Soon after he was re leased he was convicted of robbing and sent to Folsom prison for SO years. A roan named jioss, who had been the principal witness for the prosecution, later was himself sent to prison. Op penheimer met him at the gate and murdered him. Sentence Leaa-thened for Life. For that crime Oppenheimer's sen ttnee was lengthened to life Impris onment and he was transferred to San Viuentin. There he attacked a. guard and later a fellow prisoner and lor the latter assault he was sentenced u. death under California's law enacted in 1907. making an attack by a con vict on a guard or fellow prisoner a capital offence.

FOR JOT Democrats Have Been "Work infoh Measure For Three Months and Four Days. CHAMP CLARK IS NOT QUIZZED BY PROBERS WASHINGTON, D. C-, July 11. The senate may now proceed to the business for which presi dent Wilson called the extra session of congress revision of the tariff. Today, three months and four days after the special session began, chair man Simmons, of the finance commit tee, was authorised to report the Underwood-Simmons tariff bill. The mea sure was passed upon in committee by a strict party vote, the Republicans voting against it. May Repeal Reciprocity. That the provision of the 'tariff bill levying a duty of 12 percent ad valorem on print paper valued at more than 2 1-2 cents a pound and not more than 4 cents a pound, may repeal a portion of the Canadian reciprocity act of 1911, is contended in the analysis of the measure prepared under direction of senator Smoot Republican member of the finance committee. Besides the duty of 12 percent ad valorem, the Democratic bill would im pose a countervailing tax in retaliation for export license fee or other charges imposed by a foreign country. "An interesting point to consider," the Smoot analysis sets forth, "is the effect of the enactment of this paragraph on the portion of the Canadian reciprocity act wnicn enters free or duty paper im ported from Canada valued at not more than four cents pej- pound. With respect to printing paper valued at more than 2 l-2c and not more than 4 cents per pound, it is manifest that there is a complete repugnance between the two statutes, for under tho act of 1911, it is free of duty, and by the terms of the tariff bill, it is subject to a duty of 12 percent ad valorem." Republican leaders will make a point of this on the floor of the senate. Mere Evidence in Lobby Probe. When the senate lobby committee met today. Winthrop Larvin. secretary of the National association of Man ufacturers, put in a synopsis showing the laws of the association. He was questioned about a special $20,000 fund raised several years ago. He said he had no record of how that fund was collected or disbursed. William Whitman, former president of the association, then explained a $5000 gift made to S. N. D. North, sec retary of the association in 1897 and a clerk to majority members of the senate finance committee. The gift was made after the Dingley bill had passed congress. Speaker Clark Ten If Jew. Speaker Clark made a statement re lating to the use of Ms name by David Lamar and Edward Lauterbach. He testified he had never had anything to do with Lamar, Lauterbach or any of the men mentioned by them. J. P. Morgan, he said, he saw at a gridiron dinner in Washington several years ago, at which former president Roosevelt and former senator Foraker engaged in a joint debate. "It was the hottest debate ever heard in this country," said the speaker. Speaker Clark put in this statement: "Ledyard says that Lauterbach told him that he was in communication with me through senator Stone. Lau terbach, who acknowledged' on the wit ness stand that he had lied, said that Lamar gave him the information. La mar confessed the whole tale was a lie to force Morgan and company to take Lauterbach back into their em ploy. All of them disclaim any ac quaintance or communication with me. "Senator Stone Justly criticised the i Lamar-Lauterbach tale as a lie. in which he was entirely correct. He and I never in our lives conversed about 'or in any way mentioned to each other Morgan and company or the steel trust investigation. Sever Spoke to J. P. Morgan. "I never spoke to J. Pierpont Mor gan or any member of his firm in my life; never communicated with him or tnem in any manner whatsoever; never authorized anybody else to do so. I was, to my best knowledge and be- lief, never introduced even casually to him or any of them. To my best know- ledge and belief I never saw asiy of ! them except Mr. Morgan himself and I that was across the larcre dlntnsr room oi tne iew wiuaru at a gridiron ciud banquet to Lauterbach here in Washington in the presence of several men and passed the usual salutation with him. That was all. I never saw him before or since and never communicated 'With him in any manner whatsoever about any business matter whatsoever. "I had never heard of Lamar and knew only by seeing his name in the papers tnat mere is such a man as Lewis Cass Ledyard. It seems to me that when Mr. Ledyard found out that senator Stone's name and mine were beta? bandied about by Lamar, the psuedo-Palmer and Lauterbach, he ought to have let me know." The speaker was not sworn and the committee did not ask him any ques tions. He left the room when he fin ished his statement "Bo Frebe Labor "War." All the "wars" that have been fought between labor and caoitaL all the efforts that both have made to secure legislation to profit them, and the tangled skein woven about their rela tions in the last 10 years are to be in vestigated by congress.

The committee decided to look into this subject, believing that it mav develop startling information and knowing it will extend' the inquiry many weeks. One senator- said that the quest might reach back into some of the dark cor ners of the McNamara dynamiting case and might bring into the light the In side story of many of the great strikes that have paralyzed industries and thrown thousands out of work In the last few years. He intimated too. that It might develop by far the most mar velous of all the strange tales that the committee has heard in the last six weeks. Senate to Proteet Malhall.
