" FIERY ATTACK
Seoator Dolfirer Defies Administration to
Ckase Insurgents Ooti
' ASSAILS THE TARIFF
The Iusiirjji-nt Leader of the Senate
j Slashes Ihi^dont Taft, Senator
Aldrich and Speaker Cannon tor
j Faults of the l*arty. Kssentiall)
J. a Challenge to the Administration.
1 From the lips of Senator Dilliver,
of Iowa, the battle cry of the "in1
surgent" Republicans was sounded
on the floor of the Senate the other
day. In a speech which bristled with
defiance to President Taft. Senator
Aldrich. Speaker Cannon and all the
other champions of the Inroads ot
predatory wealth, the great Western
' lawmaker sounded the call for a
new Republican crusade against fake
tariff revision., against the gr?'d and
oppression of monopoly and against
the false leaders of the party to
which Abraham I.iaeoin, its founder,
gave bis heart and soul and finally
his life. Not in years has there been
a spw ch ot such power and eloquence
on either lit or of Congress aud rturiug
the three hours which the thundering
lowun held the floor, the
dumbfounded regulars sat cowering |
in their places, scare* ly one of t hem j
leaving the Senate chamber.
"Last year witnessed two iuipo*tant
hou/.es perpetuated on the
American peopi said l)olli\er, "the
discovery of the North Pole by l)r.
Cook and the revision of the tariff
downward by Senator Aldrich."
This was the starting point of his
attack ou the Republican "standpatters"
and he kept at it vigorously
from beginning to end. Dolliv r declared
that he spoke as a Republican,
as a guarian of the Republican faith,
and he defid liis enemies to drive
hlui and those who stood with his
fr? m the party. The speech was an
open and ringing declaration of war
on the dominance of commercialism
in politics ad public life.
it was essentially a challenge to i
the Administration, the Aldrich and
to Cannon, to a light to the death.
In his denunciation of the humbug
ami false pretense of the Paye-Al
uricii revision of th - tariff, the Western
senator wont further than in
any of his previous attacks on that
measure. He hurled defiance, mingled
with scorn, at the President,
tilling him lie would welcome deliverance
from the yoke of patronage,
and taunting him with the utter in-' j
consistences of his vuriou* speeches
on the tariff and other subjects. He J
also Referred with withering scorn
to the attacks of Speaker Oannou on
the progressives and the insurgents.
In closing lie solemnly devoted himself
to the tight against monopoly
In concluding S-na^or Dot liver
said: "1 propose to tell not only a hat
has gone on in Congress last year
in connection with the tariff, hut also
what is now going on to prevent
members following their own dictates
of ooscience. 1 am through with
tarifT revision as accomplished by
those interests to which it primarily
belongs. I shall stand on the tioor
