DEATH RATE SAME,
Mortality Statistics for SU
Weeks Virtually U ne limited
From Lnst Year.
This Is Indicated liy Marked
Decrease in Usual Chil
In spite of the l,r,0 deaths for hlch
I Infantile paralysis hss been blamed the
death rate for the first thirty-four weeks
of this year has been almost precisely
' the same as that of the tame period last
The Increase has been at the rate of
four deaths to each 100.000 of popula
tion. This year so far tho rate from all
causes lias been 11.37 per thousand of'
population; last ear for this period
It was 14.33.
In every age group except that of chil
dren under 5 jearj there has been n
decrease In the death rate. Health om
mlssloncr Kmerson In commenting upon
the situation yesterday said that this
proves that the general sanitary condi
tion of the city Is better this ear than
last, but there are those who believe
that the fact that the death rate remain
practically stationary Is because many
deaths of children are ascribed to In
fantile paralysis, which In normal jears
would be otherwise diagnosed.
The fact that there Is a decrease In
the rate of deaths from dlarrlnr.il dis
eases lends strenath to the belief that i
some deaths which would nunnally be i
charged to these diseases have been
charged this jcar to Infantile paralysis.

One of these Is the forthcoming speech I
of Col. Roosevelt at Lewlston, Me., on

to be appointed by Chairman
Wllleox. which apparently has revived
old fartlor.si illffeierccs. Roth matters
are to hato an Important Influence In
shaping the course of the campaign.
.Mr. Roosevelt's Lewlston speech is to
be his first utterance In the campaign
from the platform. His activity thus far
has been confined to a few lettc-s urging
Progressives to support Mr. Hughes, ami
he has been exceedingly chary of anv-
thlng like an Interview. This Is why his
speech Is being awaited with so much In
terest, ir not trepidation, by some Re
publicans. "Hyphenate" m. i,oe.
Col. Roosevelt Is said to feel that more
punch should be put Into the campaign.
Recently he has been reported a becoming
rather restless over what he Is said to le

some of his faor!te Issues, chief among
t ,em nr. nf ,n,.. n,, ,.r
CMled "by phennte," a term which, by
the way. .Mr. Hughes has not made us

Off Party llehels and Ie

Wasiii.viito.v. Aug. 21. Iteentment
felt by many Democratic Senators at
Senator Stone's attempts to be a little
Csar, admnnlxhlri? and scolding them on
nte. Ten Senators Ignored the nnrlv cnu
cus nnd the steering committee and
, voted with tho Republicans to take up
j the Immlgtiitlon bill,
III the delutn after the vote Senator
Stone attacked the ten Senators severely.
In reply Senator Hnrdwlcx said Senator
, Stone's lectures In the Satiate were no
longer regarded as "terrifying." but are
"becoming Jokes." Ho would not be
bound by the party caucus, he said, for
no caucus should bind n Senator against
his solemn promises to his constituents.
Senator Stone set himself up as the
Democratic part-, snld Senator Smith
(South Carolina), and uny Senator who
disagreed with him was subiect to disci-

that the war revenue bill had stormy
sailing ahead and that the date of ad
journment was far In the future.
The vote to take up the Immigration
bill was 27 to 24. The ten Democratic
Senators who rebelled nnd oted with
seventeen Republic-atiM to take up the
bill were Ashuret. llcckham, Chamber
lain. Culberson. Hntdwlck, Lane, Myers,
Overman, Smith (South Carolina) and
Vnrdaman. Debate on the bill In the
morning session was choked off by a
motion to go Into executive session.
Senator Smith at the conclusion of
the executive session again moved to
proceed to the consideration of the Im
migration bill. Tho Senate Democratic
leaders, who were taken by surprise by
the audacious move of the Insurrectos
earlier In the day, were astounded by
the second proposal.
The effect of the motion made and
, adopted earlier In ths day affected the
I parliamentary situation only to the ex
I tent of the morning hour, but coming
after 2 o'clock Its adoption would have
displaced the war revenue bill for the
entire day. upjet party calculations, rif
fled the steering committee and nullified
the caucus action. The motion has not
et come to a vote. A debate started
which lasted until nearly 6 o'clock.
ItoonilliiK t'l the Inanrrecto.
The Smith motion may not carry to
morrow because the Democratic leaders
were fry active to-night whipping Into
line the Insurrectos.
In the debate to-d.iv Senator Stone
arraigned the Democratic Senators who
li.nl voted to take up the Immigration
bill, asertlng that they had "turned the
lontrol of legislation ocr to the Re
publicans," Senator Penrose told Mr. Stone the
bill could bo disposed of In a very brief
time If he would stop talking nnd con
sent to a vote. Mr. Stone retorted that
there would be no vote.
"Is the Senator fioin Missouri afraid
tho passage of the bill would embarrass
the President In the campaign;" de
manded Mr. Penrose.
",o," teplled Mr. Stone, "If the Sen
ator will possess his soul In penis, he
will learn why I am opposed to voting
t'aueii la Klnii. the Ansvter.
The only explanation Mr. Penrose was
nblo to obtain was that the Democratic
party In the Senate In caucus had de
creed thnt the bit) should go over.
Tho whole trouble appears to be that
seveial Senators believe It Important po
litically that a vote be taken on the Im
migration bill this session, and another
anil larger group, acting on their own
Initiative or under direction nf tho White
House, hold to the view that there should
be no vote on the bill.
The bill could be disposed of In a very
short time If the Democratic leaders
would permit It to be tnkrn up. It Is
'(cly that It could have been disposed
of to-day In less time than It took to air
the Democratic family troubles had the
leaders so willed If It Is passed, though,
the President probably will veto It, as he
dlil last year, and that would mean an
effort to pass It over his objection.
