It was clear early in the, hearing,
that the committee had made up its
mind to advocate legislation pre
venting wireless operators on ship
hoard from holding hack details of
disasters. Marconi and his chief
engineer, Sammis, both acknowl
edged that a mistake lias been made
in sending the message to operators
to give out nothing until they had
seen their' superiors ashore.

dcavoring to further repudiate the
intimations that he sought to sun
press or delay the news of the sink
ing of the Titanic, Gugliclmo Mar
coni for the third time was today a
witness before the Senate commit
tec. He showed a message he sent
the Carpathia, urging the men to
send the news to the wireless sta
tion at Sasconsct, Mass.. or to ves
sels of the navy. He said Oncralor
Bride told him he had sent 500 pri
vate messages from the Carnathia
to shore stations from survivors to
relatives. Senator Smith said he de
sired nil the messages from Ismav
and the Carpathia. Marconi said
he would have to get them from the

NEW YORK, April 29. After a
session lasting till midnight the con
ference committee of the managers
of the eastern railroads gave out a
statement declaring that they nro
nosed for the Interstate Commerce
commission to act as arbitrators of
the engineer's demands, but the pro
position was declared by the Inter
state commission, and that Chief
Stone of the engineers refused to
accept the commission as artltrat-
speeches, and the latter part of the
day he entered upon a' long distance
debate by retorting to Tail's state
ments. He said the charge that he
is instilling class hatred was arrant
nonsense. In the same connection,
"If Taft's policy of Flabby hide-
cision and helpless acquiesuncc in
the wrongdoing of the crooked boss
and the crooked financier is per
mitted to continue thcire will really
grow up a class hatred in this coun
try. With his address tonight Roose
velt concluded in Massachusetts
where the primaries will be held to
morrow. He made twenty speeches
today and was greeted by large
crowds at the principal points.

through eastern Massachusetts, in
Hoston tonight. From the time he
began speech making at Attleboro
with a talk on tariff revision until
he made his last address at Melrose,
he asked for "a ssuarc deal."
The President spurred his huskv
voice into strenuous action. On the
last leg of his trip he addressed a
packed hall at Lowell. When he
came to talk about bosses and
Roosevelt's charges some one in the
gallery shouted, "lie's a liar."
No, that is not in my vocabu-
ary," said the President.
Later, when he talked about the
Lorimer case, evidently the same
man, called again, "He's a liar."
Taft said he must decline to adopt
Taft suggested an amendment to
the constitution so that the Presi
dent could serve six or seven years,
and be ineligible for re-election.
That, he said, would prevent him
from campaigning for a re-election.
