The motion to table the Gore resolu tion was decided upon by administra tion leaders and Republican supporters In the senate late Thursday as the best means of getting finally rid of it with out debate. (.ore Voted tgalnst Illmseir, Senator Gore himself voted to table his resolution. Senators Chamberlain and O'Gftrman were the only Democrats who voted against the administration The other 1! anti-administration votes were Republican .Forty-seven uimo crats and 21 Republicans voted to table the resolution Senator Smunt K-vcnweil. During the roll call, senator Smoot, Republican, asked to be excused from voting because he was not able to vote direct on the proposition. Senator Bo rah, Republican, objected, but the sen ate'voted to excuse him When senator's Stone's name was called he arose to explain that senator Saulsbury. Democrat, if present, would have voted aye on the original resolu tion Ilorah lllsunilerstnnilHj Object. Senator Borah, misunderstanding that senator Stone waB explaining the vote of a colleague, objected "If this senate is going to be gagged, the senator from Missouri will be gagged with the rest of us," senator Borah shouted When order was restored senator Stone explained "on this resolution I vote aye" Some Incrrfnlnly About Voting. There was some uncertainty among senators as to the status of the various resolution when the roll call had begun. .It was explained then that senator James had moved to lay not only the Gore warning resolution, but also the socalled corrected resolution, on the table. It was necessary then for sena tors to express themselves as to warn ing and on the question of killing of an American on an unwarned merchant man as a cause for war, in one vote. , Tor that reason senator Gore voted to table because he did not favor his own substitute and had Introduced it merely to get an expression of the senate on that issue f!ores substitute Itesolutlon. The text of senator Gore's addition to his original resolution, and which was tabled with the warning resolu tion, was as follows "Resolved, by the senate, the house of representatives concurring, that the sinking by a German submarine with out notice or warning of an armed merchant vessel of her public enemy, resulting in the death of a citizen of the United States would constitute a just and sufficient cause of war be tween the United States and the Ger man empire ' House Lender at Work. While the senate was voting, house leaders were working There was no doubt that the administration victory In the senate was expected to solidify the sentiment In the house and the leaders looked for some developments during the day llnon Demand Honne Vote. President Wilson, after he had con ferred with acting chairman Pou of the rules committee, determined to have a vote In the house even if a special rule containing a resolution were required to get it. Insistence that a vote be taken by rule committee action. If necessary, came after varying reports as to the stand of the foreign affairs committee As yet no resolution has been agreed upon in the latter committee which would command a majority vote, and there was no positive assurance today that any resolntton would be reported bv It. Chairman Flood expressed the hope that a satisfactory resolution would be drawn today and reported when the committee met this after noon. snj Senate Merely Gngged. Senator Jones. Republican, declared that the tabling of the Gore resolu tions had further befogged rather than clarified any Issue. "Nothing has been decided today, ex cept that the senate of the United States can be gagged absolutely." he said. "We have not passed on the Is sue We have only done like the os trich and In the face of danger have covered our heads in the sand I vot ed against the resolution on general principles A motion to table Is al ways made either to cut off debate or to avoid an issue.

Official Wnxlilngton I'liiara Allies. 4 There Is no overlooking the fact," he said "that all the declarations of this government had led in a certain ilnection that official America, at least, was interested in the success of one of the contestants, and it does not require much Ingenuity to determine which I do not think that the view of official Washington is the view of the Americau people or of the Amer ican congress. I am out of patience with those con stantly seeking to magnify the Impor tance of the utterances of the presi dent, who feel that his having once expressed an opinion others' opinions must be instantly paralyzed " Great Debate in Senate. In one of the greatest nonpartisan de bates the senate has seen in years, thairman Stone of the foreign relations (ommittee Thursday, declared he was not In accord with the president, sen ator Lodge, the ranking Republican, pledged his support to the president's determination to secure to Americans their rights on the high seas, and sen ator John Sharp Williams, just from a sick bed, delivered a withering denunci ation of the president's opponents. Report Spread In Germany. While the senate debated, there came news to the state department from Ber lin which convinced Officials that the dissension in congress was being used deliberately to weaken the president's hand In Germany Confidential advices state that reports circulated in the Ger man capital as hav Ing come from Wash ington, declared that congress stood five to one against the president Stone Disagree VA Ith President. The storm broke in the senate prompt ly at noon Thursday when senator Stone arose to make a statement of his position In the warning controversy When the senator had .frankly stated that lie differed from the president, but that he hoped a way could be found to brine the executive and congress In closer accord, he urged that prompt ac tion was necessary to rid the president of the embarrassment he had com plained because of congressional agi tation ' Distressing as it is to me, I am obliged to disagree with the president as well as many of my colleagues." said senator Stone. "My opinions hav e been matured after great deliberation and m sense of dutv is Imperative, I can not but believe that a belligerent mer chantman, heavily armed, no matter whether it be called defensive or of fensive armament, is In all essential re spects the equivalent of a duly com missioned war v essel " Lodge Defend rreident. Senator Lodge rose on the Repub lican side to defend the president's po sition He agreed with senator Stone in Ins conclusion that the Issuo was by far the most important one before con gress and that it should be squarely met, and urged that the president had a right to ask congress for a vote on the precise question of warning em bodied in the Gore resolution. In em phatic language he upheld the deter mination of the president that nothing should be done to abridge the right of Americans to the freedom of th3 seas. a right that had not been challenged for over a cen'ury William I phold V Ib-on. As the Republican leader took his seat, senator Williams, almost too ill to stand, began to speak He said there came a time for the parting of the wajs among all peoples, all administrations and all parties, and that such a time had come in the senate now He added Through resolutions and In speeches ' - ind in whispers the chief magistrate has been prodded and nagged and dared To do what' To surrender the initiatiie the constitution placed with him and let congress take the lead In foreign relations. He has picked up the gauntlet and said 'If the patriotism of congress is behind me let's find it out and if it Is not behind me. let's find that out' , "The time has come when for me the question states Itself this way Shall I exclaim, 'America first'" or shall I sing 'Deutchland uber alles"-" For the politics in this question, sen ator Williams asserted he had the high est contempt Gore Hear llon Knvor War. As senator Gore asked recognition from the chair, news of the debate had spread to the house and the senate chamber was crowded with representa tives standing in every available space "'I introduced my resolution because I was apprehensive we were heading to ward war." he said "My act was based on a report which seemed to me to come from the highest authority that certain senators and members of the house, in a confeience with the president re ceived fom him the Iritimatton. if not the declaration, that if Germany Insisted on her position, the United States would insist upon hers and that this would result probably in a breach of diplo matic relations, and breach of diploma tic relations would probably be fol lowed by a state of war, that a stato of war might not be an evil, might not be ungrateful, might end the war by midsummer, and thus might render a great service to civilization I can not certify to the truth of the report I tell the tale as it was told me There were such external and Internal marks of truth that I feared that it might be the truth. , , "If the senator from Missouri, tho chairman of the foreign relations com mittee will deny it, that will satisfy me. If the senator from Indiana says it is not true, I will accept that" Stone Heme iieport. "I do not know why the senator quoted me," replied senator Stone "I did not quote the senator," re spended senator Gore "Well, In fairness to the president," said senator Stone, "I think 1 should state that the president never stated to me not stated in my hearing that he believed or In any way entertained the thought that war between the United States and the central powers would be desirable or would result In any good, or would not be ungrateful" "Passion for Peace.' "It is well known that the president has a passion for peace," interjected senator Kern In a tone that indicated flat denial of senator Gores charge. "I have no passion for peace," sena tor Gore responded. "I do not believe that all peace is honorable or that all war Is dishonorable" Stone gain Denies. Senator Stone Jumped to his feet a second time "The president of the United States made no such statement as quoted by the senator of Oklahoma,' senator Stone declared emphatically "What ever the president did say Is something that I do not care to repeat Whenever I go to the white house for a confer ence with the president what he says to me Is sacred. I have not repeated the conversation I had with the presi dent" What Ileally Happened. While no official statement was given out an authoritative account was obtained of what happened at the various conferences between the presi dent and the members of the senate and house. The president declared. It was said, that to warn Americans to keep off armed ships of belligerent nations would be, in effect acknowledging Jus tification for attacks on such ships. He contended that unless he was sup ported by congress and the nation he might find it impossible so to steer the politics of the government that the The HeralcTs Cooking School Would Be an Utter Impossihility Without a In fact, it is mainly due to GAS as a fuel thai cooking has reached its present high standard. The science of cooking has undoubtedly made wonderful strides since the advent of GAS as a fuel. The modern housewife no longer dreads her kitchen as in the Coal Stove days, with its smoke, intense heat, ashes and other in conveniences. Now she finds pleasure in experimenting on new dishes, with the result that today our palates are tickled with viands that are toothsome, delicious, appetizing and nutritious. And last comes the fireless cooking gas stove, in which you can roast and bake with the gas turned off.
