A Hicond committee amendment fixing specific rates for the purpose of prevent ing undervaluation was adopted 39k to Taking the floor when Mr. Aldrlch aoked for an aye and no vote on cotton cloth schedules today, Hcnator Dolllver made the aonuioilai rafters ring with his denuncia tion of the speech made by the Rhode Is land senator last night on that schedule. "I desire tu avoid any harsh criticism nf what hus been done," he said in open ing' hi jemarks, "but 1 am not able to avoid a plain, straightforward statement of what this committee now asks the sen ate to do. "Men are asked," continued Mr. Dolll ver. "to cast their votes here not upon testimony but upon authority of a com mitter, and it becomes my duty to Inquire Into the sacredness of that substitute for factH and figures." - Mr. A Mitch arose to leave tha chamber. "I hope the senator will remain to hear what 1 have to say," suggested the Iowa senator in an appealing tone. "1 had an engagement," said Mr. Aldrlch, smiling and hesitating. "Well, you have an engagement here," retorted the Iowan. "I say you will not turn your back upon what I have to say without taking the moral consequences that mill naturally arise In such a case." Mr. Dolllver then exhibited a copy of a petition of merchants of New Tork, which was a declaration against any In crease of the tariff duties. Responding to a -request by the senator from Rhode iKlaud, Mr. Pol liver read the names of the merchants. "Please state which of them are im porters." said Mr. Aldrlch. "Well, some of them, are leading mer chants of this country," responded Mr. Dolllver. ,' A cross fire of criticism and defense followed. Mr. Dolllver, Mr. Aldrlch and lC(r. Flint participating. It pertained to the Interests of the signers of that peti tion, Messrs. Aldrlch and Flint contending thdlt they were Importers and Interested In tpw duty, while the Iowa senator con tinued to urge their general representative petition. " "It la a strange thing," declared Mr. Dolllver, rising to full height and speaking In his boldest tone, "to find the leaders of the repulblcan party reproaching the merchants of the country with extrava gance whioh has grown up In connection with the protective tariff." Defends Exhibition of Samples, Referring to cartoons of himself repre sented as exhibiting samples In the United States senate, he declared that since that exhibition, others had adopted his Vnethod of "reaching the Intelligence of his hear ers." ' He referred pointedly to Senator Lodge as having "also shown his sam ples," but while the Iowa senator spoke, his Massachusetts colleague walked out of the chamber without appearing to notice the allusion. Declaring that the cotton duties had been Increased in the pending bill over those of 'the Dlngley law, Mr. Dolllver read from a speech by Mr. Bn.oot. II said that sen ator told the people the duties of the cot ton schedule had been "equalized," but that tha rates had not been lowered.' Likewise the senator from Rhode Island had come to the senate to say the ratea had not been raised. Ridicullug the possibility of "equalising" the rates without raising some or lowering others, Mr. Dolllver launched upon a com parison between tha Dlngley law and thy Wilson bilt lie commented on the Dlng ley law as Interpreted by Mr. Alexloh and by the appraisers. "Then we have two Dlngley lawaT" In terposed Mr. Tillman. ' "Ten." responded tha Iowa senator, "one on the statute book and one In the Imagi nation of the senator from Rhode Island." Hldleolee Average Rate. Mv Dolllver ridiculed talk about average- Jatea, when some rates actually had been increased. The equalisation" that hud been effected, he said, had been leav ing the high rates up and bringing the lower ones nearer their level. Speaking of the need for accurate Information, ha aald: "Senators cannot convert the senate of tha United States from a great deliberative body to an aggregation of Intellectual come-ons." 1 Responding to side expressions of surprise by some senators near him. he added: "That Is a greeji goods proposition." He spoke of various people who had dvaltngs with the New York customs hquse. saving tt had been suspected that they had "'rnia on the pay roll engaged In the administration of the customs laws." Taking up sitother phao of the speech of the senator from Rhode luland, Mr, Dolllver .rtllclod that senator for hav ing had lead In the senate an anonymous clipping stating that 1600.000 would be lost In tin, form of duties by reason of a ceclMon In the United State supreme curt because of a contention over the i evtlon wuulhei the duty shouM be 33 or 30 pur tcni. .All the Importations of rk.t'i of that kind at New Tork la 1197, In rtid. wore worth only $160. 00 and the realtor i,i dispute Involved ouly S per (til of ttrrount V.t." he aald, "that Is the kind of '-iimp that U here substituted for Luiah declared' he had written t' ' miry department for the total aoount Involved In thecaae and had been told it was $400,000.
