Both Winnipeg and Toronto Active
Contestants for 1915 Convention,
Revival Week Proposed Meet
ings Overflow to Streets.
LOS ANGELES, July 10. The confes
sional in a modified form for Protestant
churches was favored today by Ir.
Charles SI. Sheldon at a session of the
Christian Endeavor convention here to
day. Dr. Sheldon said that for years
in lila Oougregatlonallst churches at
Topeka. Kan., for two hours every Sun
day afternoon he had invited visits
from members of his congregation.
"A man. for example, comes and tells
mo of his troubles with his wife. He
is out of a job, or he is sick. I try to
advise him. Frequently I can tell him
where to get a Job or where to get
money. Sometimes husbands and wives
aro united.
"This is an old idea. But it is one
which young: pastors often Xorget. The
confessional Is one of three things
which make strong the Roman Catholic
Church. , Jt is only human nature to
tell one's troubles. It may be done In
an informal way and bring good re
suits." Canada Invites Conference.
Canada wants the next international
Christian Endeavor biennial conven
tion, and Winnipeg and Toronto began
active campaigns today. Other cities
actively in the fight are Chicago, St.
Eouia and Niagara Falls. The board
of trustees will decide tomorrow.
At tonight's session Rev. Francis
E. Clark, president of the United
Society, appealed for special effort for
future activities beginning February
2. 1914, which date marks the thirtiy
third birthday . anniversary of the
movement. He suggested the setting
aside of a week of revival to ' mark
the beginning of a new epoch in the
progress of the organization.
Efficiency Is Increasing;.
William Shaw, general secretary of
the society, reviewed the society's
progress since the last general con
vention. He said that the society had
started with a rating of 25 per cent
and climbed to 50 per cent, showing an
immediate gain of 100 per cent
The number of delegates on the
ground, estimated yesterday at 10,000,
was further increased by several hun
fl.ds today on the arrival of special
trains from the North. One of these
brought J. S. McDonald, of Toronto,
one of the leading Christian Endeavor
workers of Canada. Thousands at
tended sunrise "quiet hour" services
and sectional meetings in 23 churches,
in the big assembly tent and in a
theater. . Overflow meetings and re
liglous exercises were held on the
Pastors at a conference -discussed
plans for increasing the efficiency of
the church and the spreading of the
gospel through the agencies of the
home, the school and the press.
Sion-Voter Mercilessly Scored.
Dr. Ira Landrith, of Nashville, in an
address before the general meeting,
classed non-voters with the men who
buy and sell . votes.
'"Christianity," he asserted, "would
quickly solve all civic problems if the
Christian voter would only vote like a
Christian." Dr. Landrith said the an
cient belief that good laws could not
be enforced was a fiction of the enemies
of the civic righteousness that is rap
idly losing its potency, and concluded
with the declaration that the man who
did not vote was as bad as the man
who considered his ballot only an ar
ticle of merchandise.
Senate Acts Quickly on Amendment
of Homestead Law,
ington. July 10. Without one word of
objection, the Senate this afternoon
passed Senator Borah's bill amending
the three-year homestead law by pro
viding that homesteaders Instead of
cultivating 20 acres of land, as is now
required, may make improvements to
value of $1.50 for each acre entered
and thus establish their good faith and
acquire patent.
This bill is intended for relief of

The Senate committee spent practi
cally all of today on wool. William
Whitman, ex-president of the National
Association of wool manufacturers;
Wlnthrop L. Marvin, its secretary and
Thomas O. Marvin, secretary of the
Home Market Club, all of Boston, were
the witnesses.
Club Teaches Protection.
Marvin testified. that the Home
Market Club had a membership of be
tween 800 and 1000; that it raised about
$17,000 last year and that its object was
to teach the doctrine of protection. He
declared, that one of the club's objects
was the education of the youth of the
country in the principles of protec
tion. He testified that the club had sent
out in 25 years more than 100,000,000
pamphlets containing protective argu
ments, but had. never used "insidious
or Illegitimate means" to influence
legislation. He said he received $5500
a year for his services and had spent
much time in Washington during the
pendency of the present tariff bill.
Senator Reed spent several hours
reading into the records letters and
telegrams between Whitman and S. N.
D. North. The letters were written in
1897 when the Dingley tariff bill was
before the Senate finance committee,
and North, then secretary of the wool
association, was acting as clerk to the
majority members. Ho showed close
relations between Whitman and North,
but Whitman insisted there never had
been anything improper about North's
connection with the Senate committee.

From Roads.
NEW YORK. July 10. No step was
taken today by the conductors' and
trainmen's representatives towards ar
bitrating their wage differences with
45 Eastern railroads. The union lead

the Erdman arbitration act, amend
ments to which are now before Con
gress. The scheduled meeting for " next
Saturday of the "committee of one
thousand," comprising the local chair-
men of the organization's individual
lodges, is expected to ratify the strike
vote. but. this does not mean an imme
diate walkout.

order would at least be delayed until
tlje delegates return to their respective
headquarters, and some of them would
require 24 hours o. make the trip.

The Money -
Sale That Is
New Tariff Act Seems to Inter
fere With Reciprocity.,
Importation of Print Paper From
Canada Affected General De.
bate May Begin. Monday if
Republicans Permit.
WASHINGTON. July 10. That the
provision of the Underwood-Simmons
tariff bill levying a duty, of 12 per cent
ad valorem on print paper valued at
more than 2 cents a pound and not
more than 4 cents a pound may repeal
a portion of the 'Canadian reciprocity
act of 1911 is contended in the analysis
of the measure prepared under direc
tion of Senator Smoot, Republican mem
ber of the finance committee. It it does
not-operate to repeal the law, it is con
tended that there will' be two rates in
controversy on "this grade of paper.
Besides the fluty of 12 per cent ad
valorem, the Democratic bill would im
pose a countervailing tax in retaliation
for export license fee or other charge
imposed by a foreign country.
Reciprocity Act Repealed.
"An interesting point to consider,"
the Smoot analysis sets forth, "is the
effect of the enactment -of this para
graph on the portion of the Canadian
reciprocity act which admits to entry
free of duty paper imported from Can
ada valued at not more than 4 cents a
pound. With respect to printing paper
valued at more than 2 and not more
than 4 cents a pound, it is manifest that
there is a complete repugnance between
the two statutes, for by the terms of
one, the act of 1911, it is free of duty,
and by the terms of the tariff bill, it is
subject to a duty - of 12 per cent ad
valorem. Nor can the two statutes be
construed as to stand together. Under
such circumstances the rule of law is
that the statute of later date must pre
vail over the earlier statute, as being
the latest expression of the legislative
will, and that consequently the earlier
statute stands repealed by Implication."
Bill to Be Reported Today.
Republican leaders will a point
of this on the floor of the Senate.
The tariff bill will be reported to the
Senate tomorrow but the majority re
port favoring the measure will not be
presented by Chairman Simmons until
Monday. If Republican leaders do not
press for more time in which to con
sider the measure, general debate will
begin on Monday also. This question
will be decided at a meeting of the full
membership of the finance committee
tomorrow morning.
