FREE HOMES KILL PASSED.
Reservation Settlers Relieved Of An
Onerous Iliirtlen.
Washington, May 'A.— The house to
day, without division, paased the "free
homes" bill which has been pending he
lore congress for a Dumber of years.
The bill provides that the government
shall issue patents to actual bona iide
settlers on agricultural lands of Indian
reservations opened to settlement.
These lands were taken up by settlers,
who contracted to pay for them $1.2.">
to $3.75 per acre. By the terms of the
bill the government assumes the pay
ment of the purchase price to the Indians
and changes the existing law relative to
agricultural colleges so as to insure the
payment of the endowments which here
tofore have come out of the sale of pub
lic lands in case of deficiency. These
payments involve $1,200,000 anuuallv.
Of the 2'.>,000 ) 000 acres in Indian res
ervations opened to settlement for which
the government is to pay or has paid
$35,000,000, about 8,000,01>0 acres
have been taken and about 2,000,000
are supposed to be still available for
agricultural purposes.
A remarkable thing in connection with
the passage of the bill today was a
speech in its favor by Galusha A. Grow,
of Pennsylvania, the venerable ex-speak
er of the house who forty-eight years
ago fathered and passed the original
homestead bill. He was then theyoung
est and is now the oldest member of the
house. His speech was on "Man's Right
to the Soil."
Mr. Grow was given an ovation.
By unanimous consent it was ordered
that his original Lomestead speech be
printed in the Record.
"I was the youngest member of the
house," eaid he, "1 am now the oldest."'
Gonipers Denes the Court.
New York, May 6.—Samuel Gompers,
president of the American Federation of
Labor, announced today that he had
come here not to confer with the rail
road officials in regard to the threatened
railroad strike, but to openly defy the
injunction granted by Justice Freed man
against the striking cigarmakers, which
prohibits them from picketing or at
tempting in any way to deter others
from taking their places and eDJolns
sympathizers from giving financial aid
for the purpose of continuing the strike.
"I have contributed to the fund for
pickets,"' said he, "and tomorrow morn
ing I shall speak to the strikers and urge
them to keep on in spite of injunctions."
A Woman's Awful Peril.
"There is only onecbance.tosaveyour
life and that is through an operation"
were the startling words heard by Mrs.
I. B. Hunt of Lime Kidge, Wis., from
her doctor after he had vj^inly tried to
cure her of a frightful case of stomach
trouble and yellow jaundice. Gall stones
had formed and she constantly grew
worse. Then she began to use Electric
Bitters which wholly cured her. It's a

WHEAT STORAGE LAW
Continued from Fir.-t Page.
qualified and special property in it, with
the right to its possession, and that he
<l'd so with the intent of thus defraud
ing the company and benefiting himself
by appropriating it to his own use, then
I instruct you that this element of the
offense is made out by the proof. And,
| again, whether this appears from the
evidence to your minds, beyond a
reasonable doubt, that, for the purpose
of depriving the company of the posses
sion of this wheat and of its interest, if
it had any interest, in this wheat, he
wilfully and fraudulently failed to ac
count to it, upon reasonable request so
to do by it, for this wheat, or for any
portion of it, with the purpose of ap
propriating the wheat to his own use
and of depriving the company of the
wheat and its rights, if it had any
rights, therein and with the intent and
purpose of secreting or concealing from
the company what had become of the
wheat, this element of the offeuse would
be established.
It is also necesw ry that the proof
show, beyond a reasonable doubt, that
the act or acts constituting the offense
were committed by the defendant in this
county. It must, therefore, so appear
by the evidence that the wheat of Streib
was stored with the warehouse company
in this county, and that it was fraudu
lently converted by the defendant to
his own u*e in this county, or that it
was his duty, when requested, to ac
count for it in this county: that such
request, if any request whs made upon
him, by the company were made in this
county and that he wilfully, fraudulently
und feloniously failed to account to the
company therefor in this county. In
other words, it must be shown by the
evidence, beyond a reasonable doubt,
that all the acts of the defendant, con
stituting the offense, if you find that the
offense were committed by him at all,
were committed by him in this county.
I will repeat, gentlemen, that it is
necessary that the evidence in this case
satisfy you beyond a resonal doubt,
that the warehouse company was and is
a corporation, doing a warehouse busi
ness in this county; that the defendant
was, between the Ist day of June, 18!»'J,
and the 2!>th day of January, 1000, or
for a part of that time, its manager and
agent, having been duly employed as
such by it: that, during that time, he
received of George Streib the wheat, or
a part of the wheat, described in the in
formation, for and on behalf and in the
name of that company for storage by
it for (ieorge Streib for hire; that he
afterward, and while so intrusted by the
company with that wheat, or a part of
it, fraudulently converted the same, or
a jtart of it, to his own use, or that he
wilfully, fraudulently and feloniously
failed to account to it for the same after
ho receiving it and before the tiling of
the information in this case; that the
wheat so fraudulently converted by him
to his own use, or for which he failed to
account to the company, was of some
value, and that he committed these acts
within this county.
If the state has proved all these facts,
beyond a reasonable doubt, it is entitled
to your verdict finding him guilty as
charged in the information; if it has
failed to so establish them by competent
evidence, the defendant is entitled to
your verdict acquitting him of this
charge.
The state is not required, however,,
to prove these facts by direct and posi
tive evidence. It may do so by circum
stantial evidence. Circumstantial evi
dence is legal and competent evidence in
criminal cases, and where it is all con
sistent with the hypothesis of the guilt
of the person accused ot crime and is not
consistent with the hypothesis of his
innocence and where it establishes his
guilt beyond a reasonable doubt—where
all the evidence can be reconciled with
the assumption of his guilt, and cannot
be reconciled with assumption of his
innocence, and produces iv your minds
an abiding conviction to a moral cer
tainty of his guilt, it is your imperative
duty, under the law and under your
oath, to render a verdict finding him
guilty of the charge, just as you would
if it were all direct and positive evidence,
and you would violate your oath if you
should fail to do so. Nor is it necessary
that you should be absolutely certain of
his guilt. This is impossible, in the
nature of things, and the law does not
require it. If it did, few crimes, perhaps,
would be punished. Moral certainty of
guilt, therefore, satisfies the law in this
respect, But, before rendering a verdict
of guilty in this case, you should, after
a consideration of all the evidence, feel
morally certain of the guilt of the
accused. And if, after considering all
the evidence in this case, though much
of it be circumstantial, it appears to
your minds to be consistent with the
supposition that the defendant is guilty
of this charge and inconsistent with the
supposition that he is innocent, and you
feel morally certain, though not abso
lutely certain, that he is guilty of the
larceny by embezzlement charged, if you
have a firm conviction abiding in your
minds that he is guilty of larceny by
embezzlement, ac charged, you will fail
in your duty and violate your oath if
you do not return a verdict declaring
him guilty of that charge. But if, on
the other hand, the whole evidence in
the case, as you view it, is just as con
sistent with the assumption of his inno
cence as with the assumption of his
guilt, or if you do not feel morally
certain of his guilt—if you have a sub
stantial, a sensible, a reasonable doubt,
resting upon the unsatisfactory char
acter of the evidence to establish his
guilt—your duty is just as imperative to
acquit him,
Any person accused of crime in this
state may offer himself as a witness in
his defense and may testify in his own
behalf, but cannot be compelled, and is
under no obligation to do so; and his
failure or refusal to go on the stand and
testify raises no inference of guilt against

Texas Populists Anti-Fusion.
Fort Wortb, Tex., May 1.-The popu
list state convention met here today and
held a very stormy session. About .'l5O
delegates were present, but only 69 of
the 242 counties in the state were repre
sented. The Cincinnati faction, or nnti
fusiODist element, was largely in the
majority. Those who favored the Sioux
Palls convention walked out of the con
vention. They did not hold a separate
convention as they were too few in num
bers, but issued a statement in which it
wan stated that only one-fourth of the
counties were represented and that the
delegates had determined to ignore the
regolaily constituted national conven
tion. The anti fusionists adopted reso
lutions recognizing the Cincinnati con
vention as "the only regular and author
ized populist convention" and instructed
delegates tonttend it.
Gold Shipments to England.
New York, May 7.—Ft was estimated
by foreign experts today that gold ex
ports during the week were likely to be
between |3,000,000 and |5,000,000. In
other quarters these are regarded as ex
travagant figures. In all probability,
however, one or more shipments of gold
wili be made to London.
