PEICE TWO CENTS. KILLED BY THE MAFIA Wealthy Chicago Italian Is Found Dead. POLICE MAKE A RAID Nine Men Found in a Room, One of Whom Is Wounded. THEY BELONG TO SICILIAN ORDER Kuives anil Revolver* in the Room— v\ .-apoii in the Dcait Man's Pocket. Chicago, Feb. 22.--A murder believed to be the result of a vendetta, was committed late last night near Grand and Milwaukee avenues. Salvatore Giovanna was found shot through the heart. Carlo Battista, who recently arrived from New York, was standing over him. Battista says he and the murdered man were warm friends, and thai while on the way to Giovanni's home, they were attacked by three men. Battista was not injured. He carried a revolver, which had not been fired. lr the dead man's coat pocket, was a revolver, from which three shots had been fired. In his pockets also were many counterfeit coins. Giovanni, one of the most prominent Italians in Chicago, was a member of several secret societies. He came here from New York, seven years ago. The police believe that he was the victim of the Mafia and that he was murdered with the weapon found on him. Battista is held pending investigation. Within five hours after the murder the police raided a house at 141 Milton ave nue and arrested nine Italians, said to be sympathizers of the Chicago branch of the .\kfla society. The persons arrested are: Dominic Catalan, Nofel Philip, Ra fael Lita. Capalnan Makea. Nalkaer Erna, John Ronte, Simon Rafael. Tony Spargno and Joseph Mariso. Joseph Mariso has a severe bullet wound in the mouth. The nine men were hud •:. 1 in a small room. In the room were found numerous dirks, stillettos and re volvers. A deposition in the divorce case of Dr. Ralph Cundovo against Oolinda Gondovo, TOO S Fourth street. St.. Louis, was found on the dead man. Ie is believed that Gio vanni was acting as agent for some attor ney, and this may have had something to do with the plot to end his life. Giovanni and Battista were friends in Italy. For seven years Giovanna was a labor contractor in New York and Boston. Three years ago he came to Chicago and conducted a cigar store on Polk street. Six months ago he engaged in the restau rant business. He had considerable means. At 3 o'clock this morning, one of the prisoners said the members of the band belonged to an organization known as the Sicilian order and that Mariso was the president of the order. Motive for the Murder. A clew- to the motive for the murder •was found among the letters in Giovanni's pockets. One of these, written by a man in St. Louis, spoke of a murder commit ted in Mulberry street. New York, to ■which Giovanni was a witness. The the ory of the police is that Giovanni was murdered to prevent his appearance at the trial. Letters found in the murdered man's pockets showed that he had been summoned east as a witness. The Mafia society is mentioned in the case, but as yet there is no evidence di rectly implicating that society. In connection with the murder, the sa loon of Frank Moiicl, 57 Grand avenue, was raided to-day by the police. The proprietor and ten inmates were arrested.

MAY NBEBf HEREVENUE Extra Session Next Month to Act % on the Cuban Question. DECLARATION OF THE RELATIONS (oiiKrok May Submit It tv the Cuban « onstitul ional ton veutiun. .From The Journal Bureau, Room 48, JPobI Building, Washington. Washington, Feb. —A growing senti ment is observed in congress to the effect that perhaps it would be just as well if no war revenue reduction were made at this session. The wisdom of taking off between $40,000,000 and $50,000,000 of reve nue is doubted in many quarters, and may ; ultimately control, if the house,and sen ate conferees do not speedily agree. The interests pressing for immediate ac tion are the brewers and tobacco dealers. They are both deeply interested, as more than one-half the taxes proposed to be taken off will be. for the express; relief of the brewers and tobacco men. A year from now all the revenue that is raised under the existing law may be needed, and as long as there are bonds to be paid off, it is beginning to be urged that there is no necessity for action at this session. If a deficit should develop a year from now. owing to troubles in Cuba, or for any other reason, the repub- j lican leaders would become the laughing i stock of the country. None of the blame j could be put on the administration, for it is distinctly recommended that not more than $30,000,000 be taken off from the revenues, while the bill that passed j the house would make a reduction of $40,000,000, and according to Mr. Allison, j the senate bill will take off from $45,000, --000 to $50,000,000. There is deep significance in the sugges | tion of well-informed members of both I made since the conferees have been dead i locked, that the war revenue ought not to be reduced until it is known definitely what the final solution of the Cuban prob lem is to be. • It is believed that an extra session to consider the Cuban question will be called for March 18 or 25. Senators, who have hitherto been directing all their efforts to secure the abandonment of the extra ses sion idea have desisted and now talk about the convening of congress as a set tled fact. -. ...^.u-,. . • -. : While the Cubans will, in all probabili ty, accept some of the suggestions as to their relations with this country which have been made by the president, it does not seem likely that a full solution of the problem can be made by the constitutional convention. The president expects, there fore, to call to the attention of congress, in the message which he will submit at the beginning of the extra session, the necessity which has arisen for a complete outlining of the policy of the United States toward Cuba. It is known the constitution will not contain any reference to American rela tions, but these will be expressed in a supplemental convention. Congress will be asked to ratify or amend this declara tion and in the meantime United States troops will remain in the island. The president does not believe that upon'him alone should be placed the responsibility j of deciding upon the relations with Cuba. The serious character of the problem vs appreciated by the utter lack of unanimi ty among senators as to the best method of its solution. All agree, however, that the situation is critical and that it pre sents many new and novel features, which will require most careful consideration. Many senators are opposed to any decla ration in a Cuban constitution, on the ground that such a document could be, and probably would be, amended without warning to the United States. They pre fer some treaty stipulation, which would be a binding contract, but they realize that no treaty can be negotiated without recognizing the Cuban government. Taking the attitude of ihe United States toward the South American republics as a precedent, it is found that no treaty was ever negotiated with any of those governments until formal recognition had been granted. # The necessity of deliberate action before recognizing any government in Cuba is fully appreciated, and it may be that the dilemma will be met by declaration to which the Cuban convention will be asked to give its assent. This declaration will set forth the well-known conditions which this government will require to be ob served, including sites for naval stations an agreement that no treaties will be made with foreign nations without the sanction of this country, and that no debts will be placed in Europe. While these provisions are under con sideration the troops will probably remain in the island. The president is of the opinion that the work of the extra session can be speedily concluded, provided the entire time is devoted to the consideration of Cuban affairs- —W. W. Jermane.

Senator Kyle saw the secretary of the treasury and the commissioner of internal revenue regarding the new South and North Dakota internal revenue district. No prom ises as to favorable reports were made, but Senator Kyle feels more encouraged than ever before. There Is considerable opposi tion to the establishment of the new district, which will have to be overcome before the president's orders are issued, and the fight must be kept up until action is taken by the chief executive. FRIDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 22, 1901. TAXATION OF BOATS Minnesota and Wisconsin Legislat ors Discuss the Qnestion. TRI-STATE ACTION IS PROPOSED Michigan Will Be Invited to Join With WiHconnln and Minne sota in I nlform Legislation. Every condition that surrounds vessel! taxation was discussed this morning at the conference at the Windsor j hotel between j Wisconsin and Minnesota legislators. The visitors, with the exception of Representa tive August Vinn, of Milwaukee, arrived last night. Senator E. G. Mills,' of West Superior, and Representative Henry Over beck, of Sturgeon Bay, with Mr. Vinn, make up Wisconsin's commission. The conference this -morning made Sena tor Mills chairman and Representative Laybourn, of Duluth, secretary. The ses sion was executive, but it may be said that i the Wisconsin men reviewed the various attempts in that state to bring shipping within the domain of the taxing power. This was followed by a proposition that Minnesota and Wisconsin adopt some mu tually satisfactory program -which would allow a maximum rate to be imposed with out driving the vessel owners to ports out side of the two states. The necessity for communicating with the Michigan legisla ture then became apparent, inasmuch as vessel taxation is being considered at this time by that body. It was decided to in form the Michigan legislative authorities of what was proposed. The conference then adjourned, subject to the call of the chair man. Senator Mills," with his two colleagues, left on the afternoon train for the head of the lakes. No Increase on Wisconsin Registry. Some interesting facts were disclosed during the discussion.' It was claimed by the Wisconsin lawmakers that within the last five years tonnage on the lakes had doubled, notwithstanding which fact there had been practically no increase in the registry list of any port in Wisconsin. During this time practically 240 vessels have taken out registration in Duluth, a total of 300,000 tons in round numbers. At the present time there are two bills before the Wisconsin legislature provid ing for vessel taxation. One is an exact copy of the Minnesota law of 1895, save that the rate is reduced from three cents a ton to ne cent. Up to 1895, Wisconsin applied local assessment to all shipping. Subsequently a plan was evolved whereby the value of the vessel was made the basis for the tax. This porved so defective in operation that the law was repealed at the last session. The necessity for con sultation which Michigan is emphasized by the fear of Wisconsin and Minnesota state officials that to impose a heavier tax at the head of the lakes will drive all vessels to some Michigan port, or else to New York. The biennial report of the Minnesota state auditor shows that during hte last year and a half there has been collected from vessels registered at Duluth some thing over $11,000. This is not a large amount, but the tax itself by no means represents the benefit accruing from a large, registry list. Vessels ordinarily win ter at the port from which they hail, end to have several fleets shored at Du luth means heavy expenditures of money in several directions. There is always an item ofr repairs during the winter, : an other for new supplies, and : still another for the men employed. And, incidentally, there is the advertising derived from hav ing a vessel carry the name of its. home port wherever it tseams. , The Minnesota law of 1895 was enacted at th« instance of prominent Duluth busi ness men, who at that time were anxious to have at least one of the large lake fleets register in Duluth. They were so successful in their representations to vessel owners after the bill had been passed that a heavy tonnage was removed from Buffalo to Duulth.

Mrs. McLean congratulated Mrs. Fair banks, addressing her as president general and requesting permission to address the house for ten minutes. The chair ruled that Mrs. Fairbanks had not yet taken her eeat, and Mrs. McLean must address the present chairman. Mrs. McLean then asked the chair, who put the question to the house, and permisison was granted. Mrs. McLean said that while her relations with Mrs. Fairbanks had been slight they were always agreeable. Mrs. McLean thanked those who had been friends to the principles she represented and then ad dressed Mrs. Fairbanks, asking her to be a fair presiding officer and to protect the members of the Daughters of the American Revolution from calumny. At this point, amid hisses and applause, Mrs. McLean was ruled out of order by Mrs. Manning. Mrs. McLean continued, saying that she ■was incapable of doing aught to prevent a legal election, or to do anything else which she believed to be wrong. Mrs. Fairbanks then addressed the house, thanking the members who had identified themselves with her. Later ehe invited the Daughters and visitors to a reception on Saturday and a rising vote of thanks was tendered her. NO KENNEDY VERDICT Jury In the A'ew York Mnrder Case Is Unable to Agree.

STAY OF TWENTY OR THIRTY DAYS Hamilton's Attorneys Will Ask It When Sentence It» Pronounced •■l-• -■-■- —Prisoner Is Not Well. R is practically certain that Judge Brooks will pass entence on Frank Hamil ton next Monday morning. -It rests en tirely with the court to take action in this matter and there is ho disposition on the part of Mr. Hamilton or his counsel to make any suggestions. Xeither is Coun ty Attorney Boardman particularly inter ested. Court will be in session to-morrow, of course, but the judges for the most part will be occupied with special term mat ters in the morning and in the afternoon they rarely return to the courthouse. Then, again, Jndge Brooks likes to sleep over his decisions, even after he has made up his mind, and in this case, to which attaches much public interest and which is of such a serious character, he will take ample time. For these reasons it may fairly be expected that Hamilton will not be sentenced until Monday morn ing. Without having heard from the court in any way, R. L. Penney does not expect further action until Monday, though he will not be surprised if Hamil ton is ordered to appear some time to morrow. The prisoner is in pretty bad condition, though his distress is of a physical nature and not mental. A persistent cough racks his body, producing a general weakness, and food, even of the daintiest kind, is not retained in his stomach. With such physical ailments he could not be in a cheerful. His spirit is undaunted, however,and his faith in his own innocence has in no wise been shaken by t the verdict of the jury. In the main he "takes what fate has al lotted to him philosophically and greets his numerous friends cordially when they call. Any intimation that he is breaking down mentally is resented most emphat ically. Hamilton held a long consultation this morning with his attorneys, Robert L Penney and Frank M. Xye. That they were planning for the future is probably true, but what line of action was agreed upon Mr. Penney declined to say It i« assumed that an effort to secure a new trial will be made and the first step will doubtless be taken at the time sentence is passed, with a request for a stay of sentence for twenty or more days PABODY'S HEROK .SACRIFICE N»n -Shi ok in* Juror Took II is Mar- tj nliim Bravely. "E. H. C, general delivery, Minne apolis." who writes under the pseudonym of "Taxpayer." demands a new trial for Hamilton. E. H. C. objects to Juror L. T. Lincoln's admission in an interview that he smoked 400 cigars in fourteen days. If the other members of the jury, she says are addicted to "the same dissipated habit, their verdict should be set aside as in competent." "They were in about as fit mental con dition," she goes on. "after the nicotine imbibed by smoking 400 cigars in fourteen days to arrive at a just and intelligent verdict as were the drunken witnesses in the Hamilton case to give truthful and in telligent testimony. "I believe Mr. Hamilton should be given a new (rial and try if twelve jurymen can not be found whose brain will not be be fuddled by the nicotine of 400 cigars in fourteen days." 1 Juror Pabndy Agree* With Her. Miss C. has the sympathy of Juror Pa body and should promptly tender him an apology for including him with the other eleven devotees of the "weed." Miss C. should know, and in justice this is intended to let her know, that The Journal has it from that young man in a public statement made this morning, that he is the only one of the twelve wHo does not use tobacco. Mr. Pabody looks wan and worn. He said that he was feeling all out of sorts, but that fresh air was rapidly bringing him back to health. Just as Miss Taxpayer says, his col leagues on the jury are all inveterate smokers. They smoked from morn till dewy eve. Mr. Pabody began to gasp like a flsh out of water the very first day of close confinement. Unable longer to stand the strain, he made for the window i which o£>ens on the courthouse court, and 16 PAGES-FIVE O'CLOCK. STEAMER SINKS IN TWENTY MINUTES Between 50 and 150 Go Down With the Rio de Janeiro, Wrecked Outside Golden Gate. Steamer From the Orient and Hon olulu Strikes Hidden Rock This Morning in a Fog. It Is Thought That Only Three Boats Left the Sinking Ship-Consul Wildman Probably Lost. San Francisco, Feb. 22.—The steamer Rio de Janiero, Captain Ward, from the orient and Honolulu, struck on a rock early to-day just outside the Golden Gate and sank in twenty minutes. The loss of life is estimated from 50 to 150. The smokestack and a part of the pilot house are above water. The steamer had been lying off the heads all Dight, an unusually heavy fog preventing her from entering the harbor. At 5 o'clock this morning she weighed anchor and headed for the city in charge of Pilot Frank Jordan. Shortly afterwards the vessel struck a hidden rock, and Pilot Jordan shouted for all on board to take to the boats. Wildest confusion prevailed, the passen gers and crew a^ike scrambled for the boats and many jumped overboard. Captain Ward ordered several of the boats alongside and the ladies of the cabin and some of the male passengers were placed in them. The boats were manned by part of the crew and headed citywards. Only Three Boats. So far as known but three of the ship's boats left the vessel. On board the Rio de Janeiro were twen ty-nine cabin passengers, 150 in the steer age and 140 in the-vrew. Tugs and other small boats quickly put out from this city, and a number already have returned with large numbers of the rescued. < oiimul Wildmau Lost. It is almost certain that United States Consul Wildman of Hong Kong, his wife and two children are among the lost. Nothing has been seen of the family since the vessel struck the rock. Purser John Rooney is missing and all of his papers are believed to have gone down with the vessel. Unless he is found alive or his pouch recovered, it will be impossible to determine the total loss of life'until the agents of the company in the orient and in Honolulu can communi cate their passenger lists. l'crini|)s mi Explosion. One of the rescued passengers gives it as his belief that the loss of the vessel was caused by the explosion of her boil ers. * These Are Saved. Following is a list of the known saved: Mrs. K. West, Mrs. Reilly, Miss Lehrman, J. K. Carpenter, an Oakland, CaL, capi- was in the act of elevating it when Mr. Oakley said: "No!" Xo Fresh Air for Oakley. Mr. Oakely was one of the most influ ential members of the jury. Besides, he has gray hairs and insisted on being re spected. He explained that he was very susceptible to colds and that a draught from the window would probably lay him low with pneumonia and incapacitate him from further jury service. Mr. Pabody, still gasping, at first ex postulated. Then out of deference to the father of the jury, he took his hands off the window. Since then for fourteen days and nights his martyrdom has been something; ter rible —one of the sublimest spectacles of self-sacrifice in the history of juries, where twelve men heretofore unknown to each other are suddenly brought together on the most intimate terms that could exist between bosom friends. The smoke irritated his throat and his eyes and kept him blowing, sneezing and hacking during all of his captivity. And through it all, the windows were'kept shut by order of Mr. Oakley. MOT JLOST -SIGHT OF Hamilton*!) Friend* Have Kept Him in View. Referring to a dispatch from New York published in The Journal yesterday, friends of Frank Hamilton say that it is not true that his friends and relatives have not kept track of him. On the con- i trary, they have, and were in close com- j munication with him both before and since the killing of Day. While in Colorado for his health he was liberally supplied with funds by a relative who has since been very solicitous for his welfare.

Hecht, a German officer, was rescued by the life saving crew and Immediately upon being taken ashore he was driven to the California hotel. He said that the fog prevented him from see ing what was going on in the -work of, rescue. He procured a life preserver, fastened it about his waist and jumped overboard. He was in the water only a short time. Under Half Stea'iu. Pilot Jordan was taken on board yea terday afternoon Inside the Farallones. The ship then laid to until 4:30 o'clock this morning, when the weather cleared somewhat. The steamer then started un der half steam toward point Bonito. She held to her course until 5:20 a. m., when she struck a rock. There was a terrific jar. The steamer kept an even keel for fifteen minutes when she sud denly plunged downward bow first.
