Ii fOLLETTE TALKS

Alone and Unsustaloed He lakes
a Remarkable Filibuster Against
the Currency Measure.
?ILL HAVE TALKED K120 HOURS
Declared Early This Morning That
He Would Continue Until Eight or
Nine O'Clock ? Senator Stone
Attempted to Relieve Him But
Could Not?Jeff Davis Coming.
(By Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, 1?. C. May L'9.?It
has lK'i-ii a long lime since the S> n
ate has been tied ?l> '?y u filibuster
with such slender .-support >us was in
evidence today when Senator l.a Fol
Ictlc undertook to defeat the <r?mf?
rence report on the Aldrlch-Vreelaiid
currency bill by talking it to death.
The report being brought up shortly
niter one o'clock. Mr. Li Futlettc
took tin- floor. He insist'd that a
quorum should lie maintained at all
times and up to six o'clock he had
demanded twenty roll calls.
He thus was able to obtain more
er less r laxatien and sit the same
time keep the supporterb of the bill
in their seats.
The heat was excessive and many
were vi ry restless under the res
traiut.
It seen became evident that the Re?
publicans would have difficulty in
maintaining the pr.-sciiec of a ma?
jority and it is just as apparent
that proceedings will be suspended
without the necessary M senators
pre se tit.
Mr. La Kollette complained of his
reci nt Illness and during much of
the day leaned strongly upon the arm
of his chair half sifting ax he talked.
He engaged y\r. Ahlrieh in a collo?
quy concerning the provisions of the
currency bill and later declaring
that the chairman of the finance com?
mittee had not been "frank" In hi.*
r"pli<-s, he was called to order and
only after a vote of thojfjfinst had
restored him to his right to the floor
did he ccatinue his remarks.
All senators except Mr. Foraker
voted to permit hlni to continue.
Shortly before 4 o'clock -Mr. L
Pollelte inquired whether a proposi?
tion W!>uh| be agreed to strike out
railroad bonds and shocks from the
list of securities contemplated In the
conference agreement but Mr. AMrich
promptly declined the offer, saying
the adoption of the report Was the
oniv qn< stion before the Senate and
adding that so far as he was concern?
ed h,? had neither power nor dispoei
lien to make the concession 'Suggest?
ed.
Mr. Aidrirh declared that the re
port wou|,| remain before the Senate
until March L irme of necessary.
Mr la Pnllette threatened during
the day to keep the Senate in session
lhree weeks but the support he will
get in order to cntinuo his tactic*
whin the end of his physical endur
ance will be reached is yet to be
seen. \
It was understood ' that Senator
Stone, who was opposed to the hilt
would rive active support to the fiiT
ibnster and Senstor Oore manifested
some syBspalbj at iimes hut as a hodr
