GREETS TEXAN'S REMARKS Unprecedented Scene in Senate During Consideration of Charges Against Illinois Member, ,Dj Morning Journal Bpmlal Leaded Wire Washington. Feb. 21. A long sibi lant hiss floated over the chnmbiT of the Unlte.l States senate today, rising above the expiring applause with which the galleries had greeted a comment reflecllnj upon the intelli of the occupants. So far as many who have long been connected with It could recall never before hail a his been heard In that dignified body. The incident followed the remark i,v Mr. Bailey of Texas. Senator Crawforo or. soum uunuia, imu mau a. statement bearing upon the Lorl mer case that brought forth expres sions of approval from onlooktng op ponents of the Illinois senator, wno sat in the gallery. "No applause will be permitted from those In the galleries," said the vice-president severely. The applause," said the Texas senator, who was In controversy with Mr. Crawford, "is a fair measure of the Intelligence of the audience." ' From that portion of the nudiencc which had not previously Joined In the applause came a slight outburst, despite tho presiding officer's caution, but os It trailed out came the hiss. Xo motive of It was known by the senators or officers of that body. The drvy In the senate largely was devoted to the Lorlmer case. Sena tor Beverldge spoke for more than four hours. He did not conclude, and suspended with the understanding that he would continue tomorrow, ufter Mr.' Lorimer's speech in his own behalf. . Senator Burrows, In charge of thi question, in behult of the committee on privileges and elections, had previ ously given notice that after Mr. Lorimer's speech he would a that a vote be taken. .... "'. , There was general acquiescence In this plan untl1 11 was fou,lJ Ulat Mt Beverldge could not well conclude to night. The new arrangement will givo the Indinnu senator the close of the discussion, unless some one as sumes the responsibility for prolong ing It to make reply to him. Toward the close of the Beverldge speech Mr. Galllnger interrogated ,Mr. Heverldgo as to the source of the monoy which the latter had freely charged had been used in the Lorl mer eloctlon. Mr. Beverldge replied it had been received from Brown. Broderlck and Wilson. "But where did Brown, Brodorlck and Wilson get It?'' persisted Mr. Gal llnger. Mr. Beverldge confessed he did not know, and to assist him some .what the New Hampshire senator suggested that as the men who had confessed to receiving the money were "a band of liars" no one could tell whether there whs any founda tion for their churges In this in stance. In this connection, Mr. Bailey un dertook to nhow that nothing hud devoloped to connect Mr. Lorlmer with the use of money in the election. Ho mentioned It was a curious fact that this was the first case of the kind in the senate In which there hart been no effort to show the source from which the money allegid to have been used had been derived, Mr. Crawford said:' "it makes no difference where the money come from ir it was used for corrupt purposes and an election re sulted from Us use." A burst of applause resounded from the galleries. The chair admonished tho visitors that demonstrations of the kind are not permitted by the senate. "Oh," exclaimed Mr. Bailey, "who erupted the manifestation as against bis position, "It is a fair measure of the intelligence of the audience.' Then the hiss was heard. Saying there was not a scintilla of evidence connecting Mr. Lorlmer with the charge of bribery, Mr. Bailey "Kked Mr. Beverldge If he believed Hrown, Broderlck and Wilson had supplied the money, and the Indiana' senator replied In the negative, ex I'leHsiiijr the opinion It had been fur nished to them. The Texas senator then saULif there hud actually' been money In the pos sesion of Holntlaw. Beckemoyer, Link J'td White,, its source easily could have been traced. No effort had been ""ado, ,e gaa to gi,ovv tnitt 6 cents had been drawn from Lorimer's bank, "id ho argued that It money had been wd for Mr. Lorlmer the bankbooks would huva hown this account. "That position Is against every rule f common sense," declared Mr. Craw, jord, Interrupting tho Texan. The burden of proof Is not on those mak mg the charge; the presumption Is ""it those who profited by the trans action furnished the money." Mr. Railey was Juet as compliment R'T. hls r",ionc. "When the senator suggests a re ort to the rules of common sense hp should not violate such rules hlm elf." he said. The trouble, he argued, was that it assumed that money had been m V1 ,he wl,neseg had charged. nich he did not believe to have been 'he ease. "Then," salil Mr. T.everldge. "It was dream." CAUSE "No, not a dream; It w'as all a lie," responded Mr. Bailey. "Does not the senator believe that Holstlaw deposited the 12,500, as ap pears In evidence?" Mr. Bailey was asked, and he promptly replied that he did not. "What motive could have, prompted the testimony?" the Indianan de manded. , "The same motive that caused oth ers to want to destroy Mr. Lorimer's character," was Bailey'a explanation. At this point, Mr. Beverldge Intro duced an' affidavit from Jarvls New ton, chief clerk of the Chicago State bank, together with a photographic copy of the famous deposit slip. Mr. Bailey promptly seized the opportun ity to obtain consent to the publica tion of the slip in the congressional record, for the purpose of sustaining, as he said, his charge of forgery. Mr. Cummins advanced the theory that the money said to have been used in the election of Mr. Lorlmer had had origin similar to that of the famous "jackpot." An adjournment was then taken for the day.

HALED TO COUR NSURRECTOS SEIZE SE POLICE CHIEF SHOT DEAD BY INVADERS Terrified Inhabitants of Algo dones Find Refuge From Rebel Bullets on United States Soil; American Leads Party, By Morning Journal Special iMttri Wire) Andrado, Cal., Feb. 21. Twenty-six Insurrccto from Mexlcall began shooting vp Algodones, a small town In Mexico, opposite this place, to night. The chief of police was killed and a Mexican custom officer seri ously wounded. Bullets from the ritles of rebels flying across tlu In ternatlonal line into Andrade cuused a panic among the inhabitants. Algodones is twenty miles from Yuma. The rebels, who are said to be under the command of Captain William Stanley, captured a train on tha Inter-California railroad at Pack ard and came to Algodones. They began shooting as soon they dropped from the train. Chief of Police Garzo fell dead at the first volley. The rebels then Btormed the custom house, Inspector Belendez being In charge. Several bullets pierced his body, but it Is not known whether his wounds will prove fatal. The capture of the custom house, the killing of Carzo and the flight of the entire police force did not result in a cessation of firing. The excited Insurrectos kept volleying and a hull of bullets flew over the town. The people of Algondones hastened over the line for protection on American soil. The insurrectoa tore down all telegraph lines westward, cutting off all communication between Algodones and other stations on the InterCalt- fornla railway. The insurrectos ceased firing and left at 8 o'clock. Andrade is in charge of a detuchment of the First United SUtes cavalry. LIMANTOUH INTERVIEW SHOCKS 1IA7. CABINET, Mexico City, Feb. 21. Up to a late hour tonight, so far as could be learned, no. word had been received .from Minister of Finance .Jose Uman- tour by President Diai! or any mem ber of his cabinet relative to tho inter view forwarded from Paris yesterduy by tho Associated Press. It was said officially last night that a message had been sent direct to Mr. Llmantour, asking if he had been correctly quoted. Pending the re ceipt of an affirmation or a denial, no cabinet member would discuss the matter. When asked tonight for n further expression on the subject. Minister Creel said: "I am still disposed to believe that Minister Llmantour has been mis quoted, but pending the verification Of the statements attributed to him, I have nothing further to say: Mr. Maco, acting minister of finance, also declined to comment on the matter, as did other members of the cabinet, who were asked for an expression of opinion. As the state ment attributed to Minister Llman tour has the semblance Of ft radical political program, as observed by Mr. Creol last night, and in the absence of any denial from him, a profound sensation has resulted here. Jn some quarters it was taken as an Indication that a rupture hud oc curred between the administration and Minister Llmantour. This how ever, was officially denied.

Mexico City, Feb. 21. A regiment of federal cavalry turned the tables upon a body of Insurrectos last Hun day, according to advices from Tor reon, ambushing thim near Pedrleena, Durungo, and Inflicting lonx.'n said to number more than seventy dead. The rebels, who had been terroris ing the Pedrleena district for two weeks, wen proceeding toward Map Iml, fifty miles to the north. At the same time the Seventh federal cav alry arrived at Naziis, twenty miles west of Pedrleena, and at one? start ed to Intercept the revolutionists. The enemy were caught between a federal cross fire, b?came panic-stricken, and were badly beaten.

CUSTOM HDU NEARYUMA LOIR CALIFORNIA REVOLUTIONISTS T Leaders Declare Their Move ment is Independent of All Other Uprisings in Mexico and is Backed by Americans, MAN WHO WORKS WITH HIS HANDS TO BE SUPREME Modern Utopia Where There to Be No Poverty or Wealth is Dream of Men Now Fighting Diaz Government, By Morning Journal Special Lrm4 Wlral Mexlcall, Mex., Feb. 21. Indepen dent of all other revolutionary move ments of leaders In Mexico, the insur rection here la now centered In a so cialistic affair, the object being the establishment of a I'toplu In Lower California, which though bom amid the singing of bullets, ultimately la to know no bloodshed or warfare, or men of money. This wag the assertion made for the first time today by both leaders of the Insurrectos and the "Industri al Workers of the World." Herthold said that the aid of both organiza tion had been sought by him last week, when he secretly crossed the line and went to Los Angeles. Lyva, the self-styled leader of the "army of liberation,'' puved the way for a manifesto of the real object and purpose of the movement when he stated that he recognized no superior among the other tevolutlonuiy lead ers operating In Mexico. Later. Berthold, In an M interview with- Captain Conrd Babeoekl com manding th tfnifeu, States cavalry, and Mayor Rockwood, ot Calexico, as serted frankly that the purpose of the revolutionary movement wa to establish a socialistic commonwealth in I-owcr California, and where the man who works with his hands will be supreme. Identical sentiments were echoed by the men of the army, a large majority of whom are Ameri cans, .who claim affiliation with the International Workers of the World and socialistic organizations. Simultaneously clamps were put up on news sources. Leyva denied that he had sent to day a telegram to President Tuft pro testing agnlnBt permission being given Mexican federals to travel over Am erican territory, although It was posi tively known that he had done so. Leyva declared he was silent on ad vice of American friends. One of these friends seen often In the "bull pen camp of the Insurrectos, was John Kenneth Turner, the mngaxlna writer. Turner spent four days almost constantly in the company of rebel lenders, but left last night for Loa Angeles. Berthold's assertion wan accompan ied by a dictum to Cnptnin Babcook and Mayor Roekwood that the Amerl- cans must rare for the wounded In future battles whether they wanted to or not. "The Red Cross has donated II. 00ft to the cause," he said. "We will take the wounded to the International line and you must treat them or let them die. We have no hospital facilities or means of procuring them." The scouting party sent out today reported the capturing of a train on the Inter-Callfornla railway below Packard station, five miles southeast. This Is the train which the rebels be lieved carried a small federal foree. No trace of any government troops was found and relieved of any anxiety In that direction, it Is expected the In surrectos will start their campaign against Knsennda tomorrow. Two more federal dead were found today on the line of Vega's retreat about a mile and a half southwest of Wednesday's battlefield. The bodies were covered with mud and lay along an Irrigation canal where they fell and were abandoned by their fleeing comrades. Miguel y Lira. Judge of the first In stance In Lower California, who fled to Mexlcall upon the approach of the Insurgents, said tonight he had receiv ed official notice that Governor Vegi was not wounded In the battle last Wednesday. He also received official notice that the Mexican government had ordered troops to come and anni hilate the rebel army at Mexlcall. "Vega was not wounded, nor was he defeated," said Judge Lira. He merely came to Mexlcall to procure In formation regarding the position ot the outlaws there and he withdrew at my request which wes made at the In stance of the American authorities who feared damage from flying bul lets. I am officially Informed that the so-called rebels will be caught between two fires one u body of troops which came by way of Yuma, and thp other from a second force now on Its way from Santa Isabel, south of Knsenadrt. The movement has already started. Both bodies of troops are In motion. When they ar rive .no quarter wilt, be given then! outlaws. They will be treated ns out laws." PLAN II IS REPUBLIC NEW TREATY WITH T TO SENATE CONTAINS NO PROVISION FOR COOLIE EXCLUSION Taft Willing to Trust Tokio Government With Task of Keeping at Home Her Un desirable Citizens, (By Morning Journal Special Lmu4 Win Washington, Feb. 21. The text of a new treaty with Japan, designed to replace that of 1894 and drawn with the special' design of eliminating the restrictions upon Immigration con tracted in that treaty, waa laid before the senate today by President Taft The essential difference between the proposed treaty and the existing con vention Is said to be that It omits all reference to all such restrictions and leaves to the national honor of Japan the enforcement at her own ports th limitations upon emigration from Japan now expressly placed upon im migration into the United States. The document Is said to provide that either country may denounce the treaty at the end of six months if It falls to operate as expected. Because It embodies this radical de. parture from the existing tretty and touches the question of the deepest Importance and Interest t,o the Pacific slope, the Injection of this convention Into the closing hours of the sixty first congress created a sensation to day. Thnt the new trenty will encounter opposition seeing certain, for even if It ahould be speedily reported to the senate from the committee without serious controversy within the com mittee room, the western senators art expected to insist upon opportunity for debate which will develop the full extent of their opposition to th treaty. Unlike matters of ordinary legisla tion, failure of the senate to aot upon the treaty during the remainder of thla session of congress would hot of Itself extinguish Its validity, which could be kept Indefinitely aliv In the executive files of the senate, to be tuken up at any convenient JIme. This new treaty is one of "trade and commerce," Intended to replace the treaty of 1894, negotiated by the laie Secretary Gresham and Baron Kiirlno, then Japanese minister to the United States. That treaty Is a most comprehensive document comprising twenty articles, dealing with trade, commerce and navigation, rights of dwelling, Import and export duties. tonnage dues, port regulations, de sertions, shlplng rights, consular func. tlnna and other subjects. It has already become antiquated mainly because of the rapid advance of Japan In wayg of civilization. It was drawn simultaneously with sev eral other Japanese treaties of simi lar acope negotiated with all the great powers. But unlike the others this particular treaty was not promptly ratified and did not go Into effect un til about a year after the others were In force. Japan has already negotiated treat ies to replace those of the nineties with nearly air of the other powers except the United States. If our government were to Insist upon Its rights, the existing treaty could be continued In force until July 17. 1912. This little Incident the difference of a year In the expiration of the old treaties lg proving very embarrass ing to the Japanese In developing a fiscal policy. As all of the new treat ies contained the favored nation clause, the Japanese government would be obliged to concede to the nations other thnn the United States all of the privileges which America enjoys under the treaty of 1894. The practical result may be to de lay for a full year If America refused to enter upon a new treaty relation at onco, the readjustment of tariff rates and other forms of taxation vital to the sound financing of the Japanese empire. Hence the Japanese govern ment has been UBlng every effort to Induce the state department to follow the example of the great Kuropean na tions and consent to Immediate revis ion of the treaty. The department hns delayed doing so, primarily for the reason that It desired to await the conclusion of all the treaties which Japanese Is mak ing with the other powers In Order to make certain of securing for Ameri ca any advantages extended to other peoples. The radical difference between this new' treaty and the one now In force and the one which may prove obnox ious to the western senators Is under stood to be the omission of any ref erence to the Immigration question. ' Tho two governments have enjoyed the undeniable right to legislate re garding Immigration, either by re striction or by total exclusion of cool He labor. Unquestionably the United States government could do this with out any trenty stipulation on the sub ject Just as It did in the case of China when It enacted the Chinese exclusion laws. It Is understood there Is no disposi tion on the part of the Japanese to deny the extension of such powers. What they do object to Is the Inclu sion In a formal trenty, to which they are a party of a stipulation Hssertlng thnt right, which Is not embodied In any treaty America has made with Kuropean powers, and which serves only ns an Irritant to Japanese pride. In other words thp consummation E of the new treaty would be a tribute to the advanced position which Japun has taken among the nations without in any degree curtailing the power of the United States government to regu lat? Immlgratnon by legislation. The president's action In submitting thlB treaty created great surprise In congress, the only persons not taken unawares being the members of the sennte committee on foreign delations, who at a dinner recently given to them at the White House were In formed by President Taft what the administration had In mind. These senators consequently were in a position to renllxe the full Im portance of the formidable looking document which wag laid before the senate In the executive session Just at the close of the day. There was no opportunity to read it before it had been referred to the foreign relations committee. It Is said that the White House din ner developed some views on the part of individual aenators of great Inter est as bearing upon the probable fate of the treaty when It comes before the senate for approval. There is a disposition on the part of some to apprehend a demand on the part of China for a relaxation of the rigid exclusion laws If this concession should be made to Japan. But It was pointed out that the government would not surrender any right of control of Chinese Immigration even If a new treaty were accorded to China. Another argument for the treaty wag a production of figures to show that last year Japan has voluntarily prevented the departure of coolies, so that the Immigration of thnt class has been practically stopped. This was cited as demonstrating, that reliance might safely he placed upon the Jap anese sense of honor. MAYOll MTAUT1IY WAXTS (-OOLIK I.AHOlt K KPT OUT. San Francisco, Feb. 21.

HOLIDA FOR ROOSEVELT HALE LEADS FIT RECIPRDC TY in coi n INTERESTS AFFECTED NOT CONSULTED, HE SAYS Declared Ratification of Agree ment With Canada Spells Ruin for Great Fishing Indus try on New England Coast, (By Morning Journal gperlnl Imh4 Wire) Washington, Feb. 21. By adroit questioning Senator Halo of Maine, who took a leading role today In op posing the Cunadlnn reciprocity agree ment In the hearings given by the senate committee on finance, put Into the record statements by witnesses that President Taft, Secretary of Stata Knox and the American commission ers had failed to consult any of the Interests affected by agreement nego tiated. The strongest statement In this regard was made by Representa tive (lardner of Massachusetts, who appeared In the interest of th Gloucester fisheries. After predicting that the effect of the Canadian agreement would be to ruin the fishing Interests of this coun try, which are centered at Gloucester, which prediction waa based upon the effect of Canucilan bounties pnld to her fishermen and the subsidized warehouses of Canada, Mr. (lardner was catechized by Senator Hale. The Maine senator developed Mr. Gard ner's Interest In the subject and the fact he had always championed the Olou. ester Industry. Mr. Gardner said neither he nor any of the other representatives and senators rrom his state had been con sulted regarding the effect of the pro posed agreement. He told of having visited the president and receiving the Impression that Mr. Taft consid ered the question as closed, Mr. Gardner then proceeded to give his view of the ease. ... , , He snid lust summer the president faced the obligation of assessing a punitive duty against imports from, Canada because of the discovery that Canada hud given preferential treat ment to France. Under the maximum' and minimum ProvlHlon of the tariff law, said Mr. Gardner, the president "would .be' compelled to apply the maximum rates to Canada, but he knew that the people of this country would not stand far it ; ' i--' "As a result, the president ienl commissioners to Canada, who de manded a reciprocal trade agreement arid the Inevitable happened. When ever tho maximum provisions of tho tariff law cannot be enforced It will become a weapon In the hands of thu government discriminating airalnti the United States." , Senator flout spoke briefly regard ing the change made in the pulp wood nnd paper provision of tho Mc Call bill to curry out the provisions of the agreement. This change was from the form In which It was orlg inally introduced. He suggested that the committee restore the original language so ns to remove every pos sible doubt that any restrictions bv any of the provinces of Canada would prevent pulp wood and paper from coming In free until such restrictions Were removed. Colonel Clark, secretary of the Home Market club of Boston, madrt a protest ngulnst the wholo agree ment, on the ground that It was utt riilr to papernuiklng, fluhlug and Kg.

Tho reel pruclty debate was continued In th house today by G. W. Kyte, a liberal leader from Nova Scotia, who ap proved the agreement, and by Thomng Sproule, a conservative member from Ontario, who condemned it. Mr. Kyte called the attention- of those who have broadly declared that reciprocity would be Injurious to Canada generally to tho fact that slurs Hie terms were made public, there hag been a Mtibstantiul line In several Im portant industrial unci railroad stocks of the Dominion. It' rei lproelty meant eventually the annexation of Canada by the United Slates it was Incomprehensible, Mr. Kyte alTlrmed, that such American rhuuiplone of national advancement as Senator Cummins ami Congress man Heimet were opposing the agree ment.
