V s - ; By Latest Mail " ' '
WASHINGTON'. Democrats of the
Senate who stand pledged to vote for
the : Underwood-Simmons tarllf bill
listened today to one of their number
who has repudiated the Administration
measure, because - of the free sugar
plank. , Senator ' .Thornton of Louisi
ana vehemently pictured the ruin, that
free sugar would bring to his state,
aenoiirced the policy of free sugar as
undemocratic, and " characterized . his
party's - action, as a "pity" r. and a
"shame", v .'. - "
. "I am not false to the principle of
the Democratic party," said the Louis
iana Senator, "In refusing to follow It
along- the strange and devious path
way it is now pursuing with regard to
the tariff on sugar. I am true to
those principles, and it Is the Demo
cratic party Itseit that is seeking to

-This first attack from within :;the
party ranks was followed by another
from the Republican side when Sena
tor Grcnna of North Dakota assailed
the measure from he'. standpoint of
the farmers. y ; . ' -;
Nearly the entire time for discus
sion of the bill was taken with these
addresses, and little progress t wai
made' in consideration of the scnedr
ules. The double attack did not sway
the Democrats from their determina
tion not to take up time in general
Sebate. The Democratic leaders still
ssert that they will content then
selves with brief opposition to amend
ments as they are offered from day to
day. . v- i

-PARIS The village of Alzonne,
near Carcassonne, in Southern France,
is astir at reports of a mircle which
is being investigated by the church au
thorities of the district. The miracle
Is acc3pted by the populace- on; the
strength of assertions of little girls,
some of whonr contend that the spirit
of Jfeaffne . D'Arc appeared to them,
others claiming that they saw the Vir
gin. Thousands of fervent believers
in the miraculous power of the waters
of Lourdes have left ' that place r and
swarmed into Alzonne. The field
where the' girls say they saw. the vis
Ions Is thronged with people, and wine
shops and garages are springing up on
