Barcelona has been a perfect hell. Half
the population Is terrorized and the other
half mad with blood. The troops of the
Karrlxon, amid shouts of approval from the
mud. repeatedly rose to fire on the people
and the work of repression fell on the po
lice and civil guard. These charged the
revolutionaries and used their firearms
fieely everywhere, but numbers were

MADRID, July 30. The news from Barce
lona that the cavalry and troops have
named the upper hand and captured the
main body of Insurgents and that only
Isolated band are holding out In the
suburbs, creates the gratest relief In offi
cial circles here. The work of repression
will rapidly be followed up throughout the
Calalonlan captaincy general.
Late last night It was officially an
nounced that the cavalry engaged at Barce
lona had succeeded In driving Into St.
Martin's square the principal band of revo
lutionlHts, against whom the artillery
opened fire. After fighting desperately and
successfully for a long time, the revolu

wer killed In the fighting and the sur

Pear Islam Uprising".
PARIS. July 30. The news of the terrible
defeat Inflicted on the Spanish forces by
Moors at Melllla and the confirmation of
thu extent of the Insurrection In Spain
causes apprehension here. The triumph
of the Moors In the Riff country perhaps
will Inflame all of Islam and lead to an
uprising In Algeria and the Soudan. The
attack upon French troops at Colom
Bchar the other day is now regarded
here as a direct result of the events on
the Riff coast. Some of the Paris news
papers, therefore, boidly suggest that In
f If-Interest It is the duty of Europe to
come to the rescue.
Th Eclair says it is Impossible for
Europe to bow before the insolent, tri
umphant Moors, and that Christian civil
ization cannot afford to allow Spain to be
beaten. Un the other hand, many news
paper declare that the Melllla disaster
It-calls the muddle and Incapacity of every

advlt-e the government at Madrid to make
a virtue of necessity by promptly ending
the advmCurc, as otherwise it will put an
end to the Spanish government.
The Aiariiuis Del Muni, the Spanish am
kwstador at Purls, has transmitted a not
to i lie Frrnt'h government, formally de

undertaken with the object of conquest,

attack on Spaniaids and their affront to
the Melllla garrison.
The Spanish ambassador In an Interview
today attributes the upheaval at Barce
lona solely to the anarchists, and he Is
confident It will be promptly suppressed.
He explains that the government Intends
to satisfy the popular demand regarding
obligatory military service and that It ha
a' ready introduced a bill In the senate for
that purpose. 1

WASHNIGTON. July 30.-Orvll1e Wright
this evening attained the xenlth of hard
earned success. In a ten mile cross-country
flight, In the famous aeroplane built
by himself and his elder brother, Wilbur,
accompanied by Lieutenant Benjamin D.
Foulls, an Intrepid officer of the army
signal corps, he not only aurpassed the
speed requirements of his contract with
the government, but accomplished the
most difficult and daring flight ever plan
ned for a heavler-than-alr flying machine.
Incidentally, he broke all speed records
over a measured course and established
beyonn tlspute the practicability of the
aeroplane in time of peace and In time
Wright's speed was more than forty-two
miles an hour. He made the ten mile flight
In 14 minutes, and 42 seconds, including
the more than twenty seconds required for
the turn beyond the line at Shuter Hill,
the soathern end of the course. He at
alnted a height in crossing the Valley of
Four Mile Run, of nearly 600 feet, and the
average altitude of his practically level
course was about 200 feet.

derrick, which gives the machine Its Initial

and also the articles upon which duties
have been lowered by the bill aa finally
reported from the conference committee.
This had been done because comparisons
have been based upon the amount of lm
portations, he said.
"Duties," he said, "have been lowered
where they were too high under the present
law, sometimes prohibitive In character.
and for that reason the importations were
comparatively small. On th other hand
they have been raised in some Instances
where the tariff waa Insufficient for pro

Measure Now Before Congress Has
NEBRASKANS WILL VOTE FOR IT
Senator Burkett Voices Sentiment of
OWANS DIVIDE ON QUESTION
Cam m I its, Dolllvrr and Three of
the Representatli e Will Vote
Against the Conference Re
port a Presented.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. July 30 (Special Tele
gram.) Prewldent Taft's slunal victory to-
ay. In which he won substantial and Car-
reaching reductions In the tariff bill, hits
ery materially changed tho feeling of tho
representatives and senators toward 'he
measure. While there Is considerable criti
cism of some of the schedules, particularly
on the part of those who failed to maintain
their advantage In either house, the con
census of opinion Is that the bill as pre
sented by the conference committee Is con
siderably better than the Dlngley bill and
s, as President Taft insisted it should be,
one of revision downward.
Nehraakana for the Bill.
While the Nebraska representatives in
congress had no formal meeting, like their
bretheren from Iowa, they had heart-to-heart
talks over the bill, and It seems safe
to predict that Nebraska republican. In
view of President TaCt's satisfaction with
the measure, and the resolutiolut adopted
by the state republican convention on Tues
day, will vote for the conference report In
heir respective houses. Senator Burkett
said the bill had been Improved very much
In conference and that President Taft hud
won a notable victory. He said there were
some things In the bill that he was not In
favor of, and that did not suit him, but
that it was u very much better bill "nan
could have been expected some time ago;
that in view of his Instructions from the re
cent state convention he could do nothing
more than support the hands of the presi
dent, who had brought about so many ma
terial reductions over that of either house.
Judge Norrls, who has been ' one of tho
strongest leaders against "Mtand-patlsm,"
said tonight that, while he had not com
pleted consideration of the tariff bill as
reported by the house conferees, he was
Impressed with Its downward tendency, and
believed that the bill was lmmeasuraoly
better than when It passed the senate, and
very considerably better than bs It passed
the house. While he would not commit
himself to vote for the conference report.
It Is confidently believed that the entire
republican representation from Nebraska
will be found voting for the measure on lis
Iowa Delegation Divided.
The Iowa republican delegation held a
meeting this afternoon In the rooms of
Captain Hull, chairman of the committee
on military affairs with a view of ascer
taining Just where they stood on the con
ference report, and, as predicted, they
split but somewhat differently than was
expected. Senators Cummins and Dolllver
and Representatives Hubbard, Haughen
and Wood will vote agntnst the conference
report with Kendal, doubtful, but very
likely to vote in Its favor. Six votes from
Iowa will be for the bill, as follows: Ken
nedy, Dawson. Pickett, Goode, Hull and
Smith. Those of Iowa delegation to the
opposition to the bill InHlsted that It waa
not In compliance with platform pledges
of what the Dlngley bill, and In the di
rection of platform, and therefore prefer
able to the Dlngley law.
It Is expected that the South Dakota
delegation will be unit In favor of the
measure, as will Wyoming. Senator Clark
of Wyoming, who- waa very considerably
dlseuested yesterday with the way con
ferees were making battledoor and shuttle
cock of lumber, hides and coal, waa some
what moillfled today by the small advance
on lead, and the reduced duty on bouts and
shoes. While he Is by no means satisfied
with some of the provisions of bills, he
believes that It will be acceptable to th
New Kngland llenvr Loser.
Just how far the opposition of New
England to the boot and sho schedules,
the Steele schedule on part of Pennsylvania
republicans and of Lucius Llttauer, the
glover from Gloversvllle. will go la not
known, but the republican whip. Repre
sentative Dwlght of New York aald tonight
that there were votes enough assured ta
adopt the conference report. Rumor aaya
that Senator Bailey proposes to break, out
In the siiate on Monday or Tuesday, and
with the help of insurgent on the republi
can ride hold congress here until jjext De
cember. There are those, however, who
believe that enticements of Texans stock
farm in Old K.-ntuek will b the alluring
for him to carry out thla rumored threat.
One thing Is certain, tha president la very
greatly (atlsfled over the fight that has
been made, and ht will sign the bill when
it comes to him.
