WARHINOTON, July I. The corporation

Taft, drawn by Attorney General Wicker
iham and presented to the senate by Mr.
Aldrlrh, chairman of the committee on
Ilnenco, la now an Integral part of the tariff
bill, an that hill now stands.
After much tribulation the senate reached
a vote on the proportion shortly before
adjourning at 7 o'clock this evening, and
the amendment was agreed to by the large
vote of 60 to 11. With all modifying amend
ments disposed of, many democrats voted
1 with moat of the republicans for the amend
ment. Only three democrats voted agalnkt
the provision on the final vote, but some
refrained from voting at all.

Tliu t'Ht vote was on the subsUtutlon of
the coipoiutlon tax amendment for the In
come tax. provlnlon, and on that vote forty
five senators cast their ballots In the
affirmative and thirty-one in the negative.
On this ballot all the democratic votes were
case In favor of the Income tax, which
also recelvtd the support of Messrs. Borah,
Bnmow, liulkeley, Clapp, Cummins, Dll

income tax question disposed of, the senate
tomorrow will enter upon administrative

up' thv maximum and minimum rate pro
llaate Caasos lararlia.
The reaching of a vote came as some
what of a surprise to a large majority
of the senators, but not to Senator Aid
rich and his intimate advisers. Mr. Aid
rich himself bad been confident from the
time of his arrival In the senate early In
the day, after a brief vacation, that he
would succeed- in getting a vote before
adjournment. The result ahows that while
the situation seemed extremely ciitloal for
a time, the chairman of the finance com
mittee did not count without a thorough
understanding of the situation. He there
fore kept his lieutenants busy In holding
the supporters In the chamber and at no
time during the day was the senate with
out a quorum.
The debate was somewhat more animated
than yesterday, and thero was a steady
fire of oratory from the beginning of the
session at 10 o'clock until 4:M. During that
time Senators Heyburn, Hughes, Cummins,
Newlands, Rayner, Brandagea, Root and
Aldrloh discussed all phases of the Income
tax question. Of these Mr. Newlands was
the last speaker. ,
Mr. Aldrich then asked for an unanimous
agreement for a vote on the corporation
tax amendment tomorrow at 1 o'clock.
Mr. Aldrich had previously been conferring
with Messrs, Bailey, Cummins, Borah and
other opponents of the amendment, and It
Waa generally supposed that they had
reached' an understanding that the vote
was to be taken tomorrow. When It
seemed probable that such a compact was
probable Senator Cummins mads an ob
While many senators were displeased
with the Idea that because of the then
parliamentary status of the corporation
amendment It was not capable of modi
fication, the lorn a senator took the reverse
position. He opposed the agreement be
cause the provision would be amendable
In case it should be substituted for the
Lodge countervailing duty, which every one
understood would result His theory was
that there should ba a square vote on the
Issue as it had been presented and no
vote on any amendment, which might now
be presented and on which there would be
no opportunity for debate. He therefore
entered formal objection to the agreement,
which not only had the effect of prevent
ing the fixing ef the vote for tomorrow.
but of forcing it today.
Bailey Starts Ftltbnster.
Even after Mr. Cummins objection had
been recorded, and Mr. Aldrich bad called
for a vote. It looked as if he would be dis
appointed. Senator Frailer, who has been
a supporter of the income tax amendment

LONDON, July 1 The murder of Lieu
tenant Colonel Sir William Hutt Curaon
Wyllie and Dr. Cawas Lalcaca of Shang
hai by Madar Lelof Dhinagrl. an Indian
atudont, Thursday nlht at the Imperial
Institute, has stirred England In a manner
unknown since the Phoenix park murders.
It had been a subject of self-congratulation
by Englishmen that Great Britain
was Immune from political crimes of this
nature. Oreat sympathy is felt for Vis
count Morley, secretary of state for India,
the difficulties of whose position will be
greatly Increased by the murder. A strong
feeling has been aroused against a num
ber of members of the House of Commons
and others who have encouraged the In
dian agitation against the government.
Another consequence of the tragedy is
that henceforth it will be necessary to
afford police protection to public men. It
Is understood that Scotland Yard' already
has detailed detectives to follow Lord
Morley and others connected with the In
dian administration. Newspapers of all
shades of opinion urge the government
not to swerve a hair's breadth in the di
rection of weakening the executive au
thority in Ifidla, and above all, never to
allow the extremists to suppose that Great
Britain can be frightened by such mur
ders In to granting political concessions.
Premier Asqulth, speaking at Southport
tonight, expressed his deep sympathy for
the family of the Lieutenant Colon Wyllie
and the country's adhorrence of the crime
committed upon a distinguished officer of
blameless character and one universally
beloved. He said It was startling evidence
of the character of a conspiracy, which
happily was confined to a small number of
people, but was desperate and determined

Slayer Is Arralsrned.
Madar Lelof Dhinagrl was arraigned In
the Westminster police court this morn
ing and remanded for one week, after being
formally oh arced with wilful murder
In the dock the prisoner apnaared quite
unconcerned. He stood with bis bands In
his pockets and shook his head negatively
when asked if he wished to say anything.
Subsequently, however, he said that he had
not wilfully killed Dr. Lalcaca.
"I saw him advance, and then he caught
hold of me; I fired In self-defense," ho de
clared. The proceedings lasted only a few
minutes, and the Hindo prisoner was re
moved to Jail vnder a strong guard.
Incendiary Papers Found.
Two documents were found on Dhinagrl,
One was a confession of a desire to take
the life of a high official, because he was
dissatisfied with the British rule In India,
and the other a sort of political creed re
ferring to Englishmen as tyrants, and hav
ing a suggestion of reward In heaven for
any way of getting rid of prominent men.
The assassin's- family Is said to be well
known and highly respected at Amritsar In
the Punjab, where his father is a prosper

The report, which was submitted to the
secretary today and approved by him. Is
an exhaustive presentation of the case.
The committee states Its investigation was
most searching and that it failed to reveal
any' trace of dishonesty on the part of any

railway lines on both sides of the trench,
many cars and four traveling cranes.
The men at the bottom of the trench

wide, had no chance to escape, but many
of those working nearer surface were un

were still busy.
Conversations were being held with a

BEERETTE UPHELD BY COURT
First Case for Violation of

NASHVILLE, Tenn., July 2.-The first
case for the violation of the state-wide
prohibition law here came up before Judge
Hart of the criminal court today, when
that official decided there was not suffi
cient evidence to hold the men arrested
yesterday for selling what is known as
"beerette," or "near beer," and the prison
ers were released.
the men at the East St. Louis station,
from top to bottom, are absolutely honest
and competent; that they are discharging
their duty to the servlcs and to the public
in a conscientious, high minded, efficient
way and that no meat is paased from the
East St. Louis station bearing the mark of
federal inspection which is not In every
respect fit for human food. The record
ahows that many of the employes at the
East St. Louis station have worked over
time in their efforts to give an honest, ef
ficient Inspection and it is to be regretted
that the word of a disgruntled, dissatisfied
employe, Irresponsible and answerable to
no ons, should be made the occasion of
an attack on a service which is honestly
conducted and which means so much to ths
American consumer of meat products and
to the cattle, sheep and hog raisers of the
country, who are bound to suffer from any

This was Cornell's day on the Hudson as
decisively as yesterday was Harvard's on

clean sweep of the fifteenth annual regatta
of the Intercollegiate Rowing association,
Just as those of her sister university In
New England won over Yale at New Lon
don. But Cornell did more than defeat the
crews of the other four universities repre

records for the two-mile course, one In tho
varsity four-oared race and another in the
freshmen elght-oared race.
Altogether it was a great day for the

hardest contest, the other two being won

tha bow of their shell across the finish
line a scant length In the lead. In the
four-oared race Cornell won easily, three
lengths ahead of Syracuse, and In the
freshman race by a length also from Syra
cuse. The official time In this particular raoe
would indicate that Cornell's lead over
Syracuse at the finish was more than a
length and in the opinion of ' scores of
observers an error waa made, but there
was no change in the time as originally
given out by the officials. The unofficial
time In the freshman race was 1:1! Thus
Cornell lowered two records for the course,
the four-oared race by 14Vi seconds and the
freshman raoe by 10 seconds.
A strong wind and a favorable tide Is
partly responsible for the fast time made
in the first two races. Before tha varsity
race was called the wind had died away to
a light breese and the tide had turned.

Syracuse made the best showing next to
Cornell, taking second place In both the
four-oared varsity race and the freshmen
race and third place In the varsity eight.
Wisconsin had crews in but two races, and
finished fourth place In each. Pennsyl
vania's crews finished last In both the
Star City eight race and the varsity fours, -and
took third place In the freshman race.
While Columbia proved strong in the bis
race, it could finish no better than fourth
in the varsity fours and last In the fresh
The weather waa perfect, but one thing
did not come up to expectations. Tha
crowds did not come, and the assembling
of smart river craft was far less than In
former years. The Harvard-Yale race drew
all the large yachts to the Thames, and
they had not time to reach the Hudson.
There was a fair showing of motor boats '
around the finish line. Conaplouous among
these was the splendid electrlo power boat
of Colonel John Jacob Astor.

Though not up to the records In numbers,
the crowds of collegians who came from
New York, Philadelphia, Syracuse, Ithaca
and other places to cheer their crews on,
did not lack In enthusiasm and ability to
make themselves heard. The long observa
tion train that carried thousands along the
river during the races was ablase with
color, with the blue and white of Columbia
predominating. Cornell's goodly following
mlHsed none of their opportunities to yell
often and loud, and even Wisconsin's un
familiar yell mas often heard.
At 2 o'clock the four-oared crews rowed
up to the starting mark. Ths freshmen
eights followed sharply after the varsity
four, although there was an hour's wait
for the stiff breeze which had kicked up
the water to a choppy roughness during the
early afternoon to die away, and to leave
the water smooth.
This cams about t'clock, and a few
minutes later the five crews for the varsity
eight race rowed slowly up stream. Cornell
took her place first, followed quickly by
WUconain, Syracuse, Columbia and Penn
sylvania. At 6:18 the starting gun boomed
on board the yacht Gratchen, the steward's
tart of the Race.

Pennsylvania for a brief spell poked Its
