Washington, March 19. Continuing his speech in the senate last Tuesday. Senator LaFollette of Wisconsin today ! devoted considerable time to discuss ing the proposition for the phsycal valuation of railroads. The blind sen ator from Oklahoma. Mr. Gere, at tempted to draw IjcFolIette into a crit ic ism of the actions of the president and Secretary ("ortelyou in connection , with the recent financial disturbance. but the Wisconsin senator expressed the opinion that the president acted in" the way which he believed at the time to be in the best interests of the country. The senate a part of the. day, had under consideration the om nibus claims bill which then was re ferred back to the committee for con sideration.

Senator LaFollette directed himself to the charge made in his remarks on Tues day that the recent financial stringen cy was started by the great bankers and financiers, declaring that since he spoke on Tuesday he had secured ad ditional Information proving that the charges were; correct. Senator Gere of Oklahoma. Inter rupted to ask, whether In vievv of the charges made by the senator from Wisconsin the president was Justified in congratulating the men who brought on the panic-. "Does the senator think," he said, "that the president and Secre tary Cortelyou were not the star act ors In the performance, or at least, that they congratulated the chief actors when it was over?" He quoted from a letter sent by President Roost velt to Secretary ("ortelyou. LaFollette deprecated the idea of bringing partisan politics in the dis cussion. He said he did not purpose to be drawn into a criticism of the president, who had done the best he could to relieve the situation and had not thought it wise at a critical mo ment to attempt the punishment of the incendiaries, who started the confla gration while the president was In the south, until it was put out. "Whatever agencies were back of the panic," said LaFollette, "whatever purposes were behind it, the president and the secretary of the treasury were confronted with the condition that the lauic was on" declared the senator in tragic tones that rang through the chamber. "The panic was on. 1 do not know how the president regarded It. He was sitting there in the White House. He is a man who faced all manner of dangers without flinching, but he was confronted with the sit uation that the panic was on. He saw that legitimate business was put in peril, and his responsibility came to him as the head of the government and to the secretary as the head of the treasury department. Where else could money have been sent to stop the panic, no matter what influence might have been behind this bill?" Mr. Gere said he Justified the presi dent "In standing and delivering to these pirates and depositing with them the people's money when the dagger was at his throat. But I cannot" he said, "excuse him for congratulating these pirates as public spirited bene factors. I excused the president for helping the Incendiaries who kindled the fire, but I can hardly go s( far as to approve his proclamation of them as deliverers of the country." Gere stated that he heartily agreed with the senator from Wisconsin, that Rockefeller and Morgan brought on the ;anie which ripened to the point of failing, but he did not think they should be-hailed as deliverers after ward. Referring to the bill as originally re ported LaFollette declared with the j suggestion of a sneer that the railroad ! bonds had been "whisked" out of th-.-measure. "We are not through wit'o that proposition." he added. "It will appear again and again until finally it Is overwhelmingly beaten or unex ' pectedly worked in and grafted upon i the currency system of the country!" j He then discussed at some length hi.s resolution for the valuation of railroad property, which he said had been sent 'to the committee on interstate com j merce but was not acted upon. There I was quite a large attendance. The ! democratic senators were in their places there were comparatively few ! republicans. PERFECTION OF PLANS Washington. March 19.

Washington. March 19. Speaker Cannon and Vice President Fairbanks Ntoday announced their belief that the present congress will pass an employ ers' liability act which will meet and overcome the unconstitutionality of the present law as pointed out by the supreme courf of the l'nited Stat.-s in its recent decision. This statement was made- unreservedly by Mr. Can non and guardedly by the vice presi dent to a delegation led by Samuel ! mpers from the national and inter national trade and labor organizations and farmers' organizations assembled in national conference in the city. The delegation called on the speak er to lay before the house of represen tatives, through him, a memorial en titled "Labor's protest to congress." The scope of the memorial Is set forth in the following opening paragraph: "In the name c.f labor we now urge upon congress the necessity of Imme diate action for relief from the most grave and momentous situation which has ever confronted the working peo ple of the country. This crisis las been brought about .by the application of the supreme court of the l'nited States of the Sherman anti-trust law to workers, both organized and of in dividual capacity." The protest refers to the supreme court decision in the hatters' case as the "most recent perversion of the in tent of the law by the judiciary by which the Sherman anti-trust law has been made to apply to labor, although it is an accepted fact that congress did not intend the law to so apply and might even have specifically exempted labor but for the fear that the supreme court might construe such affirmative j 1 ii nv ij.it. ii ij ue uiicuiimiiuiioimi. xtesponuing 10 ine presentation oi the memorial by Mr. Ooiripcrs, Mr.' Cannon said in part: "I speak as a representative, and not for congress. It is proper for me to say. touching your reference to the employers' liability ! bill, or law, that I bolieve as I move about and come in contact with mem bers of the house that there has been no time since 'he delivery of the opin ion of the court in the case referred to, that there has not been a sentiment, I should say well nigh universal in the house, to enact such an employers' li ability bill, the original of which or iginated in the house and which has recently been construed bv the court in conformity with the opinion of the court, as will give a remedy to the employes for injuries, taking care, so far as congress or the house may be able to do so. to have it framed so that it will be sustained by the courts."
