Money back if It fails. Washington, D. C, May. 6. Notable speeches provoking debate of intense interest characterized the session of the senate yesterday. Senator Dol liver of Iowa made an attack upon the methods under which protective tariff bills are formed and engaged In a con stant exchange of words with Senator Aldrlch who was a careful listener to the address of the Iowa senator. On the Democratic side senators remain ed mute, no member of the minority Interposing a word in the controversy over the tariff which occupied the Republican senators alone. At times this debate threatened to be acrimoni ous, but the Iowa senator was ever ready with humorous retort which called forth laughter at times when anxry words seemed unavoidable. "'If I speak the truth," said Mr. Dol- liver, "If I deal with things as they are, I suggest to the senator from Rhode Island that It will not be an adequate answer to reproach me with the errors of my youth or to dispar age me because in other years I fol lowed without Question in the foot steps of our party leaders. If, in times past, I took, without disturbing the public peace, every act of the party. It was because I loved It; be cause the young man of that day found It a good deal easier to ldallzs it than they sometimes find It now. I speak here because I still love the old Republican party, and would have Its leadership rise to the full statute of Its opportunity and Its responsibil ity." Referring to a recent exchange of words In the senate between him self and Senator Aldrlch, Mr. Dolllver said "If the senator from Rhode Island intended to humiliate me by the inti mation that my course In these me ters is dictated by political conditions at home, he unintentionally pays me a compliment which I sincerely appre ciate, because this nation has entered upon a new era of direct responsinu- ity on the part of presidents aad con gresses alike to that enlightened ubllc ODlakm .whkh ought to be the real government of ' the United States." "Is it possible that a man. because tie voted for the Allison tin-plate rate of 1889 and heard poor McKlnley dedi cate the first tin-plate mill In America, can be convicted In this chamber of treachery to the protective tariff sys tem, If he desires that schedule re examined, after seeing the feeble en trprlse of 1890 grown within a single decade to the full measure ol this mar ket place, organized Into great cor porations, over capitalized into a speculative trust, and at length, un loaded on the United States Steel company, with a rake off to the pro moters sufficient to buy the Rock It- land system? If a transaction like that has made no impression upon the mind of congress, I expose no secret In saying that it hat made a very pro found Impression on the thought and purposes of the American people. "I repeat, therefore, what I said the other day, that the duty of this con gress Is to reduce the margin of pro tection provided In the Dlngley rates wherever It can be done without sub stantial Injury to the productive en terprise! of this market place. It is our special duty to take up those schedules which represent the largest Investments of protected capital and, at least, take out of them the rates that are now everywhere known to be extravagent and unnecessary, which rise so far above the level of our real industrial needs as to bring the policy of protection Into ridicule without do ing anybody any sort of good."
