July 30.?General tariff legislation at this session of Congress, so as to leave the responsibility for any delay In tariff revision squarely up to the President. Is the slogan of tne Democratlc-Progresslvc coalition In the Senate and the. Democrat;. In the House. The President to-day Is accredited with being as determined as ever to veto any tariff bill passed by Congress prior to the submission of the report of the tariff board to Congress at the i regular session In December. Mean? time, the Democrats, continuing to press their revision measures. are wondering what the President will do when the wool bill, emerging from con-| ference with lower duties than the La Follette compromise. goes to the. White House for approval or veto. ! Is is tho most remarkable situation j with respect to tariff legislation that ?> has arisen In a long period. Despite I tho apparently authoritative declara- , Hons that the President will refuse o : place his approval on the tariff bill;:, j some of the Democrats, even Speaker j Clark, still express the opinion that the President may yet approve revi? sion legislation.

House will go through the Senate In. some form. Tbr Legislative Outlook. This is the way the legislative out-j look stands to-day: The wool revision' bill win he in conference early in thr! week.

There will be a Senate1 Democratic caucus on ihe bill to-mor row morning, however, to insure l's! passage. As the bill comes up for voto! immediately after morning business Tuesday^ the only opportunity for de-] bate will be to-morrow. Senator Cummins. Progressive Re? publican, will address the Senate to- | morrow on his amendments to the bill. Effort will he made to get tho measure through without changing its general character as a free list nieas-l ure intended to add to the number of' articles of common use which mayi come in free of duty. it is expected that In this shape It will receive prac-1 tlcally the solid Democratic and In? surgent Republican vote.

The numerous mineral water agen? cies are overwhelmed and cannot be? gin to supply the demand. Ma, ur Bland t- -day peremptorily suspended the blue law. which forbids ihe dis? pensation of mineral waters and soft drinks at soda fountains so far as tho water is concerned. No rain of consequence has fallen In this steiion in many weeks. With the famine of water the sewerage system has been abandoned, and the hurried Installation of surface closets: has brought about a menace to health that hai necessitated stringent sani- j tary regulations. Special sanitary guards ate being sworn in every day to patrol the city, along with squads, of extra firemen to minimize the dan-j ger from fire, for the city now is absolutely at the mercy of flames. Hundreds are leaving Charlotte, flock? ing to the seashore und mountain resorts to escape the present perils. KING RETURNS TO-MORROW Will I.earn Theo of Arrangement? to: tnrrj Ye-to Hill. London.

VESSEL t LOATS ON RiSIinG il^h Cause of Disaster Not Known, ?? i but Heavy Fog and Southeast I Gale Believed to Have Been [ Responsible ? Contrary to Early Reports, No Lives Are Lost. Halifax, N. S., July 30.?The now i Canadian navy was nearly deprived of, ! half Its strength to-day. when the i llagBhlp Nlobe crashed on the ledges! ! on the southwest of Cape Sable. Plve j hours later she tloated, leaking badly ; and proceeded under her own steam power to Shag Harbor, ten miles away, j where she Is at anchor with six fath? oms of water and a soft mud bottom under her. j The tlrst to reach the s'de of tue j disabled cruiser wat, the UnlteJ States revenue cutter Androscoggln. which j was cruising In the vicinity. The ; Nlobe's wireless call for help was j picked up by the Androscuggin. which promptly Hashed back that she would stand by to help and would do all 'n her power. Through the dense fog and heavy sea, which is believed to have been the cause of the Nlobe's accident, the Androscoggln rushed, anil was standing by the Canadian cruiser when the Canadian govern 'ment steamers Lady Laurler and ' Stanley, which had been sent to the I scene, arrived from St. John. N. B., with the tug McNaughton. of Yar- | mouth. The Nlobe found that she was aide to take care of herself. Though wa? ter was pouring into several compart I ments. her pumps kept her fairly clear, and Commander McDonald, of the ' cruiser, expressing his thanks to tho American cutter for her help, pro? ceeded to a safe harbor convoyed only by the tug. The exact means of the release of the Nlobe were not known here up to a late j hour to-night, but it Is % believed she tloated on a ristng tide.

The cause of the accident is not yet known, but a heavy fog enshrouded the coast, and tt Is said also that a i southeast gale was blowing. Sixteen men of the crew, who left I the cruiser In two boats, were the cause of much anxiety for many hours I after the accident, as they were lost j in the fog and at the mercy of the gale and strong tide, which It was feared would wreck them on one of the many , ledges thut abound about Cape Sable; but it was learned by wireless to-night j that all had rejeined their ship. They i went back to the cruiser In one boat, I the other apparently having been I wrecked. So extreme was considered the plight of the Nlobe when the ship first grounded that Commander McDonald I had ordered all boats cleared away, j ready for abandonment of the vessel If necessary. The two boats which were lost for a time, with their crews, (were the first over the side, general launching of the boats having been ! deferred until a definite idea of the condition of the vessel had been gained, i The Nlobe piled up on the southwelt I ledge at 12:35 this morning, while j rounding Cape .-;.ble on her return to Halifax, her home port, from Tar mouth, where her officers and crew had I been participating in an "old home" I week celebration. The impact was so 'heavy as to drive her hard upon the I pinnacle of rock and to arouse every man on board. Xo Paule on Board Quarters was sounded, and all the 1600 men on board responded with true naval precision. There was no panic, und the order to clear away the boats was executed as If tn a routine drill. ! Pumps were manned and set nt work, nnd It was found that they could dis? pose of the water. \ Meanwhile the wireless apparatus was brought Into play, the operators flashing the "S. O. S.'- signals in all directions and giving the vessel's posi? tion. These calls were heard at Kast port and as far south as Boston, and were picked up also at Cape Pace, N. V.. and .-".ible Island, and also at Father j Point. Quebec. They resulted in the kulck dispatching of the government ! steamers Aberdeen from this port and the Lady Laurlir and Stanley from St. [ John, N. B.. as well as several other vessels from other ports.

[Special to The Times-Dispatch. ] Atlanta. Ga.. July 30.?In the next \\f?|< ,,r so lawyers for Edgar Strip? ling wir. make another appeal for ex? ecutive leniency for their client, who Is now serving his life sentence in the Georgia penitentiary for the murder of vi', J. Cornett; fifteen years ago, a few months before he made his escape from prison and went to Danville. Va? where he became Chief of Police. Ii is the belief of his lawyers that Governor Smith will be more Inclined to look with favor on the petition than was his predecessor. Governor Brown, who turned it down after the prison commission had passed favorably upon the application The fact that the prison commission had seen fit to re commend a pardon on account of Strip? lings good record as a citizen since his escape, will play, they believe, a strong part In any action that Gov ernor Smith may take. Mrs. Howard Durham. sister of Stripling, and the woman on whoso account the killing is claimed to have, been committed, was In the city last week, and made two attempts to sec Governor Smith. Her trouble In get? ting an audience grew out of the fact that the Legislature Is in session, and Governor Smith la very busily occu? pied with niatters of State. The Legislature will adjourn In about two weeks, however, and Gov? ernor Smith will be at liberty for tho other duties of his office, since he has decided not to go to Washington until December. It is understood that Mis. Durham has been given an engagement, and will return to Atlanta this week to see Governor Smith about the matter. Stripling's health lias been very poor, and this will be another one of the reasons urged for his liberation. The application will be bitterly fought, as was the case at the first hearing.

OPPOSITION IS ROUNDLY SCORED Premier Declares That Conserva? tives Are Seeking to Reverse Lifelong Policy of Their Greatest Leaders of the Past, and Lauds Pro? posed Agreement. ? Ottawa, July 30.?The opening gut. in the campaign which will determine the fate of the reciprocity pact be? tween tho United States and Canada, was lired to-duy by the Liberal leader, .-Sir WUlrld Laurier. It was in the form of an open address to the Canadian people, and in It is set forth very clearly the issuys involved In the present campaign. The question at issue Is not a new one, Sir Wilfrid asserts, reciprocal relations with the United States hav? ing been sought by both parties for over half a century. The present Conservative party, he declared, is seeking to reverse the lifelong policy of its leaders of the past. The enact? ment of the agreement, the Premier predicts, would further Improve tho friendly relations existing between Great Britain. Canada and the United States, and would be an important factor In bringing about a general , treaty of arbitration. Treaty Long Sought, I Sir Wilfrid then referred to the re ! clproclty agreement of 1S.">4 between Canada and the United States which terminated In 1866. "Ever since the termination of that treaty," said he. "iill public men of any prominence in Canada, whatever their differences on other questions, have been unanimous In the attempt again to secure the free exchange of natural products. Nor is this to ue wondered at. seeing: that In the In? dustries of agriculture, fisheries, lum? bering and mining. Canada possesses advantages not enjoyed by any other country on earth, and that upon tho markets secured for the products of these Industries depends the growth "t our manufacturing and commercial interests and the prosperity of all classes In the Dominion." Sir Wilfrid, ufter reviewing the ne? gotiations which culminated recently in the agreement for a freer exchange Of commodities between Canada and the United States, said: "This agreement was strenuously re? sisted in the United States Hy various interests on the alleged ground that 11 was nil to the advantage of Canada ar\d to the detriment of the othor e'i untry, but thi? view that it was mutual!) advantageous to both coun? tries linally prevailed In Congress, anl the agreement stands to-day as an offer by the United States to Canada of that very measure of reciprocity which for more than forty years has engaged the earnest and constant ef? forts of every leading Canadian states, man. "The present Conservative party In Parliament seeks absolutely to reverso the lifelong policy of Its great load? ers of the past, declaring that it will oppose to tho bitter end the. very principles enunciated by both Sir John A Macdonald and Sir John Thompson In the last election addresses upon which each of these statesmen ever appealed to the Canadian people." A Clumsy Attempt. The speaker then referred to th* attempted obstructive tactics of tho Conservatives In the House of Com? mons to prevent any vote being taken in Parliament upon the agreement, and said: ??Such pretenses are simply a clumsy attempt to give some color to un? warranted nnd undignified obstruction. To overcome that obstruction, after a session which has already lasted eight months, would not only mean the con? tinuation of an unseemly spe.ctaclo presented by the opposition in th.? House of Commons since the resump? tion of its sittings on the IRth Instant, but would also mean weeks and months of wasted time and perhaps In the end. the loss for this season to the Canadian producer of the freo American tnnrket. "In this condition of things, it ha* seemed more In accordance with th* ? dignity of parliament, with the tradi? tions of those British institutions which all true Canadians value so highlv. and which the present opposition degrades with such a light heart; with the best Interest of the country as a whole, to submit the Issue to the people them? selves, so that the people may Judgo between the government and the oppo? sition and declare whether they have) changed their mind or whether they still are In fHvor of reciprocity In natural products and whether they will or will not have the American market for the promising crop soon to he garnered In Canada. "This agreement, bv opening new avenues of trade hitherto closed, would, further improve the friendly relation* j which now so happily exist between this country and the mother country on the one hand and the American re? public on the other, and which it la hoped may at no distant day eventuate into a general treaty of arbitration, the effect Of Which would be to remove forever all possibilities of war be? tween the great empire of which w* are proud to form a part nr.d the great nation which we are proud to have as a neighbor." The address declares there is no war? rant for the claim that reciprocity will lead to annexation and states that Canada will conttnue the policy of British preference. Government "In Panic." R. L Borden, opposition leader, In. a statement Issued to-night, declare* that th" government apparently "de? cided upon the dissolution of Parlia? ment In a hurry or even In-a panic, a* tbev gave no intimation to the many memhors who are accustomed to spend the week-end with their families, and.
