General Ooriton Given ttentty Applause— Dnntel Offers n Substitute In- dorilng the Action of President Cleveland In Cnlltng Out Federal Troops. WASHINGTON, July 11.—When the •enate met Tuesday and after the transaction of some routine business the resolution introduced by Senator Peffer Monday was laid before the senate. Mr. Pcffer discussed his resolution, which looks to the government control of the railways and coal fields and the adoption «f the doctrine of a single tax. Heap- pealed to senators to listen for while he tras not a prophet, nor the son of a prophet, nor an alarmist, yet he had Ume and time again called the attention »f the country to what seemed to him to lie within the range of an ordinary man's vision—the public danger. All his propositions related to one fundamental erroi •which the country .had fallen into—the danger of allowing a few men here and a few men there to usurp governmental functions. All public functions should be exercised by government officers. Arrogant Attitude of Pullman. He referred to Debs as a man of whom the country heard a great deal lately, fcut of whom it was likely to hear very much more before long. Mr. Peffei said that when the Pullman company established what the people of the world thought to be an ideal community in which all should have equal tights and sone special privileges, every one commended it for its philanthropy. But the charges for rent and the necessaries oi life were deducted from the men'i monthly pay and when their wages were reduced and the men submitted, but asked that their rents and taxes be reduced, but found they were in the powei of a corporation without a soul, until finally they came to the conclusion they xiight as well starve in support of their lights as in filling the coffers of Pullman. He referred to the arrogant attitude of Pullman and of the Pullman officiate and read from morning papers dispatches of the interview of th« Chi- eago aldermev* with Vice Pr&iident Wickes, during which the latter reiterated and reiterated: "The Pullman company has nothing to arbitrate." Whether it was right for the A. E. U. to strike in sympathy and refuse to haul Pullman cars, it was not his purpose to argue, but the ominous situation con- iionted the country and it was our duty to deal with it. Mr. Hawley inquired whether Mr. Peffer did not show the railroads were under obligations to haul the cars. Mr. Peffer replied the railway companies were under no more obligations to Pullman than Pullman was to the railways but this was no time to talk of contracts between Pullman and the railway companies and he was surprised that a senator who had so often championed the cause of the workingmen should talk of such things. Peffer Would AbolUh Cong real. Mr. Peffer proceeded to arraign congress for its defense of monopolies and its stand against the people. He did not wonder sometimes that there was a growing feeling against the congress at Washington and that some wished to abolish the senate. He would go a step farther and, besides seconding an effort to abolish the senate, he would abolish the house of representatives and have the country governed by one man from eacb state. Senator Davis, speaking of the Kyle resolution, said it was put in at a time when the troubles in the west were in progress for the purpose of making the United States a partner in the lawlessness. The strike grew from a strike to a of the day was devoted to debate on a bill extending the act of 1890, declaring lands granted to railroads not then constructed forfeited to the government so as to forfeit the lands of railways whose roads were not comuleted within the time specified in the land grants. The bill involves about 54,000,000 acres. It was not disposed of when the house adjourned. JULY CROP STATISTICS. Average Condition of Corn Is Better Than Last Vcar nt Tills Time.

A number of homesteaders have been burned out boycott, a boycottTto a riot and now tc an insurrection. If the acts of violence kad. been committed upon the great lakes or the high seas it would have been jiracy, and punishable by death. The aenator from Kansas had said the troops should be withdrawn, but he had not given a suggestion of what would protect life and property. Debs could not to so if he was given full power no more than he could restore the cars burned »y his men, He would not speak of parties, but Democrats, Republicans and Populists should unite in restoring peace. Gordon (liven Ileurty Applaune, General Gordon (Ga.) followed in a brief speech, saying that when a great dty was threatened with bloodshed and fire any senator descended very low when he talked of party an did the senator from Kansas. The woe which threatened was not sectional and he spoke not from a a southern standpoint, but as a citizen of this great nation and be urged that the law bo enforced. Senator Gordon finished 'by Baying that his heart felt for the blood that had been shed, but that was as nothing compared to the pride of the republic. The sons ol those who made it would save it bo the cost what It would. Loud applause OH the floor and in the galleries greeted the senator as ho took his goat unchecked for yweral seconds by the vice president's javel, Senator Daniel offered a substitute for the resolution of Senator Potter, indorsing the action of the president, declaring the United States had the power to enforce the laws respecting the mail routes and interstate commerce and to put down riots and action of .treason. There were WMWy culjs for u vote on the Puniols resolution, but Sunutoi Gallinger asked for it to go over uH this was equivalent to an objection. The ppbtofflce appropriation bill was taken up and passed. and all their improvements destroyed. Nnval Cadets Must De Actual Residents ol Their District; Two Vcars Before Their Appointment—Passed the Mining Olalnm Bill —Differences on the Tariff Discussed, Strikers Going Into Court. WASHINGTON, July 10, — After the transaction of some business of minor importance Monday the senate took up the naval appropriation bill. White (Ual.) called attention to the action of the committee in striking out the appropriation of $5U,000 for a steam tug to Mare Island navy yard and had read a letter from the secretary of the navy ( indorsing the necessity for the tug. The appropriation was allowed to stand. Senator Allen offered an amendment, which was agreed to, providing all appointees as naval cadets shall have been actual residents of the district from which they are appointed for at least two years prior to their appointment. The bill, as amended, was passed. The senate passed a house bill relative to mining claims. It provides for the temporary suspension of the requirement that a certain sum of money shall be expended each year on mining claims until a patent shall have been granted. Senator Blackburn announced the death of Representative Marcus C. Lisle (Ky.) last Saturday, and after the adoption of the customary resolutions the senate adjourned. Differences on th» Tariff Dimmed. WASHINGTON, July 10.—The first day of the conference of the Democratic con- feres of the two houses was without practical results or visible progress so far as can be learned. The day was devoted to a general discussion of the main features of the bill and the principal points of differences between the two houses. The conference on the part of the representatives was used to point out the radical change in the policy involved in the senate's departure from the free raw materials and the ad valorem system, and they asserted that the senate bill was not all the country demanded in the way of tariff reform. The senate representatives said it was the mo«t radical bill that could be passed in the senate and announced » determination to stand for the bill practically as it passed the senate. Treannry Official! Encouraged, WASHINGTON, July 10.—The net cash balance in the treasury at the close of business Monday was $121,608,383, of which $64,241,406 was gold reserve. This is an increase in the cash balance June 27 of nearly $7,500,000, and an increase in the gold reserve since June 2D of nearly $a,250,000. The treasury officials are greatly encouraged at the seeming cessation of the gold export movement and the great increase in internal revenue receipts and are very confident these conditions added to the probable early passage of the new tariff bill will result in a large increase of the cash balance and the gold reserve. Striker* Going Into Court. WASHINGTON, July 10.—The statement is telegraphed here from California that the strikers are about to apply to the United States court to compel the Southern Pacific railway company to show cause why they should not be compelled to operate their road under the terms of their charter. This was not disagreeable news to the war department and they rather hoped that such a step would be taken for it would oblige the railroad company to supplement the efforts of the military by every meann in their power and there is a suspicion that it has been a little las in this respect so far.
