DEMOCRATS HOLD UP
Partisan Row Breaks Out -in
Senate, With Threats Made
on- Both Sides.
Dy Inleruntional Xows Servlcq.
r t A 1ST II TON, Dec. 6 Tho long
lf hrewiug row over patronage
i y in thc senate broke this after
noon when Senator Tlokc
Smith of Georgia deliberately prevent
ed an executive session in which the ICc
publicans inteuded to contirm a big list
of brand new Taft appoiutmonls. . In
side of three minutes senators ou both
sides were promising war to tho kuife
and there is every indication that those
promises will bo very, scrupulously kept.
Democrats complain that "President
Taft, now that the sands of his admin
istration arc running low, has arranged
to put :!00 or -100 Republicans in office
for four years' terms, where, safeguard
ed by the civil service, they can fliug
defiance at the incoming president, aud
form tho nucleus of the new Republican
The Democrats in the somite havo an
nounced that .this would not be permit
ted. Today byrefusing to allow au ex
ecutive session they put the first skids
under the Taft arrangements.
Senator Smith headed oil' thc execu
tive session by raising the point of no
quorum. Tip was acting, not for him
self alone, but. for the Democratic lead
ers and the Uepublienus knew it. As
the Archbald session had concluded,
there was nothing to do but adjouru.
The Ilopubliean senators immediately
got their heads together on the floor
aud from them presently issued ' tho
threat that if tho Democrats wanted
war thoy should havo it.
"You will not have much of a ma-j
jority yourselves after the -1th of uoxt
March," a Republican senator told the
belligerent Democrats. " If you are go
ing through with this plan to Icccp all
of Mr. Taft'a appointee from getting
the offices they hnvc boon given, we
will do the same thing when President
Wilson-bofjiiis to make- appointments."
To this threat the Democrats listened
attentively hut said less. One of thc
leaders announced before leaving the
floor that the objection to Taft appoint
ments would no right along, uo matter
how much the Republicans blustered.
"It is ouo thing, said this sena
tor, "for a Republican president who
has a minority of votes in thc electoral
college to try to wish on tho whole peo
ple of this country a lot of his miuor
iry office-holders, who have been re
pudiated as distiuctlj- as ho has becu.

Pu'on aud died a few nun
y utes ago iu thc emergency
hospital," was the laconic
.comment that went the rounds of police
headquarters last night at' 6 o'clock.
Such was thc casual notice taken of
the death of a police court character
who had spent most of thc nights dur
ing the two years that Salt Lake ha
known him in jail or in tho basement of
the old city hall where tramps are given
beds to keep them out of the gutters.
Such ordinarily would havo beeu
tho final comment upon thc pass- IH
ing of ouo of ' the many
pieces of human flotsam that
the murky eddies of li f swirl fiunlly
into thc potter s field. The remark,
however, was caught up by a knowing
one and flashed across a continent. Back jH
from many cities in tho United States

of Dr. .lohu R. Hill?"

Dr. ,7ohu R. Hill, -1G years of age,

tor, mopiber of a rich Chicago family
but knowu to Salt Lake only as a police
court character, died at the emergency
hospital at police headquarters at '
o'clock Jast night from tho effects of
poison taken with suicidal intont.
Yesterday morning Dr. Hill was re
leased from tho city jniT after serving
thirty days. for vagrancy. The cup of
his despoudency was made to overflow
when he was refused entrance to cv
eral clothing stores at which he tried
to buy clothes. Fiuding that bcraiifii
of his tramp-like, appearance he could
not spend his money with tho clothiers J
he tried the saloous with better sncce".
Finally he purehasod a- bottle of whiaki
.1 bottle of chili sauce and a bottle of
rat poison and drank them all. Then
he applied for a ticket to a picture show
but was stopped in the lobby bv an
usher und turned over to the police.

At the emergency hospital he told ol JM
his debauch and said he had planned
that it should be thc last, ire wus at-

that the poison hud burned his throat
