anti-Jewish rioting at BieJyslok ia now

view of the outcry reined It la certain that
the authorities Kill not permit a renewal
of tha horrora recently witnessed at Blaly
The entire region la greatly excited owing

outbreak have bran Issued to the gov

burg. When the correspondent arrived at Blaly
stok Sunday morning tha worst waa already
over, but on all aides there waa revolting
evidence of savage bestilaltty on the part
of tha blood-drunken, mdba which Backed
and bumad tha Jewish houses, shops and
' .avals geveatr-twe Hoars.
For seventy-two . hours, with a alight
abatement during the day time, the mad
orgie of blood and pillage want on un
checked. The Inhumanity displayed would
have dona eredlt to the Mongol hordes of
Genghis Khan In 1 his conquests of. China
and Central Asia early in the thirteenth
i-entnry. At first police and troops urged
on the mob. but finally, when dismayed by
the bloody deeds accomplished, they reluc
tantly sought to obey the orders of their
superiors to put an end to tha work of the
rapacious banda af roughs who were so far
beyond control of tha local fortes that regi
ment after regiment had to be thrown Into
the' city before order could bo restored.
During th rioting tha Jewa were huntofl
down by ferocious pursuers, who, In the
majority. of cases, ware not content with
killing mora victims, but tor them to

Tha question of tha origin of tha mean
er waa carefully Investigated. . Although
many, of tha Jewa denied that a bomb waa
thrown at .the Corpus Chrietl procession
Thursday, the fact that a bomb waa thrown
waa established beyond a doubt, but tha
question of who threw the bomb remains
unsettled.. Tha accounts of Impartial wit
, aeeeea, however, demonstrate that aa in
sulting ery enraged tha Jews, who attacked
lha religions procession. Then from one and
of tha city to the other the police spread
tha report of the attack, thus fanning the
religions fanaticism of the-Christiana and
selling loose the worst elements upon the
Jewa, on whom the crowds watching the
procession had already turned. The Jewa
at . first fought with revolvers and bombs
and. with their weapons the majority of the
Christian victims were killed. But the
Jews Were soon overwhelmed and fled for
shelter, like rabbits to warrena, to cellars
or attics. The soldiers watched this chase
' and butcher', sometimes laughing with In
difference, but never falling to fire Into
house .where Jews, sometime to the nun

cuse for firing on them. The authorities

WASHINGTON. June CO. (Special

showed his mettle today In successfully

granting 20,000 acres of government laud
to the state of Wisconsin. The bill wn
Introduced in the senate by Mr. LaHolletto
and was reported to the house by Mr.
McCarthy from tho committee on public
lauds. When he called up the bill today
under suspension of the rules Mr. Mon
dell of Wyoming objected to Its passage
on the ground that it was wholly new leg
islation and creating a precedence that
might prove a boomerang for the govern
ment. Mr. McCarthy, however, showed to
the house that Mr. Mondell was not ac
quainted with the facts In the caso and
that bills of similar character were passed
In previous congresses for western states.
The house passed the bill without a dis
senting vote. Wisconsin has 300.000 acres
within the state reserve. In which is in
cluded 20,000 acres of government land.
This 20.000 acres is necessary to be set
apart as a forest reserve In order to keep
the fires from reaching the rest of the
timber and at the same time conserve the
waters of three principal feeders of the

Senator Klttredge, the giant statesmen

ended today Senator Klttredge came from
the White House with the distinct knowl
edge that the president nad determined to
appoint Elliott and Klttredge was mad.
Klttredge ia a member of tha Judiciary
committee on interoceanlc canara. Tha
belief Is general that Senator Klttredge
will oppose the confirmation of Elliott In
the senate judiciary committee and in tTia
event there is a favorable report In be
half of Elliott's confirmation It Is thought
Klttredge will take the fight to the floor.
On the other hand Senator Gamble, who
Is by no means a new hand at fighting,
will see to It that Elliott is promptly
confirmed if he can bring It about.

Wli.N FIELD, Kan.. June 20. Attorney
Genersl Hsdly of Missouri addressed an
audience of 4.000 people at the Wlnfleld
Chautauqua today on the subject "Modern
Business Methods." He said In part:
When the poeple came, as In the last
few y-ara they have come, to Investigate
the dlfTemt vlis snd abuses In the admin
istration of public affairs and In our In
dustry system, they found In a great ma
jority of cases the original source or reuse
of such evil to lie a business enterprise.
Illegal In Its plan of organisation or un
lawful In Its business methods. Not only
did the people come to realise and know
that those evlla snd abuses to which I
hsve referred were the natural and legiti
mate product of unlawful and unfair bus
iness combinations, but they csme also to
realise the manner In which such enter
prises was conducted was undermining the
characters of the men connected with them.
The moral training from employment In the
service of a business enterprise whose af
fairs hsd to be conducted by stealth,
whose code of morals Justified lying and
cheating and' the violation of every princi
ple of honor and fairness, was giving the
people the Idea that there was no standard
except that of success."
This led th Bpesker up to a review of
the Standard Oil company and the awak
ening of the public conscience to enormity
of nil forms of combinations In restraint
of trade. ,

Iteasare Goes Over latU
WASHINGTON. June . The meet In
spectlon provision of the sgrlcultural ap
propriation bill was today made the subject
of discussion In the senate. Tha quest on
came up on a motion by Senator Proctor to
grant the conference rnu.-tod by th hoti!
and speeches were made by Messrs Prpctor,
Beverldge and Lodge against som features
of the house amendment and by Senator
Warren In opposition to drastic legislation.
Mr, Lodge took occasion to defend Ameri
can morals as quit as good as those of
Europe. The bill went pver without ac
tion. There wer two apeechea on th
Panama canal, one by Senator Morgan lti
support of the sea level plan and the other
by Senator Perkins in opposition.
The senate held Its first night session,
which was devoted to the consideration
of the sundry civil appropriation bill.
Meat Bill Is Called i'p.
Senator Proctor today .called up the
agriculture bill and mutle th usual mu
tton for agreement to the request for a
conference. He then made a statement
concerning the house substitue for the
meat Inspection bill, aaylng that thern
were two essential points of difference be
tween the two houses. One of these he
said was the omission by the house of
the senate provision requiring that the
date of inspection be placed on cans con
taining meat and the other the transfer
of the cost of th Inspection from th
packers to the national treasury. Speaking
of the latter change ha said that It was
radical and. In his opinion, unwise and
advised that the house amendment on that
polnt be not accepted. The packers could,
he declared, afford the expense of an ad
vertisement, for, looked at In that light,
the government certificate would bo of Im
mense benefit. Mr. Proctor also charged
that the numerous protests which hsve
been coming to the" senate on this sub
ject have a common origin In Chicago and
In support of his statement . read a num
ber of protests to show the language to
be practically th same wherever they
may be dated.
Beverldge Senaewhat Pleased.
Senator Reverldge agreed with Mr. Proctor
a to the unwisdom of the house change
In the matter Of date of labels and ' oont '
of inspection, but expressed gratification
that the ' provision for night surveillance
had been retained. The two essential
changes he considered aa moat Important,
declaring that If the date Is not to be used
It will be possible to 'pass oft aa fresh
meat that which may hava been Inspected
five years ago. He said. that th dat Is
stamped on meat shipped abroad and
argued that the same plan should be pur
sued with reference to meat consumed at
"Why," he asked, "should th people pay
for th packers' inspection and not the -packers
themselves?" snd, agreeing with
Mr. Proctor, aaid the government stamp
would be - worth $8,000.0u0 or $10,000,000 for
advertising purposes. Looking at the mat
ter In that light, th cost of Inspection
would not be a burden, beoaue th in
spection would be a great benefit. The cost
would at the most be Infinitesimal, 8 cent
per head for cattle and ( cant for swine.
It would be Impossible for packers to In
crease th price of . meat or decrease that
stock on acoount of thla alight charge,
hence the alarm on thla account was
groundless. The charge should be paid out
of the profits of the packer themselves
and neither by the government, th stock
grower or th consumers.
Bill May Be InadeqaatO,
He predicted that the house appropria
tion would be Inadequate to meet all the
demands on It, whll the small fe system
provided for by the senate would adjust
Itself to the demands upon It. H pointed
out that national banks pay for their In
spection, as do oleomargarine manufactur
ers, snd even Immigrants coming Into the
United States. Hence the proposition Is
not novel. If, he said, the plan Is to be
changed, there will be a vast drain on th
treasury, and predicted that $10,000,000 a
year, would at once be required for meat
Inspection alone. He eald th packers alone
are responsible for th agitation that ha
been aroused, but predlrted that In the
end the result would b a restoiatlon of
confidence and therefore beneficial. He
credited th prospective success of the
measur to th president, who had stood
firmly from th beginning for th most
complete Inspection bill on th statute
books of sny country.
I.odgo for leaate Provision.
Senator Lodge also spoke for tha senate
provision, although h said It might he
considered "audacious to do so In view
of the announcement that the house had
perfected the measure and the president
hsd accepted It." He pleaded especially
for the dating of labels, because the pub
lic has the right to know what It I buy
ing. 'He did not agree that the producers
and the consumers would not feel the
effect of the tax, for, judging tha future
by the past, the packers would find In
a tax of a few mills sn excus for sn
increase of several cents a pound n th
meat they sell, and a similar decresse on
the stock they buy. Nevertheless, he
though the packers should pay the cost.
He charged the Chicago packers with try
ing to defeat the legislation.
Koropraa Attaek Mot Alarming.
Th attack from Europe did not alarm
Mr. ' I.odge very much, for he said that
practices In foreign countries are no Whit
better than our own. He read newspaper
extracts to show that in England rotten
egg are used In making pastry and fev
ered cattle are butchered for beef and
also quoted an article from an English
review to show that morals In that country
are not all they should be.
Discussing the group of men In control
of th pecking industry iSr. Lodge said
their history had been of utier defiance of
law and public opinion . He referred to a
recently-puhltuhed Interview with Nelson
Morris. Jn which thja.greai-pa-cker how.l
