t FprinRfield. Ills.. March 2. "May
the members of this house all be char
acterized by integrity and upright
ness," prayed Rev. D. G. Rradford,
actlnpr chaplain. In his opening prayer
in the house yesterday morning. "May
there not be within these walls a single-
itching palm, and no room for one
who would tickle an itching palm."
Then, after some miscellaneous busi
ness, Tippit asked unanimous consent
to have the Pundy revenue bill, which
raises the percentage of assessment
from one-fifth to one-third, made a
special order for this morning. Shana
han objected, and raised the point of
order that the Krickson legislative sal
ary bill was a special order for imme
diate consideration, and that all other
matters were out of order until It had
been disposed of. The point was sus
tained and the Erlckson bill was then

S. E. Ericksou, author of the bill,
fqxke briefly in support of the proposi
tion to Increase the salary of the mem
bers of the legislature to $2,000 per an
num. He said it had received the in
dorsement of the Chicago press and he
hoped that it would pass. Owen spoke
against the bill, and declared that Its
passage would react on the Republic
an party. It would cost the state $20-L-000
per annum, he said, and the mon
ey could be better Invested in some
state institution for the care of the
state wards. 'I hope." he declared
with emphasis, "that every honest
man in this assembly will vote, against
this bill." The declaration was re
ceived with a chorus of groans jind
Owen closed his speech amid great
31ta Umocrrlo Opposition.
Hughes, the veteran Democratic
member from Pulton county, made a
vigorous speech In opiosition to the
bill, and roundly" scored the legislature.
He said he was a believer in the dec
laration that the laborer was worthy
of his hire, and he challenged the legis
lature to show from its record that it
was worth what the people were pay
ing for it. "We have leeu here almost
three months," he said, "and all we
have done is to elect a United States
senator. That was a perfunctory
matter for it was done months in
advance of the time we met."
HUGHES TELLS OF A THREAT
Bay He Made Ills Speech In Face Thereof
More Warm Critlclnm.
Hughes then went on to roast the
legislature for its sins of omission and
commission, from his point of view.
Said he: "We have just been meeting
from two to three days a "week and
consuming from tblrt; fifty minutes
of time wita each session. In the
meantime the expense of $1,800 a day
for useless employen has been going

to seventy-three." He spoke the
provable expenses which would! accrue
ttf the state ns the result of the ses
sion, from its appropriations, new com
missions, and the like.
He tiicn took up the matter of legis
lation, and demanded to know what
hart been done for the farmers. "Only
four bills," he said, "have been al
lowed) to get into the agrieulture com
mittee, and one of them was to permit
counties to pay a bounty for the kill
ing of woodchucks." He criticised
the committee on live stock and dairy
ing, and said that bills to relieve the
farmers of extortion from the stock
yards hadi been sent to that commit
tee for the purpose of burying them.
He spoke In u similar strain of the
action of the elections committee n
killing the women's suffrage bill.
Paulson (Dom.) spoke in favor of
the bill, and detined it as a measure
which was calculated to improve the
character of the men sent to the rcii
eral assembly. When he had closed
1 1 tig hen arose to a question of per
sonal privilege. "Mr. SeaUer."' he
said, with a considerable show of feel
ing, "I made the speech which I made
this morning In the face of a threat.
I was told that if I made a speech In
opposition to this measure every , bill
I hnd and every measure ' in which,'
I was concerned would be killed,. I
made the speech because I felt that
it was my duty to protest against the
passage of this bill, and I want to say
that the man who made that threat is
not worth $1,000 a session as a mem
ber of this legislature, nor is he worth
50 cents to the people of the state."
There were loud calls for the pre
vious questio'i, and the roll was called
on the passage of the bill. As it be
came evident that the bill could not
be passed, S. E. Erickson, before the
result was announced, moved that the
bill be iKstponed until next Wednes
day. The motion prevailed. The vote
on the bill stood yeas, HO; nays, 67.

by the senate in pushing the dteath

it to $10,000.
CONVICT LABOR AT THE FBONT
Bill Amended to a to Require Full En
forcement by May 1. 10O4. . -
Springfield, Ills.. March 2tf-After
the house had d-sposed of --for the
time the legislative salary bill yester
day the convict labor bill was 'called
up on third reading,'" and two propo
sitions were made to amend, both In
the line of a gradual change in the
system at the state prisons. Chiper
fieldi sioke in favor of the bill, but
was willing lor a gradual change so
long as the legislature acted, for he
was opposed to trusting the officers of
the institutions. "We have' trusted
thefte men for sixteen jears." he said,
"in 1880 the people of this state adopt
ed a constitutional amendment pro
hibiting contract convict labor, and
within tlie last year the trustees of one
institution contracted for $41 0,0 0 of
labor in Violation of the constitution."
Johnson spoke against the bill, saj
ing he understood "that the demand
for this bill comes from the furniture
trust in Chicago the Chicago Fur
niture company. I will sk the rentle
man from Fulton Chipertield,
whether he represents that company."
Chipertield said he did not, and thank
ing Johnson for the opixirtunity took
occasion to make a sweeping denial
of ail such reports. He said he had
gone to New York to Investigate the
convict labor Jaw of that state, but
paid his own expenses. "I will say
that if I have at any time represented
any one in this matter, it has been the
Illinois Federation of Labor, whose
attorney I have been."
"Yes," retorted Johnson, "you have
always taken occasion to call attention
to that fact in the committees and on
the floor of this house."
Chipertield--And will again.
Johnson In view of the next elec
tion for attorney general of Illinois.
Johnson then spoke against the bill.
He said the attempt to put convicts
at productive labor and yet keep them
out of competition with free lalior was
a failure both in New York and Indi
ana. Darrow called attention to the fact
that the constitution prohibits convict
contract labor and that legislation on
the subject must be had.
After more discussion a vote was
had on one of the two propositions to
make the change gradual, and it was
adopted 102 to 23. The amendment
was proposed by Llndly and provides
in part that "Said board of prison
industries shfill see that this act is in
full force and effect at the latest by
May 1, 1904."
An amendment was adopted permit
ting the managers of the Pontiac re
formatory to use all or part of the
working hours In the giving of useful
instruction. Hunt offered an amend
ment prohibiting the convicts from do
ing any printing for any politcal di
vision or any institution of the state.
Darrow opposed) the amendment. He
said that many printers had appealed
to him to favor it, but that he could
not do so. All that the legislature
ould do for the workingman, he said,
was to give him a fair show.
Sherman said that on the general
proposition Darrow was right, but that
an extensive business had grown up In
Springfield in connection .with the
state .printing-and that if this work
was to be done in the penal institu
tions this business would- be wiped
The Hunt amendment on a rising
vote was lost yeas, 32; nays, 74. The

NEW PARK IS BEING PREPARED
Citizens' Meeting- Is Successful iu
Creating Necessary Kn
President M. II. Sexton has returned
from Joliet with the news that all
necessary funds had been raised for a
new bail park, and that work would
commence at once on the prepara
tion of the grounds, which are to be
opened in time for the first game in
the league season. The president's
visit has had the desired effect, the
meeting held to;irouse citizen's inter
est was successful, and the money
needed to take the balance of the
$2,500 stock off the hands of. the, di
rectors raised in the subscription,
which followed. ' .' '
By this action all danger of .Joliet
losing its franchise is past and things
are now moving swimmingly. The lo
cation of the new park, which was
settled on some time ago, is as good
a one as could be found. The neces
sary funds are now on hand to prose
cute the work with all speed neces
sary to insure completion hy the date
of the. general league opening, Tlie
visit of the president with the infor
mation that several other cities in
the territory of the league were
ready and anxiottn to take the fran
chise, in case Joliet failed to "make
good," spurred that city t immedi
ate and certain action with the re
sult that the. citizens generally ral
lied to the support of the directors
in the stock issue.

Over in Daenport the fans have
been worried on account of a doubt
that has arisen as to whether Davy
Crockett would be back this season
to cover first. Manager Hayes now
announces that he has Davy all safe
and sound, and in fact, has had his
contract all winter. Nevertheless
several other men have been signed
who will be able to hold down the in
itial cushion if occasion warrants.
Manager Hayes, of the Davenport
team, has released" John J. Kvers. the
catcher, who last season distinguish
ed himself by assaulting the umpire
on various occasions. Kvers was re
tained in the hope that he could be
sold to good advantage, but no one
appeared to be willing to pay the
price for him. Accordingly he was
released, and will begin tlie season
with the Rochester team in the New
York state, league.

Knowltoa shows what care, persistence and a good
hair invigorating tonic will do in the way of pro
ducing hair. This little girl has had lJandenne
applied to her hair and scalp regularly ever since
she was three months of age, with the result that
she now has the longest and most beautiful head
of hair ever possessed by a child of her age.
Frances Marie is the daughter of ir. E. W. Knowl
