CLARK DEFINES HIS
Speaker Declares He Never
Advocated Forcible Union
By JOHN SNURE.
Speaker Champ Clark, who reached
Washington this morning, has given out
a statement in which ho declares that
tariff will bo tho overshadowing ques
tion before Congress at the coming ses
sion ana with it. the trust question.
Mr. Clark, In his statement, takes
pains to set himself right regarding his
Canadian views. He declares ho has
never spoken In favor, of forcible annex
ation of Canada and he'conslgns to the
"Ananias Club" anybody who Imputes
such a statement to him, asserting It to
be both false and preposterous. What
he says in this regard Is of political
Importance for the reason that the op
ponents of Mr. Clark In the Democratic
party, those who do not want to see him
nominated for President, have seized
on his alleged assertions respecting Can
anadlan annexation and have used them
to hurt him politically. They have
pointed to these reported assertions &b
Indicating that the Speaker did not know
how to bridle his tongue and that he
would be an unsafe man to put in the
As the Speaker views it, and he has
been speaking In nineteen States, the
trend of sentiment Is toward the Demo
crats. Ho belloves new tariff bills will
bo passed tills session, that1 the anti
trust Jaw, will not b repealed, that
there will be .an efforVfto 'make Jt

the session will be long. Important, arid
That President Tafl has not strength
ened himself by his trio is the view
taken by Speaker Clark.
What the Speaker says as to tho
political and legislative outlook will be
scanned carefully In Congressional and
political circles. It lb well understood,
of course, that Mr. Clark Is an aspirant
lor tne rrcsiaencq, ana wnat ho says
Is uttered quite as much with the
White House In mind as with tho legis
lative situation. Friends of Mr. Clark
already are busy in his behalf and It
is the expectation that with the open
ing of the session there will bo much
more activity in the promotion of his
What to Expect.
As to politics and legislation, the
"Einco Congress adjourned 1 have
made speeches or lectures la nineteen
States, principally In the West and
Northwest. My observations are that
the trend of public opinion is toward
tho Democrats. President JTaft's long
tilp seems to have loft thin,? in statu
quo, so far as he Is concerned.
"This will bo a long, Important, and
busy session of Corgress. I have conio

the work started at tho earliest possi

the sooner we will flnlsh. It takes n.
great amount of time, at tho long ses
sions to get through wlth the great sup
ply bills. At the short sessions they
are Jammed through from tho very no

Tariff and Trusts One.
"But after all Is said and done the
tariff question will be the overshadow

and with it the trust question. 1 have
always considered the tariff question
and the treat question as one question.
Of course, the fact that President Taft
etoed our tariff bill will lengthen the
session, as we will undoubtedly pass

Ten Thousand Copies of Re
port Destroyed Harlan
Called Chief Justice.
Becauso of a mistake, which credited
tho lata Justice John M. Harlan with
being Chief Justice of the United States
Bupremo Court, and member of the
board of regents in the Smithsonian In
stitution 10,000 copies ot the annual re
port of tho Institution aro to bo de
stroyed. Before tho double error was discover
ed several hundred volumes of the re
port, which Is a cloth-covered, half

eral weeks, but the 10,000 revised copies

yUll be put out In a few days.
JKvery effort was made by thoso con
nected With the institution to keep
secret the fact that the costly and em
barrassing error had been made. Ex
planation was made to Chief Justice
Edward D. White that there was no
attempt to make It appear that the late
Justice Harlan occupied his position. It
was said that tho mistakes were purely
clerical, and that no reflection was In
tended. When James G. Traylor, in the chief
clerk's office, was confronted with tho
report that the delay In tho circulation
of the book was due to two mistakes in
the official positions of the late Justice,
he admitted tho roi'oit was true. Dr.
F. W. True also confirmed the report,
but both made earnest requests that
no publicity be given tho errors.
They said tho mistake, had boon made
by ono of the oldest employes of the
Institution. It was explained that the
Chief Justice of the United States Su
preme Court Is always made an ox of
ficio member of tho boarll of regents,
and that ho presides at the meeting
of the board.
The late Justice Harlan attended a
meeting of the board and presided, with
the result he was given the title of
Chief Jufttlce of the Supreme Court In

an associate Justice, and pnssed away
fcoveral months before tho copy for the
report went to the printer. '

transfer problem Is to do something;
which will force the street railway com
panies of the District to combine Into

fare. This Is a right to which I think
we naturally are entitled."
These declarations were mado by En
gineer Commissioner William V. JuU
son at the conclusion this afternoon of
the second hearing on universal trans
fers, when the citizens' transfer bill
and the Works transfer bill as amend
ed by tho Commissioners wero com
pared. Difficulties 'Shown.
Nearly two hours were consumed In
a discussion of tho provisions of both
bills and the difficulty of framing legis
lation intended to obtain universal
transfers in the District" under existing
conditions was clearly brought out.
While the Commissioners gave no in
dication of what action they will take
regarding the form of bill they will In
dorse for enactment by Congiess, it Is
Relieved the result of the hearing will
bo tho recommendation of a bill con
taining features of both bills.
Charles W. Darr, chairman of the
Citizens' Conference on Universal Trans-
feis, explained to the Commissioners the
changes the executive committee of the
conference suggested in the Commission
ers' amendment to the Works bill. He
pointed out that the chief difference be
tween It and the citizens' bill lies In the
provision of the Commissioners that Jn
them shall be vested the duty of de
torminiiiir thn division of fares In con
nection with universal transfers, while
the citizens' bill provides that Congress
shall bpeciflcally name the division of
tares, one-nait to cacn Komvixuy, c
lng nothing in this respect to the dis
cretion of tne Commlslsoners.
Would Defeat Purpose.
Mr. Darr Insisted that unless Congress
should, name the rate of division the
railway companies would tie up indefi
nitely In the courts any transfer bill
enacted, and that the purpose of the
law would be defeated. Commissioner
Judson defended the Commissioners'
draft, and contended that pending such
litigation the railway companies would
have to keep transfers in effect.
Over this point of difference In the
two bills the discussion centered. At Ine
close Commissioner Rudolph told tho
commltteo the Commissioners would
consider the arguments presented jnd
anonunco their decision later.
