vania, a Democratic member of
Ways and Mi. ins Coinmlttie, und rc
gardcJ da thu Administration spokes
man In thu House, spoke on the tariff
bill to-day.
Mr. Palmer tried to pacify those
Democrats, who are spending their Idle,
hours in the cloak loom denouncing
tho Cnderwood blil. He assured pro
tected manufacturers of his own Statu
that they were, good fellowii, patriots, to
tho core, mid fully competent with a
little more etllclency to fight tho world
( for trade on tho competitive basin as
established by tho new tariff,
Mr. Palmer had heard that tho now
Pennsylvania member agreed that nomc

of them would needlessly throw labor

"Let us work for the common roofi,"
said Mr. Palmer.
Tho Democrats applauded, wh!! the
Republicans and null Moo Jeered.
Representative Monro of Pennsylva

under Democratic tariff, nnd said It was
reasonable for every Republican to

Pennsylvania, R-publlcan. of the Ways
and Mean Committee, presented bis
tariff argument by sending a transcript
of his. speecli to the desk. It proved
to he a presentation of questions, which
Mr Moore requested the clerk to read.
Me said ho would anwer them.
"Were the Democrats commanded by
the people to write a tariff bill embody
ing the Ideas of President Wilson'.'"
asked the clerk. The House laughed.
"The Democrats think they were, nl-
though apparently a majority of the
i voters of the I'nited States are not In
sympathy with Mr. Fnderwood or Mr.
WINon. The protectionists of the coun-
try dl Ided their votes between Mr. Taft
and Mr. Roosevelt, so that Mr. Wilson
was elected, although he was the leader
of a mlnniliy party," answered Mr.
I "What is the objection to the tariff
j plans of Mr. Cnderwood arid President
- Wilson?" read the clerk.
"They are believed to be destructive
of the Industries that have been created
; in the i'nited Siiites under a protective
tariff sjstrni "
"Does Piesldent Wll.-nn apply the doc-
trine of competition with the foreigner
to books?"
"He ,oes not," said Mr. Moore. "The
' nrenaration of books Is brain labor.
while the work of the mill man Is band
labor. The President's publication, 'The
New Freedom.' which Insists that pro
tection from fori ign labor shall lie re-
i to stand by the Cnderwood bill
anil praised the cooperation of President
Wilson In Its preparation.
