ROBERTS Montgomery, January 22.—(Special.)—The legislature today by an overwhelming vote in each house, rejected amendments by Governor Henderson to the Merritt-Denson state-wide pro hibition bill. . That measure late in the afternoon was signed by Lieutenant Governor Thomas E. Kilby and Speaker A. H. Carmichael and returned to the office of the chief executive. It is taken for granted that the governor will permit the bill to become a law without his signature. The vote in the house was 70 to 33 against the adoption of the amendments: in the senate 24 to 10. The amendments proposed by the governor, contained in the conclusion Bf a brief message, follow: "Therefore I submit to you, as per mitted by the constitution, the follow ing amendments, to-wit: "Amend section 18 so that that sec tion shall read as follows: "Section 18. That this act shall go into effect at 11 o'clock p. m. on the JOth day of September, 1915.’ "And by adding to the caption of the bill the following: " ‘And to provide for a submission of this bill to the qualified voters of the state of Alabama before it' shall become effective.’ "And by adding to said bill, section U. which shall read as follows: ’’ ‘Section 19. Tho provisions of tills bill shall not become effective until the bill shall have been appruved by the qualified electors of the state of Alabama voting at an election to be held at such time and under such reg ulations as the legislature may pre scribe. ” 'rhe veto In the house was as follows: For the amendments—Blunt, Brown of Jackson. Carlisle, Chamberlain, Dennis, Espy, Fuller, Goode, Gordon, Grayson of Madison. Grayson of Mobile, Hoganr Hub bard, Hudson, Johnston. Justice, Kelly. Lapsley, McDonald, Rogers of Sumter, Ryan, Sanders, Shapiro, Siglin, Speir, Stough, Thompson of Butler, Tunstull, [Vaughan, Ward, Wilson, Wittmeier—33.

Against Amendment—Bell, Bonner, Brown, Bulger, Burns, Cooper, Den son, Easterly, Ellis, Elrod, Faulk, Greene, Hall, Holmes, Jones, Key, Lee, Lusk, Miller, Milner, McCain, Price, Pride, Wallace—24. Xu the house the debate was cn the adoption of the amendments of the governor. In the senate the debate ■waa on the bill itself. Senator Lusk having raised the point that the ques tion traa not on the adoption of the proposed amendments but on the pass age of the bill despite the amend ments. Aftsr certain brief debate the ques tion was referred to the lieutenant governor, who presided, and he ruled that the contention of Senator Lusk ■was proper. Senator Judge of Jeffer son appealed from the decision cf the chair. The members voting on party lines sustained by an overwhelming vote the ruling of the chair. Senator Judge and Senator Lewis argua to night that the chair was In error and that the deolaion will furnish case for an appeal in the future to the supreme ceurt. Other senators, however, differ, i With the exception of the above in cident, there was no feature to the debate In either house and harmony prevailed. No caustic comment was In dulged in. The galleries In both houses were well filled but the spec tators were apparently more curious or hopeful of exciting event than in terested. In the house Mr. Brown of Jackson caused amusement when in jocularity he attempted to speak de spite ruling to the effect that he had overspoken his limit and laughter was provoked when Mr. Sanders of Piko was prevented from making an argu ment during roll call under the pre tense of explaining by unanimous con sent his vote. In the senate Mr. Rusk, Mr. Judge | and Mr. Hill delivered attractive speeches. The only address in the house which was In any respect ornate was that of Mr. Rogers of Sumter county. As a rulq, members of both houses discussed the effect of alcohol rather than the subject under debate. The Debate Begins Mr. Rogers of Sumter moved that the amendments proposed by the governor be adopted. He immediately yielded In order that debate might follow. Mr. I^apsley of Dallas moved that the several amendments of the governor be considered separately. Speaker Carmich ael ruled that the motion was not In or der inasmuch as the constitution provided that all amendments must be voted on at the same time. Mr. Johnston of Madison opened the de bate. lie contended that the members of the legislature had had no direct authority from the people to put into effect state wide prohibition, and argued that the members for that reason, if for no other, subifilt' the question 10 the vote of the people. He followed this contention by expressing a fear that party loyalty was falling into abeyance. The “Wet Nurses” “Were we in the maporlty,” he contin ued, “we could authorize the existence of licensed saloons in every county of the state. But had we this authority, not a single one of us would bo willing to en act it. We would simply refer the entire matter to the vote of the people of each county of the state. The present majority should do as much. But for the Interference of political wot nurses and political luminaries, I believe that that course would be followed uy the majority. At any rate, if you override the will of the people in this regard, I venture the assertion that you will not be able to evade the thought that you have trifled with your consciences.” Mr. Johnston in conclusion presented the petition of the people. He stated that names to the number of 40,000 were at tached, and that they represented the citi zens of only 38 counties, and had been secured as the result of only three days' work. Take Your Medicine 4 Mr. Walden of Morgan followed Mr. Johnston. He argued against what had been stated that in races for the legisla ture, prohibition had not been an issue. “I do not believe,” he continued, “that any man, it matters not wnere he lives, could have been elected without commit ting himself to one side or the other.” t He then read one of the pamphlets which he issued during his campaign, a pamphlet on which he had written his allegiance to state-wide prohibition He referred to the legislature of 1911, of which body he was a member, and to the “steam roller” which then was put into operation by the local optionists. He concluded by advis ing the local optionists to take their med icine with as much fortitude as possible. Some Humor Injected Air. Harvey of Alarshall followed. He opened by stating that “this is one of the happiest moments of my life.” He in stantly became dramatic, and made use of such terms as “the horny-handed sons of toil,” in the “interest of helpless wom en and children unarmed by the ballot,” and others to the same effect. He was followed by Mr. Judge of Shelby, who de nied, as far as he himself was concerned, the meaning of a cartoon printed in The Age-Herald of this morning which indi cated that the Rev. Brooks Rawrence was boss of the majority of the members of the legislature. He denied a soft im peachment to the effect that he had an ac quaintance with the gentleman from Ohio. “If Jefferson, Afoblle and Montgomery counties.” he continued, “would put about tbemselves a wire fence and thus guar (Continued on Puge Tot) TO SHOW PEOPLE MERITS OF SHIP PURCHASE BILL Administration Undismayed by Strong Minority Opposition Re doubles Efforts to Force Measure Through—Wilson and Redfield to Speak on Measure Washington.. January 22.—The ad ministration has made extensive-plana to lay before .the people its reasons for insisting on passage of the gov ernment ship bill during the present Congress. After a long discussion to night, it became known that President Wilson and his immediate supporters, undismayed by determined republican opposition, will redouble their efforts to ^ secure the bill's "enactment/ Secretary ftedfiehl is to speaU in the south and will devote himself principally fo the shipping bill, and tyej^gent Wilson himself, in an address before two large national conventions VUftU tfce Ae»t two we«k« plana to discuss the measure at length. Other steps not yet decided on, probably will be taken to inform the country con cerning the bill. The argument of republican sena tors that complications with Kuropean nations might result from purchase of ships now owned and registered in bel ligerent countries was met tonight with plain intimations from cabinet mem bers that the administration can be de pended on not to buy any ships that will cause trouble. Administration leaders continued to express confidence that there would be no necessity for an extra session of Congress. Secretary Daniels said he was proceeding with plans for the President's trip through the" Panama canal Immediately after ths olosing at tbs ®rsa*nt, lion. --:—— o/ Unconfirmed r/ com England last night stated that German airmen again have paid a visit to English towns. T ppelins are reported to have passed over Cromer, flying inland. No bomb dropping was reported. In jve map is shown Cromer, Kipg's Lynn and Yarmouth, three of the cities where bombs were droppea Zeppelins during the German aerial attack early this week. According to London dispatches the invaders are following pretty much the same course that they did during the former attack. ARGUMENTS ON Strongly Indicates That He Will Veto Measure Be cause of Literacy Test Washington, January 22.—For more than three "hours today President Wilson lis tened to appeals that he sign the immi gration bill and pleas that he veto it, voiced by spokesmen of 500, men and women, who packed the east room of the White House. The speakers were labor leaders, pub licists, social workers, students and others most of them contending for or against the literacy test. Those opposed to the| bill declared the literacy test and others of its restrictive features arc not true tests of the fitness of an immigrant; those advocating the bill argued such restrictions were needed to preserve the standards of life of American working men. At the conclusion of the arguments President Wilson said he would act on| the bill soon. Unless he signs or vetoes it by midnight Thursday it will become a law’ without his signature. The Presi dent has Indicated strongly, however, that he will veto the measure because of the literacy test. There Is a good deal of discussion on in congressional circles over the possibilities of repassing the bill over the President’s veto. When President Taft vetoed an immigration bill because of the literacy test the Senate promptly repassed It over his veto, but a few votes of the neces sary two-thirds was lacking in the House. Some champions of the bill believe both houses could now repass it. Its oppo nents are Bure It Is Impossible. The President sharply called to order one speaker during today’s hearing who discussed the motives of the opposing side, but freely allowed applause which followed the close of most of the ad dresses. RED CROSS SURGEON MARRIES PRINCESS Romance Develops in War Zone as Two Meet in Aiding Wounded Soldiers Pctrograd, January 22.—(Via I»ndon, 12:55 a. m.)—Dr. Philip Newton, an Amerian Ked Cross surgeon In charge of the Kiev hospital, was married today to the Princess Helene Schahofskaya In Petrograd.

Advocates of immediate strengthen ing of the military establishment fought to the last for additional ap propriations, but their efforts met with no encouragement from either demo cratic or republican leaders. The last roll call, on a motion by Representa tive Gardner of Massachusetts to re commit the bill with instructionc to report lmdk an utnominuni carrying $1,000,000 for aviation, was defeated. 253 to 34. An amendment offered by Represen tative Deitriek of Massachusetts and adopted practically without opposition would prohiibt use of stop watches and other “speeding-up” devices in i onnec tihn with so-called scientific manage ment systems in arsenals and shops. Representatives of union labor have been lighting for this prohibition for several years. Report Amendment The House also adopted an amend ment by Representative Tavernier of Illinois to require that all munitions of war provided for In the bid shall bo manufactured in government plants. The bill, which carries funds for maintenance of all branches of the army during the coming fiscal year, includes $300,000 for purchase of 25 aeroplanes and $50,000 for an armored motor car. These items and efforts to add to them furnished texts for long discussions on uses of the aeroplane and armored motor ear In the Euro pean war. Tho appropriation for field artillery material was Increased from $25,000 to $170,000. Provision is made for commissioning captains of the Porto Rican regiment of infantry as captains in the United States army. Of $2,000,000 allotted for barracks and quarters, an amendment stipulated that $5000 shall be expend ed to complete the chapel at Fort Houston, Tex. Representative Guernsey of Maine urged a stronger coast defense, declar ing that if Great Britain should go to war with the United States over ques tions arising from tho European war "her plan would be to seize tho city of Portland, set Maine off into Can ada overnight and make property and life there worth no more than in Bel gium todaiy."

Application to increase passenger rates on all its branch lines from 2‘£ to 3 cents per mile lias been made by the Louisville and Nashville Railroad company to the Hlate railroad commission. The hearing of the petition has been set for Feb ruary 0. Nothing in the railroad s petition to advance the passenger rate indicated why such application was made. The rate of 3 cents per mile, ordered to bo put into effect by the commission, has been in operation more than a year. It is generally understood, however, that the railroad is seeking to advance the passenger wte--:m Hs bmnoh line* owing to the general business depression throughout the south. As a result of this depression the Louisville and Nashville and other railroads several months ago asked for a temporary increase in freight rates. Tills petition was granted. Later several of the roads xisked per mission to reduce their train service by suspending a number of passenger sched ules. This petition was also granted. The petition to udvance passenger rates on certain roads is the latest application for relief on the part of the carriers. Whether or not other railroads of the state will llle like petitions with the rail road commission Is not known, though it is not unlikely that other carriers will unite with the Louisville and Nashville in the petition. The hearing of the petition Is set for the second Monday in February, and will probably be the first important case to come before the new commission.

Siege warfare continues, ami accord ing to the opinion of the military ex perts, it will go on until the ground hardens sufficiently to enable one of the commanders to movo a largo body of men with a speed that will permit him to surprise his opponent and enable him to find a weak spot in the line. In the east, along the old front from the lower Vistula to Valloia and in the Carpathians, the two armies remain in about the sume positions as two months ago, all efforts by the Germans to break down the Russian resistance seemingly having failed and the Russian attempt to drive the Austro-Germnn forces back to Cracow having met a similar tale. In the north,'however, the pew ltus sian offensive apaprently has tarried them well toward the German frontier, without meeting serious resistance. Advance Checked The Russian advance Into Transylva nia is reported cheeked by a largo Aus trian force In the mountains, while snow prevents the Muscovites going farther through the Carpathians, al though they hold all flic passes in read iness for the day when the wreather will permit resumption of the forward move ment. No mention has been made during the last few days of the fate of the rem nants of the Turkish armies which Rus sian reports previously said had been defeated in the Caucasus, but military men here believe the Russians having use for their men have decided not to push on to Krzerum. The Russian fleet, according to re ports, still is busy in the Black s-i sinking Turkish sailing ships. This-is taken as evidence that reports that tin: Turkish cruiser Gocben had been put out of action vvero nut exaggerated. Russian Report Petrograd, January 22.—The follow ing communication was given out at army headquarters here today: “On the right hank of the lower Vis tula, from the river up to Khorjelee a id further east, our ttoops continue t» be in close touch with the enemy.
