Cairo. III.. March 7. While the Ohio River

Cairo, which is forty-tHo feet, there Is no

Georgia Lee. which arrived from Memphis
this morning, brought up a number of refu

overflowed and nodded the streets to a
depth of three feet.

Shakespearean stuilcnH of this city, promis
es to revive the old controversy over the
authorship of,thV.!terary works attributed'
to the Bardot'Avon. , . !
He assertsi'Shat 'h?rhks discovered a se
cret key or cipher which will prove to-th?
most skeptical ttiat Bacon wrote the Shakes
peare plavs.
He will issue a book as soon an arrange
ments can be made with his publisher
which will lay bare the whole secret. Until
that time he declines to make it public, be
cause such action would cripple the sale of
the book.
Goode has been working on this key for
vears. He claims to have made his first
discovery fifteen jears asro. and has spent
his time since perfecting his sjstem.
Donnelly and others who have wrestled
with thls problem for jears have not met
with the success that should have been their
portion, according to Mr. Goode. because
they ceased Investigating Just at the time
the wav was about to open up to them to
the i3Messton of. the full secret. Not one
key, but a dozen are required by those who
would master the mvsterles of the Shakes
peareanrauthorshlp. Then a combination of
these keys musa be used, at times. Some
times one alone will suffice, but frequently
more are necesrary. Mr. Goode says:
"The process Is eo simple that I can teach
a child In tenjnlnutes to make a very good
translation, but to make them complete ona

French and other languages. Bacon rajs:
"In every language I proclaimed mjself as
the author of these great tales." and again,
'nir best cipher st6ries are in Latin.'
"I have a table published not later than
1633, which Bacon says Is one of his last
and best. I have translated a small por

It should be remembered that what is cop

"These things were done nearly 300 year
ago by Francis Bacon and his sworn
friends, authors, publishers, prlntors, paper-makers
and soms noblemen who fur
nished the cash In exchange for being put
on record as the greatest things' in all
creation. Here are some more lines from
Bacon's table: ,
" 'Francis Bacon, secret critic, writer;
poet and actor, wrote Hatnltt. Henry the
Fourth (both parts). Much Ado About Noth

Shepherd Called I'p Lon Williams's
Jim Crow" BUI.
Jefferson City, Mo.. March 7. Lon Wil
liams's "Jim Crow" bill came near disrupting
the House this afternoon, when Shepherd of
Buchanan, smarting over the morning's
treatment, moved that the rules be suspend
ed and the bill be placed on final passage.
Williams made a hard and successful fight
to prevent action whenco few members
were present. Hand-dapping, laughter and
shouts punctuated the debate.
- As soon" as Shepherd called up the bill.
Selph seconded the motion. Williams was
on his feet In an Instant. "This Is not com
mon courtesy." Williams maintained. "I
want a full vote on this measure."
Murphy of St. Louis twitted Williams
about his railroad bills, and said he did not
have grit enough to call them cp. "It is the
same way with the 'Jim Crow bill," he
Selph of St. Louis said the World's Fair
was interested in knowing what was to be
done with the African potentates who come
over in 1904. Williams replied to Murphy la
a heated speech, which brought much "xv
plause from all sides. "I have been here,
four terms, and this is the first time I have
ever been accused of being lukewarm with
my corporations bills," he said.
'These Insinuations are vile slanders. I
have never dodged anv thing. There Is merit
enough In this separate coach bill to give
honor and fame to every one who is In
strumental In lta passage. Everlasting in
famy will be ths portion of the man who
rotes against It on a Saturday afternoon.?
While O'Fallon of Holt, was taking the
part of Williams and maintaining that such
an Important measure should not be taken
up with a light house. Shepherd and Selph
withdrew their motion to take up the bill,
and the Incident was closed.
Sixteen Men Appointed ta Expedite
Work In the Honse.
Jefferson City, Mo , March 7. In accord
ance with the resolution adopted this morn
ing. Speaker Whltecotton a few minutes
before adjournment this afternoon an
nounced -the names of members of the
House Calendar Committee.
It will be the duty of this committee to
select the bills which. In the Judgment of
the committee, are most important, and
make up a dally calendar for the House.
This calendar wlU be the House calendar,
no matter what the order of precedence,
may be, but It will be subject to change If
the House should choose to tako up other
bills under suspension of the rules.
In the make-up of the committee the
Speaker named twelve Democrats and four
Republicans, but gave three places to Demo
crats who have acted independently of the
caucus on some measures. The Republicans
are Gardner, Hlldreth. Lett and Speer. The
Filipinos are Chapman, Selph and Davis.
All of the congressional illstncts except the
Seventh and Fourteenth are represented.
The members of the committee are: First
District. Simmons of Shelby and Hlldreth
of Adair: Second District, Glpson of Chari
ton: Third District. Davison of Davies;
.Fourth District, Parkinson of Buchanan;
Fifth District, Chapman of Kansas City;
Sixth District. Harper of Bates; Eighth
District, Speer of Osage; Ninth District.
Tapley of Pike; Tenth District. Collins of
St. Louis and Gardner of St. Lou's County;
Eleventh District, Leonard of St. Louis;
Twelfth District. 6lph of 8t Louis: Thir
teenth District, Lett of Madison; Fifteenth
District, Davis of Barry: Sixteenth Dis
trict, Locker of Pulaski.
Many of the members were surprised
when the committee was announced. The
large proportion of Filipinos put ort by the
Speaker in the 'hope of conciliating them
and getting them to keep within party
lines - angered Representative Davidson,
who regarded it as "sweetness wasted on
the desert air."
Mr. Davidson told some friends that he
did not know but tbe best thing- to do
would be to resign and go home. He told
others that tbe Speaker has made a serious
Some of the Democrats from the Four
teenth District were surprised that their
district had no representation.
A few attributed It to the fact that Rep
resentative Oliver, one of the House lead
ers from that section, had opposed the
resolution to appoint a calendar commit
tee. BothweU. (Rep.) had fmght it, and his
district is also without representation on
the committee. P. E. BURTON.

,- ' t3ed Republican Minority.
..Jefferson City.-Mo.. March 7 Hains's bill
permitting resubmission of county super
vision' In thoee-counties where it has been
adopted passed the House this afternoon
without a dissenting vote.
'The Book Trust has won its fight for
no legislation." said Mr. Davidson of Ma
rlon, chairman of the House Democratic
caucus and the Text-Book Committee, to
nlght tThc trust has used the old tool ot
the lobby, the Republican minority, and
should now return Its thanks to this com
pact , -House organization for delavlng and
opposing legislation aimed to relieve the
parents from the. high prices charged by
the trust. It Is the same game that was
olayed so strongly by the Republican mi
nority in the Senate last session.
"Taklnc advantage of the Filipino move
ment, the House Republicans can now go
back to their constituents and explain as
best they are able their course in this mat
ter. They say Kansas is buving school
books cheaper than Missouri. These Re
publicans are allowing themselves to be
used body and soul to maintain high prices.
The bill to remedy conditions, which was
made a special order for next Tuesday, will
not pass no one knows It better than I do
but I do Intend to put the opposition on
rrccrd by roll calls, so that the parents
may know who are their friends and who
their enemlea."
Mr. Davidson's concise statement of con
ditions has followed the weeks of caucus
ing. All efforts to break. the Filipino com
bination have failed. Its fight against leg
islation which would permit new contracts
to be made is regarded as practically set
tled. The matter will probably be rehashed
