THE AEIZOHA EEPHBIICAN
LA FOLLETTE DEMANDS
PHYSICAL VALUATION
If Bonds of Railroads Are to Be Used as
Basis for Emergency Circulation
The House Rejects a Small Amendment to the Urgency
Deliceney Bill Frovi(ling Pay ior the President's In
land Waterways Commissioners.
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.
OCEAN MAIL SUBSIDY BILL
Washington. Feb. 11. On the motion

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. The
Indian Appropriation bill was discuss
ed ff some time and amended in sev
eral particulars. Its consideration was
not concluded.
The legislative, executive and judic
ial appropriation bill was reported In
the house today from the committee
on appropriations, by Representative
Bingham of Pennsylvania. It is to be
taken up immediately after the dispo
sition the Indian appropriation bill.
It carries a total appropriation of
$32,337,073 a reduction of $1,873,643.

MORE PAY FOR ENLISTED MEN.
Washington, Feb. 11. It was decid
ed today by the house committee mil
itary affairs to incorporate in the army
appropriation bill a provision for an
increase of pay for enlisted men. The
rate of increase has not been deter
mined, nor has the Committee yet de
cided to recommend an increase of pay
for officers.

SLIGHTLY STIMULAUO ;
BY NEfDS Of SHORTS
That Afforded the Stock Market About
the Only Activity it Had.
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. -

The lheme of Senator
Knox Last Night '
There is Nothing, He Said,
In the Situation to Strain
the Government.
Kalamazoo, Feb. 11. 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.'" -

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.

MRS. M DONALD CLFARED
- Of MURDER OF GUERIN
The Defendant Hysterical Throughout
the Trial, Was Unmoved by the
Verdict.
Chicago, Feb. 11. Mrs. Dora Mc
Donald, who has been on trial since
January 20, on the charge of murder
ing Webster Guerin, was acquitted by
a jury In the criminal court tonight.
The verdict was reached after six and
a half hour's deliberation, the jury
having retired at 1 o'clock this after
noon. ,
The defendant, who Is the widow of
Michael McDonald, the former million-
jaire gambling king and political lead
I er of Chicago, received the verdict
without apparent emotion. During the
trial she frequently -collapsed on sev
eral occasions and the case was Inter
rupted in order that she might receive
medical attention. Tonight, however,
she was the least moved of any person
concerned in the defense, her attend
ant being ho overcome that Mrs. Mc
Donald was compelled to exchange
roles with her to try and quiet the
woman.
The members of the Jury took an
oath before reaching their finding, not
to reveal the history of their deliber
ations. The first ballot they said,
stood 8 to 4 for acquittal, but subse
quent developments were carefully
kept secret. After Mrs. McDonald had
been discharged she was taken to a
hotel by relatives. It was announced
later that she will retire to a sanita
rium. ANOTHER FLOTILLA

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

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

congress were nominated directly at
the primaries. It was the original in

but it was later decided. In order to
avoid, all chance of fucure complica

In the eighth district the congres

there cannot possibly overrule the vote
of the remanJder of the district and its

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
