islation unnecessarv.
The tremendous political advantage
the democrats would have secured as
the result of such a position seemed
almost alreadv attained, and they had
made up their minds that they had
"brought about a split in the republican
organization the senate, when, with
out a word of warning, their hopes were
dashed to the ground by the shrewd
maneuvering of Mr. Allison.
Democratic disappointment of course
is very keen, and it has found expres
sion for two days now in an attack
upon the president which has been
made as bitter and as biting as pos
sible. The conntrv, however, should not
be misled by that attack, and should
understand what is behind it.
May Annoy President.
So far as the Boosevelt administra
tion is concerned, it is probable that
the alliance which is to pass the rate
bill without democratic aid will come
"back again and again to annoy and
perplex. The conservative senators
who are now standing with the presi
dent in support of the rate bill as
amended by Mr. Allisonf do not like
the president any better than they did
a year or two ago, when they were
abusing him more or less openly.
After this rate legislation is out of
the way, they will again pull together
against the president, iust as they have
done in the past, and the president,
having forsaken the .democrats once,
probably will be unable again to bring
them to his support. With this the
situation, it seems very possible that
the president will have a good deal of
difficulty, if, later" on in his adminis
tration, he again should come forward
with some radical policy.
The republican speeches in the sen
ate todav, denying the democratic con
tention that the Allison amendment
provides for broad court review, and
insisting that the amendment does not
go farther than it was alwavs con
tended the house bill would" automati
cally go, were for the most part of a
high grade These speeches were made

Mr. Long made the interesting state

couched in almost the precise language
afterwards used by Mr. Allison. The
two provisions, in his judgment, were
identical.
La Follette with Dems.
There were numerous roll calls dur

the Allison amendment, by democrats
for the most part. These amendments
were all voted down, in accordance

GREAT BRITAIN'S^ ^lf"2'
son amendment was not to be changed.
On these amendments Mr. La Fol
lette usually voted with the democrats.
His own amendment, prohibiting fed
eral judges who own railroad stock,
bonds or other securities from sitting
judgment upon any rate case, was de
feated by a decisive vote on a motion
by Mr. Hale that it be laid on the ta
ble. Mr. McCumber voted with Mr.
La Follette and the democrats against
the Hale motion.
The question as to whether the Alli
son amendment provides for broad or
narrow court Teview can only be de
termined by the courts themselves. It
is apparent that the president and his
friends believe that it does not provide
for broad review. It is just as apparent
that the democrats want the country to
believe that they think it does. It is
further apparent that the amendment is
entirely acceptable to the conservatives
of the senate, and the inference is
easy that they, like the democrats,
think that under it the review will be
broad. Only one of the conservative
leaders, Mr. Aldrich, has anything to
say to the senate about the character
of the review.
Up to Courts Now.
The entire question, as has been pre
viously stated in these dispatches, is
one for the courts themselves to de
termine, and what the courts will do
nobody knows.
Mr. Dolliver made a good point today
in the course of a speech, defending the
president from the democratic charge
that he had surrendered to the men
who have wanted a broad review, when
he said that the senate for almost
three months had been spending its
time magnifying the little things in
the bill, and practically no time at
all to considering the big things that
are to be found there.
To his mind the question of court
review is one of these little things the
courts^ have in control regardless of
the language congress may insert in
the bill or withhold from it. In this
remark Mr. Dolliver is correct, for Mr.
La Follette is almost the only senator
who, in discussing the bill, has devoted
himself to a careful and comprehensive
presentation of the main provisions of
it and the necessity that exists for
their enactment into law.
The entire country is no doubt
amazed at the radical character the
bill is showing under the numerous
amendments already adopted in the
senate. Among these amendments
are those placing pipe lines, Pullman
cars and express companies under the
control of the interstate commerce com
mission, reviving the prison penalties
in the rebate section of the law, abol
ishing passes, providing for the con
struction of side tiacKS, and for .the
effective control of those agencies
thru which the abuses of discrimina
tion have been practiced.
Why Senate Yielded.

Some of this amazement no doubt
has grown out of the failure of the
country to understand, why the con
servative senate has Deen willing to
permit these things' to be engrafted
upon the bill. The explanation, how
ever, is not difficult.
The enactment of thjs r^tte legisla
tion' in its general legislative features,
is similar to the enactment of a tariff
law. There is hardly a standpatter
in congress who would object to revis
ing some half dozen of the more offen
sive schedules if that revision Could
be accomplished without precipitating
a revision of the wmire tariff law.
Once congress were to secure parlia
mentary control of a proposal to change
the half dozen schedules referred to,
however, it would certainly proceed to
general revision. And so the standpat
ters take the position they do.
It is a similar proposition with the
pending rate bill. Mr. Elkins, Mr.
Aldrich and numerous other conserva
tive senators have Deen saying for a
couple of years, or ever since the rate
issue was brought to th e' front, that
there was already sufficient law to pre
vent the abuses complained "of, and
that all that was necessary was to have
it properly enforced.
These gentlemen knew full Well that
the moment congress took up*the rate
question, with a.vjew to making the
legislation demanded by the president,
the entire question of railway^manage

^UNIQUE WARSHIP
Mine-strewing Vessel Embodies the Latest Lessons of the
Jap War Plus British Improvements.
THE NEW BRITISH MINE-STREWING WARSHIP IPHIGENIA.
ERE is aphotograph of the busi
ness end of the Iphigenia, the
latest addition to the British
navy. She carries only light machine
guns and there is nothing about her to
convince the ordinary observer that she
is a particularly formidable craft, but
so much importance is attached to her
that when The Journal's London
correspondent made inquiries at the ad
miralty office, he was told that an offi
cial embargo of secrecy had been placed
upon her, and that under no circum
stances would any information be given
out about her.
Probably, however, writes our corre
spondent, the Naval Intelligence bureau
at Washington has stowed away in
some pigeonhole, every detail about this
new vessel that is worth knowing. The
Iphigenia is a mine-strewing warship.
She embodies the latest navallessons of
the Russo-Japanese war, which demon
strated the awful destructiveness of
floating mines, plus the best that the
British admiralty experts can do to im
prove upon them. Along each side of
her deck aft, as shown in the picture,
are two ro vs of elevated rails on which
are slung mines that look like huge
balls. These rails project over the ves
sel's stern so that they can be dropped
overboard as she steams along. They
contain the most powerful explosives
that science devoted to human destruc
tion can devise. They are, in reality,
hermetically sealed miniature earth
quakes that need only a bump to set
them off. And woe betide the craft
that gives that bump! The force of
the explosion would knock a hole in
the bottom of the stoutest battleship
afloat and send her to Davy Jones'
locker in no time.
The compounding of the explosives
employed is one or the admiralty's se
crets. Another and still more import
ant one, it is said, is a device by means
of which the mines float several feet
below the surface. This renders it im
possible to detect their presence by the
sharpest lookout, and greatly increases
their destructive power, inasmuch as,
under such conditions, the terrible
wounds thev inflict would be some .dis
tance below the water line.
The floating mine is, of course, a two
edged weapon, equally dangerous to
friend or foe. Once set adrift, there is
no controlling them. Besides, scatter
ing them around promiscuously in time
of warfare, would be apt to lead t- ~o-
rious complications with neut
ers. It is not expected that i
ever be employed that fashy
British navy, while it maintaii
premacy, but in any naval
which Englanad might become
they would probably be emp
mainly to seal up the enemy po.
When used for this purpose, they would
not be set adrift, but would be moored,
and in such a way that they would be
some fifteen feet under water. But at
the same time, when equipped with
such vessels as the Iphigenia, England
will be in a position to play the floating
mine game to the limit, if need be.
been smarting under railway abuses of
all kinds.
Whipped into Line.
The things demanded by the presi
dent were bad enough, from the view
point of the conservatives, but they
were no forse than the numerous other
things they knew would be added to
the bill in an effort to satisfy the de
mands made by the general public. And
so the conservatives, as long as they
could fought against any kind of rail
road legislation. Now, that legislation
has come, it is accompanied by the
many radical things they had foreseen.
Obviously, the temper of the country
being, wbat it is, even the conservative
senate, with the general railroad ques
tion before it, could not refuse to grant
tne people the relief for which they so
long have been playing in vain. The
only way in which that relief might
have been refused would have been thru
failure to open up the question at all.
Once opened, there was no power to
prevent just the things that have hap
pened.
So it comes to pass that the country
is getting a much more radical law
than even the president originally had
thought would be possible.
May Pass Bill Monday.
It is believed that the rate bill will
be finally passed by the selfate and
sent to conference Monday or Tuesday.
The long and remarkable contest
which is now drawing to a close has
aaded materially to the reputation of
two members of the senate. Bailey of
Texas comes out of it with increased
reputation. He has earned for himselt
a position among the recognized first
lawyers of the senate. He has not
claimed to be an expert in the great
subject of transportation and its multi
plied problems, and on that subject La
Follette has proved himself as thoroly
master of the field as Bailey has in the
realm of constitutional law.
Most of reputation and recognition
out of the winter's contest will go to
those two men. La Follette, it is true,
has been snubbed and slapped and in
sulted at every opportunity, from the
walkout of senators at the beginning of
his speech to a harassing and unfair
enforcement against him of the strict
rules of debate. But that was perhaps
what he came here for: it was what
he expected. He made his record he
set the stakes for the future course of
this contest, and he will be a leader in
that contest.
Senator Tillman has not made the
most of his opportunity as manager of
the bill. He has not demonstrated any
genius for parliamentary leadership
and the proof he has given that he is an
earnest, honest man, with a keen tongue
and a blunt way, is nothing new.
Aldrich is credited by some observers
with a great tactical victory in the, Alli
son amendment, but it must be real
ized that he has been beaten every time
the senate inserted a strengthening
clause in the bill. On the whole, there
is room for much discussion as to the
effect this experience will have on the
future status of the Rhode Islander in
the senate.

With the filing oi suits against all of
the druggists of Cedar Falls, La Porte
and Hudson for the revocation of their
permits to sell intoxicating liquor,
action has now been, taken by the tem
perance advocates against every legal

druggist, including those in Waterloo,
who surrendered their permits, either
voluntarily or because sui+s

brought against them.
It is alleged in the suits against the
Cedar Falls, La Porte and Hudson
druggists, that they have sold intox
icating liquors to divers persons in the
past two years without requiring the
applicant first to sign a request for the
same, as required by the statutes.
These suits will be heard by Judge
Piatt at the Mav term, which begins
next Tuesday. The matter of revoking
a permit may be investigated by the
court under five days' notice, according
to the section of the liw under which
the suits are instituted.
The temperance people have Sought
gamely, and as a result not a druggist
in Waterloo has a permit to sll liquor.
The cases against the twenty four sa

So bitter has been the feeling engen

RED GAP NOW LOST TO
ARCHBISHOP IRELAND
Dinner of Ambassador White
C:pital of His Designing
Rivals.
Special Cable to The Journal.
Rome. May 12.Mgr. Ireland, arch
bishop of St. Paul, who left this city a
few days ago on his return to the
United' States, made many additional
friends while here, but the opinion is
nevertheless held in Vatican- circles
that his promotion to the Sacred college
has become impossible. The Vatican
might have overlooked some of the
American prelate's liberal utterances
in the past, such as his advocacy of the
renunciation of the claims to temporal
power on the part of the pope, and his
stand taken on the educational question
in Minnesota.
While in Borne,.however, Mgr. Ire
land was entertained at dinner by the
American ambassador to Italy, and ouiy
cardinals honored him by being pres
ent. The fact that an ambassador to
the Italian king was able to entertain
such prominent prelates in the city of
the popes has given umbrage to the
Vatican authorities, and it is believed
that the American archbishop will be
made the scapegoat, even if the cardin
als concerned are not publicly repri
manded. It has even been suggested
here that the dinner was arranged to
give practical reiteration to Mgr. Ire
land's opinion regarding tne temporal
powert but this the Vatican authorities
are said not to believe.
As an offset to the political effect of
the dinner just referred to and to af
firm once more that the pope is the
only legal sovereign of Rome, an inti
mation of tremendous importance has
just been made, semi-officially, at the
Vatican. It is to the effect that all
necessary arrangements have now been
made for a visit to the Vatican by the
king of Spain and his bride during
their honeymoon. The visit will be
made during the summer, and the royal
couple will be received with great hon
or. Arrangements are made that the
king shall be a guest of the Spanish
embassy to the Vatican, and that dur
ing his short stay in Eome he shall ab
solutely ignore "the Italian officials. It
is ,the opinion in Vatican circles that a
visit to the pope by a Catholic reigning
sovereign will practically constitute a
new affirmation of the rights of the
pope to temporal supremacy over the
city of Rome.

EARTH HABITABLE FDR
100,000,000 YEARS
Chicago Scientist Belittles Quakes
Says Human Race Is*
in Infancy.
Journal EpeoUl Service.
Chicago, May 12.That the earth
will be habitable for a hundred mil
lion years to come is the belief of Dr.
Thomas C. Chamberlain, head of the
department of geology in the Univer
sity of Chicago. This view he ex
pressed in a lecture before the mem
bers of the geographic society.
Professor Chamberlain declared that
climatic- phenomena and temperature
conditions of the last hundred million
years warrjuj+gd him in offering the
foregoing optimistic prophecy. His ba
sis for the theory of perpetuity for hu
man life was his own "planetismal hy
pothesis" that the world is not gradu
ally cooling from a ball of fire, but that
it gradually has brown in size by ab
sorbing other small masses of matter.
GORGEOUS TRAPPINGS
BY
WORLD'S END NEAR, SAY
SOME ANOTHElRlDENIES
Only Local. Changes.
"The pseudo-Romanticists picture
the world as cooling into a frigid mass
which one day in the near future is to
become inhabitable/' said the speaker,
"but if we are to consider the past
we must admit that the temperature of
the earth has remained always within
the range where human life is possi
ble. Therefore, it is only reasonable
to suppose that the temperature in some
parts of the globe will remain within
that life range.
"Of course, the atmosphere may
change in certain parts of the world,
as it has done, but it always will bal
ance up. Once figures and tropical
growths flourished Greenland, while
glaciers extended into India. This was
due to an extraordinary swing in tem
perature. The present: climatic condi
tions are due to a similar change. All
these oscillations, however, have been
kept in the narrow range for the perpe
tuity of life. Humans Just Started.
"The earthquake is really only a
trivial phenomenon of the earth. The
great question for us is not what dis
asters impend, but what agencies are
like to perpetuate life."
Professor Chamberlain told how the
land and sea co-operate to preserve life
and the possibilities of life.
"We cannot look with indifference
on the future," continued th^ speaker.
"The human race really has just come
into possession of the earth. The fact
that the rocks and the animals have had
their eras of prosperity is the basis
for my belief that we shall have mil
lions of years to work out our ideals of
intellectuality. I believe the world will
be inhabitable for millions of years."
Second Highest Prince of India
Reaches New York on
World Tour.
New York Herald Seoll Service.
New York, May 12.On the White
Star liner Celtic, today, came a direct
descendant of the Moguls of India, his
highness the Gaikwar, Maharjah of
Thardoah. He is accompanied by his
wife and daughter.
The Gaikwar left Liverpool on May
4 and occupied the imperial suite on
the Celtic. The Gaikwar is the second
greatest prince in all India. The other
notable, the Maharjah of Mysore, out
ranks him by about a degree or two, but
the Indian visitor 'is of sufficient im
portance to have received the homage
and respect of members of the Euro
pean nobility and royalty, whom he has
,-just visited.
The Gaikwar purposes making his
tour of the United States a notable af
fair. While no official plans have been
formed for his entertainment in New
York, yet many public andx private hon
ors wiil be accorded him and his suite.
His Rich Jewels.
Interest centers in the potentate, not
only on account of his personality and
distinguished lineage, but because of
his gorgeous manner of traveling. He
has gone thru Europe in a manner such
as is described in "Lalla Rookh"with
the exception that he has used modern
means of travel. Oriental plendor has
marked his appearance everywhere.
His jewels, most of which he carried
with him, are worth the proverbial
king's ransom. It is stated that they
would fill a barrel. He is the qwner of
the only golden artillery in the world.
The guns are moulded and carved from
gold and are set on the walls about his
palace in India and are viewed as one
of the greatest curiosities.
Magnificent Palace.
His palace is on the order of those
described in the Arabian Nights. I ia
gorgeous and all its appointments and
sumptuous. His carriages are of gold
and finely carved wood and the bullock*
which draw them wear golden trappings
and gold crowns surmount their horns*
The Gaikwar is a descendant of one)
of the Mahratta generals who were the
Moguls, or rulers of India when the
East India company wrested control
from them. He is the ruler of the
state of Baroda, which has a popula
tion of 4,000,000 \ind an area of 8,000,-
000 square miles. Baroda is the capi
tal and has over 100,000 population.
The Gaikwar is alert, versatile and
well educated. He speaks several lan
guages and is exceptionally proficient in
the English language.

While they differed somewhat in de
tails, all agreed that the end
of the world is at hand.
They were* not quite sure wheth

on May 2, 1929 or April 9, 1931, but
they were quite sure that one of these
dates will prove to be the right one.
There can be no doubt that the world
has nearly outlived itself and its use

The wars and earthquakes which
have afflicted it recently are proof pos

their prophecies is the coming of the

make his first poltical appearance as

There will be 10,000,000 Christians
in the world at this time, the ptophets
declare, but evidently they will not all
be equally deserving of favor, for in
1924 or 1926, 144,000 of'them will be

St. Petersburg, May 12.With the
assembling of the newly constituted
douma for its first business session yes- 1
terday, the attitude of opposition to the
czar, which the new assembly is bound
to assume, was shown without attempt"
at concealment. a
The deputies showed that they are\
determined to secure amnesty for all**
political offenders if it is within their
power to do so, as the first step in their
of reformation for Russia. Un
amnesty is granted by the- czar there*
is little likelihood that any business
of importance can be transacted,
Conflict at Start.
So anxious were the deputies to get'f
a chance to put themselves on record
as favoring amnesty in a way that tho
c*ar cannot ignore, that there was av
sharp conflict at the very outset of the
meeting between Premier Mouromtseffi!^.?.
and deputies who insisted upon taking
the subject up for consideration.
The presiding officer had scarcely,
announced that the first order of busi
ness would be the selection of minor,
officers of the douma when Deputy
Anikens demanded that the amnesty
subject be taken up. President
Mouromtseff proved the excellent eon
tiol he has over the douma by quickly
restoring order snd insisting that the
order of business be adhered to. He

London, May 12.A rush thru Eng
land and Scotland in a hired automobile
is this year's favorite method of the
swiftly moving American visitor, who
has but a fortnight for seeing the in
teresting places in the old country, af
ter, perhaps a two-days' rush around
London.
Orders for automobiles in large num
bers are being placed with various firms
and the usual period for which a ear
is hired is a fortnight, and the average
price for a car to seat four, besides the
driver is $150 a week.
Visitors rush thru the country as
fancy dictates, spending perhaps three
days in the south, two days in Wales,
five days in the midlands and the north,
and a couple of days in Scotland before
dashing back to London again.

She writes of this wonderful cure: "I thought1
that it was my duty to let you know what
your wonderful Safe Cure has done for me,,
as there may be somebody Buffering as I was.]
I had a tumor, and my doctor told me that I
would bare to go to Cambridge hospital to be
operated on. He gare me a permit to the hospi
tal at Cambridge. The doctor examined me,
and he -said it was too dangerous a place to
tackle in the warm season of the jear. He
would wait until the last of October, and he
would send to Baltimore after the doctors to
com* down and assist him about cutting the
tumor out. It was about five Inches long, oa
a very dangerous artery. Returning from Cam
bridge I stopped at a store and bought a bottle
of Warner's Safe Cure and commenced taking it
according to directions, and before I had used
that bottle the tumor was nearly gone, and I
got another bottle and took half of that, and I
was Anally vured when the last of August came
without being operated on. If you wish to use
my name you are perfectly welcome to do so.
