Wnahlngten, Moy 4. Tht senote

It la given to III tit to decide whothor
any nation is discriminating against
tho product of tho United Stales In Its

by law, to make agreements with other
nations nn to trade and tarllf conces

proclamation of tho president, without
the necessity of anything In Iho way
of legislation or treaty agreement.
Tho bill authorizes tho president to
employ at hla discretion any xirons to

the discharge of the no duties, which
would mean that he can opiKjirit com
missioners representing thu United
States to go abroad and mako agree

At tho amo time, attention la paid

schedule being under discussion. Brlt-
tow mado a strong light against In

house, on the ground that such Increas
es would unnecessarily Increase tho
cost of paint, which tho farmers used
Cummins addrosscd tho sorate In
favor of tho lower duties, especially In
Uio Iron and steal schedules. Ho de
clared that tho peopta would take mat
ter! Into their own hands If tho law
did not check monopolies.
Hrlstow renewed his attack on tho
hiid schedule and Hoverldgo protested
against brute when n vote was called
for. Hrlstow then remarked:
"For tho third tlmo a vote has been
called for on this paragraph while I

tion of tho chair. I am a now member
here, and perhaps it is considered that
I have no right to bo heard, but I am

Tuesday, May 4.
Washington, May 4. At tho session
of tho senato today, Dolllver, of Iowa,
attacked the methods under which pro
tective tariff bills aro formed, and had
a lively tilt with Aldrlch. Democratic
senators remained silent. At timet
tho Republican debate threatened to
becomo acrimonious, but tho Iowa sen
ator was ovory ready with a humorous
repiy which called forth laughter whon
angry words seemed unavoidable
Horah concluded his speech on tho
incomo tax, delivering an oxtended le

Washington, May 3. An extended
defense of tho duty on lumber provided
in tho Dingloy bill was met in tho sen
ate today by Piles, of Washington. He
was followod by Horah, who discussed
tho Incomo tax, not only declaring that
it was just, but, in view of tho divided
opinion In tho Supreme court of tho
United States, insisted that it was the
duty of congross again to submit the
question of tho constitutionality of the
tax to tho court.

Next Session of Peace Conference
Will Hear Interesting Report.
Chicago, May 3. Amazing statistics
will bo presented to the Nstional Peace
society, which convenes hero today, by
Benjamin F. Trueblood, secretary of
tho American Peace society. In a re
port compiled for dlstirbutlon among
the delegates it is asserted that 15,-
000,000 persons have sacrificed them
selves in wars since the beginning of
"This vast number of victims," says
Mr. Trueblood, "Is about equal to all
the peoplo who Inhabited the globe for
tho last COO years, allowing three gen
erationa to the century and 660,000,000
estimated population of tho world at
the opening of the Nineteenth century
as the averagp population per genera
tion. "The usual estimate of tho number
of men lost In tho wars in the Nine
teenth century, including those who
died of wounds and diseases, places it
at 14,000,000. Of this number the
Napoleonic campaigns are responsible
for about six million.
"Losses In tbo American Civil war
have been variously estimated at from
800,000 to 1,000,000 men. The brief
war between Prussia, Austria and Italy
in 1866 entailed a loss of 46,000 men."

Commodities Clause Upheld, btit
RAILROADS MAY CONTROL STOCK
May Not Haul Qoods They Produce
Directly, but May Control the
Washington, May 4. It has been
many a day since a decision of the
United States Supremo court has been
received with as much Interest as waa
manifested yesterday Intho reversal of
the Circuit court's "commodities
clause" decision, affecting the anthra
cite coal carrying railroads. These
cases had been decided by the Circuit
court favorably to the railroads, in
that the clause of tho Hepburn rata
law which prohibits Interstate rail
roads from carrying commodities man
ufactured, mined or produced directly
or indirectly by the road was declared
unconstitutional. The general impres
sion had been thst the decision would
be affirmed by the Supremo court-
When, therefore, there waa a reversal
instead of an affirmation tho interest
was much magnified. When again it
was found that the reversal was based
on technical grounds, and that the
effect was really favorable to tho rail
road companies, sentiment took another
The decision waa announced by Jus-
tico White, who declined to give out
more than a summary, showing the net
result of the court's finding. Because
of the court's delsy in announcing its
conclusion it was generally supposed
that the court would bo found to be
much divided. Only one dissenting
opinion was announced Justice Har
lan s statement that bo did not follow
the conclusion on the point that tho
law did not prohibit the railroad own
ership of stock In commodities-produc
Analyzed, Justice White's decision
is that congress did not transcend Its
constitutional authority in enacting the
commodities provision, but It was held
that the government's construction of
the provision bad been entirely too
comprehensive. As construed by the
court, the -sole object of the clause ia
to prevent carriers being associated in
Interest with the commodities trans
ported at the time of transportation.
Summed up, the act only compels com
panies to disassociate themselves from
the products they carry and the gov
ernment contention that tbo law applies
to the ownership of stock and prohibits)
tho transportation of commodities sim
ply because they have been produced
by a railroad company Is untenable.
The effect of the decision Is favor
able to the railroads and the govern
ment lost on practically all points ex
cept in the sustaining of the principle
The decision sustained the provision
of the law exempting timber from tho
operations of the commodities clause.
This exemption was used as a basis of
attack by the railroads.
WELCHERS CANNOT DODGE.
Insurance Companies Liable for Lota
in San Francisco Fire.
San Francisco, May 4. In an opin
ion handed down by the United States
Circuit Court of Appeals today, the
effort of certain Insurance companios
to bring losses sustained by fires dur
ing the conflagration of 1906 under tho
earthquake clauses of tho policies, be
cause tho shock broke water mains
and thus prevented tho extinguishing
of tho fires, was rejected and charac
terized as being as trivial as it would
have been to seek the same action on
appeal because the men and horses ot
the fire department had been injured
by the earthquake The companies in
volved were the Commercial Union
Assurance company, the Alliance In
surance company and the Norwich
Union Flro Insurance company and
the Pacific Union club waa the policy
holder In each case.
Exodus of Sultan's Harem.
Constantinople, May 4. Since the
deposition of Abdul Hamld there has
been an exodus .daily of the women of
the imperial harem from the Yildix
Kiosk. Forty-five carriages, each con
taining two or three women, left the
city yesterday and 16 more were seen
proceeding to Stamboul today. It is
evident that the total number of fair
prisoners In the palaco must have been
prodigious. Palaces have been set
apart for their accommodation, but in
the present condition of the country
their fate is pathetic.
