LONDON", Aug. 7. Tile liift phase of th
ftsht over the veto bill, designed to re the puwer of the House of Lord!
over liniHlatlon originating In the lower
rhamber, was entered on In the House of
Commons' thl afternoon when A. J. Bal
four, leader of the opposition, moved a
vote of censure for the government.
Mr. Balfour's inuiTon. of which he gave
notice on Auguxt 2. was as follows:
"That the advice given hl majesty by
his majesty's ministri-H whereby they ob
tained from his m a pledge that a
sufficient number . would be cre
ated to pars the tarllainent bill In the
Hhapo In which It left this house, Is a
groxs violation of constitutional liberty
which among other 111 consequences, .the
people will be precluded from again pro
nouncing on the policy of home rule."
The former unionist premier emphasised
that he was conscious of the gravity of
situation and the seriousness of the step
which he asked the house to take.
"The ministers," said Mr. Balfour, "hav
grossly abuxed their rights of advising the
crown and by abusing those rights put
themselves above the constitution. They
have acted wholly without precedent."
Premier Asqulth In reply Jeerlngly thank
ed Mr. Balfour for "this opportune though
unexpected motion. It waa the very thing
that the government wanted."
"We took the only course consistent with
honor and a true regard for the dignity
of the crown." j
Mr. Asqulth maintained that the only
method of dealing with the situation waa
through the use of the royal prerogative.
"I hold my office," he added, "not only
by the favor of the crown, but on behalf
of the people, and I should be guilty in
deed, of treason, if at the moment of a
great struggle I were to betray 'their

tatives today waited anxiously for ad

republican members of the house, sched
uled for this afternoon at Georgetown
field. The gate receipts will materially
assist in the work of the Washington
Playgrounds association.
Representatives Webb of North Carolina
waa slated to pitch for the democrats.
While Representative Oldfleld of Arkansas
was expected to catch. Other democratlo
players follow:
Reilly, Connecticut, first base; Klnkead,
New Jersey, second base; Harrison, Mis
sissippi, third base: Carter, Oklahoma,
short stop; Driscoll, New York, left field;
Murry, Massachusetts, center field;
Hughes, New Jersey, right field, with Hef
Iln, Alabama; Curley, Massachusetts, and
Garrett, Tennessee, as substitutes.
The republicans chose as twtrler Repre
sentative Kendall of Iowa, with Burke of

McCabe Questioned
About His Activity
f or Benzoate of Soda
Solicitor Tells Committee that Mann
facturen Not Using It Were Mak
ing Fight on Remsen Board.
WASHINGTON, Aug." 7. The activity of
George P. McCabe, solicitor of the Agri
cultural department in trying to uphold the
famous antl-Wiley bensoate of soda decision
by the Remsen board and Secretary Wilson
was probed today before the house com
mittee on agricultural expenditures.
Mr. McCabe admitted .that before the
national convention of state food and dairy
Inspectors at Denver in 1S09 he had on an
official trip through several states "inter
viewed every man I could get at and told
him to come to Denver and uphold the
department's ruling."
This campaign to secure an endorsement
of the antl-Wlley ruling from the national
gathering, Mr. McCabe said, was fully Jus
tified because the manufacturers 'who did
not use the bensoate of soda In their foods
were making an advertising campaign and
were trying to gain noterlety by opposing
Secretary Wilson and the Remsen board.
A letter written by Mr. McCabe to Dr.
Wiley In September, 1910, challenging the
latter's statements that there were 25,000
"cure-alls' and patent medicines on the
market, was introduced.

by the large business interests to apply the

advantage of the strike to destroy property.
It is represented that Roe did not per

WASHINGTON, Aug. 7. The Joint res
olution providing for the admission of
Arizona and New Mexico as states of th
union under an enabling act of the last
congress was taken up immediately after
the senate met at 10 o'clock today.
Senator Nelson of the committee on ter
ritories promptly offered his substitute
for the house measure. The substitute was
framed to meet the wishes of the president
and it has been stated that it has received
the endorsement of a sufficient number of
members to ensure Its passage. The pres
ident has taken a , determined position
agalnet the inclusion of Judges in th re
call provision of the Arizona constitution.
The Nelson substitute requires the electors
of Arizona to vote that provision out of
the document as a "fundamental condi
tion'" of admission.
The house resolution merely provides for
the re-BubmlBslon of this feature to th
house. The Nelson substitute also differs
from the house resolution in that It makes
no requirement that the people of New
Mexico provide an easier way of amend
ing the constitution.
The debate begun today promised to be
a lengthy one. The agreement for a vote
today is for th "legislative" and not the
calendar day, which means that by recess
ing each evening the senate can carry its
discussion through several calendar days.
Senator Polndexter of Washington spoke
in defense of the initiative, referendum
and recall features of the Arizona consti
tution. He declared it was a travesty on self
government to try to compel the people of
Arizona to adopt a constitution which they
themselves do not want, but which the peo
ple of other states think they should have.
That there has arisen during the last
few years a quiet, subtle way of getting rid
of federal Judges was a startling declara
tion in the debate made by Senator Borah
of Idaho in opposing the Judiciary recall.
He asserts that the department had found
a way of having federal Judges removed if
their opinions did not suit th department
heads. ,
Senator Root of New York spoke In op
position to th recall of Judges feature -ot
the Arlsona constitution and In favor of the
Nelson substitute to the house bill.
