HEADQUARTERS FOF^ =8- CITT, Feb. 2.— Rayner, ot Marylan I, rnnile himself a name with the workingmcn'* combinations throughout the Kiuiitfy Wednesday, whim be took up the tanso of the Reading Btrikers and got the house lo sit down on the report In favor of relegating tho Investigation of the strike to the inti-r-Btste ooinmtmlon. Rayner gave eviiJenw of being a 'man of very vigoroua eloquence, and was warmly congratulated bv a score or tho of the members. > Helald about him right manfully in a decidedly warm denunciation of monopolies, etc., and is gom-i-nlly given the credit of carrying the day for a congressional investigation. . Clardy of Missouri, the chairman of the honse committee on commerce, in presenting the majority report on tho house resolution to investigate the Reading strike, which was that the wholi matter bo referred to the Inter-elate commerce, said that It was entirely within the province of the commission to investigate it. Rnyner, a member of the dissenting majority of the committee, flxed tbe attention of tbf» home and galleries In his opening phrase. Bursts of applauso greeted his every pario;L "I know that monopoly Is an enemy lerrible to encounter" he conclude,!, "nut I have never seen the day in the halls of legislation when honor without price and manhood without fear could not drive It like a ukulklng coward from tbe field of battle." Round after round of applause echoed and reechoed throughout the chamber, and 'the speaker's gavel could not bring tbe bouse to order for five minutes. Raj nor had bla hand grasped by forty men, and Jhe requust of the majority of the commerce committee was doomed beyond peradventure, Grosvenor of Ohio inquired why, if the railroad company was chartered nnder the laws of Pennsylvania, and had deviated from the business authorized by its charter, proceedings In the nature of quo warranto could not be instituted agalnit It In the state court*. Rayner [sarcastically]— The _ courts of ' "habit "of "granting" . leave of absence each year. The resolution for an Inquiry into the Reading strike was then taken up, Rayner of Maryland championing the minority report, 1 which favored a special committee. He roundly denounced the Reading officials, and made a general onslaught upon all monopolies, and in the end carried his point, a resolution beinsr adopted appointing a special committee of five, with full powers to Investigate tha whole subject of troubles in the Pennsylvania coal regions. This closed tbe days' business, and the bouse adjourned. Riddlobergar waa put decidedly out of humor In the senate by his failure to get a chance at tbe British lion on his resolution to amend the rules so that the proposed extradition treaty could be publicly considered. He asserted early in th« session that the resolution was entitled to precedence, but the chairman said no. Later Pngh claimed the floor to speak on the educational bill, but Riddleberger disputed his claim and tried to secure consideration of his resolution. The chair ruled against Riddleberger, and the latter appealed and protested indignantly against being suppressed. Tbe senate sustained the chair, Riddlebarger alone voting no. HOME MARKET TALK.

O'Neill of Pennsylvania declared that tbe first complaint on quo warranto ever heard in a state had boeu heard in the courts of Pennsylvania. Rayuer, continuing, quoted from the argument made by Mr. Gowen, counsel for the Reading railroad before the supreme court In tbe case of tbe Mate of Pennsylvania against the Reading Railroad company, in which be took the ground that the state bad no right to tax its freight, and that oon- greos alone could regulate its commerce. Now, said Rayner, when congress was seek- lijg to investigate its traffic, tbe company said that congress had not that power, be- canse It was a state corporation. • O'Neill of Pennsylvania — Does the gentleman know that any of these corporations are seeking to prevent this Investigation! Rayner — Yes, air. We have the evidence bera of 82,000 starving men, turned out in the dead> of winter with dependent families. [Applause.] :~ ' O'Noll— I did not ask as to that, I asked whether you knew that the R-adln:; Railroad company and the Philadelphia Coal and Iron company are seeking to prevent this investigation* I say, for one, they are not. ' ' Rayner— Then why not allow tbe investigation! Why not adopt the resolution! O'Neil— We will adopt It. [Applause.] Rayner — If you will adopt it, I am done. [Loud and long-continued call of "Vote," "Vote."] I wish to add but a' word," This reference to ths commerce commission amounts to nothing. You might as well refer it to the Chinese ejnbussy or to the public printer. You will "get If backrjmitiis toon. . [Loud laughter, and applause.] What is the use of • knocking at the door ot the commerce com mission! It never /takes np a casp mere rootu. ; You do not direct it to do anything— you' merely request ft By the time it investigates the question thrown will have, a.11 starved to death. Let as track the subject to the fountain head, and let us 41* cover-as I believe we will— that this ta a conspiracy of capital and not of labor, and let us apply the most heroic remedies legislation -can devise to break op these infernal systems, which, nnder the name of trusts, are shadowing tbe prosperooi homes and business centers of the country. White of Kaw York suggested an amendment extending the Inquiry into ths question as to whether there bas been any unlawful combination of large bodies of men to Inter* rupt the bun luces of the Reading Railroad company, and to deprive, it of freight destined for transportation to points ontttde of Pennsylvania, and, if such combination is found to exist, the committee be directed to report what legislation is necessary to prevent and {.finish, such combination la the future. • ' Brumm— I don't object to that I want a broad investigation. ' . Anderson of Kansas— I do; there IB too much- Wall street about ill •. After some delay the various propositions were consolidated into the following resolution, which was adopted without, division: Resolved,. That- a special committee ot five members be appointed to investigate forthwith tbe extent, causes and effect upoa InUir-stata commerce of the continued failure of .the Heading Ballroad company to transport such commerce, and to report to tha house, by bill or otherwise, for .consideration at any time, such legislation as U necessary to secure to the public the regular and* complete execution by a railroad company of Us obligations to serve as a ceiu- men carrier of lnter-stat« commewe, and to rn- ventlgato the difference* .existing to the Lehlgh and Bchuylklll region of rejuisytvoulo. between The Cent-a-Dny Pension Bill. WASHINGTON CITT, Feb. 2.— A ol«ose in Cameron's pension bill, introduced in tba senate Wednesday, to place on the pension rolls all officers and enlisted men who served in the army or nary between March 4, 1801, and Feb. 1, 1800, roads as follows: "That the rate of pension for mch service shall be at the rate per month of one c ent for each days' service rendered in the army, navy, or 'marine corps of the United States subsequent to the 4th day of March, 1861, and prior to the 1st day of February, Ibfld" The construction placed upon this clause Is that the pensioner shall receive each month one cent for each days service, or $3.05 per month, if he has served 303 days— or one year. John rarratt AncrU That the Duties Ar» Wh*r« Th«y Are Hecesflarr —Alt the Speakers Fiivor a.Cot on Internal Eteve- nnfi—Mrn. Oong»r Scores Blalhe and Wants To Be a Statesman. Bostoif, Feb. 2.— The first public meeting ever held in Boston In support of the principle of a protective tariff took place Wednesday evening at Tremaat Temple nnder the auspices ot th» Home Market olub. This dub, by the way, baa within a few months'developed into a large and influential organisation, Its methods and objects having been educational. It has distributed many thousand documents setting forth the doctrine of protection, and Its membership ot about 800 Is rapidly growing. Gen. W. K. Draper presided at the meeting, and the principal speakers were J. W. Jarrett, ot Pittsburg 1 , and Col A. B. Colyer, ot Nashville. Gen. Draper, after discussing the general principles ttf protection, said: "This surplus does not trouble ma as it dom many people. It seems to me a favorable comment on our prosent revenue system that we are troubled to dispose of a surplus, while all other nations are troubled to make up deficits. [Applause.] Granting the necessity pt reducing our revenue, however, we have a remedy in the reduction or abolition of internal revenue taxes. To break down Industries for the sake of reducing our surplus appears tp me much as it would for a private citizen who thought he was accumulating too rapidly to cut off a finger or two so that he might produce less. [Laughter.] The Internal revenue tax is a tar that was made necessary by the exigencies of the war, and if the money is not required nnder present conditions wa can safely abolish it" Colonel Colyer was given a warm welcome. He discussed the tariff question In the south chiefly, and summed up his view of the situation thus: "I think the people are beginning to appreciate the need ot protection, and that the sentiment in tbatdlrection b rapidly growing. Henry W&tterson won't believe it, but it is true, nevertheless, though they cling to the old Idea in Kentucky, largely through bis influence. .They are coming to see things in their true light, however, or why should a majority of 80,000 a few years ago be reduced to 10,000 last SOUTHERN COTTON MILLS. EUtmarkable Progrnts in the BTanafMtare During tlie Past Seven Yrara. Md., Feb. 2.—The Manufacturers' Record<has compiled through dl- root reports a list of every cotton mill In the south, giving the name and location of each, and the namber of spindles and looms in each. By this table It is shown that Alabama has 20- mills; Arkansis, 8; Florid", 1: Georgia, &8; Kentucky, 6; Louisiana, 6; Maryland, 20; Mississippi, 10; North Carolina and South Carolina, 84; Tennessee, 31; Texas, 8; Virginia, 18. The totalsnre: mills, 294; «plndlo«, 1,495,145; looms, 84,01*, and the figures show an increase of over JOO per cent, in the spindlef and looms since J880. The mills now under construction, and those for which the money bas been secured and upon which work will shortly be commenced, and. ths addition to the plants of old mills, will require, as shown by the reports, 1M3.UOO spindles and 4,800 looms, 'llras by the end of 18«8 the south will have in operation about 1,730,000 splndIBS and »8,iJOO looms. The Increase of over 100 per cent in spindles and looms is especially noticeable when It Is remembered that the increase In the balance of the country during the same time was only 20 percent The reports, from the southern cotton mills show that the aggregate value of the product In 1837 was $43,000,000, against $31,000,000 in 1880.

Furooll, of northern Dakota, opposed tbe admission. yeSE The people want protection aud must have It." Mr. Jarrett sharply criticised President Cleveland's tariff views as expressed in bis message. He said: "The president talks of reducing the tariff juit as If It were the only tax that burdens the American people, when we have an Internal revenue tax about which he had not a word to say. He talks about reducing the tariff duties without reducing the wages of the worklngman. I make this open declaration: that with one exception I don't know of any article to-day on the protected list—1 don't know of one article pro- dmed on a large scale in the United States where a reduction of the tariff would not mean suffering on the part of labor. I say this as a representative labor man, and I defy him or any other person to come forward and prore that It can be done. The word . 'free' is misleading. It cannot be used In connection with" trade la its absolute sense. Thure must be some restraint, some restriction, even if it is accord- Ing to tbe natural law ot trade. Hence it is not free trade. They say It would baa blessed thing If raw materials are placed on the free list That would reduce tho 'surplus,' as they term it, about $12,000,000. They want to reduce it $100,000,000 a year. It they place all manufactured articles on the free list it will only reduce tha surplus $90,000,000. That is not enough. If they really want to reduce the surplus why don't they talk about reducing the internal revenue taxes as well as the tarfff I It Is .very , plain that these people who are advocating reduction of tariff duty are simply coming to the front as advocates of free-trade. 1 ' Mrs. Cougar Has Ambitions. ELOra, lit, Feb. ».—At the equal-suffrage convention Tuenlay evening Mrs. Gougar soured Elaine for saying that the silent Influence of women was more powerful than their vote. She asked that men pray and let women vote and see which would be more powerful Bhe struck at social evils and said she wanted to go to congress or the leg- islatnra. One of the first laws she would help make would be to prohibit employing any pers-m under 14 years In a factory.

Over six miles of teams were In line, representing every Industry that can be shown by the .capital city. The procession started about 3 o'clock, and by 4 p. m.

KAHSAS Crrr, M<x, Feb. 2.— All Is not well in Argonla, Kan. When Mrs. Sally Baiter was elected mayor of the town last Spring it was gen. erally understood that It was the result of a combination formed for the purpose of giving the town pure government The true inwardness of the situation can be better understood from the following Interview with W. P. Ward, the former marshal of the town. Ward lays MAtoa BAirxit he Is now a wanderer on the fare of the earth, and attributes his troubles to the domination ot woman In his old home. Ward came here a few weeks ago In order to have rxim to swear, so hi says, and when asked how he liked the mayor of Argonla a look of Intense disgust came over his features as he replied: "Female mayors, are no good. Why, Mrs. Baiter bas just killed Argonla. I used M have a hotel there and was city marshal, but I couldn't stand It, so I just scooted, and I expect that I am to blame for her election, too. You know she was not nominated in any of the conventions. 'About 0 o'clock on election day all us boys were feeling gay, and agreed to meet at a hall and nominate a candidate to knock oat Wilson. Jack Ducker —he's the tougbert man in the place and the undertaker—got up in the meeting and nominated Mrs. Susannah Medora Baiter for mayor, and the nomination was made unanimous. We rushed Into the streeta, and commenced to work for our candidate. At noon her husband came to us, and begged us to quit the racket, saying that It was an insult to his wife. We wouldn't do It, and then the voters commenced to come our way in cluster*. We got full of whisky and enthusiasm, and at 4 o'clock every one was voting' for our candidate. Well, yon know she was elected. We had a jollification, and when she took her seat like a roan all our fun was busted. I sent up to Kansas City for some crabapple cider, just to pleas* the boys. She beard of it, and asked me to stop it Yon can't fight a woman and sbe the mayor. Then I started a little poker room, more for sociability than anything else. Chips were only 10 cents. Sbe heard-of it came to me, and I had to stop it Then the druggist before sbe was elected nsed to keep Blue Grass bitters, lemon, rye, extract of malt, and a few other things like that He don't dolt now. The mayor heard of it Then the two billiard rooms were running. They are closed up now. The mayor don't think it fashionable to push the Ivories. That's the I just couldn't stand the town, so I came up bore." DON'T BLAME a man for groaning when he bus Rheumatism cr Neuralgia. The pain is simply awful. No tortnrc in the ancient times was more painful than these twin diseases.
