,The Republican* Will Make a Deter
. mined Effort to Change
the Rales.
Haw York Sun Spmolmt Smrvlom
Washington, March 6. —Vice President
Theodore Roosevelt's first day as presid
ing officer of the United States senate
was one that warmed the cockles of his
stout heart. It was a scrap from the
start, but not to the finish because that
is in future as this particular scrap is
a make-up for several days.
Mr. Roosevelt's enjoyment was marred,
of course, by the fact that he was not
actually in the row, but merely a pas
sive spectator of it, and that he was
somewhat ill at ease in his new surround
ings. He sat most of the time leaning
forward with both arms stretched across
the desk in front of him, fingering con
stantly the little ivory gavel.
Mr. Roosevelt did, it is true, call the
senators "gentlemen" and •members,"
and several times referred to the secre
tary as "clerk." He fell into the ques
tionable habit, also, of saying, "I think
so," instead of "the chair thinks so and
so," but the only slip worth mentioning
was when Senator Hoar moved that the
senate proceed to executive session. In
stead or putting the question, Mr. Koost-
velt asked for "unanimous consent," and
he was pointedly reminded by Mr. Hoar,
whose hobby it Is gently and pointedly .
to admonish new and youthful members
of the senate, that the proper method is
to pnt the question to a vote.
One fact Mr. Roosevelt made very con
spicuous, and that is so far as lies in |
his power the rules of the senate will be
strictly observed. One of these rules says
that every senator, when he arises to
speak, shall first address the chair. The
presiding officer had occasion to enforce
this several times.
Look to Roosevelt.
The republican majority is looking to
Roosevelt to reform the senate as
Speaker Reed reformed the house so as
to enable the majority to legislate. Sena
tor Platt of Connecticut this morning
gave notice of an amendment to the sen
ate rules providing for cloture. There
will be determined opposition to a
change in the senate rules, but the ex
ercise of the right to unlimited debate in
the last session and the defeat of the
river and harbor bill by such methods
has spurred the republican leaders to an
effort for reform. Senator Platt will press
his amendment. He will have the sup
port of the majority of republicans.
The democrats will resist such a change
in the rules. They will have the assist
ance of a few republicans. There is prom
ise of a sharp debate on the amendment.
A Seoond Reed.
There have been other efforts to se
cure such a change and they have come
to nothing because the president of the
senate is only the moderator in that j
body. So was the speaker in the house j
until Mr. Reed took the gavel in the fifty- j
first congress. But when the committee !
on rules reported new rules and the
democrat-: filibustered, Speaker Reed ex-.
ercised authority and counted a quorum
to bring the question to a vote. It will
be more difficult in the senate to bring !
the amendment to a vote, but it &s be- ;
lieved Vice President Roosevelt has the j
courage to enforce any action agreed \
upon by the majority, even to enforcing |
a cloture on this proposition and to let I
his action be sustained by a majority j
Jone« lit After Pie.
Washington, March 6. —The democrats may
denounce McKinley In public, but in private
they come around for their share of the pat- j
ronage and demand it without a blush. Mr.
Jones of Arkansas, for example, chairman of
the democratic national committee, was one
of the flrst senators to reach the White House
after the Philippine resolutions were passed
to secure a place for Representative Terry of
his state, who would like to have a judgeship j
at Manila or anything else of equal honor j
and emolument.

Massachusetts Girl < limbs Down the

**•*> York Sun Special Strvi «
Ottawa, March 6.—The town of Aylmer,
on Lake Deschenes, eight miles from Otta
wa has a romance. It is the disappearance
from the Roman Catholic convent of a
young, pretty and accomplished inmate,
said to be Miss Kelly of Holyoke, Mass.
About 3 o'clock yesterday morning in a
house opposite the convent, a woman was
up nursing a sick child. She saw a sleigh
in front of the convent with a man in it,
and another man was at the foot of the
fire escape. A girl emerged from an upper
window of the convent and climbed slowly
down the escape. At the bottom she was
received in the arms of the man who car
ried her to the sleigh.
Death Lively to Result From a Fight
in Chicago.
New York Sun Special Service
Chicago, March 6. —With bare knuckles
and in hobnail boots, ''hoodlum" rules
governing, Philip Toll, 810 Wood street,
and John Delanty, foremen In the stables
of John Burns, Forty-second street and
Emerald avenue, fought to a finish in the
rear of their place of employment. After
several vicious roands, to which the other
employes of the place were spectators, Toll
was put out, it i 3 said, with a right kick
in the abdomen. The doctors say he will
probably die.
The removal of a small pile of straw
from a stall in the stable by a man work
ing under Toll's orders is given as the
cause of the encounter.
Resolution Introduced at the Cattle
Growers* Convention.
Denver, March 6.—At a convention of

nues in promoting irrigation in the
states and territories where it is derived."
The committee on credentials excluded
delegates that have even the slightest
interest in the sheep industry, but re
ferred to the convention the question of
admitting applicants engaged in raising
both sheep and cattle.
Pittsburg, March 6.—The ninth annual con
vention of the National Wholesale Lumber
Dealers' Association began here to-day with
200 delegates representing TOO firms and |1»,

Men In Montana—Semite
Special to The Journal.
'Helena, Mont., March 6. —The closing
days of the session of the Montana legisla
ture is likely to develop the biggest of all
sensations. There is talk of impeachment
proceedings against Lieutenant Governor
P. G. Higglns for trying to override the
will of the lawmakers. He is accused of
conniving at attempts to prevent an im
portant bill from reaching the governor
before adjournment.
Senate bill 87. providing for a change of
venue in case of a prejudiced or biased
judge, is the bill he is charged with try
ing to defeat. This bill has been bitterly
fought by interests hostile to the Amalga
mated Copper company and came near
bringing on a riot in the house where It
passed after two days of filibustering by
its opponents.
The house sent the bill back to the sen
ate with certain amendments. The senate
concurred, but the lieutenant governor de
clines to sign the bill and has referred it
to a committee of its eaemies which re
fuses to report it. The senate had a se
cret session last night and discussed the
proposed impeachment of Higgins. The
next twenty-four hours will develop
whether this measure will be resorted to
or not.

Trenton, N. J., March 6.— Robert Hen
son's passion for fancy stitched and curved
soled shoes nut the hangman's noose
around his neck. The negro was convicted
of murder in the first dr-gree. The state's
case was built purely upon circumstantial
evidence, the imprint of the fancy cut
shoes in the mud.
Henson's shoes were cut V shaped and
the sole at the ball of the foot was finished
with many scallops. There were innumer
able stitchings above the sole and the pe
culiarities were clearly imprinted on the
clay like mud.
The negro murdered Mrs. George Van
Lieu and her o-year-old daughter in her
cottage at Altura. a village a few miles
above this city, last November. He fired
the house and partially, cremated the
bodies of his victims.
