If the railroad? can submit evidence that the increas« in freight rates asked for is just they will get the increase: if they do not make such a showing they will fail.

Washington. .Tune S. IOWA RESULTS. -The latest reports from lowa, which seem clearly to indicate the nomination of Carroll, the regular Re publican, for Governor and the renomina »ion of most of tne regular candidates for ! Congress are the occasion not only of sur '' prise but of the utmost gratification to the regular Republicans in Washington. It had been supposed in Washington that lowa was the stronghold of the insurgent move ment, and a reversal of the Cummins-Dol liver ticket there will. It is believed, break th« backbone of insurgency. Private ad vices received by the regulars throughout the day have Indicated the nomination of the regular candidate for Governor, but when the news was received this evening that "The Register and Leader" Of Dcs Moines conceded Carroll's nomination even the insurgents rave up all hope. During th«» course, of the day many condolences were extended to Senator Dolliver by his colleagues, who persisted in reminding him that had he stood by th© administration and opposed Cummins he -would have been, In the light of yesterday's developments in lowa, the greatest man in the state, in stead of the .lieutenant of Cummins in a defeated army. Colonel William P. Hep burn has all along insisted that once the Republicans of lowa, had an opportunity to express themselves squarely on the tariff they would be found to be as stanch pro tectionists as the Republicans of Pennsyl vania, and developments appear to have confirmed the predictions of the colonel. The renominatlon of Judge Smith la also the occasion of rejoicing among the regu lars, and by the same token it is a bitter disappointment to the Insurgents. Judge Smith has been going about the state de claring that Cummins would go down in history as "the greatest animal trainer the world has ever known." "Two years ago." says Judge Smith, "Dolliver was denounc ing Cummins as a traitor and biting pieces out of Garst's legs. Within that short period Cummins has trained the lowa Senator to eat out of his hands and has taught him to heel to Garst." Some of Mr Dolliver's colleagues have taken a cruel pleasure in reading this excerpt from Judge Smith's speeches to the discomfited lowan to-day. FIGHTING TAFT.— are some House insurgents who are extremely sen sitive to the charge that they are opposed to President Taft and inimical to his legislative programme, and to a majority doubtless the charge will not. apply, but It* accuracy as applied to the La Follette. disciples and certain others was abundantly demonstrated yesterday -when ten insur gents voted against the rule under which the postal saving? bank bill is to be con sidered. This bill was framed in a Re publican caucus. Abundant opportunity was afforded every Republican to express his views, and every amendment offered was put to a vote. As reported the meas ure involved no less of a compromise on the part of the regulars than of the insur gents. To have permitted further amend ments on the floor would have placed many regulars in a position that they would have been. compelled to stultify their individual convictions or else vote against the party measure, and yet ten Insurgents lined up against the rule which was de signed to protect the bill agreed upon' by a majority of their party from the on slaughts of the Democrats and those Re publicans who do not Individually approve of the Nil Of course without a rule it would be impossible -to pass the meas ure, and a vote against the rule was a vote against, not only the Republican ma lorry in the Houf*. but Rrainst President Tail and Ills legislative programme. The men who voted against the rule were Messrs. Cary. Cooper. Nelson and I, enroot, ■II '.a Follette followers; Poindexter. of Washington. ' who .hopes to be the. insur gent «-andidat» for the Senate: Norric. of Nebraska: Davis and Lindberg. of Min nesota: Wubbard. of lowa, and Gronna, of North Dakota. These Insurgents, at 'east, cannot row complain of being classed r<i against President Taft and his administra tion. ■ . -IKgL'WQltwr' ON RAILROAD BILL- Those insurgents who voted to accept the Senate railroad bill, instead of sending the measure to conference, took a step which •nin almost Inevitably tend to weaken the position Of Representative Mann and his House, wnrlslns in the- conference com rpitt<»». Th" vote to.fl(N;»pt the Senate measure constituted a vote of no confidence in the House conferred and a declaration that the Sen«te bill ,tim acceptable to a considerable number of Republican mem- p»r« of the House. In the Mm* way, th» rection of ScctJon If of the" Railroad bill passed by the. United States Senate. . The section provide?, in treating of com plaints to th- Interstate Commerce Com mission against rate increases, that, pend ing th» determination of. their reasonable ness, "the carrier shall give to each ship per, when he prepays freight. ... a bill of lading. receipt, or expense bill," which "shall show •what the charges would have. bff*n If th« Increased rate had not been charged. Such way bills shall be preserved until final determination of the question as above provided. If the Increased rate. !s r««Sji unreasonable, then the carrier shall 'ofun<J to the party paying ii the differ ence between that and the rate as It exist ed before the Increase." As the provision would work out, the lawyer tald, if the commission should de eMs that., an increase of 10 cents on some commodity was unreasonable, but should allow nine cents, the railroad would nevertheless have to refund the full ten cents to the shippers on way bills covering the entire period Intervening before, the decision was reached, probably several months. WICKERSHAM TO GOMPERS Says United States Has No Jurisdiction Over Private. Acts of Oppression. Washington, June 8. — Attorney General Wickersham has advised Samuel Compere, president of the American Federation of Labor, that the Department of Justice has no jurisdiction over the assaults, batteries and acts of oppression which arc alleged In the federation's charges again.st the United States Steel Corporation. Those acts, the Attorney General declares,, are within the jurisdiction of the separate (States in wliich tiat-y may have been committed. MEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, ,. THURSDAY. JUNE 9, 1910. threat. of certain Hous«> Republicans to ac cept the Senate bill if that reported by the conferrees is not to their liking weakens the position of the House, conferrees. : In sistence by Mr. Mann and his associates on the provisions of the House bill will inev itably be met with the argument from the conferrees of the Senate that there is no occasion for them to yield as the House stands prepared to accept the Senate bill, whether the House conferrees do so or not .Mr. Mann feels keenly the disloyalty of those whose battle he has been, chosen to fight, and regards their stand as a treach ery which menaces the success of the House conferrees. THE) K'AVAI, 81L.T,. -The conferrees on the naval bill have made a partial report, trbfcdi has been accepted by the Senate, but thrre remain to be adjusted all the more Important differences. The House confer reea are making a bitter contest against the authority granted to Secretary Meyer in effect to abolish the Bureau of Equip ment. This is. of course, a result of the antagonism of Representative Fobs to the Meyer reorganization and his would-be loyalty to the staff. j»s no logical reason can be advanced for continuing this obso lete bureau. The House also opposes the provision Inserted by the Senate which would permit the retirement of Paymaster General Rogers with the rank and pay of a retired rear admiral, this having been the Senate's price for authorizing the abolition of the Bureau of Equipment. The House is also opposed to the Senate provision for one additional torpedo boat and six addi tional torpedo "boat destroyers, although it !s peneraily recognized that there is great need for the latter type of vessels. The confrrrees lia%e returned to their task, and the final outcome cannot be predicted. TO GREET MR. ROOSEVELT.—Presi dent Taft has designated the Secretary of the Navy, the Secretary of Agriculture and his military aid, Captain Archibald W. Butt, to represent the President at the re ception of ex-President Roosevelt. »The choice of the two members of the Cabinet who were also members of the Cabinet of President Roosevelt Is regarded as a grace ful tribute to the former President by Mr. Taft. These representatives of the Presi dent will go down the Bay in a revenue cutter, accompanied by William Loeb. jr., who was secretary to the former Presi dent; and will be the first to extend a welcome to him on his return. Ther» Is obviously considerable misunderstanding regarding the course of President Taft in attending the commencement exercl-es at Yi]lano\a College on the day that Mr. Rrosevelt returns, and inferences are be ing drawn In 'obvious Ignorance of the fact that this engagement was made long before the date of Mr. Roosevelt's ar- • rival was known or even set. As haa been told in this column. Mr. Lioeb, to whom Mr. Roosevelt delegated the arrangements of all details of his reception, strongly a<l \i?^i the President not to come to New York, saying a more suitable meeting could be arranged for some later date, and it was Mr. I»eb'6 advice and not the vnianova engagement which prevented Mr Taft'l poing to New York to wel come his rr°decesFor. WICKERSHAM'S GROWTH.— A promi nent New Yorker . recently In Washington is authority for the statement that no man has grown so rapidly in public life.. as George .W. Wickereham, Attorney General in -President Ta'ft's Cabinet. This author ity asserted that Wall Street was con fident-when Mr. Wickersham was chosen for this responsible post that it would find In him a quick and ready sympathizer, but that now that It has come to a reali zation of the fact that Mr. Wlckersham is acting with a full appreciation of the fact that he has the. entire American peo ple for his clients and is showing remark able ability In the conduct of the busi ness of the nation. Wall Street's admira tion and confidence have turned to hatred and there is nothing too bitter for it to say of Mr. Wickersham. To this keen dis appointment are attributed some of the re cent attacks on th« Attorney General, but in proportion as a certain class of business men are turning against the At torney General the great mass of the people are turning to him, and since he initiated th» Injunction proceedings which brought the Western railroads .to the White House as suppliants for peace at any price, and the ultimate effect of. •which was to protect the people from a general advance In freight rates, the, conviction of the West that Mr. Taft's Attorney General Is a really great man can hardly be shaken. O. G. H. FOR RAILWAY SUPERVISION Fred D. Underwood Opposes Constant Espionage, However. B!nghamto . S. T.. June Fred D. Underwood, president of the Erie Railroad, the principal speaker at the annual dinner of the Binshamton Chamber of Commerce to-night. *poke ■ about government regula tion of public utilities and the. "legislative craze." He said in part: There should be government supervision of railways, it should M impossible for any on» to exploit railway securities, as .was done. In the early day? of their con struction,-and while people have been edu cated In th" matter of Investments to an Incomparable extent with their knowledge of the subject during: th« early history of the country, it is wise to have an authority to exercise guardianship over the issuance of bonds, stocks and other securities. It is also -wipe, to have a referee in case of dis pute, but it Is unwise and unnecessary to have an authority, be it state or federal, oxeicise a constant espionage over rail ways. Doing business by law is unhealthy. We do not require forty-six legislatures to frame, embarrassing . laws for the. re straint of railv. ays— untried legislation put out through motives of malice, ignorance and fanaticism. My opinion is that we are on the wrong track. We. are following the heathen cus tom of looking to cur rulers for help when the. help rests with ourselves. Put success ful, honest business men in ofllce, asil you will havf no bad laws. Put theorists and faddists in office, an I you will have the spectacle, as we have ha(\ It, of a thousand bills of regulation, aimed at the second larpest industry in the world, with Its at tendant panic and confusion. • TO BENEFIT NEW YORK AUTOISTS.

FILIBUSTER IN SENATE Bristow Blocks Progress of Sun dry Civil Bill. .[From Th« Tribune Bureau.} Washington, June )».— Senator Hale mad an effort to expedite the consideration of the sundry civil bill In the Senate to-day, but with comparatively little success be cause of the filibustering tactics of Senator Bristow. Mr. Hale, having heard numerous rumors of the purpose of the Insurgents to discuss certain features of th*> bill at great length, insisted that the conservation bill be laid aside and the sundry civil bill taken up. but Senator Bristow, who had promised Senator La "Follette that the measure should make no progress In the absence of the Wisconsin Senator, insisted that every word of the measure be. read instead of the captions, as Is the usual procedure, and the careful reading: of the 195 pages of the measure emptied the Senate and occupied a seemingly Interminable time. Mr. Hale then permitted it to be laid aside, and the conference report on the river and harbor bill was taken up. Sena tor Burton defended the report In a vigor ous speech. In the course of which he de clared that its only opponents could be divided into- two classes, those who were disappointed in securing appropriations In which they were especially interested and those who think any such measure In trinsically bad. The discussion of the river and harbor bill occupied the remainder of the session. Just before adjournment an attempt was made to fix a time for a vote, but without success, and Senator Hale gave notice that unless an agreement was reached promptly to-morrow whereby the report could he dis posed of in the morning hour, he would in sist on its being laid aside, and considera tion of the sundry civil bill resumed. The laying aside of the conservation bill has no special significance. Only one speech remains to be made on that measure, that of Senator Hughes, so far as known, and as it is a simple bill it. is not assumed that It will encounter difficulties In con ference. The sundry civil bill being a most complex measure it is desired to get it into conference at the earMest possible moment. » Senators A'drich and Elkins and Rep resentative Mann held two Informal meet ings on the railroad bill to-day, and as a result of their discussion it was asserted that the essential differences between the bills were not numerous and an early agreement was predicted. Early in the day B«nator Money intro duced, a resolution providing for a special committee of five Senators to investigate the forest reserves, with a view to ascer taining how much agricultural land Is contained therein, and with the further purpose of throwing such land open to en try. Inasmuch as the Secretary of Agri culture- Is eliminating such land from the reserves ac rapidly as is practicable, there reems to be little occasion for the pro posed committee.

REPLY OF RAILROAD HEADS Nothing Said at White House Conference, They Declare, About Passenger Rates. Commuters were all ears yesterday when It was s'igrgested ir. a Washington dispatch that the new commutation rates, -which •»1U be effective July l on all New York railroads, would be revoked as a result of President Taft's arrangement with railroad managers, that no rates would be Increased until the Interstate Commerce Commission had investigated the reasonableness of any proposed advance. Railroad officials stated last evening that, to the bent of their belief, the new e->m imnation rates would go into effect on the date previously announced, which, in most cases, was July L William C. Brown, president of th« New York Central Lines, one of th© three railroad men to confer with President Taft on Tuesday, said that the subject of passenger rates was not mentioned at the conference in "SVashlng 'ton, and later made this statement: "There was no signed agreement as to th© result of that conference, but a state ment was dictated by President Taft and given to the public. "If President Taft understood that pas senger rates were affected I would agree to his interpretation, but I am not making any proposition to the President. Tf he speaks to me about It 1 will reply to him. "The New York Central has raised no passenger rates over which the Interstate Commerce Commission has Jurisdiction ex cept a few on the West Shore. The rates on the Central and the Harlem dJvl^on com.p under the Jurisdiction of the Public Service Commission." "When asked if any agreement had been made to withdraw the new passenger rates, which are effective on July 1, Mr. Brown's reply was "No" A representative- of the. Pennsylvania Railroad, after communicating with the ex ecutive offices of the road In Philadelphia, said: "The conference in Washington concerned freight rates; It had nothing to do with commutation rates." James McCrea, president of the Pennsyl vania, was one of the three railroad presi dents at the conference in the White House. William H. Truesdale. president of the Ltckawanna road, said that h* had not heard of any agreement that would af fect the road's plan to raise commutation rates on June 23, and remarked: "As far as I know the new commutation rates will go into effect." An official of the Jersey Central said he did not understand that President Taft took up the subject of commutation rates at the conference. William G. Besler, vire-presl donf and . general manager of the road. stated tbat to the best of his knowledge and belief the new commutation rates would go Into effect as planned. Representatives of the Erie and the Le high Valley roads stated that there was no change in the situation and that the n«»w rates would go into effect. BREWERS FOR TEMPERANCE President of National Body Says They Will Work with Reformers. "Washington.

Hoster- of the United States Brewers' Association that, the time would come, when the brewer would be found working with th» "real and prac tical reformers" in the interest of tem perance were the salient features of the fTftietn annual convention of the brewers at the opening session to-day. Representative Boutell advocated tem perance in all things, characterizing it as "closely allied and almost akin to Ftrength." President Hoster in his 'an nual address to the five hundred delegates assembled from all parts of the country. declared that h«» had no apology to mak* for being a br*wer and that h« rerognized every brewer as a promoter of "true tem perance."

NOON SERVICE WEDNESDAYS Pulpit and Porch Also Dedicated by Rector and Assisting Clergymen. « Huntington Close, by th* sHe of Grac* Church, «H s»t apart yesterday noon In a service of consecration, to which flocked a goody number of the church's parishioner*. They stood on IkS lawn where. th« Flelsrh mann bakery stood of yore, and were gaped at through the iron palings of the fence by a luncheon hour crowd of office hoy?, stenographers and clerks which clogged the 10th street corner, although the gate to th» close was open and all were welcome within. Altogether It was a v»rr different sight from that which the* famous bread Baa afforded on this very comer on both balmy and bitter nights of former years. There was no shyness about entering In those old days. But the bread line, which still hold? its nightly ministrations a block further up across the street, Is an old established In stitution, while the pretty open air services in Huntington Close began only yesterday. So the Rev. Dr. Charles Lewis Slattery. rector of Grace Church, Is confident that before long the shyness will wear off. Dr. Slattery conducted services from the little pulpit opening off the chantry, built by Mrs. John E. Parsons in memory of her first husband, David Wolff Bishop, a for mer vestryman of Grace Church. The choir, headed by the rector and by the Rev. William D. Eddy, the Rev. George Bottome, vicar of Grace Church; the Rev. Horace Clute. the Rev. G. E. Talmage. th* Rev. C. "W. Clash and the Rev. John Good man, all of whom assisted Dr. Slattery. Is sued from the choristers* door of the close, a memorial of bis mother given by James Morris Halfenstein. They entered the close singing . the hymn beginning: "O mother dear. Jerusalem." . Another memorial gift In the close is the porch over the chantry entrance, given by Mrs. George C. Clark In memory of her son and daughter. Including these me morials. Dr. Slattery estimated yesterday that the close represented an outlay of 1500,000. The ground Itself cost $353.000.
