Washington. July 29 The Payne
Alilrirh tariff bill is completed. An
agreement on all disputed points was
reached this afternoon and at 4:55 p.m.
the report was signed by the republi
can conferees. It will get to the house
tomorrow and be voted on by that
body or Saturday.
The senate on Monday will begin the
consideration of the measure. The
senate session may continue all next
Halted by the mandate of the pres
ident, the tariff conferees were com
pelled to turn back and revise their
rates on lumber and gloves. Hides
will be free, and the rates on shoes and
other leather products will be reached.
When the conferees fixed the lum
ber and glove rates yesterday, shading
slightly the higher rates on each, they
were so certain the president would
consent to that arrangement that no
tices were sent to the democratic con
ferees to be present at 10 o'clock to
day to approve or disapprove of the
report. The president had other ideas
of what the rates should be however,
and he expressed them forcibly in a
He said the rate on lumber should
not be more than Jl !5 per loon for
rough, with the differentials fixe! by
the sennte on finished lumber. He de
clared also that the senate rates on
gloves, which are the same as the
Kincley rates, and much less than the
house rates must be adopted in order
to secure his approval of the bill. The
president also specified that hides
must go on the free list and that the
house rates on boots and shoes and
either leather manufactures must be
reduced. Hosiery too, he thought
should he reduced below the house
rate, which was advanced over the
Dingley duties.
It was not until after the democratic
m mbi rs had assembled that the
White House communication was re
ceived. When Aldrich read the letter,
he called his republican associates to
an adjoining room. 'The letter was
discussed and it was decided that the
democrats should be informed that the
conferees' report had not been advanc
d to the stage it could be submitted
to them
After the democrats had reached the
corridors they held a little conference
of their own. Representative Champ
Clark, was called back to the chamber
and was given a copy of the bill as the
conferees intend to report it. except for
the schedules discussed by the pres
ident in his letter. The democrats then
went into session. After the democrats
left there was a scene. Messrs. Ford
ney and Calderhead went to the White
House and from there to the office of
Speaker Cannon and back to the
chamber conference. letter they con
ferred with a number of northwestern
senators who were interested In the
lumber question.
Mr. Cannon hurried to the confer
ence room. He has been one of the
chief supporters of the house rate on
gloves. There was no opportunity to
compromise 'in gloves. The president
said the rates must not be advanced
beyond the figures named in the Ding
ley bill which ore the same as the sen
ate duties except for the fact that
Schmanchen gloves, were reduced by
the senate from $1.75 a dozen pairs to
$1.25. These rates were accepted. On

lumber, some concessions were made
and the president's instructions were
complied with to the letter. Rough
lumber was made dutiable at $1.25 per
1000 feet; finished on one side, $1.75;
finished on two sides or one side
planed and tongued-and grooved, $2.15:
finished on three sides, $2.5214. and
finished on four sides, $2.90. To con
ciliate Messrs. Piles and Jones, the
conferees, adopted the senate rate of
50 per cent per 1000 on shingles in-t
stead of the house rate of 30 cents!
In order to obtain the support of Mr.
Heyburn the differential on pig lead
in bars was restored to 2 cents ier
In view of the action of the con
ferees in putting hides on the free list
a concession also was made to the cat
tle industry .by taking tallow off the
free list and making it dutiable at 1H
cents per pound.
The rates on hosiery were fixed by
Increases of about 20 per cent in
grades valued $1. $150 and $2 a dozen
pairs. This Is over the senate rates
but a material decrease from" the
house advances. On all other values
of hosiery the Dingley rates reenacted
by the senate were retamed.
The minority in conference was In
session most of the afternoon. . They
calleil in a number of tariff experts In
order to compare the conference bill
with the existing law. - When their
session adjourned tonight, it was an
nounced that the experts had proceed
ed far enough to show, that the new
bill increases the rates from 1 to 3
per cent over the ad valorem duties of
the Dingley bill.
But the Leader Fell Into a State of
Xew York, June 29. Usually active
speculative stocks fAl into lethargy to
day but the diversion interest to the
less prominent quarters of the list rect
ified the market, removed a dull ap
pearance and supplied an interest that
gave a tone of strength to the whole.
The grangers were neglected and this
added to the most Immovable course
of Union Pacific and United States
Steel compared with their recent ag
gressive leadership was largely respon
sible for the lethargic appearance of
the market.
New York Central continued to re
flect the supposed growth of the Har
riman Influence and this with a good
advance in Southern Pacific, Reading
and a number of the less conspicuous
specialties" was sufficient to keep up
the tone of the whole market. Bonds

Chicago, July 29. Uncertainty re
garding the extent of damage, if any.
to the spring wheat crop in the north
west by black rust kept the wheat
market in a flurry today and prices
moved over a wide spread.
Toward the end of the first hour of
the session a sharp rally occurred on
buying, based on confirmation from two
different sources of damage by rust in
one section of North Dakota., On this
bulge the price of the distant deliveries
touched the highest point of the day,
September advancing from $1.04 to
$1.06. During the day July sold be
tween $1.07'i and J1.09V4. The market
closed weak with July $1.08; Septem
ber, ?1.04.
High temperatures in sections of the
corn belt induced considerable cover
ing by shorts in corn prices resulting
in a firm tone for July and Septem
ber. At the close prices were itic

Mass Meeting Held In Reack
secker Hall .
Call Authorized for School
District Meetings to Elect
Delegates to a General
Committee Meeting to
Formulate Answers to the
Questions of Committee.
Whereas, A congressional committee
is announced to visit the Salt river
valley for the purpose of obtaining
Information relating to national irri
gation under the Tonto reservoir pro
ject; and
Whereas, It is the desire of the
farmers and water users of the north
side of Salt river to present to the
congressional committee their views
in response to the printed questions
propounded by said committee; and
Whereas, This mass meeting of,
farmers and water users having lieen
called for the purpose of giving ex
pression to the sentiments of the
farmers and water users in response
to said invitation; therefore, be it
Resolved, That we heartily endorse
and approve of the act of June 17,
1902, known as the reclamation act,
and we endorse and approve of the
territorial stautes governing the op
prupriation and use of water, we com
mend and approve of the service and
distribution of water for irrigation
purposes, barring the failure and in
ability of the reclamation service to
furnish for purposes of irrigation
(during the summer of 1909) the
water stored in the reservoir, which
failure has prevented the service of
an adequate supply; and be it fur
ther Resolved, That we disapprove of
the organization and existence of the
Salt River Valley Water Users' asso
ciation as being ill advised and pre
mature In that its existence was not
contemplated under Sec. 6. of the recla
mation act until after the return to
the government of payments required
by said irrigation act or the major
portion of the lands irrigated from
the waters of any of the works pro
vided by said act; and be It further
Resolved, That it is the sense of
this meeting that said Salt River
Valley Water1 Users' association has
no good and sufficient reason for its
existence no actual service to per
form of assistance to the I. S. re
clamation service; that it is a use
less, and expensixe burden to the
farmers; and be it further
Resolved, That it is the sense of
this meeting that the membership of
the Salt River Valley .Water Users
association was largely, if not wholly,
obtained lry- representation to the
farmers that unless they joined said
association the government would not
undertake the construction of the
Roosevelt: be it further
Resolved, That it is the sense of
this meeting that the practice of the
reclamation service of charging water
users not members of said association
a higher rate for service of water
than to members of said association
is illegal and without authority of
law and Is for the sole purpo.se of
forcing water users to Join said as
sociation and help tn-ar the burden of
high salaried officials and their ex
penses for a long period of years dur
ing which time they are rendering no
assistance either towards construction
of irrigation works or the service of
water thereirom; all of which is be
ing fully and well done by the U. S.
R. S. officials.
The above resolutions were adopted
toward the close of a mass-meeting
of water users in Reacksecker hall, Al
hambra. last night by a vote of 8 to 5.
A motion was offered by Mr. Gulley.
and Was later adopted, that the chair
man of the meeting be instructed to
request that a mass-meeting of water
users whether land owners and mem
bers of the association or not. be call
ed In each school district in the irri
gation district, to elect three delegates
to a convention or delegates to be held
later, which., body should outline the
answers it desires to make to the ques
tions asked by the senatorial commit
tee to visit the valley next October,
and provide a way of presenting the
answers either by an executive com
mittee or otherwise. It was provided
that the delegates to be elected should
be members of the water users' asso
cition, though any water user may
participate in the mass-meetings.
A subsequent motion authorized the
chairman of the meeting to name the
date of these mass-meetings which are
to be held simultaneously and to pub
lish the notice of them in the Pheonix
papers. The chairman, G. R. Brewster,
later announced next Thursday, Aug.
5, as the date of the mass-meetings
and said he would send in the official
call later.
The meeting was late In assembling
and about 9 o'clock it was called to
order by Mr. Gulley, there being be
tween twenty ami twenty-five in at
tendance. Mr. Brewster was made
chairman and Mr. Gulley secretary.
Mr. Brewster stated that the meeting
was a general mass-meeting called to
take the Initiative' In getting all the
districts to organize and send dele
gates to a larger committee meeting
for the purpose disclosed tn the raoi
tlon referred to nbove. ' Mr. Sam Bar-,
rett 8Mike favorably to the project
saying that an "there had been -some
hitch between the Water Users' -association
and some of Its members a
good many .farmers thought they
should make answer to the senatorial
committee direct. - i
The secretary rend a list .of the
questions submitted by the committee,
which are long and have been hereto
fore published and" which close by in
viting the water users to mention In
their answer any cause of dissatisfac
tion or grievance .they may desire to
Dr. Hughes was called upon and said
that he came to listen rather than to
speak, however he would say a few
words. - He said there are two Interests
concerned In the water system of the
valley, nhe speculator who farms at his
desk or back east and the man who Is
personally engaged in farming his own
land. He said he believed it was nec
essary that the latter class be -represented
in putting the answers before
the committee. That there are wrongs
practiced, he said, there was no ques
tion, when men with alfalfa, canta
loupes or beets or. other crops buy
water and a zarrjero dictates to them
how many hours they shall each have
for the use of the water. He thought
that all who had bought water were
entitled to it no matter what they
raised. He then stated that the farm
ers are supposed to get water through
the Arizona canal but it is not large
enough to supply the water and there
has not been a step taken to correct
the situation. He said, "We have been
short of water this year when we
would have had plenty if the canal had
not been overlooked. We have lost
hundreds of thousunds of dollars this
year because we could not get water
when it waa in the river." .
Mr. Wh1s spoke at considerable
length,' dwelling first on the necessity
of having practical men to represent
the farmers rather than theoretical
men. The latter, lie said, were doubt
less as honest as anybody, but' they
had no practical knowledge of Irriga
tion. The government, lie said, had
come in good faith to help the farm
ers and has demonstrated It with its
millions, wherefore the people must
stand together with the government,
but the latter, while sending its best
qualified men had sent theoretical
men who. If they failed In one point,
failed In all, and what the people
need Is practical men at the head
of their ditches. He said there must
be practical irrigators In charge and
then each would get the water he
pays for, no matter what he raises.
and without discrimination. He fa
vored the. plan before the meeting as
a step in the light ."..'roction. He
criticised the distributlngx system at
some length, saying they should have
men who undertsood it from a practi
cal standpoint. J. P. Ivy had told
him of a fine lateral in his neighlior-
hood, but there were others where
such a system was lacking.
Mr. Gulley said it occurred to him
that the speakers were hammering
the wrong people. The laterals are
all right; the government is fixing
them as fast as possible and taking
the worst places first. It Is not per
fect yet. and Is not always the fault
of the reclamation service that men
do not get the water that belongs to
them. The worst fault of the service
was In not enlarging the Arizona ca
nal. But the real grievance of the
farmers, he thought, was against the
officers of the association who have
helped get water on unirrigated lands.
He believed the high salaried officials
of the association should be done
away with, and even the association
itself which, he contended, had lieen
organized several years too soon.
Mr. Hedgpeth agreed with Mr. Gul
ley that there had been extravagance
in the association, but the senators
don't care anything about local
troubles that can be rectified at the
ballot box, though they will be in
terested in knowing how the reclama
tion service has turned water to
sugar beets and cantaloupes that
should belong to others. He believed
in neighborhood meetings to select
delegates and let them outline the
The next speaker, whose name was
not learned, agreed with Mr. Hedg
peth. Mr. Gulley then read the reso
lutions printed atiove and they became
the subject of discussion.
The next speaker was a gentleman
by the name of Smith. He injected
a little humor by inferring that he
was known as "Contrary" Smith. He
said he was opposed to the present
system which charged him $36 for wa
ter and then let twenty acres of alfalfa
go dry, as against the old canal sys
tem that only charged him $18.75 for
the same amount of water. He, said
in the good old days Mr. Miner could
sell a man his water in fifteen min
utes and now it takes two men and a
woman to sell It to him and across at
another table sits two more men and
a woman and he didn't know how
many more there migtit be scattered
In the offices. He said he didn't think
Mr. Reed knew very much about water
and while Mi1. Hancock might be prac
tical he was under Mr. Reed. He said
the farmers had a big priority lawsuit
they had to pay for and now he no
ticed that a person who had just ar
rived here could get as much water
as an old timer. He arraigned the
reclamation service quite severely,
though in a later speech he said he
did not want to be put down as op
posed to the reclamation service
though he thought we had entirely too
much of it and it ought to be cut off
J. P. Ivy made a long address, the
first half of which was a fine testi
monial to the reclamation service.
There was too much of it for even a
synopsis. He spoke of the new later
als and his faith that the engineers
knew what they were doing and they
are doing a great work;' one to last
for generations. But getting down to

Madrid, July 29. It was officially
announced tonight that the cavalry at
Barcelona succeeded today in driving
into a square the principal bands, of
revolutionists against whom the ar
tillery opened fire, causing great
losses. The survivors surrendered.
Tlie official statement further says it
now remains only to overcome the
small groups in the villages near Barcelona-
Premier Maura announced to
night a favorable report from Barce
lona, "The arrival of reinforcements,"
said the premier, "will permit the
suppression of the outbreak."
Throughout the day, however, ad
vices indicated disturbances in Cala
lonia had been only partly subdued.
Although the government had suc
ceeded In' getting troops through to
certain of the disaffected (mints. The
lines of communication which have
been cut everywhere in Catatonia have
in part been repaired. In Madr:d
and other cities there have been loud
muttering and the serious situation
in Morocco gave the opportunity for a
rising of revolutionhts at Catalonia in
protest against sending other troops.
The recruiting system has served to
increase the distentions of the public;

News from Barcelona, the center of
the revolutionary outbreaks. Is ex
ceedingly meager and unsatisfactory.
From Lisbon comes a report that the
revolutionists are using, bombs and
that 100 persons were killed and 200
wounded during the earlier stages of
the conflict.
The Moorish army is marching on
Alhucemas and a warship has been
hurriedly dispatched from Melilla to
aid the garrison. Insurrections and
outbreaks are reported from many
points in Spain. At Granollers two
convents have been burned while at
Cas-iadela.se the civil guard was
disarmed and imprisoned in the bar
racks. The revolutionists are active in
Llansa and Figneras where the rail
roads have been torn up. Financial

Hendaye, July 29. Advices receiv
ed today from exceptionally well In
formed source In Madrid, depict the
Hltu.it ion both in the interior and in
the exterior, as being more critical
than at any time since the Cuban
war. All though the government
seems to give out the impression that
the movement in Catillonia is an
archistic and simply a protest against
the war in Morocco and the policy
of Premier Maura, there are the grav
est reports that it is a wide revolu
tionary outbreak which a combina
tion of republicans and social revolu
tionists have been preparing for a
long time.
The desperate Moors, drunk with
their success, believe they can drive
the Spanish forces into the sea. Gen.
Marina's men are worn out by con
tinual fighting and the general has
asked for 75,000 reinforcements.
Lisbon, July 29. Refugees from
Barcelona say the city is in a state
of complete anarchy, the population
being in open rebellion against the
government representative. They say
the terrorists are using dynamite
bombs freely, causing great destruc
tion of property and loss of life. The
most violent scenes occurred at
meetings called to protest against the
war in Morocco and thousands of
armed men in heavy barricades re
sisted thi attacks of the troops in
pitched battles.
During the first few days of fight
ing, the refugees declare, more than
100 persons were killed and several
hundred wounded.
The hostile feeling against the Mo

torney Jerome's examination of Thaw
last evening in the supreme court
hearing Thaw's application for release
from Mattewan. All told, yesterday
and today. Thaw faced Jerome's light
ning thrusts for ten hours yet he held
his own at all times and tomorrow he
will be in the hands of his friends. His
attorney, Charlea Morschauser, expects
to call him in the morning. This ex
amination may be as long as Jerome's,
and after it the district attorney may
have a few more questions to ask.
Notwithstanding the mental strain
of his examination. Thaw labored late
tonight with his attorney in Justice
Mills' office going over the exhibits
used by Mr. Jerome in his rapid fire of
cross questions. These consisted of
various papers containing notes and
drawings found in Thaw's cell at the
Toombs after he was sent to Matte
wan. After court adjourned Mrs. William
Thaw, the prisoner's mother, gave out
an interview in which she said the
production of these papers by the state
proved the charges she .made in a
printed pamphlet that he had been
hurried to the asylum without being
allowed to get his clothes or other ef
fects in his cell.
