HOT SPEECH IN
STILL IS A GOOD REPUBLICAN
Hawkeye Statesman Ably Upholds
Cause of Congressmen Who In*
sist on a Real Revision of„
Chicago, NOT. 8.—Albert B. Cum*
tains, United States senator from
Iowa, as chief speaker Saturday night
at the banquet of the Marquette club,
made his answer to Speaker Cannon's
recent attacks on him and the other
"insurgents." Senator Cummins' ad
dress was lively from start to finish,
and a vigorous defense of those sena
tors who refused to vote for the Al
drich tariff measure. In part the
Iowa statesman said:
Mr. Topstmaster and Gentlemen: In
view of some things that have hap
pened since I accepted your invitation,
you will not look upon it as either
strange or Inappropriate, I am sure,
if I am a little more personal than is
my habit. This is a Republican club,
and it has borne a high and honorable
part in giving expression to our faith
and in giving strength to our organi
cation. It is therefore peculiarly well
fitted to consider an interesting con
troversy that has recently arisen with
in the party ranks. For that reason,
and because I am deeply anxious to
preserve the party strength, I have
chosen this occasion to speak of the
dispute In hope that a better under
standing may follow a fair and candid
discussion of our differences of opin
Attacked by lllinoisan.
A month ago a distinguished son of
Illinois came to Iowa, obviously an
gry and therefore, in one of his hys
sterlcal moods. He made a speech os
tensibly in defense of the rules of the
house of representatives, but which
was in fact, an assault upon those
who had opposed the Republican ma
jority In congress upon the tariff
measure. Not content with burning
us at the stake, he scattered our
ashes to the four winds in order to
make sure that we would be lost to
the Republican party forever and
ever. He exalted me to a pre-emin
ence among these insurgents which I,
do not deserve, but which I would be
proud to occupy, and declared, with a
vehemence which you who know him
will appreciate, that I had become an
ally of a certain eloquent gentleman
whose quadrennial business has "been
to carry the Democratic banner to ov
erwhelming defeat. Warming to his
work, he made another speech a few
days ago, at Elgin, in which he repeat
ed in all the colors of his rainbow
phraseology the denunication of those
who committed the horrid crime of
voting against the tariff bill, and
again consigned them to the lowest
depths of Democrfctic perdition and
then to completely satisfy his lust for
blood, he assigned to Senator La Foi
lette and myself a Superheated cham
ber in this region of the damned. With
all these imprecations, explusions and
exterminations still ringing in my
enrs, I feel like a member of the ta
ted brigade of which the poet sang:
Cannon to the right of them
Cannon to the left of th^m
Volleyed and thundered.
Cannon's Charge Futile.
It will not avail Mr. Cannon and his
associates anything to declare that
we have joined hands with the Demo
cratic party, for every intelligent man
knows that this is simply an appeal
to a blind passion and -a senseless
prejudice. The "insurgents believe that
the Republican party is the best in
strumentality to secure and maintain
good government. They are proud of
its history they love its traditions
and I venture the prediction that in
the campaign of next year their voices
will be heard high above all others
defending its doctrines and sustain
ing its candidates. Their struggle Will
be within the lines, but they will not
hide the truth as they see it for they
know that if the Republican party is
to be-permanently successful, it must
be faithful to its platforms, and must
meet courageously and justly the new
age of commerce and business with
its new problems and questions. It
cannot any longer be progressive in
its platform and stand-pat in its con
A few months ago I said that I was
willing to accept an arbiter as to the
Republicanism of those who voted
against the tariff bill, and I hasten to
name the judge. I appeal to the na
tional Republican platform of 1908
and tested by the criterion of that in
strument the Republican voters of the
United States will determine just as
rapidly as they have the opporunity
to do so, whether our votets were in
accordance with its declarations end
What Is Protection?
I understand perfectly that it would
have been helpfut'to party harmony
If we could have voted together but
that is not the question. The plat
form was for protection. All the Re
publicans in congress were for pro
tection but the view of these high
priests appears to be that if they

protection required 50 per cent., and

INDIANS TO GIVE UP LANDS.
S. D. Tribe Ready to Have
Acres Thrown Opsn.
Washington, Nov. 8.—The Pine
Ridge Indians of South Dakota have
practically agreed to terms uader
which they are willing to have 780,
000 acres of their reservation lands
thrown open to settlement. Major
James McLaughlin, Indian inspector,
has been In conference with the In
dian bureau officials in Washiagton
and has reported to them the deci
sions reached by the Indians at pow
wows held at Pine Ridge during Sep
A bill introduced by Senator Gamble
last spring provided for the Pine
Ridpre opening, but the Indians had
not agreed to the terms under-which
tliey were willing to let their lands
go. They have insisted on a price
of $2.r0 instead of $1.50 for the lands
set aside as school lands and this will
be satisfactory to the government.
The Indians also have insisted^ on a
change of the western boundary of
the lands to be opened.
The Pine Ridge agency comprises
about 2,800,000 acres. If the Gamble
bill is approved this winter it will be
necessary to make allotments of lands
to the Indians, classify the lands, and
prepare for their sale late next year
or in 1911.
La Crosse, Nov. 8.—Phil Allen, Jr.,
vice president of the First National
bank of Mineral Point, which failed a
month ago because of his alleged de
falcations, was indicted by the United
States grand jury here on 26 counts,
including almost every variety of vi
olation of the banking laws known to
the comptroller's office.
Immediately after word was sent
from the juryroom of the„indictment,
which came at the conclusion of four
days devoted to the case, Allen was
arraigned before United States Dist
rict Judge Sanborn. He pleaded not
guilty and announced through his at^
torney his intention of standing trial.
The trial was set for the December
term of court in Dane county. The
bail was reduced from $60,000 to $50,
000. Allen declared he believed he
would be able to furnish the lesser
The amount of embezzlement char^
ed in the indictment aggregate $90,
000. Government officials, however,
said that this represented only a part
of the defalcations, which were esti
mated at between $500,009 and $750,
