M WITH TARIFF
Mixed Subjects of Debate
JOHNSON AND STEEL RAILS
Williams Begins Filibustering Tac
tics and Clark Quotes Johnson's
Declaration Against the
Wilson Tariff Bill.
WASHINGTON, May 3. The naval ap
propriation bill, which carries nearly a
hundred million dollars for the naval es
tablishment, was taken up by the House
today. Beyond the explanation of the
bill by Fobs of Illinois, chairman of the
l ommlttee on naval affairs, and the run
ning fire of questions which his presenta
tion called forth, little Interest was
shown In the early part of the debate
that ensued. Toward the close of the
lay. however, a lively colloquy occurred
among Bates of Pennsylvania, Williams
of Mississippi, Clark of Missouri and
Payne of New York over certain state
ments made by Bates In relation to the
price of steel rails. The discussion took
on a wide tariff range, a forerunner of
still further tariff discussion as the ses
sion nears Its close. The speakers today,
except Koss, Meyer of Louisiana and
Knowland of California, discussed no fea
ture of the bill, counting themselves free
under the latitude furnished by "general
debate." 4o discuss subjects in which
ihey have s particular interest. It is
aid that general debate will run tomor
row, the bill being taken up by sections
Williams Begins Filibuster.
At the beginning of the session Little
field (Me.) presented a resolution author
izing the committee on expenditures of
the Agricultural Department to send for
persons and papers in the proposed in
vestigation of that department.
Williams (Miss.) reserved the right to
object, and said, while this Investigation
was exceedingly important, it was not
half so Important as providing schools
for tho children of the Indian Territory
contemplated in the statehood bill.
Payne (N. Y.) rose to object, but Will
iams had his say before the Republican
Moor leader could protest.
' don't care about the gentleman's
reasons for objecting; I want to know
whether he objects," said Littleneld.
."And the gentleman does not care if tle.
gentleman cares or not. I object," said
Williams, and the resolution went over.
Struggle to Get Quorum.
Koss then moved that the House re
solve itself Into the committee of the
whole for the consideration of the naval
appropriation bill. Williams called for a
division and then raised the point of no
quorum. The doors were ordered closed
and the Sergeant-at-Arms was ordered to
bring in the absentees. Almost an hour
was consumed before a quorum was re
ported, the final vote on going into the
loniniittee of the whole being: ayes, 218;
Koss said, In explaining the provisions
nf the bill, that It carried $21,000,000 loss
than asked for by the Navy Department,
and very considerably less than was ap
propriated In last year's bill.
' Xo Increase in Personnel.
The Navy Department asks for 3000 ad
ditional men. but the committee, after
exhaustive hearings, decided to provide
for the present quota of 37,500 men, the
prosperous times making it onlicult to
enlist men in the Navy, as tue rewards
for labor are much greater in civil life.
Speaking of the personnel of the Navy,
he said in January last the number was
31,547. Of the 41.000 men seeking enlist
ment last year, U8.000 were rejected.
He said that the department was put
ting forth every effort to increase the ef
ficiency of the Navy and 'Americanizing"
It. Getting rid of the foreign element, as
lie called it, was the particular aim of the
department. As a result of tins effort. 95
per cent of the petty officers are now
citizens of the United States and 90 per
cent of the enlisted men are naturalized
citizens. "Never has tue Navy been in go
splendid condition as now," said Foss,
"and its esprit has never been equalled."
The highest naval opinion of the world,
growing out oC.thc recent naval conflict
between Japan and Russia, was that the
battleship was the real flghting ship.
The chair held a point of "no quorum,"
made by Williams, in order, and there
was a scurrying of pages to committee
itmms and lunchrooms to bring in the ab
sentees. Within a few minutes a quorum
was counted by the chair (Crumpacker of
Cost of Steel Ralls.
Debate on the naval hill had proceeded
listlessly for several hours, when sud
denly an exceedingly interesting colloquy
occurred, during the address of Bates of
Pennsylvania. He had been talking about
tho "dumping" process which the Demo
crats were using as an example of what
the tariff does for the foreign market as
sfrnlnst the home market. He gave as a
reason for selling; steel rails in Canada
nd Mexico cheaper than In the Unrted
States that they were sold under the
Williams ajtked for the authority that
tho Kugllsh sell abroad cheaper than at
Bates replied that the information came
from Mr. Gary, of the United States Steel
"An interested witness." replied Wil
liams. "I challenge the gentleman to give
me another witness."
Tom Johnson and Wilson Bill.
Then the name of Tom Johnson, of
Ohio, was injected into the debate. Clark
asked If the second largest manufacturer
of steel rails in this country, when sit
ting on the floor of the House as a mem
ber, had not said that, with the tariff off,
steel rails could be made at $12 a ton anu
sold l. (16. Bates said he thought that
was cue of the extravagant statements
the gentleman from Ohio loved to in
Payre of New York said Mr. Johnson
vi ted tor the Wilson tariff bill, despite a
larse protective duty on rails at that
Clark replied that Mr. Johnson "voted
xvaiust the Wilson bill and begged me on
the floor of this House to vote against
It, and I wish to Heaven I had." (Laugh
ter apd applause.)
Knowland of California addressed the
House in behalf of a large Navy.
J'KOGRESS OS STATEHOOD BILL
Conference Agrees on County Boun
daries and School Land.
WASHINGTON, May S. Two important
conclusions were reached ia the confer
ences on statehood today. One settles
the scnool-lands question ahu the other
makes the present registration districts
temporary counties for the purpose of
court Jurisdiction, during the formation
of the new state and the erection of per
manent county 'boundaries.
As to the school lands, the Warren
amendment voted on by the Senate. pro
vided that where school lands were found
to be mineral land, lieu selections should

provides In substance that the state may
base its mineral school lands and shall
thus not be deprived of their greater
Efforts were made to get daily sessions
of the conference committee, but objec
tion on the part of the Senate conferees
prevented such an arrangement.
COPYRIGHT BILIi COMPLETED
Committees Will Give Hearings, and
Passage Is Doubtful.
WASHINGTON, May 3. It is under
stood the third and final draft of the bill
to codify the copyright laws of the Uni
ted States is practically completed and
will be submitted to Congress by the
Copyright Commission in about ten days.
Since the conference held some weeks ago
In the Library of Congress a complete
redraft of the proposed laws has been
made. This has been submitted to repre
sentatives of all the interests present and
has met their approval. The bill, how
ever. Is to receive careful attention at the
hands of the Senate and House commit
tees on patents and extended hearings
will be held.
Those interested in the measure are
anxious to get action at the present ses
sion of Congress, but in view of the press
of business and tne desire for thorough
ness on the part of the committee, some
doubt is 4 expressed regarding Immediate
Britain's Policy on Fisheries.
LONDON, May 3. Great Britain's posi
tion regarding the fining of American fish
ing vessels by Newfoundland magistrates
for violation of the colonial Ashing regu
lations is that American vessels must
obey the regulations of the colony which
do not conflict with their rights under
the treaty of 1818. This is the answer, the
Associated Press is Informed, sent to
Washington in reply to the protests of
the American fishermen and Newfound
land has likewise been notified to this
ST. JOHN, N. F., May 3. Premier Bond
introduced Into the Legislature today the
new fisheries regulations, drafted for the

obvious intent of the' bill is to prevent
American vessels from operating with

erally admitted here that, if the New

WILL INVADE NEW FIELDS
RUSSIAN" EXPEDITION TO UN
Probable Agreement With Britain
for Free Hand in China in
Exchange for Thibet.
ST. PETERSBURG, May 3. Later
developments increase the importance
of the Russian expedition to Mongolia
under Colonel Nevltsky, which is to
leave St. Petersburg the middle of May
to survey the hitherto unexplored re
gion between the Manchurian frontier
and Urga. It is now announced that
the expedition will consist of not less
than 80 officers and that its first work
will be to make further surveys for a
railroad from Ivaikhta to Kalgan and
another route from Urga to Klrin by
which the eastern region of Mongolia
will be thoroughly surveyed.
In this connection dispatches from
Pekin regarding the possibility of an
Angrlo-Russian understanding on the
basis of hands off for Great Britain in
Thibet and for Russia in Mongolia
are received with interest. It is under-
ftood here that the Russian expedition
o Thibet, which started the strife for
L'Hassa, was first announced, like this
one. to be for "purely scientific pur
poses." NO FOREIGN LAND - OWNERS
China at Last Shows Cause of Op
position to Consulates.
WASHINGTON, May 3. China is as
serting her dignity and rights as to the
province of Manchuria, wrested from Rus
sian control as the result of war, in a
manner that is not entirely agreeable to
all the powers, and the first manifestation
of this falls upon the United States.
Partly to sustain the Chinese claim to
sovereignty over the province, and also
to secure the "open door" as against eith
er of the parties to the great combat, the
State Department early in the quarrel
took steps to establish consulates at An
tung. Tatnngkow, Mukden and Dalny.
During the progress of the war, and
while the country was in military occu
pancy, it was not possible to actually open
offices at these places. But as soon as
Japan and Russia were willing to with
draw their troops it was, of courBe, as
sumed that there would be no further dif
ficulty in installing the American Con
suls. Now, however, it appears that China
is Interposing obstacles, supposed at first
to be grounded entirely upon a desire to
asesrt herself and .gratify her vanity, but
at last found to have a more substantial
In fact, the Chinese government, de
termined to make a stand against any
extension of foreign land holdings in Chi
nese territory, finds the opportunity to
make the issue in connection with the es
tablishment of foreign consulates in Man
churia. In Shanghai. Tien Tsln. Canton and
elsewhere in Mongolia, there are what are
known as foreign settlements wherein the
consulates are located, and the ground
titles in many cases rest in the hands
of foreign governments or in citizens of
These settlements have always been ob
noxious to the Chinese.
In the case of the Manchurian Consul
ates, while the Chinese government is
willing that these great trade agencies
should be established, they wish to permit
It only on condition that the necessary
lands for the foreign occupation of the
towns shall remain in the ownership of
the Chinese government, and that fereign
ers be permitted to live thereupon only
under 30-year leases.
The Chinese government has already in
augurated this new policy of foreign ex
clusion in the important city of Chinan
Fu by prohibiting, the connection of for
eigners with the electric lighting and trol
ley systems, or in connection with any
of the public utilities, and the same prin
ciple is being applied to the construction
of railroads, so that unless there is an
alignment of the powers as to the Man

No Agreement With Britain.
LONDON. May S. The reference in
the foregoing dispatch from St. Peters
burg to an Anglo-Russian agreement
on the basis of Russian noninterfer
ence in Thibet and British noninterfer
ence in Mongolia is. according to a
statement made at the British Foreign
Office, probably founded on misinfor
mation. Such an agreement, it was
added, is improbable, as Japan cer
tainly would object.
China Hates to Admit Fact.
LONDON. May 4. A dispatch from
Pekin to the Times today says that
the only thing delaying the settlement
of the French claims growing out of
the Nanehang outrage of last Febru
ary is China's reluctance to issue an
imperial edict admitting that the Mag
istrals committed suicide.

HOUNDED BY CRIMINALS
Sensational Disclosures Made in Se-

WASHINGTON, : May 3. The House,
committee on foreign affairs today lis
tened to a statement by Mr. McWade,.
ex-Consul-General at Canton, China, in
reply to the charges made against him
by Third Assistant Secretary of State.
Peirce. Affidavits were presented by
Mr. McWade to show the unreliable
and criminal character of those who
instigated the charges. The hearing
was behind closed doors. At the out
set Mr. McWade was given ten min
utes, but his time was extended to
nearly two hours, and when-,he had
concluded, members of the committee
congratulated him on the showing he
Mr. McWade made charges of a sen
sational nature against Mr. Peirce. It
is considered quite probable that Con
gress may take up the matter at a
later date. The only statement of rec
ord made by, Mr. McWade is a letter
addressed to the committee. : This let
ter was dated April 26. 1906, by Mr.
McWade, and is in part as follows;
Victim of Criminal Plot.
A little over six months ago H. H. D.
Peirce assured me that I waa removed be
cause the President wanted my place, and
for no other reason. I now learn through
tne persistent industry of some anonymous
person the nature of the charges preferred
against me by H. H. D. Peirce, and I sol
emnly declare them to be false in
every particular. I also solemnly de
clare that thev are made by men
who had been charged before me for various
offenses, from murder down .and that these
men formed a criminal conspiracy against
me to have me removed because my contin
uance in office meant their absolute com
pulsory abandonment of their criminal prac
tices within my jurisdiction.
X solemnly declare that not a reputable
man or firm. American or foreign, resident
and doing business within my jurisdiction,
ever uttered a single word of complaint
against me or my administration, a fact
which H. H. IX Peirce could have easily as
certained, although he was only 48 hours
in Canton, and he did not devote two hours
of that entire time to any investigation
Where Pierce Got Charges.
He quotas a certain firm, of which he was
a guest, as complaining against me, and
gives that firm a bill of health for high
business character, etc. A little Investiga
tion would have shown that that firm de
sired my removal because I was largely In
strumental in showing up how It had robbed
the American railway, and I had stopped its
doing so most effectively.
I do not in any way, directly or indirectly,
question the high right and privilege of the
President to remove me from the position, of
Consul-General, to which I was promoted
for "conspicuous excellence." In the name
of justice, L. reiterate the fact that 1 cabled
from Canton on the date of my removal
from office. I demanded a thorough and ex
haustive investigation at the hands of your
honorable committee, when the truth will
be fully established, or as much . so as is
possible after the lapse of'two years of suf
fering and persecution.
