Fourth of July Was the Busiest
At the Conclusion There
Was So Little Left to Be
Done to the Tariff Bill
That the Measure Will
Likely Come Up Today.
Washington, July 5. The Fourth of
July was the senate's busy day. From
10 in the morning until 5 o'clock in the
afternoon the senators labored.
The day was devoted, in the main,
to the consideration of the administra
tive provisions of the tariff bill and
the Brown resolution providing for the
submission of an income tax constitu
tional amendment to the state legisla
tures. Mr. Rayner made a vigorous fight
against the customs court features of
the administrative amendment. He de
clared that the court would be uncon
stitutional, because while it dealt with
questions of common law no provision
was made for trial by Jury, which, he
said, every litigant at common law
has the right to demand. The cus
toms court provision occupied the at
tention of the senate for about three
hours and ultimately was accepted
without division.
The proposed court is to consist of
five members and Is intended to su
persede the United States circuit courts
in customs matters.
Not since the tariff bill has come
into the senate has so much been ac
complished in one day. Indeed, when
the sitting came to an end, little re
mained to be done. The principal Item
still to Ik? considered was the tobacco
tax, the figures on which had not been
completed by the committee when the
senate adjourned, -
Attention was given to the drawback
feature of the bill, relative to which
the finance committee has made no
recommendation beyond striking out
the house provision. In the senate
however, several amendments were
male. some of which were admitted at
Senator Mo-Cumber's Instance to satis
fy the grain producers of the North
west. A number of othur minor amend
ments were made and all the. adminis
trative features w'sre disposed of.
Karly in the day the income tax res
olution of Senator Brown of Nebraska
was adopted. The resolution submits
to the state legislatures an amendment
to the constitution providing that "con
gress shall have power to lay and. col
lect taxes on incomes from whatever
source derived, without apportionment
among the. several" states'and with
out regard to anv census or enumera
tion." Mr. Aldrich hopes the tariff bill to
morrow will go from the committee of
the whole to th? snate. In the sen
ate proper it will receive brief atten
tion and then go to conference.
Senator Aldrich explained that there
would be laid before the senate a few
committee amendments providing for
a tax on vessels and a tobacco tax, in
cluding loaf tobacco.
Mr. Culberson declared that the
Standard Oil comiany continues to re
ceive drawbacks on cans It exports.
amounting to $1,000,001 a year, and "hdB
; . t i i i , .
nr on or an amemuneni lo
correct that condition.
"Does the senator think the Stand
ard Oil company ought to be treated
differently from other citizens?" In
quired Mr. Aldrich.
"I think." replied Mr. CuuVrson, "that
any monopoly ought to be treated dif
ferently from citizens who are endeav
oring to obey the laws."
"I do not think," said Mr" Aldrich,
"that the Standard Oil company haa
any monopoly in the export of oil."
Mr. Aldrich added that the tin plate
manufactured in the United States is
in the hands of one concern. "I do not
know," he said, "whether that concern
is asking to be benefited by the abo
lition of drawbacks."
"I am very sorry,"- Bald Senator
Scott, "to see the senators inclined to
criticise every corporation. The
Standard Oil company seems to be the
bogey man which everybody kicks."

It Was Distinguished For
Its Viciousness and
Bloodiness The Cham
pion Had Best of It Until
He Broke His Hand.
San Francisco, July 6. Stanley
Ketchel, of Michigan, is still the
world's middle weight champion. In
a desperate, gruelling battle during
which the champion was constantly
on the aggressive, he was awarded
the decision over Billy Papke of Illi
nois at the end of the twentieth round
of the fight limit. Ketchel claimed to
have broken his right hand in the
sixth round, and this assertion was
subsequently verified.
The decision of the referee was
greeted with a mixture of cheers and
hisses. Referee Roche, after the con
test, made the .following statement:
"Ketchel was the aggressor at all
times. Furthermore, he ' landed clean
and harder punches and scored the
only knock down, in the tenth round.
Although nearly everybody seems to
think Papke slipped to the floor, there
is absolutely no doubt that Ketchel
landed a clear cut blow."
"The assassin," as Ketchel has
been christened by ring followers,
bid fair literally to live up to this
name. He forced the fighting from
the tap of the gong, and with the
exception of the third round he en
joyed a clear had through the-first
half of the battle. In the eleventh
Ketchel landed time and again with
ponderous lefts, but try as he would
he could .not find a vital place. Both
men were bleeding freely at this
stage of the battle, Papke in particu
lar - was apouting blood from his
mouth and nose until the center of
the ring resembled shambles.
A feature of the fight was the ex
treme viciousness with which both
men fought, apparently hatred bjrked
behind every punch.
When seen in his dressing room,
Ketchel gave out this 'statement: "I
broke my right hand In the sixth
round and later, In the eighth round,
I believe I dislocated my left thumb.
But for these mishaps I would have
made short work of Papke. I could
not hit effectively when opportunity
came, especially in the tenth round.
I am only too glad to give Papke
another chance." .
Ed Papke, brother and manager
of the defeated pugilist, minced no
words in showing his displeasure over
the decision. He said: "The decision
rendered this afternoon by Roche
was the "rawest" and worst I have
ever heard given in a prize ring.
Every fair minded man unhesitatingly
said Papke should have been given
a draw. I do not claim that he
should have been given the decision."
This statement of Ed Papke show
ed the sentiments of the entire Papke
contingent. The defeated, pugilist said
nothing further than that he would
fight KetcNel any time again.

el's hands improvVd the champion

celebration of the 250th anniversary
of this historic old New England
In his address to the people after a
fine military parade and civic dis
play the president, finding a theme
in the church's influence in the foun
dation of Norwich, expressed his
views on religious liberty.
The president declared amid laugh
ter that the American forefathers
came to this country ostensibly to
escape religious Intolerance, "but as a
matter of fact, In order that they
might follow out their own religious
ideas in their own way, and with a
large degree of intqlesanee toward
any other form of belief. .-.
"We have passed beyonrl that now,"
said the president, "and are ' coming
more and more to realize the right of
the individual to worship God as he
may choose."

Williams estate. Mr. Taft also rode
for a time at the head of the parade,
being immediately followed by a
battalion of midshipmen from the
United States naval academy at An
napolis. After reviewing the parade Presi
dent Taft spoke in part as follows:
"We have a great deal of disfussion
on free government, and references
are made to the declaration of in
dependence, which this day cele
brates. And some people so construe
that Instrument that they would make
it mean that any body of men, chil
dren or women are born with the in
stinct of self government so that they
can frame a government as soon' as
they begin to talk. Now that is not
"Self government has been fought
out In the history of this world and
by certain races it has been hammer
ed out by a thousand years of strug
gle. Men have taught themselves
how to govern themselves. They are
not fit to govern themselves until
they have sense and self-restraint
enough to know what is their inter
est and to give every man all that is
coming to him, according to right
and justice.
'Now, what was true with respect
to our ancestors, is true with man
races in this world today. They
have to be led on and taught the
principle lesson of self government.

to the home government for nearly
200 years, came to be the best pre

The eagle continued to scream and
flap its wings, from early dawn un
til after midnight, at the Forester's
picnic celebration at East Lake Park
yesterday. The celebration o'erleapt
even the expectations of Mr. Bundy,
the inciting force of the celebration.
The picnic had been particularly plan
ned for the ranchers to come and
have one day of solid Joy and rest
and amusement, and they had it.
Every one of the ranchers who came
with lunch basket crammed with all
manner of good things to eat and
drink left feeling that he had been
present at the best or at least one of
the best' in his life.
During the morning Companies A
and B of the National Guard met in
baseball array, Company B getting
the best of the exhibition by 12 to
11. Though it lacked in team work
and some of the umpire's decisions
were questioned, the game was a
rather good one and held the interest
of the spectators.

The different athletic races - had
many entries, and always created lots
of excitement and material for dis
cussion among the spectators.
In the afternoon, the vaudeville in
the pavilion by the players at the
Coliseum, presented" the same high
quality of acts that are seen at the
down town theater every night. Miss
Primrose was as dainty and clever
as ever, and not only answered her
encore, but entered into the spirit of
the day, and offered to accompany
ail the musical stunts of the after
noon. Otto Scheda played as he
always does, and met more en
thusiasm than on some" occasions
down town. Genaro and Theol went
through every detail of their ( wonder
ful act, and deserve a great deal of
credit for making the attempt on the
stuffy hot stage.
The cowboy tourney that was to
have taken place on the baseball field
had to be called off because of the
absence of some of the cowboys.
The first speaker of the afternoon
was Judge Phillips, of the probate
court, whose eloquent, earnest voice
rang with the spirit of liberty and
fire of patriotism. He told of the
early days in the making of the
country, the war and constructing of
the country's constitution. He men
tioned the changes that have been
made, and how different we look at
freedom, and the constitution today
than did our forefathers. He told
what constituted a true American and
what are the duties of the United
States citizen, not only toward the
nation, but also toward one another.
Crime was touched on, and also poll
tics. It was a speech that burned
deep into the heart of every listener.
Ir. J. W. Foss spoke of the past
and future of the Salt River valley.
He compared the civilization of the
old Egyptian days with the earlier
civilizations traced in Arizona, bring
ing up the relics of the mound build
ers and cliff dwellers. Dr. Koss then
went on down through the ages to
the present date, tilling of the won
derful progress that has been made
in only recent years, -and what a
country this will be in ten and fif
teen years from now. His speech was
not only interesting and instructive,
but at the same time fired the
hearer with a patriotism for the Salt
River valley that was very fitting for
the day.
The Mocking Bird quartette sang
several selections during the after
noon and evening, and brought before
the notice of music lovers four very
well balanced voices. The vocal wojk
between speeches deserves special
Many of the celebrators spent a
great deal of the time on the pond
in the boats, that had anything but a
holiday from early morning until late'
at night.
The dancing in the evening in the
pavilion was patronized by a large
crowd, the floor being packed.
The fireworks were better even
than announced and also lasted longer
than the spectatorss thought.

That is the Opinion of Some Teach
ers Gathered at Denver.
Denver, Colo., July 5. A prepara
tory course for the presidency is not
the object of the public school sys
tem of the United States, or rather
it should not be in the opinion of the
leaders of the council of education,
who spent today in a discussion of
conditions that must rule the twen
tieth century. The final session of
the council preliminary to the ses
sion of the National Educational as
sociation, was held tonight in the
Denver auditorium. Edwin G. Cooley,
former superintendent of the Chicago
schools, led the discussion of what
the American boy needs in the way
of education.
M. H. Schley, president of the Iowa
state normal school, said that uni
formity should exis among the states
in the government of schools and
better progress would be made had
the state superintendents of educa
tion wiScr powers.
The political side of the teachers'
gathering has been felt but little thus
far, except that an attempt has been
made to throw politics out of the
association. To this end it is pro
posed to nominate Elmer E. Brown,
national commissioner of education,
for president. It is said that he is
not an active candidate.
The industrial education of girls,
as well as boys formed the thread
of discourse of President L. D. Har
vey, of the National Educational As
sociation tonight before the first gen
eral session of that organization.

Greatest Crowd -Thai Ever
His Tribute to Arizona En-
thused His Hearers The
Festivities Closed - Last
Night With Two Balls
and a Great Indian Dance
Flagstaf, Ariz., July 5. (Special.)
The Fourth of July celebration here
attracted more people than were ever
in Flagstaff at one time befre. The
program began at 9:30 a m., with
a grand parade, the most attractive
feature of which was 125 Indians
riding two abreast. At 10:30 Charles
M. Rutherford, of Jerome, delivered
a patriotic address. He was follow
ed by Governor Sloan. After a few
stirring remarks intended to arouse
enthusiasm for our nation, the gov
ernor spoke words whicn made his
hearers feel patriotic for Arizona.
He said: "Our motto should be
'A Greater Arizona' " He expressed
himself strongly in favor of better
roads, of public fiighways to scenic
points of interest and for the pre
servation of -our forests. He said
Arizona has everything; her bonanzas
in rich mines, her rich farming land,
her large cattle herds, everything to
enrich man and repay him for his la
bor. Then he said "Arizona has a play
ground for those who seek pleasure
or rest, and that playground is in
Flagstaff. The region is here m the
shadow' of San Francisco peaks." He
said that enormous sums of money
which are annually spent in southern
California by Arizonians should be
spent within our own borders, where
one can find climate and points of
scenic Interest that have no equal.

Louisville, Ky., July 5. The unen
viable distinction of having made the
most notable sacrifice to patriotism
by reason of independence day cele
brations will probably fall to Louis
ville, through the death at Seymour,
Ind.. early today of Arthur Granville
Langham, former president of the
Provident Life Assurance Society, who
faled to recover from the effects of
having his right hand shattered by
the explosion of a cannon cracker
late last night. He was one of a
party of fashionable Louisville folks
spending the week nd at the home
of Langham's brother-in-law at Sey
mour. A cannon cracker was thrown
on the lawn and failed to explode.
Langham took it in his hand, re
lighted it and it burst in his grasp,
tearing his hand frightfully. He
never recovered consciousness. He
was an uncle of Baroness Speck von
Sternburg, widow of the former Ger
man ambassador.
