THE HOUSE SET
Will Take No Risks in State
BILL TO BE KEPT ALIVE
The Majority to Be Pledged to Main

Washington, Feb. 17. A plan was
perfected today by the leaders of the
house whereby the statehood bill may
be brought into thr.t body and sent to
conference without running- the slight
est risk of having the senate amend
ments concurred in by the union of a
few republican votes with those of the
minority." No effort will be made to
send the bill to conference until as
surances are forthcoming that the sen
ate fully appreciates the unyielding po
sition the house has assuinea.
If such assurances are received, the
rule will be drawn unuer which the
bill can be sent to conference without
subjecting it to a motion to concur in
the senate amendments. Before this
rule is presented to the. house fbr adop

Washington, Feb. 11. (Special.)
Judge K. A. Tu ker of Humboldt, Neb.,
who lias been appointed to succeed As
sociate Justice George R. Davis of
Arizona, resigned as judge of the first
judicial district is a graduate of the
University of Wisconsin. He is fifty
years" of age. He has practicel law for
twenty years and has had the endorse
ment of the representatives and sena
tors of Nebraska. For several years
he has been an energetic republican
When Judge Eugene A. Tucker
reaches Phoenix, if he comes anytime
in the near future, he will be greeted
by at least one of his fellow townsmen
who will extend to him a cordial wel
come and hearty congratulation. It is
rr. F. C. Wiser of Falls City, Rich
ardson Co., 'eb. Judge Tucker's home
is in Humboldt in the same county. Mr.
Wiser came here a few weeks ago for
the winter. He is stopping at the Ford
hotel a:id his mission is the testing of
a new remedy for the cure of con
sumption. Dr. Wiser in speaking of Judge
Tucker yesterday said they had lived
in the same county for the last thirty
years and that Judge Tucker had
been frequently honored by his fellow
eitizeiio in o.'Iicial preferrment. Dr.
Wiser said that u hiie he was a demo
crat he knew Judge Tucker to be a
very competent man, an estimable
citizen and a shrewd politician. The
latter testimonial he reinforced by the
statement that hile the county was
democratic by 200 it always managed
to go republican when Judge Tucker
was made chairman of the county cen
tral committee. He has a faculty for
organizing that generally crowns his
labors with success.
He has been practicing law in Ne
braska so far as Dr. Wiser knows, ever
since he has lived there and has always
been considered a conservative man
ar.d a safe adviser. He has served the
people as county attorney, county
judge and as a member of the state
senate. He was also a delegate to the
republican national convention that
met in Philadelphia and nominated
McKinh-y and Roosevelt. Recently he
has been fa-'orably mentioned as a
candidate for congress to succeed Con
gressman Elmer Jacob liurkett of the
First district, who was recently elect
ed United States senator.
Judge Tucker is a. healthy, vigorous
man. a little past middle life, having
a wife and family of grown children.
He also lias some property interests in
California rnd has passed several win
ters there partly for pleasure and part
ly to look after his holdings.
As was stated in The Republican
yesterday the resignation of Judge
George R. Davis, whom Judge Tucker
was appointed to succeed, was submit
ted to be effective on April 1. It is
therefore thought that Judge Tucker
wlil not enter upon his duties until
that time and that the purpose of the;
president in nominating him at this
time was to dispose of all the Arizona
business at once, it having been nec
essary to appoint a successor to Gov

ENOUGH TO DAMN,. HOCH
Says the Coroner Conducting the In
quest on His Wife's Remains.
Chicago, Feb. 11. "We already have
sufficient evidence on which to hold
Hoch to the grand jury," was the pos
itive statement made by Coroner Hoff
The coroner intimated that he at
tached the most importance to the final
report on analysis , of the internal or
gans of Marie Walcker Hoch. An
analysis has been conducted by Prof.
Haines, of the University of Chicago,
by Dr .Reese, who attended Mrs.
Walcker Hoch, and by Dr. Lewke, the
coroner's physician. The analysis thus
far has established that arsenic was
found in the victim's stomach, but
whether this was the direct cause of
death cannot be established until the
entire examination of the other organs
has been completed.
Coroner Hoffman urged upon Prof.
Haynes the desirability of an early re
port, but the professor declared that
the best that could poesitly be clone
was to promise a final report a week
from Monday. Before the report can
be made thorough an examination of
the kidneys, heart and spleen are nec
essary. The postponement of the in
quest until Wednesday is for the pur
pose of giving the police further op
portunity to continue tile investigation
and to procure witnesses.
Speaking of two women in Milwau
kee whom Hoch is alleged to have
married, Hoch today said he was nev
er In Milwaukee in his life and defied
anyone to come from there and iden
According to a special from Ottum
wa. Iowa, photographs have led to the
identification of Hoch as the man who,
on January 5, 1SDS, married Miss Anna
Pratt of that city. The marriage took
place after a few days' acquaintance
and on the day following the man dis
appeared with diamonds, jewels and
money belonging to the woman,
amounting to 800.

Witness Says He Was Not

THE SLOCUM DISASTER
In Consequence the House Passes
Bills With the Idea of Lessening" the
Liability of Repetitions of That
Washington, Feb. 11. The entire
time of the senate today which was not
spent in executive session was given
to the Swayne impeachment trial. Four
witnesses were examined. All of them
were from Pensacola, Florida, and they
were introduced for the purpose of
showing that up to 1900 Judge Swayne
had not acquired a residence in his
district in Florida.
During the proceedings the question
of the right of the house managers to
object to questions put to witnesses
by senators was raised but the presid
ing officer ruled that such objections
might be stated. The precedents quot
ed were to the effect that while the
questions of senators should be ad
mitted counsel could properly object
to the admissibility of the replies
made to them.
FRUIT OF A DISASTER.
The House Amending the Steamboat
Washington, Feb. 11. As an out
growth of the investigation of the Gen
eral Slocum disaster, the house to
day passed a number of bills called up
by Mr. Grosvenor, chairman of the
house committee on merchant marine
and fisheries, amending the laws re
lating to the steamboat inspection ser
vice and making far more rigid pro
visions for the regulation and control
of steam vessels. The amendments
recommended by the department of
commerce and labor were sent to the
house in the form of eight bills. Six
of these were reported favorably by
the committee and five of them were
passed today. Consideration of the bill
providing for the altering of the salary
system for inspectors was prevented by
the objection of Mr. Shirley of Ken
tucky. Except for an effort by Mr. Liver
nash of California to amend the pro
vision relative to the complements of
crews, there "were no controversies on
The bills amending the steamboat in
spection service as they passed the
house provide for an executive com
mittee of a board of supervising in
spectors with power to amend the
rules of steamboat inspection service
in terms between meetings of the full
board, subject to .the approval of the
secretary of commerce and labor, make
compulsory inspection once a year,
whether applied for by masters or
owners or not; exempt vessels out of
commission and make effective in
spectors' condemnation of defective
equipment; give inspectors power to
stop a vessel by revoking her certifi
cate and provide an adequate statu
tory penalty for persons manufactur
ing orselling defective life saving ap
pliances and Ux the liability of term
charterers, officers and directors of a
corporation wilfully or knowingly
guilty of misconduct in agreement of a
They also provide for the repeal of
the existing provision of the law re
quiring supervising inspectors to give
bond. Assistant inspectors are added
to those prohibited from having any
pecuniary interests in vessels and mo
tor vessels of over fifteen tons are
brought under the general penal pro
visions of the statutes. An alternative
of a suspension of license instead of
revocation is provided in case a licens
ed ofiicer shall unreasonably refuse to
serve. Provision is made for an ap
peal in certain cases of revocation and
for injecting fire extinguishing gas in
to holds ps well as steam.
Minor details in a number of in
stances are transferred from the sta
tute to the regulation.
Russians Believe They Are Intended
to MasK Fortifying' Operations.
Mukden, Feb. 11. During the last
few days the movement of large bod
ies of Japanese troops have been ob
served on the Russian right flank,
where the presence of a part of Gen
eral Nogi's army has been established.
The Japanese are energetically forti
fying the villages of Vandzyanopu,
Ystzupao and Malandan, southward of
Sandepas and also the districts of
Toutoilzi, Tszutsahedzi and Huanti on
the right bank of the Hun river.
It is thought that the movement of
the Japanese was intended to distract
attention from the strengthening of
their defensive works.

Several Big Mining' Companies to Be
Hade Into One.
Pisbee, Ariz., Feb. 11. The an
nouncement was made today that the
management of the Calumet and Ari
zona, the Calumet and Pittsburg, the
Lake Superior and Pittsburg, and the
Pittsburg and Duluth Mining compa
nies and the Junction - Development
company had determined upon a con
solidation of these properties.
The capitalization under the re-organization
and consolidation will be
$32,000,000. The companies named have
from the beginning been practically
under the management of the Calumet
and Arizona, being the parent of the
other organizations. This mine has
paid several millions in dividends since
reaching the producing stage a few
years ago and has gathered a surplus
of nearly two and a half millions. Its
smelter is at present turning out at the
rate of 350,000 tons of copper a year.
An increase to double this capacity is
expected during the year. Of the oth
er properties, none are as yet produc-
ing although the L,ake Superior, the
Calumet and Pittsburg and the Pitts- J
burg and Duluth are about ready to
do so, having large ore bodies blocked
out. With their coming in, large ex
penditures will be necessary for enor
mous reduction works and other
equipments. This fact is largely re
sponsible, it is presumed, for the con
solidation that it is announced will be
made. ' '
The final step in this matter. will be
taken during the coming week at a
meeting of the several boards of direc
tors, with the exception of the Junc
tion Development company, which will
have to be reorganized Into a mining
company first. All the mining compa
nies are now ready for the consolida
tion. The present joint capitalization
of the companies aggregates about
$50,000,000. The new capitalization is
thus a reduction. The stocks of the
companies outstanding will be taken
in the stock of the new organization
Issued at ratios of value which will
fully protect all the present holders.
The general feeling here is that the
move is a wise one and will result ad
vantageously to all concerned. The
consolidation will give to Bisbee two of
the largest copper producing compa
nies in the United States, the. new one
and the Copper Queen Consolidated.

Wholesale Ratifications of
A STRAINED SITUATION
The Neglect by the Senate or Sngget.
tions From the President for Ratifi
cation of the Treaties as They Were
Washington. Feb. 11. The senate t -day
ratified the arbitration tr-at.t-
between the United Stairs and ,;:. t
European governments. It rvquirrd
two sessions to reach an asrrn;r:.:.
At the first sesion consideration was
given to a communication from t:
president to Senator Cu!!-m. ehuir; -.a.i
of the foreign affair3 commit!-, in il.
form of a protect against any amri.J
ment being adopted: at the sev..nd vi
sion the treaties were amended ar.d
ratified with only nine Votes ur-iT.-t
the amendments made by the s-r.-Uf
committee on foreign relation. Tr.r
situation in the senate over the arbitra
tion treaties has been strained f..r s-v-eral
weeks. The first protests a.it..-i
the treaties were made by senators :...-.
the southern states who sur-s-.t-.i
amendment, which preclude! the invi
sibility of arbitration of claims asrum;
their states by reason of r-pud!u. 1
bonds. Later it was suggested that a:i
amendment should be ad"pte.l ui.i. L.
changed but one word, thai of
ment" to "treaty" in arik-Ie 2. vi-.i.,:
the article read as follows: l,i -..ch in
dividual case the high entr:n ti:.g j .n
its, before appealing to a immune:. 1
court of arbitration, shall t-oneiu.;
special treaty defining clearly the m.i;
ter in dispute, the scope of th-.- j.er
of the arbitrators and the in-ri..is t. In
fixed for the formation t.f the arb.tr;.l
tribunal and the several stag.-s of tr.e
procedure." The amendment a:.sere4
the purpose of the protests made by
southern senators and in addition t J
that established the niiicile tiii a.-.y
matter in a nature oi treaty with a for
eign government must be consum-uai-ed
by the president, "with the .:;. - -.i
of the senate."
In this form the committee rerrtr-i
the treaties to the senate. The t: cit
ies were considered but no action wjla
taken beyond ariiving at an ar
ment that they would be again tufcea
up today. The first session of the sen
ate today was confined ahm-st entire
ly to the defense by a Iva'.f dozen sen
ators of the senate's right t amt-nJ.
treaties. The president was crtiuiitU
sharply because of his letter dvlarh".j
it to be a step backward t- ratiy
treaties in the form promised by tV.te
senate committee on foreign relations.
No defense of the president's ;xsi
tion was taken until the second ex.-eu-tive
session when Messrs. IWiver.
Fairbanks and Piatt of Oomwaout
argued against the need of !-a.tc. Th-.-y
took the position that there are 1
questions included in the treaties r...- i
could not properly be submitted by
executive agreement to arbitration.
Senator DoMiver said there were s..ie
matters of business that were pre.-.-;:.;
in the senate, but that the treaties did
not enter into the list and if they were
amended in the form proi-osel the
country would have no further Inter
est in them. It was argued that lb--amendment
ought to te directed, if a:v
amendment were necessary at all. to a
bf-tter definition of the class of ;uea
tions to be left to arbitration, rather
than by an amendment which put the
government of tl,e United Stales in th
attitude of agreeing with f..rio na
tions in advance that in certain e.tse
it would make treaties of arbitration.
It was said that the obligation t !-
that was already upon us by reason of
The Hague convention and the oft
repeated statement that it is oar na
tional poiicy to arbitrate. The r.ui:i
cation of these treaties, it was ariui-1
offered to this governmei.t the Wt
chance it was likely to have in thi
generation to do its share toward th
abolition of the barbarisms of war.
After speeches by Senators Piatt Z
Connecticut. Dolliver and Fairbanks, a
motion to adjourn was made on the
ground that there was no rteetl for ha-i-ty
action on treaties. Those who fav
ored the amendment opposed this mo
tion and on roll ca'.I. it was defeased.
A motion was then made to ad j t
the committee's amendment. The v.t
was taken on the' treaty between th
United States and France as the other
treaties are on identical lines. A r.-U
call was again demanded and th
amendment was adopted by a vol- .4
50 to 9. When this amendment wa
adopted it was agreed to so far as th
other treaties were concerned and th
treaties were ratified by viva v
