members to induce the house to adopt an amendment appropriating OOo for a government survey of the Illinois from Joliet down to the Mississippi Post pointed out that a similar nplroPratiDn had been made in tlio last congress for a survey from Lake Michigan to Joliet and that tho extension of the survey was im portant to the further progress of the greatest waterway enterprise now in con templation in this couhtry A Orout Outllnud He said that without doubt the city of Chitago would go iliead and construct a caiml nerai tho lake to the river capable of floating large boats and that the improve ment of i he Illinois bejlow Joliet gave the government an opportunity to connect with the Chicago dnunage channel and make tho most magnificent system of in terior wilder communication in the world Ho quoted Capt Marshalls last report to show that opening up a ship canal from Chicago to the Mississippi would give a water route miles in length in gludiuj the lakes and the Mississippi aijd its tributaries or more than ecjual to one half tho circumference of the globe IIemlornoh9 Opposition A point of ardor made by Ifolmafl was overruled aijcl it Igokeel like it would go through when Gpn Henderson chair man of the coinmitteo spoke in opposition to it and made the point that appro priation of so much importance should be considered by the committee and it failed by only twenty votes Vandcver of Call forma made n stirring speech in favor ol the Illinois route and pointed out the folly of trying to reach the Mississippi by artificial channel which must cross a livide iuO feet high when a natural chan Kl offering a steady ilow of water from he hike to the Mississippi already exists in said that but for the jealousy existing be woen St Louis aud Chicago congress vonld long ago have taken hold of this reat opportunity to open up a waterway almost as important to the commerceof he world as the cntuil nt Panama or Suez Looked witli Suspicion Iii the discussion of the clause appropri vting SMOOOO for the llennepin canal it was made manifest that there is a good liial of suspicion about the llennepin ichemii and that while the point of no iurisdlotion raised against the committee B likely to bo overruled it is not so certain tliit the appropriation will be left in the bill Without doubt tho Illinois river im provement in connection with the Chicago iraimigi channel is becoming stronger than ever in cotigresn aud it the issue enmes between Hvnnepiu and the river as t will bo pretty sure to ooino some day it Is more than likely thab the win IN THE SENATE AND HOUSE not iGllict cruel am unusual pi and been sustained therein by the supreme court does not think it has committed so gross an error as to justify it in interfering STANFORDS FINANCIAL SCHEME The California Senator Gives a Brief Ex planation of His Kill WASHINGTON CITY May addressed the senate yesterday in advoca cy of his bill providing for loans by the government on agricultural lauds The principle of the government loaning nionoy upop property he said is completely es tablished in its present advance of 90 per cent upon government bonds The tre mendous results of energizing this 90 per cent and putting it into activity are ap parent to ajl Equally valuable will be the energizing of the latent forces of real estate The bill confines its provisions for oans to agricultural lands but in time they will probably be extended to some other kinds of property and even to mu nicipalities with proper restrictions Creation of Money Conceded But for the present I desiit W be con servative and take no chances The power the government to create money is con ceded and its valuu is the same whether metal or paper The important point is that it should be stamped by a government whose credit is umlmpeaehable and which has the power of making money The money issued is not intended to ac commodate the farmer alone but as it comes into circulation it will put the means of prosperity within the reach of thos3 who are engaged in tho slhaller and larger industries of the country The bill provides for what may perhaps QOfc im properly be termed a resolution in nmince and I do not expect that it will be adopted until it has been Cully considered by the people and has met with their approval A MADMANS CRIME He Shoots an Invalid and Help less Priest THE VICTIM TEEKBLT

pitched headlong from his chair and fell at full length on the porch feebly crying hrlp his servants reached him he had hardly enough strength left to tall thorn that he had been shot by a stranger and that he needed the immediate attention of a surgeon The old priest was lifted from Im porch carried to his room and laid on a lied 31ood was Kusliifg from nil ugly wound In his abdo men in a perfect torrent dyeing the linen of the bed a deep red Physicians were hastily summoned arid cftsr a hasty ex amination of Father Barretts wound they agreed that his uhauee for life was small aud that a difficult and dangerous opera tion would be necessary not only to deter mine the exact nature of the injury but to remove the bullet from its resting place among the Intestines One Chance In a Thousand Dr Christian Fenger of the county hos pital surgical staff was called in but be fore ho began the operation said that it might result in death In fact he plainly intimated that the sufferer did not have one chmiceju a thousand to pull through the ordeal alive Without the operation said the doctor he cannot live Death in a short time is almost certain With the operation he has just one chance to sur vive Father Barretts friends when they heard this ultimatum unhesitating ly gave their acquiescence to the doctors plans Arrest of tho Assassin After Keady shot Father Barrett he coolly replaced the pistol in his pocket walked clown Sangarnon street to Indiana and then turned east in the direction of Ilalsted street He entered Kings sa loon near the corner and called for whisky which he gulped down with ap pnrcnt relish He called formiother drink and was about to help himself when Of ficer Loftus who had been apprised of the shooting placed him under arrest Keady offered no resistance When the officer took the big revolver from his pocket he held his hands above his head and said he had no more use for it Did It for SelfPreservation I did want to kill Alderman Phil Young and my brother Joe he said but Ive gotten over that now There were threats of lynching but the prisoner was safely lodged in the station I know I killed Father Barrett he yelled at the top of his voice but I had to d6 it to save my own life If I hadnt I would have died My heart would have ceased to beat He followed this declaration with a series of maniacal screams and gestures that alarmed the crowd and sett timid men and boys scurrying in every direction While on his way to the West Chicago Avenue station Keady was defiant He refused to answer questions and not until lie was placed behind the bars of a cell did he again open his mouth IVcnt to Confession Thursday I simply couldnt help it he said I had a grand impulse that was simply irre sistible Yesterday morning I went to confession at the Jesuit church I told that to Father Barrett and he praised me for it For fifteen years I had been an in fidel I knew sometimes that my mind was affected and that I was inclined to worry too much about trifles About a week ago I went to Milwaukee and saw an eclectic physician He told me to do some thing I knew it was wrong I told him so i came back to Chicago and my heart began to hurt me I felt that those peo ple had dene me some wrong and I wasnt going to die without getting even When I wentvp to speak to Father Barrett my heart hurt me As I turned to leave I felt that I was dving and then I shot him I guess Ill feel better in the morning jpALDINGS PREDICTION KxltitriiciC of tnc Brotherhood oa j Ball Scores j Game AGO May A G Spalding prcsj of the Chicago League club
