Speech of Characteristic
s" ' Nature,
WASHINGTON. April 30.-By the decisive
vote of IS to a And In the midst of Intense
excitement the administration republicans
Friday defeated the Cummins substitute for
the Crawford-Elkins trsfflo agreement pro
vision of the railroad bill. This question
had practically monopolized the attention
of the senate for the last week and was
regarded as one of the most Important sub
divisions of the pending; bill. The vote Is
generally accepted as a test of the strength
of the' contending sides, respectively, and
It is believed that it presages the passage
of the bill by a safe majority.
Of the total membership of ninety-two
there were twenty-eight senators who did
rot vote, and Of these four, all democrats,
were absent without being represented.
They were Senators Clark of Arkansas,
Bankheed of Alabama, McEnery of Louisi
ana and Smith of Maryland.
All the democrats present voted for the
Cummins provision, so that if the four
democrats mentioned had been present and
had voted for, the amerdment the ballot In
its favor, would have been Increased to
thirty-three, still less by two votes than
the vote, against the provision. Only eigh
teen democratlo votes were cast, and thes.
together with eleven republicans who voted
for the Cummins substitute, constituted the
Fall Vote of Senate.
The full vote was as follows:

Immediately after the result was an
nonunced Senator Cummins, whose provis
ion had been voted down, gave notice of
another amendment intended to accomplish
the same purpose. He had claimed for his
substitute that It would specifically require
the approval by the Interstate Commerce
commission of all rates under traffic
agreements in advance of their taking ef
fect, but his substitute covered all phases
of the question.
By the amendment presented today the
Iowa senator seeks to insert a proviso de
claring that no Increase or change in
classification shall take effect until it
shall have received the approval ot the
commission. There Is a general under
standing that voting will be resumed to
morrow and It Is expected that all amend
ments. Including that of Mr. Cummins,
will be voted down and that the Crawford
provision, which has been accepted by the
commission, will be adopted.
The voting stage was not reached until
late in the day. The senate had begun
the consideration of the bill In the hope ot
being able to complete the section before
the close of the sitting, and would have
been able to do so but for the fact that
at the last moment Senator La Follette
came in with a speech, which delayed the
Previous to Mr. La Follette's speech the
time had been 'given to addresses by Sen
ators Newlands and Cummins.
Senator Frye, president pro tern, occupied
the chair, and his recognition of the Wis
consin senator was rather grudgingly given.
Mr. La Foilette, beginning at 1:53 p. m.,
continued until 4:43 o'clock. Ills speech
was a plea against the annulment of the
Sherman anti-trust law as applicable to the
railroads, without supplying adequate pro
tection in its absence.
senate Anxlons to Vote.
In many respects it was a remarkable
speech, and It was delivered under some
what trying circumstances. The senate as
we.1 as Its presiding officer, evidently
wanted to vote, and while most of the
senators retained their seats there was
manifest Impatience, at least among the
advocates of the bill.
Declaring that the standard In the senate
had declined since 1890, when the anti
trust law was enacted, and asserting that
law to be, next to the constitution, the
principal bulwark of the liberties of the
people, Mr. La Follette warned his col
leagues and especially western senators,
against being the first to impair the law.
Taking up the republican platform, Mr.
La Follette asserted that party platforms
frequently cam nearer representing the
view of interested parties than those of
the people at large, and that in reality the
senate committee recommendation did not
coincide with the party declarations.
Rising to tip-toe, and stretching his arm
toward the republican side of the chamber,
the Wisconsin senator proceeded to present
his views of the transactions at the Chicago
convention, declaring the Denver convention
had been as carefully watched as had the
other by , the trusts.

HIGH CLASSMEN VICTORS
Omaha High School Seniors Take
. Track Meet.
SENIORS CAPTURE FIFTY POINTS
Make This Score Ont of Possible
Hundred Twenty-Two Fresh
men Follow In Second
The senior class of 1910 led the under
classmen by a margin of 18 points In the
annual class track athletic meet held by
high school students Friday. Out of a pos
sible 122 points the senior athletes took 60
points, the Juniors 33 points, the freshmen
30 and the sophomores 9. This score al
lows the senior class to keep the silver
trophy, which they won last year, for an
In Individual competition John Rayley of
the senior class and Robert Wood of the
freshmen are so far Judged to be equal
in number of points. According to the
rules under which the meet Is held the
competitor who attains the greatest num
ber of credits shall be awarded the gold
trophy medal for that year and the one
who la in second place shall have the silver
trophy medal. Several events In which the
number of credits was not made clear will
bo decided later, thus placing the medals
with these two boys.
The Omaha Hlglw. school record for the
20-yard dash was broken and the record
for the 100-yard was tied In this meet, but
Coach Carns stated that these records
would not stand as high school records
because tho wind was behind the boys as
they ran. Under the rules of the High
School association, to which Omaha be
longs, records made with wind behind the
runners do not stand as such. Both the
records made, however, were by Robert
Wood, a sophomore. The 220-yard dash
was made In 22 seconds and the 100-yard
dash In lOVs seconds.
None of the events was very closely con
tested for first place except the half-mile,
In which Kulakofsky and Fraaer, both
seniors, ran neck and neck until the fin
ishing post was almost reached, when Ku
lakofsky was able to gain a little on his
opponent. In the mile run, Hudson led
the pace for third place until the last
100 yards, when Ludwig overtook him and
landed In third place.
One reason the seniors came out so well
In the race was that they took almost all
the points In the weight events. Coach
Cams was a little disappointed In the show
ing made by the boys In the Jumps and
the pole vault, but waa more than pleased
by the results of the races and says he
expects Omaha to come out well In the

Controversy End After Month's Sus
pension of Work Diggings
- Open Monday.
PITTSBURG, .April 30 The controversy
between the 40,000 union miners and op
erators of the Pittsburg soft coal district
which haa resulted In a month's suspension
of mining, was settled late tonight. The
miners will return to work Monday. The
mlnera are to receive an advance of S.5S
per cent, , but the wage matter had not
lately been as much of a controversy as
the permissible "powder Issue." It has
been arranged that In the twelve mines
now using explosives which the state law
demands, . tests are to be made, and If It
Is shown that permlssable powder producea
more slack In coal than black powder, the
miners are to be paid the difference, based
on the average test In each of these mines.
If the run of the coal is - the same no
change Is to be made. Other provisions
were largely routine.
DES MOINES, la., April 30 Encounter
ing a stone wall of opposition in the ranks
of their employes, the Iowa coal operators
today abandoned their stand for the incor
poration, of extra disciplinary measures in
the fifth general resolution of the contract.
The resolution was adopted for the new
agreement as It stod on the old contract.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., April 30. At a
meeting between the striking mlnera and
the coal operators of the southwest district
next Monday morning In this city, . it is
expected some definite advance will be
made In settling the wage scale. As some
of the operators have shown a willingness
to grant the demands of 'the miners, Mr.
Keith's statement Is taken to mean that
the employes will present a solid front.

Darin New Mayor's Term of
Office Call Foe Petty
; NEW YORK, April 30. Mayor Oaynor
and William Randolph Hearst both issued
statements Friday on the Issue raised last j
night at the Joint banquet of the Associated
Press and the Newpaper Publishers' asso
ciation, when the mayor' said (that Mr.
Hearst was a forger and a falsifier.
Supplementary statements were Issued by
Comptroller Prendergast, former Comp
troller Mets and the district attorney's
office, following rumors that there was a
possibility of future legal proceedings as
a result of the mayor's address last night.
Mr. Hearst's statement follows:
"I am not entirely familiar with all the
accusations against Mayor Gay nor, or his
attempt to divert attention from them by
an attack on the American. I have Just
returned from Mexico. It Is obvious to
anyone, however, that the mayor's defense
is false upon Its face. His attack upon the
American Is entirely dlslngenlous and
wholly untruthful. His only claim, when
It Is analysed, la that the American failed
to print clearly the date on a photographic
facsimile of one of the . documents In the
case against him, although the American
carried the same date of the same docu
ment clearly printed In type In the text
of the article. . -
"What a petty quibble for an important
man, or rather, what a quibble for a petty
man who holds an important position.
"Anybody who knows the high character
of the gentlemen who edit the .American
knows that no matter how much they
might despise Mayor Oaynor they would
never seek to take an unfair advantage
"Anybody who knows the ability of the
gentlemen who edit the American knows
that If they had desired to omit the date
of any document, they would not have been
so childish as to print the date conspicu
ously In the type while they were leaving
It out of the picture.
"Finally, anybody who can read and
think can see clearly tthat the date in ques
tion is not the important date, anyhow, but
that the Important date is the date of
January 1 a date In Mayor Oaynor's ad
ministration upon which the payment to
CoHalan of $48,000 waa finally signed and
'actually authorised.. The January 4 signa
ture was affixed by the assistant chamber
lain to the office of Chamberlain Hyde,
Mr. Oaynor's law partner.
"This latter gentleman, who Is popularly
known as 'Oaynor's Thick Hyde,' Is not
only Oaynor's law partner, but the person
(who figured conspicuously in Oaynor's
golf ball decision in favor ot race track
gambling. The two constitute the Dr.
Jekell and Mr. Hyde ot law and politics.

BUYS' GIRLS AS EVIDENCE
New York Prosecutor Gets Them
from Alleged White Slavers.
COLLEGE WOMEN AS AIDS
Three Persona Ara Arrested Charged

NEW YORK, April 80. District Attorney
Whitman has obtained positive proof that
It Is possible to buy girls for Immoral pur
poses In New York. Tonight four young!
girls, who were purchased by special
agents of the district attorney, ara in thu
care of his office, Mr. Whitman announced,
and three persons accused of violating the
law against procuring are under arrest
: Two women, one ' a graduate of Smith
college and the other of Radcllffe, and a
man formerly connected with the govern
ment service wre employed as the agents
In the case. In negotiating ,for the pur
chase of the girls they represented them
selves as procuring agents for houses In
Seattle, Wash., and Juneau, Alaska. v Dy
familiarising themselves with the Tender
loin of Seattle they were sblo to win the '
confidence of denizens of the underworld
here and to make their purchases.
On the evidence obtained moro arrests ara

sational developments are hinted at. Nono
of the girls Is over 18 years old. Two are
Polish Jews and the others are Americans,
all residents of this city. It is averted that

waa only thwarted by the fact that the glri

court this afternoon under 110,000 ball. The
others will be srraigned next Wednesday.
Trading during the present winter was de
scribed as exceptionally light on account
of general alarm caused by the sitting ot
the Rockefeller whlto slave grand Jury, ac

' "I do not caro to say at this time Just
what price was paid for the four girls,
