HEAUNG IN SENATE
Progressives and, Eegnlars Show a
. Disposition to Get
I. E. AND THIRD PARTY
Progressive Senators Dissatisfied
with Colonel's Evasion of -Tariff
The attitude of the protrresslves In the
Senate toward CoL Roosevelt and the
third party movement la the chief toplo
ot political discussion In Washington at
this time. The developments In the tariff
legislative situation In the Senate has
demonstrated that Senator La Follette
is again working In harmony with the
so-called "insurgents" In the Senate.
Ther all voted with him In support of
his bill revising the woolen scneauie
Friday, and they are In dally conference
with him concerning the legislative pro
gramme. Most of them are In sympathy
with his proclamation Issued yesterday
counseling party regularity.
Senators Cummlnr. Borah, Kenyon.
Gronna. Works. Bourne. Pslndexter. and
Crawford show a disposition to co-operate
once more with La Follette. These men
all realize that Col. Roosevelt has noth
ing In common with them In the matter
of legislation to revise the tariff sched
ules. This Is the one Issue that stood
in. the way, for, a long time, of the
nwmi senators when they were
considering the advisability of lining up
behind the colonel before the Chicago
convention. His attitude towara tann
i-vi..lnn has never been satisfactory to
them. His record in the White House
was ore of indifference to tariff revision.
Whenever the subject was mentioned in
a way that bade fair to lead to results.
President Roosevelt has always winded
a horn calling his followers to some other
issue leading away from tne tann ques
Tariff Attitude Displeases.
There was a story floating around the
Senate to-day that some of the progres
sive Senators who sought to sound Col.
Roosevelt on the Issues of the coming
campaign were still further displeased to
find that he considers the tariff question
as not the leading Issue, and Is disposed
to put the trust question to the fore. In
this attitude he -Rill not command a large
follow Ins In the Senate, It was said. Sen
ator Dixon, manager for Col. Roosevelt,
has been made aware of the situation In
the Senate, and the last time he was in
Washington he showed some irritation
because of the attitude of his progressive
colleagues. Another symptom of the dis
position of the progressive Republicans to
hold aloof from the Roosevelt movement
Is their apparent unwillingness to flock
to Oyster Bay for counsel and advice.
Some of thenf have neen invited, but
up to this time have declined to go.
Senator Clapp. alone, of all the progres
sives, sems to be absolutely devoted to
Col. Roosevelt and his political pro
gramme. Senator Bourne publicly avows
his loyalty to Roosevelt, and declared
vesterday that he was "willing to follow
Col. Roosevelt In a third party move
ment. If necessary." But Senator Bourne
In his conferences w 1th his colleagues has
expressed privately some dissatisfaction
with the course of the Roosevelt move
ment. Senator Brlstow Is presumably
lojal to Roosevelt, but with a reserva
tion. He has been in close conference
with Senator La Follette In the last few
Party Breaches Closing;.
There has been a signincant realign
ment of political forces in the Senate
In the last few days. The disposition of
the progreslve Republican Senators to
Join the regular Republicans and vote
for the party programme for rev lslng the
tariff has afforded satisfaction to the
regulars and progresslv es alike. The. pro
gresslves, with few exceptions, supported
the Penrose wool bill, and Senator Cum
mins and Senator Brlstow openly de
fended It on the floor of the Senate as
"a step In the right direction."
Yesterday, for the second time, the Re
rublican party was found voting solidly
In favor of a bill revising the sugar
schedule, and one of the leading pro
gressives. Senator Brlstow, of Kansas,
spoke with an air of authority when he
informed his colleagues that he had In
formation that President Taft was ready
to approve the bill that passed the Sen
ate yesterday, by a solid Republican vote,
revising the sugar schedule. It was
regarded as a significant and gratifying
sign of political tendencies that such an
Insurgent as Senator Brlstow should
speak for the Taft administration in a
matter of so much Importance. Republi
can leaders believe that the situation
thus disclosed in Congress looks to a
strengthening of President Taft's chances
In the campaign and bodes no good for
the Roosevelt third party movement.

Abolishment of Willow Tree Alley
Not Approved by South
MASS MEETING HELD
Claiming that a great Injustice will bj
done to them should the law recently
passed by Congress calling for the abol
ishment of Willow Tree Alley, between
Third and Four-and-a-half Streets
and Mainland Avenue and C Street
Southwest, as a place of residence,
and that a public plav ground be made
In Its stead, go Into effect, a large num
ber of property owners and taxpayers
of that vicinity met In a public mass
meeting last night In St. Dominic's Hall,
Sixth and E Streets Southwest, and
adopted resolutions of protestation, which
are Immediately to be placed before the
Supreme Court of the District of Co
lumbia. "Should this law go Into effect, it
means that several hundred people who
at present reside In this alley will have
to move and seek homes elsewhere,"
said Martin WIegand. a lumber mer
chant of Four-and-a-half Street and
Maryland Avenue, "and. It Is from these
people that a large number of the small
business men, such as grocers, druggists,
dry goods stores, shoemakers, &c, make
their living. Yet these very same men
are to be assessed for "benefits" which
they are to receive from the playgrounds.
What the benefits will be Is more than
I or any one else In this locality can
Will Derive No Benefit.
Under the law which was rassed,
one-third of the expense of the so-called
Improvement was to be levied by a Jury
of condemnation against property al
leged to be "benefited" by the change,
but the property owners and business
men of this section are emphatic In
their statements (that theyi will derive no
benefits from the plaj ground, but. on
the contrary, they say that their busi
ness will suffer severe losses, and In
some cases means ot a livelihood taken
"I fall to see," said another well known
business man of Southwest Washington,
and a large property holder, "wherein
there is going to be any Improvement
by making a plaj ground out of this
alley. I am not an antagonist to im
proving local conditions, but approve of
any effort in that direction, provided
that it can be attained without injustice
to any citizen. But In this case a great
Injustice Is being done the citizens of
Resolutions were drawn up at the
meeting last night by a committee com
posed of Martin WIegand, John T
Wright, John Qulnn, and Rudolph Saur,
nnd these will at once be presented to

Lieut. Killing Flashes Message Ten
Miles from Curtis
A TEST MADE ONCE BEFORE
An entirely successful i attempt to send
a wireless message from an aeroplane In
night was made on the aviation field at
College Park. Md , yesterday afternoon
for the second tlm In the history of
army aviation. The wxperlments were
conducted with a view to using wireless
attachments on aeroplanes at the maneu
vers In Connecticut In August
Lieut. Milling made the trial ln'an old
Wright biplane, the veteran of over SCO
flights. A very light wireless apparatus,
weighing only seventy-five pounds In all,
was Installed In the machine. A battery
Incased In aluminum was placed behind
LIEUT. II. O. MILLING,
In biplane thst carried wlrrleM apparatca
the passenger seat, the control apparatus
was fastened to the seat, and the sending
key attached to the elevating lever A
couple of wire screens at either end of
the planes took the place of a radiating
circuit, to communicate the vibrations.
Gusty wind prevented the trial early
In the day, out about S o'clock ev en
tiling was favorable. Lieut. Milling took
hla sent and the canvas bird rose with
a roar of propellers. After circling
around the field, it bore away to Laurel,
Md , ten miles from College Park, and
messages wcro successfully received from
First Teat In Texas.
The experiment was successfully per
formed once oefore by army aviators at
San Antonio, Tex . in March, 1311. Lieut.
Foulols, now at College Park, and 1'ar
merlee, the Wright aviator who was
killed, improvised a wlreles set on a
biplane and sent a message fifteen miles
In France, wireless experiments have
been performed from dirlgble balloons
for some eirs, and recently to some ex
tent In aeroplanes
The new Wright biplane which has
been received, but not yet accepted by
the government, was given several trials
vesterday. in the morning It successfully
performed the endurance test, remaining
aloft two hours and one minute Al
though a wind of twelve to seventeen
miles an hour was blowing, the little
craft rode very steadily.
In the afternoon speed and eievat'on
tests were successfully completed The
machine traveled at the rate of 519 miles
an hour, and remained in the air twelve
mlnutesp during the speed test The ele
vation trial Is an ascent of 2.000 feet in
ten minutes. Another government re
quirement Is that the aeroplane be able
to rise from a plowed field.
