As passed by the senate the bill
differs only slightly from the house
measure, and, it Is said, may be un
satisfactory to President Taft.
He has contended all along that he
would be glad to sign the statehood

whether he would bo. willing to sign
It if the amendment were defeated, as
it was by 43 to 2C. The indications

These undoubtedly will be agreed to
by the house and the bill expedited to
the White house. These amendments
were reported by the senate commit
tee on territories and agreed to with
Practically all of the debate on the
bill centered around the Nelson
amendment. Even some senators who
declared their opposition to the recall
of judges voted against the amend

of Arizona desired the recall as part
of their system of government it was
for them and not for congress to say
whether it shall remain In their con

make the constitution of the state

Chairman Stanley Declines to
Make a Statement Follow
Washington. Aug. 9. At a lively
executive session today the steel

at this time the question of cam
paign contributions in connection
with which George W. Perkins, a
director of the steel corporation, waa
yesterday threatened with contempt
proceedings before the house. A res
olution was passed demanding tho
books of the subsidiary companies

was based on the conclusion that the
house resolution did not give author
ity to go into those matters.
Chairman Stanley refused to make
any statement. Soma members of
the committee asserted Perktns had
been freed only from answering
questions regarding his personal con
