He Had Never Known.
STORY IS STRANGE ONE
History of the Slain Man
Reveals a Story Which
Rivals Fiction.
Special to The Tribune.
DENVER, April 3. A murder, com
mitted in a squalid miser's hut, nine
teen months ago", io tho hand of destiny
which has brought together a brother
and a sister and ostablished their re
lationship to John Zabransky, aged Bo
hemian, wanderer and recluse.
Today Zabransky 's two children,
Eliska Zabransky and Clifford Zabran-skj-,
are being awarded tho old miser's
known estate, which amounts to $2000.
It took a year for Attorney Carl Loth- j
rop of Denver to traco over a quarter j
of a century of the nomadic life of
Zabransky, who was slain in a shack
at Brighton, Colo., a Denver suburb,
Saturday night, August 17, 1912, by J.
H. Sherley, Jr., who ie now serving a
life sontence in the state penitentiary
at Canon City.
Lothrop, in tracing the career of the
murdered man, has revealed a life of ro
mance, tragedy, joy and sorrow which
rivals the stories of historic recluses
and wandererB.
It was not nntil a few months ago
that Lothrop located the children of
Zabransky. EliBka Zabransky, 16 years
old, is in Garner, la. She was given to
Mr. and Mr3. E. Bonbiachelr of Garner,
when she was years old.
Clifford Zabransky, 15 3'cars old, was
given at birth to Mr. and Mrs. E. Dell
Stcvonson of Farmington, Utah. Clif
ford's mother died as ho was born, and
this, it is claimed, undermined tho
hopes of Zabransky, who from that
timo on becamo a wanderer. The chil
dren 7ievor havo seen or known of each
other and have uevcr known of their
father's tragic fate.
When the daughter grew to the ago
of 3 years, Zabrauskj had been heard
to say that she was f'gettinir too much
like her mother," and that he couldn't
stand to Beo tho resemblance. Then ho
gye tho girl to the Ponbiachoks. sub
stantial farming people of Garner, la,
Ho made it plain to them that the girl
should novor know of her father's or
brother's existence

NINE HERS
OF THE SENATE
TO DEFY RULES
Revolt Against Proceedings
Behind Closed Doors An
nounced After Nomina
tion Is Confirmed.
i
LA FOLLETTE IS THE
INSURGENT CHIEF
Debate in Executive Session
Said to Have Been One of
the Bitterest in Years;
Secrecy Impossible.
WASHINGTON, April 3. Nine mom
bers of the senate, headed by Senator
La Polletlo, openly revolted against
proceedings behind closed doors to
night after tho executive session, in
which, the senate, by a vote of 36 to 27,
confirmed tho nomination of Winthrop
M. Daniels of New Jersey to be a mem
ber of tho interstate cominerco commis
sion. Senator La Pollette asserted that he
proposed to defy the rules of the senate
in the future and discuss publicly legis
lation not affecting foreign relations,
and later it TvaB announced that Sena
tors Bristow, Cummins, Clapp, Kenyon,
Norris, Jones and Gronna, Republicans,
and Poindester, Progressive, would
maintain the same attitude.
The revolt created a sensation and
there was much speculation a3 to tho
effect it would havo upon future execu
tive sessions. Tho general opinion was
that there would be no attoinpt to take
action against members who disregarded
tho rule o secrecy.
Three-day Fight.
Confirmation of Commissioner Dan
iels closed a threo-day fight, marked
by one of tho bittcrost debates hoard
at tho capitol in. years. Mr. Daniols's
advocates had the support of President
Wilson's well-known desiro that his ap
pointee and personal friend bo con
firmed without delaj'. Opponents to
tho confirmation based their objection
on tho ground that Mr. Daniels's views
on the valuation of public service prop
erty was unsound. As during tho two
preceding days, senators continued to
insist that Mr. Daniels's ideas, as ex
pressed in tho decision of the Now
Jersey public servico commission, of
which he was chairman, m tho Passaic
gas rate caBe, would make him danger
ous a3 a member of the interstate com
merco commission at a timo when the
commission was fixing a valuation on
railroad property.
Split Patched Up.
Senator Hughes of New Jorsoy, called
back from a congressional fight in his j
state, throw his weight into the fight
in favor of bis constituent today, lie
spoke iu support of Mr. Daniels, and
was joined by Senators Newlauds, chair
man of the interstate commerce com
mittee, Pittman and Williams.
The opposition was nettled bv tho
patching up of tho split in the Demo
cratic ranks over nignt.
They had consented to postponement
of a voto yesterday, when victory ap-
Earcntly was in sight, in ordor to allow
leniocratio senators to talk with the
president about withdrawing Mr. Dan
iels's name after tho nomination had
been recommitted. They denouncod tho
determination of Democratic leaders,
after a visit to the Whito house, to
force a voto on confirmation as little
short of bad faith.
Vote in Detail.
Tho vote resulted at? follows:
For confirmation Brnndegoe, Brvan,
Dillingham, Pall, Gallinger, Goro,
Hughes, James, Johnson, Leo or Mary
land, Lewis, Lippitt, Lodge, McLean,
Martin, Myers, NewlandB, Oliver. Ovor
man, Owon, Page. Perkins, Pitman,

soaaion and immediately began consid

IIS ASKED
TO HELP 1 SICK
Sealing Schooner Southern
Cros Missing in Ice Floes
With 170 Men Aboard.
. ST. JOHNS, N. F., April 3. As the
hours went by tonight without word
from tho sealing schoouor ' Southern
Cross, fear grew that her crew of 170
mon had boon added to tho toll of Tues
day's blizzard, in which tho men of tho
sealer Newfoundland lost their livos.
Tho number of tho Newfoundland's
dead was placed at seventy-so'ven late
today, with tho further possibility that
several of tho 312 who wore rescued
would succumb to tho uHccts of tho
forty-eight hours' exposure. Arrange
ments wcro mado tonight for tho recep
tion of the roseuo ship Bollaveiituro,
which is expected to arrive tomorrow,
bringing most of the dead and many of
the survivors.
In an effort to solve the mystery of
the disappearance ot tho Southern
Cross, tho Newfoundland government
naked the American revenue cutter
Seneca to leave tho ice patrol and
search for tho missing scaler. The
coastal steamer Kyle, which has a wire
less equipment, was fitted out. here tor
a cruise along the southeastern coast,
off which the Southern Cross was Inst
scon on Tuesdiiv morning, a ftnv hours
before tho throe days' blizzard began.
Although the vessels of the so-culled
wooden-walled sealing licet, of which
tho Southern Cross was one, have
bucked icefields with impunity and are
regarded as stanch ships, sail scalers
say that hor cargo of 17,000 seal pelts
would be an active danger during a
storm on account of its iustabiltiy.

Many of yesterday's visitors to the

FRENCH RELEASED BY
IIIFlfli; COURT
"No Evidence of Public Of
fense," Says Judge in
Giving Decision..
Special to The Tribune.
LOS ANGELES.' Cal., April 3. C. W.
French, promoter, who wns arrested on a
ch'urRC of liavlnp fflven u worthless draTt
to the Hotel Utah of Salt Lake City in
payment for entertainment for a number
of Los Angeles capitalists, was released
toduy by Judge Crnlg, who, In giving1 his
decision, suld:
I can find no reason for holding
this man In custody. There Is no evi
dence of a public offense having been
committed nnd sufficient facts ure not
stated to conslltuto or even allege u
crime There Is no evidence here that
the draft was over presented to the
peraon on whom It was drawn for
payment.
Kemper J. Campbell, attorney for
French, declared that French's arrost was
caused by foreign capitalists who tried
to get him out of thu way.
French bus a damage suit pending In
the federal courts against G. O. Itelf of
Suit Lake, the complaining witness
against him, and several others.
According to County Attorney I. E.
Wtllcy. no word of the action of the Cali
fornia court had reached him up to a late
hour lust night. In the absence of direct
advice on the decision, Mr. Wllley said
that ho could not mako a statement In
reference to future action on the case.
"I am surprlhcd," said G. O. Itelf. man
ager of the Ilolel Utah, when told of the
decision. "Of course, I do not maan to
criticise tho judge In the case, but I do
know that two worthless drafts arc In
Lou Angeles and that this hotel cashed
them In good faith. PosMbly that Ih not
a crime, or po.sf.lbly th complaint did not
cct forth a crime. One thing Is sure,
and that Is. the drafts have not been
paid."

his bulletin last night Villa said tho H
