tor's Source of News.
Springfield, Ills., April 25. Until a
committee of five appointed by Speak
er' Miller to Investigate the charges of
bribery in the interest of the Mueller
traction bill made by Mai has report
ed, and until George W. Ilimnan, of
Chicago, has been summoned before
the bar of the house to prcvo similar
charges published: in The Intir-Occau,
of Chicago, nj action will be taken by
the house upon any of the traction bills
now pending. This action was deter
mined upon by the anti-Miller faction
and they carried It through by the pas
sago of the Ilimnan resolution. The
appointm-ent of the special committee
of five came from the Miller faction,
and was entirely agreeable to the other
side, which is firm in its declaration
that no proof of Lribery will be forth
coming. Bribery Charge In veatlffatiqn.
The opening session of the legisla
ture yesterday was a calm nftrr the
storm of Thursday, although there
was a decided undercurrent of feeling
against Speaker Miller, which threat
ened to break out again if anything
similar to the tactics of Thursday was
attempted. The chief interest in the
traction question centered around the
appolntmeut of the committer to inves
tigate the charges of attempted bribery
in behalf of the Mueller bill made
by Speaker Miller. The members op
posed to Speaker Miller llatly declared
that they did not "lieve there was
anything in the charge made by tbo
speaker and announced their intention
of pushing home the matter in such a
way that Miller would be compelled
to prove his assertion of attempted
brilery or admit that he -could not
make it good.
Lindly Dlaensaee Traction Legislation.
In accordance with an agreement be
tween the two factions no effort was
made to approve the journal of Thurs
day, and the proceedings of that day
were left open. At 10:20 Lindly asked,
the unanimous consent of the house
for the consideration of the Lindly
bill, and requested further that the
consent should cover all the amend
ments. Theonsent was obtained, and
Lindly entered upon an exhaustive dis
cussion of traction legislation past and
present. - J.

At 11:10 Sehlagenhauf made an at

foie the house by calling a point of
order on the length of Lindly's speech.
He was Induced to withdraw for the
time, but later again rose to a point
of order, saying that charges had been
made that bribery had been used to
advance the interest of the Mueller
bill and he thought the honor of the
bouse of representatives required that
such charges be investigated before
any action was taken on the t action
bills. Ho then submitted the follow
"Whereas, there has been published

As scori'iis the speaker had declared
the adoption of the resolution. Morris
offered a resolution authorizing the
committee appointed by the speaker to
Investigate the charges he madeTburs

tion to. the. Mueller bill, to compel at

mittee appointed by the speaker con
it's of Wheeler, Popf, Morris, Johnson
and. Farley. The selection was not
satlsfactorly- to the anti-Sillier
faction because for one thing, Rina
ker's name was not on the list, and
he was the mover of the resolution.
On motion -f Klnaker the municipal
ownership bill and all amendments
and matters pertaining thereto were
then lMJStponed until next Tuesday
morning, immediately after the report
of the investigating committee.
barl ow moved, to add to the commit
tee of five, appointed to investigate
the statement of Speaker Miller with
regard to being approached in an Im
proper way. in connection with the
Mueller bill, the following: Itinaker,
Trautmann, McKinley of Cook, Mc
Manainan, Bundy and ShurtlefS. The
speaker directed the clerk to call the
roll on the motion. Before the roll
call was commenced Wheeler made a
brief statement In which he snid that
the report had been circulated since
the committee was appointed that it
would be a whitewash committee;
against this report he protested.
Wilson, the Democratic floor leader,
opposed any change la the committee.
Allen replied that It was the uni
versal practice to appoint the mover of
a resolution providing for a committee
as a member of the committee. This
had not boe'i done. "Tell me," said
he, "why Tom Itinaker was not placed
on that committee why the precedent
that, had 'been established for a cen
turj' has been violated." Wheeler said
the committee was perfectly willing to
have Ilinaker as a member, but any
one knew a large committee was un
wleldly. Ho called Kinaker the bal
ance wheel of the "unti-orgauization
crowd," which Hinakcr resented, de
claring, no anti-organization work had
been done in. the recent proceedings.
The speaker said that the fact had
been overlooked that Kinaker was the
mover of the npiointment of the com
mittee. The motion to add the six

that they could not be out-classed by
the lower branch in the matter of de

"Gentlemen, you will have n roll

UCH straightforward evidence can
not be overlooked. What the com
mon people say carries weight, but when
a man of national prominence says "Pe
runa should be used in every household,"
it is a significant fact to the Increasing
prominence and undoubted efficacy of
Pernna is of national fame as a catarrh
remedy. It is the onlv internal svs
temio catarrh remedy known to the med
ical profession. It makes diseased mu
cous membranes healthy, whether it is
the mucous membrane lining the nose,
throat, lungs, stomach, kidneys or pel
vic organs. It cures various diseases of
all these organs, because two-thirds of
the ills of mankind are due to catarrh.
With healthy mucous membranes cli
matic diseases lose their terror, the sys
tem is enabled to throw off contagion,
and health follows inevitably.
Mr. A. T. Wood, Mt. Sterling, Ky
For many years I have been a suf
ferer from catarrh, and have spent
time and money with physicians and
'used many kinds of remedies which
were 'guaranteed sore cures , but In
every case it was money thrown away.
" reaped no benefit whatever front
them, in my seemingly vain search
for relief I purchased a bottle of Pe
runa, having no confidence In it what'
ever at the time. This was about one
year ago, and I began to Improve and
was able to attend to my business
without being constantly hampered by
every kind of pain known to a human
being. My hearing, which was almost
entirely gone in one ear, got very much
better. The medicine not only see rns
to cure, but to prevent disease.
"This winter when every one was
suffering from la grippe, I stood like a
stone wall, absolutely proof against it.
I am not a believer in 'patent medi
cines,' having found the majority of
them fakes, but I do not hesitate to
recommend Peruna as the best medi
cine 4or catarrh tbe world has ever
seen. I keep a bottle of it at home
constantly and shall continue to do so,
because I believe it to be tbe best med
icine on earth. I never leave home
that 1 don't put a bottle of It in my
grip." A. T. WOOD.
Mr. Evan D. Bowen, TodgeCity, Kan.,
Conductor on the A. T. & S- F. R. R.,
writes : "I have had catarrh of the stom
ach lor seven years, and I began to think
that I never was going to be enred. At
the time I began taking Peruna,I was un
able to make more than one or two trip3
on the road at a time, not being able to
keep anything on my stomach. I then
weighed 108 pounds. I have been taking
Peruna since that time and have never
lost a trip, and now weigh 200 pounds."
