tloa M. R. J.lfl, the Ollbf rt primary Miction bill, hlrh In aimed at making a man tell all th secrets Involved In the Australian ballot system, Hall of Burt, evidently lm. pressed with the drastic nature of the measure, declared that: 'In my judgment, thla bill lacka but on thing: ft Ought to provldfl that the elec tlon board shall be equipped with branding Irons and brand every voter as he comes up to register, ao that he may never again vote any otter way except that which he has decide .to vote on this occasion. It seems to mr this method would aerve the purpose of the faction promoting thla bill better than any other possibly could." Currle of Dawes, who also represents In the houne Sheridan, Bog Butte and Bloux countlea, is one of the moat popular mem bera of the legislature. Yet he la one of the least aaaumlng. He seldom la beard in publla apeceh, though he takca an active Interest In all the proceedlnga. He never allows a bill to get by without voting on it. Currle is a', cattle ralaer and la possessed of sufficient of thla world'a goods to keep the wolf from the door for many moona. He owns a range of 8,000 acres and keepa about 1.000 head of cattle regularly, be sides the thousands he buys and eells. In the frontier -flays of Minnesota, Currle wa one of the pioneers of the North Btar atate, being a resident of Brainerd, where he conducted the old Leland hotel. Currle has been vigorously promoting a bill this aes alon calculated to exterminate prairie doga, which are expensive nulsancea out in hla section of the atate. weesy Spring, at Joke. For aome time there has been a standing Joke that ortai cbalr would do for 8weeiy of Adama and Bpurlock of Case, because when one member was not up talking, the other one was. The Joke waa sprung by Bpurlock himself. The other day Bpurlock. who, by the way, ta one of the most pleas ing and effective debaters in the house, waa making a forcible pica for aome meas ure, and Sweezy allpped over and planted himself in the Caas county man's chair. When Bpurlock. sat down be found him self in Sweety's lap. A laugh arose, which waa accentuated when the gentleman from Adama promptly arose and began talking, turning to Bpurlock and explaining that aa there waa but one chair between them he (Swcezy) had no other recourse than to begin speaking. Probably no other man In the houae has been heard more often during the session than Sweezy. Harmon of Saunders, who seldom speaka, declarea he haa made a care ful calculation and found that Sweezy baa consumed preclaely 9, 318.45 worth of time this aession In debating. In thla connection may be told the dr. eumetancea of the only speech mado this session by Bacon of Pawes. Bacon la one of the beat-natured members of the legis lature and la liked by everyone. He la one of the fifty-five farmers of the houae. Hla aeat la directly in front of the clerk's desk and he paya atrlct attention to every proceeding. Last week the houae adopted a rule limiting speeches on the revenue bill to ten minutes. One day Sweexy arose and began talking. Half a dozen watchea were pulled out. When he bad talked ten mlnutea some member called the attention of the chair to the fact, whereupon Sweety exclaimed:. "I'll take my aeat if any mem ber demanda it." Everything waa quiet and Sw9ezy re peated his banter, smiling aa if he knew no one would call him. "I demand it," presently ahouted Bacon lifting his 265 pounds of avordupols from hla aeat. Thla was Bacon's maiden speech, but It nnk effect Immediately.' for Sweezy sat down forthwith. No Time to root Away.

They will do it because they don't think carefully, but parenta who give coffee to children reap their own punishment in the puny, alckly looking little onea. Many and many a child haa been atarted oa the road to dlaeaae that endod in death by being Improperly fed and given coffee, which la a rank poison to many a highly organized human being. A lady of Atlanta, Oa., says: "My mother v.as a slave to the whims of her children and let ut eat and drink anything we called for: particularly ahe gave ua coffee, and lota of It. "I grew up delicate, nervoua, half sick ed miserable. When I waa about grown I began having aerloua spells with my heart and my condition became so bad my friends decided I could not live long.

Mica, CONGRESS TO MEET -EARLY President Determined to Convene Special Session it October. CUBAN TREATY LEGISLATION DESIRED Indications Point to the Adoption of Some Kind of a tlotare Rale In the Senate at Conlag Session. . (From a Staff Correspondent ) WASHINGTON. March 22. (Special.) President Roosevelt la fully determined to call congress together in extra session on or before October 1. All sorts of pressure has been brought to bear upon him In tha hope of inducing him to abandon this project. But the president has decided that it Is essential that legislation must be enacted to put the Cuban treaty into effect before the marketing of the sugar crop of the Island tor this year. The presi dent has told those who have called upon him to protest that. In hla opinion, the nec essary work can be accomplished within two or three weeks, and that nothing need prevent an adjournment In ample time to allow senators and members to take part in the fall campaigns In their respective states. There la no doubt that it the president's plan should be carried Into effect with the leaders in both bouses In harmony with him the desired Joint resolution could be disposed of within a week. But con gress Is not in the habit of acquiescing In the wishes of the president In matters of this kind. Within an hour after the formal election of Mr. Cannon as speaker the bill box will contain several hundred bills, the authors of which will push their favorite measures wtth their utmost vigor. The so-called Aldrtch financial bill Is one which will cause prompt discussion. It waa not because they opposed the principles laid down in the bill that the democratlo mem bers of the house refused to allow it to be discussed during the last few days of the last seaslon, but they argued with a great deal of force that ao radical a depart ure from existing law should not be forced through the house under whip and spur during the last hours of a dying congress, especially as the bill had not been printed more than twenty-four hours when the attempt was made to pass it. Canal Donda Involved. The fact that under the Panama canal treaty aometblng like $150,000,000 In 2 per cent bonda will be put upon the market within the next few years, may have an important bearing upon the fate ot the Aldrlch bill. Heretofore United States bonds, even when bearing the lowest rate of interest, have always commanded a pre mium. This Is due in part to the fact that such bonds are the basis of national bank circulation, and are also required aa a guaranty that United Statea funda de posited In banks will be repaid when needed. The Aldrlch bill, aa It Is well known, provides for the eubstitutlon of state, municipal and other bonda for such purpose, and it Is believed that should that bill become a law and the outstanding Indebtedness, of the United States be In creased, as it must be, as soon aa active work begins on the canal, the result will be the depreciation in the value of gov ernment bonds. But that the Aldrlch bill, or some similar measure, will be put through congress at the next session is a foregone conclusion, and that an attempt will be made to have it enacted Into law Just as soon as : congress reassembles. whether it be In August or December, is equally certain. Some talk has been heard within the last tow days of an organized attempt to de feat the Cuban legislation, but it Is not at 11 likely that it will be successful not withstanding the efforts ot the anti-Cuban lobbyists to this end. Clotnre Rale In Sight. There were one or two significant! in cldenta in connection with the extraordi nary session of the senate which has Just closed which seemed to presage changes In the senate rules. Some of the moat persistent advocatea of unlimited debate among the older senators openly express themselves as favoring rules which will fa cllltate business In the upper branch of congress. It is not likely that a cloture rule as drastic as that of the house will ever be adopted, but it seems quite prob able now that within the next year the' senate will wipe out some of Its tra ditions, and will adopt some method whereby the majority can legislate when bo disposed in spite of the opposition of an insignificant minority. In the past Senator Allen of Nebraska tied up the senate for several days until he forced his views upon tho . majority. Senator Quay of Pennsyl vania spoke for nearly a week in oppo sltlon to the Wlleon tariff bill and was ready to keep it up for another week if the majority had not agreed to the amend menta he desired. At the close of the Fifty-sixth congress Senator Carter of Montana killed tho river and harbor bill by talking It to death, because he did not think hla section of the country had been properly cared for in the matter of irri gation legislation. The most recent ex hibition of one-man power In the senate waa that given by Senator Morgan, who forced the extra aession because he would not permit a vote on the Panama treaty before the 4th of March. Such men as Senators Allison, Aldrlch and Cockrell have come to the conclusion that the time has rrired when the senate should be per mitted to do business if a majority ot that body desires to accomplish something. The result will be that the Fifty-eighth con gress will see a new order of things In the upper branch, and many of the obso lete rules will be expurgated. Neve Pablle Balldlac.. Within the next year. In all probability, active building operations will be begun on both sides ot the park surrounding the capltol. Although the omnibus bill, carry Ing $3,100,000 for a new office building far the houae of repreaentatlves was not signed until March S, three weeks have not elapsed before the first step toward aecuring the neceaaary land for this pur pose had been taken. The commission which haa the matter in charge propose to push matters with the utmost speed in order that the new structure may be ready for occupancy at the very earliest posalbla date. Almost Identically with the approprla tlon of the first installment of the money for the congressional office building, con gress provided for a new union station tor the railroads entering Washington. This atatlon Is to be located Immediately north ot the capltol grounds. It will coat, to gather with the approaches and tunnel somewhere In the neighborhood of $10,000, 000. The construction of the building will be under the direction ot the Pennsylvania Railroad company, and a great deal of In terest la felt here over the probable time which will be required for the work. It I a notorious tact that government building! invariably require twice as much time for their erection as do private buildings of like cost. In tact, the only notable ex cepllon to thla rule In the laat decade was the rebuilding of the capltol roof under the direction of Mr. Elliott Woods. It was because of the wonderful work that he did in thla Instance, and also In the matter of tearing out and rebuilding tbe old con greaalonal library, that Mr. Wood waa given tbe position of aupertntendent of the building, in apite of the oppoaition ot some Jealous arrhltecta, who wanted the plac for one of themselves. Tbe Pennsylvania compaajr U eipecUd to start w,ork Juat as soon as the plans can be prepared and arrangements made with the Baltimore A Ohio, which la the only other road at present having Its own terminal facilities In Washington. It Is confidently believed that within five years the tracks which now cross the Mall will have been taken up, that the historic old Long bridge will have been abandoned and that Waahington will be provided with a handsome railroad station second to none In the country. It Is not generally known outside of Washington, and In tact few people In the city realite, that the Long bridge Is almost a thing of the past. The stone piers for the new structure to take lta place are about completed, and within a month or two tbe work on the superstructure will have been started. Shakeap In Sham's Department. This Is not an age of "old men for coun sel" in the trcaaury. That Important gov ernment department is now in the hands of "young men for action," and the result Is that the ripper process Is going on at a rate that would amaze tbe oldest inhab itant of any city reorganized by a legisla ture. This business Is called "Improving the service," but Just why It Improves a service to put experienced men out and in experienced men in, will probably not be easily understood. The recent retirement of General Spaulding, assistant secretary, one of the most distinguished and experi enced men In the cuatoma service, has now been followed by the enforced departure of General Jamca A. Dumont, who has for thirty yeara been connected with the steam boat inspection service and for a large part ot that time supervising Inspector general. He is a man ot an ability fully corresponding to his extensive experience, and haa bean recognized as a great au- tnority on ail matters connected witn tnis service. Bath the generals are succeeded by young men, without knowledge or ex perience In the line ot work which they have undertaken. It Is a sufficient com mentary on the "rlpptr" business to say that both -the generals are transferred to nfcrlor positions, the value of their serv ices being thus recognized, while the higher places are held by tbe young newcomers. The whole clerical force of the department being shaken up in the rejuvenating process (so-called), and, as far as haa yet developed, not all to its Improvement. Cured by One Bottle of Chamberlain's Coo ah Remedy. The honest truth as stated by Frank W. Perry, editor of the Enterprise, Shortavllle, N, . Y.: "When I had an attack of the grip laat winter (the second one) I actually cured myaelf with one bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. This la the honest truth. at times kept from coughing myself to pieces by taking a teaspoonful of thla rem edy, and when the coughing spell would come on at night I would take a dose, and It seemed that in the briefest interval the cough would pass off and I would go to sleep perfectly free from cough and Its ac companying pains. To say tbat the remedy acted aa a most agreeable surprise Is put ting It very mildly. I had no idea that It would or could knock out the grip, simply because I bad never tried It for such a pur pose; but it did, and It seemed with the necond attack of coughing the remedy caused It not only to be of less duration, but the pains were far less severe, and 1 had not used tbe contents of one bottle before Mr. Grip had bid me adieu." ASK CASTRO TO STOP (Continued from First Page.) the supremacy of any other man cannot change either the attitude of the powers toward Venezuela or the engagements en tered Into by Venezuela through Mr. Bowen. When the pope was Informed he said: "Let ua pray God that this may end the tribulations of our beloved children there." Doubt Castro's Sincerity. WASHINGTON, March 22. President Castro's resignation came in for much dis cussion today In government and diplomatic circles. Tbe general sentiment of those conversant with South American r.ffalrs aeemed to be that the president's action waa merely a political move to obtain a vote of support from congress. It Is not thought that ho has any serious idea of giving up hla office permanently Some manifestation of confidence, it Is suggested, was necessary, in view of condi tions existing in Venezuela) arising, it might be, out of the extraordinary import dutiea levied about a month ago, and tbe effect of the revolution.

Abe Nelson and William Smith, half and full brothers ot the late Mrs. Charles Fair, to day refused to discuss a report that the claims of their family to the Fair eatate had been settled for $250,000. A friend of the family, who la in a position to speak, said, however, that be doubted that such a settlement had been effected, but if the re port said the settlement was on tbe basis of $250,000 to each of the relatives of Mrs, Fair he would place some reliance In It. From his manner of talking it was infer red that negotiations to settle on that basis are in progress. TUGMEN RENEW HOSTILITIES Owners of Vessels Are Notified that Colon Men Mnst Be Employed.

IOWA MAN FALLS DYING IN MOTHER'S LAP Nervy Traveler Repels Attack with Revolver, Thus Precipitating Gen eral Fasllade, Bavins; Com- LOB A NO ELKS, Cal.. March 22. Later etaila concerning the street car holdup last night show that after a pistol duel between C. W. Henderson, one of the pas- engers, and one of the robbers, the other two highwaymen began shooting right and left through the crowded car. One passenger was killed and three wounded. The dead: H. A. GRISWOLD of Manson, la. The wounded: J. C. Cunningham ot Los Angeles, thigh bone broken; serious. Ellis Pearson ot Sawtelle, shot through left leg. Dr. C. H. Bowles ot Los Angeles, shot through left hand. It Is believed that one of the robbers was badly wounded. Mr. Grtswold came here several months ago for the benefit of his mother's health- Car Strikes Obstruction. The holdup occurred at the head of a deep eut. The robbers had placed a steel rail, a large bench and a cement barrel on the track. Charles Curry, the motor- man, saw the obstruction when the car was several hundred yards from It and at once turned off the current and ran slowly to tbe place. The moment the car struck three men wearing masks over their faces sprang from the weeds alongside the track. One boarded the front end of the car and the other two the rear end. The first man commanded the passengers occupying the open seats to put up their hands and when one of them did not comply he fired a hot. Henderson then opened fire on the robber, shooting as fast as be could pull the trigger. The robber turned his run unon Hen derson, but as he did ko he was seen to bend over and cry out as if in pain. Then straightening Up he began shooting at the passengers huddled In the front seats. One of his bullets struck Ellis Pearson In the left leg. Henderson continued firing and the robber was seen to fall. While this was going on the two robbers who had entered the rear door commanded the passengers to raise their bands and most of them did so, but before they were searcnea the shooting began on the out side. Then the other two robbers began snooting right and left into the crowd of passengers. Falls Dying In Mother's Lap. Grlswold was seated about the middle of the car with his back turned toward the robbers. At the command, "Hands up!" he tried to secrete his watch under bis legs and one of the robbers, thinking he was ADout to draw a gun. fired point blank at him. The bullet struck him in the back of the neck and he fell over Into the lap of his aged mother, who was seated at his side. Dr. C. H. Bowles was near the front door and at the word of command raised his hands. When he had them in the air one of the bullets from a' robber's revolver struok his left hand and shattered the bones. After emptying their revolvers the robbers backed out of the door, sprang off the car and disappeared .,. ,. The car proceeded with all possible speed to Sawtelle, the nearest point where med ical aid could be secured. Grlswold expired before the car had gone mile. He never spoke after he was shot and when his body was lifted from the car at Santa Monica hla watch was found under him on the seat. His mother was covered with his blood' and was almost in sane from fright and grief. The bullet which killed him grazed the cheek ot Miss Anna Funk, who waa traveling with him. At Sawtelle Pearson was taken off tbe car and conveyed to his home. The other wounded persons were taken to Santa Monica and given surgical attention. As soon as the shooting waa over Hen derson sprang from the car and started to run. He ran across a vineyard and struck a wire fence, being knocked down. While in that position be saw two of tbe robbers run to a road nearby and climb into a buggy and drive toward Los Angeles. Every available officer was sent to the scene but no trace ot the robbers was found. Owing to the confusion Incident to the shooting no description was received except that one was an unusually tall and the other two of lower stature. The general manager of the company to night offered a reward of $1,000 for the capture of each of the robbers. The high waymen secured nothing whatever from tbe passengers. Inalde the car were thirty or more pas sengers and there were more than ten shots fired. Bullets were found imbedded In the woodwork In many places when the car reached this city.

Stinaon, commissioner of tbe Morris Brown college of Atlanta, Oa., ad dressed a congregation of colored people in the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal church today and both were hopeful for the future of the colored race. Bishop Derrick pointed out that educa tion for the masses, both white and black, In the south Is deficient, and continued: What the colored nencln of the south neel Is the passage of a bill like the Blair meas ure in tne last congress. That Dili is raei on a sound conception of the educational needs of the southern negro. We do not ask the nation to pension us. We ask the nation, though, to educate us so that we can support ourselves. Speaking of the belief among northerners that colored people were not safe In the south, Dr. Stlnson said: You think we are o-olna to be annihilated down there some nay. That la because someone like Mr. Tillman comes up here and makes a few rash statements. The fact of the matter le that the aovernor himself could not stop the punishment of the negro. even lr ne stood wltn the people who were taxing tne law into tneir own nanas. -mere are just ns many people, white people, down south who oppose such acts as there are In tbe north.

This Is vigorously opposed by peo ple living between the levees, ana- feeling Is said to be running high. At Duvals and from Brunswick to Chot ard there Is imminent danger at several points where large forces ot laborers are working day and night. City of St. Joseph brought in more than a hundred refugeea, men women and child ren, from the Davis and Kiger places, and will go back as soon as discharged for oth ers who are imperiled by back-water. Four hundred head of stock have been concentrated on the high place at Aus tralia awaiting removal, but It Is feared that most of them will be swept away be fore a .boat can be secured to bring them out. On the Louixtana aide, about Pitcher's Point conditions similar to those at Fillers exist and it will be impossible to hold the line much longer. The gauge here tonight registers 50.8 and rising, and the under-the-htll section of tho city, embracing the wholesale district, tho railroad shops and compress, is well cov ered with water. The private levee protecting the Hamp Davis place In Issaquena county gave way this afternoon, flooding thousands ot acres of cultivated lands. The break will seri ously affect the weakened levee extending from Duvalls to Ghotard, a distance if four miles, and news of a break In that line Is momentarily expected. Waters Fall at Memphis. MEMPHIS, Tenn.. March 22. The river here continues slowly to fall, the gauge tonight registering 29.6 feet. The flood conditions are becoming brighter, and it Is generally accepted that the worst is over. Reports from the levees both north and south of Memphis say they are holding splendidly. The railroads west of the river will be open for traffic by Wednesday next. More refugees arrived today from the south and are being taken care of by the authorities. The chlpment of tents by the government fiom Jeffersonvllle, Ind., is expected to morrow and a refugees' camp will be pitched, with ample accommodations for ail flood sufferers. Reports from Natches say that while the weather today has been most favorable for the levees, it was found necessary to send more men to the Sycamore levee In Cordla Parlrh, Louisiana. It was expecteJ that the grade would be reached yesterday, but when daylight broke this morning tbe work was so far behind that the New Or leans Northwestern railroad sent sixty men to the front. There has not been enough sunshine to dry out the earth with which the men have to work. The fears of tho people have been Increased by the con tinued rise In the river and while the levee men and engineers contend that Syca more will hold, old timers who have ex perienced the high waters, are skeptical, as heavy pressure is yet to come. The Natches gauge tonight reads 49.8, a rise of 0.2 in the last twenty-four hours, and rising. Only One Mora Break. NEW ORLEANS, March 12. The river tonight reached the twenty-toot stage and as the Memphis wave la on the way, twenty-one feet will be reached by Satur day if the levees hold along the Louisiana line.
