TRUST PROGRAMME
STARTS IN SENATE
Bills Passed by House,
However, To Be Amend?
ed in Many Ways.
MEASURES REFERRED
WITHOUT CONFLICT
Republican Member Deprecates
Forcing Work on "a Worn Con.
gress" at This Time.
(From Th?- Tribune Bureau.]
Washington, June 6.?Two important
St4 pa in th.' matter of trust legislation
wen- taken to-day. The interstate Com
?mice Committee ordered a favorable re?
port on the NewlandS substitute for the
trade commission bill drafted by s ?MM
commltt?*? of th.' interstate Commerce
Commission. Tho aubatltute eliminates |
Ute holding company and Interlocking di?
rectorate features of the sub-committee's
draft.
The other important step was the re?- ?
ert-nce to the Clayton bill supplement?
ing the Sherman anti-trust law to the '
Senate Judiciary committee when it came
over from the House to-day, and the ref?
erente of lbs t'ovington and Rayburn
bills, providing for a trade commission
and for the regulation of the stock and
bond issues of railroads and other com?
mon carriers to the Interstate Commerc?
CommitLt.
A conflict over th?* reference of these
bills had been predicted, but none oc?
curred. Senator Overman, acting chair?
man of the Judiciary Committee, said
later that his committee would take up
the Clayton bill, which, among other
thing's, prohibits interlocking directorates
and holding companies, as soon as pos?
sible. He added that he hoped and ex
ptvted that the bill would bo passed
and become a law at the present session.
Programms To Be Pushed.
This stat'.-mrnt by Senator Overman is
taken to indicate that the Senate Domo- ?
erotic loaders are getting In line to put
through the administration's trust legisla?
tion programme, though the Senate prob- !
ably will amend in many respects the j
bills as passed by the House.
Senator NewlandS, chairman of the
Interstate Commerce Committee, gave
Otrf S statement in regard to the trade !
commlaslon bill aa follows:
"The committee determined to-day to
.rate the trade commission from the \
supplemental legislation refined to. and
have authorised m? to present an amend?
ment in the nature of a BObstltOtS for ,
my original bill, providing for a trade |
commission. The committee concluded to
name the trtt.de commlaslon the 'Federal
Tra?le ? 'ommlssion' Instead of the 'Inter?
state Trade Commission' In order clearly
to distinguish it from the Interstate Com?
merce Commlaslon.
?'The fear that has been expressed that !
this hill will inaugurate a wholesale In
<]u?siti<?n of the HO.MO corporatiotui of the
country is groundless. Power to Investi?
gate is given with reference to such cor- ?
poratloiis as the commission may desig?
nate. This power is substantially tbe
as la now pneaeased by the Bureau
of Corporations, and certainly the powers
of that bureau have not been exercised
in such a way as to anoy the honest bual
netM <?f the country. Reports are re
qulrt'l only from such corporations or
classes of corj orations as the commission
may designate. The range of this re?
quirement will be comparatively mod?
erate.
Supplemental Legislation.
"The committee will continue its con?
sideration of supplemental legislation re?
garding interlocking directorates, holding
companies, railway securities, etc., an?!
its action may be on the line of amend?
ments to the trade commission bill or of
separate legislation."
?enator Newlanda announced that he
would ask to have the ?trade commission
bill ?made the urjfinis,h?-d business of the
Senate as soon as the Panama Canal tollB
repeal bill had been disposed of. If h*
succeeds, the bill will come up Imme?
diately for discussion, and even the most
optimistic ?Senators seo a long debate
ahead for it. There Is a strong sentiment
to pass merely the trade commission bill
and adjourn, the belief being that sucn
leglalatlon Is auflclen* for the presen;.
Whether this spirit will prevail is a
matter for speculation.
Although no record voto was taken in
the Commerce Commission to-day, a?r?
erai Senators are known to have been
opposed to any motion to put any sort of
trust legislation before th.- Senate at this
time. Senator I'.randagee ,a Republican
member of the committee, to-night Issued
?i stutement, saying:
"In view of tho widespread business de
presslon and the apprehension which pre?
vails In commercial an? I financial centres,
I regard the proJe?Mion of these r-ucstion-?
concerning the further inspection and
regulation of business by the federal gov?
ernment Into the Congressional arena at
this time as a ?grave mistake
Rush of Schemes Foreseen.
"The mensure creating this commlssi ??
will Serve as g vehicle upon which to
load all the oth.r propositions granting
further regulatory and inquisitorial pow?
ers to the various federal ? omiriission-.
"1 do not think that a worn and exas?
perated Congress Which lias been in c??n.
tinuoii- aeaalon for more than a year
should be forced to ent?r upon the discus?
sion of all th?s?- Intricate and controvert?
ed questions in midsunvner on he eve of
a ration-wide .?olitical campaign.
' 1 do not think the agitation and debate
will tend to restore confidence to the dis?
tracted and dr ?oping business of the
?oiii.try. I think the best service Congress
can render is '?? pass tho .ppropriatlon
bills and adjourn and let the country have
a rest and If possible ecover its own
wit?. "

NO CHANCE FOR BILL
WITHOUT CONCESSION
Simmons Gets Norris's Agreement
to Withdraw Amendment and
Accept Substitute.
[From The Tribune Bureau]
Washington. June 8.?Proponents of the
Panama ('anal tolls repeal bill in the
Senate have reached the conclusion that
the bill cannot pass without an amend?
ment specifically stating that the action
of Congress Is not to be taken as waiving
the right of the United Stutes to exempt
American vessels of commerce from the
payment of tolls through the Canal. Hav?
ing reached that conclusion Senator Sim?
mons, of North Carolina, who has been
leading the flght for repeal for the Pr?si?
dent ir. the Senate, and other administra?
tion Benatora decided that thin amend?
ment had better come from one of the
Democratic leaders than from a Repub?
lican.
The parliamentary situation calls for a
v..*.- first on an amendment to the bill
offered by Senator Xorrls, of Nebraska,
which provides that the passage of the
bill shall not be construed as a waiver of
the right of the United States to exempt
American coastwise vessels from the pay?
ment of toll?, or to reduce the tolls on
those vessels. Henator Simmon.?, utter
drawing up a substitute amendment for
that offer?-?! by him In committee and
adopted by th?' cnnmiitt.-e merely provid
111? that the United States waived no
rlghl under anytreaty, submitted his sub?
stitute to Senator Norris to-night and ob?
tain??! I??1? a.-reena'?t to withdraw the
, Norris amendment ?Irfavor of the second
| Simmons amendment. This second Hlm
| nions amendment is as follows:
"That the paasaga ?if tins at shall not j
j he. construed or held as a waver or re
! linqulshmcnt of any right that the United
Sutes may have under the treaty with
Oreat Britain ratified the isth of Xu
! vember, 1M1, or otherwise, to exempt
' the vens'ls of the United States or Its
! citizens Irom the payment of tolls for
j tho passaga through sui?i ?anal, or aa
: in any way waiving, impairing or af
|facting any right of the United States
under -said treaty or othararlse with
raapect to the sovereicnty over the own
j ership, control and management of said
?anal, and the regulation of the eon
j ditions or chargea of Irslllc through
1 the tame."
A ?final vote on the repeal Mil is not
! ?ntpected ?before Tuesday or Wednesday.
Palling to make any progress toward a
1 conclusion of the debate to-night the
i Senate gave over its consid?ration of
t ! >? repeal bill lute this afternoon and
took Op the regular .alendar.
An effort may !>?? made after the blU
is disposed of to press a resolution to
arbitrate the Panama, tolls exemption
question with Great liritain.
Senator Hitchcock, Democratic col
league Of Senator N'orris, announced
1 early in the day that he. would vote for
the Norris .substitute. "I shall favor any
amendment <>i id." import wblcb will at?
tach to this bill a declaration that u>
passage shall not be construed as a sur
r'-nder of the American right to dis
?ririiinate in favor of American vessels
i In the use of the Panama ('anal,'' he said.
j "I shouhl be willing to go even further,
I and favor a apOCtflc declaration leaflirm
I ing and asserting that right because that
would expresa my own 6onvt?ctiona In the
matter "

light of indorsing his reasons and might

abandoning Its former interpretation of
the treaty and assenting to the interpre?

"I am not trilling to do that I be?

FEARS EXCESS OF
POWER IN CONGRESS
Southern Railway Counsel
Opposes Provisions of
Rayburn Bill.
[Fron Tho Tribuna Burean,]
Washington, June ?.. A. P. Thorn, gen?
eral counsel for the South-Til Railway,
to-day argued against some of ?he pro?
visions of the Rayburn bill, regulating
the laeua Of st??? ks and ?bonds by railroads
and other common carriers, b?-fore the
Senate interstate Commerce Committee.
He declared that should Congress enact
this bill into law, is It passed the House:
giving the Interstate Commeice Commis?
sion entire discretion as to the Issue of
s. i iiriti? s i v the railroads, as proposed
by the measure, Congress would go be
] .'lid its proper powers.
Mr. Thorn warned the committee that
if strinKent regulations were adopted
Bgalnat railroads, regulatione which would
prevent their growth and development *.o
m?*et the needs of the public, the time
WOlid come when government ownership
would be demanded. But. he said, he had
become convinced that the people of the
various states would eventually he strong?
ly opposed to government ownership, be?
cause It would remove from taxation
property which now pays the country
over |13?-!,<A".?,0?J0 in taxes each year.
"Nothing should be done to shock pub?
lic contldence In the railroads as proper
tields for investment," continued Mr.
Thorn. "I believe that you have reached
the parting of the ways and that hence?
forth you have got to build wisely in
your legislation."
Representatives of the Chamber of
Commerce of the I'nited Otates appeared
before the Senate committee also to ex?
plain the attitude of that organization
toward proposed trust legislation.
o
TURN ABOUT.
Dlscassing woman's status in India, a
New York suffragette, on her return from
i a tour of the wtrld, said at the Colony
?.'bib:
"I was surprise I to learn while in Bom
? bay that woman's position In India is
the m?ans of depriving all natives?even
native princes?of memtership in the
smart English clubs.
?'.Most of us attribute the exclusion of
Indians from Knglish clubs to snobbish?
ness; to contempt for an inferior, sub?
ject la.c In this we are mistaken. The
reoson for this exclusion is revealed in a
discussion between a British army officer
ami a married Indian nobleman. The
army officer, annoyed at the Indian's at
1 tentlonn to a young English girl, said to
him Irrltj.')ly:
" 'How would you like it if we flirted
with your women as you flirt with ours?'
" 'Ah.' the Indian replied, with a sneer,
'we see to it that you have no chance to
flirt with our women If you don't take
the same precaution you have only your?
selves to blame.'
"This is the explanation of the exclu?
sion Of the Indian from English club life.
High ?-a:,to lidian wr.men are not per
' nitted to miiiKle with English women, let
alone with English men; they are not
taken by th?ir husbands and fathers into
aodety. Therefore the BngUsb club ofll
r.-is ib- i?l?(l. and 1 think they were wise?
that the Indian has no right to expect en
??? i linm? nt from tho English women at
club balls, dinners, etc., when he takes
good rare that his own women shall never
as much as he ?--??en by Englishmen."
THE POINT OF VIEW.
"You would not wonder that 1 have for?
saken i'laywritiiig." said Booth Tarktng*
ton in Indianapolis, "If you knew how
' hard it Is to-day to make a success.
'?Musical comedies like "The ''irl from
Paris' are what the public wants rather
than serious ?plays."
Mr. Taridngton, smiling, continued:
"A young man who had se? n the llrst
. parforman.e of 'The Girl from 1'arls" from
? a front row seat said as he leu the
theatre with a friend, amid the deafen?
ing encores ??f thr- lingering audience;
" 'I am not surprised that the play Is

ALUMINUM SOLES.
From The Argonaut.
<?ne of the newest and perhaps oddest
' uses for aluminum is Its employment in
making the soles of shoes to be used by
workmen employed in wet and damp
places. The aluminum-soled shoe lasts
much longer than an ordinary shoe, and
is saiil to he impervious to dampness.
The growth of the aluminum industry is
little short of remarkable. In 1913 72.3T*?.

it was a year ago! Every year has seen an increase in
your patronage, but never has your patronage been so generous
as it is today. Therefore do we rejoice, and, to enable you to
rejoice with us, we have made special effort to provide wonder?
ful values during this entire jubilee month of June. Never
before have our shelves and counters been so crowded with
goods of every variety at so low prices. Never before would a
dollar buy so much in the Big Store as right now. THEN, TOO,
WE RETURN THE EQUIVALENT OF FIVE CENTS OF
EVERY DOLLAR YOU SPEND (if you buy in the morning)

There is not a human want possible to purchase with
money that cannot be had here in our two enormous store
buildings! Each article is priced for this jubilee sale at so low
a figure that, quality considered, it cannot be obtained else?
where for that price. This we know. Furthermore, each
article is the very best to be had of its kind. You can rely
on its value. The fact that you can thus always rely upon
Greenhut values is what makes the Big Store grow in patronage,
while other stores complain of "poor trade."
