Sessions of House and
■\\ ishixcton, Dec. (>. —Today's Dem
ocratic caucus directed the "steering
committee" to prepare an order of busi
ness whicli would present for the con-
Bideratiou ot the seuate the following
*■ oi legislation: A bankruptcy
bill, a oil! for the construction of the
Nicaragua canal, a currency bill, bills
for the admission of Arizona and New
Mexico, a biil involving the interests of
the Indian Territory, for the considera
tion of the joint resolution of the house
of representatives on the election of
United IStatea senators by the people,
and Mich lneasiir^s, including the «p
--propriation biil. as the "steering
committee" may deem important.
That in their report to caucus tlie
"steering committee" shall provide the
crier in which the above subjects of
teeislation shall be considered. The
caucus s\as in session from 2o'clock till
4:30 p. ni., and almost the entire time
was devoted to the discussion of the
first propcsition of Senator Daniels in
structing the committee on rules to
br.ng in an amendment for a cloture,
and the speeches were at times very
spirited, beualors Vest, Vilas, Berry
ai;d (it-urge made speeches favoring the
proposition, while Senators (jorman,
liuigan. Palmer, Harris, Pugh and oth
ers opposed it with vigor and warmth.
Cloture Defeated
'1 lie speeches were in the same vein
us those which have been made in the
senate, except that the speakers dis
cussed party questions with more free
dom, pointing out the iact on one side
that the Democrats would soon be Id the
minority in the senate and probably in
netd uf the protection which the pres
ent rules would afford, while on the
other side the advocates of cloture
urged the importance of the supple
mentary tariff bills, and admitted very
frankly that there was no possibility of
such action without a rule for the limi
tation of debate. The opponents of a
change evidently had the best of the
argument from trie beginning, it is
understood that they invoked the
ghost of the force bill, and urged
that if the Republicans should get
into power they would revive this meas
ure. Senator Gorman took the lead in
pressing these views in opposition to
cloture. Senator Palmer, who had here
tofore been an advocate of cloture, in
dicated a change of position, and made
*> vigorous protest aeainst the adoption
of the resolution, lie said the Demo
crats would lose their majority in the
senate within a few weeks, and said it
would be the acme of foolishness to tie
t!:iir hands at such a critical time.
The protest against the proposed
Change was so general that when a vote
was taken do one considered it neces-
Bary to ask for the ayes and nays. When
the cloture bill was defeated the friends
of the taritl bill gave up the fight, con
sidering it unnecessary to attempt to
revive their consideration in view of
the opposition of a majority of the Re
publicans, and because of the fact that
any determined opposition under the
rules would insure their defeat. Hence,
it is that those bills do not appear in the
cflicial list ot bills to be presented for
the consideration of the senate.
The order for the preparation, of the
currency bill by the finance committee
carries with it instructions to take the
recommendation of the president and
secretary of the treasury into consider
ation. The order is also broad enough
to include any other suggestion or a
financial character which may be pre-
Beuted. aiid the senators favorable to
silver, who were present at the caucus,
say that it is also understood that a
feasible proposition for the utilization
ot silver is to be included la auy curren

No meeting of the "steering commit
tee" has yet been called, and there has
consequently been no agreement as to
the order in which the bills agreed upon
shall be taken up.
Populnr Election of Senators Con-
Washington, Dec. 6.-The senate
held a brief session today and then ad
journed. Mr. Vest had intended to
urge action on his plan to secure clo
ture in the senate, but there was do
disposition among the senators to settle
the question at once, and Mr. Vest re
luctantly let the subject go over.
Upon the opening of the senate Mr
Gorman (Dem. 1 M<L) ottered a resolution
providing that when the senate adjourns

The president's message in response
to a senate resolution, submitting infor

citizen in Peru, was received.
Mr. Turpie (Dem., Intl.) then took the
floor for a carefully prepared speech on

"It has therefore been said that the

House Spends the Day in Arguing
the New Kailroacl Bill.
Washington, Dec. C— The entire
time of the house today was occupied in
the discussion of the railroad pooling
bill, to which there appears to be great
opposition. No action, however, was
taken on the bill today. Messrs. Cooper
(Fla.), (Jreshani (Tex.), Morse (Mass.)
and Daniels (N. V.) took part in the de
bate. The former directed his opposi
tion to the section giving the railroads
the power to carry questions relating to
the revocation of pooling orders into tho
courts, and offered a substitute giving
the interstate commerce commission ab
solute control over all pooling contracts.
Messrs. (Jresham and Morse favored the
bil!, while Mr. Daniels attacked it on
the ground that it would subvert thvi
objects of the interstate commerce law.
Mr. Cooper (Dem., Fla.), a member of
the commerce committee, declared the
bill had four important features. It
authorized and legalized railroad pool
ing, and in doing sf) it gave a nesv grant
of power to all the railroads of the coun
try; it provided amendments to the
procedure section of the present law
in prescribing rules of evidence (a good
feature); it changed wholly the crim
inal liability for discriminating rates,
and, lastly, it changed the remedies fur
causes of action. While he doubted the
advisability ot granting pooling powers
to railroads, he was willing to agree, if
such pooling should be allowed, it
should be under the direct control of a
responsible commission. He offered a
substitute to meet his objections to thtt
Mr. Cooper quoted from a speech
made by Col. W. K. Morrison, president
of the interstate coiL-merce commission,
in which the latter opposed the pooling
feature of the bill, unless the commis
sion was allowed absolute control of the
conditions of pooling.
Mr. Henderson (.Keu., Io.) asked
if the fact that small shippers under a
pooling system would be able to
get the advantage of the low rates now
given big shiupers would not justify
the passage of a law legalizing pooling.
Mr. Cooper replied that that was the
only consideration which could induce
him to vote to authorize pooling, but he
would not do so unless safeguards and
restrictions not contained in this bill
were provided to prevent the abuse of
this proposed enlargement of the char
tered powers of the railroads.
Mr. Cooper concluded at the end of
two hours, and was followed by Mr.
Gresham (Dem., Tex.), who believed the
bill should become a Jaw as framed,
with the clause givine appellate juris
diction to the courts incorporated in it,
because as soon as a move was made to
revoke a pooling order for alleged dis
crimination it immediately became a
judicial question which the courts
should settle.
The present law enabled the larger
trunk roads to cut rates -ami squeeze
the smaller ones, and. if the present
system continued, all railroads of the
country would, at no distant time, be
controlled by a few great corporations.
Mr. Morse (Rep., Mass.) spoke in sup
port of tlie bill, and Mr. Daniels (Rep.,
N. V.) followed in opposition. At the
conclusion of Mr. Daniels' argument
the house, at 4:55 p. 111., adjourued till
Bill Introduced Giving Permission

Washington, Dec. 6.—The destruc

Minnesota and Michigan in the summer
and autumn of leO-J, resulting in the
death of many persons and the de

iflasked Men Strike It Rich in
Holding 1 Up a Texas Pa
cific Train.
One of the Most Daring- Rob
beries Ever Perpetrated
in the South.
Pitiful Sequel to the Quadru
ple Poisoning- in Texas-
Day's Crimes.
Four VYohtit, Tex., Dec. 6.—The
east-bound Texas passenger train was
held up at a trestle seven miles west of
here today. The train was stopped just
as tho engine and express car had
crossed, the passenger coaches coining
to a standstill no the trestle, where the
passengers had no opportunity of get
ting out it they were so inclined, which
they were not, but only busied them
selves in concealing their valuables.
Several shots were tired from the front
end of the train and the passengers
were warned to keep their heads out of
the windows. The tram was detained
ten or fifteen minutes, during which
time those who caught a glimpse
of the proceedings on the oth
er bide of the trestle saw
tnree masked men with guns leveled,
marehiug the engineer and trainmen in
and out of the baggage car. When tiiey
finished their work the robbers made
the engineer back the train over the
trestle, and while it was crossing they
disappeared in a thick forest. The pas
sengers kept so close while the train
was being robbed that they did not
know much about what was going on,
and the railroad men and exuress offi
cials will not make any statements. It
is not known how much booty was se
cured. The robbers had possession of
the express car until they accomplished
their object. One fat package is known
to have been obtained. A train was
held up and robbed at this spot several
years ago by a gang under the lsader
shipof the notorious Joe Bunt.
In one respect the robbery was re
markable and sets a precedent. Tho
iron safe .of the messenger was thrown
from the car and carried off. Tne rob
bery is one of the most daring on rec
ord. It is learned from authoritative
sources that upwards of
8100,000 Wat Secured.
The train stopped at the water tank;
one man boarded it and covered the en
gineer and fireman, while the other two
looted the express car. Division Super
ntendent J. B. Paul was on the train:
It arrived here only fifteen minutes
late. J. M. Berry, of Dallas, was a pas
senger on the train.
'■There is not much of a story to tell,"
he said. "The whole procedure did not
occupy twelve minutes. A quarter of a
mile east of ttenbiook three masked
men held up the train. I don't know
how they did it. The first thing I
knew tne engineer threw the air
brake. After the train stopped I heard
a shot, about five minutes later I heard
anotlrer shot. 1 heard that the robbers
broke into the express car, but nothing
could be learned from the officials as to
the extent of the robbery. The express
messenger got off at Fort Worth, and he
would give no information. The rob
bery was so quickly conducted that the
passengers were not badly awed."
A $25,000 Swindle Brought to
Light in Pittsburg.
Pittsbubg, Dec. 6.—A fine-looking
man about fifty years of age, styling
himself Frank Johnson, hailing from
Chicago, came to this city six or eight
weeks ago and opened a commission
house on Liberty street under the name
of Kirkpatrick & Johnson. Today he is
among the missing, and many creditors
As the Kirkpatrick of the firm has
never been visible, It is supposed Johu
son used the name because of the honor
able standing it has in business circles.
The firm Hooded Western Pennsylvania,
Eastern Ohio and West Virginia with
circulars offering fanners and agents
commissions and salaries, considerably
better than other houses could afford,
for poultry and produce of all kinds.
The douse waa soon doing an immense
business, selling for cash only, and at
prices away below market quotations.
It appears that Johuson, on one pre
text or another, succeeding in staving
oft creditors, making it a rule to pay for
nothing until he had victimized his
dupes to the extent of thousands of dol
lars. Some of the commission men on
the street estimate the swindle at as
high as $',25,0U0; others say $10,000. An
execution has been issued and the firm's
effects will be sold tomorrow, when the
books of the concern may show the ex~
tent of the fraud.
Sad Sequel of a Qaadraple Poi-
soning fn Texas.
Gai.veston, Tex., Dec. 6.—Today at
10 a. m. the funeral of the Alberti chil
dren, Willie, Pell, Dora and Lizzie,
victims of poison at the hands of their
demented mother, occurred from the
family residence. The four white cas
kets were covered with beautiful
flowers and were conveyed to t n « Epis

into her father's arms and was conveyed
home. While this aad scene was trans
piring Mrs. Alberti, the mother, sat
stoically in her cell in the county jail,
seemiugly indifferent of her great
crime. The only regret she expressed
was that she had not given suflicleut
poison to kill all her children and then
taken a fatal dose herself. She still re
sents thb accusation that she is insane,
and is ready ami willing to take the
consequences of liur terrible ciiuie.
Chicago Blackmailer Trapped in
Novel Manner.
Chicago, Dec. <!. -A peculiar story of
alleged blackmail and unique detective
work in which a portable telephone
figured prominently, was developed to
day in the case of Attorney Charles
loas, who was held in heavy bonds by
United States Conmiissoner VVirt,
Charged with sending objectionable
letters through the mails. The plaintiff,
J)r. Peter Janss, a prominent phytican,
had For a long time, according to his
story, been paylnc loas varying sums
for the suppression of a disagreeable
bit of private history, and was finally
driven to desperation when his wife re
ceived a lett«er from the lawyer, loas.
the doctor said, frankly admitted writ
ing the letter, when no witnesses wero
present, but denied all knowledge of it
when others were about. At last at
the advice of Attorney Luthei Lalliu
Mills, Dr. Jauss fitted a small telephone
in his silk hat, with a slender gold wire
trailing behind which connected with a
telephone outside the lawyer's otlice, at
which, with two receivers, were sta
tioned a detective and a stenographer.
Entering the lawyer's office. Dr. Janss
declares iie easily induced loas to again
admit that he had written the letter
and demand more money. Then Dr.
Janss exhibited his telephone, explained
to the astounded lawyer that he had
been talking through the doctor's hat,
and armed with his evidence, secured
the arrest. The case will be tried
shortly by the United States authorities.
Virginia Grass Widow Asks Pro-
teetion I'rdia a Suitor's Ardor.
Richmond, -Va., Dee. 6.—\V. F.
Matthews, a prominent business man of
Lynchburg, was before the court here
today upou the complaint of Mrs. Kale
McFarlan. She said he was a suitor of
hers who pressed his suit so violently
that she feared him, and asked the court
to protect her. It appeared from the
evidence that Mrs. McFarlan and Mr.
Matthews met each other isst summer
in South Dakota, where she sot a di
vorce from her husband and he one
from his wife. Their trouble started in
Lynchburg in October, when Mrs. Mc-
Farlan was there visiting some rela
tives. Mr. Matthews, according to Mrs.
McFarlan, called on her and proposed
marriage, and on being refused pulied
a pistol and shot at her. Afterward he
went to the Keeley institute in Mary*
land, and correspondence was kept up
between them. Air. Matthews was put
on the stand, and told a very different
story from the one related. He admit
ted that he was very much fascinated
with Mrs. McFarlan, said that they had
been quite intimate, that he had spent
SO.oooon her, and that they had lived
together as man and wife. This the
widow indignantly denied. He was at
one time vice president of one of the
lanks in Lyuchburg.

Rumor That Senator Daniel Will
Knter the Ministry.
RiCHMOxn. Va., Dec. C—The rumor
that Senator Daniel was to enter the
ministry brings out the following state
ment from Dr. John S. Latterly, a
prominent divine of the Methodist
"Senator Daniel was brought up by
Mrs. Warwick, of Lyachborjr, a pious
woman, whose great ambition was that
be should enter the ministry,and Judge
Daniel, the senator's father, was per
fectly willing that his son should follow
tho divine calling. The senator, as a
lad. experienced, it is said, a distinct
call to preach the gospel, and had not
tho war come on he would
certainly have gone into the min
istry. But he entered the army
whpn only sixteen years of ago, and so
distinguished himself that he was
forced into public life when the war
ended. But he has always had a desire
to preach, and this fact'is well known
to his intimates. When he was a mem
ber of the Virginia legislature in the
days of readjustment he Wtt on inti
mate terms with Key. J. J. Hall, a
member from Princess Anu, who was a
local preacher and a man of great piety.
Senator Daniel admired him, and the
Iniluence of Mr. Hall ullVcted him
greatly. It is said that he repeatedly
told Mr. Hall that he would cheerfully
give up all his worldly ambitions if he
could return to the days of his youth
aud follow out his inclination and his
determination at that time to be a hum
ble minister of God."

The Lover of Miss Ging 1 and
His Brother Placed Un
der Arrest.
County Officials Claim to
Have a Lot of Excel
lent Evidence.
Attempt May be Made to Con
vict Adpy Directly With
the Murder.
Harry Hayward was arrested in Min
neapolis last evening shortly after 5
o'clock on a warrant issued by County
Attorney Nye. Inspector Doyle made
the arrest, and Hayvard was taken to
the central station, where he passed the
night. The warrant charges him with
conspiracy to commit murder for the
purpose or obtaining the moneys accru
ing to the life insurance policies on the
event of the death ot Catherine Ging.
Atliy A.llayward, his brother, is also
under arrest, though he was uot placed
in a cell until 11 o'clock last night. He
was allowed to communicate to no per
son, save in the presence of Inspectors
Doyle, Lawrence and Hoy. They were
his shadows. He is held on practically
the same charge as that which binds his
brother.though no specific charges have
been formulated against him.
Aii attempt was made when Harry
was arrested to secure an interview, but
he informed the Globe reporter that he
had been instructed by his attorneys,
Messrs. Hale & Morgan, to keep silent.
There was nothing he could add to what
he had already given out, he said.
Tliird .Wan Wanted.
It was staled last night by the county
authorities that there were others im
plicated, or supposed to be implicated.
A third man is wanted, but as to who
this third party is they decline to state.
It Is understood the theory ot the man
with the iron gray mustache is nothing
but vapor, and that the real person is a
young fellow not over twenty-eight
years of age. He had a light mustache,
it was said last night, and Min
neapolis was not his home. He
came here aud played off the swell.
Whether there is any truth in this
statement remains to be seen. So many
stories have been floating around and
given out by the police that but little
credence can be placed in anything re
ported in relation to the Catherine Ging
murder. In connection with the above
it may be stated that the Globe's in
formant remarked that when the truth
is known it will include a number of in
teresting items, like, for instance, the
burning of buildings for the insurance
aud the robbing of houses.
There is so much mystery — large
chunks of it, in fact—lloatinu: around
police headquarters that it will be re
freshing and a decided relief when the
murderer is landed. One city oflicia'
stated yesterday that the mayor and the
newspapers would be the responsible
parties if the murderer escaped justice,
and there is more truth than poetry in
his remark.
The office of the county attorney con
tains some pertinent information re
gardine: the murder, though the exact
nature of it cannot be obtained. It was
on an affidavit signed by Assistant
County Attorney Hall that the warrant
for Harry llayward's arrest was issued.
Early yesterday morning Mr. Hall and
Inspector Hoy were together, and came
upon, it is said, some very important
news. It was then decided that Hay ward
should be arrested, and the advisability
of bavins it done when lie arose from
his bed in the morniiur was discussed.
It was, however, concluded that he was
safe, and that, perhaps, it would be bet
ter to postpone it until U.e afternoou.
Mayor Eustis in the meantime had
taken llayward sonewhere in a hack —
to do a little more "sweating"— aud
when the time for Uayward's arrest
came around it was found necessary to
await the return of the distinguished
city functionary.
It is maintained that llayward in his
statements to the police was mconsist
leot and contradicted himself. His
anxiety to have Miss tiiiig have her
life insured so that he could give bet a
loan on it, and the peculiar manner of
turning over to her the *7,iXM in cash,
and, in fact, his peculiar connection
with the young woman, lead the author
ities to believe they have iv his per
son a
Link to the .%\\ (til Murder.
He was in a great hurry also to have
the insurance authorities notified of
Catherine's death, and when asked it it
was not a little out of place to do so un
der the circumstanceH, he remarked
that "It is only a matter of business."
The notes given by Catherine to liay^
ward were lound yesterday in the vault
of the trust compauy. They weiw in
Adry's box, and Mayor Eustis, who
called there ana asked to see them,
placed them in his pocket and kept
them, in spite of the protests of the
trust company's officials. Hayward,
however claims to have given her about
il),500, and he has notes for only $7,000.
I illy Humors Alloat.
It is hard to conjecture what the re
sult of Adry Hay ward's arrest will be.
Tliere were ugly rumors afloat, which
were given partial color by the county
authorities, to tho effect that nn attempt
will be made to connect him with the
murder direct. It is said they suspect
him of boine the man who took the
drive with Catherine. His description
answers that of the man a num
ber of people have testified to
having seen with her. lie U
heavy set, wears a blonde mustache,
wears pointed shoes, is supposed to
have been thoroughly acquainted with
her, though ho denies such to be the
case, and to have made statements that
may be twisted into appearing as

the murder than lie professes to have.
That he is a man of cool nerve waa
demonstrated last night when he was
undergoing a rirld cross-examination
at the hands of the county officials. He
even smiled at times.
That he should have acted sostransrely
indifferent to (he fate of his brother is
considered by the police to be signifi
cant, lie did not bother himself to call
at the police station when his brother
was there under the cross-fire of the
police, in tact, he did not appear there
until Wednesday noon, a day and a half
after the arrest of Harry. When tho
latter was released and came to his
office bis brother merely nodded to him,
and not a word was passed regarding
the exciting events or the part that
Harry had played in them. Daring
Wednesday night, however, they passed
three hours together in Adry's room at
the Ozark.
There is a contusion on Adry's face,
on the right cheek bone, below the eye,
which looks a3 though it might have
been caused by a blow.
During his examination at the county
attorney's office last night Mr. liny ward
Sr., the father of the two boys, re
mained seated in an outer room. He is
an old man, with long gray beard. Ho
appears to be very much concerned
about his boys ana asked to be present
during the cross-examination, but this
was denied him.
Adry maintained stoutly last night
that during Monday evening he went
from his Hat, which is on the lower floor
of the Ozark, to hia father-in-law's flat.
He went over there at about B o'clock,
and remained there reading the papers
until about <J o'cioi-k. His father-in
law is W. 11. Chamberlain, and he re
sides at 1223 Hennepin avenue.
Adry declared that although Cather
ine Ging lived at the Ozark he did not
remember to have ever seen her. Had
he seen her he was not aware who she
was. She usually left the building at
an early hour every morning to go to
her dressmaking parlors, and this fact
olone precluded his seeing her.
Police Are Sanguine.
The police last night appeared to be
sanguine that they would soon be able
to unravel the dreadful mystery. They
say that the "third man" will "be forth
comiug sooner or later. In connection
with this "third man" it is said the po
lice lay considerable store to the fact
that several weeks ago Harry Bayward
went to Chicago In company with a
gambler, and that he lost £3.000 there
aguiust the faro bank. It is hinted thai
perhaps the "third man" was arranged
for in the Windy City at that time, bur.
of course, they do not come out and
boldly declare that Ilayward was the
person who arranged for his appearance
in tliis city.
The people "with clues" were as
plentiful yesterday as on the preceding
days. A fourteen-year-old boy, who
said he lived at Camdcn Place, called
on Chief ot Police Smith ami said be
knew who the murderer was and that
he had seen the man and could identify
him. He was shown a cigarette picture
and asked if the woman resembled the
one he saw with the murderer. Ho at
i once delated that the cigar-*
ette actress was the very woman
he saw out riding the (night of
the murder. Equally as ludicrous
events occur every day at police head
quarters, and the man without a "clue' 7
is a rare bird. C. B. Garritt, of St.
Paul, called at Headquarters last night
and declared that a week ago last Sat
urday he saw a woman, who answers to
to the description of Catherine Gins,
accompany a man of stocky build, etc.,
etc., to an assignation house opposite
the capitol building on Wabasha street.
People who saw the young woman a
year or more ago come in with their
stories. All are ea"ger to have their
clues and theories worked out by the
lie Proves That Hay ward Was at
His Residence.
One fact is established beyond a
doubt. Harry Hayward could never
have committed the crime himself, If
it is proved that he was implicated at
all, it will bo simply as one of the con
spirators. The word of no less a re
spectable citizen than C. J. Bartleson,
one of the prominent attorneys of the
city, establishes this fact beyond per
adventure. Mr. Bartleson granted the
Globe an interview last night, the first
that liH has given to any newspaper
since suspicion was first fastened upon
young Hayward, and in the interview
he gave the circumstances of the call of
you tic Hayward, and his invitation to
go to the theater.
"It was shortly before five minutes of
8 when Mr. Hayward called," said Mr.
Bartleson in answer to a reporter's
query. "There is no doubt on this
. point, for when he called and asked my
daughter to accompany him. she de
clined, thinking it was too late. My
wife suggested that they would be in
plenty of time, and the hour was called
into question finally. The time he
called was very nearly five minutes toS,
and that is capable of proof."
"Did Mr. Bayward appear at all out
of the ordinary, or was there anything
unusual suggested by his actions?" was
the next leading question asked.
"lie appeared perfectly jovial, and
was as pleasant as could be. There is
one thing certain about ir, Hayward
could not have been connected with any
devilment of the sort personally on that

and the enure statement in refereuce to
it is a fabrication.
