DEMOCRATS WIN DECISIVE VICTORY Cuban Reciprocity Treaty Will Not Become Effective Till In dorsed bv the House. agreement in committee. Strength Shown by the Minority in the Senate Causes Consterna tion ..mong Administra tion Leaders. The Republic Bureau. 14th St. and lennsH&nla Ae. Washington, "March 12 Democrats have drawn first blood In the extra session of the Senate through a victory won to-day In the Senate Committee on Foreign Rela tions regarding the Cuban reciprocity treaty. The committee voted. to report the treaty favorably, but not until an amend ment had been adopted requiring concurrent action on the part of the House. The members of the minority party have Contended from the first that It was neces sary for the two branches of Congress to act Jointly on Cuban reciprocity by reason of the change In the revenues which is in volved by the ratification of the convention Inasmuch a3 the House will nnr ma ,, Ul next December, the treaty cannot go Into effect until after that time, even If there Is no opposition to it in Its present form. The result of this action will be far reaching. The Cuban treaty will be rati fied eventually b the House, which needs only a majority vote, and not the two thirds vote required by the Senate But the more Important result will lie that when Congress meets ugaln It is probable that the tariff question will be opened for prolonged debate. This Is one of the ob jects of the Democrats In forcing the adop tion of the amendment, and another was that they contend that, under the Consti tution, the House must pass on revenue bills The force of the Democratic minority Is felt as it never has been before. It is shown that, with a vigorous leader like Sen ator Gorman, they can accomplish wonders Consternation has attacked the Republican ranks at the strength shown, though the administration leaders profes not to be alarmed. ACREEMFT OX CAAAI, TRC TY. Vote Will Be Taken Tuesday and End of Session Is In Stent. Washington, March 12. There were Im portant developments to-day regarding the treaties pending In the Senate. It was de cided to vote on the Panama Canal treaty on Tuesday next and the Cuban reciprocity treaty was reported to the Senate by the Committee on Foreign Relations. The end of the work for which the extra session was called is. therefore, in sight. The agreement to v ote on the canal treaty was arrived at soon after the Senate as sembled at noon, and without discussion of moment. The terms had been made satis factory to Senator Morganvbefore the re quest to fix a day for the v ote was preferred by Senator Ft e. so the former made no ob jection. The Cuban treaty, w 1th the various amendments agreed on by the Committee on Foreign Relations, then was reported by Mr. Cullom. TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAY. Take Laxative Bromo Qulnlns Tablets.

St. Louis Lodge, No. 9, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, filed a suit jes terday In the Circuit Court for an Injunc tion restraining Charles W. Wall, owner of the Holland building, from excluding that organization from the use of Its lodge hall on the twelfth floor of the building. The petition recites that the lodge ac quired a ten-vear lease of fifteen roams on the eleventh lloor or the building, with the use of the hall on the twelfth floor for meetings and social sessions. The lease was drawn up April 23, 1897, and has more than five-jears to run. Last Thursday, the regular meeting night, the petition al leges, the watchman of the building, act ing under orders of Mr. Wall, refused the plaintiff admission to the hall. It is to prevent a repetition of this action that the restraining order is asked. John H. Holmes of the Humane Society of Missouri, who Is a member of the lodge, said yesterday that Mr. Wall Is anxious to obtain possession of the hall, and has of fered them 12,000 bonus to give up posses sion and seek other quarters. The Elks, he says, are not desirous of giving up their lease at present and seeking other quai ters. and will endeavor to have the courts compel Mr. Wall to live up to the terms of the lease.

MARCH 13, 1903. SI W U. Wm ALFRED BATSON OF MURDER Missouri Boy Charged With Slaving Seven Mcmbcis of the Earl Fam ily Near Welsh, La., Must ray the Death renalty Mother. Who Has Been Constantly at His Side During Both Trials, Faints When the Verdict Is Read and Is Taken From Court room on a Cot. 4 p O .akx TtallllllllllllllMsstsBsHlslllllllllllllllllllllllllliysy O MRS. JOSEPH PAYNE. Of Pr'nceton. Mo. mother of Alfred Batson. who was ronvicled of murder at Lake Charles, La. "When the verdict was read she tainted and was taken from the court room on a cot. RCPUBLIC SPFCIAI. Lake Charles, La . March 12 At S 30 o'clock to-night the Jury in the cne of Alfred E. Batson returned a verdict of guilty of murder In the filrst degree, as charged. This carries the death penalty. Batson's motlir was seated at his side when the Jury came In. When the verdict was read by the court neither mother nor son gave any sign of emotion. A few minutes afterward, however, Mrs. Payne was scn to quiver from head to toe. Then she sat upright, her chin in her hind, for about five minutes nnd suddenly fell back in her chair with a groan. Her face as sumed a deathlike pallor, her form became rigid and every one thought her dead. Deputies went to her assistance, but her condemned son was the first to administer to the poor woman, his dearest friend. He opened her clothing at the throat and chafed her hands In an effort to revive her. COT BROUGHT IN COURT. A cot was brought Into tho courtroom and the woman placed upon (t. Stimulants were administered and in a few minutes she re vived. Her first words were: "Are we still j In the courtroom?" Then she called for her boy. He leaned 1 over her and their lips met. She pre sed him to her breast and wept aloud The deputies called on Batson to go bick to tho Jail and she pleaded with them not to sep arate her from him. Batson heard the sentence read unmoved However, when he took his mother In his arms as she lay upon the cot, his e es tilled with tears. He weakened only for a mo ment. Then, at the suggestion of the court, Mrs. Payne was removed to an ante-room, even as the deputy was'puttlng the hand cuffs on Batson. Then Batson gave way. For the first time he seemed to realize his position. He wept lightly, and his fice as sumed an aged look. He was taken back to the Jail, surrounded by a squad of depu ties, with a morbid throng following at their heels. The State closed Its case this morning shortly before noon The defense then opened Its case and put on three witnesses before dinner. In the afternoon Judge Fred W. Coon of Princeton, SIo , and one other witness were put on the stand, and the de fense closed Its case. This was a rather abrupt ending and proved a surprise to both Batson and his mother. Tho arguments were begun "hortly after 2 o'clock, and at S o'clock the cae was sub mitted to the Jury. Court then took a recess till 8.20, wnen the Jur was brought In and the verdict rendered. I MURDER OF EARL TAMILT. The crime for which Batson is on trial and for which he has once been sentenced to hang is the most heinous In the history of the State of Louisiana. On February 23. 1902. the worliVwas startled with the intelligence that L. S. Barl. a prominent rice grower near Welsh, La . had been murdered, to gether with his wife and four sons AVard, Fay. Lemuel and John. Batson. who had been cmplojed at the Earl place, was suspected of the crime He was traced to Sp'ckard, Mo . and on Febru ary 21 was arrested there. Sheriff John A. Perkins went to the Missouri town Imme diately. The Governor of Missouri would not permit Batson to be extradited, how ever, until he had received a personal as surance from Governor W. W. Heard o this State that Batson would be fully pro tected from violence and afforded a fair trial. Batson was brought back to Louisiana, and. through the strategy of Sheriff Per kins, safely landed in a steel cage in the Calcasieu Parish Jail here. Much excitement prevailed, and for a while there was talk of storming the Jail to lvnch him. but the promise of the State's chief executive killed this idea, and Batson was unrnolested. In due time he was Indicted by the Grand Jury, and in April last was brought to trial, CONVICTED AT FIRST TRIAL. Batson was fortunate In securing good counsel Messrs. Paul A. Sompayrac nnd Winston Overton. oung and successful at torneys. Both feel convinced of their man's Innocence, and have been untiring In their efforts In his behalf, grasping at every pos. siblo chance to save his life, and fighting ctery iota of Incriminating evidence. At tho trial an almost Invulnerable chain ' ;. t" CONVICTED IN FIRST DEGREE. of circumstantial evidence was adduced. John Downs, a liveryman here, was put on the stand, and he testified that Batson haf come to his barn on February 14 and tried to sell a span of mule which he had recog nized as the property of Ward EarL Downs had suspected that the mules were stolen, and told Batson to leave them there while he made inquiries about them. Batson. de parted and did not reUrn. It was on a de scription b Downs that Batson had been arrested Otto Wlnterhilder. a local Jeweler, put on the stand, testified that Batson had come to him with a watch td be repaired, called for and received it, paying for the repairs. The Jeweler, In looking over his books a short while after Batson's arrest, discov ered that tho watch was one iefv a short time previous by Ward Earl, recognizing it by a private jeweler's mark. NO EVIDENCE OF WEAKENING. It was this strong combination of circum stantial evidence which convicted Batson. He claims to have left the employ of the Earls February 12 and gone home by means of freight trains He says that he went west to Beaumont. Tex, and then went to Splckard. Mo , where he was arrested. He has alwas stoutly denied being guilty of Xnc revolting crime, and. notwithstanding ills long confinement and thousands of que rns, cros-examinatlons and Interviews, has shown no evidences of weakening In his story. Being a stranger, not only in Cal casieu Parish, but alo along the lines he emplojed getting home. It is rather difficult for him to establish his alibi. On the last trial he gave descriptions of persons nnd places he had passed through en route to his Missouri home. These per sons, summoned on descriptions furnished by Batson. were brought Into court. Among these was P. A. Emmett of Vinton. La. Baton Immediately recognized him. saying, "That gentleman Is the Vinton barber." Pierre Chslson. another Vinton citizen, was presented to Batson. and the accused man said, "I bought candy from this young man " A waiter at Vinton, brought forward, was immediately recognized by Batson. who re called having purchased a lunch at the re-itnurant where the man, was employed. There persons, while not able to testify positively that Batson had met them, be lieved that he was correct and had dealt with them as claimed. All thee things tend to establish an alibi for the accused man. for it is evident that a ouhg man with nothing especial to at tract notice, should experience difficulty in establishing an alibi CHANGE OF VENUE DENIED. After the last trial, when Batson was con victed and sentenced to death, an appeal was taken to the Supreme Court, based on errors of law. The 1-jdgment of the lower court was reversed oi the ground that doc uments Irrelevant to the Issue had been ad mitted in evidence, to prove handwriting by comparisons. Shortlv after the case had been sent bick to the lower court., Batson applied for a change of venue, on the ground that he could not get a fair and ImparUai trial in Calcasieu Parish, because ot the prejudice existing in the public mind against him. On December IT the motion for the change of venue was argued and the court refused to grant the change. Alter the re fusal to grant the change of venue Batson was retrraigned on the same Indictment on which he had been tried last April, and his case fixed for this month. His second trial was called March G. Immediately after Batson's arrest his mother, Mra Joseph Pajne of Princeton, Mo , came to Louisiana and stajed with her son ill during the tedious, trying trial, comfortlns and encouraging him. She sat at his side all through the proceedings, prompting him to bear up. The death sen tence proved a great shock to the poor woman, and strongly embittered her against the people of Louisiana. MOTHER AT HIS SIDE. Mrs Pane came to Lake Charles early last week to be present at the trial. She Is still the same helpful, shrewd little woman that she was last year, 'and Is as firmly convinced of her son's innocence as ever. Speaking of the case, she said: "r have not the slightest doubt that my boy will bp acquitted of this horrible charge, for I know he did not commit It. "I have Questioned him time and again alwut it, but he has always taken me In his arms and said, 'Mother, you know that I could not have committed that crime,' and I believe in him absolutely. Ed was al ways a rood boy to me. even generous, and' he would not lie to me. I think that nt sfiplre? - COPYRICHT in Anr w cboth iO&Mie&tfisbGfr will zel a fair trial, for the Governor ot Louisiana has pledged him one." Mrs. Pajne brought down from Missouri Probate Judge Fred W. Coon, of Princo ton. Mo , a former school teacher of Bat son. Ho was seen by a representative of The Republic and expressed himself thus: "I have been brought down to Louisiana, as a character witness for Ed Batson. I believe the boy is Innocent of the crime with which ho is charged, and. try as I might. I cannot bring raself to believe that ho could have done the deed. I taught him at school sK jears ago. While he was not conspicuously bright, he was a good scholar, and gave men but little trouble. Ho was a warm-hearted boy, and the last one to whom I would look for the attributes of a degenerate and a criminal." PRESIDENT DISCUSSES PLANS FOR WESTERN TRIP.

While no date for the beginning of the trip can be fixed definitely until the Senate shall have adjourned, it is expected now that it will be not far from April 1.
