UNABLE TO FIND WATSON Vote of New Senator From West Virginia Would Have Given Victory to Opposition. The Vic? President yesterday afternoon twice exercised his rarely obtained rig lit to vote in the Senate, and saved the Gal linger ocean mail subsidy bill from de feat. And lie was then called upon to exercise the same prerogative a third time to save the "old guard" from allow | ing the resolution for direct election of ! senators to become the unfinished busi ness and to he voted upon before the close of the session. It was the first time In the history of the Senate that the Vice President has voted three times in one day. and more than a decade has elapsed since the Vice President has cast a single vote. Subsidy Up to House. The ocean mail subsidy, passed by the Senate by a voto of 10 to 39, counting the vote of the Vice President in its fa vor. is now up to the House, where it was received today. The vote in the | House, If the measure comes to a vote ! this session, will probably l>e almost as j close as that in the Senate. The last time ! a subsidy measure passed the House it | was by a majority of one vote, and each side is claiming it has gained since then. The close vote on the subsidy measure came about because thirteen republicans unitrd with the democrats hi voting against the measure. The thirteen were i Senators Beveridge of Indiana, Borah of Idaho, Bourne of Oregon, Bristow of I Kansas, Brown of Nebraska, Burton of j Ohio, Crawford of South Dakota, Cum-1 ! mine of Iowa, Gamble of South Dakota, i Gronna of North Dakota, Da Foi.ette of : Wisconsin, McCumber 01 North Dakota j .and Smith of Michigan. I Only live senators were absent and not 'voting, Senators Aidrich of Rhode island, Clapp of Minnesota. Davis of Arkansas, Sutherland of Utah and Watson of West Virgin.a. The vote of the new demo cratic senator from West Virginia, Mr. Watson, would have been sufficient to de feat the measure. Refused to Make Pair. The democrats on the floor appealed to the republicans who were supporting the measure to pair him, but the republicans . saw how close was the vote and refused j to make a pair that would cut town their voting strength. Then efforts we:e made to reach Mr. Watson, but the attempt was in vam. He nad voted on one of the ? early roll calls, when an amendment was at ixsue, and had voted witu the other democrats. On the next r'dl call Senator I Scott announced that his ?olie<igue w?s aosent "on important business ; out il. tle importance was attacned to tne an nouncement because the- vote was not close. But as the afternoon wore on ana the votes became clv.se and then a lie, she democrats did tneir level best to hnu him. The measure was taken up at 2 o'clock for linal passage, and the supporters of i the bill then expressed confidence that ! their victory would be an easy one. Son ! at or Simmons opened the rtnal discus sion with an attack on the measure, and i he was followed by Senator Shlvely. The Indiana senator proposed an amendment that the amount of subsidy should be paid from the profits of carrying the foreign mails, after deducting the cost of railroad transportation to seaboard. The first vote of the afternoon came' on that amendment and it was lost, to ! ?10. That was thought to be a test vote j and the supporters of the Galllnger meas ure felt reassured. It turned out that some senators who were opposed to the general policy of subsidy voted against that amendment and with the supporters of the main bill. Their votes were later cast agaisst the bill itself, making the vote a tie. Defeated by Close Vote. The second vote of the afternoon came on a substitute of Senator Stone, provid ing practically for "free ships." Foreign built ships owned exclusively by Amer icans and used in the foreign trade, .it provided, were to be allowed an American registry. The vote on the Stone substi tute was closer than that on the Shively amendment, .".7 voting for it and 39 against it. An amendment offered by Senator Jones, limiting the benefits of the bill to 'boats hereafter built, was defeated <5n a viva voce t ote. Then the question was on the adoption of the Ga linger substitute?the main bill?in committee of the whole. Those who watched the-roll tall saw that the vote was close, and they awaited the announcement in intense silence. "On the motion of the senator from New Hampshire the yeas are 39 and the nays are 39," announced Vice President Sherman. "The chair votes in the af firmative, the yeas have it and the sub stitute is adopted." How Senators Voted. The votes were cast as follows: For the Galllnger bill?Bradley, Brande gee, Briggs, Burkett, Burnham, Burrows, Carter, Clark of Wyoming, Crane, Cul lom, Curtis, Dick, Di lingham, Dixon, du Pont, Flint, Frye, Galllnger, Guggenheim, Hale, Heyburn, Jones, Kean, Lodge, Ix>rimrr, Nelson.

Smith of Maryland, Smith of South Carolina, Stone, Swan son, Taliaferro, Taylor, Terrell, Thornton and Tillman. Republicans. 13; democrats, 26. Total, 15ight senators were paired?Mr. Bulko ley of Connecticut with Mr. Bailey of Texas, Mr. De-pew of New York with" Mr. Gore of Oklahoma. Mr. Young of Iowa with Mr. Money of Mississippi and Mr. Richardson of Delaware with Mr. Rayner of Maryland. Five senators did not vote and were not paired?Aidrich of Rhode Island, Clapp of Minnesota, Davis of Arkansas, Sutherland of Utah and Wat son of West Virginia. It was then that the democrats realized the importance of Mr. Watson's vote and : made their efforts to have him paired or i have him return to the Senate. Final Vote a Tie. The bill was reported from the com mittee of the whole to the Senate Imme diately following, and when the vote was taken on final passage the Senate again stood tied and Vice President Sherman voted for the bill, passing it. Confusion immediately followed the an nouncement of the vote. Several senators tried to get the recognition of the chair but the Vice President recognized Senator Nelson. He moved that one of President Taffs conservation bills?that for the leasing of coal and coal lands in Alaska be made the unfinished business. Senator Borah, who wanted to get the resolution for direct election of senators made the unfinished business, asked if the motion was subject to amendment "It is not," ruled the Vice President Senator Borah then called for the yeas and nays. There was doubt as to the outcome and Mr. Hale did not want to take any ehanoes. He moved that the Senate adjourn. Senator Borah imme diately demanded a roll call. For the third time during the afternoon the Senate was in a tie, the vote belnsy ^7 j A Big Manufacturer's Surplus Of $2.50 and $3 Grade Women's Boots at - - - The Price-concession at which these good Shoes were offered us was too good to resist?even at ' Stock Clearance Time."

The bill passed yesterday is the Gal linger modified substitute to the old ship subsidy bill and amendatory of the pres ent ocean mall law. It provides for a bounty of $4 and $2 a mile, respectively, to American ships of the second and third class operating' between American ports*and ports of China, Japan, Aus tralasia and South American ports so^th of the equator. This bounty is to be paid only for the outward-bound voyage. Ships operating from North Atlantic ?ports, in order to receive the bounty, are required to touch at at least one port of call on the Atlantic coast south of Cape Charles for mail, freight and passengers. The hill limits the amount of the sub sidy to be paid in any one year to $4,000, ; GO0, and further, that it shall not exceed ! the amount of money received on account of foreign mails. It is explicitly declared that no contract shall be awarded to any person or cor ?poration engaged in any competitive uans-ioi tation by rail or who is employed in exporting or importing merchandise in his own behalf.
