TO HEAR TUCKER CASK Governor Guild Decides to Give Hear- in Prisoner's Behalf. Boston, May 29. Whether petitions for commutation of the sentence of death or imprisonment shall be submit ted to the executive council is optional with the governor, according to the de cision of the supreme court, announced to-day.

At a conference between James H. Vaheyj of Tucker's counsel, and Gov ernor Guild at the executive chamber this afternoon the governor asked Mr. Vahey if he had any objection to the submission of any new evidence, which he might wish to present in the cas to Justices Sheldon and Sherman, who' presided at Tucker's trial. Mr. Vahey answered that he preferred to submit the entire case to the governor in per son. Governor Guild thereupon stated that he would give a heading at which, since all the evidence submitted in the" courts Is already before him, any new evi dence might be presented, together with any reasons for executive clemency such as might be urged by counsel for the prisoner. The governor further stated that he Should request Justices Sheldon and Sherman and counsel who conducted the prosecution's case at the trial to be present, and that he should expect a list of witnesses and the character of the alleged new evidence to be submit ted in advance. The date of the hearing will be an nounced later. It will not be public, but .an official stenographer will be present.

BElOtiTS NETTLED OVER THEIR ARREST DENOUNCE BEING TAKEN INTO CUSTODY TO MAKE QUORUM IN HOUSE, Mr. Gaines Asks Why They are Arrest ed and Republicans Immune Mr. Rucker Calls the Serjeant-at-Arms "A Usurper" and Characterises the Apprehension of Himself and Col league as "Foul and Contemptible." Washington, -May 29. An experience meeting was held to-day in the house of representatives.- It grew out of the arrests made yesterday by the ser- eant-at-arms and his officers, and the haling of the members before the bar of the huuse .in order to , complete a quorum under a call of tne house last evening. The journal set forth the names of the members who had been puaced under arrest by the officers and who, upon presentation at the bar of the house, were discharged from arrest and permitted to vote. Mr. Gaines, of Tennessee, stated that he had left the huuse at 6 o'clock upon a mission of humanity, to inquire after a sick brother. He had gone to his ho tel and was notified that a "call of the house" was on. He went into the cafe of his hotel and saw a number of mem bers there, and notified them that there was a call for a quorum. He responded with others and was overtaken by an officer of the house, who placed him un der arrest, and he was presented to the bar of the house. He wanted to take this opportunity to ask why the demo crats were singled out for arrest and the republicans Immune, and he desired to serve notice that officers of the house must treat all alike. So far as he was concerned, he said, he did not care for the arrest. He was doing a duty to the sick which he would do again, house or no house. Mr.' Rucker, of Missouri, another of those brought before" the bar, followed along similar lines, except to call the sergeant-at-arms "a usurper with no authority to arrest," and to character ize the arrest of himself and a colleague (Mr. Murphy, of Missouri) as "foul and contemptible." Other members recited similar experi ences. Mr. . Payne, of New York, the floor leader of the majority, then rose to move the previous question on the ap proval of the journal. It became ap parent, that the events complained of were the outcome 1 1 a plan on the part of the leaders of ue republican side to keep the republican majority .present to onact legislation He said there was no animus whatsoever back of the arrests, but a practical application of a rule that has been dormant for years. Mr. Payne then lectured the house. He said it was the primary duty of the members to attend upon the sittings of the house dally and remain until the house adjourned. He recalled that In former congresses members forfeited their -.day's pay for .absence, and in several instances members had paid as high as $600 for their non-attendance, Mr. Payne yielded to Mr. Olmsted, of Pennsylvania, to amend the motion to approve the journal by striking out all reference to the arrests made yesterday. The amendment was lost and the jour nal was than approved yeas 223, nays 7, present 160. Mr. Murphy then rose to a question of the highest personal privilege to ar gue the right of the speaker to Issue a warrant of arrest without direct au thority of the house. He contended that the rules of, the house did not give the speaker power to issue warrants for arrest, and that arrests must, fol low by order of the house to the sergeant-at-arms. Speaker Cannot replied by unanimous consent. He explained tne reasons for the directions issued to the sergeant at-arms to bring In absentees. He said that the chair had examined with great care the rules and the precedents relat Ing to the Issue of warrants, and as the rules gave the chair the right verbally to authorize the sergeant-at-arms to bring in absentees, it must per se give him a still greater right to compel at tendance in writing. He alluded to the warrant Issued to the sergeant-at-arms, and stated that It had been Issued under the constitu tion, under the law and under the rules of the house. Then, citing the rules in vogue, and particularly the one passed in the Fifty fourth congress, under which the war rant was Issued, Speaker Cannon, with much deliberation, said: "The ohalr, under the rules, believes that the gentleman was legally arrest ed." The speaker's gavel came down with a bang, and the Incident was closed. HANGED HIMSELF IN TRts Body of Missing; Terryville Man Dis- covered Near His Home. Bristol, May 29.

Threatened He Would Bring Mnttcr Be fore New York Bar Association Be ginning; of the Trouble Between Him and His Counsel Who Is Now Suing for $50,500 for Legal Services. New. York, May 29. Interesting light was thrown on the genesis of the quar rel between Richard A. Canfield and 'his1 former friend, John Delahunty, which 1 brought about the suit' toy the latter for $59,500 for legal services, when during the. proceedings in the supreme court to-day It (developed that Dela hunty had forwlrded to his client a bill for . $10,000 sent by former Judge Edgar L, Fursman. : ; Canfleld's opinion of the propriety of this demand was expressed in' the fol lowing letter written to his lawyer on January 14, 1904: "Dear John: What means' this ex traordinary note which I enclose. Judge Fursman was paid $5,000 for his ser vices in tha Bucklin case last spring. You told me yourself that he was out of tha matter. The only charge he can make against me Is for your consulta tion with him. No man at the bar can make such a charge as. this against me. Nd man can pay such bills. I have already paid out $35,000 exclusive of the tLewisohn case. I shall submit this to the Bar association. The legal pro ceedings In which I have ibeen involved have been a shrieking scandal.' 'I shall not submit to such a proceed ing without making a public protest. "Yours, "!R. A. C." Delahunty testified that he replied curtly to Mr. Canfled that bGth his let ter and that of Judge Fursman were a surprise to him, and that he further told Bucklin, Canfleld's maaager, to tea the latter that he had better not write any more Buch letters, that he would not) take such language from tiantieia or any other man. 'Mr. Delahunty testified later , mat Fursman had received $5,000 at the time he sent in his bill for $10,000, The latter part of January, 1904, there was a meet ing between Furfman, Canfield and Delahunty In which the former Judge was offered $2,500. This he refused to take, but the matter was. finally com promised by giving him, an additional $5,000 check, making his total fee for $10,000. While Mr. Mooney was questioning Mr. Delahunty aibout counsel he had employed when applying for the change of venue in Bucklln's case, the name of iMr. Stanehfield was brought up. The witness was not permitted to say whether the Stanchfiela referred to was a former candidate for governor of New York or not. The letter from CanfleM at Saratoga dated September 2, 1903, referred to Mr. Dunn, who, it stated, had been in terviewed by friends closer than Stanehfield. This did not mean, the letter explained, that Mr. Stanehfield should in any way relax bis efforts but no one wanted any" glory out of the matter only success. Mr. Canfield was satisfied that Mr. Delahunty and Mr. Stanehfield should have all that. It further instructed Mr. Delahunty to tell all the witnesses that Mr. Canfield would derfay all the expenses which they incurred. Counsel for Delahanty announced be fore adjournment that he had little ad ditional . testimony to offer. For Begulation of Price of Mileage Tickets.
