Pictures "Deplorable" Condi

CURT REPLY BY LEWIS
Senators Engage in Partisan Debate
on War Revenue Bill to Dis
comfort of Colleagues.
Senator Boles Penrose and Senator
James Hamilton Lewis, of Illinois, in
dulged In a heated partisan debate yes
terday in the Senate on the war revenue
bllL Secretary Tumulty, accompanied
by Mrs. McAdoo and Miss Helen Wood'
row Bones, occupied the reserved gallery
set apart for the President throughout
the debate. Senator Penrose opened with
an attack on the Democratic admlnlstra
Uon, in which he asserted that the State
of Pennsylvania was suffering from In
dustrial paralysis as the result of Demo
cratic tarm legislation, and that the
streets were filled with Idle men and
women. The Senator made a brief
speech, but painted a very gloomy pic
ture of conditions in Pennsylvania.
Replying, Senator Lewis said:
"Deplorable must be that situation,
and believe me. I view it regrettably,
that a State which has been consecu
tively Republican since the civil war,
with very rare exceptions, could, with
officeholders In every branch of It,
dominated by the policies directed by
the able Senator himself, confess Its
situation In such blight and misery as
to be the object of pathos and sym
pathy of the generous and contempt of
'From Office to Penitentiary.
"I realize that we read In the public
press that this very excellent State, with
Its unlimited resources, every now and
then is presented to the country with
the administration In power, guided by
the able Senator from Pennsylvania, as
being of those who, when not In the
penitentiary for having robbed the State,
pillaged the statehouse or looted the
treasury, are In office until they get
from office back to the penitentiary."
This was only part of the arraignment!

was made public by the British Embassy
last night, as follows:
"The story of the alleged Anglo-Bel-Clan

"The Impossibility of Belgium having
