SENATE NOW OVER
TARIFF FHJBUSTER
:
. /
McC umber, Denouncing Republican
Press Attacks,
Accuses Democrats.
CHANGES ARE DENIED
Senator Simmons Declares
Passage Will Lead to
Business Debacle.
FIGHT ON WOOD ALCOHOL
Tax of 10 Cents a Gallon
Agreed To?King Attacks
Lobbyists.
Washington, May 12.?Republican
and Democratic leaders In the Senate
got into another row to-day ovet
the tariff, the controversy centering
around the attacks of Republican
newspapers on tbe measure and or
the duty of ten cents a gallon proposed
on wood alcohol by the Finance
Committee.
There were charges from the majority
side that the reading of antitariff
editorials was the beginning ol
a filibuster. The Democrats indignantly
deny this, and make countei
charges that thf members of the committee
were refusing to give infor
niation about the rates on which th?
Senate could act Intelligently.
The editorials were presented by Sen
ator Simmons (X. C.). Democratic
leader, who closed a general assault
on the bill with the prediction that it
it were passed In Its present form it
would "lead the business of this coun
try into a debacle from which it wil
take us a quarter of a century to res
cue it, and the dire conseguences o:
which to the American people canno
be measured in words or figures."
Calls Editorials "Propaganda.'*
Senator McCumber (X. -D., Rep.)
in charge of the bill, countered witl
a charge that the editorials weri
a part of a propaganda to discredi
the bill and the assertion that the pre
diction of Senator Simmons as to th<
result of the passage of the bill wai
not "one-half as startling as woulc
be the dire results" if the Underwooc
tariff law remained in effect for an
other year.
Denying the charge that the Demo
orats were filibustering, and assertlnj
that there was a "combination" 01
the Republican side to put the bil
through "without oven considering th<
schedules." Senator Hitchcock (Neb.
Dcm.), said If there were no Re
publican Senators who would stand u]
and fight this bill, as did Senator
Dolliver. Beverldge and others whei
the Payne-Aldrich measure was up, th
Democrats would make the fight am
would continue to make it until the bil
was passed.
Senator Borah (Idaho, Rep.), re
marked that if the Democrats woul<
present reasonable rates In substltutioi
for the committee rates "you will ge
some votes on this side." He added
however, that those on the Republlcai
side would not "vote for free trade."
Declaring^ there was no informatloi
on which to base a tariff at this time
Senator Borah said he would vote un
hesitatingly to postpone consideration o
the bill, adding that he would auppor
an amendment to the emergency tarif
law to take care of the situation untl
Morld conditions had become more set
tied and there was Information ot
which to act.
For Free Wood Alcohol.
Senator Hitchcock read a tariff com
mlegion statement that the wood alco
hoi Industry In the United States wa:
one of the largest In the world, and In
sisted that the commodity should b<
on the free list, as In the Payne-Aldrlcl
and Underwood laws.
In presenting the metropolitan news
paper editorials Senator Simmons saU
he did so because he wanted the news
papers of the country and the people
of the country "to begin a study of thli
question." Denying he was conductlns
a filibuster, the Senator declared that
on the contrary, ho had advised Demo
rratlc Senators that they should maki
the Democratic position on the bil
clear to the country, and as soon a:
that had been done, If the Rcpubllcani
persisted, they should be permitted t?
pass the bill, the minority showini
their disapproval of It by their votes it
opposition to the various Items and th(
bill itself.
Senator King (Utah, Dem.), de
dared Senator MeCumber ought not t
stem the fountain of light coming fron
Ttepubllcan newspapers.
"Speaking of propaganda," he con
tinucd, "If the Senator from Nortl
Dakota will go out Into the corridor
he will find propagandists of the specla
Interests, lobbyists. In large number
They sit In the galleries of the Senat
chamber and look down upon us witl
approval or disapproval, according t
their sentiments. However, that 1
their right.
Demanilng Fonnd of Flesh.
"They are demanding their pound o
flesh, not their own flesh, but th
flesh that Is to be grarted In strip
from the bodies of the Amerlcai
people."
Ponhwlnff V*l? huaauU aw
pnlitan newspapers, Chairman McCum
her challenged them to point ou
specific rates In the bill which war
too high.
Turning to department stores, th
North Dakota Senator said he eoul<
present to the Senate "the awfu
spread" between what those stores paii
for and charged for goods, and assertei
they wet? making profits from 100 t
fino per cent, as great as "any of thos
excess profits you are talking about li
this Nil." If a added that he did no
want American manufacturers to mak
unreasonable profltH, asserting tha
they were not making such profits now
because if they were their mills woul
be open.
The 10 cents a gallon rate on woe
alcohol was agreed to after an amend
mmt by Senator King to reduce th
figure to I cent had been rejected
IT to 37.
Senator Nelson CMInn., Hep.1
wanted to know If the rate on woei
alcohol would operate to lessen th
tis" of that liquid In bootleg liquor.
After shprp fights the Senate ap
proved committee rates of 3 cents
pound on amyl and butyl alcohol an
10 cents a gallon on ethyl Alcohol to
non-beverage purposes.

Dr. Walter E. Traprock, whose recent
book, "Cruise of the Kawa.'' i o
I caused a sensation because of its revelstions
about the South Sea Islands, is d
in Washington lobbying/in the inter- f
est of the whalebone industry. He , o
wants the Senate to put whalebone on ' f
1 tho free list upon the theory that thi3 li
would be the solution to the entire *
napper question.
"It always has been well known that s
'the higher the whalebone the lower f
the corset', Dr. Traprock told the s
Senate Finance Committee. "I believe s
it is time for the Government to look p
into this whole affair and make cor- f
sets within the reach Of all. If we can t
induce American girls to resume the t
wearing of corsets \ e will have 110 more 0

aw instantly that other Polar cx- ,
