(S HiL SENATE PASSES REPEALMEASURE Revokes Free Tolls for Amerl can ShipsThrough Canal. Washington, June 12.—Repeal of Panama canal tolls exemption for American coastwise shipping passed the senate by a vote of 50 to ?5. The passage of the bill after a bit* ter struggle that has lasted for sev eral months was regarded as another victory for President Wilson. Although thirteen Republicans came to the aid of the Democrats who voted for the bill on final passage the president initiated the movement in his party for repeal and it was be hind him that many of the Demo crats who voted "yea" lined up on the last test. There has been no certain promise from the White House that the presi dent will sign the .bill with its qual ifying amendment, but there has been no declaration that he will veto it, and party leaders in the senate were practically certain that its approval, as amended by the house, will lead to the last favorable action by the president There was an outbreak among Democrats which showed more plain ly than anything which has gone be fore the deep feeling that has been aroused by this bill. Senators Vardaman of Mississippi and West of Georgia came near to blows, creating a scene such is had not been witnessed on the noor in many years. Apparently only the interference of Senator Ashurst and the presence of the sergeant-at-arms prevented a physical encounter. HOUSE ACCEPTS CHANGES Bill Repealing Free Canal Tolls Goes to the President Washington, June 13?—Only Presi dent Wilson's signature is necessary to repeal the clause of the Panama canal act exempting American coast wise shipping from tolls. The long and bitter fight in con gress came to an end when the house, after brief debate and without the formality of a conference, accepted by a vote of 216 to 71 the senate amend ment specifically reserving all rights the United States may have under the Hay-Pauncefote treaty or otherwise. Representative Underwood, Demo critic leader, although voting for the senate amendment, said that congress should never have made this "un American surrender," and called the amendment "ineffective and negative." Republican Leader Mann, who had vigorously opposed repeal, supported the amendment, declaring it left the entire question of the rights of this country to be determined in the fu ture. NOTICE!

Greek Prime Minister Makes Strong Declaration on Turkey. THREATENS WAR AGAINST TURKEY Greece Insists on Better Treat ment of Subjects. Athens, June 13.—A warning to Turkey, which fell little short of a formal declaration of hostilities, was uttered by Premier Venizelos of Greece in the chamber of deputies. He was speaking on the treatment of Greek subjects in Turkey. The premier's attitude showed that the tension between Greece and Tur key is near the breaking point and that the danger of war is imminent The premier obviously found diffi culty in restraining his language when he spoke of the way in which the Turks have treated his country men. He said: "I do not wish to allow to escape words which cannot be recalled, but I should fail in my duty if I did not inform the chamber of deputies that the situation has become grave—even very grave. "If a stop is not put to these con ditions the Hellenic government will be forced not to content itself with joining in the lamentations of un happy refugees." The Greek government sent a vig orous note to Turkey demanding ces sation of the persecution of the Greeks in Turkey and the repair of damage caused to them and their in terests. The Barber Shop.

The tract in question was withdrawn by the Republican administration a number of years ago for flowage and reservoir purposes.* Experience has shown that it probably is not needed for reservoir purposes and therefore it is to be opened to homestead en try by the terms of the Lindbergh, bill.

DELEGATES SIGN FIRST PROTOCOL Decide on Plan for New Mexi can Government. Niagara Falls, Ont., June 13—Dele gates from the United States and the Huerta government formally affixed their signatures in the presence of the mediating representatives of Ar gentina, Brazil and Chile to the first protocol of the series through which it is hoped to restore peace in Mex ico. The agreement reached regarding the manner of transferring the ex ecutive power from Huerta to the new provisional government stood the acid test of reduction to writing. It provides that: A government is to be constituted in Mexico of a character to be pro vided later, which shall be recognized by the United States on a date to.be fixed and which from that day for ward shall exercise public functions until there shall be inaugurated a constitutional president This plank in the peace plan was reduced to the form of a protocol af ter more than three weeks of discus sion, in the last three days of which so serious a disagreement had arisen that the success of the entire media tion program was threatened. The brief protocol was significant of two things: It makes no mention of General Huerta as the provisional president and it omits the method of transfer which the Mexican delegates and me diators suggested and to which the United States-strenuously objected on the ground that its retention would be tantamount to recognition of the existing regime. As for the American delegates they consider the method of transfer a closed incident. All parties are now concentrating on the second part of the peace plan, which will form an other protocol. It relates to the name of the provisional president and pos sibly will include his cabinet of four. Though the protocol is composed of comparatively few words it is the embodiment of that for which the United States has been striving for more than a year—elimination of Hu erta. DANGER OF FAMINE EXISTS Food Supplies Will Be Rushed to Vera Cruz. Washington, June 13.—Fear of a real famine at Vera Cruz because of failure to receive food supplies owing to the breach in the railway and to the refusal of the Huerta government to permit the rails to be replaced is giving the war department no little concern. Acting Secretary Breckenridge has concluded that the task of provision ing the city is beyond the ability of individuals and has plans for the ship ment of food on government trans ports. News of the threatened famine set the telegraph wires to work out of the department of commerce and Sec retary Redfield received assurances that American merchants soon will have large supplies of food on the way to Vera Cruz to be sold at mod erate prices. These shipments will go in free of duty, if officials here can arrange it ADLAI E. STEVENSON. Former Vice President ef the United States Is Dead. ADLAI E.

There were tears of emotion in many eyes. In a distant gallery began the melody of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic," its notes sounding above the tumult of ap plause and spreading until the re frain, "Glory, Glory, Hallelujah," was heard in every part of the mammoth Auditorium. The only woman taking part in the discussion was Mrs. James Leach of Louisville, Ky., who offered a prayer for calm discussion. Several would have discussed it, but Miss Lutie E. Stearns of Milwaukee, Wis., objected. "I don't see why there should be any discussion," she said. "Eight mil lion women are waiting for us.
