claring a thirty-day amnesty period, during
. which the Insurrectionists are Invited to lay
down their arma and return to their peacs-

All the liberals', would Insist, under any
circumstances upon a general amnesty for
all rebels. The government at this stage,
does not think of . considering any of these
uggested ' proposals, the - fact is that the
palace officials were today in a most hope

have yet been made that are at all likely
to be considered before the government
suffers some serious reverse and probably

All discussion of this rort , leads Inevit

Does Rot tatead to Ask Party for no
Indoreeaaent and Has Hope It
Will Xot Condenaa HI
Action. V
WASHINGTON, Aug. , z. Senator For-
aker today, in an Interview, discussed the
political situation in Ohio, devoting con
siderable attention to' the probable action
of the approaching republican convention
In that state. with respect to those of the
congressional delegation who had differed
from th president on some matter of legis
lation. . He, tald:, -
"I am sorry to learn- that the republicans
of Ohio ar having some sharp contro
versies, but th subjects "of difference do
not seem to me very Important. I can
not think,,, therefor, -that there is likely
to be any serious injury done to the party,
whatever may happen to lndlvlduala.
"So . far aa' endorsing ma It concerned,
that la not Important to anybody except
myself, and ' I thall try to accept with
equanimity whatever may be . th action
of tb convention. -It Is true I opposed
the president' policy aa embodied In the
Hepburn bill, but not, at it la commonly
stated In the newspapers, because I was
opposed to governmental regulation and
supervision of railroads, for the . record
will show 'that . I have done, as much In
that behalf as any other Ohio man In con
gress, but because 1 thought the Hepburn
bill unwise, unjust and unconstitutional.. -
."My contention was' that, under existing
law, which helped enact, having been a
member of th sub-committee that, framed
It, especially If amended as It should be,
very serious wrpng ,f every kind prac
ticed by the railroads can be remedied and
that all evil practice can ba broken up,
a nearly aa law will enable U to break
them up.1.
"Everything I said m that respect has
been already fully . Justified and vindicated
by th many ' successes the attorney gen
eral ha met with In the numerous pros
ecutions he has Instituted In the last nine
months, until which time long after the
debate commenced, no one seemed to real
ise, not even the. government's own of
ficials the excellence of the laws we al
ready had. .
. Old Lawa Applicable. ' "
"Exlatlng laws have been found, accord
ing to ' the Judgment rendered . In these
proceedings, to apply to every kind of re
bate, or discrimination between Individuals
or localities, no matter under what name,
form or guise praotlcod that anybody ha
yet complained about.'
"When somebody finds torn evil practice
that existing lawa do not forbid and pro
vide an expeditious remedy against ' and
heavy punishment ' for. I may change my
mind aa to the oorrectneRa of my action-'
a to whthr ft waa wla or not,, but not
until than. ... . ..
' ."This la a greet subject.; full of trouble
some questions, both' of law and. of policy.
4hoAranhot -to property - disowns a a,.' iav aa
mtervlew. ' Excepting the rate bill, I sup
ported the president aa' to ' every other
meaaur he urged upon, congress - except
only Joint statehood for Arlaona and New
Mexico. I opposed that except on con
dition - they should ' b allowed . to deter,
min by' vote In each territory 'whether'
tbey wanted Joint atatehood. ', I think th
groat majority of the -people were opposed
to the idea of' the president forcing Joint
statehood upon thee territories against
their protect. ... ..
"But, however this may be, aa to myself
I shall not . make any request of the oon
ventlon nor any complaints as to It action
whatever that may be; but I cannot for
bear suggesting In this connection that 1f
th convention should try to conform to
th rule prescribed by Mr. Burton of en
dorsing 'less cordially' than th president
those who may have differed from the
president at to some matter no matter
how honestly tt would have tome hard
problem to oilv."
Cite gaaao Examples.
"For Instance, If Senator Dick I to be
endorsed 'less cordially' than the president
because he did not agree with the president
about the PhJMp-me tariff bill, what Is
the convention to do aa to General Kelfer
and the tlx other distinguished Ohio re
publican members of congress who Joined
with that sturdy old veteran In oppoalng
and voting against th president as to that
measure one of them, Mr. Nevln, who rep
' resents the district In which the convention
will be held? Are they also to be 'par
tially rebuked' by endorsing them 'lees cor
dially' than the president and their' col
league who voted with the president T -
"And how about Mr. Burton himself?
Would he not be 'hoist by his own petard?'
Does he not now and than klck over the
traces' and differ from, the president and
from his party? Is he to be endorsed lest
cordially' than the president because he
ha opposed th president' policy of In--creasing
th navy? It not th navy, so to
speak, the ' apple of th president's eye
the biggest of hit big sticks and are not
the people with the president aa . to hit
naval policy by an overwhelming majority?
"Take another case. The president and
Secretary Taft made known to congress at
the last session that unless we restricted
them to America they would go abroad to
purchase supplies and material to be used
In the eonstruotlon of the Panama canal
when they could buy them cheaper abroad,
thus saving money on the purchase, and aa
they were to be used In Panama and not
brought Into the United States, saving th
tariff duty besides.
"I think I may aafely aay that with a
great majority of th American people this
, proposition was not popular.- Certainly, to
republican genefaiiy It Rsd inoou
tlstent with all we have been contending
for with reepeot to a protective tariff.
JostlSo th Action. .
"Th Idea of constructing th most ma
Jeatlo work In progToaa In all tb world, tb
greatest ever undertaken by any nation, a
purely American eotarprtse, to b built by
Americana and paid for by American
money, and going abroad to buy material
and suppii. thus giving patronage to for
eign manufacturer and giving employment
to foreign labor Instead of buying In Amer
ica, from Americana, and giving all these
advantage to our own people, seemed ao
unpatriotic and, under the droumatancea,
so Indefenalbl. that congress adopted a
resolution prohibiting It except in case.
If there should be any tuch, where the
president might deem It necessary to do ao
to escap extortion.
"In the senate 'hla resolution received the
aupport of every republican. In the house
It waa supported by the vote of every Ohio
republican except the vote of Mr. Burton.
He voted 'no.' .

BAN FRANCISCO. Aug. . With th
exception of the California and Geary
treet lines street railway traffic In this
clt was suspended today at th result of
strike, of the conductors and motormen of
the United Railway system, which went
Into effect at I o'clock this morning. The
United Runways mad no attempt to run
cars and consequently there waa no disor
der. Farther action In th tie-up awaits
the arrival of Patrick Calhoun, president
of the United Railroads, who la en route
from the east and who Is expected to ar
rive tonight. Automobiles and other vehi
cles have been brought Into requisition,
and they did a good business.
Although the California and Geary atreet
lines were In operation, their limited
equipment was Inadequate. The employe
of these two lines will not be 'called out,
but they expect their employers to follow
the lead of the large company In any
change that may be made in the wage
scale.' ' .
The action of the union waa taken at I
o'clock thli morning at a mass meeting
of the car men's union to enforce the de
mands of $3' a day and a work dsy of
eight hours made upon the company last
Sunday. This action of the car men was
taken . In spite of the efforts of Mayor
Schmlts during the past two days to avert
the strike.
In reply to the demands sent to the com
pany laat Sunday Thornwall Mullaley
answered that he waa powerless to act In
the absence of President Calhoun and re
quested the union to wait the letter's ar
rival, when a directors' meeting would be
called and a definite reply be given the
men. Several communication paaaed be
tween the company and the car men, re
sulting In -an ultimatum from the latter
Tuesday that th company must make
definite reply not later than Friday after
noon. Mr. Mullaley tent a letter to the
union Friday, again asking the union to
postpone action until the arrival of Presi
dent Calhoun, who would be in the city
today. The car men, however, apparently
thought that the United Railway waa only
sparring for time, and report wer circu
lated that the company waa constructing
barrack 'for what the car ron believed
was Intended for strike-breaker. ,
