Jumped to his feet to protest against
this attack upon a friend of his Mr.
Bailey waved him aside with the
declaration that he would not tolerate
any interruption in the defense of
"that miserable dog."
Altogether Senator Bailey's attack
on Hearst was the most bitter that
has been heard on any man In the
senate in a long time. It was only one
of many spectacular features of the
Texas senator's swan song. The speech
itself, which lasted for almost four

Bailey upon the initiative and referen

Bail For Ironworkers Placed
SUPERSEDEAS WRIT ALLOWED
Court of Appeals Fixes Bond at $10,
. 000 For Each Year of Sentence Im-
, posed Amount Too High to Free All.
. Bonds aggregating $1,100,000 must
be given if the labor leaders convicted
of conspiracy to transport dynamite
are to take advantage of the granting
of a writ of supersedeas by tbo United
States circuit court of appeals in Chi
Whether this sum can be obtained
was admitted by counsel for the de
fendants to be a matter of doubt, but
they expressed belief that at least
some of it could be procured enough
to accomplish the liberty of President
Frank M. Ryan and a few others until
decision has been reached on an ai
peal, for the filing of which the court
granted sixty days. !
The decision Involves only thirty
two of the thlrty-threo men In the
penitentiary, as Herbert S. Hockin
will not' appeal. i
Judges Baker and Herman heard the
arguments and the decision was given
orally by Judge Baker. He took or.
caslon to intimate that undue haste
was manifested in Indlanap:ilis in com
mitting the defendants to prison. I
The writ was issued largely on the
point raised by the defense that the
ironworkers were convicted of a con
tinuing offense, conspiracy to commit
offenses continuously. In fixing the
amount of bail, the court was in
fluenced by the fact that the offenses
involved are not extraditable.
A basis ot $10,000 for each year's
sentence was used by the court In
fixing the bond. As Ryan was sen
tenced to serve Beven years, hU bond
was fixed at $70,000 and the same
ratio was pref.rved throughout. ',
Peeling potatoes In the kitchen, car.
penterlng and constructing steel
buildings In the federal penitentiary
at Leavenworth Kan., were some
of the' regular duties assigned to the
thirty-three labor union officials con
victed in the dynamite conspiracy.
-Olaf A. Tveitmoe was assigned to
do kitchen work, among his first duties
being the peeling of potatoes. Frank
M. Ryan, president of the union, was
assigned to work In the carpenter
shop. Peter J. Smith of Cleveland also
was assigned to the carpenter shop. 1
Because of his feeble condition
Henry W. I.egleitner of Denver, one
of the ironworkers' executive board
members, was given oitdoor work. He
will assist in the manufacture of
bricks for new prison buildings.
Another ironworkers' official who
was taken off his trade was Eugene
Clancy of San Francisco. As Clancy's
health Is not good It was decided to
allow him to work In the storeroom.
Other prisoners were given jobs on
steel construction work.

DUN'S REVIEVVOF TRADE
Bank Clearings For Week Show
Dun's Review of Trade says this
"This week's statement of bank
clearings at the leading cities of the
United States displays a considerable
contraction as compared with the two
preceding years, the total aggregation
being only $2.74,722,616. a loss of 6.8
per cent compared with the same
week last year, and 7.5 per cent com
pared with the corresponding week in
"These decreases, however, are al
most, if not wholly, due to the fact
that the week in the two previous

SEVEN KILLED ON
Engine Goes Through Structure
For Third Disaster
HIGH WATER WEAKENED PILING
6ix Men Seriously Injured Financial
Loss Half a Million and Chesapeake
and Ohio's Service Badly Crippled.
A Chesapeake and Ohio engine of
the heaviest type pulling westbound
freight train Xo. 99 plunged through
a temporary bridge spanning the
Guyan river at Guyandotte on the
eastern edge of Huntington, V. Va.
Seven men were hurled to death
and a half dozen more seriously hurt.
The dead are:
F. E. Webber, engineer.
Henry White, watchman.
Charles Had. lie, bridge worker.
Emmett Wood, bridge worker.
James Crawford, bridge worker.
Charles Coyner, bridge worker.
J. G. Wheeler, bridge worker.
The financial loss, It Is estimated,
will reach a half million dollars.
Freight traffic on the road has been
completely tied up and passenger traf
fic was resumed after a delay of sev
eral hours by the use of tracks of the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad.
The Guyandotte bridge, the scene
of the disaster, was known to railroad
men as a hoodoo bridge, this accident
making the third fatal accident on
this structure. The railroad officials
claim that the collapse of the bridge
was due to the piling being under
mined by the high stage of water now
prevailing in Guyan river.
Fifteen men were working on the
bridge and eleven of them went down,
five being rescued from the river. The
others fell under the engine and cars.
So far it has been impossible to re
cover the bodies of any of the victims.
A passenger train had passed safely
over the bridge a fe-v minutes before
the crash, but the fireman and brake-
man of the freight train seemed to
have a premonition of danger and
walked across the bridge In advance.
To this they owe their lives.
The break came as the engine
reached the middle spnn and one car
plunged fifty feet Into the swollen
stream with it.
The ironwork of the bridge is a
total loss and It will require several
weeks to replace the structure so that
direct traffic may be resumed.
INCREASES SOIL FERTILITY
Hill's Experiments May Revolutionize
Agriculture In Northwest.
Into the greenhouses of James J.
Hill in the rear of his residence In
St. Paul, where the railroad man,
without the knowledge of the world,
has been carrying on for the last
two months an experiment expected
to revolutionize agriculture, six men
representing commercial and financial
Minneapolis were guided to witness
astonishing results in wheat, oats and
barley culture, achieved by new
chemical soil analysis and its practical
Phosphorus has been found to be
the great essential plant food lacking
in the soil of the northwest. Mr. Hill
has found the way, he told the Minne
apolis men, to Increase soli fertility.
A trainload of dirt was brought Into
St. Paul in November. Only F. R.
Crane, agricultural expert in the
Great Northern road employ, who col
lected soil from 387 Minnesota and
North Dakota farms, and a few others
concerned with the work knew what
was going on. Small experimental
farms were then prepared.
"This Is what we have done by ex
perimenting on farms in the north
west," said Mr. Hill, handing a typo
written sheet showing that 1,141 bush
els more grain was grown on the ex
periment farms operated scientifically
as compared with the number of bush

Their Efficacy as a Sleep Inducer as
Shown on An Elevated Train.
A man who suffered from sleepless
ness picked up In Austria recently
what seemed to him to be the best
remedy he had ever found, dt was
nothing more or less than a pillow
stuffed with hops. An Austrian peas
ant woman, recommended It not alone
as a sleep producer but as a beauti
fler as well.
Returning to this country the man
bought some New York State hops,
famous for their beer making quali
ties, but to his surprise they did not
work as well as the hops he had tried
abroad. He found out by experiment
that hops that made good beer didn't
necessarily produce good sleep.
After he had sampled a lot of dif
ferent kinds of hops he found that by
mixing hops grown In Bohemia with
nops grown In California and Oregon
he got a combination which teemed
to answer all purposes in thj sleep
producing line. W
He decided that he had hit it right
when he took a couple ot, pillows he
had stuffed with this combination In
his office downtown home with him
on the elevated. He got in -at Rector
street carrying the pillow nd sat In
one of the double seats. ,,Two men
and a messenger boy sat Vith him.
At Fifty-ninth street all three were
in profound slumber. Several other
persons who had been reading news
papers near him were In evident dis
tress iu their efforts to keep aifake.
Inquiry at different drug . stores
seemed to indicate that thenop pil
low idea was a new one, though hops
have long been known to have sleep
inducing qualities, as shown artlcii
larly in the case of beer. According
to those who have tried hop pillows,
you get all the soporific qualities of
the hops In this way without break
ing any temperance pledges orguffer
Ing any harmful effects. New,York

Granite of the South.
When one speaks of granite the
mind naturally reverts to Vermont. It
Is difficult to associate granite with
any section of North America outside
New England, yet it must now be ac
knowledged to the credit of the South
that Georgia, North Carolina, Mary
land and Virginia are producing large
quantities of stone of good quality
which Insures the South a place In
the market at any rate. The annual
output is now worth about $3,500,000
and the Industry Is growing. It niay
be of comparative Interest to know
that New England's output Js about
$9,000,000 worth of stone annually.
