Washington. Feb. 11. The debate on the Aldrieh currency bill began in the .Senate today and was followed with interest by many bankers who occu pied seats in the galleries. Among them was J. P. Morgan. The discus sion was directed chiefly toward I the provision focxrailroad bonds as a ba sis for emergency circulation, a wide difference of opinion being developed concerning the method that should be adopted in determining the valuation to be given such bonds as well as the opposition to the use of such securities under any term. The bill-was finally read through and the committee amendments incorpora ted, it being understood that the en tire bill will be subject to amendment hereafter. Mr. LaFolette read the amendments that he intends to offer. They provide that no bonds of railroads shall be ac cepted for security for currency un less the face value and cost of repro ducing the railroad shall have been ascertained by the interstate com merce commission and the currency is sued on such bonds shall not lie more tharT"75 per cent of the physical value of the road on which the bonds are based. Notice was given by Mr. McLaurin. of Mississippi of an amendment he will offer limiting the amount of currency to be issued on any bonds to the par value of the bonds. Mr. Dan iels offered an amendment providing that bonds of railroads that have paid regularly and continuously for five years next preceding its bonds and the interest due on all bonds, can be used for currency issues. The amendment, lie savs, would allow the use -of bonds of roads that have not paid dividends on stock. This would permit the use of bonds of a number of southern rail roads which are now excluded. Mr. Lodge gave notice of an amend ment, including among the' bonds available for currency issues, the bonds of the Philippine Island gov ernment, the city of Manila and the railroads in the Philippines, the in terest of which has been guaranteed by the Philippine .government.

FRIEDMAN ed to the mild criticism of the presi dent by Mr. Tawney. chairman of the appropriation committee, the president having, as Tawney charged, appointed the Inland Waterways commission without authority of law. The debate was on the urgent deficiency bill, Bnd Mr. Tawney's remarks grew out of the amendment to pay John H. Hankhead, the new senator from Alabama -for his services on the commission. The right of the president to ap point" such a commission was upheld by Messrs. Crumpacker of Indiana, and I'nderwood of Alabama. The house however, refused to accept the amendment. In a vigorous speech, Mr. Harrison of New York, condemned Secretary of State Root for his manner of handling the negotiations with Russia regarding passports to Russian Hebrew citizens of the I'nited States and Mr. Lowden of Illinois with equal force defended Mr. Root, saying that the negotiatTons would result satisfactorily to Jewish citizens desiring to visit Russia.

New York, Feb. 11. The needs of the uncovered short interest which be- . gan to make itself felt even before yes terday's, scsion was over asserted its influence decisively in today's stock market and effected a substantial but temporary rally of prices. The recov ery did not cover more than part of yesterday's declines. The forced de mand was d.-cijedly less at the higher stages and the rally seemed exhausted in the final reaction. The market be came profoundly dull later in the day. It was rerrted that thirty-five per cent of the Pennsylvania's equipment is idle. The Pennsylvania did not share the general strength of the mar ket, partially on account of the belief that the sales were made of stock against purchases of Reading through the same firm. For six months from July there was shown a shrinkage in the net returns of Rock Island of up wards of 20 per cent. The holiday to morrow was an influence toward the curtailment of activity in stocks, the I brief selling-movement at the end of j the day made rapid inroads on the I earlier gains and left the day's changes mixed. Ronds were regular. - STOCKS.

Hundreds were turned away from the Academy of Mu sic tonight unable to gain admission to the annual banquet of the Kalama zoo Lincoln flub, at which United Stntes Senator Philander C. Knox of Pittsburg and Congressman J. Adam Bede of Minnesota were the guests of honor. I'nited States tlenator J. C. Burrows, of Michigan also spoke. The subject of Mr. Knox's address was The People, the Railroads and National Prosperity." Mr. Knox comprehensively reviewed the growth of the railroad industry, and the extension of federal control over Interstate commerce. In conclud ing, he said: "There is nothing in present condi tions requiring any strain upon our institutions to supply a remedy for any mischiefs that plague the public, and there are ho mischiefs the correc tion of which may not be- attained without disturbing the public welfare. There is enough federal power, if not enough federal legislation, to meet all federal emergencies. There Is noth ing affecting the external affairs of the nation or such internal ones as are committed to its charge that con gress cannot regulate; there Is noth ing that affects them injuriously that congress should not regulate, and there is nothing which does not be long ..to the federal jurisdiction that congress should utfempt to regulate. "Laws enacted under the public au thority fn a spirit of wisdom and tol eration, enforced impartially, prompt ly and. fearlessly, repealed w:hen found unsuited to conditions or to be op pressive will not only mark us as a people progressing in the art of self government, but will reduce to a min imum any conflict between the people and the railroads between whom there should be the peace that will enable the one to receive and the) other to ren der a service that "measures the prof itable production of this vast coun try.'" - o A COLUMBIAN LAW - TO STOP JAPANESE The Probabilities Though Are That it Will Not Be Able to Run the Gaunt let. Victoria, R. C. Feb. 11. The new immigration law enacted by the British Columbia legislature recently on the lines of the natal act, which applies an educational test to immigrants ar riving in British Columbia, -who must be able to read and write English or a language of Europe, to be permitted to land, became a, law today, when Lieutenant Governor James Dunsmuir assented to the bill. Immediate provision Is made for the enforcement of the new law, which Is obviously aimed at the Japanese. Of ficials have lieen appointed and In structed to carry It into effect on all Immigrants arriving after today. There are at the quarantine station 268 Jap anese left there by the steamer Kaga -Taru in quarantine, 12 3 of whom are bound for here. These will come un der the provisions of the new laws. It Is understood that steps will be taken by Japanese and others inter ested to test the validity of the new hill in the courts. It is considered that following this the Canadian gov ernment will disallow the bill as op posed to imperial interest. Bacycles -and bi cycle tires of all kinds.

Columbus, Feb. 11. The net result of the republican piiimrries held through out Ohio today was in favor of Wm. H. Taft who will have four delegates at large and twenty-three district del egates to the national convention at Chicago. A list of delegates to the state convention to be held on March 3 which 'will b unanimously in his favor was selected. No opposition worth mentioning de veloped during the day. The supreme court destroyed all chances of success by the Foraker element in Cuyahoga county by declaring the Taft county committee the only valid organization of its kind in. the county. The selec tion of delegates therefrom went by default, no ticket being placed in the field against the. Taft candidates. In Kjiok countv the oDDosition I brought an "independent" ticket Into the field,, the "independents," however, being all Foraker men. The Taft can didates won easily the vote being four to one in their favor. Actual voting for delegates to the state convention was carried on in but thirty-five out of a total of eighty-eight counties, the Taft delegates in fifty-two counties having no opposition. Congressional primaries were held in the fourth, fifth, sixth, the greater part of the eighth, ninth, twelfth, four teenth, sixteenth, eighteenth and twenty-first districts and small portions of TO LINE M'DOWriL ROAD WITH TREES Important Meeting of Property Own- ers in That District This Afternoon.

In all but the last two wherein the voting was in a too limited territory to be decisive, the Taft peopie won without opposition. In the ninth, sixth and sixteenth districts the candidates for congress were nominated directly at the primaries. It was the original in tention to select delegates to th na tional convention in the same manner but it was later decided. In order to avoid, all chance of fucure complica tions to name the delegates In the reg ular district conventions. In the eighth district the congres sional primaries were not held but in one county Hardin but the result there cannot possibly overrule the vote of the remanJder of the district and its twjr delegates lo the Chicago conven tion are certain for Taft. The following statement was ' issued tonight by Art h or 1. Vorys. manager of the Taft, campaign: "Ohio is for Taft. The result of the primaries to day completes that demonstration. Ev ery county except one. with seven del egates has n;w seltcted delegates to the stat convention and every county selected Taft delegates. The state convention will be unanimously for Taft, for every one of the 1,815 dele gates is for, and Is instructed for Taft. This unanimity also demonstrates that every one of the forty-six delegates to the national convention will be for Taft." where, that some action of this kind i-would more than repay the property owners, by the increased valuation of their porperty and It Is hoped for both, public and private interest that the meeting will be largely attended.
