THE ANTI-OPTIONS MEASURE
IN THE HOUSE.
It It Materially Weakened by Radical
Amendments—Some Rig Surprises for
Mr. Hatch—Flour Added to the List of
Agricultural Products Affected by the
BUI—The Measure Utterly Unfitted to
the Accomplishment of Its Purpose.
Wasiiingtox, Juno 33.—Immediately
on convening to-day the house went
Into committee of the whole on the
anti-option bill. It was read by sec
tions for amendment and Mr. Aldrich
of Illinois offered the first, inserting
“flonr” in the list of agricultural pro
ducts affected by the bill.
Mr Crain of Texas, speaking to a
8to forma amendment, read from the
cala platform that the anti-option
bill was based on Populist doctrine
and asserted that the bill was vicious
or deceptive, for it stated that its
purpose was to raise revenue by
legalizing gambling, and if it sup
pressed gambling then it would not
The amendment of Mr. Aldrich was
ad ted on division, 93 to 33.
en the house in committee by a
vote of 81 to 74 adopted an amend
ment offered by Mr. Stone of Penn
sylvania exempting thirty day op
tions. It was an unexpected defeat
and Mr. Hatch and others, amid great
confusion, raised the point of no quo
rum, Mr. Hatch saying that the
amendment, if adopted, would de
stroy the bill.
On a demand for tellers the vote on
the Stone amendment was 93 to 92,
and it was thereby lost by a tie.
The house adopted by a vote of 97
to 83 the amendment offered by Mr.
Boatner, excepting from the opera
tion of the bill such transactions as
should be entered into in good faith.
Mr. Hatch vehemently declared that
its intent was to kill the bill and that
he would quite as soon have the com
mittee strike out the enacting clause
as adopt the amendment.
Just before the committee of the
whole rose the Boatner amendment
was carried by a vote of 107 to 24 and
the bill as reported to tho house from
Mr. Hatch^ point of view was utterly
unfitted to the accomplishment of
his purposes. Mr. Hatch was suffer
ing exceedingly from a severe indis
position, but his lieutenants made
every effort to rally the friends of the
measure so that when the yea and
nay vote should be taken the emascu
lating amendment might be de

TO LOWER INCOME LIMITS.
Air. Test Reports an Amendment to Tax

Washington, Jyme 23.—Before the
consideration of the tariff bill was re
sumed by the senate to-day, the house
bill to incorporate the supreme lodge
'~©14he Knights of Pythias was re
ported favorably by Senator Faulkner
and passed immediately. A bill was
also passed for the relief, of Charles
college, Mo., (being payment for use
as property during the war), as well'
as one making the first Monday in
September of each year (Labor day) a
When the tariff bill was laid before
the senate, Mr. Kyle took the floor
and spoke briefly. He made a gen
eral argument favoring the income
tax, dwelling on the decline in farm
values in the West and the gradual
concentration of wealth in the hands
of the few. He urged that the pro
tective system had been responsible
for the concentration of wealth in the
hands of the few and it was just and
equitable that the few should bear
the share of the burden of taxation
which their wealth made them able
At the conclusion of Mr. Kyles
speech, Mr. Vest offered four addition
al amendments to the income tax sec
tions. The most imporant was one to
reduce the exemption from 84,000 to
83,-«00, another exempted from the
operation of the tax building and loan
associations making loans only to
their shareholders and another pro
vided that in reckoning the profits of
corporations for taxation, actual op
erating expenses, losses and interest
on fixed indebtedness should be ex
Mr. .Teller supported the income
tax proposition. He quoted from the
utterances of some of the leaders of
the Republican party, past and pres
ent who advocated the injome tax in
the past. Oliver P. Morton had char
acterized :t as the most just and
equitable of all taxes. -Senator Sher
man had eulogized it as had Senator
Morrill of Vermont.
“That was during the war, “inter
rupted Mr. Morrill. “It was proposed
as a war measure.”
“Oh, Mr. President,” replied Mr.
Teller, “I don’t think an unjust and
inequitable tax was proposed nor de
fended even as a war tax.”
The Apple Crop.
Leavehworth, Kan., June 23.—
Judae Wellhouse of Fairmount, who
controls the largest apple orchard in
Kansas, has received reports from
nearly every section of the state re
garding the fruit crop. He says the
apple crop will be above average, yet
it will not be as large as it was four
years ago. The Ben Davis, pippin and
jennatin trees and most of the sum
mer varieties are loaded down with
fruit, while the winesaps and other
less hardy varieties are failing on ac
count of blight

SUGAR THE STICKING POINT.
Boos* Democrat* Arrayed Aplnit the
WAsnntGTOx, June 23.—No agree
ment has as yet been reached in the
ways and means committee concern
ing the stand which tho house is to
take on the sugar schedule of the tar
iff bill. It is believed, however, that
the struggle between the senate and
the house on this schedule will be
desperate, with tho possibility of a
The Wilson bill, as it left the house,
contained no sugar schedule, as the
tax on raw and refined sugar had
been struck out and the bounty had
been abolished outright. The senate
schedule is, therefore, the only sugar
proposition to go to conference, and
the first issue will be on rejecting the
senate schedule entirely and thus re
turning to the house form of the bill.
If one or the other side will not yield
on this issue the next step will be to
frame a compromise.
“I believe in remaining right hero
at our desks until the fourth of next
March rather than surrender to the
senate sugar schedule,” said Mr. War
ner of New York. “I thiuk,moreover,
that the house is certain to make
resistance which will compel the sen
ate to yield. It will be hot weather
in Washington and a protracted strug
gle will bring many discomforts, but
it will not be half as hot for congress
men here as it will be in their dis
tricts if they put a tax on sugar. Our
constituents and our editors are for
free sugar, so that members can be
serving their districts best by remain
ing here until the senate is forced to

Wagner and Full man to Have Competi
tors at St. Joseph.
St. Joseph, Mo., June 23.—The Wil
liams Palace Car company, capitalized
at 83,000,000, will, it is an
nounced, begin the construction of
cars in this city to compete with the
Pullmau and Wagner companies.
There is a large saving of weight
in the Williams car. According to
the statements given out the berths
will be a little longer than those in
the Pullman and Wagner cars and
about the same width. They will be
arranged in about the same manner
with upper and lower tiers. The rail
upon which the mattresses will rest
will be made of aluminium and will
close up in the same manner that an
accordion does and be deposited in the
wall of a car in a space of one and
seven-eighths of an inch in thickness.
Upon these frames will rest mat
tresses made of cloth and rubber,
which will be inflated with air imme
diately before being put in use. In
summer chilled air and in the winter
warmed air will be used.
TOLD NOT TO GAMBLE.
Toung Ransom Tells Ills Story to the Su
gar Investigating Committee.
Washington, June 23. —The sugar
bribery committee held a brief session
yesterday and examined George Ran
som, son of Senator Ransom, arid clerk
of the senate commttee oa commerce,
and also Captain C. Barnes, messen
ger of that committee, in regard to
their purchases of sugar stock. Their
statements were corroborative of that
made by Senator Ransom when he was
before the investigating committee.
George Ransom said his father had
'not known of the purchase and in fact
he writs the last person to whom he
would have spoken of the transaction,
for his father had always toid him
not to gamble. - -
. Captain Barnes also testified to
keeping the knowledge of his sugar
stock purchases from Senator Ransom,
‘"because,” he said, -‘I know he would
be very severe on me if he found it
out. He was opposed to everything
of that kind.”

during the night and died at 6:30

During his forty-nine years of active
service in the interest of the Catholic
church he established many missions

its resources and inhabitants. The

old next month.

Colorado Springs, Col., June 25.—
Adjutant General Tarsney of this
state, said to be a broter of Congress
man Tarsney of Missouri aud ex-Con
gressiuan Tarsney of Michigan, was
kidnaped from the Alamo hotel a few
minute* after midnight this morning
by masked men, supposed to be ex
deputy sheriffs, taken to the suburbs
in a hack aud there tarred and feath
ered. Tlie outrage was the dihect re
sult of the recent Cripple Creek
When police officers arrived General
Tarsney could not be found and up to
noon to day he had not been heard
from. About 1 o'clock, however, he
was found at Palmer Lake, twenty
five miles away.
General Tarsney had been in the
city several days attending the exam
ination of the arrested Bull Hill
miners, for whom lie aud Colonel B.
F. Montgomery of Cripple Creek, ap
peared as attorneys.
OVERPOWERED IN A HOTEL OFFICE.
At five minutes past 12 o'clock a call
came over the telephone of the Alamo
hotel for Tarsney. The clerk sent
the night porter, the only other man
in the hotel office, to call him. He
appeared in a very few minutes and
stepped up to the 'phone. He had
hardly spoken a word into the re
ceiver, when two men, with masks on
their faces, entered and one advanced
on Tarsney while the other remained
near the door.
“We want you,” said the first
masked man, as the general turned
on hearing footsteps.
“What do you want?” quietly asked
“We want you to come with us,”
was the reply.
“But I don’t want to go anywhere,”
returned Tarsney, at the same time
making an effort to retreat.
At this the masked man lunged for
ward, pistol in hand and struck
General Tarsney a vicious blow with
the weapon while the masked man
near the door advanced to his com
panion's assistance. Tarsney stag
gered toward the office counter, but
was ruthlessly seized by the two
masked men and hurried toward the
The clerk did not interfere. He
had been warned to keep his hands off
by a third masked man ivho had sud
denly appeared at the door.
In front of the hotel two hacks
were standing and four other masked
men were seen there. The general
was hustled into one of the vehicles,
the masked men scrambled in, the
drivers were ordered to be oif, and up
I the street the party moved at a galop.
In fifteen minutes Police Captain
i Gaithright and Officers Harland and
j Henry were on horses and riding
I furiously in the direction taken by
i the kidnapers and their victim. The
I officers had a poor trail to follow for
j it was pitch dark and they only knew
j the masked party had gone out of
town to the north and they did not
arrive on the scene in time.
QUICKLY TARRED AND FEATHERED.
The drivers of the two hacks first
brought the news to town. It was
that the masked men had taken their
j victim to a point near Austin Bluffs
between two and three miles out of
! town and covered him over with tar
| and feathers.
Sherman Crumley, one ot the
drivers, told the following story:
“My brother and I own the hacks.
I Shortly before midnight, two men
! came to our stand .and said they
| wanted to engage two hacks for a
I drive. They did not wear masks then,
j They told me to drive in front of the
Alamo. I saw the struggle inside the
hotel office and knowing that some
thing unusual was up I started to
drive away, but was stopped by men
with masks on their faces and pistols
in their hands. After they all got in
the hack. I was told where to drive to
for the first time. They compelled
me to whip the horses. On
arriving at a point near Austin Bluffs
they all got out. They made an aw
ful lot of noise and kept on swearing
and making threats. Several times
on the way out I heard them threaten
Tarsney’s life. I think they had
Tarsney'", clothes off by the time they
ordered the hack stopped, at least I
did not see many clothes on him
when I first saw him on the ground.
They had a bucket and a brush, and
the deed was so on don?.”
A few minutes later Tarsney’ was
left lyiDg on the ground and the
masked men re-entered the carriages
and were driven to the Rock Island
tracks. There they dismissed their
drivers, not paying them but simply
saying, “Good night, Johnny.”
ORDERED OUT OF THE COUNTRY.
Driver Crumley says that after the
tar and feathers had beeD appried,
Tarsney was told to move on -out of
El Paso county; that he was not
wanted either in Cripple Creek or Col
orado Springs, and that if he ever
showed up again he would meet a
worse fate than a dose of tar and
There was a meeting of twenty-five
deputy sheriffs at Antler's park at 10
o'clock, and it is believed the plot
against General Tarsney was hatched
A tremendous mass meeting of citi
zens was held at 10 o’clock, at which
resolutions were adopted denouncing
the outrage in the strongest lan
Sherman Crumley and Jean McKin
ney, who drove the hacks, have been
placed under arrest.
Crumley, who owns both hacks.says
one masked man remained with
Tarsney, ostensibly to show him the
way back to the city. Some of the
men wanted to kill Tarsney. but
their leader held them in check.
Tarsney thanked this- man and shook
hands with him.
Cariosities From the French.
A novel which was recently orown*
9d by the French academy as pos
sessed of unusual merit contained a.
sentence of which the following is a
translation: “It was midnight. A
man who lay in ambush listened to
their conversation; but suddenly a.
dense dark cloud passed in front of
the moon, and prevented him from
hearing more." Here is another
phrase, written in full earnest by a
master of French criticism: “It was
one of those duels in which one of
the blades literally buries itself ia
the heart of the other." A criticism
in a French journal upon a dramatio
performance lately ended with these
words, which are worthy of Sir
Boyle Roche: “Mme. .Judic’s talent
is like the froth on good champagne.
Beware of thrusting the scalpel into
it; for if you do. there will remain
naught but a pinch of ashes at the
bottom of the alembic." Another
French journal, in speaking of the
results of certain false reports, de
clared: “This is the handiwork of
svil tongues, manipulated by crual
