Washington, July 9--All efforts in the senate Wednesday to alter or elim- i n a t e the l a b o r exemption clause of the sundry civil bill section, providing f u n d s for the enforcement of the anti- t r u ^ t law. were voted down. Two roll calls put t h e senate on record in favor of the exemption clause, which caused the veto of the last s u n d r y civil bill by President T a f t and which President Wilson, in a m e m o r a n d u m , made when he c i f f n e d the same measure, characterized as " u n j u s t i f i a b l e in character and principle."

The Mil carries an appropriation of 1 n ,n nun Washington, July 9.--Despite a wheat crop estimate this year of 930,000,000 bushels, the largest on record, no hope held out by the department of agriculture for greatly reduced prices. Such a large crop would augur low prices, acording to a statement today, were it not that the world crops of wheat in competing countries do not promise more than the average of recent years. Besides more than the usuual diversion of wheat from its use as food to be the use of feed for live stock may be expected because of the present relatively short supply of corn in sections where there la a promise of abundant wheat. SITUATION IN KANSAS. With corn selling in Kansas for about cents more per bushel than wheat, it is not surprising, officials say, that vheat should be consumed as feed by animal?. Kansas corn crop last year was only only 23,nfin,000 bushels, compared with the usual production of ;50,000.000 bushels This year's estimates are for a crop of 150,000,000 bushels of wheat. SOME FIGURES. It Is estmated that about 48,000,000 rusliels of wheat of last year's crop ·was consumed as animal food. Of the average a n n u a l production of 686,1)00,000 bushels of wheat d u r i n g the past five years, about 5Sl,000,rjijft were retained in this c o u n t r y and I15.uOO.000 bushels exported. If the domestic wheat requirements were reckoned with about ?.S bushels per capita, exclusive of seed, and 7S to SO million bushels for sf-ed and were applied to a population of S,63S,100. o f f i c i a l s say it would 'indicate a normal requirement of 522,770,000 plus seed requirement of 77,000,000 or a total of about 600,000,000. The statement adds that this would indicaate an available export supply for the crop of nearly 330.000,000 bushels, but there must be deducted from this a m o u n t the quantity used for live stock feeding estimated at approximately 75,0"i1,000 and possibly more. Even this would leave about 255,000,000 for export. 'Present indications,' says the department, "ore that during the coming season the democratic consumption ll be unusually large on acount of takings for live stock purposes and that the exportable surplus will find good foreign demand." WILL RESCUE One Woman Marooned in Arctic Ice Fields. Seattle, Wash., July 9--The revenue cutter Bear, with Captain Robert Bartlett, late of the StefanEson'a exploring ship Karluk will sail from Nome, according to advices received todav probably within a week for Wrangell Island, off the coast of Alaska to take off eighteen white men and four Eskimos, one of them a woman who havt been on the Island since March 10, when they arrived from the scene ol the wreck of the Karluk, which was crushed by the ice Jan. 10, north of Herald island. So far as is known none suffered any serious mishap. They have plenty of food and clothes. CONVICTS BREAK OUT IN ISLAND JAIL New York, N. T., July 3 --Another outbreak among the prisoners in the penitentiary at Blackwells Island occurred today as a sequel to the one last night in which several keepers were set upon and badly hurt. The trouble today happened in the tailor shop where a fire was started by the rebels and the power belting: that runs the machine was cut. Six ringleaders were put back in their cells. It was said that the prisoners m u t i n - ied as a protest against the refusal of the guards to restore yesterday's culprits to good standing. St. Paul, July 9--Dr. David Starr Jordan, president of Inland Stanford university, was elected president of the National Educational association at the annual business meeting here today. He was elected unanimously. Former President Swain automatically became first vice president. APPROVE WOMAN SUFFRAGE. The report of the committee on resolutions approving woman suffrage and equal pay for teachers resardleia of aei was adopted without a fight. Regarding woman suffrage the resolution says: "The association regards efficiency and merit, rather than sex as th« principle on which appointments and selections should be made and therefore declares itself in favor of the political equality of the sexes and equal pay for equal services." Women delegates were elated at the adoption of the report and declared they had won a notable victory. \VANT MORE PAT. Another report stating that the. salaries of teachers should be increased and adjusted to the standards of living required by the American teacher" was adopted. IS. POLICY SOON TO BE Washington Awaits Expression of Attitude. SHERMAN EXPOSES NEW TARIFF LAW Senator, In Speech at Centrallo, Flay", Wilson Regime. Centralia, July 9.--United States Serator Lawrence T. Sherman formally opened his candidacy here last night in a speech that kept his large audience in an uproar of enthusiasm from stnrt to finish. He a t t a c k e d the Democratic party's t a r i f f doctrines and said that President Wilson and the party have violated and repudiated their Baltimore platform. The occasion was a round-up of Republicans of the Twenty-third congressional district Representative men o:' the p a r t y were present from even' county in the district and it was u n a n - imously agreed t h a t the prospects for Republican success nest f a l l are as good ever in the h i s t o r y of the party. Washington, July 9--That the Washington government would give within a few days some manifestations of the policy it iniencJs to pursue to meet any ]*ew devt!onment in the Mexican situation was the beliei expressed today In m a n y quarters. President H i l t o n and his advi3'.-rs still awaited cfficial infor-nMien of the constitutionalists attitude toward a proposed peace conference with Huerta"s envoys. They declined to comment on reports, partially confirmed In Washington to the effect that the revolutionary leaders would not agree to a parley.
