tion makes an executive of Mr. Butler as
well as a traffic man.
Mr. Kutler. who Is at orenent out nf the I

assume his new duties with the Frisco.
Mr. Hutler and Receiver Biddle left Hous-
ton Wednesday for New Orleans the two
officials having spent several days to

is supposed that the preliminary arrange-
ment between them were made.
The opening of this new office for the
Southwest by the St. Louis and San
Francisco and the Chicago and Kaatern
Illinois and the appointment of Mr. But-
ler as general Southwestern agent came
In for much favorable comment from a
large circle of Mr. Butler's railway friends
In the city.
It was pointed out by all that "ram
Butler is primarily a Frisco man." and
the fnct that he has decide to remain an
official of the Frisco is not at all sur-
prising to his friends.

WARNING TO STAY
OFF ARMED LINERS
WILL BE DEFEATED
(Continued from Page One.)
House was palled to certain statements
In Senator Gore's speech this afternoon
the president authorized an unqualified
denial of any utterance to whlcji any
such meaning could be attached."
PRESIDENT RENEWED STAND
FOR NATIONAL HONOR.
It waa explained on his behalf that the
president had told the congressmen he
could not predict what would follow a
breaking off of diplomatic relations and
had expressed In the most vigorous terms
his hope that the United States would
not be drawn Into war and his determina-
tion to continue to bend Ids every effort
to prevent It. It. was denied that the
president said anything to convey th
Impression that ha desired the United
States to enter the war to shorten it or
for any other reason but he reiterated
the necessity of upholding the national
honor of the United States at all costs.
No attempt was made to minimise the
realization of the effect Senator Gore's
declaration might have on the foreign
situation at this time and on all sides
it was admitted to be probably the most
serious turn that has yet been given to
Behind the curtain of dramatic events
which shadowed the actual steps in the
president's fight for defeat of the antl-
admtnlstratlon resolutions and repudia-
tion of tne sentiment spread abroad that
a majority of congress is opposed to his
foreign policy the administration sup-
porters took drastic steps today to carry
out tha president's demand for a record
HOUSE COMMITTEE '
FAILED TO REPORT.
Faced by the possibility of Indefinite
delay In the house they transferred the
fight to the senate. After having put the
senate majority on record the fight will
be carried back to the other side of the
capltol. President Wilson again today
made It plain to Chalrfnan Flood"of the
foreign affairs committee that he wanted
one of the warning resolutions brought
out of the committee for a vote and de-
feated In the house. But after the com-
mittee had deliberated most of the day
on what form such a resolution should
take. It adjourned without action until
tomorrow noon. The president was In-
formed that on a canvass of the com-
mittee 10 members were in favor of re-
porting' tne resolution by Representative
MrLemore of Texas and nine were
against it. There are 21 members of the
Outside of the democratic ranks the
principal development was President
Wilson's invitation to Republican Leader
Mann to confer with him at the White
Mr. Mann went to the White House at
5 o'clock this afternoon and after a con-
ference with the president was silent.
After Representative Mann left the
president conferred for an hour with Sec-
retary Lansing over the events In the
senate and their effect on the situation.
The storm broke In the senate promptly
at noon today when Senator Stone arose
to make a statement of his position In
the warning controversy. When the sen-
ator had frankly stated that he differed
with the president but that he hoped a
way could be found to bring the execu-
tive and congress In closer accord he
urged that prompt action was necessary
to rid the president of the embarrassment
he had complained of because of con-
"Distressing as It is to me to be obliged
to disagree with the president as well as
many of my colleagues" said Senator
Stone "my opinions have been matured
after great deliberation and my sense of
duty Is imperative. I can not but believe
that a belligerent merchantmen heavily
armed no matter whether It be called
defensive or offensive armament is In all
essential respects the equivalent of a duly
commissioned war vessel."
Senator Lodge rose on the republican
side to defend the president's position. He
agreed with Senator Stone In his conclu-
sion that the Issue was by far the most
Important one before congress and that
It should be squarely met and urged that
the president had a right to ask congress
for a vote on the precis question of
warning embodied In the Gore resolution.
In emphatic language he upheld the de
termination of the president that nothing
should be done to abridge the rights of
Americans to freedom of tne seas a right

QUESTION OF AMERICA
FIRST SAID WILLIAMS.
As the republican leader took his seat '
Senator Williams almost toe? Ill to stand
began to .peak. He said there came a
time for the parting of the ways among
all peoples all administrations and all
parties and that such a time had com
In the senate now.
"This proposal has not faced us be-
cause of any action of the president of
the United States" h declared "but
which he lias been compelled to confront
by constant nagging constant quizzing
and constant expresslexi of opinion In
favor of the negotiations of a foreign
power as against our own.
"The time has come when for me tha
question states Itself this way: 'Khali I
exclaim "America first" or shall I sing
"Deutschland Uber Alles. -
For the politics In this question. Senator
Williams asserted he bad the highest con-
tempt. "To be an Anglomanlac" he said "la
