The details are bsing kept secret. London, Jan. London has been stirred by.the terriffic battle waged today between anarchists on One side, and hundreds of police and infantry from the tower and artillery- men on the other. How many of the .nnareliistie band took part in the en- gagement, which was in" and around a barricaded house in Sid ney street in the East End, is not definitely known, but so far. after a the burned structure, por- tions of only-two bodies have been dis- crjfed: remains consist of the trunk and part of the head of one snan, and a. few charred bones of an- other. 7t tie opinion that the two des- perados alone for many hours held the police and military at bay. .Thousands, .flocking from- all parts of London, witnessed a thrilling spec- tacle, a steady rain of hnllets, flashes or fire, smoke-pouring from the win- dow's, the house in flames, and finally the men on the roof shouting defiance and the seething mass be- low.

The Scots Guards from the tower were hastily dispatch- ed to the scene, and later a battery of artillery with gattling guns came at the double quick. Their pieces were placed in position, but they did not open fire. Set House Afire.

WILL BE USED IN FUTURE CAMPAIGNS Forcible Illustration for the Direct Election of United States Sena- Pledged to Oppose Lorimer. hcFUSE TO ACT IN HARMONY WITH THE DENEEN FACTION IN ILLINOIS. DEMOCRATS HOLD K BALANCE OF POWER May Result in Another Coalition of Democrats and Lee O'Neill Browne First to Suggest Repetition. By Clyde H. Tavenner. (Special Washington Correspondent.) Washington, Jan. the en- tire country looking on, each indiv- dual member of the United States senate will soon have to go on record either for or against Lorinieiism. Every senator who votes for Lori- merism will have that vote charged up to his record When he comes up for re-election to the senate, of if he ever runs for any other elective position his opponent will be sure to point to the Lorimer and to urge it as a good reason why the peo- ple should retire him. to private life. Every senator knows this as well as does the writer. Those members who are against Lorimerism and all that it stands for are glad to have the opportunity to go on record. But those senators who for any reason feel bound to rote for Lorimer are squirm- ing. The entire matter is very annoy- ing to them. They hope some way may be found or invented so that a direct vote may he avoided. Indications are, however, that the Lorimer senators will have to step out before the people of the1 nation and show where they stand. The fight against Lorimer will he-forced by a motion -declaring that "Lorimer is not entitled to his seat, and, as suci a motion is privileged, it can be disposed only by a, majority vote. The public should watci how their senators vote. It only happens now and then that senators are forced into a tier must reveal their true colors, and the people ought to take advantage of such op- portunities. The vote on the Lorimer report may be considered a thermo- perature on tie proposition of keep- meter registering every senator's tern- ing politics in general and tie elec- tion of United States senators in par- ticular, clean and wholesome. It is hoped the senators wio are making suci a courageous fight to prevent tie adoption 'of the Lorimer report will guide proceedings In the for a Constitutional amendment to senate so that the resolution providing elect senators by a direct vote may be brought before the senate while tie Larimer case is pending, so that both may be discussed at tie sanie time and the bearing of one upon the other clearly demonstrated. Nothing could more forcibly illustrate the need of direct election of senators than the corruption and jugglery by which Boss Lorimer gained-his A progressive is authority for the statement that not fewer than thirty senators are against permitting Lor- imer to remain a member of the sen- ate. This is far from a majority, but the number is large enough to assure a tremendous battle before the case is disposed of. ALSCHULAR LEADER Minority May Also Be Split into Two Factions as Result of Election of Fac- f tion May Bolt. MIGHTY POPULAR IN CERTAIN CROWDS BODY OF AVIATOR HOXSEY CREMATED Ashes Turned Over to Mother Who Will Take Them to Nebraska to Mix in Grave of Husband. [By Associated Press.] CaL, Jan. the shadow of the mountain heights which he had blithely scaled on the wings of the wind, the last words were said today over the body of Arch Hoxsey, who fell to his death at the Domin- gnez aviation field last Saturday. Hundreds attended the funeral. The body was cremated. The ashes were laid in the custody of the. dead avia- tor's mother, Mrs. Minnie C. Hoxsey, who will take them to Aietkans; Ne- braska, and there mis them in the earth, that covers the grave .of her husband. BODY OF MISSING CHICAGO BOY POUND Believed to Have Shot Himself Ac- cidentally and Crawled Under Old Mattress and Died.

The body was hidden under an old mattress and was badly mutilated. The police are inclined to believe that the boy shot himself while playing with a revolver, crawled under the old mat- tress and died. [By Associate! Press.] Jan. republi- can speakersbip conference broke up in a row tonight when sixteen Shurt- leff adherents walked out of the old supreme court room declaring they were dissatisfied and considerably angered at what they term the alleg- ed insincerity of the administration supporters: Ten minutes later Chairman West of the central com- mittee called the republican house caucus to order in the same room. Sixty-five republicans responded to their names on Toll call. The number is an even dozen short of a constitu- tional majority necessary to elect a presiding officer of. the Iqwer house. With sixty-five republicans holding out in one faction; sixteen Shurtleff adherents standing firm in another, one member refusing to take a stand with either republican faction and sixty-eight democrats holding the fort on the minority side, there appears to be no immediate prospects of the general assembly electing a speaker. With the refusal of the Shurtleff faction to participate In the house saaens, all hope of a peaceful settle- ment of the speakership controversy is lost What will happen next seems he- yond the range of speculation. There is a strong suspicion that another coalition of democratic and republi- can votes rivalling that, of two years ago, will organize the house. Lee O'Neil Browne minority leader two years ago was the first member to suggest a repetition of the speaker- ship-election in this session. New Minority Leader. George W; Alschuler of Aurora was tonight selected minority leader of the house. Alschuler received 35 votes, George W. English, of Vienna, his nearest, competitor was given 22. Although the new minority leader was given a complimentary unani- mous vote before the caucus adjourn- ed, rumors of a revolt by the English faction are rife. Men close to the sit- uation said the English followers are preparing to bolt tomorrow when the house convenes, to ballot upon the im- portant matter of speakership. The democratic caucus was called to order by Chairman Boeschenstein, of the democratic state committee. George L. McConnell, of Chicago, was elected chairman. The republican house caucus ad- journed until nine tomorrow morning without taking a vote on the speaker- ship. The Shurtlen" people say they will not go into the caucus unless Representatives King and Wilson are eliminated as candidates.

He car- ried with him the best wishes of all connected with the corporation, says the statement issued, and he leaves with a. feeling of loyalty to and friend- ship for the corporation and all its in- terests, but nothing is said as to his plans for the future. .The first the United States Seel Corporation was Charles M.

"For more than one hundred years it has been part of the unwritten law of the land that a president shall serve two terms and no more and to treak down that unwritten law now would be exceedingly dangerous.

C., Jan. the unatiimous decision the supreme court of the United Slates today decided the federal government could not main- tain tlie so-scalled "Panama Canal Li- bel Suit" against the Press Publishing company of Xew York, in the federal court of New York.

The ruling of the court today dealt entirely with the act of congress iii 1S9S under which the indictment was brought. The effect of this act was to incorporate criminal laws of sever- al states in force on July 1, 1S9S, into a federal statute and to make them ap- plicable to federal reservations within the various states. Among tliesa state laws was the New York libel law. The court through Chief Justice White stated that while the statute left no doubt where the act done on. reservations which were expressly pro- hibited aurt punished as crimes by law of tie United States, that law -was dominant and controlling, yet, on iha other hand, where there-was no law ai United States that had expressly pro- vided for tie punishment of offenses: committed on reservations, .all acts done on such reservations which were made criminal the -law in several states were left to he punished under the applicable statutes.
