SATURDAY EVENING. -HINE 6. 1909.
Pkesent indicatloni are that there
will be more "mle and tane" Fourth ol
July celebration* in the cities of the
country tbit year than ever before. Il
various regulations and ordinances in
a tcore ofrjuiet-loviog places are enforced
the gory record of bat Independence
Day ought to be considerably reduced.
Cleveland hts been hoisting of itt cop?
per riveted anti-explosive law since it
was adopted, soon after last Fonrth, and
looks forward to a comparatively peace?
ful dty instead of a matt-acre. In Wash?
ington a citizens' committee ls busy on a
scheme to entertain the smail boy in a
sensible way and wean him from the
devil's inventions of years gone by. Al?
bany is going to allow a little racket and
maiming, fm -racker* of small calibre
bein? permitted from V> in the morning
until noon only. Chicago has served
notice of a rigid enforcement of the law
against high explosives and dangerous
toys. Boston hss not yet acted, and
"The Advertiser" rn urti lu I ly says thst
"the outlook for the day does not
promise much difference from the worst
features of recent years."
li the people ofthe country caa be
persuaded tbat there is no ditlerence
between 86 per cent, and 60 per cent.,
and that the MghM rate alfords no
greater protection than the lower, then
they will accept the Aldrich tarifl bill
aod the cotton schedule as meritorious
and as a revision of the present tarifl
law in accordance with Ihe campaign
promise* of President Taft aud ail other
republican leaders to reduce the burdens
of taxation imp sid upon the necessities
of life. If They can be brought to be?
lieve all this, then they can also bc
made to understand that for purposes
Of protection and revenue imported
goods should be valued far above their
actnal vbIiip, in order that the rates of
doty imposed may appear to be lower
than they really are. Upon no other
basis csu the cotton schedule he justified
or defended notwithstanding the labored
effort to defend il made by Senator Al?
drich last night
In New Haven, Coan , there was
published yesterday an appeal to yoong
women to go to the Phillippioo island"
to become the wives of Americans over
there. The appeal tet? forth :
Therre are lots ot young men over here
who are in .m-taiices and are
simply pining away for the love of n
good woman from the dear old United
Elates. 1 can acconnt for at least twen
ty young men bwidea mysp|f who would
be very grateful to you if yon could aid
us. 1 have 1,000 acres of hemp aod
cocoanut* and rubber uuder cultivation,
and have a good income.
There may be some young women in
C mnecticiit who may go to the Philip
pines in search of husbands btu it is sale
to say that if Yirginia girls are wniittd
those who want them must come for
them.
In looking about for new sources of
revenue, wherewith to keep pace with
tbe unnecessary expenditure*, the l'.ritisb
chancellor of tho ezcheqoer propoontO
levy a tax on motor c .rs, graded accord
ing to power and upon tho petrol used
in driving them, Ihe rnonpy so oolloeted
to be applied to the construction and
improvement ol roads, lt is estimated
that such ii tr.x would add three million
dollars to the resources of tbat govern?
ment. The fact that autimobile* are very
active agencies in Ihe destruction of good
roads, and Ihe further consideration tbat
good roads are necessary to their com?
fortable use, go lar to make the impo?
sition of such a tsx justifiable. It Ki nhl
also be remembered that, as a rule, the
owners of such vehicles are well able to
bfar the burdon imposed upon them.
It is a crime, punishable by fine, for
servants to bri ak the chinaware of an
employer, according to the ruling of a
15-verly, N. .!.. justice of the peace. A
woman there lad csiised the arrest of
her colored housemaid, whom she sc
C med of smashing a number of pieces of
her best chinaware. TheViuire weighed
the evidence very gravely and gave hit
decision, but ai the trembling culprit
was unable to produce the fine she was
reminded to the custody of a home for
colored girls. Should the servants .if
this city be held responsible for the
china, glass and other ar ides tney
break the sir.e of the jail would have lo
be increased

According to the New York Tribune
President Taft is greatly worried over
the tarifi bill, which instead of being re?
vised downward, aa waa promised tbe
people, is being made worse than the
Dingley schedules. That he will sign the
bill is a foregone conclusion. Then the
question it how can be justify himself in

Ot-rmana' Hostility to England.
Kiel, June fi. ?The strongest anti
English note yet heard in German
i lllcial circlet dominated today's aunutl
general meeting of tbe Herman Ntvy
League, under th" pre sid -cry of Admiral
Roaster. All dissimulation wis thrown
?side ind the delegates openly advocated
the accelerated upbuilding of tbe Ger?
man navy "lo contest thc present naval
supremacy of Eogland." The boldness of
man) or the speeches was suprising. In
nearly every utterance there was marked
hostility to England, and the resolutions
tbat were adopted uuanimonily plainly
favor the building of a Herman navy
that will sttnd supreme in tbe world.
The annual report disci -feel the fact that
thf-re are nearly a million members nf
the league, all clamming for a bigger
navy. The league also went on record in
urging Germany to be supreme in aerial
equipment, expressing its belief that the
wars of the future will be decided in the
air.
Prince Henry, of Prussia, a brother of
the emperor mido a speech lo the con?
ference this afternoon, in which he ex?
tolled the work of tbe navy league and
by si doing, is considered to have gi?en
virtusl approval of tbe utterances made
against England.
don, Juno b ?While detaili of
the meeting of the < orman Nival League
at Kiel have not been received herp, the
fact that the Germans openly threw
oil the cloak of secrecy and admitted the
ii moa Intention of wresting from
England control of the seas, has merply
accentuated the bittetMM of the British
ann (Jprman feeling. The extreme na?
tional anti-C-rman feeling is so intense
thal nothing short of actual war could
add to it. The clh-ct of the Herman Naval
League meeting, however, is certain to
be the immediate construction of the
eight new Dreadnaught tppe of battle?
ships which tho British government had
boped to delay because of the condition
ol the national finances.

Sixty-first Congress.
Washington, Juoe 5.
8KNATB.
A plain straightforward lalk ie what
Siuator Colliver, of Iowa, ooe of the
"progressive republican" senators, call?
ed bis review of the Aldrich speech in
tbe Senate today. Mr. D dllver did tome
of bis plainest Hiking when Mr. Ald?
rich, after tbe Iowan hid been talking
for a tew minutes, slatted to leave the
Senate chamber. His action brought from
Mr. Doliiver mu indignant protest againat
Mr. Aldrich's apparent determination
not to listen to ibe answer to hil argu?
ment.
"I have an engagement," exp'ained
Mr. Aldrich a* the reason for his de?
parture.
'?I waDt to engage yon here," ex?
claimed Mr. Doliiver. He said that
Mr. Aldrich could uni turo his back on
what be. Mr. Doliiver, waa going to sty
without subj ciing himself to ter iou*
moral consequences.
Mr. Aldrich resumed his sett, bat
within tea minutes he had slipped out
to his committee room.
Mr. Doliiver said be desired to avoid
any spirit of harshness in his speech,
and be would be tbe lau man to sty
uokicd things of Mr. Aldrich. The
facts in the case, however, required thal
somebody make a plain statement. He
challenged Mr. Aldrich's statement that
the Aldrich amendment to tbe cotton
schedule would all set only 10 per cent
ut tbe cotton importations. Mr. Dolli
ve r ipioted S >nator Smoot to show that
it would adect 70 per cent. Mr. Aldrich
explained that he did not mean the bulk
? if the importation, but that his amend?
ments would allect only 10 per cent of
tho total valuation of the importation*,
ami he would stand by that statement.
Mr. Doliiver did not deny that view of
the case. Referring to Mr. Aldrich ns
authority Mr. Doliiver said "Thirty
years ago I carried around with nie
copies of the senator's speeches ard
quoted his figures with a confidence thtt
has gradually slipped from my mind.
Senator Dolli vcr advised his colleagues
that they had hotter go to tbeir con?
st UMBU and tell them that they had Ja?
il duties iu tbe cotton schedules
rather than say that the duties had not
been increased. "The American peo?
ple," said he, "are willing to be robbed
but they are not willina to be IlimHam
med.'l Ho ea'd it was ridiculous lo
claim that there were no incresses and
anyone wbo tiied to tell the American
people dillerently would find himself
in tronble.
Mr. Doliiver made a sweeping attack
n Mr. Aldrich for the argument he dew
livered at laat night's session, charging
him with exaggerating the amount lost
by the government on account of rebates
paid importers.
S -natur Oulbersoo, attacked Mr. Al?
drich for having questioued tbe accuracy
of a tarill amendment made by the
1'exas Senator. The latter ahowed tba*.
the statement of facts in question had
been taken bodily from ono of the re
poi ts made hy the finance committee
to the Senate.
Mr. Aldrich said that as to tbat partic?
ular matter 'he report was in error. The
il j ot of the report had been ti
ihow revenues, not a comparison of
rates, snd it was prepared in a hnrry
and consisted nf a great mass of figures
he had informed tbe Senate several times
that it would be found to contain some
errors.
Ssaator Oliver made a persontl state?
ment on tbe floor nf the Senate ss
followa:
"There appeared thia morning in the
public press s dispatch from <i Jdfield,
Nerada, staling that certain officers and
ip reel rs of a Nevada mining company?
among them myself as one of the direc
bad bean indicted by the Esmer
I la c ninty grand jury for conspiring to
defraud that state of certain taxes oe
bullion.
Thc charge is that Ibo company reo
?I red a false statement to the Bullion
tux collector snd that the directors and
officers sanctioned false book-keeping in
order to carry out Iheir conspiracy. "It
is tine to this Senate, of which I have
but. recently become a member, to state
that i bave no personal knowledge of
the facia upon which these cases are
based. I never had any intimation
even tbat such proceedings were coo
temprnteil or impending.
I knew nothing whatever about them
until advised yesterday by telegram. My
aadarttaadiag is that my name, witb
some other others, ia included in the lilt
of defendants merely beeause we happen
to be directors of the company. I desire
to make my denial of any complicity in
this affair, either c -astral lively of actu?
ally, ai emphatic huh ss sweeping as
possible, I have never, knowingly,
violated tho laws of any state and
under no circumstances would 1
censent to, or be a party in, their viols
lion hy men with whom I might be as?
sociated in business."
