At the last moment another cere

the girls planted a rose bush, beside
the Oregon building and christened
four huge logs which will be pillars
of the Oregon building's colonnade

Later the girls were the -guests of
the Exposition at a box party and
dance. Special religious services will
be held at one of the city's cathedrals

for Arbitration of Ques

WASHINGTON.' June 6. "Democratic
Senate leaders found themselves con
fronted with a parliamentary situation
today which practically forced them to
accept an amendment to the Panama
tolls exemption repeal, reaffirming the
sovereignty and rights of the United
States over the canal rone.-
It was discovered that Senator Nor
ris. Republican, by parliamentary ma
neuvering, and aided by a ruling of
Vice-President Marshall, which some
Senators say was a tactical error, has
forced to a point of vantage his resolu
tion providing that nothing In the re
peal shall be construed as a surrender
by the United States of Its right to ex
empt coastwise vessels from toll a
Democratic Programme Threatened,
Democratic leaders, after canvassing
the situation, have found that the Nor
rls resolution, now in a strategio posi
tion, where It commands a vote before
the repeal bill itself or other resolu
tions pertaining to it, has enough
votes In Its support to make It a
dangerous Quantity to their pro
gramme. Confronted with such a situation. Re
publican, supporters of the Norrls reso
lution say the Democrats have prepared
to offer a resolution of their own, sub
stantially the same, and that Mr. Norrls
has agroe to accept It. This compro
mise resolution reads:
" " Treaty Rights Not Waived.
"That the passage of this act shall
not be construed or held as a waiver
or relinquishment of any right the
United States may have under the
treaty with Great Britain, ratified No
vember 18. 1901, or otherwise, to ex
empt the vessels of the United States
or its citizens from the payment of tolls
for passage through said canal, or In
any way waiving. Impairing or affect
ing any right of the United States
under said treaty, or otherwise, with
respect to the sovereignty over the
ownership, control and management of
said canal and the regulation of the
conditions or charges or traffic
through the same."
A 'vote on the amendment and th
bill may be reached late on 'Monday
So far as leaders know, only a few
Senators expect to speak on the sub
ject. An effort may be made after the
bill Is disposed of to press a resolution
to arbitrate the Panama tolls exemp
tion question with Great Britain. -

COMMISSION BILL REPORTED
Three Other Measures May
Slumber Several Weeks.
APPEAL FOR "REST" MADE
Brandegee Regards Further Consid
eration Xow as Grave Mistake,
Would jGtv Country Chance
to Recover Its Wits.
WASHINGTON, June 6. Preparations
were made today In the Senate to take
up antitrust legislation as soon as the
Panama tolls exemption repeal bill Is
disposed of next week.
The Interstate commerce committee
voted to report out for the present a
bill creating a Federal trade commis
sion, and the three antitrust bills
passed yesterday by the House were
received by the Senate and sent to
committees for consideration. There
they probably will rest for several
weeks at least.
Chairman Newlands, of the Inter
state commerce committee, said today
he would report the trade commission
bill to the Senate early next week and
attempt to have it made the unfinished
business. If he succeeds the bill will
come up Immediately for discussion.
Several Senators Oppose Action.
Although no record vote was taken
in the commerce committee today, sev
eral Senators are known to have been
opposed to any motion to put any sort
of trust legislation before the Senate
at ' this time. Senator - Brandegee, a
Republican member of the committee,
tonight Issued a statement saying:
"In view of the widespread business
depression and the apprehension which
prevails in commercial and financial
centers I regard- the projection, of the
question concerning the further in
spection and regulation of business by
the Federal Government into the Con
gressional arena at this time as a
Country Needs Time to Kecover.
"I think that a worried and exasper
ated Congress, which has been In con
tinuous' session for more than a year,
should not be forced to enter upon the
discussion of all these intricate and
controverted questions In mid-Summer
on the eve of a natioh-wlde political
"I think the agitation and debate
will not tend to. restore confidence to
the distracted and drooping business of
the country. I think the best service
Congress can render is to pass the ap
propriation bills and adjourn and let
the country have a rest and If possible
recover Its own wits."
Washington High Court Holds Act
as Ground for Offlcal's Recall.
OLTMPIA, Wash- June 6. (Special.)
Vote trading by legislative officials
constitutes malfeasance or misfeasance
in office and while it is doubtful If
such action could be made grounds for
criminal proceedings. It Is sufficient
to Justify recall proceedings, the Su
preme Court decided today.'
The court affirms the Chelan County
Superior Court, which declined to Inter

E. T. Pybus and C. R. Zener, two Wen
