Democratic Senators De
ARE TIRED OF "FLIRTATION
Congress Enlivened by Most Interest
Ing Political Episode of Present
Session Jeffersonians Ask La
Follette Band to Join Hands.
Washington, April 28. Democrats In
the senate turned upon the Insurgents
yesterday and left tlicm stranded and
very imicli embarrassed. It was the
most Interesting political episode that
has occurred In the senate tills session
and probably will have a sobering ef
fect upon Insurgency. Senator Itayner
of Maryland and Senator Bnlley of
Texas both hi effect served notice on
the Insurgents tbat they were tired of
the flirtation that the radicals have
been carrying on with the Democracy
and called for a declaration as to
whether they really had any honorable
Intentions of entering into the bonds
of political wedlock with the minority
party. Both invited them to cease
their coquettish ways and come over
and join the Democrats.
"1 am becoming weary." said Senator
Itayner, "of being fondled and ca
ressed only to be rejected and deserted
when the supreme moment arrives."
"No man enn claim the protection of
a Hag and at the same time lire upon
it," was one of the stinging state
incuts that the Texas senator directed
at the insurgents.
This attack upon the Insurgents from
an entirely unexpected quarter took
the tuck completely out of the insur
gent baud for a few minutes, and all
of them, from La Follette down, were
hopping mad. They held a hurried
conference, and finally Senator Dolll
ver of Iowa rejected the olTcr of the
Democrats to take them Into their
fold, retortlug with a considerable dis
play of feeling that the Democratic
purty wusu't worthy of such recruits;
The conservatives In the senate In
the meantime were happier than they
have been on any other day this ses
sion. Senator Aldrleh was chuckling
so hard that he had to hold his sides;
Senator Klkitis wore a grin that
stretched from car to ear; Senator
Itoot also was tickled, and even Undo
Shelby Ctillom treated himself to a
The charge made by Democrats
themselves that the Insurgents are
merely an annex of the minority party
drew blood, for It Is the very cry that
is being raised against the Insurgents
in their home districts. The radicals
were very peevish over the Incident
and were Inclined to tax the Demo
crats with pulling Republican chest
nuts out of the fire.
The Halley speech was one of his
characteristic partisan utterances for
which he has become more or less
n t"! In the senate and which In the

"The cost of living," herald, "calls
for careful Inquiry into the causes that
have operated to bring about conditions
that are new to us as a people. "We
have had great abundance of food at
prices that were lower than most other
countries enjoyed, particularly those
countries with which we compete in
commerce and manufacture.
"It costs more to get anything in our

"A change has come. Production
does not Increase as fast as population.
Prices go up; It costs more to pay car

but It costs htm twice as much to grow 1
things as it did ton years ago.
"The fact that population Increases
faster than food sets us thinking. We
cannot afford to buy food from foreign
countries. The balances of trade for!
goods bought and sold since the civil .

have been heavily against us during ;

wonderful sham battle at Vincennos.
It was a great day for Roosevelt, for
It saw him in the saddle again and

however, the affair almost equaled the
real thing, and as the battle ended

The attackers advanced in open for
mation under protection of the guns,
making frequent' rushes, the machine
guns attached to each unit firing at
the end of every rush. As the rear
guard of the retreating army fled be
fore the charge of the dragoons the
spectnele was a thrilling one.
Colonel Roosevelt warmly congratu

and go displayed by the troops and the
admirable fashion in which tho opera
