WASHINGTON, April 2. -The activity of j

Although Mr. Love told the committee
t day he had not previously mentioned the
convoraallon to anybody, because he feared

whs unanimous In tho opinion that 'the

"Do you mean that the weekly meant to
bribe him?" asked Mr. Madison of the
"No, not to bribe Mm, but to pay him,"
replied the witness. .
"You draw a whole lot finer distinctions
than I have been able to do," retorted Mr.
The committee betrayed great Interest
and pressed Mr. Love for details of the
meeting. The witness said he saw Mr.
Dudley for not more than three minutes,
and Dudley had said he wanted to go to

WASHINGTON. April 2 Assistant Sec
retary N'nrton of the Treasury department,
calling attention today to the Increase In
the treasury balance of about $7,000,000 dur
ing the last ten days of March, says It is
evident that the Payne-Aldrlch tariff law
Is an excellent producer of revenue, but.
he adds, certain considerations should be
borne In mind.
Mr. Norton says:
"It is more than probable that customs
revenues for the first part of this fiscal
year were largely affected by anticipatory
Importations and by considerations which
grew out of the maximum and minimum
feature of the Payne-Aldrlch law.
"Furthemore. the fact must not be over
looked that the legislation which resulted
In. giving to the Cherokee Indian tribe a
payment of approximately $.".,tXX).000 has now
passed through the court of claims, and this
payment must be made before the close of
the year."
Maryland House
Passes Digges Bill
Measure Which Disfranchises Ne
groes Will Soon Become
a Law.
ANNAPOLIS, April 2. The so-called
Dlgges bills for the disfranchisement of
the negro In all states and municipal elec
tions In Maryland were passed by the sen
ate at a late hour last night, following
their introduction earlier at the night ses
sion. They now go to the house, where
their passage Is assured because of the
large democratic majorities.
It is not proposed to attempt to prevent
negroes voting at congressional or presi
dential elections, the restriction applying
only to state and municipal balloting.
The original draft of the plan was
amended by the Insertion of a clause by
which negroes owning property assessed at
$00 may vote, provided they were possessed
of property thus valued two years In ad
vance of their registration.
It Is proposed to amend the present regis
tration laws; to have a new general regis
tration next year refusing registration to
negroes and to abolish spring elections in
Baltimore, carrying forward those elections
until the state election In the November
following. Being refused registration if
the bills are enacted, the negro will
able to vote on the measures when they
come before the electors in November, 1911,
In the form of a constitutional amendment.
The democrats did not Insert the property
qualification In the registration bill because,
they say, they will conduct the election
under the state constitution, from i ' wulcb.
they claim, the - word "white" -has never
been expunged by any act of the state.

States, were returned late yesterday by
the federal grand Jury of the District of
Columbia on evidence which agents of the
Department of Justice have been gathering
for more than a year.
The indictments were withheld yester

Baker of the District of Columbia, Special
Assistant Attorney General A. Bruce R.
Claskl and Chief Flnoh of Attorney Gen
eral Wlckersham's bureau of Investigation
have been presenting the evidence to the
grand jury for several daya.
The theory of the conspiracy indictments
is that every man connected in any way
with . the operation of the three firms
which do business In the district had en

of their money. The government main

Are Serious Questions.
The first four will receive serious and
earnest consideration. The bills on the last
named one are likely to be lost In the gen

number of bills pending In congress upon
all of these subjects and how best to
harmonize them and arrive at some mutual
basis is the question. President Taft will
be drawn Into the fight and today he In
formed some of the members of the com
mittoe he desired to talk with them next
week in the Interests of harmony.
In the committee the republican mem
bers are split upon the question of
whether to validate all past withdrawals
of public lands, about which there Is a
doubt of legality, or to yeave that to a
future determination by the courts.
Representatives Pickett of Iowa, Par
sons of New York and Oronna of North
Dakota, all republicans, are standing
firm for a validation of all past with
drawals. Chairman Mondell of the . com
mittee and Representatives Smith of Cal

of Montana are oposlng the effort to
validate past withdrawals.
Their objection, they say. Is that thou
sands of people have taken up coal and
oil lands and expended large sums In de
velopment In the belief that the govern
ment withdrawals were Illegal. Unless
these claimants are cared for they will
oppose a validation of the withdrawals.

Well Known Bohemian Editor Suc
cumbs After Four Months' Illness.
Had Been Active Until the Slekness
Overtook Him Which Reunited
In Ills Death Saturday
' Evening.
John Roslcky, editor of the , Osveta
Amerika, one of the prominent Bohemian
publications of this city and state, died
yeaterday evening- at 6:30 at his home,
1015 William street. He had been ailing
for about four months. His medical at
tendant was Dr. Slmanek and Drs. Coul
ter and Dunn were called in consultation.
Mr. Rosloky was 04 years of ago and had
been a prominent figure In Bohemian cir
cles In . Nebraska for over thirty yer
He was an ardent believer and advocHle
o f healthful physical exercise and early
took a conspicuous part in the organisa
tion of the Bohemian athletic associa
tions of Nebraska and the transmlseouri
country, and the success of these organ
izations tqday Is due very largely to his
genius and enthusiasm.
He was a man of broad and liberal tem
perament and did not hesitate to express
himself on great public topics, not merely
through the newspapers with which he was
associated, but on the stump as well. Prior
to his connection wtth the Osveta Amerika
he was the proprietor of the Pokrok
Zapudu, the weekly republican periodical
that was established In Omaha in 1S71 by
the late Edward Rosewater, and whlgh
publication has today the largest circula
tion, probably, of any Bohemian paper In
the United States.
John Roslcky and the late Edward Rose
water were always ardent friends, and
men who possessed a peculiar unanimity
of views. During the famous anti-prohibition
campaign of 18M Mr. Roslcky stumped
the state against prohibition, speaking in
practically every Bohemian community In
the state. The effect of bis eloquence was
manifest in these communities when the
returns came in. ' He was In no sense a
radical in his views or expressions, and
'even In the stronger prohibition localities
where he Bpoke he was given credit for
slncrlty and a broadness of view that was
accorded few other speakers representing
that side of the question.
Juhn Roslcky wus born In Bohemia in
1846. He came to Omaha In 18S0, and at
once entered into Its business activities, in
which 'he thereafter continued until, like
his friend, Kdward Rosewater, he died
1 In the harness.
Few men in Omaha were more widely
known and esteemed than John Roslcky.
He was a member of the Bohemian lodge
of the Western Fraternal union, and was
also a member of the Bohemian Turners, of
which latter organization he was the vir
tual founder.
He Is survived by his widow and two
sons. Of the latter, Walter has been as
sociated with his father In the newspaper
business for many years. John O. Is con
nected with the Nebraska Telephone com
pany, aa electrician.
At the conclusion of the church services
the body was taken to Mount Muncle and
laid to rest. On hla last visit to Leaven
worth Justice Brewer went to the cemetery
and with the sexton, visited the graves of
his loved ones. After a few moments con
templation he turned to the sexton and
pointing to a spot by the side of his wife,
"Sexton, lay me there"; and It was in
this spot that the grave was dug.
The men selected for active pallbearers
were Judge William C. Hook, Judge Wil
liam Dill, Mayor Omar Abernathy, Lea
Bond, Hon. Edward Carroll and William
The honorary pallbearers were Paul Ha
vens, Judge H. W. Ids, Arthur Simmons.
William Booth, O. B. Taylor, W. N. Todd,
A. B. Havens, George Hharrltt, Dr. W. W.
Walter, Edgar Hopkins, Thomas p. Fenlon,
Eugene Lysle and W. T. Hewitt.
When the funeral party arrived from the
east the relatives of Justice Brewer re
quested that no display be attempted and
the plan to escort the body to the church
was abandoned.
The relatives also requested that the ser
vices at tha grave be private.
