"It can't be t ue." he repeated over and over again, ?because there hasn't been any New York or any other society woman In it. "But if she has taken this step 1? Is not because of infidelity on my part. I love her too dearly for that, and she is well aware of the fact. If Mrs. Colt has derided to try to di? vorce me It Is because I have bean drinking too much. I admit that she might have grounds of complaint on that score. All this talk about it mys? terious Xew York society woman lin? ing involved in the case Is not worthy of denial or continent."

CLEARING WAYS FOR RECIPROCITY Cummins and Simmons Amendments Will Be Voted Down. AGREEMENT THEN TO BE TAKEN UP La Follette's Speech Regarded as Most Formidable Obstacle in Way of a Vote?Dilatory Tactics Will Be Met With Acts of Coercion by Majority. Washington. D. C. July 3.^-LlveIy clearing of the ways for the eventual passage of the unamended Canadian reciprocity hill by the voting down of the Cummins and Simmons amend? ments to mat measure, and continued discussion and action on other pro? visions, in connection with the bill, will keep the Senate busy ?J1 this week, while the House, which will meet Wednesday and quickly adjourn until Saturday, will be active only through its committees. The amendments proposed by Senator Cummins, of Iowa. Insurgent ltepub Mean, which would add steel. Iron, coal, lumber, wool, cotton and various Canadian products to the free list from Canada, and the amendments proposed by Senator Simmons, of; North Carolina, Democrat, are some What similar in nature. These art. ' expected to be bowled over during the "legislative day" of to-morrow, which term, under the agreement for a vote then, might extend the day i into the night or cover one recess after anothei for several calendar days if necessary. After voting on these amendments the Senate will proceed with the con? sideration of the reciprocity bill, and amendments by Senator La Follette und others will be acted upon. Speech by Simmons. The proceedings to-morrow will be? gin with a. set speech by Senator Sim? mons In support of his own and Sena? tor Cummins's amendments, followed by roll calls on the amendments. The ; bugaboo of a filibuster practically has been raised, and friends of reciproc Ity will watch for attempts to Inter sparse the voting with speech-making, which they will interpret as the in? stitution of a filibuster.

Mr. Cum- ; mint will not be so insistent. | Senator La Follette said to-day that he probably would present his umend- I ments on Monday or Tuesday, and he probably will speak for the greater part of several days In explanation ] and advocacy of them.

I The first ballot In the election for Senator will be taken at noon Tues ' day. At least two of the five candi? dates for the place claim they will be . elected on this ballot, but despite. ; these claims, others predict that the I contest may be long drawn out. I L'nilke many previous campaigns In . j Georgia, the present senatorial con- I j test has been almost totally lacking | I In personal animobities.

Four Oppose Smith. The candidates opposing Governor ' Smith are Senator J. M. Terre.l. Judge W. A. Covington. Pleasant A. .Stovall 1 and Thomas F.

Jackson, Miss., July 0.?The personal 1 encounter at Starkville on Thursday between State Senator Theodore F Bilbo, candidate, for Lleutenant-Gov ernor, and J. J. Henry, former warden of the penitentiary, served to Increase the tension In the present United States senatorial campaign. With the exception of a statement by Senator Percy, in which he referred to the incident as a purely personal matter, the candidates for United States Senator have refrained from expressing; opinions. The most Interesting development expected during the week is the prob? ing of ex-Governor Yardaman's ac? counts by Accountant C. J. Moore, who has Issued subpoenas to secure the books of the several banking Institu? tions In 'which deposits of trust funds handled by Vardaman are alleged to have been misused, misapplied or mis? appropriated, and acting under instruc? tions from the Legislature.

[Special to The Times-Dispatch.J .Washington. July 9.?Old Sol con? tinued to beat down on Washlngton lans to-day in a relentless manner, and those high officials and members of Con.gress who had not gone with President Taft on the Mayflower or to mountain or to seashore, had to make the best of it. There was httle going on In th* national capital, but one story leaked out which may give Royal E. Cabell, Commissioner of In? ternal Revenue, a few hard nuts to crack. Mr. Cabell enjoys the distinc? tion of being one of the most pro? fusely polite and engaging of all Uncle Sam's public servants, and since he came into office tere he has had some extra hard problems to solve. Tho one which is likely to be put up to him in the near future, however, will tax his ingenuity to the furthest. A well-known Washingtonlan has discovered what he believes to be one of the biggest internal revenue frauds of the age. as the following letter which he addressed to Representative W. E. Cox. chairman of the House Committee on Expenditures in the Treasury Department, will show: "Six men." he says, "one a Treasury official, some nights ago sat about a table in Washington and partook of sundry drinks, mostly concocted from corn and rye. One of these men. ap? parently of great learning, proposed to show the Treasury official a piece of work that would keop him busy through the hot weather and result In the enrichment of the government. For. this man maintained, the govern? ment w-as being done out of largo sums due It through the internal rev? enue office. Hole In Bottom. "The enllghtener called for a half dozen bottles of whiskey that bore the government's guarantee that the liquor they contained ha| been bot? tled In bond. On the bot.om of each of these bottles the wise one showed a circle as big as a quarter. He main? tained that this circle was but the outward showing of a hole that had been bored In the bottle. He stated that all bottled in bond bottles would show thlg evidence of a hole having been bored In them, and the piece having been stuck back, after Inferior whiskey had been substituted. Ho defied any man to go to any bar and examine any bottled In bond bottle i'nd fail to find the obvious evidence of its having been thus tampered with. He called for half a dozen bottles that bore no bottled In bond stamp, and none of these had been bored. He de? fied all comers to find the betraying circle upon any bottle that had not contained the supposable bottled In bond whiskey. "If the contention of this man that these bottle; had been tampered with: that all bottled in bond bottles are so tampered with; that it Ls the rule rather than the exception for the in? ternal revenue law to be thus vio? lated, Is correct, then there Is a scan? dal in the Treasury Department which you are investigating, and a large pos? sibility of becoming the magnet that will draw vast amounts of attention There seems much prlma facie evi? dence to support this claim. Perhaps the committee might ascertain just what are the facts, and perhaps those facts might be the best find of the season. I wish you luck with it." Writer Invited to Appear. To this letter Mr. Cox has replied, inviting the writer to appear before the committee to-morrow morning, an.l in the event he does not appear, a subpoena Will be issued for him. Tho whole matter, as outlined In the letter, will then be placed before tho com? mittee. Ti.ere. Is little reason to believe that the man who originally mado the Statements concerning the false bot? toms to the bottles was speaking otherwise than in earnest, and If his assertions are correct, Commissioner Cabell. former Commissioners Yerkes and Capers and other high Treasury officials will at once be ca"lled upon to tell what they know about the matter. Should It turn out to he true that the bottled in bond whiskey has been tampered with, investigation will be made as to who received the millions of dollars which have probably Ron* Into the pockets of the wily grafter.

Never before has any heat wave lingered so long, and exhausted humanity, sweltering; and panting by day and by night, haa hoped and sighed and prayed in vain for rain and relief. Suffering Is Intense. Kven while the government experts were sending forth the promise of cooler weather the temperature was working Itself Into a frenzy in its mad rush to establish still higher re? cords.
