K-innlnder if thc tl(i). Senator '""nf
i ty will taUo the llnor when the bill
b, taken up, and Ik expected to occupy
H'.e remaining portion ot the duv,
v.uatever time there may bo let-'.
.- natnf rroctur has given notice that
i chairman of the committee on
.igrieultuie, he will call up the nc:t l-
ullurul tipptoprlatlon on Tuesday.
Thcio will be no effort to prevent dls
id.irrmenl of the subsidy bill by the
impropriation bill. The committee on
appropriation hopes to bo able to re
rioit the fortifications appropriation
bill by thc time the agricultural hill
hall be disposed of, and thu army ap
propriation bill Is expected to lie re
ported later In thc week.
The plan Is to have all appropriation
bills nrtr.il upon promptly, it possible,
but when thetc nto no bills ol that
haracter befoie the senate, the sub'
ddy bill will eontlnuo to have tho
ilcht of way. Xo dciision has been
leached yet an to whether there will
tie renewed elfort to secure nlRht tjes
slons, on the subsidy bill, but tho
prenl In lleatlonu me that tlfre will
lie no I in ther Immediate attempt In
hat direction. The opponents of tho
hill declare that In case of a renewal
'l tho nlyht meetinf,'., the frlenda i.t
the till will bo compelled to keep con
ttantly in the chamber a quorum of
their own. While they mmln frequent
demand for a call of this senntc dur
ing the ccniiiR sessions of last: week,
they nluajs themrelves replied to
their names when call"d. It is now
understood to be the purpose not to
i'o this In en so of further effoits to
brihj: the bill to a vote by carrying
thc r trite nicetliiRd Into the night.
MtHli interest Is felt In the ettort
ik1i Is to be made to secure lesls
tatlon hi cunncctiun with tho army ap
proprntlon bill in regard to th Phil
ippines and Cuba. It has been always
supposed that any attempt In clthm
direction would open up the entlte
colonial policy of the administration
and lead to interminable debate, but
thcie is now unquestionably a iulet,
Ktttieral acquiescence in the effort to
be made for Philippine nnd Cuba lecr
islation. Whether this Is duo to the
fact that there has not been time to
consider thc hearing of these two pro
posed amendments sufficiently, or to
the general desire to avoid an cxtta
session of congress, does not yet up
pear. He that as it may, a majority at least
of the Democrats seem quite willing
that a vote should be reached on both
these provisions. Indeed, it is under
stood to b tho position of Senator
Jones, of Arknnsas, and of bis im
mediate supporters In opposition to the
subsidy bill that there will bu no ob
stacle to getting u vote upon any bill
before the senate, except th ship bill
nnd possibly the oleomargarine bill. In
all probability, however, the Cuban
and Philippine questions will be ills
cussed a consldeinble length and,
even though there mny be no .let-It
to defeat them, they may be used to
hold off the subsidy bill.
Tho committee on the Phlllnnlnea
will hold a meeting Munday and It i3
expected will agree promptly njion a
favorable report upon the Philippine
amendment, but the question will
Vrobablv not be taken up In tho sen
ate until the army appioptlatlon bill
shall be reported. The Cuban com
mittee probably will meet luter in tho
In the House.
The revenue reduction bill will enmo
before the house tomorrow, with son;o
prospect of nn animated discussion.
The Watts committee has already de
termined on a jecomniondullon for a
disagreement to the senate amend
ments to the bill and that a confer
ence with tho senate bo nsked. Mm
this determination has aroused con
siderable feeling among thu majority
members of the committor) nnd this
my find expression when Chairman
Payne presents thu report and moves
for a conference. Following this mit-
ter, the diplomatic unci consular tip
ptoprlatlon bill will claim attention,
the. general discussion of foreign qucs
tlons, particularly tho Philippines, be
ing still open. Tho army appropria
tion bill and the sundry civil bill nlso
will receive consllsration during tho
-mong tho measutcs o general
legislation likely to conic up is tho im
portant bill for govcrnmnnt nld and
participation In the .nulslnua pur
chase exposition, to be held at Ht.
Louis-, Chairman Tuuney, having thu
subject in charKo ban i-cebed as
surances from the speaker of early
recoKtiltlon and expects to take up iho
bill during the Prut part of tl" week.
Tim bills ICllllllg o'llieis of tier re
rnu cutter service nnd establishing a
standardizing bureitu, continue to be
ers when npporprlatlon bills
c tlio right of way. Legis
lation regarding West Point hazing
may como up nt any time, although It
is likely to be dealt with In confer
ence In connection with the military
academy appropriation bill.

Topeka, Kant... Teb. 10. Three thou
sand male citizens of Topcka In mass
uu-etlnpr here today decided that the
numerous Jolntu of tho city must closo
their places. They issued an ultimatum
Klvlncr the Jolntlsts until Krlduy next
nt 12 o'clock noon to rpilt business. If
this shall not be done, warnlnu wus
fTivcn that a thottsjud armed men
would Immediately move on the joints
and icmove them by force. Today's
action Is the result of the crusade
started heie by Mrs. Nation. The
meeting was a temnrkable one i:i every
lesneet. It w.ih called by a commit
tee of the Law enforcement league,
and was attended by nearlv all the
prominent buslners men of the city. A
feelhiK of Intense earnestness pervaded
tho meeting. The meeting was opened
with prayer. Alter n few nddivsi;s,
a n ultlmntnm was proposed nnd pastil
amid enthuslnMU. The ultimatum com
manded the nflieers of the city and
county to pet form their duty regard
ing the closing of the joints. The ulll
eeis were warned that they had waited
long enough. The pioperty owneis In
whose premUes the Joints arc kept
weie nlso warned that they should
abate the nuisances nt once or the
people of Topeka would not be respon
sible for the damage thai might ensue
to thc buildings.
Twelve hundred men signed their
names to curds pledging themselves to
be ready nt a moment's notice to join
the army which has been recruited to
stamp out the joints by the time the
limit of the ultimatum expires.
There seems to lie no question that
the next few days In Topeka will
see Interesting developments, possibly

By L'xclnsiw Wire from The Aoiiilel I'l"'
Cincinnati, Feb, 10. Notwithstand
ing the proceedings In couit here and
the attitude of the governor tie tho
slate; capital this has been a busy day
with the sporting mn in Cltieiima'.i.
All outwaid tlgns loot; Ilk the im
of the gtent eoinlng event with them.
Manager Madden and 1tw Ituhlln
were kept busy with lsltors at the
Country club early In the day. .Mana
ger ISnidy, Kd. Coo.t and ollf' ic1!

could be admitted ut Initli pliiC'". Tran
Sharkey nnd "Spldr" Kelly air happy
over their pi eispct.i, as they claim
Sharkey is to have; the next chance,
no matter whether Jeffries or Uuh
lln wins. Sharkey will challenge the
winner at the llngslde. All the visit
ing und local sport aw e"C pressing
their opinions In th" chances of the
two men here and these opinions gen
erally pick .Teif as I lie winner, al
though nil coniede th.it Ituhlln is tn
the better condition. Some say that
Kuhlln has been over-trained. ltotli
will go through thPlr regular practice
Monday. They will slacken their ex
ercise Tuesday nnd still more on Wed
nesday, doing very little on Thursday.
They rest on Friday.
As the preliminary bout between
Cbilds and Martin for ion round i is
not to be called until ' o'clock Friday
evening, It miy b late when Jorfrles,
and Kuhlln inter the ring for thetr
twenty rounds. Meantime, there i
much anxlet nwr the decision of
Judge Holllstcr and the action of Cov
entor, Nash. It will be known within
n day or two whether Judge Holltstee
will giant a pctirmucjit Iniunctlon
against the contest on the ground (
n public nuisance', nut the promofri
eVi not know whal the governor mny
do oe when he will do It. Hven after
the fight shall begin, llwy do not know
at what moment the state fores niav
Interfere, as three tegbnents of mili
tia ate said to bo now under march
big orders. They will know, however,
on the day of the contest, whether thft
troops are here, or win ther they arc
on the way o ns to gel here in tliiv
to stop the contest. While the nnivor,
with his permit, piomised a tcrev of
police to maintain jrder, it Is not
known that the police will protect thu
event to the extent uf cii ling and re
sistance to the militia.
Police Will Bo Discreet.
The police may not fall In to assist
the mllltla. but In no event will the
pollc- resist the state ttoops In rally
ing out any oreleis of the governor.
While thc promoters of the contest
have done everything in their power
to hold the boxing contest peaceably
ami lawfully, they elo not piopo,e to
resort 'to anything to tho e.onttary If
the contest shall not be held. Home
reports have been circulated that
there would be more excitement over
the collision between thu state and
municipal authorities than over tho
boxing contest, but there is evidently
no ground for such apprehensions.
There has been oonslderhljle talk to
day about postponing the contest. If
Judge Ilolllster shall allow the Injunc
tion on Tuesday, the defendants will
nt once appeal to the Circuit court,
and If they lose In that Intermediate
rnu.it they will carry the cute to the
Supreme court, which does not sit
again till Februuiw 19. If tills course
! pursued, the content may bo post
poned from one to two weeks.

an est of three men who tire supposed
eif being Implicated In the theft of a
fulled Stales expivss safe said to have
Thu Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul
train, on which the safe wns taken
from Sinus city, nnlved at Manila at
M.'i o'clock on Saturday night. The
Omaha, train was late, and Jnineii Stur
tevnnt, uf Sioux City, the epres tnes
st'iiKer, did not hurry hi unloading the
goods and packages: from his car. The
express safe, with other articles, wiu
unloaded nnd placed on a truck on the
depot plat foi in, and then Slitrtevant
and tho bagguiiemnn went to the other
end of the plntiorm to get another
truck load. When Sltirtcvant lelurued
he noticed that the articles on the
truck were disarranged, and u glance
showed .that the lion box was gone.
There was gnat exi Itemu nt, and no
time was lost In spreading the iilaiin.
City Miit'shnl Fen ell hntll assem
bled a posse nnd vigorous work whs
begun. Snow lay thick upon the
ground, and it did not take long to
discover the tracks of two persons who
evidently had bejen carrying some
heavy object directly from the ttuck
ns It stood upon the depot platfnitu.
They can led the safe a distance of
about two blocks nnd then loaded It
Into n wagon, which bad been left
there in waiting. The wnnon wns
driven about n mile and n half into
the count! y and there the safe wns
fon ed open and the contents were ab
stracted. The iun then abandoned the
safe and went their way on n new
track. It was not elltHrr.lt to tram
thrni, however, and this morning thtee
arrests were made. Their names are
John Jackson. John Stovalt and Charles
Hayes. All rue men who live at Ala
nlla nnd are well-known.
Evidence Will Prove Conclusive.
Their reputations hcreiofoie hao
nol been bad. They stoutly piote-st
their innocence, bur the attornevH be
lieve the evlelenoe against at le'-st '.wo
of them will piove conclusive.
The safe which was stolen contained
In the neighborhood of $40,000. J'wclw
I hour and dolbirs was in cash iliel the
remainder was In drafts, i honks and
AVhll the robbery was undoubtedly
deliberately planned, as the how -c'ld
wagon weie in waiting in a roriver.lcnt
spot, it is not lelleved that the men
knew thev were making so i Ii h .1 Intnl.
They bad no means of knov In.r thu
contents of the safe, only tin' II was
ued for carrying valuable.-. Th'V
found an unusually favorable oppor
tunity when Stiuerviitu left trci safe
on the tiuek. and bael it not been for
the tell-tale tracks In the snow. It is
likely that ariest would not have bn
made so promptly.
Jackson, Stovalt and Hayes have
been in tho habit of hanging about tho
depot at train time, but that was no;
considered slgnlflcint ,i3 it In tlie cus
tom of u nitmbor of townspeople nt
Mrs. Jackson, wile of John Jackson,

was released. The examination will
be continued tomorrow. The three
prisoners me In jail, having boon un

The authorities say tile shoes of two
of tho men exactly fit the tracks In
