Washington.—Eleventh hour legisla
tion was nccesary to prevent a sus
pension of government operations as
a result of mismanagement but Con
gross extended the appropriations of
the past fiscal year through July and
made it unnecessary to drop several
hundred thousand civilian employes
from the government payroll at mid
night July 1.
Juse before he left to attend the na
tional sangerfest at Philadelphia,
President Taft signed the bill.
A Joint resolution making the exten
ilon was necessary because of the
[allure of Congress to pass nine of the
appropriation bills before the begin
ning of the 1913 fiscal year. The bills
In question were the agricultural,
army, Indian, legislative, military,
academy, naval, pension, postoffice
end sundry civil.,The army bill, which
was passed by both houses, was ve
toed by the President June 17 because
It contained objectionable legislation.
The resolution went through the
Senate after passing the House, at
12:25 o’clock Monday, but through a
mlscue by the Democratic manipula
tors of the measure It did not reach
the President for his signature until
after 2 o’clock. The Democratic lead
ers overlooked having the document
signed by Congressman Alexander,
who was acting as speaker. The Pres
ident was inconvenienced in his depar
ture by the delay.
It was pointed out by the House ap
propriations committee in its report
that similar measures have been ne
cessitated in the past because of the
regular appropriations having failed
to pass. Like conditions existed in
1876, 1882, 1884, 1886, 1890, 1892, and
1894, it was argued in extenuation of
the embarassment caused this year.
Representative Hay presented a
resolution appropriating $1,350,000 for
the expenses of the Joint maneuvers
of the regular army and militia. The
measure was passed unanimously aft

short speech in explanation of its pre

is that the states have gone ahead in
good faith and made preparations and

said. “However, I want it understood

the House committee in the same
form as it was vetoed by President
Taft, and it is expected another bitter
fight will be precipitated.

Arkansas Valley Crop $9,000,000.
Pueblo. —The crops in the Arkansas
valley of Colorado are expected to
bring approximately $9,000,000 this
year. The estimate is based upon ac
tual figures, taken from the number
of acres planted to the various crops,
and does not include the fruit in the
Cafion City district.
Without the question of a doubt this
will be the most prosperous year lu
the history of the whole valley, and
business already is brisk in anticipa
tion of the heavy crop returns.
The five leading crops will be
wheat, $2,975,000; sugar beets, $2,587,-
000; alfalfa, $1,400,000; oats, $1,210,-
000 and cantaloupes $316,000, making
a total of $8,418,500. To this will have
to be added the amounts received for
all of the minor crops, no estimate
upon which has been furnished.

being made to see that proper 'provi

Baltimore.—The Missouri delegation
In a frenzy of rage over the steady de
cline of Speaker Clark’s vote since
the attack upon him by W. J. Bryan
on Saturday, directed a menacing
demonstration late Monday afternoon
against the Nebraskan. Only the
prompt Interference of the police
saved him from personal injury.
For several minutes the maddened
Missourians fought and struggled to
get to the platform, where Bryan was
standing. Police, reinforced by news
paper correspondents, struck outright
and left at the oncoming Clark men.
Down In the body of the hall Ne
braskans were coming to the defense
of the threatened leader.
Fist fights started in Massachu
setts and Connecticut, and for a mo
ment It looked as though panic had
seized the convention and reason had
The fights were precipitated by the
display of a banner before the Ne
braska delegation on which were
printed huge letters of* an endorse
ment given by Bryan of Speaker
Clark more than one year ago. Bryan
demanded the right to reply to the in
dorsement if the demonstration was
authorized by the Clark leaders In the
Missouri delegation.
The Illinois delegates held a meet
ing Just after the adjournment of the
convention and decided to cast their
fifty-eight votes for Governor Wilson.
It is reported that Speaker Clark
has been taken to a sanitarium where
he is said to be suffering from a nerv
ous breakdown.
The deadlock was not broken when
the forty-second ballot was polled, and
the Democratic convention adjourned
at 12:43 a. m. Tuesday until noon.
Governor Woodrow Wilson made
steady gains all day Monday, reached
the high-water mark of 601% on the
thirty-ninth ballot, then lost ground
slightly until the last, when he re
ceived 494 votes.
On the thirty-ninth ballot the Colo
rado delegation broke —J. A- Ferris or

It was predicted that Illinois would
follow, but the temper of the crowd

It is predicted that when the con

ballot was announced Delegate Wal

and moved to adjourn until Tuesday

motion, and A. Mitchell Palmer de
manded a roll-call.
Delegates Began to Leave.
The roll call had scarcely begun be
fore the weary delegates, seeing that
the motion was certain to prevail, be
gan to crowd from their seats and out
of the hall. The aisles were jammed
before half a dozen states were called
and the call proceeded in disorder.
By the time the last state bad been
called less than half the delegates
were in their places.
The end of the call was finally
reached and at 12:43 a. m. the con
vention adjourned until noon Tues
Speaker Champ Clark reached the
lowest ebb of his candidacy on the
ballot where Wilson reached a crest.
He went down to 422 votes at that
time, but immediately began to pick
up and had gone to 430 when adjourn
ment was taken.
The speaker came over to Baltimore
during the evening and was a guest
at the home of Mayor Preston, near
the convention hall. He returned to
Washington shortly before midnight.
Almost a full week of controversy
between rival factions had sorely tried
the patience and tempers of the dele
gates and the crowd which gathered
was ordinarily an irritable and ex
citable one. The tensity of the situa
tion had shown itself in a semi-riot

Police were warned to exert extra
ordinary vigilance in the future. The
slow, vacillating rise and fall of the

the day had increased the steadily
growing bitterness of the past week
and the match of offense, touched
to the extreme, would have set the
entire convention ablaze.
