WASHINGTON, Aug. 10. With a meeting
of the full committee of the two houses in
conference on tbe wool and free list bills
called for tomorrow, Senator La Follette
and Representative Underwood, who con
stitute the working subcommittee of that

endeavor to place themselves in position to

progress, but when th two houses ad

The confe vees were apart only to th ex

Mr. La Follette was willing to come down

There will be little difficulty about agree

equivalent to a material reduction on these
wools and a lowering of the average rate,
on the La Foil Ate ' bill.
Mr. La Toilette said that If his political

down to ii per cent on raw wool, but after

WASHINGTON, Aug. 10,-Dr. F. L. Dun

of Agriculture, who prepared the memo

Dr. Dunlap .aid that as he presented the
matter to Secretary Wilson It was simply
a formal statement of the facts. The un
usual procedure of having this memoran
dum prepared In the offices of Solicitor
McCabe of the department instead of in
the bureau of chemiBtry was explained by
Dr. Dunlap on the ground that it was "an
unusually serious case, ' and he did not
want It discussed In th bureau of chem

MOB RULE ON LONDON DOCKS
Strikers Effectively Prevent Unload

POLICE CANNOT HANDLE CROWD
Wiiou Are Overturned and Loads
Scattered In Gotters Thousands
of Ton of Food Spoilod
Near Famine Conditions.
LONDON, Aug. id. The neighborhood of
the docks was practically under mob rule
today, with the result that there was such
a dwindling of food supplies that the
metropolis experienced something akin to
what might happen if a hostile foreign
force should succeed in Interrupting Great
Britain's trade routes.
Unless good progress is made today in
the negotiations looking to a settlement
of the strike of dock workers, the calling
out of troops seems inevitable, as the po
lice are unable to deal with the emergency.
The only quarter where relief was ex
perienced was Billingsgate. There the
striking fish porurs obtained all they
wished and returned to work. On the
other hand, hundred of railroad car men
quit this morning and several stations were
practically In a state of siege, strike pick
ets preventing by force all attempts to
handl. goods. It was th. Intention of the
strikers to tie up all street traffic unless
their demands were conceded within a fe
hours. Should they be successful, London
would be perilously near actual famine
conditions. The stream of motor traction
today was hardly half Its usual propor
tions. So short was the supply of petrol
that hundreds Of motor busses and tax.
cabs were unable to move a wheel.
The only traffic passing without fear
of Interference was that of vans carrying
hospital stores. These were labeled with
big Red Cross signs, with a permit from
the strike committee explaining that they
must not Interfere with them. Until this
system of Identification was adopted this
morning the hospitals felt a shortage ot
Ice and other supplies.
Fro It and Vegetables Rottlns;.
Thousands of tons of fruit, vegetables
and provisions are rotting on th. wharves
and In the railway freight depots. Unless
they can be moved soon, they threaten to
endanger th general health. Among the
larger consignments which probably will
be a dead lose Is a huge quantity of Cali
fornia fruits from the steamer Minnehaha.
The central meat and provision markets
are short of supplies and prices have ad
Today th. temper of th. strikers ap
peared ugly and scenes of violence In
creased. Throughout ths east end clashes
were frequent wherever attempts were
made to move a wagon. The men would
intervene and brushing aside the Inade
quate police squads, overturn the wagons
and scatter their loads In the gutter. Po
lice charges were made every few minutes,
but they were not strong enough to have

Detachments of troops arrived her. to
day to assist th. police, who have been
unable to control the rioting strikers. A
fusillade of brickbats and stones met ths
soldiers but they finally took up strateglo
posjtlons and enabled the pollc through a
succession of baton charges to affect a
clearance of the provisions and other goods.
At the Central railway stations a baton
charge was required with each load of
goods that left the place and when th.
police at last exhausted, retired, their places
were taken by mounted men.
The trouble with the coal porters was
settled at the Board of Trade conference
this afternoon. The demands of the
lightermen and carmen remain to be ad

later In connection with Controller bay, Mr.

If we Insist that the agents of government

these needs accomplished, even though It
be necessary to override the representa

Mr. Roosevelt begins his article with a
reference to an article from the Washing
ton correspondent of the New York Trtbun
of July 28. Justifying the withdrawal of the
Controller bay lands from the forest re
serves on the grounds that similar action
had been taken by Mr. Garfield and Mr.
Pinchot In eliminating certain areas at
Eyak and Valdez Arm from th forest rs- .
serves. Mr. Roosevelt continues:
"The article assumed that I was deceived
by Messrs. Garfield and Pinchot It la
hardly necessary to say that any such as
sumption must be made either with Intent
to be humorous or with a full knowledge
of Its falsehood. I was In a peculiar sens
responsible for every act of Mr. Pinchot
and Mr. Garfield when they held office
under mo. They represented to a very espe
cial degree ' the policies and principles
which I had especially at heart and, while
of course there were necessarily many ac
tions I took on their recommendation with
the details of which it was Impossible for
m to be acquainted, I was absolutely and
entirely cognizant of the principles In ac
cordance with which each on of these acts
was taken, and each act faithfully repre
sented the putting Into effect of th prin
ciples In which I believed and which I had
laid down for tbe guidance of my adminis
tration. Xakln Oat Town Site.
"In every part of the country In which
there are forest reserves It has been
found, and it will in the future be found,
necessary to make eliminations for town
sites, for agricultural purposes, for manu
facturing purposes, and the like. Each
such case stands on its own merits; eaoh
such case depends for Its Justification upon
conditions existing at the time It la
made, and is In no sense a precedent for
any other case, arising under new condi
tions, or when facts hitherto undiscovered
have been made known. It may be not
only proper to eliminate a given tract of
land, but highly Improper not to eliminate
it; and yet, if the elimination of another
tract of land will give monopoly to a min
ing company, or a transportation company,
or any other company, it may be to th
last degree Improper. At th. time th.
elimination at Kyak and Valdei Arm were
made, no suggestion had been made to m
from any source, nor was there uny pub
lic knowledge, that ther was the slightest
danger of th Guggenheim syndicate, or
any other syndicate, obtaining control of
Alaska, as the developments during th
past three years have shown to b. th. case,
and as has been a matter of public no
toriety for at least two years.
"Months after the date of these elimina
tions Cunningham made affidavit that h
knew of no entrymcm In the Cunningham
group that had any contract with the
Guggenheim syndicate; the elemlnltlons
being made In July and September, 19C",
and the Cunningham affidavit In Septem
ber, 1908. When these eliminations wer
made there was not a vestige of evidence
to show that we should be on our guard
to prevent such a monopoly as is now
evidently threatened. Incidentally, anent
the assertion of Mr. Ryan that he has no
interest whatever in the uuggennelm syn
dicate, let me point out the explicit char
acter of the Cunningham affidavit, (that
the Guggenheim had no Interest In their
claims; and. In any event, our entlr past
Industrial history gives us warrant for
saying that If the Ryan r.d I built a
