Accompanied by her brother and sis ter-in-law, and in the custody of De tective Harvey Davis, Mrs. Scheck left tho city Jail yesterday afternoon In a carriage ■ and drove to the cemetery. The woman did not alight from the carriage. She was much affected as the last words, before her husband was lowered into the grave, were said. When she returned to the station she showed no signs of having been weeping,' but as she 'was taken to her cell by the matron the woman burst into tears. Matron McPeak says the 'woman has shown extraordinary self control during her Imprisonment. Stackpole Is Reticent Her alleged companion, Ernest G. Stackpole, who Is in cell 6 of the city jail, has taken a sullen attitude toward the Jailer and the trusties. The man has talked with no one for several days. Pat Murray, the jailer, says Stackpole shows extraordinary stoic ism . and seems Indifferent as to what will' be done with him. 'During the time of the funeral of Joel Scheck yesterday Stackpole was entirely indifferent, and when he was told : that Mrs. Scheck had been taken to her husband's funeral, at her own request, the man did not say a word nor change expression. • The interment of Scheck was under the auspices of the "Fraternal Brother hood, Royal lodge, of which Scheck ■was a member.

SENATE FACING STRENUOUS WEEK CANAL BILL* MUST AGAIN BE ARGUED Meat Inspection Measure Comes Up Tuesday for Final Consideration. General News Forecast of the Week By AsxoclAted Press. WASHINGTON, D. C, June 17.-In preparation for the vote on the sea level Panama canal bill, which la fixed for next Thursday, the senate will devote much of the time this week prior to that date to the consideration of the bill. ;., ; The senate agreement calls for a final vote on the bill before adjournment on Thursdtiy and for beginning the vote on amendments at 3 o'clock on that day. The Lake Erie and Ohio ship canal bill will also continue to receive atten tion. The meat inspection amendment will be called up Tuesday and disposed of with as great dispatch as possible. The time to be spent on It Is estimated as two days. Debate on this bill will be confined to the destruction of the vari ous publications of the measure and proposed amendments thereto. Pure Food Bill The pure food debate will, be some what political In Its nature. For several weeks members who have applied for time to make tariff rpeeches and to dis cuss politics generally have been told to wait until the pure food bill came up. The passage of this bill before the adjournment of the session was planned some time ago by Speaker Cannon and Chairman Hepburn of the interstate find foreign commerce commission, as It was decided then to make It the vehicle for thu closing of the political speeches of the' session. The Immigration bill, which is to close the week's work, will be iiiven the con sideration which the time permits. In order to finish the program the leaders have opt for the bouse it may require that body to sit during the evening, as well as carrying out the special order for 11 o'clock sessions each day. The omnibus public building. bill and tho general deficiency bill will not en ter into legislative consideration this week. Public Building Bill The public building bill is to be one of the last taken up at this session. So many members are . interested in this bill, and therefore remain at the capltol while It is pending, that put ting the bill last on the program makes it easier to maintain a quorum of the house during the wind up of the session when th«> presence of the members is needed to prevent useless delays. The interstate commerce commission on Thursday. June 21. will be in ses sion in Washington and will be ready at that time to hear the presidents of the railroad companies concerning which testimony has been taken re cently to show that rebates have been granted or that the distribution of cars has been influenced by favoritism. The presidents who have been notified that the commission will hear them are: A. J. Cassatt, Pennsylvania railroad: Oscar G. Murray, Baltimore & Ohio: George W. Stevens, Chesapeake & Ohio: L. E. Johnson, Norfolk & West ern, and W. H. Newman, New York Central & Hudson River railroad. Coronation of King Haakon VII On Friday the coronation of King Haakon VII of Norway will take place.

The suburban handicap will be run at the Sheopshead Bay course of the Coney Island Jockey club on Thurs day, the 21st.

The flold for the Suburban this year, however, promises to be most disap pointing, as one by one the horses which were destined to be the stars of the year have broken down and gone into temporary or permanent retire ment. Sysonby, Artful. Lanya, and lastly Burgomaster, have all gone wrong and have taken much of the class from the race. Notwithstanding their ab sence, however, it will still take a good horse to win over the mile and a quar ter course. The fie-ld will be a large one and evenly matched. The Intercollegiate regatta will be held at Poughkeepsie on Saturday, June 23. There will be three races — a 'varsity eight, a 'varsity four-onr and b freshman eight.

WASHINGTON, June 17,-Speaker Cannon spent some time at the White House tonight with President Roose velt conferring on legislative matters. The speaker, regarding the adjourn ment program, Bays '.hat ho expects congress will close up business and get awuy from Washington by July 1. Regarding the meat Inspection legis lation, Jlr. Cannon reiterated his opinion that safe and sane legislation will be enacted and that nothwithstand- Ing differences on the natter of judicial review everybody's constitutional rights will be protected. Thero are a number of questions which are to. be brought before the house under sucpension of the rules and Speaker Cannon says that If threo hours be devoted tomorrow for that purpose these can be disposed of. This in all probability will be done unless the house decides to immediately adjourn, after convening, out of re spect to the memory of Representative Lester of Georgia, who died yesterday.

Mr. Adams, v/ho was at the "White House Friday, and was made ac quainted with J .he president's views, explained them in detail to his col leagues on the committee today. A suggested amendment, which Mr. Adams says emanated from the de partment of agriculture officials, and which. It is said, is favorably consid ered, by the president, has been brought forward to eliminate the objections set forth by the president to the court re view proposed by the amendment. Gives Secretary Final Control This new proposition Is designed to give the .secretary of agriculture final control of the situation so far as the question of fitness of slaughtered ani mals for human food is concerned, by the insertion of the following clause In the paragraph of the amendment relat ing to Inspection and condemnation at the post mortem examination of such animals "which in the judgment of the secretary of agriculture bo unsound, unhealthful. unwholesome and unfit for human food." This clause is suggested to take the place of the words "found to be un sound, unhealthful." etc. The proposed amendment is expect ed to meet with opposition from Iho packing interests, who object to dele gating such final authority, to the de partment officials. Mr. Adams expressed tho opinion that the committee on agriculture will recede from its position, waiving the .appointment of inspectors under tho civil service commission. This waiver was Inserted in the amendment be cause, he sayn. tho committee was un der the Impression that the depart' ment had not a sufficient list of per sons available for that position. He haß since been informed that there will be a sufficient number ready for work whenever the legislation becomes ef fective. Chairman Wadßworth of the com mittee, who IS" in New York, is ex pected to return to the city tomorrow.

BANK CLEARINGS BREAK RECORDS UNITED STATES HAS BANNER MONTH IN MAY Los Angelet Shows Month's Gain of Five Millions, but San Francis. co Reports a Temporary Loss Bany clearings In the United States in May were the largeHt for the month on record, and the largest, with the exception of December and January last, ever recorded. It Is probable that but for tho fire in San Francisco the figures would have exceeded even those for the two months named, for an analysis ot the clearing house statements shows that the calamity In the northern part of this state had a serious effect on the totals for the entire country. San Francisco, Plttsburg and St. Louis were the only large cities in the country that showed a loss In clear- Ings last month as compared wnth May, 1905. The decrease for Plttsburg and St. Louis was comparatively small, amounting only to about 6 per cent for the former and 3 3-8 per cent for the latter, but San Francisco dropped more than 64 per cent. In May, 1905, San Francisco reported clearings amounting to $146,281,511, while last month the total was only $52,467,612. This loss was so great that despite the fact that most of the other coast cities showed good gains in their bank exchanges, tho total for the entire Pacific coast states group fell $57,000, uOO behind the record for the corres ponding month last year. Los Angeles Gains San Francisco's loss of $94,000,000 was thus about half made up by the other cities on the Pacific coast. I^os An geles showed a gain" of $5,000,000, the clearings in this city last month being $47,320,025, against $42,401,260 for the corresponding month last year, and $28,601,913 for May, 1004, There is no question that 1906 will be the banner year in point of clear ings for Los Angeles. The total for 1905 was the hlgheßt that ever had been recorded up to that lime, but so far In 1906 there has been an enormous gain over the results shown for the corresponding period last year. The total for the first five months of 1906 is $240,655,047, against $186,783,107 for the corresponding period last year, and $140,592,466 for the first five months in 1904. The High Record The Increase for the entire country over May last year was 9.6 per mrnt, and over May, 1904, 60 per cent. The Increase over May, 1901, which, until recently was the high record of clear ings, was only 3 per cent. New York's total for the month was 11 1-2 por cent above 1905, Philadelphia 9 5-8, Boston 4 1-4 and Chicago 9. Clearings for tho full month of May compare as follows, classified by im portant representative cities and by sections of the country: 1906. 1905. 1301.

Steamers San Gabriel and dnarles Nelson Depart for North Under her own steam, and in the presence of elffht deputy sheriffs from Los Angeteß. the steumer Mayfuir, be longing to Ueudle Uroa. of San Fran cisco, went to sea at noon Sunday, bound for Port Los Angeles. The Mayfalr has been tied up in Ban Fedro since lunt Tueßday. yhe had be«n unable to tret longshoremen to ll u lull discharging the balance of her cargo of dHi.ooti feet of lumber which remained when her crew left tlm vts eel. On Saturday oiu» of the owners, Don Beadle, was In San Pedro and made ! arrangements to have the vessel towed to Port Los Angeles. Tho tug Redondo arrived for that purpose shortly. before ' night, but a short conference was held between quite a number of sailors and ' longshoremen, who were present .on ■ tho wharf, and Captain Titchworth of the tug. the result of which was that no attempt was made to clear. ■ Application for assistance was made to the sheriff's office, and at 11 o'clock Uunday eight deputies put in their ap pearance. No resistance whatever was made by sailors or longshoremen. Although she cleared under 1 her. own steam, it was reported that the tug Hedondo was In wait in the outer har bor to take her In tow for Fort l,oa Angeles. This leaves only the steamer Nome i City at this port tied up. Her oftt- ' cers and engineers left Friday on. the, Jloanoke for San Francisco. The en- , tire crew was paid off here. . .... Steamer San Gabriel, for Umpqua river, which lias met the demand of , the sailors, sailed late Saturday night,; Steamer Charles Nelson, for Tacoma,: left last night. She hud signed the agreement mi I y for t lie round trip, from Tiinima ami It la believed in Sun. Tedio that she will be tied up when she: reaches the north. , ' ,■ -, ; .
