Tillman As a Conservative.
Washigton Correspondence Pitts
It is hard for Senator Tillman, now
the de facto leader of the rate regu
lation fight, to keep up an appearance
of conservatism. He is aging under
the effort. He sat quietly through
out all the debate Wednesday, but he
could not let the opportunity slip to
say just a few words as a parting
shot to the conservatives. He rose up
to say that if the senate- wa/to be
hedged about so by court decrees that
it eiid not give the people the relief
they demanded from the oppressions
of the railroads then it was about
time for the senate to set about re
forming the supreme court.
That sentiment, strange as it sound
ed in the senate, was applauded by
the people in the galleries' It is al
was a safe wager that the occupants
of the galleries of both Houses of
Congress are. a majority of them, rad
icals. at heart if not by profession.
Such sentiments as that expressed by
Tilman draw applause from them in
s)ite of the rule forbidding manifes
tations of any kind and the reiterated
threat made 'in the senate by the pre
siding officer to have the gallerig
leared if there should be a repetition
of the offence.
The galleries have never been clear
ed by order of the presiding officer.
When the occupants -get too demon
trative .some senator shuts off fur-I
thei demonstrations by moving to go
into secret session for the consider
ation of executive business. That
clears the galleries without the pain
fl necessity of having the door
keepers tell the plel that they
must go~( I utt beLcause they have vio la
te a rule of thle senate.
