General MacArthur was again the wit
Bess before the committee today and he
began bis statement with reference to the
burning of villages by the native forces In
He said that the order for this destruc
tion bad been issued by General Luna and
that he found that this was due to the fact
that Luna had been a student of Napoleon's
campaigns, and had conceived the Idea that
he could compel the American forces to
retreat as the Russians had forced the
French conqueror to retreat from Moscow.
In this connection General MacArthur
read a number of orders Issued by himself,
directing the conduct of troops in the field
and enjoining the utmost kindness in the
treatment of captured and wounded. In one
of these orders tbs . American forces were

With the heavy odds ot experience and
confidence arrayed against them, the base
ball team of Crelghton university yesterday
afternoon succeeded In holding "Pa's Pets"
down to a score of 11 to 2 In the first game
between these teams at '.Vinton street park.
Though the day was disagreeable, very
nice base bail was perpetrated, and the
falr-slsed crowd of Omaha tans who were
on hand to watch. tbelr favorites perform
were for the first time this year given the
treat. of feeing .soma bitting by the
leaguers. Vp to this time the games played
at home have been devoid ot any appre
ciable proportion. of stick work, but In yes
terday's contest the men came to the front
handily with a little bunch of twelve nice
ones, triples, doubles and singles mixed.
Three of the regular team players.
Hickey, Fleming and Genlns, were given a
holiday by Captain Stewart, and their three
substitutes made themselves solid with the
crowd. Rlsley, who went lot middle field
for Genlns, scored two bits and' two runs.
and yet he is a pitcher. Stone, the utility
outfielder who took Fleming's place in left
field, led the list with three bits, one for
three pillows. Little Pete Burg, the
midget, who plays an emergency Infield
Job, went In at third for Hickey and gave
further proof of his reliability and value
by handling a few very puxzllng bits In
Just the correct manner and with absolute
accuracy and no delay. One time with a
man on first and second the ball was batted
slowly down the third base line. Burs
rushed it and scooped It Up half way to
the plate, then turned sharp around and
caught the runner at second, where two
third basemen out of three In similar cir
cumstances of 'haste and position would

DETROIT. Mich.. April 10. The police
admit tonight' that they have not reached a
solution of the murder of George H. Hey
wood, head bookkeeper of the Michigan
Malleable Iron works, whose battered and
lifeless body was found at daylight tbls
morning within 100 feet of his home on Am
William M. Jones, who roomed In Hey
wood's borne and who was arrested on sus
picion this morning, was still In custody to
night,, although a "tweatbox" examination
lasting all day and this evening failed to
bring from him any damaging admissions.
Mrs. Haywood, who was escorted to police
headquarters at noon and closely examined
this afternoon and evening, was permitted
to return to her home tonight. The offi
cers say that no Information was secured
from her that would throw any light on the
cause of her busband'a death.
Heywood'a murderer first shot him and
then crushed in his forehead with some
heavy instrument. The bullet took effect
behind his right ear and In itself would
have caused death. The murderer then ap
parently stooped over his victim and dealt
blm a blow on the forehead.
Find Suspicions Hammer.
After Jones' arrest officers searched bis
room at the Heywood house. Jones vas a
plumber add made a specialty of retiring
gas stoves. In his kit of tools was found a
machinist's hammer which tbo officers as
serted fits perfectly the hole In Heywood't
In a lot near where the body was dis
covered a revolver was found which Key
wood's young son at first positively identi
fied as belonging to Jones. Later In ths
day, however, the lad was nbt to sure of
Jonea wat very cocl and collected through
out his sweating and told freely all he said
be knew of the tragedy. . During the exam
ination of Heywood'a little daughter. Kate,
by the officers the fact was developed that
she hesrd a shot fired about 3 o'clock this
morning. The officers bave located persons
who saw Heywood, who attended a dance
yesterday evening three blocks from his
home at 2:55 o'clock. Mrs. Heywood told
the officers that at 3 o'clock In the morning
she gave Jones a headache powder. -Search
for the Husband.
As her busband did not return during
the night Mrs. Heywood was very much
alarmed, and, arising early, she sent ber
oldest boy. Earl, aged 12, out to see If be
could find any trace of his father. The
little chap had gone but a short distance
from the ' house when be discovered the
lifeless remains of the parent. The police
were notified and the body was removed
to the morgue and placed beside the re
mains of Miss Jennette, who had also been
murdered but a few hours before.
An examination of Heywood't body and
clothes showed that robbery was not the
motive. There, was but the one wound,
evidently made with a heavy blunt instru

an ugly cut, Detectives were immediately
put to work oni-the cast and they arretted

his relations with the Heywood family. He

he first .became acquainted with the Hey
wood family about five years ago, when hs

line stove for them. Hs has been board
ing there since last February.
There was a freshly discharged cartridge
In the revolver found In the alley and said
to belong to Jones. Dr. W. H. Baker, who
examined Heywood'a body as soon ss It bad
been found, is of ths opinion that ths
wound was Inflicted by a revolver held at
very close range.
Mrs. Heywood, her three children and a
neighbor, Mrs. Hobart, were taken to po
lice headquarters at noon and examined by
Captain of Detectives McDonnell. On ber
way to the car Mrs. Heywood said, In ans

DEPEW FAVORSJHE OLD WAY
New York Senator Opposes Election
ot Senators by Direct
WASHINGTON, April 10. An effort was
made late today in tbe senate to obtain
an agreement for a vote on the Chinese
exclusion bill, but It was unsuccessful.
The measure was under discussion during
the entire session except for about an hour.
In which time the post office appropriation
bill was considered and passed. Three
speeches were made against tbe Chinese
bill In Its present form, Mr. Dillingham
of Vermont concluding his remarks and
Mr. Stewart of. Nevada and Mr. Hoar of
Massaohusetts stating their objections to
the bill. Mr. Stewart said he would vote
for the measure If It was the best that
could be obtained, as he favored tbe ex
clusion of Chinese laborers, but be waa
opposed to many of Its provisions. Mr.
Hoar announced his vigorous opposition to
the bill, declaring that he never, would
vote tor it.
Early In tbe session Mr. Depew spoke
briefly against the bill providing for tbe
election of senators by popular vote. He
offered the following amendment to the
Depew'a Proposed Chanwe. .y
Th Aimllflmtlnna of citizens entitled to
vote for United States senators and repre
sentatives In congress shall be uniform in
all the states and congress shall have
power to enforce thla article by appro
priate legislation and to provide for the
registration of citizens entitled to vote,
the conduct of such elections and the cer
tificate of the result.
In part Mr. Depew said tbe proposed
amendment under consideration proposes to
make tbe senate a popular body and re
verse the principle upon which tbe govern
ment has existed down to the present time.
Mr. Depew said it in the election of
United States senators a small oligarchy In
any atate can send here representation

GR0SVEN0R F0R CUBAN BILL
Declares Present Tariff on Sngar Is
I'nrraannahle and Demands Chanac
WASHINGTON, April 10 The debate on
the Cuban reciprocity bill In the house to
day was devoid of enlivening features. Tbe
most notable speech of the day waa made
by Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio. He answered
the critics who have charged him with In
consistency by saying that reciprocity was
sound republican doctrine and that tariff
schedules were not sacred. He predicted
that the time would come when there would
be an Inexorable demand for revision of tbe
Mr. Hltt of Illinois, chairman of tbe for
eign affairs committee, reported back the
Cochran resolution ot Inquiry calling on
the secretary of state for Information re
garding the alleged removal by Canadian
officers of landmarks along the Alaskan
border. The resolution was adopted With
out division. He reported back the Sulzer
resolution, calling upon the secretsry of
state for the report of the governor of
Louisiana and all other correspondence re
lating to tbe establishment of a British
base of supplies near Louisiana and the
shipment of horses and mules for the use
of the British army In South Africa. The
resolution waa adopted.
The honse then resumed the consideration
of the Cuban reciprocity bill. Mr. Grosve
nor of Ohio, tbe first speaker today, made
an earnest speech In favor of the bill. The
president and his csbinet, be said, favored
legislation on the line of the pending
He said with great emphasis tbat he had
never yet permitted himself to worship tbe
tariff system as a fetlcbrnot to be touched
or examined. He warned the young repub
licans about him tbat If they believed the
present tariff schedules were to bo forever
defended they had as well retire to private
life. The republican party, he announced,
must not chain Itself to the tariff schedules.
With some feeling Mr. Grosvenor then
answered the charges of Inconsistency
brought against himself. He called atten
tion to the remarks on reciprocity made by
Prealdent Roosevelt at Charleston yester
day, which be described as "tbe best speech
the president ever made," and humorously
remarked that he wondered at the teraerltv
ot the president In making such statements
while republicans In tbe bouse were de
nouncing such statements as party disloy
alty. Tre present tariff on raw sugar, he de
clared, was blgh beyond all reason. If the
0 per cent reduction were made the tariff
n suear would then be 5 per cent higher
thin the framers of the Dlngley bill ln
icr.tl d. If the beet sugar people had an
:i.dustry that could not stand against tbe
world with $1.40 a huudred protection, then
it had better be abandoned.
In conclusion Mr. Grosvenor denied tbat
tbe pending bill constituted an assault uoon
the protective theory.
Mr. Weeks of Michigan followed with a
speech In. opposition to the bill. He argued
that there was. no obligation upon us .to
aid Cuba. It was ridiculous, he contended,
to say that. because we. freed Cuba at the
coat of hundreds of lives and millions of
dollars, that therefore we were under a
load ot debt to tbe Island.
