Facts of Inefficient Man
Going Into Place.
UNFAIR TELEGRAMS SENT
Washington, Aug. 10. Senator
Townsend, republican, of the nsus
committee, made a statement in the
senate today supporting the declara
tions of Charles E. Hughes that E.
Dana Durand, former director of the
census, was .emoved from office to
make a vacancy for political reasons
and taking issue with Secretary Red
field's rejoinder that Mr. Durand re
"The secretary of eommer.e says
Mr. Durand resigned," said Senator
Townsend. "That is not correct.
The fact is that Secretary Redfield
called on Durand in Aoril and stated
that he desired his position. Durand
replied that much important work
was in progress and that he ought to
be allowvd to finish it. The next
day Mr. Harris' (William I. Harris)
nomination was sent to the senate,
and the next day it was announced
that Mr. Turand had resigned."
Senator Townsend said he had ex
plained the facts to the census coin
mittee and delayed the confirmation
of H; -ris.

tor Townsend. "Mr. Durand was
practically removed. He resigned
under pressure after he had stateil he
ought to remain until the census re
ports were completed. The telegrams
sent out by Secretary Redfiele abso
lutely were unfaithful to thr facts.
Mr. Harris was appointed f polit

after Mr. Durand was forced out of
Senator Smith, democrat, of
Georgia, said he "desired to congrat
ulate the other side in that they have
at last found an issue. My criticisms
of the president and secretary of com
merce in this matter," Senator Smith
continued, "is.,.that they ,did not re
move Mr. Durand frankly and'opehty
from office. He was inefficient as an
executive officer. There was waste
of money, duplication jpl work and
carelessness-of management in his
administration. He was a man ut
terly without executive capacity of
the kind needed in a director of the
Durand Not Issue.
Senators Stone and Hardwick re
torted that the republicans seemed
pleased at having found an issue. Mr.
Harris is now a member of the Fed
eral Trade commission.
Senator Penrose said that Durand
was not the issue.
"The issue here," he said, "is that
the secretary of commerce deliber
ately and publicly stated that Durand
was not removed, and it later turns
out that he was removed and the sec
retary of commerce, to put it mildly,
is detected in deliberately misrep
resenting the facts to the American
people. I am not a fanatical civil
service reformer myself, but I abhor
the hypocrisy which characterizes
this whole transaction."

Acting Mayor Butler lias made the

Insists Upon Protection for the
Farmer as Well as the
Man in Business.
HE IS FOR PREPAREDNESS
Grand Forks, N. D., Aug. 10.
Charles E. Hughes, republican presi
dential nominee, told an audience of
farmers in the Auditorium here to
day that he believed in a protective
tariff that would protect them as well
as the men in the factories.
"I believe in a protective tariff,"
Mr. Hughes said. "I believe in pro
tection without abuse. I think that is
"Our opponents, who for generations
have told us that it was contrary to
the constitution of the United States
to have duties except for the purpose
of revenues, are now telling us that
there is an economic revolution and
that perhaps we can have duty on
dye stuffs and a nonpartisan commis
sion. But I believe in trusting those
who really accept the doctrine pi pro
tection with its enforcement. And I
believe in protection for the farmers
just as 1 believe in protection for the
men in the factories.",
Mr. Hughes repeated his views on
preparedness, saying that he stood
for reasonable preparedness.
"Weakness breeds insults and in
sults breed war," he said. "I stand
for the protection of American rights.
Firm insistence upon American
rights, backed by reasonable prepar
edness, means peace and security."
Crisp weather, so cold 'iat over
coats were necessary, greeted the
Shortly before noon Mr. Hughes
left for Fargo, N. D., where he will

Mysterious Death at
Chicago May be Due
To Suicide Pact
Chicago, Aug. 10. Because of the
continued illness of Mrs. Marie
Davis, the inquest on the death
of her husband, Morse Davis, was
postponed today for a week, after
several witnesses had testified con
cerning the finding of his body in
his apartment in a Michigan avenue
hotel yesterday. Mrs. Davis told the
police yesterday that she and her hus
band had taken poison by mistake for
salts, but detectives hint that finan
cial reverses might have led the
couple, who came here from Van
couver, B. C, to enter into a suicide
John Russell, a detective from the
South Clark street station, testified
that his investigations so far led hm
to believe that Davis was temporarily
embarrassed in finances.
Dr. P. B. Welsh, the hotel physi
cian, testified that he did not believe
the Davises had entered a suicide
Morse Davis, son of the dead man,
is on his way here from Vancouver,
according to the police.

RAIL UNION HEADS
Heads of Brotherhoods at
Meeting With Mediators Re

MB. HANGEB IS HOPEFUL
New York, Aug. 10. The United
States board of mediation and con
ciliation held its first conference to
day wtih the representatives of the
four railroad brotherhoods of em

through mediation, a country-wide
strike to enforce the employes' de
mand for an eight-hour basic day and
time and a half for overtime.
Nothing was officially disclosed as
to the success the mediators met, but
it was learned on good authority that
the brotherhoods had shown no dis
position to modify their demands.
"The status is unchanged," was the
only comment which A. B. Garretson,
head of the Conductors' brotherhood,
was willing to make after the confer

face," said G. W. W. Hanger, one of
the three members of the mediation
board, "the situation may be cleared

Today's meeting with the men was
held in a down town assembly hall
and was attended not only by the
chiefs of the four brotherhoods the
employes' official spokesmen but by
the 600 delegates of the unions who
arc here. It lasted less than one
hour. Outsiders were barred.
It was assumed that the mediators,
as was the case at the first conference
yesterday with the railroad managers,
sought to learn from the men how far
they were willing to go in making
concessions which would bring both
sides to common ground as a basis of
Brotherhoods Stand Finn.
The brotherhood chiefs told them,
however, it was learned, that they
were still firm for their demands as
originally presented to the railroads.
While expressing their appreciation
of the efforts of the mediators, it was
said that they informed them that
they saw little chance of reaching a

Crisis in the News Print Paper
Situation Will Come in October
Washington, Aug. 10. The crisis
in the news print paper situation,
which already has cut down news
paper profits enormously, will not be
reached till late in October, when
contracts come up for renewal, ac
cording to reports received from
many sources by the Federal Trade
commission. The presidential elec
tion, together with the European war,
is expected to increase an already
unparalleled demand for news print
which manufacturers tell the trade
commission they will hardly be able
to meet. This year for the first time
thev have not been able to lay up
a large reserve during the summer.
1 he trade commission s report on
its investigation of news print prices,
it was announced today, will be pub
lished not later than October 1, re
gardless of whether congress still is
in session. Probably a brief extract
will be Riven out two weeks before
hand summarizing the findings. As
yet the mass of material has not been
sufficiently digested for officials to
indicate definitely its trend.
The great question in deciding j
whether there has been collusion
among the manufacturers to boost
prices unduly is said to be whether
the increased demand for paper has
been entirely, disproportionate to the
increased production. "Manufactur
ers claim that publishers are using 20
per cent more paper tnan ever be
fore." Consumption figures present
ed to the commission, however, vary
widely. G. F, Steele, secretary of the
News Print association, has estimated
that figures for June show the largest
daily production of news print ever
recorded. Shipments, he declared,
represented 99 per cent of thia pro
duction. None of the substitutes for pulp
recently suggested is commercially
feasible, according to officials of the
various bureaus interested. Cotton
stalks, most frequently mentioned,
would be prohibitively expensive to
collect, they say. The same situation
holds for corn stalks, broom corn,
rice straw and flax. As yet the ex
periments have not passed the labora
tory stage and so far as is known
no commercial use of the discoveries
is contemplated anywhere.
PLANS OF SENATE
Republican Caucus Insists Ma
jority Take Responsibility
for Congress Adjournment.
TEXT OF THE BESOLUTION
Washington, Aug. 10. Republicans
of the senate in conference today de
clined to accept the legislative pro
gram submitted yesterday by the
democratic steering committee with
a view to adjournment of congress be
fore September 1. Those who were
inclined to agree were outvoted by
senators demanding action on the im
migration bill at this session.
Senate democrats already have de
termined in .caucus that the immigra
tion bill should be1 made the unfin
ished business of the senate when
congress meets in December. Wheth
er the action of the republicans to
day will prolong the session beyond
September 1 could not be foretold.
Democratic leaders said they thought
it would make no difference with
plans for bringing the session to a
close and was taken merely to empha
size the fact that the republicans did
all in their power to get a vote on the
immigration bill before the national
Text of Resolution.
After two hours' deliberation on the
democratic proposal that no contested
legislation be taken up except the
shipping, revenue, workmen's com
pensation and appropriation bills and
conference reports, the republican
conference adopted s resolution de
claring: "The power to control both leg
islation and adjournment rests with
the democratic majority in congress.
The republican senators reserve the
right to support or oppose or re
quest action on any legislation now
pending and they further urge that
the immigration, bill shall be taken
up, considered and acted on at this
The compromise program offered
by the democrats yesterday would
have eliminated from the legislative
program one measure in which pro
gressive senators are interested, the
corrupt practices bill, and they are
said to nave insisted in the confer
ence today that they would be party
to no agreement which would pre
vent them from demanding a vote
on that measure. No mention of this
bill was made, however, in the con

taken Here today by the National
Doctrinal congress of the Christian
church, following a spirited debate on
the subject by Rev. S. S. Lappiri of
Cincinnati and Rev. Charles Morrison
of Chicago. The question at stake
was whether persons who had re
ceived baptism in churches which do
not practice immersion snouia DC aa
mitted to the Christian church with'
out that ceremony. Lappin termed
the unimmersed "Plugged nickels"
and "Corn thieves," while Morrison
asserted that churches which would
not receive unimmersed members
from other churches were "sinful."
They called each other "falsifiers."
