- Con greSS Did Yesterday The Senate Stands by the Gore $2.50 Wheat Amendment and Adjourns Ont of Respect for Senator Tillman, Last of the Origi nal Populists of 1890 The Strange Shifting in Politics, De Teloping Through Populism Into the Issue Between Cotton and Wheat The Report of the Secretary of War on Progress to Date Given for Use of the House The Sanders Substitute for the AsweD Resolution to Take Over Telegraph, Telephone, and Other Systems of Communication. The Senate, after a very brief ses aion yesterday, adjourned until Fri day aa a 'mark of respect tor the late Senator Benjamin Ryan Tillman of South Carolina. Before the death of Senator Till xoan was announceed. Senator Gore of Oklahoma presented to the Senate, In Its most radical present form, the Issue whose original development Bade Tillman DOFslble as a Senator from South Carolina. This Senator Gore did by securing the insistence of the Senate, against the House, on the issue of a mini mum price of $2.50 a bushel for wheat, with Mr. Lever of South Caro lina representing the House and the Administration in "deadlocked" re fusal to surrender. By W. V. BYARS. line This Issue involves what Is now of paramount Interest and Impor tance In the present and future of the country. Of Its almost wholly unrealized significance. Seneator Till man's record Is one of the few con necting links the nineteenth century left In public life until 1918. As only the briefest suggestion can be given here, It Is most essential to under stand that as Tillman made his be ginnings In South Carolina under the Harrison administration, he origi nated no issue. He adopted one which was being dellberateley forced In the "West, to "beat the Force bill" and make the re-election of Harrison Impossible. This was the "Populist movement," best known in Kansas, as it retired such capable and culU Tsted Republican leaders as John J. lagans, who once described himself correctly as representing personally t$ "Brahmin caste of New England." It could have had no better repre sentative in Kansas or the West than ZsgaHs. but he was whirled out of politics by the cyclonic movement of Jtfebelan plowmen who had never read a lives. of Hassillon In their In South Carolina, "Wade Hampton as a representative of the landed gentry whom their enemies called "Cotton Barons" was whirled out in the same way by such an Insurrec tion of plebeians from the bottom as disposed of Ingalls. Wade Hampton v. as a soldier, a gentlemen, of "un tarnished honor," Incorruptible. In capable of surrendering to the odds, and bringing to represent his class the high individual qualities which make the nineteenth century "South ern gentleman." now politically ex tinct, a precious memory. Instlctive ly he could not represent In South Carolina or elsewhere, the class of small farmers who had been plebeians before the Declaration of Independ ence, and had remained so under aris tocratic control until Tillman led them In revolt against It. "Cotton Baron" depends now, almost as much aa In 18S0, on keeping on his estate his reliable, slow moving, but steady-going "field hand" who in producing most for others and least for himself has no equal among agricultural workers. Their revolt finally failed by ex haustion, and the movement was finally "taken over" as an asset of the Solid South. When Senator Till man died he represented the great cotton "estates" of South Carolina as fully and perhaps as capably as they had beenrepresented when McDuffie was his predecessor in the use of the most startlingly emphatic phrases. The present Importance of this, as Senator Gore has forced It on atten tion, depends on a complete, a revo lutionary change in Western wheat- growing methods, which has not ap plied to cotton-growing methods. The age of machinery has taken full effect In Western grain States where the "Populism" originated which Till man made politically effective. But the greatest success possible for the "Wheat Baron" now depends on the most highly Improved and costly machinery, which throws men out of employment, while success for the representing In Oklahoma a con stituency of plebeian farmers. Senator Gore, on his $2.50 wheat amendment. represents the great capitalized "wheat barons" of the Northwest. These represent already the great economic and Industrial revolution which since 1000 has sent down heav ily the population of plebeian farmers In Iowa and Missouri, where "small farmers" have been crowded out and sent heaven knows where, as perhaps does also Mr. Cummins of Iowa, who Is ably representing its future of control by machine-worked "landed estates." So we have defined the Issue in which the great plebeian agrarian movement Tillman repre sented In 1S0O ends, as "cotton baron" and "wheat baron" co-ordl nated and unified as "bank barons" with "corn kings" and "cattle kings' In a remarkable system of their own devising, are arrayed against each other, when the question recurs of political control through "the estates of the realm" beginning with "land, ed estates." It Is a remarkable sit uation. It will not be forced to crisis now. Bet to prevent crisis. It ought to be understood now. as well as may be "to win the wax and for other purposes." As the House adjourned out of re spect for Senator Tillman, the House Committee on Interstate Commerce made no report on the Aswell reso lution for taking over the telegraph, telephone, cable, and wireless sys tems. As the committee went into executive session, issues developed against the Aswell resolution not an ticipated by Chairman Sims. After an all-day session, a substitute was adopted, proposed by Mr. Sanders of Louisiana, which Insures Govern ment control but eliminates the Idea of "Government ownership" as it was supposed to remain unexpressed be tween the lines of the "Aswell resolu tion." Under the substitute, the President. "In time of war," is au thorized to take full possession and control of all lines of communication as in the original Aswell resolution, but it is provided that this control shall not extend beyond the treaty of peace, as officially declared.

The new Democratic mem ber from Virginia, Just sworn in, hoped his party was right and "voted straight" at any rate. Mr. Dent, chairman of the House Committee on Military Affairs, se cured unanimous consent to insert In the Congressional Record correspond ence with Secretary of War Baker, In which the Secretary reviews the progress of preparation for the war from the beginning to July 1, when he stated that we had "practically a million men either In France or en route, with a total army of 2,010,000 men and about 160,400 officers. Up to June 8, 283 "combat" airplanes were reported delivered in a total of 4,496 aeroplanes of all kinds, with 37,250 machine guns delivered for use on airplanes. Two thousand "Liberty engines" are reported delivered, and every other line Is shown rn the same "state of forwardness " If there Is a recess for Informing the public, these data will silence the "For Heaven Sake Hurry" orators who have no other issue. Secretary Baker sent the Speaker yesterday a form of bill, which far down among provisions for winning the war, seems to purpose to take away from all governors the power to appoint "military or quasi-military" staffs without his consent. This may seem incredible, but the bill seems to purpose nothing less. As an incident of giving "State Sov ereignty" now at Its last gasp, the "stroke of mercy," It proposes to abolish all campaign contributing colonels. Hon. Thetus W. Sims, author of the Sims Waterpower bill under the fifty-year lease system. Introduced a resolution Intended to demonstrate that its passage is necessary to win the war. It was tabled.
