M’KELLAR SCORES NEW TARIFF BILL Tennessee Senator Renews Democratic Attack on Senate Measure. — 1 By the Associated Press. Resuming the minority opposition, Senator McKellar, Democrat. Tennessee, said in the Senate today that if the Republican party can pass the pending tariff bill, “they cannot only get by with stealing from the Government, but they can get by with murder.” President Hoover, the speaker said, did not recommend a general revision of the tariff "such as this bill proposes.” / reading of this tariff bill shows how -r the Republican partv has mis interpreted the meaning of President Hoover’s message.

The Avenue at Ninth , ■ STORE trying to enact a general tariff bill in the Interest of industry rather than in the Interest of the farmer.” About the only thing the fanner would get out of the bill, he continued, would be the privilege of buying dia monds free of duty. Benator McKellar enumerated a long list of articles with increased rates on which he said the farmer would have to 'pay more Tor his purchases. One of these was aluminumware. Declaring “Uncle Andy Mellon” had a “great aluminum trust,” he said it was true that this “trust” was making all the money in the world, and yet the farmer would be charged 9 cents a pound on the aluminum he uses He cited knives, leather, tobacco, razors, surgical instruments, shotguns and rifles as being “taxed higher than a cat’s back” in the bill, and that watches, a necessity of the farmer, would be increased in price enormously. Names Sewing Machines. He listed the proposed higher rat* on sewing machines as a “tax against the farmer’s wife,” and poked fun at the Republicans for offsetting this by plac ing “skeletons on the free list.” He facetiously listed many articles on the free list as being "useful” to the farmer, among them Brazilian pebbles, fish sounds, gold and silver, bones, dia monds, horsehair, joss sticks, radium, shrimps, truffles and turtles. “Now. when all of these articles come In absolutely free under this Republican tariff measure.” he said, “how ran any body farmer least of all— because these things are so absolutely necessary to the farmer.” HEFLIN DEMANDS RASKOB GET OUT Says Chairman’s “Machine” Being Used to Sponsor Smith’s Candidacy. By the Associated Press. Resignation of what he described as the “Raskcb machine” was demanded in a statement today by Senator Heflin, Democrat. Alabama, who said the Dem ocratic party was being used as a pri vate agency to promote the presidential candidacy of Alfred E< Smith. !r. 1932. This action, he added, was “usurpation.” The Democratic meeting arranged by the Massachusetts Democratic State committee last Saturday night, he as serted, actually was “a Smith rally,” which should convince Democrats that the former New York Governor is a candidate. “When the meeting was in full swing," the Senator continued, “Former Representative and ex-Mayor James M. Curley of Boston stirred his Roman ad mirers to a high pttrh of enthusiasm when he declared amid great applause. that 'Alfred E. Smith would be triumph antly elected President In 1932.’ ” He added that Jouett Shouse, whom he referred to as the Raskob-Tammany representative in Washington, was pres ent. Shouse is chairman of the executive committee of the Democratic national committee, with headquarters in Wash ington. “Verily, the time has come,” Heflin said, “for the Raskob regime to retire and give the Democratic party a chance to live and, be free again as it was be fore it was. tied to this Tammany body of political death.” Amateur Aviator Killed.
