Spooner expressed the opinion that. In
admitting a state, Congress had no right
to grant privileges to one class and not
another, nor could the Federal Govern
ment retain control of one class of of
fenses and cede It In others. If. for In
stance. Congress could retain control of
the sale of liquor, it could retain it in
case or burglary.
"Or of bigamy, or polygamy." suggested
Jtau or Connecticut.
xes, responded Spooner, and he
added: "Utah ought not to have been ad
mitted into the Union, but, once admitted
on an equality with other states. Con
gress had no more powor to deal with
polygamy there than it had to deal with
burglary there."
Stewart supported the amendment, pav
ing that the guardianship of the United
States over the Indlanstdid not cease .to
exist "so long as the Government exercised
control over the property of the Indians,
even though they be citizens.
Bailey contended that, under the con
stitution, no such discrimination was per
missible. The Senate went Into executive session
and adjourned.
ACTS LIKE -A SULKY BOY.
Williams Complained Because Demo
crats Would Not Follow.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Jan. 27. The little flurry in the
Democratic minority of the House cre
ated by John Sharp Williams, of Missis
sippi, shows to what small things a man
of considerable ability will often descend.
Williams' troubles was that the Demo
crats did not follow him on a certain
proposition and make a party matter out
of a good piece of legislation proposed
by Chairman Hull, of the military com
mittee. A number of Democrats refused
to go on record against a sonslblo amend
ment which Williams opposed, and he
showed his petulance bv havlmr r
called for the purpose of finding out
wnetner no was to be followed absolutely
or whether the Democrats were to vote
as they pleased. When Joseph W. Bailey
was leader of the minority he nerformd
in a similar manner, which made him as
ridiculous as YWlllams has been made in
the present Instance. It is a part of the
Southern Idea of leadership. The leaders,
co-called, demand absolute obedience from
their party.
The legislation which Hull nmnosoH
and which Williams objected to. nmvldArt
that retired officers of the army of high
ranK, wnen selected by states for Na
tional Guard duty, should not receive the
full nay and emoluments of thoir mnir
but should receive the pay and allowances
of a major In the army. Williams under
took to make the point that this was an
attack upon Lieutenant-General Miles.
who had been made a member of the staff
of Governor Douslass. of MassachtiRMtK
and by doing so. Instead of receiving the
reurea pay or a lieutenant-General
would have received the full nav imd at
lowances of a Lieutenant-General on the
active list, a difference or $3000 a year It
his salnrv. Ttils nmnrimon rrni nnt -rll
rected at General Miles Hlone. 'although
he would have been the victim ot It, but
:or a benate amendment.
The object .of the amendment was very
clear. There are somethlne over 3M 'Rrlir-
adJer-Generals on- the retired list, and
any of these securinir nssimmnt n-ith
the National Guard would receive the full
pay and allowances of their rank, instead
ot tnree-quarter pay without any allow,
ances of the grade of Brigadier-General
It was a good, wholesome bit of legisla
tlon. and a great many Democrats under
stood perfectly well that It was in tio in.
tereat of economy, and also in the Interest
or netter discipline m the army. Men who
could retire and still continue to receive
their full pay and allowance by getting
assignments with a state guard would do
so to the detriment of the sen-Ice. It was
a foolish thing on Williams' part to op
pose It. but "he wanted to make political
capital out of -what he thought was the
Republican party's treatment of General
Miles.
TO IMPROVE ARMY POSTS.

couver and Walla Walla.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, Jan. 27. As soon as the army ap
propriation bill becomes a law. Senator
Ankeny and Representative Jones will

tions is r appro nng army posts are made

the Secretary of war. There Is urgent
need of new buildings and other improve
ments at both posts, and the Department
will be advised of the demands both of
Vancouver Barracks and Fort Walla
Walla.
The latter post was about tp be Aban
doned a year ago. but through the efforts
of Senator Ankeny the order of abandon
ment was revoked, and steps have since
been taken to rebuild it on modern lines.
It will require the expenditure of several
hundred thousand dollars to put this post
In good shape.
WOULD TEACH JIU-JITSU.
Lesson of War May Be Applied in
Naval and Military Academies.
WASHINGTON. Jan, 27. America is
learning lessons from the Russo-Japan
ese war which will prove valuable to both
the Army and Navy of the United States.
Some of -these lessons were considered at
the meeting of the Cabinet today and the
discussion which ensued will result In
definite action within a few days.
Some time ago President Roosevelt di
rected attention, through letters to Sec
retaries Taft and Morton, to the desira
bility of encouraging by every means pos
sible the physical development of cadets
at both the Military and the Naval Acad
emies. Subsequently the suggestion was
made that Instructors be employed at the
academies to teach the science of Jiu-jitsu,
tne Japanese method of wrestling. At
the meeting today the entire subject was
discussed very fully. It was concluded to
appoint a joint military and naval board
to study the matter with the Idea of
supplying the cadets at the two National
academies with instruction, not only in
wresllng, but in sword exercises and other
forms of exercise which might prove of
value to the cadets in personal encoun
ters.
It was pointed out that the Dendinjr
Eastern war had demonstrated that hand-to-hand
encounters were much more like
ly to occur In the course of war than
had been supposed. The reason for this
condition, as Indicated by Secretary Taft,
was the adoption of new methods of at
tack.- The present war had developed an
unusual number of night .attacks, in which
tne attacking force usually was in very
close proximity to the enemy before It
was discovered. The result was hand-to-
hand encounters. In many of these flght3
the Japanese, through their superior
Knowledge of swordplay and their re
markable agility, had overcome their op
ponents. It was announced after the
meeting that an order forming- the pro
posed board would be issued soon.
The Cabinet also discussed the subject
or government supervision of wireless
telegraphy. About a year ago a special
board was appointed for the purpose of
investlgatlong it fully. This board had
made a report to the President. As the
matter now stands, it will require Con
gressional action to carry into effect the
ideas of the Administration. It Is likely
mat secretaries Morton and Taft will
bring the subject to the attention of Con
gress in a formal way.
The Administration's views have been
embodied in a bill drafted by the Com
missloner of Navigation, assisted by Csd-
tain Seabury. of the Navy, and others.
The bill is to be revised further by the
Cabinet It provides that no person or
corporation shall use any apparatus for
wireless telegraphy In this country or
upon any American vessel. exceDt ho be
licensed by the Secretary of Commerce
and Labor. Persons exchanging messages
or signals between points situated in the
same state or on behalf of the American
Government are to be exempt from this
requirement, however. The official 11
cense shall provide that the President of
the United States in time of war or public
peril may close any wireless station or
authorize Its use by the Government.
The President is given power to cstab
lish regulations which shall prevent Inter
ference between the naval and military
wireless telegraph stations and the prl
vate or commercial stations. Each 11
censed station Is to be required to answer
calls and signals from any other licensed
station, and to receive all messages or
signals offered for transmission to a
neighboring station, the rate to be that
customarily required for such service.
This requirement is to be. observed, re
gardless of the system used, on pain of
revocation of the license of the offending
person or corporation.
Operation of any apparatus for wireless
telegraph on a foreign ship, while that
ship Is in American waters shall be in
accordance with the regulations pro
scribed by law. -Government stations are
prohibited from- competing for commercial
messages with licensed wireless stations.
NAVAL BILL IS READY.
Provides for Two Battleships, More
Marines and Seamen.
WASHINGTON. Jan. 27 The House
committee on naval affairs, today decided
upon the naval increase programme to
be Incorporated in the Naval appropria
tion bill, providing for only two battle
ships. They are to bo of 36.O0O tpns each,
representing the largest type, and carry
ing tho heaviest armament and armor.
The vote by which the two were adopt
ed was 13 to 4.
The Naval bill was completed today
and will bo reported to the House by
Chairman Foes. It carries approximate
ly $100,070,000 There were different views
in the committee as to the number of
ships that should be authorized, some fa
voring three, others but one. and at least
one member opposed construction of any
vessels. The first motion was for three
battleships. An amendment was pro
posed, limiting the number to one. which
was defeated by a vote of 10 to 7. It
was then amended so as to provide for
two and adopted. The majority against
providing torpedo and submarine craft
was but one.
The "bill provides for 30X) additional sea
men and gives the Marine Corps 200 ad
ditional noncommissioned offlcors and 1000
additional privates.
RETURNS TO THE CHARGE.
Williams Posing as Miles' Champion
Free Seeds Under Discussion.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 27. The House
today passed the agricultural appro
priation bill without material amend
ment. The usual discussion on the
free-seed distribution was indulged in.
Lilly, of Connecticut, censuring: It as
petty larceny. The Army appropria
tion bill was sent back to committee
after Williams, of Mississippi, had ob
Jected to unanimous consent to non
concur in the Senate amendments and
send the bill to conference, and after
Hull had refused to mako a motion to
accept tho senate amendment regard
ing retired Army officers assigned to
active duty.
Tho House adopted a resolution calling-
on the Secretary of the Interior
for Information as. to -whether any
member, clerk or other employe of the
Dawes Commission, who are required
to swear that they have no financial
Interest In any person or corporation
dealing: in Indian lands, had refused
to take the oath of office and to draw
their salaries because ot such refusal,
and also for Information as to whether
or not such members or employes are
engaged In dealing in Indian lands.
After agreeing- to a resolution to de
fray the expenses of the inauguration
of President Roosevelt and postponing
until tomorrow the consideration of
the pension bill, the House in commit
tee of the whole resumed discussion
of the agricultural appropriation bill.
A spirited debate followed the offer
ing by Chandler, of Mississippi, of an
amendment to increase by 3100.030 the
appropriation for free seed distribu
tion. Pou, of North Carolina, moved to in
crease the appropriation to $(00,000.
remarking that It would cost more
than that to inaugurate President
Roosevelt. Both amendments were rejected.
An amendment was agreed to setting
apart $10,000 for the Investigation and
introduction of parasites and other
natural enemies of the gypsy and
brown-tail, moths.
The present system ot the Agricul
tural Department in publishing cot
ton reports -was denounced by Living
ston, of Georgia, who urged that the
reports should be published every two
weeks. In order to stop gambling in
cotton. He moved an amendment ap
propriating $100,000 to enable the Sec
retary of Agriculture to' do this. The
amendment was defeated, 29 to 52. The
bill was then passed.
Williams, ot Mississippi, revived the
discussion as to retired officers of tho
Army serving with the militia, when
Hull, of Iowa, asked unanimous con
sent that the Semite amendments to
the Army appropriation bill be sent
to conference. The Senate substltuto
for the House provision was accept
able to Williams, for he moved to con
cur in that particular amendment. He
asked Hull to make tho motion to con
cur, but Mr. Hull declined, saying he
was opposed to the amendment be

EACH BULLET KILLS ONE
ARIZONA GAMBLER'S DEADLY RE-
VOLVER PRACTICE.
In Revenge for Discharge, He Kills
Three Men and Then Himself,
Not Wasting a Shot.
NOGALES, Ariz., Jan. 27. Ferdinand
Walters, a gambler, early today shot and
killed, in the Palace saloon and gambling
house, M. M. Conn, proprietor ot the
place; J. J. Johnson, a gambler; Moderato
Olivas, a Mexican card-dealer; and then
turned his revolver upon hlmaelf, send
ing a bullet through his brain.
Walters, who was known in the South
west as the "Catalina Kid." had been en
gaged by Conn to conduct a poker game
in his house. A few days ago complaint
was made by patrons of the resort that
Walters had been using marked cards to
win their money. George Howard, one
of the managers, informed Walters that
punfaic methods were prohibited In his
jace .ana requested Waltera to turn over
the game to another man. Waltera did
so Wednesday night, remarking to the
man who took his place that there prob
ably would be some dead men around
there before long.
Shortly, before 4 o'clock this morning
Walters strolled casually into the Palace
and ordered something to cat Having
finished his meal, ho walked leisurely up
to the bar, where Johnson, known as
"Cowboy" Johnson, was taking a drink.
Without a word of warnlne Waltera
drew a 4 5-caliber revolver and fired at
Jonnson from a distance of four feet.
The bullet struck Johnson squarely be
tween tho eyes, killing him Instantly. So
close was the range that the victim's face
was badly powder-burned. The report of
tho revolvor drew Conn to the scene.
Stepping to the middle of the room, Wal
ters fired at Conn as be entered the door,
the bullet striking him Just back of the
left ear. Conn fell dead. The murderer
then turned about and fired at George
Spindle, who eat next- to Olivas, the
monte dealer. The bullet passed through
the rim of Spindle's hat and struck Olivas
in tho left side, producing a wound from
which the latter succumbed a few mo
ments later.
Stepping over the prostrate forms of
Conn and Johnson, Walters made his way
through the crowd of panic-stricken gam
blers to the middle of the street, where
ho placed his weapon to his own head
and sent a bullet through bis brain.
Only four shots were fired, and so quick
ly was the tragedy enacted that hardly
a minute elapsed between the first shot
and the last one.
Walters was 28 years old and had trav
eled extensively. In 1S37 he was In Skag-
way. Alaska, and. It Is said, was a mcm-
Dcr or tne boapy btnitn gang.

experienced their first real tussle of the
season when they met the Oregon Agri
cultural College players last night, and
only secured victory by the narrow mar
gin ox rwo points, witn a score ot z
to 27.
The game was one of the fastest and
most Interesting ever played In the city
and one that kept the large number of
spectators on their feet most of the time.
The closeness of the play is evidenced by
the score, the Y. M. C. A. leading in the
first half with but one point.
Durand played a great game for the
Y. M. C. A-'s, throwing six baskets dur
ing the gam. Thornton, as forward, dls-
unguisned himself, and Freeman was
more than a match for his opponent.
Swann was the CorviJlts star. The
Agrlcs had much the better balanced
team and played a good hard game
throughout. The Y. M. C. A.'s superiority
lay in their ability to throw baskets from
the field.
