Washington, Mny 7. Tho senate to

in one amendment, but instead of ac

The discussion took a broad range,
covering first the pass question and
then the race question in tho Southern

wholesale grafting of supplies intended
for relief woik wiix this morning dis

perintending tho distribution of food

load cars of stuff at outside points and
dispatch them lo Htm I'rniicisco and the
(minorities who should receive them,
wholesale looting has been done.
Colonel Mans states that he has re
ceived bills of lading for cars of stuff
which he has found on opening to be
entirely empty. Thin Information has
biH'ti laid before both the civil and mil
itary authorities, and an effort will bo

cate their ill gotten goods.
There is no thought in the minds of
the authorities now that the thefts have
been by responsible parties, but simply
by some of the many gangs of toughs
which have their healqurters on the
water front. It is believed that these
lieoplii have broken into the cars on the
docks while in transit across the bay.
A thorough search of their camps will
be made, and it is expected a great
amount of stolen property will bo un
covered. tieneral flreely feels that the food

The kitchen system will bo given a

Wisconsin lumbermen have been served
with warrants charging them with com

STEVEDORES 00 ON STRIKE.

Oakland, Oil., May 9.- A situation
humorous and serious nt once was cre
ated today by a group of some 50 steve
dores who were at work on the J-olsom-ftreet
dock unloading ( loverninent relief
supplies. While other men are donat
ing their services and sacrificing their
businesses to aid in the relief work,
these sons of toil have been receiving a
bright half dollar for each hour of work
t hey ha vo done.
Now, when the ("loverninent officials
ask these, men to pa;' 40 cents for the
three meals they eat each day on tho
transport Crook, the laborers arc in
censed and withdraw their services. In
a word, the stevedores have, geen paid
the same wages as they received before
the fire, so sav the Government officials,
ami they stride when naked to pay for
their meals n mere fraction of what it
would cost them nt other places.
The work of unloading is ns a conse

ers do not return, men from tho refugee
camps will bo impressed into service.

MAY TRY MANAGER FOR PERJURY
Testified Beforo Interstate Commerce
CominliHlon That Money Was Not
Being Used to Bribe Railroads.
Chicago, May 10 The government
has a rod in pickle for the Standard
Oil Company, when the investigation
into rebutes and other methods is tak
en up here tomorrow by the interstate
commerce commission. It was learned
tonight that a witness had been secured
who is in a position to toll, giving all
necessary data, dates, amounts, etc., of
how the Standard Oil Company engaged
in wholesale bribery of railroad em
ployes in order to crush out tho inde
pendents. This man was employed by
Manager Mayer, of JCansas City, who
has charge of the tremendous distribut
ing stations in Kansas and Missouri.
It is said ho was entrusted with the
work of buying up information from
railroad employes, who told of orders re
ceived by independents, of their plans
for shipments in advance, and various
other details, so that the Standard Com
pany was in a position at any moment
to take such steps as wero necessary to
crush or hopelessly cripple its small ad
versary. The name of this highly important
witness is closely guarded, but it is said
his testimony will create a tremendous
sensation and bring before the federal
grand jury a largo number of western
railroad men who have been in the
secret employ of tho Standard.
Mr. Mayer, it is also intimated, is
open to prosecution for perjury, as ho
swore before tho interstate commerce
commission, when it sat at Kansas City,
that ho had never given any of his
agents money to bo used in bribing rail
road or other men. The testimony will
show, it is said, that the railroad spies
were on the secret Standard Oil pay
roll nt from $10 to $30 a month, depend
ing upon how much information they

II0F3 CP THE RUSSIANS.
THE CZAREVITCH ALEXIS.
Of all the royal children of Europ
tho condition of none appears more
dubious than that of Alexis, the czar
evitch of Itussla and only son of tho
rear. He was born In August, 1904,
at the very darkest moment of the
fortunes of Russia during the war
with Japan. Since then the storm
clouds have become even blacker, for
revolutionary conditions are now rlfo
throughout the Muscovite empire until
the very existence of the throne is
menaced. Not only Is It a question
whether the czarevitch will grow up to
Inherit the throne, but It Is even a
problem whether the czar shall bo
able to retain his crown. Surely be
fore he becomes of age Russia shall
have passed through many political
and economic changes.
The photograph Itself Is sufficient
proof of how admirably the czarevitch
has thriven In adversity, although this
week there was a rumor that he was

MAN A PIECE OF MACHINERY.
Thirteen Rnbatancea Enter Into
Mnke-l'p of Unman Uodr.
The human organism has been often
and aptly compared to a fine piece of
machinery, says the Scientific Ameri
can. The bones of the skeleton, held
In position, moved and guided by a sys
tem of muscles and tendons, fit together
like the wheels and levers of a watch.
The mainspring of the machine Is tho
heart and Its regulator Is the nervous
system. No human hand ever con
structed, no human mind ever Invented
so marvelous a mechanism, for all Its
wheels and levers are Instinct with life.
Millions upon millions of living cells
make up the structure of the body.
Each cell Is a chemical laboratory and
the whole community of cells consti
tutes a great chemical factory, where
no holiday Is ever kept, but vital force
Is Incessantly created and converted,
by wonderful physiological processes.
Into heat, work and electricity, and
life Is continually destroyed and repro
duced. The scientific name of this mys
terious activity of our chemical factory
Let us look a little more closely Into
this complex metabolism of the human
chemical factory. The millions of cells
of which the body Is built up vary In
form and character, in function and
composition. In the first place, we
naturally ask of what materials they
are coniiiosed. Of what does man con
sist? Chemistry gives a precise an
swer to this question. He consists of
thirteen elementary substances, of
which eight are solid and five are gas
eous at ordinary temperatures.
Tho solids are carbon, calcium, phos
phorus, sulphur, potassium, sodium,
magnesium and Iron ; the gtiFes are oxy
gen, hydrogen, nitrogen, chlorine and
fluorine. Each of these elements pre
serves Its chemical Identity under all
conditions. As the eminent Berlin phy
siologist, Du Bols Reymond, has re
marked, an atom of Iron remains the
same whether It is traversing space In
a meteorite, revolving In a car wheel
or cour9lng through a poet's brain In a
blood corpuscle. Science also gives ns
definite Information concerning the
quantities of these thirteen elements
that occur In our bodies. A man weigh
ing about ICO pounds Is made up of:
l-ba. I Lbs.
Oxygen 89.0Carbon 44.00
Hydrogen 14.0 Calcium 3.6
Nitrogen 8. I Phosphorous ... 1.6
Chlorine 1.6 Sulphur 0.2
Fluorine 0.2 1 Potassium ..... 0.1A
Gases 107. S Magnesium .... 0.10
It will be observed that the gaseous
elements exist In our bodies In a state
of very great condensation, for under
ordinary conditions of temperature and
pressure etghty-clght pounds of oxy
gen would occupy a volume of more
than 1,000 cubic feet and fourteen
pounds of hydrogen would occupy more
than 2,000 cubic feet
