By QIBBON GARDNER. WASHINGTON. D. C., April 12. The defeat of the Payne’Aldrich tariff bill — because It revise* tariff upward Instead of downward — and the crea tion of a tariff commission. is w hut Senator Robt. M. LaFollette will try to bring about. “The entire linpoaaibllit) of having Coy rational adjuatment of the tariff y the methods which are now being employed Is being clearly demonstrat ed," said Seuator LaFollette. ’Busi ness is held up while this tariff hid is talked about, aud th Headers urge that no one Interpose anything which may appear like a dilatory action lest business be unnecessarily halted. Vet there is not time for any member of either branch of congress to find out .factually what this tariff bill contains. Much less Is there time to find out the principles In accordance with which the tariff rates are or ought to be ad justed "The whole scheme Is wrong. And there is every indication that congress Is not acting in good faith. It would he easy, for example, to obviate this j.nsettleroent of business by providing that the new tariff law would not take effect for 12 months after Its passage, j This would give the business of the country ample time to adjust itself to the new conditions. "But the authors of thin bill are us- ; ing every effort to cram the measure | down the people's throats, aud the less they know about It the better It would seem the authors of the bill will be pleased." Will Introduce Bills. Asa substitute for the Aldrich- Pay ne bill. Senator La Toilette will offer, at the proper time, a bill to create a commission of nine tariff ex-' perts to lie appointed by the presi dent, subject to the approval of the senate. The terms of this commission would be from three to il years from the date of their appointment and I their successors would be appined 1 each for a term of ten years. No senators of representatives •would be eligible for appointment No two commissioners could be resi- 1 dents of the same Judicial circuit.) Not more than five could be members of the same political party. One would be required to have a practical knowlfdge of the manufacturing In* dudrry; one of agriculture; one of Import business; one would be a rep resentative of labor; one of special -tariff BrwVer. one a student of domes tic and foreign tariffs fffltT commercial reciprocity; one an expert on cost of production and accounting; one a trained statistician; and one an emi nent economist, who has made a spe cial study of wages and cost of living. Commissioners would draw salaries at the rate of SIO,OOO a year. This tariff commission provided for by the LaFollette bill would bo charged with the duty of revising tariff schedules in accordlnance with the principles act out in the Repub-1 liean national platform—a principle likewise indorsed by the Democratic organization. The difference between the coat of production at home aid abroad Is the difference which ought to determine the tariff at cording to the party declarations. This difference | is merely a matter of fact which enn be determined by Inquiry. Congress is without these facts. To secure them Is no small task. But It la a task which only a body of experts could possibly perform In this fash ion all civilized nations solve the problem. The LaFollette law would give power to this commission to make inquiries, to summon manufacturers and importers and to copel the pro duction of books and papers, it would rftso have the power to make Inquiries abroad. President Would Have Power. Wher the commission had determin ed the difference in cost of produc tion at home and abroad and had thus determined what would be the proper tariff on any particular manufactured product the commission would be em powered to report to the president who would have powed to Immediately •put this tariff into effect by proclama- 1 tlon. The commission would j be required to begin their inquiry with ■ Minority Leader Is Hard Job, But Champ Clark, Os Missouri, Once Farm Hand, Is Leading Some ' WASHINGTON.

He will show also how the bill, while giv ing special favors to special trust in terests puts added burders on the poor and increases the cost of neces sities. DRUGGIBT PAYB *875.

POLICE SWEATBOX IS POPULAR AAYTH Prisoner* Questioned As To Crime, But Stories of Torture Being Resorted To Are Absurd. Police sweatbox —A small room surrounded by steam pipes, where prisoners are tortured by heat until they confess. This Is the definition of the “sweat box" once given on the witness stand by a defendant In the recorder's court. Nothing could be farther from the truth, yet tt expresses quite accurately the popular conception of that myster ious and oft-quoted adjunct of the po lice department. If it can be called an adjunct. • Asa matter of fact the "sweat box" has no actual existence as far as the Detroit police department Is concern ed. It Is a myth. The term had its origin In mariiie circles and Webster defines It as "a small closet In which refractory men are confined." The newspapers probably are responsible, In large measure, for its application to the police department. Decades ago some writer, more enterprising than the rest, saw fit to apply the term to the process of questioning suspected prisoners. The phrase stuck, and, though used only In a metaphorical sense, locally, at least, It has been ac cepted literally by many readers. Not a few persons believe that prisoners are actually and literally sweated Into making confessions, and many an ac cused person, whose guilt had been established beyond all doubt, has been given his liberty because the jury la bored under a similar delusion. * “It Is true that prisoners often sweat when we are questioning them, but it’s not due to the condition of the room,” said Capt. James McDonnell, the vet eran chief of the central detective bu reau, who has been instrumental in securing more confessions than aay other man in the department. "If a man is guilty it doesn’t require steam pipes or any other artificial means to make him perspire. His own con science is sufficient. “If a man is innocent he has nothing to fear when questioned by the police. A man wrongfully accused of crime can almost invariably free himself by a frank statement, while any state ment made by a guilty mania bound to go agulnst him on hia trial. If a man la telling the truth hia state ments, as a rule, can be readily veri fied, and if I am satisfied a man is telling a straight story I will not hesi tate to discharge him. From my ex perience with men I can usually tell whether a prisoner la lying, and con duct my examination accordingly. “A medical student was brought in here once, charged with a serious of fense against a little girl, for which the extreme penalty is life imprison ment. Though he was a young maiv of excellent family connections, things looked pretty black for him when he first came In. But he told a straight forward story, which I verified, and half an hour later he walked out of the office a free man. A guilty man. on the other hand, will drift from one lie into another and the more he talka the deeper he gets in the mire." It has been charged against the po lice department that coercion Is often used In obtaining confessions. If that were true it would show In the record taken by the stenographer, who is al ways present during so-called "sweat box" examinations. Time anil again these records have been Introduced in court and they fall to substantiate the charge. The "sweatbox” fgured prominently in the Percy Uowin murder trial and Bowln's claim that the confession was forced from him on a promise of leni ency doubtless had a beating on the verdict, but the transcript of the state ments taken In police headquarters do not bear out any such state of facts Persons familiar with the case know that Bowin confessed of his own ac cord after he had been Identified by O. Kersten. a Jeweler, as a young man who bad shown a pair of earring'- In a i.aloon the morning after Mrs. Welch's murder. Bowin had told various stories to the police previous to that, all of which were proven to be tissues of lies. After the Identification he broke down and told freely of the mur der. of his disposition of the property be took from the old woman and his movements after the crime, and all his statements were easily corrobor ated. Confessions are usually taken in the iarge room where the detectives of the central bureau have their desks, and always In the presence of several per sons. There is no "torture box" re served solely for sweating purposed That exists only in fancy. "I believe the police are justified in securing a confession whenever they can." says Judge Connolly. "In some communities, no doul t, the presence of •sweating’ prisoners, as it is known. is undoubtedly abused, but not so in De troit. Here prisoners are acrorded ‘every courtesy to which they are en titled. and then some, to use a slang expression." Ass former secretary of |>olice Judge Connolly has been present a* more than ,one confession in police headquarters and knows the practice thoroughly. LOU B. WINBOR DYING.

"Business afTalrs interfered with my plans. I wasn’t able to return for three vears Then I asked her again Again she refused me. Right there I told her I would come back and ask her every three years unless she mar ried someone else. She laughed again. I guess she didn't believe me. didn’t realize how much I wanted her. She must know It by this time. "Now I’m going back again. This time I thins I will win. The last time she almost consented She is mors beautiful in my eyes now than she was 21 vears ago I’m going to tell her so. She has stayed single all this time. That's a good sign."

Mass., April 12.—Ponc*~ nien are today guarding the ruins of four business block* which were do st royed by Are early yesterday caus ing an estimated property loss of $250,* 000. B|x persons lost their lives. They are Edward C. Ventres, electrician; Mrs. Edward C. Ventres. Miss Leslie Ventres, 12, Miss Alice French, book keeper; Miss Isabel Cook, housekeep er. and Miss Mary Spurks, school teacher. Mrs. Katherine Root and her two sons, George and Arthur, were severe ly burned. The Are was discovered i nthe Clif ford building by George Root, who, with his mother and brother, Jived in that building. The loss of life occurred in the Clifford building and resulted primar ily from a series of explosions among the turpentine, paints, oils and dyna mite stored in the cellar of the James Clifford & Sons* company, hardware dealers. The Roots barely had crossed the street after escaping from the build ing before there was a terrific explo sion. which shattered windows within a wide radius and caused the fire alarm to ring. In an instant the Clif ford block was wrapped in flames. Horace Perrlll and his wife, other occupants of the top floor, aroused by the shouts of the Roots, had got hat! way down the front stairs when they saw the Aames leaping up to bar their exit. Three women were below them try ing to get out through the front door, but Perrlll saw that the attempt by that time was useless. He then - his wife through a long corri dor to the back stairs, where he got out In safety. All the other occupants of the Clifford block lost their Urea. The death of Miss Alice French was one of the pitiful tragedies of the morning. While the fire in the Clif ford block was at itß height a woman was seen to climb out of a flame filled room onto a veranda on the sec ond story with her night clothes and her hair ablaze. Staggering to the railing the woman leaped to the side walk beneath, landing in a heap with- I in five or six feet of the blazing walla. Some of the horrified onlookers at tempted to rush in to drag her out, but the intense heat drove them back, and not until the flames had practical ly died out, several hours later, was the body recovered.
