Windy Weather Seems to Effect
but little the Excellent
Testerday saw the completion of the
annual shoot ot the District National
Guard. Though a strong breeze swept
across the range, necessitating a con
stant use ot the wind gauge, a good
showing was made In all matches. Corp.
3. R. Fehr, of Company K. First In
fantry. showed unusual skill and ver
satility as a marksman by wlnnlnr three
Important and very difficult matches
the Smiley Individual skirmish, the Even
ing Star trophy, and the Brett revolver
Sergt. X D. Sehriver. of the same com
pany, won the Neumeyer match, an
event at 200 and 1000 yards, open only
to those who have the rank of "distin
guished marksmen." and Sergt. A. J.
Schmidt, also of Company K. carried off
the Harris & Co. trophy. Maj. G. I
Tatt. chief range officer, expressed the
opinion that the team "of Company K.
First Infantry. 'did better work than any
other organization on the field.
The event of most Interest to specta
tors was the Smiley Individual skirmish
match. In which the contestants advanced
at double time, firing at Intervals. The
target, which. represented a man lying
prone, bobbed up for a few seconds at
each fire and disappeared again. At the,
200-yard line five shots were flred In
twenty seconds, reproducing the condi
tions of a rapid fire volley in the field
Richardson Wins Troiiby.
The brigade team skirmish match was
conducted In the same way. and was open
to teams from each battalion and regi
ment of the District National Guard.
Richardson, of the Second Infantry, won
the trophy with a score of 7a.
The Gerstenberg trophy match was a
squadded competition at 1.000 yards, open
to officers and enlisted men of the guard.
Shooting at this distance, over half a
mile. Is a sport of great nicety. The
wind must be carefully allowed for, and
the result is watched through telescopes.
Private C E. Groome. Company B, Sec
ond Infantry, won the match with a
score of 47.
Besides the Erett revolver match at
I yards, won ty Corp. Fehr, there was
a novice revolver match. In which L. M.
Sheers carried oft the first honors. Sergt.
J. C. Frazier, colored, who won second,
distinguished himself by making ten
bull's-eyes In succession at 60 yards.

BOLT OF CAOCDS
ON NAVAL POLICY
Continued from Pane One.
session of Congress be. and the same is
Judging from telegrams and letters re
ceived In Washington, the country Is
stirred up over the Democratic policy in
opposition to naval extension. The atti
tude of Representative John J. Fitzgerald
of Brooklyn, one of the House leaders,
hss apparently excited resentment In
New York. For example. RepresentaUve
Sulzer yesterday received a telegram
from J. Sergeant Cram, or Tammany au.
reading as follows:
"Hearty coneratulatlons. Keep on until
you win. More than SO per cent of the
cost of battleships Is paid to American
labor. Hence those voting against the
nvy not only repudiate the Monroe doc
trine and the Democratic platform, but
are not friends of American labor."
Clark's Stand Csniri Comment.
Speaker Clark's vote against the hat-
tleshlp resolution In the recent caucus
Is still the subject of comment among
Democrats. The Speaker has been crit
icised by the battleship advocates, espe
cially as the presiding omcer arrayea
himself against Majority Leader Under
wood on this proposition. Friends of
the Speaker deny that he has changed
front on the navy as has been charged.
It was pointed out yesterday that In
a New Tork publication that supported
the Speaker for the Democratic Presi
dential nomination, that Mr. Clark. In
an authorized statement, came out In
favor of an amendment to the pending
naval bill providing for one battleship.
It has been assumed that the vote of
the Speaker on Wednesday meant that
he was opposed to any additions to the
fleet at this time.
Friends of tho Speaker declare that
his position In a measure has been mis
represented. They say that Mr. Clark
favors and will vote for one battleship.
They declare further that the resolution
offered Wednesday proposed to authorize
two battleships; that no alternative was
presented, and that accordingly Mr.
Clark felt It to be his duty to vote
against the measure.
Try Discount neports.
At the coming caucus. It was said, op
portunity will be given to vote for two
battleships and the alternative. The
Speaker says that he will support a
resolution providing for one battleship.
An effort was made ycsieraay to dis
count reports about bad feeling Deiween
Sneaker Clark and Leader Underwood.
Practically every Democratic member of
the House Is aware that since tno uaiu
more convention there has been a feeling
of restraint whenever Messrs. Clark and
Underwocd happen to meet. I'nvateiy,
friends of Mr. Clark speak out In bitter
terms as they recall that Mr. Underwood
released his delegates at Baltimore when
Woodrow Wilson had attained a ma
Jorlty of the delegates, but that he had
failed to do so on the tenth ballot, when
Mr. Clark's vote was in the majority.
Clark and Underwood are loj-al Demo
crats, a prominent leader pointed out
jesterday Whatever the feelings of one
or the other. It la tneir duty to main
tain an appearance of harmony at a
time when party success is promising.
As the battleship advocates among the
Democrats are determined to press the
fight the prospects for the incorporation
In the naval bill of an authorization for
one, and possibly two battleships,
brighten. The willingness of the leaders
to give assurance that a public building
bill will be passed at tne December ses
sion wll doubtless bring many recalci
trants into line.
Citizens of Chevy Chase find them
selves In the same quandary as Park
View citizens regarding lack of school
facilities. In order to reach some solu
tion as to where the children of the
suburb are to receive Instruction this
term, a meeting was held In the Chevy
Chase Library last night.
Two of the suggestions discussed were
the erection of a temporary school build
ing, or to hire a wagon and drive the
children to Bethesda, Md., to classes.

Next Tear's Bill, Which Is Vow
Beady for Presentation,
"PORK" P0B BOTH SESSIONS
Br JOSEPH P. AX XIX.
The docility with which the House
Democrats allowed their "economizers" to
keep from them the annual "pork barrer
public building bill was explained yester
day. The members who expected public;
buildings this year will be royally com
pensated for their sacrlfico as soon as
the next session of Congress convenes In
December. At that time on omnibus bill,
which already has been drawn up, sub
ject to additions, will be presented and
rushed through. It will be the heaviest
pork barrel which a majority hjii fed
from for years, containing the public
buildings appropriations for two years
rolled Into one bill. The members are
not to sacrifice their personal and polit
ical interests In their districts in the
Interest of public economy: they merely
are to wait unUl the coming election is
past, that the House Democrats may
have the credit for reducing public ex
This Is tho programme and these are
the expectations of the members who
have fought the battleship programme
on tne grounds of economy. Just how
far this programme will be carried out
next session Is. of course, problematical.
Leaders Mar Balk,
Whether the leaders of the House next
session will stand for such a programme
or whether whoever Is In the White
House will permit the accumulative raid
en the Treasury, Is a matter of grave
doubt. But the bill is tentatively pre
pared and waiting to be presented and
rushed through at the earliest possible
moment next session. Its size Is estimated
variously at from J30.CO0.000 to 110.-
Both aides are watching the battleship
fight closely, and the Democrats with
some anxiety, due to the .fact that
Speaker Clark and Majority Leader
Underwood are on opposite sides of the
controversy. Mr. Underwocd. It Is un
derstood, overrode his own convictions
on the battleship programme in order
to uphold the platform pledge. Mr.
Clark was generally expected to follow
the same course as Mr. Underwood, but
he voted In the caucus against any ad
diUon to the battleship fleet at this ses
sion. Some coolness between the S Mak
er and the floor leader since the Dem
ocratic convention has been marked, but
It was not expected to make Itself gen
erally felt In the closing days of tho
ssslon. The fact that the two leaders
take opposite sld.s in this question, how
ever, cannot be taken as conclusive
rroof that they are entirely out of sym
pathy or that they will continue to work
Compromise Turned Down.
The two factions of the House contin
ued yesterday tightening the lines over
the battleship question. In a final at
tempt to prevent an open split In the
party, or the bolting of a large number
from the caucus pledge, the anti-battle-
ship leaders offered to accede to the
Senate additions In submarines and tor
pedo boats. It the no-battleshlp plan be
allowed to gu through. This basis of
'ompromlse found no friends among
those Democrats who desire at least one
battleship this session. The Baltimore
platform and the supposed desire of Can
didate Wilson regarding battleship con
traction again were advanced in at
tack on the caucus action. In reply to
tho platform argument, some members
Interpreted the plank dealing with the

to a well balanced navy, rather than to

Representative Rodenberg Attacks
Wilson and Bonis Has, Tilt
SUPPLY BUI HAS BEEK DITCHED
Yesterday was a day of political de
bates In the House of Representatives.
A supply bill was under consideration,
but few members paid any attention to
It. Representative Rodenberg of Illinois,
a regular Republican, started the ball
rolling with a bitter attack on the public
utterances of Gov. vVoodrow Wilson.
Representative Humphrey of Washing
ton, regular, .assailed Representative
Norrls of Nebraska, Insurgent. In
speech that teemed with sensational ut
terances. "Uncle Joe Cannon took a
shot at Gov. Wilson, demanding that the
Democrats Inform him whether In this
campaign Mr. Wllscn was to be appraised
by views expressed before he entered
politics, or the views he bad uttered
Woodrow Wilson was In the minds of
members most of the day. A great up
roar was raised on the Republican side
when RepresentaUve. Fitzgerald, of New
York, a Democrat, asked consent to print
In the Record a speech on the science
of government delivered by Gov. Wilson
In New York last May. Republican
Lader Mann was Inclined to object. He
recalled that last week, when Repre-s-ntaUve
Hill of Connecticut, a Repub
lican, asked permission to print a "free
trade" speech of Mr. Wilson's, objection
was made by Democrats.
"I have no objection to the publica
tion of the Wilson speech presented by
Mr. Fitzgerald," remarked Mr. Htll. "I
think the more Wilson speeches there
are printed the better It will b for the
So the Wilson speech delivered in New
Vork went Into the Record.
The verbal bout between Messrs. Nor
rls and Humphrey stirred up a good deal
of excitement. It was provoked by the
speech of Mr. Norrls, delivered early in
the week. In which the charge was made
that the Taft nomination at Chicago was
tainted with fraud. Mr. Norrls charged
that the Taft forces "stole" the fourteen
delegates from the State of Washing
ton. Mr. Norrls said he had reached
the conclusion after submitting the evi
dence to "a high and lnfiuenUal lead
er." He refused to reveal the idenUty
of the leader. The Inference was that
Theodore Roosevelt was the leader Mr.
Norrls had consulted.
Refers to Reforms.
"Is it any excuse that this 'high and
Influential Republican' should withhold
his name because he Is running for of
fice?" asked Representative Humphrey.
"Is It any Justification for a man to sup
port another for office when he knows
that that man has stolen his nomination,
because he himself is a candidate? Is a
man Justified In refusing to expose po
litical thefts because he himself Is a can
didate of the party that practiced such
corrupt snd dishonest methods?
"I regret to say this seems to be the
approved method of a large class of pro
fessional reformers who are seeking by
the volume of their vocabulary to make
the public believe that with them rests
thfi solution of the republic
"It seems that there are many esti
mable gentlemen that are In such a
dazed, hysterical condition that they
have lost all senae of proportion. I hope
this period of suspicion, hvsterla. and
unfriendly denunciation will pass away,
and that we will have less of the cant
and hypocr'sy of self-appointed guardians
of the people In their self-righteousness
so loudly and fervently thanking God
that they are not as other men are."
Representative Norris was angry, and
immediately charged Representative
Humphrey with resorting to d seourte-
ous, disreputable metnods Minority
Leader Mann protested, and asked that
the language quoted be stricken from
Representative Heflin said that some
corporate .nterests are supporting Roose
velt and others supporting Taft.
"The bull moose wants to come back
and serve the power he served so well
when he was in the White House be
fore." declared Mr Heflin. "The Sugar
Trust, the Wool Trust, and some of the
other trusts, are. however, shouting

SENATE PASSES - -LOWER:
Continued Iroaa Pasre One.
to have an amendment grafted on tna
bill providing for a tax on the produc
tion or ths American Tobacco Company.
Ha declared that the object of his amend
ment was to tax the Tobacco Trust out
of existence, and be sought to accomplish
It by Imposing a prohibitive tax on Pro
duction whenever It reached the limit of
40OO00.000 cigars annually and 20.000,000
pounds of tobacco and 4.000.000 pounds of
snurr, 7ne tax was to be laid In an as
cending scale until the burden became
so heavy that the trust would have to
limit Its production.
Senator Bailey took occasion to make
a vigorous speech In which he opposed
the use of the taxing power of ths gov
ernment thus to destroy and declared
that the Sherman anti-trust law was
ample to correct all trust evils If its crim
inal provisions were enforced. He aald
that there was but a single amendment
to that law necessary, and that was
one which would confer on the govern
ment the power to have a receiver ap
pointed for any combination In restraint
of trade In violation of the Sherman
But the Senator from Texas reiterated
the opposition ha has often expressed
against the perversion of the taxing
power to accomplish by Indirection what
he believes should be accomplished by
direct methods. He said that be hsd op
posed the oleomargarine tax. which was
Imposed as a prohibitive tax to aid the
dairying Interests, and for the same rea
son he had opposed the Imposition of
tne destructive tax on the manufacture
of phosphorus matches, which he be
lieved to be an Invasion of the police
power of the State.

substitutes proposed to it The Indica
tions are that the Senate will pass a bill
originating with the Republicans that
