Iu his speech to. the coal conferees LIVELY SESSION. Mouse Was So Busy, Members Scarcer Sy Knew Where They Were "At." (Special Correspondence.) Columbus, O., Oct. 3..-Ono of the most exciting sessions of the seventy fifth General Assembly wns held Thursday afternoon and resulted In some sensational changes in the report of tho Code committee. Members Btood in each other's way and tried to drown out each others' voices in their efforts to secure the recognition of the chair and the scene of excite ment on severnl occasions threatened abrupt adjournment. Representative Crafts, of Portage county, chairman of the standing com mittee on finance, precipitated the first row. He moved an amendment to provide that tho treasurers of cities which are county seats shouldbe tho treasurer of the county. The original bill provided that all city treasurers Chnll be elected. The advantage to bo gained by this amendment was, ac cording to the friends of the move ment, to savo tho city at least five hundred dollars per year. Thero was no difference of opinion os to the fact that tho municipal gov ernments need the money, but the point of difference was In tho method to Insure the desired economy. 'Amendments to the Crafts amend ment wcro offered tlmo and again only to bo either cried down or voted down, then reconsidered to admit of more argument nnd again voted or cried down. .Ail legislative decorum was forgotten or neglected and tho speaker had to rap vigorously for or der. He finally was obliged to appeal to tho sergeants at arms to maintain order. Mr. Denraan, of Lucas county, of fered an amendment to provide thnt the city treasurer should bo appoint ed In all cases. Ho argued that the Crafts' amendment would make the (whole hill unconstitutional nnd In this argument he was supported by pome of the strongest members of tho nouse from both sides. He was fre quently Interrupted In his remarks, however, nnd finally hnd to yield the floor without finishing what he hnd intended to say. The amendment offered by Mr, Den man was finally defeated nnd the Crafts amendment as orlglnnlly offer ed wns adopted by n yea nnd nay vote. Then thero wns a quiet after the etorm, but it was momentary for a motlou'cnuie to reconsider which was done, each side trying to out-voto the other, measuring strength by vocal test alone. No human being could lmvo doturmlned the result of tho vote without u voice-meter, but the Speaker declared that the vote to reconsider hud prevailed and declined to order n division after the vote had been announced. The amendment wns again adopted umld a second stormy season. . Tho Cincinnati delegation is up In Rrins against die nctlou of the House President Roosevelt said ho represent ed nelthor operators nor minors, but the general public. Ho said tho ter rible condition of a coal famine Im pending oyer a largo portion of our people caused him to uso personal in fluence to end the fntuatlon which has becomo literally Intolerable. Tho President in closing, said: "In my Judgment the sltuntlon Imperatively requires that you moot upon a com mon plane of tho necessities of the pub lic. With nil tho earnestness there Is In mo, fl ask that there be an im mediate resumption of operations in the coal mines In some such way as will without a day's unnecessary de lay meet the crying needs of the peo ple. I do not invite a discussion of jour representatives and positions, i nppeat to your patriotism, to the spir it that sinks personal considerations nnd makes individual sacrifices for the general good." Mitchell and Baer replied briefly. An audience of nearly 200 newspaper men and "camera fiends" stood out side tho temporary White House wait ing for crumbs of news that dropped from the conference Table. All parties to the coal conference were closely shadowed by a small ar my of newspaper correspondents. It Is believed that a settlement will como out of todny's meeting though it may be delayed some days. in this matter and the members de clare that they will not vote for the bill as long as it is In that shape. Tho friends of the Cincinnati Trac tion compnny took advantage of the storm and slipped through an amend ment which promises to mnke trouble for Democrats other than the ono "roasted" by Mayor Tom L. Johnson at the auditorium meeting Wednesday night. The amendment has the effect of nou-sultlng tho case brought against tho company In Cincinnati and against n number of other street railway com panies In the State. During the session of the commlt teo Representative Williams, of Ham ilton county, succeeded in securing the adoption of an amendment which ap parently has the effect of requiring thnt suits to enjoin tho performance of a contract with a municipal corpo ration must be brought within one year of the beginning of the opera tion of the contract. There was no serious opposition to this proposition until an amendment to the amend ment was offered which provided that tho foregoing should apply to all pend ing cases. The word "cases" was Jumped upon from all corners of the State and It was stricken out of the amendment in the committee, Mr. Williams vainly arguing that tho term "cases" had no effect upon tho suit brought ngnlnst the Cincinnati company This was rc- ject'xl in tho committee nnd the word "contracts" substituted. Before quiet had boon restored Thursday afternoon, Mr. Partington, the Democratic member from Shelby county, moved to nmend tho section In which this provision occurs, so ns to restore the word "cases," Every body was too much excited to pay any attention to what had happened and when the chair called for a vote, tho members cnlled out their "ayes" and "noes" with ns much. Indifference as some of the Important blunders of last winter were enacted. The amend ment was carried before the sleepy Legislators had awoke to what wns going on nnd by thnt tlmo n motion to reconsider had been made nnd lost. Partington was assailed from Dem ocratic nnd Ropubllcnn sides allko. A. well known Democratic lobbyist went at once to Partington's scat and de mnnded: "Partington, do you know thnt this has the effect. of nun-suiting the case agninst tho Cincinnati Trac tion company?" "Yes, sir, I do," replied tho member from Shelby. The rules of Sunday school journal ism and the telegraph company for bid a verbatim record of what follow ed, but when Mayor Johnson renchos Shelby county, it Is a safe proposition that the author of, tho amendment adopted Thursday afternoon will not bo in the audience, After this had subsided, the mem- bers settled down Into-their seats and prepared for ft rest. Mnny of tliom repaired to tho cloak room for tlielr belongings and loft town. BefOro time for adjournment lind arrived there wan scarcely a quorum present, most of the nbHcntccB having taken out going trains for home. There Is llttlo possibility of there being a quorum present today. C. E. OHEAGEIt. A BIG TIME. Galion Turned Out a Great Crowd to Meet Johnson. Gallon, O., Oct. 3.

Tho "Evil Eye" must have been cast upon the Commer cial Hotel for the place seems to have been slated for a scries of misfortunes, the latest of which occurred Thursday night, when James Munson died from an overdose of morphine, which may have been taken with suicidal Intent. Munson, who was 38 years old, came from Apple Creek and registered at the Commercial Hotel, Wednesday night. Thursday he complained of being sick and along about 5 o'clock Thursday evening, induced a friend to go out and purchase morphine for him. Ho took one of the tablets and the frend laid the rest on the table and left. About 0 o'clock he called again at the room to And all tho tablets gone and Munson dying. Physicians were summoned but it was too late. Tfie deceased comes from a good family and his father, Henry Munson, resides In Apple Creek. The deadmant who was formerly a lumbor dealer, and-'at'onc timcrowner of a'saw Tnll!,' was unmarried. Tho friend who was wllh him at the hotel hinted at some private trouble which Muncon had nnd ho may have taken the morphine with sulcldnl Intent. THIs is the second suicide to take place at the Commercial Hotel In as many months, and Mrs. Miller, who was proprietor of the lwtel for a brief period, also committed suicide within thnt time, although at another place. VOTED NO. Houser Explains Position. His City Commissioner Houser wishes the public to know that he voted against the recommendation to approve the contract with the N. O. T. Co. for the lighting of the city for another 10 years. And he also voted against the giving of permission to the Erie Railroad Co. to cross South High st. With a switching track. "I voted against the N. 0. T. contract," he said, "because of the clause making it hold good for 10 years, and because tho company refused to grant my re quest thnt the Olty Hall nnd engine houses be lighted froe. The contract will amount to about $30,000 a year for the company. I voted against tho granting1 of right of way to tho Erie beennbe I believed It to be a case simi lar to that of the present Injunction suits to prevent the 0., A. & G. from operating, under franchises granted by the city for the use of Mill and Pros pect sts. for switching tracks."
