In tho House of Com mons to-day the Balfour Unionist! said they were prepared to repeal the parlia ment bill when they came into power, substituting some reform In Its place Tim Spcnkor wos compelled to Intervene several times and tho uproar caused strong language from the Unionist hot spurs. l.oi d Hugh Cecil wanted the Premier punished under the criminal law and Sir Edward Carson spoke or the Premier's "blackmailing letters whereby his Majesty had been trapped " Both icmarks drew o gentlo rebuke from the Chair. Sir Henry asked whether when the King was asked to give his guarantee for the creation of new peerit ho (the King) was advised what effect It might ha ve on the whole liomemle controversy. Winston Churchill, the Home Secretary, who ippliod for th? Premier, created "n sensation by declaring that his Majesty was ncqnaintod with all the matters In dispute, among which one of the most important was home rule This state ment was interpreted to mean that the (iovemmeiu intends to apply the King's guarantee for forclrg the home rule bill through the present session of Par liament The Home Secretary slid: "The Sov ereign takes no part In party politics and does not identify himself with either party, but his Majesty in November was fully acquainted with the facts of the political situatlen and that home rule was one or the matters of dispute. How should there be any mistake about this? It Is absurd to my that we made any secret of the consistent intntion to sue tho machinery of the parliament bill to secure the passage of home rule. In the House of Lords there was digni fied quietude, which "va in marked con trast to th other house. Lord Curzon moved that the fiovernment be censured njong the lin"s of the motion made by Mr. Balfour yeirdiv Th motion carried charges of a breach or the Constitution, coercion or the King, the inadmissibility of creating petrs because the Irish faction demanded it. and finally stigmatized ns a crime the passing of th home rul bill without submitting it to the country- The vote of censure was carried by a vote of :S2 to Gs. Iiord'Crew referring to'the interview h hiuI Mr Asqulth had with the King said: "We suggested that if the opinion or the country clearly be ascertained upon the Parliament bill in the last resort the creation of peers might be the only way or ending. the dispute. His Majesty faced the contingency and entertained the 'suggestion as possible, hut with natural and lgitinvito reluctance " Lord few.

Harwood Sprong, 30 years old. son of J. White Sprong. purchasing agent for the. Dels ware and Hudson llnllroad, and Robert I. Hlckson and James Longshore were arrested here this afternoon on tho charge of robbery in the first degree. It Is al leged that the three men locked Dr. F. M. Joslln of Voorlieesvllle In a room In the Edison Hotel in this city and demanded ISO from him on the thrcit that he would be thrown from the window. The doctor said the three men got nil tho money he had, which was $8. It Is said that tho trio have confessed, saying that they were much in need of money. Sprong has been In this city for about a week. It is said he came here with about $300, but when arrestod he had only SI In his pockets. He engaged a room on the top floor of the Edison Hotel and then Is alleged to have telephoned to Dr. Joslln of Voorheesville, knowing him lo be a man of wealth. Dr. Joslln's story Is: "I was called on the long distance tele phone about I o'clock Monday afternoon by Sprong. I had met him only once. but knew his people. He said he was 111 In his room at the Edison Hotel and asked me to come and see him, but not to tell his people. I told him I would be there about 4 o'clock In the afternoon. "I took my automobile and started for this city, Arriving at. the appointed time. I was met in tho hotel by a bellboy who escorted me to room 32 on the top floor of the hotel, where 1 found Sprong. He was not In bed and 1 had no soonerentered tho room than two other men came In and ono of them locked the door and closed the transom. "Sprong then told me that he didn't call me for any medical purposes, but that he wanted money. He asked me for $50 and told me that If I didn't give it to him I would be thrown from the window to the street and that no one would know how I met death. I told Sprong I didn't have that much money with me and then he asked me to give him a check Tor the amount I told him I didn't have my check book with me. "He then became angry and made a grab after my gold watch. His fingers caught in the chain and we had quite a tussle in which Sprong grabbed a water pitcher and threatened to break it over my head. I finally got free from him. "I then told Sprong that I would give him all the money I had. which was but $S. He consented, and when I gave him this money he threw the key to the door on the ld and told me I could go. I unlocked the door and hurried to the hotel desk, where I reported the matter and then left. However. I was told by the men that If I ever mentioned the matter to the police or any one else I would be killed. They also asked me if I would come back the next day. which was Tuesday, and give them $50. I told them I was game." It is alleged that Longshore was the man who locked the door after the doctor entered. Hickson, who Is the local man, eays he took no part in the robliery, but merely sat In a chair in the room as a witness to everything that occurred. He is held on the smie charge as th two other nvn LOXOOX IHtCKMEX 11 IX. Fnrt Thousand. Hnweer. Still Idle Mrat Imports 'rlpplrl. .jirrMi cihlt ntipnefi lo Inr si n I.ospon. Aug S.

M. to-day, There were at his bedside at tho time of his death Mrs. White and his other daugh ter, Mrs, Alico Rrlggs of Washington. Senator Fryo had been ill for a long timo but his sickness became so serious that he was obliged to resign tho Presidency of the Senate at the present session of Congress nnd he had been nt his home in Lewlston all summer. His Illness took a serious turn about n week ago although he rallied ! somewhat and It was only a few mlnuU'-s before his death that It was realized that tho end was near. Senator Fryo's death means that Maine will bo represented by two Democrats in tho United State Senate, as It will de volvo upon tho present Democratlo (lov crnor, Plalsted, to name Senator Fryo's successor until the Legislature meets one year from noxt winter. There will be probably three active can didates for the honor, William M. Pennell, who was u candidate ngalnst the present Senator Johnson; K. B.

The Senate was not unprepared for the announcement this afternoon of tho drath of Senator Frye, Karly In the extra session Senator Frye. realizing his physical incapacity to preside over the session, wroto his reslg nation and sent it to Vice-President Sher man. Since that time the Senate has been without a President pro tempote, having failed after many ballots to elect, owing to a deadlock Senator Frye was first elected President pro tempore on February 7, ISM. He was reelected six years later and again in 190. He was praotically Vice-President of the United States for nearly six years, his first service beginning with the death of Vice-President Hobart and continuing until the close or President McKinley's first administration. When Theodore Roosevelt assumed the duties or Vice-President at the be ginning or President McKinley's second administration he relieved .Nlr. Frye But when Mr Roosevelt succeeded to the office of President, on the death of Mr McKinley, Senator Frye again be came the acting Vice-President, und continued throughout th first Roosvelt administration. While thus acting he drew the salary of the Vice-President's office and occu pied Uie room just off the Senate chamber, set aside for the Vice-President As presiding officer ho was one of the fairest men who ever occupied that office and was universally esteemed for his Impartial rulings and lack of partisanship. Senator Frye was about SI years old. He had a record for forty years of service in Congress.' His service began in the House, where he continued until March 15. 1SSI. Then he succeeded James 0. Blaine as Senator from the State of Maine and he has hod a continuous service in the Senate, having been reelected five times Before coming to Congress Senator Frye had a public career in Maine He was a member of tho Maine Legislature at 31 years of age, was Mayor of Lewlston at 3d and Attorney-Oeneral of Maine at 37 He was very active in Republican (Kiluics in those days For eight years lie was u member of the Kenublicati national executive committee, serving tn thnt capacity In the campaign of 1H72. lR7fl antl issu He was a Presidential elector in Iffll and a delegate to the Re publican national convention in 1S72. 1H7B and issii He succeeded James (i.

He re ceived the same degree Irom Hates College Jn July, ISHi Senator Fryo was very active In the alumni association of Bowdoln College anil belonged to the Bowdoln Club in Washington and was its president as long ii he would serve in that capacity.
