Payne and Dalsell to Hold Responsible Positions. gSwcial to the Indianapolis Journal. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. Spenker Can non has nearly completed the biggest task he will be called upon to perform In the Flf y-eighth Congress. He has been en gaged for weeks in making up the seventy or more committees that comprise the or ganization of the House of Representatives. He has had experience in this line of work before. He is anxious that his administra tion shall be a success, and it is his purpose to form the strongest possible committees out of the excellent material available. Wh n the committee lists are announced there will be great elation on the part of some members and corresponding gloom on the part of others. The number of com mirtee plums is limited. There's not enough to o round. Disappointments and heart aches are bound to follow, but it is predict ed that there will be fewer kicks under "Uncle Joe" Cannon than was the case when Tom Reed, the mighty man from Maine, or Dave Henderson, the deep-voiced veteran from Iowa, wielded the gave I. When a representative called on Mr. Reed to talk about committee assignments the man from Maine listened in silence. Some times he was bitterly sarcastic. Mr. Hen derson, known as "the best of good fel lows" before he was elected speaker, be came sullen, irritable and difficult to ap proach after he had been placed in the chair. "Uncle Joe" Cannon is of a type entirely different from either Reed or Henderson. In appearance he looks like a Western farmer, and his elevation to the high office of speaker has made no change In his hab its or his treatment of his colleagues. He It tactful, considerate and patient. He ap preciates the anxieties of members over committee assignments and listens to the tale of woe of the new representative as if the troubles of the raw recruit were his own. But Mr. Cannon will not let his kind- ly inclinations Influence his determination to Lulld the strongest possible committees. The work of this Congress is Important; It will be followed by a national campaign. I and the men most flt will be placed in places of responsibility. MUCH HARD WORK. In making up the committees of the House the mechanical work Itself is tremendous. Three or four of the most experienced House officers assist the speaker in keeping the boote that are used in Jotting down the list of committees, the vacancies that ex ist, and the preferences of the individual member as they are submitted to the speak er. Various questions are considered in making the assignments. The temperment, abil.ty. industry and knowledge of the indi vidual on certain subjects are carefully can' assed by the presiding officer of the Hotfso For example, in forming the com mittee on ways and means, which frequent ly drafts legislation carrying out party poli.y. great care is taken in the selection of -naterial. A man who is inclined to "buck over the traces," or who Is known as an "off ox" Is rarely assigned to ways and means. Members well versed on th--tanf are frequently singled out for ways and means, this committee having Jurisdic tion over legislation affecting the revenues. The same policy is carried out all along the line Fcr example, lawyers only are placed on the committee on Judiciary. The great committee on appropriations is eagerly ought by members of the House. This committee is generally made up of old veterans on both sides of the chamber. There are only two or three instances where a new member was assigned to this committee in his first term, in making up this committee the speaker often selects men whose districts do not ask for much in i he way of appropriations, it wo-.1 never do to have appropriations made up of men who are constantly clamoring for funds for internal improvements. xxx Of the seventy committees in the House onl about one-third of them are In the i drunk, did the same thiug yesterday after first rank. The new member generally noon, but instead of going to bed he stayed makes a bid for the best committees in in an outer building. His wife found him the House organization. And here is where out there fast asleep and awakening him the patience of the speaker is sorely tried, tried in every way to persuade him to Aa illustration of the methods of Speaker , come to the house. Cannon is shown in the following Incident: A nw representative from the middle West called on him to discuss committee assign ments. He expressed a preference for one of fie leading committees.

MERELY AMUSED CUBANS NEWLAXDS'S ANNEXATION RESOLU TION NOT VIEWED SEHIOISLY. President Palma, Hovvever, Comment ed on It Soberly, Saying: the Time for Such Talk Was Past. II.YVANA, Nov. 21.-The joint resolution introduced in the Cnlted States House by Mr. Newlunds on Friday, inviting Cuba to become a State of the L'nited 8tates, has occasioned a great deal of comment. Many Cubans are amused by it, while some prom inent Spaniards and other persons of for eign birth favor the idea. lu an Interview President Palma com mented with considerable seriousness on the provisions of the resolution. He said that while there possibly might have been a time when the residents of Cuba would have favored voluntary annexation, that time had passed, the stability of the Cuban gov ernment having become so well established that the Cubans had no other desire than to perpetuate it. H. sides this, Cuba's political and commer cial relations with the l'nited States were now settling in a manner so satisfactory that it would be impossible to organize a movement of any importance in the direc tly of annexation. President Palma spoke in terms of warm est commendation of President Roosevelt's effort in reciprocity, and said he believed the big affirmative vote in the House of Representatives was chiefly due to the President's influence. TORCH USED BY A POSSE TWELVE CABINS BURNED AND AL LEGED MURDERERS CAPTURED. How a Sheriff and a Militia Company Averted Bloodshed and Secured the Men They Wanted. LAW TEY. Fla., Nov. 1. Sheriff Johns and a posse last night captured J. S. Bennett, charged with the murder of Depu ty Sheriff Richards last Tuesday, also Bennett's two brothers, who are alleged to have been Implicated in the murder. The capture was effected at the turpen tine camp of D. E. Edward's, twelve miles south of Stake. The arrests were not made until twelve cabins in the camp had hn humeri, when thn men iirrpn r1rrt and were taken to Lake Butler and lodged in jail Tmmedlateiv after the killing Sheriff TnhTia with alA frnm I n, tHo v w a aa - vaaa - a vaw w a a a V IWUI militia company, started in pursuit of the Bennett's, who had fled. They were traced to the Edwards camp and located in one of the cabins. The men opened fire on the posse, which was not returned. For more than an hour the firing was con tinued, while the sheriff demanded in vain the surender of the men. Finally the cabin was fired and the men fled from one cabin to another, each being set on fire until twelve had been burned, and the Bennetts having exhausted their ammunition, sur rendered. TRIED TO SHOOT WIFE ABRAHAM B OSSUM GREW ENRAGED WHILE DRUNK. Realising Seriousness of His Acts, He Tried to Escape., but Was Nabbed hy Patrolman. Worn with care, caused by her wayward husband, Mrs. Abraham Bossum's thirteen unhappy years of married life culminated yesterday in her husband's trying to kill her by firing Ave shots at close range. The trouble which caused the shooting seemed to be merely a repetition of the life led by these two people in the past. It occurred at their home, 921 Bismarck avenue. Bossum, who has been an habitual drunkard and in the habit of coming home Upon entering the house he began slap ping aud teasing his wife, and she growing a Utile angry threatened to bite him, which she did, catching his linger in her mouth once when he tried to slap her. This greatly enraged Bossum, and drawing a gun he told her that he intended shooting her.

SLANG-MAKER IN TOWN GEORGE ADE SEES HIS OWN PLAY, THE COUNTY CHAIRMAN." Appearance of the Young- Author at the Claypool Creates Flatter Among the Employes. IN HANDS OF HIS FRIENDS HB STRUGGLES VAINLY TO KEEP ENGAGEMENT WITH M'CITCHEON. The Tale of a Pianola That Is Tickled by the I inner of Ade Ade and Adelsms. "Not the big one the little yellow one, with card attached," said the tall, well-setup young man in the checked suit and ulster overcoat, pointing with his caue into a pile of satchels Inside the hotel check room. The boy picked up the valise and looked at the card. To himself he spelled out the words, "George Ade, Chicago," and the smile that went over his features as he read the name was certainly a compliment to the owner of the valise. Mr. Ade nest walked to the hotel desk and asked the clerk about his train. "That's Mr. Ade that's George Ade, who said all that good stuff about 'Artie,' " hysterically whispered the check-room boy to the girl at the telephone, and in a moment every bell boy, telephone operator and half the guests in the office of the Claypool were interested. Mr. Ade is used to having his measure taken by crowds and he didn't mind. LOOKED THE PABT. "Gee, but he looks the part, don't he," said the girl on the 'phone, taking in the gifted young slang-maker with languishing glances. Mr. Ade is not what the world calls a "dude," nor is he what is some times referred to as a "swell dresser." But he wears good clothes and he has excel lent taste in his neckwear, and altogether he is a well-groomed and good-looking young man. Mr. Ade came to the city yesterday after noon to see how the "County Chairman" is getting along on the road. He came up from French Lick, where he spent a week and intended returning to Chicago last night. At midnight, however, he was in the position of the politician who "is in the hands of his friends," and at the hour named there was some doubt about his get ting away. "But 1 must be in Chicago to morrow morning, as I have an engagement to breakfast with Mr. McCutcheon." Mr. Ade declared, struggled vainly in the af fecttoaats embrace of a hlf dozen enthu siastic friends. ADE POPULAR HERE. Mr. Ade is very popular in Indianapolis. Many people here know him personally and many others know him by sight. When he walked into the theater last night about 9:30 o'clock and modestly took a seat back in the shadows a hunder pair of eyes were turned from the stage to the man who wrote the play. The Interest in the author seemed to be so general that an Impertinent youth In the audience cried "Rubber!" iust loud enough for everybody to hear and to embarrass a lot of people. Mr. Ade did not make a speech because he was not there for that purpose. He merely stepped in to pay a graceful .acknowledgment to the ac tors. Mr. Ale has recently returned from a visit to New York, and when he goes back to Chicago expects to settle down to Work j again, in Chicago he makes his home with the McCutcheon family, on Schiller strt- t near the Lake Shore drive. The latest news about Mr. Ade is to the effect that id addi tion to his other accomplishments he has become a brilliant plunist and is able to get the most exquisite music out of this instru ment. GOOD ON THE PI.WOLA. Mr. Ade surprised his friends some time ago by setting down to the piano and dashing off one of Mozart's most difficult creations. It was noticed, however, that Mr. Ade always played the same piano. and it finally dev loped that a mechanical attachment, knows as the "pianola," was Mr. Ade's insp'ratlon. He handles the in strument cleverly, however, and the most of his evenings ht spenda in the pretty McCutcheon flat matrix music for the benefit of his friends yd neighbors.

GRIMES ARRESTED AT CLAYPOOL. Dressed In Height of Fashion, They Operated as "Gentlemen" Seeking a Little Pleasure. WHIST CHANGED TO POKER MARKED CARDS AM) SHIFTINESS MADE THE RESl'LT CERTAIN. Loaded Dice and Other Crooked Par aphernalia Found When Rooms Were Searched by Detectives. Detectives Asch and Manning last night arrested Edward L. Hays, a Detroit sales man, and William H. Grimes, a Toledo real estate dealer, at the Claypool Hotel, and slated them at the police station on charges of bunco steering. Hays and Orimes were both dressed in the height of fashion, and from their ap pearances no one would suspect them of being in the bunco business, yet it is said tbolr nnnntlnna hni-n I n 1arro Thow made their headquarters, while in this city, at the Claypool Hotel, and their scheme was to interest fellow-guests of the hotel in an innocent game of whist, which was soon changed to poker at their sugestion. It was in the poker game that the money was said to have changed hands. TIPPED THEIB GAME. Friday afternoon a traveling man giving his name us R. E. Smith, of St. Louis, called at the police station and Informed Sergeant Crane that the bunco men were getting in some strong work among the guests at the Claypool Hotel. He said that while he had plenty of money and en Joyed a game of poker, there were other frequenters of the hotel who could ill afford to loose. He had been asked to join Hayes and Grimes along with another guest of the hotel in a game of whist, he said. After they played whist for some time the game was changed to poker, and being somewhat experienced in the game, Smith soon discovered that he was in the hands of card sharks. He remained In the game long enough to lose $20, after which he stopped playing. The detectives last night made an investigation, which ended In Grimes and Hays being arrested on a charge of gambling. MARKED CARDS FOUND. Later their rooms at the hotel were searched, and the detectives found marked cards, loaded dice, and all the parapher nalia needed for successful cheating. Later Doc Ream, who lives at the Claypool Hotel, told the detectives that he had been beaten out of $60 by the two men wheu they frere in the city several weeks ago, and the charge against the prisoners was at once changed from gambling to bunco It . ring. When first placed under arrest Hays and Grimes told conflicting stories to the de tectives. They at first said they Were from New York and had been at Martinsville for Several months taking treatment. Later they said they were traveling men, aud gave Toledo aud Detroit as their homes. The detectives believe they have arrested two clever criminals. The number of people said to have been fleeced by them is large. ARMITAGES "PINCHED" AGAIN. No Crop Gnnie Running, but Police Hud Their Suspicious. Sergeant Giblin aud Patrolmen Lund and Hillman last night raided a crap game which was running in full blast at Pat O'Brien's resort on Massachusetts avenue. They arrested O'Brien and ten players and slated them It the police station on charges of gambling. The police early last night attempted to raid a crap game in the saloon run by Armitage Bros., but the players were ap prised f the approach of the police and all made themselves scarce. The evidence of a crap game was so strong, however, that the police arrested the Armitage Bros, and con tiscated an old Jool table which they found in the rear loom of the saloon.

THROAT CUT, EAR TO EAR LIFELESS BODY OF WM. CRISE FOIND IN CORNFIELD. Constant Broodlna- Over Ill-Health Led to Suicide, It In Supposed Autopsy Is Held. The lifeless body of William Cruse, with his throat cut from ear to ear. was found in a cornfield just below the schoolhouse in Nora, Ind., yesterday at noon. Cruse disappeared from his home at Nora on Oct. 31. and all trace of him was lost until yesterday. A gold watch and chain and 130 in money were found in the dead man's pockets. Cruse had his arm badly mashed about six months ago in a mill at Anderson, which was very slow in healing, and it is thought that constant brooding over this led him to commit suicide. Deputy Coroner Bennett, of Broad Rip ple, held the autopsy yesterday afternoon. Cruse left two daughters surviving him. CHARGED WITH JILTING J. M. BOBBITT, OF FARMLAND, IND., BITTERLY CONDEMNED. Teacher In the Philippines Accused of Breaking- the Heart of Miss Wil son Formal Charges Made. Speciar to the Indianapolis Journal. WASHINGTON, Nov. 21.-Serious charges have been preferred against J. M. Bob bitt, of Farmland. Randolph county, In diana, a teacher in the Philippines, who was appointed to the position a little more than a year ago. They are made by Rus sell Wilson, also of Farmland, who is tem porarily residing in El Paso, Tex. Wil son's allegations reflect upon the conduct of Bobbitt toward his sister. Miss Wilson, who recently died in Texas. They are con tained in a letter to President Roosevelt, which has been referred by him to the sec retary of war, who has charge of all ques tions relative to the Philippines. Wilson alleges that Bobbitt was engaged to his sister, and that it was his intention to have her follow him to the Philippines, where the couple were to be married. For sev eral months Bobbitt corresponded with the young woman, and finally. In a communi cation which Wilson characterizes as a "cowardly letter," Bobbitt informed Miss Wilson that he no longer loved her. This is said to have broken the young woman's heart. She fell into decline and was taken to El Paso for her health, where she died. Bobbitt is understood to have married since he went to the Philippines. The de partment omcials are at a loss as to what action to take in this case. It is not charged that Bobbitt committed greater wrong than jilting the young woman, and doubt is expressed by some officials -whether he will be removed. Before anything is done a thorough investigation will be made. Wilson is very bitter in his condemnation of Bobbitt, saying that his conduct to ward Miss Wilson makes him unfit for the service of the government BUT $2,000 IN THE VAULT SERIOIS STATE OF AFFAIRS WITH FAILED ELKHART BASK.

Bosworth, absolutely re fused to make any statement in regard to conditions of the affairs of the Indiana National Bank, but late this afternoon it became known that the amount of cash found in the vault, when the time lock opened at 8 o'clock this morning, was only about $'J,000. Though Receiver Bosr.orth refuses to confirm or deny the report, it is verified through other channels. It is known that four different deposits aggre gating $1.8G0 were made on Wednesday a short time before the bank closed for the day, after payment on checks was refused. There is much bitter comment. Depositors streamed to the bank to-day to leave their deposit books.
