Democrats and Republicans
Hurl Verbal Brickbats in
Special Rule Adopted Limiting De
bate to Eight Hours and Cutting
Off Possibility of Amendment.
House in .Uproar.
WASHINGTON, June 8. With the
Democrats attacking the Republicans,
denouncing the insurgents for alleged
Insincerity and assailing the "regulars"
for bringing in "gag rule" to further
a party measure, and the Republican
leaders retaliating by charging the
Democrats with similar performance
when they were in power, a special
rule was adopted in the House yesterday
which placed the postal savings bank
bill on its way to final passage with
the debate limited to eight hours and
ail possibility of amendment cut off.
The rule was brought in . by Repre
sentative Dalzell, chairmalji of the
rules committee, immediately after the
railroad bill had been sent to confer
ence. The debate on the question was
limited to one hour and each side oc
cupied Its full share by heaving verbal
brickbats at the other. The vote was
160 to 1S9, all but 10 "insurgents" hav
ing voted with their party for the
Adoption of the rule.
Insurgents Vote "No."
The 10 insurgents who voted against
'the rule were Cary, Cooper, Nelson and
.Lenroot, of Wisconsin; Davis and Lid
fcergh, of Minnesota, G-ronna of North
Dakota, Hubbard, of Iowa; Norris, of
Nebraska, and Poindexter, of Wash
ington. '
The rule provided for the immediate
consideration of the bill, the limiting
of the debate to eight hours, the pro
lb Ibition of all amendments and the
allowance of the offering of one sub
1 etltute and a motion to recommit.
The denunciation of the "Insurgents"
i was particularly vigorous on the part
of Representative Fitzgerald, of New
jXork. who charged them with lnsln
'cerity in regard to reformation of the
IHouse rules.
Amid Democratic applause he cried:
: "It seems now that the real protest
jef the Insurgents was against 'gag
rule' in their caucus and having ob
tained greater liberality there they are
(perfectly willing to apply the 'gag
'rule' In this House."
Minority Leader Attacks.
Representative Clark, the minority
leader, also vigorously attacked the
special rule.
Representative Dalzell defended- the
rules. He explained that the pending
bill was a Republican measure that
bad been carefully considered In a
caucus where there was free and full
expression of opinion and ample op
portunity to amend and for that rea
son it was not deemed proper to sub
ject it to Democratic amendment.
The Democrats, he said, under Its
terms, were given an opportunity to
offer a Democratic postal savings
bank bill as a substitute.
Representative Boutelle, of Illinois,
replied to the Democratic criticism of
the course taken by reminding the mi
nority of the tactics they had employed
In passing the Wilson tariff bill in
"Then," he said, waving his hands
towards the minority side, "you came
In here dragging 600 amendments to
the tariff bill and proceeded to pass
them all in two hours without even
reading a single amendment."
The bill will be taken up again at
11 A. M-, Thursday, in order that the
House may vote on the measure at 6
o'clock on the evening of that day.

Cuilom Resents Voters Memorial
Against Lorlmer.
WASHINGTON, June 8. Formal
charges against Senator William Lori
xner of Illinois were laid before the
Senate this afternoon by his colleague,
Senator Cuilom. The proceeding was
the presentation of a memorial by Clif
ford W. Barnes, of Chicago, president
of the Illinois Legislative Voters'
League, embodying the charges of
bribery of members of the Illinois Leg
islature. The memorial was read only
In part and was referred without com
ment to the committee on privileges and
Many members of the Senate say that
even with the submission of the confes
sion of White and the indictments against
Brown the Senate still lacks definite
charges connecting Lorimer with the
paying of bribes.
It is generally believed, however, that
, the papers filed will cause the Senate
committee on privileges and elections to
take the steps looking to a thorough investigation.

American Warship's Guns Will Be
Leveled If Single Shot Is Fired
at Stars and Stripes.
BLUEFIELDS, Nicaragua, June 8.
"At the first shot fired -against the
American flag - or an American vessel
I will level the bluff.
This is the reply made yesterday by
Commander Harold Hines. commanding
the American gunboat Dubuque, to a
threat made by General RJvas of the
Madriz forces holding Bluefields bluff,
to stop any vessel entering the harbor.
General Rivas practically defied the
United States, declaring that he would
disregard the proclamation Issued from
Washington on May 31 to the effect that
the United States Government denied
the right of either faction to seize American-owned
vessels or property without
consent of any recompense to the owners.
He warned Commander Hines that he
would prevent by force, regardless of
flag, any vessels from entering the har
bor in the future. In response to this,
the American Commander immediately
sent to him the above message, which
would mean the annihilation of the hand
ful of Madriz troops now remaining in
this neighborhood.
A critical situation has thus arisen
which may involve the United States,
but the American officers here are of
the opinion that General Rivas will not
attempt to make good his threat in an
effort to collect custom duties.
There are constant rumors of threats
against tho life of Thomas P. Moffatt,
the American consul here.

Finding Wife In Man's Arms, He
Draws His Revolver.
Residents in the vicinity of 112 Knott
street reported to the police at mid
night of hearing three shots, fired in
rapid succession, in the home of Joseph
Sanduskl, whose home is at the above
number. A subsequent investigation
by the police brought out the fact that
Sanduski returned home a few moments
before the shooting only to find his
wife in the arms of another man whom
he had previously forbidden on his
premises. In order to invoke his au
thority about the place and at the same
time scare the uninvited guest, the
husband shot three shots from his re
volver at the fleeing form of the un
welcome guest. No arrests were made.

A Book for
Free on Request
It Has Shown Many Sufferers the Way to Health and Happiness
Nervous breakdown may be the first sign of paralysis or some other severe nervous disorder. A tonic for
the nerves is-the one remedy for neurasthenic conditions and Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a nerve tonic as. well
as a specific for conditions that lead to several forms of paralysis. '
They are, therefore, of unusual value in cases of extreme nervousness in which there is reason to believe
that the trouble may progress until a disease develops that is generally regarded as incurable.
It is hot necessary to accept as final the statement of anyone that a case ,of locomotor ataxia or partial pa
ralysis is hopeless. The progress of ataxia has been arrested in hundreds of cases and the patient given many
cf ; , : ' years of useful activity. Paralysis may be
failure of the nerves, to do their work properly
or to some temporary or permanent damage to
their structure. A the nerve receive from
the blood all of their nourishment to keep np
their energy and to repair their waste or
damage, the importance of pure, red blood to '
the health of the nerves is seen at onoe. The
nerves, lite all other tissues of the body, use
their stored np energy when at work and
become exhausted if overworked. The blood,
when healthy, replaces these wastes and keeps
the nerves strong and welL If, however, the
' blood ia impure, as it frequently becomes
through overwork, worry, poor digestion and
many other causes, the nerves fail to receive
their, full supply of nourishment and break

is the cause of most nervous disorders. '
The tonio treatment with Dr. Williams
Pins: Fills marks a distinct advance jn the
treatment of nervous disorders. It succeeds
where others fail because it is based on " the
sound medical principle that the health of the
nerves depends upon pure, red blood. ' By

Vital elements they need. The remedy has
performed so many remarkable cures that no
nervous sufferer can neglect its use with j ustice

Locomotor Ataxia, .
This is a disease of the spinal cord and first'
bows itself in an inability to walk or even I
stand eroot when the eyes are- closed, or in the
dark. It is characterized by peculiar disturb-y
ances of gait and difficulty ia governing the
motions of the legs. Pain is generally the first
symptom to be noticed and may be present for
months before the disease is recognized. The
pains are sharp and shooting, lightning-like,
and, while they may be frequent for a period
! of several days, do not last for any length of
time. : Patients are much affected by the con
dition of the atmosphere for the pains are
generally worse during cold weather, before
electrical storms or when the humidity is high.
' It is better, therefore, for the patient to live in
a warm, dry climate than a- cold, damp one.
One of the commonest and early signs is a
tired feeling, particularly noted in the knees
and ankles. This sensation is provoked by
slight exertion, and is not remedied by rest. .
Often a numb feeling is associated with it,
and these two symptoms are always present
in the early stages. Later developments are
the increase in duration and extent of the
numb. , feelings, covering at times the foot
alone, then extending up the leg. As the dis
ease is of alow growth, some cases covering a
period of ten years, the increase in the intensity
of the symptoms is not noticed, but its progress
is constant and gradually approaches a total
lack of feeling in the legs, causing a wobbling
in the gait and the entire inability to govern the
steps. As it grows the patient loses all control
over the bowels and water. A further symp
tom Is the sensation of the pressure like a cord
entirely of a functional character and
there are many well authenticated cures
Thought She Would Never Get Well
The value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in cases of severe nerv
ous trouble is convincingly shown by the cure of ilrs. H.
(iaudreau, of No. 8o7 est Thirty-sixth Place, Los Angeles,
Cal. She says:
"Vhen I was fourteen years old, I had a severe attack of
diphtheria which left me weak and numb all over. I was per
fectly helpless in bed for three months. I couldn't use my arms
or lesrs. L was numb all over and had no feeling at all.
"The doctors told my mother that I was suffering .from par
alysis and that they thought I would never get well. They did
not help me, and as my mother had often read about Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills she decided to have me buy them. I hadn't
taken manv boxes before I could see that the pills were helping
me a lot. Ia six or eight weeks time I could sit up in bed and
could use my arms a little. I used them all I could and as I
grew stronger all of the time, I got full use of them. I was
longer in learning to walk, but finally was able to do this too.
I use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills until completely cured and have
had no signs of the trouble returning." -
Attending Physician Feared Paralysis
Mrs. W. H.' Gerlaeh,- of University Place, Station No. 5,
Tacoma, Wash., says:
"I became greatly run down through worry and overwork
in earing for my husband, who had been- very seriously injured
in an accident and soon I began to notice a numb, creeping-like
sensation in my hands and feet. These spells lasted for about
five minutes or so at first, but gradually lasted longer until I
would feel them for a whole day. My hands and feet became
colorless and dead like. There was no feeling in them and I
could hardly write or do any work with them. The numbness
was worse during damp weather or when I was extra tired.
"I was under a doctor's care for over a year, and, when the
' numbness begau, he said I was in danger of paralysis. - He
treated me with electricity for several weeks, but he did not
help me. Then I decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, as I
happened to read of a case like mine, which they had cured.- I
gave them a thorough trial and found they were helping me,
for I grew stronger in every way. The numbness finally left
me and I was entirely cured. I have been strong and well since
and am able to do my work."

Defendant Asks for More Time, but
Judge Insists State Has Wait
ed Long. Enough.
SEATTLE, Wash., June 7. 6pecial.)
Ralph J. Leavitt. of Los .Angeles,
lost his final plea for a continuance
of the trial on the information charg
ing him with manslaughter, before
Judge Mitchell Gilliam in the Superior
Court this morning, and the case was
sent to trial.
Public prejudice against automobile
scorchers interfered greatly in the se
lection of the Jury, and almost the
entire day was consumed. One tales
man. E. S- Keene, was excused when
he said in reply to a question of .his
prejudice against scorchers: "It cer
tainly is. I am prejudiced. .I've had
to jump like a yellow dog at cross
ways for years. I could, not serve in
this case."
Leavitt is- u automobile salesman.
and while demonstrating a machine to
C. C. Slaughter, of California, and
James Hardman, of Seattle, July 10,
190S, ran down and killed Rafelia Sago,
an Italian street-Bweeper, at Twenty
third avenue and East Cherry street.
Through his attorneys, R. A. Hulbert,
of Seattle, and Fred W. Morrison, of Los
Angeles, Leavitt asked for a continuance
to the September term on the. ground
that he could not get Slaughter and
Hardman here to testify, and that Depu
ty Prosecuting Attorney John F. Mur
phy refused to permit the testimony of
these witnesses given at the Coroner's
inquest to be Introduced as evidence now.
A further remonstrance was made on
the allegation that Owen McCusker, the
driver of the car, who testified favor
ably to Leavitt at ther inquest, has be
come embittered against the defendant,
and is prepared to swear that Leavitt
directed him to drive the car at the
speed it had attained at the time it hit
Judge Gilliam told the attorneys that
the state had waited long enough and
had given the accused every considera
