WASHINGTON. July .-Speclsl Tel
(tram.) Th ten republican senators who
recorded themselves In the negative when
the tariff bill tu before the senate, with
the exception of LaFollette, who la absent
from the city, today held a conference In
the room of the committee on public lands,
of which committee Knute Nelson la
chairman. The ranks of the ten were
swelled by the addition of Borah of Idaho.
The conference lasted somewhat over an
hour, but no definite future program to
force revision downward was adopted, so
fsr as could be learned. Those present
were Senators Burkett and brown. Ne
braHka; Nelson and Clapp, Minnesota;
Iiolllver and Cummins. Iowa; Beverldge,
Indiana; Crawford, South Dakota; Brls
tow, Kansas and Borah of Idaho.
It nan (he consensus of opinion that
President Taft Is sincere In his efforts
to bring alio ut downward revision and his
recent emphatic expressions on the sub
ject of the redemption of party pledgee,
met with hearty approval, and the ex
pression of a determination to aid In
bringing- about such a result. Free raw
material- waa the slogan of the assembled
ten apostles, and while no particular cam
palgn of action could be safely mapped
out until the conference committee brings
In Its report, all pledged themselves to
stand for downward revision until the last
bridge Is crossed.
rrann Pushes Ills Amendment.
That Senator Brown does not Intend to
permit his amendment to the constitution
relative to a tax on Incomes to slumber
or that there shall be the slightest chance
that It will be forgotten, was In evidence
at the brief session of the senate today.
At the opening of the session the senator
submitted a concurrent resolution request
ing the president to transmit to the gov
ernors of" the several states copies of all
matters pertaining to the proposed consti
tutional amendment, so (hat the exeoutlves
of the state may have In Uielr possession
full and thorough official Information as
to the action of congress and be completely
Informed upon the subject, to enable them
to advise the state legislatures In their an
nual messages. He asked for Immediate
consideration, but because of objection by
Senator Kean of New Jersey It went over
until next Thursday.
Senator Brown said today that he did not
expect Immediate conslderstlon of this con
current resolution, but waa advised there
would be no objection whatever to Its adopr
tlon, the delay being merely a formality.

Cheeneegaoryaan (John Baptist), the Ar

In Omaha on his way back to his home in
Turkey when he was warned that it would
not be safe for him to go on, has re
ceived a letter from his parents advising
hlra to reme-in here and to make arrange

"A letter came last night." said 'John
Baptist,' as he has been known In this
country, "which informed me that the Ar
menian Christians In Turkey live In dally
fear of their lives and expect death with
every wjnd that blows. My sister, who Is
the wife of a professor In a Constanti
nople college, has not been heard of since
a massacre which occurred eleven weeks
ago. The letter from my parents was
mailed July 11. and It Is the first one of
many which the Turks, who examine all
the malls, have let go through.
"Since 1 have been educated as a doctor

reason Is given In the letter from my par

WASHINGTON, July tO.The tariff bltl
was today transferred bodily from the
canltol to the White house. Deadlocked
because of the attitude of Representative
Payne, who apparently has become con
vlnced that he Is In the minority, the con
ferees abandoned the usual afternoon ses
sion. Senator Aldrich and Speaker Cannon
repaired to the White house post haste to
consult with President Taft, literally tak
ing the tariff bill with them.
What happened at the White house be
tween the president and the aenate and
house leaders Is a sealed book. When
Messrs. Aldrich and Cannon returned to
the capltol they minimised differences that
had arouned bitterness In the conference
room, and insisted that nothing unusual
had occurred. Senator Aldrich said that
toworrow Would find the conference com
mittee again at work and he expected that
by night, when all of the conferees were
to be entertained by the president at din
ner, most oMhe problems apart from those
receiving the personal attention of the
president would have been solved.
Trouble In Committee Room.
Nevertheless, there has been trouble be
hind those closed and guarded doors that
shut the public from the room where the
tariff bill Is being constructed. Borne say
that the differences between Senator Aid

From a creditable source tt was learned
that a crisis was reached when an effort

such a move would be unfair to the pres

practically submitted to him for adjust

In the two houses to adopt- compromise
Aldrich Barks Fordney.'
"If we cannot Vgree, lets settle the ques
tion by voting on the question," Mr. Ford
ney Is reported to have suggested. It Is
reported also that Mr. Aldrich acquiesced
In the proposal.
That Mr. Payne had little part in se
lecting the conferees to represent the house
In the conference la well known. Mr.
Payne made recommendations that were
Ignored and the speaker made his own
selections. Mr. I'ayne la aald to have com
plained to some sf his friends at the time
that the conference committee had been
"packed" with high protectionists, and
that Senator Aldrich had been able to
wield more Influence with the speaker than
had he as chairman of the committee
which prepared the house bill.
When Mr. Fordney, who had been placed
on the conferenoe committee regardless of
the fact that he La the junior republican
member, said "Lets vote" Mr. Payne pro
tested with a vehemence that startled his
associates. Some one said that the major
ity should rule. The remark, it Is de
clared, came from one of the senate mem
bers of the conference, and it Incensed Mr.
Payne still more.
Reada Riot Act to Aldrich.
Mr. Payne told Mr. Aldrich that he oould
rote the senate members of the conference
If he chose, but that he could not votte
the house members ao easily. Full of wrath,
he told his house colleagues that it waa
their duty to stand up for the house bill,
and to yield only after every possible ef
fort had been made to win. He Intimated
that some of the house conferees had been
too ready to agree to increases made by
unless the house members Intend to
stand by the house bill, there Is no use In
trying to vote on these matters." he said
Aa a parting ahot, Mr. Payne is reported
to have aald that he would not sign a
conference report merely because a ma
jority of the house republican confereea
had agreed to it. With hla coat tails
furled about him, Mr. Payne stalked an
grily from the room.
After Mr. Payne had departed the other
confereea predicted that ruffled feelinga
would be Ironed out over night. So it
appeared when today's sesalon opened, No

FORT DODOEIa., July 20. (Special
Telegram.) On other days GUddon tour

Today the tour officials overestimated
the time It would take the cars to make
the run from MankHto here. As a con
sequence when the first cars, the Pierce
Arrow and Marmon teams, came to the
finishing point not a drop of oil or gaso
line waa to be had.
In ordinary times this would have ere

of the big days of the year for Fort
Dodge, circus day, and the streets were
crowded with people from neighboring
towns and from the country and they
could give no answers to the wildly
shouted queries of the tourists as t
where supplies could be had. Only a pro
cess of elimination solved the problem.
The streets were congested by the thou
sands of visitors and the dozens of motor
cars on the tour. The latter would hunt
in bevies and by lnqulrlrg from store to
store, weeded out the places that did not
sell gasoline and oil and in that way suc
ceeded In finding what they wanted.
As It was the cars that had made an

the line, owing to their wild hunt for
No riace to I. ay Their Heads.
To add to the confusion, every room in
every hotel had been taken In advance
by those here for the circus and a-s the
special Pullman train which la to be the
home of the tourists for the next two
days had not arrived, the men were com
pelled to walk the streets, grimy as coal
miners, tired and hungry for hours. Store
proprleters and owners of homes took pity
on a number and allowed them to clean
up and cnange tneir ciomes in moir
places. The train, due at 6 o'clock, did
not arrive until 7 and th men were forced
to fall back for something to eat In the
restaurants and fruit stands, already
raided by the circus crowds.
The train waa to have been the official

Army Surgeons to Wage

When the hook worm, referred to In

The scene when the premier tok hla seat
