SINCLAIR DEMANDS HEARING Speoial to The Journal Princeton, N. J., June 9.Up- ton Sinclair, author of "The Jungle," today sent the following telegram to Congressman John Sharp Williams in Washington: I request you to urge the dem ocratic members of the committee on agriculture to protect in my right to a hearing upon the Bev erige Mil." meat inspection question this afternoon, and adjourned to Monday morning, when it hopes to perfect a substitute for the Beveridge amendment and pre pare a report to be submitted totije house. From present indications the ma-jority of the committee will stand with Chairman Wadsworth against the Beveridge amendment and favor of such a bill as the packing interests want. It also appears as if that bill would be drawn by Judge Cowan of Texas, who appeared before the committee to day to argne in the interest of the cat tle raisers of the southwest. He had a copy of the Beveridge amendment in hi$ hands while testifying, and it was so filled with pencil marks, suggestive of changes he wanted to make, that he could scarcely figure his way thru it He was asked by Chairman Wadsworth to make a new dTaft of his ideas for the use of the committee on Monday, and this he agreed to do. What Judge Cowan really wants can be written in half a dozen lines. After stating that meat "unfit for food" shall be condemned, his bill will pro vide that all inspection shall be under the direction of the secretary of agri culture, to whose discretion virtually all details are to be left, the government to pay the cost of it. The Beveridge amendment, in addi tion to condemning meats that are un fit for food," condemns also those which are "unsound and unwhole- some." This last named phrase is strenuously objected to by all the pack ing interests, for the reason that much meat that in the^ unmanufactured state is "unsound and unwholesome" may, by scientific treatment, be rendered "fit for food." Compromise on Expense. It also looks as if a compromise would be adopted covering the question of paying for inspection. That compro mise will, unless today's signs mis carry, provide for the appropriation of $1,000,000 or $1,500,000, to pay for in spection during the next fiscal year, thus saddling that cost on the govern ment. There will be a proviso, how ever, to the effect that if this sum should prove insufficient, the secretary of agriculture is authorized to fix in spection fees and collect the same in order to make up the deficit. In this way the cattlemen, who seem to control the committee, hope to report something that can be passed by the house. They argue that the only rea son the president had for urging that the cost be put upon the packers was that there might be adequate inspec tion, congress being likely to provide an insufficient sum for that purpose. The proviso above referred to is in tended to meet the president's objec tion. The house committee held an execu tive session late this afternoon, at which the question of policy was con sidered, and it was agreed that it was highly necessary to pass a law that the ^president would approve. The country, it was admitted, is following his lead, and inspection legislation must there fore be shaped with reference to his views. This admission was made un willingly, beause the exigencies of the situation demanded it.

Coburn ha declined the United States senatorship offered him by Governor Hoch and the place has been offered A. W Benson of Ottawa. Mr. Coburn's principal reason for declining the plaoe seemed to be his reluctance to give up the work which he has been doing as secretary of the board of agriculture for thirteen years. Asked for his reasons tonight, he said: "For eight years I have successively evaded any duty which would require me to go to the Copeland hotel and hang around with_ the pojiticans.

I am a party man and am willing to do what I can for the party, but I would be expected to be over there tonight doing things- for the good of the party and accepting the judg ment of a lot of men whom I do not know, but who believe I should do this or that for the party's sake.

Borne, June 10.Orders have been issued last night to the au thorities of all the Italian cities to arrest the next forty-eight hours, all known anarchists, who are to be detained in custody until after June 24, on which date the king will lay the cornerstone of the new mammoth Ancona cathedral. It was reported early yesterday that the trip contemplated by his majesty had been abandoned be cause of the discovery of several anarchistic plots, and the arrest at Ancona of certain anarchists and the discovery of considerable anar chistic literature showing an at tempt was to be made to kill the king. The king has therefore re considered his plans. An order for wholesale arrests was issued. Attention is also to be directed to the foreign anarchists, and all foreigners found within the bor ders of Italy are to be deported unless they can show absolutely that they are not affiliated with any anarchistic set. Ever since the attempt made on the life of King Alfonso and Queen Victoria the Italian authorities have been very active in locating all anarchists and the leaders of -the "reds" are being continually shadowed. Many have been arrested on technical charges and in several in stances the offenders have been railroaded to prison after perfunct ory court proceedings. $ ?**i**f* '*#***'*jr*r5rrsraiffS. tf.it *1ISANE- UPTER EXPLOSION Thirteen Killed by Dyna- miteGirls May Lose Reason.
