PREMIER COMBES WINS-FIGHT
French Depntie? Tote Down All Formi of
Teaching by Eel gioai Orders.
STATE SCHOOLS TO BE SUBSTITUTED
Parliamentary Bill Waa One ol the
Severest the Chamber lias Ex
perienced Jn Recant
PARIS, March 28. By the decisive ma
jority of 316 to 2b9 tho Chamber of Deputies
tonight passed the government bill for the
auppresHlun of all forma of teaching by
the religious orders. This supplements and
completes the work begun by the former
premier, M. Waldeck-Rousseau, In 1901.
The first law suppressed the unauthor
ized teaching orders which had for a long
time carried on their vocation despite the
lack of legal sanction. The new law does
not make any distinction between author
ised and unauthorised congregations, but
sweeps away the whole fabrlo of teaching
by religious orders, thus in effect substi
tuting the system of state schools for those
heretofore conducted by tho orders.
Besides affecting the educational system,
the passage of-the bill la the achievement
of tha principal work undertaken by Pre
mier Combes, and It is believed that the
promler will not voluntarily retire.
The parliamentary battle over the bill
waa one of the severest which the Cham
ber of Deputies haa aeen In recent years.
Premier Combes, however, maintained his
majorities on the main features of the bill
and the closing vote was In the nature of
a personal triumph for him.
The bill, which still haa to pass the Sen
ate, though no very serious opposition to
it Is anticipated there, . forbids all teach
ing by the religious orders In the territory
of . France proper and .' provides 'Tor Tithe
suppression within ten years of all Orders
actually holding an authorisation to teach.
An amendment, which was carried de
spite the wlBhea of Premier Combes, ren
ders the measure Inapplicable to the col
onies, but as the premier waa careful to
point out in the final debate, this does
not affect the power conferred on the gov
ernment by the law of 1W1 of closing such
schools In the colonies by decree. The
existing congregations are prohibited from
recruiting new members and their novitiates
are accordingly suppressed at once with
the exception of a few which are destined
solely for the purpose of training teachers
for service in the colonies. These latter,
however, are forbidden to enroll minors.
Severe penaltlee attach to any attempt to
evade these provisions.
The property of the authorized congre
gations is to remain untouched until the
closlrg of their last school when a liquida
tor Is to be appointed to wind up their
affairs, pensioning the survivors and re
turning to the owners and donors bequests
which have been conditionally made and

way were I to say anything concerning the
Senator, Burton went., directly from the
court room to the Southern hoto afler the
verdict was rendered, and retired to his
room for rest. After a time he went down
to the hotel lobby and sat around talking
with friends who occasionally dropped In.
Apparently he was very nervous, and his
appearance was worn, the anxiety of the
past week having very perceptibly left Its
effect. When arked by the Associated
Presa if he had anything to say concerning
the verdict, he hesitated a few moments,
and then with a gesture of his hand, said:
"I refer all inquiries to my attorneys.
Tou certainly appreciate the situation and
understand that I have nothing to Say."
The evidence adduced against Senator
Burton may be summarized as follows:
Summary of the Case. '
In November, 1902, he accepted a proposi
tion to become general counsel of the Rlalto
Grain and Securities company, a concern
whose operations at the time were under
the scrutiny of postofflce officials. Burton
demanded $2,500 for hla services, but he
was satisfied to be paid In monthly Install
ments of tffio each.
Foon after his employment it developed
that the federal grand Jury waa Investi
gating the li-ooka brokerage company,
with whlrh Major 'Hugh C. Dennis, presi
dent of the Rlalto company, had been as
sociated. Numerous letters written by Bur
ton showed that the senator was using his
Influence to prevent the Issuance of a frand
order against tho Rlalto Grain and Securi
Burton submitted regular reports to the
Rlalto people, telling them how matters
were progressing at Washington, advising
them of complaints filed at the Post'ifflce
department, and closing with the assurance
that "If you look after things at your end
of the line, I will attend to mutters here."
The testimony of postofflce officials was
that Senator Burton had told him he In
tended to practice before the department:
that he had Jovt $70. (Kx) In the panic, and
desired to "make some money aa a prac
ticing Iswyer." .
Senate Most Vacate Seat.
WASHINGTON, March 28. Members of
the senate committee on privileges and
elections have discussed informally the con
viction of Senator Burton, but until the
matter comes before the committee the
memberi are loath to give their personal
views. It will take a formal election by
the senate to declare Burton's seat racant,
and this will not be done until a court of
last resort has passed upon the case.
Senators do not know of any precedents,
as no conviction of senators are within the
recollection of the oldest senators.

election cases from 1783 to 19.0 shows no

signed before action on charge. The first
expulsion from the aenste for any cause
was that of William Blount, who was a
senator from Tennessee from 1796 to 1799.
A special Investigating committee found
him- guilty of the authorehtp of a letter
capable of various construction, but which
In his own mind, according to the latter,
appeared to be 'inconsistent with the In
terests of the United States and Spain."
He was found guilty of misdemeanor, and
a resolution of expulsion was adopted by
a vote of 26 to 1.
For complicity In the Burr conspiracy
an action was brought to" expel John
Smith, a senator from Ohio from October
23. lsiO, until he resigned, April 2S. 1808.
Indictments had been found against Sen
ator Smith In the courts of Virginia, but
he was not convicted. When the resolu
tions for expulsion were presented tu the
senate tho vote, after long debate, re
sulted In nineteen yeas and ten nays. Two
thirds of th senate not concurring therein,
he was not expelled, but about two weeks
later he resigned. A tiumber of southern
senators were expelled when their states

Disloyalty mid Corruption.
Another ease where a senator resigned
without final action having been taken on
charges brought . against him Is that of
James F; Simmons who, while senator
from Rhode .Island, resigned In August,
1862, under .charges alleging that he had
received compensation on. government con
tracts. Near the end of Mr. Simmons' seo
ond term In the senate a resolution ws
submitted that ho be expelled. The pre
amble stated that it appeared from a re
port of the secretary of war that Mr. Sim
mons had exercised his official influence to
of the. opinion that "such a practice Is
person to manufacture rifles In behalf of
the government and that Mr. Simmons had
agreed to receive as compensation for such
service the sum of M.Ono and that he had
already received .two promissory notes
amounting to , $10,000. The committee on
the Judiciary reported that the fncts were
substantially as given, and that they were
procure ah order authorizing a certain
entirely Inde'enslble, and- that It was
highly Improper for a senator of the
United States to have acted thus even
when the government sustained no loss
thereby;" that It was manifest that con
gress disapproved of such conduct from
the fact that they had. promptly pased a
law making It a penal ofTense thereafter,
but that to visit a severe penalty on an
act which at the time xt its commission
was not punishable or forbidden by public
law would be retroactive In its effect and
render the step liable to, that objection to
which all post facto laws are Justly sub
ject, The committee unanimously reported tho
resolution, accompanied by the statement
of facts, so thut the senate might take such
ncuon as they might see fit, No action was

was made and Mr. Simmons resigned hi.

WEBSTER CITY, la., March 28.(Spe
clal.) During the past week twelve counties
In Iowa have organized branch associa
tions to the Corn licit Meat Producers' As
sociation of Iowa and before many days
each one of the ninety-nine counties will
have an orfcanliatlon. It is proposed to
carry the movement Into every state In the
Mississippi valley, which is in Uie corn and
Among the twelve other counties organ
ised the past week, Hamilton was organ
ized in this city. A larger concourse of
farmers from all Over the county haa not
been In this city for a long time. They
were enthusiastically In favor of the asso
ciation and exceedingly bitter toward the
railroads and packers. They seem to be
aroused to a pitch such aa haa not been
reached since the famous granger move
ment of years ago. Hamilton county la
no exception to the general run of expres
sion as found all over the stato. The
farmers and shippers present at the meet
ing In this city are all up In arms against
both the railroads and packers. They claim
that as the railroads now move their stock
it takes eighteen hours longer to reach
Uie Chicago market from central Iowa
points, counting tho time they have to
drive .uttle from home, than under
the arrangement of two years ago. They
also claim that in this extra eighteen hours
cattle shrink $80 per ear more than before.
In a bill, which passed the lower houue the
other day, the farmers were given return
passes, but Instead of setting a rate of
twenty miles per hour for atock trains,
they set It at seventeen miles on branch
roads and fifteen on the main lines. The
farmers claim that this waa a deal In
which the railroads traded them a $10 pass
for a shrinkage of $S0 per car and that
the big packers, who are In with the rail
roads, simply make $70 per car load of
cattle off them In the deal.
During the organization of this county
several red hot speeches were made, which
will serve to show the real feeling and at
titude of the farmers and shippers of the
state. J. J. Ryan, secretary of the state
association, said In part:
ur organisation Is not political, except
that It is interested In electing legislators
who are not in the clutches of the railroad.
Ihere has never been an organisation

C. W. Maher spld:
I have been In the cattle bustneas forty
eight years and the history 'of that forty
eight yers Is to the detriment of the Iowa
farmer. Some time ago the. superintend
ents of the various railroads combined and
added six hours to their Chicago schedule.
Then the traffic managers combined and
took our passes away from us. These two
things have aroused the people. Iowa raises
one-half the hogs of the United States and
more cattle than any other state excepting
Texas. What we want and what wo must
and will have Is cheaper transportation, so
that the consumer will consume more of
our produce and so that we will get our
share of the product of production which
the packer's trust and the railroads are
Some of these big trust laugh and say
that we farmers cannot combine. Why,
several years ago the farmers of Webster
county got together and formed a mutual
Insurance company. What have they now?
They have over $3,000,000 of Insurance In
force and are furnishing It at 26 per cent
less than the old line companies furnish It.
Some years ago the farmers also organized
and erected elevators all over this state
and the wheat belt. Now we propose to
condense our grain Into rattle and the com
bination we are now forming to fight the
railroads and packers will be Just as suc
cessful as these.

sociation are: President. Alexander Groves,
Webster City; vice president, Oliver Saline,
Stratford; secretary, E.- H. Hawbarker,
Stratford; treasurer, J. P. Tuttle, Williams.
Objects of Organisation.
In brief, the objects and plans of the
movement are: .
1. To organize the meat producers of the
states comprising the corn belt Into county
associations by uniting men who feed not
less than a carload of cattle, hogs or sheep
during the year or who ship to market In
2. Tu act as the agent of Its members In
looking utter tlnli Interests before the
legislatures of tho stuto and nation. To
advocate the enactment of good and the
repeal of bad laws. In other words, to
offset the Influence of the lobby constantly
employed by railroads and trust magnates.
To be over watchful of the Interests of the
meat producers, as the railroad attorneys
tire watchful of the interests ol' their
I. To furnish statistics of the number of
stock on feed In thu corn belt during any
month In the year. Such Information has
never before been obtainable by the feeder
from any source. This Information will
enable the feeder to guard against exces
sive supplies and overproduction In the
sumo way that the manufacturer and mine
manager do through their associations.
4. It Is advocated by many of the members
that an appropriation be made to establish
and maintain a packing plant In connection
with the agricultural college at Ames,
where the methods of managing packing
plants, curing, canning and preparing meats
for the market shall be taught, so that the
people may have at all times men who are
competent to take rhurge of and manage
packing Institutions In Iowa.
6. The association shull at all times be
In touch with the steamship alines that
ransport Uve stock to foreign markets and
be able tu furnish space and competent
help to any of Its members who desire to
