ESTABLISHES NEW RECORD.
Wright Flies 80 Minutes and Covers
Washington, July 21. Establishing
n new record for aviation In America,
Orvillo Wright in tho Wright aero-
plano lato yesterday at Fort Meyer
mado a spectacular flight of 1 hour, 20
minutes and 45 seconds' duration.
Tho Iongout previous fllnht was 74
minutes, made by Mr. Wright at Fort
Meyer last fall.
Sovoral thousand persons saw tho
most daring feat of aviation yot ac
complished. Tho machine traveled
about 70 miles, as was estimated by
Wilbur Wright, and at one timo during
tho flight tho height attained was be
tween 2G0 and 270 feet, oxceedine tho
higheBt point ever reached by a heav
ier than air machine on this continent
The, moat wonderful part of the flight
was the execution of threo complete
Mr. Wright mot every requirement
set forth by the crovernmont except
that of carrying one passenger and
making tho five mile straightaway
run. Both of theso requirements prob
ably could havo been met, but it is the
brothers' intention to get thoir ma
chine in perfect condition before at
tempting tho official flights. The
Wrights declare that tho machine is
working much hotter than required, but
that they want to havo several more
trials before tho official teat.
Wilbur Wricht, reply inir to a com
ment that the flight yosterday would
havo covered tlm width of the English
channel, which Hubert Latham unsuc
cessfully attempted to cross Monday,
said it would havo been possible for his
brother t6 cross from France to Eng
and and to return to France again with'
out landing. Ho also remarked that it
would havo been easy to continuo yes
torday'B flight as far as Baltimore.

Heroic measures were used In on
effort to adjust differences botween
tho senate and house and to carry out
President Toft's program for a rcduc
tion of duties on raw materials. AI
tho conferees said tonight that tho
f col intra they entertained for ono an

Thursday, duly 22.
WoBhineton. . July 22. Today was
ono of conferences and concluded with
a consultation at tho White House to
night, participated in . by tho presi
dent, Senator Aidrich and Represent
ative Payno, at which tho chief execu
tivo was assured that harmonious set
tlement of the differences is likely.
Tho senators opposed to the free raw
material program were consulted today
by Mr. Aidrich, and a committee rep
resenting tho samo position on the
bouso sido conferred with Chairman
Payne. In addition, the house con
ferecs mot to havo tho exports of the
senate finance committee explain the
senate changes in tho cotton scheduio.
Wednesdap, July 21.
Washington, July , 21. Hotter pro-
irress was mado today by tne tarni
conferees than on any other day since
tho troublesome disputes were reached.
Many Questions wero settled without
any renewal of hostilities.
Tho entire zinc schedule was adjust
ed. Spelter was mado dutiable at ln
cents per pound, which is a reduction
from tho senate rate oi K cents and
an increaso from the house rate of
cent. All the senate differentials wero
adopted. Zinc in sheets will bo duti
able at 13 cents, and sheets coated or
plated with nickel or other metal at 2
cents. The houso rate at 1 cent for
old and worn-out zinc fit only to be re
manufactured was adopted. Tungsten
ore, which Is used in the manufacture
of fcrro alloys, ono of the chief com
ponent parts in the manufacture of low
steel and steel parts of automobiles.
was made dutiable at 10 por cent ad
valorem instead of 15 per cent, as
fixed by the senate.
Lemons will pay a duty of 16 cents
a pound, tho senate rate. This is an
increase of H cent ovor tho house rate,
and half a cent over tho Dingloy rates.
Tuesday, July 20.
Washington. July 20. Wood pulp,
print paper and lumber, to say nothing
of hides, .iron ore and other so-called
raw material, are receiving the most
serious attention from tho conferees.
The paper and pulp fight bids fair to
bo especially stubborn and probably
Win bo somewhat prolonged.
Much progress has been made on the
cotton schedule, but hosiery and ' a
number of other leading items of cot
ton manufacture are causing the tariff
arbitrators much concern. Tho draw
back provision is practically tho only
important administrative feature that
Although the rates of duty have
been fixed on practically all of the
steel products, there has been a pro
test ogainat the mcreaaed rate on
structural steel punched for use. It
was thought that a compromise on lead
and its products was in riew, but this
schedule also has proved difficult of
adjustment. The duties on zinc in
blocks and pigs, which wero increasod
by tho senate over the houso ratea, ia
another matter which is delaying tho
settlement of the metals schedule.
Monday, July 10
WuBhington, July 19. Today tho
conferees devoted their attention main-
y to the revised corporation tax pro
vision, which was adopted.
An oltort was made today to dispose
of tho wood pulp and print paper ached
ullo. The retaliatory provision con
cerning pulp was rewritten, and it is
now believed that it will prove satis
factory to American mills. Tho print
paper schedule is still in controversy.
uno only controversy expected on
tho cotton scheduio relates to hosiery.
Representative Payne stands firmly for
higher duties and the other house con
ferees are likely to sustain him.
Saturday, July 17,
Washington, July 17. Tho tariff
conferees todny settled tho question of
giving the secretary of the treasury
authority to Isauo 50-year 3 per cent
bonds to cover tho ontire coBt of tho
Panama canal. Tho effect of tho bond
provision is to repeal the limit of tho
bond authorization of tho Spoonor act,
although not interfering with 2 per
cent bonds issued undor that authority
to the amount of $84,031,980. The
estimated cost of tho canal Js $375,

bonds may bo issued ua they nro needed

Special Election Urged.
Washington, July 22. Senator
Jones, in a telogam to Governor Hay,
of Washington, today advised that a
special election be held immediately to
mi tno vacancy caused by tho death of
Representative CuBhman. Though tho
now congressman cannot qet to Wash-
ngton berore tne adjournment of the
special session, there are other matters
demanding attention through the sum-
mor, which cannot' bo cared for by
Humphrey or Poindexter.
There is no doubt that a 1 per cont
tax on the net earnings of corporations
will be accopted.
Practically tho only subject consid
ered during tho forenoon session of tho
conferonco waa tho woolen schedule.
A reduction of 5 per cent waa made in
tho Dingloy rates on women's and

Tho record of the murders ho com
mitted la not complete, but it ifl stated
in a dispatch received today from Zam
boanga that tho bandit probably mado
good his oath, aa tho partial record at
hand shows he took tho lives of nearly
a hundred persons.
From tbo latest reports of the fight,
all but ono of the several women in tho
cave whoro the outlaws mado thoir last

But one of tho women escaped. She
was the -wife of ono of tho Jikiri fol
lowers and accepted tho safe conduct
offered by the Americans before tho
assault on the cave began.

Sixth cavalry, is agreed by all who saw
the fight to have been the horo of the
battle. He was armed with a Win
chester pumpgun with which he did
great execution. His timely rescue of

Japan Tries to Obtain Pticifil

TERMS OFFERED UNACCEPTABLE
China Refuses to Reconsider Matter
and Japan May Abandon All
Effort to Conciliate.
Tokio, July 20. The Kokamin, ono
of tho moat influential of tho Japanese
newspapers, and which is generally re
garded aa tho mouthpiece of Marquis
Katsura, the premier, in matters per
taining" to the government's policy, in
an article today discussed the situation
between Japan and China and strikes a
somewhat alarmist note.
It was expected, says tho article,
that the withdrawal of the proposal to
refere to Tho Hague arbitration tri
bunal the differences between China
and Japan, preceded the adoption of
what was hoped would be a conciliatory
policy by China. But this expectation
has not been realized. China now pro
poses wholly unacceptable terms and
refuses to reply to Japan's request for
reconsideration. The article concludes:
"The Japanese government is exer
cising all possible patience, but is not
carrying Its endurance to tne point oi
sentimentality. Unless China's mooa
changes before the conclusion of the
current month, Japan will be obliged
to assume a different attitude."
