Viknna, Nov. 20. When the presi

ralh, Dr. Abrnhamovlcs, unpenned this
morning (here wns a chorus of "Shoino
upon yon" from the jjcftlftts, nccom
panted by u deafening nolso of whis

of'tno Leftists gathered In front of
the president's platform, shouting nnd
blowing tin triimrM:ts and flutes, while
the president wns rttifrhiff his bell for
order. TIiIh scene lasted about n quar
ter of an hour, during which time the
president rctnnlncd senlcd. Than ho
suspended the sitting.
Aft President Abrnhamovlcs wns
leaving tho house a number of Left
ists pelted him with paper balls.
Thereupon tho president returned and
ntood unmoved as the houso win filled
with tlio noise caused by trumpet
blowing, hand clapping and other dis
turbances upon tho part ot the dis
turbers. After walling ten minutes
and tho nprour continuing tho presi

absence tho nolso was not nbntcd.
Dr. Wolff, tho Carman Nntlonultst
leader, and one of tho suspended
members of tho house, entered about
that time, but was forcibly ejected by
tho police, to which he offered n vio
lent resilience. According to ono ac
count he had to be gngi;ed nnd was
nftorwards bundled into a cab and
taken to a police station.
At 1U:40 o'clock tho vice president

ACCUSES MRS. NACK.
Thorn fropoiei to Trillfy That tbe
Woman Committed tlin Murder.
New Yonrt, Nov. 20. In a signed
abatement this afternoon Martin
Thorn, tho barber now ou trial for the
murder of William Guldcnsuppo, de
clares that ho will testify Monday in
Ms own behalf. Ho calls himself the
dope of an "unworthy woman;"
charges Augusta Nack with planning
and carrying out tho murder; declares
tnat when lie wont to tho Woodsido
cottage tho day of the crime, Mrs.
Nack had already shot and stabbed
Gnldcnsuppe and until ho arrived
there ho did not know thnt murder
bad been planned; that she
bad forced him to nssist her,
.he cutting up tho body, using
knlfo and saw whllo ho held tho body;
that she arrangod for tho disposition
of the pieces. That sho burned the
clothes, no denies that ho told Gotha,
the barber, that ho killed Gulden
nappe, but Bays that ho declared to
Gotha that Mrs. Nack did the deed,
lie acknowledges that ho said that ho
would kill (iuldonaunpo before ho
would let him kill him?
, In closing Thorn says: "Mrs. Nack
told the jury that I had committed
tbe murder In just the way sho actu
ally did t herself. Kho turned every
thing around. Sho reversed tho whole
ntory, accusing we of just what bIio
did. Kho is afraid to go on tho stand.
Uer lawyers will not let her testify
gainst me, because they know I can
provo her a liar can prove that alio
herself killed Guldensuppe becauso ho
knew ot other crimes sho had com
mitted, and because sho wns afraid
that Guldcnsuppo would kill her for
having hud anything to do with me.
I can ask that woman questions that
ho cannot answer without showing
conclusively thnt sho has Bworn to
lies, nnd, what Is more, I have wit
nesses to corroborate iuc."

TiOViHViM.Kt Ky., Nov. 20. Milton
II. Smith, president of the Louisville
fc Nnshvlllo rnllrond, snld to-day of
pending rnllrond legislation by Con
gress: "As to scalping, that is largely
n moral question nnd nn Immoral prac
tice, which tho law, ns It stands,
hhotiM suppress nud tho railroads
must suppress. As to tho pooling pro
visions proposed, they uro not of suf
ficient importance to require much
nttcntiou from railroad malingers.
Pooling will not bo obligatory, and
pooling rates have to be approved by
tho Interstate commorco commission.
Tlio whole thing Is delusive. I should
like to sny the proposition is intended
to decetvu tho public nud the railroads
as to tho revolutionary character of
tho proposed legislation. I used the
word revolutionary advisedly, and tho
movement Is one which should nruusn
public attention nud secure not public
approval, but public condemnation.
".Much misinformation has been cir
culated concerning the effect of recent
judicial decisions concerning the In
terstate commerce commission. Tho
public has been Informed officially
that these decisions have 'emasculated
tho commission,' that they havo de
stroyed its usefulness, that It has been
deprived of power conferred by Con
gress to fix rates nnd thnt tho power
thus taken away must bo conferred
by congress in tho lnugunge not sub
ject to misinterpretation. There is
evidently nn organized movement
directed by shrewd nnd Interested men
to confuse tho whole matter. Kvcry
assumption Is fnlso. The commission
has been doprlvcd of no power ever
given it by congress; all the useful
ness It ever possessed, It possesses to
day. All thnt the courts havo done
has been to check n tendency of or
gnnlzod political ugcnclcs to extend
their power in new fields. Tho public
should no longer bo deceived. The
purposo of proposed legislation Is not
to restore to tho commission something
It has lost, but to give it some
thing It has never pojscsscd some
thing It could not use safely nud some
thing thnt nover should bo given It
"1 wish to stato tho fuels with nil
tho emphnsis of which I am capable.
Tho proposed changes nrc radical and
revolutionary, affecting not simply
the railroad?;, but the whole character
of the government. Jt Is not possible
for one commission to fix rates, settle
the innumerable controversies dally
arising between lines, between ship
pers, between cities. Such a power
should not exist anywhere to-day. To
giro It to a single eommlsslou or to
endow it with on Influence over tho
lives, the prosperity and tho futures
of the prlvato citizens no govermont
here, and few governments nbroad,
hne ever tried to nssumn In
times of pence. Yet this feature of
tho proposed bill Is Ignored In all pub
Ho discussions. We hoar much of
pooling nnd sculping; wo hear nothing
ot this other scheme, stalking into
Congress, behind the pooling unci nnti
scalping measures, claiming tho ap
proval of tho public upon palpably
fnlso pretenses. These fnlso pretenses
Bhould bo nt ouco exposed and tho
people should not bo kept In ignorance
of tho effect of such a revolutionary
measure upon tho whole character of

Tlio suit brought by Holt county
ngniust the bondsmen of llnrrett Scott
has been appealed to tho supreme court,
and on account to its similarity to the
Hartley bond suit, nnd tho bearing it
will havo on that case, Is commanding
considerable attention. On thlsnccount
the court requested Attorney-General
Smyth to prepare tho brief for the
county, and tho printed copies of thnt
document havo just been tiled. In
hummiugup his argument, the attorney
general calls attention to theso facts:
"Scott accepted h:s commission, filed
his oath and delivered his bond within
time. Did everything ho could to
qualify under his now tenure. Ho
claimed ns tho duly elected oflleer and
tho county admitted his claim and per
mitted him, ns tho olllccr which he
claimed to be, to remain In possession
of tho county's money. Ho received
the salnry of treasurer nnd enjoyed nil
of Its emoluments.'1 These reasons are
given why tho bondsmen aro now
estopped from pleading irregularity
in the approval of the bond.
