NEWS FROM OUR
Democratic Party Leaders Are
Divided On Appropriation
Washington. The general problem
of Democratic appropriations waa tak
en up In a conference of Democratic
advocates of economy. The action of
the house naval affairs committee,
when the Democrats, after an all-day
conference, failed to reach an agree
ment to cut down the $146,000,000 to
be carried by the naval appropriation
bill, was the principal subject of dis
cussion by the 60 members of the
house who are determined upon econo
my. The party leaders are greatly dis
turbed by the split In the house on
the question of approprlat'ons. The
apprcpriation bills, according to Re
presentative Fitzgerald, of New York,
chairman of the appropriations com
mittee, will place the country's expen
ditures at a point higher than has yet
been reached, and economy advooates
declare that the appropriations of this
congress will be at least $100,000,000
over the billion mark.
The Democrats who are opposed to
the two battleship programme declare
that unless the amount carried by the
naval bill is materially reduced they
will prosecute a filibuster which will
prevent the passage of the bill at this
Weuld Bar Strike by Selling Reads.
The threatened tteup of 6 eastern
railroads by the proposed strike of
firemen was the basis of a resolution
for government ownership of these
railroad properties. Introduced when
the bouse assembled by Representa
Derger's resolution proposed that la
case of a strike and tie up of the rail
way system for more than a week, the.
president of the United States should
be empowered to selie the railways
with all their terminals, belt lines,
lands, coal mines, workshops and oth
er properties on the ground of publlo
emergency, and his light of eminent
domain and to manage and operate
them through the post office depart
ment until congress should create a
department of railways.
Filibuster Sounds Knell ef Ills.
Unless "economy Democrats," led
by Representative Roddenberry, quit
filibustering against what they char
acterize as extravagant appropriation
bills, It appeared almost certain that
no more bills would be passed In the
house at this session.
The filibustered are now preparing
to prevent action on the $180,000,000
pension bill now pending In the house.
The naval bill, which provides for
two new battleships and carries an ap
propriation of $149,000,000, was allow
ed to stand but the publlo buildings
bill was cut until it now carries only
President Vetoes Immigration Bill.
President Taft vetoed the Burnett
Dillingham Immigration bill, stating
In a bpeclal message to the senate that
his reasons for doing so were based
upon protests from various foreign
In bis message President Taft sus
tained the objections to the literacy
test, saying In part:
"I do this reluctantly. The bill con
tains many valuable amendments to
the immigration laws, Insuring greater
certainty of the excluding of undesira
ble Immigrants. But I cannot make
up my mind to sign a bill whose ehlef
provisions violate a principle which
ought, In my opinion, to be upheld."
Joe Cannon Dined.
The heads of the nation, the cabinet
and officials, high and low, met to
toast and wine and dine "Uncle Joe"
Cannon, and wish him "Godspeed baek
