Mr Boverldgo declared he would

mittee in Increasing tho house rate

FIRE IN NEWS ANNEX
Salt Lake City May 29 Careless
ness resulted In a slight fire in the
News annex at 11 oclock last night
the slight damage being due to tho
fireproof character of the building
According lo the watchman several
of tho Oregon Short Line clerks pn

tint eicnlug and one of thorn on loav
injf lighted a cigar and didnt look to
DQO whO e jio throw his match There

lessness of Short Llno clerks One of
them threw a lighted match Into a lot
of waste paper on the fifth floor tho
other day and Oiero was a bright
blaze before Ike Rodon the elevator I
conductor discovered and put the fire
out with a bucket of water
It was the carelessness of a young
man in throwing aside a lighted cigar

Commercial club building Not oven
a slice of paper was left to the rail

TAfT PUTS IN A 1
STRENUOUS DAY 1
Washington May 29 President
Taft made four speeches today rodo
many miles by automobile and special
train pitched in a game of baseball
at tho Allegheny Country club and
sat through the eleven innings of tho
contest between tho Plttaburp and
Chicago teams of the National league
The president assisted at the dedi
cation of a fountain in Arsenal park
attended a business meeting of the
Associated Western Yale clubs sad
luncheon at Sowlckloy Heights four
teen miles out of tho pity and tonight
was tho principal speaker at the ban
quet that brought to a close the an
nual sessions of tho Western Yale
clubs
Tho ball game was a departure from I
the original program which caused
some disappointment to the Yale men
but which brought Joy to the 15000
I Plttsburg fans
With tho president wore Secretary
Knox a staunch supporter of the
Plttsburg team and Charles P Taft
principal owner of tho Chicago team
Consequently the chief executive was
torn by conflicting emotions He
wanted both teams to win and was
happiest when the score was a tie
Secretary Knox and the presidents
brother had great tun In wagering on
the contest and appealed in turn for
tho presidents support
No sir replied the president I
insist upon maintaining a Judicial at
titude on this matter
ThQ presidents assistance to tho
Plttsburg rooters In tho seventh in
ning the local lteam tying the score
With the scoro still tied at the end of
the eighth ho said
I hope It goes beyond the ninth
then we will get more for our money
It was suggested to the president
that if he remained for the finish ho I
would be late for IA banquet He re
plied he could get a dinner most any
old tlmobut seldom could see a
better game
The president made his debut on
the diamond at the Allegheny Country
club Two teania of resident and visit
Ing Yale alumni wero matched in a
I ball game and the president pitched
the first two balls for the visitors Ho
had little or no speed and no control
but was taken out of tho box before
much damage was done
The two balls the president threw
hit the home base and hit tho catcher
on the first bounce
Tho presidents first public appear
ance was at the Rodeph Shalom Jew
ish tabernacle where he spoke briefly
Next there was a quick automobile
trip to Arsenal park and another short
address
Following this came the meeting of
the Yale clubs where tho president
paid a tribute to Ynln and tithe Yale
spirit Tho president was then es
corted to Union station where he took
a special train to Sowlckly all the
Yale visitors accompanying him Then
camo the baseball games the return
to town end the banquet tonight
At tonights Yale banquet Mr Taft
highly praised Theodore Roosevelt
Most of his speech however was de
I voted to eulogizing Yale He said
The Yale spirit is vory elastic and
capable of spreading itself oydrrlncJ
informing a great many other Inetl
lullons and what I feel Is that every
university and every college In this
country has In Its heart a dcslie to
omulato that which It recognizes as
the Yale spirit and to make it as
well It may a part of lib own lnntruc
lion
Now the late president was a Har
vard man Ho said that ho had never
undertaken any great work in his
great career that he had not found a
Yale man behind him to help him on
And what I wish to Bay of Theodore
Roosevelt I know and thOBo within
tho sound of my voice who came
close to him know it as well as I do
that he Imbued into the government
at Washington that spirit which we
call the Yalo spirit on tho one hand
and which you may call on the oth
er the universal spirit of America
and that he put Into the hearts of I
all the college meen of Amrlca a
desire to lend themselves to public
service and to elevate tho politics of
this country And I am glad to bo I
able to testify that that result of his
administration Is a prominent element
In llfo In Washington and In the poli
tics of the United Stales I havo not
counted up what the college complex
Ion of Mr Roosevolls cabinet was
I can only say that In tho present
cabinet there are two Harvard men
and two Yale men counting Brother
Knox as ono of the most recunt but
one of the most valuable acquisitions
that Yalo has made
I Und it difficult to express tho
feeling of gratitude that you have
that you were permitted to live under
lie elms of dear oM Yale and look to
her UB your alma mater

GERMAN ATTITUDE
IS DENOUNCED
r
t
Efforts to Influence American
Tariff Legislation Declared to
Be Impertinent
Anonymouc Information as to Wages
Paid German Workmen Not Ap
proved by Senator Aldrich
Washington May 29 Senator Ald
rich announced as Impertinent the
efforts of the German government to
Influence American thrift legislation
by supplying anonymous Information
as to wages paid German workmen
His characterization followed a state
ment by Senator Depew Intimating
that German manufactuiors were
striving to Influence congress through
the German government and Ameri
can Importers of Gorman goods
The reply of the President to a
senate resolution calling for a state
ment of tho German government as to
wages In Germany proved the signal
for this animated discussion as soon
ltR the senate assembled today Tho
President stated In his message that
tho document In question had been
sent to tho finance committee on
April 13
Senator Nelson going to the desk
of the vicepresident took the Presl
dents brief message and as he held
It In his hand asked that the state
ment referred to be printed as a sen
ato document rm
1 am surprised said Mr Nelson
that tho finance committee has with
held that report
I have made some investigation as
to tho character of that report re
plied Mr Aldrich and I find that It
consists of statements by certain
boards of trade of Germany trans
mitting anonymous testimony manu
facturers In answer to statements
made before a committee congress
J am quite willing that this document
should ho prlntQl
Mr Depew spoke of the importance
of the business before congress and
asserted that It was purely an Amcrl
can question Yet he said we
find that foreign governments arc en
tering the senate chamber for the ob
struction of legislation for which the
President has called an extra ses
sion
Continuing lheiv YoVU vScnalor
said
saidI
I am told that Prince von Buelow
has sent to this government an an
onymous statement so In detail that
It has gono even Into the question of
raors >
Nothing on the record he said
shows whht tho ambassador asked
for T am not saying something
harsh I would say the attempt on the
part of any government or of a manu
facturer of any government to In
fluence legislation of congress In this
way Is to say the least Impertinent
Further discussion with relerenco
to this report said Mr Carter relinquishing
I
linquishing tho floor and smiling
I may well be postponed until tho
document itself is printed
The President message was re
ferred to tho committee on finance
Mr Aldrich remarking that he would
have tho German report translated at
once and printed
