Stewart, )ipponents of Daylight Sav ing Fail to Muster Enough yotes on Floor to Repeal the Law. (Special United Press Wire.) Washington, July 14. - An at tempt to override the president's veto on the daylight saving repeal failed in the house today. Oppon ents to the law lacked 23 votes of the 230 necessary to pass the meas ure over the veto. The final vote on the agricultural bill, to which the re peal was a rider, was 247 for to 135 against, with one meumuer voting not iresent. After. the vote, the bill was re ferred to the agricultural commuittee and probably will be reported to the house later without the rider. Dem ocrdtic Leaders Clark and Kitchin, as well as many other democrats, voted against the president. Wilson in returning the bill, stated the repeal of the daylight saving would cause great inconvenience to the country, also from serious eco nonmic loss, adding Ihat "daylight saving resulted not only from a, care ful study of industrial. 'conditions by competent men, but also from ob servation of happy and bene:icial consequences of similar legislntion iii other countries, where it has le sulted as in the United States, in sub stantial economy. "The act was intended to place the chief business activities, as near ly as possible, within the limits, of daylight throughout the year. It re sulted in very great economies in fuel and substantial economies in energy, because of a very different effect of the work done in da:'light and the work done by artificial light.

Mr. Kremer seemed to think that the federal reserve law, which he says may be blamed on the demo crats, had put the business men upon such a secure footing before.the war! started, that actually, as a force for I the winning of the war, "it was of more value than would have been: 5,000,000 trained soldiers." He men tioned the compensation acts,, too, for which he says the democrats were responsible-and the child la bor laws. He didn't say anything about the supreme court in conhec tion with child labor laws. He.did say, however, that every law which 'labor had asked for had been passed by the democrats.

Bills Are Pending to .Curb Pa rs (Special United Press Wire.) Washington, July 14.--The federal trade comimissions' report, charging thie "Big Five" packers with seeking complete control of the nation's food. brought: into the foreground, senaitt bills pending to curb them. The measures are the Kenyon act which seek to put the packers under strict government license and the Kendrick bill which is more moderate. "I believe it is only a matter ot time, unless present- tendencies are stopped, when the 'Big Five' pack, ers o'r erhaps two of them, will ab solutely' dictate to the people lshat they shall eat and what they shall pay for it," declared Senator Capper. He, is a member of the agricultural committee, which i~ handling the ment on the force. The testimony brought out a state ment by Judge Lamb that it would. be well for the persons responsible for the administration of the police department to study up on the metropolitan police law. Golubin, according to records on file in the city c:erk's office, which were produced and read in court by City Clerk Irwin, was appointed to the police force January 10, 1916. According to police records shown in court this morning and verified by Detective Frank White, Edward Morrissey was appointed January 18, 1 910, Barry Cronin was appointed May 10, 1916, Bernard King was ap ,ointed May 30, 1916, and Ton. Walsh was appointed June 2, 1916. Yet N. M. Golubin, who was ap pointed previous to the appointments of all of the other four officers and was therefore entitled to priority under the metropolitan law, accord ing to his Complaint, was laid off in the bunch of 20 men who were sac rificed to the god of necessity when the city's financial condition com pelled Mayor Stodden to reduce the police force. Nick Golubin was laid off and is still off, it was shown, while Ed Morrissey was not laid off in that hunch of 20, and neither was Cronin. And yet those two were appointed after Golubin. It was shown that Morrissey has since been discharged and Barry Cronin has resigned, but that Tom \Valsh and Bernard Kiug are at present in active duty on the police-according to the testimuo:ny of Frank White. The evidence introduced seeks to indicate that a conspiracy on the part of the police chief and the police lieutenant, concurred in by former Mayor Lane, was the cause of Golubin's troubles. Golubin was disliked by Murphy and Dwyer, it appears. - They hal hot words at times, the evidence shows. After working 10 months on the force, Golubin, according to his own testimony, was laid off for seven days. After going back he worked for 24 days. Then one night he has hot words with Dwyer. Lieutenant Dwyer ordered him to turn it his tools and get out, according tO the testimony introduced this morning. Golubin replied that he had come to work and wanted to work. Dwyer told him to turn in his star and get out or he would be thrown down be low-meaning the jail-it was testi fied. Gloubin. it was stated this morn j ing, threw his star and key on the table and went out. He claims that he never resigned, and 'that imme diately afterward and- many times thereafter he imnportuned the police chief and Mayor Lane for permission to 'do his work as a police officer. This permission was refused, lie says. Attorney Guy Tyler, who is a friend of Golubin, went in the lat ter's behalf to Mayor Lane, and was told by Lane, so Mr. Tyler testified this morning, that Mayor Lane couldn't put Golubin back. to work because "Chief Murphy just doesn't like him and won't have him." Hence, it is asserted "by Golubin, apparently for ,that very reason he wad not allowed to do his work as a police officer for something, like 11 months. However, on April 1, 1919, one night when Golubin was working 1, down in the Travonia mine, the Sshift boss came to him and said that (Continued on Page. Six.) packer legislation.
