and questioned concerning Ben Hill's
statements. He said that Hills statement
In his affidavit concerning him-elf was cor
rect, while Hills statement beiore the com
mittee reumng to him was in the main in
correct. It was true, he sold, that Hill had
frequently come to him during tho session
or tne Legislature, telling- hlrn that he came
Xrom Senator Cluxk; that Clark wanted him
to come to his room and that he tH!ll
could get him S.lrrj for his vote. He had

ithe effect that he had I sent a telephone

Cafomla. when Ihe Senate ronvened to
day, presented a petition of the California
delegation in Congress of thirty-five asso
ciations and of 1E.0CO people of California
against the ratification of the French and
Jlr. Hoar made the point against the pe
tition that It ought to bo presented In ex
ecutive sefsion. and that even there he
would question the right of a Slate con

was sacred at all times, but the chair held
that tl.o whole matter would have to gu
over to an executive session.
Jir. Pettlgrow of South Dakota secured
the adoption of the following resolution
"That the President be requested, if not
Incompa'dble with public interest, to send

There is no serious questioning of tho In
debtedness to the tradem, but there lfl con

iniiit- Are Needed ("otiil'-
At rh- nieetlrs: nf th- Council, held yes- j
t-nl.iy afternoon. I'ouneilman Kratz Intro- I
dus! a bill wliose purpose, according to .
nls statement, ts to compel the managers ol
the street railway corporations to furnlh
more adwjuate service. Tho provisions of
the bill apply only to the various branches
and divisions of th- St, I.ouls Transit Com
pany's sstem. but Mr. Kratz Informed Ihe
Council that at the n-xt meeting he would
Introduce enough similar measures t brln;r
every stre't railway synera In the city un
der the same conditions.
The bill provides. In brl-f. that the com-
pany operating- the various divisions under
Its chartr r and franchises shall be com
pelled to run cars over each of Its div islons
at Intervals as follows: From u-JS) to 8 a.
m.. at Intervals of not more than I'J min
utes, from S a. m. to sSO p. m., at Intervals
of not more than 4 minutes: from 4:3d p. m.
to S p. m., at Intervals of not more than
H mlnutrs; frcm S p. m. to midnight, at In
tervals of not more than 5 minutes; from
midnight to 5:30 a. in. at Intervals of not
more than an hour.
After th meeting adjourned. Councilman
Kratz explained the purpose of the bill.
"Tim servico afforded thi public by tho
street railway men at the present time." h
raid. "Is Insufficient, and as the railway
managr-.-s em disposed to afford no relief
voluntarily. It Is high tlmo that tho Mu
nicipal Assembly tako the necessary meas
ures to compel a cessaUon of such a condi
tion of affairs as at present exists. The bill
Introduced by Captain Hodges at a previous
meeting, which provides for a reduction of
the fare for passengers not furnished with
seats. Is Insufficient. In my estimation, to
brine about the radical reform necessary,
although It Is a step In the right direction.
The till I have Introduced Is Intended as a
supplemental measure to that. At present,
under the existing ordinances, the railway
people are compelled to run their cars only
at ten and fifteen minute intervals, if my
bill passes, they will be compelled to largely
Increase the number of their cars to comply
with Its provisions.
Tho bills Introduced by Captain Hodgi
and mysvlf do not conflict In any way. If
the railway people attempt to oppose these
measures, and refus any relief, we hav
still other clubs In rerervo to compel them
to recognize the public demand for adt
quat- service. We can make It a rather -penslvo
undertaking for the railway rora
Ianes to attempt to oppose the public

left Washington to-day for a flying- trip
to Cuba. With him were Mrs. Boot. Miss
Itoot. lidwnnl Boot, hia son. Colonel Car
ter. As-lstant Adjutant General: Privato
Secretary W S. Coursey and Arthur
Brooks, atterdaiit. The party had a pcclal
car over the Southern itallroad.
It is e.vpH-til that the trip will occupy
about two wteks. allowing for a week's
tour around the island of Cuba. The army
transport Sedgwick Is on her way to Tamp...
and the iarty will embark on her to-morrow
It Is known that th- main object of tho
trip Is to enable Secretary Boot to confer
personally with General Wood, and as tha
litter will accompany the Secretary on his
tour around the Island, thero will bo umplu
opportunity for such conferences.
It ts gathered from rather urgent com
munications that have Ix-en received hero
from Havana, that notwithstanding the ap
pirent serenity of condition In Havana
and Cuba generally. General Wood has rea
son for grave apprehension as to the future:
r.ot because of tho possibility of outbreaks,
but rather owing to the extremo gravity
of Important ciuestiorus that are prcsjln-r
from all sides for Immediate decision.
