Washington, D. C, April 21. When

Party Lnes Obliterated.
Washington, April 21. State ami
party affiliations were broken ue
peatedly in the house of representa
tives in the concluding ihours of
the fight on the Cinadian reciproc
ity bill. Democrats denounced their
fellow democrats for supporting a
republican principle and republicans
hurled criticism against their fellow
republicans for n winning with the
democrats toward the free trade goal.
During the seven hours of debate
24 men Bxke on the reciprocity
measure. Two-thirds or them made
pi'eas for its defeat, in seeohes of
from one minute to a half-hour In
length; and in this number were
two democrats from North Carolina
and republicans from many of the
Most of the criticisms of the bill
were from agricultural sections, and
based on the belief that reciprocity
with Canada under the agreement
would injure the agricultural inter
ests of the United State3.
Differences in the North Carolina
delegation, oil democrats, were vig
orously aired on the floor. Repre
sentative Webb said that Claud
Kitchen, who opened the reciprocity
fight last Friday, had no right to
criticise him or other members of
the state delegation who proposed
to vote against the reciprocity treaty.
Mr. Kitchen Jiad accused him of
standing with the republican stiand
pat leaders, but be said 'he could
with e'l'ial justice accuse Kitchen
of having worked with these same
republican leaders in the past.
Temperate words from the pre
siding officer, Mr. .Shcrley of Ken
tucky, brought from Mr. Webb the
statement that he had no personal
ferling ag'aJnst Mr. Kitchen; bur
that four members of the state del
egation proposed to vote against the
agreement .because they believed it
was opposed to all dmocratic ideas.
The 'Minnesota delegation broke
on the rocks of reciprocity. .Mr.

Stone Makes War Speech.
Washington, April 20. A .positive
declaration in favor of giving the
president authority to prevent a repe
tition of the killing of United Statue
citizens by Mexican lxdligerants was
made in the senate today by Senator
William .1. Stone of Missouri, a (lorn-
oirat and a minority member of the
senate committee on foreign rela
Mr. Stone commended the president
for sending United States troops to
the zone of disturbance, contended
for the right of the United States
to protect the lives and property of
United States citizens and condemned
the landing of the Drltish bluejackets
from the Sheerwaters as an act of
"Congress," he said, "should at
once and without delay authorize the
president to employ whatever force
may le necessary to prevent a repe
tition of the bloody outrage commit
ted in Douglas, Ariz., and a repetition
of which 1 threatened In EI Paso,
"His authority in this behalf should
be sufficient to warrant him In using
the military forces in whatever way
he might deem expedient and neces
sary to accomplish the desired end,
even though it should lead to an in :
trusion upon Mexican territory. ;
"Moreover, if any act done under
this authority by the president for;
the proper protection of our own peo-j
p!o on our own noil should lead to hos
tile demonstrations against American
citizens, resident In the Interior of
Mexico," he continued "the president
should be authorized now or later on
to use the military forces of the Unit
ed States if that is found to be neces
sary to protect the lives and liberty
of peaceful American citizen wher
ever domiciled in any quarter of Mex
ico. "If without fault of ours the Mexi
can people themselves create a condi
tion that makes it necessary for this
government to assume an offensive
attitude, they cannot complain." he
Mr. Stone would not agree that Ja-
pan is in any way involved in the
Mexican situation, nor would he con
cede to the Japanese or any old world
power the riht to interfere in the
Mexican (situation. Agrtcing that the
Monroe doctrine Is not directly in j
volved, he argued that nevertheless
the country should stand jealously j
against any encroachment by Kuro
P"an or Aniatic nations.
"We haw not yet," he said, "as
sinned the office of a l oliceuiau pa
trolling these American repunlics, and
even if oilier roiintiien Insist upon
thrusting that station with its respon
sibilities upon us. we will at least ob
ject to those countries exercising a
supervising and directing police pow
er over us."
Senator Slono nald the landing of
the British marines In San Quetitin,
"was not necessary to enable the
three men in question tan Knglish
inan and two Americans seeking to
escape iho danger zone) to board the
vessel, and hence if t he iuailn were
landed merely to prevent a Mexican
forco attached to the revolutionary
movement In Mexico taking ponscs
sion of this .Mexican town, the act
was arbitrary, and being a hostile
demonstration on Mexican territory,
was an effect of war if authorized or
approved by the llrltish government.
It will generally be regarded with dis
approval by tlio United Stated peo
ple." ('barging there Is some powerful In
lerest behind the effort to slir up
strife between the United States and
Japan, Senator Stone said every effort
should l e made to discover and ex
pose the identity of such interest. He
said the president had assured him
in the most positive terms that he
had no information whatever con
necting Japan with Mexican affairs.
Said Mr. Stone: "In emergencies
of this kind, involving grave interna
tlonal complications, partisanship has
no business In our counsels. As a
democrat, esteemed by some friends
on both sides of this chamber as be
ing sometimes somewhat too partisan,
I wish unqualifiedly to indorse this
action of President Taft In ordering
troops to the Mexican border."
To justify United States interven
tion, Mr. Slono detailed many acts
and expressions unfriendly toward
the people of this country and Bnid
that in many .places the Mexican au
thorities are unable to control the sit
uation, producing a fitate of anarchy.
Interest in Katy Suit.
Washington. April 20. Oklahomnns
will wvitch with Interest the prog
ress of one of the most important
cases that has ever been directed
to the attention of tho court of
claims, that of the l.Missourl, Kansas
Texas railroad comiwuiy vs. the
United States government, which in
volves $(;i,2S7,0o0. Joseph II. Choate,
former anrhnsstidor to Great llrilaln,
and one of the nation's foremost law
yers, Is appearing for the company.
The claimant seeks to mover the
value of certain lands in Oklahoma
which, though granted by the act of
congress of July 2". ixcii, were after
ward conveyed by the government
to im her parties.
The act provided that whichever
of three railroad (one of which
was the claimant) should build a line
about ISO miles long through Kan
sas should have the right to build
through the then ilndian Territory,
and a grant of odd sections of land
on either side of its line.
The claimant built the required
lino and did all that it was required
to do. The government conveyed
the land in fee simple to the Indi
vidual Indians and others, and by
a series of later statutes closed the
courts to all ersnns who had claims
thereto adverse to the new grantees
