TIIKVlJIESFOUNDEDu,^ WHOLE NUMBER 18.658. RICHMOND, VA., THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 1911. THE WEATHER TO-DAY?Fair PRICE TWO CENTS. FIGHT IN SENATE NOW ENDANGERS BILL'S PASSAGE Lines Disrupted and In? surgents Form Coali? tion With Democrats. INSIST ON FULL TARIFF REVISION Finance Committee Is Over Thrown and Woo Bill and Farmer's Free List Must Be Reported, Thus Making Suc? cess of Reciprocity Al most Impossible. Washington, D. C, June 21.?mo throwing of the Democratic wool re? vision bill Into the senate to-aay drovo the Insurgent Republicans of that body into an open coalition with the Democrats In a demand for a gen? eral revision of the tariff, and brought about the threatened crisis In the Finance Committee's control of tne Senate. At the end of a bitter light the resolution by Senator Gore, requir? ing the Finance Committee to report back the wool bill before July IV. was passed by a voto of 33 to 18. Western Republicans, who have fought the reciprocity measure, tak? ing up challenges thrown down by the Democratic leaders, followed cacti other in rapid succession In their ul? timatums to the Senate leaders. These ultimatums were Invariably that before the reciprocity bill is per? mitted to pass a Republican Senate will be forced to undertake a revision of other schedules of the rarltt, in? cluding much more than the woolen revision bill and the free list bill, which have gone through the House. Full lunurgeut Strength. Of the affirmative votes cast for the Gore motion overthrowing the Finance Committee, sixteen were Republicans. They were Senators Borah, Bourne, Brlstow, Brown, Clapp, Crutftora. Cummins. Dlxon. Gronna. Jones, Ken yon. La Follctte. Nelson, Poinuexter, Towrisend and Works. This Includeu the full Insurgent strengtn of tnir leeri and In addition senators Jones, Kelson and Towriscnd. ::cnator Myers was the only Democrat voting wltft the Republicans a?alnst the motion. A8 the result of the Senate's action. Senator Penrose, before adjournment, called a meeting of the Finance Com? mittee, of which he Is chairman, tor 10:30 o'clock to-morrow morning, and he and other Renular Republicans pre? dicted that when the Senate convenes at noon to-morrow the wool measure, together with the free list bin, win be reported adversely. Notable speeches on reciprocity were made in both branches of Congress to? day. Senator Root, announcing that he favored the agreement, advocated and explained his amendment to th< wood pulp and paper provision of the bill, around which amendment the reci? procity fight has centred and wjileh amendment President Taft opposes on the ground that It might jeopardize the whole agreement. Republican Leader Mann, In the House, attacked the Root amendment as a violation of the Canadian reciprocity agreement. To-day's fight began the instant that the wool rovlslon bill appeared from the House of Representatives. Sena? tor Gore, apparently with the approv? al of Democratic leaders, moved that the Finance Committee be instructed to report the bill hack to the Senate on or before July 10. His admitted purpose was to prevent the Finance Committee from holding the bill In? definitely or from falling to report It at all. Linen Disrupted. The result of the Gore motion was to disrupt so completely the lines that have formed In the Senate that It can? not be foretold now when a vote can be reached on the reciprocity bill, or whether enough votes can he mustered to pass It without amendment. Senators Cummins. Nelson, Crawford, La Follette, Jones and other Republi? can Insurgents from Northwestern States, who have opposed the reci? procity bill because of alleged dis? crimination against the agricultural Interests, declared that before a vote would be permitted on the reciprocity bill they would demand that the other schedules of the tariff bo taken up, and would insist upon an attempt to tack many of them upon the recipro? city measure. The Republican leaders. notably Senators Penrose. Smoot, Gallinger and .Lodge, all members of the Finance Committee, declared that such a limi? tation upon the actions of the Senate's chief committee was "unfair, uncalled for and unreasonable." Senator Pon rose characterized the Gore resolution as "rank absurdity and shallow dema gogism." The. Insurgent Republicans took up the fight by declaring that the Finance Committee must either report out the free list bill, tho wool bill an<j otner measures of tariff revision or prepare . for a long fight to secure a vote on Canadian reciprocity. ? Death to Reciprocity. The Republican leaders pplnted out that If the wool and the free list bills were reported to the Senate now, It would be Impossible to pass the reci? procity bill. The fight over tariff re? vision that Is sure to follow the in? jection of tho three bills at one time Into the ope nSenate,- would endanger the passage of the reciprocity bill except in such a changed form that the President might find himself un? able to sign it. "If the Senate wants to defeat tho reciprocity bill." said Santor Martin, the Democratic leader, "why should It not lie permitted to do so If In its Judgment that Is the best course to pursue." Then across the nlid'1 began an open bidding for Republlc.nl support for a general tariff revision. Senator fctal <Continued on Second Page.)

Now York, Juno 21.?Twelve stout tugboats strained and pulled on the White Star liner Olympic to-day on her arrival from England, warping the slant steamship of the seas Into her dock. The Olympic was given a noisy welcome as she moved up the Hudson River, escorted by a fleet of tugs, that darted alongside like pilot fish about a shark. The berthing of'thc Olympic, with her 882 V4 feet of length, was no small task. Tho Federal government had permitted an extension of one pier Into the river in order to dock the Olympic, but the greatest care had to bo exercised to prevent tho bulky liner from carrying away the new temporary extra dock. The Olympic made an average speed of 21.17 knots on her maiden run to New York, covering the coin-Be in five days, sixteen hours and forty-two min? utes. She was abeam of Ambrose Channel lightship at 2:24 o'clock this morning. Julius Adler, the pilot who brought the Olympic through the harbor lanes, remarked as he relinquished the wheel: "She handles like a catboat.'; Throughout tho voyage the Olympic's giant engines, the largest afloat, worked smoothly, and the 800 cabin passengers landed well pleased with thenr crossing. Bruce Ismay. presi? dent of the International Mercantile Marine Company, was a passenger, and expressed himself an being delighted with the latest and greatest steamer to Join tho White Star Line.

He asked his represent? ative please to send at once a horse to take the place of one that recently died; a dozen dining-room chnlrs. some new chinaware, a new carpet for the parlor and n few other incidentals. After closing the letter he added a postscript, in which he said that he hoped the Congresman would not forg.'t to send the "old lady" a new sewing machine to take the place of one she had used many years. Tho recipient of the letter was touched by the appeal, hut had to reply that If the writer got tiie things he wanted he probably would have to pay good American dollars for them. P. H. McG.

Lawton olsmlssed a motion pro confesso. filed several months ago by Daniel Blake Russell, of Dickinson, N. D.. who claims to be a son of the testator. The motion set up the alle? gation that the representatives of the will?William C. Russell, tne bonen elary. and Ferdinand Almy, the execu? tor?had not answered the questions propounded by the claimant In a pre? vious motion, and that this alleged neg? lect to answer was a tacit admission that the allegations were true and that the court therefore should so rule. Judge Lawton ruled today that the an? swer of tho representatives of the will had been properly filed, and the motion was dismissed. Judge Lawton assigned September 2(5 next ns the date for a hearing on a question concerning the construction of the will. In October the Supreme Court will give a hearing on an appeal from tho decision of the Probate Court, which decided against the claimant.

Recent de? cisions of the Supreme Court ot tne United States, In which vital points of weakness In the pure-food law were pointed out, furnished the initiative on which the I'resldent urged new legislation. President Taft Is of the opinion that the sale of dangerously adulterau-a drugs, or the sale of drugs under knowingly false claims as .o their effect In disease, constitutes such ac evil and warrants it being called 10 the attention of Congress. In part, the message Is as follows: "Fraudulent misrepresentations of the curative value of nostrums, not only operate to defraud purcnasers, hut are a distinct menace to the pub? lic health. There are none So credu? lous aa sufferers from olsease. i tie need Is urgent for legislation w.ucn will prevent the raising of false hopes of speedy cures ot serious ailments by mlsstatements of facts as to worth? less mixtures on which the sick .vill rely while their diseases progress un? checked "I fear If no remedial legislation be granted at this session that tne good which has already been accom? plished In regard to these nostrums will be undone, and the people of the country will be deprived of a power? ful safeguard against oangerous frauds."

June 21.?The House of Representatives to-day. by a vote of 172 to 112. practically a strict party vote, refused to concur In the Brlstow amendment adopted by the Senate to the House resolution providing for the direct election of Senators. The Brls? tow amendment gives Congress the power to regulate the time and man? ner of holding these elections, while the resolution, passed by the House during the early days of the present session would change the Constitution so that "the times, places and manner of holding elections for Eenators shall be as prescribed in each State by the Legislature there of." RcpresentatlveSells, Republican, of Tennessee, voted against the amend? ment, while Mr. Burke. Democrat, ot Wisconsin, voted for it. The resolu? tion, therefore. Is returned to the Sen? ate for reconsideration by that hody as to whether it will reverse Its former action. The motion that the House concur In the Senate amendment was made by Representative Olmstead, Republican, of Pennsylvania. Those who spoke In favor were Representatives Olmstead, Moon, of Pennsylvania, Cannon, Prouty. Jackson. Madden and Mann, all Re? publicans. Those against It, Represen? tatives P.ucker, of Missouri Cullop, Hardy, Clark, of Florida; Sherley, Witherspoon, Blsson, Hughes, of New Jersey; Randall, Richardson and Hef lln, all Democrats. The Democrats protested that the people of the States could safely be. entrusted with the. power of controlling the elections of their Representatives In the upper House, while the Republicans con? tended that such delegation of au? thority would take from Congress power which It should retain. Representative Rucker. of Missouri, in charge of the resolution on tne Democratic side, declartd that It was "the command of the American people that tho election of United btatcs Senators be taken out of tWs Inarket. ? Hn? Xo Fear of People. "I have no fear of the people." he said, "but of the combinations behind closed doors which trample on the most sacred rights of the people. Ulvo the States just a little more power and we'll take the lumber trust, tho' sugar and all the other trusts out of politics." Represtntatlve Mann, on the other side, asserted that this was an attempt of the Democrats to accomplish Indi? rectly what they had been unable to do directly. "You are. afraid." he said, "that your grandfather clauses will be de? clared unconstitutional." "I have spoken on the stump for ten years in favor of direct election of Senators," said Representative Prouty, of Iowa, "but I would prefer to leave the Constitution as It now stands rather than yield any of the power of the Federal government to the States." The resolution, when It Is returned to the Sonate. Is expected to precipi? tate a lively discussion, but it Is an? ticipated that it will go to conference within the Immediate future.

DEATH BLOWOEALT 10 POWDER TRUST Court Holds It Illegal and Orders Its Dis? solution GIVEN '1IMEFOR READJUSTMENT Government Wins Decisive Vic? tory in Its Fight Against Com? bination Controlled by Du Ponts?Court Follows De? crees Issued in Standard Oil and Tobacco Casea. Wilmington. Dol.. Juno 21.?The United States Circuit Court for the District of Delaware to-day handed down a decision declaring that the | alleged powder trust, which Is doml- I nated by tbo E. I. Du Pont, De Ne? mours & Co., Is a combination In re? straint of interstate commerce In pow? der and other explosives In violation of section 1 of the Sherman anti? trust law; that It attempted to monop? olize and has monopolized a part of such commerce In violation of sectton 2 of the same law, and decreeing that the combination shall be enjoined from continuing this violation and that It shall be dissolved. The action against the powder trust was begun by the government in 1DOT, and was directed against forty-threo corporate and individual defendants. The suit as to fifteen of the defend? ants was dismissed oecause some of the concerns are out of existence or it was not shown that they were parties to the combination. Given Until October in. The court. In an Interlocutory de? cree, fixed October 16 as the date to hear both sides In the action as to the na? ture of the injunction to be granted, and consider a "plan for dissolving said combination, which shall be sub? mitted by the petitioner "and the de? fendant or any of them, to the end that this court may ascertain and de? termine upon a plan or method for such dissolution which will not de? prive the defendants of the oppor? tunity to re-create out of the elements now composing said combination a new condition which shall be honestly in harmony with and not repugnant to the law." This follows to some extent the de xrees Issued by the United States Su? preme Court In the Standard Oil and Tohacco cases. -' There "are 'thirteen corporate?O.fd. fifteen Individual defendants declared to be In the Illegal combination. A majority of the Individual defendants are members of the Du Pont family* all of whom, except Edmond G. Buck ner. are 'either directors of the Du Pont Company, organized In 1902, and the.

The decision, written hy Judge W. Mi Lannlng. and concurred In hy Judge George Gray and Joseph Rufnngton, goes Into the history of Interstate commerce in gunpowder and other ex? plosives back as far as 1S72, when, the government charged, the first trade agreement of manufacturers was en? tert d Into. The court reviewed the evidence In the case, and found when the suit was begun that the Du Pont Company, organized In 100.2, controlled In the. United States the Iradc In block hlasting powder. 64 per cent; saltpeter blasting powder, 72 per cent; dyna? mite. 72 per cent: black sporting pow? der. 73 per cent; smokeless sporting powder, 64 per cent; smokeless mili? tary and ordnance powder, ' exclusive of what the United States govern? ment 'tself made, 100 per cent. The court also found that the Du Pont Company of 1003 and the Eastprn Dynamite Company, controlled by tho Du Ponts, had acquired control of six? ty-four different corporations between April, 1304. and September, 1907. and caused them to be dissolved. Ohnoxlntm to (,a\v. The court summarizes the numerous companies controlled by the Du Pont Company, organized |n 1902. and tho Du Pont Company, organized In 1903, and then discusses whether the com? bination it founl to ex.'st was obnox? ious to the provisions of the Sherman antl trust act, and comes to this con cl"sk n: "It matters not whether the comnt natlon be the form of a trade associa? tion or, a corporation, .If U arbitrarily uses its power to force weaker com? petitors out of business or to coerce thern Into a sale or union of combi? nation. It puts a restraint upon Inter? state commerce and monopolizes or at? tempts to monopolize a part of tnnt commerce In a sense that violates tne anti-trust act."

Porter, for tho compnny, in presenting his case, then said: "The United States Steel Corpora? tion practically dominates tho rail? ways of the country and Its tremendous Influence has enabled tho Universal Portland Cement Company, of Pitts hurg, which Is owned entirely by the Steel Corporation, to obtain more fa? vorable rates than can be obtained by Its chief competitor and rival, the Alpha Portland Cement Company. We charge unjust discrimination in freight rates, and back of It all is the attempt to drlvn the Alphn Company out of business, for that would be the logical oirtcomo unless both companies be placed on a basis of equality in freight f rates." Mr. Porter's statoment was brought to tho attention of United Slates Dis? trict Attorney Wise, who In turn placed it before the grand Jury.
