saying that he did so with the purpose of making
an explanation. He eaid that Senators would prob

usual practice; read the following statement of his

against Injurious amendments. Mr. Chandler said
t&e President named various Republican Senators

i Mr Chanaier said the President had stated that

tors Spooner and Poraker. that the President stated

- limiting it to- two points: (if an inquiry whether
the commission haS acted beyond l his authority
ultra vires, and (2) whether It had violated the con

atated that the President repeated that he tad
reached a final decision that the right of review
f should be thus limited: that thus far he would go
and no further: that his decision would be unal

Proceeding. Mr. Tillman said Mr. Chandler had
' said that the President had assured him that he
I would be in favor of a restriction against the Is
suance of ex parte injunctions, to meet the wishes
of Messrs. Tillman and Bailey.
After informing Mr. Bailey of the purport of the
Chandler Interview, Mr. Tillman said, on the next
- day he told Mr. Chandler that in his and Mr.
Bailey's opinion there, would be no difficulty in
- coming to an understanding on the basis proposed
" by the President. '
I "On the evening of Monday," he went on, "Mr.
• Chandler told me he had so assured the President
'. and asked him not to be disturbed by the news
" paper items growing out of the talk about Senator
Long's amendment published in the newspapers as
" one agreed upon at the White House conference on
He then said that he and Mr. Chandler had con
tinued their- conferences and on April 5 the ex-
Senator had gone to the White House to make a
favorable report to the President. On April 8 Mr.
Chandler told him that he had conferred with Sen
ator Allison asking him to Intervene in the con
ferences then ln progress and that the lowa Sen
ator had agreed to do so.
Later Mr. Allison had 6een the President. On
April H. Mr. Chandler had advised that he (Mr.
Tlllman) and Mr. Bailey see the Attorney Gen
eral. Consequently they had met that official on
the 18th, finding themselves in perfect accord with
him. except as to a email difference in the matter
Of Injunction.
"There was absolute accord from the first," he
eaid, "on the proposition that the court review
should be limited to the inquiry whether a com
mission had exceeded its authority or violated the
carriers' constitutional rights." Mr. Moody had
then agreed to supply the Senators with a memo
randum of his views, and had done so, "and we
have the original of it," said Mr. Tillman.
The next day, Mr. Tillman said, he had seen Mr.
Moody, and had assured him that twenty-six
ratio votes could be counted on for the
compromise proposed, and had told him that it
he necessary to get twenty Republican
vote=. # It was understood that we should work
• r to get the votes necessary to pass the
compromise.** The Attorney General had ex-
I>reesf-d dnubt of getting enough Republican votes
to assure the acceptance of the Bailey non-suspen
stoa proviso, but had Bald that he felt sure of the
Overman amendment. Mr. Moody had, he said,
assured him that it was the fixed purpose to insist
on the Long amendment, and he (Mr. Tillman) had
had no suspicion of a change of front until May 4,
■wr.pri the President had his interview with the as
>d newspaper mem
The reading of the statement evoked many
Fmlles and come laughter from Senators. There
was '•-special merriment over the statement of as
purance by the South Carolina Senator that the
President need not be alarmed over newspaper re
ports. He had, he said, told the Attorney General
that there was no danger of the result as to the
bill if the President should adhere to his plans.
Mr. Tillman then had the clerk read the Moody
memorandum covering the points agreed on as
the basis of amendments.
Mr. Tillman's tlmo expired before he had com
pleted his statement, taut he was permitted to pro
ceed by unanimous consent. He said that he and
ex-Senator Chandler had been informed at the
same time of the President's change of attitude.
Bwi had gone together to Mr. Bailey and all
three had repaired to the home of Mr. Moody, "the
fourth conspirator," and had found him appar
ently entirely Innocent of knowledge cf the change.
He adrn'tted that he had hesitated nbrut enter
ing upon the negotiation with the President be
cause of bis "Ju6t indignation for a past wrong,"
but he had decided to pocket his pride ln the In
terests of a great cause. He also said that Senator
Allison had promised him twenty -two votes on the
Republican side; hence he had felt Justified in his
assurances to the President's representatives.
"It would be useless to pursue the argument,"
said Mr. Tlllman. "The Senator from Rhode Isl
and [Mr. Aldrich] has resumed control of the Re
As a slight murmur of mirth ran through the
Senate Mr. Tillman remarked: "The Senator need
not ehake his head; "but I simply want to say that
he has come nearer being unhorsed and thrown
Into the ditch than at any time since I have been
This produced an emphasized smile ln the Senate.
Turning his attention again to the President, Mr.
Tillman said it th President had stood fast to his
original declaration "we would have won out."
"As for his treatment of me. I shall say noth
ing," he added.
He closed by asking whether or not the Presl-
I dent 6hould be entitled to the glory of the legisla-
I tlon which was conceived in a Democratlo oonven
■ tlon. He would leave the answer to the people of
the country.
I Senator Carter, of Montana, was recognized. He
remarked, with a smile whlca seemed to be under
stood, that if William E. Chandler, formerly a
Senator from New Hampshire, should have the
' floor of the Senate for the rest of the session much
light might be thrown on the subject
"I should be delighted to hear from Senator
Chandler," interjected Mr. Tillman. "and should
also be glad to hear from the President and Mr

dent had been consistently in favor of the House

•The Senator might Just as well treat himself to
the novel sensatlwi of betas; accurate once In a
while," said Mr. Bailey.
Never, he continued, no matter what might be
said on the floor of the Senate, should he allow
himself to be provoked to violent ounUofersy. He
reviewed his interviews with the Attorney Gen
eral, and then said there was one greattmorsl to
be drawn from the unfortunate circumstances of
this bill. That was the danger of the result of In
terference with the legislative branch of the gov
ernment by the executive. However bad the present
situation was, he believed that the future would
draw a valuable lesson from the history of this
There was a slight stir In the Senate when Sen
ator Dolllver took the floor. He said he would not
speak if be had not been called as a witness by
Senator Tlllman. He did not Intend to scold, but
he could not forbear to say that Congress had spent
nearly a year magnifying little questions and neg
lecting Important matters of railroad legislation.
He had endeavored to have action taken at the
last Congress, but without success. He declared
the pending bill had had much criticism from Its
friends, as well as from its enemies. He referred
to the discussion of constitutional questions, saying
that the Senate was the last refuge of the technical
"The poor bill would have been entirely de
stroyed,'* he declared, "If the lawyers had not de
voted so much time to one another. It was a per
fect Kilkenny cat affair. These rival detective
agencies of the law are about to be retired from
business by the prospect of the passage of the bill."
He was glad that the President had taken a hand
and shown himself a leader— "the most superb
moral leadership the American people have had."
Mr. Allison, he said, had been his guide and coun
sellor ever since he had been engaged In consider
ing the question. Mr. Allison had been for more
than thirty years engaged in the public service,
and he (Mr. Dolllver) did not intend to sit silent
and hear the charge made that Mr. Allison had
been trapped into doing something that he did not
understand. He declared that, while not a con
stitutional lawyer, Mr. Allison had a broader and
better comprehension of legislation than any man
of the present generation. He asserted that the
only effect of the Allison amendment would be to
put affirmatively in the bill what was already in it.
Nor did he believe the President had been misled,
for he also was surrounded by constitutional law
yers, "legal sharps, If you will." He had no ques
tion, therefore, of the soundness of the new propo
sitions, and he was willing to accept them.
Senator Clapp also defended the President against
aspersion, 6aying he had achieved the greatest of
all the many moral victoriee that had stamped
him as an ideal American citizen. He also con
tended that the rig lit to go into the courts under
the Constitution had always been in the bill. He
prophesied that when the hysteria of the hour
should have passed away it would be found that
in the essentials of the bill there had been no
chtnge. True, the President might have kept aloof.
but that would haye been a cowardly action, ln-<
consistent with his character. Also, he might have
taken a stand for the House bill, but that, too,
would have been inconsistent. Either course might
have brought more favor, but the President had
not considered that feature, and had taken a firm
stand, enduring tho greatest of all tests— that of
being greater than self.
Senator Long gave the genesis of the Long amend
ment, saying that It had been prepared in confer
ence with Senator Allison, and that at first it was
in the language of the Allison amendments. He
had sought to do nothing more than affirmatively
to confer Jurisdiction in the courts, and he was not
opposed to defining that Jurisdiction.
Later, in conjunction with other Senators, Mr.
Long said he had considered the Allison amend
ment. That provision was. he said, entirely satis
factory to him because lie did not consider it
essentially different from his own amendment.
"It is very evident that the grand old Republican
party is united," said Mr. Tillman. Some time later
Mr. Lodge came into the Senate chamber. He said
he had not heard Mr. Tillman. but that he had
read parts of his statement. He could hardly be
lieve that part in which ex-Senator Chandler was
quoted by Mr. Tillman as saying that the President
said he had "come to a complete disagreement with
Senatorial lawyers," mentioning Senators Knox,
Spooner and Foraker. Senator Lodge continuing
said he had gone to the official stenographer and
obtained the exact sentence used by Senator Till
man, and called up the White House on th© tele
phone, that being the most rapid way of reaching
the President.
'•I read the sentence to the President," said Sena
tor Lodge, "and he said in reply that the statement
which I read to attributed to him by Mr.
Chandler— a deliberate and unqualified false
hood; that Senator Foraker's name was never men
tioned at- all in the conversation: that Senator
Spooner's name was only mentioned by him to ex
press a cordial approval of Senator Spooner'a
amendment. As to Senator Knox, he said that he
did not agree with a portion of his proposed
amendment, but thought that he made a very
strong argument for granting affirmatively the
jurisdiction or authority of the court
"I think, Mr. President," continued Mr. Lodge,
that it is a mere act of Justice to allow this state
ment to go out with that which was read and at
tributed to the late Senator from New Hampshire."
As Mr. Lodge seemed to have finished, Mr. Bailey
asked if the Senator would tell the Senate whether
it was admitted by the Executive that the alleged
conference took place.
'I did not cross-question him in regard to the
statement made by the Senator from South Caro
lina, replied Mr. Lodge, "for I did not hear the
statement myself, and the President has not read
one word of it. I imagine to-morrow, when he has
re £< d x. the -,, statement ln £ull - he will make a reply
which will satisfy the curiosity of the Senator from
J. (3X&.S.
" It _ w 1 a 8 not a matter of curiosity," responded
Mr. Bailey. He explained that if it were true that
the President had not held the conferences, that
also ought to go into the Record, because he took.
it that the Senator from South Carolina was Just
as willing as the Senator from Massachusetts that
the President of the United States should have the
full benefit of the truth.
"I think it also important." he continued, "for
those of us on this side who had no communica
tion to know -whether an ex-member of this body
assumed an authority not granted to him."
Mr. Lodge made the remark in closing that it
must be obvious to the Senator from Texas, from
Ti^K h » (Lod l R had read, that the President
admits fully that he had a conversation with ex-
Senator Chandler on the subject, "as he has had
with dozens end scores of Senators of both parties
In this chamber."
Tho Senate when it met to-day almost immedi
ately entered on the consideration of the remaining
Allison amendments relating to the Jurisdiction of
the federal courts over the orders of the Interstate
Commerce Commission. The first of these pertained
to the venue of courts and provided that, in cases
where two or more carriers were affected, the venue
should bo in the district where either had its prin
cipal office. To this Senator Rayner offered, as an
amendment, a provision in the language of the
Long amendment limiting injunction proceedings to
crises in which the carrier alleges a violation of the
Fifth Amendment to the Constitution or sets up
that the commission has exceeded its Jurisdiction.
The Maryland Senator was cut off before he had
finished Senator Aldrich insisting on the enforce
ment of the rule limiting the duration of speeches.
"The Senator from Rhode Island seems to be In a
great hurry now to rush this matter through, eaid
Mr. Rayner, "but he was not so anxious to oroceed
four or five weeks ago. I will see that he doesn't
crowd the matter so fast, and I will find an oppor
tunity to explain this point."
Senator Long said that the amendment offered by
Mr. Rayner was not his provision, but, even if it
were, the whole subject would be- covered by the
amendment relative to injunctions to be offered
later by Mr. Allison.
Then followed the defence of President Roosevelt
by Senator Carter and the attack on him by Mr.
Bailey, which have been told. After his speech
Mr. Bailey, ln reply to Senator Aldrich, expressed
the opinion that the bill as it stands In the Ben
ate was a better measure than as It passed the
House. The Rayner amendment to the Allison
amendment was then voted down and the contro
versy proceeded on another amendment suggested
by Mr. Bacon, making the proposed court review
apply only to "orders and requirements not in
volving the exercise of discretion by the commis
sion." This was lost, 46 to 22.
An amendment was suggested by Mr. La Follette
prohibiting federal judges who hold railroad stocks

"I have some respect for the judiciary," said Mr.
Hale, and ' moved to lay ' the ' amendment on 'the
table. The motion prevailed, 40 to 21. Messrs.
Galllnger, La Folle tte and McCumber voting with
the .Democrats in opposition. . ■>
Senator Simmons, presented another amendment,
saying that he did so only for the purpose of mak
ing a speech. He declared that the House bill had
not been Improved and that every effort had been
made in the Senate to emasculate that measure.
He predicted that if the hill passed without a re
striction upon the suspension of the orders of the
courts It would be a victory for the railroads. He
then withdrew his amendment.
An amendment was offered by Senator McLaurln
prohibiting judges holding railroad stock from sit
ting, in railroad; cases, and Senator Hale gave
notice of a motion ■to lay on the table. : Senator
Hale declared that "the proposition that a federal
Judge would sit in a case when he is a partner in
Interest with one of the litigants •is monstrous."
He added: "Any Judge so doing is subject to im
peachment." He then moved to lay »he amendment
on the table. ; The motion was carried. 49 to 23.
The Allison court review amendment was adopted
without division, as amended. The provision reads:
The venue of- suits brought in any of the circuit
courts of the-^United States to« enjoin, set aside,
annul or suspend; any. order or requirement of the
commission shall be In the district where toe carrier
against whom such order or requirement may have
been made has its principal operating office, and
may be brought at. any time after such order is
promulgated, and if the order or requirement has
been made against two or more carriers, then In
the district where -any one of said carriers has Its
principal operating, office: and If the carrier has its
principal operating . office in the District of Co
lumbia, then the . venue shall be in the district
where said carrier has its principal office, and juris
diction to hear and determine such suits is hereby
vested in such courts.. . •■
Senator Bacon's .court review amendment and his
Impounding provision were offered and disagreed to.
The Allison amendment extending the expediting
act to hearings on . applications for a preliminary
injunction was adopted. Next was offered the
Allison proviso to the court review amendments,
wn#cn had been adopted. To this Senator Overman
offered as a substitute his amendment providing
for notice to the adverse party in application for
Injunction, but It was disagreed to.
Senator Bailey spoke on the Allison proviso, which
he declared was a recognition at last by the Repub
lican party that courts can be enjoined from Issu
ance of Injunctions under certain conditions for five
days at least. He demanded the rollcall on the
proviso. It was adopted, 73 to 3. The three nega
tive votes were Clarke, of Arkansas; Morgan and
Pettus. The proviso as adopted follows:
Provided, that no Injunction. Interlocutory order
or decree suspending or restraining the enforce
ment of an order of the commission shall be granted
except on hearing after not less than five days'
notice to the commission. An appeal may be taken
from any interlocutory oraer or decree granting or
continuing: an Injunction In any suit, but shall lie
only to the Supreme Court of the United States
Provided, further, that the appeal must be taken
within thirty days from the entry of such order
°£ decree, and it shall take precedence in the Ap
pellate Court over all other causes, except causes
of like character and criminal causes.
The final Allison amendment, which struck out a
few lines at the end of the section and was purely
formal, was agreed to. This completed the adop
tion of the compromise proposition submitted by
Mr. Allison, relating solely to the court features
of the bill.
Senator Culberson moved Section 5 of the bill, ex
tending the time for the filing of complaints for
overcharges from two to three years. At the <-ue
gestion of Senator Dolliver. lie changed the amend
ment so that accrued claims may be brought within

Senator Carmack's Vote May Decide
Committee for Sea Level.
Washington. May 12.— The Senate Committee
on Interoceanic Canals is In a deadlock on the
question of the type of canal to be recommended.
The question was taken up to-day, and the vote
showed five for a sea level canal and five for the
lock type. There were two absentees. Senators
Gorman and Carmack. The latter telegraphed
from Tennessee instructing the chairman to
count his vote for the sea level type, which
would have made a majority against the lock
canal desired by the administration.
After debating for an hour over the question
of accepting the vote of Senator Carmack, the
committee adjourned until Wednesday.
There are three plans before the committee.
Only two of these are being considered seriously
—the sea level canal, indorsed by the majority
of the board of consulting engineers, and the
lock type referred to, which is indorsed by the
administration. The third plan is the Morgan
type, which practically has been rejected by
the committee. y

committee, but only a small portion of the in

An effort was made . by Senator Kittredge to
have Senator Carmack's vote counted, but ob
jection was made- It was argued that this
course would be unprecedented, inasmuch as the
Tennessee Senator had not attended any of the
hearings. Senator Gorman, who has been 111
since the hearings were begun, has made no re
quest that his name be voted.
If Senator Carmack should return to Wash
ington before the meeting Wednesday, undoubt
edly the decision of the committee will be In
favor of a sea level canal.

The Aeolian Co.'s Annual Spring
Received in Exchange lor the
Pianola Piano
A ReaHy Extraordinary
SUCH an impressive offering of used pianos has never before
been presented to the public anywhere in thfs country.
Consider the representative names of the makes ! Here are
15 Chickerings, 12 Steinways, 26 Webers, 5 Knabes and several
examples each of such well known makes as Steck, Hardman,
Kranich & Bach, Fischer, Decker, Hazleton, Wheelock, Sohmer,
etc., etc. — over 200 pianos all told, Uprights and Grands.
But this is only half the story.
These pianos" are of an entirely different type from those that
usually find their way to a salesroom for the second time. They
are not "discarded" pianos, but are pianos that have been dis
posed of by their owners because of actual inability to use them.
There is but one piano house in New York that coujd pos
sibly invite the public to such a sale as this^ — the house that offers
the Pianola Piano in exchange.
It is. the greet demand for the Pianola Piano that brings
this opportunity to your doors. There is 00 other reason • ._ w
imaginable that would bring pianos of this grade, in fine con
dition and in such quantities, into the open market.
In New York there are thousands of good pianos owned by
persons who are unable to play them. These people are exchang
ing their pianos for the new Pianola Piano that anyone can play.
Thus we are constantly securing excellent pianos that have hardly
seen any use. It is such pianos that constitute this sale. . ..
Special Sale of Used
Pianolas — $125
$45 /"A Si7s
n *§l 8 /a
AT A SPECIAL SALE last January we offered used
Pianolas for the first time in the history of the instrument
as low as $125. Persons who delayed acting until after
the sale was over were much disappointed to find that
they could not obtain Pianolas at the special sale prices.
" In renewing the offer now, we urge prompt action, as t^ese
extremely low prices cannot be continued after the sale closes.
There never was a time when a new Pianola could be bought
for a cent under $250. A used Pianola at $125 is therefore a
remarkable bargain.
The full guarantee of the manufacturers covers every Pianola
in all of these lots. Also, the option is given that if at any time
within three months, you should, prefer a new Pianola or a Pianola
Piano, the full purchase price will be allowed on an exchange.
Interest will be charged on deferred payments. . ; ,
