Springfield, 111., June 14. Bedlam

a riot and a free-for-all fight were nar

Illinois last night when Representa

knocking him to the floor.
The assault was the culmination of
the general bad "temper engendered
this session, particularly by the "wet

belligerent and broke all bounds; it
was a case of rum, riot and rebellion

"You can't tell me to shut up," Mr.
Sextor. heard a voice behind him ex
claim, and the next instant Wilson
was sprawling, Gorman having caught
him off his guard and having landed
one on the jaw.
In an instant the house was in an
uproar. MembeTS jumped over the
brass railing. Some pulled Gorman
away others rcised Wilson . to his
feet. The latter was dazed, but recov

back to hi3 seat by friends. '
"Throw him out," "Expel that mem

to the aisles.
The speaker almost smashed his
desk with the gavel, and at length
made himself heard above the din.
"Let us decide at some other time,
when all of us are a little cooler, what
is to be done," he c'ed.
In the tumult a score of voices be

aged to get near the speaker's desk.
"Keep this house in session or there
will be a riot they're ready to fight
if you adjourn," he shouted.
GORMAN RENEWS ATTACK.
The house was beginning to calm
down and Mr. Holaday was proceeding
wl'h his speech, when Gorman left his
seat and rushed again for the rear oi
the hall. Representative James If.
Morris, a friend, grabbed Gorman's
arm, but was dragged along down the
aisle. Half a dozen democrats at
length forced Gorman into his seat

MAIL TRADEJS ATTACKED
Hinebaugh Offers Document Favoring
Washington. D. C, June 14. In
i supporting bis bill imposing a tax on
interstate mail order houses Repre
j sentative Hinebaugh cf Illinois pre
sented yesterday in the house a com
munication given to the Illinois vice
commission by J. R. Morehead. His
pt'Tpose was to show that mail order
houses exert a baneful influence. Mr.
Mcorehcad's 'document wag an argu
ment in favor of the country merchant,
and. according to Mr. Hinebaugh, set
forth the danger confronting him
from the mail order business.
Mr. Hinebaugh said cvs Chicago

fl",000,000 last year. He told how
mail order houses were growing and
J "It should be apparent to every
' thinking person that the country mer
chant must go out cf business as the
great mail order houses gradually
j clcse down cn local markets."
' Mr. Hinebaugh eaid 788 towns in II
, licols. 564 in Iowa, (40 in Missouri.

! in New York. 1,126 in Ohio and 1.520 '
! in Pennsylvania had lost population
in the last ten yeara as an "effect ot
! the mall order business."
j "The retail merchant," he continu
j ed, "Is the backbone of the country
tewn. The mail order houee is his
worst enemy. The farmers need tha
town and the town must have the far
mers. "The great mail order houses have
no difficulty in underselling the retail
dealer, no matter how much hs'may
reduce his margin of profit. Buyinx
as they do from prison contractors the
prcducts of convict labor, they get
many of their manufactured articles
at prices that would be utterly impos
sible to obtain if made by free labor."
Mr. Hinebaugh introduced a bill to
provide for uniform preferential pri
maries for presidential nominations.
The measure also regulates the elec
tion of delegates to national conven
tions. It 1b one of the bills on tBe

It is expected that at least 12 teams

CURE A FAILURE
Report of J. O. Cobb, in the
United States Health Ser
vice, Made Public.
NO WARRANT FOR CLAIMS
Asserts Physician Reported Cases of
Temporary Improvement in
Washington, D. C, June 14. The
failure of the so-called Duket con
sumption cure is predicted, and the
claims for- it are declared wholly un
justifiable. In the report made by J. O.
Cobb, surgeon in the United States
public health service, stationed at
Chicago, to the surgeon general ot
that service, under date of May 16,
1913. which, with other correspondence
on the subject, was made public yes'
terday under instructions from Secre
tary of the Treasury McAdoo.
The Duket cure has been chrnpion
ed by William Lorimer. Surgeon Cobb
in his report says: "A specific cure
must be brought about in certain defin
ite ways, and the term is ordinarily
accepted to mean the rapid cure of
disease by means of unusual anff extra
ordinary medicaments introduced into
the body in contradistinction to those
cases, like typhoid fever, that will
nearly always recover by their own
self-limitations. Anti-diphtheritic eer
um is an example of a specific cure.
CITES CASES OK DEATH.
"Therefore to comply with the gen
eral acceptation of the term it is only
fair to assume that the Duket treat
ment will effect a cure in a compara
tively short time and that the cure
will be easily demonstrable to every
one, the layman as well as the doctor,
and to the patient himself. We cannot
accept the well known temporary im
provem-juts i-ere the cough and opa
turn disappear for weeks and months
at a time and call them cures. Dr.
Duket has always reported such cases
under the most glowing colors, and the
death certificates of several of them
stand as the accusing finger for over
hasty action, to 6ay the very least
"The advanced cases in Grace hos
pitsl I do. not believe are cured. That
some of them may eventually recov.
er in likely. I car more than parallel
Dr. Duket's so-called cure with rases
of my oti, who never had any special
treatment save fresh air, rest and food.
The exhibition of a few favorable
cases means nothing. I can show like
cases from sanitorium treatments
within the environs of Chicago.
CAI.I.8 CLAIMS I'WVAHR ANTED.
"I believe tho claims for the alleged
Duket consumption cure to be wholly
unjustifiable, and because of the un
warranted advertising and publicity
given to the alleged cure and because
of the secrecy of the treatment and
because of the short time the cases
have been under the observation of Dr.
Herzog and his assistants, I respect-

treatment and its results."
It was upon the receipt of this report
that the department announced last
month that the government would not
continue the investigation.
Dr. Duket's present Chicago connec
tions came about in a way described
by Dr. Cobb as romantic, starting with
a chance conversation with a genUe
man who brought him into touch with
Father James G. Green. The latter.

of the reported cures as'almost mirac
