WASHINGTON. April U.-ln open
caucus tho republican members of tho
hoUte laid plans last night for a vigorous
organized opposition to the Underwood
tariff bill. Thb caucus ordered the
preparation of amendments to, tho Un
derwood bill providing for a nonpartisan
tariff board and for revisions of the cot
ton and wool schedules of tho tariff. Re
publican members of the houso ways and
means committee were Instructed to have
the?e amendments ready to bo presented
to tho caucus next Thursday.
Tho resolution endorsing tho tariff
When the caucus met a lengthy de
bat resulted In n decision to make the
meeting a public affair. In the course of
the nrgumcnt Representative Towner of
Iowa and Representative Sloan of Ne
braska criticised the activity of President
Wilson In connection with tho framing of
tho democratic tariff bill,
board was passed with but little .op
position, but the cotton and wool sched
ules evoked n rather heated controversy
bttween minority trader Mann and
Representative Lcnroot ot Wisconsin, a
progressive republican. Representative
I.onroot wanted the caucus to endorso
the schedules framed by tho republicans
of the ways and means committee In the
last congress, based on the report of the
tariff board and offered as a substitute
to the democratic cotton and wool ollls
passed by the last house. The entire
matter was referred to the republican
members of the ways and means
ml I tee.
Ths question of making Uio caucus a
public meeting kept the icpumicons in
secret session for more than an hour.
As less than half tho rcpuullqan ropre
santatlves were present. It was decided
to open the doors to tho press for to
night's meeting and to allow tho questions
of maklnc future caucuses open, to be
fettled at a caucus noxt week after the
democratic tariff bill l reported to the
house. Minority Leader Mann offered the

Washington, April iL-The attention
of tho State department which has.lately
been given to a vexatious problem from
the wounding of American soldiers and
othor American citizens ntong tho Mexi
can border was directed today toward the
serious situation resulting from tho slay
ing of a petty officer and a sailor from
tho United States cruiser Callforna at
Guaymas. Charles D. Taylor, consular
agent at Guaymas, In reporting the
deaths to tho department said a strict
Investigation was being made.
Shot l.y Official.
' Tho shooting was dona by the chief of
police of Guaymas and as American sail
ors going ashore In a foreign country
Invariably go unarmed, officials hero will
Insist that tho circumstances of tho slay
ing bo probed to the bottom.
If the Mexican authorities are unable
to show that thero was a provocation for'
the attack by the armed police, serious
consequences may ensue. It was pointed
out that tho double killing might be taken
ss an Indication of the Inadequacy ot tho
present government and have an Influonce

Tho new rebel movement has made
greater progress than has the provisional
government In suppressing Insurgency
and it no longer Is a secret that the
condition of tho treasury Is such as will
'not permit tho continuation ot military
operations much longer. This has been
publicly admitted by tho Mexican
minister of the Interior, Garcia Qranados.
T,ho chamber of deputies has not ap
proved the proposed foreign loan, but Its
failure to tako up this matter Is said
to be duo to a desire to avoid further
embarrassing the finance department
which so far has been unable to arranre
for the flotation of the loan, notwlth
standing recent assurances to that effect
from London. It is assumed by the
government that Its inability to lisuo the

Further complicating tho financial
difficulties of the government Is tho
steady Increase In tho exchange rate,
which within a week has mounted from
practically parity to 2C0, and that rate
only Is available 'to 'favored patrons. In
an offort to check 'the upward tendency
of the exchange .rate the minister of
finance Is urging congress to authorize
an Increase of 10 per cent In the export
tax on gold. Tills has brought Mexicans

You will enjoy better health if you tone up the action of your I
liver occasionally. Because in winter there is relatively heavier a

the sluggish flow of blood through the liver.

lTtBMONT, Neb.. April 12. (Special
TeleBram.) The .$C3,C00 libel suit brought
by Judge Esteile against the Omaha Dally
News and Rev . F. Folman growing
out ot tho publication by the paper of a
letter criticising tho Judge shortly before
the August. 1911 primaries, has occupied
the attention of the district court since
The plaintiff closed his case yesterday
and -was the principal witness. He claimed
that by reason of the publication he wnsJ
damaged in Mb feelings and general repu
tation. He denied he had ever liad Tom
Dennlson -as a visitor at his house, but
admitted that he had called at the Bud-
wetsor saloon on 'business. Tlio Diamond
pool hall Injunction -was also gone over.
Rev. B. F. Felmun, one of tlio defend
ants, took tho stand this morning and
swore that the letter was written after
an examination of the political and social
conditions as an appeal to the better ele
ment. Himself Rnd attorneys denied that
the letter attacked tho Judicial Integrity
of the Judge or corruption in office.
Jf M. Bell, president of a negro club.
which according' to the witness took an
active part in the primary, said he saw
the plaintiff around the preolnct at the
time of the primary and that he went
through an alley. His club he said had
no use for the "Third ward crowd," and
opposed the candidate they favored.
John Scharf, who, Judging trom his tes
timony as to tils occupation, must have
known every saloon and dive and gam
bling house In Omaha for years back,
explained -how the primary was conducted
at the precinct where he officiated as
challenger. Charley Mooro, he said got
him to take the place. The gang- he
said had got names for the repeaters,
locating them at empty houses, room
ing houses and saloons. The -names had
been arranged by blocks, and a board
naa made with a small hollow block
representing a city block; the names and
residences were plaoed In these recep
tacles. The repeaters would corns in and
recelro a oard taken from ono of the
receptacles, be handed a marked ballot
by the judges and then vote and they
all voted or ,EteUo. Vi'hen he cams
a second or third time he would get
'another card and name. In this way
thero was no repetition. Mahoney ob
jected to this kind of evidence tor the
reason that all this occurred after the
publication of tho article. Dunn argued
that It was competent as it showed that
lr. Folman told the truth when he
wrote the article.
After a spirited argument 'between Ma
honey -and Baxter, Senator Brown and
Loomls. Judgo Hollenbeck sustained the,
objection. Tha case, will probably take
two or three days more.
