was believed to be favorable In other

The Norris resolution calling on the
Attorney General for an opinion whether
the New York Central system Is a com
bination in violation of law was dis
cussed at length In the Senate this aft
ernoon. It finally went over until Mon
day without action, and will come up
again then.
Senator Overman moved to refer the
resolution to the Interstate Commerce
Committee as soon as It came up. Sena
tor Norris objected, and said it ought to
be adopted, as it simply called for in
formation. Senator Kern opposed that
part of the resolution calling for a state
ment from the Attorney General
whether he contemplated prosecution.
Senator Weeks thought it unwise to
include in the resolution reference to
the West Shore lease, which was made
in 1SS6, before the interstate commerce
or anti-trust laws against railroad com
binations. Senator Reed made much of the fact
that notice of the existence of the al
leged combination already had been giv
en the Attorney General.
"The purpose of this resolution," said
he, "is nil, unless its purpose is to
Intimate the Attorney General is not
an honest man."
Senator Reed wanted to know if the
Attorney General had not been embar
rassed by the fact that certain wit
nesses had been given, or might be
given, immunity in the New Haven
To this Senator Norris replied -with
emphasis that the Attorney General
"did not have in contemplation any
criminal prosecutions in the New HaVen
"Not only that, "said he, "but I have
a statement from the Attorney General
that there was no criminal prosecution
contemplated., and no violation of a
criminal 'statute of the United States."
Senator Norris resented what he re
garded as an effort of Senator Reed to
Indicate there was partisanship in his
purpose, and he said neither discourtesy
to the Attorney General nor reflection
on him was intended.
Mme. Mountford Tells
Of Biblical Exhibits
A lecture on the Biblical exhibits in
the museum of the new Amurican Uni
versity was delivered by Mme. Lydla. M.
von Finkelstein Mountford, when the
doors of the museum were thrown open
to the public for the first time yester
day. Exhibits in the museum illustrate cus

taken from scenes in Palestine and
have been commented on by the fore

A national foreign trade council, to
co-ordinate the work and carry for
ward a far-reaching and vigorous cam
paign for Increased oversea commerce
is soon to be created by the National
Foreign Trade Convention.
One of the features of this cam
paign will be a movement for the re
moval and withholding of restrictions
against combinations in the foreign
trade, as distinguished from domestic
commerce. Popular approval of such a
course is to be frankly sought.
This was the action taken at the
concluding session of the National For
eign Trade Convention at the Raleigh
yesterday in resolutions, other sections
of which pledged the convention's sup
port to measures necessary to Increase
the efficiency of the consular and dip
lomatic services; indorsed increased ap
propriations for the trade promotion
functions of the Department of Com
merce, and the establishment of com
mercial attaches; favored the upbuild
ing of an American merchant marine,
and approved the manufacturing cen
sus ordered to be taken this year, and
urged manufacturers to co-operate.

tion, was urged to negotiate reciprocity

Strong Pleas For Trade.
Aside from the resolutions, the ses
sions were notable for the vigor of the
discussion of perils and opportunities
confronting American foreign trade.
Nearly every speaker laid stress on the
value of Increased foreign trade to na
tional prosperity. The papers and dis
cussions brought out strong pleas for
the establishment of American banks
abroad, American Investment In foreign
lands as a "puller" for American trade,
and the Imperative needs of American
ships to carry American goods.
Approbation of the tariff and cur
rency laws was expressed, but some
speakers discouraged the extension of
the anti-trust laws to foreign commerce
on the ground that it would hamper
American Industry abroad.

So-Called Exemption Clause o',
Trust Bill Due to Be Voted
Upon Late.
The provisions of the anti-trust bill
relating to labor will be reached by the
House late today, and a lively fight is
expected over the so-called "exemption"
of the labor unions. Opinion Is still
divided regarding the meaning of the
,language of the bill affecting labor
unions, certain members contending
that It would place the unions above
the law, others Insisting that It gives
labor no rleht a., except to organize and
exist, ami that It does not sanction.

Comparatively slow progress was
made on the bill yesterday and Sam

fight over the labor sections went away

hand when the provisions ure reached
later today.
