Washington, Jan. 23. Repre
sentative Whitacre of Ohio, Demo
crat, startled his party colleagues
in the House today by making a
speech in which he denounced the
Democratic taiifT, declaring that it
was incumbent upon the authors
of the measure to prove that it had
not injured business.
Mr. Whitacre indorsed the bill
offered by Representative Mann,
providing for the creation o f a
tariff board to make a scientific
inquhy into the subject. The Ohio
member complained that lie had
sought opportunity to appear be
fore the Ways and Means Commit
tee "to protest against the inequali
ties of the tariff," but that his re
quest for such a hearing had been
"The only item in the .tariff bill
which the Democrats can claim
has not proved injurious to busi
ness is that relating to clay pro
ducts," said Mr. Whitacre. "An
impartial investigation has shown
that the East Liverpool potteries
in Ohio were not injured by the
reduction, but I cannot go into
other sections of my State and de
monstrate that other industries
have not been injured. I could
not prove the Democratic case to

the potteries schedule is that the
books of the East Liverpool nianu-
Superintendent Kinney, of the
Department of Public Instruction,
has sent copies of the following
letter to several people on Kauai:
Hon. K. Lota, who represents
your island in the House of Rep
resentatives, has called on me to
advise me that he wishes to intro
duce a measure in the coming,, Ses
sion oi tne Legislature for the pur-
pose o f providing loV.ging and
boarding facilities for students in
the Kauai high school. I have
promised Mr. Lota to assist him in
securing any information which
may be of value to him in hand
ling the matter, mainly in respect
to the probable number of pupils
who would avail themselves of
such facilities in case they should
be provided. Any information
which you can give me on this
subject will therefore be greatly
appreciated by Mr. Lota as well
as by myself. If you care to write
me fully what are your views in
regard to this matter, I shall be
further indebted to you."
facturers were thrown open and
our potters conceded that t h e y
were not hurt.
"However, other ind ustii, ft in
my State have been injured. If
we could pass a bill creating a
tariff board, as Mr. Maun has
proposed, we could make an iuiA
partial investigation of evn-v ii,.n,
