DIRECT ELECTION" OF SENATORS.
Hill ra the Senate Amending the
CVmsUtutloo Tb BrUtow Amend
mment Giving Federal Gorm.
ment Supervision of Such Elee
tions Waa Adopted.
Washington, D. C.. June 12. The
Senate to-night, by 64 to 24, passed
the resolution amending the ConiU
tution to provide for election of Sen
ators by direct popular vote.
The Brlstow amendment, giving to
the Federal Government supervision
of such elections, was adopted, 44 to
14, the Vice-President casting the
deciding ballot. The House has al
ready passed the resolution.
Senator Reed, of Missouri, protest
ed against the Vice-President cast
ing his deciding vote. An amend
ment by Senator Bacon Qualifying
the Brlstow amendment to prohibit
Federal supervision of election unless!
the State Legislature refuse or fail!
to act was defeated, 46 to 43. The
resolution as amended was then fi
nally adopted, 64 to 24.
The debate on the resolution look-
ing to the election of United States j
Senators by direct vote of the people j
began shortly after noon. It soon I
became a political affair. Democratic
Senators criticised Senator Bristow's
change of attitude. Mr. Brlstow
framed the principal amendment, in
the nature of a substitute to the main
proposition and he sought to continue
the supervision of Senatorial elec
tions in Congress instead of delegat
ing it to the States, as proposed by
the House resolution. In the last ses
sion the Senator voted against an
amendment offered by Senator Suth
erland, of Utah, which would have
had the same effect as his own pro
vision of this session.
The Resolution Adopted.
"That in lieu of the first para
graph of Section 3 of Article 1 of
the Constitution of the United States
and in .lieu of so much of paragraph
two of the same section as relates to

of the Constitution when ratified by

goes into conference between the
Senate and House and some Senators
predicted that the House would re
fuse tQ accept it.
OHIO LEGISLATORS INDICTED.
Three Members Indicted on Charge of
Columbus, Ohio, June 9. Three
members of the General Assembly

Its investigation of legislative brib
ery is not complete but it will not

of the House Calendar Committee;
Representative George M. Nye, Pike
County, also a member of the Calen

tions; Stanley F. Harrison, Cuyaho
ga County, . Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms
of the Senate.
All were indicted twice and all fur
nished 5,000 on each indictment.
New indictments against Dr. Nye,

bribery charge, allege that he solicit
ed $700 and "certain moneys from Al
bert Corrodi, a local real estate agent,
and J. H. Bradford and J. H. Smith,
local merchants, to prevent a passage
of a bill to protect game birds. Har
rison was indicted for acting as in

Democratic party, through its Nation
al platform and on the stump, have
been for years demanding such a con
stitutional amendment. Now, when
the Republicans have acceded to their
demands, and are ready to join with
them in adopting this amendment,
the Democrats raise a new question
and declare that they are not in favor
of the amendment unless there shall
be tacked on to it a provision to re
peal Section 4 of. the Constitution of
the United States, which reads as
"Section 4. The times, places
and manner of holding elections
for Senators and Representatives
shall be prescribed in each State
by the Legislatures thereof; but
the Congress may at any time by
law make or alter such regula
tions, except as to the places of
The Republicans generally have ob-1
jected to changing Section 4 of the
Constitution on the ground that the!
law of the land as stated in that sec-j
ion has been in operation ever since j
the foundation of the Government,
and applies to the election of mem
bers of the House of Representatives
as well as to the Senators. The Dem
ocrats, on the other hand, contend
that when the election of Senators is
changed from a Legislature to the di
rect vote of the people, that then
Congress should have no control over
the election of both Senators and
Representatives. They claim that
there will be some danger of force
bills being enacted to affect the Con
stitutional amendments and election
laws affecting the colored .vote in
The absurdity of this contention is
seen at once from the fact that Con
gress has had this power ever since
the foundation of the Government, j
The Democrats of the House arei
threatening to defeat the amendment
unless the Republicans will agree to
the striking out of Section 4 from the
Constitution. This would seem to
show their hypocrisy and Insincerity
in claiming that they were in favor
of the election of Senators by the
people. 'r '; ij :

the past and have found this one of
the most effective ways of advertis

PRESIDENTS TRIBUTE TO NAVAL
Mr. Taft Presents 3fedala of Honor to
Six Sailors for Their Bravery I hir
ing an Accident on the North Da
kota. Washington, D. C, June 13. The
Cabinet was kept waiting to-day
while President Taft, aa Commander
in-Chief of the Navy, paid tribute to
six unlisted men in the service. In
th presence of Secretary of the Navy
Meyer and Captain Wiley, of the bat
tleship North Dakota, the President
presented the men with medals of
honor, the highest distinction which
this Government can bestow.
The President t poke in praise of
their heroic deeds when on Septem
ber S, 1910, an oil fuel expoaion on
the North Dakota killed three men,
put in jeopardy the lives of scores
of others, and placed the battleship
itself in danger. . Thomas Stanton
and Karl Westa, chief machinist's
mates; Patrick Reld and August
Holtz, chief water tenders; Char lea
C. Roberts, machinist's mate, first
class, and Harry Dlpscomb, water
tender, made up the honored half
dozen. These men waded in water op
to their waists, in dense smoke, on
bearable heat and fumes of burning
oil and gas and steam, to rescue their
comrades and to prevent further ex
plosion. In addition to the medals
of honor, a gratuity of $100 was
given to each man.
"It is a great pleasure to' me,
men," said President Taft in present
ing the medals, "to be the instru
ment of conveying to you the grati

yesterday, of W. F. Pounds, who waa
being brought to Tampa from Paw

captured. Pounds took the o fleer,
who was escorting him to this city
for trial, unawares and plunged
through an. open window of a fast
moving train, making good his es
cape. Pounds has given the officers
a hot chase since January 15th of

some foreign countries, and that he
should again escape, after once helng
in the clutches of the law, is some-
what discouraging to those who have
followed his trail so closely.
