Washington, Jan. 27. Admitting
that the Payne tariff lav would have
to be justified by results, Representa
tive Boutell of Illinois, defended the
new law in the house.
The president had been criticised,
he said, because he had declared the
Payne act was the test tariff law ever
passed by Congress. ';The common
sense and sagacity of President Taft
will be recognized by his re-election
in 1912," he said., and added: "It has
been claimed that the tariff act has
not brought prosperity and that it
will retard prosperity."
When the democrats applauded this
last statement and laughed in deris
ion. Mr. Boutell sharply rebuked them.
"Why is it," he asked, "that the

misfortune or prediction of adversity?" J

ed. The stage of the waters this morn
ing exceeded all records back to
1615, and up to .12 o'clock the river
continued to rise at the rate of 3-4
inch an hour.
Perhaps the most alarming feature
of the situation in the morning was
the fissure at the Autueil viaduct at
the foot of Paris. Should this give

The valley of the Seine now pre

is miles wide for twenty-five miles

The subsidence at noon -continued
for thirty minutes, amounting to three

claimed that the fall was due to the
rapid overflow into the Bery quarter
from points where the Seine had
broken its barriers. Experts, ; said
that the river was still rising this af

should be reached at 3 o'clock. The
