ering the protection of the fish in

which fish may be legally taken and
fixes a schedule of fees to be paid
for use of such appliances by those
engaged iu fishing for market. It
also provides for the licensing of
nonresident rod fishermen, the non
resident license fee being $1 a year.
It retains the commission which is
composed of three members and di
vides the state into nine districts,
the duty-of enforcing the law in re
spective districts devolving upon the
district fish warden, under the direc
tion of the chief warden, who Is to
be one of the commissioners, and 45
The governor also signed the min
ing bills. One regulates the size and
quality of powder for blasting pur
poses and tile other provides for
modernized fire alarms and fire
fighting equipment in mines. The
measures were fathered by Repre
sentative Pervier of Bureau county.

WALL STREET "FARMERS" ONES
LEADING FIGHT ON RECIPROCITY
(Special Correspondence of The Argus.)
Washington. June 8. That the "farm
ers" principally interested in killing
reciprocity are Wall street "farmers,"
whose "crops' consist chiefly of lum
ber and paper trust dividends, was re
vealed in testimony taken by the sen
ate finance committee.
It was shown that Allen & Graham,
alleged attorneys for the National
Grange, are really professional lobby
ists for the big tariff trusts. Their ar
gument when seeking business is that
they can pull the necessary wires in
Washington to defeat or bring about
the passage of any legislation they may
fee assigned upon.
Mr. Allen was made to admit upon
will be demanded; also that aid be
extended to destitute families of the
rictima, that the guilty be punished,
and that the constitutional guaran
tees of protection to Chinese lives
and property be made effective.

suffering from nervous breakdown.
Although it has been reported sev

she was dead, the end whs not ex

noon yesterday she passed into a
comatose condition, from which she
did not revive.
IN COMPLETE COLLAPSE.
Mrs. Nation while in the sanitar
ium was incapable of managing even
her own business affairs, all trace
of the bold prohibition worker dis
appearing when her ron constitu
tion began to fail, and she spent the
last five months of her life in seclu

Mrs. Nation was born in Kentucky
In 1846. Her maiden name was

early life 6he married a man addict

created in her an intense aversion:
to the saloon. When he died she
determined to devote her life to the
suppression of the liquor traffic.
Later she moved to Kansas and

Mrs. Nation's first saloon smash
ing was done in the barroom of the
Carey hotel at Wichita Dec. 27,
190"0. She was arrested and remain
ed In jail several days before she
was released on bond
On Jan. 21. 1901, armed with her
favorite weapon, a hatchet, Mrs.
Natfon made another raid in Wich
ita. This time she smashed two sa
loons. During the next two months Mrs.
Nation surprised the liquor trafflck
ers In various Kansas towns, appear
ing unheralded and leaving a trail
of ruined barroom fixtures wherever
she went. Many saloonlsts became
terror-stricken when the militant
temperance advocate appeared in
their neighborhood and locked their
places and fled before the faithful
hatchet could get Into action.
HURT IN WRECKING SALOONS.
Remarkably few of the saloon men
used violence In resisting Mrs. Na
tion, although she was assaulted and
badly hurt while wrecking a saloon
at Enterprise, Kan.
By this time the state of Kansas
was in a ferment.
Aroused by the spirit of the daunt
less woman from Kentucky, the peo
ple began to demand that all the sa
loons and joints be closed at once.
Smashing parties-were- organised all
over the-' state. The saloon power
was being wrecked. Ai a result of
the agitation bills were passed by
the legislature which strengthened
the state prohibitory law.
Thus, erratic a3 her life has been,
Mrs. Nation was responsible for the
greatest temperance awakening in
