! SENATOR DEPEW GOT
DEMOCRATIC VIEWS ON TRIP TO CAPITAL Inclined to Think Country Is in the Hands of Theorists TALKS GUARDEDLY BEFORE HIS TRIP Was Especially Impressed on Wash ington Trip By Absolute Sinceri ty of Leaders in the Dem ocratic Party II; IIOM.AM) New York. June 15.—(Special.)—In mid May Chauncey M. Depew spent a week in Washington, lie had an opportunity for a number of social meetings with some who were his colleagues in the Senate and who have outstayed him in the Senate chamber. He also paid a call •of courtesy at the White House, spending 15 or 1*0 minutes with the President. After the senator's return to New York he told nia friends what some of his experiences in Washington were, and in what they had enlightened him upon .the attitude of the administration and Congress toward American business life. The senator did not then see lit, however, to speak for publication. Some of the incidents of his Washington visit were of such exclusively social character that, although much im portant information was obtained, yet ho could not, in good taste, speak except ing in a very general way of them. The senator, however, did, when sailing for Europe lust week, concentrate into two or three paragraphs and in an im personal manner much that he had learned and heard at Washington. He was confirmed in the opinion he had long held—an opinion, too. which Theodore Roosevelt did not hesitate to express— that Congress could pot be persuaded to | adopt any currency plan to which tire name of Senator Aldrich was attached. I Senator Depew, however, was told by several of the leading democratic senators that the probabilities are strong that Congress will, before its adjournment, pass a law which will correct some of .ho evils that lurk in our present banking and currency laws and will provide an elastic quality to our currency and a wise reserve system. Of this the senator did not speak for publication just before he sailed for Eu rope, but he 1ms informed his friends in this city that unless the temper of Con gress changes and unless that almost im possible thing happens—a change in Pres ident Wilson’s mind—the country will a revised and improved national currency law which may he ol great ser ' °e by the time of the moving of the crops in the fall. Two Points of View As interesting and as earnest an even ing s conversation as was taken part in by the senator when he was in Wash ington was one at which several demo i cratic senators were present. Senator De- | ! pew was greatly impressed by the earn-I estness with which these senators defend-1 |cd the underlying principle which is ens-1 | bodied in the Underwood tariff bill. They confessed to him their regret that Amer i« an sugar growers, cane and beet, have not been able so thoroughly to develop their industry as not to be compelled t<> rely upon what these senators called ^‘governmental subsidy” in the form of a protective tariff rate in order to secure j any returns from the industry. But the senators were convinced that in the long run It would be the better part to utilize tho soil for other products whose suc cessful culture does not depend upon ;l protective tariff. That, the senators informed Depew, is the view taken by President Wilson. He returned from Washington satisfied that the country is to put to the test the prin ciple which underlies the doctrine of a tariff for revenue only, but not the severest test possible, since it is recog nized and frankly stated that there would be injustice in adopting a tariff bill framed entirely upon the tariff for reve nue only principle. A tariff of that kind must be built up gradually, but if the test which is to bo made with the Under wood bill is satisfactory then the time is not distant when there will he other re visions of the tariff until at last the tariff for revenue only law will stand upon the statute books. Theory and Business Experience Shortly before Senator Depew sailed for Europe he said in detail something w hir h he put in the concrete form while chat ting with the newspaper men upon the deck of the steamship. To the reporter's the senator said: “Our government is be ing run by theorists. Practical business men are looking on alarmed. Protection principles are actually essential if we are to maintain our wage scale. ‘‘Free trade might make tilings cheaper, but without protection we wouldn’t have money enough to buy them.” This is but a tabloid expression con centrating much that Senator Depew heard and learned In Washington. In pri vate conversation with his friends after his return from Washington, the sen ator said that he did not fail to regard with admiration and with respect the sin cerity with which tfie leaders in both 'AT PARKER’S' You Can Bring Your Prescriptions aud have confidence of them being filled carefully, as only the Purest Drugs are used, by the best experienced licensed pharmacist.

COMMERCIAL CONGRESS PLANS BIG CONVENTION IN MOBILE Mobile, June 13.—(Special.)—Sixty commercial organizations in as many southern states will spread tin* gospel of the Southern Commercial congress in as many southern cities and the ad vertising clubs of the southeastern division of ^h© associated advertising clubs of America will work for the con vention which will l»e held In this city in connection with the opening of the Panama canal. This statement was made by Mr. L. <\ Irvine, director of the Southern Commercial congress who has just returned to the city from a visit to the two conventions at Charleston, S. C., and Baltimore, Md., respectively. A great pageant is being prepared by Alabama under the direction of Mr Irvine and the Mobile chamber of com merce to honor the memory of John Tyler Morgan, who conceived the idea of a great canal connecting the Atlantic with the Pacific. Kach county in the state will he represented. The citites of Montgomery, Mobile and Birming ham will vie with each other in a show of their products. Mr. Irvine says he finds that the disappointment of the south in not securing the Pan-Amer ican exposition for New Orleans will be a stimulus in making the Mobilie celebration representative of the people whose rights were trampled on in send ing the exposition to San Francisco. FDRTHIS WEEK Showers Along East Gulf States During Week, Says the Weather Bureau ashington, June 15.—Warm weather with clear .skies over the greater part of the country is predicted for the coming week by the weather bureau. “There will be scattered thunderstorms the first part of the week along the northern border,” the weekly bulletin says, “and by the middle of the week showers will set in along the east gull and south Atlantic coasts. “No important storm is charted to cross the country during the ensuing week, al though a disturbance of minor intensity will form Tuesday or Wednesday over the western plateau region and advance thence in a northeasterly direction, at tended by Jocal thundershowers, and reach the region of the great lakes by Thursday or Friday.” houses in Congress in the majority party discussed the principles and questions which relate to American business life. But the senator said, furthermore, that it was apparent to everybody who had been trained as a business man, either as a banker, manufacturer, or tin operat ing force in the railraod systems, that many of the leaders in Congress have not tiie slightest comprehension of any of the details and of any but a few of the general principles which are necessary if business is to be successful. That is pre cisely what the senator meant when he said lor publication: “Our government is being run by theorists.” A day or two be fore the senator sailed he. said that, in view of the absolute sincerity which char acterizes the leaders of the majority party in Congress and of the considerable public sentiment which supports them, it | is unquestionably well that there be en acted practical demonstration of the ef fect of this quality and economic need upon American business life. In no other way can it lie definitely learned whether | the theorists or the practical business men ! are now right and have been right, each from their respective point of view. A Significant Comment A great deal of comment has been oc-»1 caeioned by & statement made by Cor nelius Vanderbilt just before he sailed for Europe last week. Mr. Vanderbilt confessed that the decision of the supreme court in the so-called Minnesota rate case was for him a puzzling one, since he had been unable to get, by the hurried read ing that was possible for him, a clear un derstanding of what the decision meant. Then, gliding off from this point, Mr. \ anderbilt said that be was satisfied that unless the interstate commerce commis sion granted the application of the rail roads for a 6 per cent increase In rates the railroads would be compelled in the fall to refuse to accept the transportation of some of the harvest, certainly in case the crops this year are as great as they now give promise to he. No railroad manager has cared to speak with the frankness which Mr. Vanderbilt used, since there was fear that a state ment of that kind might be regarded as an Implied threat. But it has been known that in railroad circles the apprehension is grave that unless an increase of rates is permitted by the interstate commerce commission there may come in the fall serious congestion of freight at the great terminals in case the harvest makes a record. MOBILE SUMMER SCHOOLS OPEN TODAY Enrollment of Four to Five Hundred Children Predicted by School Superintendent Mobile, June 13.—(Special.)—The summer schools of the Mobile public school system will open Monday with an enrollment of 400 to 500 children, according to Superintendent of Schools S.

A DOCTOR OF LAWS Last Honorary Title Con ferred by Washington and Lee Thursday University, June 15.—(Special.)—Four times a doctor of laws is the record so far achieved by President George 11.

The conferring of this de gree carries with it the recognition of Dr. Denny's' eminent services not only to the old Virginia university, but to the cause of education as a whole. President Denny’s first honor of this kind came to him a good many years ago when the LL. D. degree was con ferred upon him by a college in South Carolina. The next came to him from Washington college in Maryland. Lust year, following Dr. Denny’s removal to Alabama and his allying himself with those who are laboring for the ad vancement of southern education, Tu lane university of Louisiana conferred upon him an LL. D. degree. Dr. Denny was deeply affected by the action of Washington and Lee. “Com ing as it does from those with whom I worked for many years, I feel that this is the greatest honor that has ever been conferred upon me,” lie said.

JULY POSITION 10 New Crop Conditions Will Figure Prominently in Cotton Market New Orleans, June 15.—The July deal; and new crop conditions will he tin main influences in the cotton market i this week, rt will be interesting to oh- j serve whether the July position can | maintain its prominence. For. some j time past it has dominated the en- j tire situation: bears have almost open-I ly acknowledged them their fear of the I operations under way and have al- ! lowed them to wholly offset favorable! ly acknowledged tbnlr fear of the ; mains to be seen whether this stat. | of affairs can prevail much longer, es- 1 peeially if crop accounts continue to Improve. What the bear side fears most is that large quantities of cotton will leave this side of the water as the result of acceptances ol deliveries against July. Stocks at ports in this country are already 100.000 bales less than they were a year ago, which brings about a trying situation for shorts, and further depletion would become extremely cmbarassing. It is | Claimed in some quarters that owners of spots in the south have been sel lers of July contracts and will deliver a large quantity of cotton. Anything that develops this week to strengthen this belief have an important bearing on the immediate position of the mar ket. While the entire cotton belt has re cently experienced abnormally cold weather for June, crop accounts haw not reflected any great damage, al though the trade believes that the growth of the young plant has been considerably retarded by the cold. Some complaint of too much rain is coming in from the nortlierin counties of Ala bama and Oleorgia. What will be most favorable this week will be bright, warm weather. The crop can get along without any moisture at all and would make quick growth under forcing tem peratures. Such conditions would un doubtedly lead to renewed strong short selling of the new crop months, al though it might not have any effect ui all on the old crop options. The spot markets will be closely watched. Recent signs of an improve ment in the Inquiry were important and any further Improvement in the demand will serve to intensify the effect of the campaign in July.
