It is stated that Wain also told the
ttouth Omaha police that he knew some,
thing about tho shooting of Frank N
Clarke, which has been a mystery to the
police officers of Omaha since the time
o ltt- occurrence. HeJsald none - of hie
companions had anything to do with It, but
that "rnab by the name of Garfield" and
hi companion were the chief actors In
the holdup.. Garfield and bis pal took the
Rock1 Island' train a few nights ago, bound
for Davenport. It is likely that they may
go from there to St. Louie. If the state
meat of Gathrtght turns out to be the
truth there will be another large Item of
credit to'the Industry of. the South Omaha
police department.
Clark and. Wain were -taken to the city

only a tew months since one of the mem
bers of fte Omaha police force was saved
from death at the hands' of Oathrlght In the

another lOfftcer. This waa laat September,

sought to take him by force and while off

drew a revolver and was actually pressing
It against the lower left portion of the offl

movement' happened to catch the eye of

the crime. He said:

CINCINNATI, inarch lb. Mr. Davis acted
on the advice of the attorneys in refusing
to appear before .the committee, holding
that the information which was sougut
from him was a business confidence which
he had no right to make public. He was
at his desk aa usual, even notifying the
committee where he could bo found If they
wished to secure his arrest. Attorneys
for the committee, however, said that they
feared any attempt to secure his arrest
In the ordinary way would be a cause for a

and the. legal Aontest which would follow.
For this res son they took the somewhat

WASHINGTON,' March 15-As the result
of a caucus which lasted for two snd a
half hours today, hft republicans of the
house voted i: to SB to1 stand by the stale
hood bill as It passed the house and ask the
senate for a conference ( on the measure.
(This vole followed Immediately after a
resolution offered by Mr. Mondell of Wyom
ing, representing the ; Insurgents, had been
defeated 131 to. 13, the Mondell resolution be
ing to agree to the senate amendment elim
inating Arisona and New Mexico from the
bill and asking a conference on the minor
amendments in the measure. Several
speeches, were made. They were limited to
five minutes each, but In the case of
Speaker Cannon and Mr. Hamilton of Mich
igan, chairman of the committee on terri
tories, the time was extended. Mr. Hamil
ton opened the discussion with a plea for
the original house bill
Cannon's Appeal for Honae Bill.
Mr. Mondell, In offering his proposition lor
concurrence, paid ' a high tribute to the
speaker, but declared that those who op
posed his position Were only acting In ac
cordance with their duty. The speaker fol
lowed, touching first on the binding effect
of both oaucusses and conferences. Ho
took the position that where the party took
action on any matter ofthla nature all
members participating; were bound by that
He made the point that there were twenty
residents of Oklahoma and Indian Terri
tory who objected "Sri' being tied together
where there was one In Arisona and New
Mexico. He admitted "he was being deluged
with telegrams on behalf of Oklahoma. He
contended that the effect of admitting Ok
lahoma and Indian Territory at this tirrle
and not disposing of Arisona and N Mex
ico only meant that, there would tie four
new senators from Arisona and New Mex
ico instead of but two senstors In case the
house stood firm. To add four senators
where but two should be added, he declared,

Would stand firm. Its statehood bill would
also become law and we can stay here for
three months, he declared.
Addressing the Insurgents, he added:
"Why Join the democracy? In order to
have your own way?" ,
( The speaker then turned Ills face toward
the senate and remarked: "On what meat
doth this our -Caesar feed that it. hath
grown so great?

and there la great difference of opinion as
to tho scope of this clause and the

Commenting on the gross earnings and the
net earnings of railroad properties Mr. Till
man said that once a year every dollar In
the t'nlted States passes through the hands
of the railroads and every three years
becomes a part fcf their -net earnings. He
asked If It Is sny wonder thst the railroads
have the most brilliant legal minds at
their command to conduct legLslatlon'nd
asserted the struggle Is between man and
money; citizenship and capital. He dis
cussed at length the building of great for
tunes and the manipulation of great prop
erties. Summing up the situation, he said:
It Is Impossible to deny that this great
accumulation of wealth In the hands of the
few Is such a menace to liberty that the
honest patriot stands appalled by the
After commenting at length upon what
he declared to be the existing system of
juggling with railroad properties "for the
robbery of the musses." Mr. Tillman stated
that this phase of the suoject brings Into
grear prominence and Importance "the
relation to congress of the Increase In
capitalization, whether It Is the purpose
of congress to compel the business In
dustries to pay dividends not UDon the
real value of these properties, but on the
fictitious value which has been sought to
be placed upon them by the Increased
One Dangerous Provision.
Concerning the spplicatlon of the bill to
thhj subject he said:
There is a danaerotis nrovlsion In this
bill which in my judgment ought to be
stricken out and that Is In Section 15,
where the Interstate commerce commission
ts told to "determine and prescribe what
in its judgment be the Just and rea
sonable and fairly remunerative rate," etc.
The last words are too elastic and
ambiguous snd ran be construed to mean
too much that it would be harmful and
dangerous for congress to enact into a law.
"Fairly remunerative rate," on what; the
actual value of the fictitious value of the

justice in compelling the people as a whole
to pay dividends on watered stock primarily
to Increase the fortunes of men already
too rich. He contended that "the poor
dupes," who have been led to Invest their.
savings In such stocks can better afford
to lose those earnings than . to have the
labor of the country saddled with the
burden' of saying perpetual-'' tribute In the
shape of dividends on dishonest valuations.
Mr. Tillman recommended that amend
ments to the bill be adopted which would
give relief to the "anomalous and out
rageous condition of affairs disclosed as
existing In West Virginia."
Continuing, he said:
Robbers and Railroads.

Mr.Ttllman concluded, with a word of
caution to the friends of the proposed
legislation. ; He sard:"' ''''' "
The demand of the people for relief from
the oppressions and wrongs they now en
dure may be thwarted by the great Inllu-
ence of the railroad corporations This In
fluence has hitherto been Important, and
lta representatives in the two houses may
feel that it la safe to redress the grieve

Judgment, be very unwise and will only
dam up the water. The Issue will be made

Inadequate legislation will find that when
at last the floodgates of popular wrath and
Indignation are hoisted there win do some
grinding tone. If those most Interested In
these great properties will not consent to
wise legislation vo relieve the distress of
the people, there is danger of more radical
policies and leaders coming to the front,

Senator Newland s idea of the bill was
presented by Mr. Tillman.
Mr. Newlanda said that while lie has
Joined in the report on the Hepburn bill
and Is In sympathy with Us general pur
poses, he thought that It is incomplete and
fragmentary. He expressed his belief that
the legislation would not ,,be as -effective
as It should be unless there were added
to the pending measures provisions for
the incorporation of railways engaged in
Interstate commerce guarding against
over-capitalization, fixing with . certainty
Che rule for toe taxation of such railway
property by the states and prescribing a
fixed limit for dividends. '
Such legislation be contended should not
simply cover the Interests of. the shippers
and the common curriers It should em
brace the- interests of labor by providing
for an insurance fund against accidents
and old age and for conciliation of dis
putes botween carriers and- their em
ployes. -
Senator Newlanda dlsoussed corporate
activity in politics, saying It haa been in

believed it unnecessary to seek either
the co-operation or the consent of the

he was convinced It was wiser to secure

and the states. National incorporation

on opening the senate today, but Mr. Piatt

A bill was passed regaling the provisions
of the tonnage law of 1M, authorizing the
president to suspend some of the exactions.
The senate chamber soon filled and by the
time Mr. Tillman took the floor to present
his report on the railroad bill there wss an
average attendance.
The report was awarded the unusual dis
tinction of being read at length. In pre
senting the, document the South Carolina
senator stated that the report contained
only his views and was not, therefore, a' re
port in the ordinary sense.
"Let the Senators' views be read," said
Mr. Aldrlch. Mr. Tillman at first demurred,
but Mr. Aldrlch replied that he had real
curiosity to know what Mr. Tillman's views
were and, other senstors Joining In the de
mand, he yielded and the clerk proceeded
with the reading.
When as the reading progressed the clerk
was about to omit an extract from a mes
sage by the president, Mr. Tillman objected.
It Is the most Important part," he said.
Mr. Tillman also presented Mr. Kewland's
views on the bill.
The president's message on the subject
of the recent battle between the Cnlted
States troops and Moro Insurgents In the
Sulu islands was then read and Mr. Cul

adopted by the senate al fits instance, and
Mr. Bacon replied that It could not be a

Mr. Lodge replied that so far no news

had no doubt that as soon as news was
received It would be supplied as a matter
of course.

day and sometimes all night.
"Must be consumption," think the
alarmed ones.
And of course there is always a possi
bility that they may be right.
But In most casee they're wrong; be
cause Dyspepsia Is so much more common
than consumption.
And Dyspepsia causes chronic Cough,
just like Consumption.
The dyspeptic cough. It Is well to remem
ber, can be quickly cured by Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets. ,
No need to be alarmed about it, unless
you make up your mind to neglect It.
Then, indeed, you must look out for
danger, for the Dyspeptic Cough often
grows Into a Consumptive Cough If neg
lected, by the constant lung irritation
which It causes.
So the best way is to waste no time, but
begin at once the use of these famous
little tablets, the timely use of which has
saved many a sick person from ending in
a consumptive's grave.
Remember, however. If you please, that
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will positively
NOT cure Consumption, but prevent It.
Of course, they can always be depended
on to cure all the other symptoms of indi
gestion. They are a universal cure, for one uni
versal disease.
They curs nothing else; but what they
do, they do thoroughly and well.
Btuart'a Dyspepsia Tablets are the . re
sult of the most thorough investigation Into
the inside causeu arid the cure uf Indiges
tion that i has ever, been attempted.
They have solved a problem, the answer
to which a hundred thousand physicians lu
America are today groping for In vain.
They cure the most severe, long-continued
chronic, complicated eases of Indigestion
that can be found. They are far ahead of
the njost modern medical practice, because
the most successful physicians of tho day.
In the cure of dtacasea of the digestive or
gans, are using Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
as a basis for their success.
They stoop to Stuart's to conquer.
And Stuart's lift them up out of the rut.
It. therefore, you are a victim of this
dread disease, which counts Its victims by
the million, brace up and take new heart,
for you cannot fail to cure your trouble if
you will only put your faith In this great
remedy, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
They are positively, frankly, truly, a surs
and permanent relief.
Try them.
