The blockade of the appropria tion bills in the filibusters in both houses -cstorda tended to give color to these fetories.

SPENDS CASH LIKE "COAL-OIL JOHN" A. W. Carmichael, "Wheat Broker of Atlanta, Ga., Takes in Sights of New York. CHANGES HOTELS EACH DAY Declares That He "Musn't Be a Cheap Skate" on His Honey moon Trip. NEW YORK. March 5. A. W. Car michael, wheat broker of Atlanta, Ga.. London and Chicago, is in town. Part ot his cash also is here and much of ,11 will be left here. His bride is here, but she expects to stay with tho broker. Carmichael, who 13 rosy checked, styl ishly dressed and quiet in manner, saw Broadway late vestcrday and made a little excitement. Carmichael is hero on his honeymoon, having married a pretty manicurist recently in Atlanta and both alone and in his wife's company he show ered gold and bills In cafes, millinery and tailor shops and other places. Despite his reserve he has a breer.i r.csa that stimulates bell hops, chauf feuis waiters and startled barkeepers. He scared salesmen and delighted his bride with his purchases for her. In fact, he had a lovely day and he became so popular that toward evening ho de cided it would be wise for him to change hotels with his bride. The gossip Is that ho plans to live In a different hotel each day and to engage the most expensive suite in each so that his experience during his brief stay In New York may 1kj as varied as possible. " "It's nothing," said he as he flipped a gold eagle to a waiter this afternoon In the Holland house before taking a taxlcab for another hotel. "My boy, I expect to have only one honeymoon In my life, and of course 1 mustn't be a cheap skate." The broker ordered a 1.S0 cigar and exhibited a roll of thousand dollar bills. He got In the city from Atlanta on Fri day morning. Ho made it distinctly un derstood that h put Atlanta on the hotel register because that's where he got his bride. He spends part of the lime In London, but regards the world as his home. Down In Atlanta, he bought twelve suits of clothes and handed the tailor a $1000 bill. But those clothes did not last him long in this city, and he felt It necessary to vjslt a Fifth avenue tailor yesterday and order a few more suits. When asked If it wa.3 true that he carried $200,000 in bills in a suitcase, the broker said: "Oh, not so many as that. What's the use? There are plenty of banks and I hardly need that much to get along in New York. This Is a cheap town, vou know, nothing like Paris or St. Pctcrslnirg." The young Croesus Is waiting for "Charley De'U-Islu." a chauffeur whom he plck&d up In Atlanta, lo reach here and get ready for the trip to Europe. Then the broker means to buy a car for a tour of the continent. They expect to sail for Europe on Wednesday. CHARLES D.

CAREER OF LEADER OF THE DREADED SOCIETY Succeeds to Captainship at Age of -20, and Soon Acquires Great Wealth. VITERBO. Italy. Thursday. Feb. 13. To -Marshall CapcszutT of the Legion of Carbineers in Naples belongs the credit of having secured from the Camorrists a confession that will figure, in the case of forty-one alleged members of the Ca morra soon to be tried here for the murder of Genaro Cuoccolo and hi3 wife. While the best Italian detectives were at work on the case by order of King Ylctop Emmanuel. Capezzuti disguised himself successfully as a coal heaver, a porter and a peasant and mixed with the worst of criminals, soliciting the honor of becoming a member of the Camorra. Among his most Intimate criminal friends there was one who. whenever the Cuoc colo affair was mentioned, was wont to smile and say. "My dear companion, the police and justice are mistaken. I lmow all about the matter." However, he refused to go further and the marshal, betraying little interest, would say Indifferently: "Tell me about It." . To this the same answer always would be made. "No. my friend, it Is not pos sible yet for me to say. The oath of the society binds me. When you havo taken It you will know all." Tho carbineer bided his time and gained nn ascendancy over the youug man. who was named Gonnaro Abbate magglo, a type of the common degen erate. Abbaicmagglo later was sent to prison for a minor offense Finally Gained His Point. Capezzuti. who had posed as an enemy of tho police, visited the Camorrlst fre quently. Finally Abbaicmagglo confided to him that he. was in love with a girl and that he was loved Irf return. How ever, he despaired of marrying her. Capezzuti said he saw a way out of the .difficulty and promised that as soon as his friend was out of prison lie would land him the money to set him up In business and have a little to "go with." All he desired in return for this favor was a small service. ' He aspired lo be a Camorrlst and wished to have some little knowledge, to hold ovor the heads of members of "the society should thoy show themselves opposed to his admit tance; Accordingly he asked the other to tell what he knew of the Cuoccolo murders. Abbatcmaggio allowed himself lo be templed and eventually confessed what he knew, recommending the greatest cau tion and receiving in exchange for his revelations severnl thousand francs, a cottage at Caserla. a small carl and a good horse. Ho married the girl and Capezzuti went to the wedding in his uni form as a marshal of the carbineers to the astonishment of the bridegroom, who. after some trouble, resigned himself to becoming a polico snv. Career of Alfano. Enrico Alfano. otherwise known as Ericcone. had. it appears, been the head of the sections of the Camorra of Naples since tho death of Clccio Vappsucclo. the most famous of their heads. In IS96. At the latter dale Alfano was 20 vears old and a simple member, but he had great ambition and after pro Ing his rourace took up the threads of the old Camorra reorganizing and establlshinc it as It Is at nresent and calling it the "Bella Suc gieta Reformata" (The Beautiful He formed Socletv). From that moment, ac cording to the testlmonv to be intro duced at the trial on March 11. Alfano was all poxverful. (he commander of the twelve factions of the criminal associa tion which corresponded with the twelve districts of Naples. The society exacted tribute from deal ers In the nublic markets and from the bands of smugglers Infesting the sub urbs, and also assumed the privilege of "protecting" gangs of thieves which were compelled to surrender from 10 to 30 per cent of their loot. Secures Much Wealth. Soon Alfano rose from the position of a boy In a flower shop to opening a store of his own where he sold feed for horses. Then he speculated in cattle at the fair3 and grew rich. Finally he became a usurer, having his headquarters In the Gaffe Fortunio in the center of tho town, where he received his agents and his victims. To those who mentioned the Camorra. ho replied .-smilingly. "Do you really be lieve there is such a thing'.' Why. those are stories of oilier times." About tho year 190.",. the man who Is to be tried as the head of this great criminal organization gave place as "the head of the hearts" of the society lo one of,,hls creatures, a sort of figurehead, a certain Lulgl Zuccl. that he himself might be no longer In the eyo of the police. Apparently he contented himself with be ing head of the most populous and turbu lent district of Naples, the Vicarla. It Is certain thai several times, ac cused of direct complicity In or respon sibility for crimes, among them burg lary, the breaking Into churches, engag ing in Ihe white slave traffic, thefts of jewels and electoral corruption, he con tinually saved himself, or If condemned received a light, sentence. Often he was discharged for lack of evidence. This was only possible, it Is said, through the protection which he received from authorities who owed their election to his Influence, with lh masses.

TIKES PIE I HER HUSBAND IB HOME Mrs. Champ Clark Tells of "Win ning Prizes for Baking Bread and for Darning. LABOJl NOT UNDIGNIFIED Believes Women Should Be Help ful, and Should Vote if They Want To. . WASHINGTON, March 5. "First of all," said Mrs. Champ Clark, wife of the next speaker of the house of repre sentatives, In an Interview today. "If there is anything in so-called social po sition, woman should use every Influ ence to set the example that will react on the Individuals who como under her Influence, of all things, the most de plorable are these so-called fads of so ciety women, extreme in their tenden cies, that cause a continual longing and striving to roach by people who can not nfford it. This trail is very often the downfall of many Individuals, especially women." Mrs. Clark Is tall enough to be grace ful and of commanding appearance, Is one of the most charming matrons at the nation's capital. "Women In the public eye." she con tinued, "who arc continually looked upon as examples, should strive to radiate an atmosphere of simplicity and good that will tend to create tho same sub stance in tho people who desire to emu late or copy them. Some of the ex tremo fashions thus set in vogue are ridiculous. It is much more beautiful to be one's self." Mrs. Clark believes in encouracing Dan Cupid, for. she says. If she could havo her way. every woman In America would have a husband and a home of her own. The Home Comes First. "Primarily." said Mrs. Clark, "Ameri can women are more appreciative and grasp opportunities more readily than any other women In tho world, no mat ter where I hey are; but In my judgment, women should have opportunity to be queen of the home, first of all. all right thinking women must agree with this view. "Now, I do not mean to say thai we must judge the army of women who work accordingly, because their lives noed different treatment, which resolves Itself Into a matter of environment." "Then you do not believe in equal suffrage?" it was suggested. "Oh. yes." she answered. "I believe in suffrage this far: I think women should vote if they want to and if fitted for certain political places, all right; no one can be the judge. It Is a. matter for the individual. Rut that woman was Intended as a helpmate for man goes without saying, and especially should women endeavor to be the helpmate of the American man "I think American men are the stronc est and best. Why, they nearly kill themselves tn work, and women should do everything to make their burdens lighter. The man in the office, the mill. In fact, everywhere, works harder than tho man of any other nation " Takes Prido in Domestic Arts. Mrs. Clark Is of a dmoestlc nature, and takes great pride that she can bake a prize loaf and darn broken garments. She continued: "I nm very proud of tho fact that once I took the prize for baking tho best loaf of bread at a Pike county (Missouri! fair, also one for darning, and I think lnbor not undignified for any of the first ladles of the land at any time. The word 'servant' has been much abused, Its early meaning 'to serve' being beautiful, and certainly there Is nothing better than to do something for some body else. "I think a woman can help in manv ways. and. best of all. let mo reiterate, she should be a helpmate for her hus band if she would reap the rewards. My husband has helncd me as much as I have helped him. But know this (with still more spirit). I do not believe In helping him to the extent of being a doormat." Mrs. Clark believes mutual sympathy and companionship adds lo making tho home lss llnblc to disagreement between husband and wife. "If more women," said Mrs. Clark, "were ever ready to accompany their husbands, we' would have less marital troubles, and the world would b u. bet ter nlacc to live in. for. afler all. com patibility Is only possible where thens Is mutual Interest."

RUINS MARK SPOT WHERE SYNDICATE BLOCK STOOD Loss Estimated at One Million Dollars, Fully Covered by Insurance. MINNEAPOLIS. !Mlnn., March 5. One of the most disastrous fires this city has ever known destroyed today the Syndi cate block on Nicollet avenue, between Fifth and Sixth streets. The total loss is estimated at $1,000,000 and It is pos sible that two lives were lost, although this has not yet been definitely deter mined Twelve persons were rescued from the upper stories of the building, while the flames were roaring around them Some of theso sustained slight Injuries, but none was seriously hurt. The origin of the fire is unknown. The alarm was given by passers-by on Nicol let avenue, who saw the flames burst ing from the second-story window. Be fore the firemen had arrived the tenants of the building who were asleep In the upper rooms began to appear at the win dows, calling for aid. A strong wind was blowing and In a very few minutes the west half of thu building was a furnace. The entire fire department of Minneapolis was called out. but it was totally Inadequate to check the flames Later a call was sent to St. Paul for help and this was Immediate ly furnished. Hemmed in "by Flames. On tho second floor were Mrs. M. Buck and Miss E. Buck, proprietors of a lunch room. Mr. and Irs. Charles Franson, El mer Franson. aged 19; Herbert Franson, aged 20, and Mrs. Inga Franson;" Miss Etta Parsons. 22 years old: Miss Mcrile Downend, IS years of age, and Miss Marie Heller were on the third 'floor. On the fifth floor Mrs. Mary Holllster and Miss Trelcr were hemmed In by flames. Tho members of ihe Franson family, finding all exit by stairways and front Endows cut off, made .for the fire escape on the alley side of the building. Elmer Kranson lenped to the fire escape through a blast of fhames. Holding to the hot irons of the ladder, he aided his mothor to climb through the windows and step upon the platform beside him. As soon as her hands touched the rails Mrs. Franson screamed and would jiavc fallen to the gVound had not Fire man Caldwell leaped to her rescue from a ladder perched against the New Eng land building, which adjoins the Syndi cate building. Caldwell made a leap fully ten feet and took a chance of falling to the pavement, forty feet below. If he missed the fire-escape. Fortunately he struck It right and reached Mrs. Fran son's side not a second too soon. Two Possiblo Victims. He assisted her to the ground while Elmer Franson followed, shouting, "There are two women back thcro in the flames. I saw them fall." Tho firemen made every effort to break Into the building at this place, hut the heat was too great and they were re pulsed. All other members of the Franson fam ily were then assisted down the fire escape and the firemen had little dif ficulty in rescuing the people from the second and fifth floors. Twelve persons in all were taken out of the building by the firemen. None of the tenants received serious Injuries, and all occupants of the upper floors were finally accounted for. It Is believed that young Franson was mistaken when ho said he saw two peo ple In the building as he left tho flrc escape. During the progress of the firo there were several explosions at the west end of the building which lifted the hcavy stonc sidewalks high In the air and scat tered huge pieces of stone about the street. The explosions were attributed to brcaklne sras nines. Several Small Fires Started, The high wind carried embers from the fire high over the business district and a number of small fires started on the roofs of several buildings. Some of these embers fell fourteen squares from the fire, burning awnings and other in flammable materials. The Syndicate building was erected In 1SS2 by a numlier of local business men. About three years ago It was purchased by the Boston Trust company. The west one-third of Ihe building was occupied by the Model Clothing company, whose store occupied five stories. The east ono-thlrd of the building, from base ment to roof, was occupied by the Min neapolis Dry Goods company. Three stories in the center of the block were occupied by Young .t Qulnlan, ladles' tailors; J. P.. Hudson it Son. Jewelers, and Woolworth's flve-nnd-ten-ent store. The upper floors In the center of the building were occupied by numerous doc tors, restaurants and other tenants, about fifty In all. These lost all .their prop erty. The loss of tho Minneapolis Dry Goods company was mostly by water and smoke, as that end of tho building was untouched hv fire. Some of the Losers. The largest Individual losses arc; Model Clolhlng company, $175,000; Min neapolis Dry Goods company. ?3D0,000; J. B.

In a building adjoining tho Syndicate block, suffered a loss of $10,000 by water from bursting hose that was run through the building. Although tho fire broke out early In the morning, It was almost noon before it was under control. For several hours It was feared that the entire business district of Minneapolis would bo swept by the flames. The principal losses are covered by in surance. Late tonight two women who wore asleep In the Syndicate building at the time of the fire were reported missing.

NEW YORK. March 5. Frankly stat ing the disappointment he had experi enced In his ministry to the wealthy Fifth Avenue Baptist church, the Rev. Charles F. Akcd announced today that he had received a unanimous and en thusiastic call to the First Congrega tional church of San Francisco.

Ho regretfully acknowledged his fears that tho great enterprises which he had hoped to lead as pastor of one of the wealthiest churches In America, popu larly known a.-s the John D. Rockefeller church, were only "sucn stuff as dreams are made of," Notwithstanding: the $10,000 salary of fered him when he came here from Pem broke chapel in Liverpool, Eng.. four years ago. and the recent Increase to $12,000, or his ties of friendship in the metropolis, he did not see how he could contemplate a permnnent ministry here. He chafed under the failure of the church to provide a larger edifice and to under take larger enterprises. "So far as we can see today." he said, "there Is no future for this church or for my ministry." He cave the Fifth Avenue pnnrrpra- tion ten days of grace In which to con sider the situation beforo he should say definitely whether he would accept the call to the Pacific coast. "Let those who love me pray for me." he concluded, "that I may make no mis take through erring judgment, and for this church that It may both interpret and accomplish the purposes of Jesus Christ, our Lord. "I owe something to the men and wom en of England who loved me and be lieved In me. who believed in me when to the tens of thousands of the free churchmen of England It looked as though I were deserting them in the hour of need." the statement said. "I believed that the best work of my life would be done beneath the American flag and In association with American churche's. I could give myself to a great work with deathless passion. But such a work does not seem possible in this church." With the admonitions that he should have patience for the evolution of the great things. Dr. Aked replied that such an attitude calls for "the highest type of enthusiasm, the enthusiasm which Il lumines detail and makes drudgery di vine. "Does such a spirit exist in our church?" ho asked. "It is for you to say, not for me." NEPHEW CLAIMS TO HAVE , RIGHT TO EDDY ESTATE Raises Question as to Whether the Son, George W.

Wallcce. chairman of the Com merelal club committee on public lm provements and parks at the conclusion of an interesting discussion last night of what might be done if the citizens carried forward with interest the move ment to give the city park commission something like adequate funds to work with by enacting Into law the measure which passed the house Saturday and which provides for a maximum and mini mum of taxation for a fund to be de voted exclusively to the beautifying of the i Citizens Are Aroused. While a virtually similar measure had been earlier defeated, the prompt and ef fectlve work of the city park commls sion, composed of A. Fred Wev. chair man; C. H. Griffin, Joseph Redman, Rich ard P. Morris and Heber M. Wells, and the Commercial club committee, headed by Mr. Wallace, caused the change in sentiment and the reconsideration of the action taken by the house. These citi zens express confidence that both the senate and Governor Spry will view the measure In the same light as did the house Saturday and afford it their cordial support. If thu measure becomes operative it v. Ill afford the board of park commissioners a fund, realized from a tax of not less than one-half mill and not more than one mill upon each dollar of taxable property in the city, which the cltv coun cil Is compelled to levy, of from $27,501 to $60,000 year?y, based upon Ihe present valuation of taxable property in the city. Step in Bight Direction. "While this measure, in my opinion, does not go far enough. It Is a splendid step In the right direction. What mav be done with the sum that can be raised from this levy will serve to awaken a more general public sentiment and to make the people of Salt Lake see the opnortunltles presented. opportunities that have been neglected, but have been for years ready to be taken advantage of with profit in a double sense both financially and in the satisfaction of the artistic taste." When the question of sccurlnc the pas sage of this park commission bill an pcared lo be a serious one. a luncheon was arranged for last Friday at tho Com inerclal club and It was attended by members of the Commercial club com- ' rnlttec on Improvements and parks, the city park commission and a number of other interested citizens. Laying Flans for Future. IH In reviewing the sentiment manifest IH and at the consensus of opinion expressed IH at that time, Mr. Wallace said: "It Is the hope of the Commercial club committee that the park commission and the city will be able to secure the services of some great landscape architect, some man with the geuuls and ability to tell us just what we should do and how jc should be done. It Is not primarily a question of spending money this year and the next: it is tho moro vital problem of laving plans that will take the great future Into consideration, of understand- JM ing now what will be the needs and con dltlons that will confront us ten. twenty, llftv ycats from now. "Let me give you an Illustration. Last summer I had as my gtiest Architect Bruner, secretary of the New lorlc Civic Improvement association, a body that ab- IH solutely passes upon every Diiblle nn- IH provement that can be made m New York. He rodo with me up City Creek IH canvon to the old waterworks and was jH enraptured both with the view and the possibilities for beautifying by the con- vm ctrnxtinn mirks and boulevards. IH Need United Effort. "A meeting was held at the Commer clal club at which Bruner urged, besged and prayed the citizens to organize a civic association and to take ud earnest this great question of beautifying the cltv and the surrounding region. Let the" people once be aWaJffne.h? realization of this and the rest will be onlv a matter of time. We do not vet seem to understand that we ourselves are Wm losing bv our neglect. I nave learned careful investigation that the stay or the average tourist In Salt Lake Is about twelve hours the stay of the averace tourist in i'os Angeles Is fourteenays. H If we can raise the time of the : sta oi the averace tourist here to one week, aklng tho city so beautiful and at tractive that, he will not be willing to Jm leave.

That must be decided by the man or men who have the gen us. triinlng and experience to speak with authorUy up5h a., question that affects H miuinnc of neonle." IH Unrivaled Opportunity. IH Wallace grew enthusiastic when speak Ing -of the natural beauties of the city. the valley, the mountains and canyons Hpj MUTOunding. and what the hand and brain o ' r "a i might do to, make the region an artist's delight, famed throughout tho tm "The possibilities are simply beyond ex pression " he declared. "For Illustration. Lei the city buy 2000 or 3000 acres of land on the shores of Great SaU Lake. There Is an abundance of fresh water to be had: the transforming of this tract from a saltv waste to a beautirul park could bo accomplished at comparative y small expense within ten years tlm a" the cltv would have one. of tho worlds greatest parks right on the shores of the most wonderful body of salt water in the world. Would it not be an attraction. Would not tourists come from even' if""1 to enjoy the double pleasure?
