drawn or killed off and others have been
added. The latest la $200,000 for the pur
chase of land near the state house and
the building of an office building, so that
the work of the state may be properly
done. No bill for completing the historical
building has yet been Introduced.
No lioad Measures.
With regard to the various highway
measures that have been Introduced the
members aeem to be all at sea. A very
large number of highway bills were put
In. Almost every member has a different
Idea as to what shall be done. As a re
sult nothing la being done and nothing
can be done until after the members re
turn from their short vacation of next
week, when they may have some more
ideas. The disposition of the leaders In
highway legislation Is to have a J Int sub
committee prepare an entirely new measuie
to get some small beginning In Vilghway
legislation. Unless this is done ths outlook
for road Improvement la not especially good.

Conspicuous Among the
WASHINGTON. Feb. 22. Senators Wil
liam itoyd Allison of Iowa and Asbury
Churchwell Latimer of South Carolina
and Representative Arlsto Wiley were
eulogised In a special session of the house
of representatives today. There were
Thirty-three speakers. Resolutions of sor
row were adopted and sent to families of
the deceased. The most interesting of the
eulogies were those on Senator Allison,
"The father of the senate."
Speaker Cannon, who does not usually
appear In the house when eulogies are be
ing delivered, spoke today on the dis
tinguished senator from Iowa, saying that
he did not want to let the opportunity pass
to say a word about htm. During the Alli
son eulogies Mr. Smith of Iowa presided.
Representative Dawson of Iowa, for alx
years private secretary to Senator Allison,
related many Inside ' facta concerning the
senator's public career,' declaring that his
service had nut been remarkable simply be
cause of Its length, but even more remark
able because of Its Importance.
"He bore a more Influential part than any
other man In all the financial legislation
from tha establishment of the national
banking system In 1864, onward to the re
sumption act of 1875, the coinage act of
1878, down to the gold standard act of 1900,
and yet, because of his unwillingness In
life to claim the credit which waa right
fully his due, his name Is popularly linked
with only one of these great fiscal meas
ures, the Bland-Allison act of 1878."
Representative Cousins, who was an In
timate friend, paid high tribute to the
senator's great intellectual powers.
Speaker Cannon said that few were as
well equipped as legislators aa waa Senator
Allison. He brought common sense Into
the legislation and did more service to
the country than perhaps any other man In
the house or senate. He said: "He rarely
wore the Mori's skin, but at times he could
demonstrate that he had the red corpuscles
In his body."
Continuing, he said that Representative
Champ Clark's words were well chosen
when he said: "Iowa will be fortunate If
It can be as well represented in the senate
as t was when Senator Allison was there."
Others who spoke on Senator Allison were
Hepburn, Hull, Birdsall, Smith, Conner,
Hubbard and Hamilton, all of Iowa, and
Champ Clark of Missouri.

The Indlan''wlth four other Indians, from
Kansas,, had .alighted from the crowded
Chesapeake & Ohio train No. I. As the
passengers ' alighted from the train the
Indian, with a warning yell, drew a long
dagger and started through the crowd,
slashing rlhgt and left.
Mrs. Devord waa nearest to the Indian,
walking up the platform with a child In
her tons. Before she could heed the warn
Ing cry raised by passengers the Indian
had burled the dagger In her back and
then slashed her across the body and arms.
Disregarding the insensible form of his
victim, the Indian next attacked Meyers,
As Meyers fell to the station platform ths
Indian ran toward Gordon. As the Indian's
blade penetrated the clothing of the victim
and entered the flesh passengers and sta
tion attaches made a concerted rush on
the madman, who struggled desperately to
free himself from thilr grasp. The dagger

slashing right and left.
"I aee no reason for such action. We shall
not make a cut unless forced to do so by
