COLON, Colombia, Feb. 4. It is reported
here that the Venezuelan revolutionary
steamer LIbertador, formerly the British
steamer Ban Rlgh, has been sunk by a
Venezuelan gunboat while under repairs
at Porto Colombia.
The report first gained circulation yester
day, but no confirmation could bo ob

been lying up at Porto Colombia for the
past few weeks in need of repairs. The
fact that the British warship Psyche left

Bill Introdnced by Senator Elkln for
Fixlnx Railway Rates nud
PAY OF JUDGES INCREASED
BILL FOR INCREASE OF SALARIES
PASSED UV THE SENATE.
All Amendments Voted Down Noyes
Case Discussed New Senator
from New Jersey Seated.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. Senator Elklns,
chairman of the interstate-commerce com
mittee, to-day introduced a bill making a
number of clianges in the interstate-commerce'
law, the most important of which
are giving the Interstate-commerce Com
mission authority, under certain conditions,
to fix railroad rates, legalizing pooling and
abolishing imprisonment as a method of
punishing offenses against the law.
Tha provision with reference to the fix
ing of rates authorizes the Interstate-commerce
Commission to hear complaints of
discrimination made against common car
riers, and directs that any definite order
made by the committee after such hearing
declaring a rate regulation or practice to
be just and reasonable shall become op
erative and be observed by the party or
parties against whom it is made within
thirty days after notice. Appeal to the
United States Circuit Courts and to the
Supreme Court of the United States is au
thorized. The latter court is given author
ity to suspend or revoke a rate order made
by the committee on application by parties
affected, and all such"' orders are limited to
one year's duration. The committee is au
thorized to determine the proportion fcr
each of tho carriers when the rate fur
nished is a joint rate.
The setlon of the bill concerning pooling
provides that "it shall be lawful for any
two or more common carriers to arrange
between and among themselves for the
establishment or maintenance of rates. It
also Bhall be lawful for such carriers to
agree, by contract in writing filed with the
Interstate-commerce Commission, upon the
division of their traffic or earnings, or
both." Authority is given to the Interstate
commerce Commission to hear complaints
against the fairness of such pooling ar
rangements and to make an order annul
ling the contract in the respects found to
be unjust and unlawful. Failure to com
ply with the order will work the annulment
of the contract.
Proceedings by writ of Injunction are au
thorized against any party disobeying the
provisions of the bill, and the offending
party is made subject to a penalty of HO.UuO,
to be paid Into the treasury of the United
States. Where a road passes Into a for
eign country authority is given, in addition
to the imposition of fines, to suspend the
movement of trains within the United
States until the requirement shall be com
plied with. A fine of not less than $1,000
nor more than $2,000 Is provided for the
willful failure of any carrier to publish
tariffs or ratss and charge?, as required
by the interstate-commerce law.
The provision . abolishing Imprisonment
is as follows: "In all convictions occurring
after the passage of this act for offenses
under said act to regulate commerce,
whether committed before or after the
passage of this act, or for offenses under
this section no penalty shall be imposed
on the convicted party other than the fine
prescribed by law, imprisonment wherever
now prescribed as pari of the penalty be
ing hereby abolished."
Authority is given to the commlssitc ti
require the publication of traffic rates, a.ij
where there is reasonable ground for belief
that freights or passengers are being car
ried for Jess than the published rates the
commission Is authorized to begin pro
ceedings in the Circuit Court of the United
States, which court is required to enforce
an observance, of the published tariffs.
Those proceedings are to be directed not
only against the carrier, but also against
the other parties interested.
DE II ATE ON THE "OLEO" HILL.
Little Prospect of a Vote in the House
WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. Debate on the
oleomargarine bill continued to-day in the
House and the prospects are that a vote
will not be reached earlier than Thursday.
The opponents of the bill are making a
strong fight so far as the presentation of
argument is concerned. The speakers to
day were Messrs. Tompkins of New York,
Roberts of Missouri, Knapp of New York,
Bates of Pennsylvania, Davidson of Wis
consin, Driscoll of New York and Hepburn
of Iowa in favor and Messrs. Cowherd of
Missouri, Lanham of Texas, Grosvenor of
Ohio and Kleberg of Texas against the bill.
Mr. Grosvenor varned the friends of the
bill that the use of a wholesome food prod
uct could not be prevented by legislation,
and declared that the advertisement given
to oleomargarine by this agitation would
defeat the very ends aimed at by the
"friends of the cow." Greed, he said, in
conclusion, grew upon what it was fed
upon, and the time to stop the evils which
follow in the train of the proposed legisla
tion was now, by killing the pending bill.
Mr. Hepburn clai med that the passage
of the bill would cheapen the price of oleo
margarine for Viose who desired to use It:
first, by reducing the tax l?i cents, and,
second, by taking it out of the market as a
competitor of butter.
Dill Providing More Pay for Federal
Judges Passed, 39 to SI.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. After brief dis
cussion to-day the Senate passed the bill
20 to 21 providing for a 23 per cent, in
crease in tho salaries of United States
judges. All amendments were voted down,
including one to increase the salaries of
Cabinet officers from $3,000 to $12,500 a year.
By the terms of the measure the following
salaries are to be paid United States
Judges: Chief Justice Supreme Court of
the United States, $13,000; each associate

District of Columbia, $G,730; each associate
During the remainder of the day's ses
sion the urgent deficiency appropriation
bill was under consideration, the Philippine
tariff measure being laid aside temporarily.
Mr. Hansbrough made a spirited defense
of Judge Arthur H. Noyes. of the District
Court of Alaska, and Alexander McKenzie,
upon whom an attack was made in the
Senate yesterday. This precipitated a long
discussion of the Noyes case, legal and
technical, rather than personal. No action
could be taken on the subject, but the dis
cussion will be continued to-morrow under
the latitude allowed when appropriation
bills are pending.
Mr. Tillman desired to have printed in
the Record tho decision of the Circuit Court
of Appeals of San Francisco in the con
tempt cae against Judge Noyes, but Mr.
McCumber objected. He declared that the
decision was unjust in every respect and
said It should not go into the Record even
with his tacit permission. He asserted that
it was the result of an effort to create a
prejudice against an able and conscientious
officer and was based on fale conclusions.
"I object to it for an honest purpose," he
declared, "to protect honest men."
"Then I will read it to the Senate in the
morning." said Mr. Tillman, hotly.
"Verv well," retorted Mr. McCumber;
Mr. John F. Dryden was Inducted into of
fice as the successor of the late Senator
William J. Sewell. of New Jersey. When
Senator Dryden had signed the roil he was
escorted to his seat Just In the rear of that
of Mr. Kean on the extreme right of the
chamber. His desk was adorned with
beautiful floral offerings from the .Nc.v
Jtry delegation In Congress and other
friends. A cordial greeting was extended
to the new senator by his colleagues. A
party, consisting of members of Mr. Dry
den's family and some intimate friends
from New Jersey, occupied the Senate re
served gallery during the ceremony of hi3
Induction into ollice.
The Republican senators constituting the
caucus committee to-day made the new
committee assignments rendered necessary
by the death of Senator Sewell and the
election of his successor, Dryden. Senator
Hanna was assigned to the chairmanship of
the committee on enrolled bills formerlv'
held by Senator Sewell. surrendering the
chairmanship of the committee on relations
with Canada to Senator Dryden. Senator
Dryden was given places on the committees
cn immigration, enrolled bills, library and
University of the United States. Other
changes were made as follows: Senator
Foraker transferred from the committee
on university to the committee on military
affairs: Senator Kean given a place on the
committee on territories, and Senator Mc
Millan a place on the committee on appro
priations. Senator Dillingham leaves the
committee on postollices, and Senator Proc
tor goes on that committee. The committee
on library was enlarged by two members,
the majority to have one and the minority
one of the new memberships.

the abandonment of existing posts which
are now useless from a modern military
point of view, and the planting of new posts
on strateslc points. It also was to locate
the four great camps for the training of the
soldiers of tho regular army and their co
operative drill with the militia. These
things have been done, and the board's re
port Is now before Secrttnry Root, who
will send it to Congress. The report has
not yet been made public.
It is understood there has been a consid
erable divergence of views among members
of the board as to the location of new posts.
Lieutenant General Miles, the president of
the board, has taken a strong position
against the 'ocatlon of new posts in the
vicinity of great cities, on the ground that
it can only be construed as intended to
menace organized labor, and he hns gone
so far as to enter a formal protest with
Secretary Hoot against such locations.

to-day, discussing a motion made by Sen
ator Teller to reconsider the vote by which
the nomination of Benjamin Daniels as

Only About 3,000 Persons Will See
the Meteor Launched.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 4. Mr. Wallace
Downey, president of the Townsend
Downey Shipbuilding Company, of New
York, which is building the yacht Meteor
for Emperor William, was in Washington
to-day, and talked over with Dr. Hill and
other officials the arrangements for the
launching of the Meteor and the reception
of Prince Henry. Afterward he went to
the White House and discussed with the
President that part of the programme for
the launching which directly concerns the
presidential party. It was found that,
owing to the state of the work, the ar
rangements at this time could be -only of
the most general character. It is esti
mated by Mr. Downey that the launching
stand will accommodate about three hun
dred people, the President, Miss Roosevelt
and Prince Henry having the places of dis
tinction. In the ship yard itself there is
room for about three thousand spectators,
all of whom will be admitted by ticket.
The Kaiser's Yacht Not Scorched.
NEW YORK, Feb. 4.-Much excitement
was caused in the shipyard at Shooters'
Island by a small fire in the hold of the
steamship Saale. The latter, which was in
the great fire at Hoboken, is being rebuilt,
and lies but a short distance from Em
peror William's yacht Meteor. A strong
wind was blowing, and for a moment fears
wer entertained that the flames might
spread. The well-drilled forces of the
shipyard wer quick to act, however, and
in a few moments the . fire was ex
tinguished. MRS. SOFFEL IN TEARS
BEGS NOT TO BE TAKEN TO HER
OLD HOME FOR TRIAL.
Says She Does Not Wish to Further
Humiliate Her Husband Crowd
Views Bodies of the Biddies.
BUTLER, Ta., Feb. 4. Realizing that she
has ruined her husband Mrs. Soffel does
not wish to bring further disgrace and
humiliation on him. She now desires a
change of venue when she faces trial. She
tearfully made this request of Assistant
District Attorney John S. Robb, Jr., of
Allegheny county, in the hospital here to
day. She said she is willing to meet any
fat the law may place upon her, but does
not want the punishment administered in
the courthouse across the street from her
old home. She begged Mr. Robb for almost
two hours to grant her this much, in the
name of her husband, who is Mr. Robb's
friend, and told him that her husband was
in no way to blame for her conduct. Mrs.
Soffel told the attorney that though she
had been charged with a crime against
the State, she had never sinned. She
pleaded that her act was brought about
through her sympathy for the Biddies and
not her love.
Mr. Robb told her he was a friend of her
husband and would like to lighten the
burden of his sorrow and disgrace, but he
could not make any definite promise to
her at this time. Mr. Robb spoke to her
about her case, but she was not inclined
to talk about her flight with the Biddies.
She refused to incriminate those who were
connected with the plot. She told Mr.
Robb that she would not talk any more
until she had consulted with an attorney.
BODIES OF TI1E BIDDLES.
They Are Viewed by a Morbid Crowd
of Women nnd Men.
PITTSBURG, Feb. 4. From 9 to 12
o'clock to-day the bodies of John and Ed
ward Blddle were exposed to public view
at an undertaker establishment on the
South Side, and during the three hours
they were on exhibition several thousand
persons passed before the coffins. As early
as 8 o'clock crowds began to gather, and
despite the cold they stood silently await
ing the open doors. In the crowd were
probably, as many women as men. Inside
Inspector William Schane, Captain Gal
lant and a squad of sixteen officers were
present to preserve order. The bodieä were
in black caskets. The burial will take
place to-morrow morning in one large
grave in Calvary Cemetery.
On the caskets of the Biddies were
sprigs of fern and white carnations sent
for the purpose by some woman whose
identity Is unknown. The flowers were
sent to the undertaker with the request
that they be placed upon the caskets and
that it be known everywhere they were the
gift of a woman. The mob about the un
dertaking establishment became so great
that the doors were closed by the police on
account of the crush. Thousands of peo
ple, mostly women, were unable to gain
admission to view the bodies and for sev
eral hours after the closing of the doors
hundreds lingered about the place, hoping
that the doors would be opened again.
Manv women carried flowers for the dead,
which they left with the undertaker to be
placed on the grave to-morrow.
Where Mrs. Soffel Purchased the Saws
M'KEESPORT, Pa., Feb. 4. There was
much talk in McKeesport to-day, when it
was learned that Mrs. Soffel, of Pittsburg,
came to McKeesport to buy the saws with
which the Blddle boys sawed their way
out of the Allegheny county Jail. About a
month ago a well dressed woman, answer
ing the description of the Biddies accom
plice, came here and asked to be directed
to a hardware store. She went from there
to the hardware store of T. C. McCune,
where she asked for files, but could not be
suited and left. From there she went to
the Hartman Hardware Company and
asked for saws. She did not seem to know
just what she wanted, but asked for saws
that would saw iron. She was finally
suited, made the purchase and left. She
stated she wanted the saws for her hus
band. Later she went to the store of the
McKeesport Hardware Company, where she
purchased a S2 calibre revolver, but got no
ammunition. Little was thought of her
visit at the time, but now from all the evi
dence at hand it seems certain that the
woman who made the purchases was Mrs.

"In my opinion the maximum of heat is

Is, in my opinion, perfect and the result
ditto. The percentage of carbonic acid is

ten hours' burning, and the air Is not dried
to an appreciable extent. I am simply de

Offerings Hearty Greeting?
Given at Knoxvlllc.
KNOXVILLE. Tenn., Feb. 4. The trip of

alternoon was one that they can never for
get. At Cleveland, Athens, Sweetwater,

enthusiastic. At all points Admiral and
Mrs. Schley were called to the rear plat
form of their private car, where the ad

fully 5,000 people who cheered again and
again as the train arrived. The reception

biting cold. Once inside the hotel the
throng in the street could not be satisfied
until the admiral and Mrs. Schley appeared
on the balcony. The admiral made a brief
speech of thanks for the warm welcome

DENIES EVERY CHARGE.
O. M. Carter Replies to the Govern
ment Counsel's Allegations.
SAVANNAH, Ga., Feb. 4.-In the United
States Court for the Southern Circuit of
Georgia to-day' W. G. Charlton, counsel
for O. M. Carter, formerly captain of en
gineers, U. S. A., filed an answer to the
proceedings instituted by the government to
secure possession of property alleged to
have been procured by Carter through con
spiracy and fraud against the government
in connection with river and harbor con
tracts and improvements. The answer
takes the form of a closely-printed pam
phlet of twenty-one pages. Carter denies
every charge of wrong-doing on his part, as
alleged by the government. He reviews his
connection with the river and harbor Im
provements at Savannah and Cumberland
Sound, and asserts that the work was well
and honestly done. He denies having bor
rowed money from Green and Gaynor. or
having received money from or through
them as his part of the profits of contract
work. He asserts that his father-in-law,
the late R. F. WestcottT of New York,
placed considerable sums of money in his
hands, and gave him large gifts of money,
thus accounting for his prosperity. The
answer attacks Capt. C. E. Gillette, who
succeeded Mr. Carter at thl3 pot, and first
reported him to the War Department, aa
one "who has more than once attacked the
good faith and motives of his brother offi
cers." Carter afveges that there is a con
spiracy between Gillette and others "to

Coroner Goldenkranz of certain men In
connection with the Park-avenue dynamite
'explosion. Murray alleged that the district
attorney struck him in the face. In Police
Court to-day, when the case was called,
Murray .said he withdrew the charge on
the advice of the board of coroners.
