"Whether or not universal transfers shall be provided in the District rests with the House of Representatives, the Senate yesterday afternoon having given its ap proval to the Gallinger-Commissioners' bill "to require all street railway com panies in the District of Columbia to is sue free transfers, interchangeable from the lines of one company to those of another." The passage of the universal transfer measure by the Senate was reported to the House this afternoon, and the bill was immediately referred to the House District committee. There is believed to be a majority on that committee in favor of such legislation, and little delay in favorable action is expected. The House also is thought to be favorable to such a bill. Before many weeks elapse, it is predicted, a universal transfer measure will be presented at the White House for the signature of the President. Not One Dissenting Voice. No dissenting voice was raised while the measure was before the Senate yes terday afternoon, and the ease with which it passed the upper house put smiles on' tlie countenances of some of those who have known of the years of efTort to have Congress act on the. universal trans fer measure. Shortly before 4 o'clock yesterday after noon Representative Sims of Tennessee, who has been active in the fight for uni versal transfers in the District for years, walked into the Senate chamber. Sen ator Galllnger saw him, greeted him pleasantly, and at the end of a whispered conference both laughed heartily. Sen ator Gallinger walked over to his desk and in a few minutes asked that the Senate take up the universal transfer bill. There was no objection, and the Senate lingered over it just long enough for the clerk to read the bMl and the committee amendments and for the Vice President to put the formal motions. Satisfactory to Senator Works. Senator Works had announced that he would make a fight for the citizens' con ference bill on the floor of the Senate, if necessary, but the Gallinger-Commlssion ers' bill had been so amended in the committee as to be practically satisfac tory to Mm. So he made no attempt to change it or to press the citizens' con ference bill. The bill provides that within thirty days after its passage the street rail ways in the District shall issue free re ciprocal transfers from the lines of one company to those of another, "provided that said companies shall have the right to stipulate that such transfers shall be used only in continuation of a trip In one general direction within the District of Columbia to prevent passengers from traveling from one point to another and return on one fare; and provided, further, that the existing system of transfers cn the lines, respectively, of the Ca. ital Traction Company and the Washington Railway and Electric Company shall be continued and made permanent." These provisos differ from those in the original bill, and were framed, through amendments recommended by the Senate District committee, to allow the Issuance of a transfer on a transfer, proviuing the passenger continues to ride in the same general direction. Division of the Fares. The street railway companies are to agree among themselves as to the divi sion of fare, but if they do not. the Com missioners are given that power, after notice and heating, subject to em appeal by interested parties to the District Su preme Court. During that appeal, how ever, the findings of the Commissioners are to remain in full force and effect. The Commissioners are given power to regu'ate the issuance of transfers and to enforce the law in any court of compe tent jurisdiction. Every street railway or employe!, who refuses to issue a transfer, in accord ance with the law, is subject to a fine of between $10 and $40 for each offense, on information filed in the Police Court. The bill a& passed yesterday was the same as indorsed by the Federation of Citizens' Associations after it had been drafted by the Commissioners of the Dis trict of Columbia. A bill indorsed by the citizens' conference on universal trans fers provided that the fflres be divided equally between the roads. The Com missioners' bill passed yesterday In dorsed by the federation provided that the fares should be divided Jjy the Com missioners upon such equitable basis as they should see fit.

On the first actual test of strength be- j tween the Roosevelt boomers and the supporters of President Taft for renom ination the Taft forces won a smashing victory. This occurred at Coalgate, Okla., yesterday, when the republican conven tion of the fourth congressional district indorsed Taft by a vote of 118 to 32. It was a straightaway contest between the Roosevelt and Taft factions and a clear show-down. The Roosevelt people were organized under the leadership or Edward Perry, chairman of the district committee, while James A. Harris led the administration forces. Some Rough Rider features introduced by the Roosevelt side failed to impress the gathering. Before the convention a balloon was loosed on which was print ed in large letters "Roosevelt," while the balloonist before descending unfuried a flag carrying the legend "He will ianSv" After the convention was organized a small boy in Rough Rider costume rode a horse up the center alt'.e of Convention Hall and upon reaching the stage took off hU sombrero and shouted: "1 want Teddy." C. W. Miller and G. A. Ram sey were named as the flrst two delegates to be elected thus far to the coming re publican national convention. James A. Harris was indorsed for national com mitteeman. The victory of the Taft forces was complete and created the greatest enthusiasm. Gov. Stubbs of Kansas yesterday made public a telegram sent to Col. Roosevelt last Monday urging him to make an an nouncement of his candidacy. Gov. Stubbs' telegram read: "The demand for your candidacy is be coming more urgent daily, and in Kansas is overwhelming and ^mong all classes of the people. The meeting of committees and the calling of caucuses and primaries to select delegates to congressional and state conventions, which in turn will elect delegates to Hie republican national convention, are near at hand. "Your friends throughout the middle west are eagerly waiting to hear you say that you will accept the nomination for President if it comes to you as a genuine demand from the people without your | seeking it or taking any action yourself to secure the place. I believe you owe it1 to the American people to make a public statement concerning this matter, and am writing you because of the lateness of the day and on behalf of a vast majority of the republicans of Kansas, and urjje | you to give us this definite statement by wire." Gen. Felix Agnus, editor of the Balti more American and one of the war horses of the republican party, published an edi torial In his paper this morning on the Roosevelt boom, which said, in part: "It is time that serious attention were given the efforts to force upon the party a third-term candidate. Theodore Roose velt is a presidential impossibility. "Washington would not accept u third term; Grant could not secure it; Roose velt will not have the opportunity to gain this distinction. "The party should not be distracted by a fallacious issue; it should not be as sailed through the anxiety of certain per sons to get toack at Mr. Taft. It should not be subjected to the injection of a dlstintegrating proposal, and one that, designedly or otherwise, plays into ths bands of the democratic party." StJUlftin J. Bryan yesterday gave out a statement on the Wilson-Harvey inci dent which said, in part: "The recent break between Gov. Wil son and Col. Harvey illustrates the im possibility of co-operation between men who look at public questions from differ ent points of view. Col. Harvey became a supporter of Mr. Wilton when he was selected as the democratic candidate for Kovernor of New Jersey, and he contin ued his support when Gov. Wilson began to be discussed ay a candidate for the presidency. Of course, it is absurd for Col. Harvey's friends to talk about his 'bringing Gov. Wilson out.' No man or paper could have made Gov. Wilson available as a candidate if he himself had not attracted attention. It would have been impossible for Col. .Harvey to have prevented a discussion of Gov. Wilson's availability. ? ? ? ? "It must pain Gov. Wilson to break with his old friends, but the breaks must necessarily come unless he turns back or they go forward. 'A man is known by the company he keeps," and he cannot keep company with those going in oppo site directions. Gov. Wilson must pre pare himself for other desertions?they will distress him. but there. Is abundant consolation of duty well done." The Baltimore American has polled the Maryland legislature, securing the pref erence of democrats and republicans for President. The result was: Republicans?For Taft, 22; for Roose velt, 1G; for La Follette. 1. Democrats?For Harmon, 20; for Wil son, 15; for Clark, 10;\ for Underwood, 2; for Bryan, 1. Gov. Wilson and Speaker Clark showed more strength in the outside counties than did Gov. Harmon. Among the democrats. Speaker Clark ranked first as second < holce. He seemed to be a compromise candidate between Wilson and Harmon. Gov. Hadley of Missouri came out yes terday strongly for the nominatioh of Col. Theodore Roosevelt for President by the republicans. In a statement which he issued he said, in part: "From information that has recently come to me from all parts of the state I am convinced that a large majority of the republicans are in favor of the nomination of Theodore Roosevelt as our candidate for President, and a large ma jority of t>ie people are in favor of his election. "While they hold Mr. Taft in high es teem and are not unmindful of the many good things that have been, accomplished during his administration, they feel that the candidacy of Col. Roosevelt will in sure success in the state and nation in the coming campaign. "While 1 will oppose, as I know he would oppose, any efforts to obtain dele gates in favor of his nomination by po litical manipulation, I will also oppose any political manipulation in this state to prevent it." Republican Clubs to Hear Taft. President Tuft will be one of the speakers at the annual dinner of the League of Republican State Clubs at the New Wlllard Hotel the night of February 10. The other speakers will be Charles D. Hilles, secretary to the Pres ident; Charles W. Fairbanks of Indiana, Gov. Hadley of Missouri, Gov.
