HOUSE OVERRIDES VETO
Democrats Have Bid of 21 Republic­
ans in Vote Measure.
Washington. D. C.—By the narrow
margin of five votes the House passed
the wool tariff revision bill over Pres­
ident Taft's veto. The vote. 174 to 80,
was made possible only by the defec­
tion of 21 republicans, who voted with
the democrats.
The announcement of democratic
success created a wild scene in the
house and amid great confusion the
republican leaders protested that
Speaker Clark must count as voting
ten members who answered ‘pres­
ent'* to their names, a ruling which
would have defeated the democratic
program by overcoming the five vote
margin and making possible the re­
cording of the necessary two-thirds
vote. This the speaker declined to
do.
Less than an hour after the wool
bill had been repassed in the house,
the conferees on the sugar tariff bill
met and disagreed. They decided to
report to both the houses that it had
been found impossible to reach a
compromise between the Underwood
and Ixxige-Bristow bills.
This action is expected to mark the
end of sugar tariff consideration in
the present session and the excise
tax bill, which was framed to make
up revenues that would have been lost
by the reduction of the sugar tariff,
probably will remain in conference
when Congress adjourns.
While democratic and progressive
senate leaders believe the wool bill
cannot be passed in that body over
the President’s veto, they will con­
tinue to demand action on the cotton
tariff measure.
The vote on the wool bill came as a
surprise to the republican leaders of
the house. When they discovered
that defection from their ranks was
to be expected it was too late to pre­
vent it. As a result the following
republicans went over to the demo­
cratic camp and made victory possible
for the majority: Akin. New York;
Anderson. Davis, IJndbergh. Miller.
Steenerson and Stevens. Minnesota;
Anthony, Rees and Young. Kansas;
Cooper and Morse, Wisconsin: Hau­
gen and Woods. Iowa; Helgeson.
North Dakota; Kent. California: 14»f-
ferty, Oregon: I-a Follette and War­
burton. Washington; Norris and Sloan,
Nebraska.
Not in the memory of the oldest
members of the house has a tariff
measure ever been passed over the
president's veto by the lowest branch
of Congress.

DALLAS FAIR BIGGER ONE.
Second Annual Harvest Festival to Be
Held In October.
.
Dallas—The second annual Harvest
Festival and School Fair will be held
here on Thursday, Friday ail Saturday,
October 3. 4 and 5. Thia was decided
upon at a meeting of the Dallas Com­
mercial Club held lu this city recently,
and a committee on preliminary ar­
rangements was apia/inted. Last year
this fair was given during the hop­
picking season, ami this fact Injured
its success. However, it Is believed
this year that this festival will be one
of the best events of the season. It
will be larger and better than lust
year and Will be advertised much more.
It is planned to have a Salem and
Portland day. and to have a special
train run from Portland to accommo­
date the Portland visitors. Upon this
day the Chamber of Commerce of Port
land and the Salem Board of Trade
will be invited to furnish some speak­
ers for exercises to be held. It Is be­
lieved that the Portland Chamber of
Qommerce will be interested In this,
for the members who visited Dallas
during the Winter with the business
men's excursion were favorably im­
pressed with this city
The Commercial Clubs of Independ­
ence and Falls City will be asked to
lend their aid this year to make this
the biggest affair ever held In Polk
county. The County Court has appro­
priated a liberal amount of money for
it. and the Dallas Commercial Club has
authorized an expenditure of $1,000 to
make it a success.
AGATE CARNIVAL IS HELD.
Curry County Has Largest Attendance
on Record.
Port Orford—Port Orford's second
annual agate carnival was closed with
a fine display of fireworks and a re­
production of the famous Indian battle
of Battle Rock on a larger scale than
last year. The largest attendance was
gathered In the history of Curry coun­
ty. Over 30 automobiles came from
Coos and neighboring counties.
Mrs. Robert McKenzie won the lov­
ing cup offered by Frank B. Tlchenor.
of Portland, for the best display of
agates.
Mr. Tichenor suggested the Idea Of
an agate carnival to the Commercial
Club here last year which was adopted
and will be made an annual feature
He has also suggested the building of
an agate palace to include hall of the
same material for Oregon Sons, and
this has been unanimously adopted by
the Commercial Club. It will be built
in time for the next, or third annual
agate carnival.
Port Orford has the best agate
beaches on the Pacific Coast, but owing
to the inaccessibility heretofore th«-
outside world has not known it. This
year the bail game, foot races, horse
races and athletic events created great
enthusiasm and all agree that this was
the biggest and best celebration ever
held in Curry county.
