Eight Republican members of the Judi

particulars with the views submitted for

th evidence of the Judge's charges of $10
a day for expenses, they are of the opin
ion that "an impeachable offense has been
made out." This makes the committee
practically unanimous for Impeachment,
although differing on the ground.

SENATE DISCUSSES TWO BILLS
They Are the Pure Food and Philip
pine Government Measures.
WASHINGTON. Dec 12. The Senate
had under consideration today the pure
food and Philippine government bills.
Debate on the former was confined to
calling attention to the Inadequacy of the
protection accorded the people of the
United States against impure foods and
The discussion of the Philippine bill re-
lated solely to the question of the guar
antee by the Philippine . government of
the income or Interest on bonds of rail
roads In those Islands..
As Its flrst work, the Senate today
passed a bill to exclude .from the To
semlte National Park, California, certain
lands, and attach them to the Sierra for
est reserve. '
Heyburn (Idaho) then called up the
pure food bill.
In explanation of the bill. Heyburn (Ida
ho) said It was directed at the evil of
adulteration of goods and drugs. Every
state had enacted a pure food law cover
ing in Its general purpose the scope of
the proposed legislation. He declared that
some of the most Injurious articles coming
from foreign countries were manufactured
in violation of the domestic laws of those
countries, but prosecution was evaded be
cause the goods were made especially for
the American trade.
Stewart (Nev.) said that to secure the
best results, sufficient money should be
given to the Secretary of Agriculture to
make a proper Investigation and publish
the results to' the whole world. Private
parties, he said, particularly the press,
would not publish an expose of the fraud
in goods and drugs "because the patron
age is on the other side."
Heyburn (Idaho) and McCumber (N. D.)
made an earnest plea for early action on
the bill, the latter deploring the fact that
in four years the pure food advocates had
been unable to secure a vote.
At 2 o'clock the Philippine government
bill, which was the unfinished business,
was taken up.
Spooner (Wis.) attacked the provision In
the bill relating to the guaranty of in
come or Interest on bonds of railroads In
the Philippines, and said the Philippine
Commission should not be authorized to
make such a guarantee.
Replying to a suggestion by Newlands
(Nev.) that the Philippine government
build the railroads. Spooner said he was
not much captivated with the Idea of
government ownership of railroads. If
the gox'ernment, under any circumstances,
were to guarantee dividends on stock,
the railroad company ought not to be
permitted to put on that property a mort
gage lien ahead of that stock without the
consent of Congress.
This suggestion Lodge (Mass.), chair
man of the Philippine Commission,
thought a wise one, and said it might be
necessary in the bill to protect the in
terests of the government, although he
felt the Philippine Commissioners them
selves would safeguard the Interests of
the United States. Disclaiming that he
had become a convert to government own
ershlp of railroads, Newlands said It
would be worth something to try the ex
perlmcnt of governmental ownership of
the proposed road, because. If unsuccess

the United States need no longer to be
Newlands quoted the views of William
J. Bryan and President Roosevelt regard
ing the Philippine question, and asserted
that the only difference between the two
utterances was that Bryan would give to
day the "assurance" of ultimate Inde
pendence, while Roosovelt only extends
"Why do you Ignore the views of Judge
Parker?" 'Interjected Poraker (Ohio).
"1 don't Ignore the views of any Dem
ocrat In the country." he replied, and
added that he had quoted Mr. Bryan be
cause that gentleman for eight years had
been the recognized leader of the Democ
racy. Lodge declared the United States was
not going Into the ownership of railroads,
and it was not worth while to consume
time In discussing the proposition.
At 3:20 o'clock the Senate went into ex
ecutive session, and at 4:10 o'clock ad
journed until tomorrow.

debtedness of more than 5400.00).
The payment brings to a conclusion one
of the most remarkable cases of applica
tion for bankruptcy in the annals of the
country. One year ago a number of cred
itors of Zion City petitioned Judge Kohl
saat for the appointment of receivers for
the Zion institution.
Judge Kohlsaat appointed receivers, and
they took charge of Zion. Dowie pro
tested that he could pay the debt in a
year if tho receivers were removed.
A committee of the creditors heard the
argument of the head of Zion and came
to the conclusion that he was better fitted
to conduct the affairs of Zion than any
other person. It was arranged that he
was to pay 10 per cent In three months;
23 per cent In six months, another 25 per
cent In nine months and the remainder,
40 per cent, in a year. The receivers were
discharged. Dowie has kept his agree
ment to the letter and paid 100 cents on
the dollar of every claim Involved.

The cry came from the collapsed and

"You have made him desert me, and I
will kill you. Oh. oh, forgive me let me
go and I will kill myself." she had cried
at the Horshoc saloon 15 minutes before
the attempted suicide. The woman she
was addressing she believed to. have
estranged her lover, not Thimm, for he
had left the state, refusing to testify
against her. but another man. Then she
swung through the street door and disap
peared. Her long, black hair was loose about her
neck, and she carried a wide, white- hat
In herhand. She reeled In her drunken
ness, but she knew where she was going.
Staggering and stumbling, she made her

police. When she saw the patrol wagon
coming, she broke away and turned to
run, but Officer Thompson seized her
again, and she collapsed.
Mrs. Osborne, several months ago prom

but later refused to see him. Thimm be
lieved he had a rival and sought the
woman out. On the afternoon of Octo

and became enraged. He wished .her to
go with him, but she refused, and when
he insisted, she fired three shots at him
with a revolver. Thimm subsequently re
covered. Meanwhile she was held until
he was well enough to appear against
her. But, rather than do that, he left the

that the Sheriff had not been able to find

Why London Is More Picturesque
W. D. Howell ia Harper for December.
One reason, I think, why London is

architecture to extend, while with us
It has only a chance to tower, .on the

Is In the London atmosphere, which

of life that flows through the narrow

Crews Working for Hlllsboro Rail
Judging from the surface indications
oozing out of the secrecy of the promot

Portland to Forest Grove, by way of
Hlllsboro, is about to be realized.
There have been many rumors that
this line Is to be built at some time in
the future, and many attempts have
been made to bring the p'roject to ful
fillment, but up to this time the effort
has been m vain. The Oregon Trac

Two surveying parties have been work

two weeks or more and have already

about a week's work before the crew

city and comes across the Balch Creek
Canyon over a steel trestle 110 feet high
and along Raleigh street to a station in
the northern part of town.
As soon as these surveys are entirely
done, and the specifications and grades
have been figured out and planted so that

out of the city by way of Willamette
