PUCES THEY R!AY RECEIVE
Mr. Dingley to Head Ways and
Means- Committee.
HILLIKEN WILL BE FAVORED

Heed Henderson of Iowa for the
Appropriation's Others in Line.
There will at the assembling ot the Fifty-fourth
Congress bo an unusually large
number of surprises and disappointments
In the matterof commit tec makeups. Spec
ulation and conjecture will continue until
the lists are read from before the Speaker's
desk.
The arrival of Mr. Ueed will uot In the
least simplify the problem or furnish any
clues as to selections. At" the Kline time
there is no doubt but that eory man has
thus far in adnnce been given his assign
ment. With two or three possible exceptions. It
is probable that a prediction as to the
chairmen chosen would be many rods wide
ot the mark. One of those helmed to be
certain of preferment is Mr. Dingley of
Maine, to head the Ways and Means Com
mittee. FIGHT OP HIS LIFE.
The supposition has heretofore prevailed
that cither Mr. Dalzcll of Pennsylvania ur
Mr. Payne of New York would be made
-chairman of this cununlttec, but such an
impression is believed to be erroneous. Mr.
Dingley was chairman of tbe Committee on
Merchant Marine and Fisheries in the
Fifty-first Congress, the ranking Repub
lication the Ways and MeansCommlttee.and
Ju direct line of promotion, but for his
loyalty to Mr. Keed at a trying, If'nol
'critical, period In that gentleman's for
tunes. When the Democrats came into control
of the House Mr. Reed assumed the leader
ship of the. minority on the floor, lie had
the fight ot his life before him. lie must
vindicate his anions as Speaker, make buch
a record tor his party as would again bring
ttem into power and at the same lime
lay the foundation for the Presidential
nomination.
With this responsibility thrust upon him
it became of the utmost importance. In
faeti absuluttly necessary, that lie should
have m nibcrship upon the Wa sand Means
Committee, then preparing to substitute a'
new tariff act for the McKlnlcy bill. In
order that he might constantly Interpose
such objections and make suih suggestions
as would place the minority before the
country I" the best possible light. But Mr.
Crisp did not see fit to give Mr. Iteed
this" committee assignment.
Mr. Dlnglej's loyalty and generosity were
then equal to Ihe occasion. lie voluntarily
relinquished his membership and precedence
on the committee In favor of Mr. Reed.
Mr. DJngley went to the Committee on Ap
propriations and there informed hard and
creditable work, but It is belleed to now
be a certainty that he will be transferred
to his old committee and made itb chair
man. In this connection it has lecn urged
that Mr. Boutelle is slated for theCommlttee
on Natal Affairs, and Mr. Mllllken Pub
lic Buildings and Grounds, and It would
be out of all pn portion for the Slate of
Maine to have the Speaker nnd the three
committee chairmanships. But it must
be remembered that such was the precise
condition in the Fifty-first Congress. The
four members from the extreme Northeast
ern State occupied the Speaker's chair
and headed three important committees.
ONLY TWO FROM MAINE.
But unless all signs and predictions mfall
Maine will liave but two chairmen in the
next Congress. These will do Mrt Blng-ley,-Wa)8iindMeans,andMr
Mllllken, Pub
lic Buildings and Grounds. Mr. Boutelle
will probably drop into very shallow
water with something resembling the cus
tomary dull thud. It was an open secret
that Mr. Boutelle was in perpetual revolt
against Mr. lt ed's leadership In tiie last
Congress. Since adjournment he has to all
intents nnd purposes declared himself In
favor of McKinle as the nest Republican
nominee for the Presidency. It is an an
cient anil homrly', but nevcrllieliss true,
proverb that chickens will come home to
roost, and Mr. Boutelle's fowls arc cx
pectcdi to be no exception.
With Mr, Uoutcile persona nou grata, and
without any reference to the fact that
Mr. DoHiver is next iu line of succession,
it Is genernlfy expected that the chairman
ship vlll be given the popular and eloquent
young Iowan.
Another selection regarded as a cer
tainty Is that of Col. David B- Henderson
of Iowa as chairman of the Committee on
Appropriations, lie is undoubtedly en
titled to the place, having had a dozen
years' experience Jn Congress, bleng thorr
oughly familiar with the work of the
committee and possessing unusual ability.
He is also the ranking member. His chief
and perhaps only opponent is Mr. Cannon
of Illinois, who was chairman of the com
mittee In Hie Fifty-first Congress, but
failed of re-election, ami was consequent
ly regarded as a new member in the last
Congress.
But throwing aside all computations
based on equity and priority It is knonn
that the relations between Mr. P.ecd and
Mr. Cannon were so badlj- strained during
the last session as not now to be amenable
to arnica or soldering. For this reason,
in addition to many others, it is accepted
as a foregone conclusion that Col. Hen
derson will be clialrman of the committee.
It has always been customary for the
Speaker to name the chairmen of the two
leading, committees as his associates upon
Uie Committee on Rules. That committee
will therefore be composed of Messrs.
Reed. Dingley, and Henderson, Republicans,
and Messrs. CrlspandCalchlngs, Democrats.
MOST DESIRABLE COMMITTEE.
The chairmanship of the Committee on
Rivers and Harbors" is being discussed
a good deal by the members as they drop
In at headquarters. Tbe legislation that
comes befool, this committee Js so im
portant to so many sections of the country
that In some respects It is the most desirable
committee to serve on.
Mr.BIngcr Hermann of Oregon hassered
on this committee for many years, and
the interests of his district are largely in
volved In the bills that are prepared by that
body Gen. Grosvenor. of Ohio, is also
an old member .of .the committee, having'
outranked Mr. Hermann In the Fifty-rirst
Congress- It Is understood that ho desires
very much to be made chairman of the next
committee. Both these geutlcmen are
understood to be on their way to Washing
ton to find but howthc land lies.
It Is said that Representative Aldrich. ot
Illinois, hits given out a quiet tip that lie
will apply for membership on the committee
of Interstate and foreign commerce, held
by Jklr. Dcborow during the last session.
This committee had charge of theNlcaragua
canal project. Mr. Aldrich says he Is not
seeking the chairmanship of the District
of Columbia committee", but there ha o been
a few very clever strokes made for him in
that direction. A membership on the inter
state commerce committee .would not con
flict with the chairmanship of the District
committee. .
TRIED TO RILL THE JUDGE
Gonvict Going to Prison Attacks the
Man That Sentenced Him.
Though Handcuffed to Another Felon
lie Made ii Desperate Assault Will
Now Get Twenty Years.
Ilelvldere, N. J., Nov. 22. On November
12 Grant Keller, of Easton, pleaded guilty
in the Warren county court hero of horse
stealing, nnd Jndgo Morrow sentenced liliu
to two years inStatcprlsouathard labor.
Keller, learning that tho sheriff had ar
ranged to take lilm to Trenton today, made
an effort to break Jail lasuiight. He was
again brought before the court this morn
ing and hts sentence was Increased to five
years.
This so incensed Keller that he became
violent and with clenched fists made a
move toward the Judge, calling him a vile
name. Keller was lustily removed by the
sheriff and at 1 p. in., was taken to thea
lepot, hand-cuffed to Edward Wcru, col-'
ored, who was also sentenced to State
prison for two years Tor highway robbery.
Judge Morrow was also at the station. In
tending to take the same train. Ashe was
stepping on the car Keller, In the custody of
the sheriff, was brought up behind. Keller,
still in a rage, made a dfsiter.ite break.
He kicked the judge and at the same time
by n superhuman effort attempted to
force him under the wheels of the starting
train.
The sheriff and passengers succeeded In
rescuing the Judge, who ordered the des
perado returned to the county Jail and
he will now bo given twenty years.
Keller was in a frightful rage at being
defeated In his terrible purpose, and vows
that he will tako the lire ot the Judge If
he himself lives to regain his liberty.

(Special to Tho Times.)
Richmond, Va., Nov. ,22. In an inter
view tonight Governor O'Ferrall, in ex
planatlon of his action in ordering City
Sergeant Epps to hold the Lunenburg pns
oners in this city, said thathis action was

pose to Interfere with the Judiciary de
partment, as intimated by the supreme
court, but that he wished to avoid any
disturbance In the State and maintain the
peace, without having to resort to the
military.
City Sergeant Epps wascarrled loLunen

tempt of court made by Judge Orgaln, of

The Virginia authorities are In earnest
In tbe matter of pushing the prosecution
of Jack Heath, sr.. Jack Heath, Jr., James
DavW, Jack Walsh, George Heath, Ed
ward Heath and La Fontaiue. Indicted for
maintaining a gambling resort on the Vir
ginia side of the Potomac Just above the
Aqueduct Bridge, and yesterday, acting on
requisitions Jrom tbe. governor of Vir
ginia, the Washington Jaw officers ar
rested Jack Heath, sr., and Bam Davis.
The officers of the First precinct late last
night also brought In Jack Walsh, one of
the men over whose "heads hangs a Vir
ginia indictment. Walsh was arrested at
his home and taken ht of bed. He was
later, however, released. It Is understood,
upon promise to appear In court.
SEARCHING FOR TIIE OTHERS.
Strenuous efforts were made to appre
hend the other parties under Indictment
and for whom the governor of Virginia
recently Issued requisition papers. Tbe
usual haunts of the men wanted were
visited but Heath and Davis were the only
men landed, though it Is but the question
of a few dajs when all the others will
be taken Into custody. .'
Virginia will make no example of these
men In the belief that it will be the easiest
way to reclaim Alexandria county from
the blight of gambling, which has so long
distressed Washington and rcflccled dis
credit on tbe Old Dominion.
Heath, sr., and Davis will be taken to
the. police court today,' where the requi
sition papers will be presented, and the men
will be turned over formally to the Virginia
authorities, who will deal out to them Jus
tice to the full extent' of the law. They
will not be allowed to escape with a fine.
If the governors avowed Intentions are
fulfilled, but will be made to do time in
the orthodox way.
It is believed that the manner In which
these offenders will be dealt with will
have a salutary effect as a deterrent to
others who are wooing Fortune in vio
lation of the law of Virginia.
WILL FIQBT EVERY STEP.
The fact that Jack Heath, sr., has given
bond for his appearance at Alexandria,
will .be pleaded today "as an argument
for his release fronfarret, and whether
this point will be sustained by the court
cannot lie. foretold.
Harry lliley was arrested at 2 o'clock
this morning and held for the Virginia
authorities.
Tiie three Heath boys'and rontain are
stlllat large, but the .Virginia officers
have carte' blanche In the matter of pur
suit and will travel as far as necessary
to land them. "
The officers think that it will be im
possible for them to escape. They will
be tracked from city to.'city, and if need
be from country to country, till they are
cauglit and brought back to Alexandria,
where they will stand trial for the offense
for which they hare, been indicted.

Remarkable Scene at the Strike

IN THE ARMS OF A CROWD

Jnll Trillin plial.Mnrch tot lieDepot.
Meeting With Ex-Gosernor Wnlte.
Reception at Buttery D.
Chicago. Nov. 22. Eugene V. Debs, for
five minutes this afternoon, was literally
"in the hands of his friends." It was
Just utter the arrival of the train load of
enthusiastic admirers of this great strike
leader at tho little town of Woodstock,
where he again breathed the air of free
dom forthefirst timcin halt a year. They
had marched from the railroad depot to
tiie Jail, and Debs stood upon the steps
awaiting them.
There was preliminary thunder of hurra lis
and then the storm of bottled-up admiration
broke and there was a scene which lias
hardly cer been duplicated in tho annals
of labor affairs. Without gliing him
a chance to speak, the crowd rushed upon
their hero, dragged him from the steps
and in a few moments had lilm high in
the air.
PASSED FROM HAND TO HAND.
Those who had the good fortune to reach
him flr6t were allowed tho priiilege of
holding him and he was passed from hand
to hand while all the while others strug
gled to get near him.
A casual spectator might have taken the
whole scene for one of the mighty battles
between rival football teams, aud have
imagined that Debs had the loll. Mean
while the crowd kept up a constant calling
nnd the band played on, selecting as their
theme, "See, the Conquering Hero Comes."
Debs took It all in the good-natured spirit
In which It was meant, and when he was
put down began a hand-shaking soiree
that lasted untllthe train was nearly ready
to start.
A luncheon had been provided for bis
friends by hlni, but everybody wa so busy
with congratulations that few had. i chance
to taste the sandwiches, which constituted
tiie menu.
The train arrived at Woodstock at r.
o'clock and was filled with labor dile
gates and personal friends otlMr. Debs
about 500 of them In all. They occupied
six cars. The Building Tradef Associa
tion, the Trades and Labor Assembly, and
other local associations were represented,
though there were many in tliesi- us-ocia-tions
who failed to lend their countenance
to the demonstration. The only one of
the other eight directors of the American
Railway Union who were present was
William Burns, of Chicago.
MEETING WITH GOV. WAITE.
Among those who went to Woodstock
was Gov. Walte, of Colorado. He came
all the way from Denver to be present.
There was a notable scene when he and
Debs ruee"TJebs,.threw his arms around
the aged execnttve's neck, and said In a
tremulous voice: "God bless you, my
boy." The governor seemed equally over
come, jic luaue some commonplace re
mark about being glad to see him again,
and then the two men fell to chatting of
the subjects nearest the hearp- of both.
The march to the train was like the
triumphal entry of a ruler, fortunate in
war, rather than Ihe welcome to a roan
found guilty In the eyes of the law The
music was Ihe MariellnUe, aud the streets
were black and while with hundreds of
citizens of McUenry county, standing ankle
deep in the mow to catch a glimpse of
ii;e central iigure ot tue uay.
Fully half or the spectators were women,
and one of them brought flower aud threw
them at the cause of all the excitement.
Coimng back to Chicago on tbotrHln Debs
was obliged to walk twice through all the
cars, and shake hands with every occupant.
When the delegation readied Chicago
another crowd was waiting at the North
w estern depot, and the scene at Woodstock
was duplicated in milder colors. From the
depot the line of march was taken up to
Battery "D," and although a miserable
drizzle was dropplug, the streets were
filledwwlUi spectators who Joined the
marchers.
An Immense assembly was present In the
armory of Battery D tonight at the recep
tion given In honor of Debs. The A. R. U.
leader's appearance was the signal for a
storm of applause which lasted several
minutes. Debs spoks for hair an hour, the
principal points in his speech being as
follows:
The title ot Mr. Debs' cpeech was "Lib
erty." After terming the Imprisonment
of himself and colleagues a "flagrant
violation of the Constitution and the total
abrogation ot law and the usurpation of
Judicial and desputlo power," the speaker
had this to say ot trial by Jury tor con
spiracy: "At the Instigation of railroad corpora
tions. I was indicted for "conspiracy.
That trial terminated abruptly on ac
count of a sick Juror, and It wns currently
reported that the Incident was mciely a
pretext to abaudon the trial. Whether true
or not. I do know that I have been de
nied a trial, and here and now I demnud
a hearing of my case.
"If the counsel for tho government, alias
the railroads, have been correctly quoted,
the case against me and my colleagues is
'not to be pressed.' as they 'do not wish
to appear In the light ot persecuting the
defendants." I repel with scorn their
professed mercy. I have had time for
meditation, and I have no hesitancy la
declaring that under tbe same circum
stances I would pursue precisely the same
policy. I havo neither apology nor re
grets." Mr. Debs here came to the, subject of
the evening, and he continued:
PERSONAL LIBERT.' THE TOEME.
"The theme is personal liberty; some
thing that Americans have beenaccustomed
to eulogize since the foundation of the
republic, and multiplied thousands of them
continue In the habit to this day because
they do not recognize the truth that In the
Imprisonment of one man in defiance of
all constitutional guarantees the liber
ties of all are Invaded and placed in peril.
The spenker then reverted to the incar
ceration of tiie A. R. V., men at Wood
stock as a nibtle invasion of Hie liberties
of the American peoplejiy the courts, sus
tained by on administration equally dead
to the guarautccs of the Constitution. He
continued: -
"It the A. R. TJ. has erred it has been on
theBido of sympathy, mercy, and humanity
zeal In a great cause, and devotion to the
spirit ot brotherhood which kuowsno arti
ficial boundrles.
"In the great battle ot labor between the
American Railway Union and the cor
porations banded together under the name
of the General Managers Association vic
tory would have perched upon the stand
ards of labor If the battle had been left
to these contending forces and this state
ment suggests the inquiry, what other re
sources had the corporations aside from
their money and the strength which their
federation conferred?

PANIC-STRICKEN GIRLS.
The fire started at 9:15 o'clock on tfc
fourth floor ot the seven-story building. In
the garter factory of Stem A Co., where
many girls were at work. They ran
screaming to the windows on the Van
Huron street side of the building.
All was excitement and confusion in a
moment anil the rapidlj-lncreasiiig crowd
of spectators stood gazmg upward at what
eerned the impending dGom of i-cores of
working girls. Engines, hcrac-carts. nnd
ladders came to the rescue with brave
firemen, who In a twinkling had scrambled
up the -fire escapes or put the extension
ladders in position to bring the panic
stricken people to the ground.
The frantic girls were dct"'rm!nM, In
their half-crazed mental condition, to
hurl themselves to the stone flagging, but
were partly restrained by the shouts ot
the citizens on tbe street nnd the quick
work of the firemen. One small extension
ladder was run up under wiiere the girls
were standing In fear ota double death.
A fireman mounted It, but when his fet
touched the rungs of the second section
either bis weight or soma clef"ci.t iu the
ladder caused it to slip back to its original
position, bringing its top four or fire feet
below the sill of the rourth storv window.
KITT1K LANHGRAF'3 FATAL LEAP.
Either crowded from behind or frenzied
by-fear, Nellie Turner and Kittle Landgrot
made a wild attempt to lower themselves
so that they could touch the top round
ot the ladder. Iu doing this the foolhardy
ones slipped and fell headlong to the pave
ment. Capt. Hcrraauson tried to grasp the dress
of Kittle Laudgraf as her lxdy flew pasi
him, but he failed, aud she struck the side
walk with a fkkeulng sound in sight ot
thousands. A few seconds elapsed, and ths
same spot upon which Miss Landgraf'i
body bad struck, was covered with ths
unconscious form of Nellie Turner, who
bad taken the terrible plunge in the effort
to save herself.
She was saved from death, however, by
being momentarily held by three firemen
In her descent, thus breaking the force ot
her fall. Three other girls, who bad
more presence ot mind, succeeded In reach i
lng the ladder by dropping from the win.
dow sill.
The flames had now taken possession ot
the four upper stories ot the building, and
at a wiudow stood Olga Kel'cr and Harry
O'Neill, hemmed In on three sides b Name
and smoke. The frightened girl stood on
the narrow window ledge holding to tb
sash with one hand. She was ahnoso
suffocated by smoke, and had braced her
self as It to make the leap of a forlorn hope.
AT THE RISK OF HIS LIFE.
"Don't Jump, climb down to me,"
shouted Captain Hermanson from Ihs perch
on the upper part of the laddi-r, but tho
girl, frantic from terror, did not hear
his voice. She was seen to drop and
fortunately her body came within reach
ing distance ot the captaLi. He seized
one of her ankles as l.er body turned In tho
ah: and the heroics act almost threw him
from the swaying ladder.
Before he was forced to loosen his hold
or be carried down himself, two firemen
below him seized the girl and carried
hir down the ladder amid the plaudits of
thousands, who were watchlngevery tnova
in the tragic scene.
O'Neill, who was still at the window anil
engaged in the brave task of helping
all the imprisoned girls to escape to the
best of bis ability, was the'last one to be
rescued. When he tried to crawl from
window to ladder, he slipped and fell,
but his fall was broken by the grasping
bands ot firemen on the Iadder.ud ho
