Washington, June 10. Shortly after
the senate met today. a vote of 31 to
45 was cast against the contention of
Dolliver that only woolen yarn should
be taxed, thus upholding the commit
tee on finance.
Continuing his efforts to tax only
wool in fabrics made partly of cotton,
Dolliver offered a substitute for that
purpose for the paragraph relating to
cloths knit and other fabrics and man
ufactures made in whole or in part of
wool. lie insisted it was perfectly
practicable to assess wool in fabric,
and commenting on his proposed, sub
stitute, he convulsed the senate with
his witty retorts and his humorous al
lusion to the peculiarities in the Ding
The substitute was defeated by a vote
of 30 to 42.

house today adjourned.

Washington. June 10. The finance
committee yesterday and last night
continued its success in trampling
down all opposition to the tariff sched
ule it has fixed for wool and woolen
goods. Every, vote taken throughout
the three sessions' was in favor of the
committee and every proposal submit
ted by Dolliver and Beveridge and oth
er "progressives" was defeated.

How Early Dreams of General
J. Franklin Bell Were Realized
General Bell came to be realized is of
particular interest in Rock Island, Mrs.
Bell being a Rock Island woman and
the general having frequently visited
here. Of General Bell the writer says:
"You have probably heard that as
youngsters the Wright brothers, who
have solved the problem of air flight,
and thereby made the acquaintance of
lines tnat he dreamed out for it back
in the late 'SOs in 1878, to be exact.
"At that time Bell was a second
lieutenant of cavalry stationed out
west. Intensely interested in theprob-!
lems of army organization, he one day
mapped out in his mind a complete re-j

do know that the progressive repub
licans will not tire for a moment in
a campaign to hasten the undoing of
all this work."

themselves for the more important positions.
School "boys and school girls can buy Olivers by saving
their pennies. .
