In the meantime que a crowd gathered
outside the saloon to get a glimpse of the
outlaws. A few of the hotheads began to
talk of summary Justice and the like. One
enthusiastic Individual circulated In the
crowd and stirred up the feelings of quite
a number by saying there were, enough
there to take the prisoners away from the
officers. The patrol wagon was then sent
for and Patrolmen Glover nd Brady kept
the people at a distance while the three
prisoners were placed In he wagon. Be
fore the wagon arrived O'Hearn and Angus
showed considerable nervousness and asked
their custodians to take them back to tho
jail on a street car rather than wait for tho
wagon. Being assured of protection, the
prisoners seemed more at ease.
As the patrol wagon was being driven
hurriedly away from the saloon the crowd
followed the conveyance some feet and
yelled "Dirty cowards" to- the prisoners.
Monday morning the four prisoners were
photographed for the police records. At
1:30 they wero taken to the coroner's office
for the lniiiest, which was called at 2 p. m.
Angus' mother vlglted her son at the Jail
Monday morning ; and broke down 'when
she greeted her son through the grating.
The four prisoners spent the night quite
well and appeared more cheerful Monday
morning than might have been expected
under the circumstances.

night of a plan to attack the city Jail and

the council yesterday afternoon. The pro

all kinds sold In packages have the weight
stamped on the cover: The Cudahy people
protested that much of the package goods
are made to sell at a price, without any
strict pretensions as to weight, though often
referred yfa at . "quarter-pound," "half
pound" and other sizes. They wished the
ordinance changed to. apply to package
goods purporting to contain a specified
amount of goods.
Councilman Zlmman said that many Inter

have notified him they would object to the
ordinance, and that he had told each to for-
mulata an ordinance on the subject and
present it at a meeting to be held later.
The ordinance introduced in the council

Mitchell Defends Actions.
There was a sensational scene In the con
vention today which was an echo of tho
attack made on John Mitchell by Robert
Randall of Diets. Wyo.. In last year'a con
vention'. Randall charged Mitchell at that
time' with havtng'sold out the miners In the
Colorado strike -and Mitchell made reply
branding thotatement as a Ife. Today a
delegate named 'A'. ' F.' Germer of Mount
Olive. 111., made the charge that some of
Randall's statements were " correct last
year. He presented a lelrer ' from Secre
tary Heywooil' of-'the Western Federation
nf Miners lii which rHeywood denied the
statement made 111 Mitchell's address of
Saturday that Western Federation mem
bers were taking the places of the United
Mine Workers on strike. Mr. Mitchell made
reply to (his In a very heated statement
denouncing Randall's ' speech last year,
branding Heywood's atale-nents as false
and citing the places where Western Fed
eration miners had taken the strikers'
places. He named 'several places In Colo
rado and cited districts 2 and 14 and parts
of Washington state.
Relatione' with Civic Federation.
President Mitchell again referred to the
Charge that .be pad sold out the Colorado
strike and was strong In his denunciation
of those making the charge. He was loudly
cheered. Mr. M'tcbell said that the asao.
elation he bad with tbe members of flie
Civic Federation, )iad always been turned
to the advantage of the t'nlted Mine Work
ers of Aemrlca. He had not committed the
organization to anything. The Civic Feder
ation wns composed of twel.ve honorable
gentlemen, tliemseives employers or union
labor... The .eirtllnei orinclple of the Civic

agreement and In. recognising the trade

"Trie." he said.. "It.", has men like Mr.

would be no organized iiibot and no mine

John 'H. Walter, a . socialist lwider. Was

BEWARE OF SUBSTITUTIONS
RATE OUESIIQN IS SENATE
Mr. Clay Advocate! Giving mors Power to
In'.entato 'Commerc 8oid.
GOVERNMENT 0WNLRSHIP ALTERNATIVE
Mr. Aldrlch Annoonrea that He
Will Oppose Any Meaanre
Drafted Along Lines
WASHINGTON. Jan. 22. The question of
regulating railroad rates occupied pi ac
tually all of the time of the senate today
notwithstanding no bill with that end In
view has been reported from the Interstate
commerce committee. The discussion of the
subject was In connection with Mr. Clay's
speech. Messrs, Aldrlch, Foraker, Bailey
and Newlands being the principal partici
pants In addition to Mr. Clay himself.
Mr. Clay advocated the passage of a bill
which would give the Interstate Commerce
commission power to regulate rates when
complained of and said If there was not leg
islation along that line the country might
count upon agitation of the question of
government ownership. In that connection
ne rererreo to tne large vote given Mr.
In the lute New York municipal ;
election as an indication of the popularity
of municipal ownership of public utilities.
Mr. Aldrlch indicated a purpose to oppose
such legislation as that outlined and de
clared that Mr. Hearst was the author of
the proposition to confer the rate-making
power on the commission. He also took
occasion to declare that the signs of the
limes point to the naming of either Mr.
Hearst or Mr. Bryan as the next democratic
presidential candidate, but when pressed
to Indicate the probabilities In the republi
can party declined to make a prediction
and also avoided answering a query of Mr.
Bailey as to whether the president would
be a candidate for a third term.
At the conclusion of the morning busi
ness Mr. ClaV addressed the senate on his
resolution relating to governmental power
to fix maximum future charges by railroads.
Mr. Aldrlch asked Mr. Clay If complaints
would Increase or decrease. If the power to
fix rates were given to a commission. The
opinion was expressed by Mr. Clay that If
the power were given the commission a ma
jority of disputes would be settled by ship
pers and . the roads and the complaints
Mr. Clay said there seemed to be an Idea
that tn all Instances the Interstate Com
merce commission will decide against the
railroads, but he contended that there was
no Justification for such contention. It was
to be presumed, he said, that the commis
sion would do Justice tn all parties far more
Impartially than would either the carrier
or the shipper.
Dolllver Complains of Criticism.
'Senator Dolllver' Interrupted to complain
of a criticism of himself in the Washington
correspondence of a Philadelphia paper, in
which It was declared that "a snake had
been discovered In tho Dolllver rate bill,' a
trick by means of which the author of the
bill, who poses as a supporter of the president,-
Is seeking to emasculate the bill so It
will amount to nothing."
The provision .to which reference was
mode is the section In tho bill Introduced
by Mr. Dolllver that the commission by
mandamus proceedings In the United States
courts may enforce Its orders. This pro
vision was In addition to the penalty of
ta.OOO a day against the carrier which 'might
not comply with an order of the commis
sion. Mr. Dolllver declared the criticism was an
attack not upon himself alone, but upon the
entire Benate, and that It was "stupid, un
called for and libelous."
He said he had taken the provision criti
cised almost literally from the interstate
commerce bill In the senate committee on
Interstate commerce. He did not, he said,
consider It necessary to defend his own
character from such attacks, but he did
think It worth while to expose a stupidity
the like of which he had not before seen
perpetrated by a member of the press gal
Burton Gets His Mileage.
One of the moat remarkable procedures
In the history of the senate occurred today
in order to avoid & technicality which pre
vented Senator Burton of Kansas from
drawing his mileage from the present ses
sion. In order to have his requisition hon
ored it is necessary for some official of the
senate to tako oath that he had seen the
senator In the chamber: but since the In-
Nature's Way Is Best.
The function strengthening and tlssus
building plan of treating chronic, linger
ing andohstlnate case of disee as pur
sued by Dr. Pierce, is following after
Nature s plan of restoring health.
He uses natural remedies, (list is

prepared by processes wrought out by
the expenditure of much time ana
money, without the use of alcohol, and
by tkillfnl combination In just the right

for bronchitis, laryngitis, chronic coughs,
catarrh and kindred ailments.
The above native roots also have the
Strongest possible endorsement from the
leading medical writers, of all the several
schools of practice, for the cure not only
of the diseases named above but also for
Indigestion, torpor of liver, or bilious
tiees, obstinate constipation, kidney and
bladder troubles and catarrh, no matter
You don't have v take Dr. Pierce's
ssy-eo alone as to this: what he claims
for his "Discovery" is backed up by the
writings of the most eminent men In the
medical profession. A request by postal
card or letter, addressed to Dr. R. V.
Pierce. Buffalo, IS'. Y.. for a little book
of extracts from eminent medical au
thorities endorsing tbe Ingredient of hit

There Is no disposition on the. Iiart ol
anyone to withhold the mileage and. the
senator, therefore, was asked to step from
the cloak room Into the chamber for a
moment In order that he might he seen
by some official. He declined, but an em
ploye engaged him In conversation in the
cloak room near the entrance to the cham
ber. The employe suddenly turned . the
senator so that he faced the chamber and.
the attention of officials previously hav
ing been directed toward , this door, be
was seen from tne chamber- It, was then
certified that Senator Burton was In at
tendance and his mileage was paid him.
