I place my country above my party; and I do

Cannon Bets $10 Congress Will Be
in Session August /•'.
[From The Tribune Bureau ]
Washington, July 24.— Tired and weary Taw
makers who have been seeking consolation In
the thought that the final adjournment of Con
gress is not more than one week off revived a
rude shock to-day. They heard with dismay
that no later than this afternon Shaker Can-
DOB made a bet with ex-Representative "Watson.
of Indiana- that Congress would be In session on
August t& •• The bet -was for $10, and the
Speaker did not ask odds.
This news of the bet sent a shiver of despair
among those who have bean hoping that the
tariff question Is now in Urn last stages of Bet
tlement. Representative Champ Clark, the
minority leader, who has been complaining to
all his friends that the delay In passing the
tariff bill has cost him $6,0w in cancelled
Chautauqua engagements, learned of the
Speaker's bet is a woeful silence that was fad
and pathetic. Several persons tried to learn the
rear-on for Mr. Cannon's pessimism, but the "old
man** would offer no explanation. He said It
was a secret, and that he never gambled.

France's Legal Adviser lire Says

Maurice Leon, legal adviser in this city nf the
French government, returned yesterday on the
steamer La Lorraine from a short trip to Pari.«=
Askefl about the failure of the negotiations to
list United States Steel common stock on th«

on the. part of the French government, but prin

which mad.c the propo«ition to V.r Morgan did

while it may have be-n highly deß:rable to in
troduce Steel common in Paris this should have
heed done as part of a comprehensive plan for
the listing there not only of that issue, but of
several r <t th» leading- American ft<-»:ks, particu
larly railroad Mocks.
"Now., when the bewi concerning the proposed
Introduction of Steel common leaked out ln
Paris, of course hostility to the plan was
aroused.. There were tiie French steel companies,
which did not look with favor upon the intro
duction of stocks of a foreign competitor. The
financial Institutions which' were ' not ln the
plan may a.l#n have wished to tturo* cold v.-itcr
on it. Pimply because they were not interested In
it Put co far as the govern was con*
ceraed; 'n my opinion, what induced it to defer
th» entire question to a eubflequ*-nt day wan
that it about the time when It was proposed to
ask the French public to take an Interest in a.
large American industry and to strengthen the
already brilliant prospects of that industry by
taking out of the market a considerable block
of Its common stock the United States Senate
Finance Committee was engaged In the task of
Increasing tariff schedules on French products.
"It was only natural that the French govern
ment should reserve it« ultimate decision as to
Steel common, because the introduction of Steel
common was part of a greater question which
I have already Indicated. I believe, and a great
many people in France believe, that the time
has come when the French public, which saves
two billion francs a year, which si a measure
of its yearly Investing power, should have an op
portunity to invest In American securities. I
believe, furthermore, as do a great many others,
that American Industries are bound to benefit
to a great extent from the consummation of. that
idea, because the French people do not buy
securities for speculation, but for investment,
and securities once bought in Paris are laid
away and do not see the market aealn
* It is self-evident that If. after interesting
herself in the development of Russia, her ally,
and also In the development of many other coun
tries, France were, so to speak, to take a part
ner's interest in American industries by buying
large blocks of stocks of American railroad and
industrial enterprises the industrial develop
ment of the United States would take a wonder
ful growth and America would become a for
midable competitor of England and Germany in
all the markets of the world where their manu
factured products are. traded in. . In return for
this it does not seem, unreasonable that France
should ask that her products which do not com
pete with American products should get favor
able treatment In the new tariff law. France Is
a manufacturer of articles of luxury; her wares
cannot he imitated anywhere, and there is no
Bound reason why French exports to the United
States should be interfered with. To-day there
reigns a great apprehension In France, over what
decision Congress is to take upon schedules con
cerning French products, and it would be most
unfortunate for the- future, relations of the two
countries .if - the high I protective Interests . . in
Washington should exercise their power to dam

Report To Be Completed To-day,
Only Formal Votes in Committee
Remaining To Be Taken.
IFpoiu The Tribune Bureau. 1
Washington, July — The tariff fight is prac
tical over. All that remains is the taking at*
formal votes by the conference committee on th*
adoption of the hides, lumber, iron ore, petro
leum and print paper paragraphs, and the ad
justment of certain rates in the cotton schedule
which have the effect of reducing the duties on
the lower grades. These votes will be taken at
a special meeting of the committee to-morrow
morning. The completed conference report will
be sent to the Government Printing Office to
morrow night and submitted to th'? Democratic
conferrees on Hondas-. It will go to the House
on Tuesday.
The question of whether hides shall be free or
dutiable, which was settled tentatively ; ester
day in favor of free hid*?«. was discussed at sort*
length by the «jonferrees to-day. Wen it riot
for the insistence of President Taft that ttide*
shall be placed en the free list th<=re in no doubt
that the Senators from th«> rang:** states of tt-
West would be successful In their fight Vt retain
at least half th«» present duty of 15 per cent.
It is now apparent that the Prt-sklcrt has won
his tight for free hides and fr*-e petrotettxn. 1 a
nominal duty on iron ore. a reduced duty on
lumber, against the increase' of th»? dot]T on
gloves, foi a greatly reduced duty en coal, for a
material reduction from th« Hot;?! rat*; ob
hosiery ami for! considerable reductions in th«»
cotton schedule, rppecially for th« lower grade*
which ary tyMisjht in larg*. quantities by person*
of very moderate means.
A last desperate effort was ntauje t-.-nis^t t>>-
Scr.ator Curnnrs tv persuade the President to
consent to the retention of the Senate dury.oC

Senate Republican conferrots discussed this
question with the President. When th«*y left
the White House at midnight tbey said no
agreement had been rea-:h?d a.^ to tlr- -rate on
ore. but aL-knowlodged thr:t the doty 0f. 25 cittfcJ
would not b«> satisfactory t<» the Pr^sidf-nt. Thft
hides question was as^i^ Wjtiewed to-night, but
no change from the dec's n to put them t>n tb*»
free list was seriously pro|«.*e<L .
The President did not approve unqualifiedly
the agreement reached yesterday by the cou
ferrees and announced in The Tribune this
morning. Instead, he urged Mr. Farneto mak *
a still further effort to obtain additions! reduc
tions in the cotton schedule to offset the con
cessions he tthe President) was making on
those raw materials which he recommended
should be placed on the free list. Mr. Payne
had been •workin? throughout the morning ses

not add to the comfort ot Mr Warren. Senator
Clark. Mr. Warren's* colleague, obtained a ma
terial concession from th« President's demand
for free coal, which further augmented tie dis
comfiture of the senior Senator from Wyoming.
Early in the afternoon the conferrees disposes)
of the drawback provision, which has been mak
ing them some trouble, and only th« cottP«
schedule remained, each side contesting every
inch of the ground, or rather every traction of m
per cent, on that. __
It is generally doubted if there will be mor«
than five or six Republican votes against the.
conference report. It is regarded as certain that
Senators Bristol. Clapp, La Follette and Nelson
will oppose it. Mr. Nelson served notice to-day
that be could be counted against the bill unless
the duty on lumber was reduced, to the House)
rate of $1 a thousand feet. The leaders did. not
expect the vote of the Minnesota Senator, for ha
has been a consistent low tariff advocate for
many years. They were somewhat disturbed,
however, lest he should become so aroused on
the lumber question that he. would try to or
ganize the Minnesota members of the House to
oppose the report. If he should succeed in sep
arating from the House organization such, prom
inent and active* Representatives asTawceyaad
Stevens there would be serious troUole ahead
for Speaker Cannon and his lieutenants.
Senator Clapp Is also outside the breastworks,
having taken such umbrage at the -liminatlon,
at the instance of the President, of his holding?
company amendment to rhe corporation tax that
he is counted as certain to vot* against th*
adoption of the conference report? ' r^ajeadere
