Wasiiinoton, Aug. 26. Senator Un
derwood, Alabama, former leader of the
Democrats In the House and the author
of the present tariff law, accused the
Democratic party to-day with having
discarded Its ancient faith and taken up
the Republican principles of protection.
The statement caused n sensation among
the Democrats of Congress, who realized
that, coming from the most eminent
Democratic tariff expert, It would be used
against the Administration In the cam

protection," said Mr. Underwood, "and

London, Aug. 26. British troops
struck tho Germans again near Thlepval
last night nnd stormed 400 yards morer
of their trenches, which they held against
every attempt to retake them. So con
cerned aro tho Germans at continued
Ilrltlsh successes In this region that they
attacked threo other points In the Brlt
Ish and two In the French lines to-day
In an effort to slow up the Somme at
tack. The British attack last night was de
livered southeast of the village of Thlep
val, cast and west of the Mouquet farm.
On both sides of the farm the Ilrltlsh
stormed German trenches nlong the road
that runs almost straight east from
Thlepval to Courcelette. Most f the
trenches won were west of the farm, on
the side toward Thlepval.
Counter Attack. Soon.
As soon ns the Worcestershire and
Wiltshire regiments, which made the
successful charge, had disposed of the
last Germans, they hastened to Intrench
themselves and place machlno guns In
ffnrwasrty wunlttw. expecting a counter
attack. It came without delay, and the
attacking troops were of the first di
vision of the Prussian Guard, commanded
by Prince Eitel Frledrlch, the Kaiser's
Just as tho guards were thrown back

losses wcro great.
The Ilrltlsh positions about Thlepval
now make German occupation very dif

Washington. Aug. 26. Senator Un
derwood made a motion In tho Senate
to-day to amend the war revenue bill to
lower tho exemptions under the Income
tax law from $4,000 to JJ.000 for married
men and from IS.000 to $2,000 for un
Tho amendment was lost by a vote of
31 to 19. Tho Finance Committee's Dem
ocratic members, who control that com
mittee, voted at one time by a" majority
of one to lower tho exemptions, but
later reversed their action.
The- Senators who voted for Mr. Un

Germans Twice Driven Of
In the hope of distracting tho atten-'
Hon of tho British from the Somme
front, where Halg's troops have been
gaining steadily lately, the Germans at
tacked the British trenches south of the
Bethune-La Bassee road, thirty miles
to tho north. They attacked twice, but
eacli time tlm British rifle fire drove
them back. Near the Hohenzollern re
doubt they hurled large quantities of
hand grenades Into tho British lines.
The Germans made artillery attacks
upon RocllncTJUrt, north of Arras, and
cast of Kllllbekc, near Ypres.
Tho Uermans made similar attacks
galnt the French trenches In the
hainpagnn region. They dashed up to
tho trenches at Tahure, almost at tho
point of tho salient the French, forced
Into tho German lines by their Cham
pagne offensive In September. They re
mained In tho trench only a short time
cforc tho French drove them out again.
On the Verdun front, south of tho
Meuse, the Germans again attacked the
French lino between Fleury and Thlau-
mont, but mado no progress.
About Maurepas tho Germans made
only desultory attempts to get back
any of tho trenches the French took
from them recently. Iast night at about

O'Gorman Favor Chance.
The trouble started when Senator Un
derwood offered nn amendment to lower
the exemptions of Individual Incomes.
Senator O'Gorman had made a speech
advocating Mr. Underwood's amendment,
In which he said the Income tax feature
of the pending bill was so "hedged about
with restrictions" that It worked an In
justice, and that the result had been
that one-half of 1 per cent, of the rple
nay the tax and that New York paid
more Income tax than all of the South
ern States and the States west of the
Mississippi River combined.
"You are teaching a large element of
the people that they ure entitled to re
ceive the benefits of government with
out bearing any of Its burdens," said
Senator O uorman.
Just as the ote was about to ho taken
on Senator Underwood s amendment Sen
ator Stone, who was described by Sena
tor Vardaman of Mississippi a few days
ago as "the self-constituted censor of the
Democratic side, strode Into the chamber
and Insisted on being heard. He delivered
a lecture on party regularity, charging
Senator Underwood was destroying
"party solidarity" and disregarding the
obligations of the -caucus.
Senator Stone concluded with the
statement that he entered his "solemn

WASHINGTON, Augr. 2G. Railroad presidents of the
United States decided to-night to stand lirm against the
demands of President Wilson and the 400,000 union em
ployees whose eight hour cause he espouses. Through their
committee of eight, which drew up counter proposals, they
maintain their original contention the arbitration of dif
ferences without the granting of a single concession.
The railroad executives determined on this course
despite the President's urging for a trial of an eight hour day.
They fixed their attitude with the full realization that more
drastic means than mere persuasion may be employed against
them by the President.
