PLAN 10 SAVE SHIP
BILL GOES WRONG
Breach in Democratic
INSURGENTS NOT WON BACK
Stone Bitterly Arraigns Disaf
BAD FAITH IS CHARGED
KcpubHcans Confident Measure Will
Be Shclved--Adminii-tration Sup
porters Hint at Effort to
Invoke Cloture Rule.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 3. Plans of Ad
ministration Democrats to save the
Government ship purchase bill went
wry today in the Senate, but cham
pions of the measure had not
abandoned hope of success in an ef
fort to recommit the bill with definite
Instructions for its amendment.
The revolting; Democrats flatiy re
fused to accept the concessions of the
majority agreed on in the secret caucus
last night, and the majority leaders
discovered early in the day that they
could not muster enough votes for their
programme to defeat the coalition of
Republicans and Insurgent Democrats
seeking to send the bill to committee
without instructions to be pig-connoted
for the session.
Seven Democrat In for Wigging.
Then the party leaders determined
to hold off the vote and agreed in the
meantime to castigate openly the seven
Democrats who overturned the shipping
bill programme last Monday.
Senator Stone, of Missouri, was se
lected for this task, and he delivered
a. -lung speech on the floor of the Sen
ate, bitterly arraigning the "recreant
Democrats who had endeavored to un
horse their party." Ho particularly at
tacked Senator Clarke, of Arkansas,
whom he described a the leader in the
revolt, and Senator Camden, of Ken
tucky, declaring they had entered into
a secret agreement with the Republi
cans. He charged that Senator Clarke
had violated a caucus pledge, a charge
which the Arkansas Senator dented in
a vigorous speech, explaining that he
had warned his colleagues thit he
would not be bound to ' any action
which would deprive him of his right to
vote against the ship purchase bill.
Senator Criticise -'t; unshoe."
Senator Camden also replied, declar
ing he was willing to let his constit
uents pass upon his record, and adding
that a denunciation of secrecy came
""with ill-grace from the Senator from
Missouri, who Is known the world over
as 'gumshoe' Flill.
While Senator Stone was speaking
Senators Kern, Simmons, Fletcher. Mar
tin and others were working like
trojans to prevent a vote from being
taken until some absent Democrats
could return to Washington, or until
assurances of enough progressive-Republican
support could be procured to
Insure temporary victory, even though
victory might not be effective in avert
ing another filibuster from the ltepuo
Insurgents Will Hold Out.
In their estimate of the situation to
right the Democrats were counting on
' Senator Norris to vote for tneir amend
ment to tlio recommitment motion. Sen
ator Kniypn, whose support they had
hoped for. will not be with them, nor
will any of the seven insurgent Demo
crats. Senator La Foiietle Is regarded
as certain, however, to vote with the
Democratic majority. Senator Lewis, of
Illinois, who has been absent because
of Illness, and Senator Smith, of South
Carolina, may nclurn tomorrow.
With these votes the leaders are
hopeful that the bill may be recom
mitted with instructions for its return
within IS hours with amendments to
limit to one year the term for which
the Government under the proposed law
might lease ships to private corpora
tions and to prohibit purchase of ships

Estacada Merchants Increase Outside
Purchases by Theater Tickets.
ESTACADA, Or., Feb. 3. (Special.)
Recently a plan was tried out by the
merchants of Estacada, in order to
stimulate trade from the outlying sec
tions, of giving away a limited num
ber of free family tickets to the local
moving-Picture show, on Saturday af
ternoons. This plan brought so many
farmers and their families into town
that the merchants have arranged to
have the local moving-picture theater,
opened from 12 noon until 4 P. M.,
These merchants are contemplating
an organization among themselves to
handle further trade-stimulating
schemes, as well as the formation of
a co-operative commission business to
handle the entire output of the far
mers, from eggs to garden products.
COTTON DROPS IN BERLIN
Shippers Warned 'ot to Expect Con
tinued High Prices.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 3. Breaking of
cotton prices in Germany from 19 Yz
cents to ItlV- cents a pound is due, ac
cording to a cablegram from Ameri
can Ambassador Gerard at Berlin, to
the arrival of the cotton steamers at
Bremen, opening up of the port of Rot
terdam, slackening of demand from
spinners on account of freer offerings
and sale of captured cotton stocks from
LoSz. Russia, and Antwerp, Belgium.
Cotton mills in Germany are run
ning three-quarters capacity and using
1 50.1)00 bales a month. Commercial At
tache Thompson at Rotterdam reports
"This amount is apparently provided
bv- ships arriving and afloat." he said.
"Cotton prices are declining. Shippers
are cautioned against expecting con
tinuation of present high prices. They
should go slow about chartering ships
at the present inflated charges."
TRAFFIC BILL ISSUE STILL
Council Will Try to Reconcile Vari

The City Council will make another
effort tomorrow at 2:30 o'clock to re
vise Commissioner Brewster's pro
posed new traffic ordinance so that it
will meet w'th the approval of motor
ists and other vehicle owners.
The measure has had a rough voyage
thus far. For more than a year it has
been tossed about without getting to
the point of final passage. Several
times the measure has been altered
only to be found faulty in its new
form. Recently a draft was maae,
which, il was thought, would - satisfy
all interests, but motor-car owners at- t
tacked it bitterly.

President Willing That Anti-Trust
Laws Should He Amended to Give
Scope for Plans to Promote
WASHINGTON. Feb. 3. Co-operation
between business and the Govern
ment in framing laws for the benefit
of all the people was urged by Presi
dent Wilson tonight in an address be
fore several hundred representative
business men, here attending1 the an
nual convention of the Chamber of
Commerce of tn United States. He
declared that "we must all pool our
interests" in order to discover the best
means for handling public problems.
The creation in the United States in
time of peace of the same hind of
united spirit which moves nations dur
ing wars was advocated by the Presi
dent, who remarked that "when peace
is as handsome as war there will be
Self-Sacrifice Ueolared Remedy.
"When men engage in the pursuits
of peace in the same spirit of self-sacrifice
as they engage in wars, wars
The President predicted that while
there is a shortage of food in the
world now the shortage will be much
greater later. He pointed out that
under the guidance of the Department
of Agriculture efforts must be made
by farmers in the United States to
grow more grain, in order that the
world may be fed. - . -
Speaking of the foreign trade of the
United States, the President asked that
business men devise some way of al
lowing exporters in the United States
to combine to secure common selling
agencies, and to give long-time credits
in such a way that these co-operative
devices may be open to the use of all.
Anti-Trust I.an Change Favored.
He declared that apparently the anti
trust laws prohibited such combina
tions now, but he would favor a. change
if a method fair to ail could be found.
He spoke of the work being done
by the bureau of foreign and domestic
commerce in "surveying the world" for
the benefit of all business men. Busi
ness men themselves are to blame if in
telligent laws affecting them are not
framed, the President asserted. He
added that they should come out into
the open and use their knowledge of
conditions to bring about fair laws to
prevent business evils.

LONDON, Feb. 3. The infant claim
ant to the Slingsby baronial estates Is
not a changeling, according to the de
cision of the Trobate Court, rendered
here today. The estate is worth 500,
000 and is situated In Yorkshire. The
case has been pending two-years.
The courtroom was filled with rela
tives and friends of the Sllngsbys.
Judge Oirarn Rival Claimants.
The judge in reviewing the case, cen
sured the manner in which the inquiry
was handled and the depositions taken
in San Francisco and laid emphasis on
his Impression of the utter unreliability
of the witnesses opposing the claims of
the infant Slingsby.
'There Is another matter in this
case." the court declared, "which is
conclusive. I have watched the little
boy in court and I have been much im
pressed with his extraordinary likeness
to Mrs. Slingsby. Moreover, it is diffi
cult to speak of Mr. Slingsby in hts
presence but he has a full, round face

'I felt so strongly on these matters
that I called in a personal friend, a

merely asked him to come into court
and natch. Sir George Immediately
noted the extraordinary resemblance of
the boy to his father.
"The mother was not present that
day," the Judge continued. "Sir George
said he would like to see her, as he had
noted an odd shape of the boy's left ear
which did aot resemble that of his
father. Accordingly Mrs. Slingsby was
brought to my room and introduced to
the artist, who immediately observed
the extraordinary similarity between
the left ear of the dottier and the left
car of the son. Sc far as I know the
child could not havo these peculiarities
unless they were congenital."

Hcgarding the San Francisco deposi

Wednesday's War Moves
WITH comparative quiet prevailing
on the. western front, the fight
ing in the east, which is more strenu
ous and widespread, monopolizes at
tention. While the Russians are on the of
fensive in East Prussia, in Northwest
ern Poland and the passes of the Car
pathians, the Germans continue their
attacks on the Russian lines along the
Bsura and Rawka Rivers. The invaders
reached the Rawka line about the mid
dle of December and since that time
have made at least half a dozen at
tacks In force against the Russian
trenches, each time at undoubted
Nothing daunted, however, they have
been repeating the attacks during the
last week, and while they have made
a slight advance, it has been accom
plished only after further great losses,
according to the reports from Petro
grad. Now it is believed that the Ger
mans are preparing for still another
onslaught, for only by compelling the
Russians to strengthen their lines,
protecting Warsaw, can they hope to
divert the Russian attacks from Kaal
Prussia and Hungary.
Military men hero hold to the belie'
that the Germans are attempting what
seems virtually the impossible in their
efforts to force their way through to
Warsaw. The Rawka and Bzura lined,
which they have been attacking for six
weeks, aro exceedingly strong, for oti
the right banks of the rivers, which
the Russians for the most part hold,
the, ground is considerably higher than
on the left banks, so that the Russian
infantry and artillery have a decided
Should the Germans break through
this barrier, there is another line of
intrenchinents half way between the
B;:ura and Warsaw, with Blonle as the
center, which would have to be forced
before the Polish capital fell.
In the Carpathians the Austrian., and
Germans are offering vigorous resist
ance to the Russians, and a decision
has not been reached in the battle
which has been in progress there for
The assertion in the official report
that there has been fighting to the
southeast of L'zsok Pass, in the interior
of Dukla Pass, and to the southeast of
Beskid Pass, indicates the extent of the
struggle for the possession of these
important strategic points.
The attempt of a, German submarine,
as officially reported, to torpedo the
British hospital ship Asturlas has at
tracted a great deal of attention in
"England, where it Is strongly con
demned. There has been another skirmish be
tween the British and Turkish scouts
east of the Sties canal, near Ismaillo.
The Turks were driven off with some
losses and the British had six men
wounded. The opinion still prevails In
London that the Turks will not attempt
to cross the desert with a large force,
and that the present pin pricks were
arranged only to compel the British to
keep troops in Kgypt Instead of send
ing them to France.
