PRICE TWO CENTS. TILLMAN REPORTS THE HEPBURN BILL Democratic Senator Merely Pre sents the Measure as Ordered by Committee. ALDRICH ATTEMPTS TO EXPLAIN ACTION JToraker Declares Himself a Foe of Federal Rate Making. Washington, Feb. 26.Expecting a pmted discussion over the report by Ur Tillman of the Hepburn railroad rate bill, the galleries of the senate chamber were crowded when today gession was called to order. An unu sually large number of senators also were in their seats. On Mr. Tillman's desk lay an impos ing pile of documents, the records of the hearings of the interstate commerce commission on the general subiect of government regulation of railroad rates. Sitting beside him was Mr. Bailey, the recognized minority leader the ab eence of Mr. Gorman, and the two sen ators conferred earnestly. Mr. Tillman decided that he was not prepared to make a formal report, and that it would be more effective simply to report the bill in accordance with the resolution adopted by the commit tee, which provides that the members are left free to exercise individual judg ment concerning amendments that may be offered in the senate. Tillman Recognized. As soon as the vice president called for reports of standing committees sev eral senators arose, but Mr liilman was recognized. He announced that he had been instructed by the committee on interstate commerce to report house bill 12,987 without amendment, and ne read the resolution adopted. After a discussion concerning the printing oi the testimony taken the commrttee, an order was made for the publication of 10,000 copies. Mr Tillman gave notice that ne would press the bill to the earliest con sideration. He said that much of the testimony taken was irrelevant and that the committee had employed two merts, Messrs. Newcomb and Adams, id they had made an epitome of tne experts Messrs Newcom and Adams and they had made an epitom of t* testimony, which also will be printed. Tillman's Plans. Mr. Tillman announced that as soon as possible he purposed to digest the testimony and to submit a formal report on the bill. He said that within two weeks he should moVe to make the rate bill the unfinished "business and to dis place the statehood bill if that measure was not disposed of before that time. The transcendent importance of the rate measure and the wide interest the subiect thruout the country, he' said, made it desirable that the bill should be considered without delay. Aldrich Tries to Explain. As soon as he had concluded, Mr. Aldrich was recognized and said: A majority of the republican mem bers of the committee did not join in the favorable report which has just been made by the senator from South Carolina, for the reason that in their .-judgment an attempt should have been Vnad" ov che committee to remedy, by proper amendments, some of the ob vious and admitted defects and omis sions of the bouse bill, and that clear and adequate provision should have been made for sut^ecting the orders of the commission affecting rates to judi cial review. They believed that these amendments were not only necessary to protect the rights of all the parties in interest, but that they were essential to the vitalitv and efficiency of the meas ure. Minority's Position. "With these amendments the minor ity members, with the possible excep tion of the senator from Ohio, who is opposed, as I understand, to all govern ment rate-making, were ready to give their support to the house bill. I beg to assure the senator in charge of the bill that the opponents of the measure in its present form will ask for no unnecessary delays in its consideration. The legislation proposed is of such a character that a most care ful examination of its provisions and the fullest discussion of its terms will be necessary. But beyond this no at tempt will be made to prolong the de bate. Foraker an Open Foe. While Mr. Aldrich was speaking he mentioned the senator from Ohio as a "possible exception," and Mr. Foraker interposed, saying "actual exception." Mr. Culberson said that from the re port made by the senator from South Carolina he noticed that certain mem bers of the committee reserved the right to offer amendments. "The senator is not entirely correct in his statement," interrupted Mr. Tillman. "The resolution was adopted by the committee and all members have reserved rights concerning the offer ing of amendments." Culberson's Substitute. "Well, then," said Mr. Culberson, "I take it that in a large degree the committee's action to be no more or no less than a transfer of a contro versy from the committee to the sen ate chamber. Therefore I offer a sub stitute for the bill just reported. This substitute is in effect the bill on the same subject which I previously in troduced. The bill was ordered printed and to lie on the table until the rate bill is taken up.' LAFAYETTE STATUE TO BE CAST. Washington, Feb. 26 According to a letter received here today from Robert J.

Journal Special Servioe. New York, Feb. 26.By defending Joseph's action in cornering the food supply duringthe seven years of plenty in Egypt and selling it to the people in the seven years of famine, John D. Eockefeller, Jr., in his Bible class yes terday, made the first really public defense, by intimation, of similar meth ods adopted by his father in building up the Standard Oil monopoly. Middle aged and old men crowded tne pews of the Fifth Avenue Baptist church when Mr. Rockefeller began to speak, there being in all 201 members present. Mr. Rockefeller made the point that Joseph's foresight and ability saved the, people of Egypt from starvation, being unprecedented in all the great famines of history. Furthermore, according to the best commentators on the subject, Joseph, in storing the food, exacted only one-fifth of the regular crop from each farmer, this one-fifth being really only the tax each man had to pay to support the government. Joseph not only knew the famine was coming, but all Egypt knew it. Any one could have stored up the food in anticipation of it, but, said Mr. Rocke feller, Joseph knew, as we all do, that it is difficult to get the people to look ahead and provide for emergencies of this kind. It required a man of Jo seph's foresight to do this, and Joseph did the people a great service thereby. In conclusion, Mr. Rockefeller said: "Let us so live that we can walk along the street and lepk everyone in the eye unflinchingly."

In this article Mr. Wallace declares it to be his belief that "it will require more time and money to construct a high level Canal On the 85-foot plan, under the present method of government con trol than it will to construct a sea-level canal provided the work is accomplished by modern efficient methods."

Members of the state board of con trol made a startling discovery today, when they got their fi^st look at the new code of laws. Standing appropriations for the state prison and reformatory, the three in sane hospitals, the Red Wing training school and the institutions at Fari bault and Owatonna seem to be omitted from the revision. These appropria tions have stood for years, and about covered the running expenses of the institutions. If they have been omitted, an extra session of the legislature must be called at once, or the state's penal, correctional and charitable institutions must go out of business. Members of the board of control ap pealed at once to the governor and att'orney general. A conference was called, and met shortly after noon in the governor's office. Those present were Governor Johnson, Messrs. Gould, Leavitt and Rosing of the board of control, George T. Simpson and C. S. Jelley, assistants to the attorney gen eral. Attorney General Young is absent on a vacation. Means Extra Session. The standing appropriations for state departments for the university and the normal schools are plainly cared for in the code, but appropriations es timated at $580,000 for the other in stitutions have not been located. If they are omitted, it is a colossal blun der. Ten institutions with hundreds of employees and thousands of inmates will have no money for maintenance. The dreaded extra' session must be called, and no one can foretell the con sequences when the legislature gets to gether. It cannot be limited. It may supply the omission and adjourn, or it may take up anything. It may even re peal the code, and if it meets, plenty of sentiment in that line will be de veloped. A number of prominent attor neys appealed to Governor Johnson Saturday for the extra session, urging the danger the Btate runs by going un der the code before the bar of the state has had time to be familiar with its contents. The conference of officials was con ducted with the utmost effort at se crecy. It adjourned at 12:45 for lunch, and met again in the governor's of fice immediately after. It is evident that no "provision for these appropria tion* teta yet teeiy-'diwtf^ealr Statute Expressly Repealed. The Anoka and Hastings asylums have no standing appropriations^ as they were not built when thV provision was made in 1889. The appropriations for the ten institutions affected were made in chapter 272 of the laws of 1889, and that chapter is among those named in the repeal chapter of the re vised code. It is, therefore, repealed in express terms, and nothing to take its place has been discovered! None of the state officers in the Becret would discuss the matter today. Until it has been definitely settled as to the status of the institutions, the extra session question will be in the air. It will be decided, however, to day or tomorrow, and if a session must will be called on the calle i i shorteB posaib __ Would it surprise you to know that this proceeding will cost you more than $100,000?" asked Mr. Littleton, coun sel for Colonel Mann. "No, I would not be surprised* We wouldn't mind if it cost twice that amount," answered^the witness. Mr. Collier said he expected to reimburse the city, thru the district attorney office, tor all the money spent for hand writing experts and other witnesses. His paper began its attacks on oi onel Mann in 1904, he said, following the publication in Town Topics of an article reflecting on the private life and social career oAis father, P. F. Collier. He said also that ever since that article appeared he and his father had be*en waiting for the opportunity, which was furnished last summer by the arrest of Charles Ahle, on a charge of attempt ing to blackmail Edwin M. Post, a broker. Mr. Collier said that since he began actively following up the charges against Colonel Mann he has had for this purpose an office at 73 Broadway separate from the office of Collier Weekly. He testified also that he has been paying Charles Stokes Wayne, for mer managing editor of Town Topics, and Moses E. Wooster. the agent for Fads and Fancies, salaries or $100 weekly for their services in connection with the Mann case. i not i Continued on 2d Ptage, 2d Column.

Head of Miners Declares There Will Be No General Walkout. Robbins, of the Operators, Says Coal Strike Cannot Be Averted. New York, Feb. 26.John Mitchell, president of the United Mine Workers of America today indorsed the opinion that there will be no general strike of coal miners on April 1, which wa^s given out last night in Indianapolis by Vice President T. L. Lewis of the United Mine Workers. President Mitchell was shown the vice president 'sN statement in which the latter said, in addition to the assertion there will be no general strike in the mining industry April 1, that operators will restore the reduction ac cepted by the miners two years ago, and perhaps nioie. and that an era or peace will be established for another period of years. After hearing, this statement, Presi dent Mitchell said: guess that is right." -ink, -t Bobbins Is Oloonry-- -M- Francis L. Robbins, president of the Pittsburg Coal company and chairman of the committee of the bituminous op erators, was in New York^today and discussed the statement of Vice Presi dent Lewis as follows: "There is absolutely no change in the situation. I see no prospects of averting a strike on April 1. No meet ing of the operators has been held and I, as chairman, would be the man to call one. Even in case such a proposi tion were made, Mr Mitchell would have to refer it to^khe miners' conven tion. There could be no change of front on the part of- the operators with out a conference anlong them. Because the miners are willing to accept the 1903-04 scale, that is no indication that the soft coal operators-are willing to yield." Mr. Robbins wotHd not say whether he came here to confer with Mr. Mitch ell, but remarked* ''This is a big cfty and I guess Mr. Mitchell will be glaa to see me." He said he expected to return to Pittsburg tonight. Later, President ^Mitchell "went Jfto conference with Mr. Bobbins at the Waldorff-Astoria hotel. To Fix on Old Scale. Indianapolis, Feb. 26.

Journal Special Service. New York, Feb. 26.William C. Well man, president of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters and Butchers' Association of America, is now trying to work up a scheme of co-operation between the Farmers' Alliance and the American Federation of Labor to secure cheap beef. It is proposed to have the farm er establish slaughter houses in the west, where the raw material is pro duced, and the Federation establish 2,000 or more butcher shops in New York city for the sale of the finished product, because, according to his cal culations, the consumer can be fur nished with his beef and other meats at an average of 6 cents a pound less than he is compelled to pay to the beef trust. To Shut Out Trust. Mr. Wellman has secured promises of $2,000,000 subscriptions to the stock of the proposed company from men who will actually engage in the business and it is not proposed to allow any other to obtain shares. No man will be allowed to hold more than a certain amount of the stock of the proposed company, the object being to scatter it in small lots as much as possible, first, so that the trust cannot buy up a control of the company and second, so that every stockholder will feel a personal incentive to promote the interest of the new scheme. Mr. Well man has not yet secured any contracts with the railway companies for the transportation of beef, but is confident that public opinion, congressional pres sure and the justice on the part of the interstate commerce commission will protect the proposed combination from discrimination. Prom Hoof to Block. It is not proposed to deal with the big wholesale or retail dealers in the east nor to cater to the high- class trade, but the 2,000 shops will be es tablished in the residence districts of the working classes and the nucleus of the trade will be the labor unions. After the business has been worked up and well established in New York, it will be extended to Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston and other great cities. The costly system of retail meat dis tribution and the high profits demanded by the retailers and wholesalers have kept up prices to the consumer. Every ttime .the price of beef is advanced it I kama" 4*2 be cited asTprecedent. jceroa^-at tfch^.pa^mijniJljpnre^ JPf-fche,. ,T conditions change it is not reduced.

This shows that the profitgjiave gone to the wohlesaler and retailer and not to the farmer. ALEXANDER TO RECOVER. New York, Feb. 26.The recovery of James W.

Willemstad, Island of Curacao, Feb. 26.Accordingto advices received here from Caracas, President Castro is great ly unnerved as the result of an unsuc cessful attempt by an unknown person to poison Mbst Rev. Dr.Juan Bastista Castro, archbishop of Venezuela, by put ting nitrate of silver in the communal wine on Sunday, Feb. 18, which caused a great sensation. The archbishop some time ago issued an encyclical rebuking the Venezuelan clergy for their immor ality. The attempt on the archbishop's life is generally attributed to a priest. President Castro's next move in the French question will be to call upon the United States to arbitrate the question of the amount of damage done by France in permitting the fitting out of the filibustering steamer Ban Righ, at Fort D France, island of Martinique, to prey upon Venezuelan commerce and transport troops during the Matos re volt.

Washington, Feb. 26.Consul Gener al Eodgers, at Shanghai, cabled the state department, under today's date, that the American mission stations at Nan-chang, in the province of toajg si, have been destroyed. The probable cause is local. Telegrams received from those points state that the fourteen American mis sionaries at those places escaped,but the Kingham family, English, two adults and two children, are reported to have been killed. The American ,gunboat El Cano a* Nankin has been ordered to proceed to Kiu-kiang, where she will probably ar-. rive by Wednesday. The scene of the trouble is about 400 miles up the Yangtse river. A still later dispatch from Mr. Bod gers received today at the state depart ment says that the inland British mis sions are reported to be safe. A cablegram from Commander Fletch er, the senior officer of the Ealeigh, at Shanghai, received at the navy depart ment today, confirms substantially Con sul General Bodgers' report. Menace in Situation. The officials here accept Consul Gen eral Bodgers' suggestion that the trouble at Nanchang is local, as has been the case with the last two proceed ing attacks upon foreign missions in ^j China. Therefore there is little appre hension that the trouble will spread.
