!WAR TAX REPEAL. BILL IS PASSED
BY UNANIMOUS VOTE IN
MANY SPEECHES ON SHELF
Opposition to Majority Thus Saves
Destruction of a Straw Man
by Lengthy De
lEADEES DAZED BY MOVE
FROJI THE GLOBE BUREAU,
Washington, D. C.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 18.—The
cleverest strategy in this congress was
exhibited today when the Democrats,
under leadership of James N. Richardson,
of Tennessee, passed the war tax repeal
till by a unanimous vote. Forty speeches
prepared by Republicans and intended for
use In coming congressional campaigns
•were doomed to unuttered in desks ot
their authors. Later they may be printed
In the Record, but they will not be heard
on the floor.
The imaginary opposition against which
Republicans had prepared was shown to
not exist. The house leaders had ar
ranged for a two days' debate, but the
Democrats announced that they were
ready to vote immediately for the repeal
of war taxes. They saiu that any delay
would come from the other Bide.
Thus the straw man which Republicans
were preparing to annihilate was knocked
down before they had a chance for a
fight. All the Democratic minority asked
was a chance to amend the bill so as to
open up tae subject of revision of tariff.
The house leaders had prepared a rule
which forbidls all amendment.
They had whipped into line enough
Republican votes to support the rule.
Even Babcock, of Wisconsin, voted for
the rule, explaining that he would try
later to bring up his biii to take duties
from steel. In so doing, Richardson Bays,
Babcock lost the one opportunity in this
congress to get consideration for tariff.
The rule was opposed merely by Under
wood, of Alabama, and Ball, of Texas,
who said it was a misuse of ..he power
of the majority which stultified congress
in the eyes of the people.
It was soon evident that the rule had
enough votes to make it effective. Then
Richardteon rose and made his motion to
dispense with debate and put the bill to
an immediate vote. The speaker and
house leaders were dazed. There seemed
to be no answer to the challeng and the
vote was taken, 2'ia to 0.
DEMOCRATS MILL L.OSE XOTHIXG.
Crnmpa«ker Bill to Reduce Southern
Representation Is Doomed.
PROM THE GLOBE BUREAU,
Washington, D. C.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 18.—demo
crats in congress do not anticipate any
further trouble from the Crumpacker
bill to r&duce Southern representation n
the house of representatives end in the
electoral college. The election of the Re
publican caucus Monday night was, offi
cially, for invstigation but, practically, it
was for shelving the select committee of
eleven which the rules committee is
asked to appoint, instructed to report at
as ■early a date as is practicable.
The commission is not to be empowered
to go into Southern states to compel at
tendance of witnesses or to spend any
money on its labors. It is not likeiy tnat
it will report at an early date or that
the report will receive early atten
tion at the hands of congress. The ad
ministration is understood to deprecate
any such move as tending to arouse sec
tional hostility and house leaders have
been trying to find a quiet place to bury
ANTI OLEO BILL MAT FAIL.
Senate Amendments Calculated to
Make It Unconstitutional.
PROM THE GLOBE BUREAU,
Washington, D. C.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Feb. 18.-The
senate committee which has been con
sidering the anti-oleo bill is expected to
make a favorable report on the measure
tomorrow. The bill will be changed at
suggestion of oenators Spooner an- Nel
son so as to eliminate the clause com
pelling inspection of renovated butter. It
Is urged that this will vitiate the bill and
make it unconstitutional. Representative
Tawney has also urged that clause which
gives power to states to regulate the
traffic in oleo be stricken out and this
will probably be done.
The next fight of the dairymen will be
to get a place for their measure on the
senate calendar ahead of the shipping
Bubsidy bill. Last year they gave way
for this interest and by so doing lost
chance of success.
RAILROADS SUFFER DELAY OF

PLATTSBURGH, N. V., F e b. 18.-With
over two feet of loose light snow already
on the level throughout Northern New
York, a severe snow storm, the third of
the season, started yesterday afternoon
and still continues. A foot more of snow
has fallen, and the wind is blowing. The
freight traffic on all railway lines has

tered on keeping the main lines open for
passenger trains. The branch of the Dela

THE ST. PAUL GLOBE
SPEAKER IS A CZAR
ORDINARY MEMBER CUTS NO FIG
URE IN HOUSE.
FROM THE GLOBE BUREAU,
Washington, D. C.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—Since the
speaker and his few friends devised the
new style of "rule" which prevents the
offering of amendments, either by ma
jority or minority, and shuts off debate
at any hour convenient to their dining
time the helplessness—one might say use
le^sness—of the average member of the
house of representatives is brought out
in clearer lights. By "the average mem
ber" is meant any member outside the
committee on rules and the ways and
means committee. These, with the
speaker, constitute the house of repre
sentatives. They have decided that the
bill repealing the war taxes is to be
passed; they have decided that it is to
be passed without amendment; they have
decided that the debate shall be four
hours. That settles it. The other 350
members are of no more account than
so many wooden men worked with
Theoretically they have rights; prac
tically they are powerless. It requires
a certain number of votes in the house
to support the rule, otherwise the rule
would not be "brought in." Theoretically
a member has the right to vote against
a rule which applies the gag to his
mouth; practically he does not do it.
Ask the ordinary Republican why he
promises to support the rule of the
speaker and his friends and he will re
ply: "I've got to. If I stand out I am
blacklisted. I would be cut out on the
appropriation I am trying to get for a
public building in my district. I would
never be given a chance to address the
house; the speaker would refuse me rec
ognition. Under the rules I am at the
mercy of the speaker ana the committee
on rules. If all would stand together
and refuse we might carry our point,
but each member has got some little
matter or matters, pensions, claims, pub
lic buildings—things of vital interest to
his district—and rather than give these
up he will do what Payne, Dalzell and
the sneaker demand. So there you are.
I can't afford •to refuse."
Thus it comes about that the mem
bership of the house is reduced from
some, to some seven.

GHIN WAS TOO LARGE

SIVE FAT REMOVED FROM NECK.
BALTIMORE, Feb. 18.—Mrs. Florence
Shipley is recovering from a remarka
ble surgical operation at the University
hospital. Through the agency of the
surgeon's knife Mrs. Shipely had a large
amount of fat removed from her chin
and neck, reducing its size from that of
a conspicuous double member to one xif
very ordinary size.
It was not vanity that caused Mrs.
Shipely to undergo the operation. Had
a reduction for; -appearance sake been
the desired object, Mrs. Shipley -would
probably have submitted to the easier,
if less effective, way of being treated
by a massage and facial beauty artist.
Mrs. Shipley, however, had no such mo
tive in view, and it was merely to cor
rect a physical defect, causing much suf
fering, that she decided to have the fat
The excessive fat beneath the chin had
caused a dangerous pressure upon the
right and left carotid arteries, and the
flow of blood to the brain from the aorta
was impeded. This caused imperfect res
piration, and Mrs. Shipley suffered from
Four slits were made in the chfh so
that the fat could be removed. In spite
of this, however, it is said that there
is every hope that no scar will be left.
The operation has caused much comment
in medical circles ,and is considered a
remarkably successful piece of surgery.
BOERS LOOK TO AMERICA
THANK CONGRESSMAN FOR INVITA-
TION TO KRIGER.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—Representa
tive Cochran, of Missouri, two weeks ago
introduced' a resolution inviting Paul
Kruger to visit the United States as the
guest of this country. Yesterday Mr.
Cochran received a. letter from three
members of the Boer delegation quartered
at Brussels, which declares that Great
Britain invented pretext after pretext to
bring on the conflict and that her whole
purpose was to secure the extensive gold
mines' of the Transvaal in pursuance of
a settled national policy to control ail
gold mines wherever possible either by
purchase or seizure in order that Great
Britain may command the world's indus
tries. The letter appeals to "heroic and
generous America" to intervene in be
half of the Boers, and says:
"Since England will not permit friendly
intervention, invite her to a congress of
the nations and see whether such a ccn
gress called in the interest of peace will
b ignored. England would not dare to
refuse to attend such a congress if called
by the United States and paidcipated in
by four or five of the powers.
"The maxims of your republic—'Equal-
Jty, Justice, Liberty'—have been the chief
means of building the great republic, and
its highest purpose should be the preserv

STEWART, OF NEVADA, REPLIES
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—It was agreed
by the senate today that a final vote on
the Philippine tariff bill and the pending
amendments should be taken next Mon
day afternoon. Senator Wellington, of
Maryland, spoke in opposition to the
pending (bill, and Senator Stewart, of
Nevada, in support of the measure. Mr.
Wellington said that he had come to the
parting of the ways with his party
in 189S, when it developed "its imperial

until the bitter end, and until the Fili

Has Praise for Sohley.
Passing incidentally from the Philip
pines to Cuba, Mr. Wellington referred to
the battle off Santiago, where the Amer
ican squadron, he declared, was under
the command of Rear Admiral Sampson,
but was led by "the Meryland hero, Ad
miral Schley." (Applause in one of the
galleries.) "From that moment," he con
tinued, "the end was won. Admiral
Sohley commanded the vessels of the
American squadron in that engagement.
He stood in ths midst of that battle and
won the battle as no battle was ever won
before. But the administration has been
as unjust to him as it has been to the
Cubans and Filipinos. He has not re
ceived that mead of praise and credit
that belongs to him, but an effort has
been made to besmirch him, an^l to de
tract from his character and from, his
truth and bravery."
Mr. Wellington referred incidentally to
his conferences with President McKinley
concerning the ratification of the treaty
of Paris. He discussed the whole situa
tion with the president, he said, and
made plain to him that he (Wellington)
never would consent to vote for any
proposition which contemplated the per
manent occupation of the-Philippine isl
ands toy the United States. He maintain
ed that bur victories in the Spanish war
had induced a reversal of the policy of
more than 100 years. He charged that
Aguinaldo had been captured by methods
unworthy of the American army, and
then had been compelled "under duress"
to issue a proclamation advising his coun
trymen to surrender.
In discussing the Oriental situation, Mr.
Wellington indicated a belief that a
great war is imminent, probably between
Russia and Japan, "due, very likely, to
the breaking up of China."

IS ON TODAY
HOUSE WILIi TAKE UP TAX CODE
IN COMMITTEE OF THE
BOTH SIDES SEEM SATISFIED
Friends and Opponents of Proposed
Sleasnre Say Situation Is
MISSOURIANS VISIT HOUSE
The battle royal is on today. The tax
code will be taken up by the house in
committee of the whole this morning. It
was taken from the committee on taxes
and tax laws yesterday morning by a
practically unanimous vote, and it will
become a special order immediately after
the reception of petitions and other com
munications in the regular routine of
the house this morning.
On the face of it, the situation would
•seem to be entirely within the control
of the "friends" of the bill. Under the
rules adopted at the opening day of the
special session, the special order will be
resumed each day until the tax bill is
disposed of. The daily resumption of the
special order will shut out committee
reports and the introduction of bills, un
k'ts the house takes it upon itself to
suspend or rescind the rules.
On the other hand, the situation is all
that the so-called opposition to the code
has asked for or dared to hope for. As
a matter of fact, it is all that the op
position desires. The constitutional con
vention bill will be recommended out.
and the constitutional amendments
agreed upon by. the committee on ju
diciary will be ready to send into the
house tomoiTow or Friday. The "friends"'
could, of course, if they had a clean ma
jority of the house, prevent either bill
coming in until after the tax code is out
of the way; but the chances are that
they will not attempt to keep either out.
The preliminary skirmish over the code
yesterday appears to be a victory for
the "friends," but the retreat of the op
position was so obviously premeditated
and so complete that it displayed beyond
cavil that the same opposition has still
a card or two up its sleeve to be played
later. The "friends" expected that when
Mr. Wallace presented on behalf of the
tax committee the demand for the con
stitutional amendment bills that fight
would be precipitated, which would re
sult in taking the code from the tax com
mittee, an" at the same time show up
the strength of the opposition.
Opposition Changes Front.
The opposition presented a complete
change of front, to the undisguised sur
prise of the "friends." It failed utterly
to go on record, and allowed the "friends'
to take the code from the tax committee
with just one lone dissenting vote out
of a total of 108. The coup accomplish
ed by the opposition gave Mr. Jacob
son an apparent victory, but left the
"friends" and the public as much in the
aark concerning the opposition and its
strength or organization as before. The
situation down to date, briefly summed
up, leaves the tax bill just where it start
ed two weeks a^o—in the bands of the
committee of the whole.
The fight yesterday morning was not
even pretty. The opposition ma<ie only
a semblance of a fight, and that so thin
that no one was deceived. Mr. Wallace,
chairman of the committee on taxes an-a
tax laws, started the ball by demanding
as instructed by the majority of his com
mittee, that the constitutional amend
ment bills referred to the justiciary be re
called from that reference and given Into
the custody of the tax committee. James
A. Larson, of Redwood, another member
of the committee, was ready with the
substitute decided upon by the "friends."
He demanded that the tax committee be
discharged from further consideration ot
the code and that it be at once returned
to the house. The opposition had orig
inally decided to meet the demand for the
code with a substitute which would re
sult in directing both the tax committee
and the judiciary committee to report
Thursday or Friday and bring both tjie
code and the constitutional amendments
into the house at the same time. At a
hurried conference before the session the
plan was changed, and Mr. Dunn, of the
judiciary committee, sent up ths substi
tute as a blind, just in time to be ruled
out of order by the speaker.
Friends Are Jubilant.
The "friends" were jubilant. They had
met the enemy, won the first skirmish,
and the foe was about to be delivefed

AKRON, Ohio, Feb. 18.—Thomas W.
McCue, of this city, has invented a ma
chine which Thomas Edison declared to

struggle in the smoky, gas-laden levels,
the men reached the bottom of the pit

FROM THIS GLO3E BUREAU, •
Washington, D. C.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—Senator Wil
liam A. Clark, of Montana, is almost too
rich to be happy. He is so rich, and his
wealth . lhas been so widely advertised,
that he is the prey of that horde which
dogs the tracks of money. Somo are
criminals and others are cranks. There
are mendicants in all 'guises, adventurers,
blackmailers of all -sorts, people with
schemes to exploit, inventions to perfect,
articles to sell and unhoused lunat.c3 with
a grudge against ; the rich. One conse
quence ■; of ■ this ,is a , cordon of private
guards about his house and a rule that,
no one can be : admitted after sundown.
Even members of congress and represent
atives of the press are excluded under
■this rule. -;- "■ --..■■ '■ -'..'-"^s
In his political work he is hampered *
by i the: same conditions. He cannot see -
callers : with the "freedom of other mem
bers iof congress. Access must be baid

pear like a happy man. He has a haunted
look in his eyes and he is never seen to
smile or laugh.. He is only a poor rich
