WnsliltiKton, Jnn. 12. The senate gal
lorlw were fnlrly well filled to-day In an
tlclpatlon of 'u cporcli by Senator Ciormnn
on Hip currency nnestloit, in which It was
thought ho would propose some cotillion
of tho prolitrm from a Konnte Btnndpolnt.
It vm rxpi'cted also that Senator Quny,
nf Pennsylvania, who had spread beforo
him on lili desk a roll of mnnuscrlpt
which looked HUo one of tho formtdnltle
nnd carefully prepnred speeches for which
he Is noted, would address the senate.
Senator 'Wilson, of lown, nppenred on the
Moor for tho first time this session, after
a Ions llli.css. Governor Koster, of Louis
iana, was also on the floor, belne Intro
duced by Senator lilnnchard.
When the routine procecdlnRS were out
of tho wny, Mr. Coclcretl called up tho
urgent deficiency bill.
The presiding officer, Mr. Harris, ex
plained tho parliamentary situation com
ing over from yesterday. Mr. Hill had of
fered an amendment to the Item appro
priating funds for collection of the Income
tax fo that the legality of the tax would
Lc referred to the courts. The chair had
ruled out the amendment on a point of
crder. -Mr. IIIII appealed from the decis
ion of tho chair and Mr. Morgan moved to
lay tho appeal on tho table. In order to
permit senators to further discuss the In
come tax, Mr. Morgan ngreed to with
draw his motion and this postponed a vote
on Mr. Hill's appeal.
Mr. Teller (Itep., Col.) then addressed the
senate In support of a continuance of the
Income tax. He pointed to the largo treas
ury deficits which had been temporarily
met by bond Issues. The gold supply was
down to S?7,f"X,0iiO and was rapidly disap
pearing. Any proposition to do away with
the Income tax therefore should bo ac
companied by a plan to ralso the revenues
the government required. Mr. Teller gave
It as his opinion that the Income tax would
bp"fimi permanent, even though It was lim
ited to five years by tho present law. He
believed It was such an equitable tax that
the people would Insist upon Its coiitlnn
nnro. Import duties could n6t be put so
high ns to entirely keep out goods. And
without these high duties there was certain
to bo 11 deficit In revenue. It was essen
tial therefore that some middle course
should bo adopted and the Income tax
wis the most just menns of taking this
course. Mr. Teller spoke of the vain and
fruitless efforts of the executive branch
of the government to "do something to re
lievo the present distress of tho govern
ment and the people." It shows, snld the
senator, thnt the executive brunch Is In
the wrong hands. Mr. Teller spoke caus
tically of the "scheme of banking coming
from the treasury department," He re
ferred to the current rr ports that the bill
had been jotted off In thirty minutes to n
stenographer. "X wish to show- all duo re
spect to this bill," said Mr. Teller, "com
ing, as It docs, from such high sources, but
If such a measure enmu from any senator
or member, If it camu from any Populist,
it would be branded as the height of
Mr. Teller declared that the currency bill
proposed to Inaugurate the old era of wild
cat paper. It violated every principle of
finance In this country or any other. Mr.
Teller ridiculed tho talk nbout an "elastic"
and "flexible" currency, where banking
corporations had charge of the elasticity.
"There are nbout six weeks remaining to
this congress," said Mr. Teller. "Xow,
does any person seriously believe thnt a
revision of the vast currency system can
lie accomplished In that tlmo? Why, then,
Is congress and the country stirred by these
frantic appeals from the treasury?"
The senator argued that It was time the
executive authorities stopped what he
characterized as frantlo demonstrations of
Mr. Teller examined In detail the bi
metallic system of France under which
that country now enjoyed absolute tran
quility. Senator Hnwley (Itep., Conn,) nt this
point Interjected a narrative of hi personal
experience In Paris on tho night before
Franco raised tln vast sum to pay Its war
Indemnity to rjermnny.
Mr. Teller argued at length to prove the
low prices of agricultural products to-day
were the direct result of the demonetisa
tion of stiver, first by Germany, then by
the United States, and lastly, tho Latin
t'nlon. In every country which had kept
Its mints open to silver, prices of staple
products had remained absolutely stable
during the last twenty-llvo years. Ho cited
ns Illustration of that fact, India, Mexico,
China and Japan, It has been charged, he
f-ald, that those who were In favor of bl
inetalllsin were not In favor of sound
money. Hut If sound money was to bo pre
Ferved ho warned the senate It would be
preserve! through tho efforts of tho so
called klltvr men.
If tho gold basis was Insisted upon It
would be found too narrow and the tlmo
would coino when nu overissue of paper
money could not bo resisted, He described
tho growth of socialism and nnarchy In
tills country since tho demonetization of sli
ver; tho bitterness that bad grown up be
tween clubscs, This condition had been
produced by legislation,
"Are we now?" ho asked, "to admit ive
have neither tho wit nor wisdom to undo
what wo havodone?"
Although his sldo was not charged with
the responsibility for tho present situation,
he for ono would join with his political ml-vci-Milres
In any schejne or relief that
appealed to his judgment. Hut he had lit
tle hope when lift saw the senate nf the

errttlc party to nolvo the problem eventually
when tho pressure of Ihe people would nt
last force logical notion on this monetary
problem. Any scheme In secure his vote
must be In line with what ho believed to
lie Its solution. Mr. Teller closed with nn
eloquent nppenl to those on the other ride
or the chamber lo preieut a solution of the
existing problem which would not sur
render silver. It should be no makeshift,
no temporary expedient, but It should be
ample to avert a crMs more dangerous to
the American people than even that of war.
Mr. Lodge (Hep., .Mass,) spoka of the
danger of arresting npproprlntion.i and thus
killing 11 law by stagnation. Ho did not,
therefore, npprove of rofulng tho Appro
priation necesrnty to execute the Income
tax. The Imposition of a direct Income tax
was the necessary result of abandoning
the protective policy of Indirect taxes, lie
referreil to the present cry for currency
legislation ns n move to cover up Hip most
dismal failure In tariff Icglilntlnn the coun
try hail ever seen. The llrst step to taVe lo
overcome the distress of the treasury was
to raise more revenue. This currency agi
tation served no useful purpose. None of
these schemes could pass, Hut If the one
essential thing wns done nnd tnoie revenue
secured for the ttensuiy, he and Ills asso
ciates would gladly assist In pnsslng a
measure to accomplish that end. Such a
measure was Imperative, Instead of any
more such bills ns the one Just "kicked to
death" In the house of representatives.
Mr. Stewart, or Nevada, followed with o
speech urging the restoration of silver ns
the only means of remedying the present
distressed condition of the government. At
1:20 Mr. Stewart yielded the lloor, to re
sume Monday, and tho senate at 1:45 ad

Washington, Jan. 12. At the opening of
the house to-day Mr. Hatch, chairman of
the committee on agriculture, called up a
bill to extend the provisions of the Wilson
original package liquor law to oleomarga
rine in original packages.
The bill precipitated a discussion regard
ing the merits of the oleomargarine clause
and its constitutionality.
Mr. Hatch attempted to have the extra

SEVERED HIS WIFE'S JUGULAR.
llloody Deed of 11 JealoiK Puriiltiiro Pol
isher In Chicago Who Murders
Chicago, Jan. 12. Crazed by jealousy,
Jacob Miller, a furnituro polisher, resid
ing at 001 North Wood street, cut his
wife's throat from ear to ear with a
razor nt !) o'clock this morning. The
woman expired Instantly. Miller then
ruslied from the house to the factory
wher he was employed and shot James
Olander, the foretmfti, inflicting a slight
wound over the eyes.
This morning Instead of polng to work
Miller sat about the liouse quarreling
with his wife until 0 o'clock. The wordy
war had waxed fiercer every moment
nnd the man's two little children were
hiding, terrified, behind their mother.
Suddenly Miller stepped toward Ills wife
and drew a razor from his pocket. Seiz
ing the shrieking woman by the hair, he
pulled her head back. She. fell on h.-r
knees nnd her husband drew the shin
ing blade across her throat, cutting the
jugular vein. Tho murdered woman sank
forward on tho ll'-r as Miller relaxed
his hold, lier life blood gushing from the
ghastly wound. Dropping the razor,
Miller rushed from tho house to Knrpen
Hi-os.' factory. Hurrying Into the work
mom, where he was employed, lie faced
James Olander, the foreman, whom he
considered Ills enemy. Before the victim
could run for safety .Miller drev,- a revol
ver and tired at Olander. The bullet
struck tho foreman over the right eye,
plowed a furrow In Ills forehead and
glanced off. Workmen rushed forward
and seized tho innnmo before he could
flro again nnd secured the weapon, while
others aided tho wounded man. Miller
refused to say why ho hilled his wife,
lie wan said liv the neighbors to have
been very Jealous of her and quarrels
had been frequent

Tho Failure of Appropriation 4'nnnnt De

Washington, Jan. U'.-Scnalnr Gordon, of
Georgia, In conversation with' senators
culled attention to certnln provisions
of the Income tax which compel taxpay
ers to mnko returns ami pay their taxes
upon Incomes whether the pending appro
priation passes or not.
"Tho defeat," he said, "of uppinpilntlon

Topjka, Kas., Jan. 12. (Special.) The
house adjourned yesterday until Tuesday
of next week and many of the members
took advantage of the vueatlnn to go
home. Many of the senators nlo left for
homo tn-iilglil nnd the conreiiuctice Is n
practically deserted lobby.
The llrst week's work of the Kanns law
makers has not yielded anything startling,
nor has It developed anything bad. The
house has been happy and good-natured
In all of Us perfoi malices and through all
of Its ramlllcatlons has mn a subdued re
joicing at the overturn In politics which
reinstated the Heptlbllenn, In power. If ev
ery member of that body could be Inter
viewed us to lis Interests and desires In
the present session the reply of nine
tenths of them would be that Ids highest
aim was to so conduct the affairs of tho
people that the ItepUbllcan party could win
the election two years hence on Its record
In the present legislature.
Hut In the senate a different spirit seems
to prevail. The Populist senators do not
appear to lie wasting any thought on record-making.
In fact, they have surrender
ed hope of the future and are principally
engaged In making hay while the sun
shines. For Instance, the gentleman who
framed th" caucus resolution which was
adopted, and which established the olllcers
and employes of the senate, created on of
llce or two for the sole tun pose of making
a place for seme backwoods politician.
Sil "e that Mrst roll swoop upon the tieas
ury b.- the pally which makes a specialty
of public economy In Its platform, there
havo been resolutions passed eveiy day
which' created additional places, lly a res
olution coming from the Populist side, and
supported by every Populist In the senate,
except two, each committee cliairinairiias
been granted a clerk and a stenographer,
and each senator In the body lias been
given a clerk at the pay of $:i per day. In
fact the employes have become so thick
around the senate chamber that the crowd
Is likely to Interfere with business. If the
count lias not been misstated there are now
102 employes about tlio senate to wait
upon tile modest demands of forty sen
ators. The .Senatorial Sltuatltii.
The senatorial Issue will now take a
back seat for the Inauguration ceremonies
on Monday. Tho headquarters are practi
cally deserted to-day and will remain so
"until Tuesday morning. There Is no par
ticular change In the situation to b re
ported. The various candidates arc hold
ing their own, but that own Is not as clear
a quantity as It might be. With each re
curring day there is a change of sentiment
.is to the strength of the different candi
dates. The hot favorite of one day In the
minds of the lobby may not be the favor
ite the next, and It takes only the change
of a vote or two to establish this favor
ite. To-day the talk Is moie favorable to
C'y Leland, caused by the positive state
ment of I.uclen Haker, of Leavenworth,
that he Is not a candidate for United
States senator and Hint tho weight of
Leavenworth county will be thrown to Mr.
Leland. This means an addition of four
to his first ballot stiength and makes the
First congressional district solid for him
with the possible exception of two f 10111
The choice of Senator Price, of Atchison,
who is 111 and unable yet 10 attend the
meetings or the senate, Is not known, but
the common belief H that Atchison colmiy
will vole solidly to throw the senator as far
away as po--lble from the home or John
J. Ingall. The boom for Ing.ills which is
being groomed by outside parties can llnd
no sponsor among the members. He sim
ply Isn't under consideration, that's all.
Now and again some statesman appeals
who wisely shakes ills head nnd predicts
that tin- coming senatorial caucus will re
sult in a deadloik and llien, as by com
mon consent, the Icgi.-I.Uuro will turn lo
the brilliant Atchison statesman. Hut this
sort of talk never comes from members of
the legislature. They express no fears of
an unbreakable deadlock. Indeed, there
never was 11 senatorial campaign in Kan
sas when It was so easy for the legislature
to get together on a choice as In this race.
There lias been good feeling among the
rivals and no bitterness Is likely to ailse
that will deadlock the caucus. The mem

admirable as bric-a-brac, but doesn't make

Jefferson City, Mn., Jan. 12. A few Dem
ocrats here have raised a tempest in 11 ten
pot ami are making the most of It. Thurs
day forenoon 111 the house 11 resolution pre
vailed that General Nathaniel Lyon's por
trait, which formerly decorated the walls
of the liouse, ami was removed without
authority, be restored to Us place. Yester
ilav afternoon, Moore, of Stone, went to
Ashley Hiving and requested him to re
placp the picture. Soon afterwards Mr.
Hiving, with a corp of carpenters, entered
the house and going Into Speaker Mussell's
private otllce suggested that the portrait ot
Thomas H. Denton which hangs above
the speaker's chair be pushed about eight
feet to one side and Lyon's portrait be
hung by It. Mr. IlussMl replied: "Put It In
aiiv'sult.ablo place." Thereupon Mr. Hwlng
began lo move Denton's picture a little.
Hut Mr. Pcttljohn, entering at the lime,
interposed an objection and urged that the
portrait of Denton, tho statesman, should
not give place to that of Lyons, the soldier,
and that some other placo ought to be
found for the latter. It was agreed that
his stiRgestlon should be acted upon.
There tlio Incident ended, but interested
political busvbodies made the discovery
that Ilussell and Mooie had planned nn
insult to Missouri's great nnd honored dead
statesman and they have worked the In
cident foV nil It Is worth, and have exag
gerated It lievond any semblance of truth.
Like ghouls in a graveyard, they have not
.eased to dig and hunt and smell lor
tilings burled, nnd by many forgotten.
They nre attempting to nroue sectional
and war passions and prejudices Their
purpose Is discord and they need but an
atom of truth upon which to erect 11 moun
tain or effrontery and tnu!.. No one dr
Mred to outrage the memory of Meuton, no
one thought of It. Hxcept that others have
Htempled to give It nn undue party color
