Democrats Attempt to Leave Chamber,
but Republicans and Outsiders
Block the Way—Action on 8tate
wide Amendment Postponed Until
After 8t. Louis City Election, When
Measure Is Expected to Pass.
Jefferson City, Mo., April 5—The
proposed constitutional amendment
establishing statewide prohibition has
been made a special order for April 3
by the house of representatives of the
iMlssouri legislature.
The committee on constitutional
amendments reported the measure
without recommendation. The Demo
crats tried to force its Immediate con
slderatlon, but by a strict party vote
the Republicans defeated the effort—
57 to 50. This was in keeping with
the action of the Republican caucus
which is believed to have been based
on a desire to keep the amendment
in the background until after the city
election in St. Louis next week. It is
claimed that the measure will receive
77 votes in the house and 22 In the
senate and thus pass both branches ot
the general assembly.
There was a small steed riot in the
house before the final vote was taken.
The Democrats complained that no op
portunlty had been given to present a
minority report on the proposed
amendment and left their seats.
Immediately there was a rush for
the door, the Republicans Beoking to
block the exits. U. G. Crandall, He
publican, and H. L. Johnson, Demo
crat, came to blows, but were sep
arated before any damage had been
done. Most of the Democrats left the
hall, but later returned. J. T. Barker,
leader of the minority, charged that
much of the trouble had been caused
by the presence of nonmembers, who
had been brought in to prevent the
exodus of the Democrats.
Tennessee Decision on Presbyterian
Church Union.
Nashville, Tenn., April f.—The su
preme court has decided the Cumber
land Presbyterian church union case
In favor of the loyalists. The decision
Is a great surprise to the unionists.
The court, in an opinion of ninety
one pages delivered by Justice M. M.
Nell, holds that the steps sought to
be taken by a portion of the Cumber
land Presbyterian church In uniting
with the Presbyterian church, U. S A.
were not effective.
It was held that the Cumberland
ohureh still exists and that Its mem
bers still retain its creed, doctrines
etc. It was held that the unionists
had allied themselves with another
different church and doctrines.
The Cumberlands are given the
church property and the unionists are
adjudged not to have a right or title tc
It. Their bill, in which they sued tc
recover church property in Fayette
ville, Tenn., is dismissed with costs.

Bvidenoea of political unrest in the
Colombian republic were recorded

efforts of the administration to have
the three sided treaty between Colom
bia, Panama and the United States

people objected to this body, which is
entirely appointive, taking any step
of this kind and insisted that the mat
