FOR INSURGENT .
Plan to Snatch Control from
RAY AGEEE ON TARIFF
Compromise Revision Would
Steal Democratic Thunder.
Senator Jones, of Washington, Starts
Plan by Which Two Wines of
Party Ajrreo on Meaanre Reducing:
TarlH, Which, President Talt Would
Be Willing to Stn, Thus Fore
stalling the Democrats.
With a well-formulated move
ment on foot by which the Repub
licans hope to regain control of the
Senate and revise the Payne
Aldrich tariff sufficiently to take it
out of the next campaign as an is
sue, thus robbing the Democrats of
their mightiest thunder, matters are
so shaping themselves in the Senate
as to rob the nominal majority of
its new-found power.
The new plan involves a bridging
of the breach between the regular
and insurgent Republicans and a
general compromise tariff-revision-downward
measure to be used as
the means of an alliance. The
movement started yesterday, Sena
tor Jones, of Washington, standing
DEMOCRATIC SIDE COACEKXED
The plan on the Republican side to get
an agreement among the regular Republi
cans and the insurgents to vote together
for a bill revising some of the leading
scneuuies or the Fayne-AIdrich law In a
way that will give fair reductions. Sena
tor Jones was busy yesterday canvassing
the Senate on this proposiUon. Some or
me Democratic Senators admitted that
me were concernedover-tbiajnove.-nentj.
StoroneaT' '"proposes "that
the Insurgent Republicans shall formulate
a plan of tariff revision, and that the
regular Republicans shall also pvnivo a
plan, and that between the two a com
promise may be had by which the Re
publicans in the Senate may once more
gain control of that body upon the com
mon ground of a revision of the tariff
As Senator Jones' proposition stood ws.
terday there was slight chance of its
matting any great headway. The author
insists that the general revision be tacked
onto the Canadian reciprocity agreement
as an amendment. This meets with the
opposition not only of the regular Repub
1 cins, but of the majority on the Demo
cratic side as well As for the insur
gents, although they favor such a move
the hope Is held out that If they can be
convinced that a compromise of the na
ture suggested Is possible, they will be
v willing to send reciprocity through un-
amenaea ana put through their tariff re
vision measures later, thus keeping the
credit for the reforms and according
President Taft an opportunity to sign a
Republican tariff revision measure.
Will Pass Unnraendetl.
Out of the legislative chaos resulting
from the unexpected union between
Democrats and insurgent Republicans by
which the tariff bills were brought into
the Senate, has come the confident pre
diction that the Canadian reciprocity bill
will pass the Senate without amendment
and go to the President for his signal
tuIt" s concedcd on all hands.
The Senate agreed yesterday to take
a vote on the Root amendment relat
ing to wood pulp and paper, before the
close of the legislative day Monday.
That the amendment will be defeated Is
conceded even by Senator Root.
The Senate will adjourn either on Fri
day or Saturday of next week, over until
Wednesday of the week, following, which
will carry the reassembling of the Sen
ate over until after the Fourth of Jniv
It Is expected that an effort will be
uuiue veiuro mis adjournment over to get
an agreement for a vote on tho Canadian
reciprocity bill. Chairman Penrose said
yesterday that he had no doubt of tho
ability of the friends of the bill to get
an agreement by unanimous consent for
a vote some time between July is and
Tnft Xot "Standpatter.
When the Democrats learned that the
Republicans were trying to get together
for a revision of the tariff, they showed
much concern. They recalled that Presi
dent Taft is generally credited with De
lng far from a standpatter and they
realized that a measure revising the tar
iff In certain Important details might
be framed In the Senate which President
Taft would approve. In that event the
Democratic party In Congress would
suddenly find Itself bereft of an Issue
for tho next campaign.
What the DemocraUc leaders are look
ing forward to is a situation In which
tho President would approve the Cana
dian reciprocity bllL which Democrats
had helped him to pass, and then disap
prove a mU revising- the tariff sched
ules downward, or, better UH, have
the Republican majority In tho Senate
defeat such a bill after it Tiad passed
the House and been sent ta the. Senate,
Then the Democratic leaders would go
to the country and tell the farmers that
the Republican, party was quite willing
to" take ths duties off the articles which
the farmer produced, but to leave them
on the manufactured goods produced by
tho protocted Industries, which th6
farmer Is compelled to buy.
The Idea of revising a few of. the Im
portant schedules of the Psyne-Aldrlch
law appeals to some of the regular Re
publicans, because, ther realize that a
general revision of the tarlfC duties as

they were left by the Payne-Aldrlch law
Is certain to come atiin early date, and.
If these schedules are to bo subjected to
(the pruning hook, tho Republicans nat
urally fall back on tho old assertion that
the tariff "should be revised A7 Its
friends and not by Its enemies." They
reason also that any fair revision which
lowers, duties on a few of the, more im
portant necessities of life would prob
ably meet the popular demand for a re
duction of duties, and remove the tana
question as an Issue from national poll
tics for another decade.

The governor has taken great Interest

'POSSUM IN RIGGS CELLAR
CREATES LIVELY PANIC
Negro Workmen Rush to
of Enormous Rat
Late yesterday afternoon, while Fif
teenth street, "near the Treasury, was
thronged with people', there was every
evidence of excitement noted among the
colored workmen engaged In demolishing
the old Biggs House.
At first It was thought there had been
cave-in or a casualty of some kind.
and some excitable person had turned In
a fire alarm and another telephoned for
assistance to the Emergency Hospital.
However, the alarm for the fire engines
waa countermanded before the engines
turned out. but the ambulance arrived.
Police who were summoned made an In
vestigation and ascertained the cause of
the commotion and excitement.
It appears that about a .score of work
men who were .busily engaged away
down among the brick and .debris of ihe
old building became panic-stricken all
of. a sudden, and precipitately rushed for
Uhe street. The foreman of the Job, a
red-headed man, also said to oa Irish,
demanded to .know what was the mat
ter. The negroes, some of whose eyes
seemed to be popping from their heads,
announced- with unanimity tht a rat
about three feet long and about two feci'

Great Exhibition to Be Seen

Captain of Each War Ship Will Ex
ercise His Ovra Judgment In the
Flrlnsr, and' It Is -Probable a
Trophy Will Be Awarded the Crew
that Scores the Most Points Simi
lar Test by the Army.
For the first time in the history
of the world, and more particularly
since aeroplanes and dirigible bal
loons have been recognized by mil
itary experts as practicable ma
chines of warfare, exhaustive tests
as to their efficacy and adaptability
in actual battle will be tried at the
great naval maneuvers to be held
by the United States navy at Hamp
ton Roads and in and around the
Virginia capes beginning August 1.
Only heavy artillery will be used in the
tests, guns of great penetration and
range. The threo-lnch weapons, which
use a sheU of nearly 150 pounds In w eight,
will be the first used In ttie experiments,
which are looked forward to by naval
officers with more than usual Interest.
"While tests have been made with guns
of small caliber and with rifles in Ger
many and France, no nation has ever
subjected air craft to the fire of three
and six Inch regulation naval rifles.
The aeroplanes with be represented by
mammoth kites of the regular style, in
which dummies will be placed, represent
ing phantom crews. The dirigibles will
bo represented by big gas bags manipu
lated by seamen in small vessels.
Kach war ship crow wjll conduct the
experiments according to direction of
aim and fire the guns according to his
own convictions, as the Ordnance De
partment has signified its Intention to
keep hands off tho demonstrations. The
vessel making the highest record will
probably be rewarded with a trophy.
Interesting results and valuable ex
perience is expected to be gained by
the tests, which will cost the govern
ment considerable money and labor. It
Is probable the actual worth of air
craft as a means of carrying on war
faro will be determined without the
possibility of a doubt. .Naval officers
are widely apart on the subject, some
claiming aeroplanes and dirigibles can
never be used to advantage, while oth
ers claim they are the legitimate rivals
of the war ship.

Atthe time the naval experiments are
being conducted, the "War Department
will carry on the same plan at the test

Brig. Gen. Crozier will be in charge
of tho tests, which will be made with
four and six Inch rifles on balloons and
several types of flying machines.
,Mueh Interest Is attached to the ex

with a new kind of percussion cap, re.
