Newspaper Writers.
Guthrie, Okla., March 31.—Crazy
Snake, or Chitto Harjo, the chief of
the Snake Indians, has offered to sur
render. The proffer of the wily old
chief, who has been sought by five
companies of state militia since Sun*
day, was made to officers of the mili
tia. He sent word that he desired to
come in, but feared surrendering to
the local authorities. The chief states
that he never desired a fight.
Adjutant General Canton, to whom
the news of Crazy Snake's wish to lay
(down his arms was brought, expressed
the belief that»the report was rell
able. Such action, he said, was ju£t
what he expected from the old Indian,
whom he knows well and whom he
dots not think dangerous. Shortly
after receiving the news Oeneral Can

Washington, March 31.—The lagging
inti rest in the tariff discussion was
made manifest when it was observed
that but a dozen members were in
tlx ir seats upon the convening of the
house and that for the most part
these were the ones scheduled to
HH i.k. There was such an emptiness
in the house that when the speaker
pro tem., Mr. Perkins, called the body
to order the sound of his gavel echoed
and re-echoed throughout the cham
ber.
The debate was opened "by Mr. t'ox
(O.), who pleaded for a reduction in
the duties on sewing machines, bi
vdes and computing scales. He
vrgued that by reason of the favored
nation clause Germany was enabled
to manufacture and ship sewing ma
chines and bicycles Into Russia,
Fiance and other Continental coun
tries at about half the tariff imposed
on the same articles of American man
ufacture. Because of this fact the
American manufacturer was handi
capped in extending his foreign trade.
Unless the tariff was reduced, he said,
the manufacturers of the products
mentioned would be forced to build
factories abroad, which would result
in throwing out of employment in this
country many skilled workmen.
The action of the committee in re
moving the duty on hides was disap
proved by Mr. Sterling of Illinois.
Mr. Weisse of Wisconsin replied that
the 15 per cent duty so discriminated
against the American tanner and
leather manufacturer that they lose
$5 worth of business on every hide
and labor loses $1 and a half day's
work. The bill does not fernedy the
situation, said Mr. Sterling. He
charged that Mr. Weisse's proposal
was to open the flood gates and let in
cheaper hides from South America
and other countries and cause the
American farmer to suffer.
Mr. Hughes of Georgia contended
that the history of tariff legislation is
"one continuous performance of trag
edy for the farmers."
"The Democratic platform was right
in demanding free lumber," said Mr.
Kit chin of North Carolina, in oppos
ing the bill. The great beneficiaries
of the tariff on lumber, he said, were
the big syndicates of stumpage hold
ers in the Northwest and on the Pa
cific fOflSt.
DEMOCRATS TO FIGHT PLAN
Republicans Would Limit Amend

Washington, March 31.—The Demo
cratic leaders are getting ready for
the fight that will attend the effort
which it is expected that the Repub
lican leaders will make to secure the
adoption of a rule limiting amend
ments to the Payne bill. Upon learn
ing that the Republican whip had
been instructed to have all absent
members on the majority side present
in the house on Thursday at 10
o'clock the Democratic leader issued
similar instructions to the minority
whip.
It is not believed that a caucus will
be held by the Republicans to bind

TAFT WILL SELECT JUDGES
Does Not Recognize Right of Sena

Washington, March 31.—President
Taft again stated to callers that he
did not consider the appointment of
judges to be a part of the patronage
of United States senators. The jiresi
dent thinks that judicial appointment*
should be free from political influ
ences. He considers himself com
petent to pass on the fitness of them
for the bench and will do so. At the
same time he said he would be glad to
receive suggestions from senators and
representatives as to their knowledge
of the qualifications of applicants
The president has several federal
judgeships to fill In the near future
and has received many calls from
senators and representatives from the
districts where the vacancies exist
