BILL GOES THROUGH SENATE
WHEN DEMOCRATS AND IN
GOES TO THE HOUSE FOR CONFERENCE
Compromise Act, Offered by La Fol-
lettte, Reduces Existing Duties on
Wool and Manufacturers of
Wool About 33 Per cent.
Washington, D. C By uniting with
the Insurgents tho senate Demo
crats forced through tho senate a com
promise wool bill, offered by Senator
La Follotte, reducing existing duties
on wool and manufactures of wool
about 33 por cent. This bill will be
Bent to tho houso for conference.
Thero will have to bo a further re
duction in duties beforo the house
will accept tho bill. Senator La Pol
lotto said ho expected further reduc
tion beforo an agreement could bo
Tho compromiso wool bill passed
the scnato by a vote of 48 to 32.
Every Domocrat voted for It and these
Republicans : Bourne, Brlstow,
Brown, Clapp, Crawford, Cummins,
Gronna, Kenyon, La Follette, McCum
ber, Nelson, Polndexter and Works.
Senators Borah and Dixon, who have
been working with tho progressives,
opposed tho bill, but tholr defection
was mado up by Senators Nelson and
McCumbcr, regulars, who joined with
the Democrats In passing tho bill.
Tho bill changes the system of as
sessing duties from specific to ad
valorem. It provides for a 35 per
cent, duty on raw wool, 52 per cent, on
clothes and 35 per cent, on carpets.
The present duty on raw wool is about
42 per cent. Tho houso bill cut the
duty on raw wool to 20 per cent.
Chairman Underwood of tho ways
and means committee and Democratic
house leader said: "The houso will
not accept the wool rovision bill as it
has passed the senate. Personally I
believe the duties carried in It exces
sively high. Wo will send It to con
ference after tho cotton revision bill
passes tho house. What can bo done
In conference, of course, I ennnot
say, but tho houso conferees will hold
out for reduction In the duties. I
want to see a bill passed reducing the
wool duties and I want to see such a
bill sent to the president. I would
prefer that the house bill be sent,
hut If this is not possible, then any
bill making material reductions in
duties should be passed."

New York City. Four persons were
taken into custody by tho police
In connection with tho murder of Wil
liam Henry Jackson at the Hotel Iro

ment and member of the New York
Yacht club, was murdered In his apart
ment in the. Iroquois hotel.
Tho murderer left behind a coarse
handkerchief, stained with bjood. Sev
eral well defined Imprints of fingers
were found upon It and in the bath
room. The bed upon which the broker
fought for his life was marked with
tho' crimson prints of his slayer's
hands and these, too, were caught by
tho camera to strengthen the net
which the police say they are casting
nhout the murderer. Although Mr.
Jackson was beaten with a blackjack
after he had been choked, death waB
directly duo to tho coarso towel
stuffed In his mouth which caused
strangulation as revealed by tho au
topsy. Geidel in his statement admits
his guilt, but says he did not intend

EIGHT DIE WHEN TRAIHS CRASH
Scores Injured as Excursion Special
Dashes Into Regular at Small
Maine Town. ,
Bangor, Me. Eight persons aro re
ported killed in a headon collision at
Grindstone between a crowded excur
sion train on the Bangor & Aroostook
road and the midnight train from Van
Buron to Bangor. Between 30 and 40
people aro known to have been hurt.
F. W. Garcelon of Bangor, engineer
of the excursion train, wns Instantly
killed. Engineer Will Orr, of the
other train, was badly Injured. Dr.
Hugh Pikes of Presque Isle, a mem
ber of a band that accompanied the
excursionists, was among the killed
and J. R. Blllington, a mail clerk on
No. 511, was badly hurt. Both fire
men are missing. Among those re
ported killed are: Frank Feeley, son
of a bank cashier of Presque Isle;
Harry Clark of Presque Isle, and Clark
Roomer of Washburn.
As soon as Engineer Orr saw that
the collision was Inevitable he threw
on the emergency brakes and this
lessened tho shock. Train No. 511
was made up of an engine and six
cars, an express and mall and smoker,
two passengers and a Pullman. The
express and mall cars which were at
the front of the train were tho worst
damaged. The collision took place
just outside the Grindstone station,
seven miles north of Millinocket. Tho
two trains met head-on as a result of
confusion of orders.
RETURNS FEE FOR PRAYER
Methodist Minister Sends Back Check
Sent Him by Wisconsin Senate
for Asking "Favor of Lord."
Madison, Wis. Rev. A. L. Tull,
a retired Methodist minister has
lost faith in the Wisconsin legislature
and has returned tho check for $3
which ho was paid for delivering a
prayer In the senate, with a lettetr
to State Treasurer Dahl, reading as
follows: "I received your check for
?3 for delivering a prayer In' tho sen

tho courtesy, but return it. It would
bo purely commercialism to accept ?3
from the senate for asking the favor

tho ?G72 paid for prayer during this
session was lost money. As tho legis
lature did such 'rotten' business on
nil temperanco measures, It indicates
that not a single prayer reached tho
Lord for the promotion of temperanco,
but that Ho favored tho brewers and

"S. O. S." BRINGS TIMELY ASSIST
ANCE TO DISABLED CANA
WARSHIP AND CREW ARE RESCUED
Boat Goes on Ledges, Tearing Gaping
Hole In Her Hull, but Is Finally
Floated When Appeal
Halifax, N. S. Aftor five tenso
hours on the ledges, ten miles
at sea off Capo Sable, on tho west
coast of Nova Scotia, with a gaping
hole Jn her hull and holding four
feet of water, tho Canndlan cruiser
Nlobo floated off with the assistance
of tugs nnd is anchored in Shag Har
bor. That tho warship and her crew
of several hundred men woro finally
rescued is duo to her w-Jroless opera
tor, who stuck to his post throughout
and flashed "S. O. S." Incessantly
while the crews manning tho pumps
in what almost proved to bo a vain
attempt to check tho Inrush of water.
Tho Nlobo crashed on tho ledges
in a thick fog and a heavy sea. All
tho men were In their hammocks at
tho time and most of them wcro
thrown to tho deck by tho impact.
There was confusion, but only for a
moment. Blasts from tho trumpet
brought every man to deck with tho
exection of the engineers and firemen.
Tho lashings of the Hfo boats were
quickly cut away and tho boats were
made ready for launching. Signals
from the engine room told of the in
rush of water below and Commander
MacDonald turned to tho hole in tho
hull. There was no timo to place
tho collision mats over the opening,
but tho water tight compartments
were quickly closed. Engineers sig
nalled that they were working In
water up to their waists and were
told to leave their posts. All this time
the "S. O. S." was being flashed from
tho wireless room and tho small can
non on the main deck was being fired
as a signal to any ships coming to
the assistance of the Nlobe, notifying
them of her position. The Cnpo Sable
station was the first to pick up the
wireless call and it sent it on to Cape
Race, from where tho distress signal
was sent broadcast. It reached the
American coast, being picked up first
at Wellfleet, Mass., and later at New
York. In less than two hours, half
a dozen steamers were racing to the
assistance of tho stranded cruiser.
Two of the Nlobe's boats, each
manned by eight men, were launched
for tho purpose of ascertaining her
exact position and surroundings. Af
ter circling tho vessel the small craft
became lost to sight in the darkness
and it was feared that they had been
capsized by the high wind and heavy
sea. The 16 men had long been given
up for lost when, eight hours after
thoy put off, they were brought back
to the cruiser by a tug which had
found them almost ready to surrender
in a thrilling battle for life. One of
their boats was so badly battered that
it had to be abandoned. The port
engine was started for the final effort
to leave tho precarious position and
shortly after 6 o'clock, though handi
capped by a falling tide, the big ship
tore herself off the pinnacle of rock.
Mighty cheers went up from the jack
tars as the cruiser headed to sea and
dropped anchor clear of the ledges.

Dannemora, N. Y, Charles !.
Green, an Albany county farmer,
was electrocuted at Clinton prlBon for
tho murdor of his daughter, a girl of
14, on a farm near Now Scotland, a
year ago. Tho electrocution had been
twice stayed by Govornor Dlx against
tho wishes of tho condomed man, who
told his counsel thai ho wanted to
die. A confession by Green's wlfo
that hor unfaithfulness had led to tho
shooting failed to save him. Green

1910, on tho farm of William Vadnoy,
an uncle of Mrs. Green, whore she had

and asked his wlfo to return home.
When she refused ho went for a shot

Green fled nnd later shot himself. Ho
was found In a lonely houso by tho
sheriff and a posse where ho had
crawled "Goodby" on an empty cart
ridge box. His wound was not seri
ous and his conviction followed. After
Mrs. Green's recovery she mado an af
fidavit that she had ben unfaithful to
her husband and that this had caused
tho shooting. Mrs. Green stated that
it was not until a few days before
tho murder that her infidelity becamo
known to her husband. In opposing
tho application, tho district attorney
declared that those facts had been
known by both sides during tho trial,
although It was not brought out. It
developed that Green had told his wife
that "under no circumstances should
sho give this Information on the wit
ness stand, saying he would rather go
to the electric chair than to have it
known. He never admitted that sho
told the truth about her misdeeds.
