The women own the houses, tho wife receives the newly married husband Into her homo; tho children lelong to her clan and receive her clan name. She Is considered the owner of nil household goods, food supplies and other possessions of tho family. The men perform all out side and field labor, cut and carry the wood for fuel, attend to the livestock, and see that the wants of their wives and children are provided for, In civilized communities this would nil h considered a matter of course, hit among the Ameri can Indians It 1b nowhere porallcled. This Is by no menns all that Is expected of tho Hopl husbandB. They must shear the sheep, card the wool, nnd weave blankets. belts, ceremonial robes, and even dresses and shawls for tho women. On occasion they must even mind the bahles and help with the housework.

BURLINGTON, YT, BECKER PUT IN THE TOMBS ON A CHARGE OF MURDER Sensational Developments in the Rosenthal Case Come with a Rush after Conference with Gangsters Who May Have "Squealed". New York, July 29. Sensational devel opments In the Investigation of tho mur der of Herman Rosenthal, tho gambler who was shot down In front of the Ho tel Metropolo two weeks ago, came with a rush to-night when Pollen Lieutenant Charles Decker, accused by Rosenthal us his side partner In a gambling gamo, was ari'LSttd, accused of participation In tho killing and forced to plead at once to a charge, of murder In the first degree. Becker was arraigned before Judge Mul quern, who had convened the court of general sei-stons at night for the purpose, r.nd pleaded not guilty. He was remand ed to the Tombs. Tho nrrest of Becker came as a sequel to the summoning together of the grand Jury late to-night, a conference between District Attorney Whltmnn and Harry Vnllon, "Brldgle" Webb-r and Jack Rose, three of the men under arrest In connec tion with the case, and their attorneys nnd the uppearance of several other wit nesses before the grand Jury. Becker was ai rested at the Bathgate avenue pollco station In the Bronx, whore ho has been on duty on a charge of extortion. At the time no Inkling of the more serious charge to be placed against him was given. Meanwhile the grand Jury, which was then In session, had voted the murder In dictment. The police lieutenant, who had been suspended by Commissioner Waldo after his arrest, was hurried before Judge Mulnueen and through his attorney en tered the plea of not guilty. Events leading to Becker's arrest be gan to s inpe thems-clvcs late this after noon following the preliminary hearing of revornl of the men under arrest before the coroner. Sam Paul, leader or an Fast Fide orrnnlatlon. nt who'-c recent outing It Is claimed Rosenthal's killing was first discussed, was discharged. The, others woie. held for a continued hearing. With their attorneys, Vallo Webber and Roic we e taken to the district attor ney's office ready tfl teHtlfy before the grand Jury. Messengers were at once des patched for members of the grand Jury and the first night session of that body held within 1) years was soon In progress.

Montreal, July 28. The Canadian Pacific railway steamship Kmpress of Britain, outward bound, collided with the collier Helvetia In a deni-e fog In the St. Law rence estttnry late yesterday afternoon, according to advices received here to-day. The collier sank hut Its crew was rescued. Tho Kmpress of Britain was i-o badly damaged that tho steamer turned back for Quebec, where she is expected to arrive late to-night. The Kmpress of Britain snlled from Queboc Friday evening with "30 pas- sengers for Kurope. The Helvetia was bound from Sydney for Montreal with a cargo of R.OOO tons of coal. The collision occurred nbout 10 miles west of Fame Point. Que., a lighthouse station on the southern shore of tho St, Lawrence river near the point where It empties Into the Gulf of Kt. Lawrence. This Is approximately 300 miles from Quebec. Although the accident occurred at 4:45 o'clock yesterday afternoon, defi nite news of It was not received until to-day when Cnptaln Murray reported to the, authorities there and at Que bec that his vessol wos badly stove In nt tho hows nnd her fore compartments filled with water, but ho believed that tho vessel was In no danger of sink ing. AsBlstnnce was despatched to her, however, Tho wrecking steamer Lord Stratchcona and tho Canadian HOUSE IT ODDS WITH THE SENATE Flatly Rejects Tariff Measures and Does Not Ask for Conference. Washington, July 30 With machine like precision, the democratic House to-day forced over all opposition three tariff measures back upon tho Senate. They were the wool and sugar tariff revision bills and the excise tax bill and all were sent back with nono of the Senate's amendments accepted, On the wool hill no conference whs asked. Tho House left it flatly to the Senate whether that branch desired to pursue the legislation further. Tho wool tariff revision bill was tho first taken up In tho House to-day. There was virtually no debate, except a statement by Majority Liadfr I'ndrr wood and a shoit leply by Bepresenm live Payne of New York. Motions by Mr. Pnyne and Ilcprcscntatlva Cntm pucker of mdluim to conour In the Hun- wero the principal witnesses hoard. Pa trolman Brady and Patrolman File, who were near the scene of tho murder, also testified. Preceding tho henrlng District Attorney Whitman, when asked if he ex pected tho prisoners to tell tho grand Jury what they knew of the murder, re plied: "I hopo so." He then went Into con ference with Judge Mulqueen to arrange for the night session of court. It was close to midnight when Beckor was brought Into court. Ho held his head erect nnd showed little or no concern. A clerk nnnounced; "Charles Becker, you are charged with murder In the first degree. Do you de mand a trial? Aro you guilty or not guilty?" John W. Hart, who appeared as Beck er's counsel, asked for tlmo to confer with his client, saying ho had not seen Becker to-day and knew nothing of tins detnlls of the charge. Hu demanded 10 days In which to prepare his plea. To this Judge Mulqueen demurred. He sug gested that a plea of not guilty be on terel nt once, saying that If at the end of a week the attorney wished to change the plea ho was sure any court would grant permission. Becker was then remanded to the Tombs where ho was locked up for the night. Attorney Hart accompanied him to th prison nnd remained In conference wjth his client 20 minute. When nsktd if he had any statement to make, after leav ing Becker, Mr. Hart replied: "No. There Is nothing to ray at this lime. My client pleaded not guilty. He does not know who his accusers are nor anything concerning the Indictment. There will be nothing to say lo-nlgbt." Following Becker's arrest and nrralsn inent various rumors weie afloat about the criminal courts building of confes sions reported to hae been made hy Rose, Webber and Vnllon. The secrecy thrown I'bout the grand Jury proceedings, however, prevented confirmation of such reports. That the statements made by these witnesses before the cr.ind jury al so dealt with the general gambling situa tion In the city, was another report current. Pacific tug Cruiser both hastened to meet her. It Is understood that the Kmpress of Britain struck tho Helvetia amidships, cutting the collier so,uarely in two. Tho smaller vessel sank almost Im mediately but there was quick work aboard tho liner and rescue of all hands was speedily affected. The pas sengers on tho steamer were fright ened by the shock of the collision anil many of them rushed to the deck in great fear, but a serious panic was averted. At live o'clock this afternoon the dam aged liner bail reach Father Point, mak ing but slow progicss up the St. Law rence. The Allen line steamer 1'retoriun was standing by at that hour, and some of the passengers nnd tho malls were be ing transferred to that vessel, Tho Kmpress of Britain i.s a twin ship to the l'impre.-s of Ireland, theso being the largest vc-scls of tho Canadian Paci fic railway licet of ocean liners. She Is one of the few vessels of such draft that they are unable to come up the river as far a Montreal, She Is of H.H9 tons gro.s register, nnd was built In Glasgow n Hfi, The collier Helvetia which was sunk In tho collision was practically a new vessel. She was built only a yenr ago at Newcas tle, .TO feet In length nnd of 1,07." tons reg ister, designed for tho St. Lawrence coal trade. She mado Liverpool iter homo port. ate nmennnents were voted down, 159 to 7S and 172 to Ml. The last named voto au tomatically rejeet"d tho Senate changes. Mr. Underwood next called up the exciso tnx measure, Hu charged the Scnntu with having sought to kill the measure by lacking on as amendments the repeal of Canadian reciprocity and u provision for the continuation of the tat iff board. Tho Canadian reciprocity amendment was lost l-T to 107, while that providing for the tariff board met tho snmo fato, 130 to 9S. On this measure Mr. Underwood asked that the Senato bo asked to confer with tho House. Speaker Clark accordingly named as conferees for tho Houso Repre sentatives I'nderwood of Alabama, Hull of Tennessee, Palmer of Pennsylvania, Tayne of New iork and MoCall of Massa chusetts. The House "free sugar" bill was reach ed last. As omended by the Senate the measure provided for a retention of l.fiO on sugar, a reduction of 3o cents a hundrnd pounds from the existing rate, The House voted for a conference. 141 to 84. The speaker then nnmcd ns man agers for the House In the conference, Representatives Underwood, Harrison of New York, Kltchln of North Carolina, Payne of New York nnd McCall of Massa chusetts.

TUFT NOMINATION FREE FROM FRAUD Statement from White House Re. views Each Contest at the Chicago Convention. Washington, July 28. A statement, ap proved by President Tnft, defending ht nomination by the Chicago convention, was made public at tho Whlto House to day. It reviews every contest before the tcpuhllcnn nntlonnl commltteo and the credentials committee of tho convention nnd asserts that each contest was set tled loglcnlly, upon Its merits. Tho state ment was submitted to tho cabinet at a recent meeting nnd received tho npprovnl of tho President's official family. The statement, which Is n lengthy docu ment of 144 printed pages, Is a detailed denial of tho charge that tho renomlnn tlon of President Tnft was accomplished by tho seating of fraudulently elected delegates to the convention. It takes up Individually tho contests Instituted by the Roosevelt forces against Taft dele gates who were seated, and presents evi dence in each of theso coses to show that the Taft delegates wero regularly elected. A resume of tho statement, prepared by Charles D, Hllles, formerly President Toft's secrctaiy and now chairman of tho republican natlonnl committee, takes up each contest briefly. This resume opens with the declaration that the Roosevelt contests, ns original ly filed before the national committee, were not Instituted In good faith. "The total number of delegates sum moned to the convention," says the resume, "was 1,078, with 510 necessary to a choice. Mr. Taft had Ml votes on the first nnd only ballot and was de clared tb,. nominee. There wero Institut ed against 2P.S of the delegates regularly elected for Taft. contests on behalf of Roosevelt. These contests were avowedly Instigated not for the purpose of really ' securing seats In the ennvenllon, not for' the purpose of adducing evidence which would lead any respectable court to en- tei taln the contests, but l'or the purpose ' of deceiving the public Into thu belief i that Roosevelt had more votes than he ! really had, as the conventions and prim- ! aries were in progress ror the selec tion of j delegates. Tho two hundred nnd thlrtv- I eight (cnte-us were iiiluced bv abandon- j mi nt, lnimal or In subotance, to 74. Tlu , ve.-y fact of these Kj frivolous contest'. Itself icfcis upon the genuineness and1 validity of the remainder." 1 The rcMime Hun enumerates the contest-, and reviews the arguments In eae i case. The levltnv of the evidence In t h contests embiaced In tho White llou-e statenii.nt Is certified to l.y Victor Ro-e-water, chairman of the national commit- , tre, and Thomas 11. Devlno, chairman of, the credentials committee. As an appen- 1 dlx, the statement carries In detail the' vote In the national committee on each ' of the context.-, and a stntement of the dates of the Taft and Roosevelt conveti t.nns in cont. -Ued States. The object of, the latter Is to show that the itoo.-evclt dile;..ite. were ehosen -liter tile regtilir' conventions had named Taft represent,!- ! t ve.. Another appendix Is the repoi t of the ' r. leu l:i Is committee to the "onventlon, ' in which thu statement i.-sucd by the' Room'vcU committeemen .itt icklng the I in 'jurlty of 11. c committee wac answered. ! In dixcuxMm,- the cnarge, the report said: "The J-.I.HI uient as a whole In Its In- I slniiiitlons of lomhtimtlon of unworthy I motive, In Its itcital of allege I facts,! Is gro: sly an l maliciously untrue, It I wan in!cn,lcl to convey the Impression' t: it the time for hearing eases was ( so limited as to prevent their being , pioperiy presented to the commltteo. ' The unti uthfultuss of this statement Is clearly .shown hy the reiords of the committee and the new-.spaper reports ( of Its deliberations. Not only did t.ie rules make liberal provision for tinio I in presenting me caes, nut in every instnnco where the parties presenting the cases, or any members of the tom mlttee, asked for an extension of time, it was grantel." The statement of the Roosevelt members of tho committee asserted that the speed with which tho cre dentials committee brought In re-ports "made It as Ident that the reports hit 1 boon prepare 1 beforehand." In reply to this statement, the appenjlx to tho Whlto House stati mcnt snl.l: "In regard to the assertion that re ports were prepared in tuh.ince of the action of tho committee on cre dentials. n one of the gentlemen who makes this statement will state of his own personal knowledge that any re ports were thus made." In concluding, the majority of the cre dentials committee, defending Its decision, aid: "As to the merits of these contested cases upon which the commltteo passed It .should bo leinemhered that the natlonnl committee sat for 15 days hearing evidence and aiguinent upo,. them. Out of a total membership of 53 only 13 members of that commltteo objected to tho findings and de cisions and they only with regard to a part of the cases, thu action of tho com mltteo having been unnnlmou, with re gard to a majority of them. Tho conven tion declined, by a substantial majority, ti reverse the action nf the national com mltteo, nnd It referred tho contested casos to tho commltteo on credentials. When our commltteo met, rulow weie adopted by uniinlmuuls vote. No one desiring to nuiko complaint ns to the seating of any delegate) was prevented from presenting his case. Tho committee even considered rases which had been decided hy a unani mous voto of tho national committee, no tably tho Indiana case. "The commltteo on credentials of the republican national convention consists of 53 members. The commltteo In every case sustained the derision of the na tlonnl committee, nnd In no case by ma jorities of less than two. thirds. This statement of facts, endotsed by 10 mem bers of the committee, who listened pa llet, tly through nil-day and all-night ses sions to evidence nnd argument In or der to be able to Judgo cases Intelligently and pass upon thim honestly, should bo a sufficient answci to the icckless, un warranted and untruthful assertions con tallied In the statement signed by all membeis of the committee, two of whom did not attond hesslons of tho commit tee, did not hear any of the evidence pre sented, and nearly all of whom Indi cated theli bias by voting In every case for tho delegates known to lie favorable to Mr, Roosevelt, Including numerous cases In which the action of tho national committee had been unanimous for the Tnft delegates."
