LINCOLN, Neb., D*c. 28.— Senator
A. J. Baverldge addressed the closing
meeting of the Nebraska State Teach
ers' -association here tonight, speaking
on "The Schools and the Nation." He
was Introduced by W. .i Bryan.
"Nothing," he said, "shows how
much greed forgets humanity as child
slavery. There Is something wrong
with a prosperity which is so Immense
that It finally comes to feed upon the
lives of little children. Men who make
money by working Infants are making
too much money.

"If everybody. Including tho most

By Associated Press.
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 28.—Alexan
der Johnston Cassatt, president of the
Pennsylvania Railroad company and
one. of the foremost men and financiers
In the country, died suddenly at his
residence In this city today of heart
disease, aged 67 years.
Though Mr. Cassatt's death was un
expected, he had been in ill health for
nearly a year. His condition was ag
gravated by an attack of whooping
cough which he contracted from his
grandchildren while at Bar Harbor in
September. He never entirely recov
ered from this attack, and when he
returned to Philadelphia he remained
several weeks at his country home in
During November he was sufficiently
recovered to- resume his work, and he
continued attending to important mat
ters until his birthday, December 8.
Again it was reported that he was se
riously ill, but this was denied.
Mr. Cassatt spent much of his time
driving and he was out as late as
Monday. Subsequently he was known
to have been confined to bed, but even
then his condition was not considered
as .Harming.
While not feeling entirely well, Mr.
Cassatt arose from his bed this morn-
Ing but remained In his room. He
seemed in good spirits and his family
was not alarmed about his condition
and had no thought of his death.
Shortly before 1 o'clock he suffered
an acute heart attack and became un
conscious. His wife and his daughter,
Mrs. W. H. Lunkett Stewart, were
with him and a physician was sum
moned, but he was dead when the
physician arrived. The latter said
that death had been almost Instan
The news of Mr. Cnssatt's death was
at once telephoned to the Broad street
station and was Hashed to the finan
cial and business sections of the city.
The effect upon the local stock mar
ket was not as great as might have
been expected. Pennsylvania was
quoted at 138 1-4 when the news was
received nnd dropped only 3-4.
In the executive offices of the rail
road for a time business was practi
cally suspended. His condition had not
been such as to suggest any definite
arrangements for a succession to the
presidency and the board of directors
will not meet until after the funeral,
for which arrangements have not yet
been announced.
Some months ago Mr. Cassatt marts
chanpres In the organization of the
company which put new duties on
some of the higher officials. Among
these was Samuel Rea, third vice
president, and It was suggested at the
time the act was equivalent to plating
Mr. Rea In line for promotion.
Pending the election of a successor
First Vice President Green will as
sume charge of the rallrond company.
The operation of the railroad In the
last year Is said to have had much
to do with the breaking of Mr. Cas
satt's health. He was In Europe when
sensational developments In the Inter
state commerce commissjon Investi
gation of rebates brought htm home.
Deprived of his rest abroad, he j
plunged Into routine work until he
went to Bar Harbor.
Aside from being the head of the
Pennsylvania railroad, Mr. Cassatt
was president of six other companies
and a director in twenty-three con
cerns, principally transportation com
panies, banks and trust companies.
His wealth is estimated at between
$50,000,000 and $75,000,000.

NEW YORK, Dec. 28.— Mr. Cassatt
was born in Pittsburg in 1839, was edu
cated in Germany and at the Troy Poly
technic Institute. He entered the ser
vice of the Pennsylvania in 1861 as a
In 1867 he became superintendent of
motive power and machinery, and in
1876 became general superintendent of
the Pennsylvania system.
From this time his rise was rapid,
and in 1880 he had become first vice
president. In 1882 he resigned and did
not again hold an official position in the
company until he was elected to the
presidency in 1889.
Mr. Cassatt planned and started the
great New York city tunnel system for
the company.
The stock market was not affected by
the death of President Cassatt.

WASHINOTON, Dec. 24.— The shod
■egiion of th« nfty-nlnth congress, or
nt leant the first hnlf of the short ms
slon, will go down iii history m ■""
ln which the representatives and sen
ntors fought In ft blinding storm Of
messages from the White House.
Probably never before In the same
■pace of time has a chief executive
pointed to the law makers tha manner
ln which he wished the legislative mills
to grind,
However, President Itoosevelt's mes
sage habit li cured, according to all
reports. He has come In for such an
amount of adverse criticism because
of the activity of his pen that It is
said he is decidedly disgruntled and
that when congress reconvenes there
win be as "great a dearth of presiden
tial pronuncltimentos as there wag a
plenitude before.
The president renll7.es that a too free
use of the presidential messnge to call
to the attention of congress and the
country Important legislation depre
ciates the value of his official utter
ances. This realization, as well as his
resentment of the criticism, has prompt
ed him practically to put si stop to this
form of admonition.
Senate Is Not Hard.Hearted
lf a bill Introduced this week by Sen
ator Burkett becomes law the United
States mails will be open for the fr?e
transportation of all reading matter for
the use of the blind. The Nebraska
senator's measure Is as poetical as a
senate bill can be made.
lt touches tenderly upon the Inability
of the blind to sea the works of nature
and of art and dwells sympathetically
upon the many hours they are obliged
to spend In Idleness and in darkness.
The bill offers as a reason for thus
giving free carriage through the mails
to reading matter for the blind that
the cost of embossed matter is many
times the cost of Ink-printed or writ
ten manuscript, that they are heavier
and require greater outlay for postage
when mailed and for this reason the
blind, a vast majority of whom are
not in affluent circumstances, are un
able to exchange these works as they
might if the postal regulations were

Rivers and Harbors Bill Important
Congress will gather again on Janu
ary 3 for two months of fast work.
The ways have been greased with. the
launching of the big appropriation
bills. The first of these to be reported^
after the recess will be the fortifica
tion measure, which practically is
ready for the consideration of the
house. After that will come the dis
trict bill, the sundry civil and '- the
pension bills. 'V 'V ' ■/-.•■
The appropriation bills for the army
and the navy likely will be offered
about the middle of the month and the
latter is expected to evoke the usual
debate between the advocates and op
ponents of a greater navy. The entire
plan Is to have the legislative slate
clean as early as possible to permit of
a full consideration of the rivers and
harbors bill. It is expected to carry
between fifty and sixty million dollars.
This bill is regarded as the most Im
portant of all the appropriation bills,
as It is the first Intimation in years
that the government has awakened to
the necessity for a vigorous campaign
in the development of the waterways
of the country.
The convention of the National Rivers
and Harbors congress, held here early
in December, opened the eyes of con
gress to the necessity for making ade
quate appropriations for the needs of
commerce. The conviction that these
appropriations should be made was
strengthened by the congestion of traf
fic in all sections of the country.
ln the south the cotton crop Is tied
up. in the northwest towns and cities
are suffering for the lack of coal and
the financial condition of the west is
shaken because the farmers are un
able to move their great crops to
market through the inability of the
railroads to furnish cars.
Had the government in the past
made provision for the development of
the . country's natural resources the
rivers of the interior could have trans
ported practically all this heavy freight
and the railroad congestion never
would have resulted. It is the temper
of the present congress that the United
States should make amends for Its in
activity of the past by providing for
a wide-awake crusade in the future.
Legal Battle Between States
A pretty fight Is being waged in the
United States supreme court between
Kansas and Colorado. The case grows
out of the use of the waters of the
Arkansas river and the Sunflower
state claims that Colorado has appro
priated water in the last fifteen years
to the value of not less than $75,000,000.
The Kansas attorneys claim on be
half of their state that Colorado is
taking practically all of the water for
lrrigation purposes and they demand
that a fair division be made.
On the other hand, Colorado's attor
neys declare emphatically that there is
enough water for all and deny that
their drain on the river has worked
to the disadvantage of their lister
A formidable array of legal talent
is arrayed on both sides of the ques
tion and from present appearances the
supreme court has a very hard nut to

The assailant escaped.
Soldiers from Fort Reno, the sheriff's

The numerous outrages perpetrated
by negroes, supposed to be discharged
negro soldiers of the Twenty-fifth In

fuel to the rtames. Summary vengeance

PARIS. Dec. — The senate today

of the bill was voted by 187 ayes to 87

of the details of the various sections

Minister of Education Brland called

"The Vatican," declared M. Brland,
"has refused liberty. The bill does not

of this Is found In the fact that many

from submission thereto because ot ait
obedience to Rome which resembled

the church full benefits of the common

but It would not accord special rights
