Closimg-Ouit Letter in Lobby Inquiry Says Mrs. Bryan Is Making Secretary's Clothes. Attempt to Amend Committee Rates on Automobiles Fails in Senate. 2 COMMITTEES AT WORK PIG IRON FIGURES STAND BRYAN SiPLIC TY Ex-Senator Foraker Mild in His Characterisation of Mulliall, AYhom He Regards as Hav ing Been Overestimated. WASHINGTON, Aug. 5. From the files of the National Association of Manufacturers today came the details of tiie legislative activities of the widest range extending from the home districts of Members of Congress throughout the country to the White House and the Capital. The Senate lobby investigators pur sued their inquiry by an examination of ex-Senator Foraker, of Ohio. The House committee got under way and placed in the record a hundred letters from the files of James A. Emery, chief counsel for the National Association of Manufacturers. From attempts to influence the selec tion of the labor and judiciary com mittees of the House, the discussion of the possibility of coupling currency legislation with the tariff bill at the present session of Congress from con versations with Majority Leader Oscar Underwood of the House, to letters and telegrams to Presidents Wilson and Taft, the correspondence covered every field of public policy and legislative practice. i;niery Admit Hli Part. Frankly and quietly Emery on the Etand indicated that he had recom mended a. contribution of $300 to-op pose Representative Buchanan, of 1111 nois. for re-election, or told of per sonal interviews with leaders and members of Congress in his attempts to influence the naming of committee or to prevent the enactment of legisla tion urged by organized labor. Discussing the recent sundry civil bill, with its provision prohibiting the expenditure of certain funds for the prosecution of farmers and .labor unions under the Sherman law, Emery wrote to President John Kirby, Jr., of the association on March 7, 1913, after President Taft had vetoed the bill I want to emphasize as hard as 1 can the importance of laying up for a tremendous demonstration when this bill reaches President Wilson, as it probably will, with the same provi sion in it. You will then have an early opportunity to demonstrate whether the glittering Democratic motto, 'Equal rights for all and spe cial privileges for none,' means any- thing, or whether the Administration has surrendered completely or will merely turn over the Department of Labor. Protest Declared I'selens. "I note, by the way, your reference to a letter from C. W. Post on the question of a, procest over the appoint . nent of Wileon (Secretary of Labor). A protest on this subject is a -mere waste'. 'of breath, and, on thewhole, I am inclined to think that the whote purpose of this department will"-, be shown up quicker with the union In control of it than in any other way. Gompers will run tt characteristically with a high hand, and if the whole thing does not smell te heaven within a year I shall be very much astonished. By that time Democratic simplicity probably will mean a union label on the White House stationery and the President conferring with the Waiters' l-nion over the appointment of his steward. "At present we have nothing more startling in Jefferson simplicity tnan the news that Mrs. Bryan is making a new suit for the Secretary of State and ginger ale would be served at the dinner for the British ambassador. Toothpicks, of course, will be an after-dinner . course at all Cabinet receptions, and the demand for dress suits will be confined to waiters in the hotels." Foraker Mild In Criticism. Ex-Senator Foraker's testimony be fore the Senate committee, so far as it related to Mulhall, was mild by com parlson with the denunciation of Mul hall indulged in by other witnesses. Foraker amused his hearers by the calm way he talked of Miflhall's desire to appear with prominent men. talk with them and report what he thought' they thought to hi employers. He said he never took Mulhall seriously. Foraker said he had known Mulhall since 18S3, when he (.Foraker) was candidate for Governor of Ohio. He did not know how active Mulhall was In his behalf in that campaign. "I don't remember that I ever asked him to work for me, and I don't know whether I asked him not to," he said. Foraker denied that he ever favored any legislation wanted by the National Association of Manufacturers or that he talked with Mulhall about legislation in Washington. He said he frequently talked to men in the Cabinet, however, in those days about legislation. Before we got so good as we are now," he said. "I thought it was all right to answer questions. Of course, I never had any idea that these conver sations were to be made the basis of reports by some lobbyists."

Leader Blocks Pence AJtter All Demands Are Granted. DULl'TH, Minn., Aug. 5. Although the strikers at the Allouez ore docks had signified a willingness to go to work today, and the company had made all the concessions the strikers had asked, an Industrial Workers of the World leader succeeded in stopping the negotiatians for ending the strike and the strikers finally voted to remain out. The men who had been brought here to act as strikebreakers quit in a body. The dock officials had granted all de mands originally made by the strikers, and also had promised an increase in pay of lo cents a day, which was a later issue brought up by the men. Mayor Konkel, of Superior, attempted to address the strikers, but they re fused to listen to him after he had en gaged in a wordy battle with the In dustrial Workers of the World leaders. City Wins Its Demands. DETROIT, Mich., Aug. 5. The threatened trouble between the city of Detroit and the Detroit United Street itanways company, caused by the re f usal of the company, to charge 3-cent fares on all lines where franchises have expired, was halted today when a temporary agreement was reached by representatives of the traction com pany and city officials. Including flavor .Marx. The street railway company agreed to nearly all of the important demands made by the city. NEW YORK. Aug. E. (Special.) The search for the missing Hanan jewels was taken up In this city today by S. fiemwlck. of -the National Detective Agency of Providence, R. I. A member of a prominent New York family is said to have been in the mysterious automobile seen at Narragansett Pier on the night the jewels dlsapnearea. "Our orders from the person who employed us," said Mr. Semwlck to day. "are to get the Jewels, without regard to person or family, and that is just what we propose to do. A complete list of the missing jewels, which has never been published before was obtained today. Instead of the total value being 1150,000, as at first stated, the gems are now said to be worth a trifle over $60,000. Here is the list: One platinum watch, square shaped studded with diamonds, with the mono gram "E. E. H." One black ribbon bow knot breastpin, outlined with diamonds. One pair earrings to. match breast pin. One -pair large sapphire earrings. surrounded by wreath of diamonds. One sapphire pendant, star shaped, surrounded by diamonds. One large pair pale pink coral ear rings, with large diamond mounted on tOD. one sapphire broocn, surrounded by wreath of diamonds. One coral brooch, shape of rose. One large solitaire ring, half-inch square setting, set in black enamel. One round moonstone, nearly one inch across, surrounded by two rows of diamonds. One rope of pearls, quarter Inch, con taining between 175 and 185 pearjs, with black diamond set in clasp, sur rounded by smaller diamonds. One pearl necklace with Indian seed, red seed, every two and one-half inches between the pearls. One diamond horseshoe pin, quite large. One diamond faced watch, attached to diamond bow knot. One seal ring, with coat of arms, ini tial "H. This list, according to detectives. comprises but a small part of the col lection owned by Mrs. Hanan. Another important development In the Narragansett Pier cases today was the statement of detectives who have been connected with one or the other of the cases, Rumsey robbery, and the disappearance of the Hanan gems bad no connection. It was simply a coincidence, they say, that the two affairs came so close together. They are emphatic in declar ing that the person who robbed the Rumsey and Harriman homes had noth ing to do with the Hanan case. Another development today was rumor that the Rumsey Jewels had been discovered in Denver. screen, and explained by J. B. Strauss, president of the Strauss Bascule Bridge Company, of Chicago. The plans were shown in a local moving-picture house at the noon hour, that the business men could have time to see them. The estimated cost of the bridge proper is between $1, 125, 000 and $1,150. 000, and the total cost, including all embankments, approaches and secon dary bridges, and the real estate neces sary at either end of the structure, is estimated at between $l,o00,000 and 1,600,000. . . ' The design shown today Is known' as the Strauss trunnion bascule draw bridge, which does not limit the size of vessels - passing through the draw span, as is the case in other types of bridges. The plans drawn from the prelimi nary survey made by Ralph Modjeski include 11 spans over the main river, one of which is the bascule span; eight spans over the Oregon slough and three spans over the Columbia siougn; orna mental concrete spans over the pro posed Columbia boulevard and O.-W. R. & N. tracks. The plans call for a 20 foot roadway for streetcars and auto mobiles between the trusses, and two cantilever extensions carrying each an eight or ten-foot driveway for slow moving vehicles, and a four-foot walk on either side. Mr. Etrauss emphasized the fact his company's bridge crossing the Black Rock River Harbor at Buffalo and crossing the Gatun River on the Pan ama Canal has been accepted by the Government of the United States and other bridges by the Canadian and Rus. sian governments. BRIDGE PLANS PICTURED Details of Vancouver Span Are Ex plained on "Movie" Screen. VANCOUVER. Wash., Aug. 5. (Spe cial.) Bridge boosters and those in terested in the proposed Pacific high way bridge across the Columbia River, today had the pleasure and instruction of looking at plans of a standard Etrauss bascule 'bridge thrown on MEAT FALLS SHORT Houston Concerned Over De ficiency in Supply. Saulsbury Assails Protection and Socialism as "Twin Evils and Ill-Omened Birds" and Pre dicts Success for Measure. WASHINGTON, Aug. 5. Senate Dem ocrats succeeded today for the first time in speeding up on the tariff bill, making considerable progress in the metal schedule despite protests of Sen ators Oliver, Smith of Michigan, Cum mins and Smoot against many of the rates. Chief opposition centered in the rates on automobiles, which the committee fixed' at 15 per cent on cars valued at 11000 or less; 30 per cent on cars val ued at more than $1000 and less then $1500; 45 per cent on cars valued at $1500 and over, and 30 per cent on auto mobile parts. Senators Cummins apd Smoot both insisted that the rates on completed cars would be useless, be cause all foreign cars would be brought in at the 30 per cent rate, in parts. Efforts of Senator Oliver also were unavailing to increase the rates on iron products. His argument was that bar iron was more costly of production than the conversion of steel from pig Iron. Before consideratln of the schedule be gan Senator Saulsburj-, of Delaware, discussed the tariff generally, predict ing success for the bill and assailing protection and socialism as "twin evils and ill-omened birds." Senator Brandegee sought to amend the automobile rates by making the rates on chassis eq ial to the rates on finished cars 4a per cent oti chassis or high-priced cars and 30 per cent on chassis cars valued at $1000 or less th;.n $1500 and 15 per cent on chassis of cars valued at less than $1000. The amendment was lost 46 to 21. Senators Brlstow, Crawford, Cummins, Gronna, Sherman and Sterling, of the minority, voted with the Democrats against it. The eommittee rates were then ap. proved. The 25 per cent rate on bicycles and motorcycles also was agreed to. Axles at 10 per cent, blacksmith tools and bolts at 10 per cent and nuts and wash. ers at 5 per cent encountered no ef fective opposition. Other rates ap proved were nut locks, 25 per cent; chains of iron and steel, 20 per cent; sprocket chains, 25 per cent; welded steel tubes, pipes, etc., 20 per cent; sword blades and side arms, 30 per cent. An amendment by Senator Gallinger to substitute the Payne-Aldrich rates for the proposed rates on table knives and such cutlery was voted down, 45 to 17. The committee rates of 25 per cent and 30 per cent prevailed. EXPERTS STUDY PROBLEM Secretary Explains to Protesting Farmers That Inspectors Seek Data on Which. Regulation May Be Based. PLOT LAID IN GERMANY CASTRO PROCLAMATION" SENT OUT FROM DRESDEN. False Start Made for Paris, to Deceive Watchers, WTuile Dictator Remained With Friend. BERLIN, Aug. 5. Cipriano Castro, former dictator of Venezuela, planned his present invasion of tnat country while he was staying in Dresden a few months ago. He lived there for some time quietly with a German friend, Hermann Wolfram. Castro arrived in Dresden on March 26, shortly after reaching Hamburg from the United States. A fortnight afterward he succeeded, by making false start. In convincing inquirers that he had gone to Pari3 and eventually to the Canary Islands. Instead, however, he remained the guest of Wolfram, and while in his house drafted the procla mation to the Venezuelan people, which he issued at Coro on July 27. Castro left Dresden early in July for Vene suela. In a letter today, his friend Wolfram in Dresden writes: "Now that Castro has again estab lished himself in Venezuela, where the overwhelming majority of the people, and above all. the most important part of the army, are on his side, it can scarcely be doubted that he will soon re-enter Caracas in triumph and be come again the leader of the destinies of Venezuela."

Ladies' Suits, Coats and Dresses Sacrificed $20.00 and $25.00 Garments SO "WASHINGTON, Aug. 5. (Special.) As a result of a misunderstanding created by press dispatches announc ing that Drs. A. D. Melvin and Edward C. Joss, of the bureau of animal in dustry, have been dispatched to South American countries and Australia to investigate meat production, the Sec retary of the Department of Agricul ture has received many letters from farmers and others protesting that the Department should encourage domes tic production of meat instead of en couraging foreign shippers to bring their product into competition with tne local product. David F. Houston, Secretary of Agri culture, has replied to these letters that the primary object of sending these inspectors abroad is neither to encourage nor to discourage the export of meat to the United States, but to make certain that the Department of Agriculture understands fully the con ditions under which meat offered far entry into the United States is pro duced, slaughtered, packed and shipped Armed with this information, the De partment can co-operate in keeping out of the United States all meat produced from diseased cattle, all meats slaugh tered in unsanitary establishments or Improperly refrigerated, packed and shipped and all meat products prepared under conditions that would not be permitted in the Federally inspected establishments of the United States. The secondary object of the trip is to look into the general condition of the livestock industry in foreign coun tries, the growth of that Industry, the countries to which they are now ex porting livestock and meat and thi probability of future shipments Into the United States. This foreign inspection of meat is && clared to have become necessary irrc speotive of changes in the tariff on meat for the reason that since 1906 the total domestic production of cattle has been 30 per cent below the actual de mand. The Department is trying to meet this domestic situation by carry ing on extensive campaigns for the eradication of the tick, which more than anything else has prevented the Southern states from supplying the normal yield of meat stock. Similar campaigns are being waged against tu. berculosis, foot and mouth diseases scabies and other plagues which are reducing the cattle output of other sections. It is hoped by the Department that when greater headway has been made against these plagues the deficiency in cattle production will be overcome and an actual increase to meet tne popuia tion secured.
