Dr. Barnard several days ago pur chased on the market forty-nine sam ples of sausages, hamburger steaks. veal loaf. Wienerwurst..1 bologna and other meat products.

In the city court Judge Winfrey discharged Frank Sicilia. cafe and saloonkeeper, arrested under the Nicholson act for permitting men to drink intoxicants in the cafe after 11 p. m. The proof showed that the intoxicants were bought before the closing hour, and the court held that the purchasers had a right to drink them when they chose. inquiry would show as bad a condition in the grain business. He asserted that corruption had lnen uncovered at ev ery place where inquiry had been mada and asserted that ."tlie whole system Is permeated with fraud." Declares There Is a Combine. In support of his contentions he said that testimony taken by the commis sion indicates a joint ownership be tween the railroads and the elevator companies to the detriment of the farmers, who are entitled to a free and open market. He then gave the names of individuals and corporations which bad secured such Inside privileges as to give them monopolies along various western railroad lines, the list given in cluding the following: The Chicago and Bock Island, to Charles Counsel man: Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul.

As going to confirm his inference Of a combination I.aFollette said that the head of the Armour Elevator company is a large stockholder and a director of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul. He then read a number of let ters and quoted various statements to show that the railroad companies fa vor some elevators to which they are friendly, and discriminate against oth ers, which are not so well regarded by them, with the result that the price of wheat to the producers is far below what it should be. I Monopoly of the Grain Business. He declared in conclusion that prac tically all the grain shipped into Chi cago over any one line goes to one dealer and expressed the opinion that these wholesale dealers are closely al lied among themselves, thus constitut ing a virtual monopoly of the entire grain business of the country. Nelson confirmed the statements of I.aFollette, saying that he had personal knowledge of many instances of discriminations by the railroads In favor of line ele vators.

Gardner of Massachusetts, the spon sor of the bill asked if 4,(kk local la bor unions asking for an educational test carried thesuggestion of "bigotry.-' He contended that the pauperism in our large cities was directly traceable to the class of immigrants now being f admitted. When Gardner read a letter of President Gompers. of the Federa tion of Labor, urging the educational test, Oorkran asked: "Does Mr. Gom pers represent the people who landed in the Mayflower V" Burleson of Texas said the labor or ganizations are limiting the number of apprentices in order to Limit the num ber of skilled laborers. "Then in God's name," he asked, "what class is it that you do want? I will tell you; we want those who "will work with their two hands. Applause. We don't want to stimulate immigration in order to have more teachers, for there is a dozen applying for every vacancy that occurs in this country. Nor do we want more lawyers or doc tors. The only opportunity we can ever get to obtain laborers is through the open door where the honest immigrant can come to furnish it." SENATOR NOT IN SERVICE He Is Part of the Government, Says Spooner, and Proves It. Washington. June 20. While the senate Avas discussing the anti-pass provision of the railway rate bill, many senators denouncing it and de claring that it doe i not till the bill, Spooner said that a senator or represent ative is a "part of t h e go v ern m en t," a n d not "in the service of the government," ind he read from de cisions by the su preme court in sup- john c. EPOOXEB. port of his conten tion. He said he had no doubt of the gocd intentions of the conferrees. "Well, then, pity our ignorance," said Tillman. "I do not charge the conferrees with iguoranc." responded Spooner, ""they were only tired." "We are tired all right," responded Tillman: "I am tired unto death." Spooner thought senators and rep resentatives should be included by name and said the pending provision w-ould not include the president or fed eral judges.

Two pounds of dynamite were found con cealed under a rear corner of the Olive Branch Baptist church here and the officers are making an investigation. Had the dynamite exploded the church would have been blown to pieces. There has been considerable trouble in the church of late, warring factions. tli ere being two Tillman Says It Is on the Forehead of Certain Statesmen. Wasliington, June 20. When Till man reported the result of the confer ence on the railway rate bill he said he could not agree to the amendment exception of pipe lines from the pro vision prohibiting common carriers from carrying their own products. He said that on this the Standard Oil had gotten in its work. So firmly was he convinced of the instrumentality of the Standard company in securing this change that in his estimation "every senator who votes for the conference report would have "S. O." branded on his forehead. He did not mean to vote for it, because he did not want any body saying "You've got 'S. O.' brand ed on your forehead, Ben Tillman." He considered the independent companies whose interests are supposed to be in volved to be myths. Foraker contended that there was no proper analogy between a railroad and a pipe line. As a rule, he said, pipe lines are not built with the pur pose of doing a carrying business for hire, which is not the ease with the railroads. He believed that to retain the commodity provision as it passed the house would be to confiscate the property, and that therefore it would not have been sustained by the courts. The Ohio senator called attention to the fact that carriers by water are not regulated by the bill, which he said, does away with the argument that the bill should be made applicable to all modes of transportation. 3Iarriage of 3Iiss Fanny Fuller.
