C., June 30.—Char acterizing the Canadian reciprocity agreement as a ''severe and unwar ranted blow at the agricultural inter ests of our country," Senator Gamble of South Dakcta continued in the sen rte today the attack on the measure, •which was begun by insurgent sena tors. Senator Gamble declared that he fe-t it necessary to oppose and vote rprinst the reciprocity measure as it row stood. He said he would favor j"^oiprof'ity with Canada that was 1 r*?od on justice and equal treatment to Hi interests. "The measure proposed," said Sena tor Gamble, "is unjust, unfair, unre j~nHjrnn ^nd is in violation of the de r'-r^d nnd settled policy of the party It mere than a generation. It means 1 a rerious blow to the American j-"-Tver which places him in unequal —i upffr comnet.ition with his Cana f-n rival without any fair or just compensation."

In this re spect he is practically helpless to pro tect himself by combination or other wise. said Senator Gamble, to save himself from the general onslaught. The bill, he said gave advantage to the manufacturing interest and would seriously depress the value of farm lands in this country. "Can it be expected" he added, that the agriculturists will sustain the party tinder a policy which must nec essarily depreciate the value of his holdings, make unremtmerative his employment, lessen the price of things he has to sell and plare him in compe tition with foreign -people whose pro duction is from cheaper lands and at lower costs Cummins Continues Argument. Senator Cummins continued his argument against the Canadian reci procity bill in the senate yesterday afternoon, but did not conclude. He attacked the measure from the stand point not only of its alleged injustice and political inexpediency but on the ground that it was not properly drawn as a tariff law. If passed in its pres ent form. Senator Cummins declared, the agreement. would give Canada the option of recognizing one-half of it without accepting all. This state ment. explained in detail by the Iowa senator, drew the attention of the sen ate, many members questioning the Interpretation thus put upon the bill hi as sent to congress by the president. Warns of Party Peril. Senator Cummins declared the pas sage of the bill would be followed by a storm of disapproval against which the republican party could not stand. He said it would be accepted by the agricultural interests as notice that congress had determined that they were not entitled to the same consider ation at its hands that is given to the other producers of the land. Senator Cummins declared he be lieved in tariff revision. "But "mark my words," he said, "the people of this country will know who is responsible for putting the farmer into free and unlimited competition in what he sells, while still protecting the things that he buys."

New London, Conn., June 30.— Cheering thouBtands say Yale and Harvard break even in the two races on the Thames river today prelimin ary to the great 'varsity eights' strug gle. The blue oarsmen pulled out a victory in the freshmen eights, by a superb spurt in the last half mile, while the Harvard sub-varsity fours, leading from the start, defeated Yale by two lengths. Both races were well rowed, but a contrary wind and a slack tide made the time slow in each race. Official time of the freshman race: Yale, 11:53 Harvard, 11:59%. Official time of the varsity fours: Harvard, 13:37 Yale, 13:52. While the four-oared race was al ways in Harvard's command the fresh man race was a good struggle and full of excitement. Although last in order for the days' program, the first in importance is the varsity eight-oared contest. The bet ting favored the crimson oarsmen, among the hotels and along the water front this forenoon and the odds, which were ten to nine on Harvard increased to ten to six before ten o'clock today. No one could give a definite reason for this confidence in the crimson crew, but it was noted that there was comparitively little Yale money in sight. The river was filled with yachts, all gaily decked with flags and bunting, the spectacle they afforded being one of the most attractive that has been seen here in many years. Anchored up the east side were the three white garbed revenue cutters and the derelict destroyer Senecfi, on whieh Captain^ P-. •».*-•-Ubarrotlt,- the commander of the squadron, gave his orders to the flotilla of small boats assigned for patrol duty. The Freshman Eighths. The freshmen oarsmen stepped into their shells from the two launches John Harvard and Elihu Yale, and at 10:40 o'clock were ready for the sig nal. After the crews got near the starting mark, just under the bridge, the Yale crew protested against starting the race on account of the strong wind and water. Harvard wanted to row at once but consented to a delay until 11:30 o'clock. The starting pistol sent the fresh men away on their mile struggle at 11:26 o'clock. In the first dozeif strokes Harvard pulled out one length in the lead, but Yale came up strong. Yale won the freshmen eights race by two lengths. The official time of the freshmen race was: Yale 11:53 Har vard 11:59%. Varsity Substitute Fours. After the cheers from boats and shore tha£ greeted the freshmen crews at the finish, had subsided, the varsity substitute fours lined up for their two mile stretch still farther up the river, with the rowing conditions in good shape. It took some little time to get the fours into position but at li:53 the pistol shot sent them away. Har vard jumped into the lead at the start by half a length but Yale quickly drew up almost on even terms. Harvard won the varsity substitute fours race by three lengths. The of ficial time of the fours race was: Harvard 13:37% Yane 14: 52. BANK EXCHANGES SHOW DECREASE Great Change Since Last Week Re ported by Dun's Agency Chi cago and New York Lose. New York.

C.,' June 30.—EdwsitfJ Hines of Chicago was subjected today to a rigid cross examination by John H. Marble, attorney for tjie senate In vestigating committee. Mr. Hines contradicted the sworn testimony by President Herman H. K. Hetler of the Hetler Lumber oonpmf1 of Chicago, that Hines bad boaeted to him of having personally elected Lorimer. He denied that the lumber interests raised a big sum to lobby for1 tariff legislation in 1909, or that tb* lumber interests had anything to do with the Lorimer election.
