Opposition From Dem
Rate on Flour Boosted
Washington; July 1. By a vote
f 38 to 12 the senate approved to
Jay a tariff of 30 cents a bushel o,i
Democratic leaders declared dur
ing the debate which preceded the
otc that this rate would cost the
tmericau people $100,000,000. Sena
tor McCuinber, republican. North
Dakota, in charge of the measure,
Hating frankly the purpose of the
rate was to keep above the world
level the price of northern spring
wheat from the Dakota and Minne
tota, said he did not think the tariff
proposed would be carried on to
the consumer, but even if it was it
would not amount to $2 a year to
Split on Final Vote.
Minority leaders sweltering
through a four-hours' fight against
the wheat rate, talked most of the
time to practically empty seats.
Despite the fight, however, the
minority split o,n the final vote, Sen
itors Jones of New Mexico and Ken
drick of Wyoming, voting with the
solid republican majority for the
committee rate, which is an increase
of S cents over the house rate, but
a decrease of S cents from the ex
Lstin? emergency tariff duty.
With the wheat fight out of the
way, the senate made unusually rap
id progress on the bill, approving
several scores of committee amend
ments. The first to b agreed upon
was a duty of 78 cents per 100
pounds on flour, an increase of 28
cents over the house rate. Other
rates approved included!
Bocit Rate on Potatoes.
. Irish potatoes, 58 cents per 100
pounds, house rate, 2 cents; dried,
2 3-4 cents a pound, house rate, 3 1-2
cents; potato flour, 3 cents a pound,

When the conference called by
the president adiourned tonight it
appeared that little, if any, progress
had been mode in getting togetner
on a mode of procedure.
The session, which was held in
secret at the suggestion of the presi

clashes between John L. Lewis,
president, and other officers of the
United ' Mine Workers on the one
hand and the operators of the strike
zone in the bituminous and anthra
cite fields on the other.
' Union Leaders Firm.
The union leaders held to their
contention that the only satisfactory
basis of settlement is either a na
tional woge agreement or an agree
ment covering the central competi
tive fields.' The operators, with equal
obstinacy, held that they would not
be justified in making any but dis
trict or state agreements.
The conference is to meet again
tomorrow and Monday, and on July
4, if necessary, in the effort to find
a commcn ground.
"We wish you who best know
the way to solution to reach it among
yourselves in a manner to command

While a settlement of the strike,
enabling full resumption of coal
production is the immediate task of
the conference, the president urged
the miners and operators to take
steps at this conference toward a
permanent solution of the problem of
coal production and distribution.
"The government," said the presi

Nebraska n Takes Members to
Tak for Holding Up Work
Wilson Dam at
Keeping Men From Work
Washington, July 1. (By A. P.)
The senate was token to task to
day by Senator Norris, republican,
Nebraska, for concurring in the
house amcnrinfnt to the army bill
delaying until October 1. beginning
of new wrok on the Wilson dam
at Muscle Shoals, Ala.
In a brief speech, he reminded the
senate that its original proposol
would have permitted 1 000 or more
men to have begun work today, and
declared its confirmation of . the
house action meant another yearr
delay of work on the project and
prevention of idle laborers in the
south from obtaining employment.
The senate's originol proposal.
Senator Norris asserted, also would
have saved "a couple or more mil
lion dollars for the taxpayers" as
well as preventing the "great fer.
tilizer trust" from "hammering down
for another year" the Alabamo
farmers and continuing, during that
time, the "domination over the
downtrodden farmers of America."
The Nebraska senator attributed
the senote's action in yielding to the
house, to a "great propaganda" that
"carried it off its feet," and said it
yielded because of a "combination of
men who were afraid "Henry Ford's
offer might be lost and becauseof
"men who did not want anything
done." The senote rollcall, he said,
showed the former group was "as
sisted by every millionaire in the

ator Norris continued. "It is the
day when, had it not been for the

Cork. July l.-(By A. P.)-There
seems good reason to believe that the
republican forces are mobilising this
evening preparatory to a move to
take possession of the city and oc
cupy strategic points. Several build

are indicated as likely to be taken
over by the insurgents.

tion issued late last night. All of
them were wounded, 30 of them
severely. Nobody was killed by the
explosion, which, the communica
tion charges, was caused by the ir
regulars setting off a mine in the
basement of the central hall.
The provisional free state govern
ment turned today to the task of
clearing out the remaining nests of
insurgents, following the fall of the
Four Courts, the chief stronghold
of the anti-treaty forces.
The surrender this morning of
more than 50 rebels who had been
holding out in the Capel street area
was hailed as evidence , that the
morale of the republicans had been
weakened by the yielding of Rory
O'Connor and Liam Melfowes, two
of their strongest fighting leaders.

The plan of action against the
irregulars, who have established
themselves in hotels and other prem
ises, will probably assume the form
of an encircling movement with in
tense fields of action in certain areas.
The total casualties in the three
days' fighting have not yet been as
certained, but it is estimated they
will not greatly exceed 100, the fatali
ties being placed at about 40.
Trouble Brewing in South.
London, July 1. (By A. P.) Re

Trouble is believed to be .brewing
in the south.
Republican sympathies are noto
riously widespread in "rebel Cork"

publicans there rally in arms against

to the charges, alleged that the other
members of the commission, particu

had not conducted the affairs of the
body along economical lines. He
filed with the president, it was un
derstood, a series of charges against
Mr. Collier and those members who
joined with the commissioner gen

the charges were referred to the
State department for study.
Mr. Harrison's resignation was
presented to thepresident along with
the charges he filed.
