Most Important Economic Question

• WASHINGTON, Feb. 21.— When the
senate convened today Mr. Carmack, a
' member of the committee on Interstate
commerce, presented a petition for
- railroad rate legislation. Mr. Berry
immediately asked as to the prospect
for railroad rate legislation. Mr. Cnr
mflck gave place to Mr. Elklns, chair
man of the committee, to make reply.
Mr. Elklns said:
"The bill passed by the house reached
the senate several days ago. During
that time the senate has had almost
continuous sessions, but only one friend
of the railroads has been heard. The
committee has given the best atten
tion possible to the bill, but there has
■••been no time to consider the amend
ments and there are several believed
to be Important. No decision as to an
.effort to pass the bill this session has
■been reached, but it would seem that
there Is very. little prospect of that
result before adjournment, with only
ten days of the session left, and with
' much other imperative business to be
■ performed. It would hardly seem
. probable that the most important
economic question of the day could be
disposed of in. so short a time, espec
ially in view of the fact that only one
: side of the question has so far been
;,' presented to the committee." .
'"■■". '." Bryan's Ablest Lieutenant
; Mr. Carmack, a member of the com
, mlttee on Interstate commerce, said
that he ; could assure ,the senate that
committee, are actuated, by
"a.keen desire to execute at the earliest
. ''possible moment the promlsen mftde by
' the*presldent of the United States and
■ the medium of the domestic
« platform, and added that "it is' our de
..Hlre to be guided in. this matter by the
I president. Indeed," he added, "I may
■go farther and say, knowing the chair
man of the committee will correct me
if I am wrong, that I am authorized to
inform the senate that all the mem-
Ibers recogflnize in the president the
j foremost disciple- and the ablest lieu
tenant of William J. Bryan."
f Object to Government Ownership
.Ex-Senator Higgins finished his pre
liminary statement in opening the de
fense for Judge Swayne, one witness
; for Judge Swayne was examined, and
the senate then began consideration of
'.; the 'bill for the government of the
'isthmian canal zone.
Teller and Bailey took ex
ception to the provision authorizing
\ the< use of the rentals of the Panama
railroad in constructing the canal
- without first turning them into the
treasury, and the bill was amended so
as to meet the objection. Mr. Bailey
also objected to the acquisition of the
• Panama railroad by the government,
v but said that if the government really
j wanted the road It should be con
demned outright. • ■
■ -: Mr."* Teller also expressed the opinion
that the ownership of the Panama rail
• road would be j construed as a prece
dent, for government ownership, and
j said that the ownership by the govern
ment of all the railroads of the United
States would present a condition
"frightful to contemplate."
. . ; Th« i' bill was not completed, and it
. was ''arranged that the senate would
meet at 1 o'clock tomorrow and, after
I reading Washington's farewell address,
resume Its consideration.

SENATOR STEPHEN B. ELKINJ
PAROLE BREAKERS
TO BE RETURNED
RUSSIAN EXCUSES WILL NOT
BE ENTERTAINED
Grave Breach of Military and Inter
national Law Committed by the
Prisoners Who Violated
Sacred Pledge' '
Special to Ths Htrald. ' , j]
WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 21.— This
government will make a peremptory
demand on Russia for the return to
this country of the three officers of
the Russian cruiser Lena, who violated
their parole at San Francisco and went
back to St. Petersburg. No excuse
will be .accepted and no arguments will
be listened to, as this government feels
that Russia should have returned the
fugitives of her own accord the mo
ment they reached St. Petersburg ami
reported to the naval authorities there,
as it is now known they did some timo
ago. j The officers themselves, as well
as their superiors, knew they were
guilty of a grave breach of both mili
tary and International law in going
back to Russia. •
.A. complete report on the case was
received by the navy department today
from Admiral MoCalla, in commapd ; ,of
the, Mare Island navy yard, In whose
custody the Russian officers, were when
they broke parole. The Russians be
longed Ito the Russian cruiser Lena,
which put Into the port of. San Fran
cisco several weeks ago in a partially
disabled condition, and was held thnra
under international law until the war
between Russia and Japan should end.
The officers of the vessel remained
practically as prisoners of war in the
custody of the United States, but were
allowed to visit the city of San Fran
cisco on their pledge that they would
not avail themselves of the liberty thus
granted to return to Russia.
Admiral McCalla's report shows that
two midshipmen and an engineer vio
lated ■ this pledge and returned to St.
Petersburg, where they reported to the
Russian navy department for new as
signments to duty. It is the. feeling
here ir that they should have been re
turned to the United States at. once
by the ,' Russian authorities. As this
was not done this government will now
insist j. that they be immediately sent
back! . . . .

LOS ANGELES, CAL., WEDNESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY pa, 1905.
FIRES AT WOMAN;
KILLS HIMSELF
JEALOUS DAIRYMAN ATTEMPTS
DOUBLE TRAGEDY
GIRL JUMPS FROM WINDOW
Intended Victim Escapes by Plunging
From a Second Story Room
to the Street
Below
After sp»ndln(r several weeks In nn
endeavor to persuade the wnitinn he
loved to turn from a life of shame and
marry him, I'letrn Mnrvanl, a dalry
mnn. became desperate yesterday af
ternoon when a final refusnl was made
by the woman and chased her from a
room In the Eden cafe on Allro street,
firing;- at her >hs she leaped from the
window. jjMafcanl then turned the
weapon upon himself and fired a bullet
through hla own head.
Marcani arrived In Los Angeles from
San Francisco about 11 week ago, ac
companied by the woman, who gave
the name of Laura Williams. The
couple stayed at a number of cheap
lodging houses on ''Main street and
rented a room at the lodging house
above the Eden enfe at Alameda and
Aliso streets Monday afternoon.
.Tuesday afternoon Marcani ordered
a number of bottles of wine and went
to hla room with the woman. A short
time later passers-by on Allso street
heard terrified shrieks, accompanied
by a revolver shot.
Woman Jumps From Window
At the same time a scantily clad
woman threw open a window of a
room on the second floor of the build-
Ing and screamed for help. A few feet
below her a long, slnnting: porch roof
extended the length of the building,
and upon this she plunged head first
and rolled to the edge, falling fifteen
feet to the gutter below,, where she
lay in semi-consciousness.
As she leaped from the window a
second shot was fired at her from the
room, and then the window -was closed
and.a few minutes later two shots were
fired in the room.
The woman was carried to i the
French bakery until the . ambulance
arrived, which bore.her to the .receiv
ing hospital.-- ':_.: _. •..
Following the sound of the shots, an
officer arrived at ths cafe and endeav
ored i to i • enter the room where the
shooting occurred. The door was
locked and braced on the Inside and
the officers were compelled to climb
from tho outer porch to the window
before forcing an entrance.
Bullet Through Door
Marcanl's body was found on- the
floor beside the bed. He was dead and
a bleeding wound in the- right side of
his neck Just below the ear showed
where his shot had taken effect. The
door on the opposite side of the room
had been perforated by a 38-caliber
bullet similar to the ones used in the
weapon in the dead man's hand, and it
is thought that in hi 3 excitement Mar
cani missed the first shot in his sui
cidal attempt.
At the hospital the woman sobbed
out her story. She had arrived in Los
Angeles with Marcani, who formerly
lived at 511 Broadway, San Francisco,
a week, ago last Sunday. Marcani pro
posed marriage. To this the woman
would not consent and a quarrel en
sued. , [y
Yesterday afternoon Marcani in
sisted upon a final answer to his prop
osition of marriage. The woman re
fused and the man spent some tirna
in scribbling on a piece of paper. When
he had finished he turned upon her anil
drew his revolver. At sight of the
weapon the woman leaped to the cor
ner of "the room and threw up hey
arms to shield herself. In doing so she
warded off the revolver and pushed
the muzzle skyward, sending the bullet
into the celling. The man staggered
back and, -grasping at the slisht chance
of escape, the woman leaped from the
window.
"1 could not hold onto anything so
I rolled to the edge where my cloth
ing caught in the gutter," she said as
she told the story to detectives.
Heard Whizz of Bullet
"As I lay there, I heard a second
shot and heard the sing of a bullet as
it passed over me and then I slipped
and fell over the edge to the curb
ing, about fifteen feet below."
When the woman was lifted from
the ground she said: "Let me get
away quick; I want to get away from
here." At that moment the two other
shots were heard and she was told
that her companion had committed sui
cide. She again begged to be allowed
to depart in spite of the fact that sh.i
was bleeding profusely from the cuts
and abrasions on her face and body.
Unless Internal Injuries develop It Is
thought that hlib will be able to leave
the liiisplliil ill v few day*.
Begs Forgiveness
The only property found belonging
to the dead mini consisted of two
wuto.lien, his revolver, (II) cents and his
no^e of farewell to the world, The
note was written, on dirty paper with
v pencil and ran in a sort-of rude
poetry- "I nave '°ved and lost and my
love has cost me well. My fondest
hopes an; criiHhed and my grief. 1 can
not tell," were the opening lines.' The

MANCHURIA REMAINS CHINESe
X«t, Petersburg Holds That the War
Is Near Conclusion, Although
Russia May Risk a Final
Battle
lly Aoaociateii Prti* ,
LONDON, Feb. 21.-A dispatch to
neuter's. Telegram company 'from 8L
Petersburg, confirming the Associated
Press advices of February 17 and 18
from St. Petersburg to the effect that
the question of peace was under con
sideration, adds: "The question of
peare haa not only been formally dis
cussed, I but the conditions on which
Russia Is prepared to make peace have
practically been agreed upon. These
are ns follows:
"Korea to be placed under Japanese
suzerainty.
"Port Arthur Biid the Liao Tung
peninsula to be ceded to Japan.
"Vladivostok to be declared a neutral
port with 'an open door.
"The eastern Chinese railroad to be
placed under neutral international ad
ministration.
"Manchurli. ns far north as Harbin
to be restored as an integral part of the
Chinese empire.
Where the Trouble Lies
"The difficulty ' lies in settling the
question of Indemnity, upon which It
is known that Japan Insists, but It Is
thought that this difficulty Is not in
superable.
. "The most trustworthy opinion at St.
Petersburg is that, In view of the In
ternal situation , and the enormous
difficulty In carrying on the war, pence
on the terms outlined will be concluded
within a comparatively short time if
the indemnity question can be ! ar
ranged, but It is quite possible that
Russia will risk another battle before
a decision is reached."
EUROPE EXPECTING PEACE
Terms Outlined More Than Japan
Asked Before the War
By A«soelate<l Press. - '
■ : , LONDON. Feb. 22.T7'l'hc rumors that
pence between ' Russia and* ->'iiipan Is
near are accepted by the press of Lon
don this morning as having strong in
herent probability.
! It Is. pointed out as perhaps signifi
cant thiit Count Benckendorff, the
Russian ambassador, has had several,
audiences recently with King Edward,
and that the king on Sunday received
tin audience Mr. Sprlng-Rlce, councillor
of the British embassy at St. Peters
burg, who has just returned from
Washington, where he was received by
President« Roosevelt and Secretary Hay.
According to continental reports the
emperor of Austria has used his efforts
to persuade Emperor Nicholas to seek
peace. It is suggested that the terms
as outlined by the St. Petersburg cor
respondent of the Ueuter Telegram
company may be regarded; as forming
an extremely possible basis for peace,
as they are held to include, more than
Japan claimed before the war.
Japanese Minister Reticent
Minister Hayashi, who .was inter
viewed by the Associated Press last
night, said he considered the suggested
terms highly Interesting, but said he
was not aware of any new factor tend
ing to induce ! Russia to make over
tures, and had no. Intimation pointing
to the conclusion of peace^ Ne|ther
would he say what terms would be ac
ceptable to Japan.

NO HOPE FOR
ENTOMBED MEN
MANY MANGLED CORPSES ARE
RECOVERED -
Probability, Is That Not One of All
the Impr.soned Men Will Es
cape From the Mine
Alive
By Associated Press.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 21.— Tho
scene at the Virginia mine this after
noon where c terrlftV after-damp ex
plosion yesterday afternoon Imprisoned
116 men 700 feet below the surface, wn»
the most gruesome and harrowing that
has ever been witnessed In this section
of .'Alabama. Of the miners who en
tered the mine yesterday afternoon so
far only fifty bodies have been'recov
ered. The recovery already of so many
dead bodies precludes the Idea that
any living men remain among the un
fortunates still in the mine.
The corpses are frightfully mangled
and disfigured and Identification is al
most impossible. Many of them are so
badly bruised and twisted and discol-'
ored that negroes cannot be told from
white men.
One hundred families and 300 chil
dren are left destitute by the calamity
and without means of support, and
they are of the best class of mining
families in Alabama.
The bodies of the victims, which in
many cases have been gathered to
gether in pieces and brought to the
surface, are placed In rows on a rough
platform, and tonight ambulances be
gan the removal of those so far re
covered to Bessemer.
The excavation- of the debris has
been hampered. The foul gases which
had collected in the stope made neces
sary the use of safety lamps, and it
was found that less than a score of
safety lamps were available" In the dis
trict. Union miners went to the scene
from practically all the mining camps
within a radius of twenty-five miles to
aid In the work of rescue.
Out of the .fifty bodies recovered up
to this time one was found about 4
o'clock which was barely alive. The
miner was carefully taken from the
mine and heroic methods resorted to to
bring the man to consciousness. He I*
still ullve, but scant hope Is held out
for his recovery.
President Flynn of the Alabama Mine
Workers said tonight:
"I shall be surprised If a single per
son escapes alive from that mine. Ven
tilation Is very difficult, and If the
men were not killed by the explosion
they certainly hnve been suffocated by
the gases. The bodies so far recovered
were In the. main stope, and It will
bo several days before wo can get to
the rooms which branch oft from the
main stope."

DETROIT, Mich., Feb. 21.— Believing
his young wife was among the victims
of the Iroquols disaster, Johnson Rich

girl wife seriously ill and the meeting
between the couple was touching. Rich
