ance of Noted Business Man

Charles R. Crane, of Chicago, vice-president
ot the Crane Company, has been
chosen by President Taft to represent the
United States as Minister to China, suc
ceeding W. W. Rockhill, who was taken
from China to be Ambassador to Russia.
It Is understood that Mr. Crane has an
nounced his willingness to accept, and
that his appointment awaits the exchange

Inaugurated by the present Administra
tion, will be one of the most important
posts in the diplomatic service. Presi
dent Taft has experienced much difficulty
In finding the riht man for the place.

SON MAKES DE SAGAN GLAD

Assured, Along with Fortune.
PARIS. July 15. A son was born to
day to the Princess de Sagan, who was
Miss Anna Gould, of New York.
Prit.A t-fetlA de Saeran and . Mme.
Gould were married July 7. 1908, after
her divorce from Count Bonl de castei

great satisaction, as the birth of a son
not only secures the succession of the
Sagan title, but means a Sagan heir
presumptive to share the fortune of
Princess de Sagan with her three chil
dren by her previous marriage with
Count Boni de Castellane.
The life ot the Prince and Princess
recently has been described by friends
as exceedingly happy.

Only One of Conferees
HOUSE STANDS FOR $1 RATE
May Yield if Southern Sena
HOT CONTEST ASSURED
Senate and House Will Each Hold
Out for Own Rate Only Fear
of Long Session Can Se
cure Victory for Senate.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, July 16. The make-up of the
committee on conference that Is now
handling the tariff bill, endeavoring to
compromise the differences between
the House and Senate bills, is not such
as to inspire confidence in the hearts
of those Senators and Representatives
who favor the Senate duty on rough
lumber, 1.50 per 1000 feet It may be
that that rate will be retained, but
there is only one Republican on the
conference committee who is directly
Interested in the lumber schedule, and
that man Is handicapped because he Is
a big lumberman. . .
Only One Has Direct Interest.
Of the Senate conferees, not one has
any direct interest in the tariff on lum
ber. Aldrich. Rhode Island; Burrows,
Michigan; Penrose, Pennsylvania; Hale,
Maine; and Cullom, Illinois, represent
states that care far more about cheap
lumber than they do about high pro
tection for the American lumberman.
A few yeai-s ago Burrows might have
been somewhat concerned, but now
his Interest Is secondary. On the
House side, Payne, New York; Dalzell,
Pennsylvania; McCall, Massachusetts;
Bowteli, " Illinois; Calderhead, Kansas;
and Fordney, Michigan, are the con
ferees, and Fftrdney is the only enthus
iastic advocate of a high tariff on lum
ber, for he owns fabulous quantities of
timber land and operates a number of
Honse Stands for $1 Rate.
It will be the contention of the House
members that the duty on rough lum
ber must be reduced $1, the rate fixed
by the House in the Payne bill. They
will insist that the House will not
stand for $1.50. and will point to the
fact that It was only by a narrow
margin that the House rejected a free
lumber amendment. When they fur
thermore explain that the majority
against this amendment was only ob
tained by enlisting the support of mem
bers Interested In free hides their ar
gument will be the more convincing.
There is just one ground on which
the Senate may force the House to ac
cept the $1.50 rate, and that Is the de
termined opposition of Southern Sen
ators to a reduction beyond that figure.
If Senators from the big lumber states
of the South threaten to filibuster and
prolong the session In case the confer
ence committee accepts the House rate
on lumber, then the Senate conferees
may be able to persuade the House to

WHITE PLAINS, N. T., July 15. Eve

today and gave damaging testimony
against her husbanu, Harry K. Thaw.
It was the strongest point scored so far
