Railroad in Turkey. Washington, June 26.— Prospects of the Ottoman-American Development Company, of New York City procuring the Turkish concession for the construction of a 51,500,000 railroad hi Asia Minor are looming up more brightly at the State Department. "!■;■■«• reply of the German government to the United States, which inquired why the Gerojans objected to the concession, is thought to have been responsible for this optimist view of the subject. The German government expressed itself as generally favorable to American enter prise in Turkey but, unlike Russia, Italy, France and Great Britain, limited her ap proval to spheres where the Americans would not affect her interests adversely. The State Department is expected to take the position now that the proposed railroad from a port on the Mediterranean— Suedie —to the city of Diarbekir and thence to Kitlas and Van, a distance of 1.300 miles. will not interfere with German interests in Turkey, either as to the Bagdad rail road concession to Germans or the mining law of 1907. It is understood that the opposition on the part of the German government has occasioned considerable surprise to the State Department, especially in view of Germany's earnest advocacy of an "open door" in Morocco, Persia . and In the Far East. Coming immediately after the co operation of Germany and the United States in regard to the Chinese loan, which has recently '"been so conspicuously cordial. it is said to be considered strange that it should be Germany and not Great Britain, Prance, Russia or Italy that is said to be opposing the creation of an American in terest in the Turkish Empire.

CAREFUL CENSUS OF INDIANS Belief That All Red Men Will Be Citi zens at the Next Count. Washington, June 26.— The enumeration of the Indian population will be a feature of the thirteenth decennial census of the United States, It is calculated by officials of the Census Bureau that ten years hence ali tho "red men will have become citizens, and consequently this is the last time the census will snow their tribal relations. For t^iis reason It has peculiar interest, and extreme precautions, it is said, were taken to obtain an accurate count and all the Inform possible regarding their condition. When the Census Ofltoe placed its enu merators in the Held among the Indians it stationed about twenty special agents in the Indian country, who were versed in the affairs of the red men, to oversee the work of the enumerators. The returns arc being Homely scrutinised by these agents, and it it believed that an especially accurate rec ord it ill be obtained.

AMES ATTACKS LODGE I Say State Congressman An nounces Senate Candidacy. A LITERARY CURIOSITY Sacrifice on Altar of Public Duty to Fight "Boss and His ! Political Machine." i ■ -. [From The Tribune Bureau.] f : Washington, June 26.— Representative Butler Ames, of Massachusetts, has Issued an announcement of his candidacy for the Senate, to succeed Henry Cabot Lodge, which is such an entertaining contribution to political literature, such' an exquisite literary gem. that it is here presented for the delectation of readers of The Tribune precisely as it comes from the pen of the Massachusetts statesman, without the dot ting of an i or the crossing: of a t. To ! gain a really adequate appreciation of the '' monstrosity of the political conditions which 1 have moved Mi. Ames to this out burst of jierfervid indignation it may bo ■well In advance to 'recall the incidents con nected with the Republican rump conven tion in Florida which nominated delegates instructed to vote for Senator Foraker, which delegates were rejected by the na tional committee and replaced by the duly elected delegates, who had been instructed to vote for Mr. Tafi. When the case was taken up by the national committee in Chicago it was found that those who had voted for the* Foraker delegates had gained j access to the convention hall by the use of | forged ticket?, and J. Is". Stripling, one of the Foraker delegates to the national con vention, testified that the forged tickets were delivered to him by Representative Ames, as was related at the time in The Tribune of June 7, 190 S. But, of course, that was in Florida, and Mr. Ames doubt less feared that great enemy of the peo ple, William Howard Taft, might be nomi nated and duly elected. Mr. Ames's Statement. Mr. Ames's highly interesting and im aginative statement is as follows: "Mr. Ames now makes the official an nouncement of his candidacy for the Untied States Senate, having tried in vain to in duce some one else to lead the fight again*'. 'Boss" Lodge and his political machine. "This machine, backed by all the largo corporations and by all the state and fed eral patronage at his command, has served for many years as a ready and efficient tool to crush all political ambitions, endeavors or opinions not sanctioned by Mr. Lodge "His orders have gone out to crush not only to suit his own political ends, but also to advance the selfish financial schemes of the large railroad*, banking and manufact uring interests he serves in the halls of Congress as well as in the Massachusetts Legislature. "His machine, controlling for so mam* years the political destinies of th* state, has been connected with, lias been a party to and has grown up with the lobby that plies its trade at the State House. "The well recognized leader of the lobby has been a member of the State Central Committee far more than a. decade. In that committee be has been a leader and his word was law, for was a.nd is he not one of Mr. Judge's closest political friends ar>d advisers? "This man was driven from the Repub lican State Central Committee last fall by outraged public sentiment, and though still the head of the lobby has been kept away from thf State House this year for appear ances' sake, and has done his work through lieutenant?. His attendance at the Stat-3 House during past years was so regular that his absence this year has been the cause of 'almost daily comment. "It is of interest to know that in the midst of th*> successful campaign waged' in Haverhill last fall against the Siame,sin,f of the state political machine and the lobby Mr. Lodge was entertained at this man's borne in that city. - .'■-:...' "That ;< member of the State Central ■Republican Committee, recognized as one. of the mouthpieces of Mr. I-odge and hav ing at his back the party machine, made his livelihood by lobbying in the Massa chusetts Legislature for the large corpora tions, and at the satne time carrying, out the mandates of the machine, is a com mentary on the machine and the ideals in politics of Mr. Lodge. "For some unfortunate, horn to poverty and without pride of race or tradition of family, and who. without education in right or wrong, takes or tries to take for bia own purposes mat which does not be long to him — for such a person we can have only sympathy and sorrow. "Born to Wealth and Family Pride." •'But one born to wealth and family pride, surrounded by standards of educa tion and high ideals, who takes or tries to lake for a political ally or friend that which, belongs, to his country deserves no honor or consideration (ran the people he has tried to dispossess. "And for Mr. Lodpe, the chosen repre sentative of Massachusetts in the Senate ot the United States, to try by craftily worded amendment and later by attempt ed influence on the Secretary of the Navy to secure the purchase of two colliers not then needed or asked for by the navy, at a prie-M away in excess of that at which ir'>re desirable boats were bought, in or der to render cringing service to some i:uston capitalists so that they Blight ; :and by him with their wealth and power and political influence at a time like this, was to take what belonged to the country for his political alii*'?, and reflects honor neither upon himself nor on the State. "While he is conscious of his own ahort oomings, no one rec-ognize.s more quickly than does Mr. Ante? the talents possessed by Air. Lodge — a scholar, it historian, an author of wide and varied experience, and whose very length of service ought, under ordinary circumstances, to be a bar to liis removal. "To a stranger to the state, and to one not conversant with its j>olitical affairs and unfamiliar with his failings, it might be hard to understand the public state of mind which has long since been tirerl of and has been outraged by his political manipula tions. "With all his gifts and opportunities, he lias made such use of them that his eon tlnuanco in public life depends, not upon his service to the people of his state but to a political machine. This machine is used as a club for the individual of independent thought and action, while it serves as a willing tool to those of wealth, of influence and of power seeking undue favors. "Had he made his successes depend upon principles and not on politics his position to-day would be unassailable. "The political boss and manipulator of the state, unwilling to follow the policy of 'live and let live,' he has used his great power to assassinate these who dared differ in opinion or principle. It is reported that in his present extremity, fearing to seek re election on his long public record in Con gress and in the state, his one hope Is that Mr. Roosevelt may create new confidence in his behalf by speaking 'or him as an old friend. Calls Moral Teachings Violated. "It is hard to believe that the «-.x-Preel dent would lent! himself to the political support of one, even though a friend, who ha& consistently violated in this state all i he moral teachings of which he is the f;rf;«: ' exponent . "The public state of mind in ilia state to day i.~ the remit, not of what has been said against Mr. l>KJge— for no one ball dared to aiuiik him— but of eii.cn. in>li vWual's own Interpretation •£ Ilia acts and BUTLER AMES. Who has announced his candidacy to suc ceed Senator Lodge in a characteristic statement. utterances and of the conduct of the ma chine of which he is the moving force. "The people of the state will realize In such a case that the ex-President could not have the intimate knowledge, acquired through sorrowful experience and pos sessed by each citizen of Massachusetts, and so would appreciate that his support of Mr. Lodge was out of keeping with the facts. "Massachusetts will be fully able to judge and decide for herself from an experience of some twenty years. "The L,odgo machine .md the lobby worked in the Senate again this year to successfully defeat the direct primary bill, which had passed the House. "To the support or defeat of this bill I did not lift so much as a finger, though its passage would have been to my political ad vantage. "With direct primaries it is universally admitted that Mr. Lodge would have no possible chance of re-election. "The issue of the coming campaign will be IyOdgeism and political misrule, with the open connivance of the machine-lobby with large financial interests to control elections and legislative action. "It fs desirable to call the attention of the voters of Massachusetts to the fact that by compelling every candidate for the com ing Legislature to declare hlmso'f un equivocally for Mr. Ames or for Mr. Lodge an opportunity will thereby bo given for an expression by the people of their desira at the polls. "The Lodge machine will make every effort to prevent the pledging of candi dates, in the belief thai unpledged candi dates can be controlled by the machine or by money or by corporation influence. To prevent this Mr. Ames will use every en deavor to compel candidates in every dis trict to pledge themselves on this issue, and to this end asks the co-operation of every voter who, " believing in fair play, political freedom and independent thought, desires an end of the present political misrule, with its machine-lobby control.. . "The defeat of Mr. T_<o.3g<s and the ter mination of. this machine will tend more than anything else to party success, not. only in tire state, but in the nation. It will restore confidence in Republican man agement by divorcing the legislative lobby from the political machino an 4 .by defeat ing a public official who has so long served the private interests rather than the public good." MURDOCK CLAIMS MUCH Insurgents, He Says, Responsible for Good Legislation. Washington, June L't».— The insurgents in the House of Representatives were re sponsible for much of the important legis lation passed during the session of Con gress just closed, according to Representa tive Murdock, of Kansas, one of the lead ers of the band. Tiie railroad rate bill and the rest of the vital legislation passed was "effective and responsive to public wi!!," he said to-night. "Just in proportion a.s the Speaker's power was broken, his lieuten ants overborne and his machine scat tered." Mr. Murdock's declaration to-day was in reply to that made by Speaker Oifnnon last night just before Congress adjourned, in wliich the Speaker said that "the changes of rules have contributed to the pleasure and perhaps the power of some individuals in the House." but the current of legislation itself hafl moved on as usual, with little disturbance on account of a few new methods, and with little advantage there from. "In hi? formal statement." said Mr. Mur docii, "Speaker Cannon took pains to say that the constructive legislation of this Congress was the best in thirty years. lie did not acknowledKf-. as he should, that it was the activity of those called insurgents in the House which toadied all the major measure* passed with a vitality thai similar legislation has not had for yean-. "The constructive legislation passed at this* .session has been respttnsive to the popular desire, atod the reason for it is that the manacles have be^n falling from the members of the House. "The tendency there since last Decem ber lias been toward free government. Tyranny in committees, brutal doture in the. House, arrogance in the chair have been under constant fire. The tendency has been toward free government in the House, legislation has become more and more the work of the whole membership serving the whole nation, and less and leas the work of a political ring serving its own seliish purposes, it was the chal lenge to Cannon ami Cannonlsm that made the legislation what it Is, and every un prejudiced member of Congress knows it."

Washington, June Business men, es pecially those who are engaged in malting loans which they attempt to collect through the mails, should bo careful about placing "dunning" notices on the face of their let ters containing bills which they are impa tient to collect, because the Postofliee De partment has just ruled that such matter is un mail able under thu provisions of the postal laws and regulations.

RUNS ON TAFT RECORD Senator Carter Praises Admin istration for Achievements. HE SEEKS A RE-ELECTION Campaign in Montana To Be Conducted on Strictly "Stand - Pat" Platform. Helena, Mont., June 26.— Praising Presi dent Taft as one of the "broadest, kindliest and ablest men" the White House has ever known, indorsing the recent tariff bill as a measure which redeems the party pledge find bitterly denouncing insurgency, Thomas H. Carter has begun his campaign for re-election to the United States Senate from Montana. Senator Carter is the first Western Senator to come out flatfootedly on a "stand-pat" platform, and his an nouncement has created a stir throughout the mountain states. In stating his views concerning the in surgents, in his commendation of the Presi dent and of the work of the present Con gress, Senator Carter announces unequi'vo cably his willingness and determination to stand for re-election on the Taft record. The Senator announced his platform in a letter which lias just been received by tlve State Central Committee of the Republican party of Montana. Throughout the state the letter Is con sidered a remarkable document. There is practically do insurgency in the state, and with Senator Carter running on a strictly Taft "stand-pat" platform the fall cam paign, according to present Indications, will be fought out on straight party lines. Sen ator Carter say 3Jn his letter: Comparative degrees of prosperity may readily be made to excite more commotion than comparative degrees of adversity. Tben memory is treacherous. As President Harrison well said: "OUI experience is not instructive; each xeneraTiqn must have its own." Taking advantage of the truth wrapped up in this saying. It Has seemed wise to individual Republicans here and there throughout the country to command temporary notice by blaming the old party. not for making bad times, but for falling to make good times better. Their contention is that thousands of items affecting every part of our common country are not balanced up in the tariff bill recently passed in a perfectly equitable and correctly scientific way. They omit to mention the fact that a tariff which seems possessed of all the virtues in one section is regarded as possessing all the vices in Another section of the country. No better illustration of the fallacy of this view can be furnished than that supplied by th" wool schedule, which was continued in the late tariff bill In substantially the same phrase ology as it appeared in the Dingily tariff bill We of Montana, realizing that the protection of some sixty million dollars worth of our property hangs upon the wool schedule, regard the schedule as fair, equi table and necess*ry. whereas the owner or the woollen mill iv New Kngl.ind l^ok* upon the duty as Indefensible. The case here presented might be definitely extended throughout the thousands of items em braced In the schedule Insurgents Scored. Those who quibble over the details and adjustments fail to mention that the duty on all the great products of th« mighty ste«»l manufacturing plants of the country was practically reduced •mo-half, and that such increases as were made placed toe burden, if burden there be, upon those no buy the luxuries, rather than ljpqn tlx>s<> who buy the necesaries of life. This m"tJ od of magnifying the details into monstrous proportions and overlooking broad, genera principles has given a fleeting tenure to so called Insurgency. JU^ml Thr. insurgents met universal Democrats approval and their special pleading occa sionally disturbed the confidence of some Republicans: but time, the settler dreg» and the master healer of disorders. Y&a been performing Its customary work. The present administration not only attempted, in good faith and with pronounced success, to redeem the party pledge to revise the tariff, but has likewise sought, with re markable* zeal and flde'ity, to redeem every other outstanding pledge. After reciting some of th© achievements of the present Congress— the railroad bilL the postal savings bank bill, the statehood measure and others— Senator Carter con tinues: Jn the presence of these conditions the people of lowa, at a recent primary elec tion, marched to the polls of their own voli tion and placed the seal of their disap proval upon Mr. Cummins and his scheme of insurgency. _*t__ The defeat of cummins was an assert. on of the plain common sense of the Republi cans of lowa. This was a case of a cap tivating leader entering the Held practically unopposed by any one approaching his capacity, and meeting a pronounced defeat on the merits of his appeal, which was an- Kwered by the ballots of the citizens who had figured the thing out for themselves. The flood tide of insurgency was turned back by the organized voters, led only by their own intelligent comprehension of the situation. The peoole on their own account stood by and guarded the old party in that contest. Farmers Control Banks. The Democrats can only profit by Re publican betrayal of the Republican cause. They have no other hope on earth thun that which they gain through hope for treason in the Republican camp. How can a Democrat gro out and persuade a farmer to vote the Democratic ticket when the farmer knows that during the last Demo cratic administration a 250-pound hog could Yk- exchanged for only 150 pounds of granti lated sugar, whereas a hog of the same freight to-day will bring 500 pounds of the same kind of sugar? And the same comparison can be marie with calico and woollen goods and every thing a farmer has to buy. Fifteen years ago the banks controlled the farmers; to day the farmers control the banks, and these changes have come to pass under the reign of the Republican party. It seems to me the only question is whether we can keep our heads and avoid being made dizzy by the force and power of the prog rws" being made. to .speaking of President Taft Senator Carter says: "The national administration ts presided over by one of the broadest, kindliest and ablest men the Presidential chair has ever known. Our old friend Theodore Roosevelt made no mistake when he unqualifiedly commended "William H. Taft to the Amer ican people. Not only Republicans but men of all parties may well be proud of the President of the United States." LOSING TRADE WITH JAPAN A Drop of Over $7,000,000 — Cotton Situation a Cause. Washington, June 2«. — Imports to Japan from America and Europe In the first three months of the year 1910 showed a marked decline ov«T the corresponding periods in 1908 and 1909. according to flfjpoTOl In possession of the Department of Com merce and Labor. In the same period Japan's imports from Asia and Oceania in creased. ■ Japan's American imports fell from $14, 688,006 in the tirst three months of 1908 to $7,000,000 in the same period of this year; those from Europe fell from $25,;*0,000 in the first quarter of 1908 to $1ti.250.000 in 1910. Japan's imports from Asia and Oceania, on the other band. Increased Jrom $23,000,000 in the 1908 period to $33, 000, W0 in the 1910 period. The falling off of American imports is re ported to be largely due to the cotton situ ation. Japan buying freely of American cot ton when pricen are low, but when prteoj are high, as has been the eat>e In the lust year or two, Japan turns to other parts of the world for cotton.

Speaker Cannon at Office. The Capitol was practically deserted to day. Speaker Cannon and Representative Mann Witt at their offices for several hours shortly after noon. In his closing speech last night "Uncle Joe" said he would go home "putting behind me without malice the contests through which the House has passed." In this spirit of meek ness and good will Mr. Cannon attended what he called "prayer meeting" this morning, and when he reached the Capi tol he looked as fresh as a daiay. and -"aid he felt like a boy out of school. Mr. Cannon and his daughter Helen will start this week for Danville. The Speak er's campaign itinerary ia now being made up.

Kan- Most of the Cabinet officers will leave Washington in the course of the next ten days. Postmaster General Hitchcock will be here a month or so longer, for on him. will fall the burden of preparing for the estab lishment of postal savings banks. Mr. Hitchcock will be unusually busy for the next fen* days, as most of the Senators and Representatives stll» in Washington desire to hare a word with him regarding postoffice appointments whicn have be?n held up awaiting adjournment. Of the sixty-seven nominations not confirmed by th© Senate fifty-four re postmasters, and in many instances It Is probable recess, ap pointments will be made. PostoffTce Swamped with Mail. The receiving division of the Washington city postoffice was swamped to-day with of ficial mall of departing members of Con gress. Four bis mail wagons made many trips to and from the Senate and House office buildings gathering up boxes and bag?. Tons of printed matter, mostly speeches, are going forward to anxious con stituents for perusal before the primaries. The garden seed season is at an end, but in its place has come the season of speeches and farmers' bulletin?. Some members of Congress have written personal letters to every, voter in their district, while others have Bent or are sending seeds, bulletins or speeches to every voter. All this matter goes through the mails free of charge under the franks of Senators and Repre sentatives. . . One of the insurgents from Wisconsin, who is facing a hard fight in the approach ing primary, flooded his district with printed matter. Some of this matter is twenty years old and will be useful for starting fires in many Wisconsin homes. The Wisconsin Representative heard that the Committee on Disposition of Useless Executive Papers had ordered the destruc tion of a large assortment of public docu ments which had been accumulating for years in tho basement of the Capitol. He put in a claim for these documents, and in a few days had a force of clerks sending them to Wisconsin. They relate to rivers in Florida, sheep grazing in Texas, the water supply of Nevada and other subjects which breath the spirit of Insurgency and let the voters back home know their Repre sentative is "on Cha Job," and hopes to b« able to return to tht» 62d Congress.

HOPE OF TREASURY SURPLUS All Depends on Corporation Tax Receipts — Reduction of - Expenditures. Washington. June 25. — Four days rcuyj,, of the government's fiscal year, trtilch end 3 j with the close of business on June 8a Un i completed figures and estimates available at # this time, or rather as of the dats ©; yesterday's "Dally Treasury Statement,' which included" Friday's business, lead Sec. retary - MacVoagh of the Treasury Depart ment to express himself as well «aHf|p<t ■with the operations of Ms department ftp ' the fiscal year nou- cloafne:. Mr. JlacVeagh regards the new tariff lav as having justified itself as a revenue pro ducer; internal revenue receipts have ex- * ceeded the estimates by approximately $10,000,000. and the year promises to ewt showing possibly a surplus In the ordinary receipts and expenditures, or splitting near ly even, instead of show a. deficit of $j^. 000,000. as was predicted. A larger lacorss and reduced government exp*3idltUTes an* given by Treasury bfßcials as contribnttng causes for the good showing. During the year the j?oTernm/-nt has ex pended on the Panama Canal $33,919.9*9 This has been a drain on the regular work- Ing cash balance, there being no ttpecial fund from which payments for this pur pose can be made. Congress has author ized the Issue of bonds to meet canal con struction expenditures, and Mr. MacVeagh thinks the cost of construction should b<» shared by posterity, which will.' after all, get the benefit. Refused to Graduate Tax. He has objected, however, to the "j«i» on which the law provides tie bond:* shall be issued. If at 3 per cent, as now-, pro posed, the Secretary .believes they would have a much better national bank circu lation privilege than the outstanding 2 per cents, and their Issue would therefore con stitute a- discrimination against the 2s. Congress refused to graduate the tax on national bank circulation secured by bondj, as recommended by the Secretary, and Oil bonds remain unissued. . The amount of Panama Ss authorized but not Issued ag gregates $290,565,006.

Customs receir»t« this year have been $325*62,242, the "tH+mmf* estimate for the year being J3X,fl(»,ofiO. Now the prediction Is they will rvach more than $330,000. thus falling below the estimates. Reduction of Expenditures. There has been a material reduction from the estimates in expenditures In the efvn. war and naval establisrircents* and a de crease of J7,000,000 #in th«i estimated postal deficiency. Whether mi not there will b« an actual surplus at th ? end of th« year, officials say. depends at* the amount of corporation tax money received. Secretary MacVeagh estimated it would reach $15, 000,000. The prospects are otherwise.
