WASHINGTON, Jan. M.-The urgent de
)N, Jan. a.-he urg
ficiency spproprlatton bill occupied the at
tention of the housa today to the exclusion
of all other business. A surprise aas sprung
when Chairman Tawney of the appropria
tions committee warned the members that
the country was confronted with the cer
tainty of a tino.Ono.0CO deficit unless tho es
timate for the next, fiscal year should be
cut down materially. A discussion on tariff
revision was Injected Into the proceedings,
tn which leaders on both sides of the house
tried to commit one another to a definite
announcement as to whether, if successful
at the November elections, there would be
tariff legislation.
Without completing consideration of the
bill, the house, at 1:40 p. m.. adjourned.
' Tanner C alls to BUI.
Chairman Towney of the house commit
tee "on appropriations today called Trp the
urgent deficiency appropriation bill. An
agreement was reached to devote the entire
day to general debate on the measure.
Mr. Tawney said, on the fare of the esti
mates submitted to congress'for the next
fiscal year the country was confronted with
a certain deficit of llOO.OOO.Ono. The esti
mates, therefore, would have to be ma
terially revised and the figures reduced.
Mr. Tawney declared that he deemed it his
duly to call attention to this fact'ln order
that expenditures may be kept within esti
mated revenues.
. "I do not make this statement for the
purpose of exciting alarm," he said.
Mr. Tawney made Jplaln that there
would be no new appropriations this ses
sion for rivers and harbors or public build
ings, for ho .said his calculations did not
include them.
Deere la Hevenne Probable.
Mr. Mann (111.) referred to the promises
of both parties that If successful at the
next election they would revise the tariff,
and Inquired of Mr. Tawney If it was not
true that always Immediately preceding a
revision of the tariff there was a great de
cline in the 'custom receipts of the govern
ment Mr. Tawney responded that the estimates
did not take Into consideration the matter
referred to by Mr. Mann, nor the effect on
the revenues of the government resulting
from tho recent financial depression. The
estimates were made prior to the money
stringency and before the revenues began
to fall off.
"Is the gentleman ready to guarantee re
vision of the tariff, provided the republicans
prevail next November?" asked' Mr. Liv
ingston (Oa..
"No," said Mr. Tawney, "and I am not
willing to guarantee that there will be
tariff revision If the democrats preVall in
November." " ' '
After speeches by Mr. Underwood-(Ala.)
and Mr. Keefer (O.) the house adjourned.

ST. PAl'I Minn., Jan. 2-Judpe Morris
In the I'nlted States district court today
adjudged Rhrrman S. Bmlth, a well known
politician of Minneapolis, to be guilty of
contempt of court. Smith was recently ar
rested on a charge of Jury tampering In the
case of alleged fraudulent use of the malls
by the four Wood brothers and the Wis
consin Grain company and its officers The
contempt consisted In Smith's approaching
two Jurors, who were also arrested, but
later released on the government's admis
sion that It had failed to make a case
against ths Jurors.
Judge Morris scored Smith roundly and
announced that sentence would be pro
nounced this afternoon. Smith was for
two terms a member of the legislature.
Mr. Smith, who is known by a lsrgrt
number of people in Omaha, where he fre
quently comes on business missions, has
had an active career in republican politics
in Minnesota. In the legislature of 1901,
which elected Moses E. Clapp ss yie suc
cessor to the late United States Senator
Cushman K. Davis and re-elected Senator
Knute Nelson, he was leader of the Min
neapolis contingent of antl-Clapp forces,
Clapp being a St. Paul man. When, on
the fourteenth ballot. Smith saw Clapp's
election was Inevitable he made a long
stroke, when he arose and called
1 for all
Into the
the Bob Evans men to follow, him
Clapp camp, as they had followed him thus
far for Evans, and make the Clapp elec
tion unanimous. Smith s ii in ' mi "slnniili
of the house temperate ' jmuiKtee of that
session. It was the custom in those days
in Minnesota for the temperance commu
tes of each house to have charge of all re
freshments. Smith Is a large, jovial fellow,
with a smile that never comes off.

la tho West.
Western railroads converging In Omaha
csnnot find It possible, in the face of ac
tual facts and conditions, to Join their
comrades further east In a cry of "hard
times." And the belief is general In the
west that conditions are not as bad In tue
cast as. some sources represent them. '
a "The surplus of cars is not as great on
the Union Pacific aylt was December 24,"
said W. L). Lincoln ear service agent of
the Union raciflc, under whose Jurisdic
tion are all the cars of the Overland route.
White eastern railroads are represented
as suffering a continuation of loss In
(raffle western roads are not in that con
dition, so officials affirm. The tendency is
said to be up rather than down.
The Bee published a story January 17
showing that the number of Idle cars In
the 'United States December 24, when the
official report was fled, was JOS.oftO. Gen
eral Manager Huldrege of the Burlington
at that-time, commenting on tho general
situation In the railroad world, said that
while the slump In the west wss not as
great as In the east, the Burlington's
traffic had fallen off about 30 per cent as
compared with a year ago.
"1 think tho same Improved condition ex
ists on all the Nebraska .lines . as on the
Union Pacific," said Mr. Lincoln. "We
have been sending all foreign cars possible
to their lines and this has tended to cut
down the surplus. The Union Pacific has
not many idle cars. The grain movement
Is picking up right along In both Kansas
and Nebraska and there Is also consid
erable live stock moving. Colorado is also
picking up."
The Union Pacific and Burlington are
using a large number of cars for hauling
Ice. Tha latter road loaded eighty cars of
commercial Ico In one day on one of Its
branch llnea this week.
Burlington Also Gains.
O. I Dlckeson, assistant superintendent
of transportation of the Burlington, made
the statement that business on the Bur
lington seemed to be picking up consid
erable over what it was from January 1
to January 10 and over what It was wheu
the report was made December 21.
"I believe Nebraska is in about the best
condition of any of the states at the pres
ent time," said Mr. Dlckeson. "Nebraska
has both grain and live stock to offer and
these are moving because there ia a de
mand for thvvn. While we still have a
surplus of curs It 's not as great as it
Prank Walters, general manager of the
Northwestern said that business was pick

greater demand for cars, than there was a
Couple of weeks ago.
Roads to tho south are not catching up as
fast as the others because of peculiar con
ditions. Grain does not seem to be mov
ing to the south at present, but wheat and
corn are going to St. Paul, and corn to
Wisconsin. Western Nebraska is sending
corn to California, and corn is moving to
feed lots all over the country.
Wall from Mew York.
NEW YORK, Jan. M.rFigures prepared
for one of the large railroad companies,
suys the Tribune, show that U week ago
thero were 820,000 Idle freight cars In the
United States and about 8,000 locomotives
which are laid up because of the falling
off In traffic. As there are 2,2O0,CO0 freight
cars in the country, tis would show that
14 per cent of aJl the cars owned by rail
roads are storetf on railroad" tracks waiting
for loads.. Figuring the value of cars as
11,000 each and of locomotives as 116,000 each,
tho stuteinent shows that the railroads
have UlO.OnO.OiM) tied up In rolling stocks
for which there Is no present use.
Tho great shortage In rolling stock lust
year cuu.scd largo orders for cars to be
placed by railrouds. As late as last Oc
tober the reported shortage was 87,000 cars.
Estimating the average freight train at
forty cars, the K0.0U0 cars now idle would
be equivalent to 8,000 trains, for handling
each of which four men are ordinarily re
quired, so that it may be estimated that
more than 30,000 men less are needed than
If all of these cars were in service. Many
men have been laid off the New York

of this month, has In Id off enough to make
a saving of $2S0,O(i0 a rear, in addition to

many others have been placed on short

' The passing- of local option laws In Ken

Extensive Revolution Conspiracy "Un
earthed in. South.
Arrest of Ciordlanl Reveal amber
of Men Who IlaTe Been tlr
f ring (9 Tronbla In
WASHINGTON. Jam 23.-8tartllng de
velopments In the plot to overthrow the
government of President Nord In Hayti
have followed the Investigations of the
secret service agents In New Tork In con
nection with the arrest of Jose Giordanl
on the charge of counterfeiting Ilaytian
money. The officials say they have ascer
tained that the prisoner was the agent of a
formidable conspiracy whose operations
probably would have extended beyond the
limits of Haytl Into Santo Domingo and
even Into Cuba had the revolution In Haytl
been a success and the agents In New York
remained unmolested.
It was found among other things, the
secret service operatives declare, that cer
tain persons In Haytl, mostly Frenchmen
and Corslcians, and one of them a brother
of Oiordanl, -were active agents of the
alleged conspirators and were .designated
In the papers found among Glordanl's ef
fects by numbers. By careful Inquiry the
secret service men were able to connect
these numbers with the proper persons and
tho first result was to fix upon Charles
Miot, tho American consular agent at St.
Maro aa one of the persons to ' whom a
number had applied.
A great sit oae Dismissed.
t'pon learning this fact last evening the
State department Immediately cabled to
American Minister Furnlss at Port Au
Prince to dismiss this agent at once from
the employ of the United States. This ac
tion was taken because the State depart
ment feels that It must keep Itself abso
lutely free from the appearance of sympaty
with rebellious movements In Latin-Ameri
can departments.
Chief Wilkie, of the secret service, ffciade
a statement . today giving the facts apd
circumstances connected witty the arrest of
Giordan! which go to show that at the time
of his arrest Giordan! had In bis possession
counterfeit Haytlen paper money to the
face value of $800,000. 2,000 Remington rifles
and 230.030 rounds of ammunition, y all of
which, it Is said, was intended for the Hay
tlen revolutionists. Six or seven months
ago when this government was advised by
Provisional Governor Magoon that a small
party of malcontents were trying to stir
up a revolution .In Cuba, it was discovered
that Giordan! was connected with them at
that time, it developed, he had represented
General Kirman during the Haytlen up
rising In lfdl, Kirman then, as now, being
the head of the revolutionary party.
Rifles In Store.
About that time Giordanl came to New I
York and ever since then the secret service
of this country has had him under close
eurvellllance. It was not long before it
was discovered that Giordan! had stored in
Brooklyn warehouse sixteen cases con
taining 2.000 Remington rifles in fine con
dition. Close watch was kept on these
oases and on January 4, by Glordanl's di
rection, they were loaded on to a truck
and hauled to the Hamburg-American
steamship pier, whence the steamer Graecla
was to sail on January 8 for Haytlen or
otaer West Indian ports. The cases were
marked "structural iron", and ths fictitious
name' of C. Ierlam, fc .Co.. was given as
the consignee, Connives. Haytl, was given
as the destination, but the shipper's name
was withheld. Thero were subsequently
added to the consignment twenty-three bar
rels marked "cement." The officials
had become convinced that Glordani was
engaged In ome unlawful enterprise, and
the steamship company was notified not
to receive thecases of "structural Iron,"
the barrels of "cement," and some boxes
which had also made their appearance
and upon learning of this action Glordani
hadVhem hauled away to another ware
house. By that time the secret service
had secured (sufficient evidence" to war
rant them In opening all of the cases,
boxes and barrels. The first contained the
I.OCO Remington rifles, the barrels of am
munition, and the boxes I800.0CQ in coun
