On behalf of tho Democratic minority ft in the state legislature Representative B A. M. Durham of Beaver county will In-B uoduce In Uic houso today a resolution B ratifying the proponed amendment to tho B .cdcral conatltutlon providing for tho dl-B icct election of United States senators. A B similar resolution was defeated yesterday B in the senate- ... , , ff The Democrats arc looking forward H with considerable gloo to tho opportunity! of placing the majority members on recti ord concerning this resolution. They aro I M not hopeful of passing the resolution, but B aim to make the Republican memborH Ff vote one way or the other. The Roput)-B llcan state platform and tho Republican a legislative platform for Salt Lnko county i a .'ttvorod tho direct election of United a states senators and the Domocnita an- 1 nounco that thoy will magnanimously M give the Republicans the opportunity to j icdoom their platform pledges, rl In the senate tho resolution failed bell caupe It Jacked one voto in tho u affirmative. Sovon Republicans and two H Deimocrata voted for tho resolution and H ovcn Republicans voted against It. Two 3 Republicans declined to voto either way, Wtiti which was In effect voting against it, r' sluco it requires a constitutional majority fH of ten votcn In tho senate to pass a mil resolution. A , A. There are fourteen Domocrata in the houso on whom the Democratic leaders say thoy can rely for fourteen votcn in favor of tho resolution. Nino Republicans, with these fourteen Democrats, will be sufficient to pass tho measure, and In case the resolution is passed by tho houcc. tho sennto will bo given another opportunity to pass on It. It i probable that when the resolution U Introduced today in tho houso tho author will move a suspension of tho rules in order to placo It on Its final passage. This will require an affirmative ypto of two-thirds of tho membership, which can hardlv be hoped for by tho proponents of tho resolution. Howevor, the rules of tho house provido that on the request of five members the roll shall bo called on any question. This will givo the Democrats tho opportunity to placo the. Republican members on the question the moment it iff introduced. Should tho motion to suspend the rules fail tho resolution will bo referred to a itommittoc. Should there be a disposition on the part of tho committee- to burr It the Democrats aro in a posit on io secure a votr occasionally on a motion to take the bill from tho committee. Democrat are rejoicing oyer the opportunity to play shrewd politics. Should the resolution pas3 tho leglslaturo tho Democrats will be In a position to point to tho fact that thoy resurrected tho resolution nnd forced its passage after the Republicans had killed It. Should tho resolution fail tho Democratfl may blame tho Republicans, declaring that tho measure wa killed by the Republicans over tho protest of the Democrats.

I TWO WOMEN SAVED FROM ' OPERATIONS 1 By Lydia EL Pinkham's Veg- ct&ble Compound Their Own Stories Here Told. Beatrice, Neb. "Just after my mar- ' riage my left sldo began to pain mo and the pain got ao severe at times that 1 jjjj suffered terribly with it. I visited three i doctors and each one wanted to operate j yi' ! on roe but I would not consent to an op- ( iy ; eration. I heard of the good Lydia E. ' Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was doing for others and I used several bottles of it with the result that I haven't ' fccen bothered with my side since then. i am in good health and I have two little ; rjirls." Mrs.R.B.CiiiLD,Beatrice,Neb. " The Other Case. Cary. Maine. "I feel it a duty I owe to all suffering women to tell what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound did for me. One year ago I found myself a terrible sufferer. I had pains in both sides and uch a soreness I could scarcely straighten upattimea. My back ached,-, 1 had no appetite and was so nervous I could not sleep, then I would be so tired mornings that I could scarcely get around. It seamed almost impossible to move or do a bit of work and I thought I never would be any better1 until I submitted to an operation, but my husband thought I had better write to you and I did so, stating my symp- lome. I commenced taking Lydia E. rinkham's Vegetable Compound and soon felt like a new woman. I bad no pains, slept well, had good appetite and rlm could do almost all my own work for a J "fal family of four. I shall always feel that 1 owe my good health to your Vegetable Compound," Mrs. Hayward Sowers, '"arr, Maine. UI-POOLSELLIG BILL PUSSES HOUSE (Continued from Pago One.) should accept a piece of that candy, the sweetheart's sister would bo liable to a sentence of one year in the penitentiary or n fine of $L'C00, or both. However, another construction that may bo placed on tho wording of tho bill Is that tho only, kind of stakeholder It affects is one who Is tho owner, lessee or occupant of a building wherein he accepts tho custody of tho wager as stakeholder. Tlic whole question came up as a special order at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Kriobel of Salt Lako was the first to be heard. Ho spoke to a question of porsonal privilege. Emphatic in Denial. "J want to say," said Mr. Krlehel. 'that a certain' newspaper this morning published a statement to tho effect that 1 had Introduced, at the request of racing men, my bill which was killed yesterday. I deny that; it is an absolute falsehood. I do not know any racing men. I introduced my bill to correct certain abuses, and my bill would have corroctcd them. I say again that tho statement Is an absolute falsehood that I Introduced that measure at tho behest of any racing men. I will not be misquoted or misunderstood." Mr. JCriebel held a copy of the Hcrald-Ropubllcan In his hand while ho spoke. Ilcnrie of Garfiold, chairman of the judiciary committee, moved tho adoption of tho committee report, which was favorable to tho passage of the measure with tho amendment making betting a, misdemeanor. Ho explained that tho Judiciary committee had stood five to four for this amendment. , Welling of Box Elder moved as a substitute to eliminate tho proposed section providing for a misdemeanor. "I bellevo tho Maboy bill Is comploto in Itself." said Mr. Welling, "and I do not think tho bill requires or permits of this kind of an amendment. Its provisions arc too drastic. It makes every man who makes tho smallest kind of a bet Hablo to a sentence of six months in tho county Jail. In that case thoro would soon bo more and better men In Jail than thoro are on the floor of this house. Don't load this bill down with amendments; they will only weaken It and hamper its enforcement. I bellevo that baok of this amendment lies something whoso purpose Is to defeat the bill." Morris Scores Paper. Morris of Washington followed. First Mr. Morris spoke to a question of personal privilege. "It is nfortunatc for tho people of Utah." said Mr. Morris, "that there Is permitted to bo published In this stato a newspaper known as tho Horald-Ro-publlcan. That paper has spread through tho stato tho report tJiat members of tho Judiciary commlttoo havo sought to put obstacles in tho way of this bill with a viow of kllllne It. and T. have been ono who has como In for a liberal sliaro of those rcportB. "I want to say now and hero that tho statements contained In tho Horald-Uc-publlcan wherein thov charge me with having obstructed tho passage of this bill are absolutely and unqualifiedly false, and I nok tho representative of that paper and the representatives of all tho papers to take down my words. "The falsehoods published In the Herald-Republican are only following out a lino of personal and political slander begun against me two or three years ago. I ask that tho papers put these remarks In a conspicuous place." Little Opposition. Morris then continued his remarks, speaking to tho amendment. Ho said that, the Judiciary commltteo hod held four open meetings and had heard scores of persons. So far as he could rocall only tho president and the secretary of the Btate fair and officials of the Four-State fair at Ogden and ono or two Farmlngton residents had spoken against the bill. "In the Maioy bill," ho continued, "there Is not ono word against betting and every man or woman or child, can bet on horse races to their hearts' content. There arc twenty-serven counties In this state and Salt Iake Is only one or them. I am opposed to gambling of any nnd all kinds, and therefore I am in favor of this amendment." Mabey of Davis, author of the bill, read a telegram from New York wherein the governor of that state was quoted as saying that the New York law, of which the Mabey bill Is a copy, had proved effective. "I havo canvassed tho situation," said Mr. Mabey, "and I feel sure that this bill cannot pass both the house and tho penate if this amendment Is attached to It." Little Bet Harmless. Mabey said he did not see any wrong In placing a little bet on a wrestling match, a football game or a baseball game, which, ho said, were always on the square. He then related tho history of horse racing in tho United States from the earliest times and the legislation adopted in various states to rid the sport of Its gambling feature. "In a statement mado by an Inspector i f the New York police department," Bald Mr. Mabey, "ho said that if tho legislatures passed tho antl-bookmaklng bill It would pass tho best legislation of a quarter of a century." "Becker?" asked Morris. After the laugh at this had subsided, Mr. Mabey paid IiIh respects to tho stato fair. "Now a word about our dear atato fair," he said. "I respect tho state fair and I love to see U succeed; but Just s uoon ns our mate fair departs from tho functions set forth In Its charter. It fhould clooo It3 doors. I have been told by numerous exhibitors that Just a soon an tho racen aro announced the peoplo all go away from the display buildings and In that respect at least ono of the purposes of a state fair Is thwarted." Smith of Kane spoke briefly for thn amendment. Judd of Salt Lake spoke In opposition to It, Dire Prediction. i Barker of Wober raised a laugh when i.o declared that "If we adopt this umendmont we will havo even more rirninals In this house than wo now i.ave." "If the gentleman will yield to a ques-ilon," iiid Pago of Piute, "I want to know how w can have more criminals In this house without Increasing its membership? Southwlck of Utah Kpoke for the amendment, nnd Cardon opposed it, Ben-. nlon of Uintah opposed It because It would have a bad effect, he thought, on the local races In his county. Day of Iron opposed It for like reasons. Chrls-' tennen of Sevier called attention to what i0 took to hi a contradiction If the amendment were adopted. Oldham of , Cache opposed it, and Henrlo of Garfield 1 made an extended speech In its support. Among other things, Mr. Henrlo ald , there would be no professional book-, makers and pool-sellers "If they had not I been trained from Infancy at betting on I horse races, ball game and foot racos." tMcRae Sarcastic. I Crouch of Morgan. Marchant of Summit, Hammond of Grand and McRae of Halt Lako opposed the amendment. The venorablo representative from Salt Ialce paid he did not see any great harm In placing k Jlllle bet on a race or a ball game "or of boya betting a chew of gum on a game of marbles, which Is Just about what this amendment amountK to a chew of gum " The amendment was then Mrlrkcn cat . bv a heavy viva voce vote, and the ro-Jport of the rommlttco favoring th bin SOUR STOMACH, DIGESTION, GAS OR DYSPEPSIA PAPE S 1PEPSI!

(Advert! was adopted, after which tho measuro was put on final passag and passed by a vote of 14 to 0, the full membership of tho house. The bill as it now stands makes book-making a felony, punlahablo by a term of ono year in tho state's prison or by a fine of not exceeding $2000 or both. Tho Thornley bill in the senate, originally a dupllcato of the Mabey bill, was amended bv the senate to make the penalty. In addition to the two-year prison sentence, a fine of ?5000.

X CV YOK OtT, JBt FUSEL SHIFTS HB GROUND CONSIANILY Slayer of Mrs. Madeline Her-' rera and Others Not Responsible Mentally. NISW YORK. Fob. 5. -After repudiating his earlier confession that he constructed and font the bombs that killed Mrs. Helen Taylor and endanger the life of Judge Otto A. Rosalsky, of the court of general sessions, a year ago, George Farroll, the apartment house janitor, who is under arrest for the murdor of Mrs. Madcllna Herrera, in a bomb explosion Sunday night, changed hla mind as to hie guilt tonight and said Ills original story was true. His frequent shifts of ground, his many contradictory statements and other vagaries leave little doubt tn the minds of tho authorities that whatover may be thought of the truth of his stories, ho is not responsible mentally. Farroll now awaits action by the grand jury. He was remanded to the Tombs by tho coroner today after a brief examination at which he would say nothing about tho explosion Sunday. Before his arraignment he said he had no knowlodge of the manufacture of tho so-called Taylor and Rosalsky bombs. After reaching the Tombs, however, he asked to bo allowed to make a fresh confession. In this ho reiterated hlH Htatements of sending tho bombs In revenge. The police, while mystified by Far-rell's contradictory stories, say they have confirmed his connection with the bomb that killed Mrs. Horrora but have not established his guilt of tho other crimes to which ho confessed.
