It would txt desirable, from n strictly

The very utmost that can bo hoped fur

Washington, Jan. 23.—In tho senate 

Senator Cullom presented it number ot 
letters favorable and unfavorable to tho 
Anglo-Auierlonn peace treaty. 

Then Turpio (Horn. Ind.) caused a sen- 

sation. Hu mild three weeks ago a formal 
utterance from the secretary of state rela- 
tive to tho Cuban question appeared in 
tho newspapers. At that time there was 
no resolution before tho somite. 

Mich circumstances tho secretary's utter- 
ance wan a bitter dictum, most rude, 
most NWlft and of tho most voluntary 
character. Tho scniito might have passed 
this by, b.ut today tho pub:ioatlon op- 

jn the newspapers to tbe effect that 

a compact had been entered into between 
the secretary of state and tho new premier 
(Sherman) by which thcro was to oo' no 
further action touching Cuba during the 
present administration. "Allow me to 
say," proceeded Tutple, "I regard such 
course as a violation between the legisla- 
tive and executive blanches of tbo govern- 
ment, and has been done only onoo Uotore1 

when Cunning"—lut this point Sherman 
Interrupted by saying, "if tbo senator **' 
fers to tbo publication of today I will say 
there is not tbe slightest warrant for tbe 
statement made. I Imvo not hod no 'vfcwd 
with Olnoy on tho subject and there has 
been no mention of the agreement or un- 
derstanding.") Turplo said he wns glad 
to accept tho disavowal nnd added, "What 
ever difference ot opinion there may he SB 
to the independence of Cuba I think ev- 
ery senator hero favors tbe independence 

pli«bed in fact until tho senate bud exam- 
ined and passed upon It. In his judg- 
ment It was very poor policy to have 
tboso.rcpeatod utterances culling on sera- 
tors to act at once. What if it should 
turn out that there was some unintended 
advantage to Knglund or disadvantage to 
tho United States In tho treaty which 
both parties would correct. 

Hoar sold no man was more desirous 

than himself to see an ora of peace and 
good will, but he wished to enter n pro- 
test against meddling with the serious 
duty of senators. By this time tbe gal- 
leries wore filled and there was Intense In 
terest In the discussion. Sherman fol- 
lowed Hoar, there being added interest in 
bis statement la view of his early entry to 
the head of tbe state department, and bis 
present position as cbnlramn of tbe com- 
mittee on foreign relations. He said no 
onu was more ready than himself to con- 
gratulate the country on tho conclusion 
of this treaty. At tho same time the 
treaty was one involving such grave con- 
siderations that should bave the most 
careful, mature and dispassionate consid- 
eration. That was the present purpose of 
the committee of foreign relations. Tho 
members were about to take up tbe treaty 
to consider it article by article with tbe 
greatest oaro. 
Tho committee said It 

would proceed with all speed compatible 
with interests Involved. 

Thoro was no purpose to postpone or de- 

lay action. Senator Allislon of Iowa, 

how long tho treaty had been under 

oonsldoratibn between tho governments. 
Sherman eald a year, if not longer. 
Gresbaru took active part in the early no- 
gotlatljns. Hour said tbo question had 
been up in one form or another for twenty 
years. Gladstone made a speech on It in 
tho house of commons twenty-five years 
A delegation came from England 

ten yoarg ago bearing a request from a 
majority of the members of parliament 
favorable to arbitration. 
Ibo delegation 

was entertained in Boston and there came 
a favorable 
response throughout tho

llss, were before t!io houso committee on

Interest of the Pacific Cable company of 
New York, against Spaldlnir. company of 
New Jersey. Sorimsor 

months after passage bis company would 
complete tho cable to Hawaii and u yoar 
Inter to Japan. Ho oald in case of war 
with England tbe cable communication 
with Europe would be out oft*. 
Ho said 

tho Htorumont that Japan granted no oth- 
er cable connection wai ridiculous." His 
lino to Japan would give to the people of 
that country over one million dollars In 
tolls. Tho Spaldlng company would build 
to Hawaii and stop. In reply to a ques- 
tion from Patterson of tho committee, as 
to tho truth of tho statement that tho 
company would be dominated by English 
Influence, Sorlmser said, "Of course tho 
company expected to do business with 
British people." Patterson proponed that

Champaign, III., Jan. gi.'.—The annual 

fracas between the members; of tbe fresh- 
men and sophomore olassoH of tbe Univer- 
sity of Illinois occurred last night. It 
leaked out late In tho afternoon that the 
freshmen woro to havo their sooialle In 
Uusy'a hull. Urbona, and at 7 o'clock 
sophomores begun to gather in tbe street 
In front of thu opera houso building. 
Mayor Hubhard hud boon notified that 
thcro would probably be trouble 

tween the men of the two clusses.and, as a 
consequence, he had more than u dozen 
extra policemen on duty in the street in 
front of the building, and some of them 
were, located in different "parts of the 

The flrst arrivals among tho freshmen 

and young women accompanying them 
wore allowed to go into tho hall unmolest- 
ed, but ut about H o'clock the mob of up- 
por class men mndo a ohargc on tho en- 
trance to tho ball. They were repulsed 
by tho police, wbo stood with upraised 
olubs, and In tho scramble ono student 
was arrested and taken away to the city 
When tho sophomores saw that 

they could not break through tho line of 
officers, they went to a building just 
across tbo alloy from tho opera houeo and 
gained entrance to one ot the second Htory 
rooms. From this point they were able 
to look into the dunce hall, and It was tbo 
work of only an instant to throw missies 
which broko out tho glass In at leant 
eight of the windows. This accomplish- 
ed, the dunce hall was Hooded with tho 
chemicals for which tho Unlverklty of Illi- 
nois students have uouonio noted. 

Never in tbo history of freshmen socia- 

bles has any class been able to inhabit u 
room into which tbeso chemicals woro 
thrown, nnd in loss than fifteen minutes 
tho hall wits nearly dosortcrt. Tbe fright- 
ened, freshmen retreated to another part 
of the-building, but declared that they 
would go on with their festivities as soon 
an tho hhll was "aired." 

At 0:80 tbo sophomores made another 

attempt to got into the ball, mid at this 

Mayor Georgo Hubbnrd took tho 

mutter In charge. Ho ordered out the 
Fire department, and two 

streams of water, under hlgH pressure, 
wore turned un the crowd of sophomores 
mussed in tho street. At first they show- 
ed no inclination to retro'it, but finally 
mado u rush pell-mell to tho shelter of 
hallways of adjoining buildings. 

Wbllo tho firemen were fighting tbe 

mass of the mob with streams "f water, a 
half dozen sophomores anil upper class- 
men were attempting to get more ahem- 
Icitls Into tho ball where the party was to 
bo held, and tbroo of them wore arrested 
In the attempt. They were taken to po- 
ll o hoaoqunrtors, and had not )>eon balled 
out by friends at 10."JO o'clock. 

Miss Delia Hnbunbangh of this city, 

who was being escorted to tbo party by a 
freshman, B. M. Thompson, may proba- 
bly lose her eyetght as a result of tho 
nlght'fl performance. 
While iiour tho en- 

trance to tho hall sho and young Thomp- 
son were attacked by a'party (.f sopho- 
mores, who throw chemicals at thorn, and 
tbo fluid entered tbe oycs of tho young 
woman. She was assisted to the office of 
Dr. Bartbalow, and was In groat agony. 
After a hurried examination tho physi- 
cian said the eyes hod been seriously in- 
jured, and tliat perhaps the slgtt would 
be destroyed. A t 9:30 o'clock ho uald tbe 
patient was resting more eBBy, and that 
perhaps she would recover without seri- 
ous results. 

At 10:30 tho streets wore clear of sopho- 

mores, but It wns sold they bod not gone 
to their quarters, and tho polios were ex- 
pnctlng another attack later In tbe night, 
provided the freshmen should nttempt to

tlon of that body, a.'opted at Its December 
meeting, asking tbo board of railroad

tho passenger rate from 8u to 2c per mile, 
tho commission Is of tho opinion that to 
do so at the present time would bo unwlso 
and unwarranted, and would bo unjust 
to the railroad Interest In the state. 
While «onw of tbo great trunk linos In 
Illinois might be able to stand such a ro

which do almost wholly a local buelneFtn, 
und which are now and have been for tho

the trouble to Investigate the amount of

In Illinois during tho last two years, that 
there has been a largo decrease In tbo 
number of passengers carried. This is 
due, In tho judgment of the board, not to 
the amount charged for such service, but 
to the genera! depression In nil llnon of 
business, tho low prices of farm products 
and the umettlcd financial conditions, 
which have hod their effect on tb" pas-

Clear 'Em Out 


We are RoinR to clean up all the odds and ends that we 
have in the house. There is nothing the matter with 
these "odds and ends" - they are just as good shoes as 
they ever were, hut the sixes are somewhat broken and 
we must make room for the big spring stock which we 
hare purchased and which will soon be arriving. When 
wejstart in on a Clearance Sale we do not do things 
hy halves, but we make the cuts so deep thai they com- 
mand attention. In fact 

Prices Are Knocked Silly, 

And remember all the time that these shoes which we 
are offering at such low prices are up-to-date in style, 
well made, desirable, nothing the matter except that the 
sizes are somewhat broken. If we can fit you we can 

've voa a bargain such as you read about in old times 
it seldom see nowadays. Our ladies' handwelt shoes, 

dongola, vici kid sold for $8.00 per pair and were cheap 
at that, now marked down to 
Ladies' hand- 

turned vici kid sh tea, regular #4.00 grade, and well worth 
that price of anybody's money, now only $2.05 per pair. 
Ladies' 82.50 vici kid shoes, in all the new toes; these 
shoes have been the talk of the town at the price—more 
appearance, style, good material and workmanship than 
you could get for the money anywhere else—now you can 
buy on« pair or as many pairs of them as you want for 
only I1.9& per pair. Proportionately low prices on all 
men's shoes. 
Now Is the Accepted Time! 

Now is tbe time to invest. If times seem tight that is 
all the more reason why you should save money in yonr 
purchases of footwear. We invite you to come. Hurry 
up while you will be sure you will be fitted. Come and 
aave yourself rich.

Many strange characters blow Into 

police headquarters 
Tbe latest 

was Lonls Nelhiser, a farmer who has a 
wife and three children residing near 
City. Last 
evening Nelhiser 

-jime into tho presence of Marshal Mason 
and bluntly stated that be wanted 

budy to take him in charge as bo feared 
be would do himself bodily barm. He 
also thought ho wn« going crazy. The 
interest of tho police chief was oxoitod at 
once. Ho questioned the man clcsuly 
and found that ho had been addicted to 
the use of intoxicating liquor; that bo 
was on bis way to Dwight to receive treat- 
ment, and that bo was easily brought into 

tearful etate and would ory on the 

slightest provocation. Nelbiser said he 
had telegraphed to his brother at Dalton 
City to moot him in Deoatur. He said he 
wanted to go back home on tho 11 o'clock 
tialn, but ho wun afraid to go about the 
city, Tho marshal told him ho would see 
that he was taken oaro of, but he would 
have to leave nH bis valuables at tbe 
Nolhiflpr hesitated for a time, but 

finally turned over bis watch and tin 60 
in cash. Then ho was placed ID an iron 
coll. At train time Nelhisor was taken to 
the depot in the patrol wagon and the 
officers saw that bo left tbe oity on the 
train. On tho way down Nelhlser seemed 
to wake up, for ho wonted to know what 
be bad done to bo hauled about in tho 
This morning a brother of Noi- 

hiser appeared nt police headquarters. 
Ho had come in to look nftor Lonls. 

bad received the rooasagb from Louis to 
meet him in Deoatnr and just before leav- 
ing Dalton City, he got another telegram 
signed, J. J. Flynn, reading, "Your 
brother Is dead In Deoatur. 
Come." If 

s reached Daltou City last nigbt bo 

probably walked out to his homo five 
miles from tho village. This forenoon 
tho brother learned that both telegrams 
Rent him were written by Lonis last oven- 
Ing before ho came up town. 
Louis was 

evidently considerably deranged. Now
