IJAHT LAP OP 62D CONGRESS.
Democrat? '.Viii Busy Themselves
Preparing for Tariff Reforms.
Washington, Jan. 2.-The last lap
of the third and last session of thc
Sixty-second Congress began to-day
at noon. The Congress will die on
March 4, Immediately following the
inauguration of President Woodrow
Wilson. The new Congress will be
Democratic in both Houses for tho
Ii nt time in sixteen years.
Vhlle much important legislation
is pending in the Sixty-second Con
gress, it is not likely that much of
lt will be passed. Tho session will
be devoted almost entirely to the
passage of appropriation bills.
The Senate will resumo the Arch
bold impeachment trial to-morrow,
and the Democrats will continue to
resist the conilrmation of any of
President Taft's appointments.
The House adjourned until to-mor
row In respect to the memory of tho
late Representative John G. Mc
Henry, of Pennsylvania. Leader
Underwood and his colleagues, how
ever, put in the day planning the tar
iff revision work.
Senator Joseph W. Bailey to-day
sang Iiis swan song in the United
State's Senate. He attacked the ini
tiative and referendum as in conflict
with representative government and
calculated to destroy the public.
Bailey was heard hy thc largest and
most represe! nal ive audience that
bas gathered at 111 - * capital al this
Tho galleries were ero wiled with
fashionably dressed women and men.
Practically every Senator was in his
teat and many prominent members
came over from tho house to bear
Hailey. The progressive element was
represented by Victor .Murdock,
Judge Norris, Congressmen Cooper
and Davis, of Minnesota, while Ex
Speaker Cannon, Cicero Payne and
John Dalzell were there as stand
Peculiar interest attached to Bai
ley's speech, as it was the under
standing that bis climax would come
with tho tendering of his resignation
as a Senator of the United States.
Incidentally he was expected to dis
cuss what he calls "Cowardice in
Congress" and in this connection not
only pay his respects to the progres
sives of both parties in Congress, but
to include William J. Bryan and
i king ho
wido advertisement, thereby assur
ing crowded galleries, but to make
doubly certain that ho would have
an audience, Balley selected that day
of the re-convening of Congress,
knowing that the halls would bo
crowded ont of mere curiosity.
Bailey was not in his seat when
the Senate met. His chair was" va
cant until 12 o'clock, when his ap
pearance caused a whisper to pass
around the galleries. He had timed
himself ) that he would bold the
center of the stage from the second
he appeared. He was recognized by
the chair just one minute after he
reached the chamber and before he
look his seat.
"I am a Democrat," said Senator
Bailey, "and though I did not favor
his selection, no man living hopes
moro for the success of his adminis
tration than I do."
The Texan declared that no more
thorough presentation of tho charac
ter of representative government
ever had been made than in Prof.
"The wonder to me," he sa'd. " is
how any man could have understood
the necessity and controlling force
of council and discussion without
having actually been a part of a
great deliberative assembly."
Mr. Bailey said tho advocates of
the direct form of government de
clare they are not working for the
overthrow of this government.
"They are mistaken," he said, "in
the belief that they can establish a
direct form of government without
overthrowing the whole structure of
Senator Hailey charged that the
newspapers were largely responsible
for the "unrest."
"I have become convinced," be
said, "that the present great popular
unrest had Its beginning In what was
Intended as mero idle gossip."
Newspapers, ho said, began pub
lishing lists of "millionaire Sena
tors," apparently only because they
wanted "something to write," and
the demand for such matter became
Senator Hailey said it' any one
"wanted to organize a syndicate to
buy him out," he would be very glad
to have them offer less than half a
"And after the papers had gotten

tacking individual Senators, demand

DEATHS SHOW LESS LYNCHING.
Number of Executions for 1912 Dou
ble Those of 1011-Other Figures.
Chicago, Jan. 4.-The number of
lesal executions in the United States
in iQ12 shows a large increase u?
compared with those of the last few
years, being 145, as compared with
74 in 1911, 104 in 1910, 107 in
1909, and 92 in 1908. One hundred
and thirty-nine were put to death
for murder, four for assailing wo
men, one for attempting to do so, and
one for burglary. These figures were
compiled by the Chicago Tribune.
The number of lynchings In 1912
shows a gratifying decrease, and ls
the smallest since tbeBe records were
begun, In 1884, being 54, as com
pared with 71 in 1911. The num
ber of lynchings in the various
States was as follows:

Number of Suicides Increase.
The record ol" suicides shows an
Increase, the number for 1912 being
12,981. as compared with 12,242 in
1911. The proportion of suicides, as
between men and women remains
about the same, being 7,f>'"2 males,
and 5,349 females. Physicians, as
usual, head the list among profes
sional men, the number being 40, as
compared with 27 in 1911. Clergy
men come next, 8 having taken their
own lives. It is a curious fact that
few lawyers are guilty of suicide.
Among business men 14 bankers
have made way with themselves.
The causes of suicide were as fol
lows: Despondency, 6,321; unknown,
1,382; iusanity, 1,072; domestic in
felicity, i 220; iii health, 1,002;

The rnelaiiohol.v feature of these

number of those who were impelled
to commit suicide because of ill
health. Of the total number, 4,184
shot themselves, 3,926 took poison,
2,722 hanged themselves, 852
drowned themselves, 148 cut their
throats, 890 asphyxiated themselves,

ESTABLISH COTTON EXCHANGE.
Germany, Being Large Importer,
Will Look After Own Interests.
Herlin, Jan. li.-Germany's cotton
factors are about to take action
which will have an important bear
ing on the trading hitherto conduct
ed through the cotton exchanges
of New York and Liverpool. It
has been decided to establish a
cotton futures market, together with
a clearing house, at Bremen early in
the new year, probably in April. This
will result in the withdrawal of or
ders for millions of bales for future
delivery which German merchants
and manufacturers have hitherto
been compelled to send to J^i /erpool
or New York.

Exceptions Filed in Vaughn Case.
(Greenville Piedmont, Jan. 2.) j
Attorneys for T. U. Vaughn, now
under sentence of death In tho State
penitentiary for alleged wrong doing
while superintendent of the Odd Fel
lows' Orphan Home, have served
upon Solicitor Bonham .a paper set
ting forth the grounds upon which
they will appeal Vaughn's case to
the Supremo Court.
The appeal to the Sup?reme Court
asks that the verdict of the lower
court be set aside, which plea, If
granted, would necessitate a new
trial in the lower court. If the ap
peal is dismissed thc defendant-ap
pellant will bo sent back to the
lower court to be re-sentenced.
The principal exceptions for ap
peal refer to the three talesmen, N.
J. Rector, J. B. Brockman and G. W.
Morrow, who were rejected by the
presiding judge, and also to the re
fusal of the judge to bar another
talesman, Avery Patton, from Jury
duty; to the fact that Vaughn is sen
tenced to death by electrocution,
when the crime he is charged with
having committed was punishable by
banging at that, time; and that
Vaughn's confession was considered
by the court, jury and others as an
admission of guilt, as indicted, when
