Party Lnes Obliterated. Washington, April 21. State ami party affiliations were broken ue peatedly in the house of representa tives in the concluding ihours of the fight on the Cinadian reciproc ity bill. Democrats denounced their fellow democrats for supporting a republican principle and republicans hurled criticism against their fellow republicans for n winning with the democrats toward the free trade goal. During the seven hours of debate 24 men Bxke on the reciprocity measure. Two-thirds or them made pi'eas for its defeat, in seeohes of from one minute to a half-hour In length; and in this number were two democrats from North Carolina and republicans from many of the northern states. Most of the criticisms of the bill were from agricultural sections, and based on the belief that reciprocity with Canada under the agreement would injure the agricultural inter ests of the United State3. Differences in the North Carolina delegation, oil democrats, were vig orously aired on the floor. Repre sentative Webb said that Claud Kitchen, who opened the reciprocity fight last Friday, had no right to criticise him or other members of the state delegation who proposed to vote against the reciprocity treaty. Mr. Kitchen Jiad accused him of standing with the republican stiand pat leaders, but be said 'he could with e'l'ial justice accuse Kitchen of having worked with these same republican leaders in the past. Temperate words from the pre siding officer, Mr. .Shcrley of Ken tucky, brought from Mr. Webb the statement that he had no personal ferling ag'aJnst Mr. Kitchen; bur that four members of the state del egation proposed to vote against the agreement .because they believed it was opposed to all dmocratic ideas.

Washington, April 20. A .positive declaration in favor of giving the president authority to prevent a repe tition of the killing of United Statue citizens by Mexican lxdligerants was made in the senate today by Senator William .1. Stone of Missouri, a (lorn- oirat and a minority member of the senate committee on foreign rela tiona. Mr. Stone commended the president for sending United States troops to the zone of disturbance, contended for the right of the United States to protect the lives and property of United States citizens and condemned the landing of the Drltish bluejackets from the Sheerwaters as an act of war. "Congress," he said, "should at once and without delay authorize the president to employ whatever force may le necessary to prevent a repe tition of the bloody outrage commit ted in Douglas, Ariz., and a repetition of which 1 threatened In EI Paso, Tex. "His authority in this behalf should be sufficient to warrant him In using the military forces in whatever way he might deem expedient and neces sary to accomplish the desired end, even though it should lead to an in : trusion upon Mexican territory. ; "Moreover, if any act done under this authority by the president for; the proper protection of our own peo-j p!o on our own noil should lead to hos tile demonstrations against American citizens, resident In the Interior of Mexico," he continued "the president should be authorized now or later on to use the military forces of the Unit ed States if that is found to be neces sary to protect the lives and liberty of peaceful American citizen wher ever domiciled in any quarter of Mex ico. "If without fault of ours the Mexi can people themselves create a condi tion that makes it necessary for this government to assume an offensive attitude, they cannot complain." he said. Mr. Stone would not agree that Ja- T T pan is in any way involved in the Mexican situation, nor would he con cede to the Japanese or any old world power the riht to interfere in the Mexican (situation. Agrtcing that the Monroe doctrine Is not directly in j volved, he argued that nevertheless the country should stand jealously j against any encroachment by Kuro P"an or Aniatic nations. "We haw not yet," he said, "as sinned the office of a l oliceuiau pa trolling these American repunlics, and even if oilier roiintiien Insist upon thrusting that station with its respon sibilities upon us. we will at least ob ject to those countries exercising a supervising and directing police pow er over us." Senator Slono nald the landing of the British marines In San Quetitin, "was not necessary to enable the three men in question tan Knglish inan and two Americans seeking to escape iho danger zone) to board the vessel, and hence if t he iuailn were landed merely to prevent a Mexican forco attached to the revolutionary movement In Mexico taking ponscs sion of this .Mexican town, the act was arbitrary, and being a hostile demonstration on Mexican territory, was an effect of war if authorized or approved by the llrltish government. It will generally be regarded with dis approval by tlio United Stated peo ple." ('barging there Is some powerful In lerest behind the effort to slir up strife between the United States and Japan, Senator Stone said every effort should l e made to discover and ex pose the identity of such interest. He said the president had assured him in the most positive terms that he had no information whatever con necting Japan with Mexican affairs. Said Mr. Stone: "In emergencies of this kind, involving grave interna tlonal complications, partisanship has no business In our counsels. As a democrat, esteemed by some friends on both sides of this chamber as be ing sometimes somewhat too partisan, I wish unqualifiedly to indorse this action of President Taft In ordering troops to the Mexican border." To justify United States interven tion, Mr. Slono detailed many acts and expressions unfriendly toward the people of this country and Bnid that in many .places the Mexican au thorities are unable to control the sit uation, producing a fitate of anarchy.
