CONGRESS CLOSES, PROUD OF RECORD President Taft's Capacity for Leadership and Fitness for High Office Amply Proved. PARTY PLEDGES REDEEMED Republicans, United, Face Cam paign with Confidence of Vic tory — Progressive Legis lation Put on the Statute Books. [From The Tribune Bureau.] Washington. June 25.— The Hal Con gress brought its first regular session to a close at 11 o'clock this evening with a record of legislative achievement to its credit which has probably never before lK«n equalled in a single session. Once before in recent years the record of this Congress was approximated, but not equalled. That was in the fifth year of the administration of Theodore Roose velt, when the 59th Congress passed the railway rate bill, the meat inspection bill, the pure food and drugs act and numerous other meritorious measures in th* long session which ended on June 30. ]JX*L This Congress has passed a rail way rate bill of infinitely wider scope and importance; a postal savings bank bill which gives promise of great bene its, indirect as well as direct; has provided abundant funds to enable the Tariff Board to conduct an adequate in vestication of the cost of producing at horn* and abroad; has passed a state hood bill which adds two new states to th. Union and abundantly demonstrates the willingness and ability of the Repub lican party to rise above partisan con siderations to redeem its platform pieces: a conservation bill which lit erally clinches the great policy of con serving the nation's resources, of which Theodore Roosevelt was the father and William Howard ffaft is the loyal ex ponent and executor; a campaign public ity bill which is destined to remove not only dishonesty but the suspicion there of from the election of all federal offi cials, and numerous other measures of criy comparatively less importance. Set in Motion by Roosevelt. It had required five years of unwaver ing determination and unceasing energy for President Roosevelt to educate the public and Its representatives in Con grew to the importance of those great fundamental policies which have become J the bone and sinew of progressive Re- j publicanism, to bring order out of chaos . «nd harmony out of discord, but he set j in motion a process of evolution which will not cease, which has revivified the Republican party and directed its -char acteristic efficiency _and««constructive j statesmanship into channels which are i bound, in the future as in. the past, to ■ compel the admiration and support of a majority of the American people. It has required practically one year for | President Taf t to demonstrate beyond peradventure his capacity as a leader, j his remarkable fitness for the high of fice for which his party chose him, : his ability and his determination to carry on the work of his party and of his predecessor along those lines of prog ress with which he has always been in heartiest sympathy, which he stanchly I supported as he sat at the Cabinet table j cf Theodore Roosevelt, and which as President he has promoted with a sue- j cess made possible only by his excep- j tional attainments. In the first year cf j bit administration President Taft has j proved the wisdom of those who selected him to lead his party to victory— not only the victory at the polls, but the. greater victory of statesmanship, as is j attested by the legislative record of the j fist Congress. Great Difficulties Overcome. No adequate realization of the achieve ment* of the year just ended can be formed without due consideration of the difficulties which have been encountered and overcome. The beginning of the •^SBion found the leaders of the House confronted with a revolt which threat ***s to assume startling proportions. The progressive spirit of the party had cose to regard the "one man rule" of She House with intolerance and was de termined upon Its overthrow, "Cannon iEm," which, was even more of a system *fcaa a personality, was doomed; but 'tether it could be replaced with a sys tem in consonance with the spirit of tho P*ty by the peaceful methods of par !I *»fentary procedure, or must be over thrown by a revolution which would so *ar dominate the session as to preclude «E legislation other than the enactment tf tie regular supply bills, was a ques tion of the utmost moment. Those familiar with the inner work *■** of the party realize to the full that tid « situation presented to President T aft an opportunity for spectacular dis play ■which would probably have won *« him the cheers of the multitude, de *PHe the fact that it would have blocked fcoet— perhaps all— of the important leg elation en which he had set his heart.

CORNELL CREWS AGAIN SWEEP HUDSON CLEAN Dusk Veils Stirring Finish in 'Varsity Race While Thousands on Shore Cheer Winner They Do Not Know. [By T^tejeraph to The Tribune.] Poughkeepsie, X. V., June 25. — The ex pected and the unexpected happened on the Hudson this afternoon: Cornell swept the river, as the most confident of her admirers believed she would, and Pennsylvania had the crew that gave battle to the veteran and well trained oarsmen from Ithaca to the end. Rowed in the dark, with the water rough, and under conditions that could hardly have been worse, Pennsylvania suddenly jumped into fame. Por three miles, and all through that gruelling, heartrending fourth, the Pennsylvanians fought the Cornell eight, lo?ing out at the finish by less than half a length after as stirring and wonderful a spurt as any crew has ever made on the Hud son. Columbia, which has been spcond to the winners for the three preceding re gattas, was left behind at the two-mile mark, when Cornell and Pennsylvania forged to the front and fought it out to the finish. The New York crew was not outclassed; it simply did not have the brawn and muscle in the shell to carry it through the rough and heavy goins of the course far out in the middle of the stream. Syracuse and Wisconsin were left in the ruck and lost in the gloom that surrounded the crews when they BWept across the line. Race a Brilliant Duel. The race was a brilliant duel between Cornell and Pennsylvania, with the tide of fortune favoring the one and then just as quickly switching to the other. It was much the same as a race here three years ago, when Columbia had her sec ond birth and came into prominence in rowing after years of obscurity. When the two crews swept under the bridge, that monument of thp strength and weakness of all crews that row under it, there was nothing in the form dis played by either to indicate the victor. The Ithacans tried their famous spurt, but they nad once again found a crew that could match that spurt with one equally good. There was a momen tary gain for the Cornell shell, but it was momentary only, for the Red and Blue oarsmen gamely responded to the call of their coxswain and sent up their stroke. . The Pennsylvania shell kept shooting along in the same even tenor which had marked its progress all the way down the course, and for another half mile the Quakers hung to the Cornell shell with the perseverance of a bulldog; but age and weight told at the three and a half mile mark, and then the Ithacans made the bid that pulled them half a length ahead and kept them there to the finish, which was shrouded in the murk and gloom of an evening mist. Cornell Makes a Clean Sweep. It was a Cornell day from first to last. Everything- went the Ithacans' way, the four-oared race, the freshman race and the 'varsity race. Cornell supporters had all they could do to contain them selves when their crews swept down the stream to victory in the first two races. When the crews were lost in the dark ness near the finish line in the race of the day and it became impossible to dis tinguish who had won, their confidence may have wavered for a moment, but the flashing signals and bursting bombs quickly told the story of another Cornell "sweep," and the joy of the Ithacans knew no bounds. Aside from the wonderful perform ances made by the Cornell crews, the poughkeepsie regatta of 1010 will go down as a colossal piece of mismanage ment. Hat] it not been for the rowing of the crews, once they were started. Continued on eighth piiRP.

OUTING AT_ADE'S FARM Fairbanks and Beveridge Pitch Horseshoes with Studebaker. [By Telegraph to The Tribune.] Brook, Tnd., June 25.— The annual outing of the Indiana Society of Chicago to-day drew five hundred members to Hazelden Farm, the summer home of George Ade.

NEAR STANDARD OIL PLANT Stubborn Blaze Rages Within Fifty Feet of 50,000 Bar rels of Naphtha. Shortly before 9 o'clock last night, a workman employed in the plant of the National Sulphur Company, at Constable Hook, Bayonne, discovered flames burst ing from the mill. Before he could give the alarm the fire had spread across the yard and set fire to the storehouses. In these houses were stored several hundred tons of sul phur. The man rushed to a fire alarm box and sent in an alarm, and running back to the sulphur plant he tried to subdue the flames with an emergency hose. The crackling and roar of the flames by this time aroused the watchman in the plant of the Standard Oil Company, which adjoins the sulphur works. The watchman no sooner saw that the Na tional Sulphur Company's storehouses were ablaze than he realized the danger of- the flames spreading to the Standard Oil plant. Within fifty feet of where the fire was raging the Standard Oil Company had -five 'thousand barrels of naphtha, and for a long time it looked as though those barrels, with their highly explosive con tents, would ignite and blow the whole plant to pieces. In this emergency the watchman blew the whistle in the steam boiler room, which summoned all the five thousand employes to the works. The men ranged themselves at their fire posts and started in to fight the flames. With more than seventy lines of emergency hose, they played a con tinuous stream of water on the shed which housed the naphtha barrels. While they were engaged in trying to save the Standard Oil Company's plant the entire Fire Department of Bayonne rushed to the scene and played a heavy downpour of water on the flames. Warned by the glare over the waters of the Kill van Kull, six river boats rushed to the shore and trained their hose on the sulphur works, but even with this added assistance it was nut until nearly midnight that the flames were brought under control. This was largely because the flr'e fighters found it impossible to withstand close contact with the choking fumes from the sul phur. Many were overcome by the dense yellow smoke and had to be treated by ambulance surgeons and phvskians in the neighborhood. The western and northern shores of Staten Island were lined with thousands of people, attracted by the spectacular sight, while many hundreds gathered on the hills about the sulphur works and watched the work of the firemen and employes as they waged their battle with the flames. It is estimated that the damage amounted to mure than STiV.OOO.

"I am not looking for any trouble." said the man. "You had better shut up." A wild swing at the stranger was Ma honey's reply, but thp swing never landed, and the next moment Mahoney was yanked off the car by his opponent.

He was Captain Martin Handy, -.f the Delancey street station. BASEBALL UMPIRE A BRIDE Boys of School in Orange Sorry to Lose Popular Teacher. Orange, N.

PRICE FIVE CENTS. BANDITS KILL TWO IN STREETS OF LYNN One of Desperate Gang a Sui cide, Another Probably Dying and Third Captured. $5,000 IN LOOT RECOVERED Ten Thousand Persons Join in Chase for Murderers of Shoe. % Manufacturer and Police- \ man-Bystander Shot. Lynn. Mass.. June 25. — Three desper ate bandits, armed with automatic' ■ I magazine revolvers of .30 calibre, to-day shot and instantly killed Thomas A. I Landregan, a well known shoe manu [ facturer of -this city; fatally wounded Patrolman James H. Carroll and ran away with a bag containing $5,000 whict* 1 the manufacturer and policeman wera taking from a bank to the shoe factory of Welch & Landregan for the weekly payroll. The robbery, which was the most dar | ing ever perpetrated in the city, was committed on a busy thoroughfare in - the heart of the shoe manufacturing dis trict. Hardly hail the noise of the re [ volver shot and the powder smoke I cleared away before the bandits were i fleeing from an unorganized posse of tea ; thousand persons. An hour later one of the bandits was dead from a self-inflicted wound, a sec ond was in the hospital bleeding from I five bullet wounds, while the third was ■ I in the custody of the police, and Abra ; ham Lyons, an unsuspecting person, who was 'wandering through the woods, was shot in the thigh by one of the rob j bers, who mistook him for a pursuer. AH except ?T of the money that was i stolen by the robbers was recovered. May Be Jamaica Plain Outlaw. The bandits were Poles, each from twenty to twenty-five years old. It 13 believed that at least one of them was identified with the Jamaica Plain out laws who committed two murders and caused terror in that suburb of Boston, .j in July. 1008. The same bandits are also suspected of complicity in a mur der and robbery at Methuen, Mass. , The murder took place a few minutes after 9 o'clock this forenoon. Accom j panied by the policeman, according to i his custom when returning from the I bank with the money for the factory's • ! payroll. Mr. Landresjan had neared the I factory. The three robbers were wait- - i ing diagonally across the street front the bank. As Mr. Landregan and Pa : trolman Carroll started down Oxford I street the robbers followed them. Whea»- Willow street was reached the robbers had come close, up. behind their vic tims. Two of them .drew their maga zine revolvers and began firing. The manufacturer fell dead in his tracks with a bullet through his brain. He was also wounded In the left arm, and as he fell a third bullet lodged in his breast. Carroll staggered a few steps down the street, then dropped uncon scious. Seven bullets had lodged in his i body. The fatal wound was through | the left temple, the bullet having pene \ trated the brain. He died about twenty I minutes later while being taken to the hospital. Robber Escaped with Money Bag. The third robber seised the money bag and started up Oxford street. Tea bandits who had done the shooting: made a demonstration with their re volvers; waving back all those who gava evidence of any intention of interfering. Finally, these two ran after the man with the bag. By this time the pursuit was on. Shoe factory operatives, automobilists. grocers in their delivery wagons— in fact, every one who had heard of the shooting- joined in the chase. Hammers and other tools were hurled from the windows of the factories at the fleeing men, but they were not seriously in jured by the missiles. The bandits headed for High Rock, one of the most commanding heights in the city, threat ening whomsoever they met and tiring several random shots. A horse belonging to Miss Bessie- Baker, of Essex street, was being held by a groom in front of the Baker home. i As the bandits approached one of them grasped tht ' horse's bridle, and threat- : ening the groom with death if he in terfered started down the street. Miss Baker, hearing the disturbance, ran out of the house, threw her arms around the horse's neck and held on. The bandit dropped the bridle and rail. A moment or two later, when the police and other j pursuers arrived. Miss Baker was able to tell them the direction taken by the robbers, and thus aided materially la their ultimate rounding up. Teamster Has Narrow Escape. As the highwaymen turned from Ox ford street into Buffum street they met Kichard McGluo In a wagon on the corner. The bandits apparently wera as much surprised a* was McGlue. Be lieving IBM MtUlue was trying: to head them off. the robbers opened fire on him. Several shots were fired at him, and the bullets whistled uncomfortably close to his ears, but none of them hit him. This encounter was within one hundred yards of the scene of the murders. Teaching the summit of High Rock, the bandits stopped long enough to divide the stolen money. The silver was left th«?re. scattered about, while the bills were hastily divided. After leav ing the top of High Hock the men sep arated. By a circuitous route they man aged to reach a Held off Ford street. It was near this point thut Lyons was shot by one of the bandits. His wound is not serious. • In the mean time a cordon of polio* ant! citizens had been thrown around the entire section of the city. The po lice discovered one of the bandits in a thicket near Ford street. Several shuts were tired at him and the fugitive re turned the tire, Closlns hi on the cor nered man, the police called on him to surrender. His answer was to place the muzzle of his weapon against his own temple and send a bullet through his
