Strong Pressure on Committee Is
Reported to Have Caused
Change of Opinion.
WASHINGTON, April 30, The
House resumed the tariff grind to-day
with the expectation of sitting until
11 o’clock to-night. Majority Leader
Underwood is confident the bill can
b*» passed by Thursday week, and he
is determined to keep the legislative
wheels in motion until the marathon
orators capitulate. Democratic mem
bers are taking only a perfunctory in
terest in the proceedings, and most
of the debate comes from the Repub
lican side of the House.
It was predicted to-day that when
the agricultural schedule is reported
the Ways and Means Committee will
accept an amendment putting cattle
on the free list. Meat already has
been made free and there has been a
strong agitation for free cattle.
The committee has heretofore fav
ored a duty on cattle by the narrow
margin of one vote, and it was re
ported several of the committeemen
had expressed a change of heart.

NEGRO PUGILIST ON
TRIAL AS A SLAVER
This ‘Cop’’ is Friend
Of the Children.
‘ There la a policeman in Atlanta,”
said a business man on the car this
morning, "who certainly has made a hit
with children living on his beat. He
carries a big jackknife that he's al
ways ready to lend to any boy; has m
key to tighten roller skates and arbi
trates cnildish disputes in the neigh
borhood. The children obey him to the
very letter. He never has any trouble
with them, and their mothers have just
about turned the matter of training over
to this good natured officer.
"Not long ago this policeman fell ill
and there was consternation among the
children on his beat. The second day
he was missing from his old haunts a
delegation of boys and girls, each with
a small bouquet, called at the sick of
ficer's home with a message of hope
that he would .soon be well. And he
told me yesterday that Ills recovery
from that time was rapid. J think it
w'ould break his heart if he should be
transferred to some other beat. He’s
married and had iwo children, but both
of them died, and I suppose that is why
he is so fond of the youngsters on his
beat. He calls them all "his kids," and
they look up to him as they would a

wanted it finished within the week he
had promised Pat another man to help
him It was getting on to 11 o’clock,
and Towser, the foreman’s bulldog, was
looking over the edge of the pit, when
Pat said to himself, ‘I’ll have a smoke.’
“He had filled his pipe and was about
to light it. when he glanced up and be
held Towser’s handsome features.
"Slowly removing his pipe from his
mouth, he said:
