W ASHINGTON, June After two' or
three mora speeches on the conference re
port ro the railroad rat bill, the aenate
today tent the bill back to conference,
(tain designating Senator Tillman, Elklns
and Cullom confere. During the day
the naval appropriation bill, which ha been
in conferen'.-e for eeveral week, w finally
panned, the eenat receding from It mnd
mert concerning th naval training station
at Port Royal, 8. C, which wa the only
Item remaining In controversy. The mot
Interesting incident wa a conflict over a
motion by 8enator La Toilette to enter
pon the consideration of the bill limiting
sixteen hours the time railroad em-
nye engaged In the movement of train
may be employed consecutively. There
great difficulty In securing a voting quorum,
but the requisite number ultimately wa
obtained. Sevri speeches were made on
the bill: Th senate adjourned at 4:35 p. in.
until Jl o'clock tomorrow.
Debate on Pipe Line lection
When the conference report on the rail
road rate bill wss tnken up In the senate
today Senator Elklns, who wa one of the
senate conferees, spoke on the amendment
to the commodity provision using the word
"railroad" Instead of the phrase "common
carrier." He gave Immediate attention to
the contention that the change 4as the
effect of eliminating pipe lines from the re
quliement of the bill. He said that West
Virginia Is the largest oil producer In the
union and that the greater part of the oil
Is sold to the pipe line owners, so that the
owner transport their own oil and are not,
'..peaking, common carriers.
Benelor Long spoke at some length on the
I pips line amendment and In doing so dealt j
Vi. with the Kansas oil legislation. That atate I
had declared pipe lines' common carriers I policies written In France, the Mutual

f There had bn no effort In Kansas to pro-
hihlt the pipe lines from transporting their :
own products because It-was known tliut
the effect would be disastrous to the Imle-
pendent npersrers. All th protests be had

legislation had not been Ineffectual. Thy
had fovnd a state rr finery to be the most
affective remedy they had resorted to. He
also stated that the agitation In that state
had the effect nf Increasing the number of

It through It lines held by that company

In Ms own section th legislation would
be especially disastrous because many nf

where the richest oil wells ar located,

Ishsm Randolph, chief engineer of the

J. L. Wellnr of the Canadian IVpartment
of Railways and Canals expressed the
opinion that the water In the Welland
canal would be lowered from four to seven
Inches, which -ould prove disastrous.
"We have barely sufficient water there
now," said the speaker, "and have Just
spent to get a fourteen-foot chan
nel. The fit. Ijiwrence canals would be
even more affected."
President Livingstone of the Lake Car
riers' association said he believed In giv

Fran representing the Canadian
marine ' voiced the sentiments of
Mr. Livlt, except that he would not
go so far i 'tm 'ting to give Chicago all

"We claim ' vested rights In the

elated todsy. nof only over the passage of
the omnibus public building bill, but he
caese the appropriation for Kearney
provides for both the purchase of a site
and the erection of a building. Heretofore
It has been the rule of the committee
on public buildings and grounds that It
would not appropriate outright for a site
and bulliling, but would make an appro
priation for a site first and then building
afterward. Judge Kinkaid. however, in
sisted that because a wrong was perpe
trated. It should not Insist on the continu
ance of the wrong, and by his argument
before the committee and by discussing tin-
matter with Individual members he flnslly
secured the appropriation for a site and
building for . a poatofflce and court house
at Kearney, which he considers an Indl
vldusl triumph.

and Cheer HI Brief
Kdward Rosewater and his wife, daugh
ter and granddaughter reached Omaha
) i-sterdH.v, re'ui i.liig from Rome, where he
served as one of the delegates from the
t'nlted States to th Universal Postal Con
greea rerently held there. Mr. Rosewater
is in remarkably good heslth, nd tlie
whole party semed to hsvt stood th trip
very well.
During the afternoon Mr. Rosewater was
aelcomed home by the emploves of The
Uee Publishing company and the Bee Build
ing company. A reception waa held In the
court room on the top floor of the Bee
building, where Mr. T. F. Sturgess presided.
Mr. Sturgess, In calling the meeting to or
der, said:
We are here for the purpose of welcoming
our employer. Hon. r:ilwsrri ttosewaier. i
wish to say to Mr. Rosewater that several
weekvs sgo the employes of The Bee, from
whst they knew of you snd out of admira
tion for you .is a mnn and a cl'lien of Ne
braska, conceived the Idea of forming nn
organisation to help vour candidacy for
the United States senate. 'At that time
we did not know that you would be willing
to make the race, but wned to be flrat
In the field to give expression to our feel
ings In this matter.
It la not necessary for me to say sny
Ihlng in welcoming Mr. Rosewater home,
and as to our estimate of the man more
than this:
Mr. Rosewater, we feel that we are not
only welcoming you as our employer, but as
our friend. That all who have been asso
clated'wlth you, either as sn employe of
The Bee Building company or The Beo
Publishing company, have at all tlmea felt
free to go to you as a friend. That we
could go anywhere and meet you and you
would receive us, not aa an employe, but
as a friend. And we ere here tonight as
your friend, willing and anxious to do
what we ran to help you reach the United
States senate. We believe, and we believe
the people generally regard you aa the
best-enulpped man In this state to meet
the Issues of the hour and the great prob
lems that confront us ss a people. You
hsve the unanimous support of every em
plove of The Bee who is a voter, and I
know, after your long absence, we mould
all like very much to hear a few worda
from you at this time.
Mr. Rosewater' Response.
,Mr. Rosewater responded briefly as fol
lows: "Mr. Sturgess, Gentlemen and Friends: I
feel more than grateful for the enthusi
astic reception you have tendered me here
on my return 'after a long absence. But,
1 want to reiterate what I have so often
said before, that I do not believe any man
who works for wages owes his employer
anything If he does his work well. When
it cornea to a question of politics, to the
political preferment of the American cltl
aen. nothing should Intervene between a
man and his conscientious discharge of his
duty a a citlsen of the United State to
choose who he believes honestly and con
scientiously to be the best qualified to rep
resent, not only his pwn interest, but that
of tb commonwealth. . And I might say
that I have preached that doctrine for
more than thirty years While I hav
preached It as applying to others. It should
apply with equal force to myself.
"I have at all times been opposed to
the coercion of employes by employers. It
Is their right and duty to vote as their
conscience dictates. I wish to say that
if any employe of the Bee Building com
pany or the Bee Publishing company doe
not feel that I am the proper person, I
would not want him to support me, and
would not want him to do anything to pro
mote my candidacy. As a matter of fact,
however, this candidacy has been sprung
upon me almost without any premonition.
When I left here nearly four months ago
I hsd said to my friends, and I have writ
ten it to friends urging me to have my
name announced, that I had grave doubts
whether the time had come for me to pro
ject myself Into this race.
Donglns Mnst Be t'nanljnoos.
"Ypu doubtless realize that even with
the unanimous cholcs of Douglas county,
there Is still going to be quite a contest
before us In Nebraska before Omaha gets
the aenatorahlp again. And I dotibt very
seriously anybody can be senator In Omaha
and Douglas county who does not go to
Lincoln with practically a solid delegation.
The people will naturally say that It Is for
Douglas county to come unanimously for

Heavy Rain Floods Streets nnd Kara

The hesvlret rain of the season, for the
time It lasted, began ahout 0 o'clock Hst
night snd Tr shout sn hour and a hnif
the water came down In tirrent. The
streets In the northern rrt of the cltv
were filled from curb to curb with roaring
torrents, and at Spencer and Twenty-fourth
and Patrick and Twenty-fourth streets the
wster was over two feet deep. Numerous
cellars and basements In those vicinities
were flooded, snd near Patrick street sev
eral houses lying In the low ground at the
esst side of Twenty-fourth were flooded
snd the occupants were driven out, some
of them taking refuge on the shed roofs
adjoining their houses. Several stn-et cara
were placed' hut of commission by the
water covering the motors. This same
trouble occurred at Twenty-fourth and
Cuming and at Cuming snd Sixteenth
streets. The sewers were unabl to carry
off the sudden volume of water, and Six
teenth from Capitol avenue to Cuming
street was a veritable river. The street
cars were blockaded by h'.irned or drnwned
out motors and had to be pushed along by
cars still In service until the flooded street
was passed.
Hundreds of 'persons were compelled to
stand on street corners waiting far beyond
the regular time for tars to come to take
them home. Nearly every doorway and
corner had Its group of patient, suffering.
waiting passengers, who In some cases
kept up the vlgll for fifteen minutes and
even more before a car would come, by
which time most of them were more or
less soaked with water.
The electric lights were knocked out two
or three times by the heavy electrical storm
prevailing, and from nil parts of tho city
cornea the story of flooded basemertts and
cellars. From two to three feet of water
collected In building excavatlona, doing con-
aiilerable damage, and will necessitate con

Great Western Hefners Reqnest front
Other Railroads to Continue
Elevntor Chnrges.
BT. PAUL. June 2C. A delegation of
officials from the Rock Island and Santa
Fe railroads, who in reality represented
a number of western lines operating be
tween Chicago and the Missouri river,
called on President A. B. Stickney of the
Chicago. Great. Western at his office todsy,
urging him to withdraw what they called
a reduction in the grain rates.
Mr. Stickney refused to recede trim the
position he took last week when hi ordered
the elevation charge discontinued.
President Stickney recently ordered that
the elevator rebate of l1 cents per 100
pounds on grain shipped through elevstors
be discontinued on the Great Western.
Some, If not all, of the other western roads
were In favor of cutting nut the rebates
and leaving the published schedules as be
fore. They called Mr. ' Stickney s action a
reduction In the rates. Mr. Stickney met
their contention with the following state
ment: The Chicago Great Western has made no
cut on ratea on grain west of the Missouri
river. It has made no reduction of tho
rate est of the Missouri river. Hereto
fore the tariffs have named certain rates
and provided that l1 cents should be re
paid from this rate to shippers.
The Chicago Great Western has simply
rhsnged the form of this tariff and named
the net rates which have been collected
heretofore and provided that nothing shall
be paid back, leaving the actual rats ex
actly the same as before.
Th other roads hsve decided to abolish
the custom of retaining 14 cents and leave
the nominal ratea the ssme as before,
which Is equlvslent to raising the rate m
cents per 100.
There are S.OMJ.Omi bushels of grain In
store In the elevstors at Omaha alone
which haa been bought on the, basis of the
present rstes. To raise the rate 1V cents
per I 'JO would be equivalent to Imposing an
unexpected burden on the purchasers of
this grain of U2.D00, which the Chicago
Great Western company does not regard as
a squsre deal, and therefore refuses to
consent to such an advance In rates.

Metropolis I Shocked.
Not since the killing of James Flsk. Jr.,
by Edward 8. Stokes on the stslrcase of the
Grand Central hotel, more than thirty
years ago, has the metropolis been shocked
by so startling and dramatic s tragedy as
that which waa enacted last night In th
presence of an audience of more than 1.000
persons In the roof thester of Msdlson
Square Garden. Not the least drama'tc
feature of th tragedy Is the fact that Mr.
White met his death In the structure which
is perhaps the moat conspicuous memorial
of his architectural genius.
Rarely hss the case against any prisoner
moved with more rapidity than did the
proceedings today, which ended In Thaw's
formal committment to the Tombs. Ssve
in this unusual snd almost frensled haste
the routine followed and the treatment ac
corded to Thaw differed In no respect from
thst meted out to any prisoner charged
with a capital offense. Roused early thla
morning from his cell In the West Thir
tieth street station house, Thaw, attired in
fresh clothing brought to him by his valet, .
waa shackled, In spite of hi protestations,
to a detective and taken in the patrol
wagon to polio headquarters. There, after
awaiting his turn in the long line of petty
criminals arrested during th night, he wss
photographed and hia measurement taken
on the Hertlllon system. Again, In the pa
trol wagon, he was tsken to the crlminsl
court building, where grest multitude i
gathered to catch a passing glimpse of him,
and was arraigned In the police court. There
the proceedings were of the briefest, anl
after the bare formality of arraignment
had been undergone Thaw waa remanded to
the custody of the coroner and on his order
committed to the Tombs to swalt ths re
sult of the Inquest, which was set for
Thaw Not Excited.
Throughout the proceedings Thaw showed
little evidence of agitation except when the
detective approached him in the station
house to put the handcuffs to his wrist.
Then he protested vehemently, but on being
assured that this waa the invariable prac
tice he submitted without further words.
While leaving the station house and even In
the court roo n he waa compelled to run the
gauntlet of butteries of cameras, from
which he shielded himself as well aa he
could by covering his face with his un
shackeled hand. Thaw was registered at
the Tombs as "Harry Thaw, bom In the
United States, 38 years old, student," and
wss assigned to cell 220 on the seoond tier.
Shortly after his arrival he was visited In
his cell by Dr. Austin Flint. Ir. Carlos F.
MacDonald and Dr. Mahon, on behalf. It
was said, of the district attorney's office,
and by Dr. Magulre, the tomb phystrlsn.
who was requested to make an examination
of the prisoner s mental condition by coun
sel for the defense. Drs. MacDonald and
Flint later refused to say anything, but
Dr. Magulre said he believed he discovered
symptoms of emotional Insanity and pos
sible Indications of Incipient paresis. The
alienists will make a further examination
of the prisoner tomorrow, Dr. Magulre
meantime keeping him under observation.
Dr. Msgulre said that Thaw's physical con
dition was almost perfect and hi appetite
