Close of Epoch-Making Congress Is Very Tame
Ruef Is Aided by Judge Who, Heney Says, Was Drunk
Hebbard, Pallid and Trem
bling, Finds Phrases
Evade Mind
Resents Statement That the
Proceedings Are a
Departs From Courtroom
When It Sees How
Matters Stand
"The reason we left the courtroom
was that we had direct information
that Ruef and his attorneys had a
complete understanding in advance
with Judge Hebbard and any proceed
ings would have been immaterial to
what occurred. He had agreed to a
programme. He was under the in
fluence of liquor the whole afternoon
and unfit to sit on the bench.
"It is well known to the majority of
the members of the bar that Judge
Hebbard goes on debauches and fre
quently is in an intoxicated condition
on the bench and commits freaks.
"Judge Hebbard is a disgrace to the
bench and ought to have been im
peached and removed long ago.
"He acknowledged all these things
in a communication he signed January
17 last when he was getting over a
spree. It is time for the Bar Associa
tion to wake up and take some action
before the courts are brought into
utter disrepute. .
"Originally Hebbard had a brilliant
mind, but the excessive use of liquor
has nearly destroyed-it. He has been
a drunkard for three years. His pre
tense that he thinks a federal question
involved in the Ruef case is too ab
«urd to be worthy of a moment's con
sideration. It amounts to the claim
that the constitution of the United
States guarantees that no man shall
be put upon trial under indictment
returned by a grand jury one member
o/ which had served on a trial jury
within the preceding year. To para
phrase Junius: This is an absurdity
so profound that it would startle the
brain of an idiot.
"If there were nothing at stake ex
cept the immediate trial of Ruef we
could afford to view Hcbbard's
action with composure, but this is
a flagrant attack upon the orderly
administration of justice and is calcu
lated to bring all courts and all law
into disrespect. Every law-abiding
citizen must therefore view such pro
ceedings with alarm and disgust.** —
Statement of Prosecutor Hcney.
Groping vaguely for- words in whl^h
to express his ruling, Superior Judge J.
C. B. Hebbard issued yesterday after
noon to Abe Ruef a writ of error and
tuperFe.deas, which has the effect of
removing the proceedings against tlie
boss and business agont of ' Mayor
S<*hmltz from the Superior Court to the

the validity of the indictments charging
Ruef with extorting money from

Mmd v
Strenuosity of Past Week
Cause of Dampening
of Enthusiasm \
With a new record fdr large appropri
ations and far-reaching legislation, the
Fifty-ninth Congress was brought to
a close shortly after noon today. The
last few hours were tame in comparison
with what had been expected. Long
before noon Senator Gallinger's fight
for the . passage of the ship subsidy bill
had been abandoned, and the filibuster:
against it conducted by Senator Car
mack being "no longer,/ necessary, he
suiTendered the .floor.' much tp the dls*-'
j appointment of tb a c galleries. Extreme
J^atigue, due to continued night ses
sions in the House, during .the -last
week, had a dampening effect upon
many Congressmen and the usual ex
cessive "last d»y" enthusiasm was con
fined to less than half the membership.'
President Roosevelt, wjth his Cabi
net, White, House staff and a number
of guests, occupied the President's
room in the Senate wing. Seated at a
big table in the center of the room he
signed bills as they were enrolled and
presented to him. On account of the
dispatch with which business had been
conducted during the past week, there
were only forty bills to be signed today.
pnESiDEXT, i.v cohdiai, mood
The President was at the Capitol for
more than an hour. He spent' most
ot the time in visiting with his Cabinet
both the retiring and incoming mem
bers being preset.'" and in presenting
them to personal friends* from the,. Sen
ate and the House. Retiring Senators
were received amd without exception he
expressed regrejt that' these lawmakers
were to leave the service of the country.
Especially warm; was his' reception to
Senator Spooner, who' announced, his
voluntary retirement yesterday.
When the members. of the committee,
which waited upon him with the in
formation that Congress was. ready to
adjourn, had delivered their message,
the President thanked them for the
laws that had been enacted, but added
with a smile that he still had several
bills that would .be heard from in the
future. ' / '• ' "'\u25a0\u25a0.":
Vice President Fairbanks and Speak
er Cannon received *the tffanks of the
minority for the impartial manner in
which they had presided over, the delib
erations of the- two houses, and both
made speeches; expressing gratitude at
the words of appreciation. A feature
of the House session; was the presenta
tion of a club silver service of,; 300
pieces to General Grosvenor by his col
leagues of the Fifty-ninth Congress. In
addition to the songs and stories that
usually mark the close of a session/, the
entire House rose, "waved 1 flags- and
sang "My Country. 'Tis of Thee," as the
gavel fell at 12:16 p." m. ' ;-
The closing' exercises In the, Senate
did not begin until six ; minutes after
noon. « Previously Senator Hale had
secured the adoption of a joint reso
lution'authorizing a committee of Sena
tors ''and' Representatives to wait upon
the President .and. inform him that the
work' of. the Fifty-ninth Congress? was
finished, "unless the President had some
other communication ; to make." . Sena

on .this committee. :. The adjournment

SACRAMENTO, March 4.— "1 shall
sign the bill providing for the sub
mission of the question of the capital
removal to the people," said Governor
.Gillclt^tbday. "It would be ridiculous
for me to refuse to" sign \a > bill passed
by; virtually a three-fourths i .vote : of
both houses," continued the Governor.
'\u25a0'There* is no use dallying about it/ It
is a question for the \u25a0 people^ to; settle.
The '. • Legislature has j spoken ', unmis
takably,: and if "there could ' have ' been
any . doubt about it before that doubt
was removed -today by the vote : in the
Assembly, on the motion to .reconsider."
The hope of the Sacramento contin
gent went glimmering this morning
when Grove Johnson's attempt \u25a0 to' se
cure a reconsideration of the -vote by
which the capital removal bill- was
passed on Saturday. The refusal to
reconsider was by a vote substantially
as decisive and one-sided as was that
by : which the bill was passed. Recon
sideration received only, 17 votes as
against 41, in the negative. Individual
changes in the vote ior reconsideration
Indicated no change of heart on the
main question.. .'
Johnson based his argument in sup
port of the motion for reconsideration
on ' an expressed desire 1 to amend the,
title of the^blll so that it would 'read.
"An art to change the srat'of govern
ment from Sacramento to some. other
place.'* .H> argued : that if the people
were'to vote upon a change of the seat
of government all aspiring cities should
be given a chance. He did not em
phasize the fact that with a half-dozen
contenders in the race nono: would se
cure a majority of the votes and Sacra
mento would win hands down, without
an effort- ' ,

BOSTO.V, March 4.— SernatFon. are

secretly married to Mrs. Eddy for aome
time. Frye denies this, and no does Irv
ine C. Torn Union of First Church. Bos.
ton, who, declares that he would knon
It such' Tvere the ease. Ao one has yet
come forward with records to establish
the fact either one way or the other. •
Frederick W. Peabody, a Boston law
yer retained by George Glover to look
after the suits: to be tried' in Boston
against the MotherChurcn'mfeitfe^fi

proved, -would tend to show that Mr*.
Eddy had been insane for years. Pea
body was attorney for Mrs. Josephine
"Woodbury in the latter's celebrated li
bel suit against Mrs. Eddy.
Peabody says: "Mrs. Eddy was pres
ent at the autopsy that she ordered
performed on the body of her husband.
Dr. ; Asa Eddy, who died in ISB3. She
saw the body of her -husband cut up by
surgeons and later beheld his heart
held up for examination. The defect
of the heart that caused his death was
pointed out to her by the surgeons.
. "The surgeon who performed the au
topsy. Dr. Rufus Knoyes,' so Chambers
street, is now engaged ,in writing an
article dealing with this matter. / A day
or two after the autopsy Mrs. Eddy
came out with a statement to the effect
that Dr. Eddy had died from arsenical
poisoning, 'mentally administered.'
"Can any one read of such things
and believe that Mrs. Eddy has not
long been a fit subject for alienists?"
demands Peabody.
"Here is a woman who declared that
two men were practicing witchcraft, a
woman who claims for herself that she
can sit in her own parlor and blast
crops in the fields and being sickness
and death to whomsoever she wills.
Yet, on the other hand, to her followers
she declares that there ja no sickness.
Just wait until the alienists examine-
Mrs. Eddy. Just think of Christian
Science believers! who have no use for
medical practitioners, hiring mental ex
perts to. defend their claim that Mrs.
Eddy is -sane."
There is much mystery as to the
identity of the people who are back
ing Glover in his suit, for Glover him
self ,1s practically penniless and has no
money for traveling expenses: to say
nothing of lawyers. Georg* "W. Baker,
\u25a0who is, joined with Glover in his suit,
"There can be no settlement. There
are associated with me men having all
the money needed to light this thing
to a finish and see justice done to my
aunt. .So far as pecuniary considera

thing Infinitely deeper than that. I
