THE MORE TROUBLE OVER JONES He Replies to Adverse Re port of the Com- : mittee HIS CASE EARNESTLY PRESSED BY MINORITY Vardaman Assails Appointee and Says Harvester Trust To Mrcf TnJrniirmiS 'Washington, July 22. The contest over President Wilson's nomination to the federal reserve board took on re newed activity yesterday when Thomas B. Jones of Chicago replied to the ad verse report of nomination. The minor ity which supported him at once began working Qtn its report. When it is pre sented to the Senate later this week, a vote may be forced. White House officials heard, unofficial reports that Senator O'Uorrnan and Paul hi iv.riM.nT nnnfher of the president's contested nominees, had a conference at White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., to bridge over the difficulties between Mr. Warburg and the banking committee, before which he has refused to appear. No word has been, received either from Mr. Warburg or Senator O'Gorman. Sen ators of the banking committee denied they had any fart in the effort to induce Mr Warburg to appear but thought it probable he would do.so, in which case they believe there, will be little oppo sition to his confirmation. " Senator Vardaman, one of the Demo crats opposing Mr. Jones, issued ft state ment declaring he could not voto for him. "1 have, the same objection to him, and men of his kind, being put in control and management of our banking and currency system that the Christian would interpose to a pagan teaching theology in a Christian college or an im perialist administering laws, resigned to establish a democracy." J am sorry the" president appointed him," said he. After conferences yesterday between President Wilson, Postmaster General Burleson, Senator Lee and others, it was said the administration was sure that Mr. Jones will be confirmed. One mem ber of the cabinet, who has been active in seeking support for Mr. Jones told the -president he believed there was ab solutely no doubt.

The long con tinued effort to untangle the New Haven railroad situation without litigation came to an end yesterday when President Wilson, in a letter to Attorney General McReynolds directed the instigation of ft Sherman law suit to dissolve the sys tem. ' He also ordered that the criminal aspects of the ease be laid before a fed eral grand jury. An interesting phase ot tne coire spondenee was contained in the McRey nolds letter to 'Wilson, in which there is a decided rebuke for the interstate com merce commission for its action in sub-pr-ning Charles S. Mellen and others, with the possible result of embarrassing the department by a claim of immunity in return for their testimony. It is understood that any claim of im munity will be fought. rractically all the time at the cabinet moeiinrr vesterdnv was devoted to dis- r'UHsinn o'f the covemment's impending anti-trust suit to dissolve the New Ha ven railroad merger. Attorney (.eneral McReynolds presented a complete state .nnnr'nf tin. efforts of the department of justice to bring the railroad system within the law without a court fight. It is understood that he stated that certain directors of the New Haven had tried to obtain immunity by making promises to carry out to the most mi nute degree the demand for dissolution. The attorney general declared that lie had refused to bargain. He also said that he believed it would be necessary to push a dissolution suit under the Sherman law, inasmuch as the directors had "gone back on their promise" to dis solve the merger voluntarily. Following the cabinet meeting. Mr. McReynolds said that he would issue a statement late yesterday setting forth all of the details of the New Haven sit uation and outlining the future plans of the department of justice in connection with it. i mil hi i ii si i y Railroad Co. expected to receive yester day afternoon a report from President Hustis and the othttr representatives of the system, who conferred with Attor ney General McReynolds Monday in Washington.

R. HUNT FOR TRINITY RIVER IN TEXAS Senator Pomerene, Attacking "Pork Bar rel" Provision, Says "Stream" Has Dried Up. Washington," July 22. Senator Pom erene. of Ohio would send Col. Roosevelt to Texas to search for some of the rivers provided for in the "pork barrel" bill now before the Senate. When the river and harbor bill was up in the Senate Monday and Senator Bur ton whs continuing his six-day argument agRinst it, Senator Kenyon interrupted to read this interview with M. J. Wirth of Fort Worth, Tex. "1 believe more than $1,000,000 has n.i, , to. I for Trinitv river. If ur,-n p'."' , . any senator in Washington can find this particular river at thus time ne can uo more than we can. The Trinity neither runs, creeps nor crawls through Dallas; in fact, it does not hesitate. Recently an electric railway tried to lease the fnr in interurban line. The Trinity river is the joke of Texas, " . - t I) . . A and to-dav it is as dry as a none. u we never "fail to get an appropriation. "Would it not lie well," remarked Sen ator Pomerene, " to send the discoverer of the River of Doubt down to Texas to find the Trinity?" The Senate lunched and Senator Shep- psrd promised at a later day to defend 1he provision for fiW.iHH) ior jnr.uy river in the "pork barrel" bill. IN LOCAL MARKETS TO MEET THE SUIT.

IN THE FIELD OF SPORTS avoided the strike among players be longing to the Baseball Players Frater nity bv Durchasimr the interests of the Nashville club in Kraft, the outfielder. Kraft was with the Brooklyn National club, coming from Newark. He was then sent to the Nashville club. Kraft sternly objected. At Nashville his sal ary would have been considerably nnder the Newark figures. The players' fra ternity averred that he should go to the Newark club. Both the national com mission and the Baseball Players' Fra ternity seemed firmly convinced in their issues and the entire aflair assuraea vne attitude of war. The players were to have left their clubs and their contracts called void to-day if the national com mission did not acquiesce in the matter. President Ebbetts of the Dodgers, who is a part owner of the Newark club, stepped into the breach and bought the Nashville team's interest in the play er. Ebbetts says that he mad the move without either' the request or Instruc tion from either the American or Na tional league. He said he acted entire ly upon his own responsibility. Catcher Ropers of the Highlanders has been given his unconditional release. Manager Dunn of the Baltimore In ternationals has sold another of his good players. Outfielder "Bert" Daniels ha been sold to the Cincinnati Reds. He joined the team this week. The Boston Braves have won nine out of 13 games on the western trip to date. The club also is fighting for games, jumping from eighth to fourth poitio in the National league race. Another extra inning game of some consequence was recorded last week. It was between the Vichita and Sioux City clubs of the Western league, lasting 83 innings. TO FACILITATE RATE FIXING. Railroads Will Be Asked To Keep Ac counts Apart. Washington, July 22.
