THE 2)AX/^ WASHIJVGTQ&
[From The Trlhun* Bureau.]
Washington, June 3.
USING ROOSEVELT— Certain ostenta
tious friend's of the former President who
are engaged in the pleasant pastime of
trying to use the colonel to further their
own ends may continue to do so with Im
punity so long as he remain? some three
thousand miles away, although even then
the cables may continue to checkmate their
little schemes, but when Mr. Roosevelt re
turns they are likely to find the pastime
not dissimilar to that occupation known
in the parlance of the day as •'monkeying
with a buzzsaw." There is probably no
man better able to protect himself from
the wiles of designing friends than ex-
President Roosevelt, and there is certainly
no one more unwilling to be made use of
than he. But even in advance of Mr.
Roosevelt's return it is not safe to exploit
for political purposes Iris formal letters and
his perfunctory acceptances of Invitations,
for he is not slow to utter denials which
leave those who have sought to create false
impressions in highly embarrassing posi
tions. '. , .
THE MADISON LETTER.— Judge Madi
son. Representative from . Kansas, received
a letter to-day from Mr. Roosevelt inviting
him to come to New York for the colonel's
return, and the insurgents are disposed to
attempt to make an much of this letter as
they sought to of the letter received room
days ago by Representative Fish. The fact
Is. however, that too many people have now
received letters from Mr. Roosevelt, in
which he expresses hope that he will see
them on the day of his return, to permit of
attaching any significance to such com
munications. If all the people to whom the
colonel has written expressing this wish
accept the invitation, if such it can be
called, no one will have any opportunity
for anything in the nature of a private con
versation with the former President on the
day of his arrival, which is. perhaps, pre
cisely what he intendß. The practice of
asking many people to meet him, calling
them all together and affording no one ot
them any opportunity to whisper in his ear
is an old one with Mr. Roosevelt. There
are many who will recall the extent to
which lie carried that practice in the early
days of his administration in the White
House. It was no uncommon thing for
members of Congress to confide to a few
friends that they had been invited to the
White House, only to find that so many
others had also been invited that the ex
pected confidential vl«»lt resolved Itself
into a rout. And when the flattered mem
bers of Congress reached the White House
they were often embar rasped by the Presi
dent's insisting on speaking in tones which
could be heard throughout the room, thus
robbing the conversation of every sem
blance of a conf dentlfil chat. It 's not dif
ficult, in the light of the number of men
■who have been urged to meet the colonel
on the day of his arrival, to foresee no In
considerable group cf self-complacent in
surgents being rapidly reduced to an ap
preciation of the fact that actually they are
merely in the "also ran" class, while in
vociferous tones th<» colonel welcomes each
to bis reception and shouts sweet nothings
at (he top of his voice.
A BUBBLE PUNCTURED.— One insur
gent bubble is punctured by to-day's cable
dispatch which explains that Colonel Roose
velt's acceptance of a dinner Invitation from
the editor of a periodical which has at
tacked President Taft and Us administra
tion antedates Mr. Roosevelt's departure
for Africa. Mr. Roosevelt was at luncheon
with this editor before he sailed from New
York, and then promised to be the editor's
guest at dinner en his return. The "sig
nificant news** that soon after his return
Mr. Roosevelt woufd be the guest of this
editor at a dinner in New York was ener
getically spread "by the insurgents in Con
gress a f^er* time ago. and every effort
was made by that portion of the press
which has espoused the anti-Tnft cause to
create the impression that this Indicated
beyond all question the cordial- sympathy
of Mr. Roosevelt with the.;-antl-Taf t move
ment. As told by to-day's cable, no sooner
dl<. Mr. Roosevelt learn of this attempt
than he punctured it by explaining the cir
cumstances of the acceptance of the invi
tation. The political perceptions of Mr.
Roosevelt are, not Flow, and when he re
turns to this country those who attempt to
make factional capital out of him will do
so at their peril..
STELLE DEATH NATURAL
Caused by Apoplexy — Accetta
Tells of Benefactions.,— r
Chicago. June 9.— Mrs. Fannie.- Surdam
Stelle. of New York, died from apoplexy,
according to the report of the Coroner after
a r>ost-mortcm examination to-day. Mrs.

The investigation by the Coroner was

NEW-YORK DULY TRIBUNE, FRIDAY. JUNE m. mift.
THE REPUBLICAN LEAGUE. Ex-
PrCcideot Roosevelt's statement that he wll
nci speak at the grand rally of the League
or Republican Clubs in New York on June
25 should cause no surprise, for the purport
of the colonel's reply to the invitation to
speak on that occasion was Riven in this
column in The Tribune of May 25. when it
stated that Mr. Roosevelt paid that he
war reluctant to make any political speech
so soon after bis arrival in this country.
It was then explained that. Inasmuch as tl>;
colonel did not absolutely refuse, a further
effort would be made when he returned, but
thr fact that he did not expect to address
the convention was clearly set forth. In
rtew of the fact that he has felt called upon
to deny that he. will speak on that occasion.
It now seems improbable that it will be pos
sible to persuade him to do so even aftir
ANOTHER TAFT POLlCY— Another otep
in the promotion of the Taft policies was
taken tn the Senate to-day when an amend
ment was added to the sundry civil hill
appropriating- $100,000 for the purpose of en
abling the Executive and the Secretary of
the Treasury to revise the methods of the
executive departments nnd adopt a modern
business system in the administration of
the affairs of the government. As has been
told in Th* Tribune, the Secretary of the
Treasury, with * very small sum whk'h he
found he could devote to this purpose, has
already effected a material savinjr In the cost
of doinsr business, snd trt«re Is every reason
to believe that a saving out of all propor
tion to the expenditure can be effected if
Congres? will consent to the investment
authorized to-day by the Senate. The final
appropriation of this sum will prove a
source of rreat gratification to the Presi
THE RAILROAD BILL. Came of the
Republican conferrees on the railroad bill
met informally again to-day, and mad;
considerable progress in the determination
ot those points on which the representative?
of both houses could agree. It is now ob
vious that the greatest difficulty will be en-
entered when an attempt Is made to agree
on the long- and short haul clause, the Sen
ate standing out strongly for its versio.i
and the House for Its provision, which close
ly approximate? « straight mileage pro
vision. The indications point strongly to
trie elimination of the provision for fed
eral supervision of railroad securities, de
spite the fact that the. President would
like to s»e it retained. It seems prob
able that this will be left for future
legislation. The provision for physical
valuation of railroads will probably ne
stricken out, and also the amendment
?rlcpted in the House providing that where
a railroad reduces a rate to meet water
competition it cannot raise it again unless
it can show materially different conditions
t.i exist. It is held that this provision will
endanger the constitutionality of the bill,
and that, moreover, it is unnecessary, as
under the provisions of Section 3 a rail
road cannot raise any rate without first
satisfying the Interstate Commerce Com
mission of the justice of the advance. There
is also a probability that the time allowed
to the Interstate Commerce Commission to
determine tfie reasonableness of a pro
posed rate will be curtailed. The Senate
till allows thirty days. 126 days and then
six months, In all about eleven months.
This is believed considerably longer than is
necessary, and it Is felt that by shortening
the neriod the commission can be made to
trork with .greater expedition.
UNCLE SAM POOR PAY-The Commit
tee on Claim? reported to the Senate, to
day a bill granting 5773.647 25 to the South
ern Pacific Railroad for the work It did to
check the Salton Sink and save, the Im
perial Valley from permanent inundation.
The amount spent for this work by the
Southern Pacific, which was carried in the
bill introduced by Senator Flint, was
$1.653.135 40. and the payment was strongly
recommended by President Roosevelt in a
special message to Congress on January
12. l? 07. Of course, the railroad cannot com
pel the United States to pay more than it
chooses for this work, which was done
without any contract, and Congress ap
pears to think it will be doing its full duty
by passing the bill reported to-day, al
though it carries' considerably less than
half the amount spent to remedy the break

DUTY ON QUEBEC PULP WOOD
Countervailing Rate of 25 Cents a
Washington. June 9. — Pulp and printing
paper manufactured from wood "cut on
crown lands in the Province of Quebec
prior to May l last is subject to the coun
tervailing duty of 25 cents a cord, or Its
equivalent of ."..". cents a ton In the manu
factured state as print paper, as provided
by the new tariff law. according to a de
cision of the Treasury Department to-day.
Like products manufactured from wood
cut on crown 'and!> in Quebec after May 1
are not subject to the countervailing duty.
The tariff law provides that if any coun
try Imposes an export duty of any kind on
wood used in the manufacture of wood
pulp, such export duty shall be added by
the Cn'ted States on importations.
Quebec recently issued "regulations re
quiring that wood rut after May 1 shall
be manufactured in that province. This, in
effect, wan regarded an a prohibition of ex
portation of wood cut after that data.
There are large Mocks of wood on hand in
Quebec lone estimate is there are 1,200.000
cards) cut prior to May 1. which can be
exported, and Ik to such the export duty
would attach. Therefore, it wa.< explained
at the Treasury Department, Quebec still
collect «» the discriminating license, fee. of
25 cents a cord on wood cut on crown lands
before May l. For this reason the addi
tional or countervailing duty has been as
sessed on the. products of the wood cut
prior to Uie date mentioned. ._. _

HONEY FOR TARIFF BOARD
Senate to Vote $250,000 Asked
SUNDRY CIVIL BILL UP
Exemption of Labor Organiza
tions from Anti-Trust Pros
[From The Tribune Bureau.]
Washington. June p.— Tariff oratory will
be on tap in the Senate to-morrow. Prac
tically all the committee amendments to
the sundry civil appropriation bill were
adopted to-day, and the measure is now
ready for amendments •to . the provision
authorizing an appropriation 0f '5250.000 to
enable the Tariff Board to ascertain facts
regarding the cost of production here and
abroad, etc. The Senate committee made
no change In this provision as It came
from the House, and its adoption in its
present form is practically assured.
Just before adjournment this afternoon
Senator- Clay gave notice that he would
move to strike out this provision. Sen
ators - Be vcridge. "Dolllver, La Follette,
Cummins and other Republicans who voted
against the Payne bill will offer a substi
tute providing for the creation of a
straight out-and-out traiff commission.
They admit there is no hope for this sub
stitute, as it Is opposed by Democrats and
Republicans alike. They desire, however,"
to make it a vehicle for speeches In de
fence of their action In voting against the
Payne bill. Many of the Republican regu
lars believe in a tariff commission. They
are satisfied, however, that the adoption
of the House provision authorizing the
Tariff Board, under the direction of the
President^- to expend $250,000 in the collec
tion of tariff data means that there will
be an exhaustive Inquiry and that accu
rate information will be gathered and col
lated which will enable Congress to deal
intelligently with the schedules in future
Before the sundry rlvll bill was tak«'i up
the Senate devoted two hours to general
debate on the conference report ori the
river and harbor bill. Speeches in oppo
sition to th* report were made by Sen
ators Stone, TVarren, Paynter and Bailey
The report was adopted, 45 to 12. Those
voting against it wer« Senators Bacon.
Bailey, Fletcher. Frazler. Hughes. John
pon, Newlands, Paynter and Stone, Demo
crats, and Senators Beveridg", Burton and,
Warner. Republicans. Senators Dolliver
and I^a Foliate failed to vote. Nine Dem
ocrats voted for the report, namely: Me-
Enery. Martin. Mon*v, Owen. Percy, Ray
ner. Simmons. Smith, of Maryland, and
Smith, of South '"^rolina.
President's Travelling Expenses.
Only two paragraphs of the sundry civil
bill caused debate. An amendment by Sen
ator Hale authorizing expenditures In th*
present fiscal year from th" $2J>,000 fund
appropriated for the travelling expenses of
the President was adopted without discu=
sie-n. There was no opposition to the
amendment appropriating $3,800.000" for the
enlargement of the Capitol grounds by the
purchase of land between the Capitol and
the Union Station.
There was a short debate when th* para
graph appropriating $250,000 for the en
forcement of the anti-trust laws was
reached. The House bill provided that no
part of this fund should be used "in the
prosecution of any organization or indi
vidual for entering Into any combination or
agreement having: in view the increasing of
wages, shortening of hours or bettering th*
conditions of labor or for any act done in
furtherance '-hereof not in itself unlawful. '
■ Senator Bacon wanted the House pro
vision retained and was supported by Sena
tor Gore. .' Senator Hevburn defended the
aetif>n of the Senate committee in striking
out the paragraph- He said he vras in fa
vor of labor organizations. but he would
not support any legislation which had for
its purpose granting immunity to any class
of citizens to violate the law. The anti
trust laws ' had been enforced against all
classes without regard to their position or
occupation. Senator Borah declared that
the House provision was meaningless.
The action of the Senate committee in
striking out the proviso was sustained. 34
to 16. Those voting In the negative w-ere
Senators Bacon. Chamberlain. Fletcher.
Frazier, Gore. Martin. Newlands. Owen.
Percy. Simmons and Smith, of South Caro
lina. Democrats, and Senators Burkett.
Dollivcx. Jones. Page and Warner, Repub
licans. Senators _McEnery and Stone were
the only Democrats who voted in the af
firmative. Senator La Follette did not
vote. . •
Just hrfore adjournment Hale of
fered an amendment apfopriating $30O.0"O
to enable the President to employ outside
accountants and business experts., to in
vestigate the departments of the govern
ment with a view to providing more ef
ficient and economical administration.
This was adopted after a short debate, in
which Senator Bacon sharply criticised the
extravagance of government officials. He
declared that Washington Is full of auto
mobiles and carriages paid for by the
government and used by officials, particu
larly army officers, for their private enjoy
ment. • .

Travellers gathered yesterday at th*> Man
hattan Beach Hotel, where the- delegates
