T W i 6 7 15 17 21 17 OUR WASHINGTON LETTER ( Special Correspondent ) Vice President Sherman makes an ideal presiding officer of the Senate from the viewpoint of the Old Guard. He knows how to side track progressive legislation , and his heart is in the work. An instance : When the resolu tion providing for the direct elec tion or senators , passed in the House by a vote of 296 to 16 , was presented to the Senate it was im mediately referred by Vice Presi dent. Sherman to the committee on privileges and elections. This is the committee that white washed Lorimer , and as constitut ed at present is dominated al solu- tely by Tory senators. Inasmuch as the resolution in the last Congress was referred to and acted upon by the judiciary committee , "the senate was amazed at Sherman's action. Culberson of Texas moved a reconsideration of the action and the resolution will probably be turned over to the judiciary committee after all. The incident is impressive , howeveras revealing how determined the op ponents of popular government are to defeat the will of the people. Jugglery of a character similar to Shermans is being used in the sec ret conferences of reactionaries in a determined effort to pack all the- senate committees against progres sive legislation. Step by step , the committee on patronageconsisting of Hon. Jas. T.Lloyd of Missouri , Hon. Martin D. Foster Illinois Hon. Benj. G. Humphreys of Mississippi work ing out the difficult problem of apportioning the various positions inherited by the Democrats along with the control of the House of Representatives' That everyone should receive the exact position he preferred wrs obviously impos sible. But the committee consider ed fully the claims of the appli cant , ith the result that the House membership in general is pleased with the results. One of the next steps in th6 Democratic program will be to re duce the heavy tax on woolen goods. If this can be accomplished as planned by the Democrats , the western senator who has been call ed the greatest sheperd since Abraham may be somewhat wrat- hy , but-ninety millions of Ameri cans will wear more elegant and more comfortable attire. The people , after a long and stubborn fight with special privi lege , have restored popular gove rnment in the House of Represen- eatives , the lower branch of Con gress. The fight must not stop un til the people are equally well re presented in the United States sen ate and in the executive mansion. That reactionery republicans in the senate are lying in wait for-the farmers' free list bill and other progressive legislation passsd by the democratic house , is becoming more evident every day.The mo tive is two-fold to protect the profits of the tariff trusts , and to prevent if possible , the democrats from carrying out projnises made to the people in the last campaign. The group of Senate Tories is still able to exert a tremenduous in fluence upon legislation. Having packed the important committees ' with men who-take tlftr corporation attitude toward the particular legis lation to come before those com- mitteF , the reactionaries are in a position to continue serving special privilege by obstructing , and per- nape preventing , the passage of legislation desired by the people. ' Among those whom the public may safely rely upon to oppose most of the progressive house measures are Gallinger , Smoot , Guggenheim , Stephen son , Lodge , Oliyer , Warren , Perkins and a doz en others , who will at all times have the hearty co-operatiou of Vice President Sherman. Back of this group of reactionar ies are arrayed the tariff trusts , the railroads , Wall street , Standard Oil and the , balace of the organized wealth of the country. The democrats and progressive republicans are pitted against this combination. The two forces will , wlen | necessary , combine to prevent the passage of a bad bill , but they they will , be helpless at times to prevent the Tories from obstructing the passage of democratic legisla tion such as the free list bill. Ahout the only thing the average citizen cnn do is to keep tab on the votes of his individual representa tive in'both house and senate , not ing particularly whether they vote for or against measures desired by the people , and when election tima rolls around to act accordingly. Co-operating with the senate re actionaries who are planning to kill the free list bill and other simi lar anti-fcrusb measures , is Nelson YVDmarth AlJrich of Rhode Island. Nominally Mr. Aldrich is connect ? d only with an institution of his own creation , called the monetary com mission. Tue commission has a suite of rooms-adjoining the rooms ocjupied-by . the'finance committee , * J > * * ) > * to which the free list bill will go. If it should happen , * opines the Cleveland Press , that the door were open between the/rooms of the finance committee and the rooms of the monetary commission , it might happen that former Senator Aldrich might communicate with Senator Penrose , the new chair man of the finance committee , and * thus the titular head of the senate majority might have the benefit of the views of the ex-lea ler ( and pos sibly leader de facto ) of the United States senate. As a matter of face , Mr. Aldrich leaps in'close touch with the men he trained to be reactionaries as when ne was actually a member of the senate. President Taf t took the leading part in the fight against giving the progressive republicans in the Een- ate the committee places they de manded , which fight resulted in leaving all the big senate commit tees the same citidels of special privilege that they were in the pre vious congress. Before the republican caucus was held the regular republicans of the senate signed an agreement by which they agreed to give the pro gressives the one-fourth - representa tion upon all the committees to \\hich they were entitled because of their numerical strength. Senator Penrose , who signed the agreement for the reactionaries , is said to have bitterly arraigned his regular col leagues for putting him in the po sition of breaking his political word , which he declared he had always especially prided himself upon keeping inviolate. It is declared Pen rose's breach of faith with the ' progressives was forced by White- House pressure. Pres. Taffc considers progressives like La Follette his personal "ene mies , and he does not want them in a position to assist the democrats to pass progressive house legisla tion like the farmers' free list bill through senate committees , which they could do by combining with the democrats if given the repre sentation ; on the big committees that was promised them and which 'they are justly entitled to because of their numbers.
