C. - Startling charges of an Intrigue against Major General Leonard Wood. chlef of staff of the army, begun by the late Sena tor Marcus A. Hanna and kept alive by his friends, were only part of a series of sensations which attended the adoption by the house of the army appropriation bill conference re port. Reference to a Western senator, whose son-In-law, Brigadier General Pershlng, would be one of the first of ficers In line for appointment to Gen eral Wood's offiee f Preesident Taft signs the bill which carries an amend ment to depose the chief of staff, allu sions to Major General Charles P.

House Adopts the Report. ?Nevertheless, In spite of a valn tight led by Representatives Prince. Cooper and Martin, the house adopted the report which had been approved by its conferees and accepted by the senate and if President Taft signs the bill, as it is said he will: General .'Vood will be removed from his omie on March 4, 1913. and the retention or disposal of many army poets, which the war department has characterized as useless, will be left to a commis. sion. Representative Prince began the fight against the report by character. ising It as "an Insult to the army, the house and the country" and In the debate which followed. Representative Cooper brought In the name of Sen ator Ilanna. "In all my public ca reer." Mr. Cooper said, "I know of no oicer who has been so malignantly misrepresented as General Wood. I was told on the very best authority that when General Wood was In charge of affairs In Cuba, a certain senator asked him what be proposed to do about Major Itathbone. director of posts of Cuba. then involved in the postal frauds. "'Senator.' responded Wood, 1 pro pose to prosecute him.' "'Do that. Wood,' replied the sen ator, 'and I will see to it that you never rise higher than captain In the service.' ".ince that time." continued Mr. Cooper. "that senator and his power ful friends have hounded him." The interchange which followed brought in the name of Senator Han na. The report carrying all the so-called anti-administration amendments was finally accepted. 121 to 92. It now goes to the president. War depart meat officials maintain it would dis rupt the general staff and overturn the army organization. There are hints that its constitu tionality may be tested if it becomes law. Many members of both houses hold that the disputed amendments are not proper In an appropriation bilL. Washington, D. C. - The right of congress to "recall" the judges of the commerce court by legislating to reduce the number of circuit judges by five as contemplated by the sen ate. presents a fine question of law which may reach the supremo court of the United 8tates according to of iclals of the department of justice. A high official of the department declared that congress would not leg talate the five judges out of omce in view of the constitutional provi sion that federal judges shall hold office during good behavior. In establishlng the commerce court. congress increased the number of cir cult judges by Ave and stipulated that that number should periodically be assigned to the commerce court. The right of congress to abolish the court is not questioned, but many ofmrals strongly bold to the view that these ive circuit judges once appointed can not be deposed unless the circuit court of appeals where they serve. in addi tion to their duties on the commerce court, are abandoned. Officials of the department of juf tice point out that in case congress succeeds in abolishing the commerce court judges they may continue their duties as circuit judges and sue for their salaries through the court of claims and t necessary appeal to the supreme court, whoro the intricate problem would be determined.

Wuhsint.a, D. C. - So msl.gly is Presidet Taft said to boelers in the need of the commerce court that his friends predicted that he Would veto the legislative, executiveo l j. dicial appropriation bill which pro rides for the abolition of the ouet. The bill also provides for the salaries of the president, all the federal judges and court ofdcials, members at eon gress and their mileage, members of the president's cabinet and em.llyes of the great government departabuts. The veto will be unusual although government officials did not beleve that It would mean anything more than a seeooad consideration of the bill and possibly the passage of a segar. ate bill abolishing the court. The legislative, executive and JudS. clal appropriation bill must be pa1sed before congress anally adjourns and unless the two thirds majority ees sary to put it through each house of congress over the president's veto rea be secured It probably would be seat again to the White House without the provision objectionable to Mr. Taft. Although some of the legal advisers of the president were Inclined to the view that the president could veto the amendment passed by the senate re. pealing the act creating the court with out vetoing the appropriatlpn part of the bill that view was not agreed to by many members of the cabinet and it was said Mr. Taft himself did not concur in it. It was generally accept ed belief that any veto would mena a rejection of the bill in its entirety. The senate by a vote of 29 to 1 re.' fused to reconsider its adoption of the conference report on the army ap-' propriatlon bill carrying amendments which would legislate Major General Leonard Wood out of his office as chief of staff of the army. The house will take up the adoption of the conference report soon. It it accepts the report, only President Taft's signature will be necessary to make it law. It is understood the president will not veto the bill. Ofmeicals of the war department as sert that the bill would cripple the general staff and the war college by reducing the members from about 47 to 25 omcers to a number Insuflb cleat to keep up with modern mIlitary developments. The senate has agreed to a program of three day recesses from June 17 to July 1 covering the period of the Re publican and Democratic national con ventions. The house will recess for three days during the Democratic national con. vention only ana will continue in ses sion during the rest of the national convention period on a "gentleman's" understanding that no partisan legitla tion will be pressed. This statement was made by Representative Under. wood of Alabama. Democratic leader of the house. Washington. D. C. - The further protect the acts of the interstate com merce commission, the senate amend ed the legislative, executive and judi clal appropriation bill to provide that no single federal judge may enjoin or restrain the commisaslon's orders. De bate on the bill was concluded and it was passed by the senate. It will now go to conference. An amendment offered by Senator Cummins and adopted provides that injunctions and restraints must be agreed upon by a majority of three judges. who shall be the chief justice of the United States and two other justices. An amendment by Senator Crawford to extend the Cummins' amendment to injunctions against state adminlstra tive boards was adopted. Benator McCumber asked the senate to assign the Ave judges of the com merce court to other United States courts, but it was refused 25 to 23. The house and senate have voted to cut off the court's appropriatlen and the senate has voted to abolish the court and end the terms of omce of its justices.

This was construeted by the dele. sates present as meanaing as me of them puts It, "a bolt at the goat."

The delegates were frankly told by the leaders, It is said that they did not have enough votes to control the convention, as constituted by the na tlonal committe, whleh seated so meay of the contested delegates. It was then that the Roosevelt del egates decided on this drastic action. The midnight conference completely changed the situation from what it had been earnler in the evening. Col Roosevelt's speech at the Auditorium theater urging his followers to fight "from the Jump" and the uproarious approval given his fighting words out* weighed the counsel of the more moderate members of the Roosevelt faction. Senator Kenyon was routed out ot bed after midnight and called lnto the Roosevelt conference. The latest proposal was submitted to him. Ho expressed the view that It was a falD one, that the 10 Cummins delegate. from Iowa would support the propoels tion and that in his opinion the K$ La Pollette delegates from Wisconr sin and North Dakota would also.

The Taft headquarters did not bead of the action of the Roosevelt dale7 gates until some time after and no plan had been made to combat the new line of attack. It was believed bowever, that they would urge Chair man Rosewater not to entertain the resolution on the parliamentary ground that he hbrd no Dther duty to perform as chairman of the national committee than to call the conven tlon to order and present the choice of the natiopal committee for tem porary chairman.
