OLYMPIA, Feb. 4.—ln the first
lilj; test of strength on a cleur
cut isstae between reactionaries
and progressives trie former won
out yesterday in the house, twice
defeating the proposition to
amend the constitution to extend
the recall to the .tiidiciury.
• The fight opened in the morn
iiiK on the hill of Corkery of S|k>
kane to submit to the people t'.ie
judicial recall. The chamber re
sounded with oratory for a cou
ple of hours and then the bill
went down to defeat with HO 'or
it to :I2 against, lacking live votes
of the required two third ma
, ority.
At the noon recess Sam U.
Bumner of Chelan agreed to move
a reconsideration in the afternoon
as his only objection to the bill
was it failed to provide judicial
review of the sufficiency of the
petitions. The motion was made
and again the bill was precipitat
ed into the house for a stormy
i,arliamentary battle.
Thomas Murphine attempted to
have the bill set over for » special
order to give the recall advocates
time to gether their forces but
the speaker and the house stood
against him. A second vote was
forced and the bill went down
again 53 to 40. '.

Startling charges that she was
sold when seven years of age by
an orphanage superintendent to a
gypsy for $SOO and that for eight
years she has served him as a

compelled to pose as a fortune
teller and dancing and singing
girl, giving her earnings to the
man and suffering frequent beat
ings.
The girl for some weeks had
been telling fortunes in a little
booth on Mi*"n street. The other
day, she says, Bhe earned $21,
which she took to her master, but
the latter was not satisfied with
this, she declares, and she was
compelled to go to some place, the
location of which she does not
know, and dance and sing before
men until a late hour.
The arresting officer was told
of the case by a girl in whom the
child had confided. The humane
society was called in, the child
turned over to the. juvenile court
and an investigation begun. The
police are seeking the gypsy.

Malting and lirokenly, Mrs. Bain
told of what she believed her

she tv unable to proceed, but
finally, revived under the kindly
promptings of the attorneys, she
gripped herself, and the story of
the alleged bribery poured out, in
terspersed by occasional quick
sobs or Hasps for breath.

in a soft gray gown and bonnet,
she was helped to the witness

the questioning of the attorneys,
she recited the story of the visit

She then described how she
