Hostile Interests in Senate
to Prevent Change
Tho Presidents Recommenda
tions to Bo Sidotrackod by In
voking Excuso of Constitutional
Prerogatives of Legislation
The fact that President KoosetcU lias
come out Rat fooled la favor of liberal
concessions to the Cubans In the ua ot
reductions In tho present duty on sugar
nnd tobacco Importid luto the United States
from Cuba has brought the new Chief
Executive directly Into conflict with Con
gress and according to the Republican
leaders iu the Senate a merry war Is In
evitable unless Mr Ilootcvelt does what
he has never been known to o in the
past back down and surrender
In the recommendations In his msiape
which refer to Cuba the President has
Rotten as far away from the Republican
leaders iu CongrcsB as he could poislbly
Ret lie has made It clear that he IU
hUcd by his position end will continue to
demand fair treatment for the Cubans
until lie evokes some response from Con
gress The Republican torifl leaders are
equally certain that the will not sunen
der to the President so that the outlook
for a fight between the White House and
Congtcs is very bright The lYesIUciils
reciprocity declarations are not consid
ered by Republican leaders rs demands
for legislation on that subject and the
President himself agrees with this iovv
n Alllnncr if Intercuts
With the backing of the high protection
ists and their allies the beet sugar peo
ple the Republican leaders In both Sen
ate and House have prepared a little
scheme whereby the President will be
compelled to acknowledge himself beaten
and which will ensure those Interfiled
from any disturbance In the ratei on
sugar and tobacco The plan was -greed
upou at a conference held on Saturdaj
and If It is put through will In all prob
ability proc successful
The proposed plan Is a clever one and
will prove entirely xatinfactorv to all
high protectionists It provides that u
cumber of prominent Senators who hire
expressed themselves as favorable to con
cessions to Cuba and who arc known to
be on good terms with the Preside will
suddenly discover that the House leaders
are to luslsi on the exercise of the con
stitutional prerogative which gives to the
House the authority to originate legisla
tion alicctmg the revenues of the Oovera
1 lie Inrt of lliinr Lrndrrx
The Hotree leaders according to lite
programme are to demand that the legis
lation reparfllug reduction on Import
from Cuba shall oilginstc in the House
and not in the Senate The Republican
Senators who arc only too glad to ovad
the responsibllit in this delicate matter
will cheerfully concede to the House
everything that H demands and will at
the same time compel the lower branch
of Ccngras to shoulder all the onus ami
trouble that go with the privilege of
shaping the Cuban legislation
The Republican leaders In the Senate
white admitting that something should be
done for Cuin are of the opinion that
nothing will lc eflccted in the way of
tariff conccustons during the present ses
sion The high protectionists nnd the
beet sugar people Jxrins in power on the
House side will attend to seeing that the
rates on sugar and tobacco arc not dis
turbed It Is held so that the Senate will
not Tie held responsible for lack ot action
and will avoid the unpleasant ordeal of
toting en the tariff question
XxilulnlnK lmU of Aefinii
la the House the claim will be made
that this Is not the proper lime to adjust
this question and the argument will be
made that -we must wait until the Cu
bans are in a position to give nn re
turn for the concessions they demand
Cuba Is expected to do something for cer
tain products of the United States In ex
change for the concessions It will also
be held that these are matters which arc
usually adjusted by treaty negotiations
nnd It will Le nearly a jear before there
will be an Independent Cuban govern
ment capable of arranging commercial
In all probability the whole matter will
be laid ocr until the second session of
the present Congress and despite the
fact that both the President and Secre
tary Root are working hard for the tariff
concessions It Is predicted by thoic who
ought to know- that nothing will be done
for Cuba at the present session

whites and negroes and appealing to
Congress not to cut the representation of
the Southern States because of the suf

It was reiolved to hold the next meet

ot inculcating in the negroes of that par
ish a proper regard for law and order
A special committee on barbarity and
lawlessness and their remedies declared
that acts of lawlessness and barbarism
are commuted by both races that the
tendency toward lawlessness Is growing
among bolh races especially among the
younger element The organization ex
pressed the opinion that assault should
be punished to the fullest penilty pre
scribed by law that Is by death and
at once but by a lawfully constituted
It was resolved further to ask Con
gress not lo accentuate the race question
bj a reduction of Southern representa

South and causing a repetition of tho
bloody scenes of the seventies
The negroes ore urged to lead sober
moral and industrious llres obey and re

last uight but were defied and outwitted
by Sheriff Boughlon Conductor Dooty
and Lnglneer l tngan ot the Louisville
and Nashville night express to Louisville
with tlie result that Howard was safely
delivered at Frankfort today
The railroad officials wcro warned of an
attempt nt rescue and the passengers in
the day coaches were transferred to tho
sleepers before reaching Plnevllle There
Houghton defied n crowd of Howards
friends and got the prisoner on the train
nnd held the crowd at bay from locked
Kngrlncer Refused to ItneU
The mountain men then held up the
train nnd commanded the train crew- to
lack the train to Middlesborough En
glnter Lnngpn refused to back the train
without on order from the conductor as
a freight train was closely following
Conductor Dooty also refused to back
the train and when covered with a pistol
said boldly
You may kill me If ou will but I
shall never back this train
About this time Langan by a ruse ht l
gotten rid of the thrco men who had
overpowered him In the engine among
them a deputy United States marshal
and sent the train ahead so quickly that
the conductor barely had time to swing
nboard and the friends of Howard were

As tbc traia carried mall and was de

especially the deputy marshal whose duty
it was to sec thai the train should bo
given free headway
Berry Howard Indicted ns ac
cessory to the murder of William Gocbel
was brought here this morning and lodged
in jail
There Is a reason for the change of po
sition of Sheriff Boughton In making the
arrest after so long a failure to perform
this duty At the last term of the Frank
lin Circuit Court Commonwealths At
torney Franklin asked Judge Cantrlll for
a rule agalnt Boughton to show causa
why he had not made the arrest
This rule Is still pending It Is the
Iut or the sheriff to make his settle
ment in person with the auditor before
tho JOth of December each year
lrcMl to Appcfir In Prmnn
Wbcn Deputy Slusher was told that tho
sheriff must come in person und settle
he replied that tho sheriff would not
come that thctc was a rule against him
by Judge Cantrlll for not making the ar
rest of Howard
The auditor said he would make no set
tlement unless be came There is a heavy
penalty on a delinquent sheriff and
Boughton was between two Arcs a con
tempt rule If he came without havlLg
served the warrant and a heavy penalty
if he staved away and failed to settle

Senator MrLaurln of Mississippi saved
the life of a little deaf girl at Seventh
Street and Pennsjlvanla Avenue early yes
terday evening and showed himself a man
of rare presence of mind
The rescue of the little girl by Senator
McLaurin at the risk of his own life oc
curred so quickly that for a full minute
the onlookers did not seem to realize Just
what had happened Then camp the ap
preciation thai an act of courage had keen
performed and found expression In cheers
and applause
Senator McLaurin was one of a consid
erable crowd which was waiting for the
cars going In the Bcveral directions As
the car he wished to take approached he
walked out Into the middle of the street
Then for the first time ho noticed that
a child who rould not have been more
than ten years of age was standing on
the north ear track also waiting for a
downtown car
The Senatoi from Mississippi saw a
second car coming up from the Capitol
When he noticed it the headlight was not
more than twenty feet away He thought
the girl would step off the track but she
apparently had not noticed that another
car was coming as her back was turned
toward it and her face toward the car
she wished to take All this occurred In
the space of a second of time Tho rap
idly moving car crossed the Avenue al a
high rate of speed
Senator McLaurin showed himself lo he
gifted with presence of mind and the abil
ity to think and act quickly to an emer
gency He sprang forward seized the
girl In his arms and leaped again into
safety The fender of the car grared both
the child and her statesman rescuer
Senator McLaurin after this exhibition
of jculhful nglllly was once more the
calm collected and dignified member of
the upper branch of Congress He placed
the uninjured child on the roncreto and
spoke to her reassuringly Then he
brushed a siwit of lust from his trousers
and removed his high silk hat to brush
bin liHlr Ih his hand
When he removed his hat a man In the
crowd recognized him Instantly he
shouted Three rheers for Senator Mc
liurln The crowd took it up and the
Senators ntme was cheered repeatedly
and coupled with the most complimentary
The Senator stooped to speak to the
little girl again who was Just beginning
lo realize the danger she had been In
He then found that the child was almost
totally deaf
Senator McLaurin walked uir the Ave

The activities of the food Inspectors of
the Health Department aro Just now be
ing cxcrci3cd in detecting the sale of
spurious elder Judging from the samples
brought to Prof J D Hlrd tho chemist
of tho department every day the sale of
elder must be quite extensive in Washing
ton The results of analyses show that
only a small part of tho liquor sold under
the name is genuine cider
Prof Hlrd was In Ills laboratory on Sat
urday with a dozen six ounce bottles of
so called elder before him which tho In
spectors had recently brought In Of
fourteen bottles which he wa3 then test
ing only one was apple cider The rest
were decoctions of various Mirts which
resemble cider In greater or less degree
3lnlnssis nnl AVnter
Prof Hlrd explained that the majority
of tho bottles of stuff before him con
tained a solution of molasses and water
treated with brewers yeast to start tha
fermentation nnd then doctore t with
some disinfectant to arrest tho fermenta
tion and to keep It from getting sour
A Times reporter was allowed to taste
and smell of the contents ot several bot
tles and to compare them with the real
cider which one of them contained The
difference was apparent for the decoc
tions had little resemblance to elder One
or two of them tasted quite like sweet
cider but It was evident when compared
with true elder that here was something
Prof Hlrd explained that with the ex
ception of tho drugs put Into the stuff
to keep It from souring the spurious
elder contained nothing that is positively
harmful to the human system He said
that Instead of drinking a glasr of elder
which he bought and paid for tho man
would be drinking a few ounces of cheap
molasses and water with enough brewers
joast to disarrange his digestion for
twenty four hours Prof I d said this
was the price which tho in Iber of soft
drinks paid when he took a glass ot cider
at the bar
The Ingredients Dntilitfnl
It one could always be certain that the
ingredients used were good the spurious
cider would not be particularly harmful
Prof Hlrd thought but he showed a sam
ple In which npplc pulp bad been intro
duced to help out the deception This
formed a dirty sediment In the bottom of
tho glass and the impress left was that
it would not taste well or ensure personal
comfort afterward
Prof Hlrd said that the real harm
came about In the use of salicylic acid
and formaldehyde to arrest tho fermenta
tion These he declared to be harmful
when taken In the quantities In which
they arc introduced Into these drinks
Vinegar Lsnnll nod
With regard to vinegar Prof Hlrd
stated that there was little deception In
Its sale Ho said there wa3 no cheap
imitation of vinegar which was not at tho
same time so harmful that It was dan
gerous to use it Prof Hlrd said that the
best vinegar Is now produced from malt
by a distilling process and that tho
product Is far ahead of cider vinegar It
should Le nearly clear and should have
a sharp acid taste he said due to the
presence of acetic acid He said that It
was preferable In quality to elder vine
gar and free from the vinegar ells which
almost Invariably Invade the vinegar bar
rel of the old farmhouse
Prof Hlrd explained that the results of
tho testing were to warn the persons sell
ing the decoction and if persisted In to
bring thorn into the Police Court and
subject theni to a fine under the food

George Trowbridge alias William Keefe
