For the First Time the Popular
Branch of Congress Will Take
Official Part in the
WASHINGTON, Feb. 28.—The prepara
tions for the inauguration of President
McKinley next Monday are rapidly near
ing completion, and unless all signs fail,
there will be a larger crowd of strangers
present to witness the ceremonies than
Washington has seen in many years.
The general Inaugural committee has
been hard at work for more than a
mouth perfecting the arrangements and
the spectacular features of the celebra
tion, as well as the general arrangements
made for the occasion, will be on an ex
ceptionally fine scale.
Although Pennsylvania avenue will be
illuminated during the three nights of
the 4th, sth and tali of March as rarely
before, a special feature will be made of
that part extending from Fifteenth street
to Seventeenth street on the north front
of the White House grounds. This sec
tion has been designated "The court of
honor," and many special features of il
lumination will be introduced.
Officers having government buildings in
charge are putting in place special dec
orations in honor of the occasion.
Commander Baird, superintendent of
the state, war and navy department
building, lias made an interesting con
tribution to the special decorations. He
has placed electric lights forming the
well-known badges of the Eighth and
Ninth army corps, as used during the war
of the rebellion, on the east pavilion of
the great granite tri-department build
ing. President McKinley, as a major in
the arm:.-, served in both these corps in
the civil war.
Word.was received at the navy depart
ment today that the training ship Dixie,
which is flagship of the fleet ordered to
take part in the inaugural ceremonies,
left Hampton Roads this morning for
Alexandria. The old warship Hartford
also is within about the same distance
of the capital. These two vessels prob
ably will anchor off Alexandria tonight
or tomorrow morning.
The Lancaster and Topeka undoubtedly
■will reach the same rendezvous Sunday.
It has been decided at the navy depart
ment to keep these vessels off Alexandria
and to bring their crews to this city by
ferryboats. The big monitor Puritan is
at the Washington navy yard and will
remain there until after the inaugura
Representatives of the various veteran
organization who yesterday, through
Gen. Daniel Sickles, declined to partici
pate in the inaugural ceremonies because
they were dissatisfied with the place as
signed them in the parade, today de
clined an offer of Grand Marshal Gen.
Francis V. Greene to send a guard of
honor of twenty men from each local
post to act as an escort to the president.
The veterans declined to have any part
in the ceremonies unless this invitation
were extended to all members of the vet
eran organizations, both local and visit
ing from other cities.
The inaugural committee has complet
ed every detail of the programme. Tho
events to mark President McKlnley's seo
ond induction into office have been out
lined as follows:

The inaugural ceremonies proper for
the first time will be conducted by a joint
committee of the senate and house, tho
custom heretofore having been to leave
the conduct of the inauguration entirely
In the hands of the upper body of con
gress. At 11 o'clock Mr. Roosevelt will
take the oath of the vice presidency in
the senate chamber In the presence of
President McKinley and a distinguished
company. After the delivery of his in
augural address the vice president will
administer the oath of office to the sena
tors-elect. At noon the oath of office will
be administered to President McKinley
by Chief Justice Fuller, in front of the
main entrance to the capitol, where a
stand for this purpose has been con
structed. The president then will deliver
his inaugural address. He will take
his lunch at the capitol, before heading
the brilliant inaugural parade Up Penn
sylvania avenue to the executive man
sion. Gen. Francis V. Greene will head
tho parade as grand marshal.
President McKinley will follow, escort
ed by Troop A, of Ohio. The body of
the parade is divided into two grand di
visions, military and civic, and will be
a notable pageant in many respects. A
company of volunteer troops from Porto
Rico will form a part of the first brigade
and be an attractive feature of • the
parade, as will a large detachment of
sailors and marines.
The grand inaugural ball, which will
be held in the great court of the pension
building, will be the social feature of th.
occasion. Large amounts of money are
being expended In floral and other decor
ations, and the committee having this
part of the programme in charge have
r.o doubt that this great' room will eclipse
In point of beauty and brilliancy anything
Washington has seen.

ATLANTA, Ga., Feb. 28.—Mrs. C. A.
Buchanan, wit:} of a well known jeweler,
living in Spring street, in the heart of
a prominent residence section of the city
and within two blocks of the governor's
inan_ioi], was the victim today of an
outrage which has caused much excite
ment in Atlanta.
Her condition tonight is critical.
Mrs. Bacbanan was compelled at the
point of a pistol, held by a burly negro,
who stealthily entered the house, when
She was alone, to give him her purse,
containing $5. r 7
The negro then said he wanted some
breakfast, and when Mrs. Buchanan said
there was nothing cooked, command
her to cook something, and while she
was engaged in this, he stood with his
pistol constantly pointed at her.
After the food had been placed on-the
table, the negro seized Mrs. Buchanan
and bound her to a bedstead. He then
ate his breakfast. When he had finished,
he gathered some paper and placing it
under Mrs. Buchanan, set fire to it.
Mrs. Buchanan kicked the lire away,
but the negro threateningly told hei.not
to do so again, and replaced the fire
which was now blazing vigorously under
his victim. The negro then quickly ran
from the room and jumping through a
rear window escaped. Mrs. Buchanan
again kicked the burning mass from her
and by severely wrenching her wrists,
managed to free herself. She ran to the
front door of the house and by her
screams attracted several persons who
assisted her in extinguishing the flames
before they had obtained much head
Mrs. Buchartan told what had hap
pened, and almost immediately relapsed
into a state of extreme nervousness, and
was unable to tell anything further than
give a brief description of her assail
ant. The entire detective force, with the
assistance of several policemen and
bloodhounds, are looking for the negro.
About noon, Mrs. Buchanan relapsed
into a comatose state and has been un
able even to recognize her friends
around her bedside The assault of Mrs.
Buchanan is the latest of a series of
crimes in the past few days in which
negroes have robbed and assaulted white
women, and <scaped.
NEW YORK, Feb. William M.

Soon after 4 o'clock this morning Mr.
Evarts suffered a relapse. He became

Mrs. Scudder.-
Mr. Evarts was eighty-three years old.
For several years past he had been with
out the use of his eyes, and he was
otherwise so feeble that he was unable
to leave his home. He was the nomi
nal head of the law firm of Evarts,
Choate & Beaman, although for many
ears he had not been in active prac
Mr."Evarts was secretary of state In

COLUMBUS, 0., March I.—With ho
dimuniticn of the wonderful nerve that
has been characteristic of the man since
the time of apprehension for the pre
meditated murder of Charles Lane last
August, Rosslyn Ferrell at 12:06 this
morning walked calmly to the electric
chair in the Ohio penitentiary and ex
plated his crime.
Up until 7:30 yesterday evening Fer
rell was in company with his three
brothers in his room at the penitentiary.
At that time the brothers were asked to
retire and Reverend Fathers Kelly and
O'Reilly entered the room and remained
with Ferrell to the end.
They administered the sacrament in the
early part of the evening, and the rites
had hardly been concluded when Ferrell
proposed a game of checkers with one of
the clergymen. Tiring of this after a
while,he played his guitar and sang until
he was summoned to the death chamber.
He walked into the room as calmly as if
he was merely a spectator. His face did
not change color, and his steps were firm
and resolute. He sat down Jn the elec
trocution chair at 12:06. He was asked
if he had any last message and replied
in a voice full of strength and without
tremor: "I have nothing to say."
The officials made the last preparations,
the fatal current was turned on, and at
12:09 he was declared dead.
LINCOLN, Neb., March Fire which
started in the living rooms' of the war
den In the main building of the state
penitentiary at midnight last night
seems certain to destroy the entire main
building, together with the cell house an
other buildings. Just alter 2 o'clock this
morning a telephone message came say
ing the room in which the telephone
instrument was was in flames and must
be vacated.
This cuts off the only means of imme
diate communication with the prison,
which is nearly four miles from the busi
ness district of the city.
Between 1 and 2 o'clock, however, a
message from a member of the Lincoln
fire department by telephone said the
penitentiary was doomed and the fire
was spreading.
Before the flames had gained great
headway Warden Davis gave orders to
release the convicts from the cells and
march them to the prison yard under
double guard. The removal waS accom
plished safely and without disorder.

Conference Reports Adopted iv the
Lower Branch Included Also
That on the War Reve
nue Reduction Bill.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 28.—The serenity
in today's session of the senate was in
sharp contrast with the tempestuous
nature of yesterday's session. A number
of bills were passed. - The' river and
harbor appropriation bill carrying ap.
propriations of more than $50,000,000 was
passed without a word of discussion
and the senate adopted the conference
report on the war revenue reduction
measure without disturbing in the least
the mill pond smoothness of the pro
Final conference reports were made
and agreed to on the diplomatic and
consular and agricultural appropriation
bills and another conference on the
postolfice bill was ordered. Conference
reports on several other measures were
agreed to and several bills of a minor
chaiacter were passed.
The last hour and a half of the ses
sion was devoted to the consideration of
the sundry civil appropriation bill.
An effort was set on foot in the senate
today to add the house omnibus bill with
numerous additions to the sundry civil
bill, a san amendment, and a meeting
of the committee on public buildings and
grounds was held to decide upon a meas
ure. Conferences with leading senators,
however, convinced those interested that
it would be impossible to hold their
amendment in conference. They there,
fore abandoned their effort to secure the
enactment as an amendment, and re
newed their work looking to the passage
of the house bill. They received strong
assurances that that bill would be al
lowed to become a law with the one
addition of the proposed increase in the
Indianapolis public building.
When the senate convened today the
president pro tern., Mr. Frye, presented
a letter from the Marquis of Lansdowne
expressing the appreciation of his
majesty, King Edward VII. for the reso
lution of senate adopted on the occasion
of the death of Queen Victoria.
A resolution was adopted, authorizing
the committee on finance to make an in
vestigation of internal revenue, customs,
currency and coinage matters and to re
port to the senate.
Mr. Pettigrew's resolution to discharge
the committee on education and labor
from consideration of the eight-hour
labor bill and make the bill an immediate
order in the senate, was laid before the
senate. Mr. Pettigrew's colleague, Mr.
Kyle, is chairman of the committee on
education and labor. Mr. Pettigrew de
clared that the committee was incompe
tent in Its duties as a committee. He
had read a letter from a representation
of the Federation of Labor, criticising
the committee for not taking action upon
the bill.
Mr. Piatt (Conn.) made a point of
order against the resolution and it was
sustained by the chair.
Mr. Pettigrew then offered a new reso
lution, providing merely that the com
mittee be discharged from consideration
of the resolution. It went over.
A resolution previously offered by Mr.
Allen (Neb.) calling upon the secretary
of the navy for copies of Gunner Charles
Morgan's letter to Rear Admiral William
T. Sampson seeking promotion and the
admiral's ' indorsements - thereon, to
gether with all correspondence bearing
upon the matter, was adopted-
The conference report on the military
academy appropriation bill was agreed
to. A conference report upon a bill re
lating to the location of homesteads upon
the Fort Fetterman military reservation
in Wyoming also was agreed to.
The conference report on the measure
creating a commission for the adjudica-
tion of Spanish war claims in accord
ance with article 7 of the treaty of Paris
was agreed to after Mr. Butler (N. C.)
said he feared the enactment of the law
would inaugurate a raid upon the treas
ury and Mr. Foraker had replied that
the total amount of claims now on file
was less than $20,000,000.
Bills were passed as follows: Authoriz
ing the' Citizens' Bridge company to con
struct a railroad and wagon bridge across
the Mississippi river at Burlington, Io. ;
authorizing the construction of a bridge
across the Cumberland river at Carthage,
Term.; authorizing the construction of a
bridge by the . Texas & Pacific railroad
across Red river at Turnbulls island,
La.: authorizing the construction of a
bridge across Pearl river at Monticello,
The senate agreed to the house amend
ments to a bill "for the relief of settler.
under the public land laws to lands with
in the indemnity limits of the grant to
the Northern Pacific Railroad company,"
thus passing the measure. A house bill
to" refund excessive postage paid on cer
tain newspapers was passed, and also a
bill amending the laws-relating to the
taking of timber from public lands, so
that the restrictions shall not apply to
the south slope of Pryor mountains, in
The conference report upon the bill
amending, an act to provide temporarily
for revenues for Porto Rico and to in
crease the salary of the commissioner of
education was adopted.
A conference report upon a bill to pre
vent the failure of military justice by
requiring the attendance upon court-mar
tial of civilian witnesses was agreed to.
Bills were passed as follows: Granting
a charter to the general federation of
women's clubs; amending the - statutes
in relation to the fees of United States
commissioners and . enabling deputy
clerks of United district courts to ad
minister oaths.
Mr. Chandler gave notice that on Sat
urday evening at 8 o'clock he would ad
/dress the senate on the resolution de
claring, that William A. Clark was not
duly and legally elected to the senate.
The house cleared the decks today of
a number of important conference re
ports without much difficulty. The con
ference report on the war revenue re
duction bill proved generally acceptable
to both sides and was adopted without
division. Mr. Richardson, the minority
leader, acqulesceel in It, as the best thing
that could oe done, although he stated
that the minority still believed the war
taxes should be reduced $70,000,000. Final
reports on the diplomatic and consular
and agricultural appropriation bills were

Charge** the Governor With Lack of
Gratitude for the Court's Stand ;
During the Late Elec
tion Contest.'
. LOUISVILLE. Ky., Feb. 28. — Strong
statements made by Gov. Beckham in in
dorsing the pardon. he granted today to
Ed Alvey, convicted in the criminal
court at Louisville of setting up a game
of chance and given two years in the
penitentiary, had an extremely sensa
tional aftermath in the criminal court
today. Gov. Beckham was denounced to
the court by R. C. Kinkead, who was one
of: the attorneys that prosecuted Alvey,
and the executive was the subject of ji
long address to the grand jury by the
Judge of the court. Alvey was convicted
on state's. evidence turned by three men
who . were indicted with - him, and par
doned by the governor on affidavits which
the governor thought established that
Alvey was a subject of .discrimination.
In brief, Gov. Beckham charged that Al
vey was convicted to suppress competi
tion in gambling in Louisville. lif his of
ficial indorsement on the pardon, grant
ed Alvey, Gov. Beckham says:
"This is the most barefaced and In
excusable case of -judicial and political
persecution that has ever ._ come before
my notice. By a bold and shameful con
spiracy, this man Alvey has been se
lected as the helpless victim, while oth
ers equally as guilty, or more so,; who
seem to bask in the sunshine* of official
favor, are allowed absolute -immunity
from prosecution in the Jefferson crim
inal court. ._
. "This warfare seems to have been in
spired . not by an intention to suppress
gambling, . but by a desire to destroy
competition in that business. The pa
pers before me show beyond douot that
this man was convicted upon evidence
secured by one of the most infamous
bargains ever tolerated in any court."
R. C. Kinkead, who was counsel pros
ecuting Alvey, considered that refer
ences • to an "employed prosecutor" in
Gov. Beckham's pardon indorsement re
flected on him, and.today in the criminal
court, on motion of Mr. Kinkead. Judge
Barker appointed a committee of five
lawyers to "investigate statements con
cerning the attorney made in the gov
ernor's indorsement.
Judge Barker ordered the entry of the
following order: . -. .
"Comes R. C. Kinkead, a member of
this bar, and moves the .court for the
appointment of a committee of not les3
.than; five members of the bar of Louis
ville, whose duty it shall be, to fuiiy. in
vestigate'the insinuation of professional
misconduct on the part of the. said Kin
kead in the reasons assigned by the gov
ernor of Kentucky, in granting the par
dons of Ed Alvey, convicted here on Feb.
Judge Barker then called before him
the grand jury and explained his atti
tude in the gambling cases. He said in
part: - . .. <
"Insofar as it is intimated that this
court has discriminated between one set
of gamblers and another, 1 desire to
state to you, upon the honor of a man,
that that is untrue. . .• V" - '
"That whole pot pourri of Information
that is filed is made of the statements
of men who were either convicted, or
who turned states evidence for fear of
conviction. it was amazing to me be
cause I could not but remember that
when only a little over a year ago the
present governor of Kentucky and his
branch of the legislature fled in terror
from Frankfort to the city of Louisville
when they were threatened with arrest
by the military commanded by the then
Gov. Taylor It was to -this court that
they came for protection, and it was
this governor and iin his favor that I
invoked all the power with which the
commonwealth had Invested me.
"I have it from him and the members
of the: legislature that but for the ac
tions of this court his legislature would
have fled In terror and never have been
assembled again. • Right in this court
he came for protection. 1 do not say
this in ' a boastful, spirit, but merely
to show that if , this court could have
been awed then by the governor with
all his militia at his back there'would
have been no Gov. Beckham now to in
sult . this court.'.' W

Belevue Nurse Acquitted.
NEW YORK, Feb. 28.—The trial -of
Jesse R. Davis, a Bellevue hospital nurse,
accused of the murder of Louis H. Hll
liard, an insane patient, closed tonight
and the jury rendered a verdict of ac
quittal, v. v '.-"'-'.,
m 1 THE or
: VCV7. ; TIME
Magnificent Ivory Gavel Suitably
Inscribed In Presented to the ■«_?
Presiding Officer of
the House.
The Minnesota Editorial association
has possession of St. Paul and tho
"devil ' has charge of the state. This ls
something that happens once a year and
ye editor is glad of it. St. Paul is glad
of it, too, and so is the whole of the
state, not excepting the "devil," who Is
undoubtedly playing Grand High Moloch
Extraordinary with a vengeance.
Sharply at 10 o'clock yesterday morn
ing the association gathered at the Com
mercial club rooms and it was a cheery
sight to see the editors and their wives
and daughters and relatives and friends
laughing and chatting together like so
many family circles. It was with con*
siderable difficulty that they were made
-to pay attention to the work in hand.
President Charles Mitchell wasted no
time in calling the meeting to order, but
it was with some difficulty that he mad«
himself.heard, lor the feminine part of
the gathering in the club rooms insisted
.upon telling their secrets before they
forgot them, and the men were kept busy
making themselves interesting. He soon
restored order, however, and the busi
ness of the morning was covered at a
lightning pace.
Une' Pease, of Anoka, was one of tho
first to bring himself into notice, and it
(surprised no one to find that he had
brought along his little hammer. Ho
said the time had now come for all the
editors of the state to put their shoulders
■to the wheel and do something and then
knocked gently over the way in which
the profession had been treated by cer
tain officeholders left over from the Llnd
administration. It developed in the
course of his remarks that part of his
Ire was directed against Public Examiner
Pope, whose order in regard to the print
ing of county commissioners' statements
had cut down the revenues of the papers.
He recommended that a committee be
appointed to confer anent the matter
with tho house committee on appropria
tions. The following were appointed:
Messrs. Stanton, of Appleton; Eastman,
of Stillwater, and Gorden, of Crookston.
President H. A. Boardman, of the Com
mercial club, soon made his appearance
and delivered the address of welcome to
the editors. Mr. Boardman showed deep
sincerity in his remarks and he was
listened to with much , interest. He
hoped the editors of the state would eve*'
strive to attain the ideal,- for much
power was in their hands and they, had
more influence for good or evil than peo
ple in other professions. He knew.they
would, for they could not help being
proud of their home state. He said that
what the editors wanted was latitude,
not longitude and made some laughing
references to latch keys, sleepy police
men and the like. 'j. \
President Mitchell responded in kind.
In the heartiest and most wholcsouled
manner he could muster he thanked the
club in behalf of the association for its
hospitality—a hospitality which had cov
ered a period of many years. He then
sprung a "con game" like a past master
by Introducing H. P. Hall as Mayor Smith
to deliver the address of welcome for the
city. It is known that Mr. Hall could
not say a dull thing by mistake, and It
was expected that he would immediately,
take a hand in the hoax himself. He
said in beginning:
"Gentlemen, otherwise, and ladies:
Recognizing in Mr. Hall my logical suc
cessor, and being unable to -be present
myself, although here, I make Mr. Hall
my authorized substitute to welcome you
to St. Paul. He will play Dr. Jekyll to
my Mr. .Hyde." -.v.V Vi
In this inimitable strain he kept things
humming, and every sentence was punc- *
tured with laughter, by the listeners. The
ring of his welcome was just about as
strong as it could have been.
The association went emphatically on
record as favoring a $30,000 appropriation
for the Minnesota exhibit ' at the Pan-
American exposition. Mr. Whitney pre
sented a resolution and it was immedi
ately adopted. One paragraph of the
resolution reads: ...
"Our only regret is that the sum pro
posed to be appropriated is not larger and
more in keeping with the progress of tho
state, and we respectfully urge the leg,
islature to give at least this small sum
to advance the business interests of
The next on the programme was the
address of President Mitchell. He paid a
glowing tribute to the memory of John
C. Wise, of Mankato, and said that the
association had been properly represent
ed at the funeral services. An appreci
ative reference was made to the work
done by the law supplement committee.
He called attention to the need of ac
tion on the government printing of return
envelopes. He wanted every association
In the United States to pay the, expenses
of a representation in Washington to
fight this invasion of private business.
He denounced advertising agency sharks
and reviewed the editorial' excursions,
saying their success .was due to the fact
that the state has one of the best as**
sociations in the country.
Promptly at 11:45 the editors and their
wives and daughters boarded electrlo
cars for Stillwater. On arriving thero
they were treated royally by Warden
Reeve. Luncheon was first in order,
after which the visitors were taken
through the prison. This occupied most
of the afternoon, and at 5 o'clock the ed- j
itors started on the home trip. The
visit to the prison proved to he of great
interest, the binding twine' plant being
the chief attraction.
Conde Hamlin had announced, during
the afternoon that a reception would" be
tendered the association at the Ryan ho- j
tel at 8 o'clock. By ft everyone was
present and the reception parlors were j
a .decidedly gay . appearance. Mr. and
Mrs. Hamlin, President and Mrs. Mit
chell and Joseph Wheelock received the
visitors, and "presiding at the tables wero
ice cream and-cakes and frappe were
served were Mrs. J. Wheelock. Mrs.
John Jackson, Mrs. Webster hemlock.
They were assisted by. Mrs. W. E.
Bramhall, Mrs. Boysen, Mrs. W. H. Vit
tum, the Misses Helen Austin, Gertrudo
