9 CAUGHTJAPPING. Democrats Lose Their Fight Against Tariff Board Bill. A Tote Will Be Taken Saturday Horning. THE FILIBUSTER ENDS After a Session Lasting Until 4 O'clock This Morning. Feeling Safe, Long Distance Talkers Had Gone Home. Washington, March 8. Order out of chaos was brought at 3:05 o'clock this morning when the senate after listening to many hours of filibuster ing reached an agreement that at 8:30 o'clock Saturday morning a vote p oii Id be taken on the bill to create a permanent tariff board. It was like snatching a brand from the burning when friends of the measure accom plished that result. What had been supposed to be the death knell for this measure had been sounded sev eral hours before. The senate at 4 o'clock adjourned until 10 o'clock to day. Unfamlliarity with the rules of the senate on the part of the men who were engineering the obstructive tac tirs was responsible for the crumbling of the opposition. Senator Stone, con fident of his ability to hold the floor for the night had permitted the coterie of long distance talkers, who were to relieve him to go to their homes. Learning that fact. Senator Beveridge invoked "rule nineteen" to take Sen ator Stone from the floor. Under this rule, no senator "shall speak more than twice on any subject in debate on the same day without leave of the senate." Senator Stone had spoken early In the day on the tariff board bill. He Fpoke again at the night session. Dur ing his later speech he moved to pro ceed with the sundry civil bill, which motion under the rules of the senate had the effect of taking him from the floor pending the disposition of that motion. The motion was defeated and at once upon his attempting to resume his speech Senator Beveridge made the point of order that Mr. Stone had already spoken twice. "Vice President Sherman was Inclined not to provoke a controversy and at once asked Mr. Stone If he had spoken twice. Mr. Stone decided he could not remember. Thereupon the vice president called on official stenographers and it was found that their notes verified Mr. Beveridge's point. Mr. Sherman sus tained the point of order which de prived Mr. Stone of the floor. It was 2 o'clock when Mr. Stone was com pelled to take his seat. Senator Over man essayed to fill his shoes but was not equipped for a long speech and an hour later the agreement was made fixing the time for a vote. Stone Eorces Adjournment. At the request of several senators the agreement Included the taking up of the navy appropriation bill but af ter that had been considered for a lit tle less than an hour, Mr. Stone forced an adjournment. He made a point of no quorum and as so many senators had gone home after getting the tar iff board bill out of the way it was im possible to muster enough senators to remain in session. Considerable bitterness was exhibit ed by Democratic senators when Mr. Krone was taken from the floor. The Missouri senator himself protested loudly that the record of his previous speeches should be read so that the senate might judge whether he had exhausted hia right under the rules to speak on the tariff board bill. The vice president declined to read these speeches and called Mr. Stone to order when he declared the ruling of the chair to be arbitrary and un just. Mr. Stone, repeating the charge, then sat down. Senator Overman pro tested against the word of the stenog rapher being taken against the word of a senator. Mr. Sherman said the word of the senator had not been given; that when called on to say whether he had spoken twice that day the senator had declarei he could not recall having done so. Mr. Sherman said his only course had been to have the record of debate examined. ' Ran Out of "Wind. Not having any speakers present who would undertake to hold the floor for the remainder of the night and during the following forenoon Sena tor Stone was a willing listener to a "I am all right now, thanks to Dr. Miles' Heart Remedy." The same relief is ready for you. Are you sure you do not need it? If Dr. Miles' Heart Remedy helped Charles Holmes, why won't it help you? . "I waitroubled with heart diiease, and after reading about Dr. Miles' Heart Remedy, I trot a bottle. Be fore I rot the Hut Remedy I had to tit up most of the night, and felt very bad at my stomach. Whatever I would eat made me foci worse, and my heart beat very fast But thanks to Dr. Mile' Heart .Remedy, I am all right now. I eat food, sleep good, and feel like a sew man, al though I am almost 68 rears old. I have been a soldier in the late war f the rebellion, and was badly woonded." CHARLES HOLMES, Private Co.

MILES MEDICAL CO, Blkhart, Ind. suggestion which came a short time later from Senator Carter of Montana. It was proposed by Mr. Crrter that a time be fixed on Saturday for a vote on the tariff board bill so that all of today and tonight could be devoted to the consideration of appropriation bills and bills on the calendar. - Senator Carter said it was the duty of members to enact the appropria tion measures and he declared that Democrats would not be justified in forcing the supply bille into an extra session. He pointed out that on two occasions within the memory of some of the senators present the Democrats had enacted appropriation bills to cover the expenses of the government for a period in which a Republican ad ministration was to be in control. This statement was in response to the assertion of Senator Owen that ap propriation bills should be turned over to the new Democratic congress. Objects to a "String." "just as every one began to breath easy in the confidence that the pro posal was to be accepted. Senator Hey burn objected to any unanimous con sent agreement which had "a string attached to it." The string of which he complained was a tacit understand ing that in the event of the adoption of Senator Carter's suggestion a re cess should be taken immediately so the exhausted senate could get some rest Mr. Heyburn said he would not consent to the fixing of a time for a vote -unless the senate proceeded im mediately to the consideration of ap propriation bills. j - Immediately a group of senators surrounded. Mr. Heyburn and pleaded with him to relent. Mr. Stone dis played some anger because of the ob jection and he too had to be pacified. Senator Carter finally suggested that a compromise might be made by in corporating in the agreement a rule to proceed with the naval appropriation bill. Senator Stone accepted this be cause he believed it could be gotten out of the way in half an hour. Sen ator Heyburn interposed no objection, saying he was satisfied so long as the senate made progress. The naval bill took more time than was anticipated and after nearly an hour had been devoted to it, Mr. Stone protested that it was evident that it could not be fin-' ished without keeping the senate too long and he moved an adjournment. The motion was rejected, whereupon he raised the point of no quorum. Rather than rout the tired senators from their beds. Senator Perkins moved to adjourn. The , postoffice appropriation bill, which was considered early in the evening, was not finished. Five Supply Bills Pass. During the day the senate passed the pensions, diplomatic and consular, fortifications and military academy bills, notwithstanding the fact there was every indication the Democrats were seeking to delay action on the supply measures. Republicans came to the conclusion reluctantly that the Democrats were in earnest in their filibuster against supply measures. After considering the situation, some of the leaders be came of the opinion the administra tion might be led into a political pit fall if appropriation measures were forced into an extraordinary session by reason of obstructive tactics by the Democrats. So many messages from business men have poured in upon Republican leaders, urging them to beseech Presi dent Taft not to call an extra session, that the party leaders became disturb ed about the future of the party. Many of the commercial interests in sisted that Canadian reciprocity was not worth what it would cost the par ty. These communications, or at least many of them, were taken to the White House, and President Taft let it become known that he likewise had been bombarded by messages of simi lar import. According to trie best information, President Taft has not wavered in the determination to call an extra session, but has made it clear that he would assemble congress some time between March 15 and 20 if the senate failed to act upon the Canadian agreement. It was said if any of the appropria tion bills failed he would -call con gress together immediately after March 4, allowing practically no in terval between the expiration of . the Sixty-first congress and the convening of the Sixty-second. Curtis Pleads for Sulloway Bill. During the afternoon session the Democrats offered no objection to the pension bill carrying $153,000,000 until Senator Scott attempted to put the Sulloway general service pension bill on the appropriation measures as a rider. The Sulloway bill would add about $50,000,000 to the annual roll and would grant pensions indiscrimlnately to all veterans of the civil war who had served 90 days and had reached the age of 62 years. Senator Lodge saw trouble coming and had made a point of order on the amendment, declaring it to be an at tempt to put general legislation on :in appropriation bill. While the point was pending Senator Curtis pleaded for the amendment's adoption. He said it was but an act of justice to the old soldiers and declared in a few years the extra expense would bj entirely wiped out, due to high death rate among the vet erans. 1 Vice President Sherman sustained the point of order and the regular ap propriation bill then was passed. Following the disposition of the pen sion bill the senate took up and quick ly disposed of the diplomatic and con sular bill carrying about four million dollars, and the fortification bill, car rying $5,000,000. It had required just 15 minutes to get these three supply measures out of the way. This was too rapid work to suit the plans of Senator Owen and when the military academy appropriation bill, carrying $1,800,000, was taken, up, he be gan a little filibuster. He first in sisted that he would not consent to have dispensed with the first, formal reading of the bill, covering 84 pages. Several senators, both Democratic and Republican, gathered about the sensi tor's desk and pleaded with him not to stand in the way of the supply bill. "I want to force an extra session," he told them. "This congress has no moral right to pass these measures." While the senator was engaged in explaining . his attitude, the reading clerk "through pure inadvertence" overlooked about 15 pages of the bill and the first thing Senator Owen knew the bill was being read a second time for amendment. Along toward 6 o'clock, when it was announced that a recess until 8:15 would be asked for. Senator Owen said he would let the military academy bill pass. LEAVE IT TO THE CHILDREN. B. P.
