TDKSDAY EVENING. JUNE 8. 19C9.
Pkoti'i i ion sq high as to be prohibi?
tive, thc (-elusion of tbe foreigner from
American murlee!* and the establishment
of such condition* ss will enable exist?
ing combinations and those yet to be
farmed to stamp out competition, con?
trol production and regulate prices, ate
the purposes of the Aldrich tarifl bill, as
set forth by Senator Aldrich himself.
Annjnncement ofthe strange and new
doctrine came from the Rhode Island
senator yesterday in a heated discussion
o! the pending measure between himself
?nd Senator Beveridge. He made clear
bis own and his followers' intent to put
into effect this plan of extravagant pro?
tection, not as a departure from the
doctrine of republicanism, but as the es
tablisbment of that doctrine through tbe
strength of the combicationa that are to
be benefited by the prospective law.
Those wbo are uot willing to aid in tbe
execution of this purpose are traitors to
the republican parly and enemies of re?
publican protection, Mr. Aldrich
charged. In the face of these assertions,
the senator, remembering lhat the coun?
try is watching with amszement tbe
performance of the republican majority
in the Senate, added to the contradictory
declaration that the pending bill is no
higher than tbe Dingley '.aw, and that
he ia not asking for prohibitive rate*.
He is a believer with lUrnum tbat tbe
American people love to be fooled.

then released as no longer having au
tttority over the books. Secretary (til
ford, who wiih Heinzs was re-elected a
director, had sailed for Europe to escapr
jurisdiction. Heinze, a? tbe defendant,
could not be ordered to produce thc
books as he could not be compelled t<
act against his own interest as an in?
dicted man. This bnt shows bow th

Sixty-first Congress.
Washington, June 8.
8ENATI.
Wool was laken up in the Senate to?
day. The first paragraph considered
was one in which the Aldrich bill
restores the Dingley ra'o on various
kinds of wool waste*. This is an in?
crease of from B to 10 cents a pound over
the Payne rate.
Senator Aldrich cxp'ained that the
finance committee anicndm.nts to the
Payne bill on wool in every case pro?
poned the restoration of tbe Dingley
rate.
A protest against the Aldrich duties
on waste was made by Senator Doliiver,
who stated that the duty on English .ind
Canadian scoured wool was practical y
16 cents a pound' and he objected to a
duty of twice that amount on wool
waste.
Senator Doliiver surprised tbe Sena'.e
by announcing tbe existence of a rat;
trust In this country nod declared that
the prohibitive duty on rags was mainly
for the benefit of lhat corporation. Sena?

manufacturers and got into a discussion
with Senator Smoot as to whether the
short wools produced in the west could
be used by worsted manufacturers,
Senator Carter entertained the Senate
by producing a large vase filled with
wool in various stages of manufacture.
By the use of these samples the senator
was able to demonstrate tbe difference
between woo! in the grease, scoured
wool tops, noils and the various kinds
of by-products.

Cotton Men See the
Neely Compress
Two Exhibitions Were Given Dur?
ing the Convention of Cotton Buy?
ers.
THE MACHINES IN OPERATION.
Why the Manufacturers Were Inter?
ested.
THEY SEE A BK; MONEY SAVER
Ths cotton manufacturer* of the country
who assemble 1 in Richmond to discus* mat?
ter" pertaining tn the ''good cf the order"
took a decided intere-t in tn* Neely t'ottca
Compre** which wan on exhihitiou ead in
constant operation in two pis-es?in a room
on the lower floor of the Jeflero m Hotel aad
convenient to the assembly hull, in which the
?ixt'enth anio.:il convention ofthe A anstice*!
Cotton Manufacturers' Ami x-iati n wah held,
and at Nineteenth and Cary st
Thc model of the riiHchine, which turn* out
a little bale of compressed ootata araty i ?
minutes, was in operation in a lower room of
the Jefferson llot-l, and th* Lin machine,
which (taiI and compress a .r> flpoiin 1 hale
every teu minutes in the day, was in opera
tion at the Cardwell Machine ('ompan.'
Works, Nineteenth and Cary streets, and the
members of the convention saw one or h. th
of the niachit.es at work.
wu\ lil Kl TOO i ni ii: r-c.
It is no wonder that they took such interett
in the working* nf this new machine mid
new method of compre win;; cotton right
straight from the gin, for no people in th*
world have antlered more from the* old style
cf ginning and baling cotton than the Ameri?
can manufacturer of the fleecy staple.
The manu acturers of colton have for lo
these many years had to pay heavy lolls io
the way of storage, insurance and water ab?
sorption, freight rates, etc., and the chi in
that tbe Neely compress will materially re
dure thes? expenses nece sarily canned them
to take notice. Tbe cotton mm hud heard of
the Neely compre s, anil Ihe opportunity af?
forded them to see lor themselves and lie
theirown judges of its virtues wss eagerly
stired upon, and no feature of the sixteenth
annual gathering has no far proven more in?
teresting than the Neely exhibits at the Jef?
ferson, where tbe model turned out little
bales, and at thu Cardwell Machine Works,
where th- coin pie al nnicliine made 500
pouod bales. Every meinbar af tba enliven
tion saw thc little machine perform, and pos?
sibly a fourth of t li -ni made tin- pilgtil
to the Cardwell works io see the complete
machine do its good work. The other three
fonrths nude the p lg ri mage later.
THKY ABKM-3T Bt YK.RS.
Southern manufacturers of cotton buy al?
most every baie ?f cotton they use direct
fi om the ginnery, very few, if nnv, of them
having to deal with the recompressed cotton
min. This is an advantage in a way, but at
the seme time the manufacturer is subject,d
to heavv storage and laMaeaas laen leann
rates, and, in thc cane cf fire, to big lowes
from water absorption. A^ the Neely BO?
press proadfee to be a part of the local gin
situated on the edge of the eeites Mi TO
ahloh the mathers maao?cturef bari
stock for the factory, and claims alas
a perfect lamination that ia within itself a
money saver, it must necessarily obviate ia a
large measnre the loses to the manufacturer
that come I.om eaoas* shove outlined, lt i*
no wonder, therefore, that thc exhibitions of
the Neely compress attracted ihe utu-neiott of
the cotton men gathered ia Richmond.
The exhibitions at tba .let! mon w IS ncees
