ALDRICH FEARS FOR STEEL Bhode Islaad Beaator Caatlona (l leaa-aes that They Hare Cat Daty Almnit la Tw on This Schedale, ' (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON. May 15. (Special Tele gram.) A sharp reduction waa mad It the schedule on barbed wire today, when In reading of th bill paragraph 13 was reached. Senator Burkett had an amend ment pending with reference to this, which asked that the present rate of 1210 per 10P pounds be reduced to tl per hundred. He called up his amendment and naked that the duty be further lowered to 7 cents per 100 pounds. Senator Aldrlch ros prepared to fight this encroachment, but Senator Burkett had already prepared 'tha way, having secured an agreement with senators from th--se states where barbed wire Is manufactured tha tthe 7i-ccnt rate would not be opposed by them. Senator Aldrlch soon discovered this fact and with drew the fight he Intended to make, with the result that the schedule waa -passed at the lowered, rate. Stnator Aldrlch pro posed to make the duty SLT0 per 100 pounds, and had moved to place It at that figure, but Senator Burkett amendment to Sena tor Aldrlch's motion waa carried by a decisive vote. The reduced duty make the barbed wire tariff practically a mere Inspection tax and a sweeping change from any former tariffs ever carried by this achedule. Sena tor Burkttt propose to watch this amend ment closely and will ms.ke every effort to ee that It is not lot In oonfrenc. Resolatlon by Mr. Gore. Aa soon aa a Quorum waa announced -In the senate today Mr. Oore,' he blind sena tor from Oklahoma, precipitated s, lively debate by asking Immediate consideration of a resolution Instructing the committee on finance to obtain by Investigation th Import prices of various articles of general and ordinary consumption and also tha wholesale and retail price of such articles when used In this country. Tha object of the resolution Is to determine whether th retailers of the country are practicing ex tortion. In moving the resolution be referred to the committee on finance, Mr. Hale said It conferred no new authority upon that com mittee and could only embarrass It. The senator declared that the retail deal ers had been held up before the country aa practicing extortion and he wanted to know the facts to determine whether that waa true. "If the retailers are robbers," he said, "they should be held up to the wrath and execration of their countrymen." Mr. Oore said he had Inveattgated and found that the pitchers referred to by Sena tor Scott as selling at wholesale at 90 cent a dozen, retailed at 15 cents and sometimes 10 cents each Instead of 16 cents as stated. Consideration of the resolution was post poned until Monday. Alabaman Gets Faaay. Mr. Johnston of Alabama treated th tariff humorously. He congratulated th majority that It had placed "spunk" un the free list, and said If there waa more of that article the republicans would would make a better tariff bill. "So far aa I have observed," said Mr. Johnston, "not a single democrat haa ad vocated protection for a single article, and in no case, ao far as I have observed, has a proposal been made to Impose a revenue duty greater than 30 per cent, whilst tlfo average rate under thla bill la nearly 46 per cent. Reductions have been made In this hill In only three schedules and It la notion, able that two of these Include article largely produced In the south, and In tha other the reduction 1a less "than 1 par cent. Protection has enough sins to answer for without adding to them unfairly discrimi native." When the steel schedule was taken up Mr. Aldrlch withdrew the amendment of the committee on finance Increasing the duly on structural steel from .8 to .4 of 1 cent a pound, and the house provision of .8 of 1 cent per pound waa adopted. Aldrlch Fears far Steel, Referring to an amendment to this par agraph not permitting structural steel to be assembled when imported, Mr. Aldrlch said: "The rates of duty In this Industry have been cut nearly one. half and I desire to place on record the 'great apprehension that we may be committing a grav In justice to this great industry." He said the manufacturers of Belgium and Germany may be able under thee rates to send In their structural Iron and steel -when they have a surplus or the con ditions warrant such action. Senators Cummins. Newlsnds and Smith of South Carolina, contended that even with th reduced rate the duty was too high. Reading fro'n The, testimony of Mr. Car negie before the way and means commit tee concerning profits In the steel Industry, Mr. Tillman declared Mr. Carnegie had ma4e a vast amount of money by favorit ism In legislation. "I will not say by dishonesty," ssld Mr. Tillman, "because he hss only taken ad vantage of the laws wa pass, b tuhe has made more money than the entire bunch of us here put together and there are some rich men in thla senate. He has given away more tian all the democrats of this body possess ten times as much I expect."
