February 4.?Taking for hls toxt the Prosldcnt's rocent mes? sage, whlch was so thoroughly dls cussed yesterday, Represeritatlvo John Bharp Wllllams, of Mlsslsslppt, at the opening of the House sosslon to-day eald he dlsagreed with Mr. Hepburn? statement of .yesterday that the mes SAgo met wlth tho approval of tho en tire Amerlean people. "Indeed," ho sald. "thero are thlngs In It sensa tlonnl, federallstlc and dangerous to the Amerlcan republlc." Mr. Hepburn. he declared, . had threatened tho "blg four" of the House ?the Speakor and Messrs. Payne, Dal 20I1 and Sherman?when he asserted that the House would pass tho remedlal teglslatlon the Presldent had recom mended. Ho hoped to seo tho stand nrd of rebelllon ralscd by Mr. Hep? burn, and he sald he hoped to soe eome of'the thirg^ spoken of In the message enacted Into law. He was not n shlpper and thoreforo ho would con sider tho message "wlthout any re gard to tho Hon. Theodore Roose? velt," from whom the message oma nated. "I shall conslder lt."-ho sald. amld loud Democratlc applause, "Just as lf lt had been a message emanatlng ln tho past from Grover Cleveland or Wllllam McKlhley, or a message which moro nearly resembles In lts sub stanco ono t<"(*-,manato ln tho future from the Bon Wllllam Jennlngs Bryan." Rate l.cglsintlon Democratlc. Mr. Wllllams declared that he was not one of those who were afrald of a radieal In the White House. He dis cussed brlefly the hlstory of railroad rate leglslatlon, and lnsisted that lt was of Democratlc orlgln. Mr. Wllllams sald the message was not deservlng of an all around eulogy upon the port ot sttv man who loved Democratlc lnstltutlons. There were, however. many good thlngs In It. He dld not thlnk. he sald. that the Demo? crats would indorse that part of tho message whlch recommended restorlng to the rallroads the power to pool. or which advocated Foderal llcensing of corporatlons, or whlch declared it uso less to attempt to punish "the men, che flcsh, tho beings," who vlolate the law in tho name of corporatlon authorlty. As to the corporatlons. Mr. Wllllams declared they would never be properly punished "until you vlslt punishment upon the flesh and blood from whose brains and by whose acts the viola tlons take place." He referred to Paul Morton, former Secretary of the Ntivy, and asked: "Dld he get out of tlie Cablnet to go to a prison, after a confession of a long continued vlolation of these very laws?" "No," ho sald. "but I read that ho jumped Into a 'lucrative' position In private llfo, wlth a letter of recom mendatlon from the Presldent of tho United States." Mr. Wllliams lnsisted that a corpo? ratlon, as such, could not commlt a crime, and therefore ho advocated pun isliing tho responsible heuds of tho corporations. "Punish one," he sald, "and you will not havo to punish any more." Mr. Wllllams referred to tho Aldrlch bill as "tlio railroad bond credlt strengthenlng blll." Itn Omlanlons Slgnlflcant. Agaln revertlng to the message, Mr. Wllllams recelved more applause from the Democrats when he sald lts omis slons wero more slgnlflcant than lts commlsslons. "Hc has talked," Mr. Wllllams said, "about predatory weallh and rlch and powerful crlmlnals, and how Important lt ls to shackle cun nlng, nnd yet," he sald, "with the execp tion of a little insigniflcant uttorance about puttlng works of art and wood pulp on tho free 11st, he has never ralsed hls volce agalnst the very pols on that lles at the heart of your (Re? publlcan) entire system.
