THE WASHINGTON. TIMES. SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 1915.
HIS PARTY'S TARIFF
Congressman Whitacre, of Ohio,
Supports Mann's Proposal
for Creation of Tariff Board.
Criticism of tlie Democratic tariff from
the Democratic cnmp has finally been
heard In the House, ntul Republican's
made no attempt to conceal their exul
tation over the spectacle. Congressman
John J. Whitacre, an Ohio Democrat,
who lnsurges now and then, took the
floor late yesterday and supported the
proposal of Minority Leader Mann for
the creation of a tariff board.
Mr, Whltacre's speech was one of gen
tle reproof for his Democratic brethren.
He said the Democrats had promised not
to Injure Industry, Hut were unable to
prove that their tariff bill had not
caused business depression. A tariff
board, he said, would settle the justice
of the- rates.
The Ohio member vanted an audience
berore the Ways and Means Committee
to discuss the Inequalities of the tariff,
but as the committee did not seem In
clined to hear him, Mr. Whitacre un
burdened himself in the House proper.
"The only Item In the tariff bill which
the Democrats can prove has not proved
Injurious to business Is that relating to
clay products," said Mr. Whitacre. "An
impartial Investigation has shown that
the East Liverpool potteries were not
Injured by the reduction, but I cannot
Ko Into other sections of my State and
demonstrate that Industry has not been
Injured. I could not prove the Demo
cratic case to Idlo working-men.
The o"'y reason I can defend the pot
tery schedule Is that the books of East
Liverpool and Kngland manufacturers
were thrown open and our potteries
concede they were not hurt."

He knows every volcano In North
America Intimately. Their periodic
earth-rocking travails hold no mystery
for him, because for thirty years Joseph

been paying close attention to tho
