In the Senate.
After two and a half hours of consid
eration the Senate on the 16th passed
the bill granting statehood to Arizona
and New Mexico. Upon the final pas
sage of the bill a roll call developed a
unanimous vote of 65 senators in favor
of the measure. The conference report
on the railroad bill was taken up, but
action was postponed. A number of
minor bills, including many public build
ing measures, were passed.
By a vote of 50 to 11 the Senate on
the 17th agreed to the conference report
on the railroad bill. Before adjourning,
the motion to concur in the House
amendments to the postal savings bank
was made the unfinished business.
The Senate on the 18th discussed a mo
tion by Senator Bristow to discharge the
committee on the judiciary from the fur
ther consideration of the resolution pro
viding for the election of United States
senators by direct vote and a motion by
Senator Carter to concur in the House
amendment? to the postal savings bank
bill. Neither motion was acted on. The
resolution authorizing an investigation of
the charges made against Senator Lori
mer of Illinois in connection with his
election was reported favorably from the
committee on privileges and elections and
was referred to the committee on con
tingent expenses.
The Senate on the 20th adopted the
resolution directing the committee on
privileges and elections to investigate the
charges of bribery in connection with the
election of Senator Lorimer. Senator
Carter’s motion to concur in the House
amendments to the postal savings bank
bill was considered, but not disposed of.
Senator Bailey started n filibuster
against fbe bill increasing the engineer
corps of the armv, Senator Borah de
livered an extend*! speech on the w est s
attitude toward conservation.
After passing the general deficiency
appropriation bill, the last of the great
supply measures, and the bill to retire
Justice Moody, the Senate on the 21st
again took up the postal savings bank
bill and spent about four hours in dis
cussing the motion of Senator Carter to
concur in the House bill. The motion
was strenuously resisted by Senators
Cummins, Bristow-, Bacon and New
lands. and supported by Senators Carter
and Burton. Inhere w-as great desire on
the part of friends of the bill to bring
it to a vote but, failing in that effort,
an agreement was reached to vote at
5 o’clock on the 22d.
The Senate on the 22d passed four im
portant general measures. First, the
building bill, carrying a total appropria
tion of about $24,000,000, was disposed
of. Three hours were given to the postal
bank measure, on motion to concur in the
House amendment, which motion pre
vailed. 44 to 25. 'Plie Senate also amend
ed and passed the House bills authorizing
$20,000,000 worth of certificates of in
debtedness to aid the completion of ex
isting in ieation reclamation projects
and requiring the publication of contri
butions made through campaign commit
tees in the interest of members of the
House of Representatives.
In the House
The consideration of the deficiency bill
bill occupied the House on the 10th.
General debate was concluded and it
was partly read for amendments. Mr.
Humphrey of Washington spoke upon
combinations by foreign steamship lines
for the purpose of keeping up rates
upon goods shipped from ports of the
United States. He said the Standard
Oil company, the steel corporation and
the harvester combine received prefer
ential rates which destroyed competition
with them.
The House concluded its session on the
17th bv adopting anew rule by which
a majority of its membership may at any
time recall from a committee any bill
or resolution referred to it and place
the measure upon the calendar for con
sideration. Advocates of this new rule
claim that it will effectually prevent the
pigeon-holing of any proposed legislation
which has the approval of a majority of
the House. The adoption of the new
rule was by a unanimous vote. The de
ficiency appropriation bill w-as under con
sideration during most of the session
of the day. but was not disposed of.
The House on the 18th finally disposed
of ttie railroad bill and the bill granting
statehood to Arizona and New Mexico,
only the approval of the President being
required to make them laws. Both of
these administration measures received a
practically unanimous vote. The general
deficiency bill, appropriating nearly $6,-
000,000. was also passed.
A commission to consider means for
the promotion of international peace was
provided for by a resolution passed by
the House on the 20th. Among many
other measures passed were bills provid
ing for the retirement of Justice Moody
of the United States supreme court on
full pay; requiring all ocean-going ves
sels leaving ports of the Fuited States
and carrying more than fifty passengers
to be equipped for wireless telegraphy;
and providing for a commission to at
tend the centennial anniversary of the
republic of Mexico.
The House held a night session on the
21st, and passed the arid land reclama
tion bill in the form which it had been
reported from the committee on public
lands. The bill provides for the is
suance of certificates of indebtedness to
provide a fund of $20,000,000 for the
reclamation of arid lauds. Earlier in
the session the House agreed to the con
ference report on the naval bill, and to
a partial rejxirt on the sundry civil bill,
sending the latter measure back to con
ference for further consideration of Sen
ate amendments still in dispute. The
substitute offered by the Senate to the
House land withdrawal bill also was
accepted by the House without amend
Purposely blocking a flood of ninth
hour legislation that otherwise would
have been considered, the House on the
22nd spent the entire day on the Currier
bill to permit patentees to sue the gov
ernment for unauthorized use of their in

Slaying Followed Violent Quarrel and
Body Was Concealed and Then
Thrown Into Lake.
NEW' YORK. Juno 23.—Porter Charl
ton. husband of Mrs. Mary Scott Castle
Charlton, whose body was found stuffed
in a trunk which w-as taken from Lake
Como, Italy, recently, w-as arrested as
he stepped from the steamship Prinzess
Irene in Hoboken today.
Charlton at first denied his identity,
but after being given the “third degree,”
he admitted that he w-as the husband of
Mrs. Charlton. Charlton made a signed
statement to the Hoboken police, which
was a confession that he had slain his
Charlton said in his confession that he
and his wife had been having supper to
gether at the villa on Lake Comb, and
that they had engaged in a violent quar
Murder Followed Quarrel.
Charlton said his wife, who was one
of the best women in the world, but had
an ungovernable temper, called him some
vile names and that finally w r hen he
could not stand her abuse any longer he
attacked her with a wooden mallet.
The young man said that he struck her
over the head three times, knocking her
unconscious and killing her as far as he
knew. Charlton told the police that he
then stuck the body of his wife in a
trunk and carried it down to the lake,
w r here he threw the trunk in the w-ater.
Charlton arrived in the steamer Prin
zess Irene, w-hich came in today from
Genoa and Naples. The police were
watching for the arrival of the steamship
Deutschland this afternoon as it had
been reported that Charlton sailed on
that steamer. Some officers, how-ever,
> ere sent to watch the docking of the
Prinzess Irene. Three of them took up
positions on the pier, where they could
watch everybody leaving the vessel.
Officers Pounce Upon Him.
The officers had a description of Charl
ton and when they saw a man resem
bling him leave the ship they pounced on
him nud placed him under arrest. He
protested vigorously and seemed to in
cline to offer forcibly resistance but the
handcuffs w-ere speedily applied to him
aud he submitted.
Capt. Scott, the brother of Mrs. Charl
ton who had come to Hoboken today to
aid the Hoboken police in identifying the
suspect, was quickly summoned to the
pier when Charlton w-as arrested. Capt.
Scott took one glance at the prisoner
and said the man was Charlton.
In the meantime, the patrol wagon
had been summoned from the-"station
house and the prisoner with the three
detectives and Capt. Scott w-as hurried
to headquarters, w-here Capt. Hayes put
him through the “third degree.”
Makes Signed Statement.
Within half an hour after his arrest
Charlton had signed the following state
My wife and 1 lived happily together. She
was the best woman in the world to me, but
she had an ungovernable temper. So had I.
We frequently quarreled over the most
trivial matters and her language to me was
frequently so foul that I know she did not
know- the meaning of It.
The night I struck her she had been
quarreling with me. She was in the worst
temper I had ever seen her in. I told her
if she did not cease I would leave her and
put a stop to it. She stopped for a little
while aud started again.
1 took a mallet which I had used to do
household repairs and struck her three
times. 1 thought she was dead. I put the
body in a trunk In which I also threw the
About 12 that night I brought the trunk
to my house and dragged it down to a
small pier and threw it over board. I
left the following night and went to Como,
aud from there to Genoa, where I took the
steamer Irene three days later.
The room where I killed her was an out
door sleeping apartment.
..-.Russian Is Guiltless.
At the suggestion of an attorney whose
services he secured shortly after* his ar
rival at the police station, Charlton add
ed this postscript to his statement:
“I have been informed that C. K.
Ispolatoff has been implicated, and I
wish to state that this gentleman is ab
solutely guiltless. I have no defense to
make and don’t wish to.”
Charlton was given the “third degree”
by Chief of Police Hayes of Hoboken
and several detectives. Before the con
fession was obtained, it was stated by
the police that Charlton became infu
riated by the gruelling to which he was
being subjected and springing to his feet

Taken Before Recorder.
After Charlton’s confession he was
taken before Recorder McGovern cud ar
raigned. As the recorder finished read
ing Charlton's cold-blooded confession
the prisoner said in a steady voice:
“I beg your honor's pardon, but there
is a slight mistake. Where the document
reads T have no defense to make and
wish to make none’ it should read *Or
wish none.' ”
The man's tone was that of a careful,
clerkly person, anxious to have his man
uscript read smoothly. The recorder
looked at him in blank surprise. Sweat
was rolling down the recorder’s red face,
but Charlton was cold as ice outwardly
as well as inwardly. He wasn’t even
perspiring in the choking atmosphere of
the crowded room.

The Italian government has consist- )

There is a reciprocity in such matters /
which would prevent the United States ?

Russian, who became acquainted with
the Charltons while they occupied the
villa on the shore of Lake Como, and
who. following the discovery of the wom

the authorities. The Russian established
to the satisfaction of the authorities that
he knew nothing of the crime beyond
what was known to everyone, and re
cently he was released.
Traveled Under Assumed Name.
Charlton traveled under the name of
Charles W. Coleman of Omaha, though
the name appeared on the passenger list
as John Coleman. The accused man was
utterly broken in spirit following bis ar
rest and it was apparent that he had lost
much weight on his flight from the scene
of the crime.
Charlton denied flatly, when placed
under arrest by the detectives, that he
was the man wanted and took the of
ficers to his cabin to prove that his name
was Coleman. He asserted that he lived
in Omaha and had never heard of Charl
ton or his wife.
When asked if he could produce let
ters to prove that he had received any
money under the name of Coleman the

Porter Charlton, had occupied a villa
on the lake front leased by them some
time before. At the time the woman’s
body was recovered, Porter Charlton
could not be found.
The Italian police have insisted that
Charlton was alive and have directed
their energies to locating the young man.
American Consul Caughy on the other
hand held to the theory that a double
murder had been committed and it was
through his representations that the Ital
ian authorities engaged divers to make
a search of the lake bottom near where
the trunk had been submerged.
This work was but recently abandoned.
Meantime the detectives followed up
their own theory and their most recent
conclusion was that Charlton was a pas
senger upon some steamer which had
sailed from Genoa or other Italian port
for New York.
The only arrest made in Italy in con
nection with the case was the detention
of Constantine Ispolatoff. a Russian who
had made the acquaintance of the Amer
ican and his wife. He was examined re
peatedly, but satisfied the police that he
had not figured in the tragedy, and was

Greatest Taft Victory
In many ways the outcome of this
i long contest stands as the greatest single
victory achieved by President Taft since
he entered tho white house. He had
harder obstacles to meet in connection
with postal banks than in the case of
the railroad bill—the “backbone” of the
legislative programme—or any of the oth
er important matters on the list. Pub
lic sentiment, of course, was the main
support behind the President, who,
back I also by the party platform, crys
tallized the demand of years and at the
finish put forth personal efforts to insure
alaw T that is sound financially.

The majority report of the special Sen
ate committee which has been investigat
ing these questions was submitted to
the Senate today by Senator Lodge,
chairman of the committee. A meeting
was held prior to the presentation of the
report and the minority members of the
committee protested against the Charac
ter of the findings.
After a long argument, the minority
was authorized to employ an expert to go
over the report of the majority and pre
pare the minority views for submission
to the Senate. The report made by
Senator Lodge w r as an exhaustive one,
coilipiled from testimony gi 'eu by forty
one witnesses, reports received from con
sQls and from foreign governments. It
contains a large number of tables giving
the range of prices over the last decade.
The majority charges that its work was
restricted by reason of the refusal of the
Senate to appropriate the $65,000 asked
for by the committee which would have
been to employ agents in the field.

As Precious Metal Increases in Quantity
Value of Articles Measured by
It Is Enhanced,
ST. PAUL. Minn., June 23. —Speak- 1
inR on ‘‘The High Cost of Living" be
fore the Minnesota Bankers’ association
today, President W. C. Brown of the
New York Central lines quoted statis
tics to show the increase in the cost of
all products of the farm, factory, ami
mines, and then said;
“Economists agree that as the basic
metal (gold) increases in quantity, the
Price of everything measured by and
paid for with that metal is invariably
enhanced in value.
“I-or this reason the pay of labor has
steadily advanced and must continue to
advance in some fair ratio with the in
crease in the cost of things that labor
must buy.
“Everything save wages, railroad rates
and fixed incomes from long-time se
curities, continuously and almost coin
cidently adjust themselves to the chang
ing conditions resultant upon this influx
of gold.
Rates Must Be Adjusted.
“Wages are adjusted from time to time
and securities as they mature will he re
funded upon a higher basis. The rates
charged by the railroads must also under
the supervision of proper governmental
authority be adjusted from time to time
to meet those conditions.”
Mr. Brown then spoke of the “alarm
ing rapidity with which the consumption
of the products of the nation’s farms is
overtaking production,” and continued:
“When the comes that this nation
fails to produce sufficient food to supply
our own people, when we no longer send
the products of our farms abroad, bring
ing back the gold from foreign nations—>
what will be the cost of living in this
country, and where will the money come'
from to meet the cost?
Would Establisn Farms.
“What one battleship costs would es
tablish two splendid agricultural experi
ment or demonstrations farms in every
state in Ihe Union, and i will guarantee
if this is done and the work intelligently
and energetically carried on, that as ft
res-Tult of it, the value of the increased
product of the nation’s farms will, witniu
ten years, buy and pay for every battle
ship of every navy that boats.”
“I am in favor of an adequate navy,,
but 1 wish (he money expended in build
ing just one battleship could be devoted:
to intelligent agriculture.
Insurgents in Nicaragua Back at Point
Where They Were Defeated
by Madriz Troops,
WASHINGTON, D. C., Jane 23.
Gen. Menu and his command of 15(H)
men occupied San Vicente, a few miles
from Acoyupe, Wednesday, according to
cable dispatches received this morning
by Dr. Castrillo, representative in Wash
ington of the Estrada provisional govern
ment of Nicaragua.
Gen. Mena was then advancing on
Acoyapa. Only a few miles of compara
tively level country and the Tipitapa riv
er now separate the insurgent army from
the city of Grenada, where the people*
and those of the territory thereabouts
are in sympathy with the revolutionists.
This brings the insurgent army to the
point where it received a crushing defeat
from the Madriz troops early in March
and were driven hack to Bluefields,
where the revolutionary forces were re
