WASHINGTON. Feb. 8. - (Speclal.)
Representatlve Sloan mado his debut as
a full fledged member of tho agricultural
committee today In a speech brlstlln'g
with facts and figures having relation
to tho appropriation to' make demonstra
tions and otherwise aid the stntcs In tho
eradication of hog cholera. This came In
tho form of an amendment to tho agri
cultural bill now under consideration,
growing out of a Bill Introduced by Mr.
Sloan last August.
While tho appropriation of $13,000 was
not as large ,as ho had hoped for, he
felt that it was un excellent beginning.
During tho program of tho debato on
tho bill, Representative Fowler of 1111'
nols, branded the American meats of
commerce as filthy and unhealthy. Mr.
Sloan took strong exception to this stato
ment, declaring "American meats as pre
pared for commerce were generally care
fully and scientifically inspected and pre
sented clean uhd healthful to tho con
sumers at home and abroad; lind It came
with exceeding bad grace from the
gentleman from Illinois to Blander tho
largest and most valuable production of
our great agricultural industry, when tho
means for informing himself were Im
mediately at hand In evidence taken be
fore the committee .of expenditures in
the agricultural department."
The statement brought rounds of ap
plause from both sides of tho chamber.
Women Sell Apples

CHICAGO, Feb. 8. Club women who re
cently conducted an egg sale went into
the applo business today und It was an
nounced tonight that about 30,000 barrels
had been disposed of. The sale will con
tinue tomorrow. .'
The apples were on sale in about hp.lt
the grocery stores of Chicago. No money
was Invested by the women, but they ar
ranged the buying and selling prices and
took orders for apples.
All apples were sold at less than the
price which has been asked for them by
retail dealers In the last few weeks. Many
apples are said to be In cold storago
awaiting a, rise in price and it. was this
condition which caused the women to
start tho sales.
Evory woman's heart responds to
the charm and sweetness of a baby's

nature of a mother shrinks from tho
ordeal because such a time Is usually

, The scene In Secietary Fisher's office

I his colleagues In unmeasured teims. em

' one point Crawfod hinted at corruption,
j Secretary Fisher Bald he had been
I through" these controversies beforo and
j was not altogether without experience In
I considering them; ho understood how
; politics enters Into them, and ho said
that about all he could say for the case
. before him was that It had lent Interest
to whnt otherwise might have been n
very dull afternoon. Ab to acting In the
1 matter, the secretary said he first would
to do In tho way of extending Its line to
Carter. He did not think It would bo
wise to nntlclpate the building of tho ex
tension. He will learn definitely from tho
president of the road. Secretary Fisher
said tho mere fact that Home interest
or sony individual would bo benefited by
the location of thp land office nt a cer
tain point would not deter him from lo
cntlng It at that point If he was con
vinced that this point wns the proper
place for It.
The hearing was the result of a letter
written Janunry 21 by Senator Crawford
to Secretary Fisher In which tho senator
snld he understood that tho proposed lo
cation of the land office nt Carter wns
to be a reward to tho sons of Frank D.
Jackson, former governor of Iowa, for
nn alleged attempt to defeat Dean Ster
ling for tho United States senate, and
that Senator Gamble and Representatives
Burke and Martin would un'JL- In an f
fort to bring this about. Senator Craw
ford sent n copy of this letter to Presi
dent Taft, saying, "I think you ought to
know whnt tho real Influences nre back
of a scheme of this kind."
In his communication to Secretary
ITIsher, Senator CrawfoiM snld ho had re
ceived Information regnrdlng tho pro
posed establishment of a new land
office at Carter, and he considered It his
duty to protest ngnlnst tho making ,of
such an order. This wns In view, ho
snld, of tho kind of Influences which hnva
been brought to bear In tho matter. Tho
"The Interest of a few townslto boom
ers and the Interest of the Chicago &
Northwestern Railway company have In
this particular coso been coupled with the
political Interest of my colleague, Mr.
Gamble, a candidate for re-election to the
sonato. Thoso Interests have been united
so closely In the matter aw to put upon
It a character which tho department enn
not afford to recognize and sanction."

Secretary Fisher nt the request of
Senator Oamblo called tho hearing for
this afternoon and also at the request, In
vited Senator Crawford nnd Representa
tive Burke and Mnrtln to bo present.
Senator Gamble mado a brief opening
statement, pointing out upon a map of
South Dnkota, the location of Carter
and saying It. would ho moro convenient
to tho new land that will bo opened to
settlement than Gregory, and that Cham
berlain had outlived Its usefulness as a
location for a land office. Ho denied tho
Imputations ngulnst himself contained In
the letter of Senator Crawford and said
he had not been a candldato for tho
senate beforo the legislature.

Senator Crawford said there was
nothing In tho letter ho desired to retract
Ho declared the Jackson Bros.' wholo
scheme was a bunko gamo and that
Jackson Bros, were In cahoots with ths
Northwestern road. The movement (s a
conspiracy, tho Benatnr continued, to dl.
regard the rights of the people who will
bo living there long after the promotors
have "folded their tents liko tho Arabs"
and silently stolen away. As to Carter,
the sonator said It contained a fow
stragglers, possibly ten people, Including
half breeds, It Is located, he snld, seven
teen miles across the burning prairie
from a railroad.
Representative Burke said there was
no foundation for the statements con
tained In Senator Crawford's letters. He
knew the Jacksons were high class busi
ness men who had done a great deal
toward developing the Rosebud country,
Mnrtln Nut In It.
Mr. Martin declared Senator Craw
ford's mention of his name In connection
with this mutter had been purely
gratuitous. No one had talked with him
about this land office,
Senator Gamble, following Mr. Martin,
said Senator Crawford had mado an
oration, but had presented no facts.
Benator Crawford retorted that he could
furnish some Interesting Testimony if the
secretary desired Hi.
It was then that Secretary Fisher said
there waa no necessity for this, that even
If what he had said In his letter wero
true, the department would not ' be
doterred from locating a land office a j
near to the people as possible, regard- '
less of whom It might benefit.

In return for this protection money.
Purcoll said, the pollco generally let him
alone. When they had to act on com
plaints from tho outside thoy "tipped him
off," ho declared. Ho always moved to
another houso when thus Informed. For a
while, ho moved every day.
1'ollco commissioners, Inspectors and
captains emtio and went during tho ttma

ho snld, but it made no difference. Col

regularly every week or every month.
When ho was making a handbook ho pa'.d
them J2.1 n week; when lyt was running1
a pool room or gAmbllng houso he paid
from ICO to $100 11 week. When ho was
doing nothing ho pnld nothing.
What becamo of tho money after It
reached tho hands of the captains or In

an Idea, gained from among his fellotyj

"I got permission from Mike Cruise, a

houso In Thirty-third street," Purcell
sulil, "Crulso wanted $50 a week tor
himself, tho snpie for Captain Gray and
$10 a pleco to the two men who came to
