Special to Manchester Democrat,
Washington, D. C., July 1.
Mr. Prouty ol Iowa got Sewn Into
the huiuan essence ol things in his
remarks concerning the election o£
senators by the people, and he stat
ed the question of difference be
tween republicans and democrats «is
raised entirely on the point at is
sue as to whether the federal gov
ernment should have power to pre
serve its own existence and power.
Turning to the democratic side he
remarked- "You gentlemen from
the south seeim to ibe extremely
nervous for some reason. Why i& it?
Do you contemplate doing something
•that is wrong? I want to say to
you that I am northern iborn and
northern bred, and I know that
these people contemplate no wrong
toward' you or your people. So long
as you attempt to. elect a man to
the United States senate from the
'south fairly you will not be in-terfer
ed with by the north. I want to
say with equal cantor, if you have
in your mind the contemplation of
the election of United states senar
tors by methods that are unfair and
unpatriotic, the north wishes to re
serve in its constitution sutficien'
power to" interfere and secure' for
your people fair elections, iff you
are either unable or unwilling tc
secure them for yourselves."
The week's biggest show has
been the Lorimor. investig-nlion,
and Mr. Edward Hines of Chicago-,
the lumberman, has 'been on th"
stand and his. testimony ,has been
rather startling. According to his
tale he was1, commissioned by the
"administration" to carry the mes
sage-to Springfield that the Presi

the election of Senator Lorlmer. Mi(
Hines: was closely questioned wh'Ie
on the stand by Senators Kenyon of
Iowa, Jonesi of Washington, Gamble
of South Dakota, and1 other member?,
of the investigating committee, ant?
emphatically declared that he had
not been party to any corruption i:
the elections- of Mr. Lorimer. There
has been such wide discrepancy in
the testimony of Mr. Hines ant!
other witnesses -that Senator Ken
yon suggested at the hearing or
Thursday that there -should be pros
ecutions for perjury.
Representative Pepper, democrat'c
congressman from Iowa, is said tc
have "started something" when
began a few weeks ago to- send out
inquiries to his ,democratic friends
in the Hawkeye -state asking thei:
opinions as to a probable nomine
for president in 1912. The result lias
been exceedingly gratifying to tlif
friends of Speaker Champ Clark, as
most of the expressions that hayj
been: received have favored the can
did'acy of .the gen'.lman from Mis
sour. And. .if there ever was a man
who was dying to be president—and
who perhaps! "will die of .disappoint
ment, if he doe® not attain his am
bition—it i^s Champ Clark. In thi
poll made by Mr. Pepper, it devel
ops that nobody tout, Clark and Wood
row Wilson has a "look-in" so
a.3 Iowa is concerned.

The question of d'rect flection of
senators seems to be in ra he.r a.
critical state. The poMt'on of the
.republicans in both'houses ha® .bren
that the federal government should
retain control of the elections of
senators by direct vote '.lie same a~
ia done in th:» case rf mimbeis of

democrats, however, who int r

on account of the race quest!ion,

Senator Cuiiromins insists that the
Canadian reciprocity measure shall
•be amended, arid he held the atten
tion of the senate in( discussing thif
which he pointed out
t" the different ways in which he
would strengthen the reciprocal ar
rangement between" the two countries.
During the debate, some of Mr. Cum
mins-' oponents, however, tried to
-make it appear that his position
lias- been inconsistent, inasmuch, as
for years he has-been known, as a
great advocate of tar'ff reform and
exponent of the principles of .reci
procity. Mr. Cummins has met ev
ery challenge of this nature, and
has demonstrated/ that he is af?
-firm for the reforms which .he has
long advocated as ever, but he in
sists thnlj there is- no reason why
the reciprocity measure cannot be
annuled and strength! ned at this
coming from the legislatures never
hanging' high and dry, while scandals
were more plentiful ithan .now.
It has been remaarked that '\ha
ups an ddowns" of reciprocity have
been manifold, and that finally the
opposition has faillen flat. This mea
sure has been treated! fr every
side, and all its weak spots have
been sought out. In is consid ition
the House the agricultural nd lum
ber interests fought it without avail,
It has been made very clear O

ly to approve amy tariff revision
plans at this time, and he is bring
ing all the power of the adminis
tion to bear toward defeating any
attempt, to amend' the Canadian re-eij
procity bill. He has also given ft
out that he believes it to be iH-ad
vsed to, attempt at this time any in
lependent revision cf the tariff
schedules. The suggestion! that the
republican progressives and the dem-
ocrats. may frame a n"W tariff -bill
is met with the condition that su.^h
a measure will doubtless1 dr-w
a veto from President Taft.
Congress does noit always listen
attentively to what", the president

Evidenced in the acts of the senate
committee on territories in f3r

The president has emphatically de
clared time and again his opposition
to the recall of judges as- embodied
in the Arizona Constitution, and! has
left very little dotftt in the minds of
most people that he will veto such a
proposition. In the face of this
plain talk by the executive, the
House has pasiscd a bill known to
be objectionable to- the president and

The old saying that "polV.'cs make
