WILSON GIVEN AUTHORITY Illankel Provision Contained In Power for IlonrganUing Depart ments of GoTommoiil. WASHINGTON, May 14 The long fight In congress over the Over man bill, empowering the president to renrganlie government depart ments and agencies, ended late to day with passage of the measure unamended by the home. It now goes to President Wilson for his sig nature. The vote was 295 to I. Repre sentatives sterling, of Illinois and Gillette of Massachusetts, both Re publicans, casting the only negative votes. An amendment tn exempt the in terstate commerce commission from the operations of the measure was defeated, 1 1 3 to Hi. What opposition there was In the house when the bill came Into tho senate began to crumble and today It hardly was In evidence. Several amendments to limit the powers proposed for the president were voted down with little debate. Just what changes under the law are contemplated never have been Indicated. When the president asked Senator Overman to introduce the bill he merely said ho needed authority to co-ordinate the activi ties of various branches of the gov ernment In the prosecution of the war. And during all the long de bate that preceded action In the senate virtually no further informa tion developed There has been a general under standing, however, that among other things various functions now per formed by the departments will he transferred to the war trade board, the war industries board and other war agencies. Kenrganizaiinn or the quartermaster department and of the signal rorps of Ihe army are steps which are said to have been contemplated! under the law, but which were taken without waiting for cmKrnss to act. When the bill was Introduced soon after tiie president had signified his opposition to the war cabinet and munitions director measures of the senate unitary committee, cham pions of the committee bills declared it would give the president power to do iut what these measures pro. posed.

One'-toport was related of a dinner of German of. fleers including Captain Hans Tausrher, former agent of the Krupps hre, at the German club In New Vork followed by an automobile trip to the hiding place of the rifles. The most definite testimony as to the location of the rifles was given by Francis u Judd, a New York mining engineer, who had sought to buy them for the Russian govern ment. A man whose name he laid he did not recall took him to a store house on Liberty street, east side Manhattan, he said, and showed him an old gitllng gun, a couple of old Colts, a oi.e-pound field piece and cases said to contain rifles and cartridges.- Tht ee oases wore open. Five rifles were In each. One was unwrapped. It apparently was a Mauser, the witness said. Judd left the hearing with a secret service ngont to try to identify the build ing.

Italian troops re pulsed with heavy Joss a dosperat' enemy attempt last night to redeem thn loss of Monte Corno. It la be lieved that this was only the first of a series of effort to regain the lost ground owing to the value of the height which vommands the ap proaches to the valley leading from Trent to Roverto. The fight last night was in the darkness and ' h'ioody hand-to- hand struggle, over the rocky slopes of the mountain. The Italian posi tions, however, were retained Intact. Thus, far the fighting around Monte Corno has been of local char acter and not a part of any general, offensive, although the outpost soow increasing activity all along the mountain front. Sperirl.
