The absenlees were: Al drlch, Burrows, Depew, DuBols, Gor man, Money, Gamble, Paterson, Kit. iiiuc, fitryuuiu, l mil, inwiui, cuw- erland and Warren. The calling of the roll waa marked by the utmost Interest although It had been apparent from the person al statements of a number of sena tors earlier In the day, and from previous utterances, that the meas ure that had been continuously de bated before the Senate elr.ee March , 12th, and which had been marked by many bitter and sensational Incidents would be ratified by an almost unani mous vote. Aldrlch Was Absent. The first name called was that of Mr. Aldrlch. Mr. Cr.llom in announc ing his absence, explained that If he wero present ho would vote fop the bill. There were nods of approval when Mr. Foraker answered "No" for the Ohlolan up to a few moments before the roll call, had reaffirmed his belief that the action congress was taking was unconstitutional, and that he did not see why he should not be permit ted fo be consistent in his course throughout. La Follette Also Absent. When Mr. LaFollette's name waa called, there was no response. Every eyo was turned "to "the Cherokee strip" on the democratic side of the ( chamber, where the Wisctcst A sena tor had his seat. He was not In it, and the rumor that he Intended to abandon the measure, which the re publican majority had refused to per mit him to aid in constructing, was accepted as a reality. Mr. Tillman, In charge of the bill, sat In his seat and failed to respond when his name was called. But both senators voted beforo the calling of the roll had beenconipleted. Frye Causes a Laugh. "Thank God for that," exclaimed President Pro Tem Frye, who was presiding in the absence of the vice president. His voice carried well in to the arena, where Senators heard and laughed. Important action was taken by the Senate before it reached a vote. Aft er a long and stirring debate one of the so-called Allison amendments, which in the minds of the president and many of the narrow court review' men, was essential to prevent th courts from reviwlng every act of thb commission in the rate fixed by it, was stricken out. This consisted of the words "In its judgment," in the pro vision authorizing the commission to fix a just and reasonable rate. Pope Has the Gout. Publishers' Tress Rome, May 19.

HAS FEAR OF TURK The Presbyterians Arrived Here Last Night with Ten Good Athletes. HOPE TO BEAT EARLHAM ALL IS IN READINESS FOR BIG TRACK MEET ON REID FIELD TODAY TO START PROMPTLY AT TWO O'CLOCK. The name of "Turk" is a bugaboo. Even the mighty warriors from sturdy little Wabash college tremble when they hear the name, of the great all around athlete who will compete in th I. C. A. L. track and field games this afternoon at Reid Field. The Wabash squad arrived in the city from Crawfordsville last evening at 9:30 o'clock, ten strong. They put up at the Westcott Hotel and Manager Sullivan fired his 'hopefuls" to the hay a few minntes after they had "sprawled their "John Hancocks" over the hotel register. The Rose Poly team failed to put in an appearance last evening, and It will probably ar rive the first thing this morning. "I hope they will all be tired from their long ejpurney, especially Turk," said Manager' Sullivan .and track coach Walter Wilson, who was In the hotel lobby doing the glad hand act with the visitors, muttered a fervent "amen." Indiana Normal will arrive this morn ing. Wabash Fears Rose Poly. When Manager Sullivan was asked what chances Wabash had for win ning the meet he tried to look like a hard luck story. He studied a minute and then gave out the following bear tale. "Well it looks mighty blue for us. That Turk is a peach and the rest of the Rose Poly bunch can go some. I don't look for first place hon ors but second place looks awfully good to me. We will beat Earlham out. All the points the Quakers will get will be taken from Rose Poly. Miller, a high jumper and a pole vaulter, balked on us today and we left him behind at Crawfordsville. He was good for second place in both of these events." The big meet will be called prompt ly at 2 o'clock this afternoon and it is expected that a big crowd will be on hand. Turk will be a great 'draw ing card. The track is fast and the field in fine shape. Manager Cring stated last night that the meet would be held rain or shine. Re-Elected Superintendent. Palladium Special. Ft. Wayne, Ind.. May 18.

' WABASH MIGHTY ATTENDS M. E.C0NFERENCE DWELLS ON POWER OF THE CHURCH AND ADMONISHES HEARERS TO CRUSH GROWING SOCIALISTIC TENDENCIES. Publishers' Press Birmingham, Ala., May 18. Vice President Fairbanks delivered an ad dress tonight to the general confer ence of the Metliodis Episcopal church South, to which he had been commis sioned to bear the fraternal- greetings of the Methodist Episcopal church (North.) lie stated that the lines of delimi tation between the two denominations were ninidly fading away, and ex pressed the hope that in the compara tively near future they would disap pear altogether, and that there should become in fact one church of ?.leth odism in the United States, "thus creating one of the greatest instru ments for good in the entire Christian world." The Vice-President stated that one of the problems with which the church should be concerned is the recently developed socialistic tenden cy in certain quarters. He stated that the movement was as yet in its incipient stages, but it would be well to study its influences. Socialism is at war wth our most cherished in stincts and is a peril to our social and industrial development. Chance for Individual Genius. "It would paralyze individual initia tive which has been the most potent factor in our upbuilding," he declared. "Here, amidst the unsurpassed advan tages which a kind providence has placed at our hands, the Individual counts for more than anywhere else beneath the sun. Here, no matter how humble his station, he Is able to develop his genius for accomplishing things, for subduing . the wilderness, for building great cities, for spanning the continent wth the evidence of his power, for mproving his environment, and making better the home and stronger the fetate. Socialism seeks to level down and not to level up. It is alike at war with the best interests of both capital and labor. It seems to restrict in each the exercise of its natural functions. It puts limitations upon each which are contrary to American genius and spirit. In the United States, the laborer of today; be comes the capitalist of tomorrow. Such has been our experience from the beginning until now ,and it will be the future history of tomorrow. Influence of the Church' "Neither constitution nor statutes, though they were framed fey rpen with the wisdom of Solomon, can establish and maintain equality and absolute justice among men. We must look to the persuasive power and influence of the Christian church to bring them to a complete realization of their true relationship to each other; to their primary duty to deal fairly with one another, to carry into the various rela tions of . life the principles of . that brief and splendid code, the golden rule. No political law can maintain enduring relations of amity between capital and labor. No human law can bring them into such harmony as perpetually to avoid friction and col lision. The Christian church can do more than all the measures framed by th? hand of man to maintain industri al i oace." JUDGE W. P. ANDREWS DIES Preacher, Lawyer, Physician and Dis tinguished Jurist Passes i Away. N Palladium Special. Laporte, Ind ., May 18. Judge William P.

BUS HESS MEN PICTURED OBSERVATIONS. WIFE COMES TO DEFENSE NOT A SWINDLE SHE SAYS It is Claimed That Promoter Kellog Is Not Trying to Swindle People Who Bought Land in Canada Mis understanding it All. - It was learned yesterday that L. S. Kellog, ' the Canadian land promoter who it was alleged swindled numer ous people including Dwlght North of Milton, resides at Lafayette, Ind. His wife has entered a strenuous de nial that , he has been guilty of any fraudulent work and states that he is now at Brookston. She says that the whole matter is a mistake, and that it will be recti fied by her husband on his return. Mr. Kellogg left St. Paul, Minn., Wed nesday last, for Winnipeg, headqquar ters of the land company which he represents, and that he will return home in a few days. She explains that the trip for the Bloomington people, which failed last Friday, as originally promised, had been planned for June 5. on which date the railway company had agreed to supply coaches. The Bloomr ington people, she says, changed the date to an earlier day, and this caus ed a slip in the arrangement, so that the railway company failed to pro vide the coaches. She reports that her husband has already sent word to Bloomington, and that they should now understand why this trip has been delayed. Mrs. Kellogg further says that her husband has sufficient money in bank at Brookston to repay the Blooming ton people, if they are disappointed. Claimed He Was Drunk.

INTEREST FAST PASSING But a Fair Sized Crowd Saw Pictures of Burning of San Francisco at The Phillips A fair sized crowd witnessed the first appearance of the moving pic tures of the San Francisco earth quake in this city at the New Phil lips last night. The majority of the films were bad owing to- the fact that i they were taken in the smoke of the burning city. A few however were good and gave a realistic picture of the strenuous scenes in the Golden Gate city on April 19, the day follow ing the big earthquake. Ruins of the big buildings were shown, people ac tively at work saving their household goods, and the ferry boats carrying the fleeing thousands across San Francisco Bay to Oakland. These pic tures were taken on April 19 . and were given their first public exhibi tion a week ago last Thursday in Chi cago. . MARKS THE END OF GREAT DEBATE Fight Over Rate Bill Was Most Memorable Battle Ever Held in Senate PRESIDENT THE CENTER IT WAS AROUND ROOSEVELT THAT ALL ACTION WAS CAR RIED OUT, MUCH OF WHICH WAS SENSATIONAL. Publishers PressJ ' Washington, May 18. Today's ac tion brought to a close one of the most memorable and sensational de bates ever heard in the Senate. From before the rate bill reached the Sen ate from the House, where it had passed by a vote of 346 to 7, the great contest in which the President took the lead was on. Not a week since then but has not been marked by a climax, the first being when the com cittee on Interstate Commerce, with its Republican majority, reported the billl to the Senate without amend ment or recommendation and placed it in charge of Senator Tillman, the Presidents bitter personal enemy, for the long contest that it was agreed must be fought out in the open Sen ate. First Fight in the Senate. The first fight in the Senate came upon the rights of Congress to dele gate the rate fixing power to an ad ministrative body, then shifted to the judicial review that should be per mitted. Time and again compromises were arranged that were broken al most as soon as made. The Presi dent was the storm center. He was from time to time bitterly assailed and charged with changing front. It remained for the closing days of the debate, however, for him to be charg ed with betrayal of Democratic sena tors who were negotiating with him and denounced for an alleged surren der to the so-called Aldrlch railroad forces. Here Came the Sensation. It was in this discussion that the President denounced as an "unquali fied falsehood" the charge of Ex Senator Chandler, of the Spanish treaty claims commission, that he had criticised Senator Snooner. Knox and Foraker in a hostile sririt and it was during these sensational Inter changes upon the Senate floor that Mr. Bailey denounced as liars two newspaper correspondents and charg ed that the slander ther sent oi't was obtained from the White House. Complaint Is Made. Complaint has been made" at po lice headquarters against the men who make it a habit of loitering in front of the saloons at the comer of North D and Third streets. It is claimed that they molest young girls who pass the saloons on their war to school and make themselves general ly obnoxious by Improper language and obstructing the sidewalks. It Is probable that the police will at once put a stop to this nuisance. MUCH PRACTICAL ADVICE SPEAKER URGES THAT STATE HOSPITAL BE BUILT AND DR. DAVIS SUGGESTS, THAT LO CAL SOCIETY BE FORMED In a paper read before the Tubercu losis Conference af the-South Eighth, Street Friends Church " hist evening. Dr. S. Edgar Bond, a well known phy sician, who has made, .an .. .especial study of'lungJ diseases,, -clearly de fined the disease. "The Great White Plague," as he culls it, and showed plainly with the aid of the stereoptl con how consumption can be dealt with and cured. There was large at tendance, nearly every seat being oc cupied. The disease was defined as one caused by germs. It not only affects the lungs but different parts of tho body, although the lungs - are easily reached hence there is move pulmon ary consumption than any other kind. Sunshine Kills Germs. Any kind of germ,ancf especially those of tuberculosis, cannot live In the open air, and sunshine, Dr. Bond stated, and in the prevention of the disease, out of door living and exer cise are important factors. He said, "It is not the man who works out of doors that contracts consumption. The victims of the disease are young people just from the ball, who come overheated into the open air. Tho business man who puts in too many hours at his desk, In a crowded office contracts a bad cough, endlns In consumption. The Factory employee in a poorly ventilated shop room, the seamstress in her narrow quarters or the boy or girl, naturally weak, who spends too much time studying In crowded school rooms. These are tho victims of consumption and against the conditions which bring about tho disease toy those people, is the fight to be waged. . "Consumption is not Inherited. It has been proven beyond doubt that consumption cannot be Inherited, al though the weakness for th's partic ular disease may be inherited. This Is an Important point, as It has been supposed that when the disease en ters a family, the children are liable to contract it. Consulting Physicians. "Another, way to prevent consump tion is to consult a physician fre quently enough so that he caji keep a knowledge of the patient's condi tion, whteher sick or well. Patent medicines and old fashioned home cures, consisting of a warm , close room for a person suffering from cold are taboed. The point that cures lies in the open air was strongly brought out. "Statistics show that nine out of every ten persons who contract the disease recover, and the other one dies. The system is frequently able to ; throw off the germ or repel the rav ages of it In its early stages. Post mortem examinations show this to be a fact. Exercise Strongly Urged. "Too much exercise, under proper direction, is impossible. Food is also an Important factor In preventing and curing the disease. Doped foods, such as are turned out of some of the factories aid the disease. The agi tation for pure food, now in- the Con gress, will greatly help the fight against consumption, if the bill goes through. "Too much stress cannot be laid on the necessity of proper ventilation In the living and sleeping rooms of a house, or any public or private build ing. I will guarantee that not one In twenty persons in this audience to night allows one-twentieth enough fret-h air into the sleeping rooms at night. Churches, public halls, thea tre and factories should all guard against foul air." Plead For State Hospital. In conclusion, Dr. Bond urged the people to make some efforts to In duce the state to finish a hospital for the poor consumptives who are not able to combat the disease. He said, "Here Is a field for philanthropists, j lodares and various organizations to work good to humanity." Following the paper by Dr. Bond, Dr. George H. Grant opened a discus sion. He said that if a coush hangs on for longer than six weeks, it Is practically certain that the tubercu losis germ has a hold upon the sys tem. A doctor should be consulted and the speediest means resorted to for the aid of the sufferer. He said that the people are generally becom ing educated to the prevention of con sumption and in ten years ,he expects (Continued on Page Two.) Fanny Herring Dead. Publishers' Press!
