President Tait Yetoi's Sundry Chili
Bill and .New Mexico Senator
Talks Indian Bill to Death.
Washington, March 4.?Two of the j
annual appropriation bills necessary I
to the maintenance of the Federal J
government failed to passage to day, i
tvhen the 62nd congress wound up its j
Senator Fall, of New Mexico, holding
the floor through the closing
hours of the session, talked the Indian
appropriation bill to death with
its 112,000,000 for the support of the
Jndian service, while President Taft
wrote his veto on the $115,000,000 to
~uke care o the "sundry civil defense"
of the government.
The house repassed the sundry civil j
oill over the veto, but when it reached |
~he senate, Senator Poindexter ob-1
;.ected to any appropriation for the
Washington police force unless an investigation
had be^n made of the rio?ous
scenes atending the suffrage parade
Monday and the senate did not
get to a vote on the bill.
Mr. Taft vetoed the sundry civil bill
oecause of its provisions exempting
.abor unions and farmer'* organizaxions
from prosecution under tne antitrust
jaw. Most of the appropriation
-.vould not take effect until July 1, (
.nowever, and the new congress will
be able to prepare appropriation measures
by tnat time.
The provision to which Mr. Tai't object-cu
pruviueu tnat no iunus could ue
spent in prosecution 01 organizations

comomauon or agreement naung in

been awaited with eager anticipation,
.t is "Bunty Pulls the Strings", which
is bringing everybody to its feet,
wherever played. It conies to the
opera house Friday, March 7, and
if there is one vacant seat that ni^ht j

jig hit, the biggest known in years, j
You may as well see it now and you'll!
be glad you went, for above all is the i
atmosphere of cleanliness that ob- i

of the Xew York press well said:
"Bunty is as fresh as a sprig of
heather u,;id as pure as a breeze from

CLAIMED COULD RESTORE LIFE 1!
Alletrod Religious Fanatic Savedk
from Greenville Mob.
Greenville, March 6.?L. F. Free, a *
white man said to be an itinerant!
sign painter and alleged religious fa- j
natic, was placed in jail tonight by;
Sheriff Rector to save him from a mob j
that had gathered in a suburban millj
village, many in the gathering having:
become incensed over the failure of j
Frec's alleged claim to restore life to j
an infant that died Monday.
From what can be gathered of the I
facts surrounding the affair it seems!
that Free and another so-called "Holi- j
ness" fanatic, claiming to have power I
to work miracles, and having heard of j.
the death of the infant of James Bal-!.
lew, went to his home and told the j
sorrowing mother and father that they !
! could restore life to the child. The;
! parents, crusnea in gnei ana sawyea
; by pleadings of the two men, it is said
allowed them to begin their gruesome
work, which, it seems, consisted mainly
in twisting and distorting the little
lifeless body until the coroner toi
night found it nothing more than a
mass of bruised flesh. Officials will!
probably take the case in hand tomor- i
