BLMES WON FOR DEMOCRAS.
Alkenite Decided Congressional Ball
Washington, Aug. 7.-Democracy
triumphed again today when Repub
lican congressmen bit the dust-some
of them swallowed quarts of it-on
the baseball diamond in the struggle
for the championship of the house of
representatives. Score, 12 to 9.
Charges may be perferred against the'
Democratic umpire, James F. Byrnes,
of Sout&i Carolina, who had a rabbit's
foot in his pocket, and, Republican
ball players charge, a loaded half dol
The game, played for charity, real
ly was decided by the umpires. Wil
- liam W. Wilson (Republican), of Illi
nois, did all he could to stem the tide
oftparty defeat, but on all clqse de
cisions when infuriated members of
both parties crowded on the field and
threatened riot, the only solution was
for Byrnes and Wilson to resort to the
toss of a coin. Byrnes had the coin
and did the tossing. Byrnes won ev
Fates With Democrats.
"You're safe," he invariably -order
ed, reversing the decision of the Re
publican umpire. Thus were the
fates with the Democrats, although
they bad not such gilt-edged ball
players on their team as . Nicholas
Longworth, of Ohio.
Longworth, shortstop for the Re
publican team and its captain, played
like a fiend in the field and pounded
out two doubles and a home run. The
tall he knocked for a home run was
stolen by a canal boat driver, who
found it in the canal below the heights
of Georgetown, upon which the game
In the third inning-there were on
ly four innings because another would
would have meant physical defeat ,for
all -concerned-Edwin Z. Webb (Dem
ocrat), of North Carolina, had been
neatly caught at fIrst base, but in his
desperation he had knocked down
Representative Slemp, who w4k guard
Ing the bag. Umpire Wilson called
"Stay where you are,"'shouted Um
pire Byrnes as he rans forward;
" swallow no such Republican dicta
tion. He thinks he's Joe Cannon."
fDhen there came a coniflct of ton
goes and sowme serious threats which
startled the audience of Washington's
eiaI'nadei~ssonalI circles entil
a egjeeilto toss the oln on the
proposition'that the coin be the urn
pfre. ,The Democrats won.
~Again when Wilflam F. Murray
(epuocrat), of Massachusett,. had
slethered to second base and was be
nug touched out by Representative
Kendall (Republican), of Iowa, Um
pire Wilson called him out. Byrnes
*again ordered him not. to s'tir from
his position of party regularity and
to sit on the lid. Another near riot,
another coin tossed, again the Demo
crats 'had won and three more runs
It was a lurid game while It lasted,
the Gopher battery, Miller and Ander
son, of Minnesota, carrying off honors
for the losers and Webb and Kinkead,
of New Jersey, officiating for the1
* Democrats. Other participants for
the Repurblicans were: Lafferty, Ore-'
gon, centre field; Slemp, Virginia,
first base; Porter, Pennsylvania, who
made three hits, third base; Reyburn,
of Pennsylvania, left field, and Farr,
of Pennsylvania, right field. Support
nug the Democratic battery were:i
Harrison, Mississippi, third base;
'Reilly, Connecticut, who lasted one
inning, and McDermott, Illinois, first
base; Carter, Oklahoma, second base;
Driscoll, NeW York, -left field; Gar
rett, Tenn., centre field, and. Scully,
New Jersey, right field.
Scully knocked a heme run, the
ball landing in Congressman Kohley's
.SENATE PASSES STATEHOOD BILL
-Would Admit Arizona and New Nexico
to Union-Recall Provision
Washington, Aug. 8.-The bill
granting Statehood to New Mexico and
Arizona, which has for many years
been the dream of the 'people of these
two territories, was passed tonight,
53 to 18, after re.jection of the Nelson
amendment, which proposed striking
out of the Arizona constitution its
judiciary recalI provision.
The bill as passed 'by the senate is
only slightly changed from the house
measuire, and It is said may be un
satisfactory to President Taft. He
has conxtez.ded all along that he would
be glad to sign th~e Statehood bill if
the Nelson amendment prevailed, but
that it 'was a grave question whether
he would be willing to sign it if the
amendment were defeated, as it was
by 4-3 to 26. The indications tonight
. are that the bill will become a. law
-wihout his sig-nature. Practically
all of the debate on the bill centred
around the Nelson amendment. Even
some senators who declared their op
position to the recall of judges voted
against the amendment on the ground
that if the people of Arizona desired
recall as part of their system of gov
ernment it was for them and not for
congress to decide whether they
should have it.
The bill as passed compels Arizona,
as a condition precedent to entry Into
the Union, to submit the recall propo
sition to the voters for final decision
as to whether it shall remain in their
constitution. New Mexico must vote
on a proposition embodied in the bill
which would make the constitution of
the State easier of amendment.
