KTcat deal of criticism of Sesretar
Morton was indulged in on both side
of the political aisle, but. as on SatUt
day. no one arose to his defense. A
last Mr. Pearson, of North Caroltm
arose and asked If there was not som
member. Democrat, Populist or Reput
lican, who would raise a; voice in his dc
fense. He was Rreetad with a chorus c
"noes" from allsides of the house.
Tho omission in the bill of a provls
ion for a oblef clerk of the bureau c
animal lndustcy at a salary of $2,004
tuhieh was mode upon the secretary'

that the secretary wanted to leglslat
out of office P. P. Lysle, a free alive
Democrat from Missouri, the preset
incumbent, who was appointed on th
recommendation of the Missouri eer

Senator Davis Deliver* an Eloqnei
SpeMb In Httpport of ft In ffie Ncuatr.
WASHINGTON. D. C., Fob. 17.-Tli
speech of Senator Davis, of Mlrmesoti
supporting the resolution of which h
Is the author, enunciating the policy <
the United States on the Monroe dcx
trine, vu the event of to-day In th
senate. There was added Interest an
significance in Mr. Davis' utterance e
his resolution voioed the sentiments <
a majority of the senate committee o
foreign relations, of which he is a men
ber. The public interest in the ?ubje<
was evidenced by crowded galleriei
the attendance being greater than i
my time sine? the vote on the ailvt
bond bill.
Mr. Davis spoke for ?wo hours, an
was accorded close attention through
out. The language was temperate an
conservative, and was not the radlca
utterance some had anticipated. M
Davis spoke with gratification of tli
reports coming from across the Atlar
tlo that a settlement of the Venezuela
trouble was likely to be effected, y<
the senator declared with emphasl
that the American people would new
endon?t? a settlement based on concej
stons of any feature of the Monroe do<
trine. While minimizing the posslbll!
ties of war. the senator Raid that
firm and explicit announcement of 01
policy to resist European encroach
ments would give the surest guarant
of peace.
Mr. Davtn* Hprcch.
"It is a matter of common observn
tlon," said Mr. Davis In beginnlm
that each year our foreign relation
Increase in difficulty, complexity an
Importance. This results from th
iCT-owth of our nation and to the ier
dency of the times to bring togethf
nations In social and commercial Intei
course." It wan this tendency, sal
the senator, which explained the fa<
that the United States was Invojved I
more difficulties with Ureal Urital
than with all othor countries combine*
He was glad to know, however, thr
th> last month had brought sow
amelioration of the Immediate dlff!
culty to which the attention of th
country had been given. If these ne<
conditions were founded on the Moure
doctrine than they would receive tli
warmest approval nf th<- Amrrloan pec
pie, but if mey invoked any concenslo
of the principles laid down by Pre?;
dent Monroe, then the peopl" of th!
country would visit upon sueh con
cession their condemnation and dlsuj
provai.
Mr. Davis said that ns be und^rstoo
the Monroe doctrlm* It wnn a p. arsci
tlon by the United States that It won I
regard as an infringement any ntterr.j
by an European power tr* take or ac
qulr?? any ww or mlimionn) t-nl?"i
on the American continent, or an
tidnnds adjacent thereto. or. any rlgli
of sovereignty or dominion In th?- yam
and that such Infringement will I
deemed danirerous to the pence n?
safety of the United Btates
The i?**nator reviewed ?t Ion ft It (I
condition existing In Kurop?* ut tu<- tin,
of the enunciation of the Monroe doi
trine. Iir- did not view the course <
the Tlrltlnh statesman Canning, v.h
favored tho doctrine, nu Inspired !
love for thin country. It wan a n."
In behalf of Brl tilth trade. th*-ri beglr
nlng to expand th?* world over.
Wlint It .Itrniu.
Speaking of the criticism that peixl
lng resolutions contemplated a pr<
tectornte over flout h American cour
tries, Mr. L?avl? said It would hear i
ouch oonxtructlon. nor would It l?rln
about such results. It tuiggented i,
guardlannblp over southern oountri'-;
None of them won relieved from tf
chastisement of war by a foreign eoui
try, the only condition being that let
rltorlal extension shall not result fror
Huch war. There was nothing new <
novel in tho spirit of this doctrine, pr
eeeded the senator. It WaM recognlue
and enforced by Kuropcuu govern
merits, and Turkey offered a mark*
IriMtance of the nuituul agreement I
i-Train from territorial extension In tb
Ottoman empire.
Mr. Davis referred to the statemer
of Lord Hailaburjr that the Monro
doctrine is not based on any cannon
of international law, and tho senator
Insisted that tho right resided In any
nation to interfere In the affairs of an?
other statu when conditions arose duna
serous to Its peaco ami safetv. This /
was a recognixed principle of international
law. upheld by eminent English
authorities from whom tho senator
quoted.
[> Taking up the islands of Cuba and f
lx Hawaii. Mr. Davis showed the consist- v
ent and persistent course of the United
States in applying the spirit nf tho
1 doctrine to those inlands. It had been C
invoked In the caso of Cuba whenever
England or France had sought a foothold
there.
_ The rest of the day was given to the ,
1 military academy appropriation which J
*f??a unrinr illHcutidhm when tho donate
adjourned.
,r The - ?position of Mr. Vilas to In- i
crease the credit appointments bv two
l" from each state, an aggregate of IK),
it, brought out much debate, tho prevailing
sentiment being: favorable to the
increase.
When the military academy approprlatjon
bill was taken up, Mr. Vilas.
(Dem., Wis.), offered an amendment
Increasing the number of cadet appointments
by itwo at large from each
state, an aggregate of nlnoty. This
0 was supported by Mr. Vilas, Mr. Ilawd
ley. Mr Klklns and Mr. Troetor.
. Mr.'Gordon, (Dom., Ga.), spoke elo- ,
quently of one need of a "citizen solV
dlery," and In this connection urged
? that the recent rumbles of war should
.. warn the country 10 be ready. Tho <
people are hopJng and praying for
1 pence between this country and Groat
u Britain, but this would be more cf- 1
o feotlve If It were backed by power. I
In view of General Gordon's service
during- t^e civil war, his reference to
'' his military training, "not In an acad>f
emy, but In the stern experience of the
Held." attracted marked attention. He
spoke of -the great conflict, the bloodlest
In history and of the happy obllt f
eratlon of Its tierce animosities. As
j. a matter of safety against foreign con- 1
11 lets and domestic violence this proposed
enlargement of the trained miln
l&ary force of the'country met with the
e senator'* heaTty approval.
>r The amendment vram not disposed of I
. when at 5:35 p. m. the senate adjourned

formation and to consider and recoml"
mend legislation to mcert the problems
n presented by labor, agriculture and
It capital, haa been reported to the house. ,
* Accompanying the bill Is a long report
!- which enys among other things that
0 the commission la designed also to ben
eflt the business men. The disturbed <
1 condition of affairs haa entailed great t
8 loss upon the business community. ,
I- The loss of $34,000,000 In six years to
~ the employers of labor as shown in 1
( tables presented by the report. Is, It i
says, but a fractional part of that sus- .
10 talned by transporters, merchants and
. others engaged In business pursuits. 1
. Business men have and will continue 1
a to suffer great depressions in value <
n and increasing looses unless a better

need and business Interests require, the I
roport concludes, a Just and more satis- }
factors' settlement of differcnoes with .
those with whom they deal and upon

business must depend. The better

tOO girls and women frenzied with
fright, fighting for life as though the

that consumed thousands of dolars'

crowding out the entrance. Folowlng-them
wtu a mass of smoko with

Aken to the hospital or to their homes. 1
Of the 350 girls and women in the i

It was Juat thirty minutes before cloang

preparing to leave when the whistle t

Tlie Fire Start*.
It struck a pile of oily rags and in an 1
instant the girl was enveloped in
names. With her clothes and hair .
jurnlng she rushed to the window and (1
n an Instant the room became a strug- c
?linK, shrieking mass of humanity, fill- j|
ng the windows, the fire escapes and

size.
With rare presnce of mind, rnllcemnn
Parrel J, who was on the street, seeing

wo or three forms camo Hying down
'rom the fifth and sixth stories, and
jouncing from the awning, fell to the

Llllle Krelger, over whose machine
he llr?? started, was one of these. She
Struck the awning, fell on her back and
jounced to her hands and knees on the
Talk. She got up and staggered about
until the people helped her to her foot '

with mispiolon to say the least.

"WANTED?Men, able-bodied, 1.000

o'clock Tuesday morning. Come ready

The entrance to the Jail la at the obrncr
of Couvt <a.nd Sycamore streets. The
natural inference la tihat this is on ln,

BOY BANDITS.
Dime Novel Heading started Them on
Their Career.
HUDSON, Mass., Feb. 17.?Three
young men of this town, after going to
the dime-novel school for several years,
decided that they were advanced sufficiently
to start in the profession. The
leader of the three. Jack Drake, went
with a Sunday school picnic to Fort
Meadow and, wandering through the
thick woods, found a suitable "robbers'
cave." It was In the depths of the
woods, shielded by thickets?a hug*:.
Jutting slab of rock, with bushes and
trt*es so grown that the cave under the
rock was completely hidden.
Jack nnd young Nadreau and Donovan.
the "Boy Scourge." tolled at this
cave until they had it fitted for use, 1
?..mm,.cnririnfpr. and then they began
their career. They robbed country
stores far and wide, and bore away
the plunder to the cave In the woods.
They spent a good part of the cash '
they stole In buying dime novels. And
when they were not out thieving or
keeping up appearances nt home, they
were lying around a Are. built near the
entrance to the cave, and drinking In
the wondrous adventures of bandits and
road agents and city gangs of des- '
peradoes. <
Jack was caught the night of Eiecember
30, as be was breaking Into JJrlgham's
store, at ast Mairlboro. His
pals got aw?ay and have not been captured.
TJiey called <hcir lender "Jack
the Hold." He broke down, said he
had stolen northing ami woo goi-ng to
Itefrin hJs career when they captured
him. He told about the cave, and the
officers cleaned It out. T?hey found several
hundred dollaira worth of general
storos and 450 dime novels.
Jack Is In the East Cambridge Jail, i
and his stepmother is praying with him
every day. He Is very free In his expression
of disgust with the dime novels.
He says they misrepresent the
punishment side of crime, and that the
jails they tell about are not at all like
the Jail he llnds himself caged In.

CHICAGO, Fob. 17.?A local paper

died a-bornlnV It was to have begun
to-day at the Illinois Medical College,
and promised to furnish the greatest 1
sensation which the professions of
medicine and surgery In ChlcAgo have i
known for years. But the great public
attention It atractod. even before Its i
commencement. wus too much for tlie I
conservative physicians Identified with
the college, and the management of file
Institution, In consequence, recently decided
not to allow the clinic to begin. ;
This was to have been the first public ,
hypnotic clinic In the United States '
conducted by a medical school, it was
to have bevn free to the public, and
would have taken nn equal footing with I
the other free clinics run by the Illinois
medical school., As nn adjunct to the
practice of medicine, hypnotism has
boon used for some time abroad. In ;
France, Germany, Austria, Holland 1
and Sweden special hospitals an 1 instl- 5
tut Ions have been established which '
nre devoted exclusively to the treat- <
ment of disease by hypnotic augK?\n
