HOOVER IS EXPECTED TO SIGN ON RECEIPT House Votes Tomorrow on Confer ence Agreements Adjusting Dif ferences Between Houses, With Approval of Schedules in Short Order Expected. E' the Associated Press. The Senate today passed the tariff bill by adopting the confer ence reports. The vote on adoption was 44 to 42. The vote assured final congres sional approval of the tariff measure. The House will vote tomorrow on the conference agreement adjusting differences between the two branches, and affirmative action in a few hours is expected. President Hoover probably will ‘ receive the year-and-a-half-old Hawley-Smoot bill next week. Republican leaders have predicted he would sign it. He will study Its provisions before acting.

This accounted for every one of the 96 Senators. Connally Opens Fight. Opening the last three hours of de bate before the final vote, at 2 p.m.. Senator Connally. Democrat, Texas, said the farmer was not helped by the legis lation and he could hope for little re lief except through the export debenture plan, which was stricken out of the bill by the conferees. “The American farmer,” he said, “is the most popular individual —at election time, but after that he loses his popu larity except for orations In his behalf.” Connally said the bill “increases the cost to the people at home and increases the number of their enemies abroad.” Asserting the “world is in rebellion against these taxes of Congress,” Sen ator Simmons, Democrat, North Caro lina, contended foreign countries would j “no longer give us their trade.” No Help for Agriculture. “I do not see how this bill can possibly help agriculture, the most depressed of all industries," he continued. “The little help held out for agriculture, will be manv times offset by the increased burdens levied on it by the excessive Industrial rates.” Senator Robinson, the Democratic leader, asserted "as a feature of the ad , ministration's farm relief program the bill is an abortion.” “It perpetuates and intensifies in equalities and discriminations between • agriculture and other industries,” he said. “For this reason It violates the platforms of both political parties.” Winding up the contest for the Re publican proponents, Senator Watson, the majority leader, said: "If this bill is passed this Nation will be on the upgrade financially, economi cally and commercially within 30 days, and within a year we shall have re gained the peak of prosperity and the position we lost last October.” He assailed Henry Ford and Alfred F. Sloan, president of General Motors, for their opposition to the measure, say ing they both produced automobiles abroad and “want free trade in those articles In order that they may com pete in our market where they pay 50 per cent more wages.” Final Bill Is Compromise. The bill as it stood at the final roll call was not the measure which passed either House or Senate, but was a com promise between the two, reached by conferees of the two houses, as was the case in virtually all the 20 tariff bills that preceded it. Supplanting the Republican Fordney- McCumber act of 1922, the measure would raise an estimated revenue of 5630.000.000, or $107,000,000 more than the existing law based on 1928 importa tions. Os 3.218 named commodities and bas ket clauses comprising the measure, changes are made in 1.122, or about 32 per cent of the total.

SEGRAVE KILLED TESTING NEW SPEEDBOAT CONTENDER Auto Speed Record Holder Dies After Craft Overturns. Boat Traveling About 100 Miles Per Hour When Accident Occurs. By the Associated Press. WINDERMERE, England, June 13. Maj. Sir Henry O. Segrave, interna tionally known speed king, died shortly after 5 o'clock this evening from inju ries he suffered when his speed boat overturned on Lake Windermere. The famous racer, who held the world automobile record of 231 miles an hour, lost his life while testing out his newest speed boat, Miss England 11. with which he hoped to capture the International Trophy at Detroit this Summer. While pounding along on the lake at I a speed of about 100 miles an hour, the j boat suddenly was seen to turn over and plunge into the water. Segrave was ; dragged from the wreck by the owners | of speed launches which shot to his as j sistance. He was taken to a nearby | hotel and was found to have suffered a broken arm, a broken rib and a frac tured thigh. There were two companions in the boat with him. Mechanic E. Halliwell was believed to have been caught under the boat, which sank within half an MORROW VICTORY ON WEI ISSUE IS BELIEVED CERTAIN Republican Drys Hope Fort Will Win Through Vote Division. BY G. GOI'LD LINCOLN, Staff Correspondent of The Star. NEWARK, N. J.. June 13—The nomination and election of Dwight W. j Morrow to the Senate is New Jersey's opportunity for a place in the sun. That is the sincere belief of thousands of citizens of this Commonwealth almost j on the eve of the senatorial primary. Unless the usual political signs fail and veteran politicians and observers are at fault, Mr. Morrow will be the nomi nee of the Republican party. There is a fight on, however. The principal question at issue is national prohibition. Mr, Morrow has declared himself opposed to national prohibition and in favor of control of the liquor traffic by the States. He has declared emphatically individual States, if they desire, should have the authority to adopt prohibition and that they should be protected in their desire for prohibi tion. He is opposed to having the Na- ! tional Government undertake, as it has, to control or to prohibit the manufac ture and use of alcoholic beverages. Mr. Morrow has three opponents in the Republican primary. The first in the field was former Senator Joseph S. Frelinghuysen. who formerly was con sidered a dry. but who during the present campaign has switched and de clared himself for a change in dealing with liquor, favoring a system some what like that adopted in Canada, where 1 the government has undertaken to act I as distributor of alcoholic beverages. Fort Is Real Competitor. Mr. Morrow's second opponent is Representative Franklin W. Fort, sup- I porter of the eighteenth amendment, i secretary of the Republican national i committee during the Hoover presiden- j tial campaign and a close friend of the President The third entry against Mr. j Morrow is John A. Kelly of Monmouth County, a wringing wet. If it were not for the candidacy of j Mr. Fort, the nomination of Mr. Morrow would be a comparatively simple affair. The Ambassador to Mexico has the sup port of the Republican organization of the State, generally speaking. That, added to his own personality, his repu tation as a business man and as a dip lomat, made his nomination practically sure. With Frelinghuysen and Kelly espousing the cause of prohibition mod ification or repeal, along with Mr. Mor row, the wet and dry issue was insig- j nificant,. But when Mr. Fort threw j his hat in the ring as a dry, the situ- j ation changed over night. Because of the Fort entry, New Jer- j sey has become a new battleground j over which the wet and dry forces are ' waging a desperate struggle. The drys In the Republican party see a chance, through a divided vote of the wets, to nominate their candidate and defeat both Morrow and Frelinghuysen. They are leaving no stone unturned to bring about this end. The Anti-Saloon League, many of the churches and in dependent supporters of national prohi bition have taken off their coats and gone to work to defeat Mr. Morrow.

BALTIMORE OVERTAKES BOSTON, HISTORIC RIVAL FOR CENSUS LEAD Both Cities Pushed Down on List by Entry of Los Angeles Into "Big Five” Class. By the Associated Press. Historic Boston today woke to Friday the thirteenth luck—she had lost her population lead of half a century to equally tradition-filled Baltimore. She also failed to pass St. Louis.

MARINE SAYS CREW OF FAIRFAX ACIEO WITH EFFICIENCY Witness Declares Confusion on Ship Lasted But Few Minutes. By the Associated Pres*. BOSTON, June 13. —Members of the crew of the steamship Fairfax seemed fairly efficient and the confusion on board lasted but a few minutes after the collision of the Fairfax and the oil tank er Pinthis in Massachusetts Bay Tues day night. Harry E. Kipp, Marine ser i geant, testified today at the opening of the second day of the Federal inquiry into the disaster which claimed 47 lives. Kipp, who had been stationed at the Boston Navy Yard, was proceeding un der orders to Norfolk as a passenger on the Merchants <fc Miners liner Fairfax when the ship drove her bow into the oil tanker a few miles off Scituate. Immediately after the crash, Kipp said, he came out of his cabin, on the port side, to find smoke and flames cutting off the first exit and he had to dash for another. As he arrived on deck | there seemed to be some confusion, but ; it was brief. The Marine said he saw several man and woman passengers and members of the crew jump into the sea, and he saw one lifeboat filled with colored men, ap parently of the crew. They were sitting quietly, however, and not making any 1 effort to lower the boat. Some time \ later, possibly an hour and a half after the collision, he said he saw another lifeboat filled with passengers. Helped to Fight Fire. He was joined on deck by Sergt. Hutchcroft, also a Marine, and the two helped to fight the fire, which caught from the flaming oil shot out by the tanker after it exploded from the col lision. He said he was not one of the Marines who helped to repair the radio antenna, which witnesses at the in quiry yesterday testified was melted away by the oil flames and later re paired. Kipp praised the work of the nurses and women who helped care for the Injured. A. J. Powell, third officer of the Fair fax, went back on the stand today at his own request. Powell appeared yestprday with a large bandage across his upper lip, but denied he had been hurt in the colli i sion. Today, he reiterated his denial. Hoover asked him a number of tech- I nical questions about preparations for launching lifeboats. Others Take Stand. Miss Nellie Todd, an entertainer on the beat, said there was no trampling of passengers and little disorder. She said the crew behaved well and that she saw one colored waiter going about breaking open cabins and assisting pas sengers in getting out. Miss Doiothy Mannix. a nurse on the ship, told of her efforts to quiet pas sengers and of rendering aid to those who were hurt. Miss Jane Stone of Washington, chief stewardess on the Fairfax, told of as sisting Mrs. Ida Berkowitz, 22, of Bos ton and her son Robert. Both Mrs. Berkowitz and the child died at the Carney Hospital from burns and the effects of smoke. Mrs. Berkowitz refused to enter a lifeboat until a lifebelt had been placed | around her child, Miss Stone testified, i She described the difficulty with which she cared for the injured woman. William M. Smith, chief steward of the Fairfax, opened his testimony by saying that “nothing in the world could have been done that was not done.” He said he had charge of 43 members of the crew, including stewards, waiters, the nurses and entertainers.

C., FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 1930—FIFTY PAGES. *** DISTRICT FUND BILL IS THOUGHT DOOMLO AS CONFEREES SPLIT Attempts of Senate to Reach Agreement by 70-30 Com promise Fail. 1930 CONSTRUCTION HERE FACES DEATH School, Street, Road, Water, Sewer, Grade Crossing and Other Proj ects Would Be Killed. The District appropriation bill for the fiscal year beginning July 1 ap peared doomed today when the Senate and House conferees parted at noon after another futile effort to compromise on the amount of the Federal con tribution. When the conference adjourned, a report was being drafted for presenta tion to the Senate and House stating that after a full and free conference, the managers on the part of the two houses have been unable to agree. This means that unless some un foreseen development should occur, the regular appropriation bill will fail and Congress will have to put through a continuing resolution to take care of the routine operating expenses of the Municipal Government. Such a reso lution, however, would not permit of any new construction work of any kind. House Decline* Compromise. The Senate conferees made two prop ositions this morning, either to ompro mise with the House on the lump sum at. some point between the House flgurp of $9,000,000 and the Senate figure of $12,000,000. or to adopt a new ratio of 70-30 for apportioning the cost of running the National Capital between the District and Federal governments Both propositions were turned down by the House conferees. Emerging from the conference room. Senator Bingham, Republican of Con necticut, chairman of the Senate group, said: “The Senate offered to compromise cn the lump sum and was told the House conferees refused to increase it over $9,000,000 The Senate conferees also offered to fix a new ratio of 70-30 and that was refused.” Senator Bingham said the Senate conferees would submit to the Senate a report of their inability to reach an agreement with the House. The Connecticut Senator said that a continuing resolution would have to originate in the House. Representative Simmons. Republican, of Nebraska, chairman of thp House conferees, said as he left the confer ence: “It’s over forever, as far as I am concerned.” Right Bark at Start. Asked if any headway had been made at, the meeting. Mr. Simmons added that "We are rijght where we were when we first went into conference.” The formal report setting forth the failure to reach an agreement had been prepared, but had not been signed by all of the conferees at noon. It will not be filed in the Senate until It has been signed. This was the first time the conferees had been together during the past two weeks, having reached a deadlock at the previous meeting over the fiscal rela tions item. During that interval, both Senator Bingham and Representative Simmons made speeches in their re spective Houses, upholding the posi tions taken by the conferees, and there was little hope of obtaining an agree ment when hey went back into confer ence this morning. The Senate conferees have been of the unanimous opinion that the steady increase in the total annual cost of running the National Capital since the $9.0C0,000 lump sum was adopted in 1925 justifies an increase in the Federal contribution. The House conferees have been equally firm in contending that $9,000,000 is sufficient. Senate Urge* Compromise. The position of the Senate conferees has been that where the two branches of Congress take conflicting views on a question, the solution should lie in a compromise between the two points of view. There are no indications, how ever. of obtaining a compromise at this time. When the District supply bill went to conference. It carried approximately $44,000,000. This figure represented manv important new projects in addi tion to the routine operating expenses for the next 12 months. It covered a long list of street im provements, a program of school con struction. money for elimination of an other railroad grade crossing, a sub stantial amount for continuing the Mu nicipal Center and other new work, none of which could be done under a continuing resolution. Senator Jones. Republican, of Wash ington, chairman of the Senate appro priations rommittee. and Representa tive Wood, Republican, of Indiana, chairman of the House appropriations committee, conferred with the conferees at the meeting today. The Senate conferees are Senators Bingham of Connecticut, Phipps of Colorado. Capper of Kansas, Glass of Virginia and Kendrick of Wyoming. The House managers are Representative Simmons of Nebraska, Holladay of Il linois, Thatcher of Kentucky. Collins of Mississippi and Cannon of Missouri. If the District appropriation bill does not pass at this session of Congress and a continuing resolution is passed, the net effect would be that no new con struction of schools, streets, roads, sew - ers. water mains, fire engine houses or police stations or any other description of new construction work, including bridges and grade crossing elimination (Continued on Page 2, Column 2.) 0 ■ ■ - SLAIN IN MOTHER’S HOME BLYTHEVILLE.

The Secretary of state acknowl edged the commi’tee's resolution in a brief letter to Chairman Borah. He made no mention of forwarding the exchange of notrg among the powers leading up t<j the London par!e\. The commit tee resolution did not demand tht papers. Accepting the incident ?< closed, Senator Borah called another meeting of the eommittee for Monday, when he hopes to get ac tion on the treaty.

In his prior communication ho said the question whether the treaty is or is net in the interests of the* United States and should or should j not be ratified by the Senate must in I the last event be determined from tho ! language of the document itself and j not from extraneous matter. "By every rule of construction, this language would seem to imply that In the matter of the ratification of a treaty by the Senate the Senate in the last event is limited to the document itseif and no extraneous matter coufci be con sidered. Now the distinguished Secre tary of State says he was merely calling attention to the fact that obligation* and rights arising from the treaty must be measured by the language itself. "While the explanation may not be as elear and as bright as the noonday sun I'm delighted that the declaration of policy enunciated by the foreign rela tions committee is neither controverted nor denied. We may accept as settled now the rights of the Senate in the con sideration of treaties as defined in th* resolution of the eommittee on foreign relations.” OHIO REFORMATORY OUTBREAK IS QUELLED j Threat of Clubs and Tear Ga« Bombs Restore Order in Sec ond Attempt to Riot. | By the Associated Press.
