INSTRUCT FINANCE COMMITTEE
Must Report Wool Measure Back for
Action Before July 10 Sixteen Re
publican Senators Vote With the
Opposition on Point.
Washington, June 22. The throwing
of the Democratic wool tariff revision
bill into the senate drove the insur
gent Republicans of that body into an
open coalition with the Democrats, in
a demand for a general revision of the
tariff, and brought about the threat
ened crisis In the finance committee's
control of the senate. At the end of
a bitter fight, a resolution by Senator
Gore, requiring the finance committee
to report back the wool bill before
July 10, was passed by a vote of 39 to
The fate of the Canadian reciprocity
bill la today In doubt. Western Re
publicans who have fought the reci
procity measure, taking up challenges
thrown down by the Democratic lead
ers, followed each other in rapid suc
cession with ultimatums Invaria
bly to the effect that before the reci
procity bill is permitted to pass a Re
publican senate will be forced to un
dertake a revision of other schedules
of the tariff, including more than the
woolen revision bill and the free list
bill, which have gone through the
house of representatives.
16 Republicans Vote With Minority.
Of the affirmative votes cast for the
Gore motion overthrowing the finance
committee, sixteen were Republicans.
They were: Borah, Bourne, Brlstow,
Drown, Clapp, Crawford, Cummins,
Jixon, Gronna, Jones, Kenyon, LaFol
lette, Nelson, Polndexter, Townsend
This included the full Insurgent
strength of thirteen and, In addition,
Senators Jones, Nelson and Townsend.
Senator Myers was the only Democrat
voting with the Republicans against
Senators Nelson, Cummins, Craw
ferd, La Follette, Jones and other Re
publican Insurgents from northwest
ern states, who have opposed the reci
procity bill because of alleged dis
criminations gainst the agricultural
Interests, declared that before a vote
would be permitted on the reciprocity
hill they would demand that the other
schedules of the tariff be taken up,
and would Insist upon an attempt to
tack many of them upon the reclproc
Speak on Reciprocity. . .
Speeches on reciprocity were made
In both branches of congress. Senator
Hoot, announcing that he favored the
agreement, advocated and explained
his amendment to the wood pulp and
paper provision of the bill, around
which amendment the reciprocity fight
has centered and which amendment
President Taft opposes on the ground
that It might jeopardize the whole
agreement. Republican Leader Mann
in the house attacked the Root amend
ment as a violation of the Canadian
Senator Hitchcock also spoke In op
position to the Root amendment. He
declared that If the amendment was
adopted it would nullify section 2 of
Wool BUI Starts Fight.
The fight began the Instant that the
wool revision bill appeared from the
louse of representatives. Senator
(lore, apparently with the approval of
Democratic lenders, moved that the
finance comniitt.ee bo Instructed to re
port the bill back lo the senate on or
bcfoie July 1. R was carried by a
vote of 30 to 18, sixteen Republicans
voting with the Democrats. The ad
mitted purpose of the motion was to
prevent the finance committee from
holding the bill Indefinitely or from
falling to m port It at all.
The result of the Gore motion was
to disrupt so completely the lines that
licve formed In the senate that it can
rot be foretold row when a vote tan
be rearhed on the reciprocity bill, or
v hether er-ough v tes can be mustered
to pass it.
SENATE CHANGE REJECTED
House Turns Down Brlstow Amend,
ment to Direct Elections Measure.
Washington, June 22. The house of
representatives, by a vote of 172 to
112, practically a strict party vote,
refused to concur in the Bristow
amendment adopted by the senate to
the house resolution providing for the
direct election of senators. The Brls
tow amendment leaves with ronsre.s
the power to regulate the time and
manner of holding these elections,
while the resolution passed by tho
house during the early days of the
present session would change the con
stitution so that "the time, places
and manner of holding elections for
senators shall be as pref rlbed In each
state by the legislature thereof."
Representative Sells (Rep., Tenn.)
oted against the amendment. Whll
Burke (Dem , Wis.) voted for It. Rep
resentative Berger (Soc. Wis.) voted
for it. The resolution, therefore, Is
returned to tho senate for reconsider
ittion by that body as to whether It
wHl reverse its former action.
LONG HAUL CASE ARGUED
Railroads Seek to Show That Higher
Charge for Shorter Haul Is AH Right
Chicago, June 22. Attorneys for
western railroads argued before Henry
Thuitell, special examiner for the in
terstate commeice commission to show
that they should be- allowed to main
tain their present difference in
freight rates for long and short hauls,
wherein the long hauls are cheaper.
The ratios Involved are on grain, coal,
lumber and live stock.
The railroa.ls directly concerned are
the Chicago and Northwestern, the
Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, the

Gould the Wayne Normzl.
Lincoln, June 22. The state normal
school board met in this city and

A slight nilx-up over the records of
the meeting of the board held at Cbad
ron some time ago occurred. Presi
dent Shellhorn objected to a part of
the record which related to the new
rule allowing two months' leave of ab
sence with one month's pay for school
teachers who desire to take studies at
Institutions In order that they might
be better prepared for their work.
The Peru man's Interpetatlon was that
it reflerted In a way on the principals
of the state normals. A motion to ex
punge the objectionable sentence from
the records was lost and it stood as
written Pt the Chadron meeting.
The board opened bids for a $55,000
building at Wayne and another to cost
sa much at Kearney.
The board awarded the contract for
the Wayne building to Gould & Son,

ASKS AMENDMENT OF LAW,
Executive Says Misbranding of Medi
cines as to Their Curative Qualities
Should Be Prohibited and Urges
Washington, June 22. In a message
prepared In New York and transmitted
through the White House to congress,
President Taft arraigned the mauu
facturers of what he denounced "dan
gerous drug frauds," and urged con
gress to amend at this session the
pure food and drug law to strengthen
that act in vital points of weakness re
cently pointed out by decisions of the
United States supreme court.
President Taft believes that unlesi
the law Is amended forthwith the
country will again be flooded by "In
jurious nostrums" and "cure alls,"
which were common before the purs
food law first was enacted.
The president, In his message, says:
"To the Senate and House of Repre
sentatives: Your attention Is respect
fully called to the necessity of pass
ing at this session an amendment to
the food and drugs act of June 20,
1906, which will supplement existing
law and prevent the shipment in in
terstate and foreign commerce and
the manufacture and sale within the
territories and the District of Colum
bia of worthless nostrums labeled with
misstatements of fact as to their phys
iological action misstatements false
and misleading even in the knowledge
of thoe who make them.
"Of June 30, 1906, after an agitation
of twenty years, the food and drugs
act passed by the Fifty-ninth congress
received the approval of the president
and became law.
"The law has been vigorously en
forced. More than 2,000 cases hava
been prepared for criminal prosecu
tion against the shippers of adulter
ated or misbranded foods and drugs,
and seizures have been made of mors
than 700 shipments of such articles
More that twothlrds of these cases
have been begun since March 4, 1909.
Of the criminal cases, more than 800
have terminated favorably to the gov
ernment. In every case In which the
food seized was deleterious to health
It was destroyed. -
Defect In Law.
"The supreme court has held In a re
tent decision United States against
O. A. Johnson, opinion May 29, 1911,)
that the food and drugs act does not
cover the knowing false labeling of
nostrums as to curative effect of phys
iological action, and that Inquiry under
this salutory statute does not by Its
terms extend In any case to the Inef
ficiency of medicine to work the cures
claimed for them on the labels. It
follows that, without fear of punish
ment tinder the law, unscrupulous per
sons, knowing the medicines to hav
no curative or remedial value for tha
diseases for which they lndrate them,
may ship In Interstate commerce med
icine composed of substances possess
ing any slight physiological action and
labeled as cures for diseases which, In
the present state of science, are recog
nlzed as Incurable."
"Thero are none so credulous as
sufferers from dlsense. The need la
urgent for leglslption which will pre
rent the raising of false hopes ol
speedy cures of serious ailments by
misstatements of facts as to worthless
mixtures In which the sick will rely,
whllo their diseases progress un
checked." GRAIN AND PROVISIONS

Was Very Sleepy.
Last Saturday night, or, to be
more nearly correct, early Sunday
morning, Night Policeman Trout
found a belated dancer lying
asleep on Hie electric chair in
front of Gorder Si Son's imple
ment house. The. sleeping man
J wore only the covering nature
gave him, with the exception that
his trousers were twined about
bis neck to protect him from any
attack of bronchitis. On beink
awakened the weary and sleepy
gentleman walked across the
street lo Ihe porch seat in front
of O. P. Monroe's store, where ho
found his shoes and stockings
and coat and vest and undercloth
ing. The kind-hearted policeman
allowed him to dress and find
.more convenient sleeping apart
ments. At the urgent request of
the disturbed sleeper his name is
'withheld, as he has promised the
night police to seek a more
scheduled place before disrobing
.for the night the next lime he is
out to a dance.
