then he voted for lt. This statement.' Mr. Jones declares. Ss absolutely untrue. He had never Voted for ship subsidy, either before or after the Newport News shipyards were put In this district. The onl> measure which could have aided the merchant marine, und for which he voted, was a measure that passed the tfenate unanimously. It was In a| eense n ship subsidy measure, and did not take a dollar out of tho public j treasury. ''If," anid Mr. Jones. "Senator Martin means to characterize this measure as; ship subsidy ho is equally guilty with me. as was every other Democratic Senator." ? The speaker then declared that the record would establlsn the fact, not? withstanding Senator Martin's denial, that he had dodged a vote on the Qal linger ship subsidy bill, ami that It was not true thut he. Senator Martin, had a live pair, as stated in letter. As to Senator Martin's explanation 1 of his tariff votes, which Mr Jones had criticized, the speaker charged that it was no explanation ut all. und he pointed out from the Congressional itecord that Senator Martin had not only dodged more than a hundred votes, but that he hod voted many times with AldrlCh. He suited that ho lud already demonstrated many times the inaccurate and misleading char- ! acter of the Sims pamphlet, which Senator Martin is now rohdiag around asking the people to accept it as an ' explanation of all his votes on tariit measures. As to Senator Martin's defense of ?the Union Station bill, Mr. Jones de -clared it was the weakest and most 'absurd which he had advanced in sup? port of his record; that Senator Mar? tin had engineered through (Congress a bill irlving tw'o rallrui'.ds (3,000,000, I and only one other Democrat nad voted ' .-for it. Mr. Jones then took up the Thomp? son letters and Interpreted their con? tents, saying that the railroads were not interested to the extent of spend? ing thousands of dollars merely to ' ln-tiro a Democratic Legislature. No Intelligent human being:, he said, could believe that the Democratic party at that time was in danger ot" losing the Legislature, Mr. Jones de? clared that the money contributed by the railroads was for the purpose of preventing the pasj-age of the Kent bill, and that he had other Informs tlon not yet submitted to prove his ' contention :f the evidence already sub? mitted was net sufficient. He said , that he had reliable information. Which he could produce at the proper '? time, that J. B. Thompson was In | Richmond during the greater portion of the months of December and Jan- j nary. directing railroad Influences, against the pasage of the Kent bill, end that Senator Martin was thor OUghly in touch with the situation at the lime. Mr Jones, in a conversation here : to-day. said that he hoped Senator i Mar'tn w-ould take the slump as soon I ns Congress adjourned. ACEVED0 A FUGITIVE Troops on Trail of Latest Cuban Revolutionist. Havana. August 1,?No trace had been found to-night of General Gull- i l^rrr.o Acevedo and tho members of an (.rated pony who took tho field at Be- ! jrla late last night after having issued a manifesto denouncing tho adminis? tration of President Gomez as cor? rupt, and ceJling upon the executive to resign Tr.ere are various reports as to tho direction the party took, but the gov? ernment Is reasonably sure they went towards Pinar del Rio, apparently in the hope of obtaining relnforoeiaents In the region where considerable dis? satisfaction la told to e.vlst. The.ro Is some doubt whether Ace vedi.'s force murdered Manuel Naran.lo, n truck farmer In tho suburb of Luy nno, who. It was reported, was shot l.ecauso ha refused to act as the party's pulde. Tho government is taking ex? traordinary measures to capture the lugltlves.

VAST HOLDINGS WERE ACQUIRED Property Valued at $200,000,000 I Secured by Steel Cor? poration. Now York, August I,?That the ore', and coal holdings acquired by the I United States Steel Corporation In the j absorption of the Tennessee Coal and! Iron Company in 1907, have a valua? tion of $2??,000,oi.'? was estimated from j ugures on the mineral holdings ot tho j Tennessee Company given to-day to the House of Representatives commit- l tee on inquiry into the Steed Corpora- 1 tion by expert engineers. I In acquiring the Tennessee Com panqy, the United States Steel Corpora- ! tlon exchanged 5 per cent, second bonds valued at 129,000,000, the transaction i having been brought about to prevent' tho collapse of the New York broker- j uge firm 01 Mooru & Schley because Of excessive loans with Tennessee Coal and Iron stack as collutorul. Since the beginning of the Inquiry ; Into that deal Representative Stan- j ley and other members of tho House committee have sought to develop evl. > dence tending to prove charges that the Impending panic and danger to Moore & Schley was not the prime niotivo for the merger, but that it was a desire on the part of the. Steel Corpoiatloji to acquire the Tennessee Company and Us vast mineral deposits 1 ot the Birmingham district. In fur- | therance of that idea, notwithstanding the determined declarations of witness after witness who participated In the exchange that the suggestion of con? spiracy was preposterous, the commit tee heard to-duy the. testimony of C. P. Perln, Wolter Moore und W. M. (itven expert engineers, who ap? praised the deposits of tho Birming? ham rteid in 1904, These men declared that the oro de? posits of that region and their prox? imity to coal deposits estimated at nearly 2,000,000,000 tons, make that territory almost unparalleled from an ore-producing standpoint. Ore royal? ties of SS cents a ton on more than i 4u0.0o0.000 tons In that region acquired by tho Steel Corporation from the Tennessee Company, and coal deposits aggregating more than l.soo.ooo.ooo tuns, were given by tho experts ua a busis upon which members of the committee compute that these prop? erties alone are worth $200,000,000. In corroborating a statement mado by Engineor Perin, W. M. Given, of Bir? mingham, pictured the Birmingham ore field as of Incalculable value, taking Into consideration all undeveloped re? sources. Of the nvullnble ore in all the region the estimated holdings of the Tennessee Coal and Iron Company were given as from SO to 70 per cent. Tho experts agreed that pig iron could be produced there $4 cheaper than In the rittsburg district, and $3 a ton leas than any place In the world. To-morrow, Grant B. Schley, of Moore & Schley, Is expected to tes? tify. J. II. Topping, another member of the Tennessee Coal and Iron syn? dicate, also hns been subpoenaed.

Some Idea of tho attitude of the authori? ties, however, toward the beers now sold may be derived from * letter written by Secretary Wlison. of the Department of Agriculture, produced at to-day's hearing by John It. Mauff. of Chlcogo. representa? tive of the National Consumers' League, us well as of the barley growers of Wisconsin ?nd Minnesota, who Insist upun the super? iority of their product over corn and othor grains used. The letter was written Januaiy 21, 1911, to S. D. Kump, of Indianapolis, Ind., a baiicy dealer, and Seretary Wilson says: i have Just been interviewing our chem? ists and puro food experts along barley lines, and it Is In their minds and mine to reach something definite with regard to what beer is. Wo could require that bear made from anything else than barley should have u label showing Its component parts; I think we cm go that tar. It wu And that any beers Injurious to the public health uro being made wo could declare them adulter? ants and stop the Interstate trade In thtj.i. It seems to be a subject concerning which cur people know less than almost anything e:sc, but I have been urging Inquiry' Into it; 1 am in sympathy with you along this line. In? vestigation will bring the facts, and we will have an investigation maac." Lawrence Maxwell, of Cincinnati, former United states solicitor-general and now rep? resentative of thousands of corn growers In the Midi\' West, protested against tho : movement to label specifically the beers mud., from products oilier than bailey, malt and hops. Asked by A. Slaughter, of the Wisconsin Slute Board of the American So elety of Equity, wnether he would object lo the labeling of all beers, Mr. Maxwell de- . olared that labels were unnecessary, that President Taft in his decision on "What is whiskey?'' bad laid down Ihe rule lhat no liquor need be labeled as to Iis component parts. * "Heer Is beer." said Mr. Maxwell in con elusion. Mr. Mauff read from advertisements of brewers claiming that their beer* were made of barley, mall anJ hops, when In reality none of these Ingredients was used. ] One ad vorilsomciH read: "If you only knew what wo know about beer, you would drink no other than our beer." "Yes." comminlcd Dr. Wiley, "maybe if '? we knew what they know about beer we : would not drink any beei at all." Lynchburg Loses Suit. [Special to The Tlrr.es-Dispatch.) Lynchburg.
