RAILROAD LAND GRANTS.
THE COMPANIES REPLY TO SECRE
A Claim That It Is Not in His Power
to Decla/e Forfeited the Holdings of
the Roads -A Resume of the Chief
Washington, June 27.—The Secretary
of the Interior has received answers from
all of the land grant railroads named in
his rule dated May 33, 1887, requiring them
to show cause on or before June 37, 1887,
why several orders of withdrawal from
settlement of lands within their indemnity
limits should not bo revoked and the lands
embraced therein restored to settlement.
The St. Paul and Sioux City Railroad Com
pany in its answer takes the position that it
is beyond the power and jurisdiction of the
Secretary of the Interior, as the law stands,
to restore to settlement any lands within
the indemnity limits of that’company, cer
tainly not until the grant shall have first
been finally adjusted.
It holds that so far as indemnity lands
are concerned the acts of 1857,1864 and 1865,
being in pari materia, the last two amenda
tory of an earlier grant, and all operating
upon precisely the same subject matter, that
is to say upon the same selection of indem
nity lands, stand and must be construed to
getner as one enactment and into that
enactment in its entirety is incorporated the
prov'ison which Congress sa w fit to enact in
the seventh section of the act of March 3,
1865, viz: the direction to the Secretary of
the Interior to withdraw from market the
lands embraced by the provision of the act,
and hence it follows that the withdrawal .of
all indemnity lands lying within twenty
miles of the line of road was legislative
withdrawal; that when the Secretary of the
Interior issued the necessary executive ad
ministration order to carry that withdrawal
into effect, he exhausted all the powers of
the land department over the subject mat
IN THE HANDS OF CONGRESS.
It is also held that as the public lands of
the United States are disposable uuder the
direction of Congress, it requires legislation
by that body before its enactments dedi
cating the lands in question to this particu
lar purpose, can be repealed, modified or set
aside; and that Congress, not having re
pealed its legislation with respect to the
grant, any attempt on the part of an execu
tive officer, by way of revocation of the
act of his predecessor, is in direct, opposi
tion to the expressed direction of Congress.
The replies of all the other roads are of the
same general tenor as the above, most of
them setting up the additional claim that
indemnity grants are not confined to locali
ties opposite any given portion of a road,
but that any deficiency in one locality may
be made up by the road in another locality
whore available lands exist.

Manhattan Takes Another Tumble,
But Partly Recovers.
New York, June 37.—At 10:25 o’clock
this morning the feeling in the stock mar
ket was very uneasy, and parties long of
stocK had made the loan crowd the biggest
in the room, all hands being anxious to
renew their loans. Manhattan opened at
7 per cent, lower than Saturday’s close at
130 and rallied 3 per cent., but fell back
again to the opening figure on small sales.
News from London of a weak market and
high rates for money there exercised a
depressing influence and prices all around
were effected by it. London was not
trading either way in the market, and the
liear pool were trying to break prices in
stocks where there were no signs of support.
UNSETTLED AND FEVERISH.
At 11:15 o’clock the market was unsettled
and feverish owing to reports that some
large interest was unloading stocks. There
were many heavy outside buying orders,
principally from Boston; but as'soon as they
effected a rally, selling orders seemed to be
rushed in and forced the market to recede.
Meeker, Welders & Cos., were heavy
buyers of Reading, and forced it up to 51,
but Moore & Schley, and other brokers for
insiders, were believed to be selling. A
report was current that the break in Man
hattan was due to the dissolution of the
pool formed by Jay Gould, Russell Sane
and Cyrus W. Field, representing 150,000
shares of that stock.
Each member was said to have taken up
50,000 shares and support for their joint
account was withdrawn. Judge Ingra
ham’s decision was also thought to have
been discounted by some of the holders of
the stock, and some attribute the weak
opening of Manhattan this morning to it.
Pacific Mail and New England were spe
cially weak, and seemed to be made the ob
ject for a bear attack.
Money was scarce in the loan crowd, and
10 per cent, being paid on good security.

riving here to-day give the following par
ticulars of the affair: Yesterday evening a
negro man living in the vicinity of Oak

of their number, G. IV. Higginbotham, was
instantly killed and Constables John Con

wounded. During the melee which followed
Jerry Baldwin and one of his sons and four
other negroes were killed. Great excite

AN INFORMER AT CHICAGO.
Contractor Bipper Believed to Have
Turned State’s Evidence.
Chicago, June 27.—The big “boodle”
cases came up this morning before Judge
Tuley, and by request of the defense, a
change of venue to Judge Jamison’s court
was granted. When the attorneys went
before Judge Jamison, the defense demanded
trial at once upon all the remaining con
spiracy cases. The court refused, and said
that onlv case 1,038, which was then before
him, would be heard. A bill of particulars
was at once presented by District Attorney
Grinnell, and the attorneys for the defense
obtained a continuance until to-morrow
morning to have time to look it over.
The announcement by Mr. Grinnell this
morning that F. W. Bipper, the meat con
tractor, will not be tried with the other de
fendants in the big boodle indietment is the
first intimation he has allowed to be given,
that Bipper has turned State’s evidence.
He was given an opportunity to give his
testimony very early in the investigation
but for a long time he resolutely insisted
that he knew of no wrong doing and there
fore had no evidence to give. Bipper was
one of the oldest contractors doing business
with the county. Years ago, when he got his
first contract, be had only one little meat
shop near Twenty-second street on State,
but year by year, as his county bills grew
larger, his shop grew also,and now his mar
ket is one of the finest in the city.

IN THE COURT ROOM.
Mr. Parsons Delivers the Opening
Address for the Defense—The Exam

derman Fullgraff’s Presence Makes
the District Attorney Apprehensive.
New York, June 27.— Jacob Sharp tot
tered into court this morning looking
wearied and worn, with hardly a vestige of
color in his wrinkled and woe-begone face.
The reason for this was that he had passed a
terrible night, not even getting as much
sleep as was his lot Saturday night. Mrs.
Sharp, who had been privileged to remain
with him, had been assiduous in her atten
tions to her sick husband, and had not rested
one minute during the entire night. With
the beginning of the reading by Mr. Nicoll
of his testimony before the Senate investi
gating committee he opened his lustreless
eyes and attempted to interest himself in the

FULLGRAFF IN COURT.
Ex-Alderman Fullgraff came into court
and had a short private conference with
Peter Mitchell of the counsel tor the de
fense. He then turned out. closely followed
by tho District Attorney, who' acted as
though he was fearful that the State's best
witness was going to turn traitor and that
he must do something to prevent it.
A ten minutes rest was taken after the
prosecution closed, after which Mr. Parsons
arose and commenced the opening address
in behalf of the defense.
TWO FRUITLESS MOTIONS.
Mr. Parsons said that the duty had fallen
upon him to open for the defense, but before
he proceeded to do so he had two motions to
make that he desired to appear on the rec
ords ; first, to ask the prosecution to elect
whether it would stand upon that part of
the indictment charging an agreement to
bribe Alderman Fullgraff, or upon that part
alleging that he was iri fact bribed by Mr.
Sharp. The motion was denied. The sec
ond motion was that the court advise the
jury to acquit the defendant, as the case
now stands, under section 410 of the Code of
Criminal Procedure, and this motion was
also denied and an exception taken.
Mr. Parsons spoke five hours, not in
cluding the time taken for recess. He con
cluded with an appeal to the jury not to lie
influenced by anything but the evidence in
determining their verdict. During the hiter
mission after Mr. Pai-sons’ address Dr.
Loomis examined Sharp in one of the ante
rooms. He pronounced Sharp a very sick
jinan. The taking of testimony for tiie de
fense then began.
CHICAGO’S ROAST PORK.
The Firemen Still Playing on the Burn
Chicago, June 27.— 0f the firemen in
jured at yesterday’s blaze at the stock
yards, one died last night and four more
are in a precarious condition, being injured
intei nally and having broken lunDs. At 1
o’clock this morning the flames broke out
afresh about the chill rooms of what is
known as the “hutch house.” Under the
south chill rooms 2,000,(XX) pouuds of prime
pork were pickling in vats. The contents
of the chill room and vat are -alued
at from $:>00,000 to $350,000. A shaky wall
was all that separated this from the flames
and the firemen had to work harder than at
any time during tho progress of the lire to
prevent their burning. At 3 o’clock the
end was still in a lurid glare, but the danger
of the north wall falling was passed. Ten
streams were directed at the burning mass.
It will require constant work for forty
eight hours to thoroughly extinguish the
fire in the pork, the firemen all being
relieved by the reserves.
The insurance on tho propertv destroyed
by the fire foots up $807,750. Most of the
policies were for $3,500 apiece, and the list
would include nearly every insurance com

basement, where a quantity of varnish ig
nited from a match struck by the colored
porter. Before the fire could be checked, it
had gutted the entire building. Tho loss
will be about $3,000 on the building, which
was not insured, and $5,000 on Berry &

2,000 MADE HOMELESS.
Milwaukee, Wig., Juno 27.—Fire almost
swept the town of Marshfield out of exist
ence this afternoon and 2,000 people are
homeless. The loan is not less than $1,000,-
000. A locomotive spark started a blaze at
noon in the lumber yard of the Upham
furniture factory nnd it rapidly developed
into a roaring tire that spread toward the
town. Insufficient protection facilities pre
vented any resistance to the flames and soon
several flourishing factories, business blocks
along Main Street and adjoining
residences were wrapped in flames. The
people gathered such household goods as
they could and fled to the woods. The heat
was so intense that 2,500 feet of the Wis
consin Central track, which runs through
one end of the town, was bent and twisted.
Travel cannot be renamed on this account
Special trains from Stevens’ Point and
Chippewa Falls conveyed fire engines to the
place, but the fire was beyond all control.
But one store and a few half burned houses
remain of the flourishing town. Many
people were transferred by the special
trains to neighboring towns, and others
camped on the outskirts of the town.
Among the buildings destroyed were a
woodenwara factory, grist, mill, saw mill,
and ihe factory of the Upham Manufactur
ing Company, tho Tremont and several
minor hotels, warehouses along the Wiscon
sin Central railroad, its depot, four churches
and the business centre. The insurance is
less than one-fifth of the loss.
Bosses Resort to Hot Water to Drive
Rochester, N. Y., June 27,—The ma
sons’ helpers and laborers employed on the
sewers and street improvements struck this
morning for $1 75 per day of nine hours
work. The strike was ordered by tho local
assemblies. In two or three instances non
union men employed by the contractors on
street works were driven away by strikers.
The union men conifrisn less than one
third of the total nuntbepbf laborers. At one
of the sections visited by strikers they were
warned away but persisted in threatening
the men who continued to work. After
vy anting had failed of effect, hot water was
turned upon the intruders from the boiler
of the hoisting engine. This drove them
away. More trouble is anticipated and po
lice precautions are being taken.

mob began stoning the officers, who
finding their clubs useless opened Are with
their revolvers, finally clearing the street.
The fight, lasted only ten minutes, but dur
ing that time policemen Moran, Burns and
Farmer were severely injured by stones.
Three of the strikers were badly clubbed
and were arrested. One man was shot
through the upper part, of the head. This
evening it was learned that t.wo others had
been shot, but hail been carried away by
their friends. One of these is reported to
have died to-night. The city is quiet, hut
more trouble is feared to-morrow, as the
rioters are more or less intoxicated.
COKE REGION STRIKERS.
The Employers Bound to Protect the
Men Who will Work.
Pittsburg, June 2f,— The coke manufac

ployed any of Pinkerton’s men to work in
the coke regions. They held a meeting, but
they claimed it was merely for the purpose
of conferring about the condition of the
trade and affairs in the region. They say
they expect to secure a general resumption
at the old scale in a short time. There is no
doubt, notwithstanding the denials, that ar
rangements are being perfected for the em

property. When this is organized they
claim they can secure all tho men they de
sire to resume work.

A special’from Uniontown says: “At a
meeting of the strikers at. the Fair Chance
Furnace this afternoon 110 out of 144 voted
to resume work at the old wages.” There
are about 150 ovens at these works, and the
break is considered an important one. It
is estimated that the employers and em
ployez have lost $750,000 in profits and
wages since the strike was inaugurated
three months ago. At present about one
third of tho ovens in the region are in oper

honor of the Queen's jubilee. I’rinco Albert
Victor and Prince George of Wales, accom

Business is conducted as usual, and Dublin
does not seem to bo taking much of a holi
day over tho arrival of the Princes, There
is, however, a sufficient display of bunting
in the street and of bustle among the loyal

in the event. The weather is brilliant.
THE ARRIVAL AT KINGSTOWN.
A military escort, and a number of crown
officials and prominent people went to Kings
town to await, the arrival of the Princes.
Several steamers went down the Bay to
meet and escort the royal boat. The Princes
arrived at Kingstown at. t he appointed time,
and were received with great enthusiasm.
The Marquis of Londonderry, the Irish
Viceroy, met them, nnd the town Commis

the journey of the princes through the
streets of Dublin there was much cheering
by tho crowds,' some cries of “coercion,”
and occasional cheering for Parnell.

Mr. Smith announced in the House of
Commons this evening that the government
intended to proceed with the crime’s bill
until it passed the report stage.
Mr. Robertson, Liberal, moved that anew
clause be added to the bill, providing that
the act could be repealed by an order in
council. This, he said, would prevent the
House of Lords from keeping the act on the
statute book in deflanee, possibly, of the
wishes of the House of Commons.
Mr. Balfour, Chief Secretary for Ireland,
opposed the new clause urging that control
or the House of Commons was earefully pre
served in the bill, and that any ministry
could prevent, its operation.
Tho proposed clause was rejected.
DURATION OF THE ACT.
Mr. Morley moved that the duration of
the set be limited to three years. It was
tlie first time, lie said, that any government
had the shameful courage to propose per
petual coercion in any exceptional mutila
tion of civil rights, particularly in so grave
and serious mutilation as the present bill
contemplated. The government ought to
be compelled from time tojtime, at tolerably
short intervals, to examine whether circum
stances still justified the existence of such
exceptional legislation. This was the first
government that, cast to the winds tlie old
fashioned regard for liberty of subject and
the doctrine that exceptional legislation
should not last one day longer than circum
The bill turned into offences acts which
were not now considered offence. He quoted
returns of agrarian crime and urged that
the figures sTiowed that there was the
smallest possible necessity for tho bill.
Kir R. K. Webster, Attorney General, op
posed Mr. Morley’s motion. He said that
although it was true that previous bills were
of restricted duration no iirevious measure
has contained tho sain ’safeguards and same
power of Parliamentai y rr 'ision as were
embraced in the present bill. There ha<l
been working in Ireland forces closely con
nected with tlie murder of the woi*t char
acter. Those forces had been supported, not
by the internal resources of Ireland, but by
large contributions of monoy from another
country. The government must retain tlie
jwwer of judging when these forces were at
GLADSTONE URGES LIMITATION.
Mr. Gladstone urged that the special
character of the bill was a reason for limit
ing Its duration. Its enactment as a j>er
manent measure would aggravate the exist
ing evils and intensify that alienation ami
estrangement from the law, wherein lay the
fundamental evil of Irelands social condi
tion. A list of precedents unusually long
and authoritative Justified the opposition to
limit bills of a general character, which
placed the legislative power in the hands of
the executive The invariable rule had
been to limit the duration of such laws.
The present bill created new crimes and the
government was handing over the people’s
right* to bo dealt, with silently and secretly

that temporary hills were fallacious. Ex

Sir Wilfrid Lawson, Radical, supporting
the amendment, said it was an honor to
America to send money to those who were
fighting for the freedom of Ireland.
Mr. Chance, Nationalist, moved that a
new clause be adder! providing that pro
ceedings in certain criminal trials be re
ported by shorthand writing.
Mr. Holmes, Attorney General for Ire
land, opposed the motion, which was re
jected by a vote of 126 to 185.
TO BE CLOSED THURSDAY.
London, June as, 5 a. m. —The govern
ment has decided to close the report stage
of the Crimes bill Thursday and to ask the
House to proceed wit h the'bill daily until it
passes its third reading. The Jsind bill will
come up in the House of Commons Monday.
In the debate last night Mr. Chance
moved several new clauses (o the Crimes
bill dealing with legal procedure, all of
which were rejected by large majorities.
The IktUy ,\V ws says this morning that
the waste of time on some of Mr. Chance’s
proposals was unreasonable, while others of
his proposals might be usefully debated in
the form of a separate bill which, however,
the government could not be expected to
Justin McCarthy writes that there is not

and all hope soon to see Mr. Parnell restored
to perfect health.
