House of Representatives Dern
cratic for the First Time in
Sixteen Long Years
The Great Missourian in Patriotic
Speech Accepts Speakership
•Representing 92,000,000
p -■""
WASHINGTON, D. C. April 4. —
The Sixty-second congress met In ex
traordinary session today. What the
session will bring forth, or when It
will adjourn are matters for conjec
ture. Democrats took possession of
the house and put Champ Clark Into
the speaker's chair. In his speech of
acceptance he warned the democrats
that the leyes of the whole country
Sre on them; that the party is on trial
and that it has the opporuniy, for the
first time In 16 years, to prove Its
worthiness for a still higher expres
sion of confidence. Throughout the
day the shadow of the coming presi
dential fight hovered about the capl
tol and there is no question but
maneuvers for political advantage
will play an important part tn the
affairs of the house.
AM Present But Wilson
Had Governor Woodrow Wilson
"been present, thk- list of generally ac
cepted democratic presidential pos
sibilities would have been complete.
It Is likely one of the most Import
ant thing the democratic house will
do will be to order an investigation
at the departments and other
governhiSHt service.
Democrats t**}alm there has been no
such investigation fo? 20 years and
tbat a saving to the people will result.
The house session was devoted to
the work of organization. The re
publicans will make their first fight n
these. They recent the action of the
democrats In increasing the member
ship of the committees without in
creasing the per centage of minority
Republican insurgents in the house
indicated their purpose to act In
dependently by declining to vote for
Mann for speaker and by giving their
support to Cooper of V'lsconsln.
The senate's opening wis as sedate
as usual. While the le? aershlp of the
upper branch remains in republican
hands the change in the personnel Is
almost as marked as in the house.
Aldrich, Hale. Beverldge and othiers,
*soth regular and progressive, were
among the missing.
In tbe House
This day marked the opening of the
trial of the democratic party to
demonstrate its worthiness to receive
"the wider confidence" of the voters
at the country. Asking his colleagues
to keep that fact uppermost In their
minds during the present session of
congress. Representative Champ
Clark of Missouri, in his speech ac
cepting the speakership of the house,
today outlined the measures through
which the democratic party hopes to
continue to enjoy the faith of the
Intelligent revision of the tariff,
ghangea ia the house rules to permit
proper consideration of house meas
ares; economy in handling the purse
strings of the country, the publication
at campaign contributions and the
early admissio of New Mexico and
Arizona to statehood were some of
the things which Speaker Clark em
phasized in the democratic program
as measures which would be under
taken by the majority party.
Tlio Speech
Speaker Clark said:
"Election to the high position of
speaker is an honor for which you
have my profoundest gratitude. To
be a member of the house, to repre
sent 200,000 American cit zens In the
more numerous branch of the great
est legislative body in the world ia
an honor comparatively few men may
"To be chosen by .the representa
tives of 92,000,000 people to preside
over their deliberations is a signal
mark of your favor for which the
best return is to discharge the oner
ous duties of the station to which
you have assigned me with such im
partiality, constancy, industry, cour
tesy and good temper as to expedite
the public business, thereby promot
ing the public weal. The pleasure
of being elected speaker is much en
hanced today by the perfect unanim
ity with which it is conferred by our
party fellows and the universal goo.l
will with which it is accepted by our
co-laborers of the minority.
Cooperation Invoked
"Coming into the speakership
under these fortunate circumstances,
the hearty cooperation of all mem
bers of whatever persuasion is earnest
ly invoked in maintaining order and
decorum and in placing upon the sta
tute books laws for the good of the
country, and the whole country,
working out promptly, patiently,
courageously, wisely and patriotically,
those measures necessary for the bet
terment of governmental methods an 1
for the amelioration of the conditions
under which we live.
"My democratic brethren, coupled
with the joy of once more seeing a
house, a large majority of which ll
of my own political Talth, Is a keeen
sense of our responsibility to our

WASHINGTON, April 4. —Keen
disappointment prevailed Monday In
the United States supreme court

weekly task without touching on the
dissolution suits against the Stand

The la. gest crowd that has attempt

Rev. A. W. Laningham Says So
licitor in This Field Is Work
ing Without Authorization
Some woman, acting without otl
thorlty Is soliciting in North Taklma
for funds for the Washington Chil
dren's Home society. According to
Risv. A. W. Laningham, superinten
dent of the North Taklma district
she is an Imposter.- He has encoun
tered Instances of her work, says
there Is no such woman authorized to
solicit in this field and asks possible
contributors to beware.
Mr. Laningham started for Seattle
last evening with a little child to
place In the custody of the home
there and expects to return today
with four or five children who are
to be placed with families In this
valley who have asked for them. He
says the work of the home Is meet-1
ing with a great deal of success and
that the men and women of eastern
Washington are not only generous In
tho contribution of funds for the sup

open their homes to the little ones to

Merriman Lost Through Failure of
"Silk Stocking" Wards to
Show Expected Strength
CHICAGO, April 4.—Carter Harri
son, democrat, was elected mayor of
Chicago today for the fifth time by
a plurality of 17,082 over Professor
Charles E. Merriam, his republican
opponent. The final count of 1340 pre
cincts gave Harrison 177,358 and
Merriam 160,276. Rodrlgueze, social
ist, received 22,294 votes. The pro
hibitionists casts 3000 votes.
In conceding his diefeat Professor
Mierriam said he is satisned with the
showing he made and it led him to
hope for a different result In another
contest. Scrutiny of the returns show
that Merriam was given nearly seven
per cent less than glvien Busse four
years ago, while Harrison ran more
than 17 per cent ahead of Dunne at
the last election.
The total vote reached approxi
mately 365,000 or about 40,000 more
than cast In thle last mayoralty con
test. In spite of this both sides
agreed that Merriam lost through
the failure of the "sjlk stocking"
wards to show the strength that had
been expected of them.
A democratic city council, with 41
democratic aldlermen and 29 repub
licans was chosen.
Defendant Was Discharged, But
Case Will be Appealed to U.
S. Supreme Court
.SEATTLE, April 4. —The supreme
court of tliur United States will sever
the gordian knot of Alaskan coal
claims as a result of an amicable
agreement reached by counsel for the
government and defense in the ilrst
of the fraud cases to go before the
jury. The case was that of the
United States anainst Charles Mun
day and others charged with conspir
acy to defraud the government of i
coal land in Alaska valued at more
than $100,000,000. The agreement Is
the result of a ruling of Judge Han
ford on motion by the defense last
week to dismiss the case on the prin
cipal ground that the land law of
1873 did not cover Alaska.
Judge Hanford sustained this con
tention, but overrules the motion on
the ground that the eovernment
might prosecute the defendants for
having conspired to cain title to the
land for the benefit of the Pacific
Coal and Oil company, an alien cor
poration. After Judge Hanford's
ruling the opposing counsel decided
to make ud the record upon which
the case can be reviewed by the su
preme court, so when court ODene l
today the Indictment was quashed,
defendants discharged, an exception
taken and arrangements for appeal to
the supreme court made.

Leaders in Movement, Men of
Worldwide Reputation Talked
in North Yakima
They Advocate the Epigram That
There be More Business in Re-
Ugi n and More Religion in
Business !
Two leaders in the Laymen's Mis
sionary Movement were in North Yak
ima yesterday and they made the most
of the limited time allowed them here.
Col. E. J. Halford, who was secre
tary to President Benjamin Harrison
and later a paymaster in tho army,
now vice-chairman of the missionary
movement, and J. Campbell White,
general secretary of the national or
ganization, met yesterday afternoon
with the pastors of the various
churches and later there was a gen
eral conference with representatives
from each organization.
Coast Towing Party
Messrs. White and Halford, who
with S. L. Taylor, general secretary
of the movement in the Methodist
Episcopal church, composed the party
that toured the states on the coast,
beginning March 11th at Los Angeles.
Tne idea has been to visit all the cities
in which conventions were held last
year, and some others where they did
not meet, confer with the leaders in
all the denominations on the subject
nt .missions, securing intensive, work
antl giving: Inotructon In methods. This
[is, In fact, institute work, carrying
with special instruction by past mast
ers In missionary methods.
Previous to the mass meeting in the
Christian church, which met at 8
o'clock, Messrs, Halford and White, H.
M. Gilbert and Hey, E. A. King dlnea
at the Yakima Hotel.
Satisfactory Conditions Met
Colonel Halford, speaking of the'
coast trip, said they had found condi
tions very satisfactory among the var
ious church missionary organizations,
but realized that it was necessary to
organize and systematize the work In
every way. The co-operation on the
1 part of those with whom they met
j was all that could be desired. From
Los Angeles the party went to Oak
land, San Francisco, Portland, Tacoma,
Seattle, Victor and Vancouver, B. C.
From the last named place they came
this way, stopping off here, on t"ie
way to Spokane. In each of the cities
thus far visited, two or three days
have been spent in conference with
the leaders. From here they will go
on to Spokane, and from there to
Billings, Montana; Fargo, North Da
kota; Duluth, Minn., and Chicago.
H. M. Gilbert was chairman of the
meeting at the Christian church last
evening. In his opening remarks he
told briefly of the movement and then
introduced the speakers.
Mexican Peace Promised.
EL PASO, April 4. —On the sur
face, peace negotiations did not ap

city between Francisco Madero and
representatives of Mexican govern
ment. To do this permission first

government as a warrant Is out for

neutrality laws. The next step to be
to secure safe transport for Madero
to El Paso from Mexican govern
ment, and It is known such a prop
osition has been made.
Sheriff's Force of Men Augment

Toppenish and Wapato
The chief of police of Wapato
brought Into the county jail yester
day a vagrant who was a cr ppie.
That town has no Jail, so It Is neces

trying to foist all the cripples In the
county onto him and he don't like
the idea, for he needs able bodle i

Peace Talk Is Futile Until That
Time Says F. I. Madero,
Interview in His Camp the Lead
er Says That the Inssurection
ists Are Preparing to Strike
Deadly and Decisive Blow
CHIHUAHUA. April 4.—(Near
Madero's camp.)— The declaratl.m '
that all peace talk is futile, so long 1
as President Diaz refuses to resign
and that the recent cabinet changes
have served only to encourage the
revolutionists, was made by F. I.
Madsro Jr., provisional president, in ]
an interview in his camp today. The
Interview was an amplification of the
one he gave the Associated Press a
few days ago.
Insurrection Spreading
"In all northern provinces." he |
said, "Insurrection Is spreading until
now the federals troops are confined
to the garrison towns at which tho
Insurrectos are preparing to strike
a decisive blow." Referring to his
rather and borther Gustave. who are !
reported to have initiated peace plans!

Would Not Trust Diaz
XL PASO. April 4. —Because of
Francisco Ma'ero. Jr.. does not trust
the word of President Diaz guaran
teeing him safety for a trip to El
Paso to discuss peace with his father i
and brother. Alfonso to,day deter-,
minced to make the trip to the big
riustlllos ranch 60 miles west of Chi-,
huahua. It Is not made public when
the start for the ranch will be made.
The aphis Is abroad In the land and
is working already on roso bushes and
fruit trees. Now Is the time to get af
ter him, before the leave begin to curl.
The ants, too, are busy, nnd this Is
a splendid timo to root them out be
fore increasing vegetation has hidden
them and makes discovery more dif

tho statement that the cottony scale
is at work on shado trees of tho city
and Is playing havoc with the cut
leaf maple. With tho pests as with
everything else a stitch in timo s ives

Building Material Salesman Tells
of Experiences in Yakima and
Also His Idea of Pasco
"Two-th rds of all the business I l
did last year SS a salesman of liulld-l
Ing material was done In the Yakima
valley," sail J. W. Martin of Portland,
who Is a guest at the Washington
hotel. I wasn't surprised when I
made up the totals but my house
was and couldn't understand It. And
I want to tell you of a little town
that you all laugh al that has you all
backed to the wall when It comes to
growth anil that is Pasco. You fol
luws can laugh and say what you like
about Pasco and declare that there
never will he anything to Kennew ck
but I want tn tell you to forget It.
Those towns are growing and vvery
salesman on the road will tell you so.
This valley is on" of the best places
In the country and those two towns
are the heaviest end of It right now.
"I c|(> not think that the business
In my line will be as heavy this ye ir
as It wns last. I see no indications of
It at the preesnt time. It will be a
good business, however, better hern
than In other parts of the northwest
and development will continue, there
Is no question of that,"
Pyman Harris, formerly of the I
X. L. firm of this city, one of th»
pioneer business hou<»-*s of North
Yakima and who Is now a resident of
Wenatchee, Is visiting here.
Various Sub-Committees Report
Satisfactory Progress With
Work Entrusted Them
Big Parade Will Probably Take
Place Friday Instead of Satur
day, and There Will be Excur
sions, Basket Picnics, Etc.
Provided the weather man does ht->
part and the frost does not slaughter
the buds, thl»re Is every prospect for
a highly successful first annual Blos
som Festival the week of April 15 to
"2. At a meeting of the general
committee yesterday morning in the
Commercial club rooms various com
mittees reported satisfactory pro
gress. The postal cards to advertise
the fete have all been sent out,
through school children, and Individ
uals, and It Is estimated that the
homes of the state have been pretty
well notified of the fact In this way.
Posters to be displayed in railway sta
tions and other public places, show
ing specimen apple trees in a burst
of bloom, arc to be distributed within
a few days.
Railrnnd Rales
In the absence of chairman A. B.
CI ne. J. F. Barton presided. Mr.
Ansart reported for the transporta
tion committee that .the Northern Pa
cific had agred to give rates of a faro
and a third from Spokane and from j
Seattli; and Tacoma. but had refuse-!
to extend these rates to Portland, or
to any of the cities north of Seattle.
This was a considerable dlsappoln!
ment. as when a number of the of
ficials of the Northern Pacific Wen
talking to Secretary James of the
fftmaitroißl club v few weKs agro in
regard to the matter, they were much
more liberal In tho ganeral trend of
their talk, though they made no
specific statements. The North Coast
will give similar rates on Its Walls
Walla-North Yakima line, having no
through connections which ennbl.
them to make rates for a longer dis
tance. Mr. Donald has promised rates
lor the Naches and Moxeo trips.
J. V. Payne of the finance commit
tee reported that over $1000 had ben-n
collected for the fund.
Change Arrangements
It is likely that the parade will be
given Friday afternoon Instead of
Saturday, as originally planned, since
It Is thought thnt a better turn out if
the school children can be obtained
In this way. Teachers will march
with the children only In cases where
th'-v are -vllling, and perhaps It will
not b3 deemed advisable to have
pupils under the fourth grndo march.
The transportation company will be
asked to give free rides to the school
children coming from a distance to
take part in the procession.
With the parade Friday, the basket
picnic to the Naches will be placed
for Thursday, and a basket picnic
at Sumach park for either Wednes
day or Suturday afternoon. Wednes
day evening there will b>o a conceit
by the Choral society and Thursday
evening an exhibition drill by the
lire department. Tho high school pro
duction of the ooera lolathc, will not
he given undwr tho auspices of the
Blossom Festival committee as
planned. There will be an excursion
to Zillah Wednesday.
A suggestion that blossoms he
placed on Pullman d nlng cars as nn
advertisement of the P.istlval was re
ferred to a committee.
