FSTE WITHDRAWS HIS DECISION
PrcfcrrinsThat the Senate Shall Kule
un the Matter Statesmen
Washington. Feb. I'd. Quite nnex
pect.dly the senate adjourned yester
day within tifteeii minutes after it
convened. An hour before the body
convened the galleries began to tiil
with spectators, all exp.t-tiug a sequel
to the debate of Monday on the right
of the senators from South Carolina
to cast their votes while under the
Ian of contempt by the senate. Sev
eral Iieniocralie senators had books
tijMjn their desks, and it looked us
though they were preparing to con
tinue the contest. This was made tho
more evident Immediately after the
senate convened. When the clerk be
gan the reading of the Journal of
Tuesday's procctlings the usual re
litiest that the reading be suspended
was made by Stewart.
Not a Stroke of Hu.lnrxl Done.
"I object." interjected Turner (Deui.)
of Washington and lntbois iliem.) of
Idaho in unison, and the reading -was
continued. At its conclusion the jour
nal was approved without comment.

member of the KcpuMican steering
committee, was on ln's fn-t. lie called
Up the message of the house of rei
leseiit.it i ves announcing to the senate
the death last fall of Kepresentative
Kousseau Crump, of Michigan. He
presented resolutions expressive of the
sorrow of the senate at the announce
ment. These were adopted, and then
the senate, as an additional mark of
respect, at li:l." p. in. adjourned. The
Itemocratie senators 'were evidently
Kuiprised. but offered no objections.
Why Sili h Haute to A.'juaru.
The cause of all this desire to cut it
short is that the senate is "up against"
u tough proposition what to do aliout
Tillman ami McLaurin. The president
pro teiu. of the senate (Frye) has
withdrawn his decision of Tuesday
that the South Carolina senators
names could not appear on the senate
roll while they were under suspen
sion this matter carrying with it the
very c-sseiice of the senator's positions
and ordered the names replaced tin

believes his ruling wrong, but because
he wants the senate to take tlie re
sponsibility of settling the case from

;." pulilica n members of the sen
ate cnnimitHe on" privileges and elec
tions were in consultation during the
afternoon over the resolution providing
for the suspension of the two contu
macious senators. None of the sena
tors present at the conference would
consent to disclose the details of the
proccii lings, but it is learned in a gen
cr:il way that considerable doubt was
expressed by some of the members as
to the regularity of the suggested pro
ceeding, some of the senators holding
that the suspension of senators even
by the senate itself would be subject
to criticism. The feeling was .piito
general that the problem is a diilicult
and intricate one. Senators P.urrows
ami Foraker were appointed" a suli
committcc to consult authorities and
(suggest a form of proceeding.
The adjournment of the senate for
the day was decided upon at a for
noon conference of the Kcpuhlh-ati
leaders. 1 he announcement of Crump's
death had michvd the senate Tuesday
but was withheld until yesterday.
When the Kepublican senators were
informed of this fact they were only
too willing to use the announcement
to secure an adjournment, and their
Democratic colleagues were just as
willing that it should be so used.
The Democratic senators spent the
day in a general discussion "among
themselves of the situation. They were
unanimous in their characterization of
I'rye's ruling as arbitrary, and an
nounced their purpose to resist by pro
longed del Mite, if necessary, any fur
ther efforts to enforce the ruling. Tur
ner, acting for his 1 uniocratii- col
leagues, prepared a resoj-ttioli declar
ing it to be "the sense of the senate
that the names of Senators Tillman
and Mcldiurin should lx restored to
the senate roll." and in addition as
serting that those two senators "are
entitled to vote on all question com
ing before the senate." This resolution
may not be pressed owing to tlie ac
tion of the majority.

A letter written by the woman to a

was opened before it was mailed by
the superintendent at Kankakee and
resulted in the discovery of her iden

Dr. Corbus asked the woman, who
still clung to the name of Frances
Agnes Ross, if she ever had been
known as Rosa McDonald. She said
she had not. but asked the superin
tendent why he inquired, lie told her
of Mrs. Cudahy's inquiry. When the
physician had left her she called for
pen and paper and wrote a letter to
her sister in l'.oston. It was a ram
