I EXPERT FIGURES ON
NEW PENSION BILL
jj It Will Require Millions of Dollars to Carry Out
jlj Provisions of the Senate Measure-Fire Stamps
j I to Help Baltimore Fire Sufferers
K (Special to The Tribune.) " ' r
- (By A,' F. Philips.) "
II WASHINGTON', D. C, Feb. 27. Bun-
i yan'n "Pilgrims' Progress" suffered a.
; ' setback during the recent sleet storm'
I and " came to grief In the Capitol
j grounds. It sleeted all night In Wash-
1 Ington. and in the morning the hill
I crowned by the Capitol was as smooth
as glass. Staid Senators and Reprc-
sentatives toolc the yellow cars, for no
S one could -walk up the hill.
1 Shortly after 10 o'clock the big- auto
jj used by the Congressional library
started down town to deliver books and
jj! return with mail. The auto is a hand-
. some one, and in fact is regarded as
! the handsomest one in Washington.
3 From the Congressional library to
a tho hill proper the distance is about
1 2000 feet, and this space the groat car-
U riago covered at a. rapid rate, and was
60on on the decline. The chauffeur
3 saw his mistake before he had gone a
fl dozen yards, and applied tho brakes.
J The machine stopped for a moment
and then wheeled in a circle. The mo-
j tor was reversed, but it did no good,
; and went waltzing- down the hill, clr-
t cling rapidly as it gained momentum.
Half-way down the hill, where New
1 1 Jersey avenue enters the Capitol
. grounds, the vehicle struck the curbing
and was brought up suddenly against ,
a Japanese Japonlca tree and badly
I.'., Strange- to say the only book in tne
,' vehicle damaged was a copy of Bun-
yan's "Pilgrims' Progress," which was
) addressed to C. B. Landls, the genial
i ' Congressman from the Ninth Indiana
district, which now needs new binding.
After an effort of at least two hours
t the wrecked machine was righted by
tho Capitol police, and by means of a
block and tackle was carefully let down
the rest of the hill, when; it was dragged
to the shop for repairs.
u t. a
Republican leaders In Congress are of
i (he opinion that the service pension bill
will pass at this session, they having
reached a conclusion that the time is
now ripe for such legislation. The age
limit, it is said, will be fixed at G5 years,
when the old soldiers will be entitled
jl to pension. The pensibn bureau has
i figured out that less than $10,000,000
would be paid out on pensions; so pre
' pared, in the first year. It is expected
that these pensions would call for ap-
1 proximately 515,000,000 the second year,
and possibly reach $19,500,000 thereaf
: ter, which would be the high water
' mark. In the opinion of pension ofilc.e
experts, a decrease in payments would
then begin, because of the ages reached
c;' by the beneficiaries.
1 , N,
' One of the ways suggested to help the
N hundreds of people made idle by the
h Baltimore fire Is that the Postoffice de-
f partment make a special issue of post-
i age stamps, to be known as the "Balti-
; more Fire Fund" stamp, this stamp to
l be of the face value of 2 cents and
available for use wherever the current
h 2-cent. stamp may be used, but sold by
!' postmasters to the public for 5 cents,
the 3 cents to go into the fund for the
1 relief of distress in Baltimore.
The consumption of 2-cent postage
stamps in the United States is about
, 8,000,000 per day. Assuming that for a
period of 100 days 2 per cent of the
stamps used should be the "Fire Fund"
I COOL-HEADED WOMEN
i STAY WRATH OF MOB
NEW YORK, Feb. 27. Quick action
by a crowd of women passengers prob-
ably saved an Italian from death at the
hands of a mob in Paterson, N. J.
, Tho Italian had slashed an Erie con
ductor with his razor in a dispute over
a pass. He was seised by enraged pas
sengers, thrown upon the rails before
an approaching passenger train, where
the crowd proposed to hold him. In the
darkness it is likely he would have
been cut to pieces.
Several women ran up the track and
signaled the train to stop. Police ar
rived at that moment and hustled the
Italian to jail.
The conductor's throat was badly
torn by the razor, and he probably will

BERLIN, Feb. 27. Emperor William
has never traveled far in a modern
passenger steamer and that fact Is
given as the reason for his taking tho
North German Lloyd steamer Koenlg

Tho cruiser Henrlch II. will convoy
the Koenlg Albert all the way to Mea

boat Slelpter, will accompany tho Ho-

I"BIFE" ANSWERS DEATH
CALL IN NEW YORK
NEW YORK, Feb, 27. Frank Ellison,
known as "Biff." r familiar character
in this city, is dead from pneumonia.
He is said to havo been the youngest
officer in the Union army, having- run(
away from his home In Philadelphia'
and received a Lieutenant's commission
nt the age of 15.
Ellison- was once a member of the
atock exchange and belonged to tho
leading clubs. In 1S93 he assaulted an
other broker and was sentenced to flvo
years In the penitentiary. Efforts wero
made by influential friends to procure
his pardon, but It was granted only a
few months before the expiration of the
variety, the net amount would be $300,
000. It is said by stamp collectors that
in tho event of the Issue of such a
stamp not less lhan 5,000,000 would be
absorbed by stamp collectors and deal
ers. This would net the fire fund $150,
000 additional, as well as giving the
Government a net profit of $100,000, as
practically nope of these 5,000,000 would
ever be required to perform postal duty.
This $100,000 would much more than
cover the cost of production and han
dling. It is figured that the enterprise
would bo self-supporting and net to
Baltimore close to $700,000.
House resolution No. 10,869, intro
duced by Congressman Mondell of Wyoming-,
to apply a portion of the pro
ceeds of the sales of public lands to the
endowment of schools or departments?
of mines and mining In connected with
the colleges established In the several
States, under the provisions of the act
passed In 1SG2, donating public lands to
the several States and Territories
which may provide colleges for tho
benefit of agriculture and the mechanic
arts, is now In the House, favorable re
port thereon having been made. It la
not probable that it will pass this ses- i
sion, owing to the fact that early ad
journment Is certain. The House Com- '
mittce on Mines and Mining had a pro- r
longed hearing on the measure the mld
dlo of January and ordered favorable '
report on the measure, but, as stated,
it will not likely get through this ces
sion for the reason stated.
EXCITING MAN HUNT
IN NEW YORK STATE
Aged Man Accused of Assaulting- a
Woman Run Down and Saved
BINGHAMTON, N. Y., Feb. 27. Af
ter one of the most exciting- man hunts
in the history of this city, lasting- for
nearly thirty hours, Morrl3 Odell,
charged with attacking two women,
has been captured. Prompt arrival of
policemen saved tho man from falling
into tho hands of a crowd of fifty men
who were chasing him.
Odell is a white man, nearly 50 years
oltl, and was captured by Levi Ray,
Foremost In the crowd was Frank
Fancher, husband of one of tho alleged
victims. Fancher was unarmed, but he
Jumped for Odell. struck him and at
tempted to wring his neck until pulled
away by a policeman.
Odell's wife died recently, and he is
said to have drunk heavily since then.
After attacking his stepdaughter, ho
visited Fanchor's house, where he for
merly boarded. Mrs. Fancher was at
work and did not seo him enter. Ho
seized the woman, choked her almost
senseless and fled whon tho children
gave an alarm.

DENVER, Feb. 27. Word has been
received here from Mrs. Clinton B. Fisk,
national president of the Woman's

dist church, that the twenty-fourth na

FIRE MAKES RUIN OF
WISCONSIN STATE HOUSE
Capitol Building Gutted by Early Morning Blaze
Loss Estimated at $800,000; Wreck Is Complete
and New Building Must Be Reared.
MADISON, Wis., Feb. 27. Tho Wis- I
consln State capltol building was dam- 1
aged $500,000 by fire today. The fire in
volves the building of a new capltol, a
special session of tho Legislature, and
the probablo renewal of the agitation
In favor of the removal of the capltol
from Madison to Milwaukee. Tho fire
was caused by defectivo electrio wir
The fire started before daylight and
at 8 o'clock had completely ruined the
cast and west wings, containing the
Senate and Assembly chambers and the
departments of the tax commission, the
Adjutant-General, railroad commis
sioner, State school superintendent, su
perintendent of property, board of ag
riculture, State normal school, com
missioner of fisheries, fish and game
warden, State board of pharmacy, com
missioner of labor, Governor, Secretary
of State, State board of control and In
surance commissioner, the Supremo
court law library and the Stat library
commission. Practically all the valu
able State records are believed to bo
safe. .Most of them remain In masonry
and steel vaults In the ruins.
Fire apparatus was sent from Mil
waukee. Gov. Schoflold maintained insurance
on the building- throughout his term to-
tailing $600,000, but the last Legislature
Instituted an Insurance fund and di
rected the State officers to allow tho
insurance policies to lapse. In June
last there lapsed $510,000, and in Decem
ber the sum of $90,000. There is In tho
insuranco fund at the present time
I about $6000 to meet tho loss, which con
1 servatlve estimates place at $800,000.
The fire practically devastated every
portion of the capltol building with the
exception of the north end. This was
saved, but In siph a dilapidated con
dition that this portion, together with
the standing walls, will have to be torn
Gov. LaFolletto was early on the
scene, and by his coolness and self
1 possession did much to enforce order
among the workers. All the contents
of the Immense law library were car
ried out, together with a large quantity
of other books and papers. Tho price
less records stored in the Grand Armyi
room also were saved.
Chief Charles Bernard was overcome
by smoke and fell from a ladder, re
ceiving serious Injuries. He Is uncon
scious. From an original cost of $60,000 in 1837
appropriations from time to time for
new additions made the cost of tho
State capltol to date about $900,000.
ROCHESTER, N. Y., Feb. 27, Tho
fire that started yesterday In the busi
ness district is still burning- In the
ruins. Over half a block on Main
street, between St. Paul and Clinton
streets, Is a mass of smoking ruins, tho
walls coated thick with Ice. The fire
men worked all night, and many of
them will have to work tonight also.
All day the firemen were at work tear
ing down the unsafe walls.
The Rochester department of the Un
derwriters association, after a careful
estimate, places tho actual loss at
$2,500,000, and the amount of Insuranco
in the regular stock Insuranco com
panies at $2,000,000.
