P. Bherwood. now of Portland, Ore., form
erly of Beaver City, Neb., has written a
letter to Congressman Hlnshaw statins
that Coughner Is his nephew, that he has
known him all his life until recently and
that ho rerkons him as a "good, honest,
hardworking American boy." He states
In his letter to Mr. Hlnahaw that Repr--entative
Norrls of Nebraska and Repre
sentative Victor Murdork of Kansas, have
been doing what they could In the matter,
but -the American consul W. W.' Mills, who
was appointed from Texas, htm done noth
ing toward securing them a fair trial.'
From a report filed by Mills It appears the
conviction of the men was had under one
of nhe. penal .statutes of Chihuahua. which
provides in substance that where three or
.more persons are together and a homicide
occurs the survivors may be punished by
Imprisonment, even though there" may be
no direct and positive evidence as to who
Inflicted the fatal wounds, unless It could
be shown to the satisfaction of the court
how the killing was dtyie. Both prisoners
maintain their Innocence and demand that
their rights as American oltliena be re
spected. o Increase for Clerka.
Captain II. B. Palmer left for Omaha to
day. Before leaving Mr. Palmer stated
he had endeavored to bring about the pro
motion of a number of clerks In his office,
' but that he had failed to connect. He said
It waa too bad .that the salary of clerks
could not be' Increased to a fair figure,
but that ha would continue to pull for the
men In the Omaha office until results were
obtained.

WABTnNGTON, April 28, The generally
xpreased opinion about the senate today
s that an agreement to vote on the railroad
rate bill be secured early next week, and
by common consent the vote Is fixed for
some time during the week beginning May
The request for the naming of a day
will be repeated early next week and It
was said that those who had been opposing
a vote would not longer seek delay. The
final vote on the bill Itself will be preceeded
by debate of several days' duration on the
amendments to the bill. The reasons given
for predicting an early vote' are that the
debate la practically exhausted and that
there Is strong pressure from the houso
of representatives, whose members are
anxious to bring the session to an end In
order that they may have opportunity to
give attention to their campaigns for re
election.
Indian Bill la Faased.
The senate today passed the Indian ap
propriation bill. - Several hours were de
voted to spirited debate ,on the question of
removing the reVjxlctions.trom the allotted
lands of the Chock taws,' Cherokee, Chlc.-
asaws and Semlnoles', except on full-bloods.
After an amendment was offered and
amended to suit those who favored it a
point of order was made against the pro
vision and sustained by the vice president.
Mr. Bpooner woa the particular champion
of the Indian In preventing the removal
of the restrictions, but Messrs. Teller, Long
and others who favored the amendment
charged that he was misguided In his teal
and the Indians themselves wanted to. be
permitted to seek a market for their surplus
lands. Mr. Bailey argued that the removal
of the reetrictlons was In the Interests of
the white settler and the future of Okla
homa and Indian Territory depended upon
getting farmers on these lands before the
price became too high for the settlers to
buy. The appeal had no effect on Mr.
Bpooner,. who said the entire argument ap
peared to be for the white man, with noth-
ng for the Indian.
When the senate met today a' bill provid
ing for the. purchase of land In Washington
as sites for buildings for the Departments
of Btate, Juntlce and Commerce waa pasted,
It appropriates 13,000,000.
A bill authorizing the Kansas City, St.
Joseph & Excelsior Springs railroad to
bridge the Missouri river at Kansas City
waa paased.

The chief engineer, John F.- Stevens, re
ceives the same amount, but It Is the
Intention of the committee not to disturb

OHIO AFTER STANDARD OIL
Seventeen Companies ed at Toledo
in Proceeding's to Oast
from State.
TOLEDO. O., April 28.-Alleg1ng that the
Standard Oil . company and seventeen
affiliated companies have a secret trade
agreement by which they control' the pro.
ductton and sale of oil and gas
Prosecutor L. W. Waehenheimer of Lucas
county today filed suit In the circuit court
asking revocation of their charters and
dissolution of -the Illegal agreement. . In
addition to the Standard, the following
corporations are named . as defendants:
The Lake Shore Michigan Southern,
Toledo & Ohio Central, Hocking . Valley
Railroad company. Standard Oil company
of Ohio, Indiana, New York and New Jer
sey; Buckeye Pipe Line company. Solar
Refining company, ' Ohio Oil company
Northwestern Ohio National. Gas company.
Union Tank company of Pennsylvania, In
diana Pipe Une company of Indiana, the
National Transit company of New Jersey,
Pennsylvania Oil company of Pennsylva
nla and the South Penn Oil company of
Pennsylvania.
In the peUtion It Is alleged that the
production of oil was reduced fur the pur.
pose of increasing the price to the con
sumers. It is set up that thla reduction
amounts to 60 per cent, while the price
of gas to the consuming public increased
100 per cent. Reference to - the alleged
trade pact Is sensational enough that the
charge, is made that the companies named
as defendants have bound themselves not
to sell or transport oil or gas below a cer
tain standard rate.
Queries are directed In the petition to
the railroad companies' presidents asking
them whether rebates are given directly
or indirectly to the oil companies and
whether the oil concerns have not been
given pipe line rights on the railroads.
It developed this afternoon that Prose.
cutor Waehenheimer filed the suits against
the Standard Oil and other companies on
behalf of Attorney General Ellis. This is
especially significant, together with the
announcement from the prosecutor that
the case will be prosecuted with all possl
ble dispatch. The fact that the state Is
behind tha Toledo prosecuting attorney In
the action gives it strength which other
wise it would nqt possesa.
Judge Shaufelberger of tha law firm of
Doyle' &. Lewis, which represents a ma
joiity of the .companies named, as de
fendants, this afternoon announced that
tho case will be fought to the bitter end
by. the corporations named as defendants.
"We will be there to meet tha Issues when
they come up," he emphatically declared.
"You can Inform the public that the case
will not go by default. Further than that
I can say nothing in the absence of forma.1
notlca of the case."
