WASHINGTON. Juna It Having com
pleted consideration of Items of the tariff
hill that hart been passed over under ob
jections by senator during Its second read
Ing, the adjournment of the senate today
marked an Important period In the progress
of the measure through the senate. When
the bill Is again taken up It will be upon
Its third reading for the final disposition
of Items upon which the most pronounced
objections have been made.
On completing; the second reading of the
bill today, a number of Items In the free
list were disposed of. Works of art over
twenty years old and collections Illustrating
the progress of the arta over 100 years old
which were placed In the free list by the
committee on finance, were retained there
after an int resting; debate by a vote of
53 to IB.
Art Cornea In Free.
A fight was made on this amendment on
the ground that It would allow wealthy
men to decorate their homes with European
oil paintings and other artistic products of
the aid world without payment of duty and
that It would permit the entry Into this
country of many art collections now stored
abroad without any benefit to the revenues
of the government. The amendment was
defended by both republicans and demo
crats on the ground that Its result would
be both educational and refining, and that
the works of art of the age Indicated could
not come Into competition with the products
of American painters and sculptors. This
will permit the great art collection made
by J. Pierpont Morgan at an expenditure
of many millions of dollars and now stored
In London to bo brought here.
Consideration of the free list of the tariff
bill was resumed by the senate after a speech
by Senator Overman, who characterised the
Payne-Aldrlch bill as one of the moat
Iniquitous tariff bills ever passed by con
gress, if It is passed. Mr. Overman favored
Senator Bailey's Income tax amendment
and declared he would offer an amendment
for a head tax on Immigrants and an
amendment empowering the president to
abrogate the collection of duties on articles
e'frTlar To those manufactured by a cor
potation which controls 60 per cent of the
American output and which offers Ita goods
for aile In foreign countries at lower prices
than In the United States.
After Senator Overman had concluded
his speech the senate resumed its considera
tlon of the free list of the tariff bill. The
paragraph relating to crude potash, potash
.ai Donate and caustic potash was agreed
to, Senator Clark of Wyoming reserving
peimUston to offer further amendment
to the paragraph if he should desire to
do so.

Earth Fill at
Pathfinder Dam
Source of Danger
If Pile of Dirt Gbes Out Floods Might
Sweep Down Platte River
DOUGLAS, Wyo., June 12. (Special.) It
haa been learned that although the mas
onry dam at the Pathfinder reservoir on
tha Sweetwater river Is In no danger and
will probably stand until the end of time,
there la an earth fill on one side of the
great pile of maaonry that may go out,
and If It doea, then the Platte valley will
be flooded and the towns of Casper, Doug-
i and many valuable ranches will be In
This earth fill Is at the mouth of a canon
running out from the big reservoir. Eighty
feet of water twenty miles long Is pressing
against this earth barrier and the water
Is rising at the rate of eighteen inches
per day. Should the earth bank go out
this large volume of water will be emp
tied Into the canon, which In turn empties
Into the Platte river, and this big stream
already overflowing Its banks In many
places, could not carry the flood. The
valley In many places Is narrow and at
these placea the flood would be deep and
aufftclently ewlft to carry everything be
fore It. Casper and Douglas lie directly In
the path of this threatened danger, and
warned, as they are now, the people would
not have time to get to places of safety
should this earth embankment give way.

Baron Takahira Delivers Address on
"Commercial Invasion'' of
Situation as it is, He Declares, Cannot
Be Avoided.
Sent Perry Expedition There', and
Opened Ports to the World.
Speech Is Delivered at t'nlverelty of
Mlchlsran Mlsrhlevoaa Stories,
He Saya No Longer Deceive
or Do Any Harm.
ANN ARBOR. June 12. Baron Kogoro
Takahira. Japanese ambassador, In an ad
dress at the University of Michigan today
discussed the so-called commercial inva
sion of America, declaring It Impossible
to avoid commercial rivalry, which, he
said, Is simply an outcome of the develop
ment of International relations.
"The only way to meet such a situation
Is, as it seems to me, to conduct such
rivalry In a friendly and right spirit," said
"While our trade has been so rapidly
Increasing," suld Ambassador Takahira. "I
hear some times rather harsh complaint
against Japan for starting cotton mills and
cigarette manufacturing establishments,
and no longer Importing piece goods or
manufactured tobacco, which we used to
buy from this country; but It must be
borne In mind that In making cotton goods
and cigarettes In our own establishments
we are buying raw cotton and tobacco
leavea from the United States.
Rivalry Is t'na voidable.
"I also hear some heartrending reports to
the effect that since Japanese merchants
bciame energetic certain American houses
have been losing their business in the far
et stern trade. Painful aa Is that report, I
cannot help conceding that In this age of
rapid communication and transportation,
v hlch Is no doubt a great agency to facili
tate the progress of civilization. It Is Im
possible to avoid commercial rivalry, which
le simply an outcome of the development
of International relations."
"The total amount of Japanese trade has
been steadily and largely Increasing," said
the speaker. "When there Is such a large
increase In the total I venture to think wa
have to satisfy ourselves with It, In view
of the national Importance Involved tn It,
even If there are a few articles or some
houses that have to lose their business
from the changed conditions. - .
"The United Statea opened Japan to for
eign commerce by sending there tha fam
ous Perry expedition some half century
ago and helped her rise to the less mod
est position of the present day. The Un
ited States organised the Philippine
Islands, In late years, by Introducing an
Improved system of government and se
curing a permanent peace for the Inhab
itants. These friendly and humane
achievements, together with many other
noble and generous actions taken towards
the far eastern countries by your govern
ment, have most unreservedly endeared
the Americans to the peoples of these
New Era la Comlag.
"All these circumstances taken together
Into consideration, I doubt not your parti
cipation in the coming exposition of the
arts of peace In Japan will tend to create
a new era for the commercial development
of the two borders of the Pacific and to
form the strongest ties between the Amer
ican and the Asiatic people for their
mutual friendship and common lntereat
with every prospect of beneficial results
to the general welfare of mankind at
The ambassador said the unpleasant, un
thinkable stories, which were propagated
In some quartan In recent years enlarging
upon unfortunate conditions in tha west,
have entirely disappeared before making
much mischief.
"There can be no stronger evidence to
prove the genuine friendship of the Un
ited States and Japan than the several
compacts existing between the two coun
tries In the course of the last two years."
In the course of hla addresB the speaker
"There haa been nothing which proved
to have more effectively contributed to
tha progress of Japan than the sympathetic
efforts and conscientious services rendered
by the American educators In introducing
Into my country the modern method of
education and also In Instructing my coun
trymen who came to this country to study
In your schools. I am only echoing the
sentiment of the Japanese nation when
I say that we owe a great debt of grati
tude to the University of Michigan for the
education of our young men."

LINCOLN, Neb.. June 12 (Special.)
Durng the last few days the democratic
dinner at Kearney has been discussed In
Lincoln as a real live Issue and tn gen
eral Impression Is prevalent that at that
meeting booms will be launched for John
J. Sullivan. W. D. Oldham and Conrad
llollenbeck as democratic candidates for
supreme Judges. In this way It la the
hope of those who are getting up the
dinner to be able to control the demo
cratic machinery in the campaign of one
year from now.
Some democrats who were particularly
conspicuous during the campaign of one
year bro were not Invited to the meet
ing and not placed on the toast list which
has occasioned some surprise.
The printed list of speakers which
have been received here do not contain
the name of Richard L. Metcalfe and
neither does the name W. B. Price of
Lincoln, who waa the party's candidate
for auditor a year ago, appear among
those Invited to speak.
This omission of some of the most
prominent members of the party and Ita
hardest workers Is being talked about in
the hotels, and In this connection the fol
lowing statement by E. B. Quackenbush,
a member of the 1S07 legislature, Is sig
nificant of breakers ahead for those who
are planning on managing the democratlu
party In the next campaign:
"I notice Richard L. Metcalfe has been
mentioned for United States senator on
the democratic ticket," said Mr. Quackeu
bush. "That suits me and It will suit a
lot of democrats. I shall be glad to sup
port Metcalfe If he runs. I believe he la
the strongest man the democrats can nomi
nate. A lot of democrats are under obliga
tions to Metcalfe and as he has not asked
for any office heretofore I believe he la
entitled to the nomination "
Mr. Quackenbush expressed the opinion
that Mr. Bryan would not accept the nomi
nation even thuugh it were urged upon him.
