IakmS Wlr Washington, June 28. The Cana dian reciprocity bill emerged from ltd first ordeal In tro senute tonight un scathed. The Hoot amendment, pro poslns a modification of the wood lulp and paper section of the agree ment, was defeated after seven hours of debute, by an overwhelming yote. 1 i:t friends of tho amendment were r.i wuhiflcd of Its defeat, that a roH tail wtisi not demji.tii J.

Senator Clap;) also announced his intention of offering a free paper amendment later and othir senators gave evidence of their purpose to force consideration of tariff revision on the widest plane. Attack on the Jtoot amendment was Interspersed with attack on the whole reciprocity measure In tho debate which resulted in the defeat of Sen ator Hoot's proposal to change tho house bill by requiring that all Cana dian province should remove their export restrictions on pulp wood and its products before the reclproclal fea tures of-the wood pulp and print pa per sections of the agreement went Into effect. "I am opposed to this so-called rec ipropcity legislation us a whole be cause I believe It Is wrong, harmful and unjustifiable," said Senator La Follettc. "It it must pass, I want to sec It made as nearly perfect as pos sible, I shall vote against the Root amendment because I believe It will defeat the very purpose of tho wood pulp and print paper paragraph of the agreement." ' Senator La Pollute declared there was no justification for any duty on print paper. Ho analyzed the figures of the tariff board to show that the brst mills in tho United States actual ly produce paper cheaper than the best mills in Canada. To continue a high tariff on paper, he said, was to put a premium on "Inefficiency nnd sloth." nnd to make the protective tariff "deaden all constructive forc es," for the development of efficient management. He criticised the newspapers for having urged the reciprocity measure as a means of getting relief from the oppressive charges of the print paper inantilactnrcrh. He said they had joined with tho "packers, the rail roads, the flour millers" and other? who would secure advantages through he passage of the reciprocity bill. He declared that In the testimony taken by the finance committee it Would be shown that the newspapers had suppressed the news of, the reci procity proceedings; but' on this Point Senator Stone, who nlso Is n member of the finance committee, 'aid the Wisconsin senator was mis taken. "That tH the blackest page in the newspaper history of the United States," said Senator T.a Follette. 1 regret that fact must become part of the history of this legislation, but it Is a stubborn fact. There Is no one who followed the hearings before the fin ance committee but knows that those ho fnvored the Canadian reciprocity agreement- were given great space: but wh,n the agricultural Interests enme before the committee the news Ailed but meager space in the great newspupers of the country." 'I wHnt to interrupt the seuutor," "tld Senator Stone, "not to defend tho newspaper, but because I think his MtUcment.ls not quite Justified by the flcts. it was churned that the As xoclated Rrcss. for example, had glv fn greut space to the pro-reciprocttv t- rature ,ond to the pro-reelprocltv contentions which the newspapers had greedily accepted uhd widely exploit ed. These facts as developed show, as i understand them, that fur more "pace wus given the anti-reciprocity arguments by the Assoclntcd Press arid by the newspapers of the eoun 'r.v than wUs given by either the one or the other In favor of reciprocity." Sinutor La Follette expressed the Her thut other members of the fin ance committee would aide with him the controversy. Senator Clupp of Minnesota oppos- the reciprocity Ml as a "deccp un. a delusion and a snare, and said "o Root amendment would but make worse. Senator Simmons, demorrnt. RECIPROCITY DEFEATED declared the bill was not a democratic measure. Senator Townsend of Michigan said the paper and pulp clause of the reci procity bill would undoubtedly be open to different interpretations if the Hoot amendment were not adopt ed and that the coo,-,s would finally have to pass on the matter. Senator Prlstow offered an amend ment to the bill making the tariff rate from all parts of the world on printing type and typo metal a fol lows: Type metal. 1 1-2 per cent per pound on the lead contained therein, new types, 15 per cent ad valorem. rCMtOSK WILLING TO VOTE OX KIVIMON OF TARIFF Washington, June 26. A persistent effort beginning tomorrow to ad vance the Canadian reciprocity bill in the senate by getting unanimous con sent to fix a definite time for a vote and on separate dates for a vote on tho house wool and free list bills will be made by Chairman Penrose of the sonatu nuance committee. With the Uoot amendment to the wood pulp and print paper schedule of the bill disposed of to his satisfac tion, Mr. Penrose after a canvass of tho senate, announced his Plan had met with more encouragement than he anticipated. The standpatters made little or no objection and the democrats none, hut the Insurgent republicans were not agreeable to the proposition. They want time to present the issues fully to the country and to the senate. ..The announcement that such a staunch standpatter as the chairman of the linance committee was willing to tnke the chances on a vote on tar iff measures created surprise, but it Is known that he Is willing to permit a tpst on the tariff, There is some apprehension among republican sena tors that the wool bill might pass if a vote should be reached, but they seem assured that in the event of such a contingency, the president would veto the measure under his promise to postpone all tariff legislation until a report can be received from the tar iff bourd. During tho day there was a general tightening up of the lines in favor of the reciprocity bill. The friends of the measure on tho democratic side con tinued the cunvuss of the situation and when the senate adjourned said no future amendment would receive more than five democratic votes. There also was current a report that their might be un effort to recommit the free list and wool bills to the fin ance committee, but the talk Was de sultory. A few senators advocated the course as best calculated to advance the tariff measures as riders on the reciprocity bill,' but most of them ex pressed gratification over tho report ing yf the bills and declared hnj under- no circumstances would they agree to send them back.

CONGRESSMEN DETAILS OF GHEAT SUGAR WAR DARED IN COMMITTEE WHEN SPRECKELS AND HAVEMEYER FOUGHT Son of Pacific Coast Magnate Proves Interesting; Prophet Smith of Mormon Church to Give Testimony Today, - IBr Morning Journal Bprelal lawd fVr Washington, June 20. Details of a great sugar war in tho early nin-Me between Claus Rpreckels In the w est, and Henry O. Havcmeyer in the oast, resulting In an alliance between th t.. were rolated today to the sugar X'-utt investigating committee of the In use by John 1). Spreckcla, son of tho Pa cific coast sugar magnate, and presi dent of tho Western' Sugar Ilcfintrg company of Sun Francisco. "When Claus Spreckels met Ifonrv O. Havemeycr in that old sugar wjf,'' naked Representative Madison, "It j was a contest of Greek against Greek, was it not?" "It certainly was a fight." Mr. Sprockets then described h vv, during the sugar war, his father in vaded the eastern territory and fleet ed a great cane sugar refinery in Phil adelphia. That brought about th culmination of the fight. "Who was the first of those two masters to throw up hl hands?" Mr. Madison asked. "I think It was Havcmeyer,' w!J Mr.. Spreckels. "When we entered The east in the fight, of course both My father and Mr. Havcmeyer realiird they wero lining money. ' They ?ame to their senses, and in short, came to gether Rud concluded that such a fight was of no use. It resulted In a consolidation of tho plants in the east and tho formation of the Westcn Sugar Uoflnlng company in CaliiWuU which took over the American Sujrar Refining company plant and ou" plant there. The American plant in the wlec was closed down. Each side took a half interest in the new company. In the east the entire Philadelphia Sprock et plant wag eventually sold o the American Sugar Keftnlng compart. That was, I think. In 18D2. 'After that there never wu. rny competition betwoen Spreckels nnd Havcmeyer, was there?" Mr, Madison Inquired,' "No, but there bus since been ple.i'y of other competition." Mr. Spreckels ulso described how Mr, Havcmeyer beeHnie, asuoclatod with them in 1897 In tho Spreckels beet sugar company In the erection of the largest beet sugar plant in the world. Ho further rolated tho history of an agreement In 1903 between ' the Western Sugar Refining company with a rival concern, the California Hawaiian Sugar company, whereby the plant of tho latter was leased by tho former un( nhiit down for thr,!e years. Eventually it was turned back to tho original owners and is ag:iiu a competitor. This transaction, Air. Spreckels said, ho was advised by counsel, was not a violation of the Sherman anti-trust law. . 1 Tho witness declared that' in 7111s opinion free trade n sugar would ruin the beet sugar business and he propliu sled, that with the tariff on sugar let alone, California alone could furnish enough sugar from beets to supply the entire United States and to warrant tho tariff protection of the Industry. In answer to questions by Repre sentative Hinds, Mr. . Spreckels suid tho American Sugar Refining com. pany did not have a monopoly of the sugar business of tho country. "If their motive in coming to Cali fornia was to monopolize the sugar business, they .did not succeed .spreckels declared. Mr. Expecting tho uppearance of Joseph Smith, president , of the Mormon church and head of the Ctah-Idaho Sugar company, a large number . of women were present nt today's hear ing. Mr. ' Smith, however, was not called as a witness and It was stuted that he probably would not com mence his testimony until tomorrow. President Smith arrived today and went tllrootly to Senator Hmoot's house to be hi guest. Asked whether he had any particu lar reason for not Wishing to come to Washington, Mr. Smith replied that his only desire had been to avoid a long and tiresome journey while suf fering from severe rheumatism, when he felt that he could add little or nothing toward the enlightenment of the committee. Mr. Smith and lUshop Nlbley, ac companied by Senator Smoot reach ed the committee room during tho afternoon session. From the rear of the room they listened attentively for a time to Mr. Spreckols' explana tion. Then tho committee excused the Mormon lender, subject to call and be retired With him wont most of the audience.
