Washington, Feb. I. Indian and
and Kentucky locked horns in the
houso today. The debate was fast and
furious from atari to finish. Kentucky
demanded of Indiana the return of W.
S. Taylor, that he might be tried for
the assassination of William Ooebel.
The diplomatic appropriation bill waa
under conalderation at the time. James
of Kentucky, fired tooth sides of the
house by declaring that the "Rough
Rider" president waa rldlculoua In bis
message to congress favoring Interna
tional extradition treaties,' when, one
state could not get from another a fug
itive from Justice, , , ,-.'

If he wanta to, and when we all read
that, we again declare the "king can
do no wrong.' "
These remark! mot with democratic
applause and laughter, but stirred the
opposition to action and for something
like two hours many of the members
were on their feet at ft time, and the
criminal and political records of both
Kentucky and Indiana, were handled
without gloves. When Crumpaker took
the floor In defense of Indiana he waa
hardly able to maintain the threld of
his argument on account of Interrup

The St Petersburg correspondent of

be the outcome of the dispatch of Amer
lean consule to Mukden and Antung,
The Novo Vremya accuses the United
States of a desire to win the hege
mony of the entire globe and to ex
elude Europe from, the far eastern mar

war will break out, it will have to be
instigated by Yankees with their uni

Baron Ilayasht, the Japanese minis

"It Is highly Improbable," the min
ister continued, "that Russia will make
any aggressive move before the Jap-

Russia wishes to do Is to throw the

Johnson, of Manila last night, w ho was
formerly for five years In the diplomat

some distinction there during the Boxer

"The hand of Japan has been forced

vided sentiment In Russia, it Is improb
able that that nation, either, will draw
back. Half of the country wants war

that wants It does not represent the

Cottage Grove, Or., Feb. 3. The
temperance question that has been oc
cupying the minds of the city council
and citizens as well,, for the past few
months, has come to an, end. There
has been a movement on foot among
the temperance people of the town to
raise the saloon license fee from $400
to $800 per annum, a majority of the
present council expressing themselves
In favor of the advancement, but when
the date for the final vote on the mat
ter arrived it was discovered that one of
he eouncllmen who had been the most
favorably inclined to the movement
could not. attend. :
This tied" the remaining eouncllmen
oh the question. Tt was theft up to the
mayor to cast the deciding vote. He
likewise expressed himself in favor of
the measure previous to this fime, but
refuseto stand by his previous con
vicUons. . The matter was finally
compromised by the councQ letting the
license stand as it was, but agreeing to
rigidly enforce an ordinance compelling
saloons to close promptly at midnight,
and also on Sundays. ( , '.

Seattle, Feb. 3. Ray Sensen, or

of age, who bears the marks of unus
ually brutal treatment, was brought
from Tacoma yesterday afternoon by
the Rev. H. D. Brown, superintendent
of the Washington Children's Home
Society, and placed temporarily in the
receiving home at Green Lake. He
tells a pitiful story of ill-treatment ou
the part of those who had him in
charge, and It is about certain, accord
ing to Mr. Brown, that his story will
result In legal action against those re
sponsible for his condition. 1
The boy, when found, was in the
charge of a woman who calls herself
Mrs. Shone and who passes as a
"strong woman" acting in variety the

acrobat, and the pair were known as
"the Shone family." They were lsSe-
