DEATH PENALTY WILL STAND MAY SUBSTITUTE THE ELECTRIC CHAIR FOR HANGMAN'S ROPE. pastor of the First Methodist church, i MADER0 WILL BE SENT IN EXILE I BIG SLICE OF HOPEF1ELD POINT WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY WIFE AND FAMILY. NASHVILLE. Feb. 20.- By a ote of 56 to 36 the house of representa tives yesterday rejected the Gilbert bill to abolish the death penalty In Tennessee, and tabled a motion to re consider their action. The defeat of the bill in the houes means beyond doubt that so far as the preaen leg islature is concerned the death penal ty will remain in force, in spite of the vigorous fight waged against it by Duke C. Bowers and others. The decision of the bouse was reached after the longest debate of the eesssion, extending through both the morning and afternoon sessions of the house. The bill was taken up as a special order by the house at 11 o'clock In the morning, and a vote was not tak en until nearly 4 o'clock in the after noon. Mr. Gilbert, in moving the adoption of the bill, made a powerful appeal in its behalf. j Mr. Bryant, ir opposing the bill, de ' elared that it would make 'CoIp Bleases" In Tennespee. j It is said that despite the defeat HIS of the capital punishment bill, a ' strong effort will be made to at least substitute the Plectric chair for the MORE TIME GIVEN OPPONENTS Motion to Set the Five Bills for Special Order Today Is Defeated.

NASHVILLE, Tenn, Feb. 20. In the house ex-Gov. Cox, called from the committee the bill providing for an interchange of judges. He then made a motion that the five law en forcement measures be set as a si ec ial order for 3 p. m. today. This mo tion brought on a somewhat heated debate during which Speaker Stan ton taking the floor, took occasion to pay his respects to the reprea.'Eta ive from Sullivan, ex-Gov. Cox. Several members participated la the discussion, some pleading for more time to consider the measures, and others taking occasion to oppose the bills themselves. Some rather salty accusations were made during the progress of the debate, which was not at all times confined within the bounds of parliamentary restric tions. The final vote resulted in the de feat of the epecial order by a ote of 55 to 35. The senate passed on third reading the bill to remove coverture from married women, the vote being unan imous. Action was postponed on the bill to appropriate one-third of the gross revenue of the state for educational purpoFes. The governor returned to the sen ate without his approval the joint res olution providing for a workmen's compensation commission. SON OF GEN.
