DEATH OF REPRESENTATIVE EPES
CALLED EARLY ADJOURNMENT.
In the Senate Ross Spoke Against
Seating Qnaj- and Teller Against
the Financial Bill.
WASHINGTON. March 3. The Senate
held a brief session, adjourning on ac
count of the death of Representative Epes.
of Virginia. During the session Ross of
Vermont spoke In opposition to the seat
ing of M. S. Quay "and Teller spoke in
criticism of the conference report upon
the currency bill. A number of private
pension bills were passed during the day.
In the House no business of Importance
was transacted, and on account of the
death of Representative Epes, on early
adjournment was taken.
THE DAY IX DETAIL.
Teller' Sjicecn Asralnst the Confer
ence Report on the Currency Bill.
WASHINGTON, March 3. "When the
Senate convened today, Pettigrew (Sll.
S. D.) introduced and the Senate passed
a" resolution Instructing the Secretary ol
"War to send to the Senate the court
martial proceedings of 1S64 against Lieutenant-Colonel
Corbln, now Adjutant-General
of the Army. The resolution also
calls for other information bearing upon
Corbln's military record.
The Quay resolution was then laid be
fore the Senate, and Ross (Rep. VL) ar
gued against the seating of Quay. He
announced that his conclusion had been
arrived at only after a careful
study of the constitution. He con
tended that under the Constitutional pro
vision a vacancy In the Senate could only
be filled when It occurred during the re
cesses of the legislature. The Quay case
did not, to his mind, meet this require
ment. At the close of Ross speech. Teller (S1L
Rep. Colo.) took the floor to discuss the
conference report on the financial bill.
He maintained that too much power was
given the Secretary of the Treasury, and
he was opposed to all the provisions of
the measure, which he discussed at
length. Teller said he did not believe It
was a good thing to extend the public
debt, but he did not think the gold stand
ard could be maintained without it. He
asserted that there had been no effort
made In the last 12 years to reduce the
public debt, nor would there be by the
Republican party. He asked why, with
all the money In the Treasury, it could
not be used to pay current expenses, In
stead of issuing bonds.
Allison (Rep. R. I.) replied that this
would prevent any evil effects from a
possible endless chain, and was to prevent
drain upon the Treasury.
Teller said the power conferred upon
the Secretary of the Treasury under the
proposed law was practically unlimited.
He thought that, except in extreme cases,
It was a mistake to give unlimited au
thority to the Secretary. He did not,
therefore, believe the Secretary should
have power to suspend the issuance of
certificates. There was, to his mind, no
reason for the provision for the exchange
Referring to the premium of 6 per cent
on the proposed bonds. Teller argued that
they would still go higher, because the
ho'.der could at any time get the full face
value of them In money, drawing 2 per
cent Interest, while holding the bonds,
meantime paying no taxes. He predicted
that under the operation of the proposed
law the banks could control the volume of
the currency. When they want to create
a fall In prices or to coerce Congress, they
will have nothing to do but go to the
Treasury with their notes, get the cur
rency and return them when they get
ready, thus forcing contraction or expan
sion at will, and thus, he supposed, giv
ing us the promised elastic currency. Un
der this provision the banks would prac
tically control the business of the country.
Referring tb the recent act of the Treas
ury In coming to the assistance of the
banks In an emergency, he said that the
money then deposited could not now be
taken out without creating disastrous ef
fects. He did not mean to criticise Secre
tary Gage for his action In that matter.
He did not believe him to be dishonest,
but under the power given, a dishonest
man In his position could have made un
to'd wealth out of the transaction. He
did not blame the banks, he said, but the
system which allowed the Government to
go to their relief when asking for relief.
"Why should the Government sustain a
bank any more than any other Institution?
Teller criticised the bimetallic declara
tion of the bill as silly and weak, because
It meant nothing. No man who had voted
for the bill as It passed had a right to
call himself a bimetallst. Senators who
had stood here for years, calling them
selves blmctallsts. had accepted the gold
standard bill at the dictation of a caucus,
and the probability was that they would
go to the full length demanded by the
At 3 o'clock the pension appropriation
bill was taken up, but on account of the
slim attendance of Senators, Its final con
sideration was postponed. The Senate
then went into executive session. After
the executive session the doors were re
opened and the 'Senate took up private
pension bills, of which 37 were passed.
Martin (Dem. Va.) announced the death
of Representative Epes. and the follow
ing Senators were appointed a committee
to attend the funeral on behalf of the
senate: Daniel, Martin, Perkins. Scott and
Harris. As a further mark of respect,
the Senate then, at 3:45 P. M., adjourned.
In the Hocse.
In the House today, the desk of Repre
sentative Epps. of Vlrg'n'a. who died last
night, was hung with crepe and covered
with a profusion of flowens.
It had been intended to proceed today
with the Aldrlch-Robblns contested elec
tion case, but unanimous consent was
given to vacate the order heretofore made
ard pcfttpone the final vote until next
Tuesday, at 2:30 P. M.. the debate con
tinuing Monday and Tuesday.
A bill was passed for the Government
ncquis'tion of certain reservation of giant
trees in California.
Hay (Dem. Va.) announced, with an ex
prewlon cf profound sorrow on the part
of himself and his associates, the death
of Epps. He offered a revolution of re
spect and evmpathy, which was unani
mously adopted. A committee of IS mem
bers was appointed by the Speaker to act
with Senate committee as the funeral es
cort, and at 12:48. as a further mark of
rcrpect to the deceased, the House ad
journed. ARGUMENTS IN CLARK CASE.

and had children by his plural wives.
Similar testimony was given as to Orson
Smith, lately postmaster at Logan. Utah.
The cross-examination was directed main
ly to showinsr that the witness had no uer-
sonal knowledge of the facts, and fqioke
only from general hearsay. He presented

retary Porter acknowledging the receipt
of letters from Rev. Mr. Clemenson. of Lo

WRECKING OF THE CHARLESTON.
Anonymous Letter - "Writer Says
Whisky Did It.
WASHINGTON. March 3. Sensational
charges are contained in an anonymous
letter which has been received at the
Navy Department from Manila. The com
munication relates to the wrecking of the
Charleston, and makes the serious state
ment that a number of officers of the ves
sel at the time of the disaster were under
the influence of liquor. The correspond
ent who furnishes the information claims
to have verified the allegations by dili
gent inquiry among the officers of the
The letter was not placed on the official
files on account of the peculiar nature of
tho charges, but it has been referred to
the Judge-Advocate-Oneral of .the Navy
with instructions from Secretary Long
that the matter be investigated at once.
This inquiry will probably not take a more
formidable aspect than a note of Inquiry
addressed to the Commander-in-Chief of
the Asiatic station. Naval officers here
who have seen the letter say there was
nothing to Justify the charges, and they
believe the Department's Inquiry will re
lieve the accused officers from the unwar
ranted allegations. Captain Pigman, who
commanded the Charleston at the time of
the wreck, is not involved in any of the

MIXER ILANNIGAN EXPLAINED THE
Declared Such Permits Conld Be
Pnrchnsed of the Deputies Poli
tics Introdnccd in the Case.
WASHINGTON. March 3. Edward
Flannigan. of Mullan, Idaho, continued
his testimony today before the House
committee on military affairs concerning
the Coeur d'AJene riots. He said notices
were posted early last July forbidding
members of organized labor from going
to the Miners' Cemetery July-11 for 'their
usual ceremony over the deceased miners.
This order, the witness said, gave notice
that women and other relatives of min
ers "would be arrested if they assembled.
Chairman Hull brought out the state
ment that Auditor Sinclair Bartlett signed
the notice for Governor Stcunenberg, who,
the witness said, represented the Demo
cratic and Silver parties. Notwithstanding-
the order, a number of women secret
ly carried flowers to the miners' graves,
but as there was no organized demonstra
tion, they were not arrested.
Flannigan explained the "permit" sys
tem put Into effect after the military ar
rived. Under this system, he said, men
could not work unless they got a permit
from the state officials. The witness said
that permits to work were purchasable.
Ho advanced ?2 50 to a friend, who paid it
to a deputy and was put to work next
day. Letters to men In the "bullpen," he
said, were opened by the officials before
delivery to the prisoners.
Thomas Honey, formerly a miner, and
now owner of mining and other property,
testified as to his experience during the
trouble. He had been appointed a Deputy
Sheriff, and, seeking to preserve peace,
ordered tho saloons closed. The witness
said he was arrested by one of tho state
Deputies, accompanied by a squad of sol
diers, and put In -the "bullpen." He said
he could have given ball up to JIM.OOO, but
was not allowed to do so. He detailed
numerous Instances of alleged prejudice
In tho proceedings before the Coroner,
saying witnesses who testified against the
accused miners were released, while those
favorable to them were held.
Mr. Honey continued hls narrative at
the afternoon session. He said one of the
men, after being In a dark guardhouse for
a week, came out unable to use his eyes,
and. In the witness opinion, his eyesight
was permanently injured. The men In
the "pen," he said, were physically
broken down after their long confinement.
He lost 20 pounds during his 6tay.
There was a sharp controversy between
Representative Lentz and other members
of the committee as to whether the wit
nesses should be interrogated on the politi
cal connections of various persons referred
to In the testimony. The committee final
ly decided by a vote of 5 to 2 to permit
inquiries on this line.
Moses Simmons, County Commissioner
at Murray, 32 miles from Wardner, testi
fied that the mlno authorities appealed
to him April 26, stating that the Bunker
Hill mine was in the hands of a mob.
On Inquiry, he did not consider it neces
sary to take any unusual steps. Later ho
was removed from office and arrested.
Simmons will continue his testimony Mon
day. J. F. Mulholland, president of the Inter
national Union of Bicycle-Workers, was
among those present at the hearing today.
Controller Coler, of Xcw York, At
tacks the Corporation Counncl.
NEW YORK. March 3. Controller Coler
today attacked the office of the corpora
tion counsel In a way that is likely to
create a storm. He charged wholesale rob
bery and did not hesitate to say that
bribers' Is rampant among the city office
holders who, he avers, seem to have made
the trade of theft respectable, and there
by avoid the fate of the late William M.
"Robbery of the City of New York is
now perfectly legalized," he began. "I
prepared and sent to Albany a bill that
would save the city from wholesale theft,
a "bill providing that the persons selling
supplies to the city departments shall not
charge more than market prices. The
officers of the city whose duty It Is to
defend such, went to Albany to push a
bill providing that those selling g&ods to
the city would now have to prove that
they were overcharging for them.
""My bill would stop legalized robbery.
When I have held up bills and claims
because the ptlces charged were above the
market price, the corporation counsel con
fecsed Judgment on the ground that the
city had no defense, as fraud had not
been proved. When my bill to etop legal
ized robbery was Introduced, the corpora
tion counsel hurried to Albany to defeat
it. The city has "been robbed outrageously
in the purchase of supplies. There Is a
concerted movement on the part of certain
departments to prevent the finance de
partment from protecting the C!tjT Treas
ury. In some cases large reductions were
made on bills because they were fraudu
lent and the prices charged were more
than double the market value, yet If these
cases had been taken to court, the counsel
would not defend because fraud had not
been shown. I must prove fraud or there
is no defense.
"To piovo fraud and bribery is a diffi
cult matter. In one case safes were pur
chased by the city for $500. The Mayor
of Mount Vernon advertised for bids for
the same kind of safes and got them for
$001. My bill would stop all this robbery
and bribery and theft, "but the corporation
counsel In his official capacity goes to Al
bany and uses his Influence to defeat the
bill. The people can judge for them

Commission from one of the surveying
parties now in the field. It has been
found that' it will be Impracticable to
build the proposed dam across the San
Juan River just above the mouth of the

THE GREATEST BENEFACTION OF SCIENCE CHECKS
DISEASE BEFORE IT REACHES THE LUNGS.
Doctor Cop eland Again Urges the Truth of His Theory, the Only
Sound Theory in Lung Disease, the Theory Proved a Thou
sand Times, and Again a Thousand in His Practice, That
the Only- Proper Course, the Only Rational Course,
the Only Scientific Course in the Treatment
of Consumption Is to Cure the
So much interest has been aroused by
the series of articles by Dr. Copeland on
tho relation of 'catarrh to consumption
that he has, in the following talk, ex
plained what his experience has taught
him In all the years of his practice con
cerning catarrh and consumption. Dr.
"The great trouble that I find Is -to ex
plain to the people si they will under
stand the Importance of taking care of
their breathing apparatus, which Is un
doubtedly the most Important part of the
body. While man may live quite a time
without food and without water, he dies
In a very few minutes when robbed of air, I
and if ho does not get air In sufficient f
quantity and of proper quality, he will
suffer and linger along until he develcps
an incurable disease, f-om which he will '
die. It is very hard to show the people I
how simple, common catarrh, which is so i
prevalent. Is a forerunner of such serious
consequences as bronchitis and consump
tion. GREAT RISK TAKEN
"I would like to appeal directly to every
thinking person In the world with a posi
tive fact, namely, that each one I ad
dress I want to consider that he is run
ning a gauntlet that is an extremely risky
one when he allows himself to remain un
cured from any form of bronchial or
catarrhal lung disease, for no matter who
you may be, you stand one chance out o
seven of dying of consumption, in otner sumption Is to prevent it. I know that

fully one person out of every five develops
consumption, while statistics prove beyond
question that one out of seven dies from it.
"In a climate like ours, people are sub
ject to diseases of the breathing apparatus,
and the greatest number of those so affect
ed begin with catarrh of the nose and
throat, which, after a time, extends into
DANGER FROM CATARRH
"There are some persons, and Indeed a
number of them, who have an immunity
from consumption, but It will be found on
close investigation that such persons do
not contract colds easily and do not devel
op catarrh from the colds. Every person
who has catarrh is carrying around with
him a disease that is liable at any time to
allow the development of consumption.
"In some peicons the strength and vital
ity of youth allows them to prevent the
advancement of catarrh 'Into the lungs,
and while they may be annoyed with nasal
or throat catarrh during the early part of
their life, they suffer no serious consti
tutional disease as the result of it. But
even such persons, when they grow old.
find they are beginning to cough, and the
cough lo always 'cry bad during the win
ter, and gradually gets worse as they grow
older and weaker, until at last it carries
NO IMMUNITY FOR THE OLD
"It used to be thought that only young
people and people of middle age developed
consumption, but it has been found of late
years that there are Just as many old peo
ple who suffer from consumption as there
are young people, and that old people suf
fer from that form of consumption almost
exclusively that results from catarrh.

"It Is like this: Youth can resist much;
good constitutions can resist much, but
in the latter end of man's existence his
fires burn lower, his youth is gone, hl3
vitality is gradually sapped and disease is
allowed to extend into his vital parts.
"As I have said before, catarrh In the
form of catarrhal consumption Is not tho
only form of consumption, but the history
of nearly every case of consumption .'a
l the history of catarrh that has extended
from the nose to the throat, from, the
throat to the bronchial tubes, and thence
to the lungs. Those people, even after
they have developed consumption, and find
that they still take cold easily and have
exaggerated catarrhal symptoms, often
try to persuade themselves that they are
only suffering from catarrh, and that their
lungs are not affected.
NO CURE FOR CONSUMPTION
"I have spent as much time as any doc

eo-called cures of consumption. I find,
after 20 years of Investigation, that thero

it Is my aim. and has been for years past,

I am able to prevent consumption."
