la Laaded In Penitentiary.
PHILADELPHIA, June 1 Twenty years
of hard labor In solitary confinement In the
eastern penitentiary was the sentence pro
nounced today on John Joseph Kean, the
abductor of little Freddie Muth. The enor
mity of the man's crime, which had aroused
the whole city, stirred the officers of the
law to quick action and the swiftness with
which Justice moved has never been
equale In this community. Kean foil into
the clutches of the law yesterday after
noon about the time the courts were clos

he was photographed and measured by the
Bertllllon method. Twenty-five minutes
later he had been arraigned before a mag
istrate and committed fo court without
ball. The grand Jury found n true bill and
at 11:20 a. in. he waa In the criminal court
awaiting his turn to face Judge Sulzberger.
Shortly after 13 o'clock the Judge passed
sentence upon him and at 1:30 o'clock the.
Iron doors of the penitentiary closed behind
him. In his quick trip from liberty to the
solitude of the Cherry Hill, the institution
which Dickens made famous In his Ameri
can notes by, condemning Its system of
solitary confinement, no friendly hand or
voice was raised In the prisoner's behalf.
If he behaves himself his sentence, under
the law. will be reduced to twelve years
and three months. The court hod the
power to give him a life sentence.
Mark Sympathy for Family.
Much sympathy Is expressed for the wife
and three children Kean leavea without
support. Mrs. Kean Is prostrated by the
shock and disgrace that the abduction has
brought upon the family. She will brenk
up her home and remove to New Tork.
where she has relatives.
"Had I disposition of this case I Would
summon a large number of mothers here
and turn you over to their tender mercies,
but as the law fixes the penalty for crimes
like yours I can do nothing but commit
you without ball for the action of the
grand jury on the charge of kidnaping."
These words were addressed by Magis-
trat. Elsenbrown to John Joseph Kean. the
abductor of Albert Muth, the 7-year-old
boy, who, with his captive, was discovered
yesterday after a six days' search In a
vacant house In West Philadelphia. It waa

of Detectives Donaghy went before the

for an Indictment. District Attorney Bell
said he would do everything in hla power to
facilitate the trial of Kean.
The magistrate's office was crowded and
muttered threats could be heard when the
prisoner was placed in the dock. Many of
the spectators were women.

Plaa to Lend Money to
WASHINGTON, June 1. A tacit
agreement was reached today by the pres-
Secretary Shaw and the 'Ration
of representative citizens of Son Fran

given San Francisco by the government.
It Is proposed the United States deposit
with the Pan Francisco banks $12,000,000
of the government money with bonds of
the city as security for the deposit, the
money to remain with the banks until
such time as the government shall call
for It. This may not be for a number of
years, so that the banks have practical
assurance that they may retain the de
posits for such a period as will be of
value In the reconatructlon of the city.
Under the law the secretary of ths
treasury has authorltf- to deposit govern
ment funds In this w'y. He can not, of
course, bind his successor to leave the
money oa deposit, bt he himself may
leave If until It Is neSded by the -government.'

several million dollars, composed of prom

(From a Staff Correspondent).
WASHINGTON. June 19.-(Speclal Tele
gram ) Judge Klnkald secured the eye of
the spesker today to call up his bill grant
ing to ths village of Crawford about 135
acres of the military reservation adjacent
to Crawford for park purposes. This be
ing suspension day. Judge Klnkald put his
best foot forward In order to avoid a di
vision on the passage of the measure.
Mr. Gilbert of Kentucky started out In
dead opposition to the bill, but by the
time he had all his questions answered he
subsided, although not convinced thst the
bill should pass. In reply to a question
of Mr. Gilbert, Judge Klnkald said there
was plenty of land n that locality and
there would be a great deal to spare after
the 135 acres were taken out. He stated
there were 15,000 acres In the military res
ervation and that for a great many years
the village of Crawford had used this lnnd
through a license granted by the secre
tary of war. Up to this time the village
had never deemed it advisable to make
permanent Improvements In the park; first,
because It was not In a position to do ao.
and, second, because the town felt It would
not be warranted In doing anything on ac
count of the uncertainty that the license
might at any time be revoked. But now.
as the village has taken on new !lfo and
the town was growing, It felt it oufcht to
have the land outright. Judge Klnkald
said It was particularly adapted to park
purposes on account of Its scenic char
Mr. Gilbert: "I will withdraw my ob
jection with the mental reservation thnt
you are not entitled to the property at all."
Judge Klnkald: "All right, I yield to you
the mental reservation in consideration of
1344 acres of the military reservation." and

Elliott Lands With Gamble.
Senator Gamble, who has returned from
South Dakota, greatly elated over the
work of the convention and hla renomlna
tlon, wss at ths White House today, talk
ing over matters in relation to federal
patronage. As a result of the interview
he authorized the announcement to be made
that James D. Elliott would be appointed
to the position of United States attorney
for South Dakota. The contest over the
federal patronage in South Dakota started
last December on this particular position,
Senator Gamble standing for the reappoint
ment of Mr. Elliott, while Senator Klt-
tredge, Congressmen Martin and Burke
recommended the appointment of A. C.
Blernatzkl. In order to make the right
for Senator Gamble, Mr. Elliott resigned
the position about two months ago and
was not a candidate for reappointment, ex
cept as made so by Senator Gamble. It
Is understood the president, on his own
initiative, tendered the position to Senator
Gamble for Mr. Elliott. Before Senator
Gamble's return It was stated an effort
would be made by other members of the
delegation to effect some sort of an agree
ment or some basis of adjustment In the
matter of federal patronage In the stato.
From indications since Gamble's return
there seems little likelihood of the two
factions getting together.
Drlscoll Mnst Stay In Xavy.
Senator Millard has been endeavoring to
secure the discharge of Arthur P. Drlscoll
of South Omaha, a yeoman In the United
States navy. He has not been auccessful.

senator that he could not grant the re
quest, quoting an order of the president
which forbids the discharge of soldiers or
sailors. for any cause except disability until
the terms of enlistment shall have ex

because the mother of the young sailor Is
In precarious health and desires to have

oppose the bill Increasing the appropria
tion for a national guard. No one has
been more persistent In urging its passage
than General Culver, adjutant general of
the Nebraska National Guard. A week ago
he called upon tha Nebraska delegation to
make a final effort to get the bill through
congress. Kennedy nd Pollard went to the
front, getting Senator 'Hemenway of
Indiana lntereated, through Senator Mil
lard's Influence, and It was passed in the
upper body without any difficulty whatso
ever. The house was then canvassed and

F0NTANELLES FEAR ORDER
Braree of the Wlawnm Dread F.lfect
of Rotation Under Compulsion
from the Conrt,
The Fontanelle governors held a pro
longed session Tuesday night, the seance
being exclusively executive, with Incidental
accessories of rlnret and cigars. The ques
tion of the forthcoming primaries was dis
cussed, but no definite conclusion could be
reached as to the most effective method
for rapturing the entire delegation for the
Fontanelle's preferred csndidate for sen
ator. It was conceded that the Rose water
delegation had a long start In the game,
and with the plan now pursued by the
Rosewater committee In keeping the names
of the delegation before thf public, the
court's order Is likely yet to prove a boom
erang against the sponsors of ths rotation
method of placing the ticket.
The project of resuscitation the Municipal
Record with the ostensible purpose of
familiarizing the public with the Fontan
elle ticket was diHcussed. but some doubts
were expressed as to the expediency of
such a move, owing to the fact that the
Municipal Record endorsement of a ticket
might Invite too active hostility and give
the voters too strong a hunch against a
ticket they might want to defeat. The mat
ter was left open until the next secret
nkcetlng of the governors, when It is
thought that some plan may be Incubated
that will secure the election of st least a
part of the Fontenelle delegation. The har
mony that prevailed at the meeting was of
the strained variety and great quantities
of claret were quaffed as a substitute for
oil to quiet the threatening storm.
The general consensus of opinion among
the more conservative members was that
in insisting upon the rotation feature of
the delegate ticket a serious mistake has
been made, and that Instead of helping
the Fontanelle delegation means Its certain
defeat. There was a suppressed feeling
of unrest and uncertainty all through the
meeting. Nothing waa accomplished other
than the realization of the fact, that the
Fontanelles are hard against It, and with
the desertion from Its rsnks of many
hitherto faithful, there Is very little com
fort In the future. One of the attendants
at the meeting volunteered the observation
that: "The serious mistake we have made
Is In getting too much World-Herald Into
the Fontanelle delegation. It looka too
much as If we were trying to purchase
favor with the World-Herald, and that the
Fontanelles were simply auxiliaries to the
TWO MARE'S NESTS DUG UP
Ko . Foundation for Tales Abont The
- Bee and Its F.dltor Played
Vp In the W.-H.
"The World-Herald must be In hard lines
for sensations when it hss to dig up mare's
nests around the Bee building. No one
ever dreamed of denying that the city hall
boilers were drawn on for ton days for
steAm while The Bee building boilers were
undergoing repairs," sold Victor Rose
water. "That'a why we got permission to
do so from the mayor. We made our own
connections and furnished our own fire
man and used our own coal so that the city
was not only out nothing but got the bene
fit of some of our steam. We have done
this two or three times by permission of
the city authorities, and we have helped
out the city hall once or twice on power
or current. It Is simply the reciprocity
of neighbors and we stand ready to lend
our steam plant to the city whenever the
city hall machinery gets out of order, which
is liable to happen any time, just as we
hel;. out the World-Herald when It runs
short of print paper or vice versa.
"The second yarn about . Edward Roae
water cutting short his trip abroad on ac
count of local politics has even less foun
dation. Mr. Rosewater made steamship
arrangements for his return passage at
the time nf his outgoing voyage and has
not varied his plans In this respect one
lota. He counted all along to be home
by the first of July, and that Is ons reason
why I had the primaries set forward where

WASHINGTON, June 19. -With practical
unanimity the house today adopted the
substitute amendment for the Reverldge
amendment to the agricultural appropria
tion bill relating to meat Inspection, the
objectionable features of former amend
ments being eliminated and the amendment
perfected to meet the wishes of the presi
dent. An effort was made to extend the
time of debate, but Air. Wadsworth. chair
man of the committee on agriculture, de
siring to get the bill Into conference as
soon as possible, objected. After the adop
tion of the amendment the bill was sent
to conference, the conferees being Mr.
Wailsnorth, Mr. Scott (Kan.) and Mr.
Immediately after the disposition of the
agricultural appropriation bill a large num
ber of bills were passed under suspension
of the rules.
Through the efforts of Mr. Champ Clark
of Missouri and Mr. Williams of Mississippi
the bill known as the subsidiary sliver
coinage measure fulled of securing enough
votes to pass under the rule.
Meat Bill Taken Up.
"I move to suspend the rules, discharge
the committee of the whole house on the
state of union from the consideration of the
senate amendments to the agricultural ap
propriation bill, disagree to all the amend
ments except No. 29 (the meat Inspection
amendment), to concur In amendment No.

the committee on agriculture and nsk for
a conference with the senate on the dis
Interest was shown In every part of the
house today when Mr. Wadsworth made
the above motion soon after reporting the
agricultural appropriation with the com
promise amendment relating to meat In
spection. Mr. Williams of Mississippi, the minority
leader, amight to have the time of debate
extended to forty minutes for each side
Instead of twenty under the rule. Mr.
Wadsworth said he regretted that ho could
not comply with the request, and the read
ing of the meat Inspection amendment was
begun, nearly every member present fol
lowing the reading with bill in hand. Mr.
Wadsworth, In explaining the ohanges
made In the substitute for ths original
meat Inspection amendment, said that the
changes were mostly In verbiage and then
took them up seriatim. He called atten
tion to the elimination of the court .re
view clause and the date of inspection.
Farmers Tt'ot Affected.
Mr. Olmsted called attention to one sec
tion of the amendment, providing that on
and after October 1, 1906, no peraon, firm
or corporation shall transport or offr for
transportation and no carrier or Interstate
or foreign commerce shall transport or re
ceive for transportation from one stale or
territory or the District of Columbia U
any other stats or territory or the Dis
trict of Columbia "any carcasses of meat
or meat food products unless marked In
spected and paased," and In another por
tion of the amendment the provisions of
the act requiring Inspection "shall not ap
ply to animals .slaughtered by any farmer
on the farm and sold and transported aa
Interstate or foreign commercs."
He wanted to know how thess two seo
Mr. Wadsworth replied that the com
mon carrier need not inquire. He knows
when a farmer gives him a carcass for
shipment that tha 'inspection feature of
the amendment la waived. Mr. Wadsworth
then facetiously took up small changes
In the verbiage inadvertently saying "They
Inserted" In one or two cases, but amid
laughter (hanging the statement to "we
Inserted." "If it soothes the feelings or
certain Individuals I am perfectly willing
that they all shall go in," aaiil he.
He explained that the ctvll service
was put In the original house bill to ex
pedite the work but that It went out be
cause It was not thought necessary.
Mr. Lamb (Va.), the ranking member
of the minority of ths agricultural com
mittee. Insisted that the bill wss defective
In that the government waa obliged to pay
the cost of Inspection. It waa his opinion
that the cost should be borne by tha pack
ers. Humor of Williams.
Mr. Williams (Miss.) enlivened the de
bate by calling attention to tne different-
of opinion between two sons of New York
I (ths president and Mr. Wadawurth;
"Now Is the winter of our discontent
made glorious summer by this son of New
Yoik," said Mr. Williams, which caught
the humor of ths house.
In a semi-humorous vein Me. Williams
We must, under the rules of the house,
vole this proposed leglnlatlon up Just a It
