That the wool tarff revision bill would pass house over the president's veto is quite apparent today. The vote late yesterday on the compromise bill, as report- ed by the conference committee, was 206 to 9D, or considerably more than a required two-thirds for passing over the veto. The bill went to tie senate today and the free list bill was also ex- pected to be reported in both houses, but without an agreement. No vote will be taken on vetoes, it is promised by Chairman Un- derwood, before Friday. STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU, Munsey Building. WASHINGT9N, Aug. of the greatest victories yet won in the march of progressive government was aj3ecisjon_pf the conferees on the bill and the farmers' free list to hold their conferences in public. In the past the conference room has been the place where much of the "dirty work" of legislation has been done. The reactionary leaders of both parties, legislating for the "in- proceeded on the theory that the thing to do was to slap legislation through by making concessions, if necessary, and get it into conference. Behind the closed doors of the confer- ence chamber, where secrecy reigned, wise and salutary provisions were killed, jokers were inserted and, in general, legislation was suit the men who were doing the doc- toring. When Senator Aldrich was on deck looking after the interests, he used to make some very remarkable eon- cessions while legislation was being considered in the senate and those did not know how skillfully .he .had played his hand often thought he had_ overlooked a point, but when the legislation came out of conference it was usually seen that what he had conceded in the senate had been re- jected by the conferees and then ?t became palpable that he had merely rushed the legislation along to the knowing he could handle it there. The first long step toward doing away with dark-lantern methods of considering hills in secret conference wag taken when the conferees on the wool and free list bills, meeting in -the identical chamber where Senator Aldrich so long held forth, threw open the doors and invited the reporters and the public to step inside. It wns a most remarkable proceeding anil over-shadowed in Importance the fact that a final agreement was reached ou the wool tariff Senator LaPollette brought about tins re.orm in a very unexpected man- ner. When, the conferees met it was a general feeling that the tariff legislation was in its most critical stage. There was a flock of corre- spondents and-local reporters in the offing. The committee, into secret conclave. When the dcors were closed Sena- tor LaFollette made an announcement which ran something like this: "Gentlemen, I think the meetings of this conference committee and all other conference committees should 'be public.

Harry N. Atwood planned to start at this after- noon on the second leg of his great flight to New York and Boston. At his rate of progress Monday he could reach Boston within seven days in- stead of ten, as he had planned. Much of the distance was covered faster than a mile a minute. With man and machine looking fit to tinue without stopping the dug m the mud of Aviation field, At- wood was not flying all that time. He tarried two hours and a half at Springfield and two hours more at Pontiac. Atwood appears to have broken the American record for a single day night. The best previous American record was made by Atwood himself' when he flew 148 miles from Atlantic Uty to Baltimore on July 10. 1911 The best international <Toss-country record is held by Andre Beaumont, who in the Paris-Rome contest cov- ered 401 miles in a single day, but in tms instance he made three landings while Atwood landed only twice be- tween start and finish. "I am so far ahead of my schedule that I won't even need to hurry At- wood said laughingly when asked when he would start the second lee of his flight.

Ovington was uninjured, but it was necessary to add a new plane to his machine. J. A. D. McCurdy. flying near the ground, approached too near the club house of the Chicago Yacht club. The planes of his car struck a number of high voltage electric wires running to the club houfe, and in a minute the canvas and oil covered wood of the planes were on fire.

The police department would be given a separate building. Business men throughout the down- town section have long favored such a change, believing that the fire .and in-A'police stations should not be located lvul on a principal business street Local !men have already planned to offer the city for the Central sta- tion property and if they- are the suc- cessful bidders, they will erect a new four-story business and office build- ing, a building which would he a credit to the city and greatly improve the business section. There is no disposition to rush the- matter through but the city is now in a position to make a good deal, both in the sale of the old property and-the' acquirement of new and more sites for the departments." The consol- idation of the Nos. 1 and 2 houses would be eqaully desirable as they are now too close together. iPOMtKENE TO Ohioan Named to Succeed Bailey on Important Senate Com- mittee.
