1 L.BAXY. April A. Snugly hidden In
A Senator Davis's vollng machine
bill a clever little joker has been
discovered. If enacted into law;, it
svould compel the election authorities
of every community 1r the State to
; buy voting machines of a single cor
al porallon, the machine to be selected by
$ n. board of commissioners at a cost of
m more than 55,000.000. The city of New
HI York alone would be forced, the mo-
fi ment this committee decided on a vot-
Ing machine, to expend ab least $2,000,-
9 OlX In equipping' each election district
B -with the machine.
HI 'The Davis bill is Intended to regu-
H late the use of voting- machines, and
HI amends the existing law. As the law
HI . stands, the Board of Elections of thy
HI city of New York, or the Common
H Council of any other city, or authori
al lies of any town may adopt any kind
H of a voting machine approved by the
H State Board of Election Commlsslon-
crs. This section is not amended by
H the present law, but the proposition
that tliese commissioners shall decide
on a machine Is Inserted. The joker
WM-y of the law provides:
EH "The local authorities adopting a vot-
JHl ing machine shall, as soon as pructl
Sjj c-.vblo thereafter, provide for each poll
Vm lilg place one or more machines." This
a Is amended to read thus: "The local au
1 1 thorltle.s, when notified of the adop
EJ1 tlon of a voting machine by the State
Kg board designated in this act, shall at
H once provide for each polling place one
or more voting machines in complete
J order of the type adopted." And th
fl next section, which at present allows
fl the local authorities to provide funds
for the purchase of voting machines, Is
fl amended so as to make It mandatory on
J thu Board of Elections.
H Reduced to terms, what this means
H is this: The style and requirements of
H a voting maclilnc are carefully pre
H scribed in the law, so it Is quite possi
H ble that onlj' one kind of machine could
I ho adopted. Any time, therefore, that
I this mysterious commission shall de
P cldc on a voting machine, all it has
P to do Is to inform the Board of Elec-
lions In New York city, and that body
P will have no option, but must pur
P chase there machines at once. The cost
of a voting machine is approximately
H Thus the city of New York, If It
PH . purchased only two machines for each
P election district, would be compelled
P under the Davis law to spend at least
P 32,000,000 lu buying one kind of ma
P chine. Every village, town and city In
P the State of New York would be placed
P at the absolute mercy of the corpora
Pi tlon manufacturing this machine, and
P more than $5,000,000 would be paid out
of the public treasury into that of the
P It Is perfectly well known that lob-
P hylsts of no small political importance
P arc here In the Interests of this bill,
P , the full Import of which was dlscov
PJP ' crcd today. The Davis bill Js so long
MR and complicated and the amendment is
so snugly Imbedded In It that tho
p scheme him up to the present moment
HI entirely escaped attention.

DOWN PIPE WOMAN
SLIDES TO LIBERTY
While Policemen Guarded Her Door
She Escaped' Through Window
and Gives Them the Laugh.
Special to The Tribune.
OAKLAND, Cal., April A. With a
brave slide for liberty down a
flushing- pipe at the side of a
house, Mrs. Jennie Turnbull this
afternoon gave two policemen the laugh
and escaped from a rear window of her
room at the Windsor hotel, Ninth and
Washington streets, while the officers
waited outside with a search warrant
to look for jewelry. She had been
charged by E. Derosa with having
taken a locket which he highly prized,
and upon her refusal to give it up he
went to the police station and swore
out a search warrant
When Policemen Sill and Murray,
with a warrant, arrived at Mrs. Turn
bull's residence they found the door
locked. Mrs. Turnbull wanted to know
the mission of the men, and they ex
plained it to her. She told them that
they would have to wait until she
dressed, and while they waited the
woman went out of the back window
and away. When the room was finally
entered Mrs. Turnbull was missing.
Mrs. Turnbull occupied room No. 20
In the hotel. Her window opened upon
an arcaway twenty-five feet below,
which leads to the street. Down the
aide of the house there runs a pipe,
and stepping out onto the window sill
she was able to reach the pipe and slide
The locket was found hidden In the
top of an oil stove after the policemen,
with tho assistance of the hotel land
lord, got Into tho hastily vacated apartment.

Ignorant of the mission of Mr. Owen,
the Embassador received him, but on

at St, Louis.
Special to Tho Tribune.
NEW YORK. April 4. Now that Da
vid B. Hill Is once more Democrat
ic boss of this State, there Is con
siderable Interest in his plau to
Instruct the Empire State delegates to
St Louis for Parker. The Tammany
element fs up in arms against the prop
osition, but as Hill has the delegates, it
looks very much as if ho would do aa
Charles F. Murphy, the Tammany
chief, is firmly opposed to instructing
the delegation, and will fight against It
In tho State convention on April lSth,
and may carry the opposition to St.
Louis; but so far the most generous es
timate only gives Tammany control of
150 or ICO delegates, out of 450 in the
State convention, while Hill has cap
tured 300 for Parker. This means that
instructions for Parker are certain.
What Murphy can do at St. Louis Is
a problem, but with New York behind
him. the Hill men say that Parker has
almost a clear field for the nomination
at St. Louis.
The Parker victory leaves William
R. nearst without delegates In his own
State, unless it should turn out that
Charles F. Murphy, In order to beat
Hill out, should throw the Tammany
vote at St. Louis to Mr. Hearst- This
Is regarded as extremely improbable.
Inasmuch as Mr. Hearst is likely to
ally his following with the Bryan men
at St. Louis. It Is believed that the Hill
men will not show any quarter to any
one opposed to Judge Parker.

Plagrant Example of the Duplicity
of Natives Revealed in One
WASHINTON, April A. In view of
the recent charges made against the
administration of the Congo Free State,
the Associated Press cabled to King
Leopold asking for his sido of the case.
In replyy the Congo Stato has cabled
authority to James Gustavus Whlteley
to give the following resume of the
Brussels note, which has been issued in
reply lo the charges made In tho recent
report of tho British Consul:
"The case of the boy Epondo, who
claimed that his left hand had been cut
off by a native sentry in tho service of
La Lunga Rubber company, caused
the Consul, accompanied by two mis
sionaries, to go to the village of Bosf
sunguma. and to hold an Impromptu
court of Inquiry. The injured boy ac
cused the sentry to his face. The chief
and a number of the head men accused
the sentry. Most of them declared that
they had been eye-witnesses of tho
deed. The sentry denied tho charge.
"Other natives came forward with
various charges of robbery and wrong
doing ngninst the sentry, and finally
the Consul, conyidcring the cvldonce
conclusive, announced that Klengo de
serves punishment for his cruel and
illegal acts, and, taking with him the
maimed boy, laid the ense before tho
Stato authorities, saying dramatically
that he denounced not un individual,
but a system.
"As a matter of fact thhe accusations
of Spendo against the sentry" were
shown to bo without any foundation.
When the proper State authorities
camo to investigate the boy's evidence
broke down. He admitted that he had
lied, and explained that he had lost his
liand lu a bear hunt.
Admitted His Duplicity.
"When asked why he hud accused tho
sentry he said that he had done It at
the Instigation of the natives of the
district, who hoped thus to secure the'
intervention of the British Consul and
a release from the necessity of gather
ing rubber. Most of the natives who
had accused the fwntry before the Con
sul took to the woods. Those who were
caught admitted that they had given
false testimony. Other witnesses who
were called corroborated the boy's con
fession that liis hand had been lost in a

In Hamburg the expenses for provid
