WASHINGTON, March 3 "If Andrew
Carnegie, who continually asserts the
cause of ,Qreat Britain, were the citizen
of any other nation, he would Ue charged
with treason," declared Senator Cham
berlain today, In the course of the Pan
ama tolls debate. "He haa never hesi
tated to spend his millions In endeavoring
in Inculcate a reciprocal feeling for Groat
Britain in the minds of the people of the
Mr. Chamberlain's attack on Mr. Car
regie came as the climax to an hour of
hot argument, during which Senator
Jones, who also opposed a repeal of the
tolls exemption, had read, under protest,
several letters attacking the contention
of President Wilson.
The debate was cut off when the sub
ject went over to tomorrow tinder par
.tones nends Letter.
Senator Jones had read a letter from
William B. Markln of 20 Highland street,
Boston, assailing President Wilson's
contention and saying: "The president
should be recalled to the classic shades
of Princeton Instead of being permitted
to continue to bulldoze accredited repre
sentatives of the American people In
Senator Hoke Smith, Senator Lewis and
other democrats failed by various parlia
mentary tactics to prevent the reading
of the letter.
Senator Thomas, democrat, Interrupted
the reading of similar letters to ask Mr.
Jones' opinion of the president's motives
Jn urging repeal.
"I believe, the president to be acting
honestly and In accordance with his beBt
Judgment." said Senator Jones. "I am
Rlmpjy reading these letters to show the
feeling and Indignation among the or
dinary peonle of thSc3Ufftfrr-" - -
Senator Thomaa protested "against the
reading of letters Impugning the motives
of the president. He declared senators
should make such charges directly.
Senator Thomas criticised Senator
Jones as detracting from .the dignity of
th6 senate by reading letters that almost
charged the president with treason. Sen
ator Jones responded ho was not criticis
ing thfl president, but believed his corre
spondents had grasped the idea that the
Voople and congress were entitled to
know why congress should repeal free
"Should foreign relations justify ,the
course, I am sure congress will support
the president. Irrespective of party, but
it Is entitled to know the reason on which
It aots," replied Senator Jones.
Senator Thornton contended that the
Markln letter was improper and should
not have been reoelved by the senate.
The incident of the letters ended with
Senator Chamberlain taking up his reso
lution to repeal the provision of the rivers
and harbors bill of 1884, Which forbids the
levying of toll on inland waterways. He
repeated his charge that the "Insidious
influences" behind the Panama canal re
peal were the Canadian Paclflo and other
ttanscontlnental railroads, but he hast
ened to add that he did not mean to in
timate the president was actuated by
those influences. He referred to the
president aa a "thoroughly patriotic gen
tleman, who believes in whatever he
does and that he la doing It for the best
Interests of the country."

Seidel and Bading
Named in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE, Wis., March 25.-Mayor
Bading, nonpartisan, and Emll Seidel, so
cialist, were nominated for mayor at yes
terday's primary and wlU figure in the
municipal contest for chief executive of
Milwaukee on April 7.
Seidel led the field with 21.064 votes,
against 20,022 for Bading. Former Mayor
David S. Ilose ran third with 17,611 and
Theobald OUen last with 2,S75. All but
Seidel were on tho non-partisan tickets.
Indications are that the socialists nomi
nated six aldermen at large, they being
carried along with the vote of Seidel.
Yesterday's primary was the first non
partisan contest ever held In Milwaukee.
While Seidel polled more than 21,000
votes yesterday, against 17,000 at the pri
mary of two years ago, he received some
30,000 when elected mayor four years ag9.

The commission then appealed to the

VALLEJO, Cnl., March 15. The fact
that a typewriting machine waa needed
by one of the United States warships
now In Mexican waters was responsible
for a "wur scare" at tho Mare Island
navy yard yesterday.
Information leaked out that the collier
Justin, which had been ordered to Mexico,
would put In at San Diego, and a rumor
was circulated that the purpose of the
stop waa to take aboard ammunition for
the flchtlng vessels stationed off Marat
Ian and other Mexican ports.
Captain Frank M. Bennett, commandant
at the yards stuck a plu in the war-talk
bubble last night with the following state
ment: "The collier will stop at San Diego to
pick up an extra typewriter now on board
one of the vessels there. If any war talk
has arisen from the order, kindly blame
It on the typewriter. It aeems that one
of the vessels In Mexican waters Is shy
a machine, and therefore the collier must
tako one down there. Typewriters are
indispensable In modern warfare."

an amended motion for a new hearing
filed by the lad'a attorneys, M. L, Dono
van and T. A. Donohoe.
They are fighting to secure, for Ralph
his right to a trial of his case by a Jury,
whtch la called by lawyers his right to
"his day in court." A large part of the
11,000 already haa been spent for ex
penses, while Ralph has received no
money for hla Injury In his own namo
and as yet has no artificial limb, but la
compelled to hobble to and from school
As grounds for the assertion that the
ends of Justice were defcatod by Judge
English's decision auatatnlng the settle
ment of tho railroad's lawyer, J. A. C.
Kennedy, with Ralph's father, the fol
lowing allegations are made;
To have oustalned plaintiffs motion
could not have prejudiced the rights of
the railroad company, as It would only
havo given plaintiff his day in court and
hl constitutional right to a trial by Jury.
By overruling aatd motion plalntlffn
only recourse Is an appeal to the supreme
court, which w1ll require plaintiff to
wait at leant two years for a decision.
Defeat Plaintiff's lllnhts.
Should the supreme court sustain plain
tlfra contention It would nevertheless
mean only the defeat of plaintiff's rights,
aa the whereabouts of the witnesses two
yeara hence will undoubtedly be un
known; that the physical facts relied
upon by plaintiff to prove the negligence
of the railroad company and which con
tributed to plalntlffa Injury will be
changed and perhaps entirely removed.
All costs of appeal must be advanced
by plaintiff, whether plaintiff's conten
tion Is right or wrong, whereas to sua
tain said motion said railway company
wduld not evon be prejudiced by payment
of costs, unless found liable for plaintiffs
It la also alleged In tho lost legal move
mada In Ralph's behalf that Judge Eng
lish erred In making a finding on tho
facta In pafslng on a motion, and that
he declined to call witnesses into court
to question them as to the facts. It Is
alleged that the testimony of Uie brake
man who pulled Ralph from beneath a
car nnd of other trainmen and of a num
ber of boys who saw the accident, In
cluding one lad who picked up a piece of
bone from Ralph's leg, waa available if
the Judge had consented to hear It
One allegation says that tho court erred
In finding that Ralph's "adjustment"
with the railroad company's lawyer was
"fair and reasonable," when there waa
no evidence that the boy himself had in
fact received anything.

LONDON, March 2S.-Colonel John Seely

of stato for war In the British cabinet
The resignation of Colonel Seely fol
lowed quickly after the publication today
of the White Paper giving details of the
crisis In the British army, whoso officers
refused to participate In active operations
egalnut tho Inhabitants of Ulster, who
had prepared to offer armed resistance
to the Introduction of homo rute.
Colonel Seely In his valedictory address
to the House of Commons, denied that
King George had taken any Initiative of
any kind In the army crisis. He said;
"The suggestion Is absolutely without
foundation In the broadest sense. His
majesty took no Initiative of any kind."
The correspondence between Colonel
Seely and the officers In Ireland had
astounded tho country and In tho opinion
of seasoned politicians demanded one of
two courses the cashiering of the secre
tary of war, or tho resignation of the
entire cabinet. The first courso was de

Amid ministerial cheers and derisive
