The Franchise Tax Bill Passed.
Several Other Bills Receive
Their Third Reading; in
At the morning session of the sen
ate Wednesday two bills of much i m
portance were disposed of. The slot
machine bill provides with certain
amendments that no machines shall
be'either operated or kept on any one's
premises. The exemptions made are
as to machines in which the coin put
in gets a certain and uniform return
and in which there is no element of
chance. The other bill is that to tax
I the franchises of corporations, that is,
I on a basis of the amount of business
I dune. Both of these bills were sent
I to the house. ?
As said, the slot machine bill was
amended so as to exempt weighing,'
measuring, musical and vending ma
chines and all machines which give for
the coin a certain fair and uniform
return and to which there is no ele
ment of chance. Thus it is seen that
slot gas and electric meters, telephone
booths, shoe lace, chewing gum ma
chines, weighing machines and those
of a like kind will not be shut out.
The exemptions were made through
amendments by Senators Hydrick and
Sheppard. The bill also provides that
none of the machines not exempted
shall be kept on anyone's premises.
There was a very lengthy debate on
the bill, some senators wishing to j
iexempt the slot machines indicated, |
j others wishing to kill the use of all i
I and others taking the position that
the bill was striking against the rights
of the individual. The matter of

Senator Peurifoy opposed the one
half mill tax on the property values of
corporations as he was convinced that
it would keep out of the State foreign
corporations and force some domestic
ones to suspend business.
Senator Walker made an expected
move when he proposed to kill the bill.
He did not think that the State should -
enforce double taxation and that was
what che bill amounted to. John
Smith, the merchant, cannot be taxed
but if his firm is the John Smith com
pany he is subject to taxatiou unless
protected by ''limited liability" which
Senator Walker thought was really
meant by the constitutional convention
as a help to corporate interests. He
could understand the taxation of the
intangible property of the express,
telegraph and telephone companies,
but the railroads own tangible proper
ty which could be taxed.
Senator G. W. Ragsdale said he did
not think this was the right way to
raise money and that he agreed with
Senator Walker. He did not think it
would be just to exempt merchautile
institutions. It is not right to make
one pay a tax which his competitor
does not and thus it, is not right toex
i empt any. I f money had not been ex

lall State corporations other than those

j one-half mill tax.
, Senator Raysor spoke against any j
I distinction of this kind. He thought
any corporation of any kind should be
willing to pay I he fee for the privilege
J of being incorporated.
Senator McLeod announced thai he j
'was personally interested in mercan
tile concerns and that he though I it

I to pay this fee. They are not now re

Tillman On Hanna.

"Senator Hanna won a place for

"He was one of the true type of

American manhood that does things.
We have had men in the senate more

time a very much maligned man; in
fact, during one of the latest talks I
had with him we laughingly discussed
our relative grievances In that re
spect. I remember that I remarked
to him that if we were both as bad
as we were sometimes made out to be
we ought to be hung.

STOEY OP A BATTLE.
The Whole Truth About the First
Fight at Port Arthur.
JAPS LOST THREE WAR VESSELS.
What an English Correspondent Says
About the Losses of the Rus
sians and the Japanse
There has been a great deal written
about the first battle between the
Japanese and Russians at Port Arthur.
It was claimed that the Russians lost
three vessels, while the Japanese loss
was nothing. These dispatches came
from Japanese sources, as was censor
ed to suit them. It now appears that
the Japanese lost more than the Rus
sians. The correspondent of the Lon
don Morning Post, which paper is op
posed to the Russians and in favor of
the Japanese, cabling from Manchuria
to his paper on Wednesday says:
''I have just reached here by special
train from Port Arthur, and, to save.'

traveling on a locomotive. About
midnight on Monday. Feb. 8th, the
town was roused by the Bring of big
guns. 1 hastened to a hill battery
and saw that six Japanese torpedo
boats had approached within half a
mile of the Russian fleet and were
showing lights, funnels and signals
just like those of the Russians. The
Japanese torpedo boats crept quite
close to the Russian ships before they

cruiser Pallada. The three damaged

Notwithstanding the continuous lire
from the ships and forts, four of the
Japanese torpedo boats escaped. One,
however, was sunk, and another,
which was in a sinking condition, was
deserted by her crew anr7 was after
wards captured by the Russians.
The action ceased at :i a. m. The
loss on the Russian ships was eight
killed and twenty wounded. Apart
from the disablement of three Russian
ships, the damage done to the lleet
and forts was not very great. ? There
were many Russian torpedo boat de
stroyers in the harbor, but they were
not ready to resist the attack. The
Japanese, in fact, created a great deal
of surprise, not only by their unex
pected onlslaught, but by the prompt
ness and bravery with which they
On Tuesday morning, Feb. 9. news
arrived from Dalny that the Japanese
fleet was steering westward, in attack
formation. It came in sight about 11
a. m. There were in all fifteen ships,
two lines of battle?six battleships,
six first-class cruisers and three sec

Tsarevitch, the latter the flagship of
Rear Admiral Mol las, and the Retvi

the inner harbor entrance. It was
The action was commenced by the
big guns of the land battery. The
morning was dull, with a light wind,
and the heavy smoke rendered it diffi
cult to observe the details of the ac
tion, but J witnessed all that was pos
sible from Beacon Hill, opposite the
entrance to the harbor, in line of the
lire. Two shells fell near us and
about twenty others fell in the old
town and the western harbor where
many steamers Hying neutral Hags
were anchored. After the commence
ment of the action all of the people
lied toward a hill outside the town,
under protect ion.
A little while, after the first shell
was tired a big 12-inch one exploded, j
smashing t he office fronts of t be Suen-1
berg's Valu Concessions Company,
and the Pusso-Chinese bank. The
si reels were then entirely deserted
bill the local police kepi splendid
order. There was no looting: women
and children were very brave. On
both sides I encountered over .'?uo
shells, few of which reached t he mark.
(Ubers did not explode. During the
action several merchant steamers out
side the roads moved their position,
but none was allowed to leave its an
chorage in ihe harbor.
Regiments from the adjoining bar
racks and camps came pouring through
the town to take up defensive posi
tions in the event of the Japanese
landing. The Japanese warships
steamed slowly past, in line of battle,
