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 rlothH, but this was met by a suggestion from Mr.- Dolliver that there might be some per pie who would be benefited by having cheap cloths brought In from abroad. ' 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 vision. ' 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 wan Itjipiactlrahl.

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 woolen manufacturers.

"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 enA on thli account consideration of the proposed Income tax. which had been set for today, was postponed until tomorrow. At t:N p. m, the senate took a rscess until I o'clock. Ihe night session was begun with a 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 pared with. the cost In this country Just about equals the Import duties. Gore Satirises Seas tors. Mr. Oore delivered a satire upon explana tions, by Mestrs. Warren, Carter and Sn.out In defense of the senate woolen tchrdule, greatly to the amusement of his lolleugues. Twenty-eight amendment making ad x sin em rat ss' for the various classes of wi-ol and woolen goods were Introduced by Mr. LaFollette. They were In harmony with views expressed by him In his speocn ytsterday and he asked that all be. voted upon at one time. Mr. LaFollette explained that his amendments were Intended to combine the present classes one and two Into on class and to fix the rate upon this e I at 46 per cent ad valorem and to make what Is now clars three dutiable at S per cent ad valorem. lt.au Works Elevea Atlanta.

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 lishment did you have?"

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 a Mrs. Gould account and one a Katherlne Gould account. "In the eight years of the Howard Gould account I find," said Delancey Nlnoll, coun sel for the husband, "that It totals S77i, S0. Is that correct?" "I think so." ' Mr. Gould -says that all those years he paid you $776,000." "I gave him credit for ,more," was the lmperturbed comment. Mrs. Gould varied her answers when asked If her expenditures at Castle Gould Included any liquors. "Yes," she said, "everything." Testimony to show the manner of life In which the witness was accustomed to live was further adduced by counsel. She showed even eagerness to co-operate, and told with evident relish of the magnificent yacht Niagara, with its crew of eighty men.

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 accident. Men working in one direction have happened on a truth that developed ltsrlf Into a great discovery, but you gen tlemen have Illustrated the other and on ' the whole much more commendable method. "I. congratulate you on the result. I con gratulate you on the recognition you have received from all the crowned heads of Europe, and I congratulate you that In receiving It you maintained the modest and dignified demeanor worthy of Ameri can cittxenship." Miss Catherine WHght, slater of the aeroplanlsts, accompanied her , brothers, and was quite a much lionised.

"But I venture to say," added the presi dent, referring to his visit to Pope Leo XIII and the settlement of the ohurch problem, "that forty year ago it would have sunk any administration 'responsible for it, which only goes to show that thl country is, broad enough for all denomina tion to work together for the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man and for all of us to live here a American citizen and that we should make no in vidious distinctions in election because of religious belief." He said that there is now no question to be settled in the Philippine concerning the relation of church and government.

GENERAL - MARSHALL CONCURS Believed that the Action of Board Will Pnt Qolrtna on the Foar-teen-Foot Channel Plan for the Present. 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 any part of the river belbw Cairo.

I have seen rrum 1.200 to 1.600 pounds of lard spilled on the floor, and which ran down Into an open sewer In the floor, the sewer outlet being quickly blocked and said lard taken up from the floor and out of the sewer, both of which were unclean and unsanitary from walking over and the sputum and filth which naturally find Ha way Into any sewer.

"These are all permitted by those In charge.
