WASHINGTON, July 38. In another
stormy session today tho democratic
members of the house banking and cur
rency committee found themselves un
able even to agree to disagree on tho
administration currency bllL They ad
journed until Monday when, after Presi
dent Wilson haa had a talk with Repre
sentative Itagsdale of South Carolina,
who presented to the committee the so
called Insurgent amendments to the bill
yesterday, the struggle to reach some
sort of an agreement will be resumed.
While the committee marked time to
day during a session of the house that
demanded the presence of its members
cn the floor, President Wilson had con
ferences with Representative Wlngo, who
has opposed several parts of the admin
istration bill ana with Representative
Qlass, the chairman of the committee,
following which It was planned that the
bill be taken out of the hands of the
democratla members of the committee
nnd bo sent to a house caucus it a 'rote
demonstrated they were unable to agree.
Confusion Prevails.
Accordingly when tho conference met
after tho house adjourned, Representa
tive Wlngo offered a motion that the
bill be submitted to a democratic caucus
to be called a week from Monday and
that the commlttoo members In the mean
time thresh out as many of their differ
ences as possible. Representative Rags-
dale offered a motion to send tho bill
to tho caucus Immediately without any
recommendation and with all amend
ments pending. Other motions followed
In quick succession and confusion ensued.
Tho discussion become rather acrimoni
ous, Representative Ragsdalo calling
Chairman Glass to order for a published
statement that tho chairman believed the
committee unabto to agree. Chairman
Glass repudiated the statement
Representative Korbly interrupted Rep
resentative Bulkeley'a discussion of the
pending motion to ask a question and
continued his interruption to moke a
statement Representative Bulkeloy arose
to ask "why tho members of this com
mltteo wero so discourteous to each
other.' Representative Korbly dis
claimed any intention to bo discourteous,
Representative WUsoa of Florida
wanted to know If tho oharga of dis
courtesy applied to him, and Representa
tive Bulkeley retorted that his statement
Maid ba lalirymHii fer each arMmber

confusion the various motions to' send
tho bill to conference were laid on tho
table and tho committee ndjoursed unt'l

want tho prevailing laws changed Throne
or more ways. From all tho dcBlre Is to
supplant the present ineffective, hit-and-miss
method by business like, offlclent
mothods that will make taxation more
universal and more equitable.
A few quotations from among the let
ters received by tho tax commlnslon dur.
ing the last day or so are as followsi
County Assessor Owens of Sherman
county: "More time shbuld be had f r.r '
tho county assessor to do hla work. Un
der tho present system the work comes
all at once, Inexperienced help must bo
employed and errors creep in that nro
never discovered and that are carried to
the end."
County Treasurer fJUHlan of Nemnha
county: "Change' the trme of assessment
from April to October so money may be
available for all funds on January J.
Also do away with all poll taxes. Find
some set method for real estate assess
ment." County Assessor Bryan of Cass oountyf
"Publish tho tax schedules as fast as
they como In. Let the world know how
much the people have. Let the county
assessors appoint the precinct assessors.

Uniform method for accomplishing their
Mlohael Snell, Greeley county assessor.
says: "Make county and state boards In
spect divisions personally before they
alter assessments In their work as equal
ization bodies. Adjustment of complaints
under the present law Is a nuisance
nothing more."
II. H. Olson, who Is Polk county as
sessor, says: "Make some law that will
compel bankers to submit the names ot
their depositors nnd tho amounts ot
money they have in the banks."
County Assessor Bartlott ,of "Valley
county says: "Give assessors access to
bank ledgers it would bo hard on tho
bankers, but farmers, too, havo their
hardships to undergo about assessment
time. Results achieved will likely come
nearer exemplifying the canons ot unl
versallty and equality of taxation."
"Why assess anything but tanslblo
proportyT" asks County Treasurer Dar
lington of Madison county. "This can
be seen and cannot well be concealed,
therefore the chances of getting It on
tho tax lists are good. Why should per
jury of half a dosen taxpayers of a pro
cinct make a hundred small but .truthful
taxpayers Buffer when the county board
raises that precinct's valuation!"

W'ASHJKGTON, July 25. Attorney
Ocneral McReynoids' action in testing the
applicability of the Sherman anti-trust
law to the "telephono trust" In tho civil
suit filed at Portland,- Ore., against tho
alleged monopojy on the Pacific coast
revived today discussion of the probable
nltimato policy of the Wilson adminis
tration toward the general telephone sit
uation. Tho selection ot one of three
suggested courses, enforced competition
under the Sherman law, tho toleration
and encouragement of monopoly under
federal regulation, as In tho case of the
railroads, government ownership or
operation of the telephone and the malls.
While Attorney General McRoynold
has not reachod a hard and fast conclu
sion, It Is understood that hla present dis
position Is to leave tho general telephono
trust problem to the Interstate Commerce
commission for the time being and not
attack the situation as a whole under tho
Sherman law until at least a reasonable
tlmo haa elapsed to show the results .of
tho commisslon'a Investigation now under
way. A governmental policy Is expected
to bo evolved out of that Inquiry.

CALUMET, Mich.. July 2C Reports,
that Governor W. N. Ferris would come
to Houghton tonight to help arrange a
settlement of the strike of 15,000 cop"per
mine employes In the northern peninsula
brought out an unofficial statement to
night from tho mlno managers that they
would welcome the governor's presence.
Any plans, for arbitration undor the
direction of the governor were soon dis
pelled, however, by the announcement
that Mr. Forrls had no present Intentions
of coming to the copper country or of
withdrawing the militia which Is pro
tecting the mines against any further
outbreak of the strikers.
Aakii Governor to Come.
The following tolegratn was sent to the
governor's office in ltns!ng this after
noon by C. E. Mahonay, vice president ot
the Western Federation of Miners:
"We respectfully request that you coma
hore and Investigate the Industrial dis
pute In tho copper mining district and
use your good offices to effoct a settle
ment and to direct that tho troops bo
used, to preserve peace Instead - of to
operate the mines as seems to be tho
present Intent." , ,
The company managers stated un
officially that they, too, would welcome
the goycrnor. but would give no Inti
mation that proposals to arbitrate the
strike would be accepted by them. They
said this would be construed by the
strlkors as a tacit , recognition of th?
Disorders Oconr Spasmodically.
Disorders occurred spasmodically In
tbe outlying districts ot tho mining coun
try today, but in no cose did the strikers
manifest the spirit which appeared la
the attack upon Calumet and Uecla
properties yesterday.
A call toT troops como from the south
range when union sympathizers drove
away tho Bherlffts deputies at the Baltic,
Trl-Mountaln and other mines, but an
Investigation by nillltla commanders con
vinced them that the situation was not
serious enough to require the presence of
state soldiers.
It was the consensus of opinion among
the officers of the three companies al
ready hero that the storm center would
remain In and about Calumet. Accord
