Sept. 19. (Special Tele
gram.) The excitement over Speaker Hen
derson's declination to again stand for con
gress In the Third Iowa district has sub
sided. Instead of Henderson's withdrawal
hurting them, some of the leaders believe
it will prove advantageous In the end. They
assert that It will have a tendency to bring
about a more definite understanding as to
the republican position on the tariff ques
tlon and they look for a keener accentua
tlon of the difference between the anti
trust policy of the two parties and the
managers believe that when the distinction
is sharply drawn the people will decide
against free trade as a remedy for trusts.
There was current today a story that the
reason Speaker Henderson declined to stand
for re-election was due to his belief that

WASHINGTON, Sept. 19. Secretary Root
has approved the findings and recommenda

tests and report upon the value of disap
pearing gun carriages for seacoae-t de
fenses. Colonel Wallace F. Randolph, chief of ar
tillery, was president of the board, which
is composed of artillery, ordnance and
navy officers and one clvilain member. The
board Is unanimous In recommending the
continuance of the maufacture of disap
pearing gun carriages for eight-Inch, ten
Inch and twelve-Inch guns, without regard
to low sites.
It recommends that no more six-Inch
guns be mounted on disappearing carriage,
as the development of rapid-fire, slx-lnrh
guns has made it essential that they should
be mounted on barbette carriages. The
board recommends increased allowances In
order that expert mechanics may be In

given to gunners, who are the only men
serving who are much exposed, by pro
