Though only three nominations two Rail

About a month ago a conference of poli

Colonel R. C. Kerens, the Republican

Following the confercnce.the two Republi

of the "agreement," which had been
reached in thi conference. They said that
on condition of Rozier's withdrawel from

vision of the "agreement" was that Howard

A week later, a largely attended meeting
of the St. Louis Republican Club adopted
resolutions denouncing the deal and asking
for definite action In repudiation by the
State ConvenUon. Since then numerous
caucuses have been held by the reformers
and Charles Nacel has been brought out

New York, June 22. The stock market of
the week showed somo revival In activity,
accompanied by marked Irregularity In
prices, a not unnatural result of the mixed
character of the developments of the Inter

character and the professional element dis

Doubtless the generally satisfactory con

thLs element has passed from one extreme
to another, or that It Is advocating confident
speculative buying. Hopefulness, contin

than confidence, was the basis of the modi

The speculative market can well affcrd to

an isolated incident cf the crop situation.
It Is cited here merely to emphasize the un
certainties which ever attend the maturity
of the crops at tut? period, which, by ex

SALOONS RAIDED AT DALLAS.
Police Court Prosecutions for Vio

Dallas, Tex.. June 22. It has yet to be
proven whether the State Sunday law Is to
be enforced. In letter and in spirit, against
the saloons of Dallas. The law says
laloona must be closed from 12 o'clock on
Saturday night until 12 o'clock on Sunday
Last Sunday was Its first application, and
the town was almost "dry. To-day the
situation was much more "wet." Seven
saloons were raided by the city police. It
Is understood nominal fines are to be as
sessed In the police court on pleas of guilty
to-morraw morring, and that this proce
dure will bar further prosecution in the
State courts, under pleas of "former
Jeopardy," or something similar.
If this is dope, the law Is likely scon to
become a dead letter. During the past week

Doctor Dudley of St. Louis Among

New York, June 22. By the steamship

West Indian ports, arrived three survivors

disaster which destroyed St. Pierre.
Several of the scientists who had gone to
Martinique to make Inquiry Into the vol

St. Louis, and some sDecial writers and oth
ers who had visited the scene of destruc

sengers by the Fontabelle.
The three survivors of the Roralma had
little to add to the story of horror. They
are Italians and had been employed as deck
hands on the steamship.
Doctor C. I. Dudley of SL Louis, who had
gone to St. Pierre merely to see what the
ruins looked like, returned much Impressed
with the manner In which Pelee had burled
Its dead. The fact that so many had been
lost at once and so few of the bodies burled
made It seem at first glance as though some
terrible epidemic musi tread on the heels
of the first horror, but most of the bodies
the doctor found to- be Incinerated, and the
rest deeply burled under the fall of ashes.

WAYS OF CENSURING SPEAKER.
How the House of Commons Dis
ciplines Its Presiding Officer.
There seems to be no Instance of a vola
of censure being parsed upon a Speaker of
the House of Commons. But there Is an
instance of a Speaker being expelled the
House. In 1631 it came out that Sir John
Trevor, raember for Yarmouth, Hants, had
received "a 'gratuity" of a thousand
guineas from the city of London after the
passing of the Orphans bill for services
rendered durinir its nassatre. "It wasi in-
l.deed." says a contemporary, "believed that
a much greater present had been made him
on behalf of the orphans, but no proof of

he had a sudden "collick." and praying tn
be excused till the morrow. The Commons
waited till then, when another letter ar
rived announcing his conUnued Illness,
whereupon they promptly elected his suc
cessor, and at their next sitting- resolved
that the "late" Speaker had been guilty
of a "high crime and misdemeanor" and
should be expelled the House. At the same
time they sentenced a private member to
the same fate for a similar offense In tee
same matter. It Is an interesting commen
tary on the manners of the- time that "Sir
John retired to his other lucrative place,
the Mastership of the Rolls, which place ha
retained for several years."
A Speaker's words have, however, been
"taken down." In lnO, when Sir Fletcher
Norton was In the chair, he said som-thlns:
which the clerk teok down as:'. "When I '
expected candid1 treatment from that mem
ber I was mistaken, for I find I am not
to expect candor from that gentleman In
any motion he is to make to the chair."
There was a scene of great confusion, and
the Speaker denied the correctness of this
version. Mr. Hatsell, the clerk, afterwards
stated that tho Speaker consented to his
words being taken down, and that he al
ways obtained this consent before -wrltinff
a member's words down. After a most
heated debate, the Speaker Insisted on be
ing "acquitted or censured." And the
question being then put. "It passed In the
negative" whereupon Sir Fletcher-said: "I
beg leave to say that I could not have slept
to-night If the question had not been put
upon the words. I thank the House that
they do not think me so unworthy as lo re
