Twelve democrats voted for the bill while 17 republicans voted against Democrats who gave their support were: Ashurst, Arizona; Broussard, Lousiana; Harrison, Mississippi; Kendrick, Wyoming; Ransdell. Lousiana; Reed. Missouri; Robinson, Arkansas: Shields, Tenes ee: Stanley. Kentucky; Underwood, Alabama: Walsh of Massachusetts and Walsh of Montana.

Two other republicans, Du Pont, Delaware, and McLean, Conneticut, were paired against the bill. ' In referring to the armament con ference Senator Borah said he did not understand that this conference will Involve the United States bar tering away any substantial right. "I have talked with those most responsible for and concerned in the conference.' he added, "t nave had a full understanding and discussion. The fears expressed are not shared by them." Senator Lodge, Republican leader, was among those who raised the question of the armament conference. He admitted that the United States had the legal right to pass the bill, but said there were "potent reasons" against action at present, in viw of the coming conference. Senator McCormick, Republican of Illinois, expressed similar sentiments. Ar bitration was urged by Senators Lodge, Sterling, South Dakota, and others. Senator Ashurst, Democrat of Ari zona, suggested an amendment to make the bill clear that the tolls exemption should be confined to American vessels engaged "exclu- sivelv in coastwise trade, but did not offer it." Senator Borah said his bill would bo merely a construction of the Hay Pauncefote treaty, which contains a disputed clause to give equal canal privileges to vessels of "all nations," with the British contending that it does not authorize free toljs or even subsidies for American coastwise vessels. The last official declaration on the treaty was the Wilson bill of 1914 repealing the free tolls bill passed late in the Taft administration. Sen ator Borah said, adding that it was desirable there should be a later dec laration to give- force to the Ameri can position in event of arbitration. His bill, he said, would open the way for Great Britain to ask arbitration, which, he added, probably would re sult. The Republican platform -.pledges for free tolls was emphasized by Senator Borah and also Senator Willis, Republican of Ohio, who nominated President Harding at the Chicago convention. Mr. Borah said the presidential candidate had de clared often for free tolls and added "And notwithstanding the sub marining, the president has not changed his mind." Senator Ashurst. Democrat of Arl zona, urged Democrats to "keep the pledge" of the Baltimore convention which favored free tolls. Senator Pomerene. Democrat of Ohio, de clared that the Borah bill would "barter away the honor of the coun try for a ship subsidy." The subsidy -Question would be brought up later. Senator Borah de clared, stating he would advocate regulation of a tolls subsidy by the interstate commerce commission, or some other tribunal. Similar regu lations also were urged by Senator Cummins, Republican of Iowa, chair man of the interstate commerce com mittee. : o Japan Is Showing Keen Interest In Disarmament Meet Republican A. P. Leased Wire TOKIO, Oct. 9. The Washington conference on limitation of armament and far eastern questions has the center of the stage in Japan today. Not even 40 days of ceaseless rain such as Japan never before has seen, has checked the interest displayed in the forthcoming departures of Japan's representatives to the con ference.

Leased Wire LONDON, Oct. 10. The premier and other representatives of the British government and the delegates of the Dail Eireann will face each other across the conference table in the cabinet rtrom at the. premier's official residence tomorrow morning Mr. Lloyd George, members of the cabinet and several officials of the Irish office discussed this afternoon tomorrow's conference. It is under stood the procedure favored is a speech of welcome by the premier, after which he will outline the meth ods the government proposes for dealing with the various phases of the question. Mr. Arthur Griffith, the Sinn Feiner leader, is- expected to reply. The program for the first day takes the form of open conver sation with a view to arriving at some definite -basis upon which ne gotiations looking to an Irish settle ment can proceed. Either side may raise some con troversial subject. There is the question of the release of the in terned men. One delegate said to day it was not the intention to men tion this subject for the present. Nevertheless, the government is pre paring a reply to such a request and has summoned General Sir Nevil MacReady and General Tudor of the forces in Ireland, the head of the police, from Dublin to advise the government, should the proposal be made. The services of these generals will also be. useful when arrangements are suggested for stricter observance of the truce, which both the govern ment and the Sinn Feiners desire. Both generals have been charged by the Sinn Fein with provoking the people, and their orders to come to London confirms the impression that the intention is to avoid all causes of friction. Mr. Lloyd George, also has been publicly asked to brine before the conference the Sinn Fein boycott ot English goods which has been hurt- ful to British trade and has caused much irritation here. It Is not likely the conference will concern itself with this at this stage or that the Sinn Fein will agree, to remove the boycott as part of trade policy fol lowing upon a settlement. xne cabinet is said to have dis cussed the possibility of extending the scope of the conference and in viting Ulster to send delegates. This iS a matter for the premier to decide. The Sinn Fein delegates are here only as the spokesmen of those they rep resent, and the premier might Invite Sir James Craig, the Lister premier. and Lord Middleton, representative of the south of Ireland unionists, and Sir Horace Plunkett, dominion home ruler, and their friends. The SinnFein has not assented to any joint conference and It is de clared would object strongly to form ing one of a three or four party con ference. Mr. de Valera is believed to have a plan of local self government for Ulster within an Irish state, more at tractive to the northeast than its present status, and it Is probable this will be put forward at the conference. The real crux, as stated by an of ficial today, is not finance or the ex tent of Ulster's local powers, but nec essary severance of Ulster from the imperial parliament, where it now has representation it desires to maintain. The Sinn Fein desires no represen tation in the imperial parliament, and if it accepts a place in the British commonwealth it desires no closer at filiation than Canada and other do minions. The Sinn Feiners declare they are bound to set forth Ireland's claim for complete separation, which, they have pointed out. is their man date from their constituencies. Any recession from that position will be made at a price, bringing in Ulster, and the Ulster question, thus is ex pected to assume importance and may again prove the stumbling blocii to a settlement. The British delegation includes three liberals, David Lloyd George, Winston Spencer Churchill and Sir Hamar Greenwood, all of whom took part in framing Mr. Asquith's home rule bill, which Austen Chamberlain, Lord Birkenhead and Sir Laming Worth ington-Evans, the other three British representatives, as unionists, fought so bitterly against on Ulster's behalf. Since that time, however, Mr. Lloyd George has said the govern ment must safeguard Ulster's in terests. CREAM OF WHEAT HEAD DIES URGE ACTION ON RECLAMATION TO REDUCE NUiEO OF UNEMPLOYED Republican A. P. Leaied Wire WASHINGTON, OcL 10. Recom mendations for a general policy for the permanent relief of the employ ment problem and the return of com merce and business to normal were practically completed tonight by the sub-committees of the unemployment conference. Finishing touches are to be put on the suggestions tomorrow and tomor row afternoon a report is to be sub mitted to conference in open session This report is expected to embody the important remedies sugested by the committee and are said to be com nrehensive in their scope. Hearings on government reclama tion work to aid in the unemploy ment situation were held today by the committee on public works. E. F. Blaine of Seattle, Wash., repre senting the Western States Reclama tion association, declared that a rea sonable appropriation by the federal government to carry on reclamation projects already approved would give work for many thousand men. He added that his experience had shown that only about 60 per cent of the work really wanted It. Preference for former service men in reclamation employment was urged by R. C. Jones. Junior vice com mandir of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, who declared these men had been .otherwise engaged in time of prosperity and -were unable to save for a rainy day. Ottomar Hamerle. acting director of the reclamation service, said that 116.000.000 could be spent economic ally during the winter on irrigation Droiects. which would give employ ment to 16.000 men directly and that. if a loan to the reclamation fund was authorized by congress an additional $28,000,000 could be immediately ex nended on the Boulder Canyon dam California, ail-American canal, and the Arizona Parker and San Carlos projects. To complete these projects, he explained. $90,000,000 would be re ouired eventually, but during the next five months would employ between 23.000 and 30,000 men on "the work It self and between 10,000 and 15,000 more Indirectly. o ' OIL EMBARGO IN MEXICO CLOSING Epidemic of Typhoid Threatens Las Animas Republican A.

Toney may be given another chance, but the odds favor Barnes, and Snyder will go be hind the bat. Huggins still thinks Shawkey can win a game, but he has not tried Harper, and the baseball world is anxious to see what the husky portsider can do. i The club physician has again ordered Babe Ruth out of the game and the mighty swatter may not play today.

Leased Wire MEXICO CITY, Oct. 10 Paralysis of the Mexican railroad operating be tween Vera Cruz and Mexico City due to lack of fuel, the tying up of a majority of the textile industries in the city of Puebla and a general shut down of oil operations involving sev eral thousand men, are threatened by an action of the governor of the state of Vera Cruz in placing an embargo on the oil properties of El Aguila, i British concern in that state, for al leged non-payment of certain taxes. Hurried conferences among the rep resentatives of El Aguila here yes terday engaged in the formation of protest to -the federal governmen against tbejiction of the governor o Vera Cruz pending a decision of the supreme court on cases embracing the protested taxes. The properties of EI Aguila, valued at more than 3.000,000 pesos, were placed under embargo by the Vera Crug authorities last Saturday when the Mexican supreme court was start ing consideration of the amparo cases and according tn newspapers here, the Vera Cruz action was taken be cause it was believed the federal tri bunal would doubtless rule that the state had over stepped its author ity in levying taxes to which objection is made by Ed Aguila. The Mexican railroad, British owned, is dependent for its fuel sup ply upon El Aguila, also British owned, and if the company stauld suspend operations doubtless there would be a tie up until other ar rangements could be made. Today's newspapers assert more than 3.000 men are out ot work at Puebla due to the closing down of the plants from various causes. A law permitting workmen to share in prof'ts recently was passed by the Vera Cruz legislature and is now partly in effect. A law identical in form is beint considered by the Pu ebla legislature. Both states have adopted equally drastic tax laws, the application of which is said to have caused numerous large concerns to announce their elsewhere. TOT HOLDS GI ANTS , .

RUffl BEATS BUT BUNT IN FOURTH INNING TURNING TIDE f BR YANKS New York Americans Win Edge In Series With 3 To 1 Victory; Fifth Game Will Be Pla'yed Today Republican A. P. Leased Wire NEW TORK. Oct. 10 A bunt in a baseball game doesn't hold a candle to a home run as a spectacular feat, but a little bunt which Babe Ruth laid down on the grass at the Polo Grounds today showed how much im- ' portance sometimes attaches to the less sensational performance. The Babe's home runn the ninth of Sun day's game was for the Yankees as. a team just one more run and noth ing more. His bunt in the fourth in ning of today's game, the fifth of the 1921 wmrld series, proved the turn ing point of the contest, which was won by the American leaguers, 3 ta 1, over their National league opponents. The victory again gave the Tan kees the edge in the series which now stands: Americans Won 3; lost 2. Nationals Won 2; lost 3.

The way had been opened for a tally and Ruth scored It a mo men later when Bob Meusel shot! a double to left, which his brother Emil on the Giant team seemed somewhat slow in handling. This ultimately proved to be the winning run for the Yankees, but another was speedily added when Meusel scored on Ward's sacrifice fly. Tnis ended the scoring for the day. Hoyt, who had seemed a bit unsteady in the early Innings, settled down behind his two run lead and pitched a heady game which the the big guns in the Giant lineup guessing when safe blows were nec essary to put runs across. Hoyt was hit more freely than in his shutout game of lasT Thursday, as the 10 safeties for the Nationals attest, but he would have had another scoreless game to his credit with a little bet ter support in the first inning, which witnessed the Yankee only fielding bobble, a me3s made by McNally of Georre Bums' hard grounder.
