The Cause of Civil Service Re
form in Danger.
THE APPROPRIATION CUT OUT
The Senate Restores Some McKinley
Duties-No Witnesses Before the
Washington, May 22. The question
of civil service reform was given full
sway in the house today, the occasion
being an amendment to strike out the
paragraph In the legislative appropria
tion bill providing for the civil service
commission. The amendment was
adopted by a vote of 109 to 71, amid
great Democratic applause and Repub
licun cries of "Spoils." Several Demo
crats opposed the amendment virtually
abolishing the commission, but It was
adopted by a nearly strict party vote.
Among the Democrats who voted with
the Republicans in favor of civil ser
vice reform were Wilson, Tracey, Hen-di-lx,
Dockery, Warner, Springer, Bay
ers, CrnJn, .'Martin. Kilgore, Living
stone, Deforrest and Everett. The vote
on division was 9ti to Gl. Cries of "No
quorum" and demands for tellers were
made. The vote by tellers being 109 to
71. Dingley gave notice that he would
demand the yeas and nays in the house.
It then being after 5 o'clock the com
mittee rose and the house adjourned.
Washington, May 23.The senate dis
posed of seven paragraphs of the metal
schedule today, after elshf. hours of de
bate. The sensational feature of the
day rW caused by the unexpected pre
sentation by Jones of an amendment
snhKiitiitJnir the McKinley bill claaslfl
catloh and specific rates on round Iron
In colls, blown and charcoal Iron, some
what higher than those already pro
pos3d. This amenumeot was a surprise
to some senators on both sides, al
though evidently anticipated by Quay
nnrl a. fW other of his colleagues. . Hale
tried to use it as a "text for taunting
the Democrats, and Teller read his
very plain lecture on the duty of Re
publicans to accept such Increase as
Democrats were willing to grant with'
out continually chiding their adver-
nnrlpa with inconsistency. When tne
vote was taken seven Democrats and
two Populists refused to support the
Jones substitute, viz.: Allen, Berry,
Blackburn. Jarvis. Kyle, Mills, Pascoe
and Peffer. Among rates fixed today
were the following:
Iron ore, 40 cents per ton; pig Iron,
scrap iron, etc, $4 per ton.
THE BRIB8RY INVESTIGATION.
The Committee Ready, But No Wit
Washington, May 22. C. W. . Buttz,
who was anxious to be heard before the
bribery Investigation, was not on hand
today. Instead he sent his attorney to
explain he was otherwise engaged, and
asked to be excused from attendance
for the present. On being questioned by
the committee as to Buttz' reason for
his conduct, Attrney McGowan stated
that his. client was engaged in making
a search for a witness wno couia cor
roborate his statements and throw light
upon the question at issue. The expla
nation was far from satisfactory, and
Mr. McGowan was Informed Buttz was
the man wanted, and not. a substitute.
Accordingly they called the sergeant-
at-arms to their assistance and direct
ed that a subpoena be Issued for Buttz.
While waiting the committee csHcd in
several senators, Including Vnnrhees,
Harris and Coke, to whom Senators
Hunton and Kyle had stated that they
had given Information of approach"
made to themselves after ButM made
propositions to them. They confirmed
the statements of Hunion and Kyle
and when asked If they knew of other
attempts to bribe senators, Voorhees,
Harris and Coke said they did not. The
sergeant-at-arms reported to the com
mittee at 1 o'clock that he had failed
to find Butte. He, however, had ascer
tained that Buttz had left the city on
an early train, with the expectation of
returning at 2. BuWz did not appear.

The Distinguished Prelate Discusses
Labor and Capital,
The following are some of the noble
and patriotic, utterances of Bishop Ire
land, In his recent address to the loco
motive engineers, at St. Paul:
When asked where I stand whether
with capital or with labor I answer
quickly: I stand with Justice and right
eousness, and consequently, I stand
with capital for the sake of labor, and
with labor for the sake of capital.
Tha great thinker of the age, Leo
XIII, who loves to be called the pon
tiff of the worklngmen, writes: "The
sad mistake that is made is to possess
oneself of the idea that class is hos
tile to class; that rich and poor are in
tended by nature to live at war with
one another. So Irrational and so false
Is this view that the exact contrary Is
the truth. One requires the other-
capital cannot do without labor, nor
labor without capital. Mutuul agree
ments result in pleasantness and good
order; perpetual conflict " necessarily
produces confusion and outrage. The
Interests of capital and labor are In
tertwlned and Interdependent the one
draws Its power of life from the other,
the one perishes with the other. A most
considerable guardianship of the Inter
ests and energies of the one Bhould be
the earnest occupation of the other.
The Interests and lights of labor. Of
ten have I pleaded for them and loving
ly do I plead for thein no. I hate that
view of labor which makes it a mechan
ical force, like unto the rotation of a
railroad or a turbine, purchasable at
mere market value. I see at all times
the living generator of labor the man,
my own brother, and the child of the
supreme God, and in availing myself
of human labor, I must keep well In
mind the dignity and rights of the man.
I must have before my eyes the man,
and the circle of the life into which
man has a ' divine right to expand
himself the family; and 1 demand for
the laliurer and his family, so far as
through Just and rational measures we
can reach thereto, the means of decent
livelihood, the opportunities to develop
Intellect, to care for bodily health and
moral and religious growth, to receive
a due proportion of the Joys of human
existence,1 In recompense of the Ills
which, whatever may be done, will not
fall to press upon them, nor is it solely
for their own sokes that I desire and
seek their prosperity and the prosper
ity of the tolling millions. , The fruit-
fulness and the blessedness of capital
the grandeur and strength of the na
tion, are linked with labor, and rise
and fall with social conditions. In
telllgence, bodily vigor, contentment of
the heart in the worklngman add a
hundred fold to the productiveness of
capital, which at the same time is
put to Its highest use and serves beBt
Its divine purpose when it Is so em
ployed as to lift fellowment upward
in the scale of mental and social life.
It has veen my pride, aa an American
citizen, that In no other country Is the
worklngman srt well situated in the en
joyment of social advancement for him
self and his children as in our own
United States. Nowhere else is labor bo
respected and so remunerative; nc
where else are the possibilities In any
approaching measure bo large that the
laborer of today may be the employer
of tomorrow, and In those social condi
tions of the masses do I perceive more
than In aught else the true grandeur
and the true strength of the republic of
Let me now enter my brief plea for
capital. At once you will unite with me
In extending over it the shield which
covers property, whether this the ex
tensive Investment of the rich, or the
circumscribed possessions of the poor.
Property Ib the very foundation stone
of the social fabric; It Is the Incentive
and reward of Industry and energy. The
Indian tribes have slight regard for
property; what Is owned by one may be
used and controlled by all; the Indian
tribes remain bands of savage Idlers.
He who menaces property Is an anar
chist, and the anarchist Is the oNadly
fic of order, or right, of society. He Is
the wild beast solely lont on destruc
tion, from which security and civiliza
tion never run drift.
Labor Is In almolute need of the co
operation cf napital. To what purpose
is your museulur strength unless cap
ital Is iiIkIi to reward It? Without cap
ital, be there millions of willing work
lngmen, factory doors remain closed,
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
fields are untllled, .mines hold their
treasures in concealment, no hlp
plough the seas, no railroads span con
tinents. Without capital labor is a la
tent, unproductive energy. Why, today,
are there among us legions of un
employed? Because capital hies away
from us. It Is an easy matter in club
room and on public square to discuss
capital and its obligations and to mark
out the channels through which it
should flow In order to reach our own
hands. As .a- matter of fact, capital
emerges into public light or hides Itself
In vaults, at its own good pleasure. We
must woo It with winning words and
acts. It is timid of its life. Make It in
secure; It will shun you, and leave you
to beat the air with your idle arms. The
laws of the financial world are as In
flexible as those of the four seasons of
the year; the state or the country In
which through mob-riots or oppressive
legislative statutes, property is endan
gered" or made unproductive, will be
surely abandoned to their own setrlle
resources. The outcry against capital is
occasionally ludicrous If it were not dis
tressing In Its possible consequences.
"We will not," said an acquaintance of
mine lately, "toll to pay interest to
foreigners holding bonds and stocks of
American Industries and railroads."
Very well; but, these foreigners will not
send over their money to build up your
factories, and construct your railroads,
In which case you will pay to them in
deed no Interest, but neither will you
earn bread for yourselves. What la
needed often, In all our controversies,
Is common sense, in presence of which
a hundred wild theories melt away and
a hundred complications find quick so
lution. America has been for capital and for
labor the paradise of nations. Our pros
perity has been unparallrled. Our nat
ural resources aro rich and varied. Our
civil institutions encourage Industry
and self-reliance. Let us put to profit
our advantages, and be always what
Providence has Intended us the first
and best of countries. This we shall do
by a supreme loyalty on the part of all,.
citizen? to rights and duties. It would
require but a short Journey along the
