PRICE TWO CENTS MAY BE 100 SMALL Tariff Rev is ion Bills Likely to Pass Over His Veto. HURRY CALL SENT TO REPUBLICANS Whips Frantically Seek to Get Absentees Back to Capital to Prevent Democrats From Placing Measures on Statute Books Despite White House Opposition. Washington. August 4.?Democratic leaders in the House of Representa* lives believe to-night that they have ' enough votes to pass the wool tarnT ! revision bill over President Tuft's veto, i if necessary. .Mr. L'nderwood. Demo- | cratlc leader of the House, and Sen- j utor La, Follette, Insurgent, to whom! the Senate, conndcd Its part of the wool conference us a subcommittee, spent two hours to-day discussing the two bills out of which It Is hoped to lortn a compromise woolen tariff measure to send to the President. "We have reached no basis of agree? ment." said Mr. Cnderwood to-night, "but 1 have confidence that a bill tlnal ly will be agreed upon " Because of the apprehension union; the Republicans that there may be an effort on the part of Democrats and Insurgents to pass the wool und free list bills over the President's veto, Republican leaders In the Senate anJ I House sent out hurry calls tor Re? publican absentees to hurry back to j Washington. Will lie Discussed Together. The free list bill has been sent by both houses to the same conference | committee which Is considering the , wool bill, and Is to be considered at i the same lime. Mr. l'nderwood said ' that while separate reports would ne I brought In, both bills undoubtedly Would be discussed together. This gives the House ' emocrats additional trading stock In negotiating for a i compromise on the measures. The cotton tariff revision b'1'. passed by the House late yesterday, was sent 1 to the Senate finance Committee to- ; day, by B resolution of the Senate, which requires a report of the measure j by August 10. Senator Pen rose, j: chairman, has called a meeting of the Finance Committee foi 10:30 o'clock to-morrow morning, and when the Sen. i ate convenes lo-morrovv, Mr. Penrose probably will report the bin r?*ck with an adverse report. This was the pro? cedure followed with reference to the wool and free list bills. The effect that the changing tariff Situation will have upon adjournment of Congress Is n muter for conjecture. In both house? the leaders do not I believe that consideration of the cot- I ton bill by the Senate will necessarily lengthen the rapidly closing, session, which many of the lenders say may end between August 12 and August IS. Mr Penrose said to-day he would ask for an early vote, and Mr. L'nder? wood advanced the opinion that If this method were pursued In the Senate there was no reason to believe that Congress would be In ses; Ion more than a week or two. Working on Iron nnd Steel. The House Committee or. Ways and : Mear.s alreadv has begun work on the Iron and stell tariff. wh!<-h Is in thej schedule on which William J. Bryan attacked Mr. l'nderwood. and on which : Mr l'nderwood replied with the unan? imous support of House Democrats. "If Congress continues in session, tin Iron and steel revision b'll will be brought In at this session." said Mr. l'nderwood "If there is to be an early adjournment, the announcement Will he mnde to the louse before ad- i Joiirnment that the Iron and stiel tariff will be ready for action when Con- I grags assembles In December." The Insurgent leaders of the Sen- | ate are likely to bring the Iron and ( steel tariff up tt once In the Senaie i fight on the cotton bill. Senator Cum- I mlns. of Iowa, is anxious to m.-ike the Senate consider steel and Iron re- | visions and revisions of the -uhber and j suga schedules aj amendments to the cotton tariff bill. Before the Senate acted. Senator | Overman, of North Carolina. asked that the committee be given until Au- | gust I*, so that it might hold hearings j on the hill. This was lost 12 to SI. ; Mr. Overman contended vigorously | that the peopl ? of his State desired ' hearings although they \ re in favor of fair and impartial revision of the. cotton schedule Senator Cummins declared that Congress should go on parsing tariff revision bills without considering as to whether the President would veto them or not. Senator Overman held that it would hp foolish for Congress to re? main in session and keep on passing tariff bills, if it found out that he would veto thorn, all. "This Is a somewhat belated re? quest for n hearing." said Senator Smith, of Michigan, "and comes with poor grace from that side of the chamber. The truth is that the Sen? ator (Overman l l.as been gored by his own horns, and he wants for the In? dustries of the South protection which he is not willing to grant to those of the North." "If the President vetoes the wool bill." said Senator Overman, "as the newspapers report he will do. there tvll! he no need for us to pass any more tariff bills." Put It t'p lo President. "I hope," said Senator Martin, "that the Finance Committee will report the bill back tp^mijrrow morning so that we can have speedy action. Let us pass the bill and do our duty and put It up to the President, whether we think ho will veto It or not." Mr. Simmons, of North Carolina, Joined Senator Overman In asking for time for hearings. He suggested Au? gust 5o, and Mr. Bacon, of Georgia, favored August 15. Senator Overman declared that he had voted lo give twenty days time In Ohlch to hold hearings on the wool (Osntlnued on Third Pag?T) BELIEVES ALL WERE BRIBED I ?\\1ilte Suvx ,\'o Me.nest Democrat" Voted for liorlmer.

White declined to mention the names of any of the Republican" he suspect? ed, "because It Is Just a matter of j opinion, and I do not want to do an | Injustice to any one."

SUIi IS KiLE^ IN FEDERAL CuUR'l Chesapeake and Ohio One of De? fendants in Hocking Valley Amalgamation Alleged to Be in Conspiracy to Stifle Com? petition?Ohio Coal Oper? ators Back of Fight. - Culumbus. O., August 4.?Suit was' filed by the United Slates government In the 1'ederal Circuit Court to-day anam.-t six railroad companies and three coil mining concerns, charging a combination in restraint of trade, and asking that the combination oe enjoined from continuing business.' The government charges that the Hocking Valley Raliroad amalgama- , Hons ownership 01 the capital stock of the Toledo and Ohio Central, the Kanawha and Michigan and the Zanes- | vine and Western roads and its con- ; nection with the mining concerns j named ha.- crushed competition. The' defendant companies are Lmc hhore and Michigan southern Railroad. Ches? apeake and Ohio, Hocking Valley, To? ledo and Ohio Central, Kanawha and Michigan, Zanesviile and Western railroads, Sunday Creek Coa! Com? pany, Continental Coal Company, Ka? nawha and Hocking Coal and Coke Company. AffectH Four Great r'leldx. The government's petition alleges that the combination thus formed effects four of the great coal mining fields, namely, the Plttsburg,! the U est Virginia, the Kanawha Vai-1 ley and the Hocktr.g Valley. It Is alleged that the six railroads are affiliated, and that the three coal j companies are al&o, not only among themselves, but with the railroad com? panies. The Hocking Valley, the Toledo and 1 Ohio Central, the Kanawha and Mlchl gan and the Zanesvllle and Western were un .ll recently under control of j the trunk line syndicate. The Sunday j Creek Coai Company is a holding com-i par.y. controlling the Continental Coal; Company and other companies owning, properties In Virginia. West Virginia; and Ohio. The government's purpose is to pre- I vent the change of ownership agreed on last year when the trunk line | syndicate turned over the four rail- i roads and their affiliated coal com- ! panles to the Dake Shore and Mich- j igan Southern and the Chesapeake' and Ohio, the latter taking charge of the Hocking Valley, which is the prin? cipal one of the four roads To Break Up Coinblantlon. The suit seeks further to break up entirely the alleged combination be- ! tween the four roads and the Sunday ? Creek Company and its subsidiary coa! ' companies, which had been complained 1 of by Ohio coal operator:- for two or three years, and which has been the basis for innumerable suits brought in county and United States courts in Ohio. Back of the fight has heen the Ohio I Coal Operators' Association, of which I Howard Mannington, of Columbus, is ! secretary. He laid the case ncfore the j Department of Justice, and President ; Taft more than a year ago. and urged j that action be brought, and the gov? ernment has been Investigating condl- j Hons since that time. The whole suit hinges on the Hock ing Valley Railroad. The officials of this company. it is alleged. were placed in offices corresponding to those ? held in the parent company sojn after the Hocking Valley Road gained con- 1 trol of the capita] stock of Its sub- j sidiarles. and. according to the pet!- ! tion. were Instructed to operate the ? roads along the same lines as the parent company which had been main- ' lained The company then sublet con- ' tracts to the larger coal cmpanies and ; succeeded in placing the Continental ! Coal Company, which owns 28,000 acres of coal lands In the Hocking; Valley District, on its list along with Kanawha and Hockinjr Valley Coal i Company. The Sunday Creek Coal Company Was formed as a blind, the government 1 charges, to permit the Dake Shore and i Michigan Southern Railroad and the j Chesapeake and Ohio, along with the : four Ohio read?, to stifle competition I by merging all the railroads and the ! principal coal companies In the State Into one corporation while still retain Ing their own Individually. Turned Over to Trust Company. The majorty of the capital stock of 1 the Sunday Creek Company was held ' by the Hocking Valley Railroad nt the time it was forn. d, according to the government petition, hut was later turned over to the Central Trust Com. . pany, of New York, In order to avoid prosecution under the Hepburn law. The consideration in this transfer was Jl and a mortgage for the full value of the stock. Five agreements between the rail? road companies, the coal companies and the Centrnl Trust Company, of New York, are offered by the govern? ment as evidence In Its petition. In conclusion, the government prays the court to adjudge the combination between the railroad companies and the coal companies unlawful and In restraint of trade and to grant an Injunction forever, enjoining them from paying each other dividends on the stock they hold In the companies named as defendants In the suit. The suit was filed by Shermnn T. Mc Pherson, TTnited States District Attor? ney for the Southern District of Ohl.i. The petition was signed by Mr. Mc Phe-rson. George W. Wlckersham, At? torney-General of the United States; J. A. Fowler, assistant to the Attornej Oeneral, and O. E. Harrison, special assistant to the Attorney-General.

August 4.?According to a statement Is.-ued to-night the Franco German situation over Morocco shows a tendency to ameliorate. Germany, since the last Interview between Am? bassador Cambon and Foreign Secre? tary von Klderlin Waechter. having ceased to consider her original prop? ositions as beyond modification. It ts certain that a relaxation in the situa? tion has resulted. Nevertheless, It cannot be digulsed that there still is a considerable mar? gin between Germany's pretensions and the concessions France is disposed tn make, and that while the turn taken by the negotiations evokes satisfac? tion, exaggerated optimism is out of place until further Interviews between Ambassador Cambon and Major von I Kiderlin Waechter result In a com? plete agreement Netra Is Welcomed. Berlin. August 4?The prospect of a speedy settlement of the Morocco question' between Germany and France is welcomed on every hand, but the terms of the agreement, when they become known probably will cause con? siderable dissatisfaction in both Ger? many and France. Th* negotiations between M.

Although Uie luxurious private car Olivette, which the government has" provided for him, was attached to the train, the naval hero elected to sit by the engineer's side and watch him operate the 4.000-horsepower motor. "1 am Intensely Interested In your world-prominence in electric engineer? ing and railroading." the little admiral said through his Interpreter, "and lT. wish to avail myself of this opportun? ity to closely observe both. Therefore, I will ride with the engineer." The admiral rode In the cab to tho limits of tho electric zone, at Harrison, N. J., and there, entered his car. Ho asked many questions of the engineer and displayed more Interet In this In cldnt of his visit than anything else. Always impassive. During his stay here Admiral Toga had many conflicting experiences, but there was not the least change In his countenance. He was entirely lm-. passive so far as his face might re? veal his emotions, even when threa photographers became involved In a. quarrel In his presence as to preference! for camera position and were ejected ! from the room. It had been agreed by Commander i Tanaguchl and Chandler Hale. Third ! Assistant Secretary of State, that the ; newspaper reporters would be parmlt | ted to Interview the admiral briefly. \ but not on politics. But, as soon as I they had reached the Anglo-French | American arbitration treaties some ot the reporters asked questions concern? ing Japan's attitude toward Russia and the Moroccan affair. Admiral Togo re? plied briefly that ho would not dis? cuss politics, but the leporters persist? ed, and Mr. Hale and Mr. Tanaguchl emphatically terminated the Interview, but the admiral's face did not chango Its placid expression. When the admiral boarded the elec? tric locomotive In the Pennsylvania station he told his nlde that In riding under the Hudson River In a last and powerful motor, he hoped to learn much of value for Japan. Before board? ing the train he was shown over the new station, followed by a large crowd, and was frequently applauded. UNITED ON GOLDSBOROUGH Probable Nominee for Governor by Maryland Republicans.
