lor Smoot's case was discussed by the
Benate committee on privileges and

called the committee together "for" the
purpose of discussing the status of the
case and the question as to whether
further testimony should be taken or
additional arguments heard.
It was the unanimous opinion of the
committee that additional, testimony
should be taken up on the leading
Matures of the protest. This testi

The fight against the bill was open-,
ed In the interest of the beet sugar In

He recalled the republican member
ship to Its pledges on the stand-pat tar
iff planks of the party.
Clark Surprised at Defeat.
In speaking generally of the area
and the productiveness of the Philip
pine Islands, Clark said he had never
been so much surprised since a repub
lican beat him for congress In 1894.
"You oould, he said, "mm the whole
of the islands into the congressional
district represented by Stevens of
Texas." Stating the democratic posi
tion on the bill he said his party
would vote for It, although in commit
tee the democrats had voted against
it simply because the democratic sub
stitute for absolute free trade had not
been supported by the republicans.
MIssourTan Raises Laughter.
Illustrating the changes in the-to

claring th6re were in his district 150
brick houses and 100 brick barns, all
equal in architectural beauty to the
executive offices occupied by President
Roosevelt, and all built out of the
profits of tobacco raised and sold dur
ing the civil war for more than a dol
lar a pound. Discussing as aif absurd
ity, the enormous amount of sijgar that
the Philippines are supposed to pro
duce, Clark gave the amount raised "in
the United States proper" and. also the
production "In the United States im
proper," In vhich he Included Hawaii,
Porto Rico and the Philippines.
The ways and means committee', he
said, had been informfed by sworn,
statements that every, acre In the
Philippines would be planted in tobac
co, And-by the sugar people'that these
same acres would be planted la sugar.
It all reminded him of draw poker or
a game of duckB?p.nd drakes. He did
not blame the beet sugar people fpr
working against the bill, but said they
were seven years behind. They should
have blocked the admission of Ha

Speaks From the Forum.
Clark spoke from the "foruni," in
front, of- the speaker's desk and as he
progressed he would cross to the re
publican side and emphasize his state
ments with gestures directly In the
faces of his-political opponents. Hav
ing his ^attention called to the "sugar
trust" 6y a Question from Broussard
of Louisiana, he declared dramatically
"I'll tell you 'about the sugar trust if
'ypu beet sugar people over here will
yote with, us to wipe out the differen
tial tariff of 26^6 centfi on refined sug
ar, we will kill the sugar trust as dead
as a mullet." He recalled the sugar de
bate of two years ago and. drew Dal
zell of Pennsylvania In£o the discus
sion to substantiate bis statement that
the house organization was "run over
rough shod on 'that day."
'I guess that's so," admitted Dalzell,
"but what became of them after
wards?" he asked.
"D, well," said Clark, "but If you
beet sugar people will, lying in a prop
osition here now to abolish the dif
ferential or to- cut it down one-half,
I will stand with, you."
JThe question whicfc was of immeas
urably greater importance than the
Philippine sugar question, Clark de
clared, was the German tariff situa
tion and ithe Dingley tariff in general.
