Much Talking Hut Very Little Art ion So Far. £ (By United Press). Washington, April 3. — This session of congress, three months old today, has heen more alert so far to popular clamor than to recommendations from President . Roosevelt. In three months congress has done about 30 days' work. It has .passed three of the 10 regular appropriation bills and none of Mr. Roosevelt's 1935. legislative program. The routine appropriations bills are in shape for speedy disposal but of the administration program only the S4,SSO',000,OOU works bill is near final action. ! Waiting for senate or house attention are bills considered by Mr. Roosevelt to be vital to his program. These include: NRA; public, utilities holding companies; banking, and social se- cnrity. Half a dozen others havo been proposed, although with less - urgency. Contrasted with the lag in acting on Roosevelt bills is the speed 'with -which congress reacted to nationwide protest against income, tax publicity. • Typical, also was the action of hduse leaders in creating an op- portunity to vote on the war veterans' bonus opposed by the administration. Disregard of administration hurry-up, orders represent in part a congressional determination to regain some perogatives sacrificed during the emergency of 1933 when a special session accepted without question bills drafted by brain trusters and other experts. N'ot only docs congress desire to reassert its deliberative rights, but there are personal animosities contributing to delay of Uoosevult bills. The political estrangement of Senator Carter Glass, D., Va., from the president appears to be complete. Mr. Roosevelt has been advised to adopt two in-compatible policies. One is to keep this congress in session until he gets all the major reform legislation desired until 1937. The other 'Plan is to sacrifice three-fourths of his 1935 legislative program and send congress home. The advantage of getting the major reform bills enacted this year Is that it would permit a short session next year and get congress out of the way before the presidential campaign. If Mr. Roosevelt demands action this year on all his, pending bills, cnogress will be here until Aug. 1, and perfiaps later. WNIKI) STORY. Man Who Wounded His Wife Says Slip Tortured Him. Kansas City, Mo., April 4. — Mrs. Nellie A. Hurd lay near death in a hospital here last night as police Investigated the weird story of her husband Herbert, 77- year-old railway crossing watchman, that he shot her as she tortured him in an effort to locate "hidden wealth" he never possessed. While doctors in General hospital performed an operation to remove four bullets he admitted firing into her body, Hurd dramatically tore off his clothing in jail to disclose many stab wounds, burns, bruises and marks which detectives said were made by wire. All these, said Hurd, were inflicted by his wife as he lay sick "•because spirits told her I had a hidden fortune I was giving to the woman next door." Mrs. Hurd, the former Nellie A. McNamara ot Helena, Mont., was not expected to recover. .George W. Herron and Lot Warner of Sharpsville -were transacting business in Tipton Thursday.

Long is not the first spectacular political figure to win millions J followers with plans' for shar- g the nation's wealth; tor is Father Charles E. Goughlln the first orator to attract; the atten' tlon of the voters to economic theories regarded by conservatives as unorthodox/ Financial problems which grew out ot the depression after the civil war gave birth to the Greenback party, the ablest chieftain of which was General James Weaver. To raise funds for carry- Ing on its fight against the South ern confederacy, thej federal government issued enormous amounts of paper currency. Coin was scarce and there were notes even for fractions of the dollar so small that they | were called "shin plasters." All these obligations were printed In green on their backs; hence their name. Weaver, king of inflation, wove his spell on the voters of the Mid West. As a representative of the National Greenbacks-Labor party in which had been! merged remnants of the nativlsts .with labor he went to congress in 1878 as one of 14 such leaders. The Greenbackers at that time controlled fully a million votes. Norn Inated for president by his party In 1880, Weaver found that the movement had begun to dwindle and he had barely a third of the popular ballots -which he had expected. Picturesque personalities pervaded Populism Inj its heyday-Jerry Simpson, the! "s'ockless solon"; "Whiskers" Peffer, "Coin 1 Harvey. "Pitchfork*' Ben Tillman. They are associated with the efforts of the farmer class to get into the political picture. What New Yorkers called "the gay 90'a" were far! from cheerfu in the Mid West. Crop shortages or failures, decline! in the price? of agricultural commodities, the drop in breadstuff 'exports drought, dust storms and cattle diseases added to the gloom o; the agrarian element. '• It was-a-time 'lot ' agitators and there were plenty of them especially, in- Nebraska' and "Kan sas. Out of the old Grange societies and Fariris' Alliances came the • materials from I which thi people's party, commonly known as the Populists, were conjured. i Jeremiah Simpson, who belonged to the pioneer days oi populism, had been a sailor on tfte Great Lakes. In 1 1878 he drift dd to Kansas, where he became a; farmer and a talker. When hif farming interfered j with his ora tofy, he 'abandoned the former and became a friend of the downtrodden. ^For a time.he was identified with the Greenback Union Labor pftfty, was elected to congress three times as a Populist, and was-defeated thrice for that office. , True champion of the tillers ol the soil was the Populist senator from Katasis, William Alfred Pet? fer, known, pertispp itop familiar-; ly, as "WJilpjieri"'Ijecanae of the flowing beard :wbl)h swept hit stalwart breast. jfiffeV, author and oraipr.'.prpclilmjBd the doctrine mat 'ittoe farmer : by virtue of his vocation should control the politics 0^ the coujntry."

'i'Coln" Harvey is npt without honor, for in 1932 he received 800 popular votes for president as nominee of the very young Liberal party. In his eighty-fourth iyear, Harvey occupies himself at his home In Mone Ne, Ark., storing data in a pyramid ot concrete for the benefit of archaeologists of 10,000 years hence. The records explain the various mistakes -which "Coin" Harvey declares will destroy this civilization.; Benjamin Ryan Tillman of South Carolina was a warm supporter of Bryan in the free silver campaigns of 1896 and 1900. His attacks on President 1 Cleveland in 1895 were so violent that.he got the title of "Pitchfork| Ben." Tillman, although he kept his regular standing as a Democrat, was really of strong Populist sympathies. He had been active in the Farmers' Alliance and similar movements in his state, which he represented in the United States senate three terms. Among leaders in the radical realm there probably has been no more remarkable figure In this country than the late Eugene V. Debs, born in Tenre Haute, Ind., 1 son of a well-to-do : grocer. His father gave hfm a sound academic sducation and expected him to enter one of the learned professions. Debs instead became interested in labor. . Debs was imprisoned twice, once for his part in the Pullman strike and again for: "anti-draft utterances during the world war. Sentenced for 10 years to a federal prison, he was pardoned in 1921 and permitted to return to his native city. He received a prolonged ovation. Thousands marched in procession through the streets. The inmates of Atlanta penitentiary had adopted him is a guide and prophet. Grievances of the farmer and laborer were capitalized for demonstration by General Jacob S. Cozey in 1894, when he started to Washington at the head of his army of the unemployed. He had promised to arrive with no less .than 100,000 followers, but only a few hundred were in that tatr terdemalion legion which trailed, weary and foot-sore, into the capital. "General" Coxey retired In his eighties to Masallion. Ohio, of which he was elected; mayor. He Contends tg,at suggestions he made were virtually the same as those inluded in the alphabetical new deal. : ; Rev. James R. Cox, rector of St. Patrick's., cathedral in Pittsburgh, and Jong a champion of the laboring classes, led a much larger army of the unemployed to Washington. Father Cox, by the way, was the candidate of the Jobless party i$ the last presidential election. Appealing to the!:public by his admirable personal j traits was the late Henry George, Journalist and economist, -who believed that the land should; hear all the burdens of taxftioa.

Stock Farms. ONCE 2,500,000 ACRES (By United Press). Corpus ChHsti, Tex., April 4. —The tar flung King ranch, once a virtually Independent feudal domain of 2,500,000 acres, became a romantic memory this Week. | 'Today the King ranch, until Tuesday as vast as the state of Delaware, was a group of dairy and beef stock farms scattered through seven south Texas comities, j ; Valued at §40,000,000, it was partitioned among the heirs of the late Mrs. Henrietta King, widow of the Texas revolutionary- hero who established the ranch late In the 19th .century. Only the •baronial ranch-home, Santa Gertrudis, was left intact. Captain King in his will had asked that the "home ranch" bs kept in | one piece "for generations yet unborn." ' The present home, built at a cost of $300,000, was left to Mrs. King's daughter. Mrs. Alice Gertrudis Kleherg, along with 30,000 acres of land. \ King acquired the ranch with money earned as a steamboat captain on the Rio Grande. He bought it in blocks of thousands of acres for one to. five cents an acre. He; "developed what in effect was a cattle principality, arid he ruled it with an iron hand, asking nothing but to be let alone. ? For years there were' no roads anywhere on his property, only dusty cattle paths. Strangers trespassed on tie King ranch at then- own risk. In recent years a "hug- the-eoasi" hjghway from Houston to the border was forced to da- tour Kenne'dy county because the King heirs would not permit travel through their property. The marriage of King's daughter Alice to Robert Kleberg resulted in many concessions' to progress^ tnat Kin 6 never would have made. After King's 'death in the '80sj Kleberg sold off the rawboned Texas longhorns that swarmed in unruly herds over the King acres and introduced Hereford, Brahama and Afrikander cattle to reprace them. The new stock made better beef and were easier to handle. i In later 'years dairy stock was introduced ; and modern dairy Plants established. ! When 1 Mrs. King died. 10> years ago a trusteeship was established. It expired Tuesday. The ranch was partitioned among descendants of her son, the late Richard King, and among heirs of Robert Kleberg] Among the latter is Congressman Richard M. Kleberg. ;• ' • COLLEGE BASEBALL.
