NO AMENDMENTS TO BILL In Formal Statement Penrose Claims Sixty Votes in Favor of the Canadian Pact. Washington. The determination of the senate finance committee to push through the Canadian reciprocity bill with all possible speed and the confi dence of the senate leaders that there is a clear majority in favor of the bill without amendments, was made plain when Chairman Penrose of the committee forced the bill into its sec ond reading before the senate, and announced its probably early passage. Consideration of the measure was brief. Before the senate assembled Senator Penrose had given out a for mal statement claiming sixty votes in favor of the bilL Chairman Penrose said he believed no speeches would be ready before next week. He had found, he said, that few 'friends of the bill cared to speak of it, but preferred to vote as quickly as possible. , . The , second reading of the measure brought it cfflcilly before; the senate for amendment and senator . Root's amendment was offered, but as Sena tor Root was not prepared to speak upon it, no attempt was made to vote. . Senator Townsend of Michigan, an nounced he would offer an amendment instructing the president to undertake further negotiations looking to a wid er reciprocity arrangement with Can ada. A LAKE-TO-GULF RAILROAD Railroads Are Acting With View of Securing Panama Canal Business. Chicago. The New York Central lines have entered into a traffic agree ment with the Louisville and Nash ville railroad, which practically gives the former a Lake-to-the-Gulf line, ac cording to an article in the Inter Ocean. The article says: "With the announcement made last night by officials of the Chicago, In diana and Southern railroad, that on July 18 that road would run its first train from Chicago into Evansville, Ind., the first step of which may prove to be a great railroad war, was taken. With the bringing to a successful con summation the plans of the former owner and builder of the road, John R. Walsh, the Chicago banker now in the Federal prison at lieavenworth, Kans., the .hands jf two of the great railroad , powers, ae Vanderbilt and the .Harriman interests, were shown already engaged in a struggle to get control of the gulf traffic . which win result from the opening of the Pan ama canal. "For, with the opening of , the old Walsh railroad to the Ohio river by the Vanderbilt interests, which con trol it through their New York Cen tral lines, a traffic agreement has been entered into with the Louisville and Nashville railroad which ::' practically gives the New ..York Central line a Chicago-to-the-Guif line and which also brings the first actual competition to the Harriman Great Lakes-to-the-Gult line, the Illinois Central has ever ex perienced."

The senate passed the Bourne resolution authorizing an in vestigation of the postal system of the United States and tq determine what 'changes - are necessary in the present methods.

DEPOSITS. BACK TO (Copyright. MIL) AN IMPORTANT RESOLUTION UNITED STATES SENATE VOTES IN FAVOR OF ELECTION BY ; THE PEOPLE. All Southern Democrats ' But One Voted Against Adopting the V,viick..t6-the house of represeniatives." Resolution: X Washington. The senate adopted the resolution proposing a change in the Federal Constitution to provide for direct election of senators, after a tie vote of 44 to 44 on ihe Bristow reso lution had been broken by Vice Pres ident Sherman, who voted in the af firmative. This action came follow ing nine hours of debate. The resolution, as amended and passed, follows: . "That in lieu of the first paragraph of Section III of Article 1 of the Con stitution of the. tlnited States, and in lieu of so much of paragraph 2 of. the same sections as relates to the filling of vacancies, the following be propos ed as an amendment to the Constitu tion which shall be valid to all in tents and purposes as part of the Con stitution when ratified by the legisla tures of three-fourths of the' states: "The senate of the Untied States shall be composed of two senators from each state, elected by the people thereof for six years and each sena tor shall have one vote. The electors in each state shall have the qualifica tions requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the state legisla tures. . - "When vacancies happen in the rep resentation of any state in the senate. the executive authority of such state shall issue writs of election fill such vacancies, provided, that tie legisla ture of any state may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legisla ture may direct. "This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any senator chosen' before it becomes valid as, part of . the Constitu tion." ' . ' THE FIRST BALE OF COTTON Bale of 1911 Cotton Sells for $1,015 in Houston, Texas. Houston, Texas. The first bale of the 1911 cotton crop was taken into the local cotton exchange for sale. It is claimed that this bale , makes new world's record by eleven days for the appearance at - market of the sea f son's first bale. The bale came from the farm of Ernest Mat? in Cameron county. The bale was sold for $2.05.84 per pound, the total " weight being 493 pounds, and the price $1,015. This -was the highest price ever paid on the Houston exchange for a ' bale of . cot ton. S. Jesse Jones, who is notin the; cotton r business, was the success ful bidder. He says he jioes not know yet what he will do with the cotton. He had three competitors until the S1.000 mark was reached, wnen tiie others dropped out THE SOIL TO FIGHT DtRECT ELECTIONS Popular Vote for Senators Will Be Opposed by All Southern Congressmen. Washington. The action of the sen ate in adopting theBristow substitute to the resolution for the popular elec tion of . United States senators shifts tne fignt over this mooted question Unless the -caucus rule is applied by the Democrats, it is believed that the Bristow substitute will be accept ed by the house, and that the cohsti- tutional amendment will be. submitted to the states as it passed the senate. In its present shape,-the proposed constitutional amendment is obnoxious to practically all Southern congress men and senators: indeed, its provis- ons.are viewed with alarm by. these statesmen who believe that its en forcement will nullify the suffrage laws of the South whereby the venal and ignorant Negro voters are dis franchised. , s If "the house accepts the senate amendment tq the resolution it mignt be safely, predicted that the ratifica tion of the constitutional amendment will be fought in the legislatures ot the Southern states. As three-fourths of the state legislatures must ratify the amendment before it becomes op erative, there is serious doubt as to whether it ever becomes effective. I.t is regarded as practically certain that Georgia will lead the ' states of the South in declining to ratify the popular elections amendment in its prseent form; Senators Bacon and Terrell voted against the resolution on its passage because of the adoption of the objectionable feature, and the Georgia congressmen, are unanimous in their opposition to the . acceptance of the resolution in its present shape. Unfortunately the Northern Democ racy entertains no such feeling toward this feature of the resolution. On tfie contrary, many of. the Northern Dem? bcrats believe the Federal government should supervise the elections. Moreover, they have thousands of negro voters in their district and they fear to antagonize them by opposing Federal supervision. The Northern Democrats and , the Republican mem bership form a majority of the house, and only , a majority vote will te re quired to concur in the senate amend ment to the original resolution. ' The only hope lies in a Democratic caucus. If the caucus . votes , against the Bristow amendment by a two thirds majority, then the Democratic membership will be pledged to, send th resolution to conference. This might save the situation for the South, as the conference might yield . to the demands of the South 75 Cents a. Day for Convicts. Montgomery. In a decision by the court of appeals and sustained by the supreme court - that section of the mode which authorizes convicts to be hired out at 40 cents a day is un- constitutional, owing to the fact that the subject matter of the fact is not clearly, expressed in the title.

Intimation of ."doctor ing'' the now famous Day portrait voucher, a consequent lively colloquy between Secretary .Knox and Chair man Hamlin of the house investigat ing committee, and testimony of Dis bursing Officer Morrison's white mes senger that he found the voucher on the floor near. Morrison's desk after the archives - had been ineffectually ransacked, featured ; the state . depart ment investigation, v Correspondence between Secretary Root .and Consul General Michael al Calcutta indicated' that the mysteri- bus difference between the amount oi the voucher and the actual amount paid to the portrait painter was ap plied to emergency accounts, probably Chinese matters according to Mr. Mi chael. . The exchange between Mr. Knox and Mr. Hamlin blew over very quickly. Mr. Morrison probably '.will be recalled to explain how the vouch er' happened to be- among the "crum pled envelopes" near his waste bas ket at the 'close of , the day's work ong after the search for the docu ment. had been on. The secretary explained apparently to the satisfaction of the committee the payment of ?5,000 to Frederick Hale, son of former Senator Eugene Hale of Maine, for services in connec tion with the Canadian boundary .nego tiations. Mr. Knox produced the sec tions of the" treaty of 1908, which au thorized negotiations with Canada to establish the line through . Passama quoddy bay. Mr. Hale was employed for this work, performed his duties o the satisfaction of Secretary Root, and Secretary Knox approved his bill of $5,000 a few weeks after coming into control of the state department As to the voucher signed by Albert Rosenthal, the portrait painter, calling for $2,450, of which sum Rosenthal got but $850.

That the Democratic legislature of New York is not enthu siastic over the initiative and recall H indicatec! by its action in . divesting Jthese provsions from the.' proposed new chareer for the city of Buffalo. The debate on the measure lasted five hours and was spirited through out; "I have heard a good deal about this new-fangled initiative and recall," said Minority Leader Brackett, "and most of it is flapdoodle very tenu ous flapdoodle at that" One speaker declared that if the re call principle had been in .effect at the time. of the Civil war President Lin coin undoubtedly would have been de posed and disgraced. - A third senator expressed doubts at to the constitutionality of either these principles or the referendum, while s fourth -contended that a public offlciai should be judged by his entire acts If the new charter is accepted by the people of Buffalo it will be the first experiment in this state of munic ipal government by commission which has been adopted in 135 cities scatter ed among twenty-six different states.

A mad scramble for windows and doors interrupted the sitting of a jury of elders at the Clif ton Baptist church, 5 miles from here, when Deacon Joseph Smalls, Jr., who t was on trial for card-playing, drew a revolver and covered the jury and audiece which he forced them to lis ten to his defending argument.
