For a clean, bright farcical entertainment,
•'The Doctor," being presented at the Bijou
this week by John J. Burke and a company
of talented artists, compares favorably with
anything of the kind seen here this season.
A. O. Eliason, of the state university, has
gone to Topeka, Kans., as the representative
from the institution to the interstate oratori
cal contest, to be held in the opera house of
that city tomorrow evening.
Tomorrow evening the Stapleton company
will be back at the Metropolitan for the bal
ance of the week, including a Saturday mati
nee, with Belasco and De Mille's charming
comedy drama, "The Charity Ball." The
play has been more generally indorsed by the
best authorities than anything which these
brilliant authors ever constructed.
Minneapolis Underwriters Answer
Gen. Child*' Complaint.
The Minneapolis board of fire underwriters
has filed its answer in the district court in
the complaint of H. W. Childs, as attorney
general, on relation of C. H. Smith, insur
ance commissioner. The answer denies that
the Merchants' Board of Fire Underwriters is
a corporation, as alleged, or otherwise, and
alleges that if the said board was ever in
any manner organized it never had any right
to exercise or enjoy any of Its privileges or
franchises, and has never had any right to
transact any business. A further claim is
made that no part of the capital stock of the
Merchants' Board of Fire Underwriters has
ever been subscribed for, and no part of the
Btock provided for in the articles of incorpor
ation has ever been issued.
A point is also made, that if the Mer
chants' board ever equipped or operated a
salvage corps, it has since been abandoned,
sis has also any right or privilege which
they may have at one time enjoyed. There
fore the Minneapolis board asks that the re
lator be ordered and decreed to pay over to
It, all sums of money that may be recovered
by him from the defendant, the Fireman's
insurance company.

Lively Contest Over the Question—
Sculptor Fjelde Dead—Mrs. Per
kins' Salt Dismissed.
A meeting of the executive commit
tee of the Good Citizenship league,
followed by a general meeting of the
members of the league present, was
held last evening in the board of trade
rooms, Lumber Exchange building, to
hear the report of a committee on the
revision of the constitution. E. F.
Waite presided. Edward Savage, chair
man of the revision committee, report
ed a brand new constitution, in which
numerous changes were suggested
from the original constitution. The ob
jects of the league are stated as fol
lows: "The objects of the league shall
be to inform its members of existing
municipal conditions, and quicken their
sense of civic duty; to arouse and main
tain an intelligent public Interest on all
questions concerning the welfare of the
city; to encourage and secure honest
and impartial enforcement of law, and
to stimulate and influence public opin
ion towards the nomination and elec
tion of competent and trustworthy
persons for municipal office without
respect to national politics." Any male
voters may become members, if known
to be of the proper material. The offi
cers provided for are a president, five
vice presidents, secretary and treas
urer, with an executive committee of
forty members, comprising the officers
of the league, two members from each
ward in the city, and six members at
large. The constitution also provides
for ward branches, and each member
of the league is ipso facto a member
of the ward branch from the ward in
which he resides. The constitution
also provides that an officeholder of
the league shall be disqualified from
holding such office upon becoming a
candidate for any municipal office, but
such disqualification is removed by his
defeat at the polls, or upon the clos
ing of his term of office. Upon vote
of the executive committee it was de
cided to recommend the constitution as
read to the league for adoption. Rules
for the government of the executive
committee were also proposed and
adopted. The committee is to hold
regular monthly meetings, and sub
committees are to do the work of the
general committee.
The committee adjourned, and the
general league was called to order.
Upon motion • the constitution recom
mended by the executive committee
was adopted as a whole. The only
scrap occurred on the question of eligi
bility for membership. W. J. Dean
sprung the question by a motion that
the word "male" be dropped before
the word "voter." His idea was that
the women are soon to become voters,
and he thought they ought to have a
show. George Achard said the league
was designed especially for men, and
they did not want to be hampered by
the gentler sex. The debate was taken
up generally, and a rising vote showed
twelve In favor and thirteen against
receiving the ladles.
Judge Belden Dismisses the Big In
surance Suit.
When the case of Lora M. Perkins against
the Security Mutual Life association to re
cover $2,000 Insurance on the life of Mrs.
Hawkins was resumed yesterday Judge Bel
den brought It to an abrupt end by ordering
a verdict for the defendant. In announcing
his decision the judge referred to a number
of cases showing that it was not necessary
to submit a case to a jury unless there was
any real evidence to satisfy a Jury, and un
less there has been sufficient evidence shown
by the party on whom the burden of proof
rested to warrant the jury in finding a ver
dict on the evidence.
He then referred to the answers in the
application which are alleged by the plain
tiff to have been forged. The answers are
those in answer to the questions:
Q. Has the applicant any children?
A. Yes, one.
Q. What age?
A. Thirteen years. ■
The answers, said the court, were alleged
to have been forgeries by Mr. Garland. But
very scant evidence has been shown to prove
that Mr. Garland was an expert. Moreover,
the court held that the only extraordinary
thing about those answers was that they
were only a little lighter in color and this
same slight difference extends to many of
the other answers and even to the signature
of the examining physician. Therefore this
was not a case for expert testimony, and waa
not a question to be submitted to the Jury.
The court then referred to other cases as
to the point as to whether the answers were
warranties or representations. The court
stated that the answers in the application
as to place of birth were clearly shown to be
There was evidence assuming that Mrs.
Hawkins had -been born in Castile, Spain,
and it had also been shown that no relation
ship existed between Mrs. Perkins and Mrs.
Hawkins. The whole history of Mrs. Per
kins' life had been traced from her infancy
by incontrovertible evidence, and- It would be
a judicial farce to submit the question to the
Jury. Then as to the statement In the ap
plication that the applicant was twenty-five
years of age, whereas it had been proved be
yond a doubt that she was thirty-five, which
was corroborated even by the statement made
in taking out the marriage certificate.
Therefore, said the court, there is only one
thing possible to be done. It is my duty to
direct a verdict for the defendant, and it is
so ordered.
Judge Belden stated that it made no dif
ference whether the answers were warran
ties or representations, as it had been clearly
sfcown that even if representations they were
material and false, in which case they had
the same effect as warranties. In support of
this he cited the case of Perine vs. the Grand
Lodge of A. O. U. W.
Judge Belden assumed that it was really
Mrs. Hawkins had made the application,
though his remarks indicated that the whole
of Mrs. Perkins' story possessed very little
credibility. The verdict of the Jury was then
ordered for the defendant, and the jury dis
missed. An exception was taken by Mr.
Hall to the court's ruling, and a thirty days'
stay allowed.

State Grand Lodge 10 lefts Officers
for the Year.
The state grand lodge of Orange of Min
nesota is holding its annual convention in the
city. The first session which was called to
order yesterday morning at 705 Nicollet ave
nue was given over to the reading of reports
of the various state officers, which also took
some of the time of the afternoon session.
There were about sixty lodges represented.
The total membership In good standing Is
6,498, which is a gain of 1,276 from last year.
The chief business of the afternoon was the
election of officers with the following results:
State Grand master, H. Brown, of Duluth;
deputy master, R. C. Barton, of Minneapolis;
treasurer,, Romain Shere, of St. Paul; sec
retary, Edward J. Gill, of St. Paul; chaplian,
John Hardy, Minneapolis; delegate to the su
preme grand lodge in Philadelphia, in June,
O. Byoun, of Minneapolis. The convention
will close this mornng when all unfinished
business will be attended to. A musical and
literary entertainment and banquet was given
last evening by the lodges of the city to the
visiting brothers.

He passed away quietly, sinking gradually

Rev. Dawley Arrives.
Rev. W. W. Dawley, the new pastor of
Central Baptist church, arrived in the city
yesterday from Duluth. He was accompanied
by his two sons. His wife will arrive this
evening. Mr. Dawley's first act as pastor
here was the sad one of burying his thirteen
month's old daughter, who died last Febru
ary. The "remains were interred at Lake
wood. Mr. Dawley has been very unfortu
nate during his three years pastorate in Du
luth, as his whole family has, more or less,
suffered with sickness, Mr. Dawley himself
having been taken with typhoid fever. This
fact was somewhat of an incentive to his ac
cepting the call as pastor of the Central
Baptist church, as he thinks that possibly
Minneapolis may agree better with them.
Previous to going to Duluth three years ago
Mr. Dawley occupied the pulpit of the Wood
land Park Baptist church, in St. Paul, and,
consequently, looks upon his coming to Min
neapolis somewhat like coming home again.

ST. PETERSBURG, May s.—Apropos of the
visit of Li Hung Chang to St. Petersburg,
Prince Ouktoumsky, who traveled with the
Chinese statesman, writes: "The Chinese
envoy has delivered papers which signify
eternal friendship between the two great
neighboring states. Russia's interest Is mere
ly to hold China intact. We shall not per
mit any one to play the master In China,
and we shall not permit any one to attack
the country. If Russia protects China, she
protects herself." Coming from the quarter It
does these statements may be taken as wholly
representing the truth about the much de
bated relations existing between Russia and
China, no treaty but entire understanding.
Cures for Blusulngr.

seven such advertisements. One will serve

Greater Part of the Day Taken Up
by- a Continuation of Hill's Re
WASHINGTON, May s.—Senator Hill
took up the greater part of the time
in the senate today by a continuation
of his speech against the bond resolu
tion. Early In the day Mr. Peffer, au
thor of the resolution, announced that
he would try to force a vote tonight by
holding the senate in session until the
resolution was disposed of. It was evi
dent, however, that the senators were
not disposed to submit to the hardship
of a protracted or all-night session,
and Mr. Peffer did not carry out his an
nounced purpose. He stated, however,
that the resolution would certainly
pass tomorrow, which, however, i 3
doubtful, in view of Mr. Hill's ability
to speak indefinitely. Mr. Pettigrew
(Rep., S. D.) supported the bond resolu
tion and severely criticised the course
of the treasury department. He also
criticized Mr. Sherman for his recent
approval of the administration.
Some progress was made during the
day on the river and harbor bill by
taking it up in the morning
hour. At 2 o'clock the bill was laid
aside, thirty pages having been dis
posed of, and the bond resolution was
taken up. As Mr. Hill was about to
resume his speech, :Mr. Peffer, author
of the resolution, rose and said: "I
will ask the senate to remain in ses
sion until the resolution is passed."
Mr. Hill said he was willing to yield,
as a rule, but he did not propose to
be taken from the floor arbitrarily,
and he would not yield to Mr. Peffer.
Mr. Hill then proceeded with his op
position to the resolutions. He was en
deavoring, he said, .to prevent the sen
ate from making itself ridiculous. It
did that often enough, he added. This
resolution called for facts that were
already reported to the senate. "To
be sure," said Mr. Hill, "there Is no
law against senators making fools of
themselves, but they ought not to do
it needlessly. If you cannot comfife
hend the reports already made, then
resign your seats," he said, severely.
Mr. Hill then yielded long enough
to permit Mr. Gordon to give notice of
an amendment to the pending resolu
tions providing that an investigation
be conducted by the senate finance
committee, instead of by a special com
mittee of five senators, as originally
Mr. Hill, commenting on the recent
bond contracts, spoke of the fact that
Belmont & Co., Drexel, Morgan & Co.
and Seligman & Co. were those who
contracted with •< Secretary Sherman.
Then, as now, said Mr. Hill, the syn
dicate got the bonds. Men who had the
money invested it. The senator said
it was not that he cared anything for
Mr. Carlisle or for this administra
tion, but if these bond contracts were
to be paraded "on the stump" in the
coming campaign, then he proposed to
place the Sherman contracts alongside
the Carlisle contracts, showing that
the former were with the same bank
ers, "the same J. Pierpont Morgan that
you are throwing in Mr. Cleveland's
Mr. Hill yielded the floor temporarily
to Mr. Pettigrew for a speech which
was a succinct record of government
transactions for the last five years.
Mr. Pettigrew asserted his belief that
recent financial scares had been pur
posely worked up by the present ad
ministration in order to force congress
to pass administration measures, and,
after that to. compel financial transac
tions "to enrich the favorites of the
president, If not the president himself."
There had been, he said, a deliberate
conspiracy on tHe""part of the admin
istration to break down the govern
ment's credit. Mr.. Pettigrew spoke of
the part taken "by a former law part
ner of Grover Cleveland in negotiating
the bond contract with the Morgan
syndicate," and said that if some may
or or governor, or less favored individ
ual than a president had acted In this
way, "impeachrhent or criminal prose
cution would have followed at once."
Mr. Pettigrew t>elieved in a searching
investigation, which would lay bare
"the secret features of the bond trans
actions." A sharp controversy oc
curred between Mr. Pettigrew and Mr.
Hill as to what course Mr. Carlisle
should have pursued In awarding for
feited bonds, Mr. Pettigrew asserting
that the award to Morgan & Co. wag
"rotten and dishonest to the core." Mr.
Pettigrew also criticised Mr. Sherman
for his recent tribute to the adminis
"Who Is more competent to offer
such a tribute?" asked Mr. Hill, "than
the distinguished senator from Ohio,
himself a secretary of the treasury?"
"That Is a matter of opinion," re
sponded Mr. Pettigrew. "I do not doubt
that the senator from Ohio and the
Morgan syndicate will further proclaim
that the senator from Ohio is best au
thority that can possibly be found; so
long as he openly indorses the plunder
of the people and the robbery of the
The bond resolution was then laid
aside, Mr. Hill reclaiming the floor, and
Mr. Peffer having concluded not to
press for a vote tenight.
Mr. Allison asked when a vote on the
bond "resolution could be expected.
"Certainly tomorrow," answered Mr.
Peffer. I -r
"Then let a time, be fixed for a vote,"
said Mr. Allison. 9
Mr. Hill was quickly on his feet
again. "It wilP hi impossible," he re
marked, smilingly; "to fix a date now
for a vote." J ;i
The supporters Oof the resolution for
the investigation,-'-' however, now hope
to secure a vote" before adjournment
tomorrow. Senator Hill stated be
fore Mr. Pettigre\tf made his speech to
day that he would not desire to go on
for more thanaarti t hour tomorrow, but
he may find Mr.» Pettigrew's remarks
text for further comments. It is not
known to the managers of the resolu
tion whether other senators will de
sire to speak in opposition to the
measure, though it is considered pos
sible that Senator Vilas may. Senator
Hill, in speaking of the situation today,
said he had no disposition to filibuster,
and that he probably would not
have occupied as much time as he
had but for the fact that the bond
resolutions were taken up without giv
ing him due warning. The opponents
of the resolution believe it will be bo
modified before the final vote is reached
as to provide that the committee on
finance shall make whatever investiga
tion is to be made.

Two Women and Two Children
Killed in Brooklyn.
NEW YORK, May s.—As a result of an
explosion of a gasoline stove In a Brooklyn
tenement house today two women and two
children were so badly burned that they
died soon afterwards. Two other children
were also seriously burned. The dead are: Mrs.
Rebecca Cohen, Carl Cohen, aged two years;
Solomon Cohen, aged three years: Mrs. Pas
tern. The explosion occurred in Mrs. Cohen's
apartments while she was standing at the
stove, and the burning fluid ignited her cloth
ing, quickly enveloping her in flames. The
| terrified woman ran shrieking into the apart
i ments of Mrs. Pastarn, across the hallway,
and in the latter's attempt to release the
suffering woman her clothing was set on
fire. Then both women ran into the hallway,
where they were found by the firemen, who
carried them to the street. They died a few
minutes later. The clothing of Mrs. Cohen's
two children, Carl and Solomon, was also
ignited by the fire caused by the explosion.
i They were so terribly burned about the body
i and limbs that they died soon after being
1 removed to the hospital. Isaac Kusman, who
was passing the house at the time the fire
| broke out, ran up stairs and attempted to put
j out the flames, when a second explosion oc
curred, and he was struck on the head by
some substance, which cut his scalp open. He
was able to go home after his wounds were
dressed. Solomon and Rosie Pastarn, aged
respectively eight months and nineteen
months, the other two children, were badly
burned, and may die.
The California H< publican Conven
tion in Favor of Both.
SACRAMENTO, May 5.— The California
state Republican convention was called to or
der today by P. B. Cornwall, chairman of the
i state central committee. W. R. Arthur, of
Pasadena, was unanimously elected as tem
porary chairman. When escorted to the
platform Mr. Arthur said it was evident the
I convention had determined to send to St.
| Louis delegates absolutely pledged to McKin-
I ley. This statement was greeted with pro
j longed cheers. The convention then took
I a recess until 4 o'clock. When the conven
tion reassembled, after the appointment of
the usual committees, It adjourned until to
morrow morning. It is believed that silver
will receive some Indorsement.
More Light on the Jameson Raid
Into the Transvaal.
LONDON, May s.—Truth claims to have
unearthed additional details of the conspir
acy leading up to the Jameson raid, which
paint the participators in the plot in still
darker colors than have the disclosures
made by the Transvaal government. Truth
says it Is informed that President Kruger
possesses evidence that the intention of Dr.
Jameson was to march upon Pretoria first,
to seizo President Kruger, and then to pro
ceed to Johannesburg with the president a
In an editorial the paper dilates In bitter
terms upon the Jameson raid. It says: "The
main object of the raid was to annex. the
rich mining district of the Transvaal to
Rhodesia. It Is obvious that the first news
of the raid would cause a fall in shares. A
syndicate was formed Just prior to the raid
for the purpose of making large bear sales."
England Does Not Want Any War
Over Venezuela.
LONDON, May s.—Sir William Vernon
Harcourt, Liberal leader In the house I
of commons, made a speech tonight ;
at the banquet of the National Lib
eral club, in which he promised to support j
the government in probing the discreditable i
business Of the Jameson raid in South Africa !
to the bottom. He expressed impatience at i
the delay In the settlement of the Venzuelan |
dispute, and said he believed that the coun
try was anxious for arbitration, and no per
sonal pride or diplomatic obstinacy should be
allowed to impede the negotiations.
Ingersoll Says He Will Surely Be
OMAHA, Neb., May s.—Robert O. Inger
boll, In Omaha today,discussing politics, said:
"McKinley will be nominated at St. Louis j
and have lots of delegates to spare. The
people associate McKinley with protection
and they associate protection with prosperity.
They think that the hard times were created
by fooling with the tariff and they want good
times. They want McKinley and will have
him. Allison and Reed are good men—the
best kind—and would make excellent presi
dents, but they will have to wait. I see that
Manley, Quay and Clarkson are whistling
through their graveyards, but it is no use.
McKinley will beat the field and have at
least a hundred delegates to spare."
He Will Visit Minnesota and Other
Land Offices.
WASHINGTON, May 5.—A trip of inspec
tion to the land offices In Minnesota, Mon
tana, Idaho. California and Colorado will be
made during June, by Commissioner Lam
oreaux, of the general land office. The main
object is to secure a thorough revision of
methods throughout the service. One of the
main aims is to reduce the amount of cases
behind-hand in the surveying branch of the
.service. Since the beginning of the adminis
tration, the delay In attending to surveying
cases has been reduced from two years or
more to about one year. Commissioner Lam
oreaux believes this should be further re
duced to about three or four months with j
the new methods and the intelligent co-opera- j
tion of local officers. The tour, which will j
not be made at government expense, will be
begun during the first week In June, and ex
tend a few days into July. It will begin at
Duluth, Minn., and Crookston will be the

A Trying- Situation.
Boston Beacon.
Ignorance of Oriental etiquette sometimes
leads to awkward situations in fashionable
quarters. Lately an English lady received a
morning call from a Japanese gentleman,who,
instead of making his first visit very brief,
as she expected, stayed to lunch. After lunch
he still stayed on. while the lady grew ex
tremely weary of her visitor, and every min
ute expected him to leave. Dinner came;
the Japanese was still a fixture, and the host
took his turn at entertainment till he was so
tired that be retired to the smoking room
and left his wife In charge. At last. Just at
midnight, the Japanese departed, with most
abject and elaborate apologies for quitting
his hostess. Next day he confided to a friend
that he had never passed through such an
ordeal. According to Japanese etiquette, the
lady receiving the gentleman should give the
Blgnal for his departure, so he thought she
would never let him go. and finally he had to v
leave without her permission.
An English Laborer's Food.
Eminent medical authorities estimate
that an English laborer, engaged In
ordinary work, eats daily 18 ounces of
bread, 1 ounce of butter, 4 ounces of
milk, 2 ounces of bacon, 8 ounces of
potatoes, 6 ounces of cabbage, 3%
ounces of cheese, 1 ounce of sugar,
three-fourths of an ounce of salt.
They Wore Clearly Pointed Out, but
the House Instated on Four
Bis Ships.
WASHINGTON, May s.—The opponents of
four battleships sustained an overwhelming
defeat In the house today on the proposition
to accept the senate amendment to the naval
appropriation bill reducing the number to
two. Mr. Sayers (Dem. Tex.), ex-chairman
of the appropriations committee, made the
motion, and in its support argued that the
question presented was purely a business
one. and he appealed to the house not to
allow politics to influence its judgment. Ho
proceeded to contrast the appropriations of
the present session with the available rev
enues. The appropriations for the next fiscal
year, as they had passed the house, were
$£05,000,000, while the total estimated rev
enue was but $464,000,000. If no provision
were made for the sinking fund ($50,000,000)
the total outstanding direct obligations would
be $455,000,000, leaving a working balance of
only $9,000,000. But in addition contracts
I were authorized In the sundry civil bill, the
I naval, and the fortifications bills aggregating
I $90,000,000. In other words, there would be
; $>,000,000 to meet almost $100,000,000 of ex
penditures. With this situation staring con
gress In the face, he argued that it was wise
! to retrench.
Mr. Boutelle, chairman of the naval com
mittee, who replied to Mr. Sayers, thought
It unfortunate that "these business facts"
had not been brought into the house when
it was undertaking to regulate boundary
lines in South America. No suggestion was
made then that less than four ships should
be authorized. At that time also, he said, he
had the best of reasons for believing that the
senate would agree to four ships; Indeed, the
fear was that the upper branch of congress
would go further and authorize six.
Mr. Cummlngs (Dem. La.), in opposition to
Mr. Sayers' motion, criticised that gentleman
for proposing to surrender to the senate with
out firing a gun. He recalled the manner la
which the senate had forced the house to ac
cept its amendment to the last naval appro
priation bill, and to accept the tariff bill
"with all its errors." He argued that It was
time for the house to make a stand against
the arrogance of the "American house of
Mr. Cannon, chairman of the appropria
tions committee, took a strong position In
favor of Mr. Sayers' motion, on the ground of
the inevitable deficiency in revenues for the
next fiscal year. This congress, he said, was
mortgaging the future for $100,000,000. That
was the candid truth. That meant a charge
of 125,000,000 per annum for each year of the
next Republican administration.
"But we will raise additional revenue,"
suggested a Republican.
"Yes," agreed Mr. Cannon, "but It will re
quire eighteen months to write a new rev
enue bill on the statute books. In the mean
time, if we put a mortgage on the treasury
we will be obliged to borrow money to pay it
off. Gentlemen on this sido of the bouse
must understand this."
He did not want his motives to be misun
derstood. He stood ready to see public build
ings and public works in his section stand
still, If necessary, for the defense of the
honor of the country, but he desired first to
be convinced that the necessity existed.
Mr. Boutelle concluded the debate with a
brief protest against placing all the onus of
extravagance of appropriations on the naval
committee. The vote was taken by yeas and
nays. The Sayers motion waa defeated, 81
to 141. On Mr. Boutelle's motion the house
requested a further conference of the senate.
A special order was adopted to set aside
tcmorrow and Wednesday of next week for
the consideration of private pension bills,
ten minutes' debate to be given to each bill.
There are 405 private pension bills on the
calendar. Mr. Crisp (Dem.. Ga.) contended
that no bill could be intelligently considered
in ten minutes. Mr. Loud (Rep., Cal.) also
opposed the adoption of the order. The
claims of old soldiers, he said, were not so
sacred as to Justify their passage without
consideration. Mr. Henderson said that
when the hand of the administration was
held above the Interest of the old soldier
legislation was needed. If ten hours were
given for debate oh each bill, Democratic
tcngues, charged with venom and gaul,
vould be found to consume It. He hurled
back! the imputation that this rule was
brought In for campaign purposes, and Inti
mated that some of the obstructionists on
the other side found obstruction to pensions
a great campaign card in the South.
WASHINGTON, May s.—3enator Chandler
today circulated the following petition on the
Republican side of the chamber:
"The undersigned request that in case any
bill relating to internal revenue of the tariff
is considered by the senate at the present ses
sion, the committee on finance will move and
support the addition of a clause providing
for an adequate duty on wool."
In sending the petition to Senator Morrill,
chairman of the committee, Senator Chandler
wrote a note saying: "I think I am able to
say that all the Republican senator^ (and the
Populists as well) are in favor of putting a
duty on woo! whenever any amendment is
made of the present tariff law." The petition
was signed by thirty-one senators as fol
lows: Mitchell, of Oregon; Chandler, Squire,
Mcßride, Lodge, Hale, Prltchard. Pettigrew,
Hansbrough. Frye. Davis, Brown, Perkins,
Baker, Gear. Elkins. Shoup, Hawley. Wilson,
Nelson, Gallinger, Warren, Clark, Burrows.
Proctor, Sewall. Wetmore, Thurston and
Cullom, Republicans, and Peffer and Butler,
Populists. The petition was gotten up be
cause of a proposition to call up a bill for the
repeal of the provision In the present law for
the rebate of the tax on alcohol used in the
arts and in medicine.
Aenln-t the Cheese Bill.
WASHINGTON, May s.—The senate com
mittee on finance today granted a hearing to
persons who oppose the legislation provided
for in the house filled cheese bill. They op
pose the bill on the general ground that It
contemplated discrimination against the meri
torious industry, contending that only pure
materials were used in making filled cheese.
The committee postponed action.

An Effort Will Be Made Today ta
Ran Cam on All the
MILWAUKEE, Wlb., May 8.-Crowdi o*
strike sympathisers, largely composed of
boys, created numerous disturbances today.
In some places Henry C. Payne was hung In
effigy, young hoodlums stole the hats of non
union motormen, though there were pollca
officers on the cars, street cars were block
aded continually, and several cars were
stcned. Nobody, however, was seriously hurt,
and the strike as yet continues to be remark
ably free from any exhibition of violence.
Abcut 150 electricians employed by the com
pany are now on strike. While in no case
j was the number of men who quit large
! encugh to seriously cripple the work at the
> places they left, the addition of the men to
1 the body of strikers served to encourage tha
; latter. Thirty-four cars were run today on
the main lines. On thirteen fines no cars were
operated. One bundrod men from Minneapo
lis, St. Paul and Chicago were brought to
the city today by the company to take tha
places of the striking employes. Tomorrow
an attempt will be made to start cars on all
lines. One hundred special policemen will
guard the motors.
Not a man returned to work at nooon today,
the hour fixed by the street railway company,
when all employes were to report for duty or
be discharged. There Is no sign of weaknessl
! on either side. The street ear people are re-,
celving recruits from outside cities on every
train, and It is only a matter of time when
| the lines will be fully equipped.
The most serious disturbance since the
! strike was Inaugurated occurred tonight,
: when a mob of 3.000 men and boys attacked
three Farwell avenue cars near the East side
barns. It was the first attempt to run cars
: at night, and each one was crowded with po
: llcemen. The mob lined either side of the
track, and as the cars appeared hundreds of
; bricks and stones were thrown. Many pa
trolmen formed in a squad and repeatedly
charged the rioters. Several arrests were
made. The police then visited all saloons In
! the vicinity of the car barns, forcibly eject
ed the throngs of men In them and ordered
them closed. At midnight the riotous crowd*
had been dispersed. k
