Escorted by the police, the deputation arrived at St. Stephen's entrance to Parliament. where it was met by Chief Inspector Bcantlebury. who handed ts> Mrs. Pankhurst a letter from the Premier re gretting his inability to receive the deputation. Angrily throwing the letter on the ground Mrs. Packhurst aimed. "I stand on my rights as the Kings subject to enter the House of Com sssnsT** and she endeavored to force in en trance. ASSAULT OX INSPECTOR. The police tried to induce the women to dis perse quietly, and then began to take the mem ben of the deputation by the anna to lead them away. To the surprise of the spectators. who were massed around the entrance. Mrs. Pankhurst slapped Inspector Jarvis in the face, knocking his cap in the mud. There were cries of -Shame'"' and several of the spectators told tee- suffragette leader that she had no provoca tion to do MEn ■. thine r A moment later another member of the depu tation. Mrs. Saul Solomon, knocked off the in spector's cap a second time, while others made determined attempts to rush the cordon of po lice. Eventually the entire deputation was placed under arrest. By this time, a second deputation had left Caxton Hall, accompanied by some hundreds of suffragettes ana others, and an attempt was made to reach the House of Commons through the underground passage leading from West minster Bridge. This, too. was unsuccessful, but for two hours the whole district was in a state of uproar, the police dispersing the crowds and arresting women right and left. The -windows of many of the government buildings were smashed with stones wrapped in paper. Altogether, 112 -women were arrested, Includ ♦fcjr'vSlrsr Fankhursl, Mi.-. -Sc.lwi.on, *h> Hon. Mrs. HaverSeld. daughter of Lord Abinger; Miss Margrefsor.. Mips Maud Joachim. niece of the violinist, and many other prominent women. London is becoming accustomed to suffragette raids on Parliament, but the idea that a more determined attempt than ever was to be made to-night to force Premier Asquith's hand at tracted probably fifty thousand persons to West minster. The authorities had made ample prep arations to deal with the situation. All avenues cf approach were cordoned by police and am bulances -were provided to deal with cases of accident Within the cordon was a large num ber of members of both houses of Parliament ■watching the scene, and scores of ladies In din ner wraps and men in evening- clothes. Among them were Lord and Lady Granard. Lord Mor ley. Lord "vTolverhampton and Lord Althorp. Just before S o'clock the Prime Minister him «<r!f drove away from the house unobserved by Ike crow/L In Caxton Hall were Viscountess Harherton, Mrs. Israel Zangwill, Miss Beatrice Forbes- Robertson. Miss Elizabeth Robhins and Miss Beatrice. Harraden. besides all the well known suffragette leaders. Great excitement was caused among the crowd by the movements of the equestrian suf fragette. Miss Vera Howe, who, in riding habit and bowler hat, rode backward and forward, carrying messages between the different depu tations. She was finally arrested. MANY PEP-SOX IN" HOSPITALS. Throughout the demonstrations the police behaved with great forbearance, but the suffra gettes in many cases forced them to use rough tactics. There was much screaming, and in Borne cases fainting, and many women had to be taken to the hospitals in a state of collapse. The great crowds indulged in considerable horseplay, but generally no active sympathy was extended to the suffragettes. At 9 o'clock me police had orders to clear the whole vicinity cf Parliament, and they gradually pressed the trowd back- On? policeman's horse was ■sawed by a man in the crowd and a constable *as badly injured. The Brat deputation comprised Mrs. Pank buirt. Mrs Solomon. 111 esson. Mrs. Haverfleld. Miss Joachim. Mrs. Mansell wife cf Colonel Mansell and granddaughter of the late Lord Wimborne: Mrs. Frank Corned sis .ter-In-law cf the late member of the Hous<% and Miss Xeligan. who is seventy-nine years old. These were all arrested. Another woman t>lat.ed under arrest was Mrs. Rose Massey. wife cf Colonel Massej 1 . According to one paper. Inspector Jarvis will bring a charge of assault against Mrs. Pank bum. When the latttr resolutely declined to bu«!gis from the entrance of the House of Com- Bons, the inspector pressed forward his amis *ad pushed the woma.i away. Mrs. Pankhurst struck him in the face, according to some wit nesses, more than once. knocking off his hcl aaet. The inspector quietly picked up his he.l net and continued pressing the deputation «*ck. Mrs. Solomon then 6truek him. I>r.

Terms of Sugar Company Suit Set tlement Unsatisfactory to Them. Bondholders of the Pennsylvania Sugar Re finding Company will oppose the terms of the settlement of the suit against the American Sugar Refining Company, it was learned yester day. This settlement must be approved by the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia, which appointed George H. Earle, Jr.. receiver of the Pennsylvania company. Mr. Earle began the suit. While counsel fur the plaintiff and defendant in this action were ptodged to secrecy regarding rms of the agreement to settle the action, it was said there was to be a cash payment by the American company of $750,000, surrender of taw seciiriti--? for the loan to Adolph Segal of 11^90.000 and the cancellation of the loan. The papers submitting the settlement to the court prepared by J. De F. Junkin, counsel for Mr. Earle, were completed in Philadelphia la.y. and will be filed probably this week; A little less than one-third of the value of the bonds of the Pennsylvania company is repre sented by those who will contest the settlement. The contention will be that the cash payment was not large enough in view of the years the plant was closed and the consequent deteriora tion in th« value of the bonds. It was said yesterday that if the court should disapprove of the K-rms of settlement it might mean a re sumption of litigation. CZAR MAY NOT GO TO POLTAVA.

OPERA FOR THE MASS HAMMERSTEIX TO MAKE PRICES LOW IN FALL. Back from Europe Enthusiastic Over New Scheme and His Spanish Tenor. '"'scar Hanunerstein. who returned yesterday on [n North German Lloyd steamer Kronprinz Wilhelm. settled birk in a capacious chair in his private office at his Victoria Theatre last night and announced that the preliminary sea son at the Manhattan, including September and October, would be devoted to popular opera. This did not mean thai the repertory would be light, he S3 id. but the prices would be so low that every lover of high grade music, no matter what his means, would be able to get a scat. "Elcktra." "Thais." "Salome." "Louise." all in French, and in German "Tannhauser," "Lohengrin" and the "Meistersinger" would be in the repertory. .- . Mr. Hummer.«tein was too fatigued to give out his complete plans, including the results of his trip abroad, but he was not too tired to wax enthusiastic about his scheme for the. first two months of his open season. The prices will be $2 for the seats in the first four rows in the orchestra. The remainder in that part of the house •.•.ill be $1 vi The cheapest seats will be 35 cents. In the first few weeks, the impresario said, he would know whether his plan would b* a success, .and if it should be popular. then he would continue the perform ances elsewhere. But the great artists win not sing at the popu lar performances. That does not mean. Mr. Hammers tein said, that the singers will not be of great merit. He had many, very many, singers, he declared, and none was mediocre. Over $100,000 he had advanced on contracts. Awaiting him at his office wen peven cable messages relating to contracts, which he closed forthwith. As for mail, he ruffled his hair in despair when he saw the big stack of letters. The Impresario engaged while abroad seven barytones, six sopranos and four tenors. He had "ransacked Europe." as he expressed it. and then he went into raptures about his new Spanish tenor, SeQor Federico de Carasa, "the equal of Caruso," he said. Seflor de Carasa is twenty-two years old. He carries an eight year contract as the result of his interviews with Mr. Hammerstein. That Is the longest contract, it was said, that any singer has suc ceeded in making. "I will have th° same company, practically, and many additions," Mr. Hammerstein said. "Miss Lina Cavaneri will make her debut in "La R<Hle H^lene.' and" But the impresario trailed off into his plans for the popular experi ment* The full orchestra will not play at these, he said, but thero will be sixty-five pieces. He believed, h" declared, that there was a great clas-s which would patronize opera if the prices were popular. They were genuine music lovers, those who wanted the "meat" of the musical composition* and not the "candy." he said. Much of his reflective tim« abroad was occu pied in considering the feasibility of the popular price plan, and when Mr. Hammerstein had de cided that the time was ripe for an experiment he delved more deeply than he otherwise would have done Into the search for more singers. He had surprises, he said, and non»- would be morn pleasing than Senor Carasa. When the Impresario is r^ste*!, has answered his mail and purchased a hat to take the place of the one macerated in Paris, he wilt get down to the preparation of an announcement of his Vomplete plans for his 1909-10 season at the Manhattan.

Onille Encircles Field, However, After Three False Starts— Ignition Causes Trouble. [From The Tribune Bureau) Washington. June. 29. — After four trials, ex periencing more trouble than has ever been seen in public with a Wright aeroplane. Orville Wright got the machine being built under con tract for the government into the air at Fort slyer this afternoon, and made a short circuit of the field. It was an exciting afternoon. more exciting probably for the spectators than for the Wrights themselves. They knew what a balky aeroplane meant, and the spectators had never seen one before. All sorts of suggestions were hazarded as to the cause of the trouble — Orville had "lost his nerve." the machine had been built wrong, it could not fly, and the brothers could not carry out their contract with th*» government unless with months of extended time. Then, just as 11 was getting dark, the machine went off into the air. and Orville made a short circuit of the field, just to show what he could do, and the machine was brought to earth and housed Just as it became entirely dark. The trouble, after all. was just defective ignition. and was remedied by driving a plug a littl« tighter in the sparking apparatus, but for a time it looked to th« spectators as if the brother "conquerors of the air" had met temporary de. feat. There was slmost as bis a crowd as on Mon day, the day of disappointment for the Senators and Representatives. There, was a much smaller official crowd, but the fie'd was ringed around wl'h carriages, automobiles and spectators on foot. It was after 5 o'clock when the wind dfed down sufficiently to warrant bringing out the machine When it was put on the starting rail there was still a noticeable wind down the track, and a little time was spent in making the final adjustments and waiting for the wind to die <>ut. PROPELLERS WORK SLOWLY. Wilbur and the mechanic stepped to the back of the machine and gave a twist to the big pro pellers. They caught the spark of the s'artir;^ battery almost instantly, slackened their hum a trifle as the magneto was cut in and then picked up again. But in spite of the great size of the propellers, it was noticeable that they were running very slow!v, and It seemed almost impossible that they could force the big machine into the air. Wilbur stood at the tip of the wing and bal anoed the machine on the rail, and as Orville tripped the trigger that released the weights. Just a' 5. "7. the big white bird darted down the track. It seemed, however, to lack the life and energy noticeable with the old machine last year, and it went into the air sluggish!-. th<» end of the rail. Orville threw the front rudders up rather sharpl-. and the machine seemed to start on the rise. Then, to the sur prise of every one. when the bottom Of the frame was about ten feet from the ground and less than fifty yards had been covered, the aeroplane swerved to the right and one wirg tipped, dragging the ground. It made a half circle. like a wounded bird, and brought up in a cloud of dust about one hundred yards fr'>m the end of the rail. The engine was still running, but the operator cut thr.t off. and showed that he was not injured by slipping from his seat to the ground. The crowd surged forward, but was held in check by the mounted pickets, and several officers came up to see what was the trouble. That was Just the difficulty. Nobody could tell what the trouble was. and the only explanation vent ured by Mr. Wright himself was that there \v;i3 too much wind at his back and that he could not get start enough. It was found that except for a rip In toe canvas the machine was unhurt The rip was speedily repaired, and the machine was put on Its trucks again and started back for the monorail. This brought forth the demonstration of the day- There was a general clapping of hands, and the horns of about one hundred and fifty aut >mo biles "honked" encouragement to the aviator. SECOND EFFORT AN IMPROVEMENT. The pulleys were all gone over and oiled afresh. The machine was started again at 6:40 o'clock without adding to the fourteen hundred pounds of iron weights that gave it impetus. This time it flew a trifle further and landed in a direct line with the rail, but the efTort was scarcely more successful than the first The next effort was worse than the first two, as the machine failed to leave the ground, but slid along for fifty yards and stopped. It was a most mysterious performance, and the fourth trial was made v.ith little hope among the spec tators that it would be more successful than the others. However, "he ignition had been advanced, and the engine, when it started, hummed a different tune from that heard be to**. Off the airship went, down the 'r, k. ->nd this time she did not light The macHne flew law. but she ftVw and there was a soft -heer from the thinning ring «f watcher* abou-: 'he field. It was not much of a demonstration, rather a general sigh of relief that the stubborn bronco of the air had found a master. Even at tts greatest dip of the ground the machine was not more than fifteen feet in the Contibued on secoad pare. BRETTON WOODS HOTELS. WHITE MTS., N. H. Representatives at 1180 E'way. Tel. 474» Mad.— Asm PRICE THREE CENTS. CORPORATION TAX NO! BEFORE SENATE MADE REGULAR BUSINESS BY TECHNICAL MOVE. Will Pass. Smgs Aldrirh. but Will Be Repealed or Modified in 7Vo Years. fFrom The Tribune Bureau.] Washington. June 29. — The so-called "Taft amendment" for a tax of 2 per cent on the net earnings of corporations is now the unfinished business before the Senate. It is expected that a vote on its adoption will be taken within tea days, and unless there is a marked change la sentiment before the close of that time. th» amendment, as drawn by Attorney General Wickersham. President Taft and Senator Root.; will be adopted. The leaders are hopeful but." not certain that a vote on the amendment can I be taken before the close of this week. Senator Aldrich is so confident that no com bination can be made to defeat the amendments that he will leave Washington to-morrow for a few days of rest- Senator Flint will be in I charge of the amendment for the Finance Com mittee and Senator Boot will be on hand to reply to such criticisms as miy be made against the constitutionality of the Treasure. It is not the purpose of the leaden to make exhaustive speeches in support • I the amendment. In fact, they are willing that a *a»te shall be tiken at once, and will content themselves with brief replies to criticism? of Senators Cummins. Borah. Bailey. Rayner and others who hay»» given notice of their purpose to attack the* amendment. An important tactical advantage in the par-*! liamentary status of the amendment was} achieved by the Finance Committee to-dar. pur suant to its purpose to accept no amendments.- The advocates of an income tax fully expected 1 that they would be able to bring about a direct vote on the Bailey-Cummins amendment be'or* the corporation tax amendment was voted on. and failing that, to offer a mm of amend ments to th^ Taft proposition. "When the* schedules and free list were finished in th« committee of the tvfcole to-day, the Ealiey- Cummins amendment was laid before the Sen at»* as the pending business. Immediately Mr. Lodge offered as a substitute for this amend ment that portion of the Payne bill which pro vides that whenever any country pays a bounty on a dutiable article imported into the United States there shall b«? levied an additional duty equal to the net amount of such bounty. Mr. Aldrich then offered the corporation tax meas ure as an amendment to the Lodge substitutes. This precludes the offering of any amendment to the corporation tax measure, it being itself; an amendment* and not amendable under th« rules. This mear.3 that the Bailey- Cunsmin* amendment cannot be considered until th« Sen ate has adopted or rejected the corporation tax amendment. With the corporation tax amend ment adopted the leaders have no doubt thaS there will be a decisive majority against any additional legislation for special taxes. SITUATION PLEASES LEADER* The leaders were elated over their success la bringing about this situation, which was care fully planned in committee more than a week: ago. It means, they say. that the corporation tax amendment will have a decisive majority when the vote is taken in committee of th« whole. Many Democratic Senators have de clared that while the corporation tax measura does mo* go as far as they wish, they will ba compelled to vote for it. It is possible, the lead ers assert, that the entire Democratic side will swing into line for the corporation tax measure, and that on the first roilcall in committee of the whole not to exceed tight votes will be cast against It. Several times in the couse of th» debate to day Mr. Aldrich let it be known that while he would vote for the corporation tax he had not changed his mint! as to the power of the new ; tariff bill to raise all revenue necessary to meet ' the expenses of the government. He would sup port the* measure as a means of defeating : the income tax. Replying t«> questions of Mr. Bailey, the Rhode Island Senator said he expected to see the law- repealed at the ■ end of two years, or at least to MS the rata greatly reduced, while some of the best features of the law were retained. Mr. Bailey wanted I Mr. Aldrich to admit that the President had i suggested the corporation tax measure as * means of defeating the enactment of an in tome tax law. He wanted to know whether the ! President had suggested the corporation tax i amendment to the President or the President : had suggested it to Mr. '•..'.. The Rhode Island Senator replied that the President had suggested- such a tax to the Republican mem bers of the Ways and Means Committee long before the tariff bill reached the Senate. Later in the day. when Mr. Cummins was dis cussing the government's fiscal affairs. Mr. Al drich said he was convinced that if the sched ules of the tariff bill as framed by the Senate in committee of the whole were approved by the Conference Committee the customs duties would be $15,000,000 more than under the Dingley law. He said this was $7,000,000 more than the esti mate made by him when he reported the bill to the Senate. He was willing to risk his reputa tion as a prophet on the statement that the pending bill would yield more than $3oO.O»N>.000 annually in customs receipts. MR. FLIXT EXPLAINS PROVISION'S. As soon as the corporation tax amendment was introduced Mr. Flint made a short explana tion of its provisions. He said the Finance Committee had given careful consideration to the question of special taxation. The decision Of the Supreme Court in the Pollock case was regarded as conclusive against any recommen dation for an income tax. while an Inheritance tax. he said, did not seem desirable because many of the states already taxed Inheritances. Some members of the committee. Mr Flint said, were opposed to any special taxation because they believed the tariff bill would provide ampl* revenue. A majority of the committee was not satisfied that the customs duties -would yield sufficient funds to maintain the government and had accepted the President's recommendation for a tax on the net earnings of corporations.
