STIRS IP ROW IN KANSAS
Chief Executive Names Official Sug
gested by Governor Stubbs and
Finds He Has Put Himself In an
Attitude of Opposition to the Entire
Congressional Delegation Prom That
State.
Washington, May ltv—President
Jaft has written a letter to Governor
#tubbs of Kansas, In which he de
clares with emphasis that he will not
permit himself to be used by any po
litical faction for the promotion of
political fortunes and at the same
time revoking the appointment of
Robert Stone of Topeka, a personal
friend of Oovernor Stubbs, to be a
special assistant to the United States
attorney general.
The situation grows out of the Bris
tow-Long senatorial flght of last year,
it is said. President Taft, a personal
friend of Senator Long's, kept out of

that fight because he did not want to
be placed in a position of having in
terfered in any factional flght in any
state. Governor Stubbs was allied
with Mr. Bristow.
Whon Governor Stubbs was In
Washington several weeks ago in con
nection with the application of the
Kansas bank guarantee law to na
tional banks he asked the president
to appoint a Kansas man to a good
position in the department of justice.
The president consented, supposing, it
is said, that whoever was named
would have the backing of the con
gressional delegation from the state.
Stubbs After Seat in 8enate.
After his return home Governor
Stubbs suggested the appointment of
Mr. Stone, who resides in Topeka, the
home of Senator Curtis. It is satd
thut Governor Stubbs is to be a can
didate for the United States senate
against Senator Curtis. Mr. Stone
was appointed as special assistant at
torney general and the announcement
of the fact was widely printed In
Kansas. This war. the lirwt that Sen
ator Curtis and Representative An
iliony of the Topeka district had
heard of the matter and they imme
diately went to the White House and
placud the situation before President
Taft. The latter immediately wrote
two letters, one to Governor Stubbs
and one to Attorney General Wlcker
shara, directing the latter to hold up
the appointment of Mr. Stone and
saying that Governor Stubbs "has
thoughtlessly placed us In a position
that is entirely indefensible." In his
letter to Governor Stubbs the presi
dent said he supposed the appoint
ment of Mr. Stone would be credited
to the entire state and that he had
expected to consult the congressional
delegation about it. Continuing, the
president said:

appointment is heralded, as 4 &uinijta-

and as a joke on them, not only that,
but also au instrument for the defeat
of one of the congressmen, Mr. An

GORE ASKS FOR
INVESTIGATION
Wants to Know if Retailers
Practice Extortion.
SIEELSCHEDULE TAKEN UT
Senate Committee's Proposed In
crease on Structural Product With*
drawn and House Provision It
Adopted—Mr. Aldrlch Apprehensive
That a Grave Injustice la Being
Done the 8teel Industry.
Washington, May 17.—As soon ai
a quorum was announced in the sen
ate Mr. Gore, the blind senator from
Oklahoma, precipitated a lively de
bate by asking immediate considera
tion of a resolution instructing the
committee on finance to obtain by In
vestigation the import prices of vari
ous articles of general and ordinary
consumption and also the wholesale
and retail prices of such articles when
used in this country. The object of
the resolution is to determine whether
the retailers of the country are prac
ticing extortion.
In moving the resolution be re
ferred to the committee on finance
Mr. Hale said It conferred no new
authority upon that committee and
could only embarrass It.
Mr. Johnstone of Alabama treated
the tariff humorously. He congratu
lated the majority that it had plaewl
"spunk" on the free list and said if
there was more of that article the Re
publicans would make a better tariff
bill.
When the steel schedule was taken
up Mr. Aldrlch withdrew the amend
ment of the committee on finance in
creasing the duty on structural steel
from three-tenths to four-tenths of 1
cent a pound and the house provision
of three-tenths of 1 cent per pound
was adopted.
Referring to an amendment to this
paragraph not permitting structural
steel to be assembled when imported
Mr. Aldrich said:
Aldrich Is Apprehensive.
"The rates of duty In this industry
havo been cut nearly one-half and 1
desire to place on record the great ap
prehension that we may be commit
ting a grave injustice to this great in
dustry."
He said the manufacturers of Bel
gium and Oermany may be able under
these rates to send in their structural
iron and steel when they have a sur
plus or the conditions warrant such
action.
Senators Cummins, Newlands ami
Smith of 8outh Carolina contended
that even with the reduced rate th
duty was too high.
Reading from the testimony of Mr.
Carnegie before the ways and means
committee concerning profits In the
steel industry Mr. Tillman declared
that Mr. Carnegie had made a vast
amount of money by favoritism in leg
islatlon.
"I wlU not say by dishonesty," said
Mr. Tillman, "because he has only
taken advantage of the laws we pass.
But he has made more money than
the entire bunch of us here put to
gether and there are some very rich
men in this senate. He has given
away more money than all the Demo
crats of this body possess—ten times
as much, I expect."
Saying Mr. Carnegie had taken his
great wealth from the pockets of the
people Mr. Tillman added: "I us*
nails and wire fencing and other prod
ucts of his corporation and when I
buy those things he takes money out
of my pocket and puts It in his."

CONSIDERS STRIKE AT END
French Government Fears No Further
Spread of Trouble.
Paris, May 17.—The government re
gards the strike of the government
employes, particularly the postmen,
as virtually ended. The bombastic
speeches and resolutions delivered at
the strikers' meetings have had no
sequel and the threat of a railroad
strike is considered as a pure bluff.
More strikers have returned to work.
They entered the movement from pro
fesslonal motives, but they are now
alarmed by the revolutionary designs
of the leaders. Moreover, the (Jon
eral Federation of Labor, perceiving
that the psychological moment has
passed and that the moveaaent Is
doomed to failure, Is no longer an*
lous to associate Itself with a lost
oause.
The cabinet considered the strike
of the postmen and approved the dis
missal of 313 additional employes ac
oused of inciting to revolt.
The text of a new bill definitely reg
ulating the right of state employes to
form associations, but specifically ex
eluding the right to strike, will at
once be submitted to parliament.
Moreovor, the cabinet has agreed to
ask the senate to proceed to the con
sideration of the workmen's pension
bill early in June.
