Monague, who deserted the routine of
army life, for the career of a "gentleman"
bandit, was brought into court
today and held in $.">,000 bail.
Messages from Pittsburg and Philadelphia
tend to confirm the young
man's boasts that he operated success
fully in those cities. In nis aiary uv
had credited himself with robberries
also in New York, Buffalo and
Cleveland. He- visited only express
and railroad ticket offices.
Monague came to town on Tuesday
and registered at a good hot-el as William
J. Clayton. He spent two days
looking over the town before deciding
tc ai^mpt the robbery of an uptown
ticket office. His selection was an unforiunate

place last evening and demanded the

that he was a "gentleman' bandit. He

'I never took from the poor/' he said
proudly. "My game was those who had
more than they needed. For instance
in Pittsburg, when I held up an office
there hi; employee told me that the

Mor.ague said that in robbing an office
in Cl-evelahd, he could find no rope
with which to tie the clerk. "I told him
to cut out the window cord," he continued
and after he had handed it to

Back to 1S40 Tariff.
Kansas City, January 16.?"We must I
go back to the tariff of lS4fi for a solution
of our tariff problem," said
Vice President-fleet Marshall here today
on his way to Arizona. "We've got
to get back to the time when the people
of the country had equal opportunities;
back to the time when there was
old-fashioned competition, old-fashion
; ed rewards of comfortable living and
tranquil old age for labor.
"If I know Mr. Wilson and old-fashioned
democracy they propose to go
back to first principles. We propose
first to go back to a constitutional
i tariff. Th-e tariff has corrupted tnis
country more than anything else. It
has corrupted good men and made bad
! men worse.
"I "don't care how good a man is,
give him a tariff favor at the -expense
of his neighbor and you weaken his
moral fiber. In a little while he can
see no wrong in buying a franchise
from a city council.

HOtfE RULE BILL.
Passes English House of Commons.?
Has been Fought fcfr,
for Many Years.
Ixmdon, Jan. 16.?After a long,
stern battle the home rule bill passed
the house of commons tonight by
a majoity of 110. Later it was read
for the first time in the house of lords.
There were two divisions in the
lower house. Mr. Balfour's motion
for its rejection was defeated, 3 58 to
368, while the third reading was carried
by a vote of 367 to 257, one member
on each side having left the house
in the interval.
The result of the election was too
much ol a foregone conclusion for a
tremendous demonstration, but Irishmen
inside and outside the house did
their best and, assisted by the liberals
and laborites, gave the measure for
which they had waited and worked so
long a good sendoff on its way to tne
house of lords, where its fate certainly
