An effort will be made, by the losing law

Practically the entire day waa taken up
with the dlsouaslon of one phase of the
case whether the state bad a right to limit
the business of banking to corporations,
Judge Albert and C. O. Whedon contend
ing that It did have the light. John I
Webster'closed the argument for the plain
Jar' Asian, ueatloma.
Judge Vandeventer frequently Inter
rupted the lawyers with questions, and
on one occasion he aaked the attorney to
underatand that the question waa no In
dication of bla own conclusion Id the mate
. ter. The questions were aaked, he aald,
' to secure as much light as possible.
In discussing the right of the state to
prohibit a private bank. Judge Albert ar
, gued that the Individual was not oon-
- cerned, lor the reaaon that the individual
, beuame a quasi publlo Institution when he
became a banker and therefore the law
did not deal with the individual Ubertlea
Judge . Vandeventer, In endeavoring to
i gat Judge Albert to aay whether the state
i had just aa much right to deal with the
! Individual aa It had to deal with the oor-
' porauon, unaity uin u juuga Aiutin
' believed the state had the right to eend
. Its Inspectors Into a grocery store under
the pure food law to make inspections.
Judge Albert would not deny the state
. this right, though he did tell the court
that the continual and persistent passage
of such lawa would eventually deprive
'. the individual of the rights given him un
der the constitution.
The main points of Judge Albert's argu
: roent waa the right of the atate to limit tha
! banking business to corporations by epe
i clfylng that private bankera would have
Mr. Whclaa't Arsraasent.
C. O. Whedon, arguing along tha same
lines about the right of the state to limit
the banking business to a corporation, told
of the limits placed upon Individual liber-
ties by saying that when a person pursues
happlneaa by hunting and fishing en Sun
day the aharlff pursuee him. Judge Van
. deventer Informed Mr, Whedon this was
. not a good illustration because tha tlsh and
, the game belonged to the atate, and the
! state had a right to designate the season
, when they should be killed.
Then Mr. Whedon changed hta llluatra
tion by saying when a farmer pursues hap-
I plneaa by plowing In his fields oo Sundays
, the sheriff pursueee him under the state
law prohibiting common labor on the first
' day ef the week.
"Tou don't mean to say It would re
quire a statute to prevent you from plow
ing on Sunday," aald the Judge with a
j smile, but Mr, Whedon failed to eee any
humor In the. situation and did not Join
ia the smile wbleta want over the court
Mr. Whedon then argued that the new
law did not prohibit tha Individual from
engaging In the banking business, but it
did prescribe certain rulee for him to
fullew before he eould engage in such bual
neaa. The state, he aald, had a right to pre
vent a person engaging tn banking bual

right it eould prohibit hint from entering

LONDON, June 2 The thirteenth vain
attempt of the militant suffragettes to ob

tatlon reaulted In exctllng scenes In par
liament square tonight, and the arrest of
mure than 100 women.
The plan of campaign followed the lines
previously employed by the suffragettes.
The "woman's parliament" assembled In
Carlton hall at 8 p. m., and sent a depu
tatlon, headed by Mrs. Pankhurst to en
deavor to see the prime minister who had
previously decided not to receive the depu
tatlon. Enormous crowds of onlookers as
sembled In the vicinity of the parliament
house, hours before the time set for the
raid upon the house, around which several
thousand police had taken up strategic po
Mounted Woman First.
The first noteworthy Incident was the
arrest, after a great deal of trouble, of a
buxom equestrienne suffragette, who tried
to penetrate the police cordon to take a
message to the premier.
Next appeared the deputation under com
mand of Mrs. Pankhurst, and It was te-
celved by the crowd with wild cheers. Es
corted by the police the deputation ar
rived at the St, Stephens entrance to par
liament, , where It was met by Chief In

The police tried to Induce the women
to disperse quietly, and then began to
take the members of the deputation by tho
arms to lead them away. To the surprise
of the spectators, who were massed around
the entrance, Mrs. Pankhurst slapped In
spector Jarvls In the face, knocking his
cap In the muo. inert wore cn ii

told the suffragette leader that she had no
provocation to do such a thing.
A moment later another member or the
deputation, Mrs. Saul Solomon, knocks!
off the Inspector's cap a second time, whllo
others made determined attempts to rush
the cordon of police. Eventually the en
tire deputation was placed under arrest
By this time a second deputation had left
Caxton hall, accompanied by some nun
dreds of suffragettes and others, and an
attempt was made to reach the house of
commons through the underground pas
sage, leading from Westminster bridge.
Windows Are Smashed.
This, too, was unsuccessful, but for two
hours the whole district was In a state of
uproar, the police dispersing the crowds
and arresting women by the wholesale.

buildings were smashed with stones wrap

Altogether 111 women were arrested, in

WASHINGTON. June ft.-Senator Cum

"The Issue respecting an income tax has
sudden changed. Until within a few days
the lstue was whether any income tax
should be authorised by congress. It now
seems to bo what kind of an Income tax

Mr. Cummins said that while be believed
It to b the duty of a senator to give rec

that It collides with the decision of the

Mr. Cunmtna suggested that the very ex

May Get the Place.
COMES TO VIEW THE SITUATION
Thing Is Certain, No Nebraska
in Will Succeed Me," Says
Dean of Nebraska Medi
IYof. J. B. Johnston of the University of
Minnesota probably will succeed Dr. Henry
C. Ward hs dean of the University of Ne
braska College of Medicine. He is favored
for the position by Dr. Ward himself and
by members of the board of regents.
Prof. Johnston was escorted to Omah
by Dr. Ward to meet the members of the
faoulty of the Omaha branch of the Ne
braska School or Medicine. A luncheon
waa given In his honor at the Omaha club
at which ten of the prominent doctors of
this city were present.
Dr. Ward when Interviewed upon his ar
rival said he did not know that Prof.
Johnston would be hla successor. He said
ho brought him here to aee the Omaha
school and to let htm learn how well
Omaha waa prepared to treat him should
he be elected to the position of dean.
Dr. Ward would not say that Prof. John
ston was his choice for the position. He
said, however, that his successor would
not be ar member of the present Nebraska
"Prof. Johnston is brought here by me
that he may become acquainted with the
Omaha members of the Nebraska faculty,
He has not consent! to accept the posi
tion vacated by me. He has not as yet
learned enough about the Nebraska school
to know whether he would like the place
Will Know Wednesday.
"By Wednesday I think he will be able
to state whether he would like to take
my place. Tou had better Interview him
then and he may be able to tell you what
he will do.
"In the meantime he will be In Omaha
with me. His visit here will permit the
local professors and doctors to learn
whether they will like Prof. Johnston and
that, of course, will have some bearing on
his being elected as my successor."
"Whether Prof. Johnston is elected or
not, my successor Is euro to be some pro
fessor who Is not now a msmber of the
University of Nebraska faculty. There Is
no one at Lincoln who feels that he could
take up the work of aean or the medical
oolloge and so the regents will have to get
a man from some other school.
"Prof. Johnson ranks high In the Unl
versify of Minnesota faculty. He has been
there several years and has done good
work for the Minnesota college."
Dr. Ward will leave for Alaska this
evening to do some research work for

Confederate Brigadier la Suicide.
OAKLAND, Cel., June 29. General
George B. Coaby, aged 09, a native of Ken
tucky and one of the few surviving briga
diers of the Confederate army, committed
suicide by Inhaling gas here today. He
had been suffering from paralysis.
"I did not have enough power turned on,"
explained Orville at this Juncture.
At 6:30 o'clock the machine was ready for
another trial and the first mishap waa
repeated, with the exception that thla time
tha left wing scraped the ground.
The machine was then returned for a
third trial, and the crowd, seeing that Or
ville was determined to make a flight,
Orville stuck to his theory that the power
was not sufficient. He did not appear to
be the least bit nervous nor concerned over
the two failures. He Joked with the news
paper men, who were the only persons
allowed within the field today, and seemed
to be confident that the machine would
ultimately make a auccessful flight. The
third attempt waa even leas successful,
the machine refualng to rise at all.
At 7:46 o'clock the final trial was started
and the machine rose to a height of about
fifteen or twenty feet. Shortly after It
ascended from the ground It showed s gns
of losing headway, but Orville kept on
around the field, remaining in the air about
fifty second and landing almost In front
of the starting track,

corridors that the Rhode Inland senator
had become an advocate of a tax on the
earnings of corporations as the most ef
fective means ot defeating a general In
come tax amendment to the pending bill.
Chairman Aldrlch Prank.
Mr. Aldrich today stated his own posi
tion, which was in accordance with the
rumors. He spoke In response to a ques
tion from Senator Clay. He said:
"I shall vote for the corporation tax as a
means of defeating the Income tax."
He added: "I shall be perfectly frank In
that respect. I shall vote for it for an
other reason. The income of the govern
ment this year will show a deficit of $00,.
000,000. Next year there will be a deficit
of 145,000,000. I am willing that the deficit
shall be taken care ot by a corporation
tax, but at the end of two yeara It should
either be reduced to a nominal amount or

permanent form of taxation "a tax which

At onoe Mr. Bailey declared Mr. Aldrich
had announced that hla attitude tn favor
ing a corporation tax was a mere subter
fuge. "Under the statement made by the sen
ator from Rhode Island," said Mr. Bailey,
"those who have said they favor an In
come tax and now Join him in this subter
fuge to defeat it, may see clearly what
they are doing. We now are told that this
corporation tax is to be entirely repealed,
or at least emasculated, within the next
two years, and see that after all It la simply
a contest between an Income tax as a part
of our fiscal system, or a corporation tax
as a subterfuge to be continued two
Wey Aldrlch Favors Tax.
"My support of the corporation tax," re
plied Mr. Aldrlch promptly, "la not a sub
terfuge in any sense of the word. The cor
poration tax. is a tax on corporation!,
which it is clearly within the right of con
gress to Impose, and those senators who
are honestly In favor of an income tax
that Is constitutional, and that can be
operated, will support the Income tax prop,
ouitlon of the administration as against
the proposition of the senator from Texas
which is certainly, In the minds of more
thoughtful people, unconstitutional." .
"The least thoughtful people," corrected
"My direct authority," continued Mr.
Bailey, "for saying this was a subterfuge,
Is the statement ot the senator from
Khode Island that he will vote for a cor
poration tax for the purpose of defeating
an Income tax. If that does not define a
subterfuge we will need a new dictionary."
Mr. Aldrlch said he favored an Income
tax only for times of emergency and le

tax as a means for destroying tho proteo
Supports the President.
"This proposition for a corporation tax
waa made by the president of the United
States before the house committee on waya
and means prior to the time we considered
It here," said Mr. Aldrlch. "I am here as
a republican to support a republcan ad
ministration aa far as I can consistently
with my duty. I shall vote for thla proposi
tion for the purposes I have named, and
the fact that It is a republican proposition
and supported by the president of the
United States is not the least controlling."
Mr. Bailey said he had a curiosity to
know whether "when they had set their
heads at work to defeat the income tax
amendment, the president made the sug
gestion or the senator from Rhode Island
sugKested It to the president?"
"I suppose the senator scarcely expects an
answer to that question," responded Mr
Aldrich, who added hia recent converaatlon
with the president was a private one.
"While you are talking about all these
things." pW-aded Mr. Tillman, "my poor
little tea baby has been laid aside and is
crying for pap."
Another Hap at Aldrich.
Mr. Clay suld he believed the Rhode Is
land senator' favored the corporation tax
solely to defeat the income tax.
"Not solely." replied Mr. Aldrlch. "The
ImpoHlton of an Income tax now would be
an assault, or rebuke rather, to the su
preme court of the United Statee."
Mr. Clay declared it had become evident
that the administration program was
brought forward to end all chance for the
enactment of an Income tax law. Ha
pointed out that under the administration
plan twelve stales could defeat the amend
ment and such a defeat would defeat Ihe
question for all time.
