It may take it as long to finish up this stretch as it did to discuss the schedules, neverthe less it is started. The corporation tax is up aud bids fair to be discussed for a couple of weeks. After that comes tho administrative features of the bill. The discussion of this will require at least a week ;thon the bill must come into the senate and at the best will be there for several days liefore it is sent to confer ence. Anr time after the first of Aug ust is a reasonable guess 0u adjourn ment. The last schedule to be discussed was an amendment layiug a duty on tea. This was pr seated by Senator Tillman of South Carolina. Mr. Tillman show ed that in his state tho best kind of ten was being grown and that with a little assistance in the shape of a duty he thought that the southern states could I produce all the tea that is necessary to supply the consumption of tho United States. Of course Mr. Tillman talked from the revenue standpoint but the above is what he meant. Senator Hey burn of Idaho, who is a tea drinker, openly said that tho South Carolina ten was the best he ever tnsted. He was in duced to try it several years ago and will now drink nothing else. During tho discussion of this matter Senntor Scott was able to stuud ou his record as a proteciiouist. He said in speaking of the republicans who were going to vote against this duty: •I believe that the majority, speaking of this tea question, it they a-e pro tectionists, have made a mistake Mv theory as a protectionist is, and always has been, that the protection of tiie home industry ulwnys lowers the price of the article. I have no apology to make, though the senator from South ('arolina said a while ago that the ma jority would have to apologize for some of the votes. I shall not, for I have voted consistently on this tariff hill from the standpoint of a protectionist I If we can prodneo tea in this country, it will only be a short time before this i production will bring the price down. ! This has been proved in the ease or : every article protected, manufactured or agricultural, in the history of protec ttve tariffs That is the kind of a pro tectionist I am." In answer ton question of Mr. Dixon, who was discussing the tea duty at that time, Mr Scott again said : If this proposed duty be impost'll, tin* people will not pay a cent more for tea than they are paying today. The senator from South ('arolina stated the case very properly when ho suid that the history or the price of tea suhstan -tiate.- the assertion that when the duty went on or went off it did not change the price of tea to the consumer.” ..worn mice was culmiimti <1 in Wash on the »0th of Jane. Mr. lias HI [ S. Kifz au<l Miss Clyde Boggess Isith of BluHield, W. Va , being married at the First Presbyterian Church by Rev. Dr. McLeod, tin* pastor. The wed* was very quiet owing to a recent dealh in the family. Miss Boggess was accompanied by her cousin, Miss Aileen 1 Akers of Blnefleld, and Judge Harold! A. Ritz, broth* r of the groom, accotn panied/ the party to the city. Miss Akers returned the next day to Blue field and Mr. and Mrs. Ritz'proceeded j on a honeymoon journey. Judge Ritz’s visit to the capital was! due to tiio fact that he is making the 1 acquaintance of the attorney general I and familiarizing himself with some of the details of work in the department of justice, as he lias recently been ap pointed United States District Attor ney for the Southern Di trict of West Virginia to succeed the Hon. Elliott Northcott. He was accompanied by 1 h!s assistant, Mr. H. D. Hummed of Charleston, W. Va., and they spent a1 number of hours with the attorney general. In speaking of the business outlook in the state Judge Ritz said : “For the last two months I have been at home very little. My business has called mo all over the southern end of the state. I find that business is im proving. In the Pocahontas coal* field one day last week I #75 cars of coal were shipped. This is almost up to the rec ord. I think the daily average ship ment of cars during the month of June reached 1400 1 have no doubt that by Sept. 1st normal conditions in business will have been reached. The tariff is virtually settled and down in West Vir ginia we ran go ahead feeling confident that our interests are going to be look ed after. '•Politically things are very quiet. The coal meu are very much pleased with the results of the tariff light made by Senator Elkins and Senator Scott all business men are pleased. Senator Scott has made himself especially strong all through our section by his untiring efforts on this tariff bill He was strong before aud his fight for West Virginia interests has only strengthened his hold. S I don't think anyone in our state stands a ghost of n chance against him.” Among other visitors to the city dar ing the week was Col Silas M. Smith of Htueiield. Colonel Smith is the President of the Fidelity Banking and Trust Company and is one of the coming “money kings’’ of the southern section of the state. Other West Virginians in the city this week were H. M. Kittle of Philippi and W. B. Rector of Belingtou. These gentlemen spent a day in the oapital on business aud returned home aft* r listening to taritY speeches for an hour or so. Washington, D. U., ) July 10. i The two West Virginia senators clos ed the tariff tight in the senate, so far as West \ irginia s interests were concern ed, in u blaze of glory. They secured the adoption of an amendment providing for iv countervailing duty on oil when the hill was before the senate proper. They were successful on a yea and nay vote by a majority of thirteen This is on * of the most remarkable lights ever made in the United States senate. Le*s than a week ago lie.itun on a voa and nay vote on an amendment to impose a duty ouerode petroleum these two men led a fight to victory. Defeated, but not discouraged, they picked them selves up after their knockdown of last week aud went to work to secure the ndoption of a countervailing duty. This is the same fenture in the present law by which crude petrol uin is protected. The fight has beeu kept up night and day, though but little was seen on the surface. When the mneudmont was presented hi the senate on the Nth tin* leaders on the democratic Hid**, together with the “free trudo" republicans claim ed that the countervailing duty was pre cisely the same thing as u specific duty . Notwithstanding this the senators were able to reverse the voto of a week ago which showed u majority of six against them to a vote in their favor by thir teen. They were congratulated on all sides. The amendment adopted iH as follows: “Provided, That if there be imported into tlie United States crude petroleum produced in any country which im poses a duty on petroleum exported from the United States, there shall in such eases l*e levied, paid, and collected a duty upon said petroleum ho imported one hair or the duty imposed by such country.” To thiH Senator Gore offered an amendment that no importer of crude oil should ho entitled to the drawback provisions of the bill. This was accepted by the committee. Senator Scott at the last moment also succeeded in getting nn additional duly placed on galvanized sheet iron and steel, unrinv tne debate on Tuesday, the 6, Senator Likins railed up an amend* ment that ho had introduced allowing a reduction of live per cent in the dutieH prescribed by law on all goods, w'ares and in rchandi.se, and articles of every kind imported iu ships or vessels of the l nited States. This was an effort on the Senator’s part to start the building up of a merchant marine. The Finance committee refused to adopt this amend ment and Seuator Klkins gave notice thnt he won Id introduce it in the fall as a bill and have it referred to the com mittee on commerce On the merchant marine the two West Virginia seua-1 tors are a unit. Koch have spoken iu favor of a policy to build this up and have voted for a bill along those lines. In presenting his argument in favor of his amendment Senator Klkins pointed out that the commerce of the United States had been pushed off the seas by somo of the smallest countries in the world, He showed that there are now fifty million of shipping tonnage en gaged iu transporting onr commerce and that of this amount t93 per cent is foreign. His amendment he said offered a great iodneement to importers to bring all their good* into the United States in American vessels. Snch a proposition costs the government noth ing. He thought that under sneh a law American vessels would be sought by shippers of import goods and spoke of the change that would come as follows : “Wo would again see tho American flag in all the seas of the world, and an American would not feel lonesome when traveling aron.wl the globe. We have everything to make ns the greatest maritime nation iu the world. Must we let American shipping languish and die, ami wait for another generation of statesmen to grow up to do what we fail to do? “This would immediately tend to build up American shipping, in my judgment. The reduction of .*» per cent in the existing tariff would be in the direction of a revision downward, and a sufficient inducement to importers and merchants to secure American ship* to haul (heir goods. wares and merchau ■ dise. This would at once induce capital to build American ships, furnish a igai 1 ket for materials of all kinds entering : into ship building, Mini the employ uient . of thousands of wage earners. '• The l nited States cun rot become a : great naval power unless it lias a great ; merchant marine. No nation has ever I be*'ii jtvt'ftt on the sea which has not had at the same tituo a merchant ma rine.” During the debate on oil, which came up unexpectedly on tho 6th, Senator Scott said in answering attacks made on the proposition to take ouro ortho oil men: ”Mr. President,! want to say that 1 am very sorry at times to see a feeling of hatred, ! may say, or a spirit of veu Keane** manifested against corporations doing business in a large way. The Standard Oil company appears tola* the bogy man at which everybody tnkes a kick. In n»y state since wo refused to put a duty on oil the other dny oil has been reduced 16 cents a barrel. We have ■15,000 people m the state who are in terested in the independent production of oil. “I am very sorry that the fooling is so intense against the Standard Oil company that apparent >y the senate is not willing to do justice to the inde pendent operators. The state of Kan su* has driven the Standard Oil com pany out of that statu, and they have established independent retlnories ns well as independent producers. They are laying pipe lines and the work of competition is going on. But the action ot the senate. the linal ultimate passage of the tariff bill without putting a duty on oil to protect the independent opera tors against this nionoply senators are so terribly incensed against, I think would lx* a great blow at my jicnple and the people of imiuv other states. “Wo hftvom West Virginia discard ed tho little log cabin for a bonutiful little frame cottage. Ami tin* children , from tin* benefits of tlio production of «*il aro being sent to school. 'J'ln* rising generation in West Virginia is being very much benefited by the production ot oil in West Virginia, ami t ho people are building uice beautiful homes; ami they aro reariug their children in tho way they should Do raised.” Senator Itanm thereupon niodo a statement uttaeking tho proposed coun tervailing duty and hold that independ ent operators should be punished if the Standard Oil compniiy did wrong. In reply Senator Scott Haid : ‘ * X wish to ask tho senator before la* sits down to suppose, for instance, that one great concern controlled in a measure tho entire cotton production of this country and yet the senator in his state hod some independent cotton pro ducers , would ho not think it hard if there was not some way hy which his in dependent cotton growers could be pro tected?’' Mr. liacoi} found this proposition a hard one to answer ami dodged it by saying that it would be inconceivable to make a comparison. 1 he Fourth of July in Washington was celebrated in what was called “a safe and sane way.” No cannon crackers, cannons or revolvers, or fire works of any kind, were permitted to be p:.t oil by individuals. The day was given over to speech-making jn various portions of the city where bands and orators wen* provided. In the afternoon a Moral automobile parade was,held which attracted great crowds. The automobiles wen* decorated in flowers and bunting and the procession strung out nearly a mile. Among the judges was Mrs. Scott, tho wife of Senator Scott. She was the only lady chosen and added grace to the decision. Kkapkr. Yukon, Oklii. Ei*.
