FATE OF TOLLS
: REPEAL IS YET
I Republican Senators Classed
as Doubtful Show a" Tend
ency to Line Up Against
! MAJORITY WILL BE
SMALL EITHER WAY
London Spectator Declares
Honor of United States Is
Now at Stake Before
WASHINGTON, April 3.-The Pan
ama canal tolls exemption controversy
has reached the simmering stage in the
senate pending consideration of the re
peal bill and proposed compromises by
the committee on interoccanic canals
next week. Leaders on both, sides con
tinned their activities today, howover,
preparing for the final clash of the ab
sorbing legislative battle.
Two salient points were emphasized
in the nndeTcnrrent developments to
day. One "was the concerted effort bo
ing made by Republican senators to
nnite against the president's repeal pol
icy on the ground of political expe
diency, and the other was the rein
forced determination of administration
leaders to yield to no -compromise on
the house bill providing for flat repeal
"of toll exemption for American ships.
Politics Cuts Figure.
Among Republican senators who have
been classified as doubtful, with regard
to their intentions concerning the re
peal, there is a general tendency to line
up against the president. Democratic
senators who are championing the pres
ident's cause, assert they welcome this
movement, confident that it can have
no other effect than to solidify the
Democrats and aid in assuring success
for the administration. These Demo
crats, while admitting that five of their
number cannot be induced to abandon
their opposition to the bill, insist that
there is every reason to believe that all
other majority senators eventually will
support the bill. They eventually are
assured of support for the measure .by
some of the Republican senators, de
spite the effort of the minority to unite
against the president.
Such Republicans as Senators Root,
Lodge, Burton and McCumber are
counted upon as unalterably opposed to
toll exemption for American snips, and
with these votes the administration
leaders retain their confidence that
nothing can prevent ultimate victory
for the repeal bill.

'MOTHER' JONES CASE
1 SUPREME COURT
Attorney for Mine Workers
Files Petition for Writ of
DENVER, April 8J A petition for a
writ o habeas corpus in behalf of
"Mother" Mary Jon ob, held -as a mili
tary prisoner in tho county jail at
"Walsonborg1, Coio., was tendered to tho
state supreme court late today by Hor
ace ,N. . H&wiins, attorney for the
United Mine Workers of America. The
court is asked to take original, jurifidic- j
tion. It will decide at a later date
whether or not to entertain the suit.
During the confinement of "Moth
er' ' Jonos, tho 82-ycaf'old' strike lead
er, in a hospital at Trinidad, applica
tion for a writ of habeas corpus was
made to tho supreme court, but' denied
on February 18, on tho ground that the
lower court first should: pass upon the
case. Subsequently actioa was brought
in tho district court of Las Animas
county. Thoro tho petition also was
denied. A plan to appoal to tho bu
prome court was given up when, on tho
verv day on which the paperB were to
have been filed, "Mother' Jones was
released. She was rearrested at Wal
aenburg in the coal strike district while
on her way back to Trinidad.
Mr. Hawkins in bringing his present
suit contends that tho issnea now are
identical with those upon which the
district court already has. given its de
cision, and that further action in that
court is unnecessary.
ON ANTITRUST BILLS
Chairman Nowlaads Tells of tho 'Salient
Features of Proposed Legis
lation. WASHINGTON, April 3.- While the
Panama toll exemption controversy has
been overshadowing all other legislation
for several days, members of the senate
committee on interstate commerce have
continued at work in preparation of the
antitrust bill which is to be reported in
the near future.
Senator Newlands, chairman of th
committee, said today that the bill, in
so far as its salient features are con
cerned, is practically complete. It em
braces provisions for establishment of
an interstato commissionj a- section to
prohibit interlocking directorates of
competing concerns and ono to prohibit
certain forms of holding companies and
to regulate others.
"There remained to be worked out."
said Senator Newlands, "ebrae supple
mental features, members of the com
mittee differing as to the adequacy of
the Sherman aot as it -stands."
When the senate bill will be re
ported is still problematical.
HIGGINS WILL PLEAD
GUILTY OF MURDER
GALESBTJEG-, HI., April 3. Hob'eTt
Higgins, charged with Killing his wife
so ne could marry his stepdaughter, Ju
lia Flake, has decided to plead guilty,
State's Attorney John M. Wilson an
HigginB has asserted heretofore ho
would oppose the charge, although au
thorities claimed to hold his confession
supposed to have been made the day of
Julia Flake, the 15-year-old step
daughter, may escape prosecution, al
though the state's attorney would not
sav fshe would be exempted.
The Mercer county grand jury which
will consider the murder case will meet
contracc with American registered
steamships and steamship lines using
the Panama canal was introduced today
by Representative Edmonds of Pennsyl
vania. Under the measure tolls on
American ships would be remitted for
a period of ten years, the amount of
such tolls to be payable out of tho
treasury every six months, and the
American ships would bo required to
carry mails without charge to -the gov
ernment. Proof would be required that these
vessels were not railroad controlled.
Would Post Rates.
"All agreements made with other
parties or lines, including railroad
lines," the bill provides, "shall bo ap
proved by the department of commerce,
and all 'freight rates shall be" posted
with, and subject to revision by the
These sMds or lines would not be
prohibited from pro-rating with all
railroads on an equitablo basis, but
would be required to agree that m-national
emergencies they would be hold
at federal disposal to agree to give
preference to goods made and produced
m the United 'States. Tolls would -be
charged against any part of cargoes
not originating in the United States or
originating in South America and con
signed to the United Stales.
LONDON, April 3. Th Spectator,'
commenting upon the status of the Pan
ama canal tolls repeal bill in the Unit
ed States congress, says in an editorial
"The honor of the United States is
now' at stake before the whole world.
Wo do not think we Bhall be charged
with affection if we say that the qu'es?

compared with the question whether the
United States can or cannot bo counted
upon to accept the obvious meanings ot
treaties and scrupulously to observe
"If the mighty Anglo-American, race,
in the United States, which has re
ceived the imprint of Anglo-Saxon
character, allows it to be said that the
United States does not respect treaties,
a. crippling blow will have been struck
at the best of all Anglo-Saxon tradi
tions. The values of international re
lations would be changed and the world
would be different."

mittee, which agreed to begin execu

indorsing tho bill. Dr. Smith Baid that
while thoro was enough coal available

Commissioner Tallman said that in the

however, that despite irregularities tho
