McConnell i SENATE WILL HAVE A VERY BUST WEEK Rate Bill Will Claim Some More Attention SPANISH FETES RESUMED National Convention Knights of Co lumbus Begins at New Haven, Conn., Today and Lasts Till June 10. The probabilties in the United States Senate this week include consideration of a number of appropriation bills, and conference reports on the statehood ques tion; the railroad rate bill, the subjects of the type of the canal to be constructed across the Isthmus of Panama, and the right of Senator Smoot to retain his seat In the Senate. The week's business will begin with the taking up with the con ference report on the rate bill, and it will hold the favored position until dis posed of. After action on the rate bill preference will be given to appropriation bills, tha naval bill coming first among these, and the District of Columbia bill following It. Of the appropriation conference reports, that on the Indian bill will receive first consideration "With others following when ready to be presented. The sea-level canal bill will hold Us place as the unfinished business, but it will continue to be jostled out of position by other measures enjoying higher privileges under the rules of the Senate. It is now generally conceded that there shall be a vote on this measure before the final adjournment of the session, and with this assurance Senator Kittredge, who has charge of the bill, Is content not to press unduly for its continued consid eration. He will, however, be prepared to proceed with it whenever the way ts clear, and will demand a vote at the earliest practicable moment. Statehood Bill. The conference report on the statehood bill will be the subject of animated dis cussion, but the belief Is quite general that the report on the rate bill will be accepted after comparatively little contro versy. Senator Foraker has already given no tice of opposition to the adoption of the report on the statehood bill, and he will have the support of several senators who stood with him against the union of Arizona and New Mexico when the 1)111 was originally before the Senate. They will make strenuous effort to have the bill returnod to the conferees with in structions to stand for the Senate posi tion confining statehood legislation to the creation of the one state of Okla homa out of Oklahoma and Indian Ter ritory. The question of Senator Smoot's eligi bility will be raised by the presentation of the report of the committee on privi leges and elections, hut It Is not probable that the subject will lie taken up for dis cussion this week. In executive session the Ramos’ case will follow tho Wlckersham case. In the House. The programme for the week In tho House contemplates work on the sundry appropriation hill. There are several mat ters, however, which may Interrupt this plan, and which Injected themselves Into the equation lato Saturday. These are tlie rate hill conference, the statehood conference report, and the Payne bill, making minor changes in the administra tion of the customs laws. The regular order Monday is tho passage or hills under the suspension of the ruler. This means a day of legislation on bills of local character. Bliould the Senate take action on the rate conference re port Monday, the House will follow Tues day, although more than one day may he consumed in this connection. The statehood conference report will he taken up In the House Just as soon ns the Senate accepts It. If the Senate rejects the report, the matter may not he brought up in the House.

Nelson A Miles, who is here on his way to Colo rado, said tonight: “The disclosures about beef and other packing house products now being ex ploited are no news to me. I knew It seven years ago. I told what I knew then. Had the matter been taken up at that time, thousands of lives would have been saved. The adulteration of food products Is the colossal crime of the times. “I believe that 3000 United States sol diers lost their lives because of adulter ated, Impure, poisonous meat. There is no way of estimating the number of sol diers whose health wag ruined by eating impure food. I know only of its harvest among the soldiers, and can only guess how many lives It has cost the repub lic. “I have a barrel of testimony subject in the way of affidavits that I collected when I made my Investigation seven years ago. The Investigation committee closed the case and refused to hear 25. 000 witnesses whom I had read. At that time T could have secured the testimony of 100,000 men that the canned beef sold to the army was impure, adulterated and unwholesome. Embalmed Beef. “In my Investigation of 'embaled beef* during the Spanish-American war I found that poisons were being used to preserve meat. My first intimation of the prac tice came to me In reports from com manding officers to that effect that the rations were not Wholesome and were making the soldiers sick. I ordered an in vestigation and learned from the reports brought to me that canned meats had been sold to the army that had been for months in the warehouses of the Balti more and Ohio railroad, and at t'he docks at Liverpool. “This meat had been relabeled and sold to the I’nited States for soldiers* rations. 1 turned the reports over to the War De partment and a whitewashing investiga tion was instituted, and sucessfuliy car ried out. The official report was that a ‘colossal error’ had been made. As a matter of fact it was a colossal fraud, and the persons who perpetrated it and were interested in it. should have been Bent to the penitentiary.” W. L. TILLMAN DEAD.

COMMITS SUICIDE Threw Bomb in Royal Marriage Procession IS FULLY IDENTIFIED King Alfonso Predicts that the Bomb Throwing Incident will be Re peated—Every Possible Pre caution Is Being Taken. N Madrid, June 3.—The capture Saturday night at Torre Jon de Ardos of Manuel Morales, the chief suspect in the bomb outrage against King Alfonso and Queen Victoria, adds another dramatic chap ter to the incidents surrounding the royal wedding. Morales was recognized in the little town of Torre jon de Ardos, mid way between Madrid and Alcala. A guard sought to detain him but Morales, drawing a revolver* shot the guard dead. Then he turned to flee but a number of inhabitants of the town were upon him, and turning the revolver upon himself ho sent a bullet In the region of his heart, expiring a few minutes later. Senor Cuesta, proprietor of the hotel from the balcony of which Morales threw the bomb, viewed the body this morning and completely identified It as that of his recent guest. It was 6 o’clock Saturday evening when Morales, disguised in the garb of a work ing man, entered the station at Torre jon de Ardos. he asked a child who was in charge of t*he office the time the next train would depart for Barcelona. He then sought food In a nearby shop. His Catalonian accent first attracted atten tion to him. It was then noticed that his workman suit was entirely new, and did no correspond in texture to that usually worn by a person of his station in life, his face and manners showing him to be a man of some distinction. Is Revolutionized. A private watchman from a neighboring estate chanced to be present and he noticed t'he facial resemblance of Morales to the descriptions given out of the man seen on the balcony from which the bomb was thrown, particularly the long, thin and deeply seered fare, and the closely croped mustache. He then observed that a finger on the man's left hand, which the stranger was trying to conceal, was badly hurt, and also that there was a small fresh scar on his forehead. The stranger sought to take a road leading Into the country, but the watchman inter cepted him and demanded to know his lndentlty. Morales declined to give this, whereupon a guard arrested him. In stantly Morales drew a revolver from his pocket and tired, the guard falling dead. Morales started up the road but a small group of villagers ahead barred his pas sage. Then turning, he deliberately point ed the weapon to his heart, fired, and pitched forward In the roadway. An examination of the pockets of the dead man showed that they contained »3G in money and a small supply of bread and cheese, hut' there was nothing In them that would give a Clue as to hi* Identity This fact created a doubt that the man was Morales, hut when the gov ernor of Madrid arrived with Cuesta. identification was Immediate and posi tive. Refused Burial. The body was then brought to Madrid. At first there was a desire to bury it at Torre jon dc Ardos, but when this was suggested the villagers indignantly refused to permit the body to repose hi thetr town. Villagers of Torre Jon do Ardos gave a graphic description of the capture and death of Morales. They say lie appeared to be greatly fatigued and fell asleep on a bench at the station. On entering the Inn he called for dinner hut scarcely tnst eil a morsel. The loquacious proprie tress of the inn discussed with him the prevailing topic of the throwing of the bomb at Madrid, declaring it was a hein ous crime. At this the stranger shifted nervously, saying: "Every one has his own ideas, which should be respected. Shortly after this he tried to leave town. The body of Morales was exposed this afternoon for the purpose of allaying pub lic Indignation. Thousands of persons surged before the municipal morgue seek ing to get in line to be admitted to the room where the body lay, but cavalry and Infantry blocked the efforts of the throng which murmured against the assassin. Public feeling was Intense, chiefly because of the great crime of the victim. It is seldom that a bomb ex plosion has such deadly effect, the cas ualtleirin this Instance being twenty-four persons killed, and more than eighty wounded. Final disposition of the body of Mo rales has not been determined upon, but the public demand an Ignomlnous burial. The American envoy to the royal wed ding. Frederick tVhltrldge, and his suite had an opportunity for a brief conversa tion with King Alfonso during the re ception at the palace Saturday night. When the conversation naturally turned to the attempt on the King and Queen. King Alfonso shrugged his shoulders Rnd made the following significant statement, showing how he views the future: The King’s Prediction. “Yes, fortunately It was unsuccessful, 1 but it will come again. It may be any time—perhaps tomorrow or within a month, perhaps within a year—but it will come.” The face of the King wore a look of calm resignation as he gave this forecast of the future. Although he bore him self splendidly throughout the terrible ex perience the courtiers witnessed a trying scene as King Alfonso and Queen Victoria hurried within the castle after the attempt was made to assassinate them. For a moment Alfonso’s nerves were completely unstrung, and turning to Queen Victoria, her dress bespattered with blood, he exclaimed: 'Why did I bring you to this country? It was wrong; you never should have come here.” Then the queen-mother and one of the in fantas calmed the overwrought nerves of the king, tnd the orWnl couple repaired sadly to the nuptial cbr.mb«is. A gala performance was given tonight at the opera, after a remarkable interruption, ft was discovered Saturday night that ore ticket for the perfo mance was missing. This had a suggestV3 meaning, as thn officials had scrupu’ouslv kept track of the destination of every one of then*. Therefore, the entire Issue was canceled and new ones of a different color were given out. The change was the causa of great confusion, but it was considered to be Imperative in order to guard against a possibility of the missing ticket giving access to the opera house of a person who might throw a bomb. The Ameri can envoy and bis party were present. The king and queen were greeted with enthusiasm. Tt was a brilliant spectacle. The opera was “Lucia de Lammermoor.” The churches of Madrid today cele brated masses of thanksgiving; tor the es-1 We Are Always Pioneers of Low Prices And would be pleased to quote you prices at any time, and next Saturday, June the 9th— one day only—we will sel Nellie King Flour for 60 Cents Per Sack Come to See Us.

Barcelona, June 3.—Senor Morales, fath er of the anarchlse who attempted to kill King Alfonso and Queen Victoria, and wrho committed suicide at Torre jon de Ardos Saturday night, was seen in Barce lona today. He is the proprietor of a prosperous factory. He has a strong in dividuality, and is strongly respected. An swering questions of an inspector con cerning his son. he said: *‘I wish to know nothing of this In famous creature formerly bearing my name. I have not considered my son since I drove him from my house, March 1. The reason for his being cast out was purely domestic, and I beg to be excused j from disclosing it. I do not know wheth er he was connected with the attempt on the lives of the king and queen, as I have considered him dead since he was 1 cast out.” Morales’ brother, Facundo, gave these details concerning the dead man: At an early age he was sent to the mercantile centers of Germany and France, where he became an expert in textile production, but his natural bent was chemistry, and he returned home with a library of prominent French au thorities on chemistry. His morose dis position led to family troubles which culminated in his father disowning him. Then Morales translated German chemi cal books for the Kcole Moderne at Bar celona. He lived quietly in a boarding house, and had few acquaintances. He left Barcelona recently saying that he would be gone for a long time. GREEK NAMES Suggested for Race Horses Since Tokalon Won. Prom the New York Press. It amused many educated racegoers on Monday—blue Monday for the talent?—to hear a few shrewd, or lucky, speculators asking for "Tockylon.” The price was the attraction. Some wanted "To-kall on." We Greeks had to smile. There was not a bookmaker In the ring that knew the meaning of the name or its ori gin. It fits the pretty little mare (a 5 year-old, I believe), however. "To Kalon" —"The Beautiful.*’ "Kalon" should rhyme with gallon, and "to" with dough. Some recent visitors in Paris asked for "To-Kalonh”—through their nostrils—and i got 45 to 1. Ecuador was a good horse. The talent pronounced him "E-Q-A-der." Fact! John A.

PASSENGER GIVEN TIME TO MEDITATE IS NOT COMPELLED ACCORDING TO NEW YORK COURT TO RE QUEST TRANSFER AT THE TIME HE PAYS HIS FARE. New York, June 3.—(Special).—The New York Sun says: Following the recent de cision of the court of special sessions, the appellate term of the supreme court held yesterday that the arbitrary rule laid down by the surface railroad companies that a passenger is not entitled to a trans fer unless he applies for it as soon as he pays his fare Is absolutely illegal and in capable of enforcement. Carrying out this decision, the court affirmed a munic ipal court judgment for $50, obtained by Samuel Levine against the Nassau Elec tric Railroad company, for the refusal of a conductor to give Levine a transfer on the ground that he had waited too long to ask for it. The conductor testified that it was for ty minutes after Levine paid his fare that he asked for a transfer. Levine as serted that he asked for it as soon as ho paid his fare, but that the conductor paid no attention to him, and he had to renew his demand some time later. Supreme Justice Clinch, sitting in the appellate term, which hears appeals from devislons in the city and municipal courts, writes the opinion of the appellate court, affirming the Levine judgment. The opin ion reads In part: A railway company may, under the statutes and the terms of its charter, pro vide reasonable regulations for the public convenience, but It would require a vivid Imagination to suppose that the rule of the company as to the granting of trans fers carries out any such lawful purpose. Analyzing the rule, Justice Clinch says t'hat it evidently places upon the passen ger the burden of deciding at the moment he pays his fare whether or not he wishe® a transfer. "This is not,” says Justice Clinch, “such a regulation as would promote the con venience of the public, and the company might as well adopt a rule requiring that \ a passenger should ask for a transfer after 'he had ridden five blocks, as adopt a rule of this character.” It was announced that the company would appeal to the Appellate Division, and from there, If necessary, to the court of appeals. The court of special sessions made a sitnilar ruling some weeks ago in the case of a conductor who was arrested for ejecting from his car a passenger who insisted on a transfer as he got to a crossing.
