President Wished.
AJdrich and Beveridge Have War
of Words In the Senate Dur
ing Bcbate on Cotton
Washington, June S. The house of
representatives passed the Porto Itienn
bill without amendment, as requested
by President Taft. The bill provides
that whenever the legislature shall
fall to make the necessary appropria
tions for the ensuing fiscal year those
for the current year shall be consid
ered as in force and effect.
It also provides that hereafter all re
ports of an otliclal character shall be
made direct to an executive depart
ment of the government of the United
States to be designated by the presi
dent, and such department is author
ized to take jurisdiction of all matters
pertaining to the Island lwssesslon.
The senate chamber was again trans
formed into a mental arena, and Sena-
tor Aldrich. leading the conservatives. tllo ,aPt ,,nrasral,i, of the cotton sched
and Senator IScveridge. heading the . .... rtontpl
progressives, were the chief gladiators.
Both of these senators were frequent-
ly on their feet, and there were many
sharp conflicts between them.
Beginning the session with a vote on
the recommendation of his committee
for a duty of a cents a square yard
and 20 per cent ad valorem on the fal
ric known as window hollands. Sena
tor Aldrich was apparently somewhat
encouraged over the prospect of mak
ing decided headway with the cotton
Ills hopes, however, were doomed to
early disappointment, for Mr. ltever-
ldge took the floor and before he con-
eluded had opened such a gap that
the Rhode Island senator himself
could not resist the opportunity to
walk in.
Mr. P.everldge having said that he
had been Inclined to support the rec
ommendations of the finance commit-
tee. the admission led the chairman ot
the committee to say that he had not
shown such inclination by Jiis vote.
Coming back, the Indiana senator
asserted hN "rlirhf to follow bis con
science rather than the leadership of
any individual.
In the course of bis remarks Mr.
Aldrich. while contending that many
prohibitive tarifTs were justified, said
he never tiad favored a prohibitive
policy. He predicted that In time the
south would become the greatest man-
ufacturer of the liner grades of cotton ,
Boons, l.pplying lo tins assertion, fen- j
ator Bacon declared that If even such
should prove to he the case lie would
not favor an increase of the customs
duties. He believed that natural con
ditions In Georgia or the other south
ern states would prove the best pro
tection for their manufacturers.
The senate then took a vote, which
was on a proposition by Senator Dol
llver which had for its purpose the
striking out of the committee's pro
vision lixlng a duty of 1 cent a square
yard for the process of nierccrization.
The amendment was lost by the un
usually close vote of 32 to !5S.
On this vote eleven Republicans
voted with the Democrats for the
amendment. Senator Jones (Wash.),
who has almost uniformly voted to
uphold the committee on finance, vot
ing with Messrs. Beveridge. Bristow,
Brown, Burkett. Clapp, Cummins, Dol
llver. Gamble, La Follette and Nelson.
One Democrat, Mr. McEnery, voted
with the Republican majority.
When Senator Dolliver offered an
amendment removing rubber goods
from the cotton schedule, under which
all rub'jer goods having any cotton In
them, as lining, etc., are required to
pay a double duty of 50 per cent ad
valorem nnd l.r cents n pound, Sen
ator Aldrich announced that he would
accept It on the tart of the committee,
and it was accepted by the senate
without division. As the result of the
adoption of this amendment rubber
goods will receive no additional duty
on account of having some cotton as
a component part.
After this vote Senator Aldrich
again challenged the attitude of some
of the Republican senators who are
contending for lower duties. He
charged them with playing the part of
brigadier for the Democrats and,
speaking of Senator Beveridge, declar
ed that he had associated with the
Democrats so long that he was adopt
ing their Ideas. He characterized Mr.
Beveridge as the leader of the opposi
tion. Both Senators Beveridge and Cum
mins replied, the former asserting that
he was simply standing on the Re
publican platform, while the latter
stated that he hud been so often cbarg-
ed with being n Democrat that the
I charge did not worry lilm.
! Senator Smith (Mich.) found occa-
slon to attack the position of Sec re-
1 tary MacVcagh as the mouthpiece of
the administration on the tariff situa-
(ion. He intimated that he did not

The Dingley rates were restored on
hosiery, making a reduction of about
Lit ctfnts u dozen pairs from the rates
or me imuse bin.
Contending that the industry would
luffer if the duties on cotton knit
rloves were not Increased, Mr. Lodge
altered an amendment for the finance
committee nr.ikini: the duty T.0 cents
t dozen juiirs and 4." per cent ad vn-
roll call, and the amendment was car- -
ried by a vote or 41 to 4.
The committee amendments to the
paragrapn on couon garters anu lauric
for suspenders were withdrawn by
Mr. Aldrich, and cotton tapes, band
ings and bindings were Included In
the paragraph, which was then agreed
to. Mr. Dolllver and Mr. La Follette
opposed the committee amendment
taking off the duty of Xi per cent ad
valorem on cotton duck and placing
duck under the provisions for taxing
cotton cloth according to value and
count of threads.
The amendment was agreed to, and

Quite a number of distinguished
railroad oillcials visited Honesdale

by President L. F. Loree and Vice
President. C. S. Sims, of the Dela

ing them here was the new Superln-
.tation the D. & H. ofhcials left for
j Wilkes-Barre, where the Erie party
i left for Xew York. The object of
j their visit was announced as a tour
I of inspection; but trom another
source we learn that it was remark
ed that it would decrease railroad
expenses "if Honesdale was not on
the map." By that we presume there
is a movement to make arrange
ments so that Hawley or Carbondaie
will be made a terminal point
woum not be a surprise If the D.

ran through Honesdale to Hawley,
although there are those who claim
tmU the Erie is seriously consider-
lnB the tunnelling of the Moosic
mountain with a view of shortening
its route to the west, and that the
D. & H. are anxious to use the
Erie tracks to Binghamton for pas
senger service, using their Nincvah
branch for freight and coal, and in
consideration of the above privilege
will double-track their road from
Honesdale to Waymart, jslvlng .the
