MAGNATES PROMISE TO DISSOLVE TRUST PROGRAM IS OUTLINED FOR SESSION'S CLOSE Wisconsin Senator Wants Vote on Cotton Revision Before Adjournment, EDITORS FAVOR BILLS. CHICAGO, Aug. the answers from editors from every state in the union, the Chicago Tribune's poll of the wool bill, the farmers' free list bill and the cot- ton bill shows tfiat the majority favor the president signing the measures. The vote was 630 to 469. The western editors were ov- erwhelmingly in favor of the presi dent signing the bills wfriile east- ern editors did not seem so en- thusiastic about the measures. STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU, Munsey Building. WASHINGTON, Aug. all reports to the contrary it was learned from absolutely trustworthy inside sources that the conferees on tariff legislation" have reached a prac- tically complete agreement, both as to the wool bill and farmers' free list, and that the end of the special session of congress is almost in sight. The leaders of congress are now work- ing together for a get-away date not later than Saturday of next August a fair prospect that adjournment may come a day or two earlier. The full conference committee met today, and adopted 29 per cent as the duty on raw wool. Those wo are at all conversant with the situation in congress have known -all- along that the stories circulated far and wide to the effect that a dead- lock was likely o.ver tariff legislation could not properly be' characterised by any other term than tommyrot. With both the insurgents and demo- crats burning with a desire to put President Taft in a hole it was inevit- able that they should get together on a program to nut the tariff bills right up to the presi- dent and force him to act on them. To have stopped short of that .have deprived them of half of the joy of living. _ In the privacy of the conference cnamber Senator LaFoIlette and Rep- resentative Underwood have reached a tentative agreement which points the way to the final disposal of pend- ing tariff measures. This agreement provides for the following program of procedure: 1- On Monday the agreement will Only Way to Prevent Guggen- heim Coal Monopoly, Says Former President.

WOULD ALLOW EXCEPTION Says He Does Not Favor State-1 Owned Railways As a Gen- eral Thing, NEW YORK, Aug. the government should build and operate i a railroad from Controller Bay to the j coai sews in the interior of More Sensational Disclosures Alaska to prevent monopoly by the Guggenheims is the j Come ID PllPe Food Probe conclusion reached by former Pres- ident Roosevelt in an article entitled "Alaska Again' in the current issue of the Outlook. "In the eastern says Roose- velt, "we have suffered from the fact that the ownership of the coal and the ownership of the railways have been permitted to fall into the" same hands. The havoc such a combination can work was shown when, during the an- thracite strike, the people of a large section of the country were threatened with a winter coal famine which would have caused disasters as great as those of the civil war. "It is, to my mina, the duty of the United States government to prevent! a similar condition arising in Alaska. I do not believe in the policy of state- owned railways as a general thing: but I am quite willing to see the Pan- ama railroad owned and run by the government, as it actually is; and in the same way, if difficulty occurs in connection with what has been done in Controller Bay, 1 feel that it would be a good thing for the United States to build and operate the short line of railway (with its terminals) which would connect the bay with the coal fields.

The conference reports on the wool bill and the farmers' free list are to be called up on Monday for adoption in both branches of congress. 3.

The house probably will pass the bills over the executive's dis- approval, but. it is not anticipated that enough votes can be secured in the senate to override the veto. 5.

From every section of the empire con- gratulatory telegrams poured in on Premier Asquith today. By the pas- sage of the veto bill the house of commons is to be.the sole factor in making up the annual budget decid- ing what will be taxed, and running the British government. Heretofore, the house of lords had equal power with the commons in all e bill passed by its own members by a vote of 131 to 114 merely suspend the operation of finan- cial legislation and if the bill is re- passed by the commons it will be- come a law regardless of the upper house. The vote was on Viscount Morley's motion not to insist upon the lords' amendments to the bill. Between twen- ty- and thirty -conservatives voted with the liberals in order to prevent the creation of the new liberal peers, over to private developers on a lease- hold simple as possible, and on such terms as to guarantee an am- ple profit to those engaged in the work of development, the trouble in con- nection with the Alaska coal fields would vanish.." Roosevelt defends himself and Pin- cho't and Garfield in connection7 with the Eyale and Valdez 'Arm elimina- tions and says when these elimina- tions were made "not a revelation as regards the Guggenheim syndicate, or j any other syndic-ate, had been brought to my attention or, as far as I know, to the attention of any man in a re- sponsible position around me. and the public was wholly unaware of the ex- istence of any such state of things as the Ballinger investigation showed to exist. "Whether Mr. Garfield or any one else had been told that the Guggen- heims were engaged in a syndicate to! act in Alaska, I know not, for I never was informed; but, an any event, it was of no possible consequence, 'be- cause at that time nothing had devel- oped to show that they had become an exploiting syndicate tending to estab- lish a monopoly' in mining and trans- portation." WASHINGTON, Aug. there was absolutely no difference between the employment of Dr. Rusby for which Dr. Harvey W. Wiley was charged with violation of the law, and the employment of members of the Remsen pure food board, was the opinion expressed today by Dr. L. F. Kebler, of the bureau of chemistry, on the stand before the'house com-' mittee on expenditures in the depart- ment of agriculture.

It was learned also that Wi- leyndge. the most daring feat ever at- empted by an aviator.

The club, meantime, had se- cured a considerable portion- of the necessary guaranty for Beachey and took up the proposition.

"Officials of the marine hospital service already have been here, said Ford, "but I do not know what they are doing towards solving the difficul- ty, i know that the department has been paying much attention to. the situation in lake cities in regard to the pollution.of the water supply. "The individual health boards can do little except call public attention to the danger. Some general scheme under control of a central body is the only method by which the sewage? disposal problem can te :solTed. "The currents in the lake haye not been charted.
