WASHINGTON. June 10. --Time and time
again today Senator DoUiver and eight or
nine others of the no-railed "progressive"
republican went down to defeat In tlielr
efforta to break the ranks of the Aldrirh
forces on the wool sctfedule of the tariff
bill. Henator Dolliver occupied the floor
Jh greater part of. the day and offered
numerous amendments looking- to the re
duction of the finance committee rates,
but In each Instance the amendments were
voted down and the ccrrmtttee sustained.
The first of Mr. Dolllver's suggestions
haA for Its' object the confining- to the
wool In them or the duty on o-called
yarns which are only part wool, and after
considerable spirited discussion. In which
Messrs. Dolliver and Warren were the
principal participants, the amendment wan
defeated by a vote of tl to 43. (in ths
course of the debate Mr. Warren con
tended that the object of this provision
van to prevont the Importation of cheap

from Mr.- Dolliver that there might be
some per pie who would be benefited by
having cheap cloths brought In from
One Democrat for Hlak fotr.
On this vote Mr. Dolliver was supported
by Senators Beverldge, Brtstow, Brown
Burkett, Clapp, Cummins, LaFollette and
Nelson, while Senator McBnery of Louis
iana was the only democratic senator wh
voted with the republican against the pro
Many of Mr. Dolllver's amendments were
along the same llnea as the first and were
Intended to carry out the principle that In
fixing a duty on mixed cloths It should be
applicable only to the wools In the cloths
Senator Aldrlch objected on the ground
that It would be Impossible t determine
the prqportion of the constituents In such
article and that therefore the provision

Klnley tariff bill of 18S8, but the Rhode
Island .senator refused to accept It, saying
the conditions were entirely different now
from what thev were In those days.
Ia the course of a discussion between
Henators Aldrlcrr and Owen on the duty
on blankets, the fact was brought out that
blankets paid at the rate of 180 per rent
ad valorem, Ir. this connection the chair
man of the finance committee was given
an opportunity to accept a general pro
vision, prohibiting any rates In the schedule
above 100 per cent, but he declined to do so
because, as he said, It might let In foreign

prices of wool tyer Indulged In by Senators
McLaurln. Warren and Heyburn.
"I have no personal Interest In this legis
lation," declared Mr. McLaurln, during a
colloquy with Mr. Warren.
The debate throughout the day was good
natured and Mr. Dolliver discussed polka
dots, corn plasters, home mottoes and
kindred subjects with much humor. He
seemed to have real feeling over the pos
sible tears In the eyes of the Irish potato.
The wool schedule occupied the attention
of the sonata throughout the. entire day

proposed Income tax. which had been set
for today, was postponed until tomorrow.
At t:N p. m, the senate took a rscess

statement by Mr. McCumber, a member
of the finance committee, by which he
sought to show that the loner cost of
manufacturing woolen cloth abroad as com

her loss In weight was becoming. Mrs.
Gould were mourning for her father.
She seemed nervous at times under the
strain of cross-examination, when the
questions led her to the early days of her
married life, but so far as the presence
of her husband was concerned she seemed
not to know he was In the same room, al
though he sat but a few feet fiom her
throughout the days' session.
The hearing before justice Dowllng Is
the culmination of a case that began In
May, 1307. Mrs. Gould slleges that her
husband deserted her without Just cause on
July Ifl, 190S. Howard Gould answers that
his Justification was the habits of the
plaintiff; that since he left her he has
made her an allowance of $25,000 a year,
but that she Is extravagant, intemperate
and has been guilty of misconduct. The
wife denies the charges and asks for an
allowance of $120,000 a year to enable her
to live In the manner to which her hus
band had accustomed her.'
"During the years that you were living
at Castle Gould," asked Clarence Shearn,
Mra. Gould's counsel, "how large an estab

"From fifteen to eighteen servants In the
house, from ten to twelve around the estate
and eighteen or twenty gardeners," an

In answer to questions she rattled off the
amounts her husband had allowed her
month by month. They averaged about
110.000. She kept two bank account one

account I find," said Delancey Nlnoll, coun

paid you $776,000."

asked If her expenditures at Castle Gould

"Yes," she said, "everything."
Testimony to show the manner of life

WASHINGTON. June 10. The apprecia
tion, good will and congratulations of the
Amerlran people were today extended to
Wilbur and Orvllle Wright, the American
aviators, by the president of the United
The occasion was the presentation of tht
gold medal awarded to the Wright
brothers by the Aero club of America to
commemorate the conquest of the air. In
the presence of distinguished statesmen,
foreign diplomats, members of the cabinet,
noted scientists and prominent aeronauts
and aviators, the two inventor of the first
successful flying machine,' heavier than
air. received the first public 'recognition
of their achievements from their fellow
countrymen. ' 1 .
President Taft, In handing the medal to
the brothers, expressed keen admiration
for their work. He ventured the belief
that their flying machine will be the basis
for the future aerial craft and made the
piophesy (hat the dawn of the age of flight
Is here. The Wrights were Introduced to
the president by Representative Herbert
Parsons of New York, who paid a glowing
tribute to their personal qualification. A.
Holland Forbes, winner of the recent na
tional balloon race, and acting president
of the Aero club of America, turned the
medals over to the president on behalf of
the aero club.
President Taft Speaks.
In presenting the medals to the Wright
brother President Taft said in part: "1
esteem it a great honor and an opportunity
to present these medals to you as an evi
dence of what you have done. I am glad,
perhaps at a delayed hour, to show that
In America it is not true that a 'prophet
Is not without honor save In hi own coun
try.' It 1 especially gratifying thus to
note a great discovery in human economy
by paying honor to men who bear it as
modestly. You made this discovery by a
course that we of America, litte to fee Is
distinctly American, ny keeping your nose
right at the Job until you had accomplished
what you had determined to do.
"It has been said that this is the first
presidential recognition of aeronautics since
President Washington.' Well, all I have
to say is hat I had a predecessor, who, if
aeronautic had proceeded aa far when he
left office a they have today, would not
only have gone down under the water In
a submarine boat, but would have gone up
into the air in a flying machine. No one
had a more earnest Interest and a greater
desire to see into the thing that make for
progress than my predecessor.
"There may be some reason why some
president have not figured in aeronautic.
I see that these gentlemen who have flown
in the air are constructed more on the
plan of the brida than some of u.
"I don't like to think, and I decline to
think, that these Instrumentalities that you
have Invented for human use are to be
confined In their utility to war. I presume
thaf they wlIK have great value In war,
aad I suppose that all of us representatives
of the various government ought to look
at this matter, following the rule of gov
ernments of today, from the standpoint
of their utility In war, but I sincerely hope
that these machines will be Increased In
usefulness to such a point that even those
of us who now look at them aa not for us
may oount on their ability to carry more
than 'thin' passengers in time of peaoe.
Many great discoveries have com by

have happened on a truth that developed

After being Introduced by Father Doyle,
who referred to the president, quoting an

He spoke principally of the work of set

caused by the close relationship there of

opinion that In the end the church would

church In this country."

Referring to the final settlement of the

Board Report to Congress Project
Would Cost $128,000,000 to Build.
GENERAL - MARSHALL CONCURS
Believed that the Action of Board
Will Pnt Qolrtna on the Foar-teen-Foot
Channel Plan for
WASHINGTON, June 10 The proposed
fourteen feet deep water project from St.
Lout to the gulf received a blow today when
the board engineer reported to congress
that uch a waterway Is not desirable.
The waterway would cost $128,000,000 for
construction - and $6,000,000 annually for
maintenance, the engineers say. '
The report was based on a survey of
the Mississippi river by a special board
of engineers, created by act of congress.
The conclusions reached by both the spe
cial board and the regular board of engi
neer are practically the same.
It is claimed that the present demands of
commerce between St. Louis and the gulf
will be adequately met by an eight-foot
channel, from St. Louts to the mouth of
the Ohio and a channel of not less than
nine feet below the mouth of the Ohio.
The board' belief I that an eight-foot
channel from Chicago to St. Louis cor
responding with the present eight-foot pro
ject from St. Louis to Cairo Is the least
that would adequately meet the demands
of commerce. It adds that such water
ways would be desirable provided the cost
were 'reasonable. Present and prospective
demands -of commeroe betwen Chicago and
the gulf would be adequately served, the
board reports, by a through nine-foot chan
nel to the gulf, Estimates for these chan
nels have not been completed, but are
promised by congress by next December.
General Marshall, chief of engineer, In
formed congress In transmitting the report
that he could not state definitely whether
either of those channel wa desirable until
after accurate estimate were made.
The special board found that, by mean
of constant dredging, a depth of eight feet
la now practically maintained In the chan
nel from St. Loula to Cairo, and of nine
feet from Ca,lro to the gulf. River regular
Ixatlon Is counted on by the board 'to
make permanent an eight-foot channel
from St. Louis to Cairo. By dredging a
fourteen-foot channel may be obtained.
This board rejected a opposed to all rea
son all propositions requiring the abandon
ment of the already good river navigation
or the substitution of a lateral canal for
