Children Cry v
From our Regular Correspondent.
Washington, D. C, May 10, 1909.
The Republican stand patters
struck a tartar when they
undertook to squelch Senitor Dol
livc of Iowa. Mr. Ddliver per
sisted in demanding how an in
crease of the tariff rates was revi
sion downward. He wanted to
kuow why the consumer was to be
taxed inordinately on every article
made of wool or cotton, why Sena
tor Aldrich has permitted certain
New England manufacturers to
make the wool and cotton sched
ules and a dozen other things which
is was impossible for the Republi
cans to answer frankly and which
it greatly embarrassed them to
have brought to public attention.
Throughout a speech lasting the
greater part of two days, Mr. Dol
liver kept his temper under the
most trying circumstances, answer
ed inutndi with witticism and
turned aside the angry shafts of
Mr. Aldrich with jests which won
for him the sympathy of the Sen
ate and even the applause of the
galleries, although applause is for
bidden in the Sanate and each lime
it occurs the presiding officer grave
ly warns the galleries that if it oc
curs again he will he obliged to
clear them. Senator Aldrich, al
though hardly d ning to eharge it
outright, plainly intimated that
Mr. Dolliver's opposition totheex
oibitant schedules which are the
Rhode Island Senator's particular
pets emanated from the fact that
the Iowau was angry because he
had not received a place on the Fi- j
nance Committee and that there
was no more worthy reasou for his
opposition. That any man should
have the interests of the ultimate
consumers at heart apparently nev
er enters into the calculations of
the Rhode Island statesman. Prob
ably the fact that it is generally
known that Mr. Dolliver has the
sympathies of the President with
him 111 his fight on the exorbitant
schedules adds nothing to the com
fort of the Rhode Island Senator.
The indications all point now to a
continuation of the session of Con
gress until June 15 and possibly
The decision of the Supreme
Court in the so called commodities
clause of the Railway Rate Bill
constitutes another blow at the con
cohsumer aud a victory for the rail
roads, although the Court upholds
the constitutionality, of the law.
This clause was enacted in order to
prevent the outrageous discrimina
tion which the railroads commonly
practi.-ed against those who sought
to compete with them in any side
line in which they are engaged, es
pecially iu the production of coal.
Many railroads own extensive coal
mines. Where this was. the case
any private owner of a mine was
almost certain to receive an offer of
a very moderate price for his mine.
If he refu-ed to sell he found him
self hampered on every side. The
railroad simply could not supply
him with cars. His shipments got
side tracked and his coal arrived so
late that he broke his contracts and
in some instances he was complete
ly undersold by the railroad which
could haul its own coal free. Fi
nally, finding himself on the verge
of ruin, the private mine owner
would give up the fight and sell his
mine to the railroad at its own
A provision in the commodities
clause provided that a railroad not
only must not haul its own coal,
but it must not haul that of any
company in which it was "directly
or indirectly interested". The Su
preme Court decides that this does
not prevent a company from hav
ing stock in a corporation which
operates a mine and hauling tbe
coal of that corporation. In other
words, under the decision, the rail
road need only organize a subsidi
ary to the mine and then own the
company. The Attorney General
points out that this is a consistent
decision as the Courts have always
held that owning stock in a com pa
ny does not constitute a legal in
terest therein. He says, however,
that if the law had provided that
holding stock must be regarded as
having an interest therein within
the meaning of the law. the law
would have been effective. Presi

amend the law. The Question nat
urallv-arises. therefore. Why did
not the men who framed the law
and who were lawyers of known
ability so word the law as to ac
complish its purpose in the first
nlace? Thcv must have known of
the former rulings of the Court.
Of citirse no one can answer this
question but the fact that the law
as adopted was written by Senator
Ulkins who is not on y a lawyer ot
long experience but who owns t le
greater part of a railroad which, in
turn, own large mines in West
Virginia may point the way toward
the solution of this intricate prob
lem. It will be interesting to ob
serve the attitude of Senator El
kins toward the amendment which
President Taft will urge.

Congressman Mc Henry.
The constituents of Representa
tive McIIenry. of this Congressional
District, irrespective of party con
nection, have reason to be proud
of the record he has made in look
ing after and supporting their in
terests, which coincide with the
general interests of the country.
Convinced that free raw materials
are essential to successful manufac
tures, in his first session he pre
sented a bill, and ably backed it
with his voice on the floor of the
House, the purport of which was
to abolish the tariff tax on lumber,
bark, wood pulp, and paper, which
would provide uutariff raw mate
rial for a number of very import
ant industries. But this salutary
measure was smothered iu commit
tee under orders from the Congres
sional bosses. At the present ses
sion, pursuing the same wise econ
omic policy, Representative
McIIenry has exerted both his
voice and personal influence for the
removal of the duty ou hides, a
measure of general interest, as it
would be productive of cheaper
shoes for the millions of American
people. So greatly is this last ef
fort of Representative McIIenry
appreciated by an interest that
would be favorably affected by it,
that he has received a special lefter
from the Pennsylvania Free Hide
League, thanking him for "his
fight in behalf of the people of this
great country." Sunbvry Demo

Grangers to Meet at State College.
Annual Convention Will Convene on Decem
ber 21.
It is announced that the next
meeting of the Pennsylvania State
grange will be held ac State College
December 21 to 24. The place was
selected after the executive com
mittee aud William T. Creasy,
State master, had made a trip to
State College and had been satisfied
that tbe facilities were adequate to
accommodate the delegates-
President Iviwm E. Sparks, of
Pennsylvania State College, sent a
special invitation to the grangers to
conduct their conventiou at the co!
lege. He pointed out that the an
nual "Farmers' Week" for the ed
ucation of the agriculturists of the
State would be scheduled during
the Christmas vacation period, and
the husbandmen would have an op
portunity of taking in both events.
The college buildings will be
thrown open for the use of the vis
itors, and the rooms in the new
Duilding of the School of Agricul
ture will be placed at their disposal
for sessions. State College feels
able to care for the hundreds of
grangers, since it fouud room for
the 700 farmers that attended the
"Farmers' Week" last year.
Already arrangements are being
discussed by tht Center county
grange, the organization that was
in great measure responsible for the
selection of State College as the
meeting place. All the railroads
running into Bellefont'e will send
their trains on to State College.
