Wealthy Chicago Italian Is
Found Dead.
Nine Men Found in a Room, One of
Whom Is Wounded.

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
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

Ralph Cundovo against Oolinda Gondovo,

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

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.

Growing Feeling Against Ac-
tion at Present.
Extra Session Next Month to Act
% on the Cuban Question.
(oiiKrok May Submit It tv the Cuban
« onstitul ional ton
.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.

Minnesota and Wisconsin Legislat
ors Discuss the Qnestion.
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
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.

Frank Hamilton Will Probably Be

Hamilton's Attorneys Will Ask It

•■l-• -■-■- —Prisoner Is Not Well.
R is practically certain that Judge
Brooks will pass entence on Frank Hamil

Court will be in session to-morrow, of
course, but the judges for the most part
will be occupied with special term mat

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
The prisoner is in pretty bad condition,

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«

"E. H. C, general delivery, Minne

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

"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

apology for including him with the other

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
< 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.

One of the rescued passengers gives it
as his belief that the loss of the vessel
was caused by the explosion of her boil

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.

in View.
Referring to a dispatch from New York

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.
