Cummin's Amendment Badly
Beaten, Only 12 Insurgents
Holding Out.
VOTE TODAY IS PROBABLE
Ttegnlars Accept Provision Extend
ing Suspension Period as Meas-
' ure to Gain Votes Refund
of Charges Provided.
"WASHINGTON, May 26. Through
the defeat in the Senate today of sev
eral amendments offered by insurgent
Republicans and Democrats, the way
"was paved for an early vote on the
Administration railroad bill. It Is be
lieved this will come tomorrow and the
Senate then will adjourn until Monday,
when the statehood bill probably will
be made the unfinished business.
The regular Republicans maintained
a firm hold upon the situation in sev
eral votes on important features, not
withstanding the insurgents and Dem
ocrats united their votes on several oc
casions. More was accomplished dur
ing the closing hours of the session
today than in any other week of the
three months the bill has been pending
business.
Voting Brings Results.
Not until 3 o'clock was anything done
beyond listening to discussion of the
measure, but when at that time La
Follette concluded his two-days' speech
In opposition to the bill the voting pro
ceeded rapidly with the following re
sults: The Cummins amendment, requiring
the approval by the Interstate Com
merce Commission of all Increases in
railroad rates before they become ef
fective, was voted down. 29. to 43.
The Martin amendment, requiring
the commission to reach a final de
cision on increases within six months,
was defeated, 18 to 54.
An amendment by Clark of Arkansas
to defer increases in rates until passed
upon by the commission but putting them
into effect after six months pending a
final decision was rejected, 35 to 40.
Rate Suspension Agreed On.
An amendment composed of provisions
by Jones and Painter was accepted. This
provides for the extension for a period of
six months of the 120-day suspension of
new rates and regulations during the
hearing as to their reasonableness, if not
concluded within that time, and for the
refunding of the difference between
rates if the new rate is found to be un
reasonable. This amendment was adopted
unanimously.
An amendment by Hughes striking out
the capitalization provisions of thd bill
was adopted. Burton casting the only
negative vote.
Of all the votes of the day, the one on
the Cummins amendment was by far the
most important. The vote was by no
means so close as had been predicted
by its friends and feared by its opponents.
Three days ago the advocates of the bill
suggested by the Administration had been
apprehensive of the success of the Cum
mins provision, but during that time they
had been extremely active, so that, while
they made important concessions, they
secured, the defeat of the provision. .
Twelve Insurgents Obdurate.
Of the 29 votes favorable to the amend
ment, 12 were cast by insurgent Repub
licans as follows:
Beveridge, Borah, Bourne, Bristow,
Burkett, Clapp, Crawford, Cummins, Dix
on, Dolliver, Gamble and La Follette.
Only four Democrats, Bailey, McEnery,
Smith (Maryland), and Taylor, voted for
the provision.
The pairs on the vote were an
nounced as follows: Root with Talia
ferro, Flint with Culberson, Lorlmer
with Davis, Dillingham with Tillman,
McCumber with Foster, and Richardson
with Ravner. . Bankhead, Bulkelejv
Daniel, .Hugnes, Money, Newlands, Pen
rose and Percy were absent and un
paired. Explanations were made in
behalf of most of the absentees.
The closest vote was 35 to 40 on
the amendment, offered by Clarke of
Arkansas, regulating the extensions of
time allowed for hearing on rate
changes. -
The . presentation of the Martin
amendment requiring the interstate
Commerce Commission to reach Its de
cision on Increased rates within six
months, and the doubt as to the effect
of that provision after the expiration
of that period in case of the failure
of the Commission to comply with this
demand were responsible in large
measure for the fate of that provision.
Compromise Is Reached.
The Jones amendment presented a
similar solution and, with the Cummins
provision disposed of, it was accept
able to all parties to the opponents of
the bill because it was the best they
could get, and to its friends because
it was found necessary to go that far
to get votes enough to defeat the Cum
mins provision.
Pending the vote on the Jones
Paynter amendment there was much
confusion as to the parliamentary
status of the two amendments as sepa
rately presented.
The original suggestion of Jones
merely provided for an extension of the
suspension of the 120-dav period, al
ready allowed by the bill for investiga
tion of new rates by the Interstate
Commerce Commission. It goes into
the bill as a proviso and reads as fol
lows: "That if any such hearing cannot be
concluded within the period of suspen
sion, the Interstate Commeree Commis
sion may in its discretion, end the time
of suspension for a further period not
exceeding six months."
Refund Provided For.
The addition made at the suggestion
of Mr. Paynter provides that "if the in
creased rate is found to he unreason
able the carrier shall refund to the
party paying it the difference between
that and the rate as it existed before
the increase, ' arid, shall do so on the '
presentation of it lie bill of lading re
ceipt or expense bill at the office "where
the freight charges were made."
The Paynter provision also directs
the issuance of waybills and receipts,
showing the points of origin and des
tination of freight, giving the names of
consignor .and consignee, sTnd the total
amount of charges, all to be used as a
basis for settlement.
Notwithstanding that it was evident
from the time an agreement was
reached for the acceptance of the Payn
ter amendment that the point pro
vision would meet with general favor,
a roll call vote was ordered.
Aldrich's name was the first called
and in a loud voice he responded in the
affirmative. Coming immediately after
him was Bacon and he cast his vote
in the negative. All others voted for
the provision, and Bacon then changed
his vote, rendering the verdict unanim
ous. He took occasion to state, how
ever, that he had originally voted "no"
because he did not favor the Jones'
portion of the amendment.
Capital Provisions Omitted.
Presenting his amendment striking
out sections 13, 14, 15 and 17. which are
broadly described as the capitalization
provisions of the bill, Hughes pressed
tor an immediate vote and the amend
ment was accepted without much dis
cussion. Again the rnllcall developed a
unanimous vote, with one exception.
The negative vote was by Burton of
Ohio.
In the course o'f the discussion the
fact developed that practically all the
Senators were opposed to the capitali
zation provisions.
The "insurgent" Republicans based
their opposition on the ground that suf
ficient care was not taken to prevent
the watering of stocks and issuance of
both stocks and bonds in any way that
would be injurious to the general pub
lic. Early Vote Expected. -
They were, however, desirous of leg
islation prohibiting what they believed
to be abuses in railroad capitalization.
Whfle, therefore, they were willing to
have the original provisions eliminated,
they would not consent to allow the bill
to go to a vote without some effort in
the direction of regulation, and Dolli
ver's amendment was offered with this
end in view.
When the Senate meets tomorrow the
Dolliver amendment, the La Foiiette
amendment, providing for the physi
cal valuation of railroad property, and
the Newlands amendment, providing for
the National incorporation of railroads,
will be the only subjects left for con
sideration. ,
If the long speeches can be elimi
nated, there is no reason why a final
vote on the bill should not be reached
before the end of the day, as It is re
garded as certain that all these feat
ures will be rejected.

Albany and Oregon Electric Offi
cials Hold Conference.
ALBANY. Or.. May 26. (Special.)
Although petitions have been circulated
to invoke the referendum on the fran
chise. of the Oregon Electric Company
providing an entrance to the city on
Fifth street, it was said after a confer
ence with John F. Stevens, general
manager, and G. M. McDowell, right-of-way
man of the road, that affairs would
be adjusted satisfactorily soon without
invoking the referendum.
The road has said if this course were
taken it would pass by Albany alto
gether, but those circulating the peti
tions say if it appears that this threat
Is to be carried out the petitions will
not be presented. They say they only
want to force the road oft Fifth street.
Sufe Rifled, Papers Torn Add to
Mystery of Robert Gass's
Strange Predicament.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 26. (Spe
cial.) Robert C. Gass. until recently in
the office of State Engineer Ellery, was
found at 7 o'clock this morning hang
ing by a rope fastened about his arm
pits, from the ceiling of the Sacramento
Builders' Supply Company, for which
he was bookkeeper and cashier.
The safe had been rifled and $50
stolen, in addition to hundreds of the
firm's accounts, blueprints and valuable
papers being torn to bits.
It is generally admitted that robbery
was not the motive for the crime, and
Chief of Police Ahern openly states
that the entire affair looks false to him,
adding that Gass is a faker.
The Chief believes that Gass knows
more about the affair than he admits
when he tells officers that he was work
ing shortly after midnight, getting out
campaign literature for his frienC, H. S.

The spectacle of a young woman de
fending her own case before the bar
of Justice inspired admiration in a
crowded court room here yesterday.
Althotigh she tried and Io-st. Mrs. Mag
gie Krlbs proved herself a brilliant
attorney when she pitted her wits and
knowledge of technical law against
those of Prosecuting Attorney Rob
ert M. Sturdevant in one of the hardest
fought cases tried here for several
months.
The woman also was her own star
witness, although the testimony of El
mer Shirley, her hired man, went a
long way toward winning leniency
from the court. Found g-uilty, Mrs.
Kribs was fined Jl and costs, amount
ing to $20.
It developed that Mrs. Kribbs had
made a deal with John Broyles. the
plaintiff, for a farm, agreeing to take
possession after . she had paid a de
ferred installment. Ignoring her prom
ise she took up her residence on the
land and Broyles- tried to drive her off,
but she could not be dislodged. N. O.
Baldwin, of Pomeroy, testified that he
held the deed in escrow.
