CHICAGO, Feb. 15.-The story of a
woman, who surrendered her husband to:
another woman and took him back ten
years later, when ho was crippled and
destitute was revealed today at the In
quest over the body of John F. Rommel,
70 years old.
Mrs. Rommel testified she surrendered

found him penniless and his right arm
withered and almost useless. He had
been Injured In a street car accident.
She Invited him home, although she did
not accept him as her husband, and
there he has lived until this morning,
when his body was found in his room In
the basement with a gash In the neck.
The coroner's Jury was unable to de
cide whether the aged man had been
murdered or whether he ended his own
life. The police are searching for Mrs.
Gardner, who, according to Mrs. -.ommel,
had Insured Rommel's life, naming her
self as beneficiary.

an vor or tho house
committee on agriculture on Monday for
the purpose of calling up under suspen
sion of the rules the bill to aid In the
prevention of hog cholera, which has
passed the senate earrylnk a toOO.000 ap
propriation, and recommended by the
house agricultural committee, with an
amendment appropriating $100,000 to
combat detourlne In western horses.
The jeport on the bill was prepared
by Chairman Icver. assisted "by Con
gressman Sloan of Nebraska, who is ex
pected to speak on the bill Monday when
It Is brought up.. Inasmuch as hoar
cholera, according to reports from the
great packing centers, causes the taking
of about 11 per cent of the hogs passed
through anto-morten Inspection to be
condemned after post mortem Inspection,
the enormous Importance of this meas
ure can bo understood. Nebraska and
Iowa being the great hog feeding states
of the union, are perhaps more deeply
Interested In the pending measure than
any other commonwealths.
Widows May Complete Entries.
Homesteaders will be deeply Interested
in a ruling by Secretary T,ane of the In
terlor department, which In a measure
reverses a ruling In previous effect, It
relates to homestead entries by entrymen
who died before the six months of the
period during which they must reside
upon the lands expired. The ruling di
rectly affects two entries in Congress
man ICInkald's district, that of two wid
ows, one, Mrs. Maggie Johnson, of Sco
tia, and the other Mrs. Jessie I". Hodder
of Garden county. Both are widows of
men who took up homesteads and who
died before they were able to file their
second papers.
Under the old ruling these deaths would
have made It Impossible for the widows
to carry out tho demands of the home
stead law and eventually to file final
proof. The Injustice of this Is seen by
the secretary, and inasmuch as the wid
ows in question have shown every Indi
cation of a determination to comply
strictly with the requirements of tho
! ,,onle8tcad act they ar entitled ' to prove
"i' J""t as ii meir husbands had con
tinued to live. Judge Klnkald today no
tified tho two widows of the decision,
which Is an Important one to homestead

WASHINGTON, Feb. 16.-Representa-tlvo
Burnett of Alabama, chairman of
the house committee on Immigration,
predicted tonight that bj a compromise
on the Pacific! coast fight to exclude
Japanese and all other Asiatics, congress
at this session would enact legislation
to bar out the Hindus.
"Whether the Immigration committee
will go further than that I do not know,"
Mr. Burnett said, "but there is no gen
tlemen's agreement or favored nation ar
rangement with Great Britain, so far as
the Hindus are concerned. There ought
to bo prompt legislation to nip In the bud
any steamship arrangements to bring on
an extraordinary number of tho Hindus,
a project which the immigration bureau
once discovered and foiled."
Representative Baker of California and
other Pacific coast representatives still
insist upon legislation for general ex
clusion of Asiatics. Representative
Church of California, who on Thursday
will mge the Immigration committee to
report his bill to exclude the Hindu la
borers, said tonight ho believed the com
mittee would favorably report the meas
ure and that there was no question as
to the house passing It.
Chairman Burnett said he was confi
dent the president would not veto his
general immigration bill, now beforo tho
senate committee, because of the literacy
test. He asserted that stories of a possl
blo veto hod bcon started for the purpose
or Influencing the vote on tho measure
In the senate.

It today there will be less aoccaslon for
trying to folat upon It the functions that
belong to other agencies and not to the
church; less cause for no milch com
plaint of civic failure and social and In
dustrial unrighteousness."
Thcso' pungent statements were made
by Rev. Nathaniel. McOlf fin In the course
of a perm on at iywe-Avenue Presby
terian church yesterday morning on
"Tho Church of Today." ,
Ills toxt was Mathew IBilS "Andvl say
unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon
this rock I will build my church and the
gates of hell shall not prevail against It,"
"A little while before Poter had de'
fined Je,sus Christ aa the. Son of the llv
lug Ood," sold Dr. McfJIffln, "therefore
II waa upon this rock, the rock of
Peter's conception of Christ as the Di
vine Son of flod, equal In power with
the Father, that He built His church.
It was, of course, not upon Peter, th
man or apostle, that He built His
church, but, I say, upon Peter's concep
tion of Christ."
As to the somewhat common belief
that the church Is losing Its hold on the
world and therefore falling, Dr. McGlf
fln railed the pople to remember
Christ's words that the church would
never fall, never surrender "and the
gates of hell shall not prevail
against It." '
"When we fall Into the error of think
ing thai, tho church Is apt to fail, we are
losing sight of the fact that the church
as established , hy Jestm-Chrlst Is Inde
structible. Of course, then, the church
must lay hold of and teach the truth
as It Is In Christ Jesus. It must be His
church, if It Is not to fall. And above
all. It must teach the divinity of Jesus
Christ, as Its cardinal doctrine.
"Perhaps the reason why the world
often feels that the church Is falling Is
that It sees so many Individuals In tho
church falling. That Is not a proper
estimate. I admit that the conduct of
the Individual churchman must count,
must be taken Into account, but It must
not be reckoned In the final analysis as
the bails of Judging whether or not the
church, this Institution established by
Christ, the Divine Son of oOd, Is fall
ing, for we have the promise that It
cannot fall-'the gates of hell shall not
prevail against It.'
"I repeat that the mission of the
church Is, not to police or prosecute the
world, but to Inspire It with the truth
of the gospel, which It shall preach and
teach and live with suoh persuasion and
consistency as by Its very power of er.
ample to draw the world unto Christ.
The church cannot find In the civil or
official affairs of the world any power
or Instrument of persuasion to com
pare with tho power of a dynamic gos
pel thus promulgated,
"The men of the hurch can get no
where by preaching or teaching anything
less than Christ bade them to set forth,
all of which Is wrapped up In the fa t
of the divinity of Christ, to which we
must hold eternally "
