Division In Republican Ranks I est
Than Expected Aldrlch and
Beverldge- Lead Factions
in Warm Debate.
WASHINGTON. May 10. The ability of
the Republican majority of the Senate
to uphold the recommendation of the
committee on finance on the lead sched
ule in the tariff bill, which contains the
Dingley rates In place of the lower du
ties fixed by the House, was fully demon
strated today when, by a vote of 35 to 44.
the Senate declined to reduce by H of
a cent a pound the duty on pig lead, as
recommended by the committee on
finance. In this vote 11 Republicans voted
with the Democrats and two Democrats
with the Republicans. By a viva voce
vote the Senate adopted the rate of 3Vb
cents a pound on pis; lead, as recom
mended by the committee.
Chairman Aldrlch said he regarded the
vote as an indorsement of the action of
the committee and expressed confidence
that all the schedules of the committee
would be upheld.
Aldrlch and Beverldge Tilt.
A tilt between Aldrich and Beverldge
was the opening feature today. The Sen
ator from Indiana spoke of the address
of Carter last Saturday, in which the
Montana Senator referred to the abun
dance of information as to the pending
tariff bill available to Senators, and sent
to the desk an extract from a statement
by Aldrich, beginning:
"I have no knowledge whatever of any
thing that transpired before the ways and
means committee," etc.
Aldrlch said his statements had related
only to the hearings on mineral under
consideration when he spoke, and did not
refer to the hearings as a whole, because
he had read much of the report of those
"I have given 30 years to the con
sideration of these matters." said Al
drich. "and, while I may not have the
ability of the Senator from Indiana,
yet such as I have I have brought to
this question and. if the Senator will
pive a fraction of the time to the con
sideration of these matters that I have
given, he will serve his constituency
and the country better than by pro
claiming to everybody the lack of in
formation." Heyburn Speaks for Lead Miners.
Heyburn discussed the lead schedule
at length, explaining mining methods
and tht; systems of treating lead ore
in order to demonstrate the necessity
for a differential duty on pig lead and
other products of lead ore.
The industries of Idaho, said Mr.
Heyburn, encircle the lead mines, and
disaster to the mines would result in
general business stagnation. He as
serted that without the protection to
pig lead provided by the amendment
of the committee on finance, the lead
ing industry could not continue.
Cummins offered an amendment fix
ing the duty on pig lead at s of a
cent a pound, in addition to the duty
of 1 Vs cent a pound on lead in the lead
Borah's Blast at Smelters.
In the opinion of Borah no form of
legislation would hurt the lead and
smelter trusts. It was idle, he contend
ed, for anyone to say there were no
such trusts. So thoroughly in
trenched were they that they easily
could avoid the provisions of the bill
by transferring their bases of opera
tions. in a brief speech BradUyr of Ken-
tucky favored sustaining the commit
tee in its recommendations regarding
the leRd schedule.
Cummins' amendment reducing the
duty on pig lead from 2h to ITi cents
n pound, and the differential from
f a cent, as recommended by the com
mittee on finance, to of a cent per
pound was lost. 35 to 44.
After the result was annouced Bev
erldge moved to reduce the differential
to i of a cent, making the rate on pig
lend I cents and the differential -cent
Quotes House Against Aldrlch.
Beverldge declared that the reputa
tions of Speaker Cannon and other
Republican members of the House as
protectionists were sufficient to de
fend Senators voting for the amend
ment from the charge of being- indif
ferent to the protective needs of this
industry, as the House had declined
to alllow any differential.
Aldrich in reply declared that, if the
Senate did not intend to turn the in
dustry over to foreigners, a proper pro
tection was necessary to keep it at
Beverldge vehemently replied that
the Senator from Rhode Island would
have to invent "some new argument"
in place of the argument that the in
dustry would be turned over to for
eigners. Beverldge asked whether the
Republicans of the House wanted to
turn over the lead-producing interest
to the foreigners.
"Forty-four of them voted against
the House provision." declared Aldrich.
"That other argument of turning the
industry over to the foreigner," con
tinued Beverldge, "comes like a pho
nographic report of an ancient cam
paign and I ask again whether a Re
publican House attempted to strike
that industry down?"
The yeas and nays being then called
for. Bevertdge's amendment was de
feated, 37 to 4.
The committee proviston fixing the
rate on pig lead and kindred leads at
Z 1-8 cents a pound, a differential of
5-8 of a cent a pound, was then adopted
by a viva voce vote. The Senate then

POWELL AGAIN APPOINTED
All Protests Withdrawn and Con
firmation Seems Assured.
WASHINGTON, May 10. The Presi
dent today sent to the Senate the nomi
nation of Thomas Cader Powell to be
Marshal of the second district of Alaska.
Mr. Powell already has served one term
as. Marshal at Nome, having been ap
pointed from Oregon by President Roose
velt at the instance of ex-Senator
Fulton. Mr. Powell was nominated some
weeks ago, but his name was withdrawn
from the Senate at the request of Sena
tor Bourne, of Oregon. All protests have
been withdrawn, however.
The protests of -Francis J. Heney and
Mr. Bourne, after investigation failed
to show sufficient grounds for dropping
Mr. Powell, and his record as Marshal
helped to secure him the reappointment.
Senator Chamberlain said today that he
would make no objection to the con
firmation and he believed Mr. Bourne
would take i.te position. Mr. Bourne has
not yet returned to Washington, aft his
mother is ill at her home in New Bed
ford and is sinking and not expected to
recover. Mr. Powell's nomination prob
ably will not be acted upon until Mr,
Bourne returns to Washington.

The higher court decides that th xu-th.
quake was not the proximate cause of a
Are which occurred after the enrthnmk
shock, practically holding that an earth-
quaxe cannot cause a fire directly and
that for an earthquake to be the indi

with this sale, that at no time in the history of garment selling have such

Merger Inquiry Brings Ont More Ev

SAN FRANCISCO, May 10. Six wit
nesses were examined today at .the
hearing before Special Examiner S. G.
Williams in connection with a suit in
stituted by the Federal Government to
dissolve the Harnman railroad merger
under the Sherman act.
Those who testified were F. F. Con
nor, ex-general freight agent of the
Pacific Coast Steamship Company; H
G. Toll, a clerk of the Western Pa
cific; R. G. Graham, 'of Oakland, for
merly freight solicitor of the Southern
Pacific; H. W. Adams of Sacramento,

shippers, and Charles Shepard.
C. A. Severance, for the Government,
Oregon Railroad & Navigation Company,
the Southern Pacific and the Union Pa
cific, while declared by their owners to
be competitive, were working harmo
niously by dividing the territory and
making rates according to agreement. He
also brought out the fact that the Union
Pacific and Southern Pacific, supposed
to be competitors from the Atlantic sea
board, split the territory at the Ohio River,
all south business being taken up by the
Southern' Pacific by the New Orleans
route', and all north by the Union Pa
cific, via the Ogden gateway.
Mr. Los3e testified that freight went
forward with less trouble when routed
by the Southern Pacific via the Union
Pacific than when deflected to some
other line in the Middle West.

Company, and was questioned Regarding
