economy with ourselves-. The amount I have mentioned Is sufficient to pay our mileage." . . . ? Representative Sharp of Ohio said 20 cents a mile for representatives, the ex isting rate, is 15 cents too much, and he favored the cut. Former Speaker Cannon spoke on the subject. He used sarcasm when he said: "I am a multimillionaire, and people t,av I made it as a member of the House. *'I want to say that expenses of long campaigning?I've drawn a quarter of a million of dollars from public funds, and 1 want to say I've spent one-half a mil lion. How did I get it? Oh, I had a modest competency in black Illinois land. "I've never apologized for the salaries I've received. I do want to say I have but little patience with the proposition that splits hairs on the little question of mileage? the money that brings our families here. % "That kind of economy doesn t bring votes. In every Congress I've seen much agonizing to get rid of this mileage." Mr. Cannon spoke of Representative Holman, the "watchdog of the Treas ury," who opposed a mileage appropri ation for an extra session. Favors Even Larger Salaries. "The House overruled him, and I met his daughter that day. who, with tears In hor eyes, said her father was wrong and that I was in the right." Speaking of the democratic economies, Mr. Cannon said: "The country hasn't raid any more at tention to your economies than it has to a last year's bird's nest. We earn our salaries. Tf I had my way I'd in crease our salaries, especially that part whi'-h enables us to keep track of our business." Mr. Cannon was referring to the clerks. Representative Sherley of Kentucky of fered an amendment to limit the mileage to actual cost of members and the im mediate family. "I have never felt it justifiable to pay ourselves extra salaries under the guise of mileage. It also creates an Inequality among members. I am not willing to give to representatives who live in dis tant points, a greater salary than to other members." Twenty-Cent Rate Upheld. Representative Sharp held up a photo graph of twelve children. "Would you allow these children, all belonging to a member of this House, to travel on the mileage of a member?" "Yes," said Mr. Sherley, "and I'd give a citizen of the sort that father is a little fxtra." Representative Fitzgerald said that in all his thirteen years in the House he had seen the same sort of argument*! forward ed almost yearly?but the House always i-oted to sustain the mileage rate of 130 rents. . Representative Mann interposed for about one minute. Representative Fitzgerald said: "If the gentleman will not take up my rime he will hasten the end of this ses sion of Congress.'* Representative Fitzgerald said the coun :ry has acquiesced in the mileage rate. The Sherley amendment was lost. The Page amendment was also lost by a vote >f 4;i yeas to 110 nays. The House upheld lie rule of 20 cents a mile for representa :ives. No liaise for Phone Girls. Representative Garner of Texas offered in amendment to raise the pay of the lieht telephone operator in the House 'rom J720 to J00O. He said that other >perators in the House receive $900. Rep 'esentative Fitzgerald, chairman of the appropriations committee, which boasted 5f but a single raise in pay in the whole Dill, covering 14,877 salaries, opposed the dea with a technical point?and won. The salary will not be raised by the House. Representative Hamlin of Missouri ob jected to the appropriation for only three assistant' engineers in the House office building. He said the work required four assistants. letters which he pre *ented depicted a bad state in the engine ?oom of the House office building as :om pared to the Senate side. "There is a man in that engine room ivho has been there for twenty-five years. He is very competent, and though he is carried as a laborer he puts In his .imp really as an engineer. Klllott Wood ;ays the man is needed, and the man ;peak of ought not to be compelled to* io the work of an engineer a la borer's salary." Hamlin Proposition Lost. . r The Hamlin proposition was lost, a re sult in keeping with the democratic idea -*?t to piovide any advances in salaries This idea was further shown when Rep -esentative LafTerty of Oregon asked the House to insert an amendment to pay 5500 a year for the services of the clerks :o the committee on mileage. Mr. L*f erty said R. C. Collins, clerk to Robert E. Lee of Pennsylvania, has been doing the work of the committee on mileage !or nothing. "Collins is a bureau of information in ?nileage affairs," said Mr. iAfferty. "He >ught not to be expected to serve for lothing." The '.dea of an extra expense did not ippeal to the House. The matter was iost on a point of order. Mleged Confession of Lewis Denithorne Fails to Bring Conviction. WEST CirESTER, Pa., May 3.?Lewis Denithorne of Phoenixville. Pa., who was placed on trial in the Chester county rourt yesterday, charged with second de ;ree murder in connection with the lynch- j ng of Zach Walker at Coatesvllle last Vugust, was acquitted by a Jury today. The principal evidence against Denithorne vas a confession he was alleged to have nade to the police, in which he admitted ?articipating in the lynching. Counsel for the accused man declared o the Jury that Denithorne was weak ninded and that the Jurors should not ;ive his confession much weight. Judge Butler, who presided at the trial, . sxpressed surprise and appeared ag ;rieved at the verdict, declaring to the ury that he regarded it as a public ca umity to law and order in this state. Five Others Await Trial. Another defendant, Louis Keyser, was it once placed on trial on a like charge, rhere are five others awaiting trial. ' Six men were tried last fall for murder 'or participating in the lynching, but all vere acquitted. District Attorney Sproat >f ?*hester county is being assisted in the ?ases by the former district attorney of he county, whose term expired while !<>me of the cases were pending, and by Deputy State Attorney General Cunning lam. After the Jury had brought in a verdict if not guilty in the case of l^ewis Deni horne, the commonwealth asked for the icquittal of the other five defendants. The accused men were then discharged. VmonK them were Chief of Police Umsted >f Coatesvllle and Stanley Howe, a police nan, who were charged with man slaughter and neglect of their duties Froebel Memorial Proposed.

C-, for Frederick Froebel, the German ?ducator and founder of the kindergarten lysteni, was scheduled for discussion be fore the closing session of the Inter national .Kindergarten Association here ate today.

WILL ACT WITH DISTRICT Problem of Caring for Suburban Befuse to Be Considered. OFFICIALS ABE PLEASED Bock Creek and Anacostia Valleys Will Be More Sanitary if Plans Carry. The threatened delay in providing sew age disposal facilities f or Montgomery and Prince Georges counties, Md.t which drain Into the Anacostia and Rock Creek valleys of the District of Columbia, may be avoided as a result of Gov. Golds borough of Maryland having appointed a committee of citizens to confer with rep resentatives of the District to study the situation and make a report to the legis lature at its next session. Appointed on the committee are Jackson H. Ralston, J*. I* Dent, Prof. John R Cassidy, T. Howard Duckett, J. Enos Ray and Charles A. Fox, representing Prince Georges county, and Dr. James Dudley Morgan, William T. S. Curtis, Dr. John L?. Lewis, J. Dawson Williams, represent ing Montgomery county, and Dr. William H. Welch, president, and Dr. Marshall K Price, secretary, respectively, of the Maryland state board of health. Delayed by Legislature. The Maryland legislature, at its recent session, passed a bill memorializing Con gress to appoint a committee for the District of Columbia to confer with a similar body representing Montgomery and Prince Georges counties to study the problem of providing proper disposal of sewago in those counties. In the last hours of the session the legislature failed to pass the bill naming the members of the Maryland committee. The proposed undertaking, as a result, faced an interminable delay, but the Montgomery County Medical Society shortly afterward passed a resolution re questing the Maryland state board of health to take what action it could look ing toward the appointment of a com mittee to confer with the ?committee to be appointed by Congress. The Medical Society meeting, in turn, was followed by a meeting held April 25 at the office of Attorney Jackson H. Ralston, in Washington, which was at tended by citizens of Montgomery and Prince Georges counties. A subcommittee, consisting of Dr. James Dudley Morgan, Preston B. Ray, Dr. William H. Welqh, Dr. Marshall L. Price, William T. S. Cur tis and Mr. Ralston, was appointed to confer with Gov. Goldsborough and re quest that he appoint a committee to take the place of the one proposed in the bill which failed to pass the legislature. The committee appeared before Gov. Golds borough at Annapolis and he granted the request, the personnel of the committee appointed being almost the same as that proposed in the bill. Officials Are Gratified. The Maryland executive has not for warded to Congress the bill memorialis ing it to appoint & committee for the District of Columbia, but it is likely that he Kill <lo'so at an early date. Distrtct officials, Including Asa E. Phil lips, superintendent of sewers, today ex pressed gratification over Gov. Goldsbor ough's action. They believe that any leg islation to be recommended by the joint committee will be given serious consider ation by the Maryland legislature when it meets two years hence. The general plan under consideration is for the Maryland authorities to build sewers to the District line, where the sewage will be emptied into interceptors built by the District and untimately dis posed of by the District. This will pre vent the sewage of the Maryland commu nities from draining Into the Anacostia and Rock Creek valleys, and should, In the opinion of local officials, greatly im prove the sanitary condition of the val leys. ALLEN CASE TESTIMONY INDICATES CONSPIRACY Witness Says Sidna and Vic tor Reached for Revolvers Day Before Tragedy. WYTHEVILLE, May 3.?The common wealth today, in the trial of Floyd Allen, charged specifically with the murder of Prosecutor William M. Foster in the Carroll county court at Hillsville last March, attempted to prove that conspir acy existed between the Aliens to shoot up the court if Floyd Allen, then on trial, was convicted. Evidence was given that Sidna Allen, brother of Floyd, and Victor Allen, son of Floyd, were preparing the day before the tragedy to carry this intention into effect, and only the report of a disagree ment of the jury on that day prevented the Allen clansmen from starting the shooting at that time. Cyrus Phibbs, a civil engineer, testi fied that Sidna and Victor Allen had made preparations to begin the shooting March 13. He said that while the jury were filing into their places that day to make their return after deliberating on Floyd Allen's case he saw Sidna and Victor Allen walk to the rear of the bar and reach for their revolvers. When the foreman reported that the jury had fail ed to reach an agreement ttie two men went back to their seats. The day fol lowing the Jury, after further delibera tion, returned a verdict of guilty and the shooting began. Heard Threats by Floyd. George W. Edwards testified that he had heard Floyd Allen threaten to "knock a hole" in the Carroll county court On cross-examination he said he was not on friendly terms with Floyd Allen. "I'll kill Bill Foster be/ore the sun goes down tomorrow night If I'm convicted." Floyd Allen was charged with making this remark before the shooting March 14. according to the testimony yesterday afternoon of I. B. Weddell of Montgom ery. On cross-examination Weddell stuck to his fctory, although he admitted no other persons were present during his conver sation with Allen. BEFUSES TO SEE BEBELS.

PASO, Tex., May 3.?Secretary of State Knox passed through here today on his way to California He declined to receive a delegation of Mexican rebel representatives who wished to discuss with him the subject of the recognition of their belligerency.

IN THE Special Features Section OF THE SUNDAY STAR RACE TO BE CLOSE Returns of Fly Swatters Indi cate Hard Contest. INSECTS ARE NOW SCARCE Weather Unfavorable to Their Eapid Development. ALL SECTIONS INTERESTED Children in Crusade of Extermina tion Are From All Parts of Washington. The race in The Star's "Swat the fly" contest this month is going to he close, if the relative standing of the contestants at the close of the first two days of the contest is maintained. The prediction ot health officials that the scarcity of flies would hold the scores down and make the competition close is being fulfilled. As was the case on Wednesday, the opening day of the campaign. Dr. Mur ray yesterday was at the campaign head quarters, room 8, of the municipal build ing, from 3 to 3 p.m., receiving the flies brought in and entering the scores to the credit of the contestants. The competi tors were from every part of the city and the results showed that flies generally are scarce and thai the insects, on ac count of unfavorable weather, have not developed more rapidly in one section than in another. Expects Hard Contest. "Unless flies come on in abundance by the end of the month," said Dr. Murray today, "there are going to be some neck and-neck finishes in the race this month. A few flies may change the standing of any of the contestants. Children who have not yet entered still have a good chance to get in the contest and capture the first prize. It is my opinion that the contest will be close during the entire month." Announcement of the standing of the contestants probably will not be made be fore next week, and 1t is doubtful if, dur ing the five months' campaign, the stand ing of the competitors will be announced by Dr. Murray oftener than once a \ month. Dr. Murray has received an in vitation to address the Teachers' and Parents' Association of the Webster School May 8 relative to the campaign. Thousands of Premises Cleaned Up by Children Twelve thousand premises were cleaned up by the pupils of the white schools of the District last month, according to an nouncement today. School officials are now at work to ascertain the results of the juvenile crusade which was conduct ed in addition to the clean-up campaign authorized by the District Commissioners. As soon as the colored schools have been heard from, the complete report will be forwarded to Dr. Arthur L. Murray, sec retary of the campaign, for transmission to the Commissioners. . The clean-up-at-home crusade, con ducted by the school children, was direct ed entirely toward improving the sanitary conditions of the premises where the children reside. It commenced several days in advance of the clean-up cam paign proper, which began April 15. The children were provided with cards, fur nished by The Star, on which they were to certify the fact that they had cl?aa ed the premises where they reside. According to the cards returned by the PRIZES FOR MAY. First Prlw 925.00 Second Prise f 15.00 Third Prise 910.00 Fourth Prise 95.00 Five Prises of 91.00 Each.. 95.00 Total 960.00 ESSATS.

When the report from the colored schools is complete, this number will have been considerably augmented. Dr. Murray today sent out notices to members of the central committee, which directed the clean-up campaign, to tho effect that a meeting of the committee will be held next Tuesday at 4:45 p.m. in the boardroom of the municipal building Plans for a permanent organization win be discussed at this meeting. It is not unlikely that a subcommittee will be ap pointed to consider the best means of dis posing of the District's waste material and report to the committee at u. later meeting. Dr. Murray's report to the Commission ers on the results achieved by the cam paign will not he made until after Tues day's meeting, as it will include the busi ness transacted at that session. EARLY VOTE NOT LIKELY ON inns BILL Two Members of Senate Try ing to Get Agreement to Postpone Action. Although the Senate has agreed to vote on the employers' liability and work men's compensation bill before the ad journment of the legislative day of yes terday, there is no prospect that a vote will be reached on the measure this cal endar day. It Is still the legislative day of yesterday in the Senate, and It is prob able that the day will be continued some time longer. Democratic senators, headed by Mr. Smith of Georgia and Mr. Reed of Mis souri, are lighting against a vote in the hope of getting a general agreement to postpone action on the measure until next winter. Republicans, who are practically a unit in favor of the bill, express will ingness to have long sessions with a con tinuation of the legislative day of yes terday until the opposition wears itself out and a vote must be taken. There is talk of a night session and that probably will be forced by the ma jority who are friendly to the bill, un less the opposition agrees to. permit a vote at a definite horn- tomorrow. Adopt Many Tactics. The opponents adopted many tactics today to postpone a vote on the measure. There were frequent calls for a quorum, the time taken to call the roll giving the speaker a brief rest. Shortly after 1 o'clock a recess for an hour was pro posed, but was voted down. Senator Reed, who resumed his speech, begun yesterday, at the opening of the session at 11:50 o'clock today, continued to talk In opposition to the measure when that move failed. The opponents claim that tne bill would not allow employes of interstate carriers to recover as much for injuries as they can at present. ITALIAN FORCES CAPTURE TURK POSITION AT LEBDA Locality Bears Buins of Ancient Town of Leptis Magna and Is East of Tripoli. PARIS, May 3.?Gen. Reisoli, com manding the Italian forces to the east of the city of Tripoli, iias, according to information received here through an Italian source, attacked and captured the Turkish positions at Lebda, after a lively combat. The Turks resisted fiercely and lost 300 men killed. Eight Italians were killed and fifty-seven wounded. Ledda is the name of the locality bear ing the ruins of the ancient town of Leptis Magna. It is situated sixty-four miles south by east of Tripoli, on the Mediterranean coast. Lebda also is known by the name of Khoms. The ruins of the town are now half buried in sands. The walls inclose remains of magnificent structures in marble, porphyry and granite. Denies Battleship's Loss. ROME, May 3.?The government today made a denial of yesterday's report from Constantinople that the Italian battle ship Re Umberto had been driven on the rocks by a storm and sunk off the Tripolitania coast near Zuara. The Constantinople story said that a dispatch to this effect had been received | in the Turkish capital from Tunis. Provision for Repairs to Levee. With the understanding that an emer gency existed, the House yesterday pass ed. without debate, a bill appropriating $00,000 for immediate repairs to the Mis souri river levee in Nebraska, opposite Sioux City, Iowa, r FRANCE PRESENTS GIFT TO THE UNITED STATES Ceremonies Today in Vicinity of Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain. CROWN POINT, N. Y.. May 3?The final ceremony in connection with the presentation of Augustc Rodin's hronxe bust of "La France" by the French peo ple to%the citizens of the I'nited States was fulfilled here today. Delegates of the Vermont and New York Champlain tercentenary commission waited in the morning at Fort Ticon deroga, near the head of Lake Champlain, for the arrival from New York of the distinguished -French delegation, t?e guardians of tne sculpture which eventu ally will be placed in position at the foot of the Champlain memorial lighthouse, now under construction here. Inspect tJPe Ruins. The delegates arrived at T.conderoga this morning and were given a breakfast by Mr. and Mrs. S. Jl. P. Pell, after which they were shown about the ruins of Fort Ticonderoga, a part of whicn has been recently restored by Mr. Pell. L<ate in the forenoon the delegates and their hosts proceeded by special train to Port Henry, from where they were conveyed across the bay to the point from which this village takes its name. Following the ceremony of presenta tion, the chief feature of which was an address this afternoon by Gabriel Hano taux. the head of the French delega tion. it was planned to visit the ruins of Fort St. Frederic and Atnhers. which are now included in the state park known as the Crown Point reser vation. Later the visitors will return to Port Henry, where their special cars will be attached to the afternoon ex press for Montreal. The impressive services were attended by many prominent New York state offi cials and a large delegation of French savants. The bust, which is considered one of the best works of the famous sculptor, shows the figure of a woman with a background of bronze. Her head is draped with a flimsy veil, bearing an appropriate in scription, in French. The French delegates, through M. Hano taux, announced, after the dedication cere mony, that they intended to make a brief tour of the United States and Canada. They will return to France May 9. | PIMLICO ENTRIES. \ ?> ?

The campaigners are meeting with the greatest encouragement wherever they apply for funds. "The women should have a suitable building by all means, and you can count on me to do all in my power to aid la giving them such a building.'' is the re ply received In practically every case. The local Y. W. C. A. has been steadily growing during the last few years in the estimation of the people of Washington. That is has done splendid work In aiding girls and women in this city, many of whom came to the National Capital as strangers, without friends, is the testi mony accorded by many who have com* into close touch with the work of the or ganization. The classes of Instruction, which range from academic subjects to manual training, have hundreds of mem bers. The daily luncheons, bringing the work ers of the campaign together to make their reports, are proving a great suc cess. The luncheons are handled entirely by the Y. W. C. A. women, Mrs. Elisabeth Hubbard and Miss Grace Miller, who have charge of the regular lunch rooms of the association, being In charge. The fact that the new building is to give the girls and women of Washington just such a building as the Y. M. C. A. already has. with gymnasium, swimming pool, dining rooms and bowling alleys, and rooms which are for the accommoda tion of girls coming here for short stays, has added to the general Interest in the campaign.

CINCINNATI, May 3.?That there may be further arrests of former officials of the Second National Bank of Cincinnati was the statement made today by United States Bank Examiner Richard W. Good hart, who yesterday obtained the warrant which led to the arreat of former Presi dent E. E. Galbreath. Goodhart has charge of the investigation Into the af fairs of the institution for the controller of the currency. Goodhart declared that a special corps of accountants from the Department of Justice at Washington will be put to work on the books of the bank, and that every person believed to be guilty of misappro priating funds will be prosecuted. The new officials who were placed in charge of the bank by the Cincinnati Clearing House Association havo promised to do all in their power to assist the gov ernment investigation. Galbreath remains silent on the subject of his arrest on the charge of having willfully misappropriated $33,000 of the funds of the institution. The first of the accountants of the De partment of Justice arrived here today and at once went to work on the books of the bank under the direction of United States District Attorney McPherson. Mr. MePherson stated that the calling of a special grand jury to investigate the af faire of the bank is contingent upon the result of the accountant's discoveries.
