den in The Senate.
Washington. Aug. 10. The New
Mexico-Arizona statehood bill was put
up to President Taft today for his
expected veto, when the house con
curred with the senate amendments to
the measure. - '
Already both houses have 'canvassed
the possibility of passing the measure
over the veto, which will be based on
the judiciary recall provision of the
""bill. Some of the senatorial friends
of statehood have reached the con
clusion that its passage over the veto
is impossible, figuring that of the
.fifty-three votes cast,for the bill fully
a dozen will be lost without any
source from which the deficit cai.bo
made good to meet the required sixty
votes on the second attempt.
There is no doubt felt as to the pas
sage of the bill again in the house and
some of the senators contend that its
success in the house will strengthen
it in the senate.
Today's action of the house and
which both democrats and republicans
applauded was taken without any roll
'Greatest Changes In British Constitu

-- London, Aug. 10 Premier Asqulth's
government which claims to represent
the-democracy of Great Britain en
forced its will upon the peerage tonight
by the narrow vote of 11 3to 114. By
this vote the house of lords decided to
apcept' what the liberals contend is
the will of the people, and adopted
Viscount Morley's motion to not insist
upon the lord's amendment to the palia
mentary bill, which practically limits
the power of, lords to two years' sus
'pensory veto and vastly increases the
prerogatives of the house of commons.
The great constitutional struggle
which began when the lords, nearly
two years ago, rejected the budget of
David Lloyd George, chancellor of ex
chequer, is ended for the time at least
and with It the greatest change in
Great Britain's working constitution
since the passage of the reform bill.

mated at between $40,000,000 and $50,

Stand-pat republican leaders of the
senate and house flocked to the White
House today to Inform President Taft
that they would fight to the last ditch
before they would allow cither the
senate or the house to pass any meas
ure over the presidential veto.
"Wc do not propose to let any at
tempt at making laws over the head
of the president go through without a
fight" said the republican whip, John
Dwight. Senator Murray Crane of
Massachusetts backed up the state
"This statehood matter" said Mr.
Dwight, "is not political in itself, but
this overriding of the president's veto
is intended to make politics against
him and humiliate him before the
country. Under these circumstances.

will rally to him."
It was indicated today that not only
were - the republicans rallying their
forces but that the democrats are
using every means to gather Into
Washington all their ntembers of the

by Col. Roosevelt
The Government Should
Build "Railroad to the
Coalfields From Control
ler Bay and Establish a
Liberal Leasehold System.
New York, Aug. 10. Ex-Prcsident
Roosovslt has an article- entitled
"Alaska Again" Jn tho current num
ber of tho Outlook. After taking is
sue with tho newspaper statement
that during the Roosevelt adminis
tration tho same course had been
pursued as has been pursued later In
connection with Controller Bay,
Roosevelt discusses some general
phases Alaskan development and
adds: -
"The government must itself con
trol the development of Alaska, and
adopt as the guiding principle the
idea of shaping tho development in
the interest primarily of the peo-
plo as a whole, the syndicate or
other developing agencies thus re
ceiving benefit only as an incident to
conferring it.
"I do not think the task very dif
ficult one, if only we, tho people,
personally and through 6ur represen
tatives approacli it with this pur-
poso clearly in mind, and if wo
insist that tho agents of the gov
ernment act wdth an understanding
of the needs of tho people and a re-
soluto purpose to sco that thoso
needs of the peoplo aro accomplished
even though it be necessary to over
ride the representatives of the great
interests who wish to prevent Alas
kan development unless shaped pri
marily for the benefit of thoso in
terests." "The articles assumed that I was
deceived by Garfield and Pinchot.
It is hardly necessary to say that
any such assumption must bo made
either with Intent to be humorous
or with a full knowledge that it is
a falsehood.
"I was In a peculiar sense rcspon
slble for every act of Pinchot and
Garfield when they held office un
der me. They represented to a very
especial degree the policies and prin
ciples which I had especially at
heart and while of course, there nec
essarily many actions I took on
their recommendation with details
under which it was impossible for
mo to bo acquainted, I was ab
solutely and .entirely cognizant of the
principles in accordance with which
each one of these act was taken.
and each act faithfully represented
tho putting into effect of the prin
ciples in which I believed and which
I had laid down for tho guidance of
my administration.
'At the time the eliminations at
Eyak and Valdez Arm w'cre made no
suggestion had been, made to me
from any source, nor was there any
public knowledge that there was the
slightest danger of the Guggenheim
syndicate of any other syndicate, ob
taining control of Alaska, as the de
velopments during tho past three
years have shown to bo tho case, and
as lias been a matter of public noto
riety for the last two years.
Incldentiy 'ancnt tho assertion that
Ryan lie had no Interests whatever
n the Guggenheim syndicate, let mo
point out the explicit character of
the Cunningham affidavit that the
Guggcnhelms had no interest in thoso
claims; and, in any event our en
tire past industrial history gives us
warrant for saying that. If tho Ryan
road is built as planned, it will be
but a matter of timo and probably a
very short time, before Ryan's 'road
and the Guggcnhelms interests are
merged into one.
The state of affairs brought to
light during Uio administration of
Ballinger showed conclusively and
for the first time that wo had to
fight against monopoly in connec
tion with tho development of Alaska
or to speak more properly, the ex
ploitation Alaska, by a great syndi
cate, for 'the solo benefit of that syn
dicate. When tho eliminations at
Eyak and Yaldcz Arm wero made,
hot a revelation as regards the Gug
genheim syndicate any other syndK
cato had been brought to my atten
tion, or, as far as I knew,, or knew,
to tho attention of anyone as such a
state of things as the Ballinger in
vestigation showed to exist..
The elmniations at Eyak and Yal
dcz Arm have no more bearing upon
the elimination of the Controller Bay
tract than have- previous eliminations
n tho Rock Mountain states.
"I repeatedly urged that the laws
pertaniing to Alaska be amended, as
I still urge that they be amended.
In the eastern states we suffered
from tho ownership of coal and own
ership railways havo been permitted
to fall into the same hands. What
havoc such a combination can work
is shown when, during the anthracite
strike, the people of a largo section
of the country were threatened' with
a winter coal famlno which would
havo caused a disaster great as those
of the civil war. The effort to rem
edy this state of affairs by govern
ment action, after it had been per
mitted to ariso because of govern
ment inaction, necessarily was
fraught with hardship and suffering
upon many innocent holders of se
curities. "It is, to my mind tho duty of the
United States government to pre
vent similar conditions arising in
Alaska I do not believe in tho poli
cy of state ownership as a general
thing; but I am quite willing to see
the Panama railroad owned and gov
erned by the government as it is
actually and in tho same way, if dif
ficulty occurs in connection with
what has been done in Controller
Bay I feel that it would be a good
thing for tho United States to build
and operate the short line railway
with terminals to connect tho bay
with coal fields. Then, with tho coal
fields given over to privato develop
ers on a lease hold system as sim
ple as possiblo and on such terms
as to guarantee an amplo profit to
those engaged in the work of devel
opment, trouble in connection with the
Alaska coal fields would vanish.
"I have" said already that the re
sources of Alaska must bo develop
ed. I advocate with all my heart the
condition of development being made
such as to give amplo return to
thoso willing to undertake the work,
and , as there is an element of haz
ard in the work I prefer to see the
government err, if at all, on the
side of liberality in making those
conditions. A bill lin principal smch
as , or at least, on the general, lines
of, that introduced by Robinson of
Arkansas, ought to become a law."
A Suggestion that the Control In
clude Regulation of Prices
Washington, Aug. 10. George W.
Perkins, financier and director of tho
United States Steel corporation made
some striking recommendations to
day' with respect to the government's
control of corporations. Tho witness
before the houso steel trust investi
gating committee declared that the
existing laws wero seriously threat
ening the big business Interests and
their rigid enforcement was making
It impossible for corporations to con
tinuo their operations in conformity
to tho statutes.
Said he, "the great corporations
grown up under tho demands at ex
isting conditions, can no longer sue
cessfully exist under tho Sherman.
anti-trust law as now rigidly en
"Tho government's dissolution of
tho Standard Oil company served as
a red flag warning to every cor
poration in the United States. Some
thing of a constructive nature must
be done by the government with re
ference to the control of corporations
and rather than for present condi
tions to continue, it would be better to
go the limit in permitting govern
ment regulation of prices.
"Tho very reason that the subsid
iary companies of great corporations
can vioiaio me law witnoui mo
knowledge of the officers of a holding
company is that tho law prevents
such corporation from operating and
ruling tho subsidiary concerns, In
stead of merely advising them
"One great stride toward averting
financial panics in New York could
be made if the government would pre
vent the banks of Chicago and tho
middle west from loaning money on
call in New York during the sum
mer at cheap rates and suddenly
galling It back in tho fall for crop
movement making big money and
trouble in tho New York market.
"The establishment of a govern
ment bureau which could give ac
curate information . to the public as
to the condition of corporations
would be an active Inducement to
people to make wise investments.
"One of itho most striking de
velopments of the present system of
conducting business on a large scale
is tho dividing of great interests in
to tho hands of many Investors,
rather than concentrating them in
the hands of a few."
On tho question of wages, the
witness said It had always been the
policy of the -Steel corporation to
maintain wages. Ho related that In
1009 he and Judge Gary, with ac-
qulcsence J. P. Morgan and H. C.
Frjck, refused to cut wges when Wll
lim E. Corey, then president and
other directors urged a cut because
their competitors had slashed prices
and reduced wages.
"Did the United States Steel cor
poration ever trade in , it's stock?"
'Not In the sense of speculation.
It has purchased stock for the pro
fit sharing plan and purchased
bonds for sinking purposes. Tho
corporation has scrupuously avoided
anything resembling speculation in
it's Fecurltles."
"How much stock has the King
of England In the Steel corpora
tion?" chairman Stanley ask.l.
"I don't know, Mr. Perkins said.
"He never told me." '
Definite Announcement Yesterday That $400,000 Rad
Been Appropriated for Large Plant Here
Los Angeles, August 10. (Special.) The Southern
Pacific today announced important plans in connection
with Phoenix and' the immediate territory. An appro

shops at Phoenix, the shops to be provided with facilities
for doing heavy work.
These will be in addition to those to be rebuilt at
Tucson burned in an incendiary fire a year or two ago.
The new branch from' Mesa to Chandler will be
opened for business September 1.
The foregoing definite announcement of the pur
pose of the Southern Pacific company to locate its shops
in Phoenix will occasion little surprise though a great
deal of- gratification. About two years 'ago the railroad
company began the purchase of several tracts of land
along the right of way of the Arizona Eastern 'and it was
then assumed that one of the tracts would becomo. a sito.

houses on conference on the wool and
free list bills is called for tomorrow.
Senator La Follette and Representa
tive Underwood, who constitute the
working of the sub-committee of that
organization are apart tonight only to
tho extent of two and one-half per

prospect that they will bridge "this
narrow chasm before tomorrow's meet
Mr. Underwood is willing to go to
271s percent on ordinary raw wool and
La Follette is willing to come own to
30 percent.
There will be little difficulty about
agreeing on the free list bill of Mr.
Underwood's wish for another senate

a modification eliminating corn from

Pope Pius tonight is better and for the
first time since he was taken ill re
cently of laryngitis which later be
came complicated with an acute attack

such connections would be unwise this
