Defeat Not Surprise.
The defeat of the motion for clo
ture on the tariff bill was expected.
The debate on the measure will now
proceed under the usual conditions.
However, democratic senators are
predicting that unless the debate is
prolonged by the republicans them
selves a vote on the passage of the
tariff bill may be had by August 10
There are a number of important
schedules still remaining to be dis
cussed, which will lead to consider
able debate, among them. wool, cot
ton, sugar, hides'and dyes. There also
remains to be considered the provi
sion; relating to valuation, the House
having adopted the American valua
tion and the Senate committee recom
mending the foreign valuation plan.
The provision of the bill authorizing
the President to take cognisance of
conditions abroad and to readjust the
administration of the tariff also .has
? till to be considered.
Even had the cloture as proposed
been adopted by the Senate today and
the tariff bill passed In the next cou
ple of weeks under that rule the btll
could not have been sent to conference
until the House reassembled August
15, as the House Is now In recess.
;?nator Caraway of Arkansas. demo
Mat, pointed out this difficulty of
speeding up the tariff bill. He criti
cized republican senators, now de
manding cloture, when they knew
that they had voted to allow the
House to go away until August IE.

Will Insist That Congress En
large Powers of Proposed
Commission. ^
j President Harding wants the powers j
of the Tariff Commission enlarged, and '
he will insist upon a provision to that j
effect in the pending tariff bill.
Senator McCumber, chairman of the ?
finance committee of the Senate, has!
just announced on the floor of the!
Senate that many of the changcs j
made in the bill since its introduction i
have been occasioned by changing!
conditions from day to day. Mr. Hard-!
i ing is among those who believe that i
j if conditions change while the bill is
[ under consideration they will change
| when It is a law and some permanent
machinery for alteration must be
provided, because the Senate finance
committee cannot stay in continu
ous session to do the Job when once
the measure is law.
The President is prepared to make
an earnest appeal for the transfer of
tins problem to the hands of the
Tariff Commission. This body at pres
ent has only powers of inquiry and ?
study For generations it has been I

Opportnnlty Rare One.
, The President has the greatest op- '
portunity an American President has!
ever had to overcome the traditional 1
objections In Congress to the giving
up by Congress of the task of making I
tariff bills. Heretofore the power has
been Jealously guarded because of a
fear that the protectionists or tariff- I
for-revenue principles would be aban
doned accord ing as the tariff commis
sion was composed of those who lean- |
ed toward the democratic or republi
can View of tariff making. Within
the last few days the republican na
j tional committee has taken a fling at
the movement for a "non-partisan tar
iff commission" by insisting that there
| could be no such thing, as one or the
other of the two principles must pre
Mr. Harding is a protectionist. He
quiets the fears of those who mould
hesitate to give the full power to a
tariff commission by urging that the
commission should merely recommend
that the chief executive should have
the power to proclaim the tariff duties
as conditions change.
This correspondent has been assur
ed that Mr. Harding stands today on
the recommendation he made in his
December address t<( Congress, in
which he said:
Need of Elasticity.
"I hope a way will be found to
make for flexibility and elasticity, so
that rates may be adjusted to meet
unusual and changing conditions
which cannot be accurately antlci
! pated. These are problems incident
to unfair practices and to exchanges,
which madness in money have made j
almost lnsolvable. I know of no ?
manner In which to effect this flexi- :
bility other than the extension of
the powers of the tariff commission,
so that it can adapt.itself to a scien
tific and wholly just administration
of the law.
"I am not unmindful of the con
stitutional difficulties. These can be
met by giving authority to the chief
executive, who could proclaim addi
tional duties to meet conditions
which the Congress may designate.
The grant of authority to proclaim
would necessarily bring the tariff
commission into new and enlarged
activities, because no executive could
discharge such a duty except upon
the information acquired and recom
mendations made by this commission.
But the plan is feasible and the
proper functioning of the board
would give us a better administra
tion of a defined policy than ever
can be made possible by tariff duties
prescribed without flexibility." -
Protectionist Policy Meant.
By the phrase "administration of a
defined policy." the President means In
his own case a protectionist policy.
The evils of a tariff law are not usual
ly of principle, but the application of
a principle. It Is more often a ques
tion of whether the protection is for
the manufacturer or the consumer and
whether the protection, if it is for the
manufacturer. Is sufficient to keep out
foreign competition without raising
the price too high for the American
consumer. As costs of production and
labor conditions fluctuate, the statistics
on which Congress levies its duties
also change. Mr. Harding wants the
protectionist policy applied honestly.
He believe a tariff commission could
constantly furnish the data, and the
chief executive could thus change the
duties from time to time to conform
to the fluctuation in economic condi
tions throughout the country.
Many of the republicans who are to
vote for the pending tariff bill will do
?o with a lukewarm feeling They
know the bill will cause dissatisfac
tion later on. They would welcome
therefore, some corrective machinery
which would In itself constitute an
assurance against the bad working of
the pending measure. Congress would
always be able to revoke the power
given the executive if it were abused.

CHICAGO, July 7.?With B. M.

Picketing of railroad shops contin

and several arrests were made in con
nection with picketing and disorders.
Despite numerous outbreaks by
strikers there was a general impres

the strike was toward peace, and hop^j
was expressed that Mr. Jewell would |
be brought together with the United
States Labor Board's two diplomats I

Hooper and W. L. McMenimen. one of |
the three labor members. Railroads,
meanwhile, continued to employ new
men to take the jobs left by strikers,
and the ultimatums to return to work
next week or forfeit all seniority and
pension rights stood effective in shops
throughout the country.
Although some short-run trains, par
ticularly on the Chicago and North
western and the Salt Lake line of the
Union Pacific, were annulled, the rail
roads generally reported slight inter
ruption of transportation as a result
of the shopmen's strike.
Strikers were reported at various
points to be straggling back to the
old Jobs in uncertain numbers, but
these reports reflected no weakness in
statements from union headquarters,
where Mr. Jewell reiterated his an
nouncment that the strike was vir
tually 100 per cent effective.
Women Bark Strike.
Mr. Jewell exhibited telegrams from
women's auxiliaries of shop crafts or
ganizations expressing support of the
strike. He announced also the first
sympathetic walk-out by exhibiting
messages informing him that 2,500

Commissioner Oyster today re
vived his campaign of last sum
mer to make Washington a weed
less city.
The Commissioner announced
that the health^ind police depart

ing out this summer the act of
Congress which makes It unlawful
for the -owners of vacant land in
the densely populated sections of
the District to permit weeds ' to
grow on 'their land to a greater
height than four inches.
Already the health department,
with its inadequate coops of In
, spectors/has served 12SK>ticea on
owners that they must remove
weeds from their property.
In this connection. Commissioner
Oyster also appealed to house
holders to co-operate in beautify
ing: the city by keeping front lawns
trim *nd tidy.
This is the time of year, he point
ed out, when visitors^ come to
Washington in large numbers. Be
cause this is the National Capital,
he said, tourists, naturally, expect
to see a cleaner and better kept
city than the average.
With {he aid of the health de
partment and the police, Commis
sioner Oyster wai successful last
summer In having unsightly weeds
removed from hundreds of vacant
plots in all sections of the city, and
is hopeful of achieving equal re

Anthracite Operators and
Union Men Continue Con
ferences Here.
Continuation today of the confer
ences between the anthracite coal mine
operators and union representatives i
was taken as an indication of hope
of reaching an agreement through
the conference called by President
Harding to consider methods of se
curing a resumption of work in the
coal industry. Neither side, however,
would give out a statement as to the
trend of developments on adjourn
ment of yesterday's meeting, which
was said to have been without definite
In the meantime, the bituminous
strike situation, negotiations in
which have been deferred until Mon
day, is pressing itself more and more
upon the attention of officials as to
the matter of the public's coal supply.
Concern is felt over the present cur
tailment of shipments for the north
west, failure to receive the usual coal
supply transported by the great lakes
in summer, it is said, raising the pos
sibility of congested railroads next
winter. Another area in which a
pinch is said to have developed is in
northern New York, which usually at
this season is being supplied with a
winter store of hard coal by coast
wise shipping.
Anthracite Men Rece?s.
A lengthy session between anthra
cite coal mine operators and union rep
resentatives at the Interior Department
broke up yesterday afternoon without
definite results being accomplished, but .
with an agreement on the part of the
participants to meet again at 2 o'clock j
this afternoon. Only the notification I
that sessions would be continued today
was given to indicate the trend of opin
ion among anthracite negotiators. Sec
retary Fall took part in the conference,
but left before its conclusion.
At all prior meetings employers have
stood firmly for a reduction in wage
scales, tendering arbitration through
President Harding to determine the i
amount, while th< un'on representative p.
offering to negotiate on the basis of
wage scales existing March 31, ha^re re
fused to consent to reductions, and have
made demands for modification of prior
contracts. 41
While all the considerations affecting
the bituminous strike situation have
been deferred until Monday, after Presi
dent Harding's return, government
views of the matter were made avail
able In part through semi-official dis
cussion. In the matter of the public s
coal supply, two "Pinches have de
veloped. it was said, one in the north
west, to which a large portion of coal
is usuallv transported by the great
lakes In summer and the other in north
ern New England, whence anthracite is
borne by coastwise shipping. ?

feature of the closing session of*the

the inclusion in the agenda of the fifth
pan-American conference, to be held
next March in Santiago, of the whole
question of world disarmament, both
naval and military.
Dr. Rivas Vicuna said Chile would
use the Washington conference as the
basis for her program. He explained
that Chile was making an effort to
bring about disarmament in South
The commission occupied itself largely
with final discussion of the three out
standing plans for disarmament which
have been before it. two of them
presented by Ix?rd Robert Cecil, and the
third by Lord Esher. The commission
also decided upon an appeal to the
thinking people of the world to assist
in bringing about disarmament.
Rene Viviani, for France, made an
address pointing out the tremendous dif
ficulties of disarmament under present
conditions, but said fair progress was
being made.
Lord Robert Cecil declared he felt the
present meeting had done more to put
a concrete plan before the world than
any previous meeting of the commission 1
and that the commission had approved |
in principle plans, which made possible
world-wide disarmament. He added that I
the three projects adopted would be

Proud Brooklyn Bridge Turns
Back to Horses' Pace of Youth
Special Dispatch to The Star.
NEW YORK, July 7.?The wheels of
progress that rumbled ovfr Brooklyn
bridge today were horse-drawn
wheels. The wonderful old structure,
long one of the engineering marvels
of the world, has been deposed from
the proud position it held for years as
the main artery of traffic between
Manhattan and Long Island by the
present-day demand for speed. At 4
o'clock this morning all motor-driven
vehicles were barred from the road
ways of the bridge by order of Grover
A. Whalen, commissioner of plant and
structures of the city of New Tork.
AttM Go to Newer Brilfe.
Motor traffic has been diverted by
the order to the newer and more com
modious roadways of the Manhattan
and Williamsburg bridge*. The vol
ume of traffic across the East river of
both commercial and pleasure ve-~
hlcles has crown until congestion
threatened all the connecting surface
links between Brooklyn and New
York. The mixture of slow horse
drawn wagons and fast motor-driven
vehicles, far separated in range of
speed, added to that congestion, 'and
it was decided to relegate the slower
traffic, to the older'structure.
For years tSe old bridge maintained |
ltd kU]i>re(fVcy. am! honor. Qn the day
the bridge was opened iro May, 1883, a
procession of warships from the Brook
lyn navy yard, passing under the mighty
spans, thundered a salute to the en
gineering marvel. The city declared a
holiday in celebration of the release of
commerce from the shackles of the fer
ries. President Clfester A. Arthur, with
Gov. drover Cleveland at his side and
escorted by the 7th Regiment of the
New York National Guard, marched
across It and formally presided at the
opening of its roadways.
Ua rivaled far Tweaty Years.
For twenty years the bridge waa with
out a rival. Tlien came the Williams
burg bridge, the Manhattan bridge and
I the Queensboro bridge. The hurry and
surge of both business and pleasure
traffic increased over the newer struc
tures, but today Brooklyn bridge Was
back at the pace of its youth?the pace
of the irctn tired trucks and heavy
Percheron draft horses.
Jn order to expedite the flow of traffic
OTOr the Manhattan bridge the order of
Commissioner Whalen provides that the
lower roadway shall carry motor traffic
in both directions throughout the full
twenty-four hours, while the upper road
way is devoted to traffic coming from
Brooklyn from 7 a.m. to noon, while it
will carry east bound traffic from noon*
to 7 p.m. At night only westbound
traffic will be allowed. No horse-drawn
vehicles will be allowed on it whatever.

Irish Free State government, by its
