While there is a possibilltj of re

which passed the house jesterday, it
receled a body blow in the senate

measure stood by -without protest, al

mittee on constitutional amendments,
not to be reported back to the sen

tho senate of the suffrage bill, but
tho motion did not so state.
Opposition is to Method
There was a feeble effort to make
tho consideration of the bill at an
earlier date, by Senator llubbell. who
fcugwsted April 19. but he only mus
tered four otes for his suggestion,
while on the later dato fourteen
agreed. Had the bill been forced to
a vote this morning. It. would hae
been killed, for thero is a strong sen
timent In the senate which takes the
view that the measure should be ini
tiated and not approved and and sub
mitted. The principal advocate of
such procedure Is Pirns, of Cochise,
who, however, showed fairness In not
opposing the move to put off consid
eration, ami to give the friends of the
(bill the chance to feel that while
there is Ue hope remains.
New Legislation Proposed
Several new bills were Introduced
during the day, although the house
only held a morning session. Cocke,
of Maricopa, had a bill taxing auto
mobiles $5 per year, and limit ot
sreed not to exceed lifteen miles an

Congress Accuses Officials
of Participation in
Heinous Offense
WASHINGTON, April !. Taft and
Secretary Stimson were arraigned se
verely in a sensational report in the
Ainsworth case, to the house, by the!
military affairs committee. Secre-'
tary Stimson Is charged with having i
committed "a great and Irreparable'
wrong," and a "flagrant misuse of'
official authority" when in February
he suspended General Ainsworth from
his duties as adjutant general of the'
i army, and charged him with In su-i
bordinatlon. That the president andi
secretary pejudged the case; that the
accusations against the general were
based upon prejudice, nnd that thei
secretary of war has an "erroneous!
idea" of his relations with congress,!
are. somo of the other conclusions j
reached by the majority of the com-,
I mlttee, of which Hay. of Virginia, Is
1 chairman. i
Following Aalnsworth's relief from I
duty, when a court martial seemed !
fcrobable. the president permitted him1
to retire from the army because of!
his long service. The report fol
lowed an Investigation of Ainsworth's
relfef from duty. Criticizing this re
lief of Aainsworth, the report de-
Clares: "Tho worst feature of It was
that this officer of long and distln-
gulshed service, had no tribunal, to j
which he could appeal with any hopei
of justice and fair treatmenL" I
Can Find no Wrong j
The majority of Uie committee :
concluded the general was guilty oti
no act which justified suspension,;
"and that the charges had an origin
In the determination to drive Ains
worth from acthe service, and have
'nothing to support them but a bare
assertion, coupled with misrepresen
tation and a suppression of the
The report then goes on to say that
It Is incredible of belief that Stimson
Jbelleved Aainsworth guilty of the)
charges In the address.
'"Some other reason must have ac-l
'tuated the secretary of war, and that
'reason Is not hard to find. Your com-,
'mlttee, being familiar with all phases .
of the legislative features of the
army appropriation bill, can readily'
account for this violent assault on I
General Aainsworth.'
Stimson Talked Back
It is pointed out that Ainsworth
favored the five year enlistment plan
in the army bill, which was opposed,
by other officers and generals of the
staff, and that Stimson's letter of sus.
pension to the general wast sent onj
the day this feature of the bill wasj
being discussed In the house. Stim-
son's comment to the house when hoi
sent the papers In the case to effect,
his action, "was not to be construed;
as a recognition of the authority of
the house or any of Its committees
to require of the chief executive a
statement of his official action," Is
criticized severely.

Jojutla. Morelos, an imjiortant com
mercial center, today, and 500 of
their number killed In a battle, ac
cording to dispatches made public
iy the department of the Interior to
night. Jojutla fell into the hands of
a Zapata band several iiays ago. To
day the federals surrounded the town
ana stormed it from all sides. Artil

The federal loss is placed at three
officers and forty men killed and
wounded. . ..,
Alfonso Barrera Zambro, nephew oi

rebels Is denied.
J1MINEZ, April 9. Developments
of the last few days have resulted In
a situation almost identical with that
existing just prior to the battle which
ended with a fedpral defeat at Cor
ralitos seventeen days ago. The fed
erals, under the immediate command
of General Tellez are at Conejos, for-xy-six
miles south of Escalon, where
the vanguard of the rebel army Is lo
cated. The rebel commanding offi
cers are Generals Campas, Argumedo
nnd Murillo Geueral Salazar is ex

while Orozco will direct the campaign

inltiatie of the rebels there will be
no fight for t-omo iM.
The federals continue the operation
of military trains between Bcrmejillo
and Conejos and rumors come of the
presence or government troops near
Santa Rosalia. It was near this
place the enemy cut the wires last
night. At headquarters a report re
garding the enemy In that quarter Is
discredited and the wire cutting is at
tributed to bandits.

New York Leaders in Doubt
as to Best Policy for
the President
ROCHESTER, April 9. The repub
lican state convention helds its first i
session today and after the "keynote
speech" of Temporary Chairman
Nicholas Murray Butler, adjourned
until tomorrow, to permit tho com I
mittees to draft n platform, select
four delegates at large to the nation
al convention and try to determine
whether it will be best for the inter
est of Taft to send an Instructed del
egation to Chicago.
The resolutions committee with
Congressman Vreeland as chairman
worked well into the night formulat
ing the platform which Chairman
Barnes desires to present as a model
for adoption at the national conven
tion. A thousand and odd delegate were
discussing tonight whether it is ex
pedient to instruct the delegation for
Taft but It U generally believed a sat
isfactory solution will be reached be
fore the convention meets tomorrow.
Barnes and other leaders who oppose
the Instructions said they would not
recede from the position and that
they had a majority of votes to sui
port their position. Senator Root
ana Chairman Koenlg. of New York
county, are strong In the opinion thst
delegates should be instructed.
Until the platform is completed it
was decided to susend further con
sideration of the selection of dele
gates and their instruction. With
ter to the secretary of war, upon
which much of the charge Is based,
is defended.

Against Woman Suffrage.
Chicago voted two to one against
suffrage, The question was not on
the ballots outside the city.
Roosevelt's victory was not a re
specter of territory. He carried tho
home ward of Congressman McKln
ley, Taft's manager, Champaign; and
was successful in the se-enteenth
dlftrlct where Smith, the state man
ager lives and in Cannon's home In
Danville, ho polled 1S-J4 to Taft's 122T.
LaFollette polled a small vote. In
Cook county where it appeared tho
heaviest he had about 14.4-10 whero
Roosevelt's apparent vote is SC.144,
and that of T?ft 52.0C4. He ran much
stronger down tho state.
Champ ' Clark's candidacy met just
the opposite result In Chicago he
has an apparent majority, based on
more than three-quarters of the total
number of precincts of 90,000 or about
four to one for Wilson, in the state
precincts his lead is in the propor
tion of eight to five, bringing the gen
eral proportion to about two to one.
Sherman's Lead Small
Shci man's lead over Cullom on the
adv'sory vote for senator is small,
and complete returns may over
tfciow It.
I1 neen's chief fight was against
Ler. Small, referred to In the cam
pa'ei as "Lorimer's candidate." Ad
vices six hours after the poll closed
Indicated Deneen had won by about
five to three. Wayman led Small In
Cook county, where Dcneen's esti
mated majority is 2S.000.
The democratic contest for gover
nor offered more opportunity for con
jecture. At midnight Dunne had an
Indicated majority of 61,000 In Cook
county, but Alschuler, his nearest
competitor, appeared to be running
'so well In the state that conserva
tive estimates of Dunne's majortly
are from ten to twenty thousand In
the state. Congressional returns are
delayed, and authoritative estimates
were impossible.
MONTP'ELIER, Yt.. April 9. Halt
of the Vermont delegates to the Chi
cago convention were chosen today.
Taft and Roosevelt supporters split
In an even struggle to control. Tho
delegation will be completed by the
state convention with four delegates
at large. The Taft delegates elected
in the first district had a majority of
seventy-eight while the Roosevelt men
won the second district by a majori
ty of 30. Taft leaders asserted
tonight that their majority of the
total vote will hold good tomorrow
and give them the state delegation.
This Is not conceded by the Roose
velt following.
CHICAGO, April 9. Incomplete re
turns from the Illinois -primary elec
tion indicate that Theodore Roose
velt led Taft about two and a half
to one, and that Champ Clark's vote
Is approximately twice that of Gov

Col. Caunccy Dewey, head of tba
