SWIFT, - Publisher. < TRADES feffi COUNOL> 1C CONGRESS IN SESSION. In the Senate. After two and a half hours of consid eration the Senate on the 16th passed the bill granting statehood to Arizona and New Mexico. Upon the final pas sage of the bill a roll call developed a unanimous vote of 65 senators in favor of the measure. The conference report on the railroad bill was taken up, but action was postponed. A number of minor bills, including many public build ing measures, were passed. By a vote of 50 to 11 the Senate on the 17th agreed to the conference report on the railroad bill. Before adjourning, the motion to concur in the House amendments to the postal savings bank was made the unfinished business. The Senate on the 18th discussed a mo tion by Senator Bristow to discharge the committee on the judiciary from the fur ther consideration of the resolution pro viding for the election of United States senators by direct vote and a motion by Senator Carter to concur in the House amendment? to the postal savings bank bill. Neither motion was acted on. The resolution authorizing an investigation of the charges made against Senator Lori mer of Illinois in connection with his election was reported favorably from the committee on privileges and elections and was referred to the committee on con tingent expenses. The Senate on the 20th adopted the resolution directing the committee on privileges and elections to investigate the charges of bribery in connection with the election of Senator Lorimer. Senator Carter’s motion to concur in the House amendments to the postal savings bank bill was considered, but not disposed of. Senator Bailey started n filibuster against fbe bill increasing the engineer corps of the armv, Senator Borah de livered an extend*! speech on the w est s attitude toward conservation. After passing the general deficiency appropriation bill, the last of the great supply measures, and the bill to retire Justice Moody, the Senate on the 21st again took up the postal savings bank bill and spent about four hours in dis cussing the motion of Senator Carter to concur in the House bill. The motion was strenuously resisted by Senators Cummins, Bristow-, Bacon and New lands. and supported by Senators Carter and Burton. Inhere w-as great desire on the part of friends of the bill to bring it to a vote but, failing in that effort, an agreement was reached to vote at 5 o’clock on the 22d. The Senate on the 22d passed four im portant general measures. First, the building bill, carrying a total appropria tion of about $24,000,000, was disposed of. Three hours were given to the postal bank measure, on motion to concur in the House amendment, which motion pre vailed. 44 to 25. 'Plie Senate also amend ed and passed the House bills authorizing $20,000,000 worth of certificates of in debtedness to aid the completion of ex isting in ieation reclamation projects and requiring the publication of contri butions made through campaign commit tees in the interest of members of the House of Representatives. In the House The consideration of the deficiency bill bill occupied the House on the 10th. General debate was concluded and it was partly read for amendments. Mr. Humphrey of Washington spoke upon combinations by foreign steamship lines for the purpose of keeping up rates upon goods shipped from ports of the United States. He said the Standard Oil company, the steel corporation and the harvester combine received prefer ential rates which destroyed competition with them. The House concluded its session on the 17th bv adopting anew rule by which a majority of its membership may at any time recall from a committee any bill or resolution referred to it and place the measure upon the calendar for con sideration. Advocates of this new rule claim that it will effectually prevent the pigeon-holing of any proposed legislation which has the approval of a majority of the House. The adoption of the new rule was by a unanimous vote. The de ficiency appropriation bill w-as under con sideration during most of the session of the day. but was not disposed of. The House on the 18th finally disposed of ttie railroad bill and the bill granting statehood to Arizona and New Mexico, only the approval of the President being required to make them laws. Both of these administration measures received a practically unanimous vote. The general deficiency bill, appropriating nearly $6,- 000,000. was also passed. A commission to consider means for the promotion of international peace was provided for by a resolution passed by the House on the 20th. Among many other measures passed were bills provid ing for the retirement of Justice Moody of the United States supreme court on full pay; requiring all ocean-going ves sels leaving ports of the Fuited States and carrying more than fifty passengers to be equipped for wireless telegraphy; and providing for a commission to at tend the centennial anniversary of the republic of Mexico. The House held a night session on the 21st, and passed the arid land reclama tion bill in the form which it had been reported from the committee on public lands. The bill provides for the is suance of certificates of indebtedness to provide a fund of $20,000,000 for the reclamation of arid lauds. Earlier in the session the House agreed to the con ference report on the naval bill, and to a partial rejxirt on the sundry civil bill, sending the latter measure back to con ference for further consideration of Sen ate amendments still in dispute. The substitute offered by the Senate to the House land withdrawal bill also was accepted by the House without amend ment. Purposely blocking a flood of ninth hour legislation that otherwise would have been considered, the House on the 22nd spent the entire day on the Currier bill to permit patentees to sue the gov ernment for unauthorized use of their in ventions. which was finally passed.

DECLARES ~WOMAN CALLED HIM VILE NAMES AND HE KILLED HER WITH MALLET. DETECTIVES WATCHED FOR BOAT. NEW' YORK. Juno 23.—Porter Charl ton. husband of Mrs. Mary Scott Castle Charlton, whose body was found stuffed in a trunk which w-as taken from Lake Como, Italy, recently, w-as arrested as he stepped from the steamship Prinzess Irene in Hoboken today. Charlton at first denied his identity, but after being given the “third degree,” he admitted that he w-as the husband of Mrs. Charlton. Charlton made a signed statement to the Hoboken police, which was a confession that he had slain his wife. Charlton said in his confession that he and his wife had been having supper to gether at the villa on Lake Comb, and that they had engaged in a violent quar rel. Murder Followed Quarrel. Charlton said his wife, who was one of the best women in the world, but had an ungovernable temper, called him some vile names and that finally w r hen he could not stand her abuse any longer he attacked her with a wooden mallet. The young man said that he struck her over the head three times, knocking her unconscious and killing her as far as he knew. Charlton told the police that he then stuck the body of his wife in a trunk and carried it down to the lake, w r here he threw the trunk in the w-ater. Charlton arrived in the steamer Prin zess Irene, w-hich came in today from Genoa and Naples. The police were watching for the arrival of the steamship Deutschland this afternoon as it had been reported that Charlton sailed on that steamer. Some officers, how-ever, > ere sent to watch the docking of the Prinzess Irene. Three of them took up positions on the pier, where they could watch everybody leaving the vessel. Officers Pounce Upon Him. The officers had a description of Charl ton and when they saw a man resem bling him leave the ship they pounced on him nud placed him under arrest. He protested vigorously and seemed to in cline to offer forcibly resistance but the handcuffs w-ere speedily applied to him aud he submitted. Capt. Scott, the brother of Mrs. Charl ton who had come to Hoboken today to aid the Hoboken police in identifying the suspect, was quickly summoned to the pier when Charlton w-as arrested. Capt. Scott took one glance at the prisoner and said the man was Charlton. In the meantime, the patrol wagon had been summoned from the-"station house and the prisoner with the three detectives and Capt. Scott w-as hurried to headquarters, w-here Capt. Hayes put him through the “third degree.” Makes Signed Statement. Within half an hour after his arrest Charlton had signed the following state ment: My wife and 1 lived happily together. She was the best woman in the world to me, but she had an ungovernable temper. So had I. We frequently quarreled over the most trivial matters and her language to me was frequently so foul that I know she did not know- the meaning of It. The night I struck her she had been quarreling with me. She was in the worst temper I had ever seen her in. I told her if she did not cease I would leave her and put a stop to it. She stopped for a little while aud started again. 1 took a mallet which I had used to do household repairs and struck her three times. 1 thought she was dead. I put the body in a trunk In which I also threw the mallet. About 12 that night I brought the trunk to my house and dragged it down to a small pier and threw it over board. I left the following night and went to Como, aud from there to Genoa, where I took the steamer Irene three days later. The room where I killed her was an out door sleeping apartment. PORTER CHARLTON. ..-.Russian Is Guiltless. At the suggestion of an attorney whose services he secured shortly after* his ar rival at the police station, Charlton add ed this postscript to his statement: “I have been informed that C. K. Ispolatoff has been implicated, and I wish to state that this gentleman is ab solutely guiltless. I have no defense to make and don’t wish to.” Charlton was given the “third degree” by Chief of Police Hayes of Hoboken and several detectives. Before the con fession was obtained, it was stated by the police that Charlton became infu riated by the gruelling to which he was being subjected and springing to his feet drew a revolver and tried to shoot Chief Hayes. Charlton was instantly disarmed by the detectives before he could accom plish his purpose and after he had been quieted down the young man, now- a pic ture of abject despair confessed to slay ing his wife Taken Before Recorder. After Charlton’s confession he was taken before Recorder McGovern cud ar raigned. As the recorder finished read ing Charlton's cold-blooded confession the prisoner said in a steady voice: “I beg your honor's pardon, but there is a slight mistake. Where the document reads T have no defense to make and wish to make none’ it should read *Or wish none.' ” The man's tone was that of a careful, clerkly person, anxious to have his man uscript read smoothly. The recorder looked at him in blank surprise. Sweat was rolling down the recorder’s red face, but Charlton was cold as ice outwardly as well as inwardly. He wasn’t even perspiring in the choking atmosphere of the crowded room. The C. K. Ispolatoff, to whom Charlton referred as having been suspected by the Getting Passe.

The Russian established to the satisfaction of the authorities that he knew nothing of the crime beyond what was known to everyone, and re cently he was released. Traveled Under Assumed Name. Charlton traveled under the name of Charles W. Coleman of Omaha, though the name appeared on the passenger list as John Coleman. The accused man was utterly broken in spirit following bis ar rest and it was apparent that he had lost much weight on his flight from the scene of the crime. Charlton denied flatly, when placed under arrest by the detectives, that he was the man wanted and took the of ficers to his cabin to prove that his name was Coleman. He asserted that he lived in Omaha and had never heard of Charl ton or his wife. When asked if he could produce let ters to prove that he had received any money under the name of Coleman the I Italy Will Take Steps | to Extradite Charlton. S NEW YORK.

It was then that Charlton began breaking down for he wavered and almost fell, and the detectives bad to let him sit on the pier to recover himself. Charlton turned white and suffered an att xck of nausea, and the officers carried him to the patrol wagon. Capt.

( Porter Charlton, had occupied a villa on the lake front leased by them some time before. At the time the woman’s body was recovered, Porter Charlton could not be found. The Italian police have insisted that Charlton was alive and have directed their energies to locating the young man. American Consul Caughy on the other hand held to the theory that a double murder had been committed and it was through his representations that the Ital ian authorities engaged divers to make a search of the lake bottom near where the trunk had been submerged. This work was but recently abandoned. Meantime the detectives followed up their own theory and their most recent conclusion was that Charlton was a pas senger upon some steamer which had sailed from Genoa or other Italian port for New York. The only arrest made in Italy in con nection with the case was the detention of Constantine Ispolatoff. a Russian who had made the acquaintance of the Amer ican and his wife. He was examined re peatedly, but satisfied the police that he had not figured in the tragedy, and was released. Father Hurries to Son. WASHINGTON, D. C„ June 23.

SUBMITS REPORTS ON COST OF LIVING. Senate Committee Divided on Political Lines and Claims Funds Were Lacking for Work. WASHINGTON, D. C., June 23. Republicans and Democrats do not agree as to the causes for the great increase in the cost of living between 1900 and 1910. The majority report of the special Sen ate committee which has been investigat ing these questions was submitted to the Senate today by Senator Lodge, chairman of the committee. A meeting was held prior to the presentation of the report and the minority members of the committee protested against the Charac ter of the findings. After a long argument, the minority was authorized to employ an expert to go over the report of the majority and pre pare the minority views for submission to the Senate. The report made by Senator Lodge w r as an exhaustive one, coilipiled from testimony gi 'eu by forty one witnesses, reports received from con sQls and from foreign governments. It contains a large number of tables giving the range of prices over the last decade. The majority charges that its work was restricted by reason of the refusal of the Senate to appropriate the $65,000 asked for by the committee which would have been to employ agents in the field.

Rates Must Be Adjusted. “Wages are adjusted from time to time and securities as they mature will he re funded upon a higher basis.
