THE VOTE WAS QUITE CLOSE, T5 TO 63 Caucus Debated the Various Bills From 8 to 11:30 o’Clock Thursday Night—Speaker Cannon Is of the Opinion That Congress Will Not Ad journ for Ten Days. Washington, May 23—No bill to modify the power of the federal courts in the exercise of injunctions will be passed at this session of congress. It was decided Thursday night at a con ference of the Republican members of the house that to enact such a meas ure would be unwise. The conference was in session from eight o'clock un til 11:30. The various so-called anti injunction bills that have been intro duced were discussed and various amendments to them were proposed. Between eleven o'clock and the hour of adjournment three votes of tho caucus vcere cast. The first vote was on a motion by Mr. Fassett (N. Y.) to adjourn the caucus sine die. This motion was lost, 68 to 69. Fifteen minutes later Mr. Tawney (Minn.) moved to take a recess until Friday night. This motion also was lost, 62 to 61. At 11:30 Mr. Sherman (N. Y.) made a motion to adjourn sine die, and it prevailed by a vote of 75 to 63. Shortly after he had made his motion of adjournment Mr. Fassett was over come by the heat and closeness of the atmosphere in the chamber and was assisted to the lobby. There he faint ed. Several of his colleagues and em ployes of the house restored him to consciousness bv the annllratinn of cold water, and apparently lie fully recovered. After the adjournment of the cation* Speaker Cannon expressed the opinion that it would be eight or ten days be fore final adjournment of congress could be reached. He said: "We have a filibuster on which pre vents action on more than five or six bills a day. There are 29 measures now In conference and you can make your own estimate as to the time it will take no dispose of them. We are not going to turn tail and run. Pos sibly the senate can adjourn without the house, but I am under the impres sion that it would find some constitu tional obstacles in the way of its do ing so." Storm at St. Louis.

MAE WOOD’S DIVORCE SUIT IN NEW YORK COMES TO A SEN SATIONAL ENDING. PLAINTIFF IS CHARGED WITH PERJURY Justice O'Gorman Dismisses Complaint and Orders Miss Wood Held—$5,000 Bail Is Demanded, Which Plaintiff Is Unable to Give and Was Locked Up in the Tombs Prison. New’ York, May 23.—Mae C. Wood, whose suit for an absolute divorce from United States Senator Thomas C. Platt of New York has been on trial tn the supreme court here for several days, was committed (o the Tombs prison late Thursday after Justice O'Gorman had dismissed the complaint in her action and ordered her held in $5,000 ball on a charge of perjury. The decision in Senator Platt's favor and the sudden rnd sensational end ing of the suit came after a day which the defense occupied largely with the Introduction of expert and other tes timony attacking the authenticity of the documents by which the plaintiff was seeking to establish her alleged marriage to Senator Platt. A hand writing expert testified that in his opinion the body of the letter, in which Senator Platt was alleged to have admitted his relation as husband to the plaintiff was added after the senator’s signature had been affixed. More telling still for the defense was the depositions by engravers and stationers called by counsel Tor Sen ator Platt that the blank form upon which the nlleged Platt-Wood mar riage certificate was prepared, was not lithographed until three months after the date upon which the marriage of Miss Wood to Senator Platt was al leged to have taken place. Miss Wood was recalled to the stand in rebuttal. She was asked if, after hearing the testimony about the marriage certifi cate, she still reiterated that the de fendant gave her the certificate as sh'e previously testified. “I still reiterate it.” she replied. Justice O’Gorman turned to Miss Wood and pointedly questioned her. She repeated her assertion that the marriage occurred as she had stated. She admitted that Senator Platt never supported her, and when asked by the court if she did not consider it the duty of a husband to support his w ife, she replied: “I do, but as long as he was not enough of a gentleman to do so 1 never asked him to.” Senator Platt's counsel then moved for a dismissal of the complaint. It was forthwith granted by Justice O'Gorman, who, in rendering his de cision, said: "I can not credit the plaintiffs evt dence as to the alleged marriage, and the testimony as it impresses the court is that this is a most wicked design to support a false and fictitious claim by forgery and perjury.” Forthwith Justice O'Gorman ordered Miss Wood committed to the Tombs on the charge of perjury, fixing her bail at $5,000. At the -district attorney’s oillco Thursday night, it was said that Miss Wood's case would speedily be pre sented to the grand jury and pressed for trial If an indictment was found. At a late hour Miss Wood had not been able to furnish the bail demand ed in her case, and was still locked up in the Tombs. New York, May 2.1.—Mae C. Wood, the Omaha woman who was sent to prison Thursday in default of $5,000 on a charge of perjury, after her com plaint against Senator Platt, whom site had sued for divorce, had been dis missed. was still in a cell Friday. Ap parently no effort had been made to procure ball. Miss Wood seemed not at all per turM. "Do you intend to plead guilty In event of an indictment being found against you?" she was asked. “I'll rot first.” she shouted, the smile disappearing and her lips com ing together in a straight, tight line.

He deeded them his property on their proposition to support him for the re mainder of his life. One night last June a scuffle was heard in an upper room of the house. Huff was found dead in bed with the bed clothing very much disturbed. Rrtmmingstal! said that Huff had some sort of vio lent illness—colic or something like it, and accidentally choked himself to death with the bed clothing. The body of Huff was buried next day, and the apparent haste occasioned some com ment. In February of this year Smith Hor tlum disappeared.
