It also recommends the enactment of a statute defining and limiting the powers of United dtotss judges In proceedings for contempt Although consideration of the demand for Judge Jenkins' impeachment i« expressly waived, the report is considered by Judge Jenkins' partisans in the house a» scarcely less serious than impeachment would be. The report is considered especially damaging because H emanates from two men of Jenkins' own political faith, and men tho honesty of whose motives cannot be impeached. nUQann Batliued. Mr. McGann (111.), who introduced tho resolution which resulted in the Jenkins investigation, says that he is satisfied with lloatner's finding. "It means that judges henceforth will sign no decrees before reading them and (hat they will bo very careful before trespassing upon the rights of the people. " COXEY IN COURT. Arraigned with Browne and Jonn— Special Trial Kefn»d. WASHINOTON, May 4.— Jacob 8. Coxey and his lieutenants. Carl Browne and Christopher Columbus Jones, were star attractions in tha district police court where they were arraigned for violation of the capltol-grounds act on May 2. The courtroom was filled with spectators, populist members of congress constituting a notable part of the assemblage. Attorneys Hymann and Lipscomb appealed for the defendants in the preliminary proceedings and raised the issue of constitutionality of the law under which their clients were arrested. The point was argued at considerable length by Senator Allen, of Nebraska. Congress, he said, had no power to confer upon the vice president and the speaker of the house the right to suspend the enforcement of the act, any more than It had the right to confer the power upon the czar of all the Hus- B l»a. He denounced the coujts for assuming legislative functions. This case, tbe senator declared, would assume a national importance. He quoted magna charta and American revolutionary history and declared that the arrest of the defendant* implied a denial oi the rights of peaceable assemblage and petition. Tfaoa* rights were implied in th* eowrtitoUou a* r*cv4»4 spot in the District of Columbia just as much as in California, Texas or Florida. Judge Miller, after the arguments closed, overruled tho objections of counsel for the defense to the information, the judg-o holding that the capital grounds act was constitutional. He denied Coxey a special trial. The court reassembled at 1:80 o'clock, and after some delay a jury was selected and sworn. Assistant District Attorney Mullowney then addressed the jury, explaining the charges against Coxey, Itrowne and Jones, and the law applicable to the charges.

WASHINGTON, May 4.—Ijy a vot? 87 to 1 the democratic members of tho senate adopted a resolution in caucus on Th- rsdny agreeing to bupport the tariff bill of tho finance committee, iil- cluding tlie compromise amendments that have been agreed upon in thu conference of the last two weeks. These amendments do not material' yall'ect the. income tax provision. The vote in tho caucus was as follows: i Yra»" Gordon, r:inc'OC, Goruiuu, i'i!j, r !i. Gray, U'.iii^iiin. H&tTtS, KilIvLh.

C'ooKroll, Coke, Daniel, Faulkner, Oecrge, fauiicr. Hill Voted Nay. Senator Hill (N. Y.) voted alone in the negative. The six absent senators were: Mills, Murphy, Lindsay, Jrby, Butler and Gibson. It was claimed that they were all accounted for and assurances were given that they would support tho tarifl bill Tho only persons in whose absence there might be any significance are Senators Murphy and Mills, the understanding bein.fi that all others were in accord with any bill supported by the majority of the democratic senators. Gorman Talki of Compromise. In presenting tlie resolution and stating the object of tho caucus Senator Gorman (Md.) made a conciliatory speech. He said it was necessary to make concessions in order to secure the united support of the party, and he further asserted that it would need a democratic majority to pass the bill. Ho said concessions h;ul bucii made on all sides. Senator McPherson (S. J.) spoke in support of the resolution and dwelt at some length upon the concessions which northern and .eoatiyrn democrats had been obliged to make and what they had to give up in order to meet the demands of the south and west. Senator Smith (>T. J.) said, while he was not satisfied with the bill and was unalterably opposed to the income tax, he was ready to support the measure with the amendments which had been agreed upon. Senator Jones (Ark.) spoke at some length, giving some of the details of the amendments. In brief, his remarks were as follows: Ho said that- he had- Been tbo necessity for amending the bill, and after clvlnu thu matier- dua 'consideration hud concluded that It was possible tbat tho blu ta (Irat reported had not Loon BUfflclcntly considerate of tuo Interests of all sections. He had then on fleavorod, li. connection with otbor*, to remedy theso defects us he saw them, and in doing BO hud tried to consult senators representing all shades of opinion. Ho gave tho reasons why Ite majority of the democratic senators representing tho south anil .west wanted thu Income tax, and wily tho minority from the. north and east wore opposed to it, and suid ttiat wlillo out. of defcr- cncu to the majority It had been kept In, tho minority had been grantod tho limitation or the tlmo that tho i:uw should continue lu force, and that whila the period had not been llxocl It would probably bo placed at (!ve yonra. He said alno that many of the in- qulbitoriul foniunut of the bill had been omitted, but that thu amount exempted and iho rate of taxation had not been changed. He also said thut the sugar schedule had been changed so us to provide for an «d val- erom au'.y of 40 per cent, additional duty of ono-clghth of a cent on refined susar. with a penalty of one-tenth of a cent on augur imported from countries paying a bounty on BURar, tho present law, with thu bounty to stand until January 1 next. Ho said that tho ad valorem tax'was not materially different from tho sugar provision in tho ponding bill Ho also stilted that a lur K o number of other amendments had beon made, but did not muntlon thorn in detail nor malto >ny explanation of them except to say that In jo case wero tho ratos of duty flxod as high as lu tho McKUUey law. He said In conclusion that an earnest effort had been mado to harmonize all Intarehts, that many concession* had been made to the eastern and northern democrat* by changes fJcjin ad valorem to specific duties, and that H was hoped that when tho now bill should be presented It would command the solid democratic vote in the senate. Hill Clll)g» to II1« 1'oiltlon. Senator Hill followed Senator Jones. The substance of his remarks are given: Ho declared that so Irreconcilable was hta opposition to tlio Income t»i he should leol liberty to offer any amendment ho saw proper to any paragraph in tho bill BO long the Income tax was a part of It, notwlumandinB the resolution. Ha devoted himself largely to tho Income lax and said thnt whilo ho was pleased to hour ol some of the changes that had been made he regretted thnt the Income provision was ntlll retained. He denounced tho compromise on this account He declared that tho Income tax was not necessary for •evenno purposes and lie dolled anyone to Jhow that it was. Ho Quoted tho part of Secretary Carlisle's recent Interview ad. mining that an Income tax was a war measuro and said tha-l lio had no excuse tot the effort to impo«e It at this time. Ho repeated what he had »»W in his public speech that no democratic national convention hud declared tot an income tax. He also called av tentlon to the f»ct that the demands of the democratic party tot raw material hao been Ignored and said that wool wan required to Bttnd alone out of all the U»t at representing the fruits of toll domnnd. He charged flatly that the income tax had been retained for the purpoie of placating th« loutb and wan, »nd nld tbat because, if for no other undo,.

PrrTSBUBflii, Pa., May 0.— Coal mine operators from Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania met in this city Thursday and decided to take steps to settle tlie strike. After a conference among- themselves they sent for the miners'ollicials. With the latter they talked tho situation over and agreed upon a joint call for an interstate conference to be held in Cleveland May l. r >. The call is as follows: "To tho Operators and Miners of the Bitumj oua Minus of the United Status: A meeting will be hi'ld in Cleveland, 0-, Tuesday, May IS at:: o'clock p. in., to take such action :i» may bu dc'jiued wiso to bring about uu udjustmon o£ th« i'.liroreiHics tliat exist between the op« atoi-s rtod the minors In the various states.

Thu nmjority of operators ;it tho conference favored paying- tho inter-state rates. The scale runs from sixty to sixty-live cents in Illinois and Indiana to seventy-nine cents in Pittsburgh. The miners are opposed to any compromise and will not listen to one. President Mclirido says if they are compelled to accept a compromise thejv will strike apain at the first opportunity. If the miners succeed in having the inter-state agreement adopted it will be their greatest victory, It is the first national strike among the ers in over twenty years. CHICAGO, May 4.—Chicago coal men say that one of the worst coal famines ever known is threatening the commercial interests of this country. Chicago promises to be the center of the famine, but its bliffhtinp; influences will be felt throughout Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Michipan, and the chances are that Iowa and the southwest will suffer. Coal has already advanced in price from SI to $1.2,1 a ton and the advance promises to be doubled inside of a week. Many railway companies are already running short in their supply and so are many of the great manufacturing- concerns. Scarcely a coal dealer in Chicago but is flooded with orders for coal from anxious corporations and not one dealer in ten can fill these orders. Some of the dealers say the supply on hand will lost from ten to fifteen days; others say it will be exhausted in a week Then, they sny, hundreds of mills and factories will have to shut down and tens of thousands of mechanics and work- InR-men of every kind will be thrown out of employment. The steamship companies operating on the lakes are also threatened by the famine, 0, S. Richardson & Co. said there was enough vessel coal on band to last nearly fifteen days. But the source of supply had been cut off by the strike, and unless the miner* re- lumed soon many of the steamihip* would have to lay up. Wavoeu Pariell Onited.

LAID THEM LOW. Winchesters Used with Deadly Effect on Coke Strikers. Riot in Which Men and WomOT Are Shot Down—Fifteen Are Reported Wounded. NOHK SCOTTOALK, 1'a., May 4.—The cok* strike resulted in a. bloody riot at th« Painter works, in which fifteen persons, including a number of women, were shot, some of them fatally. The trouble was started by a mob of women, wives of the striker*, who had determined lo drive out the "blackleg's'' at, work for tlie MeClura Coke company. The women assembled about C o'clock a. in., and with tin pans, clubs, cokeforks and broom* marched to the cokeyard. Sanford White, mine superintendent; Ewing B. Roddy, bookkeeper, and a lot of deputies wure on guard. A shot was fired to scare the women. Shot a Woman. A Hungarian woman fell with A bullet in her thigh. In less than a minute tho men. living in. the houses near by rushed to the scene and White and the deputies opened fire on the crowd, th»t numbered over 100. The affray occurred between blocks of ovens and at the first fire from White and th« deputies three men fell, wounded. On« •was shot through the thigh, out through both legs and the third In tb* neck. It U believed the latter is hurt fatally. Women Carry Off the Wounded. The women carried off the wounded, and the now Infuriated men set upon White and Roddy,, whom they seemed to regard as responsible for the shooting. Before a sufficient number of deputies could be massed at this point Sanford White was completely surrounded. He was brutally beaten over the head, knocked down, kicked and bruised about the body. His recovery is doubtful A burly Hun attacked the latter with a hatchet, falling him to tb« ground, and was about to deal the death-blow when James Tarr ^knocked the Hun down with a club. White was dragg-ed into the engine house to escape the fury of the strikers. Fifteen Shot Down. By this time the deputies rallied and three volleys were lired in quick succession, forcing the mob to retreat over the hill in utter rout. A number of strikers were carried from the battlefield, and it is believed they were killed. Dr. W, U. Cole, the company physician, stated that fifteen striker* went down in the three charges. More Trouble Feared* The affair has caused the most intense excitement here. It is feared the foreigners will revenge the death of their countrymen and that this is but the beginning of riots in all parts of the region. It would not be a surprise to the people here should the strikers resort to the use of dynamite to blowup the works. HE MUST WALK. All Efforti to Secure Trunnportatlon fa* Kolly'* lieu Full. DBS MOISBS. la., May 4.— Jt is the general impression here that Kelly \vill be starved out and forced to march, and that his army will dwindl* to a corporal's guard before the river i* reached. Gov. Jackson again spent the day in endeavoring- to secure cheap rates to the river, but was not »t all confident of success. To carry the men to the Mississippi at full far* would coat about 80,500. an amount far beyond the fondest hopes of the soliciting committees. The DCS Moines * Kansas City Narrow Gauge and th« Keokuk <& Western is the only possible railroad exit for Kelly, and, should pending negotiations fail, a march across the country or disbandment must follow.
