Washington, May 31. Responsibil

bated In the house today during the
consideration of the military acad

(democrat, MIssoutI) asserted the
reciprocity bill, repeal of which was
placed on the house metal tariff revi

of Taft and a "former president."
Prince (republican, Illinois) retorted
that the democratic speaker of the
house was the bedfellow of Taft on
the reciprocity question.
Prince insisted the people would
hold the democrats responsible.

Taft "fathered the measure upon
the advice of an ex-president."

at republican national convention
Colonel New today denied a pub
lic statement that Senator Dixon ask
ed for 200 tickets to the convention
for the personal use of Colonel
Roosevelt. "The telegram I received
from Dixon," New said, "was for use
of the Roosevelt national committee.
I don't want to be put in the position
of having been discourteous to Roose
velt or any other distinguished citi
zen. PKECEDEJT FOLLOWED.
"In denying Dixon's request I fol
lowed a precedent established by my
predecessors in the national commit
tee and carrying out a rule that no
tickets should be allowed managers
of presidential candidates. If Roose
velt were to make application for a
reasonable number of tickets for his
own use, or for use of his family or
personal friends who would get them."
New said a request from McKinley,
Taft's manager, for a number of
tickets had been refused.
APPEALS TO COMMITTEE.
Dixon may take the demand for 250
tickets before the national committee
when that body meets June 6. It be
came known that members of the na
tional committee received long tele
grams from Dixon protesting against
the action of New in refusing the de
sired tickets. New received tele
grams from a number of committee
men pledging him support in his con
troversy. DIXON' (OHIMKS ATTACK.
