Vancouver Library Hoard Declines
Millionaire's Endowment.
Vancouver, British Columbia, Jan. 23
The $30,000 which Andrew Carnegie pre
sented to Vancouver twelve years ago
for the building of a library Is to be re
turned to him with interest. The city
has long since outgrown the Carnegie
Building, so It is to be sold for business
purposes and a new one erected. The
labor population has been opposed to the
Carnegie endowment, and It was their
influence that Induced the library board
to decide to reimburse the "laird."

Sentiment Plays Important Part in
Adoption of Fine Arts Commis
sion's Recommendations.
By a vote of 31 to 153, with an ex
ceptionally large number of members
voting, the House -esterday adopted tho
recommendation of the Lincoln Memorial
Commission calling for the emplacement
of a $2,000,000 memorial structure enclos
ing a huge statue of Abraham Lincoln
at the extreme west end of the Mall.
The action of the House following an
all-day light in the course of which
members of both sides of the chamber In
dulged In soaring nights of silver-tongued
oratory, and urged the use of the money
for every purpose from the alleviation of
sweat-shop methods in the government
departments to good roads. It means
that the monumental memorial, which
will tower higher than the United States
Capitol building proper, now" Is assured,
despite the determined efforts of good
roads protagonists to divert the appro
priation into other channels from that
originally Intended
The action jesterday Is final. The
House passed the Senate concurrent res
olution which merely aproves of the ex
penditure of the money previously appro
priated for a memorial, in the manner
recommended by the Lincoln Memorial
The Borland substitute for the Senate
concurrent reso:jtion was knocked out

Leader Mann, but not until everyone
present had been given an opportunity
to speak.. Mr. Mann made his point of
order early in the day and reserved It
until members could be heard on the
different propositions.
Opposition Offered.
The Borland substitute was to provide
for a memorial highway between Wash
ington and Gettjsburg. It was ruled out
after every one had finished talking on
the ground that it was not germane to
the resolution under discussion, and that
the bill appropriating money for the me
morial had specified that the memorial
should be in the District of Columbia.
Representative Stephens of Texas of
fered a substitute providing that the
money be expended In a handsome me

plans now being made by the most astute
Republicans of Ohio do not go astray.
The Republicans of that State are grow

tired, of being defeated through their own
factional fights, and are disposed to get
together and next time meet the enemy
with a solid front. Representative Long

all tangible progressive legislation, there
fore has the good will of the Progressives
of his State. During me last campaign
he was loyal to President Taft and gave
his best efforts In support of the regular
ticket, and. therefore, stands well with
the old timers. He is not seeking tho
nomination for Governor, out his party
loyally Is such that he will not refuse
the nomination If tendered him, and It
looks as if it will be tendered him with
practical unanimity.

.the situation tersely in saying: "If any
third party man, or any Democrat In any
State, imagines there will be two wings
to the Republican party in Ohio at the
next election, he may rid himself of that
Imagination, for we are after Democratic
scalps In the future. There will be no
more third party in our State." This feel
ing also exists among those who sup
ported the third party at the last elec

cess, and they all believe they can get
harmony and success through Represcnt

Election of Saulsbury by Dela
ware Legislature Assures
Majority of jOne.
Illinois May Add to List by Sending
J. Ham Lewis to Washington.
News of the election of Wlilard Sauls
burj. a Democrat, as Senator from Dela
ware, was received In the Senate jes
terday with evident satisfaction. H
makes it certain that the Democrats wl'l
have a clear working majority In the
Senate. The Democratic membership in
the next Senate will be forty-nine,
majority of one. with the prospect that
this majority will be Increased by the
election of a Democrat in Illinois, and
possimy one in New Hampshire.
In addition to the party strength of
the Democrats, the leaders feel certain
of receiving support from a number of
the Progressive Republicans on the
tariff legislation and other Important
measures. Tne Republicans now count
thirty-two Senators that have always
been classed as "regulars." This num
ber will be increased by tbo election of
Republican Senators from one or moro
states now in cieaaiocK.-among them
Illinois. West Virginia, and possibly
New Hampshire.
It is- expected that President Wilson will
be able to command tho tupport of the
following Progressive Republicans for the
passage of his policies relating to the tar
iff, trust, and banking reform: Bristow,
Clapp, Crawford. Sterling of South Da
kota, and La Follette.

of Government.

mat tne United States Steel Cornora.
tlon crushed competition is to bo made
by ex-Judge E. IL Gary. James Farrell.
and other steel magnates when they
lano tne si ana in tne corporation s de
fense early In March.
An outline of Judge Gary's evidence
was given to-day by attorneys of the
steel corporation at the conclusion of
tne days hearing- before Referee
Brown, the special government investi
gator In the steel inquiry. Tho govern
ment's ca-c was rested late in the day.
with a reservation on tho part of Coun
sel Coulton, for the government, to call
one more witness to-morrow If he Is
able to find him.
Mr. Severance, of counsel to the
Steel Trust, told the government's In
quisitors that it will take him five
weeks at least to whip into shape the
mass or evidence the steel corporation
wants to spread on the records In refu
tation of tire charge that It maintained
a combination to control trade.
Expect Twenty or Mora Witnesses.
Tho Steel Trust will put on twentv nr
more witnesses. Including all the Jieads
of tho corporation. Judge Gary, chair
man of the Steel Trust's finance com
mittee, who was accused by former
President William Ellis Corey with in
timate knowledge of tho pools organized
by the trust to regulate prices. Intends
to go Into an exhaustlvo history of tho
Steel Corporation from Its Inception, Mr.
Gary, for one thing, win reiterate his
denial before the tSanley committee a
year ago that any pool to rcgulato prices
existed with his knowledge. Before the
Stanley committee he swore that, when
he learned. In 1903, that a steel rail pool
had been formed, ho instantly caused
It i to le broken up. This Mr. Corey
llatly challenged.
The ficrco competition that reigned In
the steel trade before 1901, when tho Steel
Corporation was organized, will be re
cited, by Mr. Gary, together with the
facts leading up to the absorption of
tne L-amegie ssteel Company, Its bitterest
rival. The acquisition or tho Carnegie
Company, Mr. Gary will maintain, work
ed to the advantage ot the Carnegie con
cern, and did not In the least hurt com
peting firms.
Helped Build Up Trade.
Later on, Mr. Gary will insist other
firms showed their eagerness to come
into the corporation, so as to ge the
benefit of concentrated finances, and the
consequent up-Dulldlng of their plants
Mr. Gary will arguo that prices In the
steel trade were stimulated, rather than
depressed, after the Steel Corporation
was formed, and that all steel companies
made more money then they ever did
In an effort to back up this contention,
the Steel Trust heads will revert to fig
ures put In to-day by the government,
which shows that the Steel Corporation
controlled only slightly more of the en
tire output of the country after the ac
quisition of the competing firms than be
fore the corporation was launched.
while the Steel Corporation maintains
this Is an argument that competition was
not destroyed, the government takes the
ground that a total or nearly DO per" cent
of trie entire output o the steel Industry
or any other Is enough to give the
dominant factor tho advantage. The
government attorneys Insist they have
shown bjj witnesses that the trust was
able, through its powerful resources to
fix prices and compel competitors to live
up' to them or be ewallowed-up.

A warning against "political nostrums"
cTthe day, against the abandonment or
he old principles ot government under
which the American nation has grown
great, was sounded by President Tart, in
an address at the annual banquet ot the
Washington Tale Alumni Association
last night at the Raleigh Hotel. He
declared that he was returning to New
Haven, to become a member of the ---u!ty,
with the idea of teaching, as ,far as
possible, the undergraduates or Yalo the
sound principles of government.

kind of gratitude that makes us wish
to express it whenever occasion arises.
"Yale Is n.t the largest university In
the country. There are others that are
forging ahead, under State air. under
conditions that furnish more students,
and to those o wish every advantage
and every success. But I hope we may
be pardoned lr we feel, that In the tra

is a tradition spirit in which we have an
advantag over younger institutions
