St. John, N.
Orono, Maine, June 10.—Vice Presi
dent Marshall delivering the principal
address at the University of Maine
commencement urged the absolute ne
cessity of an education for all young
men, saying in part:
"Slight knowledge will not enable
the young man to assume the manage
ment of life's affairs. In the re
pressive conflict of labor and capital,
he cannot assume that either prop
erty or labor is everything without
tending to establish a peon class in
America or an oligarchy of wealth.
Complete knowledge may convince him
that it will be better for the republic
to be controlled by neither of these
"In I860 we had," continued Mar
shall, "a republic where labor was sat
isfied, where respect for religion and
reverence for law and order and more
sincere attachment for the constitution
were strong. In that year the propor
tion of the annual wealth created in states' dutieB.'

Rules Committee Voted Out
Five Bills for Considera
Anti-drys Declare Necessary
Two Thirds Is Not
Washington, Junei 10.—The house'
committee voted out a special rule for
consideration in the house of the ad
ministration conservation program,
consisting of five bills.
A special rule for the consideration
of the Hobson prohibition amendment
was not acted upon when the commit
tee adjourned.
The committee agreed to hear Rep
resentative Hobson and Rev. E, C.
Dinwiddie, legislative agent of the
anti-saloon league, before voting on
the rule. In committee there was no
effort to force a vote. The conserva
tion program arranged in the special
rule includes:
Ferris bill for leasing lands in Alas
ka with six hours' debate.
Foster radium bill with four hours'
A bill extending paying periods un
der reclamation projects with two
hours' debate.
Ferris bill for conservation of water
power sites on public lands with four
hours' debate.
Foster bill amending laws with four
hours' debate.
All of the bills on the program have
been approved by the administration.
The anti-prohibitionists in the
house declared the necessary two
thirds vote to pass the prohibition
amendment could not be secured at
this time. Majority Leader Underwood
said if the vote is delayed now it will
probably not be reached during the
present congress.
Niagara Falls, June 10. A
daggeroi's obstruction on the vital
point in the mediation proceed
ings has arisen which again
thrtatens a failure of the negotia
tions. The United States has said
to the mediators in equivocal
terms that it cannot consent to
any method of transition from
the existing regime to the pro
posed new provisional government
that can be construed as a recogni
tion of the Huerta administration.
The mediators are insisting that
Huerta be permitted to take the
appointment of the man agreed
upon here for provisional presi
dent. This, the American govern
ment absolutely refuses to accept,
not only because it is committed
against the recognition of Huerta,
but because it has been inform
ed by the constitutionalists that
under no circumstances will they
accept a peace plan which permit
Huerta to exercis the constitu
tional function of naming his suc
Washington, June 10.—The long his
toric debate of the Panama tolls ex
emption was in its last stage when the
senate resumed work with the prospect
of final voting before adjournment
tonight. The administration leaders
claimed the repeal would pass by a
safe majority.
First i order for voting came the
amendments to repeal the bill as it
passed the house, The principal one
is a compromise between the senate
democrats and republicans and quali
fies the repeal with the reservation
that it shall not be construed as a
waiver of the right of the United
States to pass American coastwise
ships through the canal free of tolls.
It is generally conceded that the
amendment pass the senate, later be
accepted by the house and finally ac
cepted by the president. While it is
said that Wilson will approve the
repeal with an amendment he prefer- i
red that it passed one.

Seventh Ward Divided
for Election
The city commission this morning
divided the seventh ward of the city
into two precincts, north and south.
The division line is the center of Ninth
avenue north. All south of that line
in the seventh ward comprises the first
precinct, and all north, the second.
The division was made by the city
commission for the convenience of the
voters. Many complaints have been
heard in recent years that the seventh
ward has been too large and the voting
place not easily accessible from all por
tions of the ward.
To remove this obstacle the commis
sion passed an ordinance this morning
creating two precincts. This will he.
