CUMMINS ROASTS SENATORS. telegraph to The Tribune. Washington, July 1. In an attack on Newlund's Trade Commission Bill, CuniminB of Iowa, in the Senate de nounced Democratic senators "who would not even remain in chamber to listen to the discussion of one of their own bills." "I suppose it is the result of caucus legislation" said Cummins, ''that we seldom have more than a dozen senators in chamber. Democra tic senators, no doubt have been told that this legislation would be passed and legislation be defeated, therefore they don't care whether they come to the Senate chamber. "Railroading legislation has almost reached an automatic status these days, but I wish it were possible to compel at least a majority of the Democratic senators to remain in chamber while we discuss bills which we have been told we have to act upon before we are allowed to go home."

Juhi 1. Five hundred women have learned that the president of the United Slates does twt avail himself of the one great prerogative of their sex when they called on dim to ascer tain why they are not given one other prerogative oenjyed by citi zens of the masculine, gender in this greeal land of the free and home fo the brave. They had not learned tvhat others of the presi dent's own sex have long since learned, that the president once his mind is made up never changes. The suffraaists thouaht then had him cornered because he had advocated the repeal of the tolls clause of the Panama Canal act, and had put it through Congress, despite the declaration of the Democratic platform. The canal legislation came ajier ine previous visit of the suffragists, on which occasion the president had told them he could not recommend legislation on any subject that had not been included in the platform of his party. "Ah. he has changed his mind," they argued to themselves. "He cannot turn us down again on that pretext." Mrs. Harveii W. Wilcu headed the delegation, which was re ceived in the East room, and introduced the speakers. These in cluded Mrs. Iihcla Child Dorr and Mrs. Ellis Logan, president of the District of Columbia Federation of Women's Clubs. The women put it up to the prcsiaeni as an inmviauai wnciner ne wouia use his influence to have the Bristow-Mondcll resolution put through Congress at this session. The President replied In qart: Mrs. Wiley and Ladies None could fail to be impressed by this great company of thoughtful women and I want to assure you that it to me is most impressive. I have stated once before the posi tion which as the leader of a party 1 feel obliged to take and I am sure that you will not tvish me to state it again. "Perhaps it would be more serviceable if I ventured upon the confident conjecture that the Baltimore convention did not embody this very important question in lye platform which it adopted be cause of its conviction that the principles of the constitution, which allotted these Questions to the states, were well considered principles from which they did not wish to depart. " You have asked me to state my personal position with regard to the vendina measure. It is mu conviction that this is a matter for settlement by the slates and not by the Federal Government and therefore, that being obvious that there ts no grouna on your part for discouragement in the progress you are making, and my passion being for local self-government and the determination by the great cotnmunitics into which this nation is organized of their own policy and life. J can only say that since you turned away from me as a leader of a party and asked me my position as a man, I am obliged o state it very frankly, and I believe that in stating it I am probably in agreement with those who framed the platform to which allusion has been made.
