SEEN IN SENATE
Lodge and Beveridge
Embarrassed by Face?
tious Comment.
HALE STIRS ALL
TO LAUGHTER
Curious Situation Arises When
It Is Discovered That Charge
of Tariff Board Bill Has
Been Transferred to Sena?
tor Not Even on Com?
mittee Reporting It.
Washington. D. C, March 2.?Al-i
though the bill to create a permanent
tariff board was kept before the Senate j
from early laat evening until 1:35 j
o'clock this morning, no vote was had
jpn it nor any time fixed for voting. i
The opposition came entirely from
Democratic Senators, who protested
that they were not.conducting a filibus?
ter, but needed time for a caucus to |
define their position upon the measure.
Senator Beveridge, who had charge of J
the- bill, questioned the Democrats
closely as to their intentions, and
drew from them statements that they;
could not promise, but believed there
Svould not be any attempt to obstruct
e. vote if they were permitted to go to
Jlieir homes and get a night's reBt.
After Mr. Beveridge had stated that
the was willing to accept the state?
ments of the Democrats, he moved to
Adjourn. Mr. La I'ollette, of Wisconsin,
demanded a roll call on the motion.
Practically all of Senator Beverldge's
Progressive colleagues voted against
adjournment, but he received the sup?
port of the Democrat?, and the motion
carried, ?c, to 2t. The Senate will re
eumc consideration of the measure
*oon after it meets at 11 o'clock to-day,
end Republican leaders confidently ex?
pect that it will pass. I
Leadership Transferred.
Washington. 1). C, March 1.?When |
Senator Beveridge moved at to-night's ?
session of the Senate to proceed with!
tli*- consideration of the bill to create aj
permanent tariff hoard, tftua indicating
that control of the measure had passed
from Senator Lodge, the member of
ih<j Finance Committee who reported
it. to a-Senator who i? not on the com?
mittee, thore followed a clever bit of
hazing as ever was witnessed in the
Senate.
Beginning with some facetious com?
ments by Sen:-.tor Stone, of Missouri,
the situation became curious when
Senator Money, of Mississippi, the mi?
nority leader, demanded an cxplana- j
tion. Finally he moved to recommit
the bill to the Committee on Finance, j
in the hope, as he said, of clarifying;
the situation. This motion failed by a
Vote of 1'i to 51.
I'nvt of Agreement.
Senator Lodge, with some show of
reluctance, finally confessed that the;
surrendering of the conduct of the bill
to Senator Beveridge had been a part'
of the agreement yesterday by which !
the Senate fixed a time to vote on the j
XjOrimer rase and made tiki tariff board i
Mil tl-e unfinished business.
According to Mr. Stone, it has been !
the uniform and unbroken practice of j
the Senate that when a bill is reported ?
from a committee; some member of that
committee shall take charge of it. He'
called attention to the fact that the;
matter had been reported by Senator j
Lodge, who suddenly hud disappeared, ;
and Mr. Stone demanded to know !
whether he had disappeared willingly j
lir unwillingly. lie declared that when j
the bill was given to him to report it
was his right and duty to maintain
charge of it. Finally Mr. Stone ad?
dressed Mr. Hale, of Maine, and asked
him If ho could solve the riddle.
"I am in a condition of surprise,"
paid Mr. Hale. "I supposed that the ;
Senator from Massachusetts was in
charge of the bill, and I should like to
know by what process of legerdemain I
Jie was ousted from the control and !
management of it.
Continuing, Mr. Hnle said that he did
riot think even his "modest friend from
Indiana would n?sismc to take the lead?
ership."
Keeps Senate ( on.vulxed.
Proceeding in this vein, Mr. Hale kept
tho Senate, convulsed with laughter,
while Senators Beveridge and Lodge
vemnlned in their scats, evidently much
embarrassed.
"I would like to know," asked Mr.
Owen, "whether this interesting col?
loquy is a conspiracy."
"It is a conspiracy that results from
. two serious and honest minds running
In the same direction." responded Mr j
Halo.
"Isn't it an attempt to uncover a!
conspiracy?" asked Mr. Money.
Mr. Hale again asked by what trans?
formation Senator Lodge had been
ousted. He wanted to know if the Sen?
ator from Massachusetts had been left
dangling In the air. If he has, the
Senator said, then the Senator from In?
diana is the proper man, perhaps, to
tnke charge of this measure.
"Is this bill a foundling, which had
iio one- to care for it, and was it at last
laid at the doorstop of the Senator
from Indiana'.'" nsked Mr. Hale.
"This bill came from the House. Its
paternity is of unquestioned respect?
ability." declared Senator Owen.
Mont Disorderly.
Senator Money deciarcd the proceed?
ing was most disorderly and that there
had been some irregularity, which he
' could not understand, by which the bill I
Lad passed from the control of a mem?
ber of the Committee on Finance to
the possession of the chairman of the
Committee of Territories. Ho demanded
to know whether the transfer was by
agreement.
j "It is not a laughing matter," said
Senator Money, "Facedousness is tone
of tho viees of this age. Some people
can't talk upon a question without try'
lng to be funny." ?. .
Up to this Ihne continuous laughter
bad greeted the different, speakers, but
nt the admonition of Mr. Money \ho
risibilities of tho Senators were curb|d.

JOHN MITCHELL Q JITS
Forced Out of Civic Federation by
kiltie Worker*.
New York, March 1.?John Mitchell,
former head of the United Mine Work?
ers ot" America, and lately chairman of
the trade agreement department of (he
National Civic Federation, to-day made
public his resignation of hin office and
membership in the latter organization.
It was also announced that President
.Seth Low. of the Civic Federation, had
accepted I he resignation, to take effect
at the close of ilia present month.
Mr. Mitchell's (severance of relations
?vith ihe Civic Federation follows the
stand recently taken by the United
Mine Workers ->f America In declaring
that any member of the organization
accepting a position with the National
Civic Federation would thereby forfeit
membership In the union. With this
choice placed before Mr. Mitchell, he
decided to resign from the Civic Fed?
eration.
Iiis let'.er of resignation, made public
to-day. is dated February I and ad?
dressed to Mr. Low.
"It Is. needless to nay that I regret
the action of the miners' Convention,
not so much because It, requires me to
choose between the two organizations
as bccntiHc of the unjust and gratuitous
attnek upon the National Civic Feder?
ation, which, In addition to its many
other useful public activities, lias stood
consistently as nri advocate of right?
eous industrial peace," says Mr. Mitchell
in Iiis letter of resignation.
In accepting the resignation, Mr. Low
pays a tribute to the value of Mr.
Mitchell's work for Industrial peace.

be Otherwise than disastrous to the
cause of union labor. He added that

Typographical Union understood the
facts they woud be unanimous in con?
demnation of the Chicago demonstra?
tion against a publisher of eight union
newspapers. The International Typo?

Causes Some Alarm.
I'aria, March 1.?The new French j
Cabinet, ao far as it Is at present con- j
silt u ted. Is made up as follows:
Premier and Minister of Interior. An
tolne Ernest Monis.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, M. Crup
Pi.
Minister of War, Henry Maurice Ber

Justice and Worship. Louis Malvy.
Post and Telegraps, Charles Chau
met.
Beaux ArtB, Henry Dujardtn-Beau
rnetz.
Premier Monis spent the day In
strenuous efforts to get his ministers
together. Ills labors appeared to be
crowned with complete success, and the
list of ministers was sent to the Journal
Officiel. At the last moment, however,
came the unexpected refusal of Jules
Jeanneney and Francois Porrler to ac?
cept respectively the portfolios of jus?
tice and commerce. This necessitated
a hurried recall of the list.
Outline Program.
The Premier then proffered the pori
folols to Senators Louis Uevelle and
Jules Pams Their answer will not bo
made known until to-morrow. The
new ministers met at the residence of
Premier Monis and outlined the princi?
pal features of the program which the
government will submit to the Chamboi
of Deputies. At the end of the con?
ference M. Monis said that the ministry
could be considered as definitely con?
stituted, and that there was no prob?
ability that the list as it Is now made
up would bo modified.
The chief dlfficuly encountered by the
Premier was in finding a suitable head
for the foreign office.
The appearance of Delcasse in the
Cabinet has caused alarm in some sec?
tions. Some of the newspapers de?
clared that It would be better if be
should remain In oblivion, charging
that he menaced the peace of France
and the peace of the world by attempt?
ing the Isolation of Germany in con?
nection with the Moroccan question in
1905.

SEES P?LIC Y
OF AGGRESSION
Angfcred by Taft's Allusion to
Him in Message to Congress,
He Charges Country With
"Web of Treasons and Small
Villainies," and Warns
Latin-Americans.
New Orleans, La.. March 1-?In a
sixteen-page pamphlet, bearing the
titlo "Refutation of the Statements of
President Taft," received here to-day
from Brussels, Jose Santos Zelaya, ex?
iled former President of Nicaragua, In?
dulges In bitter denounciatlon of Presi?
dent Taft and ,hls government's policy
of aggression In La tin-America.
lie brands President Taft as a sland?
erer; accuses the United Slates govern?
ment of having "shamelessly aided the
rebellion" in Nicaragua; of having
"bought consciences" to further Its
scheme of aggrandisement, and warns
Latin-Americans that the purpo?e of
the i'aft administration is to seize the
Central American republics.
The pamphlet has been widely distri?
buted
Belaya's attack upon the Taft ad?
ministration was called forth by what
he terms "unjust accusations, full of
bitterness against me." contained in
the President's annual message to
Congress in December.
In that message President Taft re?
ferred to Zelaya as "the disturber of
Central America," said the people of
Nicaragua were finally driven Into re?
bellion by his lawless exactions, and
that Zelaya violated the laws of war?
fare by the "unwarranted execution of
two American citizens, who had re?
gularly enlisted In the ranks of the
revolutionists."
IMactumc? ?'Interf ereuce.
Zelaya discusses "Interference" in
Cuba, Santo Romlngo. Panama, etc,
and declares that the conduct of the
United States has given "a solemn de?
nial to thl? candid alluBion"?the Mon?
roe Doctrine.
In place of the Monroe Doctrine he
says, the Unitod States government
has adopted the policy of "America
for the Yankees."
Referring to the recent Nicaraguan
revolution, which finally brought about
his downfall, Zelaya says:
"The United States government
shamelessly ab".?d the rebellion: it took
the part of the rebels against my gov?
ernment; It bought conscience, promis?
ing the Intrigants to give them the
country In return for concessions ruin?
ous to the latter.
"The battle was unequal, and my
withdrawal from power, of which
President Taft gives a. false explana?
tion, only took place when I had ac?
quired the conviction that It was Im?
possible to undo the web of treasons
and small villainies which the Ujilted
States Government had plotted for the
misfortune of our unhappy country."

WILL MAKE NO APPEAL
?Western Railroads Decide to Accept
Rate Decision.
Chicago, 111., March 1.?Thlrty-fivo
Western railroads decided to-day to
make no appeal from the recent decis?
ion of the Interstate Commerce Com?
mission denying the roads the right to
increase freight rates. They will ac?
cept the decree of tho commission as
final.
The decision was reached at a meet?
ing to-day of representatives of the.
roads at the Western Trunk Line Asso?
ciation headquarters here. The opin?
ion was advanced by many that the
roads would bo unable to make any
stronger showing before the new Com?
merce Court than they had before tho
commission, and that once the new
court had ruled, its decree would bo
binding for two years.
It also was argued that if the roads
comply with tho decree without ob?
jection and withdraw the advanced
tariffs before March 10, there will be
an opportunity at a later date to sub?
mit advances on certain rates, some of
which may, moot with favor.

FOREST RESERVES ATTACKED
Heyburn Fails in His Effort to
Cut Appropriation Down to
Million Dollars.
Washington. D. C, March 1.?Senator
Heyburn, of Idaho, to-night made a
futile attempt to reduce the annual
expenditures for the maintenance of
national forest reserves from more
than $5,000,000 to $1,000,000 by the in?
troduction of an amendment to the
agricultural bill, and brought down
upon his head the wrath of friends of
the forest service, who declared ho
was trying to kill a settled policy of
the government.
The question arose in connection with
the consideration of the agricultural
appropriation bill. The amendment
was defeated. 19 to 50.
Gnc.i Tun Fur.
Several Senators said that they
thought the forest service was too
costly and that the appropriations
ought to be reduced, but that the
amendment offered by Mr. Heyburn
went too far.
During his criticism of the forest
service Mr. Heyburn said that In one
Way and i'iiother Congress was appro?
priating almost $8,000,000 annually for
the protection of tin.- forests. He
charged the foresters with using the
reserves for their own benefit, lie al?
leged that they profit by collecting
bounties for killing wild animals.
"They create the preserves, prevent
others from hunting, and kill the game
themselves and collect from the State.
They have a private snap."
Senator Clark, of Wyoming, de?
nounced the forestry system in warm
terms, and in doing so warned the
Eastern Senators that the time would
come when they would rue the day that
they had procured the establishment of
reserves in the Whlto Mountains and
the Southern Appalachians.
Mr. Overman, of North Carolina,
lr.ado some inquiries concerning the
national nurseries. Replying. Senator
Nelson undertook to tell about the for?
estry nurseries in Alaska, and elicited
a loud burst of laughter by relating
; that when he was a boy he had worked
J In a nursery, "where," he said, "wo did
j a little grafting."
j In the same connection. Mr. Heyburn
!said that the iroe seods used In the
nurseries were obtained largely through
robbing tho nests of squirrel:-. Ho said
, that he knew of forty-five bushels
' gathered from that source,
j Speaking of foresters. Mr. Heyburn
? declared that thoy were recruited from
i tho Rastern States.
Donne* n firnfter.
"They are suckers?grafters," he j
', Raid. and. dellning grafters, added. "The
grafter is not. the man who pokes his
I hand uito a till and takes out what he
j gets hold of: he Is the man who :it
I taches himself to some other man's
; property and draws It away from him."
After the defeat of the. amendment
proposing to decrease the appropriation
; fnr forest preservation, Mr. Heyburn
j offered another proposition to prohibit
; tho expenditure of any part of the for?
est service appropriation upon forests
growing less than 4,000 feet, board
measure, of merchantable lumber per
aero in contlprfi^Tvrs areas of 1 CO acres.
He said that the effect of the amend?
ment would be to eliminate more than
one-third of the forest reserves. The
committee of tho whole finally accepted
the amendment.
Tho agricultural appropriation hill
passed without a roll call.
Clientlng n Crime.
Jacksonville, Fla., March 1.?The
State convention on revision and codi?

Taft Doesn't Propose to Worry
Himself Any More About
Extra Session.
OTHERS ON GRIDIRON
Standpatters May Filibuster
Now, but They'll Have
to Vote Later.
Washington, March 1.?"Let 'em
sizzle awhile. I'm through stewing." |
President Taft was credited with this
remark to-day when some of his visi?
tors asked him about the situation in
the Senate as to reciprocity.
And the President acted the part all
day in conversation with those who
brought up the subject. He had work?
ed for days, exhausting his nervous
energies, to force a vote on the one
great question, which he is confident
the American people arc must pro?
foundly interested in.
lie feels that sentiment In every dt ?
rection has been brought to a point
to compel some other peopW; to walk
the floor, while he can sit back and
tnke it easy?just watch the writhing
of the other man. And seeing the
other fellow wriggle- is not all. Hav?
ing played his card, the President Is
philosophically/ awaiting the outcome.
To-day he turned his attention almost
exclusively to other matters pending
in Congress and chopped oft' reciprocity
conversation.
Will Not Accept ?'Pake" Note.
Again the President announced thut
nothing but a straight, square vote oft j
reciprocity will stop his calling an ex- J
tra session. Nothing of a falte nature
will suit him. He protested vigorously j
tho other day when it was suggested j
to him that there were live or si*
Democrats favorable to reciprocity who
wore so willing to avoid an extra ses?
sion they would vote against the bill !
If it was submitted to a vote, merely J
to get the thing out of the way. The
President has determined that no such
proceedings will satisfy him.
Kven to-day rumors were going tho
rounds that a "frame-up" is being
sought by which reciprocity will be'
brought to a vote at the last minuto,
and killed by certain Democratic Sen- J
alors little concerned as to Its fato I
and more eager to escape an extra ses?
sion than cureful of how they record
! themselves.
I The President, it is said, knows the
attitude of every man in tin- Sonate,
and ho would scan a vote most care- ;
fully to determine whether there had
been a "frame-up.". If he concluded
that this was so he would call an extra)
session just the same. In fact, he has
about reached a point where he is de?
termined to call an extra session re?
gardless of a vote unless It Is favor?
able, fearing that there may be
political deal in the Senate.
It looked certain to-day, from the
tone of his remarks to callers, that he
suspects the possibility of a little deal
to defeat reciprocity in the last few
minutes. In which event an extra sos
sloh i3 an absolute certainty.
Senate Outlook Holter.
In spite of the unconcern of tho
President nbout tho doings of the Sen?
ate on rocoproolty, senatorial callers
