HOUSE SUSTAiINS T.IFT'S YETOES.
Democrats Fail to Muster Required
Two-Thirds-Majority Fights to
Washington Aug. 1S.-In a succes
sion of dramatic events the Democratic
house of representatives today met de
feat in its supreme effort to pass the
wool and free list bills over the presi
dent's vetoes, and virtually fixed upon
adjournment of congress early next
week. The house on Monday, will
agree to the cotton tariff .revision bill
as amended in the senate, but will not
hold congress in session to await the
certain veto on that measure. The
senate cleared away all of its busi
ness and adjournment is assured in
the view of leaders of both parties in
both houses, by next Wednesday at the
The Democratic house majority, with
a great demonstration of enthusiasm,
marshalled its ranks for the great bat

down with flying colors. The party I

Ready for Adjournment.
Tonight the Democratic members of
the ways and means committee deter
mined to end the long session. Mon
day the house will pass the cotton bill
as amended in the senate, containing
the iron and steel, chemical and cot
ton machinery schedules, and the re
ciprocal bituminous coal across the
Canadian border provision and will
send it to the president Tuesday. Con
gress will not be held in session to
await his veto which the house lead
ers concede is certain to follow.
"Congress will adjourn on Wednes
day, at the latest," was the declaration
of Majority Leader Underwood, after
the ways and means committee confer
ence. "We have tried to put our tariff
bills over the president's head and I
have, failed twice. There is no use
fighting it out any longer. As soon as
we pass the cotton bill and amend
ments we will be ready to go. The
president may then veto the measure.
We will not be here to discuss it."
Into Next Week.
Strenuous' efforts were made by sen
ate Democratic and Republican lead
ers, in conference with Mr. Under
wood, Speaker Clark and other house
Democrats, to bring the session to a
- lose tomorrow night but owing to a,
desire of the members of the ways, and
means' committee to study features of
'' the senate'iron aind steel and chemical
schedules before concurring in them,
it was agreed to dispose of the final1
business early next week.
Failure of the attempt of the Demo-.
eratic house to override the vetoes
came in a day filled with-stirring inci
Ndents. The close of the debate, on the
motion of Mr. Underwood to pass the
wool bill over the veto, foundChm
*Clark, the speaker of the house and
an aspirant for the presidency, plead
ing the cause of his fellow Democrats
from the floor, surroundea by a throng
c f his colleagues, who cheered vigor
- ously.. The galleries were filled to
overflowing and the speaker, as he
concluded, was given a demonstration
that for several minutes delayed the
oo~i and Free List Votes.
* n the motion to pass the measure
over the wool veto, there were 227 af
firmative votes, 22 of them insurgent
Republicans and one independent -Re
:publican, while the negative votes;
were 129. The motion to override:
the veto on the free list failed of a
*two-thirds. majority also, being 226 to
,During the three hours of debate on!
the wool bill, the corridors of the Cap-1
itol reverberated time and again with
'shouts of approval and derision from
the floor. - Spirited discussion between
mlembers was frequent.
Republican Leader Mann and Rep
resentative Clayton, of Alabama, had:.
a wordy encounter, which for a mo
ment had a threatening aspect. The
* incident was precipitated when the
* minority leader objected to the Ala
bama member's request to have the
newspaper . editorial printed in the
That the administration was keenly
watching developments was evidenced
in the presence' on the floor of the
house of Messrs. Wickersham ,Hitch
eock, Nagel and Stimson, of the presi
* dent's cabinet. All of them kept a
close tally on the roll call until it was
apparent that the Democrats could not
rally the necessary t'7o-thirds major
Ovation for Speaker.
- Speaker Clark was given an ovation
from both sides of the house when he
left the chair and took the floor to'
end the discussion. The climax of his
address was reached when he said:
"The president has a right to veto'
this bill, if he wants to. I am not
qarrelling with him. I am lament
ing his lack of wisdom as his personal
friend. He has raised an issue that
will rage with unabated fury until the
close of the polls in November, 1912."
This was the signal for such an out
burst as seldom has been known in
the halls of congress. Again and
again, as he proceeded, the Demo
crats applauded, cheered and pounded
the desks until Democratic Loader Un
derwood, who occupied the chair for
the first time this session, almost de
spaired of maintaining order.
SAVED BY BOY'S HEROIS.
Fariter Almost Fatally Overcome by
Edgefield, Aug. 1S.-Some days ago
Mr. J. S. Williams, a prominent plan
ter of the Ropers section of the coun
ty, made a blast in a well that he
was .digging. Later he descended into
the well to remove the rock that had
been torn up by the dynamite. After 1
or two buck6ts had been drawn out,
those who were operating the wind
lass heard heavy breathing and it was
soon discovered that Mr. Williams-had
succumbed to a noxious gas and was
in an almost unconscious condition. To
rescue him became at once the ques
tion, and naturally there was hesita
tion as to who would take the risk.
Finally, a negro boy volunteered his
services, and he was lowered to the
bottom and placed a rope around the
body of the then almost prostrated
victim and he was drawn out, and
medical attention was procured and
Mr. Williams was restored to con
sciousness and is now on the ro d to
But for the prompt and heroic ac
tion of the negro boy there is little
doubt but that Mr. Williams would
have lost his life. The boy fainted as
soon as he was drawn from the well,
but soon recovered. It was a brave
act and the boy deserves even more
