C, und delivered nn address, the othor speak? er being Vice-President Sherman. Baltimore, Md., November 1".?Some of the friends of Senator Arthur P. Gorman, Including not a few of tho most prominent Democratic lenders of tho State, are at last definitely prepar? ing to contest the election' of Phillips Uei Qoldsborough, and within a few days, it is expected, proceedings pro? viding for the opining of tho ballot boxes will bo Instituted. Senator Gorman la fully cognizant of what his friends are doing, and While he is not materially helping them ho Is not at ptceont interposing any objections. As the standard: icarer of his party in the recent cam? paign, hi believes that he- should al? low the party workers to mako a full investigation concerning the rejection of Democratic votes in the city before lu- tokos n definite stand. Senator Gorman was in the city yes- i lerdny und conferred with United States Senator .lohn Walter .Smith. Attorney-General Isaac Dobo Straus! and a number of prominent Demo- ; era tie lawyers concem'ng plans tfv\ opening the boxes. Many legal i|in?- ! lions w, re Ultdor consideration and several well known lawyers held that the supervisors of elections did not ! have the legal right to put the name ui William it. Bruno cm the ballots tt? a "Progressive Democratic" .candi? date for judge ;<f tho Orphans' Court Pull Recount Necessary, Several methods for having the boxes opened are unocr consideration, and It is likely thnt one will be adopted In h lew day?, us it is realized that to ascer? tain the exact number of tickets marked for Senator Gorman which were re? cced it will he necessary to i/iakc n full recount. The plan which Is most Ikely to prevail Is for Hoger W. Gill, who was defeated for Judge of the Court of Appeal?, to contest the election of Judge Henry Stock bridge. While it is not thought that Mr. Gill could over? come by thousands of votes the major? ity received by Judge Stockbridge, a contest by him would mean the opening of every box in the city, und in count? ing tiie vote on the judge-ship, a count could also be kept on thnt for Governo; and every other otllce. if this plan Is not adopted, the de? feated Democratic candidates for the House of Delegates in the Second, Third and Fourth Legislative Districts will institute lights. Under this plan, how? ever, the ballots in the wards of the first District will not be recounted A contest along this line cut not be in? stituted In the First District, ns all the Democratic candidates wero elected. Under the election law. Mr. Gill or the legislative candidates could nie no? tice of a contest and the ca;y: would be heard by a civil magistrate, Evi? dence would be taken and the court asked to sign an order providing for th? opening of the boxes and the re? counting of the ballots. It 1 BSrgued that under the law the court would !>e compelled to plgn the order. If Mr, CHH cor.testa, then tho recount will apply to tho wnoie city. Ueaponslaltltty Shifted. At first It was suggested thnt Rob? ert H. Carr, who was defeated fot State's attorney, would make- the con? test, but In Ills ease It 1? contended It would be necessary to obtain prlma facie evidence of fraud before tho boxes could be opened. Such Is said not to be the case regarding the candi? dates for the House of Delegates or for Judge.

HANDICAPPED BY TREATY They Are Not Certain That Preference Can lie (.liven American Ships. Washington, November 17.?Regula? J tion of tho tolls for tha uso by vest sels of tliii Panama Cutiul will be an Important subject of discussion ami act ion i?y Congress at the coming sea-, slon. The bearing of tho Hay-Pounce foto treaty upon this government's | right to discriminate in favor of its own vessels may prove embarrassing. it is strongly urged by foiuo mem? bers of Congross thnt the rates shall not bo one cell! higher tbun Is abso? lutely necessary to get the business. It is hoped that It will not be neces? sary to make the Canal free, yet it might not be going too far to Bay thul Congress would do this If It wore convinced that other nations could conic In and monopolize trade at the \ expense of the United States If lolls i were charged. Do to re the question can be settled a thorough study of tho carrying trade of tho world must ! be made, nnd Congress mubt satisfy '? itself as to tho inversion of trade j likely to be caused by one policy or , another after tho canal is opened. j May lie White BlephnntJ Some Senators are known to feel very ' strongly that the United Stales may [ itnd the canal rather u white elephant! than an aid to commerce unless It In- j slsts upon the contention thai the pro-I visions uf the Hoy-Pauncefoto treaty or 190] do not apply to the c?a?flwiso trade. In other words, they would per- ' mil coastwise vessels of the United States to go through tho canal either freo or at nominal rates, or. If the uni- I form rates were to be charged such , vessels, the money to bo refunded to; them by the government. Secretary of: War Stlmson, In his recent address at Kansas City, suggested us a solution of the problem that tho power of the Interstate Commerce Commission, even to the regulation of rates, should he extended to Include the canal route. According to Article 111. of the treaty, the United States adopted as the basil'' of n neutralization of the canal tho i rules embodied In the convention of! Constantinople of 1888 for the free, navigation Of the Suez Canal. TllCSO | rules contain the following language, which is mudo a part also of tho Hay Pnuncefote treaty: "The canal shall be free and open to the vessels of commerce and of war of till nations observing theso rules, on terms of cntiro equality, no that there, shall bo no discrimination or subjects, in respect of tho conditions or charges of traftlc or otherwise. Such conditions and charges of trnlllc shall bo just and equitable." Treaty I? Not Popular. ' |* The diplomacy which negotiated rthi? treaty on the part of tho United States finds few admirers in Congress, now it is seen that the effect of the treaty may bo, while permitting tho! United States to build the canal, to ; effectively prevent the government ; from operating it to the highest ad- ; vantage of American commerce. It! is believed, however, that tho United I states should refuso to recognize i these obligations as preventing it 'from ] favoring its own coustwise trade. In i fact, Senators may bo found who | would not hesitate to urge the abro-, gallon of the wholo treaty should ? Great Britain decline to agree to the Interpretation of this clause by the i in li d States. Secretary Stlmson believes that tho United States has both a legal and a moral right to subsldlzo its own shipping, as Great lirltutn " does hor own which passes through tho Suoz Canal. Hut even If this is so it does not point the \tay clearly to cunnl toll legislation, for the principle of ship subsidy Is involved In the ques? tion, und It would bo dilllcult to get any subsidy legislation even of this character through Congress unless It could bo demonstrated thnt tho con? cession was necessary to mive tho bus? iness from going to other nations und would not operate us gratuity to ship owners when they could get along without It. It Is evident, therefore, that the problem of deciding upon ii I'ana .na Canal policy Is not an oasy one and presents many perpleritlcs. Urged to Settle Tolls. Congross has been pressed for a year or more to settle quickly the question Of eannl tolls by capitalists who aro trying to decide In their own mlnda whether or not H will pay thom to build ships to go through tho canal. One. capltullst In particular had a plan for building a fleet of some fifty steam? ships, and It was understood that ho received a good deal of encourage? ment In Washington, where It was In? timated that government mall contracts would be forthcoming If his line wero in operation. His scheme was distrusted at first ' In some quarters as possibly one to play Into the hands of existing Ines. j like the Pacific Mall, and thus end in monopoly, but recent dovolopments have rendered It fairly certain that ! the existing lines were anything hut pleased with the idea of having this new rival In tho Hold. I ROOSEVELT NOT ITS DISCOVERER ?' (Continued from First Pago ) tion of the great trusts and monop? olies. State l.inu Too Conflicting, "If the prohibition of tha antitrust act against combinations In restraint of trade Is to bo effectively enforced It iH essential that tho national govern? ment shall provide for the creation of national corporations to carry on a legitimate business throughout the United States. The conflicting laws of tho different State? of the Union with respect to foreign corporations mako it dtfhcult, if not impossible, for one corporation to comply with their requirements so as to carry on busi? ness in a number of different States." A bill was drsv/n by the Attorney General to carry out this recommenda? tion anl Introduced in Congress, but no action waa taken on it. President Taft will renew his recommendations to the Congress at the coming session. Colonol Roosovolt's present protest against "chaotic conditions" was thua forestalled by tho President. It is suggested that the only now element In Colonel Roosevelt's pronouncement Is his own defense of his action in tho Tennessee Coal and Iron deal and bin demand that thn government ap peal from tho court's settlement of the tobacco trust case. Discussed by the Cabinet. Mr. Taft's attitude on the Sherman law and the position of Colonel Rooso volt woro discussed to somo extont at the Cabinet meeting to-day, but not in tho sonso of attacking tho for? mer President, many of whose per? sonal friends still remain 'n the body of Whlto House advisers. President Taft does not conteinplalo a reply of any sort to tho Oyster Hay statesman Sit this time. His portion was outlined In a number of speeches r>n Iiis Western trip. He said that n:s* duty was to enforce the law; that he would enforce it, ami that It the Amer? ican people wnntod the law changed they could do so through Congress, lie bad no favorites to play among tbe corporations, no enemies to punish, it was simply it case of performing a duty be had sworn to perform when he tooK tho outh of otllco nearly three yours ago. Tho President's meSSMge to Congress will follow the sumo lines, and ho will put dourly before the people that If they are becoming frightened or dls-j satisfied over the enforcement of the law they can have their repreeentat'vos ? bung.; it.

I Mr. Stun ley called upon President! Taft to discuss with him the recom? mendations the President will make to Congress as to tho Sherman antitrust act.

RUSSIA'S ACTION IS CALLED INSULT New York, November 17?Jacob II. Schiff, tho banker, assailed to-day tho! attitude of William W.

The gathering addressed by Mr. Schiff met at the ofllcc of United States Sen? ator Jumes A. Oderman to request Sen? ators O'tiorman and Root to supyort the Senate resolution calling lor an abro? gation of the treaty of 1S32 ts^wecn the United StateH and Russiu, unless Russia receded from her position of refusing to honor American passports issued to Jews. Senator Root declared his belief that ae ontlnuance of patient negotiations between tho two countries would bring about an amicable adjust? ment of th<* difficulty, and promised to support tho government In such nego? tiations. Senator O'Gorman sayd he would vote for the immediate abroga? tion of the treaty unless Russia should elect to honor all American passports Issued. The meeting was. opened with the reading hy Louis Marshall of an ad dross to Senators Root and OGorman. voicing, ho said, the sentiments of 1.000.000 of their constituents, and calling upon tho Senators t? yule for the abrogation of tho treaty of l??2 with Russia. Mr. Schiff said In part: "About n year and a half ago Mr. Wilenken a financial agent of tho Russian government, came to me and urged me, as he had done before, to lend my influence to Russia's obtain? ing some financial footing here. I told him. as I explained to htm beforo, that it coul<i not be done. A little later he came to me rejoicing. Ho told me that he had Just made very favor? able arrangements for forming a syn? dicate of American manufacturers fir I the exportation of American products and manufactures to Russin, and for I the construction In Russia of Amor I lean plants under American manago I mont, which would ho of great advan? tage to America. Mr. Wllenkln eald that he was sure that this would bring Russia and America closer to? gether. When I asked him why lie wan making such arrangements ho told me frankly that It was a good thing for Russia If Americans mtide some money out of Russia, and whon' I nsko,i him with whom he had made I these arrangements ho said with John Itnys Hammond. "At thin I expressed surprise, and told him Mr. Hammond was not a manufacturer, but a mining engineer: why did ho make arrangements with j Mr, Hammond? Then Wllenkln nn awered without hesitation: 'Because I of the Influence he had on President Taft.' "Now you see how unhesitatingly Russia conies forward and shows its hand as to what It wants to'accom? plish. Thnt Wllenkin's statements were, proved later whon Mr. Hammond went to RttsHla and came back pro? claiming himself convinced that the I Czar was one of the most liberal mon arens on earth. "What does Russia do? It even thinks that It can Influence the Presi? dent of tho United States. "Think of the insult to the Presi? dent; ond should we remain quiescent and romnln obedient to Russia's he hOHts? Thesn are facts 1 have stated, I not theories." Hammond Denies II.
