of G. 0. P. on Tariff
Will Not Debate.
Chicago, Nov. 6. Senators Aldrlch
of Rhode Island and Cummins of Iowa
-arrived here today, the former to speak
on currency reform and the latter on
the tariff from the Insurgent stand
point at separate banquets tonight.
Aldrlch will speak before the Commer
cial club, while Cummins will be the
guest of the Marquette club.
The report raat Cummins would chal
lenge the Rhode Island statesman to
debate the currency question was
promptly denied by the Iowan. "From
Chicago I go to Washington." said
Cummins, "and doubt if I shall meet
' Aldrlch, even In Iowa. I might add
that I am not familiar with Aldrich's
currency views and certainly have no
' Idea of challenging him to meet me in
debate. I would, of course, be will
ing to meet him fen this or any other
subject should I be called upon."
. Opens Western Campaign.
Senator Aldrich's utterances tonight
will Inaugurate his western campaign
of education on currency reform. He
is expected to outline the aims and
purposes of the monetary coaimisFton,
but not to forecast the probable action
of the commission.
This Is Aldrich's first visit west to
the west In 20 years. Incidentally the
day marks the C8th anniversary of his

Cummins of Iowa is expected tchdirect

has intimated that this speech will befVteam pipe In the boiler room robbed
his most intfrtant public utterance
of the year It is understood that
-he will outline the Insurgent, plan of
campaign at the coming sessional con
gress. During the summer Senator Cum
mins has been keening silent while
his political enemies have heaped all
manner of abuse upon him. He was
practically read out of the party by
Speak -V Cannon at Klgin recently, but
i allowed the attack to pass unnoticed,
efltcept for a statement that he would
make a reply in his Chicago speech.
His pent-up thoughts regarding the
speaker and other republican members,

lic tonight, are likely to be highly in
teresting and possibly sensational.
It is more than probable that Sena
