Secretary Gets Into Bitter Fac
tional Game.
TWO SPEECHES IN ONE DAY
Governor Cummins Lampooned for
His Tariff Views.
SENTIMENT IS NOTABLY LESS
Revisionists Are Scored for Demand
ing Immediate Action?Position
of President Defined in Address.
DES MOINES, Iowa, June 2.?Secretary
of the Treasury Leslie M. Shaw came to
Iowa today to participate In a bitter fac
tional fight for governor, now on In the
republican party. Secretary Shaw delivered
two speeches, in which he attacked Gov.
Cummins for being a tariff revisionist.
This afternoon Secretary Shaw' spoke at
Newton to a large audience, and tonight
he addressed a crowded house at Knox
vllle, both towns being in counties claimed
by Gov. Cummins, who is opposed for re
election by George D. Perkins of Sioux
City.
Most of Secretary Shaw's addresses In
both towns was devoted to a discussion of
the tralff. He assailed the republicans who
demand Immediate revision, but he sug
gested the possibility of revision after the
19UK Presidential election.
Secretary Shaw said, in part:
Reduction of Sentiment.
There is not one-fourth the sentiment for
tariff revision there was three ye:irs ago,
and not a bit In the republican pirty for
Immediate revision. I correct that state
ment. 1 do know two states that are per
fectly willing to remove all the protection
that is not for their own benefit The
republican party has never gone out or
power even on the tarifT issue except im
mediately following a revision of the tariff
at its own hands, and neither we nor the
demoorats. have revised the tariff and re
mained in power a year except in the case
election In 1004 President
Roosevelt lu?* submitted three messages to
Congress, in not one of which did he rec
ommend tariff revision.
? Are we Roosevelt republicans? If so. why
should we not sbe standpatters? He has
made many ?peeehes. but in none ha h^
recommended tarifT revision ?he"
tell the people they are robbed by the tariff
which he does not recommend shall be re
vised you Indict your President for not
demanding that revision.
No Action by Committee.
"Since the last republican platrorm was
adopted the committee on ways and means,
which must originate tarifT legislation, has
formulated no revision, nor has It consid
ered the formulation of such a bill, feince
that platform was adopted the congres
sional caucus has met again and aga.n, ou.
It has recommended no tariff revision.
"Who is responsible for the policies of
the party? Does not the national con
vent!^ speak that way? Arc we as re
publicans not bound by that plaUorm.
Does not the republican President the
leader of his party, speak with authority,
and as republicans are we not bound by nis
recommendations and by his failure to rec
ommend? Is not the republican majority
In Congress clothed with authority to speak
for the party, and Is it not clothed with
authority to keep silence?
?I say to you that the only phrase of the
present contest In Iowa which has at
tracted national attention is revision and
the success of the candidal* who takes it
upon himself to speak of the effects of the
Plngley tariff as robbery will be under
stood In every state of the Union as a
party defeat."

MOVEMENT OF RACES.
Bourke Cockran on the Pending Nat
uralization Bill.
Mr. Rourke Cockran (N. Y.). In the
House yesterday. In discussing certain
f.-atures of the naturalization bill, said that
he was asked once to name the man who
came nearest being 1l!s Ideal of a gentle
man. and having a pretty extensive ac
quaintance, covering almost the entire hu
man race, from the culprit at the foot
of the gallows to the pontiff on his throne,
he was compelled to admit that his con
ception of gentleman was "an unlettered,
naturalised laborer, who came to his work
every morning and who so impressed his
fellows with the conception of his excel
lence that he was always addressed per
nonally and was referred to in his absence
as Mr. Carey." He amassed quite a good
deal of money - $40,000 or $o0.00<>. He faced
death with perfect composure and majestic
calm, but always haunted by the tear
that some day he would be unable to do a
day's work."
Speaking of the educational test required
(or all aliens, Mr. Cockran said:
"TUe history of this country has illus
<?
trated a ?rreat many new methods of Bat
tling human problems. This Mr. Carey
would be excluded from citizenship or from
admission under this, or the law that la
projected, while Csolgolsz, Oulteau and
bands of assassins and murderers who
preach hostility to every good could pass !n
under the test that Is Imposed. I say that you
are opening wide the doors to the really ob
jectionable. You are damming up the val
uable current from which a large portion
of our prosperity flows, and I appeal to
gentlemen on both sides to realise this, that
the history of mankind in the past is the
one which was controlled by the moveg^nt
of races. It was the movement of races
that brought the barbarian tribes from the
provinces of the Roman empire and wrecWed
the monuments of the old civilization. It
was the search for land and the desire to
cultivate it that plunged all the nations in
war during the periods that are known as
the 'dark ages.' The pursuit of land, too,
was mainly to cultivate it, for men did not
realize they could obtain it under any other
conditions. We have left before the foot
steps of humanity this splendid truth."
REFUSED TO PUT APPEAL.
| Speaker Cannon Oblivious to Objec
tion to His Ruling.
What might have been a serious parlia
mentary snajl was dexterously avoided
by Speaker Cannon yesterday afternoon
in the House of Representatives when Mr.
Murphy (Mo.) rose to present what he
denominated a privileged resolution.
The conference reports on the rate and
statehood bills had been made and or
dered printed, when the Missouri repre
sentative presented a resolution rescind
ing the action of the House sending the
statehood bill to conference and provid
ing for a vote on the Senate amendments.
Mr. Payne (N. Y.), the floor leader of
the majority, instantly made the point
that the resolution was not privileged.
The Speaker, with smiting face, held
that the.resolution was not privileged, as
the papers in the case were with the Sen
ate, and he had serious doubt if the reso
lution would be privileged even if the
papers were with the House.
Confusion ensued, Mr. Murphy and a
number of democrats springing to their
feet to take exception to the ruling of
the Speaker.
Above the din Mr. Murphy was heard to
say: "Let's have a square deal, Mr.
Speaker. I appeal from the decision of
the chair," but the Speaker was oblivious
to the motion for an appeal and adjourn
ed fhe House at 5:30 until noon on Thurs
day on motion of Mr. Bonynge (Col.),
leaving Mr. Murphy gesticulating on the
I floor.
BAY STATE DEMOCRACY.
I Reported Gum-Shoe Movement
Among Leaders for Slate.
| Special Dispatch to The Star.
BOSTON, Mass., June 2.?While John B.
Moran is being urged by friends to run for
| governor on a people's ticket, a nomination
: which requires only 100 signatures, silent
I workers. among the democratic leaders have
| already quietly made up a slate which in
cludes two millionaires and one poor man,
I The millionaires are William L. Douglas
i ex governor and shoe manufacturer, for
governor; Henry M. Whitney, last year's
dt-mocratic nominee for governor and a Bos
ton financier, for lieutenant governor. The
poor man is John B. Moran, for attorney |
general.
Douglas' known ambition is to run for i
Coi gress, but no one has heard him say]
he would aecert a nomination for the gov
ernorship again. Mr. Whitney's attitude
is somewhAt peculiar, but "anything to lick (
the protectionists" is his slogan, and so I
thoroughly in earnest is he that any slate
arrangement will suit him provided there
is abundant opportunity for him to attack
I the anti-reclproclty iorcea. On paper tills
latest combination looks effective enough,
but it must be remembered that it is still
on paper.

Senator Penrose Spent a Good
While With Him.
WORRIED ABOUT HIS STATE
Depending on the President to Help
the Machine.
THE CONVENTION THIS WEEK
Threatened Fusion of Independents
With Democrats?Penrose Help
ing the President in the Senate.
Senator Penrose of Pennsylvania spent
a good while with President Roosevelt lost
night, being the only visitor of the even
ing. The political situation In Pennsyl
vania Is anything but satisfactory to the
republicans, and the organization In that
state Is depending upon the President to do
much toward rescuing them from a possible
defeat for governor, legislature and mem
bers of Congress. It was to help the organ
ization that the President promised to go to
Harrlsburg In October, Just before the No
vember election, to attend the laying of
the cornerstone of the state capttol. That
visit of the President Is expected to do
much toward holding up the regular
ticket.
Significant Facts.
There are one or two significant facts In
connection with the conference with Sen
ator Penrose last night. The first Is that
the republican state convention will be held
at Harrlsburg next Wednesday. The regu
lar organization Is confronted by an Inde
pendent republican ticket and a threatened
fusion of all the Independent forces with
the democrats. The nomination of a good
man by the state convention Is an Impera
tive necessity. If they select a man that
will command reform and Independent sup
port they may save the ticket. If they
nominate a man who has not the confidence
of this element they are almost sure to lose
out.
The situation is a critical one. The help
of the President is needed now as well as
in October next. Senator Penrose would
like to arrange things so that b? can give
the impres&lon to the republicans of the
state that the nominee of the convention
has the backing of President Roosevelt, and
the President Is said to be willing to help
the head of the organisation aa much as
possible without being regarded as losing
his reform ideas. Strangely enough the
President was tooth and ntill against the
Pennsylvania organization in the elections
last year and did not turn his hand to hflp
In any direction. EHhu Root, his premier
cabinet official, was one of the attorneys of
Mayor Weaver In the great reform fight
that was won by the reformers. Sltlce then
the discreet but astute Penrose has been
getting closer to the White House. What
he speaks of as his "social visits" are fre
quent, and the President seems to enjoy
them. The good understanding between the
President, heretofore the most reformed of
reformers, and the successor of the greatest
machine man the country ever knew, Quay,
has become a matter of frequent and Inter
esting comment. It is Penrose who is tak
ing care of the fight on Barnes In the Sen
ate and it is Penrose who has stood by the
President In a number of close fights In
the Senate.
Penrose a Reformer.
Penrose himself, though, has become a
reformer. He has nobly placed himself at
the head of the moral and reform forces of
the state. He proposes to let the people
nominate their own candidate for governor,
or at least make them think that they have
done so. Naturally so good a reformer as
Senator Penrose looks to the White House
to aid In carrying forward the betterment
of political conditions and the advancement
of mankind in moral and political methods.
Senator Penrose didn't care to talk about
it at all last night. But he sc-emed to be
satisfied.
The coming convention is to adopt some
resolutions that may be of Importance, and
the suggestion is made that the Pennsyl
vania senator has not only consulted the
President as to the right sort of a man to
nominate for governor, but as to the reso
lutions the convention will adopt.
"PENNSY" TRAIN ACCIDENT.
Locomotive Jumped Track and Plung
ed Off Bridge Into River.
NEW TORK, June 2.?The locomotive of

that either the prisoners have a trial Im
mediately or be released on bonds.
"Resolved, That a copy of these resolu
tions be wired to President Roosevelt and
Senator Patterson at Washington."
The resolution on the Cananea riots fol
lows:
"Whereas the telegraphic dispatches
herald the fact that the Mexicans in Cana
nea, Mexico, asked for an Increase of
wages and through these attempts for
better conditions, violation Is now rampant
in Mexico; and,
"Whereas the Western Federation of
Miners recognizes the class struggle
throughout the world, and know no race
or creed in the battle for industrial free
dom; therefore, be it
"Resolved, That, while we deplore the loss
of life and property, the Western Federa
tion of Miners, in convention assembled,
sends greetings to the Mexicans, trusting
that their efforts for a higher standard of
living will be crowned with success."

ON THE REPUBLICAN SIDE
Credit Taken for Making the Bill
Constitutional.
THE SENATE AMENDMENTS
Were Practically Adopted?Details
of the Sections?Bepresentative
Hepburn's Statement.
The agreement of the conferees on the
railroad rate bill has simplified the entire
legislative program of Congress and has
set the political leaders to thinking over
the division of honors In the passage of that
measure, some phases of which on both the
republican and democratic sides have been
denounced In violent language.
Senator TlHman declared only a few days
ago, when he stated that he would vote for
the bill with the broad; court review amend
ment that had been agreed upon on the
republican side, that he had never voted
for any bill with so great a feeling of mis
giving. Now It Is whispered about that
the South Carolina senator would like to
have his name branded on that "child,"
as he often referred to It In his remarks.
In fact it Is apt to be known as the Hep
burn-Tillman bill, and if that name Is given
to it the South Carolina senator is not at
all likely to disavow the child as he has
often threatened to do.
Making the Bill Constitutional.
On the republican side credit is taken for
making the bill constitutional, as many of
the ablest lawyers of the 8enate declared
that it would not stand a test before the
Supreme Court of the United States had
not the broad court review amendment that
was so strongly opposed by the President
up to the time he agreed to it been adopted.
The fact Is well recognized that the bill
contains many provisions that will do any
party good if it can lay claim to them, but
the division of creoit between the two parties
is so well defined that it will be hard to ex
plain it all on the stump. There are some
two-edged swords in the bill, and later on
there may be an effort to shift responsi
bility in some cases as well as efforts to
claim it in others.
In the matter of passes, for Instance, tne
conferees struck om the paragraph relating
to them which contained many exceptions,
including the great body of 2,000.000 rail
road employes, and adopted a straight anti
pass amendment without any exceptions
whatever. There is sure to be some spar-,
ring in the Senate and House to fix the re
sponsibility for that provision, and sugges
tions are now heard that there is apt to be
resentment in that large class of voters
that many take some tangible shape In tne
next congressional election. But how the
resentment will be directed is not clear, ex
cept that Senator Culberson has been re
garded as the leading exponent of the
clean-cut anti-pass amendment. But as it
is In accordance with what is said to be a
strong sentiment In Texas, it is not likely to
cause the Texas senator any personal in
convenience.
Pipe-Line Provision.
The pipe-line provision was confined to I
oil by the action of the conferees, and all
reference to other commodities was stricken
from the bill. In that shape it will affect
chiefly the Standard Oil Company, which
is the owner of the great pipe lines of the
country, except that the Independent oil
refining industry also has quite an exten
sive system of pipe lines extending from
the oil region of Pennsylvania to the sea
board. Just how that provision of the bill
will work out is yet to be seen.
The elimination of the "Jim Crow cars
provision Is extremely welcome to the col
ored people, who have been stirred up over
it as they claimed they gained nothing
by it while It gave federal sanction to the
"Jim' Crow" cars of the south engaged in
interstate business, and would promote the
extension of the system In the north. This
amendment was urged by Senator TiUman,
who finally let it go with an agreement
that the clause requiring Ave days' notice
to the commission of any injunction, inter
locutory order or decree suspending or re
straining the enforcement of an order of
the commission on hearing. These two
Senate amendments were the last that were
fought over by the conferees.
In practically all essential details the
conferees on the railroad rate bill agreed
to the measure as it was passed by the
Senate. The report was signed at about
4pm., and almost immediately presented
to both houses. It shows that the Senate
receded from six amendments, two of which
merely change the numbers of sections,
while twenty-eight of its amendments were

THE STATEHOOD BILL
Conference Report Presented
in the Senate.
STATEMENT BY MAJORITY
For&ker Amendment Accepted With
out Change.
THE OHIO SEHATOR'S NOTICE
Will Move to Disagree nod Instruct
Conferees to Insist on Senate
Amendments.
As foreseen in The Star yesterday after*
noon, the conference report on the state
hood bill, which had been previously agreed
upon, was presented In the Senate by Sen
ator Beveridge, who asked that it be print
ed and lie over for future consideration.
The report was unanimous nave on what
Senator Patterson, one of the democratio
conferees, termed "thecrucial point,' which
is the Joint statehood provision for ..rlsnna
and New Mexico. On this point the minor
ity members disagreed. They refused t?
accede to the terms of the House bill,
which they say provides "elaborate ma
chinery" for the coming election, and "IB
Intended to coerce voters to favor Joint
statehood."
The democrats said there would be vig
orous opposition to the conference report
in the Senate.
Statement by the Majority.
The following statement was made by the
majority members of the conference:
"The conference report gives flfty-tlve del
egates to the Indian Territory, fifty-five to
Oklahoma and one to the Osage Indian res
ervation.
"It strikes out the Warren amendment,
which permitted the mineral school land*
of Oklahomr to be taken up by miners, and
provides Instead that the lands shall be
kept by the state of Oklahoma for Its
schools: that they shall not be sold until
11(15. and in the rpeantime the school board
of the new state may lease the lands and
the proceeds thereof to go Into the school
funds of the state.
"The capital is temporarily located at
Guthrie until 1H1M. after which the people
at an election to be provided by the legis
lature will fix the capital permanently, but
the legislature Is not permitted to appro
priate any money for any permanent cap
ital buildings at Guthrie in the meantime.
"New Mexico and Arflona are permitted
to vote separately, its provided by the
amendment introduced by Senator Foraker
lasit year and adopted by the Senate, and
as reintroduced by Senator Foraker this
year. It simply provides that the consti
tution of the new state shall be submitted
to an election of the people on Nuvemi>er
0, and If a majority of the people of either
territory vote against the constitution it
fails.
"The conference' committee accepted the
Foraker amendment without change."
Trying to Get Together.
The next two or three days will be de
voted by the adherents of the two factions
In the Senate to drumming up strength for
their respective contentions. Senator
Foraker will lead the fight for his subse
quent amendment, which contemplates giv
ing Arlxona the right by vote at a special
election, to say whether she will hitch up
with New Mexico In Joint statehood. He
will be supported by a number of demo
crats. The outcome of the contest is in
doubt at this stage, even Senator Beve
rldge. while hopeful, admitting that there
Is no absolute surety of a majority in fa
vor of the conference report.
There are two elements of doubt in the
situation. The first is what will the Sen
ate do with the agrement and the second
Is what will the House do If the Senate re
fuses to accede to the conference agree
ment? There are big politics in the game
for the republicans and the democrats It
is certain the statehood legislation will be
used In the coming congressional campaign.
The democrats are trying to make capital
and the republicans trying to resolve their
differences of opinion without allowing the
democrats to make capital.
There is considerable talk about friction
between the House and Senate and about
saving the pride of the Speaker and of the
Senate, respectively. The republican poli
ticians, however, know that the country
will hold the republican administration re
sponsible for the outcome and can not dif
ferentiate between the petty squabbles of
the House and Senate. So the managers
In the two bodies are striving to get to
gether, while the democrats are endeavor
ing to keep them apart.
What May Happen.
If the Senate refuses to concur In the
conference report the fight will shift to
the House again. It is threatened that if
t'he conference report is rejected the Sen
ate will add an amendment to some ap
propriation bill providing for the admission
of Oklahoma and Indian Territory and
omitting all reference to Arizona ai d New
Mexico. In that event there are threats
that the House would hold up the appro
priation bill until the Senate accedes.
It is considered quite probable that It
the Senate rejects the conference agree-'
ment a long and bitter contention will
arise between the two houses.
SENTENCED FOR THIRD TIME.
Murderers of the Carter Children to
Hang July 13.
VALDOSTA, Ga, June 2?For the third
time since the murder of th<? Carter chil
dren J. G. Kawlings and his sons M:lton and
Jesse and Alf Moore, colored, have been
sentenced to hang. The date fixed is Fri
day, July 13.
Judge Mitchell asked each of them it
they had anything to say why the sentence
of the court should not be pronounced and
both of the boys responded In short talks
In which they asserted their Innocence and
stated that their lives had been sworn away
by Alf Moore and Carter.
J. G. Rawlings made quite a lengthy
speecii to the court, in which l.e declared
that his boys had nothing to do with the
killing. He said that they had not had a
fair trial and they had not been treated
right; that their conviouon was me result
of misrepresentation on the part of those
who had testified against the boys. Rawl
ings spoke entirely for the boys and made
no reference to himself.
Alf Moore had little to say except that he
had told the truth at the trial and that he
believed that God will be pleased with what
he had done.
