Washington, June 3.—Without a word of debate, without a dissenting vote, the house of representatives Sat urday agreed to the conference report on the Borah-Jones three-year home stead bill and it was signed by Speak er Champ Clark. As soon as it is signed by the vice-president it will go to the White house for President Taft's approval and the general ex pectation is that the bill will become a law before the end of next week. It is customary for the president to refer all public land bills to the sec retary of the interior before signing and this course probably will be taken with the three-year bill, but that is not likely. The action of the House was ac complished without any friction, those in charge of the bill waiting until its opponents were out of the hall before calling it up. Five minutes after the conference report was read it had been approved by the House without a roll call. Half an hour later some who intended opposing adoption of the con ference report returned, to find it was too late. Homesteads on Projects. If this session of Congress lasts long enough Senator Borah will en deavor to get through the House his bill directing the patenting of home steads on government Irrigation pro jects as soon as entrymen comply with the homestead law. This bill has passed the Senate, but haB not been reported by the House commit' tee. If enacted, homesteaders on gov ernment projects can get a patent in three years, instead of waiting 10 years, as is at present required. President Will Sign Bill. Washington, D. C., June 6.—Presi dent Taft today assured Senator War ren that the three-year homestead bill would receive his signature without delay. TAFT SECURES INITIAL VICTORY Chicago.

According to current rumor here this morning Taft leaders planned to use their claimed majority of the seated Taft delegates in nearly all of the many contests. Nathan B. Scott, West Virginia's com mitteeman. sent his proxy to Harry New, chairman of the subcommittee on arrangements, who will determine who will hold it. After counting the ballots today it was found that Miss Emma Howard was the winner of the first special prize, a $10.00 voile skirt, offered by Condon & Co. for the largest num ber of votes cast in two weeks.

WE DON'T KNOW— j NOBODY KNOWS—YOU DON'T ! KNOW-ALL WE KNOW IS THAT I EVERY CONTESTANT IS GOING | TO GET A SQUARE DEAL, AND IF THEY WIN IT WILL BE BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN EFFORTS OR THE WORK OF THEIR FRIENDS.
