JAYNE BILL KILLED
In the Senate After it Comes From
the Committe to Which It
Uncle of Czar is Blown to Atoms
With Bomb Thrown by a
Russian Revolutionist '
BY A VERY CLOSE VOTE
COACHMAN ALSO KILLED
The Local Option Law Remains the
Sauji as at the Last Elec
tion Vote 14 to 15.
Palem, Feb. 17. The time of the Sen
ate was taken Thursday and Kridav in
discussion of the Jayue bill to amend
the local option law.
The senate committee on education,
Haines, Loughary and Pierce, reported
a substitute that left the original bill as
it passed the house in unrecognizable
form. It was the local optioD bill
amended by its original friends.
On motion of Pierce the report on the
substitute was adopted. Malarkey ably
answered Pierce, who defended the edu
cation committee substitute. Malarkey
then moved that the Jayne bill and sub
stitute with amendment offered by Sen
ator Coe be referred to the committee
on judiciary. Vote 14 to 14. Decided
to refer by President. The judiciary
committee worked nearly all night on a
new bill, that was practically the Jayne
bill with amendments to remove objec
At 10:30 the bill was reported back
by the committee on judiciary, and the
second day's debate began by Milarkey.
On reference to judiciary committee the
Marion county senators voted against
the report of the committee on educa
tion. At 11 :15 the amendments to the
judiciary committee wore adopted, 15 to
14. Booth spoke and moved indefinite
postponement. Bowerruan and Kuy
kendall chanced their vote and it was
16 to 13.
The ayes on killing the Jaynes bill
were: Booth, Bowfrman, Carter, Co
show, Haines, Howe, Laycock, Lough
ary, McDonald, Milhr, Nottingham,
Pierce, Smith, Wheaidon, Wright. Kuy
Noei: Avery, Biownell, Coe, Ccke,
Croisan, Karrar, Hobson, Hodson, Hol
man, i.'alarkey. Rand, Sichel, Tuttle,
On the final vote Bowerman and Kuy
kendall changed on the ground that
there were not enough votes to pass the
Jayne bill as amended.
The most far reaching political com
bination was made to defeat the Jayne
bill. It was managed by the Democrats
in the senate with great skill. They
had the aid of McAllister, the Ohio
champion of the Anti-Saloon League,
the Prohibitionists and Mr. U'Ren, the
author of the initiative and referendum.

Salem. Eeb. 17. Oregon last night
joined New Jersey and several of the
other Eastern states when the House of
Representatives passed a bill providing
for the punishment of wife-leaters by
whipping. The measure was introduced
by Senator Sichel. The bill did not
pass the House ithout opiKsition, the
result of the vote showing 37 ayes and
16 naves. Vhi the bill will not go
into eff ct until after it has been signed
by the Oovernor, its enactment as a law
is assured, as the state's executive rec
ommended such legislation in his mes
sage to the two branches of the legis
lature. Linthicum earnestly advocated the
bill and referred to the excellent results
which had followed the enactment of a
similar law in Maryland. Wife-beating
had been common in that State until it
was made punishable by corporal pun
ishment, and then it ceased almost alto
gether. Mears also spoke in tehalf of
the biil, and instanced a MM which bad
occurred in Portland, where a man had
not onlv beaten his wife, but had stam
ped upon her face with corked boots:
such brutality, he declared, was proper
ly punishable with the lash.
Smith of Josephine opposed the bill,
on the ground that the enactment of
such a l.i w would lea relapse toward
barbarism. It was plain that Smith
had taken the unpopular end of the dis
cussi n. but he was not daunted by that
and made an eloquent protest against
the p.iesage of the bill. Linthicum re
plied warmly to Smith's arguments, in-'
sisting that a crime so revoltiong to hu
manity must be punished with unusual
Mr. Smith declared that such action
would be taking a step backwards in the
advancement of civilation. It would be
barbaric, inhuman and worthy of sav
ages and degenerates. He stated, how
eTer, wheD he had cooled down to a cer
tain extent, that his main objection was
to the clause which left the enforcement
of the whipping-posts to the discretion
of the court Thi", he stated would res
ult in the unjust discrimination between
1 the rich and poor man. The man with
influence, no matter how Jguilty, could
easily escaje punishment, while the
poor laborer would have to undergo the
humiliation and cruelty of being whip
ped like a dog, which would reflect Jon
i his wife and children,
OF THE BEST QUALITIES
President Tells Secretary Hitchcock
and Mr. Moody That They Must
Protect the Government.
I ! : I
Washington. D. C. Feb. Ill There
was a conference at the White House
yesterday iu which the President. Sec
retary Hitehe.ick and Attorney-Oeneral
Moody participated. The President was
anxious to have a full statement of the
Government's cases against Senator
Mitchell and Representatives Hermann
and Williamson and of the grounds
upon which these indictments were se
cured. He was given as full an expla
nation as Mr. Hitchcock and Mr. Moody
could make. The President was deeply
interested. When all explanations were
made, he responded :
'These are grave charges which you
have brought against prominent Gov-'
rnment officials. You dec are the
facts justify them. I want to say to you ,
now that if, in view of what has trans
pired, you fail to make your charges 1
stick and allow the Government's cas?
to fail, vou will place the Government
in a very bad light. In running down
these frauds you have represented the j
United States Government, and it would
be a grave thing to m ke such serious i
charges and be unable to substantiate :
Havt Abundance of Proof
Secretary Hitchcock promptly replied:
Mr. President, so far as I am con
cerned, I have no fear. We have plen-1
tv of evidence to sustain the indict-
u.ents When the time comes we will i
bring forward an abundance of proof
and will le entieely vindicated."
I'resid-.nt Roosevelt has at all times j
given hi? Cabinet officers the widest lat
itude in their efforts to locate and bring j
to justice every person implicated in I
land frauds, regardless of his position or I
previous record. He has so far sus
tained Mr. Hitchcock in every move he j
has made, and he now holds Mr. Hitch
cock and Mr. Moody responsible for se
curing a successful termination to the ,
sensational indictmenrs which have
been brought through the joint efforts !
of their two departments. As indicated :
by the President, things have reached j
such a stage that there is no lacking
out ; the cases cannot be quashed, hut
nn-t all be brought to trial. He fully
realizes the seriousness of indicting any
man, and particularly a Senator or Rep
resentative in Congress.
will Insist oi Fair Trial
Since three memliers of the Oregon
delegation, along with other prominent
officials and citizens, have been brought
under a cloud of indictments, the Presi-
ient is determined that they shall have
a fair trial, and he will insist that the
Government fully show the grounds
upon which it asked for and securtd
these indictments. Other members of
the Cabinet agree with the President
that it is now up to Messrs. Hitchcock
and Moody to "make good," for if they
fail they lay the administration open to
Mitchell Will Serve Oat Term
In this connection the belief is ex
pressed in Washington that Senator
Mitchell will be able to hold on to his
seat in the Senate for the remaining two
years of his term. If he should be
found guilty in Judge Bellinger's court,
he will no doubt appeal, and it will be
all of two years before he exhausts the
resources at his command. Meantime,
like Senator Burton, he has a right to
retain his seat.
Sensetion in Cody Trial.
"Cheyenne, Feb 16. In the Cody di
vorce case today Mrs. C. A. Parker,
wife of a former foreman on the Cody
ranch, testified that there were no
houses of ill repute nor Indian villages
near McPherson, refuting the testimony
of Harry Blake, who swears Cody'fre-
quented the houses and was with an
Indian woman at McPherson. Witness
said she was compelled to send her
daughter away from the ranch because
of the foul language of Mrs. Cody, who
also drank considerably. She said Mrs.
Cody poisoned valuable dogs owned by
the colonel. She interferred with Fore
man Parker and finally drove him from
A profound sensation was sprung
when Mrs. Parker stated that Mrs
Cody had told her Cody had been too
intimate with prominent women . She
said she complained of being neglected

think the accidental discharge of Rogers

it would have been impossible for Rog

through his arm and body, as if he had
